Photography isn't the easiest (or cheapest) hobby to get into, but Buckley resident Jeni Dieringer is already becoming a regular shutterbug. The local bodybuilder started taking up photography when her mother bought her a camera for her last birthday.

Bonney Lake Public Works director retires

After serving Bonney Lake for more than a decade and being involved in public works for more than 40 years, Bonney Lake's Public Works Director Daniel Grigsby is bowing out and welcoming retirement. "As I wrap things up and think about what's happened over the past 12 years, the city has accomplished a lot from a Public Works perspective," Grigsby said. "That's always something to feel good about, when you leave a job knowing you've left it in better condition than you received it in."

Black Diamond council, mayor call cease-fire, but large issues still loom

The meeting was long and debate was heated, but the June 16 Black Diamond City Council resembled a working city government for the first time since the beginning of the year. Council members and the mayor appeared to have set aside many of the arguments they've had over the past six months in order to pass nearly all of the unfinished business items that has been on the last several meeting agendas to the applause of residents.

We all build walls around ourselves. Sometimes we build these walls because it can be healthy to compartmentalize different parts of our lives. But these walls can just as often hold us back or even harm us, or the people around us. We can become so concentrated on what is inside our walls that we are blind to what happens outside of them.
