Cities, Tulalip Tribes join for economic summit BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

TULALIP — “There’s a lot of good information and good vibrations here today,” said Mel Sheldon Jr., chair of the Tulalip Tribes, to the crowd in the Tulalip Resort’s

Orca Ballroom. “The goal and desire that we all share in common is to better our communities and our county.” Those words helped open the North Snohomish County Community Partners Economic

Development Summit between the Tulalip Tribes and the cities of Marysville and Arlington on May 25, as those jurisdictions teamed up with Strategies 360 to discuss how cooperative SEE SUMMIT, PAGE 2

ARLINGTON — Jerry Mathews stood on the sidewalk of Olympic Avenue in his dress blues, waiting for the parade at 10 a.m. “I just think I’m lucky to be an American,” said Mathews, who served 42 years and three months in the U.S. Naval Reserves. “When you see the rest of the world, you realize how fortunate we are to celebrate holidays like this.” Mathews was one of hundreds of veterans and civilian community members alike who thronged Olympic Avenue for Arlington’s Memorial Day parade on May 30. He was called up to active duty for 22 months during World War II, 36 months in Korea and 15 months in Vietnam, working his way up from an enlisted sailor to a captain on board atomic submarines. “I was a high school teacher the rest of the time,” Mathews said. Mathews believes that most young people today have respect for service members, a view shared by Vietnam veteran Mike Larson, who came from Monroe to watch the Arlington Memorial Day parade. “This parade has developed a real presence in this community,” Larson said, as members of the Arlington American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars posts marched down the street. “I love that the Arlington High School Marching Band participates.

Kenneth Friske said. “It’s because of them that our lives are free.” “The courage of their sacrifices, with compassion and concern for their fellow Americans, has made America the land of the free and the home of the brave, that’s worth fighting for,” VFW Post 1561 Chaplain Keith Reyes said.

There are 49 photos there now.” Westfall explained the importance of supporting service members through job training problems in the civilian world, and of supporting their families so that

He likewise noted the Tulalip Tribes’ recent donation of $1.26 million to the Marysville School District to help offset state budget cuts. Nehring credited past leaders such as former Marysville Mayor Dennis Kendall with forging many of the partnerships that he

sees as still bearing fruit, and reiterated his pledge to help transform north Marysville into a home for manufacturing and light-industrial jobs through measures such as an over-crossing at 156th Street. “This area is a hidden jewel,” Nehring said. Larson explained that she already meets with Nehring once a month, so that they can catch up on the doings of each other’s cities. “Arlington is a full-service city,” Larson said. “Cascade Valley recently completely an $85 million expansion, and the airport draws 50,000 people to its Fly-In each year. There are 130 businesses at the airport alone. Every time I take a tour of the town, I find things that even I hadn’t known about.”

Arlington board goes back to school ARLINGTON — Arlington School Board members went “back to school” last month to see firsthand how their schools run. The Board members attended classes at Post Middle School and at the Eagle Creek and Pioneer elementary schools on May 20, during which they also took a lunch break at the Arlington High School’s student car show. According to Arlington Schools spokesperson Andrea Conley, the purpose of these classroom visits was to offer the Board members a more direct insight into how Arlington schools are differentiating their instruction for individual students, what those schools’ intervention programs look like and how those interventions are working for both teachers and students. Included in those school visits were scheduled times for Board members to meet with teachers and their principals to discuss their progress, challenges and celebrations. “It was part of the school improvement cycle we

developed,” Conley said. “It was a great time with open and honest communication. It was fun to see individual Board members interacting with students.” As Arlington schools continue to use their district’s strategic plan as a guide, individual school teams have created their own

school improvement plans, as working documents with specific student achievement goals for each year. Conley noted that keeping the Board involved in these improvement goals has been a focus of that process. “Back in March, representatives of three different schools met with Board

state assessment information for an annual data review in September, by the Teaching and Learning Department. Once the Arlington schools’ SIP teams complete their plans, the schools present these plans at an October Board meeting. The Board uses a data dashboard to monitor the progress made in the strategic and district improvement plans, as well as the individual school and department plans. “With the ultimate dis-

Vicki Miniken said. “While at the festival, be sure to browse, shop and delight at the wonderful shops around Third Street. The eateries on Third Street have become local favorites, and wide varieties of goods and services are available, including gourmet foods, gifts, home décor, antiques, furniture, books, clothing, a nursery, a floral shop, pharmaceuticals and a fitness center.” Because the show is juried, organizers ask that applicants send photos of the goods they wish to sell. All such sale items must be at least partially handcrafted and high quality, with no imported goods for resale, and no food unless it’s been previously agreed upon and properly permitted. HomeGrown is in its 26th season and is sponsored by the Downtown Marysville Merchants Association.

