Local ‘Internet star’ donates to Purrfect Pals

Animal shelter to receive 100,000 cans of food thanks to ‘Oskar the Blind Cat’ BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

ARLINGTON — A local cat shelter recently received a big boost from the Internet fame of an area cat, whose owners teamed up with Friskies to provide free cat food to the shelter. “Oskar the Blind Cat” is owned by Mick Szydlowski and his wife Bethany, who moved to Seattle from Omaha, Neb., about a year ago. They acquired Oskar in July of 2011 when he was only eight and a half weeks old, and they began posting videos of him on YouTube “just for silly fun.” Oskar’s distinctive appearance, which owes to

the microphthalmia that’s left him blind since birth, earned him lots of fans on the Internet, and before the Szydlowskis knew it, their kitten had become online peers with Grumpy Cat, Colonel Meow, Nala Cat and Hamilton the Hipster Cat, all of whom were chosen by Friskies to costar in their holiday music video this year. That same online music promotion generated 100,000 cans of cat food from Friskies for Purrfect Pals of Arlington, which was chosen by Mick Szydlowski to be Oskar’s pet charity.

SMOKEY POINT — Arlington Police Officer Erik Moon has taken part in three of the annual “Night of 1,000 Stars” impaired driving emphasis patrols in Snohomish County over the course of the past seven years. When he headed out to cover the south Arlington, Smokey Point and north Marysville areas on the evening of Dec. 13, he already had a pretty good idea of what he could expect to find, although he acknowledged that this year

would offer a few new wrinkles. “The holidays can be depressing for some people, so they drink a bit too much,” Moon said. “What’s different now is that people can smoke marijuana in their homes, but then they might decide to go for a drive to the store. It’s not alcohol, but it’s still driving under the influence. We have to administer a blood draw to test for that, since you can be high on marijuana and blow all zeros on the breathalyzer, so that SEE PATROLS, PAGE 2

PATROLS FROM PAGE 1 does no good as a test. Still, it’s like the adjustments we went through when they lowered the blood alcohol limit a while back. It’s just another learning curve.” According to Moon, those who drive under the influence tend to be in their 20s and 30s, although he recalled one intoxicated driver who was 87 years old. “It caught me off guard a little bit, but I processed her the same as I would any other DUI,” Moon said.

“We can’t be choosy when it comes to protecting the public.” Moon was one of 10 police officers and sheriff ’s deputies in Snohomish County, working an average of eight hours of overtime each, who made contact with 167 drivers on Friday, Dec. 13, the first night of Washington state’s 23rd annual “Night of 1,000 Stars,” which ran through Sunday, Dec. 15. “Five suspected impaired drivers were arrested,” Snohomish County DUI and Target Zero Task Force Manager Tracy McMillan

said. “Most were booked into the Snohomish County Jail. Two of the suspected drivers reported drinking at a north Marysville alcohol establishment, which Washington State Liquor Control Board officers are investigating, while 24 other drivers were cited for no insurance, and four individuals were arrested for outstanding warrants. Washington State Liquor Enforcement officers visited 14 alcohol establishments that Friday night, and 20 alcohol establishments and retailers that Saturday night.

Unfortunately, two stores sold alcohol to minors and were cited.” Indeed, in his first hour on patrol that Friday night, Moon hadn’t caught any intoxicated drivers, but he had pulled over two drivers whose headlights were out within minutes of each other. “Intoxicated drivers like to drive without their lights on,” Moon said. “I look at a lot of things for possible indicators of a DUI. Some intoxicated drivers will sit at green lights because they’re nearly passed out, while others will make

alcohol or drugs.” “Impaired driving as the result of drugs or alcohol is the number one cause of vehicle collision deaths in our county,” Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary said. “We want to everyone to make it home safely this holiday season.” An average of 49 people lose their lives in traffic collisions between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day in Washington state, but in November of this year, not a single person lost their life in a motor vehicle collision in Snohomish County. “That’s a tremendous accomplishment, but we need to remain vigilant,” Snohomish County Executive John Lovick said. “We want drivers to be safe throughout the holidays.” These special overtime DUI and Target Zero emphasis patrols are paid for by a special grant from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission to reduce traffic deaths and disabling injuries to zero by the year 2030. The “Night of 1,000 Stars” is a cooperative effort with law enforcement, liquor enforcement and traffic safety task forces throughout Washington state.

Marysville woman needs kidney transplant BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

MARYSVILLE — Brynn Peckham has been living at least half her life with scar tissue on her kidney, and more than anything, she’s just hoping that she can finally lead a normal life. Brynn was born to Kirstin Peckham three months premature, weighing one pound, eight ounces. At the age of 12, Brynn was diagnosed with focal segmental glomerculoscierosis, which causes scar tissue to form on parts of the kidney, which in turn causes nephrotic syndrome in children and kidney failure in adults. Now 24 years old, the Marysville native has made her scarred kidney last longer than any of her doctors had expected that it could, but she can no longer mitigate the need for a kidney transplant. “That kidney lasted her eight years longer than they said it should,” Kirstin Peckham said. “Brynn’s kept it going by taking very good care of herself. She’s so good about her diet, and she walks one to two miles every day.” These feats are especially impressive when one takes into account how tired Brynn often feels, and how restrictive her

dietary requirements are. “She has to be that health-conscious, because while a cold or the flu is bad news for the rest of us, it’s potentially life-threatening for her,” Kirstin Peckham said. “Even just dehydration can send her to the hospital by making her blood toxic.” With such a weakened autoimmune system to begin with, it certainly didn’t help when she contracted both E. coli and swine flu, but Brynn has nonetheless maintained a positive outlook throughout her ordeals. “In spite of dealing with difficulties that no one should have to cope with, she has the best attitude,” Kirstin Peckham said. “If I had to put up with that level of hassle on a daily basis, I’d be a big whiny baby about it,” she laughed, “but Brynn is always smiling and seeing the best in everything. It’s amazing.” “If I didn’t have all the support from my friends and family that I do, I wouldn’t be able to do this,” Brynn Peckham said. While Brynn has proven that a sunny disposition and a rigorously health-minded lifestyle can get you through a lot, she reached the limits of what it can do on Dec. 16, when she had to

