Sheldon gives State of the Tribes address BY KIRK BOXLEITNER


TULALIP — As the Tulalip Boys & Girls Club celebrated the impending 20th anniversary of the Boys & Girls Clubs partnering with all Native American tribes, National Boys & Girls Clubs President and CEO James Clark visited the Tulalip Boys & Girls Club on Tuesday, Feb. 21, to report that the club will become a living example for new Boys & Girls Clubs on tribal lands across the state. The Tulalip Boys & Girls Club is currently the only Native American club in Washington state. It’s one of 200 Native American clubs nationwide, and in 1997, the Tulalip Boys & Girls Club became the sixth club in the country to open on

a reservation. Clark’s Feb. 21 visit to the Tulalip Boys & Girls Club marked his first official visit to a Native American club. “We serve 4 million kids at 4,000 locations,” Clark said, after playing some pool with a few Tulalip youngsters and checking out the arts and crafts of some others. “This Boys & Girls Club is a model for our clubs throughout Washington.” Native American Outreach Coordinator Michael Tulee is part of the team that will work with the state’s 29 Native American tribes to add two new clubs on their reservations by 2013. “There’s a great deal of need,” Tulee said. “We have to get those tribes the

TULALIP — In his State of the Tribes address for 2012, Tulalip Tribal Chair Mel Sheldon Jr. praised the Tribes’ partnerships, both within the Tribes themselves and with the surrounding community and outside agencies, as key to its sustained success in the face of ongoing economic challenges. “We approached 2011 recognizing that economic recovery represented a huge challenge,” Sheldon said to the Greater Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce on Friday, Feb. 24. “Patience is a virtue, and there’s value in pragmatism, so we’re

approaching 2012 with that same cautious optimism.” Although Sheldon acknowledged that his address would be light on numbers, he nonetheless noted that the Tulalip Tribes comprise the third largest employer in Snohomish County, and added that they’re meeting their first quarter projections for this year. He listed plaudits earned by the Tulalip Resort Hotel and Casino, including its recent “Four Diamond” designation by AAA, at the same time that he emphasized that the Tribes still have to work within an achievable, prioritized budget. To that end, Sheldon said that

Tribal Board members have taken several trips to Olympia and Washington, D.C., to lobby for education and police funding. Just as the Tribes are asking for state and federal government support, Sheldon likewise believes that the $120 million a year in wages paid by Quil Ceda Village are contributing to an economic engine for the region, beyond the borders of the reservation. “Most of that money stays in the local area,” said Sheldon, who expects that Cabela’s will open its currently under construction store between Quil SEE TRIBES, PAGE 2

At their store in Lacey, they’re having a hard time getting customers to get out,” he laughed. Not only are the Seattle Premium Outlets north of the Tulalip Resort Hotel and Casino adding more than 90,000 square feet of store space, along with their parking lot expansion, but Sheldon reported that the hotel is meeting, and even exceeding, the occupancy rates for Seattle hotels during the weekdays. “People aren’t just coming here for gaming,” Sheldon said. “They’re also going shopping. They want to see historic Marysville, and to get to know our area better.” Sheldon didn’t hesitate to list the benefits of gaming, though, including the funds that it’s raised for area service organizations through the “Tulalip Raising Hands” program, as well as the social services that it’s funded for Tribal members, from health and elder care to infrastructure and emergency responders, that have made their mission of selfgovernance possible.

“We’re on this journey together, and there’s room in the canoe for all of us. If we paddle in the right direction, this will be a place where our kids will want to grow up.” Mel Sheldon Jr. Tulalip Tribal Chair “More than 300 organizations received funds from Raising Hands last year,” said Sheldon, who also pointed out that 70 percent of the Tribes’ workforce is made up of non-Tribal members. “This year, we hope to provide $3 million in funds.” Sheldon singled out the Tulalip Boys & Girls Club for praise, identifying it as a positive influence on Tribal youth who, like many young people elsewhere, are at risk because of drugs. “We have a drug problem, like many other communities,” said Sheldon, who cited the Tribes’ building of a treatment and recovery center with gaming proceeds as evidence of Tribal members’ commitment to “supporting those who are addicted and changing their lives.” Sheldon commended Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring and his City Council for fostering good government-togovernment relations, and credited Everett Mayor

CLUB FROM PAGE 1 information they need to make informed decisions. It’s a delicate dance. There’s no one tribe of which it’s more true, but there are high levels of unemployment, alcohol and drug use, and high school dropouts on many reservations. These tribes are already aware of this. The Boys & Girls Clubs are designed to address those needs, and to lessen and counteract negative impacts on children.” Tulee noted that Boys & Girls Clubs emphasize not only academics and athletics, but also cultural and social sensitivity and understanding. Although these clubs would be located on

reservations, Tulee emphasized that they would serve children regardless of their backgrounds, including non-Native Americans. “We know the Boys & Girls Clubs work,” Tulee said. “When people look at this club, they see positive energy and highly professional people who are there for these kids.” Clark agreed that the staff of the Tulalip Boys & Girls Club has created a nurturing, caring environment for children, as they’ve provided a place for youth to eat, study and play. “It’s not the physical space, but what goes on in it that matters,” Clark said. “This staff works day in and day out to inspire these kids. We’re privileged to have this club here in

