M'ville enjoys Strawberry Festival By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com With a parade, a talent show, a fashion show, a carnival and much more the Strawberry Festival returned to Marysville last week. This year's festival ran from June 8 to June 16. Typically the largest celebration each year for Marysville, the festival has become a tradition for many in the community that they spend with their families. "I hope this festival means a lot. This is our 88th year and we try very hard to make our community proud and hopefully they enjoy it," said Jodi Hiatt, president of Maryfest, the nonprofit organization that runs the festival.

made it to one of the biggest days of our lives.” Valedictorian Jeffrey Andrews said he, like many students, let time slip by without appreciating what they had. “In elementary school we just wanted to be in middle school. In middle school we just wanted to be in high school. And in high school we just wanted to graduate,” he said. “Let’s slow down, smell the roses and reflect on our experiences,” he said. Now that it’s over, Andrews said that the senior year was the end of a lot of experiences that he will miss. “It’s the last time going to a sports game, last time going to school lunch, and tonight will be the last time that we’re all together,” he said. Arlington school officials said they were excited to see the class graduate and were happy for the students. “I’ve seen many instances of you being character strong and serving others. I’m extremely proud of you and honored to be a part of your learning journey,” said Arlington School Dis-

trict Superintendent Chrys Sweeting. There were eight valedictorians and 19 students with a GPA of 3.9 or higher in this graduating class, said Arlington High School Principal Duane Fish. “In my seven years as a principal this is by far one of the hardest working classes I have had the pleasure to serve,” he said. He also highlighted the numerous sports teams that went to compete in their playoffs or at state this year and the many seniors who were recognized with awards throughout the year. “The class of 2019 also had some of the best marching, concert and jazz bands in the entire state,” said Fish. One of the school’s jazz bands came in second at the Fullerton Jazz Festival this year. Andrews said that the graduated students now have a chance to continue that work outside of their school. “We all have amazing hopes that this room is full of future engineers, doctors, teachers and other occupations that will change the world for generations,” he said. The ceremony also gave special recognition to one student that has passed away, Jovon “Jojo” Mangual,

who would have graduated with this class. “On March 22, 2014, at 10:37 a.m. the Oso mudslide took the lives of many residents of our community,” said student Aidan Espinoza. One of those who passed away was Mangual. “Today we know that Jojo is with us in spirit and we want to thank all the family members who are in attendance today for the ceremony,” said Espinoza. An empty seat was held in the middle of the graduating students in recognition of Mangual.

Lakewood selects new superintendent By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com The Lakewood School Board selected Scott Peacock, Deputy Superintendent of the Snohomish School District, to be the next superintendent of the local school district. The school board announced the decision during a June 14 board meeting and only the contract remains to be signed. “We have agreed on a contract already so it’s just a matter of presenting that to Scott,” said School Board president Jahna Smith. “I think it is just a formality at this point,” she said. Peacock has been with the Snohomish School District since 1993. He has served the last year as the deputy superintendent where he looks over the Teaching and Learning

Department and also assumed responsibilities over the district’s special education. Before this year he served as assistant superintendent, a middle school principal, an assistant principal and as an English and history teacher. Current Superintendent Michael Mack announced in April that he would be leaving the district and the School Board has been working to find a replacement since then. “We started it with 18 candidates, it was tough to get to seven, even tougher to get to three,” said School Board member Larry Bean. The final three candidates came in to spend a day at the district between June 10 to 12. There they met parents, staff and students and the school board gathered community feedback. Smith said that she was

happy that the community gave their input in the process. “I really walked in last night thinking we have an open discussion, and after reading all the feedback and research, and talking with people in the community, I really feel like the decision was clear,” she said. Smith said that Peacock had more qualities that they were looking for than the other candidates, although she said that any of the final three candidates would have been a good choice. “I think unanimously we really felt that he was the full package. He had the depth and skill set we were looking for,” she said. “He’s deputy superintendent with the Snohomish School District and has experience dealing with special education, teaching and learning,” she said. School Board member

