Tour looks to Arlington’s future










Vol. 123, No. 34


ARLINGTON — City of Arlington officials explored its natural and urban resources during a tour of its parks and streets on Thursday, April 26. City Natural Resources Manager Bill Blake led the three-van caravan through their riverfront master planning tour starting with the stormwater park adjacent to Haller Park. Blake suggested that part of the grassy areas could be utilized as an off-leash dog park, while he explained how the stages of stormwater filtration, from wetlands and future forests to gravel, have already reduced the sediment going into the Stillaguamish River by two-thirds. “In 10 years, you won’t even be able

to see across this park,” Blake said, noting that the seedling trees would grow quickly and thickly. Blake acknowledged that contractors had not set the wetland at the proper level, but assured his fellow city officials that the adjustments would not cost extra. The level adjustment will make the stormwater park better prepared to handle flooding. Blake and city Recreation Manager Sarah Lopez discussed what might be done with the multi-story “roundhouse,” or “pole house” as it’s also called, next to the stormwater park. “As a general rule, you don’t tear down a building in a floodplain unless you know what will be in its place,” said Blake, who believes that it could SEE FUTURE, PAGE 2

MARYSVILLE — Those driving along State Avenue shortly after 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, might have been surprised to see men in Civil War uniforms at the Marysville Cemetery firing their muskets into the sky. But that’s exactly what they would have seen, as a local family gathered with friends and Civil War re-enactors and stood near the grave of their long-dead ancestor — Cyrus Marcus Armbrust — to perform a traditional Civil War memorial for the Union soldier who died more than 100 years ago. “I think it went great,” said Corey Stinson of Arlington, who led the memorial. “My

whole point was just to do something that I needed to do.” Stinson is a distant relative of Armbrust’s — his mother is Karen Rodin of Stanwood, Armbrust’s fourth cousin. Rodin was the one who discovered through Ancestry. com that Armbrust was her distant relative and that he was buried in the Marysville Cemetery. Since her son, Stinson, and his children had previously performed in Civil War re-enactments, she was glad to find that Armbrust was a Civil War veteran. Stinson, a member of the Washington Civil War Association, has since begun re-enacting as Armbrust’s unit — the 11th Pa. Infantry

HONOR FROM PAGE 1 Co. 1. That particular unit also included several brothers and cousins of Armbrust and Stinson is proud that he and his four sons can represent several of his ancestors at once. The family, along with other Civil War re-enactors, dressed in traditional uniforms and carried .62 caliber Model 1842 Springfield muskets. They stood silently while Stinson and Rodin spoke a few words about Armbrust. “I am proud to say that I am Cyrus’ fourth cousin,” said Rodin. Stinson placed a new Grand Army of the Republic marker on the grave and Rodin stood holding an American flag. A flag was also placed in the marker, which read “G.A.R. 1861-1865.” The unit then performed a traditional salute, in which the group of 10 fired their muskets into the air. Bystanders took photos and video of the event. “We could have just come and stuck the marker in the ground, but we wanted to do more,” said Adam Carter, who represented 1st. Sgt. H. Adam Delave. Carter said that honoring Armbrust in April is appropriate since it was the month in which he was born. Last year marked the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and for some, the memorial was a way for people of this generation to honor those of the past.

Corey Stinson of Arlington faces the men portraying the Civil War company of his ancestor Cyrus Marcus Armbrust during a memorial ceremony at the Marysville Cemetery on April 28. “This was very fascinating, it’s good to not lose our appreciation for history and honor those veterans for what they did,” said Colleen Cooley of Snohomish, one of the audience members. Others felt that honoring Armbrust was like honoring a family member who served the nation. “You don’t know who your ancestors are, but then you find them and you feel like you know them. You get so involved that today was emotional for me,” said Rodin, who wore a medal on her lapel, showing that she was a descendent of someone who went through Camp Curtin, a military training camp in Pennsylvania. “You feel for someone you never knew,” she said. “But you really feel like you do know them.”


