Dwoskin advocates for fellow people with disabilities BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

MARYSVILLE — At the age of 20, Preston Dwoskin has already accomplished a host of goals on a statewide scale, while also living with hearing and developmental disabilities, and even as his hearing continues to go down from its current level of 67 percent, he’s setting his bar of accomplishment ever higher. Dwoskin has visited Preston Dwoskin Olympia as part of the Arc of Snohomish County’s leadership development program and spoken to the media about how the governor’s proposed

Students learn culinary arts, work skills BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

MARYSVILLE — The dishes are freshly prepared, the prices are low and the staff at this restaurant loves clocking in for their shifts. They love what they do so much, in fact, that they don’t even get paid. The meals cost so little because they’re only covering the overhead of buying the food. But then, the students who work at the School House Cafe on the Totem Middle School campus find their jobs rewarding in other

ways. “I want to be a chef when I grow up,” said Jordan Anderson, a senior at the School for the Entrepreneur, on the Marysville Getchell High School campus, who’s been honing his craft at the School House Cafe for the past three years. “It’s an art form. There’s so much you can do with it.” Fellow SFE senior Josh Ferguson has only been working in the School House Cafe for the past year, the same amount of time he’s been working at the

Golden Corral restaurant in town, but he shares Anderson’s enthusiasm for cooking wholeheartedly. As the two donned their white chefs’ coats in the kitchen for the School House Cafe’s first day of serving customers in the New Year, on Thursday, Jan. 5, former Seattle chef Jeff Delma was there to guide them, as he’s been doing for the restaurant’s student staff for the past five years. “Each class gets better by the end of the semester, which is the

CAFE FROM PAGE 1 end of this month for us,” Delma said. “Our class sizes stay pretty consistent, more or less, but we’re a lot busier than we were this time last year. I honestly don’t know why we have so many more customers now.” The roughly 50 students in both of Delma’s classes are divided up into morning food preparation and midday restaurant operation shifts, and while Delma might not know for sure why they seem to have drawn larger crowds over the past year, he noted that regular patrons have favorite orders. “Everybody loves our rolls,” Delma said. “We make them fresh from scratch every day. The fish and chips are always popular, but a new menu item this year is the spicy lobster sandwich, which has sold like crazy. It’s been a big hit.” “You can just taste the difference in food that’s made from scratch versus food that’s been pre-made,” Anderson said. “It’s like the difference between food that’s been homemade and food that comes frozen.” “I like the taste of fresh food rather than fast food,” Ferguson said. Delma laughed as he acknowledged that taste-testing the food is one of his students’ favorite activities in the restaurant’s kitchen, but he encourages them to sample their own wares, to make sure they’re serving meals that they’d want to eat themselves. Besides, it helps them get through the occasional drudgery of the rest of their chores, since, as Delma soon impresses upon his students, “They’ll clean 10 times more than they cook,” even with a rotating selection of specials on the menu. “It’s fun working with these kids,” Delma said, before chuckling, “They can drive you crazy sometimes, but their enthusiasm for it

makes it nice.” While Delma has had students from the School House Cafe go on to pursue the culinary arts after graduation, he’s less concerned with turning them into expert chefs than he is with teaching them a simple, diligent work ethic that they can apply to any career field as adults. “A lot of them have never held a job before this, so it provides them with a simulated work experience,” Delma said. “I hope they’re learning a sense of responsibility, an ability to stay on task and a commitment to following through.” “You have to develop patience and good communication skills to do this,” Ferguson said. “You need dedication, persistence and practice to succeed, like with anything else,” Anderson said. “A lot of kids think this class will be easy, but it’s really easy to fail it if you think that way.” Although the Marysville School District’s frequent early-release days on Wednesdays have caused the School House Cafe to open more infrequently on Wednesdays, it still serves customers from 12:15-1:15 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Delma invited the community to check out what his young chefs are cooking up. “The more customers we get, the more work experience our students get,” Delma said. “With everyone’s budgets being so tight, I’d hate to see this program go away.” “If you have a chance, take this class,” Anderson told his peers. “Expect it to be as hard as a regular job, because if you slack off, it’ll show. We’ve got something really unique here. You’ll get top-quality food for your buck, at least when I’m cooking, and even when we do get the occasional bad review, it only helps make us better chefs.”

DWOSKIN FROM PAGE 1 budget could impact people with disabilities. With two relatives who have served as legislators, one on the state level and the other in Washington, D.C., he’s proud to carry on what he sees as a family tradition, and he’s advocated strongly on behalf of people with disabilities. “I’m working to get special education to become just education,” Dwoskin said. “Rather than pulling students apart, everyone deserves to be treated equally. Because of the House bill that was passed in 2007, I was allowed to graduate from MarysvillePilchuck High School with my peers in 2010.” In addition to volunteering to feed the homeless, coaching and refereeing various youth sports, and emceeing the Marysville YMCA’s annual breakdancing contests, Dwoskin impressed Kelly Church, the parent/family coalition coordinator for the Arc of Snohomish County, by stepping up to lead and motivate the more than 60 members of its legislative advocacy workshop in Olympia last month. She cited the two days and three nights that

he worked with her and the Developmental Disabilities Council, from Dec. 1-3 in the capitol, on developing position statements on retaining available respite care for family members, as well as Medicaid services for those with disabilities. “Preston has been a real blessing to our leadership development program,” Church said. “He is a real gogetter and a true leader in our community.” Jim Strickland taught Dwoskin in the Marysville School District’s Life Skills program. As Dwoskin has progressed to enrolling in the 18-21 Transition Opportunities program and Everett Community College, Strickland has observed that his former pupil has never been content to stay in the background. “He gravitates toward the spotlight and leadership roles,” Strickland said. “He has high aspirations and a real can-do attitude, so I can’t wait to see how he continues to make his mark in years to come.” Dwoskin’s volunteer work with Jon Nehring’s mayoral campaign this past fall has inspired him to seek elective office himself, most likely with

a run for a Marysville City Council seat within the next five years. Dwoskin had met Nehring through local youth sports, and was impressed by how the incumbent mayor “listens to your whole idea” during conversations. “I also like his buzz-cut and the way he acts in the community,” Dwoskin said. “Preston’s passion for life and community service is a real inspiration,” Nehring said. “Something that really seems to define his character is his passion for building a sense of community spirit. While he knows that doesn’t mean getting all people behind a single idea or plan, it does mean building relationships in the community to improve the lives of others, and cultivating natural leaders who can then go out and inspire effective community groups working together on projects that serve the community.” Dwoskin will be speaking to the Marysville School District’s Special Education PTSA during their meeting in the Marysville Library on Thursday, Jan. 12, starting at 6:30 p.m. “I’m not just going to spend my time sitting around,” Dwoskin said. “I enjoy helping other people.”

