  • It’s Who They Are That Concerns Me

    THEY ARE THE GOVERNMENT’S BUREAUCRATS THAT INSTILLED FEAR IN THEIR OWN CITIZENS.

    THE PROGRESSIVE BUREAUCRATS, in WA DC, in Clallam County, WA State, Dept. of Ecology (DOE) and their globalist entourage etal. Paid, environmentalists’ Facilitators, including the United Nations Agenda.

    When the fearful citizens came forward  on Jan 26, 2011

    I said something.

    “When American citizen fear what their own government  is going to do to them, that is unacceptable to me.”

    At this point in time, Oct 17, 2017 why bother with the FEAR the Clallam County SMP Update caused, and became a matter of public record on Jan 26, 2011?

    WHY BOTHER WITH THAT CLALLAM COUNTY SMP UPDATE.

    BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN AN INTEREST PARTY SINCE JAN 26, 2011

    —– Original Message —–

    From: zSMP

    Sent: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2017 8:57 AM

    SUBJECT: PROPOSED CLALLAM COUNTY SHORELINE MASTER PROGRAM (SMP)

    INTERESTED PARTIES,

    You are receiving this notice because you are on the County’s Shoreline Master Program (SMP) Update email notification list. The County Planning Commission recommended to the Clallam County Board of Commissioners a Draft SMP (September 2017) to update and replace: (1) the existing 1976 SMP (last amended 1992); and (2) procedures for administration (e.g., permit process) of the SMP in Chapter 35.01, Shoreline Management, of the Clallam County Code (CCC).

    PUBLIC HEARING:  A public hearing on the recommended SMP before the Clallam County Board of Commissioners is scheduled for December 12, 2017 at 10:30 a.m., or as soon thereafter as possible in the Commissioners’ Meeting Room of the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 East 4th Street, Room 160, Port Angeles, Washington. All persons wishing to comment are welcome to either submit their written comments before the hearing is commenced or present written and/or oral comments in person during the public hearing. Written comments should be sent to the Clallam County Board of Commissioners, 223 East 4th Street, Suite 4, Port Angeles, WA 98362-3015, or emailed to:  SMP@co.clallam.wa.us

    REGIONAL PUBLIC FORUMS:  Prior to the public hearing, the County Dept. of Community Development will host 4 public forums to provide information on the SMP:

    Thursday, November 2, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.

    Sekiu Community Center, 42 Rice St., Sekiu WA

    Monday, November 6, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.

    Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.

    John Wayne Marina, 2577 W. Sequim Bay Rd., Sequim WA

    SUMMARY:  The SMP addresses compliance with the state Shoreline Management Act (SMA), RCW 90.58, and state SMP Update Guidelines (WAC 173-26).  It includes goals and policies, regulations for new development and uses, and administrative procedures (e.g., permit process).

    AREAS SUBJECT TO SMP:  The SMP applies to all marine waters, reaches of rivers and streams where the mean annual flow is more than 20 cubic feet per second, and lakes and reservoirs 20 acres or greater in size that are under the jurisdiction of Clallam County and to lands adjacent to these water bodies (together with lands underlying them) extending landward 200 feet in all directions from the ordinary high water mark; floodways and contiguous floodplain areas landward 200 feet from such floodways; and associated wetlands and river deltas.  To consolidate regulations, the proposed SMP also includes the full extent of the mapped 100-year floodplain and land necessary for buffers to protect critical areas as defined in RCW 36.70A that are overlapping or otherwise coincident with the shoreline jurisdiction as allowed pursuant to RCW 90.58.030(2)(d)(i,ii). The City of Forks is also considering the SMP for rivers inside the city limits. Maps showing the approximate lateral extent of the shoreline jurisdiction and proposed shoreline environmental designations are found in Exhibit A-Shoreline Maps of the proposed SMP.

    SMP DOCUMENTS AND INFORMATION: The Draft SMP—Planning Commission Recommendation (September 2017) is available for review at the Department of Community Development in the Clallam County Courthouse and on the County‘s SMP Update web page at:  http://www.clallam.net/LandUse/SMP.html

    The existing 1976 SMP (last amended 1992) and related administrative procedures in Chapter 35.01 CCC, Shoreline Management; supporting SMP Update documents including, but not limited to Shoreline Inventory and Characterization Reports, Shoreline Restoration Plan, Cumulative Impacts Analysis and No Net Loss Report, and Consistency Review Report; and other information are also available at the Department and on the County SMP Update website.  For questions, contact the Department at 360-417-2420.

