Lakewood High School seniors grabbed their diplomas and walked across the stage during the 2019 Lakewood Graduation on June 7. Many of the students have called Lakewood their home for the last 18 years and will now enter a new chapter of their lives. “I’ve lived in Lakewood my entire life. I started out in Cougar Creek Elementary, the best of the three elementary schools,” said student speaker Alex Williams. “I’ve had the unique experience of watching us all grow together and seeing the patterns that developed along the way,” he said. Valedictorian Kimmy Epperson wanted to recognize many of her fellow students who made up a great community for the school there. “Thank you to the students of

Show and Shine Car Show attendees Willis Baker, left, and Jerry Curtis talk about cars during the event on June 8.

Hundreds of car enthusiasts came out to Arlington's annual Show and Shine Car Show to display and talk about their vehicles on June 7 and 8. The car show is put on by the Downtown Arlington Business Association (DABA) along Olympic Avenue. Despite the clouds and rain many people still came out to this year's show, said Cristy Brubaker, secretary of DABA and organizer of the event. "We've got 277 cars registered so far," she said. "I'm shocked, to be quite honest, because it's so cloudy." This year the car show was expanded to two days and many people registered early on the first day, said Brubaker. The extra day was meant to allow peo-

ple to cruise around downtown Arlington, something that many visitors of the car show already did. "It went really well. We didn't have as many people bring their cars out because of the rain, but we still had lots of people cruising," said Brubaker. Entertainment was also provided on June 7. "The music in the park was a huge success and everybody loved the beer garden," she said. Brubaker said that people come out to the event because they like the cars and the community. "One guy was telling me he was trying to get his ballot done to vote on the cars. He said he's trying to get it done before voting

North County Fire & EMS considers levy lid lift Higher call volumes have the Board of Fire Commissioners for North County Regional Fire Authority (North County Fire & EMS) considering a fire levy lid lift. Voters would have the final say in restoring funding for emergency services to $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed property value, an amount they approved in 2008. Two public hearings are planned to take community input on the issue. Both meetings will be at 4 p.m. on June 12 and June 26 at Station 99, 8117 267th St. NW, Stanwood. North County Fire & EMS recently completed a Strategic Plan to respond to rising call volumes. Call volumes have increased 37 percent in the past five years due to growth and an aging population. Higher call volumes mean added costs for equipment, fuel, maintenance, and medical supplies. It also requires additional staffing and apparatus to maintain emergency response times and service levels for the community. While call volumes have increased 37 percent, the Fire Authority is limited to a 1 percent revenue increase per year by law. Fire Chief John Cermak said that revenue is not keeping up with the demand for service. “We operate under a balanced budget, make cuts where needed and apply for grants” said Chief Cermak. “However, the 1 percent increase isn’t even keeping up with inflation, which is almost 3 percent for our area.” In 2008 voters approved a fire levy of $1.50 per $1,000

of assessed property value. Over time, levy rates fall as property values rise to limit the Fire Authority to roughly the same amount of revenue per year. The current fire levy has fallen to $1.36 per $1,000 of assessed property value. If approved by voters, the 14-cent lid lift would last for six years and cost the owner of a $350,000 home an additional $4.08 per month ($49 per year). Funding would be used to hire six emergency personnel and supporting apparatus to respond to higher call volumes. If the Board of Fire Commissioners approves the resolution, voters could see the fire levy lid lift on the Nov. 6 General Election ballot. The Fire Authority’s Strategic Plan calls for additional staffing to maintain response times and service levels. It also identifies key capital projects for the agency, such as apparatus that is needed to respond to calls. “We’re in front of these issues before they become a problem, which was the point of the strategic planning process,” said Chief Cermak. “We look forward to hearing from our community about our plans to maintain service levels as our population grows, ages and requires more emergency care.” Community members who are unable to make a meeting are encouraged to contact Chief John Cermak with questions or comments at 425-789-8036 or jcermak@northcountyfireems. com. All input is welcome and becomes part of the public record.

