Storm leaves damage, death in wake

Man killed when tree falls on tent, lightning strikes house, hundreds of downed trees BY DON GRONNING OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – A line of thunderstorms moved through eastern Washington and north Idaho Sunday night and early Monday morning, Aug. 25-26, leaving a wake of destruction. In Pend Oreille County, about 3,000 people were without power, one person was killed, a home was set on fire by a lightning strike and there were hundreds of downed trees throughout area, at least one of which fell on a home. Dan Reijonen and his family

were home in the central part of the Pend Oreille County when they heard the sound of a tree falling. “You could hear it coming,” Reijonen said. The tree fell on the family’s electronics room, where about a half hour earlier the children had been working on the computer, he said. Nobody was in the room when the tree hit, Reijonen said, but he estimates damage will be about $10,000. Reijonen, who is foreman for the county’s road department, said road crews spent the rest of the night working to clear hundreds of fallen trees. The storm was unusual for Pend SEE STORM, 2A

County to discuss shoreline plan Friday BY DON GRONNING OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – Pend Oreille County Commissioners have continued their regular meeting to Friday, Aug. 23, at 9 a.m. in the commissioners meeting room at the county courthouse in Newport, to discuss the county’s response to the latest public comments to the county’s Shoreline Master Program. Mike Lithgow, the county’s community development director, is to provide written responses to the 32 comments that were submitted in the last round of public comment. The county was granted a 45-day extension of the deadline to respond by the

state Department of Ecology, the agency that will ultimately have to sign off on the county’s SMP. Lithgow’s responses are due Sept. 16 and he, at the direction of county commissioners, requested an additional 45-day extension. Ecology said no to that request, citing the need for Ecology to move forward with the process. County commission chairman Mike Manus said the board may recommend shorter setbacks. “We haven’t had time to discuss it as a group,” Manus said. An earlier meeting was canceled because of a lack of notice. Ecology’s decision not to grant SEE SHORE, 2A

College students earn and learn from PUD Summer program has 23 interns BY DESIREÉ HOOD OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – The Pend Oreille Public Utility District (PUD) has 23 college student interns who get real world experience before stepping out and choosing a career. “This is a good stepping stone for someone to have a real world employment experience, do work that is valuable for us and a lot of them have gone off to do very good things,” said Paul Boxleitner, PUD Human Resources Manager. The program started more than 30 years ago at the PUD, with brush crews who were needed to help clear easements and help with the line crews. Over time, the success of the program helped the PUD expand and offer positions to more interns spread throughout the county. This summer there are 23 employees as interns. Six are working on two brush crews, two are work-

The jobs range from cutting brush with a chainsaw and dragging it to wood chippers to surveying the streams in the county to mapping the area for speedy service calls. The brush crews are three person crews that use chainsaws to clear debris and brush in the PUD easements. Boxleitner said this job is not for the faint of body as it takes strength to cut the brush and drag it to a wood chipper. The brush crews are under the direction of a foreman and the PUD trains them on safety before sending the students into the field. “It is hard work. And frankly, not all the kids are MINER PHOTO|DESIREÉ HOOD cut out for it,” Boxleitner said.

PUD | Interns must be enrolled in university, college or technical school FROM PAGE 1

Tyler Edwards, 20, both graduated from Cusick and knew each other for many years before signing on to swing a chainsaw. “There is nothing too enjoyable to cutting brush,” Edwards said. “I don’t know that is fun to anybody.” Shanholtzer graduated from Cusick in 2010 and currently attends Eastern Washington University as a senior. He wants to major in Human Resource Management. Shanholtzer was promoted to foreman for the brush crew last summer. He feels that the PUD job is great to have for many reasons, the main one being the pay. Edwards graduated in 2011, and is planning on transferring to Corbin University in Salem, Ore. because of its basketball team. He is looking into sports management as a career choice. “It is just tough to find a job anywhere and the PUD is a really great job to have. It is super good pay too,” Shanholtzer said. “We are responsible to ourselves to get the work done.” The pay and the people are too good to pass up for Edwards and he finds the camaraderie and management at the PUD to be great and that keeps him around. Shanholtzer recalls one day when the crew damaged a truck wiring harness with brush. The truck would not run and was out of commission for two weeks. “They know we are kids and kids make mistakes,” Shanholtzer said. “We learn from our mistakes.” The natural resources interns spend their days surveying streams, monitoring fish habitats and helping with the projects related to the natural resources in the county. “For that area, we try and find students who have an interest or an academic pursuit related to environmental sciences, natural resources or field biology,” Boxleitner said. “We try to make it useful for the student where they can put it on a resume and it gives them building blocks for their eventual career.” Lauren Gailey, 24, is a sophomore at Spokane Falls Community College through the Newport Institute for Extended Learning and a natural resources intern. She moved from Olympia four years ago for personal reasons and appreciates being outdoors and working with wildlife. She is looking into environmental

science as a career option. “I thought it would be an awesome opportunity. I get to learn a ton about the field I am looking into going into,” Gailey said. “I get to try stuff out and see what I like and don’t like.” She spends her days out in the field working with a group of three contractors. They measure streams and stream depth to show where logs need placed for fish pools and cover for fish. “This kind of pushes me to want to get an education,” Gailey said. “It’s a really good job. There is not a ton of job opportunities around here so this is a great opportunity to have.” The engineering student works in Newport and she helps with data collection and record keeping for the electric system. Jourdan Huntley, 19, attends Eastern Washington University as an engineering student. This is her second year working at the PUD, last year as a CNS fiber intern and this year in the engineering department. “I thought this would be a really good stepping stone to get my feet wet in the engineering department,” Huntley, a Newport native, said. She is leaning toward working with a utility company somewhere after her 2016 graduation. The main project she has been working on this summer includes mapping the area for line crews to have correct information when they are called out for service. “The job market in the utilities is extremely high and it could take me just about anywhere I want to go,” Huntley said.

Working in the warehouse means driving a forklift, moving transformers and stocking shelves. The interns also do miscellaneous work around the PUD building as well as unload trucks and deliver parts. Warehouse interns Jared Smiley, 18, and Shem Norton, 20, appreciate the skills the PUD has offered them. Smiley and Norton were friends prior to working in the warehouse. Smiley, a freshman at North Idaho College, graduated from Newport this summer and looks forward to the next three summers of work at the PUD. He wants to major in business. Norton graduated from Cusick in 2011 and currently attends EWU as a junior biology major. He has worked the past three summers with the PUD and learned skills such as heavy equipment operations and driving a forklift. “Probably the funnest part is being around the linemen,” Norton said. “They are pretty much kids. It is fun to be around them and learn things from those guys.” The Box Canyon Dam interns have various jobs around the dam. Two interns work in the office, helping take care of daily operations and continuing work with an archiving and digitizing process the dam is implementing. One intern must be a junior at a college majoring in engineering to work with the Box crews on dam maintenance and work. The other three work in general maintenance, clearing the brush around pump houses, around the property and mowing the lawn. “In the summer, there is a lot more going on. There is more public activity and there is more outdoor maintenance. They do everything from sweeping the shop up to help keeping the visitors center in ship shape,“ Boxleitner said. “We are trying to give them real world exposure to mechanic activities and technician activities, that kind of thing.” They are paid internships. Brush crews make $15.86 per hour and most of the other intern positions make $13.03 per hour. Boxleitner said the money is budgeted annually in the general fund for wages and salaries. “There is no special bucket of money,” Boxleitner said. “It is just part of the normal annual budgeting process.” The interns are college students ages 18 to 21 typically, and have heard about the jobs because they are local to the high schools in the

