Veterans Day events honor those who served BY JANELLE ATYEO OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – A number of events are planned in the area in observance of Veterans Day, which falls on the 11th day of the 11th month each year, marking the end of World War I. Nov. 11 falls on a Sunday this year, so most government offices and schools will close Monday, Nov. 12 in observance to Veterans Day. No mail will be delivered.

are still in draft form and the contracts haven’t been put before commissioners for final approval. The contract is good for just two years, 2012 and 2013, so the county will be back at the bargaining table this time next year. The county had asked for a six-year agreement. One of the bargaining units is made up of 25 employees in the courthouse and Hall of Justice, and the other bargaining unit is made up of four deputy prosecutors. Their contracts expired at the end of 2011. SEE UNION, 12A

County passes Shoreline Master Program BY DON GRONNING OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – Nearly four years after starting the process, Pend Oreille County commissioners signed off on the Shoreline Master Program draft Tuesday, Oct. 30. “I believe this is the best plan we can approve at this point,” county commissioner Diane

Wear wrote on her county blog. She wasn’t totally happy with the outcome, but said the county is not in a position to fight a legal battle that no other county has won to date. Jaime Short of the Department of Ecology said that once Ecology signs off on the SMP, it would help defend it in court, if necesSEE SHORE, 2A

VFW namesake served his community wherever he lived BY MICHELLE NEDVED OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – As the country prepares to honor those who served this Veterans Day, Sunday, Nov. 11, the local VFW takes a look at its past and the man who it’s named after. The namesake of Newport’s Veteran of Foreign Wars Post left his mark on the community, both locally and in Mexico. Thurman “Bud” Irwin served his country in World War II and spent some time afterward serving the children of the Green Olive Orphanage near Rosarita Beach in Mexico. Irwin and his wife Olive, spent their remaining years in Pend Oreille County. Bud passed away in 1985 and in 1986 the Newport VFW Post 5673 renamed itself the Bud Irwin VFW Post No. 5673. Mike Wolever, the current senior vice commander said the remaining members recently began wondering Irwin about Irwin and why exactly the VFW was named after him. Irwin was stationed in Belgium in 1944, the same area and time of

MANUS | He has a lot of experience creating budgets FROM PAGE 1

works as chief financial officer for Newport Hospital and Health Services. They have three adult children – Jenny Houck of Newport, Kimberly Pacheco of Spokane and Valerie Thompson of Bonners Ferry. They have nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Manus says he enjoys many hobbies – things such as snow skiing, hunting, fishing and boating. But what he likes most is spending time with his grandkids and two yellow Labrador retrievers. Manus said he first thought of becoming a Pend Oreille County commissioner when he was managing the Newport Safeway. He had served as president of the Newport chamber of commerce and enjoyed that work. So when Laura Merrill announced she was leaving her position as county commissioner, he applied. “I have been considering running for commissioner for some time and had expressed that desire to others, who contacted me when Laura announced she was moving on to her new position,” he said. Since Merrill was elected as a Republican, the Pend Oreille County Republican Party got to submit three names from which the county commissioners would choose a successor. Eight people applied and were interviewed by the party, with Manus, Newport city councilman Mark Zorica and Concept Cable president Wayne Antcliff being selected as the ones to forward to the county commission.

www.twitter.com/MinerNews

During the interview with the party, Manus promised to join the county Republican party, something party chairman Norris Boyd intends to hold him to. Manus laughed when reminded of the remark. “I’ve always been a Republican,” he said. But he said he wasn’t particularly partisan about it. “I try to look at all the facts,” he said. He said the best decisions are made in a bipartisan manner. Manus said he learned a lot working at Safeway and got a lot of satisfaction from mentoring others. He said listening and holding people accountable were two keys to being an effective manager. “People want to be accountable so they know what the expectation is,” he said. Manus has had a lot of experience with budgeting, but most has been in the private sector. When he was managing Safeway, the store had monthly, weekly and daily budgets. If the daily revenue was not coming in on budget, people were sent home or not called in to work. “We usually had volunteers who wanted to do that,” Manus said. Manus acknowledges running a private business is different than running a county. He said the need for transparency is greater in government. Manus says he wants to learn more about the county budget, particularly revenue. One thing he won’t have to deal with immediately is the Shoreline Master Program. He says there is still more he

needs to learn about the program, but intialy, he thinks it has too much in common with the Growth Management Act. “I think the Growth Management Act is more for metropolitan areas,” Manus said. “The SMP may fall into that same category.” The contacts Manus made as a Safeway manager have already served him well. During the interviews with county commissioners, several people spoke for Manus, including county auditor Marianne Nichols, who said her first job was at Safeway when she was still in high school. “I learned my customer service skills through Safeway,” she said. She was present at Manus’s interview with the county commissioners but hadn’t planned to speak. But when people were given an opportunity to speak on behalf of the candidate, Manus caught her eye and she told of her experience working at Safeway. “I got along with him well,” she said. While Nichols is a Republican, Manus got some support from a Democrat, Bill Betz, who also worked at Safeway for Manus. When told that Manus was selected as county commissioner, Betz let out a whoop. “Yee haw,” he exclaimed. “You can quote me.” Betz said that Manus was a good manager. “The first thing you would say about Mike is that he is a good listener,” Betz said.

sary. “The agency will stand by the county,” she says. Since the document is a joint document between the county and Ecology, it would not be appropriate for the state to defend any legal actions without the county’s participation, she said. Existing structures and people who have completed building permits will not be affected by the new SMP, they are grandfathered in. The county reached a compromise with Ecology about the size of setbacks, the distance from the shoreline where no development can occur. The setbacks have been highly controversial. The county had approved 25-foot setbacks for years, so when it came time to update their SMP, there was considerable reaction against the new buffers, which increased most setbacks to a minimum 100 feet. County commissioners were able to negotiate some custom buffers in exchange for agreeing to the larger standard buffers. County commissioners heard from many people who thought that the larger buffers were unreasonable and tried to reduce the buffer to 50 feet for rural residential properties but Ecology, who has the final say on approval, said the science did not support the changes. Ecology agreed to 50-foot buffers for rural higher intensity shorelines and urban residential shorelines. Cusick and Newport have some urban shoreline. The rural higher intensity shorelines are located around the dams in the north part of the county.

