TBD Board evaluates project priorities BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — The city of Marysville’s Transportation Benefit District Board met on Monday, March 17, to seek further clarification of the potential projects to be funded by an 0.02 percent sales tax increase on the April 22 special election ballot. City of Marysville Public Works Director Kevin Nielsen presented a revised 10-year plan for $13.5 Kirk Boxleitner/Staff Photo million in pavement preservaCity of Marysville Transportation Benefit District Board Chair Jeff Vaughan and tion and $2.5 million in shoulder Board member Donna Wright review the potential projects to be funded by an 0.02 and sidewalk capital improvement transportation projects. The percent sales tax increase on the April 22 special election ballot.

shoulder and sidewalk improvements would be paid for in equal installments of $250,000 per year and the pavement preservation would likewise be paid for in equal installments of $1.35 million each year. The pavement preservation dollars would be further divided among three geographic zones in Marysville, with each one receiving a total of $4.5 million each. The north zone would be north of 100th Street NE, the central zone would be south of 100th Street SEE TBD, PAGE 2

MARYSVILLE — Construction is already underway at Comeford Park to prepare it for its incoming spraypark, but the Marysville City Council didn’t award the bid for the construction of the spraypark itself until its meeting on Monday, March 17. Mark Obom, owner of Obom Construction in Lake Stevens, has already been painting the interior walls, applying decorative stones to the exterior walls and reconfiguring the layout of the restrooms at the north end of Comeford Park, to add changing rooms for the spraypark, but Obom’s contract is separate from that awarded to the Oregon-based Kelaye Concrete. “The addition of changing rooms to the restrooms at Comeford Park is coming from the city’s general fund,” city of Marysville Parks and Recreation Director Jim Ballew said, while paying a visit to Obom in Comeford Park on Thursday, March 20. “The construction of the spraypark is coming from a combination of the city’s capital fund and donations from the community.” The city put the spraypark construction project out to bid on March 6 and received five bids, with Kelaye Concrete coming in as the low bidder at $179,624.40, including state sales tax. The project

Eccos Design of Mount Vernon worked with the city on the design of the 3,000-square-foot spraypark, which will feature a main waterway down the middle, including approximately 30 jets of water, and four distinct play zones, intended to provide children with a diversity of play experiences. The spraypark’s design also sports a seating wall along its outside edge, to help prevent small children from wandering outside the area without their parents noticing. City of Marysville Public Works Director Kevin Nielsen anticipates that Kelaye Concrete should join

Obom Construction on site, and start its own construction work, within the next few weeks. “The spraypark should be open by mid-June, right on time for kids who are just getting out of school,” Nielsen said. “We’ve been looking at doing this for the past few years now.” While the Comeford Park restrooms are already fenced off, Nielsen promised that the rest of the park, outside of the spraypark construction zone, would remain open. “We’re locating the spraypark close to the restrooms, just south of the existing playground structure, so they’ll be more convenient as changing rooms,” Nielsen said. In the meantime, Ballew clarified that, while the city has allocated the funds for the spraypark construction, the Marysville Community Parks Foundation is managing contributions from the community to offset those costs. “Whatever we’re able to save on this project will be able to be transferred over to help cover other city parks projects,” Ballew said. “We’re meeting with service clubs, local businesses and other community groups to see if they can chip in, and

Eccos Design of Mount Vernon worked with the city of Marysville on the design of the 3,000-square-foot spraypark which offers a variety of features intended to provide children with a diversity of play experiences. the Marysville Community Parks Foundation will donate those monies to the city for the spraypark construction.” Ballew emphasized that the spraypark project encompasses more than just dropping a new activity feature in the middle of Comeford Park, but is instead intended to transform the park. “We’re going to be furnishing the site with additional tables and benches, and touching up both the restrooms and the Ken Baxter Community Center,” Ballew said. “This project is about giving the entire park a makeover.” Ballew and Nielsen believe the spraypark will benefit both the economy and the

quality of life of the city of Marysville. “The whole goal is to change the climate and culture of downtown Marysville,” Ballew said. “This will draw interest and generate new visitors, residents and businesses. More importantly, it will change the current use of Comeford Park, which is occasionally populated by small gangs, to a more family-oriented space.” “The spraypark is sure to be very popular with the surrounding community and beyond,” Nielsen said. “It’ll be a great way for families to spend some time together, cooling off during those warm, sunny days of summer.”

