ARLINGTON — More than 1,000 people donned all shades of purple and circled the track at Arlington High School’s John C. Larson stadium for the third annual Relay for Life of Arlington on June 23-24. The relay, a nationwide American Cancer Society event, aims to raise funds for cancer research. Arlington’s Relay for Life raised a total of $249,933 this year, after an initial tally, although additional donations are expected to trickle in for the

next couple of months. “Despite the havoc the weather created, the Arlington community once again stepped up and did a fabulous job supporting the 2012 Relay,” said Terri Bookey, an event co-coordinator. “Donations may be made through Aug. 31, so I believe we will go over the $300,000 mark. There simply isn’t a way to adequately thank everyone for their support in our fight against cancer.” “It was a great event, it SEE RELAY, PAGE 2

Construction crews work on preparing the intersection of State Route 9 and State Route 531 for a roundabout, on June 25.

ARLINGTON — Construction crews have been working on the intersection of state routes 9 and 531 to shift traffic to the intersection’s west side so that they can build the eastern half of the roundabout into which the intersection will be converted. After having completed the paving on the area where traffic will be shifted, the Washington State Department of Transportation’s contractor, Interwest Construction, closed traffic on a single lane of State Route 9 the evening of Monday, June 25, through the morning of Tuesday, June 26, and again from the evening of June 26 through the morning of Wednesday, June 27, so that they could stripe,

install concrete barriers and move the signal heads. Weather depending, WSDOT anticipated that traffic should be completely shifted by June 27. “By Wednesday morning, all traffic should be shifted to the west, and all our work will be outside of the traveled roadway, but the shift could potentially get delayed a day or two if it rains, since we can’t stripe if it rains,” said Dustin Terpening of WSDOT Communications. “Our daytime work will include forming and pouring the water vault and roadway excavation.” Interwest Construction began prepping the site on April 30 and commenced work in earnest during the week of May 7, when they began closSEE WORK, PAGE 2

went really well,” said Leighanne Orcutt, a member of the 2012 Dream It, Hope It, Cure It Committee. The first day of the relay faced thunderstorms and heavy rain, but despite the weather, spirits remained high. “Even through that, everyone really stuck in there. It was great,” said Orcutt. A total of 1,286 participants and 125 teams spent almost 24 hours circling the track, which started with the Survivor and Caregiver lap — a celebratory lap which begins with survivors being cheered on by crowds on the sidelines and joining caregivers at the opposite side of the track. Arlington resident Robyn Lynn is a breast cancer survivor who spoke to the crowd that was gathering to begin the relay. “That day — September

19, 2008 — changed my life forever,” she said, of the day she was diagnosed. “I had no signs. No lump, no bump, no risk factors. I was an athlete, an organic vegetarian, I didn’t smoke. I had no family history of breast cancer.” “They were able to remove the cancer and this year I celebrate my four year anniversary,” Lynn said, as the crowd applauded her. “As you walk, you’re raising money for valuable resources,” said Lynn. “Your efforts to help raise money are appreciated more than we could ever say. We survivors appreciate you taking time out of your lives to do something for us.” Lynn spoke about how her diagnosis changed her life, but not necessarily for the worse. “It’s as if the world tilted a little bit,” she said. “You really start thinking about the important things

ber of themed laps including the pajama lap, prince and princess lap, the sports fanatic lap and poker lap. Appearances were made by Disney characters, Zumba dancers and belly dancers. Of course the night wouldn’t be complete without a Luminaria ceremony, in which participants decorated white bags with the names of those who lost the battle with cancer. Lynn urged those who attended the relay to not wait until they get the diagnosis to change their lives. The relay’s Luminaria committee used canned food to weigh down the Luminaria bags. A total of 1,025 pounds was collected and donated to the Arlington Food Bank. “This is about realizing that life is short and time is precious. My life is without a doubt better after cancer,” said Lynn. “I became a writer, a public speaker, I went back to school. I encourage you to allow the impact of cancer to let you examine your priorities. Love yourself fiercely. Be your own advocate for happiness,” Lynn said. “It’s not too late to follow your dreams. Think about who you would be if nobody and nothing else mattered besides you.”

ing lanes at night. Terpening and Jay Brye, WSDOT’s engineering manager for the project, expect construction to last much of the summer, but expressed relative optimism about completing it early enough to make it convenient for area families. “Our goal is to have the roundabout open in time for the start of the school year,” Brye said. “The eastern half of the roundabout should take about three to four weeks to complete, after which we’ll work in quadrants on the west side, first in the northwest quadrant, then in the southwest quadrant. The weather hasn’t been doing us any favors so far, though.” Brye and Terpening both acknowledged the controversy caused by the roundabout’s installation, but they believe the roundabout will ultimately help protect motorists and make their commutes more convenient. “Jay and I have had meetings all over Snohomish and Skagit counties about roundabouts, and we’ve heard from both sides of the debate,” Terpening said. “The fact of the matter is that you’re not going to get T-boned or rear-ended in a roundabout like you would in a traffic signal intersection like you have at state routes 9 and 531 now.” Terpening explained that roundabouts force drivers to slow down and eliminate left turns, both of which make them safer, and while the roundabout currently under construction is being striped for single-lane usage,

“You don’t have to worry about people running red lights at 50 miles per hour and colliding with you.” Dustin Terpening WSDOT it’s being built wide enough to be re-striped as a doublelane roundabout as 172nd Street NE is widened in the future. “You don’t have to worry about people running red lights at 50 miles per hour and colliding with you,” Terpening said. “I know some folks are worried that roundabouts aren’t wide enough to handle truck traffic, but we’ve specifically designed this roundabout to be able to accommodate anything from large trucks and buses to emergency response vehicles and horse trailers.” “By increasing the intersection’s capacity down the line, we’re alleviating the bottleneck at that point,” Brye said. “It should work efficiently even with the significant amount of development that’s anticipated to occur in the area. The surrounding area is planned as a commercial and industrial center for the region, and local planners expect more homes, businesses and drivers in the future.” In the meantime, crews will work on both the intersection itself and the surrounding drainage system and water mains.