THE NEWPORT MINER

But for rural residential development, commissioners agreed to 100-foot minimum setbacks, with 150-foot setbacks for rural conservancy property designations and 200-foot setbacks for properties designated to be natural shorelines. In exchange for the county agreeing to the standard buffers, Ecology allowed several ways that property owners could seek a custom buffer, based on individual circumstances. Custom buffers include buffer averaging and infill development. Both may require supporting documentation from a qualified professional and both could be approved by the Pend Oreille County Department of Community Development. With buffer averaging, a property owner could ask to build closer than the standard setback if the setback were increased on another part of the property. The standard setback couldn’t be reduced more than 35 percent, unless the property owner is constrained by a transportation corridor, such as a road or a railroad. If that were the case, the setback could be reduced up to 50 percent. With infill development, the buffer could be reduced from the standard setback if there were buildings within 150 feet on either side of the proposed development. The reduced buffer would be reduced to the average of the existing buffers. This could also be locally approved. When the depth of the lot is equal to or less than the standard shoreline buffer, a property owner could apply for a variance. Both Ecology and the county would have to agree to the variance. The

property owner must show that the building will be constructed as far away from the shoreline as possible. In no case could it be built closer than 50 feet from the water. This variance could also by locally approved. There is another variance possible. This one would have to be approved by both the county and the Department of Ecology. This will be the most difficult custom buffer to get. The next step is to put together a submittal package that includes all the supporting documentation, says Short of the Department of Ecology. When Ecology receives the completed application, they will review it and put it out for statewide comments. People who asked to be informed of any SMPs submitted, as well as people who commented on Pend Oreille County’s plan and left contact information will receive notice of the public comment period, Short said. The comment period will last about 30 days, she said. She expects to get the completed application in a couple weeks. Once the application is completed and the latest public comments are reviewed, the SMP could be either approved, get conditional approval, meaning if some changes are made, it will be approved, or not approved, Short said. She said she doesn’t think the SMP will be rejected because it appears most of the issues Ecology had were resolved in negotiation. In addition to the setbacks, the SMP also sets rules for things like new docks. The complete updated SMP is on the county’s website at: www.pendoreilleco.org/county/shoreline_master_program_update. asp

nus was fair with the employees, Betz said, but wouldn’t let them take advantage of him. Betz pointed out that Manus has been through a lot of management training at Safeway. He said that experience will benefit the county. The thing that is important to both private and public sector management is that money isn’t wasted, he said.

BR I E FLY Cusick budget hearing Nov. 12 CUSICK – The town of Cusick will hold its budget hearing Monday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. at the Town Hall. The town is seeking to increase property taxes by the allowable 1 percent, according to Cusick mayor Bob Spencer. “We don’t get much sales tax,” Spencer said. He said the town gets about $24,000 in property taxes “give or take.” “There is not a lot of money rolling into the general fund,” Spencer said. He said he applied for a state Department of Transportation grant to widen River Road, but he won’t know until late spring. When the town gets a grant it is earmarked for specific purposes, he said.

Career Day set for Nov. 8 at Kalispel Career Training Center CUSICK – About 60 students from each of the area’s school districts are expected to attend the Career Day at the Kalispel Career Training Center Thursday, Nov. 8. The free day-long event will feature structured career and education sessions, presentations from human resource personnel, recruiters from area businesses and information about internship opportunities at various employers such as Seattle City Light and Ponderay Newsprint Mill. KCTC has offered a variety of courses since they opened, including courses in basic and advanced construction, woodworking, plumbing and maintenance, basic electrical and small engine repair. From Aug. 1, 2011, through July 31, 2012, KCTC provided adult training or instruction to 62 people.

Bike thefts increase in Newport NEWPORT – Twelve bicycles were stolen last month in Newport, Pend Oreille County sheriff Alan Botzheim reported to the city council Monday night. He said they hope to put people in jail soon that he suspects are responsible for several crimes. “I don’t think we have 12 bike thieves,” he said. Two people each had four bikes stolen. Botzheim said the thieves are entering people’s back yards to get the bikes, rather than just taking those that are left in the open. Botzheim said Halloween went well and deputies were out in the community to help deter mischief. Deputies have also been providing extra patrols at the schools, hospitals and businesses, as requested. There was one burglary reported last month. A shed was broken into, but nothing was found to be missing. There were five vehicle prowls, and in some cases, windows were smashed and stereos were stolen. One vehicle parked at the city shop had its windows smashed. There were also a number of gas thefts. Someone twice attempted to drill the lock on the pop machine outside Napa Auto Parts. On the second night, deputies located two subjects with burglary tools.

Grizzly booster club president resigns NEWPORT – Anthony Newcomb, president of Newport’s Maws and Paws Booster club has resigned. In a Nov. 5 letter to the booster club board of directors, Newcomb wrote that “I can no longer effectively lead your outstanding organization due to the increasing disintegration of mutual respect for the current Newport School District and High School Administrations.” Newcomb wrote that he was concerned about fundraising fatigue. He wrote that the booster club needed to have open, honest and transparent communication with the district about fundraising efforts, something he didn’t think could be achieved currently.

Assessor Jim McCroskey prepares revaluation notices for mailing Oct. 25. Pend Oreille County property owners whose property value changed in the last year received notices.

New property assessments out

BY JANELLE ATYEO OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – About 3,200 notices were mailed in late October to Pend Oreille County landowners whose assessed property value changed in the last year. Many homeowners, especially those in the city of Newport are finding that their property value dropped. In Newport, the number of foreclosures contributed to driving down values by about $8.5 million. There was about $2 million in new construction to help leverage that loss a little. The value of waterfront property, on the other hand, is going up as there get to be fewer and fewer places to build on the water. At Sacheen Lake, property values were up overall, even before counting the newly constructed homes, worth about $1.85 million. “It was one of the few areas that saw an increase,” assessor Jim McCroskey said. Diamond Lake saw a reduction in value, by about $1.5 million, but with $5.3 million in new construction, the overall value was up slightly. Specific changes for Ione, Cusick, Metaline and Metaline Falls weren’t available. As a whole, the county value in-

creased by about 7 million. While property values dropped since last year, there was about $22 million in new construction. Ponderay Newsprint’s value won’t change until 2015. It is on a court-ordered valuation schedule, and the current real property value is $93.87 million. This year the south part of the county got a visit from appraisers, including the Newport city limits, and properties around Diamond and Sacheen lakes. The assessor’s office does a physical inspection for a different portion of the county every year, with each area getting an updated physical inspection every four years. In the meantime, other parts of the county are revalued based on statistical analysis from home sales and trends. McCroskey said it’s too early to tell the exact effect on property tax levy rates. Rates will likely go up a bit, he said. Property taxes are budget based, and entities are limited to a 1 percent increase each year unless voters approve Area Newport Diamond Lake Sacheen County

something higher. A lower property value doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be paying less in property taxes, as the levy rates could go up to allow local jurisdictions to collect a steady amount. However, owners of the new construction will bear some of that burden. Property owners in the city pay taxes toward the county’s general fund and some other countywide taxing jurisdictions. People in the cities, however, don’t pay the county’s road levy, and most don’t pay toward fire district levies because they have their own fire departments. Property owners have 30 days from the day the notice from the county was postmarked to file an appeal if they disagree with their assessed value. While only those whose property value changed received the notice, anyone may file an appeal within that timeframe. For information, contact the assessor’s office at 509-447-4312, or the board of equalization clerk at 509-447-2712.

Man sentenced for burglary, assault NEWPORT – A 30-yearold man was sentenced to 18 months in prison after pleading guilty to residential burglary and third degree assault. Daren L. Martin was sentenced to concurrent sentences of 18 months for the burglary and 14 months for assault by Pend Oreille County Superior Court Judge Pat Monasmith Thursday, Nov. 1. He will also pay $1,100 in fees. In exchange for the plea, prosecutors reduced a more serious first degree

burglary charge to residential burglary. According to charging documents, Martin and another man were interrupted while burglarizing a McCloud Creek Road residence last March. When the resident came home, she found the door to her house open and a strange vehicle backed up to her front door. She parked her truck so she blocked the other vehicle, a maroon GMC Blazer or Yukon. She got out and went to the

house. As she did, two men ran from the woods near her place and got into the maroon vehicle. She was knocked down when the men drove the maroon vehicle into her truck twice. As this was going on, her male companion came out with a 12-guage shotgun to help her. He pointed the shotgun, which turned out not to be operable, at the driver. The men left and were arrested later, based on fingerprint evidence and positive identification.

