“When people think of Marysville, they think of the Tulalip Tribes and the Native Indians. They don’t think of the other Indians that are here.” JASBIR SANDHU, GURU NANAK SIKH TEMPLE

Harjit Singh Sandhu is poised to cleanse the air around the Guru Granth Sahib, the holy scripture of Sikhism, at the Guru Nanak Sikh Temple in Marysville.

MARYSVILLE — “When people think of Marysville, they think of the Tulalip Tribes and the Native Indians,” said Jasbir Sandhu at the Guru Nanak Sikh Temple in Marysville, before laughing, “They don’t think of the other Indians that are here.” The Guru Nanak Sikh Temple has welcomed members and visitors alike for the past nine years at its current location at 4919 61st St. NE in Marysville, and on May 1, area followers of the Sikh faith converged on the temple to observe Vaisakhi, one of the most significant holidays of the Sikh calendar. Satwant Pandher, president of the Guru Nanak Sikh Temple committee, explained that Vaisakhi marks the anniversary of the establishment of the Khalsa in India in 1699. The Khalsa refers to the collective body of

all baptized Sikhs, which was originally established by Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Guru. “It was a response to the forcible conversion of the Sikhs by the Muslims,” Pandher said. “It was the official birth of the Sikh religion as it exists today.” Pandher acknowledged that Sikhs are sometimes mistaken for Muslims, but he emphasized that Sikhism and Islam are entirely different religions. Vaisakhi is preceded by the continuous reading of the Guru Granth Sahib, the holy scripture of Sikhism, for 48 hours, after which Sikhs from throughout the Puget Sound region came to the Guru Nanak Sikh Temple in Marysville to sing hymns, make offerings, partake of free meals, and share conversation and fellowship.

‘Giving Gardens’ help those in need BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — Students, professional gardeners and other community members are once again teaming up to provide some fresh produce to those in need. For the past two years the Marysville Community Food Bank has encouraged citizens to plant rows for the hungry, growing their own “Giving Gardens,” while Marysville high school students have tended to a community garden adjacent to the Sunnyside Nursery on an almost weekly basis. As an admittedly inhospitable spring slowly turns into a slightly warmer summer, SEE GARDENS, PAGE 2

SIKHS FROM PAGE 1 floor, priests spoke to attendees about the historic importance of the occasion, while children recited from essays

they’d written, some in the Punjabi language, reflecting on their cultural heritage. The temple is open to anyone, Sikh and nonSikhs alike, who removes their shoes and dons

scarves, bandanas or other head covers upon entering. According to Pandher, the all-volunteer kitchen on the temple’s ground floor reflects the Sikh commitment to hospitality and charity as

much as the ceremonial changing of the Nishan Sahib, the Sikh holy flag, and the Chola, the cloth covering its flagpole. “When travelers saw the flag on a temple, they knew they would find free food and shelter for a few days there,” said Pandher, as diners sat on rugs and received regular refills of traditional Indian curry dishes from servers. “We are a very peaceful people. We believe in being selfsufficient, so we don’t go on welfare, and we try to get our citizenship as soon as possible. About 70 percent of the members of our temple are

U.S. citizens.” “Our faith fights for others,” Marysville’s Parminder Dhaliwal said. “We’re here for all cultures and all religions.” “Everyone is welcome here, no matter what their religion,” said Gagan Manhas, an 18-year-old MarysvillePilchuck High School graduate who’s now attending the University of Washington. “We don’t persecute anyone for their beliefs.” Fellow Marysville resident Suman Dhillon proudly described her fellow Sikhs are “brave people who help others,”

while Arlington’s Sukhpal Bhangoo appreciates her fellow Sikhs for being “very kind people who are always forgiving. We have a lot of history.” Bhangoo’s children have learned some of that history in Punjabi classes at the Guru Nanak Sikh Temple. “It’s a way of keeping in touch with my culture,” said Mandeep Sran of Marysville, before the temple’s flagpole was washed with milk and water. “I live in a different country, but I don’t want to forget where I came from. At the same time, I meet all kinds of different people here.”


Nursery staff member Melissa Volk was quick to share that credit with the students and teachers of the International School of Communications at Marysville Getchell High School. “DeJong Sawdust and Shavings dropped off the soil and Consolidated Landscapes shaped it into beds,” Volk said. “The garden also has a nice sign that was donated by Vinyl Signs and Banners last year. The high school students started work on the garden in a space that we weren’t using.” ISC teachers Emily Lefstad and Janice Clancy have coordinated the students’ efforts, but they attribute the garden’s everincreasing yields of donated vegetables to the commitment of the approximately 50 student volunteers themselves.

