Oh yes, the silver linning

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:34PM

Okay everybody, let's all chime in together in four-part harmony and sing the praises of our delightful spring weather. Hasn't it been just glorious, the weeks after blessed weeks of non-stop precipitation and perpetual overcast? Just when I think it is finally going to warm up an be nice we get another cold front blowing in, the daytime temps drop down to the low 40s and the nights border on freezing. Let me tell you, while this is hard on the plants, it is murder on the gardeners.

Throw open the windows. Spring is here.

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:48PM

Change is in the air. In spite of the soggy weather activity is picking up at the Ebey Slough Boat Launch. Coatless children shiver at school bus stops, hoping the clouds will part. Truckers off-load racks of bedding plants and hanging baskets at Freddy's and Wal-Mart. Given the growth-rate of lawns, it's a good thing that skiing is on the wane because spring chores can claim all the outdoor time householders have to spare.

Day of Remembrance honors victims of Holocaust

"If you saw a fanatical mob pillage and burn a church or synagogue you would not stand silent..."

Focus on learning math, not on the test

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:48PM

Unfortunately, the education debate in Olympia these days is more about tubing the WASL (Washington Assessment of Student Learning) than about learning and teaching.

Banking blues

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:48PM

Since I have most of my money in Washington Mutual Bank, every time I see a WaMu headline in the newspapers, I read the article under it very carefully.

"More" government Arlington

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:42PM

Mr. Hendrickson in his opinion seems concerned with how government seems to grow with the democrats in office. I don't claim to be educated in the vagaries of politics as he seems to be. However, I am a citizen and as such I have noticed that while the republicans indeed do try to shrink government, invariably the spending of that "smaller" government seems to increase. The deficit increases and large businesses seem to thrive.

Bikini barista Arlington

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:42PM

I got a "jolt" from a local espresso stand today and it wasn't from the caffeine in the coffee.

Personal value Arlington

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:42PM

We believe the Arlington community needs to vote Yes in May to support the construction of a new library. Arlington has grown a lot since the existing library was built and it is too small to offer all the services required by the volume of children, students, adults and seniors who access the library.

Need to make changes Arlington

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:42PM

'It was amusing and not surprising' to see that there are still a few people living in Arlington that do not believe that the most recent trend in global warming is neither dangerous nor is it caused by humans. I, myself, was skeptical at first until I looked into the new research.

PAC Arlington

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:42PM

I don't know who Steve Stav is, or more specifically if he has a personal vendetta against Cindy Huleatt, the theater manager of the Byrnes Performing Arts Center.

Build a resource Arlington

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:42PM

We have the opportunity to build a resource for our children, our parents, ourselves. I'm talking about the request to build a new public library one that will provide enough space for fun, educational programs; more room for computers so that students can do their homework; more space for books, magazines, videos and CDs, and more reference materials (yes, there are still many of us who prefer to actually hold a book in our hands when we're looking for answers or to copy a pattern or recipe from a book rather than spending time on line).

Thank you foster parents Marysville

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:41PM

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

Times needs balance Arlington

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:41PM

The political views repeatedly expressed by your regular columnist Adele Ferguson, while welcome, are arguably not shared by at least half of your readership. Would it not be fair that her column space be equally shard by someone with an opposing viewpoint? In this critical election year, it is we the people who must make an informed decision about who will best work for us in these difficult times we face as a nation. Being subjected to only one biased viewpoint from an obvious fig-leaf partisan hack does not serve the best interest of our democracy. Please, let's have a more open dialogue of the issues. After all, we have nothing to lose but our democracy itself.

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.

Baseball's win caps busy week.

  • Apr 9, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:21PM
