The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office will be on the lookout for drunk and impaired boaters The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting heightened enforcement targeting boating under the influence as part of the national Operation Dry Water campaign. Law enforcement will be focused on educating boaters about safe boating practices, which includes boating sober and enforcing the state’s boating under the influence laws. With the summer boating season underway, and the July 4th holiday approaching, the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office reminds boaters that impaired boating is against the law. Operating a vessel under the influence of alcohol or drugs is illegal on all bodies of water and can lead to serious injuries and consequences. In Washington, it is illegal to

operate a vessel with a BAC level of .08 or higher - the same as it is to operate a vehicle. “The accidents and tragedies that happen because individuals chose to drive drunk or impaired, on land or on the water, are preventable. The decision lies with the individual on whether they chose to operate a boat or vehicle while under the influence, says Sheriff Bill Benedict. “As law enforcement, it is our job to do all we can to ensure the safety of our recreational boaters and paddlers. That is why the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office is joining other states and agencies across the country to do our part in keeping boaters safe and preventing accidents related to boating under the influence.” Alcohol is the leading contributing factor in recreational

boating deaths and a major contributor to accidents*. The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office encourages boaters to enjoy the boating season to its full extent by boating sober, wearing a life jacket, and taking a boating education course. The national Operation Dry Water weekend will take place July 5-7. The mission of Operation Dry Water is to reduce the number of alcohol- and drugrelated accidents and fatalities through increased recreational boater awareness and by fostering a stronger and more visible deterrent to alcohol use on the water. Visit for more information about boating under the influence. *2017 U.S. Coast Guard Recreational Boating Statistics.

It shall be unlawful for any person to sell, possess, use or explode any dangerous fireworks within the city of Forks. Any item of fireworks which does not bear a “safe and sane” registration or classification of the State Fire Marshal…shall be deemed dangerous and is prohibited by this chapter.”

Clallam County Burn Restrictions will take effect July 1, 2019, and run through October 1, 2019, unless conditions warrant an earlier closure. The Burn Restriction applies to all outdoor burning except recreational fires used for pleasure, religious, ceremonial, warmth, cooking or similar purposes. Recreational fires are permitted unless further banned by extreme weather conditions. Note: Recreational fires are limited to 3-feet in diameter and 2-feet in height. Fires for debris disposal are not legal under any circumstances and are not considered recreational. If conditions arise the restrictions may be upgraded to a HIGH FIRE DANGER, this will prohibit all outdoor burning which includes recreational fires.

firework-related grass and structure fires in Clallam County. I urge those who still choose to discharge consumer fireworks in spite of the danger they present to use the utmost caution. Remember that you are responsible (civilly and possibly criminally) for the damage or fires caused by your fireworks- even if they are legal. Legal fireworks in Washington State are known as “consumer fireworks”. Legal Consumer Fireworks do not include things like firecrackers, bottle rockets, and missiles. These illegal fireworks cause traumatic injuries and are prone to starting fires. Items like M-80’s and larger, Cherry Bombs, and Tennis Ball Bombs ARE NOT FIREWORKS. These “fireworks” are actually explosives and are powerful enough to cause life-altering injuries or even death. There are over 1000 emergencies every year in Washington State caused by fireworks. This year, hours for fireworks in the county areas are: June 28 - 12 p.m. to 11 p.m.


It looks like we are in for another dry summer, although not as bad as four years ago. Nonetheless, irresponsible or careless use of fireworks over the 4th of July could lead to catastrophic wildfires that stretch our abilities to fight on the Olympic Peninsula. I urge everyone to exercise extreme caution using legal fireworks and completely forgo the use of illegal pyrotechnic fireworks. In general, anything that explodes is illegal. Legal pyrotechnic fireworks are those that involve an open flame to light or have any material in them that burns. Sparklers, while legal, produce a shower of sparks that can easily ignite dry grass or brush that can rapidly get out of control. Roman candle devices (some of which are legal) basically produce a stream of flaming embers that can also easily ignite dry vegetation. Bottle rockets (all of which are illegal) launch small flaming firecrackers varying distances which then detonate. The detonation can easily start a fire; in fact bottle rockets have been responsible for most

We have so much cancer because of the roadside spraying of the herbicide Glyphosate.