“In spite of dealing with difficulties that no one should have to cope with, she has the best attitude. If I had to put up with that level of hassle on a daily basis, I’d be a big whiny baby about it, but Brynn is always smiling and seeing the best in everything. It’s amazing.” Kristin Peckham Brynn Peckham’s mother go in for surgery at the Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle to have a catheter implanted in her stomach, so that she could start peritoneal dialysis as soon as possible. Brynn’s aunt, Keola Scanlan, started a Facebook page for Brynn, at www.facebook.com/a. kidney.for.brynn, in hopes of finding her niece a kidney donor for her holiday present. Brynn needs a kidney from someone with Type O-Positive blood who’s a non-smoker and does not have a history of diabetes or high blood pressure. The National Kidney Foundation will pay the expenses, including travel, for a possible donor. All of Brynn’s relatives been tested, but are unable to donate. “We’ve had four potential

matches, two of whom were even scheduled for surgery, before we were told that at the last minute that it couldn’t happen,” Kirstin Peckham said. “It’s been very frustrating, but Brynn was born beating the odds, so I know she’ll make it through this.” Brynn promised that she would “bake cookies for life” for whoever donates a kidney to her. “We know there is someone who’s willing to give my daughter a kidney to save her life,” Kirstin Peckham said. “We just need to get the word out, so that we can find that special person. We’ve already had five people call in, asking to be tested, who don’t even know our family, and about 600 folks have looked at the Facebook page for Brynn.” For more information, log onto

A lot of good fiction being written

ttendance at early showings of the second Hunger Games movie, Catching Fire, suggests that it will be a blockbuster. People at Marysville’s Regal Cinema correctly anticipated that it was likely to play to a full house on the first night of its run and the enthusiasm continues. Its content seems to have touched a nerve. There’s a lot of good fiction like Hunger Games being written. Probably more than ever before. Fast keyboards or use of Dragon software that changes speech into written text make writing flow at a pace never before achieved. It seems that speed of writing helps create intensity, something that infused both Hunger Games and Catching Fire. Critics are united in rating Collins’ second book, Catching Fire, as better than her first and the third, Mockingjay, as even better. Aside from good writing, is there another reason that the reading public has gone nuts over Collins’ books? The explanation can be found by understanding plot themes as metaphor. Super-rich people of the capitol are distanced from common citizens by wealth. A ruling elite sends young people into the games to kill and be killed. Society is structured to keep all but a favored few in serfdom. Does any of that ring a bell? The movie, Catching Fire, has critics applauding its dramatic appeal and technical polish. Of

OPINION

BOB GRAEF

course audiences have to be willing to accept the impossible becoming possible, as when the heroine, Katniss, lofts a whole spool of highamperage electrical cable into the sky with nothing more than a bow and arrow. Critics have complained that Collins writes of a life that is nasty, brutish and short. The roughness of content led one critic to say that whoever slapped her series with a Young Adult rating should be fired. But if that critic had checked, she would have found that Young Adult is a literary category, not a movie rating and that it serves only to describe the target audience for certain writers’ projects. But they have a point. Catching Fire is too disturbingly dark and menacing for the faint of heart — but with reason. Collins is big on hyperbole. The government’s mouthpieces and agents are portrayed as snarky take-offs on the likes of Lady Gaga and Willy Wonka on drugs. In fact, the entire population of the capitol is presented as grotesque caricatures. No subtlety here. The contrast between entrenched wealth and poverty

is exaggerated almost as much as when brute power is set against powerlessness. Readers who don’t accept certain plot elements as trends of our times can’t help but resonate a little bit to the similarities. It’s what writers call The Hook, the provocative content that gets under our skins. It’s what separates good fiction from cheap made-up stuff. Collins must have read David Hare’s first rule for writing fiction which is, “Write only when you have something to say.” What Collins points out is that society is becoming “dystopian,” in other words, a society in which imperfect relationships go from bad to worse. The opposite of Utopian. Any Sno-Isle librarian can dish up long lists of Dystopian literature from ages when sections or levels of societies undercut the rights or welfare of others. When lumped together, dystopian literature serves as prophetic warnings that things had better change or they’ll get worse. Upsurges in dystopian fiction should be taken as alarms going off. Though our day-to-day affairs might seem to be dancing along quite nicely, our society might be harboring terminal diseases that haven’t yet been taken seriously. Take your pick. The world’s full of them; deforestation, overfishing, air pollution, overflowing prisons, a dysfunctional congress, Wall Street greed, drugs. Author Gary Shteyngart writes

dystopian novels about these things. In Super Sad True Love Story he exposed how Media and Retail could come to dominate society even more than they have. Like an Old Testament prophet he gushed on, imagining that the United States was involved in a war in Venezuela, a national debt so high that China was threatening to pull the plug, National Guard checkpoints on thoroughfares, riots in public parks and young peoples’ disregard for books as paperysmelling anachronisms that can’t be text-scanned for data. And privacy was a thing of the past. Because good dystopian fiction offers necessary and timeless messages, it often gets elevated to stand among classics, works that appeal to grandparents and grandchildren alike. Familiar dystopian writers who have figured heavily in highschool literature are George Orwell, Franz Kafka Jules Verne, H. G. Wells, Sinclair Lewis, Ayn Rand, C. S. Lewis, Robert Heinlein, Roald Dahl, Kurt Vonnegut and Ursula LeGuin. It would take this entire newspaper to complete the list. After reading or watching Hunger Games, Catching Fire or Mockingjay, think beyond their entertainment value to ask what the author was saying. If you find a message embedded there, it will likely stand the test of time. Comments may be addressed to robertgraef@comcast.net.

