Forest Service responds to caribou proposal Bonner commissioner propose new plan OF THE MINER
PRIEST LAKE – The Idaho Panhandle Forest is concerned about a number of features in a proposed plan to designate part of the forest as protected habitat for woodland caribou, according to comments submitted to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service by forest supervisor Mary Farnsworth. USFWS published a proposal in November 2011, to designation critical habitat for the Southern Selkirk Mountains population of the woodland caribou. A portion of this proposed habitat is located within the Idaho Panhandle National Forest. One of the Forest Service’s concerns is that the proposal would designate almost 19,000 acres of critical habitat on the IPNF outside the official recovery area, below 4,500 feet elevation. “For example,” Farnsworth wrote,” there are currently four timber sales where portions of the project are situated in these proposed areas outside the 1985 recovery zone boundary that were determined to have “no effect” on woodland caribou. Besides the obvious need to consult, there are immediate potential procedural and economic consequences to altering these sales.” Additionally, Farnsworth warns that activities that may be affected by the proposal includes that of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection personnel as part of their patrols. The proposal calls for minimizing the chance of wildfire in the area, and the implementation of rapid fire suppression when wildfires do occur. Farnsworth writes that wildfire

is necessary for other endangered species in the recovery area, including grizzly bear, lynx and whitebark pine, “all of which require some level of fire for habitat establishment and maintenance.” Farnsworth calls the descriptions and mapping of the proposed habitat “large, vague and potentially confusing.” While snowmobiling has been the most discussed recreational activity that could be affected by the designation, the plan also calls for “little to no disturbance” from other forms of recreation. Farnsworth wants more clarification on what that exactly means, and how summer recreation will be affected. “Although the proposal mentions camping and hiking in passing as potentially affecting caribou, it does not recognize that many of the areas that may ultimately be designated as critical habitat are also popular destinations for summer recreational activities including day hiking, backpacking and camping,” Farnsworth wrote. The Bonner County commissioners have been working with USFWS to come to a compromise on how much land is designated critical habitat and how that will affect the economy at Priest Lake. After a public hearing held June 16, Bonner County commissioner Mike Nielsen discussed a plan to work together. “After receiving a generally positive response to the concept from both federal agencies, (the U.S. Forest Service and USFWS) I reduced the concept to a draft written proposal,” Nielsen said in an email. The proposal is to establish a government-to-government workgroup composed of staff including Fish and Wildlife and the Forest Service.

RURAL | PILT compensates for nontaxable federal land
FROM PAGE 1
Pend Oreille County is a top recipient of these programs, and will receive about $1.14 million in SRS funding, and $758,000 in PILT funding, Cantwell’s press secretary Janeen Heath told The Miner. Bonner County will receive payment of $477,771 in PILT funding and $1.07 million in Secure Rural Schools funding. In Washington, however, state funding for education is decreased dollar-for-dollar by how much a school district receives in federal funding so it hasn’t been significant for rural school districts. But Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers has added a provision in the House renewal bill that would ensure the portion of funding for schools is sent directly to the school districts. The SRS program expired Sept. 30. The program funding helps compensate for revenue lost from declining U.S. Forest Service timber harvests on federal lands near forest communities.

for federal land that cannot be a source of property taxes. The fiscal year 2012 payments are the last PILT payments to go out unless the program is reauthorized. With these funds, rural counties invest in construction projects, roads, education and forest conservation to make up for their inability to collect taxes on large swaths of public lands. “The programs provide crucial investments for roads and schools in Washington’s forest communities,” Cantwell said. “As rural counties continue to face financial hardships, this support helps maintain essential services, keep roads in working condition and keep teachers on the job. Moving forward, I will continue to advance our bipartisan legislation to provide longer-term certainty for Washington timber counties.” Along with various transportation projects such as the ferry system in Washington, the act prevents subsidized Stafford student loan interest rates from doubling July 1.

SACHEEN LAKE – The virtually non-existent La Nina conditions of this past winter are certainly making up for lost ground this spring with yet another near record month of rainfall. The strong thunderstorms of this past weekend dropped another 1.38” of precipitation in the local rain buckets bringing the monthly total to a whopping 5.32” here in the Sacheen Lake area for June. While this is not even close to the 9.28 inches we received back in March, it is certainly a respectable amount of rain non-the-less, especially considering that we are now entering what is typically the driest time of the year. Even though La Nina is gone the weather patterns associated with her remain very active. This is not all that uncommon

NEWPORT – If the 12 gauge, semi automatic shotgun had worked, a man would have shot one of two men he thought burglarized his house and rammed a truck, knocking over his girlfriend. But the gun wouldn’t fire and the two men escaped. Charging documents lay out a scenario of what happened at a McCloud Creek residence last March. When a woman and her male companion returned from grocery shopping, they saw an SUV parked in the driveway and the door to the residence open. The woman parked so that she blocked the vehicle and went to the house. When she did, two men ran from the trees and got into the SUV. As they were attempting to leave, they struck her vehicle twice, knocking her down as she held onto her truck. Her male companion grabbed the shotgun and attempted to fire to keep her from being run over, according to charging documents. The two men accused of breaking in and stealing $5,000 worth of jewelry and a 31-inch flat screen television were in Pend Oreille County

In fact, if the latest weather models verify, then we should begin seeing some real summer-like weather in early July, right on schedule. If La Nina’s brother El Nino develops, (right now, there is a about a 50/50 chance of that happening) then things could become real hot and dry by later in the summer. Of course, thunderstorm activity is always a wild-card during the summer months, and it remains to be seen how these latest developments in the Equatorial Pacific will play out here in the Northwest.