More than 80 booths will run down the center of Third Street from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Aug. 12 and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Aug. 13. Vendors must provide their own tables, chairs and canopies. Water and electricity are not available unless special accommodations are made in advance with HomeGrown organiz-

ers, and additional costs will apply.

trict goal of increasing student achievement, the SIP cycle process has helped keep the Board informed of the exciting successes students are experiencing,” Conley said. “Board members enjoyed their opportunity to read to individual students, help them with their assignments and see how programs like ‘The Daily Five’ help teachers manage the different needs of students in the classroom.”

Music in our schools

riticism of Marysville’s schools’ devolving music program is heating up and the tone is anything but musical. The issue is reduced access to music classes, not elimination of bands or choirs. When registering for classes, musical students are finding that they have to center their high school plan around music which raises havoc with other educational goals. Other curricular priorities are ruling out music as never before and that’s not in the best interests of children or education. There is a definite link between musical training success in math and sciences. Broadly, the arts should serve to make education more humanizing than simply qualification for the work force. Ask why some kids can’t enroll in music classes and you’ll get answers that sound reasonable so long as they don’t apply to your own kids. The basic problem is that Marysville schools have committed to at least three worthy priorities that limit access to music. The Small-School concept at MP-Getchell, expanded curriculum offerings and Running Start each serve to narrow access to music in one way or another. Given these restrictions to access, why haven’t compensating changes been proposed for the music program itself? After all, the traditional large-group approach to school music never was and never can be the best route for developing skilled musicianship. That judgment comes from three years as first-chair trumpet in a band that took all the awards in the PNW. It wasn’t Concert Band or Marching Band that made a musi-



cian of me. It was private lessons, solo work, trumpet trios, brass quintets, an extra-curricular jazz band, and the Spokane Youth Symphony. That breadth of opportunity began sixty-five years of music for me, and for that I am everlastingly grateful. My concert Band took all comers so we played music that all could handle adequately, if not well. All in all it was a good and joyful experience but it may not have been the best model for building musicianship. Traditional school bands spend too much time promoting school spirit and too little developing high levels of musicianship. They should adjust their focus toward excellence that should be expected of every curricular department. It helped me to have witnessed excellence when West Valley High hosted concerts by great musicians of the day, including Rafael Mendez and Pablo Casals. That’s like having Wynton Marsalis and Yo-Yo Ma appear at M-PHS. It happened because of a Rooseveltera nationally funded program for the arts. This is also a budgetary issue. School funding is based on FTEs, or full-time-enrollments so more kids means more money. So while class-counts might average about thirty across the curriculum, an instrumental or vocal teacher might take care of double that, in some schools dealing with as

many as ninety kids in one period. While math teachers might see 160 students per day, it’s not unusual for music teachers to have 320 students. (Note: The reality is never quite this simple.) With all the change in schoolconcept and curriculum, it might be time to take a fresh look at alternative models for school music. This could call for a determination as to whether traditional school music is actually in synch with known goals and processes of educating musicians. It might start with a survey of Marysville’s graduating musicians to find out how many carry music into their lives after graduation. If the results call for change, it would have to be in directions that avoid conflict with opposing priorities. As to scheduling, it would work around pressures that assail music now, operating flexibly in cracks and crevices of schedules and drawing private music teachers in as adjunct faculty and using school facilities for private or group instruction. Europe offers interesting examples. Or as some schools have done, use the periods spanning lunches to get a measure of scheduling flexibility not possible during the rest of the school day. A change is doable but doable isn’t necessary practical. Every idea has been tried somewhere and we’ve adopted our share of them only to find many dead on arrival. It will solve nothing to plug traditional bands and choirs into different time slots. Let them continue with business as usual. Real help for music has to spring from a different paradigm that addresses SEE MUSIC, PAGE 5

