Have you ever found yourself in the frustrating position of going to vote, only to be faced with unfamiliar names for some posts up for election, making it impossible to cast an intelligent vote? You either take a guess and hope you've voted for the best candidate, or you don't cast a vote for anyone. To avoid such a situation in next month's general election, the North Mason PTA is offering you a chance to meet the candidates who will be running opposed on November 2. This includes one of the three positions open for the local School Board, for which three candidates have filed, the three commission posts of the Belfair Cemetery district for which there are four contenders, and the two open spots on the Allyn Port District commission, each being contested by two men. Also on the agenda will be a representative of Fire district 5 to explain the purpose of the $160,000 special levy which will be on the ballot in November. Since all the candidates are local people, running for local district offices, it is possible you already know all of them personally and have a good idea for whom you wish to vote. But if you find some of the names unfamiliar, it would be worth your while to attend the October 14 meeting of the PTA to learn the issues and meet the candidates so you can cast an informed vote. For residents of the Grapeview School district, a chance to meet both the candidates for the contested position on the Grapeview School Board will be available at two meetings at Mason Lake. (See Mason Lake Meandering column.) Commissioners of local districts, in most cases, are responsible for spending part of your tax money. You owe it to yourself to see that you choose wisely when you go to the polls. Member resigns advisory position Editor, Huckleberry Herald: For those interested in fishing, want some statistics? The record shows Sport Fishermen caught 93,700 salmon in Puget Sound during 1968 and Commercial Fishermen caught, (hold on) 1,921,827 salmon, or over 95% of the entire datch in Puget Sound. IS THIS FAIR to the Sportsmen? Why does the State Fisheries Department allow this unfair condition to exist? It is planned to organize 350,000 sport fishermen of Washington into a political vote-getting association and demand a fair distribution of the salmon that belong to ALL the people. Our own lobby will represent us in Olympia. For $1 you can become a member of the Olympia Fish and Game Protective Association - membership applications are now available at the Tahuya Grocery. Join now as we did; we need you! Lennia Cates Editor, Huckleberry Herald: Just a note of thanks for the lovely article in the Sept. 16 issue of the "Herald". I hope that through our efforts more people in Mason County will become aware of the needs these lonely servicemen must have. This year, as last, I will be looking forward to receiving the Herald. Though many have dubbed it as an oversized gossip sheet, to one who is lucky to be home three months of the year (and that is rare) it is an enjoyable way to keep in touch with old friends and classmates. Even the student nurses at the center find it delightful. Keep up the good work! Emily Meyer One of the Kitsap County members of the Tri-County Hood Canal Advisory Board has announced his resignation from the Board with the charge that the group is a figurehead intended more to protect local prerogatives from the state than to get anything done. Jay Roof, a Poulsbo lawyer, contends that the Board is limited to inquiring into matters requested by the County Commissioners of the three Counties surrounding Hood Canal but that they never request anything. About all the council has left is holding dinner meetings and listening to guest speakers, he said. It has become a figurehead in case the state might ask "Are you doing anything to protect Hood Canal?" Roof said. He claimed the Board's ineffectiveness was increased last year when the bylaws were rewritten to prevent its members from speaking either publicly or privately on any issue involving Hood Canal, other than those on which a Board of County Commissioners sought information or a decision.