Mick Ratcliff, left, and Don Winterfield have volunteered to help with the finishing work. The second floor will eliminate the need to have people on the roof filming as they have in the past. The second floor gives a better view of the field and the open window will improve the live game broadcasts. A staircase was built inside the first floor. The PUD Community Connectivity department and Pend Oreille Valley Foundation contributed to the project. Sewell and Associates donated engineering services.

NEWPORT – Pend Oreille County prosecutors dismissed charges of possession of stolen property and trafficking in stolen property against Remington Lumpkin, 31, of Newport. Lumpkin had been free on $25,000 bond. Prosecutors said a key witness moved away. “I don’t know where she is,” deputy prosecutor Tony Koures said in Pend Oreille County Superior Court Thursday, June 28. They dismissed the charges but reserved the option to bring them back after further investigation. Charges of residential burglary, first-degree theft and second-degree trafficking in stolen property were dismissed against Zane Lumpkin earlier.

Baby gives reporter hope again
t was almost 30 years ago that I wrote one of my first columns as a young reporter for a western Washington newspaper. This piece was also written at the last minute with the editor waiting to get the newspaper negatives to the press. I was equally tired of the many stories I had to write about the poor economy, man’s inhumanity to man and life’s continuous stream of tragedies. More specifically at that time I was covering local government meetings. They were short on cash and had to lay people off. I wrote how they made the cuts. One of the mayors – a huge guy that owned the sporting goods store – had me come in and sit on a stool reserved for equally huge friends of his. He calmly said when I sat down: “They haven’t shot you yet?” I guess he wasn’t too happy about my budget stories. I was also in the middle of covering the state prison complex in Monroe. I went in to talk to inmates on a regular basis. It was an ocean of tragedy, violence and government bureaucracy. Depressing wasn’t enough of a word to describe the scene. But I also found a few folks abusing the abusers. They were feeding cheap tainted meat to the inmates and selling the good stuff on the side. I also went in on Thanksgiving with a wife and kids to cover one of the first conjugal visits in a state prison. Happy tension in a trailer was the story line. Today, there are different stories with different people. Many of the tragedies and problems with government are similar. We continue to record them for our readers. One thing that is similar between this column and the one I wrote 28 years ago for another newspaper is that it also ends with hope. That column was about the birth of my first son the night before and all the inspiration and hope it filled me with then. I saw a bright future ahead for him and my community. I was proud to be his father. All the rest of the stories seemed insignificant after that. I feel the same today after holding my first grandson Sunday night. Everything is going to be all right. --Fred J. Willenbrock Publisher
Both candidates guilty of gross fundraising “Isn’t it disgusting that Mr. Romney is having these secret fundraisers (he is not telling where) in Washington during these hard times,” writes Harold Fish of Eatonville. “I wonder how people here who lost their jobs and/or their homes felt reading in their newspaper that Mr. Romney had the gall to make a drop-in visit here to collect GUEST the financial OPINION homage of the rich and leave ADELE FERGUSON town with CORRESPONDENT the whole schmeer. “Sound familiar? Try Oct. 5, 2011. Pathetic and desperate it was. I really wondered whether senility (I’m fighting it too) had finally robbed you of all common sense. “Then there was ‘Spreading the blame for the gas prices.’ The typically arrogant, hypocritical, ignorant rant of those who care not one whit for the environment. “What has our massive use of energy produced? The U.S. consumes twice as much energy per capita as the richest countries of the European Union. The overall efficiency of America’s cars, vans, SUVs, did not change between 1986 and 2000, compared to a doubling of efficiency between 1975 and 1985. If that trend had continued: 50 miles per gallon. We throw away 40 percent of our food supply yet are the most glaringly fattest nation on earth.
In 2008, oil was $147 a barrel and Bush told his Wahabi bedmates to pump more. They did but said there is plenty and it is Wall Street speculators driving prices up. “What I really wanted to do in this missive was to thank you for clarifying my choice on the next governor. You tell me that Jay Inslee voted against the CheneyBush-Halliburton-Bechtel-KelloggBrown and Root war that cost 4,000 lives. Let’s not count the 40,000 who’ll never walk and talk and feed themselves. Jay Inslee has my vote on that alone. “The Lakota people call the white man wasichu which means fat-taker or greedy man who lives in complete opposition to natural order. He’s also called washi-mani or steal all. Wasichu has wrecked the world economy, polluted the planet and continues to poison with all manner of toxins and live in privilege and immunity.” I don’t recall that the President ever hung around or stopped to chin with the jobless and homeless on his visits to our state. That’s to be expected, of course. They don’t have any money to give him. He prefers to associate with the rich and powerful. He spent part of a day here not long ago on his way to a $40,000 a plate dinner at George Clooney’s Hollywood home and while here picked up $560,000 via a $35,800 per couple dinner at a private home and a $1,000 per ticket rally at the Paramount Theatre. Washingtonians ponied up $4.9 million for him in the last 13 months, considerably more than Romney’s $1.5 million Washington take over the same period. SEE FERGUSON, 5A
|| A tongue in cheek chat at the White House To the editor: When asked how the government’s doing, the Obama’s tour guide said, “Quite well actually. We’ve already had 165 fundraisers and we’re pulling in the loot!” No! I said, I meant our country’s government back in Washington D.C. “Oh,” he said. It must be doing quite well, we’ve been to Hollywood and no complaints there. We’ve been to a large number of union halls and have heard no complaints. Heck, we’ve even been to several private homes where we had to haul away the booty, excuse me, the donations in the garbage bags! And not one fat cat, erase that, I meant millionaire complained.” I asked what about the unemployment, Social Security, the wars going on, the housing debacle, the fast and furious scandal, etc., he just smiled and said, “when we get enough money, who cares?” Scratch that! I mean when we get reelected this country will see the sequel to “Change I,” anyway, old Joe B. is back there with his hand on the tiller, he knows Hillary has her fat, ah, foot in the VP chair next time anyway!” I said, well I sure hope you guys know what you’re doing, and he said, “Heck yes, Mr. Average Guy. We’re getting ours while the getting’s good.” -Larry Connelly Cusick

