Families connect with healthy options at Challenge Day By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com Community organizations helped provide some fun for kids and healthy options for families at Marysville's Healthy Communities Challenge Day on June 1. The annual event brings a number of local organizations together in Marysville to provide health information. "This is our 11th annual Healthy Communities Challenge Day and we're super excited to have it again this year at Allen Creek Elementary School," said Andrea Kingsford, recreation coordinator at the city of Marysville's Parks, Culture and Recreation Department. There are a broad range of local vendors from health options like Healthy 1st Chiropractic to nutritional eating information like Beechers Foundation. "We started this event 11 years ago as part of the Healthy Communities project to help families connect with their community," said Kingsford. "We want help them learn about nutritional health, physical health, mental health, recreation and support organizations. It's really about that broad sense of the word 'health,'" she said. Many of the organizations also provide See HEALTHY on page 2

Officials discuss results of Embedded Social Worker program By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com Police officers in Snohomish County, Arlington and Marysville have been working with social workers to connect directly with homeless individuals for a little more than a year now. The Embedded Social Worker program has a year’s worth of data and local officials gathered for a panel to discuss the results of the effort so far on May 28. In the program a police

officer is paired with a social worker to go out into homeless encampments to build relationships with those individuals and support them getting into services such as drug treatment when they are ready to. “We are really good at putting handcuffs on people and taking them to jail. I will tell you we did that for seven and a half years with this epidemic and the problem just kept getting worse,” said Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary.

In the first year of the program officers and social workers helped 80 people get into treatment from the Marysville area, according to Marysville Police Chief Rick Smith. Of those, 42 graduated from the program, he said. Arlington Police Chief Jonathan Ventura said that the program had 904 encounters in Arlington. Those visits helped 33 people complete a detox See RESULTS on page 2

program, get 46 people housing and had 24 people graduate from the program. The program is meant to help those who are seeking recovery from drug addiction. Social worker Britney Sutton said that many people they interact with want help but simply didn’t know how to get it. “One specific client ran around Arlington quite often, everybody knew him,” she said. “We met him in Marysville jail, serving time on a couple of warrants and he was ready. He was saying ‘please take me from here,’” she said. That client is now engaged and expecting their first child. “Instead of stealing from Arlington, he works in Arlington,” said Sutton. Some clients are more distrustful though, said social worker Rochelle Long, which is why it’s important for the program to build relationships with homeless individuals. She described one client that she originally met under a bridge. “It took a couple of times to engage with him, because

what I find with this population is that they don’t trust people and building that trust is a huge component,” she said. Eventually this client did work with the social workers, said Long. “After eight months he called me out of the blue and said he had relapsed. I tell all my clients please call me or Mike if you have relapsed so we can get you back on track,” said Long. Long said the client has now returned to being sober and has now been allowed to have monitored visits with his daughter, who is currently in foster care. Local officers said that the program was in response to the opioid epidemic and trying to create a new approach to the problem. “We looked at what’s really causing the crime out there,” said Snohomish County Sheriff 's Office Sergeant Ian Huri. He said homelessness, addiction and mental health problems were the root causes of most crime. “If those issues were addressed, they likely wouldn’t be committing that crime any longer.

Smith and Ventura reported that crime has dropped, especially in areas near homeless encampments, since the program’s inception. Smith said that in one area near a homeless encampment commercial theft was down by 30 percent, vehicles prowls were down by 57 percent and vehicle thefts were down 78 percent. Ventura said the Smokey Point Walmart is one of the biggest problem areas for the department. “Just in the first year our responses to Walmart have

gone down 24 percent,” he said. The program is meant to reduce criminal activity by bringing those homeless individuals back into the community. Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring said he recently got a message that said the program is doing just that. “An ex-spouse contacted me and sent a photo and a message a couple of weeks ago. This individual had gone through treatment and was now coming to their kids’ soccer games and was being an active participant in getting their life back together,” he said.

nity together for the kids is fun," he said. "It's great so far. We've only done a few things so far but we've had a lot of fun," said local parent Beth Ivey. Kingsford said providing a free family event for the kids is a good way to help parents connect with summer activities or other groups that can help them live healthy lives. "We have a large number of vendors from around the community that provide healthy options and it's a great way for families to connect with those vendors to find out all about the different healthy living options in the area," she said.

