Koster & Puget Sound Blood Center drive draws dozens of donors to Smokey Point

  • Mar 19, 2011 at 6:10PM

SMOKEY POINT — Their reasons for giving varied from thoughtful to tongue-in-cheek, but they all rolled up their sleeves to give of themselves, literally. The Puget Sound Blood Center once again teamed up with the Snohomish County Republican Party in Marysville, this time with Snohomish County Council member John Koster as well, to offer a spring blood drive in the Medallion Hotel on March 16, and Hannah Gustafson estimated that the six-hour event had attracted close to 40 donors by the time it was done. "It's our first time in this location, but our third year of doing these donation drives," said Gustafson, of the membership committee of the Snohomish County Republican Party in Marysville, whose offices have served as a site for the Puget Sound Blood Center's collection vehicles during previous donation drives. "We wanted to attract folks from both Marysville and Arlington."

Marysville Special Education PTSA connects parents to community resources

  • Mar 19, 2011 at 9:00PM updated Mar 24, 2011 at 9:08AM

MARYSVILLE — Marysville mom Dani Rice discovered she wasn't alone when her daughter, Morgan, was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome. "It's very common," Rice said. "There are three other people, just on our street, whose kids also have Asperger's." While children with Asperger's syndrome are not rare, Rice has nonetheless found it a bit more rare to find places where she can consult with others about the challenges that are unique to raising a child with this syndrome. Rice and other area parents of children with special needs were able to check out a host of regional resources in a single spot, during the Marysville Special Education PTSA's Resource Fair on March 9. "There's so much that I didn't know," said Rice, whose arms were literally overflowing with books, pamphlets and fliers that she'd collected in the Totem Middle School cafeteria that day. "It can be difficult to navigate the system, but there's so much advocacy here." The resource fair was a first for the Marysville School District, bringing together school district personnel with private service providers and non-profit groups under the same roof, so that parents of special education students could access all the resources available to them locally, at one place and time.

  • Apr 6, 2011 at 8:19AM

This particular customer is a senior executive with a major retailing chain who oversees more than 250 stores in the United States and Canada including a dozen or so in the Puget Sound region. “I can’t get over it,” he told me. “In every store where we have hired people from your employment agency, in-store sales have improved, productivity has improved, morale has improved, and absenteeism has gone down. What’s going on here?”

OPINION | Why do I talk politics if it doesn’t make me happy?

  • Apr 6, 2011 at 8:21AM

Sometimes coffee groups run short of grist for the conversational mill. At least that’s my observation so I lob in a few conversational grenades to pep things up. The effect is the same whether at Haggen’s Café, a table at the YMCA or on the street. Utter “Obama” and certain blood pressures soar. Add Social Security, Medicare, TARP, Tea-Party, Libya, ACORN and Planned Parenthood and I can turn silent assemblies into screaming shout-fests.
