Habitat home groundbreaking

The Weaver family did a little groundbreaking — or attempted to — the ground put up a bit of a fight, but eventually everyone got a shovel full of dirt on the site that will be their new home. Forum photo

the most recent efforts to find and qualify a family from the West End and is excited about getting a new neighbor. Other supporters include the Rev. Pam Hunter of the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Forks, Bert Paul, longtime Habitat partner and owner of the Forks Outfitters and Thriftway, and Irene Enchiribel who has assisted with applications from members of the Quileute Tribe in LaPush. The effort was so successful in fact, that a total of three families from the West End have been approved by the Habitat board of directors. Mary Coberly and Leroy Black of LaPush and Shay and Kristal Gooding of Forks have all been selected for homeownership through the Habitat program and will begin work on their homes when fundraising goals are met. Habitat is greatly in need of volunteers ready to lend a hand on the construction site in Forks to help make the dream of homeownership come true for the Weaver family. If you would like an opportunity to learn some valuable skills and help a neighbor in need, contact the office today to find out how you can help. Habitat is funded entirely by charitable donations and relies on the generosity of individuals and foundations to achieve its goals. If you are able to contribute to the work that Habitat is doing in Clallam County, all donations go directly toward building affordable homes for local families. Donations can be sent to P.O. Box 1479, Port Angeles, WA 98362. For more information about Habitat for Humanity, call the administrative office at 360-681-6780.


The Weaver family of Forks has a lot to look forward to in 2014 as the newest Habitat for Humanity of Clallam County homeowners. Work is set to begin this spring in Habitat’s Maloney Lane development in Forks, groundbreaking for the first new home was held at noon Saturday, May 10. Mark, Trina, Mark Jr., Kenneth, Tia and Chris Weaver currently are living in a home that is literally falling down around them. As a Habitat partner family, the Weavers will work alongside Habitat volunteers to build a decent, affordable home that they will purchase from Habitat through a nointerest loan. At Saturday’s event each member of the Weaver family said a few words thanking those that have made this dream come true, daughter Tia was the most emotional commenting on how it will be to have a real bedroom of her own. In 2008, Habitat built the first home in the development for the Almazan family and has been focusing its building efforts developing a 14-lot subdivision in Port Angeles since then. “We are so excited to be working in Forks again,” said Habitat Executive Director Dave Finley. “It has been a challenge for us to coordinate the building effort from our office in Port Angeles, but we are ready to move forward thanks to the West End residents who have done so much to make this happen.” Many of the speakers on Saturday referenced some of the problems that happened on the last Habitat House. Forks Habitat homeowner Juan Almazan has been a big supporter of

Forks eighth-grader Jeremiah Salinas has won the top prize, in his age division, in the 11th Annual Voices of Children Contest. This contest is for children in Washington who are being raised by a relative other than their parents. The contest honors both the children, and the more than 37,000 relatives in Washington who are raising them. For his winning essay on what living with his grandmother has meant to him, Jeremiah won $100 and a free night at Great Wolf Lodge for four of his family. The prizes are to be presented at the Governor’s Mansion in Olympia on May 19, where Jeremiah also will get the opportunity to read his essay. Jeremiah is excited about winning, saying “Thank you to the ‘Voices of Children Contest’ for giving me a chance to do this.” His winning letter: I came to live with my grandma when I was a month old. I don’t remember much when I was that young so I believe everything was good. Since I have been getting older we do have our

She is handicapped, so whenever she needs my help I will help her. We joke and laugh about a lot of things. My grandma works very hard to get me the things I want and the things I need. She spoils me in a good way. I know she will always be here for me, at the end of the day I sleep well knowing that I am safe and loved.

While they were hoping for triplets, one egg didn’t hatch, they are just thrilled with the twins. The event, much anticipated by U.S. Highway 101 drivers, took place a couple weeks ago. The happy couple are tight beaked about any names for the two new hatchlings as well as whether they had boys and/or girls.

