PUD power from Boundary left out of license
BY JANELLE ATYEO OF THE MINER
NEWPORT – When the new license was issued for Boundary Dam last month it came without one major provision that directly affects how much Pend Oreille County residents pay for power. The Pend Oreille Public Utility District has filed for a rehearing with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on the license provision that allows the PUD to purchase 48 megawatts of power from Boundary at the price it costs to produce it. This is the majority of power used by Pend Oreille County residents and is why they enjoy one of the lowest rates in the country. Because the Boundary Project is so much larger than the PUD’s Box Canyon

SANDPOINT – Attorneys representing leaseholders at Priest Lake have filed suit in 1st District Court seeking review of rate increases on leases for state-owned lakefront property at Priest Lake. The average amount of the rate increases over last year is 84 percent. Leases for some properties cost as much as $35,000 annually. All 353 leases at Priest Lake expire at the end of this year, the end of a 10-year lease. The new
project, power costs are lower. “It would have a very significant impact on rates,” said Mark Cauchy, Pend Oreille PUD’s Director of Regulatory and Environmental Affairs. Because the district has agreements in place with Boundary Dam owners Seattle City Light, the 48 MW exchange will continue through the new license – for the next 42 years. “We know there’s going to be different players at the table in the 42 years so we really want to get that thing in writing,” said Curt Knapp, president of the PUD board of commissioners. Cauchy said it’s a pretty unique agreement, something that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission MINER PHOTO|DON GRONNING

leases will be staggered, and be for shorter time periods. The state had the properties appraised and increased the leases in most cases. The annual leases for 2014 range from about $7,200 a year to $35,000, according to the Idaho Department of Lands. The lease money goes into an endowment that is used for education. The land was originally given to the state by the federal government. The lease amount is 4 percent of the appraised value annually. SEE LEASE, 2A

Cast your fishing lines on Saturday Fishing season opens in Washington lakes NEWPORT – Lowland lake fishing season officially opens in Washington Saturday, April 27. Several hundred lowland lakes – stocked with millions of fish – will be open for a six-month season. Fishing in Idaho is open year round, though licenses are required in both states at all times. “The start of the lowland lakes
season is the biggest fishing day of the year,” said Phil Anderson, director of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. “Lakes in every county are wellstocked, so families can keep travel costs down by enjoying good fishing close to home.” To participate, anglers must have a current Washington freshwater fishing license valid through March 31, 2014. Licenses can be purchased online
at https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov; by phone at 1-866-246-9453; or at license dealers across the state. A list of vendors is online. Freshwater fishing licenses cost $29.50 for resident adults 16 to 69 years old. Fifteen-year-olds can buy a license for $10.25, and seniors 70 and older can buy an annual freshwater fishing license for $7.50. Children 14 years of age and younger do not need a fish-
ing license. WDFW fish hatchery crews have been stocking 17 million trout and kokanee in lakes on both sides of the Cascades. Those fish include 2.3 million catchable trout, 160,000 jumbo trout weighing up to 11 pounds apiece, 52,000 triploid trout averaging 1½ pounds apiece, and millions of smaller trout that were stocked last year that have grown to catchable size.
Hard time at the Pend Oreille County Jail Sheriff takes ‘no nonsense’ approach to incarceration BY DON GRONNING OF THE MINER
MINER PHOTO|DON GRONNING
Inmates Jacob Freuh, left, and Shane Johnson display the prepared meals that are served at the Pend Oreille County Jail. Pend Oreille County Sheriff Alan Botzheim has made several changes in the way the jail is operated, including taking away television and serving meals prepared by Washington State Correctional Industries in Airway Heights.
NEWPORT – It’s lunchtime at the Pend Oreille County Jail and inmates Jacob Frueh and Shane Johnson are helping out. They are trustees – inmates who have proven themselves trustworthy to the jailers and are allowed out of their cells to help out with things such as serving meals. It is a break from the monotony of jail time. Prisoners are locked in cells 23 of 24 hours a day. All trustees have been sentenced. Frueh is serving time for driving while license suspended, Johnson for felony eluding.
|| Corps, Kalispels study if dam operations can cool downstream waters OLDTOWN – In an effort to improve water temperature for threatened bull trout and other species, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Kalispel Tribe of Indians are studying the effects of Albeni Falls Dam operations on downstream water temperatures. Corps scientists are evaluating data and refining models for possible operational adjustments. In the future, they may schedule an experimental release of water from the dam at Oldtown, which would occur after Labor Day. A date has not been set and may not occur in 2013. The water temperature study is focused on late summer operations in August and September when river temperatures can be lethal for some aquatic species, particularly bull trout
B R I E F LY
and native westslope cutthroat trout. The study is part of the July 2012 agreement between the tribe, Bonneville Power Administration, Bureau of Reclamation and the corps. While the corps is also working to understand the potential effects of a release of water before Labor Day, there aren’t currently plans to start a summertime release. Changing operations before Labor Day – should it be considered in the future – would require analysis to ensure it meets environmental regulations. The process would also call for additional public input.
County jobless rates down to 13 percent OLYMPIA – It’s still one of the highest in the state, but the Pend Oreille County unemployment rate dropped to 13 percent in March from 14 percent the month before. Ferry County had the highest rate at 14.2 percent. Grays
Prisoners eat meals that are prepared at the prison in Airway Heights. That’s a change. Meals used to be prepared at the jail in Newport. Now they come frozen. On Friday, breakfast consisted of a butterhorn pastry, cereal with powdered milk and applesauce; lunch was sandwiches, chips and a muffin; and dinner was breaded chicken fritters, beans and rice. “Sometimes it seems like the amount of calories is low,” Frueh says. The chicken fritters dinner had 430 calories and breakfast had 540 calories. Jail officials say the diet is approved by a state nutritionist and meets state standards.
Food policy saves money The frozen food is far less expensive than the food that was prepared on site before
Pend Oreille County Sheriff Alan Botzheim ordered the change. The Airway Heights meals cost $1.62 a day per prisoner, instead of the $3.34 a day per prisoner the jail used to pay. There is less food wasted, and it saves the county money – although not as much as Botzheim originally thought, because the number of prisoners has increased from an average of 26 per day to 29. It is still a substantial amount of money. Botzheim says the county saved nearly $10,000 on what it has spent since the first of the year. He says the county spent $20,804 through April 16 on food. Under the old menu, the county would have spent more than $30,000, he said. SEE JAIL, 2A
Harbor was the next highest at 13.1 percent, and Stevens tied Pend Oreille at 13. Spokane County has a rate of 9.1 percent as of March. In Washington, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 7.3 percent, just lower than the nationwide rate of 7.6 percent. County rates are not seasonally adjusted.
Legislators connect with telephone town hall OLYMPIA – Seventh Legislative District residents are encouraged to participate in an upcoming telephone town hall hosted by their legislators: Sen. John Smith and Reps. Shelly Short and Joel Kretz. The hour-long community conversation will take place Tuesday, April 30, at 7 p.m. Individuals wishing to participate should call 1-877-2298493 and enter pin number 15429 when prompted.
Kretz, a 10-year veteran of the House of Representatives, explained the feedback received from constituents during the calls is invaluable. “Telephone town halls offer residents the chance to ask questions, voice their opinions and share their ideas with us – and the best part is that they don’t even have to leave their houses to participate,” Kretz, R-Wauconda. The 7th District team hosted a tele-town hall a few weeks after this year’s legislative session began in January. With the regular session set to adjourn April 28, Short, R-Addy, said this teleforum will give residents a review of the past four months and get their feedback on how they want to be represented. “In order to best represent northeast Washington, we need to hear what’s working and what’s not working,” Short said. “We’ve made some good progress this session, but there is always more work that needs to be done.”

