OSO — While many of the businesses in Oso are no strangers to surmounting obstacles presented by surrounding environmental conditions, from floods to the area’s previous slide within the past decade, the March 22 slide across State Route 530 has them in a bind the likes of which they’ve never dealt with before. Carla Hall and her son Aaron have lived in Oso, right at 21308 State Route 530, for the past 11 years, and operated Fruitful Farm next door to their home for the past seven of those years. The slide in 2006 presented few difficulties that they were aware of at the time, while the flood in 2010 required a prompt response, but receded almost as quickly as it had come. “The water went up and down on the same day,” said Aaron Hall, manager of Fruitful Farm. “Nobody expected it to be that fast.” While the Halls spent the day sandbagging their property, and received aid in moving their feed from the basement to make sure it stayed dry, the 2010 flood’s impacts were relatively easy to mitigate when compared to the March 22 slide, which has hit their liveliSEE OSO, PAGE 2

Slide site work shifts from active to passive search operations BY KIRK BOXLEITNER








Vol. 124, No. 41


EVERETT — Snohomish County officials explained on Monday, April 28, that the end of active search operations at the State Route 530 slide site will not mark an end to the search overall, nor will it result in the remaining search operations being conducted at a quicker pace. Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary elaborated that this represents a reduction from 900 Kirk Boxleitner/Staff Photo -1,000 people per day, working Snohomish County Executive John Lovick praises the during the height of the search, response to the State Route 530 slide, while Snohomish to as few as 30 searchers now, who will be conducting pas-

sive search operations as debris removal commences. Spotters in the field will work alongside heavy equipment operators to identify personal property that might still be in the slide material, and an active search could resume if conditions change, allowing access to areas that were previously inaccessible, or if evidence indicates the proximity of a victim. “We will still be proceeding responsibly, and it will still be a painstakingly slow process,” said Trenary, who credited the search maps that were drawn up at the outset of the search with continuing to direct their efforts in the most efficient manner

possible. “That mapping has given us really good information, but it’s still like trying to find a needle in a haystack.” While 41 victims have been identified by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner, two people — 53-year-old Steven N. Hadaway and 44-year-old Molly K. Regelbrugge, both residents of Steelhead Drive — remain missing. According to Trenary, searchers believe that Hadaway’s body is in a pool deep enough that it will need to be drained before searching it becomes feasible. Trenary added that recent wet weather SEE SEARCH, PAGE 24

OSO FROM PAGE 1 hood hard. “Every spring, we start planting in February, and we have to plan which plants we’ll be growing in our greenhouses or bringing here, and which supplies we need to bring in,” Aaron Hall said. “Even after almost a month, we were still optimistic about State Route 530 reopening relatively soon, so I put my efforts into fundraising for the Oso Community Chapel instead, and helped generate about $190,000 for those who have been hit hardest by the slide. We weren’t worried about our business until we started getting closer to the time of year when we usually open, and the highway wasn’t open yet because they hadn’t stopped the search.” Carla called the Hampton Lumber Mill in Darrington to check on a rumor that they’d closed, and while the mill’s manager was able to refute those claims, she did learn of the significant additional costs of time and money that Hampton Lumber was incurring because of the two-hour detour its truckers were being forced to take. When she spoke with Washington State Department of Transportation officials, they were unable to tell her when the search might end, and explained to her that they were limited in clearing the road by the remaining victim recovery efforts. “So we didn’t know whether we should proceed or declare this season a total loss,” said Carla Hall, owner of Fruitful Farm. “For what we do, we have to have traffic on this road in order to be viable.” “We don’t market our goods at

any other location,” Aaron Hall said. “We’ve done well enough, with just our Oso location, that we’ve never needed to before.” While Fruitful Farm usually opens the last week of April, the Halls have rescheduled that opening to Friday, May 9, at 9:30 a.m., to coincide with the opening of the Mystic Mountain Nursery at 29909 Oso Loop Rd. “We’ve already got bills due,” Carla Hall said. “Those first couple of weeks usually cover a lot of our costs just by themselves. We’re spending thousands of dollars to have these plants ready to sell, and a lot of our business is in the spring.” “The irony is that we were doing all this relief work, but now we realize that we might need some help,” Aaron Hall said. The Halls credited WSDOT, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Small Business Administration with all being very sympathetic to their plight, but WSDOT is constrained by the necessities of its ongoing search efforts, while FEMA and SBA have both told the Halls that they don’t have the authority to grant disaster loans to Fruitful Farm, which falls under the U.S. Department of Agriculture instead. “Our business doesn’t fit into a neat little box,” Aaron Hall said. “Even if we do qualify for those loans, we don’t want to apply for them unless we have a plan to pay them back, and we can’t make those plans until we know when Highway 530 will be fully reopened and we’ll have traffic back on this road. There’s a lot of misunderstanding about how much of Oso is still accessible. It was the Steelhead Drive neighborhood that was wiped out, not us.

Darrington residents Bridget and Larry Evans managed to stop by the Rhodes River Ranch’s Restaurant on April 30, for the first time since the slide on March 22. We’ve had so many people tell us that they thought we were on the other side of the slide. Oso is still here, and still open for business.” Bonnie Rose, of the Rhodes River Ranch and Restaurant at 22016 Entsminger Rd., agreed with the Halls that better signage along State Route 530 and Highway 9 in Arlington could clear up some of this confusion, if state legislators allowed exceptions to WSDOT’s signage rules. Like Fruitful Farm, Rhodes River Ranch is not only losing business from visitors making round-trips from Arlington, but also from travelers who are headed to Darrington, the North Cascades and beyond. “I doubt they’ll take the time

to drive through that temporaryaccess one-lane road,” Aaron Hall said. “Our Easter buffet is typically one of our huge events for the year, but attendance was down to about a third of its normal levels this year,” said Rose, whose 30 employees include several Darrington residents who live on the other side of the slide. “We’ve had to create a bunkhouse arrangement for them to stay here during the week, while they arrange babysitters and caretakers for their families back home. Everything’s a waiting game now, and it affects how much meat and produce I should buy.” On Wednesday, April 30, Rose greeted Bridget and Larry Evans,

two regular customers of the Rhodes River Ranch’s Restaurant since its inception three years ago, who had been stranded on the east side of the slide since March 22. “We have fond memories here,” Bridget Evans said. “People think we’re all isolated out here in the boonies, but they don’t realize how many businesses there actually are in Oso,” Rose said. “Economically, this area was already in decline, which is why it’s so important to revitalize it with recreational opportunities, but right now, the main road is closed, more parks need to be reopened and there’s no river recreation left, because everything downstream is polluted.”