“It’s nice to get a little dirty to help the community,” said Colin Sanders, an ISC junior who returned to the garden this year. “I wanted to see what it was like,” said Elizabeth Holiway, an ISC freshman who came out to the garden for the first time on April 30. “It’s been muddy so far,” she laughed. “These kids have generated more than 5,000 pounds of produce over the years,” said Volk, who noted that Smith will be providing an extra incentive for Sunnyside Nursery customers to grow “Giving Gardens” for the food bank. In honor of Sunnyside’s 63rd anniversary, anyone who drops off 63 pounds of homegrown produce to the food bank will receive a $25 gift certificate for 2012 at Sunnyside. “The food bank will take down their names and addresses, and keep records of their contributions,” Volk said. “As not all gardeners ask for records, people should be careful to make sure their names and pounds of homegrown donations get written down with each drop-off if they want to be eligible for Sunnyside gift certificates. Early next year, we’ll get the names of people who have made the mark of 63 pounds over this season, and we’ll write out the $25 vegetable gardening gift certificates and give the food bank stamped envelopes to send off before the growing season kicks into gear.” Sunnyside Nursery is located at 3915 Sunnyside Blvd. in Marysville and can be reached at 425-334-2002. The Marysville Community Food Bank is located at 4150 88th St. NE and can be reached at 360-6581054.

these volunteers are sowing their seeds once more. “The last two years I’ve had three plots at the community garden where I grew veggies for the food bank,” said JoAnn Sewell, who coordinates volunteers for the Marysville Community Food Bank and runs its “Giving Gardens” program. “This year, I’m going to do six. In the two years this program has been running, it’s proven to be a great success but a lot of people still don’t know that they can donate their homegrown produce to the food bank.” Sewell credited Steve Smith and his staff at the Sunnyside Nursery with helping tremendously, starting with their donation of the land for the community garden, while Sunnyside

Residents invited to attend Marysville University classes MARYSVILLE — Marysville University invites you to register for a free one-night civics class that will provide attendees with an opportunity to help the Parks and Recreation Department develop its next comprehensive plan to articulate the vision, future goals and strategies for the parks system. Marysville University will meet from 6:30-9 p.m. on Wednesday, May 18, in the Council Chambers, 2nd Floor in City Hall, 1049 State Ave. Information gathered at this community class will help elected officials, the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and staff identify short-term and long-term community

needs to keep pace with our growing city, manage resources and provide quality park and recreation services for the benefit of individuals, communities and the environment, says Jim Ballew, Parks and Recreation Director. The evening will kick off with an overview of the Parks and Recreation Department as shared by recreation services, classes, athletics and maintenance staff. The night will then give attendees time to complete a vital Parks and Recreation needs survey that was mailed to 500 randomly-selected community members in April. “MU provides an informal classroom-style forum that brings people from

the community together to gain a better understanding of how their local government functions, inspires them to become part of the solution-seeking process, and informs them about City programs, services and projects,” said Mayor Jon Nehring, who reinstituted the classes last fall. Please call City Hall at 360-363-8091 by May 11 to reserve your seat, or email Executive Asst. Lynn Schroeder at lschroeder@ Be sure to include name, phone, address and email address.

M-P hosts concert for Young Life MARYSVILLE — The Marysville-Pilchuck High School auditorium will host a concert to help support at-risk area children. Hannah Michelle Weeks is a recording artist and songwriter who’s shared stages with country music stars Kenny Chesney, Darius Rucker, Rodney Atkins and Eric Church, and on May 20 starting at 7 p.m., the M-PHS auditorium will serve as the stage for her benefit concert for Young Life of North Snohomish County. Mark Wagner will open the show for Weeks, and has performed with artists such as Brandon Heath, Paul Wright and Rachel Lampa. Wagner has sung in front of thousands of high school students during his volunteer work with Young Life, an organization that he believes can give hope to the hopeless. “This is where my heart is at,” Weeks said of her work for programs that support teens and young adults. “Experiencing kids opening up

about their lives has been amazing, and has played a big part in shaping who I am.” This show will help send middle school and high school kids to camp this summer at Washington Family Ranch Creekside and the Malibu Club in Canada. Young Life is a nonprofit organization that provides high-risk kids in those age groups with adult mentors, with whom they can build positive, lasting relationships and invest in their own lives. Through these relationships, they also share the gospel. This summer, the program will send 133 kids to camp, and aims to offer scholarships to those kids who wouldn’t be able to afford it otherwise. North Snohomish County Young Life is currently active in Marysville, Arlington, Stanwood, Lakewood, Granite Falls and the Tulalip reservation. General-admission tickets are available online at There will be no reserved seating.

Serving up a taste of the South BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

LAKEWOOD — The Lakewood High School Drama Department will be bringing a taste of Southern-fried culture to their auditorium this month, when they stage two weekend showings of “Steel Magnolias” as a student play. LHS seniors Tasha Bartol, Karen Christiansen and Britney Martin will be joined by juniors Kristina Ryan, Kaitlin Jones and Melody Costley in recreating the famous cinematic classic of female bonding in hair salons, and according to drama teacher Rebecca Winsor, it’s already been a rewarding experience for all involved. “The last time I staged this play was in 1999 in Chesapeake, Va.,” said Winsor, a self-described “li’l ol’ Southern gal” who’s since made the Pacific Northwest her home. “I used tapes of my own Southern accent to help the girls get a feel for it, so that they can stay in character and maintain their accents through the play.” Although some of the girls have struggled not to let their accents drop at certain points, Winsor praised them all for doing very well, and singled out Bartol in particular for the authenticity of the Southern drawl that she’s created. “Tasha hasn’t had any problems,” Winsor said. “I spotted her two years ago in one of my classes and knew that I wanted to work with her. All of these girls have been great to work with. They’re very capable, reliable and talented.” Winsor has had plenty of time to develop a rapport with her performers, since three of them have worked with her for three years on school plays, and Jones is the only student whom Winsor hadn’t worked with before “Steel Magnolias.” After audi-

tions on March 7-8, the cast hit the ground running with rehearsals starting March 10. The LHS Drama Department will perform “Steel Magnolias” starting at 7 p.m. on May 13, 14, 20 and 21. While the play alone runs for $7 a ticket, or $5 with an ASB card, the May 21 showing offers a tasty bonus. Those who show up to the LHS auditorium that night at 5:30 p.m. and pay $25 per ticket will be treated to dinner and a show, courtesy of Church Lady’s Catering, which is run by Christiansen’s mother. Those who pay for the 5:30 p.m. dinner will receive front-row seating for the 7 p.m. show, and will get to choose from a menu of authentic Southern cuisine including barbecued chicken. The LHS auditorium is located at 17023 11th Ave. NE in Arlington.

