Friends and neighbors of Mabel Baunsgard will be saddened to hear that she suffered a serious stroke on New Year's Day and was rushed to the hospital. At this writing her condition was still considered very serious. Also hospitalized over the holidays was Gorden Simmons. His problems were mainly a very bad cold, and fearing the weather might get bad and they wouldn't be able to get in if his condition got worse he decided the best place to recuperate was where he could have lots of pretty nurses around to wait on him. He went in the Tuesday before Christmas which changed their plans a bit and was there for a little better than a week. He and Gret along with Leroy Fessler and his son, Jon had all planned to spend the day with the Simmons daughter, Dixie Arata and her family in Portland.

EVENING SPRING 1971 January 12 To May 13 leen Christmas Gret attended the wedding of her nephew, Don Howard to Billy Latzel at the Episcopal Church in Shelton. A reception followed the ceremony at the Memorial Hall with around 150 people on hand to congratulate the newlyweds. And there is still another unfortunate piece of news concerning some former Islanders. Earl and Sybil Gillette lost their garage in a fire two days before New Year's Day. Sybil was in town shopping at the time the fire started. A neighbor heard the popping and crackling and alerted Earl who hadn't yet been aware Of any trouble. He was able to move his pickup away in time but a new riding lawn mower fell victim to the blaze as did most of the couple's tools and assorted possessions that most family garages house. They were fortunate that outside fire districts (they are not actually in one) came to their aid in time to keep the house from burning too. The flu bug is also making his obnoxious way around the Island. Car Williams is recovering after a bout with him. He and Hilda celebrated Christmas three times. First with their daughter at Magnolia Bluff on Christmas Eve and then on to an aunt's home on Bainbridge Island the next day. Then on Sunday there was a big family gathering at their son, Clinton's home in Puyallup.. The Bragets, Kay and Elwood spent Christmas Day with her folks, the Adamsons down in Woodland, south of Longview. Then on New Year's their friends, the Pains from Olympia helped them see the New Year in. The Lloyd Goodwins were home for the Holidays with both their son, Dick, and daughter, Barbara German and their families out for Christmas day. Also still with them is Lloyd's mother from Wisconsin. After hearing the current weather forecasts for her home state she may decide Washington is a pretty good place to be after all. Dick and his family spent most of the school vacation with his folks before returning to their home in Oregon. The flu bug also paid Ruth a visit toward the end of vacation. The John Hitchcocks spent Christmas Eve with their son, Lyle and family in Olympia. Then on Christmas day they all went from there over to Pauline's home in Des Moines for dinner. Grandson, Randy came down to the Island with his grandparents and spent several days. Pauline came out to her folks on New Years. Also Beulah's brother dropped in prior to going down to the Ocean for a clam digging session. Randy, along with a niece of Beulah's and Roy's from Oregon and her family came up for the ocean outing too.

