I was stunned. I read it again. Sure enough, there in the How Your U.S. Lawmaker Voted report put out by Roll Call to the media was a listing of the vote in the third week of May on the 2009 military budget.

M-PHS Commencement Marysville

  • Jun 18, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:39PM

I read with interest your June 11 story about the Marysville-Pilchuck High School 2008 Commencement ceremony. There were a couple of errors in the story: Elizabeth Hasseler's name was misspelled and there is indeed a 2008 Salutatorian. She was not given the opportunity to address the guests, but Julie Zehnder is the M-PHS Class of 2008 Salutatorian. It's no wonder that you misspelled Ms. Hasseler's last name. The Commencement program had the same error in two of the three places her name was listed. Ms. Zehnder's name was listed as the Salutatorian, but it was spelled incorrectly as "Sender."

n A new traffic light and road improvements aren't the only changes about to take place at the intersection of 172nd Street NE and 67th Avenue NE. The 8.8 acres at the northeast corner of the intersection, bordering Highland View Estates, are about to become part of the city of Arlington. If that happens, the area will be slated for "neighborhood commercial" development, which calls for retail business such as clothing and accessory stores, barber shops, grocery stores and gas stations and professional services. It does not allow construction of single-family homes, but does allow apartments on a second or third story above a business. The Arlington City Council last week approved a 60 percent petition on the area owned by Hong Ly. Ly, the only property owner in the proposed annexation submitted a 10 percent notice of intention to annex three months ago. The annexation next goes for a review to Snohomish County. Because of the small size of the proposed annexation and because all the property is owned by one person, the process is expected to go quickly and, if no snags develop, could be completed in a couple of months.