Leaha Boser said she was impressed with Peacock’s drive to help students. “I think he had a true passion for education and students' well-being. You could tell as we went through the day and I think the other staff could tell as well, so for me that was huge to have someone who clearly wanted the students to succeed,” she said. School Board member Sandy Gotts said that Peacock's experience in a small community also made him a good fit for the district. “I think the other thing that was outstanding with Scott is that he shared a lot about community. Lakewood is a small community and the district is really the star of this area,” she said. Gotts said that the area’s growth is one of the biggest challenges Peacock will have to handle in the coming years.

“We’re a growing district, as well, so we’re going to need a lot of that forward thinking, fiscal thinking that he has,” she said. Peacock said that he, too, was happy to come to another small community. “The closer I looked at the Lakewood School District, the more I could see it was a community that really comes together around its schools, and that’s why I wanted to be a part of it,” he said. He said that one of his best qualities he hopes to bring to the district is his “capacity for listening and being present with people.” Peacock said that he is looking forward to helping

Arlington Bike Rodeo set for June 22 Local children will be able to get free bike helmets, ride through an obstacle course and get safety tips at the Arlington Community Bike Rodeo on June 22, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Legion Park parking lot. “It will help kids in our community have some basic safety information around biking,” said Kristin Banfield, communications manager for the city of Arlington. Arlington police officers will help provide tips to kids and also give them helmets if they need one. “We’re making sure that they have a helmet and that the helmet is fitted properly,” said Banfield. Helmets of all different sizes will be available at the event. “We had generous donations from numerous organizations, including Stilly Valley Health Connections and S&S Roofing,” said Banfield. A bike course will also be available for the kids to ride through. Families and children should bring their own bicycles to the event. “Volunteers from the Arlington Police Department will also be registering bikes at the event,” said Banfield. Registering bikes can help people recover them faster if lost or stolen, said Banfield. There will be refreshments available from some vendors at the event, and the Arlington Farmers Market will be happening in the same parking lot at the same time.

Arlington police officers hope to improve bike safety with the event, however they also wanted to support the Arlington Community Resource Center. “It's being organized in part as a fundraiser for the Arlington Community Resource Center,” said Banfield. “The center provides valuable services in our community, helping those

in need get connected to organizations that can help them, getting people into housing that need it, or providing short-term services." The police department wanted to do something to support the local resource center, said Banfield, in part because the two often work together and many officers are familiar with the work the center does.

“The center has been such a good partner to the community,” said Banfield. Around six to eight bikes are planned to be raffled at the event, with proceeds going to the center. “Those bikes were originally donated to the resource center and this is a great way to partner and raffle them off together,” said Banfield.

Steelheads battle to a draw against Nido Aguila Seattle By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com

The Snohomish County FC Steelheads took on Nido Aguila Seattle in the battle of the undefeated teams for the Western Washington Premier League on June 16. The Steelheads entered the day on a 3-0-2 record while Nido Aguila came in with one extra win, 4-0-2. Snohomish County FC came out playing organized defense and made it a point to keep Seattle from getting deep into their territory. The Steelheads kept them at bay and managed to score the first goal of the day late in the first half, going up 1-0. Nido Aguila came out fast in the second half and slipped through the Steelhead defense to tie up the match 1-1 in the first few minutes. Through the rest of the match both teams weren’t able to convert on their opportunities as they walked away with the 1-1 draw. “I think we are the most organized team in the league. We had a lot of chances where we should have scored, but we are having trouble finishing right now as a team. We played great defense, but they just happen to have that one beautiful goal that made it a draw,” said Snohomish County FC Head Coach Daghan Kesim. Devin Shull was the only player to

score for the Steelheads as he managed to find the back of the net off of a deflection from the Nido Aguila keeper. On the defensive end, Snohomish County FC were led by their centerback John Troka and their two keepers Luke Brezak and Dorian Lair. Troka worked alongside both keepers as they organized the defense and kept the Steelheads in good situations to keep Seattle at bay. “The players attitudes and their willingness to listen to the system has

been the difference for us. I have to give them all the credit for working as a team and being disciplined all season,” said Coach Kesim. After this match, the Steelheads have one home match for the rest of the season as they will take on the Grays Harbor FC Gulls on Saturday, July 13, at 4 p.m. Tickets for the match cost $5 while children six and under can attend for free.

