The event is put on by the Marysville School District by their Equity, Diversity and Indigenous Education Department. “We wanted to be able to help showcase and help ignite the excitement for multi-cultural dance and food,” said Deborah Parker, the school district’s director of Equity, Diversity and Indian Education and one of the main organizers of the event.

Volunteers build ramps during Rampathon By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com


Diane Croy, left, and Scott Outson help the volunteer effort to build their friend Jonathan Palin a ramp as part of the 2019 Rampathon on May 18.

Local volunteers helped build a ramp for an Arlington resident as part of the 2019 Rampathon on May 18. The Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties organize the annual event and this year were able to help construct 40 ramps across the two counties. That includes one in Arlington and four more in Marysville this year. Eric Wallace, a volunteer who helped to organize the Arlington build, has participated in the event before and returned this year. "I'm in the construction industry but I'm

mostly a desk guy, so I don't get to build anything anymore, with the exception of my own home products. So it's fun to get out and get my hands dirty again and it keeps my skills sharp," he said. Wallace and others helped to build Arlington resident Jonathan Palin a ramp for his home. "We're hoping to finish this whole thing up and have a ramp built by four o'clock," he said, "and if we don't, I have tomorrow to finish it up." Other volunteers came out from the construction industry or as friends of Palin. Palin suffered a traumatic brain injury

when he was in a car accident as a child and requires a wheelchair fulltime. "I've been friends with Jonathan for almost 20 years. Our parents were friends," said local Scott Outson. " He's our buddy. I've known Jonathan for almost six years now," said Diane Croy, who serves as Palin's caretaker. "This will help him get in and out of his home easier," she said. Currently Palin has to go around to the back entrance of his house to get in. "He has a ramp van that will take him right [up to the ramp that is being built] and that way he has a straight shot to his house instead of going around back, which we have been doing thus far," said Outson. Wallace said he enjoys the event be-

pines and traditional Native American songs. “To us it’s important that we recognize the rich diversity that’s here in Marysville and Tulalip and the surrounding areas,” said Parker. “We want to ignite that excitement for the diversity of this country,” she said. Dancers and singers often explained where their songs came before beginning the music. “These songs belong to some of our families and we believe when you drum our ancestors stand at attention,” said Chelsea Craig, a Tulalip Tribal member and cultural specialist at Quil Ceda Elementary. “It’s time we drum and be proud of who we are,” she said. Experiencing songs is a good way to connect with different cultures, said Terrance Sabbas, Native American liaison with the district.

cause that ramp building is a clear goal that concretely helps people. "I like it as a charitable event because there is a need and we can fill it. It's not an intractable problem like homelessness. It's something we can fix for somebody," he said. "It's a great event and a lot of fun for everybody, especially when it's not raining," he said. The annual Rampathon is a partnership between many different organizations that help build the ramps. The Master Builders Association helps with outreach and finding the candidates who need ramps and can't provide them themselves. "They organize the whole thing, so they take care of the paperwork and get the Port-o-Potty, and they help with lunch," said Wallace. Dunn Lumber is the grand sponsor this year. "They provided the lumber and plywood for the decking," said Wallace. Finally, Arlington Hardware helped

“We want to share some of this good music and good dances with you guys so you get to know a little bit about who we are as people,” he said. It also just helps bring people together, said Parker. “We just want to make sure that it is colorful and a happy celebration,” she said. In addition to the dancing and singing there was a variety of cultural foods brought it and prepared by Marysville staff for students and families to enjoy. Parker said that people enjoyed the first event last year. “There was so much excitement that it ran late, but everyone was still there at the end,” she said. The variety of different cultures that come out for the event help many students feel like they have more representation. “When the Aztec dancers come out there is an excitement. When I see the Aztec students and teachers there is an excitement that

"The weather is so much better than last year," when it was frequently raining, she said. The Shred-a-Thon provides a convenient place for people come to get rid of some of their private documents they don't want to leave in their trash. "If they just stick it into the recycling it can be a little worrisome," she said. The paper is shredded by the trucks at the event and then brought back to a plant to be recycled. The event is popular with those who keep a lot of documents at home. "I can tell you that our community thinks it's useful because we start getting calls in January asking when it is happening," said Mennie. It also happens after tax season so many people usually have some documents they no longer need.

