May Be Lowered Due to Flood Damage Owners of real or personal property who have suffered damage or loss in the floods may apply for reduction in property tax assessments, according to Jim Haines, Snoho- mish County Assessor. Application for relief must be made with 75 days of date of damage or destruction. Forms for this purpose are avail- able from the Assessor's office on the third floor on the County Administration Building or they can be mailed on request by calling 259-9433. The reduced values will be effective for taxes due in 1977. If application is made prior to December 31st, a pro- rated reduction may be made on the 1976 tax. Because the damage occurred late in the year, this reduction will be small in 1976. If the claim is filed after December 31st but within 75 days, a partial refund may be made after the 1976 tax is paid, Haines said. This relief is available under a state law covering both real property and taxable personal property, such as live- stock and farm equipment, Haines added.

Weyerhaeuser Mill Conversion Completed Conversion of Weyerhaeus r Company's sul- ] rhite pulp mill, located on the Everett Water- ont,to a thermo-mechantcat (TM) pulping process is complete and startup procedures leading to full mill production are progress- trig. The conversion project transformed the mill into North American's first facility using that process to produce market pulp. Market pulp is a primary product sold for remanufacture into finished products by other companies Converting to the TM process carried a $20 million price tag and is expected to bring en- vironmental improvements, most notably a re- duction in effluent discharge. instead of relying on chemicals to separate wood fibers, heat is applied to soften wood chips following by further refining into fiber by re- volving steel discs. Pulp yield per pound of raw material is also increased substantially. The new TM mill will manufacture 250 metric tons per day and will employ 181 persons. Pulp can be shipped in rolls or bales according to customer preference. Employees have gone through extensive class- room and on-the-Job training sessions in past weeks. Some will perform entirely new Jobs while others needed information on the new process though keeping Jobs similar to those in the sulphite mill. The decision to close the sulphite mill was made in 1971 because of the extreme cost in- volved in making the mill environmentally ac- ceptable. After study of alternative uses for the mill site, a proposal was made in 1973 Navy Seaman Recruit Dak C. OIson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Olson, Route 2, Monroe, .graduated from recruit train- mg at the Naval Training Cen- ter, San Diego, recently. Classes include instruction in seamanship, military regu- lations, fire-fighting, close or- der drill, first aid and Navy history. John has owned and operated Everett's AAA In- stant Printing for six years. During that time, he hasn't had a qualified pension or profit-sharing plan. So this year, he opened an individual retirement account (IRA) at Everett Federal. With Everett Fedqral'o IRA, John can deposit up to $1500 of his earned income each year. And he doesn't have to pay taxes on his IRA savings or the interest it earns until he retires. He saves on taxes now. And when he retires, he'll probably be in'a lower tax bracket, which means a dou- ble tax savings. If you're currently emp- loyed by a business that doesn't have a retirement or profit-sharing program, you qualify for Everett Federal's individual retirement plan. The deadline for starting a new IRA is December 31. Stop by Soon. Now is a good time to talk to our specially trained staff about your indi- vidual retirement .account. to convert to the TM process.