Arlington Track and Field will hold summer camp By Andrew Hines sports@northcountyoutlook.com

Coming off another strong season for Arlington Track and Field, the coaches and athletes will be coming together again to put on their second annual Summer Camp. The camp will be held from Thursday, July 11, to Saturday, July 13, from 3-5:30 p.m. It will be held at the Arlington High School Stadium and is open to anyone entering the 4th9th grades that’s looking to experience the long list of

events that track and field has to offer. The Eagles’ Summer Camp will cost $40 per participant and includes a free Arlington T-shirt. Almost all of the events will be covered over the first two days of the camp and will culminate with a mini track meet on the final day. “It’s a short and quick camp, but I think it’s packed full of a lot of fun and learning in that time. We have really skilled athletes, that have accom-

plished a lot in their time here, and a group of highlevel coaches,” said Eagles’ booster and camp organizer Angie Donnelson. Arlington has been one of the best programs in the state for the last decade and will provide each young athlete with all of the knowledge they’ll need to be successful. Not only will coaches be guiding the camp, but also high-level varsity athletes as well. The list of athletes that will be coaching include Jersey Heiss, Jaden Ro-

Roskelley placed fifth in the high jump at State and also placed in the top-15 of the Washington State Decathlon earlier this month. Emerson ran a leg of the 4x400-meter relay as a freshman at State this last season, and also placed in the top 11 in the 1,600- and 3,200-meter races at the District One Championships. “My favorite part is seeing how excited the kids get to find out how they placed in the final meet and seeing them get better each day throughout the camp,” said Donnelson.

Jarred Rome competes in the Finals of the Discus Throw at the 2005 IAAF World Championships.

Rome to be inducted into Hall of Fame By Andrew Hines sports@northcountyoutlook.com Former MarysvillePilchuck graduate, Class of 1995, Jarred Rome will be inducted into the 2019 Snohomish County Sports Hall of Fame. Rome played football, basketball and competed in track and field during his time as a Tomahawk. After graduating from MarysvillePilchuck he went on to have a long and successful career as one of the best discus throwers in the world. “I never really thought I would accomplish the things that I did. Originally I just wanted to make sure I could go to college. By my sophomore year I was number one in the nation and it hit me so fast that I could be good at it,” said Rome. After high school he went on to compete at Boise State University where he would finish his collegiate career with school records in the indoor and outdoor discus and shot put, which he still holds today. He capped off his time at BSU by being a six-time NCAA Division I All-American. When talking about his early career Rome said, “It was extremely hard and without the support from my coaches, family and friends I wouldn’t have made it. So, this honor is just as much for them as it is for me.” In 2004, four years after Jarred graduated from BSU, he was considering retirement due to the time constraints of training and supporting himself with substitute teaching and a list of other jobs. He gave himself one last shot to compete at the professional level and qualified for the 2004 USA Olympic team. Following

Rome was still at the top of the ranks, third in the U.S.A. and top-10 in the world when he retired in 2013. He currently coaches at Boston University and runs clinics all over the country, including one back at Marysville-Pilchuck High School during the Spring. A banquet will be held for Jarred Rome and the rest of the 2019 Snohomish County Sports Hall of Fame inductees on Sept. 18. It will be held at the Edward D.