Noise Comment

To those who say “Sound of Freedom” when the growler jets fly over, that is your right and it is fine that you believe so. To call others who prefer the peace and quiet our area used to be known for ‘losers’, or worse yet, ‘communists’, shame on you. The many people who seek and want peaceful skies that do not remind them of war are military vets, active military, moms, dads, kids, and the tourists who bring many dollars to our area. These people are not anti-military, they are anti excessive noise, plain and simple. *********************

Visitor Gripe Dear People of Forks, We are visiting Forks from Minnesota and think you have a bit of heaven here. We have been here for two days and can’t say enough about the beauty we see. This came to a halt yesterday when I was driving through Forks at a reasonable speed I thought. All at once a red pick-up pulled in front of us, stopped and a man got out. He came over to our vehicle and proceeded to rant and scream for what seemed to me a very long time about holding up traffic by driving so slow. The rage this man displayed was disturbing. Everyone we had encountered until now had been friendly. This morning I can’t get this man’s anger out of my mind. Thank you for your beautiful state but not sure we will be back to Forks.

Commentary Forks Old Fashioned 4th of July Parade Honorees 2019 Hometown Hero This 4th of July Veteran Paul Hampton will ride aboard the Forks Old Fashioned 4th of July float in the Grand Parade, Thursday at noon. Paul and his wife Elsie came to Forks from Florida in 1977 for Paul’s job with the Department of Natural Resources. During his time at the DNR Paul worked with Correction Center crews and as assistant Superintendent at Olympic Corrections Center. He later became Protection Forester and retired from the DNR after 28 years, although he says he is still on call and fills in when needed. Paul enlisted in the Navy in 1964 and saw active duty in Vietnam in 1966 - 1967. Paul and Elsie were married only four days when he got shipped out, Paul said, “When you are married, your spouse is in the military too!” The Hamptons have three children. In addition to filling in at the DNR Paul serves on the board of directors for Sarge’s Place, he also helps make the Veteran’s Stand Down happen each May in Forks. Paul helps with set-up, take down and will provide veterans a ride to the event if they need it. Paul has been through all the chairs for the Forks Elks three times! One of the programs dear to his heart is the Elks Children’s Therapy program. He also helps out with general projects at the Forks Elks Lodge; the day I talked to him he was helping to install new lighting at the Lodge on Merchant Rd.

The Decker roots go way back on the West End. Guy’s great-grandfather, Guy the first, served with a rescue crew out of Neah Bay in the early 1900s, pre-Coast Guard! Guy spent some of his growing-up years in Clearwater before coming to Forks. Betty’s family came to the West End for work and her father was employed by Bloedel Donovan near Clallam Bay. She later attended school at Beaver. Betty and Guy met when Betty needed a ride home from a dance at the Grange that was located on the Quillayute Prairie. “I wasn’t going home with the guy I went to the dance with,” Betty said. “I saw Guy and he gave me a ride, home, we have been together ever since.” The Deckers were married in 1958 at the Forks Congregational Church. They have three children; Guy, Peggy and Bill, and according to Betty lots of other kids spent time at their home over the years. Guy worked as a log truck driver and an opportunity arose to purchase the Forks Builder’s Supply and Guy left truck driving for the store. After closing the business the Deckers moved to Montana; health issues for Betty brought them back to Forks a few years ago; Betty is happy to be back … Guy … sometimes not as much, but the lower rainfall this year has been a good thing as far as he is concerned. The Deckers’ favorite 4th of July memory is family outings to their cabin on the river.

Grand Marshals Guy and Betty Decker will be honored this year as Grand Marshals in the Forks Old Fashioned 4th of July parade.

West End Historical Society Pioneer It has taken several years to convince her but Gladys Allen finally agreed to be honored

in this years’ parade as the WEHS Pioneer. Gladys has lived her entire life in Forks. The Nelson family came to Forks for her fathers’ work in the timber industry as a busheler. Gladys was married to Gordy Allen for 66 years, he passed 6 years ago. Gladys has three children that also live on the West End; Cheryl, Randy, and Bruce. Gladys says she loves living in Forks, and as far as historical stuff she said, “I like anything that has to do with the history of our community.” She also complimented the Forks Old Fashioned 4th, “I really enjoy the Veteran honored each time on the float, and they do it all over the Peninsula too!” adding “Our country needs more of that.” Christi Baron, Editor

precipitation outlooks continue to indicate warm, dry conditions extending through the summer season. This had led to above normal potential for significant fire activity. Federal land managers are monitoring the situation closely and are prepared for an active fire season. There has been close communication and coordination with federal, state, and local resources to ensure prompt response to any reported fires. If conditions continue to worsen, some level of fire restrictions will most likely be implemented. The purpose is to reduce the ignition potential during periods of high fire danger. These restrictions are coordinated amongst land managers to ensure clear communication to park and forest visitors. The public is urged to be aware of the increasing fire danger and take precautions to ensure fire safety. Visitors to national parks and forests should always use caution to prevent human-caused wildfires. To reduce the risk, please consider the following: · Fireworks are prohibited on federal public lands. · Before going camping, learn of any fire restrictions in place and never leave a campfire unattended. Ensure campfires are completely out before leaving the camping area. · If smoking, always dispose of cigarette debris in some type of ashtray. To report a fire dial 911. Updated fire danger and fire information will be posted on the park and forest websites.

