The "arollowYng letter was rare all blnckened and written by Ned Cokelet from water-stained with creaky wooden England to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Cokelet of Belfair. Ned and his wife, the former Kathy Lohman, both graduates of North Mason High School, are hying in Cambridge where Ned was invited to attend the University on a National Science Foundation grant. Ned was a two-time recipient of Simpson scholarships. He is working on his PHD after having earned his Master's degree in oceanography at the University of Washington this past summer• Both are graduates of the U. of W. Kathy is the Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Lohman of Belfair. Sorry to be writing so late, but getting settled is as hard as leaving. We're fine and everything's fine here. The most surprising thing is that Cambridge stairways, but then, what could be better; little maintenance and they have been this way for 400 years• It is truly beautiful to stand in the court (Great Court) of Trinity College at dusk and see the outline of the towers and buttresses. Trinity (my college) has the largest college court in the world with grass and a big fountain in the center. The center is as big as a football field. ! can walk over the very stones that Sir Issaac Newton walked over. Our flat would be considered very modern in the U.S. and if furnished with the usual U.S. appliances, it would rent for $160 a month. The building is brick. We have a hall with hooks to hang all our wet things (hasn't rained is just 14 hours from Seattle! All' yet, warm 72 degrees,) a fully it costs is a few hundred dollars! glassed-in kitchen, a medium-sized Dad, you wanted to know our living room with dining table, 2 first impressions, so here goes. First, air travel is no big deal. The plane trip is long, the leg space is short and the food is about Clark's ferry concession style ! Coming over England was nice in the early morning because we could see the towns all lit up with amber lights (because of fog.) The striking thing about London from the air was the fact that the streets all lead out from the center, none of them are straight bedrooms, bathroom with the biggest bathtub I've ever seen (it's standard in England; could make a fortune in U.S. selling long, deep bathtubs.) English people are far nicer than Americans. Can easily engage them in conversation. The countryside is very flat. Pastures, horses grazing in the town common, an open market place and bikes galore. You wouldn't believe the bikes here. They are the rustiest, dirtiest, and anmwe.rs ~isrding ~he ne~w rules applying to all-terrain vehicles was prepared by State Representative Paul H.

What kind of vehicle is an ATV? Any self-propelled vehicle that is capable of cross-country travel. Under certain conditions, all cars and trucks have this ability whether they are two-wheel drive or four wheel drive. In other words, every motor vehicle is considered an ATV. 3. My farm tractor can travel cross-country. Does it need ATV registration? Not if its being used for farming. Certain classes of vehicles are not subject to the law. No ATV registration is needed for boats, farm vehicles, logging vehicles, equipment used in construction, military or law enforcement vehicles. Snowmobiles do not need ATV registration. They must be registered under the Snowmobile Act. 4. I have a mini-bike for trail riding. Does it need ATV registration?

In this case the ATV validating tab will not be put on the license plate but on the vehicle. 12. If I have license plates on my vehicle do I have to paint this number on too? No. The license plate number will be used as the ATV number. You can leave the plate on the vehicle. Place the ATV vahdating tab on the rear plate. If you want to remove the plate, then you must paint the number on the vehicle. 13. Where do I obtain an ATV registration? Any county auditor or vehicle hcense agent will take your application. 14.

When shelves finally were built in the second-story storeroom, many of the boxes we'd left in Seattle were brought out for me to go through, to sort and save only the most important things. The kids and I didn't always see eye to eye on what was worth saving, but we did manage to get rid of enough things to fit everything into the storeroom. Except for three trunks filled with all kinds of odds and ends I'd collected through the years, including costumes or pieces of clothing or material from which costumes could easily be contrived. There just wasn't room in the storeroom for three big trunks so those remained in the basement of Roy's mother's apartment house.

Correction: In two previous articles in the Herald the dock being built on South Shore by the Gene Wards was described, incorrectly, as being 300 feet long. The pier itself is only 160 feet long, with a 1 6 foot float at the end connected by a catwalk. Ewart of Monarch Clams has agreed to visit the businesses in person with the questionnaire. At last week's meeting of the Chamber of Commerce, diane Robinson, owner of the local Two Rare Birds shop, appeared to offer several ideas on the plan. One was for a uniform color scheme for all buildings and for this she had chosen avocado green with mellow gold trim. She felt these were warm, inviting colors that fit in well with the outdoor recreation of the area. She also or three shops thought it a good idea to remodel their buildings into copies of Bavarian shops and soon, as tourist interest was aroused, more and more did the same until almost the whole section of town is now Bavarian. The increase in business has more than paid for the remodeling costs. If the merchants in Belfair wanted to make all the buildings the same style, /tiane had "remodeled" the Clothes Line.