Community members learn about health organizations at fair

Like us on Facebook: /TheNorthCountyOutlook

By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com Community members learned about the health organizations and exercise businesses around Arlington at the second annual Spring into Summer Health and Wellness Fair. The event was held on May 18. The fair offers people a way to learn about the various organizations that can support people in either exercise, healthy eating or with other health concerns. "We just feel like people don't know what's available in their community and this type of event where you get everyone together and talk about what resources there are can really educate families and show them that there is so much right here in Arlington," said Jennifer Egger, executive director of the Stilly Valley Chamber of Commerce. "There are senior services, for example, that can be kind of hard to navigate," she said. Egger said that all sizes of organizations came to the event, from Skagit Regional Health to local Arlingtonbased companies. As summer approaches it's good for families to know what kinds of physical activities are in Arlington, as well, said Egger. "We have a lot of activities for kids to do over the summer to keep families healthy. We feel that it is a good way to start off the summer so they have things to do and aren't just sitting around and playing video games," she said. Community members said that they enjoyed brin-

"We think it's definitely great to bring the kids out here and be part of the community," said local parent Chris Kuhn. "I think it's a positive thing to bring to the community. It's a good experience for all of the participants and a good representation of the healthy options in our community. Also my son likes the bouncy houses," said local parent Mary Levesque. This is the second spring season that the fair has come to Legion Park. "It's going great. We have great weather and there's about 40 vendors from different nonprofit organizations and health organizations," said Egger. "We have most of the vendors that were here last year who came back to do this a second year," she said. The feedback from vendors and the community

was positive for the first year which is why they wanted to bring back the health fair, said Egger. Other community organizations came out to the event as well, such as the Arlington Fire Department and the Sarvey Wildlife Care Center. "This is a good opportunity for them to come out and show what they do at

Sarvey," said Egger. Egger said that the event was also good for local businesses to get their name out there. "From the chamber's perspective we're here to support businesses of all sizes and one of the things that's important is to provide connections to the community. This is one way to do that," she said.

Eagles fall in first round of State Tourney By Andrew Hines sports@northcountyoutlook.com

The Arlington baseball team took on the O’Dea Fighting Irish at Sherman Anderson Field for the first round of the 2019 WIAA 3A State Baseball Tournament on May 18. The Fighting Irish struck first as they took control early scoring three runs in the first two innings while keeping the Eagles scoreless. In the third inning, Arlington managed to put together their first shutout inning as they kept the game close down 3-0. The Eagles made a statement in the fourth inning, rattling off four runs to claim their first lead of the game 4-3. Arlington continued to extend their lead in the top of the fifth inning with a few big hits that drove in two more runs to lead 6-3. O’Dea fought back immediately in the bottom of the same inning as they scored on a deep two-run home run over the left field fence. The Fighting Irish continued to claw their way back by stalling Arlington at six runs

and tying the score in the bottom of the sixth inning, 6-6. Arlington wasn’t able to score in the top of the seventh, as the Fighting Irish worked their way around the bases in the bottom of the inning to eventually finish off the game, winning 7-6. “Our kids continued to believe and battle, but we just weren’t able to hold onto the lead there at the end. It’s amazing to be here and an incredible accomplishment to come and compete four years in a row. These guys aren’t just great players, they also have amazing character and I’m proud of the people they have become,” said Arlington Head Coach Scott Striegel. Arlington’s underclassmen Cole Cramer, Owen Bishop, Cole Warner and Michael Tsoukalas stepped up in the last game of the season. Cramer, sophomore second baseman, went 2-4 at the plate with two singles, two runs, two RBIs and one stolen base. Bishop, junior pitcher, started at the mound and threw four strikeouts over four innings while also getting walked twice at the plate

and picking up a stolen base. Warner, junior center fielder, finished with one single that turned into an RBI and a run. Tsoukalas, sophomore right fielder, did not record a hit but earned two walks, two runs and a stolen base. “This team is my family and I’ll remember this team for the rest of my life,” said Eagles’ senior catcher Jack Sheward. Sheward went down with an injury in the bottom of the sixth inning on a collision at the plate, but chose to remain in the game, “I wasn’t going to let the other team take me out of this game. It takes more than just wanting to win, you have to have heart and be willing to take the pain if you really want it.” The Eagles seniors Sheward, Andrew Smith and Paul Chung put together solid starts against the Fighting Irish. Sheward led from behind the plate while going .500 at the plate with a single, double and an RBI. Smith, left fielder, went 1-3 with one single, a walk and one run. Chung, shortstop, earned one hit on the day with a double, a walk, one RBI and a stolen base. With the loss, the Eagles' sea-

