Editor

Dear Editor, If you drive 35 minutes north or south of Forks, you will find a prison; to the south is Olympic Corrections Center and to the north is Clallam Bay Corrections Center. The two facilities together house nearly 1,300 inmates with crimes ranging from drugs to aggravated murder. I am sure you know at least one person who works as a correctional officer at these facilities, so I am asking you to do a couple of things this holiday season. First, think about the personalities that officer has to interact with every single day. Prisons have become the default mental health institutions for the nation where officers, many times completely alone, must walk in the midst of inmates who are always looking for an opportunity to hurt them or manipulate them. While nearly all of us go about our business day after day on “cruise control,” officers can never let their guard down. Eight to 16 hours of constantly being on guard, one eye over their shoulder, hoping that a riot doesn’t break

out or a fellow officer doesn’t get stabbed or assaulted. They must remain professional to inmates who have “F*&$ Officers” tattooed in plain sight (except that word is not blanked out!), run to the rescue of inmates who are being beaten to death by other inmates, or bust into a cell when an inmate attempts suicide, or throws a “milkshake” (a mixture of urine, feces and blood) on them in the hopes they contract AIDS or hepatitis. Inmates accuse officers of raping them, of beating them, and they bring lawsuits against officers just because they can. Yet still officers remain professional, talk to inmates and try to make a difference. While other professions love it when things are quiet, that’s when an officer has to be the most alert, for it is often the

quiet which signifies something bad is about to happen as inmates who don’t want to be involved retreat to their cells. Officers are the first ones to respond to inmate on inmate rape, aggravated assaults, attempted suicides, fights with homemade weapons and fights involving dozens of offenders. Did you know that I have watched a handful correctional officers rush into the inmate recreation yard where 30 inmates were fighting? These officers carry no weapons but their courage and a duty to respond. Would you do that? While the rest of us get to enjoy the holidays, correctional officers will be required to work extra hours and be especially alert as inmates often act out even more during the holidays; in part because it is so hard being in prison during the

This multiple vehicle accident at the intersection of Calawah Way and Blackberry Avenue happened late Monday afternoon Nov. 23. Multiple ambulances were on scene, but no further details were available. Remember to not only pull over for emergency vehicles, but if you have a flashing light behind you in a non-emergency vehicle, it most likely is someone trying to get to the hospital or the fire hall. PULL OVER. The life they save might be someone you know. Photo Christi Baron

holidays. So they take it out on the officers and they take it out on each other. So, I am asking you: If you know someone who is a correctional officer, please thank them for the work they do. If you are married to a correctional officer, please give them an extra hug and maybe slip an extra present under the tree this year. And may all of us understand the stress they are under and give them a little extra grace. Miles Lawson Forks

Congratulations Sandy Schier Dear Editor, We had the pleasure of operating the Lunsford Real Estate office for over 30 years. It was an amazing experience working for and with some of the best clients and staff on earth. We believe each and every Associate at our office had the best interest of their clients at heart, for that we are most thankful. Sometime back our office was obtained by Lyle and Sandy Schier. We were so excited to see the operation going to someone that believes in and loves our community as much as we do. Sandy has just completed her time requirement and passed her State test as Broker for the firm. We send our congratulations, we are so very proud of you and know you are putting together your team that will serve our community well into the future. Carrol & Ann Lunsford Forks

For over 30 years the Forks Lions Club has arranged for two loads of logs to be hauled from the Olympic Peninsula to the east side of Washington in Quincy. In exchange for the wood, the Quincy Lions Club provides the Forks Lions with produce that is distributed to food banks located in the West End. This transaction is beneficial to each community. The Forks Lions leave on Friday and return on Sunday. On Friday afternoon the donated logs are unloaded in a vacant lot in downtown Quincy. Saturday morning both clubs meet and cut the logs into firewood. The Quincy Lions are able to use the wood as a fundraiser to support community events they sponsor. The remainder of the wood is given to elderly and disabled community members in need. In trade for the firewood, the Forks club members drive to a warehouse where their trucks and trailers are loaded with locally grown produce. The produce consists of apples, beans,

carrots, onions, potatoes and pumpkins. The overwhelming amount of goods brought back to Forks are then dispersed to area food banks. This annual event takes place at the end of October or beginning of November, giving the food banks much needed help in time for the holidays. The communities of Quincy and the West End benefit greatly from this yearly exchange.

