Twelve hours later they arrived in I, were made in various relatives; they saw Forest, the Grand Brice Canyon; they rcycle rip heard the Mormon Temple organ in Salt Lake City, and returned to their Shelton home after a happy 12-day vacation.

They belong to the Royal Checkmates, Inc., a Bremerton club with whom they participate in rides, camp-outs, dances and many group activities. "About four years ago," Gerald Brown stated, "we had a club in Shelton called the Olympic Riders, but it disbanded." Levina laughed over the tendency of some persons to lump all motorcyclists into a single catagory. "Some children," she smiled, "approached us with awe and asked if we were 'Hell's Angels'!"

Martin I)urkan and Harry Lewis, Chairmen of the Forest Tax Committee, said that the administrative rules governing the designation ot forcstlands under the state's new forest tax law have been adopted on an emergency basis by the Department of Revenue. The rules were adopted on an emergency basis to allow maximum time for forestland owners to meet a year-end deadline involving an important procedural option, according to the Department. Under the new forest tax law, most privately owned forestlands 20 or more acres in size will be classified as "forestland" by the county assessors. In cases where land isn't so classified and where the owner feels his parcel meets the law's requirements, the owner may apply for "'designation" as forestland on a form supplied by the assessor. Durkan pointed out that the deadline for that application is Dec. 31, 1971, if the designation Local Jackson Group Is Being Formed The coordinator of the Citizens for Jackson Committee in Mason County this week called on area residents to help Sen. Henry M. "Scoop" Jackson "'take his first big step toward the White House" Jackson formally announced his candidacy Nov. 19. kester J. Johnsen, the county campaign coordinator, pointed out that Jackson has given more than 30 years of distinguished service to the residents of Washington State. "We're counting on all Washingtonians to help this man who has done so much for us so he can take a solid delegation from Washington State to the national convention." Johnsen said that because Washington does not have a Presidential Preference Primary Election, delegates to the National Convention will be elected beginning with precinct caucuses to be held March 7, 1972. "These caucuses are of crucial importance and are open to registered voters who wish to participate in the nomination process." 1817 Olympic Hwy. No. --- Mt.

Franklin 426-3357 is to take effect in the 1972 assessment year. Forestland is defined in the law as "... all land in any contiguous ownership of 20 or more acres which is primarily devoted to and used for growing and harvesting of timber, and means land only". Also adopted by the Revenue Department on an emergency basis were administrative rules governing the preparation of timber rolls. The new law provides that, beginning in 1972, county assessors must maintain a timber roll separate from the property assessment roll. "Although assessors must take the initiative in establishing timber rolls and classifying forestlands,;' the Revenue Department noted, "owners of 20 acres or more of forestland should contact their assessor to learn how their lands will be assessed effective Jan. 1, !972." Passed by the 1971 Legislature, the new forest tax law provides ultimately for an excise tax on timber at the time of harvest and does away with the annual "ad valorem" property tax on timber.