Bruch announces for Clallam County commissioner, District 3

Port Angeles City Council member Sissi Bruch has announced that she will file as a candidate for Clallam County commissioner. The 3rd District seat is presently held by Mike Doherty who has served the West End for four terms. The district stretches from the western precincts of Port Angeles all the way to the Pacific Ocean and includes Joyce, Forks and the Lower Elwha Klallam, Makah, Ozette and Quileute reservations. “This is a challenging and stunning piece of Northwest Washington. Its remoteness and the impact of our national forests and Olympic National Park support its beauty and unique character. However, bringing basic 21st-century services to these beautiful but remote communities requires imagination and hard work,” Bruch noted. “Mike Doherty has been a true leader across the

Bill Peach to run for commissioner Bill Peach made the drive in to Port Angeles on Monday to file for candidacy for Clallam County Commissioner District 3. Peach, a Republican, is retired and is serving as president of the Forks Chamber of Commerce and also is a Quillayute Valley Parks and Recreation District commissioner. Peach is the former executive director of the Quileute Tribe and a former regional manager with Rayonier, identifying his experiences with these former jobs as giving him what it will take to do the job as commissioner. Peach also made a bid for the position in 2010, losing in the primary to Robin Poole. Incumbent Mike Doherty had not filed as of Monday afternoon. Peach said, “I am running for county commissioner because I believe a business friendly government can provide jobs, conserve our natural resources and preserve our culture. I am not your typical candidate.”

state and the county in speaking for the diverse residents and the environmental and economic priorities of this district. Following in Mike’s footsteps (if he does not run) will be tough. And the voters of the 3rd District should look to a candidate who has the professional talent and the problem-solving experience that matches their needs,” Bruch said. Bruch’s professional background includes advanced degrees in landscape architecture and urban planning. She worked as a landscape architect and project manager in Maryland working side by side with contractors and developers. She moved on to teach planning, design and construction at Michigan State University and is a published author. Currently she is the senior planner for the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe. Bruch was elected to the Port Angeles City Council in 2011.

Barbara Jean Slyter January 25, 1938 - April 25, 2014

Barbara Jean Slyter passed away on April 25, 2014, at the age of 76. She was born to Frances and James Daman on January 25, 1938 in Shelton, Washington. Soon after, the Daman family soon moved to Forks and added two more children, Janet and Kenny. Barb would graduate from Forks High School in 1956 and call Forks home for the majority of her life. In November of 1979, Barb met and started dating Gary Slyter. They were married on July 17, 1982. Barb had four children, Tim Rasmussen, Ted Rasmussen, Brenda Palmer, and Lance Slyter. She also had ten grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. Barb enjoyed baking, crocheting, knitting, volunteering with her Emblem Club sisters, playing bingo, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. She will be missed by many. Barb was preceded in death by her parents, siblings, Everett, Joe, and Dorothy Daman, and best, friend Lena. A celebration of life will be held at the Elks Lodge, 941 Merchants Rd, on June 14, 2014 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Clallam County Auditor Patty Rosand announces that she plans to retire at the end of her second term, Dec. 31, 2014. After 27 years of public service she plans to enjoy traveling, gardening and spending time with her husband and family. Rosand became Election Supervisor in 1987 when hired by former Auditor Mary Hordyk. She served in that position until running for auditor in 2006. She ran for a second term in 2010. Duties of the county auditor include being the vehicle/ vessel licensing agent for the Department of Licensing, conducting all local, state and federal elections in the county, county payroll, accounts payable, annual report preparation, recording documents, issuing marriage licenses and being an official and acceptance agent for passport applications as granted by the U.S. Department of State.

