Are your pets ready when disaster hits?

  • Dec 27, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:31PM

The recent windstorm is one more real life reminder for all pet owners to be prepared to withstand power outages and harsh weather conditions. If pet owners will take these four steps before the next disaster hits, it can make a difference in the lives of their pets.

Thats a lot of tax dollars

  • Sep 12, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:31PM

A state study last year showed that 42 percent of newly incarcerated people in our correctional facilities had been there before and were repeat offenders. Between thousands of people recycling back into state prisons each year and the tough mandatory minimum sentencing laws, we are unable to build prisons as fast as we are filling them.

Thank you from the Salvation Army

  • Sep 12, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:31PM

On Aug. 24, The Salvation Army officially opened our satellite office in Marysville, Wash., designed to provide emergency family services to the communities of Marysville, Tulalip and northern Snohomish County. What was truly amazing to us was the wonderful reception we received from your community since we first announced our plans.

Reject I-937

  • Oct 11, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:31PM

The old phrase, The devil is in the details, has never been more accurate then when applied to Initiative 937.

Foundation of education

  • Oct 11, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:31PM

A good library is the foundation of an educated, well-informed and resourceful community. By voting yes on Nov. 7 for a bond to build a new Arlington library, you will have an opportunity to make a valuable investment in your community.

Thank you, Jubie family

For the past five years, the Marysville Community Food Bank has been very fortunate to have a caring family support us in so many ways, even though they were grieving themselves over the loss of their sister.

Thanks for doing the research

  • Dec 20, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:31PM

Thank you, thank you, Bob Graef, for doing the research and taking the time to add some of the missing tales of truth as to our own countrys wrong doing around the globe. I hope this can be an eye opener to those folks who persist in seeing us as the great and shining city on the hill full of mighty saints who can lead the whole world in the path of righteousness.

Wallet returned

  • Dec 20, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:31PM

I visited your town of Arlington Saturday, Dec. 2, for your annual bake sale to raise money for the town gazebo and had a wonderful day.

Need rehabilitative prison programs

  • Dec 20, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:31PM

Many folks view educational and training opportunities for those incarcerated as undeserved and incompatible with the desire to punish those who offend us. Offenders are sent to prison as punishment, not to be punished. Our treatment of those incarcerated has a direct impact on their success when released.

The headlines tell the story. Toyota No. 1 in world car sales. Environmentally based new jobs top 170,000 in Germany. Thousands of Chinese-produced CFLs (energy efficient light bulbs) saving money for American families. Germany leads world in Wind Power. Soy leads in solar cell applications.

Cinco de Mayo

  • May 16, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:30PM

Marysvilles First Annual Cinco de Mayo Community Festival was a huge success. More than 300 people came out to celebrate the shared traditions of our diverse community. We laughed, we sang, we played and we ate and ate and ate.

No alternative access

  • Sep 26, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:30PM

The proposed location for the Granite Falls Motocross Park entails a minimum of 15 miles of driving on two-lane roads from any of the nearest freeway off ramps to the. The final five miles of road, the Mountain Loop Highway, east of Granite Falls, is a winding, mountainous road with steep grades, particularly the long steep grade just prior to the project site known locally as Sand Hill. On the MLH, there is also the narrow Stillaguamish River Bridge, which creates numerous safety problems in itself.

Thank you

The city of Arlington started a Bus Bench Donation Program this summer to address the great shortage of benches at bus stops in Arlington. Of the 62 bus stop locations within the city, only 10 have benches and County Transit is only scheduled to install two new bench sites this year. At this rate, Arlington citizens would be standing or sitting on the ground at bus stops for a very long time.

Highest percentage

I would like to comment on Jay Hoods defense of our incarceration policy in last weeks letters section.

Time should fit the crime

  • Sep 26, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:30PM

I must respond to If you cant do the time, dont do the crime. Well, the incarcerated can do and are doing the time some 2.2 million of them in this country. I contend that the time should fit the crime, per our Bill of Rights, which states that cruel and unusual punishment should not be. Non-violent crimes are depicted as those where no weapons are involved and where no injuries are incurred.

Another motocross?

  • Sep 26, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:30PM

Do we really need another motocross track in Washington state? A five-minute Internet search brought to my attention that there are currently over 14 official motocross racing facilities and over 30 designated MX/ORV trails or parks in our fair state.

Still no crosswalk

  • Sep 26, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:30PM

Theres still no crosswalk in front of M-PHS? I cant believe that after a boy got hit by a bus and received a major settlement for getting hit there is still no crosswalk or anything in front of the high school.

All residents vote for Sheriff

  • Sep 26, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:30PM

Ive been working with Tom Greene for Sheriff for more than a year now. Ive found that hes the only candidate that actually has the ability, knowledge and credentials to step into the Sheriffs Office on day one and start work.

A tax on just existing

  • Sep 26, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:30PM

Hillary Clinton wants to force everyone all people in the country to pay for health care insurance, especially those who need it the least. The less you use it, the more you help pay for everyone else.

Random act of kindness

  • Nov 14, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:30PM

I just wanted to take a moment and share with you a very heartwarming story from last night involving two students from AHS. I just moved to Arlington and have found most everyone to be very kind and friendly, however, my experience last night made me thankful for the area my family now calls home.

OMCC Thank you

On behalf of the Operation Marysville Community Christmas committee, I would like to thank the Marysville community for their continuing support in our efforts to feed hungry families in Marysville during Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Voters do understand

  • Nov 14, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:30PM

Once again our State Supreme Court threw out a voter-approved initiative (I-747) where we, the citizens of Washington state, voted to limit property tax increases to a 1 percent cap. With this ruling, the law will allow increases up to 6 percent a year.

Thank you

  • Nov 14, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:30PM

This letter is to thank the Marysville Fire Department. We had an accident involving our 2-year-old grandson. The fire department/medic unit was so fast in responding to our 911 call. When they arrived, they were so thorough and re-assuring.
