League of Women Voters
Pullman Community Update 5
MISSION STATEMENT The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

MODERN DAY DEBTOR’S PRISONS Monday, March 6, 2017 Umpqua Bank Community Room 6:30 p.m. WSU Global Scholars* will discuss economic discrimination in the criminal justice system. The Global Scholars team chose this topic, researched the subject, prepared information to present on the issue and won the sixth annual WSU Global Case Competition on April 8, 2016. Winning first place sent them to Geneva, Switzerland, last November, to present the material and their solutions to the United Nations there. They will present to Pullman residents what they did in Geneva and what they learned as a result. *Note: The WSU Global Campus, of which the Global Scholar’s Program is a part, has just been ranked in the top 15 programs in the country
ANNE LEWIS IN THE SPOTLIGHT I joined the League of Women Voters of Pullman in 2012. Although a certified paralegal, I could not claim much, if any, grasp of local and state government. In addition to offering numerous learning opportunities, participation in League has allowed me to voice questions and ideas and expand my leadership skills. I have held the positions of Back-Up Secretary, Observer Corps Chair, Nominations Chair, and have served on the Executive Committee for the past 3 years. The League of Women Voters is an organization with national, state and local levels and I have had the privilege and pleasure to represent our league at state and national events. League is inspiring and fun. It is also important. The more I witness, the more I feel each person has a “duty” to be involved in the world in which we are privileged to live. I encourage you to consider becoming more active in the Pullman community in some way. There is much to be learned and much work to do. I am confident that, as I found, you have more to offer than you can imagine.

OBSERVER CORPS – PULLMAN LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS The Open Meetings Law ensures “the right of all citizens to have advance notice of and to attend all meetings of public bodies at which any business affecting the public is discussed or acted upon, with certain limited exceptions to protect the public interest and preserve personal privacy.” A League of Women Voters Observer Corps program reports on decisions and actions that impact the community. A local League observer becomes the eyes and ears of the League by learning how government works and observing, identifying and reporting issues that are relevant to League and the community. Observers attend governmental meetings, note what happens at the meetings, and report back to the League, which can take action, if warranted, because the observer doesn’t take action. The presence of observers (who are not allowed to speak) let officials know that someone is watching to ensure that government agencies are fulfilling their responsibility to be transparent and accountable to the citizenry. Pullman’s Observer Corps is currently attending: Art Commission, Civil Service Commission, County Commission, Police Advisory Committee, Port of Whitman, Pullman City Council, Pullman Regional Hospital, Pullman Library Board, Pullman Parks and Recreation, Pullman Planning Commission, Pullman School District, Whitman County Planning Commission, and Whitman County Solid Waste Advisory Committee. Reports of League members can be found on their website: www.lwvpullman.org.
WASHINGTON STATE 2017 Legislative Agenda The League of Women Voters of Washington advocates/lobbies on a number of important issues in Olympia on our behalf: ELECTIONS • VOTING RIGHTS & CAMPAIGN FINANCE • EDUCATION• FAIR & ADEQUATE REVENUE SOCIAL POLICIES • ECONOMIC & SOCIAL JUSTICE • GUN SAFETY • HEALTH CARE MENTAL HEALTH • REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS • CLIMATE CHANGE ENERGY & NATURAL RESOURCES (shorelines, wetlands, and land use, waters, rivers)
FEBRUARY LEAGUE MEETING FOCUSED ON CLIMATE CHANGE
Global warming refers to the recent and ongoing rise in global average temperature near Earth's surface. Global warming is causing climate patterns to change. However, global warming itself represents only one aspect of climate change. Climate change refers to any significant change in the measures of climate lasting for an extended period of time. In other words, climate change includes major changes in temperature, precipitation, or wind patterns, among other effects, that occur over several decades or longer. The impacts of climate change ripple out across environments, animals, and peoples. The February 6 meeting focused on climate change and particularly on potential policies to address it. Virginia Lohr, Bertie Weddell, and Judy Meuth, members of the Palouse Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL), served as panel members. The panel discussed predicted impacts of climate change to the natural world, human activities like agriculture and other industry, and groups of people, as well as how those impacts are already happening. Panel members shared information on Americans’ views on climate change and on several proposed policy solutions to it, including regulations, cap and trade, and taxes. The panel concentrated on one solution, placing a revenue-neutral fee on carbon that would be returned to Americans via a monthly dividend. This proposal has garnered support across the political spectrum.

