Arlington Levy

We support Proposition 1

  • Apr 18, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:25PM

When my husband and I moved to Arlington 11 years ago, we were drawn by the small town atmosphere and strong community feel.

The North County Branch Board of Housing Hope would like to thank those who attended the agencys Community of Hope Dinner on March 15 at the Hawthorn Inn & Suites in Smokey Point.

Girl Scouts

  • Apr 18, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:25PM

Girl Scouts Totem Council in Snohomish County would like to publicly thank the 1,000 plus Girl Scout volunteers who give their time and talents to support girls in the 10 service areas in Snohomish County. Without volunteers, the 3,350 girl scouts in Snohomish County would not be getting the outstanding programs that the volunteers provide through the many activities they do with our girls. These activities include such things as outdoor cooking, exploring math and science, entrepreneur opportunities and of course community service and crafts.

An excellent hospital

As the Commissioners of Snohomish County Hospital District No. 3, we have been elected by the residents of the hospital district to guide the actions of Cascade Valley Hospital.

WASL

  • Apr 18, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:24PM

One of the primary purposes of our public schools is to help every child become an engaged citizen who is willing and able to actively participate in our democracy. A high school diploma is our seal of approval that a young person has demonstrated their readiness for this responsibility. There are many ways to measure this readiness. It undermines the core values of democracy to use a single test to deny this right-of-passage to students because of their minority or socioeconomic status. This is effectively what a high-stakes WASL does.

Please approve

  • Apr 18, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:24PM

We have been operating a business in Arlington since 1986. This community has been a large part of our success and in turn we want to support our community in passing Proposition 1 on the May 15 ballot to upgrade and improve Cascade Valley Hospital.

Flood plain regulations

In response to the Heralds article on Dec. 11 and John Kosters Letter to the Editor, Put Emotions Aside, on Dec. 20, I would like to add this.

Need help for car theft victims

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

State Representative John Lovick (44th District) is proposing legislation (HB 1001) to help reduce auto theft in this state. It is well thought out and deserves serious consideration during the upcoming legislative session.

Farm animals treated as things

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

In my weekly reading of the Arlington Times I came across an editorial about a chicken who got picked up by a woman studying language in Russia. The woman was hungry, and the chicken was friendly, so she picked it up and took it home to her apartment. Once home, she and her roommate proceeded to try to kill the chicken, starting with drowning, then twisting its neck, then slowly sawing its head off. While this story was obviously meant to be an endearing Christmas story, I found it to be quite telling of our lack of consciousness and downright cruelty to our fellow beings.

OMCC grateful for support

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

Operation Marysville Community Christmas would like to thank the community for their support during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season. Through the generosity of the community, OMCC was able to collect over 9,000 lbs. of food for the Marysville Community Food Bank, as well as distribute toys to 1,135 needy children in the community including more then 100 bicycles.

Three-Strikes Law Death Penalty

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

Due to my Letters to the Editor, about reforming the Three-Strikes Law, I have been asked by many, including law enforcement, if I believe in the death penalty. Yes, I do.

The time is now

Saturday, March 24, World TB Day, presents the critical problem that still not enough is being done to stop TB. This grave global public health threat requires an immediate and urgent global response.

Step up to the plate

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

I am writing to encourage voters to support the coming drive to improve our hospital. Jense and Florence Thompson built the low level portion in the sixties. It has served exceptionally well for many years.

Maximum Sentence

  • Oct 10, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:24PM

Having been the victim of property crime myself, I feel empathy for Tim Denhoff, the homeowner who was the recent victim of graffiti as published in your paper [The Times] on Oct. 3. What I dont agree with is Mr. Denhoffs apparent disdain for the hard-working men and women of the Arlington Police Department.

Sheriff Candidate

  • Oct 10, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:24PM

The choice for Snohomish County Sheriff is obvious. For the past 35 years the Snohomish County Sheriff candidate has been fighting crime while working his way up to the rank of Bureau Chief. The State Trooper/politician candidate, while patrolling state highways the last 10 years, has also been a member of the Washington State Legislature which is responsible for the unacceptable performance of such state agencies as Department of Social and Health Services, Child Protective Services and the Department of Corrections. These agencies have failed our citizens to the point that criminals under state supervision have killed three police officers in Washington state in the past two years and allowed children of our state to be sexually assaulted, abused and killed while under the care of the state agencies which the trooper/politicians political party has had oversight for several decades.

It is unfair

  • Oct 10, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:23PM

If you cant do the time, dont do the crime is an absolutely inane cliche that seems to be recited by so many self-righteous in their letters. Im sure no offender is standing and scratching his head contemplating whether he can do the time for that particular crime or not. Most crime is committed in the heat of the moment and/or while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Im sure that no one is intending on being caught either so the time has little relevance at that moment.

Barbara Tolbert

  • Oct 10, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:23PM

Im writing on behalf of the Arlington Professional Firefighters Local 3728. We are publicly endorsing Barbara Tolbert for the Arlington City Council. Barbara contacted us a few months ago asking if she could attend our union meeting. We were honored that a candidate for City Council would ask to attend our meeting.
