MARYSVILLE — More than two dozen volunteers from the Marysville branch of Keller Williams and their associates teamed up to tackle Comeford Park as part of their fourth annual “RED Day” international day of service. Eddie Quintero has been in real estate since 1991, but Thursday, May 10, marked his first RED Day — which stands for “Renew, Energize and Donate” — as a Keller Williams managing broker. “The easiest part has been pulling weeds,” Quintero said. “The hardest has been doing the edge work between the grass and the pavement, as we’ve had a few malfunctions there,” he laughed. “None of this has been hard at all, though. It’s

wonderful to give back to the community, and this is the perfect day for it.” Miguel Lugan of LeaderOne Financial was also excited to be taking part in his first RED Day, even though he found aspects of the work challenging. “These shrubs are prickly, so I get stuck by them every time I try to prune them,” Lugan laughed, before turning serious. “Like Keller Williams, LeaderOne Financial wants people to know that we care about the community that we’re part of.” Realtor Sandy Chambers has been doing RED Days since they started, and has managed to rope her son Tony into roughly half of them. Tony took advantage of his summer break from

MARYSVILLE — In spite of volunteer support that included local students from as far away as Lakewood High School, the annual National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive on Saturday, May 12, yielded a slightly smaller haul for the Marysville Community Food Bank than previous years. Marysville Community Food Bank Director Dell Deierling reported that they received 24,997 pounds of food that Saturday, down 7 percent from the 27,013 pounds of food in 2011, 32,300 pounds in 2010 and 40,000 pounds in 2009.

“Although it is a decrease, it breaks the trend of the 20 percent drops which took place between 2009 to 2010, as well as 2010 to 2011,” Deierling said. “Unfortunately, the number of folks coming to the Marysville Community Food Bank has increased each of these years, and is up by 8 percent this year alone.” Deierling nonetheless expressed his gratitude to all those who took the time to donate food or sort it at either the Marysville Community Food Bank or the Marysville Post Office on State Avenue, the latter of which saw a number of Marysville and Lakewood

high school students turn out to take part, including members of the Marysville-Pilchuck High School Naval Junior ROTC. “There’s been a great sense of cooperation and teamwork between the volunteers and the letter carriers,” Deierling said. “The entire rest of the year, the adults who have volunteered here will still be talking about the great work these kids have done.” Rural letter carrier Jackie Engle echoed Deierling’s assessment. “It’s an amazing outreach,” Engle said, after a group of stuSEE CARRIERS, PAGE 2

Everyone has a good attitude.” Real estate agent Joseph Fisher explained that the day of cleaning gutters, painting picnic tables, tending to the park’s beauty bark and pressure-washing its playground structure cost close to $1,000 for supplies and other expenses related to the event, even with the volunteers bringing their own tools and Keller Williams receiving dona-

tions and discounts from Lowe’s, Maxwell’s, Costco and Walmart, among others. “The biggest donation is time,” said Fisher, who credited Keller Williams employees with contributing a great deal to offsetting the expenses themselves, and thanked the other companies that Keller Williams does business with for supporting the event. “We plan for this all year, but the two months leading up to it are hectic with coordination and fundraising. I got about four hours of sleep last night,” he laughed. City of Marysville Parks Maintenance Manager Mike Robinson remarked on the brisk pace of the volunteers’ work, and credited them with saving the city time and money through their efforts. “With budget cutbacks, it’s harder to keep up

It puts the finishing touches on the ‘Clean Sweep’ cleanups we organized around town last month, as part of our downtown revitalization.”

City names volunteer of the month MARYSVILLE — Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring recently honored Dan Moore as the Volunteer of the Month for March of this year, in recognition of Moore’s tireless efforts as a volunteer coach in the city of Marysville’s Parks and Recreation Department youth basketball program. Over the past 10 years, Moore has been a mainstay in the fourth- and fifthgrade girls division, and when asked, he has always been willing to step in and coach other teams that needed a coach. “His commitment and dedication to the kids he has coached has been immeasurable,” Nehring said at the April 9 Marysville City Council meeting, where Moore was honored as his family looked on. “Dan is described as one of the most caring, attentive and positive youth sports coaches around.” Moore has coached more than 100 kids during his tenure, all without a child of his own in the league.

