SMOKEY POINT — On the same evening that the Arlington Arts Council again asked the community to show the charitable spirit that’s kept community art projects going in Arlington, so too did the Arts Council recognize those community members whose contributions have been especially precious to them, during the annual “Fall Into Art” auction on Saturday, Oct. 20. Jean Olson, treasurer for the Arlington Arts Council, acknowledged that attendance for their only fundraiser of the year has seen a slight decline, but noted that the same has been true for many community-based charitable organizations. “We launched the Sound Garden next to Legion Park,” Olson said of the hands-on public musical instrument which includes “The Swirl”

from Freenotes Harmony Park, designed by Grammy Awardwinning musician Richard Cooke. The Arlington Arts Council plans to add bells and drums to the Sound Garden. “We’re also finishing two more entryway signs for Arlington,” Olson said of the Native American-style raptor by Everett’s Barry Herem and a landscape by Arlington’s Carolyn Sumpter. “In the coming year, we’re simply committed to finishing existing projects,” said Olson, noting that limited finances are forcing them to prioritize a number of prospective projects with public input. Arlington Arts Council President Sarah Arney reflected on the group’s most significant loss within the past year, the death of longtime member Kent Baker due to lung cancer this May. “He left behind many memSEE ART, PAGE 2

LWSD Board member to step down Dec. 19 BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

Ken Christiansen’s resignation from the Lakewood School District Board of Directors takes effect Dec. 19.

LAKEWOOD — After serving on the Lakewood School District Board of Directors since Dec. 5, 2001, Board member Ken Christiansen is resigning this year. Christiansen submitted a letter of resignation at the Oct. 17 Board meeting, and his resignation takes effect Dec. 19. In his letter, Christiansen wrote, “It has been my privilege to serve on the Board these past 11 years. Throughout this period I have worked alongside very talented, dedicated and capable board members. It has been a worthwhile and rewarding endeavor to be a part of

helping provide support to the district staff, administration and families in Lakewood.” He further wrote, “Serving the Lakewood School District has been an honor and I will miss it. Lakewood School District has been and continues to be a source of great pride for me personally. Best wishes to everyone as the district continues the efforts to provide and deliver a high quality education to our students.” After submitting his letter of resignation, Christiansen enumerated on his proudest achievements as part of the Lakewood School District Board of Directors, such as helping to address the facili-



ties needs of students and staff alike. “When I started on the Board, we had 36 portables, and that’s been drastically reduced,” Christiansen said. “We’ve not only caught up in accommodating the kids we had, but we’ve also kept up with the growth since then, which has admittedly flattened out in recent years.” Another pressing need when Christiansen began his tenure on the Board was replacements for curriculum materials. “We’ve gotten on top of that and stayed on it,” said Christiansen, who pointed to SEE BOARD PAGE 2

District 3 area. Applications will be accepted through Nov. 16. The Board will be conducting interviews for all qualified applicants at the Dec. 5 Board meeting.

After she credited “Fall Into Art” Auction Chair Virginia Hatch with the heavy lifting of coordinating the event, Arney presented the Art Advocate of Arlington Award to Norma Pappas, owner of the Olympic Theatre. “She has slaved away six to seven nights a week to foster the art of movies, providing a cultural center for families and preserving a historic building in our downtown,” Arney said, before presenting Pappas with a painting of the Olympic Theatre’s marquee. “As she’s facing a transition

to digital film, a group in Arlington has formed to try and find ways of keeping the Olympic Theatre around for all of us.” Arney went on to praise the city of Arlington for its partnership with the Arlington Arts Council, singling out Paul Ellis, assistant to the City Administrator for Special Projects, and city Recreation Manager Sarah Lopez for plaudits, as well as City Council members such as Marilyn Oertle and Steve Baker. “That proposal wall has a lot of good ideas,” Arney said, pointing to the pictures of proposed art projects on the back wall of the Medallion Hotel dining room in Smokey Point. “We just have to figure out which ones we’re going to do next.” Wendy Becker, economic development officer for Snohomish County, delivered the keynote address before the live auction, in which she tied a community’s art projects to its economic prosperity. “Community artwork not only creates an environment that feels more like a community, but it contributes to economic development by inspiring tourism and community revitalization,” Becker said. “There are approximately 100,000 jobs in the creative economy in this state, that generate roughly $673 million in revenues. Not only does art attract tourism dollars, but cultural tourists tend to stay longer and spend more money. The arts can be as unique a selling point for Arlington as the Philly Cheesesteak is for Philadelphia.”

similar progress in technology. “When I began here, we had 85 computers in the whole system, none of which could be used in the classroom. Now, every teaching station has its own smartboard, as well as the professional development programs so that teachers can use them effectively.” Christiansen looks forward to the opportunity to enjoy more personal time and engage in other civic areas of interest. He had already opted not to run for a fourth term when he took stock of his other commitments, to both his family and his career.

