Chamber celebrates Rogers’ return BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — The Greater Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce celebrated the return of one of its most-missed members on Wednesday, July 18, as its Regional Visitor Information Center hosted an evening in honor of Chamber President and CEO Caldie Rogers. Area business owners, elected officials, Naval personnel and representatives of the city of Marysville, the Tulalip Tribes, Snohomish County and the state of Washington attended to

pay tribute to Rogers, and those who couldn’t pass on their well-wishes in person sent their compliments to her. Rogers was joined by her son, Nate Hanson, in extending their thanks to the Chamber as a whole for supporting her as a surrogate family during her extended illness. “My own family had all died by the time I was 32,” Rogers said. “You learn to love God and find a family in your friends. This Chamber’s Board of Directors did not give up on me.” SEE ROGERS, PAGE 2

MARYSVILLE — One thing that both Marysville School District officials and local residents will readily agree on is that at least a couple of the schools’ landscaping is looking rough. Beyond that, some disagreements have cropped up, much like the weeds at Grove Elementary. MSD Superintendent Dr. Larry Nyland identified the schools’ landscaping as but one of many victims of their ongoing money crunch, while Mark Hinricksen, a Marysville resident who lives near Grove Elementary, sees it as a problem that could be resolved by better prioritization on the school district’s part. “We do have and will have consequences and complications that come from the countless and repeated budget cuts,” Nyland said. “I think of this as the consistent disinvestment in schools and many other social services.” Nyland noted that state cuts amount to $2.7 billion, and added that the Marysville School District has borne more than $20 million in

ROGERS FROM PAGE 1 Rogers singled out a number of attendees for special recognition, including Connie Drecke for helping Rogers shower and clean her house when she was too weak to perform those tasks on her own, Kynda Roberts of Creative Hair Design for setting up beauty appointments for her and aiding her in picking up her prescriptions, and Jeanie Kitchens of Naval Station Everett for swinging by for round-theclock visits. “Melissa West came all the way up from Las Vegas,” Rogers said. “Judy Coover, who’s on the Board of the Association of Washington Business, fought the traffic time and again to come up from Burien with food and groceries. When you live alone, you can’t afford not to be able to take care of yourself. When I was down to 89 pounds, I thought the Chamber had bet on a bad horse and that I’d let you all down.” Rogers likewise deemed Bill Scrupps of Scrupps Development “my brother from another family,” whose family had all but adopted her and included her in occasions such as holiday get-togethers. “I knew I was getting better

a couple of months ago when he spent half an hour yelling on my deck about how hard it was to watch the condition I’d been in,” Rogers laughed. Rogers acknowledged how hard it had been for her son to watch her health deteriorate, reminding her audience that “caregivers need as much care as the people they’re caring for,” before she presented a plaque to Chamber Board Chair John Bell, whose inscription literally rewrote the Webster’s Dictionary definition of “hero” to include his name. “He never signed up to carry all of this,” said Rogers, who pointed out that Bell’s birthday went without a party on Tuesday, July 18, which she remedied with a cake that the Chamber had been saving to surprise Bell. “He kept the Chamber moving forward, but he never said to let me go.” “The challenges of directing the operations of the Chamber during Caldie’s absence were exceeded only by my pride in our Board of Directors, whose faith in Caldie’s return and whose support for my decisions were crucial in keeping the Chamber vital, relevant to the business communities of Marysville and Tulalip, and moving in a direction of growth and value for our communities,” said Bell,

“You learn to love God and find a family in your friends. This Chamber’s Board of Directors did not give up on me.” Caldie Rogers, President and CEO Greater Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce who’s already been working with Rogers to ensure that she’s fully informed about all aspects of the Chamber’s activities during her absence. “We had faith that Caldie would come back.” “For the longest while, I couldn’t read, I couldn’t talk and I couldn’t even focus,” said Rogers, who was pleased to be greeted by Chamber Office Administrator Sylvia Johnston, Business Development Representative Maureen DePuy and a number of other “incredible new staff members” who had been brought on board in her absence. “My doctor wishes I wasn’t doing this until after Labor Day, but with your love and support, I’ve got a can-do attitude. We’re about to unveil a slew of new member benefits. This Chamber is here, we’re strong and we’re about to break all records.”

