2 - The Arlington TIMES - Wed., Nov. (O ......... ,,, THELETTERS,,EDITOR,,, TO ,,,, ,,,, "'~/ F~litor: Now that the voters have spoken out decisively on the swimming pool, 1 hope the Stillaguamish Park and Recreation District will get off the issue and devote some time to doing the job for which they were elected: providing recreational op- portunities for all the citizens in the district, within funds available, The group has not been a recreational district since it was formed. Anyone attending their various meetings would know they've been a "swimming pool district" from their inception. There are a lot of things they can do for citizens of the Arlington area which will not cost $2 million. Athletic fields for youth and adult soccer, baseball, softball and football, for instance. Hiking and riding trails, horse facilities, a small handball and gymnasium complex -lots of different things that are relatively inexpensive, as compared to a white elephant swimming pool. The voters have spoken; let's get on with the job at hand. Sincerely, Wayne Kruse Arlington Police report Malicious mischief A front window was broken and the bottom half of the door kicked in Saturday, Nov, 14. at the custodian's building in Arlington Cemetery.

Community involvement sought By John Berglund In an effort to provide the best possible program in the Lakewood area, commun- ity schools coordinator. John Berglund. is in the process of locating people interest- ed in forming an advisory committee. The purpose of the committee is to aid in the development of classes and activities for the residents of the area. and provide access to the Lakewood school buildings. The first meeting has been set for Monday, Nov. 30. in the Lakewood school board room at 7 p.m. Berghmd reports that many classes have been confirmed for the winter schedule, but man,,, more could be added. Also, a method of publicizing these class listings needs to be discussed as well as tuition costs and instructor compensation. According to Berglund, the entire program can be put together without help. but without this input from community members, classes could be offered that would attract no one and classes that would be ideal for the community could be overlooked. Another function of the committee would be to x~ork tov~ards non-duplication of class oft\-rings.

A CHIROPRACTIC CHECKUP is the first STEP towards good HEALTH EIS available on proposed development The Snohomish County Office of Com- munity Planning has issued a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (E1S) for a proposal by Hartford Fabricators, Inc. of Market input wanted The ad hoe steering committee organi- zing the proposed Snohomish County Farmers Market is seeking further input from area resideHts. Steering committee chairman Bob Wal- lis would like to see community residents meet together to exchange ideas about a farmers market, then send a representa- tive to the steering committee meetings in Everett. The committee is after commitments from persons wishing to supply produce at a market in the Everett area. A location hasn't been determined yet. Large su.ppliers are not what the committee m seeking, instead small growers interested in providing a produce stand every market day is sought. When the market will be held and between what months is yet to be decided. Several fishermen have already been organized to supply the market with a variety of seafood, Wallis said. Like the produce growers, the market is also planned to give the small-time fisherman an opportunity to sell his product. After a market is setup in Everett and running well, organizing small markets in communities around the county is another idea Wallis would like to see initiated. The steering committee of nine mem- bers was appointed at the last public meeting on the market October 20. The Senior Services Association, the Everett Downtown Association and the Everett Chamber of Commerce are some of the groups represented on the committee. Persons with input or questions on the proposed market should call Mike Hac- kctt. Snohomish County Extension Agent, at 259-9422 or attend the farmers market meetings.