Marysville’s basketball program, running from December to mid-March, is a league that’s meant to be fun and focuses on basic fundamentals, teamwork and good sportsmanship, delivered in a recreationleague environment. On average, the league draws about 800 players from first through eighth grade in the Marysville and Lakewood schools. “Dan is dedicated to the success of the kids on the

team bench each and every season — not just to their success on the court, but more importantly, to their success in life, both as a person and a team player,” Nehring said. At the end of each season, Moore always drops by the Athletic Coordinator’s office to share stories from the season, about team and individual player success. Athletic Coordinator Dave Hall nominated Moore for the volunteer award.

years volunteering at the Marysville Community Food Bank, pointed out that the summer months bring with them a heightened demand for food banks’ services. “Without school lunches during the break, students who are on free or reducedprice lunches need more food,” Tilly said. “Hunger doesn’t take a holiday, but we’re very blessed by how this city reacts to that need.”

Marysville residents who missed getting their yellow bags out may take their donations directly to the Marysville Community Food Bank, located at 4150 88th St. NE, directly behind St. Mary’s Catholic Church. It’s open Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 8-11:30 a.m., as well as Tuesdays from 2-6:30 p.m. To make a financial donation, you may send a check to P.O.

Arlington celebrates Airport Appreciation Day

Kevin Joyce, who pilots Snohomish County’s Search and Rescue helicopter, noted that many Airport Appreciation Day attendees were pleasantly surprised by their own capabilities and resources, with one exception. “Some kids were disappointed that we didn’t have rockets,” Joyce laughed. Arlington Mayor Barbara Tolbert agreed with Mensonides that the Airport Appreciation Day has continued to grow with each year, for which she thanked the participating pilots and Mensonides himself. “Tim is a pilot, and he’s been so enthusiastic about really reaching out to more businesses and venues,” Tolbert said. “He brings a lot of excitement to it because he’s so close to a kid himself,”

she laughed. While 12-year-old Joshua Gaynor-Cote came all the way from Seattle to check out this year’s Arlington Airport Appreciation Day, the Mosby family of Marysville just happened to be driving past when they noticed the helicopters on display and decided to get a closer look. “Joshua wants to be a pilot,” Chris Gaynor said


ARLINGTON — In spite of a midday drizzle that temporarily shut down the day’s flights, the Arlington Airport Appreciation Day on Saturday, May 5, still took an estimated 140 children up into the air. “For many of them, it was their first airplane ride in a small aircraft,” Arlington Municipal Airport Coordinator Tim Mensonides said. “I believe it was the largest attended Airport Appreciation Day to date.” While local pilots provided free airplane rides for children aged 8-17 through the EAA Young Eagles Program, 31 aircraft were on static display on the airport runway. Mensonides praised vendors for participating in greater

numbers than in previous years. Airlift Northwest flight nurse Tia Barrett and pilot “Lucky” Mertes returned for another year to explain the range of services they can provide to patients, including ventilation, defibrillation, suction, oxygen and an isolette stretcher, but they admitted that what attracted many children were Airlift Northwest’s free goodie bags and the opportunity to push buttons in their helicopter. “Kids like to fly around,” Barrett said. “It’s a fascinating experience, but while they’ve seen it on TV, it’s not often that even adults can go up in smaller aircraft themselves.” “We show them what we’re capable to doing for them, but we hope they never need us,” Mertes said.

of his son, who went up in a small aircraft before the rain came. “What we’ve both learned is the wide variety of different vocational options available in that field. What a great day it’s been.” “You can’t pass up a free ride in an aircraft,” said Roy Mosby, whose kids are “airplane fanatics” in the words of mom Tiyanna. For M.J. Williams, Roy

and Tiyanna’s 11-year-old son, the day marked his first time on such a flight. “We went up pretty high,” M.J. said. “I worried that we might crash when the plane started twitching.” M.J. nonetheless proudly brandished his certificate from the EAA Young Eagles Program, albeit while taking care to keep it protected from errant raindrops.

