THE FACTS On June 19, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed an executive order setting aside much of present-day Port Angeles as a government reserve. This land, stretching east from the base of Ediz Hook to Ennis Creek and one mile inland from the coast, was to be used for lighthouse, military and government purposes. On March 3, 1863, an act of Congress set aside a portion of that reserve as a townsite to be divided into homesites and sold to raise money to offset the debt of the Civil War, thus creating the Second National City. THE FICTION It has been said that if the South conquered Washington, D.C., in the Civil War, the government would be moved to Port Angeles. The transcontinental railroad was not completed until 1869, and it went to California, not Washington Territory. It was not until 1883 that the Northern Pacific Railway connected the Washington Territory to the East. During the Civil War, Port Angeles, located in the far northwestern corner of the country, could not have been an alternative capital city. Nevertheless, Port Angeles was designated as the Second National City by an act of Congress. When kept in the proper perspective, this designation can and should be used with pride. There will never be another Second National City. — Historical information provided by Kathy Monds, executive director of the Clallam County Historical Society.

Keep your tax dollars at work in Port Angeles Main Street Program allows business owners to direct where their tax money will be spent written by BARB FREDERICK

We don’t often get the opportunity to direct where our tax dollars are spent. But if you own a business that pays Washington State Business & Occupation Tax — you can. When you pay B&O or Public Utility Tax (PUT) you can also make a contribution to the Port Angeles Downtown Association and deduct 75 percent of the contribution on your B&O taxes the following year. The Port Angeles Downtown Association is a member of the Washington State Main Street Program and nationally recognized as one of only 13 top-tier downtown revitalization associations in the state. Because of that, PADA is able to receive funds through the Washington State Main Street Tax Credit Incentive Program. Here’s a simple example of how the Main Street tax incentive works: If your business contributes $10,000 to our local PADA Main Street program this year, you will receive a $7,500 B&O tax credit to be used next year. You can contribute any part up to the full amount of your annual B&O tax obligation with a single

payment or incremental payments throughout the calendar year. By redirecting your B&O taxes to the PADA Main Street Program, you invest directly in the health and vitality of our downtown. Your tax dollars are put to work here in your own front yard adding to the quality of life for your employees and for other businesses to locate here as well. PADA is the only organization in Clallam County that can utilize the Main Street Tax Credit Incentive Program. We encourage you to consider investing a portion of your B&O taxes in your downtown.

How the money is used

Through Main Street tax incentive contributions, PADA will be able to continue to offer important services such as: • Community events highlighting the uniqueness and vibrancy of our downtown. • Work to protect the historic nature of downtown Port Angeles. • Coordinate the various ongoing projects including Art On The Town, Downtown Dollars, Streetscape Improvements, Downtown Parking and many more. B&O tax funds will be used this year, among other projects, to enhance lighting at the Conrad Dyar Memorial Fountain at First & Laurel Streets, and could be used in the future to purchase Fri, Sept 14, 6:30 pm to 8 pm. new street banners and Experience the rich history and activities of our deep-water harbor and share the fun of Christmas decorations period-costumed visitors!

CLOCK TOURS

Living history

<< In preparation for the upcoming Heritage Days celebration, members of the Port Angeles Downtown Association’s Youth Volunteer Program attended a Civil War Living History encampment in Chehalis. Here a recruiter from the 20th Maine Regiment talks with Josh Burdine, left, of Port Angeles. While at the encampment youth volunteers got a feel for the era in which Port Angeles’ founding took place.

HERITAGE DAYS COURTHOUSE CLOCK TOURS The clock in the tower of the 1914 Clallam County Courthouse was made in 1880 by the E. Howard Tower Clock Co. of Boston, Mass. In 1885, the clock and its bell were shipped around the Horn to Seattle, where they sat on the dock unclaimed by the purchaser. In 1914, an architect for the Clallam County courthouse obtained the Photo of the inner workings of clock for use in the Port the Clallam County Courthouse Angeles building. clock by Dan Kauffman. In 1915, local agents for the Seattle firm of Joseph Mayer & Brothers, installed the clock in the new courthouse at a cost of $5,115. The clock is located in the courthouse tower behind four ivory-colored, frosted glass faces. Each dial measures 100 inches in diameter and is electrically lighted for night viewing. The numerals are 15 inches tall, the minute hand is 46½ inches long and the hour hand is 31½ inches long. The 16-foot by 16-foot tower rises 82½ feet above Lincoln Street. A dome above the clock is supported by eight columns and features other terra cotta ornamentation. Inside the dome is a 4-foot-tall, 2,000-pound bell that strikes each half-hour and counts the hours. Originally, the clock storage batteries powered the clock, but now electric motors suspended on chains automatically wind it. A cable from the striking mechanism passes upward about 18 feet and is attached to the clapper, which strikes the bell. At the courthouse dedication ceremony June 14, 1915, the clock read 2:25 p.m. At the cornerstone laying ceremony for the new courthouse August 23, 1980, the clock read 11 a.m.; its tolling interrupted the ceremony, which had started a few seconds early. Early photographs of the old courthouse show a flag flying from the top of the dome. Now, the flagpole is located on the front south terraced lawn, and a terra cotta pinnacle tops the dome. To get a look at the interior of the clock and hear historical information about the courthouse, go on one of the courthouse clock tours that meets at the front Lincoln Street entrance of the building at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, and Sunday, Sept. 16. The tours are offered by donation.