PUD | 48 MW covers general service load FROM PAGE 1
(FERC) doesn’t typically deal with when it is licensing hydro projects. “FERC is trying to make their life simpler,” Knapp said. “You’d hope that if it was in the last license and no one contested it that it would continue on,” Cauchy said. Back before the original Boundary license was issued in 1961, the PUD was looking to build a smaller dam at Z Canyon that would produce 356 MW. The district filed a lawsuit to stop the construction of Boundary, but the Supreme Court sided with Seattle. The agreement to sell the PUD 48 MW of Boundary power at cost was mitigation for that. It addressed a portion of the adverse socio-economic impacts that Pend Oreille County has suffered due to the award of the Boundary license to Seattle City Light, according to a press release from the PUD. The agreement kept the PUD from contesting City Light’s original license. The PUD negotiated new agree-
cost resource.” That 48 MW serves the general service customers in Pend Oreille County – your average household and businesses. It covers the entire load except for some times of peak usage during the winter months. Ponderay Newsprint uses most of the power produced at the PUD’s Box Canyon Dam, located 17 miles upstream from Boundary. Ponderay also uses some power purchased on the market, which is usually at a higher price. Even with the at-cost power from Boundary, rates for PUD customers are expected to increase. With Boundary’s new 42-year license, the cost of power is expected to increase from $5.48 per megawatt hour to $14.20. This summer, PUD rates are expected to go up 2.5 percent. Of that, 1 percent is a reflection of the increasing Boundary power costs. The PUD commissioners will consider a 1.5 percent increase tied to Box Canyon rates. If approved, the charge per kilowatt hour would increase by about a tenth of a cent.
Visiting times, conditions
Visitors are allowed at the county jail three times a week, for no more than a half hour at a time. Visiting hours are 6-8 p.m. Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. Depending on staffing, they may be canceled or shortened. Visitors need to sign up between 4:30-5 p.m. the day of the visit.
They need to show valid government issued identification. Photocopies or expired identification is not accepted. No more than three people at a time can see a prisoner. Visitors are screened for warrants. People with extraditable or Pend Oreille County warrants are arrested. People with non-extra-
ditable warrants are turned away. There is a dress code. Visitors are required to have shoes and proper underwear. No steel toed shoes or boots are allowed. For women, skirts must be mid-thigh length or longer. They will be turned away for inappropriate clothing.
JAIL | State now paying for its prisoners FROM PAGE 1
Botzheim has also instituted other changes that have brought in money. Under previous administrations, the county did not charge the state to house prisoners, he said. Now the state is under contract to pay $75 a day to house state Department of Corrections prisoners. The county also charges the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the U.S. Border Patrol. Botzheim estimates the county has received about $7,000 for housing state prisoners this year. “Before we got nothing,” he said, “and we paid for their medical.” The county also has a contract with the city of Newport to house city prisoners. The city pays salary and benefits for a corrections officer. Botzheim, a lifelong county resident, is a Republican who was elected to his first term as sheriff in 2010. He has worked for the sheriff’s office for more than 20 years. He said he didn’t realize the county wasn’t getting paid for state prisoners when he first took office.
Changing the jail culture The changes at the jail aren’t all about money, though. “We’re trying to change the culture of the jail,” Botzheim says. When Capt. Steve Higgins took over as jail captain in June 2012, the first thing he did was do away with television in jail, which were mainly used to watch videos, since there was no cable television and reception for broadcast TV was poor. Higgins, who spent 21 years working for the Department of Corrections, most of it at the state’s Monroe Correctional Complex, said the televisions were dangerous. “The televisions could be used for weapons,” he said. They could be thrown. They could be dismantled. Prisoners made devices called stingers out of them to heat coffee. The cords could be tripped over, or worse. Some prisoners don’t mind the lack of television. “After you get used to it, you don‘t miss it,” Johnson, the jail trustee, says. Televisions are allowed in state prisons, but they are bolted down

