Raised Beds are perfect for a Veggie Garden

  • Apr 30, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:32PM

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.

The key to the PAC's future Steve Stav

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.

Have your say in making our community newspapers better

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 5:48PM

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. We also addressed a major concern from some of our readers about the appearance of littering throughout our communities.

This week in history from The Arlington Times archives

  • Apr 30, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:03PM

• In the 13 years Wayne Robertson has run the Lakewood schools, the district has undergone tremendous growth. Now it's his turn. The Lakewood superintendent announced this week that he will be the newest assistant superintendent in the Edmonds School District. "This will take me in a different direction and offer me some experience with a large organization," Robertson said, understating the change. He goes from a district with 2,300 students to one with more than 21,000. As assistant superintendent, Robertson will run a part of the Edmonds School District that is nearly three times the size of Lakewood. Robertson feels a more important distinction in his new job is a chance to work with educators who are recognized around the state and even the country for their innovation in education. "They are recognized leaders in educational reform," he said. Edmonds schools have used performance-based education standards for 10 years. Robertson said it's a direction many area school districts are taking now. Lakewood is one of those. And Robertson is himself a leader in school reform. He brought a new style of decision-making to the district. "He is known for his work in site-based decision making," noted Lakewood High School Principal Kris McDuffy. His resignation comes on the heels of a successful, if drawn out, campaign to pass a maintenance and operations levy. The levy request was endorsed by 66 percent of Lakewood voters after failing with only 50 percent in February. More importantly, he leaves behind schools now known for their focus on learning. "We have basically enhanced programs that were lost by the early levy failures or that never existed," he said. "I never really expected the real depth, caring and commitment that I found in Lakewood," said McDuffy, who was hired by Robertson nine years ago.

Our Library Arlington

  • Apr 30, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:41PM

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.

Blessings to the Arlington School District's administration, staff, supportive services, students and parents (past and present).
