ARLINGTON — The first day of school is enough to make any kid a bit nervous, even if she’s a veteran of first days of school like Kent Prairie Elementary fourthgrader Makenzie Leathers. “I’m kinda scared,” Makenzie said, shrugging her shoulders. “Isn’t the teacher your best friend’s mom, though?” asked Makenzie’s mom, Heidi Clark, whose son Joseph starts his junior year at Arlington High School this year. As Makenzie bid farewell to her parents, Heidi Clark and Jason Leathers, on Sept. 7 for the first day of the 2011-12 school year in the Arlington School District, dad Jason laughed as he admitted to looking forward to more free time, while mom Heidi noted that her volunteer work at the school

will mean that she’ll still see her kids, and plenty of others, during the day. “It’s always an exciting feeling,” Heidi said. “I look forward to them growing up into little people.” Fellow Kent Prairie student Jessica Henry claimed not to be nervous at all as she started her first day of first grade. “I’m excited to see my friends,” Jessica said, as mom Cathy and sister Brenna helped her get settled into her classroom. Brenna started fourth grade at Kent Prairie this year and is looking forward to reading and math. “I’d glad to get back into a routine,” Cathy said, before laughing, “No more summer.” “It’s such a milestone,” said fellow Kent Prairie mom Dinnette Jeffrey, as she SEE SCHOOLS, PAGE 2

ARLINGTON —The Sarvey Wildlife Care Center is hoping to bring its facilities into the 21st century, but it needs the community’s help to do it. “Before 1994, we didn’t have any educational facilities,” said Tammie Rohr, administrative director for Sarvey. “Our educational animals were sharing space with our rehabilitation animals, which wasn’t ideal. Thanks to a donation from the Chris Smith family, which was matched by Microsoft, we were able to make our non-releasable birds visible to the public.” While this represented a step up for

Sarvey, they’ve struggled ever since with the fact that the educational facilities’ hallways and animal display enclosures are so small that they can only accommodate as many as 10 people at a time for viewings. “The typical Washington weather has also taken its toll,” said Rohr, who explained that Sarvey has already secured wildlife trust fund dollars to start construction this past winter on an “educational meadow,” which will allow groups of 20 or more visitors at a time to check out the animals. “The roofs of the new structures won’t be solid coverings, so plants will SEE SARVEY, PAGE 2

unpacked daughter Lily’s backpack in the same firstgrade classroom. “No more every-other-day stuff. This summer Lily learned to swim and ride her bike without training wheels, so she’s had a lot of firsts lately.” At Pioneer Elementary, it was James Lyons’ second time giving away one of his kids to the kindergarten teacher, this time daughter Savannah. “It’s different with a baby girl,” James said. Ella Andreyanov just started kindergarten at Pioneer, but she’s already growing up a bit too quickly for mom Zhanna’s comfort. “She can’t wait until she’s big enough to ride the bus by herself,” Zhanna said. “Other kids cry on the first day, but she’s so independent. Her father and I realized a year ago that she’d be starting kindergarten this year. We were

shocked by how much the time is flying by.” Pioneer Elementary Principal Karl Olson credited his school staff with spending so much time on planning and preparation that the morning went off like clockwork. “This first week is when it all comes together,” Olson said. “We have a great team of teachers that’s able to work out the kinks in each year’s schedules, because they’ve done it for so many years.” Although Olson emphasized the importance of learning, he also spoke to this year’s crop of kindergarten parents to reassure them that their children’s well-being was paramount. “We want to send these kids home smiling, so that they’ll want to come back the next day,” Olson said. “We want to put the parents’ minds at ease, so they’ll know this is a safe place and their kids will be happy here.”

