ARLINGTON — Although they weren’t able to move past the Pacific Northwest District Championships in Portland, Ore., on Friday, April 11, the Arlington High School NeoBots FIRST Robotics Team 2903 ultimately achieved its most successful season in its six years of competing against other schools in the FIRST Robotics Competition. Not only did an alliance of Arlington, Lynnwood and Ballard school teams win the Mount Vernon District Tournament, but the Arlington team won the Inspiration in Engineering Award in the Shorewood District, for the AHS students’ work in promoting engineering to younger students in the community, through their past two years of summer camps for elementary and middle school students so that those younger students can learn more about robotics. AHS NeoBots Team President Caroline Vogl was nominated for the Dean’s List Award, for her leadership and her role in getting information about the team out to the public online, while Mark Ehrhardt, the technology director for the Arlington School District, was nominated for a top mentor award due to the SEE AHS, PAGE 2

Community meets to discuss fallout of Oso slide BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

SMOKEY POINT — Snohomish County and Washington State Department of Transportation officials answered questions and responded to the concerns of citizens during a Wednesday, April 16, community meeting on how their agencies plan to deal with the wake of the Oso mudslide. WSDOT Chief Construction Engineer Linea Laird introduced Snohomish County Public Works

Director Steve Thomsen, the latter of whom explained how recovery crews were focusing more on the east side of the slide, and working their way up from the south toward the northern end, thanks in no small part to the temporary berms put in place by the Army Corps of Engineers a few days before which allowed searchers to go over terrain that had been too flooded to enter before.

many hours he’s spent on evenings and weekends to help the team succeed. Ehrhardt was quick to share credit with a number of other adult mentors, from businesses throughout the area, who have dedicated their time to the team as well. “We didn’t win anything at the Pacific Northwest District Championships, but we learned a lot from all of these high caliber teams in one place,” Vogl said of the event, which pitted the 34 members of the AHS NeoBots against 64 other school teams from throughout the region. “We have a number of new ideas on how to rearrange our club structure, and what we should do at competitions.” This year’s challenge for all the robotics teams was called “Aerial Assist,” and tasked each team with maneuvering a 24-inch exercise ball from one end of the field to the other, at which point the team needed to achieve either the high goal of seven feet off the ground, or the low goal of seven inches off the ground. The game was further complicated by the awarding of bonus points when multiple robots possessed the ball before it was scored, or when robots launched the ball over a truss that was suspended six feet above the middle of the field. AHS junior Tyler Sudderth, a firstyear member of the team, agreed with freshman teammate Brandon Kovach that the “defendy stick” apparatus proved problematic in its operations, but Sudderth touted the NeoBots robot’s ability to block the high goal in its autonomous mode, which set it apart from any of the other robots that he observed during the competitions. Vogl added that another unique feature of the NeoBots’ robot was

Administrator Lorena Eng elaborated on the traffic situation, with Harrison acknowledging that Darrington needs at least some form of limited access as soon as possible, while Eng warned that progress toward a full reopening of State Route 530 would be slow-going. One short-term solution, that Harrison alluded to, is a plan to provide one-lane traffic, flowing in one direction at a time and alternating directions every half-hour, during daylight hours for local traffic access, but as he admitted, “We’re still nailing down the details.” Eng anticipates that simply sifting through the debris field could last one to three more months, simply because of the human remains that are still expected to be found within the slide itself, “which we want to treat respectfully.” As such, she hopes to see a minimum of one-lane traffic restored on State Route 530 by this fall. “If it takes until the fall, Darrington is not going to survive,” area resident Dave McGlothern said. “That mill is vital, and truckers can’t be going the long way around for that long.” The questions came from the crowd before the speakers had even finished their prepared remarks, as Thomsen reassured attendees that an overwhelming response from the community has left Darrington with no shortage of food. Harrison freely conceded that they still