what has happened to water levels the last two years. Beaver dams have always been in Moon Creek. Historically these dams have been removed when high water flooding became a problem. Water flows through Moon Creek, to Sacheen Lake, eventually to the West Branch of the Little Spokane River. This spring, high water is not being allowed to flow out of Diamond Lake. Water flow is being inhibited in Moon Creek. The new beaver dams have raised water levels and caused a new high water mark for Diamond Lake. Sure hope the Pend Oreille County assessor pays a visit to Diamond Lake. Beaches have either washed away or are under abnormally high floodwaters and are currently unusable. Using Diamond Lake for boating, forget it. The water levels are rising, get used to a no wake on this lake for a long time. According to Cheryl Balentine’s letter, she also needs a visit from the assessor. She and her neighbors along Moon Creek can now have their property values inflated and higher taxes associated with their new found water property. The county commissioners need to do their job they were elected to perform. They do have authority to address the abnormal high water conditions at Diamond Lake. They have chosen to give lip service and do nothing. I applaud the work done by those associated with the Diamond Lake Improvement Association. It is time for all residents at Diamond Lake to support this group, especially financially as it appears to me legal pressure may be needed to alleviate once and for all the Moon Creek issue and the beaver dams that are blocking the

Any realtor will tell you people looking to buy a home want good schools and safe neighborhoods.

They want OPINION to know that if they are in DON C. an accident, BRUNELL someone ASSOCIATION OF WASHINGTON will respond BUSINESS PRESIDENT quickly to help them. While Washington needs more money to build new highways and repair existing roads, streets and interstates, one area in which our state excels is emergency response. In our state, if a vehicle is stalled in the middle of the road, there is a good chance that within minutes, a state trooper or incident response truck will be there to clear the roadway and protect drivers and passengers. If there is a collision on an interstate in Washington, you’ll see a sea of flashing red and blue lights from the State Patrol, aid cars and other emergency vehicles. That’s not the case in other states. For example, if you have a fender bender in neighboring Oregon, lots of luck. This actually happened recently. A family member was on her way to work on Interstate 5 in Portland. Just beyond where I-405 merges with I-5, a pickup truck hit her car from behind. Our family member and the pickup driver managed to move both vehicles to the shoulder of the interstate. I got to the accident a half hour later and a Portland police officer pulled up just behind me. Fortunately, neither driver appeared to be seriously injured. The police officer examined both cars, asked if our car was drivable (it wasn’t), checked for leaking fluids, asked if I had called a tow truck, lit a flare and left the scene. No police report, no accident report, nothing. After more than two hours, another Portland police officer stopped, asked what had happened and if a tow truck had been called. When I said yes, he asked for an estimated time. I told him the dispatcher told me 45 minutes. He immediately called the towing service the police department uses and within 15 minutes our cars were off the interstate shoulder, and we were on the way to the emergency room to get checked out. The point is, citizens need and deserve a well-staffed professional state patrol and emergency response system. Oregon’s state police force is about half the size of Wash-

Metzger getting a taste of his own medicine To the editor: I was so sorry to hear that Tom Metzger is having a problem with his neighbor (June 27 issue of The Miner). I would like to remind him of the problem we had a few years back when we were assured by Mr. Metzger and Mr. Jim Marthaller, formerly of the planning department, that no they would never allow a resident lot to be divided into three parcels in Pend Oreille County, nor would anyone be allowed to set three RVs on said lot five feet from our living room window. That we were worrying about nothing. It will not happen. Well we all know it did happen. I would like to remind Mr. Metzger of the advice he gave us at that time and I quote him, “Pend Oreille County is not for everyone you might be happier some place else?” It is so nice that his office has the means to hire some one to help him with the problem that he is having. I mean a party at the lake, that’s terrible. -Carole Johnson Usk

Stop calling them undocumented. They’re breaking the law and it’s not some technicality. Round up and deport all illegals immediately.
President Obama’s action was a purely political move designed to win votes in the presidential election. He should not have done it.
It’s hugely inconvenient. Stores should provide bags as a customer service. I reuse my plastic bags anyway. Banning them is unnecessary. It’s about time. We need to cut down on waste, and reusable bags are the way to go. Reusable bags are a good idea, but I never remember to bring mine.

