Arlington celebrates Arbor Day BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

SPORTS: Mountain bikers take top spots at first race. Page 8

ARLINGTON — The pouring rain did little to dampen the spirits of volunteers at Jensen Park on Saturday, April 13, as they planted trees provided by Banksavers, celebrated the city of Arlington’s 11th year of being designated as a “Tree City USA” by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, and eventually came in from the cold to check out the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians’ cultural exhibits in the Kent Prairie Elementary gymnasium. “It’s actually a great day for a tree-planting because the roots will stay firmer if they’re wet,” said city of Arlington Stormwater Manager Bill Blake, as he noted the requirements for a city to be designated a

Tree City, including designating staff to care for trees, appointing a citizen tree board to advocate for community forestry, establishing a tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on tree care, and celebrating Arbor Day. “Sometimes I think we take our trees for granted,” said Arlington Mayor Pro Tem Marilyn Oertle, who was joined on site by fellow City Council member Randy Tendering. “Whenever I come back to Arlington, I’m struck by all the beautiful trees we have, and all the blessings they provide, including serving as homes for birds and other animals. Bill is an excellent manager of our trees, and we’re lucky to have a lot of dedicated people who make SEE ARBOR, PAGE 2

World War II veteran Leo Hymas looks at the Army Certificate of Appreciation for Patriotic Civilian Service that he received at the Marysville Armed Forces Reserve Center on April 13, in recognition of the stories that he’s shared about liberating Buchenwald 68 years ago.

MARYSVILLE — Leo Hymas was a 19-year-old infantryman in the U.S. Army when he took part in the liberation of the Nazi concentration camp Buchenwald on April 9, 1945. Hymas’ voice still quavered 68 years later, on April 13 in the Marysville Armed Forces Reserve Center, as he told the tale of what he saw that day, as part of the 364th Expeditionary Sustainment Command’s observance of the Holocaust Day of Remembrance. Before he had even reached Buchenwald, Hymas’ time in the service had been har-

rowing, as a small-town Idaho boy found himself drafted into World War II at the age of 18, in the years following the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, during which he’d seen gas and meat rationed, and the production of new tires and new cars halted completely. “My drill sergeant was the meanest man I’d ever met,” Hymas said. “I got so homesick. I missed my dad, my mom, my friends, even the cows on my farm. Unlike the guys I saw in uniform in my hometown, I didn’t even get to date a pretty girl, or an ugly one,” he added, drawing laughter from the SEE VETERAN, PAGE 2

crowd. To maintain operational security, Hymas wasn’t allowed to inform his family of his whereabouts, and when he sent letters home censors routinely blacked out certain passages. He became one of 7,000 troops on a Navy ship heading to Europe with 3,500 bunks, in which so many people

got seasick that the vomit was literally up to his ankles. “You’d just slide back and forth on the floor, and that smell,” Hymas said. “I thought to myself, I don’t want to do this, I’m just a kid.” As part of the 97th Infantry in Patton’s Third Army, Hymas was partnered with Jimmy DiMarco, a city boy from Boston whose accent initially

chafed Hymas’ countryboy sensibilities, but they soon became close friends as they fought across Germany, until DiMarco caught a round and died in front of Hymas. “He gave his life for me and all of you sitting here,” Hymas said. “If Hitler had won that war, he’d bragged that Nazis would walk the halls of Congress.” Hymas’ resolve to defeat the Nazis was further

strengthened when he saw a starving little girl on the streets, before he took part in the attack in Weimar, and all he could do was give her two pieces of chocolate. In Buchenwald itself, he smelled burning human flesh for the first time, a smell he couldn’t identify because he’d never smelled it before, just as he’d never imagined that concentration camps such as Buchenwald existed before he witnessed their horrors for himself. “I saw stacks of naked, rotting bodies, and collections of skin that had been turned into lampshades,” Hymas said. “I cannot tell you the evil we found.” Among Hymas’ discoveries were a host of SS officers who were changing into civilian clothes. For helping to capture 91 prisoners, he received the Bronze Star. “We overcame the worst evil we have any record of, but your enemies are spiritual in nature,” Hymas told the military members in the audience. “Your enemies include racism, and intolerance of others just because they’re different, but they are a challenge that you will overcome.” Before he received an Army Certificate of Appreciation for Patriotic Civilian Service, Hymas revealed that his uniform had finally gotten him a date with a pretty girl, and 65 years ago, he married her.