We came prepared to compete, but we didn’t expect to win. That attitude kept the overall attitude of our team positive at the competitions, which made competing easier. We were more concerned with having fun and trying, and not just winning, which kept our stress levels down.” AHS junior Geoffrey Root has also served on the NeoBots team for the past three years, and this year offered what he deemed some vitally important lessons. “We learned that we need a better organization structure for future years,” Root said. “We want to improve

our scouting at competitions by using new software, and scout for what teams do for outreach awards, not just scouting for robot information.” Sudderth agreed with Root and Vogl that being able to watch other teams at competitions has been invaluable in providing examples of how the NeoBots can improve their own practices. In the end, Vogl believes the AHS NeoBots Robotics Team benefits not only its student members, but also the community as a whole. “Not only are students learning technical and job skills for their futures, but they’re also learning to be leaders and how to communicate, all while they’re actively carrying out a project, and not just sitting in a class-

room doing math problems,” Vogl said. “When making robots, there is no ‘C,’ really. Your robot either works or it doesn’t, and that’s like many situations in the real world.” Vogl added that robotics students develop a habit of giving back to the community through volunteer work.

need to work out how to provide local traffic access to those who own property in the slide area, but who don’t list those addresses on their IDs, as well as those who have been contracted to work on that property by the owners. Thomsen was met with objections from several owners of property in the slide zone when he predicted that the majority of the 5 million cubic yards of soil that had been displaced by the slide would not be removed. “The sheer volume is too much, and there’s no funding source,” Thomsen said. “This is the largest event Snohomish County has ever seen.” When homeowners pointed out that those with contaminated soil on their lands would be stuck without a way to use their property or sell it off, Laird hastened to note that these issues have barely even begun to be considered by the agencies involved since they’ve been so busy responding to the more immediate impacts of the slide. Given the similar slide that area experienced in 2006, questions were raised about whether homeowners who came to the area after 2006 were warned of the area’s history. Thomsen asserted that the county sent out notifications to its residents for a variety of potential hazards on their properties, from earthquakes to flooding. However, Davis Hargrave, a former resident of Steelhead Drive in Oso, reported a far different experience. “I was told nothing,” Hargrave said.

Walk MS raises $90K in Snohomish County BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

TULALIP — Nearly 600 walkers started and ended their course at the Tulalip Amphitheatre for this year’s Walk MS in Tulalip on Saturday, April 12, and while this represented a slightly smaller turnout than last year’s local event, event organizers still considered it a healthy show of support given the other worthy causes close to home that are calling for people’s time and commitment. “We understand the community is splitting its attention, with the recent tragedy in Oso,” said Sarah Chromy, communications manager for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Greater Northwest Chapter. “It’s still an impressive number for Snohomish County.” As of Tuesday, April 15, Chromy estimated that the Walk MS in Tulalip had generated nearly $90,000 for the National MS Society in Snohomish County, out of the $1.6 million in funds raised through this year’s Walk MS events throughout the Greater Northwest

Chapter. These numbers are actually up from last year’s. “The Lumpy Bruisers, with team captain Mitzi Ahles, did an amazing job of recruiting and fundraising this year,” Chromy said. “The Snohomish Goat Farmers, with team captain Ray Emery, led the way as our highest local fundraising team, with more than $16,000. Plus, they always bring out at least two goats to Walk MS, which is a sure crowd-pleaser for the children.” The Mel Walkers team, with joint captains Bruce and Melissa Groenewegen, ranked second in fundraising, with more than $15,000, while Elaine’s Power Walkers, with team captain Jeff Ponton, came in third with more than $4,000. “Elaine’s Power Walkers also brought tons of team spirit and balloons,” Chromy said. “The face painter was a big hit as well, painting everything from birds to tigers, and everything in between.” Chromy explained that

more than 77 cents of every dollar raised through Walk MS goes directly to improve the lives of people living with MS. Through its donors and fundraisers, the National MS Society is able to: ■ Fund cutting-edge research to stop MS, restore lost functions and end MS forever. ■ Drive change through advocacy. ■ Facilitate professional education. ■ Collaborate with MS organizations around the world. ■ Provide programs and services that help people with MS and their families move forward with their lives. “Last year, it was pouring rain out here, so everyone was happy to hang around after this year’s Walk MS to catch up with one another, have some lunch and soak up some sunshine,” Chromy said. “Walk MS connects those in our local communities to one another, as we rally together to raise funds and celebrate hope for a future free of multiple

action to end MS forever. There’s an incredible network of support, information and resources available, and Walk MS is the rallying

point that makes it all possible.” For more information, log onto www.nationalmssociety.org/Chapters/WAS.

