As many of you have noticed, the Lake Stevens Journal has a new and improved website. Not only do we offer you the weekly information you read inside of our pages, but we also offer breaking news and loads of county and state information.

This is a great place to find additional photos that just wouldn’t fit inside our pages.

If you are on facebook, you can now become one of our facebook friends. This is a great way to keep up on what’s going on around town but also gives you the opportunity to let us know what you think.

Love social networking? Well, then you can “tweet” us on Twitter as well.

Admittedly, this Twitter thing is new to all of us at the Journal, so for you “tweeting” fools, please be patient with us. We will get on top of all of it soon and hope that this will provide our readers with more ways to receive local information quickly.

If you want to be up-to-date and well informed on the upcoming election, the Lake Stevens Journal will be holding a Community Candidate Forum for the Lake Stevens community.

There are four city council positions open and the next four years will be critical for Lake Stevens. Please take advantage of this opportunity to find out what each candidate has in mind for our future and how they best fit with your views.

We will also be inviting Dave Somers and Steve Dana, candidates for Snohomish County Council Position 5, to our Community Candidate Forum.

Mark your calendars for Oct. 8 at 7 p.m. and join us at the Lake Stevens School District Educational Services Center to hear what each candidate has to say.

If you would like to send questions for consideration, please email them to

As for business in Lake Stevens, well the good news is that Bridges Pets is staying and growing into the old Craft Star store, Walgreens will be complete by the end of the year, Jack-in-the-Box will be taking over the old Dairy Queen site and Sports Authority is planning to move into the old Joe’s Sporting Goods building.

Check out our website for updates and give us a tweet or look us up on facebook. We love to see and hear from our readers.
