Silvana Fair draws record crowds BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

SILVANA — The 65th year of the Silvana Fair on Saturday, July 28, was the first in more than 40 years to be held without longtime Fair Board President Roy Strotz, but Board Vice President Lynn Pattison doesn’t see the annual event slowing down anytime soon. “The Silvana Fair was bigger than ever this year,” said Pattison, who estimated that the fairgrounds behind the Viking Hall in Silvana drew about 3,000 attendees, from the 9 a.m. opening ceremonies dedicated to Strotz’s memory and the games that followed, to the livestock exhibitions throughout the day that were wrapped up by the “Parade of Champions” shortly before 5 p.m., showcasing all the animals who’d earned the distinction of “Best in Show.” While Silvana firefighters such as Trent Nunemake treated youngsters such as 3-year-old Conner Kinnear of Marysville to turns at spraying the firehouse, the tractor pull made its debut and drew at least a dozen entrants, including Jerry Lewis of Smokey Point, whose John Deere 100 series lawn tractor boasted $1,800 in modifications, and 94-year-old Helen Vickers of Arlington, driving her husband’s Minneapolis-Moline tractor. At the same time, familiar favorites such as the Stanwood Redi-Mix greased pole contest drew aspiring climbers such as 5-year-old Dylan Miller from as SEE SILVANA, PAGE 2

ARLINGTON — The scenario was potentially lifethreatening. Eight sailors from Naval Station Everett were transported from the scene of a toxic chemical spill on base to a portable decontamination tent outside of the Cascade Valley Hospital in Arlington. Fortunately for all involved, the scenario was only a training exercise, named “Reliant Cloud,” whose purpose was to test the emergency response readiness of personnel from Navy Branch Health Clinic

Everett, the city of Everett’s police and fire departments, and the Cascade Valley Hospital on Wednesday, July 25. For the eight enlisted sailors who laughed about being “volun-told” to take part in the exercise, it was educational and even refreshing to be moved through the two sides of the portable decontamination tent, the one side for patients who can still walk on their own, and the other for patients who need to be moved via stretcher. In spite of hospital personnel’s concerns that the

initial blasts of water had been too cold for their first few simulated patients, all of the sailors agreed that the warm water and even the scrubbing brushes had felt pleasant. As many Cascade Valley Hospital personnel as Naval Station Everett sailors were available to run through the exercise on site, and the various nurses and technicians concurred with Tammy LeBoeuf, the radiology technician who supervised the exercise, that it proceeded smoothly enough to encourage them for how SEE TEST, PAGE 2

TEST FROM PAGE 1 they might handle the real thing. “We’re always on standby with Naval Station Everett,” said LeBoeuf, who noted that Cascade Valley Hospital not only stores equipment that’s suited to such situations in emergency preparation trailers, but also within the hospital building itself, which also includes a decontamination shower that’s permanently installed as part of the emergency room. “If this really was a mass incident, our trailers and tent would more than likely be stationed in front of the hospital, rather than in back as they were in this exercise.” LeBoeuf praised her team members for suiting up and scrubbing down their patients not only quickly, but also thoroughly, which is no mean feat when you can’t actually dress yourself. “They made sure one another’s suits were as secure as they would need to be in a real situation,” LeBoeuf said. “You can’t just zip yourself up in these suits, because you also need someone else to tape you in.” In an actual event, decontamination personnel would only be able to remain in

It’s not just one department at the hospital that contributes staff to this team, either.” Of the team members that were assembled on July 25, only two hadn’t previously participated in the quarterly training exercise, although

it was LeBoeuf ’s first time running the show. “We’ve gotten more familiar with the equipment as time has gone on,” said registered nurse Carole Faulkner. “We’re much more organized now,” said Carole Rhinevault. “We were short a few people, but we improvised,” said LPN/OB Tech Ardis Fureby. “This is a really good crew, and these drills are really helpful to the outside community,” said LeBoeuf, who pointed out that chemical decontamination is no mere hypothetical scenario for Cascade Valley Hospital, which treated patients who were accidentally exposed to tear gas in Darrington last year. “The more we do them, the better we’ll be.”