County time capsule to be dedicated Thursday BY JANELLE ATYEO OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – Pend Oreille County will rededicate its time capsule with a special ceremony Thursday, Nov. 8 at 1:30 p.m. in the commissioners’ meeting room. Outgoing Secretary of State Sam Reed will be visiting as part of his retirement tour and will help with the ceremony. His office is in charge of the state archives. County auditor Marianne Nichols has been gathering photos and memorabilia from the 2011 county centennial celebration to include in the time capsule. Commissioner Diane Wear contributed a USB drive with photos and biographies of the current commissioners. Large employers around the county have been asked to add something about their companies, and The Miner provided photos and an issue with centennial coverage.

The time capsule was stored inside the cornerstone of the courthouse since 1915 when the building was constructed. It was removed in May 2011 for the county centennial, and the contents have been on display on the first floor of the courthouse since then. The metal box contained a Copper • Brass • Aluminum Stainless • Aluminum Cans Batteries • Radiators

number of old pictures and newspapers. Those items will remain on display, and new material will be placed in the time capsule. The corner stone will be replaced at a later date. Nichols hopes to engrave the side of the stone noting when the time capsule was placed there. We also recycle Cardboard • Iron Newspaper

NEWPORT – The Newport/ Priest River Rotary Club is now in charge of the Newport Rodeo carnival, held rodeo weekend at the end of June. The Rotary will be in charge of the carnival, vendor booths and the beer garden. The Greater Newport Area Chamber of Commerce, which has operated the carnival for more than 30 years, asked the Rotary Club to take over efforts recently. The Newport Rodeo Association will continue its work with regard to the actual rodeo, and the chamber will continue organizing the parade, according to Rotary president Ken Schueman. Schueman said the Rotary Club is brainstorming ideas for the carnival. The group meets

every Wednesday at 7 a.m. in the Rotary Club building at Rotary Park in Oldtown. For more than 25 years Paradise Amusements’ carnival rides had been part of the rodeo attractions until last year, when contract negotiations didn’t make that possible. Paradise Amusements wanted the chamber to guarantee a level of sales or assist in promoting the carnival saying attendance had continued to decline for years making it hard for them to make it pay for them to come. The chamber decided to have an Old Time Carnival where non-profit organizations were invited to host carnival games as a fundraiser. Two years prior to that, the carnival also didn’t come to Newport because of late negotiations. Schueman said they will keep the public apprised of plans in coming months.

Man gets six months for role in highway death BY DON GRONNING OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – A Spokane man who was driving a vehicle that struck and killed a man who ran in front of his car on Highway 2 at Diamond Lake in March 2011 was sentenced Thursday, Nov. 1 to six months in jail for his role in the death. Kevin Patrick Shaw, 30, pled guilty to driving under the influence, tampering with a witness and possession of oxycodone. Shaw was driving the vehicle that struck and killed Timothy James Davis late at night. Although Shaw was originally arrested for vehicular homicide, deputy prosecutor Tony Koures said that evidence did not support such a charge because Davis ran into the road and the collision couldn’t be avoided. Defense attorney Robin McCroskey said that Pend Oreille County Superior Court Judge Pat Monasmith said in court that a sober driver could have been driving and come to the same result. Monasmith said that none of the charges indicated that Shaw being under the influence of alcohol and marijuana was the cause of Davis’s death. According to the Washington State Patrol report on the investigation of the death, Shaw was driving though the Diamond Lake area with two passengers about 3 a.m. March 26, 2011, when Davis went onto the road to retrieve a bottle. At the time of his death,

Davis was wearing a black trench coat and six other shirts or coats and two pairs of pants. A witness walking with Davis saw the collision. She reported that Davis had been drinking and threw down a bottle into the road. He was struck when he went to retrieve the bottle. Davis had been at Diamond Lake to see another person. That person and her husband ran him off and were on the phone with 911 when they heard the sound of a crash. She went to the scene of the crash, where she saw the male driver exit the car. When the man got back into the car and attempted to leave, she stepped in front of the vehicle and prevented him from leaving, according to the report. She reported Shaw then got out of the car and ran into the woods with a duffle bag. When he returned he did not have the bag. Law enforcement officers found the duffle bag when they arrived. It contained a small amount of marijuana, scales and oxicodone. A blood draw on Shaw showed he had alcohol and marijuana in his system. He had a blood alcohol level of .08. Shaw pled guilty to DUI, possession of the oxycodone in the duffle bag and witness tampering. The possession and witness tampering charges are felonies and the DUI is a gross misdemeanor. The basis for the witness tampering charge was that Shaw asked the woman in the car with him to say she was driving.

College tuition fix proves to be elusive

Political Spring in county and country

BY THE JACKSONVILLE DAILY NEWS

There’s more potentially bad news coming for college students, future college students and beleaguered parents of the students. The national average annual tuition at four-year universities is $8,200, yet tuition in many states may be going up, for a variety of reasons. Tuition may be going up just because the student is majoring in a certain subject, or attending a large state school over a smaller state school or community college. Tuition inflation is running

W

hen this issue comes off the press the election results from county commissioner to President will be in. Although some close races will take longer to decide, the actual election races will be over. And for most people that hasn’t come soon enough. We want to be in the pact of those political watchers writing that it’s time for a political spring to begin after a long ugly winter. Specifically, it’s time to work together from county courthouses to the White House on solving the economic problems. They have gone on too long and are impacting those living today and will continue to plague people for decades. Our leaders must get to work together to balance budgets, make government more efficient and grow the economy. This new political spring should include making all government actions clear to the people. It isn’t a time to hide from public scrutiny; the ugly campaigns in local, state and national races had the common theme of distrust of the candidates by the people. Even if only partially true, that is the perception and after January it’s time to change that view. Work together, maintain an open government process and everything will be alright. Is that naïve? We don’t think so, it has happened before in government and we want to believe it will again. One thing is for sure, we will be there to record what our leaders do with this opportunity or fail to do. --FJW

