Paul Ellis, community and economic development director for the city of Arlington, speaks to the Arlington City Council on March 10.

ARLINGTON — During its Monday, March 10, workshop meeting, the Arlington City Council reviewed the Riverfront Master Plan proposed by city staff, which city of Arlington Natural Resources Director Bill Blake requested be approved, to allow the city to move forward on a grant request to the Recreation and Conservation Office for

improvements to Haller Park and the Country Charm Park and Conservation Area. Blake explained that the city led a program in 2011 and 2012 to develop the Riverfront Master Plan, complete with a citizen subcommittee and a series of meetings to gain feedback and review community questionnaires. He presented the proposed plan as the result, and cited its report of a number of comments from the

community. To apply for the RCO grant the City Council must adopt a current master plan and a capital improvement plan since the city’s parks master plan expired in 2012. “The RCO has reviewed the Riverfront Master Plan and agreed to give us until April 18 to adopt the plan,” said Blake, who elaborated that this plan SEE COUNCIL, PAGE 2

ARLINGTON — Once a month, on the second Thursday of each month, the lower level of the Immaculate Conception Church in Arlington comes alive with song during Village Community Services’ “Evening with the Arts” dances for adults with developmental disabilities. As John Dalgarn leads the 27-member Voices of the Village band through enthusiastic musical performances, guests are welcome to take up spare instruments and contribute to the sound, or else just groove along to the beat, either with dance partners or by themselves. Cindy Somers’ 33-year-old son, Brandon King, is a Marysville resident with Williams Syndrome, which can produce musical savants. After King graduated from high school at the age of 21, he lost the musical outlet of his school band, but Somers’ chance meeting with Dalgarn through a Developmental Disabilities Administration luncheon led to King taking his place as one of the

will again be reviewed in 2015, as part of the citywide Comprehensive Plan update, which will give the community additional opportunities to improve the plan’s recommendations. “If we do adopt it, we’ve got a lot of feedback to work with, which we will revisit.” That feedback can be found, along with the rest of the Riverfront Master Plan, on the city’s website at modules/showdocument. aspx?documentid=7844. The city’s Comprehensive Plan update also figured into the city staff-proposed professional service agreement with the Shockey Planning Group. Paul Ellis, community and economic development director for the city of Arlington, noted that the contract is stipulated not to exceed $30,000. “It’s a pretty small contract, but we just lack the technical ability to do it all,” said Ellis, who summed up the Shockey

Development Group’s assistance to the city, in developing its Comprehensive Plan updates, as including public outreach and interaction with the City Council, Planning Commission and staff. In addition to assessing the city’s Comprehensive Plan, the Shockey Planning Group would schedule public hearings and meetings, as well as prepare informational materials for citizens and the media, in addition to draft and final reports outlining mandatory changes and draft amendments to the City Code, as warranted. “I’m really impressed by him,” Council member Marilyn Oertle said of Shockey Planning Group founder Reid Shockey. “He’s smart and easy to work with.” Oertle’s comments were echoed by fellow Council member Debora Nelson. Both of these proposals are slated to be voted on by the Arlington City Council during their Monday, March 17 meeting, at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers.

I never would have dreamt that we would find a place for Brandon that would allow him to use his talents to contribute to the community, because by providing them with music, he knows he’s making a contribution.” VCS caregiver Jeanette

Winter and former Board member Christie Christianson volunteer regularly at the monthly dances, whose influence they both credited with nurturing the growth of the band members and the guest dancers alike. “A lot of them wouldn’t have set foot in this room if music was playing at first,” Winter said. “But now, they practically live for it. They’re always asking, ‘Is it music night yet?’” “They have a great time, especially during our June gala prom dance,” said Christianson, who noted that each month’s dance has a seasonal theme, as attendees of the March 13 dance sported green attire for St. Patrick’s Day. “It’s nice to see them dress up and greet each other. Really, these folks are just like anyone else, but with a little bit more that they have to deal with. This is a place where they can come and not feel invisible.” “They just want the same things out of life that we

all do,” Winter said. “They want to go places and do things, and not be shunned by those around them in the process. They also enjoy holding down jobs,” she added, alluding to VCS’s vocational programs for adults with developmental disabilities. “A lot of these folks have volunteer jobs, and that makes them feel important.” Vicki Adams, who has had two adopted adult sons with developmental disabilities, also acts as a booking manager for Voices of the Village, and she noted that the “Evening with the Arts” dances and Friday music jam sessions require considerable resources to put together. “The Immaculate Conception Church graciously hosts us for $50 a month, while the Arlington United Methodist Church lets us pay them $20 each week to host our Friday music jam sessions,” Adams said. “The Village Music and Arts programs cost about $30,000 a year, since

it costs us $75 an hour for each gig, and a lot of venues aren’t able to actually pay us.” While Adams’ 40-yearold son Jim is still among the 60-80 attendees of each monthly dance, her other son Sean passed away at the age of 36, and she praised VCS for making both of them feel at home. “Voices of the Village is a huge deal for all these people because John makes them feel like shining stars,” said Adams, who was touched when the band performed at Sean’s funeral. “It really does take a village to make this happen.” The “Evening with the Arts” dances include arts and crafts activities, and caregivers do not need to pay the $5 admission fee. This event takes place on the second Thursday of each month, from 5:30-7:30 p.m., at the Immaculate Conception Church, located at 1200 E. Fifth St. in Arlington. Youths and adults of all abilities are invited to the Friday music jam sessions, from 1-3 p.m. at 338 N. MacLeod Ave. in Arlington. Guests can bring their own musical instruments, or use the ones shared by the band. Children younger than 16 years must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.