Before taking too much water, ensure it’s there


basic rule of natural resources management today is that you don’t take too much of something unless you have a good idea how much there is to begin BILLY FRANK, JR. with. That was the point behind the Squaxin Island Tribe’s effort to protect water resources in the Johns Creek watershed, and a Thurston County Superior Court judge recently agreed. The tribe had petitioned the state twice in two years to stop water withdrawals in the Johns Creek basin until scientific information could be gathered to determine impacts from the multiplying wells. The state said it just couldn’t do that. Budget problems, they said. For as much as we don’t know about how much water is available in the small Johns Creek watershed, there’s no doubt that the creek is mostly fed by groundwater in the basin. Flows in Johns Creek have dropped steadily since records started being kept in the 1950s, and every year the shortage has increased. Since 1984 when its stream flow was formally protected, more than 200 “permit-exempt” wells have been drilled close to Johns Creek. State law allows these wells to be drilled without a permit and pump up to 5,000 gallons of water a day. Decades ago this type of well provided homeowners and others with easier access to water. Today those wells number in the thousands in western Washington and more are being drilled all the time. “While we seek cooperation first in all of our natural resources management efforts, there are times when we must go to court to protect our culture and treaty rights.” That’s what my friend, Andy Whitener, natural resources director for the Squaxin Island Tribe, had to say. He’s right; this was one of those times. Our treaty rights include the right of protection of natural resources. We will not stand by as those rights and resources are threatened. The Legislature should provide the necessary funding for the state department of Ecology’s water resources mapping and assessment program. The money would be used to create comprehensive maps that would allow more science-based decision making about water availability. This would help avoid the kind of litigation that Squaxins were forced to take. The fees necessary to support such an effort would add only about $200 to drilling a well, a small amount when you consider the investment in a new well is often more than $10,000. A couple hundred bucks per well isn’t too much to ask for the kind of information we need to make responsible decisions about how much water we’re taking out of the ground. About half of all us who live here in Washington rely on groundwater for our drinking water. That’s a lot of people who deserve to know how much water they have. The Legislature should help make that happen.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR A call of support to the residents of Marysville Saturday, May 14, is the annual Letter Carriers Food Drive. The donations raised through this event provide a major portion of the food required to serve Marysville families in need throughout the summer. Last year thirty-two thousand pounds of non-perishable food was gathered during the drive, 8,000 pounds short of the 2009 figure. With the volume of families visiting the Food Bank up 5 percent for the year to date, it is important for the community to rally together this year to ensure our neighbors are fed. Your support is greatly appreciated. Dell Deierling Director, Marysville Community Food Bank

Don’t miss upcoming forums at PAC I recently read some survey results provided by the Snohomish Health District about the health habits of sixth, eighth, tenth, and 12th-grade students in Snohomish County. Use of alcohol and marijuana is still very prevalent; bullying is definitely an issue for our youth and statistically one-fifth of tenth graders reported they considered suicide in the past year. On Sept. 24, 2009 my husband and I received the phone call in the middle of the night that every parent fears: the call from someone telling you your child has

died. Our 22-year-old daughter Jessica had taken her own life. My daughter didn’t have a history of depression, didn’t drink or do drugs, and was never bullied or mistreated by family or friends. She was a very high achiever and had just graduated with honors from WSU. But just when she started a master’s program at the U. of W. a storm of negative feelings and extreme anxiety overcame her in a very short period. She spiraled into a state of extreme panic and she was not capable of pulling herself out from it. We couldn’t comprehend how this horrific tragedy could have happened. We have since learned that suicide is the third leading cause of death in youth between the ages of 19-24 and that a suicidal state can come on quickly and suicidal actions can be impulsive. At upcoming free forums information will be presented about risk factors that may lead to suicide. If you have children or interact with youth in your life, please consider attending these forums in May where talented speakers will educate our community about the following topics at the Byrnes Performing Arts Center in Arlington, 18821 Crown Ridge Blvd. from 7:00-830 p.m.: ■ Abuse of Alcohol, Street and Prescription Drugs — Wed., May 11. ■ Bullying and Violence - Its Forms and Effects — Thurs., May 12. ■ Self-Esteem – Depression – Anxiety Attacks – Expectations — Wed., May 25. ■ Abusive or Violent Relationships: Dating, Family, or Friends — Thurs., May 26.