We at the MDA want to thank the Arlington Fire Fighters (IAFF # 3728) and all the generous citizens of Arlington for the Fill the Boot that was held on May 5th, at the intersection of Olympic and Division. The event raised about $7,000 (exact figure still pending the counting of all the coin). Our particular thanks go to Fire Fighter Bob Beam who coordinated the whole event, and Chief Stedman, who was very supportive. Because of the money raised at this event, the MDA will be able to fund great research to find a cure for neuromuscular disease, as well as sending local kids to our MDA Summer Camp.

Pertussis reaches epidemic


overnor Chris Gregoire has announced an emergency action to slow the spread of whooping cough (pertussis) in the state. Just a month ago, I declared that whooping cough had reached epidemic levels in Washington. If the pace continues, we’re headed toward the highest number of reported cases here since the early ‘40s. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Only 10-12 percent of cases are reported because many teens and adults don’t get sick enough to go in for medical treatment and testing. Whooping cough is highly contagious. It causes cold-like symptoms, spreads by coughing and sneezing, and can last for weeks. It’s a miserable illness for teens and adults but very serious for babies who often catch it from relatives and other adults. Sadly, it has taken the lives of four Washington babies in the last two years and hospitalized dozens more. Our new public service announcement features a Snohomish County mom who lost her newborn daughter to whooping cough. It’s a sobering reminder of just how serious whooping cough can be, and it encourages vaccination. Prevention is key. Whooping cough vaccine is recommended for all kids and adults. It’s widely available at clinics, pharmacies and doctor offices. Everyone age 11 and older should get a whooping cough booster called Tdap. We’re buying 27,000 doses of Tdap for adults who otherwise can’t afford it. Governor Gregoire joined me in urging healthcare professionals to get vaccinated and to vaccinate their patients. Younger kids must complete a series of five doses of DTaP vaccine by age seven for full protection. Good health manners also help prevent the spread of whooping cough, like covering your cough and staying home when you’re sick. Immunization exemptions have also played a role in the epidemic. Our state has the highest school immunization exemption rate in the nation at 6.2 percent, compared with a national average of about 2 percent. So, there are pockets of unvaccinated people vulnerable to getting and spreading diseases like measles and whooping cough. There’s a lot of misinformation about vaccines, especially online. It’s hard to tell the difference between what’s reliable and what isn’t. One way the state is helping parents get reliable information is through the new immunization exemption law. It requires parents to talk with a health care provider before exempting their child from immunizations required for school entry. The health care professional must sign a form verifying the parent or guardian received vaccine benefit and risk information. We want parents to get reliable and trusted information about vaccines from their health care provider. It’s also important for parents to know that their child, if not immunized, may be excluded from school or child care during an outbreak. To find an immunization clinic, contact your health care provider or local health agency. All recommended vaccines are offered at no cost to all kids under 19 through health care provider offices participating in the state’s Childhood Vaccine Program. Health care providers may charge an office visit fee and a fee to give the vaccine, called an administration fee. People who cannot afford the administration fee can ask the health care provider to waive the cost. Most health insurance carriers will cover the whooping cough vaccine; adults should double-check with their health plan. Making sure you’re current on your whooping cough vaccine is the best way you can help protect the vulnerable in our communities — the babies that are too young to be fully immunized. We’ve got lots of helpful information on our website at Also, find us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter via @WA_DeptofHealth. Mary C. Selecky is the Washington State Secretary of Health.

