Hibulb Cultural Center fetes first anniversary BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

TULALIP — The Hibulb Cultural Center marked its first-year anniversary during the weekend of Aug. 17-19 by serving as the site for storytellers, craftmakers, gardeners and film screenings for three days. While Tulalip Tribal member James Madison covered Coast Salish painting on Saturday, Aug. 18, the afternoon of Sunday, Aug. 19, saw Cy and Tim Williams demonstrating chainsawcarving before Steve Madison led a Pacific Northwest drawing workshop. On the morning of Aug. 18, Hibulb Cultural Center Director Hank Gobin led the official opening program for the event, during which Tulalip Tribal elder David Spencer sang a prayer, and

Tulalip Tribal Secretary Glen Gobin and Chair Mel Sheldon Jr. shared their thoughts on the significance of the Hibulb Cultural Center’s existence. “It seems like just yesterday since it opened, but it also seems like it was years ago, since it was planned for so many years,” Glen Gobin said. “Our culture is what sustains and keeps us strong as we go forward. Without it, we drift like leaves in the wind. This facility collects the teachings of our elders, shares them and passes them on.” Glen Gobin acknowledged that the Tulalip Tribes traditionally passed on their history through word-of-mouth and shared experiences, but touted the Hibulb Cultural Center as another avenue of preserving that ancestral knowlSEE HIBULB, PAGE 11

MARYSVILLE — Every dog at the Strawberry Fields Athletic Park had its day, for the fifth year in a row, as the annual Scruba-Mutt fundraiser returned to the site with familiar favorites and new frills on Saturday, Aug. 18. Arlington’s Stacie Ventura and her 3-yearold Belgian sheepdog Felan were among the dogs and their owners who got a workout on the agility course that had been set up on the soccer fields. “He’s a young dog, so it can be hard to keep him focused,” Ventura said of Felan, with whom she’s been competing in such courses for two years. “It’s been rewarding to see him mature and improve, though. He’s gotten more consistent in his runs, and working together as a team gives us bonding experiences.” Judy Marquardt supervised more than 20 dogs and their owners as they made their way through the hurdles, hoops and other obstacles of the agility course set up by her husband Michael. “In the baskets they’ve handed out to dog

down,” Bill Woche said. Kim Daily of the Lake Stevens K9 Academy and Eric Pramhus of PAWS were also Scrub-a-Mutt first-timers, but they had help in hosing down the dogs from Dr. Doug Yearout of the All Animal and Bird Clinic in Lake Stevens, for whom such tasks are old hat. “Don’t get water in their ears or soap in their eyes, don’t spray too hard on their privates, and offer them lots of reassurance,” Yearout advised would-be dog-washers. “There’s a lot of other dogs out here and strange hands touching them, so especially since some of them hate the water anyway, it can get stressful.” “Safety is our first priority,” agreed Dr. Renee Gray of the Lake Stevens Animal

Hospital, as she and her volunteers clipped the nails of a number of occasionally skittish dogs. “It’s a totally spastic situation here, with all sorts of smells and sights that aren’t normal for these dogs. We read their body language to see how much anxiety they’ll have in their reactions. Compared to that, getting the perfect pedicure is not as important,” she laughed. Pramhus praised Scruba-Mutt for supporting Old Dog Haven, a nonprofit dog rescue group in Arlington that aims to provide loving and safe homes for abandoned senior dogs. “A lot of people don’t realize that dogs are a forever commitment,” Pramhus said. “In my volunteer work at PAWS, I see that the old dogs stay with us longer because they’re not as adoptable.” Marysville dog owners such as Barbara Arocha and Peggy Langan likewise had nothing but kind words for Scrub-a-Mutt. “I’m surprised by how well-attended this is,” said Langan, who brought her 5-year-old rescue dog Bitsy for the first time this year. “It’s a great program,” said Arocha, who brought her 2-year-old Leo yet again to the event. “We’ve been coming since he was just a few months old. I like to support this park, and it helps raise awareness of pets in need. Leo likes the free treats,” she laughed.


If you are like most people, you have been on a quest since the day you were born. Deep down inside, you sense there must be more to life than what you can touch, feel, hear or see. While our nation’s politicians argue and posture about problems in the economy and threats overseas, the bigger questions in life are overshadowed! For 22 years Harvest Crusades has been invited to bring the gospel into cities around the world. This year Harvest Ministries has expanded the outreach boundaries to all across the nation. Currently, there are over 1600 host sites participating in the historical one-day Harvest America event. Streamed in live from the Harvest Crusade in Anaheim, California, Pastor Greg Laurie will be looking at the most important questions in life and then looking to the one Person in all of history who has provided answers --answers that have satisfied the souls of millions! We at Calvary Chapel Marysville would like to extend an invitation for you to join us on August 26th for Harvest America. This is a free event and all are invited. Starting at 3:00pm, the afternoon will include Bar-B-Q, live music and a live stream presentation by Greg Laurie.