THE REAL FORKS Humor — Bringing new life to obituaries

by Christy Rasmussen Ford In Christyland, obituaries would make people smile and maybe even laugh. Unfortunately, as I discovered while writing my gram’s obituary, the rule book states that they must be serious. This is unfortunate because laughter is the best medicine … after Nyquil anyway. Who doesn’t love Nyquil? In Christyland, this is how my gram’s obituary would have gone; There will be a celebration of life held for Barbara (Daman) Slyter at the Elks Lodge on June 14. The keyword here is celebration. No, not kegs and red solo cups kind of celebrating, but sharing happy memories and remembering Barb. Barbara Jean Daman was born on Jan. 25, 1938. Frances and James Daman welcomed Barb into the world feet first (literally, she was breech). If you knew Barb, you knew that she probably thought she was late for bingo. Barb’s mom claimed that since Barb was such a tough delivery (stubborn from the beginning), she would never do it again. She fibbed. Within a few years, Barb got two younger siblings (Janet and Kenny). They would all be more like best friends than siblings. Forks was home to Barb for the majority of her life. She graduated from Forks High as did many of her kids and grandkids later on. Thankfully, she left a good legacy so there were no preconceived notions of any of us when we entered FHS. This was much appreciated. Barb was blessed with four children; Tim Rasmussen, Ted Rasmussen, Brenda Palmer and Lance Slyter. She had 10 grandkids and a million great-grandkids. OK, more like 19 and two more that she barely missed the arrival of. Somehow she managed to get everyone’s name right … by the third try or so. In 1979, Barb met Gary Slyter. The two were married on July 17, 1982. They were perfectly matched. Gary loved to drive and Barb loved to tell him how to drive. Barb loved to cook and Gary loved to test for quality control. Barb loved bingo and Gary loved to pretend he just played for his wife’s sake. During their marriage, they would share many good years laughing together, driving many miles in the “motor” (motorhome), and loving each other through everything. Talking about Barb’s life without mentioning the Emblem Club would be silly. She spent countless hours volunteering and spending time with her beloved Emblem Club sisters. No worries ladies, she never revealed what really happened at your state “meetings.” Your secrets are safe! Barb was very talented at crocheting, knitting, quilting, baking, sewing, canning, smiling, laughing, joking, making people happy, volunteering, etc., etc., etc. The list could go on about her talents and wonderful traits. Everyone says that about their loved ones, but this time it’s 100 percent true. I kind of knew the lady. She was very loved by many. Be sure to come help us celebrate her life on June 14 from 1-3 p.m. Letters to the editor policy The Forks Forum belongs to the readers of the newspaper.

What used to be “there”? Do you ever drive to Port Angeles and think about what used to be “there” during your drive? After finding some old photos of what used to be at Fairholm, I thought I would jog some old memories. There are two theories on who named Fairholm (sometimes with an e) one being Carolyn Jones Rixon named the spot in the late 1890s; another is Postmistress Mrs. George Machelle gave the spot the name in 1893 when the post office needed a name. Early in its history Fairholm was used as a ferry terminal for transporting passengers to and from the east side of the lake. The first ferry was a passenger steamer put in the lake in 1899, it was called “Lady of the Lake” and was built at Port Crescent. Another ferry to make an appearance on the lake was the ferry “Flier” and it was built on Lake Crescent by the Barnes Brothers. The Fairholm Landing was purchased by Capt. Horne in May 1916 and he built a log house on the beach, he later sold the property to Al Fairservice. After the Olympic Highway was completed, ferry service on the lake was no longer needed. Fairholm Landing changed hands again in 1928 from the Sol Duc Land Company to Bill and Betty Lenoir and was later named “Lenoirs” It operated under that name until October 1964, when Art and Shelia Schott purchased the business and changed it back to the Fairholm Resort. By 1968

Fairholm(e) resort 1916 on Lake Crescent, owned and operated by Capt. Horne was later sold to Al Fairservices. The old ferry dock as seen from the bridge of the ferry “Flier,” in upper center is the sign that points to the Fairholm Hotel.

it was a busy place. The Schotts made huge changes to the property, completely remodeling the entire business adding a dining room and cocktail lounge, both overlooking the lake, adding facilities for banquets and parties. They offered rental boats and paddle bikes as well as lots of accommodations for guests. Today all that is left of the once busy business is the Fairholm General Store, which I don’t know if and when it is ever open, and Olympic National Park that offers camping.

