Crucial Lakewood levy election scheduled o2O be The Lakewood School District's second and last attempt this year to get a much needed levy passed by district residents at the election booths is Tuesday, May 5. The layoff of four teachers, two main- tenance employees and two support personnel would result if the levy fails for the second time this year. The layoff number was determined, after the initial look at the general education budget for next year, said John Berglund, the district's community serv- ice coordinator. Changes could be made after a oloser review of the budget, if the levy fails like the February 3 election. Lakewood student's education suffers, too, Berglund said. Twenty-seven students per classroom is planned if the levy passes, but over 30 per classroom if the opp.osite results. The largest classroom size would be 34 students, a one-third increase. Material cost per student would drop from this year's $45, to $16, Berglund said. The layoff of teachers, maintenance and clerical personnel, to the bare minimum, will keep Lakewood's education program at a high level by using the money the district saves, he added. The levy failed twice last year before the February 3 loss due to the turnout. The levy elction to be valid needs 40 percent of the residents who cast ballots in the general election last November. The February levy election fell 100 voters short of validation. The two-year levy of $485,000 will provide the district with $235,000 next year and $250,000 the following year, if passed. The levy is the largest amount the Lakewood district is allowed under the state levy lid law. Enough thought the state legislature said there would be 100 percent funding for education, Berglund said it hasn't happened yet. The state covers only $1,801,569 of Lakewood's $2,810,940 general education budget next year, he added. For every $1,000 of accessed property in the Lakewood district, it will cost residents $1.25 a month for the first year and $1.30 the second year. "Pretty cheap," Berg- lund said. A person owning a $50,000 home would pay only $5.21 a month. The district's poor general education "We lake pride in prompt, courteous s(rvice without cost to our custonlers," said Mar,, Zoe Neubecker. manager of the nev, Ariitw3on Travel agency which opened last week at 380 West Ave.. next to dw Sears Caialog Store. Among the services Neubecker refers to are domcMic and international airline travel, cruises, betel reservations, car rcma!s, trips via Amtrak and any other phasc~ of travel with the exception of busing individuals° The agency's special ty, Ncubcckcr said, is group by any means, including buses.

Meet halfway Take things as they come, but remem- ber. there are a lot of things it pays to go after. Garbage and other waste materials may no longer be discarded at the Oso open dump. The dump site was closed April 3. The Oso Rural Drop Box station is the • sixth drop box facility developed under the Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Plan for Snohomish County which was originally adopted in October, 1974. The overall intent of the program is to eliminate open dump sites in Snohomish County and replace them with modern, sanitary transfer and disposal sites for solid wastes. Recent studies pending adoption call for increased resource recovery and recycling of county waste materials, possibly through incineration of solid waste with heat recovery and energy production. Completion of the waste collection and transport network is an important step in the overall goal to gather and productively Saturday. 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4:30 p.m.; and the Darrington Landfill. For further information and assistance, call the Solid Waste Division at 259-9425. We told you last week about Bob Kraski being mistaken for the Reverend Rollin J. Carlson. Well, this week we can top that. Seems Pastor Carlson was walking down ntain street here when some fellow hollered out of his car window, "Listen. you blankety-blank, when are you going to deliver those two chairs I ordered!" Don't you think posters to identify who's who might be in order? So do we. Appearances are deceiving, but disap- pearances are often more so. Appearm|ce is an important factor in earning money, and vice versa. Looks are deceiving, but it's better to have them deceive for us than against us. A man's appearance shows how much he is earning; a woman's appearance shows how much she is spending, When someone says you look like a million dollars, don't swell with pride; maybe you do look overtaxed. The reason mature men look younger than mature women is that a woman of 40 is usually 50, Many a woman grows old before her time trying to look young after her time. Guess we're becoming more and more cynical. If someone says we've looking good, it's our secret opinion they mean we're getting fat. If they say we're looking tired, we think they mean we're looking old. Of course, we readily admit that we're neurotic. But then everybody is a little neurotic; nowadays you can't be normal if you aren't. Neurotics worry about things that didn't happen in the past instead of worrying like normal people about things that won't happen in the future. The differen¢~ is that a neurotic doesn't answer the telephone when it rings, while a psychotic answers it when it doesn't ring. A neurotic builds castles in the air; a psychotic lives in them. and the psychi- atrist collects the rent. A psychotic thinks that two plus three equals six; a neurotic knows that two plus three equals five, but worries about it. And that reminds us. did you know that May is national mental health month? That's probably a good enough reason to celebrate like crazy! A good example of a split personality is an egotist with an inferiority complex. Many a woman wouldn't mind having a split personality - if the other one did the housework. The man with the split personality probably takes a pep pill one day and a tranquilizer the next. The man with the split personality is the only one who can go out on a double date with himself. Back to celebrations, why is it that fishing season opens next Sunday morn- ing but National Fishing Week won't be marked until May 11 through 17? Ed Howe once said, "Fishing seems to be the favorite form of loafing." A fisherman first lies in wait for a fish, and then lies in weight after landing it. Some men. in telling a fish story, will go to any length. if all the big fish that got away were in the sea, there wouldn't be any room for water. When you go fishing, if you'll throw out your hook without baiting it, you won't be disturbed. Some men catch fish; others merely feed them. We'll close with the thought that a thoughtful wife has the meat and potatoes ready when her husband comes home from a fishing trip. S'long. See you next week. CASCADE VALLEY HOSPITAL "p~ 330 SO.

The levy will combine with the non-salary funds to help support a high level of education. "Everyone else is passing levies so I hope the people out here feel the same way," Berglund said. The Lakewood district serves only kindergarten to ninth grade students until its own high school is completed for next year. Then Lakewood High School age students attending other schools will remain in the local area. The "rich" building fund monies, B~rglund said, can't be used for general education. Stilly swimming t The 40 people present at the panel discussion on swimming and water safety April 13 agreed that swimming in the Stillaguamish River is not safe. Some of the suggestions to prevent further drownings (there have been 10 drownings in the river since 1972) included wire fences, lifeguards, safety equipment, swimming education pro- grams, and a new covered swimming pool. Arlington resident Cheryl Gough, as well as the Recreation District Commis- sioners felt that a community swimming facility was one solution to the problem. YMCA-Red Cross representative Dan SIoan showed a film on water safety and stated some communities had water safety classes included in the curriculum of local school districts. He also felt that the availability of rescue equipment at Hailer Park Site and the Twin Rivers Park Site would be helpful. County Parks representative Ron Mar- tin pointed out that it was difficult to know who had jurisdiction over some of the sites poeple used for recreational swimming. He mentioned alternative swim areas within driving distrance but stated that Buddy poppy sales The annual sale of Buddy Poppies by the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States begins soon throughout the nation. The poppies are assembled by disabled veterans and the proceeds of this fund- raising campaign are used exclusively for the benefit of disabled and needy veterans, plus, the widows and orphans of deceased veterans. An uncovered lemon peel will absorb refrigerator odors and add its own fresh smell. The Arlington TIMES Subscription price $0.00 per year; $10.50 per year outside Snohomish County.