State Supreme Court rules on education funding

BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

OLYMPIA — The state Legislature faces a roughly $2 billion budget shortfall with its session that started Jan. 9, but before they consider any more cuts to education, they’ll need to keep in mind the Washington State Supreme Court’s 7-2 decision in McCleary v. Washington, issued on Jan. 5, which ruled that the Legislature has not complied with its constitutional duty to “make ample provision for the basic education of all children in Washington.” While the Court deferred to the Legislature to determine how to meet this constitutional duty, it retained jurisdiction over the case to “facilitate progress in the state’s plan to fully implement the reforms by 2018.” This represents the culmination of a case that’s been working its way through the legal system since a coalition of Washington teachers, school districts, community groups and parents filed it in King County Superior Court in 2007, alleging that the state had not fulfilled its constitutional obligation to fully fund basic education, and had instead relied too heavily on local levy funding assistance. Lakewood School District Superintendent Dr. Dennis Haddock was part of that lawsuit, and he was gratified that this ruling was issued before start of the Legislature’s latest session. “From a judicial standpoint, this obviously amplifies the importance of meeting our state’s constitutional requirement of ample funding for basic education, so hopefully

the Legislature should be able to fully fund it through dependable sources.” In its Jan. 5 ruling, the Court recognized the Legislature had enacted “a promising reform package” in its 2009 education reform bill and indicated that this legislation, if funded, “will remedy deficiencies in the K-12 funding system.” Marysville School District Superintendent Dr. Larry Nyland, who was also part of the Network for Excellence in Washington Schools lawsuit, likewise described himself as hopeful, but sounded a more cautious note. “This is the third time in my career that what the state has done has been found unconstitutional,” Nyland chuckled. “I hope they’ll fix it, and I hope they’ll fix it soon, but I’m not counting the money just yet. The Legislature still has big problems to solve, and they set aside plans for last year that they found they couldn’t afford. With the stipulation that the funding has to be increased by 2018, that also opens it up to exactly what this decision means. I hope it means good news for next year — either no cuts, or substantially fewer cuts than the $6 million they’re talking about for Marysville just next year. We can’t count on this solving all our budget woes.” Nyland acknowledged that the state’s finances are limited, but argued that this should result in the funding for other areas, which aren’t mandated by the state constitution, being voted on instead. State Rep. Dan Kristiansen echoed Nyland’s priorities, elaborating that he hadn’t been able to support the state House bill in 2009, in spite

got gas?

of agreeing with many of its reforms, because it did not outline how to fund its policy changes. “It was an empty promise,” Kristiansen said. “When you look at where the governor wants to go in 2012 with education money, it’s basically buying back cuts with sales tax increases. That’s backwards to me, because education should be the first thing we’re funding, not the last. In a $32 billion state budget, there are so many things that we fund that have absolutely nothing to do with our state constitution. Whether we agree with it or not, as state Legislators, we’ve all sworn to uphold that constitution, so let’s ask voters if they’d be willing to be taxed for other expenditures.” Arlington School District Superintendent Dr. Kristine McDuffy nonetheless expressed pleasure with the Court’s ruling and noted that Arlington was one of the first school districts to get involved in the NEWS suit four years ago. “This ruling clearly articulates the state’s paramount duty to fully fund basic education,” McDuffy said. “We hope the Legislature’s actions reflect the high court’s ruling.” “Basic education has pretty clearly been underfunded or inappropriately funded for far too long,” Haddock said. “We’ve all been awaiting this outcome for a long time.” Although the Washington Education Association is still reviewing all the details, WEA President Mary Lindquist declared that “there is no doubt” that the state Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the lower court’s ruling in

McCleary v. Washington is “a huge victory for Washington children and public education.” “The Supreme Court reaffirmed what the WEA and its partners in the Network for Excellence in Washington Schools have argued for so long — public education in Washington is woefully underfunded,” Lindquist said. “This means students and schools can no longer bear the impact of further cuts to public education funding.” Like Haddock, Lindquist appreciated that this decision preceded the start of the state Legislature’s 2012 session, because she believes it puts the responsibility for correcting the underfunding “where it belongs,” with the Legislature itself. “The Legislature can no

longer punt on full funding for public education,” Lindquist said. “It needs to act immediately to remedy this injustice against our children and students.” “The state appealed this case to the Supreme Court to receive clarification and direction to guide the Legislature in meeting its constitutional duty, and this decision is helpful,” state Attorney General Rob McKenna said. “We’re pleased the Court continues to recognize the primary role of the Legislature in determining how to meet its constitutional duty, and that the Court recognizes the Legislature’s progress in fulfilling the state’s obligation in passing its 2009 education reforms.” The case was argued before the Washington State

Supreme Court on June 28, 2011, by Senior Counsel Bill Clark, after being argued before the King County Superior Court in 2009. In 2010, the trial judge directed the Legislature to conduct a study to establish the cost of providing all Washington children with a basic education, and to establish how it would fully fund such education with stable and dependable state sources. The state Supreme Court rejected these directions by the lower court, finding that the Legislature’s implementation of recently approved education reforms satisfied the requirements to establish a plan for determining the cost of a basic education, and would meet the constitutional obligation to fund basic education, if adequately funded.

