Kestrel SkyHawk of the Sarvey Wildlife Center shows off a golden eagle during the Feb. 4 Arlington-Stillaguamish Eagle Festival.

ARLINGTON — The fifth annual Eagle Festival benefited from warm, sunny weather on Saturday, Feb. 4, as crowds converged on downtown Arlington. Sarvey Wildlife Center staff once again presented a selection of live birds of prey in the Arlington City Council Chambers, attracting onlookers of all ages. Kestrel SkyHawk explained how the Sarvey Wildlife Center has rehabilitated injured, orphaned and ill raptors for decades, and taken in several thousand wild animals every year. Although Sarvey’s goal is to release such animals back into the wild, it provides permanent care to those who can no longer survive in the wild without human care, including the golden and bald eagles,

red-tailed hawk, barred owl and peregrine falcon that perched on the arms of Sarvey staff in the Council Chambers that afternoon. The Arlington Arts Council’s annual eagle photography contest and nature art show offered area residents an opportunity to engage with wildlife in an entirely different way, which Mike Nordine did by sculpting an eagle statue out of old auto parts and other scrap metals. “It started when my daughter wanted me to make a penguin,” said Nordine, who’s been scrap-metal sculpting for 15 years. “I never quite know what I’ll do next, because I never work it out or write it down before I put it together.” Roberta Baker of the Arlington Arts See EAGLE, PAGE 2

SCHOOLS: Annual event raises awareness, support for American Cancer Society. Page 8

ARLINGTON — Kent Prairie Elementary celebrated its champions with the Olympics-themed return of its PTA’s 12th annual fundraising carnival on Friday, Feb. 10. Just as the hallways of the school bore the flags of many nations, and visiting kids were given an opportunity to be photographed with gold-colored medals and an American flag, so too was the usual selection of kids’ favorite games and activities presented with a more Olympics-flavored flair. Kim Hahn served as chair of this year’s Kent Prairie PTA carnival and estimated that as many as 1,500 children attended that evening, with families in tow, to be served by a volunteer crew of about 100 school staff members, parents and other community members. “We’ve had help from the high school Honor Society and JROTC,” said Mary Levesque, secretary for the event. “A lot of middle school students have also pitched in.” Dionne King, treasurer for the event, didn’t have final totals available by the end of evening, but she noted that the PTA usually raises thousands of dollars through the carnival, which in turn go toward

CARNIVAL FROM PAGE 1

“Our local businesses are very generous,” said King, who noted that the silent auction, the cake walk and the food lines for pizza, popcorn, cotton candy and soda are also money-generating crowd draws year after year. Walt Tungat has been bringing his family to the carnival since his oldest child was a Kent Prairie student. The oldest is now 18, but Walt’s 9-year-old son Hunter and 8-year-old daughter Tanaya are still enrolled at the school, so he’s continued to turn out for the carnival each year. “I have friends in Marysville who say their schools don’t have anything like this,” Walt Tungat said.

“I always get to meet new people here, and bid on cool stuff like sporting trips to see the Silvertips or the Seahawks.” Like their dad, Hunter and Tanaya also enjoy the opportunity afforded by the carnival to meet new people their own age, although they also expressed enthusiasm for the indoor bouncy house in the school gym. Tanner Tungat is 14 years old and attending Arlington High School, but he still returned to his old alma mater, claiming he didn’t want his dad to feel alone. “It’s weird seeing all my old teachers here,” Tanner Tungat said. “You can see everybody getting older. I

remember them looking way younger.” For 7-year-old Lily Jeffrey, this year marked her second Kent Prairie carnival, and she insisted that dad David and mom Dinnette come check it out, if only because she spent two days in class helping decorate the school. “This is a vibrant school,” David Jeffrey said. “I remember being in the last class to graduate from my grade school before they shut it down. They literally closed the doors behind me. Its energy and participation levels were nothing like this.” “It’s fun for the whole family on a cold and rainy night,” Levesque laughed.