Childcare will be available for children ages 3-12. I encourage you to educate yourself about our youth’s emotional, physical, and psychological health. I would not have thought any of these forum topics applied to my child or family just as you might not think any of these topics apply to your child. That may or may not be true, but what about all the other youth you may also interface with in our community? Come to these forums and find information and resources applicable to helping youth in our communities. Joan Frable Arlington

Don’t bite the hand that feeds you Paraphrasing JFK, “Ask not what Boeing can do for you, ask what you can do for Boeing.” In a stunning move, the National Labor Relations Board, a “neutral” government arbiter in labor/ management disputes, has sued Boeing. Why? Because Boeing had the audacity to build a second production line in S. Carolina, a “right to work” state. So why isn’t the NLRB suing the state of Washington or the unions who through their actions have made Washington a hostile business environment? Why isn’t the government offering tax credits to Boeing for creating more U.S. jobs just like it does to GE for laying off U.S. workers in favor of creating more jobs in China?

Working for a cleaner, safer community

ike clockwork, the first signs of the warmer, sunnier weather of spring and summer in Marysville awaken the active spirit in our community, as families, neighbors and outdoor enthusiasts get out and enjoy local parks, trails and sidewalk shopping. Unfortunately, this is also the time of year when Marysville, like many other communities, sees a pickup in graffiti, vandalism and general disorderly activity. It is frustrating and disgusting to see this, since we all want a cleaner, more attractive and livable community. The city through its Police and Parks and Recreation departments, Code Enforcement Office, Graffiti Task Force and leadership from elected leaders have all taken a proactive stance in responding to these quality of life issues. We have made remarkable headway in recent years, and we are continually adopting new approaches and activities to address these problems. But we need help, and that’s where you come in. We need to work together to curb these senseless crimes before they proliferate throughout the city and become an ever bigger problem. You can be an extra set of eyes and ears for our police. Be vigilant when you are out using parks, trails and enjoying the outdoors this spring and summer, as well as in your own neighborhood. If you witness an act of graffiti, vandalism or suspicious activity that might be vandalism, or you have information that can help catch the perpetrators, please call 911 immediately so that police can respond. Gather as much information as possible – time, date, place, suspect and

vehicle description. Photos are helpful, too. Graffiti is a serious problem that negatively impacts commerce, reduces property values, creates blight and increases the propensity for gang-related activity. The city has been aggressive in education and enforcement efforts that have cracked down on graffiti and tagging, but it remains a problem. Graffiti and vandalism are a sight that has become too common in recent summers. For Marysville, the damage adds up to an ugly, expensive problem. In 2010, it cost city taxpayers more than $22,250 to address property damage caused by vandals — this does not take into account the costs associated with law enforcement and code enforcement response. The City Council has spent a great deal in recent years to develop parks, trails and provide important community facilities. Destruction of parks and parks equipment add an extra cost burden on you, the taxpayer. This year, through efforts of the city’s hard-working Graffiti Task Force, various departments and the City Attorney’s Office, we have developed some new initiatives to deal with graffiti and vandalism. Graffiti usually pops up in public places such as on playground equipment and street signs. Another common spot for graffiti is on homeowners’ fences

LETTERS FROM PAGE 6 government’s opinion of business. GE’s favorable tax credits in spite of destroying U.S. jobs, may have a lot to do with its donations to particular politicians. So, why do politicians, union employees and union management insist on “biting the hand that feeds them?” Politicians, Boeing employees, and all other concerned citizens who depend on a healthy business environment should be begging to speak to Boeing executives about how to keep Boeing jobs in the great Northwest. Why aren’t these same individuals “shutting down Olympia” in protest to get laws and regulations to help Boeing create new jobs and products in the Northwest? Wouldn’t that better serve the unions and their employees? There will be politicians who will claim to have “saved your job today” but who will not tell you that they “destroyed your job tomorrow” because they support this government intrusion. Why does Boeing have to spend a dime

facing streets. Graffiti and the blight it creates is self-perpetuating — if it isn’t removed promptly (within 24-48 hours), studies show that the frequency and amount will increase. City laws in force since 2007 require removal from property within 48 hours of the city receiving notice of a violation. The city realizes that this can place an undue burden on homeowners. To that end, the city is reaching over the fence to help neighbors get rid of graffiti speedily in order to deter recurring graffiti vandalism from becoming a lingering eyesore. Under a new Graffiti Abatement Program, the city will ensure removal of graffiti from fences at no expense to homeowners. The main focus is fences that are visible from streets and high-traffic areas prone to attacks by taggers and graffiti vandals. In order to participate, residents must sign a Consent to Enter Onto Property to Abate Graffiti granting city workers permission to enter the homeowner’s property to remove future graffiti from their fences at no cost. Essentially, city workers only need access to frontage outside the fence facing a street. A letter also accompanies the form asking residents to choose from three colors of paint that will best match their fence. The city’s Code Enforcement Officer has already mailed the information to more than 200 homes. If you are interested, visit the city website at to download the forms, then mail or drop them off at the City Community Development Department, 80 Columbia Ave. The city is also planning to fight back against graffiti through

Education shouldn’t be a game of chance Marysville School District has eight small learning communities (SLC) that serve high school students. The eight SLCs are International School of Communication, School for the Entrepreneur, Bio Med, Academy of Construction and Engineering, Pathways of Choice, Marysville Mountain View, Arts and Technology and Heritage. Each SLC community specializes in unique core classes geared toward specific industry. Example: If you are interested in business your SLC of choice would be School for the Entrepreneur. The SLCs are not equal; the curriculum focus and electives are different for each SLC.