What I learned

A

s we start yet another new year filled with possibility and challenge, I find myself reflecting on the many lessons learned this past year from stories of diversity and inclusion. More than anything, I learned a new way of seeing beyond the commonly used label “disability.” Everyone I know uses this word, usually with the best of intentions. I use it myself. But labels are almost never useful; they diminish people and create hurtful if unintended boundaries. Perhaps a better way of seeing each other — more accurate, more useful, and more compassionate than a label — is to think of ourselves and everyone around us as uniquely complex bundles of human characteristics, with some characteristics expressed more and others expressed less or not at all in gloriously infinite combination. Given that we are all so different, yet in our difference so very much alike, who can say where to draw the line between one label and another? Take, for example, another key insight from this year. I learned how much people of all abilities need to be loved and wanted, and what their experiences in the thorny realm of romantic relationships can teach us. I was so moved by the recent newspaper account of Jack and Kirsten — one with Asperger syndrome, the other with a mild form of autism — as

TOM EVERILL PRESIDENT & CEO OF NORTHWEST CENTER they work through the tribulations of young love. “She was the only girl to have ever asked questions about his obsessive interests — chemistry, libertarian politics, the small drone aircraft he was building in his kitchen — as though she actually cared to hear his answer,” according to the article. He was the first boy who didn’t try to improve her social skills or probe endlessly into her innermost feelings which, as they are for so many people on the autism spectrum, are all but completely inexpressible for her. “It’s like the blue screen of death,” she tried to explain to a former boyfriend. “There are no words there.” So Jack bites his lip, not being sure how to arrange his face to show his emotions. And Kirsten cracks her knuckles in public, a substitute for the hand-flapping that comforts her when alone. No problem at all. Kirsten “knew only that she felt as if she had found her soulmate” when she met Jack. As Kirsten explained to a recent forum for special needs teenagers, “Parents always ask, ‘Who would like to marry my kid? They’re so weird.’ But, like, another weird person, that’s who.” SEE LEARNED, PAGE 5

Arlington School District sends levy to voters

A

rlington School District is one of 295 school districts in the state of Washington. While each district is unique in its demographics, needs, community support and funding issues, there are many laws and regulations that govern how all districts are managed. During the current economic times, school districts are challenged to meet the many educational requirements while experiencing diminishing resources. The Washington State Constitution establishes the education of all children as the paramount duty of the state. It requires the state to make ample provision for a uniform system of public schools.To carry out its constitutional responsibility, the state

dedicates almost half of all state General Fund resources to support of the public schools. School districts account for the day-to-day maintenance and operations of the district in their General Fund. Other funds are used to account for specialized activities. These include the Capital Projects Fund for the acquisition of land, equipment, and facilities; the Debt Service Fund for redemption of

bonds and payment of interest; the Transportation Vehicle Fund for the acquisition and maintenance of pupil transportation equipment; the Associated Student Body Fund for student activities; and Trust Funds for donations dedicated for specific uses. Last school year, Arlington School District received 66.5 percent of its General Fund revenue from the state allocation. These funds are used for Basic Education, Special Education, and Career and Technical Education. In addition, the district received 8.6 percent of its General Fund operating revenue from federal sources and the local programs and operations levy SEE ASD, PAGE 5

Marysville’s current transportation site is inadequate for present and future needs. Good stewardship of district funds, together with a favorable construction market and state support, provides an opportunity to meet critical needs at less cost to local taxpayers.

from hundreds of bus washes per week go directly into the ground without recycling. This is costly, time consuming, and does not meet minimum basic requirements. Stretching Local Funds: After meeting — and exceeding — the 2006 bond issue promises, about $5.5 million remains in the construction fund. While this is not enough to replace a school ($20 million), with state help it may be enough to address our transportation needs.

State law states these dollars can be spent only on construction — they can’t be used to cover state cuts to the day to day operating budget. $8 Million in State Funding: The state has one-time money remaining in their capital construction account. They will provide $8 million in state support for a transportation co-op — a partnership between two or more districts. By working with neighboring districts we would be able to share in the cost of routing buses, lowering the cost of fuel, and providing parts and maintenance for our bus fleets as well as solving the bus wash and fuel tank issues.

MSD FROM PAGE 4 completed all of the work promised in the 2006 bond issue. Grove Elementary and Getchell High School were completed on time and under budget. All other bond commitments — land, small projects, and technology — have also been completed. In each case, we have been able to do more than we promised. Nearly $8 million in small projects have helped keep our older schools going — with projects like the Pinewood sewer, electrical panel fixes at MMS, and heating and ventilation improvements in many schools. Stewardship: Marysville also completed new schools for Heritage, A&T and 10th Street with NO local property taxes. This project was funded entirely through mitigation fees (on newly

We now have new and improved classrooms that will serve 700 Marysville students for many years to come — without increasing property taxes. Citizen Oversight Committee: A committee of eight citizens with extensive community and construction expertise provide “oversight” of district construction projects. They have helped us stretch our local construction funds. Now, as we near the end of the 2006 bond funding, the oversight committee has helped us consider remaining district needs. Best Investment? We have set aside $500,000 for school construction emergencies (heaters, plumbing, electrical) and bond repayments. For technology we have set aside $800,000 more

than promised, however bond dollars can buy only equipment, not tech support. After planning for these contingencies, $5.5 million remains. These dollars cannot be used to balance the day-to-day operations budget and is not enough to build a new school. Using these remaining funds for a transportation co-op will meet a critical district need and stretch local tax dollars by qualifying for $8 million in state support. We would avoid expensive repairs, prepare now for future growth, and create lots of local construction jobs. Next Steps: We will ask the Citizens’ Oversight Committee for a recommendation, hold a public forum in conjunction with our Citizens’ Planning Committee, schedule a public hearing at an upcoming board meeting and then ask the school board to take

official action. Our district web site will be updated with more information. Meeting Needs: If all of these pieces fall into place and state approval is received, construction could start in the fall of 2012. We would meet critical transportation needs, solve environmental issues, create local construction dollars and stretch local tax dollars one more time to do even more than promised. For More Information: There will be a Forum/ Citizen’s Planning Committee meeting on Jan. 18 at 6 p.m. at the Marysville Board Room or visit the Marysville School District website at www.msvl.k12.wa.us.