It builds confidence for not only the dogs, but their human handlers as well.” Just a short distance away on the same field, volunteers from throughout Snohomish County were making sure Scrub-

a-Mutt lived up to its name, by washing and drying dogs who were also eligible to receive nail trims from professionals. Lance Curry, another friend of Elizabeth and Bill Woche, hadn’t washed a dog in 20 years before that Saturday, but his nervousness soon faded as he found most recipients of his grooming skills were well-behaved and appreciative. “There’s as much hair in this tub as there is in my own,” Curry joked, as he rinsed out one of the elevated plastic wash basins. “I’m not normally confident around dogs, so I worried whether I was going to get bit, but they all liked being scrubbed.” “Some of them have been a bit aggressive, but we’ve gotten them to calm

Sittin Pretti cruises into Arlington

ARLINGTON — Close to 250 cars, trucks, hot rods and dragsters returned to the Arlington Airport for the annual Sittin Pretti Summer Slam car show Saturday, Aug. 18, as auto enthusiasts from across the state and beyond turned out to help out a local community organization. Sittin Pretti President Shawn Altermott, who grew up in Marysville, expects this year’s Summer Slam to raise between $3,000 to $4,000 for the Arlington Boys & Girls Club, a feat it’s consistently managed for the past few years. “The turnout is actually a little lower this year,” Altermott said. “Some of that is just the scene in general, and how it’s been impacted by the economy, but we’ve also got the show in Las Vegas coming up, which is the biggest in the world for this type. We should still be able to give about the same amount we do each year, though, because there’s no profit made here. It all goes back into the local community.”

Marysville’s David Wade noted that the crowds were a bit lighter this year, since he usually sees a few fellow Ford Model A owners, but this year he joked that, at the age of 73 and with a 1931 Model A, “I’m probably the oldest guy and the oldest car here.” Wade, a former chief master sergeant in the Air Force whose car reader board bears his rank, was forced to replace everything but the cab and body on his ‘31 Ford in order to meet modern safety specs affordably. As it stands, the car has been appraised at $125,000, even though he knows he’s invested much more than that in it, which is why one of its paint colors is so fitting. “It’s actually called ‘money green,’” Wade laughed. “I always wanted a hot rod. Anyone can have a new car, but even if you have the same make or model of a given classic car as someone else, it’s still not the same car.” Mike Garcia and Cesar Tepale came all the way from Des Moines, Wash., to show off their spiritually

matched set of cars. Garcia’s 1978 Chevrolet Unity bears the name “Redemption” in its paint job, while Tepale rechristened his Buick Regal the “Buick Evil.” “She’s not a car show lady just yet,” Garcia said of his Chevy, whose two-year build was only recently completed. “My goal is to get her four feet in the air, though.” Garcia’s Chevy is a “hopper,” equipped with a single pump and eight car batteries to make it bounce. As for Tepale’s “Buick Evil,” not only does its name appear hidden in all sorts of spots between the front and rear bumpers, but so do an assortment of painted skulls and an appropriately diabolical design on the underside of the hood. “The devil’s face appears in pin-striping on the back, and the front hood has a cathedral in flames,” Tepale said. “It’s just evil enough.” Just as Garcia loves the lines of old Chevys, so too does David Krouse of Mountlake Terrace love the design of Datsuns. And like Tepale, Krouse’s 1977

Marysville’s David Wade has invested so much money in his 1931 Ford Model A that its pinstripes and engine are literally “money green.” Datsun Longbed 620 features a fantasy mural on the inside of its hood. “I gave the artist free reign on the painting, except for the girl who’s in

the center of the canvas,” Krouse said. “This is a great show. I’ve been coming here for years. I like supporting more local shows, and I’m good friends with all the

guys who put it on. Being the Datsun guy helps me stand out from the norm.” “Car guys have wonderful camaraderie,” Wade agreed.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Coal dust is a problem Mr. Graef, Thank you for taking the time to write your editorial in The Globe recently. I completely agree with your very sound conclusion. It’s absurd to ship our natural resources to our biggest economic competitor so they can use them in way that endangers us. But I feel the need to correct your assertion that “the dust argument is empty.” Coal dust is not dumped in at the beginning of the trip and left on its own to blow away in the early part of the train’s journey. During the trip, the engine’s vibration, the movement of the hitches between cars, the rumbling of the wheels down the track and all the other movements of the train contribute to a steady vibration in the coal bed that grinds the surfaces of the coal pieces into a fine dust that is blown off the train and