Charter Review Commission hopefuls speak in Forks By Jesse Major

Olympic Peninsula News Group

Candidates for the District 3 positions on the 15-person Charter Review Commission participated in a League of Women Voters forum in Forks last Tuesday, with some candidates proposing issues that the commission should consider while others said amendment suggestions should come from the people. The top five people from each of the county’s three districts will be elected during the November general election to propose amendments to the Clallam County Charter. Voters would then vote on any proposed amendments. Attending Those who attended the forum Tuesday included Brian Hunter, Kenneth Reandeau, Rod Fleck, Nina Sarmiento, Therese “Tree” Stokan and Andrew May. Candidates Lisa Unger,


Joseph Murray, and Deborah Cooke sent surrogates in their place. Mike French and Don Corson did not attend or send surrogates. Clallam County is one of a handful of charter counties in the state, which allows it to operate differently than counties like Jefferson County, which does not have a charter. Two examples of differences are that Clallam County’s charter allows it to have the only elected Director of the Department of Community Development and, unlike many other counties, the Superior Court Clerk is appointed. The charter also makes it so that county commissioners are elected only by the voters in the district in which they are running. Reandeau said his two biggest areas of interest include the county’s transition to developing a Finance Department and the autonomy department heads, particularly

with the Department of Community Development. “What I see in the charter, it speaks to an administrative assistant, but it does not speak to a finance department or a CFO so much,” he said. Reandeau said he wants to look closer at the county hiring a third-party in Oregon to review a permit application for a proposed bed and breakfast. The developer, Judy Lee, sued the county and DCD Director Mary Ellen Winborn when Winborn determined the proposed building was actually a hotel and could not be built on property Lee purchased. Lee and the county entered into mediation Monday. Hunter said he has a list of issues he is interested in, but spoke mostly of trust lands and process. “I’m not sure from reading the charter itself how much detail you get into,” he said. “I want to make sure there’s

an understanding of how that process works.” Stokan said the top issue she would like to see addressed is potable water in the county and also look for ways to ban smart meters and 5G technology. She said there are health and safety concerns with smart meters and 5G. “I want you to remember that years ago when the tobacco companies were trying to tell us there was no harm, this is very reminiscent of that,” Stokan said. Stokan said she is also committed to seeing representation from all of the county’s tribes at the county. “I live in Neah Bay, I work in Port Angeles, but I’m very aware of the perspective of Native Americans and this is long overdue,” Stokan said. Rod Fleck, Forks city attorney and who has served on the commission in the past, said he doesn’t have any spe-

cific issues that he wants the Charter Review Commission to consider, but that he wants to hear from citizens. “The amendment process to the charter should be driven by the public saying … versus the commissioners saying “I want to write the charter in my own image,’” Fleck said. Fleck said he is less interested in the commission proposing amendments on issues citizens have already voted on, such as whether the DCD director should be an elected position He said it would not be appropriate to ask voters to reconsider measures they have already decided on. “I suspect we will hear people talk about the DCD director and we will hear people talk about changing the way county commissioners are elected back to the former system,” he said. “The voters made their decisions so our job is to empower that.” May, of Port Angeles, said he is interested in canvassing the district to see if there are popular views on changes. “It is our job not to have our individual agendas and to speak for our district,” May said. “That’s not to say, certainly I’ll vote one way or another if these issues make it in front of us, but now I’m interested in finding out if there are issues unique to this district or in common with the other districts.” May said he anticipates hearing about new technology, water and climate change. He expects to see “housekeeping” measures as well. Sarmiento, of Port Angeles, described her candidacy as her introduction into politics and said she is interested in hearing what people have to say. She said she wants to look for opportunities to be proactive in mitigating climate change. She said she is interested in learning more about trust lands and water supplies. “These are all things I hope to create conversations about in the future.” Reporter Jesse Major can be reached at 360-452-2345, ext. 56250, or at jmajor@ Editors Note: Andrew May writes a gardening column for the Peninsula Daily News.

