Was delighted to see where Stuart Marks will be running for a school board position for Grapeview, Mr. and Mrs. Marks and their nice family are a real asset to our community. Mr. Don Pogreba has certainly him a word of thanks for his community service over the last several years as chairman of the school board. Grapeview is happy to welcome Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Hatch as permanent residents after several years of spending as much time here as possible. Mr. Hatch retired on June 30 as Electrical Chief of the city of Aberdeen and they were settled in their home in Grapeview on July 3. In August they had a pleasant surprise when friends from Houston, Texas arrived for a visit, Brad and Mary Lou Olive. August 23 the Hatches flew to Hawaii, and were guests of Lt. Col. and Mrs. Neil Herrick for a week. The Herricks are Grapeviewites and own a home on Treasure Island. He has his Army duty as Trippler Hospital in Honolulu and is an associate medical professor for the University of Hawaii. While there the Hatches were invited to an Aloha party given by Major General Hughes (commanding general U. S. Army Corps. of the Pacific). The party was a lovely affair with the ladies in Muu-muus and the men in aloha shirts, and was held at Trippler Army Center. Col. Herrick arranged, through Admiral Clarey's staff, a trip aboard the 14th Naval District boat and circled Ford Island, the Island of December r/I t w rCalmlk i-n,s CHANNEL MASTER ANTENNAS SERVICE ON ALL MAKES Have Tubes- Will Travel CR 5-6244 HOURS: 10 - 6:30 DALLY -- SAT, ONI~.Y: 10 - 1:30 Page 8 - Huckleberry Herald section of Shelton-Mason County Journal - September 23, 1971 7th, 1941 destruction. They found going aboard the battleship Arizona a most impressive experience, and said the battleship could be easily seen in " the water with oil still floating to the surface. The Herricks drove the Hatches around Oahu Island twice enjoying the interesting sights. While there, Chief W. R. Cogdill (Brother of Mrs. Ellis Thomas of Grapeview) flew in aboard a navy plane on which he is a flight engineer. He has had Navy duty in Hawaii on and off throughout his thirty years as a Navy career man and knew a lot of interesting spots.

In the North Mason area I think that old saying should be changed to read "A dog's best friend is man." Maybe the people around here are no different from people in other areas; maybe people everywhere are partial to news or stories of dogs. I thought it might be interesting to my readers to know that the column on Freckles, our big three-legged dog, which ran two weeks ago in this column brought more comments to my ear than any other column I've written except for an editorial and column on a personal family tragedy shortly after I became editor. Everywhere I went last week, whether putting groceries in my shopping basket, ordering lunch, attending an evening meeting or just sitting in the office, someone would take time to come up and tell me how much they enjoyed reading about Freckles, sometimes adding some bits of information about their own dogs. My mother-in-law and my husband both asked me to have a large picture made of his photo; our kids' pictures have been in the paper several times and they've never asked for a copy of those. One of my neighbors, who knows Freckles personally, said she had cut the article out to save. In the same issue a short notice appeared reading: BLACK PUP FOUND A black dachshund puppy was found near St. Alban's Girl Scout camp Sept. 3 and turned in to the Belfair office of the Sheriff's Dept. Things won't be the same around there until the owner claims him, which deputies and dispatcher hope will be SOON. (Editor's note: in fact, they'll probably let ANYONE claim him.) I had just returned from the local Sheriff's office when I wrote the above. I had dropped in to get the latest news, mostly lost or found items I use for short filler material, and had met the little puppy. He really didn't fit into a business office. While Onie Sande, the dispatcher, went through the card file in search of news items she put the puppy on the counter so he wouldn't run out the open door. He had a great time running back and forth across my notebook, biting my hand or chewing on my pen. While I was still there two girls and a dog came in. They had had their bicycles stolen from near Twanoh State Park and were walking back to Bremerton and had stopped in to give their addresses in case their bikes were found. The little puppy barked excitedly at the other dog and would have toppled off the counter onto its head if I hadn't caught it by the chain around his neck and held him back. For the ten or fifteen minutes the girls were in the office finishing their business and Onie and a deputy were filling out the report, I kept one finger tucked in the chain to keep the little dog out of reach of the bigger dog. (Maybe he thought HE was bigger because he was looking down on the other dog.) Poor Onie. She either had to do everything with just one hand while she carried the pup in one arm or let him run loose on the counter where he got into everything. Which explains the editor's note at the end of the item, which, in my opinion gave the impression that the little dog was sort of a nuisance, which was the impression I had of him. So who would think that anyone would read about him and want to own such a spirited nuisance? But people did. Three calls came in to the Sherift s office offering a home to the little puppy and all three already had a dog. But none of them got him. The puppy had been sent to the Neal McLean residence in Allyn till the owner claimed it, which never happened, and a daughter, Jean, couldn't part with him and took him to Tacoma to live in her boarding house while she trains to be a nurse. Despite the fact that the first night in the McLean home he wrecked havoc with a pile of newly ironed clothes. I'll bet he livens up THAT boarding house. There seems to be something about a dog... CORRECTION The annual budget meeting of the Allyn Port District will be Friday, Sept. 24, at 8 p.m. in the Belfair Firehall. Last week's Herald carried the wrong date in a small news item. BOAT FOUND A red and white Pacific Mariner boat drifted to shore on September 18 about six miles out South Shore. Owner may contact the Belfair Sheriff's office. Gun safety course set locally for nder 18' A Firearms Safety Course for persons 18 and under will be taught by Don V.

