MARYSVILLE — The Marysville-Pilchuck High School Drama Club is presenting “Peter Pan” as its fall play at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9, in the school’s auditorium, marking the first run of this play at M-PHS in Roy Klementsen’s 10 years at the school’s Drama Director. “For a change of pace, I asked the students, ‘What play would you like to do this year?’” Klementsen said. “I let the students research and look up many, many plays, and in the end, this was the show of choice. I found that interesting, since the play that they chose was written almost 110 years ago.” The first challenge the production faced was the fact

that Peter Pan flew in the original production, which forced the Drama Club to do some creative problemsolving. “We have low stage ceilings, so bringing in a flying company would have added thousands of dollars to our small budget,” Klementsen said. “Another challenge we faced was how big the scope of this show really is. There are five huge scene changes and many sets, including the large Darling household and a pirate ship, complete with a huge mast and a plank. There are many specialty costumes in the show too, so with a cast of 22 students, it was a daunting task to put everything together in the short amount of time that we had.” Klementsen deemed “Peter SEE ‘PETER PAN’, PAGE 2

Incumbents leading in City Council races BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — As of Thursday, Nov. 7, at 4:46 p.m., the incumbents of the Marysville City Council appeared to be keeping their jobs by comfortable margins. In the Position 1 race, Jeffrey Vaughan’s 4,704 votes, or 69.54 percent of the votes, were leading Elijah Olson’s 2,017 votes, or 29.82 percent of the votes. “The way I look at it, this election wasn’t about the past year, or the past two years, but the past 10 years,” said Vaughan, touting his accomplishments alongside his fel-

low City Council members during that time. “We’ve worked with a team effort toward a common vision, and told the people what we were doing, and voters seem to have responded to that. They can see the positive changes that have occurred in this city, which we plan to continue.” Vaughan described himself as “humbled” to be given the responsibility of “focusing on what’s important to our citizens,” and encouraged all Marysville citizens, whether they voted for him or not, to approach him with their concerns. “We need our citizens to be

more involved, and to share their ideas and feedback with us,” said Vaughan, who plans to make a priority out of bringing more employers to Marysville, both through an industrial north end and a revitalized downtown. “I’ve enjoyed meeting people through this campaign,” said Olson, who credited his ground game, his volunteers and nearly $1,300 in donations with helping him get as far as he did in this election. “It was an honor to meet Jeff Vaughan. He treated me like a real human being, and we had an amicable relationship throughout. When I called to congratulate him, he even

offered me some words of wisdom and encouraged me to keep going.” While Olson expects he’ll make another bid for the City Council, he laughed and acknowledged that he’d like to take a break for a while in the meantime. “I was asking people to take a risk on me, since I’m young and I have a lot of passion,” Olson said. “I do learn from my experiences, so I’ll try to incorporate these lessons, but I still believe in the central importance of upholding liberty.” Olson thanked his girlfriend in particular for taking much of the filing work of his

campaign upon herself. In the Position 3 race, Jeff Seibert’s 4,030 votes, or 59.57 percent of the votes, were leading B.J. Guillot’s 2,694 votes, or 39.82 percent of the votes. “You never know what the voters will do, but they apparently believe that I’ve done a good job of representing them, so it’s thanks to them that I’m here,” Seibert said. Before his current term ends, Seibert is focusing his attentions on the city budget for the coming year, after which he’s eager to tackle the challenge of traffic congesSEE RACES, PAGE 2