The doctor who cared for Noemi until she died last year noted that “Edwin is like a 10-year-old who tries to act like what he thinks a man should be. But he was doing it better than any man could.” Where is the line here between normal and disabled, and why do we waste time working on what is clearly the wrong question? We are all bundles of human

potential, whether that potential be for learning, for work, or for love. Jack and Kirsten face the same issues all couples face; only the details are different. Edwin and Noemi model what marriage can be in its purest form, a benchmark of love despite the wheelchairs and adult diapers — or perhaps because of them. Our very differences speak to what we all have in common, to our essence, and help every one of us understand what it means to be human. This is the power of diversity, that it throws the human condition into high

relief, bringing a clarity we so urgently need as we face the complex challenges of the 21st Century. Best wishes for a richly rewarding New Year.

funded 21.2 percent of General fund operations. The other 3.8 percent of the district’s revenue came from fees, such as school lunches, and other local revenue. The Arlington School District spends 92.6 percent of its operating budget directly on student learning. The largest expenditure area for Arlington School District is in the area of instruction. About 69.1 percent of all expenditures are for teaching and the classroom, while another 6.7 percent is spent on administering the school buildings. The cost of operating, upkeep and management of school buildings and facilities accounts for 8.0 percent of all expenditures. And, the cost of transporting students by bus accounts for 5.5 percent of all district spending. Providing 805,353 breakfasts and lunches for approximately 5,400 students is another 3.3 percent of the General Fund budget. Not included in the above descriptions of student learning activities costs are the expenses needed to provide direct

support to schools, such as the district office, records management, health services, student activities and athletics and family communication. These costs account for 7.4 percent of the General Fund expenditures. On February 14, the district has a Replacement of Expiring Program and Operations Levy measure on the ballot. This local funding, as noted above, supports over 21 percent of our General Fund programs and operations. Adequate funding to continue to give the students of Arlington the best education possible continues to be a significant challenge and concern.

Lakewood delays school levies

BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

LAKEWOOD — The Lakewood School District’s two levies that had been slated for the Feb. 14 ballot are instead expected to appear on the April 17 ballot. Last year, the Lakewood School District Board of Directors authorized placing two measures on the Feb. 14 ballot — Proposition One, the replacement school programs and operations levy,

and Proposition Two, the capital projects and technology levy — but according to Lakewood School District Superintendent Dr. Dennis Haddock, the records of the Snohomish County Auditor’s Office don’t reflect any receipt of the Board’s resolutions, which were required to be received by a certain date for those measures to be placed on the Feb. 14 ballot. As such, Haddock will be recommending to the Board that both propositions be placed on the April 17 ballot. “We followed our regular mailing procedures,”

Haddock said. “Because we didn’t send it certified mail, we don’t have any confirmation. We’ll be doing that this time.” Haddock explained that this unexpected turn of events should actually benefit the Lakewood School District in a few ways, not in the least because moving the two levies onto the April 17 ballot will allow voters in the school district to focus more on those levies, and the district itself to keep an eye on the latest developments in Olympia that might impact those levies.

“By deferring this to a later date, we can be more watchful of the Legislative activity that might be affecting our revenues,” Haddock said. “The governor is focusing on budget reductions for the state, but she’s also looking into areas of revenue as well. That additional time allows us to factor in revenue from other sources, and to check what’s going on in education funding in general.” Haddock also looks forward to having two more months to inform voters about the propositions before their ballots are due.

ARLINGTON — Cascade Valley Hospital held its latest blood drive, in partnership with the Puget Sound Blood Center, on Dec. 30 to give Arlington residents another chance to give blood before the end of the year. The drives occur once every three months, from noon to 6 p.m., so that donors can give blood on their way home from work. “It used to be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. but people wanted it pushed back to fit their work schedules,” Community Relations Coordinator Jenny Egger said. “We love the Puget Sound Blood Center.” Egger wore a pink Breast Cancer Awareness lanyard lined with Cascade Valley Hospital, Relay for Life and Heart Health Awareness pins to show her support for healthy living and generous giving. Dr. Tim Richards, part of the Puget Sound Blood Center staff that facilitates the donations, has worked in blood drives for 17 years. “At Skagit Valley Hospital it’s good and busy,” Richards said. “But this is probably the busiest we get.” The hospital spread word about the drive through emails and on Facebook within the community. The average blood drive has

I’m excited because the employees are so into it.” Arlington resident Kathy Freeman donates blood as

often as she can. She started in 1975 around the time her mother died of cancer and Freeman realized how valuable blood is. “I’ve given a lot,” Freeman said. “I still have a lot left, though.” Eldora Sundin of Arlington reached her Gallon Day, on which a donor receives a pin on his or her eighth visit, on Dec.

30. Sundin has been cancerfree for 28 years but didn’t know she was allowed to give blood again. “People have to remember to hydrate before they give blood,” Egger said. “It’s usually hard to convince men to give blood. I’d be interested in seeing how many more women than men they bring in.” Cascade Valley storekeeper Ginny Sullivan, who receives, distributes and sometimes orders supplies, has given blood steadily for four years. Her donations, however, are special. “I have rare A Negative blood and lots of people need it,” Sullivan said. “Only 8 percent of people have it.” The blood donation process is very simple. “It’s quick and it takes 20 minutes,” Sullivan said. “It’s easy and it’s good karma. At first you’re a little lightheaded afterward, but it’s probably more from lying down so long. Then you hang out, rest for 10 or 20 minutes, visit with fellow donors and you get a free cookie.” Those who would like to give blood in the future can check for upcoming blood drives and make appointments at www.facebook. com/cascadevalley. “This is a small town,” Egger said. “Your nurse could be your neighbor. It’s close to home and close to the heart. Three or four generations of families were born in this hospital.”

