Meanwhile, they become familiar with more complex aspects of the language by engaging in adventures, tactile and movement-based games that require them to solve simple problems - in their new language, of course! For more information visit langonorthsound.com.

Our early elementary students learn their new language through adventures and activities that require increasing levels of engagement and understanding over time, and that reward kids with a feeling of accomplishment. A simple literacy component ensures that these students not only listen, speak, sing and play in their new language, but read and write as well. Classes are taught almost entirely in Spanish using Lango’s graduated immersion approach. For more information visit langonorthsound.com.

Newest Councilmembers get busy out of the gate The City of Marysville welcomed two new City Councilmembers with the swearing in of Rob Toyer and Steve Muller in January. Both are busy out of the gate. Muller and Toyer served previously on the Planning Commission, so are well versed in community issues and priorities. Muller is a lifelong resident of Marysville. Prior to his election to the Council, he served 12 years on the Planning Commission, including 10 as chairman. As a community volunteer, Muller has served on the boards of the YMCA, Chamber of Commerce, Marysville Noon Rotary and the Food Bank, Healthy Communities Leadership Committee, and overseen many school district bond and levy committees. He and his wife, Donna, have Muller two sons, Nicholas and Schuyler. Muller is serving on the City Economic Development Council, Government Affairs Committee, Library Board and Public Works Committee. Toyer, a lifelong Marysville resident, spent six years serving in the Marine Corps and in 2003 as a Reservist, was called into active duty during Operation Iraqi Freedom before an honorable discharge as a Sergeant in 2007. He founded Toyer Wealth Management in 2010. Toyer earned his bachelor's degree in Finance from Western Washington University. He is active in several business and community organizations in Snohomish County. Toyer serves on the Finance and Public Safety Committees, Graffiti Task Toyer Force, and alternate to the county Housing and Community Development Block Grant Board. Toyer and Muller succeed longtime Councilmembers John Soriano and Lee Phillips, who opted not to run again to spend more time with family. Voters also returned Carmen Rasmussen and Michael Stevens to the Council. Rasmussen has served on the Council since 2005. Stevens joined the Council in September 2010. 29


GENERAL NEWS Crime analysis a powerful tool for police in solving crime, seeing patterns and trends In June 2009, two fugitives wanted in the robbery and gruesome murder of a 73-year-old Marysville woman fled cross country in her stolen car. For three days, the pair went on a spending spree using her stolen credit cards, driving through several states until reaching Minnesota, then heading south on Interstate 35 toward Missouri. Detectives were tipped off on the suspects’ whereabouts when the men tried to use Sweeton's cards in Iowa. Authorities alerted the Missouri State Highway Patrol, who arrested the two men at an I-35 rest stop at about 7 p.m. just across the Iowa border north of Maybel, Mo., within an hour and a few miles of where Marysville Police’s Crime Analyst projected they would be. It wasn’t paranormal psychic abilities that so precisely tracked the fugitives’ every move; it was the cold calculations of crime analysis and gumshoe detective work that brought their getaway to an end (The two were later convicted and imprisoned).

The case aptly illustrates how crime analysis gives a 21st Century boost to traditional police work and investigations. Police Chief Rick Smith founded the Crime Analysis Unit in 2008 that is overseen by Bob Dolhanyk, Police Administrative Division Manager, who himself is trained in crime analysis. Crime Analyst Don Castanares was hired in October 2008. He retired from the Army after 20 years as a Military Intelligence Analyst and Technical Intelligence Analyst stationed several years at Fort Lewis as a Senior Security and Intelligence Advisory. “Crime analysis is a specialized profession in policing that identifies, analyzes and proposes solutions to patterns and trends in crime,” says Smith. “It’s a great tool that we rely on and use regularly, and our crime analyst is doing an outstanding job,” Smith says. Crime analysts study crime reports, arrest reports and police calls for service to identify emerging patterns, series and trends as quickly as possible. Crime analysis and the data it generates is a valuable tool to the department’s proactive N.I.T.E. team of swift-action officers and their job of rooting out specific criminal activity in Marysville, the Detectives Division and various units in the Police Department, and has been a contributing factor to the City’s seeing its overall crime rate drop 15 percent through August 2011 compared with 2010 levels. Graffiti is another area where crime analysis is leaving its mark. Marysville Public Works and the Graffiti Task Force since 2008 have been working with the City GIS mapping staff to plot and track instances of graffiti in Marysville, including distinguishing “artistic” graffiti created by name-seeking taggers from gang-related graffiti. The end product is a Tagger Database and book of graffiti offenders that is deep in offender background and “tag” details, 30

kept by Castanares. When taggers are arrested, they go in the book, including mug shot photo, graffiti samples, and with whom they associate. Graffiti incidents as of September 2011 had decreased 28% over the same period last year. Crime analysis is heavy on data mining, mapping, statistics, research methods, charts, critical thinking and understanding criminal behavior. That’s the kind of numbers-intensive work that Castanares enjoys. “We’re analytical people who like to figure out puzzles,” he says. “We like math, charts, graphs and technology.” Sometimes the analysis is tactical, supporting investigative field work and serial crime-solving. Other times it is adminis-

