Eugene leads in county commission fundraising By Don Gronning Of The Miner

NEWPORT – Pend Oreille County Board of Commissioners candidate Bob Eugene has emerged as the leading fundraiser in the race for county commissioner. Eugene, a Democrat, has raised $13,705 and spent $9,962, according to the state Public Finance Disclosure Commission (www.pdc. wa.gov). His Republican opponent, incumbent Karen Skoog, has raised $5,487 and spent $4,141. The two are in a race for the District 1 seat in the southern part of the county. In the other county commissioner race for the District 3 seat in the northern part of the county, incumbent Steve Kiss and Ronald J. Hampton, both Republicans, have agreed not to raise or spend more than $5,000, according to Lori Anderson of the Public Finance Disclosure Commission. Because of that, they don’t file updates with the commission. She said they also agreed to accept no more than $500 from any individual donor. Eugene’s biggest donors included two $1,000 contributions from the 7th LD Democratic Central Committee. He received $500 donations from three unions – the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades District Council No. 5, the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 1439 and the Washington Education Association Political Action Committee. He also received smaller contributions from three other unions – $300 from the Spokane Regional Labor Council, $250 from the Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters and $250 from the Spokane Regional Labor CounSee Funding, 2A

Candidates forum civil, informative

By Don Gronning Of The Miner

NEWPORT – Eleven candidates for various elected positions answered questions and made a case why voters should choose them during a candidates forum held at Newport High School Monday

night. All four candidates for Pend Oreille County Commission – RJ Hampton, Steve Kiss, Karen Skoog and Bob Eugene – appeared, as did the four judicial candidates, Pat Monasmith, C. Olivia Irwin, Jessica Taylor Reeves and Terry Williams. State Reps. Shelly Short and Joel

Pend Oreille County Commissioner, District 1

What current issue would you like to see the commission handle differently than it currently is? Eugene said the biggest current issue, which has been floating around for the last couple of years, is the effort to acquire federal lands locally. “I presented the commissioners in June Eugene 2014 an analysis of their resolution that they were considering,” and pointed out its flaws. He said it would be an unfunded mandate if lands currently managed by the Forest Service were managed by the state. Tri-County Health District has cut back on

OLDTOWN - Due to a lack of consistent, economical log supply, Tri-Pro Forest Products, Inc.-Orofino division has been closed. The mill has been operating in the area since 2007. According to a press release from IFG, “It has been difficult this year to keep the plant running and from this point forward, the log supply will only become worse. We sincerely regret this outcome and are solemnly aware of the impact the plant closure will have on families and the community as a whole.”

What current issue would you like to see the commission handle differently than it currently is? Skoog said there’s not an issue she would like to see the county handle differently, Skoog but she is concerned about water rights and a recent court decision was is not good for counties in Washington state. She explained that water in Washington is owned by people. The Department of Ecology manages the water. The latest court case was lost by Whatcom County, and the case opens counties up to the risk of being sued if they give any building permits.

They will continue in procurement, produc-

  

tion, sales, and marketing. “IFG and Tri-Pro have an excellent and long-standing relationship,” says Deren. “We are both family owned businesses and make a fantastic fit operationally, logistically and culturally.” “I am very excited about the increased scale and scope of products we will be able to offer our combined customers,” Deren says.

Skoog: From Page 1A

“We’ll have to work that one through,” Skoog said. She said there’s a lot of misunderstanding about water rights. Rather than wanting a particular issue to head in a different direction, she said there are times when you just don’t have a solution yet. “It’s just going to take work and time,” she said. One example is the budget, which the county is working on now. Tri-County Health District has cut back on all things family planning. Are you concerned about the future of Tri-County Health, what do you think the county should do about it? Do you support the tri-county agency? Skoog said family planning was moved from Tri-County Health to the hospital district because of difficulty in funding. She’s on a task force to revise some of the by-laws and charter, and she supports the continuation of the Tri-County Health District. “I think we’re a commit-

ted team. It’s due diligence to always review what you’re doing.” The team is working on the budget. “We want to have a better connection with the county boards and Tri-County Health, more frequent meetings and rotating the chair so there is more connection to it,” she said. Since the health district is based in Stevens County, they are responsible for more of the funding. Skoog believes some of it could be done here, but other aspects – such as communicable diseases – Pend Oreille County isn’t set up for. So she’s in favor of continuing the partnership of Tri-County Health. The EDC operates as a county entity. How involved should the commissions be in setting the EDC’s overall agenda? What direction do you think economic development should be headed in POC? Skoog said the EDC is operated by its own board, which is important because it’s made up community members. “I think this opportunity with looking at the

HiTest Sand, looking at zoning and working with our professional advisor, Greg Dohrn, it’s going to be really important for us to examine what other areas of the county we can do that.” Skoog said that we have an aging population, and we need jobs for younger people to move here and live here. She said the county is looking to do a sub-area plan along Highway 2, but the project was put on hold because of the HiTest Sand process. The sub-area plan will look at what infrastructure we have and what uses are suitable. She doesn’t think the county government should dictate what kind of economic development occurs. “It’s actually the whole county. It’s not the county government, it’s the county community.” Hi Test Sand is looking at building a $3 million smelter in POC. Do you support the venture? Why or why not? “I support going through the process, and I do support an increase in economic development. You never know what you’re

going learn,” she said. POC leaders are discussing the formation of an ambulance district. Would you support that idea and do you believe a tax should be levied to secure ambulance services? Skoog said she thinks forming the district is the right thing to do right now, but the tax would be decided by voters. “Public safety is something that we’re all concerned about,” she said. “We need to know that we’ll be taken care of in the case of emergency.” The commissioners are waiting for language to approve an outright ban on retail marijuana sales in Pend Oreille County. Ione is the only city/town that hasn’t approved a moratorium. Do you think marijuana shops should be allowed in POC? Why or why not? Skoog said she thinks an outright ban should be decided by the voters. She had voted to put the issue before the voters, but her motion failed. She thinks it’s unfair

that the state combined medical and recreational marijuana. “I think that’s tremendously unfair and discouraging to everyone who uses medical marijuana for a decent reason,” she said. She said she became educated on the use of marijuana, visited a shop and a doctor came to talk to the commissioners about it. She gave an example of marijuana cream used to relieve muscle spasms, but wouldn’t get the user high. She believes that should be accessible to the public, without being put on a database or getting a prescription from a doctor. She said the law dictates that marijuana can’t be sold to a minor and it’s unlawful to drive under the influence. “I am more afraid of bars to tell you the truth,” she said. “I’m not endorsing the use of any mind altering substance,” she said. But she said that any statement made about marijuana should come from the voters, not the commissioners. “The real statement doesn’t come from government, it comes from community.”

