Build a resource Arlington

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:42PM

We have the opportunity to build a resource for our children, our parents, ourselves. I'm talking about the request to build a new public library one that will provide enough space for fun, educational programs; more room for computers so that students can do their homework; more space for books, magazines, videos and CDs, and more reference materials (yes, there are still many of us who prefer to actually hold a book in our hands when we're looking for answers or to copy a pattern or recipe from a book rather than spending time on line).

Times needs balance Arlington

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:41PM

The political views repeatedly expressed by your regular columnist Adele Ferguson, while welcome, are arguably not shared by at least half of your readership. Would it not be fair that her column space be equally shard by someone with an opposing viewpoint? In this critical election year, it is we the people who must make an informed decision about who will best work for us in these difficult times we face as a nation. Being subjected to only one biased viewpoint from an obvious fig-leaf partisan hack does not serve the best interest of our democracy. Please, let's have a more open dialogue of the issues. After all, we have nothing to lose but our democracy itself.

Knowledge is power Arlington

• In the 13 years Wayne Robertson has run the Lakewood schools, the district has undergone tremendous growth. Now it's his turn. The Lakewood superintendent announced this week that he will be the newest assistant superintendent in the Edmonds School District. "This will take me in a different direction and offer me some experience with a large organization," Robertson said, understating the change. He goes from a district with 2,300 students to one with more than 21,000. As assistant superintendent, Robertson will run a part of the Edmonds School District that is nearly three times the size of Lakewood. Robertson feels a more important distinction in his new job is a chance to work with educators who are recognized around the state and even the country for their innovation in education. "They are recognized leaders in educational reform," he said. Edmonds schools have used performance-based education standards for 10 years. Robertson said it's a direction many area school districts are taking now. Lakewood is one of those. And Robertson is himself a leader in school reform. He brought a new style of decision-making to the district. "He is known for his work in site-based decision making," noted Lakewood High School Principal Kris McDuffy. His resignation comes on the heels of a successful, if drawn out, campaign to pass a maintenance and operations levy. The levy request was endorsed by 66 percent of Lakewood voters after failing with only 50 percent in February. More importantly, he leaves behind schools now known for their focus on learning. "We have basically enhanced programs that were lost by the early levy failures or that never existed," he said. "I never really expected the real depth, caring and commitment that I found in Lakewood," said McDuffy, who was hired by Robertson nine years ago.
