ARLINGTON — Olympic Avenue was packed with spectators on Saturday, Dec. 1, as the city of Arlington hosted its annual Hometown Holidays parade and celebration downtown. Hometown Holidays boasted holiday music, Victorian singers belting out Christmas carols, an old-fashioned bake sale and, of course, a parade featuring Santa Claus himself. “I love the whole day,” said Arlington Mayor Barbara Tolbert. “I love the happy smiles on the merchants’ faces and all the kids who are out here today. It’s great.” The event also included the Carbajal family blood drive in the City Council Chambers, as well as the second annual Handmade Holiday craft market, hosted by the Arlington Farmers Market,

which featured handmade arts, crafts, gifts and decorations from local merchants. The most popular event of the day was the holiday parade, which boasted hundreds of parade participants including five drill teams, three choral groups, two nativity scenes and even a walking Christmas tree. Local Girl Scouts of America troops performed a holiday dance routine, as did the Arlington School of Dance members. Local Boy Scouts of America troops made their way through the procession, led by one scout driving a holiday-themed Power Wheels vehicle. Members of the Bark N’ Time 4H Dog Club made an appearance along with several of their four-legged friends, including a popular family of Great Danes SEE HOLIDAYS, PAGE 2

Council approves 2013 city budget BY KIRK BOXLEITNER


Vol. 123, No. 52 Kirk Boxleitner/Staff Photo

Arlington City Council member Dick Butner notes how quickly the Council proceeded in passing the city budget this year.

ARLINGTON — The Arlington City Council voted unanimously on Dec. 3 to adopt the ordinance setting the city’s 2013 budget, marking the conclusion of a process that Arlington Mayor Barbara Tolbert and several Council members alike deemed at once challenging but efficient. “I think this is the earliest we’ve ever resolved this issue,” Council member Dick Butner said at the Dec. 3 meeting. “It was swift but tough,” Arlington Mayor Pro Tem Marilyn Oertle said. “We lost a lot of good people this year, which was extremely painful.” Tolbert credited city of Arlington Finance Director Jim Chase with facilitating the process by providing monthly finance updates,

and credited the hard work and collaborative efforts of city staff with developing a budget that holds the line to a 1 percent decrease in revenue while still setting significant funds aside for improvements to the Arlington Municipal Airport. “This was a smooth process overall,” Tolbert said. “It was an interesting process,” Chase said. “We learned a lot and made a lot of changes along the way, and what we got was a budget with $49,079,910 in expenditures.” Among those expenditures are: ■ $12,878,609 for the general fund. ■ $944,135 for street maintenance. ■ $2,573,584 for emergency medical services.

Six-year-old Finnegan Bowman grinned as he asked Santa Claus for a Super Friends toy, while his mother Sandra Andress looked on. “We came here because we have friends at the market, but it’s actually our second time,” said Andress. “We like how it’s a nice small-town celebration.” Following the parade, spectators were allowed to hop onto Santa Claus’ horse-


and a Rottweiler disguised as Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. The Old Bags of Arlington followed the fire truck leading the parade and handed out toys and candy to children on the sidewalks. A small angel rode through with the First Baptist Church and tossed handfuls of candy into the crowds.

Although some parade members gave away free sweets, Santa Claus was still the man of the hour, waving to children as he followed the crowd through the parade in a horse-drawn wagon. After the parade was finished, Santa hunkered down in a cozy chair by a decorated Christmas tree in the gazebo at Legion Park to hear the wishes of hundreds of local kids.

drawn wagon for a free ride through the streets, and the rides were still going well into the afternoon. “The free wagon rides are really popular,” said Sarah Lopez, Arlington’s recreation manager. “There are so many different community groups doing things during Hometown Holidays, it’s definitely a group effort. We have lots of help. Lifeway Church is helping, and the Kiwanis Club is here. It’s great.” A crowd gathered at the Legion Park gazebo at 4

p.m. for the city’s tree lighting ceremony. They began by singing several holiday tunes, such as Jingle Bells and Jingle Bell Rock, while the Kiwanis Club set up a fire pit for roasting marshmallows for s’mores. Santa Claus and Tolbert plugged in the tree lights together, and as the bulbs lit up the crowd cheered. The duo returned to the gazebo for an outrageous holiday sweater contest where the winners received prizes from Action Sports for donning the most festive outfits.

