ARLINGTON — The summer robotics day camp at Arlington High School followed its debut last summer with a new set of advanced classes to accompany the basic classes it had already offered in the computer-aided design and wood-shop building behind the main AHS building, and the advanced classes that ran from July 15-17 saw the return of not only several elementary and middle school students from last year, but also a student mentor who’s no longer a student at AHS. Dan Radion, the former president of the AHS NeoBots Team who graduated last year, joined this year’s president Caroline Vogl and seven other student mentors in guiding 32 elementary and middle

school students through their first full-fledged robotics competition. “Last year, the kids could get competitive about which teams of two could build their robots faster, but this year was the first time we pitted their robots against each other,” said Vogl, who described the competition as a sort of sumo wrestling match in which each robot would try to push another out of a ring, whose boundaries the robots recognized through light sensors. “What’s cool about having Dan here is that he designed the curriculum for both the basic and the advanced classes.” “The robots that have succeeded have been the ones with good frames, low centers of gravity and ramps to push the others,” SEE CAMP, PAGE 2

Arlington Fire Chief Bruce Stedman has urged attendees of previous Arlington City Council meetings to attend the special City Council meeting on July 31 to discuss the regionalization of fire and EMS.

ARLINGTON — Arlington Fire Chief Bruce Stedman is inviting the community to attend a special meeting of the Arlington City Council to discuss the results of a study that was commissioned to explore how fire and emergency medical services in North Snohomish County might work together in the future. The Byrnes Performing Arts Center at Arlington High School will serve as the site of the special City Council meeting on Wednesday, July 31, starting at 6 p.m. Firefighters from Arlington, Arlington Heights, Silvana, Lakewood, Marysville, Getchell and Tulalip Bay were among those rep-

resenting 14 fire districts at a previous special meeting at the PAC on Aug. 30 of last year to discuss the future of fire and EMS in Arlington and North Snohomish County as a whole. The Arlington City Council voted unanimously on Dec. 17 of last year for the city of Arlington to take part in the joint regional fire services cooperative effort study, along with half a dozen other agencies, following Stedman’s recommendation of the proposed study by ESCI, an international consulting firm that specializes in emergency services cooperative effort studies. The goal of the study was to identify critical issues facing Arlington and other agencies in their ongoing mission to provide fire and emergency medi-

cal services to their citizens. To that end, the study has focused on Arlington and other fire and EMS agencies’ current service levels, strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for cooperative efforts with regional agencies. “At this point, the seven fire chiefs are confirming facts in the report and will be returning the document to ESCI on July 24,” Stedman said. “I don’t think it would be appropriate to share what’s in the report until after the policy makers have had a chance to see it, which will be on July 31.” The Arlington and Arlington Rural fire and EMS agencies were joined in participating in this study SEE FIRE, PAGE 2

MicroGreen Polymers right here in Arlington.” Radion and Vogl agreed that the summer robotics day camp should be continually tailored to suit the students’ needs, with Vogl suggesting that next year’s camp might include an intermediate level between the basic and advanced classes, or perhaps an extended advanced class. At the same time that they strive to incorporate the feedback of the students who do take part in the camp, they’re also hoping to reach out to more kids who might not know about it yet. Edward Radion, Dan’s younger brother, is the youngest AHS NeoBots Team officer, and the fresh-

man is serving as Vogl’s understudy in public relations. “We put out two videos a day during our class days, one each for our morning and afternoon classes,” Edward Radion said. “We don’t want to close ourselves off from the community.” The AHS NeoBots Team is also looking for sponsors to help support the summer robotics day camp, since this year’s camp saw the team paying hundreds of dollars out of pocket for T-shirts for their students. Still, as long as they can foster in younger kids the lessons that they themselves learned through their FIRST Robotics competitions, they consider the exercise worthwhile.

