Work continues on 156th Street overpass BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — Motorists on I-5 near north Marysville might have noticed the bridge pillars are already up and the westside ramp leading up to the 156th Street overcrossing is nearing completion, which means that the project as a whole has hit its halfway mark, but those drivers can expect some traffic slowdowns between now and the expected opening of the overcrossing in the fall of this year. After general contractor Guy F. Atkinson Construction started work in August of last year, the bridge’s substructure work was wrapped up by the end of December, as eight drilled shafts — two at each of the bridge’s four piers, each one seven feet in diameter and roughly 120 feet deep — were drilled to form the foundation of the bridge, by being filled with concrete and steel. “It’s an unusual depth,” said city of Marysville Construction Inspector Rick Herzog. “We have a very high water table, though. We’re only about 100 feet above sea level. That same wet ground is what SEE 156TH, PAGE 2

The 156th Street overcrossing’s four pier caps will provide a foundation for the bridge’s superstructure, whose girders could be laid as early as late May.

Forum focuses on fair housing

During a May 2 fair housing forum, local realtor Marvetta Toler suggests dispute resolution mediators for those who feel discriminated against and fear reprisals.

SMOKEY POINT — Residents of and visitors to the Stillaguamish Senior Center received some insights and offered their input on the state of fair housing within Snohomish County on Wednesday, May 2. The Stillaguamish Senior Center served as the site for one of three forums conducted by the Snohomish County Human Services Department, presented on site by Heidi Aggeler and Jen Garner of BBC Research & Consulting to an audience consisting largely of seniors and staff members of regional senior centers, with a couple of area realtors in attendance as well. Debi Lewis, housing supervisor for the Stillaguamish Senior Center, echoed the concerns SEE HOUSING, PAGE 2

made this area such a great place to grow strawberries.” Before February came to a close this year, the aboveground portions of the bridge columns had been poured and formed, while work on the “fascia wall” that will wrap around the bridge columns on the eastside of I-5 began with the start of April. “This wall, unlike the others, is primarily being installed for aesthetic purposes,” said city of Marysville Public Information Officer Doug

Buell. “It’s not a retaining wall so much as it is an architectural wall, installed in part to discourage camping up under the bridge abutment.” Construction of the remaining six structural support earth retaining walls will likewise continue from now through June. “It’s basically panels and rebar mats holding everything in,” Herzog said. Storm drains and water mains have been installed along the seventh retaining wall, as well as the connector roadway between 156th Street NE and Twin Lakes Avenue that’s been built up to sit approximately 10

feet above the surrounding fields. “We’ve got about 700-800 feet of sewer line left to go,” Herzog said. “We’re moving the existing sewer out from under the embankment section of the bridge, for easier access.” In addition to the two city employees on site, Herzog estimated that nine construction workers are involved in the “dirt work” of road-building and wall panel construction, while about five carpenters and five steelworkers are involved in setting up the rebar. Within the next couple of weeks, not only should

the luminaries, curbs and gutters be installed, as well as the paving laid, but the pier caps sitting atop and connecting each pair of columns should provide enough of a foundation for the bridge’s superstructure that girders can be set over I-5 later this month. “Our planners are still reviewing this stage,” said Mike Gallop, development construction engineer for the Washington

State Department of Transportation. “We’ve generally looked at this as a city project with general permits for state right-ofways. The girders will go up at night, probably in the middle of the week, and there will be lane closures.” Gallop complimented the city of Marysville as “very cooperative” in working with WSDOT and characterized the 156th Street overcrossing as a project

that’s gone well so far. This project’s $13 million cost is being funded by a public/private partnership through a Local Improvement District with local property owners, and is intended to relieve traffic congestion on 172nd Street at Smokey Point.

public transportation that make their access to hospitals and shopping more difficult. Sandy Kitchens, apartment manager for the Lincoln School Senior Apartments in Stanwood, acknowledged the concerns voiced by some senior residents who were curious about the parameters of housing discrimination, with those seniors wondering whether housing staff might dismiss their concerns because they’re older. Garner and local realtor Marvetta Toler pointed to the dispute resolution mediators of HUD and Volunteers of America as neutral parties with whom residents can work without fear of reprisals. When one of Toler’s fellow realtors relayed accounts of renters receiving “shotgun” evictions, Lewis advised those renters to contact the Volunteers of America and those landlords to join the Snohomish County

