The “small town” mentality of the Marysville City Council’s action on the subject of medical marijuana is appalling.
Saturday, May 14, is the annual Letter Carriers Food Drive. The donations raised through this event provide a major portion of the food required to serve Marysville families in need throughout the summer.
I recently read some survey results provided by the Snohomish Health District about the health habits of sixth, eighth, tenth, and 12th-grade students in Snohomish County. Use of alcohol and marijuana is still very prevalent; bullying is definitely an issue for our youth and statistically one-fifth of tenth graders reported they considered suicide in the past year.
Marysville School District has eight small learning communities (SLC) that serve high school students. The eight SLCs are International School of Communication, School for the Entrepreneur, Bio Med, Academy of Construction and Engineering, Pathways of Choice, Marysville Mountain View, Arts and Technology and Heritage.
Thank you so much to Richard Paige, manager of the Marysville Safeway store on State Avenue. Every Tuesday morning for 20 years he has hosted a Senior Coffee Klatch. Seniors gather from all around the area to meet and greet old and new friends.

By now, it should be common knowledge that Mark Roe has been serving citizens in the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office for over 23 years. He has handled numerous high profile criminal cases on behalf of citizens and served in various leadership roles throughout his career in the Prosecutor’s Office.
With the November elections coming up fast, it is important to remember why it is so important that each citizen cast his/her vote in every election. Try to erase from your memory banks what party you may affiliate with or who you love and who you may hate.
Thousands of items of clothing, school supplies, children’s books, and personal hygiene items were collected recently for the Kids Kloset, a non-profit organization in Arlington that provides clothing, school supplies and other necessities to school children in the Arlington, Darrington, and Lakewood school districts.
The Relay for Life keeps on giving even after the event is over. I would like to extend a big thank you to the Marysville Fire Department for their participation in the North Snohomish County Relay.
It seems that Mr. Kundu failed to read the statement on the Marysville School District web site: “… members of the board of education share a common vision for the Marysville School District. We seek to find ways to provide not just an adequate education for our children, but an excellent one.
I firmly believe that all children are capable of learning; I do not believe that any one specific racial group is superior or inferior to any other; I firmly believe that the Marysville School District is, and should always be, committed to all children in our district (including minority and tribal, ESL, special education, and 504 student cohorts, etc.).