Arlington will graduate nine seniors from their roster over

the offseason. Next season they will rely on the experience from their younger players as they look to make it to the State Tournament for the fifth year in a row.

Kamiakin defeats M-P on the pitch By Andrew Hines sports@northcountyoutlook.com

The Marysville-Pilchuck boys soccer team hosted the Kamiakin Braves for the first round of the 2019 WIAA 3A State Tourna-

ment on May 14. The Tomahawks came out aggressive as they stay solid on the defensive end and kept their possessions on the Kamiakin side of the field. Over the first

half neither team was able to score as Marysville-Pilchuck doubled the Braves shots on goal with a total of eight. In the second half, Marysville-Pilchuck con-

tinued their aggressive offense as they scored in the 43rd minute of the match. The Braves began to play more physical after falling behind 1-0 and started to make a few runs through the Tomahawk defense. After creating a deep run, Kamiakin finally tied up the match in the 58th minute on a breakaway goal. Both teams continued to battle back and forth up until the last minute of the match. With less than two minutes left in the match the Braves were given two controversial penalty kicks, converting the second, and captured the 2-1 lead. With little time remaining, Marysville-Pilchuck was unable to score and lost the match 2-1. “This team never quit, and they worked really hard throughout the entire

season. The seniors were a confident bunch, this is the most accomplished group I’ve had and they’re the reason why we’re here. Now we need to figure out if we can do this again,” said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Paul Bartley. The only player to score for the Tomahawks was senior forward and captain Randy Galvan in the 43rd minute. Galvan used his exceptional footwork as he was Marysville-Pilchuck’s biggest offensive threat and recorded his 13th goal of the season against the Braves. “We have a great coaching staff here, the team was amazing and we made sure to always play our game. It was a good season, but we deserved better there at the end,” said Tomahawks’ senior mid and captain Leo

Jaramillo. Mar ysville-Pilchuck was led on the defensive end by their captains Leo Jaramillo and Edgar Martinez, as well as their senior keeper Eric Ibanez. Jaramillo and junior defender Martinez organized the team throughout their strong year as they finished with the best record in the regular season. Ibanez started all season at goalkeeper as he had countless saves, only allowed 13 goals and notched nine shutouts. After this loss the Tomahawks season is over as they finish with a 16-3-1 overall record, with two of their losses coming in their postseason run. With their season ending, MarysvillePilchuck will graduate nine seniors and look to reload for next season around their young core.

The Marysville Getchell softball team battled the Everett Seagulls, and Marysville-Pilchuck took on the Edmonds Woodway Warriors in the third round of the District 1 3A Tournament on May 22. The Chargers had a defensive battle from beginning to end with the Seagulls, as only a few runs were scored throughout the game. The first run came in the bottom of the third inning as Everett put a few hits together for a score. The Seagulls then added on to their lead in the fifth with two more runs, extending the gap to 3-0 over Marysville Getchell. The Chargers went scoreless through six innings but were determined to rally in the seventh as they put up one run early. Their late surge was too late however as Everett closed the inning and took the 3-1 victory. The Tomahawks game was drastically different than the Chargers as they fell behind early to the Warriors. Through the top of the fourth inning, Edmonds Woodway looked like they were going to run away with the victory as they scored nine runs and kept Marysville-Pilchuck scoreless. The Tomahawks began to find their hits in the bottom of the fourth as they scored five runs through the fifth inning and closed the gap, 9-5. Marysville-Pilchuck shutout the Warriors for the rest of the game but were only able to put up one more run through the bottom of the seventh. In the end, Edmonds Woodway took the 9-6 victory over the Tomahawks. “We knew we had a chance to do well and the