Fashion Show raises Zak trumpets way funds for scholarships to Talent Show win By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com

Students and community members showed off local fashions at the annual April Friesner Royalty Scholarship Fashion Show Luncheon on June 11. Clothes from local stores and boutiques were on display throughout the luncheon. “This is one of the great events every year that kind of kicks off Strawberry Festival week,” said Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring, who was the volunteer emcee for this year’s event. The event is traditionally held at Leifer Manor, but has moved to the Marysville Opera House. “This year we’re thrilled to be in the iconic Marysville Opera House, the building that has served on and off as a social meeting place for the community for decades,” said Maryfest President Jodi Hiatt. The event brings together Marysville community members for an afternoon of lunch and fashion. “I think people like the community and seeing other businesses and people they know in the community. Just sitting back and getting together once a year,” said Leslie Buell, chairperson of this year’s fashion show. Lunch is also served by a local restaurant for community members to enjoy. “I think I like the lunch and getting together and eating,”

said Buell. Buell said that lots of community members helped this year to create an enjoyable show. “Classique Design created the balloon frame. It was great having the mayor as our emcee this year. So many people stepped up to help this year,” she said. Local students and community members served as the models for the clothes provided by local businesses. “We truly want to thank these sponsors and the people who have made this possible with these clothes,” said Nehring. This year fashion was provided by Hilton Pharmacy, J.C. Penney, Wrenhaven Vintage Market, Renee’s, BoHo Chic Boutique, Coastal Farm and A.C. Mora’s Boutique. The Marysville Opera House was also filled with people for the show this year. “It was a huge success. We sold 18 fully reserved tables and more tickets,” said Buell. The fashion show raises funds for the April Friesner Royalty Scholarship which is given to the Royalty of the festival each year. “This is so much more than just a fashion show, the money that is raised here goes to the Memorial Royalty Scholarship Fund in April’s name,” said Nehring. Friesner was a long-time Maryfest volunteer. “She was an essential vol-

A Grace Academy alumnus showed his jazz chops June 13 during the Strawberry Festival Talent Show. Trumpeter Joe Zak wowed the Talent Show crowd when he performed his rendition of “Misty” on the stage at the MarysvillePilchuck High School Performing Arts Center. His performance earned him best overall winner of the annual contest. “I honestly thought it would be a great representation of this festival,” Zak said of his choice of music. He added the piece he chose channels a fun and joyful spirit, which is similar to the Strawberry Festival. Zak, who graduated from Grace Academy in 2016, will enter his senior year in the fall at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn. He is majoring in Music Business and he hopes to someday own a jazz club. He’s played the trumpet since he was 8-years-old and has performed throughout Tacoma and Seattle. He was one of 23 acts performing June 13 with an 85-year age range between the oldest and youngest performers. Several dance teams, pianists, duos, and soloists performed in front of a panel of five judges consisting of business and community leaders from the Marysville area.

and “being able to do what I love to do taught me to work hard,” Sydow said. The lessons she learned through dance came naturally because of her desire to do it, she said. “Dance taught me to follow through on my goals,” Sydow said. She also learned that “sometimes we need to take a step back and breathe. It taught me not to compare myself to others,” she said. Students also thanked the many teachers and other staff who helped the class. “None of us could have made it here without your endless love and support, whether you offered us a snack when we forgot to bring our lunch, or just being someone to talk to,” said Sydow. “Thank you to my friends, teachers and coaches for always supporting me along the way,” said Jaramillo.

Valedictorian David Samaniego talked about middle school memories like the decision to pick your high school. “I remember the classroom I was in was buzzing with nervousness as we discussed and debated the options,” he said.