“They were taking up enough of my energy that, rather than serving out the remainder of my term in a marginal fashion, I thought it would be better to allow the Board to replace me with someone who could take on a more significant role.” Christiansen advised his successor, whomever he or she might be, to learn how the Lakewood School District works and to make its longterm goals their own. His last official Board meeting will be Dec. 18, and during that meeting, the Board will host a brief recess to thank him personally for his many years of contributions to the district.

Larson visits Arlington manufacturing facilities

ARLINGTON — U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen’s visit to the former facilities for Bayliner and U.S. Marine adjacent to the Arlington Airport on Wednesday, Oct. 17, found an area that’s at more than half of its occupancy, according to Brent Nicholson, one of the partners in the ownership group for the site. “We’re doing pretty well tenant-wise,” Nicholson told Larsen and a number of Arlington city officials, including Arlington Mayor Barbara Tolbert. “By next spring, we could be at 100 percent capacity.” Paul Ellis, assistant to the City Administrator for Special Projects, noted that Meridian Yachts employed as few as 800 people at the site by the time it shut down at the end of 2008, down from a peak of 2,200 employees. Realistically, Nicholson expects that his tenants will employ a little more than 300 people even at full site capacity, but he agreed with Larsen that the upturn in tenants at the site

shows a resurgence of the manufacturing market. “Only one in 10 want to buy,” Nicholson said. “The rest have wanted to lease.” Tolbert and Arlington City Administrator Allen Johnson asserted that the city has worked to streamline its processes to facilitate the coming of new businesses, especially in the manufacturing field, an assessment with which Ted Wheeler heartily concurred. Wheeler, a general contractor formerly of T&E International, officially rechristened his company HCI Steel Building Systems about a month ago, after acquiring a number of the since-defunct company’s equipment and moving into the site east of the Arlington Airport this spring. A selfdescribed conservative, he and Larsen shared a laugh over Wheeler’s admission that he might not necessarily vote for Larsen in the fall, but he emphasized that he was willing to listen to Larsen’s positions. “Tax increases are killing us,” Wheeler told Larsen. “Sixty-five percent of our

spending cuts are coming from only 35 percent of our budget,” Larsen said. “Onehundred percent spending cuts alone can’t do it.” Wheeler attributed his own businesses’ survival through lean economic times to a philosophy that prizes fostering consumer loyalty in the long run over generating short-term profits. “You can’t retire off every customer,” Wheeler said. “Our prices aren’t always the lowest, but they’re seldom ever the highest, and the price we give people is the price they get, unless we can give them a savings if our own costs turn out to be lower. You can’t be greedy.” Ken Turner of Pacific Tank & Energy voiced his grievances with the Dodd– Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which he saw as blocking loans to his own business even after he showed that he already had customers signed on for his fuel containers, but Larsen disputed that Dodd-Frank was the culprit. “Regardless, it’s not just our business,” Turner said.

U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen, left, speaks with Ken Turner of Pacific Tank & Energy about ways to facilitate the economic growth of small businesses on Oct. 17. “We all have customers who want to buy, but even with Triple-A ratings it’s hard to get financing, even when we already have contracts.” In contrast to Wheeler, who praised Tolbert and her city staff upon meeting them, Turner had never met Tolbert before that morning, although he’d dealt with Ellis frequently. Both Wheeler and Turner, however, agreed that Nicholson

has been an excellent landlord to them. “Of all the landlords I’ve had, you’re on the top bar,” Wheeler told Nicholson, before telling Larsen and the Arlington city officials, “Brent will even work with you when you’re late on a payment.” “Hear, hear,” Turner added. “The way that Brent has managed to resurrect this place is nothing short

of heroic.” Wheeler compared the slow recovery of the economy to a steady airplane takeoff, and argued that he wouldn’t want it to go too high, too fast. “Rather than stalling out, this should lay a solid foundation for a more stable future,” Wheeler said. “Rick is extremely on top of things,” Turner said of Larsen.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Who would steal from a food bank? A small church near Granite Falls offers a food bank once a month. They have a little room for storage. Someone went in (broke in) and stole all the food in the freezer and food in the little storage room. What is happening to our communities? Don’t people and neighbors care about those who have less, the aged, or those without sources of money to get by on? Is there no love in the hearts of a friend. Is it all selfishness? Beverley Hathaway Marysville

