Supplement to The Omak-Okanogan Chronicle


Okanogan County PUD, the Columbia River and You Remember the song, “Roll On, Columbia, Roll On”? Well, when Woody Guthrie sang “your power is turning our darkness to dawn,” he was telling rural Northwest residents that the newly formed Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) and its Columbia River dams were there to make life a little bit brighter. BPA was responsible for building the Bonneville and Grand Coulee Dams on the Columbia and for selling and distributing power from the river’s federal hydroelectric system. Okanogan County Public Utility District (PUD) became a piece of that system, and since 1945, the PUD has provided electrical service throughout Okanogan County. As a Public Power utility, we are owned by the people we serve. Our customers elect three commissioners to set policy and rates for our utility. Our mission is to provide dependable, not-for-profit utility services governed by, and for the benefit of, our customers in a safe and environmentally manner. Today, we serve approximately 20,000 customers throughout Okanogan County. To sign up for electrical service, visit your convenient local PUD office listed below. Over the years the PUD has evolved from simply providing electrical power, to providing telecom services, to being a leading source of information on safety and energy conservation awareness. The PUD provides a multitude of community oriented programs including weatherization loans for both residential and commercial customers, energy audits, and renewables. For your energy conservation efforts we also offer rebates for insulation upgrades, commercial lighting retrofits, qualifying Energy Star appliances and manufactured homes. For further information concerning the many energy conservation programs and services provided by your local PUD, please contact the Energy Services Department at 509-422-8427 or 422-8428.

What does Public Health do? How does Public Health benefit me, my family and my community? Okanogan County Public Health works to:

Voted Best Business 2010 for North Okanogan Country!

■ Prevent disease and injury ■ Promote healthier choices ■ Protect food, water and air ■ Prepare for emergencies Public Health operates very much “behind the scenes”. We’re not as visible as law enforcement or fire fighting, but we’re just as vital to the safety and well being of the community. For example, Public Health monitors and responds to outbreaks of diseases to control their spread and to prevent further illness. Public Health inspects restaurants and other food establishments to ensure safe and proper food handling and to ensure the food you eat is safe. All public drinking water systems are monitored for quality by Public Health. Public Health distributes vaccines to medical providers that are used to immunize you and your family. Public Health enforces regulations to make sure septic systems operate properly and pose no threat to human health. This kind of work often goes unnoticed – unless it isn’t being done. Public Health is working everyday for a safer and healthier community.

Okanogan County profile From: Washington Employment Security Department Economic overview Okanogan County, which borders Canada on the north and on the south and east by the Columbia River Basin and Lake Roosevelt, and on the west by the North Cascade Mountains, is one of the largest counties at 5,268 square miles. The county was established in 1888, separated from Stevens County. A number of native tribes lived in this area before the first settlers, the earliest of whom were fur traders, followed by gold and silver miners. The Colville Confederated Tribes occupy much of Okanogan County as well as part of Ferry County. As of 2011, the Colville Confederated Tribes consists of 9,065 descendants of 12 aboriginal tribes. The county is rural, with only 7.7 persons per square mile. Its main

industries include apples, lumber, mineral mining and cattle ranching as well as tourism with many outdoor recreation activities. With more than 300 days of sunshine a year and 3 million acres of public land, tourism is a major industry. The county has a variety of recreation activities, including hiking, skiing, rock climbing, camping, horseback riding and various lake activities. Access to the Cascade Mountains and North Cascades National Park also contributes to tourism in the area. With such diverse lands in Okanogan County, there are various species of wildlife, making the area popular for bird and wildlife watching. Okanogan hosts various rodeos during the spring and summer, along with a wine festival in the summer and a salmon festival in the fall. Another major attraction is the Grand Coulee Dam, which is one of the largest concrete structures in the world and the largest electric power-producing facility in the nation. Agriculture, particularly tree fruits, is another important sector in