Sid Snyder was a treasure Sid Snyder was part of the furniture in Olympia when I was put on the political beat by my editor way back in 1961. I knew him from when he was House clerk, then secretary of the Senate, then senator and finally Senate Democratic leader. He preceded me by a dozen years, starting in as an elevator operator, moving up to bill room supervisor and on to assistant House clerk. Sid, who died Oct. 14 at 86, was that rare commodity in politics, a thoroughly nice man. I never heard him say a mean word about anybody or anybody say a mean word about him. Which was why I was surprised in 1995 to read in a story in the Post Intelligencer by Connie Chung that in an interview with her he referred to Congresswoman Linda Smith as “a selfpromoting, miserable bitch.” “What in the word possessed you to say that?” I demanded of Snyder, let alone doing it in front of a P-I reporter? “Adele, I’ll never know ‘til my dying day,” he said. “I never talk about anybody. As soon as I heard myself saying it, I told the reporter, please don’t print that. She said, ‘It isn’t on the tape.’” But, of course, it was on the tape and it appeared in print with the reporter justifying the usage by quoting Snyder as saying, “I didn’t know the tape recorder was on.” So the boss of the Senate got Connie Chunged, especially considering other scars left by the interview. Implications that there was friction in his marriage because the reporter didn’t understand, as everybody and their brother in Olympia did, that the complaining letters Bette Snyder wrote for public consumption each session were a running gag. And such strange and gratuitous comments in a news story as, “Most of his constituents though don’t seem to worry that Snyder is secretly pursing personal gain through public office.” Personal gain? True, Sid was a millionaire but he worked his butt off for years in the grocery business in southwest Washington to get there. There are those who go to Olympia to make their fortune but there have been many

wealthy men, mostly men, who are in and around the Legislature simply because they love politics. He was one of them. So I was as shocked and surprised as anybody to read his remark about the Republican who was his 3rd district representative in Congress. Even when we were just shooting the breeze, off the record, he never used language like that. GUEST So would I OPINION have printed it if he had said that ADELE to me? I would FERGUSON CORRESPONDENT have asked him, do you really mean to say that? When he said no, I wouldn’t use it. It’s not hard to tell when someone is talking for quote and when they slip out of gear, as it were. If you operate under the rule that anything said is on the record, as some reporters do, you aren’t going to find out a lot of things that will make understanding the process easier, and which don’t involve screwing the public. Sources will dry up or lead you astray. I’ve seen that happen to reporters who agreed to go off the record and then used the quotes anyway. The real Sid Snyder was the one who agonized for days over the inappropriateness of his behavior and then publicly apologized on the floor of the Senate. He was a devoted husband in a place that regularly chews up families and spits them out. He was valued for his institutional memory and his knowledge of the rules, in which he believed implicitly. He quit once because the Republicans while in the majority misused the rules, going so far as to send a letter of resignation to the governor and cleaning out his desk, but set off such a wave of protest and appeals to reconsider, he stayed four more years. Sid Snyder was a treasure. There’ll never be another like him. (Adele Ferguson can be reached at P.O. Box 69, Hansville, WA 98340.)

|| Growth management didn’t help the west side To the editor: The Miner recently showed demonstrators at the Shoreline Master Program meeting. What they were protesting is the result of poor public policy for property growth management. When I lived in Western Washington in the 1970s I recall the cry for growth management to save the quality of life from the big developers and later what became urban sprawl in many communities across America. Take a trip over to Western Washington and see the result of growth management. The I-5 freeway corridor is packed with high-density development and the roads have traffic jams and delays. It’s hard to see what growth management saved in the quality of life. What growth management did do was give governments lots of money from property taxes and development fees. That money in turn has built more government bureaucracy and vastly increased the cost to develop property for any reason. Growth management also had other consequences that contributed to the current housing and economic crisis by artificially increasing the value of real estate. Government restrictions on property development limits the supply of property and therefore increases the price of new development. The property owner is then faced with artificial increases in real estate commission, sales tax, insurance, architectural and engineering plans, legal fees, and permit fees. These costs make property more exclusive and expensive. Young and growing families are often priced right out of the now overpriced market. In the case of growth management the government protects nothing but itself. The land or environment isn’t saved from over development and that is proved by what happened with the I-5 corridor development. One year you are picking strawberries on a family farm and the next

year it’s a Wal-Mart Supercenter. Yes, government bureaucrats and consultants rake in millions and nothing gets saved or protected from development. -Pete Scobby Newport

A day for veterans To the editor: Nov. 11 is the day set aside by Americans to honor all our military veterans. This has been our custom since the First World War ended and will likely continue for as long as there are veterans to honor. As a military veteran myself, I am grateful to a nation that considers our service and sacrifice to be worthy of this honor and I am sure that other veterans share that feeling. Thank you America for believing in us and supporting all our veterans during and after their military service. Most veterans ask for little else and go about their post military lives building a family and career and going about their lives doing the things free men/women do that makes America the greatest country in the world. Many also seek out other veterans to affiliate with and share a common bond established during their service. As the current Post Commander of the Newport Veterans of Foreign Wars I would like to take this opportunity to invite those veterans who have served our nation in a foreign war to join our Post and discover what the VFW has to offer our veterans. Those veterans of foreign wars who would like to know more about the Newport VFW are encouraged to contact me at 509447-0391, VFW Post Quartermaster Chuck Amburgey at 509447-3087 or any other member of the VFW for more information. -Jerry Weeks Newport

Even though extreme weather events are increasing, such as last year’s severe drought in the Midwest and the super storm that struck the East Coast last week, the topic of climate change has been missing from the political discussions, including the presidential debates. Why do you think that is? Because climate change is only an illusion. Any one storm or drought signifies nothing. Weather is cyclical. I don’t know. It seems that the stakes are high enough that even if we aren’t sure the climate change is human caused, we should err on the side of caution. Because neither presidential candidate nor the Republican or Democratic parties have the courage to acknowledge what is accepted as fact through the world: That humans cause climate change.

is grounded in the belief that people are accountable to God for their conduct. Religious devotion is critical to public virtue and a great benefit to society. We have every right to be bold. We need to protect important civic values like honesty, morality, integrity, civility, respect for law and basic human rights, which flourish under religious influence. Society has become decadent under the rise of secularism, which rejects a moral view of the world based on Judeo-Christian values. Today, we need to be concerned about the spread of pornography, poverty, abuse, abortion, homosexuality and violence. Where there is no moral objective, there is no preference for moral behaviors. In the final drafting of the U.S. Constitution the founders understood the necessity of the Bill of Rights’ guarantee of freedom of religion. We must repair the moral fabric of our nation. Christians should stop contending with each other and unite in friendship and mutually shared moral principles. We should be civil in our discussions and respectful in our interactions as we unite to strengthen families and marriages, demand more morality in the media, address the needs of the poor and speak out on matters of Christian conscience regarding the social issues of our times. The moral basis of civility is the Golden Rule. Faith requires that we treat our neighbors with respect. Let Christians put their differences behind them, and unite under common moral principles to present a larger, united Christian voice. Let us become one nation under God again. There are some who feel that venting their personal anger or deeply held opinions is more important than conducting themselves as the Savior. How we disagree is a real measure of who we are. Honesty, civility and integrity is needed in government. -Betty Whalin Oldtown

VFW post needs support of younger veterans To the editor: With Veterans Day coming up, I got to thinking about the local honor detail I usually help with. We get together in uniform to present the flag, to offer a prayer to the veterans that have fallen and to those who have passed, and to remind everybody else of that aspect of American life which touches us all. At first, I was just thinking about getting my uniform together, remembering back a few years, when I did this with no uniform, sometimes borrowing a hat. As I was looking into a mirror to comb my hair, I began to wonder if there would be enough people for the detail. And looking back at me from the mirror was this way older guy, graying out fast, somewhat paunchy body that looked like to could go at any time. Then it struck me. Who is going to replace me for honors detail when this body does give up the ghost? Your local VFW membership is dying out. Veterans of WWII, Korea and Vietnam largely make up our post. I’m a Vietnam era veteran and I’m 64. Korea was 10 years earlier and WWII was 15. We have a hard time having enough members show for our quarterly meetings (a legal quorum is six) because over half the members (26) were wheelchair bound or bedridden. There could be more of that era veterans out there who could answer the calling, and they would be more than welcome. But that doesn’t change the dynamic. We have lots of veterans of more recent American foreign involvement living in our area. I highlight the VFW Post 5673 problem to them and say that belonging is a very personal decision and not everyone will want to. I say to them, you’ve already earned the right to make the choice. But if you decide this is for you, we could use your help now. -Mike Wolever Senior Vice Commander Newport VFW Post 5673