While you are dissing the people for being fat and wasteful and greedy, Mr. Fish, I notice that you don’t mention the trips the president is making at our expense in Air Force One during his campaign plus the cost of all the cops required for escort and security. Fundraisers are linked with a visit to a factory or a school or anything to make it look as if that was the main purpose of the trip, rather than vice versa. As for Jay Inslee, you are welcome to him, Mr. Fish. I hope you enjoy your electric car once you
and the President make gasoline and coal off limits. Better start saving for it now because they say the batteries will cost $40,000. And maybe you missed the Seattle Times story detailing how biotech giant Amgen was the top donor to Inslee’s reelection campaign in 2010, after he slipped a provision in the Obamacare law that shielded such industries from competition by cheaper genetics for 12 years, something critics said was a costly mistake worth billions to Amgen et al.

ington’s, even though Oregon is a larger state. There is a noticeable difference in state trooper presence between the two states. In Washington, the State Patrol actively enforces speed limits, aggressive driving, construction zone safety, seat belt usage, and cellphone and texting violations. In our state, reckless or intoxicated drivers are caught and punished. That’s because over the years, Washington governors and legislators have made highway safety a priority and kept our State Patrol strong. Since its modest beginnings with six motorcycle officers in 1921, the Washington State Patrol has become one of the premier law enforcement organizations in the nation with 1,600 investigators, support personnel, crime lab technicians and patrol officers. Each day, some 600 officers patrol our highways to help keep our roads and citizens safe. In contrast, budget cuts in Oregon have hurt that state’s police presence. While traffic accidents will happen, it is comforting to know that in Washington, the response is swift and public safety is the highest priority. Having made that point, the
best of all worlds is not to have an accident in the first place. Hopefully, this July 4, people will slow down, drive safely and stow their cellphones until they get to their destinations.

South Shore Store and Restaurant, Eagles Nest Gas and Store (old Everhearts), Safeways, print shop in Newport, insurance company, The Miner Newspaper, cafe’s in Newport, McDonalds, second hand stores, etc. The list is endless when you look at all the money that exchange in this one business. Wow! Kudos neighbor, you paid your dues and what a grand inn you have! It’s so beautiful – impressive! From neighbor to neighbor imagine chasing away so much economically needed income in times like these. So why do we even want to bite the hand that feeds so many and hurt a business that paid its dues? So Mr. Metzger is the neighbor who gets to use taxpayer money from the prosecutor’s professional services budget for an issue he has with his neighbor! That is where I want my taxes to go. Mr. Metzger is retiring. With all due respect maybe Mr. Meztger ought to turn his place into such a moneymaker for his retirement. Sounds like a better plan than “not in my backyard, aye.” Here’s the real irony. Planning allowed a “use to change from its original use and intent in the middle of a development into a Mini RV Park development right around mainly single family dwellings at Sacheen Lake across from the boat launch. Do you think this changed the character of that neighborhood? Golly maybe we should support that new local business now that it’s here with the blessing from our county and state officials. That’s right, that’s not in Mr. Metzger’s backyard; it’s in Diane Wear’s, Anthony Newcomb’s, mine and others in the Sacheen Lake area aye. -Donna Lands Newport

use permit in June 2010, to allow me to legally rent my small summer cabin. The Cagianuts exerted significant effort, along with others, to block my application. In an e-mail dated July 11, 2010, they stated “There is an urgent need to let our County Commissioners know that we need to stop approval of all conditional use applications for vacation home rentals until guidelines, rules and regulations can be established.” The rules are in place, and now that there is an attempt to enforce them, the Cagianuts appear to be unwilling to follow the very rules they sought so hard to be enacted. I support the county’s efforts to bring the Inn at the Lake into compliance with the regulations. I believe that there should be one set of rules, applied equally, to all. P.S. I did get my permit, but it was approved in mid September 2010, preventing me from any chance of renting it that summer. -Janet Rose Rea Seattle
Financial corruption forces more bankruptcies To the editor: The city of Stockton filed a record breaking municipal bankruptcy. Sucked dry of operating capital by pension benefits exceeding declining revenue investments. Pension fund financiers keep their millions of dollars in derivatives commissions at the low capital gain tax rate of 15 percent, and a return of their speculative investment capital, according to bankruptcy law. Extremes of poverty, wealth, income and tax disparities create declining social and economic health. Double-dealing financial speculation bankrupted Jefferson County ($4 billion record
bankruptcy, leveraged on an original $300 million project). JP Morgan’s, Mr. Anti-Regulation, Hands-on, Jamie Dimon, gained majority shareholder approval for continuing as CEO with $23 million in performance pay when that little March, tempest in a teapot, was April’s, $1 billion fluke loss, well maybe $2 billion, then in May, maybe up to $5 billion, now turns out, $10 billion swap and derivative loss. Key Congresspersons work to stall funding of financial regulatory reform implementation and receive financial contributions assuring continued corruption in a mafia-type stranglehold on our public money supply. One percenters get taxpayer bailouts, use our taxpayer deposits, guaranteed, low interest Fed overnight back-ups; and quantitative easing type stimulus (digitally created money, even more public subsidies). Their nonproductive increased economic activity does not increase the general economic pie. These Godfathers receive performance pay in the millions of dollars and are freely buying-up our elections. They pay-off all sides. Total world manufacturing jobs are declining with robotics increasing production rates, as populations increase. We have declining wealth, income and unsustainable economic consumer demand. The less the 99 percent have, the less jobs and economic growth there will be. A least we have Obamacare, health care and insurance profitiers, to distract us from the real social economic rot. -Duane Schofield Cusick
Our energy is not ‘American’ To the editor: Last week I had to look at the picture of the Guest Opinion article to determine if the writer was Adele Ferguson or our congresswoman. It was our
congresswoman, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, who had us gathered around the family table to discuss something she calls “American energy.” I suppose it would be energy produced here in America that is subject to the world commodities and speculation free market. The market determines the price we pay for energy, not the flag of the country where it is produced or consumed. Our congresswoman fails to understand that nothing produced in the free market is American. That includes the foreign stockholders and investors that demand a return on anything a U.S. company or corporation produces. I wonder if the congresswoman thinks that U.S. citizens are the only investors that buy stocks on Wall Street. The oil that is pumped from American soil is not owned by Americans. The only way we could have American energy would be to nationalize the oil industry and have the federal government own and control the price. Not even the hydropower produced by our dams is American in the sense that electricity is a commodity subject to price speculation. I would like to see the congresswoman attach an American flag to a kilowatt. Even our coal is going to China and will come back to us in the form of plastics and consumer goods. The prices will be higher because the coal comes from America and has the added train and ship transportation costs. The congresswoman is on record opposing the environmental protection for the sake of producing American energy that is not American in any way. We live in a global economy where people in foreign countries simply outbid Americans for the energy that is produced in this country. -Pete Scobby Newport