EAGLE FROM PAGE 1

“It’s a good way to spend your time, and every once in a while you can make some money at it,” Frazier laughed. “I started out with bird carving, which is always popular, but lately I’ve gotten more into decorative carving, like for household architecture.” Fogdog Gallery also encouraged area residents to celebrate the wild through creative works with a nature poetry contest that owner Claire Cundiff reported had drawn 14 submissions from poets aged 5-72. Not only did Cundiff showcase the poems in the branches of a display tree at Fogdog’s new location on Olympic Avenue, but the first- and second-place winners in the adult and youth entrant categories also received cash prizes, as well as invitations to read their poems during an open mic night at Fogdog on Feb. 23. Studio Tremko also used the Eagle Festival as an occasion to promote their new

location, on West Street in downtown Arlington, as they invited close to 10 fellow chainsaw carvers to mark the annual community event, once again, with live demonstrations of their chainsaw carving artistic skills. “It’s great to get them all down here at once for an afternoon of fun,” said Dave Tremko, co-owner of Studio Tremko. “The public gets great deals on some great art, all well below retail prices, and our carvers get enough money for gas to get back home, to places as far away as Bellingham and Vancouver.” Just as Dave’s wife and Studio Tremko co-owner Debbie had carved an eagle statue for one of the city’s roundabouts in time for the 2011 Eagle Festival, so too was Dave himself able to present a chainsaw-carved sculpture of two eagles, a bear and a stag to the city for another of its roundabouts during this year’s Eagle Festival.

Council proudly touted their 20-entry increase over last year, noting that entrants hailed from Stanwood and Camano Island as well as Arlington. Magnolia Hall hosted not only the art show, but also artist demonstrations which included the work of Donald Frazier, a carver for more than 20 years.

Roy Strotz passes at 73 SILVANA — On Feb. 3, Roy Strotz celebrated his 73rd birthday with family and friends. On Feb. 8, he passed away unexpectedly due to circumstances that have yet to be determined. “We’re still not sure of the details,” said Roy’s daughter, Karen Strotz. “He’d been doing great.” Roy Strotz was well known throughout the Arlington, Silvana and Stanwood communities. Karen estimated that Roy

had helped organize the Silvana Fair for the past 40 of its 64 years. “This will be a huge loss for the fair,” Karen Strotz said. Roy Strotz will be remembered at Silvana Fire Station 94, located at 2720 212th St. NW in Stanwood, starting at 1 p.m. on Feb. 18. Parking shuttles will be available to transport mourners from the Silvana Peace Lutheran Church to the fire station for the ceremony.

Who needs CT buses?

ow necessary is public transportation? If you flunk your vision test when applying for a driver’s license, absolutely necessary. If you’re a student commuting from affordable housing to college, very essential. If driving a private car isn’t an option for any of a hundred other reasons, you need buses. Community Transit is set for a new round of service changes beginning the 20th of February. As always, budget-conscious changes hit low-ridership routes hardest so that high density routes might be served better. To see how North County’s routes are affected, check CT’s route book at any Sno-Isle library branch. Funding of public transportation is all screwed up. Bus systems must ante up one dollar for every federal dollar while the highway agency that supports car-commuters puts up only 25 cents. Federal money is earmarked for new buses only and can’t be used to cover expenses though much of the recent pinch resulted from inflated fuel costs, medical coverage and maintenance. KOMO jolted riders in January of 2010 by announcing that CT was threatening massive changes including fare hikes and service cuts. With tax-based support in jeopardy, CT was facing an $11 million shortfall. Bus budgeteers proposed eliminating Sunday service, cutting selected routes and charging an additional 25 cents per ticket, all effective in June. Ouch. When June came, CT slashed service by 20 percent, or 80,000 hours of bus service. Evening hours were chopped to hold onto hightraffic commuter routes. Each cut hurt riders, especially people living near the fringes of bus service. Rural service felt the axe first. Cuts to service moved forward on the first day of September. Riders braced themselves for longer waits and fewer trips. Others were left to ponder how to get from Point A

