rating the Bo,!dt decision Journal photos by Gordon Weeks ABOVE: Gov. Jay Inslee, sporting a Seattle Seahawks wristband and a hoarse voice after the Seahawks' downtown Seattle victory parade Feb. 5, addresses the audience at the "Boldt 40" event at the Squaxin Island Tribe's Skookum Creek Event Center. The event marked the 40th anniversary of the landmark decision that affirmed tribal fishing rights, and brought together the treaty tribes of Western Washington. The governor praised those "who fought for justice for so many years ... They were truly on the right side of the law." RIGHT: Billy Frank Jr., chairman of the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission, is presented with a blanket. Frank, a member of the Nisqually Indian tribe, helped lead the demonstrations and 'ish- ins" during the 1960s and '70s that, along with the accompanying lawsuits, led to the Boldt decision of 1974 that restored to the federally recognized tribes the legal right to fish as they always had.

The parcels are either remnants of land left over from road projects, are owned by the county because of land exchanges or were foreclosed on for non payment of property taxes. Commissioners Terri Jeffreys and Randy Neat- herlin vted for the proposal. Commissioner Tim Sheldo was absent. After a landowner has not paid property taxes for three years, the Mason County Treasurer's Office begins the tax foreclosure process in the fourth year, and if the landowner does not pay at least one year of the overdue taxes, the county assumes ownership of the land. Proceeds from the sale of the property will goto- ward delinquent property tax obligations and other penalties, expenses and assessments, to the reim- bursement of the county's property management fund and to the reserve fund for accrued leave. County tables motions on land vacations The Mason County Board of commissioners agreed Tuesday to table motions to approve two land vacations in the county. Commissioner Randy Neatherlin asked to ta- ble the items because Commissioner Tim Sheldon was absent from Tuesday's meeting. The first land vacation was also tabled at the commission's Feb. 4 meeting and concerns a rec- ommendation to vacate a portion of Wheelwright Street and an alley in Allyn. The Mason County hearing examiner has rec- ommended approving the proposed vacation. The second motion concerned vacating a por- tion of a right of way in a cul-de-sac known as East Shore Place. • Compiled by reporter Natalie Johnson ii e ....