NE and north of Grove Street, and the south zone would be south of Grove Street. “We’d be focusing more on maintaining arterials and collectors, because they cost so much to reconstruct that you get the biggest bang for your buck there,” Nielsen said. “It’s like owning a house. If you don’t paint the outside, the siding goes bad. The roads are a wearing surface. We’re trying to keep water and other elements from penetrating that surface, and doing damage to the subbase.” Rob Toyer voiced a refrain that was common among his fellow TBD Board members, when he asserted the importance of letting the city’s citizens know where their tax dollars would be going, in as much specific detail as possible. Marysville City Attorney Grant Weed touted the “Marysville University” on Wednesday, March 26, as an opportunity to provide citizens with that level of specificity, but warned that any promises made would then represent the minimum of what taxpayers would expect. “Once that list goes out officially, the city has to be committed to it,” Weed said. Board Vice Chair Steve Muller reiterated the fre-

“It actually saves the city money, because we’ll be paying more for these repairs in the long run.” Kamille Norton TBD Boad member quently cited statistic that, if approved, the April 22 ballot measure would result in an increased tax of only 20 cents per every $100 of taxable goods purchased in the city of Marysville. “That’s a great value to the community,” Muller said. “It actually saves the city money, because we’ll be paying more for these repairs in the long run,” agreed fellow Board member Kamille Norton. Marysville University’s free spring quarter class will not only review the important road projects set for this year, but also conduct an interactive poll on how attendees would prioritize roadway preservation projects. The civics learning class is scheduled to run from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on March 26, in the Marysville City Council Chambers, on the second floor of Marysville City Hall, located at 1049 State Ave. Featured speakers are set to include not only Nielsen, but also Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring and Assistant City Engineer John Cowling.

Mack readies for role as interim LWSD superintendent BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

LAKEWOOD — Although he currently serves as Director of Student Services and Career and Technical Education for the Lakewood School District, Dr. Michael Mack will step into a new role starting on April 19, when he replaces Dr. Dennis Haddock as the district’s acting superintendent. And while Mack’s contract as superintendent only runs through June 30, in time for a new superintendent to be sworn in by July 1, he hopes to apply for the job and turn his temporary position into a long-term one. Of his 33 years in education, Mack has served the past six in Lakewood, after

stints in the Enumclaw, Lake Washington and Stanwood school districts, as well as his years spent serving as director of an international school in Latvia. “Lakewood is home for me,” Mack said. “My wife teaches in the district, and all three of our children have gone to school here. My youngest is graduating this year.” Mack expects he’ll only need to carry out the duties of interim superintendent for a couple of months, before a more permanent successor to Haddock can be found. Nonetheless, Mack deemed that window of time as vitally important for school district policies and operations. “We’ll be focusing on our staffing and budget,” Mack

said. “Prior to a new superintendent being installed, we’ll need to make some decisions in those areas, if only to ensure that we live within our means as a district.” Before any such new superintendent can be hired, Mack explained that the district must first settle on a search consultant to help them seek out and screen candidates. “There are about three or four different groups who do most of that work in this area, if not the state as a whole,” Mack said. “They’ll facilitate exchanges between school district staff and the surrounding community, to help us settle on what traits we’re looking for in a new superintendent, and what areas of the district need to

be tended to the most.” After those consultants guide the district through the process of crafting application forms for this position, Mack elaborated that the respondents would be whittled down, first to a likely number of six semifinalists, then to three finalists, each of whom would have their own day set aside for site visits to schools within the district. “It’s a process that we should probably wrap up sooner rather than later,” Mack said. “The whole search hopefully shouldn’t take more than five to six weeks, once it actually kicks off, so that our incoming superintendent can meet with district officials in

early June, and if the new super isn’t me, then I can meet with them to do a proper transition.” Mack extolled the unique virtues of the Lakewood School District, whose nature as a community he noted sets it slightly apart from those of neighboring Arlington and Marysville. “Arlington and Marysville have mayors and city councils, but for Lakewood, the school district is our community,” Mack said. “These schools are our focal point. They’re critical to who we are. They’re already vibrant, but they can be enhanced. Dennis has done a nice job here, and I’d be glad to continue that work. Lakewood is a little bit of Heaven,

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Thanks for supporting levy We would like to thank the Marysville School District voters for their support in our maintenance and operations and technology levies. Passage of the maintenance and operations levy provides 20 percent of our operating costs for the next four years. The state provides the other 80 percent. It is unfortunate that local levy dollars are needed to fund public education, but unless the state redefines basic education to include extra and cocurricular funding (doubtful unfortunately) we will still need a levy. The technology levy will provide 3 million per year over the next four years to create wireless access in all district school buildings. It will also help us educate

teachers on how to best utilize technology for learning. The fact that many young users far surpass district teachers in the ability to navigate through technology makes teacher inservice a high priority. These dollars will also put devices in the hands of most students and integrate curricular and technology learning. Strong schools make strong communities. Your support of Marysville schools enhances local business and stabilizes housing. We have seen our first enrollment gain in five years, and local levy support will strengthen future growth. Thank you again. I know the Marysville School District will be good stewards with your money. We will all gain by it.

