June 16, 1977, Monitor, Monroe, WA., Page Three Legal notices FROM: Kirke Sievers, Snohomish County Treasurer RE: Law requires mobile home taxes must be paid before move- ment. On May 6th Governor Ray signed into law Senate Bill 2052 (Chapt. 22, Laws 1977, 1st Ex. Sess.) which requires that before any mobile home can be moved on the highways or roads of this state, all property taxes must be paid. This legislation was actively promoted by the Washington Association of county Officials on behalf of county assessors and county treasurers who are charged with the difficult task of assessing and collecting taxes on such mobile units. The new Washington law is patterned after the Oregon statute and it is anticipated to significantly reduce the number of mobile homes that leave the state or county without paying the taxes that are due. Any individual that desires to move or have their mobile home moved should contact the Snohomish County Treasurer's Office and obtain a Tax Certificate for Mobile Home Movement. After all taxes are paid and this certificate is obtained, a mobile home transporter can then proceed under the normal manner to move the mobile unit. The new law contains penalty provisions subjecting any individ- ual that moves a mobile home without payment of taxes of a fine up to $100 and in addition to the fine, loss of their transporter's permit for not less than thirty days. Since the Act carried an emergency clause it became effective on May 6th, 1977 when signed into law. For more information on forms, you may call 259- 9307.

These have always been the Longacres watchwords and guidelines for over 40 years of Thoroughbred racing at the popular Renton oval. Your reporter has watched this progress for over two decades. It would take a fat paperback to enumerate the annual improvements at Longacres that contribute to racing. Another innovation. Meet the newest Longacres em- ployee. He is Kent Vincent, radio, TV and news media intern. Ken admits to an insatiable appetite for all kinds of news. As a youngster his favorites were news broadcasts. Others were not interesting to him. He has served as editor of his East Valley (Yakima) high school paper and gave four years to that media. He did everything there was to do including sweeping out the place. In his search for continued activitiy and training in radio and TV at the college level, he found his dream course at Eastern Washington State College (Cheney) which is directed by Dr. Howard Hoff, formerly a Public Relations Director for General Motors. The course is unique in that it is entirely divorced from the communications school and specializes in the media entirely designed for listening and watching. Ken will begin his junior year in radio work in September in Cheney. Longacres established and designed the internship to encourage future radio broadcasting and to provide the opportunity for beginners to learn and practice their trade. Ken works directly under Mark Kauffman who has many years of experience in all facets of radio, and Pat Dawson, Longacres Publicity Director. Through this internship Longacres is providing an opportunity to succeed to major broadcasting in the future. The Longacres network lists 25 stations in Washington; and the track feels that Thoroughbred racing will benefit from the internship and will further enhance the rapidly growing industry in Washington and will provide media people for the future who really understand racing. Ken brings some racing experience to his job, having worked on the barnside for several summers as a groom. His stepfather Robert Howg is currently a journeyman jockey at Longacres.

By Larry Whitfield surt .your camper insurance doesn't leave you out in the cold. Most eom- panics will cover your camper, trailer or motor home against li- ability, medical, comprehensive and collision. But a low-cost SAFECO pol- icy also provides emer- gency assistance up to $150 for temporary living expenses, trans- portation or re- turn of your ve- hicle back home. And, that same policy will also provide excess coverage up to 10% ofthevalue of the vehicle for personal prop- erty loss, or $250, whichever is greater. Just one more reason why you can al- most always save with SAFECO.

Koni Nolan homered for the eastern team, Genny Ellis poked two triples and Cathy Stansberry had a double and a single.

For the eastern team, Cindy Hunt collected a home run while driving in two runners. Koni Nolan and Cathy Stansberry also collected hits. West team coaches were Bob Kearns, Dean Harniss and Pat Conway.. Coaches for the east squad were Judy Hunt, Lucille Ellis and Nancy Ness. The junior division west team took two out of three games to complete the western sweep. Monroe Sand & Gravel/G&L Body and Eagles Auxiliary/ Larry's and Irv's made up the west team and Valley Concrete/VFW, Joplin Paving/Community Chest compris- ed the estate team. Girls from the Curley Johnston/Kiwanis team split between the two all-star teams. In the first game, the west squad won, 7-6. The east team came back to control the second game, 12-10 and the west finished the series by winning 5-2 in the final contest. In those games: For the west, Tammy Creswell punched out four home runs, Tammy Thorpe and Pam Vanderweyst had triples and outstanding defensive games were turned in by Vander- weyst and Janice Trenbreath. There were two double plays by the west squad. For the east, Tracy Kern and Gina Wagoner belted four sackers and Colleen Belcher and Teresa Phillips had a pair of doubles. A triple play performance was turned in by the east squad. Coaches in the junior division were Brian Phillips and Debbie Adams for the east and Chuck Davis and Robin Richards for the west. For Some Senior Citizens Property tax exemption benefits for retired homeowners 62 years or older and disabled persons have been extended by the Legislature and are expected to meet with Gay. Dixy Lee Ray's approval, according to Robert Shaw, Snohomish County assessor. The exemptions begin with 1978 taxes and to be eligible, senior citizens and disabled persons must apply to the assessor's office before Oct. 1, 1977, Shaw said. To qualify, income must be no more than $8,000. Applicants must have owned and occupied their house or mobile home on Jan. 1, 1977 and been a resident of the state for three years or have occupied the residence for at least two years preceding the year the claim is fried. Other income and exemption provisions include: Eligible taxpayers with income of $6,000 or less are exempt from regular property taxes on up to $5,000 of valuation on their residence, plus an exemption from all excess levies on their property. Those with incomes between $6,001 and $7,000 are exempt from all excess levies. Those with incomes between $7,001 and $8,000 are exempt from one-half of all excess levies. Shaw said that those taxpayers with incomes of $6,000 or less, who have already filed a claim with the county assesor for exemption in 1978 will automatically be considered for exemption when the changes in the law take effect. In figuring annual income, claimants need only include two-thirds of their social security benefits, federal Civil Service retirement or railroad retirement benefits, Shaw said.