A long look at natural disasters, great and small

ow unusual was the Oso mudslide? I tried to compare its effects with similar natural disasters in U.S. history but came up empty. There was the Wellington (Stevens Pass) snow avalanche in 1910 that killed 101 train passengers, but that wasn’t a mudslide. We’ve seen eruptions, floods, earthquakes, wildfires, tornadoes, hurricanes and drought, but nothing in the annals compares with this particular tragedy. The greater landslide near Hope, B.C., was a movement of rock layers, not soil and mud, and though it produced a debris field 265 feet deep, only four lives were lost. Mudslides seem to be a Pacific Northwest specialty. Think back a year or two to when a mudslide picked off homes on the east side of Whidbey Island. Then recall how often mudslides interrupt rail service between Seattle and Everett. But because of the greater loss of lives and habitations, this disaster can awaken a shared understanding of what makes some humans tick. I hope that we can learn from the tragedy because reaching to understand the why of what happened might lessen the feeling that we’re nothing more than hapless pawns at the mercy of nature. We’ll learn some things, but I doubt that they’ll be very effective for changing human behavior. Residents of every settlement

are ultimately responsible for their own safety, but safety isn’t the only reason for choosing a home site. Homes built on flat land, clear of tornados and fault zones, may be relatively safe — safe, boring, closed in by neighbors and empty of the natural beauty of wild places. Adventurers will always balance the riskiness of nature against the quiet joy of living in remote valleys, or on ridges, brinks and shores. They accept a measure of danger as a reasonable price to pay. To have a seascape in one’s front yard is a gamble with tsunamis. To swim beyond the reef is to enter the food chain. Some find it easy to live as herd-animals in apartment blocks while others find their peace where danger dwells. The border between may be marked by deer feasting on the roses and bears spooking the horses. Will the tragic Oso event send non-conformists scurrying to the safety of inner cities? Not a chance. We are what we are, and if we try to live contrary to what we are, at best we’ll be unfulfilled, at worst, miserable. Precipitation triggers mud slides.

Excess water lubricates interfaces between soil and rock layers, adding a dangerous burden of weight to soil clinging to steep slopes. When soil becomes super-saturated, it changes from solid to liquid and, with or without the other two factors, down it comes. With weather the culprit, it has long been thought that 100-year rains might trigger 100-year floods and slides. Though historical averages document the frequency of weather and climate events, we’re learning to not put too much trust in them. Recent data tells us that historically-defined 100-year events may happen closer to every 100 days nowadays. One-time mayor of New York City, Mario Cuomo, observed that his city had been experiencing 100-year floods every two years. Forecasters had traditionally worked with weather data averaged from the 1850s to the present. Records of old floods and hurricanes, droughts, blizzards, annual snow-pack and what have you were lumped to predict the frequency of major weather events. Those numbers don’t describe today’s reality. The new frequency of climateinduced losses shocked the insurance industry into attention. They dumped the old 100-year storm guesstimates and turned deaf ears to rants from climate-change deniers. Insurance bigwigs turned to real scientists’ real data and predictions because sticking with the

ancient averages would have put them out of business. Through thick and thin, the industry’s bean-counters have to muster more than a million dollars in premiums to cover every million dollars in claims. Now, with bigger and more frequent claims attacking the bottom line, they jack up premiums or simply cancel coverage where danger lurks. That won’t stop venturesome people from building in harm’s way and some of them just paid an awful price for doing so. It’s even possible that some survivors might opt to re-build in other hazardous areas, foregoing safety and costly insurance — if coverage is even offered. At this moment, millions are gambling against forces beyond their control by sailing, climbing, diving, spelunking and skiing down remote glaciers. To share space with wild creatures and forces of nature is to get high on reality, stirring something precious in the human spirit by communing with creation in all its frightening grandeur. We are saddened that so many paid the ultimate price for gambling with nature. We also know that a lot of good people accept the rewards of risk as so compelling that they’ll continue to join in the Great Gamble. It’s part of being human.