Vote No on charter schools White billionaires want to control the education of poor people. Why? To make a profit, for excitement and fun, for power, for a feeling of self-righteousness, for a chance to be a do-gooder? Numerous studies have proven that charter schools, on average, don’t do a better job of educating than regular public schools. Stanford University conducted a study that shows only one in five charter schools are more

successful than a public school. The rest are the same or worse. It is foolhardy to replace a public school, with a community that supports it, for a privately controlled school that is probably no better and possibly worse and accountable only to their own, high-paid directors. Only about one-third of charter school teachers remain teaching after two years. Most teachers don’t begin to develop into a good teacher until their third year. Charter schools dramatically underserve or discourage children with special needs, second language learners, children in homeless or foster care situations, and those that get free or reduced lunch. Yes, this is discrimination. Public schools are open to all. Poverty is the main cause of poor academic achievement. This has just recently been documented with the results of the SAT tests that show scores rising in stair step increments with the increase of household income. (Skagit Valley Herald) When we are willing to attack the problem of poverty, we will see children able to learn. Until childhood poverty, an increase in household income, and health care for all are tackled, education for all will not happen. Judy Fay Arlington

Campaign rhetoric misses the big picture


hile 12.5 million workers remain unemployed, politicians blame each other for a weak job market using arguments like these: “The president isn’t doing all he can to create jobs.” “No, he inherited the mess. Your plan only continues that flawed system.” “Oh, yeah? You think raising taxes for the people who make jobs is going to help?” “Read your history! Whenever we’ve had higher taxes on the superrich there’s always been high profits and employment.” The public is tired of bickering. Not that it’s totally empty of substance, it’s that we need and deserve better, something that reflects educated understanding. Instead, leaders burden us with juvenile wrangling that gets the nation nowhere. The media isn’t much help. They seldom look deeper than how many are drawing unemployment, how many have exhausted benefits, how many have given up searching and how many new jobs have been created. Nothing but soulless numbers there. We’d like some depth, please. Give us something more to ponder than the surface of problems. Nothing gets done to solve this sticky issue by holding the focus on unemployment data. Data says only that we have a problem and describes its size. It falls short of identifying underlying issues and what can be done about them. Imagine Democrats and Republicans positioned on opposite sides of a pond to study it. But all they observe and argue about is the few leaves drifting this way and that across the surface. Just so, they appear so focused on the surface of the unemployment problem that they seem blind to its root causes. Identifying root causes brings up two questions: (1) Would it actually do any good to tackle some particular cause, and (2) would it be best for government to keep its nose out of certain issues. Keep those questions in



mind while scanning 10 real causes for unemployment. Outsourcing: The system is rigged to reward industries for shipping jobs overseas. Mergers and acquisitions: Due to economies of scale, jobs are always lost when corporations marry. Where two companies have purchasing departments before a merger, one, along with its employees, will disappear afterward. The retire-rehire revolving door: In school districts, industry, the military and government, hiring of new workers is minimized wherever retirees return to work while collecting retirement benefits. Production technology: Jobs are lost when bigger faster machines are put to work. Though this cannot and should not be reversed, it still must be considered as a significant source of unemployment. Foreign competition: Expect China to restrict importation of American goods while continuing to fill American shelves with Made in China inventory. If you want a plastic doohickey manufactured, it almost certainly will be made in China. Or Sri Lanka. Or the Philippines. Dwindling resources: Over 60 years, Marysville lost three critical sources of employment; Logging, fishing and mill-work. After trees and fish were overharvested, thousands of jobs disappeared and with the demise of logging, mills that converted logs to finished building products shut down. Reduced purchasing power: What goes around, comes around. When unemployed or underemployed workers lack the buying power to keep factories busy producing goods, factory payrolls are trimmed. Stagnant piles of money: Apple,

