TULALIP — The Tulalip Resort Hotel’s Orca Ballroom was packed with more than 400 diners and auction bidders whose contributions will help the Tulalip Boys & Girls Club keep pace with the needs of the community’s youth. “I just come to watch Mel,” laughed Dan Olson of HDR Engineering, a fiveyear veteran of the annual auction benefitting the Tulalip Boys & Girls Club. “He does such a great job as the host. I’m also interested in bidding on some Tulalip fine dining.” Tulalip Tribal Chair Mel Sheldon Jr., who emceed

this year’s event, noted that the annual auction has been going for 13 years, as long as he’s been on the Tulalip Tribal Council. He deemed the event’s regular attendees old friends. “It’s great that we can all come together for the kids,” Sheldon said. “Our guests come not only from Snohomish County, but also from Skagit and King counties. We even have a few from as far away as Idaho. The younger generation needs inspiration, and the Boys & Girls Clubs give them a place where they can go to socialize and play sports.” Marysville School District Superintendent Dr. Larry

Nyland likewise praised the Boys & Girls Club for providing a safe environment that’s both educational and recreational. “They’re great partners with the schools and communities,” Nyland said. “Kids can go to the Tulalip Boys & Girls Club after school and receive tutoring on computers.” Marysville City Council member Michael Stevens attended the auction for the first time this year, but he made up for it by bidding on several items for his kids and for landscaping. “There was a cooler basket and gift certificates for SEE AUCTION, PAGE 2

Anderson: ‘I knew it was an emergency situation’ BY KIRK BOXLEITNER


Vol. 119, No. 14

MARYSVILLE — “I’m still cold now,” said Daniel Anderson, the day after he was rescued from an expedition into the wilderness gone awry. Anderson, a Marysville resident and Washington State Patrol trooper, was off-duty when he and a few friends ventured east of Darrington, first by biking 11 miles, then by hiking 10 more miles, before camping out in the mountains on May 13. On May 14, Anderson parted company with the rest of his party to continue on to Holden Village. “I screwed up,” said Anderson, whose military service has included stints in the Marines, the Special Forces and the National Guard. “I was confident in my training, but

when you go off on your own like that, just one little thing can leave you so vulnerable.” It was a trail he’d hiked before, and he’d brought two GPS units to keep himself on course, but the one stopped working and the other began leading him down a questionable path as he continued his hike on May 15. When he set up camp that evening, 800 meters past the wood line, he realized that he’d lost his tent in one of his falls. “I knew it was an emergency situation,” Anderson said. “It was just a matter of time before hypothermia set in.” Anderson used some pine branches, a flat, square boulder and the SEE RESCUE, PAGE 2

He’s done a great job.” Diane Prouty, office manager for the Tulalip Boys & Girls Club, could not recall seeing more donated auction items on display during the 13 years of annual auctions. “There’s so many quality items here, which are very much appreciated,” said Prouty, who explained that the Tulalip Boys & Girls Club will use its funds to expand

Gum disease may raise the risk of developing cancer. This finding is based on a long-running study in which male health professionals with a history of gum disease were found to have a 14 percent higher overall risk of developing cancer. After controlling for smoking and other risk factors, periodontal disease was found to be significantly associated with an increased risk of lung, kidney, pancreatic, and hematological (blood) cancers. This higher overall risk was even detected in men who had never smoked. Researchers point out that people with gum disease have inflammation in their blood, and inflammation has been linked with cancer. It is also possible that whatever causes the inflammation may also cause gum disease and cancer. Let us help you with answers to your questions about gum disease and cancer. Our dental team is committed to performing to his or her highest ability in order to achieve the optimum level of care. At the office of Beth A. Gold, D.D.S., we believe that with preventive periodontal care, daily brushing and flossing, and a well-balanced diet, people can maintain their teeth and gums in good health well into their later years.