Tulalip.” Tulalip Tribal Board member Don Hatch Jr., a former Marysville School Board member who’s been involved in the Tulalip Boys & Girls Club for many years, was more blunt in his praise for the club, as he credited it with keeping many young people off the streets, with resources ranging from a gym and a cafeteria to computer labs. “It’s been medicine for this community,” Hatch said. “I’m willing to go to the other tribes to sell them on the Boys & Girls Clubs. We worked on this from the ground up, and we hit bumps in the road, but we made it through. I can’t say enough about how much the Boys & Girls Clubs take care of the children.”

Ray Stephanson and his City Council for the parts they’ve played in bringing about the water pipeline that Sheldon expects will supply residential and commercial water to the Tribes for at least the next 70 years. He described Marysville School District Superintendent Dr. Larry Nyland as “a true soldier of leadership in tough times,” and expressed pride that Tulalip Tribal member Wendy Fryberg serves on Nyland’s Board of Directors. “As we look to future economic conditions, our Board is considering whether to add an events center, or additional conference room space,” Sheldon said. “We’re continuing to work to turn what were once our dreams into reality. We’re on this journey together, and there’s room in the canoe for all of us. If we paddle in the right direction, this will be a place where our kids will want to grow up.”

Marysville’s Ken Baxter passes at 83

MARYSVILLE — Longtime local resident Ken Baxter, for whom the city of Marysville’s Ken Baxter Community Center was named, passed away at the age of 83 on Monday, Feb. 20. Marianne Powers, Baxter’s youngest daughter, explained that a viewing of Baxter’s body will take place at the Schaefer-Shipman Funeral Home, located at 804 State Ave. in Marysville, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, March 1. The Marysville Church of the Nazarene, located at 8240 64th St. NE, will serve as the site for Baxter’s funeral and memorial on Friday, March 2, starting at 1 p.m. “We’ve been going through all the newspaper articles about Dad, and there’s so many, going all the way back to the 1950s,” Powers said of her father, who served as a firefighter for 31 years and as a member of the Marysville City Council for 26 years. “He was a race car driver, a member of the Coast Guard and a boater. He was born in Langley, but he’d lived in Marysville since forever.” Powers noted the number of local businesses that Baxter had owned, including his auto repair and glass supply shops, and joined city of Marysville Recreation Coordinator Maryke Burgess in recalling Baxter’s ritual of morning coffee at the Flapjack restaurant with his friends. “He took a real interest

in me and this place when I started working here 10 years ago,” said Burgess, who works out of the Ken Baxter Community Center. “It’s unusual to name a building like this after a living person, but it was great that our namesake could stop by. He cared about what happened here. He wanted to make sure this center was serving seniors and the community.” According to Burgess, she and Baxter shared many morning conversations together at the center, after his regular breakfasts at the Flapjack, and she considers herself fortunate to have received the insights of his experiences as a local busi-

His interest in this city didn’t just end with his time on the Council.”

Marilyn Kathryn (Jensen) Lane





M a r i ly n K a t h r y n (Jensen) Lane joined the Lord Jesus Christ on February 14, 2012 after a 13 year battle with dementia/ Alzheimer’s. Marilyn was born in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, April 2, 1939 to Art and Maxine Jensen. The family later moved to Darrington, Snohomish and Marysville. Marilyn, graduated from Marysville High School where she was student body president and participated in music and other extracurricular activities. She graduated in education from Western Washington University and did graduate studies at the University of Washington. Marilyn taught in Everett, Sumner and Kent. Marilyn married Larry Lane in 1961 at Our Saviors Lutheran Church in Everett. Over the years they resided in Marysville, Puyallup and Kent. After retirement, they split their time between Fountain Hills, Arizona and Lake Goodwin, Washington. She enjoyed both downhill and cross country skiing, as well as roller skating and hiking. Marilyn played the piano, and was a church organist. She taught Sunday school and especially enjoyed bringing God’s word to young children. For several years, Marilyn was a caregiver for her mother, Maxine.