Apartment Operators Association, to ensure that they’re following the legally required process for evictions. “A lot of landlords think it’s just their right to do what they want,” Lewis said. Aggeler acknowledged that one finding of the study so far has been that more people than the statistical norm are willing to take action against unfair housing in Snohomish County, but fewer than that average know who to contact. For the seniors in the audience, this difficulty is compounded by the fact that few felt willing or able to navigate the Internet to find that information. “In spite of the number of organizations that exist to serve them, there’s a barrier there,” Aggeler said. “It could also be fear of losing their housing, if it’s subsidized or depending on their immigration status,” Garner said. “It creates a hidden problem.”

of the realtors in the room, who called for more housing access for adults with disabilities. “Of those who feel discriminated against in terms of housing in Snohomish County, the disabled were by far the largest category,” Garner said. “Right behind that is race, ethnicity and immigration status.” While the Stillaguamish Senior Center’s apartments house seniors older than 62 and adults with disabilities older than 18, Lewis reported having to turn away large numbers of younger families who call her simply because they find themselves without other options. “We need more lowincome federally funded housing,” said Lewis, who noted that even residents of existing senior centers such as hers are feeling the squeeze from reductions in

Experience the magic at Relay for Life


s someone who has relatives, friends and co-workGUEST ers who have fought courageous personal battles against OPINION cancer, I urge you to join me in JON NEHRING the American Cancer Society MARYSVILLE Relay For Life of Marysville/ MAYOR Tulalip as we come together as a community on June 9 to celebrate survivors, remember those who are no longer with us and raise money to find a cure. I attended my first Relay For Life last year at the MarysvillePilchuck High School track, where Tulalip Tribes Chairman Mel Sheldon Jr. and I helped kick off the opening ceremonies. From the masses of smiling people wearing their purple shirts with pride as they rounded the track, to the silent procession of an evening walk brightened by the glow of luminaria, with each illuminated bag bearing the name of someone who has battled cancer, there was an indescribable spirit that gave the event an added sense of purpose. Relay For Life is both a somber and life-affirming event that organizers are working hard to make even bigger and better this year. I hope you’ll become a part of it. There will be tears. There will be laughter. Most of all, there will be hope and celebration of life. That is the magic of Relay. This year’s Relay For Life will be noon to 9 a.m. starting Saturday, June 9 again at the Marysville-Pilchuck High School Stadium track, 5611 108th St. NE. Relay For Life is a familyoriented event during which participants can walk or run around the track, relay-style, between noon Saturday and 9 a.m. Sunday. A team representative is required to be on the track at all times because cancer never sleeps. It may sound like walking or jogging a track for hours is exhausting, but it’s nothing compared to the mental and physical drain that I can only imagine a cancer survivor has to face. It’s encouraging to know that there’s a good chance the people in front of you are themselves cancer survivors. When not walking, participating teams and individuals camp out around the inside of the track, and when they aren’t taking their turn walking, they take part in fun activities with family, neighbors, and co-workers. Relay for Life of Marysville/Tulalip’s goal is to raise $195,000 and sign up 100 teams. Relay For Life thrives on the energy of SEE RELAY, PAGE 5

Renee Roman Nose, Northwest Indian Education Site Manager for Tulalip Tribes, addressed students in the morning sessions and shared “passing up college is like throwing away a lottery ticket worth $1 million in lifetime earnings.”

Over 150 colleges, technical schools, trade schools, military options, and local business leaders were present to talk with students about their options. Members of the Marysville and Tulalip business communities shared their experience, knowledge and expertise, and offered guidance to students as they pondered the many choices they have for their future.

Obtaining food locally

ow far has your food traveled to get to your plate? The average distance food travels is 1,500 miles from the fields to the kitchen. In order to travel that far and still be in a saleable condition, most produce is harvested before it is ripe. This way, it is less apt to bruise or be damaged in transit as well as retain some level of shelflife when it gets to the market place and your home. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recognizes that this is not necessarily the most nutritious, or tastiest, way to acquire our foods. With the new guidelines that the USDA has released for school meals that require more fresh fruits and vegetables be offered

GUEST OPINION ED AYLESWORTH to the students at breakfast and lunch, emphasis is now on obtaining those fruits and vegetables as locally as possible. This provides students with food that will taste better because it was harvested within a few days of consumption, and therefore, more ripe with natural flavor. Arlington Public Schools sees this federal move as a wonder-

ful opportunity to reduce the carbon footprint created by purchasing items produced far away and to feed students food that is more fresh and vitamin-packed. This year, some food was purchased from local farms such as Marshland Orchards in the Snohomish area and processors such as Hendrickson Farms in Marysville. One challenge that comes from this effort is that the growing season in Washington is more limited than that of more southern states. This will require creative thinking and planning to best use the resources we have and supplement as needed with product that is SEE FOOD, PAGE 5