ARBOR FROM PAGE 1 things happen.” Stillaguamish Tribal Chair Shawn Yanity offered a blessing, echoed Oertle’s assessment of the importance of trees as habitat, and urged the younger volunteers in attendance to take the day’s experiences to heart. “It’s right that we show our appreciation for the gifts that surround us,” Yanity said, before turning to the young people. “It’s up to you to be the next champions to carry this forward because we won’t always be here. This is a testimonial to how much we’re taking ownership of our neighborhoods and taking care of our homelands because a lot of people don’t do that anymore. This park was the site of one of my people’s villages. We’re walking on my ancestral lands here, and the cedar we’re planting was essential to every aspect of our lives.” Sarah Nelson, education and outreach coordinator for Sound Salmon Solutions, explained how her group coordinated the efforts of the city, the Tribe, Banksavers, the Pilchuck Audubon Society, the Arlington Arts Council, Washington State University Extension’s Puget Sound Forest Stewardship, and their own “Tree Tenders” group to implement the tree-planting, which fol-

lowed a day of education on the psychological, physiological and cultural benefits of trees on Wednesday, April 10. “The two workshops and the tree-planting were covered by an urban forestry grant,” Nelson said. “At Pioneer Elementary, students performed an experiment to demonstrate to them how trees protect against erosion. We’re thankful for all of our partners in these projects because in our role as coordinators, we owe these projects’ successes to so many other groups.” Bill Pierce, a volunteer with Sound Salmon Solutions’ Tree Tenders, pointed out that Jensen Park’s new trees will help provide shade not only for an adjacent salmon-bearing stream, but also the homes bordering the park. “It’s up to all of us to build the world we want to live in,” said Pierce, who devotes half his time to conservation work now that he’s retired. “A world with trees is a world I want to live in.” “Cedar was our everything,” said Mercedes MacCurdy, one of the members of the Stillaguamish Tribe who was showing visitors to the Kent Prairie Elementary gym how to weave the wood. “We lived off cedar. We made our homes, our clothes and our crafts from it. This is good medicine.”

Cascade Valley Hospital considers affiliation and Skagit counties, and have been conducting community forums to hear from the public what they think about proposals to affiliate with either the ProvidenceSwedish organization, PeaceHealth, the University of Washington Medical Center, Virginia Mason or MultiCare Health of Pierce County. The Rainier Conference Room at Cascade Valley Hospital served as the site for one such forum on April 10. “Before any such affiliation occurs, we need to make sure that our visions fit together,” said Jones, who noted that a number of attendees of the April 10 public forum, including a few Cascade Valley Hospital employees, expressed reservations about the fact that two of the potential affiliation partners are Catholic health systems that restrict certain services according to church doctrine. “These are credible citizens with very legitimate concerns. One of our nurses even said that we should be about science and not faith-healing.” The tentative deadline for these potential affiliation

partners to submit their request proposals is April 26, although Jones deemed that a flexible date. Jones likewise emphasized that the nature of any potential affiliation has yet to be determined, and could range from “a loose handshake agreement” to one organization buying out the others, although he conceded that any such arrangement would likely result in the loss of a certain measure of local control. “If none of those organizations meets our needs, then we’ll have to go with a Plan B, which we don’t have right now,” Jones said. If only one or two of them look attractive, it’ll still take at least a few months to sort things about. If they all look attractive, we’ll talk to each one. The bottom line is, it would almost take a miracle for this to get resolved in 2013. It’s more likely going to happen in 2014 or 2015, and yes, as the process progresses, we’ll be soliciting additional public input. People will have lots of questions, and we can’t answer of a lot of them right now.”

