Spruce up Forks a huge success

Last Saturday over 60 volunteers from businesses, service groups, Scout troops, the Coast Guard and just people who cared showed up at First Federal for their “assignments” before heading out to the not terribly dirty, but needing some TLC, streets of Forks to spruce things up. After a safety briefing regarding volunteers wellbeing in case of finding needles, and everyone receiving a stylish orange mesh vest for safety, groups went their separate ways to clean, remove vegetation and eliminate garbage from unsightly areas in town. Volunteers picked up litter, washed windows on vacant buildings, pulled and weed whacked weeds on vacant lots and around buildings, scrubbed downtown flower boxes and planted some, swept sidewalks and removed

Volunteers gathered at the First Federal parking lot for donuts, safety vests and gloves before hitting the streets to spruce things up.

blackberry vines from several locations and hauled them away. All those that volunteered were entered in two chances to win a dinner for two at Kalaloch Lodge, winners of dinners for two were Randy McAvoy and Ravae O’Leary. First Federal, which helped fund a large dumpster, also donated a basket of goodies and Rachael Seelye was the winner of the basket. Spruce up Forks was truly a huge success that included volunteers from almost every entity in town.

Several patches of blackberry vines were removed by volunteers, here Randy McAvoy operates some machinery. Forum photos

If there is one thing that gives away an out of towner in Forks it is the use of an umbrella, although there are still a few locals that hang on to the poor things, spokes all sticking out. Not using one is sort of a badge of honor, no umbrella!, we get wet we dry out, and so, sadly we make fun of people who do use them. But on Saturday, April 19, from 10 a.m.-noon you can bring that unused umbrella to the Peninsula College extension site and get some good use out of it by decorating it. Or if you really don’t own one there will be umbrellas available plus decorations to make your very own rainy day creation. The event is open to youngsters of all ages and will culminate in an umbrella parade that will wind its way to the former Rainforest Arts Center lot. There is no fee to participate and who knows, you may create something you will want to use some rainy day? Well, until it gets blown inside out.


Good use of umbrellas — decorating them

Quilt to be raffled

The Piecemakers Quilt Club of Forks’ main goal is to educate and encourage people to start quilting. In order to accomplish this goal the group has one quilt raffle each year that coincides with the Fabric of the Forest Quilt Show and classes. The money raised covers the cost of the show and pays to hire teachers to come to Forks. The quilt club members who made this years quilt are Megan Bergstein (Port Townsend), Flo DeVoney (Port Angeles), Patty Holden (Carlsborg), Linda Holt (Sequim) and Joan Komendant (Sequim). The quilt was quilted by Esther Alward (Port Angeles). The quilt is 52 inches and was designed by Edyta Sitar. The quilt is on display at Chinook Pharmacy and tickets, $1 each, also are available at Chinook. The drawing for the quilt will be at 4 p.m. on April 27 at the Forks High School auxiliary gym. There also will be a drawing for a signed copy of the book “Dream Again” by Dennis McGregor, the events featured artist, which was donated Audrey Grafstrom. There is no purchase necessary to enter to win the book, those interested can enter at the club’s vendor table.

On a sunny day last week Jeff and Scott Baysinger of SJB Construction installed new safety netting on all three of the baseball fields at Duncan’s Fields. The new netting is courtesy of profits from the Tod Horton Memorial Co-ed Softball Tournament. There have been safety concerns for players and spectators and the new nets should help with those. In previous years proceeds from the tournament that bears Horton’s name have purchased aluminum bleachers for the fields. Scott Baysinger said, “Tod would really like this; he would be here helping us if he could.” Horton was a former West End Youth League president and coached many youth sports; he died on Oct. 19, 2010, from a timber felling accident. Even though he is gone the tournament continues to raise money that benefits projects that were important to him.

Quileute donate to landslide victims Last Friday as the community of LaPush prepared to welcome neighbors to the village for the annual “Welcome the Whales” ceremony they also made a very large announcement in the form of a generous donation. The Quileute Tribe donated $5,000 to the Oso Relief Fund to support the recent landslide victims. The tribe contacted Tina Davis at the Union Bank in Arlington to find out how and where to make the donation. Davis put them in touch

with the Cascade Valley Health Foundation who works in partnership with the bank to ensure all funds go to the victims. The following excerpts are from a letter included with the donation: The Quileute Tribal Council was deeply moved and saddened to hear about the tragedy at Oso and the oncoming challenges the community is facing. Please accept our donation and be aware that we are caring neighbors with a desire to help.

