Donation confusion

  • Feb 27, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:20PM

For 26 years Arlington has had a thrift store named Helping Hands. People helping people. The store takes donations from the community then sells them back by the bag full.

Law of Unintended Consequences

  • Feb 27, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:20PM

The Charley Rose show on PBS, Feb. 13, featured Richard Branson. Branson, British entrepreneur and idea-man was discussing the dismal reality of global warming and the critical need to act to halt or slow its effects. As part of his discussion, he threw out a fact which, to me at least, was astonishing.

Moving forward

As I said last year, one of the luxuries of retirement is being able to attend all meetings. I have maintained a perfect attendance as of this writing.

Snohomish County divorce rates 64 percent higher than national average

  • May 23, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:20PM

A recently published article stating the U.S. divorce rate is at the lowest rate since 1970 doesnt accurately portray divorce statistics in Snohomish County. Regardless of what factors one uses to determine the rise or fall of divorce rates, local divorce statistics from the County Clerk and Auditors Office show the incident of divorce to be much higher in Snohomish County than the national average.

Another great spring garage sale

  • May 23, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:20PM

How can we of the Stillaguamish Valley Pioneer Association thank all of you? The yearly (and sometimes biannual) Pioneer Garage Sale grew from a financial necessity to practically a community tradition. Most may not remember those earlier years, when our members (all volunteers) were not only holding the garage sales, but also building a museum at the same time. This continues to be our on going task. Everything takes time and effort. So, like all good things, the sales must come to an end. At our last meeting we voted to retire the garage sale. It in no way reflects the lack of community support in donations or sales. It is more a reflection of our ability to provide the required time and effort to run a successful museum. We will not be accepting items of any kind for sale. We do invite you to come visit our museum and if you are so moved, to join our organization

May is National Foster Care Month and I wanted to take the opportunity to thank foster parents for all the work they do caring for foster children. By opening their home and heart, the play a vital roll in the childs healing,

Frog in the water

  • May 23, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:20PM

I recall that if you put a frog in a pan of water on the stove, it wont jump out even though it is being cooked and eventually dies.

Food drive

  • May 23, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:20PM

On behalf of the Marysville Community Food Bank, I want to express out deep appreciation to all the Postal Workers who participated in the Letter Carriers Food Drive on May 12, 2007. We also extend a special thanks to Rocky, the Post Office coordinator for the drive. The extra time and effort resulted in a collection of 35, 196 pounds of food, all of which will remain in Marysville and will be distributed to the hungry in our service area.

Justice reform

  • Jun 20, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:20PM

The large number of people in prison and the huge costs to society, both financially and socially, should be enough to not only justify but mandate serious criminal justice reform.

Thank you

Arlington Dollars for Scholars Foundation would like to thank the Arlington Runners Club and their sponsors for donating the proceeds from their fun run in Glen Eagle Saturday, June 9, to ADFSF. Other supporters of ADFSF for this run were Action Sports, Arlington Pharmacy, Carl Tosten, Denton Massage and Wellness Clinic, Electric Beach, Favorite Pastimes, Flowers by George, Frontier Bank and the Village Restaurant. Each donated items to be used for prizes for the runners. I am pleased and proud of being part of Arlington and the way it supports ADFSF and in this case the youth and their future. Thank you from the Officers and Board of ADFSF and next years recipient of this scholarship.

If the Democrats continue with their continuous stalling, they get to create another Vietnam

  • Aug 29, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:20PM

I am a Vietnam Veteran. Treated like dirt, shunned by most democrats and abused by the Social Welfare System. They are afraid of getting their hands dirty.

Thank you for the Dedication of the Lamp Post

  • Aug 29, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:19PM

On behalf of our entire family, we wish to thank the Silvana Fair Board for its touching dedication of the 2007 fair to Martin Danner. We were especially moved by the Dedication of the Lamp Post at noon. For many years, dad could not wait to get up at 5 a.m. on the fourth Saturday of July and drag out all of the electrical cords, speakers and do whatever else electrical people needed. He seemed to just get done by 930 a.m., to then run the Kids Games. From the Danner family, thank you.

Caring staff

We have lived in Arlington our entire lives and all eight of our children were born at Cascade Valley Hospital. With eight active children, we have also visited the ER many times and have always been thankful for the prompt service and caring staff.

Bad food

  • Apr 11, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:19PM

My heart goes out to the pet owners around the country whose pets have been made sick and sometimes killed by contaminated wheat gluten from China. To see any living creature, especially a much-loved one, suffering is a painful experience for anyone.

Proposition 1

  • Apr 11, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:19PM

The Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce has as its mission to cultivate a business community that works together to enhance economic vitality in the Greater Arlington area. In May, the citizens of our community will be asked to pass Proposition 1, a $45 million bond issue to improve and modernize the emergency room facilities at Cascade Valley Hospital.

Thank you

We wish to thank all the supporters, participants and volunteers who helped to make the 12th Annual A Farmers Market Springtime Garden Faire for 2007 a rousing success. Thank you to those who came and supported us with your presence and your dollars too. It was held Saturday March 31, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Stanwood/Camano Fairgrounds. Next year it will be the first Saturday in April, our usual day. An extra special thanks to Bruce Boettcher owner, and Nate, of B-Square Electric Co, No Job is too Small: 652-4858, for their expertise and long hours. Also cheers to Kathy and Gary Beard of Camano Islands Company Perks Coffee: 387-2372 and Stanwood QFC for their promotional endeavors. We especially appreciate Malynda Shipley, Stanwood/Camano Fair Manager for all her hours of assistance. Bravo goes out to Garden Faire staff members: Marlaine Olson, Susan Large, Dana Carney and Donna-Lee McGinnis. Big hugs go to Volunteer Debi Granny Goodwitch Soap Kirby. Special Thank yous go to Martha White and friends Tori, Dea and the 2 strong young men Tucker and Tony, our Clean Team. We also wish to thank the many stores and offices that posted our flyers and hosted our brochure holders. Advanced Storage of Stanwood, Stanwood Shell Deli and Gas at I-5, Vantero Gas Station at 72nd and Hwy 530 and Burger King are especially appreciated for hosting our big 4x4 signs. Garden Faire, the longest continuous garden/craft show in North Snohomish County, broke customer attendance records this year. We had over 70 booths, including free gardening workshops and educational booths. Select home service exhibits were added this year as we endeavor to become our own local Home & Garden Shop. All wares sold are made, grown or baked in Washington state by the vendor, friend or family member with no Big Box big Corporations or imports. We feature specialty nurseries, country crafts, fine art and yummy eats. We learned a lot this first year in the brand new Bonnie Cole Youth Hall (or big red barn). And with the experience gained (it was first year for half the staff), we know that 2008 Garden Faire will be much warmer, bigger and better again. Thanks to our North Snohomish communities, to those many folks who go unnamed but not forgotten, as without you we could not put on this wonderful free family event!

Immigration

  • Jun 6, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:19PM

With the Immigration Bill looming in the Senate we are on the path to a one-party system. What would be the ramifications, if true? With the election of Thomas Jefferson, America became a two-party system with a smooth transition from one political partys leadership to the other. Through wise compromise, our U.S. Senate has managed to keep the two-party system.

Thank you for the Hospital

  • Jun 6, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:19PM

Where do we begin in thanking all the people involved in passage of the bond for renovation and new construction at Cascade Valley Hospital? The voters should be given accolades for recognizing the need for expansion of the emergency department and other areas of the hospital. You provided the votes needed to make it happen.
