Hibulb hosts child archeologists By Christopher Andersson [email protected] Tulalip and Marysville children got to dig through the sand and touch some archaeological artifacts at the Tulalip Tribe’s Hibulb Cultural Center during Children’s Archaeology Day on July 15. “The Hibulb Cultural Center is hosting this event to have a nice activity for the community and see what we have for education,” said Hibulb Cultural Center museum assistant Cary Williams. There were activities at the cultural center like digging through sand and exercises to simulate the actual experience of uncovering artifacts. “It’s to give them an example of what it would be like to find a site,” Williams said. “They always seem to like the sand box." Bones, antler pieces and other artifacts were also available for kids to see and

touch at the archaeology day. “It’s pretty cool to have artifacts that people can come and see and be hands on with,” Williams said. Educational maps and books were also available at the center for kids to go through as part of the day. Families brought kids to the event for a summer activity. “I just saw it with a flyer in the mail and I wanted to do something with my nephew,” said local resident Beth Williams. “It’s really cool, I wish I would have told all my friends we were going because it’s good for the kids,” said local parent Angela Halsen. Halsen said it was good for her kids to get some Native American culture as it is part of their heritage. “Our tribe is in California so we don’t get See HIBULB on page 2

to participate so it’s really nice that the Tulalip Tribe lets all of us come,” she said. “So we try and participate in the things here as much as we can,” she said. The Archaeology Day program is something the museum usually puts on for visiting kids when they come for a tour. “This is what we use when tours come in,” said Williams. “So we wanted to open that up and have the kids and community participating in it as well,” he said. The cultural center already had the activities and archaeological artifacts, he said, so it is good to provide those opportunities for local kids. “It’s something to add into the calendar for the summertime,” said Williams. There may be additional events with an archaeology theme over the summer and spring, he said. “It’s great for the growing minds and allows you to connect with what it would be like to be an archaeologist,” he said.

five different locations each Wednesday. “We are excited to be able to go around to different stops in Arlington to provide books for kids,” said Jacqueline Arnold, library/technology teacher at Eagle Creek Elementary. The bus stops at the Arlington Boys & Girls Club from 9:10 a.m. to 10:20 a.m., at the Twin Ponds Apartment Complex from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., at Haller Park from 12:20 p.m. to 1:20 p.m., at the High Clover basketball courts from 1:40 p.m. to 2:40 p.m. and at Mobile Estates off of 67th Street from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Students can check out up to three books from the mobile library each week. The books are organized according to the Accelerated Reader program used at the district, so students should be able to grab a book that is right at their level, “or they can stretch a little bit higher,” said Arnold. “There are all different genres, fiction, non-fiction, English and Spanish,” she said. “Some kids ask if they can check out books for their mom or dad that have

Spanish and it’s nice that we can provide that,” she said. Local parent Eba Pantoja said she enjoyed having the multi-language books. “Because it’s in Spanish I can enjoy it with him [her son],” she said. “[Books on the Bus] is good for him because he’s enjoying reading,” she said. Arnold said the program is meant to help keep kids reading during their vacation. “As teachers we know that students that don’t read during the summer tend to lose a lot of the skills that they’ve learned the previous year,” she said. “We’re hoping that by reading each week and being inspired … that they will be able to maintain their skills or even grow,”

she said. Local parent Mirna Hernandez said that the program helped give her daughter something to do. “It’s helpful for them,” she said. Her daughter also enjoyed seeing the bookmobile come around. “She’s excited to see the bus from the program when it comes,” said Hernandez. The bookmobile also helps establish friendships between kids and the libraries at the school, said Arnold. “We’re establishing relationships with families and children who are preschool age or babies,” said Arnold. “We get to connect kids with literature and really meet them one-on-one. We spend a lot of time at some of the stops reading with the kids and having them read with us. It’s good to be able to interact individually with them,” she said. Arnold said this year’s Books on the Bus has been attracting more kids so far. “We’re surpassing our numbers from last summer,” she said. “We’d love to have more kids of course, but we’re really happy with the turnout so far,” she said. The program runs until Aug. 16. Students earn points by returning books to the bus and during the final week they can turn in points at a celebration at their stop to get prizes.

