Three-Strikes Law Death Penalty

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:57PM

Due to my Letters to the Editor, about reforming the Three-Strikes Law, I have been asked by many, including law enforcement, if I believe in the death penalty. Yes, I do.

The time is now

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:57PM

Saturday, March 24, World TB Day, presents the critical problem that still not enough is being done to stop TB. This grave global public health threat requires an immediate and urgent global response.

Step up to the plate

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:57PM

I am writing to encourage voters to support the coming drive to improve our hospital. Jense and Florence Thompson built the low level portion in the sixties. It has served exceptionally well for many years.

Questions & answers

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:57PM

In response to The Times article of March 21, 2007, Hospital bond set for May 15 ballot, I respectfully request that the administrators of Cascade Valley Hospital publish the following information for the consideration of the electorate:

Snohomish County divorce rates 64 percent higher than national average

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:57PM

A recently published article stating the U.S. divorce rate is at the lowest rate since 1970 doesnt accurately portray divorce statistics in Snohomish County. Regardless of what factors one uses to determine the rise or fall of divorce rates, local divorce statistics from the County Clerk and Auditors Office show the incident of divorce to be much higher in Snohomish County than the national average.

Foster Care

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:57PM

May is National Foster Care Month and I wanted to take the opportunity to thank foster parents for all the work they do caring for foster children. By opening their home and heart, the play a vital roll in the childs healing,

Frog in the water

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:57PM

I recall that if you put a frog in a pan of water on the stove, it wont jump out even though it is being cooked and eventually dies.

Another great spring garage sale

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:57PM

How can we of the Stillaguamish Valley Pioneer Association thank all of you? The yearly (and sometimes biannual) Pioneer Garage Sale grew from a financial necessity to practically a community tradition. Most may not remember those earlier years, when our members (all volunteers) were not only holding the garage sales, but also building a museum at the same time. This continues to be our on going task. Everything takes time and effort. So, like all good things, the sales must come to an end. At our last meeting we voted to retire the garage sale. It in no way reflects the lack of community support in donations or sales. It is more a reflection of our ability to provide the required time and effort to run a successful museum. We will not be accepting items of any kind for sale. We do invite you to come visit our museum and if you are so moved, to join our organization

Apologies

The article entitled CLC honors Duane Weston that appeared in the November 21, 2007 issue of The Arlington Times contained a serious inaccuracy.

Welcome to the neighborhood

Protect the Troops

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:56PM

Rep. Jack Murtha is calling for humane treatment of our military. He has had the audacity to propose a plan that says we should never again send our troops into harms way under-equipped, under-trained and under-rested.

Fighting crime and the justice system

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:56PM

We need to talk some more. For over eight days I was stuck with jury duty and for a week after that I had the flu and I think jury duty was the worst of the two. Our justice system has a lot of flaws in it. There are a lot of things to fix. The idea in this nation of being judged by your peers is flawed. The way the average citizen thinks today I wouldnt want to be judged by them.

Salvation Army thank you

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:56PM

The Salvation Army in Marysville would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to the community of Marysville and surrounding areas for their generosity of resources and time in our efforts to help those affected by the flooding in Lewis County. The donation drop efforts took place last weekend. The donations received included: shovels, animal feed, cleaning products, water, blankets, etc. There was also a large monetary outpouring.

Is it politics again?

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:56PM

I attended an Olympic Rental Association meeting on Saturday, Dec. 8, in Everett, Wash. The Keynote Speaker was Dan Kristiansen, State Representative for District 39. One of the questions he was asked was what he thought about a branch campus of the University of Washington being built in Everett. His response to this question flabbergasted me. He said he could not support this effort.

Insurance industry madder than a wet hen

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:56PM

During the last congressional session here in Washington State, the Fair Insurance Conduct Act was signed into law. The Act insures fair treatment by the insurance industry. Customers pay premiums and now insurance companies must pay claims as they advertise they do.

The Mountain Loop needs your voice; no motocross racing park for centuries

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:56PM

I, the Mountain Loop have provided a natural environment for you to get in touch with nature. You have enjoyed hiking my trails, camping in one of my many campgrounds, fishing or kayaking on one of the many streams, creeks or rivers I provide.

Mountain Loop Dustbowl

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:56PM

Going green is sensible. Reducing our carbon footprint is sensible. Evidence mounts daily that it may even be critical to the future of our planet.

Only ADM and corporate corn growers win

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:56PM

The World Watch Institute lists 16 crops that can be used to make ethanol and/or bio-diesel. The group, reprinted in a recent Ode magazine, shows switchgrass at 1,150 gallons per acre and hemp at 1,000. Corn comes in at a paltry 345 gallons. Neither switchgrass nor hemp needs large inputs of fertilizer pesticides or water as does corn and neither is a food crop as corn is. This is an important issue because the increasing competition between corn as food for animals, including humans, and corn as feed stock for liquid fuels is causing the costs of such food as dairy products, cheese and butter, etc., and meats, such as pork and chicken, to skyrocket.

Thank you Marysville Library

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:56PM

On Friday, July 20, the staff of the Marysville Branch of Sno-Isle library hosted a Harry Potter party from 10 p.m. to midnight. Snacks, prizes and activities for all ages were provided in a safe and well-organized environment and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Many thanks again to our Marysville Branch of the Sno-Isle Library for another great event.

Arlington Downtown Revitalization project a visionary example

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:56PM

The Arlington Downtown Revitalization project has been a visionary example of what can be done when local government has enlightened leadership. The planning, the knowledge of what needs to be done daily and the open communications are absolutely incredible. The spirit of cooperation among the city, local businesses and the Strider Construction people shows how good a project of this magnitude can go.

Reconsider ordinance

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:56PM

In September of this year, the city of Arlington imposed a fee on all properties of the city for a stormwater utility. As this was a new fee, and as our neighborhood does not have gutters, curbs, sidewalks, sewers or storm drains I wondered how it applied to our property and that of our neighbors. In our utility bill there was a brief explanation that the City Council imposed the fee after much study and if we had any questions we could contact Cristy Brubaker at the Public Works Department.

Bazaar successful

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:56PM

On behalf of the Loyal Heights Community Club we would like to thank The Arlington Times, The Marysville Globe, groups and individuals who donated items for sale and the greater Arlington community for supporting our recent successful fall bazaar.

Proposition 1

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:56PM

The Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce has as its mission to cultivate a business community that works together to enhance economic vitality in the Greater Arlington area. In May, the citizens of our community will be asked to pass Proposition 1, a $45 million bond issue to improve and modernize the emergency room facilities at Cascade Valley Hospital.

Caring staff

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:56PM

We have lived in Arlington our entire lives and all eight of our children were born at Cascade Valley Hospital. With eight active children, we have also visited the ER many times and have always been thankful for the prompt service and caring staff.
