Dick Clark, the ever-youthful television host and tireless entrepreneur who helped bring rock `n’ roll into the mainstream on “American Bandstand,” and later produced and hosted a vast range of programming from game shows to the year-end countdown from Times Square on “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” has died. He was 82. Spokesman Paul Shefrin said Clark had a heart attack Wednesday morning at Saint John’s hospital in Santa Monica, a day after he was admitted for an outpatient procedure.
The Mason County Commission has denied proposed changes to the County’s Code relating to connecting to the Belfair Sewer System. The proposal was to make the Zoning Code (Title 17) consistent with the Belfair Sanitary Sewer Code (Title 13) by requiring any new development in the Belfair Urban Growth Area that is within 500 feet of a sewer line to connect to the system and allow properties being developed to have septic systems as long as they agree to connect to the system when it becomes available.