Oso homeowners, commuters voice concerns BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

ARLINGTON — Snohomish County and Washington State Department of Transportation officials again met with area residents at the Stillaguamish Senior Center on Wednesday, April 30, to update them on the fallout of the March 22 Oso slide. Arlington Mayor Barbara Tolbert opened the meeting by assuring attendees that their input from the April 16 meeting had been noted, while Linda Neunzig of the Northwest Agriculture Business Center informed farmers that the U.S. Department of Agriculture can help restore their lands to pre-disaster conditions through their Emergency Conservation Program and Livestock Indemnity Program. Applicants should document the numbers of hours they’ve worked fencing, clearing debris and had hired help laboring on their behalf, as well as provide pictures and birth records of all their animals. Owen Carter, deputy director of Snohomish County Public Works, assured the public that geologists are continuing to monitor the site of the slide for movement, of which there hasn’t been any, aside from some slough-

ing. Although he explained that what’s being called the “pilot channel” of the postslide Stillaguamish River had been widened and deepened, he admitted that the ultimate course that the river will take remains unpredictable, which is why hydrologists are developing models to map out its possible shifts. WSD OT C hief Construction Engineer Linea Laird entered the fray when Carter commented about possibly raising State Route 530 between 10-20 feet, inspiring some considerable ire from homeowners alongside the highway, who already fear their lands are unsaleable as it is, without their access ways to and views of the surrounding landscape being blocked. Laird emphasized how nebulous their current plans are, and introduced WSDOT Region Administrator Lorena Eng to break down the three phases of developments that are set to happen next. “The first is that we’ve secured a contract with Granite Construction to maintain and operate the Seattle City Light maintenance road for access,” said Eng, who reiterated that one-lane traffic on the road would be directed by pilot cars, from Darrington to Arlington at the top of the hour, and from Arlington to

Darrington on the half-hour. “The second is the removal of material from the roadway, which is buried 20-25 feet deep under debris.” Eng hoped that process would require no more than a month, but acknowledged that this will depend on what sort of personal and/or hazardous materials are found in the debris. “The third, of course, is to restore State Route 530 to being a two-way highway within the quickest amount of time possible,” Eng said. “To facilitate that process, we’ll be hiring a designbuilder, so instead of the architectural design and the construction happening in separate stages, they’ll take place simultaneously.” Eng reported that eight parties have already submitted applications, which will be narrowed down to four who will submit project proposals, including details such as what their construction methods will be, and how they’ll maintain the current level of traffic during construction. “We don’t have the luxury of observing the river for a year to see what it’ll do,” Eng said. “The proposals are due May 27, and we’ll select one by May 30, so that the construction can proceed on June 3. Our goal is to restore two-lane traffic on Highway 530 by October.”

Owen Carter, deputy director of Snohomish County Public Works, and Arlington Mayor Barbara Tolbert address attendees of an April 30 community meeting on the fallout of the March 22 Oso slide. Although Eng pledged to work with homeowners along State Route 530 to ensure that they retain access to the road, several still objected on aesthetic grounds, noting that an elevated road would diminish the views from their houses and make them even less attractive to prospective buyers. A more pressing concern was voiced by a property owner who pointed out that they’re currently treated the same as out-of-towners when they try to gain access

to their own homes, not only by having to wait in long lines for the access way, but also by being barred from entering their former homes. A system of passes was proposed, both for property owners and those whom they might hire to work on their property. In the meantime, Laird asked for commuters’ patience, as WSDOT studies the emerging traffic patterns on its new access way, to determine if any adjustments need to be made. “It’s not normal yet, but it’s

one step closer to normal,” Laird said. “There are areas where it gets wider and narrower, and while you must maintain slow speeds, you can’t stop. Still, it’s been a very comfortable drive for me.” Theresa Myklebust, employment specialist with WorkSource Mountlake Terrace, closed out the evening’s program by encouraging people to call 855-6365610, option 1, to apply for Disaster Unemployment Assistance before Monday, May 5.

nyone who’s seen it is a little stunned by the size of the south county apartment project near I-5 and 164th. The Altia is the largest of a number of new developments surrounding the intersection. In total, the cluster of new developments is adding 2,600 apartments and townhomes to an already dense population. A sign of the times. This is the area that two of my ski buddies once roamed as children. Every landmark where their boyhood adventures took place has been erased with the quick efficiency of shaking an Etch-aSketch and built over. It took only 40 years for a near-total transformation. The speed of change is driven by population growth. The county’s population has increased by 223 percent over the past 40 years, adding 80 million people each year with not enough thought about the effects. Not all worry, some pointing to great documents of faith, the Bible and Koran, saying, the Lord will provide. Or God is in charge so everything will turn out just ducky. Five years ago, Bill Gates met with the nation’s top movers and shakers to discuss their favorite causes. When asked about the “umbrella cause” that triggers the Big Issues afflicting society and nature, they all answered, “It’s overpopulation.” Then Bill returned to the Gates Foundation to save the lives of countless millions with

vaccines, nutrition and control of malaria. There’s an uncomfortable irony at work here. Like Gates, I hate to see anyone suffer from hunger or disease. I also hate to see humankind rush to collide with predictable disaster. Back in the 1960s, a movement called ZPG worked to awaken public concern. ZPG, or Zero Population Growth, studied the approaching population bomb and figured that it would be a good idea for people to breed only to replace themselves. China was the only place where it caught on, in an ugly and heavy-handed sort of way. Bill Gates and friends rightly suspect that we’re breeding ourselves into extinction, but few seem to care. Is it futile to hope that birth rates might be humanely reduced? It seems that the U.N., billionaires and scientists are caught up in a conspiracy of silence that will leave the population to afflict everyone who comes after us. Erle Ellis, a professor of environmental systems at the University of Maryland, disagrees, writing “We transform ecosystems to sustain ourselves. Our planet’s human-

carrying capacity emerges from the capabilities of our social systems and our technologies more than from any environmental limits. There is no environmental reason for people to go hungry now or in the future.” Ellis is in the same camp with Exxon-Mobil’s CEO, Rex Tillerson, who agrees that climate change is real, but that it can be fixed with engineering solutions. He says we’ll adapt to rising sea levels since we’ve spend out entire history adapting. Not to worry. Fill your tank and be on your merry way. One camp contends that the oceans can handle whatever we send downstream — because it always has. All we need to do is love each other and consume less and everything will turn out just fine. Except that free-market capitalism, uprisings of have-nots and territorial aggressions might get in the way. The green camp has 20,000 esteemed scientists petitioning the U.N. to get off its duff and act. They are 100 percent sure that without aggressive countermeasures, climate change will wipe our species off the planet like dinosaurs. Interesting that they, too, dodge the Big Questions: How can out-of-control population growth be reined in? And how might we wean ourselves off dirty and dangerous fossil fuels? Environmentalists aren’t happy with Big Oil’s $37 billion annual

search for new oil. Against Big Oil’s congressional lobby stands a passionate little corps of hybrid and electric car drivers with solar collectors atop their homes. Let’s hope that Marysville YMCA’s scheduled 10 kilowatt solar installation is a sign that solar is catching on hereabouts. Philadelphia is installing a battery superconductor system to deliver split-second power to the city and its subway system. Virginia Tech researchers came up with a sugar-powered fuel cell with 10 times the energy density of lithiumion batteries. High capacity batterylike devices using tiny carbon tubes charge fast and seemingly, don’t wear out. A friend just installed a 5.2 kilowatt solar array in his Arlington backyard. So it seems possible that tools for replacing petroleum-powered engines with electrics are on the horizon to promise a cleaner atmosphere. Banks of batteries in basements and solar arrays on roofs may be just around the corner, not because it’s good to be green but because it’s becoming practical. It seems that we’re actually making progress on the environmental front by moving from dirty energy to clean energy, a technological fix. Now, what can be done about population, the problem where technology doesn’t apply?