She spent many years in Bible Study Fellowship in Everett and Kent. She enjoyed being a student, an instructor, and valued the friendships she developed through the years. She went to Israel twice on study missions with instructors and friends. In 2000, she followed Apostle Paul’s Missionary Travels through Greece and Turkey. She was a member of Anchor of Hope Community Church (a Church of Lutheran Brethren) in Stanwood and Christ’s Church in Fountain Hills, Arizona. Marilyn loved to dance both in college and after. She enjoyed folk dancing in Arizona, especially at Christian Jewish Passover celebrations. Marilyn loved being a member of Arcadian’s Ballroom Dancing group in the Seattle area. More than all of her various travels and activities, the thing that brought her the most joy in life was her relationship with God, her family and grandchildren. Marilyn often said at family

gatherings, “Oh good, all of my favorite people are here.” Even in the late stages of her disease, she was known to say this as family came to visit her. Children had a special place in her heart, as when the grandchildren hugged and kissed Marilyn, she would light up like no other time. Her family will remember her for her spontaneous and adventurous spirit and the one who encourage them to go for their dreams. We will miss her dearly. Marilyn is survived by Larry her husband of nearly 51 years; son David (Ann) Lane of Chicago; daughter Shelley (Tom) Hutley of Ridgefield, Washington; daughter Cathy (Ken) Johnson of Mount Vernon, Washington, and grandchildren; Julianne and Jonathan Hutley, and Tyler Lane. She is also survived by her brother George (Janice) Jensen of Burley, Idaho. The family would like to thank Quil Ceda Creek Manor in Marysville for their loving affection and the care they provided to Marilyn these last years as Alzheimer’s took its toll. A celebration of Marilyn’s life will be held at 3 pm on March 3 at Marysville United Methodist Church, 5600 64th St. NE, Marysville, WA. In lieu of f lowers, memorials can be given to Guide Dogs for the Blind, PO Box 151200, San Rafael, CA 94915-1200.

Protect your access to public notices


itizens should be aware of — and opposed to — House Bill 2801 and the provisions that would allow local governments to cease publishing public notices in their local newspapers. The presumed cost savings to local government is in fact false economy — there is a hidden and very dangerous cost. In trying to save money, local governments would curtail access to the legislative process, and ensure that fewer — rather than more — citizens know what their representatives are up to. The publishing of public notices in newspapers of record dates to 1789, when the first Congress required publication of its bills, orders, resolutions and votes in at least three generally available newspapers. The founders recognized that government should not be the gatekeepers of its own information. So their purpose was to require government to report its actions to citizens in a medium independent of government influence or control: the newspaper. It was good policy then, and it remains good policy today. Publishing legal notices in a newspaper of record ensures that decisions related to public debt, ordinances and laws, zoning, taxation and quality of life — all matters of compelling and perpetual public interest — are made with transparency. Legal notices empower the public to get involved in the process. And they contribute to a reservoir of archived material in a form that cannot be altered, changed, hacked, hidden or manipulated after the fact. This would simply not be true of notices published exclusively online. In publishing public notices in newspapers of record, local government acknowledges that government itself carries the burden of keeping citizens informed, and that it will not shift that burden to the citizens themselves to go hunting for information. To that end, the local, general-interest newspaper remains the vehicle with the widest reach to the widest cross-section of the community. And we can prove it.

Two windows on the world A ny WINCO shopper understands that a lot of people from far places now call Marysville and Arlington home. They’ve become our neighbors but we don’t know much about their homelands, strange-sounding languages or cultures they left behind. Curiosity about such things makes me travel. So many places to visit and so little time. I try to leave home with a head full of questions about new destinations, hoping they might shed light on issues that plague our planet. It happens that after time away, I return home with even more questions. Though every part of the earth is no more than a day’s flight away, flying is so pricey that I can afford only a few weeks overseas each year. That’s not much time for exercising global questions. What to do? Newspapers help but there happen to be other closer-tohome ways than overseas travel for checking out what’s going on around the globe. First are international film festivals that pull together documentaries and feature films produced in upwards of a hundred nations. A lot of them don’t make the cut but those that do are good indicators of how other people think and are concerned about. Whisking from one foreign film to the next is a bit like riding a magic carpet from one culture to another. Seattle has an outstanding international film festival and even Everett has started its own. Personally, I much prefer the



one in Palm Springs. Known as PSIF, It fills the first full week of January which gives a welcome respite from the PNW’s wintry chill. And it’s not jammed into a downtown environment. One of PSIF’s best documentaries for 2011 showed the new president of the Maldives, a tiny island nation with an average elevation of 1.5 meters, single-handedly changing the direction of the Copenhagen conference on global warming. As to creative feature films, my vote went to Argentina for a pair of winners. One was set in mountainous cattle country in the far south and the other was filmed almost entirely in the cab of a logging truck. No use describing them. You have to see them yourself to appreciate the quality and sensitivity of foreign filmmakers. It was disappointing to witness the growing sexual sleaziness among trendy European film makers. They’ve taken to tossing in garment-rending, groping, nothing-left-to-the-imagination preliminaries to, yup, there they go again. The almost identical scene was played out in three otherwise worthwhile films. It was rather like directors of action films competing for mayhem and explosion honors. But again, even the sleaze told of what’s happening on the other side of the Atlantic. Yuck.