Stanwood’s Gracie Johnson, left, and sister Mary have been raising cows for four years, but July 28 marked their first entries into the Silvana Fair.

SILVANA FROM PAGE 1 far away as Covington. In spite of the fair’s growth over previous years, Arlington rabbit breeder and apprentice judge Autumn Dennistoun noted that this year’s number of rabbit entries was down to five. “Breeding rabbits is a great way to teach kids responsibility and life lessons,” said Dennistoun, a 17-year-old who looks forward to being promoted to a full official judge with the American Rabbit Breeders Association in time for next year’s Silvana Fair. “It’s taught me public speaking skills, since I’ve learned to talk to people I don’t know, and rabbits are my favorite animals forever.” Fellow Arlington native Keyera Riley, 11, has followed in big sister Kiauna’s footsteps by raising Oberhasli milk goats for the past three years. Just as Dennistoun appreciates the unique personalities of the rabbits that

she cares for, so too does Keyera enjoy spending time with her goats, although she acknowledged that they do literally butt heads with each other on occasion, and cleaning out their stalls is a bit of a chore for her. The Rileys weren’t the only sister act to enter livestock in the fair. Stanwood’s Gracie Johnson, 14, and her kid sister Mary, 12, have been raising cows for the past four years, but this year marked their first fair showing. “It’s helping us prepare for future fairs,” said Gracie Johnson, echoing Pattison’s earlier assessment of the Silvana Fair’s value as a learning fair. “Next time, we’ll know to practice everything we do before we come here, from working with the halter to controlling them with the stick. You can’t slack at all, or it’ll show in the ring.” “Your arms get tired really fast,” Mary Johnson agreed. “It’s a really good experience, though.” Like the Johnson sisters,

fellow Stanwood native Brittany Briggs expects to continue working with livestock well into adulthood, while pursuing a career in agriculture. The 17-year-old has raised wool sheep longer than she can recall, but she’s fairly certain that she’s entered at least five Silvana Fairs. “Keeping them clean is the most difficult, because you can’t wash them,” said Briggs, as she instead trimmed the tips of her 7-month-old sheep’s wool, where they had become weathered. “Look at how cute they are, though. I don’t even know why I like sheep. I just really do. Even if I get into another business, I’ll keep raising them as a hobby.” “The Washington State Fair Board judge commented that the Silvana Fair was one of the better small community fairs in the state, a particularly fine compliment since it takes place on only one day a year,” Pattison said.

ARLINGTON — For local residents who have ever wondered how they can begin to brew beer or wine at home, they can look no further than downtown. Down Home Brew Supply is a brand new business on Fifth Street in downtown Arlington that opened on June 1. Owners Mike and Amy Scarsella decided to open their own business selling home brewing supplies when Mike gained interest in the pastime some two years earlier. “If you can bake cookies, you can brew beer,” said Scarsella, who grew up farming and has been growing hops in Arlington for about three years. That experience led him to have an interest in brewing. “I was already a member of the home brewer’s club here in Arlington,” he said. Trading tips and ideas with other local home brewers alerted Scarsella to a pointed need for a supply store in the area. “The nearest ones are in Anacortes and South Everett,” he said. So they

opened their own store. They offer more than 50 specialty grains. “We have four different chocolates, four different barleys, dry malts, liquid malts, everything you need,” said Scarsella. And beer is not the only drink that Scarsella’s customers can try their hands at making at home. “On the wine side, we have all the fruit you need and all the supplies,” said Scarsella, although most of his customers have been interested in home brewing beer. But for those who have had an interest in home brewing but aren’t sure where to start, Down Home Brew Supply has something that will help. “We’ve got the deluxe starter kit with all the brewing supplies for less than $150 dollars,” said Scarsella. Each batch yields five gallons and the brewer can choose which flavor profiles to employ. “You’re brewing something that you actually want to drink,” said Scarsella. His wife, Amy, agreed. “It’s cool how they are all so different and we’re adding more all the time,” she said. “The best beer I’ve ever had is one that [Mike] made

