    Wilding the West Murray’s Choice Our Sacrifice

    SENATOR MURRAY HAS MADE HER CHOICE, INTRODUCING  SENATE BILLS  FOR WILDERNESS AND WILDING, SACRIFICING THE USE OF OUR PUBLIC NATIONAL PARKS, PRIVATE LANDS  AND RIVERS.  PLACING RESTRICTIONS ON PUBLIC AND PRIVATE RESOURCES OF, AND IN WASHINGTON, IDAHO, CALIFORNIA, AND OREGON STATE

    Someone else’s choice = your sacrifice

    There are some words and terms with a local parallel which you will quickly recognize like: STAKEHOLDERS, SUSTAINABILITY, UNSUSTAINABLE, COLLABORATE ,WATER UNCERTAINTY, JOBS, GREEN ECONOMY, BIODIVERSITY, ACCOUNTABILITY, TRANSPARENCY, RESTORATION, WATER QUALITY, POLLUTION,

    STATUS QUO (which is probably code for locals trying to maintain their legal, economic, citizenship and constitutional rights)

     INEQUALITY, EQUALITY, INDIGENOUS, LOCAL, ORGANIC, ORGANIC AGRICULTURE, BIODIVERSITY, NATURAL, SUSTAINABLE GROWTH, CLIMATE CHANGE, ADAPTIVE MANAGEMENT, MONITORING, FAIRNESS, JUSTICE, DISTRIBUTIONAL JUSTICE, GOVERNANCE (as opposed to representative government) and on and on. We have been thoroughly sound-bite-bitten by those same UN mantra bumper sticker slogans and terms around here since the beginning of the local collaborator’s stakeholder “settlement” process. It all seems to be frighteningly in sync as well with what is referred to as the UN’s Millennium Declaration and Millennium Development Goals.

    “Well, if I wanted all the people out of Northern California, what would I do?”

    I’d lock up all the natural resources.  I would remove all the infrastructure… like the DAMS. After some more time went by… I’d have the National Forest in a quasi wilderness area, I’d have the loggers gone…Get rid of the pesky diggers..the mining community. I’d go after the agriculture community…attempt to eliminate them.  I’d go up stream…get rid of the  dams, remove the water inventory and electrical generation for 70,000 homes.

    Letter to KBC News by Mark Johnson, 4/12/16

    “Well, if I wanted all the people out of Northern California, what would I do?”
    I’d lock up all the natural resources.  I would remove all the infrastructure… like the Klamath dams.

    I would put the people on printed money heroin…and they would get addicted to transfer payments and free government services.

    After some more time went by… I’d have the Klamath National Forest in a quasi wilderness area, I’d have the loggers gone…Get rid of the pesky diggers..the mining community. I’d go after the agriculture community…attempt to eliminate them.  I’d go up stream…get rid of the 4 dams, remove the water inventory and electrical generation for 70,000 homes.  The warm nutrient rich waters from above the dams would not be cleaned by the dreaded green algae.  The nutrient rich without the dams…the water would be warmer down stream, the O2 level less…and the fish kill cycles greater, and deeper.

    Then I’d go to the Klamath Basin…and slowly, surely…eliminate the federal water projects, the potato farmers, the alfalfa farmers,

    I’d make it all a big wetlands area like before the white man.

    Then as a government… I’d be broke…my govt printed money would have no purchasing power. My debt would be so great that I would have to print money to pay the debt which equals inflation.

    The people I tricked with BIA and O and C transfer payments would have no means of support, no raw materials….and no land for wealth creation.

    Those rural people would have to migrate to the cities, or they would have to die early…. like the Native American does on the reservation system.

    U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time

    It’s not really politics so much as it is Math.

    Take out enough infrastructure…get a welfare govt like the one we have in the US now……. then you can share with Venzuela:

    Someone else’s choice = your sacrifice
    Posted on the www.klamathbasincrisis.org / KBC News Discussion Forum by Finnious T Fogbottom Tue April 12, 2016
    Over the past 25 years over 800 dams of various sizes have been destroyed in our nation alone. That is a bit scary since one of the big differences between first and third world countries is found in the existence or absence of fully functioning dams. The politically correct World Bank had been busily financing the construction of Third World dams by the way, until there arose too much pressure from their otherwise Green allies. Truly when the ethically protected usage, flow and storage of water is harnessed by and for humankind freedom can have a tendency to abound, when combined with free markets that is. With the availability of resources as such there also comes great opportunity for individual advancement in terms of education, employment, wealth, strength, vitality, health and the pursuit of happiness. That also leads directly to the enhancement of the general fitness, financial soundness, global relevance, unity, security and wellbeing of a nation, from the bottom up.