SMOKEY POINT — Slowly but surely the cities of Arlington and Marysville are making progress toward a joint manufacturing/industrial center, according to officials from both cities. City of Marysville Chief Administrative Officer Gloria Hirashima spoke with The Marysville Globe and The Arlington Times after Paul Ellis, community and economic development director for the city of Arlington, spoke to the Arlington City Council on Monday, March 10, about the two cities’ status in developing the manufacturing/industrial center. Ellis noted that 54.8 percent of the MIC falls within Arlington’s boundaries, while the remaining 45.2 percent is part of Marysville. Like Hirashima, he sees the strength of the MIC as drawing not from either of the two specific cities, but from the area as a whole. “Businesses aren’t choosing to come to Arlington or Marysville so much as they’re choosing to come to this region,” Hirashima said. “By providing an outlet for manufacturing and industry to grow in this region, we’d be bolstering employment and serving as a resource for the county as a whole.” “The Arlington/ Marysville MIC has the potential to be Snohomish County’s second largest manufacturing/industrial employment center, after Paine Field in Everett,” Ellis said. “It would complement Paine Field, rather than compete with it,” Hirashima said. “We’d both be contributing to the aerospace sector.” Ellis listed a host of benefits to the MIC site; it’s centrally located between Seattle and British Columbia, it’s accessible via Interstate 5 and State Routes 9, 529, 530 and 531, it ties into an active rail spur and it includes a general aviation airport in Arlington. “We’ve already worked with Marysville to regionalize our plans and provide adequate infrastructure to accommodate the growth of the MIC,” Ellis said. “We’re also conscious of the need to align our economic

strategies. We’ve worked really hard to streamline our permitting process for new construction and new business, and I know Marysville has too.” Mar ysville and Arlington’s respective Public Works directors, Kevin Nielsen and Jim Kelly, have also met with the Snohomish County Public Utility District to ensure that the two cities’ utility lines align seamlessly within the MIC as well. “Arlington already has a lot more existing jobs and industrial development in place within the MIC,” Hirashima said. “Our side of the MIC is still largely vacant land. Arlington offers an advantage to businesses who want to be able to move into buildings more quickly, but if a business wants to own their own building, and to tailor it to their own needs, then a lot that’s still empty might be more what they’re looking for. We each come with our own benefits, and I’m glad that our joint MIC has that range of possibilities for businesses to work with, to serve different needs.” Employment within the joint MIC boundary was 5,580 jobs as of 2012, and approximately 70 percent of those jobs were categorized as family-wage aerospace and high-tech industrial jobs. The MIC’s zoning includes general industrial, light industrial, business park and aviation flightline, with some areas of highway commercial and general commercial. “Most of the area is underdeveloped and has more than 1,200 acres ready for development,”

A thousand shades of gray


e said, “Have a great day,” but I heard, “Have a gray day.” Why this reversal of mood? Why did I turn a happy wish into a downer? The simple reason is that I’m feeling SADness, or Seasonal Affective Disorder. And from what I’ve gathered the SAD syndrome has gone viral hereabouts. I’m normally pretty positive. The glass half-full, sunny-side up, every cloud has a silver lining — that sort of mindset. But I’ve had my fill of soggy cold weather and links with clinging to my pillow after the alarm has gone off. For early risers it is still dark outside. And wet. And cold. Why rush to face that sort of day? Long-faced locals gather to share feelings of depression, apathy, listlessness and the various aches and pains that afflict sufferers of SAD. It’s been called a latitudinal ailment that strikes residents of the north. It’s also a climatic ailment, striking residents of cloudy west coast marine climates. It’s also a product of topography, targeting zones where hills and valleys duct air currents into collisions that muck up what might otherwise be sunny days. I detected subtle variations in the cloud cover on the 7th of March. A basic gray lightened where the cloud thinned and darkened where thicker. Below, a



mineral gray Puget Sound lapped at the gunmetal gray of the lower beach that graded into slate gray upper beach, just below the gull gray of the sand above. How do you like those names for those shades of gray? Like researchers who delve into causes for other ailments, I decided to learn more about the gray cause of SAD. So I picked up a copy of Ridgway’s Birds of North and Middle America that helps birders to identify bird species by gradations of color. Ridgway shows 115 shadings that span the range between off-white to nearly black. The names given to shades of gray on paint cans don’t work so well, sounding as they do like the imaginings of blind poets, comfortable on the ear but offering few clues as to what’s inside. Among the Benjamin Moore paint catalog’s offerings are Old Soul, Gothic Arch, City Shadow, Wool Peacoat and Chateau. Go figure. It would be better to have color names that mean something hereabouts. I’ve personally known soggy-shoes gray, rain-in-the-face gray, horizon-to-horizon flat gray,

is the sky every going to break gray, top-of-the-cloud pearl gray, run-for-cover gray, squall-line gray and you-can’t-tell-the-pavementfrom-the-sky gray. Each of those has dull-dry and wet-glossy versions. If we have to spend so much time with gray, we ought to be able to voice each of its depressing natures. We live in clouds and rain like Eskimos live in snow. But they have more than 50 words for snow which tells me that they’ve studied their environment way more than we have. Some don’t care to know our depressing winters better and flee. More than a million snowbirds dodge the PNW’s gray season in RVs, staying away for an average of 12 weeks. An even greater number hole up in southern condos, apartments, park models and even tents. They swell the populations of Phoenix, Tucson, Palm Springs, Indio and Yuma to bursting where they busy themselves studying different shades of tan. The snowbird’s intent is to avoid SAD much like the Europeans who once fled cities to avoid the Black Plague. And like those ancient refugees found, the act of running away, like flu-shots, is no guarantee of relief. The Mayor of Tulsa recently reported an outbreak of SAD in his city, proving that for a hapless few, you can run

