One of the above chairs is reserved for YOU for tonight's meeting of the PTA at which the local candidates being opposed in the November 2 election will appear. Will YOUR chair remain empty tonight through apathy, lack of interest in who wins the several commission posts being contested this year? Or are you concerned enough about who will have control over your tax dollars collected for local districts the next few years to spend a couple of hours meeting and listening to the candidates so you will KNOW which candidate you want to vote for in- ovember? Tonight is your chance to ask questions of the candidates so that you will be an informed voter when you cast your ballot Nov. 2. Will you be there? (Continued from page 1) property. The 50 foot waterfront property was purchased about three years ago for $20,500. Several taxpayers in the district have suggested the Board sell the property, which lies between the two pieces of property serving the public owned by the Port district, but is not adjacent to either. Between it and the land used as a boat launch area is the home and property of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Livingston. Mitchell had assured Livingston at the district's budget meeting Sept. 24 that he would never vote to condemn the Livingston property while he was on the board. Livingston, at former Board meetings, before Hillman and Mitchell were members, had asked the Board if they intended to condemn his property to give the district one continuous stretch of beach but he had never been given a definate answer. Mitchell said he had consulted the Port district's attorney and had learned that the commissioners had the power to sell the property without bids to a private party for an amount not less than 90 per cent of appraisal by a disinterested real estate appraiser. Hillman came up with a suggestion that the house on the rental property, which has recently been vacated, be offered free or at a low rent to a pensioner who would serve as watchman for Port facilities. The Board agreed that some sort of "watchman duties" would be advisable after their large outlay of money for the rebuilt pier is completed. A member of the audience, Harold Hayes, who said he lives next door to the" Pier property, said he would like to be considered as a watchman if they intended to hire one and felt his .,~'rvices would be cheaper than giving free rent to someone. He was asked to remain after the meeting to discuss his proposition. Hayes also voiced objections to plans to blacktop the small area around the pier, saying that such an act would detract from the natural setting of the site and would make it too commercial looking. His objection was accepted by the Board, which later approved a motion made by Mitchell to ask for bids to blacktop the boat launch area, to be marked into a parking lot for boat trailers and cars, and a small area across the highway from the pier property. Both Hayes and Livingston asked that landscaping of the two Port properties be considered; Livingston presented the Board with a copy of the proposed zoning ordinance for ideas on an attractive single entry with a possible screen of evergreens fronting the road. He also mentioned his opposition to wires from the light pole in the center of the launch area which cross his property. The Board agreed to look into the possibility of having PUD move the pole before blacktopping begins. Need for a comprehensive plan for the district was discussed. Additional expenses of garbage cans, pickup service, sani-can service and lights for the pier, not included in the rebuilding contract, were brought up. "I hope the people attending this meeting have seen where the money we have on hand is going and why we felt it necessary to issue the one mill levy for next year," commented Mitchell at meeting's end. Attending the meeting, in addition to persons mentioned above, were Board Chairman Bill DeMiero, representing the Belfair area, Board Secretary Ellen Palmer, Mrs. Harold Hayes, Mrs. Carol Wentlandt, Mrs. Phyllis Mustain and Del Griffey, who is opposing Hillman for his position on the Board in the November election. Livingston is running against Mitchell. On display during the month of October in the Belfair Post Office is the artwork of Mrs Ada Grigg of Grapeview. The oil paintings encompass subjects varying from animals to ships to ocean and mountain scenes. Included in the group of paintings is the favorite of the artist, one entitled "LaPush Sunset " Occasionally the self-taught artist sells one of her pictures and always the proceeds are sent to a missionary in Bolivia. According to a friend of Mrs. Grigg, the artist is very generous with her talent when it comes to a worthy cause. Such as the painting she has donated to the Beachcomber Garden Club, of which she is a member, to be sold to benefit the annual scholarship given by the group to a North Mason graduate. Several paintings have been given away and recently Mrs. Grigg exchanged one for a logger's services in cutting down two trees. Once she painted a picture of Mt. Hood, with a deer in the foreground, for a resort owner in Oregon in exchange for a week's vacation for her daughter and children.
