ARLINGTON — While overcast skies put a slight damper on this year’s attendance, the 13th annual Show ‘N’ Shine car show on Saturday, June 9, still drew hundreds of automobiles and onlookers to Olympic Avenue to help support Arlington’s local businesses and community service organizations. This year marked Marilyn Bullock’s sixth and final time chairing the event, and she estimated that this year’s total of about 220 antique, hot rod and muscle cars was down from the average of just under 300 that Show ‘N’ Shine has attracted in previous years. As such, the event’s fundraising total for this year was also slightly down from previous years,
but it was still more than $3,000. “That helps support our downtown merchants, as well as the Arlington Community Food Bank and cancer research,” Bullock said. “Our 50/50 raffle goes toward Arlington Kids Kloset. We also help fund events like Hometown Holidays and other activities that promote the downtown but don’t generate revenue to sustain themselves.” As always, Show ‘N’ Shine also drew entrants from fairly far afield, not only within the state, but also from other states and even other countries.

Village Community Services client Cory Anderson has found his outlet for self-expression through Voices of the Village.
SMOKEY POINT — The Village Community Services’ annual Taste of Decadence returned to the Smokey Point Community Church on Friday, June 8. VCS Development Director Michelle Dietz estimated that 115 diners attended the evening’s dinner, silent auction and dessert auction, which is just slightly down from the average of 120-150 attendees that she’s seen at previous years’ Tastes of Decadence. “I’m the only paid staff member,” Dietz said. “The silent auction alone is put together by a team of 20 volunteers. We do cost-cutting measures like recycling decorations, so that only
cost us $15 this year.” While the fundraising totals for this year’s Taste of Decadence were still being added up as of press time, VCS Board President Art Hutton explained to attendees the services that their donations will help to sustain. “VCS supports adults with disabilities and other life challenges in achieving their personal potential at home, at work and in the community,” said Hutton, who broke VCS’ services down into the components of residential, vocational and musical. “We hope we can be there for them right throughout their lives.” While the residential component emphasizes quality-of-life, health and safety, and self-sufficiency for adults SEE TASTE, PAGE 2

SHINE FROM PAGE 1 Master Chief Charles “Chuck” Collett. Although Charles passed on due to liver cancer two years ago, Timothy brought his father’s ashes to this year’s Show ‘N’ Shine, setting the urn atop the engine of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro that Timothy rebuilt in honor of his Vietnam veteran father. “He owned 17 Camaros,” Timothy Collett said of his father. “He used to race stock cars in Hawaii. They called him ‘Da Wild Man’ and liked him even though he was a Haole. Me and my boys tore this car apart to turn it into a memorial to my dad, who served 30 years in the Navy. He was my hero.” Timothy laughed as he recalled how Charles had heard about the 2010 concept Camaro and wanted to buy it for himself, but had joked that “the wife says I’ve got to get better first,” when both Charles and Timothy knew he wouldn’t survive. Gary Sutherland has been an Arlington resident for 32 years, but his accent still gives away his origins in Australia, as do the chrome

kangaroos on the 1945 war bus that he drove to the Show ‘N’ Shine. While Sutherland is camera-shy after a career of building cars that’s seen him rack up famous clients like Randy Johnson and the Beach Boys, he nonetheless enjoys showing off his work, including the military transport bus that he converted into a six-speed motorhome. Dan Graham is happy to talk about his 1957 Ford F-1 pickup truck, but to get a lot of the standard questions out of the way, a local painter friend suggested printing its stats on a removable fender. “I paid $1,000 to haul it away eight and a half years ago,” Graham said. “By the time it had been mediablasted, it looked like Swiss cheese. I was contemplating scrapping it.” Instead, Graham embarked on what would become a labor of love, to the estimated tune of $200,000, which not only replaced two-thirds of the cab with new metal, but also saw the car customized with a chop-top, suicide doors, and a tilting back truck bed and front fiberglass fender, the latter designed by a
boat-builder not to let water into the engine compartment. “I grew up with muscle cars in Southern California,” Graham said. “I’ve been into hot rods all my life. I came up here 27 years ago, but now that I’ve raised my own family, I’m getting back into it.” While other car owners were understandably hesitant to let spectators touch their vehicles, Arlington’s Terry Iverson was letting kids climb into the seats of his 1923 Ford T-Bucket, even though its gold gauges alone cost $600 and its two fat rear tires from Rosten Automotive ran him roughly $1,000. “I’m going to have to replace this upholstery soon, and that’ll cost me another $2,500,” Iverson said as a group of children climbed out of the car after their families had taken photos. “It’s not about the money, though. When you let kids touch a toy like this, they see that there’s fun things worth working toward, and it helps keep them away from bad influences like drugs. The lesson for those kids is, if you work hard, you can have fun stuff too.”
TASTE FROM PAGE 1 with disabilities, the vocational side of VCS seeks to foster innovative ideas and support systems that will lead to long-term employment success for those adults. “We help them achieve independence through training and mentorship programs on the job,” Hutton said. “These are productive, meaningful jobs that they’re doing, and we’re looking to expand those as we continue to receive an influx of adults with autism and veterans coming back with disabilities.” According to Hutton, the Voices of the Village band and VCS’ Friday music programs encourage adults with disabilities to express themselves artistically and connect with their community through public performances. The Voices of the Village were joined this year by guest-speaker Swil Kanim, a Native American who’s appeared in Sherman Alexie movies and founded HonorWorks, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire self-expression for the honor of all. “Swil Kanim is a wonderfully inspiring speaker and

Although his heritage includes more than the Lummi Nation, of which he’s a member, Kanim stressed
the important of not being exclusively defined by labels, such as “disabled.” “Rather than saying, ‘I’m part-this and part-that,’ I’m everyone that I am,” Kanim said. “I’m not partanything. We are all the sum of all our stories, all or mistakes and all our victories.” Village Community Services is located in Suite 200 at 3210 Smokey Point Dr. in Arlington.