Finding the right answer for workers comp


ne of the greatest barriers to private-sector job growth in Washington has been the high cost of workers’ compensation. In January, the Department of Labor and Industries increased workers’ compensation premiums by more than 12 percent. This was after a 7.6 percent rate increase the previous year. In fact, since 2001, workers’ compensation rates have increased for employers nine times. The state-run system has been both costly and inefficient. Even after these continued rate increases, the state auditor has said there is a 95 percent chance our system will become insolvent in the next five years. That means only two options: much higher rate hikes against employers to support a failing system — or comprehensive reform of the system. At a time when profit margins are so thin and many employers are on the razor’s edge of keeping their doors open, unaffordable double-

digit workers’ compensation premiums well into the future could easily seal their doom. With nearly 229,000 people unemployed and looking for work in March, including 6,241 in the 39th District, the goal of House Republicans is to “Get Washington Working Again.” We realized that could not be accomplished without workers’ compensation reform that would lower costs for employers, provide for injured workers, and prevent insolvency. That’s why we joined a bipartisan coalition of legislators who insisted that workers’ compensation reform must be passed before the Legislature adjourned for the year.

The original legislation, Senate Bill 5566, which passed the Senate with bipartisan support, called for a voluntary lump-sum settlement option, which would have provided significant savings for the system. Labor unions, however, adamantly opposed this option, as did House Speaker Frank Chopp. It would have passed the House. However, the speaker would not allow this or similar workers’ compensation reform under House Bill 2109 to be brought to the House floor for a vote. So throughout much of the special session, negotiators from the Republican and Democratic caucuses in the House and Senate and from the governor’s office met to find common ground. Only three days before the end of the limited 30-day special session, a deal was struck and an agreement reached that was written into new legislation, House Bill 2123. Under this compromise proposal, rather than the lump-sum settlement, an injured worker

could agree to resolve a claim through negotiated “structured settlements,” meaning that the cash would be paid out over a period of time. Under this voluntary option, workers would get at least 25 percent and no more than 150 percent of the state’s average annual wage per month, or between $982 and $5,976, until the settlement is paid in full. The option is available initially to injured workers 55 years and older, then it decreases to age 53 in 2015, and finally to age 50 in 2016. The bill would also: n Offset any permanent partial disability received from the final settlement. n Incentivize return to work sooner by providing subsidies for employers to allow for light duty or transitional work options for employees. n Significantly reduce rate increases in 2012 and beyond for employers. n Provide payments for con-

true priorities and purposes for music instruction. Foremost of these is developing lifelong commitment to performing and appreciating music. There will be up-sides and down-sides to any quasicurricular music program. On the up-side, it would elevate individual achievement. A flexible program could broaden to accommodate strings, small ensembles and genres from pop to classical. It could lead to a healthy blurring of the line separating school and community music. On the downside, it would require a full-time coordinator whose responsibilities would be very like those of an athletic director. Teachers’ unions might object to private teachers or mentors supervising for-credit music programs. Keeping a flexible program vital and thriving over the years would always be a challenge. The bottom line is, music is essential to individuals’ and society’s well-being. Current restrictions on access to music in public schools simply cannot be allowed to cut-off opportunity for children to embrace music.

The importance of research It’s often far too easy to underestimate the importance of cancer research … until you hear the words “you have cancer.” Those three words can make all the difference between simply absorbing news about developments in cancer research and truly appreciating the power of what scientists like those funded by the American Cancer Society do each and every day. In June, scientists are not the only ones who will be making a difference. At this year’s Relay For Life of Arlington, residents of our community will have a oncein-a-generation opportunity to enroll in the American Cancer Society’s third Cancer Prevention Study which seeks to help us better understand the factors that

cause or prevent cancer. Individuals between the ages of 30 and 65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer and who are willing to make a long-term commitment to the study will be able to enroll at the Relay For Life of Arlington from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 4, at Arlington High School. I encourage all eligible men and women in our community to consider taking part in this important study. I also call on my fellow cancer survivors to spread the word by asking friends and family to enroll in your honor. Remember: Research being done today will help ensure future generations never have to hear those dreaded three words. Caryn Brown CPS-3 Chair Arlington