NAME NEWSPAPER

Longtime Marysville community member Harv Jubie will serve as this year’s Grand Marshal to the Strawberry Festival Grand Parade. Members of Maryfest, the organization that runs the festival, announced the selection on June 4. Jubie has served as an electrician in the city and as part of the construction community since almost immediately after he graduated from Lake Stevens High School. He began his career in 1967 which soon brought him to Marysville. “I like Marysville, I’ve been here a while,” said Jubie. “Harv has been around for as long as I can remember and he’s always participated,” said Carol Kapua, a member of Maryfest. She said that Jubie was selected as a person who has contributed a lot to Marysville. “The criteria is: what has this person done for the community, how long have they been here and their love for the things in the community,” she said. As part of the construction industry Jubie volunteered a lot of labor to help build some of the most important buildings in the city, such as the Marysville YMCA. Jubie was very instrumental in helping that construction, said Kapua.

Marysville community members Harv Jubie, left, and Jan Jubie after being informed on June 4 that Harv has been named Grand Marshal for this year’s Strawberry Festival Grand Parade. “We were the people that met with the builders every Monday morning. That was a lot of fun doing that,” said Jubie. “They were the point people behind the installation of the building,” said Maryfest board member Jim Brennick. The Marysville Historical Society’s Museum also received help from Jubie. “He worked on the museum quite a lot,” said Jan Jubie, Harv’s wife. “They built a lot of the little wood storefronts that are inside the museum."

Jubie also helped with the building of the Marysville Community Food Bank and continues to volunteer there. “We contributed money to get that building up, and we go at Christmas time and Thanksgiving to help put out the food. It’s fun to do,” Jubie said. At a local bank, Jubie used to organize a Christmas party to gather toys during the holiday season as well. “For years he invited all the local builder people he was friends with. They were

supposed to come to the party and bring a gift for a local child,” said Jan Jubie. “The bank is still doing it, actually. They’ve gotten their scope a little bigger as it’s not just people Harv worked with now,” she said. Harv has also volunteered elsewhere in the city, such as helping with the Strawberry Festival or at local service clubs. “He was always at the Strawberry Festival helping out,” said Jan Jubie. “He’s been very active in Marysville and the Noon Rotary,” said Brennick.

Marysville Raiders fall in Tournament of Champions By Andrew Hines sports@northcountyoutlook.com The Marysville Little League Raptors took on the Pacific Reece Homes in the semifinals of the Majors Division District One Tournament of Champions hosted by Stilly Valley Little League on June 6. Marysville got off to a strong start in the first as they scored a run in the top of the inning and kept Reece Homes scoreless in the bottom of the same inning. Pacific wouldn’t stay down for long as they shutout the Raptors in the second inning and tied up the game 1-1 heading into third. Over the next four innings Pacific took control from the mound and slowly put up runs on Marysville. Reece Homes scored one run in the third and two more in the bottom of the fourth inning. Their four runs were enough to earn the victory as the Raptors weren’t able to add to their first inning run. Pacific took the 4-1 win and went on to the finals of the 2019 TOC. “After the game I let them realize that you’re not always going to win, whether that be in baseball or in life. You can’t let one bad play or

mistake dictate your effort, attitude or your ability to get back up to keep working at your next opportunity. I’m super proud of them, they never gave up and played a great game,” said Marysville Little League Head Coach Mike Skarwecki. The combination of Marysville’s pitcher, Jack Niederstat, and catcher, Owen Davis, kept the game close from beginning to end. Niederstat pitched all five innings racking up seven strikeouts while also earning a walk with two at-bats. Davis led the team with the only run of the game to go along with one single and two stolen bases. The Raptors' infield of Cooper Agen, Cashden Sellers and Keegan Roberts also put together good performances. Agen, second baseman, wasn’t able to record a hit but showed plate discipline as he tallied two walks and a stolen base. Sellers, third baseman, joined Davis as the only other player to earn a hit on the team as he finished the day with one single. Roberts, first baseman, had three plate appearances and was able to get on base with a walk late in the game. “I coach little league because I enjoy working with the kids to shape them into successful young men. I look forward to teaching them the game, as well as life lessons that they can take into the rest of their lives,” said Skarwecki. Marysville Little League went on to lose to the Mill Creek Giants in the finals of the losers bracket. Mill Creek pulled an upset against Pacific as they won two games back-to-back to take the title of TOC 2019 Champions.