“What FIRST Robotics teaches you is gracious professionalism and ‘cooperatition,’ or cooperative competition,” Dan Radion said. “Your goal is to be the best, but you’re not out to bring down others. You help out opposing teams. We really push that philosophy, especially since younger kids can get really competitive.” “Nobody got upset when they lost,” Vogl said, echoing Radion’s reports that the students congratulated one another for their efforts. “I’m happy that the Arlington School District has already integrated robotics so heavily into its curriculum for the elementary and middle schools, and with any luck, we’ll be

able to spread it even further for those kids who still don’t have access to it.” Mark Ehrhardt, director of technology for the Arlington School District, believes that robotics could become a program, like football and other school sports, that students are able to pursue from elementary and middle school on up through high school. He also praised the AHS NeoBots Team for running the summer robotics day camps largely on their own. “They wrote all the curriculum, designed and built all the courses, set everything up and taught all the lessons,” Ehrhardt said. “This is an almost entirely student-run enterprise.”


sive $14,018.41 price tag that Arlington would have had to pay if the North County Regional Fire Authority had not taken part. “The formula for how much each agency paid was based on its population, square miles and assessed property value, which seems to be the fairest way to do it. I’m personally delighted with these numbers. I would have thought that the amount we would have to pay would be much higher.” ESCI developed a work plan and scheduled site visits with all the participating

agencies in time for all of their contracts to be signed on Jan. 15 of this year, at which point ESCI issued agency information request forms to all its clients. From there, ESCI began its site visits on Feb. 15, and had forecast that it would complete its feasibility study by Aug. 15. “A summer time frame for a study like this is very prompt,” Johnson said. The Byrnes Performing Arts Center is located at 18821 Crown Ridge Blvd. in Arlington, and doors open at 5 p.m. for the July 31 meeting.

Everett Clinic hosts international visitors

SMOKEY POINT — With as controversial as certain aspects of health care have become in the United States, it might be surprising to some to hear a distinguished group of medical professionals from overseas say that they need to consider more of an American approach to health care in their own country, but the members of a University Hospital Zurich study tour told The Marysville Globe and The Arlington Times exactly that during their July 16 visit to the Everett Clinic in Smokey Point. The University Hospital Zurich is one of the largest and most important teaching hospitals in Europe, and is already considering how it will invest approximately $3 billion for the reconstruction of its campus over the course of the next 15 years. To that end, several members of its leadership team visited the Everett Clinic’s Smokey Point Medical Center for what they saw as its efficiency, flexibility and patient-focused environment. Among the more vocal visitors with the press were Daniel Joseph Walker, managing partner of the Walker Project consultants to the University Hospital Zurich, and Peter Bodmer, delegate of the Zurich Government for the new University Hospital Zurich/BEKA Global Solutions. Walker noted that the study party had already toured through highly regarded hospitals in the Northeastern U.S., including Johns Hopkins in Maryland, in addition to

Virginia Mason in Seattle. “This is a good facility,” Walker said of the Smokey Point Medical Center. “Quality care depends a lot on quality processes. Shaky processes can lead to patient stress. The patient-centered approach here is good, and it’s translated through the architectural design of this facility.” Bodmer agreed with Walker that the University Hospital Zurich’s planned overhaul within its current limited real estate makes such streamlining essential, especially as they expect to incorporate new state-ofthe-art technologies into the revamped facility. “We have a university, a hospital and a technology center all in one area, in the middle of the town,” Bodmer said. “It’s like if Johns Hopkins and MIT were on the same campus. In our country, health care is seen as an art form, not a business, so we don’t tend

to talk about its costs as a business, but while we offer high-end medical care, that might not be the most efficient way of doing so. We’re sill a very federalist country, but we’re thinking more about strategy now, because not every hospital can do everything. We come here because we don’t want to have to reinvent the wheel. You understand what works and what doesn’t.” The Everett Clinic’s Smokey Point Medical Center had already drawn attention for its patientcentered design as one of 12 projects recently selected by the American Institute of Architects for its National Healthcare Design Awards, for providing comprehensive care in a single community location and reducing wait times for patients. “We were impressed by the beautiful facilities, and how they were designed to meet patients’ needs, and to optimize the flow of

patients, staff and logistics,” said Bruno Letsch, CEO of the Bienne General Hospital in Switzerland. “Even more impressed we were by the team spirit, and the way the management system is lived and transformed from the strategic level down to the front line.” The building has been touted for its use of space, which allows the Smokey Point Medical Center to make the most of lean workflow techniques. There are no waiting rooms, and blood draws and EKGs are brought to the patient in the exam room. The University Hospital Zurich study tour joined a steady stream of local healthcare providers and groups from other states

who have visited the facility to get ideas for their own clinics, including the University of Michigan and Nemours Clinics. “They see how the building design and established standard workflow supports an enhanced patient experience,” said Jon Sackett,

director of the Smokey Point Everett Clinic’s Improvement System, which works to improve workflow and reduce waste. “They also walk the patient visit process, and learn from Smokey Point staff and provider teams about what makes it successful.”