Mud Run. At the same time, Blake pointed out that everything in the Country Charm area is being designed to accommodate flooding, including the picnic tables that have been anchored to the ground. The tour wrapped up with visits to possible riverfront restaurant sites, first at the trailer park east of Haller Park, then at the Cascade Division Court, both overlooking the Stillaguamish River. “We’re such a rich community to have all of this,” Nelson said. “We can make this a healthy community for generations to come if we can preserve these green spaces for kids to play on, so that they can have what we had,” said Blake, who recalled playing in the Country Charm area as a child. “People may look at these things and think of them as our past, but they’re our future.”

be used for special events or as an environmental learning center, while Lopez expressed the desire to see it turned into the new city Recreation Department office. “It’s a landmark,” Arlington City Council member Debora Nelson said. “You tell someone to meet you by the roundhouse, and everyone knows where that is.” Blake identified E. Gilman Avenue, as well as the intersection of Broadway Street and Haller Avenue, as points of untapped economic potential, since those roads are much roomier than the levels of traffic that they currently serve. Nelson would like to see boulevard trees and a more pedestrian-friendly feel to E. Gilman Avenue, while city Planning Commission Chair Bruce Angell agreed with Community Development

Director David Kuhl that it would be well-suited for residential and retail mixed-use development. Blake admitted that the Country Charm area needs some road improvements, at least enough to allow two cars to pass each other on the way in, while touting the measures that have already been taken, including the installation of 24 fire pits and a boulevard of fruit trees to mark the location of the buried pipeline. “We’re looking to extend the gravel road by the end of the summer, and this area will have the same caretaker as the pole house,” said Blake, who plans to link all the city’s parks through a pedestrian-friendly trail system eventually. “This area is perfect for large outdoor events,” said Lopez, who had applied to make the Country Charm area a site for the Survivor

Parker speaks out on Violence Against Women Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Tulalip Tribes Vice Chair Deborah Parker joined U.S. Senators Patty Murray, Barbara Boxer and Amy Klobuchar in advocating the passage of the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act on Wednesday, April 25, one day before the Senate passed the VAWA reauthorization bill by a vote of 68-31. Parker and Murray, who represents Washington state in the U.S. Senate, spoke at a press conference in Washington, D.C., on April 25, about the provisions that will provide new protections for victims of domestic violence that were not previously covered by VAWA. Among these improvements is the ability for local justice officials in tribal communities to bring nonIndians who live and commit crimes against women on tribal lands to justice. Currently, federal prosecutors decline to prosecute a majority of violent crimes that occur in Indian country, including a large number of sexual abuse related cases. Parker delivered a firsthand account of her abuse and the importance of VAWA. “I am a Native American

statistic,” Parker said. “I am a survivor of sexual and physical violence.” Parker was first assaulted as a toddler in the 1970s by a man who was never convicted. “I was the size of a couch cushion,” said Parker, who counted herself as “one of the many girls violated and attacked by a man who had no boundaries or regards for a little child’s life, my life.” In the early 1980s, when she was still a youngster, Parker was babysitting her aunt’s children when she found herself hiding them, and herself, from the men who had followed her aunt home to rape her. “I could not save my auntie,” Parker said on April 25. “I only heard her cries. Today is the first time that I have ever shared this story. She died at a young age. The perpetrators were never prosecuted.” The shortfalls of law enforcement on the reservation as she grew up motivated Parker to attend college in the early 1990s, during which time she studied criminal justice address the fact that she saw so many other Native American women’s lives shortened. “However, I am only one,

and we still have no real protection for women on our reservations,” said Parker, who started a program to help young female survivors of abuse and assault when she returned from college in the late 1990s. “We have saved many lives during the creation of this program. However, one of my girls, Sophia, was murdered on my reservation by her partner. I still remember this day very strongly. Yet another one of our young girls took her life.” As Parker noted that “a majority of our girls” have struggled with repeated incidents of sexual and domestic violence, she posed a question to Congress. “Why did you not protect me or my family?” Parker asked. “Why is my life, and the lives of so many other Native American women, less important?” Murray cited statistics showing that, in one year alone, 34 percent of Native American women will be raped, 39 percent will be subjected to domestic violence and 56 percent will marry a non-Indian “who most likely will not be liable, or held liable,” for any violent crime committed if these protections are not included in this legislation. On April 26, Murray expressed the hope that the U.S. House of Representatives could follow the Senate’s example in passing the VAWA reautho-

who have needlessly been left to fend for themselves,” Murray said. “Expanding coverage for domestic violence should never have been controversial. Where

a person lives, who they love, or what their citizenship status may be should not determine whether or not their perpetrators are brought to justice.”