Lakewood’s Class of 2012 looks to future
LAKEWOOD — As Lakewood High School graduates prepare to enter the “real world,” hundreds of LHS students spent their June 11 commencement ceremony celebrating the past and looking toward the future. The Lakewood High School gym was filled with graduating seniors, staff, friends and family who came out to support those who were heading out to face world ahead. Valedictorian Aaron Nech spoke to his fellow classmates. “High school is much more than a public learning institution. It’s a memory,” he said. “I know that each one of you will move on to do great things. I see a room full of fantastically talented adults that will find their own unique place in this world whether it be as an engineer, a doctor, a teacher or simply that smiling person you can always count on.” Nech went on to discuss how his experiences at Lakewood helped shape him into the person he is today. “I’ve watched heartbreak, triumph and fortitude. I’ve experienced love, commitment and selflessness. I love you guys and wouldn’t trade these memories for anything,” he said. Nech ended his speech with some wise words for the future. “Keep fighting through life and never, ever give up.” Fellow valedictorian Kiley Brown said she was inspired by the stories of the individuals with whom he was graduating. “These individuals that sit in front of you today have faced many obstacles, such as senior projects, cougar PATH
notebooks, coursework and senior presentations, all while trying to fight off senioritis. But we all made it here, for graduation,” she said. But graduation is not the end of the road for Lakewood seniors. “The possibilities are endless when we believe in ourselves and our capabili-
ties,” said Brown. “Although we are now done with high school and it might sound cliché, but it is not the end, but a new beginning. There is so much in store for the Class of 2012 and life will allow us to go further than we ever thought possible.” Student speaker Jacob Micheletti urged classmates
to embrace the future and themselves. “I’ll leave you with this — never be afraid to follow your dreams,” he said. “Everything you do, do it with love in your heart. And don’t be afraid to feel something for what it’s worth, because not much in this life is guaranteed. I wish the best of luck to every one of you.” Jeff Sowards, Lakewood history teacher and coach
for track and cross country also addressed the crowd. To graduates, he challenged them to go forward with a set of morals in mind. “I challenge you to be patient, kind, respectful, committed, accepting, selfless, honest and humble,” said Sowards. “In short, do these things with love in your heart and your memories will be rich, full and numerous.” LHS senior Patricia Rivera

said she felt as though her time at Lakewood wasn’t quite done. “I’m a little excited, but I feel like school’s not over,” said Rivera. Jacob Bruley said he was glad to be finished with high school. “I’m pretty excited,” said Bruley, who plans to become a computer technician after attending Western Washington University. “I feel like I’m ready to move on.”

City looks to honor Pride of Marysville
hile community volunteers, merchants and city of Marysville employees pulled together last April to give downtown Marysville a successful JON NEHRING once-over spring cleaning to polMARYSVILLE ish its image during Clean Sweep MAYOR Week, there were plenty of citizens and business owners throughout the community putting hard labor into their own yards, homes and store fronts to usher in spring. A drive around Marysville streets and neighborhoods on a sunny day presents abundant examples of spruced-up homes and businesses tended by people who care about their properties, and take pride in their neighborhood and community. If you are one of those residents or business owners, or you know someone who is, we want to hear from you. The city earlier this year kicked off the new Pride of Marysville neighborhood improvement awards as a way to recognize residents and business people who take pride in cleanliness, appeal and livability where they live or work. If you haven’t yet nominated a home, business or neighborhood, you still have until the deadline of July 2. Nominating someone couldn’t be easier; it only takes three minutes to complete our brief online form at http://marysvillewa.gov. All that is needed is the nominee’s address, type of property (residential or commercial), selected award category, a short sentence or two on why the property deserves to be honored, and contact information in the event that we need to reach you. We don’t even mind if you nominate yourself — or the other handy person or green thumb under your roof! If you don’t have access to the web, nomination brochures are also available at city offices. Complete the form in the brochure and return to Marysville City Hall, Attn: Doug Buell, Pride of Marysville Awards, 1049 State Ave., Marysville, WA 98270. A committee will review the different selections and choose the honorees. Winners will be notified in advance, then publicly honored at the July 16 City Council meeting, where they will be presented with engraved yard markers for placement in landscaping, yards or store frontage as a way to share their accolades with others for a much-appreciated job well done. There are four award categories to choose from, but choose only one: ■ Best Home/Pride of the Neighborhood — Homes consistently well-kept with well-manicured lawns and colorful landscapes, or enhanced with new paint, landscaping or other significant aesthetic improvements. ■ Best Block/Neighborhood — Based on general/neighborhood entrance/gateway appeal and improvements made. ■ Best Business — Business sites with most curb appeal that have