A Competitive Edge

ttention employers. Are you looking for better margins, higher productivity and employees who really care about their work? Then you need to meet Randy Lewis and hear what he has to say about what happened when his company began hiring people with disabilities. We’re talking about Walgreens, the largest drugstore chain in the United States with annual sales of $72 billion and the razor-thin margins characteristic of most retail business. What is Walgreens doing to improve those margins? Among other things, under an innovative program led by Mr. Lewis, Senior Vice President in charge of product distribution to 7,773 stores, Walgreens is intentionally hiring people with disabilities and including them fully in the work of the company. Not as part-time courtesy clerks wrangling shopping carts in the parking lot, but as critical components of one of the largest most sophisticated distribution operations in North America. How does Walgreens do it? With high productivity standards that are the same for all employees. “Everyone can do the job,” says Mr. Lewis flatly, “There is no difference. Full-time, side-by-side, same standards, same pay.” Yet over 40 percent of the employees of the distribution center that served as the pilot project for Walgreen’s inclusion campaign have a disability of some sort — autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, physical disability, deaf-blind, you name it. Mr. Lewis reports two surprising insights from what started as an economic experiment and is now spreading throughout the Walgreens organization and beyond to other corporations like


TOM EVERILL PRESIDENT & CEO OF NORTHWEST CENTER Proctor & Gamble, Glaxo Smith Kline and IBM. First, although Walgreens made significant investments in assistive technology and workflow design in their integrated distribution center, what they learned is that “It’s not about the technology, it’s about making the decision to go forward.” Because in the end, the biggest barrier to employment most people with disabilities face isn’t their particular condition or special need, but the attitude of everyone else around them. As Mr. Lewis points out, people with disabilities die a death of a thousand cuts. The system is designed for everyone else and is rigged against them — from transportation to the interview process to the fact that they may talk and look different from what people are used to. But in Mr. Lewis’ view the unkindest cut of all is that most people think people with disabilities can’t do the job. Everyone at Walgreens can do the job. Mr. Lewis tells us about Darrell, a 52-year-old man with mental retardation who had never worked before but has become number one in productivity on the receiving dock. Or Harrison, 19-years-old with autism and no employment prospects, who performs at 150 percent of standard on the receiving dock managing Walgreen’s 25,000 different products but doesn’t know how to perform simple arithmetic. Or Angie, a young woman with cerebral palsy who, after receiving straight

A’s all through college and graduate school, sent out 400 resumes, had 30 interviews, and did not receive one single job offer until she came to Walgreens where she does a fantastic job. The second even more surprising insight was about who benefits from inclusion. Of course the employees with disabilities benefit enormously. People with disabilities often face isolation with few social relationships. But on the job, Mr. Lewis reports, “Everyone becomes a chatty Cathy” and develops a new sense of belonging and contribution. The real surprise, though, was the effect on people without disabilities. In Walgreens operations that have embraced diversity and inclusion, the cooperation is better, the teamwork is better, and the sense of shared purpose is stronger. The result? Of the 14 distribution centers operated by Walgreens, the inclusion pilot has the highest productivity and the best economic performance of them all. As Mr. Lewis puts it, employing people with disabilities isn’t just as good as your current workforce, “this is better.” Walgreens is not a charity helping the poor. It is a highly competitive business that earns only 3 cents on the dollar. But Walgreens has discovered a competitive advantage by tapping into what might be called a secret reservoir of talent, ability, passion, and commitment were it not so obviously sitting right in front of us the whole time. “We know this works,” Mr. Lewis says. “This is the best thing we have ever done.” Are you interested? My direct line is 206-378-6377. Let’s talk. Tom Everill is President & CEO of Northwest Center. Contact him at

