Church looks back on 100 years of history BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

ARLINGTON — “Just about any reason is a good reason to celebrate,” said Deena Jones, pastor of the Arlington United Church, on Saturday, Aug. 31. “But tonight, we get to celebrate the fact that people have been able to worship Christ on this site for the past 100 years.” The weekend of Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 commemorated the longevity of the Arlington United Church building not only through a “sharing and singing program” that Saturday evening, but also through the church’s regular services on the morning of Sunday, Sept. 1, which featured appearances by the Aylesworth Family Singers and Rev. Daniel Foster, the United Methodist Church District Superintendent, the latter of whom passed on his bishop’s congratulations. Jones thanked the pioneers who dedicated the Arlington church building at 338 N. Macleod Ave. on Sept. 1, 1913, as a congregational church, crediting them with having “dreams bigger than their SEE CHURCH, PAGE 2

Cascade Valley Hospital is entering into strategic alliance negotiations with the Catholic-affiliated PeaceHealth, but there is no guarantee that the two health care organizations will reach an agreement.

ARLINGTON — The Cascade Valley Hospital and Clinics Board of Commissioners voted 5-0 on Thursday, Aug. 29, to enter into strategic alliance negotiations with PeaceHealth, which includes its proposed strategic collaboration with University of Washington Medicine, but Board Chair Dr. Tim Cavanagh wants to make sure the public understands what this arrangement actually means.

“We haven’t agreed to anything other than that we’ll enter into negotiations with them,” Cavanagh said. “Their answers satisfied us enough to think that we can work out whatever issues we might have, but there is no guarantee that we will reach an agreement.” Cavanagh acknowledged that one of those issues will be how the Catholic-affiliated PeaceHealth SEE HOSPITAL, PAGE 19

CHURCH FROM PAGE 1 pocketbooks,” and noted the countless sacrifices that church members have made in the decades since to maintain both the church and its building, whose histories were summed up during the Saturday dinner through a skit performed by Erich Lish and Sherry Edwards. “We stepped out on faith and started the church with $40 in our building fund,” said Edwards, who played the role of church charter member Ida Handley. “At one point during the Depression, we had only 34 cents in our bank account.” Handley passed away in 1944, but her granddaughter, Helen Starr, fell in love with the church from an early age. “She was so enthusiastic about her organ lessons that she wanted to start a choir here,” said Edwards, who noted that Starr had also taught Sunday school at the church, and even worked for the U.S. Navy, before she ultimately passed away on April 30 of this year, just three months shy of her own 100th birthday. “She followed what God had laid on her heart.”

Lish added that the Arlington Community Food Bank began in the church, before it outgrew the building and moved to Haller Park, and then to the east side of the Arlington Airport. “Youth Dynamics has also worked from this church to bring the message of Christ to area young people,” Lish said. The evening’s two-person dinner theater was followed by the singing of hymns by the Arlington United Church Choir and the rest of the attendees, and included another humorous history lesson in its 100th anniversary song written by Ken and Angela Ripley. “We did a silly spin on the Brady Bunch theme song, because the story of the Arlington United Church is really a romance story, about the marriage of two churches,” said Angela Ripley, referring to the First Congregational Church of Arlington on Macleod Avenue merging with the Methodist Episcopal Church that occupied the building on 117 E. Division St. until 1974. “There was an actual exodus, as the congregation from the one church walked down the street and up the hill to the

other.” Ripley’s four years of studies into the histories of the two churches began with a simple illustrated book showcasing the Arlington United Church’s stained-glass windows, but researching those windows’ origins led her to become the Indiana Jones of the church’s basement. “There’s a ton of boxes full of documents down there,” Ripley said. “It’s like Narnia.” From those texts and photos, Ripley assembled two tall display boards presenting illustrated histories of the two churches, complete with articles from The Arlington Times. The Arlington United Church’s more modern history was highlighted by several speakers during the storytelling open-mic portion of the Aug. 31 festivities. Elizabeth Soper Bachman, a visiting pastor from Olympia, recalled her Camp Fire Girls council meetings taking place in the same room in which everyone was dining that evening, while Jeannie Lish lauded Ruth Munizza for the years she’s spent directing the Arlington United Church Choir. “This was not my religion to begin with, but this congregation became my

