ocal elec" mixups By the time this issue comes out, the results of the Tuesday election will be known and printed in the Journal for all to read. As I write this, the election is still in the future, but i know of two candidates who will not take over the offices to which they aspire, no matter how many votes they get on November 2. I'm not psychic and I have no access to a crystal ball, but I know that Harold Aries, running for commissioner of the Belfair Cemetery district and Orville Kager, opposing incumbent Ted Rauschert for a seat on the Grapeview Port Board, will be "losers." Both men, whose names will appear on the ballot November 2, live outside the districts of the commission posts for which they had filed. Evidentaly no one at the County Auditor's office checked to see if they qualified as far as residency went, when they filed as candidates. Until last week's Herald came out, which described the boundary of the Belfair Cemetery district as including all four Belfair precincts, no one seemed to know for sure what the boundaries were. Harold Aries had requested a map before filing as a candidate for the Cemetery commission, but the map he was shown was so small and out-dated that he could only guess whether or not he was in the district. If he had been told that only persons voting in the four Belfair precincts were eligible, he would have known he wasn't, but no one told him that. His mailing address is Belfair and he lives within the Belfair Fire district, but he is one of a handful of voters in the Belfair Fire district who vote in the Tahuya precinct. So, living just outside the Belfair precinct, he does not qualify. Last week he was notified by the County Auditor, after she had received several inquiries about the matter from interested North Mason residents, that he would not be able to take office even if he gets a winning number of votes. Orville Kager will be out the money he spent on small cards to be passed out requesting the recipients to vote for him as commissioner of the Grapeview Port district. Port law is very specific, which the County Auditor's office should know after all the uproar over the refusal of Ed Berberet to resign from the Allyn Port district although he had moved out of the district from which he had been elected to serve. Why no one bothered to ask just where in Grapeview Kager lived, to see if he was in district 3, the position up for election, is unknown. But evidently no one did, and Kager was allowed to file; he spent some money on campaigning, and now will be unable to assume the job even if he gets the majority of votes. I don't know if he has been officially notified by the Auditor's office of his plight, or if the Auditor's office plans to leave it up to the other two Port commissioners to settle the problem, but it is clear that a lot of confusion and, possibly, hard feelings, could have been avoided if someone accepting Kager's request to file as a candidate, had checked on his eligibility. This week the NoCth Mason P.T.A. sponsored an open house at our four schools to acquaint parents with the methods our teachers are using to educate our children Our teachers gave three full evenings for this purpose I attended all three nights and, frankly, was very disappointed at the small attendance and lack of interest The teachers prepared a program for the parents showing what every child did each day. The elementary teachers had papers by the children on display as well as the books the children used each day. They were all available for answering any questions the parents might have. In the upper elementary and high school a schedule for each student was made so the parents could attend class and the teacher could tell what they hoped each child would learn before the end of the school year. The principals of each school were there to greet the parents and also answer any questions that were bothering them. We do a lot of complaining about our teachers and the people who run our schools. Here was an honest effort to show the parents that teachers earn their money and have the interest of our children at heart. If I were asked to spend three hours of my own time to acquaint people with my job and got as little thanks by attendance as these teachers did, I would refuse to do it again. When Open House is presented next year, it is my hope, as P.T.A. President, that more parents will take advantage of the opportunity. We owe our school personnel an apology. North Mason P.T.A.

The overwhelming crowd really had us frustrated for awhile. It would be impossible to thank everyone individually. We wish to express our gratitude to the Allyn House crew, who made it possible to use their kitchen to make 20 gallons of sauce ahead of time.

Gilson By Leo & Margaret Livingston -- CR 5-6421 The time has come again when shore dwellers are awakened at dawn by the heavy artillery of duck hunters. The water birds, we feel, are fewer each succeeding year, not primarily because of the hardy hunters, but other causes such as loss of breeding and feeding grounds and the effects of insecticides on fertility.