Later that same day, on May 16, he spotted a search and rescue helicopter, but was unable to signal its crew because he hadn’t brought flares. “You hear that voice, telling you to rest,” Anderson said. “If you listen to it, that’s how you slip away.” Anderson refused to give up, repeating the words, “I will not quit, I will not die, I will survive” as a mantra, as he thought of his two sons, 12-year-old Jacob and 8-year-old Christian. Shortly before 9 p.m. on May 17, he’d

You can say, ‘Oh, he was only four miles away from the beginning of the trail, but then what? I still would have had to walk the length of a marathon just to get to where there are any cars, and I needed help.” Anderson laughed as he acknowledged that, while his wife Julie has been sympathetic, his sisters Debbie and Denise “wanted to kill me” for his excursion. Although other adults tried to impress upon his sons the severity of the situation, Anderson reported that they were never worried, because in their words, “He’s Superman.” Anderson expressed his gratitude and apologies to all those who had contributed to the search and rescue efforts. “You’ll see beautiful stuff in the mountains that you simply wouldn’t see without negotiating the tough stuff, but when I saw all those cars and people as I was brought back, all I could think was, ‘What have I done?’” Anderson said. “When my buddies backed out of doing this with me, I should have shifted my schedule.”

Honoring those who died in service to our country


n May 30, during the annual commemoration of Memorial Day, communities SCOTT FRANK across the country will be honoring MANAGING military members who died in serEDITOR vice to this great nation. More than one million Americans have given their lives in service to this country and families in our communities, like so many other families across the nation, have experienced the loss of war throughout this nation’s history. Eichmann Strickland, Shawn Starkovich and Justin Herbert are just some of our community members to fall while fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. In Vietnam, our communities lost many including John Larsen, Ron Hayes, Gary Paddock and Gus Smith. Among those community members we lost in the Korean War were Walter Moses Jr. and Joseph Charles. Our communities answered the call in World War II and Charles Clark and Chuck Stewart were just two of the many servicemembers who never made it home. There are many, many others from our communities who also made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of this country and all that it represents, and we should all take time on May 30 to remember their service and to honor their sacrifice. In Marysville, members of American Legion Post 178 are commemorating Memorial Day with a service which begins at 11 a.m. at the Marysville Cemetery. That event will be followed by a lunch, beginning at noon, at the Legion Hall. In Arlington, American Legion Post 76 will once again host its annual commemoration. The day will start at 6 a.m. when hundreds of flags will be posted at the Arlington Cemetery. The parade, which runs down Olympic Avenue begins at 10 a.m., and that will be followed at 11 a.m. with a ceremony at the Arlington Cemetery. Take time to attend one of the ceremonies to honor those who lost their lives while defending our country — we should never forget them, and never forget their sacrifice.

Bill Ruckelshaus’ opened the forum by stating that the biggest challenge facing the stormwater issue is the lack of coherent priority setting. Ruckelshaus noted current efforts included several layers of government, all of which are “engaged” in preventing stormwater runoff, but very little of that governance effort is focused on setting clear priorities. Despite a lack of direction, the state, federal and local governments will have spent more than $800 million on water quality projects around the state during the last two years. As we continue to live, play and work in the great Pacific Northwest, we must be mindful of how we can better participate in maintaining the natural beauty and valuable resources around us. When it comes to stormwater it is clear that proper education and careful prioritization of clean water spending will go a long way in reducing the impacts from stormwater, and will help improve the overall health of the Sound.

Coury delivers ‘State of the Station’ BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — The base commander of Naval Station Everett laughingly warned the members of the Greater Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce that they “live in interesting times,” which he admitted he wasn’t sure whether was a curse or not. At the Chamber’s May 20 Business Before Hours, Capt. Mike Coury addressed area business owners’ interest in the economic impact of the roughly 6,500 military personnel, as well as their families, who are attached to either the base or its ships. “That’s $300 million a year,” Coury said. “We’re the area’s second largest employer behind Boeing, even though we’re a relatively small base. Naval Station Norfolk is 10 times our size. We’re small but powerful.” Coury predicted that Naval Station Everett’s impact on the community would expand with the installation of the Army National Guard facility at its Navy Support Complex in Marysville, which he anticipated would open this summer. “You’ll see a lot of activity there during the weekends,” Coury said. “With monthly drills, the military will have even more of a presence here.”

When Chamber members such as John McKeon asked how they could better support those service members and their families, Coury cited programs such as the Chamber’s military familyfriendly initiative as evidence that they’re already doing well by the military and their families. “The support this community has shown us is absolutely superb,” Coury said. “It’s the finest I’ve ever seen. When we reenlist a sailor, we’re reenlisting his whole family. If they don’t enjoy the experience, he won’t reenlist. Communities such as yours are how we retain quality sailors. I’ve never gotten any complaints about this area.”