SARVEY FROM PAGE 1 be able to grow inside them with natural light,” Rohr said. “We also have a local Boy Scout who’s going to be helping build amphitheater seating for an educational pavilion at that site.” The four animal enclosures that have already been built cost approximately $8,000 each, and Rohr estimated that the total cost of the educational meadow would be about $118,000 simply to install all the structures, before any other educational materials are purchased. “This is part of a multi-step plan,” Rohr said. “Our clinic for treating sick, injured and orphaned animals has also outlived its usefulness, but we need to empty out the current educational facilities before we can replace the clinic.” To that end, Sarvey is inviting the community to attend a fundraiser for these

facilities at Craven Farms in Snohomish on Sept. 18 from 4-7 p.m. Tickets for this “Whiskey Barbecue” are only $50 each and are available by contacting Sarvey by phone at 360-435-4817 or via email at margie@sarveywildlife.org. Included in the ticket price are hors d’oeuvres, two drink tickets and a barbecue dinner. Additional drink tickets will be available for purchase. “Think what a difference you can make in our animals’ lives by helping to provide our resident animals with improved housing in a more natural setting,” Rohr said. “Not only will you be creating an environment our education animals can call ‘home,’ but you’ll be opening other enclosures within our facility to help rehabilitate releasable patients that come to Sarvey.” Donations will also be accepted. For more information, visit Sarvey’s website at www.sarveywildlife.org or on Facebook, or email tammie@ sarveywildlife.org.

AHS students present ‘The Fantasticks’

BY CAROLINE RENSEL Contributing Writer

ARLINGTON — On a cloudy day in August a handful of high school students were making Arlington history — they were rehearsing a musical. This September “The Fantasticks” will be brought to life in the Linda M. Byrnes Performing Arts Center as the first entirely student directed and produced main stage show ever attempted at the high school. “The Fantasticks” will delight audiences with familiar songs and a familiar subject, love. Follow the young hero and heroine, Matt and Luisa, as they fall madly in and out of love. This quintessential coming of age story combines enchanting music, witty dialogue and deeper questions about the nature of our relationships with one another; a combination that leaves us both charmed and thoughtful. As the longest-running show in Broadway history, “The Fantasticks” is no small undertaking, but Arlington High School seniors Nathan Haskew and Nathan Braaten are more than ready to tackle the challenge. Both veterans of the AHS drama department stage, Haskew and Braaten share the responsibility for the success of the production and served as the director and musical director, respectively. But these aren’t the only roles that are traditionally held by adults. Tasks such as costumer, prop coordinator and makeup artist are being undertaken by other regulars of the AHS stage. Seniors Lexi Lewis and Makayla Markenzinis, like Haskew and Braaten, will be getting senior culminating project credit for their participation in putting together these technical aspects of the show. To meet the requirements of the senior project, students must participate in a new experience. Thus, these students are all taking on jobs in the theatre they’ve never tried before. “Acting in a show is in some ways much easier than directing one,” said Haskew. “I’ve really gained an appreciation for how much work it takes backstage and behind the scenes, it looks easy, but it’s not.” There is no denying that putting on a musical is hard work. But things get extra complicated when rehearsals, which began as soon as school ended for the year, have to be worked around family vacations, summer

camps, doctor appointments and the work schedules of the eight actors in this comparatively small cast. “It’s been a test of our improvisational skills as directors,” laughed Braaten. “Especially since this is an intimate show, without any fancy sets to hide behind. The focus is completely on our actors and its success depends on their abilities. But they have more than risen to the challenge. think our audience is going to see not only the talent of this cast, but also their passion and drive.” “This show is simply special,” said Miller. “It’s entertaining, thought provoking, and a brilliant piece of American theatre, but there’s more to it than that. I’ve acted in six other shows here at AHS and I think “The Fantasticks” is going to be memorable because we are setting such an important precedent. Being trusted to do this ourselves is more than an incredible chance to learn, it’s preparing those of us who want to go into theatre seriously to pursue our dreams.” It’s been a dream six years

in the making for AHS drama teacher Scott Moberly. “The ultimate success for any teacher is watching one’s students rise to the challenge of producing their own work and demonstrating that they are ready for independence. I’ve wanted to do student-run productions since I began teaching at AHS, and I feel this is the right time and the right group of kids to really show our community what they can do.” The curtain goes up at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 23 and 24 and Moberly is looking forward to being in the audience. “The support this community shows our drama students is phenomenal. I’m confident that they will come through again this year and help us celebrate just how fantastic our students really are by coming to see this musical.” Tickets are $5 and all seats are first come, first served and there will be no advanced ticket sales. Caroline Rensel graduated from AHS last year and is a freshman at Whitman College.

