Decision nears for Mount Si freshman campus Committee calls for fresh approaches at Middle school annex

“The DOT turned this into a pinball machine,” Perrigoue said. When cars lose traction or swerve, she is concerned that they will glance off rails rather than crumple them. Fewer shoulders mean that police and firefighters may be challenged to pull over or pass drivers, she added. Perrigoue said Highway 203 north of the Snohomish county line is wider and safer, and wants the local stretch to catch up. “It’s never been brought to the same standard,” she said. Perrigoue, who was also part of a Carnation branding committee, said that narrow highways also deter cyclists from visiting the Lower Valley. The Cascade Bicycle Club Education Foundation’s newest regional bicycle network report gives Highway 203 a ‘fail’ rating.

Mount Si High School freshmen could attend a different kind of institution at a Snoqualmie Middle School annex starting in 2013, under the latest recommendation by a Snoqualmie Valley School District committee. Months of discussion by parents and school officials culminated Sept. 9, when the High School Educational Program Study Committee presented its views on bestpractice ways to make the middle school part of a high school campus. Annexation would fix overcrowding at Mount Si and create new outlets and opportunities for ninth grade students, committee members told the Snoqualmie Valley School District Board of Directors. Under the committee’s proposal, the new annex would act as a pilot site for new educational approaches, such as blended classes, integration of honors with regular classes, and emphases on leadership or a Science-TechnologyEngineering-Mathematics (STEM) model.

Measuring the shoulder strip along Highway 203, Voters for a Safer 203 founder Jackie Perrigoue believes new guardrails didn’t solve road safety concerns, and wants more shoulders. “This project was $6.6 million,” she said. “This two-bit yardstick: priceless.”

Vol. 97, No. 17

Cars race by as Jackie Perrigoue wielded a yardstick by the narrow side of Highway 203, aiming to prove a point. In a traffic lull, the lifelong Carnation resident and retiree darted across the highway and checked the width of pavement between the fogline and recently installed guardrail near the 77th Street intersection. “It was less than a yard,” she said. “There is no room for error.” Taking aim at narrow roads and rails installed by the state this spring in Carnation’s vicinity, Perriguoe has founded a group called Voters for a Safer 203. She has called a town hall meeting for 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 30,

having your heart rate rise and hitting someone.”

David Hiller, Advocacy Director, Cascade Bicycle Club at Tolt Middle School, inviting state and local officials and demanding new road standards with more space for bike lanes and shoulders. “The shoulders we have are pretty much non-existant,” Perrigoue said. While she welcomed new guardrails in some areas, Perrigoue pointed to several stretches, including north of town near 77th Street and south near Pleasant Hill, where she said narrow lanes could be more dangerous during icy conditions or accidents.

Form to follow function at new Snoqualmie YMCA No locker rooms planned for initial phase BY SETH TRUSCOTT Editor

Armed with butcher paper and a big ink marker, future YMCA Director Dave Mayer jotted notes as a handful of residents told him how the new Snoqualmie Community Center could help local families grow. Form follows function, and the ideas that took shape on Mayer’s pad—everything from adult life skills courses to children’s camps—will define the structure of the new Snoqualmie YMCA. “Be creative,” he told residents. “Think about all the different programs we might offer, both inside the walls and also outside our YMCA, in the surrounding community.”

Mayer was among the movers and shakers behind the $4 million community center who shared plans at an August 24 public meeting. A second round of public input on YMCA priorities and design is 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 28, at Snoqualmie City Hall. Current plans call for an 11,885-square-foot center at Snoqualmie Ridge Community Park. The YMCA would include a 3,700-squarefoot gym, a 2,100-square-foot cardio room, two multipurpose rooms, a teen room and private family changing and shower rooms. Locker rooms are not planned for the initial phase. “For a facility of this size in this neighborhood, the idea of a family changing room made more sense,” architect Mike Galbraith said. “We don’t have a pool. Mothers and fathers

Groundbreaking is planned for spring of 2011. like to have a private room.” Galbraith said most users are expected to live nearby, and that the family changing rooms would also work better for the building’s double role as an emergency shelter. The project adds 51 new parking stalls to the Community Park lot. Galbraith included room for an outside rock climbing wall and options for expansion. State grants may add room to the center. For now, chang-

ing the plan essentially means trading square footage from room to room. The center’s size means no room may end up serving a single purpose. “How we put our ideas together is going to be critical,” said Marcia Isenberger, Eastside Regional Executive for the YMCA of Greater Seattle. “Now, as we start to dial into programs, the slate is wide open.” Reacting to Galbraith’s

Athlete speaker touts parent involvement



With most Valley students involved in some form of team sports, many community parents want to support their athletic growth.