Levy co-chairs, Don Whitfield and Pete Lundberg

Levy lid lift has major implications for Arlington’s public safety Dear citizens of Arlington, On April 22, you will be asked to cast your vote on a 58-cent increase in your city property tax rate to continue the current level of services that the city of Arlington offers. As the Chiefs of your Fire and Police Departments, we owe it to you, our customers, to communicate the facts about how our Public Safety services will change if the levy lid lift fails. The following are some of the anticipated impacts to our ability to provide public safety services. If the levy lid lift fails, the Arlington Fire Department will be unable to replace Ladder Truck 48. Ladder Truck 48 is over 18 years old, underpowered, costly to maintain and unreliable. Failing to replace Ladder Truck 48 will restrict our ability to reach your home or business in a timely manner or fight fires without help from our neighboring cities and departments. Much of our other firefighting apparatus and equipment has also reached the end of its useful life, is costly to maintain and simply unreliable. This includes the protective equipment for our firefighters, which has not been replaced due to the lack of revenue and the continued budget constraints. If we are not able to replace aging fire apparatus and unreliable equipment, and must reduce our staffing, we expect

GuEsT OpInIOn ChIEf BruCE STEDMAn it will have a negative impact on insurance rates our residents and businesses currently pay. Residents and businesses will likely see an increase to their fire insurance premiums by an average of 2 percent for residential and up to 8 percent on industrial and commercial buildings. Calls to the Arlington Police Department have increased by a dramatic 14 percent over the past year. In 2013, we experienced a 25 percent increase in the number of property crimes (burglaries, thefts and auto thefts) in our community, and a 14 percent increase in the number of burglaries. If the levy lid lift fails, it will result in changes to the way we provide police protection. In all likelihood, certain low-grade criminal and nuisance calls will no longer be responded to by officers. These will include crimes such as vandalism, thefts of less than $750, minor vehicle accidents, vehicle accidents occurring on private property, parking complaints, or civil issues. Callers would be referred to an online reporting system for resolution. In addi-

ChIEf nELSOn BEAzLEy tion, animal control services will likely be eliminated for the majority of the cases of stray or missing animals. Officers would only respond to complaints of vicious animals. Officers would only respond to complaints of vicious animals. In addition, most of the vehicles and equipment used by our police force are long past the end of their useful life, are unreliable and costly to maintain. To balance the 2014 budget, all equipment replacement funds were eliminated. Without a levy lid lift, vehicles will continue to lose reliability, limiting our ability to respond in emergencies, and maintenance costs will continue to increase. The future of Public Safety services in Arlington is up to you. Cast your decision by April 22, 2014.

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville School District will be presenting its summit on education, “Dream Big for Kids! Imagine Where We Can Go Together,” from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 29, in the commons and gymnasium of the Marysville Getchell High School campus. In February of 2013, the Marysville School District Board of Directors began an initiative to increase community involvement, by including parents, students, business and civic leaders, and other community members in conversations to improve the educational opportunities for Marysville students. The Marysville School Board began the process with a series of community forums, to help identify the successes of the Marysville School District and the areas where it needed to improve. The school district then utilized this information to focus on what it needed from a new superintendent, to help lead the district to its next levels of success. This led to the hiring of Dr. Becky Berg as superintendent, who has since done significant community outreach work, including meetings with parents, staff and community members, as well as a series of “Coffee and Conversations” with families in the community. While the district has learned much from this process, more insights are needed, which is where “Dream Big for Kids” comes in. Hundreds of Marysville and Tulalip community members are expected to join business leaders, parents, students and school district staff at this educational summit, to help envision the future of the Marysville School District and its children. This is a no-cost event, but space is limited, so it’s recommended that you reserve your seat at a table ASAP. To register, or for more information, call the Marysville School District at 360-653-7058, or visit its website at www.msvl.k12.

Mines introduced Florence Pryor, who’s not only the oldest member of the Post 76 Ladies Auxiliary, but is also six months older than the American Legion itself, while Raboin invited Snohomish High School senior Malcolm Coffman, a recipient of one of Post 76’s scholarships to Boys State, to share his experiences in the program. “It was a great time,” Coffman said of the mock government exercise, which he participated in by successfully running for the office of a Supreme Court justice. “I made all sorts of new friends, and I stayed up late for my election campaign, but it was all worth it.”

