" Section of the Shelton- " Mason County Journal By JEANNINE PETERSON -- 426-3815 Thursday, October 14, 1971 The MBC held its monthly meeting last Friday and it was a very informative one. Lou Donnell was the Special Chairman for the program, introducing the special guests. First on the agenda, and certainly of interest to everyone on Mason and Benson Lakes, was Dick Knight, our District 5 Fire Chief• He explained the $160,000 levy that will be asked for on the November ballot. A bond issue was refused by the voters last November and as a result we were left with a 30 year old fire engine and over $1,000 had to be spent on it to even keep it running this year, with many other repairs still needed. With this ONE YEAR levy, Mason Lake would realize a new fireball, 7:30 p.m. October 27. The next guests presented by Lou were Ted Hoffman, candidate for the Grapeview School Board and his opponent, Stuart Marks, from Grapeview. Each one gave a profile of his background and reason for applying for this oosition. Both candidates -expressed a-plenty! All this for $5 a couple• Don't miss it. (you don't have to come in costume, but it is fun if you can). Last Saturday night was the 1st "MBC Family night". Fifty six attended, including six children, and it was a great success... Hot dogs, homemade pies, coffee and pop for the kids satisfaction in the education being were enjoyed during the evening• provided for their children by the Grapeview School district. They both are against consolidation with another district. Hoffman said he had gone over the budget records for the past three years and felt the Board had excercised very good judgment in keeping the district on a sound financial footing. He approved of the Board's method The next MBC Family night will be November 13th. Eight O'clock is the time; come and enjoy an evening of fun. Committee heads would like to thank Pat and Bill Lewis, My.and Mrs. Wiltse and Fred Stevenson for their help last Saturday. Gadabouts for the week were Lela and A1 Rodewald who spent a week with Al's daughter, Hazel engine, more radio equipment, of building up a fund for school Baker, at Mayfield Lake. Lelaand GRAPEVIEW SCHOOL BOARD candidates Stuart Marks safety gear for the firemen and a bus replacements. Hazel canned peaches, pears, (left) and Ted Hoffman, running against each other for the sub-station and engine on the Marks, who said he has tomatoes and applesauce (someposition presently held by Don Pogreba, were guest speakers other end of the lake. This would attended several meetings of the vacation!) They enjoyed the visit, at a meeting of the Mason-Benson Center last Friday night. (See Mason Lake Meandering Column.) Grapeview School Board, too. suggested that other taxpayers in News is kinda scarce this time the district attend meetings to of year, so I would appreciate a show an interest in the type of call or a note from you. What you education children in the district, are doing is what makes this are receiving, to voice opinions column possible. and see how their tax dollars are also mean a substantial deduction in Fire Insurance for many people too, as the closer to a fire station your property is, the less you pay... For instance if you had a $20,000 policy, you would pay $ 2 7 1 i f we had NO fire Corsage-making set ONE-CAR ACCIDENT ~~~~~~~~~~~~mill~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ • By LOU DONNELL ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~u~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~tt~J~~~~~~ From time to time, in this column, I have related enjoyable things I have done, which I probably would not have been able to do if it weren't for my job as a newspaperwoman. Like dining on French gourmet food prepared by the high school French class or sipping champagne with (I should really say "in the presence: Of") the Governor• Like everything else, there are two sides to the advantages of being a journalist• There are a few things I "get to do" in my job that aren't enjoyable• Not many, I'll admit, because 98 per cent of the time it's a fun job.