ments for the power when Seattle began their relicensing process and removed a clause requiring that the Boundary Power be available only when all of Box Canyon Power is used in the county. This cleared the way for the PUD to sell the power in the future. The request for rehearing was filed with FERC Friday, April 19. FERC has 30 days to respond, acknowledging the filing and indicating that they will act on it, but the timeline isn’t definite after that. “It leaves it open to take as long as they want,” Cauchy said. While PUD customers are set to get their 48 MW for the next 42 years, omission of the power assignment in future licenses for Boundary will affect the availability of low-cost power for Pend Oreille County. “Our rates are based on getting that Boundary Power because the cost is so much lower than Box Canyon,” Cauchy said. Boundary is a larger project and has more leeway to soak up expenses such as mitigation work, he said. “It’s our lowest
and prisoners pay for them, he said. Botzheim said removing the televisions was a sensible thing to do. “It made no sense that we took their shoelaces and belts but left television cords,” Botzheim said. Prisoners could trip over the cord and sue the county, he said.
More criminal charges now While there have been more assault cases brought against prisoners, Botzheim and Higgins don’t think it is because there are more incidents than before. It’s just that now, they are being reported and charged as crimes. One inmate is facing a felony assault charge for allegedly slapping away the hand of a jailer who was breaking up a fight. Another was recently sentenced for throwing toilet water on a guard. A prisoner was convicted of attacking another prisoner. Charges of fraud were referred to the prosecutor after jailers said an inmate falsely claimed a medical condition to get favorable treatment on meals. “We’re taking a no nonsense approach,” Botzheim said. That is different than before, Botzheim said. There have been altercations before, but now they are being submitted to prosecutors and charges brought. Botzheim says the changes are about safety and accountability. Higgins says when he worked at Monroe, there was zero tolerance for touching a correctional officer. Sentenced prisoners automatically get their sentence reduced by a third for good behavior. Currently there is no procedure to take away good time, as it is called. The state system has a procedure in which the prisoner can contest the allegation that leads to revocation of good time, Higgins says. The county has no such procedure, so nobody gets good time taken away. Instead charges are referred to the prosecutor. The county is working on developing such a procedure.
Medical for prisoners costly In addition to feeding prisoners, the county has to provide and pay for their medical needs.
It is no small consideration. Prosecutors released a prisoner who was gravely ill on his own recognizance after previously holding him on $50,000 bond because they didn’t want the county to foot the bill for his medical costs. Botzheim says the county is talking with the Newport Hospital and Health Services about having a physician or physician’s assistant come to the jail to see prisoners regularly. As it is now, prisoners are taken, one at a time, to the clinic or hospital. For emergencies, an ambulance is called. For routine care, an appointment is made for prisoners. For the fiscal year from July 2011 through June 2012, ambulances were called four times at a cost of $3,084, there were 167 medical appointments costing $8,701 and 35 outpatient hospital visits that cost $10,685. That totals $22,471 for medical costs, taking into account a substantial discount for the medical appointments and hospital visits. Without the discounts, the cost would have been well over $47,000. It would save the jail staff time to have medical people come to the jail, as well as reduce the chance of escape, Higgins says. With 10 corrections officers staffing the jail, the facility is understaffed by two Higgins says. The jail, originally a 14-bed facility, now has a capacity of 31, mostly in two-man cells. There are two six-bed cells and two cells for female prisoners. When there are more than 31 prisoners, or more than four women, the inmates sleep in “boats,” small beds on the floor. Last Friday, there were 28 prisoners in jail. Of these, 16 are pre-trial inmates, 10 are serving sentences and two are Department of Corrections prisoners. They are charged with a variety of offences, ranging from murder and sex crimes to driving on a suspended license and probation violations. Botzheim says that prisoners who haven’t been in the Pend Oreille County Jail before the changes don’t know the difference. “They think this is how jail is,” he said.
THE NEWPORT MINER
Newport chamber board calls for visitor center contractor NEWPORT – With the busy tourist season approaching, the Greater Newport Area Chamber of Commerce board of directors decided last Monday, April 15, to stop directly managing the visitor and information center and called for proposals to contract out the work. Apparently the board has discussed the issue during the past few months because of the amount of work it takes to keep the center open. Chamber President Steve Shumski said some board members wanted completely out of organizing the volunteers and other duties such as distributing information. He said they felt it has been a big part of the problem getting what they want from the paid executive director’s time. They have had three executive directors in the past two years. Shumski said the executive director does nothing but visitor center work from May to September. They work in the office where the visitor center displays and public restrooms are located. The chamber building is located on Pend Oreille County Historical Society property. The building was built with state grants and donations in 1996 by a group of community leaders, including chamber members. An agreement was signed at the time by the chamber – which agreed to operate a visitor center and office in the building – and historical society – which provided the land for $1. It was also designed to provide office space for the county economic development district staff but the department has never used it. Historical Society President

