Mankind has become so much one family that we cannot insure our own prosperity except by insuring that of everyone else. If you wish to be happy yourself, you must resign yourself to seeing others also happy.

Mandating state contraceptive education (done), removing the supermajority to build, operate schools (not doneyet)

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:19PM

We now will have a law saying that if a Washington school teaches sex ed it has to teach about contraceptives as well as abstinence. And we have had serious moves to eliminate the necessity of a supermajority vote to pass school bonds and levies that as yet is not law (ESJR 8207/EHJR 4204).

Norm Maleng gives a lifetime of public service

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:19PM

Norm Malengs problem, I thought and why he got left at the post in his two tries for governor and one for attorney general, was that he found it difficult to blow his own horn.

Strawberry Festival offers something for everyone

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:19PM

Everyone has their favorite Strawberry Festival activity. For some its the Grand Parade or the fireworks that follow. For others it may be the Pig Out on the Farm, the trike races, the Funtastic carnival, the talent show or the Berry Run. For many, last years inaugural Poochapalooza became an instant favorite and will return this year.

Knowledge is power Arlington

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 27, 2008 at 8:17PM

I think there should be a new library in Arlington because our town has grown and the facility we now have is to small for the size of the community. We need to promote reading because that is a gift that everyone should have in their life.

Vote before May 20

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 27, 2008 at 8:17PM

I wonder what motivates the 25 or more people who are working so tirelessly on the Committee for a New Arlington Library. They obviously realize how important a new and expanded library is for the Arlington community. I am thankful for their dedication to this very worthwhile cause. Our time at committee meetings, work parties, telephoning, various community organization presentations and distributing information to the voters is time well spent and shared by many on the committee.

Thank you

U-18 ASA Softball Girls, coached by Jeff Perrine, would like to give a huge thanks to all the many businesses that donated for the April 26 auction. There are too many to print, and we deeply appreciate each one of you.

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.

Thank you, Arlington, for your welcome to guests at your fabulous Fly-In in early July. We made it to your street fair, walked and drove about to enjoy the air.

Here is a story to remember and there are 10 women who can verify it.

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

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:12PM

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.