How to recognize, cope with Critical Incident Stress BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

ARLINGTON — When Mary Schoenfeldt, of the Green Cross Academy of Traumatology, spoke to area residents at the Byrnes Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, April 29, about Critical Incident Stress, she made the scope of its impact quite clear. “There’s not any of us here who aren’t susceptible to it, based on what we’ve already gone through,” Schoenfeldt said, referring to the community’s many connections to the March 22 slide in Oso. “I live in Marysville and work in the Everett office of the Department of Emergency Management. That Saturday, I just happened to have the duty phone.” While Schoenfeldt had played active roles in disaster recovery efforts across the country, this was the first time that such a disaster hit literally so close to home for her. “I was very thankful that I was able to apply in my own community what I’d learned from dealing with such incidents in other communities,” Schoenfeldt said. Rather than asking anyone

in attendance to speak or volunteer their own feelings or experiences, Schoenfeldt simply listed some of the more common symptoms of Critical Incident Stress, and made clear that trained and certified professionals would be available to listen after the meeting if they were needed. “Critical Incident Stress can follow in the wake of a sudden, high-profile tragedy, that affects children and families, and gains media attention,” Schoenfeldt said. “Our bodies and brains both struggle to make sense out of such senselessness. It doesn’t just hit us emotionally, but physiologically as well. Our bodies release all these chemicals in response, which can make our hearts beat faster, make us sick to our stomachs or even cause a loss of bladder control. Distraction and confusion are very common symptoms.” Schoenfeldt urged people to talk with doctors if they’re experiencing insomnia or frequent nightmares. “Again, nightmares are a way that the subconscious tries to make sense of the senseless,” Schoenfeldt said. “The brain tries to compare it to similar experiences, but

if you don’t have any similar experiences, then it plays on your fears.” The symptoms can range from cognitive lapses, such as difficulty in remembering people or even identifying shapes, to emotional problems, such as being easily startled, quick to anger or spontaneously bursting into tears. “Sometimes, you just feel like you want to withdraw, to step back or step away, and sometimes that’s the best thing to do,” Schoenfeldt said. “If you can’t complete a task or get settled, just take 10 minutes to walk away and come back. Break what you have to do down into lists of tasks so that you feel a sense of accomplishment when you complete each one.” Guilt can be an especially crippling emotional response to Critical Incident Stress, whether it’s directed at yourself or toward others. “There’s the ‘coulda, shoulda, woulda’ of survivor’s guilt, but you have to tell yourself that there’s no guarantee it would have turned out better if those factors had been changed,” Schoenfeldt said. “Some people respond by blaming others instead, but it’s moti-

vated by the same desire to take some measure of power back.” Schoenfeldt has already heard from several Darrington residents who now have panic attacks triggered by getting into their cars. “There’s also those folks who just avoid checking their emails or answering their phones,” Schoenfeldt said. “Many of the ways that we respond to Critical Incident Stress aren’t particularly healthy, but what can we do?” Schoenfeldt suggested falling back on strategies that have helped you overcome stress in the past, and encouraged everyone to talk about their issues. “There’s this image we have of ourselves, and we can wear it like armor,” Schoenfeldt said. “You need to be able to take down the mask.” While diversions such as art projects can provide healthy breaks from such traumas, Schoenfeldt repeatedly emphasized that the most important thing, espe-

Arlington Fire Chief Bruce Stedman introduces the Critical Incident Stress meeting at the Byrnes Performing Arts Center on April 29. cially when one is suffering from the fatigue of feeling too much compassion for others, is to care properly for oneself. “We hurt because other people are hurting, but it’s okay to take good care of yourself too,” Schoenfeldt said. “Pace yourself. Set real-

istic expectations for yourself. Don’t make any big life decisions, because your Critical Incident Stress means that you’re lacking your full powers of judgement. Listen to those around you, like family and friends, who know you and care about you, and be gentle with yourself.”

WSP’s Mobile Impaired Driving Unit visits Tulalip BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

TULALIP — The Washington State Patrol’s Mobile Impaired Driving Unit made an appearance at the WSP’s Driving Symposium at the Tulalip Resort Hotel and Casino on Thursday, May 1, during which elected officials and community members alike received a full tour of the 36-foot-long “one-stop shop,” in the words of Washington State Patrol Sgt. Brandon Villanti. “We decide where to send it based on requests from other agencies who coordinate with the State Patrol,” Villanti said, as he escorted state Rep. Hans Dunshee and a trio of local insurance agents into the big rig. “It tends to coincide with holidays or other big events. We’ll be sending it to Spokane for Hoopfest, and we’ve sent it to Wenatchee for the Apple Blossom Festival, Seattle for Seafair and Ocean Park for the Rod Run.” The MIDU includes not only three separate breathalyzer machines, so that three different suspects can be tested at the same time, but it also has two holding cells in the back, to maintain secure custody of suspects who are waiting their turn. The computers include three terminals in back, for officers to file

reports and search warrants, as well as a command terminal closer to the front, and a dispatch terminal, the latter of which can be utilized as an incident command center, since it links up to large monitors, can burn off DVD copies of footage and can broadcast real-time video signals from law enforcement and emergency response vehicles, such as planes being used to fight forest fires. “We can even do blood draws from here,” Villanti said. “We send the mobile unit to about 60-80 events a year, as needed.” “The time that it takes an officer to process a DUI is time that they could be spending out on the road, pulling over another DUI,” said Lt. Robert Sharpe, commander of the Washington State Patrol’s Impaired Driving Section. “With the mobile unit, we’ve actually had overlapping arrests, where officers will pull over one driver for DUI, bring him in to be processed, go back out on the road, and bring back another DUI driver before the first one has even been processed yet. We had one officer who got four DUIs in a single night, which is unheard of.” “It’s especially important because, with DUIs, you’re losing your evidence by the minute,” Villanti said. “Their bodies are metabolizing the drugs and alcohol, and while some

drugs stay in your system longer, others are converted to the point that you can’t necessarily prove impairment.” That being said, Villanti noted that it’s not uncommon to arrest drivers for DUI even if they blow less than a .08 BAC on their breathalyzer tests, because he’s arresting them for showing signs of impairment on the road. “There are a lot of handheld breathalyzers that are sold in stores, which are pretty fake,” Sharpe said. “Even the FST breathalyzer, which is fairly accurate, isn’t admissible in court.” “Because handheld breathalyzers aren’t calibrated by technicians,” Washington State Patrol Sgt. JoAnn Buettner said. “Bottom line, if you’re relying on a handheld breathalyzer to tell you whether you’re sober or not, you’re probably drunk,” Sharpe said. Marysville State Farm Insurance agents Luis Sanchez, Tom Paul and Brian Pepelnjak were interested to hear that as many as 130 boaters at a time have been processed for boating under the influence through the MIDU at Seafair. “If people apply for boating insurance, we often look at their driving records,” Paul said. “If they’ve done a lot of speeding, we assume it might carry over into

State Rep. Hans Dunshee and Lt. Robert Sharpe, commander of the Washington State Patrol’s Impaired Driving Section, discuss some of the finer points of the WSP’s Mobile Impaired Driving Unit on May 1. their boating habits.” “Many of the drunk boaters we’ve brought in were already on probation for DUI, but they thought it was okay if they did it in a boat,” Sharpe said. “That’s why BUI has been changed to more closely reflect DUI. It won’t affect your driver’s license like a DUI will, but it’s gone from being a misdemeanor to being a gross misdemeanor. People don’t realize that you can be

charged with DUI if you’re driving any motorized vehicle under the influence, including a motorized wheelchair.” Sharpe concluded the tour by tentatively predicting that the state’s breathalyzers will be replaced with newer models by the end of the year, which is needed since the Washington State Patrol conducts the breathalyzer tests for all city ,county and state agencies.