Cities urge residents to follow fireworks laws

While the cities of Arlington and Marysville encourage their citizens to celebrate the upcoming Fourth of July holiday in a festive manner, the cities’ police officers and firefighters want to make sure that those who choose to use fireworks do so in a safe and legal fashion. The city of Arlington allows fireworks to be sold from 9 a.m. on Thursday, June 28, to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4, whereas the city of Marysville allows fireworks to be sold from noon to 11 p.m. on June 28 and from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. from Friday, June 29 through July 4. Marysville residents may discharge their fireworks between 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. on July 4, while Arlington residents may discharge their fireworks between 9 a.m. and midnight on July 4. Neither city allows its residents to discharge their fireworks on any other day, and both cities limit their legal fireworks to Class C, or “safe and sane” fireworks. Neighboring Native American reservations may sell fireworks that do not conform to these laws, but such fireworks must be detonated on reservation lands. The retail fireworks stands of “Boom City” on the Tulalip Tribal Reservation are open from 6 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week, through July 4. Boom City also provides a lighting and detonation area on site for customers, since not all of the fireworks sold at Boom City are allowed to be detonated off the reservation. Security personnel will monitor the area to ensure that children aged 12 years and younger have adults aged 18 years or older present. According to Marysville Fire District Division Chief and Fire Marshal Tom Maloney, fireworks that are illegal off tribal lands include bottle rockets, skyrockets, missiles and firecrackers. M-80s and larger, as well as dynamite and any improvised, homemade or altered explosive devices such as tennis balls, sparkler bombs or cherry bombs are likewise illegal explosive devices, and those who possess or use such illegal explosive devices can expect to be charged with a felony. In its online list of tips

to the public, the Arlington Fire Department noted that illegal fireworks are often unpackaged and wrapped in plain brown paper, and warned against purchasing any fireworks that are not in their original packages, or are in opened or damaged packages. Marysville police are taking enforcement of these laws seriously and will be citing those caught with illegal fireworks between now and the Fourth of July. Under state law, possession or discharge of illegal fireworks is a misdemeanor offense punishable by a fine of up to $1,000, up to a year in jail and a mandatory court appearance. City of Marysville Public Information Officer Doug Buell pointed out that Marysville police can issue criminal citations to violators or civil citations, the latter similar to a standard ticket. Marysville police may issue a civil infraction, or fine, in an amount up to $500, instead of a criminal citation. The criminal misdemeanor fine is consistent with the standard state penalty of an amount not to exceed $1,000 and/or 90 days in jail. Gross misdemeanor offenses carry a fine of up to $5,000 and/or a year in jail, and a person with three or more civil infractions within a two-year time period will be cited for a misdemeanor. Marysville Police Cmdr. Robb Lamoureux explained that such civil infractions enable officers to spend more time on the streets responding to fireworks complaints, and less time processing criminal citation paperwork. He added that the safety of individuals and property is the police department’s utmost concern. “Use caution and follow safety rules for responsible use of fireworks,” Lamoureux said. “Illegal fireworks in particular pose a public safety and medical hazard, and they have the potential to cause property damage in the Marysville area.” Although Arlington Assistant City Administrator Kristin Banfield believes that Arlington police are more likely to try and educate those using illegal fireworks, or those using fireworks illegally, she warned that, “If they have to make a repeat trip to your place for fireworks, it’ll probably

result in a fine.” Officials in both cities urge Fourth of July holiday revelers to clean up their fireworks after they’re finished. “After you light it up, clean it up,” Buell said. “Discarded fireworks the days after the Fourth are a neighborhood eyesore, and smoldering, spent fireworks can still pose a fire hazard if not disposed of properly.” To dispose of spent fireworks properly, the Arlington Fire Department advises that people let their used fireworks lay on the ground until they are cool and there is no chance that any residue will reignite, after which they should place all the expended firework cases in a bucket of water to soak them thoroughly. Those who use fireworks should keep a bucket of water or a running water hose close by in case of a firework malfunction or fire. “First and foremost, our fire and police chiefs strongly encourage our residents to stay safe by attending the local public displays, such as the one at the Arlington Boys & Girls Club sponsored by the Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club of Arlington,” Banfield said.