Among its many uses, crime analysis maps criminal activity to help police identify patterns, and where to target enforcement.

trative or strategic, looking at long-term trends and patterns in crime. A review of Marysville crimes per 1,000 citizens found that 2010’s rate of 33.4 crimes per 1,000 was the lowest since 1997, and the city has been below the statewide crime rate average 12 of the past 14 years. Dolhanyk and Castanares agree that when it comes down to it, criminals are often predictable, drawn to what is familiar, comfortable and successful. “Most criminals – most people, for that matter – are creatures of habit,” Dolhanyk says. “We count on that. Crime analysis takes advantage of this human flaw.”

❑ Most burglaries in Marysville occur on Mondays and Fridays, between the hours of 11 a.m.-4 p.m. ❑ Commercial and residential burglaries spike on the 15th and 25th-28th of each month.

Probation is the court’s eyes, ears holding offenders accountable When offenders find themselves guilty of charges in Marysville’s criminal justice system and sentenced by a judge to court-ordered sanctions, it’s the Probation Officer’s role to hold them accountable to the court for their actions. “I am an arm of the court, and I am the eyes and ears of the court,” says Chris Hornung, the city’s sole Probation Officer. On average, Hornung carried 179 cases a month last year, a weighty file caseload for a job done by paper and pen when she started in 2006, before the court upgraded to caseload management software. The court also reported 2,000 hearings for out-of-compliance cases. Hornung monitors adult misdemeanor offenders – from low risk to high - and holds them answerable to court-ordered conditions. While she works largely behind the scenes, her job entails working with the court, law enforcement, commu-

nity resources, and victim advocates to enhance community safety and facilitate offenders' rehabilitation. Probation is a vital part of the criminal justice system. It requires the officer to stay committed to the offender and ensure they don’t reoffend. Most times, the offender must report to the Probation Officer at least every other week for drug testing or a catch-up on whether they are complying with probation terms. Probation officers have to be able to deal with many different types of situations, and while sometimes “you need to be the hammer,” says Hornung, there’s one trait that is essential to the job. “Compassion for what you do and the people you see,” she says. “The people I see face many challenges, and they’re under a lot of pressure,” especially firsttimers.

GENERAL NEWS Jury duty: for a little inconvenience, a satisfying, rewarding civic obligation The dog ate my summons. I’ll be out of the country. The boss can’t afford to lose me for a day or two. No one likes getting that summons to report for jury duty. Marysville Municipal Court clerks have heard all the reasons for dodging jury duty, or worse, completely ignoring a summons by simply not responding when it comes in the mail. It’s unfortunate, court officials say, because many people don’t know what they are missing. “Surveys have found time and again that people strongly believe that jury duty should be fulfilled, even if inconvenient,” Municipal Judge Fred Gillings says. “Surveys also show that while many have low expectations going into the process, after the fact they appreciate the chance to participate.” Court Administrator Suzanne Elsner says that’s reflected in the exit surveys the court has jurors complete, pulling from a random stack of questionnaires. “We get many ‘Thanks for the opportunity to serve’ comments, and others who say that jury duty was not what they were expecting.” Jury duty is an important feature of civic participation in our democracy, a citizen’s chance to speak for the community, deliberate and make fair decisions in a judicial system that couldn’t function

without it, Elsner says. Not showing up and ignoring a summons can have real consequences for court operations, and the individual summoned. Undersized jury pools can bring justice to a halt. Court officials typically summons about 50 residents for a six-juror panel, and excuse 10-15 people for valid reasons. If turnout is too few to enable city prosecutors and public defenders to exercise their preemptive challenges each can use during jury selection to excuse jurors they believe would not be helpful to their side, the trial winds up continued. “If you get a summons, we’d appreciate it if you would show up,” she says. “Your service as a juror is very important to us; we will do all we can to make your time with us comfortable, with the least amount of disruption to your life.” A jury duty summons is a lawful court order directing the citizen to appear; failing to show is considered contempt of court. The way the system works, jurors are summoned randomly two months prior to a trial date and scheduled at the time of trial. Jurors serving in Marysville Municipal Court must be residents of Marysville or the cities of Arlington or Lake Stevens, both of which contract for court (and jail) services. The court sends a reminder four weeks prior to the trial date to those who have not yet responded. Those who are

GENERAL NEWS Share your comments, ideas for Community Development Block Grant Consolidated Plan