Fireworks incidents reduced over Fourth By Christopher Andersson [email protected] This Fourth of July was the first with a fireworks ban in place for the city of Marysville and the Marysville Fire District and Marysville Police Department reported reduced use. The number of emergency responses because of fireworks was much lower than previous July 4 holiday periods, according to the Marysville Fire District. “We saw a significant drop in calls for service this year,” said Marysville Fire District fire marshal Tom Maloney. From June 24 to July 4, the district responded to 11 fireworks-related incidents, including fire and injuries. “We had one injury which was in Boom City,” said Maloney. The district covers areas outside Marysville city limits as well. Seven of the fireworks incidents were within the city. In past years the city of Marysville area was averaging more than one dozen fireworks-related incidents each year, according

to youth, adults and seniors in the area. “These comprehensive services will include free initial assessments, in-patient care, intensive outpatient services and referrals to community services,” said Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring. Opioid overdose and addiction problems continue to be a problem for the Marysville communities, and across the region and country, he said. “It’s truly an asset that this facility is offering much needed behavioral health and addiction treatment services,” he said. Other mental problems also take a large toll on health resources, he said. In Washington state ,mood disorders, like depression or bi-polar disorder, are the third most common cause of hospitalization for young adults age 18 to 44, and suicide is the second leading cause of

to the district. Public education and information specialist for the fire district Christie Veley wrote that the July 4 holiday falling in the middle of the week may have also been a factor in the decrease. The Marysville police department also used 84 overtime hours to man firework emphasis from June 30 to July 5. “However, patrol officers, specialty assignments were all a part of the emphasis on their regular scheduled shifts,” said commander Mark Thomas of the Marysville Police Department. During that time the department got 246 calls for “bang” complaints. On July 4 the department received 180 of those calls. Thomas said that Marysville police issued a total of 49 tickets during that six-day period and issued 12 warnings. On the Fourth of July, 43 of those tickets were issued and 10 of the warnings were issued. One of the goals of the ban was to make it simpler for local police to issue tickets to lawbreakers.

death for adults age 18 to 34, Nehring said. Despite the impact of mental health problems, the state of Washington is 47th in the country in psychiatric beds per capita. said Snohomish County Councilmember Nate Nehring. “Smokey Point Behavioral Hospital is the only acute care psychiatric hospital in Snohomish County and it’s the first specialized mental health hospital to be built here in 80 years,” he said. Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee said the state needs more investment into mental health treatment. “This facility fulfills an incredible need in the state of Washington,” he said. “We have not had the capacity, or close to the capacity, to provide for the mental health of our citizens and this plugs an enormous gap in this community,” he said. He added that there are capital investments into mental health in this year’s capital budget, but that plan has to get through the state legislature. Inslee said the new

Smokey Point Behavioral Hospital will improve lives for many in the area. “Hundreds of Washingtonians are going to get better because of the Smokey Point Behavioral Hospital,” he said. Matt Crockett, CEO of Smokey Point Behavioral Hospital, said the new hospital will provide a number of treatments. “The healing courtyards and other amenities support our specialized care for mental health and addiction services,” he said. There are specialized treatments for a number of different people. “We will provide specialized programs for women, co-occuring disorders, psychiatric intensive care as well as extra-mile veteran care,” he said. Lourdes Alvarado-Ramos, director of the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs, said there was about 100,000 veterans in the region, about 17 percent of the total veteran population for the state. “We know that the need

Fireworks were determined to be the cause of a fire at this house on 66th Street in Marysville on July 4, 2009. Property loss was estimated at just under $500,000. "The new municipal code adopted by the city certainly made it easier for us to fight fireworks when it was appropriate,” said Thomas. Issuing tickets to those who shot off illegal fireworks in the past required a high bar for officers to meet, said Thomas. "The big difference we had was that fireworks possession was illegal. So before if you turned the corner after the fireworks went is here, for all Washingtonians and for veterans,” she said. Crockett said that there will also be “integrated healing services for Native Americans.” Chairwoman of the Tulalip Tribes Marie Zackuse thanked the hospital officials for their work with

off you couldn't always issue a citation if you didn't see who set the fireworks off,” he said. "This has made it more straightforward for the officers,” he said. Veley wrote that preliminary reports show that the majority of Marysville citizens did adhere to the fireworks ban. The Marysville City Council passed the fireworks ban in early 2016 after a 2015 advisory ballot measure in which 59 percent of voters supported making fireworks illegal. Awareness campaigns of the ban and police efforts could have played roles in reducing this year’s fireworks use and incidents. “We believe that education and enforcement played a role in this as well,” said Maloney. Thomas said that the city ran an aggressive media campaign to get the word out, including on the city’s website, social media, local school reader boards, brochures, email notices to neighborhood groups, newsletter notices and through local newspapers. More information on fireworks rules around the county is available at snohomishcountywa.gov/290/Fireworks.

the tribes. “Your staff has worked with ours and the Tulalip Tribes look forward to a strong and healthy relationship,” she said. “We wanted to make sure that the Tulalip Tribes and other Native Americans in this area will have access to the care they

need,” she said. The new hospital is located in north Marysville, just south of Smokey Point, at 3955 156th St. NE, Marysville. More information about the hospital is available at http://smokeypointbehavioralhospital.com.