The Marysville Strawberry Festival is kicking off the summer once again and the annual Berry Run got the ball rolling for the weeklong festivities on June 8. The Lakewood Cross Country program hosted the Berry Run, one mile and 5K races, again as they looked to raise funds for local organizations. The list of nonprofits included the Seattle Children’s Hospital’s Strong Against Cancer Campaign, Lakewood Education Foundation and the Lakewood Sports Booster Club. “We’re here to give everyone a community event where they can come together and have some fun. It also gives them the ability to show off their fitness level after putting in their own hard work,” said Lakewood Cross Country Coach Jeff Sowards. The top three finishers in the one-mile race ranged all the way from 12 to 43 years old. NJ Brost, 43, and his wife Kim Brost, 40, finished first for the men’s and women’s divisions with times of 6:40.6 and 6:49.0 respectively. Noah Bumgardner, 12, rounded out the top three as he finished

The top two local male finishers in the Berry 5K were Arlington Cross Country runners Isaiah Lowery and Logan Davies. Lowery, 16, finished in first place as he crossed the finish line with a time of 17:52.6. Davies, 15, slipped back a few spots as he took the fourthplace finish clocking in at 18:37.6.

Marysville Getchell in Jasmine Nguyen and Lilli Toone. Nguyen, 16, narrowly missed finishing in under 20 minutes as she took eighth place with a time of 20:01.7. Toone, 16, was able to round out the top 10 by placing 10th in 21:49.1. “I think I say this every year, but my favorite part is all the smiles on people’s faces. We have such a wide range, from little boys and girls to grandmas and grandpas, finishing their

first races to high level runners coming out to compete against one another. We’re able to help great organizations, but the best part is seeing them cross the finish line and knowing they enjoyed the experience,” said Sowards.

Eagles sign letters of intent By Andrew Hines sports@northcountyoutlook.com Ali Krediet, Ben Spores and Jonathan Schroeder, from Arlington High School, signed their letters of intent on June 6 to play their respective sports at the collegiate level. Ali Krediet has signed to play in Wyoming for the Northwest College Trappers. Krediet has been a multiyear varsity soccer player for the Eagles and has been a leader for the team at the forward position. In Ali’s senior season she started as one of two seniors on the varsity roster and led the team to the final round of the 3A District Tournament. She was also part of the Eagles' most recent trip to the State Tournament as Krediet played on the team that placed in the top eight back in her sophomore season. “The teachers, coaches and friends that I’ve made here have changed my life. This next step is a great opportunity for me to elevate my game and gain more experiences away from home,” said Krediet. Ben Spores will continue to be an Eagle as he signed to play for the University of Northwestern at St. Paul in Minnesota. Spores was a multisport athlete at Arlington as he competed at the varsity level in both baseball and tennis. He contributed in the infield for the baseball team as they made

He also made a huge leap in his senior year of tennis as he competed at State in the 3A doubles division. “When I was 14, I decided that I wanted to try to play at the college level and I’ve been working really hard to get there. I’m really excited to be able to see that next level of competition and hopefully contribute to a deep tournament run in the next few years,” said Spores. Jonathan Schroeder has committed to play lacrosse for the Baldwin Wallace University Yellow Jackets in Ohio. Schroeder has been a leader for the Stanwood Lacrosse Club over the past few years as a defender and longstick mid fielder. Over his final season with the team they managed to clinch

the WESCO 3A Championship as well as finishing as one of the top teams in the 3A State Quarterfinals. Alongside his achievements in lacrosse, he also contributed as a power forward on the Eagles’ varsity basketball roster, where they made it to the first round of the State Tournament. “My dad has always been finding interesting sports for me to play and let me experience lacrosse back in third grade. I never really thought about playing in college early on, but with all of the support around me I was able to reach it. I just want to get over there, get in their facilities and work on becoming a better player,” said Schroeder. These young student-athletes have already made their community proud and will continue to fight hard to compete all over the country at the collegiate level.

Officials consider options for CDBG funds By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com The annual Community Development Block Grant is meant to improve housing and services for lowincome and/or homeless people and local officials are creating a list of priorities for the funds. Planning officials held three public meetings in June to gather comments. Those included one in Marysville on June 4. “The city of Marysville will be working with Snohomish County, the city of Everett and our local housing authorities on a consolidated plan that will guide us and give us direction on how to allocate the Community Development Block Grant,” said Amy Hess, associate planner with the city of Marysville. Every five years cities and counties develop some goals and priorities for their communities with the money.