Council holds final meeting of 2013 kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

ARLINGTON — As the Arlington City Council conducted its final meeting of the year on Dec. 16, its two public hearings proceeded largely without any actual public comment. By law, the city of Arlington was required to conduct a public hearing within 60 days of its Oct. 21 approval of a six-month moratorium on recreational marijuana producers, processors and retailers, which was intended to give city staff time to work with the Planning Commission and the City Council on development regulations, to address compatible locations. City Council member Chris Raezer inquired whether the Council’s continuance of the moratorium after the public hearing would reset its clock, but Paul Ellis, director of economic and community development for the city of Arlington, confirmed that the six-month window of the moratorium would remain retroactive from Oct. 21. While no Arlington citizens in the audience stepped up to offer any public comment, Arlington City Council member Dick Butner continued his outspoken streak against allow-

ing such marijuana establishments within the city limits. “It’s a gateway drug,” Butner said. “The use of harder drugs starts with pot. It’s stupid to have it in our town, and I’m obviously going to vote against it.” The Council voted unanimously to continue the moratorium, and to approve the ordinance adopting the 2013 budget amendments presented by city of Arlington Finance Director Jim Chase that same evening. “When we started our budget process during the summer, we didn’t know what was going to happen during the rest of the year,” Chase said. “The 2013 budget needs to be increased to allow for additional revenues received in the form of state and federal grants for capital projects and, as a consequence, additional spending authority. These additional revenues weren’t known prior to the adoption of the original budget.” On the flip side, Chase reported that the city had incurred some additional expenditures, which would, in turn, require additional spending authority. These included the repayment of interfund loans to the Emergency Medical Services Fund to cover its insufficient fund balances prior to property taxes being received.

Paul Ellis, director of economic and community development for the city of Arlington, answers a question from Arlington City Council member Chris Raezer on Dec. 16. “Those loans were repaid, with interest, to the lending fund,” said Chase, who reminded the Council that they approve each of these loans with a resolution, complete with specific directions on repayment. Among the other amendments noted by Chase were unexpected repairs to Smokey Point Boulevard and a number of other streets, as well as to the fountain at Centennial Park. The city also replaced some small, worn-out power tools from the Public Works Maintenance and Operations Fund, as well as some aging vehicles and maintenance equipment from the Equipment Replacement Fund. Grant funds from the Stillaguamish Tribe

of Indians allowed the Arlington Fire Department to purchase the Lexipol Policy Manual, and the Arlington Police Department to pay for two new patrol vehicles. Another police car was repaired using funds from the Equipment Rental Maintenance and Operations Fund, and insurance reimbursed the city for the repair costs. “Just to be clear, most of these items were discussed with the Council as they occurred throughout the year,” Chase said. “These are not new items that should come as a surprise.” These changes add $3,192,589 to the already adopted expenses of $6,263,646, putting the total amended budget at $9,456,235.

MSD launches ‘YourVoice’ page to bolster dialogue MARYSVILLE — The Marysville School District has launched its “YourVoice” page on the district website, which aims to allow stakeholders to engage directly with district leadership in a meaningful, substantive way. Community members will also be able to register their email addresses in order to receive personal invitations to important conversations. “At the Marysville School District, it’s very important to us that we engage our entire community in thoughtful conversations, to ensure that we’re always providing the best opportunities for our students,” MSD Superintendent Dr. Becky Berg said. “Throughout the school year, we will reach out to parents, staff, students and community members to ask for feedback, so that all voices are represented, as we make decisions that impact our school district.” While Berg has acknowledged the challenges the district faces, she believes a spirit of inclusion, empowerment and engagement is crucial and necessary for the district, to be ready to listen and respond to stakeholders.

Tips from videos lead to suspect IDs, arrests identifying one suspect as a 27-year-old Monroe man. Detectives were also able to identify the second suspect as his 22-year-old brother. Both cases have been referred to the Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, with a charging recommendation of first-degree burglary. The most recent video, posted on Dec. 9 — “Suspects Wanted in Cabbie Assault” at http://youtu.be/ ofBOx5siib0 — showed two suspects attempting to force a victim, whom they had beaten and robbed, to withdraw cash from an ATM in a convenience store. Tips from the public helped Sheriff ’s Deputies locate the 27-year-old black male suspect, who was booked into jail for first-degree robbery, and has provided additional information about the robbery to detectives. Detectives in this case

are still looking to identify the while male suspect in the video. He is known to frequent the area near 164th Street, near I-5 in Lynnwood, and he may live or have acquaintances in that area. It’s believed that he frequently travels by transit bus, and may go by the name of “Jack.” “Using social media like YouTube to aid in fighting crime is proving to be a powerful tool for our agency,” Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary said. “It’s also helped us establish a new way to communicate with the public, who can be our eyes and ears in the community. Working together, we can continue to make Snohomish County a safer place.” Anyone with information about any of these cases is asked to call the Sheriff ’s Office Anonymous Tip Line at 425-388-3845.

Tips came in from the public after three YouTube videos were posted by the Snohomish County Sheriff ’s Office, and led to the identification of four criminal suspects and two arrests. On Nov. 5, the Sheriff ’s Office was looking for help in identifying a man and a woman from surveillance footage compiled in a video — “Suspects on a Shopping Spree” at http:// youtu.be/32sW9vvAQTw. The two were suspected of using stolen credit cards and a checkbook to go on a $1,500 shopping spree at the Seattle Premium Outlets. Information from the public led to the identification of both suspects, and the arrest of a 32-yearold Granite Falls man, as well as the recovery of some stolen items. Detectives in this case are now looking for 26-yearold Melissa Linder, who is believed to be the female in the video. Linder may be living in Lake Stevens, and is wanted for identity theft, forgery and possession of stolen property. In a second video, released by the Sheriff ’s Office on Nov. 6 — “Burglars Rob Snohomish Home” at http://youtu.be/ X9XoM7jNzfA — two men are seen to be burglarizing a home and making off with several items, including high-powered rifles and ammunition. Within 24 hours of the release of the video, more than 25 tips came in from the public,

