LAKEWOOD — With unofficial results showing both of the Lakewood School District’s levies in the April 17 special election passing, district Superintendent Dr. Dennis Haddock expressed cautious optimism about the fates of funding for school programs and operations, as well as capital projects and technology. “Unless a ton of ballots are left to be counted, I suspect the current results are unlikely to be turned upside down,” Haddock said, noting that both of the school district’s measures require only simple majorities to pass. “Still, I don’t want to be too brash, so we’ll continue to watch the results very carefully.” As of 3:19 p.m. on April 20, the Snohomish County Elections Office

had reported that 1,653 “yes” votes, or 58.31 percent of the votes counted by that point, were cast for the replacement school programs and operations levy, and 1,558 “yes” votes, or 55.03 percent of the votes counted by that point, were cast for the capital projects and technology levy. Regardless of the eventual outcome, Haddock expressed his gratitude to the community for their support of Lakewood schools, especially since he estimated that 23 percent of the district’s general fund will come from the replacement levy. “We’ll always be looking for ways to economize without compromising quality instruction,” Haddock said. “But for the first time in three years of state and federal budget cuts, we’re now able to avoid staff reductions and maintain our SEE LEVIES, PAGE 2

LEGAL NOTICES

ARLINGTON — Nearly the entire 1,600-strong student body of Arlington High School donned costumes, tossed confetti, chanted and stomped their feet on Friday, April 20, to show their spirit for a unique contest that will also showcase the students’ video production skills. AHS’s entry into the “Lip Dub” contest will be screened at Anacortes High School on the evening of Wednesday, April 25, alongside those of the Anacortes, Everett, Mount Vernon and Sedro-Woolley high schools. Although Arlington’s students and staff coordinated the prep work for their video over the course of the months and weeks leading up to the afternoon of April 20, that Friday’s shooting itself only lasted for two takes, the second of which wound up being used.

Participation in the “Lip Dub,” and the choice of song to which its participants lip-sync, must be approved by school administration. Beyond that, each school’s video must be a single continuous take that is taped on school grounds and makes use of as many students as possible, and school staff are also allowed to appear. Erik Heinz, who teaches English and video production at Arlington High School, credited the success of the taping to student leadership, as well as faculty support and flexibility. Although only 10 students lipsynced on camera, Heinz estimated that between 1,400-1,500 students crowded the gymnasium, hallways and commons of the AHS facility to perform. Between $2,000 to $3,000 was spent on the taping, but a number of those purchases will yield long-

He likewise emphasized the need to address obsolete portable buildings, and to reroof parts of the stadium and the

middle school’s library and central campus. “They don’t even make parts anymore for some of our heating and ventilation systems,” said Haddock, who also eagerly anticipates the arrival of interactive whiteboards to serve as a classroom teaching tool. “We’re also excited to engage the community for their input on our preliminary plans for a potential bond in 2014, to modernize the high school. We’ll be having those discussions within the next 18

months.” Haddock is relieved that the state Legislature did not deliver significant adverse cuts to education, which he believes was possibly a result of the recent state Supreme Court ruling on education funding. “We’re hoping this means we can regain lost ground and refocus on why we’re here, which is to work with our kids,” Haddock said. “It wouldn’t have been a good scene if it had gone down the other path.”

County seeks input on housing options SMOKEY POINT — The Stillaguamish Senior Center will serve as the site for one of

three forums conducted by the Snohomish County Human Services Department to obtain community input on fair housing. The forums will include information on fair housing laws and the preliminary results of a fair housing study currently being completed for Snohomish County. The forums will also provide an opportunity for individuals, social-service providers, housing providers, landlords, property managers, lenders, and other interested persons and organizations to participate in a discussion about fair housing choice in our community. The Smokey Point forum will run from 3-4:30 p.m. on May 2 at the Stillaguamish Senior Center, located at 18308 Smokey Point Blvd. in Arlington. Snohomish County is conducting a fair housing study because it receives more than $5 million annually in federal grants

from the Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnership and Emergency Solutions Grant programs. These funds are used to support affordable housing and community development projects for lowincome people, families and neighborhoods. Through the series of community meetings and focus groups scheduled for May, and from research and analysis of housing issues and a survey conducted earlier in the year, the county’s Human Services Department is looking to identify housing barriers and ways to improve access. The forum facilities are accessible to individuals with disabilities. For additional information, to request a reasonable accommodation to enable you to fully participate in the forum such as a sign-language interpreter, or to request a language interpreter for the forum, please contact Sue Tracy at sue.tracy@ snoco.org or 425-388-3269 or at 7-1-1 for TTY users.