Letter Carriers’ Food Drive set for May 10 BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

SMOKEY POINT — The Marysville, Arlington and Smokey Point post offices are gearing up for their annual Letter Carriers’ “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive on Saturday, May 10, to benefit the Marysville and Arlington community food banks. Residents of Marysville, Arlington and Smokey Point

should be on the lookout for yellow bags that will be delivered to their mailboxes during the week of May 5, no later than May 10. Those area residents are being asked to place their non-perishable food items in those bags for mail carriers to pick up on May 10, with the Marysville Post Office collecting for the Marysville Community Food Bank, and the Arlington and

Smokey Point post offices collecting for the Arlington Community Food Bank. “This food drive is the single most important food drive of the year,” said Dell Deierling, director of the Marysville Community Food Bank. “The Food Bank relies on this food to get through the summer, when kids are at home and family needs are high.” Deierling has seen the

number of families needing assistance from the Marysville Community Food Bank increase 5 percent over this time last year. “We’re hoping for this food drive to get strong community support, to stock up our shelves and prepare us for a busy summer,” Deierling said. Jerrie Inman, a member of the Arlington Community Food Bank Board of Directors, deemed the Letter

Carriers’ Food Drive the largest food drive of the year for her food bank. “The food we receive during the holiday season just barely gets us to this food drive,” Inman said. “The food we receive in this food drive will hopefully get us through to the holidays.” While most pickups will be conducted by mail carriers, Inman assured donors that other vehicles which bear signs promoting the Letters Carriers’ Food Drive are also authorized to retrieve those yellow collection bags. “We’ve had people call us up worried about it, but it’s okay,” Inman laughed. “This is an event that our volunteers look forward to every year,” said Dennis G. Smith, president and CEO of the United Way of Snohomish County. “It’s a fun, tangible way to give back to the community.” Volunteers can learn more and sign up at http://t.uwsc. org/fooddrivevolunteer. “One in seven people in Snohomish County is food insecure, which makes this annual food drive more important than ever,” said Alex Heart, chief pro-

gram officer for Volunteers of America Western Washington. Last year, 277,263 pounds of food were collected as part of this event, accounting for half of all food received by Snohomish County food banks for the entire year. Snohomish County food banks rely heavily on the canned goods, dry foods such as pasta and cereal, and other non-perishable items that make up the bulk of food donations. “This is the 22nd year of the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive, and we’re honored to be part of such an important cause, year after year,” said Bob James, president of the Snohomish County Association of Letter Carriers. “Our letter carriers love being able to give back to the community and help neighbors in need.” Although the food drive is a national event, in Snohomish County it’s organized by National Association of Letter Carriers Local 791, Volunteers of America Western Washington, United Way of Snohomish County and the Snohomish County Labor Council.

Local access to Darrington provided via former maintenance road

DARRINGTON — The Washington State Department of Transportation recognized the need for another route in and out of Darrington, so after five weeks of slide detours that added multiple hours and hundreds of miles to motorists’ commutes, WSDOT opened the Seattle City Light Access Road to local and emergency traffic starting at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday, April 29, to bypass the section of State Route 530 still blocked by the slide. WSDOT secured agreements with underlying property owners and Seattle City Light to ensure the route’s availability for use as a local emergency bypass for residents cut off by the March 22 Oso slide. “From the very beginning, Seattle City Light has worked with emergency responders, to assist however it could,” Seattle Mayor Ed Murray said. “This agreement continues that support for community recovery efforts, by providing a vital transportation link, so residents can get to work and school, and businesses can make deliveries.” Similar to the Mountain Loop Highway, this is a onelane gravel road, and before it was opened to the public, Granite Construction was hired to maintain and oper-

ate the roadway for the next six months. Granite Construction was the low bidder, selected for the $3.384 million contract. Emergency funds from the Federal Highway Administration will cover the cost of this temporary road, until traffic is restored on State Route 530. This road will be open for local traffic only. Pilot cars will guide drivers through the route. Drivers will be escorted through, westbound at the top of the hour, and eastbound on the half-hour, around the clock. The speed limit is 10 miles per hour. Drivers will not be allowed to stop or pull over along the road. No trailers or vehicles weighing more than 15,000 pounds are permitted. Logging trucks will be allowed on the road from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Washington State Patrol troopers and private security staff will assist in escorting vehicles on the route. Make sure you arrive early. Once the pilot vehicles have left, you will need to wait about an hour. Trips through the local access road are averaging between 15-20 minutes, but those times could increase if non-local traffic begins using the route for recreational trips.

“Everyone needs to do their part to keep this critical lifeline open to the local community during the reconstruction of SR 530,” WSDOT Chief Construction Engineer Linea Laird said. “The temporary bypass will not carry high volumes, and that’s why we are asking drivers who don’t have local community ties, or local business interests, to use State Route 20 to detour around the slide zone.” WSDOT is expected to award a contract for the clearing of material from State Route 530 within the week to come. The low bid contractor will be required to follow the removal plan developed by WSDOT and Snohomish County. This plan is designed to ensure the proper care and respectful recovery of any human remains, possessions or hazardous materials discovered while the roadway is cleared and reopened rapidly in an environmentally responsible manner. The Federal Emergency Management Agency will cover the majority of costs for this project, which should take about a month to complete. In addition, WSDOT has compiled a short list of teams for the design-build contract to construct a permanent raised alignment of State Route 530 east of Oso. This list includes:

n Guy F. Atkinson Construction. n Granite Construction. n Parson/Kuney, a joint venture. n Skanska-Scarsella, a joint venture. WSDOT will determine the best-value proposal by the end of May, with the notice to proceed issued by early June. Completion is scheduled for early October. Funding for this portion will be paid for by the Federal Highway Administration. For more information, log onto Projects/SR530/Landslide.

Cub Scouts raise funds for programs


MARYSVILLE — Although Cub Scout Pack 178 is made up mostly of Arlington and Lakewood kids, they found themselves in new territory when they needed a venue for their pancake breakfast fundraiser on April 26. “We’re actually based out of English Crossing Elementary, and sponsored by the Rotary Club of Arlington,” Pack 178 Cubmaster Darren Thompson said. “But the Marysville American Legion Post 178 Hall was just the best location for this event, in no small part because we wouldn’t have been able to raise any money anywhere else, after we turned around and paid the rental fees.” Thompson and his fellow adults managed to keep the 16 Cubs in attendance that morning mostly on

task for duration of the three-hour breakfast, during which the Cubs served at least 100 hungry attendees meals that had been freshly cooked by the Cubs’ parents, yielding a total of $767 in donated funds. With a successful haul like this, Thompson is already considering when the Pack might be able to schedule a return to the Marysville Legion Hall. “With 26 Cubs in our Pack, our finances have become a bit of an issue,” Thompson said. “We want to be able to do more, and provide more for them. We want to be able to pay for Pack membership, for those who might not be able to afford it, and also pay for things like awards and hiking trips for the Cubs.” Thompson cited the annual Pinewood Derby at the Arlington Boys & Girls Club as a significant event, but in the meantime, the Pack’s next get-together activity will be a

camping trip to Fire Mountain, in Mount Vernon, near the end of May. If you’re interested in joining or learning more about Cub Scout Pack 178, email Thompson at The American Legion Post 178 Hall is located at 119 Cedar Ave. in Marysville. Those who are interested in renting the facility should call Sara LeSpade at 425-268-6658. It comes with tables and chairs for about 65 people, a kitchen with a sink, a refrigerator and freezer, a stove with an oven and microwave, a bar counter and a raised stage for entertainment. Sundays through Fridays, it runs $400 for a 12-hour rental, and Saturdays, it runs $450, with a $300 reservation fee and security deposit for each event.