Another documentary showed Donald Trump being somewhat humbled when his bulldozer approach to planting a resort on pristine Scottish coastland ran into opposition. I surprised myself by getting caught up in a bio-pic that followed the life and career of Diana Vreeland, editor of Harpers and Vogue. The ladies in our group had to drag me to that showing because a guy like me shouldn’t spend time on an editor of fashion magazines. Surprise! Vreeland proved to be totally fascinating, bigger than life, one of a kind visionary with enough charisma to supercharge everyone who worked with her. Film festivals are full of surprises. The other window on the world is found at Whistler Mountain, north of Vancouver, B.C. While Vancouver is rightly called the Pacific Coast’s foremost melting pot, Whistler is even more so. Time was when Whistler catered to lilly-white PNW skiers, largely Norwegians and descendants of other European skiing cultures. That was a time of White supremacy when the up-scale earning power of Whites let them monopolize pricey pastimes like skiing and golf and yachting. I’ve been managing to make low-budget trips to Whistler for thirty nears now, and oh my, how it’s changed. Last month I helped guide a couple’s new Mercedes into a parking garage slot under Whistler’s Cascade Lodge where I enjoy special rates. They said SEE WINDOWS, PAGE 5

NOTICES FROM PAGE 4 newspaper organizations around the state maintain commensurately broad distribution within their own communities. This is not “theoretical” reach, a “potential” audience that may or may not find its way to notices posted on a government website. This is actual reach, to readers who are active and interested and engaged in the community around them — and most certainly in local government affairs. Not all citizens have computers, or smartphones, and not all have access to the web. Indeed, there are cost barriers to entry into, and participation in, today’s world of digital communication. But anyone — everyone — can at any time go down to the public library or the coffee shop, pick up the community newspaper and find out through the public notices what their government is up to. Affordable, egalitarian and very popular, general interest newspapers provide pre-

It seems only yesterday that Mao’s cultural warriors sent educated Chinese into the country for “re-education.” And now Whistler is all but overrun by Asian capitalists living the good life.


cisely what government needs most — a direct and demonstrable conduit to its citizens. This issue really comes down to a philosophical question: Should government take its information to the people, or should government make the people come looking for that information, through a maze of agency and departmental websites? We believe — and we are confident Washington citizens agree — that government at all levels has an affirmative obligation to take its information to the people — to make that extra effort, to ensure that public notices are not just “available,” but also widely seen and widely read. House Bill 2801 flouts that obligation, and it should be rejected. The Legislature had the wisdom to dismiss similar legislation last session, and should demonstrate that same wisdom today. Contact Scott Frank, Managing Editor of The Arlington Times and The Marysville Globe, via email at or phone at 360-649-1300.

While films at the Palm Springs festival portray life and conditions of a crosssection of society, Whistler is largely a playground for one-percenters. Having once been voted the top ski destination in the world, jet-setters flood to its posh hotels and pricey bistros. Meanwhile, we representatives of local color get to share slopes with the rich and famous. It’s one thing for filmmakers to display the reality of homelands where average

annual wages are less than $2,000. It is quite another to rub shoulders with travelers from those same places spending the same amount for a week of skiing. The lesson learned was that no matter how gross income inequality may be in the United States, there are third-world places where it is even worse.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Support the Lakewood School District levies We are writing today to urge voters in the Lakewood School District to vote “YES” on April 17 for the Replacement School Programs and Operation Levy and the Capital Projects and Technology Levy. As taxpayers and employees of the Lakewood School District we would like to share why we are planning on voting for these two levy propositions. Our three children went through the Lakewood school system and all three had very positive experiences. They had teachers that took the time to know them individually and guide them to reach their full potential. The current and future students of the Lakewood School District need the same opportunity afforded to our children. Given the legislative failure to fully support education in our state, it is unfortunately left to us as citizens to secure the education of our children.

We need to ensure our children continue to receive quality educations by offering quality programs with manageable class sizes that promote student achievement. The Replacement School Programs and Operations Levy helps bridge the gap between what the state provides and what it actually costs to educate our students. It’s important to do the right thing for our future generation, but also for ourselves. Good schools and good communities are a sound investment. Please join us in voting yes on Lakewood’s two propositions that will be on the April 17 ballot. Thank you, Steve and Robin Barker Lakewood

Food Bank thanks community for support Those of us at the Arlington Food Bank wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to all the organizations who were involved in helping us with

our holiday food drive. It was with the assistance of those in the Arlington and Lakewood School Districts and the Arlington Fire Department’s Santa Run, along with considerable support from the food drives at our local grocery stores, that we received substantial food donations which made the holiday food drive a huge success. Overall, our community enabled us to assist more than 300 families for this past holiday season. Your kindness helped so many who have so little. We would also like to convey our appreciation to those who gave a hand in moving the Arlington Food Bank to our temporary building. We could not function as a community service organization without the help of our community. And without everyone’s support, we would not have been nor continue to be successful in helping those in need. Again, we thank you. Dori Spear Food Drive Coordinator Arlington Food Bank

