A measure that would help schools recover after natural disasters, such as the Carlton Complex Fire last July in North Central Washington, passed unanimously Monday from the state House of Representatives.
Wednesday marked the 80th year of public service for Mason County PUD No. 1. In the 1920’s rural farmers and settlers were fed up with private investors having control over the local power industry and power rates. The Washington Grange Association organized an effort to put forward an initiative in 1929 to adopt a statewide PUD law.