City names Robinson Employee of the Month MARYSVILLE — Mayor Jon Nehring is pleased to announce Parks Maintenance Manager Mike Robinson as the city of Marysville’s Employee of the Month for October. For nearly 25 years, Robinson has established himself as a leader in making Marysville’s parks safer, well-maintained and more attractive for community members, both through the dedicated parks crews he manages and the volunteer groups he oversees. Among his many hats, Robinson serves as a volunteer coordinator for the city and has been instrumental in guiding a growing number of volunteer projects. In 2012-13, more than 34 events required many hours of volunteer time to organize outside of normal work schedules. “Marysville’s parks are safer and more attractive places to recreate thanks to Mike, and to the growing number of volunteer groups who know that their proj-

ects will be equipped, wellorchestrated and, most of all, appreciated by the community,” Nehring said at a recent City Council meeting award presentation. “He genuinely lives to serve his community through coordinating volunteer events.” Through Robinson’s coordination and supervision, the city has doubled its volunteer hours, with a total of more than 3,230 hours, which equates to a value of more than $73,000. Nehring also lauded Robinson for his gift for creating partnerships with local faith-based groups, local businesses and nonprofit organizations, which have contributed labor toward ongoing maintenance and new construction of city facilities. Among Robinson’s noteworthy projects are the annual “Clean Sweep Week” neighborhood cleanups, the Doleshel Park development which will soon open next to Kellogg Marsh Elementary, United Way Day of Caring volunteer projects, dozens of

Eagle Scout projects over the years, and tree- and bulbplanting projects. Robinson dedicates much of his own time on evenings and weekends to coordinate these projects, and he isn’t above stepping in and joining work parties in their tasks, according to Nehring. Robinson also plays a key role in year-round Parks and Recreation activities and special events, and his newest project will take him back to the municipal golf course, where his career with Marysville started 25 years ago. He will oversee a STEM project for Cedarcrest Golf Course that will give high school student volunteers an opportunity to address drainage issues at the course. As a special on-the-side project for the holidays, Robinson and his wife of 33 years, Vicki, plan to refurbish the city’s large holiday light-up train for public display. This is the second time that Robinson has been named Employee of the Month.

Nativity Festival draws thousands to Arlington home as carry-on luggage to protect it,” Thompson said. “We had hand-carved nativities from many countries in Africa, and clay nativities from Mexico, Guatemala and Ecuador. Local artist Ted Rumsey made a magnificent hand-carved nativity from cypress knees, which was displayed on a beautiful burl wood stand.” Thompson expressed her appreciation for the volunteer support the event received this year, which included a group of honor students from Arlington High School who returned several days in a row to place the nativity sets. “The countless hours of volunteering, from all those who helped set up and take down this event, was staggering,” said Thompson, who likewise touted the event’s photo studio and children’s room, the latter of which was designed to resemble a street in Bethlehem, and both of which proved popular with families. “Many of our guests planned on using

the pictures of their families, dressed in nativity costumes, as their Christmas greeting cards.” Brad Larreau has been bringing his family to the Nativity Festival since it started. While he acknowledged that taking four small children to see an entire room full of nativity sets that they’re not allowed to touch is “a little risky,” he deemed the lessons of the experience to be more than worth it. “This is what Christmas is all about,” said Larreau, whose favorite part of the event was the “Life of Christ” room, which used artwork to chronicle the Biblical life of Jesus, from his birth in Bethlehem to his death on the cross and eventual resurrection. “It’s a great opportunity for the kids to see and feel the true meaning and roots of the holiday. I can’t walk around here without thinking about our savior, and what he did for us.” “If there had been no resurrection, there would be no celebration,” said Maggie

CHILD CARE & SCHOOL DIRECTORY

Olson, a volunteer who staffed the “Life of Christ” room. “There’s only so much room to display all the artwork here, so we choose different pieces each year, depicting different stages of Christ’s journey, because people relate to it in different ways. I can feel the spirit of God in this room,” she added, becoming visibly emotional even as she sought to compose herself.

Olson reported that 50 individual donors contributed one or more pieces of artwork, while an additional 30 supporters provided greenery, lighting, backdrops and overall arrangements. “The music for this year’s event was spectacular, and the variety of ways that this event brought the presence of Christ into the lives of those who attended was notable,” Thompson said.

ARLINGTON — The fourth year of the Nativity Festival at the Arlington Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints showcased more than 500 nativity sets, plus more than 100 works of art in the “Life of Christ” room, between Dec. 12-15. According to Cyndy Thompson, director of public affairs for the Arlington Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the number of nativity sets was roughly the same as last year’s event, but the event saw a significant increase in the amount of original artwork supplied to the “Life of Christ” room by both church members and their friends. “This year also showed a substantial increase in guests,” Thompson said. “The music concerts required about 200 extra seats each evening, bringing the total to more than 500 audience members each on the evenings of Saturday and

Sunday.” While the Stanwood High School Jazz Ensemble made its debut at the Nativity Festival on Thursday, Dec. 12, the Children’s Choir performed at the church on Friday, Dec. 13, and Saturday, Dec. 14. Choir concerts followed on the evenings of Dec. 14 and Sunday, Dec. 15. “The Stanwood High School Jazz Ensemble’s performance brought in our largest attendance ever on a Thursday night,” Thompson said. “I’d estimate that more than 3,000 community members came to view the nativities and enjoy the concerts.” Many of the nativity sets were created and acquired in other countries, including a nativity made out of bullet shell casings from Liberia, Africa, as well as a corn husk nativity that was bought from a small vendor at a street stall in Slovakia, in Central Europe. “There was also a Russian nativity, which was bought in Eastern Europe and brought

Marysville family receives keys to new Habitat for Humanity home MARYSVILLE — Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County celebrated its 19th home donation at a dedication ceremony on Dec. 7 in Marysville. The new homeowners, Vera and Nikolay Khrapko,

thanked all those who worked so hard to help them reach this goal. More than 40 volunteers, led by Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County’s Volunteer Site Supervisor John Herrera and Vice

President of Construction Marla Patterson, worked side by side with the family for more than 2,000 hours to refurbish the home. The event began with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting and the Khrapkos inviting supporters inside for a tour of their new home. Herrera joined Bank of America Senior Vice President of Community Relations Michael Dotson in congratulating the family and thanking the volunteers for the completion of the home. Pastor Craig Laughlin, from the Marysville Church of the Nazarene, blessed the home, after which the house’s keys and a Bible were presented to the family by Guinn Rogers, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County, who was accompanied by Habitat County Board members John Collier, Janet Norem, Bruce Richards and John Budd. Through donations of money, materials and volunteer labor, Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County was able to refurbish the home and provide it to the Khrapko family at an affordable price. The Khrapkos purchased the home with their contribution of 500 hours of “sweat equity” and a noprofit loan, and their monthly mortgage payments will be used to build more Habitat for Humanity houses. To support more home builds in Snohomish County, please call 425-2586289 or send an email to mchua@habitatsnohomish. org. You may visit the Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County website at www.habitatsnohomish.org for more information about applying for a Habitat County home, or how to volunteer or make a donation. Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County works to eliminate substandard housing, and break the cycle of poverty, through a unique and well-tested process of partnering with families in need to build, acquire and refurbish homes. Through mentorship, training and volunteer “sweat equity,” its partner families are empowered to purchase these homes through the provision of no interest mortgages.

