If you’re from Arlington, the Tips want to see you

The Everett Silvertips offer Arlington Night for, well, folks in Arlington.

The hockey team welcomes everyone from that town to attend the 7:35 p.m. March 12 game against the Seattle Thunderbirds.

The team likes Arlington so much that folks can attend that game for a reduced price.

If there are tickets left, get yours before Wednesday. Thunderbird games often sell out.

But really, the Silvertips love all their fans. To show it, the first 1,000 through the door will get free cow bells.


Join the new Josephine Historical Club at 10 a.m. today.

Members plan to meet every Friday in March to reminisce. They have many boxes of pictures and books, many written in Norwegian, spanning a century, that the group will organize for scrapbooks and display.

You dont have to be a resident of Josephine Sunset Home, 9901 272nd Place NW in Stanwood, to join the club.

They are looking for a volunteer who is very interested in historical matters to take charge.

When folks at Knights of Columbus Council at St. Cecilias Parish in Stanwood roll up sleeves Monday and wince through a needle poke, perhaps theyll have visions of friends in their minds.

Many of our parishioners and folks in the Stanwood-Camano Island area have had a great need for blood transfusions, says Jack Cartee, chairman of the St. Cecilia blood drive. The blood drive here has helped fill that crucial need.

Many students at Stanwood High School also give blood if they meet the age requirement. Several of the blood donors give very rare blood types, Cartee says.

Give blood from noon to 6 p.m. Monday at 26900 78th Ave. NW in Stanwood. No appointment is necessary. Its sponsored by Stanwood-Camano Knights of Columbus.


Kitchen tools travel to Susan Newbolds Sweetwater Creek Farm Studio in Clinton.

She uses gourds, leather dyes, acrylic paint, fiber, things she finds, sea grass and pine needles to create organic vessels.

I utilize woodcarving, wood turning, pyrography and weaving techniques into my gourds, she says. As a former chef and culinary instructor, many of the unique designs and embellishments that are inherent in food presentation translate well into this art form.

We had to look up pyrography: Its the art or craft of decorating wood or leather with heated tools.

See her work from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at artist Dan Ishlers studio, 30678 Highway 20 in Oak Harbor, during the Whidbey Working Artists Spring Art Studio Tour.

Each gourd is a completely new canvas, Newbold says.

I hold it, feel the shape, weight and texture, taking in organic qualities. I approach the gourd without fear. If I make a mistake, I just keep working with it until it is transformed into something new. Sanding, carving, burning, painting my way to a completed piece of art.

She says she works with gourds the way she works with food.

I try a little of this and experiment with new materials until it tastes right.
