The Herald was hosting The Great Herald Cookie Exchange. For added incentive the paper was offering a $200 first prize, $100 second prize, and a $50 third prize for the best holiday cookies in Snohomish County. Forum Columnist Judyrae Kruse was accepting the entries at the Holiday Inn on 128th Street SE.

Molly Mikulich, coordinator and longtime participant in Snohomish School District’s Comment Education program, and the Snohomish Police Department recently were honored by the Washington state Community Education Association for their efforts, especially involving a program for identifying and handling child and family abuse.