AHS FFA raises $600 through test drives


SMOKEY POINT — The Arlington High School chapter of Future Farmers of America had set a goal of generating $2,000 for FFA in a single day, through the Rairdon’s Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram test-drive fundraiser on Saturday, April 26. This event was part of a national day of test-drive fundraising events, at participating Ram dealerships across the country, with the monies that it raised going to the national FFA organization, in support of its local FFA chapter leadership programs. So, in that sense, the AHS FFA succeeded in their goal, since the Ram test-drives raised $6,620 for FFA in general. For Arlington, though, the 31 test-drives at Rairdon’s Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, running at $13 per test drive, yielded slightly more than $600. Still, with the State FFA

Convention coming up on May 15-17 in Olympia, AHS FFA advisor Tracy Brown will gratefully take whatever she can get. “This will help muchneeded monetary support for our members to go to State,” Brown said. “The face of the farmer is always changing, but it’s important that we all remember that, at least three times a day, we all rely on a farmer.” Those who missed the April 26 test-drive fundraiser can still support the AHS FFA through its next fundraiser, a plan sale at the Arlington High School greenhouse, located at 18821 Crown Ridge Blvd., from 3-6 p.m. on Thursday, May 8, and Friday, May 9, as well as from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 10. Baskets, geraniums and veggie starts will all be available. “FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students, by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and

career success through agricultural education,” Brown said, citing the organization’s mission statement. “I’d just like to thank everyone, and especially Rairdon’s Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, for supporting our program, and the next crop of farmers and leaders in the agriculture community.” Call 360-618-6300 or email for more information on the May 8-10 plant sale at AHS. Students who are interested in becoming members of the Arlington High School chapter of Future Farmers of America must enroll in an agriculture class, offered at AHS, in addition to paying dues of $25 and participate in activities ranging from competing in Career Development Events to exhibiting projects at summer fairs. If you have any questions about the AHS FFA, email its officers at arlingtonffa@, or Brown at

Arlington bulldogged by Mount Vernon BY BRANDON ADAM

ARLINGTON — Arlington baseball was defeated 10-3 by Mount Vernon on April 29. The Eagles took off with the lead first in the earlier innings, but imploded in the final three. “They just put the ball in play, and hit some balls hard,” Arlington head coach Scott Striegel said. “The thing about baseball is, once you get into a rally and come to the plate looking for a pitch, hitting is contagious.” After two quiet innings, Arlington started its lead in the third inning. “I thought we had good at -bats today. The guys went in with a good approach, looking for a hit,” Striegel said. The lead was started by a double from Arlington senior Ryan Walker, who was then brought home by senior Josh Schempp. After the Eagles’ first run, the bases became loaded and anoth-

er run was earned. Entering the bottom of the fourth inning 2-1, the Eagles had success again at bat. Arlington sophomore Kyle Bayer hit a double, and then advanced to third courtesy of a pitching error. Bayer was brought home by a hit from junior Peter Chung. It was going well for Arlington until Mount Vernon tied it at the top of the sixth, and eventually took the lead from the Eagles. “We did well in every inning,” Striegel said. “We had guys on base in the first couple of innings, but we couldn’t get that clutch hit.” Six unanswered runs were scored by Mount Vernon, leading up to its win over Arlington. “When we take care of ourselves and play good defensive baseball, we are in good position,” Striegel said. “The problem is, in the fifth inning we gave them a couple of extra outs, and it’s hard to win ball games when

you’re giving them five to six outs an inning.” Arlington is currently ranked fourth in the Wesco 4A South, with two more series left. “Right now we’re in a position to go to districts,” Striegel said. “But we’re going to need to continue to do some work.” Striegel believes his team has the talent to compete in the postseason. “We have good pitching,” Striegel said. “So if we can get to districts, you never know what will happen.” The Eagles’ league record was 5-8 on May 1. “We’ve been up and down,” Striegel said. “When we play well we can beat anyone in this league, and we’ve proven that by beating Lake Stevens, who is No. 1, on April 10.” Arlington lost to Lake Stevens, 3-5, on April 30. On May 2, Arlington played Lake Stevens again, but the results were not available by press time.

Lakewood crushes La Connor, 10-0 BY BRANDON ADAM

Lakewood’s Hunter Fritz legs it out to third base against La Conner on April 30

MARYSVILLE — The Lakewood Cougars baseball team continued its winning streak on April 30, topping La Conner 10-0. The Cougars earned their fourth consecutive win since April 21. “We were planning to come out and compete hard in our last non-league game of the year,” Lakewood head coach Jake Kon said. “We were going to throw a bunch of different guys out there on the mound. It was already predetermined.” Lakewood used five different pitchers throughout the game. Despite the versatility on the mound, all the Cougar pitchers threw consistently, denying any runs from La Conner. “We showed this might have been the best overall game we played together as

a team,” Kon said. “So that was good to see.” The Cougars blasted the 2B school in five innings. The game was scheduled for seven innings, but ended at the fifth due to the 10-run lead. Lakewood excelled in all phases of the game. “The guys took a good approach at the plate,” Kon said. “Our pitchers were throwing strikes around the plate. We played solid defense behind them, and that’s a good recipe for success at any level.” Lakewood began its domination in the second inning, scoring three runs. The Cougars showed patience and discipline at bat, knowing when to swing and take a hit. After a quiet third inning, the Cougars were hitting the ball again, loading up the bases and scoring five runs. Two more runs were scored by Lakewood in the

fifth inning, which ultimately led to its shutout score of 10-0. Lakewood baseball has had its ups and downs throughout the season, but Kon has noticed substantial improvement in the Cougars’ game. “Our biggest thing has been working together and communicating,” Kon said. “I think we have enough talent to go out and play with most everyone.” With their last two games against Coupeville on May 3, and Cedarcrest on May 5, Kon wants his Cougars to wrap up the season on a high mark. “We have to execute at 100 percent to compete with the better teams,” Kon said. “We didn’t execute great today. We missed a couple bunts.” As of May 1, Lakewood’s overall record was 7-11, and 6-10 in conference.

Pilchuck Composite places second BY HEIDI KLIPPERT

ARLINGTON — Through hail, wind, rain and even some sunshine, the Pilchuck Composite High School mountain bike team was able to hold on to its second-place position at their third race of the season April 27. The 4.6mile course was filled with climbing and descending through rolling terrain and mud at Joint Base LewisMcChord in Olympia. Riding for beginner girls, Piper Lee, a freshman at Stilly Valley, podiumed with a second-place finish, and her teammate, senior Hannah Mendro, from Arlington, placed sixth. In intermediate girls, senior Kayla Lampert, from Arlington, raced two laps and placed second. Elle Lee, a junior at Skagit Valley Community College Running Start, placed second in the varsity division, racing three laps or 13.8 miles. Hallie Williams from Post Middle School finished in third place. For the boys’ race, the

Sam Oakes, a junior from Skagit Valley Community College Running Start, placed ninth for intermediate boys, moving up in his overall ranking, and junior Glenn Gamboa from Arlington placed 20th, just missing 19th in a back-and-forth battle. Brendan Oakes, a

freshman at Granite Falls, placed 14th. For middle school boys, Holden Berg improved his time and placed 27th. “The camaraderie and support these kids and their parents bring to the team is inspiring,” assistant coach Belinda Rotton said.