Cedar Grove cited for June odor violations


EVERETT — Another summer marks another set of complaints about the odors allegedly emanating from Cedar Grove Composting’s Smith Island facility, which was cited for two odor violations on June 6 and another two on June 25 by the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency. PSCAA spokesperson Joanne Todd explained that this makes 13 citations in the past five years for Cedar Grove at Smith Island, in addition to four written warnings within that time, although she also noted that the Smith Island composting plant had not received any citations for 2013 until the month of June. Susan Thoman, director of public affairs for Cedar Grove, added that these PSCAA notices of violation were the first for the Smith Island plant in three years, and reported that their onsite electronic odor monitoring data for June 6 “clearly contradicts” the PSCAA’s findings, by showing no detectable odors leaving the plant during the times cited by those notices. “We understand the community’s frustrations, and we care deeply about talking to people about them,” Thoman said. “We’ve begun a review of these findings and our data with Puget Sound Clean Air Agency officials, to try and resolve any disagreements.” As of Monday, July 22, Cedar Grove had yet to receive the two PSCAA violation notices for June 25, and thus, Thoman declined to comment upon them specifically. Todd acknowledged that Cedar Grove might not necessarily be subject to disciplinary action as a result of the PSCAA notices, especially since the company can choose to appeal them, but she also clarified that the odor complaints are independent from the agency’s ongoing odor study employing “e-noses” from Odotech similar to those already installed by Cedar Grove at Smith Island. “With complaints, the public calls in bad odors, and our inspectors work to trace those smells back from those residences to their sources,” Todd said. “The Odotech e-noses have nothing to do with those notices of violation. Cedar Grove owns their own e-noses, and we’ve installed a number of

e-noses in other locations to help scientifically identify the source of the odor that so many people in Marysville and North Everett have smelled, but we’re not using them for compliance.” Todd elaborated that the data from those 10 e-noses will be combined with observations from trained


area residents, meteorological factors and other information after the study wraps up, which Todd expects will occur around November of this year. “It’s going to give us a ton of data, which will take a lot longer than a month to go through,” Todd said. In the meantime, Thoman

relayed the number of positive comments she’s received from the community about Cedar Grove’s composting work, while urging the public to consider the other potential sources of the odor, and Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring reiterated his concerns about the PSCAA study.

“We were always opposed to the e-noses,” Nehring said. “Cedar Grove had a contract with Odotech before the study started, so we believed they would be a bit biased, and our Public Works Director Kevin Nielsen pointed out that the e-noses are not qualified to deal with compost because


they can only pick up very defined odors. We don’t have any illusions that the e-noses will say that Cedar Grove is the culprit behind the odor, but without even saying for certain where the odor is coming from, we just want it to away, and we think Cedar Grove could help out with that.”

Communities celebrate ‘Night Out Against Crime’

MARYSVILLE — The evening of Tuesday, Aug. 6, will see the annual “National Night Out Against Crime” return to the Arlington, Marysville and Tulalip communities. Residents of neighborhoods throughout Arlington are being asked to lock their doors, turn on their outside lights and spend the evening outdoors with their neighbors from 5-8 p.m. on Aug. 6. Many Arlington neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of special events, such as

block parties, cookouts, ice cream socials, potlucks and games. For further information on how to register for your own Arlington block party, contact Volunteer Coordinator Maxine Jenft 360-403-4673. The Marysville and Tulalip Tribal police departments, the Marysville Fire District and a number of other crime prevention officials are inviting area families to participate in their own “National Night Out Against Crime” from 6-8:30 p.m. on Aug. 6

at Comeford Park, located at 514 Delta Ave. in Marysville. This free event will feature a variety of information booths hosted by police, fire, and other partner agencies and organizations hosting booths or displays, to include the Tulalip Tribal Police, the Washington State Patrol, the state Department of Corrections, Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County and the Providence Intervention Center for Assault and Abuse.