STUDENTS FROM PAGE 1 term usage value to the school, including the new stead-i-cam that student Josh Robinson used to shoot the video, complete with the vest, brace and arm. “We did do two rehearsals with just the lip-syncers and the camera, but with that many students, there was no way we could do a full-on dress rehearsal before the day of the taping,” Heinz said. “Our goal was to get every single kid in there.” Both Heinz and Robinson were surprised by how smoothly the two tapings went that afternoon, since they lasted less than an hour total and Heinz considered even the unused first take to be admission-quality. As for Robinson, he simply maintained a very narrow focus on his own job. “I had to trust the people around me enough to assume we wouldn’t

trip over each other,” said Robinson, who spent several sequences of the video practically racing down corridors to film as many of his classmates as he could. “I’d never used this equipment before and I’d never done a project like this before, but now I can put it on my resume. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out at first. I wasn’t expecting the chanting at the end to be so loud.” Danielle Spafford, one of the student lip-syncers, echoed Robinson by admitting that she hadn’t been sure whether they could even pull off the production, due to their inability to fully rehearse the video before the first taping itself. “We had to cut out a lot of the things we were planning on adding to the video, just because we didn’t time everything right,” said Spafford, who stepped outside of her comfort zone by stepping in front of the camera. “Normally I’m a

behind-the-scenes kind of girl who doesn’t like to be noticed, but this just seemed like a whole new experience that not many people get.” Spafford praised her peers for their team spirit and willingness to collaborate on the video, which she believes helped bolster the school’s spirit in addition to showcasing it. Katelynn Stovall, who did work behind the scenes as part of student leadership, noted that settling on the final choice of Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love” was one of the more challenging aspects of the production, because they wanted it to be an upbeat song that everyone would know. “Everything after that was pretty easy,” Stovall said. “Throughout this competition, everyone stayed positive and there was no trash-talking. Everyone was cheering on everyone else. This was super fun to do, and everyone I know who participated had a blast.”

Tulalip Cabela’s celebrates grand opening

BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

“Washington is rich with outdoor recreation opportunities, and many people in this area are longtime Cabela’s catalog and Internet customers.” Tommy Millner, Cabela’s CEO with Cabela’s through their Lacey store, although he’d also visited their branch in his native Tennessee. “They’ve got a great selection and product availability,” said Durham, who fishes for salmon, steelhead and trout. “The latter is the best part.” Durham’s only regret was that the Cabela’s hadn’t opened in Bellingham instead. Snohomish’s Scott Sieb and Todd Britsch each checked out the crossbows in turn, with Sieb declaring his intentions to hunt some big game and Britsch expressing his gratitude for the shorter commute from his home to this Tulalip store versus the one in Lacey. “That’s an hour and a half drive,” said Britsch, who was also in the market for handguns and ammunition. “We do a lot of online shopping with Cabela’s, but it’s not the same as being able to try on the clothes yourself.” Arlington was well represented in the crowds that turned out for the grand opening, with at least a couple of families bringing their kids on a school day to browse through the store’s wares. Arlington mom Kathy Estes had her 7-yearold son Hunter try on life-

jackets, while Arlington dad Robert Fleming shopped for hunting gear with his own 13-year-old son Erik. “We’re doing target practice with rifles and bows and arrows,” said Robert Fleming, who also goes fishing with Erik. “The whole Cabela’s experience is great. We’ve been to the stores in Lacey and in Idaho, but we always had to make a special stop of it before, when we were passing through those areas. Lake Stevens’ Andy Laimon and Vicky White are no strangers to Cabela’s either, with Laimon having attended three grand openings of Cabela’s stores, including the one in Tulalip. He was able to relax and check out crab traps that Thursday, but on Monday, April 23, he started work as an employee of the Tulalip Cabela’s store, in the archery department. “I love everything about this store,” Laimon said. “I could wander around here and wear her out.” “Their camping equipment keeps me motivated to go outdoors, even in the rain,” White said. “I also support Cabela’s as a brand because of how they treat their employees.” Nathan Wilke brought

“Cody’s birthday was on the 12th and mine was on the 16th, so we’re both playing hooky as a late birthday present,” Nathan Wilke laughed. “We plan to spend all day here. We’ll hit every aisle except for ladies’ wear.

When you get off the island, you do everything at once.” “This is freaking impressive,” said Tyler Schmidt, a 16-year-old from Arlington making his first visit to a Cabela’s store. “When I die, this is where I want to go.”

TULALIP — Customers lined up around the block and filled up the overflow parking lot west of the Tulalip Resort to take part in the official grand opening of the Tulalip Cabela’s store on Thursday, April 19. “Washington is rich with outdoor recreation opportunities, and many people in this area are longtime Cabela’s catalog and Internet customers,” Cabela’s CEO Tommy Millner said. “We’re excited to open another store in the Evergreen State, making our services even more accessible to its hunters, anglers and outdoor enthusiasts.” “There’s been a buzz in the community surrounding our opening,” said Kevin Weeks, Tulalip Cabela’s store manager. “I know there’s enthusiasm for the new store in other parts of the state and Canada as well.” The Bellingham trio of Taryn Seiler and Jake and Jordyn Veliz nabbed some of the last of a few varieties of sweatshirts by arriving at the Tulalip Cabela’s at 5:30 a.m. to wait for its 11 a.m. opening. “This place is amazing,” said Seiler, one of many customers fascinated by the fish tanks. Fellow Bellingham resident Gordon Durham made the trek to check out the Tulalip Cabela’s rods, reels and waders. A fisherman since childhood, Durham was one of a number of customers already familiar

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Support the Strawberry Festival’s Trike Races As I sit in my office, I am looking out at the beautiful blue sky and the sun is shining so bright, I can’t help but think of “Summer.” Summer arrives on June 20, with it also comes all types of community activities. This letter is in reference to one of those longstanding events and one in particular which has brought so much enjoyment to so many, and it may very well be no more unless people get involved. Last year, many of us were sad and disappointed to hear that the long-running Marysville Strawberry Festival Adult Trike Races were being cancelled. For those of us who have been involved in the Strawberry Festival, this event was always a fun and enjoyable event that brought spectators and entrants alike together for what always turned into an evening of fun and excitement. This event is part of Marysville and has been since 1974, with the first race being held in June of 1975.