WHITMAN COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY ARCHIVE When the Whitman County Historical Society was founded in 1972, one of the major goals was to collect and preserve items of significance. Over the years the WCHS Archive has grown and now consists of over 700 collections representing historical facts from around the area, as well as more than 1500 photos, various historic maps, and numerous other items. It can be found on the first floor of Gladish in Room 103A and is open on Wednesday mornings between 9 and noon. Any person, whether a resident of the county or not, can view actual copies of old newspapers; peruse various indexes to birth, death, census, and cemetery records; see old yearbooks and plat books; along with being guided to the wealth of information in the various donated collections. The Archive space is shared with the Whitman County Genealogical Society, which maintains many indexes and other reference material. One noteworthy collection which has recently become more accessible is an alphabetized index to Pullman businesses from 1881-1993. It was complied by
Esther Pond Smith, a retired WSU home economist and wife of Dr. Stanley Smith, an architecture professor and designer of many WSU buildings. Through Esther’s work a researcher can trace the name, address, and often owner of the many businesses that were a vital part of Pullman’s history. Information about the Archives and other aspects of the Whitman County Historical Society can be found on their web site: whitmancountyhistoricalsociety. org. The Archive welcomes gifts of records, photographs, diaries, ledgers, and other materials that reflect the history of our county. The present collection is due to the generosity of those who have donated valuable materials to the Whitman County Historical Society for over forty years. Whitman County Historical Society office is located in Room 103a of the Gladish Community and Cultural Center, 115 NW State Street, Pullman, WA 99163

Studded Tires Studded tires are legal only from Nov. 1 to Mar. 31. Motorists using studded tires after the deadline could be cited by law enforcement and incur a fine.
studded tire damage is the rutting seen on interstate roads with higher speeds and traffic volumes. Studded tires also damage state, county and city roadways with high traffic. Ruts on the roadway lead to safety issues such as ponding Those traveling into higher elevations should carry chains and have approved traction tires year-round. When (standing water on the roadway), hydroplaning, excessive chains are required, studded tires alone will not meet the road spray and problems with "autopilot/steering" vehicle programs. chain requirement unless your vehicle is a four- or allwheel drive vehicle. There is no individual exception to the studded tire season. When traveling in Washington, you are required to follow the State of Washington's motor vehicle laws. Ultimately, WSDOT would like to see the use of tire studs phased out to improve safety and reduce pavement maintenance and preservation costs. WSDOT hopes the trend will at least move to the introduction of new, even lighter weighted studs. Abrasion from studded tires wears down pavement at a much greater rate than regular traffic.

Please sweep the gravel from the sidewalk in front of your home or business into the street (avoiding storm drains) so that we can pick it up with our street sweepers. Thanks for your cooperation in this annual gravel removal process.

Jessica Brooks Thank You
WCHS honors the legacy of Jessica Brooks, a remarkable young woman in her fourth and final year at Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, who was tragically killed in an automobile accident outside of Colfax, WA. Jessica was a beautiful member of the veterinary school community and a devoted trainer at Whitman County Humane Society. We are truly inspired by her legacy. She stood up for what she believed in, passionately supported local humane societies and donated
time to Fur Ball. She also attended Pups Parading the Palouse walks; even when she did not have a dog to walk, she still donated her time to serve as a dog-less walker and supported other attendees by interacting with them and their pets in positive, safe ways. She was a rare breed and a sincere advocate for shelter dogs and animals that need a little extra help and care. We are fortunate to have known her and are blessed by the generous donations made to WCHS in her name. She is deeply missed and will always be remembered.

SFCC-Pullman in the Community The SFCC-Pullman Associated Student Government hosted a Variety Show at Bishop Place Senior Living on Friday, 27 January, and we felt it was a good learning experience and a success. Participating in this variety show boosted our confidence, and we were pleased to have an excellent turnout of 46 people. We also found it rewarding to do community service. The residents enjoyed our youthful energy and they also appreciated the arts. We provided a variety of piano, vocal music, and poetry before ending with a fun singalong. Afterwards, some residents approached us requesting that we do this again. The Bishop Place staff were also extremely helpful, taking care of the set-up, sound system, and take-down for us. We hope to make the variety show a regular Spokane Falls Community College event in the future because of the benefits it offered to everyone involved.
FORMER STUDENT SPOTLIGHT Uriel Carmona My name is Uriel Carmona; I am a first generation college student. I was raised in Royal City, Washington. I chose to go to Spokane Falls Community College (SFCC) in Spokane the year after I graduated high school. After a year in Spokane, I transferred to SFCC in Pullman. SFCC played a role in my educational journey during my two years preparing me for Washington State University. SFCC gave me the opportunity to fit in classrooms that were not much different from high school class sizes. Transferring to the SFCC-Pullman campus also allowed me to slowly get familiar with the WSU campus and made my transfer from community college to a university smoother. The staff and professors always gave a warm welcoming environment that helped me feel comfortable to participate in class, and I even got a job as an office assistance and peer tutor. Now, I am completing my last semester at Washington State University where I will be graduating with a major in Criminal Justice and a minor in
The Pullman campus serves, on average, 30 international and undocumented students each quarter. Students, regardless of their immigration status, are welcome to attend. Qualified undocumented students have the right to attend college in the state of Washington under the “Real Hope Act,” also known as “Dream Act”.

