Thank you for papers

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:54PM

I am absolutely thrilled with the Marysville Globe and Arlington Times taking the progressive step of delivering their excellent newspapers free to our community. I am a long-time Marysville resident, mother, grandmother, public school teacher and community activist and have long appreciated the excellent news coverage of the papers as well as their dedication to community building. I was gratified to read Bob Graefs excellent and tolerant piece on the Ruckus over Illegal Immigrants and was so excited that it would be read by many more people because of this bold move for free subscriptions by our home-town newspapers.

Thank you, Arlington

It was gratifying to see the plight of the widows in Burundi and how members of Curves in Arlington were able to provide housing for the widow Asenata. But the rest of the story is even more exciting. By the time we were done with our Christmas campaign, most of the club membership had contributed to the purchase of two homes and two individual members had purchased houses all by themselves. This totaled four homes built and two widows supported and all funds went directly to the widows, with nothing withheld for administration costs.

Thank you, Tribes

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:54PM

The members of the Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society would like to thank the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians for the generous grant we received from them in January. Since our Society is non-profit, the Tribes financial assistance is greatly appreciated.

Rescued

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:54PM

Trapped on a ledge 65 feet down a cliff face, above a sheer 100-foot drop to the river would be a terrible way to die. Especially in the rain, in the dark.

A multitude of reasons

I-933 a choice between greed and good?

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:54PM

Mr. John Burbank states in his editorial in the Everett Herald, Wednesday, Nov. 15, that Initiative 933 was a choice between greed and public good. I resent that implication. I stand to lose several acres of land I purchased some 50 years ago that has a beautiful creek running through the middle of it.

No understanding of cultural war

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:54PM

In his letter of Nov. 8, Bob Henry asks two rhetorical questions. The implication of his letter and these questions is the U.S. should cut and run in Iraq, withdrawing from the field of battle and abandoning the Iraqi people. It is obvious that neither he nor others who have broached the same idea have any understanding of the cultural war being waged against Western Civilization nor knowledge of what will occur if the new political group in Washington, D.C., does surrender and retreat.

Bush just the whipping boy

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:54PM

The Democratic campaign for this Novembers election was based solely on hatred for President Bush. Instead of directing their efforts to defeat our enemy, they want to destroy this present Commander in Chief.

Arlington aids Gulf Coast

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:54PM

Now that a year has passed, the Mississippi Gulf Coast is seeing the fruits of the labor provided by the many generous people who have tirelessly assisted in our recovery and rebuilding efforts.

We support Proposition 1

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:53PM

When my husband and I moved to Arlington 11 years ago, we were drawn by the small town atmosphere and strong community feel.

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:53PM

The North County Branch Board of Housing Hope would like to thank those who attended the agencys Community of Hope Dinner on March 15 at the Hawthorn Inn & Suites in Smokey Point. The event was well attended and the financial contributions made were very generous. The evening was graciously underwritten by the event sponsors which included: Washington Mutual, Wells Fargo, Northwest Plus Credit Union, North County Bank, Lenz Enterprises, Metron & Associates and Cuz Concrete Products, Inc. All proceeds from the event will help to renew hope for vulnerable families in the North County region of Snohomish County. Again, thank you. We hope to see you again next year.

Girl Scouts

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:53PM

Girl Scouts Totem Council in Snohomish County would like to publicly thank the 1,000 plus Girl Scout volunteers who give their time and talents to support girls in the 10 service areas in Snohomish County. Without volunteers, the 3,350 girl scouts in Snohomish County would not be getting the outstanding programs that the volunteers provide through the many activities they do with our girls. These activities include such things as outdoor cooking, exploring math and science, entrepreneur opportunities and of course community service and crafts.

An excellent hospital

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:53PM

Please approve

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:53PM

We have been operating a business in Arlington since 1986. This community has been a large part of our success and in turn we want to support our community in passing Proposition 1 on the May 15 ballot to upgrade and improve Cascade Valley Hospital.

WASL

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:53PM

One of the primary purposes of our public schools is to help every child become an engaged citizen who is willing and able to actively participate in our democracy. A high school diploma is our seal of approval that a young person has demonstrated their readiness for this responsibility. There are many ways to measure this readiness. It undermines the core values of democracy to use a single test to deny this right-of-passage to students because of their minority or socioeconomic status. This is effectively what a high-stakes WASL does.

Eco-system

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:53PM

I just sent this letter to the city of Marysville. I think the public has a right to know what they are up to.

Oppose transit park-and-ride

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:53PM

Recently The Arlington Times and The Marysville Globe published an article concerning the possible location of a transit center in the center of the retail area in Smokey Point. The article indicated that Community Transit would not proceed with their proposal if the project met with local opposition. This letter is written with the intent to convey some of the reasons why this proposal will be met with opposition from the local business community.

Seeking donations

Thank you for the Hospital

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:53PM

Where do we begin in thanking all the people involved in passage of the bond for renovation and new construction at Cascade Valley Hospital? The voters should be given accolades for recognizing the need for expansion of the emergency department and other areas of the hospital. You provided the votes needed to make it happen.