STORM | Victim asleep in his tent FROM PAGE 1

Oreille County, said Teresa Brooks, administrative assistant for Pend Oreille County Public Works, who fielded calls from people about downed trees. “It’s not that unusual to have a storm,” Brooks said, but they are not usually county wide, as this one was. In the north part of Pend Oreille County, near the Idaho line, a Sandpoint man was killed when a 200-foot tree fell on the tent in which he was sleeping. Kyle L. Garrett, 48, was sleeping in a tent at the Stagger Inn Campground, located directly east of Sullivan Lake near the Idaho border, when the 200foot tree was uprooted and fell on the tent, killing him. A 52-year-old woman was also injured by the falling tree. She was treated at Bonner General Hospital for non life threatening injuries. The campground is located on Highway 57, about 20 miles from the Nordman Store. Store owner Randy Votava said there was plenty of wind and light-

ning in the area. “We probably had 60 mile per hour gusts,” he said. “There were a lot of trees on the highway.” County crews had the trees cleaned up by Monday morning, he said. “They’re good about keeping the roads open,” he said. South Pend Oreille Fire and Rescue crews were called to a fire in the 200 block of Kirkpatrick Road in Elk that was started by a lightning strike Sunday night, fire chief Mike Nokes said. There was one person home at the time of the strike, Nokes said. That person said it “sounded like something blew up right next to the house.” The man smelled something burning shortly after the strike and found the exterior wall burning, Nokes said. Fifteen firefighters from SPOFR and four from Spokane County Fire District 4 responded and had the fire under control within about 20 minutes, Nokes said. Nobody was injured and he estimated damage at about $20,000. By about midnight Monday

PUD crews had power back on to the last of the 3,000 people who lost electricity, according to PUD spokesperson Eileen Dugger. Most had power by about 5 p.m. Monday, she said. The storm also disrupted fiber optic service for about 100 customers, she said. The storm caused electronic disturbances to the system’s South Ring, as well as a downed fiber optic line on Camden Road. Fiber optic customers are reminded to contact their retail service provider to report service problems, Dugger said. While the storm was intense, it isn’t that unusual, Votava said. “It seems like every August we have a storm,” Votava said. John Livingston, meteorologist for the National Weather Service office in Spokane, said that last year’s storm was worse. “It’s not that unusual to have a storm like that go through this time of year,” he said. July 20, 2012 there was a similar storm but the impacts were greater, he said. There were two deaths with that storm, one in Priest Lake and one in Republic.

county. Older “adult learners” are also welcome to apply for the positions offered, Boxleitner said. Boxleitner said the students learn about the program from school counselors or past interns. He visits the schools and area colleges to discuss the open jobs and the PUD requirements with the students. Family and friends spread the word by mouth as well, as the program has seen many local people cross the threshold of the PUD. The PUD requires that the students be at least 18 years of age with a 2.0 GPA. The students must be committed to a college, university or technical school to be considered for employment. “First and foremost, we try to emphasize creating these local opportunities for graduating high school seniors and for kids who have an interest in going on to further their education,” Boxleitner said. The school counselors have more information on the PUD summer intern program. Interns must fill out and return a completed application and submit a resume and cover letter to the PUD. “That gives us some indication of how serious they are and how well they can follow directions,” Boxleitner said. The PUD tries to use practicality on where the students are placed to work. If they are local to Selkirk, they will likely work in the north end of the county.

Each year the PUD receives 30-40 applications. The workload changes every year and the PUD adjusts the number of open positions to compensate for the workload. They hire an average of 20 students a summer for this program. “We are not shooting for a specific number, we are shooting to cover workload,” Boxleitner said. Safety is first and foremost, Boxleitner said. They train the students on safety, how equipment operates and in CPR/First Aid. Each student is then trained on the job getting the knowledge and certifications needed, such as a forklift certification. The PUD also trains on personal protective equipment, or safety equipment. The interns work out of Newport, Box Canyon and Ione. The brush crews are headquartered out of Ione, where a four-man line crew is located. Eight people on the current PUD staff are former interns. Five linemen were in the program, a couple people in the office started as interns and Operations Manager Chris Jones was a summer employee. More than a dozen past interns have found their way back to work with the PUD. “It shows that it works,” Boxleitner said. “To me, somewhere along the line, in that person’s young life, it got their attention that this might be the kind of thing they want to do as a career.”

another 45-day extension puts the county under pressure to get the SMP completed, Manus said. The setbacks are among the most controversial part of the SMP. Under the old plan, which is still in effect until the new plan is approved by Ecology, people can build as close as 25 feet from the ordinary high water mark of the shoreline. Under the updated plan, new development will not be allowed within 100 feet of the shoreline in most cases for residential development, although people with completed building permits will be grandfathered in under the updated plan. Manus said he understood that commissioners can make recommendations. Jaime Short of Ecology said her agency will consider whatever the commissioners submit. “This is the part of the process for the county to provide local reactions to concerns,” Short said. She said if county commissioners concluded something is wrong with the SMP, now is the time to point it out. But it must be supported by scientific evidence, she said. The SMP was approved by the previous board of county commissioners in October, before Manus

was appointed to the board. When Ecology gets the draft SMP, they will review it for compliance with state law and publish a response, Short said. Short said that while Ecology and the county have been working together to make sure the plan complies with the law, a review at a higher level may give a different perspective. After that, Ecology may approve the proposed shoreline program as written, reject it or direct the county to modify specific parts. Once the plan is approved for compliance with law, it will be forwarded to the director of Ecology. Fourteen days after the director signs off, the SMP will become law, although there is a 60-day period when it can still be appealed, Short said. If people disagree with interpretations of the SMP after it is in place, they will still have options, Lithgow said, but there is only one appeal heard at the county level. If someone doesn’t like an administrative decision his department makes, they can appeal to the Pend Oreille County Planning Commission. They could also ask for a variance. After that they have to appeal to the Growth Management Hearings Board. If they are still unsatisfied after that, they can appeal to Superior Court.

County considers employee theft insurance

BR I E FLY PUD Fiber hook-ups speed up NEWPORT – The Pend Oreille Public Utility District’s (PUD) fiber to the home project is experiencing increased speed as more crews pick up the slack and the supplies are in the county. Robert Fritz, Community Network Services supervisor for the PUD, said four crews will start working the installations Aug. 27, which will speed up the process with the end of September nearing. The PUD has stated the less than 4,000 customers who signed contracts allowing for the fiber to be installed to their home or business, will be completed by the end of September. This is the end of the grant extension as well. Twenty of the 39 hubs have been installed. Installations are starting to happen in Newport, as one business was connected Aug. 26. Less than 4,000 people signed the contract allowing the PUD to install fiber to their home or business. Of those, 734 requests for service have been made through the three retail service providers. More than 201 homes and businesses are connected fully, meaning the electronics are in and those people can turn on the computer and use the Internet.

Coaches take on responsibilities BY DESIREÉ HOOD OF THE MINER

School board meetings move to Tuesdays NEWPORT – The Newport School District is moving the regular board meetings to every second and fourth Tuesdays at 5 p.m. in the district boardroom, beginning Sept. 10. Superintendent Dave Smith is continuing his education at Washington State University, getting a doctorate in educational leadership. His program is mapped out for the next three years and he has no control over the scheduling of the classes, he said. A required class is on Monday evenings so the board wanted to show support for continuing education. If Smith had to wait to take this class at a later time, he would have been set back a year in his schooling. “The board felt they need to support me continuing to get my doctorate, so we changed our meetings to Tuesdays,” Smith said.