PAGE 40 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; INFO BOOK 2012

County statistics Okanogan County. In addition to the sales of agricultural products, tourists are drawn to breweries, wineries and the fruit stands to sample local wares. Outlook Okanogan County has remained relatively flat in nonfarm employment the last 10 years. Population outmigration of the younger population has been the main contributing factor in the stagnant labor market. Much like other North Central counties, Okanogan has a larger percent of the population 55 and older. Some have stayed in the area and others move back for retirement, contributing to a growing older demographic. This group has boosted the retail trade sector. They have also contributed to a growing health care industry, which will continue to see growth in the future. Other areas of the labor market, outside of retail trade and health care, have seen little growth. At the end of 2010, year-over-year growth was starting to show both in the goods-producing and service-providing

sectors. Specifically, manufacturing has started turning around throughout the state and Okanogan County is following right behind. In the service-providing sector, retail trade was showing strong growth and had posted multiple months of year-over-year gains. This sector looks to be the strongest and most robust area of growth at the current time. Industry detail Okanogan Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total non-farm employment has fluctuated at times, but has remained relatively flat since 1995. Total nonfarm employment in 1995 was 12,540, and in 2010 it was approximately 12,000. Times of growth and contraction have occurred inbetween this timeframe, but the overall labor market has been level. Okanogan County had a very large proportion of total non-farm in government at 41 percent in 2010, which is down from 46 percent in 2001. Some contraction has occurred in this sector, but it still was more than double the share of Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employment

as a whole. The goods-producing sector was losing employment in the early 2000s, but it started picking up in 2006. The natural resources, mining and construction sector has remained flat the last 10 years. In 2000, there were 760 employed in this sector, and 780 employed in 2010. Manufacturing dropped by 60 percent from 1999 to 2000. Since 2007, manufacturing has leveled off, employing an average of 360 in 2010. The service-providing sector is the largest sector in Okanogan County, and is currently below 2000 employment levels. The trade, transportation and utilities sector has remained steady the last five years, but is below 2000 employment levels. In the mid to late 1990s, this sector started gaining in employment, reaching an initial peak in 2000, and then hitting its highest peak in 2005. Okanogan County has a large agricultural sector, and trade and transportation is where agricultural employment bleeds over into non-farm

Always the best prices on:

employment. Wholesale trade has been on a fairly continuous slide, slipping from 640 in 1990 to 220 in 2010. Retail trade has been the shining sector in terms of growth the last few years. The growth has been modest over 20 years, but the last four years have really started to pick up with 11 percent growth from 2006 to 2010. Government employment peaked in 2005, and has been declining slightly each year into 2010. 2001 brought 21 percent growth in this sector, but leveled off quickly in 2002. Population Okanogan County had an estimated population of 40,900 in 2010. Omak is the largest incorporated area in the county with an approximate population of 4,780 in 2010. Growth has slowed during the past decade as can be seen by the annual growth rate of 0.3 percent compared to the 1.0 percent growth rate over the last 20 years.

County statistics Profile from Page 40 Growth over the last 20 years in the county appears to be more sensitive to economic conditions than the state or the nation as a whole. Okanogan experienced more negative growth during hard economic times and higher growth rates during economically prosperous times than the nation or the state. Age, gender and ethnicity As of 2010, Okanogan County has both a younger and older population than the state and the nation. The county has a greater proportion of females than the state, and almost one out of five residents are of Hispanic origin and more than one out of 10 are American Indian, much greater that the state or the nation. • 26.8 percent of the population was under 20, compared to Washington state’s 26.4 percent and the nation’s 27.3 percent. The large proportion Hispanic residents contributes toward this pattern.

• 22.5 percent of the population is 60 and older compared to Washington state’s 17.4 percent. The baby boomer population will be increasing throughout the U.S., but at the local level it is already large. This pattern may reflect some in-migration of an older population who grew up in Okanogan County, moved away, and then moved back to retire as well as those who aged in place. More than half the Okanogan County population (54.4 percent) in 2009 reported being in the same house in 1995 and 2000 compared to 48.6 percent in the state. • Okanogan County was made up of 50.3 percent females and 49.7 percent males in 2010. The state by comparison has an equal population split by gender. With an older population, this pattern is not surprising. • In 2010, 66.4 percent of the population in Okanogan County was white, non-Hispanic, 11.5 percent was American Indian and Alaska Native, and 19.2 percent was of Hispanic origin.

