FINDING THE PERFECT TREE By Peninsula Daily News Finding the perfect Christmas tree is a holiday tradition the entire family can participate in. Selecting a tree to oversee the season is often one of the ways families start their holiday season. Whether you go to an area tree farm, stop by a temporary tree stand in a parking lot or venture into the forest, finding a tree that suits your needs is essential. For hardy Peninsula residents choosing to cut a tree on Olympic National Forest lands, here are a few things you need to know: • U-cut Christmas tree permits are available from Olympic National Forest for $5 each starting in November. • Permits may be purchased at any Olympic National Forest office. • Credit cards are now accepted, as well as cash and checks. • Permits are valid only in specified areas. Maps and information about cutting areas will be provided with each permit sale. • Douglas fir is the most abundant and popular Christmas tree species found in the forest.


• Pacific silver fir may be found along ridge tops at higher elevations but accessibility depends on snow and road conditions.

Tree-cutting permits can be purchased at the following local locations:

• Forks Visitor Information Center, 437 Tillicum Lane in Forks, 360-374-6522 • Hood Canal Ranger District Office, 295142 U.S. Highway 101 in Quilcene, 360-765-2200 • Hoodsport Visitor Information Center, 150 Lake Cushman Road in Hoodsport, 360-877-2021 • Olympic National Forest Supervisor’s Office, 1835 Black Lake Blvd. SW in Olympia, 360-956-2402 • Pacific Ranger District Office, 353 South Shore Road in Quinault, 360-288-2525 Phone for office hours, permit availability and current road and weather conditions. Mail-order permits are available from the Olympia, Quilcene and Quinault offices. For more information, visit olympic/passes-permits/forestproducts.

Permit information

• Cut one tree per permit. • A maximum of five permits are available to a household. • Permits are not refundable. • Tree cutting is prohibited in wilderness areas, developed campgrounds, administrative sites, within 300 feet of streams, on private or stateowned lands within national forest boundaries and in other posted areas.

Peninsula Daily News & Sequim Gazette

• Olympic National Forest Christmas tree permits are not valid on other land ownerships. • Cutting on private land is subject to trespass action. • Every fourth-grader can receive a free Christmas tree cutting permit through Olympic National Forest’s Every Kid in a Park Initiative. The initiative offers one free holiday tree permit to youth that have a valid “Fourth Grade Interagency Pass.” These free permits are only available at U.S. Forest Service district offices.

Safety tips

• Let someone know where you are going and when to expect you back. • Be prepared for cold and changing winter weather conditions. • Carry tire chains, a shovel, flashlights and a blanket in your vehicle. • Bring extra food, water and hot beverages. • Arrive at your cutting area early to avoid traveling in the dark. • Wear proper winter clothing and carry extra clothing in case you get wet. • Most National Forest roads are not maintained or plowed during the winter. • Four-wheel drive vehicles are recommended.

Time to decorate

Once the tree is cut and safely placed in a tree stand gather your family and friends, play some holiday music and whip up a batch of hot cocoa to create a great holiday memory by decorating for the season.

STORIES from page 9 “There were eight kids in our family, so Daddy and Mother had to buy all year long. On Christmas Eve Daddy loaded us up in the car and we looked at Christmas lights and decorations for a while, then ended up at our Uncle Bill’s house where we viewed the latest aluminum tree. Aunt Marie made us all hot chocolate while Santa visited our house. My mom would then call to say she was ready and we’d head for home. Mother would greet us at door yelling for Santa to hurry and leave. All our gifts were sectioned so that our main gifts — such as a new bike for me one year — were centered in the group of gifts. All gifts were opened on Christmas Eve, then we attended midnight mass.”

Thank you for shopping locally on this Small Business Saturday #ShopSmall

“Here’s a tradition that my family always did growing up (and still does, whenever we are together for Christmas). It’s a Polish Christmas Eve tradition and also has roots in Catholicism. Even though I’m not religious, I like the message of this tradition, so I still practice and share it with friends. We use an “opłatek” — a Christmas wafer — which is a thin, unleavened wafer made of wheat flour and water. It is identical in composition to the altar bread consumed during Catholic mass. Before dinner, family and friends gather around the table and divide the opłatek between them. Then we each make the rounds to our family members: We break off small pieces of the wafer they are holding while expressing our wishes for them in the coming year. For example, I might wish my grandmother health and happiness; for my younger cousin I might express my wish that he keep good friends and do well in school. Once we share our wishes for that family member, we eat the opłatek that we broke off from their piece, ceremonially sealing in those wishes. Then our family member expresses their wishes for us, and we move on and pair up with the next person. Sharing opłatki (the plural) is a meaningful way to reflect and take a moment to be present with each of our loved ones during the holidays.”

