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.

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

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:04PM

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

A huge Hi-five and round of applause to our Arlington Eagles Hi-Q team and their dazzling victory in this years Hi-Q competition over Kamiak and Stanwood.

Thank you

I would like to thank the Sunnyside PTSA and the Sunnyside community in Marysville for the support they have shown for the music program at Sunnyside Elementary School. On March 14, there was a garage sale at the school sponsored by the PTSA.

Bayview Trail

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:04PM

I was disappointed in the lack of balance in the recent story about the city of Marysvilles Bayview Trail. As anyone who has ever run, biked or pushed a stroller down the Centennial Trail can tell you, trails are family places that encourage healthy recreation. Studies have shown they actually reduce crime by creating public space. Most people consider trails a desirable amenity meaning property values increase, not decrease.

Traffic dangers

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:04PM

I would like to congratulate The Globe/Times staff members who won WNPA awards but would like to challenge one of them to cover an accident waiting to happen.

Online vs. library

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:04PM

Boy, where have I been? According to Brian Laine (Oct. 18, letters to the editor) I no longer need the Arlington Public Library because I can get it all from my little old home computer. Wow. Lets see he must mean that I can get those 30 to 40 books I check out each month online for free? And I can get all those wonderful magazines I borrow for free online? And my husband can get all those blues, jazz, and Bob Dylan CDs online for free? And all those woodworking books he checks out? For free online? How about all that local family history research I do for others? Its online for free, too? And those DVDs I borrow for free? What a dummy Ive been.

Vote for Doug Roulstone

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:04PM

As a retired military person and a member of two military fraternal organizations, I take umbrage over Representative Rick Larsens television campaign commercials. I have to admit that he is a good campaigner but what he says and what he has done are two completely different things.

Larger libraries allow for more resources

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:04PM

I would like to thank Managing Librarian Leslie Moore for all of the help she gave me the last two-and-a-half years while I was researching the history of the women ancestors of my granddaughters two families in order to make her the quilt that hung on the library wall this summer. She very patiently helped me acquire skills I never thought Id have for doing online research, even on two different occasions giving the same lesson on how to really research on the Internet.

Salmon bake a success

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:04PM

The firemen from Oso Fire District No. 25 wish to thank everyone for their donations and help making the 2006 annual salmon bake a success.

We need McGavick

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:04PM

The voters of Washington state have the opportunity to correct a mistake they made in November 2000 when they elected Maria Cantwell to replace Senator Slade Gorton. She won by 2,239 votes after late King County election counts came in. Coincidentally, she won in the same manner as Christine Gregoire won the governors office in 2004.

I-933 is devastating

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:04PM

The last six Washington governors, including the current one, Christine Gregoire, and both Republicans and Democrats of the past have all come together to oppose Initiative 933. Theres a very good reason for this: it is a devastating proposal.

Strong support

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:04PM

I am writing in strong support of the Cascade Valley Hospital facility Bond proposal.

Future generations

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:04PM

As our community grows, Cascade Valley Hospital needs to expand and upgrade certain services or it will not survive.

Upgrades

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:03PM

I have lived in Arlington most of my life and I cant imagine our town without Cascade Valley Hospital and the services it has provided for so many years. However, it is time for these services to be up-graded and we now have the opportunity to make that possible on May 15 by voting Yes on Proposition 1.

How about a mall

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:03PM

Im sitting in my chair looking out the window across the street. There is an old house being vacated and I believe it was built in old Haller City. The space between the home and the Food Pavilion seems to me would be a great place for a mall. Id hate to see the old house being torn down though. There are quite a few homes here in Old Haller City and theyre beautiful in my eyes but Ive never seen a picture of them in the paper.

Life-Long Obligation

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:03PM

My wife and I have been privileged to live and work in this great community that we were both born and raised in. A large part of the draw that keeps us here in Arlington is the quality of life that we all share. Our community provides us with great schools, hospital and medical services, city government, police and fire, parks, etc., that allows us a sense of ownership. Cascade Valley Hospital is a key and important part of the mix that we all call our neighborhood. Aside from providing excellent medical services, the hospital district brings over four hundred jobs to our area.

City Council

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:03PM

In the nine years I have lived in Arlington, I have written a Letter to the Editor on several occasions. These letters have often been to bring attention to some community activity or to thank people for their support of those activities. Occasionally, I wrote about something in the community that was bothering me. Todays letter is different from previous letters, but it is not totally un-related. I have filed to run for the Arlington City Council. There were many factors that went into this long thought-out decision, but rest easy, I am not going to bore you with all of them. I do, however, think it is important for voters to have a sense of why a person wants to serve in public office and what that person brings to the office.
