Marysville: Green lights for safety
Fire stations in Marysville will keep a green, lighted wreath out front through New Year's to remind people to stay safe.
The "Keep the Wreath Green" program encourages fire prevention during the holiday season, Fire Marshal Tom Maloney said.
The lights are turned to red if there's a house or business fire in Marysville. They're turned to white if there's a firefighter death in the country.
More info: www.marysvillefiredistrict.org.

Stanwood: Twin City PTA raising funds for computers
Twin City Elementary School's PTA is asking for donations to support technology improvements at the Stanwood school.
Twin City Elementary has more children from low-income families than any other school in the community. For many students, school is the only place they have time on a computer, PTA officers said.
The 24 computers in the school lab are outdated and not compatible with current software. The Twin City PTA plans to raise $16,500 to replace the computers and add six more to meet growing class sizes.
More info: 425-319-7826 or pta@twin-city-elementary.com.