all things family planning. Are you concerned about the future of Tri-County Health, what do you think the county should do about it? Do you support the tri-county agency? Eugene acknowledged that there has been some problems with TriCounty Health recently, and said they are linked to staffing. Some employees have retired, and others have left for other jobs, and it’s tough to recruit new staff because of the wages that are offered. “As an administrator, proper staffing is the biggest challenge. Once you have proper staff and they are working as a team, things go very smoothly,” Eugene said. He said it’s difficult to recruit staff right now because of wages that are budgeted. “It’s a huge challenge for TriCounty Health.” The solution, he said, is to provide some additional funding, not to break it into three parts. Eugene said Pend Oreille County should provide more funding to Tri-County Health. He pointed out that commissioner Mike Manus has been in contact with Stevens County, and both Stevens and Pend Oreille County agree that more funding needs to go to TriCounty Health. “There are some steps moving toward corrective actions.” The EDC operates as a county entity. How involved should the commissions be in setting

the EDC’s overall agenda? What direction do you the economic development should be headed in POC? Eugene said he would like to see the EDC focus on recruiting more industry and businesses to Pend Oreille County that would increase sales tax and operating revenue. “I look at Pend Oreille County, and there’s one hardware store in Pend Oreille County and it’s in Ione. I look at what we need to increase sales tax and operating revenue. We need to sell products the go into the construction of buildings. We need car dealerships,” he said. He thinks the EDC should be looking at revenue generators for operating the government so the burden isn’t based on sales tax, which is regressive, or property tax. A majority of the proerty in Pend Oreille County is governmental or agriculture and forestland, where taxes are reduced substantially and the burden is shifted to the average citizen. Eugene said he had heard that Pend Oreille County’s EDC was working on bringing Shopko to Newport, but instead it was built in Oldtown. “It’s kind of frustrating that our efforts in economic development is benefitting our neighbors.” The next priority of the EDC that he heard about was growing cottage industries. “Those do help, but it’s not really the surge that this area needs.” Then he heard about HiTest Sand looking to build a $3 million

smelter in Usk. While he said he doesn’t know how much the EDC had to do with bringing HiTest here, they will be handling the citing and environmental studies. Eugene said Pend Oreille County needs to have an area that is suitable and designated within the comprehensive plan for industry. He suggests Usk because it is close to water, sewer, power, rail and fiber. “It’s a perfect location with the exception for some potential flooding, but those can be engineered. It’s surmountable.” Hi Test Sand is looking at building a $3 million smelter in POC. Do you support the venture? Why or why not? “I’m excited about it, but I also would like to know a little bit more about the environmental impact,” Eugene said. “I’m cautiously optimistic. “I believe, when you hear the word smelter, there’s the 1950s connotation that one typically picks up,” but our environmental controls are significantly different than they were a millennia ago. POC leaders are discussing the formation of an ambulance district. Would you support that idea and do you believe a tax should be levied to secure ambulance services? “It’s not just a Pend Oreille County issue, it’s a rural county issue,” Eugene said. He said the problem relates to the uninsured, and those on Medicare and Medicaid, which

only reimburses for a portion of the cost. “It makes it very difficult for a for-profit or not-for-profit to sustain itself,” he said. Unless reforms are made, the path for the safety of the county’s citizens is a county-wide tax levy. The commissioners are waiting for language to approve an outright ban on retail marijuana sales in Pend Oreille County. Ione is the only city/ town that hasn’t approved a moratorium. Do you think marijuana shops should be allowed in POC? Why or why not? Eugene said he would vote against a retail ban if it came before the board and he was in office. He said he understands that some of the current commissioners are morally opposed to the retail sale of marijuana. “The concern I have is that there will be users. There will be youth users, there will be adult users, regardless of a ban or not.” By failing to have a controlled retail facility that is a destination retail facility, users will use an underground economy, and typically when you have an underground economy it also offers other drugs, such as opioids, that are much more serious that create a bigger challenge. The medical industry is also indicating that patients who use marijuana have been moved off of more serious prescription opioids. “There’s some real benefits to supporting retail marijuana.”

Oldtown man faces prison for kidnapping girlfriend By Sophia Aldous Of The Miner

SANDPOINT – A 27-year-old Oldtown man may have to spend up to a year in prison before a decision is made to release him on probation or have him serve a seven-year prison sentence for kidnapping and attacking his girlfriend May 8. Patrick Allen Geaudreau was charged with first-degree kidnapping, attempted strangulation, aggravated battery, and witness intimidation in Bonner County District Court, where he made an appearance Friday, Oct. 7. He also faces a sentence enhancement for using a set of brass knuckles during the attack. According to district court records, Geaudreau’s former girlfriend, 28-years-old, told Bonner County sheriff’s deputies that Geaudreau attacked her in their vehicle on May 8 as they were making their way up the summit of Hoodoo Mountain. She told police Geaudreau put a choke hold on her twice, but she tried to run away. Geaudreau allegedly recaptured her and beat her, before she

was able to escape with the help of a passing motorist. The victim in the case did not attend the hearing or provide a victim impact statement, according to court documents. Geaudreau initially entered not guilty pleas to all charges, but later recanted and entered an Alford plea to aggravated battery and attempted strangulation. Under the plea, he admits no wrongdoing, but acknowledges that he could be found guilty

in a court of law if the case goes to trial. According to court documents, First District Judge Barabara Buchanan imposed and suspended concurrent three-to seven-year prison terms and retained jurisdiction, also known as a rider. Geaudreau was given credit for 181 days of pretrial incarceration and will be required to successfully complete Bonner County Drug Court as a condition of probation.

you r op i n i on Vote for Kate McAlister

No proof of harassment

To the editor, I have heard about Kate McAlister for years – about her great work with the Chamber of Commerce, her passion for great education, serving on the board of the Forest Bird Charter School, and her work with Angels Over Sandpoint. Every person I talked with had great words for Kate’s involvement in our community. When I finally had the chance to meet her, I found her to be everything I had heard about her, and more. She is the mother of a son serving in our Armed Forces – a man who fights for our country, with a mother who supports him. Kate is a strong supporter of our military, our vets, our seniors and our county and state. She will represent our district for our children, and is a strong supporter of our Constitution. A vote for Kate McAlister, as District I, Seat A Idaho State Representative in the upcoming election, is a vote for all of us who live in this beautiful county and state. -Jeanine Pipella
 Sagle