Arlington Eagles overpower Lake Stevens BY BRANDON ADAM badam@marysvilleglobe.com

Brandon Adam/Staff Photo

Arlington post Noah Jones works his way inside the paint.

Arlington — The Arlington High School boys basketball team defeated the Lake Stevens Vikings, 80-48, on Dec. 23. Arlington executed textbook defense, as well as sharp shooting behind the three-point line, and converted on free throws. “Our kids played with a lot of heart and intensity,” Arlington Head Coach Nick Brown said. “They weren’t going to be denied.” Arlington’s senior guard Gavin Smoke was smoking that night, hitting almost every three-point attempt, scoring,21 points. “It was a good team effort,” Smoke said. “I felt like everyone came out ready to play.” Another key perimeter shooter and defensive player was senior point guard Kaleb Bryson, who lead in steals and racked up 12 points. Sophomore pointguard Donavan Sellgren was tied with three-pointers with Bryson, completing two, but was also the second highest scoring player, hitting for 15 points. “We got contributions from everyone,” Brown said. “It was a good collective effort.”

The game started fast in the first period. The Vikings drew first blood with a layup, but the Eagles responded with shots of their own, and thwarting the Lake Stevens’ offense. Senior post Noah Jones imposed his size to work his way inside the key to catch passes and work in layups. “We just shot really well,” Jones said. Outside the three-point line, Smoke scored a three which quickly increased the Eagles’ lead. On defense, the Eagles stopped the Vikings mid-court, swatting passes and scoring on steals. “Our defense was really good as well,” Jones said. “We just doubled and got a lot of steals.” The Eagles led at the end of the first period 22-6. In the second quarter, the Vikings showed they were still in the game, closing the Eagles’ lead by scoring more points then they had in the first quarter. The Vikings tied in scoring with Arlington in the second quarter. The Eagles still controlled the game, despite the Vikings’ efforts, with the game at 37-21 at halftime. By the third quarter, The Eagles again demonstrated accurate shooting and an imposing defense. Bryson

pressured the Vikings’ offense, including a steal which he converted for a field goal. The Eagles passes creating holes in their opponents’ defense, which made for even more scoring. The Eagles led at the end of the third quarter, 62-34. As the fourth quarter began, the all the Eagles had to do was execute with the consistency they had established throughout the game. The Eagles ended the score to 80-48. Brown was pleased with the team’s all-around execution, which won the game. “I’ve got nothing that I’m really frustrated with,” Brown said. “I thought it was a good effort all around.” This was their third win in a row since their loss against Stanwood on Dec. 10, The Eagles’ priority in the remainder of the season is to keep executing and winning games. Smoke hoped the team’s consistency will take them far in the conference. “We’re going to try and take one game at a time,” Smoke said. “We’ll see where it takes us.” As of Dec. 26, The Eagles current overall record is 6-1, with a league record of 2-0. I think we’ll do well if we keep playing what we did well tonight,” Jones said.

Aviators remain undefeated at home BY BRANDON ADAM badam@marysvilleglobe.com

Arlington — The Arlington Aviators indoor soccer team remained undefeated at home, improving their record 3-1 in a 11-4 victory over the Burnaby Titans on Dec. 21. The Aviators achieved a record of having the most points scored goal in one game. The Aviators put on display of ball handling, scoring and defense within the indoor stadium as they racked up points against the Titans. “We showed high pressure in the beginning,” midfielder Andrew Escalante said. Arlington goalkeeper Jeff Renslo made crucial blocks in response to the Titan’s’ frequent visits to their side of the field, as well as an assist late in the game, but the Aviators defense gave up four goals in the game, two of which occurred in the final period. Scoring started slow in the first period, until a goal made by midfielder Hector Rodriguez, assisted by

defender Drew Ferris, gave the Aviators a 1-0 lead at 9:53 of the period. Less then two minutes later, the Aviators followed up with another goal, at 7:25, by forward James Postma, assisted again by Rodriguez. At first what looked like an easy win for the Aviators, the Titans showed their determination at the top of the second period when they answered back with a goal at 14:12, stepping up the intensity of the match. The Aviators responded quickly with precision as Escalante scored an unassisted goal at 13:43 of the second period. Before the second period ended, the Aviators got one more goal by midfielder James Doherty, with forward Dana Garner providing the assist. The Aviators led 4-1 by halftime. In third period, the Aviators scored three goals, starting with another unassisted goal by defender Solomon Gold at 12:18. Rodriguez made his second goal of the night with an assist by forward Efrain

Alvarado at 8:04. The Aviators gave up a goal at 6:20. The Aviators led 7-2 at the end of the third quarter. “Unfortunately we kind of slacked off in the third,” Escalante said. The Aviators had a sloppy final quarter. The fourth quarter was their highest scoring quarter, but they also gave up two Titan goals in the process. The Titans attempted a comeback, scoring two consecutive goals — one made at 12:46 and another at 11:20, bringing the score to 7-4. The Aviators terminated any chance of a Titans comeback when they scored their final four unanswered goals. “We got those fresher legs in toward the end of the game,” Escalante said. “It helped pick up the pace.” Postma scored his second goal of night, with an assist by Alvarado at 9:36. Less then a minute later it was Garner with a goal, with an assist by Renslo. Midfielder Austin Kohn made a goal at 1:43, with Alvarado getting his third assist of the night.

