Badmouthing America abroad

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:09PM

I recently returned from a tour of India. The tour group was composed mostly of elite academia, totaling 14. They were extreme liberals who never stopped condemning America. For example: President Bush is a war criminal and should be put to death, or President Bush wants to destroy Social Security and starve the old people. They blamed America first, America was always wrong.

Thanks, Hard Hats

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:09PM

I walked up the Stilly Trail to get to the Post Office. I walked up from the Fountain Drive, in through the alley to get to Frontier Bank, in order to get to the fabric shop and other stores. I alley-ed it again and managed, with my walker through the gravel, to get to the American Legion No. 76, using the Stilly Trail and Fire Lane until I had to switch to the alleys again on McLeod Street. I only missed five days making my trips. Shopping in Arlington wasnt all that bad, the hard hats offered me help and also told me they were amazed seeing me everyday getting where I needed to go.

Thank you, sponsors

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:09PM

We would like to express appreciation to all of the sponsors who made the holiday season brighter for the children we serve in our Therapeutic Foster Care Program at Compass Health. We were so touched by the outpouring of support from the community.

First task for Greene

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:09PM

I do not know Tom Greene as Ms. Debbie Wold does and I have no reason to doubt her assessment of Mr. Greene as an experienced man of honesty and integrity.

Why focus on Cuba?

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:09PM

Wouldnt you think George Bush had enough on his plate to deal with? Iraq. Afghanistan. Darfur. Sudan. Threats from Turkey over the Kurdish PKK attacks on their border. Iranian aspirations for more influence in the Middle East. Rising oil and gas prices. Runaway fires in California. The list grows longer day-by-day.

40 days for life

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:09PM

Since Sept. 26, I have been involved in the nationwide 40 Days for Life campaign at the Everett Planned Parenthood, lead by Michelle McIntyre. The purpose of 40 Days for Life is to end the scourge of abortion, especially at Planned Parenthood. Further, we seek to intercede before a woman makes a decision to terminate a pregnancy.

Job or education?

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:09PM

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. So, I filed for unemployment benefits. Meanwhile, I am two quarters away from graduating from ITT with my associates degree in Drafting. For the last year-and-a-half I have been attending school full-time, with a current GPA of 3.75, while working full-time as a residential concrete worker and full-time single parent who is also current on all child support. The State of Washington, in its infinite wisdom, has decided that because of my full time student status, I am unavailable for work and therefore has denied my unemployment benefits due. When did it become more important in this country to have a job than to have an education? Should our high school freshman focus their attention more on resume writing and job search tactics, so that when they turn 16 they can get a job and quit school altogether, after all, isnt a job more important? Perhaps instead of passing the WASL to graduate, they should be required to have a full-time job. What is the message we are teaching our children, dont bother with college, get a job, its more important? Ironically, these types of laws were passed by people with college educations and one wonders where they would be right now if they were taught by people who felt that work is more important than an education.

Paper mush

Sorry to bother you but so far it looks like the Arlington Times delivery system is not working not on Burn Road at least.

Now is the time

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:09PM

Our Arlington Library gives us access to large collections of books, newspapers, magazines, movies and music. It hosts book clubs, performances and art, all for our education and entertainment and all free to use. We have important reasons to support funding a new library.

Why I value our library

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:08PM

As a child growing up in Seattle I was always fascinated by the downtown library on Fourth Avenue. Even though I did not check anything out, I enjoyed wandering through and just looking at all of the books on the shelves.

Rid County of FCCs

I wish to thank all the people of the greater Marysville area for making our annual Christmas tree recycling a success. Your generous contributions to Boy Scout Troops 80, 81, 82, 84 and 419 help them to continue to provide a quality program for the boys.

Is it illegal?

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:08PM

I just received my 2008 Real Estate Tax statement. I was shocked by the fact that Snohomish County had raised my property taxes by over 13 percent. I immediately called several friends, who stated the same thing.

Proposition 1

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:08PM

My family and I have been residents of Arlington since 1975. When we have used the ER at Cascade Valley Hospital we have had positive experiences.

Protect our health care

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:08PM

In 1987, Cascade Valley Hospital completed a major expansion. That year about 5,600 patients were treated in the new Emergency Department. Last year the same facility saw nearly 22,000 patients. In 1987 the population of Arlington was 3,500. Today it is 15,000, and expected to double by the year 2025.

As a commissioners wife at District 14, I would like to bring to everyones attention the Fire Districts Proposition 1, which is to be voted on May 15.

Amazing growth

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:08PM

I recently visited Arlington, where I lived until I graduated from high school in 1968, for the first time in over 10 years. Having lived in Southern California for almost 40 years, my vision of future retirement has been that of living at least part of the year in the small town atmosphere coupled with above average infrastructure that Arlington provides.

Humbled

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:08PM

I am humbled; I am in awe, kneeling but five feet from the monstrance, the vessel used to publicly show, worship and honor the Eucharistic Jesus Christ. Radiating rays of purified gold surround the body of Jesus within the monstrance. It is like the Transfiguration of Christ arrayed in dazzling brightness.