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Thanks for supporting food bank On behalf of the Arlington Community Food Bank we would like to thank the Stillaguamish Tribe, Arlington Hardware & Lumber, city of Arlington, Wal-Mart and the greater Arlington community for their very generous donations to the Food Bank capital building fund. Soon you will see the ground breaking for the new building. We have to vacate our current facility by Jan.1, 2013, so time is of the essence. Our fundraising efforts will not stop with the new building project. We still have increasing numbers of needy families to feed each week and we continue to need your donations of monies and food. Qualifying clients are allowed to receive a three day food allotment, two times per month and we can only handout what we have on hand. Sadly, we have had to cut back on the number of food items each family can receive each time they come to the Food Bank. We are very lucky to live in a community that helps the less fortunate among us. It really does take a village and we appreciate all of you. Thank you, Sue Keezer, President Arlington Community Food Bank

New complaints about coal trains

E

vening news squibs showed Seattle and Edmonds demonstrators complaining about coal trains. Does it take them that long to take notice or are big-city folks just slower to react than our sort of country bumpkins? The oddest part was the focus of their complaint. Coal dust. Concerned parents said they were terrified that children might inhale dust blown from open-hopper cars. They complained that the rail corridor is becoming toxic from coal particulates. Coal producers couldn’t be happier about the coal dust issue because, aside from being bogus, it distracts critics from the larger concerns, that of traffic stoppage. And the even larger issue: combustion. The dust argument is empty. Coal trains from Wyoming are swept free of dust while racing across dry plains before crawling along damp Puget Sound. Dust at the top of loads is blown away before the trains get here, long before Puget Sound’s drizzly convergence zone damps down what might remain. As to dust-stirring speeds, any passenger on the slow route to Vancouver knows that slower coal trains would come in second to a fast horse. The few coal cars it takes to fuel local needs are a minor bother but the endless crossing-blocking trains that fuel Asia’s industries impede fire trucks, ambulances, emergency aid vehicles, police, commercial vehicles, buses, commuters and shoppers. They act as valves that periodically shut down east-west traffic. Coal haulers try to minimize the number of trains by maximizing loads. At 143 tons per car, or about 40,000 pounds per wheel, coal cars punish the roadbeds that carry them —but leave that worry to Warren Buffett, owner of BNSF. Our immediate worry is stoppages, not dust. If the dust argument is debunked, public outrage swings back to blockage of traffic at crossings. This real here-and-now issue gets far more

traction in media blasts than in law. In case after case, rail operators’ right to block traffic is confirmed. Public energy might be better spent attacking the more serious long-term issue of combustion in which coal trains are symbol and substance. We should be asking, how does unfettered burning of fossil fuels affect us? Obviously, the coal is being sent to Asia to be burned. Not good. Since the mid-19th Century, the human race has been combusting every kind of fuel to run factories and energize society, leading to overproduction of greenhouse gases. Recent droughts, flooding, extreme temperatures and crop failures may be linked, at least in part, to combustion. The atmosphere no longer maintains the perfect balance that ensured conditions friendly to plant and animal life. Sulfites from coal-fired industrial plants acidify fresh and salt waters to a point where oysters find it difficult to make shells. Extended periods of triple-digit temperatures render certain parts of the country uninhabitable for all but the hardy. The resultant heat parches forests and grasslands, setting them up for abnormal wildfires that pump still more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, further strengthening the greenhouse effect. And so it goes in an accelerating cycle. What I see when a coal train passes is more combustion and more pollution. Not home-grown pollution but home-grown coal aiding and abetting Chinese polluters. Not our problem? Not if they could keep their pollution at home. Given prevailing air currents, Chinese air pollution affects my

