How many YOU liave this summer, on the highways of North Mason or on the water? Coming up this Friday is the last BIG weekend of the year when people will outnumber the clams and it will seem like everyone of them is driving a motorcycle, a camper or a boat. Failure to obey speed laws or water safety rules could mean a tragic ending to the summer for any one of us. 1 know the curves on South Shore can be taken with no trouble at all at a faster rate of speed than the posted 40-mile an hour limit. But the slower-than-usual speed for a State highway is not because the curves are unmanageable at 50 miles an hour, it is because on every curve and a few feet beyond every curve there are driveways from which cars may be backing out onto the roadway or getting a slow start after stopping at the top of a steep hill to check the traffic. At 40 miles an hour you might have a chance to stop in time if you round a curve and come upon a car just entering the highway: at 50 miles an hour you probably won't. North Shore has the same hazardous driveway or garage-on-the edge-of-the-road situation. Up in the hills, the roads leading to the many lakes has a different hazard possibility around every curve; there may be one or two deer standing in the roadway. Deer cause several accidents in the North Mason area every year. Then there are the bicyclists whose numbers increased considerably this summer. If you round a curve and come upon a bicycle rider in your lane and a car coming toward you in the other lane, what do you do if you're going too fast to stop? If you're lucky enough to reach your property safely, don't push your luck by water-skiing without an observer; you can't watch the skier and where you're going at the same time and could run over a swimmer or hit a dock while you're checking to see if the skier is still there. And don't let Junior take the boat out to run in close circles to see how fast he can go without tipping the boat over, or how close he can come to a skier without hitting him. Do you have lights on your boat? If not, don't take it out after dark. You may think your motor is loud enough to warn other boats of your position but their own motors, even if quieter, will drown out the sound of yours and they won't know you're around until they hit you. Motor bikes or motorcycles are illegal on County roads unless operated by someone with a special driver's permit on license and helmets are a must according to law. Did you know that? From the number of ten-year olds scooting around the countryside without hehnets there are a lot of people who don't know it. Or don't Care. kers all do our part to make sure no accident mars the last holiday weekend of the summer. CHEERLEADERS OF NORTH MASON High School met the new Bulldog mascot at a luncheon last Thursday at the Presley home in Grapeview. Not all the cheerleaders could attend; those present included (standing, !eft to right) Joni Slagle, Kathie Johnson and Kay Schillinger. members of the Varsity squad and (kneeling) Cheri Yoest, Karen Beeson and Karen Schillinger, Jr. Varsity members. Debbie Presley, in the Bulldog costume, is the mascot. She and Gwen Pederson made the bulldog head of papier macho. Hot lunch schedule given No levy funds will be used for the program, but if enough students participate it is hoped that a hot lunch program at North Mason schools will finance itself and hot lunches will be available when school reopens next week. Mrs. Joy DeVault will be cook with assistants Mrs. Joan Fowler and Mrs. Loretta Hodge. With the aid of State funds new equipment has been purchased which will allow elementary students to receive the same hot lunches as the older children, with the exception of the special hamburger lunch. In previous years the lower school has had to partake of packaged lunches if they bought lunch. This year hot food will be served from portable trays. On the menu the first week will be: Wednesday, Sept. 8 Macaroni and cheese Hot buttered peas Jelto salad Hot rolls Peach upside-down cakemilk Thursday, Sept. 9 Split pea soup Grilled cheese sandwich Carrot and raisin salad Peanut butter cookies milk ~lqe~_~, many o~ our summex people had to head back to the ciW this week as schools in other areas opened yesterday - our own have a week's reprieve. Most of those who headed home will be back for the last holiday week-end but it appears summer is just about over sad but true[ A few fish (,darn few) being caught. Wendell Mc(;inness got a 15 pounder at Hoodsport one morning last week using herring and 4 ounces of lead. Don [luson picked tip a beautiful 26 pounder about 8:30 one night in front of the hatchery he was going deep using 16 ounces of lead with 40 pound test and whole herring. If you plan fishing that area bc prepared for lots of goop on the water plus a maze of shrimp pots right in the popular fishing spots - there oughta be a law'? The John Schafcrs have been spending some time at their place at Maggie Lake after a three-week visit in California. Ittlgh Lane and his family ended up a two-week stay at MagNe Lake - ditto the Miles. Dr. (;entry and his fanfily have been up from California.

The pickup was damaged to the extent of $800. Friday, Sept. 10 Spanish rice Green beans Lettuce and tomato salad with dressing Chocolate cake Milk Miss Ton} Smith. a North Mason High School teacher. organized a cultural weekend for fellow teachers and students who were interested in attending the Oregon Shakespearean Festival. an annual summer event held in Ashland. The group traveled to Ashland on Friday, August 20th., and attended that evening's performance of Macbeth and Saturday evening's performance of Henry IV at the Outdoor Elizabethan stagehouse. The Saturday matinee performance of Midsummer Night's Dream was held in the indoor theater. The outdoor stage is patterned after the Fortune Theatre of 1599 London, according to the historical charm of the setting. While waiting for the play to begin each evening the audience was entertained by the Tudor Fair with its musicians, singers and dancers-on-the-green who strolled and danced their way through the softly-lit theater gardens. Those from the Belfair area who attended the event-filled weekend were Toni Smith, Jan Johnson, Laura Allen, Barbara Schultz, Cheryl Palmer, Debbie Hoyt, Maria Schaeffer, Jan Lackey, Joan Burrell, Peggy Davis, Kathy Polhamus and Brian Johnson. From Ashland Toni Smith flew to California to visit her grandmother. Then she will fly to Spokane to visit with her parents ] ohnson have put in a busy summer going to the University of Washington where they are working on their Masters Degrees. Mr. Bob Averill of Twanoh Tides was once spending a lot of time commuting between his home on the canal and New York City where he had his management consultant office. He did this for four years, but in June he moved his office to his home. He says he is doing a great business. Mr. Averill brought it to my attention that the Belfair area has a lot of business industry that we take for granted and fail to take into full account. It isn't the secluded canal area we sometimes like to believe and we are usually glad we have the many business conveniences that we have. However, thank heavenswe've nine months when it seems secluded and quiet between summers! We're glad to hear that Mrs. Harold Staley is home from the hospital and is doing fine. It's a sad end of summer for four-year old Tammie Goddard who recently suffered a broken big toe when she fell off the seawall while visiting her Grandma's house.

They covered the areas in and around Lebanon and Albany but when the temperatures remained in the 100's. they headed for Huntington State Park on the ocean and then after a week long stay there, they visited the Crater Lake area. They had a good time except for the disappointment of having their trailer broken into and having Mrs. Palmer's wallet taken. It put a damper on their spirits to say the least! When the Pahners arrived home it was in time for Mrs. Palmer to go into Bremerton to help her sister's family, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Heard, care for their new son. Master Cameron Lynn Heard was born on August 16th weighing a grand 8 Ibs. 13 oz. and was 21% inches tall! Master Cameron has four older brothers between the ages of 16 and 8. Whew!