“This whole event is great on two levels,” said Tolbert. “It reminds us all of why we love this community and the small-town atmosphere and it’s great for small businesses. It’s great hometown event — you can shop, eat and take a sleigh ride with your kids.” Santa will return to Arlington on Saturday, Dec. 8, and Saturday, Dec. 15, for photo-ops at the co-op. Both Saturdays will also offer Victorian singers, holiday music and free wagon rides.

Disposition of marijuana cases uncertain BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — As of Dec. 6, the possession and use of one ounce or less of marijuana becomes legal in the state of Washington, but how this will be enforced and prosecuted depends upon whom you ask, and in what part of the state. Prosecutors for King, Pierce and Clark counties have all stated their intentions to drop their existing misdemeanor marijuana possession cases, but as of Nov. 30, prosecutors for Snohomish County were still exploring what the disposition might be on their own existing marijuana cases. “[Snohomish County Prosecutor] Mark Roe and our other attorneys have been talking to law enforcement and each other,” said Hal Hupp, deputy prosecuting attorney for Snohomish County, who didn’t expect the matter to be resolved by Dec. 6. “Part of the problem is that the legal definition of marijuana up to Dec. 6, 2012, is different from the legal definition of marijuana from Dec. 6, 2012, forward.” One luxury for the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office with these cases is that, as Hupp said, “Dec. 6 is the start date for the new marijuana laws, but it’s not the deadline for decisions on the old laws.” Both Hupp and Shari Ireton, director of communications for the Snohomish County Sheriff ’s Office, acknowledged the complexities of the law in the wake of Washington state

voters passing Initiative 502, although she cited the new laws themselves as establishing at least a few certainties. “If the law says that possession of an ounce or less is legal, we’re not going to arrest you for it,” Ireton said. “If you’re in possession of more than that amount, or you’re under 21 years of age, or you’re distributing it, we will. If we get a call about 30-year-olds smoking up in the park, we’ll respond, because displaying or consuming marijuana in public is still illegal.” Although the possession, use and sale of marijuana-related drug paraphernalia will no longer be a crime or civil infraction, Ireton acknowledged that until the state comes up with licensing guidelines there is no legal way for people to obtain marijuana itself in Washington, unless they’re medical marijuana recipients. At the same time, Ireton and Hupp both noted that drivers’ THC levels from marijuana will continue to be grounds for DUI arrests. Ireton conceded that “these are very confusing laws,” especially given the differing ways in which each county is choosing to respond to them, while Hupp pointed out that the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office is responding “as quickly as it can,” given that “this is a small part of what we do, which tends to focus more on violent and sexual assaults and murder. The costs involved in these changes are already significant.” “And no, members of the

Snohomish County Sheriff ’s Office can’t start smoking marijuana, because we’re still bound by federal laws,” Ireton said, in an attempt to clear up one misconception she’s already encountered. Marysville City Attorney Grant Weed explained that Marysville, like many cities in Washington, had not yet “sorted out all of the issues the 60-plus page I-502 presents,” but assured citizens that the city of Marysville intends to enforce the new law as written, including the DUI aspects of the new law. “The city will also be monitoring the many state regulations that will be adopted by the Liquor Control Board over the next year, and taking appropriate steps to seek compliance,” Weed said. “We will also be watching to see what the U.S. Attorney’s Office may do at the federal level.” Arlington City Attorney Steve Peiffle likewise described his own staff as “still looking at this issue,” albeit at a staff level rather than an attorney one at this point. “Not unlike the pattern of the past few years, we’re waiting for the federal response,” Peiffle said. “We know that the possession of certain quantities above the age of 21 will no longer be prosecuted and the sale of it is still illegal, but to a large extent, we have no real clue beyond that. We’re operating without guidance and hoping someone at a higher level will enlighten us.”