‘Healthiest You’ helps community get in shape BY JAKE MCNEAL

jmcneal@arlingtontimes.com

ARLINGTON — Local businesses have teamed up to help people in the Arlington community get into the best shape of their lives. Healthiest You, a weight loss competition inspired by “The Biggest Loser” and sponsored by 15 businesses including Absolute Air Park, Mountain State Fitness and Stroller Strides, is an eightweek event in which the community can sign up and get fit over eight weeks. The first week’s challenge calls for each contestant to drink half of his or her body weight in ounces of water. Healthiest You’s event on Facebook attracted nearly 30 people. Some are joining the competition with pre-formed teams of two to four people each, but teams will be formed for those without partners. Contestants are invited to work out in classes with sponsors of Healthiest You. Prizes from the sponsors include two three-month packages from Stillaguamish Athletic Club and photography packages for post-contest beauty shots with Brittany Masella Photography. The

grand prize is $250 in cash from Gutierrez Family Chiropractic. GFC will also provide massages and laser package vouchers. “It’s only eight weeks, so people won’t drop out,” GFC manager Emily Davidson said. “We’ll keep them interested with teams and prizes.” Teams will be subjected to weekly updates on weight loss progress so they can gauge what is or isn’t working. GFC spread word of Healthiest You through Facebook, word-ofmouth and posters in sponsors’ offices. Emily Peterson, who owns the “A Beautiful Addiction” tanning salon in Arlington, took part in GFC’s Ideal Protein diet before becoming a sponsor. Two members of her “Chubby Buddies” Healthiest You team started the diet and have already lost weight. The two who did not take up the diet have not.

Rep. Pearson talks budget cuts, revenue and job creation BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

567620

MARYSVILLE — As state Rep. Kirk Pearson heads into his sixth term, he reflected on recent changes and upcoming challenges facing both the Legislature and its constituents. By his reckoning, he lost part of Marysville in the redistricting, but he still represents Marysville and Arlington citizens. “I’m happy that I didn’t lose a lot,” Pearson said. “I still have essentially the same district as before.” This year’s state budget promises to be far more difficult. Pearson had hoped to handle most of it during the special session, which only resolved a portion of it, but he encouraged citizens not to mistake the political processes of Washington state for Washington, D.C. “The state Legislature recognizes that we’re all in this together,” said Pearson, a member of the Republican minority in the state House of Representatives. “It’s not about election ploys for us. We care about helping the citizens of this state. We do hope the Democrats will take some of our ideas. We’ve offered some good ideas, and if they could get hearings, that’d be great.” At the same time, Pearson, a strong advocate of public safety, expressed concerns over proposed cuts to public safety, espe-

“We’re putting our citizens in peril if there’s no safety net to protect them from people who are highly likely to reoffend. Education, the vulnerable and needy, and public safety are areas we can’t play with.” Rep. Kirk Pearson 39th District cially in areas such as supervision for sex offenders, since hundreds of correctional officers and staff have already been cut in recent years. “We’re putting our citizens in peril if there’s no safety net to protect them from people who are highly likely to reoffend,” Pearson said. “Education, the vulnerable and needy, and public safety are areas that we can’t play with.” To that end, Pearson reiterated his support for levy equalization, noting that school districts throughout Snohomish County would be hit disproportionately hard if those dollars were taken away. “That’s non-negotiable,” Pearson said. “I hope cooler heads prevail, but bottom line, our state’s only mandate is to fund education.” When considering what combination of cuts and revenue would work best to meet this need, Pearson took exception to how he sees the governor defining “cuts.” “My definition of a cut

is, if my salary gets reduced by 3 percent, that’s a cut,” Pearson said. “As far as the governor is concerned, if you’re projected to make more money, but you don’t get it, that’s a ‘cut.’ That’s not really a cut, though.” Pearson also argued that job creation is essential to bolstering the state budget, and cited legislation that he plans to push this year, which hadn’t received a hearing last year, to direct the state government to shop for contracted products and services within its own borders first. “Even the Department of Corrections buys furniture from out of state,” Pearson said. “I’d rather keep those dollars in the state and put our people first.” Pearson praised his constituents for supplying him with ideas for legislation, and credited a recent discussion with Cory Duskin, general manager of the Arlington Pharmacy, with educating him about Pharmacy Benefit Managers, third-party administrators of prescrip-

tion drug programs. “The PBMs are middlemen who rebate the top products,” Pearson said. “The Duskins aren’t really on a level playing field with them.” Pearson is already working on legislation that would establish minimum standards for PBM contracts in Washington state, since they’re the only profession dealing in health care that is not regulated in the state. “I hear a lot from my constituents in this area, and I hold their opinions in high regard,” Pearson said. “Because of the Duskins, I’ll be dropping a bill on the floor that could benefit the whole state.” Another budget-saving measure Pearson is pursuing is the education of state employees to prevent their agencies from being hit with tort judgement. He cited the $78 million that the state was deemed liable for negligence in the last year alone. “We have no choice but to balance the budget, so we need to think outside of the box to do it,” Pearson said. “We have an opportunity to run government more efficiently, and we need to be willing to work with each other to do it. Most of the bills that I’ve pushed through over the years, I had to have help from the other side on, because that’s part of being in the minority. I’ve got a big agenda and I’m going to be hitting the floor running. I’m optimistic. We can’t just fall back on the same-old-same-old, because that’s what’s gotten us to where we’re at right now.”

M-P grapplers score win over Arlington BY JAKE MCNEAL

jmcneal@arlingtontimes.com

ARLINGTON — Marysville-Pilchuck wrestling head coach Craig Iversen and his Tomahawk team visited Arlington High School on Jan. 4 for a special match to open his team’s Wesco North seasons against Arlington, coached by his father, Rick Iversen. The match started strongly in the Tomahawks’ favor but would turn sharply toward an Arlington comeback that fell just three points shy. The match included a 6-5 M-P pin advantage that made all the difference in the Tomahawks’ 39-36 win. “We knew it would be close,” Craig Iversen said. “Local matches are always better and Wesco North matches are always tough. It’s a very competitive league.” The result marked the second time that Craig has emerged the winner in the Iversen series. Craig first bested his father as Burlington-Edison’s coach in 1995 when Rick was the

Tomahawks’ head coach. Tomahawk senior 285-pounder Skylar Hatch opened the night with a pin of Eagle senior Dylan Worley after 1:06. Eagle freshman 106-pounder Clayton Hunter retaliated with a pin of sophomore Austin Sunseth after 1:20. M-P junior Jacob Greene put his 112 pounds to work and pinned Arlington sophomore Wes Conley after 58 seconds in the third round. “Jacob had a big win for us,” Craig Iversen said. Tomahawk 120-pound freshman Ryan Daurie pinned Eagle sophomore Skyler Wren in 1:08. Junior Israel Lopez of M-P pinned 126-pound Eagle junior Jared BrockAnderson after 44 seconds in the third round. M-P freshman 132-pounder Killian Page won a 9-6 decision against sophomore Bryce Thomas to remain undefeated on the season. Arlington trailed 27-6 after Page’s win, but the Eagles came roaring back.