Shilo Hinchen and her nephew Blake were just two of many who completed the Hunter Safety class recently at the Sportsmans Club.

THE REAL FORKS Chief of Humor

by Christy Rasmussen Ford If you haven’t met the Chief of Police of Forks, you need to. He is hilarious! Well, you probably don’t want to meet him when you’re breaking the law, because I’m sure he isn’t very funny then. Most other times though, he is so full of jokes that I almost worry about my job security. I said almost. I was wondering the other day, what happens if the school zone starts flashing when I’ve already passed it but I don’t know? Do I get it a ticket? More importantly, will the police officer be bribable? Also, is bribable a word? Today it is! I emailed the chief immediately to ask, but only after pulling off to the side of the road because I do not use my phone and drive because that is against the law. He offered no black and white answer on whether a person would be in trouble. However, he did joke (I think he was joking) that he would have one officer flip the switch right after I passed, while the other would be waiting to pull me over. Between me and you, I’m going to start driving through town at 20 MPH from now on….just in case he isn’t as humorous as I think. It was during this email exchange that I realized that you all should be very thankful that I am not a police officer here. I joked about Officer Dom Scott and how much he loved using his badge, but I think I would be equally bad, if not worse….if that’s possible. I would totally flip that switch as soon as someone passed and then pull them over! I’m not even kidding here. I would have too much fun with my power. I could not handle it with grace. A few years ago, I was riding with a friend in Eastern Washington when a police officer pulled us over. He asked us one by one to step out and talk to him alone. I was wondering what the heck was in the trunk (too many movies I guess), when the police officer asked me what the smell coming from the car was. He claimed to smell a strong marijuana aroma. I laughed and almost joked that it must be the officer smoking it because no one was smoking any in our car….but then I realized this was probably one of those cases in which my “humor” might not work out in my favor. Magically the officer may have “found” weed in my pocket or something, which is silly because I would totally hide it in my sock. Anyway, I told the officer truthfully that we didn’t have any, we weren’t smoking any, and I had no idea what he was smelling. The officer then says, “Okay, the driver said the same thing. You two are free to go.” REALLY?! All that just to try and attempt to bust some random people by chance? What a jack-o-lantern! Excuse my language, but it was a jerk move on his part. A jerk move that I totally wish I could pull on someone by the way!!! You’re all VERY welcome I do this column instead of walking around with my badge in one hand and a donut in the other. I would have been Dom Scott on steroids….Metaphorically of course, but could you imagine old Dom on steroids? Funny thought. Letters to the editor policy

Forks family needs help For Forks resident Mike Blair the past week has been a blur. Mike’s wife Andrea thought she was suffering from a case of laryngitis only to find out that in fact she has an aggressive case of throat and lung cancer. Mike had been on crutches for months awaiting hip surgery which finally got scheduled and now that has been put on hold as the couple will leave next week for Andrea to begin treatment. In addition the Blairs also take care of their grandchildren, so Mike has concerns regarding working out those details as the treatment will be intense and will require that the couple stay


to the

in an apartment in Seattle. The Blairs have lived in Forks for about 16 years and spent 13 years working at Kalaloch Lodge. Mike said, “Over the years I have helped and donated to friends and family, never expecting to someday need help myself.” He added, “Many people may know my son ‘Fathead’ also named Mike who recently helped coach Forks High School’s Spartan wrestlers to second place at state.” Mike has no time to hold bake sales or a benefit, so an account for the couple has been set up at First Federal, he is hoping that his community will lend a hand just as he has in the past. Just the cost of the apartment is $4,000. Also, if any service groups have funds to help the Blairs, contact the Forks Forum, 374-3311.


