Response to last week's letter Global Warming

  • May 21, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:41PM

Snohomish County will soon be holding community meetings to define rural character. This is an important process that demands citizen participation.

It is also important, however, that the county participate fully and actually make changes necessary to protect that rural environment.

I'd like to publicly thank Marysville Police Commander Robb Lamoureux, Parks and Recreation Director Jim Ballew and City Council member Jeff Vaughan for taking the time to meet with every student at Totem Middle School this past week to educate us about the problem of graffiti in our community and to engage our kids in the important job of coming up with a solution that works. In the session I attended, the kids were attentive and asked thoughtful questions. These city leaders made the powerful point that we really are all in this together hurting any part of our community is hurting ourselves. I believe the kids got the message loud and clear.

This week in history from The Marysville Globe archives 10 years ago 1998

n Major corporations involved in forestry, mining and fisheries bank on the public's belief in the idea of the balance of nature. But Mike Fellows, a science teacher at Lakewood High School, says "balance of nature is a fallacy." At least it is if chaos theory is correct and chaos theory is gaining credibility within the scientific community. Fellows' involvement with the scientific community at the university level helps fuel his passion for science, thinking the questions and searching for answers. Through his passion for exploring and learning, Fellows is bringing high-level physics and biology to Lakewood students. His classes encourage students to think critically, pose questions and organize experiments to determine answers. Through direct involvement in experiments, Fellows is illustrating to students that changes in environment can produce extreme consequences. So even in a sterile setting where the environment is controlled, there are always tiny variations that can be imperceptible, but can change the outcome of an experiment. With that premise, if an environment is changed through activities like logging, excavating or drag-net fishing, it is wrong to assume balance can be restored when the global and/or long-term effects of these changes is not known. Through hands-on experiments, Lakewood students are testing for the how and why of chaos theory and its practical application. Some of this advance biology research is because of their teacher's involvement in the Partnership in Science program. The program has helped pay for some special pieces of equipment. Partnership in Science is a mentorship program that gives high school teachers an opportunity to do vanguard research and work with colleagues at the university level. Fellows said he was fortunate he was picked to participate in the program for the last two years. As part of his involvement, Fellows won an exit grant of $3,000 as long as there was a community match of $2,000. Fellows said the local branch of Washington Mutual Bank put in most of the matching $2,000 with the balance coming from other community donations to the school. With the grant and the matching money, Fellows bought some nifty equipment allowing students to do advanced lab experiments. To test chaos theory and its premise that slight variations can cause major changes, students created small environmental "landscapes," miniature replicas of an ecological system found in nature. They will then test the effect of poison (in this case copper sulfate) on the environmental landscape. In an eight-week experiment, students created the landscapes (as well as a controlled landscape they used for comparison) in jars by putting together measured amounts of lake water, sand, sterilized straw and three types of algae.