ne of the Port Angeles Downtown Association’s big success stories is the Youth Volunteer Program that began in June 2011 at the suggestion of the state Main Street coordinator. The Washington State Main Street Program has been helping communities revitalize the economy, appearance and image of their downtown commercial districts since 1984. Using local resources and initiatives, the state program helps communities develop their own strategies for long-term growth. The youth program was seen as a one way PADA’s organization committee could stimulate pride in the heart of the downtown community. The youth volunteers earned more than $200 from last year’s Heritage Days Kids’ Carnival, and they have plans for an even bigger and better carnival this year to celebrate Port Angeles’ 150th birthday. Plans include a dozen carnival-style games and a mercantile where they will sell old-fashioned toys, cold drinks and snacks. All proceeds go to help fund the other volunteer activities. The Kids’ Carnival is their big event — they researched old-fashioned carnivals, made all the games and signs and will run the carnival themselves during Heritage Days. Other vendors will provide free activities for children, too. The Home Depot employees will be on hand helping kids make birdhouses and boats. The PADA Youth Volunteer Program is open to all kids ages 10 to 18. Grace Kauffman of Sterling Impressions Photographic acts as coordinator. The group meets every week for about an hour and a half, generally to plan its involvement in the next downtown function. Volunteers keep busy year-round and are a welcome presence at many downtown events. To date, the youth volunteers have walked in two Fourth of July parades, planned and ran the first Heritage Days Kids’ Carnival in 2011, staffed information tables for the Celebrate Elwha event, helped with the PADA booth and trolley for the Dungeness Crab and Seafood Festival, passed out Halloween candy, were elves for Santa at the annual holiday tree lighting at Conrad Dyar Memorial Fountain, wrapped gifts during downtown’s Shop Till You Drop, made buttons and stuffed bags for “Choose Local” and assembled Art on the Town brochures. “The kids come with boundless enthusiasm and have generally been willing to do whatever we need,” Grace says. Business owners and other adult volunteers work alongside the kids who are trained for various tasks and even help keep the downtown clean by picking up trash. Youth volunteers sign in and out, racking up volunteer hours for each task. They’ve helped decorate the “Our Little Town” tree for the Olympic Medical Center Foundation’s Festival of Trees and produced the All-Dressed-Up Spring Tea for girls and their dolls. The group recently received recognition at a Port Angeles City Council meeting for its good work. Youth also have educational opportunities — they listened to a speaker from Olympic National Park give a detailed talk regarding the Elwha dam removal project, and they’ve gone on tours of the downtown’s historic underground, the Museum at the Carnegie and the Feiro Marine Life Center. Not only do volunteers learn real-life job skills — like being on time, working as a group, planning and implementing an idea, budgeting, meeting people and answering questions — they also have the opportunity to accumulate volunteer hours and receive references from business owners when they go job hunting. Volunteer hours are extremely helpful in getting scholarships for college, Grace says, plus the kids have fun, make new friends and participate in supervised activities — with snacks. For more information on the youth program, email Grace at padayouth@gmail.com or phone her at 360-417-3001.

ABNEY PARK

Sept. 15, 2012

PORT ANGELES STEAM BALL Abney Park, arguably the most well-known steampunk band in the country, will again perform during Port Angeles’ Heritage Days weekend celebration. Steam Ball is a no-alcohol event open to everyone — last year’s Steam Ball had event-goers ranging in age from toddlers to grandparents. Abney Park performs year-round to sold-out crowds around the country and internationally. The band celebrates all things air pirate, swashbuckling, Victorian steam industrial, post-apocalyptic and Middle Eastern percussion with violin, keyboards and haunting vocals. Check out the band online at www. abneypark.com. “Steampunk began as a mix of literary genres including speculative fiction, alternate history and science fiction taking place in an era where steam power is still widely used,” says Drew Schwab, owner of Anime Kat and the Port Angeles Downtown Association’s promotions chairperson. “Steampunk works feature technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them.” Steam Ball will be held at the Masonic Lodge, 622 S. Lincoln St. in Port Angeles, on Sept. 15. Tickets are $20 in advance and $30 at the door if there are any left. The event starts at 9 p.m. with the doors opening at 7 p.m. Costumes are optional but highly encouraged. Expect to find dancing, outrageous outfits and tons of imagination at play.

Tickets are available in Port Angeles at: • Anime Kat, 110 W. First St. • Odyssey Bookshop, 114 W. Front St. • Twisted Mischief, 108 E. First St. or online at NWPerformingArts.com
