Front Porch: Volunteer to be an odor monitor
Volunteers' records will be used along with odor monitors to trace a smell that has plagued people in Marysville and north Everett in recent years.
Any volunteers are welcome, with the Clean Air Agency especially seeking people who live in Tulalip and western Lake Stevens for geographic balance.
Participants should be non-smokers with an average sense of smell, not pregnant, and must be able to attend a training session at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Everett area.
To volunteer, call 206-689-4077 or email BrianR@pscleanair.org.
De-stress your holiday: Professional organizer Monika Kristofferson will share many tips for managing time, entertaining, shopping and more during the holidays.
The program begins at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Mountlake Terrace library, 23300 58th Ave W.
It's free, but register online at http://tinyurl.com/cq879uh or by calling 425-776-8722.