breathing as surely as Fukushima’s tsunami debris decorates Washington’s beaches. Check satellite photos to see the tan plume of Chinese industrial murk flowing eastward to envelop much of America. Label it, Made in China. Control of the situation is being debated on both sides of the Pacific. To their credit, China is aggressively expanding wind and solar resources and is ahead of us on both of those fronts. With Chinese cities choking on smog, the People’s Republic has instituted emission standards for coal that may or may not be enforced. Just as they may or may not be enforced here in the U.S.A. Before condemning China for messing up the atmosphere, we should remember that we out-sourced smokestack industries to them. It sounds a little false that while we enjoy the output of Chinese factories, we condemn the pollution they cause. And it figures that with over four times the U.S. population, China’s growing capacity for polluting will grow. The air we’re breathing was Chinese air a few days ago and there’s nothing we can do about that. The next time you dust window sills, consider that fully 10 percent of the dust originated in China. Likewise, air breathed by Europeans first swept American industries and exhausts. Given that what goes around comes around, individuals, corporations and governments should begin behaving like responsible sharers of the environment. Oregon’s Mount Bachelor is home to an atmospheric research station that analyzes the quality of incoming Asian air. Measurements show elevated levels of toxic mercury and sulfates that acidify fresh and salt waters, all of it the result of combustion. There have to be better ways to power civilization.

Neighbors concerned about sex offender housing

lsalcedo@arlingtontimes.com

MARYSVILLE — When John Mack purchased a home on State Avenue in late May, with the intention of using it to house sex offenders, he was not met with a positive response from neighbors or city officials. Mack, who is the pastor of Arlington’s Holy Ghost Ministries, has made it a personal mission to provide housing for at-risk males, including sex offenders, in his eight Marysville, Everett and Arlington buildings. His most recent project includes the nearly 4,000-square-foot building on State Avenue, located next the home of Michelle Morck. “Words really can’t describe how I feel right now,” said Morck, who after discovering the details of her soon-to-be neighbors, made the decision to move her family from the home they’ve owned for more

than 20 years. “I’m at a loss for words. Our lives are destroyed, they’ve been ripped out from under us,” said Morck. In addition to moving from her home, she said it has been a difficult case for realtors who view the new addition to the neighborhood as a source of devaluation. “We have lost the value of our home. We can’t rent to anyone without telling them who is next door,” she said. The family also chose to close their at-home pastry business, Gracie’s In and Out Pastries. “We had one teenage girl working for us and she was just wonderful, it was her first job and she was great. We had just hired another young girl when we found out,” said Morck, of the news that a sex offender house was moving in. “We just made the decision that we had no choice but to close the business. We just couldn’t risk anything happen-

ing to them.” The Morck family closed their pastry business on June 22, listing the nearby sex offender housing unit as their reason for closing. They also made the decision to leave the home they’ve had for more than two decades. But Mack believes that what he is doing is for the greater good. “When there are a number of these guys living together, they can be accountable for each other’s actions,” said Mack, who noted than in the 10 years he has owned transitional housing units, there has never been a situation where a sex offender has been caught re-offending. Bill Wolfe, of the Department of Corrections Marysville Unit, supported that statement by noting that in the years that Mack has owned homes in the area, he has called the DOC on multiple occasions to report only minor tenant violations. At a Marysville City Council meeting on July 23, more than a dozen Marysville residents, including Morck and Mack, spoke on the issue of group sex offender housing. Several families complained that they were being forced to move because they keep the safety of their children in mind. The plight of those who spoke out against the group home had a sympathetic ear in Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring. “We are very much against the concept of these group houses with multiple sex offenders,” said Nehring. “I am 100 percent sympathetic to those living nearby. We are 100 percent focused on finding a way so that they won’t be there anymore.” Nehring said, adding that a state law

passed in 2006 bars local governments from controlling the location of sex offender residences. “I’m against it, but we’ve looked at it every which way and we can’t do anything about it. Our hands are tied,” said Nehring. “The state law needs to change.” Mack argued that his homes are required to stay in residential neighborhoods. “Because of zoning requirements, the city forces me to be in these neighborhoods rather than an industrial zone. And a lot of these guys

don’t have cars or licenses and so they have to be close to a bus line,” he said. Nehring is determined to find a way to change that. “In a perfect world, there wouldn’t be any sex offenders in our city. That’s unrealistic, but each time you add another into the home, you add another problem for the neighborhood,” he said. “It’s not a matter of if, but when, they re-offend.”

