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

On behalf of the Marysville Community Food Bank, we want to express our deep appreciation to all those people and organizations in our community who contributed so generously of their time, talent and resources to help feed the hungry in our area during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. We are indeed blessed to live in such a caring community.

Questions & answers

In response to The Times article of March 21, 2007, Hospital bond set for May 15 ballot, I respectfully request that the administrators of Cascade Valley Hospital publish the following information for the consideration of the electorate:

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

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

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.

Thank you, Tribes

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

The members of the Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society would like to thank the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians for the generous grant we received from them in January. Since our Society is non-profit, the Tribes financial assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Arlington

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

It was gratifying to see the plight of the widows in Burundi and how members of Curves in Arlington were able to provide housing for the widow Asenata. But the rest of the story is even more exciting. By the time we were done with our Christmas campaign, most of the club membership had contributed to the purchase of two homes and two individual members had purchased houses all by themselves. This totaled four homes built and two widows supported and all funds went directly to the widows, with nothing withheld for administration costs.

Rescued

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

Trapped on a ledge 65 feet down a cliff face, above a sheer 100-foot drop to the river would be a terrible way to die. Especially in the rain, in the dark.

Proposition 1

  • May 2, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:23PM

My family and I have been residents of Arlington since 1975. When we have used the ER at Cascade Valley Hospital we have had positive experiences.

Amazing growth

  • May 2, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:23PM

I recently visited Arlington, where I lived until I graduated from high school in 1968, for the first time in over 10 years. Having lived in Southern California for almost 40 years, my vision of future retirement has been that of living at least part of the year in the small town atmosphere coupled with above average infrastructure that Arlington provides.

Protect our health care

  • May 2, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:23PM

In 1987, Cascade Valley Hospital completed a major expansion. That year about 5,600 patients were treated in the new Emergency Department. Last year the same facility saw nearly 22,000 patients. In 1987 the population of Arlington was 3,500. Today it is 15,000, and expected to double by the year 2025.

Support your fire districts

  • May 2, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:23PM

As a commissioners wife at District 14, I would like to bring to everyones attention the Fire Districts Proposition 1, which is to be voted on May 15.

Community shows generosity

  • Nov 15, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:23PM

Operation Marysville Community Christmas would like to thank the community for their support during our All-City Food Drive on Nov. 4, 2006.

Weiser photo an insult

  • Nov 15, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:23PM

The picture of former Mayor Dave Weiser on the front page of last weeks edition is clearly an insult to all those who know him. Dave is a kind, decent and respected person who deserves better than this kind of trash. He did a large number of positive things for Marysville when he was mayor.

Reject request for transportation funding

  • Jan 17, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:23PM

In November 2007 Snohomish County residents will be asked to tax themselves to fund over a billion dollars for county road and transit projects. Voters should be careful about approving such a measure, as it appears the proposed projects are an extravagant wish list.

Badmouthing America abroad

  • Jan 17, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:23PM

I recently returned from a tour of India. The tour group was composed mostly of elite academia, totaling 14. They were extreme liberals who never stopped condemning America. For example: President Bush is a war criminal and should be put to death, or President Bush wants to destroy Social Security and starve the old people. They blamed America first, America was always wrong.
