Tom Greene for Sheriff

  • Oct 31, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:30PM

I write in response to Mark Griswolds letter dated Oct. 24, 2007. Were you at the kick off breakfast that Ken Hutcherson spoke at Mr. Griswold? I was there and there was no mention of the gay issue. What Ken spoke on was adoption, which is an issue very close to the hearts of both Tom Greene and Ken Hutcherson.

Vote for fire district funds

  • Oct 18, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:30PM

The Marysville Fire District has a ballot measure for your consideration this fall. Proposition 1 would lift the fire levy lid from the current $0.85 to $1.15 per thousand of assessed valuation.

Vote yes on I-933

  • Oct 18, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:29PM

Everyone needs to vote yes for Initiative 933. We have never sent a letter to a newspaper before, but the ads for No on I-933 weighed heavy on our hearts. We have been working with rural landowners since 2003 helping them to steer through the expensive, complicated and unfriendly permit system because they are losing their lands, mostly due to river erosion. Because of this, we know government regulations and their responsiveness to the taxpayers they work for.

Imagine Childrens Museum celebrates two years

  • Oct 18, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:29PM

Happy, happy birthday to us. This month Imagine Childrens Museum is two years old and what an incredible two years it has been.

Insurance industry madder than a wet hen

  • Aug 1, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:29PM

During the last congressional session here in Washington State, the Fair Insurance Conduct Act was signed into law. The Act insures fair treatment by the insurance industry. Customers pay premiums and now insurance companies must pay claims as they advertise they do.

The Mountain Loop needs your voice; no motocross racing park for centuries

  • Aug 1, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:29PM

I, the Mountain Loop have provided a natural environment for you to get in touch with nature. You have enjoyed hiking my trails, camping in one of my many campgrounds, fishing or kayaking on one of the many streams, creeks or rivers I provide.

Mountain Loop Dustbowl

  • Aug 1, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:29PM

Going green is sensible. Reducing our carbon footprint is sensible. Evidence mounts daily that it may even be critical to the future of our planet.

Only ADM and corporate corn growers win

  • Aug 1, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:29PM

The World Watch Institute lists 16 crops that can be used to make ethanol and/or bio-diesel. The group, reprinted in a recent Ode magazine, shows switchgrass at 1,150 gallons per acre and hemp at 1,000. Corn comes in at a paltry 345 gallons. Neither switchgrass nor hemp needs large inputs of fertilizer pesticides or water as does corn and neither is a food crop as corn is. This is an important issue because the increasing competition between corn as food for animals, including humans, and corn as feed stock for liquid fuels is causing the costs of such food as dairy products, cheese and butter, etc., and meats, such as pork and chicken, to skyrocket.

Arlington Library

  • Mar 26, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:29PM

What is truly important in our lives? What are the things we really treasure for ourselves, our family and our community? When we chose to live in Arlington, what were the things that we looked for that made Arlington more special than other communities? Think about the time when the serious decision was made for our families to live in or around Arlington.

Thank you

  • Mar 26, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:29PM

I would like to thank the Sunnyside PTSA and the Sunnyside community in Marysville for the support they have shown for the music program at Sunnyside Elementary School. On March 14, there was a garage sale at the school sponsored by the PTSA.

Bayview Trail

  • Mar 26, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:29PM

I was disappointed in the lack of balance in the recent story about the city of Marysvilles Bayview Trail. As anyone who has ever run, biked or pushed a stroller down the Centennial Trail can tell you, trails are family places that encourage healthy recreation. Studies have shown they actually reduce crime by creating public space. Most people consider trails a desirable amenity meaning property values increase, not decrease.

Totem Student Walkout

  • Mar 26, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:29PM

I totally agree with Councilman John Kosters Letter to the Editor. This is a breathtaking moment. Everything he said in his letter, I totally agree with.