How to write a responsible state budget

ost responsible families live within a budget. Beginning with their income levels, they plan how to pay for bills, such as the mortgage, rent, utility payments, groceries, gasoline, prescription drugs, etc. They prioritize their spending, save money if they are able, and put needs ahead of wants to stay out of financial trouble. They live within their means. Unfortunately, the Legislature has not been as responsible. Wellintentioned people in state government have created program after program, built within the operating budget. If there’s not enough money for these services, majority Democrats in the Legislature have sought more revenue through tax or fee increases to sustain them — or have threatened to decimate the most important functions of government, such as educating kids. While some may argue this is a simplistic view of a complicated issue, it’s essentially why the state budget is having repeated shortfalls. State government has tried to be everything to everyone and the problem has caught up to us. We can no longer afford for the Legislature to overspend and force taxpayers to cover resulting shortfalls — especially in this difficult

economy. Washington has nearly $2 billion more in revenue projected than in the previous budget cycle. And yet in November, the governor said taxpayers must give up another half-billion dollars or she’ll drastically cut government’s most essential services. My House Republican colleagues and I reject budgeting that holds taxpayers hostage. We believe responsible budgeting begins by funding the most important needs first and living within existing revenue. This year, House Republicans crafted a supplemental operating budget based on the “priorities of government” model that former Gov. Gary Locke used nearly 10 years ago. Brought forth in November 2002, Locke said, “We are looking at what matters most to Washington citizens. We are focusing on results that people want and need, prioritizing those results,

and funding those results with the money we have.” House Republicans identified three core services as priorities of government: education, public safety and protection of the state’s most vulnerable citizens. Constitutionally, education is the state’s paramount duty. The state Supreme Court recently ruled the state must “amply provide for the education of all Washington children as the state’s first and highest priority before any other state programs or operations.” We took that seriously and proposed to fund education first in a separate budget as our state’s highest priority. Our education budget would: n Spend $580 million more than the governor on K-12 education — and $375 million more than the House Democrats’ budget proposal; n Fully fund levy equalization for schools in areas with lower property values; n Fund a full 180-day school year; n Maintain current funding for all-day kindergarten; and n Include important reforms and accountability. In contrast, the House Democrats’ budget proposes to delay payment of $405 million to schools until the next budget cycle, including $75

million from levy equalization. This is like floating a check — purchasing something now and hoping you’ll have the money when the next paycheck comes in. But it starts the next budget year almost a half-billion dollars in deficit. A Seattle Times newspaper editorial said, “These are irresponsible stopgap measures.” The House Republican budget also would ensure public safety by: n Funding community supervision without reductions or early release (the House Democrats’ proposal would reduce sex offender supervision from 36 months to 24 months); n Funding gang violence prevention (not in the House Democrats’ budget); and n Providing $37 million more in public safety funding than the House Democrats’ proposal. Taking care of our most vulnerable citizens remains House Republicans’ other priority. Our budget would: n Fully fund critical access hospitals (House Democrats propose a $13.4 million reduction, potentially closing some critical care hospitals in rural areas around the state); n Maintain funding for adult day health services (House Democrats propose a 20 percent cut); n Maintain funding for sup-

ported employment for the developmentally disabled (House Democrats would eliminate state-only employment services); and n Provide $45 million more than the House Democrats’ proposal. There are many differences between the proposals (view them at Most notably is that House Republicans prioritize spending for the most essential services of government ­ placing needs ahead of wants — and eliminating programs that don’t work, are inefficient or are non-essential services. The House Democrat plan also seeks to cut local government funding and provide more local taxing authority — which means probable tax increases at the local level. That’s not responsible budgeting either. House Republicans have shown the Legislature can write a responsible budget by funding the priorities of government — without devastating cuts, without gimmicks, without tax increases, and by living within our means, just as you and your family must do at home.

The suspect was described as a white woman in her late 40s to early 50s, wearing blue jeans and a black wool pea coat, with long, light brown hair with some gray in a ponytail, and likely has brown eyes. She stands between 5 feet, 6 inches tall and 5 feet, 8 inches tall, and weighs 120 pounds. She was

