Down River Days is fun for all ages BY DESIREÉ HOOD OF THE MINER

IONE – Down River Days came to Ione this past weekend, giving

hundreds of visitors and local residents the opportunity to shop at vendors, watch wake boarders perform and snowmobiles race across the Pend Oreille River.

The North Pend Oreille Valley Lions Club held train rides throughout the weekend, selling more than 1,100 tickets. At least one of the four train rides was

sold out. “It was the biggest and best Down River Days ever,” said SEE RIVER, 2A

NEWPORT – A former Pend Oreille County Sheriff deputy who was fired is requesting an appeal of his termination to the Pend Oreille County Civil Service Commission. The civil service commission will decide within 10 days of the July 25 hearing whether Cory Rosen can appeal. Rosen was fired June 27 after an internal investigation revealed he did not report that a female jail inmate told him a male inmate had masturbated in front of her in the county jail – a sex offense. The internal investigation also revealed he didn’t properly investigate a report of drug sales within the county jail.

That lack of follow through violated the terms of a last chance employment agreement, Pend Oreille County Sheriff Alan Botzheim, maintained, and he fired Rosen. Representatives from Teamsters Local 690 and the county appeared before the civil service commission Thursday, July 25, to make their argument for why Rosen should be allowed to appeal, despite language in the last chance agreement that said he could be fired “without opportunity for appeal,” if he violated the terms of the agreement. John Lee, an attorney representing Rosen, told the commission they were acting as arbitrators in an employment dispute. Many arbitrators won’t enforce last chance agreements that have language giving up the right of appeal, he said. They find that the words SEE DEPUTY, 2A

County, Tribe sign interlocal law enforcement agreement BY DON GRONNING OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – Kalispel Tribal police officers will be able to enforce state laws on reservation land starting Aug. 1, as a

result of an interlocal agreement signed between the county and the tribe. Before the agreement, crimes committed by non-Indians on the reservation were the responsibility of the Pend Oreille

County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Alan Botzheim said that meant when tribal police pulled someone over with a suspended license, a deputy SEE TRIBE, 2A

Powwow starts Aug. 2 BY DON GRONNING OF THE MINER

USK – The 38th annual Kalispel Powwow will take place Aug. 2-4, at the Powwow grounds in Usk. The event is open to the public and admission is free. In addition to dance and drum contests, there will be a buffalo barbecue, an all-Indian softball tournament, a Buffalo Fun Run and stick game tournaments, as well as a variety of food and other vendors. “The reason we’ve been putting this on is for the people to come enjoy what we are able to share,” said Francis Culooyah, the tribe’s culture program director.

The grand entry of dancers, drummers and other participants will begin at 7 p.m. Friday night, with registration starting at 4 p.m. There will be two grand entries Saturday, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. and 1 p.m. Sunday. All times are subject to change. There will be tens of thousands of dollars in prize money given away in the contests. The first place group in the drum contest will take home $10,000. There will be six places paid, with groups competing for $31,000 in prize money. Culooyah says the dancers alone will represent 45-50 tribes from the U.S. and Canada. “There will be people from B.C.

and Alberta, even some from Saskatchewan,” he said. Dancers will compete in 33 categories, from Golden Age for men and women 60 and older to junior boys’ Fancy Dancing for boys 7-12. The adult contests pay $1,000 for first, the teen contests pay $500 and the junior contests pay $300. There will be at least four places paid, with some categories paying five places. There will also be an adult and junior stick game tournament Saturday, Aug. 3. Registration for the adult stick game tournament will take place at 2 p.m. The winning team will take home $10,000, with the top five teams

|| Watch for divers on Diamond Lake

DIAMOND LAKE – Divers are preparing to due their annual survey of Diamond Lake for milfoil this week. Generally, the divers survey from the shoreline out to approximately 300 feet from the shore. Diver-down flags are used to identify a dive when it is in operation. The flags are red with a white diagonal line. Boaters should be cautious while boating and keep a sharp lookout and safe speed when traveling where dive flags are present. Maintain a distance of at least 200 feet from diver-down flags. Surveying will be conducted in several areas of the lake over the next several days. The Diamond Lake Improvement Association uses the results to determine if hand pulling or chemical treatments are needed. The proce-

would have to drop everything to come make the arrest. Now tribal police will be able to investigate and arrest people who aren’t tribal members for crimes committed on the reservation. Tribal officers are not commissioned through the Sheriff’s Office, Botzheim said, meaning they are not under his control and direction. They do have to meet the same standards as sheriff deputies, though, he said, including passing a background check and a lie detector test. The tribe also carries $5 million of liability insurance that covers the officers. There are 12 tribal officers, who work on the reservation in Usk and Airway Heights. According to Botzheim, changes in the law in 2008 provided for tribal police officers to be recognized and authorized to act as general authority Washington

peace officers, subject to certain requirements, those of which have all been met by the Kalispel Tribal Police Department. “Our Interlocal Law Enforcement Agreement will allow Kalispel Tribal Police Officers the ability to act as general authority peace officers within the boundaries of the Reservation,” Botzheim said. “This will include the ability to investigate and arrest non-Indians for crimes committed within the reservation. We believe this will greatly increase public safety on the reservation where Tribal Police are the first responders and ultimately this will increase the efficiency and effectiveness of both agencies.” The agreement does not authorize the Pend Oreille County Sheriff’s Office to assume any further jurisdiction on the reservation than what already exists, nor does it limit the sheriff’s existing au-

thority to enforce state law on the reservation. It does not commission Kalispel Tribal Police to act as peace officers off of the reservation unless requested by the sheriff. Tribal attorney Dave Bonga said the tribe is also working with Airway Heights and Spokane County on a similar agreement. The tribe has approached the federal government about enforcing federal laws on reservation land. Bonga said former Pend Oreille County Sheriff Tony Bamonte had a similar, if more informal agreement, with the tribe. “It was sort of a mutual aid agreement,” Bonga said. “This one is more specific.” The FBI will still investigate felonies involving Indian people, according to Pend Oreille County Prosecutor Tom Metzger. He said his office will prosecute crimes committed by non-Indian people on the reservation.

