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.

Thank you for participating in Kiddies Parade

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

I would like to thank the two men who rescued my husband and son after my husband went overboard on his boat near the Shipwreck in the Sound on Aug. 24, at approximately 7 a.m.

Lovick for sheriff

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.

Breaking Point

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

The Sunday documentary Breaking Point on the Discovery channel was excellently narrated by Ted Koppel. Those who viewed it had to be as affected as I was by the extreme folly of the waste involved. The mass incarceration in America is such a waste of human life and of the taxpayers money. We incarcerate more people then any other country in the world.

Use resources wisely

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

Imagine for a minute you are the CEO of a large corporation. You have an asset that is underutilized at only about 45 percent of its capacity. Increasing its use by a mere 5 percent would generate well over $100 million in annual revenue and $20 million in local tax revenue with very little investment. And it would provide incredible benefits to your stockholders beyond the revenue it generated.

Still alive and well

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

In response to the firefighters articles, I would like people to know that I am still alive and well excuse the pun.

Proposed village a consolation

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

I appreciated the Times article on the upcoming transformation of the Graafstra properties (Graafstra Farm to be developed into Haller Point, Oct. 17). Mr. Graafstra deserves a good retirement after decades of very hard work, but it is sad to see the farm go.

Is it the legislature?

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

Mr. Jim Tagert seems ready to lay every shortcoming of our law enforcement system at the feet of the Washington State Legislature.

Simple Majority

  • Oct 24, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:16PM

As a parent, a person who writes laws for a living, and as a taxpayer, I urge area voters to approve EHJR (Engrossed House Joint Resolution) 4204 Simple Majorities for Schools.

Berry juice cocktail

  • Jun 13, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:16PM

There are people in our community who serve us and they cannot be thanked enough. I am speaking of the owners or our Arlington Health Foods, Inc. They are on 317 N. Olympic Avenue. Roger and Claire know whats what for our good health and when you read of some new exotic discovery from Jonathan Wright you rush down to order it and they already have it. They have aided in my good health and the good health of so many more. Here is a toast to their continued business a berry juice cocktail all organic of course.

Vote No in November

  • Jun 13, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:16PM

In November, Snohomish County voters will be asked to fund Edmonds Crossing, a proposed new ferry terminal, that is on the Regional Transportation Investment Districts (RTID list of road projects. The cost will be $157million: $127 million from RTID and $30 million from Sound Transit.

Student Walkout

  • Mar 12, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:16PM

The student walkout at Totem Middle School is breathtaking. It challenges the imagination to picture 200 students demonstrating in support of increased discipline in a public school.

Punitive Laws

  • Mar 12, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:16PM

The PEW Charitable Trust reported this week that one in every 100 Americans is incarcerated. That is upsetting. It makes me wonder how many people we can afford to incarcerate under our present punitive laws.

Tanker contract

  • Mar 12, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:16PM

I think this is a sad day in our history to have our national security given to a foreign country. Our respect for our heads of government is at an all-time low when they sell us out rather than support Americans in our great United States of America.

Boeing

  • Mar 12, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:16PM

The loss of this Boeing 767 tanker deal, the tax hikes on our gas and our homes and the big talk of more tax hikes coming our way should be enough to finally put Gregoire, Murray, Cantwell and Norm Dicks out of work and out to pasture.

Thank you

  • Mar 12, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:16PM

Thank you, Lakewood voters, for your support of the Replacement School Program and Operations Levy and the Technology Levy on the Feb. 19 ballot. The passage of these measures will enable us to continue providing a quality education for the students we serve. It will also enable us to bring modern technology into our classrooms.

My puppy

Although this may not be considered news worthy, the events that occurred on Second Street in Marysville today will stay with me for the rest of my life.

Vandalism in Marysville

  • Jan 31, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:16PM

We need to talk. What are we going to do about the terrorists/vandals/thugs that are taking over the little town of Marysville? What bothers me the most is to see the businesses on Third Street that try so hard to make it a special place in this town.