into our town and our lungs as soon as it is created. This is cause of the hazard that people are very rightly objecting to. It’s such a significant volume that barge operators are now adding airtight lids to their fleets. The volume of coal dust that is prevented from blowing away is worth more than enough to pay for the very expensive hatch system. But more importantly, how many more jobs will we lose to China when we empower them to compete against us by giving them our coal? Instinctively, we all know it will more than offset a few hundred dock workers and a few hundred more temporarily employed construction workers. In the end, this will cause a net loss of jobs for us. The U.S. hasn’t been a colony for 200 years, why are we trying to create a colonial economy? American raw materials belong in America. Eric Peterson

Enforcing environmental laws is key to salmon recovery


or many years we have said that enforcing existing state and federal pollution laws is one of the most effective actions we can take to recover salmon in western Washington and protect tribal treaty rights. It sounds like maybe we are finally being heard. The owner of a Pierce County construction company pled guilty recently to the first criminal charges for stormwater pollution ever filed in western Washington. Under a plea bargain, the owner agreed to pay $750,000 in fines and other costs for violating the federal Clean Water Act under charges brought by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Between 2007 and 2011 the construction company ignored state and federal environmental protection laws and seriously damaged salmon habitat at a project site near Sumner, said Tyler Amon of the EPA Criminal Investigations Division. “This rogue developer knowingly, and repeatedly, chose profit over protection,” he said. “This plea serves as notice to our regional developers … these are serious environmental crimes that will be vigorously pursued.” Polluted stormwater runoff is one of the biggest obstacles to salmon recovery and the cleanup of Puget Sound. Runoff from parking lots, construction sites, roads and other sources flushes many pollutants into wetlands, streams


BILLY FRANK JR. and rivers that feed Puget Sound, the second largest estuary in the United States. We are losing salmon habitat throughout western Washington faster than we can restore it. Protecting existing habitat is much less costly than paying to restore it after the damage is done. Habitat protection is the most important action needed in the short term, according to the Puget Sound Chinook Salmon Recovery Plan developed by the state and tribal salmon co-managers and adopted by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). However, NMFS’ 2010 review of the recovery plan found that habitat is still declining and protection efforts need improvement. We have reached similar conclusions through the 2012 State of Our Watersheds report that will be released next month. Almost three years in the making, it is the most comprehensive report to date on the status of salmon habitat in the region. The report brings together

decades of data collected by tribes, and state and federal agencies to help paint a picture of watersheds across western Washington. We tracked key habitat indicators in watersheds across the region to help gauge just how we’re doing when it comes to habitat protection and restoration, and what we need to do fix the main habitat barriers to salmon recovery. We hope the EPA means what it says and that this is the beginning of a broader effort to finally truly enforce environmental laws to protect salmon habitat. That’s a key recommendation in our Treaty Rights at Risk initiative aimed at encouraging the federal government to lead a more effective and coordinated salmon recovery effort. You can learn more at our website at www.treatyrightsatrisk. org. Salmon recovery begins and ends with habitat — good, plentiful habitat that can produce an abundance of fish for all of us. Our watersheds are living things, and we must stop their bleeding — the loss and damage of salmon habitat — if we ever hope to gain ground on salmon recovery. Aggressive enforcement of existing environmental laws to protect salmon is a good place to start. Billy Frank Jr. is the chairman of the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission.

Chamber barbecue draws local chefs

SMOKEY POINT — The Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce aimed to make Smokey Point live up to its name once more, as five cooking teams entered nine different types of food between them in the Chamber’s barbecue cook-off on Saturday, Aug. 18. The barbecue competition in the parking lot of the Whidbey Island Bank, near the Chamber’s offices, was joined by a two-day marketplace street fair in the adjacent parking lot of the Arlington Wal-Mart on Aug. 18-19. Chamber Managing Director Mary Jane Harman described the cook-off and marketplace as experiments that succeeded well enough to continue. Although this year’s barbecue was not officially sanctioned by the Pacific Northwest Barbecue Association, it followed the PNWBA rules and did well enough that the Chamber is already in talks with the Association to team up on next year’s event. “All three judges were so blown away by the wonderful flavors, they said it was like a having a party in your mouth,” Harman said. Washington LawnScapes, which has offices in both Arlington and Marysville, sent Jaime Martinez to the cook-off, where he presented his family’s six-genera-

