Kucinich for President

  • Dec 12, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:18PM

I support Dennis Kucinich for President because he is the only candidate in either party with a plan for universal, single-payer, not-for-profit health care that will protect all Americans. And it will be cheaper and better than the crazy system weve got today.

Thank you for papers

  • Dec 12, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:18PM

I am absolutely thrilled with the Marysville Globe and Arlington Times taking the progressive step of delivering their excellent newspapers free to our community. I am a long-time Marysville resident, mother, grandmother, public school teacher and community activist and have long appreciated the excellent news coverage of the papers as well as their dedication to community building. I was gratified to read Bob Graefs excellent and tolerant piece on the Ruckus over Illegal Immigrants and was so excited that it would be read by many more people because of this bold move for free subscriptions by our home-town newspapers.

Losing Ground

  • Dec 12, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:18PM

Emotional Issue

  • Dec 12, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:18PM

As a staff member at Archbishop Murphy High School, I feel compelled to respond to three claims in a recent sports opinion article (Football Karma? Nov. 28).

Worlds No. 1 Jailer

  • Dec 12, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:18PM

Punitive laws often remain on the books long after their usefulness. The 3-Strikes laws are a case in point if, in fact, they were ever useful. Some 22 states that had adopted them have since changed them when they realized the injustices and the extreme expense connected to them.

Now is the time

  • Mar 5, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:18PM

Our Arlington Library gives us access to large collections of books, newspapers, magazines, movies and music. It hosts book clubs, performances and art, all for our education and entertainment and all free to use. We have important reasons to support funding a new library.

Why I value our library

  • Mar 5, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:18PM

As a child growing up in Seattle I was always fascinated by the downtown library on Fourth Avenue. Even though I did not check anything out, I enjoyed wandering through and just looking at all of the books on the shelves.

Rid County of FCCs

  • Mar 5, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:18PM

Three members of the Snohomish County Council took a very difficult stand this week and tried to institute a moratorium on Fully Contained Communities, Brian Sullivan, Dave Somers and Mike Cooper.

Support Arlington Library

  • Mar 5, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:18PM

I strongly support the Arlington Library bond and ask all concerned citizens to do so.

Yes on the library

  • Mar 5, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:18PM

I am sending this letter to encourage people to vote Yes for the new library.

Geography Lessons

  • Mar 5, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:18PM

The Nov. 20th Herald article talks about the Marysville Grove Elementary School. This is a campus for 550 students on 10 acres.

Boy Scouts say Thanks

  • Mar 5, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:18PM

I wish to thank all the people of the greater Marysville area for making our annual Christmas tree recycling a success. Your generous contributions to Boy Scout Troops 80, 81, 82, 84 and 419 help them to continue to provide a quality program for the boys.

Is it illegal?

  • Mar 5, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:18PM

I just received my 2008 Real Estate Tax statement. I was shocked by the fact that Snohomish County had raised my property taxes by over 13 percent. I immediately called several friends, who stated the same thing.

Refuting Adele

  • Nov 22, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:18PM

Examining one editorialists rant: he doth protest too much, me thinks.

No understanding of cultural war

  • Nov 22, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:18PM

In his letter of Nov. 8, Bob Henry asks two rhetorical questions. The implication of his letter and these questions is the U.S. should cut and run in Iraq, withdrawing from the field of battle and abandoning the Iraqi people. It is obvious that neither he nor others who have broached the same idea have any understanding of the cultural war being waged against Western Civilization nor knowledge of what will occur if the new political group in Washington, D.C., does surrender and retreat.

Bush just the whipping boy

  • Nov 22, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:17PM

The Democratic campaign for this Novembers election was based solely on hatred for President Bush. Instead of directing their efforts to defeat our enemy, they want to destroy this present Commander in Chief.

I-933 a choice between greed and good?

  • Nov 22, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:17PM

Mr. John Burbank states in his editorial in the Everett Herald, Wednesday, Nov. 15, that Initiative 933 was a choice between greed and public good. I resent that implication. I stand to lose several acres of land I purchased some 50 years ago that has a beautiful creek running through the middle of it.

Here are a few facts

  • Sep 5, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:17PM

The proposed Motocross Track complex along the Mountain Loop Highway has begun to stir debate, which is important toward the community making the best decision. The proposal can also generate arguments not based in reason and cloud the facts. Here are a few facts.

Not in my backyard, please

  • Sep 5, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:17PM

In response to Pro Motocross Track, I am all for family fun, I even think motocross is a fine sport. I grew up on motorcycles. However, I live one mile from the proposed Paul Thomas Motocross Complex outside Granite Fall on the Mountain Loop Highway and I do not live here so I can listen to seven days a week, nine hours (minimum) a day of motocross.

Thank you one cannot place a value on life

  • Sep 5, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:17PM

Lovick for sheriff

  • Oct 24, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:17PM

I am an active member of a local Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. The national body of our church once worked up the fortitude to discuss gay ordination. Of the 100 members present at the national synod, 60 voted for it, 40 against.

Simple majority

I am first a parent of two students who have very successfully navigated their ways through the Arlington School system and benefited tremendously from their experiences.

Barbara Tolbert for City Council

  • Oct 24, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:17PM

I was pleased, but not surprised, to see the Arlington Firefighters endorsement of Barbara Tolbert for Arlington City Council Position 3. Arlington would be well served having Barbara on the Council. Barbara Tolbert has been involved and contributing to our community for many years.

Thank you

On behalf of the Marysville Community Food Bank and its Board of Directors, I want to extend our deep appreciation to the Snohomish Camano Realtors for all their efforts in conducting a food drive Sept. 14 through Oct. 15. The results were far beyond our expectations, in both food and cash that were contributed.