Ancient forest speaks to us Hi. I am an ancient forest from the Olympic Peninsula. But I was here long before the forest you call ancient. I was here before that forest, and the one before that and the one before that … I was old long before homo sapiens ever walked on the Americas. In my great, green expanse

I harbored creatures you cannot imagine. No one knows just how old I am, but I’ve been buried for more than 100,000 years. Then I was exposed by wave action at the foot of a Kalaloch Beach in Olympic National Park. The wave action is breaking pieces from me and carrying me out across the beach. I’m just saying, if there’s anyone in whatever millennium who cares about climate

change …I have a lot to tell you. I may have a lot to say to someone who cares … before I wash out onto the beach with the driftwood that can only talk about what the weather was like yesterday. Specimens from the ancient forest and an exhibit will be on display at the Rainfest River and Ocean film festival at the Forks High School Commons at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 19.

Governor Inslee recognizes Backcountry Horsemen The governor of the great State of Washington, the Honorable Jay Inslee, was moved to proclaim Saturday March 15, 2014, as Back Country Horsemen Day. The Pacific Ranger District relies heavily on individual members and organized groups

get s ’ t e L ckin! cra

of Backcountry Horsemen. The Peninsula Chapter of the Backcountry Horsemen was instrumental in support for the development and support of the Mt. Muller trail system and later Littleton Horse Camp. Several dedicated volunteers have come from the Port Angeles – Sequim area. Steady locals include Z Barker and Sherry and Larry Baysinger. Larry Baysinger has been a local volunteer for over 15 years, particularly with the Mt. Muller, Littleton and now on the Bogachiel Rain Forest Trail and Trailhead. Larry and Sherry recently put on the Trail Training day at Snider Work Center that was highlighted in the Forks Forum (along with the help of Dale Sage from east end of Clallam County). Down south, the Grays Harbor Chapter of Backcountry Horsemen are an integral part of the southern part of the Pacific District. District Ranger Dean Millett appreciates the governor’s recognition, saying, “Our dedicated partners continue to help make a difference in the recreation opportunities we provide to the public. The Backcountry Horsemen have worked tirelessly for the benefit of all who use the National Forest System, including areas that are closed to stock use. If you use National Forest trails for recreation, there is a good chance a member of the Backcountry Horsemen have been involved in supporting the site or trail.” Flag Football Tournament Forks Police Officers first flag football tournament will take place on Saturday, April 26, at Tillicum Park.

Spartans Sputter BEAVER – The sputtering Spartans seem to be in serious need of a soul searching excursion to Mt. Olympus. Whether it is to simply cleanse their hearts and minds, or to seek good favor with the Thunderbird deity and plead for some thunder in their bats, some off trail, team amalgamating measures are surely past due. On Thursday, April 10, Forks baseball dropped a home doubleheader to the league leading Hoquiam Grizzlies by scores of 3-0 and 8-0. Both contests went the full seven innings, even as sunny afternoon skies turned into a bone chattering heavy marine layer. Javier Contreras went the distance for the Spartans in game one, taking the tough luck loss with him as his reward. The junior right hander gave up just two earned runs, scattering four strikeouts and just one walk in his crisp complete game effort. Contreras also led the sparse Spartan offense, going 2-3 in the game. Reis Lawson and Billy Palmer added one hit apiece.

“Javier gave us a great chance to win the ballgame holding them to three unearned runs,” said Spartan skipper Wayne Daman. “We failed to execute offensively when we were given the chances but you gotta tip your cap to their guy. He threw a great game and came up big when he needed to.” The left handed Sammy Lowder earned the complete game victory on the hill for Hoquiam. In game two, senior southpaw Nate “Seal Neck” Gimlin got the start on the bump for the Spartans, but managed just three innings of work, allowing three earned runs while walking one batter and striking out another, while taking the loss. Reis “Lawdog” Lawson stood tall for the Spartans at the top of their order, going 1-2 with a walk, while Contreras and Parker “Mouse Man” Browning added one hit apiece. Hoquiam’s 6’6” flame throwing righty, Kyle Standstipher, earned the victory for the Grizzlies, throwing five innings of shutout relief work. Forks

has now gone 19 innings, over three games, in between runs scored. Daman complimented the complete effort of his team’s opponent, saying, “We just flat got out hit. Hoquiam is a great team and there is a reason they are at the top. They have a good pitching staff and swing the bats pretty well.” He added, “I am happy with our defensive play yesterday but as a team we need to get better executing on the offensive end.” Reece Hagen again anchored the Forks defense, catching every inning that he didn’t

pitch, and once flattening a hefty Grizzly at home plate when he attempted to score from third base on a wild pitch that scooted not-far-enough away from the grizzled senior captain. Forks (2-5, 0-5 league) will hosted Rainier on April 15 at 4 p.m., for a league contest, and will travel to Montesano for a makeup doubleheader on April 17. *For frequent updates and scheduling information you can follow Forks baseball online on Twitter, @ForksBaseball.