WDFW confirms new wolf pack OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has confirmed another wolf pack and a wolf attack on sheep in northeast Washington. Using remote video cameras, biologists documented at least five gray wolf pups last week in southern Stevens County, east of the town of Fruitland and north of the Spokane Indian Reservation. In reference to nearby Huckleberry Mountain, the pack has been named the Huckleberry pack. The new pack is Washington’s seventh confirmed wolf pack, including the recently documented Nc’icn pack on the Colville Confederated Tribes reservation. An additional five packs are also suspected in the state. At about the same time the new wolf pack was documented, WDFW investigated an attack on domestic sheep in northwestern Spokane County, near Nine Mile Falls. Based on evidence at the scene, including wolf tracks and the trauma to the carcass, state
wildlife officials confirmed that the attack was from a wolf. WDFW officials are working with the livestock producer on compensation for the sheep. Washington’s new wolf management plan, adopted last December, includes provisions to compensate ranchers who lose livestock to wolf predation, said Steve Pozzanghera, a regional WDFW director and wolf policy lead. In confirmed wolf depredation cases, livestock owners can be compensated for the full market value of lost animals. “The primary goal of the new management plan is to protect gray wolves as they naturally re-establish themselves in Washington,” Pozzanghera said. “But the plan also provides for compensation when landowners lose livestock to wolf depredation.” Wolves are currently listed by the state as endangered throughout Washington. The species remains federally listed as endangered in the western two-thirds of the state.

NEWS FROM NORTH PEND OREILLE COUNTY INCLUDING IONE, METALINE & METALINE FALLS
Selkirk selects Educator of the Year METALINE FALLS – A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” That is a quote from U.S. author, Henry Adams, great-grandson of John Adams. While a teacher may never know the end result of their influence, there is one place we can point to where it begins. It starts quietly, Fairbairn with a smile and gentle voice, but like a ripple on a pond, it is never ending, always expanding. According to Selkirk School District Superintendent Nancy Lotze that is how you can describe the influence of Patricia “Trish” Fairbairn on Selkirk students for the past 18 years. With the exception of one of those years as a first grade teacher, Fairbairn has spent that time as Selkirk’s sole kindergarten teacher. On June 15, at the end of year elementary school assembly, Lotze announced that Fairbairn was selected as the 2012 Selkirk Educator of the Year. Beginning in 1999, the Selkirk School District Board of Directors began recognizing one staff member each year as Educator of the Year. The board makes the selection based on nominations received from students, parents, community, and other staff but the school board makes the final decision after a lengthy review of the nominations and discussion. The educator selected must have a reputation for professionalism and have the respect of both staff and students. Some award winners are selected for a specific contribution they have made during that year and others are recognized because they constantly go out of their way to help others and consistently look for new ways to positively influence the lives of students. The reason for Fairbairn’s award falls into both categories. Over the past two years, she assumed a new role as Title 1 teacher in addition to her kindergarten assignment. Fairbairn split her time between both the kindergarten classroom and developing
interventions to help students in grades 1-5 become more successful in reading and math. She also organized the three successful Family Night evenings. Sandy Haney, elementary paraeducator, wrote in her nomination for Fairbairn that “the compassion she shows our students is amazing. She always takes the extra time to make sure they (students) are getting the help they need to become more successful in the classroom. Working with Trish in the Title 1 program has been another part of my job that I love.” Pam Hamman, another paraeducator who has worked with her noted that “Trish’s learning never stops. She has embraced changes in her job with enthusiasm. When kindergarten went to a half-day program and she became the Title instructor, she worked with staff and children, learning her job and guiding us through the changes. Her calm, quiet, confident demeanor makes it easy for the children to learn and makes these changes less stressful for us all.” Other staff members including teachers and counselors also submitted nominations for Fairbairn citing that she is continually looking for ways to make a positive impact on students by making connections with staff and students, investing her time and resources, and by what appears to be an inexhaustible supply of flexibility. Also noted was Fairbairn’s desire to improve and grow professionally. Students heartily seconded the nomination. The majority of children in our elementary school have benefited from her guided instruction and gentle approach as they launched their educational career. Her classroom is a place of joy, comfort, and learning. Superintendent Lotze said, “While the end result of a teacher’s positive influence may never be fully realized, the school board intended the award as recognition that a quality beginning to a child’s educational journey, like that provided by Trish Fairbairn, is priceless.”
‘Scrambled McManus,’ artist reception set for July 14 METALINE FALLS – Enjoy an evening of laughter at the Cutter Theatre when Tim Behrens presents “Scrambled McManus,” a comedy by Patrick McManus. The event is set for Saturday, July 14 at 7:30 p.m. at the theatre, 302 Park St., Metaline Falls. Tickets are $15. McManus and Behrens personally selected some of their favorite tales from the four complete McManus Comedies for inclusion in this story stew. Stories include many audience favorites: The Night the Bear Ate Goombaw, the Grasshopper Trap, the Camping Trip with 100-year-old Ed, First Date (with Melba Peachbottom), the Mummy Story (or how I learned to love the dark) and just for this show, Our First Cannon. The audience hears directly from 10 McManus characters as they humorously recount how story made them come to life, and why stories mean so much in the first place. The show appeals equally to diehard fans and to newcomers to the wacky wonderful world of Pat McManus and the denizens of his hometown of Blight, Idaho. McManus, one of the most popular humor writers in the country, has penned 23 titles which have sold more than 6 million copies. Five of his short humor collections have made