among others, sits on billions of dollars, awaiting a more promising business climate before putting the money to work. Meanwhile, thousands of small businesses are desperate for the working capital that creates jobs. Monopolistic control: The giants of manufacturing, finance, agriculture and marketing overshadow opportunity for small business and smallbusiness jobs. We’re witnessing two (soon three) local Walmarts strangling small Marysville and Arlington retailers. More jobs are lost than gained. Fossil fuel industries fight development of alternative energy facilities. Daily TV ads show Big Coal and Big Oil working to convince the public that fossil fuels must remain the heart of America’s energy supply. On the other hand, thousands of new alternative energy facilities would hire hundreds of thousands of new employees. Of course coal and oil will remain, but not to dominate America’s changing energy profile. This list goes on to charge Congress with stonewalling good jobs bills in order to damage the record of a sitting president. And of course unemployment, itself, is a great creator of unemployment. If you’re not working you’re not earning. If you’re not earning you’re not spending. If you’re not spending you’re not supporting employment across the economy. The super-rich seem to have gone blind to this basic economic reality. Proof shows as investors pull down handsome profits while battling against minimum wage increases. As workers from whom they draw their income go broke, lose homes, file bankruptcy and go without medical insurance, all lose. How could investors forget that middle and low income spenders are the geese that lay their golden eggs? The nation needs to mount a fullcourt press against every assailable limit to employment, whether large or small. I’ll vote for whoever appears to best understand this. Comments may be addressed to

Aunt Nae’s Attic opens, collects for Food Bank BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — Jeff and Renae Allen were no strangers to waiting in line at the Marysville Community Food Bank, so when their fortunes had recovered enough that they no longer required its services, they started think about how they could support the organization that had given them so much aid when they needed it. “We’ve been thinking of doing this for at least five years now,” Renae Allen said after the official ribbon-cutting for “Aunt Nae’s Attic” on 1402 State Ave. on Friday, Oct. 19. “When Jeff ’s stepfather passed away and left us some money, we decided that we needed to do this now, since we’ve been living in Marysville since 1999.” The Allens’ collectables and thrift store was welcomed to the neighborhood by Marysville Mayor Jon

Nehring and City Council members Steve Muller, Carmen Rasmussen, Michael Stevens and Rob Toyer, who joined Marysville Community Food Bank Director Dell Deierling in taking part in the ribboncutting. Not only are the Allens collecting food for the Food Bank at their store, but they’re also accepting donations of reusable household items, clothes and toys, so that they can give a portion of the profits to the Food Bank from selling those donated items. “This was all my wife’s idea, and it’s a great idea,” Jeff Allen said. “After we got caught up on our bills, we just said, ‘Let’s do it.’ They helped us, so now it’s our time to help them.” Renae Allen explained that a friend of Jeff ’s had donated a great deal of his belongings to the Allens when he moved, giving them enough goods to start

the store’s stock, which the couple then supplemented with donations from other friends and family members. “It was about a 35-year collection,” said Renae Allen, whose nickname of “Aunt Nae” dates back to her days of selling merchandise on eBay. “So we are packed.” “I wish these folks nothing but the best,” Nehring said. “The Food Bank is hurting for supplies, so I’d love to rally more support for them as we head into the holiday season.” “This is all part of the community support system,” Deierling said. “People can purchase useful items here at a fraction of the cost. Especially in this economy, we really need to make our dollars stretch.” Since opening their doors close to a month before their official grand opening, Renae Allen has seen dishes, cups and pans

and well-stocked. “We’ve raised our family here,” Renae Allen said. “We know what it’s like to not be able to feed your kids. We’ve been there, which is why

we’re collecting year-round now.” Aunt Nae’s Attic is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.

Sadie Lane supports breast cancer awareness BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

Kirk Boxleitner/Staff Photo

Ronda Howard and her son Logan look forward to raising funds for breast cancer awareness through a portion of their October sales at Sadie Lane Vintage Treasures.

ARLINGTON — Ronda Howard just opened Sadie Lane Vintage Treasures at 301 N. Olympic Ave. in the spring, but she’s already looking to start an annual tradition at her store. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an occasion that’s possessed extra significance for Howard since her mother’s passing 14 years ago, at the age of 50. To that end, October has been a “Pink Month” for Sadie Lane, as Howard has offered her customers a variety of opportunities to show their support for those who are or have been impacted by breast cancer. Not only can visitors to her store write the names of loved ones who have faced breast cancer — “those who have lost, those who have won, and those who are still in the middle of it” — but those who donate to her jar can tie pink ribbons around the branches of a tree in her storefront window. “More than anything else, it’s inspired a lot of conversations,” Howard said. “People have just come in to talk and tell me their stories, whether they’re survivors or still fighting or they’ve lost someone.” Howard’s ambitious plans for future Octobers at her store include trying to schedule a visit from a portable discounted mammography van during the month. She’s been so impressed by the community