Arlington junior Jesse Driscoll pinned 145-pound Tomahawk junior Anthony Moffitt after 44 in the second round to pull the Eagles to within two pins at 27-15. M-P 152-pounder Drew Hatch pinned Arlington senior Erik Davis after 1:00 to push the Tomahawk lead

to 33-15 with five matches remaining. Eagle senior Brandon Chase earned an 11-5 decision over 160-pound Tomahawk junior Jordan Woodin. Arlington 170-pounder Chris Nelson pinned M-P junior Jake Merrick after 58 seconds in the second round. The Tomahawks’ lead shrank to 33-24 after

Nelson’s display, but M-P 182-pound senior Chris Herbert ended Arlington’s comeback by pinning Eagle freshman Cody Weldon after 28 seconds for a 39-24 lead. Eagle sophomore Jake Ferro pinned Tomahawk 195-pound senior Neil Hamilton after 41 seconds in the second round and 220-pound Arlington senior Blake McPherson pinned

M-P junior Iggy Gabov after 26 seconds in the final match of the night, but the margin was greater than one match could overcome. M-P took the pin and held on for a 39-36 win. M-P improves to 6-1 overall with their Wesco opener. “Not many people get to wrestle against a team coached by their father,” Craig Iversen said. “It’s pretty cool.”

Tommies, Chargers face off against Lake Stevens BY JAKE MCNEAL

jmcneal@arlingtontimes.com

MARYSVILLE — MarysvillePilchuck and Marysville Getchell boys swim and dive hosted Lake Stevens on Jan. 3 seeking success in their first meet back from the holiday break. M-P found what it was looking for as they beat Lake Stevens 10482 with first-place finishes in eight events. MG recorded two secondplace and three third-place finishes but fell to the Vikings 131-51. “For this meet we put our lineup together based on our swimmers’ best events to match up with Lake Stevens’,” M-P and MG head coach Meredith Jenks said. “A lot of swimming is individual. You as a person have to decide, ‘What are your goals and what do you want?’” The Tomahawk A team of junior Jacob Blomberg (29.91 seconds), seniors Jon Ell (30.65) and Justin Cram (28.76) and junior Ryan Carr (28.12) took first in the 200-yard medley relay with a total time of 1:57.44. Getchell’s A team

of seniors Matt Knowlton (30.93) and David Fugate (34.45), sophomore Taylor Dalton (28.30) and junior Kevin Korte (25.37) took third at 1:59.05. M-P’s B team of seniors Casey Mills (34.69) and Corey Coombs (32.83), sophomore Owin Ell (31.69) and senior Connor Zurcher (28.74) finished fifth. Tomahawk junior Colin Willis (1:53.22), senior Andrew Winquist (1:56.32) and sophomore Jonathan Pusateri (2:10.55) placed first, second and third, respectively, in the 200-yard freestyle. All three qualified for Districts. “We worked hard through winter practice,” assistant coach Cully Preston said. “We had been working on distance and stroke work before, but now we’ll start to work on speed. We were missing (Tomahawk) Josh Estella in the 100 fly and 100 dash because of tendonitis, but he’ll be back in the pool any week.” Blomberg (2:23.50 for first place) and Cram (2:30.14 for second) recorded Districts times in the 200-yard individual medley. Owin

Ell (2:36.96 for fifth) qualified for 3A Districts. Dalton (2:36.89 for fourth) made 3A Districts as well. Knowlton (24.85 for second) qualified for 4A Districts in the 50-yard freestyle. Korte took fourth at 0:26.12. Jon Ell (25:05 for third) also made 4A Districts. M-P senior Tyler Russell took second in the 1-meter dive with 174.10 points. Tomahawk Deshawn Lee took fifth with 90.75. Cram (1:06.49) won the 100yard butterfly and made 4A Districts. Dalton (1:08.45) took second. Sophomore Grant Baker (1:12.36) took third. Willis (51.83) won the 100yard freestyle to make Districts. Blomberg (58.38) made 3A Districts in third. Pusateri (58.94) took fourth. Korte (59.43) finished fifth. Winquist won the 500-yard freestyle and made Districts at 5:17.38. Getchell junior Michael Cozart took fourth at 6:42.77. M-P’s A relay team (1:39.85) won the 200-yard free relay. The B team (1:50.95) took third. MG’s A team (1:50.96) took fourth.

Marysville-Pilchuck senior Corey Coombs competes against Oak Harbor at M-PHS on Dec. 4. Tomahawk junior Thomas Durand (1:08.56) made Districts at second place in the 100-yard backstroke. Knowlton (1:08.72) made 4A Districts as well in third. Jon Ell (1:10.13) took second in the 100-yard breaststroke and made 3A Districts. Coombs (1:12.88) took third and qualified as well. Getchell junior Daniel Swanson (1:18.98) took third and M-P sophomore Mark Carr fin-

ished fifth at 1:25.02. The Tomahawk A relay team completed the three-event sweep by winning the 400-yard freestyle relay at 3:46.14. The B team finished fourth at 4:33.62. Getchell’s A team took fifth at 4:36.13. “We came out of winter break and got back into swimming hard,” Jenks said. “There was some fatigue, but we’re looking forward to the (Jan. 14) Kentridge meet.”

