McClanahan Route 3 She]ton SUPPORT PALMER Editor, Shelton Mason County Journal : Congratulations to Dean Palmer on his letter published Jan. 31 in the Journal. The inconsistencies he mentioned are too real to be imagined. State or Federal money is the same whether it is spent for an institution, a highway, or a sewer project. Why accept it for one and not the other? The economy of She]ton and Mason County is of great interest to me as I still own a home there although I can not afford to live in it. When Rayonier closed its Shel- ton mill in 1958 some of its em- ployees were able to find work locally while others, including quite a number of us here in Sitka, Alaska, had to leave the area to find steady employment. We manage to keep in touch with conditions there by making an occasional visit "back home" and hearing from friends who still live there. Many of these friends are working steadily but some, of course are not. There is a very interesting news item that was printed on the same page as Dean's letter entit- led "Local Spending is up for food, ears." When a larger percen- tage of the Consumer dollars is spent for these two essential items (Private transportation is a must in Mason County), it indicates that thm'e are more people who just haven't the money to spend fm less essential ones. This leads up to the only area in which I do not fully agree with Palmer's letter. Invite new indus- tries in, yes! But if Simpson builds another board plant or other forest products plant, thus Undoubtedly printed Jan. 31. Sincerely Ray Collins, St. ............................... IIAllNTINE ANSWER Mrs. Dot Smith. Mrs. Edith Smalley and tile By Mary Valley SKOKOMISH About seventy five friends and relatives attended the rec, eptian at the Sl<okomisll Comnmnily Hall last Sunday af- lernot)n !11 honor of Mr. and'Mrs, Lesler Ct'ossan on their 251h wed- ding annivers/ry.

Earl Crossan of Auburn. The proposed Harstine Bridge is not a million-dollar expenditure. The estimated cost being $720.000. The present ferry is obsolete, and inadequate, and must be replaced within the next two years. The estimated cost for this would be around $200,000. Then add on t $20.000 a year operating dencit, and what would the expenditures reach in twenty years? Mr. Col- lins was int@ested in knowing the assessed value of the island. As- sessed value is $636,200, and actu- al value $3,181.000. With a bridge, property values could easily double. Actually, there are as many property owners on Har- stine (if not more) than anywhere in the county. Harstine Island , which is next to Vashon in size in lower Puget Sound. has the potential of be- coming the greatest asset in Ma- son County. Because of it's clean, quiet-waters, mild climate and se- rene beauty, it has attracted hundreds of people who plan on making it their "Retirement Haven". Besides those from our own state, many from other states. bare property on the island and plan to improve their property. How refreshing to know that most of these property owners planning to retire on our beautiful island, are business and professional people, of high caliber, who will become a real asset to our com- nnmity. Shelton will realize much business as well as prestige from such newcomers. Many small industries will thrive on the island when tile bridge becomes a reality. It will give the islanders a real boost, for they have known many hardships through the years, because of poor accessability. To develop one part of the county, brings beneficial results to the rest. Why not make , trip to the mlan,t, I'm sure you will be welcomed, and see what Harstine Island has to offer?
