Support our schools

  • Jan 30, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:28PM

I would like to single out a group of individuals that work relentlessly to increase the quality of life for our young people. The results of their efforts help promote the American Dream in our children and contribute to a variety of other qualities we find desirable in our community.

Delivery Disaster

  • Jan 30, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:28PM

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

Support Lakewood levy

  • Jan 30, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:28PM

As most people are aware, Feb. 19 is the date for the presidential primary. However, it is also the date that the Lakewood School District is asking the voters to approve two measures: The Replacement School Program and Operations Levy and the Technology Levy.

A quagmire of hog fuel

  • Dec 19, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:28PM

Many years ago, someone had an idea that we could use the abandoned railroad beds for bike and horse trails. This idea gained some momentum for a while and we did get a lot of beautiful trails put in to accommodate horses and bikes.

Traffic Grinch is the city

  • Dec 19, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:28PM

In an article in your Dec. 5 paper, the city of Marysville sounded delighted that the tax revenue from sales tax is growing. Imagine how fast it would grow if people could get in and out of the stores at Lakewood Commons.

Good intentions

  • Dec 19, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:28PM

Our state government has an opportunity for redemption by moving HB1321 to the floor and passing it. HB1321 is a parental notification bill making it the law that parents are informed before Planned Parenthood can perform an abortion on their teenage daughter. HB1321 is notification only, not permission. If the teenage girl doses not want her parents notified, then a judge will decide if the parents are not fit to know and if a line needs to be drawn through their constitution rights. HB1321 will help ensure that the people who care most about this girl and the unborn have a chance to ensure her best interest and mental health are protected.

Online vs. library

  • Oct 25, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:28PM

Boy, where have I been? According to Brian Laine (Oct. 18, letters to the editor) I no longer need the Arlington Public Library because I can get it all from my little old home computer. Wow. Lets see he must mean that I can get those 30 to 40 books I check out each month online for free? And I can get all those wonderful magazines I borrow for free online? And my husband can get all those blues, jazz, and Bob Dylan CDs online for free? And all those woodworking books he checks out? For free online? How about all that local family history research I do for others? Its online for free, too? And those DVDs I borrow for free? What a dummy Ive been.

Traffic dangers

  • Oct 25, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:28PM

I would like to congratulate The Globe/Times staff members who won WNPA awards but would like to challenge one of them to cover an accident waiting to happen.

I-933 is devastating

  • Oct 25, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:28PM

The last six Washington governors, including the current one, Christine Gregoire, and both Republicans and Democrats of the past have all come together to oppose Initiative 933. Theres a very good reason for this: it is a devastating proposal.

Larger libraries allow for more resources

  • Oct 25, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:27PM

I would like to thank Managing Librarian Leslie Moore for all of the help she gave me the last two-and-a-half years while I was researching the history of the women ancestors of my granddaughters two families in order to make her the quilt that hung on the library wall this summer. She very patiently helped me acquire skills I never thought Id have for doing online research, even on two different occasions giving the same lesson on how to really research on the Internet.

Support Marysville Fire District

  • Oct 25, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:27PM

As a lifetime resident of Marysville, Im writing to urge citizens to vote yes on Proposition 1. The Marysville Fire District needs our help so that they can continue to provide the excellent service they have always given our community.

Time to act

  • Mar 14, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:27PM

Much has been written in the past couple of months regarding improving the U.S. 2 trestle. It is very unfortunately that nothing was done to secure funding back in 2004, when it would have cost $345 million to replace the entire structure. Now, here we are a mere three years later and what will we be paying for? What the DOT calls access ramps (since they claim that capacity is not the problem) for $486 million, which, by the way, construction is not slated to begin until 2016. In addition to the DOT, many public officials have said that we should wait until funding becomes available to fix the structure. Wait for what? Wait for tens of thousands of more residents to move to south Marysville, Granite Falls, Lake Stevens, Snohomish, Monroe and all points in between? Wait until the cost rises into the billions? Wait until its takes over an hour to travel the two-mile stretch at 5 a.m.? We cannot wait to fix this nightmare. Whether by creating a special taxing district, introducing tolls, requesting assistance from the federal government or some other form, the time to act is now.

Graffiti

  • Mar 14, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:27PM

I want to applaud Mr. Hoffmans proposed solution to the graffiti problem that we are currently experiencing in Marysville. He is very generous to offer public and private property as a canvas for our young budding artists. I think he should take the lead in this bold and groundbreaking outreach program and offer up his residence to these artists as a token of his sincerity and commitment to the mastery of their skills. I am sure he will be proud to see every square inch of his property tagged with vulgar language and images that would not be appropriate to comment on. There are many people in this community, such as myself, who are very proud of their parks and businesses, who do not consider it a plausible solution to let vandals paint the whole town.

Thank you

  • Mar 14, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:27PM

Every once in a while you get news that really knocks the wind right out of you. That was the case a couple of weeks ago when I received word that my brother, Howard Olsen had passed away. It was a Sunday and I had just enough time to meet with my nieces and their families before returning to Olympia for the legislative session. Believe me, the trip was not an easy one.

Thank You Arlington

American Legion Post 76 Toys For Kids had a wonderful year. We raised $14,500 which was spent on toys for the less fortunate children who are registered with the Arlington Food Bank. This year, 351 kids got at least two gifts and sock stuffers. To raise this money we put out donation cans, sell cut outs of various denominations, have a live and silent auction and from monetary donations from individuals and businesses.

Greene is most experienced, qualified, able sheriff candidate

  • Aug 8, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:27PM

Theres a reason why Chief Tom Greene has the best resume out of the candidates for Snohomish County Sheriff, and its not merely because hes been behind a desk his entire career.

For the past 12 years Arlington High School DECA has been adopting families to help provide a Christmas for them. This year has been yet another successful year. You might have seen a DECA member standing outside your local grocery stores collecting canned goods and money.

Lip service

  • Feb 6, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:27PM

Its really interesting to see what government says and what it really does. Believe it or not, the two arent always the same. Lets forget, for the moment, things at the federal level. Instead lets concentrate on the local scene.

Work or school?

  • Feb 6, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:27PM

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.

It was with great interest that I read your 25 years ago 1983 entry in the Jan. 16 edition of The Globe. I would like to share the rest of the story.

Thanks from Food Bank

On behalf of the Marysville Community Food Bank, I want to thank all those caring and generous people in the Marysville area who contributed so generously to meet out needs for food boxes during the holiday season.

Traffic fixes

  • Mar 21, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:27PM

Nearly a year ago, I presented Beach Street Safety Petition on behalf of 51 residents from Beach Avenue and Grove Street. On April 2, 2006, a moving car hit a young boy in the 1200 block of Beach Avenue. A helicopter airlifted him to Harborview Trauma Center. The petition requested several safety enhancements to Beach Avenue, such as signs, caution lights and possibly speed bumps.
