Thank you from the Salvation Army

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:59PM

On Aug. 24, The Salvation Army officially opened our satellite office in Marysville, Wash., designed to provide emergency family services to the communities of Marysville, Tulalip and northern Snohomish County. What was truly amazing to us was the wonderful reception we received from your community since we first announced our plans.

Thats a lot of tax dollars

A state study last year showed that 42 percent of newly incarcerated people in our correctional facilities had been there before and were repeat offenders. Between thousands of people recycling back into state prisons each year and the tough mandatory minimum sentencing laws, we are unable to build prisons as fast as we are filling them.

A great reflection

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:59PM

As the current cross country season for Arlington High School comes to a close, we would like to express our appreciation and respect for the coaches of the team. As parents, we have been involved with the cross-country team for the past six years. Both of our daughters have run for the team. The coaches instill a sense of camaraderie, dedication, fun and self-discipline that gives the students the drive to run farther than they ever thought they could and the motivation to continue pushing themselves. Weve seen these attributes spill into other areas of our daughters lives, such as academics, tennis, track and helping others.

The headlines shout the real story. Sony leads solar-cell production; Toyota number one in world car sales; environmentally based new jobs in Germany top 170,000; thousands of Chinese produced CFLs saving money for American households; Germany leading the world in wind power production; California takes strong action to cut carbon dioxide emission.

For the past 12 years Arlington High School DECA has been adopting families to help provide a Christmas for them. This year has been yet another successful year. You might have seen a DECA member standing outside your local grocery stores collecting canned goods and money.

Lip service

Its really interesting to see what government says and what it really does. Believe it or not, the two arent always the same. Lets forget, for the moment, things at the federal level. Instead lets concentrate on the local scene.

They set the record

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:59PM

It was with great interest that I read your 25 years ago 1983 entry in the Jan. 16 edition of The Globe. I would like to share the rest of the story.

Work or school?

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:59PM

I recently found myself out of work. The falling real-estate market has caused the construction company I work(ed) for to discontinue building until the market demand increases.

I am writing to give your some information regarding our club, Old Bags Of Arlington.

Thanks from Food Bank

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:59PM

On behalf of the Marysville Community Food Bank, I want to thank all those caring and generous people in the Marysville area who contributed so generously to meet out needs for food boxes during the holiday season.

Thank you for your service

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:59PM

Many times we take for granted those protecting us and Id like to take the opportunity to thank several people in the Snohomish County Sheriffs office for their service and the generosity they have and continue to show all of us. First, Id like to thank Sheriff Rick Bart for all the years of dedicated service hes provided the citizens of our County.

Backfired

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:59PM

So, Hillary has made her stand on her vote to go to war, and will dig in her heels. And it amounts to the same old, sad old story of all the senators who voted yes with her: they relied on the president, and he misled them.

A Problem

Father figures

Hi, My name is Bev Smith. I am a single, widowed mother with two young sons to raise yet, out of five. Dan and Dave are 17 and 13 now. They lost their father three years ago this February, to cancer.

Old Bags of Arlington

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:58PM

The Old Bags of Arlington have been around for over 20 years. All though we do have a lot of fun, we also love helping others. You all know we do baskets for the holidays but we also give to the kids baseball teams, Girls State, Toys for Kids and various other needs in the community.

Thank you

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:58PM

Every once in a while you get news that really knocks the wind right out of you. That was the case a couple of weeks ago when I received word that my brother, Howard Olsen had passed away. It was a Sunday and I had just enough time to meet with my nieces and their families before returning to Olympia for the legislative session. Believe me, the trip was not an easy one.

Time to act

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:58PM

Much has been written in the past couple of months regarding improving the U.S. 2 trestle. It is very unfortunately that nothing was done to secure funding back in 2004, when it would have cost $345 to replace the entire structure. Now, here we are a mere three years later and what will we be paying for? What the DOT calls access ramps (since they claim that capacity is not the problem) for $486 million, which, by the way, construction is not slated to begin until 2016. In addition to the DOT, many public officials have said that we should wait until funding becomes available to fix the structure. Wait for what? Wait for tens of thousands of more residents to move to south Marysville, Granite Falls, Lake Stevens, Snohomish, Monroe and all points in between? Wait until the cost rises into the billions? Wait until its takes over an hour to travel the two-mile stretch at 5 a.m.? We cannot wait to fix this nightmare. Whether by creating a special taxing district, introducing tolls, requesting assistance from the federal government or some other form, the time to act is now.

Tom Greene for Sheriff

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:58PM

I write in response to Mark Griswolds letter dated Oct. 24, 2007. Were you at the kick off breakfast that Ken Hutcherson spoke at Mr. Griswold? I was there and there was no mention of the gay issue. What Ken spoke on was adoption, which is an issue very close to the hearts of both Tom Greene and Ken Hutcherson.

Wheres the Math?

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:58PM

Several days ago a friend asked why I was again standing for election to the Arlington School Board. I pointed out that the current school board administration were failing to provide an adequate education for children resident in the Arlington area and I considered this unacceptable.

Poker & Paws Walk raises $16,000

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:58PM

We had a dog-gone great time. This year, Cascade Valley Hospital Foundations 5K Poker & Paws Walk event was, again, a huge success. After all was said and done and the last of dog hair was swept away, we tallied up our dollars and raised more than $16,000, our best year yet. None of this could have been accomplished were it not for the generosity of our sponsors.

War totals equal population of Mukilteo

For every one of the two trillion dollars spent during the three-plus years of the Iraqi war, a hundred questions have been asked and a thousand answers given.

SVC instructor speaks out for safety and the future of trucking

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:58PM

What does it take for all of you to drive a little safer and be more careful on the roadways? Ive been training entry-level truck drivers for almost 21 years and am concerned about how you, the motoring public, operate your vehicles. You see the large yellow Caution: Student Driver signs on the back of the trailers announcing to the motoring public that a rookie or novice driver is at the controls of the vehicle directly in front of them. We have taken the precautions to warn the public of the dangers, but the sad part of the overall story is that no one seems to care about safety anymore.

Stillaguamish tribe a good neighbor

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:58PM

The volunteers at the Stillaguamish Valley Pioneer Museum in Arlington received a grant from the Stillaguamish Tribe to help purchase a carved cedar map of the watershed through the Stillaguamish Valley. We want to thank the Tribe for its generosity in contributing dollars for a 7-foot by 12-foot carving.