I am very proud now to call this my church, and my home.” “I remember when Eddie Aylesworth was in high school, and he used to crawl all over the organ,” Kathy Weeks said of Ed Aylesworth, now one of the senior members of the Aylesworth Family Singers,


drawing laughter from those in attendance. “I even remember my own kids talking about how much trouble he got into,” said Yolanda Larsen, mother of U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen, before she presented an American flag to the Arlington United Church that had been flown over the nation’s capitol on Aug. 20, which was the date of the first joint picnic between the two churches in 1925. “There have always been children who have misbehaved in this church,” Jones

chuckled, pointing out that many of those former children are now grown adults and parents with children of their own. “So if they tell you, ‘When I was a kid, I never did things like that,’ you can say, ‘Oh, yes you did.’ I pray that we’ll continue to have children crawling around in this church for years to come.” The Arlington United Church building has been in continual use by the same congregation for longer than any other church building in Arlington.

somewhat more expensive $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. The Byrnes Performing Arts Center is located at 18821 Crown Ridge Blvd. in Arlington, and doors open at 5 p.m. for the Sept. 5 meeting.

information, and the meeting which had been scheduled for July 31 was cancelled. “We want to carefully consider the additional information as we finalize the study,” Don Bivins, an associate with ESCI, said after the original meeting was cancelled. “Additional time is needed to verify the new information in order to provide the area policymakers with the information they need to make any decisions on cooperative fire and EMS services.” The Arlington and Arlington Rural fire and EMS agencies were joined in participating in this study by similar agencies from Darrington, Silvana, Tulalip Bay, Camano Island and the North County Regional Fire Authority. Of the total cost of $76,062.92 to fund the study, Arlington is funding $13,746.55, or approximately 18.05 percent of that total. “We were fortunate that our friends in North County agreed to participate,” said Arlington City Administrator Allen Johnson, referencing the

ARLINGTON — After the cancellation of a previously scheduled meeting, the community is invited to attend a rescheduled 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 Thursday, Sept. 5, starting at 5:30 p.m. Firefighters from Arlington, Arlington Heights, Silvana, Lakewood, Marysville, Getchell and Tulalip Bay were among those representing 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 Arlington Fire Chief Bruce Stedman’s recommendation of the proposed study by Emergency Services Consulting International, 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 medical 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. During the review process of the study, ESCI received additional information from the seven participating agencies. As a result of this routine response, ESCI requested additional time to review and assess the additional

renewed activism, the Social Gospel. Champions of the Social Gospel zero in on what the world needs. They plead cases for voiceless nature. They deal with here-and-now stuff, not just getting to heaven. They want to help people figure out God’s purpose for them in this world. And if those happen to be church newbies looking to improve their self-centered lives, they’ll need places where they feel they can ask honest newbie questions, like, “What’s in it for me?” I checked web-listings for churches in Marysville and found names like Apostolic Truth, City of Refuge, Community of Christ, Eastgate Chapel, Jesus is Lord, Judah Praise Center, New Hope Community Church, Northridge Church, Northstar Church, Reflection of Love and Turning Point Church. Notice that they don’t highlight alliances with traditional denominations. The public just doesn’t care much anymore about traditional labels and forms of worship. The change has struck in two ways. There are the startup churches that traditionalists think of as “upstart” churches — think guitars and drums. You may find more

they hang onto the basics. Quite a few Christians are church-hoppers, worshipping here, there and anywhere. Marysville now has a Lutheran pastor serving St. Phillips Episcopal’s congregation and everyone seems happy with the arrangement. The emphasis on service to the world at large comes straight from the Bible. It makes sense because it’s outside of churches where you’re more likely to find people in need of a helping hand. Sunday Christians won’t get much done by sitting around chapels like car salesmen, waiting for someone to wander onto the lot. So these “awakened” churches now celebrate Community by meeting in homes and with free breakfasts and dinners, neighborhood clean-up projects, child-care, support for schools, fun nights and creative projects for youth. They’re working toward a keener sense of need and learning appropriate ways to respond. The new way is where the excitement lies. Ask Marysville or Arlington church-people who went south to help with the clean up after Katrina. Or ask any of the hundreds who participate in neighborhood clean-up projects. They know for a fact that the future of churches lies in service.