The day also featured many demonstrations from local groups including the Marysville Getchell High School drumline, Kung Fu for Kids, Rising Stars Gymnastics and a water balloon activity to end the day. The event is a collaboration between many local groups. "The Everett Clinic has been a longtime sponsor of this event. It really makes a difference to have such incredible sponsors," said Kingsford. Other sponsors include the city of Marysville, the YMCA, the Marysville Together Coalition, the Marysville School District and Walmart.

Students showcase work at annual Cedarcrest STEM fair

By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com

Cedarcrest Middle School students showed their research and experiments at the school’s annual STEM fair on May 29. The fair is completely voluntary for students, said Christopher Overland, science teacher at the school. Students participate in one of three categories for the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fair: engineering design, experimental design and research. For engineering design “students are trying to use science to solve a problem,” said Overland. One of the top projects in the category was about restoring a local habitat. “This student made a very beautiful model about rehabilitating a habitat for the western pond turtle, which is an endangered species in Washington,” said Overland. In the experimental design category “students are posing a scientific question, doing an experiment and gathering data,” said Overland. Overland said he wanted students to use the scientific method to approach a question. “This student was looking at the pH level of different bottled water brands. It’s an interesting topic because there is a wide range of pH levels that they found,” he said. “They followed the scientific model very well and that’s something that we’re proud of. We really like to look at big picture science and not just memorizing those scientific facts,” he said. Finally the research category is about learning about and presenting on a topic of the student’s choice. Overland said that it was good to let student’s investigate what they wanted to. “I think they like that they get to choose something they’re interested in to go above and beyond with,” he said. Cedarcrest Middle School student Emily Heck said she liked participating in the fair because of that.

“It’s a really cool fair. Everybody brings their stuff and we get to see them all. It’s really cool that we get to pick our favorites as well,” she said. Cedarcrest staff and students also presented some of the STEM activities at the school at the fair, such as the 3D printers the school has. “A lot of teachers utilize the 3D printers in interesting ways to encourage the technology part of STEM,” said Overland. The school’s Lego League club, which builds robots using Lego supplies and programming, also showed students and parents what they were working on. “I’m presenting what we’re doing with the Lego League world wide tournament,” said Dom Pashok, Cedarcrest Middle School student and member of the club.

Water safety tips can help prevent tragedies _____ “ By Andrew Hines sports@northcountyoutlook.com

With summer just around the corner, many people in the area are looking forward to cooling down and having some fun in the water. One thing to remember is that with all of the fun that the water can bring, there are also a lot of dangers that come along with it. “Every year we go on a number of calls to the river and other lakes, and every year we have a near drowning or a drowning. Those are not calls that we want to go on and we are trying to provide everyone with information in order to stay safe,” said Kristin Banfield, Communications Manager for the city of Arlington. With the Stillaguamish River being a popular spot for residents to gather during these hot months, the city of Arlington and the Arlington Fire Department remind you that the best way to stay safe is to stay out of the river. However, if you insist on entering the river or any open body of water there are a few tips that you should follow. Always have supervision. If anything goes wrong you should always have someone there to make a call for help, and if you are a child you should have adult supervision as well.

Every year we go on a number of calls to the river and other lakes, and every year we have a near drowning or a drowning.


Kristin Banfield

Know your capabilities. No matter what others around you are doing, you should know where your strengths and weaknesses are when it comes to the water. “It’s not just kids that we have to rescue out on the water,” said Ms. Banfield, “Anyone who isn’t being careful can get into a dangerous situation.” Know the water. Whether it be the temperature, depth, under water currents or a number of other factors, you should know what you are getting into before you dive in. “Cold water can kill, even on hot summer days” said Banfield. Wear a life jacket. Finally, the most important tip is to always wear a life jacket. Whether you

Local golf scramble benefits charity By Andrew Hines sports@northcountyoutlook.com

For the fifth straight year the All-Star Break Charity Golf Scramble will be held at Cedarcrest Golf Course in Marysville. The event will be on Tuesday, July 9, and will begin as a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. “It started out as a way to have fun with some friends, but now it’s a way for us to bring the community together to help support our charity and give back to kids who need it. It’s only the fifth year, but it’s grown from just a few of us the first year to over a hundred participants and sponsors,” said Major League Baseball Umpire

proceeds will go to UMPS CARE, the official charity of MLB Umpires since 2006. The charity focuses on giving back to the kids as they organize BuildA-Bear Workshops for children battling deadly illnesses, Big League Baseball experiences for at-risk youth, and gives out college scholarships to deserving young adults who were adopted later in life. “UMPS CARE is a national charity but we’re trying to shine a light on Seattle Children’s because, being from this area, I know that’s where you want to go when your kid gets sick. Just stepping into that building one time, seeing the look in a kid’s eyes when you bring in gifts and changing their day for just a little amount of time, that’s what’s important.

