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.

Vote yes

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:06PM

As most people are aware, Feb. 19 is the date for the presidential primary. However, it is also the date that the Lakewood School District is asking the voters to approve two measures: The Replacement School Program and Operations Levy and the Technology Levy.

Thank You Arlington

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:06PM

American Legion Post 76 Toys For Kids had a wonderful year. We raised $14,500 which was spent on toys for the less fortunate children who are registered with the Arlington Food Bank. This year, 351 kids got at least two gifts and sock stuffers. To raise this money we put out donation cans, sell cut outs of various denominations, have a live and silent auction and from monetary donations from individuals and businesses.

Wal-Marts lack of quality

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:05PM

Interesting headlines in last weeks paper Lawsuit dropped; Wal-Mart moves ahead with new stores, and just below it City looks to revitalize downtown. My first reaction was, why bother?

Thank you, Arlington

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:05PM

A big Thank you to all the friendly people of Arlington. I want to thank my landlord for giving me a chance to start my life over. I also want to thank Anna from the Bluebird Cafe. She has furnished my apartment right down to the dish soap. I also want to thank Ace Hardware for the groceries and gift card.

Is peace enough?

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:05PM

As I read The Times article on Saturdays Peace Rally I was struck by the naivety of those involved. Peace is a wonderful word that conjures up images of doves, flowers and the like. In order to critically examine events in the Middle East today one really needs to understand what peace means.

Veterans Day articles

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:05PM

First of all, I want to thank you all for the wonderful articles recently about our veterans. Both the Arlington Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post and Aux 1561 and American Legion Post and Aux. 76 really appreciate the words of encouragement for all they do in the community. This is a lovely expression of the communitys gratitude and respect to our veterans. I also want to express how grateful we are to everyone who came to watch the parade, many of whom came up to the veterans and thanked them for their service, to the parents who explained to their children what being a veteran really means, to all that fly the flag, and to the schools that put on such awesome programs.
