Body Recovered from Pebble Creek Hole

       Press Release
       from Fawn Bauer
      August 20, 2017

     Saturday, August 19, 2017 - Mount Rainier National Park successfully recovered the body of a 30 year-old Washington man who, on July 3, had fallen into a hole above Pebble Creek while descending on skis from Camp
    Since the initial report, the park has conducted over 22 ground and air searches of the area. Late-season snow cover, combined with unstable conditions prevented locating the skier until the snow over Pebble Creek melted out. In early August the body of the missing skier was located at the bottom of a waterfall approximately 30 meters from the location where he had fallen into Pebble Creek. Since then, the park has been monitoring the site, including snow and water conditions, awaiting an opportunity to safely access the area.
    On Saturday, August 19, a team of eight search and rescue personnel safely reached the body for extraction by a long line helicopter operation. The individual was then transferred to the Pierce County Examiner, who will confirm positive identification.
    Over 40 personnel assisted in the search and recovery, including Mountain Rescue Association and Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue's Swift Water Team. The park's exclusive use helicopter was used.

     Nisqually to Paradise Road Project In the early 1900s, the Nisqually to Paradise Road was built to offer the best views possible as visitors approached the mountain. Each year thousands of vehicles, cycles of freeze and thaw, and falling trees take their toll on the road. Improvements to the road are necessary to preserve its integrity as a popular and historic scenic drive.

Eatonville Night Out on Antonie Avenue...


     Story and Photo by Bob Walter

     Eatonville’s neighborhoods partied down Tuesday evening August 1st for National Night Out! There were seven block parties, some taking place right in the street with barricades supplied by EPD.

    This is a chance not only to get to know your neighbors and have a party, but also to build a stronger relationship between residents and their public safety officials, in an effort to deter local crime. Eatonville’s finest did it one better, bringing the whole department out, along with the mayor, the town administrator, and the district’s fire chief.

    They talked about their vehicles and equipment, the crime prevention emphasis of each individual officer, and what to do if you spot potential trouble in your neighborhood. Then they asked the block partiers what issues they were concerned about.

    Also accompanying the officials on their visits was Emmy Lay, 2017 coordinator of Eatonville’s 9-11 Day of Service. This year’s volunteer-driven community event, held in honor of the first responders to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, will be held the morning of Saturday, September 9, at 9:00 am, beginning with a flag-raising ceremony at the high school.

   Here, on their seventh and last stop on the south end of Antonie Avenue, Chief Brian Witt chats with residents.