Fixing state budget woes requires paradigm shift

A

ll eyes of state government will be fixated on the Guest state’s economic and revopinion enue forecast when it is Rep. Dan released Thursday, Sept. Kristiansen 15. This forecast not only predicts the direction of Washington’s economy by using complicated formulas and indicators, but it also projects incoming revenue to the state based upon the economy and consumer spending. The state budget is built using those revenue projections. When the Legislature adjourned in late May after a regular session and a special session that finally produced a $32.2 billion operating budget, it left only $723 million in reserves (money unspent in the state’s savings account). When the budget was being written, many of us said this measly 2 percent reserve would not be sufficient to buffer against further dips in the economy. Plus, it demonstrated the Legislature’s failure once again to control its overspending habits. On June 16, just one day after Gov. Chris Gregoire signed the 2011-13 budget into law, the state revenue forecast was released. The result was a $560 million projected drop in reserves, leaving only $163 million in the state’s savings account for the next two years. Here’s where some may argue the state doesn’t have enough revenue and should raise taxes to collect more money. As I’ve said before, the state doesn’t have a revenue problem. It has a spending problem. Even with the revenue decline, the state is still expected to collect $3.5 billion more in the next two years than in the previous biennium. Unfortunately, rather than making reforms that would prioritize spending and set aside that additional money, the Legislature went about “business as usual,” appropriating this huge increase for spending in the 2011-13 budget. So again, overspending trumped reforms, leaving a meager 0.5 percent in reserves. Common sense says it’s unlikely such little savings would be enough to protect the state against another lower revenue forecast. So in August, Gregoire called on state agencies to submit contingency proposals by Sept. 22 for cuts of between 5 percent and 10 percent. If the Sept. 15 forecast is down as many expect, the governor has two choices: across-the-board cuts or calling the Legislature into a special session to create prescriptive reductions that would balance the state budget. How the Legislature responds if it returns in special session will be very important. Here’s why. If lawmakers merely patch the hole and hope the economy will get better before the 2012 session in January, they will be fooling themselves and doing no one a favor. Under current conditions, state economist Arun Raha See SHIFT, PAGE 5

City prepares 2012 budget

he city budget planning process is well underway for the coming fiscal year, as departments carefully review service levels and assess cost efficiencies for the City Council to consider in adoption of a 2012 balanced budget. Thorough and systematic review of the budget by the Mayor, Chief Administrative Officer and department heads is an early step in a planning process to align priorities with community needs. Our scrutiny of all expenses and financial oversight throughout the year are key to providing a base of knowledge for the annual budget process. I encourage your involvement in this year’s budget process and welcome your meaningful input at public meetings in October and

Guest Opinion Jon NehrinG Marysville Mayor

November; citizen participation is essential to maintaining public transparency in this process. Now that you have a better sense of what’s ahead in the coming few months, it’s a good time reflect back on how the city has fared since a year ago when we took decisive action to reform the way government in Marysville conducts the public’s financial business. We prepared the 2011 budget with the priority of looking beyond 2011 and creating financial stabil-

ity for the long term by reducing expenditures, replenishing depleted reserves, paying off city debt more aggressively to ease our debt burden and boost our creditworthiness, and ensuring all funds are solvent and healthy. We applied the same approach that many struggling families and businesses are doing in their own homes and businesses today: be realistic about what we can afford, focus funding on our core priorities, and save for tomorrow’s needs. Our nation and region have struggled under the financial pressures of an anemic economy, and fears of another recession linger. Marysville has fared better than many jurisdictions. That remains See NEHRING, PAGE 5

Opportunities for leadership Y ou’ve read many opinion pieces from the current mayor since he was appointed to office last year, so I welcome this opportunity from The Marysville Globe to discuss the issues. My family and I love living in Marysville. Our city provides bountiful recreational opportunities, a wealth of shopping and entertainment choices, and other amenities typically found in a larger city. As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, Marysville faces significant challenges. There are many opportunities for Marysville’s leadership to do better. Working with local governments all over the world, including Iraq and Afghanistan, has taught me the vital importance of infrastructure.