Shining despite difficult times
artnerships with our community — now more than ever — help us through tough
times. Marysville Rotary and Soroptimists recently provided more than $60,000 in scholarships for Marysville seniors. The Tulalip Tribes’ $1.26 million grant reduced class size, provided new middle school science materials and much more. Opportunity Expo 2012 brought dozens of partners together to expose 1,000 students to hundreds of college and career options. We celebrate success together with so many great partners including United Way, Marysville and Tulalip Boys & Girls Clubs, city of Marysville (city, police, library), Rotary, Soroptimists and Kiwanis, Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce, YMCA, PTSAs, GAC,
GUEST OPINION DR. LARRY NYLAND and many, many more community businesses and parents that support our students and schools. The National Education Association has provided multiple grants, quality professional development and featured Marysville’s work on the national stage many times. Quil Ceda and Tulalip have been recognized nationally for the way their staff works together to use data to improve student learning.
Marshall, Marysville Cooperative Education Program, and Mountain View outperformed their peers statewide in reading, math and science. Many other schools outperformed in specific areas. Totem was recognized for their success in 8th grade Algebra. Marysville Getchell took another national grand prize for instructional design. Tenth Street Middle School and A&T High School were named two of the state’s “Innovative Schools.” More teachers received their National Board Certifications including Sherri Ballew, Carol Beyer, Che-Mai Gray, Joseph Klomparens, Stephen Parker, Debbie Vincelette and Theresa Blake. Susan Melton earned a Fulbright Scholarship, Jim Strickland was named PTSA SEE SHINING, PAGE 5
Engaging students for success A
s a district, we believe that every student can be successful so we work to provide as many different opportunities as possible to engage students and foster success. Weston High School, founded in 1986 by Linda Weston, is one of those opportunities. At that time, Linda Weston was an Assistant Principal/Vocational Director at Arlington High School. She was concerned that students who dropped out of school had no other options within the district; they needed a place to go. With this vision in mind, Linda created the Arlington Alternative School where she remained principal until 1992. Upon retirement in 1994, the student body voted to change the name of the school
AMIE VERELLENGRUBBS to Weston High School in Linda’s honor. Since that time, Weston High School has evolved, as have graduation requirements and the needs of high school students in Arlington and the surrounding community. Currently, 172 students are enrolled for some portion of their educational program. Weston offers a traditional six-period day experience, houses the Online Academy
and offers a combination of the two programs to provide flexibility and engage students. Within the traditional sixperiod day, Weston includes a daily half hour intervention support period called Panther Period, and the district Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) Robotics program. Panther Period provides half an hour of intervention support for all students. Students are assigned a specific intervention based on current performance data for three-week increments. At the end of each threeweek cycle student placement is re-evaluated and placement changes are made as needed. The STEM Robotics program SEE SUCCESS, PAGE 5

Outstanding Advocate, Anne Carlson, was named School Security Officer of the Year, Randy Davis earned state recognition (M-P track and field), Doug Pellerin (eighth-grade football) and Marlin Fryberg, (Heritage basketball) were honored at the state and local levels by their coaching associations, Heritage High School Principal Shelly Lacy was honored by Women of Color, and Anthony Craig completed his Ph.D. In addition, students were invited to meet with President Obama (Dallas Duplessis, Tisen Fryberg, Katia Brown and Laura Enick), earned a National Merit Scholar as a junior (Stephani Hren-Graham), led their teams to earn high marks in the Knowledge Bowl, earned a perfect score on the national Latin exam, and excelled in sports, music, and drama competitions as well as robotics,
SUCCESS FROM PAGE 4 has had many positive benefits. Students come from the other high schools in the district to participate in a year long Robotics class that meets the requirements for a third year math credit, Video Game Programming and/or 3D Animation. These three classes lay a foundation for students who wish to continue their study through the Sno-Isle Skill Center DigiPen program. However, the engaging nature of these classes make them extremely enticing to students who do not wish to continue in this specific field. Weston is looking forward to expanding our STEM offerings next year with the addition of a Guitar Manufacturing course where students will apply significant science and math to actually build an electric guitar by the end of the school year. Another new offering will be Forensic Science, where students will

writing, NJROTC, and business. Miranda Cooper (Bio Med) and Theresa Ambat (Totem) were recognized at the state-level for PTSA Reflections, Kais Ben Mariem (ACE) received the presidential award for his community volunteer work and Haley Spooner and Stephanie Neel (MMVHS) will represent Marysville in national competition in Florida and Rafael Achacoso represented M-P at the DECA state competition. Our Board of Directors was recognized as a Board of Distinction for their student achievement goals. Thanks to a dedicated teaching force and caring support staff, the district continued to make gains in three critical “steps to success” — thirdgrade reading, eighth-grade Algebra and a 20 percent increase in graduation rates. District and school “report cards” (on the web) highlight other successes. Marysville has now completed all 2006 bond construction projects
— on-time and under budget including Grove Elementary, Marysville Getchell High School, land for future growth, more than promised in technology, and completion of all major repairs. Thanks to good stewardship, a partnership with Lakewood Schools, and $8 million in state funding, we will meet one more critical need with a transportation co-op facility that will reduce operating costs. The district has also qualified for more than $1 million in energy grants and rebates over the last four years.
participate in a year-long simulation-centered around forensic investigation of a crime scene. Both these options provide an engaging, hands-on experience for students to learn and apply science, technology, engineering and math. For students who cannot attend the regular daytime program classes, the Online Academy is an alternative learning experience program where students develop an individualized learning plan for their progress via online curriculum. Students do most of their work independently and meet with an instructor a minimum of once per week, usually after regular school hours. What makes the Online Academy a step above other online programs is the fact that we have a district instructor on site in the evenings four days per week to meet with students, provide additional assistance, and work with parents as needed. Weston’s mission doesn’t stop at the end of the school year. Summer School pro-
grams are also offered at Weston High School. This year students have three different format options to continue learning and earning credit through the summer. Students can retrieve credit in classes they had previously failed by attend a two-hour class each day between July 9 through Aug. 3. In this option, students are required to attend for the full two hours, every day and receive individualized help of a teacher during this time. The cost is $125 for each .5 class retrieved. Another model through the Online Academy allows students to earn credit in any online course by working independently throughout July and August and meeting with a teacher once a week. This is a great option for students who have travel plans, who have challenges with daily transportation or who want to take extra classes to free up their schedule for next fall. Finally, students who have an IEP can participate in an independent sum-
mer school program, for IEP Math, IEP English, as well as an accommodated curriculum for World Geography, Economics, Government, U.S. History and World History. The cost for this program is $150 per class, but costs for summer school classes for all students in the Arlington School District who qualify for free or reduced lunches, and to 11th and 12th graders who are behind in meeting their graduation requirements. If you are interested in discussing any of these options for your student, please contact Amie Verellen-Grubbs at 360618-6340. Weston High School has an incredible staff dedicated to the success of every student and we are so honored to serve the students and families in this community.
these efforts reflect well on the community, enhance Marysville’s appearance, and could inspire others to do the same. The way that we improve and maintain our homes, landscaping, businesses, buildings, and gardens communicates an image of Marysville, one that we hope will promote more community and neighborhood pride.
fast approaching, remember that if legal “safe and sane” fireworks are a part of your family and friends’ celebrations, Marysville Police and Fire District officials caution you to obey local laws and take safety precautions to prevent injury to yourself and others. Discharging of legal fireworks is permitted from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4 only. Use of illegal fireworks, or any fireworks outside the proscribed day and times, carries stiff fines and penalties.
See the city website for more details. Safety of individuals and property is our utmost concern. Finally, keeping in the spirit of our initiatives such as Clean Sweep Week and the Pride of Marysville Awards to create and maintain a cleaner community and neighborhoods, we ask fireworks users to remember that after you light it up, clean it up.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Thanks to the Sheriff’s Office Our students, parents and staff are indebted to the Snohomish County Sheriff ’s Office for the rapid response and aid provided when addressing a potentially dangerous situation in our school district recently. On behalf of Lakewood School District Staff and Board of Directors, I wanted to express my sincere gratitude in particular to Capt. Ty Trenary, Lt. Kathi Lang, Sgt. Robert Martin, and Director of Communications Shari Ireton. Thanks to all the officers as well who assisted in the recent lockdown incident having occurred throughout our district on Monday, June 4. Their approach, support and communication provided throughout the incident were exemplary. We live in tenuous times and are not insulated from potentially disastrous circumstances in our area. The expeditious emergency response performed by Sheriff Lovick’s officers and workforce further instills in us a great deal of confidence and gratitude here in Lakewood School District. Dennis Haddock, Ed.D. Superintendent

