A6 .:o The Arlington Times Wednesday, I Chamber names new officers, honors past presidents _Sp_ecial to The Arlinqton Times ARLINGTON -- The citizens, yes, that's right, ALL the citizens of Arlington were named the Citi- zen of the Year by the Greater Arlington Area Chamber of Com- merce at the Installation Banquet 2000, held at Gleneagle Country Club last Thursday. Steve Peiffle made the nomina- tion in the form of an hypothetical question, "Does the Citizen of the Year have to be a real citizen? -- suggesting he would like to nomi- nate "the average voter in Arling- ton who finally got up the courage to vote yes for a comprehensive school solution for this communi- ty." Other nominees for the Citizen of the Year award were Cindy Huleatt, Bob Campbell and Bob McClure for their efforts as leaders of the Citizens Committee for Arlington Schools; Kurt McVay, of Kids Voting; and Kenny and Shirley Countryman, members of the Downtown Arlington Mer- chants who have been instrumen- tal in organizing some new events in town the past two years. Retiring president John Meno presented the first ever Presidents Award, acknowledging Steve Peif- tics record-breaking history on the board, since 1984, and his many other volunteer effort in the community, including the Arling- ton Kiwanis Club, the Citizens Committee for Arlington Schools and his church. Also at the banquet, the cham- ber celebrated 40 years in exis- tence with a special recognition for its past presidents, especially the chamber's founding father Don Meier, who was the first president of the Greater Arlington Area Chamber of Commerce in 1960. Meier continues to attend meet- ings when he isn't basking in the sun at his winter home in southern California. The Arlington chamber evolved from an earlier Arlington Commer- cial Club, established in 1900. New officers and directors were sworn in at the banquet, with Cory Duskin following in the steps of his father and uncle, to be named president for the year 2001. Vice President is Kathi Cherrier and John Meno is happy to be assum- ing the office of Past President. Six new directors were named: Damon Canfield, Shirley Country- man, Mike Jones, Karl Lewis, War- ren Hopkins and Dawn Solvberg. Returning board members are Sarah Arney, Dave Boulton, John Burkholder, Kathi Cherrier, Kay Duskin, Nancy Lanz, Roger Miller, Steve Peiffle and Carie Rott. Retiring directors Deb Borgens, Kris Murrell and Steve Peterson were thanked for their service to the board and the community. 40 years Recognizing 40 years of service to the community, the Greater Ar!ing- ton Area Chamber of Commerce invited all past presidents to its Installation Ban- quet 2000 last Thursday.

Staying at 3A would only postpone the inevitable, and it would eliminate long-cherished rivalries. "I want to play Stanwood. I want to play Lake Stevens, and 1 think rekindling a natural rivalry with Marysville would be great," Jeffer- son said. The problem, others point out, is that the proposed realignment of the new Wesco 4A would put Arlington in a North Division with those three teams, plus 4A sports powers such as Cascade and Sno- homish. Even Oak Harbor would pose a stiff challenge to most of Arlington's sports teams. Another 3A school, Mount ver- non, might enter the league as well, which would sit an enormous Free Estimates Specialty Welding [I gorilla atop the boys hoops sce- nario. An informal conversation between soccer coach Nathan Davis and girls basketball coach Mike Buckholz earlier this month indicated that not all Arlington coaches agree on their preferred outcome. Davis and Buckholz were hop- ing to stay 3A and were lobbying at least one other coach, boys bas- ketball's Dan Rauch, to see things their way. For the record, Buckholz said the state's athletic association should have seen this coming and adapted. "I think the WIAA has been neg- ligent to allow this to happen," Buckholz said. He said by adjusting the num- bers up, perhaps by as little as 50 students, the state could have avoided next year's logjam of 4A schools compared to too few 3As statewide.
