Rainfest lived up to its name
Usually when you name something Rainfest it does not rain, but this year it was really a wet one. The umbrella decorating event had about 20 decorators according to organizer Carl Chastain, way down from last year. Chastain said it was probably due to the weather. The umbrellas were made of paper so after decorations were applied each one got a coat of water proofing. As the children and umbrellas left the Peninsula College extension site each decorator got a shovel, too. The umbrella parade went around the block and ended up at the future site of the Rainforest Arts Center where city officials and several invited guests were waiting for the groundbreaking event for
the RAC. Gold shovels in hand, each took a shovel full of gravel, although some people, Lissy Andros, took a pretty small scoop, she later claimed her shovel was defective. The oldest groundbreaker was Dorothy Burr. The umbrella decorators also took their plastic shovels and did a little groundbreaking of their own. Mayor Bryon Monohon said a few words as the rain let up a bit and the sun came out for just a few seconds, inviting everyone back this same time next year for the grand opening of the new Rainforest Arts Center.

Students from Professor Rob Corser’s UW School of Architecture spent Friday afternoon looking at the Habitat for Humanity site in Forks. They also met the families that have been chosen for new homes. The students will help design a home and the space around the homes. On Saturday they took time to do a little groundbreaking at the site of the future Rainforest Arts Center. Corser’s students also will work on some of the ideas for the interior design of the RAC.

Forks Elementary School will be hosting the second, in a series of Parent Information Nights from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, April 24. The evening will begin with dessert and music performances from the third- and fifth-grade classes. The topic for the evening is the new Smarter Balanced State Assessment and new Common Core State standards. Both of these additions are a result of President Obama’s “Race to the Top” program and most likely will impact students for the next 10 years, including graduation. Forks Elementary school principal, Rob Shadle, invites all of the community to come and learn about the influence this test and these standards will have on their children’s future.

Dogs and inmates get a second chance Forks High School senior Reis Lawson’s senior project is raising awareness about the Olympic Corrections Center’s Dog Program. Lawson recently brought Buddy, one of the dogs in the program, to a Forks Chamber of Commerce meeting. He explained how the program not only helps the dogs learn basic obedience, which will make their chances of adoption more likely, but also how the program has an effect on those incarcerated. Inmates learn responsibility and respect and learn to care for something other than themselves sometimes for the first time in their lives. Dogs selected for the program have had problems of their own, sometimes adopted and then returned for their bad behavior. The goal in training the dogs is to be around large groups of people and to be calm. The OCC dog program is changing the lives of inmates and dogs and is maintained on very little resources. Lawson is hoping raising awareness will help with donation for the program, anything from dog treats to other citizens going out to OCC and donating their time. To find out how to adopt an

Easter Bunny photo op After the Easter bunny made his rounds last Sunday he showed up at the Elks Lodge during the Concerned Citizens Easter Breakfast. Fans dressed in their finest Easter attire hopped up for photos with the bunny, who had apparently dried out after a really wet Easter egg hunt the day before. The photos were a fundraiser for West End Business and Professional Association with Jordan Burt donating her time at the camera. About 40 photos were taken of the bunny and kids of all ages.

