The events of last Friday, the school shooting in Marysville, just add to the confusion regarding what's happening in our country. Why did this young boy have access to a legal firearm and what sent him over the edge? It's just conjecture on my part, but passing a measure like I-594, closing the "Gun Show Loophole" in this state, probably wouldn't have made a difference. Comment?

Yards of red and white ribbons were cut in Comeford Park as the Marysville and Tulalip communities kicked off their "Paint the Town" event Oct. 27. The ribbon-cutting and tying event was organized literally overnight, by members of the Snohomish County Crime and Community group, to bring the community together. Elaine Soriano, grandmother of 14-year-old shooting victim Gia Soriano, offered the final words of the event to the volunteers, whose numbers included members of the Marysville Getchell, Arlington and Cascade high school football teams, before they headed out to tie ribbons from I-5 to the west, Highway 9 to the east and Smokey Point to the north.
