ARLINGTON — Even after a build season that was shortened by a full week due to the first snowstorm of the year, the Arlington High School Robotics Club did better in the FIRST Robotics Competition at Qwest Field in Seattle this year than they’ve done since starting up in 2008. “We made it to the semifinals, which is further than we’ve ever been,” said Josh Rodriguez, the sophomore public relations officer for the Arlington High School Robotics Club. “At two times during the competition we placed sixth out of about 45 teams at the regional. It was unfortunate that we didn’t make it past the semifinals, but we made a lot of progress this year and I’m very

happy with where we ended up.” “I think we did very well,” agreed Caroline Vogl, the freshman head web designer and photographer for the team. “The NeoBots normally finish in the middle, but this time we placed higher and were chosen for an alliance for the finals.” The March 22-24 FIRST Robotics Competition in Seattle marked the culmination of a build season that began on Jan. 7 of this year for the roughly 28-member AHS team, who had to assemble a robot capable of surmounting the multiple challenges of the “Rebound Rumble,” during which alliances of teams had to sink as many basketballs into hoops as they could during matches that lasted two SEE ROBOTICS, PAGE 2

Staying connected with Lakewood schools BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

LAKEWOOD — The Lakewood School District’s kindergarten registration and open house saw the cafeteria and gym of Lakewood High School packed with families on March 20. Amy Staudenraus, the new principal of Lakewood Elementary, touted the school’s new PTA, which is now separate from that of English Crossing Elementary. “All their events have been wellattended so far,” Staudenraus said. “We’ve got 100 percent of our teachers as PTA members, and our PTA enrollment is up 50 percent from last year.” Lakewood Elementary PTA

President Tracy Gieseke and Secretary Lori Wood greeted parents and students that evening, and expressed pride in building their numbers to 113 members for a school of only about 300 students. “We’re really working on connecting with parents and the community,” said Wood, who noted that Lakewood Elementary copes with some of the highest free and reduced lunch percentages and student turnover rates in the district. “Our movie and reading nights have been packed.” Gieseke added that a “Watchdog” program has also SEE SCHOOLS, PAGE 2

sought to involve more male volunteers. Lakewood’s Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program was also represented that night by Program Manager Linda Steinborn and Janet Krutsinger, a teacher for 19 years. “ECEAP is free for limited income and struggling families,” Steinborn said. “We support them by connecting them to resources and helping them serve as resources for each other. It’s a great introduction to the school system. It provides a nurturing environment for students, with an emphasis on social skills.” Matt Blair, assistant principal and athletic director for Lakewood High School, aims to create a hospitable atmosphere for older students as well, and touted the second year of the school’s “Cougar Covenant” as one tool to

help foster a more welcoming spirit. “We have 300 athletes who are being tasked with conducting themselves well in school, at practices, during games and out in the community,” Blair said. “We’re holding them accountable for doing right by physically visible, measurable means, and not just words.” According to Blair, not only the student athletes, but also the athletic director, the coaches and the parents all play parts in maintaining the “Cougar Covenant.” “The kids who play football need to be good to the kids who are just coming in and unsure about high school,” Blair said. “If a kid is getting bullied, he’ll have less of a sense of belonging. We’ve gotten calls and visits from other schools across the country about this program.” While first-time kindergarten registrant parents such as Anna Anderson expressed regrets at not

being able to see the schools that their children would be attending this fall, parents of incoming high schoolers, such as Jackie and Aahron Jensen, appreciated the opportunity to check out their own future school. “I’m nervous but excited,” said Aahron Jensen, 14, currently enrolled at Lakewood Middle School. “I’m looking forward to playing more sports, being more involved and having more freedoms. I liked being able to see all the activities.” Aaron echoed mom Jackie’s approval of the program that also promoted what high school students would need to do to prepare for college. “I’m glad it wasn’t just, ‘Oh, this is what you’ll have to do for high school,’” Jackie Jensen said. “It was overwhelming but very well put together. I liked that it was in the gym as well, and that there were other students for him to talk to.”