My challenge, “Do Not Let This Event Die.” Don’t let it go away not to ever be enjoyed by our community and visitors ever again. It only takes one business to get it started. The momentum will take shape when someone puts out the first “trike” for everyone to see; when someone puts together their first team and they challenge other businesses to do the same; when the first painted strawberries appear on business windows; the official T-shirts hit the stores. There was a feeling that took over this city when Strawberry Festival got near, it has been missing for too long and it is time for that feeling to come alive once again. Let’s do this for the sake of our community and in honor of those who created this terrific event. Our community needs and it is time for the “Spirit of Strawberry Festival,” past and present, to take over and rule the city for the next three months … what do you say, shall the Festival begin? Sincerely, Cheryl Deckard Marysville

A touch of socialism might be good

S

eeds of Socialism are being sowed in every pre-school and kindergarten in Snohomish County. You find them reflected in children’s progress reports as, “Has learned to share toys.” Kids who carry that attitude through life might even fall for radical ideas like sharing a medical system. Lucky for conservatives that not every child goes to kindergarten. Not to worry though. Tons of kids who did have Early Childhood Education failed to learn to share, and led by Tim Eyman they never will. Proof lies in letters to editors where cranks rant about paying taxes. They get steamed about the roles government might play in their lives. The mere mention of Socialism gets their blood boiling and no wonder. Socialism is painted as the top of a slippery slope that, if not done away with, will dump us out at the bottom as Communists! So what exactly is Socialism? When taken to an extreme, it puts businesses and factories in the hands of government. Not to worry. Aside from a few 20th Century Communist nations, that never happened, even in nations that label themselves Socialist. You may find state-run railroads, banks and power plants here and there but, by and large, production stays in private hands. The lines that once separated political-isms have become so blurred that it’s hard to tell who’s what anymore. Communist Chinese have become Capitalists. Communist Cuba encourages private enterprise. To find a hard-core ism today you’d have to look to radical Islam or the Christian Right, both so polarized that they see the rest of the world as infidel or heretic. To find out if Socialism is really a hotbed of scary bugaboos you’d have to compare so-called Socialist nations with the United States.

OPINION

BOB GRAEF

Differences like how government and citizens work out problems that individuals might have trouble handling on their own. Individuals aren’t likely to hire police or build colleges. We agree to cooperate on that sort of thing but we don’t call it Socialism. Homeowners have found it impractical to buy personal fire engines. We share libraries. We pool money to build and maintain roads and most of us think it’s a good idea to share water and sewer systems and a postal system. Taxes support socialistic operations like the Port of Everett and air traffic control. Like it or not, we are enjoying a mild case of Socialism. It turns out that fear of Socialism isn’t so much a fear of government taking over industry than fear of intervention in personal lives. If we still lived according to the Code of the West when land was free and neighbors’ lives didn’t overlap, there wouldn’t be much need for government. It so happens, though, that need for government grows with growth in population as lives overlap more and more. People find themselves sharing space and facilities. Rugged individualism was a nice notion but it worked only when space and opportunity were unlimited, as in the Old West. I’m being socialized every day. In the midst of a rabidly capitalistic democracy everyone is being socialized. I’ve been socialized to believe in equal opportunity. It takes socialistic-type taxes to fund necessary infrastructures. We need Big Programs to deal with Big Issues

like how to keep a society healthy enough to work and ensuring that people can get from Point A to Point B. Or maintaining police forces to catch thieves of all sizes, from pickpockets to white collar thieves using high positions to swindle widows and retirees into poverty. How can we fund protection from them if not through taxes? Even critics of Socialism expect government to protect them from toxic foods, fraudulent banking practices, rapacious pharmaceutical companies, a price-gouging oil industry and unsafe coal mines. But disinformation campaigns funded by those same interests coach citizens to vote against their best interests. Propaganda campaigns contradict the Bible’s instructions to feed the hungry and clothe the naked, visit prisoners and the sick and welcome strangers. Jesus was too socialistic, they say. Individuals can’t build roads to the grocery store on their own. Or ski resorts. I’d have to pony up most of a billion dollars to construct enough roads and bridges to access the slopes at Stevens Pass. So we share burdens when necessary. And therein lies the rub. How much burden-sharing is necessary? I don’t need, nor do I want, any help doing things I can do myself. I can work for a wage, try to stay healthy and maintain a home. But it helps me to sleep nights, knowing that government has some bases covered. I’m one of the lucky ones. Being healthy, somewhat secure and free of birth-defects or crippling illness or injury, I’m pretty independent. Yet seeing how one adverse stroke of fate ruins a neighbor’s family’s hopes convinces me that a little Socialism might not be a bad idea.