a first-ever community-wide Graffiti Paint Out. Join the city of Marysville, active duty members of Navy Recruiting District — Seattle and others as we mobilize neighbors to eliminate graffiti “hot spots” around our community. Volunteers will gather at 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 16 in the Cedarcrest Middle School north parking lot, 6400 88th St. NE, to receive painting materials and location assignments that will direct them to several places around Marysville and street-side fences where homeowners have been victimized. We want this event to send a clear message to graffiti vandals and taggers that our community has zero tolerance for graffiti. We hope you will join us in eradicating the unsightly blight that it creates along streets and in our neighborhoods. To sign up for the Graffiti Paint Out, or other volunteer opportunities, contact Parks Maintenance Manager Mike Robinson at 360-363-8406 or e-mail You can also visit our website any time to report graffiti using our Graffiti Online Reporting Form, which also lets you attach photos of the damage, helpful intelligence for police and city workers who can respond with cleanup. Police and Parks officials have one more added tool this summer to address issues that occur in our parks system. A Park Code was developed and adopted into the Marysville Municipal Code by way of the Park Board and City Council. These new laws and policies will let park visitors and families recreate more enjoyably knowing

Each year the school district asks current eighth-grade students to review each of the eight SLC curriculums and choose their top three choices. Students not only have to think about what classes interest them, they have to think about career choices. The district provides information to parents and students through pamphlets and information fairs. Once the student make their choices they complete their SLC form and turn it in; the district then assigns each student an number and these numbers are plugged into a computer-driven lottery. Students do not decide where they will attend, the lottery does. The lottery has made education a game of chance. If the student is unhappy with the SLC given they can file an in-district transfer. Transfers are only honored as space becomes available; if space does not become available students remain in the SLC given regardless of preference. Never does MSD consider why the student made their first choice or ask what courses at the SLC they need to gain academic rigor. MSD is requesting that eighth-grade students make challenging choices about their future career paths and spend the next four years


that police and Parks personnel have more tools now to deal with vandals, trouble-makers and scofflaws who can disrupt an otherwise pleasant day at the park. The code covers several areas of concern including defacing of property, littering, unleashed or abandoned animals, weapons, and trespassing by scofflaws who have already been banned from a park or are there after closing hours. The laws help police officials and park administration in enforcing current policies, and establish civil infractions and police enforcement and/ or administrative sanctions that can range from expulsion from a park for a week, up to a year for more than two offenses, or harsher penalties. Violators are subject to a civil infraction and police enforcement and/or administrative sanctions, with immediate expulsion from a park ranging from a seven-day ban for a first offense, 90 days a second time, and a year for more than two offenses. A wide range of illegal disorderly behavior can turn a park into an unwelcome, unattractive and ultimately unsafe public space that carries added public safety and park maintenance costs. As a community, we must not tolerate the senseless activity of graffiti and vandalism. Let’s work together to address these ongoing problems, to ensure that our neighborhoods and parks are clean, attractive and safe places where families and kids can relax and enjoy a better quality of life. Mayor Jon Nehring can be reached at

studying in this pathway; however there are no safeguards to make sure each student receives the needed curriculum to attain their future goals. Marysville School District states in No. 7 of its vision statement, “We believe that it is critical to ensure that all students are prepared for work and post secondary education and training.” Yet you can be an eighth-grade student who has met the challenge to think about your future, made a definitive decision and not receive the SLC of choice. They ask that you compromise your goals, settle for coursework and classes that were adequate but not geared towards the academic rigor you requested. When you serve 3,200 high school students with about 800 of them freshmen the lottery is a necessity, but Marysville School District needs to stand back and review their SLC selection form and the lottery procedure. MSD needs to amend its procedures to ensure that every student is the lucky winner of the lottery. Laurie Dunston Marysville

Marysville Mayor honors Dan Steffen

MARYSVILLE — Mayor Jon Nehring is proud to announce Dan Steffen as community Volunteer of the Month for April for his volunteer coaching and mentoring of students in the Marysville-Pilchuck High School NJROTC air rifle marksmanship program, and his leadership with the Marysville Kiwanis Club. “In Marysville, we have become accustomed to hearing about the stellar achievements of outstanding cadets in the NJROTC program at MarysvillePilchuck High School,” Mayor Jon Nehring said at the April 25 City Council meeting where Steffen was honored. It is less common, he said, to hear about the adults and mentors behind the NJROTC program that instill in cadets responsibility, commitment to community service, respect for

authority and a chance to development leadership qualities. Steffen is one of these mentors. Steffen, who was nominated by NJROTC Cmdr. Randy Brasfield, (U.S. Navy Retired), has “gone above and beyond expectations to earn this honor,” said the Mayor. Steffen has served as a volunteer air rifle coach for the NJROTC Air Rifle Team for three years. During the competitive season from October to June, Steffens volunteers 36-48 hours a month, with team practices up to four hours a day four times a week, with occasional day-long shoulderto-shoulder competitions. Outside the competitive season, Steffen helps to improve the range and maintain unit air rifles. Steffens brings a level of marksmanship experi-

ence that few people have, Nehring said. His coaching experience reaches into Olympic and national level competitions, and he is able to provide marksmanship participants with fine tuning that improves their scores to competitive levels. Through coaching and training that Steffens offers, cadets gain the expertise to expand their marksmanship skills by recognizing problem areas and providing solutions that increase their scores, Nehring said. The self-confidence, selfdiscipline, time management and life skills the students pick up along the way carry over into school and home. In other community service, Steffen serves as President of the Marysville Kiwanis Club. He and wife Vicki, also a Kiwanis member, were joined by a half dozen club members at Steffen’s recognition ceremony. Kiwanis has partnered with the City in numerous ways over the years. Kiwanis Pond in Jennings Park, site of the annual Fishing Derby on May 7, bears their name, as does a small park in the Soper Hill-Sunnyside area. Some of the group’s more