NEWPORT – The Newport School District spent the summer trying to fill the Athletic Director position, to no avail. With the sports seasons beginning, the basketball and football coaches, along with the high school principal, will team up to do the job for now. They are looking for someone within the district to do the job for the year. The Athletic Director position closed July 22 and the district was given five qualified applicants to interview and pick from. The hiring committee felt the applicants were not a good fit for the district and instead are choosing to look for an in-house employee to fill the position for the year before reposting the job in April. “The committee felt it wasn’t a good fit,” Superintendent Dave Smith said. “We are still looking at opening it up inside.” In the mean time, Steven Bryant, the basketball coach, and

Zac Farnam, the football coach, will take turns with added responsibilities. The athletic director helps out with getting fields and gyms ready, makes sure the referees are there, helps out with busses and prepares everyone involved for the game. High school principal Dennis Matson will assume the other duties of supervising the coaches and program that involves some of the student population after school. “They make sure everybody is where they need to be,” Smith said. When Bryant is not coaching, he will help with the football season making sure it runs as smoothly as possible. The job duties will switch to Farnam when football is over and basketball will begin. “It’s tough right now,” Smith said. “We have been under the gun on this since (the job) opened.” Matson will oversee the budget for the sports program. Any administrative sports business will be handled by Matson for the

time being. “The principal has final say over that budget anyway,” Smith said. Smith is hopeful to fill the position, but said it will be re-opened to the public in April. “We are going to get the school year going and sports going, then see where we are,” Smith said. “Our main priority is getting the sports season underway.” Newport has had three athletic directors in the past three years. Jim Murphy retired. A temporary athletic director, Gary Coe, resigned, and after a year, Jamie Pancho resigned to take an assistant volleyball coaching position at Whitworth University. According to the job description, the district would return to having the athletic director manage all high school and middle school sports programs. For the past few years there has been a director for each school. As part of this temporary solution, the district is looking for someone to manage the middle school programs as well.

NEWPORT – Should the county buy insurance for employee theft? The previous county commission had directed Teresa Brooks of Public Works to get some quotes. She presented the quotes to the commissioners at their Monday morning meeting Aug. 26. The county hasn’t had such insurance in the past but millions of dollars in employee theft have been uncovered in Franklin and Clallam counties. “The risk pool suggests it,” Brooks said. The county is in a pool with other counties. The county has more than 30 employees who handle money. She presented quotes from two companies – AIG and Travelers Insurance Company. For premiums of about $5,400 per, the county could buy $1 million per instance insurance against employee theft. The AIG policy had a $5,000 deductible and the Travelers policy had a $10,000 deductible. Commissioners decided to pursue the $1 million policy, but

wanted to see the actual policy before making a decision. The subject of employee theft came up during a risk management discussion between Public Works and the commissioners. County engineer Don Ramsey is the county’s risk manager. The county buys some insurance and self insures for other things, Ramsey said. Claims seem to run in cycles, he said, and the county is coming off a period of higher than usual claims. Over the last four years, claims have averaged between $95,000 and $158,000, with the county’s portion averaging $31,691. The county paid $21,654 in liability, collision and property loss claims in 2009, $32,449 in 2010, $37,986 in 2011 and $24,637 in 2012. The county pays the first $10,000 on most claims, Ramsey said. It self insures all its light vehicles and sheriff vehicles and carries insurance on some of the high value road vehicles. Ramsey recommended putting $95,000 in the Rate Stabilization Account, a fund used to cover the county’s portion of losses.

Water rates hearing may help Metaline Falls businesses BY DESIREÉ HOOD OF THE MINER

METALINE FALLS – The Pend Oreille Public Utility District Commissioners will consider rescinding the Metaline Falls Water System commercial rate increase set to go into effect Oct. 1. A public hearing is set for Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 1 p.m. in the PUD Newport Conference Room, 130 N. Washington Ave. This hearing will take place during the regular meeting of the PUD Board of Commissioners. The hearing will further consider reducing the commercial water rate increase, also set to go into effect Oct. 1. “The staff is recommending that the rate increase on the commercial side is not necessary at this

time,” said PUD water systems manager Mark Scott. The PUD passed the rate increases a year ago and planned two rate hikes over a two-year period. Rates were increased last year and may again go up this year, for both residential customers and commercial businesses. If the PUD Commissioners adopts the plan, commercial rates will not change. Residential property owners will see their monthly base rate go up $4 per month Oct. 1. Currently, the base rate for Metaline Falls residents is $64 for a minimal gallon usage of up to 10,000 gallons. Oct. 1, this would increase to $68. The commercial increase is set to go from $0.0055 per gallon to $0.0085 per gallon on Oct. 1. The base rate for commercial properties will remain at $81.

McMorris Rodgers shows support for county COLVILLE – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., held a meeting in Colville, Friday, Aug. 23 at the Tri County Economic Development District (TEDD) Office, to show her support of the Forest Service efforts in the Colville National Forest. Pend Oreille County Commissioner Mike Manus attended the meeting, along with commissioners from Ferry and Stevens counties. Also present was a large mix of people including representatives from 49 degrees North ski resort, the Lands Council, the Ponderay Newsprint Company, Sen. John Smith, R-Colville and retired Sen. Bob Morton. The Pend Oreille County issues that were discussed included the CNS fiber project, the South End Motor Vehicle Project for opening Forest Service roads to OHV travel, harvesting the forest service land and the Vaagen Brothers mill at Usk and its’ future. Manus said that not harvesting enough might shut down the Vaagen mill and impact Ponderay Newsprint. “If we don’t get harvest up, it is going away,” Manus said of the mills. McMorris Rodgers will continue working on the federal level for the projects, which is where the support is needed, Manus said. “The Colville National Forest is the economic engine for our Northeastern Washington counties and healthy forests mean healthy communities,” McMorris Rodgers said. “Of the 1.1 million acre Colville National Forest, over 300,000 acres are bug infested. In addition, it has the potential to bring more jobs, recreation and increased local revenue to Ferry, Stevens, and

Pend Oreille counties.” According to McMorris Rodgers, the federal government made a promise over a century ago to actively manage our forests and provide 25 percent of revenues for schools and counties impacted by National Forest land. But declining timber harvests has meant dramatically less revenue. McMorris Rodgers is an original sponsor of H.R. 1526, Restoring Healthy Forests for Healthy Communities Act. It directs the Forest Service to meet specific harvest levels in certain areas, will help improve forest health and prevent catastrophic wildfires, extends supplemental Secure Rural Schools payments for one year, and would improve local forest management by allowing counties to actively manage portions of National Forest land through the creation of “Community Forest Demonstration Areas.” The bill is expected to be on the House Floor this fall. McMorris Rodgers has also been working for the past two years to initiate a public-private partnership in the national forest. The “A to Z” Mill Creek Pilot Project sets up a 10-year contract on 50,000 acres in the Colville National Forest. It allows a private company to use private dollars for everything after the timber sale is laid out, including the pre-sale environmental requirements and NEPA. With private funds and local management, the Colville National Forest can be managed for healthier forests and stable, sustainable revenue. According to McMorris Rodgers, the Washington Department of Natural Resources produces seven times the timber from one-quarter of the acreage as the Forest Service

in Washington State. “The Forest Service should work with the timber industry to create jobs and revenue at a time when they are badly needed, while still protecting the environment and ensuring a sustainable harvest,”

McMorris Rodgers said. “This pilot project will show how it can be done, and I want Ferry, Stevens and Pend Oreille counties to be model for the rest of the country.” The winning bid will be announced in September.

