District, teachers agree on contract BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — One day after a majority of the Marysville Education Association’s members agreed to its terms, the Marysville School District Board of Directors unanimously voted to approve the MEA contract for the 2011-12 school year, thereby ensuring that Marysville’s school year would start on Sept. 6. MEA President Arden Watson and MSD Superintendent Dr. Larry Nyland both described their respective organizations’ biggest challenges in coming to an agree-

MARYSVILLE — Minutes after its official ribbon-cutting ceremony, area youths were already making themselves at home in the Marysville YMCA’s new Youth Development Center. The 3,400-square-foot building that once served as the home for the Marysville Community Food Bank now houses program space for the “ACT!” — “Actively Changing Together” — youth obesity program and the “Exercise and Thrive” cancer survivorship program, but on Aug. 31, it was the Youth Development Center’s computer lab and teen recreation features that attracted the most attention from its young patrons. While 12-year-old middle school students Lauren Edgar and Lily Fleshman

played foosball hockey and table tennis in turns, 16-yearold Marysville Getchell High School students Mark Guba and Stan Kolomeyetz faced off across the pool table. Meanwhile, 16-yearold Navdeep Manhas and 13-year-old Kona Blanchard were among the first to take advantage of the Internetready computers. “I’ve been coming to the Marysville Y for the past 10 years,” Manhas said. “I like hanging out with my friends here. The new computers and ping-pong table seem pretty nice.” Blanchard, who was invited to speak to the crowd that had assembled for the ribbon-cutting, recalled how his own family first started using the Marysville Y more than six years ago. “All those classes have



ment as stemming from tough economic times and recent actions by the state Legislature, the latter including a 1.9 percent reduction in state funding for teacher salaries. “The Legislature declined to reduce the school year or make a state-wide decision,” Nyland said. “Therefore, 296 districts across the state have had to negotiate separately with each bargaining unit how each district would address the legislative budget cuts.” At the Aug. 31 Marysville SEE CONTRACT, PAGE 2

The Y is even more awesome than before.” The adults who showed up to speak that day seemed equally impressed by the facility. Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring noted the number of young people in attendance, in addition to the adults, and touted their presence as a positive sign for the mission of the Youth Development Center. “I go to a lot of ribboncuttings where I see mostly adults, and that’s okay, but this is about the kids,” Nehring said. “It’s good to see so many of you here.” Nehring expressed the hope that the Youth Development Center’s computer lab would help unlock area youths’ achievements

as adults, with its projectbased learning programs to increase computer literacy and soft job skills in areas ranging from publishing Web pages to recording and producing music and videos. “When we stand united to invest in our youth, we create a well-trained work force for local jobs,” Nehring said. “We’re empowering these young people to become the community leaders of the next generation.” Scott Washburn, president and CEO of the YMCA of Snohomish County, pointed out that the Y is “more than just swims and gyms,” and held up the Marysville Y in particular as an example of the diverse services and activities that the YMCA can provide its young patrons. “This YMCA has the largest Minority Achievers Program in the state, and hosts one of the largest youth breakdancing contests on the West Coast,” Washburn said. “It’s a resource for our youth that nurtures their

Roon laughed. “I can’t escape the Jubies.” Turning serious, Roon asked the Jubie brothers to stand so that the young people in attendance could see them. “When you grow up, I hope you can follow their example, and be as generous with your time and treasures as they’ve been with theirs.” “I remember sitting around a ping-pong table in 1991 with a vision of building a YMCA facility,” Muller said. “We were told we’d have to raise a million bucks to do it, which was even more money back then. They said Marysville couldn’t do that. I’m really proud of the community that I live in and the way that it’s stepped up.”

School Board meeting during which the contract was approved, Nyland noted the dozens of meetings between the district and the MEA over the summer. He touted the good working relationship between the two groups, whom he described as both striving to “make the best out of a not-good situation.” Watson reported that the MEA voted to ratify the contract by a majority of 93 percent on Aug. 30, with measures such as furlough times for teachers that she described as unprecedented. She echoed Nyland’s assurances that the contract nonetheless maintains 1,000 of instruction time for students. “Collective bargaining has allowed us to work for what’s best for the kids at the classroom level,” Watson said. Marysville teachers will be subjected to increases in classroom overloads without increases in previous compensation, as well as an 0.9 percent reduction in pay, as much as $650 for some teachers. Four of the teachers’ seven furlough days for the school year will be scheduled in conjunction with holidays such as Thanksgiving, winter break, Presidents’ Day weekend and Memorial Day weekend. The first of the other three furlough days is scheduled for Oct. 14.