tions-old recipe for carne asada. “Timing is everything,” Martinez said. “If you go easy, it tenderizes it, but if it’s too hot, or you let it burn for too long, that’s a mistake.” John Locantore of Bam BBQ & Catering in Marysville won fourth place for his pork, and noted the subjectivity of barbecue tastes as he prepared his plates. “It depends a lot on what area of the country you’re in,” Locantore said. “The key is to keep it simple. You want your spices and rub to enhance the flavor of your meat, not overwhelm it. I think barbecue’s about to hit it big like coffee stands have done.” Dan Fullen of DJ’s BBQ, also in Marysville, won third place for his chicken, and credited the strength of his marinade as the secret to his success. “There’s so many different ways you can smoke the meat,” said Fullen, who also submitted pork and beef ribs. “We prefer to use hickory, pecan and cherry. But the marinade is what makes it moist and tender.” Roxanne Ferrera’s chicken won second place for Lightin Logs & Smokin Hogs BBQ, yet another Marysville team, and she advised aspiring barbecue chefs to exercise patience. “Slow and steady,” Ferrara said, as she cooked bar-

This is my first barbecue competition, so I’m sticking with chicken because it’s simple, and making sure it looks mouthwatering even before it goes in their mouths.” Bill Hoerner of Lily Blue Barbecue in Stanwood won the grand prize for his filet mignon, although he also submitted pork tenderloin and stuffed chicken. “It was beautifully presented and melted in your mouth,” Harman said.

“Overall, it was all three judges’ first choice for appearance, tenderness, texture and taste.” Between the barbecue cook-off and marketplace street fair, the Chamber

drew an estimated 250 attendees over the weekend. “It wasn’t nearly as big as the downtown Arlington Street Fair, but they’ve been around for many years,” Harman said. “We hope

one day to have our event become as big and successful as that event is. We’ve made a lot of new friends and vendors at this event, and hope to double its size for next year.”

‘I Heart Marysville’ Chamber debuts Business After Hours cleans up schools, fields

SMOKEY POINT — The Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce’s first official Business After Hours meeting also served to introduce the community to the Chamber’s new offices, as well as the temporary location for a longtime Arlington merchant. Roughly a dozen attendees stopped by the Chamber’s offices on Thursday, Aug. 16, from Allstate, Dignity Memorial, the Granroth Insurance Agency, Mountain State Fitness and Nutrition, and Pacific Learning Solutions, while Debbie Whitis, a.k.a. “The Purse Lady” of Arlington, showed off the corner of the Chamber’s offices that currently serves as her shop’s home. “It’s a small group now, but we’re just getting started,” said Michelle Wiley, one of the Ambassadors of the Chamber, who led the Aug. 16 Business After Hours. “We’ve made it the third Thursday of every month — the same day on every month — so that people will hopefully remember.” The Ambassadors are a volunteer committee within the Chamber, and their goal is for the Business After Hours meetings to take place on the third Thursday


of every month, from 5:30-7 p.m. at the site of a different local business each month, which would provide light snacks or appetizers, and perhaps even wine or beer, depending on the business in question. These Business After Hours meetings will offer not only door prizes, but also networking opportunities. Each business that brings a door prize will be given a one-minute period to promote themselves to their fellow attendees, but providing such door prizes is not necessary to attend or network at the meetings. Wiley reported that the Holiday Inn Express of Marysville, Granroth Insurance Agency of Smokey Point and Weller Funeral Home of Arlington have all agreed to host future Chamber Business After Hours meetings. She expects that the Business After Hours meetings will soon have enough hosts to see them through the end of 2012, although she’s still encouraging local businesses to participate as either hosts or attendees of the meetings. “We also wanted to take this time to promote the Visitor Information Center at our Chamber offices,” Wiley said on Aug. 16. “We could use volunteers here as well. We had 16 walk-ins

today, which is our biggest daily total of the month. I’m not sure how many people realize what a great resource they have here, but as they get to know our new location, I’m hoping they’ll learn that as well.” According to Donna Leifer, a regular volunteer at the Chamber’s Visitor Information Center, questions about hiking and walking trails are at least as frequent as those regarding local shopping opportunities. “We actually have maps that show us those trails, not only in Arlington and Darrington, but also Stanwood and Granite Falls,” Leifer said. “We’re a Snohomish County Visitor Information Center, so we’re here to promote the whole region, not just Smokey Point or Arlington.” The ArlingtonSmokey Point Chamber of Commerce offices are located at 4126-B 172nd St. NE in Arlington and are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. The next Chamber after hours will take place from 5:30-7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 20, but according to Wiley, two businesses are currently vying to host it, so the location has yet to be determined.