“without opportunity for appeal” were too broad, he said. Did it mean appealing to an appeals court? Did it mean appealing to the Sheriff? “The heart of the dispute is what is waived,” Lee said. “The investigation is not waived. Just cause needs to be met.” Kevin Wesley, who represents the county, countered that the county wouldn’t have agreed to continue Rosen’s employment without Rosen waiving the right to appeal. He said Rosen engaged in conduct that warranted termination and the last chance agreement was a way for Rosen to continue to work. Rosen and the union agreed to it voluntarily, he said. Without the waiver of appeal, the county would not have gotten anything out of the agreement, he said. Lee declined to comment after the meeting. Both Rosen and Botzheim were present for the hearing but neither spoke. Rosen and his union representative had signed a last chance employment agreement with the Sheriff’s Office Feb. 22. In the agreement, Rosen and the union agreed to drop any appeals of discipline actions taken against Rosen for actions that happened between Dec. 16, 2012, and Jan. 17, 2013, in exchange for continued employment. The agreement also held that Rosen could be fired “without opportunity for appeal” if future allegations of untruthfulness, insubordination, performance of duty, neglect of duty, prompt response to orders, conflict between members, courtesy, unbecoming conduct or disrespectful behavior towards a superior were upheld. The agreement was to last two years. The event that violated the agreement occurred last April, when Rosen was assigned to a drug investigation in the county jail. Four female inmates were found apparently intoxicated. Ac-

tournaments but Culooyah can remember the old days when it was straight up gambling. “I can remember this one time there was a big non-tournament game between a guy who had married into the tribe and this other guy,” Culooyah says. “They had $12,000 in the pot and they were gambling for other things too, like blankets and horses.”

cording to documents filed for the appeal, one of the female inmates said another smuggled in more than 20 Clonazapam pills in her bra. The inmate accused of smuggling the pills denied it. According to the internal investigation, the inmates gave conflicting accounts of what happened. One of the four women said the inmate who brought the pills in offered to sell a couple for $100. The woman who allegedly brought in the pills then put them in a hole in the bed frame and went to sleep. While she was sleeping, her cellmate took the pills and three of the women crushed and snorted the pills. When they were observed under the influence in the morning, Rosen was called in to investigate. A search of their cell turned up a batch of fermenting fruit cocktail being made into alcohol, a cell phone, one Clonazapam pill and two pieces of wire, one of which was sharpened. One of the female inmates told Rosen that she had retrieved the iPhone from her personal belongings when an unidentified corrections officer allowed her access to them. Another of the female inmates was taken to Newport Hospital for treatment of a drug overdose. She later told Rosen the two pieces of wire came from her bra and she used the sharpened one to cut string, eyebrow hair and makeup. Another of the four inmates told Rosen that when she was in a holding cell, a male inmate moved the covering of her cell window and masturbated in front of her and propositioned her. According to the documents supplied by the Sheriff’s Office, Rosen didn’t document or investigate the allegation, even though the woman made a written statement and was taped making the allegation. According to the documents, when the results of Rosen’s drug investigation were turned over to the prosecutor for charges, prosecutors noticed a sex offense had been reported in the inmate statement but not investigated. They met with

Culooyah said this may be the 38th annual powwow, but he can remember a powwow his mother sponsored at the end of the Usk bridge in the early 1950s. “It lasted longer than a weekend,” he remembers. “I think it went for something like 10 days.” He has heard of another powwow held on Frog Island, a peninsula on the river near the powwow grounds, in the 1930s.

Botzheim and Undersheriff Grant Sirevog to inform them of that and also to make sure they were aware that a serious security breach may have occurred at the jail, as weapons, a cell phone and drugs were discovered. An internal investigation found that not only was the sex offense not documented or charged, Rosen’s investigation of drugs and alcohol in the jail was incomplete and that there was conflicting information about the event. The last chance employment agreement was issued Feb. 22, the same day Rosen was suspended 10 days without pay for a confrontation with his sergeant, for not adding a line to a police report that he was ordered to add and for turning in a half hour overtime for travel to in-county training. The Sheriff’s Office doesn’t pay for travel to in-county training. Rosen was also issued a letter of reprimand that same day for not getting a photo taken for a new identification card. He was also issued a letter of oral counseling for failing to sign Botzheim’s marijuana acknowledgement memo. The memo reminded Sheriff’s Office employees that even thought marijuana use was now legal in the state it was illegal under federal law and employees were prohibited from using it, including use of medical marijuana. The notice of termination also included mention of a Nov. 19 incident of a negligent discharge of his rifle in his patrol vehicle, resulting in shooting a hole in the roof. Rosen received a one-day suspension for that. Rosen has been with the Sheriff’s Office since May 1, 2006. He has served as a director of the Newport School District board, where he served with civil service commission chairman Jim Brewster. Rosen was also the deputy who fired a taser in a March 2011 incident that left a man critically injured when he fell and broke his neck after being hit. The man died a week later. The county is facing a $10 million claim over the death.