OPINION

Bob Graef

to Point B when Point A or Point B had disappeared from CT’s map. While population soared, regional bus service regressed to what it was eight years before. Local bus service was cut because Community Transit lacked the funds to retain all of its routes and schedules. Conventional thinking says the transit agency must live within its revenue structure or shut down. Conventional critics ask, why shouldn’t bus service live by the same economics that dictate survival of businesses? Supporters claim that public transportation is a vital organ of any society and that if it is underfunded, then something’s wrong with both its revenue structure and the social values that define it. CT depends on sales tax for two-thirds of its operating budget. If CT hadn’t already maxed out its own taxing authority, it might have covered shortfalls by issuing bonds. With income from sales tax down to 80 percent, relief is not in sight. Yet when it’s critical to get people to work, we curtailed the transportation system that connects homes with jobs. Yes, there is something the matter with this picture. If the income of a dairy farm doesn’t cover expenses the cows still must be milked. So it is with bus fleets that get people to work. With the economy still in the doldrums, people still must be transported to jobs, shopping and medical services. Cutting them off from earning and spending money is a sure way to deepen a recession. It happens, in part, because too many of those who fund and plan bus service have made the personal choice to depend totally on cars. Cost factors like $20 per day to

park in Seattle suggest that public transport will become the peoplemover of choice with private cars filling the gaps. When numbercrunchers add all the costs of driving in car-addicted America, they find two groups of costs. First are private costs: cost of the vehicle, maintenance and service, fuel, tolls, license and insurance. Then come social costs that can’t be measured in direct exchange of money: lost productivity while stuck in traffic, health costs from breathing polluted air, toxic runoff from roadways, spills in waterways and loss of the nation’s capital to oil-exporting nations. Private costs vary around $59 billion while social costs total somewhere in the neighborhood of $125 billion. About $56 billion is charged against health damage due to air pollution. These figures are, at best, approximations since it is impossible to draw a fine line between health effects of auto exhausts and other sources of pollution. While results of different studies come up with wildly different numbers, they are consistent in pegging the costs to society from private cars significantly higher than private owners’ costs. Add the insanity of gridlocked daily commutes. Count the hours wasted during slow-downs and stoppages. Measure the acreages dedicated to driving and parking cars. We accept all that because it’s part of our culture. But alien visitors looking down on us from on high would rightfully think we’re crazy. The problem is that today’s transportation priorities reflect yesterday’s realities, not current or future realities or needs. To get in tune with the needs of the times we need to bend. Maybe this recession was needed to help us understand that the future should necessarily look very different from the past. Comments may be addressed to robertgraef@comcast.net.

Families welcome home Healy crewmembers

SEATTLE — The Coast Guard icebreaker Healy’s return to its home-port on Sunday, Feb. 5, marked not only the end of a cruise that saw the ship’s crew performing an essential service for one of America’s northernmost cities, but also the homecoming of its three Marysville crew members. The Healy had left Seattle on May 27 of last year and was originally scheduled to return in time for the holidays, before Alaska’s U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski requested assistance from the Coast Guard to escort a fuel tanker to Nome. For Petty Officer First Class John B. Carter II, a kitchen manager and crew-member on board the Healy since 1995 who’s served in the U.S. Coast Guard for 21 years, this made for his longest tour of duty yet. “Eight months was the longest he was gone before,” said Heidi Carter, John’s wife, with whom he moved to Marysville in 2004. Heidi has been raising their daughter Ashley, a 17-year-old senior at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, and 2-year-old son J.R. in John’s absence. “The fact that this was so last-minute made it especially hard.” The double-hulled Russian ice

class tanker Renda was delivering more than a million gallons of diesel vehicle fuel and 300,000 gallons of gasoline, but in spite of being certified to travel through four feet of ice, the fuel delivery that was expected around Jan. 7 didn’t reach Nome until Jan. 14, even with the Healy clearing the way for the Renda through the Bering Sea ice for 800 miles. Nome Mayor Denise Michels emphasized the importance of fuel shipments to the city, whose lack of outside road connections makes it dependent on marine vessels or aircraft for its shipments of goods. Nome had already missed a November delivery of 1.6 million gallons of fuel due to a storm last fall, and was increasingly reliant upon vehicles for transportation within the city as winter weather made walking prohibitively difficult. “We have the option to fly fuel in for $3 a gallon, but we’re already paying $6 a gallon for it now,” Michels said. “That impacts our budget, as city staff have to drive vehicles to get anywhere they’re going and the roads need to be cleared for ambulances. All our budget projections are based on the fuel price staying stable through the winter.” Michels expressed her gratitude to the crew of the Healy — includ-