SCHOOLS FROM PAGE 1 budget cuts over the course of the past five years. He added that the district’s prioritization of student success has and will impact the state of its buildings and grounds. “We do our best to maintain our buildings, but do so each year with fewer and fewer dollars,” Nyland said. “This year, the district reduced seven custodians, one maintenance and one grounds person.” Although enough custodians will remain for the 201213 school year to heat the buildings, attend to emergencies, and clean all the health and safety areas, they will not be able to clean every classroom every day. Likewise, although the district’s lawns continue to be mowed on a schedule, Nyland conceded that weeding is done far less frequently. “We have fewer grounds employees and no longer have a summer program to employ youth to help keep up with the weeds,” said Nyland, who pointed out that the district is also using fewer sterilization chemicals. “Add unseasonal rains, and we have a bumper crop of weeds.” “It looks like a meth lab,” Hinricksen said of the Grove Elementary grounds. While Hinricksen regularly drives around town to check out the other schools, aside from his concerns about the lack of maintenance on Totem Middle School’s trees, the bulk of his complaints are reserved for Grove Elementary, whose grounds he not only believes could be better maintained even under current budget conditions, but whose landscaping

designs he has argued were wrongheaded to begin with. “It’s a horrible design,” said Hinricksen, who asserted that the appearance of Grove’s grounds has been poor for the past two years. “You’ve got way too many frou-frou plants that the kids are going to trample. They lost half the landscaping by planting it in the wrong spots for the shade and the sun, and they spent thousands of dollars doing this.” Of particular note to Hinricksen are the “kinnikinnick” ground-cover plants that have died from being covered up by weeds that have grown four to five feet tall in some cases. “They must have paid $5 each for hundreds of them,” Hinricksen said. “Why is this one school in particular being ignored? Grove is only a few years old and we’ve abandoned it already, while the district has built a new $94.5 million high school while claiming poor pockets.” Hinricksen suggested turning the school district’s groundskeeping duties over to private enterprise, which he touted as continuing to meet the challenges of the current economy in ways that he sees the district as falling short. By contrast, Nyland explained that the district has already established a process through which its principals can work with their PTAs to identify and schedule feasible improvement projects, which solicit volunteer labor from the community in exchange for the district supplying certain amounts of supplies and supervision. Kimberly DeLap has taken part in five community cleanups of Allen Creek Elementary, and wouldn’t mind seeing all of the dis-

“We have fewer grounds employees and no longer have a summer program to employ youth to help keep up with the weeds.” Larry Nyland Superintendent Marysville School District trict’s schools eventually following suit. “You can argue that the school district should have fixed this stuff,” DeLap said. “I can certainly understand the schools’ neighbors who are annoyed by their state of disrepair. My husband has that perspective. But I’d rather roll up my sleeves and try to solve the problem myself.” DeLap echoed Nyland’s point that the key shortfall in such projects is a lack of manpower, since the district is often able to provide many of the necessary materials. She encouraged would-be volunteers to contact Marysville School District Grounds Maintenance Supervisor Keith Stefanson as their first step, since the ensuing process requires them to fill out the proper forms and receive sign-offs from the labor unions to conduct the work. “Maybe the sense that the district isn’t spending its money properly is why people are reticent to vote for bonds and levies,” DeLap said. “But when students see adults taking care of their schools, whether it’s through community cleanups or even just picking up trash outside during lunch, they think twice about how they treat their own schools.”

Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber presents barbecue cook-off

SMOKEY POINT — The Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce will be raising funds by staging a barbecue cook-off later this summer, before their winetasting early in the fall. While the Chamber has often concentrated on a more select number of larger fundraisers, Chamber Managing Director Mary Jane Harman explained that the Chamber has opted to sponsor more events of a smaller nature throughout the year, with the “Old Fashioned Fourth” serving as the first such fundraising event. The Whidbey Island Bank will sponsor and serve as the site for the Aug. 18-19 Smokey Point Barbecue Cook-Off and Marketplace. The barbecue cookoff will only take place on Saturday, Aug. 18, while the marketplace will cover both Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 18-19. The parking lot of the Whidbey Island Bank will host the barbecue cook-off, while the Arlington WalMart will host the marketplace just past the driveway leading to the store on 43rd Avenue, which runs in front of the Wal-Mart, down the entire length of the parking lot and beyond. Both activities are located conveniently close to the Chamber’s offices at 4126-B 172nd St. NE in Smokey Point. “Our hope is to have 10 separate contestants or teams, and we will be using the Pacific Northwest Barbecue Association rules,

although we’ll be relaxing them a bit for this first year,” Harman said. “If it’s a hit with the public, we will apply to hold a ‘sanctioned’ cook-off next year, with the strict rules and regulations required by the association.” Barbecue bites will be available to the public for a cost from the contestants, and the first place prize is set to be $200. “With any luck, we might be able to get a sponsor to help us up the prizes this year,” Harman said. “After all, Smokey Point got its name from barbecue smoke. Eric and Pearl Shurstad opened a restaurant on the corner of 172nd Street and Smokey Point Boulevard. Their outdoor barbecue was named the Smokey Point Cafe after the plume of smoke it generated.” Harman praised Arlington Wal-Mart General Manager Fritz Fittinger for his generosity in supplying space for entrepreneurs and vendors to market their wares and services. “We also plan to have music and lots of fun,” Harman said. “We’ll have either a hot dog vendor or another food vendor, other than barbecue, and either ice cream or Sno-Cone concessions for the marketplace itself.” Harman encouraged prospective barbecue chefs and marketplace participants to contact the Chamber about entering the cookoff or renting a booth site.



