  • Nov 1, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:26PM

In an emergency, every second counts. The Marysville Fire District needs additional resources to build and staff an additional fire station and transition from a part-paid department to a fully staffed department with fulltime firefighters.

Support our fire district

Last year my husband passed away after a long battle with congestive heart failure and kidney disease. In the last two years of his life he was on dialysis due to his declining health.

Be patient Even when lives are at stake?

  • Aug 8, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:26PM

I think it is admirable that WSDOT is concerned that someone might fall while painting graffiti on the old railroad bridge crossing I-5, south of 116th, but these people chose to put their lives in jeopardy. The residents and workers of Lakewood Commons at Smokey Point havent been afforded the luxury of choice. We are still at the mercy of sometimes blocking traffic when an aid car, fire truck or police are needed. As the holidays approach it will get worse.

Thank you I have never been so proud of a dance company

  • Aug 8, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:26PM

Two and a half years ago, Teresa Bates, owner of Marysville Performing Arts Centre, took a chance mid-season and asked me to join her teaching staff. I have a 45-year career as a teacher, choreographer and director. When I moved to the area five years ago, an initial unprofessional experience almost caused me to retire. Thanks to the guidance and encouragement from Mrs. Bates, along with supportive parents, I am teaching again and loving my work.

Property owners victimized

  • Nov 1, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:26PM

The individual property owner is one of the most victimized minorities in this country. Property taxes are taken by force from individual property owners to fund governments controlled by elected legislators and non-elected bureaucrats (officials). At the property owners expense, these officials impose and enforce laws, regulations, restrictions, conditions, covenants, ordinances, statutes, policies, prohibitions, protocols, standards and guidelines granting every non-owner, especially themselves, the unjust right to dictate to the actual property owner how that property owner may ultimately use his own property. This begs an obvious question: If non-owners have the right to decide how a property may be used, then why dont the actual owners have the same right?

Fundraiser a success

  • Nov 1, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:26PM

Editors Note: Letters to the Editor are prioritized and generally selected to run in The Times or The Globe based on the letter writers address where space is limited. The following letter was therefore omitted from the pages of The Globe and ran only in The Times. Mr. Blowers, who is the Republican 10th District Leader, asked that we include it in The Globe, even though it runs after the election.

Poker & Paws Walk raises $16,000

  • Nov 8, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:25PM

We had a dog-gone great time. This year, Cascade Valley Hospital Foundations 5K Poker & Paws Walk event was, again, a huge success. After all was said and done and the last of dog hair was swept away, we tallied up our dollars and raised more than $16,000, our best year yet. None of this could have been accomplished were it not for the generosity of our sponsors.

War totals equal population of Mukilteo

  • Nov 8, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:25PM

For every one of the two trillion dollars spent during the three-plus years of the Iraqi war, a hundred questions have been asked and a thousand answers given.

Thank you Lets Dish!

  • Jan 9, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:25PM

Im writing to publicly thank Jim & Vicki Mattson, owners of Lets Dish! for their generous help this Christmas. My sister lives in Marysville with her husband and young daughter while the rest of our family all live in Kansas. The week before Christmas she injured her back and was in tremendous pain. It was frustrating to not be able to help her out in any way since we all live so far from her. Christmas was rapidly approaching and we wanted to do something to help them out. We decided to order some meals for them and see if we could locate someone to deliver them to their home. I came across Lets Dish! on the Internet and contacted them. Vicki was so kind and helpful and even offered more menu options. What prompted me to write this letter though, was her generous offer to deliver the meals to my sister even though that is not a service that they offer. Our family here in Kansas was so grateful for this extra act of Christmas generosity. Thank you Vicki and Jim Mattson.

OMCC Thank You

As a long-time resident of Marysville and Public Information Officer for the Marysville Fire District, I am writing this letter of appreciation of generosity to our community. It was heart warming to experience the donation of toys, food, and money for our families in need and/or experiencing difficult times this holiday season. Even those with little, gave what they could to better the fortune of a neighbor.

  • May 30, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:25PM

A great reflection

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

As the current cross country season for Arlington High School comes to a close, we would like to express our appreciation and respect for the coaches of the team. As parents, we have been involved with the cross-country team for the past six years. Both of our daughters have run for the team. The coaches instill a sense of camaraderie, dedication, fun and self-discipline that gives the students the drive to run farther than they ever thought they could and the motivation to continue pushing themselves. Weve seen these attributes spill into other areas of our daughters lives, such as academics, tennis, track and helping others.
