A WARNING SHOULD BE HEEDED Pioneer district residents should heed the warn- SELECT GROUP--Other members of a very elite "club", representatives of Mason County eating es- tablishments which had already earned the Mason- Thurston Health District's ='Merit Award", gather- ed around Lois Reed and Walt Mille as they ac- cepted the certificates signifying that Lake Cush- man Resort and Millo's Diner (at Potlatch) had qualified for the coveted honor. Dr. John V. Des- haye (left), district health officer, and Harold Amundsen (right), supervising sanitarian, present- ed the certificates. Looking on were Paul Locke (Ming Tree Cafe), A. C. Robinson, district, advisory sanitarian, Jim Wing (Sea Fare), and Dorothy Hil- derman (Heinie's Broiler). These three restaurants, along with The Cottage Care (not represented in the picture) had earned Merit Awards earlier with- in the past year. The awards are earned only when an eating establishment has scored at least 90 of a possible 100 points in three consecutive sur- prise inspections (including a mandatory dishwash- ing test scored at eight points). Beyond meeting all regular public health regulations, the Merit Award requ=res the passing of certain aesthetic standards for neatness of appearance of both prem- ises and personnel, general conduct of personnel and treatment of customers, plus extra sanitation precautions above and beyond the minimum re- quirements. Altogether there are 25 different cate- gories on which Merit Award scoring is based, Mason County has an exceptionally large percen- tage of its eating establishments qualifying for Merit Award certificates, according to Gerhard Ness, semor sanitarian for this district under whose supervision the tests are conducted. ing which the destruction by fire of the Harry Clark home on Spencer Lake sounded very plainly a few days back. It should prove beyond doubt the need for a properly equipped local fire district to protect the community. It is not so much what the fire did, which was tragic enough in its complete destruction of a fine home nicely furnished, as what else it threatened to do in the process. In a wooded, brushy area such as is the general nature of the Pioneer-Agate-Pickering section, the danger of a burning residence spreading fire to the surrounding acreage is great, especially in the dry season. Such a conflagration could quickly get beyond control, spread over wide areas and destroy other homes as well. That is where a near-by, properly equipped, well-trained fire fighting squad could be of great value to the community. It might not save all the burning homes to which it would be called but it could certainly do much to save others which might be endangered by brush and forest ]ires started from them. Pioneer district residents would be wise to hasten with completion of plans already formed, but apparently now hanging in suspension, to create a local fire protection dis- trict. THE FAIR AND ITS :NEW HOME Mason County's annual fair opens its gates tomorrow morning in a brand new environment. Ensconsed for many years in beautiful but off-the- beaten-track Shelton Valley, the fair has moved to more centralized and easier-to-reach surroundings at the Shelton airport. This move had a double-ended purpose--to make the fair more convenient to the public, and conversely, to entice the public to give the fair greater support. That the fair .truly needs greater public support is obvious, realizing the cost of constructing new buildings, preparing the new site, and just the costs of moving in gen- eral. Besides needing stronger public support, the fair de- serves it. This is a worthwhile community project bringing into spotlight the best our own people produce through their own efforts. Handiwork and skills of the younger gener- ation, exemplified through the boys and girls of the 4-H clubs of the county, and the older gen- erations, principally through the granges, but also other organizations, are given center-stage atten- tion. In addition, commercial booths also exhibit many of the products sold by this community's fine stores, alld there are games to play, rides to enjoy, and good old farmstyle cook- ing to eat. Let's go, neighbors. You'll enjoy it! To Late To Glassify ESTATE BEING SETTLED -- We have to offer: A remarkably fine Waterfront Home at an unprecedent- ed price.

TOO? PUD as similar as this one is tc VIr Bill Dickie, Editor ['he Journal 3helton, Wash. 9ear Bill : A headline seen recently in the 2entra]ia Daily Chronicle would rove brought Shelton to its feet ,heering, had it appeared in the helton-Mason County Journal. Phe headline read "Lower Rates &re Ordered by P,U.D.", and the rticle which followed stated: "Lewis County's PUD is drop- )in K its electric rates starting Yriday for more than 4000 resi- tential, commercial and industrial mstomers, it was announced by PUD Chairman R. A. Perkins. "The board members estimated an annual savings total of $78.000 or PUD customers on a compar- ison with 1962 revenues "PUD leaders said other rate reductions have been made in re- :ent years but none of the cuts ba.ve covered as many categories af customers. Perkins said residential custo- mers will enjoy a 15 percent eut on all usage in excess of 1.000 kilowatt hours per month. The new rate will be 8%& mills instead )f 1 cent per KWH after 1,000 KWH usage. Since PUD billings are bi-monthly, residential custo- mers can figure a 15 percent re- duction on the amount above $20. "The annual savings amount to $38.000 for residential customers, $22.000 for commercial users and $18,000 to industrial users. "Perkins said the reductions are made possible by the gradual con]- )letion of the rehabilitation of the district's properties and the in- creased usage of electric energy by the consumers 'The PUD could continue the same rates and retire debt ahead of schedule, but the commission feels that reasonable rates witl debt retirement on schedule is fairer to the present consumers,' Perkins stated. '"The PUD enjoys a healthy fi- nancial position and has accumu- lated adequate cash reserves, which, in the opinion of the PUD's consulting engineers, makes these changes possible without having an adverse effect upon future op- erations of the district.' "The rate reduction follows a $90.000 cut in the commercial rate in 1959, and a $73.000 cut in the residential rate last year, making a total of $241,000 in rate reduc- tions since 1959, Perkins conclud- ed." This sort of statement from a ours. raises a very strong questioI as to why our Mason County PUI: commissioners have not follows( suit. Hasn't our PUD also enjoyed a healthy financial position ? Has n't it also accumulated adequat( cash reserves? Isn't it also ap preaching completion of the reha. bilitation of the district's proper ties? And hasn't our usage of electric energy by the consumers also increased ? The answers to all these ques. tions are obviously affirmativ( and are. in fact, the very claims our commissioners have used tc support their bids for re-election Our PUD's total assets at the eric of June were listed as over 3 million dollars which represents an earned surplus of over 2/ million Our bond debts which have totalled over 2 million have now been decreased to less than $750.000. Cash reserves are substantial, the facilities are in good condition, and the new office building should be adequate for many year's growth. The system is expanding constant- ly, with over 40 new accounts in the month of June alone. And yet Shelton is rated by the Federal Power Commission as having the highest typical light bills of any city in the State of Washington with population over 2500. It may be said that the Lewis County reduction is small and ap, plies only to certain users, but no- tice that this is the third reduc- tion in four years, and incidentally is on a rate structure which STARTED lower than ours. This general'policy reflects an attitude of fairness to the "present con- sumer" which has not been evi- dent in Mason County. Someday your readers will see the same headline in the Journal. but it should not come as any great surprise package. The event is too long overdue. Very truly yours, Robert S. Holt 223 West I Street NICE PEOPLE To the Editor: The management and labor of both PUD No. 3 and No. 1 de- serve more public thanks and rec- ognition for the time and work they donated to put power lines in to the new Mason County Fair Grounds. To me this was just another way of showing what fine organ- izations our Mason County PUDs are. Thank you. John C.
