I would like to thank the North County Fire Authority for the outstanding care that I received in May when I had gone to the fire department. Even though I am not in their district I was treated no differently.

Law of Unintended Consequences

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:13PM

The Charley Rose show on PBS, Feb. 13, featured Richard Branson. Branson, British entrepreneur and idea-man was discussing the dismal reality of global warming and the critical need to act to halt or slow its effects. As part of his discussion, he threw out a fact which, to me at least, was astonishing.

A crime to litter

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:13PM

I agree with other readers that its a good idea to provide The Arlington Times to everyone free of charge. However, I strongly disagree with the delivery process youve chosen. Have you driven up Burn Road lately, or have you visited my neighborhood in Jordan River Trails? The roads are littered with copies of The Arlington Times. It looks terrible. If youre going to continue providing your paper for free, either leave it in newsstands, like the Little Nickel, or provide paper boxes for everyone in your circulation. Its a crime to litter and to those people who dont read The Times, thats exactly what youre doing.

Perhaps the metal tree

  • Jan 2, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 27, 2008 at 8:13PM

This summer, as I was going to a store down below, I was sitting in my fathers truck as we drove past Arlington to the Interstate. Sitting there for 30 minutes as we drove down to go do something didnt bother me much, but on that summer day a little bit of the city had crawled its way up here and dug its claws into the skyline, proclaiming that we were no longer safe from the city anymore.

Endorsed by police chiefs and sheriffs

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:12PM

Tom Greene is endorsed by police chiefs and sheriffs because he has worked his way to earn all of the skill sets to run a large police agency. Nearly every agency leader has the same set of academic and professional credentials plus experience base. Tom is the only candidate who has earned these and the only candidate that the public does not have to train for four years to be sheriff.

Thank you for the Dedication of the Lamp Post

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:12PM

On behalf of our entire family, we wish to thank the Silvana Fair Board for its touching dedication of the 2007 fair to Martin Danner. We were especially moved by the Dedication of the Lamp Post at noon. For many years, dad could not wait to get up at 5 a.m. on the fourth Saturday of July and drag out all of the electrical cords, speakers and do whatever else electrical people needed. He seemed to just get done by 930 a.m., to then run the Kids Games. From the Danner family, thank you.

If the Democrats continue with their continuous stalling, they get to create another Vietnam

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:12PM

I am a Vietnam Veteran. Treated like dirt, shunned by most democrats and abused by the Social Welfare System. They are afraid of getting their hands dirty.

Vote for new library

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:12PM

The Arlington Library is a community treasure. It is alive with activity from the tiny tots to the seniors leaning on canes. The librarians and staff are helpful, cheerful and pleasant.

Donation confusion

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:12PM

For 26 years Arlington has had a thrift store named Helping Hands. People helping people. The store takes donations from the community then sells them back by the bag full.

Ruining the park

Welcome to the Crown Ridge Community. Between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m., and 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., you can look to your right just after passing the high school, and you will see between 10 and 20 high school students standing, sitting and urinating in the park belonging to the neighborhood.

For our children

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:12PM

As an elected official charged with ensuring the safety and well-being of over 5,200 students in the Arlington Public Schools, I feel it is absolutely essential to our community that we continue to have a vital emergency room at Cascade Valley Hospital.

Thank you Cascade Valley Hospital

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:12PM

Many thanks to Arlingtons Cascade Valley Hospital for the outstanding care I was given for any emergency surgery in August of last year. I am so thankful that I was properly diagnosed and I was able to be taken in for surgery when I arrived at the hospital. The staff on the surgery floor was all so kind and efficient and I had wonderful care during my stay. What a blessing it was to be in good hands.

An important part of the community

We are lifelong members of the Arlington community and value the quality of life we have enjoyed. Cascade Valley Hospital is an important and essential part of our community.

Unfair testing

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:12PM

Imagine yourself as an 11-year-old boy. You are a kind, considerate young man. You have been in a special education program since you were in the first-grade and receive daily assistance with reading. This year, you have been particularly proud of yourself because you have made great strides in improving your reading ability. Many times you have reminded your teacher, with a big smile on your face, that you feel so good about how much better you are doing with your reading and thanked her for all she has done for you. After much hard work, you can finally read at a second-grade level.

The Humane Society of the United States wishes to thank and congratulate U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell for passing a bill to strengthen the nations laws against dog fighting and cockfighting. Cantwells bill, the Animal Fighting Prohibition Enforcement Act, passed the U.S. Senate unanimously. The U.S. House of Representatives had previously cleared its version by a landslide vote of 368-39, and it is now on the Presidents desk.

Yes on the hospital

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:12PM

North Snohomish County is a great place to live. While there are many things that make it that way, good medical facilities are an important part of the picture. With advances in medicine, the growth of the area and the aging of the current buildings, our hospital is due for a makeover. We need to replace the 1957 building and remodel the 1984 building. That will happen only if we approve the hospital bond levy. Simple choice, best affordable hospital, or something less. Vote, and vote Yes for the hospital.

Utmost importance

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:11PM

I am writing this letter to let you know how important the upcoming hospital bond issue is to our community. Last year we were blessed with a beautiful granddaughter who was delivered at Cascade Valley Hospital. The birthing process was handled wonderfully by Dr. Hoffman and the staff. We even had the luxury of being the only family on the maternity ward that night. As the night wore on though, it got increasingly cold, (this was in February), to make matters worse, the air vent was blowing cold air directly overhead. The nurse on duty that night came in and brought us extra blankets and told us the heat was not operating on the floor that night.

The world has changed

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:11PM

In his autobiography Mein Kampf, Adolph Hitler stated, For when a people is not willing or able to fight for its existence Providence in its eternal justice has decreed that peoples end. In the late 1930s, Hitler sensed the weakness and equivocation of the great European nations and knew that, if he moved with deceit and swift resolve, he would have a chance to crush Europe. It was, in the end, a close thing because Europeans had become complacent.

Forty Days for Life

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:11PM

Forty Days for Life is a spiritual time calling upon God to hear our prayers and end the tragedy of abortion in our neighborhoods, state, and nation. It is a time of prayer, while respectfully being present outside facilities that perform abortions, primarily Planned Parenthood. It is a time to pray for those individuals who enter the facilities as an employee doctor, nurse, staff or patient the mother, the father and their baby.