Guest Opinion

Kelly wright Mayoral Candidate

Traffic must move freely. Access to major highways is crucial to economic development, the responsiveness of emergency services and our overall quality of life. Traffic in Marysville is severely impacted by growth, with wait times at train crossings already exceeding 20 minutes in some cases. With our city and our region expected to experience continued growth, this situation will only get worse as the amount of train traffic in Marysville increases.

Marysville’s traffic problems need more than study; they need action. Overpasses that don’t connect to I-5 won’t help most commuters. The big traffic project for this year, what one city spokesperson called “our big bang,” is a new overpass at 156th Street. We don’t know the final cost of the project. What we do know is that it provides an additional route into the Lakewood Triangle big-box retail center. It does not connect to I-5. That might be helpful for weekend shopping, but it does nothing for the daily commute, nor does it alleviate traffic problems for Marysville’s downtown merchants. Railroad traffic is part of everyday life in Marysville. City leadSee WRIGHT, PAGE 5

WRIGHT FROM PAGE 4 ship recently relied on an expensive consulting firm to study train impacts from a proposed coal terminal north of Bellingham. We certainly didn’t need a consulting firm to tell us more train traffic will have severe negative impacts on local commutes. A more practical approach is to adequately prepare by lobbying state and federal governments for funds to build overpasses that connect to I-5. Doing so is vital for free-flowing traffic, our quality of life, and the profitability of our businesses. Global experience has also

NEHRING FROM PAGE 4 true today because of the disciplined spending philosophy of “living within our means” that has served us well in 2011, and will carry us through 2012 and beyond. The 2011 budget was not without some painful decisions and shared sacrifices, but it was decisive action that has kept the city on the right financial track — delaying or passing on budget problems only makes them worse. We faced a 2010 revenue shortfall that forced immediate budget cuts. City departments reduced operating expen-

SHIFT FROM PAGE 4 doesn’t expect the economy will get better anytime soon. So we would be back in the same rut in January, but likely deeper. The problem with patchwork is that it doesn’t address the root causes of our state’s budget crisis — namely overspending, consumer insecurity, and the lack of jobs in Washington. The Legislature needs a significant paradigm shift in its thinking. Lawmakers can no longer afford to preserve non-essential wanted programs that are a drag on the budget at the expense of essential needs like education, public safety and protection of the state’s most vulnerable population. When the economy took a nose dive in 2008, employers had to change the way they do business to stay afloat, and families had to set spending priorities by funding only their “needs” and setting aside their “wants.” Unfortunately, state government has been reluctant to do the same. That must change. The Legislature must also focus on the most effective way to stimulate revenues, improve the economy, and restore consumer confidence – and that is the creation of private-sector jobs.

taught me value of transparency in local government. While the city has heavily publicized some successes, other developments are slipped through with a minimum of public attention. Last April, the city passed a rule exempting bigbox retailers from paying traffic impact fees. This give away was just what Wal-Mart needed to revive plans for a new super-store at 64th and SR-9. Most Marysville residents think this project is dead and will be surprised to learn construction of the new Wal-Mart will begin in the next few months. Much of Marysville’s recent growth came through annexation. I’ve spoken with people in

the annexed area who didn’t get a voice in the decision to become part of Marysville. In my view, citizens must be consulted before they are subjected to an expanded government. No vote was taken when a series of annexations were forced through in recent years. Those annexations deeply affected people’s lives and livelihood, including one farmer I met who told me his surface water management fees (what farmers call the “rain tax”) went from $122 a year prior to annexation to more than $1,800 a year after annexation. Nothing changed for this farmer except the tax increase — and it may be enough to force him out of