Reflecting on a lifetime in forestry BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

ARLINGTON — Earl Ingebright’s devotion to forestry can be measured in decades. The 93-year-old first purchased what would become the Valhalla Tree Farm in 1959 as a summer home, but it wasn’t until 1993 that he began tree-farming in earnest, 20 years after he’d retired from the U.S. Postal Service. “I was always interested in forestry, and I even went to college for it at the University of Washington,” Ingebright said. “My ambition was to be a forest ranger, and I only started working at the Post Office parttime, until I realized that I was making more money there than I would in the Forest Service.” As a newlywed at the time, taking care of his family took precedence. Ingebright has been married to his wife Laurine for 73 years, and as their children have grown up, the family has been able to help take care of the now-75-acre tree farm. Earl and 58-yearold David live on the farm,

for which they applied for farm certification. Earl and David wrote a forest stewardship management plan and took a forestry class from the Washington State University Extension office in Mill Creek in order to be considered for the title of Washington State Outstanding Tree Farmers of the Year by the Washington Farm Forestry Association, a title which the Ingebrights won last year. “He had a great time here as a kid, since it had places he could dig holes and go fishing,” Earl Ingebright said of his son. “As he grew up, he took an interest in taking those courses.” Expanding and developing the property in the years prior to its inauguration had given Earl Ingebright experience with clear-cutting trees and planting replacement seedlings, during which he took care to prune away the surrounding vegetation for at least five years after their planting. Valhalla has had three harvests since becoming a tree farm, and its diversity of terrain has made it especially important that Ingebright choose the trees most suited to each

area. “It goes from moist and swampy to dry and rocky,” Ingebright said. “Part of our management plan was making sure we were matching the right types of trees and soils. I plant western red cedar seedlings in the wet parts of the land, because Douglas fir doesn’t do so well there. The Department of Natural Resources has been great about sharing their knowledge with us. If you’re at all serious about forestry, you should take the WSU class. I thought I knew some things about forestry before, but I found out that I didn’t know much.” Ingebright uses an all-terrain cart to survey his own property, which often hosts church and youth group meetings, but his age hasn’t slowed him down. “It’s improved my health,” Ingebright said. “I’m more active than I would be otherwise. I just love the outdoors.” The WSU Extension Puget Sound Forest Stewardship program is staging its spring social in Everett on May 13, and has already opened registration for its fall Forest Stewardship Coached

According to analysis of data involving 2,635 women in the United States aged 18 to 64 years, women who gave birth to more children tended to lose more teeth. This was found to be true regardless of socioeconomic status. A probable cause for the increase in tooth loss among mothers is the gingivitis that women are more prone to during pregnancy. If left untreated, this buildup in bacteria between the teeth and gums can lead to more serious gum disease and, eventually, tooth loss. Moreover, women may be less likely to visit the dentist while pregnant. Being a woman is extraordinary, fun and fulfilling, but it’s not always easy. A woman’s body goes through so many changes that good oral hygiene is especially important. In addition to comfortable relaxing surroundings and timely and efficient service, the office of Beth A.

M-P girls golf tees off on the competition BY SCOTT FRANK

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville-Pilchuck girls golf team continued its undefeated and league-leading record with a victory in the final league match, May 5, and are looking forward to

the conference, districts and state championships. “Right now our goal is to win as a team at the Conference Championship, which we should if you look at our numbers,” said coach Jaci LeGore Hodgins. “We have the most girls ranked with the highest amount of points.”

As of May 5, all six of M-P’s girls varsity golfers are ranked in the Top 20 of the Wesco North League. Abby Beauchamp is ranked second with 134 points, Kelsey Colmore is seventh with 118 points, Courtney Burdett is ninth with 114 points, Stephanie English is 10th with 113 points,

Sarah Newland is 14th with 97 points and Ashley Tande is 16th with 77. Beauchamp, Colmore and Burdett are all seniors who have played all four years of golf at Marysville-Pilchuck. “Abby has been playing since she was 9 years old and has played

Washington State Junior Golf her sophomore and junior seasons,” said LeGore Hodgins. “Courtney and Kelsey are athletic girls who have greatly improved their games and are having great senior seasons.” SEE GOLF, PAGE 13

Local mountain bikers among the best in the state KIRK BOXLEITNER

LAKEWOOD — Most of the members of the new Lakewood High School Mountain Bike Club started without a cycling background, according to head coach Kristi Berg, but in two months’ time, they progressed from learning the basics of mountain biking to racing successfully enough to be recognized as among the best in the state. On May 1, the seven-member team of Lakewood, Marysville and Arlington students went to Joint Base Lewis-McChord to compete in the inaugural Washington State High School Mountain Bike Championships, and out of the 22 teams that had registered in the Washington state National Interscholastic Cycling Association

“They’re really good kids who just like to be outside. It’s been fun creating the team and seeing kids who didn’t know each other start to become friends and have something in common.”

