Grapeview Gadabout By LOUISE EWART 426-4925 Now I know for sure it is my typewriter that cannot spell for my name came out Louise Wart and I sure know better than that. This was one of the windiest, wettest and coldest weekends on record this winter and I had twenty Boy Scouts from Seattle camping on my cove lot all weekend. Mr. and Mrs. Les Freeman brought the group of boys over from Seattle. I really had to admire them from my warm spot in front of the fireplace for they cooked all their meals by campfire and really made themselves a comfortable and fairly dry camp. They toured the Olympic Geoduck plant in Allyn and Dan gave them five packages of breaded geoducks which they cooked. Saturday night I invited them in for popcorn and to dry coats and boots and it was really fun for they had skits and a song fest. The Freemans lived in Grapeview for several years and their two boys attended the Grapeview school. This will be news to Ernie Nicklaus but I took Ruth over to say hello to her and see her lovely new home but I guess we just missed her. 1 took her to see how the Grapeview school was growing and then on to the Ha'nson home and the same story : Melba .nd Ken were shopping. Mr. and Mrs. Norman Moore have just returned from a "'eight thousand-mile trip in their camper. They planned their trip with alternate routes to take in case they would run into bad weather and it was a very good thing for hurricane Laura changed their plans to go to the new Disney Land in Florida. While in North Carolina they were guests of Mr. and Mrs. Bill Moore who hved in Grapeview some years ago. Weather permitting, they enjoyed Bryce Canyon and the Grand Canyon. The flu bug has made the circuit of our house. I thought Peggy had missed the flu but Monday I had a call from the school that she was ill and to come and pick her up - so; one car would not start and the other car was penned in the garage and I tried to exchange batteries but they wouldn't fit. I was in tears for I did not know how I was going to pick her up so I called Mr. Query and he took me right down and brought her home, and I want to thank you again, Mr. Query, for being so kind to us. Christmas cards are coming to our house from many former residents. We have heard from Kathy Stoudt and the Query family in Oregon.

He joins two sisters, Kim, 13. and Teresa. 3. He is officially named Robert Donald Theroux, Jr. His maternal grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Ranniger of the North Shore Nursery. By JULI PRESTON -- CR 5-6288 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Young Patrick Casey Hart who is the two and a half year old grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Rodney G. Hart of Twanoh Falls, underwent open heart surgery on December 14th in Long Beach, California. Patrick was born with two major heart defects. At the age of six weeks he underwent surgery at the Children's Hospital in Seattle for correction of one of the defects. This past September his mother, Marsha Hart, moved with him to Long Beach because he was prone to pneumonia. It was hoped that this operation could have waited until Patrick was four years old, but his doctors felt that it should be done now because his heart was enlarging due to the extra work it had to perform. Needless to say the folks of Belfair are sending lots of wishes and hope to both Patrick and his Mother. Bill and Bruce Landram will be home soon from college for Christmas. The Landram family will have Miss Mary Richmond from Wenatchee as a guest for several days during the holidays. The lovely hghted Christmas Tree out on the dock in front of the Krueger home can be seen across the canal by our North Shore neighbors. It's a wonderfully cheery sight to see on these cold winter nights as we're driving along] Ran and Sandi House have an early Christmas package at their home. Master Matthew Stuart House was born on the morning of December 6th weighing ten pounds and twelve ounces with a grand height of twenty-two inches. Little sister Melissa Dawn who will be two on January 6th thinks her new baby brother is a wonderful Christmas present ! The South Shore Spotlight column will need a new columnist for the new year. Your present news gathering gal will be moving to Seattle next month to attend college at Seattle Community College. To all of those who have called with your news goes a warm and hearty thank you. There are also those of you who have been so good as to come up with last minute news when there was no news at all and to you I say thank you for making this column possible. I'll be writing for you for two more weeks during the Christmas holidays and if anyone is interested in writing for the column please call myself or Lou at the office. (Editor's Note: We're sorry to see you leave and will miss your cheery column. I hope someone will call within the next two weeks to take your place so we don't lose the coverage of South Shore news.) /oca As usual, a call for help, this time for a place to be used as a community clothing center, has been answered. This time by a man who issued a similar call for help through the Huckleberry Herald a year ago when he was Commander of the Pack Rats and was searching for a building, and later, a site on which to place a donated building, for the Belfair Search and Rescue group. Ray Sage, one of the three owners of SS & T Auto Parts, has offered space in an unused back room in the building which houses the business. Co-owners Gene Triplett and Barry Snover are also Pack Rat members. The room to be used is being cleared out and some arrangement for a space to be used as a fitting room for those who wish to try on articles of clothing are being made. Clothing turned in to the local Sheriff's office will be moved to the new location. Persons wishing to donate nice usable clothing or to pick up needed articles are welcome to space e Eng donated items. Some shoes and slippers have been turned in and tables or shelves are needed for display of these. Racks are needed to hang dresses and coats. Many people have already gone through their closets in search of clothes for the needy. Any volunteers for making or donating tables, racks or shelves? No volunteers are needed for distribution of the articles since persons needing the clothing can simply walk through the front office of SS & T Auto Parts, next door to the PUD building in Belfair, and help themselves.