ditures and we reduced the employee workforce by 10 percent from 2010 through layoffs and removal of vacant positions. Among other steps, we began to replenish reserves as we plan for continued fiscal uncertainty in the overall economy. Reserves are on track to exceed our goal of 6.5 percent by the end of this year, with the objective to further increase those levels in the future to provide financial security and stability for the city. Re-establishment of adequate reserve levels, adequate funds for facility maintenance, and reestablishment of a vehicle replacement fund will pro-

vide stability for continuing the provision of core services within the city. Finally, as part of our budget reforms, we took a hard look at the inventory of city-owned properties to explore revenue-generating opportunities including pursuing potential leases and selling off unused or nolonger-needed properties. Two examples stand out: Cedarcrest Golf Course now has a successful restaurant — Bleachers at Cedarcrest — that is now paying monthly rent to the city instead of the city being in the business itself. Second, we aggressively sought a company to purchase the city-owned former

I’ve written at length about our job-creation solutions, which you can view on our House Republican website at http://houserepublicans.wa.gov/our-solutions/ economy/. I also believe we must take a Hippocratic oath-like approach to our economy, which is “do no harm.” That means: extending the governor’s state agency moratorium on non-critical rulemaking, which is set to expire in December; avoiding tax increases which could send our state spiraling into a second recession; and reducing costs to employers so they have the resources to create jobs. However, the final and most important component must come from our business community. We need to hear from you. What can we do in the Legislature to make it

easier for you to create jobs? What do you think would be the most effective approach toward improving our state’s economy? Our best solutions come not from within the marbled walls of the state Capitol building, but from those who live and work throughout Washington.

business. Forcing through annexations without a vote is wrong and goes against my philosophy of government. We must do better when it comes to fiscal responsibility and governmental transparency. For instance, Marysville purchased the old Coca-Cola bottling plant with nearly $3.8 million of city funds. Then the city commissioned a study and determined the property was not needed after all. Now the city has sold the main part of the property for $2.3 million — much less than the original purchase price. Campaign seasons come and go, and politicians make prom-

Coca Cola plant property after re-evaluating the need to immediately expand City Public Works yard facilities. Effective government entails monitoring current circumstances and re-evaluating priorities based on those assessments. Instead of a Public Works facility relocation and expansion, the city will welcome Parr Lumber Company into the community. The sale recaptures the city’s purchase price for the building, reduces our overall debt, and leaves the city with adequate land to accomplish future long term needs. Parr Lumber is a Northwest family-owned company with a strong sense of community. The

ises during each election cycle. I would like to see Marysville move beyond easy rhetoric and the feelgood ribbon cuttings and award ceremonies that make for good photos but provide little in the way of true leadership. Doing better, making a real difference in our city’s quality of life, requires hard work. It’s work that is well worth the effort. Let’s work together to make Marysville an even better place to live.

jobs they will generate in the community and the tax revenues they will generate through their retail and wholesale operations could not come at a better time. Financial projections to date appear to support the budget reductions taken over the past year. Here in city government, we are living within our means. We focus on meeting the priorities of our citizens with the resources that we have. While there have been some program cuts, our employees have shown a commitment to delivering customer service and maximizing government resources. We anticipate the same cautious, conserva-

tive approach for the 2012 budget which will allow us to continue to provide core services at current resource levels. Through our actions, I believe we will emerge from the current difficult times stronger and more financially secure. In the meantime, we will continue fighting crime, improving neighborhoods, growing our economy, planning for the future and saving money; and we will continue reforming and streamlining the way we do business.