Police arrest two after $10,000 jewelry heist MARYSVILLE — Marysville Police officers arrested two male suspects soon after they had stolen approximately $10,000 in jewelry from the Marysville K-Mart. On Friday, Nov. 30, just after 3 p.m., Marysville Police responded to a reported theft at K-Mart located in the 9600 block of State Avenue. Store employees indicated an adult male suspect had come into the store and walked back to the jewelry area. He cut two cables that were securing a container with the jewelry and fled the store. The suspect met up with a second adult male who was waiting as a getaway driver in a Ford F150 pickup. The suspects fled northbound away from the store. A Marysville officer spotted the truck and attempted to make a traffic stop. After initially slowing down the truck then sped off and the officer pursued. After approximately two miles the officer terminated the pursuit due to the dangerous driving of the fleeing suspects. Officers were still driving in the area and spotted the suspect vehicle again, but the passenger was no longer in the truck. Officers again initiated a traffic

stop and this time the driver, a 51-year-old Everett man, was taken into custody. Officers continued to attempt to locate the second suspect in the surrounding neighborhoods. At some point a Marysville officer had stopped and talked to two Marysville citizens who were working in a shop and gave them a description of the suspect, specifically that he was wearing all black clothing and was missing one shoe. A short time later the suspect approached the citizens and asked them for a ride into Everett. They immediately recognized he was the suspect police were looking for. One of them told the suspect he would give him a ride but that he had to let his girlfriend know and walked out of eyesight of the suspect. He then called 911 and advised the suspect was in his shop. Marysville Police, with assistance from Snohomish County Sheriff ’s deputies, were able to take the second suspect, a 29-year-old Everett man, into custody. The jewelry was recovered in the suspect vehicle. There were no injuries or damage to property as a result of the pursuit.

The buck stops here

GRAEF FROM PAGE 4 Most will agree that the world seems to be going to hell on a handcart. Television and newspapers keep us up to date on the latest election fraud, mass-murder, rape, abduction, drug-bust and hanky-panky in high places. A status quo isn’t the world that parents want children to grow up with. As part of a generation that messed things up so badly, we ought to be gearing up to make things better. When good church-type people volunteer to set things right as Peace Corps volunteers or poll watchers or whatever, their projects seldom get hung up in the restrictive world of red-tape and petty regulations. How do you regulate stuff that isn’t generating a profit— other than good will? Threats of controlling volunteerism don’t work because there’s not much in the way of assets or wages to threaten. Churches have a lot of company in doing good works. Volunteers abound at the YMCA, in city government, Kiwanis, Scouts, Rotary, Soroptimists and Lions and so on. A check on the movers and shakers in every seat of volunteerism will show a surprising number to be church members of some kind. If you feel so inclined, try out a church. If it doesn’t fit, try another. When you walk in, stun them with the question, “What’s in it for me?” After they pick themselves up and if you’re in the right place they’ll say, “By God, that’s the most honest question we’ve ever heard around here.” And it’s the best and most honest start. Comments may be addressed to: robertgraef@

The public Arlington City Council meeting that was held on Nov. 19 was a resounding wake up call which signaled a message loud and clear. I was hopeful that the advent of a new Mayor and City Council members might bring about a new mindset and put an end to the tax and spend mentality of past administrations. My wife and I purchased our home in Arlington in 2009. Since then I have gone through more Tums and Mylanta than any man alive as a result of the lack of responsible leadership. I questioned the Council on the merits of the decision-making process which led to the leasing of a postage stamp piece of land from BSNF. This perpetual lease calls for annual increases of 3 percent. Even though this parcel is crucial to the pending road expansion project and federal grant money for its construction, it still begs a resounding question. Who in their right mind would agree to lease anything where there are perpetual increases with no end? Clearly the taxpayers will be footing this bill for a very long time. Last year during the city’s public budget meetings residents sent a resounding objection to the skyrock-