The next plan will start in July 2020. “It’s a bit of a long process, which is why we’re getting started now,” said Hess. The city receives around $350,000 each year, generally, from the federal program. Hess said that the formula can shift around depending on who is in charge of the federal government at the time. Because Marysville and Everett have large enough populations they get to decide where to spend their funds, while the county allocates the remaining funds to the rest of the county. Hess said they hope to target projects and programs that help low-income individuals, senior citizens, disabled people, veterans, and homeless or at-risk of homelessness individuals. The majority of the money must go toward building, maintenance or

capital projects. “Only 15 percent can be used for services, the other funds go toward administering the program or the other projects,” said Rebecca McCrary, housing and community development program manager with the city of Everett. Programs that the block grant has funded in the past include the minor home repair program. “This program helps people repair everything from a leaky faucet to adding safety handles in showers. This allows low-income senior citizens and disabled individuals to retain their independence,” said Hess. Recently the program also helped the Marysville Boys & Girls Club to replace their ceiling and heating system. “The ceiling tiles were actually falling down while kids were playing in the gym,” said Hess. “And they had to limit

the programs in the winter to just the ones they could run in their small rooms with space heaters,” she said. Direct housing projects have also been a part of the block grant in the past, such as one project from the Everett Housing Authority that is almost finished now. “Clare’s Place is supportive housing for chronically homeless individuals and it will open up next year. The housing authority is providing the rental vouchers for the people who will live there,” said McCrary. A new HopeWorks building in Everett was also supported by the block grant. The program will have job training on the ground floor with housing on top. “Homeless or formerly homeless will live there and also go to school and learn a trade,” said McCrary. Those who want to sub-

Marysville residents reminded of fireworks ban, fine increases Following a successful reduction in property damage and injuries as the result of a citywide fireworks ban, the city of Marysville and Marysville Fire District remind residents that all individual use of fireworks is illegal. The fine for discharging consumer fireworks in the city will increase this year to $513, as previously announced. Since the ban went into effect in 2017, Marysville has seen decreases in the number of fireworks-related injuries, fires and other incidents. The Marysville Fire District did not respond to a single fireworks-related incident within city limits during the

2018 July 4th holiday. “It’s clear the fireworks ban is helping reduce property damage and injuries in our community,” Fire Marshal Tom Maloney said. “We appreciate our residents choosing to celebrate safely and ask everyone to again leave the fireworks to the professionals.” The fireworks ban prohibits the use, discharge, sale or trade of any fireworks, including sparklers and “consumer” fireworks, within city limits. People who violate the ban will face a $513 fine (increased from $257 in 2018) and possible jail time, depending on the violation. Any fire-

works found will also be confiscated by Marysville Police, who will be conducting extra patrols on and around the July 4th holiday. City residents are asked to report illegal fireworks using the non-emergency phone line at 425-407-3999. To keep emergency phone lines open, please avoid calling 911 unless there is an immediate threat to life or property. The ban does not include authorized public displays by professional pyrotechnicians, as permitted by the Fire Marshal.

Marysville Soroptimists hand out scholarships to local students By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com

The Marysville Soroptimist Club gave $18,000 to students for their college education during their annual scholarships awards breakfast on June 4. Kathie Roon, co-president of the club, said the scholarships to Marysville students is one of the biggest ways they help the community each year. “We feel honored to help these young women on their way to their college educations,” she said. The local service club focuses on women and girls and gave away 12 scholarships to girl students from Marysville this year, each for $1,500. Dave Carpenter, career counselor at MarysvillePilchuck High School, presented many of the scholarships and said he was look-

said Carpenter. “Two years ago I was super excited about the young ladies in our district and the rewards of that are in this room today,” he said. Students were awarded for a variety of reasons, including if they were active in the community. Local student Emily Anderson is going to the University of Washington to potentially study environmental science and has a lot of involvement in Marysville activities. “She does a whole ton of community service, which is obviously huge for Soroptimist. She’s always giving back,” said Carpenter. Mar ysv i l le-Pi lchuck High School student Ivanna Garza was also awarded in