motorcycles there than at aging brick-and-mortar churches. And there are reborn congregations where daring preachers inform their people that they have to get out there and “connect” with need or nothing will get done. Community is the Operative Word today. Check how many of churches listed above include Community in their names. Churches of the community, churches by the community and churches for communities. The Church is finally figuring out that service to community is the most meaningful way to promote its message. Established churches will either change or wither as the changing social landscape works on them. Grandkids of immigrant settlers don’t stay around to fill pews as their parents did and today’s work-force has become as rootless as military families. The churches European immigrants built as ethnic havens lost that reason-for-being with assimilation. Though shrinking congregations may not like it, the tide has turned and won’t turn back. The Marysville Assembly of God is now Grove Street Church. Check around town and you’ll find more down-playing of denominational labels — not that those churches drop their unique brands of Christianity — they just choose to soft-peddle the labels to become more invitational. It’s not a bad thing to blur lines between denominations so long as









t’s hard to grasp the immensity of change that’s shaking up many Marysville churches. It’s like trying to gauge the intensity of a tide when you’re being swept along with it. Yet quite a number of churches in Marysville are growing with (or suffering from) a tide of change that will not leave things as they were. It took 1,500 years for growing tensions in the church to explode as Martin Luther’s Reformation and it’s taken another 600 for the church to work up to this next adjustment. Given its impact, it’s a wonder that it flies under the media’s radar. It will be rough for some, change that upsets tradition is never smooth, even for those who expect that their God is still in charge. Old timers wonder why churches shouldn’t carry on as before. That can’t happen because the social terrain has shifted so much that certain church “standard operating procedures” have become irrelevant to the very people they want to reach. Churches had to be reminded that they exist to serve folks who haven’t yet crossed their thresholds and that’s a lot to swallow for members who’ve settled into the old ways. The spotlight is swinging toward a different focus, more toward loving your neighbor and your enemy, feeding the hungry, welcoming strangers, clothing the naked and visiting sick people and prisoners, etc., but without dropping the rest of the Christian package.

Set-Free Walk planned for Sept. 7 in Marysville

Event set to raise awareness of human trafficking, raise money to fund Peoria Home iniative MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Free Methodist Church and the Set-Free Movement will be sponsoring a Set-Free Walk on Saturday, Sept. 7, starting in the upper parking lot of the church with a rally at 9:30 a.m. and the actual walk following at 10 a.m., to increase awareness of modern day human trafficking and to raise money for a seed fund for the Peoria Home initiative. Peoria Home is a project of the Snohomish County Sexual Exploitation Intervention Network, and its name is taken from the city in which President Abraham Lincoln gave a speech arguing against slavery. Pastor Victor Rodriguez of the Marysville Free Methodist Church credited both local and national news stories this summer with highlighting the danger of human trafficking and human slavery in America. “Washington state is a leader in laws against human trafficking, and a move is underway here in Snohomish County to help women in recovery from this situation,” said Rodriguez, who quoted the state Attorney General’s office website’s claim that, “Washington was the first state to pass a law criminalizing human trafficking and we have the most stringent law in the country.” The walk is 5K, with a shorter route possible. All ages are invited to participate. Registration is $15 per person, or $25 per family. The project is sponsored by the Set-Free Movement, the Marysville Free Methodist Church, the Damascus Road Church and the Marysville Area Pastors Association. To register or for more information, log onto www. setfreewalk2013.eventbrite. com or call Rodriguez at 360-659-7117. The Marysville Free Methodist Church is located at 6715 Grove St. in Marysville.

Fire Chief Stedman earns professional designation ARLINGTON — Arlington Fire Chief Bruce Stedman has successfully completed the process that awards him the professional designation of “Chief Fire Officer.” The Commission on Professional Credentialing met on Aug. 14 to officially confer the re-designation upon Stedman, who is one of only 936 CFOs worldwide. The Chief Fire Officer Designation program is a voluntary program designed to recognize individuals who

demonstrate their excellence in seven measured components, including experience, education, professional development, professional contributions, association membership, community involvement and technical competencies. Stedman received his original designation on Nov. 16, 2010. To maintain the designation, individuals need to show they have continued to develop as CFOs in four areas: Professional development, professional contributions, active association membership

and community involvement. A Board of Review — consisting of members of the fire and emergency services professions, academia and municipal agencies — reviews each application and recommends successful candidates for designation to the Commission. Stedman has been a member of the fire service for 35 years, serving the past three years in the Arlington Fire Department, and currently resides in Snohomish.

