I This Friday night will see the culmination of many dreams and many, many hours of hard work when the local Youth Center opens its doors to the young people of the community as a place for teenagers "to go.'" Although the land and most of the materials and labor which have made the long-awaited Center a reality have been donated by the Belfair Community Baptist Church and its members, the building will be open to all teenagers in the area, not just Church members. The North Mason area has needed a place for teenagers to meet and "do their thing" for a long time. On behalf of the community, the Herald wishes to thank all the dedicated workers who turned out week after week to work on the project. Without their help and the volunteer labor of several specialists, the building would probably not be much beyond the blueprint stage. It still isn't paid for completely. The adults who have been working for the Center have had to borrow money to complete it, so donations from individuals or groups will be welcome. And continued volunteer labor will be needed by adults to chaperone the Center during the times it will be open. The rest is up to the teenagers. Whether all the money and labor has been spent in vain will be determined by the acceptance of the Center by local teenagers. The success of the project is up to them. For too long a time the lament of the local youth has been "There's no place to go and nothing to do." Okay, now you have a place to go; it will be up to you to support and help plan activities to interest your fellow teenagers, to suggest changes or improvements if some are needed, to help with supervision of any fellow teenagers who might try to bend the rules or deface the property. A lot of fun-filled hours throughout the coming years can be spent by the young people of North Mason in the Youth Center. A handful of adults have done more than their share in providing the youth with this opportunity to have a local hangout. We wish the teenagers a successful "Opening Night" this Friday night and many good times in the weeks and years ahead in their own special building. F ourteen-year old Thomas Johnson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Warren Johnson of Belfair, received the Eagle award, highest rank to be earned by a Boy Scout, at a special Eagle Court of Honor held in Belfair Tuesday night. He was the third Boy Scout from Belfair's Troop 513 to earn the award in its over-thirty years of existence. Last year his brother, Joey, was the second scout to be honored for achieving the Eagle rank. Although only 2 1 merit badges are required for the rank, Thomas has earned 24. He beleives he learned something from working for each one of them. During his membership in the troop, Thomas has served as Quartermaster, scribe, assistant Patrol leader, patrol leader, assistant senior .patrol leader, senior patrol leader, librarian and instructor. He has been working for his Eagle award for about a year and a half, ever since earning the Life award. Two more Johnson boys are working towards the same high honor. Gary, 12, has reached the second class; Bruce, 11, is just starting out as a tenderfoot. The four boys also have a sister, Tracy, 9. Scoutmaster for Troop 513 is Dillon Fisher Harry Lohman was the committee chairman in charge of arrangements for the Eagle Court of Honor, presented by the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Mr. Johnson is employed at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton. Thomas is a freshman at North Mason High School. Eagle Scout Thomas Johnson Letters to Editor, Huckleberry Herald: May we make a plea to the community? Please, please turn in any and all names of local servicemen. We of the Belfair Fire Auxiliary appreciate this help from you. These boys will be away from home over the holidays and we'd like to let them know we're thinking of them and share a little happiness. Please take time to care. We need names of overseas and stateside servicemen. Boxes will be packed and sent for both on November 17, so please hurry. Names can be turned in by calling either CR5-6155 or CR5-2940 or +:an be dropped off at the firehall or to Johanna at the Belle Faire Boutique beauty salon in the shopping center. Please help us brighten up "our" boys holidays; they appreciate it more than we do. Sincerely, Johanna Thompson Editor, Huckleberry Herald: Why was there a shortage of ballots in the Grapeview and Lake precincts on November 2? Was it stupidity on the part of the person responsible for furnishing ballots, not being able to count the number of registered voters? Or was it arrogance in deciding how many could or should vote? Or was it indifference in the elections held in this end of the County? Whatever the reason, the person responsible for the shortage should pay for any repeat elections which might have to be held before an election can be declared valid. Concerned voters shouldn't be penalized by having tax money wasted on reruns because they were concientious enough to turn out in large numbers for an election.

She included this news in her weekly ad in the shopper. I remember her as a pleasant person with a smile for everyone. Maureen Smith I only met once as she was only with the paper a little over a year, but seemed to be a competent person in her job, also. She was with the Belfair Shopping Guide writing the column called "Babe in the Woods." from April 1968 through April 1969 when the shopper became the Huckleberry Herald until September 1969. Then there's Lou Donnell. Page 2 - Huckleberry Herald section of Shelton-Mason County Journal - November 11, 1971 She's a busy little bee in her small car and office. I think she's a wonderful editor, myself. Of course, she can make mistakes, and can't we all? This proves we aren't sitting still doing nothing. It's our job as members of the Betty Bogle Maureen Smith community to help these writers with our news, advertisements, etc. So let's not criticize the writers; let's think "how can I help?" and do it now and then. I've lived in this community for about 14 years. I have pride and confidence in what these newspaper people have done and are doing. We need a better understanding of man's assets, liabilities, faults and good points. This way, if it's written about us, we can let our assets outweigh our liabilities in the future and if we know our faults we can strive to overcome them. Communication through the paper has been aimed at keeping us informed of happenings in our community. In writing this, I'm just trying to say "Thank you" to the four and also there are more, Lou Donnell like the writers from the different surrounding areas like Tahuya, Grapeview, North Shore, etc. plus the school columns. It's not just the editor's job to dig up everything there is to write about, and I for one, am careless and ashamed for not giving more help than I have to these people, but aren't we all inclined to put ourselves first and not worry about others? It may have taken an hour's time for me to compile this article, but I feel the persons involved in compiling our paper deserve a Thank You and may God bless each of you, past and present.

The biggest was a 183A pounder found by Mark Postier while brush-picking on a ridge above the North Shore road. Postier, a former North Shore resident, now lives on the South Shore. The giant mushroom was on display for a day at Harold's Inn. It was finally cut up by Irene Middleton, one of our North Shore mushroom hunters, and distributed. The cauliflower mushroom is an edible variety. Elmer Beard also found a cauliflower mushroom while hunting. It was over a foot in diameter. He estimated it weighed three pounds. Oda Beard reports that she parboiled it to tenderize it, then cooked it slowly in butter and oil. Delicious, she says. Beard didn't see a deer during the regular season. He reports he did pick gallons of chantrelles. Mrs. Beard and her sister and brother-in-law, Ivetta and Walter Butterfield, also have been studying edible varieties. This year they found pine mushrooms and the Prince. Ann and Armes Makala, who have a farm on the Union River valley, and Oda Beard attended mushroom shows in Bremerton and Seattle this fall. Makala is becoming keenly interested in mushrooms. And last week he found another rare cauliflower mushroom. Terra Linda was sold by Allen Bowden and Norm Metcalf to Alan Logan and Hugh Campana first to move here. Other Terra Linda improvements will include an addition on the south side of the building. The Laundromat will be refinished. Another Terra Linda addition being considered is a new barber shop and a gift shop. Additional landscaping is planned. Mr. and Mrs. James Carter are moving to Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. He has just returned from Vietnam. His wife lived at Terra Linda while he was in the service there. Carter has a sister, Mrs. Lou Duncan, who lives nearby on the North Shore. in The 52nd National Children's Book Week will be "Read-ln '71" in libraries throughout the Timberland Library district, November 14 to 20.