Community wants schools to save choirs BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — The state of music education in Marysville schools inspired impassioned testimony at the Marysville School District’s May 7 Board of Directors meeting. Outside of the Marysville School District offices, members of the Northern Sound Choirs expressed their protest in song just before the Board meeting. Jenni Tyner, the local group’s president, is an M-P alum who, like group treasurer Mandy Hegr, described herself as disappointed that the Marysville School District would be willing to undertake such cuts to the arts,

with Hegr echoing her sentiment that they owe it to the children of today and tomorrow to provide them with the same educational experiences that they themselves benefitted from. Inside the Service Center’s Board room, former Marysville-Pilchuck High School choral teacher Stuart Hunt repeatedly pressed Board members to respond to the reductions to school choirs since 2002, back when the school district boasted 21 such choirs. Although Hunt expressed his appreciation to MSD Superintendent Dr. Larry Nyland for working with Hunt to help salvage the district’s remaining six choirs “as best we could� in 2005, Hunt condemned the district over reports that it had issued a Reduction In Force to Marysville Getchell High School’s remaining choir teacher. Hunt sees this as the end of curriculum choir in Marysville schools. “I’m as angry as a professional is allowed to get,� said Hunt, who taught school choir for 42 years before retiring. “The SLCs first limited, then eliminat-


ed access to choir through crossovers.� In a letter emailed to the public earlier that day, MSD Assistant Superintendent Gail Miller explained that the district was not anticipating any cuts in current music staffing at the elementary or middle school levels, but specified that music staffing at the high school level would depend on the number of students who sign up for these elective areas. “Pathways offers choir one period a day during the regular schedule,� Miller wrote before the evening’s Board meeting. “Marysville Getchell offered two periods of choir within ISC and one opportunity for all on campus after school. All students this year who requested ISC, whether for choir or some other reason, were able to attend ISC.� Hunt countered Miller’s email by asking the Board whether she was aware of the MG choir director being RIFed that morning, and argued that these reductions in school support for choir have led to the reduced student participation numbers in school choirs that have been used to justify reducing support for them in turn. “With four principals and seven secretaries for the SLCs, costing at least $700,000 a year, the money is there,� Hunt said. Hunt twice asked the Board, “What do you have against students learning to sing and work together?� Board Vice President Wendy Fryberg replied the first time by reiterating the Board’s practice of not commenting on public testimony, but when she pledged that the district would address the attendees’ concerns later on, Hunt claimed that no one had been contacted following their public testimony on cutbacks to school choirs at a Board meeting one year ago. “It’s not intentional,� Fryberg said, after Hunt asked the same question a second time. “It’s not easy for anybody right now.� “Our job is to educate all our students, to the best of our ability,� Board member Cindy Erickson added. “Cuts happen.� “It’s not just money, but money is the cause,� Fryberg said. “Our funding priority is in the classrooms.�

A&T bowling brings home state title BY LAUREN SALCEDO

MARYSVILLE — Marysville Arts and Technology High School is one place where a team of young athletes are eager to get a strike. Members of the Arts and Tech bowling team known as Mr. Popper’s Penguins — in honor of the school’s mascot — just finished in first place at the 30th Annual Washington State USBC Youth Championship Tournament, which ran from April 14-15, April 21-22 and April 28-29 in Spokane. They took home the first place by a margin of 16 pins. “It was so much fun,” said Baylie Self, a sophomore at Arts and Tech who is in her second year on the bowling team. Self and three of her teammates, Elijah Reed (captain), Chance Mair and Kylor Self, traveled across Washington to attend the first of three tournament weekends. The team events took place at Valley Bowl Inc. and the singles and doubles events

took place at Lilac Lanes, both in Spokane. And although some of the players lamented about the long car ride with broken airconditioning, they certainly loved the tournament once they arrived. “It was awesome,” said Mair, a freshman who has been bowling since he was 5 years old and playing in a bumper bowling league. Mair bowled a new personal best that weekend with a score of 221. Kylor Self, a graduate of Arts and Tech, not only scored No. 1 as part of the Penguins team, but also succeeded at the tournament’s singles Division B scoring first place in that as well. Reed, the team’s captain, is a junior at Arts and Tech, and said he likes being a part of the team because it helps him grow as a leader. “I’ve mostly been doing it for leadership skills as the team captain,” said Reed. “But I also like to build up my endurance. It can take a while to get through long games. One game can take up to an hour.” For Reed, bowling has