Thanks to the Arlington PD On May 24th I was out flying with a friend. We stopped, late in the afternoon, at Arlington Airport to refuel, then continued flying and eventually arrived at Boeing Field for a final fueling before heading home to Vashon Island. At Boeing Field I discovered that my bag, containing credit cards, checkbooks, driver’s license — the works — was missing. We guessed it must have been left at the self-service aviation fuel location at the Arlington Airport. It was late in the day and the Arlington Airport Management had closed. In a desperate hope of finding the lost bag, I called Seattle 911 and they patched me through to the Arlington Police. The Arlington officer on the phone was extremely helpful and said another officer would go look for

my bag and get back to me in ten minutes. In less than ten minutes I had a call from Officer Davis who had my bag in hand. He was very kind and said he would meet us at the airport as we wanted to return immediately to retrieve the bag. As I called the number he had given me just after our touchdown in Arlington, his reply was, “Is that you who just landed?” In other words he was already there and waiting for us at the time we had given him of our ETA. He was a very kind and helpful officer; truly an “Officer Of The Peace.” I’d like to thank the Arlington Police Department and especially Officer Davis for the immediate help, kindness and top notch professionalism offered me. Thank you, Felix Misch Vashon Island, WA

‘Bark for Life’ raises more than $9,000

Marysville’s Earnheart earns Zonta Club award

MARYSVILLE — Marysville resident Cheryle Earnheart was recently honored by the Zonta Club of Everett as the recipient of their 2011 Virginia Gullikson Award. The Virginia Gullikson Award is named for a Zontian and well-known Snohomish County resident who spent her life helping others. Candidates come from within Snohomish County and are volunteers who have worked to improve the legal, political, economic, educational, health and professional status of women within the county. Earnheart is best known for her involvement with the Providence Regional Medical Center. She joined the board of the General Hospital in 1993 and was a member of the team that helped lead to the merger with Providence. As president of the Providence General Children’s

who’s close to her heart. “Last year, they removed a mast cell tumor from Emerald,” said Rotunno, referring to a relatively common form of skin cancer for dogs. “Fortunately, it was all encapsulated, so they were able to cut right around it. We’re just watching for any further problems.” Emerald was one of more than 70 dogs whose owners brought them out to the Asbery Field track on May 21, for the first in what event chair Chris Ingram hopes will become an annual series of “Bark For Life” fundraisers for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life. Ingram coordinated the Bark For Life with Scrub-a-Mutt fundraiser co-founders Jennifer Ward and Elizabeth Woche, and credited them with helping her set her sights high for her own fundraising event. “My original goal was to raise $3,000, but Jennifer and Elizabeth told me that was way too low,” Ingram said. “With as much of a dog-lovers’ community as Marysville is, they said I should shoot for $10,000.

I just wanted to beat the $1,200 that Monroe raised last year,” she laughed. Ingram’s latest estimate placed the Marysville Bark For Life’s fundraising total at more than $9,000, quite a bit more than either her original goal or the Monroe total she cited. As both a dog owner and as someone whose family has been affected by cancer, she felt touched by the community’s generosity. “When my mom was dying of cancer, her dog was right by her side,” Ingram said. “The comfort that dogs can give people is priceless.” Dr. Karen Weeks, of the Frontier Village Vet Clinic in Marysville, concurred with this assessment. Although her own family has been relatively cancer-free, aside from her grandmother recovering from cancer when Weeks was a small child, Weeks supported the

Community comes together to prevent youth suicide ARLINGTON — Students, merchants and other members of the community are already contributing to an upcoming event to benefit the Youth Suicide Prevention Program. Lisa Cisneros and her cousin, Kristie Cleary, are organizing the fundraiser, which will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., on June 5, at the Sisco Heights Community Center, located at 13527 99th Ave. NE in Arlington. Cisneros’ brother Brett committed suicide at the age of 21 on July 7, 1995, which is why they started fundraising in May and will continue to do so through July of this year. “This will honor the last birthday Brett celebrated in May, and the day in July that our lives took a tragic turn,” Cisneros said. “If I’d known that Brett was only going to live three more months, I would have done anything