spirit that’s been demonstrated during the Arlington Relays For Life on behalf of the American Cancer Society that she’s optimistic that October could become just as much a pink month in Arlington as the summer months are purple for the town. “I’ve got a platform and I’m going to use it,” Howard said. “Losing my mom was my main drive to go pink, and while the money in the jar is still growing, it’s the conversations promoting awareness of breast cancer that have been my main goal.” Which is not to say that fundraising is not also important, since Howard has credited the generosity of her 15 vendors with allowing her to sell several pink-tagged donated items in the store with 100 percent of those proceeds going toward breast cancer awareness and research. In addition to vintage and antique items that Howard refurbishes and repurposes herself, her vendors’ selection includes a variety of new clothing and old household items, as well as what she calls “fun junk.” “I have my own work area in the back of the shop,” Howard said. “This business grew out of my garage on Facebook into this. It was named after my Rottweiler, Gracious Sadie Lane.” For more information on Sadie Lane or their breast cancer awareness promotions, you may contact Howard by phone at 360-403-0760 or via email at

Pilchuck Hot Rod Academy hosts car show

SMOKEY POINT — Hot rod and motorcycle enthusiasts will have a chance to show off their rides while helping to support an alternative avenue of education for area youth who share their passions. The Pilchuck Hot Rod Academy, which now has 501(c)(3) nonprofit status, is inviting the surrounding community to attend its car show fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 27, from noon to 4 p.m., complete with food and live music. The Pilchuck Hot Rod Academy was borne of the commitment of Dave Grinnell and his partners, Marcus Hansen and Kate Otey, whose goal has been to create confident and productive workers in the future by assisting students now in graduating from high school or obtaining their GEDs, as well as by enlisting businesses and community volunteers to mentor those prospective workers in trade skills. When Grinnell was told that he could no longer pursue his previous career in construction due to the wear and tear that it had put on his body, he thought back to his youthful love of classic cars and soupedup rigs, and realized that he had an opportunity to help out the kids of today who face scholastic challenges similar to those he

overcame. “My dad was a maintenance man at a steel fabrication shop, so I grew up around dozens of cars,” Grinnell said. “He was always helping other people out with their cars, but he never found time to finish his own.” While Grinnell inherited his father’s passion for cars, the Pilchuck Hot Rod Academy is intended to serve much more than his own nostalgic interests. “The hot rods are just the candy to attract the kids,” Grinnell said. “What really matters is giving them a comfortable place where they can receive positive feedback. We’re about counseling them as much as anything else.” Grinnell is always looking to recruit more businesses and individuals with expertise in this field to provide lectures and demonstrations, and he’s already built up a library of thousands of automotive publications and films of car races through donations from the community, including hot rod magazines from 1955 through 1981 dropped off by Jim Wharton. “This is for the kids who might not hang out at school,” Grinnell said. “There’s no reason to put yourself into debt with student loans to go to college if that’s not where your passions lie. We have such tal-

MARYSVILLE — Volunteers are needed to help Snohomish County residents keep more of what they earn, as part of United Way’s IRSapproved free tax preparation program in 2013. All volunteers will receive training from United Way and will be certified by the IRS. In addition to tax preparers, United Way is also looking for volunteers who do not wish to prepare income taxes, but who wish to serve as greeters and intake specialists. Goodwill’s Marysville Job Training and Education Center will be hosting the free tax preparation site in Marysville. Volunteers who are multilingual are greatly needed. United Way of Snohomish County will operate the free tax preparation program at six sites throughout Snohomish County from Jan. 22 to April 15, 2013. In addition to the site in Marysville, there will be three sites in Everett and one each in Monroe and Lynnwood. The program is designed to help working families prepare their income tax forms for free, raising awareness about the Earned Income Tax Credit, child care and other available tax credits, while avoiding fees associated with for-profit tax preparers. At the free tax preparation sites, customers will also be able to sign up for public benefits and learn about opportunities to make the most of their tax refunds. The free tax preparation program will also provide taxpayers with information about asset building resources such as credit counseling, savings bonds and health care options. In 2012, 96 volunteers dedicated more than 5,100 hours to United Way of Snohomish County’s free tax preparation program. Volunteers prepared 2,511 tax returns and helped families claim more than $4.28 million in federal refunds, including nearly $1.3 million in Earned Income Tax Credits. In all, United Way volunteers saved customers an estimated $414,000 in tax preparation fees. For more information, please visit and click on “volunteer.” The volunteer registration deadline is Nov. 30. Training will take place in December and January. Each volunteer will be asked to contribute three to six hours a week of their time.