To the editor, Write in candidate Terry Ford violates the basic principle of law in his letter. (‘Failed leadership in the Sheriff’s Office,’ 1019 Miner). First he admits the accusation against Rep. Scott is shaky with his statement the “alleged harassment” since there is absolutely not a shred of proof. Ford then takes off on a tirade against Sheriff Wheeler and his deputies and uses the approach that in spite of the fact the deputy was “alleged” to have said, with no proof, “Democrats were not a protected class….” It happened and thusly the Sheriff’s Department lacked leadership and engaged in “unlawful behavior.” It is you Mr. Ford that lacks the integrity and leadership to be the Sheriff. Vote Darrell Wheeler for Sheriff. -John Weyant Priest River

Newport Ambulance served community To the editor, In regards to the closing of Newport Ambulance I would hope that the citizens of this county would remember a few things. Steve and Michelle Groom as owners of Newport Ambulance are our neighbors and members of this community. They are our friends. Most of us have been transported by Newport Ambulance or have a family member who was transported by this service. I suspect there are thousands of transports out there made by Newport Ambulance to individuals with no insurance and no means of paying for the life saving service provided to them by Newport Ambulance. I doubt that any of this debt has been paid. I do not know what the future holds for Newport Ambulance but I do know the good that Newport Ambulance has provided to the citizens of Pend Oreille County. I have been there to see how professionally and well the people of this county were served by Newport Ambulance and its management and staff. -Janet Reed Newport

McMorris Rodgers supports Trump over family To the editor, He mocked a disabled reporter, yet her son, Cole, has a disability. He demeans and sexually assaults women; Cathy has daughters Gracie and Brynn Catherine. Most of us draw the line on someone’s speech and actions when it harms our family, but not Cathy McMorris Rodgers. She supports Donald Trump’s words and actions, even above her family. Last May she stated, “In the months ahead he will have to earn the presidency by demonstrating that he has the temperament for the job. I would like to ask him some questions about some of the statements he’s made.” It’s five months later and CMR has not asked him questions. She supports his statements: “When people call you brilliant, it’s always good, especially when the person heads up Russia;” “I would bring back waterboarding and I’d bring a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding;” “I go up and grab and I can do this.” If she will not represent and stand up for herself or her children, she has no intention of standing up for the people of the 5th District. Other Republicans are disavowing Trump, but not Cathy. Vote her out of office this November. -Pat Bates Clarkston, Wash.

Vote McAlister, Howlett, Meyers, Chilocott To the editor, Nov. 8 is a very important day for the future of our country and our Idaho legislative districts 1 and 7. If you believe in and support public education, vote McAlister, Howlett, Meyers and Chilocott. If you believe in and support public infrastructure, vote McAlister, Howlett, Meyers and Chilocott. If you believe in and support affordable health care for all, vote McAlister, Howlett, Meyers and Chilocott. If you believe in and support creating a vibrant economic climate, vote McAlister, Howlett, Meyers and Chilocott. And finally, if you believe in and support the right of all to vote without fear or intimidation, vote McAlister, Howlett, Meyers and Chilocott. -Carrie Logan Sandpoint

Eugene best candidate for evaluating science To the editor, Since we moved back to Pend Oreille County in the 1980s, we have had a number of remarkable county commissioners. Some were Democrat and some Republicans. But during all that time I don’t think we’ve ever had a candidate more qualified for the job than Bob Eugene. Bob has a BS degree in electrical engineering and a masters degree in engineering management, but more importantly, a lifetime of work experience in public safety and service. In the next couple of years, our commissioners will be looking at whether we should be taking over our federal lands, and whether we should welcome a silicone smelter here. I can think of no one in our county more

qualified to evaluate these scientifically complex issues and no one more likely to shine the light of transparency on these questions. Given that our current crop of commissioners has shown an embarrassing lack of transparency, I feel that Bob is our best choice for Commissioner, Position 1. -William L. Betz Newport

Supports Skoog because she’s prepared To the editor, I would like express my support for Commissioner Karen Skoog. I have had the privilege of working with Commissioner Skoog in many different meetings. Karen has always attended the meetings with her research done and represented the citizens of Pend Oreille County with strong and knowledgeable information. Commissioner Skoog has been extremely devoted to the job of commissioner and can be counted on when it is crunch time. Pend Oreille County is well represented by Commissioner Karen Skoog. -Mike Blankenship Kettle Falls

Scott fighting against big government To the editor, Heather Scott is the perfect choice for north Idaho – hands down, she is the one candidate running for District 1-A Representative, who is not allowing big government to push her (or north Idaho) around. She is Endorsed by: Idaho Farm Bureau; NRA; Idaho Second Amendment Alliance; Idaho Republican Liberty Caucus, Idaho Chooses Life, National Federation of Independent Business NFIB/Idaho SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise). Please, pay attention to your candidates and what they stand (or do not stand) for. Heather

Wyman best for Secretary of State To the editor, In the midst of the angry world of politics, which seems uglier by the day, we should all be grateful that Washington’s elections are trustworthy, accurate, and run by Secretary of State Kim Wyman. She’s a leader who has kept Washington’s edge in voter registration, turnout, and ballot security. Washington is consistently ranked at or near the top of the nation in voter turnout, number of voters registered, and election innovations. On top of that, Washington has made strides to keep our voting secure, ensuring that while it is easy for eligible voters to vote, we maintain the integrity of elections. Secretary Wyman led us to these accomplishments. Unfortunately, Secretary Wyman’s opponent has not shown such concern for our elections. Her partisan and misleading attacks betray her lack of understanding of the office and her inexperience. Her call to unlawfully cancel our May Presidential Primary after voting had already begun would have suppressed over 1.4 million votes. We cannot afford to hand this office off to a hyper-partisan and grossly unqualified politician. It is clear that Secretary Wyman is the best person for this job. The vast majority of current county election directors and auditors endorse her, including elections leaders like Ferry County Auditor Diana Galvan, Lincoln County Auditor Shelly Johnston, and Pend

Oreille County Auditor Marianne Nichols. Republican, Democratic, and non-partisan officials endorse Kim Wyman because she’s the only candidate in the race with the qualifications and commitment to run our elections in a nonpartisan and trustworthy manner. All election administrators must be committed to the ideal of impartial and non-partisan administration of elections. We urge all voters to re-elect Secretary of State Kim Wyman, and keep Washington a national leader in voting. -Sam Reed, Ralph Munro, Bruce Chapman Former Washington Secretaries of State Olympia