    —————————————————————-

    July 14, 2012 FIRST SMP PUBLIC COMMENT continued…

    (1) DISCUSSED AND QUESTIONED? The undecipherable table with the percentages, the 15% of whatever? It made no sense to me either? Jay Pedersen could help with  his knowledge of what he thought it actually was/represented? It would be very helpful to members of the committee.

    The written text related to the undecipherable table below

    1. Minor new development Grading shall not exceed 500 cubic yards; and ii. Land disturbing activities shall not exceed 20,000 square feet, except that on parcels less than five (5) acres, land disturbing activities must not exceed fifteen (15) percent of the gross parcel size; and iii. The total cumulative footprint of all structures on a parcel must be less than 4,000 square feet; and iv. The total cumulative impervious surface area on the parcel must be less than ten (10) . All land disturbing activities must be located on slopes less than fifteen (15) percent; and vi. All land disturbing activities must comply with any critical area buffer and other protection standards established for parcels created by land division.

     

    (2) DISCUSSED AND QUESTIONED? NOT ADDRESSED

    The limited number of trained specialists,  Jay’s comment was in reference to the county SMP  requiring specialists, to perform the mitigation tests. If a property owner could even find one to do the testing? The time delay and cost would be prohibitive.

     

    (3) PRESENTED NOT DISCUSSED

    SMP Excessive restrictions on all forms of developments. I am extremely concerned about the additional restrictive requirements written into the SMP update for major development. They are counter- productive to the economic recovery of Clallam County, they restrict the ability of business and citizens to create employment opportunities in both Clallam County and Port Angeles. Why are the Dept. of Community Development and the planning biting off their own feet? Why are they creating these obsessive restrictions on all developments?

    The way Steve was talking it, with all the added bells and whistles, it was to make any form of mitigation for anything totally infeasible, creating a like it or lump it, situation for all development by business or private shoreline property owners.

     

    (4) PRESENTED- DISCUSSED but NOT ADDRESSED

    The cumulative effect of setbacks SHORELINE, WETLAND and HABITAT   Ed Bowen did a good job when he pointed out an example of the enormous  loss of private property use with the setbacks on Lake Pleasant, in conjunction with the yet undetermined, Clallam County DOE designated WETLANDS.

     

    (5) PRESENTED NOT ADDRESSED

    More additional HABITAT setbacks

    It was impressive how smoothly Margaret and Steve just added on the additional habitat setbacks, but did not mention endangered species.

    1. Rare, endangered, threatened and sensitive species means plant and animal species identified and listed by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, Washington Natural Heritage Program, Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife, or the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, as being severely limited or threatened with extinction within their native ranges.
    2. Threatened species means a species that is likely to become an endangered species within the foreseeable future, as classified by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Department of Natural Resources, Washington Natural Heritage Program, or the federal Endangered Species Act.

     

    (6) ED BOWEN COMMENT NOT ADDRESSED

    1. Recording means the filing of a document(s) for recordation with the County auditor.

     

    (7) NO DISCUSSION OR RESOLUTION (not required by law)

    1. Restoration means the reestablishment or upgrading of impaired ecological shoreline processes or functions. This may be accomplished through measures including, but not limited to, revegetation, removal of fill, removal of intrusive shoreline structures and removal or treatment of toxic materials. Restoration does not imply a requirement for returning the shoreline area to aboriginal or pre-European settlement conditions.

     

    (8) DOE DESIGNATED WETLANDS NOT IDENTIFIED OR INCORPORATED

    Wetlands have no boundaries, adjoining wetlands could restrict the use of your property.

    1. Wetlands means areas that are inundated or saturated by surface water or ground water at a frequency and duration sufficient to support, and that under normal circumstances support, a prevalence of vegetation typically adapted for life in saturated soil conditions. Wetlands generally include swamps, marshes, bogs and similar areas. Wetlands do not include those artificial wetlands intentionally created for non-wetland sites, including, but not limited to, irrigation and drainage ditches, grass lined swales, canals, detention facilities, wastewater treatment facilities, farm ponds, and landscape amenities or those wetlands created after July 1, 1990, that were unintentionally created as a result of the construction of a road, street, or highway. Wetlands created as mitigation and wetland modified for approved land use activities shall be considered as regulated wetlands.