Arlington is proud of you

  • Mar 26, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:29PM

A huge Hi-five and round of applause to our Arlington Eagles Hi-Q team and their dazzling victory in this years Hi-Q competition over Kamiak and Stanwood.

Protect the Troops

  • Mar 7, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:29PM

Rep. Jack Murtha is calling for humane treatment of our military. He has had the audacity to propose a plan that says we should never again send our troops into harms way under-equipped, under-trained and under-rested.

Fighting crime and the justice system

  • Mar 7, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:29PM

We need to talk some more. For over eight days I was stuck with jury duty and for a week after that I had the flu and I think jury duty was the worst of the two. Our justice system has a lot of flaws in it. There are a lot of things to fix. The idea in this nation of being judged by your peers is flawed. The way the average citizen thinks today I wouldnt want to be judged by them.

Arlington Downtown Revitalization project a visionary example

  • Aug 1, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:29PM

The Arlington Downtown Revitalization project has been a visionary example of what can be done when local government has enlightened leadership. The planning, the knowledge of what needs to be done daily and the open communications are absolutely incredible. The spirit of cooperation among the city, local businesses and the Strider Construction people shows how good a project of this magnitude can go.

Thank you Marysville Library

  • Aug 1, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:29PM

On Friday, July 20, the staff of the Marysville Branch of Sno-Isle library hosted a Harry Potter party from 10 p.m. to midnight. Snacks, prizes and activities for all ages were provided in a safe and well-organized environment and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Many thanks again to our Marysville Branch of the Sno-Isle Library for another great event.

Veterans Day articles

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

First of all, I want to thank you all for the wonderful articles recently about our veterans. Both the Arlington Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post and Aux 1561 and American Legion Post and Aux. 76 really appreciate the words of encouragement for all they do in the community. This is a lovely expression of the communitys gratitude and respect to our veterans. I also want to express how grateful we are to everyone who came to watch the parade, many of whom came up to the veterans and thanked them for their service, to the parents who explained to their children what being a veteran really means, to all that fly the flag, and to the schools that put on such awesome programs.

School Board incompetent, not students

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

Recently the Everett Herald printed an editorial, followed by an Arlington Times story describing Arlington schools as dropout factories in a study conducted by Johns Hopkins University. The Arlington drop out rate is listed as 40 percent. It should be noted that the Johns Hopkins study used data from three years, not the four years usually considered in similar studies.

Thanks to Fannys

The world has changed

  • Oct 3, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:28PM

In his autobiography Mein Kampf, Adolph Hitler stated, For when a people is not willing or able to fight for its existence Providence in its eternal justice has decreed that peoples end. In the late 1930s, Hitler sensed the weakness and equivocation of the great European nations and knew that, if he moved with deceit and swift resolve, he would have a chance to crush Europe. It was, in the end, a close thing because Europeans had become complacent.

Forty Days for Life

  • Oct 3, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:28PM

Forty Days for Life is a spiritual time calling upon God to hear our prayers and end the tragedy of abortion in our neighborhoods, state, and nation. It is a time of prayer, while respectfully being present outside facilities that perform abortions, primarily Planned Parenthood. It is a time to pray for those individuals who enter the facilities as an employee doctor, nurse, staff or patient the mother, the father and their baby.

Accident

  • Oct 3, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:28PM

Last Saturday evening my wife and I attended a cross country meet held on your beautiful Cedarcrest golf course. Unfortunately the evening ended badly. Immediately following the race at 8:05 p.m. we (my wife, my 15-year--old son and I) were traveling south on 67th Avenue. We were in a long line of cars exiting the parking lot from the golf course. At the intersection of Grove Street and 67th we were struck by another car that ran the red light going westbound on Grove Street. We were a fraction of a second from major injuries or worse. Seconds after the impact I got out of the car and asked the driver of the other car if they were okay and also pointed at the still red light in their direction. The cars immediately behind me continued through the still green light.

Broken healthcare

  • Oct 3, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:28PM

President Bush is threatening to veto health care for millions of uninsured kids.
