Thanks for supporting NLMS band
On behalf of the North Lake Middle School music students and their teacher Melissa Gamage, we would like to thank our community for their support with our fourth annual Music Booster Lasagna Dinner Fundraiser.
While over 650 parents, siblings, grandparents and family friends enjoyed a delicious lasagna dinner, the band and choir students from both the 6th and 7th grade classes entertained all.

Police, Fire thanks for keeping town safe
I would like to thank the police and fire departments for all their sacrifice. After my family and I arrived at the Eastlake vs. Lake Stevens football game on Saturday, Nov. 19 I realized that someone had to stay home.
I think the only people left in Lake Stevens were a couple of crickets, the police, and fire departments.

Possible motive behind timing of Reardon allegations
During the recent campaign for County Executive, candidate Mike Hope put the ethics of the Executive’s office into question. The only retort from Aaron Reardon’s office was a smear campaign against Mr. Hope but now we have more allegations against Mr. Reardon.
I now question all of the timing.
County Council President Dave Somers, brought the case to County Prosecutor Mark Roe after an employee mentioned it to him (Somers) but not in time to have a real effect on the election or to let the voters see the facts.
If the charges are found substantiated and Aaron Reardon steps down, then a new executive will be chosen by the county council and I wonder if Councilman Somers will put his hat in the ring for that job?
It is no secret that Councilman Somers rarely sees eye-to-eye with the Executive and I believe he would love that position and it appears he may have a great way in.