Tomahawks hold on for 45-42 win over B-E BY JAKE MCNEAL

jmcneal@arlingtontimes.com

MARYSVILLE — Tomahawk girls basketball looked to restart a winning streak when they squared off against 7-1 BurlingtonEdison on Dec. 29. M-P’s fleet-footed offense found the basket just often enough to hold on for a 45-42 win. The Tomahawks opened the game in a 2-3 zone, out of which sophomore guard Amanda Klep snagged two quick steals. B-E kept their patience against the zone blockade, looking for open shots as M-P wanted to run them up and down the floor. The Tigers were methodical with pick-and-rolls on offense but did not hesitate to shoot threes. The Tomahawks weren’t worried about what B-E wanted to do because Klep harassed Tiger guards and energized her team with steal after steal. “Amanda’s a spark plug,” Tomahawk head coach Julie Martin said. “She’s learning the aspects of the point

guard position and I’m so proud of her.” B-E started a full-court press to slow the Tomahawk stampede, but M-P forward Emily Enberg kept her team scoring by making a set of free throws on back-to-back trips down the court on the way to a 12-6 M-P lead at the end of the first quarter. Tiger senior guard Katlyn Mataya hit started the second quarter with a threepointer that said B-E would not roll over. Klep notched another steal and thundered down the court with sophomore guard Jordan Bengen and senior post Hannah Watson to continue their attack. The Tomahawks began to box the Tigers out, control the ball and take away B-E’s second chances. “We did a good job to find the open person,” Martin said. “We went high-low and didn’t just shoot it if there wasn’t a shot.” Boyle hit two free throws after being fouled on a post leaner from the left block and sophomore guard Charlee Pilon cashed in a fast break layup to force a

Tiger timeout, up 18-9 with 2:09 until halftime. Klep showed off her versatility when she sank a turnaround jumper from free throw depth. Enberg muscled down the lane with a galloping swoop before the half expired, but B-E hit another three-pointer to keep the game close, 22-17 M-P, at the half. The Tomahawks stepped up to challenge Tiger drivers, stuck to B-E’s shooters on the perimeter and led 24-17 when M-P called timeout with 5:27 left in the third quarter as they were outplaying B-E but not turning their efforts into points. “We went to set plays to work the ball against their 2-3 zone when we weren’t scoring,” said Martin, who recognized her team’s composure and confidence. B-E played like a smart, seasoned team with ball control offense and a battling defense to trail only 27-26 at the start of the fourth quarter. Mataya hit a three to open the fourth and give the Tigers their first lead of the game at 29-27.

Klep rebutted by finding Pilon streaking down the court for a fast break layup to tie the game and swing momentum back in the Tomahawks’ favor. Enberg opened up the offense with a left free throw depth jumper as the Tigers switched to a 2-3 zone. She and Klep hit three-pointers to push the lead to 38-30 and force a B-E timeout. Tiger junior guard Sydney Brown hit a three with 2:30 left to draw to 38-33, but Watson made

two free throws and scored in the post on the next possession to open up a 42-33 lead with 1:43 to go. Brown sank another three-pointer and Mataya made one of two free throws off a fouled drive to trail 42-37 with 34.2 seconds left. “When we stayed in 1-2-2 zone, Brown decided to start hitting threes,” Martin said. Klep made a free throw, and two more after the Tigers missed a shot and had to foul, to put the

13

Tomahawks up 45-39. The Tigers sank a threepointer but received a technical foul for an intentional foul with one second left. M-P missed the free throw but had only to inbound the ball and drain the final second from the clock for a 45-42 win. “We wanted to focus on ourselves and get better at what we do, and nonconference games are good for that,” Martin said. “This was our most complete game and everyone played her role.”

MARYSVILLE — Marysville Getchell looked to improve their execution when they hosted Arlington on Dec. 27, their fourth game against a 4A opponent this season. Arlington came to town, fresh off of the holiday break, trying to extend their winning streak to four games and avoid complacency through the first of a pair of nonconference games. “We wanted to keep focused on our skills and practice hard,” Arlington head coach Joe Marsh said. “It’s always hard to play after Christmas, but we needed to keep at it and get better at what we want to do.” Getchell showed improvement, as they had in each game this season, but the Eagles pressured the Chargers all night to win their fourth game in a row, 62-13. Despite the final score, upper-league opponents are necessary tests for this inaugural Charger squad. “Our effort was excellent, phenomenal,” Getchell head coach Shannon Grandbois said. “This was the best defense we’ve played so far. Never mind that we have to play so many games against 4A schools. If we can show this kind of effort against teams in our league, we’ll be good.” The Eagles opened the game with full-court pressure to convert Getchell turnovers into layups for an early 10-0 lead. They sat back in a 2-3 zone to keep the Chargers on the perimeter, but the Chargers swung the ball around the outside to find entry passes on the baseline.

Arlington senior guard Megan Abdo takes control of a loose ball against Marysville Getchell junior guard Kayann Gamalinda on Dec. 27. Post presence was a factor in both teams’ plans of attack. Charger senior posts Brianna Lloyd-Bennett and Kyleigh Dschaak, who racked up eight points on the night, and junior post Alexys Wilson squared off against Eagle senior centers Cassie Van Loo, Danyell Winterrowd and Kaiti Ferro. “We like to establish our post players early,” Grandbois said. “You won’t get fouled or score if you don’t shoot.” The Eagles out-rebounded the Chargers, who stood and watched the ball instead of boxing out and securing possession. The trend continued for a 27-4 Arlington halftime lead.

“We worked on our game plan tonight, like we wanted to, and some girls who don’t usually get to play got to take advantage of the opportunity,” Marsh said. “We’ve played consistently in the last four or five games, and we’re getting better.” Getchell pressed Arlington to start the third quarter, with a renewed focus on swarming rebounds and creating position with muscle and grit, but the Eagles managed to run their offense as usual. Arlington senior guard Lauren Grogan hit a threepoint shot clock buzzer beater and junior Taylor Graham watched a swoop-

ing under-the-basket reverse circus layup fall as she trotted backward toward midcourt. The Eagles led 52-7 after three quarters. Arlington hit a pair of threes as the game neared the middle of the fourth quarter and slowed their pace to wind down the rest of the clock for a 62-13 win. “We’ve got seven straight days of practice and that’ll be great for improving what we want to work on,” said Grandbois after the game. “This is the best group of girls you’ll ever meet. They’re so willing to learn and they’re enduring all of the 4A schools on the schedule.”