Ted and his wife, Wyn, have three children, Krysia 7, Allison 5, and Forrest 2. Ted's long-term interest in education and his desire to become involved in a significant We have a very important decision to make in November and that is to elect a new school board member. We only have three in this district and they are elected for a two year term, so it's important to know the men running for this position. Ted Hoffman from Mason Lake and Stuart Marks from Grapeview are the candidates and we would like you to attend our Women's Fire Aux. meeting on October 27th and the MBC Club the 8th to meet both candidates. Here is a little background on Ted Hoffman. He hails from Grays Harbor where he was graduated from Hoquiam High School and attended Grays Harbor Junior College for two quarters before enlisting in the Army. He served in the far east during the Korean conflict. Upon completion of his service commitment he entered the University of Washington where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree and a teaching certificate. During part of his undergraduate training he was employed by the Seattle Children's Home as a recreation supervisor and house father. He was later employed by the Fisheries Research Institute of the University and worked for the Institute in Alaska and Seattle. Upon graduation from the University he taught biology at Mercer Island High School. Ted returned to the University of Washington to work toward his graduate degree. During this period he was employed as a research assistant for the Laboratory of Radiation Biology. After completing his community service prompted him to run for the school board position. He feels that the Grapeview School provides a fine education for the children of the district and he would like to take an active part in helping to continue this tradition. __. See Louise Ewart's column for a similar sketch of Stuart Marks, the other candidate, who hails from Grapeview. My mother, Klm Kimmel and I had a family reunion last week. This sounds like a big deal, but actually there are only four of us. We used to have a large family but now just Mom, my mother's sister Hattie Roach, and our cousin Velma Kramer are all that are left. They stayed three days and we really had fun. From someone who has never won anything, I write this with great envy (we need a boat also). John Knapp, new resident at the Sugar Shack on the Cove at Mason Lake won 1st prize in the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard fishing derby this year. He caught a 28 lb. Salmon off Jap Point lteztksor, kn tlt~metton, l~urte, ta~. ~erCte.~s "~exe helcl in Bremexton Sept. 29 with the Rev. Melvin Unruh of Summit Avenue United Presbyterian Church officiating. Mr. Bressler was born Dec. 10, 1892, in Eureka, S.D. He moved to Bismarck, S.D., where he was reared and educated. He was married in Aberdeen, S.D. to Alma Trouse, on Oct. 12, 1921. She preceeded him in death on Sept. 1 6, 1 966. He married Antionette Richards in Port Orchard, June 17, 1967. He worked as a steamfitter and plumber for various firms, and was employed during World War II at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. Mr. Bressler was past commander of American Legion, Post 149; past commander of World War I Veterans, Barracks No. 358, Retsil; past member of the Bremerton Selective Service board, and past member Plumbers and Steamfitters Union. Local 631. He is survived by his wife, Antionette, of the family home; two daughters, Mrs. Austin (Betty) Clark, and Mrs. Charles (Beverly) Haselwood, both of Bremerton; two stepsons, Hobson E. Richards, of Manchester, Alan D. Richards, stationed with the Air Force in North Carolina; two stepdaughters, Mrs. M. D. (Ellamae) Morgan, Grapeview, and Mrs. William (Ann) Bailey., Port Orchard; 20 grandchildren; 8 great grandchildren; two brothers Jim Meisner of Hardy, Ark., John Meisner of Bismarck, N.D.; and a CoIoduI leaves, crks9 ff~ghts, briBiant sunshine aria arenching rains.., all these factors effect our annual grape harvest and this year the harvest is just getting underway. Each year, too, there are fewer grapes as the grape lands are slowly being built up by the homes of newcomers to our area. When the grapes are just right to be picked signs will appear at the main roads. Mr. and Mrs. McGuire decided to have a few neighbors on Orchard Beach in for coffee and cake to celebrate their 55th wedding anniversary and when the guests and the couple's son and daughter and families came to call there were twenty-five guests, and a festive celebration followed. A contest has developed for the position on the Grapeview School Board due to the retirement of board chairman, Don Pogreba. Two fine young men are running for the position. Ted Hoffman of Mason Lake and Stuart Marks of Grapeview. Jeannine Peterson has a profile on Mr. Hoffman this week and I have a few facts on Stuart Marks for you. Mr. Marks was originally from Montana, and received his college degree in Texas. He is employed at the Navy Yard in Bremerton as a planner and estimator and has been in this area since 1958. Mr. and Mrs. Marks have three children in the Grapeview School and two more to start in a few years. Their childrens' ages are 10, 8, 6, 5, and 3. So you see, Mr. Marks has a bova in ~temerton th~ X~,~. of September. ~ig 'otother lay is so proud of her and tries so hard to help take care of her. Our 4-H girls who demonstrated at the Fair gave the sew-and-so's something to be proud of and did the double job of making leader and mother Patty Pettitt proud of the results. Anita Pettitt placed second and won a red ribbon for her "suprise muffins with each muffin having a different flavoring in each one, such as jam, walnuts, orange peel and so on. Peri Pettitt won a green participation ribbon for her demonstration on how to diaper a baby four ways. It is a little difficult to write news that is coming up that depends on the weather such as the car wash that is scheduled for Saturday if it doesn't rain. So by the time you read this there will either have been a car wash or it was rained out. The car wash was to raise funds for the local 4-H group for extras. The Stretch Island bridge looks like it will be in the news again and certainly poses some questions. Tentative plans call for a wood bridge built on the old pilings which will be treated with something that is supposed to make it last 50 years. If it is that strong, to make the pilings last, what will it do to the shellfish and marine life in the area? Because the tidal action will carry the chemical all over the area. I see by the Tacoma paper that plans are going ahead to condemn the sister, Mrs. Eleanora Surrer, vital interest in the school for property needed for the acrss from Seabeck.