Wondering How to get Started


MARYSVILLE — Less than a couple of weeks after complaints about unkempt schools were made in Marysville, close to 100 volunteers descended upon Grove Elementary and Marysville-Pilchuck High School, as well as an assortment of local parks and Little League fields, to show how much they care about their community. “I Heart Marysville,” a campaign led by the Marysville First Assembly Church, worked volunteers for full-day shifts from Monday, Aug. 6, through Friday, Aug. 10, at Grove Elementary to clear out thistles and weeds, as well as trim back and tend overgrown landscaped plants. At M-PHS, teams repainted the building exteriors, while the Little League fields’ dugouts were reroofed and repaired, and their scoreboards were cleared of graffiti. While the Marysville School District supplied beauty bark and trucks to collect waste, in addition to supervision from maintenance staff, the actual labor was conducted by crews of volunteers who were often young enough to be students themselves, albeit not quite young enough to be attending Grove Elementary. “The schools can’t do it for themselves,” said Bailey

Bailey Downey, Emily Hoot and Natalie Cormier dump weeds and brush clippings from Grove Elementary into the Marysville School District’s collection truck on Aug. 9. Downey, 13, when asked why she sacrificed her summer vacation to sweat in the sun. “It’s good to do work for the community,” agreed Natalie Cormier, 12, as they joined 12-year-old Emily Hoot in dumping weeds and brush clippings into the district’s truck. Evan Westfield, 19, and Joshua Harris, 17, both believe that such works are ways of putting their religious beliefs into practice. “We show God’s love by serving the community,” Westfield said. “It really is, ‘What Would Jesus Do?’” Harris said. “It’s up to us to make

these kids feel welcome, in their schools and on their play fields,” said Cody Hjort, 15. “We have to show some initiative, because we’re the older kids, so we’re setting the example for them.” Marysville First Assembly Children’s Pastor Fawnda Faucett emphasized that this week of cleanup was planned as far back as October of last year, so the timing of its start with the news stories about Grove was purely coincidental. “Our church is part of this community,” Faucett said. “We live here, work here and send our kids to school here, so we want it to look better.”

AHS Class of ‘42 holds reunion

ARLINGTON — Arlington High School’s graduating class of 1942 originally boasted 68 members, but that number has dwindled down to about a dozen survivors in the decades since. Those who remain still make a point of getting together every once in a while, though, which is how the Denny’s Restaurant at Island Crossing found itself hosting the 70th class reunion of the AHS Class of ‘42 on Tuesday, Aug. 7. Ruth Yost — one of the three “Ruths” in the group — explained that the Class of ‘42 had previously met for their 50th, 60th and 65th reunions as well, and emphasized that the number who were able to attend the 70th reunion is not the same as the number of those who are still alive. “Shirley Cox is in

Ruth Yost’s husband Harry and Ruth Wayt’s husband Clarence, both of whom passed on in 2009, also served in the fleet together. World War II fell under current events rather than history when this class was still attending high school, and the school newspapers that a few of them brought to the reunion included unflattering caricatures of Adolf Hitler and the Axis powers. Charles Haddenham, one of the students listed on the Feb. 24, 1942, issue of “The Eagle,” was one of the reunion’s attendees, along with his wife Ruth and their son Tim. “I remember her hair used to be red,” Bud Peterson said as Laverne Mangum entered the room. “All our hair has changed color,” Stan Kazen said. “All the hair that’s left, anyway,” Peterson acknowledged.

When the Cottages in Marysville open, they will be able to serve as many as 50 memory care residents in their four cottages. room, as well as individual and two-person bedrooms for its residents. Each bedroom features a glass-front “memory box” outside of its door, which residents and families can fill with memorabilia, and each cottage is staffed 24/7 by two nurses each per shift. “The activities that are part of memory care are designed to help the residents feel a sense of accomplishment,” Johnson said. “We don’t do bingo or anything that’s too challenging for them to recall. We allow them to live in the moment, whatever that moment might be. If they happen to be in 1948, we’ll go with that, rather than trying

to correct them. Our care is geared toward their needs.” Karen Steward, one of the nurses at the Cottages at Marysville, explained that the residents’ activities are not overly structured, so they can maintain a sense of independence, by choosing to participate as they wish. “We engage with them personally, to create moments of joy for them,” Steward said. “Their families are also welcome to pop in anytime,” Johnson added.

Woodinville now,” Yost said. “Lois Langsjoen planned to be here, but she had to go to the hospital just recently.” Everyone in the room agreed that the area has become much more populated, at the same time that they lamented the loss of larger department stories from downtown Arlington. Many also expressed how fortunate they feel to have survived the war that shaped their young adult years. “We were the first class to graduate during WWII,” Dorothy Caroll said. “We didn’t know if we would get to graduate.” Indeed, many of the school’s teachers and other staff members were drafted into the military, and many members of the Class of ‘42 joined the service as well. Peterson went into the Army, while Haddenham and Kazen both went into the Navy.