awarded is “approaching $1 million,” said Zimmerman. Seniors also helped their fellow students this year. “Our seniors instituted the Charger closet, a place where students on campus can equip themselves with clothes, backpacks, toothbrushes and anything else they need to be a successful student without worry about their ability to pay,” said Zimmerman. Through all the success and work many of the students have become close and formed a community, said ASB president Tina Do. “Some of us may have known each other since elementary school. Some we met just this year. But we all became family,” she said. Now students will be leaving that community and school behind. “Now it’s our time to step into the world,” said valedictorian Amalea Lovold. “Now’s the time to find out what you want to do in your life and find your passion,” she said. Zimmerman said that teachers were happy to have the Class of 2019 to teach. “As a staff we are extremely proud of the efforts, persistence and growth that you have demonstrated to be here tonight,” he said. Parents were also recognized for their efforts. “Students would not have made it to this point in their lives without the love and support of their parents,” said Zimmerman. “We can’t forget our families,” said Do. “Thank you for always pushing us." Finally, students thanked teachers and staff for being supportive. “Tonight is the night we say goodbye to our many wonderful teachers, staff, administrators, counselors, coaches and classmates,” said Weller. “For the past 13 years we have been supported by our school district, schools, administrators, teachers and families,” Weller said.

Practical sun safety tips to reduce exposure risks This week marks the official start of summer. As the days grow warmer, it’s the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the weather. Enjoying the sunshine and the great outdoors is an important part of maintaining health and wellness. However, spending more time in the sun can increase risks for skin cancer and premature aging of the skin. This month’s article is intended to help reduce risks for skin cancer by dispelling myths, allaying fears about sunscreen and offering practical sun safety tips to reduce exposure. Commonly, patients tell me that they do not apply sunscreen. There are a variety of reasons they cite as their rationale for not using sunscreen. The common reasons include: the desire to get Vitamin D from the sun, concerns about the ingredients in sunscreen and the belief that if their skin does not burn easily they are not at risk for skin cancer. Skin cancer can affect anyone regardless of skin color. Some types of skin cancer are slow growing and less likely to spread to other areas. Melanoma is a fast growing skin cancer with the ability to spread to other sites and it can be fatal if not detected early. Demographics for the incidence of melanoma in 2016, showed that the highest incidence occurred in white males. Washington is among the top 10 states with the highest incidence of melanoma. If you think that because your skin does not burn in the sun that you are not at risk for skin cancer, think again. When skin is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun, it causes an increase in the production of a pigment called melanin which acts as a filter against the sun's rays. This reaction produces a tan. Over time the sun causes damage to the DNA of these pigment producing cells and leads to freckling, age spots and — more seriously — contributes to the development of melanoma and other skin cancers. Nearly all skin cancers could be prevented by limiting unprotected exposure to UV rays from the sun. Sun exposure on the bare skin starts a biochemical process that helps the body produce Vitamin D. There’s a fine balance between sun safety and Vitamin D production. It’s not necessary to tan or burn to make Vitamin D from the sun. The Skin Cancer Foundation notes while proponents for obtaining Vitamin D from the sun recommend only exposing the skin without sunscreen 2 to 3 times weekly for 10 to 15 minutes, it is not the safest way for the body to receive Vitamin D. Unfortunately, within 10-15 minutes fairskinned people start to burn and many people forget to apply sunscreen after this interval.

Dr. Stacie Wells When it comes to choosing a sunscreen there is growing concern about ingredients that have been linked to hormone disruption, enhanced oxidative damage of the skin and allergic reactions (not to mention negatively impacting the health of coral reefs). These chemicals of concern include sunscreen ingredients like oxybenzone, octinoxate, homosalate, octocrylene and retinyl palmitate. The Food and Drug Administration is currently in the process of reviewing how ingredients in sunscreen are evaluated for safety. My top recommendation is to use a mineral-based sunscreen made from zinc oxide or titanium oxide. Yes, I know they can be thicker and require more patience and diligence to thoroughly apply. My second choice would be an avobenzone containing sunscreen. I caution against making homemade versions