ROBOTICS FROM PAGE 1 minutes and 15 seconds each, and concluded by tasking the robots with balancing on bridges. “The higher the hoops that your robot makes baskets in, the more points your team scores,” Rodriguez said. Robert Haynes, the junioryear treasurer and assembly manager for the team, explained that the first week of the six-week build season was devoted to designing their robot, based on basic strategic decisions such as whether their robot would play offense or defense. Sean McClenaghan, the junior-year lead programmer for the team, added that this phase was followed by more in-depth prototyping, to make sure their plans would work as well in the real world as they did on paper. “Even though we lost a week of build time due to snow this year, we still did better than last year,” Rodriguez said.

“I’ve been with this team for four years and I’m proud to see their progress. There were so many ideas that we all melded into this one robot. Not only did this help us develop as problem solvers, but it even strengthened skills we already had.” Justin Haynes AHS Robotics Club “Last year, our robot wasn’t complete by the time we had to ship it off to Qwest Field,” McClenaghan agreed. “This year, it was already fully operational with three days to spare.” Trevor Staiger, the team’s senior vice president, noted that they designed their robot to shoot offensively for the highest hoop. In spite of their lost time, Rodriguez believes the team benefited from a number of new members this year, who helped expedite the programming and mechanics phases of the build season. “I’ve been with this team for four years and I’m proud to see their progress,” said Justin Haynes, the senior electronics lead. “There were so many ideas that we all melded into this one robot. Not only did this help us develop as problem solvers, but it even strengthened skills we already had. I already knew a few things about electronics, but through this experience, I’ve gained more knowledge than I would have done in a normal high school career.” The Arlington High School Robotics Club

had never won an award before, but the team was awarded the Gracious Professionalism Award this year, which Rodriguez credited largely to Justin Haynes’ work in assisting a number of other teams with their technical problems. “Even though you’re competing, you want to help each other achieve,” Justin Haynes said. “We were surrounded by a lot of great teams that were willing to help out and donate parts,” Rodriguez said. “It’s about being worthy opponents,” Vogl said. “We did better this year in general because we decided to go for more awards than in previous years.” As much as she strived to remain gracious, Vogl nonetheless felt heartened to see her team’s robot performing better during a practice session in Tacoma than the other teams in attendance, especially given her belief that the Arlington High School Robotics Club was held back a bit by its tight budget. For his part, Rodriguez suspects some members of the team could have done with a few more hours of sleep, although he praised his team for being alert and awake enough to recover quickly when their robot’s conveyor slipped off. “The biggest problem, however, was during the first match of semifinals, when all three robots on our alliance lost connection after the autonomous period and sat there doing nothing for the rest of the match,” Rodriguez said. “Our team came to the competition very prepared for what was to come, though, and for the most part we did well in the matches we were in.” Rodriguez’s experience taught him not to fix parts of the robot that aren’t broken, but he also spoke highly of the other teams for their cooperative spirit. Although Vogl was a bit disappointed not to receive the Chairman’s Award that she’d worked so hard for, she was gratified to be able to get her photo taken with FIRST founder Dean Kamen, whose visit to the Seattle regionals was a surprise.

Counting my blessings


wept in the car when I left the Marysville Food Bank. In the passenger GUEST seat, my friend didn’t interOPINION rupt, certain I had no immeJ.R. NAKKEN diate reason for unhappy tears. And she was right, of course. I was crying for joy. What thought had I ever given to our local food bank? Yes, I had put a can of something from my grocery bags into the barrel at the store when it was manned (usually womanned) and its sentry asked me to do so. Stuff from my pantry shelves, mostly esoteric and unused for months since purchase, went to a girlfriend’s annual drive at her office. A can or two went to the local casino’s outreach, when it offered five bucks free play for each donation. My visual concept was, I fear, of the downtrodden and homeless being handed bunches of wilted carrots by dour do-gooder clerks. I was in for a surprise, and challenge you to take a walk through the lines at 6518 60th Drive NE. The desk clerk who verified my friend’s eligibility and issued the wooden token that added federal commodities to her choices was more courteous than the receptionist at my beauty shop. A smiling volunteer handles the cart for each shopper, many of whom are elders. He/she explains the choices, does the reaching and lifting and keeps the lines moving. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that this week’s federal commodities were Kellogg’s Corn Flakes and an off brand of creamed corn. Her cart soon filled with frozen meats, cheese, eggs, produce and canned goods, mostly donations from local businesses. (Another volunteer told me that the grocery/department store where I shop had just given them $18,000 to replace a freezer.) She scored a bag of dinner rolls from the huge bread selection, delighted to have something to take to a mid-week potluck. I made a silent vow to put something worthwhile in the donation barrel each trip to the store. So, why was I weeping? Counting my blessings caused some of the flood. But it began at the next-to-last stop of my friend’s cart. “Do you need cat food?” asked the volunteer. Many single elders have only their pets for companions, and I was touched by this outreach. Then, at the door, the happy man who wheeled our cart and unloaded our groceries was also distributing from a case of egg dyes and a pile of colorful plastic baskets. The children of young families who are food-bank eligible would not be without a back yard egg hunt, and these items were not surplus. It was two weeks before Easter. Our food bank and its generous suppliers seem to know that man does not live by bread alone. J.R. Nakken is a writer who lives on Tulalip. THE MARYSVILLE