Officers and departmental staff will share information about the K-9 unit, neighborhood watch program, Marysville Volunteer Program crime prevention efforts and more, with custody officers fingerprinting kids for child safety kits. Fire district staff will pass out hats, badges and safety literature, while sharing additional information about various fire prevention and personal safety programs. “Public safety personnel have put together a

great ‘Night Out’ this year, that will be fun and educational for the whole family,” Marysville Police Chief Rick Smith said. “Citizens and local community service organizations are important partners with police in making our community a safer place. The ‘National Night Out’ is our way of sharing the many benefits of crime prevention and personal safety programs available, that extend well beyond one night.” According to Smith, the focus this year is on young people, and on helping them make good choices to stay out of trouble. Participants including the YMCA of Marysville and the Marysville Skate Inn will be on hand to highlight programs and activities that create friendships, and help raise morale and self-esteem in youth. To further appeal to young people, this year’s event will feature vehicles sporting an

array of chrome and lights, not only from Marysville and Tulalip Tribal law enforcement, but also a K-9 unit, an armored personnel vehicle, a fire truck and an aid unit. New this year, Marysville’s Big Sticky Bar-B-Que will be cooking and serving up their barbecue at a discounted price. In addition, hot dogs and refreshments will be free and served by the Marysville Kiwanis Club, thanks to donations from Costco, Target and Bartell Drugs. The Marysville Community Food Bank’s shelves are unseasonably low on food, so canned food items and other donations are welcome.

Level 3 sex offender moves to Arlington

ARLINGTON — Local law enforcement agents are warning area residents that Paul Landis Gorden, a Level 3 sex offender, is moving into the 12700 block of Terrace Falls Road in Arlington. Gorden is a 34-year-old Caucasian man who stands 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighs 195 pounds, and has blue eyes and brown hair, although his head is shaved bald in the photo supplied by the Snohomish County Sheriff ’s Office. He also sports an

assortment of tattoos with racist themes. According to official documents, Gorden pled guilty in Skagit County Superior Court to the crimes of rape of a child in the third degree, communication with a minor for immoral purposes, and three counts of furnishing liquor to a minor. He was given a term of 60 months in prison on Jan. 14, 2010. In 2003, Gorden engaged in sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old T:4.8”

on at least six different occasions. This victim became pregnant, and the victim’s sister reported the crime to the police. He was given a term of 28 months from Whatcom County Superior Court for this crime. In 2001, Gorden engaged in sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old girl five to six times over the course of six weeks. The victim’s mother learned what had taken place, and the police were contacted. He was told to refrain from having sexual

contact with this victim. In spite of this warning, Gorden and the victim continued to have sexual contact, and San Juan County Superior Court gave Gorden a sentence of 20 months in prison. Gorden was found non-amenable for sex offender treatment, as he declined to enter the program. He also declined to enter treatment during his 2001 conviction. Gorden’s probation conditions are as follows:


■ He shall have no contact with minor females. ■ He shall not purchase, own, or have in his possession or under his control any firearm. Paul Landis Gorden ■ He shall not use, possess or consume any controlled substances without a lawfully issued prescription.

Local candidates vie for County Council District 1 BY LAUREN SALCEDO

Ballots are already arriving in Arlington and Marysville mailboxes for the Aug. 6 primary election, and five local men are running for the same seat — Snohomish County Council District 1. Gary Wright, Bill Blake, Carsten Mullin, Ken Klein and Sean Olson talked about what each of them hopes to work on if elected and what sets him apart from the others.

Gary Wright “I believe the biggest issue facing Snohomish County is the economy and jobs,” said Wright, of Marysville. “There are probably different opinions on how we get there and how we enhance opportunities for new companies and businesses to grow, but that is the biggest issue.” Wright noted that fostering business growth requires giving attention to other aspects of the county. “There are other things that contribute to the economy,” he said. “Obviously transportation plays a part, and zoning and planning play a part. I think that collaboration with all of the different governmental entities contributes toward that development.” His urge to encourage col-

laboration comes from experience being involved in government. “I have been very involved in government in every level — city level, county level, state level and federal level,” he said. “I am still trying to influence and effect regulations, laws and ordinances that have to do with real estate and property rights.” Wright is owner of Gary Wright Realty in Marysville. “I have been Councilman John Koster’s real estate contact, as well as the contact for both Democrat and Republican state senators and representatives. I am involved in the process and have been for a long time. I think my experience and leadership will be an asset to the council. I have been the president of large organizations, including the State Association of Realtors, and vice president of the National Association of Realtors, which has 1 million members. I’m a member of the Snohomish County Economic Development Task Force, as a business representative to address issues that affect economic development. It is one of my passions and an issue that I’m willing to put a lot time into.”