be used to help cover the Theatre’s costs of bringing personal safety performances to elementary schools throughout the Arlington, Lakewood, Marysville and other Snohomish County school districts this coming year. ODT has not hosted a garage sale since the 1980s, when it was founded, but tough economic times have reduced the number and value of available grants from government and private foundations, along with individual donations. School and district budgets that have long supported the personal safety performances have also decreased along with the economy, but the ODT Board of Directors believes that supporting data indicates the need remains strong to teach important safety skills to children, so they’re rolling up their sleeves, creatively, to raise money for safety. Open Door Theatre’s mission is to free children from abuse and violence by teaching personal safety skills using live dramatic theatre. A team of professional actors interacts with students in grade levels between kindergarten and fifth grade, as these children learn assertive skills that can be used in bullying situations on the playground or to keep themselves safe if confronted with someone who wants to touch them inappropriately. Teachers, counselors and principals are on hand during the lively, one-hour performances that are designed to be both empowering and age-appropriate. On Sept. 17, the ODT Board, staff and cast members will be on hand to chat with customers hunting for garage sale bargains. Open Door Theatre welcomes the public to donate items for the sale as well. Donations can be dropped off the day of the sale as early as 7 a.m., while shoppers are welcome from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Please call 425-303-8783 by noon on Thursday, Sept. 15, if you have any questions or if you would like to donate items to be sold. If you cannot attend the garage sale but want to support Open Door Theatre, you may donate your time to support future fundraising events or mail your tax-deductible donation to Open Door Theatre at 135 S. French Ave., Arlington, WA 98223. This financial support will be used to fund this season’s performances.

Day of Service returns Sept. 17 BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

MARYSVILLE — Last year, close to 250 volunteers spruced up Jennings Park as part of the National Day of Service and Remembrance. This year’s Day of Service for Marysville will take place on Sept. 17 at the Doleshel Tree Farm Park, located at 9002 67th Ave. NE. Christina Foley, media relations specialist for the Marysville Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day

Saints, explained that the church is sponsoring the project, which starts at 9 a.m. She asked that volunteers show up at 8:45 a.m. for sign-in registration and to pose for a group photo, and added that Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring plans to attend. “The objective of the project is to clear the property of vegetation and trees to initiate a passive park and community garden center,” Foley said. “It’s quite the big project and undertaking, but the end product will be so worth it.”

The day’s tasks are set to include the removal and replacement of the metal fence, preparation work and painting of the Doleshel barn, and cutting down trees that the city of Marysville will have marked ahead of time, while thinning out branches all around to create visibility from the street for the police. “Branches and limbs will be sent through the chipper on site to create bark for the pathways,” Foley said. “An Eagle Scout project will also be taking place there, to remove and replace the deteriorating foot bridge.”

Eagles volleyball falls in season opener BY TRAVIS SHERER sports@marysvilleglobe.com

ARLINGTON — Eagle volleyball fans saw glimpses of what would make for an exciting season during Arlington’s season opener against Everett. But there weren’t enough of those moments to overcome the Seagulls in a 3-2 (25-21, 16-25, 25-14, 18-25, 7-5) non-conference loss at home Sept. 8. “I think it came down to not adjusting,” said Arlington coach Melissa Thompson. “They started tipping more (in game four) and we didn’t adjust to that.” Everett won the final two games, taking advantage of a young Arlington team that was slow to implement a change in strategy. And just before game four, the Eagles looked unbeatable with a frontline that dominated the Seagulls’ defense en route to a 25-14 win and a 2-1 match lead. “What you saw there was our hitters making the most out our

consistent passing all night,” Thompson said. “It all clicked there and that is a great example that we can look at this season and see what we’re capable of when our hitters transition early — that’s one of our goals this season.” Leading all hitters was one of the two freshmen that started the match for the Eagles, Audrey Frolich. Arlington’s attack centered around the freshman, who shined in the first game. Frolich’s three kills in four straight points sparked an Arlington comeback from an 18-13 defect. The Eagles didn’t take their first lead in the opening game until the score was 22-21, when Frolich closed out the game by serving four consecutive points — the final two came by way of the ace. She finished with a team-high 15 kills and three aces. “For a freshman, Audrey’s very composed and confident — both of our freshmen starters are,” said Thompson. “And I think you have to give the entire team credit

for that because they have been extremely supportive in helping them get comfortable at this level.” Arlington also started freshman Kate Anderson. Megan Abdo finished with 38 assists and Lexi Sarver had eight kills and two aces. Thompson said she saw a standout performance from libero Maya Manzano. “She was like a rock back there for us,” Thompson said. “Her serve-receive is so impressive.” Overall, Thompson said she was impressed by what she saw in her team. “We stayed composed and consistent with our passing, which are two goals we have for this season, and that’s good for a young team that hadn’t played together on the same team before,” she said. Junior hitter Loretta Forrest had a game high 17 kills. Arlington plays at Cascade Sept. 22.