    On the other hand if a certain sort would like to subversively take control of a nation an obvious place to begin would be to gain despotic, destructive and disruptive control over its waters. Because with that also comes authority over many other things that we can’t live without like food, wealth, jobs, electricity etc. It hasn’t gone without notice that over recent decades there have been many an alarming attempt and success in the movement to drain our citizenry and nation of its wealth, rights, freedom, future, confidence, trust of government, unadulterated history and might. Simultaneously a form of top down centralized constituency free governance has been worming its way into the political landscape of our nation and even the world.

    So, what if there really were dedicated and well funded operations in existence which work tirelessly to undermine capitalism, and with that reshape the balance of local, regional, national and global power? What if their preferred and nearly perfected disruptive mechanism is simply the oppressive manipulation of water, species, rights, equality issues, sea and land policy? What if all of this was falling into place through Marxist inspired radical political correctness and environmentalism, empowered by the tragic consensus, collaboration and support of a manipulated populace which has apocalyptically yet proudly exchanged the truth for a lie? Well, that just may be what is currently taking place near and far.

    Not too long before the seemingly treacherous and unsupported agreement to remove four Klamath River dams was signed (with blatant indifference to voter or congressional approval) it was more than a little disquieting to find out that Dan Keppen, (former head of the Klamath Water Users Association) had met with the Obama Whitehouse and United Nations associates in person to discuss water issues, water policy and resolution templates including the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA) etc. That time line may be coincidental, still it is important to consider how many of the KBRA collaboration buzz words are found throughout a UN report titled MANAGING WATER UNDER UNCERTAINTY AND RISK. It is quite revealing to search out (control/F) certain words in that document. There are some words and terms with a local parallel which you will quickly recognize like: STAKEHOLDERS, SUSTAINABILITY, UNSUSTAINABLE, COLLABORATE ,WATER UNCERTAINTY, JOBS, GREEN ECONOMY, BIODIVERSITY, ACCOUNTABILITY, TRANSPARENCY, RESTORATION, WATER QUALITY, POLLUTION, STATUS QUO (which is probably code for locals trying to maintain their legal, economic, citizenship and constitutional rights) INEQUALITY, EQUALITY, INDIGENOUS, LOCAL, ORGANIC, ORGANIC AGRICULTURE, BIODIVERSITY, NATURAL, SUSTAINABLE GROWTH, CLIMATE CHANGE, ADAPTIVE MANAGEMENT, MONITORING, FAIRNESS, JUSTICE, DISTRIBUTIONAL JUSTICE, GOVERNANCE (as opposed to representative government) and on and on. We have been thoroughly sound-bite-bitten by those same UN mantra bumper sticker slogans and terms around here since the beginning of the local collaborator’s stakeholder “settlement” process. It all seems to be frighteningly in sync as well with what is referred to as he UN’s Millennium Declaration and Millennium Development Goals.

    I was sad but not astonished as well to see in Keppen’s Herald and News article that he was also happy about the success enjoyed by Klamath Blue Zone programs and projects. Here too rises up the nagging fear that KBZone may be just one more local manifestation of a citizen’s Marxist Manifesto. It does make you wonder for sure when the recent H & N Blue Zone article spewed this: “A community effort …these measures may look like someone coming into town and arbitrarily telling people what they can and can’t do. But he said there comes a time when a community needs to consider how an individual’s decisions impact the entire group… Sometimes, as a society, we have to ask and answer some very hard questions about what is best for all of us…Similarly, he continued, when it comes to health, sometimes we’re going to have to make difficult choices and make individual sacrifices in favor of benefiting a larger population.” It sounds like they would also like to eventually make some UN similar choices for us: choices for our improved healthy happy alternative communal sustainable future. In the end it is all about others answering questions and making choices for us – for the greater good of the greater number of course!

    Sky Lakes Medical Center (for the greater good) is NOW telling us that it is not making Blue Zones like choices for us, yet visitors can no longer buy sugared anything on the hospital premises. It is so nice that we have so many caring people running around close to where we live making “good choices” for we dummies! We dummies who don’t know good from bad, right from wrong, evil from good and on and on. A few more Soviet style consensus councils and we just may be on our way to heaven on earth, and peace and unity without God. Until things literally and predictably go to Hell.