‘Boom City’ fireworks vendors such as Rocky Harrison are allowed to sell their fireworks at different hours than stands in the city limits of Arlington and Marysville, but some of the fireworks sold at ‘Boom City’ can only be lit or detonated there, since they’re not legal outside of the Tulalip Tribal Reservation. “If you do use fireworks, however, only use them as intended, and use common sense. Don’t try to alter them or combine them, and never relight a ‘dud’ firework. Spectators should keep a safe distance from the shooter, and alcohol and fireworks do not mix, so have a ‘designated shooter.’ Only those older than 12 should be allowed to

handle fireworks, especially sparklers of any type.” For more information, visit the city of Marysville’s fireworks website at http://

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Reflections in Strawberries For 25-plus years it was my honor to serve as the Managing Director/Grand Parade Director for the Marysville Strawberry Festival. My job was to make sure events were all scheduled and everything was in place in time to welcome event participants and spectators to our community the third week in June of each year. This was no small task, but one I took to heart and totally enjoyed. At the end of each event, I would sit for a moment, take a deep breath and say to myself, “We did it and it was just great!” This year I have been honored by Maryfest Inc. President Debbie Libbing, Parade Director Carol Kapua and the Maryfest organization having been named the Grand Marshal for this year’s Grand Parade. While this is a great honor, it does bring a sense of sadness. I have had the honor to work with so many terrific people over the years. They were all truly dedicated to one purpose — maintaining the quality and high standards set forth by those who came before. While some of these people are no longer with us, their spirits dance through the streets each year at Festival time, including Bernie St. Onge, the man who in 1974 said “No, this festival will not die;” Duke Demiglio, the voice of the Marysville Strawberry Festival for more years that I can count; Audrey Black, writer for The Marysville Globe, a.k.a. The Nice Old Lady; Larry Johnson, one of the originators of the Adult Trike Race; Larry Neilsen, one of the best “Grand Parade Assistants” anyone could ever ask for; and

the lead will be ex-Mayor Rita and Frank Matheny. For many years now, my role has been reversed. I have now become a spectator, not an organizer. I have been able to sit on the sidelines and watch as “the parade passes by.” Many years ago, then Marysville Mayor Rita Matheny gave me a small framed picture of three children, in band uniforms, watching fireworks, the caption reads: “If there were no parades and no celebrations — our brass bands would cry, our sky rockets and sparklers would fade and be forgotten ...” My wish for all of you is to, “Keep the Spirit of Strawberry Festival Alive” and let the Festival begin — year after year after year after year! Sincerely, Cheryl Deckard Marysville

A day trip to Bryant “Come thou … One day amid the woods with me…” 19th century poet William Cullen Bryant’s “A Summer Ramble” haunted me as I left I-5 at exit 212, StanwoodBryant Road, and drove east a few minutes. Bryant, Washington, elevation 171 feet, has an official census population of zero (its mailing address is Arlington,) some magnificent history, building No. 1 on Snohomish County’s register of historic places, and trees, trees, trees. When I reached Highway 9 I had arrived; the Bryant Store was on my left and the current end of the Centennial Trail across the road. No, Bryant wasn’t named for this poet who venerated the outdoors yet lived his life in the east. Responsible journals say it was named for the Bryant Lumber & Shingle Co., about 1892. But as I wandered up and down the roads, crossed Roth Creek and wondered for whom the silver stream was named, I knew that Bryant the poet wrote of nature’s marvels exactly like these. Up the hill on 55th Avenue, there is three-tenths of a mile without civilization. It was easy to imagine the narrow road away, imagine that I was in the forest primeval. Fifty-third dead ends at Molstad’s Place, for generations the homestead of the folks who owned these acres. Prewar homes nestle on that hillside, seemingly reconciled to the new ramblers that are their neighbors. Around Loyal Heights I watched a doe and two fawns graze on the grounds of an old, white school on 269th NE. If you want to know anything about Bryant, or hanker for a

huge cup of coffee for a buck (refills just 50 cents) stop at the Bryant Store. Established in 1929 by Charles Smith and the first building on Snohomish County’s Register of Historic Places, it was home and business to Charles and later to his son, Norm Smith, who worked the store for 45 years. Terrie Welch, Smith family friend and the store’s owner, said, “We have a wall of stuff for the kids, at 25 cents or less. And night crawlers, if you want to try your luck for trout or bass in Bryant Lake, ‘just over there.’” An inviting patio area beside the coffee pot offers a homemade wire-spool umbrella table, and features a 3x5 handdrawn map of 1900 Bryant, featuring landmarks like the Berge Cow Barn and La Bross Saloon. The Centennial Trail is 28 miles of asphalt bike/pedestrian path with a horse trail beside it, beginning in Snohomish in 1989 and finally arriving here last year. There is no concrete schedule for its continuation northward from Bryant, although it is estimated that half a million people used the trail last year. It follows Highway 9 and ends near the Bryant Community Church, a building from the 1950s that is also the Bryant Grange. I wanted to investigate the Pioneer Museum, but it wasn’t

open on Friday. The Genealogical Society is in new digs, a little old house on the hill, and Marietta Roth, a resident since 1963, is a pillar. I visited in her kitchen. “Roth?” I flipped back through my notes. “Roth Creek? Named for some of your family?” Her 84-year-old eyes sparkled like a girl’s. “I loved Bob Roth so much,” she confessed. “I had that sign made and planted.” No one has ever complained, said Marietta. On the back of Max Henderson’s property, while searching for abandoned railroad tracks said to be there, I wondered how the Western Hemlock became Washington’s state tree. Only cedars and maples a hundred feet high abounded, sporting skirts of tall ferns. Decaying stumps four feet in diameter had birthed huckleberry bushes. Once again, the forest primeval filled my senses. I followed a slow logging truck out of town, a welcome sight. I didn’t complain as I might have forty years ago when they were abundant, and their logs twice as big. I thought of William Cullen Bryant again, of his poem “Autumn Woods.” “The woods of Autumn all around our vale, have put their glory on.” Such will be Bryant, Washington in October. I must plan another day trip. J. R. Nakken is a local author. Her books are in stock at Tulalip Hotel and Casino Gift Shops, Rainbow’s End in Everett, or at Amazon and Barnes & Noble on the Web.