M-P Drama presents ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ MARYSVILLE — The Marysville-Pilchuck High School Drama Club is presenting the Broadway and off-Broadway hit musical “Little Shop of Horrors” in the M-PHS auditorium on the Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays of April 24, 25 and 26, as well as May 1, 2 and 3, at 7:30 p.m. The show centers around a poor young man named Seymour Krelbourn, who works at a run-down flower shop on Skid Row and obtains a mysterious alien plant. When he brings the plant to the store, everyone’s lives start changing for the better at first, until Seymour discovers that his plant has a demanding taste for a different kind of plant food, and that the plant can talk to him. Together, Seymour and the plant hatch a plan, which backfires badly for Seymour, and even worse for the audience. This show was written by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, the musical duo responsible for Disney’s “The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin” and “Beauty and the Beast.” Due to the nature of the show, it may not be suitable for smaller children, unlike the duo’s other works. The cast for this show offers

United Way donates $45,000 to help mudslide victims Donations will be used to send Darrington kids to camp, replace household items In a continuing effort to address the needs of families impacted by the State Route 530 flood and mudslide, United Way is partnering with two highly regarded local organizations. Up to $24,750 will help Camp Fire USA’s Snohomish County Council, to send 50 children from Darrington to Camp Killoqua this summer. Another $20,000 will help the North Sound Society of St. Vincent de Paul distribute full sets of new, prepackaged household items to people who lost their homes in the March 22 mudslide. “With this funding sup-

port, we can provide youth from Darrington a week away from the destruction, isolation and trauma they have been dealing with,” said David Surface, executive director of Camp Fire USA’s Snohomish County Council. “These kids deserve a break. They’ve been through so much.” Camp Fire is working with North Counties’ Family Services to identify potential participants for sessions in July or August. They will hire additional staff to meet increased demand. United Way’s contribution is expected to cover the costs for half of the children from

Darrington who might take part. St. Vincent de Paul has provided what they call a “House in a Box” to survivors of natural disasters around the country, particularly after the tornadoes in Oklahoma and Hurricane Sandy in the Northeast. “Although we have raised quite a bit of money for this program, we were $20,000 short of being able to provide our ‘House in a Box’ to families who will need to reestablish their homes,” said Jim Kehoe, chief executive of the North Sound Society of St. Vincent de Paul. “United Way is making it possible for us to supply the material goods a family will need, including basic bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen

items. Our goal is to relieve some of the stress these families are going through.” “Houses in a Box” are given to survivors regardless of whether they owned or rented their previous housing. St. Vincent de Paul waits until FEMA has processed each family’s assessment. That way, supplies are not deducted from any funding FEMA might contribute. Kehoe expects to dispense these items to 30-40 families within the next 60 days. United Way’s contribution will cover approximately 40 percent of the costs. “We are proud to be working with Camp Fire and St. Vincent de Paul, to help people begin the process of rebuilding their lives, physically and emotionally,”

“We are proud to be working with Camp Fire and St. Vincent de Paul, to help people begin the process of rebuilding their lives, physically and emotionally.” Dr. Dennis Smith, president and CEO, United Way of Snohomish County said Dr. Dennis G. Smith, president and CEO of United Way of Snohomish County. “This is going to be a marathon, not a sprint. In addition to addressing the immediate needs of survivors, we’re also focusing on the long-term. We will be helping the families and communities of Darrington, Oso and Arlington for years to come.” United Way has raised at least $1.54 million for its Disaster Recovery Fund,

and distributed more than $500,000 to families and communities affected by the mudslide. One hundred percent of all dollars raised will be used for the recovery effort. For more information on United Way’s Disaster Recovery Fund for Mudslide Relief, and updated details on how much has been raised and how the money has been distributed, visit www.uwsc.org/recoveryfund.php.