“If it’s a hit with the public, we will apply to hold a ‘sanctioned’ cook-off next year, with the strict rules and regulations required by the association.” Mary Jane Harman Chamber Managing Director Harman can be reached at the Chamber by phone at 360-659-5453 or via email at, while event chair Debbie Whitis can be called at 425508-0435. On Saturday, Sept. 8, the Chamber will be heading to the Dusty Cellars Winery on Camano Island to conduct their fall soiree, a private party of up to 50 people who will gather to socialize rather than fundraise for a change. “There will be wine, music, heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine-tasting and a beautiful waterfront sunset,” Harman said. “No auctions, raffles or requests for donations.” The evening will run from 6-9 p.m. and will cost $35 per person. Tickets will need to be purchased in advance for the headcount. Call the Chamber’s offices at 360-659-5453 or log onto www.arling and click on “Events” for more information.

Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Anthony Kubin, Jr, son of Judy Johnson of Marysville, Wash. and Joe Kubin, of Everett, Wash., and fellow sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN 65) formed a Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions (CSADD) committee. CSADD is a peer-to-peer mentoring program geared toward assisting Sailors in making positive decisions in all areas of their lives. The program was originally created for those in ROTC, JROTC and similar programs. However, it quickly spread throughout the Navy and is now a resource for all Sailors. Kubin is a 2007 graduate of Cascade High School of Everett, Wash.

Christopher P. Gossett Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Christopher P. Gossett, son of Shawna and Brett Gossett of Marysville, Wash., and sailors from the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) volunteered to assist in the Special

Olympics Washington (SOWA) competition at the Mount Tahoma High School in Tacoma, Wash. The annual Southwest Spring Games event kicked off with a track and field competition, where Sailors supported the participating athletes by guiding and cheering them to the finish line. Volunteers are often the biggest contributors to the manpower requirements to put on events like this. Throughout the sporting events, sailors were spread along the football and track field, filling in as timekeepers, award presenters, data entry personnel, announcers and judges. Established in 1976, SOWA is a non-profit, volunteerrun organization. The Special Olympics are open for participaton by disabled athletes ages eight and older. The Regional, three-day event has been hosted at Mount Tahoma High School for the last five years. All four regions in the state hold similar events and participants who place at the regional competition will go onto the state competition. Gossett is a 2002 graduate of Arlington High School of Arlington, Wash. and joined the Navy in October 2002.

IN OUR VIEW Don’t miss upcoming community events


lthough the biggest events of the summer — the Marysville Strawberry SCOTT FRANK Festival and the Arlington Fourth MANAGING of July Festival and Fly-In — are EDITOR behind us, there are still several community events in the coming weeks that shouldn’t be missed. For more than a quarter of a century the merchants of downtown Marysville have filled Third Street with crafters and vendors of all types during its annual Homegrown Festival. Started in 1986 with just 30 vendors, the event hosted by the Downtown Marysville Merchants’ Association now has more than 100 vendors and features a wide variety of music and other events. The 27th Annual Homegrown Festival runs from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 10, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 11, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 12.

With something for everyone in the family, Homegrown shouldn’t be missed. With a history almost as long as Homegrown’s, the 23rd Annual Stillaguamish Festival of the River and Pow Wow is set for Aug. 10-12 at River Meadows County Park, 20416 Jordon Rd., Arlington. The Festival of the River, which attracted more that 14,000 people last year, features a variety of activities for the entire family. Some of the events include live music, raptors on display, a Pow Wow, a 5K fun run, a traditional salmon bake, children’s storytelling, interpretive salmon habitat tours along the river and forest edge, environmental and wellness exhibits, Pacific Science Center show, Stillaguamish cultural exhibit, logging show and much more. For more information about the 2012 Stillaguamish Festival of the River go to So mark you calendar and plan on attending these great community events. And while you’re there, be sure to say thanks to members of the Downtown Marysville Merchants’ Association or the Stillaguamish Tribe for their efforts in making these wonderful events happen every year.