Man sentenced for truck theft BY DON GRONNING OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – A man who crawled into a home through a doggie door, rummaged around in the kitchen, took keys and then stole a truck one night while people were sleeping in the home was sentenced to a drug offender sentencing alternative when he appeared before Pend Oreille County Superior Court Judge Allen Nielson Thursday, July 25. James M. Erikson, 30, had pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal trespass, theft of a motor vehicle and reckless driving. Deputy prosecutor Jeremy Schmidt and defense attorney Barrett Scudder came to an agreement where they would recommend the DOSA sentence in which Erikson would serve three to six months in

an alcohol treatment center in exchange for the guilty plea. “He was drunk, he entered the home and took the keys and the truck,” Schmidt said. Erikson’s criminal history included convictions in Snohomish County for malicious mischief, third degree assault and taking a motor vehicle without permission convictions from 2001-2002. He also has a 2005 conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Schmidt said the victim agreed with the recommendation. “He wishes Mr. Erikson good luck,” Schmidt said. Schmidt said that if Erikson didn’t complete the alcohol treatment program, he would be facing 14 months in prison. Scudder said that Erikson had been out of substantial trouble with the law for 10 years. He

said stealing the truck was related to alcohol. “He drank excessively,” Scudder said. “He didn’t know what was going on.” Scudder said that Erikson has three children and was essentially a stay-at-home dad and was needed at home. Erikson said he needed treatment for alcoholism. “I have an alcohol problem for sure,” he said. Nielson agreed. “Your behavior was crazy,” he said, noting Erikson had a blood alcohol count of .169 when he was arrested, which was twice the limit allowed for driving. As part of the plea arrangement, driving under the influence was reduced to reckless driving. Nielson agreed to go along with the sentence. Erikson will pay $1,600 in fees.

PUD employee named to state board BY DESIREÉ HOOD OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – Mark “Bubba” Scott, Pend Oreille Public Utility District (PUD) manager of water systems, was recently appointed to Washington State Public Works Board as the Washington Public Utility District Association’s representative. Scott had been filling in for Doug Quinn, the former state representative. Gov. Jay Inslee named him to the four-year position July 1. The state board sets policies and approves funding for projects submitted by other PUDs and other local governments to the Public Works Trust Fund (PWTF). This is Washington’s largest program for improvement of infrastructure, including water and wastewater systems, roads and bridges, and solid waste and recycling facilities. The PWTF trust was founded in 1985 and the Public Works Board has approved more than 1,800 low-interest loans for more than $3 billion in projects. This includes 86 loans worth more than $118.9 million for PUD water and sewer projects. Scott has used this fund to

SPOKANE – Inland Power and Light is introducing “Operation Round Up,” which will provide financial support to individuals and organizations within the 13 counties served by the utility, including Bonner County, Idaho. This program allows Inland Power members to voluntarily “round up” their electric bills to the nearest dollar each month. “Small change that changes lives,” is the foundation that Operation Round Up is built upon. This is a program based on generating and collecting charitable funds to improve the quality of life for the community through individual, family and nonprofit organization donations. Operation Round Up gathers voluntary contributions from Inland Power members enrolled in the program. Their monthly electric bills

will be rounded up to the nearest dollar each month for an average of $6 per year and put into a donation fund. If every member of Inland Power participated in Operation Round Up, an estimated $225,000 could be generated annually to help local individuals and charities throughout 13 counties in eastern Washington and northern Idaho. The program will have a foundation board comprised of five Inland Power members who will review applications to determine the most appropriate and best use of any funds generated. Members who wish to participate in this program simply need to fill out the form enclosed in their August bill, sign up online, email or call Inland Power. Applications are also available online at inlandpower.com for those wishing to apply for local assistance.

Newport School District passes budget NEWPORT – The board of directors for the Newport School District unanimously passed an $11.025 general fund budget at a meeting Monday, July 29. The district anticipates general fund revenues of $11.141 million and expenditures of $11.025 million. The capital services budget anticipates expenditures of $150,000, the debt service fund plans on spending $557,210 and the Associated Student Body fund plans on spending $262,742. The budget is based on an enrollment of the equivalent 1,016 full time students, the lowest in years. Last year the district had the equivalent of 1,058 students. The district plans on the equiva-

lent of 48.46 full time teachers next year, compared to 49.24 FTEs the previous year. The district is budgeting for 24.263 classified staff and 4.5 administrators. District business manager Tom Crouch said the district used a beginning balance of $250,000, although that figure is actually closer to $285,00, the same number the district had last year, he said. The beginning balance serves as the district’s reserve. Board chairwoman April Owen said the board was trying to build the fund to 10 percent of expenditures, about $1.1 million. She pointed out the monthly payroll is more than $600,000.

Commission to consider waterfowl seasons OLYMPIA – The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission will consider adopting 2013-14 hunting seasons for migratory waterfowl during a public meeting Aug. 2-3 in Olympia. A public hearing is also scheduled to discuss several proposals to amend state wildlife interaction rules to incorporate measures from Washington’s Wolf Conservation and Management Plan and implement 2013 legislation.

State waterfowl seasons proposed by WDFW are similar to those adopted last year. The general duck season would be open for 107 days – from Oct. 12-16 and from Oct. 19-Jan. 26. A special youth hunting weekend is also proposed for Sept. 21-22. As in previous years, goose hunting seasons will vary by management areas across the state, but most would open in mid-October and run through late January.