Garners finished the final period with an unassisted goal at 1:08, which ensured another home field victory for Arlington. Aviators Head Coach Phil Bartlow was critical of the team’s finish on a new team. “It’s tough to look at the scoreboard,” Bartlow said. “I don’t think we played all that well.” Bartlow believed the defense could have been better executed throughout the game. “I didn’t want to run up the score on them, but I wanted to play better defense,” Bartlow said. Offensively, Bartlow was pleased with the team’s record of scoring the most goals they had in the two years they’ve been playing. Bartlow anticipated the next challenge for the Aviators is to win an away game. Though undefeated at home, the team’s only blemish on their record was a loss on the road. The Aviators have four consecutive away games before they play at home again. “If we play like we have been, we will get there,”

Bartlow said. The Aviators next game will be Jan. 4 against the Bellingham Rapids at 7

p.m.. The Aviators next home game will be Feb. 1 at Soccer First Indoor Sports Facility.

OSKAR FROM PAGE 1 researching local shelters,” Szydlowski said. “Ideally, we wanted it to be a nokill sanctuary, and we knew that 100,000 cans of cat food could be too few for the numbers of cats that some of these establishments serve, so Purrfect Pals just seemed like the right fit.” Connie Gabelein, executive director of Purrfect Pals in Arlington, expected that the first installment of cat food from Friskies would be delivered near the end of this month, and estimated that the shelter could sustain its cat food needs for the rest of next year with 100,000 cans, although she noted that the Friskies supply wouldn’t last that long if Purrfect Pals chose to share it with the customers of their pet food bank. “We have a food bank for low-income cat owners, along with free spaying and neutering services, and an ‘Angel Fund’ that can serve as a onetime fix for struggling families who need to pay off something expensive, like a vet bill,” Gabelein said. “We’re also looking to expand our facilities and improve our property for our 25th anniversary. We handle about 2,000 cat adoptions a year, half of which are kittens, and 90 percent of all those

adoptions are conducted off site, at places like PetSmart and Petco. That leaves us with about 250 cats in our sanctuary at any given time, many of whom suffer from illnesses such as feline immunodeficiency virus or leukemia, or else are old or feral.” Purrfect Pals has its own veterinary clinic on site to deal with such issues, staffed by one fulltime veterinarian and four full-time veterinary assistants. Although Mick and Bethany Szydlowski hadn’t had a chance to visit Purrfect Pals before selecting it as the recipient of the cat food that Oskar earned from Friskies, they finally stopped by earlier this month, and were impressed by its setup. “It looks like we chose the right organization,” Mick Szydlowski said, as he fetched Oskar out of his cat-carrier, to explore the cat towers and other furniture of the sanctuary’s social area for its own cats. “As busy as you are, you’re obviously fulfilling your mission,” Szydlowski told Gabelein and Kathy Centala, the founder and director of Purrfect Pals. “Snohomish County is a completely different landscape now, “ Centala said. “Nobody was doing spaying or neutering services back then. Now, you can’t even adopt a cat that’s unal-

tered.” For their part, the Szydlowskis are also doing what they can to support less fortunate cats, although — unlike Purrfect Pals, which is a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization — Mick and Bethany’s operation is forprofit, albeit one which donates healthy portions of its proceeds to cat-centric charities and other causes that the couple agrees are appropriate. “All the products we feature on our blog are made in the U.S., non-toxic and, when possible, organic,” Mick Szydlowski said. “We don’t promote a product unless it’s been tested by our cats, to make sure it’s high-quality, durable and fun for them to play with. We don’t push throwaway stuff.” The blog that the Szydlowskis set up for Oskar can be found at www.blindoskar.com, and Oskar’s Facebook page is www.facebook.com/ BlindOskar. You can watch the clip that earned Oskar the Best Cat Video of the Year Award from Friskies, for 2012, at http://youtu.be/ U0vIdvJIjGk. Purrfect Pals’ sanctuary is located at 230 McRae Rd. NE in Arlington, and its website is www.purrfectpals.org. You can also “Like” them on Facebook at www. facebook.com/PurrfectPals.

“U Mad Bro?” Richard Sherman

Sherman’S notable QuoteS Richard Sherman known for being great cornerback, big talker BY JOHN BOYLE Herald Writer

Depending on your perspective, Richard Sherman is either best known as one of the NFL’s top cornerbacks, or as one of the NFL’s biggest talkers. In reality, he is both. Sherman’s standout play is why he’s in the spotlight in the first place, but his brashness/ confidence/cockiness/ whatever you want to call it is also a big part of who he is. On the field, Sherman uses his trash talk to get into an opponent’s head — we’re looking at you, Steve Smith — and off the field he

uses it to build his brand. Here we offer a small sampling of Sherman’s greatest hits, so to speak:

“U Mad Bro?” —

Oct. 14, 2012. Sherman,

via Twitter, with his nowsignature line pasted over a picture of New England quarterback Tom Brady following a Seahawks win over the Patriots.

“I don’t want to be an island. I want to be more of a tourist attraction. You stop here, I take your money and you go.” —

responding to 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh’s complaints about the physical play of Seattle’s defensive backs.

“In my 24 years of life, I’m better at life than you.” — March 7, 2013. The

money shot from a sometimes hilarious, sometimes awkward takedown of ESPN’s resident instigator, Skip Bayless, during an appearance on “First Take.”

“It helps when you don’t listen to the idiots in the draft room. When you don’t listen to the idiots, you find players like Jeremy Lane and Byron Maxwell and myself and Kam Chancellor, the list goes on, Russell Wilson. But if you sit there and listen to the idiots like Mel Kiper and Todd McShay and things like that, you miss a lot of good players.” —

Nov. 14. 2013. Sherman when asked if he takes it as a sign of respect that teams are throwing away from him, which is how cornerback Darrelle Revis earned the nickname “Revis Island.”

“I’ve been proud of you since you spurned us. I told you, I didn’t want you to go down that path, I’m proud of you, boy.” —

Jan. 6, 2013. Sherman, who was mic’d up, to Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III following a playoff win, a reference to the fact that Sherman encouraged Griffin not to come to Stanford, in part because Andrew Luck was also heading there, but also, perhaps, because he didn’t want Griffin to be subjected to playing for Jim Harbaugh.

“A.J. Green is just a lot of noise talking and bad routes.” —

Oct. 30, 2011. Sherman to Sports Radio KJR’s Curtis Crabtree following his first NFL start, a game in which he suffered a concussion early and kept playing, according to an article

he wrote this season for TheMMQB.com.

