  • Written by Shannon Michael

When Bill and Peggy Van Natter decided they wanted their property, the historic North Creek School House, to be preserved for the community’s use, they reached out to the City of Bothell. That was in the early 1990s. 

It’s taken over twenty years and a lot of restoration work for their vision to become reality.
To showcase the school restoration’s progress, the city of Bothell will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony and allow visitors to come inside the building during the city’s Arbor Day volunteer planting event at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 5 at Centennial Park, home of the relocated school.

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

TunaCourtesy Photo. Woodinville Rep’s production of “Tuna Does Vegas” opens March 7.Depending on your point of view, Tuna, Texas, is heaven on earth or the weirdest place imaginable. Local audiences can decide for themselves in March with the Woodinville Repertory Theatre’s production of “Tuna Does Vegas.”

The show is the latest in a series of hilarious shows that lampoon — in a loving sort of way — the foibles of Tuna, the legendary but entirely fictitious third-smallest town in Texas, where the Lions Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies.

Tuna offers up its charms in performances scheduled for Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. March 7 and 8, March 14 and 15, March 21 and 22 and March 28 and 29. Matinees will be at 2 p.m. on March 9, March 16 and March 23.