Guest Opinion Philip Lane eting water and sewage costs the city imposes on homeowners, however, these objections remained unheard. Let me not forget, of course, the 1 percent property tax increase the City Council unanimously voted for in 2012. During the City Council meeting on Nov. 19, Financial Director Jim Chase proposed another increase to general property tax levy for 2013, which would increase from $1.31 to $1.41 per $1,000 of assessed valuation. Mr. Chase further asserted the 1 percent increase in the general levy doesn’t even keep up with inflation. What Mr. Chase and the City Council fail to recognize is that working families’ salaries and income fail to keep pace with inflation and the shrinking value of the dollar forces working families to struggle now more than ever to keep pace with inflation. I keep hearing about population


growth in Arlington, however numbers can be deceiving. I would love to know if anyone ever considered these facts. How many of these residents are on public assistance? How many are senior citizens living on fixed incomes, or how many of these households have a major breadwinner who is now partially or completely disabled. It very easy to spout numbers without considering the impact on Arlington residents’ lives. Furthermore, raising the property tax now displays the moral compass equal to that of Bernie Madoff. I understand now the city plans on hiring an outside entity to lobby on the city’s behalf to the tune of $50,000. Again I respectfully ask, isn’t that why we elect candidates for public office? Are they not supposed to speak on the behalf of their constituents? Seems to me Arlington desperately needs responsible leadership and not more bureaucrats rubbing elbows, kissing babies or posing for photo ops with veterans. Find me a leader who says, “The buck stops here.” Philip Lane is a resident of Arlington.

‘Passport to Christmas’ returns to downtown Marysville BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — Even before “Merrysville for the Holidays” commenced that afternoon, downtown Marysville was literally singing with holiday cheer on Saturday, Dec. 1, as the stores, sidewalks and stages of Third Street were visited by a duo of strolling musicians and an a cappella quartet. “We’ve lost count of how many Christmas seasons we’ve come to Third Street,” said accordionist Bert Carlson, as he and saxophonist Herb Hamilton ducked into shops such as Finders Keepers Furnishings while wearing their Victorian period attire. “It just feels like an old-time Christmas, the way Christmas used to be.” “It’s the camaraderie of the community,” Hamilton agreed. “They’re one big family here.” On the Outer Court stage adjacent to the Carabinieri Bar espresso stand, the quartet of Ron Foss, Joneen Richards, and Darryl and Karen Handley performed popular seasonal standards while community members dropped off food items for Allen Creek Community Church’s Seeds of Grace, in order to get their families’ photos taken with Santa Claus. “This is a great stage, but you can’t let yourself get distracted,” Richards laughed, as Karen Handley pointed out that they had to remember to ignore the sounds of the trains and to bring their own lights when their per-

Saxophonist Herb Hamilton and accordionist Bert Carlson duck into Finders Keepers Furnishings to play Christmas songs during the ‘Passport to Christmas’ program by the Downtown Marysville Merchants’ Association on Dec. 1. formances go late. “We just hope we can make what might be a difficult holiday season for some folks a bit more enjoyable,” Foss said, while praising Carabinieri Bar owner Chrissie Clementson for being such a gracious host. For her part, Clementson was surprised that her collection bucket had already overflowed before Santa had even posed for many photos, but she wasn’t alone since Eric Schoonmaker, co-owner of Trusty Threads, had to empty out the plastic barrel that was serving as his collection bin for St. Joseph’s House, not once or twice or three times, but four times before the afternoon. “There’s been lots of inter-

est,” said Schoonmaker, who credited the “Passport to Christmas” program by the Downtown Marysville Merchants’ Association with getting people out on the street and into Third Street’s stores that day. “People saw the story in the newspaper, and they like our shops anyway. By having them get their ‘passports’ stamped by all the participating stores, it’s given them an added incentive and turns it into a game.” “It’s nice to have an atmosphere like this,” said Marja Oosterwyk, owner of Oosterwyk’s Dutch Bakery. Although she wasn’t able

to participate in this year’s “Passport to Christmas” program, she appreciated the number of filled-up parking spots on the street, which she credited to the program. Mary Kirkland, owner of the Hilton Pharmacy, agreed that the number of visitors to her store who stopped by to get their “passports” stamped was “a lot.” “Many of them had never been here before,” said Kirkland, who reported that scented candles proved to be one of her more popular shopping selections that day. “Especially the Indian Summer candles.”