“I’m still a fifthround pick last I checked. That will never go away.” —

Dec. 27, 2012. Sherman describing why he’ll always play with a chip on his shoulder, even

“I wanted to make a statement to my city. I’m from Compton (Calif.), and it’s hard for people to understand that you can be an athlete and have high academic standards and achieve high academic things. So, I really wanted to make that known to people that you can go to Stanford from Compton.” —

April 30, 2011. Sherman on the day he was drafted, explaining why he went to Stanford despite also having an offer from USC.

“He’s an incredibly perspicacious guy.” —

Oct. 3, 2013. Sherman, describing former Stanford teammate and current Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, who a day earlier had described Sherman as vociferous. In the game of vocabulary oneupmanship, Sherman’s description of Luck means, “having or showing an ability to notice and understand things that are difficult or not obvious.”

Richard Edward Cadorette “Dick” “Mr. C.” R ich a r d E dwa r d Cadorette “Dick” “Mr. C” Born August 28th, 1924 in Detroit, Michigan. Died December 11th, 2013 in Port Townsend, WA. Our most precious husband, father, grandpa, great grandpa, great great grandpa, papa, uncle, and friend Richard “Dick” Cadorette, 89, peacefully entered the presence of our Lord on December 11th, 2013. Our hearts are grieved but we are filled with joy, comfort and hope as we consider the promises of The Lord Jesus Christ. His family is so grateful for his constant, steady, strong yet gentle presence gracing our lives for so many years. Anyone who knew Dad enjoyed his sense of humor, wit, wisdom & spiritual maturity. Dad was born in Detroit, Michigan on August 28th, 1924 to Cecil & Grace Cadorette. As a child he earned money by delivering for a neighborhood Greek store owner, selling the early morning Free Press In downtown Detroit and joining the service crew on a cruise line that toured the Great Lakes. As a young man in September of 1941 Dad joined the navy to see the world. The US Navy initially assigned him to the USS Colorado in Bremerton WA. The USS Colorado was the only battleship not in Pearl Harbor on that fateful date in history, December 7, 1941. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor the USS Colorado was based there. Later in that December Dad was transferred to the USS Marilyn. He was a Yeoman Striker. Dad was chosen to serve on the Admirals Staff where he became the Admirals Talker on the bridge of the Admiral’s ship during 8 Japanese invasions Dad earned several distinguished commendations. He was honorably discharged November, 1945 & October, 1952.

August 28, 1924 — December 11, 2013

W h i l e working at J. L. Hudson in Detroit he met and married the love of his life, Virginia Lee (Cabana) Cadorette. They were married on April 27th 1946. While in Detroit they had two daughters, Kathleen Louise and Linda Lee. In 1950 Dad was called back for the Korean conflict as a US Navy Reserves Yeoman 1st Class. Dad also worked for Ford Motor Company in the pension section of the insurance department at the Rotunda at Dearborn, Michigan for 5 years. In 1952 Dick and Virginia and family packed up and drove to Long Beach California in a 1946 Buick Road master pulling a 35’ Spartan Aluminum Trailer. The trip was made with Dad’s in-laws Eugene & Mary Cabana. There were many who stood with their jaws dropped as they drove by with these new “fandangled” trailers. The family settled in North Long Beach and subsequently North Hollywood, Huntington Beach, Anaheim and the San Fernando Valley. In 1960 a son was born to Dick and Virginia, Richard (Skip) Eugene. Dad faithfully provided for his family having employment at McDonald Douglas as a riveter, Atlas Coverall & Uniform Supply where he rose to be Manager of Route Operations in the San Fernando Valley, CA, Fort Worden in Port Townsend as a counselor, Olympic Hardware, Owner of Dick’s cleaning business and at Port Townsend School District as a maintenance worker and bus driver. A move to Marysville, WA graced Arlington School District where Dad retired after working in maintenance and bus driving. When the graduating class at Arlington

Middle School was asked who they wanted as a speaker they chose “Mr. C”, the janitor. What an amazing moment that was when our Dad took the podium while thunderous roars of approval seemed to lift the ceiling. Dad’s speech was simple, honest and humble but delivered with the air of a professional. We were so proud and happy for him. Dick and Virginia returned to Port Townsend where Dad spent his last years devoted to our Mom. The First Baptist Church with their son Skip Cadorette as the pastor has filled their lives with wonderful fellowship and friends. Dad has played pool at the senior center and walked the beaches with his best friend and wife Virginia. It has been a good life! Dad accepted Christ as his personal savior later in life in response to the scripture… ”Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me” Revelation 3:20. His last days were a picture of grace as he battled cancer with patience, wisdom and strength….even at his weakest moments he was strong in spirit. What an example he was and is to all of us. Dad & Mom gave a great portion of their time to children through church activities and community organizations. Many in their communities called them Mr.and Mrs. “C”. They both have made a difference in many young lives and hearts. Richard is survived by his loving wife and best friend Virginia Lee (Cabana) Cadorette. Children, Kathleen Louise (Cadorette) Siegfried and son-in-law Mark, Linda Lee (Cadorette) Dennis and son-inlaw David and Richard Eugene Cadorette and daughter-in-law Rebekah, Grandchildren Steven Siegfried, Melissa (Siegfried)& Russ Peters, Robert & Bri Witheridge , Kathy (Dennis) &

Mark Larson, Brian & Kristen Dennis, Scott & Laura Dennis and Logan, Acacia, Shiloh and Ransom Cadorette. He is also survived by Great Grandchildren Justin Siegfried, Michele Mitchell, Vanessa Hannula, Aliyah Kerstetter, Ethan Witheridge, Ellie Witheridge, Kyle & Stephanie Larson, Ross Larson, Nic Adamo Dennis & Ashley, Stephen Dennis, Holly(Dennis) & Doug Blatter, Jonathon Dennis, Ashton and Ashley Dennis, Brayton Dennis, Ryan, Ashley & Jordan Misocky and Great-Great grandchildren, Miles Blatter and Luke Larson. Dad is also survived by his sisterin-law Montez Cabana, ni ece Cheryl (Cabana) Fordham and family and nephew Dan Saldivar & family A celebration of Dad’s life will be at 2 PM, Saturday, January 18th, 2013. We will gather at The First Baptist Church located at 1202 Lawrence Street, Port Townsend, WA. 98368. In lieu of flowers it was Dad’s desire that any donations be made to The First Baptist Church with designation to “Living Waters International”, an organization that drills new wells with fresh, cold, potable water for small villages around the world. If you plan on attending the service and are using the Coupeville/Port Townsend ferry on Whidbey Island we would encourage you to make reservations through the Washington State Ferry Reservation System. You may send comments, memories and messages to davidandlindadennis@hotmail. com His lord said unto him. Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. Mathew 25:21 We miss you but know you are now face to face with The Lord. This is the hope that is within us as we mourn our loss but celebrate the victory of eternal life in Christ Jesus. Your family has loved you beyond measure!