MARYSVILLE — The Cottages at Marysville look forward to opening their doors in late August or early September, and while Marysville offers a number of senior care centers already, the Cottages at Marysville are unique in that they provide memory care services, according to Kim Johnson, executive director of the Cottages at Marysville. “We specialize in serving those with memory issues by giving them a homelike setting with one-on-one attention,” Johnson said of the Cottages at Marysville, which touts a capacity for 50 residents, but will likely start with just half a dozen and grow from there. “Each cottage accommodates between nine and 12 residents, and we cater to their needs with features such as a main kitchen area from which they’re served, to make it feel more like they’re living in a home, as well as complete security. At the same time, they’re free to come and go as they please.” Each of the four cottages — Alder, Birch, Cedar and Dogwood — contains its own kitchen and living

Historical Society museum to break ground MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Historical Society is set to break ground on their long-awaited museum, at 10 a.m. on Aug. 25.

In addition to the museum effort, the MHS has engaged in other community projects including the purchase and relocation of the Gehl Pioneer Home to Jennings Park in 1984 as part of Marysville’s State Centennial commemoration. Another successful MHS project was the battle to save the historic water tower in Comeford Park after city of Marysville officials announced plans to demolish it. The MHS led the fundraising campaign that succeeded in saving the landmark and on Dec. 7, 2002, the restored water tower was dedicated as part of the “Merrysville For the Holidays” celebration. The museum is seen as the next project in this line of successful endeavors for the Society. Design concepts will be on display at the groundbreaking and construction is scheduled to start in September. The Marysville Historical Society is a private, not-for profit organization of about 200 members, dedicated to the discovery, preservation and display of all items relating to the history of the greater Marysville area. This includes artifacts, photographs and personal stories about the people who brought Marysville out of the woods and made it a city.

Marysville Getchell returns to the gridiron BY LAUREN SALCEDO

MARYSVILLE — This month marks the beginning of Marysville Getchell High School’s second football season, and the Chargers have nowhere to go but up. The Wesco 3A team spent their inaugural season on the losing end of every game, not an unexpected outcome for a brand new team with inexperienced players. Head Coach Davis Lura has high hopes for the team as they go into their first match-up against Mariner High School in an away game on Aug. 31. “We basically returned our whole team,” said Lura. “Last year we had nobody with varsity experience.” For Lura, it was his first year coaching the team and he began by teaching them the basics. “I spent a lot of time training them on the practices,” he said. “It was basically just our year to get used to everything.” The team began their first week of training on Wednesday, Aug. 15, and are already pumped about the upcoming season. The players have already dedicated

hours and hours to rigorous practice in preparation for their first game. “Right now we are just rehashing stuff that they already know and really working on fine-tuning their skills,” said Lura. Two players returning for their second season with the Chargers are 2011 All-Wesco second team picks, senior wide receiver Alexzander Seymer and senior outside linebacker Cody Stone. “We try to preach that this is a team game,” said Lura. “If one player does well, it’s usually because of the efforts of the whole team.” And the whole team is putting in a lot of effort for a season they are hoping will really pack a punch. “We are building everything up,” said Lura. “Right now we are miles ahead of where we were last year. We have improved a lot and I expect us to be very competitive. And we’ll definitely be fun to watch.” The Chargers play their first game against Mariner at Goddard Stadium, at 200 120th St. SW in Everett, on Aug. 31, beginning at 7 p.m.

Ragin’ Ray Golf Tournament raises $7,000 BY LAUREN SALCEDO

ARLINGTON — The second annual Ragin’ Ray Golf Tournament fundraiser boasted more than $7,000 raised and more than 90

participants at the Gleneagle Golf Course on Aug. 11. “We had outstanding support from the community,” said Lianna Neyens, co-founder and owner of Firefighters’ Wives, a nonprofit organization that

hosts the tournament each year. The Ragin’ Ray Golf tournament began in 2011 as a way to raise funds for Marysville Fire District firefighter Ray Hancock, who was diagnosed with

