Now I KNOW things are different in Marysville!

Remember the Marysville school district, where I started off and promptly got involved in the longest teachers' strike in state history? And it went downhill from there? Well, the results of the latest levy and bond elections are finally in, and wonders of wonders, they both passed! Both needed sixty percent to pass. The levy passed with 60.18%, while the bond squeaked by with 60.06% — a margin of only eight votes. This is significant as it's the first bond passed in the district in sixteen years. Now the district can build the second high school and another elementary school which they desperately need. For details, here's the story in The Seattle Times and, loathe though I am to send traffic their way, The Everett Herald.