Rampage help raise cancer awareness BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Boys & Girls Club’s basketball court was nearly the site of a come-from-behind victory on Sunday, Feb. 26, as the ABA Washington Rampage recovered from a nearly twoto-one point deficit to the Pro Sport Assassins to come within four points of their score by the final buzzer. While the Assassins still edged out the Rampage by 118114 in the end, both teams considered their match-up a victory for breast cancer awareness. The game was co-sponsored by Denny’s and Bob’s restaurants, and was organized in conjunction with Teresa Bates, president of the Marysville Performing Arts Center. Although the proceeds are still being added up, admission was $5 per person and went to support the game’s cause, which was also represented that afternoon by “Queens for a Cure.” Victoria Knight, co-founder of the beauty pageant which benefits breast cancer programs such as Susan G. Komen for

the Cure, attended the game accompanied by state Supreme Queen Alexa McNaughton, 10, who raised $3,000 to benefit breast cancer research and treatment, and Queen of Queens Samantha Schubert, 13, whose own fundraising efforts enlisted the aid of the Seattle Sounders. “It’s huge when communities can tie the cause to popular sporting events,” said Knight, who plans to honor Kinshasa Martin, the Rampage’s team owner, for his efforts to combat breast cancer later this year. “He’s done all he can do to help. Just raising awareness is important because early detection is one of the biggest ways to prevent breast cancer.” Martin, in turn, presented a flower to Bates for being “the sweetheart of the night” for her role in making the benefit game happen. While Martin asserted that she was “the backbone” of the event, Bates was quick to praise the Rampage in turn for its growth over the course of the past year, with increased attendance that she attributed to crowd-pleasing attractions

such as audience-participation games between quarters and a DJ to provide music during play. Rampage coach Chuck Fraine is no stranger to contributing to breast cancer awareness and prevention, since the disease has touched his own family. “I can’t say enough about this cause,” said Fraine, who’s donated to breast cancer charities through youth organizations and fellow sports professionals. “I’m a big charity guy anyway.” Fraine expressed just as much enthusiasm about the nearturnaround of the day’s game, which saw his team down by nearly 30 points at the halftime. “We got a lazy start and weren’t playing with intensity, but many of our players weren’t used to playing together,” Fraine said. “At the half, we were hard on ourselves and made the decision that we would come back from that deep hole. Ultimately, I don’t think we lost so much as we ran out of time.” The Rampage’s next game is set for Saturday, March 3, at the Marysville Boys & Girls Club.

‘Tip a Tip’ benefits local Boys & Girls clubs BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

Everett Silvertips mascot Lincoln gets comfortable next to Arlington fan Becki Toop during the team’s ‘Tip a Tip’ night on Feb. 22.

LAKEWOOD — Arlington’s Becki Toop was a bit shy around team mascot Lincoln on Feb. 22, but mom Danika noted that it wasn’t for a lack of enthusiasm for the Everett Silvertips, since the family holds season tickets. Moreover, that Wednesday evening was the Toops’ second time attending a “Tip a Tip” night at Boston’s Gourmet Pizza Restaurant. “The girls really enjoy it, even if they’re too old to say so,” Danika Toop laughed. “It’s very nice that they do this for the community.” The Silvertips’ second “Tip a Tip” of the 2011-12 season yielded $373, according to Travis Huntington, director of broadcasting and public relations for the team. Combined with the proceeds from Mill Creek, he estimated that the two “Tip a Tip” events this season yielded a total of about $800 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County. “We try to take every opportunity to pitch in for worthy local organizations,” said Huntington, who reported that 14 players turned out for “Tip a Tip” at Boston’s in Lakewood. Stanwood Silvertips fan Betty Bauman got center Ryan Chynoweth

to join his teammates in autographing the jersey she wore to dinner that evening, making him part of her informal tradition of getting different jerseys autographed by the full lineups of each season’s teams. Meanwhile, young fans Tekoah and Eddie Holland came from Lake Goodwin in spite of the day’s rain to get posters and pucks autographed, just as they’d gotten shirts autographed last year. “My son’s been inspired by the team to try and become a hockey player,” said Eddie Holland Sr. “My daughter wants to be a figure skater after seeing them. My sister got us into the Tips.” “Our fans are crazy passionate, but really nice,” said Chynoweth, a 16-year-old native of British Columbia who’s found his new home-away-from-home a bit more rainy and less snowy than he’s used to back in Canada. “Being on this team is a great experience, and it’s nice to be able to give back to the local community like this. It’s fun to see the fans, and when they ask us to autograph things like jerseys, posters, T-shirts and even phones, it’s a huge honor. Just being able to put on this jersey every day is everything I’d hoped it would be.”

Arts and Tech High School Food Drive. In all, 1,226 families received holiday food baskets for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Henry is a widow with three sons and a daughter, and she had many family members at the Feb. 13 City Council meeting. Her number one hobby is enjoying her six granddaughters, according to Nehring. In addition to the Toy Store, Henry volunteers each April at the annual Shreda-Thon and Clean Sweep event co-sponsored by the city, HomeStreet Bank, North County Outlook and ShredIt. The Shred-a-Thon event gives residents an opportunity to get rid of boxes of unneeded old documents that, if left around, can make them easier victims for identity thieves to prey on. Last year, 535 vehicles went through the line to see their documents safely destroyed by Shred-It trucks. The event is free, but Henry stocks red barrels at the event seeking donations for the Food Bank, to remind people that the need is there year-round. Last year’s event raised $477 and 350 pounds of food in four hours. “So even beyond the holi-