LEASE | Applications to bid come with April 30 deadline FROM PAGE 1
There are cases where the annual lease went down but in most cases they were increases, sometimes dramatically. In one case, the lease was increased nearly $14,000, from a little over $10,000 in 2013 to $24,000 in 2014 on property appraised at $602,000. Denny Christenson, president of the Priest Lake State Lessee’s Association, says the valuations on which the leases are based are fundamentally flawed. “They have so many flaws, they can’t be salvaged,” he says. There are significant factual errors in the appraisals, he says, including pictures of the wrong cabins included some cases. Emily Callihan, spokesperson for the Idaho Department of Lands, says the flaws have to not only be factual, they must affect the value. A wrong picture of the cabin may not affect the value, for instance, she says. It will be up to the Land Board to decide. Christenson says the Priest Lake State Lessee’s Association represents 322 of the 354 lessees and has filed suit in 1st District Court to have judicial review of the state’s rate increase. Lessees have until April 30 to submit an application for the expiring cottage lease sites. “We’ve recommended that lessees file an application,” he said, along with a $250 filing fee. The application is not a commitment to lease but does reserve the right to lease. Callihan isn’t so sure it doesn’t commit the lessee to renew.

Evelyn Reed said they will review the chamber’s new direction for the visitor center at their next regular meeting in May. They have been discussing the intentions of the lease agreement and how they believe the thousands of visitors can best be served. The chamber has yet to find a new executive director to replace Valorie Hein who left the chamber the end of March, and the office remains closed. Hein was the third executive director in two years. She replaced Barry Steward when he resigned in May 2012. He had held the position since February 2012, replacing Krista Dinatale, who started the position in early March 2011. The chamber usually opens the office from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday during winter hours. The hours are extended during the summer and cover weekends. Last year they had maintained the supervision of the visitor center but had the Pend Oreille River Tourism Alliance find and train the volunteer hosts. PORTA has been designated the county tourism organization. Last year, the chamber received $1,000 from the city of Newport’s hotel motel tax collection for the visitor center operations. They also receive $200 a month from the county hotel motel tax collections for visitor center work. In the past, the visitor center has had from 3,000 to 6,000 visitors in a summer season. Shumski said the board feels the

April 30 is also the deadline for people to submit applications to bid on the leases, a process called a conflict auction. If somebody does bid on the lease, an auction will be held later this summer, Christenson said. Callihan says only the people who have applied by April 30 will be allowed to bid. The lease is for the land only. The buildings and other improvements are owned by the leaseholder. If the leaseholder does not renew the lease or does not win the auction, the state can demand the improvements be removed. Another problem, according to Christenson, is that at the height of the market, in 2008-2009, before the recession, the right to lease was traded. Some people paid as much as $500,000 for the right to renew the lease, he said. Currently that right is not worth anything, he maintains. “The game has changed,” he said. An Idaho Supreme Court Ruling last year removed protections the lake site lessees had. Now they must compete with others for the right to lease. So far there has only been one conflict bidder, Callihan says. The state would like to sell or exchange all the land eventually, everyone agrees. Callihan says the number of properties offered for sale or exchange will depend on market conditions. Christenson says the state is only going to sell a dozen properties a year. “That isn’t going to drain the swamp very fast,” he said. He says he knows of three land swaps, two for timberland and one for commercial property.

