Snoqualmie/North Bend police and a regional detective need help from the public in solving a stabbing and sexual assault that happened late Sunday in North Bend. Shortly after 11 p.m. Sunday, March 9, police responded to a 911 call from a business on the 400 block of Mount Si Boulevard in North Bend. Officers found a woman who had been stabbed once in the chest, duct taped at her feet and wrists, and sexually assaulted. She was the last employee in the business and was exiting the back door when an unknown Hispanic man forced her back into the premises. She was transported to Overlake Hospital and is in stable condition. A detective with the Major Crimes Task Force, a regional partnership of which Snoqualmie is a member, is investigating. Anyone with a tip should report it to police by calling (425) 888-3333. Callers can remain anonymous.

The Carnation beat Deputy is center of Lower Valley city’s new law enforcement contract BY CAROL LADWIG Staff Reporter

Carnation’s new police officer is back. Scott Allen, who got his first job in law enforcement 17 years ago with Carnation’s police department, is once again patrolling the city, this time as both a King County Sheriff ’s Deputy and Carnation’s dedicated full-time cop. “For the last two years or so, I’ve been wanting to get back to patrol,” Allen said, “I’ve been wanting to get back out here to familiar territory, because I know all the people who work out here.” Allen had spent most of his career after joining King County in the Snoqualmie Valley, either as a detective or shared patrol, but had spent the past seven years as a detective in Seattle. When he heard about the unexpected opening in Carnation—the city learned in October that Duvall was ending its police contract, effective Jan. 1—he jumped for it. SEE COPS, 8

Snoqualmie Hospital District Board interviews crop of would-be commissioners BY SETH TRUSCOTT Editor

More people want to be on the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital’s board of commissioners now, than ever before. Finance professionals, business owners, veterans, and one former Valley nurse among them, seven applicants for King County Public Hospital District’s open Position 3 seat aired their ambitions Thursday night, March 6, in open interviews with the board. That is more interest than commission president Joan Young has ever seen for the organization, which has begun construction of a new campus on Snoqualmie Ridge. “We want this to be as fair as possible,” said commissioner Dave Speikers. The order of interviewees was randomly drawn from a hat. Candidates left the room then returned in order, so that none got a chance to preview the questions. Candidates, Robert Merikle, Emma Heron, Kevin Hauglie, Herschel Backues, Darryl Wright, Sandy Kangas and Ryan Roberts each had the chance to explain their interests in the hospital commission. An eighth, former Snoqualmie Police Chief Jim Schaeffer, applied but was unable to attend Seth Truscott/Staff Photo Thursday’s interviews. “Great answers, good candidates,” Hospital commission applicant Emma Heron states her case for wanting to join the board—helping the said Speikers afterward. “I learned a lot tonight, said board memValley’s disadvanted residents. Behind her is appliber Gene Pollard. “We would all agree that cant Richard Merikle, left, and audience member the biggest impediment to a true demoJoe Larson, center. cratic system is apathy. What’s great is you guys are here, not apathetic, engaged. Every one of you, whether you win or lose on this little competition, have a lot to offer to the hospital district, and health care in the Valley.” SEE HOSPITAL, 10

North Bend looks for savings in new EF&R deal Two recent events confirmed the value of Eastside Fire & Rescue to North Bend. One was an initial agreement by most of the partners to pay a larger share of the costs in order to preserve the service. The other was a long-awaited fire protection rating improvement that will lower premiums in April. Deputy Fire Chief Bud Backer told North Bend’s City Council about the change Jan. 7, predicting the new rating would lower insurance costs for city residents as well as many in the surrounding area. North Bend’s rating changed from a 5 to a 4. “In fact, all of Eastside Fire improved to a 4,” Backer said, “and this improvement will take effect April 1, 2014.” The change, announced by the Washington Surveying and Rating Bureau, was initiated by North Bend nearly three years ago. Backer explained that the city had requested a new fire protection rating after acquiring additional water rights, and the bureau chose to expand the rating review to include all of the Eastside Fire partners, North Bend, Carnation, Sammamish, Issaquah, and Fire Districts 10 and 38. “They ended up doing a rating for the entire service… so it was a new animal for the rating bureau to deal with, but they saw the efficiencies that Eastside Fire provides, and I believe they rewarded us rather well,” Backer said. The process improved North Bend, Carnation and Fire District 10 from ratings of 5, and Fire District 38 from a 6. Some rural residents will also benefit from the change, Backer said, preventing an expected jump in insurance costs to come when the state mapping system identifies how far these properties are from fire hydrants.