for the city of Arlington and believes in focusing on economic growth and the protection of natural resources, fostering a sustainable Snohomish County. “One important piece of the puzzle that we need to work on is the Council’s Comprehensive Plan,” Blake said. “It is supporting the necessary housing for all ages and economic classes, allowing for job growth with family wage jobs, and supporting the renaissance of natural resources industries, such as timber and agriculture.” Blake sees natural resources industries as a great way to keep money in local communities and schools, and create jobs. “In agriculture you have the full circle,” he said. “You grow it, you harvest it, you process it and you make your added value product. Those we use in our schools, for our school nutrition program. The products made here are sold here too, growing the retail sales tax in town and keeping those jobs local. There is a full-circle sustainable aspect to that.” Blake has been working for the city of Arlington for more than a decade and sees his experience as an asset that will help him as a County Council member. “I have 13 years experience

at the city — operating government, being in the trenches, managing the permit center and customer services, making sure everyone is treated the same and helping them accomplish their goals,” Blake said. “We’ve helped shepherd them through the permitting and regulatory process and get them through. What sets me apart from other candidates is that when it comes to an elected person making a decision on an issue, they don’t always know what it takes to get to there. Because I have been in charge of that process, I’m going to be able to ask those questions and make sure it fits with what our constituents are looking for. And with a focusing on sustainability we can create jobs and boost the economy while protecting our resources. Natural resources is an economic engine when managed in a sustainable manner.”


Blake, of Arlington, works

Carsten Mullin Mullin, a current Snohomish County employee and Arlington resident, wants to focus on collaboration and communication between the community and government. “The biggest issue, honestly, is communication,” Mullin said. “Getting community leaders to work together and

communicate with the government is important. I think it will solve a lot of Snohomish County’s problems.” Mullin would like to see the Council collaborating with the County Executive and other county departments. “I think if the County Council worked together with the Executive and also communicated with department heads, there will be a lot fewer problems, and the solutions to the problems we do face will come a lot quicker.” Mullin sees his experience as a county employee as being important to understanding the role of a Council member. “The biggest thing that sets me apart is the experience that I have with the county,” he said. “I’ve worked there for six years in the information services department. In that time, we faced major layoffs and I was realizing how tough that was. I was also part of the contract negotiations with our union, AFSCME Council No. 2 — Local 1811CA, and the information services department. I felt it went really well and it was a positive experience.”

67th Ave. NE re-opens to traffic early July 22 ARLINGTON — Crews successfully installed a new culvert under 67th Avenue NE for Portage Creek during the weekend of July 19-22. To complete this work in a safe and timely manner, a section of 67th Avenue NE was closed to through traffic. Crews completed their work on July 22 and the roadway opened up in time for the

Monday evening commute, almost a full day ahead of schedule. “The construction team did an amazing job completing this important piece of the project in a safe and timely manner,” Arlington Mayor Barbara Tolbert said. “An early opening is good news for commuters and local businesses.” The Portage Creek culvert is the first of two being installed as part of the city of Arlington’s 67th Avenue Final Phase project. A new culvert for Prairie Creek will be installed the weekend of Aug. 2-6 and will also require a roadway closure. The scheduled closure will occur between 204th Street NE and 211th Place NE from 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 2, until 5 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 6. “We want to remind folks that local businesses in this area will remain open during the upcoming closures,” Tolbert said. “This is the final scheduled roadway closure for this project and we appreciate everyone’s patience.” The city has planned these closures over weekends when local events have not been scheduled in order to minimize impacts to local businesses, community members and visitors. A detour route has been established for those who typically use this section of 67th Avenue NE. The city of Arlington has been working since 2001 to improve safety and mobility for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians on 67th Avenue NE. The 67th Avenue Final Phase includes improvements to 67th Avenue NE between 204th Street NE and Lebanon Street. To keep the community informed throughout construction, the city has set up a project website at, and will provide regular updates through its e-newsletter. The public can also email questions to or call the project information line at 360594-2425. A link to the detour map can be found at

ARLINGTON — Drivers on State Route 531 east of Interstate 5 should expect some nighttime delays due to single-lane closures on the evening of Wednesday, July 24, through the morning of Thursday, July 25. Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will install roadway sensors that will keep several traffic signals operating when highway grinding and paving kicks into gear in late August, and traffic will be flagged on SR 531 and its side streets. Both directions of SR 531 and its connecting streets will be subject to intermittent single-lane closures from 8 p.m. on July 24 to 5 a.m. on July 25, to adjust and program detection cameras at the signalcontrolled intersections at 67th Avenue NE, 59th Avenue NE and 51st Avenue NE on Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Beginning around Aug. 25, crews will go to work fixing cracks and potholes, and will grind and repave SR 531 from east of 43rd Avenue to just west of the State Route 9 roundabout. During the nighttime grinding and paving closures, detours will be clearly marked. Some of this work is weather dependent and may need to be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather.