Biggest issues get smallest crowds

NORTHWEST FLORIDA DAILY NEWS

When participants visited the nation’s capital this past weekend for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, they celebrated not just a key event in the 1960s civil rights movement. They also celebrated the long, hard struggle to end one of America’s most shameful public policies. Our older readers can remember a time when daily life in America featured legally imposed, government-sanctioned discrimination and denial of equal rights based solely on the color of one’s skin. Beginning in the 1950s, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. led nonviolent protests against such practices. In the sweltering August of 1963, almost a quarter of a million people took the cause to Washington, gathering to hear King’s now-famous “I Have a Dream” speech. “I have a dream,” Dr. King said from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, “that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Thanks to Dr. King and others, that nation exists today – although there is genuine concern that old-style discrimination is creeping back into state and federal laws. That concern was fueled, in part, when the U.S. Supreme Court in June invalidated a key section of the Voting Rights Act.

O

nly a handful of people attended public meetings around Pend Oreille County in August to say what they wanted from their parks. We think this is one of the biggest issues in the county this year and thanks to a few sharp leaders we are going to have a good plan and the chance for grants to make major improvements. The Pend Oreille County Parks and Recreation Department of Community Development has set plans in motion to adopt a six-year Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Plan that outlines planned projects for county parks in the area. The proposed 2014-2019 Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Plan has to be reviewed every six years and submitted to the state to have projects considered for grant funding. “If you have identified projects that are in your parks and recreation plan, you can get some significant grant money to implement those projects,” said Mike Lithgow, Director of Community Development. The city of Newport also has a good park plan and has found significant amounts of grant funds over the years to improve its parks. We are glad to see the county waking up. Between the county, city and schools this area will have an impressive parks and recreation system some day. The county plan is set to go to the county commissioners for adoption in November. It will then go to the state in January for final approval and grant funding. The parks and recreation facilities are the places that make the quality of life better here and at the same time attract visitors who help the local economy. The parks and recreation areas need to be safe and attractive. They need to fit the current interests of the people. This planning process is designed to figure all that out. Twenty-five years ago we remember a county commissioner saying no parks, don’t talk about parks when asked about the possibility of a small park being developed on Diamond Lake for swimming. Just think what a nice place it would be today if planning was started then. We’re glad we now have leaders with a better vision of the future.

|| This area has problem with non-whites To the editor: Ten years ago when I retired and moved to this community, my friends and coworkers warned me of moving to an area with extreme political and social beliefs. The evidence of extremism has over the years surfaced and validated the warnings I received. There was a Colville church that provided non-profit board members for the money laundering set up by Jack Abramoff. The idea was to use Native American casino money to elect more religious representatives. Then a man from Colville put a pipe bomb next to a MLK Day march in

Spokane. The bomb didn’t go off. Then this year two Colville school children plotted to murder their classmates. Who or what in their town gave them that idea? Last week Jack Smith from Colville wrote a letter that claimed Cathy McMorris Rodgers is not conservative enough. He referred to a “thousand years of darkness.” He is clearly extreme in his political thinking. Another letter from Colville pointed to the racist roots of our current state senator and candidate. I am beginning to wonder about Colville and if I should ever visit that community again. I am glad that there is a mountain ridge between our communities.

A number of years ago I attended a candidate’s night hosted by the chamber. A person with Indian heritage was running for PUD commissioner and two couples in the audience confronted him and expressed contempt for Native Americans as they didn’t pay taxes and were buying land and making demands. I was shocked and was ready for someone to say, “The only good Indian is a dead Indian.” Clearly, this area has a problem with people who are not white. I wonder how so much extremism could exist in a community with so many churches. What happened to “love thy neighbor”? -Pete Scobby Newport

Let states write their own pot laws ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

One thing President Obama fairly easily could accomplish in his second term is to put the country’s marijuana laws on a rational basis. In particular, the federal government needs to clarify its relation to state medical marijuana laws, such as California’s Proposition 215, the legalization of medical voters passed in 1996. Unfortunately, statements Wednesday by Deputy White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest kept matters muddled. While he said the president believes that “targeting individual marijuana users ... is not the best allocation for federal law enforcement resources,” he also said the president does not “at this point, advocate a change in the law.” That’s the problem. Currently, marijuana is classified as what’s called a Schedule I drug, one of five classifications the federal government uses. “Schedule I drugs are considered the most dangerous class of drugs with a high potential for abuse and potentially severe psychological and/or physical dependence,” according to the website of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. Other drugs in the category include LSD, peyote and heroin. They are severely restricted. This makes things complicated not only for California medicalmarijuana patients and their doctors, but also for the states of Washington and Colorado, which last November legalized recreational use of marijuana. To add to the confusion, last week, CNN’s chief medical correspondent, Sanjay Gupta, wrote he

had “come to the realization that it is irresponsible not to provide the best care we can as a medical community, care that could involve marijuana.” Ironically, Dr. Gupta “once was considered a candidate for surgeon general” by Obama, according to a McClatchy report. Whether the president ultimately curbs federal involvement with individual users “remains to be seen,” Dale Gieringer told us; he’s the California coordinator for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. “I think they’re confused about what to do,” he said about federal authorities. “They’re certainly giving mixed signals. They have been less than helpful in negotiating with the states or giving guidance to the states. Right now we’re seeing more of the status quo in California: random raids and prosecutions.” California has been struggling with the implementation of Prop. 215 because the initiative was unclear in some areas. In particular, it allowed cities to effectively circumvent the law by regulating marijuana dispensaries out of existence, as Anaheim did in July. Gieringer said “opposition by the feds also dampened interest in the state Legislature to regulate medical marijuana” to deal with the problems of Prop. 215. He pointed out that, although Congress could act, the president has it within his authority to change the classification of marijuana to a Schedule II drug. According to the DEA’s website, these are “drugs, substances, or SEE POT, 6A

With its great natural beauty, abundant farmland and exceptional recreational opportunities, Idaho truly is a magnificent place to live and work. Then add in the tremendous work ethic of our citizens and our family-oriented communities and Idaho seems like a can’t-miss proposition. Indeed, that winning combination has enabled us to attract entrepreneurs and new businesses while helping ensure our existing businesses have the tools they need to thrive. But to really compete for the best and brightest, we have some important work to consider. Economic development and education work hand in hand. Students graduating from Idaho schools will become the skilled employees, entrepreneurs and innovators who help our economy grow.

Outdoor recreation gets facelift Trails, upgrades and recreation planned for county

Yokum Lake Wildlife and Recreation Area, the Edgewater North Recreation Site, the Sweet Creek Rest Area and seven other miscellaneous projects.