Kristi Berg, head coach Lakewood High School Mountain Bike Club this year, the composite Lakewood, Marysville and Arlington team placed third overall. “The girls raced 12K, while the boys raced 16K, on a course that consisted of dirt trails and paths that constantly changed in elevation, with short, steep, punchy climbs and white-knuckle descents,” Berg said. “We are really proud of the kids on this team. What a first-year season.” Lakewood High School freshman Nicolle Ayers placed fifth for

the girls, followed by Arlington High School freshman Hannah Mendro in sixth and LHS freshman Jessica Scott in ninth. For the boys, Marysville’s Tyler Carr, a freshman at the Montessori School, placed eighth, followed by LHS seniors A.J. Cope in ninth and Eddie Mitchell in 15th. Mitchell finished the race with only his front brake, Courtesy Photo after losing his rear brake halfway through the first lap. Tyler Carr keeps control as he rattles down the rough dirt paths of the Washington State High School Mountain Bike Championships at Joint Base SEE BIKERS, PAGE 13 Lewis-McChord.

May 11, 2011

BIKERS FROM PAGE 12 Although thrice-weekly practices quickly helped the kids build their ability to handle their bikes off-road, a few of them have had to borrow bikes that are safe enough to ride in such conditions, as they save up to buy new bikes from team sponsors Stanwood Velo Sport in Arlington. Berg also credited Action Sports in Arlington with assisting the team with bikes, parts and equipment, and team clothing. She praised both businesses for making the team’s accomplishments possible through “their dedicated support,” and likewise characterized the team itself as surmounting its challenges through positive attitudes and mutual support. “They’re all really good kids who just like to be outside,” Berg said. “It’s been fun creating the team and seeing kids who didn’t know each other start to become friends and have something in common. Unfortunately, with budget cuts and the poor economy, kids are not getting as many opportunities to participate in sports, as programs are dropped and high gas prices limit transportation to events.” Berg sees cycling as a productive response to such circum-

stances, not only by developing greater physical fitness, but also by giving students another avenue for transportation to and from school and work. “And cycling is something that you can continue to do at a recreational level, or racing, after high school and college in our local communities,” Berg said. “It’s a sport you can continue for the rest of your life.” Because this was the team’s first year, its shortened season has included only two races so far, but Berg anticipates her young cyclists will take part in four races from March through May of next year. On May 22 of this year, they’ll be conducting a four-hour “Mile-a-Thon” fundraiser, to help compensate the kids for the fees and costs they’ve paid by pushing them to complete as many miles as they can. “There are also local races throughout the state that we’ll encourage the kids to compete in on their own, to keep up their fitness throughout the summer,” Berg said. If you are interested in sponsoring the team or learning more, email Berg at kristi@ More information about the Washington State High School Mountain Bike League can be found at www.

With a mix of experience and youth, LeGore Hodgins credits three things with making the team so good — a combination of confidence, golf experience, and determination. “We have six strong leaders,” said LeGore Hodgins. “They know has to stay cool and that’s a big part of golf. You don’t panic and you manage your game one shot at a time.” After the Conference Championships are the District Championships from which the top 14 golfers move on to the State Championships. “We have a reputation of being a strong team,” said LeGore Hodgins. “In the mid2000s we had three girls qualify for state but that hasn’t happened since 2005., so we’ve gone since years without that happening.” She pointed out that in the past couple of years M-P had two girls qualify for state every year, “so our goal is to get three or four girls to state this year.” Another goal for the team is to have their No. 1 player, Beauchamp, make it into the second round at state. “Abby has always played in the first round but hasn’t made the cut,” said LeGore Hodgins. “Last year she missed the cut by one stroke so we’re working toward ensuring Abby makes the cut and plays in the second round of state, that would be a real victory.” But whatever happens, the coach is thankful for having such a great group of girls on the team. “It’s just such a wonderful group of people,” said LeGore Hodgins. “We are blessed to have such a strong connection, it is really special.”

Arlington named ‘Tree City’

ARLINGTON — For the ninth year, the city of Arlington has been named a Tree City USA community, by the Arbor Day Foundation, for its commitment to urban forestry. The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the nonprofit Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service. Arlington has once again met the four standards to become

a Tree City USA community. Such communities must have a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation. “We commend Arlington’s elected officials, volunteers and citizens for providing vital care for its urban forest,” said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. “Trees pro-

vide numerous environmental, economic and health benefits to millions of people each day, and we applaud communities that make planting and caring for trees a top priority.” In addition to meeting the four standards, communities that earn Tree City USA recognition know that trees: ■ Promote healthier communities by filtering the air we breathe, by removing dust and other particles.

■ Moderate climate, conserve water and provide vital habitat for wildlife. ■ Reduce the heat island effect in urban areas caused by pavement and buildings. ■ Increase property values, reduce energy use and add beauty to our homes and neighborhoods. More information about Tree City USA can be found at TreeCityUSA.

Projects such as the April 9 Country Charm tree planting have once again earned the city of Arlington the title of a Tree City USA community.