Arlington prepares for post season BY LAUREN SALCEDO

BOTHELL — The Arlington football team suffered a close 28-21 loss in a non-league contest on Thursday, Oct. 18, to Inglemoor at Pop Keeney Stadium, their last regular season game of the year, and head now to the district playoffs where they face some fierce competition. The outcome of the Oct. 18 game could have gone either way as Arlington started off strong on the offense, with quarterback Skylor Elgarico scoring on a 1-yard touchdown run on their first drive to put the Eagles in the lead at the end of the first quarter. Inglemoor scored on a two-yard pass, tying the game until Arlington’s Max Gray completed an impressive 79-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the second quarter. Inglemoor managed another touchdown before halftime, as did the Eagles, with another Elgarico run to keep them in the lead 21-14 going into halftime. The problem for the Eagles came in the second half when they failed to put any more points on the board, and Inglemoor’s offense got in another two touchdowns to clinch the victory. Going into the next couple of weeks of postseason play, the Eagles are preparing the only way they can. “We just watch film and get ready, I don’t know what else we can do,” said head coach Greg Dailer. “We are playing well, so it’s frustrating for the kids because we’ve lost the last few games.” As far as their close loss to Inglemoor is concerned, Dailer believes that his offense needed to be there a little more in the second half. “I think they played a lot better on defense and we didn’t really execute on the offense,” he said. There is still potential for the Eagles to advance, as they sit in the No. 3 spot in the league, with the top four teams heading to playoffs. “I think we have some really great kids, good leaders. I think the seniors are disappointed at the last few losses, but you know a handful of plays going the other way and we could have been No. 1 in the league. They understand that they have to play better and I think they’ll be focused.”

AHS cross country heads to districts BY LAUREN SALCEDO

MARYSVILLE — Arlington’s team of cross country runners has been out-performing even themselves this season and came away successful in the Wesco 3A/4A Cross Country Championships at Cedarcrest in Marysville on Oct. 18, with both the boys and girls varsity teams advancing to the 4A Bi-District Meet at Lakewood on Saturday, Oct. 27. The varsity girls team of Cassidy Rude, Emma Janousek, Gracie Castandeda, CJ Taylor, Rosalie Boyle, Karissa Swain and Rachael Fleming placed fifth, while the varsity boys team of Jameson Wren, Austin Henderson, Coleman Cummings, Ben Comerford, Ivan Baez-Nolasco, Michael Barene and Peiter Andrew placed seventh overall at the meet. “I am really pleased to say that both our boys and girls teams advanced to districts,” said head coach Mike Shierk. “Our number one and number two runners Emma Janousek and Cassidy Rude actually went the wrong way on the course for about 100 meters and had to turn around and start back where they went off, which added about 30 seconds to each of their times. Without getting lost they would have been in

fifth or sixth place.” The course was new to the girls, who are both first-year runners who had never competed at Cedarcrest before. “It happens all the time, even at the elite level,” said Shierk. “Regardless, they had great races. Gracie Castandeda, another freshman, did a great job as well. She improved on her personal record by 20 seconds. She was out sick on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, and came back and raced great. It’s really freshman power. We have been so blessed with the freshman that came in this year.” Rude finished in 12th place with a final time of 20:02.6, and Janousek finished in 13th place with a final time of 20:03.7. Castandeda took 17th place with a time of 20:18.7. Taylor took 38th place with a final time of 21:12.2, while Boyle and Swain took 44th and 45th with times of 21:24.4 and 21:25.3 respectively. Flemming came in 52nd place with a final time of 21:47.1. The varsity boys team finished in seventh place and also advances to districts. “Jameson Wren finished with a really impressive time, but I think he was disappointed because he was shooting for breaking 16,” said Shierk. “He has been nursing a hip injury, which