been a family sport — his older brother helped start the Arts and Tech bowling team and his younger brother hopes one day to be a part of it. And for him, even with trying to get a summer job and fitting in activities like long boarding and backpacking, he won’t be leaving bowling behind. “Once I’m done with high school, I am probably going to get into some of the adult leagues,” he said. “I will be 18 in August, so then I can make money when I bowl,” he laughed. Bowling is not a sport supported by the school district and because of that, the team has faced some tough times. “There is really no support for them,” said Christine Mair, Chance’s mom. “We almost didn’t have a team this year,” said Self. “We had to rewrite our constitution or we wouldn’t be a club.” Despite the fact that the sport is not a school-supported activity, the athletes still show consistent dedication to the game. “I’m in a rec league every Saturday,” said Chance Mair,

That practice paid off during state when Reed scored 34-70 over his average, Kylor Self scored 29-75 over his average and Baylie

Self scored 20 over her average. Next year’s state tournament is set to take place in Mount Vernon, and the team already has goals in mind. “I want to break 200,” said Self, whose personal best is

just eight pins shy of that number. Mair wants to beat the personal score he set at this year’s tournament and Reed aims for a perfect score. “I want to bowl a 300 before I’m done with high school,” said Reed.

Panthers edge Tommies in district playoff BY LAUREN SALCEDO

M-P’s pitcher Alex Gray pitches to a Snohomish batter during the May 8 4A District 1 play-off game.

MARYSVILLE – The Marysville-Pilchuck High School varsity baseball team is out of the running for state after a nail-biting home game against the Snohomish High School Panthers on May 8 ending in a 4-3 loss for the Tomahawks. There was never much of a lead for either team during the game, and the outcome was decided in the last inning. M-P senior first-baseman John Naff started out the game strong with a two-run home run in the first inning bringing the Tommies in to lead the game. The Panthers scored three runs and kept a one-run lead on the Tomahawks through the top of the sixth inning. But it wasn’t until the bottom of the sixth that the Tommies rallied a comeback to tie it up before the last inning. The score was 3-3

going in to the seventh, but a Snohomish batter hit an RBI single that set them just above M-P and they weren’t able to make another run. The loss means that the Marysville-Pilchuck season is over and no chance of going to state. “It was a tough loss, both teams played hard,” said Greg Erickson, athletic director for the Marysville School District. “Both teams had sophomore pitchers and it was a close game.” The Tommies were second in their division and third in the league behind Lake Stevens and EdmondsWoodway high schools. Those schools are now first and second in the district championship tournament with Jackson battling for third. The top three schools in the championships will head to Pasco to fight for the state title on May 25-26. E-W lost to Lake Stevens, league champions, in a 5-4 final game on May 10.

The first round of the 4A District 1 baseball tournament started out great for the Tomahawks during an away game against Cascade High School on May 5. They dealt the Bruins a 3-1 defeat when pitcher Jake Johnson struck out five and gave up only two hits and one run. That victory led them into the District 1 round two playoffs against the Warriors on May 7, where they had a brief lead-up on E-W but the Warriors made a comeback and finished with the 8-6 victory. That loss led the Tommies to the loser-out game against Snohomish, which lost them their chance at the district championships and state title. “It’s really disappointing, but in this tournament it comes down to one game,” said Erickson. “It’s a tough way to end the season, but there were two good coaches and great kids. It was a classic high school event.”