Arlington resident goes off the grid BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

ARLINGTON — Boeing engineer Tom Flandro wanted to get off the grid and wean himself from foreign oil dependency, so when he was able to convert his twostory home to solar power and purchase an electric car, he took advantage of the opportunity. Flandro explained that the Snohomish County PUD’s “Solar Express” program offers home owners a choice between a cash incentive of up to $2,500 for preapproved, qualified new solar panel systems, or a low-interest loan of up to $25,000 to finance the installation of the solar panel system, instead of the cash incentive. “With everything that’s going

on today, I can’t help wondering why everyone doesn’t do this,” said Flandro, who laughed as he acknowledged that the rainy Pacific Northwest might seem like a counterintuitive location for a solar-powered home. “Yes, it’s very cloudy here, but because of our latitude, the sun stays out longer during the summer months, which actually makes us more competitive than the traditional ‘sun belt’ of places like New Mexico and Arizona.” Flandro pointed out that these PUD “meter credits” from the spring and summer months can be used during the darker autumn and winter months. Northwest Wind & Solar installed the 22 SolarWorld modules with Enphase Microinverters, which are expect-

ed to generate approximately 5,000 kilowatt hours per year. “Since the solar panels were finished being installed about a month ago, the electrical bill for my house has gone from $100 a month to literally nothing,” Flandro said. “Since I bought my Nissan Leaf three weeks ago, I’ve already saved about $200 in gas money, what with gas shooting up to $4 a gallon. My Mustang gets 22 miles to the gallon, and I’d easily drain that tank within a week.” Flandro recharges the Leaf with a charger that he received government funding to install in his garage. He explained that each charge will last about 100 miles, and a completely drained battery can be recharged to 100 percent within seven hours, so he just

Pleasing your spouse requires that you first learn what pleases your spouse, is it any different with God? Sometimes the things we do “for God” are really just things we do because we enjoy them, like the fellow who got his wife a new fishing pole for her birthday when what she really wanted was jewelry.

The benefits of exercise bands

hile experimenting with exercise bands, how many of you have gotten frustrated and now use them in place of bungee cords? Have they made you feel clumsy and entangled? Some of you may have used them on occasion, but feel they aren’t anything to write home about. If you fall into one of these groups who have missed the benefits of exercise bands and tubing, please keep reading. First, to clarify the difference between tubes and bands, resistance tubes are round pieces of elastic and usually have handles; exercise bands are flat pieces of elastic that tend to be several inches wide. Resistance tubing and exercise bands are becoming a popular rehabilitation and training tool because they are safe, convenient, portable, affordable and effective. Even better is that anyone can get a great workout by using bands and/or tubing— fitness novices and professionals alike.

Convenient, Portable and Affordable

Does your job require you to travel? Do you live in a small apartment? No problem with bands and tubing. They are flexible, small, and can easily fit inside a purse or small travel bag. Not only are they convenient, but they are affordable. Depending on where you look, you can spend as little as $20-30 for a set of bands or tubing. Keep in mind that bands do

tend to stretch out, and they lose their elasticity with use over time, so investing in a quality set of bands or tubing is best.

Safe and Effective

Even though there have been few studies comparing the effectiveness of tubing vs. free weights, exercise specialists agree that exercise tubing and bands, when used correctly, are effective for strength training and for increasing range of motion and flexibility. Bands are also considered safe. If you happen to drop a band on your foot, it will not shatter a toe like a free weight might. However, like with all exercise equipment, there are safety factors to consider with bands and tubing. Before using an exercise band or tube, make sure there are no holes or worn parts which may cause the elastic to break while in use. Always make sure you’ve securely anchored the tubing, and lastly, keep tubing and bands out of children’s reach.

Tubes and bands come in different colors to represent different resistance; higher resistance is achieved by making the rubber thicker. Unfortunately, makers of exercise tubes have not corroboratively decided which colors represent specific resistance totals. Before purchasing them, it is best to test the bands or tubing to ensure you purchase the appropriate resistance for your workouts.

Exercises using Bands or Tubing

Essentially, any exercise you do with a dumbbell you can also do with elastic. By standing on a long exercise tube with handles, you can perform bent over rows, upright rows, overhead presses, lateral shoulder raises, and bicep curls. While standing on a shorter tube or band, you can add resistance to stationary lunges or plie squats. If you are able to attach the bands to a door or another stable and elevated place, you can perform lat pulls, pectoral flies and tricep pull downs. With a little imagination, you can invent safe, effective workouts of your own.

Combining Weights and Bands

Exercise bands can be used in addition to weight training. As many of you know, during exercises with variable resistance, the amount of resistance changes as you

move through the range of motion. For example, during a dumbbell bicep curl, the tension on a person’s bicep is less at the bottom and the top of the movement. To alter this, you can perform an isolated bicep curl using both a band and dumbbell by looping the band around the dumbbell and anchoring the band with your foot. By doing this, you are increasing the likelihood that the tension on your bicep will be more intense throughout the movement; in addition, you are required to control the “pull� of the band on the way down, rather than just controlling the “dead� weight of the dumbbell. If the band is the right strength, you may find that the dumbbell and band work in conjunction to help you build muscle. What are you waiting for? Try using workout bands or tubes for your next workout, and please let me know how it goes — I love hearing from my readers. Best of luck, stay positive, and keep up the great work.