Apply for a Scholarship! The Community Colleges of Spokane has many scholarships available. For 2017-2018 scholarships, apply at http:// ccsfoundation.org/scholarships/ by March 15, 2017. Political Science. My experience at WSU has been great because I became very involved. I am a member of the Aztec-based brotherhood, La Hermandad De O eMe Te, and I am the vice president for community service organizations for O eMe Te. I also held a positon as a senator for WSU College of Arts & Sciences. Lastly, I have been involved in a few internships, and I’m currently involved with the WSU police cadet program. In this internship I have been able to get hands-on experience and see what it is like to be in law enforcement.

ASSISTANT DEAN’S MESSAGE
In February, SFCC-Pullman student clubs sponsored two events I was able to attend: a 4-hour laser tag, mini-golf, and laser maze activity at the Cougar Entertainment Center and a film showing at Pullman Village Centre Cinemas. I laughed a lot at both activities and had a great time, as did the many students present. There are some big changes coming for SFCC-Pullman. They are very good changes, but they are creating some stress and extra work. I am grateful to the students here who helped remind me to laugh and enjoy myself, even when times are stressful.

Pullman Regional Hospital
New commissioner appointed to Pullman Regional Hospital Board Margaret Werre, retired operating room nurse, has been appointed to the Pullman Regional Hospital Board of Commissioners. She replaces Joy Drake, who left her position to relocate to Spokane in October 2016. Werre moved to Pullman in 2013 to be with her daughter and son-in-law. She recently came from Centralia where she worked as an OR nurse since 1989. Previous to that she worked as a nurse in Rock Springs, Wyoming. “I see myself as being new to this area and bringing a different perspective since I’ve worked in larger hospitals,” she said. Werre said she is looking forward to the hospital’s plans to expand surgical capabilities with the addition of a fourth operating room in July and planned expansion of Same Day Services. “I love being in healthcare and I love living in a small community,” she said. “I will work to continue to make Pullman a place where people want to live and can count on quality healthcare.”

School Discipline is About Learning Bill Holman Principal, Franklin Elementary School Many aspects of school have evolved over time, a notable one being school discipline. Not so long ago, a comprehensive discipline plan would have consisted of a list of rules and a list of consequences for breaking them. Implicit in this structure is a belief that the consequences and/or fear of the consequences provided enough of an incentive for students to ‘learn’ to follow the rules. Missing were strategies to reinforce value in responsibility, respect, citizenship and safety and opportunities for reinforcing those things. Several years ago, Pullman Public Schools began to explore a structure called Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). This system of behavior management outlines a more positive, proactive, culturally sensitive and data driven approach to behavior management. As a result, schools have taken steps toward systems that are quite different than models of old. To use Franklin Elementary as an example, we now begin each school year teaching expected behaviors in several contexts. Students cycle in groups to locations on the playground, in the hallways, lunchroom, bus zones, on buses and even in the bathrooms. The lessons, and all of our expectations, are based on the concepts of safety, respect and responsibility. All staff members are informed of the structures and the expectations. Most take part in delivering the lessons, which are presented in a fun and interactive manner. Positive behaviors are recognized in various ways, including through Fantastic Fox tickets. Staff members recognize things that students do by filling out a ticket and handing it to the student. Students bring those tickets to the office and place them in a box. Names are drawn each Friday at random and announced to the school along with their positive contribution. Students are very excited to bring the tickets in to the office, and office staff members congratulate each ticket owner as they do so. Data is collected through a system called SWIS. The results of the above steps have been positive, indicating a decrease in behavioral incidents over the past couple of years. The data allows us to track discipline trends and to adjust our practices as necessary. Equally as important is what happens when a student breaks a rule. A few years ago, staff
members at Franklin participated in a book study on Dr. Ross Greene’s Lost at School. The book was written to address behavior for students who do not seem to be successful in a traditional discipline model. Such students demonstrate that by breaking rules over and over, they receive consequences but fail to change their behavior. Dr. Greene outlines strategies that include truly empathizing with the student and involving the student in the solution to the problem. This approach fosters the ability to be culturally and socially sensitive as we collectively craft solutions. Not surprisingly, these strategies work well with all students. Proactively, we use curricula such as Second Step to teach and practice social emotional skills. Second Step is delivered in kindergarten through fourth grade classrooms by classroom teachers. Skills taught include learning to listen, focusing, following directions, empathy, identifying and coping with feelings, inviting others to play, being assertive and showing care and concern to name a few. Staff members reinforce these skills in the real life situations that inevitably arise. At the fifth grade level students participate in the DARE program, facilitated by Officer Scott Patrick, Pullman Police Department School Liaison Officer. This program is very complimentary to Second Step and is consistently reinforced by the classroom teachers. The steps we have taken so far have positively impacted the climate of Franklin Elementary and the physical and emotional safety of the students. This has been especially important as we have experienced growth from 330 to more than 450 students in the past 4 years. We are proactively addressing typical concerns such as bullying, cultural issues and relational skills as students move through the elementary developmental levels. We are continuing to work as a district and in individual schools to further refine our vision and related strategies in these areas. We are working to make the ‘hand-offs’ from school to school more effective so that expectations make sense as students move up through the grades. We are looking forward to our next steps!