    So, it should go without saying that there is as usual just a whole lot at stake in the upcoming elections. Especially when one considers that no truly conservative politician could ever have anything to do with the Marxist inspired, anti-republic KBRA etc., Blue Zones or the whole mess of tax and spend Citizens for Great Sounding but Eventually Self-Destructive Stuff. At their core one must fully consider the probability that whether by naivety, greed, misdirection, foolishness or malice they share the some of the political leanings as found in the bulk of our nation’s enemies past and present. It is all a receipt for disaster.

    As we discover through inquiry and questions what the candidates are all about and where their roots are fastened, we will then have a good idea of where they are coming from and where they are trying to go, or take us. In the end don’t vote for anyone who will try to get you to agree to sacrifice what you can’t afford to lose to someone who hasn’t earned it, then take you somewhere you don’t want your family, your friends, yourself, community, city, county, state or country, or world to go, let alone become!

    Oh yes, where did that $48,000,000 is misappropriated BOR funds end up? Here’s to a certain sort of upcoming indictment.

    The Civilian Conservation Corps
    Olympic NP: Historic Resource Study (Chapter 5)
    Camp Elwha. Among the most active CCC camps within the present Olympic National Park was Camp Elwha, located on a gently sloping hillside several hundred yards south of the present Elwha Ranger Station. As one of the first CCC camps established on the north Olympic Peninsula, the arrival of the “forest army” on the Elwha River aroused great interest among local residents. On 10 June 1933 the Port Angeles Evening News devoted headline space and several columns to describing the establishment of the Elwha Camp, known as F-17:
    Two hundred and twenty strong, the 936th company Civilian Conservation Corps of the United States is in camp on “My Rose” creek up the Elwha canyon, within a stone’s throw of the soldiers’ bridge—and taking part in the greatest single government venture these parts have glimpsed since spruce division days of the world war. . . . In a tented city now, the “new forestry army” is rapidly completing a modern and elaborate camp headquarters in a clearing between Griff and My Rose creeks. On the site, 100,000 board feet of lumber is rapidly taking shape in the form of barracks, headquarters buildings, infirmary, dining hall, store room, camp exchange, etc., and District Forester Vallad announced today that construction would also begin immediately on a bunkhouse, warehouse and oil storage plant for the regular Forest Service (PAEN 1933, 10 June).
    The work program outlined for both the main Elwha Camp and the side camp at Slab Camp in the hills southeast of Port Angeles included the construction of roads from the Elwha Ranger Station to Hayes River (on the Elwha River); from Danz Ranch at the forest boundary to Deer Park lookout, to Ennis Creek Ranger Station, and then to the Lost Mountain Road; and from the Little River Road to Ennis Creek Ranger Station. Work plans also called for the widening and straightening of the Olympic (Boulder Creek) Hot Springs Road plus the improvement of several campgrounds (PAEN 1933, 10 June).
    A month later, in mid July, the tents at the Elwha CCC Camp were gone and the headquarters for the 180-man company had taken on the look of permanence. Added to the original cluster of camp buildings were four 104 x 22 foot barracks structures, a mess hall, an administration building, a bathhouse with a “Niagara Falls” shower and ancillary workshops and storage buildings. Road projects were also proceeding with haste. By mid July, one and one-half miles of road were completed to Glines Canyon, and road crews were pushing toward Heart O’the Hills. The local press noted, “The road jobs now being carried forward by the CCC crews in the Elwha forest district will effect improvements of vital importance to [the] protection of Olympic timber from fire” (PAEN 1933, 19 July).
    The morale of the first recruitment of Elwha CCC enrollees was exceptionally high. According to journalistic accounts, every member of the fledgling camp claimed that “Elwha camp has the finest crew of any in the country” (PAEN 1933, 19 July). In the early months of operation, there were reportedly few withdrawals; the men were healthy and spirits exuberant. One reason for this initial good spirit at the Elwha Camp may be attributed to the high percentage of enrollees from Clallam County, Seattle, and Bellingham, Washington. These men were fairly familiar and comfortable with the surroundings (PAEN 1933, 19 July). Unlike many CCC camps across the country that consisted of men transported great distances to their place of assignment, the early Elwha CCC camp was comprised of men almost exclusively from western Washington.
    At the end of the first six month recruitment period, the esprit de corps continued to remain high as demonstrated by the great percentage of reenlistments and the reported accomplishments of the company. In late September 1933, the Port Angeles Evening News stated:
    What is believed to be a probable record for Civilian Conservation Corps units in Washington is reported from the C.C.C. Camp on the Elwha river, where 91 per cent of the present force has re-enrolled for the second six month’s work period starting in October. . . . This is [sic] an exceptional mark! It indicates how the C.C.C. men and boys of the Elwha feel toward their camp and the opportunity the corps has given them to earn their living and help their families financially, in addition, corps leaders feel (PAEN 1933, 21 September).
    Road building projects, which was to be the major thrust of Camp Elwha’s energies, continued unabated. By mid September 1933, a five-mile section of “truck trail” was completed up the Elwha River to Wolf Creek. A second major project involving road connections with the CCC Slab Camp/Danz Ranch, was likewise pushing forward (PAEN 1933, 21 September). Far from any roads, the CCC undertook the construction of a four-horse, shake-sided barn at Elkhorn Ranger Station during the summer of 1933 (UW 1934, 20 August).
    By early 1934, twenty-two miles of road were completed by the Elwha CCC crews. A small crew was about to begin widening the road to Olympic (Boulder Creek) Hot Springs. Fifty men, still located at the Danz Ranch side camp, worked on roads to Deer Park and to Ennis Creek. A newly established side camp at Heart O’the Hills had thirty-five men engaged in building a thoroughfare from Heart O’the Hills to Coleman’s Ranch on the Little River. The road building projects accomplished by the crews from Camp Elwha aimed at providing the Forest Service with “a continuous roadway from the Elwha River to Slab Camp and the Deer Park region by way of Little River, Mount Angeles and Ennis creek” (PAEN 1934, 6 January). New telephone connections that eventually followed this route, plus the roads themselves, were principally for fire protection purposes.
    At the outset of 1934 other projects, in addition to the construction of roads, were in progress or planned. These projects included the installation of a water and light system at the Elwha CCC Camp, and the construction of a new Ennis Creek Guard Station on the Mount Angeles Road near Heart O’the Hills. In addition, work on public campgrounds on the Elwha River at Lake Mills, Whiskey Bend and Altaire, was planned (PAEN 1934, 6 January).
    Civilian Conservation Corps camps typically were located and relocated depending on the priority of work projects in a particular geographic area. Under the direction of the Forest Service, CCC camps and side camps on the Olympic National Forest were moved on several occasions during the 1930s. One year after the establishment of CCC Camp Elwha, orders were issued to abandon the campsite and relocate to a site seven and one-half miles north of Humptulips in the southern end of the Olympic Peninsula. (CCC Camp Snider, west of Lake Crescent, and Camp Twin, on the Strait of Juan de Fuca coast, west of Port Angeles, also shifted their companies in 1934.) While the corpsmen at Elwha made preparation for their move to Humptulips