Arlington prepares for annual festivities


ARLINGTON — The Marysville Strawberry Festival wrapped up in grand style for the year, but the city of Arlington’s Fourth of July celebrations are still ahead, and promise to feature both familiar favorites and a few new wrinkles this year. On Wednesday, July 4, the morning kicks off with a $5-per-plate pancake breakfast at Haller Park, located at 1100 West Ave., from 7 a.m. to noon, courtesy of the Arlington Rural Fire Department. The action starts with the Pedal, Paddle Puff Triathlon, which begins in Haller Park before mapping out a course that consists of 5.8 miles of biking to River Meadows Park and six miles of canoeing and kayaking down the Stillaguamish River, followed by a three-mile run. The Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce sponsors this event, whose registration runs from 8-9 a.m. in time for a 10 a.m. start. For more information, call 360-403-3448 or log onto The Kiwanis Club of Arlington’s Scholarship Auction will also return to Haller Park, with silent auctions at 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. followed by the live auction at noon. To donate items and help out graduating Arlington and Lakewood high school seniors in the process, call 360-435-5789. A new activity this year is the “Old Fashioned Fourth” which will run from 1-7 p.m. in Legion Park, located at 114 N. Olympic Ave. The Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce will be offering children’s games, relay races, food concessions, balloons, apple pie and more. Children 12 years and younger are invited to pre-

cede the Grand Parade with the traditional Kiddies Parade, whose registration take place at 3:30 p.m. at the Public Utility District, located at 210 Division St. The lineup and judging will happen at Frontier Bank, prior to the parade itself at 4:30 p.m. The Cascade Valley Hospital and Clinics sponsor not only the Kiddies Parade, but also the Grand Parade, the latter with the ArlingtonSmokey Point Chamber of Commerce. The Fourth of July Grand Parade on Olympic Avenue commences at 5 p.m., but registration runs from 2:304:30 p.m. at the Public Utility District, and those who have not registered by 4:30 p.m. will not be able to enter. For more information on either parade, call 360618-7848, or log onto either or for application forms. The action comes back to Haller Park for the Great Stilly Duck Dash at 7:30 p.m., whose rubber ducks will be launched into the Stillaguamish River from Lincoln Bridge, weather permitting. Cash awards of $5,000 will go to the firstplace finisher, $2,000 to second place, $1,000 to third and $100 to the fourththrough 10th-place finishers. Tickets can be purchased at the Arlington Pharmacy or at Haller Park after the Grand Parade. For more information, log onto www. The Fourth of July fireworks display over the Arlington Boys & Girls Club will start around

9 p.m., shortly after dark, courtesy of the ArlingtonSmokey Point Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club of Arlington. One week later, the Arlington Fly-In and Street Fair will draw locals and travelers alike to downtown Arlington and the Arlington Municipal Airport. The Arlington Fly-In runs from Wednesday, July 11, through Sunday, July 15, while the Street Fair runs from Friday, July 13, through July 15. The Fly-In will offer its “Kids Day” on Thursday, July 12, during which all children accompanied by adults are admitted for free. Activities begin at 10 a.m. and are set to include flight simulators, candy airplane making, face painting, helicopters, “Bubble Mania” and the Arlington High School Robotics Club. On July 13, “Vintage Day” will showcase 1920s and ‘30s era aircraft at the airport from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., while live music is set to kick off at 6 p.m. On Saturday, July 14, the Fly-In Car Show will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., featuring planes, tractors and automobiles — the latter including antiques, classics and hot rods — with live music playing in the background all day. The aircraft judging awards will be presented at 5:15 p.m. and followed by a live performance by the Mukilteo Outrageous Jazz Orchestra at 7 p.m. The Fly-In’s multitude of events will conclude with the Saturday evening “Hot Air Balloon Night Glow” on July 14.

Arlington, Marysville receive road funds

Arlington and Marysville are among 40 Washington cities that have been chosen to receive shares of $50 million in federal safety funds for 75 street improvement projects statewide. More than $9 million in federal funds have been set aside to improve safety on streets in Snohomish County alone, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation. Arlington expects to receive approximately $44,000 for such improvements, while Marysville is looking to receive approximately $1,744,000, with much of that money centered on State Avenue. The two cities will share monies for improvements to Smokey Point Boulevard. The intersections for which Arlington is responsible on Smokey Point Boulevard are 169th, 172nd and 174th streets, for which funds of approximately $7,000, $10,000 and $27,000 have been set aside, respectively, to add yellow back plate retroreflective tape, upgrade pedestrian displays to the countdown type, and also upgrade mast arm street name signs to current size, lettering style and retroreflective standards. The left turn phasing at the intersection of 174th Street and Smokey Point Boulevard will also be modified from permissive to protected/permissive. “These are relatively minor measures that will improve safety by improving visibility,” said Jim Kelly,

public works director for the city of Arlington. “By making them more reflective, the signs will stand out more, so that they’re more noticeable in storms or at night.” Although Arlington has not yet been awarded its funds, once that happens, Kelly plans to use the city’s contract with Snohomish County’s road maintenance crews to install the improvements, possibly before the end of the summer. “We already have an interlocal agreement with them to perform maintenance like this, to help keep our roads safe.” While $250,000 of the funds going to Marysville fall under the heading of citywide intersection safety improvements, the remainder will be devoted to State Avenue’s intersections — $1,395,000 to its intersections with First through 88th streets, and $99,000 to its intersections with 116th through 128th streets. “These funds were based on histories of serious accidents,” said John Tatum, traffic engineer for the city of Marysville. “If your locations weren’t the sites of serious accidents, you weren’t invited to apply. We were told that we could do a few big improvements or a bunch of little improvements, on as many intersections as we wanted, so we did a number of smaller improvements on other intersections, while setting aside funds for the big items at the intersection of State Avenue and 88th Street.” While the intersections with streets such as First, Third, Sixth, Eighth