MARYSVILLE — Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring named Rita Henry as the community’s Volunteer of the Month for January of this year, for managing the Marysville Community Food Bank Toy Store that put toys and gift cards in the hands of 1,100 underprivileged children this past holiday season. Henry, a customer service supervisor at the Marysville branch of HomeStreet Bank, explained that she saw firsthand the difficulty that some community members have making ends meet when she began volunteering six years ago. She decided she wanted to make a difference, and the Toy Store fit because of the good it does for children and families. Today, she chairs the ad hoc committee that works through all phases of the Toy Store, and also represents the committee at Food Bank board meetings. “For your outstanding community service through the Food Bank and Toy Store during the holidays and throughout the year, it is indeed my honor to recognize you for your contributions,” Nehring said at the Feb. 13 City Council where Henry was honored. Family members, co-workers and Food Bank representatives attended. Henry started with the Toy Store first as treasurer in 2006, then teamed up with a city police department employee, Patricia Duemmell, to cochair the group for two years after the unexpected death in 2008 of Lillie Lein, another city employee who had overseen the Toy Store for several years. When Henry took on the solo role of chair, she marketed and re-branded the ubiquitous red barrels that appear in stores and buildings around the holidays to make sure that community members knew they represent the Marysville Community Food Bank and Toy Store. In 2011, requests for barrels grew from 40 to 60. Food Bank Director Dell Deierling raved about Henry’s leadership and passion for helping others, especially children. “She brings financial and organizational savvy from her banking background to help guide the invaluable and successful community program that the Toy Store has become,” Deierling said. In addition to the 1,100 donated toys, the community donated 86,000 pounds of food through general giving, the All-City Food and Toy Drive, and the Marysville

‘Hands on Health Fair’ highlights services BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

Kirk Boxleitner/Staff Photo


Arlington-based registered nurse and “Organ Lady” Kathy Ketchum holds up a container full of gallstones during “InsideOut: The Original Organ Show” at the Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett on Feb. 25.

EVERETT — The new Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center served as the centerpiece of the Providence Regional Medical Center’s “Hands-On Health Fair” in its Cymbaluk Medical Tower in Everett on Saturday, Feb. 25. Preston Simmons, chief operating officer of the Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, explained that its Vascular Surgery program has become even more robust since the opening of its Wound Healing Center within the past month. Ruth Henderson, licensed practical nurse and hyperbaric chamber technician, answered visitors’ questions about the Wound Healing Center’s hyperbaric medical chamber, whose features include curtains for privacy and a TV for patients to watch shows or movies during their two-hour treatment periods. “This chamber helps with diabetic foot ulcers, burns, carbon monoxide poisoning, bone infections and radiation damage from cancer treatments,” Henderson said. “It forces oxygen into wounds and other tissues at high pressure, and improves circulation by giving the lungs more concentrated oxygen to feed the bloodstream. It’s actually been shown to build brand new capillary blood vessels, and flesh-

eating viruses can’t grow with that amount of oxygen.” While some visitors wondered whether the inside of the chamber might feel claustrophobic for some patients, Henderson reported that many patients express disappointment when their sessions end. “There’s no demands on them inside that chamber,” Henderson said. “Besides, I’m in constant contact with them, right outside the chamber.” In the main “Hands-On Health Fair” area, more than 30 interactive information booths provided services and demonstrations such as training mannequins to teach CPR, bicycle helmet-fittings and car seat measurements, flu shots, and screenings for blood pressure and diabetic foot ulcers. Arlington-based registered nurse and “Organ Lady” Kathy Ketchum was even on site, with her table full of human organs, to present “InsideOut: The Original Organ Show,” albeit to a decidedly older audience than she typically addresses at area schools. Cardiac surgeon Dr. Joseph Austin, who successfully treated a teenage girl for a knife wound to the heart last fall, discussed attendees’ concerns about the symptoms of heart valve trouble, from shortness of breath to lack of stamina, as well as the likely course of treatment. “The doctors will listen for a heart murmur, then refer the patient for an

echocardiogram if one turns up,” Austin said. “If your heart’s valves are failing, it’s a condition you were born with or developed. It’s not like blocked arteries, which are avoidable.” Harvinder Bedi and Gary Wickman, who manned the echocardiography booth at the fair, summed it up as cardiac ultrasound carried out through a variety of methods, from putting a probe down the patient’s throat to check the back of their heart to conducting stress tests which record how each chamber of the heart functions before and after exertion. Austin noted that many open heart surgeries can now be avoided through the use of robotic probes, which can enter through a small incision in the side of a patient’s ribs. “It’s less traumatic than opening the breastbone, so patients tend to recover much faster from surgery,” Austin said. Dr. Clifford Rogers has already taken advantage of such technology as part of his gynecological surgeries. He invited fair attendees to look through the 3-D viewer of the da Vinci Surgical System, which allows surgeons to manipulate flexible and adjustable surgical robot arms through handson controls. “Two out of every three pelvic operations required me to make big incisions before,” Rogers said. “Now, I only need to do that in 3-5 percent of those operations.”