It’s really changed my outlook for the better and I 100-percent advise parents to go.”


Drug takebacks

David Hiller, advocacy director for the club, said the highway near Carnation did not pass muster because of fast speeds combined with a lack of shoulders. While Carnation is connected to the Snoqualmie Valley Trail, Hiller said trails aren’t an adequate replacement for wider roads and dedicated bike lanes. Cyclists will not ride where they don’t feel safe, he added. “Anytime you’ve got a line that says ‘this area is free of highspeed traffic,’ it proves an extra degree of comfort,” Hiller said. “That extra space can be the difference between having your heart rate rise and hitting someone.” Shoulders aren’t just a bike issue, he added—they also offer safety benefits to motorists and pedestrians. “On rural highways, a shoulder is just about the only place to walk to your mailbox or your neighbor’s house,” Hiller said.

Police securing prescriptions for National Takeback Day BY ALLISON ESPIRITU Staff Reporter

North Bend and Snoqualmie police are giving residents a new way to empty medicine cabinets and keep potentially dangerous prescription drugs off the streets. During National Drug Takeback Day, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 25, North Bend police will accept unwanted drugs at a drop site at the parking lot next to Rock-O’s Diner, 247 East North Bend Way. Snoqualmie police will place a drive-through booth at Snoqualmie Fire Department on Snoqualmie Parkway. The one-day effort brings a national focus on prescription drug abuse, allowing citizens to safely dispose of drugs without contaminat-

Different view Jenny Bullard, transportation director for the Riverview School District, said while some guardrail fixes might need to be made, most staff have told her that the state Department of Transportation’s project made roads safer. “I was getting more positive feedback than negative,” she said. Bullard planned to be at the middle school meeting to learn more about local highway statistics. Hiller said the Cascade Bicycle Club will alert its members to attend and comment. Perrigoue has invited officials including 45th District State Representative Roger Goodman and Larry Springer and State Sen. Eric Oenig to the meeting. She called the gathering this month to send a message during campaign season. “We want to strike while the iron is hot,” she said.”

ing their communities. North Bend and Snoqualmie police already keep collection boxes at their stations. “We saw it as an opportunity to get the word out that we have a drop-off box,” said North Bend Police Chief Mark Toner. Police created a prescription drop-off box service this summer in response to community concerns about safe options to dispose of unused medicines. Prescription drugs have the potential for abuse and also pose a threat to the environment, if disposed of improperly. “If people have stuff before or after the 25th, they don’t have to drop it off in those four hours,” Toner said. “If they call us, we can get someone to pick it up, or they can bring it to the office during normal business hours.” • For a list of drop-off points, visit www.medicenereturn.

La Niña’s back: Prepare now for floods I

f you blinked, you probably missed the summer. A cool and rainy ‘dry’ season made for fewer Snoqualmie Valley tourists, slimmer local pocketbooks— even a potential pumpkin shortage shaping up for fall. The weather fun may be just starting. Last week, forecasters with the National Weather Service announced that La Niña is back. The last time the region went through this cool, SETH TRUSCOTT wet weather pat- Valley Record Editor tern was in the winter of 2008 and 2009. Lowland residents will recall that season as the one with a double dose of flooding. A November 2008 flood soaked the Valley, and the one that came the following January demolished local farms and cost millions in damages. Local geography and hydrography are little changed in 2010—Puget Sound Energy’s lowering of the Falls dam is in progress—so if the Valley gets the same kind of bad weather this fall that we saw two years ago, I fear for the region’s economy and for the safety and well-being of folks in harm’s way.


Now, before the serious rains arrive, is the time to plan and prepare. The following are basic flood preparations that anyone can make: • Designate two meeting places: just outside your home and outside your neighborhood. Know the addresses and phone numbers for both places. • Find a friend or family member at least 100 miles away to be your family’s contact person. • Make sure every member of your family knoww your phone number and has a cell phone, coins or a prepaid phone card to call an emergency contact. • Keep your car filled up with gas, and put an emergency kit with tools, windshield scraper and extra food, water and warm clothing inside. • Buy flood insurance. Review your policy for endorsements for