Letter to the editor Thank you for supporting Lakewood schools On behalf of the Lakewood School District Staff and Board of Directors, I want to sincerely thank the voters, volunteers and elected officials for their active support of our students and schools. The quality of our communities is inextricably connected to the quality of our schools. With the support received from this past levy election, that connection is strengthened. Renewal of our Replacement Levy will provide support to our general fund programs and services for the next four years. The passage of this levy also means we now can avoid having to make staffing reductions and adversely impact class size. In addition, it provides the opportunity to maintain student cocurricular and extra-curricular programs, move forward with needed textbook adoptions and also attend to general maintenance needs of our facilities. The Capital Projects and Technology Levy funds will be utilized over the course of the next two years to address some of our major facility deficiencies and continue our quest to have all classrooms outfitted with current technology systems. With an interest to engage our commu-

nity and seek their feedback, the district will also use a portion of these levy dollars to embark upon preliminary planning for a potential bond measure to be sought in 2014 to modernize our high school. The Board remains committed to providing the best possible educational experience that can be delivered to our students with available resources. We will continue to look for ways to economize and reduce expenses without compromising the quality of instruction or learning opportunities for students. We are grateful to the many hardworking volunteers from the Lakewood Levy Committee whose dedicated efforts effectively communicated the importance of passing these levies. In the end, it is our students who stand to gain from the efforts of these people and from the resolve demonstrated by our citizens to preserve the tradition of excellent education in Lakewood Schools. Again, thank you very much for your ongoing support of our schools, our students and their future. With deep appreciation, Dennis Haddock, Ed. D. Superintendent, Lakewood School District No. 306

Let’s talk about greenhouses I always look forward to reading Bob Graef ’s columns. But I’m scared to death that you are going to run out of subjects to talk about. I would like to comment on your recent column dated April 11, 2012 titled, “Learning from Neighbors.” This is in reference to the greenhouses in British Columbia. Evidently the one thing the Canadians didn’t tell you is the government’s great support of agriculture through farm subsidies. The other thing the Canadians have going for them is abundant, cheap, natural gas for heating the greenhouses. You asked the question, why don’t we grow more hothouse vegetables in the U.S.? It’s basically all about money. To many growers, there is more money growing ornamentals (flowers, etc.). Plus, Americans don’t want to spend too much money on food. Those cheap Mexican tomatoes are good enough for salads anyway. Of course you know that in the state of Washington, we have the highest minimum wage in the nation. So all labor costs are high. The other point about available knowledge to grow hothouse vegetables. It is not a problem in this country. Yet, you don’t see many greenhouse vegetable growing operations locally or in this state. By the way, WSU is not much help when it comes to information and help in growing hothouse and hydroponic crops. They generally refer you to Cornell University. There might be local gardeners that might want to grow hothouse crops. If you check California, Arizona and Alaska, you will see a lot of hydroponics operations. Dr. Merle Jensen, born and raised

in Marysville, Wash., has worked with hothouse and John Campbell hydroponics Marysville grown crops in Arizona for years. He helped develop the agricultural part of Disneyworld in Florida. He worked with NASA in ways to grow vegetables under weightlessness in outer space. Also, during WWII, the U.S. Army used hydroponics growing in the South Pacific to supply vegetables to the troops. I understand that today our military has portable hydroponics growing units that can be moved wherever needed in the world. I learned to grow greenhouse tomatoes and cucumbers in Alaska back in the ‘60s and ‘70s. My first crop of greenhouse tomatoes was in 1975 here in Marysville. I picked the first ripe tomato on May 20. I harvested over 2,000 pounds that season in a 16’ x 50’ greenhouse. Of course I used an oil fed, hot air furnace for heat and fuel was 42 cents a gallon. Today the price of fuel is over $4 a gallon. Gas is not practical to use here at my farm. After a few years of growing tomatoes in soil, I started to have disease problems. I tried hydroponics, but it was complicated and expensive. I discontinued hothouse growing because the cost to grow was more than the people wanted to pay. The University of Alaska and the Department of Agriculture did a lot of research on growing vegetable crops with hydroponics and also in total environmentally controlled buildings. You mentioned the Canadians use bees for pollinating tomatoes. Generally in greenhouses in this country you pollinate tomatoes

