ARLINGTON — As the Arlington Community Food Bank headed into its Thanksgiving distributions, its members touted the increased support they’ve received from volunteers and contributing agencies, even as they hoped it would be enough to meet the increased need that they face. “Through diligent reports of our distributions to Volunteers of America, we’ve upped their contributions from 4 percent of our food in 2012 to 5 percent in 2013, which is not small,” said Jerrie Inman, a member of the Arlington Community Food Bank Board of Directors, on Friday, Nov. 22. “We have 82 active volunteers, but between Board members and regular volunteers, our

families and friends, and the young people that we get from schools and community groups, we’ll probably be close to 100 volunteers during the Thanksgiving week. Of course, we already have close to 475 families signed up for this year, as opposed to the 350 we served last year.” Inman estimated that the Arlington Community Food Bank has been adding between 10-20 new families each week, with that number running closer to 20 families a week within the past two months. “The reduction of food stamp benefits at the start of this month was a big factor,” Inman said. “We’re also seeing more homeless people. We prepare special food baskets for them, with food items that SEE NEED, PAGE 2

Presidents students explain why they are thankful BY AMY WADKINS

For The Arlington Times

ARLINGTON — Students at Presidents Elementary School know it’s a time of year to be thankful. They also expect to eat a grand dinner with family, although they are more than a bit befuddled when it comes to the details of cooking a turkey. The boys and girls in Bonnie Johnson and Shannon Kjellesvik’s firstgrade classroom on Nov. 20 discussed the Thanksgiving holiday and traditions. Avah Wagner, 6, plans to celebrate with family. Her grandma made the best turkey dinner last year and she’s going to cook this year’s Thanksgiving turkey, Avah said.


“My grandma makes the best food like my mom,” she said. “She put some pretend fruit on the table so it would look kind of nice, then she lit the candles, and then we prayed.” Avah added that she doesn’t know how her grandma cooks the turkey so well but guesses she needs at least 10 minutes to get it done just right. “It’s hard to cook a turkey,” Avah said. It could take seconds to grill the perfect turkey, said Brooklyn Corter, 7. Her family gathered last year for Thanksgiving at her aunt and uncle’s house. “We ate a lot food and the little kids sat at a little table, and there were a lot of older

C e l e b r At i o n

people so they sat at the big table,” Brooklyn said. “Last year I ate olives. I love black olives.” Nash Rorick, 7, plans to celebrate by eating turkey with his cousins and making turkey decorations at home. If he were to cook the turkey, he’d use the microwave. “My microwave only goes for 30 seconds so we would have to take it out and put it back in, take it out and put it back in,” Nash said. Kailey Bisson, 6, said her dad cooks the turkey on a Traeger grill. She and her family usually eat at her grandma’s house. Being thankful is an important part of the holiday, Kailey added. She’s particularly thankful this year for being able to go

they don’t need to cook — jars of peanut butter and cans on non-perishables with pull-open lids. We’ve also seen more kids than last year in our ‘Meals ‘til Monday’ program, which supplies school children with enough food over the weekend to last them between the meals served by their schools. The number of kids in that has nearly doubled since the start of last year.” Inman deemed the Arlington Community Food Bank’s “centrally located” address, between Smokey Point and the downtown of Olympic Avenue, and its access to public transportation, one block away from a bus stop, as draws for area homeless people. While Volunteers of America has pitched in even more this year, and the community has donated generously toward a new food bank facility, the food bank still has less money to work with, even with grants of $5,000 from Bank of America and $1,000 from Union Bank to help offset expenses such as operating costs. “From computers and lights to refrigerators and freezers, we have all the

same expenses as a grocery store, except we don’t charge our customers anything to shop here,” Inman said. “Kimberly-Clark used to buy us two big cases of toilet paper a month before they closed. We haven’t been able to afford any new peanut butter, flour, rice or sugar since 2012, when those items cost us $26,000 out of our own pockets for the year. It’s wonderful that so many people have supported our efforts to get a new building, and we truly do appreciate it, but those funds are earmarked, so we need to use them for that purpose, even when we need to keep the lights on here.” While Inman always welcomes more volunteers, the crew on the Friday before Thanksgiving week included both seasoned veterans and newcomers to the Arlington Community Food Bank, the latter including Jordan Bryant and Tanner Young, who were doing mission work for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. “Regardless of what religious beliefs people might have, giving service to others is a benefit to all people,” Young said on Nov. 22. “This is my first time here, and it’s been really fun. There are a lot of nice people here.” “Service to your fellow

“I get to work with my friends, and when you can work with your friends, that’s the best job of all.” Brandon Edmonds Volunteer beings is service to your God,” Bryant said. By contrast, Derey Edmonds and her son Brandon, who is disabled, are old hands at the Arlington Community Food Bank. They’ve been volunteering at the food bank since Brandon was 13 years old, before it had moved to its current location. Now 20 years old, Brandon has received exactly the sort of outlet for his talents and enthusiasm that Derey had hoped he would, and he can’t stop from grinning as he helps her sort food. “I get to work with my friends, and when you can work with your friends, that’s the best job of all,” Brandon Edmonds said. “My mom is a teacher, and she taught me how to add and subtract from counting how much food is in each box.” “I wanted to give him an opportunity to do some volunteer work, and he’s had different jobs here over the years,” Derey Edmonds said. “It’s helped him develop employable skills that are transferrable to other jobs. So many people are in need, and there have been times when we’ve had so little food to give them. I’d encourage everyone to step up and do what they can. I’ve raised all my kids to do volunteer work, and this is a wonderful place to be able to help meet the community’s needs.”