David Delancy stands as a silent sentinel, as America’s prisoners of war and missing-in-action are honored with a lone, empty table during the Arlington American Legion Post 76 commemoration of the Legion’s 95th birthday on March 15.

ARLINGTON — Although its attendance might have seemed relatively sparse at first, the turnout for the Arlington American Legion Post 76 commemoration of the Legion’s 95th birthday on Saturday, March 15, soon drew a healthy crowd to the Post 76 Lounge that afternoon. Prior to a hearty meal in the lounge, Arlington Legion Post 76 Cmdr. Chris Raboin was joined by Verna Mines, of Post 76’s Ladies Auxiliary, and Chaplain Jim Barron in conducting the day’s traditional ceremonies, which honored America’s prisoners of war and missing-inaction with a lone, empty table. Raboin touted the role of the Legion in supporting not only the veterans and national defense of America, but also the country’s youth and history, both of which were represented by special guests

“I’ve seen some terrific changes here over the years, and I’ve loved it. The Legion is my home away from home.” Coffman credited Boys State with giving him firsthand experience in leadership and a deeper understanding of how his country’s government functions. “I’ve gained a huge appreciation for what it takes to make this system possible, so I’d like to be more involved in it,” said Coffman, who expects to major in a scientific field, but is looking at some schools in Washington, D.C., where he might be able to pursue political studies as well. “Your scholarship inspired me to do that.” While Coffman was a visitor to Arlington, Pryor’s red, white and blue walker is a familiar sight to many of the town’s residents. Pryor was joined in the Legion Lounge that day by her friend, Margo Follis, and recalled how she gained membership in the Ladies Auxiliary through her brother, Ben Olson Jr., a Navy Seabee who did tours of duty in Okinawa and Taiwan before coming home in the 1940s. “I’ve seen some terrific changes here over the years, and I’ve loved it,” Pryor said. “The Legion is my home away from home.”

Horse Liniment Erases Pain

HIALEAH, FL – An ingredient often used to treat inflammation in racehorse legs is now back on the market in its original doctor recommended clinical strength formula. According to a national drug survey, the formula at one time became so popular that it rose to the top of pharmacy sales for topical pain relievers. But the company marketing the product at the time changed the formula and sales plummeted. One of the inventors of the original formula has brought it back under the trade name ARTH ARREST and

says it can relieve pain for millions. ARTH ARREST works by a dual mechanism whereby one ingredient relieves pain immediately, while a second ingredient seeks out and destroys the pain messenger signal before it can be sent to the brain. Considered a medical miracle by some, ARTH ARREST is useful in the treatment of a variety of painful disorders. ARTH ARREST is available without a prescription or call 877-581-1502. Now at: 971422

MG athletes turn out for track


MARYSVILLE — The spring showers may come down in torrents, but that doesn’t stop Marysville Getchell’s track and field team from turning out and competing. Entering its third season in athletics, MG’s track team will welcome back a host of returning talent. “We’re very senior heavy,” MG head track and field coach Kim Edens said. But MG’s track and field team’s strength also lies in its size. Since it’s opening, MG has had no trouble bringing out potential athletes to compete. “We have always been big in numbers, especially when you have a new program,” Edens said. “We have had close to 100 players that have come out.” Despite being such a new program, Edens has seen no real problems obstructing the team this season. Though the team is just a few years old, the Chargers have improved each season, especially last season. “Last year, we took a good group to State, whereas the first year, we only took one,” Edens said. “I’m looking forward to seeing if we can improve upon that.” Improvement in general is what

Edens is looking forward to most this season. “We train very hard,” Edens said. “We can take kids that have hardly any experience, and by the end of the season, they are improving by seconds in the runs, or by feet in shotput or discus.” Edens said MG’s strongest events last year were the throws, jumps and relays. “In the end, when we went to State, we had an exceptional thrower,” she said about 2013 graduate Alfredo Diaz. “Shotput and discus were a strong suit.” In the jumps, Kaitlyn McCormick and Zander Seymer made it to State. In the relays, Eugene Marcus, Antonio Larson, Jesse Pavilando and Daniel McNabb for the 4x400 boys relay team, and Katie Cole, Kyrin Jarvis, Makenzie Terrell and Kelsee Crenshaw for the 4x200 girls relay team, made it to State as well. Last season at State, McCormick placed seventh and some other MG athletes medaled according to Edens. The relay teams weren’t able to make it in the finals, but they still performed well. “It’s not like we ran poorly,” Edens said. “It’s just really good competition.” MG competing with other challenging schools at State during the last season will benefit the Chargers’ current season.

shown results. “We now get athletes that now expect to get to State,” she said. “There’s only one option, and that’s to get there.” On top of experience and size,

MG also has youth and potential on its side. “This year’s freshmen class is huge,” Edens said. “We’ve got some young kids and I’m excited to see what they can bring.”

