Reauthorization of No Child Left Behind is a necessity

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:20PM

When Congress passed No Child Left Behind in 2002, few could have envisioned the unintended consequences that the act would create in school districts across the nation. Now, six years later, Congress is positioned to re-authorize NCLB. Despite some of the Acts unexpected problems (and unfunded mandates), reauthorization is the right step, since NCLB has increased accountability and spurred many districts to refocus on strategic ways to improve academic performance and achievement. During the reauthorization process, however, Congress must take a closer look at NCLB and implement the absolutely necessary improvements that would make the legislation more effective and equitable, for all of Americas school children.

The fate of Ref. 67

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:19PM

The fate of Referendum 67 on Nov. 6 will depend, I suspect, on whether you have ever been involved in dealings with your insurance company over an accident, an injury, a fire or loss of some kind and if you came out of it thinking you got a square deal.

Grade your very own community report card

Mankind has become so much one family that we cannot insure our own prosperity except by insuring that of everyone else. If you wish to be happy yourself, you must resign yourself to seeing others also happy.

Mandating state contraceptive education (done), removing the supermajority to build, operate schools (not doneyet)

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:19PM

We now will have a law saying that if a Washington school teaches sex ed it has to teach about contraceptives as well as abstinence. And we have had serious moves to eliminate the necessity of a supermajority vote to pass school bonds and levies that as yet is not law (ESJR 8207/EHJR 4204).

Norm Maleng gives a lifetime of public service

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:19PM

Norm Malengs problem, I thought and why he got left at the post in his two tries for governor and one for attorney general, was that he found it difficult to blow his own horn.

Strawberry Festival offers something for everyone

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:19PM

Everyone has their favorite Strawberry Festival activity. For some its the Grand Parade or the fireworks that follow. For others it may be the Pig Out on the Farm, the trike races, the Funtastic carnival, the talent show or the Berry Run. For many, last years inaugural Poochapalooza became an instant favorite and will return this year.

Knowledge is power Arlington

  • Apr 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 27, 2008 at 8:17PM

I think there should be a new library in Arlington because our town has grown and the facility we now have is to small for the size of the community. We need to promote reading because that is a gift that everyone should have in their life.

Vote before May 20

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 27, 2008 at 8:17PM

I wonder what motivates the 25 or more people who are working so tirelessly on the Committee for a New Arlington Library. They obviously realize how important a new and expanded library is for the Arlington community. I am thankful for their dedication to this very worthwhile cause. Our time at committee meetings, work parties, telephoning, various community organization presentations and distributing information to the voters is time well spent and shared by many on the committee.