PUD approves contract with new manager BY JANELLE ATYEO OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – The Pend Oreille Public Utility District approved an employment contract with its new general manager, John Jordan. While Jordan has been in the job since Oct. 23, the board approved the contract a week later at its regular meeting. The five-and-half-year agreement, good through March 1, 2018, covers termination and lays out the general service Jordan will provide the district as general manager. A separate resolution the board passed last week sets the salary. The pay remains the same as the previous general manager, Jay Pickett, who ended his

employment after five months with the PUD in a mutual agreement with the board. Jordan will make $155,000 in the first year, increasing by 4 percent Nov. 1, 2013. Jordan will get a 4 percent increase each Nov. 1 through 2017, according to the resolution. Jordan said the salary is about 10 percent higher than what he made as director of finance, the position he had at the district for the last 18 years. The general manager supervises staff, advises the board of commissioners and promotes goodwill for the district and customer relations, according to the agreement. The board will review the performance of the general manager from time to time, as the

commissioners deem appropriate. Recognizing his 18 years of service to the district, the agreement has a clause stating that if Jordan’s employment as general manager is terminated without cause before March 2015, the district agrees to employ Jordan in an alternative position through that date. Should that occur, his salary would be at least 90 percent of his current pay. After March 2015, the agreement allows for a $50,000 severance if terminated without cause, meaning there was no problem with misconduct or carrying out duties of the job. Jordan, who will be 60 this winter, said he is currently planning to work through age 65.

Retail sales up in Pend Oreille County BY JANELLE ATYEO OF THE MINER

OLYMPIA – Retail sales are picking up in Pend Oreille County, mostly thanks to a jump in wholesale sales. For the second quarter of the year, Pend Oreille County sales were up 51 percent from a year ago. Taxable sales from April through June this year amounted to just more than $33 million, according to the latest statistics available through the Washington State Department of Revenue. The biggest jump was in wholesale trade, from $3 million in the second quarter last year to $13.67 million this year. Normally wholesalers don’t charge retail sales tax because they are usually selling to a retailer, who then charges sales tax to the end user. Sales tax is due when the wholesaler sells directly to the customer. The Department of Revenue can’t disclose which business reported the sales. It is likely associated with some large project, such as the fiber optic expansion or turbine replacement at Box Canyon Dam. The Pend Oreille Public Utility District is leading both projects, and the district pays taxes to the contractor for the materials. The PUD spent about $1.24 million on the turbine project in the first quarter of the year. On the fiber project, the PUD paid about $1.13 million. More detailed statistics available for the first quarter of the year show that the largest amount of wholesale business was in electrical and electronic

goods, amounting to $4.6 million. Another $861,000 came from industrial machinery and equipment. While the construction of new single-family homes showed a big jump earlier this year, activity was down slightly in the second quarter compared to the same timeframe last year. Construction work totaled $4.6 million over the spring of 2012 compared to $4.7 million at the same time last year. Statewide, construction is up 7 percent. Other large retail sectors for Pend Oreille County include telecommunication services, including wired and wireless. The information category totaled $1.08 million in sales for the first quarter. Other retail trade included $311,000 from auto dealers, $176,000 from gas stations, and $328,000 from other stores. In Metaline, sales were up by 66 percent in the second quarter, due mostly to wholesale machinery and equipment sales. Metaline Falls increased by nearly 37 percent, and Cusick was up by 16 percent. Ione was about in line with sales a year ago, and Newport actually lost some ground compared to the previous year. Sales were down by 1.82 percent. Pend Oreille County saw the biggest gain in retail sales statewide. The state average was an increase of 4.7 percent. Second in growth to Pend Oreille County was Whitman County, which saw a 34 percent boost. Of the county’s 7.6 percent sales tax, 6.5 percent of that goes to the state, and 1.1 stays in the county.

Sales have risen modestly since 2009, but still have not reached 2008 levels. Retail trade alone was up only 4.25 percent to $7 million for the second quarter. That’s below the state average 5.28 percent growth. Retail trade makes up part of the taxable sales. It includes retailers such as grocery stories, car dealers and other shops that sell merchandise. The category excludes industries such as construction and services – restaurants, health services and recreation, for example. Metaline saw an increase of 45 percent, 12 percent in Ione, and 6 percent in Newport. Cusick remained the about the same compared to a year ago, Metaline Falls was down by 2 percent. Some of the biggest retail sectors in Pend Oreille County are grocery stores ($1.9 million in taxable sales last quarter), auto dealers and parts ($1.2 million combined), building materials ($817,000), gas stations and convenience stores ($514,000), electronics and appliance stores ($407,000), and e-commerce or mail order ($314,000). Across the state, accommodations and food services increased 5.4 percent to $3.2 billion, and general merchandise sales were up 2.1 percent to $2.4 billion. Pend Oreille saw a 6 percent increase in food services, and a 2 percent growth in accommodations. Restaurants, food services and drinking establishments brought in $1.62 million, and accommodations such as motels brought in nearly $257,000.

COLLEGE | FROM PAGE 4A

at about an annual rate of 4 percent for both public and private colleges, the Washington Post reported last Wednesday. That’s quite a bit lower than the double-digit increases of past years, but the nation is in an economic slump and every percentage point rise takes a bigger bite out of family incomes. Will the inflationary cycle in higher education ever end?

Area forest crews supporting Hurricane Sandy relief COEUR D’ALENE – Drawing on their expertise in emergency response and management, FEMA has requested assistance from the U.S. Forest Service in Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. A 20-person crew of Idaho Panhandle National Forest firefighters from communities throughout north Idaho will be sent back east to assist with relief efforts. The crew was part of a larger contingency of relief workers that left Saturday morning, Nov. 3 from Missoula, travelling to Harrisburg, Penn. Ultimately the crew is most likely to be assisting with relief efforts in New Jersey. “We are glad to be of assistance and will provide whatever is necessary to help out,” IPNF Supervisor Mary Farnsworth said. “Although our firefighters are most well known for their wildland firefighting, Forest Service crews have skills applicable to all types of emergency hazards. In the past our crews have assisted with a wide range of disasters including hurricanes, the Space Shuttle recovery in Texas and the 9/11 disaster response.” The firefighters being deployed are prepared for a typical 14-day assignment but can handle an extended stay if needed. Also, if FEMA were to request additional help the Forest Service and partnering agencies throughout north Idaho are ready to assist.

Tribe aims to stop herbicide treatment at Calispell Lake Duck Club wants to remove bulrush for better waterfowl habitat BY JANELLE ATYEO OF THE MINER

COURTESY PHOTO|LAKELAND RESTORATION

Bulrush was to be targeted at Calispell Lake in the areas pinpointed here. The Kalispel Tribe is appealing the state’s decision to approve a permit for the weed treatment. A hearing is set for late November.