ARLINGTON — According to Cascade Valley Hospital and Clinics CEO Clark Jones, smaller hospitals such as Cascade Valley are facing an uphill battle to stay in business if they don’t affiliate themselves with larger health care systems. “Like fire departments and districts, affiliation could offer us cost savings to counteract decreased income and reimbursements, as well as increased expenses,” Jones said. “An additional concern for hospitals is that our whole system is changing. Firefighting isn’t going through a sea change right now, but health care is. We’ve been told that the costs are unsustainable and that Medicare’s insolvency is pending, but no one has done anything but talk so far.” While Jones declined to offer an opinion on the Affordable Care Act, he nonetheless predicted that it would result in Cascade Valley and other hospitals caring for more patients than ever before, “but with no more money for

it.” Likewise, while Jones identified three cost-cutting alternatives under the ACA — results-based reimbursements, electronic health records and accountable care organizations — he noted that each one comes with its own set of expenses, from the system of results reporting required by the resultbased reimbursements to the maintenance of even existing electronic health records systems, such as those that have already been established at Cascade Valley. “As for accountable care organizations, they’re larger networks of medical care providers and facilities offering whole spectrums of services,” Jones said. “What’s driving a potential affiliation is that Cascade Valley provides a relatively narrow band of services, and by affiliating with the Island and Skagit Valley hospitals as part of a much larger organization, we could achieve economies of scale and offer services that have never been available to our communities.” The three public hospitals serve contiguous geographic areas in Snohomish

Developing a Master Facilities Plan


group of Arlington Public Schools stakeholders including parents, community members and staff, will soon begin the process of developing a Master Facilities Plan (MFP). The MFP will be a comprehensive evaluation of our schools, support facilities, properties and major assets; enrollment trends; educational space needs; health and safety of our students, staff and public; and the needs of our community. The MFP will be used to advise the School Board of our current and future facility needs for the next decade. Arlington Public Schools operates nine schools: Arlington High School, Weston High School, Stillaguamish Valley School, Haller Middle School, Post Middle School, Kent Prairie Elementary, Eagle Creek Elementary, Presidents Elementary, and Pioneer Elementary. Other buildings included are three support facilities: District Office, Transportation, and Child Nutrition and Support Services. In addition, the District owns one closed school (Trafton Elementary), an aging wooden stadium (Hartz Field) and several parcels of land (mostly donated timberland). Weston High School and Transportation are two facilities currently leased from the Arlington Airport. The MFP team will use the expertise of architects, engineers and other professionals to guide them through the process of estimating costs, understanding building systems, evaluating facility concerns, and focusing on educational needs. The 2010

GUEST OPINION SID LOGAN Strategic Plan will guide the team’s work. The long range target most relevant to the MFP is No. 3: “Develop and implement practices that manage facilities and resources (both tangible and intangible) with efficiency and prudence.” With community support from passing a bond measure in 2000, great improvements have been made to our facilities in the past decade. Since 2002, the District has constructed two new elementary schools, a new high school, a new middle school using an existing gymnasium and music building, a new stadium and a performing arts center. During this same period, a larger building was leased and remodeled for Weston High School. Although our community’s children have greatly benefited from these wonderful new facilities, our older facilities have continued to age. Thus, much of the work of the MFP team will focus on our older buildings. One of the most critical issues will be developing and recommending next steps for Post Middle School. Post was constructed in 1981 (with one building added in 1993) and is a campus of four separate single-story buildings with covered walkways. Post is attended by 570 sixth, SEE LOGAN, PAGE 5

Apodment: The new word in real estate


he Snohomish City Council is turning thumbs-down on a proposal to develop compact housing units in an existing building. The units would be “apodments,” mimicking a trend toward minimum size rentals in Seattle and elsewhere. The Snohomish proposal calls for 20 units of 200 square feet each. With 15 proposals for new apodments in just one district of Seattle, the affordable little havens might pop up in suburbs — like Marysville and Arlington. What’s an acceptable definition for apodments? San Francisco set a limit of 150 square feet per unit while New York is toying with 275 square feet. Which means there’s plenty of latitude to play with when defining what local apodments might be. Why the fuss over apodments? People live in hotel rooms and studio apartments that aren’t much bigger. Aging motels cater to long-

term residents so apodments are nothing new. What is new is that a growing need for affordable number is offsetting much of the discomfort of cramped quarters. In case you haven’t noticed, housing is trending away from McMansions. According to the Wall Street Journal, the 2007 average home of 2,500 square feet is expected to shrink to 2,152 by the year 2015. Scarcity of land is forcing homes into lots so small that lawns can be mowed with kitchen scissors and tenants can reach from windows to knock on neighbor’s walls. The rise of apodments is one more sign of 21st Century real

estate minification. Here are a few reasons: ■ Parents wanting grown children out from under their roofs. ■ Minimum wage-earners unable to afford $1,000 per month apartments. ■ Off-campus housing for students. ■ Cheap bases for business people in other cities. ■ Anyone suffering crippling financial reverses. ■ Anyone attempting to live on Social Security. ■ People opting for minimal consumption as a lifestyle. ■ People who can’t care for larger dwellings. ■ Temporary or transient workers. The definition of an apodment is still pretty fluid. Some have little more than a bed, a toilet and a sink SEE GRAEF, PAGE 5

