MARYSVILLE — A little misting of rain wasn’t going to stop Christina Heisley’s family of superheroes from trick-or-treating on Marysville’s Third Street on this Halloween Thursday, Oct. 31. “Do you want them divided up by DC and Marvel?” Heisley asked a photographer snapping a shot of her children in costume, as 5-yearold Aurora as Supergirl, 8-year-old Jackson as Captain America, and 10-year-olds Joe and John as Iron Man and Superman, respectively, took a moment to tuck into the bags of candy they’d collected midway through their tour of the merchants of historic downtown Marysville. “This is our second year coming out here. We had a great time last year. It’s just fun to shop

and see what’s up. The kids even got some full-size candy bars.” Among the visitors to Darilee Bedmar’s elaborate Halloween display at Third Street Books were her sonin-law Jacob Nanfito, dressed as Hulk Hogan, and his small son Miles, dressed as the Incredible Hulk. “We’ve been coming here since the trick-or-treating on Third Street started,” said Jacob Nanfito, who also brought his fairy princess daughter Isabel. “Isabel likes the suckers, but I like those candy dots. Miles will eat just about anything, though,” he laughed. Dana and Lorene Wren, of Wrenhaven Vintage Market on Third Street, donned pirate finery to dispense their candy, this time inside of their store, since last Halloween SEE TREAT, PAGE 2

MARYSVILLE — Snohomish County Executive John Lovick’s message to the Rotary Club of Marysville on Wednesday, Oct. 30, was far more personal than political. While Lovick answered questions about the County Courthouse and addressed pressing area concerns such as transportation, he set the tone for his remarks by recalling how Brent Castano, a Marysville Rotarian in attendance, had sent Lovick a check in support of his re-election campaign as Snohomish County Sheriff. “People might forget what you say or do, but they will never forget how you make them feel,” Lovick said. “When I was still serving in the state Legislature,

I’d come to Cedarcrest Middle School and spoken to Brent’s class. Life is about building relationships.” While Lovick drew laughter from the crowd by noting the number of cars he’s since bought from Castano at Roy Robinson Chevrolet in Marysville, the Snohomish County Executive was serious as he reported the trend of economic growth that he’s spotted in the county, from more business and residential buildings being constructed to more money being spent at local businesses. “Snohomish County’s jobless rate is lower than both the state and national averages,” Lovick said. “The county budget that’s been submitted is the first time that we’ve been able to add to the reserve fund in many, many years.
