Volume 92, Number 41; Wednesday, June 3, 1981 ingto Arlington, Snohomish County, Washington 98223 Woodlands sewer line approved, action taken on related work The Woodlands housing development project received approval from the Arling- ton City Council June 1 to begin installing its sewer line north along 67th Avenue. The sewer line functions by gravity from the development area to 67th Avenue until intersecting with the Burlington-Northern railroad crossing. A pump station flushes the material from the railroad crossing to the city's sewer plant. Plans for installing the 12 inch wide line to the crossing are set. but Woodlands engineers will work with the city~ to determine the location of the pump station and design other aspects of the route from the crossing to the sewer plant. The development's Sector I plan also met council approval, consisting of the designation of roads and lots. The division of development plan, dealing with more technical engineering aspects of Sector I, was approved subject to Arlington Plan- ning Commission adoption June 2. In the final action dealing with the Woodlands project, the council approved the continuation of internal, on site, construction. In other action, the council: -approved the "usable open space" zoning ordinance amendment after hold- ing a public hearing on the issue. For each dwelling unit 200 square feet of "green belt" open space is required. The amend- ment was drawn up by the city to clarify what is meant by usable open space, such as, the quality of land required, can required setbacks for fire prevention be used along with river banks. The amend- ment specifies to developers what they can be used. Councilman Tim Simmons voiced the only objection to its approval, stating the required amount of open space was excessive and disallowing land at a five percent grade or greater from qualifying was to strict. - tabled a LI zoning amendment until the next meeting dealing with the type of structure allowed on certain zoned areas for night watchman quarters. Wayne Christianson's request to use a travel trailer for a watchman's quarters caused the amendment that will affect other watchmen's quarters in Arlington. If approved, the amendment will allow night watchmen quarters on certain zoned areas, but rejected the use of mobile homes as adequate quarters. The amend- ment was sent to the building committee for review and recommendations. -tabled the business license ordinance indefinitely.

A new middle school librarian replaces Lord Nineteen years ago the Arlington School District desperately needed a middle school librarian. The scarcity of librarians forced the distridt to ask a teacher to fill the position. classes were in store for the new librarian ,and further education wasn't in Lord's plans. Finally, maybe being a librarian was what she was meant to be, Lord thought. So she accepted the job and turned the middle school library into today's efficient media center. For those persons not connected with school anymore, libraries are considered media centers due to the wave of technology introduced to libraries. Today, books are just one of the resources in media centers. Accompany- ing the books are audio and visual eqmpment providing alternative learning methods. To improve the middle school media center, Lord took several steps since becoming its director: increased the book volume from 2,000 to 9,000; hooked up more audio and visual equipment; created a magazine back file; turned a useless card catalog into a vaulable resource; added several hundred paperback books; and organized a library club. Her job is two-fold, she said. Along with helping students find information, she helps teachers. Both groups come to Lord with questions and like a detective she sifts through reference material to find a certain quote or poem. "1 enjoy working with teachers, 1 show them materials that can make their job easier," Lord said.

Nelda Ulery A vacancy opened in the Arlington School District in 1954, Ulery applied and Superintendent Tom Terjeson hired her to instruct homemaking to Arlington High School students, During one 12-year period, she was the lone food and sewing teacher.
