City Council

  • Jul 4, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:22PM

In the nine years I have lived in Arlington, I have written a Letter to the Editor on several occasions. These letters have often been to bring attention to some community activity or to thank people for their support of those activities. Occasionally, I wrote about something in the community that was bothering me. Todays letter is different from previous letters, but it is not totally un-related. I have filed to run for the Arlington City Council. There were many factors that went into this long thought-out decision, but rest easy, I am not going to bore you with all of them. I do, however, think it is important for voters to have a sense of why a person wants to serve in public office and what that person brings to the office.

Hospital cutting staff?

  • Jul 4, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:22PM

The go to guy at the Sheriffs Department

  • Aug 22, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:22PM

The campaign for a new County Sheriff is on and it is important to take a close look at the men running and to consider your vote carefully. The new sheriff will be with us for many years and will play a critical role in all of ours lives. Keeping Snohomish County citizens and families safe as we welcome so many new people into the area in the coming years will be a real challenge and we want to elect the best of the best.

Thank you for your service

  • Dec 5, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:22PM

Many times we take for granted those protecting us and Id like to take the opportunity to thank several people in the Snohomish County Sheriffs office for their service and the generosity they have and continue to show all of us. First, Id like to thank Sheriff Rick Bart for all the years of dedicated service hes provided the citizens of our County.

Humbled

  • May 2, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:22PM

I am humbled; I am in awe, kneeling but five feet from the monstrance, the vessel used to publicly show, worship and honor the Eucharistic Jesus Christ. Radiating rays of purified gold surround the body of Jesus within the monstrance. It is like the Transfiguration of Christ arrayed in dazzling brightness

German sheperd

  • Apr 4, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:21PM

I am writing you today to point out how the view of the German Shepherd dog has changed over the years; how this typical American hero has been reduced to somewhat of a villain and how this has affected the characteristic American Dream. During World War Two, the German Shepherd was used to complete many tasks and quickly took center stage in many households.

I have been following your Community Report Card editorials with much interest over the past two weeks and I accept your challenge to weigh-in on this issue, particularly the Creativity Index section. Specifically you asked, Is the library checking out more books or fewer? This key question goes right to the heart of the Marysville Community and its interest in education and life-long learning. And Im happy to report that the answer is an enthusiastic yes. Marysville is reading more.

I have lived in Arlington most of my life and I cant imagine our town without Cascade Valley Hospital and the services it has provided for so many years. However, it is time for these services to be up-graded and we now have the opportunity to make that possible on May 15 by voting Yes on Proposition 1.

Life-Long Obligation

  • May 9, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:21PM

My wife and I have been privileged to live and work in this great community that we were both born and raised in. A large part of the draw that keeps us here in Arlington is the quality of life that we all share. Our community provides us with great schools, hospital and medical services, city government, police and fire, parks, etc., that allows us a sense of ownership. Cascade Valley Hospital is a key and important part of the mix that we all call our neighborhood. Aside from providing excellent medical services, the hospital district brings over four hundred jobs to our area.