Arden Watson MEA President “During those days our staff can express their concerns to the Legislature,” Nyland said. “In response to concerns we’ve heard about our early release days, we’re moving them from Fridays to Wednesdays and we’re shortening the early releases from 150 minutes to 90 minutes. Not only does this provide more instructional time, including a.m. and p.m. kindergarten, but it also encourages students to get lunch at school, which they might have chosen to skip if they were leaving sooner.” Although school lunch prices are not part of the MEA contract, Nyland addressed them on Aug. 31 by explaining that state budget cuts also impacted the cost of school lunches. As such, meal prices will increase for the first time in three years, by 25 cents per meal, while milk prices will stay the same. Chartwells, the food service provider for Marysville, agreed to a $100,000 reduction in their management fee to ensure the continuation of school lunches on a break-even basis.

Local events commemorate 9/11

Marysville firefighters, Arlington remembers police honor the fallen with several activities

MARYSVILLE — Marysville firefighters and police officers will be honoring the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, as well as the loss of one of their own, on Sept. 11 of this year. On Sept. 11, 2001, not only were thousands of lives lost in the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and Flight 93, including those of 343 New York firefighters and 72 law enforcement officers, but the Marysville Fire District also lost Lt. Jeff Thornton, who passed away that same day after his battle with cancer. Members of the Marysville Fire District’s Honor Guard will conduct a ceremony at the Police and Firefighters Memorial outside of the Marysville Public Library, located at 6120 Grove St., starting at 8:30 a.m. This event has taken place every year since 2001.

“This annual ceremony helps us all remember and pay tribute to those who died, as we also remember the loss of one of our own on that very same day.”

Chief Greg Corn, Marysville Fire District This year’s program will build on those past ceremonies, with activities set to include an invocation, an address from Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring, the ringing of the bell in honor of those whose lives were lost, and doves being released to music. “This annual ceremony helps us all remember and pay tribute to those who died, as we also remember the loss of one of our own on that very same day,” Marysville Fire Chief Greg Corn said. “As we look back on the events that took place 10 years ago, we have a

responsibility to those who gave their lives and those who continue to fight and sacrifice for our freedom and security. Marysville is a community that will never forget.” Also on Sept. 11, Marysville Fire District Capt. Keith Taylor will be singing the national anthem at Safeco Field for the Mariners game. A special tribute to Thornton is likewise set to kick off at 3 p.m. that day at Husky Ball Park, on Montlake Boulevard just north of the Hec Edmundson Pavilion & Intramural Center.

Local businesses offer events to remember 9/11 BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

SMOKEY POINT — In addition to their own respective commemorations, the Arlington and Marysville communities will be coming together during the week of Sept. 11 to honor the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Weller Funeral Home in Arlington and SchaeferShipman Funeral Home in Marysville will both be showing free pre-theatrical screenings of “Rebirth,” a 104-minute-long documentary film that follows the progress of five families impacted by 9/11 over the course of the past decade. Weller will be showing “Rebirth on Sept. 10 at 3 p.m. and Sept. 11 at 1 p.m., while Schaefer-Shipman will be showing the film on Sept. 8 at 10 a.m., Sept. 9 at 7 p.m., Sept. 10 at noon and Sept. 11 at 3 p.m. “This film shows how this tragedy changed the lives of both the survivors and

the families of those who experienced it,” said Mary Jane Harmon, a spokesperson for both funeral homes. “It includes the cleanup, the rebuilding and the memorial to the fallen.” Harmon explained that Weller and SchaeferShipman are both part of the Dignity Memorial network, which dealt with the filmmakers, and that this is how the two funeral homes are able to show this film before it’s released in theaters. “We’ll have an online guestbook for people to write to the 9/11 families,” Harmon said. “Arlington’s police chief might also be attending, but we can’t confirm which day yet.” Weller Funeral Home is located at 327 N. Macleod Ave. in Arlington. You can call them at 360-435-2509 or log onto their website at Schaefer-Shipman Funeral Home is located at 804 State Ave. in Marysville. You can call them at 360-659-3711

or log onto their website at Sept. 11 will also mark the start of what organizers hope will be an annual “9/11 Patriot Ride” from Sound Harley-Davidson in Smokey Point, supported by the Puget Sound Chapter of the Harley Owners Group. Participants are asked to arrive between 9:15-9:45 a.m. to sign the mandatory waiver to take part in the ride, which will depart from Sound Harley at 10 a.m. and is expected to last two and a half hours. The route winds through Lake Stevens, Snohomish, Clearview and Everett, with a rest stop at the halfway point, before returning to Sound Harley for a barbecue. Although there is no registration fee, participants are asked to email Ron Wagner at rwagnerpshog@gmail. com to put their names on the list. Those with questions should email Evan Adolf at