Can Mick Dodge fame?

At an undisclosed location somewhere in the rain forest last week, Forks Chamber of Commerce director Lissy Andros, Chamber board member Don Grafstrom and an unnamed local newspaper editor met up with Mick Dodge and the National Geographic producers of “The Legend of Mick Dodge” show. The group revealed that Dodge has been signed to 20 more episodes. They also added that everyone at National Geographic wants to work on the show because of the beauty of the area. Love or hate the show, people are coming in to the visitors’ center and asking about Dodge. The Chamber of Commerce is hoping to stay on top of it all just in case, they have Twilight on their hands, which, is still a phenomenon that remains a mystery to many.

Missoula Players Present “Blackbeard The Pirate”

by Donna Barr

“ARRRRGH!” The pirate talk came fast and funny during “Blackbeard The Pirate,” a play performed by students of the Clallam Bay School in the school gymnasium, Friday, April 11. The play, presented by the Missoula Children’s Theater, featured nearly fifty students on and off stage, from all class ages. The MCT provided an array of wonderful costumes and character parts, including lovely mermaids, pretty parrots, cha-cha-ing piratetreasure-guarding crabs, feckless beach bums, spooky seaweed creatures and polite sailors, and a band of bearded pirates that would have done Robert Newton proud. Two squabbling crocodiles who learned to get along were just two examples of good lessons for children included in the script, along with finding a place in life, staying healthy with exercise, and sun safety - the latter just in time

to prevent summer sunburns. The children auditioned on Monday of the same week, and had only three and a half days to learn the songs, script and choreography. They performed with great gusto and humor, bringing continuing laughs and applause from the audience. Songs were based on such favorites as “The Song of the Outward Bound,” and included

the parrots’ squawking parody, “Yo ho, a Parrot’s Life For Me.” Other musical references included a fast Macarena by one of the pirates. The players thanked the local community and all the teachers for assistance and for the many homes that opened their doors for them to stay while in town. The Missoula players are celebrating their 40th year of bringing theater to schools in all the United States and in seventeen other countries, making them the largest touring group in the world. They are supported by a grant from the Montana Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts. The community is encouraged to ensure future performances by contacting Development Director Cate Sundeen. Please say how much you enjoyed the show, at

Tom Hughes had a really rough weekend as seen in this photo, as he and his wife Janet, who are super Seahawks fans attended the presentation of the Association of Washington Governors Washingtonian of the Year award to the Seattle Seahawks. Mike Flood accepted the award for the Seahawks. Janet said a lot of the players were in California at some training but added “All and all, with the Seagals, the Lombardi trophy, tour, and fabulous people, it was a great night.”

The Breakwater Restaurant remains closed after a fire destroyed the kitchen on the evening of April 6. Owner Barbara Hamilton hopes that repairs can be made and the long time eatery can reopen in about two months. It is thought that a grill left on high at closing time may have started the blaze. Hamilton joked that the news of the disaster was on Facebook almost before she was notified. A quick response from the volunteer fire department is credited with saving the building. All was quiet at the structure on Friday afternoon, but it is reported restoration crews and insurance adjusters have been on scene.

Are you ready for a Challenge? Spend just a few minutes with Ruby Swagerty and you will feel the need to exercise and eat better. It is obvious she practices what she preaches and she really cares about her clients at the Forks Athletic and Aquatic Club in Forks. Swagerty has implemented a program called “The Challenge” similar to the Biggest Loser program. Participants change their lives and maybe save their lives. But ultimately nothing speaks louder than the words of people who have lived the experience. Here are two testimonials: “My name is James Leinan and I would like to share my story and experience at the Forks Athletic and Aquatic Club. Our family joined the club just over six months ago. Shortly after joining the club I entered a clubsponsored weight loss competition. The club provided a cooking and nutrition class in which we learned a lot. I learned about the downfall of the American diet and how and what to eat to become more healthy. My family changed our diet completely and with a lot of hard work I actually won the first challenge. The owner Ruby, her staff, and the fellow members have all been

so helpful and motivational. Recently I finished my second challenge and earned second place. The big news though is that I have lost over 100 pounds in the past six months and have greatly improved my overall health. My wife Shantell has lost nearly 60 pounds so far and has been my biggest supporter. This has been a family effort and our son Mason has been very active at the club. Mason learned to swim at the club and attends tumbling classes. Having the Forks Athletic and Aquatic Club in our community is a huge asset. It is

Seattle Optometrist Helps LEGALLY BLIND to See!