Prospective fiber customers come with questions
BR I E FLY Huckleberry at Priest Lake development progressing SANDPOINT – Developers of the Huckleberry at Priest Lake planned unit development, located about 15 miles north of Coolin, are seeking to subdivide some parcels into single family residential lots. The development was approved in 1996. Now the Huckleberry Bay Company is asking to subdivide a 165-acre common area lot into nine singlefamily residential lots, plus a smaller common area. The short plat is known as Sandy Shores Ridge. The nine new lots would range from 0.82 to 1.35 acres with a common area planned for the remaining 154 acres. In another request for Cedars at Huckleberry Bay, the company wants to divide a 163-acre parcel into eight family lots between 0.8 and 2.28 acres with about 138 acres remaining. The Bonner County Commissioners will hold a hearing on the two requests Thursday, May 2, at the Panhandle Health District conference room, 322 S. Marion Ave., Sandpoint. The planning and zoning commission recommended approval at its April 4 meeting. The public will have a chance to comment during the hearing. The Sandy Shores hearing will begin at 1:30 p.m. with the Cedars at Huckleberry Bay hearing at 2:15 p.m.
Northern Lights to hold annual meeting SAGLE – Northern Lights Inc., the utility that serves North Idaho, will have its 78th annual meeting Saturday, May 4, at Sagle Elementary School, 550 Sagle Road. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. with the membership meeting at 10 a.m. The purpose of the meeting will be to hear and pass upon reports covering the previous fiscal year and transact such other business as may properly come before the meeting. A $25 energy credit will be awarded to NLI members that register at this year’s Annual Meeting with one credit per voting membership. There will be elections for Director District 7, which includes the Priest River area. Districts 1 and 5 had positions up for election as well, but only one candidate was nominated in those districts, so no election will be held. District 1 includes the Priest Lake area, where Eric Anderson was nominated for the post. District 5 serves the northeast corner of the Panhandle, into Montana. Don Vickaryous was nominated there. Ten Northern Lights scholarships will be presented during the meeting as well.
Three locally sponsored bills on their way to governor’s desk OLYMPIA – April 17 was the final day for the two houses of the Legislature to consider bills approved by the opposite house. Three of the bills sponsored by Seventh District Sen. John Smith, R-Colville, will soon become law after passing unanimously in the House of Representatives. Senate Bill 5806 will repeal an obsolete timber-tax credit – something that Smith says has needed to be done since a change in 2004 made privatelyowned timber exempt from property tax. “No one has used the tax credit since 2007 and I think it is a good practice to get rid of obsolete laws,” he said. Senate Bill 5593 will establish a new deadline to apply for property-tax exemptions, helping county governments to project property-tax revenue collections and streamline their processes. Through a pilot program set up in Senate Bill 5709, Washington State University’s energy program will determine if densified biomass fuel is a viable option as a heating source to reduce schools’ operating expenses.

NEWPORT – The time is nearing for getting fiber to the home service through the Pend Oreille PUD’s new network. The public utility district’s Community Network System division held a Broadband Festival last week, allowing prospective customers to talk with Internet service providers. They came with questions, mainly wondering what it would cost them. The PUD sets wholesale rates – $35 per month for the first year, plus $5 per port for additional services such at IPTV or VOIP phone service. Service providers serve as a middleman and add on overhead costs and profits of their own. Three service providers set up at last week’s Broadband Fest: Concept Cable and POVN have been providing Internet service in the area for years, and iFiber is new in town but not new to the fiber game. Newport-based Exbabylon was also on site to talk about the technical support they offer. Judi Fox of the Diamond Lake area was trying to decide which service provider to go with. She wanted to know if bundling services – Internet, phone and television – would save her money. “We pay too much,” she said of their current service. She was interested mainly in
Internet service, while her husband, John Fox, cares more about TV, she said. Wendy and Ron Banka wanted to know about prices, and Internet speed is important to them too. They live in the Diamond Lake area and use a wireless service, they said. They use the Internet to do their banking, pay bills and send emails, and Ron said he’s tired of waiting 15 minutes for pages to download. POVN’s operations vice president Melanie Jones said most people she talked to wanted to know when service would be available. That all depends on the PUD crews stringing the fiber line. The Sacheen Lake area will be ready first, while Newport and north may take until late summer. During the Broadband Fest, POVN handed out applications for service along with their flyers. Jones is still gathering those up and didn’t have an answer for how many sign-ups they got as a result of the festival. At their booth, they demonstrated Exbabylon’s Smart TV converter and showed how Hulu Plus works for watching TV shows over the Internet. POVN at first wasn’t interested in getting into the IPTV game, but Jones said they’re now talking about partnering with a provider, but it’s not for sure yet. At the festival she said there was a split between people who want IPTV and those who don’t watch TV. The Ephrata-based company,
Knapp named WPUDA president OLYMPIA – Pend Oreille PUD Commissioner Curt Knapp was elected president of the Washington Public Utility Districts Association (WPUDA). He was among PUD commissioners from four public utility districts who assumed top leadership positions for 2013-2014 as elected Thursday, April 18. The new officers include two PUD Commissioners from the west side of the state and two from the east side. Representing the east along with Knapp is Chelan County PUD commissioner Dennie Bolz, who was elected secretary. From the west, Pacific County PUD Commissioner Diana Thompson was elected vice-president, and Lewis County PUD Commissioner Ben Kostick was elected to serve a second term as treasurer. The officers serve on the association’s executive committee and board of directors, providing oversight and recommendations in support of WPUDA’s mission, representing 27 not-for-profit, community-owned public utility districts and one-joint operating agency, Energy Northwest. “My focus this year will be to work with the members of WPUDA to collaboratively promote and protect the interests of our customer-owners and ensure that PUDs continue to have the ability to provide safe, reliable and affordable, not-for-profit services,” Knapp said.