Guest opinion

by vibrating blossoms using a backpack blower. It is more efficient than bees. If you’re growing true European, burpless, seedless cucumbers, you can’t use bees. You asked why we don’t see greenhouse operations locally. Did you check with Smith Gardens in Marysville, Sunnyside Nursery in Marysville, Flower World in Woodinville area, or Joe’s Gardens in Bellingham? Most of this is all about money; whether you get enough return on your investment. If you get the government to help then it’s easier. Bob, the issue of government help/subsidies is a big issue in this country. For a future article on your opinion page, I’d like you to look into the U.S. government subsidies to cotton farmers in Brazil, at $147,000,000 a year. Check that out and report back. In the fourth column of your letter you mentioned that in hydroponics you don’t need pesticides or herbicides. Since many home gardeners are reading these letters and what you write is informational and educational, I thought we should talk about the term, pesticide. As you know, an unwanted weed is a pest, so a weed killer is called a herbicide. A non-beneficial bug/insect is a pest and the bug killer is called insecticide. A detrimental fungus is a pest also and so the fungus killer is called a fungicide and so forth and so on. All of these pest killers are called pesticides. Bob, with all of your knowledge, you’re just the person to start a little greenhouse operation. In this country, we do have the ability and knowledge and there are areas where there are hothouse operations and they can make money at it. We need to talk more about the subject.

Marysville Soroptimists warn that sex trafficking happens everywhere

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville chapter of Soroptimist International wants the community to know that sex trafficking doesn’t just happen overseas or in larger cities, but it also happens right in their own neighbors. Sarah Collins of Everett has experienced this horrifying phenomenon firsthand, as her daughter Kelsey, a sex trafficking victim, has been missing for three years. Kelsey Collins turned 18 shortly before leaving home the day before Mother’s Day in 2009, ostensibly to catch a bus to visit her boyfriend, who said she never arrived. Sarah Collins joined forensic nurse examiner Paula Newman-Skomski and advocate specialist Azra Grudic, both of the Providence Intervention Center for Assault & Abuse, in addressing the Marysville chapter of Soroptimist International and several other community members about sex trafficking on April 10. “Kelsey’s life wasn’t always easy, but this can happen to any teen,” said Sarah Collins, who explained that Kelsey was first drawn into prostitution at the age of 16. Sarah recounted the difficulties of her and Kelsey’s home lives, from Kelsey’s

“Kelsey’s life wasn’t always easy, but this can happen to any teen.” Sarah Collins, Mother of Kelsey Collins alcoholic father, whom Sarah divorced when Kelsey was only 2 years old, to the man whom Sarah initially thought of as her “white knight,” before he abused Sarah’s oldest daughters and beat Sarah herself into unconsciousness. “She was 7 years old when we got new identities and new Social Security Numbers,” Sarah Collins said. “It wasn’t easy on me, and I was 42.” After both mother and daughter suffered a number of medical ailments, and Kelsey was subsequently molested by fellow minors, she began running away from home. According to NewmanSkomski, sexual predators key in on young people who have compromised senses of self and normalcy. “Within 30 seconds, they can identify someone who’s vulnerable,” NewmanSkomski said. Sarah Collins not only agreed that Kelsey was vulnerable, but also criticized a system that she sees as punishing underage prostitutes more than it does the men who buy them.

“The stigma of having been a prostitute is so great,” said Sarah Collins, who identified 2008 as the first year that anyone treated her daughter “like a victim, rather than a criminal.” Collins echoed the calls of Newman-Skomski and Grudic for a system that responds more proactively to sex trafficking, with more safe houses, more social workers and more nurses who know how to work with such victims. “These girls will protect these guys,” NewmanSkomski said. “Some girls will even recruit other girls. It’s difficult to get full disclosures from them. You have to learn their language, and ask them to tell you what they like about their boyfriends, so they won’t see you as the enemy.” Grudic warned that possible indications that young girls may have fallen into prostitution and sex trafficking are older boyfriends, extra phones, dramatic changes in appearance and evasiveness about their whereabouts. “We’re looking into posttraumatic stress disorder counselors for this type of trauma, but it’s only relatively recently that these girls have been looked at like victims,” NewmanSkomski said. “We went through family counseling, but the issue of her being trafficked was

Dan Kristiansen sent a letter to be read aloud at the Soroptimist event, in which he wrote that sex trafficking is “21st century slavery,” prevalent in 18 Washington counties, that he believes necessitates the passage of zero-tolerance laws.