The presence of the Colville Confederated Tribes and the inmigration of Hispanics make Okanogan much more diverse than the state or the nation. Educational attainment Okanogan County is below national norms for education levels. • 17.5 percent of adults 25 years and up have a bachelor’s degree or higher, compared to the state’s 30.8 percent and the nation’s 27.5 percent. • 33.1 percent of adults 25 years and up have a high school diploma or GED compared to the state’s 24.6 percent. Labor force and unemployment The civilian labor force was approximately 22,230 in 2010, which is 0.2 percent higher than 2009 and 8.3 percent higher than 2000. Although the last 10 years have seen growth, since 1995 the civilian labor force has actually dropped by 3 percent. Okanogan County traditionally has a higher average unemployment rate than both Washington state and the

nation. In 2010, the annual average unemployment rate was 9.9 percent compared to the state’s 9.2 percent and the nation’s 9.6 percent. In 2000, the annual average unemployment rate was 8.2 percent compared to the state’s 5.0 percent and the nation’s 4.0 percent. Industry employment by age and gender The Local Employment Dynamics database is a joint project of state employment departments and the Census Bureau. It matches state employment data with federal administrative data. Among the products is industry employment by age and sex. The data is based upon all workers who are covered by state unemployment insurance programs. Federal workers and non-covered workers, such as the self-employed, are not included. Data is presented by place of work, not place of residence. Some highlights:

Per capita income in Okanogan County was $32,084 in 2008, which is 73 percent of Washington state’s per capita income and 80 percent of the nation’s. Per capita income has seen relatively steady growth the last 10 years, and was ranked the 33rd county in 1998 and the 22nd county in 2008 in Washington state. In 2008, earned income consisted of approximately 60 percent of income, investment was 16 percent and transfer payments were 24 percent. Government transfer payments have seen minimal growth since 1970, but have remained steady since 1990. Almost 10 percent of earned income came from cross-county commuters in 2008. Median household income, according to the American Community Survey of 2009, was $48,159 in Okanogan County and $68,457 in Washington state. The poverty rate in Okanogan County (19.6 percent) was above both the state (12.3 percent) and the nation (14.3 percent) in 2009.

Ferry County profile From: Washington Employment Security Department Economic overview Ferry County is unique in terms of population density, transportation, industries and infrastructure. It is very rural and is similar to a frontier economy in terms of its limited transportation and dependence on resource extraction. These realities greatly affect job growth and job creation. Economies with a reliance on agriculture or resource extraction tend to experience higher than average unemployment rates. This is true for Ferry County as well. Over the last 20 years, the economy has not changed much in terms of total employment, but a diversification of industries has occurred. The largest trend has been for a decline of private employment and growth of government employment, with most of this coming from local government. The other long-term trend has been for declining goods-producing jobs and increasing service-providing jobs. This trend has occurred in Ferry County since 1990. During recessions, Ferry County tends to come to the party early and leave the party late. In other words,

recessionary conditions occur early and last for longer. This pattern has certainly occurred during this current recession, however, not to the degree it has in neighboring counties like Stevens and Pend Oreille. With the opening up of the Buckhorn Mountain Mine in Okanogan County, economic activities have noticeably appreciated. Less than 18.0 percent of the land in Ferry County is privately owned. Government and the Confederated Colville Tribes own the majority of land, limiting growth from spreading beyond established population areas. It also means that the county is particularly impacted by federal policy changes, especially in regard to timber land management and mining. Ferry County tends to have one of the highest unemployment rates and lowest labor force participation rates of any county in Washington. Females make up a larger percentage of the workforce than males. Outlook Ferry County is expected to grow slightly slower than the state through 2017, at 0.9 percent compared to 1.0 percent. This projection is for the Eastern Washington counties of Ferry, Stevens, Pend Oreille, Lincoln, Whitman, Asotin, Garfield, Columbia and Walla Walla. Going forward into 2011, the projected budget constraints for local governments will impact employment growth and possibly total employment, as government revenues in 2010 are less than they were in 2007. Mining is projected to be weak in