An open letter to grandchildren


s your moms and dads know all too well, each generation thinks up ways to break loose and invents styles and behaviors to artfully annoy parents. I know because I’ve been there and done that. And then you try the hyper-private thing. A parent asks, “Where are you going?” You say, “Out.” “Who will you be with?” “Some of the guys.” “When will you be back?” “After a while.” Good parents do manage to wring a few particulars from tightmouthed sons but it takes work. Daughters are another issue. Luckily it’s a phase that, for most kids, passes. In some ways, kids of the 13th Century had it easy. Aside from starvation, disease, pillage and plunder, hundreds of years went by without much change to their neighborhoods. Generations cycled through the same houses, doing the same things, working at the same jobs with the same tools. One year was pretty much the same as the next. Not so these days. I grew up with a technology that any thinking person could tinker with. When my car’s engine sputtered in a particular way, I loosened the screw securing the distributor. After turning it a couple of degrees one way I tightened it and fired it up. If it backfired and chugged fitfully, I turned it a bit the other way. Chances were that fixed it. Trial and error. When the TV picture went bonkers I pulled vacuum tubes from its chassis (think motherboard) and socketed them into a tube-tester at the hardware store. When the tester’s needle didn’t swing into the green, a tube needed to be replaced. Vacuum tubes made sense. Some had plates inside to hold electric charges. A signal from an antenna was amplified onto the plate so that



electrons wandering by could be regulated like cars in a regulated onramp. If handled right, the electron stream was readied to do something useful and that’s pretty much why cathode rays splattered black and white images onto TV screens. No mystery. Other faulty bits of early radios and TVs could be cut out and new ones soldered in. Parts were big enough for pliers or soldering irons. A little training and a person could follow a circuit like a road map, seeing how resistors and capacitors and tubes did their work to turn broadcast signals into intelligent sounds and pictures. It made visual sense. That was then. This is now. People who grew up in that bygone era were smart in a way that fit technology that could actually be repaired. So we had radio and TV repair shops in most neighborhoods and car repair was done at the local service station. When simpler gadgets malfunctioned, they were taken apart on the kitchen table. And fixed. Nowadays, car problems are diagnosed with analyzers that even tell which tire is low. Whatever happens inside a smart phone is totally incomprehensible. You don’t fix them. You throw them away and get another. TV repairmen don’t really fix anything anymore. They unplug components, toss them out and plug in new modules. That’ll be $300 plus tax please. Kids have no idea what goes on in today’s phones, computers or e-readers nor do they get hung up by needing to know. Having grown up with mysterious gadgetry, they don’t

question the leaps of faith it takes to accept whatever goes on inside. They can do that. I can’t. I’m not totally comfortable trusting black boxes full of sub-microscopic secrets and that’s my excuse for not getting my mind around computer issues and stuff like programming new TV sets. What does that make me? Obsolete, antiquated, outmoded and dated. Guilty as charged. The grandkids see me struggle to fix things that, in their world, would be in the bottom of the garbage can. They watch me with wonder, like anthropologists watching apes probe termite mounds with sticks. Look, they say, he’s learned to use tools! That archaic way of dealing with things grew from necessity. Because television sets were notorious for jumpy images that rolled up or down screens, a lot of time was spent fiddling with Vertical and Horizontal Hold knobs or doing the tube-test thing. Cars ran okay most of the time, but parts weren’t made to today’s exacting tolerances so they needed a lot of fixing during lives that fell short of 100,000 miles. In fact it was a rare odometer that could even register beyond 100,000. Aging cars, a.k.a. rust-buckets, jalopies or rattle-traps, were teenagers’ schools for automotive technology. Tearing a motor apart to replace rings and whatever was an important step toward manhood, a rite of passage. No auto-shop class needed. No computers, no black-boxes. Just a few of crescent and end wrenches and a couple of screwdrivers. That’s the way my mind still works. Give me something observable to deal with and I’ll handle it. But give me a black box of mysteries all covered with push-buttons and I’ll pass it off to a grandson or granddaughter as quick as I can. Comments may be addressed to

