  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:22PM

Despite the dedication and hard work of a group of very committed volunteers, it appears, unfortunately, that the Arlington Library Bond which appeared on the Nov. 7 general election ballot has failed to get the required 60 percent supermajority needed to pass.

In a recent column I focused on the many ways Marysville citizens deal with PNW winters, like snuggling up to the fireplace, challenging the out-of-doors or fleeing southward. After building a case for toughing it out in the Northwests winters wonderland, my wife and I cashed in our Northwest Airlines flight-miles to fly south to join the escapists for eight days.

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:22PM

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:22PM

Aside from a few high-achieving schools, WASL reading scores in Snohomish County need to improve. The percent of Marysvilles seventh graders that met or exceeded WASL standards were Marysville Middle School 49.5 percent, Cedarcrest 56.0 percent, and Tenth Street School 67.3 percent.