BY DESIREÉ HOOD OF THE MINER

IONE – The Pend Oreille County Parks and Recreation Department of Community Development has set plans in motion to adopt a six-year Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Plan that outlines planned projects for county parks in the area. The proposed 2014-2019 Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Plan has to be reviewed every six years and submitted to the state to have projects considered for grant funding. Plans change often for local areas so the Parks Plan takes those changes into consideration when planning for the future. “If you have identified projects that are in your parks and recreation plan, you can get some significant grant money to implement those projects,” said Mike Lithgow, Director of Community Development Mike Lithgow. Lithgow held four town hall meetings to discuss the proposed plan and allow for public comment. The meetings Aug. 19 in Newport and Aug. 20 at Sacheen Lake had two residents in attendance, and meetings Aug. 21 in Cusick and Aug. 22 in Ione each had four residents. No opposition was given at any of the four meetings. The plan is set to go to the county commissioners for adoption in November. It will then go to the state in January for final approval and grant funding. The plan consists of six sections that Lithgow said will provide clear guidance to the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, the Board of Commissioners and the staff in the community development department. The different parks and areas being looked at for this six year plan include the Pend Oreille County Park, the Rustler’s Gulch Trail, the Pend Oreille River Water Trail,

Public polled The staff polled area residents asking what they wanted for recreation. Those results showed that most residents wanted to see better bathroom facilities at the county parks. The survey also showed that residents in the county feel that monetary support for maintenance and park upkeep should not just come from timber sales in the park system. Residents polled said the activities that will get them to the parks include fishing derbies, summer camps, classes on swimming and kayaking, hunting and shooting classes and tournaments, and weekend events for the youth. One thing was also stated countywide – sledding is a big hobby in the snowy, cold, winter months. The planners took all the survey data into consideration while writing out the Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Plan. The total expenditures for all of the projects in the plan is $1,138,340. This is broken down per year for projects. The most expensive project on the list is connecting the trails at Sweet Creek Rest Area, estimated at $368,000. The funding options from the state include the Recreation and Conservation Office. Lithgow said they could apply for a lot of funding through this program, which awarded more than $86 million in grants in the past year. Providing job opportunities, promoting tourism and getting people outdoors enjoying the county are the main reasons behind this plan. Lithgow said that when people come to the area to partake in recreational activities, they spend money in the economy on gas, food, lodging and travel expenses and that will help the local economy in a small way.

“That money trickles its way through the community … It is not going to solve any major budget crisis but I think it helps diversify your economy,” Lithgow said. “I think we are hitting the mark right on.”

ing with WDFW to build a parking lot, restroom and add interpretive signs is also proposed. “It is not developed at all. It is basically a piece of timberland,” Lithgow said. “It’s a beautiful piece but it does need some better facilities there for people to use it.” The Pend Oreille River Water Trail starts in Oldtown at the Newport Bridge and ends near the Canadian Border near the town of Metaline Falls. The county owns and maintains 12 sites along the trail. The Water Trail is a collaborative effort between WDFW, the Forest Service, State Parks, the Kalispel Tribe and other landowners. The county is responsible for maintaining the 12 sites along the river. Adding basic amenities to each site is proposed in the plan, including improved boat launches, picnic tables, a restroom and interpretive signs. They are considering acquiring the Newport Lake State Park Area and developing it into a boatin site. Also in the planning are water sport classes and other events using the Water Trail, geared toward the youth in the area. “A couple of these you would never know, they have been these little hidden gems. They are public property and people can use them, but they are in a neighborhood,” Lithgow said. “Some people in the neighborhood don’t want Joe Public to come up and use this public piece of property. We try to promote really good stewardship so that when people come in, they pack it in and pack it out. It is a challenge and a balance.” The Yocum Lake Wildlife and Recreation Area may see some changes throughout the plan. “A lot of people up north really love Yokum Lake,” Lithgow said. “It is a beautiful spot.” Obtaining volunteers to patrol and maintain the spot is critical to help effectively maintain and upkeep the properties, Lithgow said. Developing the hiking trails and dispersed campsites on both

Various projects The Pend Oreille County Park consists of 360 acres of forested primitive land. Plans include updating and improving camping and day use areas. This includes repairing roads, leveling and redesigning some campsites and re-vegetating and giving erosion control to the picnic area. The plan also includes improving signage in the park, developing a camp host site and recruiting a camp host, improving trails and organizing outdoor recreation and environmental education activities, especially for the youth in the county. “From a lot of people’s perspectives, it is under used and under utilized and we need to start focusing on it,” Lithgow said. Also part of the County Park is the Rustler’s Gulch Trail. The trail would connect the County Park to the county owned Rustler’s Gulch Recreation Area. The trail would run along Fertile Valley Road in South Pend Oreille County. Lithgow said this would help with tourism because the parks sit beside the West Branch Little Spokane Wildlife Area owned by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). The WDFW land is used for hunting and outdoor recreation but offers no camping or day use areas. The trail will connect the parks giving equestrians more options of places to ride, but still allow them to stay in the county park for camping. “It could become a destination for people, like they go to Farragut State Park over in Idaho to ride their horses,” Lithgow said. “Make it really user friendly and bring people in, that is one of the goals.” Other plans for Rustler’s Gulch includes improving signage and maintaining existing trails.

Fuel prices cause for lunch cost increase BY DESIREÉ HOOD OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – The Newport School District approved raising the price of paid lunches 15 cents because of the rising cost of fuel and fresh vegetables at the regular board meeting Monday, Aug. 26. “In our case, we haven’t raised our prices for a few years,” said Tom Crouch, Newport School District business manager. “The fuel prices have stayed high and transportation costs as well.” The price for lunch will now cost elementary school students $2.25, middle school students will pay $2.50 and high school students will pay $2.75. The free and reduced breakfast and lunch programs will remain the same. The district surveyed 14 school districts and even with the 15 cent increase, Newport is below the highest districts surveyed. The average cost for the districts surveyed, Newport included, is $2.28 for elementary schools, $2.66 for middle schools and $2.76 for high schools. Those averages will increase if more districts raise their prices for this school year. “Even with the increase, we are below the current average,” Crouch said. Crouch said the district served more than 20,000 paid lunches last school year. With a 15 cent increase, the district will receive more than $3,000 in revenue if the numbers stay similar for this school year.

Book sale in Priest River PRIEST RIVER – The Priest River Library is holding a book sale Saturday, Sept. 7. The cost is $2 per bag of books. Come in and start stocking up for winter, librarians said.

“I think we are in line with what everyone else is doing,” said Janet Burcham, Sadie Halstead Middle School Principal. “We now have salad bars in all three schools which is awesome, however, everybody knows, fresh fruit and veggies are through the roof. I think we are doing what we need to do just to stay in the game.” In other business, the school board discussed asking for a budget extension. Crouch said that more than two thirds of other districts in Washington are asking for a budget extension for various reasons. The district legally cannot go over the amount of the budget, so they have to get legal authority to spend money that is not budgeted on paper. Newport is asking for an extension because they don’t budget carry over money from grants received past the deadline for the previous years budget. The federal grant money was awarded after the state money came out so the district was given an increase of $344,750, Crouch said. The district has been given authority to spend the money so they asked for an extension to put it properly in the budget. “They gave us extra money to spend,” Crouch said. “It appears we will have a lot better reserve than last year.” The board discussed two surprise maintenance items that came up. One of the water pumps near the middle school quit working. Because of new DepartSEE FUEL, 6A

sides of the lake are in the proposal. Building a parking lot to better accommodate boat trailers was also mentioned. The Edgewater North Recreation Area was recently logged and there is lots of room for outdoor recreation activities, Lithgow said. The plan proposes to develop this area for both motorized and non-motorized outdoor recreation. Building a parking lot for vehicles with trailers, improve signage and repair and maintain existing trails are all a part of the plan for this area. “This site would be a really good mixed use site,” Lithgow said. “It is right next to the Edgewater Campground, which is a Forest Service campground, and since they are right there, people can use that and recreate on our property.” The Sweet Creek Rest Area, maintained by the county’s Public Works Department, is the only rest area north of the newly installed Kalispel Tribe Rest Area just north of Cusick. “We want to keep it nice and that costs money,” Lithgow said. There are two trails that wrap around each side of the Sweet Creek and the plan proposes to connect the two trails. Lithgow said the funding may be difficult to get for this site because it is an expensive project. “It is kind of like the icing on the cake because you have a really nice site and you just want to make it that much nicer,” Lithgow said. “When the right funding option

comes up, I think we could make that happen.” The plan covers seven miscellaneous projects as well that would be placed throughout the county. They are not associated with any specific land or trail as of yet, making them miscellaneous for the report. Working with the Forest Service to repair and maintain the Batey Bould ORV Park is on the list. Lithgow said there are not many ORV trails in the area and they would like to do some “much needed” maintenance to open the park to be ORV friendly. The plan shows three areas that would be new to the county if the funding comes through. Putting in a Disc Golf course, adding geocache sites and making a sledding/ tubing run are also ideas. Disc golfing is a sport played like traditional ball golf, except players use flat discs and drive for a metal basket hoping to hear the clanking of chains by par. There are more than 5,000 courses and more than 40,000 registered members in the U.S. as well as many players who are not registered with the Professional Disc Golf Association. Geo-caching is a real world treasure hunt using a hand held GPS system where hunters navigate to different sites and once the treasure is found, players sign the log book, trade goodies and head off to the next find. There are more than 2.2 million geo-cache sites hidden around the world in places of varying difficulties and more than 6 million users participating in the sport.