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.

Spartans lose one to Hoquiam HOQUIAM May 6 – Forks had the Grizzlies on the ropes for a round or two on Tuesday afternoon and looked momentarily primed for an upset of their playoff bound opponent. Then the Spartans gloves got heavy and their feet began to drag, and in the blink of an eye they were KO’d in the sixth frame by a score of 12-2. The early part of the contest was full of hope for Forks though. After going down 1-0 in the second inning the Spartans clawed back to put two runs on the board in the third frame after Reis Lawson led off the inning with a hit, followed by a knock for Reece Hagen and capped with an RBI single by Reece Moody. When the Grizzlies answered back with one run in the bottom half of the third inning to tie the game, it seemed like the two teams were in for a hitting

contest. Unfortunately for Forks, they wound up absorbing blows for the rest of the game rather than trading them, as the Spartans managed just one more hit the rest of the way. Lawson, who started the game on the mound for Forks, was forced to retire from the pitcher’s position early in the fourth inning when he was afflicted with a shoulder injury. Caleb Adams took the mound in relief and retired the side without a run, but he and Javier Contreras combined to allow five runs in the fifth inning. Nate Gimlin took the hill for Forks in the sixth inning and promptly surrendered another five runs to seal the 10-run victory for Hoquiam. Lawson pitched a solid 3 2/3 innings before succumbing to his arm troubles, giving up just

two earned runs, while also going 2-3 at the plate with a run scored. Caleb Adams also provided spark in the Spartans lineup, moving up from number nine in the order to the two hole, where he went 2-3. Moody was 1-3 with two RBIs.

Joel Brydon earned the win for Hoquiam throwing six complete innings and allowing just two runs. Forks (4-13, 2-13 league) wrapped up their season with a doubleheader at Rainier on Thursday, May 8.

Forks Family Fair was fun!

According to organizers of the 4th Annual Forks Family Fair, held at the Forks Elks Lodge last Saturday, this year’s event was a huge success with almost 300 people in attendance –156 children and 138 adults. The Masonic lodges of Sequim and Forks completed 63 Child ID kits to give to parents. Trained volunteers give parents a video of their child, an impression of their teeth, a DNA swab and their child’s fingerprints; over 50 children made it through the Forks Police Department’s Bicycle Rodeo Safety Course and received free helmets; Laff Pack Clowns painted hundreds of faces and made all manner of unusual things out of balloons; the local 4-H Club brought goats, chickens and roosters; and 25 other Bailey Johnson, age 5 of Forks, was delighted with the organizations offered more rabbit balloon made and given to her by clown Rudiger fun and information.

Kloppman to Forks Float wins at Irrigation Festival Mark and Pat Soderlind and Charlene Caldwell presented perform the Forks Old-Fash4th of July classical piano ioned float Saturday at the

West End resident Chris Kloppman will present his seventh annual recital of classical piano music on Wednesday, May 21, at 7 p.m. at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 250 N. Blackberry. Vocalist Pastor Pam Hunter and Megan Munk will also perform. A free will offering will be taken to benefit the Prince of Peace building fund.

Sequim Irrigation Festival. The featured “Home Town Hero” was Chief Petty Officer John Jarvis, who served in Korea in U.S. Navy, from 1950-1953. The float received the Grand Prize For Most Patriotic Float. The next scheduled parade for the Forks float will be in Port Townsend on May 17 for the 79th Rhododendron Festival.

Forks entertains Germans Diane Schostak, executive director of the Olympic Peninsula Visitor Bureau located in Port Angeles, spent some time showing off what the peninsula has to offer travelers to a group from Germany last week. The tour, which was sponsored by Lufthansa and BrandAmerica, a company that specializes in expansion of American brands and products, spent time at the San Juan Islands, Hurricane Ridge and Lake Crescent before making a stop in Forks at the Forks Chamber’s Visitor Center. There they picked up Twilight maps and the like and checked out the Forks Timber Museum next door. Schostak explained how an influx of money to the Seattle area tourism industry is benefiting the West End as well.