‘Week of Service’ benefits local food banks

The Marysville and Arlington community food banks will be among the beneficiaries of the weeklong food drive conducted by the Arlington stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, from Monday, Sept. 9, through Saturday, Sept. 14. For three years running, this annual event has hon-

ored America’s National Day of Service and memorialized the Sept. 11 attacks by enlisting the aid of dozens of businesses, churches and other organizations in Marysville, Arlington, Darrington, Stanwood and Camano Island to support their local food banks. “The volunteers and I are really looking forward

to this event,” Marysville Community Food Bank Director Dell Deierling said. “It is so well-run, and generates tons of food at a time when our shelves are the leanest. And what a great way to help heal the wounds left by 9/11, by helping one’s neighbor.” “We are very grateful to be one of the recipients of

the annual ‘Week of Service’ food drive,” Arlington Community Food Bank President Sue Keezer said. “We are so thankful for any contributions to help feed the hungry in our community.” Since the first such community food drive was held in 2011, hundreds of volunteers from each of these communities have invested numerous hours collecting, weighing, sorting and packaging the donated foods for delivery to their respective food banks. That same year, more than 23,000 pounds of food were collected, with similar results in 2012. Food bank representatives encourage community members to donate canned meat, peanut butter, Ensure, baby formula and healthy, kid-friendly snacks, along with other essentials including laundry detergent, toilet paper, diapers, baby wipes and toiletries. These non-perishable food items, hygiene supplies and monetary contributions may be dropped off at volunteerstaffed donation boxes at the following locations. Marysville: n Albertsons at 301

ARLINGTON — Visitors to the Cascade Valley Hospital and Clinics still have time to catch the special showing of local artwork depicting the “Scenes of Summer,” among them the abstract photography of Camelia Nahlik, photos of fireworks by Jim DeFreece, and nature scenes captured on film by Phil Lane, the latter including a sunset at Padilla Bay. These locally produced artworks are still hanging on the wall of the Cascade Valley Hospital’s gallery on the second floor, where both patients and visitors can admire them, and are also available for sale. The “Scenes of Summer” will remain on display until Sunday, Sept. 15, when their removal will make way for an autumn art showcase, according to Heather Logan, assistant administrator of diagnostic and support services at Cascade Valley Hospital. “We are committed to creating a healing environment that includes soothing colors, indoor and outdoor respites, and superb art,” Logan said. “The photogra-

Eagles back on the pitch with high hopes BY LAUREN SALCEDO

Lauren Salcedo/Staff Photo

Arlington’s Darby Winterer prepares to pass to a teammate during practice on Thursday, Aug. 29.

ARLINGTON — As school begins again, so too do high school sports, and the Arlington girls soccer team is gearing up for the season — new and improved. The Eagles had a few injuries toward the end of last season that affected their chances at taking the division title, but they are back on the field and in top shape. “We didn’t make it to the post season last year,” said head coach Nathan Davis. “We started out the season really strong, but we suffered a number of injuries and finished fourth. It’s nice to see everyone back to full health.” Nine girls return to the varsity team, including five seniors — Darby Winterer, Sophia Hitsky, Madi Grogan, Marisa Rathert and Jordan Adell. Strong returners and fresh newcomers will help give the Eagles a successful

season, but first they need to focus on team-building. “For the most part, the first two weeks are about putting together a team as one,” said Davis. “Everyone plays on different teams, so we have to get them working together. After that we are going to focus on controlling the ball and put an emphasis on maintaining possession.” Mid-fielder Olivia Larson, now a sophomore, is back again for another goal-making year, and some newcomers are filling forward positions for a strong offense. “Olivia Larson was on our varsity team as a freshman and scored 11 goals,” said Davis. “This year I expect her to do even better. She is a really smart player. Up front we have Bre Morren, a junior, and Danielle Baker, a sophomore, who looked really good in tryouts, and I’m excited to see what they can do.” Sophomore Kat Sanchez is a newcomer who will fill the role as goalkeeper this

season, with help on the defense by some seasoned athletes. “Goalkeeping is really important and she has been doing really well,” said Davis. “My defense is anchored by Madi Grogan and Kerra Williamson, two defensive players who can really be counted on to make plays.” Once the team gets settled in and ready for their first game, they have specific goals in mind. “Our goal is to win the North and win one playoff game,” said Davis. “Winning the North requires us to play well consistently and win our home games. And if we can achieve that and make it through one playoff game, it only takes two more games to get to the district championships.” The Eagles will compete in the Lakewood Jamboree on Saturday, Sept. 7, at 11 a.m. Their first conference match is set for Tuesday, Sept. 10, against Lake Stevens in an away game, starting at 7:30 p.m.