research on marijuana’s medical properties, for which it currently is very difficult to obtain permission, could be eased. For us, this is a matter of allowing leeway for the 50 states, which are supposed to be the “crucibles of democracy.” The president should ask the DEA and the Food and Drug Administration, which determine the drug classifications, to reclassify marijuana as a Schedule II drug. And he should to ask his Justice Department and DEA to let the 50 states establish, and enforce, their own marijuana laws.

The Pend Oreille County Sheriff’s Office approached the district about removing some trees and putting a 10-foot fence in to surround the jail’s exercise yard. Sheriff’s personnel told the district this is to eliminate the chance of contraband being passed to inmates. No decision was made on this topic and Superintendent Dave Smith said he would look further into the legal impacts before the next meeting.

North Pend Oreille

NEWS FROM NORTH PEND OREILLE COUNTY INCLUDING IONE, METALINE & METALINE FALLS

Shorter hours for package pickup Postal Service cuts hit north county BY DESIREÉ HOOD OF THE MINER

IONE – The north Pend Oreille County post offices in Metaline and Metaline Falls have reduced hours but still operate five days a week. The Metaline Falls Post Office is reduced to operate Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. It will offer pick-up and delivery but no office hours on Saturday. The Metaline Post Office has

also seen a reduction in hours, bigger than its neighbor to the north. Metaline is now operating Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to noon, and Saturday from 9:30-11 a.m. Corporate Communication Specialist for the United States Postal Service (USPS) Ernie Swanson said the changes were made because the Postal Service has lost too much revenue to online purchases and emails. “Unfortunately, the Postal Service is doing this to reduce costs,” Swanson said. Since 2006, the USPS has seen a decrease of 45 billion pieces of

mail per year. Two years ago, the Postal Service made a nationwide program that would close more than 3,700 post offices nationwide. Feedback was very negative, Swanson said, so they chose to reduce the hours of many of the offices instead of close them completely. Metaline and Metaline Falls both fell into this category. As of now, Swanson said no other changes would take place in Pend Oreille County. More than 13,100 post offices across the U.S. have seen or will see a reduction in hours. “The process is ongoing,” Swanson said. “People need to be

cognizant and try to make it there during those hours.” The other significant change, according to Metaline Falls Postmaster Jennifer Woelk, is the two post offices now report to Ione as the administrator for their postal service needs. Swanson said the administrator is a career employee, not a contract employee such as the workers of the two north end post offices, and a career employee handles the paperwork and supplies for the offices. “We report to Ione first and if need be, we would go to Spokane,” Woelk said.

IDFG plans Clark Fork river delta restoration project CLARK FORK – Due to concerns over the loss of fish and wildlife habitat in the Lake Pend Oreille area resulting from the operation of the Albeni Falls Dam in Oldtown, the state of Idaho agreed to utilize funding from the Bonneville Power Administration to protect, improve and restore habitat in the Clark Fork River delta that is being lost due to erosion. The restored and enhanced habitat will benefit a wide variety of wildlife, including songbirds, waterbirds, raptors, waterfowl, elk, deer, moose, bear and fur-

bearers by providing improved areas for breeding, feeding and cover. The project will occur in two phases. The first phase involves the drift yard and boat launch areas, as well as two island areas directly to the south of the drift yard recreation site. The second phase will involve bank stabilization work along White and Derr Islands. Visitors to the area should expect some interruption of public access to the Clark Fork River delta from the drift yard access site during the first construction

phase, which will begin in July 2014 and run through March 2015. The proposed restoration activities include protecting delta shorelines with engineered structures and vegetated riprap. This will help prevent saturated wetland soils from slumping into the water and wave action from eroding shorelines. The restoration effort will also elevate portions of the delta areas that are currently submerged during the summer to increase the amount of habitat available to breeding waterfowl and

wildlife. Efforts will be made to reduce the presence of invasive weeds and encourage the growth of native grasses, forbs and woody plants. Work to implement the first phase will start in July 2014, with rock and large wood being barged to the project site. Construction of the projective structures and earthmoving will occur after the lake level is lowered to its winter elevation in November 2014, and will continue until March 2015, when the spring flows begin.

any other car show,” committee member Lynn Barnes said. Many bands will grace the area during Affair on Mainstreet. This year’s line up includes the Dave King Family Band, King/ Cates/Haight, Cascade Rangers, Midnight Run and King Mantra. Check the schedule for locations and times. The Lions Club will be offering train rides during the event, leaving from the Metaline Falls Train Depot instead of the Ione Depot. Rides will be offered Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 31 and Sept. 1, at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. The cost of the train ride is $15 for passengers ages 13 through 64, $10 for seniors over 65 and children ages 2 to 12. Children under 2 ride free. The train travels over a 1910 trestle with views of Box Canyon Dam, through two tunnels – one of which is 810 feet in length – crossing the Pend Oreille River at scenic Box Canyon Dam and winds along cliffs 100 feet above the river. At the reversing point, riders usually encounter “train robbers” who volunteer in Wild West period costumes. Proceeds from the robberies benefits the Cutter Theatre.

Local attractions such as Crawford State Park, Gardner Caves, Boundary Dam, Box Canyon Dam, Tiger Historic Center and the Cutter Theatre are recommended stops during guests’ visit. With advance reservations, the Lions Club can accommodate any size group. Limited handicap access is available in one of the open-air railcars. For more information call 1-877-525-5226 or go to www.lionstrainrides.com. Affair on Mainstreet started more than 25 years ago when the Inland Portland Cement Plant closed operations. The townsfolk wanted something that would bring tourists to their town. The local garden club gardeners would put up displays of the best blooms from their flowerbeds along Main Street. That event tradition expired with the blooms after about five years. The affair has transformed throughout the years and now includes art showings, vendors, food and entertainment for a family friendly weekend celebration. “We have lots of entertainment this year,” Barnes said. “Come enjoy.”

Bonner commissioners caution salt use SANDPOINT – Bonner County officials recently asked the state to quit salting the roads for winter highway maintenance until the damage from the use of salt is more thoroughly investigated. Bonner County commissioners adopted a resolution Tuesday, July 23, asking legislators and the governor to stop using salt brine until a series of studies are done to determine the risks of using the material. The use of salt brine is controversial because it has been said to be corrosive to vehicles and cause incidents of animals being killed in the roadway because they like to lick the salt. In 2009, the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) made the switch from sand to salt brine to minimize the financial costs for winter road mainte-

nance. According to Sen. Shawn Keough, R-Sandpoint, there are few benefits to using salt. “The safety issues that result from the corrosion and wildlife attraction to the salt outweigh the financial gains and were not factored in the department’s decision,” Keough told The Miner.

