Black Friday shoppers need to plan for heavy traffic near Marysville
Nov 24 2010, 9:29 AM
MARYSVILLE - It is not the busiest shopping day of the season, but the traffic around the malls and the crowding in the parking areas does come as quite a shock for many on Thanksgiving night and on Black Friday.
The Washington State Patrol, Tulalip Tribal Police and Marysville Police Department will be working together to ensure shoppers are traveling safely to and from their favorite shopping areas on Thanksgiving night, Friday, and remainder of the holiday weekend.
Motorists traveling on Interstate 5 in the Marysville/Arlington areas should anticipate congestion northbound and southbound on I-5 at 88th street (Exit 200) and 116th Street (Exit 202) and Exit 206 (Smokey Point). These roads lead to the busiest shopping areas in the north county area and are historically the heaviest traveled by shoppers. Local drivers should expect unusually high traffic volumes on surface streets leading up to and around the Shopping Centers late Thursday evening and Friday, according to Trooper Keith Leary, District 7 Public Information Officer for the Washington State Patrol.

Gooding’s Guide to Fitness - A Water Carol
Dec 09 2010, 11:01 AM
Image-wise, water is the Ebenezer Scrooge of beverages. Without considering its health benefits, many people may view water as miserly,boring, plain, unromantic and bland. Among all the other more colorful, sweet, fruity, chocolatey, bubbly options, water simply is ... simple. However, the health benefits of drinking water (yes—plain, filtered water) are extraordinarily remarkable. Before you say, “Bah Humbug”, consider these facts about water:
• A recent study reported that the odds of developing breast cancer were reduced by 79 percent, on average, among water drinkers. One possible explanation is that maintaining a dilute solution within cells reduces the potency of estrogen and other carcinogens that cause long-term tissue damage.
• Water forms the makeup of synovial fluid (the lubricating fluid between joints) and cerebrospinal fluid (fluid in between vertebrae and around the brain). If your body is even slightly dehydrated, less fluid is available in these areas to protect your joints, spine and brain.