Community events about life

fter last weekend’s explosion of community celebrations from Priest River’s Timber Days to north Pend Oreille County’s Down River Days, it is apparent that people around here enjoy life. The fantastic part of this realization is that since these events have been going on for decades people have been enjoying life here for a long time – generation after generation. The other star of this revelation is that the origins of these events were to celebrate the daily work that was available to the community members because of where they lived. Timber Days was obviously to celebrate the economic prosperity that harvesting timber and manufacturing of wood products brought to the community. Down River Days historically celebrated the mining and other natural resource based jobs in that area. Without them there would be nothing and the people knew it. That was reason to celebrate each year. Today, the reasons for the celebrations aren’t as obvious and maybe a few other good reasons are rightfully included. But we believe the spirits of the loggers, miners, sawmill workers and others working to support them from years past and today are still driving our communities to prosperity. There might not be as many of them but they are the fabric of life here today and they will be in the future. That fabric is strong and beautiful. And that is reason to celebrate. --FJW

Prince William and Princess Catherine welcomed baby boy George into the world July 22. The royal birth made headlines the world over for days. Do you think the royal birth is newsworthy? Yes. People are interested, whether they should be or not. And, it’s actually positive news people can focus on. No. It’s ridiculous so much attention is put on the royal family when there are far more important things to focus on. Personally I wasn’t interested, but I don’t mind other people caring.

|| Elected officials showing entitlement mentality To the editor, There is a solution to the entitlement mentality of some of our elected officials. That solution is voting. If Botzheim, McCroskey, Miller, Ownbey and Nichols are not satisfied with their salary, which they knew when they ran for office, we need to simply vote for their opponent in the next election. With the county government in a struggle to provide service within their financial means, we need to elect officials who are committed to public service and not just financial gain. Several elections back we were able to remove a commissioner who got greedy. I believe we can do it with these folks by remembering to vote. Jerry Larson Newport

Quality of jobs don’t matter To the editor: Years ago, in his book “The General Theory,” John Maynard Keynes famously wrote: “If the Treasury were to fill old bottles with bank-notes, bury them at suitable depths in coal mines … and leave it to private enterprise on well-tried principles of laissez-faire to dig the notes up again … there need be no more unemployment.” All that mattered to Mr. Keynes was that people were employed doing something … Anything! The quality of employment didn’t matter. The Fed is now forced to speak from both sides of his mouth – on one hand suggesting that they will “taper,” and on the other hand that the Fed is “by no means on a preset course.” This most likely means they have no plan or exit strategy and are probably just making it up as they go along. The Fed is now printing $85 billion every month. Roughly $1 trillion annually! So if they really want to move the needle, I propose that Mr. Bernanke cut out the middleman (i.e. the “economy”) and hire workers himself. It would take a special workforce of roughly 1 million people, including supervisors and support staff, in order to count the amount of money that Mr. Bernanke is creating. This assumes that these folks count eight hours per day, with two weeks of paid vacation and ten federal holidays. This would be a cushy financial sector job. At $50,000 per worker, Mr. Bernanke would be adding substantially to the economy … not to mention really moving the needle on the unemployment rate. To do what you ask? Simple: To count the amount of money created by the Fed. You assign everyone a range of numbers and have them count as Mr. Bernanke prints. -Judson Lightsey Newport

LE T T E R S

Abortion is not the government’s business To the editor: The morality of abortion is not for the government to decide and using the government to force beliefs or behavior on citizens is wrong. You can oppose abortion without involving the government. I certainly oppose it unless dire medical circumstances present no alternative. Republicans are passing laws that make the fetus a ward of the state after 20 weeks in the mother’s womb. So my question is who is going to pay for the government to police and enforce these intrusive laws? Where are you going to lock-up women who don’t want to be pregnant? How do you force a woman to complete a pregnancy she doesn’t want to have? What means do you have to care for the child after it’s born? For example, how many local anti-abortion letter writers are willing to adopt a fetal alcohol baby, much less pay for its lifelong institutional care? Now if you are actually pro-life, you would be treating pregnant teens like queen bees. Instead you want to punish them for their lack of “personal responsibility.” Their punishment is to complete the pregnancy even if it takes their life. Once born, you have little interest in defective or problem babies. You oppose social aid and don’t want the government to pay for medical care. The crown jewel is that you oppose making contraception available to sexually active citizens thus causing more unwanted pregnancies. I can find no line in our Constitution that requires the government to regulate sex or reproduction. People who want to use the government to force their beliefs on other citizens are on a fool’s errand. Haven’t we learned that with our inability to stop drugs, alcohol or smoking? What’s even more foolish is that some people think that the government can regulate sex by withholding contraception and medical procedures. -Pete Scobby Newport

Signs have no bearing on current election To the editor: I find it utterly remarkable that four years after the last Pend Oreille County District 2 commissioner’s race a party official is still trying to gain political capital by making an issue of campaign signs that, when originally put up, did not have a party preference on them. The circumstances of this oversight were explained long ago and do not bear repeating but the fact that Mr. Boyd, the “fact finder” and apparently the self-appointed “sign police,” could not even

||

spell my name correctly in his letter, should speak volumes to the puerility of his statements in general. I am not running for commissioner and have absolutely no affiliation with either candidate. So what in the name of all that is holy do four-year-old signs have to do with anything in the current commissioner’s race? Seriously. My time in politics and my experience with the levels to which the opposition would sink to gain advantage were a lesson I will always remember and it is just this kind of politics that has sickened the American people to the point that almost none of us believe in or trust our current elected representatives anymore. You would think that a small community composed of friends and neighbors would be above such petty behavior and that the character of the candidates themselves and their values would be the most important factors in deciding how we cast our votes. These kinds of tactics represent the worst in politics and if I thought you capable of the emotion, Mr. Boyd, I would tell you that you should be ashamed of yourself but I know it would be a waste of paper and ink. Just like your letter. -Brad Stratton Newport