Jamestown was an experiment To the editor, On Christmas day in 1607, more than two thirds of the first colonists in Jamestown were dead. A hundred starving people desperately ate their milk cows, plow horses and pet dogs. For seven years the plan for this first English colony was repeated. Leadership would divide the men into three groups. One to start the farm, two to build the fort, and three to head off into the woods and find gold. But, everyone slipped away to go hunt for gold. The farm and fort were neglected. This experiment of Communalism was a pure disaster – socialism in action. Then, in 1614, Sir Thomas Dale arrived in Jamestown and found the colonists to be unmotivated and lazy. He initiated a program that gave three acres of land to each household. They would then contribute two barrels of corn at harvest time. The colonists hurried about clearing their land, See letters, 5A

plowing their ground, planting, and watering – so they could produce their own food. That fall, the storehouse was full and the colony started on the road to prosperity. This new program was free-enterprise economics, the freedom to own and control your own property and enjoy its fruits. Yet today, many people, unable to find meaningful jobs, support socialism despite having such poor results and outright failure where it was tried. Our own economic situation over these past eight years can be directly tied to the slide toward socialism. Mandating social justice, and environmental restrictions have produced regulations that stifle job creation and job sustainability. It is important to be informed and engaged to curtail the slide toward socialism and help preserve our free-market system. Representative Heather Scott has been instrumental in raising awareness about the problems stemming from too much regulation. She is working hard to help push back on the economic stranglehold which overregulation has taken on Idaho. -Maureen Paterson Priest River

Fire fuel buildup result of seeking short term profit To the editor, I’ve worked for private, county, state and federal landholders for over 60 years. Forest protection and wise use is my vocation. Recently, Pend Oreille County commissioners have recognized my entire life’s work is in jeopardy to catastrophic fire. (Newport Miner, 10.12.16 “A to Z lawsuit arbitrary, frivolous). This threat is due to the conversion of our region’s forests, over a 110-year period, from a natural, self-sustaining ecosystem, into an immense fire hazard. Let me summarize the situation. We have created a jungle of small trees mixed with immense amounts of natural litter and man generated fuel by the way we log. As an example, clearcutting a stand of timber, which regenerates into a thicket of thousands of stems per acre. The resulting jungle must be followed up with

very expensive thinning and slash disposal. A second example is thinning existing stands too heavily. This initiates natural regeneration resulting in more trees than originally existed. These trees mixed with those mauled down by machinery create fuel loads of thousands of tons per acre. When the focus is shortterm profit for loggers and lumber mills, little or no attention is given to the original goal of fuel reduction. Someone must be responsible and insist that the fuel hazard is actually eliminated. This is the work of foresters whose jobs depend on achieving the desired goal. They must be accountable to the forest and landowner. On National Forest Lands federal policies and budgets are controlled by congress. It matters little who does the actual work, but fuel reduction must be achieved. If not nature will respond mercilessly. It is not influenced by specious, self-serving sales pitches about forest management. It reacts only to reality. -Ted Kardos, Sr. Newport

Can’t jail opponent and have decent society To the editor, I will be watching the Pend Oreille County election results with great interest. I want to see how many Republicans will still vote for Donald Trump based on his performance during the campaign. I am not expecting them to vote for Hillary, but I wonder how they can justify voting for Trump. Trump has promised to put Hillary Clinton in jail if he wins. If she wins, she certainly isn’t going to jail. I don’t know how our justice system could function solely on who is elected president. The idea that a recently elected president can put his political opponents in jail isn’t in line with our democratic republic form of government. Can you see a recently elected sheriff arresting his opponent? Same goes for a recently elected prosecuting attorney indicting their election opponent. I get that many voters are angry and think our system of government is rigged, but we need to have some faith in our community and country. Do you really think that all politicians

are liars and corrupt? Do you really think that if a presidential candidate is elected they will destroy America? Opposing political correctness is now being confused with being civil and restraining one’s words and thoughts. Removing the constraints on our prejudices makes us less decent human beings. We are now in a political regression that takes us back to the 1950’s eliminating most of the political progress we have made as a people. Many people think that being a decent society failed so we should regress to what we used to be to make America great again. We certainly wouldn’t be in favor of eliminating all medical advances achieved since the 1950s, but we are considering doing that for our political system. -Pete Scobby Newport

Vote Trump To the editor, Donald Trump has done nothing as bad as Bill and Hillary Clinton, when it comes to women. Bill committed adultery in the people’s White House. Hillary down graded these women that Bill had sex with or fondled. How about the 12-year-old who got raped, and Hillary got the rapist off and laughed about it? Taxes are a private thing and nobody has to show them. What about all the money the Clintons received from speeches they didn’t show on their tax form? Or what about the Clinton Foundation receiving money from countries that hate us and down grade women? Regarding past letters, Mr. Scobby, you better leave my family out of your letters. The fight of words is between you and me. Since we are of different worlds, we can fight until one of is gone. Yes, I believe in Donald Trump. From day one, no matter what the Democrats say or do against him, they will not change my mind. You say Trump is a phony. Mr. Scobby, look in the mirror. You said “baby killers are the civilians who control the military.” You better go back to school. There has never been civilians running our military.

Have a fire safe Halloween OLYMPIA – To make the most of your Halloween this season, there are several ways to help you and your family stay fire safe. “Taking simple precautions, like making sure costumes and home decorations are flame-resistant, can help prevent injuries and fires,” State Fire Marshal Chuck Duffy said. The Office of the State Fire Marshal recommends practicing these safety

habits for a fire safe and happy Halloween: • Check the label. Purchase costumes and decorations made of “flame-resistant” materials. Flame-resistant means the materials are designed to resist burning and withstand heat. • Avoid baggy or long trailing costumes. Use make-up rather than masks, which could obstruct vision.

Life: State Representative Sage Dixon is 100 percent pro-life and has a rock-solid record of standing up for the most vulnerable among us. Liberty: Rep. Dixon understands that government governs best which governs least. He has fought to preserve state sovereignty, reduce regulations and taxes, and insure that Idaho’s citizens are free to live as they see fit under the law. Pursuit of happiness: Rep. Dixon has shown through his time in the Idaho House that when government gets out of the way, business can thrive, allowing you to get the most out of your hard work. The job of government is to protect our rights. This November, apply this simple test to any candidate you vote for. Are they doing their job?