Arlington wins Stilly Puff Cup BY LAUREN SALCEDO lsalcedo@arlingtontimes.com

ARLINGTON — Dozens of football moms suited up on Saturday, July 28, to battle it out for the second annual Stilly Puff Cup, a Powder Puff football game aimed at raising money for youth athletics. For the second year in a row, Arlington Eagle Moms and Stanwood Spartan Moms played a tough game as a fundraiser for youth football leagues in their areas — the Arlington Youth Football Association and Stanwood-Camano Youth Football. “All of our funds raised go to scholarships for kids who can’t afford to play,” said Michelle Williams, an organizer for the Eagle Moms. “Last year we had 22 player scholarships.” Last year, the Eagle Moms raised more than $6,000 in the Stilly Puff Cup game. “This year they are aiming for $10,000,” said Karen Allen, event organizer. The total amount of money raised wasn’t tallied up by press time, according to Jaime Stupey, team captain. “We don’t have all the totals yet, but we had about the same amount of attendance as last year as the gate money was about the same,” she said.

The stands were packed on the Arlington side, with players’ families, friends and locals looking for some Saturday night family fun. Tickets cost $5 per person or $10 for a family. Other sources of fundraising came from concession sales, raffles, a silent auction, family fun day and donations. “Family fun day was new this year, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.,” said Williams. “All that money goes to the AYFA.” The Powder Puff teams also sold advertisements in a program, which was handed out to each person at the gate. Football fun wasn’t the only thing the crowd had to look forward to at the game. Several “cheer dads” dressed in short shorts, tall socks, wigs and pompoms to show their support for moms. “My husband is over there with a pink wig on,” laughed Williams before the game. Kickoff was at 7 p.m. and the teams battled for three hours and 15 minutes, with Arlington winning 8-0 in quadruple overtime. “I’m excited to have our community band together and raise money for kids who can’t afford to play,” said Cathy Binder, chair of the Eagle Mom Powder Puffs. “These kids will learn to contribute to their society and give back into their community.”

“It was a crazy game,” said Stupey. “Both teams certainly came to play. It was a battle of the defenses, there was no offense that night. It was very successful, we raised thousands and thousands of dollars.” Stupey also expressed gratitude

to local businesses, residents and the Stanwood Spartan Moms for helping to make the event a success. “It’s becoming such a huge show of community support,” said Stupey, who noted that almost 50 local businesses donated items for raffles and auctions. “There

was a huge amount of work and dedication by all the players. It was just amazing.” Both teams will battle it out for the Stilly Puff Cup next year. “This has been by far the biggest show of support,” said Stupey. “Hopefully, it’ll just keep getting bigger.”

Stilly Valley heads to regionals BY LAUREN SALCEDO lsalcedo@arlingtontimes.com

ARLINGTON — A successful Stilly Valley Little League season

was made even better when the Stilly Valley Seniors won the state championship on July 22 and set off to play at Western Regionals in

San Bernadino, Calif. on Aug. 1 — the first regional tournament for the league in more than 20 years. “We won the district champi-

onship against Mill Creek and then the state tournament in Mount Vernon,” said coach Gary Tallman. “We ended up losing against Richmond and then beating Redmond 7-1, to get to the championship game, but we had to beat Richmond twice and we did.” The team beat Richmond 7-2 in the first game and 3-1 in the second game, to take the state championship victory. “Tristan Jager pitched extremely well that game,” said Tallman of the first championship game on July 22. “Drew Earnheart pitched the second game and did a great job. We were lucky because we got rained out on Friday, so they gave us all of our pitchers back for Saturday and Sunday.” Their success at the state championship sent them to California for regionals, and also a shot at the Little League World Series. “This is the first time since 1991 that Stilly Valley has been to regionals and it’s really an exciting time,” said Tallman. “We are just going to go

out there and play our best and see how far we can get. Somebody’s got to win this thing, why not us? No matter what happens, I am just so proud of this team.” Part of the team’s success in Mount Vernon can be attributed to community support, said Tallman. “The fans that came out to support us were amazing,” he said. “We’ve been doing fundraisers and all the people who have donated are helping out this team. Everyone is so excited and they are pulling for us to win.” Tallman also noted that the team’s success was due to the coaches dedication. “Jerry Stillings and Gary Wiseman are some of the best coaches around,” he said. “And Lorie Stillings has been the team mom for the entire year. We can’t do any of this without her.” The Stilly Valley Seniors play their first regional game at 6 p.m. on Aug. 1. If they win the tournament, they head to the Little League World Series in Bangor, Maine on Aug. 12-18.