Cascade Skagit Health Alliance opens in Smokey Point movable computer terminals with which they and their healthcare providers can access their fully digital medical records. “The beds are wider than industry standard, and you

can raise the back up and down, so you don’t have to step up on it,” Jacobs said. “We even have buffer screens in the doorjambs, so that people outside can’t see through the crack of the

door when it’s being opened or closed.” To further facilitate patient care, in part by encouraging healthcare providers to stay on their feet, none of the healthcare providers at the Cascade Skagit Health Alliance have their own offices. Instead, they all work from a long hallway of computer terminals, that also allows them greater freedom of movement between the “healthways” of patient rooms. “We also made sure the call center was separate from the front desk, so that those who called in would have privacy while reception staff would be able to focus fully on the people standing in

front of them.” “It’s gratifying when an idea can become a reality like this,” Davidson said. “We’re improving access to healthcare for the region, in a healing environment that looks less institutional, through the use of stone and wood and other natural elements, to help create the best experience possible for patients.” Cavanaugh compared the opening of the Cascade Skagit Health Alliance to his recent climb up Mount Kilimanjaro, when he reached a plateau near the top and realized that his hike to the top was not yet done. “We’ve still got a ways to go,” Cavanaugh said. “But it’s worth the climb.”

SMOKEY POINT — The longtime collaboration between the Cascade Valley Hospital and Clinics in Arlington and the Skagit Valley Hospital in Mount Vernon is now set is stone, literally, with the opening of the Cascade Skagit Health Alliance, a 42,000-squarefoot multi-specialty medical facility in Smokey Point. The facility opened to patients on March 26, but not before a VIP open house on March 22, which offered guided tours of the two-story building’s host of unique features. Clark Jones, administrator of the Cascade Valley Hospital and Clinics, was joined by Dr. Tim Cavanaugh, the board chair for Cascade Valley, as well as Gregg Davidson, CEO of the Skagit Valley Hospital, and Jim Hobbs, Skagit Valley’s longest serving commissioner, in celebrating the opening of the facility, on time and $1 million under budget. “We’d originally projected a total cost of $12.5 million, but we’re now looking at $11.5 million,” said Jones, who credited these savings to Botesch, Nash & Hall Architects and Synergy Construction. This investment has given the Cascade Skagit Health Alliance 58 examination rooms and four procedure rooms in primary care, 10 examination rooms and two procedure rooms in urgent care, a short-bore MRI and a digital X-ray, for a starting crew of 14 primary care and three urgent care physicians to practice family, internal and occupational medicine, as well as pediatrics and women’s health, with full lab services. The facility will even host three oncologists and a rotating trio of specialists in not only oncology, but also cardiology and plastic and reconstructive surgery. “We’re expanding primary and urgent care from our current hours, moving our cancer care from the hospital and bringing specialists to the area who weren’t previously available,” Jones said. “And this is just the start. We’ll be adding more personnel as time goes on.” “This is an excellent example of the very successful collaboration between our two hospitals,” Hobbs said. “We’re working together to better meet the needs of our patients. It’s the hospitals that will rise to the challenge of new healthcare demands

that will survive.” Beverly Jacobs, the on-site director of operations, showed off the facility’s “healthways” of patient rooms with electronically adjustable patient beds and

Arlington claims 8-4 victory over Lynnwood

ARLINGTON — The Arlington Eagles faced off against Lynnwood on March 22 and kicked off the game with a five-run first inning on their way to an 8-4 victory.

“We had some kids with really big nights,” said Arlington head coach Scott Striegel. “We had five runs in the first inning on four base hits, three of which were

doubles. That provided us with some motivation and really got us feeling good about ourselves and swinging the bats from then on.” Senior Colton Hordyk was

The Lynwood catcher waits for the throw as Arlington High School’s Mario Mirante slides into home on March 22.