Forum: Judicial candidates asked about conflicts, criteria for election From Page 1A

Newspapers publisher Michelle Nedved and several students from a high school leadership class. There were no big surprises in the candidates answers. County commission In the county commission race for the District 1 position, in the south part of the county, the contest between Democrat Bob Eugene and Republican Karen Skoog is one of the more watched races. The county commission race between Republicans RJ Hampton and incumbent Steve Kiss for the District 3 seat in the north part of the county has been more low key. County commission candidates were asked about funding priorities and what isn’t being funded. Skoog said that roads, roofs and radios were important to her. She said the county had taken care of some infrastructure needs, such as repairing roofs on county buildings. She said county commissioners were considering rezoning part of the land next to Highway 2 to promote industry. Eugene said Tri County Health is struggling and that he was in favor of supporting them. Hampton agreed health services were important for the aging population. Kiss said budget time was “the season of no” for county commissioners, who are faced with funding requests from county departments. He said of the county’s $30 million budget, $10 million goes to roads. County commission candidates were asked if ambulance service is a county responsibility. Kiss said it was and that the private business model doesn’t seem to be working, partially because of the small reimbursement for Medicaid patients. He said county commissioners hadn’t made a decision yet but even if they decide to form an Ambulance District, it would go before voters for funding. Hampton said that ambulance service was definitely needed but that the county could benefit from working more closely with the Kalispel Tribe, which has an ambulance. Skoog agreed it was a vitally important service. She echoed Kiss’ remarks that the commissioners could form the district, but it would be up to voters to fund it. Eugene said the current situation of using fire district ambulances, who have to hand off to another ambulance

on Spokane runs, was a band aid solution. He said the county would need an Emergency Medical Service levy to provide a predictable source of funding. County commission candidates were asked what the county can do to promote economic development. Hampton said that Pend Oreille County had a challenge because it was so close to Idaho. He said he would talk with other border communities such as Lewiston-Clarkston to see what they have done to attract and retain businesses. Kiss said that economic development has been difficult. He said that recruitment of businesses hasn’t been as important as retaining businesses. Eugene said a sub area plan that would allow for industrial zoning might be part of the solution. Skoog said she would like to secure some water rights for economic development. County commission candidates were asked if they would retain current planning commissioners whose terms were expiring or replace them, as was done in 2012. Skoog said county commissioners made a conscious decision to open up all seats on the various county commissions to new prospects, not just the Planning Commission. She said attracting new people was good, as well as getting to know who is on the commission. Eugene said planning had changed a lot since 2012. For one thing, conditional use permits, which were formally decided by the Planning Commission, now are an administrative decision made by the Community Development head. Kiss said he had served for years on the Planning Commission. He noted that 20 years ago, Planning Commissioners met four times a year. Now they meet twice a month. While he voted against replacing the planning commissioners in 2012, he said the county commissioners needed to know the planning commissioners better. He said that was the purpose of opening up nominations. Hampton said there simply needed to be more community involvement and he encouraged pubic participation. County commission candidates were asked if they support the HiTest Sand’s proposal to build a $300 million silicon smelting plant in mid county. Kiss said all the commissioners know is what HiTest officials have told them but that if it is to be believed, it is a good

project. He said HiTest officials haven’t been very forthcoming about the technology involved but have assured him there will be no environmental problems. Hampton said it was too early to tell if he could support it. He said he had found a similar sized plant in Iceland. He said if this plant was similar to that one, he could support it. Skoog said rezoning would be required and that would provide opportunity for public feedback. She said the project could be a boon for the county. Eugene said he was cautiously optimistic and he saw the smelter as potentially viable. He said the word smelter has negative connotations. He said he tries to use the term processing facility. He said environmental safeguards were far better than they used to be. He said he was most concerned about what comes out of smokestack. Judicial Both Superior Court positions are up for election this year. Superior court judges handle cases in Ferry, Stevens and Pend Oreille counties. Judges were asked what criteria voters should consider when electing judges. C. Olivia Irwin said voters should consider the total person. She said experience in areas other than law was important. She quoted Cornel West, who said, “Never forget that justice is what love looks like in public.” Her opponent, incumbent Pat Monasmith, said that judges need to be patient, dignified and courteous at a minimum. In addition they should be prepared and issue timely decisions. They need to articulate the reasons for the decisions, he said. The race for the other judge position doesn’t have an incumbent, as Judge Allen Nielson is retiring this year. Jessica Taylor Reeves and Terry L. Williams are competing for the open position. Taylor says that voters should consider a judge’s education and endorsements, as well as their experience. Williams said that voters should consider a candidate’s integrity and judicial temperament. He said it is important judges don’t have preconceived notions when approaching a case. Judicial candidates were asked what they have done to promote access to the judicial system for people with limited means. Monasmith said that starting a system of “court calls” that allows attorneys to appear telephonically, saving attorneys a trip to Pend Oreille County. Since many attorneys work in Spokane and elsewhere, not having to drive to Newport can save the clients some money, he said. Irwin said she does a lot of pro bono, or free work, as well as work on a sliding fee schedule, based on ability to pay. She said she worked on a Seattle occupy case. Williams says he gives seminars for agencies like Rural Resources to help people deal with the court system. Taylor said she worked as a family court facilitator in Pend Oreille County. She said she helped create an investigator position in Stevens County. Candidates were asked how much discretion a judge has in no contact

order cases. Taylor said a judge has broad discretion in such cases. Williams agreed and added that it is important to be a good listener. Irwin said she is a believer in “restorative justice,” a concept that focuses on reconciliation. Monasmith said a judge needs to consider if there is adequate proof in no contact order motions. He said that it isn’t unheard of for a person to use a no contact order as leverage in a divorce or child custody case. Judicial candidates were asked how they handled a situation in which ethical duties conflicted with their responsibilities. Irwin said she couldn’t remember such a case and even if she did, she didn’t think she could talk about it. She said when she worked with adults who had been adopted as children and were looking for their birth parents, she had a conflict when she couldn’t tell the person who their mother was because the mother hadn’t given permission at the

time of adoption. Monasmith said he worked as a public defender. Since attorneys can’t misrepresent facts to the court, he sometimes needed to let clients know how to phrase things, so he could make truthful statements to the court. Taylor described a situation when she was filling in as District Court commissioner in which defense and prosecution attorneys weren’t given the questionnaire prospective jurors filled out. She said she sought advice from the bar and they told her it was up to the District Court Judge she was filling in for to resolve it. Williams said he once noticed a client lying in a deposition. He said he told the client he would have to find another attorney if he was going to lie. Candidates were asked about alternative sentencing for offenders. Williams said it is one of the options a judge has. He says he would look at it on a case-by-case basis, but looking at it from a society basis, he said some may

not be satisfied with an alternative to jail sentence. Taylor said the purpose of jail sentences was to punish and deter criminals. She said there were some alternative sentences that could accomplish that. Monasmith said that electronic home monitoring was often used pre sentence. He said he had granted it in one case in which the defendant wanted the county to pay for it. Monasmith denied his motion and was upheld by the Court of Appeals. Irwin said judges should look at the economic impact of jailing people. State Representatives Incumbent Republican Reps. Shelly Short and Joel Kretz said lack of good jobs were the biggest problem in the 7th District, which includes Pend Oreille, Stevens, Ferry and a portion of Spokane County. They both favor the return of federal lands to the state. Short is running unopposed and Kretz’ opponent, See Forum, 10A

Forum: Larson unopposed for PUD From Page 9A

Libertarian Mike Foster, didn’t attend the candidate forum. Kretz said the state gets a far better return on the land it manages than the federal government does. When asked about state funding priorities, Short said that the House GOP wanted a special budget for education. Kretz said the fund education first plan the Republicans offered would get the money for education the state Su-

preme Court is requiring. They were asked how the state could fund education without relying on local levies. Kretz said the problem was that property values in the richer areas dwarfed rural communities. He said there may be a way to even out the levies so that richer districts contributed to less wealthy ones. Short said there were too many state regulations about how the money is to be spent. She favors letting the districts decide more.