SBA offers disaster loans to those impacted by mudslide dences, while homeowners and renters may borrow up to $40,000 to replace their personal property,” Wynne said. “Businesses may borrow up to $2 million for any combination of property damage or economic injury.” Wynne noted that the $200,000 for homeowners would also cover the costs of relocation, if they chose not to rebuild in the same area. Wynne added that, while most area businesses would be unlikely to be eligible for business physical disaster loans, since none that he’s

aware of were located in the area of the slide, many small businesses and private nonprofits of various sizes would likely be eligible for the low-interest working capital loans called Economic Injury Disaster Loans,s “The Economic Injury Disaster Loans are to pay your employees, keep your doors open and keep the lights on during your recovery,” Wynne said. “The application filing deadline for physical damage loans is June 2 of this year, but for economic injuries, it’s Jan. 2, 2015, because a busi-

ness may not even realize that they’re losing income until they do their books later in the year. Especially considering how many small businesses are on the fine edge at the best of times, relying on their week-to-week revenues, a disaster like this can easily put any number of them over the brink.” Whether or not they intend

to apply for a loan, slideimpacted homeowners and renters who have not already registered with the Federal Emergency Management Agency should do so, either online at www.disasterassistance.gov or over the phone at 800-621-FEMA (3362).

Eagles earn victory over Mariner

BY BRANDON ADAM badam@arlingtontimes.com

ARLINGTON — The Arlington girls tennis team worked hard for their second victory of the season, against Mariner on April 15. After breaking their losing streak on April 14, defeating Monroe 5-2, the Eagles edged out another win against Mariner, 4-3, in a competitive contest. “It was an extremely tight match that could have gone either way,” Arlington head coach Jill Hatfield said. “In singles they were consistent, and in doubles they could hit nice angles.”

Overall, Arlington and Mariner won two singles matches each. Arlington’s Emily Tripp and Bella Tift won their matches in singles to help Arlington’s win. “They played consistently and steadily throughout their matches to help pull out their wins,” Hatfield said. Arlington’s Demi Cartwright lost the No. 1 singles to Mariner’s Angela Moniaga, 6-0 and 6-0. In the No. 2 singles, Tripp topped her opponent in two sets, defeating Mariner’s Phuong Van 6-0 and 6-3.

Pilchuck Composite races well BY HEIDI KLIPPERT hklippert@lwsd.wednet.edu

ARLINGTON — Mountain bikers from the Pilchuck Composite high school and middle school teams raced strong in their second race of the season on April 6 at the 360 Park in Gig Harbor. “The trail conditions were perfect,” Pilchuck Composite head coach Heidi Klippert said. “The five-mile laps of single track offered riders a mix of technical riding, sweet berms, and the opportunity to show a little style on table top jumps and drops.” For varsity girls racing three laps, Elle Lee, a junior at Skagit Valley Community College Running Start, podiumed with a secondplace finish. Her overall time spent on the 15-mile course was one hour and 25 minutes. In intermediate girls, Kayla Lampert, a senior at Arlington, placed fourth, racing 10 miles in two laps. The beginner girls podiumed in the second and third positions, with Kara Libra, a Lake Stevens sophomore taking second after a mechanical

Libra is in first place overall for the season. On the middle school team, Hallie Williams placed third. In the beginner boys category, Granite Falls freshman Brendan Onderbeke placed seventh out of 30, and Jesse Read, a Lakewood junior, placed 21st. Racing two

laps for intermediate boys were Sam Oakes, a Skagit Valley Community College Running Start junior placing 13th, and Glen Gamboa, an Arlington junior placing 20th out of 24. Holden Berg placed 29th for middle school boys. “It was fun to watch our kids take the jump line,” Pilchuck Composite assistant coach Gary Holboy said. The team placed sec-

ond in the day’s race and is fourth overall for the season. Racing to honor the families and rescue workers at Oso, the team wore Oso armbands and raised $400 at the race. Their fundraiser movie night is April 19 at the Lincoln Theatre in Mount Vernon, and their next race is April 27 at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

Cougars tee off against Wildcats BY BRANDON ADAM badam@marysvilleglobe.com

LAKEWOOD — Lakewood High School’s girls gold team started its season on April 14, as they hit the links against Archbishop Murphy at Battle Creek Golf Course. The Cougars fell just short of the win against Archbishop Murphy, losing 63-53. “They were a little more experienced,” Lakewood head coach Chris Walster said. “They had three players returning.” For all but one of Lakewood girls, it was their first varsity match. “For the first time out, it wasn’t that bad,” Walster said. “As a whole, we did fine.” Though many of the girls have had previous athletic experiences in other sports, many of them have not competed in the game of golf. “It’s a big thinking game. In golf you can’t over-power the game,” Walster said. “Hopefully, as we improve, that will be a strong suit for us.” The girls’ putting game needed some work, according to Walster. Walster felt if the girls worked on their putting, it would’ve lead to some extra points.