Cougars return to the court better than ever BY LAUREN SALCEDO

LAKEWOOD — The Lady Cougars are returning to the court for their first week of volleyball practice, and even in a non-competitive practice match they are focused, skilled and working together to communicate for what they hope will be a successful season. Lakewood returns eight players, seven of them seniors, and they are hoping that 2013 will be their year — and they want to build on the success of last season. “We have gone to districts for the past four or five years in a row,” said head coach Tasha Kryger. “Last year, the girls wanted to go to the second day of districts and when they did, it was the first time since 1989 or 1990 that Lakewood went that far. I think our success at districts has really set the tone for this year. Our goal is to go to districts again and take it one step further.” The seniors are working on incorporating younger players in team-building exercises prior to their first game. “We did the youth camp this summer, which was helpful for our younger girls,” said Kryger. “We also went to a team camp at Eastern Washington University, which we haven’t done in a few years. The coaching staff there is amazing, and the girls played well together and learned

“ I think our success at districts has really set the tone for this year. Our goal is to go to districts again and take it one step further.” Tasha Kryger, Head Coach Lakewood Volleyball a lot. There were teams from around the Spokane and Idaho area, and we made it into the top four. We didn’t play it out between third and fourth, but since we beat the other team before, I figure we were basically third out of 16 teams.” Their summer success brought a lot of excitement for the players who are hoping to prove that they can compete and go further in districts than any Lakewood volleyball team has gone in decades — but first they must get through the first couple weeks of practice. “I’m a big believer in coaching the fundamentals,” said Kryger. “We focus on passing and digging first, and then an emphasis on serving and then hitting. We will see what the lineups look like, but we have so much depth on this team that we can push people to different spots. These are all smart girls.” The Cougars beat rival Archbishop Murphy several times during their district

Blue Stilly Players get audiences involved in improv


ARLINGTON — The Blue Stilly Players took advantage of the Arlington Farmers’ Market on Saturday, Aug. 24, to engage with an audience through their improvisational session at Legion Park entitled “Go Ahead, Be Dramatic!” While Bridget Clawson, founder of the Blue Stilly Players, had hoped for as many as 50 participants from the audience for the free afternoon performance, Seattle-based improv talents Andy Clawson and Dusty Lee managed to rope in close to 30 amateur players from the crowd throughout the hour-and-a-half session. “Both Andy and Dusty are local Arlington boys, who are doing good stuff in the big city in all things dramatic,” said Bridget Clawson, Andy’s mother, who explained that the day’s interactive dramatic exercises included warm ups such

as word association, as well as story-building based on random sentences submitted by audience members. “We want audiences to have fun and see how easy it is to flex the mind with improv.” According to Bridget Clawson, the Blue Stilly Players have found that local audiences appreciate brisk and audience participation-

oriented performances that are free of charge and put an emphasis on fun for all ages. “We’re getting to know the Arlington audience, and matching that with the volunteers we get to stage productions,” Clawson said. “Improv sessions are easy to stage and fun for the audience. We’re especially aiming to get young people

involved in theater, in a lowkey and fun but instructive way, that inspires them to do more and explore life through this art. It’s memorable because it’s so right there, inches away from the audience, getting them to be part of the show.” Clawson reported that the audience feedback she received would support

further improv clinics and workshops. “Next spring and summer will probably lead to more improv, with familycentered material that’s fun for the audience, and easy to produce and stage as public art,” Clawson said. “The Blue Stilly Players are mainly interested in satisfying the appetite of local T:4.8”

residents for free, accessible, family-friendly shows. What we need more of are people who want to get involved in bringing that kind of theater to the public in Arlington.” The Blue Stilly Players are a nonprofit organization whose website is For more information, email Clawson at

Friendship Walk returns to Arlington Sept. 28 BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