How to Sell Your Home Without an Agent and Save the Commission If you’ve tried to sell your home yourself, you know that the minute you put the “For Sale by Owner” sign up, the phone will start to ring off the hook. Unfortunately, most calls aren’t from prospective buyers, but rather from every real estate agent in town who will start to hound you for your listing. Like other “For Sale by Owners”, you’ll be subjected to a hundred sales pitches from agents who will tell you how great they are and how you can’t possibly sell your home by yourself. After all, without the proper information, selling a home isn’t easy. Perhaps you’ve had your home on the market for several months with no offers from qualified buyers. This can be a very frustrating time, and many homeowners have given up their dreams of selling their homes themselves. But don’t give up until you’ve read a new report entitled “Sell Your Own Home” which has been prepared especially for homesellers like you. You’ll find that selling your home by yourself is entirely possible once you understand the process. Inside this report, you’ll find 10 inside tips to selling your home by yourself which will help you sell for the best price in the shortest amount of time. You’ll find out what real estate agents don’t want you to know.

Weller Holiday Remembrance honors lost loved ones kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

ARLINGTON — Weller Funeral Home conducted its 13th annual Holiday Remembrance Gathering on Dec. 7, drawing an estimated 45 attendees as they honored the lives of their loved ones who have passed on, both veterans and civilians. “That’s a much higher attendance than in years past,” said Carrie Stucky, office manager of the Weller Funeral Home in Arlington. “We were glad that we were able to be there for all of those who attended. We try to make sure that people know we’re a support system for them, and that we’re here for them during difficult times. We understand that this time of year can be

difficult, and we’re happy to be able to provide a place of comfort for those dealing with grief this holiday season.” Dan Keane, the funeral director at the Weller Funeral Home, welcomed those in attendance that afternoon by likewise pledging to help them through the grieving process, before Pastor Bryce McFadden of the Smokey Point Community Church delivered a meditation that would serve as the occasion’s primary address. “While each of your stories may be different, all of you have faced sorrow from the loss of those who were near and dear to you.” McFadden said. “Grief is hard work. We call it a process because it’s a journey.” McFadden admitted

that working with grieving parishioners has changed him as much as it has them, and he expressed his gratitude to them for allowing him to “come alongside you during such difficult times,” which he deemed a humbling experience. “It’s a natural human response to want to avoid pain, but you don’t have to face it alone,” McFadden told those assembled at the Weller Funeral Home on Dec. 7. “When you walked into this building, I’m sure it brought back some memories for many of you, but that too is part of the journey, and it can also be part of the healing. If a few tears fall, that’s fine. You’re among a good group of people here. We’ve probably shared a lot of tears already.”

Vanney family shows off seasonal spirit BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

ARLINGTON — What started out as a simple tradition for the Vanney family on Olympic Avenue has become a spectacle that never fails to draw crowds during the holiday seasons, and if you swing by 425 S. Olympic Ave. in Arlington before the New Year, you just might catch it. Jerry Vanney lives in the home once occupied by his mother, Norine, and his late father, Don. Sr., who passed away in 1997 on New Year’s Day. Although Jerry is a developmentally disabled adult, who’s currently being looked after by his brother, Don Jr., and sister-in-law, Kathy, everyone in the family agrees that Jerry is an uncontested whiz-kid at filling the front yard of his house with inflatable Christmas and Halloween decorations. Don. Jr. attributes this skill to Jerry’s sessions spent putting up such decorations with Don Sr. in the late 1970s and early ‘80s. “He knows where everything is supposed to go,” Don Jr. said of Jerry’s skill at placing the inflatable Santas and snowmen and other decorations, along with their attendant power and anchor lines. “He takes pictures of everything when it’s in place, and then uses those as his guides to put everything together how it was the year before. It probably took about 33 manhours to get it all ready this year. There were five of us working on it, and Jerry told us exactly how to place everything. He’s a real taskmaster,” Don Jr. laughed. Don Jr. noted that Jerry gets just as enthusiastic about decorating the front yard of the house with seasonally themed inflatables for Halloween each year. “Every year, Jerry has added something new to the display, and replaced as many of the worn-out decorations as he can,” Don Jr. said. “I still can’t believe there are this many inflatable decorations.” As befitting a longstanding family tradition, Jerry is a strict traditionalist about when he’s willing to put up the Christmas decorations. “It’s always the day after Thanksgiving,” Don Jr. said. “He’ll say, every year, ‘We’ve got to wait until after the turkey.’” And while old St. Nick has made his visits, dropped off his presents and gone until next year, Jerry will leave his Christmas decorations out until after the start of the New Year. “After New Year’s, he waits until the first nice day to bun-

dle them all up,” Kathy said. “He’s gotten more organized, and is better at putting them away neatly,” she laughed. In the meantime, the Vanneys are happy to greet the “non-stop traffic” that Don. Jr. has reported seeing on their street. “What’s neat is that Jerry has been doing this long enough now that there are kids who grew up coming to

see it, who are now bringing their own kids to see it,” Don. Jr. said. “Every time I swing by the house, there’s somebody in front of it, either slowing down or completely stopped. One guy was showing it to his son, and he had California plates on his car.” “I love it when people look at it,” Jerry said. “I want them to stop by and enjoy my work.”

Jerry Vanney proudly shows off the inflatable Christmas decorations that he puts up in the front yard of his house every year. Kirk Boxleitner/Staff Photo