    in May, other CCC crews from the Louella CCC Camp near Sequim, took over completion of the road to Deer Park (PAEN 1934, 3 April). In recognition of the efforts of the CCC in completing the winding Deer Park Road, it became known as “The Highway of the CCC” (Carroll 1973, 103).
    The phase out of CCC Camp Elwha was only temporary. In late September 1934 official announcement came from the Forest Service regional office in Portland, Oregon, that the abandoned but intact Elwha Camp (as well as the Snider and Twin Camps) would be restored to activity in October that year. During the winter months of 1934 and 1935, the Elwha CCC Camp was among fifteen National Forest Service camps in the state of Washington (PAEN 1934, 24 September).
    For three years in the late 1930s Camp Elwha was used only at intervals as a small side camp (PAEN 1937, 16 July). Only sporadically CCC corpsmen continued to undertake projects on Forest Service land in the vicinity of the Elwha River drainage.

    In the spring of 1935 “improvements” were made to both the Elwha and Altaire public campgrounds. Betterments at these two campgrounds included work on roads, trails, camping spots, the installation of water pipes, playground equipment, horse-shoe courts for adults, and the construction of sturdy, open-sided community kitchens.

    The Port Angeles Evening News exuded enthusiasm in its description of the improvements at Altaire Campground made by the CCC: “There’s a splendid community kitchen, of rustic design, with a concrete floor and two 54-inch stoves built of rock and cement. There are long tables beside the kitchen and about the grounds are 17 tables and sufficient stoves, all constructed of stone, to take care of as many parties as the tables accommodate” (PAEN 1935, 27 March).
    The Elwha and Altaire community kitchens, in 1983, are the only two remaining CCC structures of this type in Olympic National Park. Built of natural peeled logs, shakes and masonry, the rustic materials and careful proportioning of these structures blend well with their immediate natural surroundings.

