Arlington bank robbery suspect strikes again in Snohomish
Jul 29 2011, 12:25 PM
ARLINGTON — Close to a month later, Arlington police are still searching for a bank robbery suspect whose image was captured on video.
"Snohomish just had a bank robbery with the same suspect and the exact same M.O. as ours," Arlington Police Detective Peter Barrett said of the July 28 robbery of the Key Bank in Snohomish. Just as the Snohomish robbery occurred shortly before 4:30 p.m., the June 30 robbery of the Chase Bank in Arlington occurred at approximately 4:20 p.m.
The suspect has been described as a white male in his mid 40s to early 50s, standing between 5'5" to 5'8" tall and weighing between 230 to 260 pounds, with "a medium build with a large gut." At both robberies, he was seen wearing dirty blue jeans and a black Carhartt-style jacket. Barrett added that the suspect has grayish hair, is slightly balding and was described as having a "quiet demeanor."

MARYSVILLE — Washington state Attorney General Rob McKenna wanted the Greater Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce to know that he's touted their communities as a success story to other state organizations, even as he acknowledged that the state government needs to step up parts of its service to citizens of Marysville, Tulalip and beyond.
McKenna opened his remarks at the Chamber's July 29 Business Before Hours by describing Silicon Energy, which he visited with city of Marysville officials on May 11, as one of the companies that "wants to be in Marysville," due to the city's business-friendly climate. He likewise praised the Marysville Arts & Technology High School as an example of the "innovation in education" that he sees being done by the Marysville School District.

Red-light cameras | OPINION
Aug 10 2011, 9:57 AM
Timmy Eyman’s at it again. (I’ll call him Timmy until he shows an adult’s sense of social responsibility.) Each time Timmy backs something, I get such a knee-jerk reaction to lean the opposite way that I have to sit back to inspect my own position. But he did get me to try to reason through the hoopla surrounding Monroe’s attempt to install red-light cameras at two intersections.
Ground broken on 156th St. over-crossing
Aug 11 2011, 3:25 PM
SMOKEY POINT — With a few shovels of turned earth, the goal of an I-5 over-crossing at 156th Street came one step closer to reality on Aug. 11.
"By next year we should be able to traipse over it for the first time," said Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring, who was joined at the official groundbreaking ceremony at 156th Street NE and Smokey Point Boulevard by members of the Marysville City Council and city staff, as well as guests such as former Marysville Mayor Dennis Kendall and representatives for U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen.
Nehring recalled how the City Council had approved a construction bid of approximately $9.7 million by Renton-based Guy F. Atkinson Construction in June, as well as how Larsen had visited the planned construction site in February with city staff, including Marysville City Engineer John Cowling.
By connecting Smokey Point Boulevard to Twin Lakes Avenue across I-5, Nehring hopes not only to improve public safety and emergency response times, but also to ease traffic congestion on 172nd Street NE and provide another access point to attract as many as 10,000 light industrial and manufacturing jobs in north Marysville.