Judi Fox, second from left, talks with PUD administrative assistant Amy Smock, during the broadband festival put on at the PUD’s fiber showroom last week. Fox was there looking at options for bundling services such as Internet, phone and television.
iFiber, has been offering service through the Grant County PUD’s fiber network since 2005. CEO Kelly Ryan said he saw the same excitement last week that he experienced when Grant County was getting ready to launch its network. “Those are the moments you live for,” he said. He said the Broadband Fest gave them a chance to show the community what type of services they provide. He said they took a lot of applications for service, more than they were expecting. He didn’t want to disclose an exact number, but said it was into the hundreds.
They brought eight employees to cover the event, and Ryan said they were all busy talking to prospective customers. He credits the PUD for getting the ratepayers well informed. People came with a lot of great questions, he said. They wanted to know about details such as data caps and when they’ll be able to get hooked up. He said iFiber plans to work closely with the PUD to keep people informed about when their hub is ready for service.

She made an attempt to block their vehicle, but they sped off, driving around her, according to a press release from the sheriff’s office. The woman followed and continued to update dispatch before losing sight of the suspects as they continued to speed through a work zone. With assistance for the Washington State Patrol and the Kalispel Tribal Police,
the deputies located the suspect vehicle and occupants near Flowery Trail Road. Although it was determined they hadn’t entered the woman’s residence, a fuel tank reported stolen from a different site was found in the back of the vehicle, according to the press release. Deputies arrested Justin D. Ackaret, 32, of Deer Park and Charity M. King, 38, of Newport for criminal trespass and possession of stolen property. Ackaret was also charged with reckless endangerment and held on a Department of Corrections warrant for escape.

Internet sales tax necessary evil
ike many of the original Internet fantasies, the idea that it is free is being tossed out as fast as the hulahoop. Although it is a fabulous new communication vehicle, it costs to build and maintain. And more important to realize is the fact that the governments and businesses that rely on income to survive can’t start doing it for free. The most recent change that is needed and on the horizon is sales tax being paid on Internet purchases to the state where the buyer lives. Internet companies have an unfair advantage over local stores now because they don’t have to charge sales tax. And those sales taxes help pay for the services that the buyer depends on. Under a bill that is moving in the Senate, states could force Internet retailers to collect sales taxes. Now states can require only brick and mortar stores to collect sales taxes on online sales, if the store has a physical presence in the state. The bill would allow states to require online retailers to collect state and local sales taxes for purchases made over the Internet. The sales taxes would be sent to the states where buyers live. This won’t kill the Internet but will level the playing field for small businesses that have stores. It will also maintain the needed tax revenue for services without creating new taxes. It should have been the law on the first day of online shopping. Nobody would have thought twice about it. But since it has been a free loophole some are protesting now because they don’t want to start paying taxes again. It isn’t too late to correct this mistake. --FJW

|| The Democrat delusion To the editor: Liberal slaves, I can read one of your first paragraphs and always know you are the great author of such fine delusion and illusions of the reflection of the Great Left Liberal Control Party. What I don’t understand, my good friend and neighbor, is how you can continue to believe in a party that is led by the Great Shim Sham Man himself? Does it not bother you that he looked into the camera and proceeded to outright lie? He lied about Ben-Ghazi. He made fools out of his worshippers and sheep who bought his snake man oil! I know I can trust Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodger, R-Wash. because she has honor, principles and virtues. Patty and Maria, our great U.S. Senators, voted to sign away our very freedoms to the UN. I ask you, my dear friend and neighbor, are you an American first or are you a Democrat first? Until you awaken from this delusion then maybe you will understand the difference between control and protection, until then our country will continue down the path of slave master and slave. We have the slave masters, war mongers and the treasure holders who then treat us as the slaves. Out of “us” we have 113 million taxpayers supporting 202 million people. Out of the 202 million, we have 60 million receiving benefits from the government. We also have 50 million on food stamps. The debt clock says we have 90 million not in the labor force. Now throw in all those huge public retirement packages (80 trillion plus). All those people are slaves out of fear for the check in the mail. We will not solve our issues unless we see the truth in the
reflection of what’s happening to the great home of America! -Donna Lands Newport
Unions need thanks, not blame To the editor: To blame public unions for “Our Great American Home” collapsing is both misguided and exasperating. With very little effort this issue can be researched via either Google or the public library. I agree our country is in financial trouble, but understand that conducting two unfunded off budget wars, tax breaks (predominantly for wealthy), as well as implementing an unpaid for Medicare pharmaceutical program, that was more a gift to Big Pharma than assistance to elderly people, ate at our foundation. Forbes, a financial magazine, reports that large U.S. corporations and extremely wealthy are stashing trillions of dollars in offshore accounts to avoid paying income and payroll taxes to Our Great American Home. These often illegal accounts, valued between 21 and 34 trillion dollars, substantially spreads structural damage to Our Home. Enormous profits in tax avoidance (cheating) to the segment of the U.S. banking industry that facilitates these shady accounts in financially unregulated nations including South Africa, Switzerland and Cayman has rapidly grown. Those entities and individuals who undertake this devious financial method of off shoring profits or wages earned in the United States to avoid paying their fair share of taxes leave small businesses and working class households to pay their tax bill. Thus, placing the blame for our excessive public debt on public employees unions is dishonest.

In recent weeks, North Korea’s leader has threatened a nuclear attack against the U.S. Are North Korea’s threats a real concern this time?
It’s impossible for North Korea to reach the U.S. mainland with its missiles. But we should stand up to protect South Korea if it comes to it.
The U.S. needs to back off. North Korea is not going to give up its nukes in negotiations.

There’s no threat. This is just normal diplomacy for North Korea. They are brilliant manipulators.