    The Elwha and Altaire community kitchens are representative examples of rustic style architecture, which became a hallmark of the CCC throughout the country (Throop 1979, 58).
    When a large contingency of CCC enrollees transferred from Camp Snider several miles west of Lake Crescent, to Camp Elwha in the spring of 1937, additional campground development was undertaken at Olympic (Boulder Creek) Hot Springs, Deer Park and Ennis Creek, at the base of Mount Angeles.

    In addition CCC crews made further improvements to the Olympic Hot Springs Road

    and the Hurricane Ridge Road. Work crews at Deer Park, an Elwha side camp, pursued work on a new ski run and completed an addition to the Deer Park Camp building to accommodate winter ski parties (PAEN 1937, 21 April; 16 July).
    During the CCC’s tenure at Camp Elwha several changes and additions were made by corpsmen to the existing Forest Service Elwha Ranger Station buildings. Eleven buildings stood at the ranger station site at the time the CCC established their camp nearby in 1933. Among the first projects undertaken by the Elwha CCC enrollees was the construction of a porch on the main ranger station building (PAEN 1933, 19 July). Two years later, in 1935, the ranger station was moved slightly, an addition was constructed and landscaping around the ranger station completed (PAEN 1935, 27 March). During the mid 1930s, corpsmen from the Elwha Camp worked on other projects at the ranger station. On Griff Creek, separating the CCC camp from the ranger station, CCC men built a water wheel to furnish electricity to the ranger station office and ranger residence (PAEN 1934, 21 March). Near the ranger station office, an incinerator was constructed for burning refuse from the CCC camp and public campgrounds in the area. The erection of the gas, oil and grease rack building in the utility area represented the largest outlay of CCC manpower and money at the Elwha Ranger Station (PAEN 1935, 27 March). It is the only building built totally by CCC labor in the ranger station complex that stands on its original site. The decorative pine tree design, used throughout the nation as the logo of both the Forest Service and the Civilian Conservation Corps, is cut out of boards on the porch and at the upper gable ends of this building (Throop 1979, 42). It symbolizes and serves as a constant visual reminder of the contribution of the CCC to the Elwha Ranger Station.
    In addition to visible structural changes completed at the Elwha Ranger Station and elsewhere, the construction and maintenance of roads, and the development of campground facilities in forests on the north Olympic Peninsula, Forest Service Camp F-19 on the Elwha River planned and executed numerous other projects between 1933 and 1938.

    Elwha corpsmen constructed and maintained trails, built bridges, erected signs and markers, conducted surveys, constructed fences and guard rails, laid and maintained telephone lines, built parking areas and parking overlooks, razed “undesirable” structures, suppressed fires and conducted field plantings (NARS:RG 95 1934, 1 June; 1937, 6 August; ca. 1938 n.d.).

    The exact geographic locations of many Camp Elwha projects are not always readily identifiable and, in fact, much of their work has been obliterated over the years. However, the overall effect of the various CCC projects undertaken by the Elwha Camp is very much a part of the overall development of recreational use in certain areas in the northern part of Olympic National Park.
    The work of the Elwha CCC Camps is not unique but, in fact, is representative of the kinds of projects pursued by several other work camps supervised by the National Forest Service on the Olympic Peninsula. Prior to the 1938 creation of Olympic National Park, other CCC main camps and side camps located on Forest Service land around the Peninsula likewise stimulated recreational activity in areas now contained in the Park.
    —————————————————————–
    In the spring of 1935 “improvements” were made to both the Elwha and Altaire public campgrounds. Betterments at these two campgrounds included work on roads, trails, camping spots, the installation of water pipes, playground equipment, horse-shoe courts for adults, and the construction of sturdy, open-sided community kitchens.

    The Port Angeles Evening News exuded enthusiasm in its description of the improvements at Altaire Campground made by the CCC: “There’s a splendid community kitchen, of rustic design, with a concrete floor and two 54-inch stoves built of rock and cement. There are long tables beside the kitchen and about the grounds are 17 tables and sufficient stoves, all constructed of stone, to take care of as many parties as the tables accommodate” (PAEN 1935, 27 March).
    The Elwha and Altaire community kitchens, in 1983, are the only two remaining CCC structures of this type in Olympic National Park. Built of natural peeled logs, shakes and masonry, the rustic materials and careful proportioning of these structures blend well with their immediate natural surroundings. The Elwha and Altaire community kitchens are representative examples of rustic style architecture, which became a hallmark of the CCC throughout the country (Throop 1979, 58).