Got oil? To the editor: A few weeks ago, like most of us in this congressional district, I received a newsletter from Congresswoman Kathy McMorris Rodgers. The subject of the newsletter was the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline. I also have seen numerous articles on the proposed pipeline that, after reading, cause me a great deal of confusion since they somewhat

refute what was conveyed in the newsletter. The newsletter strongly supports the pipeline since its construction would “lessen our dependence on foreign oil.” Since we live so close to Canada, I always knew in some manner this was not a foreign country and more than just our northerly neighbor (have we added a 51st star to the flag?). Therefore, oil produced in northern Alberta is not foreign oil, it is just Canadian oil. Also, Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers voted nay on House Amendment 75 that would have required all oil transported through the pipeline be used in the U.S. In other words, the nonforeign oil from Canada, under the proposed amendment, can be consumed by us right here in Newport. Since Alberta is “uphill” from the Texas port that would receive the oil via the pipeline, why require that the oil be used in the U.S.? Simple geography tells me the congresswoman’s nay vote was correct for no other reason than gravity. Oil, like water, runs downhill and this will make it easier to load onto tankers at the Texas coast. It can then be processed outside of the U.S. If the oil were required to be used in the U.S., this would require pumps and inhibit potential profits to the oil companies. And oil companies are a large contributor to the congresswoman, which would have a negative impact on future political campaigns. With this reasoning, I can fully understand why the congresswoman gets to stand close to that nice man from Ohio at press conferences. -Robert W. Schutte Newport

County seeks people to serve on commissions NEWPORT – Pend Oreille County has several volunteer openings available on the Board of Equalization, Planning Commission, the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and Library District board. There are two openings on the three-member Board of Equalization. The board hears appeals brought by taxpayers on matters of valuation or exemption status and has the power and responsibility to unilaterally equalize the value of property in the county. There are two seats available on the nine-seat planning commission. This commission is charged with current and long range planning functions. They meet monthly and frequently bi-monthly. There are two openings on

the library board. The Library Board of Trustees is the policymaking body of Pend Oreille County Library District, which is a junior taxing district. It is governed by a five member board and administered by a library director appointed by the board. There are two openings on the three member Weed Board. The Weed Board develops policy, and adopts the county weed list, which identifies mandatory weed control. It also reviews and oversees the annual budget and holds public hearings on new weed policy. There is one opening on the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board of seven volunteers. The board works to evaluate, plan and develop county park facilities and recreation opportunities.

Insect stings: If you’ve never had a bad reaction it doesn’t mean you won’t Several tips to lower the risk of bee, wasp and hornet stings OLYMPIA – To many, pesky bee stings typically only cause temporary throbbing. That doesn’t mean you’ll never have a bad reaction. Public health officials warn that having one type of reaction after a sting doesn’t mean a person will always have the same reaction next time. While it’s crucial for people who’ve had an allergic response to avoid the insect of concern, a previously non-reactive person can develop sensitivity at any

time. Insect stings can cause different symptoms, ranging from brief pain to a severe allergic reaction. First-aid kits should contain an antihistamine to help prepare for an unexpected serious reaction to a bite or sting. There are several steps one can take to lower the risk of bee, hornet, wasp and other insect stings: • Avoid insect encounters: slowly move away; don’t wave your arms or swat at them. • Cover exposed skin and wear shoes. • Don’t use products with

Local businesses pass alcohol checks Disabled hunters travel new paths NEWPORT – The Washington State Liquor Control Board was in Pend Oreille County July 11, giving nine random businesses an Alcohol Compliance Check and all nine passed. The nine businesses that passed the compliance checks are The Falls Market in Metaline Falls, Paradise Liquors in Ione, Porter’s Plaza in Ione, Food Court in Ione, the Panther Pit Stop in Cusick, Safeway in Newport, South Shore Store at Diamond Lake, Whitley Oil in Newport,

and Merv’s Mercantile in Newport. Lieutenant Robert Reynolds said that more than 80 checks a month are done out of the Spokane Enforcement Office. Officers are required to do 10 alcohol checks per month. Each check involves a minor who is not over the age of 20 and one half years old, but over 18. They are paired with an officer and taken to the different stores. A store passes if the minor leaves without alcohol. All of the nine businesses in Pend Oreille County passed the check and did not sell alcohol to the minor.

The minors are screened and trained before they are allowed to go into the field with an officer. They use their real identification when trying to buy the alcohol. “There are no citations as long as they don’t sell to the kid,” Reynolds said. “A no sale is a no sale.” If a business fails and sells a minor alcohol, they could be charged a fine of up to $5,000 or one-year in jail, Reynolds said. “If you are not 100 percent sure that the person is of age, don’t sell,” Reynolds said. “You never know when we are coming.”