Then they returned to tire Island for Christmas Day. The boys' two sisters, Sue and Patti and their husbands came out to the Island and the gals fixed a big Christmas dinner. Celia Glaser had daughter Margaret Simmons and her whole family here on the Island for Christmas Day. It had been better than two years since all four of Simmons had gotten together, as son Dan just arrived home from Vietnam in time for the holidays. The following day all the Glasers headed for a wedding in Tacoma. Celia's grandson, Steve Franich and his bride, Jane from Gig Harbor were united in marriage in a church ceremony. A large reception followed the wedding at the Country Club. New Year's eve Bud was host for a New Year's celebration at his Ballow home. Guests were the members of the survey crew he works with and their wives. A good number of the Point Wilson property owners came and went to their vacations homes. The Otto Goldschmids had both their daughters, Johanna and Lisa home for the holidays. The Murry Morgans found to their dismay that a pre-Christmas storm had really raised havoc with their cabin on the beach. The storm's main weapon was a log 1, 5, 9, 13. ies In which pounded several of the underpinnings out from under the structure, letting one corner dip precariously into the Sound at high tides. But with the help of the two Duffield boys, the damage was repaired back to its original ship-shape pre-storm condition. Mary Adams journeyed to California to spend the Holidays with her son, and his family. She reported having a wonderful time and good weather conditions helped even more to make it a very nice trip. Ruth Wingert was home with her mum Claire Wingert over the long holidays. She had a vacation from her Bellingham studies for almost two weeks. She called on Francis Madge while she was on the Island. Two of Claire's grandsons, also spent a part of their vacation on the Island dividing their time between their Grandma and their Aunt Elaine and Uncle Bob Ireland. Bob and Elaine spent part of the Christmas tIoliday with his folks in Port Orchard. After spending Christmas with daughter Bernice and her family ;n Olympia, Esther Gortz returned home with all three grandchildren in tow. I bumped into her while shopping in town last Saturday after she had just delivered them safely back home. She said the first thing she planned to do after she got back home was return about a bucket full of sand back to its proper place on the beach and then put her feet up and enjoy a nice long leisurely uninterrupted moment of Island R & R. Frank and Jerry Lewis and three girls all drove up the day after New Years to spend a couple of days with her dad, Thee Waite before returning to their home in Portland and settling back into the post holidays rut.(Like most of the rest of us!) Everett and Helen reported spending a quiet holiday by themselves..They did drop in a time or two to play cards with Reid and Edna Mitchell. Otherwise they enjoyed the coziness of their friendly new fireplace. Alice and Johnny Budd had her son, Curtis and his wife, Vivian with them for a couple of days right after Christmas. A good share of the property owners gathered at Harvey and Shirley Crafts, Hole-in-the-Wall home to see the New Year in together. A large group took advantage of the couple's Christmas vacation special hospitality, the heated swimming pool. The dip in the heated pool was really enjoyable during our crisp weather. But even more refreshing was that fast dash to the dressing rooms afterwards. As this reporter's family, plus Grandma Lila can really attest to, at least that was the case late in the afternoon of the last day of 1970! This reporter and her family spent Christmas Day with Glenn's niece Connie Wiles in Auburn. Glenn's folks, the Stan Yates from Phillip's Lake were also among the twenty-five to thirty relatives present at the Mike Wiles home that day. Making it a real special occasion was having Glenn's brother, Warren and his wife, Bonnie travel all the way from Scottsdale, Arizona to join the family gathering. But it was not altogether a happy trip for the travelers as they had to come via Colorado to attend the funeral for Bonnie's dad in Wray. From Auburn this reporter and her family headed for Tacoma to spend some time with a former Islander and old school chum, Jewel (Pinard) Doering and her family in their new home overlooking the Narrows bridge. We spent two very enjoyable days with the Doerings and got back home late Sunday afternoon. The Chuck Bridges family were hosts for a New Year's eve celebration for the Saddle Club from McCleary which they belong 9 to. Two of the families wound up staying over until the next day. The George Waite family along with Mac and Tom Tierney and Thee Waite and George Howard spent Christmas Day with the Waite's daughter, Cindy Bingham and her family. Christmas Eve the Waite family, and Dot Smith all gathered at the Jim Archer home for a big family (about 34) gathering. The Steig Gabrielsens enjoyed having their younger son, David and his wife, Nancy from Oregon spend a few days with them during the holidays. The young couple arrived a few days after Christmas and stayed through New Years. They attended a New Year's Party with friends in Enumclaw. 2, 3, 4 TROPICAL FISH 6 7 8. 10 11. 12.

Everywhere you turn you'll find trees helping Washington_ people. ne 63,000 men In jobs ale , and women depend upon the forest products industr.y for employment. Total gross sales for Washington forest- based industries will be $2 billion this year. It takes a lot of money to keep these forests green and growing. Millions of dollars go into intensive for- est management, more millions are paid out in taxes -- for lOcal and state govern- ment and schools. The forest tax story is complicated, but in simple terms, tree farmers pay a land tax and a tree tax. The tree tax is cumula- tive. In other words, the tree is taxed year after year, again and again, until harvest. This means that early growth is taxed as much as 30 to 90 times. To maintain intensive forest management as we know it today, there needs to be stabilization of the soaring tax rates on timber, and the development of an equit- Large Variety!