Farmers Market hosts Handmade Holiday BY LAUREN SALCEDO

ARLINGTON — For the second year in a row the Arlington Farmer’s Market has hosted Handmade Holiday, a craft and local goods market at the Co-Op, on Saturday, Dec. 1, during the city of Arlington’s Hometown Holidays celebration. The Co-Op accessory building was packed with shoppers looking to snag hand-crafted goods, winter veggies and even pictures with Santa. “We are definitely on track to be better attended than last year,” said Samantha Schuller, event coordinator. “I’d say that’s because of our reputation for having really high-quality handmade items. We have fewer vendors than last year, but it’s all supreme quality. It’s just really good stuff.” The market offered locally grown plants and vegetables, baked goods, local honey, truffles, knitted hats, crocheted scarves, handmade Christmas ornaments, vintage-inspired jewelry, hand-

made soaps and more. Victory Ralston, a 15-year-old Arlington resident, started her own business two years ago and began selling her own creations online and at Bella Bungalow, an Arlington boutique. “I’ve always loved crafty things and I love vintage and I thought I’d combine the two into handmade vintage-inspired things,” she said. Ralston sold a variety of her items at Handmade Holiday, her second year there. “I like that it’s during the holiday time, because my items make really good gifts,” said Ralston, who also sells her wares at Christina Corvin of Marysville is another vendor who chose to sell her products at the market for the second year in a row. “I love the Arlington Farmers Market,” she said. “There’s a great sense of community and environmental responsibility.” Corvin has been crocheting for 17 years and selling

She sold hats, scarves and more at the market. The event spanned from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Santa Claus made an appearance for photos from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The city of Arlington was hosting its Hometown Holidays event at the same time which helped expose hundreds of visitors to the craft market. Handmade Holiday also offered a $5 per ticket raffle to win a live 5-foot

noble fir Christmas tree completely decked out with ornaments, decorations and gifts from the vendors, with proceeds going to support the Farmers Market. “There is so much great stuff on there, I almost want to win it myself,” joked Schuller.

MARYSVILLE — Santa Claus was a busy guy in Marysville on Saturday, Dec. 1, as he posed for photos not only at the Carabinieri Bar espresso stand for the “Passport to Christmas” and in Comeford Park for “Merrysville for the Holidays,” but also at the Marysville Mall to help raise funds for the Marysville Historical Society. “The fun thing about this is that we’ve had a lot of repeat customers,” MHS President Ken Cage said. “A number of kids have come all four years that we’ve had this, but we’ve also had some newcomers this year, who saw the story in The Marysville Globe.” The Santa photo sales were supplemented that day by a bake sale and a raffle prize table, with Cage bragging that the brownies, cookies, fudge and other baked goods were all handmade by MHS members. “With $50 from raffle ticket sales, $20 in goodies sold and about 50-60 kids who came in, I’m guessing we probably made around $400 all told,” MHS Treasurer Meg Engelter said that afternoon, even as families continued to come in for their Santa photos. “By gathering up their emails, we hope to be able to let them know next year when we offer Santa photos again.”

Engelter and Marysville City Council member Steve Muller, also a Board member of the Marysville Historical Society, agreed that the primary fundraising focus for the MHS remains its longawaited museum and community center. “It’s going to be more than a museum,” said Muller, who noted that the hearing examiner will review the conditional use permit for the facility at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 13.

City of Marysville officials and representatives of local service clubs joined MHS members in breaking ground at the site for the facility, adjacent to the Jennings Park Barn area, on Aug. 25 of this year. Muller touted the facility’s planned 200-person grand hall, which he sees as a means of turning it into a center of social and cultural activity, which in turn could provide its own revenue stream. “We won’t have to go out of town for our big celebrations,” Muller said. In the meantime, one of the Marysville Historical Society’s most pressing needs is more volunteers, so those who are interested or would like more information should call Cage at 360-659-3090. The Marysville Historical Society is located in Suite B at 1508 Third St.

of assessed valuation, and the assessed valuation of the city has declined for the fourth year in a row, so the EMS fund will be forced to levy a smaller amount of property taxes in 2013 than what was levied in 2012. Among the 2013 budget’s major revenue assumptions are its population figure of 17,970, as determined by the Office of Financial Management for the state of Washington, and the Snohomish County Assessor’s Office preliminary estimated assessed valuation of $1,732,970,358 for Arlington in 2013, approximately a 4.9 percent reduction from 2012. The city’s utility taxes are 5 percent for water, sewer and storm water; 6 percent for telephone, natural gas and electricity; and 8 percent for cable TV and garbage. The local sales tax for criminal justice funding is authorized at one-tenth of 1 percent of retail sales transacted in Snohomish County, while Arlington receives 1 percent of the 8.6 percent local retail and sales use tax.