Also that evening is the gallery exhibit opening of artist Mel McCuddin’s figurative expressionist show. A reception begins at 6 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres and wine. McCuddin has been painting for more than 40 years, and on the brink of his 80th year remains as energized by the craft as ever before. His creations involve “buttering” a canvas with oil paint, manipulating layers and textures using his fingertips, or a rag as often as brush. He sits back and patiently observes; awaiting the shapes to emerge as suggestion from the canvas and only then gently coaxesout what is meant to be. He and his wife Gloria have been married for more than 40 years; they are musicians and make their home in Spokane. A former student of Eastern Washington University, McCuddin and his wife have taken the Cutter Theatre under wing, demonstrating their support of the nonprofit’s mission by the July through October gallery showing, and by becoming Cutter Theatre members.

Group monitors timber sale
This is one of the animals waiting for adoption. All are altered and vaccinated before going to their forever homes.
Animal care agency changes name
NEWPORT – The Pend Oreille Spay/Neuter Alliance (POSNA) is tweaking its name. The initials will remain the same, but they will now stand for “Pawsitive Outreach Spay/Neuter Alliance.” It will be business as usual, however, as the group continues to provide affordable spay/neuter assistance to low income pet owners, including transportation to and from the clinic. “We have always helped anyone we possibly could, so we don’t want people to think we only work in Pend Oreille County,” POSNA president Cindy Knudsen said. “We’ve had a few people call and say ‘well, you probably won’t help us because we live in Idaho,’ so we have to wonder if we’re missing people who don’t call at all. We’ve helped people and their animals from Priest Lake to Bayview, from Ione to Elk, and
everywhere in between. Community outreach is what we do, so our new name will better reflect our mission.” Although POSNA doesn’t have a shelter at this point, they also do rescue work. “We currently have over a dozen wonderful animals saved from desperate situations, waiting for forever homes,” foster coordinator Tammy Parker said. “If there were just more people able to foster, on a temporary basis, we could help many more. We are always dealing with a number of very difficult situations at any one time, most of which have been going on for years. There is such an enormous backlog of need! We are very pleased to welcome the new members coming onboard, but more are needed.” POSNA members are excited to
be at the Lavender Festival. “It will be a wonderful opportunity to visit with some of the people we’ve worked with in the past, and meet new friends who can help us reach even more animals in need,” vice president Stacy Hawley said. “We’ve assisted in the spaying/neutering of over 250 animals so far this year, and with strong community support, a big impact can be made towards reducing the number of homeless and abandoned animals in our area.” The group, a non-profit organization, is still in need of donations of craft items for the festival, good quality cat and dog food for the animals in their care and pet owners in need, and of course monetary gifts. If you can help in any way, or if you need help with your own animals, call Cindy at 509-671-1427.
Help keep invasive species out of Washington waters OLYMPIA – As state waters warm with the approach of summer, aquatic plants and animals flourish – including aquatic invasive species. Boaters can help protect the waters they enjoy – and avoid potential fines – by following a few simple precautions, said Allen Pleus, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) aquatic invasive-species coordinator. To protect Washington waters, all watercraft should be cleaned, drained and dried before launch and after leaving the water for a new destination. Transporting aquatic invasive species is illegal in Washington, with a potential fine of $500 plus decontamination costs for violations. Specifically, boaters are asked to take the following steps before launching or moving their boat to another destination: • Clean – remove any visible plants, dirt or animal life from boats, motors, trailers, boots and other personal gear and equipment, and • Drain – pull the plug to release lake or stream water at the source from fish wells, wakeboard ballast tanks and bait buckets (put bait in the garbage), For more information on aquatic invasive species, visit the
WDFW website at http://wdfw. wa.gov/ais/youcanhelp.html . To report an aquatic invasive species sighting, request a free
inspection, or request information on aquatic invasive species contacts in other states, call 888-933-9247 toll-free.
Monitoring protocols assess the implementation and effectiveness of selected forest practices COLVILLE – A recently completed timber sale project in the Misery Lake area of the Colville National Forest in Pend Oreille County has received a passing grade after being scrutinized to see if outcomes fulfilled requirements set by the U.S. Forest Service. The work was carried out by the Northeast Washington Forestry Coalition and paid for by a grant provided by Title II of the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-determination Act of 2000. The Forestry Coalition worked collaboratively with the Forest Service to design and implement monitoring protocols to assess project effectiveness of selected forest practices applied to the Misery Timber Sale. The Forestry Coalition specifically looked at: Road construction and maintenance; streamside buffers; regeneration harvest patch size, basal area, number of trees per acre, and stand density index; and the efficacy of forestry prescriptions. Fuels reduction was also evaluated in reducing the likelihood of catastrophic fire spreading to the adjacent Wildland Urban Interface (WUI). A picture guide of prescriptions, treatments, and suitable leave trees was also developed. The Forest Service and Forestry Coalition held a field trip in May to review monitoring report findings and discuss how better to adapt findings to future forestry projects. “The purpose of effectiveness monitoring was essentially to test if forestry practices applied to Misery Project were followed and did outcomes meet intended objectives. The USFS and NEWFC mutually developed monitoring protocols that focused on the application and effectiveness of forestry Best Management Practices (BMP’s) including pre- and post-harvest streamside (no-cut) buffers, leave-tree quality/quan-
tity and road construction and maintenance,” said Eric Trimble, U.S Forest Service program manager. “The challenge the Forestry Coalition took on was to use its extensive background in forest management, in collaboration with the Colville National Forest, to develop a set of management protocols to assess post-project effectiveness,” said Dick Dunton, retired Washington DNR firefighter and monitoring coordinator for the Misery
project. “Effectiveness monitoring is essential to adaptively adjust management prescriptions to meet the needs of restoring healthy forest ecosystems in our Colville National Forest.” Interested parties are invited to review the Misery Lake Monitoring Final Report and prescription and treatment picture guide on the Forestry Coalition webpage www. newforestrycoalition.org/ for more information.