Coury noted that he’s met frequently with former and current Marysville mayors Dennis Kendall and Jon Nehring, as well as representatives of the Marysville School District, about meeting the quality of life needs of his sailors and their families, especially their children. “If their parents get their orders in the middle of a school year, it can make it that much harder for them to reintegrate into the community,” Coury said. “It becomes more challenging for them to get into higher education if they lose certain opportunities.” The public will be losing one of its few opportunities to enter Naval Station

Everett this year, as Coury informed his audience that the base’s annual Freedom Festival, which takes place during the Fourth of July weekend, has been cancelled due to security concerns in the wake of Osama bin Laden’s death. Naval Station Everett spokesperson Kristin Ching later elaborated that this heightened security posture applies to all Navy installations. “It’s especially unfortunate because this is the Lincoln’s last year here,” said Coury, who added that the USS Lincoln and the USS Nimitz will swap out so closely that there will be a brief overlap of families, enough to tax the limited housing available in Snohomish County.

‘Cruzin for a Cure’ supports American Cancer Society BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

SMOKEY POINT — In spite of gray skies and a bit of drizzle, the second annual “Cruzin for a Cure” car and bike show beat out last year’s registration numbers. “As of noon, we had 61 entrants registered,” said Mark Lilgreen, team captain for the event. “We only had 50 last year, but it was pouring rain that year.” Lilgreen estimated that the show itself took in about $2,000 for the American Cancer Society, without counting the individual collections of the number of Relay For Life team booths that were allowed to set up at the event for free. Lilgreen’s interest in stylish vehicles and finding a cure for cancer

both tie back to his family, since he credited his son with reawakening his appreciation for classic automobiles, and while his grandparents and his wife’s father have died of cancer, his own parents and his sister have survived. “We hope we can find a cure so that our kids don’t get it,” Lilgreen said. This event hit close to home on both fronts for Jim and Laura Scharf of Granite Falls. Jim brought his 1922 Dodge Bros. Roadster to show off to event attendees, while Laura shared her story of being in remission from lymphoma for the past five years. “Cancer can be horrible,” Laura Scharf said. “It can take away your self-esteem and your quality of life, and that’s if you’re lucky enough

to survive it.” The Scharfs expressed how moved they were by seeing the community come together on behalf of this cause. “When you show folks who are fighting this disease that you care, it can give them a lot of strength,” Laura Scharf said. “Everyone has been touched by cancer in one way or another.” Smokey Point’s Steve Mallory, a 32-year tow truck driver in Marysville, has owned his 1962 Oldsmobile for four years and been in remission from lymphoma for two years, although he noted that the medication he has to take for his rheumatoid arthritis includes a risk of cancer recurring. “I’ve been enjoying my

life and my grandkids,” said Mallory, who’s proud of his father and brother for serving in the military. “I support the troops and I support finding a cure for cancer. I’m a heartfelt kind of guy.” Mallory not only wears his heart on his sleeve, but all over his vehicles, with stickers and paintings honoring the passing of his former wife and his friend’s son. He even brought an American flag motorcycle to the show, custom-painted with 50 stars and 13 stripes. “I don’t care if it was my worst enemy in the world, I wouldn’t wish cancer on them,” Mallory said. “That’s the rottenest crap to deal with. The American Cancer Society saved me, so heck yeah, I’ll support them.”

Join the fun at Healthy Communities Challenge Day

MARYSVILLE — The city of Marysville and the Marysville Community Coalition invite you to the free annual Healthy Communities Challenge Day on Saturday, June 4, a fun-filled community fitness and health celebration that will motivate you to reach your health, nutrition and fitness goals. Challenge Day will be 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, June 4 at Allen Creek Elementary School, 6505 60th Drive NE (SR 528). Snohomish County Get Movin’, the annual free summer program aimed at motivating families to

adopt more active lifestyles, will also occur at the same Challenge Day location. “We want to make Marysville a more fit and health-conscious community,” Mayor Jon Nehring said. “We invite you to help us kick off a healthy summer at Challenge Day.” Challenge Day will feature a variety of interactive activities and events to help you get a head start on getting fit this summer including: ■ Screenings and information from several health and fitness agencies. ■ Plant your own strawberry starter plants and veg-