back-up of sewers and drains. Remember that it can take about a month for purchased insurance to come into effect. • Move heirlooms and irreplaceable items to upper floors, safe from flooding. • Conduct a home hazard hunt to minimize damage to your home. • Know your child’s school or daycare disaster plan and update your children’s emergency contact information. • Teach family members to text message. Texts can often get around network disruptions in the event of a disaster, when a phone call might not go through. • Sign up for flood alerts. Quick alerts can be found on floodzilla. com or via King County at green. Radio news stations can also supply

detailed disaster information. • Know how to get sandbags. Locally, sandbags are made available through public works agencies. Call North Bend Public Works at (425) 888-0486 and Snoqualmie Public Works at (425) 831-4919. Carnation’s department can be reached at (425) 333-4484. In King County, the flood warning center will notify residents of sandbag sites. Call the center at (206) 2968200, and dial option 3 for sandbag information. Last season, we lucked out. Maybe the flooding won’t come this winter. But if forecasters say it’s going to get wet, we ignore them at our peril. The more organized and prepared the Valley is, the better chance we have to ride out the storm. • E-mail Editor Seth Truscott at

Letters to the Editor

There are no words to express our pain; nor words to express our gratitude. The love, support and prayers we have received from the community have been both humbling and inspiring. We have been especially moved by the students of the Valley—and beyond. All who camped out with us at the hospital were respectful and compassionate. We read Cody all of the cards, prayers, and Facebook posts; and showed him your beautiful pictures, posters, candles, T-shirts, songs, tattoos, and everything else. Cody felt your love—and so did we. We desperately wish we had answers, or even insight, as to what happened. The prior week we were all in Georgia, spending family day with our oldest son Trey, who graduated from Army Basic Training at Fort Benning. Cody was happy as could be. In vivid detail, he painted for all of us the picture of his future. It consisted of working out with his brothers and uncles this winter, wrestling at 130 this year, starting Running Start in January, getting an ROTC scholarship to Central after graduation, and then joining the Army and becoming an Airborne Ranger. After

all that, he wanted to be a firefighter. While sitting at a Red Robin in Georgia, Cody drew on a napkin the tattoo he wanted to get when he turned 18 (or sooner if we would let him). His design was a cross comprised of stars representing each person in our family. Under the cross, Cody wrote 1 Corinthians 13:13, “Meanwhile these three remain: faith, hope, and love; and the greatest of these is love.” He even showed us the blue shirt he was going to wear to school on Monday. In Cody’s last text messages on Saturday morning, he told a friend he was a “happy boy.” All of this leaves us desperately wondering what happened. Unfortunately, we may never know for sure. But as a family of faith, what matters now is that Cody is in heaven, most likely playing catch and eating ice cream with Grandpa Botten and playing cards with Grandma Stokes. Being the tender-hearted and generous person he was, Cody had decided on his own that he wanted to be an organ donor. At this moment, it is bittersweet to realize that there are people living, who otherwise would not be, thanks to Cody’s gifts of life. We have been asked by

She set up booths at local supermarkets and has raised about $400 toward her goal of $750. “I really like animals,” Ally said. “I saw the pictures of the birds and was really upset. I wanted to help them out.” Patrons have been generous. Most passersby contributed to Ally’s cause, and any donation above a dollar goes to proceeds. Her first patron handed her a $20 bill. Ally said she’d like to learn more about fundraising. “I’m extremely proud of her,” said mom Adra Tiryakioglu. The International Bird Rescue Research Center works to mitigate human impact on aquatic birds and other wildlife. The group is active in spill response in Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida. In late August, the IBRRC released 150 clean birds into the wild. • To learn more about the fundraiser, or to donate, call

XC team holds own on course despite weather BY RHETT WORKMAN Contributing Writer

Mount Si’s cross country teams braved the elements last Wednesday, Sept. 15, holding their own in the first of two home meets this season. The Wildcat boys finished third and the girls second in a tri-meet which included Bellevue and Juanita. Mount Si’s boys scored 69 points, behind the Wolverines’ 15 and Rebels’ 52, while the Wildcat girls’ score of 38 to Bellevue’s 21 and Juanita’s 66. In cross country, the lowest team score wins the meet. For the Mount Si girls, it was a solid showing by three competitors, including two freshmen, who finished in the top ten. Leading that group was junior Kendall Maddux, who clocked a time of 22:17 to take fourth overall. “I actually perform better when it rains,” she said. “It went really good.” It was raining through much of the girls’ race, while the boys were able to race under cloudy skies with no rain. Top boys finisher Richard Carmichael said the weather is a factor in races. “Absolutely, but it is for everyone in the race, not just me. You’ve got to bear down and just deal with the conditions,” the junior said. Carmichael clocked a time of 18:33, good for 11th overall. He was pleased with his efforts. “It’s not the fastest course in the world, but it was a good day,” Carmichael said. The course consisted of the campus of Snoqualmie Elementary School and trails east of the school near Mount Si Golf Course. Several freshmen got their first taste of their home course, and they did very well. Leading that group was Abbey Bottemiller, who finished just behind Maddux in fifth overall among the girls competitors with a time of 22:27. “It’s definitely more challenging than the two mile,” she said. Fellow freshman Bailey Scott finished sixth overall in the girls event with a time of 22:28, one second behind her freshman teammate. Scott said the leadership older runners such as