Selkirk High School wrestling team gets new mats IONE – After much fundraising effort, the Selkirk High School wrestlers received a new set of mats Oct. 18. It’s the first new mat for the team in 31 years. The last set was purchased in 1981 when coach Keith Saxe was a freshman and assistant coach Kenny Weiss was a sophomore at Selkirk High School. Most of the money for the mats was donated by the North Pend Oreille Valley Lions Club. The

team earned $1,000 towards the mats by providing shuttle rides during Ione’s Down River Days celebration this past July, and other donations. The mats were purchased from Resilite and are the new lightweight, easy-tocarry kind. “Having these new mats will make a big difference in our high school wrestling program,” said coach Saxe. “The old mats were way too thin, and really didn’t have much left to them.

These new ones are thick and soft. This will be a lot safer for the wrestlers.” The Selkirk team has consistently sent members of the team on to state since they became eligible for post-season tournaments in 2008. “We have a really strong group of kids that love the sport of wrestling, now thanks to the Lions Club and community support the team will only get better,” Saxe said.

CUSICK – The Kalispel Tribe of Indians has appealed the state’s decision to approve an herbicide treatment on Calispell Lake targeting native bulrush. The Calispell Duck Club was planning a project to remove the bulrush to improve habitat for waterfowl at the lake. Using the Pend Oreille County Noxious Weed Control board’s aquatic herbicide permit, the Duck Club was planning to hire Lakeland Restoration, the Priest Riverbased company that also did work at Diamond Lake this year, to apply Glyphosate and Imazapyr herbicides, targeting the tall soft-stemmed plant. The Washington State Department of Ecology gave the go ahead to perform work under the county permit, subject to a 30-day appeal period. The tribe submitted an appeal in late September. A hearing on the matter will take place before the state’s independent, quasi-judicial Pollution Control Hearings Board, which is scheduled for Nov. 28 in Olympia. County weed control coordinator Sharon Sorby said they will participate via teleconference. The lake has experienced a lot of sedimentation over the years, and bull rush and cattails has become more abundant, Sorby explained. While the tribe fully supports the duck club’s desire to improve hunting conditions, it would favor non-toxic control methods, according to

the appeal prepared by Deane Osterman, executive director of the Kalispel Natural Resources Department. The tribe is concerned with water quality issues if herbicides cause the bulrush to die and decay around the lake, depleting the oxygen in the water downstream in Calispell Creek, a popular fishing area for tribe members, which flows through the reservation. While the permit would allow for treatment of up to five acres, it doesn’t require removing the decay-

ing plants. That could eventually increase algae production and oxygen demand in coming years, according to the tribe’s argument. The tribe also argues that the weed board’s permit doesn’t give the authority to treat bulrush because it is not a noxious weed. The Kalispel people harvested bulrush and other native plants historically, for use as textile, bedding and building homes. Calispell Lake itself was an important winter village for the Kalispels.

Bulrush is a plant native to the area, but it is not ideal for nesting waterfowl. It has a light green stem that flowers just below the tip.

Beardmore Building topic at National Preservation Conference Runberg presents case study at Spokane conference SEATTLE – Seattle architect and developer of the Beardmore Building in Priest River, Brian Runberg spoke at the National Preservation Conference 2012’s “Deep Energy Savings: New Life for Old Buildings,” Saturday, Nov. 3, in Spokane. Runberg specializes in urban mixed-use housing and adaptive reuse projects. As both architect and developer, Runberg presented a case study on his historic restoration and adaptive reuse of The Beardmore Building. This regional case study focused on sustainably retrofitting masonry buildings, while preserving building history. The LEED Gold certified building is on the National Register of Historic Places and has received several national and regional design awards for its adaptive reuse. “The Beardmore Block epitomizes the successful integration of historic preservation and sustainability … and demonstrates the positive impact that a small but committed group of individuals can make,” said Idaho Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter. “The transformation of a decaying, obsolete shell into a high performance, healthy and vibrant environment carries many benefits including lower operating costs and greater lasting quality. Yet equally important is the preservation of an important historic landmark, one in which my own history is tied,” Runberg said. The Beardmore Building, a historic and cultural landmark, was designed by renowned Spokane architects Whitehouse and Price in 1922 for Runberg’s great- grandfather, north Idaho timber and mining pioneer, Charles Beardmore. The sensitive restoration and adaptation of the building is helping to revitalize Priest River’s historic downtown. After 30 years of outside ownership Runberg bought the flagship property in 2006 and restored it using its original architecture while incorporating green technologies. The building now operates on 66 percent less energy per square foot than the average offices in the United States, according to a recent NEEA energy audit.

IONE – The Selkirk football team finished its season on a high note, beating Wilbur-Creston 40-36 Friday night. “The boys did a good job versus Wilbur-Creston,” head coach Kelly Cain said. “We started off slowly, however.” After receiving the opening kickoff, Selkirk gave up a safety on the third play of the game on a holding penalty in the end zone. Selkirk then scored two touchdowns, a 48-yard pass from Dominic Cain to Mikey Weiss, and then a 75-yard fumble return by Emery Maupin after a strip by Cain. W-C scored in the second quarter to cut the lead to 12-8. Selkirk answered two plays later on a 49-yard pass from Cain to Maupin. On W-C’s next possession, Weiss intercepted a pass and on the next play Cain found Maupin for a 66yard TD pass. Selkirk built a 34 -20 halftime lead. “We then scored on our first possession of the second half. A 27-yard pass from Cain to Maupin,” coach Cain said. W-C scored the next 16 points to cut the lead to four. Weiss batted down a pass on fourth down at Selkirk’s own 15 to end W-C’s final threat. The ball turned over on downs with a minute left and the Rangers were able to run out the clock. Cain went eight of 15 for 257 yards passing and five touchdowns. Maupin had five receptions for 177 yards and three TDs and Weiss had three receptions for 80 yards and two TDs. Michael Haskins had 15 carries for 72 yards.

NEWPORT – Head coach Zac Farnam expected it to be a tough game when Newport hosted Chelan Friday night on the gridiron. It was tough, but not a runaway, especially given that Newport was without running back Braden Barranco, and lost three more players during the game. Chelan scored two touchdowns on a 51-yard rushing TD and a twoyard TD. Newport responded with a three-yard toss from Ryan Rapp to Cody Phillips. Chelan led 13-6 at the end of the first quarter. Neither team scored in the second. Newport tied it up in the third with a 1-yard rushing TD by Carter Schutz but Chelan answered with a TD by the end of the quarter. The crushing blow came in the fourth, when Chelan scored three touchdowns to win by 29. Newport coach Zac Farnam is pleased with his team’s performance. “That was a team we had no business playing,” he said. “They’re a huge football team. Big and strong.” Senior lineman Jake Morse was kicked out of the game for throwing a punch, junior lineman Nathan Larson suffered an injured ankle and freshman lineman Ty McDaniel got pretty banged up and was taken out of the game. Barranco didn’t suit up because of a shoulder injury from last week. With Barranco out, Farnam said