    THIS IS MY DAD’S INSIDE STORY

    By GEORGE C. RAINS SR.

    THE WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE AND WHY OUR FAMILY WAS LIVING INSIDE OF THE OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK AT SOL DUC HOT SPRINGS ON 320 ACRES OF PRIVATE PROPERTY IN THE FALL OF 1944.

    LIVING THE AMERICAN DREAM

    In the year of 1944 I was employed at the Quillayute Naval Air Station doing plumbing maintenance work.
    While working there I became interested in the Sol Due Hot Springs area which involved 320 acres of private land.

    The Hot Springs resort property had remained idle for some period of time, and the more I thought about it, I asked myself -¬why not find out if the property was for sale and what the asking price was.

    I contacted Mrs. Mirza Martin in Seattle, Washington, then owner of the Sol Due Hot Springs to see if the property was for sale, and she informed me that it was. I had $500.00 in savings banks, and I thought I would use this money to obtain an option to purchase the Sol Due property. By putting up the $500.00 for option money, an arrangement was worked out with Mrs. Mirza Martin and her attorney to purchase the property for $70,000.00. Payments annually would be $7,500.00 including principle and interest until the contract was paid in full. Down. payment was $21,000.00.

    Money was very scarce during these times, and I had to hitchhike to Seattle to work out the deal with Mrs. Mirza Martin and her attorney.

    On one occasion I had to take the late last ferry from Seattle to Port Ludlow. It so happened no automobiles on the ferry were going to Port Angeles, so I started walking from Port Ludlow to Port Angeles. By daylight the next morning after walking all night I finally made it to Blyn, W A. A car finally came along and I got a ride to Port Angeles.

    I decided to form a corporation to handle the purchase matter of the Sol Due Hot Springs property. I hired Mr. W. F. Phillips, attorney, who was upstairs in the old Eagles Bldg. at the time, to draw up the incorporation papers. I hitchhiked to Olympia, Washington to see that the incorporation papers were properly filed. Hitchhiking from Olympia back to Port Angeles, I became stranded in Hoodsport and had to spend the night there.

    I finally located three other gentlemen and their wives who were interested in the purchase
    and operation of the Sol Due Hot Springs Resort property. I contacted my uncle and aunt
    in Seattle, Mr. and Mrs. George W. Hancock; Mr. and Mrs. O.B. Tully, and Mr. and Mrs.
    Roy Stafford. The four of us agreed to each subscribe to the purchase of 25 percent of the
    incorporation stock.

    The purchase was made and we started the resort operation in 1944.
    ———————————————————————————–
    THIS IS MY FAIRY TALE  INSIDE STORY how I found my park in 1944, as described above, how my park found me, living inside of my Olympic National Park when I was three years old.

    Arriving at Sol Duc Hot Springs in 1944, is one of my first memories, it was freezing cold and the ground was white…. I thought it was snow. Mom said it was just thick frost.

    So there I was with my family, at Sol Duc Hot Springs, in the Sol Duc Valley surrounded by my park.

    It was the beginning of my enchanted fairy tale childhood and it lasted for almost nine years.

    What an ideal way to spend my childhood, nine years, 1944-1953 living in a Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort rustic, charming, four room cabin built by the Martin brothers in 1921.

    How rustic and charming was our cabin? We had only cold running water, , a big wood range in the kitchen, with a screened wooden cooler for food, a bathroom with no bath tub (we took our baths and did our laundry in hot mineral in the basement of the store) We had another wood stove in the front room. The back porch was a woodshed with a kids swing. Electricity was provided by a waterwheel . We had no telephone and one radio with one radio station.

    How rustic was our cabin? Well, by today’s standards…pretty rustic…

    We had the wild bears that ripped off the screened wooden food cooler on our kitchen and dumped over garbage cans on a regular basis.

    we had raccoon’s, Bantam Chickens and SKUNKS living and fighting under our cabin.

    We had wild deer that took apples from our hands at our kitchen window.