Cougars find success on the track BY LAUREN SALCEDO

LAKEWOOD — The Lakewood Cougars Track and Field team have been on top this season with two successful meets last week — the Cascade Conference meet on April 26 and the Tomahawk Classic on April 28.

Lakewood women’s placed second overall in the Cascade Conference meet and Lakewood men’s placed first. “Many of our athletes will finish their season today, but we have some outstanding athletes who will continue their season

at the Tomahawk Invite and at the League and District Championships in May at Cedarcrest High School and, if all goes well, at the state meet at Mt. Tahoma High School,” said LHS Co-Head Coach Monica Rooney on April 26. The Cascade Conference

meet yielded several firstplace times for the Cougars girls including the 4x200 meter relay team of Chase Gormley, Ariel Jensen, DeAsia Callanan Seegars and Ashley Orr who came through with a time of 1:54.30. Ilyssa Haunreiter took third place for the 100 meter hurdles with a final time of 18.70. Jensen also gave Lakewood a thirdplace time in the 100 meter dash with 14.08. Hailey Duitsman and Celine Espinoza took first and third places with times of 5:59.10 and 6:18.90, respectively. Callanan Seegers helped cinch another second place in the 4x100 meter relay with team members Dana Arenz, Taylor Studzinski and Kiley Brown. Brown also took second place in the 300 meter hurdles, with teammate Riley Miller following close behind, with times of 55.41 and 58.42 respectively. Brehanna Meigs took second place in the 400 meter dash with a time of 1:34.87. The Cougars swept the girls 800 meter run, with Rachel Cundy in first, Darby Throndsen in second, Chloe McCann in third and Rachel Sowards in fourth. Jensen and Callanan Seegers took second and third places in the 200 meter dash with times of 28.69 and 29.03.

Megan Knibbe tied for first place in the high jump and Studzinski managed to take the first place in both the pole vault and triple jump. Shantel St. Jean took third place in the javelin and Austin Winter placed third in the shot put. Similar success was found on the Cougar boys team, with several first place times. Lakewood swept the 110 meter hurdles, with Jordan DeGroot in first, Ryan Whitehead in second, Tyler Dalton in third, Sawyer Almasi in fourth and James Fernandes in fifth. Whitehead also managed to place third in the 100 meter dash with a time of 12.20 and first in the 300 meter hurdles with a time of 44.77. DeGroot placed third in the 300 meter hurdles with a time of 46.80. Mitchell Darrah and Kris Mugrage placed first and second in the 1,600 meter run with times of 4:40.5 and 4:58, respectively. The relays were another area of success for the team. They took first place in the boys 4x100 meter relay with Donovan Evans, Nolan Bingaman, Justin Peterson and Keana Jackson bringing a time of 46.83. Jackson also placed third in the 200 meter dash with a time of 25.31 and second in the triple jump. The 800 meter was also a win for Lakewood,

with Tyler Duitsman placing first with a time of 2:12.87 and Alex Cooper placing second with a time of 2:18.84. An 11:56 time for his 3,200 meter run put Lakewood’s Nick Cooper in third place. Cougars placed second in the 4x400 meter relay, a team with DeGroot, Dalton, Almasi and Bryce Shepard finishing in a time of 4:05.88. Justin Peterson placed first in the high jump and Matt He and Paulmer Gregory tied for second. Lakewood swept the pole vault competition, with Cody Cao in first and Aaron Nech and Christian Harris tied for second. Peterson and Blake Watts made second and third in the long jump. Tristan Nelson and David Otte topped the discus in first and second place. Otte was also first place in shot put, with Dylan Donohue placing second. Conor O’Kinsella placed first in the javelin and Evans placed second. The men’s team placed third in the Tomahawk Classic on April 28 and the women’s team placed seventh. Memorable performances from the Cougars during that meet include Peterson in first place for the men’s high jump and triple jump, O’Kinsella in first for the men’s javelin, and Cundy in first for the women’s 3200 meter run.