“People don’t spend as much time on putting as they do driving,” Walster said. Another unique aspect to the game of golf is the fact that there is no standardized field of play. No single golf course is the same. “We’re just worried about getting the ball off the tee,” Walster said, not worrying so much about the environmental impact of the game. Senior Hailey Duitsman is Lakewood’s only returning player. She was the highest scorer, scoring 18 points. Duitsman stood out last year, which was her first year of golf. “She was very successful for a first year,” Walster said. “She is very smart.” Walster’s long-term goal of the season is to have his golf team compete in districts. “They are all working to be in the top 17 at districts,” Walster said. “We’re hoping to just steadily improve with this group of rookie golfers so that when we get to leagues and districts in May we’ll be playing our best golf.” Lakewood played Cedarcrest on April 17, but the results were not available by press time.

final sets 5-7 and 6-3.

In singles, Arlington’s Brooker Blue was pitted against Mariner’s Perla Pineda, and lost 8-2. In doubles, Arlington’s Kaylee Wright and Delany Scott lost to Mariner’s

Jeizelle Suqeuerdez and Gabby Leyva, 8-2. As the season progresses, Hatfield has noticed the team’s gradual improvement in various aspects of the game. “The girls are working at each practice to improve their fundamentals and develop game strategy,” Hatfield said. “It has been rewarding as a coach to see their individual growth as the season progresses.” On April 17 Arlington

“It was an extremely tight match that could have gone either way.” Jill Hatfield Head Coach, AHS Tennis played Lynnwood, but the results were not available by press time. As of April 17, Arlington’s overall record was 2-5, and 2-3 in the league.

The graffiti paint-out, park beautification and landscaping projects will run from 10 a.m. on 1 p.m. on April 26. Volunteers for this community-wide graffiti paintout will get to send a message to graffiti vandals and taggers that graffiti won’t be tolerated in Marysville. Crews will meet at the Jennings Park Office to receive their painting materials and location assignments for “hot spots” and street-side fences where homeowners have been victimized. Robinson recommends wearing old clothes that you won’t mind getting messy, and signing up early to be assigned to a team. From 9 a.m. to noon that same Saturday, the Marysville City Hall parking

Last year, Marysville worked with residents in three neighborhoods to provide free pickups of unsightly accumulations of household trash, broken furniture and furnishings, tires, cardboard, wood and scrap lumber, concrete and other non-hazardous materials left at curbside for crews to collect. This year, city officials are turning their attention to homes with frontage or street addresses along Marysville’s three busiest and highly visible north-south roadways: State Avenue, 51st Avenue/ Shoultes Road and 67th Avenue. Door hangers will be distributed to more than 1,000 homes along these routes, a ticket to making neighborhoods along the roads cleaner and more attractive.

Arlington, Marysville host Easter egg hunts

While Marysville offers one Easter egg hunt on the morning of Saturday, April 19, Arlington will be hosting two Easter egg hunts that same day, during both the morning and the evening. Area families are invited to attend the city of Marysville Parks and Recreation Department’s free annual Easter egg hunt from 10-11 a.m. on April 19 at Jennings Memorial Park, located at 6915 Armar Rd. More than 10,000 plastic eggs, filled with candy and prizes, will be hidden in and around the Jennings Memorial Park Rotary Ranch, for children aged 8 years and younger to find. There will be a limit of eight eggs per child. This year’s event is also set to

include a kids’ craft fair. Participants are being asked to bring a canned food item to donate to the Marysville Community Food Bank. Additional parking will be available at the nearby Marysville Middle School parking lot, located at 4923 67th St. NE. The Marysville Parks and Recreation Easter egg hunt is sponsored by Steve Fulton State Farm Insurance, the Marysville Noon Rotary Club and Grandview Village. For more information, call the Marysville Parks Office at 360-363-8400.