Hi! My name is Charm and I’m a super sweet girl. I am mellow, quiet and looking for a lap to occupy. And trust me, you will want me in your lap because once you pet my silky-soft fur you won’t be able to stop! I have shared the room with other cats and gotten along well with them if they’re not too bossy. If you have a kitty at home, we will probably do well with a proper introduction. I’m pretty tolerant but I get stressed if I feel bullied so I’m looking for a quiet home. If you are looking for a soft little lap warmer, come in to the NOAH Center today and meet me!

team stepped up to put together a great season. They gave it everything they had and we were in every game this year. There will be a lot more good memories than bad for this group,” said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Mike Moran. The Chargers were led by Brionna Palm, Thea Hatch and Skyleigh Morrison. Palm, junior pitcher, was on the mound for all seven innings as she threw nine strikeouts and also contributed at the plate with one single and a stolen base. Hatch, senior first baseman, did not record a hit on the day but earned two walks and the only run for the team. Morrison, senior right fielder, recorded the only other hit for Marysville Getchell as she had a single and an RBI. “I’m proud of them. They worked hard and we’re not going to let this final game define our season. We have a young team and we’ll have plenty of more opportunities to come back here over the next few years.

She had an impressive day behind the plate catching for two freshman pitchers, as well as hitting 2-3 with one single, one double, a walk and three runs. Marysville-Pilchuck’s underclassmen Lauren Lewis, Alissa Edge and Cassidy Phelps also had solid starts. Lewis, junior center fielder, went 2-4 with a single, double and one run. Edge, junior in-

With both Marysville teams losing in the tournament their seasons have ended. The Chargers will graduate a total of six seniors and will rely on their next group of upperclassmen to lead their team next season. The Tomahawks have a very young roster and will be losing three seniors in the offseason as they will return next year with an experienced young core.

Local events planned for Memorial Day By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com This year’s Memorial Day will be observed on May 27 and the Arlington and Marysville American Legion Posts plan to hold their annual ceremonies again. Memorial Day serves as a recognition of those who died while in the military and local American Legion Post officials say they hold events each year to recognize and remember those individuals. Marysville The Marysville American Legion Post 178 will hold their annual ceremony at the Marysville Cemetery and also celebrate their 100th anniversary as an organization. The event begins at 11 a.m. The Marysville-Pilchuck High School NJROTC will do a presentation of the colors and the National Anthem will be sung.

“Our chaplain will do an opening prayer and during the presentation I’ll have a few words, especially about the fact that we’re celebrating our 100th anniversary this year,” said Dan Grumbach, post commander of the Marysville American Legion Post. “It happened in April but we’re doing the celebration in conjunction with Memorial Day,” he said. The Marysville American Legion Auxiliary group will also give a flower presentation as part of the event. “They have the roses, one red, one blue and one white, to present. One of the women that is going to be doing that is Ethel Cage,” said Grumbach. Ethel is the widow of prominent Marysville community member and longtime Marysville American Legion member Ken Cage who recently passed away. “I

talked to her and she wanted to do it,” said Grumbach. Members of the Marysville American Legion plan to set up flags on Friday. Grumbach said they hold the event to honor those who died during military service. “It’s in memory of all the people who have passed as veterans over the years,” said Grumbach. “We’re remembering all of them with the day." Arlington The Arlington American Legion Post 76 will hold their annual parade and ceremony at the Arlington Cemetery on Memorial Day. The parade will travel down Olympic Avenue beginning at 10 a.m. "After the parade we go to the cemetery to hold our ceremony," said post commander Dave Marsh. Marsh said that the Legion will work to put up to 600 flags up at the cemetery


Arlington’s American Legion Post 76 leads last year's Memorial Day parade down Olympic Avenue on May 28, 2018. before the event. "We do this every year because it is a tradition," said Marsh. "It's part of what the American Legion does as far as I can remember back." Unlike some of the city's other parades, such as the

Fourth of July parade, the American Legion Post organizes and puts this parade on themselves, he said. The event also helps the American Legion post connect with Arlington residents.

"It helps us be a part of the community," said Marsh. "It brings everyone in the community together as well," as Arlington High School JROTC and other organizations and groups come down to be part of the parade.