‘Time of Giving’ highlights local nonprofits BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

TULALIP — “Quality of life is the core of all our actions, and the Marysville community epitomizes that,” said Caldie Rogers, president and CEO of the Greater Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce, as she introduced seven of the Chamber’s nonprofit members during the “Time of Giving” Business before Hours on Friday, Nov. 22. Chavvahn Gade of the American Cancer Society touted its annual Relay For Life events in Marysville and Everett, as well as its annual Making Strides event in Everett, as helping to raise funds for programs ranging from wigs and prosthetics for cancer patients to its free ride and 24-hour hotline services. “Relay takes place overnight because cancer doesn’t sleep, so for that night, neither will we,” Gade said. “It’s raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in Marysville alone.” Marysville American Legion Post 178 2nd Vice Cmdr. Jennifer Smolen welcomed the community to rent out the Post Hall and check out its recent renovations. “We’re thrilled to be hosting the Chamber Board’s Christmas party,” Smolen said. “Every rental of our building helps support the Legion.” Among the Legion’s local programs are ceremonies and gatherings for patriotic occasions such as Memorial Day and Veterans Day, as well as flag collection and retirement ceremonies on Sept. 11. “We’ve partnered with the Marysville Naval Junior ROTC unit and adopted the 483rd Quartermaster unit at the Marysville Armed Forces Reserve Center,” Smolen said. “We also support Operation Comfort Warriors, which supplies aid packages to military members who are recovering from war wounds.” Tania Siler of the Marysville Goodwill reported how their new youth aerospace program is taking students to visit Boeing and preparing them for manufacturing certification courses at Everett Community College, all while it gets its free tax preparation services ready to start shortly after the New Year. With construction on the long-awaited Marysville Historical Society museum finally underway, MHS President Ken Cage explained his group’s motivation. “We think there’s a value in preserving the history of a town, because a town becomes a hometown to you when you get a sense of it as

a place,” Cage said. “People who live in a town benefit from knowing more about it as a place.” Lt. Dawn Apuan of the Salvation Army Everett Corps noted that the group’s Marysville branch serves a weekly hot meal for those in need at the Legion Post Hall, while the Everett Corps is

responsible for a cold weather shelter and two transitional housing programs. She urged community members to look for Salvation Army collection kettles starting on Nov. 30. Kathie Roon, co-president of Soroptimist International of Marysville, credited her group’s fall auction and spring “Junktique” with generating

funds to support programs on behalf of women and girls, 90 percent of which she estimated are reinvested in the Marysville community. “We conduct the Student of the Month program with the Kiwanis, and last year raised $17,500 in scholarships for local students,” Roon said. “We also call

attention to the problem of human sex trafficking, and present potential solutions.” Robin Warren summarized the Marysville Community Food Bank’s achievements for the year as 1,199 families served, and a growth in the “Food for Thought” weekend meal program from 18 students

at its outset to 227 just in the Nov. 22-25 weekend. “Of course, the backbone of our group is our volunteers,” said Warren, who accounted for Marysville Community Food Bank Director Dell Deierling’s absence from the Business Before Hours because “he’s working there right now.”

The growing pressure on teachers


hen Marysville parents send kids off to school to learn and take steps toward becoming good citizens, their legal responsibility takes a holiday when the kids board the bus, not picking up again until they are safely off the bus at the end of a school day. What happens in between is mostly the teachers’ responsibility. Mission impossible? Most of the time things go right but there will be times when children don’t fit with the program and that happens more with the passage of time. Schools adjust as best they can. At worst, a class begins like a train loading at a station. Once under way, passengers (students) keep jumping off and the train stops to let the crew (teacher) round them up and reload them. The crew wears its self out chasing strays and the train makes slow progress. A study done in an African village contrasts sharply. One teacher tends one class of 100 kids, all of whom behave and tend to their lessons. The difference is that the African kids were cultural clones of each other. And their parents paid out-of-pocket school fees and expect to see a return on their investment. An American classroom is more like Noah’s Ark. Different faiths, national origins, race, cultural background, aspirations, life experiences, parental support, economics and so on. No out-of-pocket expense for their education. As to the readiness


Bob Graef

of Noah’s mix for learning, some sop up lessons faster than teachers can present them while others refuse to be taught. Time was, back in the 1930s and ‘40s, when teachers believed they could batch-process students. All were expected to perform up to one standard and most met general expectations. In addition to charging ahead, the quickest minds were tasked with helping slower learners. Much good came from that. Exceptional kids learned social responsibility while discovering their exceptionality and our world is better for all of that. That was then, this is now, and the effects of the new mix land squarely in teachers’ laps, sometimes as Mission Impossible. Consider the issue of transparency. Everything a student does or is expected to do is entered (by the teacher) into an iPad linked to a district database. Parents own passwords that let them access progress and assignments. Little Susie can’t get off by saying, “But he didn’t tell us when it was due.” Every grade, assignment and test-result is expected to be there to be examined.