Ray Hancock, center, stands with his wife Lisa and father Hector at the second annual Ragin’ Ray Golf Tournament, a local fundraiser supporting his family as he deals with a career ending health diagnosis — Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, in 2010. Hancock has been working for the district for nearly 20 years. “My husband is a firefighter who worked with Ray,” said Neyens. Neyens began Firefighters’ Wives with Kara Tucker, whose husband Jeff Tucker works with Hancock at the Marysville Fire District, as a way to show support for firefighters — especially those who are suffering from careerending circumstances such as Hancock’s diagnosis. “We just want to show our support to those who risk their lives everyday for our safety,” said Neyens. The golf tournament is in its second year and raised more than $7,000. “This is our first year at Gleneagle,” said Neyens. “Gleneagle was very accommodating and generous with their golf course and food service the day of the event.” Ninety-three golfers competed and dozens of

local businesses and fire districts sponsored the event, including several local businesses that donated raffle items and a separate raffle hosted by Sunrise Dental in Marysville. All of the raffle proceeds were immediately donated to Hancock and his family. “Most of our hole sponsors were other local fire departments,” said Neyens, who included Marysville, Arlington, Getchell, Lake Stevens and Bremerton as department locals who sponsored holes. “It’s really exceptional to see their support.” Hancock himself came to the tournament and was overwhelmed by the show of support from his community. “There’s just no words to describe it,” said Hancock. “To see everybody come out on a Saturday to support me and my family was just awesome.” Gleneagle Golf Course provided a barbecue following the tournament and local musician Jim

Brunkhorst volunteered his time to perform at the event. “The band was donated at the last minute, which was a nice surprise,” said Neyens. The third annual Ragin’ Ray Golf Tournament has already been scheduled for Sept. 13. 2013, also at Gleneagle Golf Course. “We had a little less participation than last year, and I think it’s because it was scheduled for a summer Saturday and a lot of people were on vacation. We hope to have a little more next year,” said Neyens. Despite a slightly smaller turnout than the inaugural event, Neyens was still impressed with the level of commitment to Hancock. “It’s really amazing that even people who don’t know Ray, but who have heard of him, are coming out to support him. It’s outstanding,” she said. For more information on the Ragin’ Ray Golf Tournament, visit

Sheldon praised the Hibulb Cultural Center for affording a glimpse into the Tulalip Tribes’ past prior to their contact with European settlers, back when they lived off the land. While he’s heartened to see his fellow Tulalip Tribal members attending the Hibulb Cultural Center’s programs and perusing its exhibits, he also hopes to continue seeing tourist traffic from outside of the reservation as well. “We’re sharing the Tulalip Tribes with the greater community,” Sheldon said. “We’re sharing who we are, and what we are, so that it can be carried on by the little ones of today, like this one,” he said, pointing to 3-yearold Weston Gobin, grandson of Glen Gobin, who served as one of the welcoming drummers and singers for the opening ceremony. “He’ll carry this on after we’re all long gone.

Tulalip youth maintain trail

DARRINGTON — Seven Tulalip students gained work experience and helped out the community by working on a two-day stewardship project to maintain the Big Four Ice Caves Trail to Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility standards on the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. The trail work involved removing excess branches and pulling weeds and vegetation from the sides of the trail. They also cleared away drainage areas from avalanche debris by rolling logs down a hill. Most of the forestry projects the students work on are on the Tulalip Reservation. This was the first visit to the national forest for student Moy Flores. “I like working out in nature, it beats the office,” he said. Flores added that cutting down weeds with a weed whip was the highlight of his day.

The stewardship project also offered educational opportunities for the students. After lunch on the first day a Forest Service ranger led the group to the ice caves, explaining the history of the area and describing how snow piles up below the Big Four Mountain to create the caves. “I try to get these kids out to experience more,” said Jason Gobin, Tulalip forestry manager. The Tulalip Tribe provides summer jobs to teens between the ages of 14-18 to gain experience in career fields ranging from hotel resort management, office administration and housing to natural resource stewardship. The students work 180 hours and receive volunteer credits for high school graduation. For more information contact Jason Gobin at 425210-5156.

Due to continued high fire dangers, and prolonged hot and dry weather conditions, the Snohomish County Fire Marshal is reminding residents that outdoor burning, except for recreational fires, has been banned. Residents also are asked to take extra precautions with recreational fires. “While we are not banning recreational fires, we are asking residents to reconsider how necessary they might be in light of current weather conditions,” said Mike McCrary, the county’s Fire Marshal. Recreational fires are less than three feet in diameter and two feet high, and are for cooking and pleasure only. Recreational fires must be contained within a fire pit that has been cleared of all combustible material within a 10-foot radius. They must be monitored

at all times, and must have a water source readily available (at a minimum, a charged water hose or a five-gallon bucket of water). The current burn ban began Aug. 6 and will remain in effect until further notice. Residents within the boundaries of an incorporated city or town should check with their local fire departments for current burning ban information. All outdoor burn permits, including permits issued by the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency for agricultural burning, are suspended until this ban is lifted. This ban will remain in effect until there is a sustained period of rainfall and the fire risk returns to low. Contact the Outdoor Burning Information Hotline at 425-388-3508 for updated information.