Taking time out from their trip around the peninsula, a group who work in the tourism industry in Germany, took time out for lunch in Forks last week.

After lunch at Blakeslee’s, where the Forks Forum editor helped explain American baseball using sugar packets as bases, the group hit the road again in their tour bus headed for the Hoh Rain Forest and then on to Lake Quinault before going back to Seattle.

Chatting Around the Campfire

From Bill White’s Legend files:

The Wager V

by Duane Miles When the topic of a speech includes a lot of detailed subject matter, it is sometimes advisable in certain circles for the speaker to share an appropriate joke or humorous story with an audience. This is likewise true when the story line of a column such as this is of a similar nature. However, because the present story requires no such aid, the following catchup, like most, is primarily added for an entirely different reason. That reason is left wholly to the interpretation of each reader. Just as in the catchup portion of this column’s last episode, a certain person again finds himself at the Espresso Café one morning. But this time he is blessed with the company of not one, but two retirees. You guessed it, one was

old standby Sam McElravy. The other was Howard Yanish, also a frequent to this establishment. Howard, for those of you who might not know, is the owner of the only coin operated car wash in town. Several days earlier I had inserted seven quarters into Howard’s car wash coin collecting devise. I complimented Howard on the generous amount of scrub brush suds. I further explained that with such a high volume of soap, my car was squeaky clean well before he shut the water off. Immediately following my statements, Sam cut into the conversation. There was an air of urgency in his voice. He suggested to Howard that for a small fee, music could be added to that car wash experience. To this comment, Howard inquisitively questioned,” Why should I do

something like that?” This opened the door for Sam’s planned finale! For now with a look of triumph in his eyes, he otherwise deadpanned, “Then you would be providing a soap opera for your customers.” From the look on your face, it’s undoubtedly time to get back to Bill’s tale. Bushelers maintained a tally of each day’s volume total. Recording each tree’s mass during the day was done by inscribing these figures, in pencil, on the inside of a tin (aluminum) hat. Bill carried a pencil attached to an elastic cord anchored to his hickory shirt. Those penciled numbers were erased after being recorded. Periodically, the camp’s bullbuck (man in charge of bushelers) would check the accuracy of a cutters records. In regard to whether those totals actually matched what had been laid on the ground each day, this had to be done in the woods. Total accuracy in this scale checking process by a bullbuck is difficult. Consequently, there was somewhat of an honor system being exercised. However if the bullbuck could establish a worker’s starting and ending point in the woods for a particular day, then that scale could be matched

to a cutter’s records. This information becomes significant to this tale later on. A busheler is assigned a given area (strip) to cut, staying inside this area until each tree is felled and bucked. If such an area contained 500,000 board feet of timber, it would take Bill about 10 days to finish, whereupon he would move to another strip. Strip borders are marked by ribbon, labels or paint. Each cutter for Don Brown Logging worked alone, with his strip being around 800 to 1,000 feet wide with those same distances for length. For safety reasons, a busheler always began at the lowest portion of his area, working uphill as he left fell and bucked trees below him. In addition, each cutter maintained a safe distance from a busheler working on an adjoining strip. I see that you are yawning, so we’ll end this episode here. Next time the crew bus arrives at this job site, I guarantee that things are going to get a bit more interesting. To be continued … May light for your feet guide you on the path of life until we meet again.