Local JROTC units compete in drill and rifle BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

ARLINGTON — Arlington High School hosted an assemblage of precision talent on Saturday, Feb. 25, as the Arlington Air Force and Marysville Navy Junior ROTC units joined nearly a dozen JROTC units from throughout the region in that day’s drill and rifle competition. The JROTC units were measured up in categories including color guard, unarmed and armed drill teams, individual and dual armed exhibition drills, physical fitness exams for male and female cadets, and air rifle marksmanship for teams and individuals. Marysville ranked 12th in team air rifle marksmanship and third among unarmed drill teams, while Arlington ranked sixth in the latter. Marysville and Arlington ranked seventh and eighth, respectively, among armed drill teams. Arlington ranked third for Color Guard 1 and fifth for Color Guard 2, while Marysville ranked eighth for Color Guard 1 and sixth for Color Guard 2. Arlington’s physical fitness teams ranked third and fourth, while Marysville’s ranked sixth. Marysville’s Ray Vital ranked second in the individual armed exhibition drill, while Marysville and Arlington ranked third and fourth, respectively, in the dual armed exhibition

The Arlington Air Force Junior ROTC unarmed drill team steps sharp for inspectors and crowds in the stands of the Arlington High School gym. drill. Cadet Lt. Cmdr. Terryl Daguison, unit commander of the Marysville Navy JROTC and commander of its unarmed drill team, attributed the lion’s share of his self-assuredness that day to the preparation and performance levels of his teammates. “Once you’re confident that your team is ready, your stress drains down,” said Daguison, a four-year senior in the program. “I’m very proud to know they’ll keep going strong after I’ve

gone, but I wish I could spend another year with them. They’ve been like a second family to me, and I’ll miss seeing them grow up.” Daguison’s father is an enlisted sailor who’s stationed on board USS Ford, which is home-ported at Naval Station Everett but was deployed that day, which meant that the elder Daguison had to miss out on his son’s performance. “I’m proud of the sacrifices my father has made in serving his country,” said Daguison, who plans to join

the Navy and become either an aeronautical or a nuclear engineer. “It’s all about the team. That’s what makes us a success.” Cadet Lt. j.g. Jasmine Iglesias, the 2nd squad leader for the Marysville Navy JROTC, is a fellow four-year senior in the program, but unlike Daguison, she sees her time in uniform as preparing her for a civilian career. “My older sister was part of this, and I wanted to learn more about leadership,” said Iglesias, who plans to

become an accountant, and echoed Daguison’s description of the unit as a another family. “Terryl has become like an older brother to me, and all the other cadets call me ‘Mom.’” While the day’s exercises proved demanding, as she and her fellow cadets had to wake up early and make sure they were squared away for inspection by adult military members and the general public, Iglesias also sees the program’s challenges as rewarding to her long-term growth. “You develop commitment and integrity, and you learn to be true to yourself,” Iglesias said. “That’s why other people will trust you.” Cadet Airman 1st Class Morgan Bacon only just joined the Arlington Air Force JROTC unit as a senior, but she fell in love with it so fast that she’s stayed with her teammates even after her family moved out of town in the middle of the 2011-12 school year. “I’ve bonded with my teammates and I wanted to graduate with my friends,” said Bacon, who agreed with Iglesias that JROTC instills leadership skills and integrity in cadets, and repeated the theme of finding a sense extended family among her peers in the program. Bacon has two brothers in the Navy and one in the Army, but what finally got her to join JROTC was seeing them perform in drill and rifle competitions such as the one on Feb. 25. Although she admitted that the uniform inspections and

question-and-answer sessions in ranks are demanding, she’s found it satisfying to perform well in areas that she and her fellow cadets devote a couple of hours to just about every day. “You get really good life skills out of it,” Bacon said of JROTC. “I only wish I’d joined sooner.” Although Colton McCoy has been part of the Arlington Air Force JROTC for all four years of high school, he’s done some commuting of his own for the program, since he was going to school in Lake Stevens when he first heard about the unit. “It’s been 40 miles a day, but I’ve fallen in love with this school,” said McCoy, who also heaped praise on his JROTC instructors. “I love the structure, but also the diversity of the program. You get two science classes, two leadership classes and a PT class each week. That’s so unique.” McCoy has already seen scholarship opportunities open up because of his time in JROTC, and along with plans to attend the University of Wyoming, he also aims to become a combat or a search-and-rescue pilot in the Air Force. Either way, he looks forward to keeping the sense of camaraderie he’s developed with his teammates in school. “The pace is crazy when you’re on the drill floor and you have to remember every single step, but it’s so rewarding when we pull together as a team,” McCoy said.