Keep food stored to prevent wildlife, human conflicts COLVILLE – As summer recreation moves into full swing, forest officials reminded visitors about proper food storage practices to reduce the potential for human-wildlife conflicts. The Colville National Forest has had a food storage order in effect since 1989. The requirements described in the order apply to all Colville National Forest System lands and campgrounds, including dispersed camping areas. Bears are very intelligent animals. They will repeatedly revisit a site where they have obtained food in the past. Over

time, an animal that has found food at a campsite may learn to associate the presence of humans with a food reward. Such bears tend to lose their fear of people and become increasingly bold and aggressive. Usually, these animals end up being destroyed by state wildlife authorities. The old saying “a fed bear is a dead bear” is all too often true, according to Forest Service officials. The Colville National Forest requires campers to store all food, beverages, garbage, and other attractants in an approved, animal-resistant container or

hard-sided vehicle when their camp is left unattended, and at night when they are asleep. Food should never be brought into a tent. Hikers camping away from their vehicles should suspend their food from a tree branch at least ten feet off the ground and four feet from the tree trunk. Forest visitors are often surprised to learn that “other attractants” means anything that has a scent such as candles, soap, deodorant, or cosmetics. If you can smell it, it could attract a bear. Pet food, un-cleaned barbecues, and garbage are all powerful wildlife attractants.

allergic reaction (anaphylaxis). Signs of anaphylaxis include skin reactions in parts of the body other than the sting area. Hives, itching, and flushed or pale skin are almost always present. People may also have difficulty breathing; swelling of the throat and tongue; a weak and rapid pulse; nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea; dizziness or fainting; or a loss of consciousness. Any of these symptoms should be treated as a medical emergency. If you have a prescribed epinephrine injector (EpiPen, Twinject), use it immediately as directed by your health care provider. And get medical care immediately if you’ve been swarmed by bees and have been stung multiple times. This is especially important for children, older adults, and people who have breathing or heart problems. Remember, most insects are

usually not aggressive and play a very beneficial role in nature. By taking a few precautions most stings can be avoided. The Department of Health website has more information about avoiding insect stings and the role of insects in our lives. The Mayo Clinic website also has information on symptoms and treatment of insect stings.

COLVILLE – The Colville National Forest, in partnership with Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, announced the 2013 hunting season routes designated for Disabled Hunter Access and the addition of two non-permanent access platforms to help disabled hunters see over brush. The 2013 Disabled Hunter Access (DHA) routes include Middle Fork Calispell Creek in Pend Oreille County for 10.6 miles of access, Renshaw in Pend Oreille County for 2.8 miles, Betty Creek in Ferry County for a 12.4 miles, Boundary Mountain in Ferry County for 7.8 miles, Brewer Mountain of Stevens County for 2.4 miles and Mitchell of Stevens County for 7.8 miles. The DHA was established to provide high quality hunting opportunities on the Colville National Forest for hunters with disabilities. The program allows motorized access into a gated road where other hunters must walk in. The overall project is a cooperative effort between the CNF, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the Inland Northwest Wildlife Council (INWC). The program does not provide special motorized access to all areas on the CNF, just access to the specially designated roads otherwise closed to motor vehicles. DHA hunters, and one of their two permitted assistants, may harvest any game in season for which they have purchased licenses. Permitted hunters may use the weapons allowed any local hunter for the season, such as a modern firearm, black powder and archery. The INWC has supplied the material and labor needed to construct and place four, six-foot by eight-foot, non-permanent wheelchair accessible

platforms and associated ramps along the routes. The platforms will be placed adjacent to routes in areas where thick brush or topography limits the ability for disabled hunters to see game. Two platforms will be placed on the Betty Creek route this year and the other two platforms will be placed on the Brewer Mountain and Ruby Creek routes at a later time. “We are very excited to be able to expand on this popular program by adding two platforms and ramps that will help improve the experience for hunters with disabilities,” said Sandy Mosconi, DHA program manager for the Colville National Forest. To participate in the program, hunters with disabilities must have a state issued disabled hunters permit and must register and sign-in at any one of the six Colville National Forest

offices prior to hunting. Registration and sign-in begins in early August at any Colville National Forest office. Hunters will be asked to provide information about their party and will receive an access permit, maps, and other pertinent information. Hunter information packets will also be available early August at all Colville National Forest offices. Information is also available online at www.fs.usda.gov/ colville and http://wdfw.wa.gov/ accessibility/road_access.html. For more information on applying for an access permit, contact one of these U.S. Forest Service offices after Aug. 1. Newport Office: 315 North Warren, Newport, WA 99156 509447-7300.

Selkirk district approves budget Full day kindergarten now offered BY DESIREÉ HOOD OF THE MINER

IONE – The Selkirk School Board approved the 2013-14 budget and increased staffing to accommodate full-day kindergarten July 29, at a scheduled budget hearing. The budget is down more than $200,000 from last year, totaling $3.748 million. However, with enrollment staying the same at 221 full time equivalent (FTE) students because of the addition of fullday kindergarten, the numbers even out. They have increased the number of kindergarteners by more than eight students. The budget shows a positive ending balance of $1,717. Each kindergarten student used to count as half enrollment because they were part time. Now each kindergartener counts as 1.0 FTE student. This helps the school district because it is paid a certain amount of money per FTE stu-

dent by the state. Small school districts such as Selkirk typically budget on about 10 fewer students than they actually anticipate in order to account for those unpredicted moves and student losses. Superintendent Nancy Lotze said the class sizes will range from 10 students to 28 students per class, depending on the grade level. The school district hired a new counselor and extended the hours of some teachers to accommodate the changes. No cost of living increases were given. The Selkirk School District is hiring three new coaches, the head high school volleyball coach, assistant high school volleyball coach and the head junior high football coach. The district is currently accepting applications for the positions that would start at the end of August. Classes will begin Sept. 4 for grades 1-12, and Sept. 9 for kindergarten.