It makes you realize how much a smile can mean in the grand-scheme of things,” said Tripp Gibson. Last year the event was able to generate over $37,000 with 144 participating golfers, while their goal this year is to eclipse $50,000. Aside from local golfers attending the event, officials from the other three major sports will also be in attendance including the NBA, NFL and NHL.

To participate as a golfer, you can purchase a registration for $150 as a single participant or get three other friends together to play as a foursome for $600. Each person will receive a pass to compete in the scramble, as well as a gift and a lunch provided to you. Aside from registering as a participant, there are also opportunities for local businesses to contribute as

sponsors or for others to give anything they can as a donation.

Strawberry Festival begins June 8 By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com Marysville biggest summer event, the Strawberry Festival, returns this year from June 8 to June 16 with a variety of events. “Hopefully it is fun for everyone and helps create a lot of memories for the families here,” said Jodi Hiatt, president of Maryfest, the nonprofit organization that puts on the festival every year. The festival begins with the Berry Run, a fun run held at the Tulalip Amphitheatre. The Berry Run will begin at 9 a.m. on June 8. Later that morning will also be the Kid's Day at

Asbery Field which brings children’s performers and free activities to the field for a day meant for families. Kid's Day is held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. On June 11 the Strawberry Festival Fashion Show will be held at the Marysville Opera House from noon to 2 p.m. The fashion show serves as a fundraiser for the scholarship provided to the festival queen or king. The Talent Show returns for another year on June 13, bringing singers, dancers and other performers to the Marysville-Pilchuck High School auditorium. The event begins at 6:30 p.m.


The 2019 Strawberry Festival Float will be among the many entries participating in the Grand Parade on June 15 beginning at 7:45 p.m.

Depending on the weather the Funtastic Carnival also begins on June 13 and is held through June 16, bringing classic carnival rides and games to the Marysville Middle School field. The Market in the Park brings many vendors to Asbery Field on June 14 to 16. Also at the field for all three days will be the Kiwanis Beer Garden. Asbery Field is the center of many events on June 15 as well. “The car show is coming back this year and we have a wrestling event that will be held at Asbery Field on Saturday,” said Hiatt. The car show is held on June 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Combat Pro Wrestling will be holding two shows — the first from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. and the second from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The traditional Strawberry Shortcake Eating Contest will feature kids and others devouring many plates of strawberry shortcake beginning at 1:30 p.m. The parades down State Avenue are held on June 15

as well, including the Kiddies Parade which is scheduled for 6:15 p.m. and the Grand Parade which is set to go down the street at 7:45 p.m. “The kids like the rides, the cotton candy, coming down to watch the parade and seeing all the people walking past them and going down the street,” said Hiatt. Maryfest staff have been working to bring in more new people to their events as well, she said. “Our team has been working on it for a year now,” she said. “We’ve been researching and bringing in some new people to our events, some new vendors and parade participants." For example, Clan Gordon will be marching in the parade, said Hiatt. “They’re a really neat band to hear,” she said. Marysville residents should not put out chairs on State Avenue to reserve a space at the parade until Friday, June 14. “We started a policy two years ago,” said Jim Ballew, director of Marysville’s Parks, Culture and Rec-

n Emily’s Wellness Wisdom

What you should know about your health score Do you know your health score? You probably track the common numbers like your weight and blood pressure, perhaps cholesterol, and maybe

even your A1C score. But do you know your day-today numbers as they relate to hitting your health goals? What's measured is

managed, and if you have some specific goals you are working toward, the best way to achieve them is to monitor them. Here are a few key num-

bers to know in your overall health score: BMI BMI stands for Body Mass Index and is a chart that is universally used by the CDC, your physician, and even insurance companies when they are determining your risk. Your BMI is only based on your height and weight and gives a general range of if you are at a healthy weight. A healthy range is about 19-25; anything over that gets into the overweight category and above 30 gets into the obese categories. Since you probably can't get taller, the only way to reduce an inflated BMI is to lose weight. BMR BMR stands for Basal Metabolic Rate or the number of calories you burn in a day just staying alive. BMR does not factor in physical activity which can add 300-500+ calories depending on your level of activity. The BMR is important for you to know as many people don't eat enough calories in a day when trying to lose weight

and can go into starvation mode. The opposite is true when people unknowingly eat way too many calories and are gaining weight and not sure why. It could be that they are just getting a few hundred extra calories they didn’t realize they were eating. To determine your BMR use an online calculator or if you have access to one, get a body composition analysis. Daily Sugar Intake Do you know how many grams of sugar you are eating each day? The newest recommendation is to keep it under 36g of added sugar per day for men and under 24g per day for women. The average American consumes an astonishing 150-200 pounds of sugar per year. Sugar is quietly added into our foods left and right, and we are consuming it at an alarming rate. The only way to cut back on sugar is to get a good idea of what you are consuming now. To determine the amount, track everything you eat for a day. There are many great apps available to see what