     

    PROHIBITED EXCEPTION DISCUSSED AND RESOLVED BY RCW

    Provisions for protection SHALL be included in SMP up date.

    1. Revetment means a sloped wall constructed of rip-rap or other suitable material placed on stream banks or other shorelines to retard bank erosion and minimize lateral stream movement.
    2. Rip-rap means dense, hard, angular rock free from cracks or other defects conductive to weathering often used for bulkheads, revetments or similar slope/bank stabilization purposes.

     

    (9) DISCUSSED UNDEFINED NO RESOLUTION [insert final date]

    3.1.1 Shoreline Environment Designations

    1. A shoreline environment designation has been assigned to each segment of the shoreline in accordance with this section. The designations are based on the following general factors:
    2. The ecological functions and processes that characterize the shoreline, together with the degree of human alteration as determined by the [insert final date] Shoreline Inventory and Characterization Report and subsequent technical analyses; and

     

    (10) NOT PRESENTED OR  DISCUSSED

     EXPENSE OF SPECIALISTS FOR APPROVAL

    1. c. Hazard Tree Removal: Removal of a hazard tree may be allowed in the buffer when trimming is not sufficient to address the hazard. Where the hazard is not immediately apparent to the Administrator, the hazard tree determination SHALL be made after Administrator review of a report prepared by a qualified arborist or forester.

    (11) NOT PRESENTED OR  DISCUSSED

    EXPENSE OF SPECIALISTS FOR APPROVAL

    1. Invasive Species Management: Removing invasive, non-native shoreline vegetation listed on the Clallam County Noxious Weed List may be allowed in the buffer when otherwise consistent with this Program. The disturbed areas must be promptly revegetated using species native to western Washington. The Administrator SHALL require a vegetation management plan prepared by a qualified ecologist, forester, arborist, or landscape architect prior to approving the invasive species removal. The vegetation management plan SHALL  identify and describe the location and extent of vegetation management. For properties within designated landslide or erosion hazard areas, the Administrator may require review of the vegetation management plan by an engineering geologist or geotechnical engineer to ensure that the vegetation management will not cause or exacerbate hazards associated with soil or slope instability. The location and size of the invasive species management area SHALL be clearly defined on the site plan

     

    (12) NOT DISCUSSED – ADDRESSED OR RESOLVED

    Taking of Value of view property by limited 20% KEYHOLE view corridor. If 50% of the value of your shoreline property is for the view? Losing 80% the view value will affect the true and real value of your property

    4.2.4 Regulations – Shoreline Buffers

    . 3. Buffer Condition: Shoreline buffers shall be maintained in a predominantly well vegetated and undisturbed condition to ensure that the buffer provides desired buffer functions including shade, habitat, organic inputs, large woody debris, slope stability, water storage, biofiltration, contaminant removal, and fine sediment control. Up to eighty percent (80%) of the buffer area shall be vegetated with native trees and shrubs. The remaining twenty percent (20%), or at least fifteen (15) linear feet of the water frontage, whichever is greater, may be retained as lawn for active use.

    1. Allowed Uses and Buffer Modifications: The Administrator may allow limited clearing, thinning, and/or pruning to accommodate specific shoreline buffer uses and modifications identified in this section. Such allowances shall not require compensatory mitigation provided that the amount and extent of the clearing, limbing, and/or pruning are the minimum necessary to accommodate the allowed use and all other requirements of the Program are met:

    (13) view corridor NOT DISCUSSED OR ADDRESSED limited and selective tree removal, pruning, and/or limbing in the buffer

    1. View Corridors: The Administrator may allow limited and selective tree removal, pruning, and/or limbing in the buffer to create a view of the shoreline when otherwise consistent with this Program. The removal, pruning, and/or limbing shall not require any ground-disturbing equipment and shall not materially alter soils or topography.

    (15) NOT DISCUSSED OR ADDRESSED

    EXPENSE OF SPECIALISTS FOR APPROVAL

    Administrator shall require a view clearance plan

    The Administrator shall require a view clearance plan prepared by a qualified ecologist, forester, arborist, or landscape architect prior to approving the view corridor. The view clearance plan shall identify and describe the location and extent of the proposed tree removal, pruning, and limbing and shall demonstrate compliance with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) A300 Standards for Tree Care Operations (Tree, Shrub, and Other Woody Plant Management – Standard Practices). For properties within designated landslide or erosion hazard areas, the Administrator may require review of the view clearance plan by an engineering geologist or geotechnical engineer to ensure that the proposed removal, pruning, and/or limbing will not cause or exacerbate hazards associated with soil or slope instability. The location and size of the view corridor shall be clearly defined on the site plan.