Freshmen Abbey Bottemiller and Bailey Scott cross the finish line in their first home 5-k competition Sept. 15. The Mount Si newcomers took fifth and sixth respectively. Maddux and sophomore Christina Volken provide is key. “We really look up to them because they always try really hard,” Scott said. “They always do their best and they always really motivate us.” Mount Si this week has meets Wednesday at Interlake, and Saturday at Lake Sammamish State Park. They return home for their second and final home meet of the season October 6.

Cedarcrest cruisers dominate first meet

After a brief, slow start, the Wildcats proceeded to go on a 11-1 run to take control of the opening frame. A Gogan kill sealed the first set in Mount Si’s favor. Lake Washington battled in the second set, and kept things interesting for a while, but service aces by junior Sarah McDonald and senior Baylee Sinner and kills from Gogan and CWU-bound senior newcomer Catie Fry were key in helping the Wildcats take control of the middle frame.

A soggy day was a good day for the Cedarcrest High School cross country teams, who both took top scores in their first regular conference meet of the season. The Red Wolves raced last Thursday, Sept. 16, against Archbishop Murphy and South Whidbey at Murphy’s home course at McCollum Park. In the girls’ race, Cedarcrest had three of the top 4 and 5 of the top 10. Cara Strodel ran comfortably from the front for the victory, followed by Jessica Beam in third and Tia Smith in fourth. Head coach Bruce McDowell said he was especially encouraged by the performance by younger team members, as five freshmen and a sophomore finished as runners in fourth through ninth place. “Get them some experience, and we’ll see what we’ve got,” he told the Valley Record by e-mail. In the boys’ race, Cedarcrest had six boys in the top 9, led by Mitchell Montgomery at third) and Chad Linnerooth at fourth place. Dominic Dams, Logan Orndorf and Gibson Lisk stepped up in the top five team runners. “Not only do we have some people up from the front, but we also are a deep team,” McDowell said. “We put 20 boys in the top 37. That is pretty good sign.” Athletes of the meet were Dominic Dams, Logan Orndorf and Olivia Waterman.

If successful, such approaches could be tried at Mount Si. “You can’t just copy a program from another area,” said Liz Piekarczyk, a citizen representative on the group. “It was important that we identify our needs and what parts of each program would fit our needs.” The group also recommended building social connections between freshmen and older students, and called for some movement of students between the annex and the main building. Lisa Truemper, Mount Si teacher and committee member, said the needs and expectations for programs at a new middle school annex are the same for the high school. “We talked about developing something that would raise the bar across 9-through-12,” she said. “It would implement those needs at a (new) facility as well as Mount Si.” “I concur with the recommendation,” Superintendent Joel Aune said. “It will take us in the positive direction in terms of where we want to go in the future.” The committee’s work in finding solutions, he added, is “a vehicle to accelerate” work in improving local graduation rates and reducing drop-outs. More planning is to come. The study committee will present specifics for a replacement middle school at the board’s next meeting, Thursday, Sept. 23, at the district office. The two-year satellite campus project would require a bond to build a new middle school on the district’s 40-acre parcel on Snoqualmie Ridge, where Carmichael Street intersects with Elderberry Avenue and McCullough Street.