City takes over Hometown Christmas BY MICHELLE NEDVED AND JANELLE ATYEO OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – A Hometown Christmas in Newport is in the works for the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Nov. 24, although the city is taking the reins rather than the Greater Newport Area Chamber of Commerce. Newport mayor Shirley Sands is organizing the event, which will include a visit from Santa Claus at the visitor’s center in Centennial Plaza in downtown Newport. Children can get their photo taken with the jolly elf from 1-4 p.m. The Soroptimist Club will provide treats and the city staff will be grilling hotdogs. Sands told the city council Monday evening, Nov. 5, that she got the message that the chamber planned to hand off the project on a late afternoon recently. The next day, she went to work organizing. The Pend Oreille County Historical Museum, located in Centennial Plaza, will be open Friday and Saturday during the celebration, and model trains will be on display Saturday. The museum is open each Friday and Saturday from then until Christmas. The Centennial Plaza Association, with the help of the Newport High School fire science students and Pend Oreille PUD, will light the community Christmas tree in the plaza. When the switch will be thrown on the tree is still being decided, according to association member Fred Willenbrock. A shop local event will run in

tandem with Black Friday and a Hometown Christmas, headed by Kitchen Shoppe owner and chamber board member Sue Scobby. Ten businesses will be open late for shoppers Friday and Saturday, Nov. 23-24, in what is being called “Keep the Cheer Here.” Other than photos with Santa on Saturday, Michelle Moody is providing a sleigh that will be placed on the sidewalk for photos and a “hobbit house,” like those seen on Highway 2 across from Diamond Lake. Children can get their picture taken with Christmas elves and the sleigh. The house will be set up in the parking lot near Connie and Clyde’s Barber Shop on Third Street and Washington Avenue. Sands said she would like to see these and annual community events continue. She said the city could pitch in more to put on the Easter egg hunt, trick-or-treating and the Christmas celebration. “Those are the things that businesses will be proud of,” she said. “The bottom line is we can do it together.” The chamber, for its part, is sponsoring the “Share the Cheer” holiday decorating contest, open to all members of the chamber, including the Newport/Oldtown, Cusick, Usk and Diamond Lake areas. Members are encouraged to decorate their storefront windows or foyer area in the holiday spirit. Ideally, according to the chamber, these decorations will stay up all winter long to entice locals and tourists alike to stop in and shop, dine or patronize local businesses.

METALINE FALLS – Towns are preparing their budgets for 2013. Before adopting the budgets, town councils will hold public hearings on the budget as well as on the property tax levy for the coming year. The Metaline Falls town council will have a hearing Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 6:30 p.m. on the property tax levy. The final budget hearing will follow at 7 p.m. The Metaline town council will hold a hearing Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 6:45 p.m. to review the tax levy and the annual budget. The levy certification resolution and budget ordinance will be presented for adoption at the regular meeting that follows at 7 p.m.



NOVEMBER 7, 2012 |

Metaline Falls water rates undecided after hearing IONE – After a hearing on proposed changes to the water rates for residents of Metaline Falls, Oct. 30, the PUD commissioners made no decision on the changes. It was up for discussion again at the Pend Oreille Public Utility District’s Nov. 6 meeting, after The Miner’s deadline. The hour-long hearing drew some public comment from the seven people present. They asked if any unused allotment could be rolled over to the next month, and they asked about a flat based sprinkling fee. Some also asked about ways

to reduce costs and looking at other possibilities before raising rates. PUD staff suggested raising the base rate by $4 from the current $60 per month in both 2013 and 2014, as well as an increase to the usage rate for both years. The current usage rate is 0.25 cents per gallon. The last rate increase was in 2007, and over the last few years, the system has lost 22 customers. PUD staff also cites rising costs of fuel, chemicals and other supplies in the need for raising rates.

Join scouts to explore fire safety IONE – The Ione-Metalines Cub Scouts of Pack 974 and Boy Scouts of Troop 975 are inviting boys and their parents to join them for a special activity at the Tiger Fire Station, 390442 Highway 20 in Ione Thursday, Nov. 15 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Scouts will be receiving awards and all boys will be learning about safe use of fire with Chief Jody Rogers and other volunteer firefighters. They will get to investigate the fire truck and ambulance. Refreshments will be served. This is an opportunity to see scouts in action, and to consider signing up boys for Cub or Boy Scouts. Scouting is open to boys from first through 12th grades, Selkirk students or homeschooled boys. Getting involved in Cub or Boy

Scouts is an excellent way for home-schooled boys to make new friends and engage in activities beyond their family circle, organizers said. There are no school, club, or specific religious affiliations implied with Cub Scout Pack 974 and Boy Scout Troop 975. All are welcome. Cub Scout Pack 974 is sponsored by Teck mine, and usually meets every other Thursday evening. The boys also engage in special events such as Trailblazer Day in October at Camp Cowles on Diamond Lake, practicing archery, bb gun shooting, BMX bike riding, and similar activities. Boy Scout Troop 975 currently meets Thursdays after school at the sponsoring agency, the American Legion in Metaline

Falls. The troop adjusts meetings to work around sport schedules. This coming weekend the boys will have a camp “overnighter” with Troop 935. For more information, call Craig Jenkins at 509-442-2395 for Boy Scouts or Sally Noble at 509-638-7042 for Cub Scouts.

the Battle of the Bulge. Wolever said the group was trying to get Irwin’s DD2, a form that highlights a veteran’s military career. As they began their digging, however, they found that in addition to his service in the U.S. Army, the VFW’s dedication to Irwin was because of his service after the war. “He was just an overall nice guy,” Wolever said. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Irwin worked as the building engineer for the George Air Force Base Hospital near Los

Angeles. He would take monthly trips into Mexico to visit the La Mision orphanage when a friend told him of the Green Olive orphanage, which was closer and lesser known that La Mision. “I went there and found they didn’t have anything to eat,” Irwin told the Daily Press in December 1970, the newspaper covering the Victor Valley in California. Irwin began his regular trips, every 28 days, delivering two beer boxes of meat, rice, potatoes and other supplements. Christmas of 1970 brought an extra surprise for the orphans, who would yell “Carne!” when

they heard Irwin coming down the road. He brought along 60 stockings filled with toys, apples, oranges, tangerines and other goodies. Irwin was born in 1909 to John and Nellie in Pana, Ill. They moved to Pomona City, Calif., in the 1920s and he enlisted in the U.S. Army as a private in Los Angeles, said Karen Smith, Irwin’s step-granddaughter who lives in Priest River. Irwin raised cows and hogs in Victorville, Calif., in the 1950s and 60s and when he and Olive moved to Newport in 1978, he raised pigs and worked with 4-H

and the Pend Oreille County Fair. “He was instrumental in getting the swine scales at the fairgrounds,” Smith said. Irwin also worked with the Future Farmers of America and helped get kids interested in raising swine. When the VFW was named after Irwin, members then heralded him as, “one of the finest men ever to cross the threshold of a Veterans of Foreign Wars post,” according to an article that ran in a 1986 issue of The Newport Miner. Thirty-five members and their wives attended the ceremony, held at the Newport Eagles, where