may have affected him. But everyone should be looking at him coming out next week and really turning it on.” Wren finished in 17th place with a final time of 16:29.4 and Henderson took 23rd place with a final time of 16:47.6. Cummings and Comerford took 48th and 50th places with times of 17:35.5 and 17:42.8 respectively. Baez-Nolasco came in 59th place with a final time of 18:05.5, while Barene and Andrew took 63rd and 64th places with times of 18:10.6 and 18:11 respectively. Other varsity girls performances include freshman Ashlynn Low who took 54th place with a final time of 21:57, sophomore Shanelle Shirey who took 57th place with a time of 22:14.3, and freshman Marie Gaudin who took 62nd place with a time of 22:30.9. Junior Katelyn Kazen took 67th place with a time of 22:32.1, while Katelyn James finished in 77th place with a time of 23:29.3, Shyne McKay finished in 78th place with a time of 23:30.5, Miranda Carr finished in 79th place with 23:31.5, and Cassidy Henderson finished in 80th place with a time of 23:42.3. Varsity boys performances also include Nicholas Taylor who finished 67th with a time of 18:22.7, Zachary Cushman who finished 71st with a time of

Arlington spikers fall to Lake Stevens BY LAUREN SALCEDO

Arlington’s Shelby Shackelford serves during the second set of the team’s Oct. 18 game against Lake Stevens High School.

LAKE STEVENS — It’s the last week of regular season competition for the Lady Eagles volleyball team, which lost 3-1 to the Lake Stevens Vikings on Thursday, Oct. 18, and they’re aiming to finish strong. The season was a struggle for the team that, as of press time, had only two overall wins and one in-league victory. On Oct. 18, at Lake Stevens High School, the Eagles kept their heads high and battled to the end, despite the fierce competition they faced — the Vikings are ranked No. 2 in the division and are tied in overall wins with Monroe, the Wesco North 4A division leader. It would have been easy for the athletes to give up after the second set loss, with the

first going to Lake Stevens at 25-17 and the second at 25-15, but the team stayed in it through the third, to take a win in a close 27-25 set. Junior outside hitter Brooke Johnson helped score 14 points overall, finishing the game with 10 kills and four aces, while sophomore outside hitter Audrey Frolich finished with 15 kills. Despite the offensive strength of the Eagles, they lost their final set to the Vikings in a 25-12 defeat. The team heads now to face Monroe, the division leader, in a home game on Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. Depending on the success of the their Oct. 22 and Oct. 24 games, the team will head to the District 1 playoffs at Snohomish High School at 5 p.m. on Oct. 30.

in 24:35, Erin Delaney in 25:31, Taylor Olson in 25:54 and Elizabeth Kern in 28:11. JV boys results included Nathan Beamer in 18:01, Cody Duran in 18:41, Bryce Thomas in 19:31, E.J. Adcock in 19:58, Ryan Konecny in 20:02, David Balyko in 20:23, Zach Larson in 20:50, Jose Garcia in 21:12, Ethan Rowe in 21:26, Will Roundy in 21:45, William Schamp in 22:11, Paul Kern in 22:18, Tyler Sullivan in 22:19, Lucas Owen in 23:44, Mark Mason

in 24:10, Sean Rowe 24:53 and Quinn James in 25:25. “We are trying to get to state, so we are still training really hard,” said Shierk. “The boys ran about 53 miles last week. This meet was interesting because the top 15 runners were placed in varsity and the rest competed at JV. Normally, it’s only the top seven, so it was a battle. They were really going for it, they want to go to the post season. It was really fun to watch.” The success of the relatively young team has been inspiring for Shierk.

“We are so excited about these younger kids. They have been awesome,” he said. “We have great team captains and they are really helping the bring up the other kids. We see a lot of potential in these athletes that we haven’t seen in a long time.” Arlington Cross Country heads now to the 4A Bi-District meet at Lakewood High School on Oct. 27. If they place in the top five teams, or top 25 individuals, then they can advance to the State Championships on Saturday, Nov. 3, in Pasco.

ARLINGTON — A 16-year-old Arlington boy was home caring for his 11-year-old brother on Monday, Oct. 15, when a stranger rang the doorbell around mid-morning. Since the boys didn’t know the man, they didn’t answer, so the man at the door went around to the back of the house and kicked in that door. The two boys fled to their parents’ master bathroom and called 911, while the burglar made his way through the house to the bathroom where the boys were hiding. When the burglar saw the boys, he fled the house, limping as he ran. At least seven Snohomish County Sheriff ’s deputies, two police chiefs, a precinct captain and a canine unit arrived in the area. Deputies and the canine unit tracked the suspect through knee-high wet grass and creeks before finally capturing him a quarter-mile away. The two boys positively identified the suspect as the same man who confronted them in their parents’ bathroom, and deputies credited the boys with doing a good