Page 4 - Huckleberry Herald section of Shelton-Mason County Journal - December 16, 1971 by BARBARA KNIGHT CR5-6305 Hi!. Well! Betty Edwards was complaining to me that she only got 10c an inch and I'm getting 15c, but look who's at home slaving away and who's on a vacation this winter. The Twanoh Grange will host an Installation of Officers for those Granges in Mason County who wish to participate on December I0, 1971 at 8:00 p.m. This will be a pot luck refreshment meeting. Karen and Bob Newman of LakeLand Village just returned from Hawaii. Karen said they stayed at the Surfrider in Waikiki Beach. They took a 200-mile tour through the island. She said the guide was real good, he even told them about the different trees as they passed them. They stopped and ate fresh pineapple & coconut, also brought some home. Needless to say, they were anything but ready to come home. The R. O. Rasmussen residence was the scene of some activity Tuesday night. Lois called in and said she had a small chimney fire. The ever fire-conscious firemen responded in force, much to Lois' dismay. Really, though, I'd rather call them out and have it turn out to be nothing, than not call them out and have my house burn down. We have a couple of birthday boys so far this month. Dennis Griffey turned 8 years old the 10th of December. He celebrated by having his mother take cupcakes to school for his class. His brother Danny was one year old on the 15th of December. Happy Birthday, boys. The area is saddened by the news that Perry Valley passed away Wednesday night the 8th of December. Perry was a long time resident of Allyn. Gee, I don't see as many yards decorated this year as I have in the past. Come on you people, get into the Christmas spirit. Put up some lights and Santas. When you're passing through Allyn take a look at Pat Uldrikson's house. She's really doing wonders to the place. A new cement porch and steps with wrought iron railing have been added and new modern windows. You better watch out, Pat, or you'll end up with the prettiest and most modern house around. Hey! you Grange members, don't forget the Twanoh Grange Pot Luck Christmas party, December 17, at 6:00 p.m. As 1 promised - here is question No. 1, on "New Directions in Education". 1. What you believe about every child - Not only the cute little cherub down the street but, the ornery one who throws rocks and the dirty little boy who always seems to be begging. Can your thoughts divide your tax dollar equally among them? As a tax payer, do you feel responsibility towards children as a whole or just "yours and mine"? Does responsibility end when yours are graduated or does it end with the North Mason District? When monies have to be divided so many ways, how can work to promote better education for others, besides those personally affected by your tax dollar, really be effective! Since the school takes a very large portion of our tax dollar, maybe our thoughts on children should be more closely defined. Though we may want, can we afford more than the basic - "reading, writing, and arithmetic" education? If not, have we really done our part in preparing these children to carry on in a world as diversified as it is now? How much do we owe "Children as a whole"; a bed, food and basic education, or a chance to develop his individual potential in a society that may be culturally different than the one he knows? Will "basics" fill his needs 30 years from now? I wish I had the answer. Services held for Lora E. Howerton The Rev. Wendell Harder of Belfair Community Baptist Church officiated at funeral services in Bremerton on December 1 for Mrs. Lora E. Howerton, 84, who died November 26 in Bremerton Convalescent Center.

ERNIE & HAROLD ARIES CR 5-2031 8:30 -- 6:00 By LENNIA CATES -- CR 5-2245 St. Nicholas Church has started holding Sunday School Services again for children in the Tahuya area. In the past, much interest has been generated in reviving the program only to have interest wane after a short period of time. Perhaps this renewed effort will be a lasting one - not only during the Yule Season but throughout the year. Services will start at 11 : 15 a.m. each Sunday - same time as that for the regular church services. Parents interested and wishing additional information may call Mrs. Borgford at CR5-3223. It looks like Terry Sills will be wearing the popular bell bottom trousers as regular garb soon - come January he's joining the Navy. Good luck, Admiral!! Nature has its own way of providing foliage on our lilac tree here after the leaves have fallen - birds, birds and more of the same. They were sure hungry and bewildered little fellows over that 5V~" of snow a week ago, but as in years past we are keeping their tummies full, "Orphy" and her little gang of "renegades" are putting it away as usual - three pounds (at least) of dry dog food each nile!! Quite a few steelhead fishermen on the Tahuya and Dewatto Rivers. Success has been spotty, but both rivers are better known for good results around January. The b/h tried his luckbut all he mn into was a big black bear! 1 wouldn't say it frightened him, but he came home a lot sooner than expected! Happy birthday to Alice Hudson, and while at it might as well chalk up another for myself. (Editor's Note: I'll second the motion. Happy Birthday, Lennia.) AND for hevin's sake we can't pass up wishing the "Tiny Tim's" a Happy Anniversary!! What with Mrs. Nixon and Joe Namath pushing electric popcorn poppers this year, one might feel like a traitor at not finding one under the Christmas tree! VANDALISM REPORTED Vandals did damage estimated at $75 to a picknic table and garbage can at Camp Spillman according to a complaint filed by the State Department of Natural Resources at the local Sheriff's office on December 7. Airman Theron M. Harder, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wendell L. Harder of Belfair, has received his first U. S. Air Force duty assignment after completing basic training at the Air Training Command's Lackland AFB, Tex. The airman has been assigned to a unit of the Air Training Command at Fairchild AFB, Wash., for training and duty as a survival equipment specialist. Airman Harder is a 1971 graduate of North Mason High School. NOTHING TAKEN Attempted larceny of two batteries in two motorboats parked in the yard of a North Shore residence last week failed but one battery was broken while the would-be thief was trying to remove it and seats in the other boat were damaged in the unsuccessful try to steal that boat's battery.