ARLINGTON — Attendees of Village Community Services’ sixth annual Friendship Walk & Car Wash on Saturday, Sept. 28, can walk or volunteer at the Legion Park Gazebo, located at 114 N. Olympic Ave. in Arlington. Registration opens at 11 a.m. and the walk starts at 1 p.m., with suggested donations of $25 per walker or $10 per car wash, although gifts of larger amounts will be accepted and appreciated. The car wash runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. that same Saturday at the Co-Op Supply parking lot, located at 101 S. Olympic Ave. in Arlington. “This started as a fundraiser for our band, Voices of the Village, and our music and arts programs,” said Michelle Dietz, director of development for Village Community Services. “It was just two parents who volunteered to get things started, and it went from there.” The Friendship Walk & Car Wash will include a miniresource fair for those with developmental disabilities and their caregivers, as well

as a performance by Sabrina the Reptile Lady, a white dove release by Highland Lofts, music by Voices of the Village, face-painting, prizes, snacks and a $5 hot dog lunch. Volunteers are still needed to help with the setup, registration and cleanup for the Friendship Walk & Car Wash, whose proceeds will again go to benefit Village Community Services and its Village Music & Arts program, including the Voices of the Village musical performance ensemble, for people who have developmental disabilities. Village Community Services supports adults with disabilities in achieving their personal potential at home, at work and in the surrounding community. “The goal of this event is to raise awareness about people who have disabilities in our community, and to celebrate their abilities,” Dietz said. “Our band is an example of talent and joy for life.” Jon Dalgarn first organized the band, close to a decade ago, and he remains the leader of its current roster of nearly two dozen members. Voices of the Village includes vocal and instru-

mental positions for adults with a wide range of disabilities, who have played instruments as diverse as drums, keyboards, accordions, banjos, saxophones and even an Australian didgeridoo. Dalgarn had already worked with adults with disabilities through Village Community Services’ residential and vocational assistance programs, but with Voices of the Village, he believes that he’s been able to address another area of their development. “It really changes their lives,” Dalgarn said. “By being able to express themselves in this way, they learn a bit more about how to deal with the world, and the world learns how to deal with them. This is the best gig in the world, because there is so much unmitigated joy in their performances. We hand microphones to people who, in many ways, didn’t have a voice, so that they can sing and hear other people clapping for them. It’s about way more than music. They have a real passion for it.”

OSO — It’s an annual tradition that’s been going for at least 15 years, so the members of the Oso Fire Department hope the surrounding community will join them for yet another salmon bake and auction on Saturday, Sept. 7, from 4-7 p.m. at Oso Fire Station 37, located at 21824 State Route 530 NE in Arlington. Kate Sullivan, the public relations coordinator for the event for the past two years running, promised that attendees will get to see more than a dozen fire department personnel cooking up their meals, which will be served by members of the department’s women’s auxiliary. “We’ll have corn on the cob, and the Tulalip Tribes will be donating the salmon, like they do every year,” Sullivan said. Meals cost $12 per person, and raffle ticket sales will help fund needed big-ticket items for the fire department that its regular budget simply can’t cover. Last year’s

auction funded the purchase of AirPacs, portable air tank respirators that allow firefighters to enter burning buildings without asphyxiating from smoke or toxic fumes. “Our auction funds don’t go toward monthly maintenance,” Sullivan said. “They pay for what our personnel need to respond to fire and aid calls, to help keep the community safe.” The surrounding community is Sullivan’s favorite part of each year’s salmon bake and auction, since community members tend to turn out in large numbers for the event, and those who do attend tend to do so often enough to have developed a camaraderie that she finds heartwarming. For more information, log onto the Oso Fire Department’s Facebook event page for the Sept. 7 salmon bake and auction at events/201904773305234, or visit the Facebook page for the fire department itself at OsoFireDepartment.


Last year’s Friendship Walk & Car Wash drew dozens of attendees and raised more than $2,500 for Village Community Services and

Name: Casper Animal ID : 20813852 Breed : Domestic Shorthair / Mix Age : 11 years Gender : Male Color : Orange Spayed/Neutered : Yes

Name: Lucy Animal ID: 19426798 Breed: Retriever, Labrador / Border Collie Age: 2 years 5 months Gender: Female Color: Black Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Casper is a big orange dude looking for a new home. He has lived with other cats and enjoys their company. Casper is about 11 years old but don't let his age fool you, he can be very playful especially when it comes to toy mice.