but you can’t hide. Still, wintering in the south does reduce the odds of contracting the affliction. Doctors and counselors have lists of home therapies for the majority of us who are unable to get out from under the gray. They say that lots of bright lights will help. Tropical fruits and umbrella drinks are supposed to have an effect. They encourage fighting back by indulging in winter sports. Try staying busy, go to movies, they say. Some say you can train your mind to find benefits in a Puget Sound winter. It’s cool enough to store beer on the porch, freeing up room in the fridge. No need to water or mow the lawn. Not so many guests from out of state to clutter the guest room. Green fees are cheaper and you sometimes have an entire course to yourself. Studies show that stay-at-homes actually have less conscious time to be aware of the grayness. They try reading but doze off, shortening their days by some minutes. Slumbering through long nights takes care of more time. As a final consolation, when things get too dreary, dismal, depressing and damp, remember that this too shall pass. Have a gray day.

Lakewood superintendent announces retirement BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

LAKEWOOD — On April 18, Dr. Dennis Haddock will mark the close of nine years with the Lakewood School District and 33 years in K-12 public education. After serving as assistant superintendent of the Lakewood School District for three years, Haddock was selected to replace Larry Francois as superintendent in 2008. Although Haddock had applied for the Marysville School District superintendent role that was left vacant by Dr. Larry Nyland last year, before Dr. Becky Berg was chosen to replace him, Haddock assured the community that he was not moving on to a new school district, but was instead simply moving on to greener pastures. “Marysville was an opportunity I was interested in, but after that passed, I began contemplating retirement,” Haddock said. “The main reason I’m leaving before the end of the school year is to take advantage of the leave that I’ve accrued by scheduling some vacation time.” In the meantime, Haddock expressed confidence in the stewardship of Dr. Michael Mack, director of student services

“Even with all the state mandates and state testing, our staff has never lost sight of the need to take care of the whole child, rather than just focusing singlemindedly on student achievement at all costs.” Dr. Dennis Haddock, Superintendent, LWSD and Career and Technical Education for the Lakewood School District, who is currently slated to serve as the interim superintendent through June 30. “Mike knows the district and its buildings, so he’s a great choice,” Haddock said. “He’ll be able to help the new permanent superintendent transition into their role.” When looking back on his own role, which began six years ago with a promise to build better partnerships with district parents, Haddock was quick to credit the Lakewood School District Board of Directors, school staff members and the surrounding community with contributing significantly to the successes that the district has enjoyed during his tenure. “A lot of good initiatives were developed by all of us working collaboratively,” Haddock said. “Two to three years before the state had even mandated its instructional frameworks, we had already adopted one

of those three frameworks. Our staff already had a great investment in working collaboratively before I came here, so I had the opportunity to support the practices that were in place.” Haddock likewise lauded the Lakewood School District for fostering a culture centered on effective education, within which instructors examine their peers’ practices, as well as their own, in ways that Haddock sees as tying into the ongoing monitoring of student progress. “Even with all the state mandates and state testing, our staff has never lost sight of the need to take care of the whole child, rather than just focusing single-mindedly on student achievement at all costs,” Haddock said. “There are all sorts of little things that school staff do every day, that have nothing to do with my leadership, that develop the character of these children by encouraging them to become creative learners who take

ing the continued growth of this district,” Haddock said. “As long as you listen carefully, the support of the community and the commitment of the staff makes this really not that tough of a job. I’ve enjoyed it. I’ve worked in five other school districts, but I’ve appreciated the size and culture of Lakewood these past nine years. It allows a level of interconnectedness that you

can’t just mandate. When you have a critical mass of committed and energized people, it makes for a good team environment. These people get engaged in their work, and I appreciate all of their contributions.” Haddock has no immediate plans for retirement, but expects he’ll soon be recruited into a number of activities around the community.

Marysville Rotary donates to Lakewood schools BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

LAKEWOOD — The Lakewood School District’s three elementary schools officially became recipients of the Rotary Club of Marysville’s generosity yet again on Wednesday, March 5. Marysville Rotary President Daryn Bundy attended the Lakewood School Board meeting that evening to present an oversized check for $3,000, with $1,000 going to each of the libraries of Lakewood Elementary School, English Crossing Elementary and Cougar Creek Elementary.

“In the 14 years since the Marysville Rotary started its annual ‘Pumpkins for Literacy’ campaign, we’ve raised more than $200,000 for local schools,” said Bundy, who added that the allocations for this year’s funds will include $12,000 for Scholastic Press books for kindergarten through third-grade students. “Those books will be distributed through those schools’ principals. Kids who read do succeed.” Bundy acknowledged that a host of other Halloween and autumn harvest pumpkin-purchasing options have sprung up in the area since the Marysville

Rotary pumpkin patch has started and kept chugging along, so he expressed his gratitude to those loyal supporters of “Pumpkins for Literacy,” who have returned to the Plant Farm in Smokey Point each October. “Between family operations, grocery stores and corporate outlets, it’s been getting progressively harder to squeeze out those dollars, so we really appreciate those folks who take the time to come on by, year after year,” Bundy said. Bundy went on to tout the Rotary Club of Marysville’s further connections to the Lakewood School District through Marysville

Rotarian and Lakewood High School Principal Dale Leach, who will serve as faculty chair for the incoming Rotary Interact Club, which Bundy expects will be chartered by this June. “It’s all about the students, really applying themselves to supporting community service right here in Lakewood,” Bundy said. “It’s run by Rotary, but it’s still the students’ club.” Bundy had previously presented an oversized check for $10,000 to the Marysville School District’s Board of Directors on Jan. 21.

acknowledged that the “Pumpkins for Literacy” program’s methods of allocating its funds have undergone slight revisions in recent years, but asserted that its focus on literacy programs has remained intact. “We’re always looking for the most effective ways to impact literacy with the monies we raise,” said Edmonds, who recalled how Rotary had previously dispensed dictionaries to third-grade students, but in 2012 began handing out thousands of Scholastic Press books to first- through thirdgraders throughout Marysville and Lakewood.