Asking hospital workers, first responders; including 911 workers, teachers, road department workers, counselors and service providers, prison guards, plus many others to take the blame for weakening Our Home is wrong in so many ways. We should be praising these hardworking individuals who not only serve us in countless ways, but do so at a financial sacrifice to their families. These union workers, who are our neighbors, should be fairly compensated and thanked, not condemned. -Gayle Cain Cusick
Hello vagueness, goodbye Fourth Amendment To the editor: On Friday, with a 288-127 vote, our House passed the Cyber Information and Protection Act (CISPA) that allows our government entities to acquire our data without a warrant, should a private company holding your data hand it over. Though not yet law, this bill would allow private sector firms to search personal and sensitive user data of ordinary U.S. residents to identify “threat information,” which can then be shared with other private firms and the U.S. government – without the need for a court-ordered warrant. This means any telecom company or technology company (like Facebook, Twitter, Google), including your cell service provider, would be legally able to hand over vast amounts of data to the U.S. government and its law enforcement – for whatever purpose it deems necessary – and face no legal reprisals. The key hook is, despite numerous amendments (some added under a veil of secrecy) and changes, this bill contains no requirements that personal data, including some very private, like health records or banking information should be converted to an anonymous form before sharing it with the government. In a word, this means our individual data could and would be able to be visible to the prying eyes of our “friendly” government.
How stealthy is the guise of “cyber security” feigned by this bill? U.S. firms voluntarily handing data along a one-way street to the U.S. government effectively means the Fourth Amendment does not apply; it’s not snooping if it was handed to the government on cyber security grounds. We’ve voted for people who apparently wish to know every detail of our lives. For what purpose? We know how it’s advertised, but this snake oil is sold by politicians whose lips move. We already know what that means. Wake up neighbors! This bill is dangerously vague. Raise your hand and be heard. Call your write your congress people! -Judson Lightsey Newport
Obama disrespected Thatcher To the editor: Two things happened last week that upset me. First, Mr. Obama showed his disrespect for Margaret Thatcher. The woman turned around the economy of England, which was in total shambles by the previous socialist leadership. She made the English economy very strong in her 12 years as the first female Prime Minister of England. She was elected four times by her people. She also, along with Ronald Regan, won the cold war against Russia. What did Mr. Obama do? He refused to send any envoy to her funeral. He said he was too busy with a domestic agenda, i.e. gun control, to send anyone, even though he sent three diplomats to Hugo Chavez’s funeral. Obama loathes Britain, a view embedded into him from his socialist upbringing. Notice his refusal to acknowledge U.K’s right of the Falkland Islands. Also his first act in the White House was to remove the bust of Winston Churchill, a present from the U.K. Next, his present to the Queen on his first visit to England was a tape of his speeches. Can anybody be more clueless or narcissistic? The second thing was the gun control treaty with the

U.N., which would give the U.N. control of our right to bear arms in this country. It would give the control to the violent dictators of the U.N. Our own Senator Patty Murray, D-Wash. voted for it.

Thanks for highway clean up To the editor: Thank you to all the inmates for cleaning up Highway 41 on Idaho Hill. You all did a great job! -Susan Rodden Oldtown
Taxes not the problem To the editor: We should take exception to the guest opinions of our Washington state representatives Joel Kretz and Shelly Short. Their contention that all Washingtonians are hardworking taxpayers is false. The same is said about gun owners being law-abiding. Paying taxes doesn’t make you hard working and buying a gun
doesn’t make you law-abiding. Playing these word games, it would follow that all politicians (including our representatives) are liars and corrupt. Our representatives then suggest that taxes are linked to job creation. That if we could stop Democrat politicians from reaching for our wallets and stopped government waste, we would have more jobs. Kretz and Short contend that our high 10-15.1 percent unemployment rate is caused by tax uncertainty or overtaxing employers. Using their logic the only thing keeping lumber mills from reopening is high taxes. They apparently believe that people would start or expand businesses on the sole basis of paying fewer taxes. Our representatives then suggest that we don’t need any new taxes or tax increases. The Seventh District receives more than it sends to the state and federal government in taxes. How do the taxes collected from two taxpayers per mile of road pay for that road? The same goes for hospitals, schools, water treatment, public safety, etc. We don’t
have enough rural taxpayers to pay for the level or amount of government that we get. We rely on the redistribution of taxes from higher population districts to supplement our low tax base. Frankly, I wish our governor and Westside Democrats would completely turn their funding noses up at red Eastern Washington and make us pay our own way for all of our government services. That would be a good starting point for challenging the far-fetched tax theories of our district’s representatives. -Pete Scobby Newport
Put worker safety first To the editor: We were lucky this year, just as we have been in the previous few years. Pend Oreille County had no recorded deaths from workplace incidents. That hasn’t always been the case and we can’t count on holding that record in the future – but we can try. April is the month when we traditionally honor those who have died at work. This year on
Saturday, April 27, the Spokane Regional Labor Council will honor Workers Memorial Day with a ceremony at 11 a.m. at Spokane’s Mission Park. Giving honor to these fallen workers is the least we can do. It isn’t something we expect to happen – we expect to get up, go to work and return home safely to our family and friends. But too often, it just doesn’t happen that way. In our county the type of work we do, mining, resource extraction and manufacturing, the risk of hazards is great. According to the Bureau of Land Management, pollution from U.S. mining operations ranks number one among all industries in total toxic releases. There is also a huge push to reduce the toxic effects of silica and combustible dust on worker health. Both of these toxins are by-products of industries right here in Pend Oreille. More than 40 years ago the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) and mine safety law were passed promising workers the right to a safe job. Since then,
workplace deaths and injuries have declined significantly, but this didn’t happen just because laws were passed. It happened because workers and their unions fought and demanded action from employers and the government. It continues to work because workers and their unions still fight to strengthen protections, to police
companies that break the rules, to ensure the public knows what hazards they are exposed to and to prevent cover-ups when companies decide to put profits over worker safety. -Beth Thew Spokane Regional Labor Council, AFL-CIO SecretaryTreasurer