ARLINGTON — Those who plan on visiting downtown Arlington during the weekend of Sept. 10-11 should wear their walking shoes, since both days will be packed with activities for pedestrians, including commemorations of the 9/11 attacks 10 years ago. The Arlington Arts Council will be conducting “Art in the Park” in Legion Park from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both Saturday, Sept. 10, and Sunday, Sept. 11. “A special celebration of the arts kicks off at noon on Saturday, when the Arts Council honors the public art contributions for the year,” said city of Arlington Recreation Coordinator Sarah Lopez. Paul Nyenhuis, Greg Parke and Stan Shipley will provide music for the two-day event, which also promises to include food vendors and raffle prizes, while Baker Photographics have pledged to donate 10 percent of their sales toward the 9/11 memorial in Arlington. Sept. 10 will also feature a used book sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. across from the Arlington Library at 135 N .Washington Ave., as well as the return of the Arlington Farmers Market to the city parking lot, next to Legion Park on Olympic Avenue, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 11 will see Macleod Avenue closed from First through Third streets from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., in order to accommodate the Arlington Fire Department’s rededication of Firehouse 46, located at 137 N.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Inquiring minds ask Gary and Donna Wright, Marysville business owners and Donna as a Marysville City Councilmember, are frequently asked if Mayor Jon Nehring’s campaign opponent is related to us. The answer is no. We are not related to Mayor Nehring’s opponent. Nor have we ever met that opponent. We wholeheartedly support Mayor Jon Nehring’s re-election. The Mayor has served the citizens of Marysville with great competence and integrity as a city councilman and has displayed excellent leadership skills and wisdom as mayor. Our entire family in Marysville, including Ted and Michele Wright, are proud to be among Mayor Nehring’s many enthusiastic supporters. Gary and Donna Wright Marysville

Wright is best person for mayor As a former business owner and involved resident of Marysville for a very long time, I am always concerned about the goings on with our city government. With the upcoming election for Mayor, I was delighted to meet Kelly Wright when he came to our door in mid-August. He began with

asking me what I thought was the good and bad of Marysville, then impressed me with his ideas and opinions. It was also a very educational meeting for me. With his deep understanding of a city’s infrastructure, I believe he would be a refreshing change to our local government and fully endorse his candidacy. I encourage voters to check this candidate out. I think you will agree he is the best person for the job. JoAnn DeLazzari Marysville

Support the Chargers As homeowners in Marysville for 11 years we were very proud to have our daughter attend the new Marysville Getchell high last year. District-wide budget cuts had placed the sports program opening at Getchell in jeopardy. After hard budget reconfigurations by the board and tremendous support by parents and the community, the Getchell Chargers will begin on track this season. I think its very important that we turn out in person at the games this season to show our continuing support for all their hard work. SEE LETTERS, PAGE 5

Litter on a stick

efore every election, strips of land like the one between the BNSF tracks and Old Highway 99 are thoroughly decorated with signs. It’s a mess that must cause members of Marysville’s Arts Commission to tear their hair. Either Marysville’s City Code is a little murky on the posting of political signs or the city hasn’t found it practical to enforce or strengthen it. Whatever, the result amounts to a civic eyesore. A few provisions of city code touch the issue. Public nuisances are treated in Chapter 6.24.050. Abandoned signs and free-standing litter-on-a-stick signs are defined in Chapter 22A.020.070. Temporary signs are theoretically governed by Chapter 22C.160.080(7b). Election litter is usually defined as signs placed on public, government-owned property or on privately owned property without the owner’s permission. Though sometimes banned by local governments, political signs remain as pervasive as crabgrass. Where signs are permitted, they are generally regulated as to size, allowable time for posting and mandatory time for removal. Some argue that the wholesale posting of political signs is protected as free speech. That notion took a hit in 1984 when the United States Supreme Court held that political propaganda on public property was not entitled to protection under the First