ARLINGTON — When the student members of the Darrington Recreation and Education Foundation navigated around the Oso slide to raise funds for their programs outside the Arlington Pharmacy on Sunday, April 27, they found themselves receiving a slightly largerthan-average drop in the bucket from Dennis Smith, president and CEO of the United Way of Snohomish County. “I’ve always loved going up to Darrington to watch their games,” said Smith, who presented the Darrington Recreation and Education Foundation with an oversized check for $10,000 from the United Way of Snohomish County’s Disaster Recovery Fund. “You’re a wonderful community, and from all over the country, people are contributing to you, through either the United Way or

the Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation.” Smith touted such local funds as “collaborative and flexible,” especially in dealing with the needs currently facing the residents of Oso and Darrington, which he acknowledged range from support networks to emergency cash and gas cards. “We want Darrington’s athletes to be able to continue doing what they’re doing,” Smith said. “It’s the same reason why we’re paying to send 50 kids from Darrington to Camp Killoqua this summer. We’re trying to create some semblance of normalcy in their lives, so that they can hopefully move forward.” Darrington High School student athletes Trent Green and Andrew Young, both of whom play both baseball and football for the “Loggers” teams, were on hand to receive Smith’s check. “All this attention has been very unexpected,” Green said. “A lot of good has come

from a lot of bad here. Before the slide, we’d come over here to raise funds for our programs, and probably half the people here didn’t even know where Darrington was. Now, everybody knows.” “It’s the biggest thing I’ve ever experienced, as tragic as it is,” Young said. “It’s overwhelming.” “And for a sports program like ours, $10,000 is huge,” Green said. Erin Feller, president of the Darrington Recreation and Education Foundation, expects this contribution will help improve students’ access to athletic and other extracurricular activities that might otherwise have fallen outside their financial reach. “The biggest consideration is the pay-to-participate fee, which runs about $75 per kid, per sport,” Feller said. “Even for little kids, it’s still $35. If we remove that barrier, then they can stay engaged, not only in sports, but also in drama and art.”

Tribute reaffirms that slide survivors are ‘Oso Strong’ BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

OSO — The Oso Community Chapel came alive with affirmations that the surrounding community was “Oso Strong” on the evening of Saturday, April 26, as U.S. Rep. Suzan DelBene joined Oso Community Chapel Pastor Gary Ray and others in sharing a meal and some meditations upon the March 22 Oso slide. Pastor Timothy Moore, of the Restoration Church in Mukilteo, began his address to the packed tent by thanking the first responders for their contributions to the recovery work. “In honor of your efforts to serve the community, you get to go first,” Moore said, gesturing to the open buffet line. “You’ve been in our hearts and prayers, so allow us to serve you.” Before the nearly 100 guests in attendance began lining up for the catered pot luck dinner, Moore prayed that everyone present would be able to know comfort and healing from the tragedy that had brought them all together.

“Please, Lord, help put together the broken pieces of ourselves that we put before you,” Moore said. “Let this be a love feast, whose fellowship strengthens our hearts and minds.” The 286th Engineer Company of the Washington Army National Guard, which had been working the slide site since Sunday, April 20, wound up arriving late to the very meal where seats had been reserved for them as special guests of honor, but they received a standing ovation upon their entrance to the tent all the same. “All of you, from the first responders to the firefighters, actually led this recovery effort,” said 1st Lt. Brandon Buehler, of the 286th Engineer Company. “We’re just humbled to be able to support you.” “So many people have come out here to help our community that I’ve been overwhelmed by the influx,” Oso Fire Chief Willy Harper said. “And yet, you’ve been patient, and kind, and respectful.” “This tent is really an example of what ‘Oso Strong’ is all about,

and you’re all part of it,” DelBene said. “Every one of you has helped out an incredible community, and it’s been an honor for me to work with you. This is truly inspirational.” Pastor Paul Stoot Sr., president of the Washington State Baptist Convention, brought not just kind sentiments, but also a check for $5,000 to aid the Oso community in its transition, with the promise of more funds to come. “When we heard of this tragedy, we said to ourselves, ‘These are our brothers and sisters, and we have to help,’” Stoot said. “As our President said, when times get tough, we look out for each other. We get each other’s backs. We recover, and rebuild, and come back stronger. We’re sticking with you, because this tragedy affects all of us, across the country.” Ray followed Stoot by reporting that he’s received hundreds of letters from throughout America, and one that moved him the most came from a prisoner. “He sent $4.80, because that was all he had to give,” Ray said.

words. “When I see this many people, it feels like I should be taking an offering,” Ray joked, drawing laughter and applause from the crowd, before he told them, “But now is not the time to get money. Now is a time for healing. It’s so good to see so many good people, all of you helping hands. I see great people who were drawn to this land because of its majestic beauty, and though we’ve weathered tragedy, it’s

brought out the best in us. The mountain came down, but the people rose up, and the flood waters have been symbolic of the rising stories of heroism. This tragedy didn’t wipe Oso off the map. It put us on the map. Rather than shutting down and giving up, I’ve seen us stand up, and stand tall, and draw leaders from our state, our region and our nation, because we are,” he led the crowd in a chorus of the words, “Oso Strong.”

‘It’s Raining Art’ showcases Buzz Inn auction, benefit variety of local artwork concert raise $14K for Oso BY KIRK BOXLEITNER


MARYSVILLE — Art Limon hadn’t even heard anything about an art show in his hometown of Marysville, but when he wandered into the front doors of the former Dunn Lumber building on Grove Street, he found himself treated not only to the works of 19 different local artists, but also to the sounds of area musicians, and some samples of craft wine and spirits. Indeed, while Limon had missed out on 12-string guitarist David Lee Howard on the first day of the Marysville Arts Coalition’s third annual “It’s Raining Art” event on Friday, April 25, he was still able to catch the performances of Native American flautist Paul Nyenhuis and acoustic guitarist Michael Gotz on Saturday, April 26. What really caught Limon’s eye, though — or rather, his ear — was the unique gourd art of Arlington’s Frankie Howard, who learned her craft at the Ken Baxter Community Center in Marysville. “What is that?” Limon asked of the polished gourd with the long, thin spring dangling from its base. By way of an answer, Howard strummed the spring, creating an unnatural-sounding echo inside the gourd. Marysville Arts Coalition President Beckye Randall wanted “It’s Raining Art” to focus on quality art, and if nothing else, attendees like Limon found the works of artists like Howard to be compelling art. “Speaking on behalf of my fellow Marysville Arts Coalition Board members, who were on hand to staff this event that Friday and Saturday, we were pleased with this year’s attendance,

Michael Gotz plays his acoustic guitar at the Marysville Arts Coalition’s ‘It’s Raining Art’ event on April 26. and we were thrilled with the quality of the artwork on display from our local artists,” Randall said. “By making this a juried show, we raised the bar for participants, and attracted a wonderful variety of artists working in a wide range of mediums.” Randall and her fellow Marysville Arts Coalition Board members were also enthused to feature an exhibit of student artwork at the show, which was organized by fellow Board member Kurt Hollstein, who teaches fine arts at Marysville Getchell’s School for the Entrepreneur. “Several student musicians provided live music that Saturday as well, facilitated by Jim Strickland, the Marysville-Pilchuck High School Life Skills teacher who also conducts the monthly Strawberry Acoustic Jam open-mic music nights, that the Marysville Arts Coalition helps to sponsor,” Randall said. The Marysville Arts Coalition’s core volunteer group is made up of about 10 people, all of whom were very hands-on in planning and staffing the art show. “A number of people, both artists and custom-

ers, asked about participating in the Marysville Arts Coalition, which is always good,” Randall said. “We don’t really have a structured membership. Our meetings are open to the public, and we welcome all who are interested in supporting and promoting the arts in Marysville.” The Marysville Arts Coalition’s meetings start at 6:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of every month, either at the Ornamental Arts Gallery, in Suite 105 at 13805 Smokey Point Blvd. in Marysville, or at the Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts Center, at 1410 Grove St. in Marysville. “All in all, the feedback from our guests and vendors was overwhelmingly positive, and we see lots of growth ahead for this annual event,” Randall said. Although the Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts Center often hosts the Marysville Arts Coalition’s events, Randall emphasized that the two are separate organizations. Log onto the Marysville Arts Coalition’s Facebook page at MarysvilleArts, or email Randall at brandallrcf@, for more information.

SMOKEY POINT — The Buzz Inn Steakhouse at 5200 172nd St. NE in Arlington drew an estimated 400 attendees through its sevenhour “Oso Strong” silent auction and benefit concert on Saturday, April 26, raising thousands of dollars in the process. “We made a little more than $7,500 from the auction of merchandise donated by the Buzz Inn, as well as the gift baskets the Buzz Inn staff made,” said Josh Herschlip, general manager of the Buzz Inn. “Surrounding businesses also donated items for the auction.” While patrons such as Tiffany Poynter and Theresa Laschober were checking out a Keurig Coffee gift basket, and Marcie McMurtrie was bidding on a “movie night” gift basket, with its own DVD player included, the Buzz Inn was also generating an additional estimated $4,000 in combined cash contributions from its spaghetti and bar sales. “Mike Collins, of Latigo Lace, donated a signed Seahawks football that fetched $1,080,” Herschlip said, noting that the Seattlebased Latigo Lace country band performed at the Buzz Inn that same day at 6 p.m. “Between that, and all the money that was just flat-out donated, we raised a combined total of $14,170.” Herschlip even invited those who were unable to attend the auction and con-

Tiffany Poynter and Theresa Laschober check out a Keurig Coffee gift basket during the Buzz Inn Steakhouse’s ‘Oso Strong’ silent auction on April 26. cert to contribute by sending a donation check to the Latigo Lace Oso Fund, P.O. Box 80651, Seattle, WA 98108. All checks should be made payable to the North County Family Services Relief Fund Association. “All the money we raised was donated to the North County Family Services Relief Fund Association, through an account at Coastal Community Bank that will only be dispersed to the families who have been directly affected by the tragedy in Oso.” Herschlip thanked not only his customers, his staff and the surrounding community for showing their support for his fundraiser, but also expressed his appreciation to the lineup of musical acts who played for the event, including not only Latigo Lace, but also their fellow country musicians, the Leavenworth-based Marlin James Band and

Arlington’s own Jesse Taylor. “It’s very inspiring to see so many people come together for the same cause when people are in need,” Herschlip said. “I can only hope that the support that will still be needed by the Oso community continues to roll in. It will be a long process for this community and its residents to recover from this tragedy, and obviously those loved ones who were lost can never be replaced, but hopefully, Oso’s neighbors can help them bear some of the financial burden that this slide has caused.” In addition to performing at a number of benefit concerts for Oso, Taylor also designed “Oso Strong” T-shirts, of which 3,100 were sold online, with all $52,020 of the proceeds raised going directly to the Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund for Oso.

‘Memorial Field’ honors three key figures in Marysville baseball BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — Before the Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks and Marysville Getchell Chargers took to the ball-field on the Marysville-Pilchuck High School campus on Saturday, April 26, it was rechristened “Memorial Field,” finally honoring a two-year-old request from M-P alum Gary Ray, to recognize three people for their historic contributions to the Marysville School District’s baseball legacy. Marysville School District Athletic Director Greg Erickson explained that this dedication had originally been scheduled for last year, but typical Pacific Northwest weather prevailed. Brad Baunsgard was the first honoree, an M-P sophomore who passed away at the age of 16 in 1994 due to a boating accident. “It would be an understatement to say that Brad was gregarious, energetic, intelligent and athletic,” said Erickson, who lamented that the multiple-sport athlete’s talents were never fully realized, but noted that the Baunsgard family has kept his legacy alive through the Brad Baunsgard Scholarship, for senior boy and girl athletes. “The Marysville community, Marysville-Pilchuck High School and the scholarship recipients are deeply grateful for the ongoing generosity of the Baunsgard family.” The second nominee was

Steve Opel, a coach at M-P for more than 30 years, who coached his entire career at the Marysville School District before passing away in 2007 at the age of 72. “Coach Opel worked with both varsity and junior varsity baseball here at M-P, and his former players described him as a great coach to play for, someone who was able to keep the game both serious and fun at the same time,” Erickson said. “His Marysville baseball legacy continues through his sons, who are active in the youth coaching community.” The third and final honoree was the very first head coach of M-P baseball, whom Erickson credited with being largely responsible for building the field that’s now rededicated in his honor. Following a stint of playing AAA baseball in the New York Mets organization, Ray Ewing came to Marysville and served as one of the original Pilchuck High School faculty when the school was built in the 1970s. Ewing lost his battle with cancer in 2010, at the age of 62. “When M-P was born in 1975, Coach Ewing was the baseball coach, and held that position well into the ‘80s,” Erickson said. “Ray was a fixture at all M-P sporting events, an ardent supporter of his UW Huskies, and a dedicated member of the M-P teaching staff until his retirement.” All three men were represented on the ball-field by their surviving friends and family members.

April brings Healthy Kids Day, bike ride to YMCA BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Family YMCA’s events in April have been a study in contrasts. While the Marysville Y’s first “All-In Family Bike Ride” launched under the cold shadows of rainclouds on April 5, the return of the Y’s Healthy Kids Day was met with bright, warm sunshine on Saturday, April 26. Healthy Kids Day is designed to offer families a multifaceted take on health and wellness, by approaching diet and exercise through equal parts play and education. In the Marysville Y’s gym, the Adams siblings — 7-year-old Tanner, 5-yearold Kelcy and 10-year-old Mallary — were all equally enraptured by the tiny planters they received for their sunflower and pumpkin seeds, which they were encouraged to take home, so that they could continue to learn about plants and the rudiments of starting your own garden. While Zumba instructor Suzanne Barrett led an impromptu workout session on the other side of the gym, a whole host of community groups offered insights and advice on health and wellness in one of rooms typically set aside for fitness routines. Marysville Vision Source kept things playful but informative, by explaining the eye to young onlookers while also helping them craft their own oversized sunglasses, but 7-year-old Saturn Smith was in no mood to stand

Just outdoors, fellow 7-year-old Nathaiel Jackson was not nearly so skilled at the demonstration goals that had been set up for street hockey, but his father appreciated his energy nonetheless. “Families are of primary importance,” said Ronda Hardcastle, who serves as the health and well-being director for the Marysville Family YMCA. “Depending on how old the kids are, wherever they’re going and whatever they’re doing, it’s

the Marysville Y’s annual campaign to benefit its own members, it wound up generating $2,000 for the American Red Cross’ Oso relief funds. “While other Snohomish Ys have fun runs, we thought it would be different to address those who enjoy riding bikes,” Hardcastle said. “Our intent is to make this a large family event that people look forward to each year. In addition to the ride, we had games, music and activities for the kids to enjoy. The fun part is collecting a poker hand as you ride, since riders pick up cards at each water and food stop. The person with the best hand won a $100 Visa gift card.” While 80 riders signed up prior to the ride, and there were 10 more walk-ups, only about 50 riders went out on the routes, most of whom rode the 36- and 48-mile routes. “This was our inaugural event, and I know it will only get better,” Hardcastle said. “Feedback from the riders, to make the event even better, would be appreciated.”

their families who have to get them there, and it’s their families who feed them most of their meals, whether they’re home-cooked or they go out to eat. So for any health or well-being plan for the kids to succeed, their families have to be either part of it or supporting it.” “Research shows that, during the summer, kids are more likely to gain weight, and fall behind academically, than during the school year,” said Scott Washburn, president and CEO of the YMCA of Snohomish County. “Healthy Kids Day is not just a single day of fun, active play and learning. It’s a kickoff to helping parents get a jump on creating a healthier summer.” Hardcastle noted that the hearty souls who braved the elements to take part in the “All-In Family Bike Ride,” a poker ride along the Centennial Trail on April 5, already got a bit of a head-start on maintaining their health, not to mention showing their support for the survivors of the Oso slide.