The 2013 budget’s estimates for sales tax receipts are based on the prior year’s collection amounts and its utility taxes are based on estimated collections for 2012. During the Council’s Nov. 19 meeting, Council member Debora Nelson had asked Chase, “How do you feel this budget does as far as building reserve funds five years down the line?” “It’s hard to say,” Chase said. “We need to get through this year first, and we have to see how the economy does.” Chase described the 2013 budget as “a difficult budget to put together, involving a lot of different scenarios,” and joined Tolbert in praising city staff for mapping out those possibilities. There was no public testimony during the public hearing on the 2013 budget at the Nov. 19 Council meeting.

Handel’s ‘Messiah’ returns to BPAC

ARLINGTON — More than 100 area singers will come together as the ArlingtonMarysville Community Choir to present George Frederic Handel’s “Messiah” Christmas choruses under the direction of Lyle Forde. The Linda M. Byrnes Performing Arts Center will serve as the site for this Christmas concert on Sunday, Dec. 9, starting at 2:30 p.m., with tickets running $5 per person or $10 for the whole family at the door, for festival seating. “Hallelujah is among the most loved selections from Handel’s masterpiece, and is the closing chorus for the Arlington-area Community Choir and orchestra production,” said Forde, who added that the large choir meets biannually and has estab-

lished a tradition of presenting inspirational Christmas programs featuring a number of selected community musical groups, which include carol sing-alongs and conclude with the most wellknown Christmas choruses from “Messiah.” This concert will also feature the Overman Family Singers, the “4 This Time” girls’ chorus, a vocal quartet, Jazzmine arrangements of holiday music and more. “Though the centerpiece of the program is ‘Messiah,’ the program is one of variety in style and genre,” Forde said. The Linda M. Byrnes Performing Arts Center is located at 18821 Crown Ridge Blvd. in Arlington. For more information, contact Forde via email at llforde@

Among the 2013 budget’s major expenditure assumptions are that service levels for next year will likely decline in several areas due to reductions in city staff that occurred in August and October of this year, while

police enforcement should increase due to the filling of two vacancies in October, and fire staffing is expected to return to its full levels in 2013. Although cost of living adjustments were given to the new American Federation of State Counties and Municipal Employees union in November of this year, no COLA is currently being provided to management or non-represented staff. While AFSCME employees agreed to take eight furlough days in 2012, no furlough days are expected to be required in 2013. Fire and EMS employees have even consented to reduce 2013 holiday pay. The Arlington City Council already voted unanimously to increase the city’s general property taxes, by the allowable 1 percent in 2013, during their regular meeting on Nov. 19, from $1.31 to $1.41 per $1,000 of assessed valuation. However, the Emergency Medical Services levy is already at its maximum limit of 50 cents per $1,000

Arlington tops M-P on the hardcourt BY LAUREN SALCEDO

ARLINGTON — The first regular season game for the Arlington Eagles boys basketball finished in a 58-43 win against the visiting Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks on Tuesday, Nov. 27, at AHS. The Eagles’ 6-foot-5 senior Terry Dawn is the only returning starter, and scored the most points during the game at 16. His teammates, 6-foot-1 senior AJ Passalaqua and 6-foot-5 junior Noah Jones, also scored in the double digits with 13 points each. Marysville-Pilchuck took a three-point lead in the first quarter, but the Eagles brought it back to a 25-21 lead going into halftime. The second half of the game sealed the deal for Arlington, as they scored double the points as the Tomahawks did in the third quarter and another 19 points in the fourth quarter to maintain their lead and capture a 58-43 victory. Eight of the Eagles’ goals were three-pointers. Passalaqua scored three of the three-pointers, as did 5-foot-10 junior Gavin Smoke. Dawn and 6-foot junior Bradey Brummel scored one three-point