Eagles fall to Stanwood 9-5 BY LAUREN SALCEDO

ARLINGTON — The Arlington High School baseball team has faced some fierce opponents in the last two weeks. They lost their first game against Stanwood High School in a close competition ending in a final score of 9-5 on April 27. Although the Eagles were defeated, they still played a solid game with sophomore Ryan Walker and junior Bret Hilker both 3-for-4 with two doubles. After the series against the Spartans, slated to end on May 2, the Eagles’ season will come to a close. Final scores and standings can be found at “That was a really tough series,” said AHS Head Coach Scott Striegel, of their games against M-P. “But we’re facing up against Stanwood and they are ranked sort of in the middle. I think we can do well.” Stanwood’s current record is 4-9 league, 6-10 overall. As of April 30, the Eagles record is 3-10 league, 6-12 overall. They face their final two games against the Spartans at Stanwood High School on May 1 and May 2 at 4 p.m. The Eagles lost a tough series against league second Marysville-Pilchuck on Saturday. The series against Marysville started with an

18-0 defeat on their home turf on April 18 and ended with a 7-3 loss on April 28, a game that had been rescheduled due to a rainout. “Eighteen was kind of a big number, but it wasn’t a sloppy game,” said M-P Head Coach Kurt Koshelnik. The Tomahawks managed to clinch another victory during the second game of the series on April 20, with a final score of 6-1.”Arlington played much better, but with baseball you really never know. It can be different day by day.” The final game on Saturday had three errors from Arlington, which helped the Tomahawks, but the Eagles still managed to

put offensive pressure on M-P throughout all nine innings. Senior Riley Tracy was 2-for-3 in that game. M-P ranks second in the Wesco North 4A division and now, after three losses to the Tomahawks, Arlington ranks fifth of six in the division. Before the series against M-P, the Eagles managed to completely sweep the Monroe Bearcats in the series that started with junior Garrett Atkinson pitching a complete game and striking out 11 Bearcats with no earned runs. Walker also had a memorable performance against Monroe when he struck out five and went 3-for-4 with two RBI at the plate.

Pioneer Elementary celebrates Earth Day


ARLINGTON – Pioneer Elementary School students spent last week celebrating the Earth and giving back to it as well. In honor of Earth Day on April 22, students at Pioneer spent the following week honoring the Earth by writing thank you letters, performing nature-related plays and dedicating time and energy working in the Pioneer Elementary School Outdoor Classroom and Science Garden. The mission of Pioneer Elementary School is to create a sustainable and acces-

sible environmentally sound and eco-friendly Outdoor Classroom within the existing on-site wetlands and Science Garden, according to Beth Trafton, secondgrade teacher at Pioneer. The wetlands include a retention pond, surrounding native trees and plants, ponds and pathways. The outdoor classroom is an on-campus wetland where indigenous plants and animals are ready scientific specimens for students to observe, collect and record their data. The science garden hosts an orchard with 12 fruit trees, raised beds, composting bins and a gardening shed.

Last week, several firstand second- grade students went out to the outdoor classroom with six blank pages and, with a little direction, sketched native plants for trail guides. A local company, Northwest Sawdust, donated two large truck-loads of alder chips and “bucket brigades” helped spread the chips on the trails. Other students cleaned out old leaves and overgrowth from the raised plant beds, and one parent donated dried compost to be used for mixing with soil to refill those beds. Students also worked on re-sanding the track box and cleaning

out the bat houses. “We’re trying to have the community be as much a part of this as we can,” said Trafton. “And also have the kids learn how to treat the Earth.” Some of the school’s outdoor Earth Week activities were rained out, however, the respect for Mother Earth carried on indoors. Secondgrade students in Annette Braaten and Trafton’s class performed Reader Theater plays about the Earth,

which they presented for the younger students. Many classroom teachers had students write thank you letters addressed to the Earth, which were put on display in the building. These events were not only in conjunction with Earth Day, but also coincided with the 10-year anniversary of the creation of the outdoor classroom and science garden. “We are celebrating this anniversary with a week-

long event that includes trimming, clearing brush and litter and rebarking the trails with alder chips provided by Northwest Sawdust,” said Trafton. The funding for the Earth Week events and activities came from a variety of sources including a Wal Mart grant, an Audobon Society grant, an art grant (for the trail guide sketching), the PTSA (for the reusable kids-sized tools), local company Cuz Concrete and more.