County prosecutor speaks out on Carlile case BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

MARYSVILLE — After Snohomish County Sheriff ’s detectives forwarded their investigation into the March 10 shooting death of a Marysville Police officer’s daughter to the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office on April 18 for review, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe responded to the concerns of citizens who have wondered whether this case will be treated differently because it involves a police officer. Marysville Police Officer Derek Carlile remains on paid administrative leave and Snohomish County Sheriff ’s detectives made no recommendations as to whether charges should be filed in the homicide investigation of his 7-year-old daughter, Jenna. Investigators believe that Jenna Carlile and three other, younger children were in the family van in Stanwood on March 10 while the parents were outside talking with a friend when one of Jenna’s siblings reportedly found a loaded handgun belonging to Derek Carlile and fired it, and Jenna was shot as a result. Roe explained that it’s standard practice for a homicide investigation involving a police officer to be conducted by a law enforcement agency other than that of the officer, and took issue with those who have compared

the speed of this homicide investigation unfavorably to that of the recent investigation of a similar shooting in Tacoma. “We had seasoned homicide detectives who actually investigated this pretty quickly,” Roe said. “I’ve seen the blog posts and heard the phone calls asking what’s taken so long, but it hasn’t taken long. I would decline to compare this investigation to that of the Tacoma case, because it’s a different case involving other people that’s not relevant to this case, and because I don’t know all the details of that other case.” Roe described it as a typical practice of the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office to assign such a case to an experienced deputy prosecutor, and he touted senior Deputy Prosecutor Lisa Paul’s credentials as head of the Special Assault Unit, which deals with crimes against children, as well as her membership on the Child Fatality Review Board. “I’ve been a prosecutor for 25 years and handled dozens of murder cases,” Roe said. “We’re not handling this one differently from any other case. We’ve received letters and messages suggesting that we should skip the investigation and go straight to the hanging, and saying that if we don’t, it shows that we’re biased in this case. In so many other cases, everyone involved has asked us to take our time, to not rush things

and to hear both sides, so it’s odd when we’re asked not to do so when it involves a police officer. Who’s showing their bias then?” Roe noted that the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office has charged officers before, as recently as a couple of years ago, but just as Paul cited the possible need for follow-up interviews or other additional investigation, so too did Roe estimate that it could take two or three weeks, or perhaps even more, to determine whether criminal charges will be filed in connection with the Carlile shooting. “Regardless of the decision we make, people will be upset because emotions are high surrounding this case and what happened was horrible,” said Roe, who does not intend to discuss the facts of the case. Washington state law states that “children under the age of eight years are incapable of committing crime,” so the age of Jenna Carlile’s sibling is significant to the case. By contrast, there is no state law which specifically addresses the criminal penalties for adults who make guns available to children by leaving them unattended. According to Marysville Police Department officials, their internal investigation into the Carlile shooting case would not start until the Sheriff ’s Office had completed its own investigation.

“Ideally, I’d like to see the amount of donations meet the level achieved in 2009, which was 40,000 pounds,” said Deierling, who’s seen a decline in donations of 20 percent each year over the past two years. Deierling nonetheless expressed his faith in the community, noting that the food bank received more than 95,000 pounds of food during the final quarter of last year, which allowed them to stock their shelves through the winter holidays and the spring. Deierling deemed the Letter Carriers Food Drive essential for covering the summer period when kids are at home and family needs are high.

According to Marysville Community Food Bank Director Dell Deierling, this drive has a heightened importance this year, since the number of visits to the food bank is up 8 percent from where it was at this time last year.

Students get scoop on colleges, careers

TULALIP — Area high school students got to talk one-on-one with regional employers and representatives for post-graduate education throughout the day on Tuesday, April 17, in the Orca and Chinook rooms of the Tulalip Resort. Every 11th-grade student in the Marysville School District, including those of the Tulalip Tribes, was bused to the crowded rooms during a school day to meet with more than 150 recruiters and spokespersons for two- and four-year colleges, technical and trade schools, trade unions, local businesses and branches of the military, as well as community service and volunteer opportunities. Renee Roman Nose of Northwest Indian College at Tulalip reported that three students who visited during the morning session got jobs on the spot, and she called upon the students in the midday session to use the 2012 Opportunity Expo — jointly provided by the Marysville Rotary,

the Tulalip Tribes and the Marysville School District — to help them avoid making the same mistakes as their elders. “We haven’t kept proper care of the earth or the economy,” said Roman Nose, who argued that passing up on college is like throwing away a lottery ticket worth $1 million in additional lifetime earning power. “We’re looking to you to be smarter than we’ve been.” All of the students interviewed had found something to spark their interests in the rows of booths. Kory Edgecomb and Alwyn Galang both attend the BioMed Academy at Marysville Getchell High School, but their shared fondness for healthcare took them in very different directions. “I’m thinking of going into physical therapy now,” said Edgecomb, after speaking with personnel at the Summit Rehabilitation table. “I asked the Navy recruiters about becoming a doctor,” said Galang, who would like to follow his father into the same branch of service. Dylan Smith, a student at