Sounds great, right? But consider that quite a few parents don’t bother to access that record and that supercritical parents use the information to fuel criticisms. Pressure from that level of transparency can make data-entry as nerve-wracking as filing an Income Tax report, the difference being that for teachers, every school day becomes an April 15. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation interviewed 10,000 teachers to get an insider’s view of the profession. Most were generally positive toward their work while offering key findings about how to keep great teachers in their profession. Challenges facing students are increasing. Forty-six percent of teachers report that fewer students are prepared to handle challenging work. Fifty-six percent report more students living in poverty. Fortynine percent see more students coming to school hungry. These changes make teaching and learning more difficult. Teaching isn’t a bell-to-bell profession. Planning and evaluating and detailed posting of student information stretch the average work day to 10 hours and 40 minutes. Teachers are eager to have their methods evaluated, hoping for helpful input. With peace and job satisfaction at risk, they are open to review by principals and peers. Only 25 percent believe that

standardized tests tell the whole story about student achievement and just 45 percent believe that students take tests seriously enough to perform at the best of their ability. Contrary to popular belief, salaries do not top the list of factors affecting retention of good teachers. Supportive leaders, in-school support-staff and time to connect with peers all ranked higher. A 62 percent majority of teachers with five or more years in an assignment reported a rise in behaviors that interfere with teaching and learning. What is most alarming is that disturbing behaviors such as bullying and fighting increased most among elementary students, less at middle school and still lower at high school. This predicts a storm-surge of social problems working up through the grades. If you’re not married to a teacher you might think teachers don’t work hard enough. If you are married to one, you’ve seen your mate come home incapable of doing anything other than stare at a wall, used up and burnt out. Emptied by the needs of more than 160 active teens. If we want inspirational teaching for our children, public education should work toward depressurizing the teacher’s day—if for no other reason than that pressure is infectious. Less can be more. Less pressure, more results. Comments may be addressed to

Cub Scouts collect for Marysville Community Food Bank “This is definitely a cause that’s an ongoing benefit to the community as a whole. The holiday season is a prime time for such giving.” While Ustaris estimated that last year’s turnout of as many as two dozen Cub Scouts was “probably the biggest turnout” they’d had up to that point, Pack 180 Cubmaster Matt Gibson credited 33 Scouts with going out to collect on behalf of the food bank this year, from their homes to local grocery stores such as Safeway. “They’ve put a lot of hard

holidays can last us several months down the road, just barely long enough to reach the Letter Carriers’ Drive in May, which reminds people to think of us again. It’s a funny cycle.

MARYSVILLE — For the second year in a row, the Marysville Community Food Bank got a helping hand from the community courtesy of the members of Cub Scout Pack 180, who showed up carrying enough non-perishable food items to nearly double their total of 352 pounds from last year. The Cub Scouts handed over their 668 pounds of food items to Marysville Community Food Bank Director Dell Deierling on

the evening of Thursday, Nov. 21, as Grace Ustaris, committee chair for Cub Scout Pack 180, explained how her kids had collected that much food, more than three weeks earlier than they did last year. “They not only went to their family members and friends, but they also scoured their neighborhoods, and even held parties where they asked for food instead of gifts,” Ustaris said.

Arlington Garden Club’s second annual Holiday Garden Art and Crafts Show at the Gleaneagle Golf Course Country Club, just down the hill from the high school — Tracy Borreson made sure the handmade decorations of Matilda Jane Creations were hung with care from their wire-frame Christmas tree. While the final totals had yet to be determined as of press time, AHS Art Club Treasurer Breanne Johnston estimated that the day’s 18 vendors yielded approximately $200 for the student group. “We’ve already earmarked that money for assisted living painting instruction,” said Johnston, who explained that eight AHS Art Club students

Happy Thanksg iving!

will become teachers on Saturday, Nov. 30, when they teach residents of elder care and nursing homes how to paint with watercolors. “This will be my first experience teaching someone else, but I’ve always wanted to be an art teacher. When I joined the Art Club, I got to hang out with creative people, but it’s also made my art skills better.” As she and her peers served up fresh-baked donut-holes to Holiday Shoppe attendees, Johnston acknowledged that the Art Club has become more community service oriented as well.

‘Small Business Saturday’ returns Nov. 30

Every day is about a small business when you own one. That point is clear to people like Brent Emory, owner of E&E Lumber and Home Center. The business has been at 1364 State Ave. in Marysville for more than 40 years. “We’re open every day,” Emory said. “We’re doing something every day, every month, and we’re having fun on a day-to-day basis.” The business offers military and senior discounts, as well as 20 percent off all in-store merchandise on the first Saturday of every month. This year, Emory is again planning to be part of Small Business Saturday, set for Nov. 30. “It’s a great concept,” he said. “We are recognizing it and participating however we can.” Small Business Saturday was

started three years ago by American Express to promote local stores across the country. It asks people to shop locally the Saturday after Thanksgiving to celebrate and rally behind small businesses. Marysville’s small businesses make up 90 percent of its business community and “serve as the heart and soul of the city,” according to Caldie Rogers, president and CEO of the Greater Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce. “They work long hours, provide local jobs, generate city revenue for the services our residents need, and donate their time and their money to our local non-profits, putting the quality of life in our way of life,” Rogers said. The Greater Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce is urging all residents to shop Marysville on Small Business Saturday, added Rogers.

The Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce is also asking people to shop locally on Nov. 30, said Chamber President Kristen Granroth. A day like Small Business Saturday encourages people to discover products and services that are available locally, and the hope is those new customers will turn into repeat customers, she said. “If one person goes downtown to buy something and sees another business where they might be able to get products or services, it’s a success in my book,” Granroth said. “Shopping locally all year long is our go-to message. It only benefits all of us; our schools, our lifestyles, our businesses.” At least 20 businesses are new to the Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber this year, according to Granroth. At 212 members, the chamber has hit its highest membership total yet. Chamber Business After Hours events occur once a month and have helped business owners better support one another, Granroth said. David Boulton, owner of Flowers By George at 335 N. Olympic Ave., participates along with other Arlington business owners in Super Saturdays, where customers receive discounts on purchases made on the first Saturday of every month. He and others have blue doormats they put outside to encourage people to shop small. His doormat will definitely be out on Nov. 30, Boulton said. “It’s our tax dollars staying in the community,” he said. “I’m looking forward to it, and I’m hoping it will be a good Saturday.”

Boulton, who is a second-generation owner of his business, promoted last year’s Small Business Saturday through the Flowers By George Facebook page. He’s noticed TV ads promoting the day this year, and believes those will help to generate more interest in the event. “I don’t remember the TV ads last year, and I’m just impressed by them,” Boulton said. “I love the idea and mindset of people doing the big-box store shopping on Friday, getting that part out of their system, and coming downtown where they can find a place to park, usually right out in front of our store … I just love the concept.” Arlington Hardware and Lumber at 215 N. Olympic Ave. has offered Super Saturday discounts for the past 25 years, according to owner Taylor Jones. Repeat customers look forward to those busy and fun Saturdays, he said. Small Business Saturday is another day of the year to show support, Jones added. “Any time they try to get something going for downtown small businesses, I’m supportive of that,” he said. “I want to see downtown Arlington thrive.” Small Business Saturday might make a difference, but a large part of what has made Wagner Jewelers at 9611 State Ave. in Marysville successful is quality customer service, according to owner Doug Wagner. “If you’re in independent jeweler you don’t have the money for advertising, so you’ve got to build the business on customer relationships,” he said. “Basically, we get

David Boulton, owner of Flowers By George, plans to put out a doormat that encourages people to shop small on Nov. 30 for Small Business Saturday. advertising by word of mouth. That’s how this business was built, and that’s how it will continue to be successful.” While a one-day push for shopping small will resonate, one-day events often fade as quickly as they come, Rogers noted. That’s why the Greater Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce is working on the final touches to an upcoming launch of the next Buy Local campaign. A part of the campaign is planned through newspaper ads to educate people about how local dollars are used. “The new innovations developed over the last few months will produce even greater success for businesses of all sizes,” Rogers said. “We will grow our local economy.”

Camp Fire Club drops off shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child


MARYSVILLE — The Amen! Christian Bookstore at the intersection of State

Avenue and Fourth Street received a special delivery on Saturday, Nov. 23, as a dozen children dropped off 14 giftfilled shoeboxes for the annu-

al Operation Christmas Child campaign. Sherry Bogus, one of the adult leaders of the “Kooky Kats” Camp Fire Club,

explained that one of her fellow Camp Fire mothers had shared with the group how Operation Christmas Child collects shoeboxes packed with toys, school supplies and hygiene items, and then sends them to needy children around the world. “Each of our kids was able to choose whether they were sending their gifts to a boy or a girl, and what age they wanted their kids to be,” said Bogus, who noted that the Kooky Kats assembled their shoeboxes within two weeks. “It not only taught them how to make plans and follow through on them, but I think they also learned a lot about the differences between America and other countries. Our kids were surprised by some of the things that children in other countries can’t take for granted. Here, if you want clean drinking water, you just turn on the tap, but there are parts of the world where it’s not that simple.” “My dad comes from Africa, and I knew that he didn’t have much to play with as a kid,” said Amie Konteh, one of the kids of the Kooky Kats. “There are people who don’t have running water or toys or electricity, so we wanted to help them have fun,” said fellow Kooky Kat kid Katie McFarlane, who figured out what size of T-shirt

Christian Bookstore in Marysville on Nov. 23. to send her 5-year-old recipient by having her own 5-yearold sister try on shirts. The rest of the Kooky Kats agreed that it was important to help other children enjoy some of the same benefits that they themselves could scarcely live without, to the point that they wished they could do more. “It was hard to decide on just a few things to get them,” Camryn Zaborowski said. “There were so many choices that I just stuck to the basics,” said Camryn’s sister, Michayla Zaborowski. “And there was only a little bit of space in the shoebox,” Taylor Kendall said. Sue Leber, manager of the Amen! Christian Bookstore, deemed it a delight to receive

so many gift-filled shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child in a single drop-off. “What delightful, enthusiastic children,” Leber said on Nov. 23, as she anticipated that she was on target to collect approximately 1,200 such shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child by Monday, Nov. 25, which would roughly equal her total for last year. “When the economy was better, we were collecting as many as 3,000 shoeboxes a year, but this is pretty good for this economic climate. We must have collected more than 25,000 shoeboxes over the past 15 years, and I feel privileged that I can collect them for Operation Christmas Child and be the one to say, ‘Thank you.’”

