Premier’s worry VICTORIA — The $783 million price tag to bring sewage treatment to the Victoria area worries British Columbia Premier Christy Clark, she said in a TV interview this week. “Yes, I have had some concerns about it,” Clark told CHEK-TV News in an interview broadcast Monday. The B.C. government ordered treatment for the region in 2006 and officially signed on to provide a maximum of $248 million toward the project in July. But that money won’t be handed over until the project is completed in 2018. “Taxpayers deserve that kind of respect in what’s been a really tough economy,” Clark said. It’s unclear if Clark’s comments signal a shift away from the provincial government’s pledge. Victoria-area local governments are developing secondary sewage treatment to end the discharge of raw sewage into the Strait of Juan de Fuca from two outfalls. Peninsula Daily News
October 1, 1944 December 5, 2012 Harold James “Jim” Jacoby passed away suddenly December 5, 2012, from natural causes. He was born in Seattle, Washington, to Harold and Patricia (Murphy) Jacoby on October 1, 1944, and lived in the Wallingford District until marrying Mary Jane (Sennott) on June 10, 1967. Shortly after marrying, Jim attended and graduated from Huxley College at Western Washington University with a bachelor’s degree in environmental science. A lifetime interest in hunting, fishing and camping was further realized when he went to work for the University of Washington School of Forestry, running a research project on the Hoh River watershed shortly after graduation in 1975. Moving his family to Forks was a dream come true. Through economic ups and downs, the family stayed on in the West End, and Jim eventually went to work for the U.S. Forest Service as a fisheries biologist and forester,
Mr. Jacoby from which he retired in 2005. His interest in fishing and the environment and work experience led to his participation as a citizen and technical adviser to the North Pacific Coast Lead Entity for the Washington State Salmon Coalition for the past four years. An avid hunter and fisherman, Jim’s greatest joys were sharing with and teaching his grandchildren about the outdoors. Saltwater fishing with Mary (and until recently his mother) was another favorite pastime. Montana hunting trips with son Rick, grandson Jake and friends was another highlight of his life.
He also developed a keen interest in landscaping after retiring to their Bear Creek property and spent many hours in developing their retirement home and property. He was preceded in death by his father, Harold; mother Patricia; and sister Patricia Ann Stuart. He is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Mary; his son, Richard (Rick), and daughter-inlaw, Kathy; grandchildren Brooke and Jake of Forks; brother Daniel (Laura) Jacoby of Arlington, Washington; sisters Chris (Dennis) Jurus of Lynnwood, Washington, and Josephine (Macus) Minor; and numerous nephews, nieces and extended family in the Seattle area. A gathering of friends and families to celebrate Jim’s life will be scheduled this coming spring in one of the U.S. Forest Service campgrounds. Notice will be given at that time. The family requests that donations in Jim’s memory be made to the Quillayute Valley School District Scholarship Program in Forks. Arrangements were made by Drennan-Ford Funeral Home, Port Angeles.