part because of her service. “Her resume is so long with community service, the amount she’s given back is unbelievable,” said Carpenter. Garza said she hopes to continue service work in her future or possibly as a career. “I wasn’t entirely sure what box I wanted to put myself in, but overall I want to study international business and want to help homeless women and children and help an organization that way,” she said. Many of the students awarded scholarships said they hoped to start or be a part of an organization that helps their community. “I’m going to UW to attend the Foster School of Business and one day I hope to open my own nonprofit,” said local student Brielle Sydow. Mar ysville-Pilchuck High School student Natalia Zieroth finished in the top 20 in state in golf this year and is headed to the University of Idaho for a specialized golf program. “I want to become PGA certified and work in the golf industry as a teaching pro. I want to start a program for women, youth and minorities to learn the game,” she said. Marysville City Council member Kamille Norton attended the breakfast and encouraged the students to continue working toward their goals. “I just want to congratulate you for the great work you’ve done to get here and just want to encourage you to keep going,” she said.

Lakewood names valedictorian, salutatorians By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com

Lakewood High School announced its valedictorian, Kimmy Epperson, and two salutatorians, Joseph Knoth and Jade Lundquist, this June. The three students are active members of their school and say they will miss the experiences of being students there. “I’m excited to go on to college, but also I’m going to miss being at high school and especially being in band, going to every football game, every basketball game, and just being a student there, and celebrating our community and school. I’m going to miss that,” said Kimmy Epperson. She said that her favorite parts of school were doing extra-curricular activities like National Honor Society and sports. Volleyball was her favorite sport to participate in. “I just have a passion for the sport and this year our team was super close and we were a big family,” she said.

Lakewood High School for making this place like a second home,” she said. Students said they will miss all the clubs and sports they got to be a part of during their time at the school. “I think the more we get involved, the more we come together and the more we’ve learned,” said Williams. “You can learn just as much working together in an activity as you could in the classroom,” he said. Superintendent Michael Mack has known many of the students since he worked at Lakewood Middle School before leading the district. “I first met you in sixth grade and you were sixth graders with a lot of pep and vinegar and look where you are now,” he said. Mack appreciated how much students worked to get to this point. “Thanks for your laughters. Thanks for accepting challenges. Thanks for failing and then getting up. Thanks for listening most of the time,” he said. Lakewood High School Principal Jeanette Grisham was also happy she was able to lead the school this past year with this graduating class. “As I look out tonight over all of our seniors I see many things. I see students who know how to persevere in the face of obstacles. I see students who know how to be flexible. I see students that are kind to one another and accepting,” she said. Teachers and students encouraged graduates to live a life they could be proud of. “Don’t let society define success in your life,” said Epperson. “Whoever you are,

After graduating she plans to finish her associate’s degree at Everett Community College and then transfer to Northwest University for a nursing degree. Her mother is a nurse practitioner who has done service work in Africa, which Epperson herself has helped with. “I spent a lot of my time there watching and helping, and my passion for it grew over time,” Epperson said. “It was an amazing experience and I really want to go back." Salutatorian Jade Lundquist also participated a lot in her community, especially with the National Honor Society where she has given her required 150 hours of volunteering for the last three years. “It’s given me an opportunity to go out in the community and participate in things,” she said. “I’ve volunteered at the Marysville Food Bank, tutoring here after school, and I even spent a summer in Seattle volunteering at a school where they are first learn-

whatever you do, whoever you love, follow your passions." “How will you treat other people? Will you treat them with compassion and understanding, or will you treat them with hate and intoler-

ing English,” she said. Next year Lundquist is heading to New York to attend the University of Rochester to study in an accelerated master’s degree program in education. Lundquist said she has enjoyed her teachers at Lakewood High School and they inspired her to get into education. “I’ve really appreciated everything they have done for me and I feel like I wanted to continue that,” she said. Salutatorian Joseph Knoth spent some of his time in Running Start at Everett Community College and also appreciated his time at Lakewood High School. “One thing that I don’t get at Everett is the community aspect of things. You don’t get that feeling of everyone talking together like you do at Lakewood,” he said. He said his favorite part of his school was being in the FIRST Robotics Club. “We have a six-week build program where we have to build a robot to compete in a prompt,” said

I like about this recipe is it’s easy to prepare and tastes as good as it looks. These hash brown nests are the perfect dish for a weekend brunch! This recipe also allows the home chef to be very creative. They can add different types of cheese and meat options or seafood to the scrambled eggs.