First Stewards have much to teach


ll of the pollution that has been — and continues to be — pumped into our air is returning to haunt us at a speed no one ever thought possible. Everywhere there are signs that our environment is out of balance. Oysters in Willapa Bay — one of the largest shellfish producing areas in the United States — have been unable to successfully reproduce for the last eight years. Scientists say ocean acidification is the problem. It’s killing baby oysters by preventing their shells from developing. The chemistry of the ocean is changing because it is absorbing too much carbon dioxide, much of it coming from the gas we burn in our cars. It’s not just oysters that are being affected. All types of shellfish are at risk, including the tiny shrimp called krill that salmon eat. That means the entire ocean food web is in danger, and we are too, because we are all part of that web. Most of the carbon dioxide we produce stays in the air, driving massive climate changes that bear down on us more every day. Our glaciers are disappearing fast, and along with them the supply of cool water that salmon depend on. Meanwhile, sea levels are rising as the polar ice sheets melt.


BILLY FRANK, JR. All of these topics and more were on the agenda for the inaugural First Stewards symposium, held July 17-20 in Washington, D.C. It’s a national event unlike any other that examined the impact of our changing environment on native coastal cultures from across the country, including U.S. Pacific islander communities. The Hoh, Makah and Quileute tribes and the Quinault Indian Nation created the symposium because indigenous coastal people are among the first affected by our changing environment. Hundreds of native leaders and climate scientists will join policymakers and non-government organizations for the groundbreaking discussion at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian. Indian people have been adapting to a changing environment for centuries. We had to adapt or die, and we have gained much traditional knowledge along the way. The symposium can help communities across

the nation by sharing the ways native people have adapted. Our knowledge can be woven with good science to meet the serious environmental challenges facing all of us. We have always lived here and we always will. Because we know our natural systems better than anyone else, we are the first to know when things change. Our traditional knowledge combines the heart and the mind and comes from our place-based way of life. It has been gathered over the centuries through our everyday lives and shared through our songs, stories and ceremonies. Just as our cultures are placebased, so are our treaty rights. When fishing is poor in our home waters we can’t just pick up and move to another part of the state where fishing might be better. We must stay where we are and make things better in that place. And that’s what we do. We all need to deal with these environmental changes because they are only going to become more challenging in the future. We must face these challenges together, because in the end, we are all in the same canoe.

Billy Frank Jr. is the Chairman of the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission.

Ballots, local voters’ pamphlets mailed for Aug. 7 primary

New owners take the helm at Arlington Spirits BY LAUREN SALCEDO

ARLINGTON — With the June 1 privatization of previously state-run liquor stores, the future of the trade is not without uncertainty. Thousands of stores closed, grocery and department stores began selling spirits and in some towns, liquor stores became a thing of the past. In Arlington, however, residents can still shop at their neighborhood liquor store Arlington Spirits and Convenience, which was purchased and opened for business on June 1 by Scott Cho. With the change in ownership, customers can expect a wider range of selection of liquor, as well as a much larger wine selection and

convenience store items such as soda and snacks. “Right now we’ve really started building the wine selection,” said Angela Rifner, store manager. “We’ve got more than 100 different bottles. We also carry a lot of Washington wines and some from local wineries who haven’t sold much retail before.” Arlington Spirits and Convenience offers a multitude of brands and flavors of liquor as well, which they say isn’t available at most of the larger grocery stores. “They only carry a few flavors of Pinnacle, Smirnoff and Burnett’s. But people really like the flavors and we carry a lot more,” said Rifner. They are also offering mini bottles and pints and are

keeping the prices visible. “We include both taxes on the tickets so what you see is what you pay,” said Rifner. “Between my store and the grocery store, the big difference is that we have a lot more items,” said Cho. Customers are already giving back a positive response. “There are a couple of reasons why I shop here. I want my tax dollars to be spent locally versus the distributors out of state. Also, they step up and provide a service by filling out my order for me,” said Barbara Jones, owner of White Horse Saloon. “The price has some effect, but I would actually spend more to buy locally.” For more information on Arlington Spirits and Convenience call 360-4353942.

Volunteers pitch in to help women’s shelter


EVERETT — The Everett Gospel Mission Women and Children’s Shelter received some helping hands from the employees of the Smokey Point branch of Lowe’s, along with fellow volunteers from six other Lowe’s stores on Thursday, July 19. Five to six employees from each of the seven Lowe’s stores lent their sweat and expertise, in addition to their appliances, to the cause of refurbishing four of the kitchens at the shelter. Mike Mogollon, human resources manager for the

Smokey Point Lowe’s store, explained that the shelter’s kitchen makeovers were part of the Lowe’s Heroes program. “We’ve done projects for an elementary school in Skagit and a food bank in Mount Vernon,” Mogollon said. “We support the communities we live and work in.” Mogollon explained that Lowe’s Heroes projects are chosen by votes of store employees based on their impact in the community. “This has as much impact as anything beside the school that we’ve worked on,” Mogollon said.