to make a difference, so for three months we will make a difference and make it count.” This fundraising campaign, including the June 5 event, aims to aid in sponsoring more training materials for schools and the community to help lessen the likelihood that other area families might suffer the loss of a loved one from suicide. Cisneros is a Scentsy consultant and Cleary is a Lia Sophia advisor, and from now through July, between 20 percent and 30 percent of their commissions will go toward the Youth Suicide Prevention Program, which Cisneros deemed “a great organization that focuses on our kids.” Petite Sweet Bakery of Arlington is donating fourdozen cookies to the June 5 event, while the Starbucks at the Arlington Safeway is donating two travelers of

coffee and Penway Printing in Arlington is designing a promotional flyer to display at local businesses and schools. “We still need commitments for sandwiches, as well as more coffee, cookies, desserts, appetizers, juice and soda,” Cisneros said. To tie into a recent series of youth suicide awareness forums at the Linda M. Byrnes Performing Arts Center, Cisneros and Cleary displayed two quilts in the PAC and the Arlington High School commons on May 26, which included quilt squares that memorialized youths who have committed suicide. “Maybe somebody in the community has the ability to share or donate their quilt-making skills to make a quilt honoring Arlington, Marysville, Lake Stevens and Granite Falls youths who have died by suicide,” Cisneros said. “The quilts

we have now are borrowed and need to be returned after our event. They have such an impact on young people that I feel it would be instrumental to have one available in this area, for use in schools or libraries or fairs to help stop suicide in our youth.” Jennifer Barron, deputy director of the Youth Suicide Prevention Program based in Seattle, reported that suicide is the second leading cause of death for Washington state youth aged 10-24 years old. “Two young people die by suicide every week in our state,” Barron said. “Another 20 youth make suicide attempts each week that result in hospitalization.” To learn more about the Youth Suicide Prevention Program, log onto their website at For more information on the fundraising campaign, contact Cisneros via email at

Marysville launches new website

MARYSVILLE — The city of Marysville went live with its newly redesigned website to the public on May 12. The switch from the city’s former website to a new site, designed in cooperation with government website specialists at CivicPlus, took place over the course of several days, as employees worked to finalize the transition. Visitors to the Marysville homepage should notice the dramatic new look of the site right away. In addition to its appearance, the new site offers many features designed to help visitors find the information and services they need more quickly. Information is broken down

into categories for residents, businesses and visitors. The site also includes an “I Want To” category, which provides direct links for specific information and transaction instructions. As with the prior website, residents will be able to report graffiti, potholes and other problems through online forms, but the new site also enables them to report these concerns on the go from smartphones. All that’s required is a downloadable app for iPhones, available through the iPhone store. An app for Android-powered phones will be released later this year. According to Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring, the

team redesigned the site from the citizens’ perspective. “Our website is an excellent way to build good relationships with citizens and make visitors feel welcome,” Nehring said. “The new design allows us to present information in a smart and efficient way, whether that information is departmentbased or service-based. Making information easier to find is a continuing priority as the new site evolves.” Customer service and convenience are the focus of the project, according to Doug Buell, the city’s community information officer and website manager. “This redesign has been months in the making, but

we wanted to make sure that we got it right for the benefit of our residents,” Buell said. “We chose CivicPlus from among three vendors because they were the right partner with the right design and technology base to provide the quality service our citizens deserve. Thanks to the leadership and input from the mayor, the City Council and the directors, as well as the hard work of a dozen city employees and the technical guidance offered by our partners at CivicPlus, we’ve created a powerful, user-friendly site that we can all be proud of.” Visitors will find tools to help keep them informed about city-related public meetings, programs, news and special events. For example, a new “Notify Me” option on the homepage allows visitors to sign up to receive emergency and special alerts, news flashes and calendar notifications, via email or text message. When accessed from smartphones or other mobile devices, CivicPlus websites automatically detect and display the mobile version, then fit to display on any mobile phone. City news and information also will be shared more easily with

Officials say the city of Marysville’s new website layout was designed with citizens in mind. the addition of new social media links to Facebook and Twitter to the website. The city paid $13,000 for project design and development, plus an annual $3,000 providing round-the-clock support, maintenance and hosting services, which includes a new content management system that designated departmental staff are trained to use. “CivicPlus goes beyond websites to create powerful, easy-to-use community engagement systems that connect people with government in new, more efficient ways,” said Ward

Morgan, CEO of CivicPlus. “Marysville officials have done a great job of providing a wide variety of activities and services to citizens, and the free software upgrades that come with our service will allow them to provide Marysville citizens with new applications as they become available.” The city’s old web address of is no longer in service.