Marysville Getchell’s School for the Entrepreneur, had been leaning toward engineering before the electronic displays of Pacific Lutheran University piqued his curiosity about video production, while The Marysville Globe was approached by not only Eugene Gonzales, an aspiring National Geographic photographer currently enrolled in MG’s International School of Communications, but also Laura Plas and Tayler Royon, both of Pathways of Choice at MarysvillePilchuck High School. “I’m thinking about graphic design,” said Plas, whose fascination with the field owes much to her studies of collaging and Andy Warhol. “I’m also interested in the hair salon stuff that I’m seeing, because I like doing my friends’ hair.” “I’m interested in fine art and fashion photography,” Royon said, as she and Plas spoke with representatives of the National College of Art and Design. “I could also go for video game designing.” Like Galang, M-PHS Naval Junior ROTC Cadet Lt. Cmdr. Kristofer Davies

consulted with the recruiters in the room, since he’s aiming for either the Naval or Air Force academies to launch him toward a career as a pilot, and he was pleasantly surprised to find himself ahead of the game. “They told me I was already doing what I need to be doing,” Davies said. “They also reminded me that quality matters more than quantity. It doesn’t matter if you get your applications in early if you haven’t done them right.” Pathways of Choice’s Breanna Burt and SHOPP’s Bianca Zamora both took advantage of some hairstyling demonstrations by the Gene Juarez Academy, although Burt believes that her fondness for helping others might manifest itself just as well as a counselor as it would as a cosmetologist. “The response from the business community has been incredible,” said David Carpenter, high school career counselor for the Marysville School District. “It’s been far greater than we expected.

The community is sending a clear message to all of our students. We care about your future and are here to help.” “Education is power, and this event will benefit the future of the students, as well as our communities,” said Randy Elliott of the Tulalip Tribes Higher Education Department. “Opportunity Expo 2012 will provide students with a great resource to learn more

about their professional passions, career dreams or what educational opportunities await them after graduation,” said Chris Nation, president of both the Marysville School District Board of Directors and the Rotary Club of Marysville. “We want every young adult to know that they are important, that they can succeed and that this event is here to help them achieve that goal.”

The Arlington Times • The Marysville Globe

Salcedo joins staff of Times, Globe

BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

MARYSVILLE — For Lauren Salcedo, the recently hired sports and news reporter for The Marysville Globe and The Arlington Times, her new job feels a bit like coming home. Salcedo has family in Arlington and was also enrolled in Running Start at Everett Community College. Because she was already studying journalism at the age of 15 at EvCC, she soon found herself editing that school’s newspaper. “I did everything from laying

out all the pages to cleaning up after we were done,” said Salcedo, who graduated from high school in 2007 and transferred from EvCC to the University of Washington. Salcedo’s affinity for the printed page dates back well before her teen years, but it took her a while to realize how she could best channel it. “Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve loved to read anything,” Salcedo said. “I prefer it to TV or movies. As I got older, I realized that I enjoyed writing real stories more than fiction, with

real people. I wanted to get to the heart of things that people don’t always see.” One such story at Everett Community College centered on an oft-overlooked groundskeeper whose story had never been told. “He did all the landscaping, and I saw him all the time, but no one knew that much about him,” Salcedo said. “I got his story.” Salcedo’s resume of newspaper experience extends well beyond her college paper, with stints on the Lynnwood Enterprise — now the Weekly Herald — the Mukilteo and Edmonds Beacons,

and the Port Townsend Leader. As the new sports and news reporter for the Globe and Times, Salcedo admitted that she’s not yet equally well-versed in all kinds of sports coverage, but she does bring knowledge of the field overall and a desire to connect with local teams, in order to tell their stories as personally as she did the landscaper at Everett Community College. “I hope to build good relationships with our coaches and to tell the whole story, not just about the events, but about the players,” Salcedo said.

Equine Rez-Q invites community to open house BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

MARYSVILLE — To commemorate the progress they’ve made in recovering from flooding that devastated their facilities last year, and to show their appreciation to the community for supporting their group, the all-volunteer crew of the All Breed Equine Rez-Q in Marysville invited the community to attend an open house fundraiser at their stables on Saturday, April 21, to see what donors’ contributions have helped to repair, and in some cases improve. Lynnwood residents Mike and Dieta Gravesen brought their granddaughter, nearly8-year-old Amelia Myers of Everett, with them to tour the grounds and visit the horses that day, and Amelia took advantage of the pony

rides available for children to climb up onto the saddle of “Blacky.” For Mike and Dieta it was a chance to finally see the nonprofit to which they’ve contributed, although they described themselves as merely “small donors.” “We used to donate to a rolling ranch in Montana that took in all sorts of animals, but then they moved to the East Coast,” Mike Gravesen said. “The wife has always liked horses, and we heard about this place in the news, so we decided to support a local organization.” As Amelia and Blacky trotted around a show ring with the help of volunteer Becky Segault, Mike admitted to being pleasantly surprised by how healthy all the horses looked, and praised the All Breed Equine Rez-Q for providing the horses with

Building Trust Since 1935

ample space and personalized care. “This is a worthy cause,” Mike Gravesen said. “Anyone who wants to save horses should support this group.” Shirley Johnson Murray agreed to bake 100 gourmet cupcakes to sell at the All Breed Equine Rez-Q fundraiser because she believes it can benefit people who volunteer there as much as it does the horses they care for. “I have a disabled client who comes here to work,” said Johnson Murray, an employment specialist and job coach with Washington Vocational Services. “I can’t even begin to tell you what this place has done for them. The family has noticed a clear difference, and the staff is so wonderfully kind and gentle.” Julia Harnish attends middle school in Lake Stevens, but she’s made time to volunteer at the All Breed Equine