ARLINGTON — The Arlington Farmers Market is commemorating a first with another first on the evening of Wednesday, Oct. 24. After tallying the votes in the fourth annual America’s Favorite Farmers Markets contest, American Farmland Trust named four farmers markets — one for each size category — as winners of their 2012 competition. The Arlington Farmers Market was named the winner of the “Small Markets” category of the summer-long contest, receiving 325 of the 5,266 votes cast in that category. To celebrate this win, the Arlington Farmers Market is staging its first-ever Harvest Dinner at 6 p.m. on Oct. 24 at 318 N. Olympic Ave. “Audrey [Houston] and Samantha [Schuller] worked very hard for the success of the Farmers Market, and due to their commitment,

they brought 600 to 1,000 people into downtown Arlington each Saturday of the Market,” said Arlington City Council member Debora Nelson, who also serves as a member of the Farmers Market Advisory Board. “This was good for all of our downtown businesses, and for the exposure of our wonderful downtown.” Houston explained that the Harvest Dinner has been scheduled in conjunction with “National Food Day,” and will kick off with Nelson and American Farmland Trust Regional Director Dennis Canty serving as guest speakers for the evening. Canty is slated to present the Farmers Market with a commemorative plaque. The Harvest Dinner itself promises to feature the culinary skills of Wild Rose Bistro and Catering in Arlington, since owner Debi Morgan has already agreed to provide the venue for it. “This will help us stretch

of tampering before children are allowed to eat them. Candy should be thrown away if the wrapper is faded or torn, or if the candy is unwrapped. n For adults expecting to see trick-or-treaters at the door, keep porch lights and exterior lights on, keep candlelit jack-o-lanterns clear of doorsteps and landings, and keep dogs and other pets away from doors so children will not become frightened. Parks officials also remind community members that all city parks are closed at dusk. These tips are courtesy of the city of Marysville, Marysville Police and Crime Prevention, and Marysville Fire District.

n Many accidents occur when motorists are backing vehicles out of driveways, unaware of the presence of small children. Costumes and Treats n Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and choose light colored costumes to improve visibility. n Choose face paint and make-up instead of masks, which can obstruct a child’s vision. Look for non-toxic designations when choosing Halloween makeup. n Avoid carrying sticks, swords, or other sharp objects. n Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights in order to see better, as well as to be seen by drivers. n Liquid in glow sticks is hazardous, so parents should remind children not to chew on or break them. n Check treats for signs



well as other people. n Cross only at street corners, never between parked cars, and never diagonally across an intersection. n Look in all directions before crossing the street, and obey all traffic signals. Walk — never run — across the street, and use sidewalks, not the street, for walking. n Do not accept rides from strangers. Drivers n Exercise extreme caution when driving a vehicle. Be on the alert for excited youngsters, who may move unpredictably darting out into traffic, and whose vision may be obscured. n Anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the day so you can spot children from greater distances. n Drive slowly and be alert to small children crossing streets.

Here are some Halloween safety tips for families and community members who get into the spirit of Halloween. Parents and children n Children under 12 should trick-or-treat and cross streets with an adult. n Set a time limit for your children to “trick-or-treat,” and designate a specific route for them to take if they are old enough to trick-or-treat without your supervision. n Never trick-or-treat alone. Go with at least two friends for the entire evening. n Carry a lightweight flashlight and use it so drivers can see you and you can see hazards in the street as

MARYSVILLE — Volunteers will kick off the Marysville All-City Food Drive on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., to help neighbors in need this holiday season by collecting donations of money, food and unused toys. Volunteers from the city of Marysville, Marysville Fire District, Kiwanis and Lions clubs, Soroptimist International, Lakewood High School, Girl Scouts and other local youth groups will collect donations at various participating local grocers and retail stores. Hundreds of families have already registered to receive holiday baskets, and community support is the key to making the holidays bright for our local families, according to Marysville Community Food Bank officials. Volunteers will be located at the Fred Meyer, Albertsons, Grocery Outlet, Haggen, IGA and Safeway stores in Marysville and Smokey Point. Red barrels will be placed throughout the Marysville community starting Nov. 3 and will continue collecting food and toys throughout the holiday season. Donations can also be dropped off at the Marysville Community Food Bank, located at 4150 80th St. NE, behind St. Mary’s Catholic Church. For more information, contact Tara Mizell at 360-363-8404 or at tmizell@mar ysvillewa. gov. Volunteers for the toy store should contact JoAnn Moffit at 425-876-1010 or moffittbusichio@yahoo. com.