    1. Private Pathways: Private pathways which provide pedestrian access to the shoreline may be allowed within the buffer provided they are constructed of pervious material, are less than or equal to six (6) feet wide, and follow a route that minimizes erosion and gullying

     

    (16)  NOT DISCUSSED OR ADDRESSED

    Taking of Private property for Public access

    The removal of any reference to  the taking of private property for Public access, Clallam County has the highest public access to public land in WA State. At the Private DOE meeting on June 6, 2012 Gordon White agreed that we have sufficient cause 51% to remove any taking of private property for public access.

     

    (17) NOT DISCUSSED, MENTIONED AND DISMISSED

    EPA. Precautionary setback are not legal

     As questioned by Rob McKenna, why are the DOE SMP setbacks more restrictive the EPA. Precautionary setback are not legal.

     

     (18) LEGALITY OF 80% TAKING  NOT DISCUSSED NOT ADDRESSED

    ONE HUNDRED PERCENT (100%) NON-CONFORMING PROPERTY

    1. At least eighty percent (80%) of the buffer area between the structures and the shoreline and/or critical area is maintained in a naturally vegetated condition.

    What provisions have the DOE made to  stay within the LAW?

    “It is now undisputed that the county had no authority to deprive residents of the use of their own private property.” CAO’S “65 PERCENT” SEIZURE OF PROPERTY PLF Lauds Supreme Court for “Driving a Stake Through One of the Most Extreme Assaults on Property Rights in the U.S.”

    SEATTLE, WA; March 4, 2009: The Washington Supreme Court

    the CAO limited rural landowners with five acres or more to clearing only 35 percent of their property, forcing them to maintain the remaining 65 percent as native vegetation indefinitely. Rural landowners owning less than five acres were allowed to clear only 50 percent of their parcels. Affected landowners had to continue paying taxes on the portion of the property rendered useless by the CAO.

    (19) NOT DISCUSSED OR ADDRESSED

     The provisions of WAC173-26-191 anything that may be  illegal and unconstitutional at a State level, may also be  illegal and unconstitutional at a county level AND shall not be included in Clallam County SMP update.

    ——————————————————————————-

    WAC 173-26-191

    Agency filings affecting this section

    Master program contents.

    2 The results of shoreline planning are summarized in shoreline master program policies that establish broad

    shoreline management directives. The policies are the basis for regulations that govern use and development along the shoreline. Some master program policies may not be fully attainable by regulatory means due to the constitutional and other legal limitations on the regulation of private property. The policies may be pursued by other means as provided in RCW 90.58.240. Some

    development requires a shoreline permit prior to construction. A local government evaluates a permit application with respect to the shoreline master program policies and regulations and approves a permit only after determining that the development conforms to them. Except

    where specifically provided in statute, the regulations apply to all uses and development within shoreline jurisdiction, whether or not a shoreline permit is required, and are implemented through an administrative process established by local government pursuant to RCW 90.58.050 and 90.58.140 and enforcement pursuant to RCW

    90.58.210 through 90.58.230.

    —————————————————————————–

    Some master program policies may not be fully attainable by regulatory means due to the constitutional and other legal limitations on the regulation of private property.

    So?  The illegal and unconstitutional policies on private property,

    may be pursued by other means and implemented through an administrative process established by local government

    So?  The illegal and unconstitutional policies on private property, may be pursued by other means and implemented through an administrative process established by local government?

    “I THINK ALL OF OUR POLITICIANS NEED TO TAKE A HARD LOOK AT WHAT THEIR GOALS ARE AND WHERE WE’RE HEADED. BECAUSE I THINK A LOT OF THE ANGER IS AGAINST THE POLITICAL SYSTEM, AND THAT CAN BE DANGEROUS IF IT CONTINUES TO GET WORSE.”

    It’s a familiar stereotype: COUNTRY-MUSIC FANS ARE REPUBLICANS; POP AND HIP-HOP LISTENERS ARE DEMOCRATS. Well, according to a new analysis by the Echo Nest, those stereotypes happen to strike pretty close to the truth.