Officials discuss drought on West End By Jesse Major

Olympic Peninsula News Group

Officials on the West End are watching water levels after experiencing the second-driest spring on record and as West End rivers near or break record lows. Forks City Attorney Rod Fleck said city officials are keeping a close eye on the city’s wells before issuing mandatory water use restrictions. “We’re watching it very carefully,” Fleck said. “We’ve had one of the driest springs in our historic record, and we put in voluntary conservation measures a couple weeks ago.” Fleck said that today, officials are expected to check the wells, which have been losing about a foot of water per week, and that he expects a decision on mandatory conservation measures to be made within the coming weeks. “It’s a decision that’s made by the mayor in consultation with the public works director and his staff,” Fleck said. Forks residents already have been asked to avoid watering lawns, limit washing vehicles and to be conscious of water use during daily tasks. The state Department of Ecology released a map Thursday showing that Tuesday the West End — which includes both Clallam and Jefferson counties — was facing a “severe drought” while East Clallam and East Jefferson counties were facing a “moderate drought.” There are two levels of drought beyond “severe drought.” Last Tuesday, the Hoh River hit a record low of 770 cubic feet per second (cfs), breaking the 2015 record of 792 cfs. That river usually flows at about 1,900 cfs this time of year. Last Thursday, flows in the Calawah River were as low as 93.6 cfs, well under the median flow of 229 cfs. The lowest flow the river has seen on June 27 was in 2015, when flows on that day were as low as 83 cfs. On Tuesday, flows dropped below 80 cfs. Rivers in central Clallam County were still about double the record low flows set in 2015. “The little rain that we’re getting knocks down the dust and provides some water for grass to grow a little, but it’s not addressing the reduction in our groundwater system,” Fleck said. Fleck and other West End officials met with state Department of Ecology officials Tuesday to discuss the drought and how the state might help. During his presentation, Mike Gallagher of Ecology’s Water Resources Program frequently

compared this year’s drought to 2015, when the state experienced record low snowpack that was caused by higher-than normal temperatures during the winter. Gov. Jay Inslee issued an emergency drought declaration in April and on May 20 he expanded that declaration to include 27 watersheds, including the entire Olympic Peninsula. Gallagher said May was the ninth warmest in Washington since 1895, that 71 percent of rivers are flowing below normal levels and that the Olympic Coast experienced the second driest spring since 1895. “We had an abnormally warm May,” Gallagher said. He said that although snowpack isn’t nearly as low as it was in 2015 when it was less than 20 percent of average, it is still lower than it was in 2016, 2017 and 2018. He said Ecology is responsible

for leading the drought response, including aiding state agriculture, protecting public water supplies, safeguarding fish and boosting stream flows, maintaining critical energy supplies and preparing to fight wildfires. This month, Ecology began accepting grant applications for projects that benefit areas impacted by drought. The state has $2 million available and grants are capped at $350,000 and require a 50 percent match. Fleck said the city is working on a grant application in hopes of getting help to fund drilling another well for the city, which would be deeper than the existing wells. He said following the 2015 drought the city purchased property for the project but hasn’t gone through the process yet. He estimated that reports and permitting would cost around $30,000, but Fleck said he was unsure of the cost to complete

“We have an ordinance on bulk water sale that leaves it up to the mayor,” Fleck said. “If we’re going to start working through that, there’s costs. Is Ecology helping to offset those costs?” Reporter Jesse Major can be reached at 360-452-2345, ext. 56250, or at

OCC’s Parenting Inside out Class

The month of June always sees a flurry of graduation ceremonies. Olympic Corrections Center is no exception as classes come to a close, the final days will give way to summer academic breaks and a chance to engage in more programming until school starts once again. Olympics Parenting Inside Out

Program is a source of pride for the students and the coach of the program, Psychology Associate Harold Curtis. Every June the Parenting Inside Out Program concludes with a graduation ceremony for the dedicated fathers who committed to the 60 hours of course work to break patterns of incarceration not

just for themselves, but for their children. The graduation was a source of pride to the fathers who also planned the ceremony and participated by speaking to their class and guests. One graduate even wrote and performed his music. This year was the biggest graduating class so far.

Patient and Family Advisory Council The Forks Community Hospital Patient and Family Advisory Council is dedicated to enhancing health care for all. Our mission is to make recommendations directly related to safety and quality care for all patients.

Call Kelly Thompson for more Information

Forks Community Hospital Patient and Family Advisory Council Plan It is the goal of Forks Community Hospital to create a Patient and Family Advisory Council to improve our patient experiences and the overall safety and quality for Forks Community Hospital patients. This group will consist of hospital leadership staff and community members who have either been a patient themselves or have had a close family member as a patient.