etable gardening seeds to plant and take home. ■ Healthy food vendors. ■ Climbing wall (weather permitting). ■ Free massages. ■ Body fat testing. ■ Hands-on activities and much more. Other activities throughout the day include sports injury prevention and screenings from Summit Rehabilitation, Nintendo Wii demonstrations, Marysville youth sports clubs information, Everett AquaSox and Everett Silvertips booths, signup information and details about the Wilcox Farm Community Garden, and general health information from participating community service organizations such as Goodwill and the Salvation Army. Challenge Day will also feature live entertainment with the Grove Street Library Band at 11 a.m. and a solo performance by Ian Dobson, an accomplished steel drum percussionist and collaborator with his Pan Leggo band, at 1 p.m. Marysville Community Coalition (MCC) has stepped up this year to coordinate Challenge Day with support from the city. The Coalition is a community partnership that since the 1980s has pro-

moted safety, diversity and awareness, and responded to the needs of youth, working together toward a safer and healthier community. About 80 vendors are registered for this year’s event, said Andrea Kingsford, city Recreation Coordinator and MCC Chair. Challenge Day is also an opportunity to celebrate the successes thus far by the many individuals and organizations involved in the Marysville Healthy Communities Project. The project since 2007 has been aimed at reducing obesity in the community and the chronic diseases associated with it. “The work that has been done through the Marysville Healthy Communities Project is making Marysville a more fit and health-conscious community,” Nehring said. “Through our community-based collaborative response, we are seeing real changes in lifestyle in Marysville that will reduce the obesity epidemic in our community, and the chronic diseases linked to it.” For more information call 360-363-8400, or visit the Marysville Healthy Communities Project website at

Yappy Hour raises funds for dog park MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Dog Owners Group raised $320 at its Poochapalooza WineTasting and Yappy Hour at Marysville’s WineStyles on May 14. Half a dozen dogs arrived in style by white doggy limousines, courtesy of Canine Cozy Care Resort, for the Yappy Hour dog party, which was part of the afternoon event. The event also featured tasty treats and gift bags from Poochapalooza sponsors The Dining Dog Cafe & Bakery and Dmarie’s Boutique in Edmonds, and

showcased dog-related and other works of art from Jennifer Bloom of Haute Portraiture. The wine-tasting was a kickoff for the fifth annual Poochapalooza Outdoor Dog Event, which is set for 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on July 9 this year at the Strawberry Fields Park, located at 6100 152nd St. NE in Marysville. All proceeds from the wine-tasting, and Poochapalooza, will go to support the Strawberry Fields for Rover Off-Leash Dog Park, which is maintained by M-DOG through donations.

Lakewood’s Stanton verbally commits to OSU BY CHRIS TRUJILLO

Lakewood’s 6-foot, 6-inch, 219-pound tight-end Dustin Stanton has seemingly sewn up his future, at least for the next few years. Stanton, a junior at Lakewood High School, recently made a verbal commitment to accept a full-ride football scholarship to Oregon State University. High school players cannot sign NCAA letters of intent until February 2012, according to Lakewood coach Dan Teeter. OSU wasn’t the only top-tiered program knocking at Stanton’s door. The Air Force Academy

offered Stanton a full-ride to play defense (linebacker), Teeter said. Aside from AF and a few other teams in the now-Pac 12, Stanton meshed best with the Oregon State staff. “He (Stanton) really gelled with the Oregon State staff,” Teeter said. “I think it was the USATODAY that ranked OSU No. 1 staff-wise and for family atmosphere and that really resonated with him.” In the 2010 season, Stanton, made 19 catches for 291 yards and scored four touchdowns. He earned All-Area honors at tightend and All-Conference honors on defense. As a linebacker, he ranked second on the team, regis-

tering 73 tackles, Teeter said. “There are not a lot of teams that can match up with him,” Teeter said. “It nice to know that he will be back with us next season.” For two consecutive years, Stanton, who carries a 3.3 gradepoint average, has received the “Coaches Award”, an accolade that emphasizes a players’ attitude, effort and commitment. “Most important other than his physical skills, Justin (Stanton) has earned the “Coaches Award’,” Teeter said. “The award goes to the player who plays hard and is a good example for the other players.”

M-P softball falls to Jackson in championship game BY CHRIS TRUJILLO

MONROE — For the second time in as many years, the Jackson Timberwolves defeated Marysville-Pilchuck in the District championship game.