Smiles abound at ultimate track camp By Andrew Hines [email protected] With the summer months and warm weather comes the long list of camps for the kids throughout the community. The Marysville Parks and Recreation teamed up with the Lakewood Track and Field Program once again to put on the Ultimate Sports Track and Field Camp, July 13. Every year the four-day event has grown larger and the fun has grown with it. After a year of construction, the camp was back at Lakewood High School. Co-Head Coaches Jeff Sowards and Monica Rooney used their years of experience and some of their volunteer athletes to bring a special opportunity for the young athletes in the area. “The smiles on kid’s faces, them having fun and the parents telling you that this is their kid’s highlight of the summer is amazing to me. I think giving them an opportunity to come out and work with our high school athletes/alumns is a great opportunity. And it is even nicer for me to see my athletes interact with the kids and have them shine while they teach them and have fun,” said Lakewood Head Coach Jeff Sowards.

The Arlington Co-Ed Softball League is off to a hot start as Packin’ Heat took on Whitehorse Saloon on July 12. In the first two innings Packin’ Heat held their own as they scored a total of three runs, and kept the game close by only allowing four runs. However, the rest of the game got away from them as Whitehorse Saloon started heating up at the plate. Through the third and fourth inning Whitehorse managed to put up a daunt-

ing 15 runs while shutting out Packin’ Heat. Through five innings Whitehorse Saloon demolished Packin’ Heat for the victory, with a final score of 19-3. “The sense of community, being out here and having fun is what brings me out here every Summer. I love being with my kids and friends, and I think we play really well as a team like we showed today,” Whitehorse Saloon’s pitcher, George Spady. Spady played a big part in the Whitehorse win as the starting pitcher, allow-

ing three runs over four innings, as well as shining from the plate. He put together two hits, one run and four RBIs. Daunisha Leann and Drake Allen also contributed heavily to their team’s victory as they combined for a monstrous six hits, five runs and seven RBIs. “I just love to play and have that fun atmosphere with all of the guys and ladies. The police and fire department work really well together already, so this is our chance to come out and mingle with each other and the community. Looking at

the rest of the season, we just need to catch and get in some more practice and we’ll be fine,” said Packin’ Heat’s Captain Al Chamberlin. Packin’ Heat had a rough outing but a couple of their top performers included Anthony Davis and Al Chamberlin. Together they combined for a total of three hits and one RBI. If you want to catch a game, the Arlington Co-Ed Softball League will be playing every Wednesday, starting at 6 p.m. on the Twin Rivers Park fields.

Marijuana sellers sponsor kickball tournament By Andrew Hines [email protected] For the first year ever, the local cannabis licensees will be teaming up with the city of Arlington to put on a kickball tournament. The kickball tournament will be held at Quake Park, Arlington, on Saturday July 22, from noon to 4 p.m. “Kickball is just one of those games that we all thought would

be really fun and we’d be able to set up a tournament. It’s an exciting way to raise money for a good cause and it should be a good time,” said Sean O’Leary, Organizer of the Arlington Cannabis Coalition (ACC) and co-founder of Pioneer Nuggets. The purpose of the tournament is to raise money for the new City Flex Fund that aims to help law enforcement and EMS assist drug users in their transition to

treatment. In a lot of cases the city needs funds in order to help in the process of detoxing before admittance to a center. O’Leary was one of the first licensees in the city of Arlington and has been heading up the ACC since its conception in late 2015. Since then they have volunteered a lot of man hours in various projects such as the cleaning of Twin Rivers Park, developing plans for a community garden aimed at do-

nating to the local food bank and are in the process of cleaning up the local library. “We try to reach out to the local community and ask them if there is anything we can do to help out. We have over 200 employees from the 14 licensees in Arlington and even more from some of the other local licensees. So many of us are happy to help with community service, charitable giving and education,” said O’Leary.

Each team that wants to compete will be contributing 100 dollars to the tournament funds, 20 percent of which will be going to the winning team, while the rest will go to the City Flex Fund. If you are interested in signing up a team or want to help in any way you can, email Sean O’Leary at [email protected] You are able to sign up a team until the day of tournament, as long as you bring the paperwork to the event.