Earl Dean Roberts January 25, 1952 - November 20, 2015

Earl Dean Roberts, 63, crossed over into heaven on November 20, 2015 to be with our Heavenly Father. Earl was born on January 25, 1952, to James and Dora Roberts in Grundy, Virginia. When Earl was very young the family moved to the state of Washington, then to California for a number of years, and back to the state of Washington where he remained until his death. Earl worked in shake mills from the age of 16 until he retired, due to health, in his early 50’s. He was a man who loved nature. He loved to fish, hunt, and loved spending time on the beach and hiking in the forest. He was a Seahawks fan. He loved watching old westerns and Star Trek. He loved potluck dinners, especially if there was Pinto beans and cornbread, then he was all smiles. He loved taking his small dogs for walks. He loved spending time with family and friends, visiting and swapping stories and jokes while sipping on a cup of coffee. He was a great big brother. But above all else, he loved the Lord with all his heart. We would like to thank all the doctors and nurses for taking care of our brother. And we would like to especially thank Pastor Bob Schwartz, not only for spiritual counsel, but for being a dedicated friend to Earl at all times. Earl is preceded in death by his parents, wife, and his son and daughter. Also three sisters and one brother. His surviving siblings are Phyllis Greenleaf of Brinnon, Washington, Sharon Weaver of Neilton, Washington, Starlene Metcalf of Aberdeen,Washington, Charles Roberts and Leroy Roberts, both of Forks, Washington; in-laws Becky, Pat, and Dave; and many nephews and nieces. A celebration of life will be held Saturday. December 5, 2015, 1:00 p.m., at Forks Baptist Church, 651 S. Forks Ave, Forks, WA 98331. A potluck fellowship will follow.

THE REAL FORKS

The Gravy Train By Christy Rasmussen-Ford

Even before birth, I knew that I was going to hate cooking Thanksgiving dinner. Therefore, I requested to be born into a family with a grandma who loved cooking as much as she loved spoiling me. My request was granted. For 25 years, my only job on Thanksgiving was to set the table at my gram’s house. I knew that this gravy train couldn’t go on forever though. If I wanted to continue avoiding the actual making of the gravy, I would need to find someone else who was talented at cooking and spoiling me. I searched far and wide for this special person and finally found him in Pittsburgh. My gravy train rolled on and I continued to have no part in cooking on Thanksgiving. Then, to my absolute disgust, a few years ago my husband mentioned something along the lines of me learning how to cook a turkey. It was very hurtful, but I assumed that he meant well and forgave him. At that point though, I knew that I needed to get creative in my turkey dinner avoidance. First, I played the pregnancy card. As my daughter was due to arrive three weeks after Thanksgiving, it was completely believable that I would be too tired, too sore, too miserable and too huge to cook. Never mind the fact that I was still waitressing every day with no problems. The next year, I was pregnant again, but we hadn’t told anyone in the family yet (and hosted them all at our house). The pregnancy card couldn’t be used. I decided to go in another direction and worked late the night before. “Honey, I can’t get up early and cook with you after working so late. I might have a seizure.” Now, a word on the subject of the seizure card; I have never and will never fake seizures or incorrectly use them as an excuse. I feel that doing so is just asking for very bad ju-ju. That being said, if the risk of having a seizure is real, I will milk that cow if need be. There has to be some benefit to having the disorder. Anyway, the late night shift avoidance technique worked so well that I intended on using it again this year. Unfortunately, I ended up being out of work due to an injury. I adjusted my plan accordingly and told my husband, “Looks like I’ll be on crutches this year. I’m sorry that I can’t help!” And I would’ve gotten away with it too … if it weren’t for that meddling doctor. He put my broken foot into a broken foot boot thingy … which allowed me to walk a little. I had a good run, but after 30 years of avoiding it, I finally had to cook dinner this year. As it turns out, it is easier than I thought … catching the oven on fire I mean. Yes, I accidentally (seriously!) caught the oven on fire, filled the entire house with smoke, and almost ruined the whole meal. The good news is that I unintentionally received a lifetime ban on cooking for Turkey Day. For questions, comments, or more tips on (avoiding) cooking on Thanksgiving, e-mail me at christyrasmussen@ yahoo.com.