Emily Countryman

that translates to in grams of sugar. Getting down to 20g a day may seem like an insurmountable task so start with small reductions. Cut it by 25% to start, then move to 50% until getting at or lower than the recommended amount is easy for you. Visceral Fat Rating Visceral fat is the deep fat in your abdomen that surrounds your organs. This is typically higher in men as they tend to carry weight in the gut area. A high visceral fat rating is a warning sign that a person is at greater risk of heart attack, stroke, high cholesterol, and clogged arteries. To get your rating, you can do a body composition analysis at a wellness clinic that offers such testing or ask your health care provider. Health goals can feel really overwhelming, but when you can break it down to simple numbers, you can track and manage them better. Rather than setting out to lose weight, start with a goal of knowing your sugar consumption and getting it to half that amount per week. Small changes can lead to huge health wins.

Chamber carnival returns June 6-9 By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com

Rides, vendors and food will be available at the Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce’s annual Chamber Carnival which will be held June 6 to June 9 this year. The carnival is located at 9600 Quil Ceda Blvd., Tulalip between the Tulalip Home Depot and Cabela’s. It will be open on June 6 from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., on June 7 from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m., on June 8 from noon to 11 p.m. and on June 9 from noon to 10 p.m.

There is no cover charge and an all-day wristband costs $30. Chamber officials said they are excited about this year’s carnival. “Families like the variety of rides we have, including rides for the little ones and rides for the teens,” said Jesica Stickles, president/CEO of the chamber. Rides and games are provided by a carnival company that the chamber works with for the event. The company shares some of the proceeds of the carnival with the chamber so that the event provides funds for their events and programs throughout the year. “This year they let us lower the price a little as

well,” said Stickles. All-day wristbands this year cost $22 for those who pre-register by June 5. Pre-sale wristbands are available at the Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce office at 8825 34th Ave. NE, Suite C. Stickles said they put the carnival on every year because it’s a tourist draw as well, and helps bring people into the Quil Ceda Village area. “We’re fortunate enough to secure the land lease by Cabela’s each year which is very visible from I-5 and that draws a lot of people into it,” she said. A number of local businesses will also have booths at the carnival. “The parents can do

some shopping while they're at the carnival,” said Stickles. “We’ve got a lot of momentum this year." She said that 10 vendors have signed up to be a part of the event this year. “That includes a mix of activities and goods for sale,” she said. Face painting will be available along with products for sale and food. “In addition to the three food trucks that the carnival brings full of carnival food, we’ll also have some food trucks there with Caribbean cuisine, biscotti, and Auntie Anne’s Pretzels as well,” said Stickles. “There is a lot of food choices." Auntie Anne’s Pretzels is also the main sponsor of the carnival this year.


known as splash pads) provide jets and sprays of water for kids to run through during the summer. Marysville’s spray park is downtown in Comeford Park at 514 Delta Ave., Marysville. It is open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The spray park opened in 2016 and has brought many families to the park since then. “It truly is one of the better improvements that we have made to our parks in the last few years,” said Ballew. “I think families like the free recreation that we can offer them with the spray park,” he said. Families said they enjoyed the feature at the park. “It’s fun. We’ve never

done it before but the kids love it,” said local parent Sage Sansaver. “We love it. We came last year as well,” said local parent Christina Spangler. “It’s a very good addition to the park,” she said. Ballew said that spray parks are less intimidating to little kids than standing water features. “It’s a great introduction to recreational water for them,” he said. Marysville officials expect that families will come out again to the park frequently for the summer. “The turnout is looking to be another big year,” said Ballew. A new spray park has also been opened up in Arlington. “Now that we have another spray park nearby it will be interesting to see how much traffic we get,” said Ballew, who added he is happy there is another nearby option now. The spray park is scheduled to stay open for the summer season. “I hesitate to say when the spray park is closing,” said Ballew. “We usually look around Labor Day but we like to extend the date depending on the weather. We have had some very warm Septembers recently,” he said. The city’s Splish Splash Summer Bash will also return to Comeford Park and the spray park on June 26 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. as well. “It’s our kickoff to summer,” said Ballew. “We have all kinds of things that kids can come out and do,” including arts and crafts, activities and a band playing for children. The event is sponsored by Puget Sound Pediatric Dentistry.