Sheriff Benedict to honor Forks MIddle School student


Sheriff Bill Benedict announces the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office sponsorship of 11-year-old Forks resident Ethan Gossard as Clallam County’s honorary sheriff at the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission’s (WSJCJTC) Chief for a Day Celebration on Thursday, Aug. 21. Chief for a Day is about celebrating the lives of children who have been diagnosed with life-threatening or chronic illness. This year 34 law enforcement agencies will sponsor a child to participate in the event. Each law enforcement agency will provide their honorary “Chief” or “Sheriff” with a hand-tailored uniform and gift basket which includes items for the child and their family. Ethan, a sixth-grader at Forks Middle School, was diagnosed with spastic diplegia cerebral palsy as an infant. In 2013, Ethan underwent a femoral derotation osteotomy to improve his walking ability. On Aug. 21, Ethan and his family will be transported to the WSJCJTC, in police cars, by police escort. Ethan will be sworn in as “Sheriff” by Benedict, have lunch with all attendees and academy recruits and then participate in outside presentations provided by law enforcement agencies and criminal justice entities including K-9 units, bicycle patrols, SWAT, rifle units and more. This event is donation funded and open to the public. For those individuals, businesses or organizations wishing to donate funds in support of Ethan’s special day, donations can be made to the “West End CFAD Committee” at any of Clallam County’s First Federal branches.

Reduce, Reuse and RE-SHRED

by Jaymi Goetze As many know, Forks lost its only surf and skate shop about a year ago. As of May 1, Wilderness Creative opened its doors, located in the heart of Forks at 51 N. Forks Ave. This is a new surf and skate shop with new people. The space is small, but the environment is huge! Inside is starting to fill with skate decks, surf boards, shoes and clothing. On the walls hang local artwork, pictures and mountains made from silver duct tape. It’s actually very cool! The man behind the venture is David Herberg, 33, from Seattle, with an educational background in film. Believe it or not, he was . the key grip for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ hit music videos, “Thrift Shop” and “Same Love!” So why would he come to Forks if he personally knows superstars? Herberg has been surfing First Beach in LaPush for years and fell in love with the area.

rent out surf boards in exchange for a donation, large or small, that gives back to the 501(c)(3). For those who don’t know what a 501(c)(3) is, it’s a code that allows federal tax exemption for nonprofit organizations such as charities and private foundations. Wilderness Creative will specialize in having items such as used skateboards, shoes, back packs and clothes for people in the community who can’t afford new things. “Just because it’s old, doesn’t mean it’s dead,” he said. Herberg’s intention, personally, is to act as a mentor for members of the community’s younger generation, whether that be preparing them for a GED test, a ride to Port Angeles so they can get their driver’s license, and/or teaching them to be selfsustainable. The shop also will act as an art studio as well as a place to hold events for locals. Sell your art; let people hear your band. Hopefully some donations can be made during this time. No events have been held so far, but the community, especially youth, should act on this opportunity. Contact Herberg if you need to know any information about hosting an event! Not only is there the skate shop, but a friend of Herberg’s has started a garden that will be full of healthy options/snacks for her own family and for children at the skate park so they can stop eating crushed up Top Ramen packages and chips! She plans on filling baskets and having them ready during tourist season as well. You will be able to find these in the skate shop. The Forks community always has been generous. Simple ways to help out Wilderness Creative can be as easy as a donation, in store or online at All cash donations will go toward shop rent and supplies. If you don’t have the money to donate, consider giving healthy snacks for the youths at the skate park or for an afternoon barbecue skate session, art supplies, shoes, plain T-shirts, anything can be donated and put to good use. Herberg and the other amazing people at Wilderness Creative are so excited for the future of the shop and mentoring local youngsters. They can’t wait to see it unfold and grow. These people are incredibly inviting and have so much to give. Stop in and see them. Contact Herberg at the shop, at 360-640-0571 or the Wilderness Creative website.

Naomi Cowles Griffin grew up at Shuwah, surrounded by animals on her families farm, and she has written a book about those experiences. In her book “Farm Girl’s Champion� she writes about her longing to have her own dog that she could train and show at 4-H. She wanted a companion who would run in the fields and explore the creek and go rollerblading with her. Then one day the director of the local 4-H club announced that her Australian shepherd had had puppies, two boys and one girl. When she saw the puppies, Naomi immediately fell in love with the little girl puppy that looked like a collie. She was brown with white paws, muzzle and collar. Griffin now lives in Moscow, Idaho. Her book is available for download on EBOOK or in print from websites like Amazon. com Read all about the adventures of Naomi, Lucky and her other pets in “A Farm Girl’s Champion.�
