Curiosity of onlookers was aroused when the Hesse brothers of North Shore pulled into the service station in Tahuya to put air into an inner-tube almost bigger than the car to which it was tied. Photo by Lennia Cares. i . % < . By JEANNINE PETERSON -- 426-38 15 Dog is man's best friend? More like man is dog's best friend in the case of Tom Brokaw versus his dog last week. Tom's German Shepherd became involved in a vicious fight with Jerry Brook's German Shephard and Tom tried to break it up.

The September meeting of the MBC Club is this Friday the 10th, don't miss it. A family new, not only to Benson Lake but to the Northwest, is the Wood family. They have five boys, one Jr. High age, and four in Grapeview. Richard and Ione Wood and all the little Woods hail from Memphis, Tennesee.

The back roads of North Mason, whether on State-owned lands or on property belonging to timber companies or Christmas tree farmers, have long been a favorite spot for motorcycles and jeep drivers. This new law passed in the '71 legislative session will require ATV licenses for riding on most of them. Motorcycles or jeeps which keep to the main County or State roads will not will be used for costs of administering the new amendatory act, about one-fourth will go to the counties and a little over half will be put in the State outdoor recreation fund. Agents of the Washington State Patrol, County sheriff's departments, municipal police, State Game, State Parks and State Fisheries departments and State Dept. of Natural Resources will all take part in enforcing the law. (Editor's note: Unless your name is Pope, Talbot or Simpson, you'd better buy a tag before heading for the back trails.)

Because enough funds have accumulated in the bond fund to make the next two yearly payments due on the $22,500 bond issue approved by the voters, the commissioners voted to forego collecting the .43 mill in 1972. These funds are not transferable so could not be used for any other purpose than to pay off the bond issue.