Rez-Q for the past five years, even though she’s only 12 years old now. “I heard about this place in the newspaper from one of their open houses,” Harnish said, in between grooming ponies and taking them out of their stalls for rides. “I love horses. I ride here every week. They take good care of these horses with the money they have, and with more money they’d be able to take better care of them.” Dale Brooks, president of the All Breed Equine Rez-Q, touted the group’s repairs to their stables’ roofs, barns and floors from the flood damage, but noted that only 17 of their 30 stalls are serviceable enough to accommodate horses. She added that it costs about $2,400 a month to keep their non-profit up and running, with vet bills alone costing between $500 and $1,000 each, even with an all-volunteer crew of roughly a dozen full-timers

AHS softball beats Kamiak 7-4 BY LAUREN SALCEDO lsalcedo@arlingtontimes.com

Lauren Salcedo/Staff Photo

Eagles pitcher Hayley Fields strikes out a Knight during their 7-4 victory over Kamiak on April 18.

ARLINGTON — The Arlington High School varsity softball team beat the Kamiak Knights 7-4 on Wednesday, April 18, in their second of three victories last week. “The game went really well until the sixth or seventh innings, when we gave up a couple of hits,” said AHS Softball Head Coach Lonnie Hicks. Overall, the Eagles played a tight game with an early lead on the Knights, scoring all seven runs in the first four innings of the game. “We played solid the whole game,” Hicks said. “We held it in for about five

innings with no runs. We did really well.” The Eagles scored two runs in the first inning, three in the second, one in the third and one in the fourth. Kamiak scored four runs in the last three innings. Arlington players with stunning performances include Lynsey Amundson who went 2-3, with two doubles. “She’s been doing well all season,” said Hicks. Katelyn McDonald also went 2-3, with one double and one single. The Eagles are still on top with a conference record of 8-0 and a 12-1 record overall. Arlington faced Monroe High School earli-

er in that week and defeated them 5-0. Eagles pitcher Ronnie Ladines struck out 14 Bearcats and the win kept the team undefeated in conference play, a rank that they maintained with their victory over Kamiak, as well as their win against Mariner High School on Friday, April 20, that ended in a 13-0 victory. This week, they face off against Edmonds-Woodway in a home game scheduled for April 26. After that, the Eagles are scheduled to play against Snohomish, Stanwood and MarysvillePilchuck high schools the week of April 30. Snohomish and Marysville-Pilchuck are ranked second and third in their division, respectively.

Cougars demolish Wildcats twice BY LAUREN SALCEDO lsalcedo@arlingtontimes.com

LAKEWOOD — The Lakewood Cougars softball team demolished Archbishop Murphy High School twice last week in a Cascade Conference doubleheader on Wednesday, April 18. The Wildcats were unable to score even a single run during the day’s first game, thanks to the perfect pitching of Cougars’ Jennaka Larson. “She was the winning pitcher in the first game of our doubleheader with Archbishop Murphy High School,” said Lakewood Softball Head Coach Steve Barker. The game started off with an impressive seven runs scored in the first inning alone. With that kind of lead off, the Wildcats really struggled to make any sort of comeback for the duration of the first game. Each of the Lakewood players was able to bring consistent skill and solid batting to score. “Kiana Smith had two hits, Arianna Barrio scored three runs, Mikayla Holmes had three RBI and Terah

Barrio hit a home run,” said Barker. Arianna Barrio hit a double and stole two bases during the game. Larson’s solid pitching left her with a number of Wildcat strikeouts and kept Archbishop Murphy from scoring even a single run. The Cougars went on to win 12-0 in their first game. The second game proved to be just as much of a success for the Cougars fastpitch team as the first. With Hailey Malakowski as the winning pitcher for the doubleheader’s second game, Lakewood kept their offense strong once again. “We scored seven runs in the fourth inning and won 13-2,” said Barker. “Maddie Holmes and Jenny Apker each had three hits to lead the offense.” With Holmes and Apker both 3-3, a fifthinning home-run from the Wildcats didn’t manage to turn the tides in their favor. The Cougars lost their third game this season in an exciting match-up against Granite Falls High School on April 20. The Granite Falls Tigers are the first-ranked team in their

division but the Cougars certainly put up a fight. They continued their solid offense, with Kiana Smith and Arianna Barrio each hitting a triple. The game was level up until the fifth inning when a Tigers player, Taylor Manino, hit an RBI single to pull the Granite Falls team into the lead over the Cougars. The team heads now to battle South Whidbey High School in a home game on April 26. The last time Lakewood faced up against the South Whidbey Falcons on April 6, Kiana Smith and Alexa Chase brought it in with back-to-back home runs. Following the Falcons game, the Cougars head to the island to play an away game against Coupeville High School on April 30 — an opponent they pummeled with a 10-4 victory on April 10. South Whidbey and Coupeville high school teams rank fourth and fifth in the league, with records of 6-6 and 5-8 respectively. Cougar softball ranks third in the league with an 8-3 season record as of April 23.