Snohomish County gets wins in Washington State budget

Every two years, the State Legislature meets to adopt a biennial budget. This year they met and approved the 2019-2021 operating, capital, and transportation budgets. Snohomish County and its partners lobbied the legislature to make important investments in our county and we were very successful on multiple fronts. In this month’s column, I will highlight some of the significant wins in the Washington State budget for Snohomish County residents. RAP Program As I have written before, the Regional Apprenticeship Pathways (RAP) Program is a collaborative effort between the local school districts, Everett Community College, labor groups, industry, and local government to prepare more students for careers in the construction and building trades. We lobbied successfully for $1.5 million in ongoing funding in the State’s operating budget to fund the program. I will be dedicating a future column to the RAP Program and the implementation work which is ongoing. Snohomish County Capital Requests Snohomish County requested funding for multiple projects in the State’s capital budget which funds local community construction projects. The adopted capital budget includes funding for the Sheriff ’s South Precinct and Evergreen Speedway. Due to population growth and additional demands on our Sheriff ’s office, the South

Nate Nehring Precinct is in desperate need of replacement. Snohomish County has committed $2 million to this project and the capital budget included $1 million to help us move forward. The Evergreen Speedway, located at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds, is a huge driver for the local economy and is looking to expand its NASCAR appeal. As part of that effort, we requested state capital dollars to help with improvements and expansion of the speedway. The capital budget included $150,000 for the project and the operator has already invested $500,000 into the speedway. Other Local and Community Projects In all, Snohomish County received $12.6 million in local and community projects from the adopted 2019-2021 State capital budget. Close to $1.2 million of that is in projects here in North Snohomish County including: n $530,000 to the Arlington Boys and Girls Club for parking and safety improvements n $412,000 to the City of Granite Falls for their police department renovation

project n $300,000 for the State Route 530 “Oso” Slide Memorial Project Transportation Investments While the legislature did not pass a much anticipated transportation package, they did pass a transportation budget that builds on some of the past transportation investments that have been made. In total, Snohomish County will see almost $1.8 billion in new transportation investments over the next ten years. Some projects affecting North Snohomish County residents include: n $215 million in additional improvements to the Highway 9 corridor n $30 million in additional investments to the I-5 interchanges at 116th St. and 88th St. n $1.6 million to study congestion improvements on the US 2 trestle We are grateful to our partners in the State Legislature for their continued investments in important project in Snohomish County. Please join me in thanking them for making our communities a priority in Olympia. Nate Nehring is a member of the Snohomish County Council and represents District 1 which includes Arlington, Darrington, Granite Falls, Marysville, Stanwood, and unincorporated north county. He can be reached by email at Nate.Nehring@ snoco.org or by phone at 425388-3494.

DABA plans June 28 concert at Legion Park By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com The Downtown Arlington Business Association will host a concert featuring Aaron Crawford at Legion Park on June 28. The free concert will be from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the downtown park. Vendors and food trucks are expected to begin setting up at about 4 p.m. A beer garden is expected to be set up around Legion Park around 6 p.m. as well. Kids will be allowed in the park, but adults will not be able to take alcohol out of the park during that time. This is the first time that the Downtown Arlington Business Association (DABA) has tried a concert to begin the summer season and may continue with it each year if it is successful. “This is sort of supposed to be a summer kick off concert to help with the city’s concert series,” said Lisa Cisneros, DABA president. She said that Crawford is a national recording art-

ist from the county who has toured with some big names in country music. “There are some bigger bands that have a following and I thought how fun it would be to have some of those names come to town, and maybe they can bring their following with them and people can see the town of Arlington and see what we have,” said Cisneros. Crawford is an exciting musician, said Cisneros, who has seen him live once before. “I really like his performance. He’s a great entertainer,” she said. Most of the community’s concerts feature local talent, which is great, said Cisneros, but DABA was hoping to provide something different with the concert. “We have great talent here and people come to those bands too, but to highlight someone who may be able to entertain the community and bring in others is good,” she said. Cisneros said that DABA had been working on the concert with the original idea to bring back the ‘Bite