‘Drive Hammered, Get Nailed’ continues through Sept. 3

August is a deadly month on Washington’s roadways, according to the Fatality Analysis Reporting System. From 2006-10, on average, more impaired driving deaths occurred in August than any other month. That’s why, from now through Sept. 3, extra officers will

be looking for DUI drivers during the annual “Drive Hammered, Get Nailed” campaign in Snohomish County. During last year’s “Drive Hammered, Get Nailed” campaign, officers on routine and extra patrols arrested 113 peo-

ple for DUI in Snohomish County alone. For all of 2011 in Snohomish County, 4,108 people were charged with DUI, according to the Administrative Office of the Courts. The Arlington, Marysville and Tulalip Tribal police depart-



ments will be joining those of Brier, Edmonds, Everett, Granite Falls, Lake Stevens, Lynnwood, Mill Creek, Monroe, Mountlake Terrace and Mukilteo, as well as the Snohomish County Sheriff ’s Office and the Washington State Patrol, in participating in the “Drive


Hammered, Get Nailed” campaign. The Bothell Police Department will also conduct patrols as part of the Snohomish County effort. For additional information about the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, visit www.

Nehring shared words at the Council award presentation from a high school project that profiled Gardner, written by her granddaughter, who described her grandmother as a woman of strength and wisdom, a great storyteller with plenty of youthful drive, and an expert bread baker in her limited spare time. On behalf of Gardner, Nehring encouraged community members to consider joining the volunteer group by contacting the Volunteer Department at Providence, to “make a positive impact.”

Diane Gardner, left, is named Volunteer of the Month for June by Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring.

31, 2014, which will reduce the funding available to the city starting in 2015, the city is facing a more immediate estimated deficit of $700,000 in 2013, which Tolbert cited as requiring additional cuts. Over the past few years, the city has already used furloughs for non-uniformed personnel, as well as salary savings from arrangements with its uniformed police, fire and EMS personnel, but Tolbert acknowledged that these measures are shortterm solutions that won’t lead to “an ultimate fix” for the city’s budget shortfalls. “Based upon these reasons, I have directed that the city of Arlington organization be reviewed and realigned from top to bottom,” Tolbert said. “These two layoffs are part of that realignment. There are additional, unavoidable changes within the organization that will be forthcoming in the next few weeks. The realignment will help us succeed in the long term” Tolbert thanked Kuhl and Phelps for their commitment to the city, and the hard work that they’ve each invested in it over the years.

ARLINGTON — The city of Arlington announced on Tuesday, Aug. 7, that Community Development Director David Kuhl and Wellness Coordinator Sherri Phelps had been laid off effective immediately. According to Arlington Mayor Barbara Tolbert, this layoff is strictly for budgetary purposes and is in no way a reflection “of the dedication and commitment these fine individuals have given to our organization over the many years.” Tolbert cited the ongoing declines in the city’s sales tax collections over the years as a factor in this decision. “This was not an easy decision to make,” Tolbert said. “In 2009 and 2010, the city exhausted its reserves to keep employees’ jobs. At the end of 2011, we faced an upcoming $2 million deficit. We were able to close this gap through the sacrifices made by all departments and all employees, in addition to increased utility taxes that secured additional revenue for the city.” Although some of these increases will sunset on Dec.

a time when they need it most. Her extra hospital volunteer time is devoted to orienting all new volunteers to the hospital by teaching a three-hour class monthly or bi-monthly. She played a key role in developing the content of the program. Gardner also devotes time to train individual volunteers in the Rounding Program, the volunteer group that replenishes name labels in patient charts and offers patients reading materials or other items to make them feel more comfortable within a hospital environment, Nehring said. Gardner was recently chosen to lead a tour for special need students who might be able to volunteer in selected areas of the hospital. Currently, along with hospital leadership, she is developing the orientation program for high school students who volunteer during the summer. Volunteer department leaders recently honored Gardner for assisting them last year with the orientation development and implementation of the pro-

MARYSVILLE — Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring has named Diane Gardner as Volunteer of the Month for June for her countless volunteer hours and leadership through the Patient Link Program at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett. “Diane has a lot invested in Providence, and the time, effort and compassion she gives are indispensable to the Providence family in its mission to provide compassionate care,” Nehring said at a recent Marysville City Council meeting, where Gardner was honored. “We applaud her for her work at the hospital, and for all she does in her community.” One day a week, Gardner participates in the Patient Link Program. Her time involves visiting all patients who have been admitted to the hospital within the prior 24 hours of her scheduled start. According to Nehring, visiting with patients gives Gardner the opportunity to apply excellent communication skills and an endless supply of compassion to work for sick people, at