Just because you have macular degeneration (or other vision-limiting conditions) doesn’t always mean you must give up driving or reading. A Seattle optometrist, Dr. Ross Cusic, is using miniaturized binoculars or telescopes to help people who have lost vision from macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy or other eye conditions. “Our job is to figure out everything and anything possible to keep a person functioning,” says Dr. Cusic. “Whether it’s driving, reading, TV, seeing faces, check writing, bingo or bridge. We work with whatever is on the person’s ‘wish list.’”

a family friendly environment and it has helped us change our lives. Come check out the FAAC and find your new path.” “Hello this is Josh Goakey. On Feb. 5 I almost lost my CDL and was told to lose 100 pounds in one year. My blood pressure was out of control and I was put on a third medication. On Feb. 20 I was told about the Challenge at the FAAC by a fellow co-worker and she said that I should do it. So I thought about it and decided to do The Challenge. The Challenge went for 40 days and in that time period I lost 59.8 pounds. I went from 405 pounds to 345.2 which is 14.76 percent of my starting body weight. I completely changed my diet and my life. I was drinking almost 3 gallons of Coke a day, eating what ever I wanted, mostly fast food like the hot case at the Shell and lots of greasy foods when eating out at restaurants. In The Challenge they teach you about eating correctly and proper exercise. The first two weeks I ate only raw fruit and vegetables, also started drinking 2 to 2.5 gallons of water a day. I now am trying to follow the paleo way of life. I have gone from three bloods pressure medications down to one. I have more self-confidence and feel way better. During the rest of The Challenge I continued fresh fruit and vegetables, plus I added very lean meat and ate lots of salads with homemade dressing. When I started I could only do an hour on the treadmill at a 2 percent incline and 2.5 miles per hour by the end I was up to 4.5 percent and 3.5 mph. During the challenge, my group hiked to Third Beach and found a wheel that was six feet across. We were able to life it into an upright position.” Are you ready for a Challenge? A new group starts on April 21. For more information, contact the Forks Athletic and Aquatic Club at 374-6100.

Dahlgren to present documentary in Forks John Dahlgren was born and raised in Forks, so it seems only natural that he would want to share his first project of his career with his home town. After Dahlgren graduated from Forks High School in 2000 he attended school in Bellingham, Eugene and Seattle and wrote a couple of screen plays. He eventually decided to make a documentary. The advice he got was to use a subject matter that was easily accessible, so he decided to do his film on his friend and FHS classmate Kasey Ulin and his wife Bracey as his subject matter. Dahlgren called Ulin and Ulin said “I�m in� and Dahlgren begin the journey to tell the story of Ulin’s career in the European Basketball league. Dahlgren had nothing as far as equipment so he used Kickstarter, a web-based tool that helps fund projects, the website describes the project as “A true love and basketball story, as an American married couple follows their dreams to Europe. The story “Extending the Play� is not about basketball. It is a unique story about redemption,


opportunity, passion, love, humility and the trials and tribulations that arise while chasing a dream. Kickstarter got Dahlgren the money he needed to purchase equipment and he started filming in September 2012. The project took Dahlgren to Luxembourg where he was the subject of a news program and a newspaper article which caught the interest of a local filmmaker there who assisted Dahlgren with his project. Dahlgren has overseen every aspect of the project from the background music to the color grading. Dahlgren said, “It is a feature length documentary, I plan on entering it in some American film festivals.� He hopes the exposure at the film festivals will open the door to directing other projects. Dahlgren is in South Carolina putting the finishing touches on his documentary. He plans a screening for family and friends in Forks at the FHS Auditorium at 7 p.m. Friday, April 25. Dahlgren is hoping to fill the auditorium, for questions or more information contact Dahlgren via e-mail at