2-for-3 at the plate with a double, a home run, a stolen base and three runs scored. “Ryan Walker was also 2-for-3 with a run scored and a stolen base, and DJ Smith was 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBIs and a stolen base,” said Striegel. “And Mario Mirante had a huge threeRBI, two-out double in the first inning that provided a huge lift for us and really got us rolling.” Striegel, who is in his first year as head coach after five years as the junior varsity coach, said his team hadn’t been swinging the bats very well early in the season, but has seen improvements in recent outings. “Against Lynnwood, we had our best game at the plate all year,” said Striegel. “Unfortunately, with the weather at the beginning of the season we spent a lot of time in the gym and didn’t see a lot of live pitching.” In addition to the hitters having a good game, Arlington had some strong performances on the pitcher’s mound. “Ryan Walker went four innings, struck out seven and didn’t give up any hits,” said Striegel. “He had a great outing. He was pretty dominant. He did get himself into a little bit of trouble in the

fourth inning when he loaded the bases on a couple of walks and a hit batter, but then he just really beared down and took control and didn’t give up any more after that first run. He was really impressive for his first 4A varsity start as a pitcher.” Reece Lamie pitched two innings and in the seventh DJ Smith went in and had a 1-2-3 inning, throwing only seven pitches. While Arlington had a good game at the plate and on the mound, its defense had some issues. “We had played really good defense up to this point but we had four errors against Lynnwood,” said Striegel. “We had only made four errors all year and we had four errors in this game, which shows how well our pitchers did in working past them.” Despite the errors, the coach said the defense did a good job in not allowing multiple errors in the same inning and didn’t let the errors compound themselves and get worse. “Staying positive and getting the next guy out was huge for us,” said Striegel. “We didn’t let the game get out of control. We stayed tough and we able to come out with the win.”

Lakewood grad wins wrestling championship BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — Christina Ordonez started wrestling in her junior year at Lakewood High School and, this spring, the LHS Class of 2009 alum saw her five years of hard work in the field pay off. Ordonez won First-Place All-American at 159 pounds in the National College Women’s Wrestling Association National Championships in Daytona Beach, Fla., from March 8-10. “There was a total of 40 girls at the tournament, and only three in my weight class,” said Ordonez, currently a student at Central Washington University in Ellensburg. “I only had two matches.” Although she’s modest about her successes, Ordonez has devoted a great deal of effort and countless hours to training and competing. “A friend of mine got into it because it seemed like a great way to get into really good shape,” Ordonez said, before laughing, “Of course, you wind up in a little worse shape after your season,

when you’re eating as much as you were during the season.” Ordonez described strength as one of her assets as a wrestler, both at LHS and at Jamestown College in North Dakota, which she attended before going to CWU. “I like wrestling because you can work hard and see improvement within a couple of weeks,” Ordonez said. “My techniques and habits have changed as I’ve chosen to work on different areas.” While Ordonez picked up what she called “bread and butter” techniques, such as arm-bars and pinning, at Lakewood, she believes the much more valuable gift that her years of wrestling for Lakewood gave her was confidence. “It taught me the right mentality,” said Ordonez, who won a state championship in her second year of wrestling for Lakewood. “If you’re going up against someone who doesn’t think they’re going to lose, you’ll have a hard time beating them, because they’ve got that fight in them.”

Aside from the days when she’s been home from school, Ordonez’s schedule from September of last year up to the NCWWA National Championships in March has been a near-constant series of practices and matches, as well as weightlifting three times a week during the quarter leading up to her trip to Daytona Beach. “Wrestling against some of the big names in college wrestling as a freshman benefited me, I think,” said Ordonez, who’s part of a women’s wrestling club at CWU, but was a member of the school team at Jamestown, which offered it as a varsity sport. “Wrestling has definitely been an experience. It’s the best choice I ever made. I’m still building my skills, but I’m happy to be good.” Ordonez encouraged other young women to look into wrestling, since women’s wrestling programs are on the grow on many college campuses. “You get to travel and bond with your teammates,” Ordonez said. “I can’t describe the feeling of sisterhood that you get from it.”

Shirley Case, left, and Ruth Yost share smiles in front of the Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society’s wall of 1964 Arlington Times issues on March 10.


