Bothell Landing Veterans Day ceremony honors fallen soldiers — two from this year

Some cried and others smiled, but the people who showed up at the Park at Bothell Landing last Saturday all had one thing in common: love and respect for the brave veterans who served their country. Two soldiers in particular, Bothell’s Nicholas Madrazo and Jason Bogar — both killed in Afghanistan this year — were on the minds of the 50 people who attended the Veterans Day memorial event. The rain couldn’t keep them away.

Meeting focuses on landing clean up

Consultant Arnie Sugar of HWA Geo Science said that until “shockingly recently” a lot of what would now be considered industrial toxins simply were stored in the ground or just dumped into the ground.

Purse winds up in Bothell, returned to Winthrop woman

If Mary Pat Sigler’s denim purse could talk, it would tell quite a story. If a movie were to be made, the title could be “The Mystery of the Traveling Purse.” Either way, the carryall has logged some 395 miles alone over the last two months and is now safely back on Sigler’s shoulder. Sigler, a Winthrop resident, lost her handbag near Marble Mountain Aug. 30. Mark Smith found it in the middle of the street near a 7-Eleven on Filbert Road in Bothell — some 180 miles away — two weeks ago.

Bothell’s Celeste Marion founds charitable special-ed school in Peru

At the still-young age of 28, Bothell’s Celeste Marion figures she has visited approximately 24 countries. After graduating from Bothell High, she and friends even spent some time backpacking around Europe. Eventually, in 2004, Marion’s wanderings led her to Peru. Why Peru? The world traveler offers a pretty straight-forward explanation. “I’d never been there before,” she said. Now, after having spent nearly four years in the country off and on, Marion has teamed up with a native partner to help found “Manos Unidas,” or “United Hands,” a charitable school for special-education students in Cusco, Peru.
