Editorial• .... • • .... m Shortly after ! became the editor about two years ago, I received an invitation to join a press tour of State-owned lands oll the Tahuya Peninsula to hear about plans to build sm ll mini-parks throughout the area for those who like it more secluded while camping than what is offered by the large State parks. At that time Camp Spillman had just been completed and boasted of the outdoor auditorium with rows of split logs placed on a hillside to form seats for the audience, facing a fire pit for community singing and a lectern for a more formal program. Many organized groups have since used the facilities offered at this site. On that day, besides flying over the area in a DNR plane we were driven to the Paul Sharp picnic site on Aldrich Lake to see the spectacular view of Hood Canal and the Olympics on one side and the pretty lake on the other. At that time this mini-park was just a picnic area with three or four tables, litter barrels and restrooms. Last year when 1 toured the area with Jerry Otto of DNR the Mission Creek Youth Camp boys were finishing the job of turning the area into a small campground and by last spring when our family drove up there for a picnic one Sunday, work had been completed and there were several campsites in secluded spots along the lake shore. This summer the 4-H horse camp, now called the Tahuya River Camp, was enlarged into a campgrounds which can accomodate quite a few horseback riding campers. The work on this park was done in great part by over 700 Catholic Boy Scouts from Seattle, but the same fine work as done by the Mission Creek Youth Camp boys in transforming the first two parks is evident. Now volunteer labor from bike clubs and horse clubs has been offered to build a 70 mile trail throughout the North Mason Kitsap area for further enjoyment of our lovely wilderness. Work by the Mission Creek Youth Camp boys will also be used for this enterprise. All of this is happening in our own backyard. It's been fun keeping an eye on developments; sort of like watching history being made. How long since you've taken a look at what's happening on the Tahuya Peninsula? presented here "Flowers for Algernon," a full-length drama, will be presented as the Senior Play at North Mason High School this Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. in the high school gym.