    The Echo Nest, whose platform powers the customized webcasts at Spotify and iHeartRadio, among other sites, uses sophisticated analytical tools to categorize songs for the sake of generating compelling playlists. It also has been developing (anonymized) “taste profiles” of listeners based on their use of those sites and the feedback they provide.

    The company recently looked at those profiles to see if there was any correlation between political affiliation and listening habits. Its chief technologist, Brian Whitman, put it this way in a blog post Thursday morning:

    “CAN WE TELL IF SOMEONE IS A REPUBLICAN JUST FROM HIS OR HER ITUNES COLLECTION?

    JASON ALDEAN is an American country music singer songwriter.

     Blacklisted After What He Just Said About Trump

    Jason Aldean scored a hit song a few years back with “FLY OVER STATES,” a song about the men and women in the heartland of America who don’t often feel their voices are heard in the media and politics.

    “The common man is highly underestimated” Jason tells “Rolling Stone.”

    Jason says that Donald Trump spoke directly to those working class Americans, which is a big reason he is now the President-elect.

    Nov 5, 2010 – Former President George W. Bush said it was a “huge mistake” for him to have been photographed during a flyover. . On the way back to DC, AF-1 flies over New Orleans, Gulfport, Biloxi and Mobile, ….

    ———————————————————————————-

    This latest presidential election made that divide even more pronounced, and Jason has seen it play out everywhere.

    “The common man is highly underestimated” Jason tells “Rolling Stone.” “I heard a lady say it on the news the other day. She’s talking about Trump speaking to people who made under 60 grand a year. And she’s in New York, and she says, ‘To be honest, I don’t even know anybody that makes under 60 grand a year.’ No offense, but that’s where I came from. And that’s the issue. The common person out there, the everyday guy who is going to work and wanting a normal life for his family, he doesn’t work on Wall Street … that guy still has a voice. And there is a lot of them out there who feel like they’re forgotten about.”

    Jason says that Donald Trump spoke directly to those working class Americans, which is a big reason he is now the President-elect.

    Jason adds, “Trump, like the guy or not, he was out there busting his butt on the campaign trail, talking to these people and putting it in laymen’s terms for them, listening to what they had to say. He wasn’t just focusing on the big companies and the big cities. He was digging in to the heartland of America. You saw those people come out in a big way to support that because they want to feel like they have a voice, too. He shocked the world with that.”

    Jason goes on to say that he didn’t vote this year because he recently moved to a new county and didn’t get registered in time. That’s not to say he didn’t want to cast his ballot.

    “Trust me, I wanted to,” Jason says. “This is the first year I haven’t [voted] since I can remember.”

    When asked whether he would have voted for Trump, Jason declined to answer.

    “That’s one subject I do stay away from,” he explains. “Politics is a no-win.”

    ERIC CHURCH is an American country music singer and songwriter.

    Eric Church Shares His Take on Politics and a ‘Broken’ System

    Following the release of his powerful new song, “Kill a Word,” Eric Church is opening up about his thoughts on the presidential election and current political system.

    CHURCH’S RECENT SINGLE IS ALL ABOUT THE POWER OF WORDS, BOTH TO HEAL AND TO HARM.

    And according to an interview with Rolling Stone, Church says that the song is especially relevant given the current social and political climate of the United States.

    “I’ve never had a song that felt more meaningful and relevant than this one,” says Church. “It’s something that people need to hear.”

    The song is especially “relevant,” Church proclaims, because America is in the middle of one of the most chaotic seasons we’ve seen in recent years, both when it comes to politics and even how we interact with one another on a daily basis.

    “It’s a pretty charged-up time right now. At the end of the day, we all have to get along. I don’t care what your belief is – we can’t kill each other. It can’t happen that way,” Church says, referring to recent violence in the States. “There’s a lot of racial tension in this country, a lot of authoritative tension with police, and I think all that stuff makes for a tumultuous time.”

    Going on to speak about the current presidential election, Church admits that what he sees when traveling the country as a famous country singer is what many of us see in our own communities and neighborhoods.

    “We have a broken political system. It’s been broken a while. And there is a lot of anger. There is a lot of discontent. It’s very important that we don’t dismiss it,” says Church, adding that it might be time for leaders to readjust their priorities. “I think all of our politicians need to take a hard look at what their goals are and where we’re headed. Because I think a lot of the anger is against the political system, and that can be dangerous if it continues to get worse.”

    And when it comes to the candidates? Church says he hasn’t made up his mind about who to vote for in November, mostly because he doesn’t trust politicians and their ability to affect real change. But he does have hope when it comes to local government.