ARLINGTON — The Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society marked their move to their new location at 215 S. French Ave. with a grand opening celebration on Saturday, March 10, to show the community the research resources available to them at the new facility. “The guests were very impressed with the wall of 1964 Arlington Times issues in the main meeting room, as well as the warm, light feeling,” said Shirley Case, publicity chair for the Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society. “The head librarian created this fascinating wall by using the newspapers to highlight many local families and businesses.” According to Case, more than 50 people stopped by the Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society that Saturday, many of whom sat down with librarians to learn how to research their own family roots, browsed through local historical records or spent time reviewing some of the many volumes of Civil War-related materials on site. Case explained that the Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society’s library moved to 215 S. French Ave., next to the former Arlington High School building, from its previous location on Olympic Avenue because the cost of the new facility was cheaper, “and the work of the members and the Kiwanis Club of Arlington made it extremely successful.” The Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 1 p.m. to provide presentations on local history or genealogical research methods. On Tuesday, April 10, at 1 p.m., local historian and author Penny Buse of Stanwood will be presenting insights into the research she did for her book, “Stuck in the Mud,” about the Warm Beach area. “This is a well-researched book of interest to anyone in the area, and Ms. Buse has many articles from the beach and surrounding area,” Case said. “The community is invited to attend this free presentation.” There will be copies of Buse’s book available for purchase at the conclusion of her presentation. If you

ARLINGTON — Arlington Police responded from within Arlington High School at 2:47 p.m. on Wednesday, March 21, to a report of an individual on or near campus with a gun. The city’s School Resource Officer was contacted by students who reported an individual on campus with a gun. Arlington Police made contact with the individual on the sidewalk in front of the school, and discovered a compressed air pellet gun and an illegal knife in his possession. The 18-year old man from Everett is being booked into the Marysville Municipal Jail for possession of an illegal knife. The man is a student at the Northwest Regional Learning Center, run by the Northwest Educational Service District 189, and housed at Weston High School, located on the 4400 block of 172nd Street in Arlington. It appears that the student typically takes a bus from Weston High School to Arlington High School and is then transported back to Everett.

Capt. Ruth to take command of USS Nimitz

EVERETT — Capt. Jeffrey S. Ruth will take command of USS Nimitz (CVN 68) from Capt. Paul O. Monger during a ceremony on Thursday, March 29, at 10 a.m. aboard the aircraft carrier while in port at Naval Station Everett. Rear Adm. Peter A. Gumataotao — Commander, Carrier Strike Group 11 — will be the guest speaker. Monger assumed command of the Nimitz in August of 2009 and led the ship through an eightmonth deployment, during which the ship launched more than 2,600 combat missions in direct support of Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom. Under Monger’s leadership, the Nimitz steamed more than 77,000 nautical miles, safely completed more than 12,000 aircraft sorties and success-

fully completed a rigorous Board of Inspection and Survey (INSURV) material inspection. Under Monger’s watch, the Nimitz also completed a 15-month, $239 million, 700,000 mandays Docking Planned Incremental Availability — a most successful maintenance availability package completed at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. The ship also conducted two changes of home port within a 12-month period, relocating more than 3,000 Nimitz sailors and families from San Diego, Calif., to Bremerton, Wash., then to Everett. During Monger’s tenure, the Nimitz earned the Adm. Vern Clark Unit Safety Award in 2010, its sixth consecutive Golden Anchor Award, the Capt. Ney Food Service Award for 2010, the 2010 AIMD Black “E,” its seventh and

eighth consecutive medical Blue “M,” and a second consecutive Green Safety “S.” Prior to arriving to the Nimitz, Ruth commanded the U.S. Sixth Fleet’s flag-

ship, USS Mount Whitney (LCC 20). He entered the nuclear power training pipeline in July of 2006 and served as executive officer of USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) from March of

2008 to December of 2009. Ruth was born in Key West, Fla., grew up in San Diego, and graduated with distinction from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1986 with a Bachelor of Science degree

in aeronautical engineering. He reported to flight school at Naval Air Station Pensacola later that year, and was designated a Naval Flight Officer in January of 1988.

er and youth advocate, and has been providing training to EvCC student leaders for 10 years. The goal of the conference is to inspire middle and high school students of color to expand their education and career goals, according to Karena Hooks, EvCC director of outreach and diversity. Hooks explained that students of color in Snohomish County are disproportionately affected by poverty and reduction in resources, which contribute to low retention and graduation rates. “We want students to leave the conference believing in the possibilities of a ‘Yes I can’ attitude, and knowing that help is available to them,” said Bill Reed, an EvCC accounting instructor and co-founder of the conference. The conference is cosponsored by the city of Everett, Snohomish County, and Everett and Marysville public schools. For more information, visit soccc.

