But we would like to see even more action Roselltni how come Seattle, Snoqualmte Pass, and Interstate 90 are getting all the money for improvements while our own Highway 2 and Stevens Pass is being neglected. Rosellini replied that it was indeed a poor situation for people to sit here in the valley with its beautiful surroundings and see Seattle and the big cities getting all the money. He was the one responsible forgetting monies to build and improve State Highway 522 as well as the improvement of the Monroe-Duvall High- way. But it was sad last Friday to stand out in the brtj~ht warm sun watching the steady pas- sing oz cars, 'campers, trailers and boaters traveling right through town on toward the pass. During this past weekend the little town of Leavenworth was having a big festival and the city of Wenatchee was celebrating its Apple" Blossom festival which provided for extra heavy traffic. But the cars kept going right on through Mon- roe. On the weekend a constant line of cars, racers and horse trailers head across town over to the fair grounds and back home again without even blinking. And we can't find any excuse for this. A committee consisting of businessmen and citizens up and down the valley has been formed to promote Highway 2 and Stevens Pass. The MONITOR recently backed this group in its ef- forts editorially. But we feel more groups like this areneeded, How do you think you can improve the economy by standing on the street waving as the cars go by. There are lots of ways available to improve your economy. All you have to do is find them. This city has a fine city council and an active chamber of commerce. But usually the only ones attending the meetings are the members and the press. There has been very little com- munity support except when something spect- taken to make this an economically success- ful community. In fact we'll even make a proposal to both the chamber of commerce and the city council. We would suggest the establishment of tourist type information booths at both the Bothell cut- off at Highway 522 and at a point east of the new freeway exit. These information booths should be manned during peak winter-skiing hours and during the spring and summer months. They would serve two purposes. One to naturally give out information such as road conditions and the likes. That would solve the Highway 2's committee of poor road condition reporting. The booth could offer complete and accurate road and skiing condition information. Secondly, we would urge preparation and pub- lication of a brochure to hand out to travelers, "selling Monroe." The brochure could point out the good things about the city such as facilities and various stopping places as well as local fishing sites. It could contain a list of restaurants, bus- inesses and the likes This also would be handed out and available at the information booth. Any special upcoming activities in the city could be publicized also. We would even think these booths could be built with a comm~mity effort and possibly staffed with volunteer workers. So we challenge the council and the chamber to consider this tdeaor come up withbetter ideas to promote the city we all live in. We'll even challenge the local businessmen and the citizens to come up with ideas. With a little involvement maybe something can be done. We feel this community as well as others along Highway 2 should take a little more pride in this valley and instead of walking around with your hands in your pockets you should be wondering where you're going to get the extra policemen to handle all the additional traffic. 0se 0 s0n e v e,e, 'i.S i Rose Croix services He is survived by were held recently for two sons, Harold and a longtime Skykomish Earl ofSkykomish, two Cares resident, Joseph H. sisters, Lene Clark of Gibson, at the Purdy Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Kerr Chapel in and Carrie Jodrey of Monroe.