Panel will discuss social worker program By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com Local community members can learn more about Marysville and Arlington’s embedded social worker program at a public panel discussion on May 28. The event is scheduled from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Smokey Point Community Church, 17721 Smokey Point Blvd., Arlington. The embedded social worker program partners a

police officer with a social worker who work to build relationships with homeless individuals who have substance abuse problems and get them the help they need. “Bringing police and social workers together to help people is showing really positive results,” said Connie Mennie, communications administrator with the city of Marysville. Social workers can guide those who want help into services to beat addiction

and get housing. “A lot of them didn’t know how to get the help they needed,” said Mennie. The outreach method is meant to be an alternative to the usual arrest and jail for those who desire to recover. “This model of building relationships has worked to help a lot of people,” said Mennie. “In some of the more impacted areas, such as Smokey Point, we’ve heard that people are seeing a lot

less of the criminal activity,” she said. The panel will include Snohomish County officials, Marysville and Arlington officials, local police officers and members of the embedded social worker teams. City officials encourage the public to come to the panel to learn more about the program. “We made a promise for an update to the public when we started this, so we want to provide that,” said Banfield.

The program began last spring and the cities will share data about the number of contacts, number of assessments and number of people who have secured housing who have been supported by the program. Since May of last year the county has standardized the data from Marysville and Arlington’s program and the other social worker group they run in south county. “They were really able to start making the data the

same from all the different groups,” said Banfield. That allows for “applesto-apples” comparison of the numbers. “We’re pretty excited to show some of the things we’ve been able to do with the program,” said Banfield. Marysville officials are also happy with the number of people helped so far. “Overall, the city is really encouraged with the results of the process,” said Mennie. “We want to talk about if this program is making a difference. We believe it is and can show that,” she said. The embedded social worker program is a twoyear pilot program for the area. “At the end of the two years we will have to decide whether to continue on this path or try something different,” said Banfield. Panelists plan to discuss the future of the program as well at the event. “Going forward, what are the next steps for the program, and what does the city and county need to keep the program going,” said Mennie. The biggest stumbling block for the program right now is helping individuals secure an income. “It’s really hard to find a job when you have that kind of employment history,” said Mennie. “We have had some businesses step up and begin to hire people from the program and are looking for more of that kind of support." There will also be an opportunity for Q&A at the panel.

Students earn PUD art contest awards By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com


Lakewood Middle School student Katie Anderson’s winning bookmark entry in Snohomish PUD’s 2019 art contest.

Several local students were recognized for their artwork in Snohomish PUD’s 2019 art contest depicting ‘Energizing Life in our Communities’ or photography of ‘Energy in Action.’ Students were scheduled to be honored by PUD officials on May 21. Winners this year were recognized across the county, including local schools such as Marysville’s Liberty Elementary, Lakewood Middle School and Arlington High School. The local utility district has been putting on the art contest for more than a decade now. “We have themes usually based on one of the goals of the PUD that we’ve been working on,” said Heather Herbst, public education program coordinator. This year students were

asked to design a bookmark about “Energizing Life in our Communities” and students responded with a variety of art pieces. The PUD plans to print out those bookmarks and give them for distribution at the winners' individual school and at the Sno-Isle Libraries. High school students could also take part in the photography competition. “It’s fun for the photography teachers,” when they can apply their lessons into a contest, said Herbst “It’s a good thing to put on a college application." The program is meant to help students engage in how the energy they use is produced. “I think it’s important for the community to under-

stand that we are interested in our ratepayers not just as ratepayers, but as individuals in the community,” said Jenni Lamarca, public education program coordinator. “We want to hear what they have to say,” she said. PUD officials meet with the winners to honor them as part of the program. “When the winners come out to our building they get to meet the commissioners,” said Lamarca, and students and parents get to make a more direct connection with the leaders of the PUD. The PUD’s education program provides a lot of ways for schools to put more energy content into their curriculum. “Our biggest offering is

classroom presentations,” said Herbst, who added that they provide thousands of hours of student instruction each year. “When you have school districts that are financially strapped, this kind of free resource is invaluable,” said Cayle Thompson, media and public relations liaison with the Snohomish PUD. The art contest is part of their education program and offers a different angle to talk about energy and power. “We do a lot of STEM [science, technology, engineering and math] work with our education program and this is a way to reach out and appeal to a broader swath of students,” said Thompson. Local winners in the

PUD Art Contest include: Grade 1 Delilah Soto Liberty Elementary School Grade 7 Shelby Lott Lakewood Middle School Grade 8 Katie Anderson Lakewood Middle School Local winners in the PUD Photography Contest include: Grade 9 Mia Urionaguen Arlington High School Grade 10 Myles Arballo Arlington High School More information about the PUD’s education resources and the full list of winners is available at the PUD's website at snopud. com under the Education tab.