Family Housing Program Brings People through Crises What steps can you take if you are close to eviction, lose a house, or have to leave home because you are threatened by a domestic partner? Community Action Center’s Family Housing Program works with residents as they face these types of crises.
Center owns nine transitional housing units on Davis Way. The Davis Way units are unique because they give people a chance to practice being part of a community before moving on to permanent Section 8 housing.
Family Housing Coordinator Jeff Tietjen listens to community members’ stories as they come to Community Action Center for help, then works with them to identify their support systems and develop a housing stability plan. He encourages clients to set concrete goals they can accomplish within a day.
Finally, Family Housing offers case management as residents get back on their feet. Staff connect people with resources such as mental health care, SNAP benefits, and job training. The goal is to give people the skills and resources they need to stay housed long term. Tietjen said he offers continuing case management after people transition into permanent housing, if residents want and need it. This extra support can help keep community members stable. He also invites people who have exited the program to come back and talk to him whenever they need to.
“Something my dad taught me is to look people in the eye and be a good listener,” Tietjen said. “I build trust and a relationship. I tell people to take one step at a time, and that a big step they’ve made is asking for help.” The Family Housing program provides different types of support depending on each individual situation. For some, help can be as easy as providing a bus ticket to family. Other times, Community Action Center places people in local hotels while they move toward short-term housing goals. Community Action
“I always offer a cup of coffee and the opportunity to vent when people are going through problems,” Tietjen said. “Hopefully, when people leave they are in a better frame of mind to deal with work, parenting, housing, or whatever they are dealing with.”

Meet the Staff: Jeff Tietjen, Family Housing Coordinator Describe what you do at Community Action Center. I deal 100% with crisis intervention and crisis housing. Anything that has to do with homelessness: people leaving the Department of Corrections, with disabilities, domestic abuse, and eviction. I switched from managing the food bank to housing a couple of years ago. It has been a challenge, but it has also been one of the most rewarding changes I’ve ever had. I assess client needs when they come to us in a crisis. Once we list the issues, I hook them up with resources: housing, transportation, mental health, or Alternatives to Violence. How long have you worked for Community Action Center? It will be 16 years this coming August. What’s the best part of your job? It’s constant, it gets pretty busy and chaotic here, but I love it. I tell people that it’s not a job, it’s an adventure. I like to joke around and keep things lighthearted, because if you don’t, man, hearing clients’ stories will get to you. As busy as it can get, the support from Barb [Mays, Family Development Manager] gives me the extra oomph to keep going. It’s an awesome agency. It would take a lot to get me to leave. What do you do in your free time? I love sports, anything competitive. I’ve always been really family oriented, and I am trying to hang out with family a lot while they are still close geographically. My wife and I have four grown kids. I love to go golfing with my boys. One daughter is living at home right now, and I like playing games with my wife and daughter. I have one grandson in Moses Lake. We haven’t been able to see them since Thanksgiving because of the weather. I’m looking forward to visiting them sometime after Valentine’s Day. What is your favorite book? Si-Cology and Si-ence Fiction from Duck Dynasty. I don’t like reading anything serious or watching serious movies. Like I said, I try to keep it light and laugh a lot.
Meet the Board: Katie Bittinger What is your day job? I’m a graduate student in the Department of Sociology at WSU. I’m defending my Ph.D. dissertation this semester, and teaching an Intro to Research Methods class. What’s your dissertation about? It’s on risk perceptions about the Hanford Nuclear Project in the Tri-Cities. How long have you served on the CAC board? Almost 2 ½ years. Why do you serve on the board? I want to give back to the community that has helped me become who I am today. I really like what Community Action Center does and I’m proud to be part of it. What do you do in your free time? I really enjoy cooking and baking. I also do a martial arts class with a couple of my colleagues. But mostly, I work on my dissertation…. and make cookies. What is your favorite book? All I Really Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, by Robert Fulghum. The book reminds me of why I do the work I do at the Mt. Baker Leadership Camp every summer with high school students. High Schoolers from all over Washington come to learn and grow in leadership. I love this quote from the book: “It doesn’t matter what you say you believe—it only matters what you do.” It really sums up why I am involved with the leadership camp and why I feel so honored to be a part of the CAC board.
