It may be unusual for an atmospheric river to hit Marysville in June, but that makes it even more delightful when the Sun comes out.
☀️Ode to Marysville
The following poem was written by Marysville author, artist, and art teacher, Joan Dabrowski, and posted on her Facebook page earlier this week. Her poem and pictures are shared here in the Marysville Sun with her permission.
It’s easy to shop online with one click, And it magically sails to your door, what a trick! But shopping on 3rd street is good for your soul, It shows love and support to our shops, THAT’S THE GOAL! Whatever you need, you’ll find it right here, Vintage finds, or a hair cut, a sip of craft beer! There’s photographers, doggie treats, gift shops galore, A bakery smelling so sweet, you’ll want MORE! Teriyaki for those that are hungry for lunch, And those crazy Cross-Fitters who are such a great bunch. Just what is Acai? Spoon & Straw’l set you right, And it’s El Rey Tamales for dinner tonight. Show some love to your hometown, pop in and say, “Hi!” They are waiting to see you-that’s all. Goodbye 😀
☀️Pride Poll Results
We learned a lot from last week’s poll. About 10% of readers took the poll and 90% of the poll-takers leaned conservative. Maybe most significantly, we learned that the TypeForm service is too expensive for the Sun’s current funds. 😎 Here are the full results:
☀️Rising Crime and Educational Decline
On May 29 the Mayors of Snohomish County signed a joint article addressing the increase in crime and how recent State legislation is making enforcement more difficult. Last Sunday the Herald ran a follow-up editorial with more information. It relates to the public safety town hall meeting held last Tuesday at the Opera House in Marysville.
We reported in the May 20 issue of the Sun that the Marysville School District Board wanted to require parental consent for students to join after school clubs. The Everett Herald reported Tuesday that the Board tabled the decision due to the possibility of legal action against the Board for infringement of “students’ rights.” This is a bigger problem than the budget.

The 'Support Your Local Sheriff' production was great, very enjoyable, good job everyone. And, hopefully the Marysville and other local school boards will do what is right despite threats, and get rid of the worst elements in the local public schools, such as these deceptively abusive grooming poisonous alphabet soup clubs (LB...whatever).
I found it interesting that the poem didn’t mention 5 Rights Brewery.