Amendment and that the states may enact and enforce laws to criminalize this “visual assault on the citizens.” That’s rather strong language. The city of Raleigh, N.C. came down on political signs from another angle. The city won a court ruling that said, “... no empirical studies are necessary for reasonable people to conclude that billboards (including political signs) pose a traffic hazard, since by their very nature they are designed to distract drivers from maintaining their view of the road.” The worst aspect of political signs is that they really work without giving voters anything of substance., a web vendor of political signs said, “Political signs are a common sight through the year during upcoming elections. These great yard signs you see across town everyday help put your name out there for potential voters to see. The best part about these amazing plastic yard signs is that they really do work! Think about it, with so many people driving, walking or jogging in their everyday life they are bound to notice the campaign lawn signs, especially if the colors and the

messages stand out.” The fact that roadside signs do influence elections through nothing more than name-recognition should be reason enough to question their use. Simple namerecognition has nothing to say about a candidate’s qualifications. In fact, plastering roadsides with candidates’ names has accounted for placing quite a number of dodos, axe-grinders and nincompoops in public office. Papering the landscape with name-bearing signs has proven to be the cheapest way to get elected. offers 100 12x12 signs for $65. Think bigger and you can get 100 16x24 signs for $1.55 each. Of course that’s for only one color of ink. Speedy Signs USA sells 100 12x18 signs for only $99.00. At that rate a couple hundred dollars worth of signs would saturate every arterial in Marysville. But to do the job right you’ll need to pay more for multi-hued glitzy eye-catchers. Even then they’re a bargain. Overkill application of flashy signs can elect anyone, even animals. Aided by road signs, Molly the Dog from Oklahoma was named a candidate in the U.S. presidential election. Morris, a cat, ran as a candidate in the U.S. presidential election in 1988. In our state, Boston Curtis, a brown mule, was offered as a candidate for a Republican precinct seat in Milton, Wash., winning 52 to zero. One perpetrator of an elecSEE LITTER, PAGE 5

People of all abilities are better together

ur organization and many others like it were founded originally because people with disabilities needed us. But along the way, we discovered something as amazing as it is self-evident once you think about it — that is, people of all abilities need each other and are better together. In those early days, the main focus of was to promote the basic civil rights, independence and inherent value of people with developmental conditions. A major victory of that time was the passage of H.B. 90, the bill that mandates equal educational opportunity for all children regardless of ability in the state of Washington. From the perspective of the fathers and mothers and brothers and sisters of children with developmental conditions, it was only natural that they should be welcomed into the world. They were such important parts of the family, why wouldn’t they

GUEST OPINION TOM EVERILL PRESIDENT & CEO OF NORTHWEST CENTER be embraced as full members of society with the potential not only to learn and grow, but to produce and contribute and engage fully in the life of the community? This rich potential can be seen in something as fundamental as two children playing together. We’ve seen again and again at our inclusive preschools how children of all abilities — those with developmental conditions and those without — can grow, flourish, teach and influence each other, and simply immerse themselves in the joy of having fun with another human being. That same potential plays out over and over in the workplace. When employers embrace diversity, they invite new perspectives that evoke the

LITTER FROM PAGE 4 tion hoax famously said, “Never underestimate the gullibility or ignorance of the American voter.” Steven Colbert of Comedy Central highlighted the name-recognition flaw by endorsing a non-existent candidate, Rick Parry (not the Rick Perry of Texas). By keeping the Rick Parry name — not qualifications — in front of his audiences the bogus candidate’s run gained traction. Name recognition should not be allowed to count for as much as it does. If it were to come down to one source, opinions gained from candidates’ profiles in voters’ pamphlets would serve us much better. Yet it is the annual deluge of name-bearing signs that seems to tip the balance in favor of whoever is blessed with a comfortable-sounding name, comes up with an eye-catching sign design and buries the opposition with sheer quantity of signs. No doubt about it, candidates who have to depend on political signs to maximize name-recognition cheapen and pervert the electoral process. It is good that Washington State is relatively free of the other wonderfully sleazy tactics that tainted elections in Illinois, Kentucky, Texas, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Wisconsin and Florida but we can still clean up our act by re-thinking sign ordinances. Tighter control of electioneering signs would go a long way toward assuring us of a better grade of office holders. This is necessary. Given the state of our society and economy we can’t afford to be so sloppy in how we choose candidates. Comments may be addressed to robertgraef@comcast. net.