Lowe’s employee Caitlinn Slater works in one of the kitchens at the Everett Gospel Mission Women and Children’s Shelter on July 19.

CEO Sylvia Anderson noted that the Women and Children’s Shelter currently accommodates 69 residents, 20 of them children. Bellevue Lowe’s Human Resources Manager Jim Wilde estimated that the dollar value of the appliances and materials given to the shelter totals $20,000 in refrigerators, microwave ovens, gas ranges, dishwashers, sinks, cabinet doors, fresh coats of paint and hanging flower baskets. Smokey Point Lowe’s delivery driver Michael Gonzales has also fixed up YMCAs and nursing homes through the Lowe’s Heroes program, and considers it a cinch to install appliances for other people by now. “It’s not much of a challenge,” Gonzales said. “I’ve always loved helping out others.” Smokey Point Lowe’s cashier Ali Ware volunteered for her first Lowe’s Heroes project with the Everett Gospel Mission Women and Children’s Shelter, and described it as an exhilarating rush. “We’re trying to get so much done in just a few hours,” said Ware, in the midst of working on sinks and cabinets in the shelter’s kitchens. “Fortunately, when you’re working as part of a really big group, it goes kind of fast. I’ll be excited

Smokey Point Family Dentistry

and relieved to get this all done.” Dan Stivala, another delivery driver for the Smokey Point Lowe’s, stuck to his specialty by transporting and rolling out appliances from his truck. It was his first Lowe’s Heroes project, but far from his first stint as a volunteer. “Doing this for a day is like taking a break from work,” said Stivala, a retired veteran who served as a chaplain’s assistant in the military. “It’s good to get engaged in the community. I wish these ladies all the best.” Annette Cooper is one of those “ladies,” and for her, the feeling is mutual, as she expressed her gratitude to the Lowe’s volunteers for pitching in on behalf of the shelter that has given her a second chance. “I’ve been fortunate to find people who will help me on a path forward, not backward,” said Cooper, who’s used the contacts she’s made through the shelter to enroll in grief counseling to help her deal with the deaths of loved ones, as well as in classes to obtain her GED,

United Way hosts Volunteer Appreciation Night

EVERETT — For more than a dozen years, United Way of Snohomish County has hosted Volunteer Appreciation Night at the Everett AquaSox. This year’s event, featuring free tickets to all volunteers in Snohomish County and their families, will be held on Monday, Aug. 6, starting at 6:40

p.m. in the Everett Memorial Stadium, located at 3900 Broadway in Everett. The organization will also present the winner of this year’s Roger Bouck Award for Volunteerism in Action just before the first pitch against the Boise Hawks. “Snohomish County has a very

generous spirit,” said Dennis G. Smith, president and CEO of United Way of Snohomish County. “We are thrilled to once again offer a tangible ‘thank you’ to all of our county’s volunteers — not just the ones who work with United Way — and to recognize one of this year’s most outstanding volunteers



in Snohomish County.” The award recognizes an individual or organization that demonstrates visible support for volunteerism, shows results achieved in promoting volunteerism, mobilizes volunteers or increases the community’s ability to mobilize and engage volunteers, and has a community-wide focus.


Any Snohomish County resident who volunteered with any organization in any capacity is eligible for free tickets for themselves and their families. To reserve tickets, please email or call 425-374-5530. The event is co-sponsored by the Everett AquaSox.

Kids learn the basics at Ultimate Basketball Camp BY LAUREN SALCEDO

MARYSVILLE — The Ultimate Basketball Camp, hosted by the Marysville Parks and Recreation Department, was taught by players of a new local basketball team, the Washington Sabers, July 16-19. “This is my second year coaching this camp,” said Jason Hicks, a player for the Sabers. “I love teaching kids and sharing my knowledge of the game.” Kids who signed up for the camp were taught the fundamentals of the game to start. “It’s pretty much the basics like what a triple threat is, shooting, passing, dribbling, ball handling, keeping your head up, just general techniques for defense. We do a lot of games and we want to teach them a lot in the little time we have, so we practice repetition and we do a lot of drills.” Quantez Gurley, the manager for the Washington Sabers and former Parks and Recreation coach, brought in his players as coaches for the week. “This is our first year doing this camp,” said Gurley. “I’ve been