Rome, Torie conduct throwing clinic BY BRANDON ADAM

Former Olympic thrower Jarred Rome, in back, uses Mike Torie as a visual aid to show proper form while throwing the discus.

MARYSVILLE — Former Olympic thrower Jarred Rome conducted his third throwing clinic at MarysvillePilchuck High School on March 15, and he was pleased with the turnout, noting that the popularity of clinic has increased each year since its inception. “It’s gone from 30 in the first year to 60 last year, and 75 this year,” Rome said. “So it’s definitely been growing.” The clinic aimed to teach and improve the technique of various track and field throws. “This is our third annual camp, so it’s been kind of in the process for over 10 years,” Rome said. “Since 2004, I wanted to put on a camp here.” Rome graduated from M-P in 1995. He has competed as a professional thrower for more than 21 years, specializing in the discus. “I just want to make this a place where people can get Olympic-level coaching,” Rome said. During his career, Rome has competed in the 2004 and 2012 Summer

Olympics, and he was a two-time National Champion, in 2004 and 2011. “I got together with Randy Davis, the head coach here, and said, ‘Hey, let’s start doing something,’” Rome said. “’Let’s see if we can find some other Olympians in the area, and teach them what I have learned.’” The clinic welcomed back former Olympic two-time Gold Medalist javelin thrower Duncan Atwood, who was there last year. The camp’s most recent addition was Mike Torie, who assisted Rome in the discus throw during the clinic. “It’s pretty cool, and I will say it’s really humbling,” Torie said. “I wasn’t the best thrower at my school at the time.” Torie hopes to use his personal story as an Olympian-in-the-making as an inspiration for other throwers. Torie is currently being trained under Rome, and plans on competing in the 2016 Summer Olympics. “I’m just excited to be here, and to tell the kids who maybe think they aren’t good, to keep working,” Torie said. “When you have adversity,

there is opportunity to grow and get stronger.” Torie attended and graduated from Lakewood High School in 2004, but it was at M-P where he had a defining moment in his throwing career. “This is where it started for me,” he said. “My first big meet in high school, when I was a senior, was at the Tomahawk Classic.” Torie was also impressed with the amount of students that showed up. “I’m impressed with the turnout, especially for track and field,” he said. “You don’t hear a whole lot about track and field, so to have this kind of a turnout is really good.” As the clinic continues to develop, Rome plans on expanding the clinic by adding new features in the future. “My goal is to bring other events here,” Rome said. “Next year I’m going to bring in events other than throws, and make it a track and field camp.” Rome is looking to implement jumps and runs in the clinic’s future.

Gentry spends birthday collecting for food bank BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — Last year, Fallyn Gentry decided to celebrate her 10th birthday by asking her family and friends to give gifts to those facing greater needs then herself, and her birthday party at the Marysville Community Food Bank generated 459 pounds of food and an estimated $100 in cash for the local nonprofit charity. As Fallyn’s March 15 birthday rolled around again this year, this time on

a Saturday, she decided to support the Food Bank by teaming up with the Dues Produce Barn in Marysville, where she collected food and money during its “Spring Fling” that day. For her 11th birthday, Fallyn collected 209 pounds of food and $470 in cash donations, although her mom, Rhesa Gentry, pointed out that this was her daughter’s second donation drive for the Food Bank at Dues, since Fallyn collected 300 pounds of food and 37 toys at the local produce barn during the winter holi-

days last year. “She’s always wanted to help others,” Rhesa Gentry said of Fallyn. “She doesn’t like being hungry, and she knows that others are going without food, so she thinks that’s wrong.” Fallyn is already planning another food drive for the coming months, and expects to return to the Dues Produce Barn in March of 2015 for her 12th birthday. “By now, we feel like members of the family of volunteers at the Marysville Community Food Bank,”

MARYSVILLE — For the fourth year in a row, young people from throughout Snohomish County will be able to take part in the local community’s free Prom Dress Exchange & Fashion Show — which will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 22, at 1050 State Ave. in Marysville this year — so that girls from Marysville, Arlington and beyond will be able to dress fashionably for all the formal social events coming up this spring and summer. “This event has been a huge success, especially with its venue change last year, when more than a hundred young ladies participated in finding their prom and party dresses,” said Renae James, one of the event’s many coordinators, as she reiterated that the

Prom Dress Exchange & Fashion Show are free and open to all of Snohomish County and its surrounding areas. “We want every girl to have that special memory of having attended her prom feeling like a princess in a beautiful dress. We currently have more than 330 dresses, with more still coming in, and they’re all free.” James explained that the girls who attend will not be asked to prove their levels of need, or that they’re from any particular school or city. While there’s no charge to attend the fashion show from 11 a.m. to noon, or to obtain a dress at the exchange from noon to 2 p.m., a suggested donation of $10 each from girls who do find dresses would be greatly appreciated. To learn more, log onto www.facebook. com/PromExchange.