Listening to happiness

hink about this — if someone were to ask you to name the single most profound sentence ever written in the English language, what would you say? I can only imagine the fascinating variety of responses we would come up with and the great conversations they would inspire. To kick things off, I’d like to share the sentence that gets my vote hands down. “We hold these truths to be selfevident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Not only did this statement provide the original justification for our existence as an independent nation, but it irrevocably linked us to all of humanity and provided

GUEST OPINION JIM STRICKLAND the philosophical foundation for democracy itself. And what is more, this sentence did something that we tend to lose sight of in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives — it enshrined the pursuit of happiness as a natural aspiration that deserves protection as a fundamental human right. Why is happiness so important? Because happiness is a clue to how we are supposed to be living. Human beings have evolved emotions to help guide our behaviors in

the direction of survival and wellbeing. When we take emotions like happiness seriously, we are listening to wisdom that has been built into our species over millions of years. We ignore happiness at the peril of our very existence. A good example of the way our emotions provide clues to how we should live is noted in Bill McKibben’s book, Deep Economy. McKibben asks “Why do people so often look back on their college days as the best years of their lives? Usually, it’s not because their classes were so fascinating. More important is the fact that they lived more closely and intensely in a community than ever before or since (college is the four years in an American life when we live roughly SEE STRICKLAND, PAGE 5

GRAEF FROM PAGE 4 and shower. Cooking and laundry may be in the unit or consigned to common areas. Storage and parking will remain the big issues. Apodments are much the same as what were known as efficiency units. Floor plans and amenities can be similar to what’s found in Seattle’s posh Hearthstone retirement community. Some are just well-equipped motel rooms. While they work well for single residents, couples would need storage lockers for bikes, golf clubs, seasonal clothing and miscellaneous sports and hobby stuff. High ceilings would encourage overhead storage. This trend toward

minimal housing is a timely movement that serves economic realities of a growing segment of society. With the bottom 50 percent in America’s economy holding only 2.5 percent of the nation’s wealth, most can’t afford traditional homes. If apodments can provide the basics while keeping them from sinking further into debt, then so be it. Unlike their parents’ generation, most young families don’t see five-acre suburban estates as attractive. Prevailing wages fail to qualify many as buyers or renters of traditional housing. With so much of the nation’s income tied up by so few, a large part of working America must have lowercost housing options.

LOGAN FROM PAGE 4 sixth, seventh and eighth grade students. Among the several systems that are in need of immediate improvement at Post are heating and ventilation, roofing, campus security and technology infrastructure. The MFP team will be tackling needs and issues with other older buildings including heating and ventilation, aging classroom and gymnasium flooring, paving, technology infrastructure and roof replacements. Our newer facilities also have needs that the MFP will address. Many community members have expressed an interest in installing artificial turf at John Larson Stadium. Such an improvement would allow for greater use of this facility while providing additional safety for our athletes. As programs change, the educational needs of our facilities also change. Such is the case with our drama program and our set construction classes, which would benefit greatly from additional

Mobility figures into this. When Boeing cuts 800 jobs in Everett, as it has announced it will, a few in that 800 will find work in other cities while families remain behind. Where will the travelers live? How might families afford two homes if not for something like an apodment? The trend poses a task for city planners. They need to develop minimal guidelines for dwelling units. Hopefully, municipal codes will lean hard on safety and community issues and tread lightly on size. Need for squarefootage varies. While society’s recluses might find life complete within 100 square feet, socially inclined people could feel cramped in 250 square feet. Different strokes

shop space. District staff have been maintaining and improving all of our facilities with the funding that has been available. In the past decade, the District has made significant improvements to lighting systems to improve illumination while reducing consumption as well as installing and updating technology infrastructure to support our classrooms. During this same time, we have been busy replacing boilers, sidewalks, gutters and siding, while constantly performing routine maintenance. Our Master Facilities Planning team will begin work April 2013 with the goal of making recommendations to the School Board in early 2014. If you have any questions or comments regarding this process or our facilities, please contact me.