Marysville fishing derby draws crowd despite high water

MARYSVILLE — High water levels at the pond at Jennings Park meant that families looking to take part in the Everett Steelhead and Salmon Club’s annual fishing derby on Saturday, May 5, had to perch precariously on the steep slopes of only one side of the pond, since the other side was flooded out. That didn’t stop the threehour event from attracting an average of 140 attendees per hour, for an estimated total of more than 500, according to Buz Bauman of the Everett Steelhead and Salmon Club. “We spent about $1,950 on 2,500 fish, including some nine-pounders,” said Jim Brauch of the Everett Steelhead and Salmon Club. “We had plenty of tangled

lines as kids cast them out,” Bauman laughed, as event coordinator Jack Blair noted that the Everett Steelhead and Salmon Club lent out 88 rods during those three hours. The fishing derby proved fruitful for community groups such as the Marysville Community Food Bank, which collected at least 250 pounds of food and $45 in cash according to city of Marysville Athletic Coordinator Dave Hall, and the Marysville Kiwanis Club, which served up about 250 pancake breakfasts ranging from $3 to $5 each according to Marysville Kiwanis Treasurer Mike Ferri. For the youngsters and adults who stood on the banks of the pond, the experience itself was rewarding enough, even if they weren’t too keen on eating their catches.

“I don’t like fish,” said 6-year-old Josiah Moore of Marysville, who nonetheless returned to Jennings Park for a second year in the fishing derby. “He’s wiggling in my hands,” Josiah giggled, as his catch tried to squirm away. While 8-year-old Coen Richardson loves fish dinners, 11-year-old fellow

Marysville resident Oliver Norman released all three of the fish he caught. “It’s just a good hobby,” Norman said. “It’s something to do when I’m not playing sports.” “This is a good place for kids to practice fishing,” said Sarah Richardson, Coen’s mom. “It’s not dangerous, although this is the first year

that it’s been this muddy,” she laughed. Dave Crockett and his 5-year-old daughter Abby made the trek from Arlington for a second year to take part in the fishing derby, which made a satisfying meal for her but not so much for the rest of the family. “The rest of us got one little taste of her fish last

year,” laughed Andrea Blakey, Abby’s grandma. “Otherwise, she ate the whole thing.” The Twin Lakes County Park in Smokey Point will serve as the site for the Everett Steelhead and Salmon Club’s next kids’ fishing event on Saturday, May 19, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. for ages 5-14.

Amazing Technology Relieves Serious Back Pain

Who Else Wants to Get Rid of Sciatica, Bulging Discs, And Leg Pain Once And For All? (ONLY $35 TO ANYONE WHO IS SUFFERING WITH THESE CONDITIONS)


aving back and leg pain can feel like a crippling condition. You might not be able to play golf, work, or even sit in the car for a 30-minute drive. It’s almost impossible for anyone around you to understand how you feel. You can’t remember the last time you even had a restful night’s sleep. If you’ve suffered from any of these annoying conditions, you may have “Sciatica”. Sciatica is a compression of the sciatic nerve, usually by an L4 or L5 disc herniations. As you know, sciatica can be a very painful problem, even crippling at times. Nothing’s worse than feeling great mentally, but physically feeling held back from life because your back or sciatica hurts and the pain just won’t go away! Fortunately, if you are suffering from any of these problems, they may be relieved or eliminated by nonsurgical spinal decompression.

Dr. Scott Peseau, D.C.

P.S. The only real question to ask yourself is this…

What Will Your Pain Feel Like 1 Month From Today?

“What’s The Chance This Will Work For Me?” A medical study found patients went from moderately painful to almost no pain with decompression treatments. Those that took pain pills improved less than 5%. ~ Am Society of Anesthesiologist, 2006 Chicago, IL

Do you have any of the following symptoms... • Sharp pains in the back of the leg • Lower Back Pain • Herniated/bulging discs • Numbness in your arms or legs • Shooting hip or thigh pain • Muscle spasm, sprains & strains

If so you may have a condition called peripheral neuropathy. Another study presented at the American Academy of Pain Management in 2007 showed… “Patients reported a mean 88.9% improvement in back pain and better function…No patient required any invasive therapies (e.g. epidural injections, surgery).” These are just two studies out of a dozen done in the last few years, all showing promising results. Here’s the point of all these studies… spinal decompression has a high success rate with helping disc herniations, sciatica, and back pain. This means in just a matter of weeks you could be back on the golf course, enjoying your love life, or traveling again.