But the best way to ensure economic stability and continued growth is to remain prudent, cautious and responsible in how we allocate every one of those taxpayer dollars,” Otter said. “Our state agencies already are working on their budget proposals for next year, and I will be working with the Legislature in the coming months toward a clear understanding of our best path forward together.”

Chamber hires membership director Search on for new board members BY MICHELLE NEDVED OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – In a departure from standard operations, the Greater Newport Area Chamber of Commerce hired a membership director and will no longer be seeking Brooks an executive director. Karine Brooks of Newport begins her position this week. President Steve Shumski said since the departure of executive director Valorie Hein in

March, various duties have been divided up between board members and the visitor center operations given to another group. They decided the board members wanted to continue operating as they have been and created instead the membership director position. The chamber is also on the hunt for two board members. Jason Thompson resigned as Newport School District superintendent and moved out of the area. Barb Smith, who is a board member and chamber treasurer, is planning to move to the west side of the state in the fall. Shumski said the chamber put together a nomination

committee to find replacements for Thompson and Smith. The committee includes Rob Owen, Mike Manus and Mark Zorica. Their recommendations will be discussed at the chamber’s board meeting next week. Brooks will split her time between current chamber members and recruiting new members. It is a paid position but there are no set hours. Instead, she will be visiting 10 businesses a week, to make sure the chamber is supporting its members in all means possible, and to recruit new businesses to the chamber. Brooks, and her husband Newport Councilman Sam

Brooks, have lived in Newport for nearly 10 years. She retired from Ben Franklin last year and Shumski convinced her to come out of retirement for the new job. “It sounded like something I would enjoy doing,” Brooks said. It’s not a set 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. job, but rather she can work her own schedule. This will allow her to continue to care for her 89-year-old father, a resident at River Mountain Village. Brooks worked as a dental assistant in the 1980s, but was promoted to the front desk as the dentist’s PR person. She spoke Spanish and enjoyed people, she said.

Law gets tough on boating under the influence OLYMPIA – Boating under the influence laws got a bit tougher in Washington over the weekend. Governor Jay Inslee signed the boating safety bill (Senate Bill 5437) in May, a three-part bill that changes Washington’s boating safety laws and gets tough on boaters operating under the influence. The law went into effect July 28. Most notably, the bill strengthens Washington’s boating under the influence (BUI) law by making the penalty for BUI a gross misdemeanor punishable by a maximum fine of $5,000 and 364 days in jail. Additionally, the law now allows for implied consent, which means an officer can require a boat operator to take a breath or blood test if the officer believes the operator is boating under the influence. If the operator refuses, he/she could be issued a $1,000 civil infraction. “Washington has a long history of being a maritime state. We

need to keep boating safe and fun, and this legislation will help us do that. I’m delighted that by working with our state partners and boating stakeholders, we were able to develop legislation that everyone could agree to,” said Don Hoch, Washington State Parks director. “The cultural, economic and recreational significance of Washington state waterways can’t be overemphasized. Likewise, neither can boating safety. The passage of this measure provides law enforcement with additional tools and strengthens our commitment to limiting tragedies on waterways,” said Bruce Bjork, chief of police for the Department of Fish and Wildlife, an agency that played a key role in writing and promoting the legislation. Lastly, the law gives marine law enforcement officers the ability to hold negligent or reckless boaters accountable and the authority to issue citations for vessel accidents

they did not witness. Now, when an officer is investigating a vessel accident, like a vessel-to-vessel collision, and it’s determined a boat operator caused the accident by breaking a boating safety law, the officer can arrest the operator for criminal violations or issue a citation for an infraction. “This is a great change and something we’ve needed for a long time. We’ve had this authority on land, but we lacked it on the water. I think this is really going to help us educate boaters about the importance of the boating rules of the road,” said Ed Holmes, Mercer Island police chief and president of the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs. According to State Parks data, alcohol is a factor in 30 percent of boating fatalities. The law change was intended to deter BUI by increasing the penalty and introducing implied consent in the form of a monetary penalty – not

tied to the driver’s license. Other changes to the law include the following: • Testing language consistent with driving under the influence (DUI) procedures: The statute was updated to reference the breath and blood testing procedures used in DUI cases. These procedures have been thoroughly tested in court. • Marijuana references added: The statute was updated with marijuana references that mirror language in Initiative 502, which made the recreational use of marijuana legal. • Test refusal is not admissible in court: The statute makes it clear that a boater’s refusal to submit to either a breath or blood test cannot be used as evidence in a court of law. • Recreational vessel rentals: The statue makes it clear that rented vessels must have all safety equipment, be properly registered and meet all other state requirements.

Almost half of Washington drownings happen in rivers and streams OLYMPIA – Enjoying Washington and Idaho’s waters can be one of the highlights of the summer, yet it can also be dangerous, as recent drowning cases have shown. Analysis by Washington state health officials of recent reported drowning deaths show most in our state happen in summer months, and almost half of the 100 deaths a year occur in rivers and streams. Frigid temperatures caused by

icy mountain runoff are among the reasons these types of waters are so dangerous. Cold water can affect even strong swimmers’ muscles and nervous system within 10 minutes, overriding strength and endurance. Fast moving currents can also be treacherous. Logs, branches and bushes can snag or tip rafts and inner tubes and hold a person under water. In addition to life vests, peo-

ple in swift creeks or rivers should be wary of where they put their feet. A foot jammed between rocks in a creek with a strong current can push a person underwater. The highest drowning numbers are among teenage and young adult males. An inexperienced swimmer might intend to cool off by wading, but may step off an unseen ledge and quickly be in over their head.