goal each. “I thought that all my players did pretty well,” said AHS head coach Nick Brown. “We didn’t do so well in the first half, we had a slow start with first game jitters. But we came out in the second half and our offense started building up a little bit and did a better job of sharing the ball, and we did a better job of staying in front of them and rerouting them.” Brown was impressed with his starters’ performances. “I thought AJ Passalaqua did a pretty good job of making some big shots when we needed him to,” he said. “Terry Dawn did a good job of being a leader on the floor and being a role model. Gavin Smoke made some great shots when we needed him to and, of course, Noah Jones did a really good job of getting the ball on the block and scoring. I thought we played pretty well, though not as well as we could have.” Both teams began practice on Nov. 12. Brown is excited about his team’s show of strength in pre-season practice. “I am very pleased with how we have done so far,” said Brown before the game. “We played

in a jamboree at Garfield High School last Saturday. We competed against Clover Park and Mount Rainier High School. We outscored both teams in a tenminute session against each of the two schools.” Brown is happy to see the return of Dawn, who took time away from football to focus on basketball. “He was all-league Wesco last year,” said Brown. “We also have senior AJ Passalaqua and juniors Noah Jones, Kaleb Bryson, Bradey Brummel and Gavin Smoke.” Overall, the team is getting ready for the season and starting it off right with their victory over the Tomahawks. “I love this group’s passion for basketball, competition, and this team and program,” said Brown. “I can’t say enough good about these young men. They not only are strong basketball players, they are excellent young men.” The Eagles followed up their win over M-P, with a 61-48 victory over Everett High School on Thursday, Nov. 29, and another win over Marysville Getchell on Friday, Nov. 30. They now have a 3-0 overall record for the season.

MARYSVILLE — The start of the season proved exciting for the Arlington High School girls basketball team as they topped the Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks in a 56-31 nonleague victory at M-PHS on Wednesday, Nov. 28. The Eagles held the lead for most of the game, although the first half was a close call. The first quarter gave Arlington a lead of five points, while the first half finished with the Eagles leading 24-19. “The first games are always a little bit messy,” said AHS head coach Joe Marsh. “We were rusty in the first half.” Arlington’s 5-foot-8 sophomore guard Jessica Ludwig led the scoring with 15 points in the game, while 5-foot-7 senior guard Krista Showalter scored 13 points in the game. Ludwig

managed four 3-pointers in the game, while Showalter scored two. Lindsay Brown and Ronnie Ladines were also top scorers, with Brown scoring 11 points and Ladines scoring 9. “We played much better in the second half, we were much more fundamentally strong,” said Marsh. “That’s what we try to do is play a strong basketball game.” Marsh is excited about this year’s team, as the Eagles returned a number of players including six seniors — Showalter, Ladines, Brown, Taylor Graham, Winter Brown and Marissa Swegle. “Krista [Showalter] and Lindsay [Brown] were both second team all-league picks last year,” said Marsh. “Ronnie Ladines, Taylor Graham and Winter Brown are all returning seniors. They know what to do, they know what I want them to do. After that, we are a really young team.”

This year’s varsity roster includes two freshman and one sophomore. “We’ve got Jayla [Russ] who is a freshman but tall, she is 6-feet tall and very athletic. She is really a smart basketball player,” said Marsh. “And Emma [Janousek], our little point guard, is a freshman and she’s the same way, a really solid, smart basketball player.” Following the season opener at MarysvillePilchuck, Arlington faced Stanwood at home on Friday, Nov. 30, and came away with a 55-38 win over the 4A school, when Brown scored 21 points and Showalter scored eight. Brown, Ludwig and Graham each scored a 3-pointer during the game. Their record is now 2-0 overall and they are set to face Marysville Getchell High School Chargers in an away game on Dec. 5 at 7:15 p.m.