of Arlington’ to the town with a big music headliner. “But that was such a short time to try and plan and give notice for that,” she said. “Next year if we do this again we’ll have more time to bring in the restaurants

that want to be a part of it,” she said. They still hope to have a lot of food trucks and vendors at the event though. “The idea at the beginning was to have that Bite of Arlington and concert together, but with that

not happening we’ve still brought in some food vendors. We’re still in need of some and if we could get some more that would be nice as well,” she said. DABA is the primary organizer although other organizations have also

helped to sponsor the event, said Cisneros. If it is successful she hopes that DABA can bring back the summer kickoff concert next year. “It’s one of those firsttime events and we’ll see what works,” she said.

n WHISTLING GARDENER

Four good reasons to plant in June When we think of and pair of ring-necked doves the whole time. getting out and garIt is very peaceful that dening, the month of early in the morning, May most likely comes but also warm enough to mind. There is no to be able to dress lightly question that May is a and not be encumbered glorious month on our By Steve Smith by layers of clothes. Even northwest calendar to be outside and in the yard. But for with the occasional “June Gloom” me, mostly because I own a garden we often have, June is a lovely time center, May is shear madness with to work in the yard. I often hear the question: “Is it so much going on that it is all I can do to find a moment here and there too late to plant?” and my answer is to pull a few weeds and plant a few always: “It’s never too late to plant cool season veggies. June, on the and in fact, in the northwest, we other hand, is when I really get to can plant all year long!” What I play in my yard, for all sorts of rea- love about planting in June is that I know whatever I plunge into the sons… you should too. First off, I find myself overflow- ground this month will give me 90 ing with energy due to the long to 120 days of joy, all the way into days of sunlight (16 hours this time October. Unfortunately, you can’t of year). The other day I was out in say the same thing about seasonal the garden at 5 am planting some color items that were planted back summer color and was serenaded in March and April. They might by the resident robin, chickadee, still be growing, but are most likely

done blooming. June, on the other hand, is the ideal month to plant summer color. Here are a couple of my favorite “June stuff ” plants: Chocolate cosmos — These yummy smelling flowers are actually in the dahlia family, but have a smaller flower closer in size to cosmos. They are chocolate in color, also in fragrance, and are a must in my summer border. They will form a tuber, much like a dahlia, and in a mild winter will sometimes survive. They will form a loose mound of foliage (approximately 18 inches tall and as wide) with a constant supply of flowers all summer long. Plant this treat in full sun and don’t forget to pick a few flowers for a tasty smelling bouquet. Golden Delicious Pineapple Sage — I can’t wait until this plant arrives in the nursery. It sports golden foliage (which I am always a sucker for) that has a strong

pineapple scent when brushed up against. While it can produce red flowers late in the summer, I grow it specifically for the foliage. This plant can reach up to 3 feet tall, so give it a little space. Salvia — This is a large genus (including the above sage) of both hardy perennials and tender ones that we treat as annuals. I prefer the tender ones only because they will bloom all summer in my garden. ‘Amistad’ came on the scene a couple of years ago with stunning purple flowers and this year I have discovered ‘Rockin’ Fuchsia’ with electric fuchsia pink flowers. ‘Love and Wishes’ has deep purple flowers, ‘Wendy’s Wish’ is purple pink, ‘Ember’s Wish’ is bright red, and the fourth new flavor in the Wish series, ‘Kisses and Wishes’ has deep fuchsia colored flowers. All of these have dark green, glossy foliage with a compact growth habit reaching

around 30 inches tall. They will attract hummers and other pollinators and work well both in containers and in the ground, as long as they are in full sun. You can dig them up in the fall and hold them over in a cool garage. So to summarize, the planting season didn’t end on May 31st. June affords us extended daylight, comfortable temperatures, a vastly expanded selection, and the assurance that any seasonal color that we plant this month will continual to bloom all the way into October. Don’t put away your trowel, there must be a few bare spaces in your yard or an unused container that needs to be filled — come August and September you will be glad you did.
