   Railroad history video to be shown
   Valley residents no longer hear the sound of train whistles, but in an earlier time they would have heard them throughout the day and night. People today interested in "Life Along the Tracks: The Milwaukee Railroad in the Snoqualmie Valley" will want to come to Duvall's Holy Innocents Church at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 18, to see this new video. Valley historian Allen Miller, who appears in the video and provided advice on its production, will share his thoughts. The free event, to which everyone is invited, is sponsored by the Duvall Historical Society.
   Pumps & Grinds
   Born and raised in the countryside of the Northwest, Brooke Pennock's earlier venues were primarily bonfires and picnics, but over the last seven years she's been playing in local coffee shops, bakeries, bookstores and ale houses. Her unique blend of soul and folk, performed with soft yet striking vocals and simple acoustic guitar is the perfect accompaniment to a cup of java, a lovely pastry, or a dinner special. Pennock will be performing at Pumps and Grinds starting at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 16. Open Mike Night is Saturday. Sign-in begins at 7:15. Pumps & Grinds Coffeehouse is located at 15614 Main St. NE, Duvall (next to Bank of America). Call 844-2766 for information.
   Medicinal herb class
   A medicinal herb class taught by Arthur Lee is scheduled to start in February at Alexandra's River Inn Snoqualmie Valley near Carnation. The class is open to everyone interested in the wild plants growing around them and their useful potentials. Lee has researched the medicinal works of traditional doctors and has written an easy-to-use herbal book (included in class fee). The intensive six-week beginning class, on Mondays and Tuesdays, begins Feb. 19 and 20, 6-8:30 p.m. Cost is $144. An advanced 10-week class on Wednesday and Thursday evenings begins Feb. 21 and 22. Cost is $240. Students will be asked to volunteer a few hours of work at the Inn's sanctuary. Contact Arthur Lee directly at (360) 261-5722 or call the inn at (425) 333-6000.