of sunscreen which have not been proven to consistently protect against sunburn. And, in a pinch, if I had to be out in the sun and had no other option, I would use any sunscreen to prevent another sunburn that would increase my risk for melanoma regardless of the questionable ingredients listed above. Ways to decrease sun exposure and skin cancer risk include: n Seek shade under an umbrella, tree or shelter before you feel the effects of the sun. n Avoid the sun when UV rays are strongest, generally between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. n Wear protective clothing such as long sleeves and pants, when possible, and a wide brimmed hat that covers the ears and back of the neck. n Generously apply sunscreen SPF 30 or higher with broad spectrum protection. Ideally, apply 30 minutes before going outside. Wear sunscreen on cloudy days too. Don't forget to reapply every two hours and more often when swimming or sweating. You'll also want to reapply more often when doing activities on surfaces that reflect UV light like water, sand, snow and pavement. Make sure your sunscreen is not expired; out-dated sunscreen

loses its protective potency. n Wearing sunglasses prevents UV damage of the eyes which increases cataract formation and increase risks of ocular melanoma. n Know the UV Index (UVI) rate. This is a rating which gives an indication of potential danger of sun ex-

posure. The scale ranges from 1 to 11 and the higher the number, the greater the risk for UV skin damage. This information can be obtained on weather reports and apps. Talk to your naturopathic doctor about ways to decrease your risk for melanoma and other forms of cancer.

Communities FESTIVAL Continued from page 1

Show all led off the festival early in the schedule. "I liked all the events I've been to, like the Fashion Show, which had great clothing this year, or the Talent Show," said Hiatt. Later in the week the Funtastic Carnival set up for the festival. A Ferris wheel, the Gravitron and other classic rides and carnival games came to the field outside of Marysville Middle School for the carnival. Many local families come down for each festival for the rides. “It’s lots of fun, we come here every year,” said local parent Emily Marshall. “I’ve come for many, many, many years,” said local parent Rosie Anderson. “I have some older kids, too, so I’ve come here for lots of years." Asbery Field was the center of a lot of activity during the Strawberry Fes-

tival, including the Market in the Park, which brought numerous vendors down to the park. Everything from locally made salsa to henna to karate demonstrations were available at the market. Local resident Bruce Fuller is new to the area but said he dropped by to check out the market. “We saw it and just wanted to walk through and check things first,” he said. “It seems like it’s organized really nice, haven’t found any strawberries yet though,” he joked. Maryfest volunteers prepared Strawberry Shortcake near the market as part of the annual Strawberry Shortcake Eating Contest. Local kids raced to see who could eat their food the fastest without using their hands as part of the traditional competition. "It's awesome. My boys were looking forward to it and this is their first time entering, so third and fourth place isn't too bad," said lo-

The Tulalip Hawks cheerleaders march down State Avenue as part of the Strawberry Festival Grand Parade on June 15.



Strawberry Festival Queen Natalia Zieroth rides down State Avenue on Marysville's festival float in the Strawberry Festival Grand Parade on June 15. cal parent Amanda Bennett. The Car Show that has traditionally been part of the Asbery Field events returned this year as well. "It's a nice turnout, a good show," said local Rod Waters. He said he wished that the show had the typical car show sheets that allow you to write down who you are and what your car is. "You can go around and you can say 'that's the best engine in the show,' or 'those are some really nice wheels,'" he said. "Other than that though the show is great," he said. The Marysville Kiwanis Club ran the beer garden near the market. “This is one of our annual fundraisers that is probably one of the more profitable ones for our

scholarship fund. We’re trying to increase the amount of scholarship funds that we can offer,” said Kiwanis club member Dave Voigt. Voigt said that they enjoyed helping out at the festival. “We like being out here, the fellowship with our club members and enjoying the music and the festival energy,” he said. Finally, the Kiddies Parade and Grand Parade down State Avenue took place on June 15. The Grand Parade which happens as the sun is setting features floats and marchers from local businesses, schools, kids groups and festival royalty from Marysville and around the region. "I like the parade part because I get to see all our friends from the other festivals," said Hiatt. "I've gone to it in the past and it's one of the neatest parades around," said local parent Steve Sawyer. Families begin placing their chairs along State Avenue a day before the parade to reserve their spot. Bennett said she comes every year with her family and grabs her spot toward the end of the route. "We watch it from a place on Third Street, best spot right at the end," she said. "It's a long parade but it's a family tradition every year." The festival is the result of a lot of work from a volunteer team of community members. "All of the team, the festival board and the active members, have worked very hard and put in a lot of hours and they've done well," said Hiatt. She also wanted to thank the community and the city for their part in helping the festival as well. "Without the support and encouragement that the community gives us it wouldn't be much of a festival," she said.