best qualities of everyone involved. The benefits of employment to the person with a disability are well understood and obvious: a sense of purpose, the satisfactions of a job well done, a measure of independence, the pride of earning your own pay, a sense of belonging, and so on. But it is the benefit to everyone else in the workforce that surprises many with its profound power. Our organization works with employers throughout the Pacific Northwest to create inclusive working environments where people of all abilities work together side by side. One of those employers is a senior executive with a major retailing chain with more than 250 stores in the United States and Canada. “I can’t get over it,” he tells me all the time. “In

every store where we hire people from your employment agency, in-store sales improve, productivity improves, morale improves, and absenteeism goes down. What’s going on here?” What’s going on here is that we are better together. When people of all abilities work together, they make each other stronger. When we add diversity to our surroundings, when we begin to develop relationships with people who experience the world differently than we do, new qualities are evoked that would never have been realized in any other way. It really is alchemy, which the dictionary defines as “a power or process of transforming something common into something special.” Think about the magic of ordinary water, a parallel I’ve

As ecologist Joanna Macy points out about oxygen and hydrogen, “One could never have anticipated the properties that emerge when these elements interact.” The whole is so much more than the sum of its parts. People of all abilities are like oxygen and hydrogen. When we stay separated, when we have relationships only with people like ourselves, we get more of the same. When we engage in diversity, we literally get the very stuff of life.

Marysville Getchell falls to Lindbergh BY ADAM McFADDEN

Adam McFadden/Staff Photo

Marysville Getchell quarterback Dylan Diedrich looks downfield for an open receiver during the Chargers’ 40-0 loss to Lindbergh Sept. 1.

RENTON — Lindbergh welcomed Marysville Getchell to the world of varsity football by beating the Chargers 40-0, Sept. 1, at Renton Memorial Stadium. “I think we made a lot of mistakes but I think we also learned from those mistakes,” said Marysville Getchell coach Davis Lura. “The score didn’t turn out the way we wanted to, but we stayed positive.” The Chargers, playing the first football game in school history, struggled offensively in the first half and came up with just one first down. “In the first half we were not quite synching together,” Lura said. “I think it just took us a little while to settle down.” Lindbergh took a 7-0 lead on the final play of the first quarter when Daniel Wiitanen broke loose from a pack of tacklers and scrambled 61 yards for a score. The Eagles struck with three more scores in the second quarter and entered the half with a 27-0 lead. While the score doesn’t show it,

the Chargers made some positive plays on defense. Kaleb Seymer stopped Lindbergh’s Cam Callen on the two-yard line on a fourth and goal, and Chase Kyzar recovered a fumble in the end zone to shut down another Lindbergh scoring threat. Marysville Getchell also made adjustments at the half and improved offensively in the third quarter and marched on a couple of sustained drives. “Those were big for us,” Lura said. “Just being able to come into a game and having to change things quickly, for us to do that was huge.” Even while showing improvement later in the game, the Eagle defense overwhelmed the Chargers for the most part. The Chargers threw five interceptions and lost a fumble, three of which were returned for touchdowns by Lindbergh. But Marysville Getchell didn’t get down mentally. “They didn’t hang their heads,” Lura said. “They stayed positive, even after the game.” Lindbergh coach Pat O’Grady came away impressed with the way the Chargers held up against stiff

competition - Lindbergh has been to state three years straight and is a favorite in the Seamount League again. “They played us really hard and kept it a game for quite a while,” O’Grady said. “They’ve got a good foundation built there and they’ll do well.” O’Grady also sympathized with some of the Chargers’ difficulties starting from scratch. “I know the struggles that we have and we’re an established program,” O’Grady said. “Their coaching staff over there they’re starting from ground zero. While that’s got to be exciting, you know there’s going to be some growing pains along the way.” The score may not have exactly as the team wanted, Lura said the most important thing is that the Chargers continued to play hard. “I was confident our kids would play hard, and that’s the only thing that was important,” he said. “Obviously as a coach you want to win a ball game, but to me it’s more meaningful that the kids play hard and lose than win and not play hard.”

Arlington rolls over Mariner 42-12 BY TRAVIS SHERER

ARLINGTON — Perhaps the only disappointment the Eagles faced Sept. 2 was that they didn’t get the chance to play against possibly the state’s best running back, KeiVarae Russell. But then again, it’s hard to find a letdown in a 42-12 drubbing of Mariner in a non-conference contest on opening night. “I was really proud of our guys,” said Arlington head coach Greg Dailer. “We had some misreads, wrong routes and some dropped passes, but I liked the way we overcame them.” Any mishaps the Eagles had in the first half could be chalked up to opening night jitters, and were probably well forgotten less than 10 minutes into the contest, as the Eagles owned a 21-0 lead. Senior quarterback Blake McPherson took advantage of an undersized Marauder secondary, completing 8 of 16 pass attempts for 186 yards and three scores in the first quarter.