Lucy is a high energy gal who loves to go for runs. She's in need of an active family who wants to take her out and about and she needs a lot of room to run! An active, large dog like this craves exercise and is a great family dog for adventures like camping, hiking and swimming. Children in the family should be over the age of 10 and able to participate in Lucy's training.

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

HOSPITAL FROM PAGE 1 will deal with reproductive issues, in light of the state Attorney General’s formally issued opinion on Wednesday, Aug. 21, that a public hospital district providing maternity care must also provide “substantially equivalent benefits, services or information” regarding contraception and abortion. “I’ve addressed this in meetings with the CEOs and CFOs of PeaceHealth and UW Medicine,” Cavanagh said. “Everyone is aware that it’s an issue that can’t be ignored, and that whatever promises we make must be legally binding and be able to be carried out.” Although Cascade Valley Hospital has never performed abortions before, according to Cavanagh, and is not involved in hospice, he pledged that they would abide by the law. “We don’t want any discrimination, which we’ve never done,” said Cavanagh, who echoed earlier suggestions by Cascade Valley Hospital CEO Clark Jones that Cascade Valley Hospital under PeaceHealth might

provide information or referrals for such services, rather than directly providing the services themselves, although negotiations to resolve these questions haven’t even begun yet. Cavanagh emphasized that the process leading toward a potential affiliation with PeaceHealth and UW Medicine began three years ago, when the Cascade Valley Hospital Board began considering whether it needed to affiliate with any other health care organizations in the first place. Around about two years ago, the CVH Board decided that it did, and had partnered with two other nonprofit community hospitals — Skagit Valley Hospital in Mount Vernon, and Island Hospital in Anacortes — before those three hospital boards began considering, in turn, possible affiliations among the larger nonprofit health care systems of Providence/ Swedish, Virginia Mason and PeaceHealth/UW Medicine. “It’s been a very long process,” said Cavanagh, who echoed Jones’ arguments that independent hospitals have limited lifespans in the

elective abortions and the prescription of “Death with Dignity” medication are not commonly carried out by hospitals anyway. “Hospitals, for the most part, are an expensive way to obtain such services,” said Steiger, who added that the law requires a patient to make two oral requests for the “Death with Dignity” medication, at least two weeks apart, before the physician can prescribe them. “And no one is sitting in the hospital for two weeks, waiting to ask again.” Steiger proudly touted PeaceHealth’s priority on serving poor and vulnerable patients, regardless of their age, race, gender or sexual orientation, and called out the Attorney General’s lack of clarification about exactly what constitutes “substantially equivalent benefits, services or information.”

Dr. Tim Cavanagh “Our lawyers are still interpreting his statement,” Steiger said. “Nobody completely understands what it means.” One point on which Steiger is certain is that patients of the Cascade Valley and Skagit Valley hospitals will not see their services subtracted from. “Every community we’ve come into, we’ve added services, not stopped them,” Steiger said. “Our San Juan Island Medical Center is the most recent example. We are so looking forward to starting the process of working with local leaders. It’s going to be exciting.”

voted in favor of entering into negotiations with PeaceHealth on Aug. 29, the Island Hospital Board voted not to negotiate with any of the three larger nonprofit health care systems, and will instead continue searching for a potential partner with the aid of a community advisory board. “We’ll do our best to keep the public informed throughout this process,” Cavanagh said. “Our main goal is to maintain health services for our community. If we don’t affiliate, we won’t survive. At the same time, none of our decisions have been made in haste.” Nancy Steiger, CEO and CMO of PeaceHealth’s St. Joseph Medical Center, considers it an honor to have been invited into this potential partnership, and amplified one of Cavanagh’s points by asserting that

current economic climate, especially with the rollout of the Affordable Care Act. “The question of whom we might affiliate with has been as complex as the question of whether we needed to affiliate with anyone at all, or at what level we need to affiliate with them.” Cavanagh explained that Cascade Valley Hospital couldn’t afford either a lowlevel affiliation of shared clinic services or a joint venture in which each partner would pay an equal share. “Which leaves full integration,” Cavanagh said. “We wouldn’t be selling the district’s assets, but we’d be leaving the financial responsibilities up to them. We believe this would allow us to operate on a higher level, not just to survive, but to thrive and increase the quality and levels of our health care.” Cavanagh reported that the CVH Board spent six months visiting PeaceHealth’s other affiliated partners and checking their records, and determined that they were the best fit for Cascade Valley.