Top AquaSox players come to Arlington BY LAUREN SALCEDO

ARLINGTON — Getting a current or former athlete to travel to the suburbs for a free signing can be a bit of a difficulty, but Britt Sports Cards in Arlington is doing just that. Some of the top players of the Everett AquaSox will be visiting the store on Aug. 3 from 10-11 a.m. “We’ve done a big promotional package with the AquaSox this year and we have been giving away free tickets as part of a raffle” said Mike Britt, owner of Britt Sports Cards. “It’s a free event and the top players for the AquaSox will be here at the store signing autographs.” Britt is hoping to spark a passion for sports among community members and children who can see local sports heroes in their own hometown. “They are really limited to where they go with their signings, so it’s a special event to have them leave their surroundings and come out into the community,” said Britt. “It coincides

“We want to support Arlington and get kids involved and interested in restoring this hobby. It gets kids off the street and gets them doing something fun. Because just one thing can change their life.” Mike Britt, Owner, Britt Sports Cards well with the Northwest Minor League Baseball AllStar game that the AquaSox will be hosting. We have the most tickets of any business or person for that game, and we are giving them away in our raffle.” Anyone can go into the store and drop their name into the raffle for free. “It’s one raffle ticket each, per day. So if you have a family of five, you can put each name in once a day, and we never empty it,” said Britt. The autograph signing is free for anyone who would like to come and bring their own merchandise to be signed — baseballs, mitts, jerseys. “We will have baseballs and photographs, so there

are options here for people to purchase things to get signed if they don’t have anything,” said Britt. “This is just a very family-friendly event. We want to bring people into our time of sports, and it’s a really cool time to be a fan because of All-Star game and that the AquaSox are doing so well this year.” In Sedro-Woolley recently, an event was advertised for a special fundraiser with former Mariners Edgar Martinez, Jay Buhner and Dan Wilson, but although fans showed up in the hundreds, the Mariners never did. According to Rebecca Hale, public relations director for the Mariners, the players and the organization were unaware of the event. “That made me cringe

when I saw that,” said Britt, who was worried that fans may assume a similar outcome from the AquaSox signing at his store. “Our intentions and what we are doing is so positive, and it’s a free event for the whole family. That story kind of worked against what we are trying to do. All of this can be verified with the AquaSox. Anybody who goes to an AquaSox game knows we have been collaborating with them. We’ve got a whole-page coupon in their program.” Most of all, Britt wants to pass on his love for all things sports by giving local kids an event they can remember. “It’s a really neat thing,” he said. “We want to give back to the community and Arlington and bring fun things here. We want to support Arlington and get kids involved and interested in restoring this hobby. It gets kids off the street and gets them doing something fun. Because just one thing can change their life.” Britt Sports Cards is located at 332 N. Olympic Ave. in Arlington.

3-on-3 X-travaganza set for Aug. 10-11 BY LAUREN SALCEDO

Members of the 2012 sixth-grade girls team “Game Time Swag” pose with their winning bracket at the annual 3-on-3 X-travaganza at the Arlington Municipal Airport.

ARLINGTON — The ninth annual 3-on-3 X-travaganza basketball tournament is set for Aug. 10-11 at the Arlington Airport and is expected to draw hundreds of competitors and thousands of spectators to the Arlington community. “It’s so great for our community, we really want to keep it a fun community event,” said Nicole Roskelley, board member and public relations director for the event. “It’s been a part of the A-Town Hoops program for three years now, before it was hosted through the Boys & Girls Club and Tulalip Tribes.” In 2012, the tournament drew 132 teams of four, both kids and adults, from fifth grade on up to senior adults. This year, third- and