Rhesa Gentry said. “We just wish we had more time to spend helping out there, but we still do so whenever our schedules allow us. Fallyn really wants to get in there and help out with all the work that goes into supporting the families in need in our community.” Rhesa Gentry was especially effusive in thanking the Dues Produce Barn, and Becky Due in particular, for all their assistance and encouragement. “Hopefully, Fallyn’s next drive at Dues will be loaded with local vegetables, so that those in need can have some fresh veggies,” Rhesa Gentry said. “Fallyn has always talked about wanting to help people of the world in any way she can. She has a big heart, and seems to think about others much more than most people. Her dad and I are very proud that Fallyn puts the needs of others before herself. I know neither of us were doing this kind of community service at her age. We will continue to encourage her to do great things.”

City employee receives Dare to Soar Award

MARYSVILLE — Mayor Jon Nehring recently presented a city employee with a “Dare to Soar” Innovative Service Award for efforts that led to significant energy cost savings at the Marysville Waste Water Treatment Plant. Waste Water Treatment Plant lead worker and 16-year employee Jeff Cobb applied with Snohomish County PUD in early 2013 through an Energy Efficiency Rebate Incentive Program that would generate energy cost savings by installing dissolved oxygen probes in the plant’s completemix aerated cells at the treatment plant. Aerators keep the pond aer-

obic, with a strong dissolved oxygen content to maintain healthy BOD breakdown, which in turn eliminates odor. That process has been in place at the plant for years, and now it’s saving money with the new probes. The reduction in power usage that has resulted from these probes is so impressive that the PUD will rebate the city for the entire cost of purchasing the probes, according to Nehring. PUD has projected the power savings costs to be about $60,000 per year. “This type of innovative thinking and ingenuity deserves recognition due to the significance of the cost

savings realized by the city,” Nehring said, before presenting Cobb the award. The Dare to Soar Awards acknowledge exceptional employee performance and innovative ways of conducting the public’s business that yield cost savings in city budgets, improve service delivery, increase productivity, and are beneficial to citizens overall. The city encourages employees to come up with ideas for ways to cut down costs in their departments. Cobb was nominated by Public Works Superintendent Doug Byde, who ran the Waste Water Treatment Plant for several years previously.

Man killed in lawnmower accident identified TULALIP — The man whose body was found at the Battle Creek Golf Course on Friday, March 14, has been identified as 58-year-old Snohomish resident James Pulliam. Pulliam had worked as the head golf professional and a member of the grounds crew at the Battle Creek Golf Course, and according to the Snohomish County Sheriff ’s Office, he was working there when a lawnmower apparently flipped over on top of him.

He died at the scene and his death was reported to 911 at 1:20 p.m. that Friday, after his body was found on the 13th fairway of the golf course, and both the Snohomish County Sheriff ’s Office and Marysville Fire Department were called out to the scene. Although Pulliam’s death is not believed to be suspicious, the state Department of Labor and Industries is conducting its standard investigation for workplace fatalities.

Suspect arrested in Marysville robbery MARYSVILLE — Marysville Police detectives, with the assistance of the Department of Homeland Security and the Renton Police Department, arrested a 27-year-old Renton man in connection with a robbery that occurred in Marysville on Feb. 6. During the robbery, the suspect pointed a handgun

at the occupants of a car, and identified himself as a law enforcement officer to gain compliance from the victims. The suspect had been working for a local bail bonding company, and was trying to locate a subject who had skipped out on his bail. The suspect had placed a cell phone call to a female acquaintance of the

bail-jumper he was looking for. This woman was also one of the subjects who were coming to Marysville to buy the EBT card of the robbery victims. Through cell phone call logs, a Marysville Police crime analyst was able to obtain the identity of the robbery suspect. The suspect matched, very closely, the composite sketch that

Arlington Drug Awareness Coalition offers a way ‘Out of the Shadows’

was drawn based on information provided by the robbery victims. The suspect was arrested as he was driving away from his Renton residence. When interviewed by detectives, he denied taking any money from the Marysville victims. He was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on three counts of first degree robbery.