Boom City Swap Meet returns to Tulalip BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

TULALIP — The expansive gravel parking lot at 10274 27th Ave. NE, just northeast of the Tulalip Resort Hotel and Casino, came alive with commerce for the fourth season in a row on Saturday, April 26, and Sunday, April 27, as those who ignored the weekend’s dismal weather forecasts were treated to unexpectedly sunny skies at the Boom City Swap Meet. Joe Whitney made his sales pitches with the enthusiastic volume of a carnival barker, drawing shoppers such as Wes Maleta, as well as Adrian Contreras and his son Cristibol, with his eclectic assortment of electronic goods and random household items. “I’ve got shoes for two dollars,” Whitney exclaimed. “I’ve got vacuum cleaners for $10, and DVD players for the same price, and if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, I’ve even got a Blu-ray player or two.” In spite of her self-professed nickname being the “Crazy Coupon Lady,” Lynnwood’s Debbie Gatti took more of a soft-sell approach to attracting customers. Then again, given that she’s been peddling her wares at the Boom City Swap Meet for three of the four years that it’s been in operation, she’s developed enough of a following that many of her customers now seek her out. “I’m always in stall H-9,” Gatti said, relaxing in her chair under the tent she placed over her multiple tables full of household goods, in anticipation of a rainfall that gladly never came. “That way, my customers always know exactly where I’m at.” Gatti acquired her moniker due to the fact that all of her items for sale were purchased with coupons, and as diverse as her selection is, when a prospective customer inquires about her

As for how many shoppers and browsers attended the event’s first weekend of the year, that’s just a matter of counting cars. “We charge $1 for each vehicle this year, and that Saturday, we had 888 cars come through,” Nielson said. “We didn’t charge on Sunday, but I’d still guess we saw 300 cars.” Nielson expects those numbers to double, at least, on Saturday, May 3, and Sunday, May 4.

ily from June 7 to July 11, to accommodate the Boom City fireworks vendors, the Boom City Swap Meet will reopen on Saturday, July 12, and remain open through early September. “The more vendors the public sees, the more they’ll come out,” Nielson said. “We have room for 200 vendors. Also, our food court is awesome. This coming weekend will see all of our regulars return, from snow cones and shaved ice to Hawaiian, Filipino and Mexican food, plus fry bread, sandwiches and more. We love being an attraction, and somewhere people can go and just have fun.” To reserve a space, vendors can sign up online at www.boomcityswapmeet. com or call 425-359-3864. Vendors will be charged $20 to rent a space. For more information, visit www.

Much of the school’s social studies learning targets involve understanding components of communities, citizenship and civic involvement, as well as government organization. During his presentation, Yanity sang tribal songs, played Native instruments, taught children about his tribe’s culture, and encouraged students to learn, accept and encourage each other in their community.

“A lot of people didn’t know we were open yet, and because the weatherman kept saying it would rain, they opted not to come this past weekend,” Nielson said. “Be sure to come on out this coming weekend, because it should be sunny.” The Boom City Swap Meet will be open on Saturdays and Sundays, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., and will welcome a variety of merchandise vendors, including producers of handmade arts and crafts, purveyors of antiques and 15 food vendors, including those serving up traditional Native American barbecue salmon. “We have our free bouncy house, a new clown who’s also a face-painter, and we’re looking into doing pony rides again,” Nielson said. “Those were a hit during our first two years.” After closing temporar-

1-800-743-6067 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

ARLINGTON — As part of their work to support the communities affected by the 530 landslide nearly six weeks ago, the Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation and United Way of Snohomish County announced recently that they are working together to expand their ongoing efforts to provide direct support to the Oso community. The Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation is giving $75,000 to the Oso Community Chapel, to help small businesses particularly hard hit by the closure of State Route 530. United Way of Snohomish County is giving $75,000 to the Oso Fireman’s Association Mudslide Fund, to help families and individuals affected by the 530 landslide. “This really means a lot. We still have families that are hurting, that have real needs. This will help us help our community for the long term,” said Oso Assistant Fire Chief Toby Hyde. “This grant from the Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation addresses the emerging need for economic relief for small businesses in Oso. We are delighted to participate in supporting our community,” said Barbara Tolbert, CVH Foundation president and Arlington Mayor. Both groups have already provided funds for Oso families through the Arlington Family Resource Project, which will start working closely with the Oso Fire Department to distribute funds locally. “When we met with Pastor Gary Ray, Chief John Harper and Assistant Chief Hyde last week, we learned that there was still a great need for direct help in Oso,” said Dennis Smith, president and CEO of United Way of Snohomish County. “We knew that the CVH Foundation had close ties to the community as well. Coordinating our efforts with them couldn’t have been easier.”

SEARCH FROM PAGE 1 has further complicated the search. When asked whether the remaining victims might not ever be recovered, Trenary admitted, “Unfortunately, that is possible, but I haven’t lost faith.” Gary Haakenson, the county’s executive director on public safety issues, listed the eight areas that county officials consider keys to

slide recovery, starting with the restoration of State Route 530, and including economic, natural and cultural, and social recovery, as well as the restoration of housing and infrastructure, with an eye on mental health and community planning. Although the current disaster recovery centers at the Oso Fire Station, the Arlington Department of Public Works and the Darrington Ranger District office will all close at the end of business on Saturday, May 10,

Haakenson promised that long-term recovery offices will open in Darrington and Arlington, with assistance from former Snohomish County Council member John Koster. “John is well known in this area,” Haakenson said. Advice for slide victims will also continue to be available on a Federal Emergency Management Agency help line at 800-621-FEMA (3362). Snohomish County Public Works Director Steve

Thomsen compared the rugged terrain of the slide site to a “moonscape,” but proudly touted the fact a recently completed 1,200foot temporary berm has allowed the reduction of 200 acres of ponding from the Stillaguamish River to 50 acres, with the aid of excavators. At the same time, Thomsen acknowledged that the 100-year flood plain for the area will need to be completely reconsidered, especially as river sediment is transported to new locations.

While Snohomish County Executive John Lovick pledged to work with Gov. Jay Inslee’s office on a joint independent commission of county and state officials, to review the actions that were taken both before and after the slide, Lovick nonetheless responded aggressively to allegations of delays in the various levels of government’s responses to the slide. “In my 44 years of public service, this is the most complex operation I’ve ever seen, and the agencies involved did

a tremendous job of bringing everyone together,” said Lovick, who characterized himself as “disappointed” by the allegations, before he quoted Dwight Eisenhower’s dictum that “Plans are nothing; planning is everything.” “Because of all the planning we had done, this county was prepared,” Lovick said.