Local students named county dairy ambassadors

ARLINGTON — On Saturday, April 14, two Arlington High School students were elected as the Snohomish County Dairy Ambassador and Ambassador Alternate. Erin Peek is an AHS junior who was chosen to serve as the Dairy Ambassador for 2012-13. She currently serves as the AHS Future Farmers of America chapter vice president, and will serve next year as the Washington District 1 FFA sentinel. In addition to her responsibilities with FFA, Peek is active in showing animals at fairs and competitions. Her experience of living on a family farm, where they raise farm animals and produce, offers her an in-depth understanding of the benefits the community receives from local farming. AHS senior Shana Morcom has been selected as the Ambassador Alternate. She’s the current FFA chapter

Morcom starts each day by hand-milking her dairy cow on her own family farm. Attending Everett Community College next year is important to her, so she can stay local and participate in the Washington state dairy activities. Morcom also plans to take flying lessons to obtain her pilot’s license, like her dad. Peek and Morcom will represent Snohomish County and its dairy industry as ambassadors and spokespersons at

public events and activities. Both students will also represent Snohomish County on the state level, and their responsibilities will include educating the public about the value of dairy products and the dairy industry, and informing the urban population in Washington state about the dairy industry as a contemporary business vital to the local economy. The 2012 Washington State Dairy Ambassador Coronation Banquet took place at the Medallion Hotel.

Bill grew up in Monroe and after leaving for the service and being stationed all over the United States and In Japan as well, came back stateside where he eventually retired from the Air Force after 20 years and resided in Riverside, California until 1968 when he moved the family settling in Marysville where he has lived ever since.

Cake and coffee will be served

ARLINGTON — Although a couple of their presenters and one of their guests of honor were unable to attend, the members of Arlington Lodge 129 of Free and Accepted Masons nonetheless celebrated the Arlington and Darrington high school students who had earned this year’s Junior Achievement Awards. Darrington High School juniors Jordan Rumsey and sisters Allison and Amanda Kitz were honored alongside Arlington High School juniors Sierra DeCosta, Marissa Swegle, Lynsey Amundson, Lindsay Brown, Jollee Pullig, Allie Jones, Kendra Ferrier, Shelby Carr, and brothers Collier and Brendon Brereton. All the AHS students and the Kitz sisters from Darrington seem to be on track for a four-year college or university, with DeCosta, Swegle, Brown, Ferrier and Carr inclined toward the medical field, and DeCosta and Swegle both considering physical therapy as a career. At the same time, Ferrier is also considering engineering, much like the Brereton brothers, both of whom expressed an interest in attending Western Washington University. Of

the other Arlington juniors, Amundson is aiming for prelaw, Pullig is looking into journalism and Jones is weighing her options between graphic design and marketing. Of the DHS students, the Kitz sisters are more interested in the arts, with Allison aspiring to perform and teach music while Amanda plans to doublemajor in fine arts and journalism. As for Rumsey, she’s already interning at the Darrington town clinic and hopes to become an EMT or a flight nurse. DeCosta and Collier Brereton received the Junior Achievement Scholarships for Arlington, while Rumsey earned it for Darrington, based on a combination of academic performance and community service. While the Darrington High School staff could not attend, Arlington High School Principal Brian Beckley echoed guest speaker state Rep. Dan Kristiansen’s praise not only for the students themselves, but also for their families and educators for helping them get this far. “Don’t be afraid to grow,” Kristiansen said. “You are the leaders of the future. Your teachers have trained you and your parents have

“Your teachers have trained you and your parents have supported you, but you’re the ones who need to look outside the box for different ways of doing things.” Dan Kristiansen State Representative supported you, but you’re the ones who need to look outside the box for different ways of doing things.” Kristiansen and Beckley cited AHS robotics, mathematics and video game programming teacher Jim Bassett as an example of a teacher who uses hands-on, real-world applications of classroom lessons to help make subjects come alive for their students. Bassett was selected for this year’s Outstanding Educator Award, but was under the weather and unable to attend. “Just about everybody knows Jim, because he’s all over both the Arlington and Weston high schools,” Beckley said. “He is kind, understanding, knowledgeable and a real gem of the Arlington Public Schools.”

Marysville-Pilchuck and Marysville Getchell high school students rehearse for “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” a school musical set to premiere on April 26.

‘Spelling Bee’ musical comes to M-P who they are and to separate themselves from their crazy families. “Their struggles to escape childhood are overseen by grownups who never completely succeeded in escaping it themselves,” Klementsen said. “One of the unique features of this show is the fact that four audience members will be allowed to sign up and actually compete in the spelling bee on stage.” The cast is a mix of Marysville-Pilchuck and Marysville Getchell high school students who won their roles during auditions in January. Madison Pickard, Khalina Shurtz, Zach Wells, Anna-Marie Mudd, Mikko Juan, Cherish Broker, Taylor Cannal, Casandra Gramstad, Kimberly Davis, Carly Wilson and Sage Fairbanks

make up the cast of the show, with several other students behind the scenes and in the orchestra pit. The musical is presented without intermission, but free candy and other goodies will be thrown into the audience at some point during the show. Audience members who volunteer as spellers will also receive complimentary juice boxes. Tickets are $8 for adults, and $7 for students with ASB and senior citizens. The M-PHS auditorium is located at 5611 108th St. NE in Marysville.

promotion. Arlington is the only city in the state to have earned this prestigious award 13 years in a row. The city continues to provide a wellness program built and run by employees, which encourages them to adopt and maintain healthy lifestyle choices. Award recipients receive

a 2 percent premium discount on their Regence BlueShield or Asuris Northwest Health medical coverage for employees and spouses in 2013. While the discount is an incentive for earning the award, the benefits to the employees and the city as a whole reach far beyond.