City offers online permitting starting in April The City of Marysville will expand its pay online services when it goes live with online residential permitting in April. The Community Development Department will implement eTRAKiT software developed by CRW Systems, Inc., which will enable the City to streamline permit tracking while giving the public a user-friendly interface to pay for some permits online, and access other helpful project features. “We have received many requests to offer online permits through our contractors, and are pleased to be able to provide this service now,” says Gloria Hirashima, Chief Administrative Officer and Community Development Director. “We recognize that our customers want web-based services, as it represents time and money savings for all of us.” Contractors and citizens will be able to: ❑ Apply for some permits online ❑ Review projects ❑ Schedule inspections, and ❑ Conduct property searches Hirashima says the City will start small in order for staff to get familiar with the online permitting processes internally, then expand over time as permit activity picks up. Community Development last year issued 1,877 building permits, 236 single-family residential permits and 2,720 electrical permits, and performed 10,456 inspections. People can already register and pay online their City utility bills (water, sewer, garbage, etc.), fees for Parks and Recreation classes and facilities rentals through ePlay.

Planning a charity car wash? City can help! If you are planning a parking lot charity car wash, borrow a FREE Car Wash Kit from the City of Marysville. The Sudsafe kit collects the dirty water, then pumps it to the nearest sewer connection or a location that the water can infiltrate into the ground. “This is the environmentally safe way to do your own car wash fundraiser, or any car washing for that matter,” says Kari Chennault, City Surface Water Supervisor. That’s because storm drains convey water through the public storm water system to the nearest stream or lake without treatment. It is important to keep vehicle wash water from entering storm drains because detergents, oils, and heavy metals can be toxic to aquatic life. “The sewer is designed to treat dirty water, the storm drainage system is not,” Chennault says. “Using the kit helps to protect the quality of water in our community.

GENERAL NEWS Council adopts Stay Out of Drug Area downtown The City Council in February adopted new laws establishing a “Stay Out of Drug Area” downtown to deter drug-related criminal activity and impose stiffer penalties on repeat offenders, and amended existing laws aimed at reducing aggressive panhandling and lewd conduct in public places. The SODA zone and amended laws are in response to a growing perception among business owners, residents and park-goers that downtown is an unsafe place, at a time when city leaders are ramping up downtown and waterfront revitalization, Mayor Jon Nehring says. “These proactive measures are the first steps in an initiative aimed at providing a safer, cleaner and more inviting downtown, and keeping our momentum going on downtown revitalization,” Nehring says. “We want to send a clear message to residents and business owners that we getting tougher on drug trafficking and other criminal behavior in our downtown district, and it won’t be tolerated,” he said. “These new laws will give our police and judges new tools to enforce and dispense our laws to the fullest.” The SODA ordinance establishes the designation of an antidrug activity area within the downtown based on citizens and business complaints, crime data and police observations, and sets the conditions under which defendants charged or convicted on drug-related offenses in Marysville Municipal Court can be barred for two years or more from the SODA area, and subject to contact or re-arrest if they ignore the “stay out” court order, Lt. Darin Rasmussen said. The “stay out” zone encompasses 1st north to 9th Street and from Ash Avenue along I-5 east to Alder, an area that accounts for more than 20 percent of drug-related crime in Marysville, yet geographically represents only 2 percent of the city, which covers about 21 square miles, said Cmdr. Robb Lamoureux. Testimony shared at the public hearing included crime data and observed suspicious or criminal activity by police and parks personnel. The SODA area leads Marysville in a variety of tracked crimes including theft, burglary, vehicle prowls, assaults, Crime Analyst Don Castanares said. Citywide, drug-related cases increased 22 percent between 2010 and 2011, from 418 to 511, while arrests grew 36 percent from 337 to 459. At the same time, drug-related cases in the SODA zone increased 12 percent from 76 to 85, but accounted for 93 of the 459 drug-related arrests in 2011.

Amends coercive panhandling, lewd conduct laws, too

The Stay Out of Drug Area, (shown in dark), extends from 1st Avenue north to 9th downtown, and from Ash Avenue paralleling I-5 east to Alder Avenue. High drug-trafficking hot spots are Comeford Park and Beach Avenue at 2nd and 4th Sts (X).

Coercive panhandling

In related matters, Council amended the City’s existing aggressive panhandling ordinance. The law bans begging with the intent to coerce or intimidate a person into giving money or goods, and prevents interfering or blocking people on foot or in a vehicle that causes them to need to take evasive action to avoid physical contact. Police emphasized that the general act of panhandling as most drivers and pedestrians observe it is protected, constitutional free speech. When it crosses the line as outlined in the city code, that’s when it becomes a crime. Coercive solicitation is a misdemeanor that carries a fine of up to $1,000 and 90 days in jail. Lewd conduct

Council also added a new section for lewd contact to the penal code that covers public indecency, prostitution and sex crimes. An individual is guilty of the misdemeanor of lewd conduct if they intentionally perform lewd acts in a public place where their activity is visible to the public. The crime includes exposure of private parts. inappropriate touching or overt sexual acts, simulating certain of those same acts, public urination or other activities in a manner that is likely to cause reasonable affront or alarm.