Page 2 - Huckleberry Herald section of Shelton-Mason County Journal - November 18, 1971 :~e wish t.o rexp1"e~& o~r appreciation of the aid given us by neighbors and motorists when our dog met her demise recently on the Belfair Allyn Road. In the confusion we forgot the names of the persons who were so concerned, especially the gentleman from Grapeview. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Schuckert Editor, Huckleberry Herald: I would like to thank you for the publicity given to our 3rd annual card party luncheon. As a result $167. has been sent to the Childrens' Orthopedic Hospital and Medical Center. We would also like to publicly thank the generous friends of the hospital who donated food and merchandise prizes for our guests; Don Schoner Meat Company of the South Shore for the delicious hams. Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Ried for a living Alpine fir tree; Mrs. Robert Sutton, stationery and soap dish; The Clothesline, a "surprise package," Jeans Tidal Wave, two shampoos with hair sets, and the North Shore Nursery for a gift certificate• A special thanks for a job well done to Fran Sutton, Merle Turnley and all others who helped make this event a success. Gloria Lincoln Publicity Chairman Frances F. Gladwin Orthopedic Guild Editor, Huckleberry Herald: In your article of 10-7-71 concerning the Stretch Island Bridge, you quoted Jim Lynch of the County Engineer's office, stating they had a deed proving ownership to 60 feet of my waterfront. Since I have heard reference to this deed several times LATELY and have been avoided when I requested inspection, I attended the next meeting of the County Commissioners and requested proof of a deed's existance, as none shows in the Auditor's File, or a retraction of their statement as I am troubled by enough trespassers/poachers in my oyster beds without their help. Four trips to the Courthouse and two to the Prosecutor's office and I was presented with an un-signed copy of the Reapplication NO. 1335 for "Right of Way" for county road and bridge over certain vacated oyster reserve in Mason County dated April 3, 1930. 1 have long been aware of this old un-used Right of Way but I never dreamed of a fraudulent claim to a deed from the County Engineer's office as this Right of Way is NOT the site of the Stretch Island Bridge. As Commissioner Bill Hunter will not order a correction, will you please accept mine'? kes Rice, Host to Mason County's Stretch Island Bridge and Garbage Dump Site P.S. To my knowledge, the plans are still to construct a fill/wood bridge in spite of the many protests (approx• 100) and a lack of ownership. The new site offered is much safer, cheaper and kinder to our waterway and general environment. Editor, Huckleberry Herald: 1 wish to write a letter of congratulations to the "Jobies" for their time and effort in putting on such a lovely luncheon and style show. It was a huge Success. "Congratulations Jobies" The luncheon and style show you girls presented on Nov. 6, was a huge success. To assemble a project of this kind requires team work, time and effort. And congratulations to Mrs. McKaig who was instrumental in putting on a perfect program. The clothing and accessories from the "Clothes Line" were very beautiful, in good taste, most o~ them;:~a~tta'o1~ te'w 9~ovle temaTK art this'}. "l'Me¥ were also within a reasonable price range. "Jean's Tidal Wave Beauty Salon" is to be commended on the hair styling of the models, especially since she worked under adverse conditions when the shop was in darkness due to an accident on the North Shore road by a car hitting a power pole, blacking out the North Shore for three hours. Some of the girls had been fortunate enough to have had their hair dry and styled, others were ready to go under the dryers but had to return to their homes with hair wet and in rollers, to wait until the following day, then go back for comb outs. But it was not in vain as their hair was beautiful. To the Jobies in what ever capacity they filled, whether it be taking tickets at the door or serving the food or modeling, you all did your part well. To the models: you all had a very professional air and showed the styles with grace to their greatest advantage. There was a lot of work, time, and effort on the part of the mothers of the Jobies. To the ones who went to the shopping center to purchase the food, and all the ladies pitching in from eight o'clock Friday morning, cooking chickens for a very delicious chicken salad• Potatoes for a huge potato salad, two kinds of jello salad, arranged on beds of lettuce in a very appetizing display. Hot rolls, and other lovely brownie bars, lemon bars, and several other kinds. Working until late Friday and returning to the Masonic Temple by seven o'clock Saturday morning working up until luncheon time, then the clean up. I think that we all know what a time-consuming job that is. I think the reason I enjoyed this so immensly was because I was invited as a guest of my granddaughter, Mrs. Mike Flurey (Patty). It was part of an early surprise birthday celebration for me. "Thank you so much, Patty, for your kindness and thoughtfulness. "Jobies" I know what others feel the same as I do, that Belfair needs more of this sort of thing so 1 hope you will do this again next year. Sincerely, Mrs. Dorothy Wren Aid Car meeting (Continued from page I) Richard Knight, explained that only two people from the district were allowed to attend the EMT course for which six had applied. He and Mrs. Johnny Baldy had attended the course and are passing on the things they learned to others in the district so that all volunteers answering aid calls would have better training than just an advanced first aid card. He also explained how emergency calls in district 5 were handled. If an emergency call came in asking for the aid car to be sent to a location in the Lake Limerick or Mason Lake area, volunteer firemen, trained in first aid, who live near there would go to the location to aid the victim until the aid car's arrival. Which is why better first aid training is being encouraged among the firemen of the entire district. The Tuesday night meeting was attended by over thirty volunteer firemen from all four stations in district 5 and by several deputies of the Mason County Sheriff's office. Sergeant Dan McNair expressed the wish that some troopers from the Washington State Patrol who work in this area had been able to come so that they would have a better understanding of what the Firemen's Association of District 5 is endeavoring to accomplish. First off, a few announcements. The bookmobile will stop at Mason Lake the 9th of December instead of Thanksgiving day as scheduled and the Women's Auxiliary will not meet the last Wednesday of this month as scheduled; too close to the big day. The entertainment committee for the MBC met at my house last Saturday, and we previewed a game called "Bunco" (it sounds By JEANNINE PETERSON -- 426-381 5 should be given to Pat Lewis. She keeps a really professional set of books and puts many hours into paying the bills and keeping everything straight. The MBC is lucky to have her as Treasurer.

Pat Being elected to an office of one's organization should be an honor and certainly considered a duty to serve once in awhile. But not here. The officers are only taken because no one else wants it. Too bad. Marjorie Marshall was nominated for President, and very gracefully accepted (she will make an excellent one too). Dolores Zingier, vice president, Brenda Surprenant, secretary and Jean Smith, treasurer. Jean has held this office several times and has been an excellent treasurer. Congratulations, girls! As I mentioned last week, Mr. and Mrs. Tom Aarhus postponed their trip to Arizona until Donna Harris is better. They have rented their house to Jody and Laura Thomas.

It's played with dice (not a gambling game though, Dan) high score is given a prize at the end of the evening, however. Don Welch and Kay Sarver were the lucky winners. Donna and Jack Harris were overwhelmed with the help they had in moving to their new home at Paradise. Alice Jean Mendenhall even brought their dinner out from Seattle.

LaB Vegas and Reno were also high on the list of fun places visited. Some of tiudge's folks still didn't know he had survived the war some 15 years ago and were more than surprised when he appeared. Shame on you Hudge! They had a fine trip, even the weather cooperated to some extent. Glad to have you back, neighbors! Mr. Berringer from Shelton donated another sack of corn for the ducks and promised hay for the deer this winter if we needed it. Hope it doesn't get that cold and icy, but one never knows.
