Shelton-Mason County Journal - Dedicated to the citizens of Mason County, Washington since 1886

From the Publisher


We here at the Shelton-Mason County Journal and Belfair Herald are very thankful for readers, both those who subscribe and those purchase a single newspaper. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to publish the newspaper each week. 

As you have seen everywhere, prices on goods and services have increased. We have absorbed multiple cost increases over the past several years. Another postage increase starts in July and we have yet another printing increase effective this month. We have not changed our single-copy price for nearly a decade. Starting this week both our single-copy and subscription rates will increase. You can see the details at the bottom of this page.

The majority of our staff lives in Mason County. We cover what is happening in our own back yard each week. The Shelton-

Mason County Journal and Belfair Herald are the one place you can go to find out what is happening in the county, current pictures of our children’s sports team, a nugget of information about a person, event, or place that you did not know, who is selling what, a service or place you may need to visit, or learning of an acquaintance passing. We are an extension of your life and we work hard to do our best at bringing you the best newspaper possible.

On behalf of myself and my entire staff, thank you for helping us to continue to bring your local newspaper to you.

John Lester, Publisher, Shelton-Mason County Journal/Belfair Herald