There, they’ll begin a 17.5-mile bike ride on a loop course, returning to the powwow grounds to set their bikes down and lace up their running shoes for a four mile run. The bicycle route leaves the powwow grounds and heading south on LeClerc Road, across the Usk Bridge, crossing Highway 20 at McKenzie Road, then traveling along West Calispell Road Loop through Cusick along River Road, back across the Usk Bridge and to the powwow grounds. The running course travels north on the Kalispel dike along the Pend Oreille River then south
on LeClerc and finishing back at the powwow grounds. First place prizes will be awarded to winners from each zip code. Team relays of two or three people will be competing overall for the “ice torch.” The entry fee is $50 for individuals or $100 for a team relay. Entry forms are available at www.tsunamisprint.com. Organizers are seeking sponsors. Donations can be sent to Tsunami Corporation, 525 S. Union Ave., Newport, WA 99156. So far, sponsors include the Kalispel Public Safety Department, Camas Center, Country Lane and the Usk General Store. Organizers thanked the Kalispel Tribe of Indians for allowing the event to be held on tribal land. A few pre-events are planned to warm up for the triathlon. An indoor test run will take place at the Camas Center on Aug. 25.
There is a $10 registration fee, plus a $10 Camas Center fee if the participant does not have a membership. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the event begins at 10 a.m. A pre-sprint potluck is planned for Friday, Aug. 31 at 8 p.m. at the Cusick City Park. There will be music and karaoke and a healthy potluck with a prize awarded to the healthiest recipe. A drum circle is also part of the festivities. There will be drums made available to people that do not have their own. Contact Cynthia Merritt, 509-435-6398. All proceeds are going towards beginning a local software development company that specializes in athletics, education, and business development for the iPad and iPhone. The goal of this company is to become world renown in each of these markets by utilizing a special set of patent pending development methods.
Participation encouraged in Idaho’s wildlife summit BOISE – Anyone with an interest in wildlife in Idaho is encouraged to participate in the Idaho Wildlife Summit Aug. 24, 25 and 26. The Summit will convene in Boise and six concurrent satellite sites in Coeur d’Alene, Lewiston, Twin Falls, Pocatello, Idaho Falls and Salmon. People may participate online if they are unable to attend in person. The summit is a landmark event for wildlife conservation in Idaho. It is the most far-reaching undertaking the agency has attempted, in terms of encouraging all wildlife enthusiasts to participate and the technologies being used to engage them. Idaho Fish and Game hopes to gain a better understanding of what is important to people in terms of the future of wildlife. One way for participants to express that is through an “Idaho Café” on Saturday afternoon. The Idaho Café is a structured discussion in which participants will be able to exchange ideas. They will gather in a café-like setting with four people around a small table to discuss a specific question and record their thoughts. After about a half hour, three people at each table will move to
different tables; one will stay. The process then repeats with a new question. Participants will get through five questions in about 2 1/2 hours. Participants also may share their opinions in several “Fishing Polls” – a simple electronic poll also known as a clicker poll – with instant or nearly instant results. At several times during the summit, participants will be asked to respond to survey questions by using any electronic device that has texting capability, such as a cell phone, a smart phone or a home computer. The event also will include opportunities for participants to learn about the challenges facing wildlife conservation through presentations by several experts and through “Trading Posts.” Trading Posts are information booths staffed by Fish and Game employees to answer questions and to highlight the breadth of what Fish and Game does to manage all Idaho wildlife. They will be open throughout the summit weekend. Among the experts to speak at the summit is Shane Mahoney, an internationally recognized wildlife researcher, conservationist, hunter and speaker. Many
call Mahoney a modern-day Teddy Roosevelt, who is considered to be the father of modern wildlife conservation. Idaho’s population has tripled since a voters’ initiative 74 years ago established the way Fish and Game manages wildlife today. The challenges to wildlife have changed since 1938 as well, including increasing habitat loss, declining populations of sagegrouse and bull trout and more competition for available water. Though Idaho boasts a strong hunting and fishing culture, the revenue from license and tag fees is not enough to keep up with increasing demands on the agency that manages the state’s broad spectrum of fish and wildlife. Fish and Game Commission chairman Randy Budge recently said the agency “soon may approach a crossroads … when tough decisions have to be made.” Seating is limited at the seven sites, so participants must register to reserve a spot. Though registration is free, Fish and Game would accept any donations to help offset the costs for providing meals and beverages. For more about the Idaho Wildlife Summit or to register go to: fishandgame.idaho.gov/summit.
IONE – Selkirk track and field this year lettered nine athletes. In order to letter with Selkirk track and field, athletes are required to score 10 or more points throughout the season or qualify for districts or state. Points are awarded by the home team hosting a meet. The amount of points that are awarded is based on the athlete’s finishing position. First place gets 10 points, eight points for second place, six for third, five for fourth place, on down to one point awarded for an eighth place finish. This years letters were awarded to: Mike Haskins, Sean Huntsman, Josh Ross, Beau Taylor, Aley Curran, Emily Guthrie, Kathleen Huntsman, Georgie Shafer and Patricia Story. The top two point winners for the girls team were Shafer with 238 points and Guthrie with 41. For the boys, Taylor had 64
points and Ross had 35. Shafer was also recognized for her state performance, placing second overall in the 100-meter hurdles. Although the Rangers had a young team this year, head coach Susan Vermeulen said they were encouraged to set new personal records at each of their meets throughout the season. “PRs were broken at all meets, and every athlete should be proud of their success this year,” she said. “It has been an absolute pleasure and joy to work with the Selkirk Track and Field team this year and throughout my 10 years coaching at Selkirk,” said Vermeulen, who is moving to Canada. “I will miss coaching at Selkirk.” “Coach V” joked that the kids should wear head cams next year “so I can see you from across the border.”