Patrick Ray Hill (Ricky-Ray) September 5, 1950 — February 8, 2013

Pat r ick Ray Hill (Ricky-Ray), passed away on February 8th, 2013 at Providence Everett Medical Center from complications associated with diabetes. He was 62 years of age, and resided in Marysville, WA. Patrick was born on September 5th, 1950 in Stuttgart-Bad Constatt, Germany to Basil and Gladys Hill. He married Patricia Irvin on December 18, 1981 in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho. He proudly served in the U.S. Army for 20 years. During that time he deployed to Vietnam for two tours, earning both the Vietnam Service and Campaign medals. Subsequently, he served in the National Guard as a heavy equipment operator and an M1A1 Abrams Tank gunner. He then worked for the mass transit company First Transit for 20 years, where he also served as a union

representative. Patrick was a dreamer, and had a plethora of hobbies to include RC planes, gunsmithing, reading and watching science fiction, participating in the Highland Games in Seattle, and astronomy. He planned on moving to Arizona with the hopes of living near the Kitt

Peak Observatory, but never made it. He had a magnetic personality, and his desire to live and experience life was infectious. Patrick was survived by his wife Patricia (Marysville, WA), his daughter Chandra and her husband James Neils (Hauser Lake, ID), his son John and his wife Samantha Hill (Wilmington, NC), Patricia’s daughter Danielle Buettner, and her son Michael and his wife Michelle Irvin. He was also survived by his grandsons Clayton Hill, Walter and William Neils, and his sister, Vicki Hill. He was further survived by Patricia’s grandchildren, Haley Henderson, Michael Jr. and Christopher Irvin, Kenneth and Devin Buettner, and great granddaughter Keira. Patrick’s interment will be held at the Medical Lake National Veterans Cemetery at a date and time to be determined. For more information, please send emails to: rickyray121881@

for different folks. Again, the sticky issue is parking. Parking is an issue where neighbors to the Snohomish project might have a legitimate gripe. The proposal would have 25 living units in a property that wasn’t designed to host 25 or more cars, creating a prescription for overnight parkers clogging street-sides. For some decades, low income workers employed in city cores found affordable

housing in the hinterland. Cheap gas and a slot in a trailer park in Sultan or Fall City made it work. Trouble is, gas got expensive and trailer parks were sold to become suburban estates. And now, certain downtown properties lacking that highrollers’ need for image pizzazz lie vacant, creating an opportunity for developers of low-income rentals. Until our economy gets straightened out, this

STRICKLAND FROM PAGE 4 as we’ve evolved to live).” I suppose evolution never considered the rising costs of a college education, but you get the idea. When something feels right, there is usually a good reason. So what does this mean for how we set priorities in our society? In his TED Talk on The Happy Planet Index, Nic Marks makes a compelling case that GDP is a misleading and grossly inadequate indicator of progress that fails to tell us much about quality of life for the average person. He quotes Robert Kennedy in saying that “The gross national product measures everything except that which makes life worthwhile.” Marks goes on to suggest we put some thought into designing a new national accounting system based on such important factors as social justice, sustainability, and people’s happiness and wellbeing. His company, the New Economics Foundation, is doing just that. This got me thinking about how we measure success in education. Sure, test scores have their place. But do they tell us


could be a win-win situation. Workers could swap far-flung cheap housing for cheap housing near their jobs, cutting the number of commuters. Homelessness might be reduced. Abandoned buildings would find a new use—if only the problem of parking could be solved. Comments may be addressed to robertgraef@

everything we need to know — namely, are our children learning what makes life worthwhile? Are we paying attention to the emotional indicators that help our children tell the difference between what is of lasting value and what is not? Are we teaching them to trust their own inner voice, or are we demanding that they ignore this intuitive wisdom in the service of someone else’s agenda? When was the last time we asked students if they were really happy — and actually listened to them? No, our emotions are not infallible guides, but they are guides nonetheless. They are clues to how we find lives worth living and work worth doing. In helping our children responsibly define and pursue happiness, both for themselves and others, we are teaching them a truth so fundamental and profound as to have been declared self-evident. Our schools, and our community, must create the conditions that make this pursuit possible. Jim Strickland lives with his family in Marysville and teaches at MarysvillePilchuck High School.