and 76th received similar improvements to those of Arlington, ranging from yellow back plate retroreflective tape and upgraded pedestrian displays to pedestrian walk timing for four of those crossings, Fourth Street’s intersection is designated to receive improvements to its traffic signals including queue detection for gridlock caused by train crossings, while the signal system at the 80th Street intersection is slated to be completely replaced. As for the 88th Street intersection with State Avenue, it’s due to receive a westbound thru/ right-turn lane, an additional northbound signal head, pedestrian walk timing and advanced railroad preemption circuitry. “These measures address specific issues that we’ve had,” Tatum said. “They improve safety by relieving congestion, since stop-andgo traffic leads to more rearenders. We’re also working with the railroads to improve the crosswalk timing and give pedestrians a better chance.” Tatum personally credited city of Marysville Public Works Director Kevin Nielsen with pushing him to “be bold” in seeking these improvement funds, although he reiterated that every request was motivated by a demonstrated need. “Hopefully, this will help our signals at the intersection of Fourth and State get smarter, so that cars aren’t sitting there on a green light when the train is going across,” Tatum said. “We’ve got a pole at Fourth and Cedar that’s been hit three times by trucks, so this will help take care of that problem too.” WSDOT studied collisions for a five-year period and discovered that intersectionrelated crashes accounted for more than half of all serious injury and fatality collisions on city streets and citymaintained state highways.

Hibulb Cultural Center hosts ‘The Rememberer’ BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

TULALIP — Visitors to the Hibulb Cultural Center on Friday, June 22, were transported back in time by more than a century through the storytelling skills of the Red Eagle Soaring Native Youth Theatre group. “The Rememberer” is a play based on the life of Joyce Simmons Cheeka, a young Squaxin Indian girl forcibly taken from her home in 1911 and placed in the government-run Tulalip Indian Training School. While a few of the close to two dozen cast members were in their 20s or 30s, most of the actors were in their teens, carrying on the legacy of a theater group that had started in Seattle before they were born. “This is about remembering our heritage and our connection to the land,” said Curtis Ahenakew, an adult actor with the group, before the multi-tribal company of performers depicted how the government-run schools had sought to strip the Native American students of their culture, by forbidding them to speak their own language

and pass own their traditional tales. “I was worried how well these kids would pull this off, because it’s a big task, but I almost cried at their last show.” “The Rememberer” chronicles how Joyce not only kept the memories of the stories and customs that her elders had passed onto her, but also how she survived the influenza epidemic that claimed so many other Native American students and their teachers during the early 20th century. Like her grandfather Mud Bay Sam, Joyce became “the rememberer” for her people, even in the face of government educators who believed they needed to “kill the Indian to save the man.” Cecil Cheeka, Joyce’s son, sat in on the evening performance of “The Rememberer” at the Hibulb Cultural Center, and praised both the young actors and the families who had supported their endeavors. “Parents, with as many young people as are part of this, just getting them to their practices is a task of no small magnitude,” Cecil Cheeka said. “When Red Eagle

Soaring started performing this play 18 years ago, the 24 kids in its cast was the largest group of young Native American actors in Seattle. This play showed me a slice of my mother’s life that I never knew about, and 18 years later, it’s still very special to see play out. I’m especially impressed that such young actors can memorize 88 pages of dialogue.” Fern Naomi Renville, one of the adult actors, explained that the students had started rehearsing in the last week of January, and made their theatrical debut at “Folk Life” on Memorial Day. Tulalip Tribal Vice Chair Deborah Parker first encountered the Red Eagle Soaring Native Youth Theatre in 1989, when she was still a student at the University of Washington, and she passed around the drum to collect $279 in donations for the company from the audience, who gave even though it was a free show. “I love to see our young people continuing to tell our stories,” Parker said. “I only hope we’ll see more youth here in the years to come. It’s good to learn your identity.”






Sheriff’s Office shows off equipment BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

TULALIP — The grounds of the Tulalip Resort Casino showcased a demonstration on Thursday, June 14, of the same skills and equipment that members of the Snohomish County Sheriff ’s Office Air Support Unit used to rescue a 13-year-old Burien, Wash., boy from a

ledge just a few feet from 270-foot Wallace Falls on May 20. Snohomish County Sheriff ’s Deputy Bill Quistorf was the chief pilot for that rescue mission, and after he and roughly half a dozen fellow members of the Air Support Unit demonstrated a flight-and-rescue set of maneuvers near

the Tulalip Resort using the Snohomish County Helicopter SnoHawk 10 and the Airborne Tactical Extraction Platform, the helicopter touched down so that onlookers from the Washington State Council of Police and Sheriff ’s Conference could examine the “AirTEP” more closely. “This thing could pick up

Snohomish County Sheriff’s Deputy Bill Quistorf explains how the Airborne Tactical Extraction Platform, or ‘AirTEP,’ opens up upon hitting the ground, but also folds up to carry civilians securely.