It’s Tourist Season!
By Christy Rasmussen-Ford Brace yourselves fellow Forksonians, it’s almost full-blown tourism season! I believe we have officially survived the Twilight Apocalypse, but let’s not forget the average tourists. The ones who come here for other things … like to just park in the middle of the highway like it’s a parking lot. I’m not speaking hypothetically. This really did happen. I know what you’re all thinking, “She finally ran out of things to talk about and is making stuff up.” While I do often make things up, this one is 100 percent true. I was headed to work last week when I came around a corner and had to slam on my brakes to avoid hitting a Prius (of course it would be a Prius). They were apparently under the impression that we just park in the road here. A man was out of the car taking a picture of what appeared to me as just trees (and not even big ones), but was important enough to him that he parked on the highway to take it. A lady was walking a tiny dog. It may have actually been a rat. I can never tell the difference. Recapping this scene for anyone who fell asleep; car parked completely on the highway, all parties outside vehicle leisurely acting as if they were parked in a perfectly fine parking spot, no emergency lights activated and me wondering, “WHERE IS IT OKAY TO DO THIS??????????” Are these people trying to get a tour of Forks Community Hospital to see if Dr. Cullen is there? Or maybe they are trying to get thrown in jail to ask the police officers why they aren’t doing anything about the dog situation? Possibly they were hoping that Mick Dodge would come out of the woods to meet them? I have no idea. I really cannot fathom parking in the middle of the highway for any reason. I’m not trying to be a jerk here, I generally appreciate tourists and the money they donate to the area. I’m grateful for their support. I also enjoy meeting new people as I have known most of you since kindergarten and frankly, you get kind of boring sometimes. (I kid, I kid!) However, I am not grateful for the raised blood pressure from coming around a corner to find a car PARKED in the lane I’m going 55 MPH in. Especially since I was heading to work where I have to be nice all day long to said tourists. Maybe The Visitor’s Center could offer a free “Driving in Forks for Dummies” handbook to those who stop by? Just a thought. I could even write it if need be. CHAPTER ONE- LOGGING TRUCKS; they don’t break for anything, especially Prius-type cars. They will hit you and your little dog too … or rat, whatever it was. Christy Rasmussen-Ford can be reached either by parking on the highway in front of her car or by e-mailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get your Groove on Forks Grads The 1970 Forks High School annual was the last one to have a memorial page honoring a Forks boy killed in Vietnam. As the seventies got under way the war continued on and was served up to us at our nightly dinner table with mashed potatoes and the evening news. For those of us attending FHS the war was a world away from our safe little high school. On the national scene we had Nixon going to China, the Paris Peace Accords bringing an end to the Vietnam War with 58,000 American casualties, gas shortages, Watergate and Nixon’s resignation and pardon, President Carter’s Camp David Accords and attempts to bring peace to the Middle East, the Iranian revolution the decade ending with the Soviets in Afghanistan and an energy crisis. In the halls of Forks High these national and international events went on each week in our “Time” magazine but didn’t really have much affect on our daily routine of getting
to class, eating lunch at the Pay and Save Coffee Shop. 1970s fashions began with a continuation of the mini skirts, bell-bottoms and the hippie look from the late 1960s. Platform shoes appeared on the fashion scene in 1971 and often had soles two to four inches thick. Both men and women wore them. Wide-legged, flared jeans and trousers were another fashion mainstay for both men and women throughout most of the decade. The “disco look,” complete with three-piece suits for men and rayon or jersey wrap dresses for women, platform shoes gave way to mules and ankle-strapped shoes by the end of the decade. At Forks High some of these fashion trends made an appearance in the halls, but when it came to long hair for guys, that took a little longer to catch on. We listened to music on vinyl and eight-track tapes with cassette tapes coming later in

Letters to the editor policy
The Forks Forum belongs to the readers of the newspaper. The opinion section is the place where reader thoughts appear as letters to the editor. Letters longer than 300 words are sent back to the writer for revision. We only edit for spelling and grammar. Any substantial changes are sent to the letter writer for revision. While we strive to publish all letters, those focusing on local issues take precedence over statewide or national issues. No personal attacks or unsubstantiated allegations are accepted. Those letters are returned to the writer with an explanation why the letter is not going to run in its existing form. Deadline for letters to appear is noon the Monday before publication. Letters are published on a space-available basis, with time-sensitive letters on local issues taking first priority. There are times, therefore, when a letter might not appear for a week or two. Letters to the editor can be mailed to the Forks Forum, PO Box 300, Forks, WA 8331; e-mailed to email@example.com; faxed to 374-5739; or dropped off at our office at 44 S.