Walk MS raises awareness, funds


TULALIP — As rain, wind and chilly temperatures plagued Western Washington on Saturday, April 13, hundreds of participants from around Snohomish County withstood the weather to complete the Walk MS, in support of those with multiple sclerosis — a disease which, like rain, is more prevalent in the Pacific Northwest. Mitzi Ahles, of Arlington, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a disease that attacks the central nervous system, more than two years ago. “When I got the diagnosis, it was heartbreaking. But I figured it’s better than something that is going to kill me in three months,” said Ahles, who is the mother of a 3-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl. “I can live with it. I’ve been pretty lucky. My thinking and try-

ing to get my words out is the hardest part, and the fatigue. But I haven’t had any vision problems and that’s what I went in for, so that’s good.” On April 13, she and 63 team members with orange shirts emblazoned with the name “Lumpy Bruisers” walked a circuit around the Seattle Premium Outlets in Tulalip. “This is my second year doing the walk,” said Ahles. “Last year we raised $1,250. My goal for this year was $1,000. So far we are at $2,800.” The Lumpy Bruisers received an award for having the largest team of the day. “Last year we had 35 team members and this year we had 63,” she said. “It’s exciting getting everybody together, and having fun and walking for the cure. Between this year and last year, I think because of the weather we might not have as many

people, but we’ve got to walk, and I am excited I got so many people and raised so much over goal.” The National MS Society hosted seven walks across the state of Washington on April 13, and another in Seattle on April 14. “Our fundraising goal is $2 million total for the eight walks throughout Washington,” said Jessica Kurtz of the National MS Society. “The pledge deadline is May 6, so people can keep bringing in donations until then.” Kurtz hoped that the Walk MS would raise awareness in the community. “This is great event for people living with MS to come out and see how many people support them. People are just so excited to see all the encouragement, and it makes them feel really good.” For more information on the Walk MS or to donate email

This event is free and open to the public, and includes a complimentary continental breakfast and lunch. Walk-ins are welcome, or you can register at Brown Paper Tickets.

Mountain bikers take top spots at first race BY LAUREN SALCEDO

STEILACOOM — The Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance Washington Student League held its first high school mountain bike race on Sunday, April 7, in Fort Steilacoom Park and 12 teams of middle and high school students from across the state competed, including those from Arlington and Lakewood. The Arlington Composite team and the Lakewood High School team sent nine racers to the event, and the Arlington Middle School mountain bikers sent two to compete in the state’s firstever middle school race. “The riders did well, and out of the 11 racing for our area teams, four podiumed,” said coach Heidi Klippert. Students raced around Waughop Lake, with each lap being nearly five miles with approximately 350 feet of elevation gain per lap. “Unfortunately the traditionally lush ‘swoopy’ Steilacoom single track trails turned soupy as the racers competed in extremely muddy and cold conditions.” The race included a first place finish by Elle Lee, a Stillaguamish Valley sophomore racing on the Arlington team. She won a

medal and took home the Leader’s jacket to wear at the next race. “We were really excited that Elle got first. She is very focused. She felt really good after the race. She knew she had it in her and she wasn’t burnt out,” said Klippert. “She is very focused and has been working very hard on her technique, and it all came together. “ “The hill climb was like pedaling uphill through four to six inches of mud in a stream bed,” said Matt Roebke, a junior at Lakewood. Roebke placed sixth in the beginner boys’ category in his first bike race ever. Other boys competing in the beginner category included first-time racers Glen Gamboa, a sophomore at Arlington, and Charles Davis, a sophomore at Lakewood. Gamboa finished seventh, but Davis was unable to complete the race due to bike mechanical issues. Racing for intermediate boys were Gavin Sitter, a sophomore on the Lakewood team, and Sam Oakes, a Burlington Edison sophomore on the Arlington Composite team. Out of 27 racers in the biggest category of the day, Oakes placed 10th and Sitter made it to the podium with a fourth-