Getchell battles to a tie on the pitch BY TRAVIS SHERER sports@marysvilleglobe.com

EDMONDS — Not many programs can say that they’ve never lost. Marysville Getchell’s girls soccer club could after opening its inaugural campaign with a 1-1 draw against Mountlake Terrace at Edmonds Stadium Sept. 6. “We’re pretty excited about this team,” said Charger manager Wayne Nash. “We’re young and inexperienced, but you can see that they are all ready to go out there and compete.” The Chargers did just that with a serendipitous opening to the match. In just the 12th minute, sophomore Kelsee Crenshaw outpaced the Hawks’ back line to a through ball that she put by the Terrace keeper from less than 10 yards out to become the first scorer in Chargers’ history. “Kelsee is a very talented player,” said Nash. “We were just able to break through early in the game and get that lead.” But an advantage in the score didn’t end up translating to one on the pitch, as the Chargers found themselves too comfortable with the lead. “I think we let up after that

first goal,” said Nash. “The girls were pretty nervous going into the game and then all of the sudden, they said to themselves, ‘We got one.’ And then started to relax.’” Terrace took advantage of a resting Getchell attack, owning possession for the remainder of the first half, during which they got the equalizer in the 32nd minute on a strike from Erin Russell. Although the second half didn’t see any scoring, that doesn’t mean there wasn’t a large number of opportunities for both teams. Free kicks just outside the penalty area and breakaways were frequent but without consequence. For Getchell, that was mostly because of junior keeper Samantha Wallace. “She pretty much kept us in the game,” said Nash about his goalie. Wallace recorded 11 saves — four of the diving variety — and made sure her defenders were in the right areas. Getchell played the second half with the same intensity of the first and was easily the winner in time of possession. The match went to overtime with neither team scoring while both teams had a flurry of oppor-

tunities in the 10 extra minutes. With just one senior on the roster, Nash said he was quite confident in his team’s future, and its effort against Mountlake

Terrace did nothing but support that feeling. “(The Hawks) didn’t graduate anybody, so that’s a pretty seasoned team that we just competed

with,” he said. “I was pleased with the way our forwards worked together tonight, playing off each other. That is a good sign for this year.”

EXPERT ADVICE

Are you an Expert in your field? Would you like to share your knowledge with others? Call the Marysville Globe / Arlington Times at 360-659-1300 today, ask for TERI and you could be one of our EXPERTS!

TAX SERVICES Q: My 18 year old son is attending college this year and working part time to help pay for some of his expenses. Will my wife and I still be able to claim him as a dependent on our tax return this year since we are providing most of his support? This will be his first year filing a tax return.

Jill Czadek Enrolled Agent

A: If your son is not providing more than half of his own support and the other qualifications for dependency are met, then you will continue to claim him as a dependent as long as he is considered a full time student, until he reaches the age of 24. Your son may be filing a tax return to receive a refund, or perhaps to pay tax. Be sure that he does not claim his own dependency when filing his return. For more information on student dependents, or if you have additional questions, please call our office.

SENIOR LIVING Q: All my life I’ve been on the go. I’m ready to let go of the lawn care and the Jennifer Dennis cooking but I refuse to be bored! What can Executive Director Grandview Village offer? Please don’t say “bingo”. A:

This all comes back to the question – what do you want to do? With a variety of activities, events and outings, there are many choices. One of the great things about meeting new Residents is the experiences, adventures and ideas they bring with them to Grandview Village! Monthly parties, lunch outings, educational seminars, shopping opportunities, church services, WII games, spa outings, yard sales, jewelry shows … the list goes on. That’s just September! Stop by and see what our active Elders are up to. We will warn you … they may ask you to join in the Bingo game. Give us a call!

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. Most long bed pickup trucks have beds that are close to the four-foot by 8-foot dimension.