businesses to open in support of the mining industry and as service businesses. Retail sales have grown in every quarter compared to the previous year since the mine opened, which is something that has not occurred across the state. While a small component of total jobs, the construction sector in Ferry County has continued to remain positive. The weak housing sector will continue to impact wood product manufacturing employment as new housing starts continue to be impacted by the recession and housing bubble. Local firms reduced employment in this sector in 2008-2009. Future hiring will be dependent on new housing starts increasing, but this will take several years to occur. Small amounts of hiring occurred during the most recent quarters, but in no way has this amount replaced the total decline in employment for this important sector. State and local government employment will be under pressure as

terms of growth, however, with near record prices for gold and world-wide demand for it, it is likely that mining will continue to add jobs over the next several years. The recent trend of increased retail sales will be positive in terms of local retail businesses and should increase jobs. This is a welcome trend as this sector has been very soft over the last 20 years. Total nonfarm jobs averaged 1,670 in 2009. Since 1990, non-farm employment has declined an average 0.5 percent every year. This figure compares to a positive growth of 1.5 percent for the state and 0.9 percent for the U.S. since 1990. This decline in employment means that in 2009, there were fewer jobs then there were in most years since 1990. While the Buckhorn Mountain Mine is in neighboring Okanogan County, much of the processing and transportation occurs in Ferry County. This development has caused other

Industry detail Ferry County had 1,670 non-farm jobs in 2009. In 2009, total employment declined by 2.9 percent. In 2008, total employment grew 0.6 percent and 2.4 percent in 2007. Ferry averaged job growth of minus 0.5 percent between 1991 and 2009 while the nation averaged job growth of 0.9 percent during that time and the state averaged job growth of 1.5 percent Natural resources, mining and construction jobs declined around 20 percent before 2000 to 12.6 percent in 2009. During this time, construction employment increased and forestry employment and mining employment

declined. Forestry-related employment has continued to be weak during this recession. Nationally, housing markets continue to be weak, but recent manufacturing activities for wood have picked up. This in no way makes up for the decline in activity, but simply indicates that things are improving instead of declining. Over the last 30 years, and at a much faster rate over the last 10 years, there has been a decline in manufacturing employment in the U.S. This trend has occurred in Ferry County as well. Manufacturing employment has declined from 18 percent in 1990 to 13 percent in 2008. Since 2000, manufacturing employment has bounced up and down. From the beginning of the recession, manufacturing jobs and construction jobs have had the biggest sources of decline. Trade, transportation and utilities continued to be about 10 percent of

Strong local retail sales should help sustain local business and increase profitability, which should help increase the per capita retail spending, which in 2009 was a very low $2,300.

County statistics Profile from Page 46 total employment. No real changes have occurred over time. It should be noted that truck driving employment under-represents the number of people working as truck drivers. The majority of truck drivers are not employees, but sole proprietors. These self-employed individuals are not counted in this sector. Health care and social assistance for Ferry County gets counted as government employment as the local hospital is run by the county. Total employment in that sector has increased more for this sector than any other sector. This sector is expected to add jobs, especially as the local population gets older, and more retired people move into the region. For this sector, the average monthly wage in 2008 was $ $2,256. Government employment has grown compared to negative growth for total employment for the county as a whole. Government employment is elevated due to the local hospital being owned by the county and being included as governmental employment. Another source of this growth is tribal government. The Colville Confederted Tribes are headquartered in Nespelem, which is in Okanogan County; however they do have a healthy presence in Ferry County. Government employment was 57 percent of total employment in 2008. Population According to the Washington State Office of Financial Management, the population for Ferry County as of April 2009 was 7,800. During the last 30 years, the