Navarre said. “I actually have a thing for glass ornaments.” “I bought my first Alpaca nine years ago,” Picard said. “Its fibers are warmer than wool and finer than cashmere. I sell Alpaca fiber socks to hunters who swear by them.” “This show is twice as good as last year’s,” said Mike Skurok, of SK Metalworks in Everett, who also shows his wares at the Arlington Farmers’ Market. “I’ll be here again next year.” “It’s a really good show,” agreed fellow Everett metal

artist Dennis Cant. “It’s good when local folks come out to support their own, because that benefits us all.” Judy Ness was in charge of vendors for this year’s show, and reported that the event apparently ran smoothly from their end. “Based on my informal survey of the vendors, they seem pleased,” Ness said. “A lot of folks expanded their booths, but I don’t think we can get any bigger next year,” she laughed. “Oh yes, I anticipate we’ll be doing this again next year.”

While Judy Cales was shilling reindeer-headed pencils for the Arlington Garden Club, she also offered positive testimonials after sampling some Jochimsen allnatural maple syrup from the table next to her. One table over, Everett’s Nadine Carrington looked on raptly as Marysville’s Dorothy Power explained how she created her lap-quilts. “I designed the appliqués myself,” Power said. “Each one is a one-of-a-kind. I’ve been doing this for 15 years. Back when I was still teaching school, I didn’t have time for it,” she laughed. Arlington’s Amy Navarre found an old friend of hers, Alan Pickard of Darrington, pitching his Alpaca fleece clothing at the art and crafts show. “I live right in the neighborhood, and I like to find Christmas gifts early,”

Weller Funeral Home hosts Holiday Remembrance


ARLINGTON — Weller Funeral Home invites members of the surrounding community to take part in its 13th annual Holiday Remembrance Gathering at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7, to honor the lives of their loved ones, both veterans and civilians. Carrie Stucky, office manager of Weller Funeral Home in Arlington, promised

attendees that they could expect words of inspiration, musical performances, fellowship and support from the hour-long program, which will additionally provide them with an opportunity to light candles in memory of their loved ones as they enter the establishment. “The service will open with [Smokey Point Community Church Pastor] Bryce McFadden offering a meditation and words of comfort, followed by a musi-

cal selection performed by Jackie Fuller and Peach Ice,” said Stucky, who added that the presentation would also include a DVD slideshow of names and photos of those who have passed away this year, whose families Weller Funeral Home has served. “After this, we’ll take time to honor our local veterans who have passed away this year, and who did not receive military honors when they passed away, through a mass committal.”

The Washington Army National Guard is set to present the colors at this point, and the program will wrap up with another musical selection, followed by a reception complete with refreshments. “Since the holidays can be particularly difficult for those who have lost a loved one, this event has always been a chance for families that we have served over the last year, as well as anyone else in the community who has lost a loved one, to come together and remember their loved ones, and to connect with others who have also experienced that loss,”

Stucky said. “The holidays can be especially troubling, whether you’ve lost someone recently or it’s been years since they passed away.” While Weller Funeral Home sends out personal invitations to the families whom its staff has served over the course of the previous two years — for this year’s Holiday Remembrance Gathering, from the start of 2012 through the final months of 2013 — Stucky emphasized that the community as a whole is welcome to attend the event, and whether Weller Funeral Home has served their families recently, or even at all,


they can expect to receive comfort and support for their own grief. “There is no set of qualifications, as everyone’s experience with grief is different,” Stucky said. “There is no process to qualify. The invitations we mail out do request that families RSVP, but if someone from the community wants to stop in for the event, we will not turn anyone away.” Weller Funeral Home is located at 327 N. MacLeod Ave. in Arlington. For more information, call 360-4352509, email or log onto www.

Operation Christmas Hope aims to help kids in need BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

ARLINGTON — Arlington American Legion Post 76 has raised money for more than 20 years to buy toys for the children of families who receive holiday food baskets from the Arlington Community Food Bank, but this year, they can’t do it alone. “The Food Bank hoped that we could help cover the difference,” said Tina Davis of the Union Bank branch in downtown Arlington, one of the coordinators of this year’s Operation Christmas Hope. “When we found out there were more than 700 kids who needed our help, we were blown away and left wondering how we could manage to pick up the tab for that many, until we realized that we all planned to do something and got smart about how to do it. With about 16 different banks and credit unions in the Arlington and Smokey Point areas, that’s only 45 gifts per financial institution.” Although Davis hastened to add that the institution in question took the time to clear their participation in this campaign with both their respective employees and their corporate chains of command, she looks forward to enlisting the aid of the surrounding community, from staff members’ families and friends, to the banks’ and credit unions’ customers, on behalf of this seasonally spirited charitable venture.