Eagle sculpture lands in downtown Arlington ARLINGTON — It was completed in time for the annual Eagle Festival on Feb. 5, but it took the city of Arlington a while to find a fitting home for the giant eagle, with its wings raised high. On May 18 at 1 p.m., the city installed the 10-foot-tall chainsaw-carved cedar sculpture by Debbie Anderson on the medians of Division Street, between West Avenue and Broadway. Anderson worked over the winter holidays on the sculpture to ensure that it was finished in time for her to donate it to the city during this year’s Eagle Festival, on behalf of the Country Chainsaw Carvers. Although Anderson only started carving with a chainsaw slightly more than two years ago, she’s made it her mission to turn chainsaw carving into a community event for Arlington several times each year, and has attracted fellow carvers from throughout the Pacific Northwest to her home town to take part in those events. Like many chainsaw carvers, Anderson chose cedar for her sculpture not only because it’s a softer wood, but also because it contains a natural preservative. Before painting the sculpture, she burned its surface with a blowtorch to bring out the sculpture’s details and the highlights of the wood grain, as well as to seal out insects.

ecent guidelines released by the American College of Physicians suggest that the first steps toward managing back pain should be conservative ones. The guidelines recommend an X-ray, CT scan, or MRI only for those patients with new back pain that might be due to a spinal tumor or infection, major traumatic injury, a severe osteoporosis-related fracture, or a rare condition (cauda equina syndrome) that causes nerve damage. Otherwise, the vast majority of pain sufferers are advised to wait at least a month to see if their pain goes away before undergoing an imaging test. This recommendation is in line with non-surgical chiropractic philosophy that views chiropractic care as a cautious first-line treatment for back pain. If you suffer from back pain, why not give chiropractic a try? At ARLINGTON FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC, we believe each person has the right to become as healthy as he or she chooses. We recommend a continuing schedule of regular chiropractic checkups, which can help detect, correct, and maintain optimum spinal and nervous system function.

Eagles lose two games at state tournament BY SCOTT FRANK

Making it’s first state appearance since 1997, the Arlington High School girls softball team went 0-2 but first-year head coach Lonnie Hicks still considers this a very successful season for his team. Playing at Dwight Merkel Sports Complex in Spokane, the Eagles were defeated in their first game 6-3 by Tahoma, and then lost to Emerald Ridge, 2-1. “In the first game we started out really strong. We punched a couple of runs in and it was a battle until about the fourth inning when we were still ahead 2-1,” said Hicks. “Unfortunately we had a fly ball that was dropped with two outs. That opened up the gates where they got more hits and we found ourselves down 6-2.” Hicks said that at the state tournament the level of play is such that teams can’t afford to make even small mistakes. “All 16 of the teams there were top-notch teams and the one thing you can’t have

is a mistake,” said Hicks. “And we did. It’s just one of those unfortunate things.” Hicks said the excitement of playing in the state tournament may have affected his players, especially when it came to hitting, where Hicks said they just weren’t able to get the key hits when they needed them. “I think the kids were just so excited to be there I don’t think we were able to maintain our composure as well as we had hoped,” Hicks said. “The kids were just a little bit anxious and we did a lot of hitting off our front foot and pulling outside pitches which we don’t normally do. We just weren’t able to settle down and let the game come to us.” Despite losing 2-1, Hicks said the second game went much better for his team. “Defensively we played really sound,” Hick said. “We gave up a home run in the first inning but overall the girls played really well.” Hicks said. “We had a couple of opportunities to tie it up but just weren’t able to come up with the key hit.” “All of the girls played

well,” said Hicks, “especially Lyndsay Tuner who played third base and made some absolutely outstanding plays throughout both games.” Hicks said he was extremely proud of his team which attained its goal of making it to state. “They had set a goal to make it to state and they certainly accomplished that,” said Hicks. “And they didn’t do it in an easy fashion. They had to work very hard to get here, and they did.” He added, “I’m very proud of this team and I’m very happy for the seniors for making it to state, and we’re going to miss them a lot.” The seniors on the team included Kalie Basher, Linzey Burns, Torrey Harrington and Lyndsay Turner. Although the seniors will be missed next year, Hicks said he is looking forward to having a large number of returning players. “We have both of our starting pitchers coming back next year,” Hicks said. “We have 12 returners so

