Wooten Lake Speed Control Is Opposed Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Veitch appeared at the Mason County Commissioners' meeting on Monday to present the board with a petition in opposition to Marvin Haydon's request to reduce the boating speed to eight miles per hour on Wooten Lake. Haydon explained at last week's meeting that residents o~ the lake were having trouble with big boats going too fast. Mr. and Mrs. Veitch presented the board with their petition signed by 16 residents of the lake and added that Mr. Haydon did not speak for all of the people on the lake. The couple felt that reducing the speed limit to eight miles per hour on the lake would take many children out of healthy recreation like skiing, and put them on the streets and highways. They also suggested that hours might be established for the various uses of the lake, so that everyone would have a chance to enjoy the lake in their own way. Kitsap County has restricted all but two of its lakes, Mr. Veitch said, which added problems to the Mason County lakes nearby. The commissioners said that the entire Mason Couuty Boating Ordinance needs revamping, and that they will keep in mind the thoughts of the residents of the lake when the ordinance is rewritten.

Page 2 - Shelton-Mason County Journal - Thursday, July 29, 1971 Live Music, Flicks Headline Inn Program Friday By CHARLES GAY Live music, movies and voter registration headline this weekend's activities at Inn Quest, Shelton's fledgling youth center. Mike Gibson, center director, has been appointed a voter registrar, and will sign up all those over 18 who are elegible to vote. Also upcoming is a rummage sale to raise money for the operation of Inn Quest, which is wobbling along on slim donations. Persons with items to donate to the sale may leave them at the center building, Highway 101 and Ellinor, Shelton, or phone 426-3911 to arrange for pickup. Monday night's board meeting saw discussion of the problems that have come up during the first three weeks' operation. One of the main problems to date has been irresponsible behavior by pre-teens. Which brought up the question of age limit on people going to Inn Quest. Directors don't want to have to set an age limit because it is difficult to determine age and because there are exceptions to the fact that most pre-teen youngsters are not responsible. There are exceptions to the fact that most teenagers are responsible, too, however. Inn Quest would like to issue a plea to the parents to have their children under 13 home by ten o'clock. Gibson stated that the members at the meeting decided that pre-teenagers would be welcome until ten o'clock and that the music and program after that time is directed at the older age group. The 50 cent cover charge for nights with live music has been dropped and a donation basis has taken its place. This should encourage anyone and everyone who wants to come. Every night from 4:00 until 8:00 p.m., there is a person at Inn Quest to take telephone calls. The number is 426-3911. Live music and movies headline the program this Friday night. The Inn Quest opens at 2:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday afternoons and closes from 5:00 until 6:00 p.m. each day to encourage people to go home for dinner. Then it opens at 6:00 p.m. to stay open until 2 a.m. Music usually starts around nine o'clock. About 250 visited the center last weekend, proof of its popularity. It has been "a place to go" for hundreds in its brief existence. All those who have donated are thanked for their contributions. Donations are the only thing that can keep the program going.