Miriam Villalba picked out a gift for her 3-year-old girl at one of Arlington American Legion Post 76’s previous ‘Toys for Kids’ holiday toy distributions. “When I was 15 years old, my dad was diagnosed with cancer,” Davis said. “This was the 1970s, so his Social Security application took months. We found out that someone had put our names in for a Christmas basket when boxes of food and gifts showed up. My mom was crying. Even my dad had tears in his eyes. I was just so touched that someone would take the time to put together an assortment of gifts for people they didn’t even know.” Operation Christmas Hope will be accepting unwrapped gifts — as well as financial donations through “giving trees,” where you can choose tags, and the members of Arlington American Legion Post 76 will do the shopping for you — through banks

and credit unions throughout Arlington and Smokey Point up through Tuesday, Dec. 17. Davis expects that the upper floors of the Legion building at 115 N. Olympic Ave. in Arlington will again serve as the distribution site for the toys. “We didn’t think it would happen this year, before Tina got involved,” said Sara Katanik of the Arlington Community Food Bank. “We already have 400 families signed up, and for many of their children, these gifts are the only ones they’re able to get. If we can pull this off, it’ll be a miracle.” For more information, call Katanik at 425-2203585, Davis at 360-4356711 or Vanessa Pawley, of the Union Bank branch in Smokey Point, at 425-3885595.

Arlington hoops ready for season BY LAUREN SALCEDO

ARLINGTON — The holiday season marks the beginning of another highly anticipated part of the year — basketball season. Arlington High School’s boys basketball team began tryouts on Monday, Nov. 18, and the Eagles are already prepping themselves for the month ahead. “We are really excited, especially coming off of last year — we had a really good year last year,” said head coach Nick Brown. Last year, the Eagles advanced to the state tournament at the Tacoma Dome, ultimately placing fifth in the state. “We had a lot of success last season. Being fifth in state was a really good accomplishment, but we are setting our goals again and readjusting where we are going to be.” The team is first focusing on taking one of the top spots in the Western Conference 4A North

Division, which represents a number of successful local teams. “We are just looking forward to being in the thick of it — you know, we have a real tough league, so we are just worried about our league right now,” said Brown. “We just want to do what we can and be the best we can. Lake Stevens is really good, Mount Vernon is really good, Monroe, Snohomish — they are all really good teams, so we’re just hoping to be in the thick of that. We hope to be in the top spots in the league, and after that we’ll look at where our next goals will be.” The Eagles open the 2013 season with a non-league matchup against former rivals Marysville-Pilchuck, now a 3A school. With their experience at the Tacoma Dome, new recruits will be looking to seasoned players such as Noah Jones, Bradey Brummel and Kaleb Bryson for leadership on the court.

“Noah Jones, Kaleb Bryson and Bradey Brummel are going to be leaders,” noted Brown. “They all went to state last year. We are losing Terry Dawn, AJ Passalaqua and Russell Smithson, but we have a really good group coming in and we have some youth that are looking really good, so we are excited about the opportunity to show that talent in everything that we can do.” Dawn was the leading scorer for Arlington High School and he committed to playing for Central Washington earlier this year. Despite losing those three seniors to graduation, Arlington has several returners and a strong crop of newcomers. “We have big expectations coming back from making it to state last year,” said senior post Noah Jones. “We have big expectations and we also have to work five times as hard. We are losing Terry Dawn of course, but we have a lot

of guys coming back who all went to state last year. I think we have six seniors now, and having that type of leadership on our team is going to help us a lot. We have a few players coming up to varsity that I think are going to be really good.” The Eagles are ready to make a play for the state title again this year, but are setting their sights on the league title first. “We want to go back to state this year, of course,” said Jones. “It’s going to be tough because we have to go through Jackson still, but we are working really hard to get there.” Jackson was the last team to face the Eagles last season at the the state tournament, and took a 68-41 victory, moving on to take second place to Curtis. The Eagles face the Tomahawks for the season opener at 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 3, at Marysville-Pilchuck High School. .

Cougars return to the court BY LAUREN SALCEDO

LAKEWOOD — The Cougars have wrapped up their first week of practice and tryouts — and with a new coaching staff and a strong set of returning players, the team is eager to make a name for Lakewood basketball this season. “I feel this north Lakewood community is desperately yearning for a successful boys’ basketball program, and the future looks bright for us, as we will return the bulk of our team next season, and our AAU youth program features a whopping eight teams,” said head coach David Choi. “I am very confident with what we have now. In my years of coaching, I have never witnessed as much excitement and energy on the first day of tryouts. We have a brand new coaching staff and they play a huge role in that — Anthony Wiederkehr, Chris Soth and Sherman Pruitt.” Choi is hoping that his experience as an assistant

coach for Sehome and Thomas Jefferson high schools will bring strength to the basketball program at Lakewood. “There is so much energy here, and the community definitely wants a successful basketball program,” he said. “I think it’s awesome just seeing how much these kids love basketball.” The Cougars graduated all-league first team player Justin Peterson last year, who played football with Central Washington University this fall, but they return a group of strong juniors for this year’s roster. “We return Ryan Alford — he was second team all-league last year as a sophomore. Paul Coleman, Hunter Fritz, Chance Schueller — those are the four juniors we will be counting on a lot this season,” said Choi. “We also bring back senior Eljay Johnson, who was a varsity starter for us last season.” When deciding what the team should focus on going into their first few games,