There were 13 out of 15 fathers enrolled in the course that graduated. The standards are set high for those parents who enroll, but this year, as in the prior years, each father stepped up to the challenge. About halfway through the class, a teddy bear was assigned to each father. They were to stay with the bear throughout the class and in their daily interactions as if it were a child. At the ceremony, the fathers were able to present the bear to their families as a sign of success. Now the dads have a full toolbox of new and useful skills in parenting to make impactful changes in their families’ lives. Parenting Inside Out (PIO) is an evidence-based, cognitivebehavioral parent management skills training program created for incarcerated parents through a six-year collaboration of scientists, policymakers, practitioners, and instructional designers. Both the information in the program and the way that information is presented were informed by knowledge derived from research and practice.

What last year’s members have to say: Author Bill Lindstrom will sell and sign copies of his newest book Strait Press at the Timber Museum in Forks on Friday, July 5, from 3-5 p.m.




“As a member of the Patient and Family Advisory Committee I have come to realize how impactful Federal, State, and Insurance regulations have controlled patient care at the hospital and clinic. Compliance of these regulations has a tremendous financial cost associated with them. Health care is controlled by these agencies and providers and patients have little say in the outcome.”

“In working with this committee, I have seen the constant struggle the hospital board has not only to recruit but keep providers for our community. This remains to be a number one goal.”

“I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the committee and have learned a lot about various aspects of the operations. I would look forward to being able to continue being apart of the committee.”

A HOME IN FORKS WA By Tom Groenewal JANUARY 19, 1992 An unusual sunny day, calm winds with the usual temperatures in the 50s. I head south past the Hoh River and the Kalaloch beaches, south to Lake Quinault. I find the trailhead to Higley Peak on the north side of the lake. The easy trail leads much of the way up the mountain until the last rougher .5 mile goes to the top. The place is exhilarating. With the elevation over several thousand feet the forest is more open, thinned out, and drier than the wet forests below. Huge Douglas Fir

dominate the scene, some six feet in diameter and towering straight up into the sky. I put my head along a tree and aim my eyes up along the bark and follow the trunk for 100 feet till the first branch. The top of Higley Peak is covered in trees 30 feet tall except for the south side where a WW II radar tower is located. I find a rock outcrop on the east side and have a perfect view. To the northeast is the inner core of Olympic Mountains, west to east: Mt. Tom, Middle Peak, Mt. Olympus, East Peak, and Mt. Mathias. To the southeast are scattered snowcapped peaks extending for twenty-five miles. To the

south, after a short sloping valley area the rugged peaks of Colonel Bob Wilderness, a 20 sq. mile area with only one trail traversing the mountains. I climb back to lower levels and find another trailhead for a loop trail. The trail system is part of a series of trails leading from a campground near the lake and up into the forest. The forest is filled with enormous Sitka Spruce, Douglas Fir, Western Hemlock, and Western Red Cedar. I hike a diverse loop through upland forest, a cedar swamp, rocky outcrops and waterfall crashing into the stream bottom before flowing out to the shore of Lake Quinault. The trails are magnificent. On the way home I stop at one of the Kalaloch beaches

to hike out onto a wide beach left exposed by a minus 1.0-foot tide. Here the beach drops quickly in the littoral zone (between high and low tide) and sandy flats extend 200 yards out into the ocean. Razor clams are supposed to be found here in these beaches of fine sand and silt. Tell-tale shells lay scattered around confirming the story that the clams are here. I walk out as far as I can, following the receding waves and go out further and further until I see a high cycle of waves building just offshore. Even though these waves will only be a few inches high by the time they reach me I start to run because even a wave several inches high on these sloping flats means the small

Freedom of Petition and Freedom of Assembly are being restricted by untenable laws generated by ultra-conservatives. A free country will never demand its citizens pledge their allegiance at meetings, or its children daily in schools. A free country will never demand its citizens recite prayers in public meetings, schools, or other public, non-theistic events. A free country will never demand its national anthem be conducted at every sporting event, every school graduation, or every political gathering. Once a country’s citizens start demanding these actions, they have taken away everyone else’s freedoms. And that, fellow citizens, is how fascism kills a nation. David Youngberg

wave can travel 200 yards speeding to shore. I run all the way back up the beach to escape the small wave which has spread across the entire flat pushing foam and debris. The waves recede and the flats are again exposed until the next wave. Gradually, the tide goes out further and the waves do not have enough energy to push up the flat beach. The beach remains exposed to birds poking around for invertebrates, raccoons looking for clams and eagles looking for a beached fish. All of them are successful, food for everyone. My legs are like rubber from all the hiking today. I head for home to build a fire in the woodstove and make hot soup.