“Our receivers are some of the best athletes in the state,” said McPherson. “I feel like I can just throw it up there and they’ll come down with it.” Arlington scored on touchdown receptions from Skylor Elgarico (82 yards), Terry Dawn (11 yards) and Colton Hordyk (15 yards). And while the Eagles were lighting up the scoreboard, the Marauders had a difficult time moving the chains without their workhorse. “Fantastic effort for our defense,” said Dailer. “You hate to see any athlete not be able to play, but especially one like KeiVarae Russell. It’s a little disappointing, for them as well as for us when you get a chance to go against somebody like that, you get excited because you want to see how you measure up.” In the absence of Russell, who suffered a minor concussion earlier in the week, Arlington’s defensive line disrupted the Mariner’s touted offensive line, with senior Dylan Worley lead-

ing the way with four of his seven tackles resulting in a loss, including a sack. “I wasn’t surprised,” said Worley about not allowing a single point in the first half. “I think our defense is the best in the state and I think if KeiVarae were here, we could have shut them out too.” Arlington limited Mariner to just 27 yards in the first half — piling up five tackles for losses, a pair of threeand-outs and a Elgarico interception — while amassing 334 yards and a 42-0 lead behind three rushing touchdowns by Hordyk, who also finished with 100 yards on the ground. McPherson finished the day going 11-for20 for 222 yards. The Eagles were able to let their underclassmen play much of the second half, while Mariner scored a pair of TDs to avoid putting up a zero in a game that pitted favorites of the Western Conference’s North and South divisions. Arlington travels to Everett Memorial to face Jackson Sept. 9.

Parents, kids encouraged to ‘ACT!’ up BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

As far as Ronda Hardcastle is concerned, the key to getting kids fitter is ensuring that their parents are actively involved as well. Hardcastle serves as the health and well-being director for the Marysville YMCA and is looking forward to the start of “ACT!” — “Actively Changing Together” — this month at YMCAs throughout Snohomish County. The 12-week ACT! program for children and teens starts Sept. 12 at the Marysville Y and offers nutrition and exercise guidelines that the whole family can put into practice and, according to Hardcastle, its success depends on the whole family — parents and kids alike — taking part in the program. “Parents are an integral part of this program,” Hardcastle said. “We’re not just running the kids through this. Fitness begins at home. If you don’t include the parents, then you can teach the kids about healthy living and eating until you’re blue in the face, but they’re not the ones who are going to be doing most of the cooking in the house. We need to reinforce the support system for these lessons at home.” To that end, not only does ACT! provide translators for Spanish-speaking parents, but each session will also include discussion periods, with the instructors and within the groups themselves, that will require program participants to be actively engaged in learning the lessons and contributing their own experiences. “We want them to develop a camaraderie,” Hardcastle said. “Of course we’ll be going over information about carbohydrates, fats and the food pyramid, as well as how they put together their own menus, but they actually have to do that as homework, and then come back and tell us how

it went.” While parents and kids will share exercise and discussion periods as part of ACT!, the parents will also be given their own separate exercise and discussion periods, as will their kids, so that they can exchange ideas among their peers. “The most important thing about the program is that you have to be willing to try things out and put forth the effort,” Hardcastle said. “You won’t gain any benefits from it if you just sit through it. You’ve got to be willing to get down and dirty.” ACT! is for children aged

8-11 and teens aged 12-14 who are referred by a health care provider and have a BMI equal to or greater than the 85th percentile. Each weekly 90-minute session is completely free to those who qualify, thanks to the YMCA’s “Invest in Youth” funds. “This is one of the programs that we pound on doors to get donations for,” Hardcastle said. A nutritionist and physical activity coach will lead each session of ACT!, whose games and activities to build cardiovascular health, strength and flexibility will include fitness stations,

September 7, 2011


obstacle courses, swimming and dance. Participants will also fix light meals for themselves at each session, with guidance. Referral forms for ACT! can be found online at, and should be printed off and submitted to your health care provider. ACT! is presented in partnership with the Seattle Children’s Hospital, the Everett Clinic and Providence Physicians Group. The Marysville YMCA is located at 6420 60th Dr. NE. You can call Hardcastle at 360-653-9622 for more information.

DABA donates clock in downtown Arlington BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

ARLINGTON — Sept. 10 will see the Downtown Arlington Business Association dedicating the completion of a project that’s been one of their goals for years. “Mary Green, a local business owner and longtime Arlington resident, had the dream of the downtown businesses purchasing a town clock,” DABA President Debora Nelson said. “The thought has been there for many, many years. A fund was started in 2009 and slowly crept up to $700 through donations.”