UNION | Union, county have reached economic agreement FROM PAGE 1

Three other county union groups have been without a contract this year as negotiations went on – sheriff’s deputies, corrections officers and dispatchers. They voted Thursday, Nov. 1, but turned down the county’s latest offer. They’ll be headed to mediation. The county and the unions mutually decided to file, according to Steve Bruchman, Teamsters business representative. Neither the county nor the union will have to pay for the mediator; he or she is provided by the Public Employee Relations Commission at no charge. The union and the county haven’t reached an agreement on some economic issues, as well as some other outstanding issues. Bruchman did not want to specify, saying he doesn’t intend to bargain in public. Bruchman noted that the unions are sensitive to the county’s economic situation. “We fully recognize the totality of the economic circumstance at the local, regional and national level, and that is always part of our discussions.” he said. No employees got cost of living increases this year. Employees in the courthouse/Hall of Justice union and the deputy prosecutors were last granted a cost of living pay raise in 2011. The raise was laid out in their labor contracts’ wages and salary plan. It granted a 3 percent cost of living pay increase in 2009, and allowed for 2- to 5-percent raises in each 2010 and 2011, depending on the consumer price index. That was on the lower side each year, and employees got a 2-percent bump. Commissioners asked union employees to forego their plannedfor raises in 2011 to help balance the budget. The unions considered it but voted it down and took their 2-percent increase. Union employees were also asked in both 2010 and 2011 to take unpaid furlough days. Most union groups agreed in 2010, but in 2011, only the courthouse and Hall of Justice employees and the deputy prosecutors took furloughs. As for the county’s contribution to employee medical benefits, the last contract set $560 per month as the employer’s contribution to medical and dental coverage. With the $25 per month increase in the new contract, the county will contribute $585 per month. Non-elected department heads got raises in 2011, but salaries for elected officials have been frozen since 2010.

Two commissioners will actually have their wages cut by 5 percent next year, according to the decision of the salary commission. Newly elected District 1 and 3 commissioners will be paid $50,490 for the year while District 2’s commissioner, newly appointed Mike Manus, will make $53,148. It will pretty much be a wash budget-wise, because the salary commission also felt strongly that the commissioners who hadn’t previously should be taking a reimbursement for their travel expenses. That amounts to about $3,000 per year for each commissioner. The county’s road union may opt to open its contract to negotiate wages in 2013. Some road employees were upset to learn that another bargaining unit was awarded a pay increase after they approved their six-year contract early this year without any cost of living increases laid out. A “me too” clause in the road contract allowed employees to get the same increase if another unit bargains for one, but it applied

only to 2012. The 1 percent raise for courthouse, Hall of Justice and prosecutor employees takes effect in 2013. Dean Vercruysse, staff representative for AFL-CIO 1135P, the county’s road union, said the road employees have been good about working with the county through the economic downturn. “They know the county is not in the best financial shape. That’s why we settled the way we did last year,” he said. He added that if other groups get a raise, he feels the county should remember the public works employees that haven’t had a raise. Road workers also point to the levy shift as a way their depart-

ment has helped the county financially. This year, $500,000 worth of levy power was shifted from the road department to the general fund. Roads was backfilled with $100,000 from the public facilities fund. Over the last seven years, $2.65 million in levy power has been shifted from roads. The county’s IT workers have a union contract that expires at the end of this year. Bruchman said they’ll start negotiations then. The counseling services employees are bargaining for their first union contract. Bruchman said they’re still proceeding, but the other unions that already have contracts are moving ahead of counseling services.

Irwin had also been a member. Dignitaries from around the state also attended. Irwin’s wife Olive received the plaque. She passed away in 2007. Wolever said there are currently 28 members of the VFW in Newport, with about eight to nine members that are really active. “Over half are wheelchair bound or bedridden,” he said.

New forest road open for public use NEWPORT – The U.S. Forest Service has completed a 2.25mile reroute of Middle Branch of LeClerc Creek Road (Forest Road 1935) as part of a project to benefit water quality and fish habitat. The re-routed section of road begins near the new bridge crossing of the Middle Branch of LeClerc Creek and is relocated away from the bottom of the drainage. That is meant to help restore the stream habitat by lowering summer water temperatures, improving vegetation along the creek, and preventing erosion. The old 2.6-mile section of road is currently being decommis-

sioned and is no longer open to motor vehicle use. That involves removing fish passage barriers at four locations and restoring the stream channel there, as well as floodplain re-establishment and re-contouring the road. The project is funded through a grant from the Salmon Recovery Funding Board under the support of the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office. Many entities have contributed to and supported this project including the Kalispel Tribe, who sponsored the project and provided monetary assistance; Stimson Lumber Company who is the road cost share cooperator;

Pend Oreille PUD, who completed much of the stream restoration work; Pend Oreille County who completed previous stream restoration work downstream of this project; Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife who provided technical support for the design; and individuals from various agencies with the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) and local individuals with the Citizen’s Advisory Group (CAG), all of whom reviewed and approved this project. For more information, contact the Newport Ranger District at 509-447-7300 or Sullivan Lake Ranger District at 509-4467500.

COURTESY MAP|U.S. FOREST SERVICE

Forest Service Road 1935 along the Middle Branch of LeClerc Creek has been rerouted to help reduce negative impacts on the creek. The crosshatched section of the road has been closed to traffic.

Federal funds awarded for weed control BY JANELLE ATYEO OF THE MINER

COLVILLE – A few weed control projects were amongst those awarded federal Title 2 funds through the Colville National Forest’s Resource Advisory Committee this month. The Pend Oreille County Weed Board received funding for two projects. The neighborhood cost share program, which helps landowners pay for weed treatment, got $50,000, about the same as last year’s award. And the early detection, rapid response

project received $15,000. Weed control coordinator Sharon Sorby said that will go toward the weed board’s basic program to look for weeds that are mandatory to control. She’s hoping there will also be enough to hire an extra seasonal weed sprayer. She hopes they’ll have three inspectors next year. The Pend Oreille Public Utility District did not apply for more funding for its milfoil control program. Last year, the district was awarded $47,500 to be used over a three-year timeframe. The funding comes through the Secure Rural Schools and Com-

munity Self-determination Act for projects that benefit land on or adjacent to the National Forest. Nearly $400,000 was allocated to projects in Pend Oreille, Stevens and Ferry counties. Each county received $10,000 for the forest damage response team, a little more than the program was awarded last year. The team of youth cleans litter from recreation lands, restores areas damaged by vehicles, and builds fences, among other projects. The largest award went to the Pend Oreille County road department for replacing the gabion

retaining wall on Sullivan Lake Road. The county received $95,000 to put toward the project. Projects in Stevens County included a $50,000 road maintenance projects around Abercrombie and Sherlock mountains and $10,000 for milfoil control at the Little Pend Oreille Chain of Lakes. Ferry County projects include weed control, Kettle Crest puncheon replacement ($20,000), Gibraltar trailhead and trail construction ($30,000), a trail and dock at Trout Lake ($10,000), and Herron Creek road resurfacing ($63,600).

NEWPORT – The Pend Oreille Count commissioners will hold a supplemental appropriations public hearing Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 10 a.m. at the commissioners meeting room at 625 W. Fourth St. The purpose is to adjust certain count budgets to accommoNovember 7, 2012 grants or extra expenditures that came in over the last year. The auditor did not have a list of specific adjustments yet.

Pend Oreille library board moves meeting NEWPORT – The Pend Oreille County Library District moved its regularly scheduled board meeting from Nov. 22 to Nov. 29 at 6 p.m. due to the Thanksgiving holiday. The annual budget hearing will be held before the board meeting at 4 p.m. The location of the two meetings is the PUD Box Canyon Conference Room on Washington Avenue in Newport.
