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

U-18 ASA Softball Girls, coached by Jeff Perrine, would like to give a huge thanks to all the many businesses that donated for the April 26 auction. There are too many to print, and we deeply appreciate each one of you.

Library thank you Citizens Committee for a New Arlington Library

  • Jun 4, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:36PM

A big thank you for all the voters who voted in favor of the New Arlington Library Bond on May 20. The majority, albeit, not a super majority, do want a new library and were willing to support it with a few cents a month.

I would like to thank the North County Fire Authority for the outstanding care that I received in May when I had gone to the fire department. Even though I am not in their district I was treated no differently.

Backfired

  • Feb 21, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:32PM

So, Hillary has made her stand on her vote to go to war, and will dig in her heels. And it amounts to the same old, sad old story of all the senators who voted yes with her: they relied on the president, and he misled them.

Why focus on Cuba?

  • Nov 7, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:32PM

Wouldnt you think George Bush had enough on his plate to deal with? Iraq. Afghanistan. Darfur. Sudan. Threats from Turkey over the Kurdish PKK attacks on their border. Iranian aspirations for more influence in the Middle East. Rising oil and gas prices. Runaway fires in California. The list grows longer day-by-day.

First task for Greene

  • Nov 7, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:32PM

I do not know Tom Greene as Ms. Debbie Wold does and I have no reason to doubt her assessment of Mr. Greene as an experienced man of honesty and integrity.

40 days for life

  • Nov 7, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:32PM

Since Sept. 26, I have been involved in the nationwide 40 Days for Life campaign at the Everett Planned Parenthood, lead by Michelle McIntyre. The purpose of 40 Days for Life is to end the scourge of abortion, especially at Planned Parenthood. Further, we seek to intercede before a woman makes a decision to terminate a pregnancy.

Job or education?

  • Jan 9, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:32PM

I recently found myself out of work. The falling real-estate market has caused the construction company I work(ed) for to discontinue building until the market demand increases. So, I filed for unemployment benefits. Meanwhile, I am two quarters away from graduating from ITT with my associates degree in Drafting. For the last year-and-a-half I have been attending school full-time, with a current GPA of 3.75, while working full-time as a residential concrete worker and full-time single parent who is also current on all child support. The State of Washington, in its infinite wisdom, has decided that because of my full time student status, I am unavailable for work and therefore has denied my unemployment benefits due. When did it become more important in this country to have a job than to have an education? Should our high school freshman focus their attention more on resume writing and job search tactics, so that when they turn 16 they can get a job and quit school altogether, after all, isnt a job more important? Perhaps instead of passing the WASL to graduate, they should be required to have a full-time job. What is the message we are teaching our children, dont bother with college, get a job, its more important? Ironically, these types of laws were passed by people with college educations and one wonders where they would be right now if they were taught by people who felt that work is more important than an education.

Paper mush

Sorry to bother you but so far it looks like the Arlington Times delivery system is not working not on Burn Road at least.

Library Bond

  • Mar 19, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:32PM

One might wonder why the Library Bond Committee is actively working on submitting another opportunity for the voters in the Library Capital Facilities Area to support the construction of a new library in Arlington.

Teachers

The front page of The Marysville Globe on March 12 read, Students may face discipline for walkout.

Thank You, Marysville Firefighters

  • Mar 19, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:32PM

On March 8, Marysvilles finest held a fundraiser called Fuel the Flaim at Bostons Pizza in Smokey Point. In a show of solidarity and compassion, Marysville Firefighters gave up their time for a Lake Stevens Firefighter/Paramedic who was stricken with cancer.

The Drop Box

  • Mar 19, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:31PM

The recent reaction to the presence of our drop-off box for donations of clothing, in a letter in the Feb. 29 edition of The Marysville Globe, indicates a lack of knowledge about Northwest Centers place in Skagit County and surrounding communities. There is much more to this bin than meets the eye.

Levy or assessed value?

  • Mar 19, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:31PM

The front-page article of Feb. 27, Local Tax Hike Highest in County, I believe is misleading. The article suggests the increase in residential property taxes was due in large part to school levies. In reviewing my yearly real estate tax summaries from the Snohomish County Treasurer, I see the levy rate has actually decreased, while the assessed value of land increased dramatically and buildings somewhat less dramatically.

Good Wages

  • Mar 19, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:31PM

Those governments who profess to be concerned about our potential slippage into a Bush recession should take heed of the words of one of our earliest industrial tycoons. Nearly 100 years ago Henry Ford wrote, an unemployed man is an out-of-work customer. He cannot buy. An underpaid man is a customer reduced in purchasing power. He cannot buy. Business depression is caused by weakened purchasing power. The cure of business depression is purchasing power and the source of purchasing power is wages.

Deserve accolades, not punishment

  • Mar 19, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:31PM

Regarding the recent staged walkout of Totem Middle School Students, it is my opinion that nothing like this occurs unless things are at crisis stage. These children are crying out for help and relief from a dysfunctional and intolerable lack of safety. I applaud their strength and courage to do what was necessary to get the communitys attention.