the decade and there was some really great music and some bad and then there was disco music. At Forks High we had Spartan Lake, the new gym and the old gym, dodge ball in PE, using your instrument case or Pee-chee as a makeshift rain hat as we ran to the home ec or band rooms, and then there were the bus trips with Mrs. Stacey and Mrs. Morgan in the drivers seat, they always got us there and back. This weekend those that graduated in the seventies decade will be getting together to remember these things and many more at the all 1970s FHS reunion, although the classes on both ends of the decade felt left out so they also are invited. It is hoped that this reunion can become an annual event with the Forks Elks Lodge as it is using it as a fundraiser. Just a reminder if you decide to get out those old platform shoes, try not to break an ankle or a hip. Christi Baron, editor

who have unclaimed money and assets held in trust by the Washington State Department of Revenue. The question is: What are you waiting for? Revenue says there is no better time to check www. claimyourcash.org to see if you or a family member has a share of the nearly $1 billion in property waiting to be claimed. “Even if you’ve checked the website or made a claim in the past, everyone should visit the website at least once a year,” said Revenue director Carol K. Nelson. “The list of names and money we receive grows each year.” Revenue administers the unclaimed property program on behalf of the state of Washington. All the assets are held until the rightful owner files a claim. Revenue does not charge a fee for this service. Unclaimed property typically includes uncashed paychecks, utility deposits, bank accounts, stocks and bonds, refunds, life insurance proceeds and safe deposit box contents. Usually, these assets have gone untouched by the owner for three or more years and the holding company is required to report them to the state where the owner last resided. Between July 1, 2012, and June 30, 2013, Revenue returned more than $68 million to 170,800 people. In that same time period, Revenue added 858,000 names and $140 million to the unclaimed property database. All 50 states operate unclaimed property programs to reunite owners with their assets.

Sports FORKS FORUM
Forks at Montesano Baseball MONTESANO – Inconsistency caught back up with Forks as they dropped both ends of a doubleheader versus the Bulldogs last Friday, April 18. The Spartans gave an honest effort in the first contest, losing by a score of 6-4, but they fell flat in game two, bottoming out in a 9-1 defeat. Forks went up early in game one, taking a 4-0 lead after plating four runs in the second inning as their Thunderbird graced bats seemed to be emanating good fortune. Starting pitcher Reis Lawson gave a gutsy performance in his spot-start, going 3 2/3 innings while surrendering three earned runs. The sweet smell of victory gradually dissipated though. In turn, the Forks bats went cold and the pitching and defense began to falter. After Lawson ran out of gas in the fourth inning, his relief Reece Hagen, promptly surrendered a 2-run home run, knotting the game at 4-4 each. All the while Bulldogs relief pitcher, Kyle Englund, set out retiring Spartans in order, frame after frame. The Spartans would not score another run in the game. In the bottom of the sixth inning the Bulldogs pieced together their winning rally by lining up a hit batter, another hit batter, then a single and finally a bases clearing double. That trip through the heart of the order gave the Bulldogs their final 6-4 advantage. Hagen took the loss on the mound for the Spartans, while Englund earned the victory in relief for Montesano. Reece Moody led the Spartans early offensive attack, going 2-2 with a run scored and an RBI. Parker Browning (1-3, run, RBI) and Caleb Adams (2-2, run) stratified the bottom half of the Spartans lineup. “We played hard but just didn’t come out on top. Our bats just kind of went dead after the second (inning),” said Forks coach Wayne Daman. In game two Forks was unable to muster a similar fight. The Spartans were lucky enough to score a run in the top of the first inning without the benefit of a hit after Javier Contreras got on base via an error and Nate Gimlin drove him in with an RBI groundout to second base. Forks was only able to bump their way into three hits and zero runs the rest of the way. Contreras started the game on short rest for Forks and allowed two earned runs in two innings of work before ceding to relief crew. A six-run explosion by Montesano in the fifth inning blew the game wide open and the Spartans were unable to alter their fate in the final frames of the game. Contreras took the loss for Forks, while Montesano’s Jordan Bussard threw five scoreless innings in relief for the win. “We got a good start from our pitching, but they were able to keep us off the board,” noted Daman. “We put some good swings on the ball, just couldn’t find the holes in their defense.” Billy Palmer looked promising in short relief for the Spartans, allowing zero runs in 1

2/3 innings. Contreras led the anemic Forks offense going 1-3 with the only run scored. Palmer and Hagen added one hit each.
Forks (3-7, 1-7 league) traveled to Tenino on Tuesday for a regularly scheduled league contest. They also will finish up a game that was postponed due to darkness, that is currently tied 5-5 in the top of the sixth inning. Rochester will visit the field in Beaver on Thursday for a league doubleheader. The first pitch is scheduled for 3 p.m. *For schedule information and frequent team updates, you can follow the Spartans on Twitter, @ForksBaseball.
Really wet track meet The Spartans hosted a track meet last Saturday with seven teams attending, one from as far away as Ketchikan. Coach Pam Gale described the event as, “Good things happening on a really wet day.” Forks had four first-place winners with Cari Larson in the 800, Tristina Smith in the javelin, Miguel Morales in the shot and Devon Perez in the high jump. At the end of the meet only 4 points separated the top three with Forks coming in third with a team score of 109.

