Sievers Plaza dedication
Snohomish County is hosting a naming ceremony and plaque dedication at noon July 9 for Verne and Kirke Sievers, a father-son tandem who served in elected office for more than 80 near-continuous years.
The event is planned outside the county administration buildings at 3000 Rockefeller Ave. in downtown Everett, where a plaque will honor the family’s service.
Kirke Sievers is in his 12th year as county treasurer and is due to step down at the end of the year because of term limits. He has served as treasurer or a county councilman since 1974, the same year his father retired as treasurer.
Verne Sievers was elected county auditor in 1934 and 1938. He served for decades as treasurer, but left office for a couple of years to serve in the Navy during World War II.
Speakers on July 9 are to include County Executive Dave Somers, County Council Chairman Terry Ryan and former County Executive Bob Drewel.

Mock crash at Kamiak
Don’t be alarmed to see fire, police, and aid units converge on Kamiak High School around 9:30 a.m. Thursday. The emergency lights and sirens will be part of an annual DUI mock car crash that will take place in the school’s north parking lot. The event depicts the real-life drama of a fatal car accident, complete with smashed cars, injured passengers who must be rescued and treated by first responders and the arrest of the driver who caused it all. The mock car crash is held each year a couple of days before the school’s prom.