Free dental screenings available at Stilly Senior Center May 1 SMOKEY POINT — The “Smiles for Life” Dental Access Program will be conducting a free screening day from 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, May 1, at the Stillaguamish Senior Center, located at 18308 Smokey Point Blvd. in Arlington. “Smiles for Life” is a comprehensive approach to improving the oral health of communities’ seniors, with community partnerships and consumer choice as its cornerstone. The program includes oral health care and consumer education classes, with oral health screenings and preventive services provided at the Stillaguamish Senior Center. The oral health screen-

ing consists of a head, neck and oral cancer screen. The screenings are provided at no charge, and preventive services such as cleanings are affordably priced. Personalized financial and referral guidance are also components of the model, with strong referral linkages to private dentists, community clinics, denturists and medical providers. Anita Rodriguez is a

licensed dental hygienist with many years of experience, and has spent the last three years with the “Smiles For Life” program. She now runs clinics in Anacortes and Everett, as well as the Stillaguamish Senior Center program. Appointments are required, so call Betty at 360-652-2232 or Adele at 360-653-4551, ext. 234, to make your appointments.

Could This Treatment Really Stop Neuropathy Once and For All? Find out if this could be your solution! Only $35 for anyone who is suffering with these conditions. Do you have any of the following symptoms...

What these studies mean is that you could soon be enjoying life…without those aggravating nerve problems.

Could This Be Your Solution?

• Numbness in the feet?

It’s time for you to find out if chiropractic will be your neuropathy solution.

• Tingling in the legs? • Peripheral Neuropathy?

For the next 10 days, $35 will get you all the services I normally charge new patients $250 for!

• Weakness in the arms or legs?

What does this offer include? Everything. Take a look at what you will receive:

• Burning sensations in the hands or feet? The pain….the cold feet…the loss of sensation… lack of sleep… it’s enough to drastically affect your life. And you worry it’s only going to get worse throughout life. My name is Dr. Scott Peseau, owner of Arlington Spine Center. We’ve been helping people with neuropathy and nerve problems for more than 25 years. Often neuropathy is caused by a degenerating spine pressing on the nerve roots. This can happen in any of the vertebral joints from the neck all the way down to the tail bone. The good news is that chiropractic treatments have proven effective in helping remove the pressure on the nerves. By using gentle techniques, I’m able to release the pressure that has built up on the nerves. In many cases this has allowed the nerve to heal and the symptoms to go away.

Patients Showed 85% Resolution of Symptoms For example, numerous studies have proven chiropractic’s effectiveness in helping nerve conditions. Patients showed an 85.5% resolution of the nerve symptoms after only 9 chiropractic treatments. – Journal of Chiropractic Medicine 2008 With chiropractic care, patients had “significant improvement in perceived comfort and function, nerve conduction and finger sensation overall.” ~ JMPT 1998 “Significant increase in grip strength and normalization of motor and sensory latencies were noted. Orthopedic tests were negative. Symptoms dissipated.” ~ JMPT 1994 Due to Federal law some exclusions may apply.

• An in-depth consultation about your health and well-being where I will listen…really listen… to the details of your case • A complete neuromuscular examination $75 value. • A full set of Specialized x-rays to determine if a spinal problem is contributing to your pain or symptoms…$80 value (if clinically necessary). • A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray findings so we can start mapping out your plan to being pain free, $75 value. I’ll answer your most proving questions about nerve problems and how chiropractic can help. Until May 7th, 2012 you can get everything I’ve listed here for only $35. The normal price for this type of evaluation including x-rays is $230, so you’re saving a considerable amount by taking me up on this offer. Call 360-4749900 now. We can get you scheduled for your consultation, exam and x-rays as soon as there’s an opening. Our office is located at 215 E. 3rd Street in Arlington. When you call, tell the receptionist you’d like to come in for the Nerve Evaluation so she can get you on the schedule and make sure you receive proper credit for this special offer. Sincerely, Dr. Scott Peseau, D.C. P.S. Remember, you only have until May 7th, 2012 to reserve an appointment at this significant discount. Why suffer for years in misery? Phone 360-474-9900.

DO YOU HAVE NUMBNESS, TINGLING OR PAIN IN THE HANDS AND FEET? IF SO, THERE IS HOPE. READ THE ARTICLE TO FIND OUT.

Here’s What Our Patients Say... “I had a severe neuropathy in my leg after an amusement park accident that trapped my leg and injured the nerve and tissues. After treatment with Dr. Peseau I feel a lot better and have regained much of the feeling in my leg. I am now able to to stand and walk without much pain!!! Keep up the great work and I thank you for all you have helped me with. I will be recommending this clinic to friends and family in the future! ~ Daniel Jordan