Choi took a look at last year’s stats. “We need to take care of the ball more,” he said. “I was looking at the stats from last year and there was only one game where we had more assists than turnovers. It’s hard to win games when you are turning the ball over so much. That will be my job, to put them in the right position to succeed.” Choi also noted that the Cougars basketball program hasn’t recorded a winning season with an over .500 record since 2006. New associate head coach Anthony Wierderkehr was a member of that season’s winning team. “It’s cool to have him come back. I don’t know what it is, but we have a sense of confidence that is rubbing off on our players. The guys were really young last year. The bulk of our players are juniors,” said Choi. “I knew that the junior class would be really strong. They have so much experience playing varsity

basketball, and when you come back and play another year at the varsity level, you grow to appreciate the game even more.” The Cougars face Tyee on Wednesday, Dec. 4, in a home game at 6:45 p.m. It’s a game they have been eagerly awaiting since last season. “Lakewood lost the game to Tyee last year, so it’s awesome that we get to play them first — it’s like a redemption game. The team is looking forward to it. We have the game circled on the calendar because we are so excited to get things going and get started on this season. It’s not just me that has high expectations — it’s the players. They really believe in themselves. We don’t want to be just a good football school, we want to be an all-around athletic school. The recent success of the football team has gotten this community addicted to winning, and we want to build this basketball program up to its highest potential.”

Nativity Festival returns to Arlington Dec. 12-15


ARLINGTON — For the fourth year in a row, the Arlington Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be connecting visitors to the origins of Christmas through their Nativity Festival from Dec. 12-15. Cyndy Thompson, direc-

tor of public affairs for the Arlington Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, explained that the Nativity Festival was preceded by an annual Christmas concert, which started out with just a choir and a mini-orchestra on Sunday evening, before it expanded to cover both Saturday and Sunday, and


was eventually accompanied by a relatively small display of nativity sets in the church’s main hall. Children who visit won’t be the only ones dressing up for the occasion, since eight congregations have volunteered to supply at least five people each to pose for the live nativity, standing in shifts throughout the event.

“There will be some live babies as the Baby Jesus, but they can be replaced by a standby plastic baby if needed, in case a group can’t come up with their own baby, or if their baby gets too fussy,” Thompson laughed. One new wrinkle of this year’s Nativity Festival takes

it back to its roots, by bringing in the Stanwood High School Jazz Ensemble on Thursday, Dec. 12, at 7 p.m., followed by the Children’s Choir on Friday, Dec. 13, and Saturday, Dec. 14, at 6 p.m. on both days, and a choir concert at 7 p.m. on Dec. 14 and Sunday, Dec. 15. The Arlington Nativity

November 30, 2013


Festival will be hosted at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, located at 17222 43rd Ave. NE in Arlington, from 6-9 p.m. on Dec. 12-13, and from 3-8:30 p.m. on Dec. 14-15. Admission is free, and further details are available online at

‘Hometown Holidays’ return Dec. 7


ARLINGTON — Arlington’s annual Hometown Holidays will feature both familiar favorites and a few new twists this year on Saturday, Dec. 7, with perhaps the day’s most noticeable shift in scheduling occurring immediately

after the Santa Parade at noon on Olympic Avenue. “The tree-lighting ceremony this year will take place at Legion Park, right after the Santa Parade,” said Sarah Lopez, recreation manager for the city of Arlington. Lopez credited the Downtown Arlington

Business Association with contributing a whole new set of Christmas ornaments to decorate this year’s tree, “with lots more lights,” and promised that families who want to see Santa this year should find that process more convenient as well. “Kids will get to visit with Santa in the depot at Legion

Park from 1-3 p.m., so that we can keep the Legion Park gazebo free for musicians and other entertainers,” Lopez said. “Rather than waiting in line, families will be able to take a number, and take part in all the activities that Legion Park has to offer that afternoon, before their numbers are called.” Lopez credited the Lifeway Foursquare Church of Arlington with stepping up to provide cocoa and crafts for children, as well as the Festive Sweater Contest hosted by Pastor Chad Blood. While free covered wagon rides will take Hometown Holidays attendees up and down the length of Olympic Avenue that afternoon, from 12:30-4:30 p.m., starting from Arlington City Hall, the rest of downtown Arlington will offer its own festively themed attractions, from the Handmade Holiday Market at the Co-Op Supply store from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., to the Old-Fashioned Bake Sale at the City Hall plaza.

Those who wish to enter this year’s Santa Parade may preregister at City Hall,

Groups unite to provide cold weather shelter in Marysville BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — Marysville churches and community groups have come together to prevent those who are out on the streets from freezing to death this winter. Jason Brower, the service and missions deacon for the Damascus Road Church, received a number of donations from Soroptimist International of Marysville on Saturday, Nov. 23, to help his church serve as the site for Marysville’s new cold weather shelter, but Brower was quick to credit several other area churches with contributing their parishioners as volunteers to staff the cold weather shelter. “If people want to volunteer, we welcome them to contact their churches about taking part, since

we’re trying to get each participating church to provide all the volunteers for a given night of the week,” Brower said. “We still need crews for Tuesday and Wednesday nights. One person couldn’t deal with the numbers of people we’re potentially expecting to take in, so we want at least five to 12 volunteers for each night.” Brower and Jon Baylor, a fellow member of the Damascus Road Church who’s helping to coordinate the cold weather shelter, were moved by their experiences of working together at the Everett Gospel Mission. “God did it to break our hearts,” Brower said. “We saw that these folks needed the love of the gospel spoken into their hearts.” Brower and Baylor connected with Pastor Victor Rodriguez, of the Marysville

Free Methodist Church, who informed them of the work that Jim Strickland was already doing through the Marysville Hungry and Homeless Organization, also known as Marysville H2O, to coordinate the resources of churches and community groups on behalf of those in need. “I know Arlington has a portable cold weather shelter, and the Tulalip reservation has a homeless shelter for its own people, but I don’t know that Marysville has ever had its own shelter,” said Brower, who hopes to move a planned Dec. 6-7 training session for volunteers up to Nov. 29-30. “We’ll be covering how to check people in and address any number of issues through a mock service night. I’m even seeing if I can pull in any mountaineers to talk about cold weather injuries such as exposure, hypothermia or frostbite.”