fourth-graders will have the option to play. “We worked with Snohomish County Tourism and they estimate that we brought in more than $300,000 in income for the county,” said Roskelley. “Last year we had between 1,500 and 2,000 people brought into the area. We offer camping, rock music from local bands, food and more.” The tournament is played in a double elimination format, with three games being guaranteed. Awards will be given to each division champion. “We want to make it to a mini-Hoopfest and bring a lot of people into the community, and make it a big thing for this city and county,” said Roskelley. “There is the added benefit of helping out local merchants by bringing in so many people. We want to make this a big

staple for the county.” Registration is due by Aug. 1, with a fee of $112 per team. There is no cost to attend and cheer on each team, however, and there will be a number of opportunities for entertainment. “We invite vendors out — a lot of vendors,” laughed Roskelley. “We have tons of food vendors with things like barbecue, SnoCones and hot dogs. We opened up the vendor booths to anybody that wants to be there, so last year we even had a jewelry lady come in, which was popular among the moms watching their kids.” The tournament also donates a portion of its proceeds to the Arlington Relay for Life. “It started a few years ago when a group of us on the board had friends and coaches and their families getting diagnosed with can-

cer at that time, so we set up a percentage to give to Relay for Life,” said Roskelley. “And our funds don’t just go to support basketball. We support all sports and even community organizations. If football kids come out and volunteer, they can get a percentage of the proceeds toward their sport. It’s a way to build up the community.” Roskelley is hoping that the tournament continues to grow every year. “There’s no cost to come and just visit the vendors — the more the merrier,” she said. “We are also working really hard with the Storm, to get the girls’ events out there more, and hopefully they will be here next year.” The tournament is set for Aug. 10-11 at the north side of the Arlington Municipal Airport, located at 4700 188th St. NE in Arlington.

Arlington man crafts custom furniture

ARLINGTON — Michael Wendland has been honing his craft as a woodworker for decades, but it took the recent economic downturn to persuade him to pursue the more artistic side of the field. “I was a licensed general contractor for 35 years,” said Wendland, who now works out of a shop behind his country home. “As part of that, I built some items of furniture for my customers, but it wasn’t my main job. Then the collapse of 2008 hit. It would have been my fourth economic recovery in the construction industry if I’d stayed in, but I just didn’t

They’re so tightly packed that you can have 30 years in an inch and a half.” Like his former occupation as a general contractor, Wendland’s wood collection ranges 35 years and numbers 28 different tree species, and rather than trying to reshape and recolor the wood to fit certain specifications, as he did in construction, his current furniture pieces rely on letting the natural state of the wood speak to him. “I’ve got a whole rainbow spectrum of wood here, and I never stain it unless it’s required,” said Wendland, whose collection also includes an array of unique-

Blood drive shows support for girl with leukemia

ARLINGTON — When 10-year-old Maddy White was diagnosed with leukemia barely two months ago, Melody Lich and Danica Kazen mobilized the other friends of the White family to show their support for a little girl in Arlington who was fighting for her life, which was what led to the Puget Sound Blood Center’s “Bloodmobile” drawing more than 30 donors to the parking lot of the Arlington Co-op on

Thursday, July 18. “As soon as we heard Maddy’s diagnosis, we knew we would be there to support her family,” Kazen said on July 18, as her daughter Katelynn rolled up her own sleeve to give blood. “This whole community has been there for them, with meals and lawn care and all sorts of things. We want to love them so much. The family’s church has been helping out big time.” While that day’s blood donations will stay local, Lich acknowledged that they obvi-

ously don’t know how much of that blood will go back to Maddy, but with the frequency of Maddy’s visits to the hospital, she figures that every little bit helps. “Her family is having to drive her to Seattle Children’s at least three or four times each week,” Lich said on July 18. “I just decided to put out a collection box today to go with the blood drive, because the White family is looking to get an air filtration system for Maddy that was used by another family whose child had cancer, but the replacement bulbs for it cost $40 each.” Katelynn Kazen had never donated blood before, but between her concern for Maddy and the treatment she received from the Bloodmobile staff, her mind was soon at ease. “The worst thing is the first prick of the needle,” Katelynn

Kazen said. “After that, I didn’t worry about it.” Taylor Haase, a phlebotomist who was one of the Bloodmobile’s four staff members that day, deemed Arlington an excellent source of blood donations, due in no small part to the Carbajal family, who used the Facebook page devoted to their own frequent blood drives to promote the July 18 blood drive in honor of Maddy White. “Arlington always seems like it generates a good turnout for blood drives,” Haase said. “By helping us out, you’re potentially helping your neighbors. We need new blood every day.” Angela Hinton, a collection specialist for the Puget Sound Blood Center, added that the supply for platelets is especially short, due to increased demand at local hospitals.