MARYSVILLE — The Adult Trike Races have been cancelled for a second year a row, but the rest of the Marysville Strawberry Festival’s events are still set to take place as planned. Jodi Hiatt confirmed that the Adult Trike Races that had been scheduled for Friday, June 15, will not be able to go ahead due to a lack of participating teams. “It is a really fun spectator event and I know the teams that have participated in the past had fun,” said Hiatt, who still hopes to revive the event for future Strawberry Festivals. In the meantime, Funtastic Shows’ “world’s finest carnival” will come back to the Marysville Middle School play field from June 14-17. The carnival hours will run from 4-10 p.m. on Thursday, June 14, and Friday, June 15, as well as until 11 p.m. on Saturday, June 16, and until 5 p.m. on Sunday, June 17. Opening times for June 16 and 17 will depend on the weather. This year’s Market in Asbery Field will also return

them through the weekends during the school year. “The children come to school on Mondays with their thoughts on school and not their stomachs,” said Dell Deierling, director of the Marysville Community Food Bank. “We have been providing this service to 19 kids since the start of May and the results are remarkable. Given the success of this program, we are gearing up for the 2012-13 school year in hopes of serving even more kids. Raffle tickets will be on sale at the food bank’s booth at the Market. Purchase tickets for $1 each for your chance to win a $50 spa gift certificate, a $20 gift certificate for Don’s Restaurant, a Starbucks gift card and more. All proceeds will go toward the purchase of food to support the “Food For Thought” program. The Marysville Strawberry Festival Talent Show will take to the stage of the MarysvillePilchuck High School auditorium again at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 14. The M-PHS auditorium is located at 5611 108th St. NE in Marysville, and doors open at 5:30 p.m. before the Talent Show starts. Tickets are being pre-sold for $4 and will go for $5 at the door, and children under 7 years old will be admitted for free. Call Marcy Giesler at 360-6536584 for more information. This year’s Marysville Strawberry Festival Rose Planting ceremony continues on in the venue it gained in 2010. The annual ceremony will take place at 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 16, at Totem Middle School, located at 1605 Seventh St. in Marysville. During the ceremony, which is slated to take about

This free event is open to all ages, and light refreshments will be offered afterward. With its registration and setup time starting at 4 p.m. — followed by judging which commences at 5 p.m., the parade participants lining up around 5:45 p.m. and the parade proper kicking off at 6 p.m. — the Kiddies Parade on Saturday, July 16, offers a host of surprises each year, as entrants ranging from individuals to groups of 20 or more sign up for one of five categories. Bobbi Easley, who began coordinating the Kiddies Parade just last year, explained that the categories have remained the same each year, from the costume categories for both individuals and groups, to the animals category for pets
ranging from dogs to horses that their owners (or riders) have dressed up. The floats category’s restriction is that its entries can’t have motors, while the wheels category can include everything from bicycles to wagons. Each of the five categories of entrants will have its own staging area at the start of the Kiddies Parade route, at Totem Middle School on Seventh Street. The parade will then head south on State Avenue until it reaches Fifth Street, at which point awards will be given to the participants in Comeford Park. The grand prize winners of the Kiddies Parade will get to appear in the Grand Parade later that same day. Entry forms for the Kiddies Parade can be found online at http://maryfest.org. The Grand Parade officially starts at 7:45 p.m. on 76th Street, to ensure that entrants are rolling southbound on State Avenue in front of the TV cameras by 8 p.m. With any luck, the parade wraps up on Third Street and Alder Avenue by 10 p.m., just in time for the half-hour fireworks show. Carol Kapua reported that this year’s high school march-
ing bands are set to include both Marysville-Pilchuck and Marysville Getchell, the latter making their Strawberry Festival Grand Parade debut. Likewise, while the Dolls have put in Grand Parade appearances in previous years, this year also marks the first combined performance by the Dolls & Gentlemen Drill Team and Drill Line. Although American Legion Post 178 and the Arlington Drag Strip Reunion are familiar fixtures in the area, they’ve never had entries in the Grand Parade before, but like “Survivor” contestant Michael Jefferson of Marysville, they’ll be cruising down State Avenue as part of the event this year. Call 360-659-7664 for more information. The Boys and Girls Club’s Marysville Unit is hosting its own open house to coincide with the Strawberry Festival on Friday, June 15, from 6-8 p.m. at 1010 Beach Ave. The open house is free and will include a barbecue, games and other activities. The event will also includes sign-up opportunities for the club’s summer camps. For more information contact Christina Trader at 360659-2576.

Whooping cough Sec. of State Reed speaks to Marysville Rotary epidemic leads to more vaccinations BY KIRK BOXLEITNER firstname.lastname@example.org
The ongoing whooping cough epidemic in Washington is driving higher demand for vaccine among adults, as people protect themselves and their families from pertussis. More adults are getting vaccinated, showing that they’re getting the word that prevention measures like vaccination, and staying home when they’re sick, help protect those most atrisk. “Adults in Washington are doing their part by getting the whooping cough booster, called Tdap,” said state Secretary of Health Mary Selecky. “The increase in adult vaccination is vital to protecting babies, who are the most vulnerable because they’re too young to be fully vaccinated. Thank you to everyone who’s gotten vaccinated, and I want others to follow their example.” Between March 25 and May 26 of this year, the state immunization registry recorded 82,453 doses of Tdap for adults age 19 and older. That’s well more than double the 34,171 doses recorded in the same time period last year, showing the growing demand for Tdap in the face of the epidemic. Data from health plans also show an increase. Group Health gave almost 60 percent more Tdap to adults in April of this year compared to April of 2011. Premera Blue Cross is seeing a similar trend, with the number of Tdap vaccinations in April of this year up by more than 70 percent for its members compared to an average month. These increases are good news, especially with the total reported pertussis cases for the year to date now at 2,092, the highest since the 1940s.
“We’re asking everyone to doublecheck with their health care provider to make sure they’re up-to-date on vaccinations.”
Mary Selecky Washington Secretary of Health “We’re asking everyone to double-check with their health care providers to make sure they’re upto-date on vaccinations,” Selecky said. “Our reported case count has climbed above 2,000 already, with half of the year to go. It’s vital that teens and adults get the Tdap booster.” The state Department of Health bought more than 27,000 doses of Tdap vaccine for uninsured and underinsured adults, to remove a cost barrier. Making these extra doses easily available means more people can get vaccinated. Getting vaccinated protects the person getting the shot and helps protect people at highest risk for complications, like babies and pregnant women. The Tdap vaccine is for people 11 years and older, and can be found by contacting your health care provider, local health agency or pharmacy. Only one shot is needed. Younger children need five doses of DTaP by the time they’re 7 for best protection. It takes about two weeks from the time of vaccination to be protected.

MARYSVILLE — Washington Secretary of State Sam Reed laughed as he described his visit to the Rotary Club of Marysville on Wednesday, June 6, as part of his “farewell tour,” but even though this marks the last of his 45 years of public service, Reed offered a serious message of concern for the future. Reed urged the Rotarians and their guests at the noon luncheon to focus their efforts on fostering civility, moderation and bipartisanship, not only within their local community, but also among those whom they support for elected office, on up to the state and national levels. “Between talk radio, cable and blogs, the noisiest get the most attention,” Reed said. “The debt crisis just last year was one of the worst examples, but even when we discuss what’s going on in the National Association of Secretaries of State, everyone agrees that nothing’s happening right now. It’s all gridlocked.” Reed identified the members of community service organizations such as Rotary and Kiwanis, the latter of which he belongs to, as the leaders within their communities, and anticipated that candidates for office would seek out local Rotarians’ endorsements. “Don’t support people who operate in a polemic way,” said Reed, a Republican who has nonetheless advised candidates from his own party not to adopt overly strident conservative stances. “When one party has a majority
in both houses of the legislature, what happens all too often is that they’ll just ram through policies, which the other party will rush to undo as soon as they come into power. We saw that with healthcare reform.” Looking ahead to November, Reed expressed optimism over both the degree of voter turnout that he expects and the ways in which the political campaigns and the election process alike will be conducted. By contrast to the recent Wisconsin recall election, Reed doesn’t believe the Washington governor’s race will engender anywhere near the same amount of acrimony, and he sees Washington’s vote-by-mail system yielding greater turnout and offering better security from voter fraud than the traditional polling places. “We’ve got open seats for governor, attorney general, auditor, secretary of state, the Senate and the House of Representatives, and we’ve also got a good presidential race shaping up,” Reed said. “This is the first race for lieutenant governor since 1996 that’s been hot. Control of the state Legislature is in play, and we’ve even got ballot measures on medical marijuana and same-sex marriage. If you can’t find an issue or a candidate to care about this year, then my goodness,” he laughed. Among Reed’s lasting achievements is his defense of Washington’s open primary, which he took pride in being able to justify as a top two primary, by using language from Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, whom Reed acknowledged had actually been using those arguments to speak

After this year, Reed is looking forward to spending more time with his wife, who
had requested that he retire, as well as his grandsons. “Unlike my friends who have gone into lobbying and consulting, I really am retiring,” Reed said. “I might do short stints as an advisor, but I’m not making any commitments.”

Snohomish County Arlington Relay for Life welcomes USS Nimitz set for June 23-24 business leaders, the Port of Everett and Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon had worked to bring USS Nimitz to Snohomish County. At the event, Reardon echoed Stephanson’s sentiment when he told attendees, “We are honored to have USS Nimitz and her crew in Snohomish County. We’ve worked vigorously to get you here, so please know that the work you do is appreciated and embraced by everybody in the community.” According to Troy McClelland, president and CEO of Economic Alliance Snohomish County, Naval Station Everett pumps $463 million into the local economy. “That’s 5 percent of the local economy,” McClelland said. “Although most of that is salaries, goods and services for the ship, a lot of that is the money sailors are spending at local businesses, car dealerships and in the housing market.” Military personnel posted at Naval Station Everett have
also been generous to the community. Navy personnel frequently volunteer with local community groups, and since 2006 they have contributed $1.5 million to the Combined Federal Campaign, managed by United Way of Snohomish County. “The Navy is interwoven into the fabric of our community,” said Dr. Dennis G. Smith, president and CEO of United Way of Snohomish County. “It was our pleasure to welcome them to their new home.” The highlight of the event was a presentation by Capt. Jeffrey S. Ruth, commanding officer of USS Nimitz. After offering his thanks for the “exceptional welcome” they’ve received, he told attendees it was “reassuring to be able to leave our families in the warm, welcoming Snohomish County community while we go out to sea.” Approximately a dozen sailors from USS Nimitz attended the event, including members of its Color Guard.

ARLINGTON — While this year’s Marysville-Tulalip Relay For Life is done, the 2012 Arlington Relay For Life still lies ahead, on the weekend of June 23-24. Kay Duskin has been actively involved in helping to coordinate the Arlington Relay For Life since its debut in 2010, and she reported that it’s already recruited 121 teams made up of 1,148 registered participants, who have raised more than $176,000. “We’ll have lots of new and expanded events in this year’s Relay, including a ‘Mr. Relay’ contest, two entertainment stages, stadium scavenger hunts, a ‘cocktail’ party for survivors, and some great food concessions,” Duskin said. “With our Disney theme, we have plenty of kid-friendly activities planned too.” This year’s Arlington Relay will also help pitch in for the Arlington Community Food Bank, as each of its “Luminaria” bags will be anchored by cans of food, all of which will be donated to the food bank after the Relay. As always, this year’s Arlington Relay For Life will take place in the John C. Larson Stadium at Arlington High School. The opening ceremony is set to kick off on Saturday, June 23, at 1 p.m., followed by the

In the meantime, those looking to support this year’s Relay still have a succession of fundraisers to take part in between now and then, with a vendor fair at 202 N. West Ave. slated to run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 16. That same day, the Relay “Team Hope” is offering a car wash at the Co-Op on
Olympic Avenue from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The “Champions of Hope” Relay teams are conducting a Zumba fundraiser on Friday, June 22, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. for $10 per person. Last year’s Arlington Relay For Life raised more than $290,000, beating the American Cancer Society’s goal of $250,000 for the event, with 155 teams and 1,849 individuals.

EVERETT — On Wednesday, June 6, Snohomish County officially welcomed officers and sailors from USS Nimitz to the community with a luncheon event attended by more than 200 business and community leaders. United Way of Snohomish County and Economic Alliance Snohomish County, organizers of the event, used the proceeds to make a $6,000 contribution to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, which provides financial, educational and other assistance to members of the military and their families. Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson issued a proclamation declaring June 6, 2012, as USS Nimitz Appreciation Day, and said, “Our community is enriched by the vitality, spirit and diversity of Navy families. We look forward to engaging the USS Nimitz family as neighbors, friends and colleagues.” Stephanson, the state’s congressional delegation, local

Ladines looks forward to 2013 season BY LAUREN SALCEDO firstname.lastname@example.org
AHS junior Ronnie Ladines.
ARLINGTON — For Arlington High School junior Ronnie Ladines, 17, playing softball seems to come as naturally as walking. “I’ve been playing softball for 11 years,” said Ladines. “I started off in little league when I was 6 years old. When I was 9 years old I started to get into select.” More than a decade of practicing has suited this Lady Eagle well, as it was her team that topped the Wesco North 4A division his season, thanks in part to her skilled pitching techniques — she struck out 146 batters and had a 10-2 record. But it was years ago that she first tried her hand at being a pitcher. “On my little league team, my dad was my coach, so I tried out pitching and really loved it,” said Ladines, who was named a first team pitcher of All-Area Softball. After a narrowly missed opportunity to go to state this year, the Arlington captain and pitcher is hoping that next year will be their time to shine. “Last year was the first state
tournament we went to,” said Ladines, who has played varsity since her freshman year. “We got really hyped up. This year, I think we were expecting to go to state so we were laying back. The other teams just rallied more than us.” It’s not an end to the season that Ladines is hoping to repeat in 2013. “I hope that next year we go from the beginning to the end,” she said. “I don’t know what our team is going to look like next year. We have four graduating.” In spite of the uncertainty, she still hopes to head to state and as captain she wants to inspire the other players to perform. “My role as captain is definitely one I had to step into, but it’s good for me to get the team in the right mindset. This upcoming year we’ll be doing more things to help each other.” Playing fast pitch isn’t her only extra-curricular activity. Ladines has been playing soccer for nine years and is a member of the varsity soccer team at AHS. She has also played basketball for seven years and competes on the junior varsity basketball team. But there
are certain parts of softball that she loves the most. “I like the individuality of softball,” she said. “In the moment, it’s your own thing and it all comes together as a team sport.” Ladines has also played for the high-quality select fast pitch team, Lake Breeze, since she was 15 years old. It was then that she began playing exposure tournaments, which ultimately led to a full-ride scholarship offer from Kent State University in Ohio. “I’ve made my commitment to Kent State University and I’ll be playing softball there,” said Ladines, a lifelong Arlington resident. “I didn’t know where I wanted to go or what I wanted to do, but the exposure tournaments help you decide.” Despite knowing where she will attend college, Ladines is leaving herself room to decide on her major. “I’m thinking of doing something in the medical field, but I haven’t narrowed it down yet,” she said. “I think I’m looking forward to using my leadership skills I’ve learned from sports that I play and bringing those into real life.”
Arlington’s Hordyk heads to MidAmerica BY LAUREN SALCEDO email@example.com
ARLINGTON — Colton Hordyk, a graduating senior from Arlington High School, has spent four years playing football for the Eagles, and heads now to play for MidAmerica Nazarene University in Olathe, Kan. “They have committed to four years, they are really excited for him to come down,” said Greg Hordyk, Colton’s grandfather. “The team looked at him and said, ‘We like the way he plays.’” Colton has played in the American Youth Football League all the way through as a Junior Eagle, until he began playing for his high school in ninth grade. Ten years of practice has served Hordyk well, as he is set to report for school on Aug. 7 and begin playing football on a scholarship at the MidAmerica Nazarene University. Hordyk said he got into playing football because of his dad, who was his first tackle football coach. “Ever since then I loved it and I never wanted to stop playing,” he said. Hordyk, who has been on the varsity team since his sopho-
more year, has played different positions but mostly focuses on running back and wide receiver. “I like them both pretty much the same, but running back can be a little more exciting,” said Hordyk, who was named to the Wesco North first team offense last season. Over the years, Hordyk has spent a lot of time in training. During school they train every morning at 7 a.m. In the summer, they train every other day, with weekends off until August when they start lifting daily, often twice a day. “I kept following my coach’s weight program, which has a lot of speed training and strength training,” said Hordyk. Hordyk said although the workouts were tough, they were necessary. “I never once wanted to give up,” he said. “I would never quit, I enjoyed it.” Moving to Kansas will be a little tough for Hordyk who has a strong sense of community and ties to Arlington. “In high school, the whole town comes to see you play. Little kids know who you are. I’ll miss the town aspect of high school football,” he said. Playing college ball will be a
bit different, as he will have to shift his focus to learning and memorizing plays. “I don’t think I have to focus on my skill as much, I’ve got my skill. I just have to work on the plays and studying those,” said Hordyk. “The coach said that if I come in knowing all the plays, I’ll be able to start.” He will continue his speed training as well, and will have to do some conditioning to get used to the 100 degree weather in Kansas. Hordyk is also an Arlington baseball player and is also considering trying out for the college baseball team as well. “The baseball coach asked me if I wanted to play,” he said. “I will probably try out because I might be able to get more scholarships.” Although Hordyk is excited about playing for his college and likes his new teammates, he will miss the friends he has back home — especially his girlfriend, as well as his best friend and fellow football player Blake McPherson. “I thought about getting a summer job, but I don’t think I will. I want to hangout with my friends before I leave,” he said.

Blue Stilly Players plan summer performances BY KIRK BOXLEITNER firstname.lastname@example.org
ARLINGTON — After years of discussions and plans, the Blue Stilly Players expect that they’ll finally spread their wings this summer, once they get maybe just a few more players. The idea for the local drama group was hatched by Bridget Clawson and was nurtured by artistic director Sue Weingarten, whose 25 years of theatrical experience at Arlington High School most recently yielded a reader’s theater tribute to the impact of the Holocaust upon France during World War II. The Blue Stilly Players’ upcoming fare features far lighter material, which Clawson and Weingarten
hope will attract audiences, and perhaps even aspiring actors, of all ages. “I have a passion for theater and am in this group to exercise that passion and share it with performers and audiences,” Weingarten said. “I love to create a world from thin air.” “My vision is a local theater group performing live theater that families can attend and afford, such as ‘Our Town’ and other older but still relevant and entertaining material,” Clawson said. “I checked high and low, but there’s no such organization in Arlington, other than the ‘Shakespeare in the Park’ put on by the city.” To that end, the Blue Stilly Players will present a

production of “Hansel and Gretel” in Terrace Park on Saturday, Aug. 25, as part of the city of Arlington’s “Summer in the Park” series. “This is going to be very exciting,” Clawson said. “It’s a play within a play that’s highly interactive with the audience.” The Blue Stilly Players have already held auditions at both the Arlington Boys & Girls Club and the Arlington Utilities Building, looking for an all-volunteer cast. “The city immediately encouraged me to fill a need,” Clawson said. “The Arlington Arts Council is also sponsoring a children’s theatrical course this summer, taught by the Blue Stilly Players. Claire Cundiff of Fogdog Gallery has provided spaces for idea exchanges, and open-mic monologues, and has been a champion of the Blue Stilly Players from the get-go.” Weingarten will not only direct “Hansel and Gretel,” but will also teach the children’s theatrical course during the month of August alongside Andy Clawson and MacKensie Mott. “This will be capped off with a production in the park, in conjunction with the Arlington Farmer’s Market, on Saturday, Sept. 1,” Bridget

Marni Otness, left, and Sue Weingarten review auditions for the Blue Stilly Players on June 5. Clawson said. “The instructors have chosen to write a retelling of ‘Aesop’s Fables’ for the students to perform on Sept. 1.” As a 23-year human resources director for Snohomish County government, Bridget Clawson
sees the Blue Stilly Players as another form of public service. As a woman whose husband of 34 years passed away in 2009, she saw theater as a way of learning to live again. “One of the touchstones in my life is community the-
ater, stretching back to my childhood,” Clawson said. “I believe that live theater should be un-stuffy and accessible. For more information, call Clawson at 360-4356223 or log onto http:// bluestillyplayers.com.

ARLINGTON — Members of the Arlington community had the opportunity to enjoy free jazz performances by the Arlington High School jazz bands on June 8 at the Gleneagle Golf Course. AHS Band Director John Grabowski presented “Jazz on the Green,” performed by Arlington High School Jazz II and On Hold Jazz Bands at the Gleneagle Golf Course Family Restaurant Bar & Grill, at 6:30 p.m. “Even some of our seniors who have been cut loose are coming to play and we couldn’t be more proud,” said Grabowski, who spoke highly of the students’ dedication. “This is really a club, it’s not for credit. They do
this along with sports, AP classes and more,” he said. Jazz on the Green is an annual event and sees mostly family and friends of the band members in the audience. “It’s a general come and have fun kind of event,” said AHS senior Andrew Clark. Avery Scott, another AHS senior, agreed. “It’s just a good way to get people exposed to jazz,” she said. Exposure is key for stressing the importance of music and music education. Many of the jazz band members spoke of budget cuts and how they affect music programs in local schools. “The choir program is being cut at elementary and middle schools,” said Matthew Miller. “They
aren’t getting that experience,” said Scott. “Fifth-grade band is being cut, so some kids have one year less experience,” said AHS sophomore Nick Taylor. Upcoming ASB President Christian Sanchez said that cuts to music education affect students in the long term, because it eliminates the foundation and fellow student Daniel Gonzalez agreed. “People think that it’s no big deal to cut elementary and middle school programs,” said Gonzalez. “It is. You have to start somewhere.” For more information on AHS jazz bands, visit Arlington High School’s website or contact band director John Grabowski at 360-613-6300.