    “People feeling certain ways and feeling that anger and angst is the bigger issue. I don’t believe it’s something a president can fix,” he says. “To me, the most powerful people in this country, politically, are mayors. If you took all the mayors of the 25 biggest cities and you got them together, you could do more on that level than you ever could through the bureaucracy in Washington. For me, it is more community-based. We have to fix it at a lower floor, before a president comes in.”

    This isn’t the first time Church has spoken out about politics and the 2016 presidential race, likening it more to a WWE match than a process to select a new leader of the United States. But at the end of the day, it looks like Church is staying focused on his music more than politics. The award-winning country star just announced his 2017 Holdin’ My Own Tour that will feature three-hour solo shows sure to delight fans.

    SAM HUNT is an American country music singer and songwriter.

    Before he started singing, Sam’s initial goal was to be a professional football player.

    HE PLAYED FOOTBALL ALL THE WAY UP TO THE COLLEGE LEVEL, AND EVEN PLAYED BRIEFLY FOR THE NFL.

    Sam’s religion is unknown. Some do consider him non-religious since there is no information on his faith and he doesn’t seem to sing about it. Sam currently enjoys singing and writing country music.  His still really loves football and enjoys watching it.

    Sam has never shown any interest in politics. In one interview he did say that he would invite Obama, as one of his three hypothetical dinner guests. It seems like he might support the Democratic party, or he might just really like Obama.

    Introduction

    The Department of Ecology is proposing amendments to Chapter 173-03 WAC Public Records. The purpose of this chapter is to implement the requirements of the Public Records Act including the process the agency uses for disclosing records.

    This update will modernize the rule to reflect current law, technology, and processes. On 7/20/17 we filed an emergency rule amendment to implement changes passed by the legislature during the 2017 legislative session.  This emergency rule will be in place until 11/17/2017.  The content of this emergency rule will be included in the permanent rulemaking we are conducting.

    Why it matters

    The rule has not been updated since 1998 and needs to reflect current law, technology, and processes. The rule also contains outdated information about Ecology programs and staff, which will be made current and will reflect changes made in the 2017 legislative session.

    Scope of rule development

    Ecology is proposing to amend Chapter 173-03 WAC. This update will modernize the rule to reflect current law, technology, and processes.

    Process of development

    Please refer to the Timeline and Public Involvement information to stay informed about the rulemaking.

    How do I get access to the public records of the department of ecology?

    (1) All public records of the department are available for public inspection and copying under these rules subject to subsections (2), (3), (4), and (5) of this section.

    (2) Availability of public records is subject to the exemptions and prohibitions against disclosure contained in RCW 42.17.310, 42.17.130, 42.17.255, 42.17.260, and 90.52.020. In addition, individuals may request, and ecology may grant, confidentiality of documents from disclosure under RCW 43.21A.160 and 70.105.170.

    (3) When a public record includes information which, if disclosed, would lead to an unreasonable invasion of personal privacy, and the department becomes aware of this fact, the department shall delete such information before making the record available.

    (4) Public records requested may not be readily available for immediate inspection. If the requested records are not readily available, the department shall notify the requester when and where those records will be available.

    (5) Public records of the department are kept by the department or state archives until scheduled for destruction by the records retention schedule in accordance with chapter 40.14 RCW. Public records subject to a request for disclosure when scheduled for destruction shall be retained by the department and may not be erased or destroyed until the request is resolved.

    What records are retained and how are they indexed?

    The records retention schedule established by the division of state archives of the office of the secretary of state serves as an index for the identification and location of the following records:

    (1) All records issued before July 1, 1990, for which the department has maintained an index;

    (2) Final orders entered after June 30, 1990, that are issued in adjudicative proceedings as defined in RCW 34.05.010(1) and that contain an analysis or decision of substantial importance to the department in carrying out its duties;

    (3) Declaratory orders entered after June 30, 1990, that are issued pursuant to RCW 34.05.240 and that contain an analysis or decision of substantial importance to the department in carrying out its duties; and

    (4) Interpretive statements as defined in RCW 34.05.010(8) that were entered after June 30, 1990.

    The records retention schedule indexes records according to the originating program or section, and then the record series title. Each title is further identified by a statement of function or purpose, and the retention period. The records retention schedule is available to the public for inspection and copying. With the assistance of the public records officer or designee, any person can obtain access to public records of the department using the records retention schedule.