Haunted by lingering effects

t seems that when some processes get started there’s no stopping them. It’s not that they‘re unstoppable. Rather, we don’t muster up the gumption to pull their plugs. Crab traps for instance: not crab-rings or the fold-up kind, but rigid traps that lure crabs in to the bait but don’t let them out again. When a Mission Bar crab trap loses its buoy it becomes an unstoppable fishing machine. First comers are lured in by the scent of bait, which they devour. But they can’t get out so they die to become food for the next wave. In an endless cycle, the scent of death attracts still more crabs that crawl in through one-way openings to join the cannibalistic process of feeding and dying. The process continues until the trap’s frame and web corrodes, leaving a rust-stained mound of shells marking the demise of hundreds of crabs. All it takes is a frayed line or loose knot to trigger another of these ongoing disasters. While lost crab traps do dirty work out of sight, dozens of out-ofcontrol processes take place in plain

sight. Take the neighbor who planted a hedgerow of cute little Douglas fir starts. Or cattle herds that doom overgrazed acreages to channeled erosion. Or parents choosing not to discipline increasingly disobedient children. Hard to stop things once they take hold. Another is the Big Engine. As America celebrates the last days of its horsepower binge, it feeds an unstoppable process of excess consumption. This lingering kissoff to the era of cheap gas has no end in sight. Even with gas topping four bucks per gallon, old guzzlers remain kings of the road while new V-10 pickups sell like hotcakes. Like crab traps, big engines will continue to consume resources for the 250k or so miles it takes to wear them out. There are ways to cut back on out-of-control processes. Try looking ahead: looking ahead by tying

tighter knots and using stronger line. Looking ahead by choosing landscape plants that don’t grow up to haunt us. Or parents looking ahead by figuring out what it takes to raise children before they have them. And looking ahead to how purchases of energy gobblers affect the world around us. Compared with what’s driven elsewhere, it seems that superpowered pickups and SUVs are a uniquely American final fling. Maybe American drivers’ romance with internal combustion needs this final dance with their mechanical mistresses. Could be that heavy metal drivers feel that if this really is the last dance, then they don’t want to have it with some wimpy 4-banger econo-box. Gather ye horsepower while ye may because new mpg standards will soon have us all driving pokey gas-misers. It’s natural to cling to excessive old behaviors. Take space exploration for instance. Once we orbited Earth we voided the old saying, the sky’s the limit. There’s a whole universe to be explored out there so we happily voyaged into space’s fiscal black hole, funding one megabuck

project after the other. When one went wrong, another was designed to find out why. How much could be discovered? As much as the best brains and deepest pockets could find. Meanwhile, needy people on planet Earth ooohed and aaahed at the rockets’ red glare. These grandiose projects take the nature of national art-forms. Like pyramids or renaissance cathedrals. Someday, someone will analyze history’s Great Projects to figure out why people start huge things that take on lives of their own. Maybe steering our attention toward dazzling, mind-blowing, excessive extravaganzas keeps our collective mind off troubles at home. This was done during the Great Depression by building dams. That unstoppable process began in the 1930’s when the Army Corps of Engineers and Department of the Interior went head-to-head to see which could dam the most rivers. It started as justifiable make-work projects to solve unemployment but once society was back to work the process kept right on for fortysome years with no kill-switch or sunset-clause.

Nothing slowed the bizarre competition between the Corps and Interior until they’d turned prime rivers into lakes and run smack into environmental disasters of their own making. To get permits, both the Corps and Interior lied and twisted congressional arms, Interior boldly built Grand Coulee twohundred feet taller than their permit specified. While Grand Coulee is a very nice dam and very useful, it also stands as a monument to programs that lacked controls. Consider crab traps, petroleum consumption, trains, wars, space exploration, medical services and Seattle’s new tunnel. We could do better — personally and as a society but change comes slowly if a nation is coached daily into resisting change. History shows that focus on short term profits and gratification undermines the economy. Worse, it diverts the public’s mind from issues that, if tended, would strengthen our prospects, personally and as a nation.