Call for help if you see someone in trouble. Then find something to reach out to them with or throw them a lifeline. If you decide to go in the water to help, bring something with you to help keep you both afloat. People who drown often do so silently and without notice. Taking the proper precautions is the best way to ensure that a fun summer outing doesn’t turn into a tragedy.

FOR THE RECORD

O B I T UA R I E S

Janie Ruth Clift Las Vegas

Janie Ruth Clift of Las Vegas, Nev., passed away July 16. She was 64. Mrs. Clift was born June 2, 1949, in Helena, Ark., to the late Henry Clift Clarence and Martha Jane Campbell. She was the youngest of three children and lived part of her childhood in Arkansas and later moved to California where she graduated from Mater Dei High School in 1967. She went on to attend Golden West College and the University of Irvine and graduated with a degree in nursing. She married her first husband, John Hutchins, and had two daughters, JoAnna and Joy. She worked as a Psychiatric Technician at Fairview State Hospital working with disabled and mentally challenged children for 21 years before relocating to Priest River. It is here where she showed her tenacity and true grit by working in the sawmill pulling 2x4s on the chain. She later moved back to California to continue her nursing career until 1992, when she married Tom, her husband of 22 years. They relocated to Las Vegas, and became the business owners of N.A.C. Electric, Inc. Some of Mrs. Clift’s highlights in life were receiving a standing ovation at her first piano recital in 1959, being awarded employee of the year while nursing in the hospital, being mother of the year in her daughter’s Christian school in 1978, bowling a high game of 289 in her bowling league, dancing and socializing with Sonny and Cher at the Sahara in the late 70’s, meeting one of her favorite country western singers, Mel McDaniel in 1973 and having several of her writings and poems published throughout her life with her best known poem, “A Mother’s Prayer” winning several awards and being published in four well known books. Mrs. Clift loved to sew and was known for her creative and fun sock monkeys and personalized quilts. She loved to garden, play the piano, write poetry, sing crazy funny songs, dance the two-step to any country western song she heard and watch every CSI episode on TV. She loved to cook and was well known for her spaghetti and fried chicken. Her love and dedication to her animals was unsurpassed and people often commented that her animals lived and ate better than most humans. Mrs. Clift reached out to others in more ways than one, family said. She was not only a financial supporter of many organizations but a volunteer to many throughout the years. Some of her favorites included the Humane Society, the Disabled Veterans, St. Jude, The Wild Horse Foundation, The Greyhound Rescue and so many others. The week before her death she was riding in the car with her daughter when all of a sudden at a stoplight, Mrs. Clift jumped from the truck and ran over and gave a homeless man her lunch they had just bought minutes before. She cared for many two legged and four-legged critters of every kind. Though her accomplishments and highlights might seem enough, it was her love for her family for which she will be remembered most. If you heard it once, you heard it a million times, her most precious gifts in life were her two beautiful daughters and if you weren’t tired of hearing about them, when her precious grandson, Noah, entered the world, she was sure God had blessed her far beyond her dreams. She raised her girls and bestowed upon her grandson her fun-loving spirit. It wasn’t the material things they will remember her for. It was her free, easy-going spirit, her laughter, her hugs, and her humor they will forever miss. The funny songs, having backwards day, learning to play jacks, hopscotch and using an empty paper towel holder for a microphone and singing at the top of their lungs are just a few. Mrs. Clift was known for waking her girls up in the middle of the night to go out for hot fudge sundaes or just dance in the rain. Though her fun, loving spirit for life is something they will forever treasure it is her love for God they will forever cherish. Her unwavering faith and commitment to prayer is the most precious gift she has given her family and friends. “It is because of this gift that we know she is with Heavenly Father and because of that, we have peace in knowing we will someday be together again,”

they said. Mrs. Clift is survived by her husband, Tom Clift of Las Vegas; daughters, JoAnna and her husband Jeff Jordan of Deer Park, and Joy and her husband Dennis Nelson of Medical Lake, Wash.; her grandson, Noah John Jordan; sister, Mary and her husband Glenn Finley of Lake Havasu, Ariz.; brother, Clyde Campbell of Santa Rosa, Calif.; step-daughters, Amber and Heather Clift of Florida; three grandchildren by marriage and/or adoption, David Romine, Kimberlee Jordan and Jordan Clift; sistersin-law, Beverly Hutchins and Jenny (and Richard) Monroe all of Priest River; brothers-in-law, Rob (and Tammy) Clift, Danny Clift, Gary Clift all of California; nieces and nephews, Rick (and Wendy), Rhonda, Sandy (and Dean), Kim (and Carey), Robin, Deanne (Craig), Kristal, Marissa, Charles, and Bobby; friends, Jackie Russell, Dona Westley, Tania Saba, Donna Bretthauer, Jory, Leah and too many others to list. She is preceded in death by her father, Henry Clarence Campbell; mother, Martha Jane Campbell (Stobaugh); step-fathers, Lupe Gutierrez and Jim Burrus; sister-in-law, Shirley Hutchins; brother-in-laws, Clint and Sterling Hutchins and nephew, Sterling Jr. (Bounce).