Highland Christian returns to state


Making its second trip to the 1B state tournament in as many years, the Highland Christian girls softball team was unable to secure a win, losing both of its games in Yakima. In the first round, Highland Christian fell to Almira/Coulee-Hartline 35-7. In the consolation bracket, Highland Christian fell to Wishkah Valley 10-5. First-year head coach Louie Quesnell said the team faced a number of challenges, including having a minimum number of players. “We only brought nine girls to state and some of the girls had to play out of position,” said Quesnell. “It was a challenge but the girls handled it well.” Highland faced a very strong opponent in the first round, which prompted Highland to switch pitchers. “In the first game we started our eighth-grade pitcher, Kaylee Bartley,” said Quesnell. “Looking at their record, they went 22-1 dur-

ing the regular season. We thought we would have a better chance in the second game with our junior pitcher, Esther Brown, on the mound.” Despite the final score, Quesnell said there were some bright spots in the first game. “Brown went 2-for-4 with two runs and Amy Zimmerman went 2-for3 and scored a run,” said Quesnell. “Brown also received the sportsmanship medal for our team in the first game.” The coach said that after the first game the team sat down to refocus. “We were ready to play the second game knowing that everyone would be in the positions that they had played all season,” said Quesnell. “Zimmerman had a really good tournament. In the second game she went 2-3, scored two runs and had an RBI. She also received the sportsmanship medal for the second game.” Quesnell said the biggest problem his team faced was errors, which he attributed

the youth and inexperience of his team. “We only had four returning players from last year, and six others with little or no experience,” said the coach. “We only had one senior, Milita Hansen.” With only losing one senior and one other player who will be transferring, Quesnell said the team should be even better next year. “We’ll have eight returning players and four will be seniors,” said Quesnell. “I think next year will be our best chance at state.” The team included Jackie Burns, junior; Toni Forbis, junior; Esther Brown, junior, Alecia Baughman, junior; Brooke Hernandez, freshman; Rachel Wixon, freshman; Amy Zim, sophomore; McKenzie Enge, sophomore; Kaylee Bartley, freshman; and Milita Hansen, senior. “I really appreciate the hard work and effort the girls put in this year,” said Quesnell. “Going to state again next year will be one of our goals that we’ll be setting for ourselves.”

Arlington youth basketball schedules camps for June

Powder Puff football raises funds for youth teams MARYSVILLE — Marysville and Lakewood moms are going head-tohead to help their kids stay in the game. The Mar ysville “Tomamamas” and the Lakewood “Cougar Mamas” are already gearing up for a Powder Puff football game on June 17, starting at 7 p.m. at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, to raise funds for the Marysville Youth Football League and the Lakewood Youth Football Athletic Association. “The economy hasn’t been improving, and the simple truth is that some families are having to choose between extracurricular activities versus basic necessities like groceries, gas and medical care,” said Dawn Taylor, a spokesperson for the event. “We hope this can bring our two communities together for a great event that families can attend without spending a ton of money, but which will benefit so many others.” Ticket prices are running $5 per person and $10 per

family, and Taylor encouraged would-be attendees to avoid ticket lines by buying their tickets in advance from any of the two schools’ coaches or players. Event organizers are also raising money by selling ad space in the game program that will be handed out free to all attendees. Businesses may purchase advertising in 1.25-inch by 2-inch minimum blocks. The first block is $50, and each additional block is $25. “Attendance at the 2010 Powder Puff football game between Lakewood moms and Arlington moms exceeded 1,500 people,” Taylor said. “Attendance at this year’s game is anticipated to be even higher.” Taylor added that all proceeds will go toward the MYFL and LYFAA, “so that all kids have a chance to play.” For more information, contact Taylor by phone at 206-245-1701 or via email at

Pleasing your spouse requires that you first learn what pleases your spouse, is it any different with God? Sometimes the things we do “for God” are really just things we do because we enjoy them, like the fellow who got his wife a new fishing pole for her birthday when what she really wanted was jewelry.