Luna recommends P.E. as graduation requirement in Idaho POCATELLO – Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna proposed last week that Idaho make physical education – P.E. – a graduation requirement, which students can meet by taking P.E. classes in school or participating in afterschool sports or activities approved at the local level. The proposed changes are part of Luna’s efforts to ensure all Idaho students are prepared for the world that awaits them after graduation. “Research shows that physical activity, especially when it occurs in school, not only provides many health benefits to students but also leads to better academic performance. Through these changes, we can better ensure all students have equal access to the same opportunities while they are in school,” Superintendent Luna said. Superintendent Luna recommended the proposed changes to administrative rule at the Idaho State Board of Education’s

meeting in Pocatello. The board granted initial approval of the proposed rule changes, allowing them to go out for public comment. They will return to the board in November for final consideration. If approved, the rule changes will go before the Idaho Legislature in January for final approval. It must be approved by at least one body in the Legislature. According to the American Heart Association, 41 percent of adults in the United States will be obese by 2015. Regular physical education can help prevent this. P.E. is not only associated with many health benefits, such as lower risks of cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity, but studies also show students who participate in P.E. at school perform better in math and reading. Based on this research and the benefit to students, the Idaho State Department of Education worked with the American Heart Association and the Idaho

Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, which represents P.E. teachers across Idaho, to develop requirements for P.E. in Idaho schools at every grade level. Currently, P.E. is required in elementary and middle grades, but no minimum time requirement exists. In high school, P.E. is required to be offered, but students do not have to take it in order to graduate. Under the proposed rule change, the state would require a minimum of 60 minutes per week of P.E. in elementary grades and a minimum of 200 minutes per week in the middle grades. In high school, students would take at least two credits of P.E. in order to graduate. Luna’s proposed credit requirement provides Idaho students with the flexibility to show mastery and earn at least one of their two required credits by playing a sport or other activity outside the school day. The

Volunteers sought for Extension’s Master Gardener program SANDPOINT – The University of Idaho Extension in Bonner County is currently seeking volunteers to assist Bonner County residents with their gardening as Master Gardeners. Volunteers will solve plant problems, develop demonstration gardens, write articles or other educational tasks. Volunteers will be expected to contribute a minimum of 50 hours

DEQ seeks comment on septic system setbacks BOISE – The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is seeking public comment on its draft guidance on determining reduced setback distances from surface water septic systems. The guidance provides a model based on phosphorus that predicts the potential impact of discharges on surface water. Shorter setbacks from surface water would be allowed if property owners could demonstrate that public health and water quality would remain appropriately protected. The document, On-Site Setback Distance Determination: Modeling Phosphorus in the Environment as the Critical Constituent, is available for review on DEQ’s website www.deq.idaho. gov. Submit written comments on the draft guidance by 5 p.m. MDT, Monday, Sept. 23 to Tyler Fortunati, R.E.H.S., On-Site Wastewater Coordinator, Idaho DEQ State Office, 1410 N. Hilton, Boise, ID 83706; or email tyler.fortunati@ deq.idaho.gov.

helping Bonner County residents during the summer of 2014. Successful volunteers recognize the value of learning through their volunteer service. In preparation for their service, volunteer candidates will be trained by university faculty, volunteers and local experts during the fall and winter. The training is interactive and discussion-oriented, and candidates will be expected to conduct research, solve problems, lead discussions and give short

presentations. After applications are received, candidates will interview with UI staff, and upon a successful interview, be cleared to begin training. Cost of the program is $75 for materials. The deadline for applications is Sept. 30. If there are enough successful applicants, training will begin in November. To receive an application and more information about the program, call UI Extension in Bonner County at 208-263-8511.

activity must be sanctioned by the Idaho High School Activities Association or approved by the local school district. The majority of Idaho school districts are already meeting these proposed recommendations, with 77 percent of Idaho school districts reporting they require high school students to take P.E. at the local level before graduation.

Students will not have to complete a proficiency exam in order to graduate. “Integrated into the already existing health class, this initiative would produce thousands of students ready, willing and able to save lives. This is imperative because four out of five cardiac arrests occur at home, so people who administer CPR are most likely saving the lives of fam-

ily and friends,” said Adrean Cavener with the Idaho American Heart Association. If approved by the Board and Legislature, these changes would be effective for the Class of 2019 (students entering 9th grade in Fall 2015).

BR I E FLY Former player returns to coach Spartan volleyball PRIEST RIVER – Angie Goins, known as Angie Turner when she played volleyball for Priest River, will be the high school varsity coach. She will replace Kati Bodecker, who is coaching volleyball for Whitworth University. Goins will have four starters back from last year’s team that won the state runner up trophy last year. When she was a student, Goins played on the team that made the school’s first trip to the state tournament in 1998. While she was an All Intermountain League volleyball player, she was best known for her basketball accomplishments. She holds most of the Spartans’ scoring records and was named the Idaho A-2 Player of the Year in 2001. Her high school coaching experience was as a Spartan volleyball and basketball assistant in the mid 2000s.

NEWPORT – The annual Great Northwest Fall Tour bike ride is set for Sunday, Sept. 1, starting at Newport City Park. Participants can chose from 15, 30, 50 or 85-mile trips, all on paved county roads. The event is put on by the Newport Priest River Rotary Club. The 15 and 30 mile courses include a few easy hills while the 50 and 85 mile rides have enough hills to make it challenging, including a few sustained climbs. While all the routes are on paved roads, a majority of them are county roads, which vary in the smoothness of their surfaces.

Check-in starts at 7 a.m. at the park. The 85-mile ride begins at 8 a.m. and the others begin at 9 a.m. The ride includes food and water stops along the routes and a meal at the finish, available from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Each rider is responsible for the mechanical condition of his or her bicycle. It is advised that each rider carry a spare tube, patch kit and bike pump. All riders are required to wear an ANSI or SNELL approved mike helmet while riding. To register, visit http://gnwft. homestead.com/, or register the morning of the ride.

All hunters and anglers required to stop at check stations BY PHIL COOPER REGIONAL WILDLIFE EDUCATOR, IDAHO PANHANDLE

COEUR D’ALENE – Hard as it is to believe, summer is already coming to a close and some Idaho hunting seasons have already opened. These include what are called “green-field hunts” that are intended to provide some relief to crop producers experiencing damage by big game. Many additional seasons open in the very near future for big game as well as small game. Archers should take note that the general archery deer season opens before the general archery elk season. Prior to last year, both opened Aug. 30. As was the case last year, general season elk hunting for both archery and firearms hunters is only open for antlered elk. There is no general cow season in the Panhandle at this time. At the fair last week, I was asked numerous times when the cow season would return. Nobody has a good answer for that question other than to say that it cannot happen until overall elk numbers and cow-calf ratios improve. Calves must survive to recruitment in better numbers than they currently are before general cow hunting can be available. IDFG will continue to monitor populations using aerial and ground surveys; and, monitor harvest by reviewing mandatory

harvest report data, mail and phone surveys, and check station results to keep track of population changes. While we are talking about check stations, it is important that hunters and anglers know what to do when they come upon a check station. Idaho Code requires that “all sportsmen, with or without game, must stop at Fish and Game check stations.” All those who are hunting or fishing that day, or are returning from an overnight hunting or fishing outing, are required to stop. Each year, a few sportsmen do not stop at check stations because they were not successful on that specific trip. They see the signs, but think the instructions don’t apply to them and continue on their way. However, information about a trip where nothing was harvested is also recorded. Citations can be issued to those who have spent the day in the field and do not stop. The Idaho Fish and Game Department runs two types of check stations. These include wildlife management check stations and enforcement check stations. Both types are important, and sportsmen can help IDFG gather information useful to managing both fish and game. Management Check Station data is most accurate and meaningful when all hunters and anglers comply with the requirement to stop. It is important that