Jackson’s Lindsay Robinson hit a home run in the fourth inning, as the Timberwolves defeated the Tommies 1-0, May 19, at Sky River Park. M-P made one-last rally in the bottom half of the sev-

enth inning. Pinch runner Kaitlyn Wielgus, who was at second base, was thrown out while sliding into third after being caught in a rundown. M-P will enter the state tournament as the second seed from District 1.

MARYSVILLE — Two Marysville-Pilchuck golfers, Abby Beauchamp and Kelsey Colmore, are headed to the state golf tournament. Beauchamp, who took first place at the May 16-17 district tournament with a two-day score of 169, is making the trip to state for the third time. Two years ago she qualified as an alternate and last year she played the first day but missed qualifying for the second day of play by one stroke. Colmore finished in 13th place at district with a twoday score of 195 and is making her first trip to the state tournament. Tommies Ashely Tande shot a 201, Sarah Newland shot a 206, Courtney Burdett shot a 209 and Stephanie English shot a 210. “Abby’s fundamentals are very strong. She has a great iron game and putting stroke,” said M-P golf coach Jaci Legore Hodgins. “This year she has really been able to put her full game together.” “I am so excited to have won districts. Our season started off a little rocky, but when it counted the whole team came together to

take the district title,” said Beauchamp. “It’s great to be a part of a championship team. I can’t wait to see what happens at state.” Hodgins described Colmore as a gifted athlete who is extremely powerful and determined. “She is gifted at crafting ESPN highlight film shots when she needs to get out of trouble.” Hodgins praised the play of the entire team which went undefeated in league

play on its way to the district title. “We are very lucky to have a strong team of six girls who could all score and contribute to our team score this season,” said Hodgins. “That’s why we were undefeated in Wesco play this year.” Hodgins added, “I am so proud of this team and how they handled themselves all season. They are classy and know the rules. They are confident and cool under pressure.”

Community mourns loss of Wil Whetham BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

MARYSVILLE — Wil and Durla Whetham had only taken three vacations since they opened their mom-andpop grocery store on May 1, 1972. Last year, they finally found the time to attend their first high school class reunion, and they’d recently started talking about retirement. Wil Whetham never got to retire. The 68-year-old and his 13-year-old grand-nephew lost their lives after the boat they were on capsized off Camano Island on May 7 of this year. Those who knew Wil Whetham, who was shrimp fishing with grand-nephew Austin Anglin and son Brian when the 18-foot boat overturned, described him as an experienced boater overwhelmed by a freak storm. Family, coworkers and customers considered him a friend and expressed sorrow over his passing. Bruce Hamphton shopped at the Whethams’ Boulevard Grocery on 61st Street NE for 14 years, and deemed himself “devastated” now that Wil is gone. “He was always there at the store, way before dawn, this

big guy built like a tank in this little apron,” Hamphton laughed. “He was always cleaning and putting in the new produce, and he always took good care of himself. He was just this great salt-of-theearth fellow. He always had a sense of humor and a big smile on his face. A lot of his employees have been there for a long time, because he was just a good man.” Shari Chapman started working for the Whethams a decade ago, and is now the assistant manager of the Boulevard Grocery. Like Hamphton, she found it difficult to maintain her composure as she remembered the man who had meant so much to her. “I didn’t have much of any grocery experience coming into this job, and he whipped me right into shape,” Chapman smiled. “He taught me everything I know about this business. I lost my dad before I started working here, and Wil became like a second father to me. He always told me he was proud of me.” Chapman noted that Whetham came in at 2:30 a.m. so that he could leave at 9 a.m. and have the rest of the day free for his outdoor activities, from hunting and fishing to

snowmobiling and quadding. She also recalled how, when one customer came in to get change to fill up the air in her tires, Whetham aired up the customer’s tires himself. Durla Whetham continues to work at the store, and has received condolences and well-wishes from many of her customers. She chuckled as she admitted that, when she first met Wil in a tie and slacks, she thought she’d found herself a city boy. She soon learned how wrong she was. “He was a real outdoorsman, so my whole life changed,” Durla Whetham said. Both Wil and Durla’s lives changed again when Wil, who had previously worked at Albertsons for a dozen years, asked Durla to check out a small family-run grocery store whose owners were looking to retire. “I couldn’t even find it at first,” Durla laughed. “It was a hole in the wall, not even half the size of our current space.” The Whethams were so short of money that they had to call their parents for the down payment, which they agreed to after visiting the store themselves. While Wil and Durla promised they would pay their folks back, Wil also reassured Durla that, even if the store

didn’t succeed, they were still young enough that they could recover from it. In the nearly 40 years since then, the Boulevard Grocery has not only expanded its space, but also acquired refrigerator units and a liquor license. “Our motto has always been that we’re here to serve our customers, because without them, we wouldn’t even be here,” Durla Whetham said. “My husband took so much pride in what he did here.”