While Judd & Black had supplied a stove to cook food for those staying in the 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. shelter, Soroptimist International of Marysville came up with hundreds of paper plates and cups, as well as plastic utensils, for them to eat their meals with, in addition to supplying some laundry detergent. Earlier in the year, the Rotary Club of Marysville and the Marysville Community Lunch program had donated 20 mattresses, with 20 accompanying pillows and sets of sheets. “This fits with our mission of helping women, girls and families,” Marysville Soroptimist Co-President Teresa Trivett said. “We’re also in favor of fostering a stronger sense of community by forging partnerships between fellow nonprofit organizations.” “I really have to thank Jim Strickland for getting

As we were looking at Arlington’s model, we realized that it wasn’t feasible for us to do a portable shelter like this, so by offering their own building as the shelter’s location,

they’ve really made it possible.” Volunteer teams will be on call, and will only be called upon to operate the shelter when the temperature drops below freezing. The Damascus Road Church is located at 1048 State Ave. in Marysville. For more information or to sign up, email Brower at jbrowerus@yahoo. com or Baylor at

‘Legends of the Blues’ concert set for Dec. 6 Center will be in a bluesy mood on the evening before Arlington’s Hometown Holidays, as the Arlington


Arts Council partners with the Washington Blues Society to present the Legends of the Blues concert on Friday, Dec. 6, starting at 7 p.m. Armed with hotel/motel tax grants from the city of Arlington, the Arlington Arts Council contacted local blues harp player Jeff Nicely and expressed their interest in promoting both the

blues genre and the Byrnes Performing Arts Center as an arena to showcase performers who could draw audiences from throughout the region. Nicely sees the Byrnes Performing Arts Center as a sorely under-utilized venue that deserves the community’s investment. “We thought that an allstar lineup of blues musi-

cians could make this more of a regional event, so we set out to see how many Hall of Fame and lifetime achievement award-winning blues musicians we could recruit from around the state,” Nicely said. “As it turned out, almost all of them who are still living were able and willing to do it, in no small part because of the mutual respect they have for each other.” The Legends of the Blues concert will feature nearly 20 Washington Blues Society Hall of Fame and lifetime achievement honorees, the most prestigious of the Best of the Blues Awards voted on each year by the Washington Blues Society membership over the past 20 years. Among the evening’s performers will be Little Bill and the Blue Notes, honored several years as the state’s Best Traditional Blues Act, with the BB Award now presented annually in their honor. Each member of the band individually is a multiple award-winner. Leading ladies of the blues will put in prominent appearances as well, among them vocalist Patti Allen and the roots music singer-songwriter and guitarist Alice

Stuart, who will be backed up by Leslie Milton and Chris Leighton on drums. Leighton won the BB Award for blues drummer so many times that the Blues Society finally named the award after him. Nick Vigarino, Jack Cook and Fat James will be featured on guitars, along with special guests Rod Cook and Mark Riley. Buck England and Mark Whitman will share keyboard duties. World-renowned recording artist Lee Oskar will be featured on harmonica along with Paul Green, who’s had the annual BB Award for blues harmonica named in his own honor. Other special guests are set to include Patty Mey and Hank Yanda on bass, and Mike Lynch on harmonica. “For those who don’t often get the opportunity to go to the clubs where these folks perform, this brings the music to the audience,” Nicely said. Tickets may be purchased for $15, in advance online at s/event/508572 or at the door that night. The Byrnes Performing Arts Center is located at 18821 Crown Ridge Blvd. in Arlington.

paper he uses to make cards and to write things on. He’s also thankful for the electricity that powers things like the TV. “If we didn’t have any electricity we would have to always use batteries and then everybody would be using up every single battery,” Ayden said. This time of year is what Leonardo Garcia Nunez said he’s thankful for. “I’m thankful it’s almost Christmas,” he said. “And it’s almost my birthday.” Not everyone likes to eat turkey, added Leonardo, 6. He prefers eating chicken, while his classmate Olivia Thompson, 6, likes to eat ham as part of her Thanksgiving dinner. This year, Olivia plans to help by setting the table. “I set the table,” she said. “There will be seven people and only four chairs. We do have extra (chairs).” Gabe Perniciaro, 7, also helps to prepare for Thanksgiving dinner with his family by setting the table. “I get the forks, spoons and napkins out,” he said. “Grandma comes over. The turkey does taste good.” Family is what he’s most thankful for, said Paul Shevchuk, 6. “I’m thankful for Jesus, and for my little brother, my mom and my dad,” he said. Johnson and Kjellesvik are planning to have a classroom feast before Thanksgiving. Their students will have the choice to dress up in paper costumes as Pilgrims, Native Americans or turkeys, Johnson said. “They’ll make little cornucopias, with pickles and carrots, and then they make a trail mix and have popcorn,” Johnson said. “It’ll be fun.”