hunters stop to give biologists information relating to the trip they are returning from. The management check stations serve as a helpful immediate measure of how the season is going. The information provides the short term ability to compare hunter success to previous years. Final season success and harvest figures are derived from the final mandatory checks on some species, harvest reports, check station data and telephone surveys. Sportsmen driving on less traveled roads may also encounter impromptu check stations that stop all vehicles and divert hunters or anglers aside to answer additional questions. These Enforcement Check Stations may be set up by Conservation Officers at any time of the day or night, and are intended to enforce Idaho wildlife laws and orders. When at either type of check station, hunters and anglers are asked a series of questions about how many occupants of the vehicle were hunting or fishing, which big game unit they were in, and how many animals of which species have been harvested. At a check station, you are required by law to produce all fish or game in possession for inspection. It usually takes just a few minutes. Those species for which a tag and mandatory check is required will be checked, and data such as age and sex recorded. This can

save you a trip to check in your animal at a later date. You may also complete your requirement to file a harvest report if you have harvested a deer or elk, or if you are done hunting for the season. Simply complete the form and drop it off at the check station and you will be finished with reporting your hunting results for that species for the year. Please stop in at every check station you encounter as you travel to or from hunting and fishing outings. The information you provide is important to successful management of the wildlife resource we enjoy in Idaho. You can also ask questions and get information about how the season is progressing. All hunters, both big game and small game are encouraged to carefully review the hunting regulations prior to heading into the field. Nobody wants to violate a rule because they were not aware of a change. Sportsmen looking for answers to questions about regulations or seasons can contact the IDFG Panhandle Region Office at 208-769-1414. IDFG employees had a great time visiting with people about hunting and fishing at the North Idaho Fair, and at the Boundary and Bonner County fairs. It was obvious that hunters in the panhandle are excited about getting ready for the upcoming hunting seasons.

After graduating from Newport High School she worked at the Ideal Spot as a waitress until she met her husband, Dean Persyn, on the dance floor. They were married in October of 1956. Mrs. Persyn worked as a librarian, then worked and retired as a clerk for the city of Newport. She enjoyed being a part of many organizations such as the Rebecca’s, the Eagles, REAC, and Soroptomist.

Dorothy O’Connor Seattle, Wash.

Dorothy O’Connor passed away Wednesday, Aug. 14, at the age of 82. She was born in Akron, Ohio, Dec. 23, 1930, to Elmer and Kathryn Lytle. She focused on art at O’Connor Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles and worked in the production of Family Theater Radio and in television in the 1950s. After two years in New York she returned to Los Angeles, married Don O’Connor, and after divorce, raised her four beloved redheaded sons Chris, Mark, Mathew and Adam, born between 1958 and 1964. She helped to found MOMMA, an organization that championed the needs of single parents and children. Ms. O’Connor moved her family to Seattle in 1973, worked for Toner & Associates, opened a pie shop in the Pike Place Market, and gathered devoted friends from Seattle’s art, culture and political scenes. Later she moved to Metaline Falls, where she turned furniture into art and parties into fiestas of her culinary creations, returning to Seattle in recent years. She acquired life long friends along the way, loved her travels through the Southwest, and suffered the paralyzing loss over time of her adult children in unrelated illnesses and accidents, returning from dark hours with her heart intact and her wit never ending, family said. Ms. O’Connor was preceded in death by her brother Jim. She is survived by sister Kathy Volkerding and her husband Gene Volkerding of Ojai, Calif., granddaughter Katy O’Connor of Seattle and friends she called family.

_________________ 2013281 PUBLIC NOTICE NOTICE OF NEW LICENSE FOR BOUNDARY HYDROELECTRIC PROJECT The Boundary Hydroelectric Project is owned and operated by Seattle City Light (SCL) and licensed by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) as project No. 2144. On March 20, 2013 the FERC issued a 42 year license for continued operation. The project is located at 1198 Boundary Dam Access Rd, Metaline, WA 99152. The new license describes ongoing operations, and protection, mitigation and enhancement measures for fish & aquatics, cultural, terrestrial/wildlife, and recreation resources. Reservoir Water Surface Elevations. SCL can fluctuate the forebay water surface elevations between 1,954 and 1,994 feet NAVD 88. Historically they have been operated within the top 20 feet (i.e., 1,974 1,994 feet NAVD 88) more than 90 percent of the time. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, SCL facilitates reservoir access and related-recreational activities by maintaining water surface fluctuations above 1,984 NAVD 88 from 6:00 am through 8:00 pm and at night the pool elevation is maintained above elevation 1,982 feet NAVD 88 from 8:00 pm through 6:00am.

Minimum Water Releases. No minimum water releases are required at the Boundary Project. Recreational Enhancements. SCL will implement a Recreation Resources Management Plan that includes capital improvements, operations and maintenance, on-water recreation, public access, interpretive opportunities, and a recreational fishing program. Boundary Forebay Recreation Area. Existing amenities include a two-lane concrete boat launch and boarding float, RV and tent campsites, picnic sites with tables, restrooms with flush toilets, gravel parking area, a viewpoint of Boundary Dam, and a historic miner’s log cabin. SCL will add more campsites and dayuse picnic sites; improve site layout and vehicle circulation; extend the boat launch to prevent boats from getting stranded when the reservoir is low; and improve ADA access. Metaline Park Boat Launch. SCL will make improvements to the portion of the park that is adjacent to Boundary Reservoir, including replacing the existing boat launch and extending a boat ramp to facilitate launching/retrieving boats; improving parking and circulation for boats/trailers; and providing an ADA accessible restroom. Recreation Sites on Boundary Reservoir. SCL will improve shorelinerelated recreation sites on Boundary Reservoir for camping and fishing; and add sanitation systems, picnic tables, fire rings, and watercraft landing/tie up areas at six of these sites. Visitor Centers. SCL will update visitor centers at the Boundary Project with new interpretive materials and ADA improvements. The Vista House is a day use area located on the east side of Boundary Reservoir and includes an observation building with interpretive displays and restrooms, and an outdoor viewing platform that is accessed via a gravel trail. The Tailrace Recreation area is located immediately downstream of Boundary Dam on the western bank of the Pend Oreille River and provides a space for visitors to relax and enjoy views of Boundary Dam. A Visitors’ Gallery, located inside Boundary Powerhouse, is open on a seasonal basis providing views of the generator floor and interpretive panels that explain how electricity is generated at the project. Trails. SCL will construct three new recreational trails on the east side of Boundary Reservoir: a trailhead and ADA-accessible trail extending from NFS road 3165315 and leading to a viewpoint of Peewee Falls; a trailhead and ADA-accessible trail in the vicinity of the Riverside Mine near Slate Creek leading to a viewpoint of the canyon; and an approximately 7-8 mile long trail connecting the Peewee Falls and Riverside Mine viewpoints. Metaline Falls Portage and Boat Access. SCL will develop a route for boaters to take their boats out of the river, walk the boats around the falls, and put them back in the river below the falls. The site will include an area for visitors to drive in and launch non-motorized craft at the site and a restroom. Interpretation and education. SCL will develop a visitor interpretation and education program that includes education on energy production, environmental conservation, and information about facilities or use areas to visit. Measures may include signs, kiosks, exhibits, displays, pamphlets, web-based CONTINUED ON 12B