place finish, completing two laps in under 57 minutes. The Arlington team’s one junior varsity boy racer, Chris Nelson, was unable to complete the race due to mechanical issues on his bike as well. In girls’ racing action, the teams had two girls competing in the beginner category. Dana Arenz, a junior at Lakewood, placed fifth in her first ever mountain bike race, in spite of losing her rear brakes during the first lap. Kayla Lampert made it to the podium for the Arlington team with a third-place finish. “The middle schoolers from Arlington raced strong as well, with eighth grader Tagan Walker placing ninth and seventh grader Hallie Williams earning her spot on the podium with a thirdplace finish,” said Klippert. “Having Hallie take third in the middle school race was awesome, because we are seeing such great potential.” Riders and coaches are looking forward to several upcoming events, including a Trail Work day, a movie screening fundraiser with the Lincoln Theatre in Mount Vernon of ‘Where the Trail Ends’ on May 3, and, of course, their next race — the Battle of the Bases, April 28, in Olympia at Joint

Cougars impress at Pasco, Solberg BY LAUREN SALCEDO

PASCO — Cougar athletes made a trip to Eastern Washington on Saturday, April 13, to compete in the largest one-day high school track and field meet in the nation. “There are teams from all over — Washington, Oregon, Idaho — and the standards are very stiff to get in,” said Lakewood coach Jeff Sowards. “You go to a meet like that to prepare for the state meet.” The Pasco Invitational drew more than 100 schools from Washington, Oregon and Idaho, and Lakewood qualified 20 athletes for the event. The boys distance medley team of Preston Davis, Drew Cabales, Douglas Davis and Alex Cooper took sixth place with a time of 11:02.47. Senior Ariel Jensen took eighth place in the girls 400-meter race with a time of 59.76. Junior Tristan Nelson took 13th place in the boys discus with a throw of 137-04. Junior Skylar Cannon took 15th place in the girls javelin with a final throw of 109-05. Junior Andrew Stich took 15th place in the 300-meter hurdles with a time of 41.64.

The girls distance medley team of Britney Albro, Stephanie Smith, Darby Throndsen and Rachel Sowards took 16th place with a time of 13:57.32. Sophomore Brett Bustad took 29th place in the boys triple jump with a distance of 39-11.5. Senior David Otte took 30th place in the boys shot put with a final distance of 43-1.5. Junior Mitchell Darrah took 41st place in the 3,200-meter race with a final time of 10:21.73. DeAsia Callanan took 43rd place in the girls long jump with a final distance of 13-03. Freshman Josh Dickey took 32nd place in the 100-meter preliminaries with a time of 12.05. The runners at Lakewood High School broke two school records and set many personal ones at the Birger Solberg Invitational, at the Civic Field Athletic Complex in Bellingham on April 6, a week before the Pasco Invitational. “We had 60 kids that competed and they all did really well,” said Sowards. “We had two school records broken. One was Ellen Knowles, who broke the record in the 2,000-meter steeplechase, and Ariel Jensen, who broke the record in the 800-meter.”

Sahlbergs celebrate 67th anniversary

ARLINGTON — On March 31, Bob and Mary Jean Sahlberg celebrated an already notable wedding anniversary in style at the Regency Care Center, thanks to the Bistro San Martin. Bob and Mary Jean grew

up just a few blocks away from each other in Twin Falls, Idaho, where they became high school sweethearts. Although they both graduated in 1940 and went on to the University of Idaho together, Bob’s years overseas in the U.S. Navy, as well as Mary Jean’s work in the shipyards of Seattle and

on aircraft in Los Angeles, kept them from getting back together, until they got married on March 31, 1946, 67 years ago. “She was the prettiest girl at our high school, I thought,” said Bob Sahlberg, who recalled there being between 300-400 girls at that school. “After a couple of dates, I just kind of knew that this was my soulmate,” said Mary Jean Sahlberg, who agreed with Bob that they met at a high school dance, although they differ a bit in their recollections of how they got engaged. “Didn’t Mary Jean propose to you?” asked Molly Weiland, the activities director at the Regency Care Center in Arlington, where the Sahlbergs now reside. “It was a mutual agreement,” Bob Sahlberg said. Indeed, Mary Jean characterized their marriage as

a bond built on their shared loves and agreements on most matters. While Mary Jean complimented Bob as “a good provider with good habits,” which was important when they were raising two daughters on a small salary, Bob praised Mary Jean as “a good cook, an excellent mother and a great swimmer,” the latter of which played no small part in Mary Jean making history as the first female lifeguard ever in Twin Falls. After Bob’s more than four years in the fleet, during which time he managed to get promoted from the enlisted ranks to lieutenant junior grade by the time he got out, he embarked on a 40-year career as a paint salesman, 34 of which were spent with Dutch Boy before it was bought out by Sherwin-Williams, whom he continued to work for the next six years.

