Praise and raze

Praise to Aspen and Kane Brisbin giving money from their lemonade stand to a family in need.

Praise to all who voted in Tuesday's election. Yes, it was just a primary. But we tend to take that right for granted.

Praise to Arlington for letting at-risk youths work on a new mural in town.

Praise to all who attended Night Out Against Crime events. The public really can make a difference in helping police limit criminal activity.

Raze motorcyclists who drive to fast and race on public streets. Not only can they get killed themselves, but they put others at risk.

Praise to all of those donating to All Breed Equine Rez-Q. Our horse friends need help, too.

Praise to those who put on the Concert in the Garden for the Usher Family. Few things could be scarier than getting a disease that can cause people to become deaf and blind.

Praise to the Skate Inn in Marysville for offering programs like Roller Derby, Dance Skating and Speed Skating. Not everyone is a football player.

Praise to the Bike Shop in Arlington for making a bicycle for the dad of one of the children killed in the Oso slide. Locals are still trying in many different ways to help various victims recover.

Speaking of Oso, praise to the trio of guys who are in rocking chairs raising money for a memorial to both victims and those who helped.

Praise to Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring for going out into the public and listening to people's comments about the community at an ice cream gathering at Jennings Park. That is local government at its best.