ing John B. Carter II and his fellow Marysville crew-members, Miguel Uribarri and Nicolas Orozco, both petty officers first class — for sacrificing their holidays with their families. Although the Carters have put the rest of their decorations away, they kept their artificial tree up. In the meantime, John and Heidi Carter have both reflected on how odd it’s felt for them for his voyage to be making the news around the world. “It’s kind of weird for me, because this is what the Coast Guard does all the time,” John B. Carter II said. “We help people, so for me, it’s just part of my job.” “I’ve had Sunday dinners with the kids at the Buzz Inn and seen his story appear on their TVs,” Heidi Carter said. “I would hear people at the other tables talking about it, so I’d start talking to them.” The Carters agreed that being apart for so long has been the hardest part of his mission, but beyond that, John expressed his feelings simply. “It’s been kind of boring for me,” John B. Carter II said via email, prior to pulling into port at Dutch Harbor in Nome. “I just would like to get this mission done.” After clearing the ice around the emptied Renda for its return

Carter II and Nicolas Orozco were part of the crew of the Cutter Healy’s escort of a fuel tanker to Nome, Alaska. voyage on Jan. 20, the Healy left Nome on Jan. 21, but missed its estimated dock date of Jan. 30 in Seattle, extending its patrol to 254 days after diverting to assist a distressed vessel approximately 520 miles northwest of Puget Sound. “From marine research in the Arctic, to breaking 800 miles of ice to get fuel to Nome, Alaska, to search and rescue in 30-foot seas, the crew superbly displayed the multi-mission capability of the

Coast Guard Cutter Healy,” said Rear Adm. Christopher Colvin, Deputy Commander, Coast Guard Pacific Area. “We ask a lot of our crews, and their families, and they all demonstrate excellence. This is our way.” “John always feels bad about being away, but he can’t help it,” Heidi Carter said. “He doesn’t have any control over it. I’m proud of him, but I’ve missed him and I just want him home.”

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.

Arlington High School boys basketball players, coaches and honorary coaches, the latter made up of cancer survivors and caregivers, show off their pink T-shirts for the American Cancer Society on Feb. 3.

Coaches vs. Cancer

Annual event raises awareness, support for American Cancer Society BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

ARLINGTON — Although they were edged out 64-57 by Stanwood on the evening of Friday, Feb. 3, the Arlington High School boys basketball team came away winners in the ongoing fight against cancer, as they helped raise $1,254 for the American Cancer Society through the “Coaches vs. Cancer” game that evening. After the introduction of a host of honorary team

coaches for the event, who were either cancer survivors or caregivers to those who have suffered from cancer, the Arlington boys took to the court wearing light pink T-shirts in honor of the American Cancer Society, and even after they removed those shirts to wear their team jerseys, they kept on the hot pink socks they’d all donned for the cause as well. For Nick Brown, coach of the AHS boys basketball team, and his wife

Caryn, this cause carries a personal significance, although they were quick to emphasize that it’s not just about them. According to Nick Brown, he’d already been looking for ways to “be a better man” when the opportunity to take part in “Coaches vs. Cancer” first came about for Arlington three years ago. What started as an attempt at some selfless charity became, by Nick’s admission, “a bit selfish” in December of 2009, when Caryn was diagnosed with breast cancer. “I don’t know that I deserve to be labeled a ‘caregiver,’” Nick Brown

said. “I’d just call it being a husband.” “I’ve learned that there’s really no way to prepare for cancer treatment,” said Caryn Brown, who had no family history of cancer, but nonetheless had to undergo surgery as well as chemotherapy and radiation. “Everyone’s body is different, so there is no typical experience. However, one thing I think is true for everyone diagnosed with cancer is they go through a roller-coaster ride of emotion from the time cancer is suspected to the end of the long treatment, and in the weeks and months that follow.”

The Browns expressed gratitude to family, friends, students, school staff and the surrounding community for serving as their support system, and cited such support systems as an essential part of the healing process for all those whose lives have been touched by cancer. “We consider these young men part of our family,” Caryn Brown said of the AHS boys basketball players. “They’ve been by our side since the moment I received my diagnosis. These boys have seen me bald and sick, and have seen our family struggle as we had to fight our battle.

They’ve seen firsthand what someone goes through when fighting cancer, and the ‘Coaches vs. Cancer’ game is a way to bring awareness to the community about the importance of continually fighting this disease.” “She’s always been close to the team,” Nick Brown said of his wife. “They all look up to her. We got a number of comments from the Stanwood folks who came to check out the game about how good our student body was. These kids care about other people, and so does this community.”