Politics behind water quality rollback I don’t know how you can be against clean water, but some of the industries in our state are. They have convinced the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to roll back the water quality standards we established two years ago. Now being implemented, these standards are among the most protective of human health in the nation. They were developed in cooperation with industry after 20 years of effort. They reflect the truth of Washington state’s economic and cultural connection to water and water-based resources. The pulp and paper industry, oil companies and others are behind the rollback, using the same old excuses that industry has used for decades to avoid regulation. Automakers once claimed that air bags, unleaded gas and pollutionreducing catalytic converters – even seat belts – would spell the end of the auto industry. Too expensive, they said. The technology doesn’t exist. The standards are too high and their effectiveness is questionable. Today, the industry accepts those health and safety standards as the cost of doing business. In fact, safety ratings now drive profits. The auto industry was forced to innovate because we had the courage and wisdom to require them to meet new standards. When protective standards are based on good science, innovation will come. It always does. Industries

Lorraine Loomis were given generous implementation timelines to help foster solutions. But this water quality rollback undermines our ability to accept science, make changes and move forward together. The state’s old water standards were based on a fish consumption rate of 6.5 grams per day, or about one 8-ounce serving per month, and included a cancer risk rate of one in 1 million. The new standards are similar to Oregon’s. They include a consumption rate of 175 grams per day while keeping the same cancer risk rate. Agreeing to the 175 grams per day rate was a huge compromise by the tribes, who routinely consume much higher levels of fish and shellfish. Industry and EPA were at the table when we developed the new standards. What’s changed? Not the science. Not the need to protect our waters and our health from toxic chemicals. The only thing that’s changed is the politics of the last few years. Equally as disturbing is the way that EPA is rescinding our standards. There was no consultation with the tribes or state before taking

action. Even worse, EPA refuses to take any input from the state, tribes or public until after the rollback is complete. Here at home, the state of Washington is providing leadership on the issue.,The director of the state Department of Ecology, Maia Bellon, has repeatedly called on EPA to stand down and let the current standards be implemented. We also are encouraged by Gov. Jay Inslee and Attorney General Bob Ferguson, who called the action illegal and vowed to take the issue to court. They point out that under the federal Clean Water Act, tribes and states are responsible for setting water quality standards under their jurisdictions. Our water protection standards could be tied up in court for decades. EPA and industry are motivated by short-term profits at long-term expense to our health and the health of the environment, salmon, orcas and other natural resources. Sooner or later the bill always comes due. All of us who live here will be on the hook. We will pay for it with our health, quality of life and our natural resources. Being Frank is a monthly column written by the chair of the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission. As a statement from the NWIFC chair, the column represents the natural resources management interests and concerns of the treaty Indian tribes in western Washington.

Fundraiser planned for Oso memorial By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com Fundraising for the Oso slide memorial will continue this month with the PNW Paradise Gala that will be held in downtown Seattle. The event will happen at the Seattle Marriott Waterfront Ballroom on June 22, beginning at 6 p.m. There will be a live auction, live entertainment, dinner and a cocktail hour. Tickets are $150. The effort to build a permanent memorial at the site of the slide where 43 people passed away begin in earnest last year. “We have a temporary memorial that WSDOT help us set up with some trees, and that is great, but it’s not quite enough as it doesn’t tell the whole story,” said Dayn Brunner, who is part of the family fundraising committee for the project. Brunner’s lost his sister to the slide five years ago. “She was the only one who was driving at the time,” said Brunner. “Helping with this makes me feel really good. It’s kind of like therapy for me to help my sister’s legacy live on."