Forks has a licensed plumber! Nathon Damron began working as a plumber with his father on the weekends. It was Los Angeles and even the stars have plumbing problems although Damron didn’t want to give names, in case they read the Forum, he did share a story about a couple of short actors that are married, one was in “Cheers” and one was in “Taxi,” that had a rule that when working at their home the plumbers could not look at or talk to them. Another actress with the initials S.J.P. from “Sex and the City” was not very nice and only fed her dogs lettuce. After a tour of duty in Iraq, the Damron family eventually moved to Bakersfield where Damron worked for the Sheriff’s Office and they vacationed several times on the Olympic Peninsula. One day the Damrons asked themselves, “What are we doing? There must be a better place to live.” And they began thinking about moving to Washington. Eventually Damron’s wife got a job as a teacher at Forks Elementary. After talking to former plumber John Anderson, Damron decided to start the process of transferring his plumber’s license to Washington which he describes as a “nightmare.” Since starting his plumbing business things have been busy and the Damron family really likes Forks.

Don’t honk if you like geese Every spring, West End residents that travel around Lake Crescent look for the nesting goose. But what do you know about Canada geese? Canada geese are very loyal and emotional toward each other, and have strong family values; a mate will put itself in danger to protect its partner and parents will place themselves in danger to protect their young. If one of a mated pair or a family member is injured, a goose will go down with the injured goose and guard the injured goose until it recovers or dies. It is during the nesting season that Canada geese get a reputa-
tion of being aggressive, although it is always the human approaching posing as a threat or predator that is at fault. Humans need to understand the behavior of wildlife such as a wild bird and not approach the nesting goose or the gander guarding his or her mate. Goslings begin communicating with their parents while still in the egg. After hatching, there is an amazing change in the attitude of the gander. Where he would previously chase off any other geese in the area, he now becomes much more tolerant. Sometimes, if there are other clutches of goslings in the area, they will often group together The Canada goose once again has returned to its nesting place at Lake Crescent as is seen here during a morning drizzle.

in flocks called “crèches” and be looked after by all the adults. Older, experienced geese will sometimes “kidnap” goslings from younger, inexperienced geese (if they see that the younger geese are not fit parents), and raise them with their young. The original parents will stay back and follow the group, but not be allowed to take their goslings back. Young geese have flight feathers at about 16 weeks old. Canada geese are very family oriented, and have a very low divorce rate, usually mating for life.

Alternative Spring Break in Forks For Spring Break many University of Washington students headed for warm sandy beach, but 69 of them will instead spent their week off helping young students in rural communities learn about art, literacy and the environment. In turn, these UW students will learn about life, culture and education in rural Washington. This is the 14th year of Alternative Spring Break, sponsored by The Pipeline Project at the UW. Since it began, nearly 680 UW undergrads have worked with 9,500 K-12 students. This year, teams of UW students went to 13 communities across the state to work with 780 rural students from elementary to high school. UW students volunteering for Alternative Spring Break come from a wide range of majors, including education and premed. The program is so popular it has a waiting list. “About 40 percent of UW participants have an interest in education as a career and see this as a great way to
experience rural education, but most of them participate because it sounds like a really awesome way to spend spring break,” said Christine Stickler, director of The Pipeline Project. Students were in rural classrooms March 24-28. Fivemember teams at the nine sites focused on literacy and art worked with students to “find their voice” in writing about themselves. At the end of the week, UW students created a professional-quality magazine. Every student in the program will receive a copy. Besides Neah Bay, UW student teams were in Forks and LaPush on the Olympic Peninsula; Harrah, Toppenish and Mattawa in the Yakima Valley; Brewster, Omak, Curlew, Tonasket, Oroville and Kalama in the Okanogan; and in Long Beach. Former Forks teacher Sally Millici played host to the group that came to Forks. She said, “I was in charge of entertainment and a place to stay and they entertained me! What a delightful group.

night. What a joy!” Forks Elementary third grade teacher Kim Northcut has been working with the program for the last seven years. She said “when I took it over I really looked at how to make it more meaningful.” She explained how the UW students eat lunch with the kids, go to recess with them and at the end of the week every child gets a book, “They love it.”
It’s an opportunity for UW students to have what many of them describe as a transformative experience. They come back thinking about the state in a way they’ve never thought about before, especially in terms of rural education.” The experience links rural teachers and students to the UW in a concrete way. “It can lead to some very magical outcomes.”

Two reviews of Chiggers Stokes’ ‘Between Forks and Alpha Centauri’ Tom Larkin Logger A couple of years ago I read “Between Forks and Alpha Centauri” and enjoyed it. My friend, Chiggers Stokes, asked me to review it. But I don’t need to come home from knocking down trees all day for a living, to write some fluffy review for what might fall in the genre of hippie literature. But I grew up in Forks. This book speaks about my town. I don’t know ono-ma-topoei-a from i-don-wannas***u, but my mother was an English teacher here in Forks. She would agree with me: It’s a little creepy to have the author address the reader directly within the context of the story. I mean, if I want to talk to Chiggers, I’ll speed dial him on my cell phone. Or look for him over in the tofu section of Thifty Mart. But having him trying on some conversation with me in the pages of the story is like coming into the bathroom while I’m on the toilet.
I will say that “Between Forks” had as much to say about the town I grew up in as other books about Forks I’ve stuck my nose in. Well, like the Forks phone book. Or the first page and a half of “Twilight.” And while I’m reviewing books let me say, that I grew up hunting in the woods that Stephanie Meyer depicts in this turdus opus. Like other hunters, I learn to read scat for messages left by wildlife.
Nothing in my experience in the woods prepared me for a bowel movement of the proportions of the Twilight saga. And unlike the scat you’ve been reading in the woods, there is no message! Back to “Between Forks” … at least there is a message. I’m not sure what it is, exactly. Mossy Stone, in the book, seems like a real mossback. She is the daughter of a logger and a modern pioneer. The loggers walk as tall in the story as the environmental freaks. A bunch of tree huggers get burned up in a wild fire. So there is some comic relief. And, at the end of the story, it’s the Enviro Police that come for Mossy who is a poster child for private property and let me keep my farm. The book is about the issues we care about in Forks regardless of our political stripe. It’s about holding onto lifestyle and the value of the wild places that are at our threshold here in Forks. If I come back to my mobile home, knocking sawdust off to get to my recliner chair; tired
from busting my butt all day … and I learn that a tree that I just laid down in the woods is on its way to make copies of “Between Forks,” I can live with that. Everyone wins. But, if I’m making stumps for “Twilight,” may the working woods be forever wilderness. If you want to read “Between Forks” but you don’t want me to kill a tree for it, check it out from the Forks Library for free. Bryon Monohon Forks Mayor “Between Forks and Alpha Centauri” is a homespun novel that transports one to the relative isolation of Washington’s Western Olympic Peninsula while effectively examining the human condition as a whole. This is a thought provoking read for anyone interested in naturalism, environmental science, philosophy, physical science, quantum mechanics, American National Parks, logging, small towns, politics, the legal system and urban and rural planning issues. It does make a rather complete novel with a lot of themes all ef-
fectively dealt with. In Mossy Stone (not as silly as name as you might suspect) Stokes has developed an idealized character of natural and spiritual beauty as well as intellect who leads the lifestyle many in today’s world respect and wish to emulate but fail to understand. A variety of “regional” and “local” characters fill the pages of this novel but always remain part of a larger more complex world thus escaping typical stereotypical traps that authors often fall into. (I’m thinking of David Gutterson’s “Our Lady of the Forest” here.) I suspect that you will see yourself in some portions of several of the characters in this novel which makes the challenging and disturbing future Stokes portrays all the more chilling but makes the poignant beauty all the sweeter. I offer a tip of the cap to the portrayal of the character Julie Smith. There is probably a whole novel in her character alone. This novel deserves a wider audience and consideration of its topics and themes.

Governor eats at Sully’s It seems as though Washington’s governor Jay Inslee, after his meeting at LaPush with the Quiluete Tribe, was a little hungry and he and his staff stopped at Sully’s for burgers and a fishwich last week. Also dining at Sully’s at the same time was a man who loves to talk politics, Mark Soderlind. It is reported that Soderlind joined the governor and his staff and even followed them out to their car as they were trying to leave.

Washington Coast Savers hit the beaches by Donna Barr Rain and wind didn’t prevent Washington Coast Savers from sweeping clean coastal peninsula beaches, during the annual cleanup, Saturday, April 19. Coastal people aren’t made of sugar; they don’t melt. Coated and booted for the rain, determined volunteers turned out to get the job done. from Cape Disappointment in the far south, hitting beaches all along the West Coast to Hobuck Beach and around the point down the Strait of Juan de Fuca to Pillar Point. New cleanup locations went further east, starting at Salt Creek and ending at Port Williams. Word was spread in the area by the Clallam County Marine Research Center. This year, gap analysis is being done to see what’s being covered and what isn’t. In 2013, 23 tons of dangerous, damaging garbage was hauled off the beach by hard-working volunteers. This year, cleaning included roadsides. Volunteer Emil Person, picking debris off a steep bank along the twisting roadside on High-

way 112, demonstrated why drivers should be careful during the cleanup — and how throwing garbage out of a car endangers cleanup volunteers. Determined cleaners will climb, dig and drag to get the debris off the beach. Pointing at the rain-swept beach behind him, Person said, “This stuff goes right on out there into the water.” Jim Waddell and his son Sam, from Port Angeles, signed up at the Clallam Bay Visitors’ Center before heading out on the hunt.
Jim worked on the Multi-Vision Integration plan organized earlier by the Clallam Bay/Sekiu Chamber of Commerce. Sam was participating in the cleanup for his Junior Culminating Project for Port Angeles High School. Volunteers spotted fishing eagles and other wildlife during the cleanup, including avian busy-bodies. Packets of blue rubber gloves left out with collection bags were attractive to curious crows, who were quick-
ly discouraged by volunteers, including Karin Ashton — who was pretty busy herself. Ashton discovered half a trailer rotting at the second turnout at Shipwreck Point, along with the ugly remainders of a garbage burn. The charred cans, bottles and baby diapers had washed out across the beach. Ashton made short work of the mess and returned to the visitor’s center to report the trailer. The Chito Beach Report held a barbecue from 1-4 p.m. to thank the beach cleanup volunteers. Anybody who worked the beaches was welcome. Roy Morris, of Coast Savers, said, “The purpose of the celebration is to show appreciation for the people who clean the beaches.” Morris said that competition among student classes, schools and communities to have the cleanest beach was being considered, to add to the both the fun and the effectiveness of the cleanups. As a note, round-the-year cleanup on the Clallam Bay beach makes it the cleanest beach in the area — and probably on the West Coast.

The Ozette 2014 Beach Clean-up volunteers included these three women, Kelsie, Wendi and Stephani, who each year come from Bremerton and Silverdale, camp for the weekend and come out each day with these amazing loads. Those that participated hiked three miles out to the beach then three miles down the beach and three miles back. Around 110 people trekked with trash that they found on the beaches and found all kinds of ways to carry much more than expected. Some people took multiple trips and still were smiling at the end.

Fishing heals wounded warriors
It was about seven years ago that several members of the Forks Lions Club, Bob Gooding and Guy Ruble were two of them, got together and decided to contact Fort Lewis about inviting some veterans out to Forks for a dinner and some fishing. The club has sponsored the event about seven times now. The Forks Motel and Pacific Inn also have participated by donating room for the visiting fishermen. The night before the fishing trip everyone gets together at Pacific Pizza where the vets are introduced to their fishing guide for the next day. To raise money for the event the Lions Club has held auctions to cover the cost of fishing licenses and meals while the veterans are in Forks. Thanks to the Forks Lions Club for thinking of this amazing and wonderful way of thanking our veterans.
