(SULTAN, WA.) -- Most folks here in the Sky Valley are very familiar with the big (13-feet tall) statue of Chief T’seul-Ted, a respected Native American chief and elder for whom the town of Sultan is named.

He stands at Riverfront Park just a stone's throw from the once mighty Sultan River in strong pose and sturdy gaze looking out over the town named for him. He has a fish in one hand and fishing spear in the other.

That's him in the night photo at right taken by the Chronicle's talented (but testy) shooter B. Tanner.

The early white newcomers to the region (the real Americans, John's people had been here for thousands of years) just couldn't pronounce the name T’seul-Ted very well so they transformed it into "Sultan" and T’seul-Ted became known as Sultan John or Chief John Sultan.

When the statue of Chief Sultan was created by local artist Jerry Carter in the 1980's it was fashioned out of wood and resin. It wasn't meant to last for eternity, unlike radiation from the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant meltdown (better living through cheap nuclear power!).

And now after all these years the statue needs repair and some TLC so the Sky Valley Arts Council has teamed up with Tulalip Tribes and the Community of Sultan to raise money for restoration supplies and equipment.

So, step up to the plate Bubba and make a tax deductible contribution to the cause. You can do it easy and with no pain online or by mail. Check out where by clicking on the flyer at upper right.

Let's git er' done bro.