sustainable program that provides students with food grown and produced locally, as well as provide education regarding the close ties that we all have to farmland for our health and well-being. To make the program sustainable, we want to look at the interconnectivity between farms and homes. Food does not come from plastic bags and milk from containers, but from the hard work of farmers working to coax the rich soil we have into growing vegetables and grasses. The more we understand this as consumers, the more likely we will be able to teach this to our children. In turn, hopefully they

will work to eat well and support farmland continuity so their children will have good food to eat as well. Several of the schools in Arlington, such as Eagle Creek, have school gardens in which the students work, providing them with the joy of seeing the results of planted seeds and the reward of eating food that each had a hand in growing. To grow well, plants need rich soil. In order to assist in that area, the food service program is also working with the city of Arlington to reduce the waste taken to the land fill by implementing a com-

posting program. The program was established in the kitchens of each school several months ago by kitchen staff putting all compostable material into “Slim Jims.” These narrow green containers are filled with food items, tray liners, and anything else that a worm can eat. The material is then picked up and taken to a composting facility on a weekly basis. This effort seems to be making a difference as each kitchen fills at least one 64 gallon composting container a week. Because this is going so well, discussion regarding the expansion of the program to the students is

underway. As a result, less waste is going into the landfill and is being turned into a useable form that could potentially be used to grow fresh vegetables in someone’s garden or farm. Who knows? With our continued efforts to expand local purchases as much as possible, vegetables grown with the compost generated from school kitchens and cafeterias just might be served on your child’s plate at school next fall!

Pilchuck Rentals returns to serve the community

MARYSVILLE — For Lance Brown, reopening his family-owned Pilchuck Rentals business in the area this year was a way to meet an unfilled need. Pilchuck Rentals had originally been in business locally from 1979 through 2000, when it sold out to

United Rentals, but when United left, Brown saw an opportunity. “It left a hole in the rental and sales of construction equipment and landscaping tools in Marysville,” said Brown, who had previously operated out of Arlington and Monroe. Pilchuck Rentals carries Stihl and Honda equipment

including tractors, pressure washers, chippers, front loaders and backhoe excavators. Between Lance Brown and his sons Jason and Jesse, who work at the business with his wife Becky, he estimated that the family staff has 70 years of combined experience in the field. “We don’t just rent out

tools,” Lance Brown said. “We make sure we’re giving you the right tools.” Lance noted that the Brown family has been a fixture of the area since the early 1900s, when his grandfather owned a meat market. Brown’s father followed by building boats and trailers locally, so Lance is proud to be able to carry

on that connection by serving small contractors and homeowners whose business he believes has been neglected. “We’re here because the community wanted us

back,” Lance Brown said. Pilchuck Rentals is located at 9114 State Ave. in Marysville. For more information, call them at 360322-7760 or log onto www.

Arlington Depot opens

ARLINGTON — The brand new visitor information center and restroom facility located near Legion Park in downtown Arlington, was officially opened to the public during a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 28, hosted by the city of Arlington. The facility, which is adjacent to Centennial Trail, includes a meeting room that is free for use by nonprofit organizations as well as a foyer with local visitor information. The building sits on what was once a railroad area and is now frequented by visitors walking and bicycling through downtown Arlington, but the image of the facility as a train depot remains. A railroad crossing sign reads “Centennial Trail” and the meeting room houses local artwork depicting trains. The ribbon-cutting event began with a bike ride on the trail and included some vintage cars and machinery, free popcorn and live music from the Brass Menagerie Band in the lot near the building. The antiques were borrowed from Brent and Connie McKinley and Mike Thomas. Locals of all ages gathered around in support of the new building and

many purchased shirts stating “Meet me in Arlington” that used artwork from local artist Caroline Sumpter. “This will help the businesses down here so much,” said MJ Drush, president of the Downtown Arlington Business Association. “For families using the trail to walk downtown, they can stop and eat or get ice cream. We are the only place on the trail where the restroom is downtown and not in a remote setting.” Drush mentioned that local community events would also benefit from the location of the new restrooms, especially those that take place at Legion Park. “The farmer’s market, the car show, the street fair. These could all use a public restroom,” said Drush. City of Arlington Recreation Manager Sarah Lopez was impressed with how many people showed interest in the facility. “This is a really good turnout,” she said. “Everyone is glad to have the restrooms here and downtown.” Lopez agreed that the new facility will be beneficial for the city’s events. “It’s nice because we won’t have to bring in porta-potties,” Lopez said. City Council member Marilyn Oertle spoke during the dedication of the building.