Livestock shows mark Silvana Fair By Christopher Andersson [email protected]

The Silvana Fair will return this year for its 70th anniversary on July 29. The fair, held near the Silvana Viking Hall at 1331 Pioneer Way, is an event held early in the season meant for local kids to practice their livestock showing. Parking and the event itself are free of charge. The fair opens up with a flag raising at 9 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m. “It’s our 70th anniversary so we’re trying to do some special things this year,” said Darlene Strotz, a board member on the Silvana Fair Board. Strotz said that the ribbons and pins will be specialized this year to help commemorate the 70th anniversary. It is one of the early fairs of the summer, with constructive judges, said Strotz. “It’s the first fair of the season,” she said, “and we try and bring animal judges that will help the kids.” The goal is to help give

constructive feedback. “They’re very helpful and try to give advice to help the kids improve, so at that next fair they will hopefully have more information and practice and they can compete at a higher level,” said Strotz. A number of different animals are shown at the event, including goats, cattle, poultry, sheep, rabbits and pigs. The livestock showings are all around the fair, and inside the Viking Hall are set up a number of exhibits for flowers, vegetables, arts and crafts. “You can walk in there and mosey around to see all the inside exhibits,” said Strotz. Kid's activities begin around 9 a.m. “We try to get a couple activities for the kids each year,” said Strotz, including activities this year like a three-legged race or a money scramble in the hay for smaller children. A new band, One Way Train, will also be playing at the fair from noon to 1 p.m.

There is “lots of good food” available from vendors at the fair as well. Strotz said that everyone is supportive at the fair and people like the casual, community atmosphere of the Silvana Fair. “People like the idea that it is not as commercial,” she said. It is a very “low key fair” that has a different atmosphere than some of the bigger fairs in the state, she said. Strotz said she likes all the community that comes out to the event every year. “I like to see all the people that are out at the event,” she said. “It’s just a very fun time for everyone.” The free fair is put on by an all-volunteer staff. “The whole community steps up to put it on,” said Strotz. “Every year we have many people from the community work for the week before putting it together,” she said. More information about the Silvana Fair is available at silvanafair.com.

Marysville Value Village fire suspect arrested The suspect in the Value Village fire that occurred in the early morning hours of July 2 turned himself into investigators at the Marysville Police Department. The suspect, a 36-yearold Marysville man, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for a felony charge of Reckless Burning First Degree. In the early morning hours of July 2, a witness rode his bicycle the two blocks to the Marysville Public Safety building to report that he saw flames coming from the back side of the Value Village Thrift Store located at 1334 State Ave. Police and fire personnel responded to the fire, which caused approximately $500,000 in damage. Marysville investigators working with the Fire Marshal’s office began working on the cause and origin investigation that night. In an unrelated burglary investigation, detectives from the North Snohomish County Property Crimes Unit uncovered information as to a suspect in the Value Village fire. During an interview July 6 associated with the burglary investigation, the suspect made admissions to his role in the Value Village fire. Because of the ongoing investigations with both the

burglary and fire, no arrest was made at that time. When the suspect was contacted about coming back in for a follow-up interview, he turned himself in on July 12. During the follow-up interview, the suspect stated he was attempting to look

inside of the trailer when he used a lighter to look inside.  Some clothing was near the door and it caught on fire. Unrelated additional Burglary and Possession of Stolen Property charges are also pending.

Creating your natural first-aid kit

With summer in full swing and the sun out you might be noticing a few different ailments we don’t see in other times of the year like bug bites, dehydration and sun burns. We also tend to get more active in the summer which can lead to sore muscles, bumps and bruises. Before you reach for your first aid kit try adding some items to your natural first aid kit. Sun Protection: We hear a lot of conflicting information on sun screen. Some are said to be healthy, some full of cancercausing chemicals. If you are unsure, then buying a more natural cream is best. Prepping for summer or a sunny vacation can be done in the kitchen too. Many fruits and veggies such as citrus fruits, carrots and green tea can boost your skins ability to stay protected from the sun. You can also avoid the sun screen when possible by wearing sun hats and sun clothing and taking shady

breaks from the direct sun. Sun Burns: Sometimes a sun burn is unavoidable. If you do get burned first start by increasing your water intake, remember we have literally burned our skin. To treat the burn itself try some witch hazel on a cotton round or cloth to smooth over the skin. Apple cider vinegar, plain yogurt and of course traditional aloe vera gel are all good options as well. Bug Bites: Stop scratching. It’s hard, but scratching the bites can

cause bacteria to get into other bites and lead to infection. A great solution is tea tree oil. Tea tree oil can take the sting out of the bite. You can also use tea tree oil in your shampoo to clarify and tone as well as a foot bath to get your toes ready for summer. Using witch hazel is another great solution for bug bites. The herb Plantain is a good remedy for Poison Ivy or scrapes as well. You can mix it with some water and put right on the bite or rash. Scrapes, Burns or Cuts: Calendula cream is great for a burn and to promote healing. You can buy it in cream form and put it on scrapes, burns and cuts. Colloidal silver is a great option to use on cuts or scrapes that need healing. You can also drop it in the eye to alleviate sore or red eyes. If you have a cut or are bleeding, the herb Yarrow is a good to help stop the bleeding. Use it with some water or in an ointment directly on the cut. You can also

mix it in a bath to treat multiple cuts and scrapes. Sore Muscles: Arnica is a good solution for inflammation if you sprain an ankle, get a bump or bruise or have muscle pain after a long summer hike. If you have a small bruise rub some cream on it, but if you have more inflammation take it in the pellet form (small pills) also. Hopefully you can add a few