    Our rustic Sol Duc cabin was surrounded by towering cottonwood, evergreens trees and an additional 87 rustic cabins built by the Martin brothers in 1921.
    —————————————————————————-

    As Dad said, Money was very scarce during these times…

    I don’t remember being poor, but I’m guessing we were poor and lived very frugally. Mom made all of our clothes, we got two pair of shoes a year, winter shoes in the fall and summer sandals and a new dress (one of my dresses was made out of silk from a World war II parachute) for EASTER. Making it do in World War two, we had skirts of raw silk too.

    In the summer, my winter shoes, with the toes cut out, because they were too small, became my CREEK SHOES.

    I didn’t own a store bought doll until I was eight years old. My two sisters and I shared one homemade doll called “Fatty”

    I don’t remember any toys? I don’t think they had been invented yet…

    We looked on the ground for and collected tax tokens, three of them equaled one penny.
    one penny would buy candy. (they were green plastic or aluminum)

    There was so much more, than being poor…  Like living a wonderful fairy tale.
    —————————————————–
    A bit of history WA State has always been TAXING
    Washington state caused a stir when their tax laws were passed and implemented on May 21, 1935. The US government and treasury department filed suit against the state of Washington claiming THE USE OF SALES TAX TOKENS AS AN ASSAULT ON US COINAGE. The governor of Washington refused to back down and the issue was tabled by the government.
    ——————————————————————————–

    Back to sharing my inside story, living inside my park.

    MY FAVORITE MEMORIES, OF PEOPLE, PLACES AND THINGS

    It was unbelievably, wonder- full, delightful, wet, exciting and wild living on 320 acres of private property. (kind of like a fairy tale)

    A PRIVATE POOL
    In 1944, after my mother removed years and tons of accumulated leaves with a wheel barrow from the little pool, we had our own private small hot mineral swimming pool that winter and every winter after…

    —————–
    THE WONDERFUL DAYS OF SUMMER
    When Sol Duc Hot Springs was opened to and for PUBLIC USE
    Every rustic cabin was full
    The two swimming pools were full of splash happy people
    It was affordable for every working family
    Some family’s had a standing reservation for the same cabin every year
    Parking areas were full and over flowing
    The community kitchen and the surrounding area accommodated hundreds
    Campers Camped at the affordable Olympic National Park, Sol Duc Camp ground
    Fishing for trout in the Olympic National Park was a huge tourist attraction.

    ————————————————————————
    BACK THEN THERE WERE STILL FISH TO FISH FOR IN OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK
    Hikers hiked to the lakes to fish, Fisherman and fisher-boys fished in the Seven Lakes Basin (actually eight) Sol duc, Long, Lunch, Morgenroth, No Name, Clear, Round, and Lake No. 8.  Other lakes are encountered along the way are not considered part of “seven lakes” include Heart Lake, Deer Lake and Mink Lake.

    And, the old folks, woman and little kids stayed at Sol Duc Resort and went swimming…
    —————————————————————
    HOW DID THOSE TROUT EVERYBODY USED TO FISH FOR GET UP INTO THEM THAR HILLS?
    Great question, I just found the answer three days ago on Jan 18,2016 …
    During the summer of 1933 Snider CCC Camp enrollees worked with THE U.S. BUREAU OF FISHERIES AND THE STATE GAME COMMISSION TO PLANT 77,000 TROUT in the higher lakes and headwaters of streams in Clallam County THE CCC ASSISTED IN TRANSPORTING THESE FISH BY PACK HORSE TO REMOTE LOCATIONS IN THE OLYMPIC
    ———————————————————————————-
    AS INHOLDERS OUR FAMILY LIVED INSIDE OF THE OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK EVEN IN 1944 INHOLDERS WERE SUBJECT TO NATIONAL PARK RULES AND LAWS

    —————————————-
    I don’t know exactly how old I was when I realized that living inside my park had drawbacks. When I noticed the look on my parents faces when they heard the rumble of the Park Ranger, two gun Merrill’s car crossing the bridge?

    It only happened, you could only hear the rumble of a vehicle crossing the bridge and echoing through the valley, when Sol Doc Hot Springs was closed for the winter.

    What did I know and when? I was just a little kid…

    —————————————–

    When I was older, I knew why the Park Ranger, two gun Merrill showed up.. and I DID NOT LIKE HIM.

    It was illegal to shoot off fireworks in every National Park, even on your own 320 acres of private land.

    If we saw him, we knew he was on our private land to inspect, to see what was going on, Two Gun Merrill was there to force and/or enforce National Park laws and rules, including writing tickets for violations.