The Single Most Important Solution To Your Sciatica and Back Pain It’s time for you to find out if spinal decompression will be your sciatic pain solution. $35 will get you all the services I normally charge new patients $230 for! Due to Federal law some exclusions may apply. 622698_ArlingtonSpineCenter0516.indd 1

Spinal decompression just may be the answer that you’ve been looking for. Ask yourself … after taking all these pain medications and playing the ‘wait and see game’, maybe for years…are you any better off? Call 360-474-9900 and tell the receptionist you’d like to come in for the Special Decompression Evaluation. We can get started with your consultation, exam and x-rays as soon as there’s an opening in the schedule. Our office is called Arlington Spine Center and we are located at 215 E. 3rd. St. I look forward to helping you get rid of your pain so you can start living a healthier, more joyful life. Sincerely,

It’s Not Just About The Pain! It’s About How It Affects Your Lifestyle. Here’s Dr. Scott Peseau enjoying time with his son Will

What does this offer include? Everything. Here’s what you’ll get… • 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). • A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray findings so we can start mapping out your plan to being pain free. ($75 value). • You’ll get to see everything first hand and find out if this amazing treatment will be your pain solution, like it has been for so many other patients. I’ll answer all your most probing question about our pain free back evaluation and what it can do for you. The appointment will not take long at all and you won’t be sitting in a waiting room all day either.

And the best part about it is... No Dangerous Drugs, No Invasive Procedures, And No Painful Exercises Spinal decompression treatments are very gentle. In fact, I even catch a few patients sleeping during sessions every once and awhile. You’ll simply lie on your stomach or back, whichever is comfortable, and then a specialized belt is gently put around your waist. We’ll set the machine to focus on your problem area – then the advanced decompression computer system will do the rest.

“But I feel fine – as long as I take my pain pills.” There’s a time to use pain medications, BUT not before seeking a natural way to correct the CAUSE of the problem! Due to federal law some exclusions may apply.

One of the biggest myths about pain is that it goes away all by itself, without any treatment. A May 1998 study in the British Medical Journal proved this myth false, showing that 75% of back pain sufferers who do nothing about it will have either pain or disability 12 months later. Let’s face it, if the pain hasn’t gone away by now, it’s not likely to disappear on its own.

Here’s What Our Patients Say... “I feared having to get surgery on my low back. Now, after finishing Dr. Peseau’s Decompression Program, I am 90% recovered! They explained my problems very clearly so I understood what was wrong with my back. They truly seem to care how I’m feeling. They are very thoughtful about your well-being. This clinic has the best bedside manner I have ever experienced and I am getting better! I am very gratefull for their help.” NEUROPATHY-SCIATICA DECOMPRESSION PATIENT ~ Donald Cool “I was miserable standing for any length of time or sitting. I could not sleep and had constant leg pain and weakness in the leg and foot. Actually, I was thinking I was crazy! Now after starting Dr. Peseau’s Decompression Program, I am sleeping at night, can go shopping without excruciating pain, my posture is much better and I mentally feel much better. My results are UNBELIEVABLE! After 1 ½ years of ping pong between specialists only to be told they could do nothing for me, now I have renewed hope and have seen benefits after only 10 visits of decompression. I wish I would have done this sooner! I learned more about my back pain and spine in two visits with Dr. Peseau than in a year with other medical professionals. I feel they truly listen and care.” NEUROPATHY-SCIATICA WITH LEG WEAKNESS DECOMPRESSION PATIENT ~ Anita Stuestall

Life’s too short to live in pain like this. Call today and soon I’ll be giving you the green light to have fun again.

Call Today To Schedule Your $35 Spinal Decompression Evaluation ($230 Value). AVAILABLE TO THE FIRST 25 CALLERS
