Perennials bring annual excitement

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:28PM

My life is filled with plants. In my nursery I have thousands of them. In my garden probably hundreds. They range from trees to shrubs to ground covering perennials, bulbs and annuals. I love them all, some more than others, but they all bring me great joy at various times of the year. It is this late winter, early spring season that I get the greatest joy from my perennials. Here is why.

How far is it to Seattle?

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:42PM

How far is it to Seattle? That depends. Among other things, it depends on the time of day, the season, weather and the particular day of the week. Add the price of gas. According to the on-the-ground measure, Seattle is 38 miles away. My car's odometer agrees with maps that 38 miles is close to accurate. Though the road still measures 38 miles, I can feel the distance growing every year.

Last car for gas

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:41PM

So Sen. Maria Cantwell and Rep. Jay Inslee have asked President Bush to create a task force to investigate possible fraud and price gouging by oil and gas companies. Gasoline averaging $3.50 a gallon is dragging the economy into recession, they said in their letter to the president and it's time to get to the bottom of it. Remember back in the '70s when the Legislature created its own Select Committee on the Energy Crisis which traveled all over the state conducting hearings in communities where lines for gasoline were getting longer and longer?

Make your vote count

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:36PM

In 2006, the Arlington Library Bond went to a recount. Ultimately, the bond failed by just 28 votes. Sam Reed, our Secretary of State for Washington at the time, was there that day. He handed us a Voter Intent packet which shows the statewide standards on what is a vote. You can find this packet at www.secstate.wa.gov/elections. While observing that recount, I learned a few things about voting that I would like to share because they impacted the vote in 2006:

Marysville police

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:36PM

After being appointed by Mayor Dave Weiser as one of three Civil Service Commissioners, I have had the honor and privilege to serve one of the most professional police departments in Washington state, the men and women of the Marysville Police Department. During my nine-year tenure as a civil service commissioner, I have been rewarded with friendships that will remain fondly in my memory for years to come. One could not ask for more. I believe that we have accomplished much during those years and it is my reward to think that I have made a positive difference to all I've had the privilege to serve.

Vote before May 20

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:37PM

I wonder what motivates the 25 or more people who are working so tirelessly on the Committee for a New Arlington Library. They obviously realize how important a new and expanded library is for the Arlington community. I am thankful for their dedication to this very worthwhile cause. Our time at committee meetings, work parties, telephoning, various community organization presentations and distributing information to the voters is time well spent and shared by many on the committee.

Thank you
