That Christmas is coming to Black Diamond was very much evidenced by a visit, last week, to the city’s branch of the First National Bank of Enumclaw. Windows were painted, wreaths adorned the walls, and the bank staff was busily trimming the Christmas tree with decorations made by each of the classes at Black Diamond Elementary School. There were even a few “ho, ho, ho’s.”

The festivities were perfectly in keeping with the spirit of warmth and friendliness exhibited year round in the bank. The captain of this happy crew is Dave Miller, bank manager since May of this year. (more…)

Diggin’ around Black Diamond last week produced a potpourri of news items.

The Chick Thompsons donated a 35-foot noble fir, which has stood in their front yard for at least 15 years, to Valley General Hospital for Christmas. When it goes up in the main lobby of the hospital it will stand 20 feet tall.

The noble tree was removed by Clark Williams, Jerry Olander, and Bob Hall, who work in the hospital maintenance department under Director Virgil Virden. It will be sprayed with a flame-retardant material and then be decorated by the Renton Lady Lions. (more…)

Black Diamond experience. Staff photographer Eric Bass captures the mood of creation in an area workshop. All that are needed is a pair of sensitive hands, the right tools, and the urge to create. It isn’t recommended, however, that a creator in clay work on a bench covered with wood chips.

The emerging art colony in Black Diamond has been simmering for some time.

About five years ago it began to bubble with the arrival of Ben Bieri, a potter from Kirkland. He came to the Puget Sound area from Kansas in 1953 and soon became known for his fine pottery. He has been a guest artist at the Annual Renton Art Show and has been accepted at Edmonds and Bellevue’s Pacific Northwest Arts & Crafts festivals.