Board selects Dr. Beattly as Health Officer Following a lengthy recruitment process, the Board of Health unanimously approved an employment agreement with Dr. Mark Beatty to serve as the Snohomish Health District’s next health officer. The selection of Dr. Beatty came after interviews with nine other candidates over the last six months.  “This was a long process and we interviewed a number of well qualified physicians, but our patience paid off,” said Adrienne FraleyMonillas, current chair of the Board of Health. “Dr. Beatty has an exceptional

mix of education, global experience and passion for public health work.” Dr. Beatty’s interest in public health began in medical school at the University of Connecticut, when a summer research project took him to Haiti, followed by a medical relief mission in Honduras during his residency. He joined the U.S. Public Health Service in 1998, serving in a remote Navajo Nation hospital in Crownpoint, New Mexico. After two years, Dr. Beatty left to start as an Epidemic Intelligence Service officer with the Cen-

ters for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). During his time with the CDC, his work included a cholera outbreak in the Marshall Islands, antibiotic resistance in Kenya, the 2001 anthrax response, and dengue fever surveillance in Puerto Rico. Dr. Beatty also completed a preventive medicine residency program with the CDC — including a year at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene working on program assessment, management, and training in HIV, tuberculosis

A NEW CHAPTER IN MY LIFE “When the time came for me to move into a group living situation, I confess, I was apprehensive. In the past, I had visit retirement homes where the living conditions seemed cramped and sterile. Then I found Windsor Square. I was delighted with its overall appearance. The building and its grounds were pleasant looking. The interior was pristine. Colors were soft and pleasing to the eye; the carpets clean and soft under my feet. But it was the apartments, yes, apartments, not just rooms, that impressed me most. They were generous and had a pleasant homey feel about them. And there is a housekeeping service that washes and changes my bedding, and cleans my new home like professionals. The staff are friendly and the same was true of the residents. I was warmly greeted by all that I met and the same ambiance prevailed after I moved in. And the food; it has been very good with evidence of creativity by the chef. There is a widely-varied menu with pleasant surprises every now and then. The courtyard is big and well landscaped, providing a pleasant place to stroll with family or new found friends. I can genuinely say that I am glad that I discovered Windsor Square.” -Chuck W.

and emergency management. At the conclusion of that program, he attended Johns Hopkins University’s School of Public Health in Baltimore to earn a master in public health. Since leaving the CDC in 2006, Dr. Beatty worked for the International Vaccine Institute in South Korea, as well as conducting clinical development work on new influenza vaccines at Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics. He also returned briefly to the CDC to coordinate all activities in Saudi Arabia, including training local physicians in field epidemiology. Dr. Beatty is currently a freelance epidemiology consultant and instructor residing in Seoul, South Korea. “I did my pediatrics

residency at Oregon Health and Science University,” said Beatty. “My family and I are very glad to be coming home to the Pacific Northwest.”  The position had previously been a combined health officer/director role, however the Board approved a charter amendment in December 2016 that separated the duties into two separate positions effective March 31. Jefferson Ketchel was appointed as interim administrator in April, and Dr. Gary Goldbaum retired as health officer in May. The Health District has been contracting with Dr. Chris Spitters as the interim health officer following Dr. Goldbaum’s retirement.  The Snohomish Health

STD rates increase in Snohomish County More than two-fold increase in STD rates in county in five years By Christopher Andersson [email protected] The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently estimated that there are nearly 20 million new sexually transmitted infections every year in this country. Given these large numbers—and increased cases being reported locally—the Snohomish Health District started pulling together data earlier this year to take a closer look. When looking at reported cases of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) from 2011-2016, Snohomish County has had a 40 percent increase in chlamydia, a 112 percent increase in syphilis, and a 243 percent increase in gonorrhea. “These increases in STD rates are not unique to Snohomish County, but we only have four disease investigators available to serve a county with close to 800,000 people,” said Jefferson Ketchel, interim administrator for the Health Dis-

Whitaker re-appointed to Marysville Planning Commission The Marysville City Council July 10 confirmed the reappointment of Brandon Whitaker to a six-year term on the Marysville Planning Commission. Mayor Jon Nehring recommended the reappointment. A project manager for the Port of Everett, Whitaker was first appointed last year to complete an unfilled term on the Planning Commission. He is a graduate of MarysvillePilchuck High School and holds a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Policy and Planning from Western Washington University. The seven-member Planning Commission serves as an advisory board to the Mayor and City Council on land use issues. The Commission meets at 7 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at Marysville City Hall, 1049 State Ave. For more information, visit http://marysvillewa. gov/PlanningCommission.

trict. “Decreasing resources and increasing populations mean we really are in a response-only mode right now.” In addition to a breakdown of cases by city and type, the data was segmented by demographics to help pinpoint populations most impacted. Some of the highlights included in the report: • Chlamydia cases were predominantly younger adults, with 68 percent of the female cases being 1524 years old and 83 percent of the male cases were 15-34 years old. • While chlamydia rates among females were double those of males in 2016 (436 vs. 217.7 per 100,000), rates of gonorrhea infections are higher in males for the same time period (96.4 vs. 60.1 per 100,000). • Among adults 25-34 years old, there was a 395 percent increase in gonorrhea infections for males and 314 percent increase in females from 2012 to 2016. For the same time period among adults 35-44 years old, there was a 207 percent increase for males and 1,017

percent increase for females with gonorrhea. • When looking at syphilis, 80 percent of the cases were men who have sex with men. • Those identified as multiracial, Hispanic or Latino represented 32 percent of all syphilis cases, with the Hispanic or Latino population seeing a 174 percent increase in infections from 2012 to 2016. The briefing report not only provided a baseline of data to use moving forward, but it also evaluated roles of the Health District and community partners currently in practice and areas for increased attention. Strategic areas of focus are: • Expanding access to Expedited Partner Therapy (EPT) in the community, allowing some individuals diagnosed with chlamydia or gonorrhea to obtain medications for his or her sexual partner(s) to prevent reinfection without a separate examination. • Increasing outreach and education to the community, as well as to providers and community partners who have contact

Data collected by the Snohomish Health District show that the rates of sexually transmitted diseases has increased significantly over the past five years. with target populations, like schools, colleges, youth clubs and cultural groups. • Improving case followup and enhancing data collected through more collaboration between providers and Health District staff. “The new operating budget approved by the legislature provides a small down payment for essential public health services,”

said Ketchel. “Unless there’s a significant restoration of public health funding, we will continue to struggle to stay ahead of the problem, let alone turn the tide on disease rates like these.” STDs are most commonly spread through anal, oral or vaginal sex. However, some STDs like hepatitis B and HIV can be transmitted through blood-

to-blood contact by sharing needles or equipment to inject drugs. Pregnant women with STDs may also pass their infections to their babies during pregnancy, delivery or through breastfeeding. See www.snohd.org/Diseases-Risks/Sexually-Transmitted-Diseases for more information and resources.

Opinion

July 19, 2017 - July 25, 2017 NORTH COUNTY OUTLOOK

n GUEST OPINION

Legislature helps schools Upon becoming a school board member, there are several things that happen, one of which is becoming a member of the Washington State School Directors Association (WSSDA). This organization works to further the education of school board members, and promote the legislation of school boards across the state on behalf of their local citizens, families, students, staff and teachers. Each local school board has a legislative representative which represents the District to the WSSDA Association. A convention is then held annually where the representatives from each district put forth their concerns and WSSDA staff puts them into one of four categories: Teaching, Governance, Funding and Allocation, and Learning. Their concerns are prioritized and developed into legislative proposals. Then, WSSDA staff and school board members work with legislators in the State Capitol to help pass legislation that supports the learning and opportunities for students across our state. This past legislative session, there were more than 300 bills related to education with only 34 that passed the House and Senate and were signed into law by Governor Jay Inslee. These bills covered everything from sunscreen application at school, to the Supreme Court’s 2012 McCleary decision, which said the state was failing to meet its constitutional requirement to fully fund basic education. After three additional special sessions that each lasted 30 days, the Legislature came to an agreement that will add

Dr. Becky Berg $7.3 billion to public schools over the next four years. This additional funding will come from an increase in the statewide property tax. The plan also keeps in place local property-tax levies but restricts them to a lower amount beginning in 2019. It also requires that local taxes be used only for programs that supplement basic education. The additional funding from the state, and the new requirement on local property taxes means that school districts will not have to ask their local taxpayers to fund basic education needs. Instead, communities can focus on what more we can do to specifically support our local students and schools. The hope is that all students have the same opportunities and are treated equitably, regardless of where they live in Washington state. In addition to providing more funding to public education, the legislature passed House Bill 2224, which provides flexibility and supports student success by delaying the requirement of meeting the high-stakes science assessments standards to graduate until the class of 2021. The board and I also agree that high-stakes testing attached to graduation is bad for students. Board President

Pete Lundberg said it perfectly in his March 11 Marysville Globe article titled, “Disconnect state test, graduation.” In it he states, “All learners are different, have varied skills, learning styles and abilities. They learn in different ways, at varied rates and times. Attaching graduation to one test, given on one day, at one time, in one way, does not allow for individual differences.”  We are thankful to the legislature for passing HB 2224, but there is still work to be done to ensure each student is able to demonstrate their learning in a way that recognizes their individual differences. This past legislative session brought forth many other pieces of legislation intended to improve the life and learning of students across our state and region – some that passed and some that did not pass. We are thankful for the hard work of our local legislators, Senator John McCoy and Representatives Mike Sells and June Robinson for their diligent work on behalf of the Marysville-Tulalip community and our students. We are also thankful to the unions, associations and other individuals who have a vested interest in our students’ welfare and continue to fight so that every student has the opportunities needed to achieve. As we approach a new school year, please let members of the Marysville School Board know what ideas you have for improving education in Washington state and here in Marysville and Tulalip. Meaningful change happens when we all work together to make a difference for our students. We look forward to hearing your thoughts.

RAVE RANT: This Fourth of July the noise was so bad from June 16 to July 10. I live by Jennings Park and even today, July 10, firecrackers are still going off. It is heartbreaking to see my dog I rescued is still afraid to go outside. I could endure three or four days, but this is to long. RAVE: Thanks to all of those who made Arlington such a great place to be with so many community events this summer. There was the Smokey Point Carnival, the

Fourth of July celebration, the Arlington Fly-In, the Street Fair, and the free movies and concerts. Now I'm looking forward to the Stillaguamish Tribe's Festival of the River in August. It takes a lot of work and many dedicated volunteers to make these great events happen every year, and we're lucky to call Arlington home. RAVE: Don't forget to vote in the Aug. 1 primary. There are a number of local races and the EMS Levy on the ballot. Please Vote.

Sno-Isle provides prep for upcoming eclipse By Christopher Andersson [email protected] In preparation of the Aug. 21 solar eclipse the Sno-Isle Libraries is offering astronomy and eclipse classes for children in both the Arlington and Marysville libraries. Marysville’s class is coming on July 29 and Arlington’s is on Aug. 11. The Aug. 21 solar eclipse will be the first total solar eclipse in America since 1979. The sun will be completely covered in parts of Oregon, while most of Washington state will receive around 90 percent coverage at the eclipse’s peak. Classes at the Sno-Isle Libraries will help teach local kids about the eclipse. “This is an opportunity that is pretty rare and so to connect that occurrence with an educational piece is just an awesome way to go,” said Jim Hills, public information manager for the Sno-Isle Libraries. The classes are part of the Explore Summer program that the library system puts on, which provide interactive classes around STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects. “We put it on every year during the summer,” said Hills, “to attract students who are out of school on vacation, so

Roger and Linda Kennedy, who are a retired science teacher and librarian respectively, will lead the class about astronomy. They will also provide free eclipse glasses. The New Mexico-based couple travel in a program for NASA to present classes about the sun. “They actually travel around the country all the time to talk about the sun, not just now. Although now they’re obviously focusing on the

eclipse,” said Hills. Roger and Linda will bring their telescopes and other equipment to the class to demonstrate some astronomy. The provided glasses will help kids see the eclipse better. “The really fun part is the kids’ glasses,” said Hills. “They are made out of cardboard but they also have a film, so kids will be able to look at the sun and see some of the features you wouldn’t normally be able to without looking directly at the sun, which you shouldn’t do,” said Hills.

Kevin Manning, a former NASA consultant and longtime astronomer who travels the country, will talk about how scientists measure great distances in space and how objects in space move. The class will be at 8:30 p.m. on Aug. 11 at Twin Rivers Park off of State Route 530. There will be telescopes set up by Manning at the night-time class so that students will be able to view sights such as the rings of Saturn and the craters of the moon. “That will be interesting to look at the stars at the park at night,” said Hills.

Dogs have their day at Asbery Field By Christopher Andersson [email protected] Puget Sound dog lovers could find a day just for them and their dog at Marysville's 11th annual Poochapalooza on July 8. The event is put on by the Marysville Dog Owner's Group (M-DOG) and is meant to bring together a number of dog organizations and pet owners across Western Washington. One of the organizers of the event, Doug Buell, said this year's event went well. "It's fantastic. It's been nonstop people and dogs all day," he said. Buell said the event is all for the pets themselves. "It's all about the dogs. The people can come here and show off their dogs," he said. "It's great for us to share our love of dogs with other people and give dogs a day out they deserve," he said. The reason dog parks are popular is because dogs tend to enjoy all that interaction, he said. "Dogs are so social and you see that when you're here," he said. Dog-owner Judy Jones said she liked the event. "It's great, we've had fun," she said. "I've learned a lot and my dogs got to meet with other dogs and social-

ize with people, so that's great," she said. Poochapalooza hosts a number of contests, competitions and demonstrations. "The wiener dog races were a big hit this morning and the pie eating contest was over by far and away the fastest of any I've seen. The dogs within two or three seconds were done," said Buell. Buell said he enjoys the events when they get good turnout and ordinary dogs get a chance to compete. "I like any of our contests or demonstrations that are interactive. I like the events we do to allow the dogs to come and try it themselves," he said. Dog-owner Erin Smidt said she drove from the Olympic peninsula this year to make it to the event. "It's awesome. I wanted to go last year but couldn't make it," she said. She said she enjoyed some of the demonstrations that her dog participated in. "Definitely the barn hunt. It's a newer AKC [American Kennel Club] sport that I think a lot of dog owners aren't aware of yet and most dogs could be really good at it," she said. Smidt also said she enjoyed seeing rescue organizations at the event.

"We like bringing in the non-profits," said Buell. "They come back every year so they do seem to like it," he said. Organizations like Old Dog Haven or The NOAH Center in Stanwood bring booths to the event and walk dogs in the Doggy Fashion Show, which shows off adoptable pets. Funds raised at the event help go to M-DOG projects. "The big emphasis this year is getting the dog park

fence [at Strawberry Fields in Marysville] replaced," said Buell. "It looks better than it really is, because if you start shaking it you can see all these posts are broken up from the ground and the only thing holding them up is tall grass," he said.

Arlington transportation plan paves way for regional transportation funding By Sarah Arney [email protected] A public hearing was scheduled this Monday on the annual update of the city’s six-year Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP). The plan is important because any road project must be listed on the plan to be eligible for state or federal funding from the Puget Sound Regional Council. At last week’s workshop meeting Public Works Director Jim Kelly explained the plan with projections for funding and construction for various projects. He then requested a vote after the public hearing this Monday so that a deadline for a grant application could be met. Council member Jan Schuette asked about timing for a proposed roundabout

at Olympic Place at 204th Street NE, considering the new apartment complex currently in construction south of 204th Street. The roundabout is not funded at this time, but the city has funds for the Arlington Valley Road, connecting 204th to 188th through an industrial zone. Construction of that road is planned for next year. After discussion at last week’s workshop meeting, three items were approved for the consent agenda, including a mural by Erika Bruss portraying an owl on the exterior wall of the restroom building in Terrace Park and five art cows for

Pet Lindsay

Jensen Park. Both projects were proposed by Arlington Arts Council. Council was also expected to approve the final acceptance of the Haller Park restroom project and renovations at Quake Field. At last week’s workshop meeting, Mayor Barb Tolbert and City Administrator Paul Ellis asked council members their thoughts on the potential formation of a Regional Fire Authority with the city of Marysville and Fire District 12, after hearing more about the factors involved from the RFA Planning Committee recently. The goal is to find a more

sustainable, (i.e. affordable) fire/EMS system that meets the needs of each city’s residents and communities. Benefits include eliminating redundancy in the Smokey Point area for cost savings. Challenges include management of the RFA. Would it be based on equal repre-

sentation of proportional governance? If the RFA were funded by a levy, it would remove pressure from the city’s general fund, Councilman Chris Raezer noted. “We have to do something,” Councilwoman Deborah Nelson said.

Council membersseemed to agree. “It would be a new tax,” Marilyn Oertle said. “It might be a hard sell.” Mayor Tolbert asked council members to consider the values and principles that should guide the decision.

homeowners can achieve the same effect by using a variety of plants that have the same overall look. I find that bold foliage repeated every 4 to 6 feet (or more if you have a large area) keeps my eye moving through the design. In between that bold foliage I will cram an assortment of finer textures, until everything is touching and overlaying on its neighbors (gaps or open soil is a no no). If the bed is deep enough, I will do the same thing behind the front row with those plants spilling over and into that area, so that it looks like there are “layers” of vegetation. The result of this style is a more natural looking landscape that contains a rich variety of plants (with often four seasons of interest). They all combine

together to form a composition that is interesting to the eye yet uncluttered, with just enough repetition to hold it all together. It’s a known fact that the worst person to ask for landscape design advice is a nursery owner and for good reason; they want to sell you one of every plant on the property. While this would normally be a recipe for disaster, I am convinced that by using the “layering” concept and spacing out the bold foliaged plants, anyone can assemble an attractive landscape. Granted it will take a little more finesse, but it is totally doable. For those of us that want it all, this is the best of both worlds: lots of plants and a good looking yard. As a bonus, the fun part comes as things grow and we

Some things will need to be tamed, while others will need some encouragement, and eventually some will even need to be replaced, which is always a happy occasion for the gardener because you get to take a trip to the gar-

den center and find some new treasures. If you would like to see some examples of “layering” feel free to explore my garden anytime.