Tomahawks fall to the Bearcats


MONROE — Thunderclouds and rain had spectators running for cover during the Marysville-Pilchuck baseball away game against Monroe on May 1. Despite the unusual downpour during the fourth inning, M-P and Monroe played a complete game that ended in an 8-2 loss for the Tomahawks in their final regular season game. The weather may have been a factor, but so was a call that left a Monroe batter safe at third with bases loaded against M-P in the bottom of the fourth. With no more strike-outs from M-P, the inning ended in two more runs for the Bearcats with the scoreboard at 5-0 by the end of the fourth inning. Luckily, M-P returned with two runs scored in the last few innings, but it wasn’t quite enough to clinch a victory for them as Monroe was also able to score an additional three runs as well. This was the Tommies’ third game against Monroe, following a doubleheader on Friday, April 27. Monroe defeated the Tomahawks in the early game of the doubleheader, a close one with a final score of 7-5. The Tommies served the Bearcats a rough defeat in the second game by scoring seven in

the bottom of the fifth, giving them a lead up by 10. Despite the most recent loss to Monroe, M-P still ranks high in league play. The Tomahawks are the number two seed in the Wesco North 4A division, ranking just behind Lake Stevens High School. The Vikings remained undefeated until April 18, when the Stanwood Spartans (No. 5 in the Wesco North 4A division) dealt them their first loss of the season, a 3-2 upset. Marysville-Pilchuck has gone 10-5 since starting the season, including 18-0, 6-1 and 7-3 wins over Arlington during the last week of April. Since the M-P record is 10-5 league and 13-6 overall and the Bearcats record is only 3-12 league and 5-15 overall, their series defeat came as a surprise. The Tomahawks are set to play in the division championships, though the next date and time was not determined as of May 3. The Tomahawks were set to play Cascade High School in a home game on May 5 at 3 p.m. as the first game in the district championships. The final two games in districts are set for 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Everett Memorial Stadium on Thursday, May 10. The state championships are set for May 25-26 at GESA stadium in Pasco.

Marysville Getchell High School golf captain Stephanie English.

MARYSVILLE — This season marks the first for the Marysville Getchell High School girls varsity golf team, and the last for their star player Stephanie English who moves on to Central Washington University this fall. English, a senior, has been playing for her school golf team for three years, the first as part of the MarysvillePilchuck team and second on a combined team that included Marysville Getchell players. The 2011-2012 school year marked the first for MG’s varsity sports, which meant that English was the only returning varsity player this spring for her golf team, which wasn’t bad for the younger players. “I try to take them under my wing and share the things I’ve learned,” said English. “My nickname out here is Mama Bear,” she laughed. But despite her clear success on the green — she is the number one player on her team — she still had to start somewhere. “My dad has always played golf. It’s always been in my life,” said English. “When I was a kid he would have me chip out there in the yard.” English began playing golf in her sophomore year and realized quickly

that she would have to harness some of her strength. “I’ve always had a lot of power in my swing,” she said. “At first I wanted to hit the ball as hard as I could, but when you first start out that’s not a good thing. The ball never goes straight.” So in order to build up her talents she started small — she practiced her putting and chipping. “I wanted to have the rest of my game intact before showing off,” she said. When English began her high school golf career she was scoring in the bottom of her group, but by the end of her first season, she was already the number one junior varsity golfer. She started varsity the following year and climbed from the number six spot to the number four spot. And this year, as a senior, she has been number one for the duration of the season. “Her contributions to our team are endless, especially when it comes to Stableford points she earns in a match,” said Jaci LeGore Hodgins, MG girls’ golf coach. “She played a key role in us beating Oak Harbor in one of our league matches because she was the medalist and scored double the points of most of our team.” English spends a lot of time pushing herself to improve. “I love that I am my own competi-

tion,” said English. “I mean, you do play with other people, but you don’t rely on other people.” Even though her time spent on the course is solitary, she also makes sure to help fellow teammates, a trait not lost on her coach. “Our team is young and inexperienced, but such a wonderful group of girls and Stephanie is the perfect captain to lead this team in our inaugural year as Getchell’s first girls’ golf team,” LeGore Hodgins said. “I try to keep things light-hearted and I try to keep the mood upbeat, but still throw in advice,” said English. Although she loves pushing herself to improve, there is still one major drawback to the game. “Well, it is an outside sport,” she joked, gesturing to the clouds. “And in spring we practice no matter what the weather is like.” English said she is looking forward to her freshman year at CWU. As an MG BioMed Academy and full-time Running Start student, she plans on majoring in clinical physiology and hopes to one day use that degree to become a physical therapist. And although the school doesn’t have a collegiate golf team, she hopes to join their intramural one. On the question of going pro, “You never know. I like to keep my options open,” she said.