Show and Shine expands to two days By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com The Show and Shine Car Show returns to Arlington this week with a two-day lineup for the first time. The car show will be held June 7 and 8 this year and is put on by the Downtown Arlington Business Association (DABA). “We expanded it to two days,” said Cristy Brubaker, DABA treasurer. “That helps us with points on our lodging tax grant application." Brubaker said that many of the car show participants already were in Arlington the day before. “People always bring their cars to town Friday anyway and drive around, getting excited for the actual show,” she said. “I have heard from some of the locals that they’re excited for that to be an actual part of the event." Rich Senff, DABA member and owner of Action Sports, said that the Friday brings back some of the

classic “cruising” culture. “If we actually give them permission one night it brings back that old era of cars,” he said. Before city laws prohibited cruising, it was part of the car culture in Arlington and elsewhere in the county, said Senff. A variety of different classic and customized cars will be on display throughout Olympic Avenue for the event. The car show will be held from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on June 7 and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 8. Brubaker said that it is a fun, welcoming event and that cars are often tied in with lots of emotions for people, so it is interesting to see how people talk about their cars. “We have a friend and she and her husband did a lot of car shows with us. Now that he’s passed she continues to do it because it’s something they did together and there’s such a good core of support,” she said.

"Father's Day each year makes me grateful for what my father did for me. This has little to do with our relationship, and much to do with what he taught me."


Author ­— Karen DeCrow Submitted by North County Outlook editor Scott Frank.


RAVE RAVE: The Spray Park at Marysville's Comeford Park has opened for the summer. The city of Marysville has made a lot improvements to the park and it's a great place to take the family. Thanks to everyone who made the improvements to Comeford Park happen. RAVE: My family attended the Healthy Communities Challenge Day last weekend for the first time and was impressed with the event. There were a lot of fun events for

the kids, as well as a lot of important information regarding healthy living. Thanks to the city and everyone else who put on this event.

RANT: Now that the weather is warming up, city parks are seeing more people use them. Unfortunately, some of those people don't bother to pick up their own garbage. Please don't litter, other people shouldn't have to be responsible for picking up your trash to keep our parks clean.

If your search topped with dainty pink flowers. for dark foliaged plants for shade It is evergreen in a mild winter or

deciduous when it drops into the teens for a couple of weeks. It’s a real cutie. Ligularia Brit Marie Crawford — This is a bold perennial with large (6 to 9 inches across) chocolate-maroon leaves that makes a truly shocking statement in a shade garden. The yellow/ orange daisy flowers that come on later in the season are mostly a distraction in my book, so I just cut them off but you can leave them if you wish. Ligularia Garden Confetti — This plant defies description. It boasts large leaves, like most Ligularias, but in this case the foliage is multi-colored and shouts “what fun”. You have got to see this one to believe it. Rodgersia Chocolate Wings — Also a large leaved plant, this is a stunner when it first leafs out

(which mine is doing right now). Pink flowers come on a little later and then the foliage turns a dark green, but at this time of year I can’t wait to see it wake up from its winter slumber. Actaea Black Negligee — This is a must in any full to part shade garden and is most definitely one of my top 10 favorite plants. The finely divided dark foliage forms a pleasing mound and then in the fall it sends up 6 foot tall spikes of extremely fragrant creamy white flowers that look like a goose neck bottle brush. Plant it in full sun or full shade and give it lots of water. Astilbe Chocolate Shogun — This was a new find for me a couple of years ago and now I cannot live without it. It holds its chocolate foliage, even in the darkest corners of the garden, and sends up pink flowers in the summer

which make a very nice contrast - although the foliage is reason enough to include it in the garden. Hydrangea Plum Passion — Finally, a shrub for shade that sports dark foliage. This is another Dan Hinkley introduction that will soon find its way into my garden. Dark purple fuzzy foliage is highlighted with delicate lace cap flowers in early summer. I can’t wait to shoehorn it into the garden. All of these plants will look even more exciting if you pair them with golden or chartreuse foliaged plants (of which there are many choices) but alas, that topic will have to wait for another time.