Merit badge in continuity


Snoqualmie Valley Record • March 12, 2014 • 5

Why we welcome Scouts to the office Continuity. That’s what I show the Cub Scouts, every time they tour our office. And that happens more often than you think. About half a dozen times a year, I open the door at our Snoqualmie office to groups of Tigers, Webelos and assorted Cubs, to help them earn their media badges. A badge entails a trip to a local media business, and since we’re the closest, many den moms and troop leaders come to us. Of course, it’s not always the quietest hour, when you’ve got a dozen 7-year-old boys together, a form of critical mass. Full disclosure: Some of our staff try to be absent during this cavalcade. But for me, and for our publisher, the always communicable William Shaw, this is a captive audience. Not only do I answer SETH TRUSCOTT the usual questions, among them Valley Record Editor ‘How do you get stories?’ (most of them come to you, whether you want them or not) and ‘Where do you print the paper?’ (a huge press in Everett. The one here was dismantled years ago, and is not, contrary to myth, buried under the MK Properties office). With the cubs, one of my favorite stops on the tour is the archive. It’s where we keep the bound volumes, the musty, printed stacks of old newspapers, some nearly a yard tall. Old journalist call it ‘the morgue.’ Maybe that’s because half of the people named in these historic records—ours date back to the ‘40s, older are on film at the North Bend Library—are dead. I prefer to think of these archives as the preserved memory of lives. I ask a Scout or two tell me their birth date. We’ll flip to the mid-2000s, and discover how Snoqualmie and North Bend were booming or struggling with growth or lack of it, or transforming at the very moment these Cubs entered life. Would you believe me if I told you that doesn’t emake you feel old? Needless to say, I generally don’t repeat this process for the moms. But sometimes, you can do this for the grandparents. One curious Scout asked to go back to the 1940s, looking for the World War II-era news that a grandpa or maybe great-grandpa lived through. He was seeking continuity, and that’s exactly what I do this for—to preserve and transmit the lives and lessons of the Valley. I’ve never been a teacher, but I try to give these kids lessons, something they’ll take with them. Last time, it was just one Cub, and his little sister, along for the ride. Lectures are boring for a 7-year-old. So I made it hands-on. The boy got to handle my digital recorder. Sister got a legal pad, big in her tiny hands, and a pencil. I had them come up with questions for each other, then interview each other. It’s hands-on training, and I hope they remember their taste of being, pardon the pun, cub journalists. They saw how it all starts, with a question and an answer. Sometimes, I wish that Scouting authorities would move the media badge to an older age. Older boys, and also girls, as I’d welcome Girl Scouts and Camp Fire Girls as well, would stand to benefit more from exploring how the news is made, how it begins and ends at a personal level, and how much curation of history happens in these rare places, hometown newspaper offices. It could spark ideas about future careers, where communication is going, and why the various medias are different. If you’ve ever asked why newspapers are still around in the age of the smartphone, I would answer that the very presence of a business that tries, however imperfectly, to chronicle the lives of its communities and neighbors, whether they want to be chronicled or not, still has value. I think the Scout groups realize that, if not before their visit, then after. Our door is open. Your merit badge is waiting.

Time to spring ahead, OUT of the should we keep DST?

Letters to the Editor

A lockdown of all Snoqualmie and North Bend Schools ended just before 10 a.m. last Thursday, March 6, when police apprehended a man who had threatened to kill people at “Snoqualmie High School.” No one was hurt in the incident, which began at 6:43 a.m. when the subject called 911 to issue his threats. “Somebody did call in 911 threatening to do harm,” at Mount Si High School, the district’s only traditional high school, said Snoqualmie Police Captain Nick Almquist in a phone call after the man’s capture, “and to basically kill law enforcement if he sees them.” School officials were notified of the threat, and as a precaution, they initiated a modified lockdown of most North Bend and Snoqualmie school buildings. King County dispatch kept the subject on the phone for most of the incident, Almquist said, and were able to determine his location in a North Bend home. While sheriff ’s deputies gathered a tactical team and negotiators in preparation of confronting the man, Snoqualmie police brought in additional officers to establish a presence at North Bend, Opstad, and Snoqualmie Elementary Schools, Twin Falls Middle School, Two Rivers and the Mount Si Freshman Campus. Police also established a command center at Mount Si High School, working with school administrators to coordinate communications. The modified lockdown secured all entrances to the buildings, but allowed the school day to proceed as it normally would. “At this time, it’s just a precaution,” said school district spokeswoman Carolyn Malcolm, during the lockdown. Malcolm was notified at 9:50 a.m. that the man who’d made the threats was taken into custody peaceably. “He basically surrendered,” said Almquist. He couldn’t say whether the man had any weapons, or comment further on the case, since King County has jurisdiction. All school lockdowns were called off by 10 a.m. on Thursday.

Raven video goes to Washington

Snoqualmie Valley Record • March 12, 2014 • 7

Middle School student club’s technology video gets noticed BY CAROL LADWIG Staff Reporter

Raven TV at Twin Falls Middle School is pretty cool, but the President of the United States is not likely to sit down and watch an episode. The guy just doesn’t have time to watch a lot of TV. On Friday, Feb. 28, though, he freed up an afternoon, to watch a different Twin Falls production. “Now They Have a Chance,” a three-minute video by Twin Falls, is in the lineup of the first-ever White House Youth Film Festival. The 10 girls on the video team, all of them Tech Team members, found out after returning from mid-winter break that they received an Honorable Mention for their work. What that means is “We didn’t get invited to the White House, because that would have been (for) the best, and just a couple of groups got invited,” said video team member Jessica Stringer, “but we got put on the website, and we’re in the film festival.” None of the girls seemed disappointed; Honorable Mention in a contest with thousands of entries is a great achievement, especially for the team’s first try at a competition. Besides, “I think the President is going to watch this, which will be really cool!” said Mallory Golic, also on the team. The White House Film Festival is a national competition, inviting students K-12 to create a video on how technology is used in schools. The girls, nearly all eighth grade Tech Team members who, as teacher Jana Mabry puts it, “grew up with (technology). They don’t fear it any more. They are at the perfect stage to blossom,” had been working on several technology projects, plus the monthly episodes of Raven TV featuring school values and announcements, and couldn’t decide what to film, at first. “We were running all over the school, filming everything,” Golic said. One project soon stood out, though, their work with Dillen Fullagar. Their sixthgrade classmate is in a wheelchair and didn’t have the manual dexterity he needed to create an Egyptian artifact, required for his class’s Egypt Walk at the end of January. The team helped Fullagar, who can use a computer without difficulty, take his digital design of an obelisk from computer file to physical reality with the school’s new threedimensional printer, which sounds a lot easier than it was. Mabry explained that the printer was ordered in November, after the school received a grant, but it didn’t arrive until January 2. The Egypt Walk was Jan. 30. Once it arrived, the team had trouble getting Fullagar’s file loaded, until just days before the event. In the video, Fullagar says working with the MakerBot printer was “fantabulous and it gives kids like me a chance!” “How does the technology help me participate? Well, it allows me to participate is a better answer,” he continues. “Without it, I might be seeing an F in the grade book,

Twin Falls student Dillen Fullagar talks on camera about how technology made it possible for him to complete a class assignment, building an artifact for the sixth grade class’s Museum Walk last month. He used the school’s 3-D printer to create an Egyptian obelisk, with help from the Twin Falls student Tech Team and staff. or my parents would have to be doing it for me.” Mount Si High School graduate Dominique Seaman was also featured in the video, describing her experience of being hospitalized after a surgery, but still being able to collaborate with her class through video phone calls. High school teacher Joe Dockery’s class interviewed and filmed Seaman for this part of the video, and the Twin Falls team incorporated the footage that worked best for their project. It was a bit of a scramble. “We had less than a month to do it,” says Grace Himka, “but we actually did it all in a week and a half.” Working during school and after school—“toward the end we didn’t even care if only one of us could stay late,” Golic said—the girls did everything from choosing a topic, to shooting the video, interviewing and re-interviewing Fullagar—they wanted to ask him different questions after editing the footage of Seaman’s interview, Golic said—editing the final product, adding music and credits, then adjusting the level of the music, and, maybe the hardest part of all, choosing a title. “We knew we wanted to say they have a chance,” said Stringer, but they frequently changed their minds on the best wording. They also knew right away that they didn’t want themselves to feature in the video, except in the opening narration. The video shows Fullagar repeating the questions he’s asked before answering them, which the girls asked him to do. “I think it’s better that it was just him,” said Kaila Nilsson. Fullagar’s participation made the video possible, and his already-announced goal of joining the same team that helped him complete a school project gives the entire effort a circular nature. “One of the neatest things of this whole project was Dillen saying ‘You know, everybody involved learned something,’” said Mabry. As the opening narration of the video says, “These are smart kids, but because of their disabilities, they could not take advantage of the same opportunities as other students. Now they can. Now they have a chance.”

COPS: CARNATION FROM 1 “It gave me a chance to get back into uniform, get back onto the street,” he explained. “I like doing street work.” Since starting with the city on Jan. 2, he’s made a point of getting onto the streets regularly. “Things I try to do every day are sit down here at the school zone,” he said, pointing toward Carnation Elementary School from his office above City Hall. “I put my car out there, be visible. And I try to get out on foot once a day and talk to four or five businesses, and then I try and get out on foot at least once a day on one of the trails.” It’s familiar territory for him, but in January, he said he’d need some time to get a really good handle on what’s happening in the community, and identifying the needs. “It’s going to take me a good three months, at least, Carnation-based sheriff’s deputy to come up with what the Scott Allen real issues are here,” he said. “I have a good idea of what they are going to be, but there’s not a whole lot going on out here, so it takes some time to figure out what the real issues are and how we’re going to address them.” Drugs are a big problem here, as they are everywhere in King County. “Drugs are huge everywhere. It’s not just the Snoqualmie Valley, it’s all over. It’s Sammamish, it’s Seattle, it’s Bellevue. It’s rampant,” he said. Most of the crime seems to be centered on heroin and meth, not just dealing and using, but the incidental crimes that accompany drug users, like burglaries and auto thefts. He is monitoring three known drug houses and asking fellow deputies on shared patrol to do the same as they pass

King County residents got their property tax bills in February. Countywide, total property valuations are approaching pre-recession levels at $340.6 billion—in 2008, total property value was $341 billion—and are up 7.6 percent overall from 2013, which was $314.7 billion. “Property values for King County have continued to show signs of strengthening as we emerge from the Great Recession,” said King County Assessor Lloyd Hara. “Of the 86 residential geographic areas in King County designated by the Department of Assessments, we saw a residential valuation decrease only in 10 areas for the 2013 assessment year.” In some parts of King County, up to 50 percent of local 2014 property taxes might be voter-approved tax measures. In the majority of cases, an increase in property taxes is due to voter-approved property tax measures. These are typically school, fire, or other levies or bonds.

through town. He’s also been instrumental in making sure they pass through town frequently, by making his office available to other officers, for paperwork, interviews, and other tasks that require an office. “This will most likely become a hub,” Allen said, particularly now that the North Bend substation has closed. The station closed March 8, when the sheriff ’s contract with North Bend ended, and a new five-year contract began with the Snoqualmie Police Department. Allen and the other deputies will still have to report in to the nearest official substation, in Sammamish, every few days, and “this will just be a place for deputies to come in and interview people up here and take reports once in a while.” Businesses and residents have already begun to notice the increased number of patrol cars in the area, and are commenting on it. Allen says he’s gotten a very positive response from the citizens he’s met so far, and hopes that will continue. “I want to accomplish the city’s request to make the people pleased with their local police service, by being visible and approachable, so people have a sense of security,” he said. Carnation doesn’t have a whole lot of crime, Allen says. Aside from drug-related problems, he said there’s a “smattering” of other issues, and “most of it occurs in unincorporated areas.” Because Allen is a county deputy, he is not stopped by city limits, though, and can go anywhere that needs help. The same goes for his fellow deputies, he said. “We scratch each other’s backs. They want to help me out, and I want to help them out.” It’s a mutually beneficial relationship that also helps out the city, he says. “The city’s paying for one cop, 40 hours a week. That’s me. So, the city of Carnation has now become a patrol district, and they’re paying for one cop, but they’re getting everybody.”

What is Pokémon?

Two Carnation brothers are both skilled in the game of Pokémon. Henry Maxon, left, Winter Regional Champion at a game competition at Salem, helped train his brother Charlie, right, who took second in his division.

Monster master Carnation teen Henry Maxon is a force in the world of competitive Pokémon

Pokémon is a set of card and video games made by Nintendo. Short for “Pocket Monsters,” it is based on the traditional hobby of insect collecting. Players collect and train fantasy monsters, then battle their menageries against other players. Players of all ages and skills are encouraged to participate in Organized Play events. For more information on future tournaments including dates, locations, prizes, and tournament rules and regulations, visit

A 13-year-old Carnation kid is making a big name for himself in the world of Pokémon. Henry Maxon is one of the best players of the Pokémon video game in the nation, and indeed the world. After a weekend of head-to-head battles, he earned the title of Pokémon Winter Regional Champion at the 2014 Pokémon Winter Regional Championships, held in January at Salem, Ore. That means he’s among the five top champions to compete in the Pokémon Trading Card Game right now in North America. Henry wears a trademark Cookie Monster hat in all his tournaments. Part of a Pokémon league that meets in Redmond, Henry has played this game since he was 3. “The Pokémon tournament scene for me is two things that I love, competing and Pokémon,” said Henry. “I have met great people and probably gotten a whole lot smarter just from Pokemon alone. The main reason I’d say I play the game is because of how great the community is. I have definitely met some of my best friends.” Henry is a good student and a really good kid, according to his dad, Lou. The game is his passion, and he and his fellow players have a tight bond. “We definitely encourage him,” Lou said. Pokémon seems to stimulate skills in probability and math. Lou describes it as “Paper-Rock-Scissors meets chess meets predicting sports scores.” Henry has taken his little brother, Charlie, age 7, under his wing. At Salem, the family training paid off. In Charlie’s first-ever competition, he took second place in his age division. In 2012, Henry’s tournament successes meant that he was incorporated as a character into the Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2 video games. Looking ahead, he will compete this spring for points to go to national competition in Indianapolis, Ind.

District bylaws don’t define how the board chooses a replacement. So, after 70 minutes of listening and a short discussion, the four board members agreed to each write down their top three choices, then count the results. The board will discuss the two finalists and vote at their March 20 meeting. If the board can’t come to an agreement on its new member, the matter rests with the King County Council.

Robert Merikle Employed by a biotech company, Merikle touted his work in finance and with non-profits. The Snoqualmie resident is an Irvine, Calif., native, who wants to add to the board while learning from it. A Snoqualmie Parks Board member, Merikle applied because of the big changes coming for the hospital. “This is your one bite at the apple,” he said. “Five, 10, 25 years down the road, the decisions made now will affect the community. I think this is an exciting time to join, and hopefully make an impact.” Asked by Pollard what his unique contribution would be, “Definitely, without a doubt, it’s the finance side of things,” Merikle replied. He works to maximize shareholder value. “With non-profits, success is never measured by how much money you can make,” he added. “I enjoy the strategic, philosophical decisions on how you measure and achieve success. “My philosophy is that you need some type of disagreement,” Merikle said. “If you’re just sitting there rubber-stamping everything, you’re not having as meaningful a conversation as you need to.”

Emma Heron Heron, a Snoqualmie Ridge resident, threw her hat in the ring to help the elderly, vulnerable and underserved residents of the Valley. “My goal is to continue to deliver quality health care that respects the dignity of everyone in the community,” she said. “If I am appointed, I will do my due diligence to make sure all work is transparent and good. I am encouraged to learn, listen, think and plan for future work, which I hope will meet success.” Heron shared her experience on non-profit boards to help fight kidney EMMA HERON disease, reduce violence, and advocate for the rights of the elderly. “Boards are not perfect,” Heron said. “Everyone has their own opinions. The key to making sure everything is in harmony is to listen to one another and to weigh all the possibilities.” “What’s important to remember is listening to community, what their needs are,” Heron said. “Assess what’s out there, analyze the risk and involve the community.”

Kevin Hauglie This Fall City resident and former commissioner wants his seat back. Hauglie is seeking position 3 because its former occupant, Pollard, challenged him for re-election and won in an unprecedented commissioner-versus-commissioner election last fall. Hauglie said he wants to be an active participant, and see the construction of the new hospital completed. “I always have a posture of being approachable,” he said. “Anybody who has questions can come and get the truth. It may not be what they want to hear, but they’ll get the truth. As public officials and as human beings, we have KEVIN HAUGLIE an obligation to do that.” Hauglie emphasized his nine years of experience on the board,



a time when the hospital’s revenues rose from $300,000 a month to $2.5 million. As a commissioner, Hauglie said he learned “to be patient, to listen to your executive team, your fellow commissioners. “We control a lot of money—we’ve got a $30 million budget. We’re the second biggest employer in the Valley. We touch a lot of lives. It’s a huge responsibility.” Asked about his perception of the district, Hauglie called it a fundamental, basic service that the community needs to support and use. “We have a hospital that has through challenging times made some very difficult decisions,” Hauglie said. As a commissioner, he would keep an open door, continue pushing for the best medical practices, and improve public perceptions. “We have an obligation to continue to move that perception of reality in a positive way.”

Herschel Backues Asked why he applied, Backues, a 30-year Valley resident, shared his rocky history with the district. “I’m coming from a different perspective,” he told the board. “I’ve been attending these meetings for over 20 years. In that period, it seems like there’s always friction. I’d like to smooth that out.” Backues admitted to his negative feeling for the new hospital in the past, when he called it unnecessary due to Swedish Hospital’s proximity in Issaquah. “I don’t apologize for my attitude HERSCHEL BACKUES before,” he said. “But I’ve had a change of heart over this. Now, my objectives are to make this hospital work. “Contracts are signed. Ground’s broken. The hospital is going to be built.” Backues touted business experience, how he overcomes issues “with cool head and quiet demeanor,” and looks at the big picture. “I don’t go along to get along but I can be persuaded and I do persuasion myself. I enjoy it.” As an active district resident, he recalled bringing in detailed concerns before the board, only to be brusquely halted when his three minutes for public comment were up. “What’s that all about?” asked Backues, who challenged the board to truly listen to constituents’ concerns. When it comes before the board, it’s ‘Follow the rules and sit down.’ I don’t think that’s necessary,” he added. “So you’ve got to spend an extra 20 minutes? People come here in their excitement and interest in the hospital.”

Kangas, of North Bend, would bring her background as a businesswoman and nurse into play on the commission. Kangas says she has a passion for rural health care. “I would hope to bring to the board more consciousness than I currently see about quality,” she said. Kangas believes she would be more involved, and approachable to staff and the community. “The board wants to be involved in the hospital in a positive way, giving their expertise in a way that enhances the hospital,” she said. “No one’s talking to you.” Kangas contrasted herself, say- SANDY KANGAS ing she’s more at home in that setting, and would bring information forward: “I can get the goods.”

Ryan Roberts

Wright, a Snoqualmie resident, rattled off a host of qualifications: Master’s degrees in organizational development and public administration, lesser degrees in sports medicine and health sciences, work in private, public and non-profit sectors, military service as a liaison with medical facilities in Iraq, family traditions. He’s already deeply involved, as chairman of the Snoqualmie planning commission, a board member of the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital Foundation, as a Community Emergency Response Team member, and as a Rotarian. “I have a track record that shows I DARRYL WRIGHT want to be involved,” he said. “I love giving back to the community.” Wright said he seeks fiscal sustainability, enhanced community trust and ensured local health and well-being. He recognized, from the results of last fall’s election, which brought in the newcomer, Dariel Norris, and ousted Hauglie in

Sandy Kangas

Roberts moved to Snoqualmie with his young family. He sees the hospital as part of their future. “There’s a lot of young families here like us,” he said. They need access to first-class health care. “Many of us were excited, happy that this new facility is being built,” Roberts said. “It’s going to convert some doubts into a real plus for this Valley.” A former naval aviator who now works in commercial insurance and risk management, Roberts said he advises hospital clients and understands the industry, with a working knowledge of the Affordable Care Act RYAN ROBERTS and how it affects the industry. “You’re not going to need to bring me up to speed on the business of health care,” he said. Roberts wants to build bridges, make the district thrive. He says he would inspire administration to consider many options during a time of change. “This district is at a tactical juncture,” he said. “There’s a huge opportunity in how we’re going to capitalize on that shiny new building. Right now, we’re capturing 10 percent of the Valley’s health care spend. If we can move that needle by 1 percent, that’s an additional $3 million to the topline.” “You have new participants in the system,” he said. This year and next year, as you have Medicare and Medicaid take-up, you’re going to have a new customer at your front door—people who have never had an insurance policy before, but have a lot of high-cost co-pays…. What’s the board going to do, strategically?” If selected, commissioners must attend regular monthly board meetings and committee meetings. Commissioners are paid $114 for each day or portion of a day spent in official meetings of the district. The chosen applicant would run for election in 2015. • Learn about the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital Commission at

place of Pollard, “how the residents within our district view the hospital district and what they want to see going froward. I want to honor that.” As a commissioner, he said he would make sure everyone is heard. He espoused collaboration and partnerships, and would bring college training classes to the hospital campus. Wright said he also wants to partner with the Veterans Administration to offer health programs through the hospital. “Out of the 39,000 residents in our district, there are 2,750 veterans,” he said. He also would create a new hospital committee for civic engagement and outreach. “That’s one nice thing about this agency,” Wright said. “It’s in a position where it can reach out and touch the lives of people in this Valley.”

As much a reunion as a farewell party, the open house at North Bend’s now-closed police substation brought together more than 40 deputies and about that many community members Thursday, Feb. 27. Visitors swapped stories of policing and pranks, deputies traded jabs about who did all the work, and everyone expressed their thanks and how much the officers would be missed. Roger Connelly, one of North Bend’s last city cops and one of the first to serve here with the county, broke out his old KCSO jacket for the occasion. The gathering marked the end of North Bend’s 40-year contract with the Sheriff’s office for police services, and the start of the Snoqualmie Police Department’s coverage of the city.

That's the Camp Terry song, created by Charlie, an avid camper who’s been coming to this YMCA summer camp at Preston since he was old enough to go, with help from his family. Children and teens learn responsibility, core values and the love of the outdoors at Camp Terry, located by the bank of the Raging River. As the largest provider of summer camps in the U.S., the YMCA makes sure kids have fun but also learn to socialize, share and develop new interests. All camps of the YMCA of Greater Seattle, of which the year-old Snoqualmie Valley YMCA is a part, nurture the healthy, successful growth of every camper by emphasizing values such as caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

Happy campers explore the Raging River Valley at the Y’s summer camp at Preston, Camp Terry.

Excitement and wonder


Staff make sure parents know about the activities their child takes part in every day. Take Charlie’s story. In a testimonial for the camp, his mother explains how Charlie participated in day camps at the Y when he was younger, but as soon as he was old enough to try Camp Terry he went, going every summer for five years. Dropped off each day, he was warmly greeted by staff and counselors. Charlie’s family celebrated his birthday party there and attended several Family Camps. “Charlie is captivated by the idea of the camp mascot, Woody the Wood Elf,’” his mother wrote. “Charlie wrote letters to Woody each time he attended Camp Terry. The letters Woody wrote back are treasures we will be putting in Charlie’s scrapbook.” • To learn more about Camp Terry and the Snoqualmie Valley YMCA, visit summer-camps-at-the-y or call (425) 256-3115.

Buhler bids farewell to real estate

Eight things you didn’t know about the new home of North Bend’s Garwood Dental

Harry Buhler of John L. Scott has retired from real estate after 41 years, 18 of it affiliated with the North Bend office. Prior to that, he was associate broker and manager of North Bend’s Eastside Realty office for 23 years. “How times have changed since I started selling real estate in 1973,” remembered Buhler. “Beginning that year, I would try to drum up business by going door-knocking in an attempt to obtain a listing. Back in those days, there was very little competition in real estate, as no agents would drive way up to North Bend or Snoqualmie. In meeting potential clients... I would ask if they were thinking about selling. Most were not. However, one neighbor down the street was thinking of selling. Sure enough, the neighbor was HARRY ready to sell. That was how I BUHLER got my first real estate listing. “In those days, almost everybody knew their neighbors, and nobody even thought of locking their doors. Today, most people have deadbolt locks on their houses. “Most of my business clients were loggers in the 1970s. I would show two or three homes and they usually bought one. In that era, the average three-bedroom home sold for $20,000 to $24,000. The Farm Home Administration homes were priced much lower, starting at $16,000 for a three-bedroom, one-bath house with 960 square feet. “A couple years later, the price increased to $21,000, which my clients thought was too high. The same house today would sell for $200,000. “Building lots in the ‘60s and ‘70s sold for $2,500 to $4,500. Today, those lots would be valued at $75,000 or more. “Most of the building lots were in Wilderness Rim or Riverbend. In 1979, I sold 85 lots to one builder, none over $4,500. Today, it is difficult to find even one affordable, building lot. “Before the fax machine came into use, I would have to mail my purchase and sale agreements to clients, which would take days. By the time my buyers received their offer, they had buyer’s remorse, so no sale was finalized. Fax machines were of utmost importance in sales. Of course, today, we have the Internet and many other options. The hightech era has taken over all phases of the real estate industry. “When it came to home inspections, there were none in the 1970s. Today, buyers want an inspection on a two-bedroom shack! “During the real estate bust in 2008, many people lost their homes or investment properties. Home prices fell dramatically. Due to the battered economy, many agents left the business. Today, though, many have returned with the improved business climate. It is predicted that new home construction will be at a five-year high in 2014. Therefore, sales will increase accordingly. “Interest rates in the ‘80s were 16 percent, later falling to 12 percent which agents thought were reasonable. Today, home loan interest rates are 4.5 to 5 percent, and probably will increase to 5.5 to 6 percent in the coming year, but still very affordable, historically speaking. “How times have changed over the years. Life in general was much simpler in the ‘70s and early ‘80s. Some still like the good old days!”

North Bend dentist Kelly Garwood’s new digs in downtown North Bend are full of surprises, some of which she may show you at her open house, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 20. Garwood moved last December into her new location, the former home of North Bend Montessori school. An extensive remodel, a new home in the heart of North Bend, and some smart additions have made for positive changes for Garwood, her team and her patients. Garwood shared these differences at her new office.

Local history A former renter, Garwood bought the building at 142 Main Avenue last fall as a retirement investment. Most people know it as a former Montessori school. But, decades ago, it was the office of the local phone company. One of her discoveries during the remodel was the old company log book. The phone company’s cinder-block utility building is now storage.

Ambidextrous space Garwood added one extra patient station, for a total of five chairs, at her new place. The stations themselves are now larger and more private. The extra room gets put to good use by the dentist. She’s left-handed, so trays and tools swivel. Before, Garwood had to stop, move patients and herself to do some jobs. Now, it’s easier for everyone. “Anybody can work in here,” she says.

Mountain views You can see Mount Si from every room. “We have one lady that brings her binoculars, so she can look for goats while she’s waiting,” Garwood said.

Master switch One seemingly small feature is the one Garwood’s very excited about. It’s a single lightswitch in the back that controls every light in the building. “It’s brilliant,” she said. “There’s a lot of lights in here. At the end of the day, you don’t have to go through and turn off every one!”

Learn to brush Garwood added a special alcove, common at orthodontic offices but less so at dentists, for teaching children—and grown-ups—how to brush properly. A floor-length mirror lets the little ones see their technique. A box of toy rewards sits under the counter. This alcove was former assistant Helen Jensen’s idea.

More energy “Staff has said they feel less tired at the end of the day, because it’s more ergonomically organized,” Garwood said. “You’re doing the same amount of work, but it’s easier on the body. Patients have said it feels calm and soothing.”

Family amenities Garwood has made a lot of changes here, inside and out. An all-weather deck stayed, but a children’s play area became a paved alley with parking. There’s still a children’s basketball hoop in back, which kids use now.

Inspiring changes Now, Garwood is part of the heart of downtown North Bend, “which is different,” she said. The remodel could be part of an ongoing facelift for downtown North Bend. “We had a lot of people walk in and say they’d seen it change,” Garwood said. “I’ve had people say, too, that they hope this inspires other buildings that need to be updated. It’s such a nice building here, maybe it’ll spread.” • Garwood Dental’s new office is located at 142 Main Ave. N., North Bend, just behind Chaplin’s North Bend Chevrolet.

Snoqualmie resident and Eastside Catholic School student Rose Young earned an Honorable Mention at the 2014 Regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Young won an award for her mixed media work, “Victim.” Teens in grades seven through 12, from public, private or home schools, can apply in 28 categories of art and writing for their chance to earn scholarships and have their works exhibited or published. “It is very exciting to see so many Eastside Catholic students honored for their work,” said Principal Polly Skinner. “This really shows the talent, hard work and commitment of our students. We are very proud of each of them.” Eight EC students earned 13 awards and four students received Gold Key Awards which allows their work to be judged at the National Level in New York later this spring. The West Art Region-at-Large consists of students from Washington, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Wyoming.

Rotary donation helps new food bank

Seth Truscott/Staff Photo

Volunteer Art Hobbs of Fall City hauls in a load of donated food into the Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank on Feb. 21.

Rotarians, their off-fromschool children, and volunteers with the Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank formed a human chain to hustle inside 2,000 pounds of food on Friday, Jan. 21. The Snoqualmie Valley Rotary Club used $5,000 from the 2013 Rotary Golf Tournament to purchase a truckload of goods from Costco, which is being used to fill the recently opened food bank’s coffers. The 2014 Rotary Golf Tournament is Monday, June 30, at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge. “It’s shaping up to be a much larger event,” said Rotarian Brad Toft. “There’s a lot of support for it.” The new, non-denominational Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank opened Wednesday, Feb. 5, next to North Bend Community Church at 122 E. 3rd St., North Bend. It was started by staff who split off from Mount Si Food Bank.