Arlington’s Father Jim Dalton bids farewell BY KIRK BOXLEITNER firstname.lastname@example.org
ARLINGTON — Father Jim Dalton celebrated his 70th birthday on April 11 of this year, and on May 18, he’ll have served as a priest for 44 years. Unfortunately for the congregation that first welcomed Dalton to the Immaculate Conception Church in Arlington seven years ago, his last mass will be Sunday, July 1. “My memory keeps going lately,” said Dalton, who still loves Immaculate Conception Church and the Arlington community, but feels like he’s gotten old enough that it might be time to lighten his load. Although Dalton will
retire from full-time ministering, he’ll continue to assist parishes when he’s able, and is already planning retreats and reflection days for the community, that could be open to faiths beyond Catholics. “Those who have retired have warned me that I’ll soon wonder how I ever found the time to work,” Dalton laughed. “All sorts of people are already offering to help me fill in those hours.” As Dalton prepares to step down, he’s been going over boxes of old photos and recalling projects such as the bond that he’s developed with Father Christopher Wanyonyi, the director of the Christ the King
Parochial Academy in the Western Province of Kenya, who first visited Arlington nearly six years ago, a few months after Dalton visited the village of Siritanyi, near Bungoma Town in Kenya. Not only did the two priests forge a lasting friendship and a partnership between their parishes, but they also coordinated the “Pocket Change for Lukelesia’s Well” fundraiser to help install two wells in Siritanyi, one for the village, and one for the family of Lukelesia Saiti. “Support from the community has helped send 60 children through their scholarship program, and it just started with a couple of wells,” said Dalton, who recently welcomed Wanyonyi back for another return visit to Arlington. On a more local and person level, Dalton chuckled as he admitted to “feeling like Art Linkletter” during some of the children’s masses that the kids themselves have taken to calling the “Toodle-oo Mass.” “Around seven years ago, I started talking scripture just with the kids from 4 years old to fourth grade,” Dalton said. “I would always say ‘Toodle-oo’ at the end,

Although Dalton has lived through the modern history of the Catholic Church, since
Kent Lee Baker November 4, 1940 — May 21, 2012
K e n t Lee Baker, 71 (Nov 4, 1940), passed peacefully on Monday, May 21, at 8 pm in the comfort of his family. He was born in Salt Lake City, Utah and married his loving wife, Roberta (née Lindberg), on February 10, 1962 in California, eventually settling in Washington. He is survived by his wife of 50 years; his four children Michele, James, Jennifer and Jeremy; 13 adoring grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Kent is watching over his family alongside his parents, Vera Wardle Bell and Alfred J. McKinley Baker. After many years of interesting work, including the opportunity of being an engineer on the Apollo,
Kent retired and focused on two hobbies he loved dearly – nature and photography. Since his early twenties, he enjoyed photographing the beautiful places he hiked, climbed and camped, even building his own darkroom. After his retirement in 2000, he began selling prints at art shows. Eventually he joined the art guild and began to teach classes. His wife, Roberta, shares in his passion and continues to carry on their work. In lieu of flowers the family asks you to consider donations in his honor to Providence Hospice, PHHC Foundation, 2371 Wetmore Ave STE #500, Everett, WA 98201.
he was ordained three years after the Second Vatican Council in 1965, he’s just as likely to remember starting local traditions such as blessings of pets on Oct. 4, and officially recognizing parishioners older than 90 years as matriarchs and patriarchs of Immaculate Conception Church. Dalton is also quick to credit the community’s efforts with his parish’s achievements, minimizing his own role in the growth of the St. Vincent de Paul program, the mobile coldweather shelter, collections for local food banks and donations to survivors of Hurricane Katrina. “They’re stuffing 300 bags at least twice a year, on Thanksgiving and Christmas,” Dalton said.
Dalton nonetheless has been gratified to see the Palm Sunday procession that he started locally grow to roughly 100 participants, and he hopes the community will carry on the spirit of caring for one another that he’s seen and cherished during his time here. “I hope that ecumenical climate continues to grow,” Dalton said. “This community’s passion for the poor has always impressed me. I’ve always been happy to be at all of my parishes, but I told people that when I came to Arlington, it was like I’d died and gone to Heaven.” A celebration of Dalton’s time will take place at Immaculate Conception Church at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 24.
Darlene G. Hammer March 20, 1927 — May 25, 2012
Darleen peacefully passed away on May 25, 2012. She was born March 20, 1927, in Sholes NE, to Vern and Tillie Hurlbert. At age 10, she and her family moved to Silvana, WA. Darleen graduated from Arlington High School in 1945; in 1948 she married Jim Hammer and settled in Arlington. Throughout the years, she encouraged only the best for her two children. She cooked whatever she and Jim brought home from hunting/fishing trips, canned all that she grew in her garden, continued
her career as a beautician working out of her home, e nj oye d golfing, and loved watching basketba l l, especially the Sonics. Darleen was preceded in death by her husband of 61 years, her parents, and two great-grandchildren. She is survived by her son, Steve Hammer ( M a r t y), d a u g h t e r, Kathleen Whitson (Ben), grandchildren, Stephen, Melissa, Jason, John, Joe, Jennifer, Christopher, and eight great-grandchildren. A celebration of her life was held June 9th at Immaculate Conception Church, Arlington, WA.

Simon is a big bundle of love & quite a talker. He's very laid back, but actively seeks attention. He doesn't mind if it's a lap or a place next to you. He's been w/ us for quite awhile & has became the unofficial mascot of the shelter. In the morning he has quite a lot to say about his evening. When his head & back are scratched, his motor really gets going, so be ready for a loud purrer! To be even more adorable - he drinks water using his paw! Stop by & meet this cool guy.