Cascade Valley Hospital, Sea Mar offer whooping cough vaccine

SNOHOMISH COUNTY — With reported cases of whooping cough reaching what Snohomish Health District officials have deemed epidemic numbers, area health agencies are taking steps to help protect the public. “Marysville has been hit particularly hard,” said Suzanne Pate, public information officer for the Snohomish Health District, whose numbers showed Marysville lead-

adults older than 18, the remaining 19 cases were children aged 5-17 years. Marysville showed a similar distribution of cases, with six affecting adults older than 18, three diagnoses of whooping cough in children aged 1-4 years, and only one confirmed case of an infant less than a year old contracting the illness, while the remaining 48 reports were for children aged 5-17 years. Last year, 224 confirmed cases were reported to the Snohomish Health District, including one infant death. Dr. Gary Goldbaum, health

ing the way in confirmed cases of whooping cough — 58 for the year as of March 15, out of the 178 confirmed cases reported to the Snohomish Health District during that time — while Arlington tied with Lake Stevens for second place, with 22 confirmed cases reported for each of the two towns. Everett came in third with 20 cases. While one of Arlington’s cases was a child aged 1-4 years, and two others were

officer for the Snohomish Health District, nonetheless believes whooping cough in Snohomish County is not limited by age groups or geography, since a combination of factors could cause more reports in certain cities, including physicians who might be more alert to the signs of whooping cough in those areas. Most cases of whooping cough go unreported, especially in adults. Cascade Valley Hospital in Arlington will be giving commuters a chance to receive free whooping cough shots after work on Wednesday,

April 4, between 4-8 p.m. in the Rainier Room at 330 S. Stillaguamish Ave. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are recommended by calling 425-339-8694 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Tuesday, April 3. The Snohomish Health District will provide about 250 adult doses of whooping cough vaccine, made available through the AmeriCares patient assistance program and a $5,000 grant from the Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation. Three previous free clinics in Snohomish County vaccinated a total of 756 adults. Snohomish Health District officials encourage all adults, especially those who have contact with infants, to get vaccinated. People of all ages need booster shots to main-

tain their immunity, and most adults aren’t up to date on their shots. A single shot known as “Tdap” prevents not only whooping cough, but also tetanus and diphtheria. Children’s vaccines are free or low-cost, while vaccines for adults may be covered by private health insurance or Medicaid, or offered at reduced cost at the Sea Mar Community Health Center in Marysville, at 9710 State Ave., as well as the Community Health Centers and Snohomish Health District clinic in Everett, the latter based on income. You can download vaccine information sheets and consent forms in English and Spanish at the Snohomish Health District’s website, at

Local residents in amazement yesterday as Collectors provide a stimulus package to Marysville! They are paying on the spot for my stuff. Unbelievable!! By DAVID MORGAN STAFF WRITER

Spokesperson for the event said he expects to spend in excess of $200,000.00 this week for vintage items and precious metals from local residents. Here are some examples of what is going on in the event that started Tuesday in the Holiday Inn Express: One person sold an old Gibson guitar that was purchased in the 1960’s for less than $250.00 to a collector at the event for $2175.00 Another person had a pocket watch collection that sold for $4600.00, with one of the watches in this collection bringing $375.00 of the $4600.00 talley. A husband and wife brought in a box of old Jewelry, wristwatches, coins, and two German daggers from WW2

and left $785.00 richer. This is cool that something like this would come here to our town. Where else would this stuff ever be sold? The refinery has teamed up with the collectors for a 24 month tour of the United States, both big and small towns to dig up hidden gems.

Items we will accept include: Sterling Silverware Sterling Silver Tea Sets Dental Gold • Silver Dollars All Coins Dated 1964 & Earlier Scrap Jewelry • Industrial Scrap All forms of Platinum

Above • Refinery representatives will be on hand through Saturday to purchase all gold, silver and platinum items, as well as coins. Public welcome!

