Thank you one cannot place a value on life

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:03PM

I would like to thank the two men who rescued my husband and son after my husband went overboard on his boat near the Shipwreck in the Sound on Aug. 24, at approximately 7 a.m.

Here are a few facts

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:03PM

The proposed Motocross Track complex along the Mountain Loop Highway has begun to stir debate, which is important toward the community making the best decision. The proposal can also generate arguments not based in reason and cloud the facts. Here are a few facts.

Not in my backyard, please

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:03PM

In response to Pro Motocross Track, I am all for family fun, I even think motocross is a fine sport. I grew up on motorcycles. However, I live one mile from the proposed Paul Thomas Motocross Complex outside Granite Fall on the Mountain Loop Highway and I do not live here so I can listen to seven days a week, nine hours (minimum) a day of motocross.

Thank you for Teen Movie

I would like to express my thanks to Norma and the crew at the Olympic Theater for their hard, extra work to provide us with a special showing of the Freedom Writers.

Adeles irony and VinGinhovens peace

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:03PM

Im not sure Adele Ferguson recognized the irony in the quotes published in her column last week: He not only predicates his policies on rumor, unsupported charges and unscientific reports, but ignores the truth because it could counter his political aspirations, he uses government power for unproven and even fanatical ends and his policies would drain billions from the U.S. for reasons that have nothing to do with science, but a great deal to do with political ambition.

Real ID - under the wire?

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:03PM

Is anyone aware that this is happening? The federal government. in May 2008, is requiring states to completely revamp their drivers licensing guidelines. The guidelines will be dictated by the Homeland Security Department. Some of these guidelines will include having to be fingerprinted, having a retinal eye scan and the actual card having id chips attached to them, holding all this information in a digitized format. The federal government will not recognize your ID without this Real ID card. You will not be able to fly, enter federal buildings, collect Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid and many banks will require you to have it.

Barbara Tolbert for City Council

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:03PM

I was pleased, but not surprised, to see the Arlington Firefighters endorsement of Barbara Tolbert for Arlington City Council Position 3. Arlington would be well served having Barbara on the Council. Barbara Tolbert has been involved and contributing to our community for many years.

Simple majority

I am first a parent of two students who have very successfully navigated their ways through the Arlington School system and benefited tremendously from their experiences.

Breaking Point

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:02PM

The Sunday documentary Breaking Point on the Discovery channel was excellently narrated by Ted Koppel. Those who viewed it had to be as affected as I was by the extreme folly of the waste involved. The mass incarceration in America is such a waste of human life and of the taxpayers money. We incarcerate more people then any other country in the world.

Lovick for sheriff

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:02PM

I am an active member of a local Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. The national body of our church once worked up the fortitude to discuss gay ordination. Of the 100 members present at the national synod, 60 voted for it, 40 against.

Use resources wisely

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:02PM

Imagine for a minute you are the CEO of a large corporation. You have an asset that is underutilized at only about 45 percent of its capacity. Increasing its use by a mere 5 percent would generate well over $100 million in annual revenue and $20 million in local tax revenue with very little investment. And it would provide incredible benefits to your stockholders beyond the revenue it generated.

Thank you

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:02PM

On behalf of the Marysville Community Food Bank and its Board of Directors, I want to extend our deep appreciation to the Snohomish Camano Realtors for all their efforts in conducting a food drive Sept. 14 through Oct. 15. The results were far beyond our expectations, in both food and cash that were contributed.

Still alive and well

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:02PM

In response to the firefighters articles, I would like people to know that I am still alive and well excuse the pun.

Is it the legislature?

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:02PM

Mr. Jim Tagert seems ready to lay every shortcoming of our law enforcement system at the feet of the Washington State Legislature.

Simple Majority

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:02PM

As a parent, a person who writes laws for a living, and as a taxpayer, I urge area voters to approve EHJR (Engrossed House Joint Resolution) 4204 Simple Majorities for Schools.

Proposed village a consolation

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:02PM

I appreciated the Times article on the upcoming transformation of the Graafstra properties (Graafstra Farm to be developed into Haller Point, Oct. 17). Mr. Graafstra deserves a good retirement after decades of very hard work, but it is sad to see the farm go.

Support Lakewood levy

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:02PM

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.

Support our schools

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:02PM

I would like to single out a group of individuals that work relentlessly to increase the quality of life for our young people. The results of their efforts help promote the American Dream in our children and contribute to a variety of other qualities we find desirable in our community.

Delivery Disaster

Sorry to bother you but so far it looks like the Arlington Times delivery system is not working not on Burn Road at least.

40 Days for Life

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:02PM

The annual Washington State March for Life in Olympia took place Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2008 at noon. This event featured legislative speakers who encouraged citizens to continue their efforts defending the unborn through prayer, short speeches and song. March for Life memorializes the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court abortion decision as a horrendous tragedy in American culture.

Fiscally Responsible?

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:02PM

As we face the 2008 legislative session here in Washington state, Im worried.