population grew at 1.1 percent, but has slowed during the last 10 years to 0.8 percent, which is slower than growth rates for the nation (1.0 percent) and the state (1.4 percent), but on par with other rural areas in the nation. Ferry County experienced a large in-migration in the 1970s, then slower growth in the 1990s and low growth since 2000. The population for Ferry County is projected to be 10,250 in 2030, growing at 1.5 percent per year over the next 10 years. Age, gender and ethnicity A higher percentage (21.4 percent) of the county’s population was over the age of 60 than was typical in other areas of the state. This group was 17.4 percent in the state and 16.9 percent in the nation This age group has grown at a faster rate than the general population. Females made up 48.4 percent of the population and males 51.7 percent in 2009. White, non-Hispanics made up 74.7 percent of the population. American Indians/Native Alaskan made up 18.4 percent of population compared to 1.5 percent for the state and 0.7 percent for the nation. Educational attainment As a percent of the total population 25 years and older, 82.7 percent had graduated from high school in the county, compared to 87.1 percent in the state according to 2008 estimates by the U.S. Census. Those with a college degree or higher made up 13.5 percent of the county’s population, compared to 27.7 percent of the state.

Labor force and unemployment The civilian labor force was 3,030 in November 2010, down from a year ago when it stood at 3,020. Unemployed residents created an upward pressure on the labor force as they increased by 5.4 percent over the same period. Resident employment also decreased by 1.1 percent. The unemployment rate for Ferry County increased to 12.7 percent in November 2010, compared to the previous year’s 12.1 percent. The increase in the unemployment rate is the result of a decrease in resident employment and a slight increase in the number of unemployed residents.

There were substantial differences between industries. Male-dominated industries included construction (89.8 percent); and transportation and warehousing (81.8 percent); agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting (92.1 percent); and mining (90.4 percent). Female-dominated industries included health care and social assistance (78.0 percent) and educational services (61.8 percent). Wages and income Ferry County averaged 1,705 jobs covered by unemployment insurance in 2008 with a total payroll of $53.2 million. The county’s average annual wage was $31,176, well below the state average wage of $46,559 and below the state less King County’s annual average wage of $38,756. Of the 39 counties in Washington, Ferry ranked 27th in average annual wages among all counties. Average wages in the county, which were close to national and state wages in the 1990s, were significantly lower in 2006 at $31,176. Average annual wages were highest for construction at $41,059, followed by government at $35,260 and the agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting sector at $34,224. The lowest average annual wages were found in retail trade at $20,146, real estate, rental and leasing at $11,252, and accommodation and food services at $9,659. The 2008 median hourly wage for Ferry County was $15.93. This ranked the county 25rd among all counties in the state. In comparison, the state’s median wage was $20.11 and the state minus King County was $17.91.

Industry employment by age and gender The Local Employment Dynamics database, a joint project of state employment departments and the Census Bureau, matches state employment data with federal administrative data. Among the products is industry employment by age and sex. All workers covered by state unemployment insurance data are included; federal workers and noncovered workers like the self-employed are not. Data is presented by place of work, not place of residence. Some highlights: In the second quarter of 2009, 1,647 jobs were located in Ferry County. More than 35 percent of educational workers are over the age of 55. In the 2008, men held 45.2 percent of the jobs in Ferry County and women held 54.8 percent. For the state, it was 50.7 percent male and 49.3 percent female.

County statistics When adjusted for inflation, there has no real gain in wages since 1990 when the average wage was $18.80, and it is lower than it was in 2003 at $15.88 when adjusted for inflation. The decline in wages over the last 20 years across all wage levels not impacted by minimum wage has been very pronounced. Income and poverty In 2007, Ferry County residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; personal income totaled $158.0 million. Per capita income (adjusted for inflation) rose 6.2 percent from 2006 to 2007. Per capita income in Ferry County was 58.8 percent of the nation and 55.1 percent of the state. Earnings from wages made up 52 percent of total personal income. Transfer payments made up 33 percent and investment incomes made up 15 percent of the income in the county, which is a much larger percent of income than is typical. The net commuter earnings were 14.0 percent of total earned income in 2007.