They were asked where they stood on Initiative 1433, which calls for an increase in minimum wage and requires paid sick leave. Short and Kretz were both opposed, saying it will harm small businesses. PUD commissioner Rick Larson is running unopposed for the non partisan seat, but he also fielded questions. He said that the doubling of the reconnect fees was necessary to support the infrastructure. He said the PUD provided adequate notice in the newspapers and on their website. He said he isn’t in favor of the PUD offering retail fiber service sales, but something needs to be done to get a retail service provider to serve the north county.

Cusick has good homecoming, beats Northport

By Don Gronning Of The Miner

CUSICK – The Cusick Panthers football team easily handled Northport in their homecoming game Friday, Oct. 14, getting a 48-6 win. “We knew they were struggling,” Cusick coach Troy Hendershott said. “By the end of the first quarter, we knew the dagger was in.” After running up a 48-0 first half lead, the On Deck: Vs. Republic: Friday, Oct. 21, 7 p.m.

starters came out and some younger players got some game time, including eighth grader Dylan Reijonen. Reijonen asked if he could play for the high school after the junior high program was canceled last week. “We checked with the WIAA and they said it was all right, since there was no junior high team,” Hendershott said. “He ended up leading the team in rushing.” Reijonen gained 40 yards. “We had eight or nine guys that carried for a similar amount,” Hendershott said. The Panthers are used to the defense scoring points, so the fact that it hasn’t until this game was somewhat surprising, Hendershott said. They changed that

against Northport, scoring two touchdowns on fumble recoveries. Roddy Pierre picked up a fumble and returned it 14 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter. Early in the second quarter Cannon Keogh picked up a fumble and returned it 47 yards for a score. Keogh also scored the first touchdown for Cusick on a two yard run. Colton Hansen accounted for three Panther touchdowns, running for two TDs, one for 13 yards and one for one yard. He also caught a 55-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jed Cupp. Hendershott said the Panthers changed their quarterback, going with Cupp after Tanner Shanholtzer was hurt a couple games ago.

Hendershott said moving Shanholtzer to receiver allows the Panthers to take advantage of his downfield blocking, as well as pass receiving. Hendershott said that the Panther kicking game has improved with the addition of Mexican exchange student Alberto Magana, who kicks off for Cusick. “He’s kicked a couple of touchbacks but the biggest thing is his accuracy,” Hendershott said. “He can pretty well kick to the spot you want.” Cusick has a 2-1 Northeast 1B North conference record and a 4-2 overall record. They are in third place in the conference, behind Republic and Inchelium. The Panthers host Republic Friday, Oct. 21, at 7 p.m.

Spartan Harriers take home trophy for boys’ cross-country By Sophia Aldous Of The Miner

PINEHURST – Priest River Lamanna High School boys’ cross-country team won the Ben Castro Invitational meet at Kellogg High School for the second year in a row Thursday, Oct. 13. The boys’ overall official score was 47. According to coach Lance Clark, actual times were hard to determine, as a clock malfunction during the race prevented exact times as runners came in, but three Priest River boys placed in the top ten. “(Priest River’s) boys won the Kellogg meet for the second year in a row,” said Clark. “We had Slava, Caleb, and Cameron all in the top 10. Jordan ran 11th. Nicodemus ran well just below or at 19:00. Leif ran a personal best at 19:18, and the rest of the boys did really well.” Tentative results are Cameron Parkes – 17:10; Caleb Gleason – 17:12 to 17:15; Slava Negreiev – low to mid 18’s; Jordan Phillips – mid 18’s; Nicodemus Eisler – 18:50 to 18:57; Leif Williams – 19:18; Spencer Sedgwick – 21:32; Drayven

Ayers – 22:02, and Kyler Lord – 23:32. The Priest River Lamanna High School girls’ cross-country team came in fourth overall with an official score of 85. “Our girls did well too,” praised Clark. “I am proud of all of our cross-country harriers.” Anara Edurne ran 21:24, earning fourth overall in girls’ varsity, while Sharnia Hogan ran her personal best at a low 24-minute time. Izzie Schmidt ran just below 25 min, while Julia Rantala ran her personal best at 25 minutes flat. Karleigh Durham ran her personal best in the 29-minute range, while Rienie Proctor ran better as well, according to Clark. “Our team is looking forward to our championship race here at home at Priest River Lamanna High School,” Clark said. “We would love for all to come watch. We will need volunteers to be on the course. If you are interested, come see me or Matt George around 1 p.m. to get assignments.” The girls’ race is set for 1:30 p.m. and the boys’ is set for 2:15 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20.

NEWPORT – The Newport Grizzlies football team ran roughshod over Lakeside Friday, Oct. 21, getting a 41-7 home win. “It was the best our team has played against a quality opponent since I have been at Newport,” Newport coach Zac Farnam said. “The kids came out aggressive and physical from the start, and never let off the gas.” Newport got its first touchdown early in the first quarter when Koa Pancho hit Danny Bradbury with a 16-yard TD pass. Late in the first quarter, Pancho scored on a dive. Farnam said Pancho is playing well. “He is starting to develop into a high level quarterback and is getting more and more comfortable each week,” Farnam said. “His ability to run with the ball makes him tough to stop.” Newport continued to roll in the second quarter, with three touchdowns and a field goal. Pancho hit Bradbury for a five-yard touchdown pass. Pancho then ran for a 12-yard touchdown On Deck: At Freeman: Friday, Oct. 21, 7 p.m.

and followed it up with a six-yard touchdown run. Kai Thomas continued to click, making five extra point kicks in the first half, then kicking a 29-yard field goal as the half ended, with Newport leading 38-0. The Grizzlies didn’t let up after the half. Early in the third quarter, Thomas kicked a 24-yard field goal. Lakeside finally got on the board in the third quarter with a three-yard touchdown pass. The teams played a scoreless fourth quarter. Newport dominated on offense, with 320 yards, while holding Lakeside to 171 yards. Pancho completed 11 of 14 passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 123 yards and three touchdowns. Jesse Reyes rushed for 50 yards on a dozen carries. He also had a 38yard kickoff return. Receiving was spread among five different pass catchers. “The nice part is that Koa has plenty of other players to use at his disposal,” Farnam said. “We have a lot of depth at the skill positions and four or five kids that need their touches each night.” Bradbury had four catches for 45 yards and two touchdowns. Tug Smith caught three passes for 42 yards, Owen Leslie caught two passes for 11 yards, and Johnny Quandt and Reyes each caught a pass. On defense, Quandt led Newport with 6.5 tackles. Bradbury got six tackles. Farnam said the whole team played well. “I thought that as a whole, the entire team played above average and pretty close to great for some,” he said. In other Northeast A League action, Deer Park beat Medical Lake 42-0 and Freeman beat Colville 21-7. Riverside and Chewelah had the week off. The win gave Newport a 4-1 Northeast A League record, putting them in second place behind Deer Park, which has a 5-0 league record. The Grizzlies are 5-2 overall. They travel to Freeman for a game Friday, Oct. 21. That game starts at 7 p.m.