North Shore resident celebrates 93 years Members of a Birthday Club which was formed four years ago met at Swanson's Grocery on North Shore last Monday to honor their oldest member, Rosa Mondart Swanson, 93. Mrs. Swanson was born in 1878 in East Baton Rouge, Louisiana of French parents. She lived in the south, in Mississippi and Arkansas until 1923 when she moved with her family to Longview, Wash. Her husband, Swan E. Swanson, died in 1925. Since 1938 "Grandma" has made her home with her son, Ecker, and his wife, Donna. In 1954 they moved to North Shore. Moving to a new community at her age was difficult for Mrs. Swanson, but she gradually made new friends and became an active pinochle player with her neighbors, even joining a pinochle club. She still plays her favorite card game. Besides Ecker, Mrs. Swanson has another son, Albert, who is married and lives in Beaverton, Ore. While he was living in Florida with his family, his mother made several plane trips to visit. She has three grandsons; Giles, of Aberdeen, Byron of Portland, Ore., and Kent of Beaverton, Ore. She also has four great- grandchildren. Mrs. Trevor (Bess) Lewis, whose real birthdate was during the summer, waited to celebrate her birthday with "Grandma." Their beautifully decorated cake was furnished by Lenna Fortman and Virginia Rommen. elton- Mason County Journal Thursday, September 23, 1971 TWO HONORED GUESTS at last Monday's birthday celebration admire the cake baked and decorated in their honor. Mrs. Trevor (Bess) Lewis waited to celebrate her birthday with Rosa (Grandma) Swanson, who turned 93 that day. Changes suggested for County zoning ordinance About 35 persons showed up at the informal meeting to discuss the proposed County zoning ordinance with County Planner Jim Connolly and four members of the Planning Commission last Monday night. And the planners, when the meeting was over around 11:30 p.m., had a list of suggested changes or additions to contemplate before the final draft is presented for approval. One of the first suggestions offered, which was supported by several members of the audience, was to increase the minimum lot size in agricultural and forestry zones to five acres from the present minimum of one acre. Connolly said he had been for a five-acre minimum but this was one point which had been argued pro and con by the Planning Commission at great length and his view had lost. One of the reasons for the smaller size was to make land in these zones available to more people; it was felt that taxes on five acres would eliminate ownership by many who could afford only one acre. "Make a tax adjustment," suggested the author of the five-acre minimum request. Everybody laughed. She, and others, felt the one-acre minimum would defeat the purpose of the zones, to leave green belts in the County. The possibility of banning any homes in the forestry zone will be considered. The time limit mentioned in a couple of sections of the ordinance were criticized and the Board agreed the audience had a good point and those would be reviewed. For instance: "If any nonconforming use of land ceases for any reason for a period of more than 30 days, any subsequent use of such land shall conform to the regulations specified by this title for the district in which such land is located."It was felt that businesses which operate only during the summer would be adversely affected by these rules. "There are three pages devoted to parking and nothing to fire protection," complained Chief Dick Knight of Fire District 5. He presented the Board with a copy of the zoning ordinance which he had marked to correct this oversight. "Under Planned Unit Development you list many things which will be required, like areas for outdoor recreation, adequate car storage, plantings to enhance the grounds, etc. but you don't mention one word about any need for fire protection facilities." He also felt it should be mentioned, under rules applying to explosive storage, junk yards, "or boat storage that these require permits from the local fire districts. The Board did not agree on this point, stating that almost anything in the zoning ordinance required other permits from various County, State, federal or local officials and they could not list them all.