Marysville students learn to help the Earth

MARYSVILLE — The Jones Creek Environmental Learning Center was abuzz with activity on April 27, when more than 100 elementary students spent the morning hours in the Allen Creek tributary area planting trees in order to “help the Earth.” Donning rubber boots and wielding shovels, the fourthand fifth-grade students from the Marysville Cooperative Educational Program at Marshall Elementary — plus a number of parents and volunteers — chose from a selection of native tree species and went to work. The tree-planting exercise was part of a larger community action organization called Project Seawolf Coastal Protection, which originally aimed to help save the orca population in Puget Sound and around the world. These days, Project Seawolf organizers host tree plantings and salmon habitat recovery and other educational programs. “These projects are important because they introduce children to environmental stewardship,” said Michael

Kundu, volunteer director of Project Seawolf. The students planted 1,500 seedlings of primarily native deciduous species such as red alder, shore pine, poplar, aspen and vine maple. “It’s been great for the kids to come out, get dirty, get muddy and have fun — and it’s a part of their science curriculum,” said Kundu, who added that the organization has hosted tree-plantings in Marysville before. “We’ve had kids come back years later and see their tree and say, ‘It’s as tall as me now,’” he said. Many of the kids were students of Hank Palmer who said that the MCEP makes a specific effort to spend time on science in the classroom. “Kids here learn science four days a week,” said Palmer, who added that a lot of schools focus on math and reading due to standardized testing requirements. “Last year 88 percent passed the MSP in science, which is a very high number.” The MSP (Measuring Student Progress) is a state standardized test for grades 3-8. The state’s MSP scores in science usually aver-

age closer to 50-60 percent, according to the Office of the Superintendent. “Science is really important to us,” said Palmer. “And the kids do really well with it.” The kids said they enjoyed the tree-planting exercise and wanted to help the Earth. “It’s good to help the ani-

mals that are living out here stay alive,” said fourth-grader Aneliese Jones. Gracie Wilkinson, also in fourth grade, said she was helping plant trees because trees help us. “They produce oxygen we need to breathe,” she said. Another student liked

planting trees to help the ecosystem. “It helps the animals, the orca whales. All the water goes to them,” said Abby Wilson, a fourth-grader. Students weren’t the only ones benefiting from the event. Young volunteers also made the trip, including former MCEP student and

recent Marysville Getchell High School graduate Nicole Reynolds. “This is my fifth year volunteering,” said Reynolds, who has helped in classrooms and in camps. “There’s always a lot of field trips and parent participation. This school really helped me learn.”

Healthy Kids Day returns to YMCA

Josiah Frank and Jessica Callagan practice competitive cupstacking at the Marysville YMCA April 28. to six months before they’re matched with blind partners, with whom they train for about two weeks.” Jessica Callagan of the Marysville Cooperative Educational Program at Marshall Elementary practiced quick-thinking activities such as competitive cupstacking with youngsters like Josiah Frank to help kids exercise their brains in addition to their bodies. “One is just as important as the other, and you should be giving both of them a workout everyday,” said Callagan, who touted the Co-op’s “seamless melding” into Marshall.

While the Girl Scouts set out a table full of neon pipecleaners and strings of plastic stars to let youngsters express themselves through self-made tiaras and jewelry, Snohomish County Dairy Ambassador Erin Peek quizzed passersby on the various health benefits of milk and other dairy products. “Some kids don’t want to drink milk, but building strong bones and teeth appeals to them,” said Peek, who attends Arlington High School. “For older kids, chocolate milk is a good substitute for sports drinks.”


MARYSVILLE — The Marysville YMCA offered a festival of information and activities during their annual Healthy Kids Day on Saturday, April 28. David VanBeek, assistant fire marshal of Marysville, was on hand to hand out slightly more than 100 bicycle helmets to families who needed them, for a suggested donation of $10 apiece or less, depending on what they could afford. “We’ve got sizes to fit toddlers to extra-large,” VanBeek said. VanBeek also passed on household fire safety tips and advised everyone to wear lifejackets. “Unfortunately, it seems like the first really hot days of summer are always marked by a drowning,” VanBeek said. Tawna Crispin offered kids a chance to connect with a more cuddly side of safety, as they petted some of the Puppy Guides of Snohomish County. “We’re raising seven puppies for local folks right now,” Crispin said. “Their formal training is about four