coaching for Marysville Parks and Recreation for years and my son has been playing in Marysville. I love this community so I wanted to give back.” “Quantez Gurley has coached his son, niece and nephew in the Parks league,” said Dave Hall, athletic director for Parks and Recreation. “He started up this team, we got to talking and he agreed to bring in the players to offer a higher level of expertise. All of those guys have played college basketball.” On Monday, the kids learned the basics. “They learned everything on the first day. We’ve been focusing on the basic fundamentals of basketball so that they can perfect their craft,” said Gurley. On Tuesday the topic was defense and on Wednesday it was offense. “On Thursday we have a review and do a tournament so they can use everything they’ve learned.” The camp has received very positive responses from both campers and parents. “We’re keeping them busy, you know. Every 15 or 20 minutes there’s a review to see how they are responding.” Courtney Ball was a camper this

year, and signed up to review the skills she has already learned. “This is my eighth year playing basketball,” said Ball, 11. “I was on my school team last year and I’m trying out next year. I am trying to learn more defense.” Ball said she likes the coaches that the camp offered. “They were really helpful. They will have you go over it some more until you get it right.” Although this is the first year that the Sabers have hosted the camp, they are already planning for another. “We would love to come back and coach this camp again,” said Gurley. The Washington Sabers are a new semi-professional team started by Gurley. The team begins playing games in Everett next spring. “There is really a lack of basketball presence in this area,” said Gurley. “We are trying to give the community something to look forward to that is cost effective.” Gurley said that ticket prices should run between $5-$10 although nothing is completely decided at this point. He also hopes to offer military discounts. “We’re going to do a lot of stuff for the community,” he said.

Cougar Mamas battle for 12-0 victory BY LAUREN SALCEDO

MARYSVILLE – The stadium at Marysville-Pilchuck High School was packed with fans of all ages as the evening of Friday, July 20, brought two football teams face to face for their third annual game to support youth athletics. The Lakewood Cougar Mamas

and the Marysville Charging Tomamamas slipped on their jerseys and helmets in a well-practiced battle to raise money for the Lakewood Youth Football Athletic Association and the Marysville Youth Football League. As their names might suggest, the Cougar Mamas and the Charging Tomamamas aren’t ordinary foot-

ball teams — they are Powder Puff football teams made up of mothers of local football players. “I will tell you that I give amazing kudos to Marysville, they came out so much harder than last year and I was nervous because I thought, ‘I’m not going to lose,’” said Dawn Taylor, an event organizer and Cougar Mamas player. In the end,

the Cougar Mamas emerged victorious with a final score of 12-0. “I know without a doubt that a number of our players said they felt like they’d been run over. They are sore, bruised, battered and totally excited to do it again next year. It’s really a great group of ladies.” This year, the Powder Puff football game raised a grand total of more than $13,000 for youth athletics — roughly $5,000 for Marysville and $8,100 for Lakewood. “We should get some money trickling in for the next few days,” said Taylor. In addition to selling tickets and concessions in order to raise money, the teams also hosted raffles with a number of prizes going out to those in the winning seats. Event organizers also built a program for every attendee and sold advertisements as another way of raising money. Last year the group raised a approximately $9,000 after expenses, which was donated to the two athletic organizations. Thousands were in attendance as the women battled it out on a bright July evening. But only one team could win. “This is my first one of these games,” said Angela Diggs, a spectator. “I read about it and thought it would be a great place to bring the kids on a Friday night and

it’s great. All the competition and yet there’s still camaraderie with everyone.” An increase in concession sales from last year led Taylor to believe that there was an increase in attendance as well. “We made more money on game night this year,” she said. The program, which was given to everyone at the gate, offered both advertisements for locally owned businesses as well as personal message ads to players. Taylor wanted to thank the community that attended the game as well as businesses that supported it. “I want to thank the community. The support they give us is so amazing. Without people coming to support us and businesses helping their community we wouldn’t raise any money at all, so I just want to thank them.” Overall, the game, competition and fundraising were successes for both sides of the field. “It was really successful and just a great, great game,” said Taylor. “We bought so much gear because of last year’s game and this will help replenish us,” said Cindie Botsford, of the Charging Tomamamas. “It’s just amazing. It’s going to help a lot of kids with scholarships and new gear. It’s truly amazing.”