ARLINGTON — The newly formed Arlington Drug Awareness Coalition is sponsoring a community-wide drug and alcohol awareness event, “Out of the Shadows,” on Wednesday, March 26, at 6 p.m. in the Byrnes Performing Arts Center. The group encourages all community members, parents and young people to attend this event, and will provide childcare for younger children through the National Honor Society. The presentation will open with personal stories about young people from Arlington who have struggled with addiction, followed with information about which drugs are being abused in this area, what addiction looks like and how community members can fight back while still supporting those who are struggling. The presenters will include school administrators, law enforcement personnel, healthcare representatives and recovery specialists.

Arlington Police discover illegal drugs ARLINGTON — At approximately 6 a.m. on Friday, March 14, Arlington Police served a search warrant on a single family residence in the 20800 block of 66th Avenue NE in Arlington. The search warrant was initially triggered by the theft of an iPad from the AT&T Wireless store in Arlington on Thursday, March 13, at approximately 7:30 p.m. The stolen iPad had been turned on at approximately 9:30 p.m., which then sent an alert to AT&T security, providing the iPad’s current location. AT&T security staff then contacted Arlington Police with the information. In the course of serving the search warrant, officers discovered and removed an undisclosed quantity of methamphetamine, scales, an undisclosed amount of cash and drug paraphernalia. No arrests have been made, although the investigation is ongoing.

NOTICE Washington State law requires wood sellers to provide an invoice (receipt) that shows the s e l l e r ’s a n d b u y e r ’s name and address and the date delivered. The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the seller’s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord. Estimate a c o r d by v i s u a l i z i n g a four-foot by eight-foot space filled with wood to a height of four feet. Most long bed pickup trucks have beds that are close to the four-foot by 8-foot dimension. To m a k e a f i r e w o o d complaint, call 360-9021857. WeightsMeasures/Fire woodinformation.aspx

Name: Samantha Animal ID: 22023056 Species: Cat Breed: Domestic Shorthair/Mix Age: 12 years 1 month 7 days Sex: Female Size: Medium Color: Brown/Black Spayed/Neutered: Yes Declawed: No Housetrained: Yes Samantha may be 12 years old but don't let that fool you. She can be kittenish at times, with toy mice and balls. She even enjoys a scratch post or two. She also likes to hang out in the window area watching the world go by.

Name: Sochie Animal ID: 22152900 Species: Dog Breed: Chow Chow/Purebred Age: 10 years Sex: Female Size: Large Color: Chocolate Spayed/Neutered: Yes Declawed: No Housetrained: Unknown

Sochie is a very sweet ol'gal who is looking to spend the rest of her years in a home that appreciates her! She is deaf so can get startled when she is woken up. Due to the deafness she'd prefer to be in a home without kids but is great with other dogs and cats. If you want a teddy bear to hang out with this is the girl for you! Medical info: Sochi came to the shelter severely matted, with a bad ear infection and bad dental disease. Her thyroid levels are borderline low/normal. She has been shaved, her ears are being treated, and she had a dental with multiple extractions; she also had a benign eyelid tumor removed. Your veterinarian will remove the eyelid sutures and recheck Sochi's ears around 3/23-3/26.

All animals adopted from EAS are neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas. All cats are tested for FeLV.

Pitts sworn in as Marysville Police officer

MARYSVILLE — Incoming Marysville Police Officer Kelly Pitts proved to be a man of few words during his swearing-in ceremony on Monday, March 17, saying only, “It’s an honor to be here,” but his fellow Marysville Police officers had plenty to say about the law enforcement veteran who came to the Marysville Police Department through a lateral entry from the Monroe Police Department. “The more I got to know Kelly, the more I became impressed with him as a professional,” Marysville Police Chief Rick Smith said. “He’s built up a ton of training and experience that we now get to benefit from.” While Smith and Marysville Police Lt. Mark Thomas welcomed Pitts, his wife Shawna, and their children, Ciera and Connor, Smith told Pitts that his fellow Marysville Police officers and the city officials at that evening’s City Council meeting represented the incoming officer’s “Marysville family,” whom Smith urged Pitts to call upon if ever the need were to arise. Thomas recited a laundry list of Pitts’ accomplishments, dating back even before he began looking into police work in 1995, in his former hometown of Phoenix, Ariz. “Kelly attended the University of Arizona in Tucson, where he obtained his bachelor of science degree in ecology and evolutionary biology, which makes me wonder if he’s here to work with us or study us,” Thomas laughed, before noting that Pitts’ search for law enforcement jobs continued in 1996, after his wife’s job took them to Bothell, then to Monroe. Pitts began with the Monroe Police Department as a reserve officer in 1997, before testing for and being hired onto a full-time position on the department in 1998. “Kelly had always been fond of shooting, so since his coworker was a firearms instructor, he got Kelly involved in firearms instruction too,” Thomas said. “Kelly began volunteering his time at the

