  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:07PM

Scott Solla, present Arlington City Councilman, loves his position. If you were not aware, he is running to retain his position No. 3 on the Arlington City Council. I would like to tell you about the man you dont know. Scott is not the type of person who will toot his own horn so I will toot it for him.

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:07PM

As my term as Fire District 19 Commissioner comes to an end, I would like to thank the people of the Silvana community for their support over the past 36 years. I am proud to have been able to serve the neighbors and friends of our small community.

After I had a conversation with my granddaughter this past weekend about the Patriot Act, I would like to submit to you these thoughts.

More to explore

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:07PM

I have been following your Community Report Card editorials with much interest over the past two weeks and I accept your challenge to weigh-in on this issue, particularly the Creativity Index section. Specifically you asked, Is the library checking out more books or fewer? This key question goes right to the heart of the Marysville Community and its interest in education and life-long learning. And Im happy to report that the answer is an enthusiastic yes. Marysville is reading more.

Graham Smith is the best candidate for the at large position on the Arlington City Council.

Marysville school board

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:07PM

I am writing in support of Don Wlazlak for Position 2, Marysville School Board. Don has been an avid supporter of education issues in this community for many years. He has worked on levy and bond campaigns which benefit all the children in our schools.

Punitive Laws

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:07PM

The PEW Charitable Trust reported this week that one in every 100 Americans is incarcerated. That is upsetting. It makes me wonder how many people we can afford to incarcerate under our present punitive laws.

Student Walkout

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:07PM

The student walkout at Totem Middle School is breathtaking. It challenges the imagination to picture 200 students demonstrating in support of increased discipline in a public school.

Thank you

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:07PM

Thank you, Lakewood voters, for your support of the Replacement School Program and Operations Levy and the Technology Levy on the Feb. 19 ballot. The passage of these measures will enable us to continue providing a quality education for the students we serve. It will also enable us to bring modern technology into our classrooms.

Tanker contract

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:07PM

I think this is a sad day in our history to have our national security given to a foreign country. Our respect for our heads of government is at an all-time low when they sell us out rather than support Americans in our great United States of America.

Boeing

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:07PM

The loss of this Boeing 767 tanker deal, the tax hikes on our gas and our homes and the big talk of more tax hikes coming our way should be enough to finally put Gregoire, Murray, Cantwell and Norm Dicks out of work and out to pasture.

My puppy

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:06PM

Although this may not be considered news worthy, the events that occurred on Second Street in Marysville today will stay with me for the rest of my life.

Foundation of education

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:06PM

A good library is the foundation of an educated, well-informed and resourceful community. By voting yes on Nov. 7 for a bond to build a new Arlington library, you will have an opportunity to make a valuable investment in your community.

Bingo Night raises scholarship dollars

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:06PM

On Saturday, Sept. 30, Arlington Dollars for Scholars held a bingo fundraiser at Presidents Elementary School. Our theme was Lets Dine Out, and thanks to the absolutely overwhelming generosity of a number of our local restaurants, we were able to present prizes to 25 people for gift certificates of dinners for two.

Reject I-937

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:06PM

The old phrase, The devil is in the details, has never been more accurate then when applied to Initiative 937.

Are your pets ready when disaster hits?

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:06PM

The recent windstorm is one more real life reminder for all pet owners to be prepared to withstand power outages and harsh weather conditions. If pet owners will take these four steps before the next disaster hits, it can make a difference in the lives of their pets.

Haller Achievers

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:06PM

Recognizing Achievers at Haller (RAH for short) is a program that has a long history at the middle school level and which Haller Middle School carried over from Post Middle School. Students are nominated by their teachers and other staff members to recognize character strengths that help promote a successful school climate, such as leadership, citizenship, sportsmanship, organization skills, creativity in writing and the arts and musical abilities. Students are nominated only once during the school year in order to recognize as many deserving students as possible.

Uniforms in middle school?

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:06PM

I am taking a moment to express my strong disapproval of uniforms for the middle school or high school students. I have two students in the Marysville School District, one entering seventh grade at Cedarcrest and one entering 12th at M-PHS.

A different perspective

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:06PM

This letter presents the subject of abortion from different perspectives (which should satisfy the secular portion of the population). These are never addressed in the media today.

Thank you Masons

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:06PM

A huge thank you to Masons Lodge No. 129 in Arlington. The Masons collected truckloads of clothing to benefit Arlington Kids Kloset and Helping Hands in Arlington. This May marked their Second Annual collection of gently used clothing items from families in the Gleneagle Community. Each May, Gleneagle sponsors a community garage sale event. The Masons gathered donations of clothing from the garage sale, sorted the clothing in the basement of the Lodge and then delivered two truck loads to Arlington Kids Kloset and seven truck loads to Helping Hands.

Random act of kindness

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:06PM

I just wanted to take a moment and share with you a very heartwarming story from last night involving two students from AHS. I just moved to Arlington and have found most everyone to be very kind and friendly, however, my experience last night made me thankful for the area my family now calls home.

OMCC Thank you

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:06PM

On behalf of the Operation Marysville Community Christmas committee, I would like to thank the Marysville community for their continuing support in our efforts to feed hungry families in Marysville during Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Voters do understand

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:06PM

Once again our State Supreme Court threw out a voter-approved initiative (I-747) where we, the citizens of Washington state, voted to limit property tax increases to a 1 percent cap. With this ruling, the law will allow increases up to 6 percent a year.

Thank you

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:06PM

This letter is to thank the Marysville Fire Department. We had an accident involving our 2-year-old grandson. The fire department/medic unit was so fast in responding to our 911 call. When they arrived, they were so thorough and re-assuring.