LHS presents ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’


LAKEWOOD — This December will mark a number of firsts for the Lakewood High School Drama group — their first holiday play, which is also their first staging of “It’s a Wonderful Life,” the first time that many of the high school actors have worked with younger actors onstage, and some unique casting for a few of the main characters. “It’s a Wonderful Life” takes to the LHS stage at 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 7, and Saturday, Dec. 8, as well as on the following Friday and Saturday, Dec. 14-15, with nearly two dozen high school actors, two middle school actors and two elementary school actors, after LHS Drama teacher Rebecca White was inspired last spring to put on something appropriate for the winter festivities that could also accommodate the larger cast size that’s typical of the school’s fall and winter plays. In order to meet the ratio of male to female actors, however, some characters got noticeable makeovers. While junior Bryce Shepard and senior Alethea Cody are playing George and Mary Bailey, fellow senior Brianna Winegar is playing wheelchair-bound rich villain Mr. Potter as “Ms. Potter,” just as junior Kaley Trapp plays the angel

Clarence as “Clarisse.” “She’s obviously younger than Lionel Barrymore, but I also try to play her more classy and sneaky,” Winegar said of her role. “She doesn’t just straightup hate everyone else, but she wants to own everything they have.” To distinguish Ms. Potter visually, Winegar dons more elegant-looking furs. Trapp likewise acknowledged that Clarisse is much younger than Clarence, but she still plays the character as old enough to be matronly, albeit in an intentionally comic fashion. While Shepard and Cody’s takes on George and Mary are not nearly as far removed from the original versions of the characters, the young actors still felt compelled to create their own takes, rather than merely imitating Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. “I think Bryce plays George as more confused, while Jimmy Stewart was more shocked,” White said. “With Bryce, there’s always this, ‘What’s going on?’” Cody enjoyed working with the younger actors who play George and Mary’s children, which includes Cody’s younger sister, and she found the coordination of the “Buffalo Gals” sequence to be challenging yet rewarding. “Donna Reed’s Mary is more sweet and lets other people influence her a bit

enthusiasm for finally playing a villain has made it all worthwhile to her. The bustling cast has been rehearsing since the first week of October, after auditions late in September, and the actors have found themselves averaging a dozen hours of work a week

on the play, whose extensive set design includes a house, a bridge, an office, a porch and a cemetery. “I’ve always loved the movie, so it just seemed natural to bring it to life,” White said. The Saturday, Dec. 15, showing will be a dinner

theater. General admission is $7, while seniors, children aged 3-10 years and students with ASB will pay $5. Children aged 2 years and younger will be admitted for free. For more information, email White at rwhite@lwsd.wednet. edu.

research and developed a recipe for survival -- dietary changes, an exercise regimen, and better management of stress, to weaken the cancer. He beat the odds of having a disease that, for many other people, has taken their lives much earlier. He fought a courageous 12 ½ -year battle against cancer before it finally claimed him at home on Monday, November 26th in Vancouver, Washington. “He was such an amazing guy,” said his son, Mark. “He was so caring and that came

across with other cancer patients and the cancer community. He was one of those healing individuals that are almost impossible to be in a room with and not come away without feeling better. He had an amazing impact on people”. He loved his 1969 Chevy Impala, NASCAR, and was Greg Biffle’s biggest fan. Watching Greg race his #16 the past 12 years was an important part of O.D.’s therapy. He never missed a race. O.D is survived by his wife of 60 years, Darlene, a sister Illa Faye, his son, Mark, a grandson Jeffrey, and a great grandson, Tigran. Contributions in O.D.’s memory may be given to at 1400 NE 136th Avenue, Vancouver, WA. 98684. 11/29/12 9:45:32 AM


O.D. Burright, born on March 12, 1933 in Logan County, Oklahoma, was the third of four siblings; one brother and two sisters of Orrin and Mabel Burright. In 1940 the Burright family moved to Portland, Oregon from Oklahoma. In 1962 O.D. moved his family to Marysville, Washington just off of Firetrail Road. During a routine physical examination in 2000 O.D. was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a blood cancer. After being diagnosed and facing a prognosis of only a few months to live, O.D. got a second opinion, underwent chemotherapy, radiation and a stem cell transplant that his oncologist recommended. But, in time, realizing that only traditional treatments could not stave off the cancer; he and his son did extensive
