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

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

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

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

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

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.

School Board incompetent, not students

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:05PM

Recently the Everett Herald printed an editorial, followed by an Arlington Times story describing Arlington schools as dropout factories in a study conducted by Johns Hopkins University. The Arlington drop out rate is listed as 40 percent. It should be noted that the Johns Hopkins study used data from three years, not the four years usually considered in similar studies.

Library Bond to run again in May

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:05PM

One might wonder why the Library Bond Committee is actively working on submitting another opportunity for the voters in the Library Capital Facilities Area to support the construction of a new library in Arlington.

Thank You, Marysville Firefighters

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:05PM

On March 8, Marysvilles finest held a fundraiser called Fuel the Flaim at Bostons Pizza in Smokey Point. In a show of solidarity and compassion, Marysville Firefighters gave up their time for a Lake Stevens Firefighter/Paramedic who was stricken with cancer.

Thank you

The front page of The Marysville Globe on March 12 read, Students may face discipline for walkout.

The Drop Box

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:05PM

The recent reaction to the presence of our drop-off box for donations of clothing, in a letter in the Feb. 29 edition of The Marysville Globe, indicates a lack of knowledge about Northwest Centers place in Skagit County and surrounding communities. There is much more to this bin than meets the eye.

Levy or assessed value?

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:05PM

The front-page article of Feb. 27, Local Tax Hike Highest in County, I believe is misleading. The article suggests the increase in residential property taxes was due in large part to school levies. In reviewing my yearly real estate tax summaries from the Snohomish County Treasurer, I see the levy rate has actually decreased, while the assessed value of land increased dramatically and buildings somewhat less dramatically.

Good Wages

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:05PM

Those governments who profess to be concerned about our potential slippage into a Bush recession should take heed of the words of one of our earliest industrial tycoons. Nearly 100 years ago Henry Ford wrote, an unemployed man is an out-of-work customer. He cannot buy. An underpaid man is a customer reduced in purchasing power. He cannot buy. Business depression is caused by weakened purchasing power. The cure of business depression is purchasing power and the source of purchasing power is wages.

Deserve accolades, not punishment

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:04PM

Regarding the recent staged walkout of Totem Middle School Students, it is my opinion that nothing like this occurs unless things are at crisis stage. These children are crying out for help and relief from a dysfunctional and intolerable lack of safety. I applaud their strength and courage to do what was necessary to get the communitys attention.

Arlington Library

What is truly important in our lives? What are the things we really treasure for ourselves, our family and our community? When we chose to live in Arlington, what were the things that we looked for that made Arlington more special than other communities? Think about the time when the serious decision was made for our families to live in or around Arlington.

Totem Student Walkout

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:04PM

I totally agree with Councilman John Kosters Letter to the Editor. This is a breathtaking moment. Everything he said in his letter, I totally agree with.

Arlington is proud of you

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:04PM