impact government can have on multiple industries. Any business is good business, and if people are focused on only one industry, those different industries get left in the weeds. I want to make sure we create an environment in the county where all businesses can thrive.”

our focus needs to be, and helping that along with collaborative spirit.” Klein sees his experience as an Arlington City Council member as being essential to understanding the County Council position. “I’m the only one who has been elected to something,” he said. “I’ve worked in executive management in a number of industries, including food service, property management and construction. I can see what kind of

Klein, an Arlington resident. “We need more jobs here in the area, in the north especially. We are too much of a bedroom community for King County. We are doing a good job of creating jobs so far. We have a good plan for an industrial center in the south Arlington, north Marysville area. That will bring in 10,000-20,000 manufacturing jobs. That is what

Sean Olson “I’d really like to see more transparency in local governments,” said Olson, a city of Marysville employee.

“Not just local but all governments. One of the things I’ve noticed while looking through our budgets is that all of our tax money goes into the general fund, and is then dispersed to individual departments from there. But we don’t see what it is being spent on and how it’s being spent.” Olson, who has lived in Snohomish County all of his life, is hoping to encourage more collaboration between individual communities and

the county. “I would like to accomplish the task of making our government more transparent through a focus on community involvement,” he said. “It doesn’t matter what you do — if no one is paying attention, no one is going to care.” This is Olson’s first time running for local government, but he hopes that his dedication to local communities will set him apart. He has been working for the city of


Marysville for nine years, and started a family in the community where he grew up. “I’ve never run for anything before,” he said. “I’m familiar with how the system works, and one of the things I would like to see change is exactly that — how the system works.” A candidate forum for Snohomish County Council District 1 is set for July 31 at Leifer Manor, 12511 State Ave. in Marysville, at 6:30 p.m.

Silvana Fair returns to Viking Hall July 27 BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

SILVANA — The Silvana Fair marks its return on July 27 to the tiny town between Stanwood and Arlington, whose Viking Hall and surrounding fairground fields come alive with the sounds of family farming fun on the last Saturday of every July, marking the start of fair season in the Pacific Northwest. “Like Brigadoon, it’s a one-day

event that appears almost magically, only to disappear again the next day,” said Lynn Pattison, vice president of the Silvana Community Fair Board. “Unlike Brigadoon, it’s come back every year since 1948, and it’s not magic that brings it, but the hard work of a small local group of dedicated volunteers who put the fair together every year.” This year’s Silvana Fair will officially commence with the flag rais-

ing and opening ceremonies at 9 a.m., followed by children’s games and judging of the animal exhibits. Live music will kick off at noon, and food will be available all day long. After a lunch break, the judging will continue, along with a tractor pull exhibition and other events. “Be sure to visit the many vendor booths, and check out the fabulous exhibits inside Viking Hall,” said Pattison, who noted that this year’s

fair will conclude, as always, with the Parade of Champions and closing ceremonies at 5 p.m. “Adults and youth alike are welcome to enter their best works in a huge variety of departments, including the traditional fair exhibits such as cooking, sewing, horticulture and a number of crafts, as well as computer science, photography, creative writing and many other categories.” Pattison added that young peo-

ple aged 6-19 can enter animals including rabbits, poultry, dogs, cows, goats, swine and more, even if they’re not members of animal clubs. Both youths and adults can win ribbons, and youth exhibitors also earn money for their exhibits. She explained that one of the primary goals of the Silvana Fair is to prepare the community’s youth for See FAIR, PAGE 15

Meet Jeff; he's a sweet little guy who's likely going to bond to just a few adults (no kids in his new home, please). He's going to be a great lap dog and will do well in any living situation provided he is given enough exercise. Dogs like him may be small but still need to walked daily and given toys to play with. Do not let the Chihuahua get away with things you would not allow a large dog to do such as jumping up on humans. If you think Jeff is your new companion, fill out an application for Jeff today!

Luke is really hoping some luck will come his way and he'll find his forever home. He has a lot of love to give. He just dives right in when being petted - he especially likes to be scratched behind the ears. Luke is still young and playful and overall, he seems to be pretty mellow. Even so, his introduction to the pets and people in his new family should be made slowly. Will you make Luke's luck turn around?

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