Timberlake gets by Spartans 38-13 By Don Gronning

Of The Miner SPIRIT LAKE – The Priest River Spartans lost 38-13 to Timberlake Friday, Oct. 14. “It was a disappointing loss for sure,” Priest River coach Shane Douglas said. “We started slow, made some early mistakes that got us down 21-0 in the first quarter.” The Spartans started to move the ball in the second quarter scoring on a 20-yard Anthony Storro to Collin Dietrick pass play. Caleb Blancher kicked the extra point. Storro made a tackle on the one-yard line to seemingly prevent a Timberlake touchdown with 2 seconds in the half. But the referees ruled it a touchdown and Priest River went into the half down 28-7. The Spartans came out and scored early in the third quarter

on another Storro to Dietrick pass, this one a 15-yard play. The extra

second half with their ball control running offense,” Douglas said. The Spartans had 189 yard rushing, led by Blancher, who On Deck: At Bonners Ferry: Friday, Oct. 21, 7 p.m.

picked up 100 yards. The Spartans also had 189 yards receiving, led by Dietrick with 83 yards and two touchdowns on five catches. The Spartans focus now is on Bonners Ferry. “We win the game, we go to state. We lose our season is over,” Douglas said. Bonners Ferry and Priest River are tied for second in the Intermountain League, with a 1-1 record. They are behind Timberlake and ahead of Kellogg. Bonners Ferry beat Kellogg 34-6 last week. The Bonners Ferry game will be played in Bonners Ferry Friday, Oct. 21, at 7 p.m.

Ichelium tops Selkirk 46-2 By Don Gronning Of The Miner

IONE – The Selkirk Ranger football team found themselves facing another experienced, senior heavy team when they played Inchelium Friday at home. Inchleium won 46-2. “We gave up a few big On Deck: Vs. Northport: Friday, Oct. 21, 7 p.m.

plays,” Selkirk coach Jeremy Link said. “It was hard to stop their run-

ning attack.” Link said the Rangers defensive line was one of the highlights. “We played well on the defensive line,” Link said. The defensive line, comprised of Wyatt Stoddard, Brayden Taylor, Jared Taft and Steven Issikides, were responsible for six quarterback sacks. In addition, Stoddard and Hunter Carmen pounce tackled an Inchelium player in the end zone for a safety after Issikides knocked the ball out of the quarterback’s

hand. It was the Rangers’ sole score on the night.

‘We played well on the defensive line.’ Jeremy Link Selkirk coach

Jacob Couch has returned to play, although he isn’t 100 percent yet, Link said. Still he was responsible for 13 tackles and was the leading rusher, with 62 yards on 23 carries. He completed

seven of 29 passes for 102 yards and an interception. Peter McAnerin led the Rangers in tackles, with 14. Carmen had 10 tackles. The Rangers missed the play of Tristan Chantry, who had to attend a prescheduled event. The Rangers have a 2-6 overall record. They are 0-3 in Northeast 1B North conference play.

Lady Grizzlies balance week with win, loss By Sophia Aldous Of The Miner

NEWPORT – The Newport High School girls’ soccer team won a match against Riverside last Tuesday, Oct. 11 at a home game and lost to Lakeside at an away game Thursday, Oct. 13. Their 6-5 win against Riverside marked the team’s first win of the season. The Lady Grizzlies were down 3-1 at halftime, but after an invigorating pep talk from assistant coach Laura Variety, the team came out strong to take control of the pitch back from the Rams. Lydia Jurgens started the game at defense, but moved to forward in the second half. “She was on fire,” said coach Jeremy Lewis. “She had four hard earned goals and a great assist to Cydni Lewis. I’m so happy for the girls and our first league win. Paige Dice is getting more comfortable in goal and we are steadily playing better.” Newport had 12 shots on goal with seven saves and On Deck: Vs. Freeman: Thursday, Oct. 18, 5 p.m.

Riverside had 15 shots on goal with five saves. Though Newport went on to lose to Lakeside 3-0 last Thursday, Lewis said the girls played well in the rain. He described the defense with Aryonna Willouby, Corrina Cauchy, and the Jurgens sisters, Emily and Lydia, as, “Getting better every game.”  “Emily Jurgens in particular has really taken her defensive roll to another level,” said Lewis. “We have a couple tough games next week to finish the season, but I think we are going to get another win.” Newport had five shots on goal and Lakeside had 18. Lakeside had four saves and Newport had 12. The Grizzlies will face the Freeman Scotties at Ellersick Field for Seniors’ Night Thursday, Oct. 18 at 5 p.m.

Medicare Part D enrollment starts Oct. 15 IONE – Enrollment in Medicare’s prescription drug program (Part D) started Oct. 15 and runs through Dec. 7. If you’re Medicare-eligible and want to enroll in Part D or change your current plan, beat the last minute rush by enrolling early. The Washington State Office of Insurance Commissioner’s Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors (SHIBA) can answer questions about Medicare Part D and provide help on other parts of Medicare. Important things to consider before Open Enrollment: • Do you have a current Medicare Part D, Advantage, or Supplement plan? • Do you know if your plan still meets your needs? Plans can change their coverage for drugs, services, and providers. Your own needs can also change, like the medications you need, your finances, your marital status. It is important to check your plan for any coverage change. Check with your medical providers, too, to make sure they accept Medicare assignment. If you receive help paying for Medicare through the Medicare savings Plan (MSP), you must reapply annually. You will receive a notice about this and must respond. To attend a public enrollment event on Part D in North Pend Oreille County, drop in at the Ione Senior Center on these Open Enrollment dates: • Oct. 20, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. • Nov. 17, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Come prepared with your current prescriptions in the container with the original label or ask your doctor for a list. For more information, call 1-509-685-6077. Leave a message with your name and contact info. You may also ask to be put in touch with a SHIBA volunteer in North Pend Oreille County to schedule an appointment. SHIBA advisors do not sell anything and are not associated with any companies. They offer free unbiased information about Medicare.