Pediatric dentists provide care for young patients ARLINGTON — Dr. Justin Smith, of Arlington Pediatric Dentistry, believes that most pediatric dentists go into the field for the same reasons that he did. “Our goal for our young patients is the same goal that their parents have in bringing them to us,” Smith said. “We want children to have the best experiences possible when they receive dental care, so that their experiences don’t put up any barriers between them and further dental treatments in the future. Most pediatric dentists had a bad experience or two when we were kids, which is why we feel so strongly about not passing on such traumas to future generations.” According to Smith, starting children’s dental appointments early is at least as important as providing them with pleasant experiences. “Parents should be bringing their children into the

dentist six months after their first teeth have erupted, which usually falls right around a child’s first birthday,” Smith said. “During that first appointment, your family’s pediatric dentist should consult with you about your child’s diet, and how you can keep their teeth clean to prevent tooth decay. The goal should be that your child never has a cavity. We prefer prevention to treatment after the fact.” Smith warns healthconscious parents that even healthy foods and liquids can do damage to teeth if allowed to linger in children’s mouths. “Breast milk and formula are good for helping your child’s development by providing them with vitamins, but if they sit on kids’ teeth overnight, whether they’re healthy or not, any carbohydrates can ferment and become acidic,” Smith said. “As those kids get older, fruit juices and fruit snacks often become the next common culprit for causing cavities, because they tend to stick to

Angela “Angie” L. Burghduff p a s s e d away to her Savior Jesus on January 27, 2014 in M a r ysv i l le, WA. Angela was born April 28, 1976 in Fresno, CA and lived her life in WA. Angela attended Marysville Pilchuck High School and Seattle Highline High School, later earning her GED. She completed college courses for a counseling degree. Angela worked for years as a Managed Care Claims Processor at Providence General Hospital, and at Premera Blue Cross Insurance. A ngela wi l l b e remembered for her beauty, loving heart, friendly personality and adventurous spirit. Her sons, Ruben Jr. and Diego, are the love and joy of Angela’s heart and life. She enjoyed gardening, nature, pets, music, movies, comedy, reading, interior decorating, photographic design, and having fun. With her gardening abilities,

she nurtured flowers and plants to bloom with beauty. Angela is survived by her beloved sons, Ruben Castillo Jr. and Diego Salazar; by her mother, Lorraine and stepfather, Will Miller; sister, Lisa (Hameed) Marshall; brother, Micah Miller; brothers, Scott and Matt; niece, Jenika; nephews, Jacob and Mekai; grandparents, Don and Maybelle Pearson, and Marlene and Duane Bolton; and also by many other extended family members and friends. Angela is preceded in death by her sister, Kristina “Tina” Burghduff. Angela will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.

teeth and are high in sugar.” Smith explained that how frequently children drink fruit juice has as much of an impact as the amount of fruit juice they drink. “If your kid is sipping from a juice box all day long, they’re constantly introducing their teeth to more sugar,” Smith said. “Pediatric dentists will joke that we’d rather have a kid drink a gallon of a super-sugary drink in 15 minutes at lunchtime than have them sipping a more watered-down sugary drink for eight hours.” Smith acknowledged that other potential dental traumas, such as toddlers cutting their gums or chipping their teeth as they bump into things or fall down, aren’t always preventable, but recommended that younger children be taken to the dentist every six months, to help deal with any number of dramatic changes. “A child can quickly go from having six to 16 teeth,” said Smith, who refers parents for orthodontic exams when their children are as young as 7 years. “They won’t get anything like braces until they’re around 12, but early referrals can correct a number of issues,

Between the ages of 7-8 is actually an ideal time for a retainer to facilitate the eruption of new teeth.” A dental chore that’s often overlooked by patients, but is important at any age, is proper flossing, even when children only have their baby teeth. “Even if your child has a healthy diet and is doing a

great job of brushing their teeth, they can still get cavities between their teeth if they’re not flossing,” Smith said. “And when those cavities come, they usually come in pairs, because of how close together their teeth are.” Smith is frequently asked how important baby teeth are, since they eventually fall out anyway. “Baby teeth, or primary

teeth, have three main functions,” Smith said. “First, they allow children to chew. The importance of pain-free feeding directly relates to your child’s diet, nutrition and overall health. Second, baby teeth are important for speech development, and finally, they provide a pathway for permanent teeth to erupt in a timely manner. Premature tooth loss, from cavities or infection, allows the remaining teeth to move into those empty spaces, and ultimately cause crowding, while cavities on baby teeth can cause permanent teeth to have a higher cavity susceptibility.” The sooner that cavities are diagnosed and treated, the less invasive the treatment will be.