Sexual Violence Prevention and Education Campaign p g
National Denim Day USA April 25th
All day on April 25th, we ask everyone to wear denim jeans or denim day pins. Let’s protest against rape, violence, and childhood sexual abuse in our community and around the world. History of Denim Day:
In Italy, 1999, an 18 year old woman was picked up by her driving instructor. He drove her to an isolated place, forced her out of one pant leg and raped her. The case is taken to court and he is convicted. He appealed to the Supreme court where the case was dismissed and overturned. The court argued that since she wore tight jeans, she must have helped him take them off, so therefore it wasn’t rape but consensual sex. Enraged by this injustice, the women of the Italian Parliament protested by wearing jeans. News of this case made its way to the organization, Peace over Violence, in Los Angles where Denim Day USA was born as a campaign against sexual violence and victim blaming.

executive director’s job is to work with the business community. They want that person out in the community, he said. According to the chamber newsletter, they are: “seeking proposals from chamber members who wish to physically host and operate the day-to-day functions of the current visitors’ center that serves the communities of Newport, Diamond Lake, Cusick, Usk and Oldtown. “Under the terms of its lease, the Pend Oreille Historical Society maintains that the chamber is prohibited from allowing goods or merchandise to be sold at the visitors’ center – the Pend Oreille County Historical Society, operating the museum and associated gift shop, retains exclusive rights in this respect.” Shumski said the chamber will retain ultimate responsibility and oversight of the visitors’ center. The proposals can be for doing the work either at the current visitors’ center or at another location such as a business. Candidates will have the opportunity to earn up to $200 per month for performing this function. The contract would run for seven months from May to December. Proposals are due by 5 p.m. Friday, May 3.

Idaho wants comments on elk plan revision BOISE – Idaho Fish and Game is planning a series of open house meetings to discuss the ongoing elk management plan revision. Learn about the process, ask questions of Fish and Game’s wildlife managers, and share thoughts about statewide management direction. Plan objectives are still in draft form. The first regional open house meeting is in the Panhandle region Thursday, May 2, 3-7 p.m. at the regional office, 2885 W. Kathleen Ave., Coeur d’Alene. Idaho’s current elk management plan is more than 12 years old. Starting in late 2011, Fish and Game launched an effort to revise and update that plan. Strategies in the plan will be driven by public expectations and changes in elk populations. Revisions are based largely on a survey of Idaho elk hunters and in part on changes in habitat, predation and agricultural depredation conflicts. Comments are due by May 31. They may be submitted during public meetings; to wildlife managers at regional offices; by email to email@example.com or by mail to Elk Plan Comments, P.O. Box 25, Boise, ID 83707.

COLVILLE – Newport had a league meet in Colville last week against Kettle Falls and Chewelah. The Grizzlies were missing too many of their main athletes to have a chance at winning the meet, coach Rory Axel said, but the team kept it close with some really good performances. Senior Zack Chantry set personal records in the 100, finishing second, and the 200, taking first. He continued with a second place in the 400 with another personal record of 56.17. Senior Scott McMeen was the ironman of the meet, Axel said. He won the 800, 1,600 and the 3,200 and brought the four-
by-400 relay home in first. Marissa Hofstee set a personal record of 13.56 as she won the 100-meter dash and then helped the four-by-200 relay to first place at a time of 2:01.

NEWPORT – The Newport Grizzlies baseball team played twice at home last week, losing 12-0 to Medical Lake and 14-3 to Bonners Ferry. Tuesday, April 16 they played Medical Lake for the second time.

Medical Lake hit scored 11 in the opening inning. “Our pitching and defense improved and we allowed one run after that,” Castro said. Seth Hervey relieved Jacob Satterlee the third inning, getting out three batters with six pitches,
Castro said. In the fourth inning, Hervey gave up a run but only faced four batters, he said. “These are the signs of improving I have been waiting for,” Castro said.

They lived in the logging camp for six months and in a house for six months. The girls graduated from the eighth grade at the one-room schoolhouse on Lamb Creek. The family then moved to Priest River where Marie and her sister completed their education. According to Marie’s sister, Virginia, “Marie and I had a great childhood, spending a lot of time with our grandparents at Jewel Lake.

Virginia loved her sister very much and will miss her dearly, she said. Ms. Kinman had a son, Roger, who was born in May 1945, when she met and married Russ Ratcliff in June 1946 at West Yellowstone, Mont.