Communities commemorate Memorial Day The observance of Memorial Day will once again be commemorated by the members of Marysville American Legion Post 178 with a ceremony and a meal. Legion members will be placing flags at the Marysville Cemetery before the official remembrance ceremony May 30, starting at 11 a.m. at 8801 State Ave. Last year, more than 200

flags were placed in memory of the police officers, firefighters and military members who had passed on. Each year’s ceremony typically includes an invocation by the Post chaplain, the Marysville-Pilchuck High School Naval Junior ROTC parading the colors, and a 21-gun salute from Marysville Legion members, also in memory of the veterans. The M-PHS Band

May 25, 2011

will be putting in its first appearance at this year’s ceremony, under the direction of John Rants, and will provide backing for M-PHS JROTC Cadet Cheyanne Froehlich when she sings the national anthem. The Post always strives to complete the ceremony by 11:30 a.m., so that attendees can make it in time for the open luncheon that follows at its Legion Hall, located at 119 Cedar Ave., where the general public can meet and speak with local veterans. Although there’s no charge for anyone to grab a plate of salad, cold cuts or cake, donations won’t be turned away either. On May 30, Arlington American Legion Post 76 will stage its own annual downtown Memorial Day Parade and a Dedication Ceremony at the Arlington

Cemetery, located at 20310 67th Avenue NE. At 6 a.m., hundreds of flags will be raised at the Arlington Cemetery to honor the men and women who have died serving the United States.

The parade kicks off at 10 a.m. at the Arlington Post Office, and makes its way down North Olympic Avenue to Legion Park. Local youth and veterans groups, as well as the Arlington High School

such as washing dishes, vacuuming and cleaning floors. There is no minimum time required. Would-be volunteers are invited to let VCS know what works best for them. To volunteer, you must be able to pass a Washington

State Patrol background check and provide three personal references. For additional information, contact Debra Bordsen by phone at 425257-2101, Ext. 3323, or via email at DebraBo@ccsww. org.

The online video contest challenged students to create videos highlighting the importance of math, science, technology and career and technical education courses in high school. Videos were evaluated on multiple factors, including content, theme, cinematography, creativity and delivery. “The winning videos clearly demonstrated the importance of STEM and Career & Technical Education,” said Jeff Vincent, chair of the Washington State Board

of Education. “They stood out as exemplary in a host of very impressive entries.” The contest ran from March 1 through May 2 and garnered 24 entries. Videos were evaluated by three student representatives of the Washington State Board of Education. AHS seniors Kayti McCluskey-Russo and Claire Logan won first place in the creative category, one of the contest’s two categories, with the other being documentary. The AHS seniors’ video debunking the existence of Bigfoot received the highest score of all the entries and was cited for its use of the scientific method and a diversity of different scenes. Other elements which were singled

out for their cleverness in the evaluation included interviews, a search in the woods and a confrontation with a Bigfoot expert who was revealed as dressing up as Bigfoot himself. “Some great things have gone on recently within our video productions program at Arlington High School,” said Erik Heinz, who teaches English and video production at AHS. “In addition to placing second at the Guerilla Film Festival in Bellingham, we’ve learned that three of our students won prizes, including Flip cameras and iPods, for the ‘Make your Mark’ video contest sponsored by SchoolTube and Balfour. I’m very proud of their accomplishments.”