—Kasia Kawczynski of Port Angeles

The many benefits of buying local this holiday season SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL

by Peninsula Daily News and Metro Holiday shopping dominates many people’s free time between the day after Thanksgiving and the final days before Christmas. While many people might shop till they drop on Black Friday, this day only accounts for a relatively small amount of the hundreds of billions of dollars that are spent each holiday season. Shoppers now have a bevy of options at their disposal as they embark on the holiday shopping season.

an economics and strategics planning firm, found that independent, locallyowned retailers return a greater percentage of their revenue into their local economies than national chain stores. The study showed independent, locally owned businesses on average recirculated 51.1 percent of revenue into the local economy, while national chains recirculated less than 14 percent.

Two Big Days of Savings!

Give a gift that’s always the right size!


Traditional in-store retailers are still around, and online shopping continues to grow in popularity with each holiday season. But many holiday shoppers are looking to buy local this holiday season, and such a decision can pay a host of dividends for both shoppers and the communities they call home.


Calendar from page 14


Similar results were discovered in a variety of cities, indicating that buying local not only benefits local business owners but also the communities those owners and their customers call home. “About 80 cents of every dollar spent locally stays local, supporting everything in our community that we all hold important and dear — from sports and music programs, to better roads, first responder services, medical facilities, libraries and education,” said Marc Abshire, executive director of the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce. “The opposite is true, of course: 100 percent of every dollar spent online or in another community, state or country will stay exactly out there and result in zero benefit to Port Angeles. “Every time you make a retail purchase, somebody benefits. Wouldn’t it be better to spend your dollars in ways that benefit your own community, not just because it feels better but because your purchase means you are also benefiting your own community”

One of the biggest ways local business owners recirculated their revenue in the local economy is job creation. While national chains also create jobs, such jobs only benefit a community if the chains are located within your community. If a mall or shopping center is a considerable drive away, chances are the chains within the mall or center are not employing your fellow community members. Local businesses in your community are more likely to employ residents of your town. “Your local businesses are owned and managed by your neighbors — people who share and enjoy your community with you in many ways,” Abshire said. “Let’s all support ourselves and our neighbors by shopping local.”

SHOPPING LOCAL MAY PROVIDE ACCESS TO MORE UNIQUE GIFTS In addition to the economic benefits of buying local, shoppers might find that merchandise made by local

craftsmen is more unique than massproduced items found on the shelves of national retailers. “Port Townsend has holiday shopping covered. There are thousands of great gifts available in the historic districts — uptown and downtown,” said Mari F. Mullen, executive director of the Port Townsend Main Street Program. “Individually owned businesses offer the personal touch and are a welcome contrast to anonymous malls or online buying. Gifts purchased from destination stores, restaurant gift certificates, movie passes, theater tickets, nonprofit event tickets and local artwork are examples of thoughtful gifts loved ones will remember long after the holidays.” Recipients may cherish more unique items that they cannot find on their own, and that appreciation might even spur them to visit more local retailers after the holiday season has come and gone, benefiting their own communities. “We are encouraging customers and merchants to post pictures of locally purchased gifts on social media using

the hashtag #FoundInTown. Details on holiday events at,” Mullen said. “The holiday season is one of the most important times of the year for local merchants so they can finish out the year on a successful note.”


Buying from national chains has its advantages, but customer service is not always one of them. Should your loved ones encounter problems with their gift that require assistance, they might be forced to wait on the phone for extended periods as they and thousands of others wait for customer service representatives to answer their calls. Local businesses do not deal with nearly the volume of customers as national retailers and, therefore, are capable of addressing concerns more quickly and personally than large chains. Buying local not only benefits small business owners, but also pays dividends for their customers and the communities they call home.

‘HAND UP, NOT A HANDOUT’ by Peninsula Daily News Sometimes it’s the little things that loom the largest. Your budget’s tight but you’re making it — barely — and then a sudden car repair leaves you short on the rent. You’re proud of making your available cash stretch

to cover school clothes and supplies for your children — and then one loses the glasses that are essential for him to read and keep up with schoolwork. You got that job — but now you lack appropriate work clothes or a bus pass to get to work. What do you do? On the Olympic Peninsula, generous residents create a safety net for their neighbors, donating what they can to the Peninsula Daily News’ “hand up, not a handout” Peninsula Home Fund.