10 people, if they were small enough,” Quistorf said of the AirTEP, which opens up like an upside-down umbrella as soon as it hits the ground to release the personnel in its pockets, which fold up and lock securely. “The platform itself can carry around 2,000 pounds, if you’ve got low fuel and light gear. It’s got backup systems, but the rope that holds it is beefy and rated for about 3,300 pounds.” While the AirTEP includes places for personnel to clip in safety harnesses, its pockets will also hold civilians whom rescuers can remove from high-rise buildings, tall mountains or other steep elevation points with no other avenues of escape. “With that boy, we didn’t have a trail that we could move him to,” Quistorf said. “I think Wallace Falls was our first opportunity to use the AirTEP as part of a mission. The AirTEP cost about $80,000, and it’s already proven itself to be a very valuable tool. It’s multiple applications include search and rescue, hazardous response, firefighting and transportation of SWAT.”

Aviation is on a lot of folks’ bucket lists,” he laughed. Years ago, a majority of commercial pilots came into the field through military experience, but with measures such as stop-loss retentions having kept many of those pilots in uniform, Duncan sees general aviation as the future for replenishing the ranks of civilian pilots. “Aviation is definitely something different to do,” Smith said. “There’s no other way you can just wake up in the morning and travel halfway across the country in the same day. You don’t get the experiences while driving or riding a train, or even as a

passenger on a larger plane, that you do as the pilot of your own plane.” As a flight instructor, Smith described the enjoyment he gets from helping prospective plots achieve their goals, while Vicki Duncan, Kevin’s wife and vice president of AFS, echoed her husband and Smith’s sentiments that helping to grow the aerospace and business communities around the Arlington Municipal Airport is one of their own goals with the company. Arlington Flight Services is following its grand opening with a pancake breakfast from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 30. Arlington Flight Services is located in Building 44A at 18810 59th Dr. NE.

ARLINGTON — In spite of a steady downpour that kept much of their festivities confined to the interior of their hangar, Arlington Flight Services still celebrated its official grand opening at the Arlington Municipal Airport on Saturday, June 23. As of April of this year, Arlington Flight Services is a new fixed-base operator that supports general and business aviation with a variety of services, including flight training and aircraft rental, maintenance and management. At the grand opening and open house, the company’s employees pledged to provide the highest level of service to their customers, as well as memorable experiences in aviation, and noted how much they look forward to bringing in new aviators and corporate clientele to the Arlington Municipal Airport. “We’re already growing by leaps and bounds,” said Lucas Smith, flight operations manager and director for AFS. “We expect to see some additions in the future.” AFS President Kevin Duncan touted the versatility of AFS as a full-service flight center, and estimated that his three flight instructors possess a combined total of more than 16,000 flight hours between them. “The two types of people

According to Blue, cadets continued to talk about the fun they had right through graduation. “The field trip was awesome,” said Alice Moore, a fourth-year cadet. “We got to experience and see a lot of things that some people won’t get to experience in their lifetimes. If you didn’t go, you missed out.” “The field trip was really fun,” agreed Noah Delossantos, a first-year cadet. “I had a great time with all my friends in the cadet corps. I wish I wasn’t moving so I could go on another trip with all my friends, because it was one of my favorite moments of high school.”

ARLINGTON — Arlington High School’s Air Force Junior ROTC made history before the end of the 2011-12 school year, by taking their first overnight trip to Fairchild Air Force Base. Retired Air Force instructors Maj. Mike Blue and Master Sgt. Alvin Moore accompanied 20 AHS AFJROTC cadets on the trip, which left on a charter bus on the evening of Thursday, May 3, and stayed in Fairchild Air Force Base’s Survival School billeting with a parent chaperone. On Friday, May 4, the cadets spent the day touring the base and its air traffic control tower, as well as exploring areas such as the Survival School itself and watching demonstrations from the law enforcement dog handlers. Cadets were able to practice parachute landing and helicopter retrieval lifts, allowing them to get a taste of the training that Air Force personnel receive. Cadet Hayden Lamie plans to enlist in the Air Force after graduating AHS, and hopes to become a Survival, Escape, Resistance and Evasion Specialist, so getting to tour the Survival School was the highlight of the trip for him. “Meeting a SERE Specialist was a peek into the future for me,” Lamie said. “It has definitely inspired me to do all I can to achieve my goal of one day joining those 400 other

Black Sox win Tournament of Champions BY Lauren Salcedo

ARLINGTON — The Stilly Valley Black Sox have made a league record as the first majors team to win the Tournament of Champions in Stilly Valley history. The team of 11- and 12year-old baseball players ended their season with a 23-2 record and a trophy from the June 5 final championship game against Pacific, a top-performing District 1 team, at the Lake Stevens Community Park. “We were the league champs and went on to the Tournament of Champions, which brings together every league from District 1, which is all of Snohomish County,” said team manager Kevin Rork. “This is the first Stilly Valley majors team to win it. It’s a pretty big deal.” Jason Burbee, father of player Camden Burbee, said he was proud for his son’s team to make it so far. “I know that Stilly Valley had a history of never winning the Tournament of Champions, usually it was Mill Creek who dominated the tournament,” said

Burbee. To avoid letting Mill Creek take the win, the team spent every practice discussing what they hoped to achieve with the season, what they did successfully and what they needed to improve. “It was something we talked about, our goals at the beginning,” said Rork. “We talked about being league champs and about winning the tournament, we thought about that every step of the way.” An Arlington win for the Tournament of Champions is rare for the majors team, according to Rork, who has been a Stilly Valley manager for five years. “Typically it’s Mill Creek or Pacific who are top dogs,” he said. “It’s great for our team from Arlington to win it this year.” The team had three allstar players who stood out this season with skilled pitching and consistent hitting. “These three kids led us all season,” said Rork. Jake Russell, Trevor Kazen and Gavin Rork have all had quite a successful year. “Jake has been a really dominant pitcher. He’s been

straight at you,” said Russell. “It was pretty awesome to compete in the TOC and it was nice being in the winner’s bracket because if we did lose we’d still get to play.