Bob and Mary Jean Sahlberg recently rang in 67 years as a married couple at the Regency Care Center in Arlington. “I started out a rookie salesman in Olympia and retired as the West Coast sales manager,” Bob Sahlberg said. The Sahlbergs not only have two daughters, Nancy Hammer of Marysville and Linda Gagnier of Kirkland,

but also seven grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. On March 31, the Bistro San Martin helped the Regency Care Center commemorate the couple’s 67 years of marriage with steak and lobster dinners.

Firefighters invite community to pancake breakfast

ARLINGTON — The North County Firefighters Association is once again inviting the community to its pancake breakfast, which kicks off this year on Sunday, April 28. “We do this every year and attempt to tie it in with opening weekend of fishing,” said Robert Freedman of the North County Firefighters Association.

Although the firefighters organize the annual event as a fundraiser, Freedman said, “If we break even, we’re happy,” because the firefighters enjoy affording the community an opportunity to share some breakfast together at Fire Station 90, with all of the fire engines, medical units and aid cars on display. “As taxpayers, it’s their station,

not ours,” Freedman said. “The public is welcome to climb onto the vehicles and ask any questions they like.” In addition to the breakfast, the firefighters make a point of providing the public with information about home safety, storm preparedness and smoke detectors. “This is just a nice, easy way

to say hello to our community, and to welcome them all into our home,” Freedman said. The pancake breakfast runs from 6-11 a.m. on Sunday, April 29, at Fire Station 90, located at 3002 252nd St. NE in Arlington. Donations will be accepted for plates of pancakes, ham, eggs, and biscuits and gravy, and cups of milk, juice and coffee.

Kids get hands-on education in forensics at Arlington Library BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

ARLINGTON — The Arlington Library offered children and teens the opportunity to spend their spring break learning the

sorts of skills they normally only see on primetime TV crime dramas, through a free weeklong “Forensic Detective Academy” April 1-5, courtesy of the Friends of the Arlington Library. Jocelyn Redel and Lesla

Ojeda, respectively the teens’ and children’s services librarians for the Arlington Library, drew the curriculum for the academy from online resources, and chose it because it offered lessons and activities that connect well to a relatively broad range of young people, with each day devoted to a different topic. Monday covered fingerprinting, Tuesday went over chromatography and handwriting analysis, Wednesday addressed casting tread patterns, and Thursday wrapped up the subjects with spitball ballistics and blood splatter analysis. Friday was set aside for a “Super-Secret Clue Pizza Party,” open to any young attendee who had come to at least one of those four days of the academy. “Not only is it popular with the kids, but it allows them to explore various ideas, in a much different setting from a classroom,” Redel said. “They get a good grounding in rudimentary science and technology, but they also have to be creative and solve problems. They’ve been fascinated by the whole process, and by learning how and why everything works.” Just as Redel reported that the students on April 1 were fascinated by the idea that even family members have different fingerprints, so too did the students on April 3 apply their best deductive reasoning skills to figuring out which shoes could have created certain sets of plaster casts of footprints that Ojeda had made before the day’s exercise. “It’s a nice break from spring break,” said Lynn Urionaguena, who took her three children to the academy. “My kids love it because we all watch CSI and NCIS. They got to figure out which pens were used to make ransom notes and do handwriting analysis.” “It’s just been fun and awesome,” said Lori Thompson, whose daughters Chloe and Olivia made their own plaster casts of footprints right outside of the Arlington Library. “They get to do new stuff that’s out of the ordinary, and I like that it gets them excited about going outdoors and getting a little dirty, rather than just staying inside. I wanted to get in on doing some of these activities too,” she laughed. 625024