The planned memorial at the site would help preserve the memory of those who died, as well as explain the event for visitors, said Brunner. “It would tell the stories of the 43 victims, of the geological event, the survivors and recognize the response of the emergency responders,” he said. The upcoming PNW Paradise Gala will be the next fundraising event for the memorial. The live auction will include a number of items, said Brunner. “There’s a lot of stuff from the Stillaguamish Valley,” he said. That includes items like guided fishing tours, scenic tours and a one-hour helicopter tour. There are also some sports items available such as Seahawks tickets and a signed jersey and helmet from recently retired Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin. The total project is estimated to cost between $4 million to $6 million, said Brunner. “We don’t think it will cost that much in the end, because so many people have said they will donate

Because the site is on Snohomish County land there are some restrictions on what kind of donated labor they can use though, he said. Brunner added that the memorial will likely be completed in phases, and the first phase could include a parking lot for the site. He hopes to be able to finish that phase soon. “The fundraising has been going well so far,” said Brunner.

Snohomish County and the state of Washington have both supported the project with funds. Brunner said they received a lot of money from the state. “They told us not to expect that because it was so late in the budget cycle, but we still got it,” he said. A couple of other fundraisers have also raised funds for the memorial. For more information on the upcoming gala or to donate directly for the slide memorial, go to slidememorial.com.

Everything you ever wanted to know about lavender I couldn’t help some lime once a year. Lavender is but notice the drought tolerant, other day while once established, driving around and deer resistant. town, that lavenThe one and only der was coming drawback in my into bloom.

It turns out lavender tilizer. There is English Lavenhas been in production for over 2,500 years and there is der, Spanish Lavender, and quite a bit of info out there French Lavender. By far English lavender, and its to share. Lavender hails from many hybrids, are the most Western Europe, close to the popular.

Here sun as well, and if you re- are three new flavors that ally want to pamper it, apply just came in that you might

want to try out. Hidcote Superior — This is an English variety which is an improvement over the tried and true plain ‘Hidcote’. It is a compact form of the original, reaching only 12 to 14 inches tall, with deep, purple-blue flowers. Like all lavenders, it is fragrant, attracts butterflies, and will repel insects. Super Blue — According to Monrovia Nurseries, this variety has “fragrant wands of rich lavender-blue flowers that deliver a soothing scent in early and midsummer. Super Blue is perfect for borders or containers with neat, compact foliage. It has good rain and weather tolerance. The large, full blooms are excellent for cutting and drying." ‘Super Blue’ grows to 12 to 20 inches tall.

Wings of Night — This is a Spanish variety that forms an erect, dense shrub 2 to 3 feet tall with narrow blue-grey leaves. It blooms through spring and summer with short clusters of lavender flowers, each topped by a crown of showy purple bracts (the bracts look like small butterflies perched on the end of the stock). Here are a few more interesting facts about lavender from the website “Lavender Sense”… The ancient Greeks called Lavender “nardus” and it was one of the holy herbs mentioned in the bible in the ‘Song of Solomon’. Lavender derives its name from the Latin ‘lavare’ meaning ‘to wash." The Romans used Lavender to scent their baths, beds, clothes, and even hair. The oil is ex-

tracted from the flowers and used as a disinfectant, an antiseptic, an anti-inflammatory and for aromatherapy. An infusion of Lavender is claimed to soothe and heal insect bites, sunburns and small cuts, burns and inflammatory conditions and even acne, to name just a few uses. Dried Lavender flowers are used extensively for their fragrance, specifically as herbal fillers inside sachets to freshen linens, closets, and drawers. Lavender can also deliver a floral, slightly sweet, and elegant flavor to foods. In addition to all these uses, lavender is just plain nice to have in your garden and this is the perfect time to find your favorite varieties. Remember to plant them in a full sun, fast drain-