Nelson credited the proceeds from different DABAhosted events throughout the years, including the annual Show ‘N Shine Car Show, with allowing herself, DABA Treasurer Julie Tate, Secretary Debbie Whitis and Vice President Morgan Macauley to move to purchase the clock and have it installed on Olympic Avenue. “The City Council accepted this gift at their Aug. 1 meeting,” Nelson said. “DABA organized and covered the cost of the installation of the clock with the help of project manager Terry Marsh, [city Recreation Coordinator] Sarah Lopez, Cuz Concrete and Donnelson Electric.

The guys who helped to lift this hefty clock are retired Arlington Fire Chief Jim Rankin, Jay Downing, and David and Justin Klein.” The clock is installed near the downtown Arlington parking lot and its ribboncutting ceremony will commence at 11 a.m. on Sept. 10. It was purchased from East Bay Clock Company and stands 12 feet tall. It’s made of heavy cast iron, with gold trim and an unbreakable face. Nelson described its style as complementary to historic downtown Arlington, and estimated that the cost of its purchase and installation adds up to an approximately $9,000 investment in the city.

Summer readers get to keep books from Marysville Library BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Library’s summer reading program for this year wrapped up in a grand fashion for 10-year-old Luis Lopez. Lopez, who went back to school at Cascade Elementary on Sept. 6, received a cookie “the size of his head” and a life-sized poster of him holding his favorite book on Aug. 20 from Kathy Smargiassi, the children’s librarian at the Marysville Library. Smargiassi explained that Lopez first read 10 books, which automatically won him a free book of his own, then read at least another 10 to enter to win the drawing. Lopez’s favorite books are the “Guardians of Ga’Hoole” series by Kathryn Lasky. Smargiassi congratulated all the summer reading program participants for doing their part to prevent “the dreaded summer learning loss.” “Sno-Isle Libraries has a fun summer reading program every year to encourage children to read,” Smargiassi said. “This summer they had a theme of ‘One World, Many

Stories,’ because every time you open up a book, you enter a new world.” Every child who signed up for the summer reading program was issued his or her own “passport” with which to keep track of their reading. Once a child had read 10 books, they were allowed to pick out a book of their own to keep. Those children who continued to read were allowed to place an entry for the Marysville Library’s branch prize for every 10 additional books that they read. “Yes, Luis read more than 20 books this summer to win his prize,” Smargiassi said. “One girl read more than 200 books. Another girl was going through the summer activities suggested in the passport and wrote a postcard to the librarians saying, ‘I hope everyone in the library, especially the librarians, has an amazingley awesome summer. P.S. I think that’s how you spell amazingley.’” The Marysville Library’s kid-centric programs, to encourage children to visit them during the summer months, included information on Egyptian mummies and how to play games from

Quil Ceda 360-716-2940 I-5 Exit 200 Marysville

around the world, as well as visits from a live llama and a juggling magician. Smargiassi touted the value of these attractions in maintaining the youngsters’ reading levels. “Contrary to popular opinion, including many educators’, most students, even those ‘at-risk,’ make decent progress in their reading abilities during the school year,” Smargiassi said. “It’s summer when they fall behind. Children who read over the summer either stay the same or get better with their reading ability. Children who don’t read over the summer lose a lot of what they learned during school and have to relearn it again in the fall.” Smargiassi cited a threemonth achievement gap, each year, between the summer readers and the nonsummer readers, which she noted adds up a year and a half of lost reading development time between the first and sixth grades. “Summer reading programs such as the one at the Marysville Library are an efficient, fun way to incorporate reading and reading-related activities into summer family time,” said Smargiassi.

Stilly Senior Center honors Duane Weston


SMOKEY POINT — Duane Weston has volunteered countless hours of community service over the course of several decades in Arlington, and for his efforts he’ll be receiving the Stillaguamish Senior Center’s Lifetime Achievement Award. The sixth annual award breakfast will take place at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 14, at the Stilly Senior Center, located at 19308 Smokey Point Blvd. According to Weston, he’s not much for the limelight. “I just see a need of interest and fill it,” said Weston, who retired as the chief forester and president of Pilchuck Tree Farm in 2001, but still maintains a parttime position as director of external affairs, dealing with recreational users. Weston’s volunteer activities have included leadership