Clarence Heckenlively Newport
Clarence Heckenlively of Newport, formerly of Oldtown, passed away peacefully in his sleep June 29. He was 85. Mr. Heckenlively was born in Heckenlively Anaheim, Calif., Sept. 7, 1926, the fourth of five children born to Charles Elmer Heckenlively and Edith Mann. His father moved the family to Ventura County in 1931, where he built the family home at 50 Valley Road in Oak View, a home that still stands today. After completing high school, Mr. Heckenlively joined the U.S. Navy in 1944. He served as gunner’s mate on the aircraft carrier USS Kearsarge for her maiden voyage and shakedown in the Atlantic. With his service complete and Honorable Discharge in hand, he returned to Ventura County in 1946, where he married Patricia Roberts in 1948. They had three children: Jill, Judith and Danny. After their divorce in 1954, Mr. Heckenlively married Marion Ramos in 1957. This union produced four boys: Steven, Chuck, Jim and Erik. He also raised Toni, Marion’s
daughter from a previous marriage. His working life was highlighted by 20 years of proud service with the Teamsters Union, driving a truck for Knudsen Dairy Products out of Montalvo, and another 20 years in management for Laura Scudder’s, a division of Borden Foods, in Ventura. Mr. Heckenlively retired in 1988, and he and Marion traded the hustle and bustle of Southern California for the peaceful serenity of Northern Idaho, where they settled in the community of Oldtown. After a fire destroyed the family home in 2009, they moved to Newport, where he enjoyed each and every moment in the peaceful community until his passing. His various hobbies throughout his life highlighted the diversity of his talents as an artist and craftsman. He enjoyed carpentry and woodworking; he studied early California history and was a collector of relics and artifacts on his many excursions through the deserts and ghost towns of Southern California and Nevada. An avid rock hound, he was a member of the Gem and Mineral Society of Ventura and produced many award-winning pieces of lapidary. He studied Native American history, and enjoyed fashioning replicas of the tools used by early Americans. He enjoyed riding motorcycles in the California desert, was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish, and was well into his 70s before discovering a newfound passion and talent for painting. Mr. Heckenlively will be best remembered for his devotion to his wife, Marion. Family and friends always knew he was never more than a phone call away, no matter the need. In addition to Marion, he is survived by his brother Larry; daughters Jill, Judith and Toni; sons Steven, Chuck, Jim and Erik; and 20 grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. Services will be private. For information call 509-671-7493. Sherman-Knapp Funeral Home in Newport is in charge of arrangements. Family and friends are invited to sign the online guestbook at www.shermanknapp.com.

Terry DuWayne Jay passed away June 17 at Deaconess Hospital in Spokane. He was 71 years old. Mr. Jay was born in 1940 in Pasco. He was preceded in death Jay by his wife, Linda, the love of his life. He was an avid outdoorsman and a veteran of the Coast Guard. He and Linda documented their life in the outdoors. “It’s like living in another world, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything,” she wrote. “There was no place he would rather be than in the woods fishing or hunting.” Mr. Jay loved restoring classic cars and collecting old records. He was a resident of Washington for the last 30 years. He is survived by a large family, including many grandchildren. His laugh will be missed, relatives said.