Soroptimists Club honors local women By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com The Marysville Soroptimists Club recognized local women for their contributions to the community at their annual awards dinner on May 16. The women-focused service club honored two individuals for their volunteer work and gave three “Live Your Dream” awards meant to assist those going in college or career training. Serenity Turner is the recipient of this year’s Violet Richardson Award, which is given “to someone who is making a difference through their volunteer work,” and is a woman from 14 to 17 years of age, said Nancy Schaut, a member of the Marysville Soroptimist. Turner started volunteering at the All-Breed Horse Rez-Q. “The rescue takes care of old horses, sick horses and abandoned horses,” said Schaut.

The Marysville Soroptimists presented an award of $500 for Turner and $500 for the rescue as part of the presentation. Turner started at the rescue a few years ago. “I’ve had a couple of horses that I really loved,” she said, “that’s kind of why I stayed.” The organization is all volunteer run and Turner has helped raise funds through events like an Easter Egg Hunt. The rescue moved away from the Marysville area after they lost their space, but Turner said she found a new local group to work with, Courageous Connections. “They deal with people who have disabilities like Down Syndrome and get them on horses,” she said. This year’s Ruby Award was given to Tonya Christoffersen. The award recognizes an individual who has contributed to the community to help women and provides

funds to continue their work. Christoffersen collects for a variety of local shelters. “On her social media I see collections for hygiene products, and collecting for diapers and coats,” said Renae James, member of the Marysville Soroptimists. “She’s got a room set aside where she collects for the shelters,” said James. Christoffersen helps with a variety of shelters including the Snohomish County Cold Weather Shelter and Maud’s House in Marysville. She has been with the Lake Stevens Lions for 15 years and has been part of the board of directors for the Marysville Fire District (as a Fire District 12 commissioner) for many years as well. This year she decided on a new project as well. “I wanted to give back to other people so I decided I wanted to go someplace I’ve never been, and about as

remote as I could go,” said Christoffersen. Working with Cross Cultural Solutions, a branch of the Peace Corps, she is planning a volunteer trip to help women and children in Ghana. The Marysville Soroptimist’s present the Live Your Dream award to help provide funds for local women looking to get education and job skills. Award recipient Angie Christy is a single mother of three who will is currently training in a veterinary technician program. “The last two years I have been in a divorce situation from an abusive relationship that left my kids homeless. I got laid off the same time and I was diagnosed with PTSD,” she said. “It all came together in this question of whether I continue in this career that’s not fulfilling and I have traumatic association with, or do I make the leap,” she said.

Marysville Soroptimist member Renae James, left, and Ruby Award winner Tonya Christoffersen at the local Soroptimists awards dinner on May 16. Kayla Allen is another award recipient. She is looking to become a registered nurse and was inspired by those who helped her with the premature birth of her daughter. “We spent six weeks in the NICU [Neonatal Intensive Care Unit], 24 hours a day there,” she said. “I spent a lot of time with the nurses and they helped keep me sane,” she said. Local Rana Engleson is the final recipient who is looking to become a massage therapist. “I’m a single mom with four children,” she said.

“I’ve been wanting to have a career in wellness for a long time. I didn’t really have all the puzzle pieces together but this helps with one of those pieces." The Soroptimists were also presented with a surprise of their own during the evening as Marysville student Victoria Wilde submitted the group for Presidential Award for Community Service, which they received a gold award for. “I’ve been around a couple of years and you guys have really shown me how to volunteer and be part of the community,” she said.

have some fun with the above plants. They will give you many months of enjoyment and despite some of their higher costs, when you amortize it out over the season, it is only pennies per day. That’s cheaper than a latte.