McDonald set up the finish with an ace, then Gogan wrapped it up with a kill to give Mount Si control of the match. The third and final set was similar in its start to the second set, as the Kangs tried to keep things interesting, with solid play from several players. As the set progressed, though, the Wildcats were able to steadily take command, and they pulled away late behind a couple of kills from senior Amanda Gates. A Gates block slammed the door shut on the match and Mount Si had moved to 3-0 in conference after beating Liberty and Sammamish prior to last Wednesday’s match. The Wildcats swept Liberty on Thursday, Sept. 9, behind six kills and nine digs from senior Aubrey Larion, and

did the same to the Totems last Monday, Sept. 13, behind nine assists and two aces from sophomore Lauren Smith. Embedded in all of that Kingco success was a strong showing against top teams mostly from eastern Washington at a tournament held Saturday, Sept. 11, in Yakima. Mount Si, seen as a possible tournament favorite, did very well despite being eliminated in the semifinals to eventual champ West Valley of Yakima “We were awesome,” Foote said. Something that excites her is something that should excite Wildcat fans about what may lie ahead. “We’re producing numbers right now that we produced at the end of the season last year,” the coach said. That could mean good things ahead for a Mount Si team that is currently ranked very high in 3A in the Seattle Times poll.

“We’re hoping for a good season,” Gogan said. “We want to go all the way.”

John A. Currie


A family graveside service for John A. Currie, 85, of North Bend, will be held at the Mount Si Memorial Cemetery in North Bend. John died at the Red Oak Residence, his adopted home, on Sunday, Sept. 5. John was born on June 27, 1925, in Snoqualmie to Angus and Marie Currie. He graduated from North Bend High School and served with the United States Army during World War II. John was employed as a steel worker for Jorgensen Steel and retired in 1985, returning to North Bend to care for his mother and the family property. In his leisure time, John enjoyed working around his home, tending to the many projects needed to maintain the family property. He and his brother Don grew up in the shadow of Mount Si and spent many hours hiking, exploring and simply enjoying the wonderful environment. In his early teens, he accompanied his grandfather, Angus, traveling by horseback across Snoqualmie Pass to herd sheep from the Ellensburg area back across the pass and into the Snoqualmie Valley. Like many of his era, he was a tough individual. John is preceded in death by his father Angus (1969), mother Marie (1992) and brother Don (2001), and is survived by his three nephews; Dick Currie, of Bellevue, Tom Currie, of Kennewick, and Bill Currie, of West Port; along with two grandnephews, Bob Currie and Evan Currie.

Irene Babcock Scott Irene Babcock Scott was born on a farm in Charlotte, Michigan on June 12, 1910 to Lydia (Clark) and Archie Babcock. After moving to Washougal, Washington she learned to ride a horse at a very young age and helped with the milking at age 12. She rode horseback to school, and delivered milk to the creamery with a horse and wagon. After graduating from Washougal High School she attended Central Washington University (then known as a Normal School) where she played violin in the orchestra and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in music. She also met her future husband Charles E. Scott while at Central. In 1933 they married and both became teachers. After teaching two years in Washougal, both she and her husband accepted positions in a three-room school in Bickleton, Washington where they remained for six years. While there, Mr. Scott led the Boy Scouts and Mrs. Scott taught piano lessons. She stayed in close contact with a number of her students throughout her life, outliving most of them. One of their favorite pastimes in Bickleton was horseback riding. After moving to North Bend in 1941, the Scotts had the first of three children, then moved to the small farm where they lived out their lives. Irene spent fifty-two years as church organist for Our Lady of Sorrows. She served on St. Martha’s Guild for over forty years and also served on the Altar Society. In addition to teaching in the Snoqualmie Valley Schools, Mrs. Scott belonged to the music club and the garden club. She was especially interested in organic gardening. After her husband’s death in 1974, Mrs. Scott made two journeys to Europe and Africa where she visited in nineteen countries. After retiring from her thirty-year teaching career, Mrs. Scott devoted much time to helping a four-generation family of Hmong emigrants sponsored by Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church. She tutored adults in basic learning skills and served on the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital Auxiliary Board. Mrs. Scott had two brothers, Ralph and Bruce Babcock, deceased. Mrs. Scott is survived by her three children: Charles E. Scott Jr. and his wife Maria Angelica Gelos of North Bend; James Michael Scott and his wife, Barbara Carlsen of Belfair; and Mary Jaffe and her husband Robert Jaffe of Port Orchard. She has nine grandchildren: Maria Hernandez (Edward), Patrick Scott (Emma), and Laura Scott; Lisa Matala (Chris), Clarence J. Scott (Jennifer), Charles Scott (Marsha), and Dr. Josef Scott; George A. Carter Jr., Christopher E. Carter (Regina); and nineteen great grandchildren. She is also survived by nieces Diana Talbot of Seattle and Nita Gale Browne of Spokane and numerous extended family members and friends. A Funeral Mass will be said at 11:00 am at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church in Snoqualmie, on Saturday 25 September.
