Lake StevensJournaI June 1, 2011 Page 3 First Responders event a success because of many Dear Editor, Lake Stevens’ very first National Thank You Day to Honor first Responders was a success with plenty of room to grow in the coming years. None of it could have occurred how- ever, without some very important help. Our city is so fortunate to have such a community newspaper. With the Jour- nal’s help, word spread and assistance appeared. We’re also lucky to have a community- minded printer. Foster Press helped again and again to get signs and flyers out the door. Early on, Mayor Vern Little placed himself and the city firmly behind the project. This culminated in a proclama- tion which he delivered at the ThankYou event on May 19. Stepping up to the plate, The Family Center’s Kathleen Friend provided in— valuable help in getting the word out and cards and banners in. It was great fun posting the cards onto tri—folds which then were presented to each police, fire and rescue station. Aquafestfs own John Personnius posted Thank You signs all over down— town and Frontier Village areas so that first responders would see the message, * Send us your letters»; Tell uSwh'at ison your. mind ‘ - i news@lakestevensjwrnalcom . ._ ’ all week long. Police and fire even helped. When Laana Larson heard of the project, the Fire Conference Center was graciously offered for our event, and Julie Ubert created a fabulous PowerPoint display that played continuously through the evening. Meribeth Hutchings, Windermere Real Estate, donated the decorating talents of her staff Stacy Rysemus who turned a huge empty room into a festive, warm atmosphere. Kelli Lynn, Event Coordinator photo- graphed everyone and made clean-up a snap aided by two officers and Wilma Daniels. From a financial standpoint, it took some big help to pay for signs and while we still expect some donations, the fol- lowing people are heartfully thanked: Dr. Gaddis, Ricardo Pruneda, Dr. Tracy DeLorm, Keith Akins (State Farm), Ace Hardware, Mike Liberato, Joyce Bell, Tom Thumb Grocery and Wells Fargo Bank. Thank you all for helping to say “Thank You to honor Lake Stevens’ first Responders”! See you next year!

Due to her Senator Hobbs’ Park and Ride bill signed into law , JOURNAL STAFF. Legislation which will create public- private partnerships at many of the state’s park and ride locations was signed into law last week. Senate Bill 5791, sponsored by Sen. Steve Hobbs, D-Lake Stevens, will clear the way for local transit agencies to be- gin contracting with private vendors to provide services. such as coffee stands, small restaurants, grocery stores and other'conveniences at many of the state’s more than 270 park and ride locations. ‘ “Not only will this idea better serve commuters, it provides an outside-the- box-method' to generate new revenue without raising taxes,” Sen. Hobbs said. “I hope this is one of what will be many public-private partnerships the state undertakes in the near future." Under the bill, all funds collected from the program, once maintenance and operation costs are accounted for, will be deposited into the state’s multimodal transportation account. The multimodal account is a dedicated fund that goes to- ward transportatibn programs through— out the state. 20th St. closures this Weekend JOURNAL STAFF The target date to perform the over- lay on 20th Street SE is Friday, June 3 and-Saturday, June 4.