But we never lost.” Kazen is also recognized for having impressive skill on the mound. “He’s got really good defense and consistent hitting,” said Rork.

“But he has also pitched phenomenally. He’s one of the kids who would come in and relieve the pitcher and See CHAMPs, PAGE 11

McPherson overcomes injury to excel BY Lauren Salcedo

ARLINGTON — During his junior year at Arlington High School, Blake McPherson was a star football player and multi-sport athlete. So when his knee began to give him trouble during summer conditioning, he ignored it. “During the summer we were doing conditioning drills and my knee started to hurt,” said McPherson, a quarterback for the Eagles. “I was basically in tears, but I kept playing through it.” Once the football season began, McPherson’s condition worsened. “I didn’t want to go to the doctor, I thought it was a torn meniscus but I wanted to keep playing,” he said. “After we won the Stilly Cup, I figured we would probably be league champs, so that’s when I finally went to the doctor.” McPherson was seen by Dr. Jeff Cartwright, orthopedic surgeon in Arlington, who performed an MRI. “Cartwright came in the room and asked me where it hurt and I showed him,” said McPherson. “He

said, ‘Either you’re lying or you’re the toughest kid I know.’” As it turns out, McPherson had torn his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) an injury that would normally stop an athlete’s career instantly. In addition to the ACL, McPherson’s medial collateral ligament (MCL) and lateral collateral ligament (LCL) were also torn and he had a damaged meniscus as well. The injury began with a partial ACL tear during summer training, and the rest of the knee became damaged during regular season play. “I was very surprised,” said Cartwright. “You watch him play and think, ‘It can’t be that bad.’” McPherson underwent surgery in October of 2010, and feared that the injury would negatively affect his athletic career. But McPherson was still determined to succeed. He attended physical therapy with Todd Aalbu at Pro Action three mornings a week before school and listened to all of his doctors’ instructions. “After a while, I was faster,

stronger. My knee was better than before,” said McPherson. “He profited from good surgery, good therapy and amazing determination,” said Cartwright. “There’s a lot of will power there.” McPherson led the Eagles in his senior year of football and joined the wrestling team once again. “I was going 100 percent. I went undefeated and won the district championship and the regional championship and lost 6-5 in the state championship.” Brad McPherson, Blake’s older brother, was astonished and proud of what his brother could accomplish with following the injury. “When most people have ACL surgery, their sports career is over. But Blake came back stronger, breaking five school records,” said Brad McPherson. Blake McPherson took second place in javelin in the state track meet this year as well. On June 2, McPherson won the Washington State Decathlon — in which the 40 best athletes in the state compete in 10 events — by 500 points. “He smoked everybody,” said

Brad McPherson. His successful senior season was made even more exciting for Blake McPherson when the United States Military Academy at West Point recruited him to play quarterback. “They are also recruiting me to throw javelin and decathlon now

too,” said McPherson, who wanted to thank those who had a hand in getting back on his feet following surgery. “Cartwright’s helped me the whole entire way,” said McPherson. “Him and Todd are by far enough to bring me back.”

‘I’ve just got to stay calm,’” said Clark, whose favorite part of the tournament was the crowd. “There was a lot of fans there to support us,” he said. After that, in the first game in semi-finals versus Pacific, another highlight helped the Black Sox move on to the final game. “Tom Roe was great at defense but struggled at the plate,” said Rork. “We were down 2-1 in the third inning and had two kids on base. Tom came up and hit a triple and we ended up winning the game.” Roe described his reaction after winning the final game. “Ecstatic,” he said. “We were jumping up and screaming. We were so happy, but we settled down to high-five the other team.” Elijah Clauson agreed. “It was pretty fun. I jumped up and was screaming and after that we applauded for the audience.” Burbee’s son Camden, had a very good season, particularly on the offense. “He

had a .440 for the season so that was really good,” said Burbee. “He ended up making the all-stars so he’s really happy about that.” “I think I did really great this year, and I hit my first home run,” said Camden Burbee, who was excited about the TOC. “In the beginning, I thought it would be one of the hardest things ever in my baseball career. Once we won, we were super happy.” Levi Wiseman was the only 10-year-old to make it, and was proud of his team’s success. “It felt really good to win,” he said. “Especially when I hit a double in our first game against Alderwood.” Camden Burbee had

another trick up his sleeve — his hair. “Coach Rork is kind of superstitious and he told Camden that his hair was good luck,” said Burbee, of his redheaded son. “He didn’t cut his hair all season, because we were winning. We really needed to get it cut but he was just like, ‘Coach doesn’t want me to cut it,’” Burbee laughed. Camden Burbee ended up cutting his hair following the Tournament of Champions. Many of the players thanked their coaches for support throughout the year. “I started out hitting really well,” said Dominick Olsen. “Coach Gary really helped me out with my hitting.” Perhaps one of the most

exciting moments in the tournament came during the championship game also against Pacific. “Melecio Muniz didn’t have a hit all year, but he had a great attitude the whole way,” said Rork. “In the championship game against Pacific, he got a hit.” Muniz hit a single up the middle to score two RBI and help the team finish with the championship trophy. “I was up there thinking, ‘I need a hit’ and I felt really good when I hit that ball,” said Muniz. “It made me so happy I almost cried.” “It was a great moment,” said Rork. “Moments like that are what Little League is all about.”


pick right up.” “I was really excited,” said Kazen, who thanked his coaches for making the team work hard to reach their goal. Gavin Rork, Kevin Rork’s son, has also had an impressive year. “His strength is he really gets on bases and causes commotion,” said Kevin Rork. “He steals a lot of bases and gets the team going.” Gavin Rork was extremely happy to be competing in such a tough game. “That was the first time I’d won in a district tournament,” he said. “I was really excited.” He is also proud of his own personal progress as a member of the team. “My pitching has gotten better and my hitting has been with more power. I can hit farther now,” he said. “My favorite part is running. I like stealing bases.”

According to Gavin Rork, the team’s attitude following a winning play was almost indescribable. “I think that during the TOC, we had a game where we were down but then we came out to win it and we went crazy,” he said. “I’m happy that we have everybody that we have on our team.” Kevin Rork agreed. “Gavin, Trevor and Jake get a lot of attention, but all the players have had some great highlights,” he said. In their third game in the tournament, the Black Sox played South Snohomish. “We were tied 4-4 in extra innings,” said Rork. “We had George Toponce on first. Dane Clark got to bat and hit a triple to the fence for the win.” “He hit the gap perfectly and made it to the fence,” said Burbee. Clark admitted to being a little bit nervous, but he didn’t let it phase him. “I went out there and there was a kid on first and I thought,

Grace Academy graduates look to diverse futures BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — Grace Academy’s graduating class of 2012 was described as “unified in Christ, yet fierce individuals” by Joan Dabrowski, art and yearbook teacher for the school. “The class of 2012 is one that will be remembered as an enigma,” Dabrowski said. “Their future plans are as diverse as their personalities.” Patti Frisk, the class advisor for 2012’s graduates, described them as “creative, fun-loving and sensitive to God’s word,” and her desire for their future would be that their hearts and minds would focus on the heavenly qualities within their lives.

Grace Academy class of 2012 graduate James Eldred III explained how he’s been affected “by the godly example of leadership my teachers have set before me,” and how he hopes to follow their example “and succeed in leading God’s people where they need to go.” “Grace Academy has been a place for me to call home,” added Eldred, who plans to be a pastor of music, and will be studying at Baptist Bible College in Florida. “When everything is falling apart outside, here at Grace they have conveyed to me Jeremiah 29:11, ‘God has a plan for me.’” Of his fellow graduates, Everett Community College is the destination for David

Young, Nathaniel Tuttle, Stephan Stauffer, Joycelyn Blue and Sydney Holt, the latter of whom will be majoring in graphic design. Blue plans to transfer to Humboldt State University, while Stauffer expects to pursue his nursing degree after EvCC. Chung Jun Lee and Brandon Thompson are both heading off to the University of Washington, the latter on a full-ride ROTC scholarship. Malynda Clark is going into the U.S. Army, while Brett Soden prepares to enter Seattle Pacific University. Oksana Yerina will be attending the Moody Bible Institute, and Stephanie Zimmer is set to attend the Blanche MacDonald Centre.


ARLINGTON — Highland Christian School’s graduating class of 2012 have credited their successes to their mentors and their shared faith as they prepare to embark upon adulthood. Valedictorian Samantha Schweizer thanked the students’ parents and teachers alike for supporting them throughout their schooling, even as she acknowledged that she and her peers hadn’t always made it easy on them. “We have fought and bickered, laughed and cried, dated and broken up, and through it all, we have grown

up together,” Schweizer told her fellow graduates on June 8. “Looking at you all now, there is not one of you who has not made an impression on my life.” Schweizer quoted the class’ verse — “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity” — before she urged her classmates to “go forth in Christ” and trust in both their religion and in the equality of education that they’ve received at Highland. Salutatorian Esther Brown recalled class landmarks such as all-night study sessions and completing pages of their yearbook, and cited them as examples of how God has given them the strength to overcome life’s obstacles, even when they might be of their own making.

“We are all unique and special in our own ways, but the one thing that we all have in common is our determination,” Brown said “In the last four years, I have come to realize that when our class sets our minds to do something, we will do it.” Pastor Steve Brown, the class advisor for Highland’s class of 2012, noted that the students’ diverse postgraduate plans include a nursing degree for Ted Taft, a structural engineering degree at Washington State University for Clayton Binder, mechanical engineering for Sami Abdallah, training as a dental hygienist for Brown and majoring in history at Whitworth University for Schweizer. “This is a class with a bright future,” Brown said. “Go forth with God’s blessing and grace.”

Loki came to the shelter as a stray, so we're not really sure what he's been up to lately. We know that he's about 11 years young & that he's a handsome orange & white boy. He seems to always have this worried look on his face, even when he's relaxed & just scoping out the scene. We also know that regardless of how he got to the shelter, he deserves to be back in a loving & safe home, with a family who will provide him with the love & care he is looking for.

This breed is a known escape artists, so not only does he need a large fenced in yard (no short fences) but also some smart and active owners who can keep Moose contained and occupied so he won't think of running off. He is patient, friendly, affectionate and are a true friend to the family, but get ready for high energy. A large fenced yard is mandatory because of their activity. They are excellent jogging companions. They live an average of 13-14 years.
