Raised Beds are perfect for a Veggie Garden

  • Apr 30, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:28PM

Last year I spent my summer vacation landscaping our backyard. Not exactly an exotic destination but it was something the Missus and I had wanted to do for several years. Up to that point a failing drain field had forced us to delay the project. In our planning phase we both considered what we wanted in the garden area we were creating. Perennials for cutting, some small shrubs for spring blooms, fall color and winter interest, espaliered fruit trees, some berries, and of course lots of pots overflowing with seasonal color. And most important for me, some raised boxes for planting vegetables.

In the performing arts center business, it's known as the "Build it and they will come" syndrome. After so much time, money and energy is spent on the monumental task of building a civic theater, it's commonly found that relatively little resources and planning are devoted to the even more difficult job of successfully operating the center after its doors open.

Since being purchased by Sounding Publishing Inc. nearly a year ago and getting a new publisher three months ago, The Marysville Globe and The Arlington Times have undergone a number of changes. Most of those changes, however, were internal and not readily apparent to those we serve our readers and our advertisers.

The Globe and The Times working to keep our communities informed of local news and litter free

  • Apr 30, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:42PM

When I first arrived on the scene three months ago, our circulation distribution had recently changed from paid mail subscription to a free carrier delivered product. This change increased our circulation ten-fold as well as introducing a new carrier delivery system. And with our new carrier delivery system we experienced many bumps and hurdles; readers receiving multiple papers, while others stopped receiving any papers.

Our Library Arlington

  • Apr 30, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:37PM

When I was teaching, I was really surprised to find that several parents of my students were driving their kids to the Marysville Library to do research for their homework. The idea puzzled me, so the next time I drove by the Marysville Library I stopped in to see if I could figure out why. I could hardly believe my eyes. It was wonderful. I didn't know libraries like that existed. It was hard to believe that library was in the same library system as our Arlington Library.