Fundraising continues for ‘3 day for the Cure’

MARYSVILLE — While the second annual open house and car show at the Kumon Math & Reading Center of Marysville on Saturday, July 21, attracted a slightly sparser crowd than last year’s inaugural event, the event’s organizers were hardly discouraged. While Gwen Lewis, owner of the Marysville Kumon branch, had intended for the first car show to reintroduce their business to the community after its move last year, her son and coworker at the Marysville branch, Ivan Lewis, noted that the event was also meant to help raise funds for the Susan G. Komen “3 Day for the Cure” breast cancer research fundrais-

ing walk this fall. Ivan and his wife Amanda will once again be taking part in the “3 Day for the Cure” in Seattle, this time with five people on their team, “The Turnouts,” as opposed to the three they had last year. While many of the hot dogs they were ready to cook up on the grill that day went uneaten, they plan on using those for their next “3 Day for the Cure” fundraiser at Fenders and Fins, the co-sponsors of the last two years of open houses and car shows at Kumon. Amanda’s father, John Carson, owns Fenders and Fins. “Besides, what else were we going to be doing on a Saturday?” Ivan Lewis said July 21, as he cooked up hot dogs for those who did

enter cars in the show. “I was actually worried about the weather, with the way it’s been going lately, but when I woke up this morning, I was like, ‘Aw, yeah!’ We had so many people calling us up this past week, too, asking us when they should show up and how they would register.” One classic car owner who made the trek was H.C. “Kit” Carson, who gained his nickname in the U.S. Air Force. Carson acquired his 1965 Plymouth Valiant Signet 12 years ago in Sacramento, Calif., as a fixer-upper for his wife. “It’s got a Slant-6 engine as opposed to a V-8, so it’s economical,” Carson said. “It gets 24 miles per gallon going down the highway at legal speed.” At the same time, Carson is hardly a strict utilitarian about his automobiles, since one of the features he’s quick to point out about his rig is its distinctive “California Gold” paint job. “I like coming to car shows,” Carson said. “I like meeting other car guys, even though not that many other folks showed up today.” Looking ahead, the Lewises believe their “3 Day for the Cure” fundraising should ultimately be able to meet their goal of $11,500 this year, since their total take of $7,300 for last year

exceeded their 2011 fundraising goal of only $6,900. To pitch in on behalf

Volunteers help food bank Scrub-A-Mutt in pest inspections as is required at their building. “We do a really big inspection every month and smaller inspections on a weekly basis.” Fittinger is proud of the work that he does volunteering through Wal-Mart. “Growing up, I was an Eagle Scout and I joined every club in school. I get a personal satisfaction from helping out organizations in the community that need it.” Lewis agreed. “It’s a way to give back to the community,” he said. “Wal-Mart supports me and my family and it has for 15 years. I believe in Wal-Mart’s values.” Lewis explained that the company offers $5,000 in donations for every cause that each store donates 250 volunteer hours to help. Once WalMart employees have volunteered 250 hours of their time to the Arlington Food Bank, the Wal-Mart company will donate $5,000 to the food bank. The local WalMart branch can complete five of those volunteer events each year, and has already completed three, including the recent Arlington Relay for Life event. “Right now we are looking for two other places to put our efforts and energy,” said Lewis. Fittinger noted that the store has worked with a youth golf program called First Tee, and is planning on partnering with the Arlington School District in the fall. “Wal-Mart has a program called ‘Volunteerism Always


ARLINGTON — The Arlington Food Bank received welcome visitors on July 18, when a number of Arlington Wal-Mart employees came out to do a mass cleanup of the food bank facility. “What a great asset to Arlington, what a great store,” said Terry Allen, a food bank volunteer. “If it wasn’t for Wal-Mart we wouldn’t have any meat to give away. They buy extra to be able to give back to the community. We’d be hurting without them.” A group of more than a dozen local employees volunteered their time to do a mass cleanup of the food bank. “These folks are coming in to clean the building — inside and out,” said Allen. “I just like to help the community,” said Bridget Cullette. “It’s been great. It gives you a good feeling that you’re helping out.” The group washed windows, vacuumed, swept, weeded, dusted and more. Fritz Fittinger, the manager of the Arlington Wal-Mart, said that there is another reason to keep things clean at the food bank. “This is our first cleanup effort and we are really focusing on pest prevention,” said Fittinger. “That’s the biggest thing, cleaning up crumbs and weeds and any pest harborage.” Fittinger and assistant manager Bob Lewis have been extensively trained

Allen, who also noted that Wal-Mart donates between 2,500 and 4,000 pounds of food a week. “It’s really an awesome thing.” The Arlington Food Bank is open on Tuesday evenings and Friday afternoons. For more information call the food bank at 360-435-1631.