In Loving Memor y Jesse Holman Burnett Jesse Holman Burnett was born August 30, 1977 in Everett, Washington and was taken suddenly from us on May 20, 2011 due to an early childhood heart condition. Jesse grew up in Arlington, Washington and graduated from Arlington High School in 1995, and then from Western Washington University in 2002 with a BA in Theatre of Arts/Dramatic Writing, with Honors. Jesse was a loving son, brother, uncle, boyfriend, friend and keeper of the stray cats that sought him out, knowing his good nature and kind heart would save them. His passing leaves us all with a vast hole in our lives and our hearts.He leaves behind his loving mother; Jane (David) Roberts, father; Richard Burnett, sisters; Jenni (Jeff) Hartman, Tessa (Sam) Bondurant, Dawn (Mark) Bostwick, brother; Jason Roberts, nephews; Zachary Hartman, Cole Bostwick, Andrew Roberts, Jacob Bondurant, niece; Sage Hartman, girlfriend Melanie Winslow, numerous uncles, aunts, cousins and uncountable friends. Jesse also leaves behind his three cats, Charles, Blue Eyes, and Orange Cat (aka Irritation), who will miss him dearly but will be well taken care of by Jesse’s family. At the age of 18, Jesse bought a piano and not only taught himself how

to play, but taught himself how to play beautifully and passionately. He also later taught himself to play the guitar with the same vigor. He and Melanie enjoyed writing, composing and performing music together, and everyone benefited greatly from the joy of their music. We rejoice in the fact that we will continue to listen to his recordings, keeping his music fresh in our minds and our hearts. From acting to directing to writing, Jesse did it all. His performances in local plays in Western Washington received rave reviews. We were fortunate to witness his abilities as an actor, director, and later as a playwright, when his work was chosen to be performed at the New Playwrights Theatre in Bellingham, where he wrote, directed and starred in his own play. Many remember Jesse and Jenni when they owned the Arlington Bookstore. Jesse was the front and center of the store and the backbone. He made it a welcoming place rich in literacy, music

and art. Jesse was supportive of the many groups that frequented the store and greeted all customers with a warm welcome. Jesse’s passion for cooking led him to a career in the food industry. To say that Jesse was a talented chef is an understatement. He could prepare food that was so beautiful that you didn’t want to eat it, but was so mouthwatering that you just couldn’t resist it. Talented, kind, funny, compassionate, gentle and caring are just a few words that describe Jesse. Watching movies and sports, playing soccer, floating the river, reading, writing, cooking, painting, listening to music and making music were some of his favorite pastimes.In living, Jesse was a free spirit; in death there are no limits, restrictions, or boundaries, and his spirit must be soaring above us in a place of limitless freedom and peace. Jesse, we love you, we love you, we love you and will miss you always. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, May 26, 2011, at 3:00 pm at Weller Funeral Home, 327 N. Macleod Avenue, Arlington, WA, with reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations honoring his memory may be made to the American Heart Association or an Animal Rescue Organization of your choice.

Martinez gives back for support she received BY KIRK BOXLEITNER

ARLINGTON — “It was like I’d hit some kind of lottery,� laughed Rebecca Martinez, a mother and former nurse at the Regency Care Center of Arlington. In spite of the comparison, they’re the sort of

unlikely odds that no one wants to get. Martinez had no history of cancer in her family, and when she was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in August of last year, she was told that only 4 percent of people younger than 65 ever get it. “They told me it was an old person’s cancer,�

Martinez said. “The first thing I thought was that I didn’t want to die. My kids are still young. I still want to be around for them.� Martinez underwent radiation treatments to shrink the tumor that was already crushing her vertebrae and causing her excruciating pain. After four months of chemotherapy, the percentage of cancer had been reduced enough that doctors were able to do a stem cell treatment, but the stem cells had to be auto-harvested because Martinez had no match. “The reason is because

there aren’t as many Hispanics in these donor banks,� Martinez said. “I didn’t even realize it before, but this is why we need to get more diversity in these banks. It’s not just Hispanics who are short of donor materials, but Indians and Filipinos as well. This really opened my eyes.� Although Martinez is in remission, the damage to her spine is permanent and has left her at risk for possible paralysis. “I have to be careful about lifting, bending over or falling,� Martinez said. “I’m very fragile now.�

“Free Washington Apples With purchase of any battery March through May!�

Martinez is grateful for the support she’s received, and has decided to pay this goodwill back by supporting this year’s Relay For Life. At the Regency Care Center’s cookout fundraiser for Relay on May 21, Martinez donated 50 multicolored cancer awareness bracelets for them to sell, with each color representing a different type of cancer. “I am truly blessed to have so many kindhearted friends, family members and neighbors,� Martinez said. “I want to give back in any way I can.� The Arlington Relay

For Life takes place this year from June 4-5 at the Arlington High School stadium. For more information, log onto

“That’s right! Buy any battery & you’ll get a fresh pack of sliced WA grown apples! Energize a local farmer!�
