We would like to take this time to praise and give thanks for all the prayers, support, donations and ongoing efforts to help the family of Bryan Walden. For those who don’t know Bryan or hadn’t heard of his accident, he was topping a tree on his property when something dreadful went wrong. He fell about 25 feet with the ladder and tree landing on top of him.
After purchasing several products as gifts from a well-known Arlington business, our family member (the recipient) found that one of the items didn’t fit. She and her partner, with receipt in hand, entered the business and kindly requested to do an exchange. They were met with skepticism and a less than cordial attitude. They live out of the area and are not your “typical” couple.
Offensive! That is what Suzan DelBene’s latest television ad was to me. First, because of the internet and all sorts of editing programs, she was able to insert her opponent, John Koster, holding “yes” and “no” signs as if in answer to what she perceives are women’s rights.
On behalf of the Arlington Community Food Bank we would like to thank the Stillaguamish Tribe, Arlington Hardware & Lumber, city of Arlington, Wal-Mart and the greater Arlington community for their very generous donations to the Food Bank capital building fund. Soon you will see the ground breaking for the new building. We have to vacate our current facility by Jan.1, 2013, so time is of the essence.
In order to fully understand the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Affordable Health Care Act, one has to understand what the Supreme Court actually is authorized to do under the Constitution. It is only authorized to rule on the “constitutionality” of anything brought before it.
We are writing today to urge voters in the Lakewood School District to vote “YES” on April 17 for the Replacement School Programs and Operation Levy and the Capital Projects and Technology Levy.
Those of us at the Arlington Food Bank wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to all the organizations who were involved in helping us with our holiday food drive. It was with the assistance of those in the Arlington and Lakewood School Districts and the Arlington Fire Department’s Santa Run, along with considerable support from the food drives at our local grocery stores, that we received substantial food donations which made the holiday food drive a huge success. Overall, our community enabled us to assist more than 300 families for this past holiday season. Your kindness helped so many who have so little.
As a former Finance Director of the Arlington School District and prior Mayor of Arlington I would like to take this opportunity to remind our Arlington School District citizens that on Tuesday, February 14th a Replacement 4-Year Maintenance and Operations Levy will be on the election ballot. The current four-Year M & O levy will expire at the end of this year.
On Feb. 14, we will ask you, the voter, to approve a School Programs and Operation Levy (formerly called a M&O Levy) for the Arlington School District.
I would like to thank everyone who helped American Legion Post 76 Toys For Kids raise money throughout the year to help purchase Christmas gifts for the less fortunate children in the Arlington area.
The outrage over the recent incidents of child abuse at two major, high profile university athletic departments continues to fill the national print and electronic media.
I have been a member of the Lakewood School District community for over 30 years, as a resident, a taxpayer, a parent of two Lakewood graduates and one child to begin school at Lakewood in the fall. I have had the privilege of being a teacher and librarian for Lakewood School District since 1977. This is my community, my home, and I love living and working here. This fall I have been reminded that Lakewood is a great place by community participation in several venues.
Barb Tolbert’s vision and passion for the city of Arlington make her the obvious choice as our next Mayor.
As the citizens of the city of Arlington begin to make their decision for who our next Mayor should be and what attributes we would like to see, perhaps we should consider the ones we don’t.
I first met Jim Rankin after he had been selected to serve as our Fire Chief here in Arlington.
There are several very important choices on the general election ballot this year that need special consideration. One of them is for the “at-large position” for Arlington City Council.
This letter is an enthusiastic endorsement of Dr. Jeff Huleatt for the Arlington School Board. During the 30-plus years I worked in public education, I have known hundreds of school board members. Jeff Huleatt is one of the very best.
The Arlington Police Officer’s Association has voted to endorse Barb Tolbert’s candidacy for the position of Mayor in the city of Arlington. Our Association has never before endorsed a political candidate for a local city office. We have chosen to support Barb because our city needs the kind of forward-thinking, strong leadership that Barb uniquely brings to the table.
In her capacity as Executive Director of the annual Arlington Fly-In, Barbara Tolbert has shown her organizational skills as well as her dedication and devotion to Arlington. What many may not know is how involved this lady is in a myriad of volunteer efforts throughout this community — President, Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation; board of the Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce and Lions Club. Past service includes the Arlington School District Facilities Committee; Director, Snohomish County Tourism Board; and recently Chair of the EMS levy committee to ensure Emergency Medical Services to our community for the future.
Arlington Fire Fighters Local 3728 is proud to endorse Barb Tolbert for Mayor of Arlington. We are honored to stand with a candidate who has given so much time and leadership to our department.
