Perennials bring annual excitement

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:32PM

My life is filled with plants. In my nursery I have thousands of them. In my garden probably hundreds. They range from trees to shrubs to ground covering perennials, bulbs and annuals. I love them all, some more than others, but they all bring me great joy at various times of the year. It is this late winter, early spring season that I get the greatest joy from my perennials. Here is why.

How far is it to Seattle?

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:48PM

How far is it to Seattle? That depends. Among other things, it depends on the time of day, the season, weather and the particular day of the week. Add the price of gas. According to the on-the-ground measure, Seattle is 38 miles away. My car's odometer agrees with maps that 38 miles is close to accurate. Though the road still measures 38 miles, I can feel the distance growing every year.

Last car for gas

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:48PM

So Sen. Maria Cantwell and Rep. Jay Inslee have asked President Bush to create a task force to investigate possible fraud and price gouging by oil and gas companies. Gasoline averaging $3.50 a gallon is dragging the economy into recession, they said in their letter to the president and it's time to get to the bottom of it. Remember back in the '70s when the Legislature created its own Select Committee on the Energy Crisis which traveled all over the state conducting hearings in communities where lines for gasoline were getting longer and longer?

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:47PM

Ballots for the May 20 special election should have already begun appearing in area mail boxes, as local residents will have the opportunity to decide if Arlington needs a new library. There will actually be two measures on the ballot an $8.8 million construction bond and a measure to form a Library Capital Facility Area. Both measures must receive a supermajority of 60 percent or more yes votes for the new library to be built.

This week in history from The Marysville Globe archives 10 years ago 1998

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:01PM

n Marysville Schools stand to benefit from more money in their budget after the Marysville Planning Commission agreed to increase the amount developers pay for school mitigation by as much as 400 percent. The issue is money to pay for the price of educating students who move into new homes. Currently, builders pay the school district $925 for each single-family home built. Under estimates of the new formula that figure could be almost $4,000. School District officials have often said that education suffers with the explosive growth in the Marysville area. As families move into new homes, school facilities are not able to keep up with the growth. The district uses the impact money almost exclusively to buy portable classrooms, according to Finance Director Larry Clement a portion paid for the new buildings at the high school. Few people argue that the current amount is enough, so at last week's planning commission meeting City Planner Gloria Hirashima proposed a new fee ordinance modeled on one passed by the Snohomish County Council last November. School mitigation fees charged in the city of Marysville are among the lowest in the county, according to Marysville Planning Commissioner George Wilcox. The proposed ordinance includes a complicated formula designed to approximate the cost of teaching a new student. That formula wasn't reviewed, although Wilcox said the district used conservative numbers. "If anything they were probably underestimating their costs." What was reviewed was a provision in the county law that cuts results from that formula in half and then sets a maximum fee at $2,000, both the maximum and cutting in half are a compromise from a committee of builders and superintendents, according to Hirashima. Marysville School Superintendent Richard Eisenhauer told the planning commission at last week's meeting that the compromise cutting the fee in half and capping it at $2,000 was purely political and had nothing to do with the price of educating new students. The commission agreed. They voted unanimously to approve an ordinance that removed the cap and took out the provision halving the fee. Commissioner Bill Roberts, a developer, was not at the meeting and doesn't agree with the action, he said later. The commissioners also removed a provision that would have exempted developers from paying the fee for low income homes. The proposed ordinance faces several tests before it is on the city's books. The planning commission will hold a public hearing later this spring, then the proposal needs a majority vote by the Marysville City Council.

Make your vote count

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:41PM

In 2006, the Arlington Library Bond went to a recount. Ultimately, the bond failed by just 28 votes. Sam Reed, our Secretary of State for Washington at the time, was there that day. He handed us a Voter Intent packet which shows the statewide standards on what is a vote. You can find this packet at www.secstate.wa.gov/elections. While observing that recount, I learned a few things about voting that I would like to share because they impacted the vote in 2006:

Marysville police

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:41PM

After being appointed by Mayor Dave Weiser as one of three Civil Service Commissioners, I have had the honor and privilege to serve one of the most professional police departments in Washington state, the men and women of the Marysville Police Department. During my nine-year tenure as a civil service commissioner, I have been rewarded with friendships that will remain fondly in my memory for years to come. One could not ask for more. I believe that we have accomplished much during those years and it is my reward to think that I have made a positive difference to all I've had the privilege to serve.

Vote before May 20

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 27, 2008 at 8:17PM

I wonder what motivates the 25 or more people who are working so tirelessly on the Committee for a New Arlington Library. They obviously realize how important a new and expanded library is for the Arlington community. I am thankful for their dedication to this very worthwhile cause. Our time at committee meetings, work parties, telephoning, various community organization presentations and distributing information to the voters is time well spent and shared by many on the committee.

Thank you