obituari es Jimmie Lee Carney

Maryanne Sauer

Cusick

Newport

Jimmie Lee Carney went home to his Heavenly Father Oct.13. He was 82. His devotion to his family and his firm Carney belief in God supported him in his final days after his stroke. Jim was born to Lee and Donna Carney on Nov. 7, 1933, in Colby, Kan. In 1936 his family moved to Twin Falls, Idaho, where his parents had a lumberyard. He was very active in FFA and agriculture classes in High School and graduated in 1951. He then went to Warner Pacific Bible College in Portland, Ore. He married Norma Jane Porter on July 18, 1952. They had five children: Steve, Roger, Curtis, Winnetta and Sean. In Twin Falls he ran a fleet of trucks hauling hay and later farm produce until 1962 when he moved to Western Washington and ran a boys’ home for King County Juvenile Court. In 1965 he moved his family to Coeur d’Alene. There he logged for Curt Nordstrom and Henry Sint with John Darlas being one of his sawyer partners. In 1969 he started framing and siding houses for Baker and Lovelyn and Bob Pilot, eventually working into his own company – Carney Construction. His extended family comprised his successful construction crews. On Feb. 13, 1977, he married Beatrice (Bea) Neely bringing three more boys to the family: Kevin, Kurt and Kale. Never giving up the farming and ranching of his youth, he started raising Galloway cattle yielding to the pressure of his neighbor, Elmo Abbott. In 1993 the ranching took him up to Cusick, Wash., where he lived the remainder of his life with his wife, raising horses and cattle. Jim shared several interests with his children and extended family. They would compete side by side shooting skeet and trap on the shooting range, showing his cattle at the cattle shows, and competing on his cutting horses he raised. He also enjoyed water skiing, boating, hunting and fishing with his family at his side. He is preceded in death by his parents, Lee and Donna Carney and an infant brother. He is survived by his wife Bea, eight children; Steve (Jan), Roger (Julie), Curtis (Lana), Kevin (Shari), Kurt (Dolly), Kale (eLane), Winnetta (Well), Sean (Jani), 28 grandchildren and numerous greatgrandchildren. There will be a Memorial Service honoring Jim at True North Church, 10583 N. Government Way, Hayden, Idaho at 2 p.m., Friday, Oct. 21. A graveside service will be held at Plains Cemetery, Plains, Mont., at 1 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 22. Our most heartfelt gratitude to our precious family, and friends who were like extended family.

Maryanne F. Sauer passed away peacefully Oct. 12 at the age of 93 in residence at the Long Term Care in Sauer Newport. She was born in Columbus, Ohio, where she graduated from Upper Arlington High School. She graduated from Denison University in Granville, Ohio. Maryanne married David C. Sauer in 1945, and they shared the love of golf and many adventures together. They retired to Naples, Fla. for 20-years. After David passed away, Maryanne moved to Newport in 2007 to be close to her son Larry and his family.  She is preceded in death by husband, David, and daughter, Carol Kolarik. She is survived by her son Larry (Nancy) Sauer, granddaughter Carey (Thomas) Schwarzer, great grandchildren Brian and Zoe, and granddaughter Rose (Travis) Low, and great-grandchildren, Tucker and Lane. To Maryanne’s friends—raise a glass of bourbon, preferably Old Crow. She would be the first to tell you she had a great run “for an old broad!” Sherman-Knapp Funeral Home in Newport is in charge of arrangements. Family and friends are invited to sign the online guest book at shermanknapp.com.

Joseph Freeman Fisher Colville

Joseph Freeman Fisher of Colville passed away Oct. 7, at the age of 77. He was born to Gerald and Lillian (Zinserling) Fisher Oct. 13, 1938. Fisher He is survived by his brother Eugene Fisher of Colville; an uncle, Robert Wood and family, of Newport; nephews Darren Hansen and family of Colville; Gerald Fisher and family of Usk, and long-time friend Charlene Wood of Newport. Joe was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Tom and David Fisher and a sister, Linda (Hansen) Brown. Joe was raised at Ruby, Wash. He graduated from Cusick High School in 1956. His next pursuit was obtaining his Engineer Degree from the Colorado School of Mines, graduating in 1961. During the summer of his junior/senior year of college he was working in Thule, Greenland, for the US Army’s Arctic Research program in the Polar Ice Cap. In 1961 Joe attended officer training at Ft. Belvoir, Va., and then relocated to the military base at Ft. Campbell, Ky., because of his engineering knowledge. Upon discharge from the military, Joe began his life long career in mining in Alaska where eventually

he became President of the Alaska Miners Assn. as well as GM of Alaska Gold in Nome, Alaska. In 1963 Joe was mining engineer for Goodnews Mine in Platinum, Alaska. Due to Joe’s vast experience and knowledge of all aspects of placer mining and gold dredging, he was often called upon for assistance for other mining projects in Alaska, Washington and Canada. The State of Alaska used his knowledge of

mining to construct two fish ladders built in tunnels around waterfalls in Wrangell, Alaska, and on the Russian River. The one he helped construct on the Russian River is beneficial not only to the salmon, but is a major tourist attraction for Alaska. Always an avid hunter and fisherman, being especially fond of moose hunting, Joe found it important to share these times with family and friends. Joe was a private

person, a man of integrity and honor, and a man who never wanted recognition. He was a benefactor to many civic institutions including the Alaska Zoo, Alaska Museum and the Iditarod. He was instrumental in bringing the Ponderay Newsprint to Usk, which provided many local jobs. After retirement Joe purchased his dream home on the water’s edge of Deep Lake, Wash. where he spent the remainder of

his life. This is where his greatest joy was found reminiscing with family and friends. A private family committal will be held in Newport, at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to Cancer Northwest. Please visit the online memorial and sign the guest book at www. danekasfuneralchapel. com. Danekas Funeral Chapel & Crematory has been entrusted with the arrangements.

p o l i c e r e p o rt s Editor’s note: The police reports, taken from dispatch logs provided to The Miner by law enforcement agencies, are not intended to be an exact report, but rather a comprehensive list of police calls in Pend Oreille and West Bonner counties. Dispatch also fields calls for the Kalispel Tribe property in Airway Heights. Certain police calls are generally omitted because of space constraints. These include but aren’t limited to ambulance calls for illness, unfounded alarms, traffic stops, dogs at large, abandoned vehicles, 911 hang–ups and civil standbys. All dispositions for the police reports are assumed to be active, assist or transfer at press time. The police reports are updated each weekday on The Miner Online. Pend Oreille County