Levesque, employees recognized for service to schools BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

ARLINGTON — The Arlington School District recently recognized one of its parents, as well as a whole category of its employees, for their contributions of time and effort to the quality of local children’s educational experiences. Arlington School District parent Mary Levesque was joined by her husband and most of her children at the Arlington School Board meeting on Monday, March 10, when ASD Superintendent Dr. Kristine McDuffy and Assistant Superintendent Diane Kirchner-Scott presented her with a certificate and small tokens of appreciation, for her many hours and years of volunteer service on behalf of the Arlington schools. “Mary is just an outstanding community member,” McDuffy said. “You’ll see her everywhere, from the [American Council on Education] Committee to the PTA Council, the latter of which she currently chairs and she started to coordinate the PTAs in our district. She’s held office in the Kent Prairie Elementary PTA every year that she’s been here, and has held just about every office in that PTA by now.”

McDuffy also credited Levesque with helping to kick off the Arlington School District’s first backto-school backpack rally, and noted the active role that Levesque has played in the annual Kent Prairie Elementary PTA Carnival, which took place on Friday, March 14, this year. “She is extremely supportive of our schools and always willing to help wherever she’s needed,” McDuffy said of Levesque. “I can’t say enough about all that she’s done, and I’m so thankful that we’ve had her here.” Levesque, an Arlington School District parent for the past eight years, was joined by her husband Ken, as well as her children Melanie, Deborah, Zachary and Katelyn. Daughters Emily and Natalie were unable to attend that evening’s Board meeting. The Arlington School District’s classified employees were likewise honored, during that same Board meeting, for their own contributions to their schools. Mike Johnson, executive director of human resources for the Arlington School District, joined members of the district’s Leadership Team in reading aloud state Gov. Jay Inslee’s proclamation officially declaring March 10-14 to be “Classified Employees

Week,” in keeping with its typical annual celebration in March. “Our classified employees are the muscle behind our schools’ operations,” said Johnson, who noted that classified employees include para-educators, bus drivers, food service workers, secretaries, custodians and maintenance workers — essentially, anyone working in the district who is not certificated. “They keep our schools clean, our children healthy and both of them safe. The amount of help they provide is amazing, and it makes them our superheroes.” While each of the Arlington schools celebrated their classified employees slightly differently, common gestures of appreciation included special lunches, dessert buffets and non-classified employees covering their recess or lunchroom supervision duties. Arlington High School Principal Brian Beckley reported that their classified employees would be treated to lunch on Tuesday, March 11, and breakfast on March 14, while Pioneer Elementary Principal Kerri Helgeson proudly touted that her school would celebrate Classified Employees Week as “Superhero Week,” complete with “hero sand-

Terri Bookey, program support specialist for the Stillaguamish Valley School. After Bookey, HendersonBurke, Helgeson and Beckley joined Haller Middle School Principal Eric DeJong in reciting Inslee’s proclamation, the Board was treated to a slideshow of classified employees at work, and the classified employees in attendance were asked to stand

so they could be applauded. “We appreciate all that you do, every day of the year,” Board President Ursula Ghirardo told the classified employees. ASD Public Information Coordinator Andrea Conley added that the district conducts an annual dinner for the classified employees as well, whose theme this year is “Let’s Bring On Spring.”

Mountain bike Inglemoor ends Arlington’s season teams combine to form Team Pilchuck Arlington guard Jessica Ludwig drives her way past an Inglemoor defender.


ARLINGTON — The Lakewood and Arlington high schools composite mountain bike teams have merged this year and will be riding as Team Pilchuck for the 2014 season. What does this mean for the kids? According to mountain biking head coach Heidi Klippert, it means that Lakewood and Arlington will now compete with and not against each other at races. Team points will be calculated as one, not two schools giving riders a better chance at placing in overall team competition. Students attend Lakewood, Burlington, Arlington, Granite Falls and Lake Stevens, and the Pilchuck name was a natural fit. Additionally, all teammates belong to the Pilchuck Mountain Bikers Club, a trail building group, and donate their time working on local area trails. On March 9, the team held a Lap-a-thon fundraiser at the Arlington Airport to help cover expenses. Student riders logged a total of 390 miles, or 65 laps around the airport. Coaches and

friends joined them for a total of 616 miles ridden in just four hours on a rainy Sunday. Though tired and wobbly, the kids rode through the mud and were proud of their endurance. Their first race will be March 23 at Fort Steilcoom in Tacoma. Currently 27 high school and middle school teams are participating in the Washington League, and coaches and riders are excited for race day. Other upcoming events include movie night at the Lincoln Theater in Mount Vernon on April 19. For more information, visit node/858. Life Cycles and Follow Me will be shown, and tickets are $10. Team Pilchuck and the Pilchuck Mountain Bikers Club are fundraising in collaboration with the Lincoln Theater to raise money for team expenses, insurance for trail users and trail building equipment. For more information, contact Klippert at or Arlington Velo Sport at 360-629-6415.

ARLINGTON — The Lady Eagles’ playoff run stopped on March 7, when they were topped by Inglemoor, 46-26, in a loser-out game in the WIAA 4A State Girls Basketball Tournament. Inglemoor went on to claim the fourth place spot from Skyview, on March 8. Arlington didn’t have much trouble getting through the 4A District and Regional playoffs, but their effort to place at State was cut short at the Hardwood Classic in Tacoma. Last season, the Eagles placed second in State, but their visit at the Tacoma Dome this season was bit of a disappointment. It was the Eagles’ offense that didn’t show up during the State Tournament. The Eagles earned a trip the Dome by defeating Todd Beamer, 35-33, on March 1 in the 4A Regionals. On March. 6, Arlington was soundly defeated, 46-28, in the opening round of the State Tournament by Moses Lake. The loss sent them to the loserout bracket. “We just had a hard time scoring,” Arlington head coach Joe Marsh said about their first game. “It’s hard to compete against a good team when you can’t score.” Scoring didn’t come easy in Arlington’s final game of the season, on March 7, against Inglemoor. The Eagles were nearly shut out in the first period, only scoring one point. The Eagles lost sophomore forward Jayla Russ early in the game to an injury which didn’t help Arlington. “We lost Jayla and that was huge for us,” Marsh said. “She’s a big part of