areas on the south end of the Arlington Municipal Airport. Children aged 12 years and younger are invited to gather the thousands of plastic eggs that will litter the fields. The Easter Bunny is also expected to attend this event, so families should bring their cameras for photos. If you have attended this event in the past, you might notice that the gathering area is a bit different this year, as event organizers seek to accommodate recent construction. This event is sponsored by the Cascade Valley Hospital & Clinics, while volunteers from Cascade Valley Hospital, the Arlington United Church, Youth Dynamics, the Arlington Arts Council and the Arlington Fire Department will be found on site, helping out during the day. The egg-gathering starts promptly at 11 a.m., so make sure you arrive on time and bring a basket. Enter the Arlington Airport property from 172nd Street onto 51st Avenue, at the traffic light. Parking is available in the fields. Arlington’s third annual Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt will cover the Haller Middle School stadium with thousands of plastic eggs on the evening of April 19, after the morning Easter egg hunts in Arlington and Marysville that same day. The gates are set to open at 7 p.m., and at 7:30 p.m., attendees 5 years old and younger will be released onto the field for a “pre-

Human trafficking forum highlights dangers

For all of your online news, go to www.arlingtontimes.com and www.marysvilleglobe.com

BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

Laurie Jean Cadwallader

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Chapter of Soroptimist International offered the local community an eye-opening education on the world of human trafficking on Tuesday, April 15, from the perspectives of three people who deal most often with its victims. Snohomish County Sheriff ’s Detective Peter Teske is part of a special investigations unit whose sole focus is on sex trafficking, and he hammered home to his audience in the Marysville-Pilchuck High School Auditorium that evening that human trafficking, or sex trafficking, is more of a local issue than they might realize. “The average age that children are recruited into sex trafficking is 12-14 years,” Teske said. “Many of us still have the idea that they’re shipped into or out of this country, or that they’re abducted in windowless white vans. We have between 100,000 to 300,000 juveniles who are trafficked, right here in Snohomish County, each year.” Julio Cortes, community relations and legislative coordinator for Cocoon House, noted that many of the homeless or otherwise at-risk youth that his organization serves have been sexually exploited, which

It’s important to give kids an outlet when they’re in a crisis. We want young people to know that we have these resources available to them.” Paula Newman-Skomski, a forensic nurse examiner with the Providence Intervention Center for Assault and Abuse, joined Teske in advising parents to keep a watchful eye on their children’s activities, both online and in the real world,

to help ensure their safety from sexual predators. “I’m honest with my children about sex, about sexual behavior and about sexual boundaries, in ways that are appropriate for their age and development levels,” Newman-Skomski said. “And I always know where they are and who they’re with.” “Too many parents are at the beck and call of their children, rather than the other way around,” Teske said. “If my kids are going to be accessing anything on the Internet, on any device, it’s going to be in a public area, and not behind closed doors. Also, with the way girls are socialized, they all too often feel an inability to tell people who are creeping them out to go away. They

need to know that it’s okay, in a public place, to say, ‘Leave me alone.’” Marysville Soroptimist Board member Elaine Hanson became a fighter to end the teen sex trade after she and other Soroptimist members attended a Northwest Coalition Against Trafficking Conference in Portland in 2011, which she described as a “shocking eye-opener. I knew that, if I didn’t know anything about this kind of activity, then many others in Marysville didn’t either.” The human sex trafficking issue has become a key initiative of Soroptimist International, and the Marysville Chapter has hosted a public event each year since the Portland conference.

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.

Post Middle School students make mandalas ARLINGTON — Taking advantage of the sunshine on Wednesday, April 9, Post Middle School students spent time creating unique mandalas on the sidewalk in front of their school, as one of their activities to help students and teachers focus on being a community and working together. “The sidewalk is covered with them, and it looks beautiful,” said Andrea Conley, public information coordina-

tor for the Arlington School District. Measured, crossing diagonal lines were drawn ahead of time, then small groups of students used colored sidewalk chalk to develop their designs. Each pattern was started at the center, and the kids added to the pattern on the outside of the previous pattern. They collaborated on what they wanted to add, and then just started coloring.

“This is just one of the activities to encourage Post Middle School students during the difficult time following the Oso mudslide,” Conley said. “They have also written letters of thanks and encouragement to the relief workers and impacted families. Other schools in the Arlington district have been involved in fundraising, wearing colors of solidarity and making signs as well.”