MARYSVILLE — ScrubA-Mutt is returning for its fifth annual fundraising dog wash on Saturday, Aug. 18, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The dog wash will take place at the Strawberry Fields Athletic Park, located at 6100 152nd St. NE in Marysville. Suggested donations for dog washes are $5 for small dogs and $10 for large dogs. Groomers and vet techs will be doing nail trims for suggested donations of $5 per dog. The first 300 dogs washed will receive “doggie goodie bags” with treats and gifts. In addition to the dog washing, the event will host vendor booths with dogthemed businesses and a wide array of dog rescue groups, including Northwest German Shepherd Rescue, Basset Hound Rescue, Old Dog Haven, ARF and NOAH. There will be three demonstrations this year; the K-9 Agility Group at 11 a.m., “Meet the Marysville K-9” at 1 p.m. and the Snohomish County Sheriff ’s Department K-9 at 2:30 p.m. “Five years, wow,” said Jennifer Ward, co-director of Scrub-A-Mutt. “When Elizabeth and I had lunch and talked about doing a little fundraiser, I don’t think either of us imagined where we would be after five years.” At Scrub-A-Mutt’s had their first event in 2008, they washed 25 dogs. Last year, that number shot up to more than 260 dogs. Scrub-A-Mutt primarily

raises money for three local dog rescue organizations; Old Dog Haven, NOAH and the Everett Animal Shelter. Additional rescue groups do receive donations based on the amount of money raised at the event. Old Dog Haven is a nonprofit dog rescue group in Arlington that aims to provide loving and safe homes for abandoned senior dogs. Their website and outreach program finds “forever homes” for dogs seven years or older. NOAH is the Animal Adoption Center located in Stanwood that works toward stopping the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable dogs and cats, and has a strong spay and neuter program. They partner with local shelters, providing pets a second chance for a home. The Everett Animal Shelter and ARF (Animal Rescue Foundation) care for lost or unwanted pets from most of Snohomish County. Scrub-A-Mutt would like to remind dog owners to keep their pets on leashes at all times and to remember that a well-socialized, wellbehaved dog is a pleasure to wash. Visit their website at www.scrub-a-mutt. org for a map to the event and a complete guide of the day’s activities. Find them on Facebook at for updates. For more information, call Jennifer Ward at 360-6599626.

She is going to need a home with only one or two adults as she likes a nice, quiet home where she can rest, relax and enjoy peace.

Silvana Fair returns July 28, honors Roy Strotz

SILVANA — While Saturday, July 28, will mark the Silvana Community Fair’s 65th year, it will also be the first Silvana Fair in more than 40 years to be held without longtime Fair Board President Roy Strotz, who passed

away on Feb. 8 of this year. Silvana Fair Board Vice President Lynn Pattison explained that this year’s Fair is dedicated to Strotz’s memory. “Roy was so involved with the Fair that it’s taking a handful of people to do what he once did on his own,” said Pattison, who pointed out that the Silvana Fair

is able to offer free admission and parking because of its all-volunteer staff and annual auction in March, the latter of which funds the Fair’s trophies, ribbons and improvements. Pattison noted that the Silvana Fair marks the start of fair season in the Pacific Northwest, since it always takes place on the last

them while still enjoying themselves. “Everyone who goes to the fair is sure to learn something about farm life and rural activities,” Pattison said. “People love to see their favorite exhibits, and there’s always something new to see and See SILVANA, PAGE 19

SILVANA FROM PAGE 18 talk about.” While the tractor pull is new to the Fair this year, the Parade of Champions will mark its third year at the Fair, showcasing the “Best in Shows” in the livestock department. While the animal exhibits are limited to youth only, anyone can enter their handiwork or crafts in the Fair, whose premium book can be found online at and lists the days and times that exhibits need to be entered.

All entries are judged by the Danish system, which means that they’re competing against a set standard of perfection rather than each other. Therefore, several blue ribbons may be awarded in each class, and the one that is closest to the standard of perfection in its class will usually be awarded a special ribbon or trophy. Youths aged 6-19 will also receive premium money for their entries. “Perhaps the most unique aspect of the Silvana Fair is that it lasts only one day, and then, like Brigadoon, it disappears for another year,” Pattison said. “Its amazing disappearing act

is helped by the many community volunteers who put in hundreds of hours of their own time to make a successful Fair for the community youth.” While Strotz’s absence has prompted serveral Silvana Fair Board members to step up into new responsibilities, Pattison hopes the sun will continue to play its traditional role. “For nearly all of its 65 year history, the weather has been beautiful on Fair day, and we hope this year is no exception,” Pattison said. “As Roy said, ‘The sun always shines on the Silvana Fair.’”