Arlington boy gives $100 prize to friend ARLINGTON — Christian Waldall, a 12-year-old Arlington boy, not only won the half-court shot at the Arlington High School basketball game on Thursday, Feb. 2, but he also took the $100 prize from Arlington Physical Therapy, which sponsored the half-court shot contest, and gave it to his football teammate and friend Gabe Green. “The crowd went wild when I made the shot,” Waldall said. “I was pretty excited myself.” Arlington Physical Therapy contacted

Waldall to offer him his winning check, but he wanted to give it to the Green family, which is going on a mission trip at the end of the month. “I went home and prayed about what I wanted to do with my money, and God told me I should give it to people who will use it for the greater good,” Waldall said. Waldall presented the certificate to Gabe Green on Feb. 8. When asked if he would try to make the half-court shot again, he said, “No, I would probably let someone else give it a try.”

Norovirus identified as cause for hundreds becoming ill at state cheer meet the flu-like symptoms exhibited by the Marysville cheerleaders, while Lakewood High School Principal Dale Leach is not aware of any Lakewood cheerleaders either attending the event or suffering any symptoms. The number of people reporting they suffered vomiting and diarrhea during the event or in the days after is now 229. At least 33 have reported seeking medical care, though there have been no overnight hospital admissions. The numbers are expected to grow as state health officials receive answers from surveys that were sent to participants and families. The Washington State Department of Health is leading the disease investigation, work-

ing with local health partners and the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association, which sponsored the event. As part of the investigation, questionnaires were sent to participants and their families, and stool samples were collected for testing, whose results confirmed norovirus. About 3,000 people attended the event and more than 1,000 competed. According to Snohomish Health District officials, it appears that some athletes arrived to the event already ill. Janitorial crews were called to clean up vomit from the floors of a restroom and the adjacent concourse walkway prior to the event’s awards ceremony on Feb. 4. Those sites are considered

likely exposure sites for the cheer and dance teams. Health District officials reported that the Comcast Arena is being cleaned for public use and entertainment under direction from Comcast management, and that management is cooperating fully with the illness investigation. On Health District recommendations, arena staff began cleaning and sanitizing the building and food preparation areas on Feb. 6. The city of Everett also tested the drinking water supply to the arena. It proved to be safe, ruling out the public drinking water supply as a source of the causative disease organism. Epidemiologists had believed the illness was caused by a Norwalk-like virus because so

many patients experienced severe vomiting and diarrhea in a short span of time, and because of the 24- to 48-hour duration of the illness. To reduce the spread of the illness, they advise close attention to thorough hand washing with hot water and soap, and immediate sanitizing of contaminated surfaces and clothing with bleach solution. People whose symptoms extend beyond 48 hours should beware of dehydration and should seek the care of a medical provider. For updates about issues affecting the health of the community, check the Snohomish Health District website at www.snohd.org. Call 425-339-5278 with questions about communicable diseases.

OLYMPIA — Testing at the state Public Health Laboratories confirms that norovirus caused hundreds of illnesses during and after the Feb. 4 state high school cheerleading tournament in Everett. Norovirus is typically transmitted person-to-person. Jodi Runyon of the Marysville School District confirmed that five students on the 15-member Marysville-Pilchuck High School cheerleading team were among the 19 cheer squads, out of the 45 squads in the competition at the Comcast Arena, whose onset of symptoms reportedly began on Feb. 5 and 6. Arlington Cheer Advisor Brooke Dalgaard reported that none of her cheerleaders have experienced

Marysville teachers Hope sponsors bill to create local jobs hit the streets to protest budget cuts This action was previously scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 18, to raise public awareness during the legislative session, but was rescheduled due to snow closures.

erty tax exemption for new manufacturing businesses, as long as they meet certain criteria under this proposed state law. For businesses to qualify for this tax exemption, it would require them to create a minimum of 25 family living wage jobs within one year of building completion. “This bill is a real opportunity for our state Legislature to act decisively in favor of local job creation,” Nehring said. Since the tax break would only apply to new or expanded businesses, the current tax structure would not be changed and it would not impact current tax revenue. “Schools, fire departments and other necessary public facilities would continue to

be funded at their current levels,” Hope said. “Meanwhile, the tax exemption for new construction will make the difference between a business coming to our district or going somewhere else.” Additional stipulations attached to HB 2722 would ensure that environmental

protections run concurrent with business development throughout the district. A population requirement of at least 50,000 people alongside a stipulation mandating that unused or underdeveloped industrial-zoned land will help ensure sustainability for the next generation.