what we do.” The situation improved in the second quarter for the Eagles, but didn’t get much better in the successive periods. The main obstacle the Eagles faced was Inglemoor’s 6-foot-4 junior post Deja Strother. Strother always met the Eagles inside the paint to disrupt Arlington’s offense by using her size. She was also the top scorer for Inglemoor, hitting for 13 points. On top of Strother’s presence, the Eagles just didn’t shoot well in either of their playoff games on March 6 and 7. “That’s really what it has been for the last two days,” Marsh said. “Our defense has been great, but we were unable to put the ball in the basket.” There aren’t many players taller than Arlington’s center Lyndsay Leatherman, but Strother was. “That’s a tough match up for anyone in the state,” Marsh said. “Leatherman’s a big strong girl, and you’re not going to run into Deja too much.” The lone senior scored four points for Arlington and pulled in 10 rebounds. “We just wanted her to work hard and help her as much as we could,” Marsh said. Arlington sophomore guard Gracie Castaneda had an exceptionally good game. She scored 10 points and hit two 3-pointers in the game. The Eagles’ defense was there as always, but they couldn’t convert on offense. The first quarter was perhaps the most destructive for Arlington. Arlington allowed a 17-1 run in the opening period. Russ hit her head hard with about

30 seconds left in the first quarter. She was out for the rest of the game. Arlington rallied in the second half. The Eagles were able to make it a ninepoint game at halftime. Castaneda turned on at the right time when she hit two 3-pointers in the second period. The signature Eagles defense only allowed Inglemoor to score seven points. Inglemoor was ahead 24-15 at halftime. The Eagles’ much-needed effort in the second period didn’t carry over, however. Inglemoor kept on top of scoring, and the Eagles only put together five points in the third period. Arlington was bested again by Inglemoor, 35-20 at the end on the third period. Inglemoor outscored Arlington again in the final period. Though the last two games for Arlington was less than stellar, the Eagles have a lot to hang their hats on in the season. Arlington was No. 1 in Wesco 4A North and finished with an overall record of 21-6. Losing only one senior, Arlington has plenty to look forward to next season. The experience the girls have accumulated at the Tacoma Dome, and the season as a whole, will benefit them next season. “You can’t pay for that kind of experience,” Marsh said. “When we get back here again, those kids will be ready for it.” Gonzaga Prep took first in the WIAA 4A State Girls Basketball Tournament, by defeating Mount Rainier, 53-51, on March 8.

SVS students participate in mock trial


ARLINGTON — Attendees of the Arlington School Board meeting on Monday, March 10, were treated to a unique recreation of a court case, as students from the Stillaguamish Valley School re-enacted scenes from their mock trial on Friday, February 14. Terri Bookey, program support specialist for the Stillaguamish Valley School, explained that the students had been preparing since October, and received a hands-on experience in civics by presenting their case before a real judge in a real courtroom, with a real deputy sheriff and prosecuting

attorney not only observing the trial proceedings, but also offering advice to the participants following their trial. “They had to follow the rules of an actual trial, in this case for criminal assistance in the first degree,” Bookey said. “Additionally, this was not a cut-and-dried case. It was very complicated.” Among the complications of this particular mock trial was that its case was based on the plot and characters of Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel, “The Mystery of Edwin Drood.” While MacKenna Kelly and Anastasia Dickson took turns as the prosecuting and

defense attorneys during that evening’s School Board meeting, Gabe Jett drew chuckles from the crowd with his turn as the private detective Bazzard, who was called to testify as a witness. Dickson and Jett were among the Stillaguamish Valley School students who were singled out after their mock trial for their performances as witnesses. “This is two and a half hours of each team thinking on their feet,” Michelle Marang, enrichment program coordinator for the Stillaguamish Valley School, said of her students. “They worked really hard and put in a lot of hours. A lot of our kids are eighth-graders, and

they were going up against juniors and seniors in high school.” According to Arlington School District Public Information Coordinator Andrea Conley, the YMCA Mock Trial program provides a venue for teens to experience and learn about

working as a team, as well as developing their leadership, citizenship and debating skills. “Students adhere to strict behavior and dress codes, teaching them professionalism and confidence in addition to critical thinking, public speaking and


problem solving skills,” Conley said. “The YMCA Mock Trial mission to ‘Teach Democratic values and skills to youth through hands-on experiences’ is being fulfilled in the lives of our Stillaguamish Valley School student participants.”

Brian Bishop AWC employees that they graduated from the academy so quickly,” Tolbert agreed. Retrospective Rating is a safety incentive program offered by the state Department of Labor and Industries, which allows participating employers to earn a partial refund of their workers’ compensation premiums, if they reduce workplace injuries and lower associated claim costs. The AWC Retro program provides its member cities with services dedicated to the safety of their employees, from losscontrol services, to reduce the frequency and severity of workplace injuries, to claims management

services, to reduce claims costs and bring employees safely back to work. AWC Retro also provides cities the opportunity to qualify for workers’ compensation premium refunds. Bishop explained that the city of Arlington has earned a 15 percent refund on its AWC Retro fee by meeting the bar of having four or more staff members who are academy graduates. While Downey could not receive his certificate that night, Bishop presented Safety Academy Award certificates to Mensonides as airport coordinator, Fritts as water services specialist and Patterson as purchasing coordinator.