Rock & Gem Club Watershed Council sets Jan. 26 meeting donates to food bank

MARYSVILLE — Although the winter holiday season has just wrapped up, the degree of need among many families in the community remains. Marysville Community Food Bank Director Dell Deierling knows this too well, which was why he was pleased to receive a special visit from Marysville Rock and Gem Club President Bill Moser on Monday, Jan. 2. Moser presented Deierling with not only 152 pounds of non-perishable food items from the Marysville Rock and Gem Club, but also a check in the amount of $500 for the Marysville Community Food Bank. “At the club’s annual Christmas party, members were asked to bring in cans of food,” said Dottie Haage, publicity chair for the Marysville Rock and Gem Club. “The response was overwhelming.” Haage praised Deierling and the more than 200 volunteers of the Marysville Community Food Bank for

The Marysville Rock and Gem Club meets at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesdays of each month, except for July, in the Jennings Memorial

Park Barn, located at 6915 Armar Rd. in Marysville. For more information, log onto their website at https:// sites.google.com/site/marysvillerockngemclub.

ARLINGTON — The Stillaguamish Watershed Council will ring in its 12th year with its next meeting at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 26. The Angel of the Winds Casino Watershed Restaurant conference room will serve as the site for the discussion between the 26 locally focused stakeholders whose stated aims are to restore and maintain a healthy Stillaguamish River system. “The significance of this diverse group is that we can address issues from varying perspectives, in an open forum where all voices can be heard in an atmosphere of respect and value,” said Franchesca Perez, an assistant with the Stillaguamish Watershed Council and an outreach biologist with the Stillaguamish Tribe’s Natural Resources Department. “You may or may not have heard of our group or know some of our members, or even forgotten all about us,

but a new year is a time for renewal and remembrance.” Perez explained that the Stillaguamish Watershed Council formally began in 1990 as the Stillaguamish Implementation Review Committee, whose original focus was to assist in the cleanup of water pollution in the Stillaguamish River, by guiding the implementation of the Stillaguamish Watershed Action Plan approved that year by the Department of Ecology. The group began and continues to be comprised of a diverse variety of agencies, non-profits and local citizen representatives, whose mission has expanded over time to include a timely focused effort on the recovery of Stillaguamish Chinook, after they were listed as threatened in 1999. “The Stillaguamish Watershed Council worked hard coordinating with regional entities to develop the Stillaguamish Watershed

Chinook Recovery Plan that was adopted in 2005, which is included in the federal recovery plan for the entire Puget Sound Chinook population,” Perez said. “This grassroots group has always held dear the idea that, as a group of locally focused stakeholders, we should do our best to focus on issues that impact the quality of life of both humans and wildlife.” Perez expressed the hope that the Stillaguamish Watershed Council could eventually expand to address upland wildlife and avian habitat issues, which she identified as also being key to a sustainable ecosystem future. “We learn from the past to provide for a healthy and naturally sustainable future,” Perez said.

Marysville firefighters battle blaze caused by arson MARYSVILLE — Arson appears to be the cause of a recent residential fire in Marysville. At 10:29 p.m. on Tuesday,

Jan. 3, the Marysville Fire District was dispatched to a residential fire in the 6700 block of 40th Street NE. Firefighters arrived at 10:34

DINE IN • TAKE OUT • DELIVERY

p.m. and located a fire in a single-story residential structure. Original reports stated the house was “on fire with smoke and crackling sounds.” The first arriving captain reported a one-story wellinvolved residential structure. Firefighters fought the fire defensively and the fire was under control within 30 minutes, confined to the structure, which was vacant. No firefighter injuries were reported. The fire’s dollar loss has been estimated at $70,000. At the height of the incident, more than 18 firefighters battled the blaze with mutual aid provided by Lake Stevens Fire District 8. The fire was investigated by the Marysville Fire District Fire Marshal’s Office and the Marysville Police Department, and the cause has been determined to be arson. The MFD and MPD encourage residents to be vigilant in watching vacant properties to reduce potential acts of arson.

It really is not important that you are happy with your religion, what is important is that God is happy with your religion. Are you tired of all the hype and materialism found in so many religious groups these days? God has already shown us what true religion is. At the Smokey Point church of Christ we are committed to the open study and honest application of God’s word. It may not be entertaining but it sure brings a rest from the burden of sin. Isn’t that the whole point of religion? Let’s talk about it. 360-939-2080

ROADSHOW PAYING CASH ON THE SPOT FOR ANTIQUES, GOLD JEWELRY, SILVER COINS AND MORE! By Jason Delong STAFF WRITER

“It’s a modern day gold rush as precious metal prices soar—it’s a seller’s market” says Archie Davis, Roadshow Representative.

Clean out your attics, closets and lock boxes, because the “As seen on TV,” Treasure Hunters Roadshow is coming to Marysville. Roadshow specialists are in town examining your gold and silver, antiques and collectibles. While the Roadshow will accept anything that’s old, they will be focusing on: gold and silver coins made before 1970, military items, toys and trains, musical instruments, pocket and wrist watches. Scrap gold is expected to be a popular category this week due to soaring gold prices. Buyers for the roadshow have noticed a tremendous increase in the amount of gold coming to the Roadshow, and for good reason. Record gold prices have Roadshow guests cashing in on broken or outdated jewelry with our fair and honest purchase offers. The Roadshow encourages anyone planning a visit to take a minute and examine their jewelry box or their lock box at the bank and gather anything that is gold. If a guest is not

sure if something is gold, bring it in and the Roadshow staff will test it for free. Other gold items of interest include gold coins, gold ounces, gold proof sets and dental gold. Other types of items Roadshow specialists hope to see include vintage guitars. Ryan Krushas, one of the Roadshow’s instrument specialists, spoke about some of the top guitars getting great offers. “Gibsons and Fenders are in big demand right now as are vintage amps,” said Krushas. We also buy violins, mandolins, woodwinds, if it plays it pays! Timepiece specialist Jeff Ford adds, “Watches are hot! We recently paid over $2,500 for an old Hamilton pocket watch. And we are buying all types of high-end wrist watches too. Brands like Rolex, Tiffany and Chopard are very desirable to collectors. And the finest Swiss timepiece in the world, Patek Philippe, just earned a happy seller $42,000.00” Fuller went on to explain that any U.S. coins made before 1970 are the most sought after by collectors. Coins

WHAT WE BUY

made before 1965 are 90% silver, and valuable because of either the silver content or even more valuable if one happens to be a rare date. Fuller explained, “We help people sort through their coins for unique dates. We buy all types of coins at the Roadshow—from wheat pennies to buffalo nickels, and from single coins to entire truckloads. See you at the Roadshow.”