of the Arlington Volunteer Search and Rescue from 1968-1971. The organization had 31 missions in 1971 alone. He also served the Arlington Methodist Church as representative to its Boy Scout troop and Explorer Search and Rescue post. After the Arlington United Methodist Church merged with the Arlington United Church of Christ to become the Arlington United Church, Weston continued to serve the church in a number of positions, including moderator, finance chair and church trustee. Weston’s Scouting activities have included stints as committee chair of Troop 86 in Stanwood and Scoutmaster of Arlington’s Troop 29 in 1983. He earned the Tyee District Award of Merit and the Silver Beaver Awards for his volunteer efforts, which also included

forestry advice at the Boy Scout camp and a number of years on the council board. In the fall of 1980, Weston became one of the founders of the Arlington Community Food Bank. He went on to serve on its board for 29 years, including a run as its president from 1996-2010. Among the activities in which Weston is still involved are the Snohomishto-Arlington Trail Coalition and the Washington Forest Protection Association. He recently retired from the board of the Snohomish Conservation District, where he had served as chair the past few years. He still serves on the Stillaguamish Watershed Council and works on behalf of the recovery of the Chinook salmon in the Stillaguamish River. He’s also served on the forestland committee for Snohomish County’s

CT Board selects hybrid service alternative

SNOHOMISH COUNTY — In 2012, Community Transit’s commuter service will maintain much of its current routing with fewer trips, while local service will be restructured to serve higher ridership corridors. On Sept. 1, the agency’s Board of Directors voted 6-3 to approve a plan to cut Community Transit bus service 20 percent effective Feb. 20, 2012. After a summer-long public comment process that included reviews of four proposed service plans, the board chose the socalled Hybrid Alternative, which combines the commuter routing proposed in Alternative I with the local routing of Alternative III, with some modifications. The board did not restore service on Sundays or major holidays. Snohomish County Councilmember Dave Gossett, Lynnwood Councilmember Ted Hikel, Mountlake Terrace Mayor Jerry Smith, Snohomish County Councilmember Dave Somers, Mill Creek Mayor Mike Todd and Stanwood Mayor Dianne White voted in favor of the plan. It was opposed by Mukilteo Mayor Joe

Marine, Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring and Gold Bar City Councilmember Steve Slawson. Descriptions of the plan are available on the agency’s website, and the agency’s blog, This fall, Community Transit will develop maps and schedules for each of the routes and will launch a public education effort early in 2012. While no specific trip times are available yet, what is known is there will be fewer trips on almost every route, bus frequency will be decreased and the buses will end service between 10 and 11 p.m. on weekdays. Currently the last weekday route finishes at about 1 a.m. “It’s never easy to cut service because of the impacts on so many lives,” Gossett said. “We listened to the public’s input on this issue, and that guided our decision.” The board looked at four alternatives — three that were presented to the public in June, and the Hybrid Alternative that was developed at the board’s direction after the initial public comment period on the original three alternatives closed in mid-July.

With the decision, Community Transit will cut about 20 percent of its service starting Feb. 20, 2012. The agency will save about $12 million with the service reductions. The number of jobs that will be eliminated has yet to be determined. The service cuts are necessary because Community Transit’s sales tax revenue has fallen by more than 20 percent from the level it received in 2007, the last pre-recession year. Meanwhile, operating expenses such as fuel, supplies and labor costs have continued rise. Community Transit is responsible for providing transportation options for Snohomish County residents, including bus and paratransit service, vanpool and ridesharing options. Call Community Transit at 425-353-7433 or 800-562-1375 for bus information, or 888-814-1300 for carpool or vanpool information, or go to You can also read our blog at, visit our Facebook page or see us on YouTube.

Growth Management Plan. His previous awards have included Forester of the Year in 1973 from the Puget Sound Section Society of American Foresters, Washington State Tree Farmer of the Year in 1992 from the American Tree Farm System and the Zalesky Lifetime Achievement Award in Forestry from the Cascade Land Conservancy in 2007. Weston was born in Spokane in 1938 and grew up on a farm just outside the city. He graduated from Spokane’s North Central High School in 1957, after spending much his of time exploring and pioneering in the surrounding wooded and open areas. After graduation, he worked summers for the U.S. Forest Service in Idaho and enrolled at the University of Washington, where he graduated in 1962 with a forestry degree. Duane Weston met his future wife, Anna Marie Hall, while attending college, and they married in 1963, after he’d completed six months active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps and accepted a job as a forester

NOTICE Washington State law requires wood sellers to provide an invoice (receipt) that shows the s e l l e r ’s a n d b u y e r ’s name and address and the date delivered. The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the seller’s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord. Estimate a c o r d by v i s u a l i z i n g a four-foot by eight-foot space filled with wood to a height of four feet.