Washington State Criminal Justice Training Center, in its firearms program, and as the program expanded, Kelly became an adjunct instructor.” Pitts ultimately completed a three-year contract, through the Monroe Police Department, as a full-time lead firearms instruc-

tor at the Criminal Justice Training Center, then went on to become an instructor in defensive tactics, OC and Taser. Pitts also holds the titles of certified armorer for Colt, Beretta, Benelli and Glock, as well as a certified Simunition instructor. He’s even served as

assistant team leader for the South Snohomish County SWAT Team and a narcotics K-9 handler for the Monroe Police Department. “Kelly’s biography speaks volumes about his experience, training and professionalism, as well as his impressive

skill sets as a law enforcement officer,” Thomas said. “The Marysville Police Department is lucky to have him, and his qualifications also speak volumes about Marysville’s community, city government and police department, that we’re able to draw someone with his background to us.”

Dues Produce Barn debuts ‘Spring Fling’

MARYSVILLE — Dues Produce Barn in Marysville invited the surrounding community to its first “Spring Fling” on Saturday, March 15, drawing more than 20 vendors and close to 200 attendees within its first two hours, according to Becky Due. “It’s great to see so many local folks in one place,” Due said. “We managed to pack 21 vendors inside the barn, with two more camped outside our front

entrance.” While Kristina Hiatt, of Kris’ Crafty Pet Creations of Marysville, used her sewing machine to embroider names on pet collars, fellow Marysville resident Tracy Adams offered shoppers free samples of the pico de gallo and salsa she makes for Tracy’s Salsa Fix. “I’ve been doing this for the past six months, since my three grandkids came to live with me,” said Adams, as one of her grandkids, Mallary Walker, snacked happily on salsa and chips.

Loops Dujour’s Christina Smith artfully arranges her tasty treats at Dues Produce Barn’s ‘Spring Fling’ on March 15.

“I needed a way to raise cash while staying at home, and I’d lived in Mexico, in Cabo San Lucas, so this seemed like a natural fit.” All of Adams’ jars of salsa that day had been made fresh the night before, and she estimated that they’d last about seven months, but warned customers that, the longer they waited to eat the salsa, the spicier it would become. Julie Davis served up samples of her own sirloin tip chuck roast, from Arlington’s Clear Valley Farm, that she’d cooked with onion, and extolled the virtues of grass-fed Lowline Angus beef, which she’s partnered with the Dues to provide on a weekly preorder basis at their produce farm. “Julie’s a great grower,” Due said, noting that Clear Valley Farm also provides fresh produce. “I love to hear about folks in the community growing more produce. We stock ours by freshness, not by volume. You won’t find any produce here that’s a day old.” Christina Smith’s Loops Dujour reflects her philosophy that having a healthy diet doesn’t mean settling for less tasty foods. “Food is medicine,” Smith said, as she spooned out samples of her carrot cake, pumpkin butter and caramel apple-flavored varieties of

When you can get food that’s organically grown, with healthy ingredients, it can become a way of life.” On the other end of the spectrum was Stacey Kallinen, whose Humble Pie Catering serves Marysville, Lake Stevens and beyond, and whose own table at the “Spring Fling,” placed right next to Smith’s, tempted browsers with decidedly less health-minded fare. “I’ve got not only Rice Krispies bars, but also Trix bars,” said Kallinen, who had to use tongs to pull the sticky and sugary cereal-based treats apart from each other. “My house salad dressing has

a touch of chipotle, and my mac and cheese has about $35 worth of cheeses, including extra sharp cheddar and parmesan.” “It’s just been awesome and unbelievable how many people have turned out for this,” said Due, who staged the produce barn’s first holiday festival this past winter, after opening in the Dues’ current Marysville location last summer. “Starting this May, I’ll be opening the barn to 10 vendors each weekend, to give them more space to display their wares.” Indeed, Due has a whole calendar of events coming up this year, from a car show in support of Relay

For Life to a tie-in to the Strawberry Festival, followed by the barn’s first fall festival and second winter holiday festival. “We’re so excited that the local community has opened its arms to us,” said Due, who welcomed followers on Facebook at www.facebook. com/DuesProduceBarn. In the meantime, Dues Produce Barn is inviting horticulturists and those looking for the ideal Mother’s Day gift to check out its “May Day Madness” on Saturday, May 3, starting at 10 a.m. and offering hanging baskets, geraniums, basket-stuffers, veggie starts, succulents and more.
