Truck rams trailer
The driver of a pickup truck northbound on Woodinville-Redmond Road the afternoon of Oct. 14 lost control and rammed a construction trailer. The truck crossed the white line near McCorry's and struck a guy wire, knocking out power to parts of Woodinville, then careened into the construction trailer, shoving it 10 feet backwards. A man inside the trailer suffered minor injuries and was transported to Evergreen Hospital. The driver of the truck sustained slight injuries.
King County Council Committee visits agricultural land in valley
King County Councilmembers Louise Miller (right) and Greg Nickels visited the Zante Farm last Wednesday to discuss the agriculture production district. The "land swap" proposed by youth soccer has yet to be resolved, but the largest parcel, the Zante Farm, is likely to be a community pea patch and model farm. Also pictured are Geoff Clayton (far left) and Dave Owens from Carnation Farms.

Woodinville Health & Safety Fair a success
Hundreds of families visited the Woodinville Health & Safety Fair last Saturday in the Woodinville Towne Center. "The turn out was excellent. I really appreciate the community involvement from the Woodinville Round Table, Woodinville Fire and Life Safety District, Woodinville businesses and health professionals," said Bob Milton, President of the Woodinville Towne Merchants' Association and organizer of the event. "This will be a yearly event. The Towne Center will offer Kid ID photo updates every six months."
Groups that sign up for King County's Adopt-A-Road program agree to maintain a two-mile stretch of road for a two-year period. They must remove litter from the roadway at least twice a year, but many groups do it more frequently than that. The program boasts a wide variety of participants, including families, businesses, churches, service organizations, and individuals. For more information, call Jan Klippert at 296-6510 or Jennifer Armas at 296-3807.