    Fun and games on the Fourth of July, you bet. There was only one park ranger. In the summer time there were lots of kids, even kids with cars. Kids like to shoot off fire crackers, this is the game of tag that we played with Two Gun Merrill. It was about a mile from behind the big pool to the community kitchen . So, we kids, would shoot off a bunch of fireworks behind the big pool… Two Gun Merrill would come running.. Then we kids would jump in the car and go down to the community kitchen and shoot off more fireworks. Back and forth, laughing our heads off.

    How old was I? just a kid… OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER.
    ————————————————————————————

    When I was older, I kind of sort of figured out why the Park Ranger, two gun Merrill showed up in the winter time . It was illegal to shoot off guns/firearms in every National Park, even on your own 320 acres of private land.

    As Dad said, Money was very scarce during these times…
    Feeding a family of six was expensive.
    I knew what the sound of an echoing firecracker/gunshot would do.
    I never saw the illegal shooting or dressing of a deer, But I’m sure our family, by definition ate camp meat: illegal venison.
    ———————————————————

    BACK WHEN THERE WERE STILL FISH TO FISH FOR IN OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK

    BEFORE THE TROUT WERE ELIMINATE BY THE NATIONAL PARK SERVICE, TO PROTECT THE NOT SO ENDANGERED SPECIES LIKE LONG TOED SALAMANDERS AND FROGS

    Dad went fishing for trout up in the Seven Lake Basin.

    We had a walk in freezer up at the Sol Duc Store.
    As a kid, I ate a lot of free trout when I lived in my, Olympic National Park
    ——————————————————————————
    HOW DID OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK RANGER, “TWO GUN MERRILL”

    GET HIS NAME? URBAN LEGEND HAS IT..
    THAT IN AN ATTEMPTED QUICK DRAW PRACTICE, HE ACCIDENTLY SHOT OFF ONE OF HIS TOES
    An urban legend is a secondhand story, alleged to be true
    and just plausible enough to be believed

    The Promised Land Olympic National Park

    Sept. 30, 1937 President Roosevelt came to Port Angeles WA
    A banner hung across the courthouse saying: “Mr. President, we children need your help. Give us our Olympic National Park.”
    President Roosevelt said “Mr. Mayor and my friends of Port Angeles,” “That sign is the appealingest appeal I have ever seen in my travels. I am inclined to think it counts more to have the children want that park than all the rest of us put together.
    “So, you boys and girls, I think you can count on my help in getting that national park, not only because we need it for us old people and you young people, but for a whole lot of young people who are going to come along in the next hundred years of America.”

    The designation of these World Heritage Sites was authorized by the World Heritage Convention, a treaty signed by President Richard Nixon and ratified in 1973. The World Heritage Program is carried out by UNESCO, to which the United States doesn’t even belong. President Ronald Reagan pulled us out of UNESCO because it was totally corrupt.
    The UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Program was created in 1970. The United States joined in 1974 when our State Department signed a memorandum of understanding (not a treaty) to put us in the Biosphere Program and pledge that the United States will adhere to the Biosphere conditions and limitations laid down by UNESCO. Paragraph 44 of the World Heritage Operational Guidelines states that “natural” Heritage Sites (as contrasted to “cultural”) can be interchanged with “core reserves” of the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Program. These core protected areas are planned to be surrounded by highly regulated buffer zones, all for the sake of “biodiversity.”

    ——————————
    So, the Park Service is choking off the local economy by refusing to maintain certain highways and by buying up any property available. Of course, there will be plenty available as more and more owners are denied the use of their own private property which causes businesses to shut down and the economy to slow.

    1. Conservation Concern -conservation of ecosystems and the genetic resources
    they contain
    2.Logistic Concern-international net work for research, monitoring, and education
    3.Development Concerns of sustainable human uses of ecosystems

    In 1988,the National Committee declined approval of U.S. participation in
    nominating a multi-site biosphere reserve in northern Minnesota and adjacent Canada

    BASED ON CONCERNS OF LOCAL CITIZENS GROUPS OVER THE IMPLICATIONS OF BIOSPHERE RESERVE DESIGNATION ON TRADITIONAL RESOURCE USES.

    Although the concerns lacked a factual basis, the Committee’s unprecedented rejection of a nomination underscored the need to enlist stakeholder participation in the biosphere reserve planning process

    Designation of sites administered by state and local governments, nongovernmental organizations, and private institutions has increased steadily during the past decade (see Attachment IV). In 1976, all BR sites were Federal. Non-Federal participation has been the principal factor in growth of the network since 1983