MARYSVILLE — The shortened school day on Thursday, Feb. 16, will see Marysville School District teachers taking to the streets to direct the public’s attention to state budget cuts such as those that have already necessitated such furloughs. Students will be released from school three hours early that day, and their teachers will be taking time off without pay shortly after those students are dismissed. All teachers will be off work by about 11:30 a.m., and the Marysville Education Association has asked them to gather at specific intersections along State Avenue between 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., to wear red and hold signs focusing attention on the proposed state budget cuts. A statement released by the office of Marysville S chool District Superintendent Dr. Larry Nyland noted that this furlough day is a result of the 1.9 percent salary reduction imposed by the state Legislature, and added that the Marysville School District has made $21 million in cuts over the past four years. Cuts proposed by the governor for next year would require another $6 million in cuts to the Marysville School District, which its officials have pointed out would impact property-poor districts such as Marysville much more than richer school districts. Nyland and Marysville Education Association President Arden Watson reiterated that teachers would remain in their classrooms and continue to teach their students until school is dismissed for the day, and emphasized that all teachers, administrators and support staff who participate in this event will be doing so voluntarily and on their own unpaid time. Administrators and classified support staff may take their lunch time or request leave time off to join the event.

MARYSVILLE — State Rep. Mike Hope is sponsoring House Bill 2772 to encourage new manufacturing businesses and help create jobs while protecting the environment, which dovetails with Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring’s plans of establishing a manufacturing and light industrial center in north Marysville. “Currently, over 1,000 acres of real estate in Marysville sits empty, awaiting businesses to come and build and attract new revenue,” said Hope. “Unfortunately, Marysville, and other cities like it, lacks the adequate tools to encourage new businesses and job growth in this economic recession.” HB 2722 was written to help create a 10-year prop-

‘Beauty and the Beast’ comes Marysville Parks presents ‘Dog Days, Raven Nights’ to Arlington in March “Mr. Moberly and Mr. McGee really click together,” added AHS senior Josiah Miller, who has been cast in one of the lead roles as the Beast. “They both have very high expectations for this show, and their vision for the production is so consistent that rehearsals are not only fun, but we are learning every day.” Moberly has always focused on challenging students to learn the craft of theater and to come together to create quality productions. “We’ve set the bar pretty high for our musicals,” Moberly said. “The community has come to expect something far above the average high school production, and I’m confident they won’t be disappointed this year. The cast has a large number of seniors with many years of both musical and Jazzmine credits on their resumes.” Playing opposite Miller

will be junior Bailey Hudson as Belle, and rounding out the leads will be seniors Justin O’Hara as Gaston, Austin McFadden as Lumiere, Nathan Haskew as Cogsworth, Andrew Clark as Maurice, Kelsey Ghirardo as Madame Grand Bouche and Lexi Lewis as Mrs. Potts. They’ll be joined by an ensemble group of students whom Moberly described as equally strong. “I couldn’t ask for a better way to end my years in the Drama Department,” said AHS senior Megan Birdsong, concluding her fourth year as stage manager. “Beauty and the Beast” will start at 7 p.m. on the Friday and Saturday nights of March 2, 3, 9 and 10, with a 1 p.m. matinee on March 10, at the Byrnes Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $8 for children, students and seniors, and $12 for adults, and may be purchased in advance at www.byrnesperformingarts.org.

ARLINGTON — The Arlington High School Drama Department has promised to present some extraordinary performances during the first two weekends in March, when the Linda M. Byrnes Performing Arts Center hosts the musical “Beauty and the Beast.” The show will feature sets and costumes from a professional stage company, along with a variety of special effects designed to dazzle, while the music, which is already familiar to several generations who have grown up with the classic Disney animated version of the tale, will be sung by a talented group of students under the direction of the newest addition to the AHS Arts program, Brent McGee. “Working with Brent McGee is an incredible experience,” AHS Drama teacher Scott Moberly said. “He is extremely positive and brings a great energy to every rehearsal.”