Recreational Garden Group moves meeting locations ARLINGTON — The Arlington Recreational Garden Group has had to find alternate quarters for its next two Saturday meetings, due to ongoing Oso mudslide recovery efforts. The group’s April 26 presentation and discussion on natural lawn care will be conducted at the Arlington United Church, located at 338 N. MacLeod Ave., in the large room one floor below the sanctuary, from 10 a.m. to noon. The entry door to this room is on the side of the building on Fourth Street, across from the Masonic Lodge. The cost is $4 for first-time attendees and $1 for returning attendees. The group is saving up these funds and working

toward officially forming as a garden club. The location of the May 24 meeting on composting, cool bugs and surface water management has also been moved. This program will take place in the community room adjacent to the Arlington Boys and Girls Club, located at 18513 59th Ave. NE in Arlington. Both of these classes are jointly sponsored by the Snohomish Conservation District, Snohomish County Public Works’ Surface Water Management Division and the WSU Snohomish County Extension Master Gardeners. For more information, call Master Gardener Bea Randall at 360-435-3892.

Arlington marks Arbor Day with tree planting BY KIRK BOXLEITNER kboxleitner@marysvilleglobe.com

ARLINGTON — Arlington celebrated its 13th year of receiving Tree City Awards during its Arbor Day tree-planting at the Country Charm Park and Conservation Area on Saturday, April 12. City of Arlington Natural Resources Manager Bill Blake estimated that 40 volunteers from the surrounding community turned out to plant 222 native trees, mostly Sitka spruce and Western red cedar, over the course of roughly two hours that morning. “The city purchased the trees from the Snohomish Conservation District as seedlings two years ago, and grew them larger in pots,” Blake said. “The day’s sunshine and the sandy loam of the farming soils made it easy to dig in, but the planting still had its challenges, including the poky branches on the Sitka spruce, and the sun in your eyes after six months of cloudy skies.”

Blake explained that this day’s plantings completed the plantings around all 26 of the Country Charm Park and Conservation Area’s camp sites. While its turnout was a bit less than previous such plantings at Country Charm, Blake saw that as a natural consequence of the number of people still working on Oso mudslide relief efforts. “Arlington continues to meet the requirements of a Tree City, year after year, since first qualifying,” said Blake, who listed those qualifications as maintaining an active tree board and spending at least $2 per capita, or $36,000 per year, on tree-related activities. “The educational booth by Sound Salmon Solutions gave not only examples of how a landowner can work with SSS on implementing best management practices on lands that can benefit salmon and aid in the recovery of Endangered Species Act-listed species, but also examples of how native trees and shrubs can

be used in a number of ways in modern life, similar to the ways they were used for centuries by the local Native American tribes.” While Sound Salmon Solutions brought the educational booth, shovels and gloves, the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians supplied a tree body oil workshop and mowed the center area for tents. Roger and Hank Graafstra even prepared the planting areas in between the camp sites, while the city itself provided the trees, plant protectors, planting brochures, and both snacks and children’s activities for the volunteers. Blake and city of Arlington Recreation Manager Sarah Lopez credited the Stillaguamish Tribe and the Arney Farm with donating the incense cedar and Oso berry trees that were planted in tribute to those who were impacted by the Oso mudslide, complete with a yellow ribbon tied around the incense cedar. “Because we have a local

berry named Oso berry, we thought it would be fitting to plant it at the entryway to the campground in memoriam,” Blake said. “We planted the trees at 10:47 a.m., exactly three weeks from when the slide occurred, and had a brief moment to remember those who were lost and most affected. The people of the Steelhead Drive neighborhood lived there to be close to nature and the river. The Country Charm Park and Conservation Area is located on that same river, and provides an opportunity for people who seek to experience the natural world to get out and enjoy it.” Blake elaborated that the ultimate goal is to include a small plaque, with the name of the plant and a reference to both the slide and the year 2014. “The trees provide shade, which will cool the water and provide a nice place to rest on a warm day,” Blake said. “They also stabilize the soils, to prevent erosion along the hillsides and stream banks, and take up

they can continue to watch grow over time,” Blake said. “There is nothing better, after 20-plus years of doing this, than hearing from a 30-year-old that they helped plant trees with me when they were in grade school. They will still be telling their kids about planting those trees when they are my age.”