Items of Interest: Vintage Guitars: Martin, Gibson, Fender, National, Rickenbacker, Gretsch, Mandolins, Banjos and others. Pocket Watches: Hamilton, Illinois, Waltham, Patek Phillipe, Ball, Howard, South Bend, Elgin and others Wrist watches: Omega, Accutron, Longines, Hamilton, Breitling and many more. Old paper money: United States, Confederate States, Blanket Bills, $1000.00 bills and more. Antique Toys: Trains, Tin wind-ups, Mechanical Banks, Robots, Pressed Steel trucks, and many more. War Memorabilia: Swords, Bayonets, Helmets, German, Confederate, Union, USA, and others.

Dozens cash in yesterday with jewelry, railroad watches and guitars. An estimated $200,000 in Marysville! By DAVID MORGAN STAFF WRITER

The first days of the reclamation drive in Marysville will be a hit with those looking to sell their gold and silver. Representatives are on hand this week purchasing all types of unwanted and broken jewelry. An estimated 55 people left the event with over $200 dollars from old class rings, wedding bands, herringbones, and gold teeth. Coins dated 1970 and earlier were bringing big premiums as well. Silver dollars, halves and quarters arrived in large quantities. Lots of gold coins were also brought in. Rebecca Hughes walked away with over $1200.00 after selling an original $20 gold piece from 1888. On the other side of the room were representatives

from the Buyers Association. They were purchasing all types of guitars, large currency bills dated before 1923, military items and pocket watches. One watch was purchased by a collector in Montana for $835 dollars. There were piles of sterling silver items like old silverware sets and tea pots. One gentleman rolled a cart in with 3 boxes full of silver coins. Company officials reported spending over $80,000 the first day of the event, alone. Brian Eades with Ohio Valley said, “We have had an overwhelming turnout this first day and we expect to get busier every day this week.” The event continues today and runs through Saturday. The event is free and the public is welcome.

Amazing Technology Relieves Serious Back Pain

Who Else Wants to Get Rid of Sciatica, Bulging Discs, And Leg Pain Once And For All? “But I feel fine – as long as I take my pain pills.”


There’s a time to use pain medications, BUT not before seeking a natural way to correct the CAUSE of the problem!


aving back and leg pain can feel like a crippling condition.

Spinal decompression just may be the answer that you’ve been looking for. Ask yourself … after taking all these pain medications and playing the ‘wait and see game’, maybe for years…are you any better off?

You might not be able to play golf, work, or even sit in the car for a 30-minute drive. It’s almost impossible for anyone around you to understand how you feel. You can’t remember the last time you even had a restful night’s sleep.

Call 360-474-9900 and tell the receptionist you’d like to come in for the Special Decompression Evaluation before April 10, 2012.

If you’ve suffered from any of these annoying conditions, you may have “Sciatica”.

Sciatica is a compression of the sciatic nerve, usually by an L4 or L5 disc herniations. As you know, sciatica can be a very painful problem, even crippling at times. Nothing’s worse than feeling great mentally, but physically feeling held back from life because your back or sciatica hurts and the pain just won’t go away!

I look forward to helping you get rid of your pain so you can start living a healthier, more joyful life. Sincerely,

Fortunately, if you are suffering from any of these problems, they may be relieved or eliminated by nonsurgical spinal decompression.

No Dangerous Drugs, No Invasive Procedures, And No Painful Exercises

Here’s the point of all these studies… spinal decompression has a high success rate with helping disc herniations, sciatica, and back pain.

Spinal decompression treatments are very gentle. In fact, I even catch a few patients sleeping during sessions every once and awhile.

“I had pain in my lower back which radiated into my left leg and foot, causing me to have severe foot drop, where I could not lift my foot when walking. I came to the Arlington Spine Center and Dr. Peseau examined me and explained my condition and the risks of not getting treatment and the benefits of his Spinal Decompression Program. I decided to start the Spinal Decompression Program and the results have exceeded my expectations. The treatment is extremely comfortable and now the LIFE is returning to my leg and I can lift my foot again. The process has been positive and pleasant. At my age of 78, I really need to stay mobile and I am determined to make a full recovery. Thank you to the doctors and staff at the Arlington Spine Center for their dedication to helping senior citizens like myself lead more active and mobile lifestyles! ~ Gertrude Pater