Kilmer to help kick off series of public meetings On Friday, Dec. 4, Rep. Derek Kilmer will visit Forks to join in the first of a series of public meetings with timber, conservation and local leaders from the Olympic Peninsula Forest Collaborative. The hearing will provide a chance for the Collaborative to engage the public in its efforts. The meeting will take place at Olympic Natural Resources Center in Forks at 11 a.m. Members of the Collaborative will give presentations on the group’s governance structure, stated goals and progress to date. Members of the public will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback to the Collaborative and sign up to receive regular updates on its work. There will be four additional meetings in Grays Harbor, Mason, Jefferson, and Clallam counties during 2016. During a recent visit to Aberdeen with U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, the Collaborative announced a proposed pilot project on the Olympic National Forest. The project will feature forest restoration silvicultural treatments that benefit the ecosystem and provide for additional harvest in the region. This, as in all future Collab-

orative-sponsored projects, will require approval by the Forest Service and other federal agencies. This project will be in compliance with both the Olympic National Forest Plan and the Northwest Forest Plan. The volume produced from this proposed project will be in addition to the United States Forest Service budgeted timber sale outputs for the year. This agreement builds on the successful partnership between the Collaborative and the Olympic National Forest, which so far has accelerated a timber sale in Grays Harbor County earlier this year and is adding capacity to the agency’s annual work plan. This past May in Port Angeles, Kilmer joined regional leaders from the National Forest Service, local governments, the local timber industry and environmental advocacy groups to officially launch the Olympic Peninsula Forest Collaborative. The Collaborative is focused on increasing habitat restoration thinning and aquatic restoration projects under the Northwest Forest Plan on Olympic National Forest that will create economic opportunities on the Olympic Peninsula.

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 editor@forksforum.com; faxed to 374-5739; or dropped off at our office at 44 S. Forks Ave. All letters must have a name, address and telephone number for verification purposes. Only the writer’s name and hometown are printed in the newspaper.

This week the Girls’ Basketball Player of the Week goes to Vee Goodlance. Goodlance is a senior at Forks High School. This is her fourth year playing basketball.

My Journey to Health by Warren Vigill By Jane Hielman “On September 15th this year — all my joints was aching, they were sore. I knew I was taking too much sugar; a lady in Granite Falls spoke to my pain and told me that I needed to make changes. I did. I was too sore.” Warren told me. “That’s when I started drinking warm lemon water in the mornings and a cup of warm water with two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar each day. I cut out all processed foods, my favorite was pizza, donuts and candy bars — I lost my memory for them and energy drinks and pop. They just don’t do it for me, even though I had been doing it since 1998! I have been tobacco free for two weeks now! I gave up alcohol eight years ago; I learned I had to get over the different depression and help myself out. After my 21st drinkin’ I was done. I just knew it was not the right way to go and I saw my parents so hurt. It took four days to recover, no personal injury, just personal growth. When I am stressed, I go work out, lift weights, walk, go for a bike ride, listen to music, it all helps a lot. What makes me happy? Well, being around my family and friends, they respect my changes. I have lost 15 pounds and some of my friends have gotten off sugar because of me, they are noticing a bigger difference. They know they have more energy than they had before; they are stopping processed foods and stuff! I am leading two of my friends to be happier. I am in less trouble now and I really love that. My moods are not so heavy — they are way better now! The Wellness Center in Neah Bay helps quite a lot. I get acupuncture and physical therapy, a massage therapy every two weeks I get the acupuncture. I love the Wellness Center. It is calming; everybody is always in a good mood. Friendly, asking me how I’m doing. That is important. The workers there are respectful! That is one of my biggest things. Respect! Getting away from all that processed food, when I think back on it I know it is EVIL! The body can’t process it! I think I thought I was a garbage can! It changes who you are, messes with the chemicals in your brain and makes you not the same person! I first felt this when I was in fourth or fifth grade, I started looking for food for comfort. I was bullied a lot. Bullying is not a good thing — it

makes you feel down on yourself, it hurts people. Makes you see ‘the top’ of the world that the bully has. It makes you look for inner peace — but while you are being bullied you can’t find it! They take your power! They are all strung out now on drugs. Me? I’m looking up! I’m the winner — I found my inner peace in 2011! The Photosynthesis Festival helped me to do this. There was no pointing of fingers, no one cared how you dressed, how you smelled, everybody was all one.

