A thanks to the community for breast cancer support
Thank you for advertising our recent garage sale/fundraiser on May 21 and 22. Two of our employees are participating in the Susan G. Komen “3 Day for the Cure” breast cancer walk. All of the proceeds from our sale are sponsoring Theresa Borst and Kristen Post for the upcoming walk in September. The generosity of the Lake Stevens community was outstanding. Over both days we raised a total of $2,200 and we’re thankful for everyone’s donations. We would like to have a second sale in the future to hopefully raise more money for the breast cancer foundation. To follow our team progress and to encourage us as we walk 60 miles please check out the Susan G. Komen link at http://ww5.komen.org/ and type in our team name Gail Marie. All of your support, prayers and donations are greatly appreciated. This is in honor of our family member who was unfortunately diagnosed with breast cancer this past year. We continue to walk and raise money because no woman should have to go through what Gail Marie has. This is for all the women in the world in hopes there will be a cure found. Special thanks to the Lake Stevens Journal for advertising our event.

Legislative session a complete waste of time Dear Editor,
The State Legislature was a complete failure this session, instead of doing the right thing and fully funding education they are sticking it to the citizens again. The primary priority of the state is education and should never be cut, but the legislature says wasteful spending and pet projects are more important. Five school districts in the county will put new levies on the ballots, Marysville and Granite Falls being two of them. I see the legislature passed a bill that lifted the ceiling on local property tax levies by four percentage points, what a shock. The legislature has put it on the local communities to pay more to continue education services as is instead of doing their jobs. They cried about their $3 billion deficit but rose spending; they seemed to have forgotten to raise education spending. Primaries are approaching; ask your local representatives how they voted on the current budget and remember that when you fill out your ballots, both primary and general election times.