Inc. in Arlington, and has lived in town his whole life, while Nathan and Jillian Hartman returned to their hometown of Arlington because that’s where they wanted to start their own family. Both Nathan and Jillian serve as youth pastors at the Arlington Assembly of God Church. “This has been an amazing experience,” Jillian Hartman said of her care at Cascade Valley Hospital. “All the nurses have been so sweet and knowledgeable and caring, and our doctors have been great. We live so close by that we wanted to come to Cascade.”

ARLINGTON — The National Night Out Against Crime is returning to Arlington on Tuesday, Aug. 7. Arlington’s Night Out Against Crime will run from 5-7 p.m. in a new venue, in the grassy fields just east of the Stillaguamish Athletic Club on 172nd Street NE, which organizers hope will afford the popular annual event enough room to breathe. “Last year we held it in the Food Pavilion parking lot, which was great, but we wanted a little more space,” said Paul Ellis, assistant to the Arlington City Administrator for capital

projects. “It was also important that we site it near the Smokey Point area.” Last year’s Night Out Against Crime in Arlington drew an estimated 400 attendees, with the local clubs of Rotary cooking up hot dogs and Kiwanis providing popcorn. According to Ellis, this year’s event includes the Arlington School District and the Cascade Valley Hospital and Clinics, and promises the return of not only the Arlington Police and Fire departments — complete with fire engines, medic units and a K-9 — but also

ARLINGTON — When little Declan Hartman was born to mom Jillian and dad Nathan in Cascade Valley Hospital at around 8 p.m. on Tuesday, July 24, he was continuing a family tradition that extends across at least four generations. Barely a month more than 30 years before, Jillian Hartman herself (then Jillian Willett) was born on June 25, 1982, also in Cascade Valley Hospital. Nearly three decades before that, Jillian’s father, Guy Willett, was born in Cascade Valley Hospital on May 25, 1956, two years before a new facility was built for the hospital. Almost two decades before that, Guy’s mother, Maridee Willett, was born in the original Cascade Valley Hospital building in 1938. “My mom’s mom moved here when she was only 2 years old,” Guy Willett said. “My dad’s side of the family were pioneers in this area.” While Maridee was not able to stop by and visit her great-grandson in the hospital in person, Declan’s grandparents were there to greet the 8-pound, 20-inch newborn on Wednesday, July 25, as Jillian recuperated comfortably. “He’s been real peaceful,” Jillian Hartman said. “He’s been sleeping good and eating good. We haven’t gotten a ton of sleep lately, but we’re all good,” she laughed. “I was crying, I was so overwhelmed,” Nathan Hartman said. Declan arrived a week and a half early, but Jillian nonetheless remarked upon how big he was and how relatively easy the delivery was for her. “Look at how strong he is,” Jillian told Nathan, as Declan squirmed in her arms. “He’s trying to hold his head up.” Guy Willett admitted that the idea of being a grandparent hadn’t quite sunk in yet, but he agreed that his grandson was “just perfect.” The Willetts and Hartmans acknowledged how unusual it is for four generations of a family to be born at the same hospital, but attributed it to their strong community ties.

I am a sweet girl & waiting for my perfect family to show up and pick me off my feet! I came in as a stray so not much is known about me other than my sweet charm & need for hair brushing. I had mats so some of my fur is missing. Please give me a chance, you will fall right under my spell!

Name: Shania Animal ID: 16755193 Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix Age: 10 Years Gender: Female Color: Black w/Some Graying Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Shania came to the shelter as a stray, so we know nothing of her past. She is looking for a semi-active lifestyle. Labs do well in almost any setting, w/all kinds of people & animals. Labs like Shania love to go on walks & then have a nice cozy bed. Labs are mouthy & need bones & toys to chew on. She has a little bit of hair loss on her back, most likely from allergies, so she'll need to be on a quality diet & flea meds. Shania is sure to be a devoted & loyal companion.

All animals adopted from EAS are neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas. All cats are tested for FIV/FeLV.