So now I follow them around. That is where I got my new information. That is how I changed my life! I have pride in being one with myself! I am slowly seeing my life purpose revealing itself. There is a lot more spiritual, helping others. Respect, what I am doing to better myself, more understanding of simplicity. Life is simple! Lot more simple now than when I was drinking energy drinks, pop, cigarettes, getting away from all that brought me back, snapped me back into the real world! I now don’t need drama anymore. I’m over the point where I’m not looking from something new to boost the energy. I now choose my changes! I am happy with me! Going back is not a choice. I know at that point that the past is done!” Congratulations Warren, I am so pleased that you can share your story.

Last week Miles Lawson, Clallam Bay Corrections Center, delivered teddy bears to Nicole Kniep and Amanda Ellis at Forks Abuse. The bears are from a program called “Bears Behind Bars.” Inmates at CBCC sew the bears as a way to give back. The bears will be used to comfort children that are affected by abuse. The bears also are a way to thank Forks Abuse for its support given to inmates that are victims of sexual assault while incarcerated. Lawson said, “Some of these guys will never get out, some have sewing skills and some learn. The inmates also sew other items that are sold and the money goes back in to the program for materials. We also accept donations of material for the program.” Forks Abuse provides shelter, advocacy-based counseling and preventative services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Victims of crime also receive advocacy-based counseling, legal assistance and referrals. For more information about donating material and sewing supplies to the program, call 360-963-3228.

Emily’s Contest By Emily Ehorn Hello Everyone, I know it’s been a very long time since the last time I wrote. I have been trying to, but every time I have something I forget or it’s too late to turn it in. This week I have something I want to talk about. First, I would like to have a contest. Recently, I made a book called “8 Reasons I Should Have a Pet Pig.” The reason why is because I have always wanted a pet pig. So I want you to make a book or poster and give eight reasons why you want __________ (the animal you want). Please turn it into me at school (fourth grade Intermediate School), or the Forks Forum office, 490 S. Forks Ave. The due date is Dec. 18. There will be three winners. The prize is to be able to write a story in my column of this newspaper for a week each. Remember to add your first and last name, phone number and address. Thank you for your time, have a great week.

SPECIES AFFECTED: Returning hatchery fall coho. Location: The Sol Duc River downstream of the hatchery. Reason for action: Coho brood stock needs at the Sol Duc Hatchery have been met and a late push of coho up the Sol Duc River has resulted in surplus hatchery (adipose fin clipped) coho in the Sol Duc River below the hatchery. The Sol Duc is open for trout and steelhead fishing, and this action allows anglers to retain hatchery coho through Dec. 15. On Dec, 16, the regulations will revert to those indicated in the 2015-2016 “Washington Sport Fishing Rules” pamphlet

It’s in the mail

By Christi Baron With the holiday season here, it is the time we think about mailing cards and packages. These days we expect things to get where we want them to go with no problem and pretty fast, even the next day. The first mail service to Forks was on foot and back, from Pysht around Cape Flattery. It was a six-week round trip for the lone carrier. Later on with a trail through Clallam Bay, pack horses were used, fording the rivers and swimming during high water. Packages were limited to four pounds. One time Mr. Ford received a pair of boots in two separate mailings with intervals

Appliances

of several months between each boot. Once many small post offices were prevalent on the West End. Some of the names still are with us but many are long forgotten. Some of the post offices that formerly functioned but were eventually discontinued include places like Shillabaugh, near Burnt Mountain, Old Sappho, near the Guy Lesure home, Shuwah, some distance from the Lake Creek Bridge, Pins on the Hoh River, eight miles up from the mouth, were all discontinued over 100 years ago. Bogachiel, near the site of an old suspension foot bridge, Bucyrus, on Dickey Lake, and Seims-Carey near where the Beaver Post office is today were discontinued in the 19-teens.