Safety needs to be a priority when kids play sports BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — While keeping kids active is important, keeping them physically safe in the process is just as vital. Dr. Vuong Vo, of Performance Chiropractic in Marysville, tends more toward the athletic side of chiropractic which has brought a lot of young athletes to his office with injuries incurred on the field, but he focuses just as much on trying to prevent children and teens from getting injured while playing sports. “I work with athletes to enhance their performance naturally by providing them with the body mechanics that afford the best ways of utilizing and getting the most out of their bodies,” Vo said. “With kids in general, it’s most often a lack of preparation and intensity in those body mechanics that causes them to come to me with such injuries.” Vo touted the value of strength training, even among younger children, to help grant greater endurance to the most-used joints in sports — the shoulders, knees and ankles — in spite of the

stresses of the repetitive use that those joints go through as a result of sports and other strenuous activities. “I show them ways to check themselves and make their bodies last longer,” Vo said. “It’s a bit of a taboo subject among doctors, asking how early is too early to start strength training, and certainly, I’m not talking about putting little kids into body-building programs. Even cross-fit training would be too intensive for younger ages. I’m just talking about building core strength in the areas around those major joints so that they move like they should and aren’t compromised.” Vo elaborated that calisthenics can be valuable in this regard, in addition to light weightlifting, depending on the physical attributes of the young athlete in question, as well as which sport he or she is preparing to play. “There are lots of determining factors,” Vo said. “I wouldn’t want to see young kids lifting 40-50 pounds of weights, but if, say, they’re going into peewee football, the age of 8 or 9 would be good for them to start lifting one-pound weights, to learn

those proper body mechanics. If you teach your joints to move in the correct ways off the field, they’ll do so on the field, which lessens your chances of tearing your tendons or suffering other bad push-backs when you get hit.” Vo also advised parents to watch their kids’ movements, to check for any signs of potential or budding injuries. “As you’re on the sidelines, look at how their bodies are interacting,” Vo said. “If they favor their right leg or their left shoulder, they may be hurting. A lot of parents take it for granted that their kids will get hurt playing sports, but if they train and perform better, they’ll spend less time seeing guys like me.” Kelli Graves, trauma coordinator at Cascade Valley Hospital in Arlington, wants parents and coaches alike to take more seriously a frequent sports injury that has no outward signs. “If you have a kid with a broken arm or a broken leg, there’s not a coach in the world that’s going to send them back out to play,” Graves said. “But a broken brain? We do it all the time. Traumatic brain injuries can range from not being able to walk or talk,

An MRI might not show a lot, but after six to 10 weeks, you’ll want an MRI to see if there might be a small bleed.” According to Graves, the top sports for concussions are football, bicycling, basketball

and girls soccer. “Girls soccer results in more concussions than any other sport,” Graves said. “Girls’ sports are not like they used to be. The girls themselves are bigger, stronger and more aggressive than they used to be.” While properly fitted sports equipment, such as helmets, play an essential role in helping to prevent concussions, no young athlete is entirely immune. “It’s the second concussion that has the most long-term effects,” Graves said. “If you can’t see an injury, it’s easy to let it slide, but if you have a brain injury, you have to let it rest.”

to simple concussions from sports, but it’s still a traumatic brain injury.” Graves pointed out that concussions can have a greater impact on younger people, because their neurons are still forming and their brains have more room to move around inside their skulls. She also warned that neither parents nor coaches should treat the loss of consciousness as the standard by which to judge a concussion’s severity. “Most concussions occur without a loss of consciousness,” Graves said. “Parents might think, ‘Oh, he didn’t pass out, so it’s no big deal,’ but it can be just as bad.” Among the symptoms of concussions that Graves listed are an inability to concentrate, a susceptibility to sensory overload, and an inability to stand up on their own, or to recall the events immediately preceding the concussion. “They’ll typically be dazed, confused and stunned right after they’ve been concussed, and longer term, you could see behavior changes, or forgetting class schedules or assignments,” Graves said. “That’s along with symptoms like headaches, nausea and sensitivity to light.” Not only do concussed

Donald Bennett Williams was born in Athens, Georgia to Daniel and Frances Williams on May 20, 1935. With his passing on March 4, 2014, Don joins his daughter, Trish Williams, and many other family members, as they celebrate eternity in the arms of the Lord. Don moved to California with his mother and two younger sisters after high school. He joined the Army and served with the 7th Cav Division, 31st Infantry Regiment “Polar Bears” in Korea, and was a recipient of the Korean Service Defense medal among others. He also served with the 1st Cav Division, 8th Infantry in Japan, and finished his service with the 6th Army at Fort Irwin, California. Don met his wife Carol in California September 18, 1965. They were married May 21, 1966 in Las Vegas, enjoying 48 years together. He really enjoyed sports; he never forgot his love for University of Georgia football but extended it to include the University of Washington Huskies and was thrilled to see his Seattle Seahawks win Super Bowl XLVIII! He retired from the Washington State Department of Corrections, where he was named the Twin Rivers Correctional Officer of the Year in 1989. Don loved volunteering, especially his 10-plus years with South Everett Little League. His fondest umpiring memory

was “behind the plate’ at the Senior State girl’s softball game in Walla Walla. He was a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and served as Post Commander, Boyer Daniel Post 1561 in Arlington WA, and as District 1 Commander for the Dept of Washington. He was a member of American Legion Post 76, also in Arlington, and the Early Bird Lions Club in Everett, holding leadership positions in both of those organizations. Don loved God & country, and cherished his family more than life itself. He is survived by his wife Carol, daughters Michelle Edwards (Doug), Sharon Abraham (Dalen), Janet Johnston (Scott), grandchildren Aaron, Gabriel (Jordan), Christian, and Nathaniel Boughner, AnnMarie Johnston, and Emma and Evan Abraham; great-grandsons Noah and Jonas Boughner; nephew David Ballard (Michelle), and other family. He was preceded in death by his beloved daughter Trish in 1985, his parents, sisters Annette and Harriett, and nephew Danny. Don was his Family’s Hero, the Best Husband, the Best Dad, and the Best Grandpa ever! They will love him forever! Memorial donations may be made in his memory to Housing Hope in Everett WA ( ) or to the VFW National home for Children in Eaton Rapids MI. ( Visit

Legion collects for troops, celebrates 95th birthday

ARLINGTON — Arlington American Legion Post 76 is continuing to help support American troops serving overseas, even as its members gear up for the American Legion’s 95th birthday. The Arlington Legion’s donation drive for “Operation Desert Comfort” began in the latter half of February, and culminated in a day-long collection of non-perishable foods and personal hygiene items in Legion Park on Saturday, March 8, which was sufficient to fill their waist-high barrel. Barb Lloyd, who handles public relations for Arlington American Legion Post 76, thanked all those who turned out in spite of the day’s wet, dreary weather to drop off everything from snacks to toothbrushes. “Our barrel is now overflowing,” Lloyd said. “We hope to do this a few more times during the year, outside of the Legion, but in the meantime, there’s still a barrel in the Legion if anyone would like to donate non-perishable foods or personal hygiene items.” Among the requested items are disposable razors, travel-size shampoo, mouthwash, toothbrushes, floss, chips, cookies, cupof-noodles soup, Pop Tarts, sardines, crackers, instant oatmeal, gum, Tabasco sauce and baby wipes. Do not include chocolate, as it will melt. A full list of requested items is currently posted on the front door of Arlington American Legion Post 76, located at 115 N. Olympic Ave. “Cash donations are also welcome, and will be used either to buy goods for the troops, or to go toward the shipping costs to send those care packages to Afghanistan,” Lloyd said. “Please help us send a little something from home to our brave men and women serving overseas. As one gentleman told me that Saturday, he served

“We hope to do this a few more times during the year, outside of the Legion, but in the meantime, there’s still a barrel in the Legion if anyone would like to donate non-perishable foods or personal hygiene items.” Barb Lloyd American Legion Post 76 during peacetime, and it felt so good for him to get something from home, so he could scarcely imagine how those serving in Afghanistan during this time of war would feel to receive such packages.” Lloyd expressed her appreciation to the Arlington community for chipping in to provide those troops with some small measure of comfort from America, and invited local veterans to the Arlington American Legion Post 76 commemoration of the American Legion’s 95th birthday on Saturday, March 15, from 4-6 p.m., again at 115 N. Olympic Ave. “March 15 is the designat-

ed birthday of the American Legion, as the day in 1919 when the first American Legion caucus, conducted by members of the American Expeditionary Force, convened in Paris, France,” Lloyd said. “It is the date that the American Legion came to life, and each year, Legion posts across the country conduct events to commemorate this anniversary.” The Arlington Legion’s ceremony will kick off at 4 p.m., with dinner to follow from 5-6 p.m. The meal will consist of ham, scalloped potatoes, green beans and rolls, all familiar favorites for Arlington Legionnaires, plus birthday cake, and will cost $7.

Silvana Fair Auction packs Viking Hall


SILVANA — The annual Silvana Community Fair Board Auction packed crowds into Viking Hall during its return on the evening of Saturday, March 8, and generated about the same amounts of turnout and dollars as most of the fundraiser’s recent years, according to Fair Board

Secretary Mary Manning. “The auction went well,” Manning said. “It was a crazy day leading up to the auction itself, with Murphy’s Law popping up to challenge us on multiple fronts, but everyone stayed calm, addressed those challenges as they came and brought everything together in time.” Silvana Community Fair Board Vice President Lynn

Pattison joined Manning in expressing the event organizers’ gratitude, not only to those who donated items for the silent and live auctions, but also to those who bid in those auctions to raise funds for the fair, since the auction is the primary source of monies which offset the fair’s costs, and allow its organizers to invite members of the surrounding community and beyond

for free, with no entrance or parking fees. “The Silvana Community Fair lives up to its name because it really is a community fair,” Manning said. “These funds provide premiums for the young contestants who show their animals, enter indoor exhibits, create posters, provide demonstrations and grow horticulture displays.” Pattison extended her thanks to those who bought gift certificates at the auction for more than their face value, “because they knew it was for the kids, and we appreciate them hugely,” as well as to the “young helpers” who also staffed the auction, many of them members of local 4-H clubs who were seeking to provide community service. “The kids were a big help in the back room and the kitchen, during our setup and cleanup, as well as behind the scenes during the auction itself,” Pattison said. “One little girl was working the crowd, selling Silvana Community Fair T-shirts, and she asked me no fewer than three times if I would like to buy one.

It was also super to see the level of support for donations to replace the electrical cords and related equipment that were stolen late last year.” Manning and Pattison added a shout-out to returning Silvana Community Fair Board auctioneers George Magnochi and Dave Fenton,

for their many years of service and support, as well as their flexibility and humor in the face of occasionally daunting obstacles. “Bottom line, this auction is the main fundraiser for our fair,” Manning said. “Without the community’s support, it’s difficult to imagine how the Silvana Community Fair could be.” As always, the Silvana Community Fair takes place on the last Saturday of July, which falls on July 26 this year.

which he loaded into a homeowner’s 2009 Toyota truck and left. The truck has since been recovered, but the rest of the belongings have not yet been located. The city of Arlington released stills of the video on its Facebook page, at www., and through www.CanYouID. me.