    A separate index of policy statements as defined in RCW 34.05.010(4) entered after June 30, 1990, shall be maintained by the department’s policy manual coordinator or designees.

    (3) If you make your request by mail, your request must contain the following information:

    (a) The name and address of the person making the request and the organization the person represents;

    (b) The time of day and calendar date on which the person wishes to inspect the public records;

    (c) A description of the public records requested;

    (4) The department must receive all requests at least five business days before the requested date of inspection to allow the public records officer or designee to make certain the requested records are available and not exempt and, if necessary, to contact the person requesting inspection. The department will process all requests in a timely manner. However, large requests or requests for public records maintained offsite may require more than five business days to prepare. The department will respond to your request within five business days of receiving it, by either:

    (a) Providing the record;

    (b) Acknowledging that the department has received the request and providing a reasonable estimate of the time the department will require to respond to the request; or

    (c) Denying the public record request.

    Additional time required to respond to a request may be based upon the need to clarify the intent of the request, to locate and assemble the information requested, to notify third persons or agencies affected by the request, or to determine whether any of the information requested is exempt and that a denial should be made as to all or part of the request. In acknowledging receipt of a public record request that is unclear, the department may ask the requestor to clarify what information the requestor is seeking. If the requestor fails to clarify the request, the agency need not respond to it.

    (5) The department may in its discretion fill requests made by telephone or facsimile copy (fax).

    WAC 173-03-070

    How much will it cost me to view a public record?

    The department does not charge a fee for the inspection of public records. The department will charge an amount necessary to reimburse its costs for providing copies of records. This amount shall be reviewed from time to time by the department, and shall represent the costs of providing copies of public records and for use of the department’s copy equipment, including staff time spent copying records, preparing records for copying, and restoring files. This charge is the amount necessary to reimburse the department for its actual costs for copying and is payable at the time copies are furnished. The charge for special copy work of nonstandard public records shall reflect the total cost, including the staff time necessary to safeguard the integrity of these records.

    What do I do if I object to the department’s denial to review a public record?

    (1) Any person who objects to the refusal of a request for a public record may petition for prompt review of that decision by submitting a written request for review.

    (2) Immediately after receiving a written request for review of a decision denying a public record, the public records officer or other staff member denying the request shall refer it to the director or the director’s delegate. The director or delegate shall immediately consider the matter and either affirm or reverse the refusal. The final decision shall be sent to the objecting person within two business days following receipt of the petition for review.

    The bottom line…..

    THE WA STATE  DEPT OF ECOLOGY (DOE) CHANGES TO PUBLIC RECORDS IS  A MONEY DEAL.

    JAN 20, 2013 “ECOLOGY SUCKS” WAS MY  PUBLISHED OPINION AND ON SEPT 22, 2017  I’M STICKING WITH IT!


  • Public Notice on Recall of Obamacare?

    HOW PUBLIC NOTICE RECALLS AND CLASS ACTIONS WORK OR NOT?

    INITIATED PUBLIC NOTICE RECALLS REQUIRE THE “MANUFACTURER’S” ACTION TO ANNOUNCE AND REMEDY THE DEFECTS.

    THE “MANUFACTURERS” ARE REQUIRED TO FIX THE PROBLEM BY REPAIRING IT OR REPLACING IT.

    MOST DECISIONS TO CONDUCT A RECALL AND REMEDY A DEFECT ARE MADE VOLUNTARILY BY “MANUFACTURERS” PRIOR TO ANY INVOLVEMENT BY AMERICAN VOTERS

    OR IN RARE CASES???  AMERICAN VOTERS, TOOK A PUBLIC CLASS ACTION ON NOV 8, 2016 , IT WAS (in part) CAUSED BY OBAMACARE’S UNAFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE ACT  “MANUFACTURERS”

    DONALD J. TRUMP GAVE PUBLIC NOTICE ON RECALL, REPEAL AND REPLACE, OF OBAMACARE

    IN FACT:  BY Mar 24, 2017 Donald J. Trump had promised to repeal Obamacare at least 68 times “We are going to REPEAL and REPLACE Obamacare which is a disaster. …

    DONALD J. TRUMP WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE U.S.A.

    AND MANY OF OBAMACARE’S “MANUFACTURERS”  WERE VOTED OUT OF OFFICE

    July 18, 2017 … Trump said, We’ll let Obamacare fail and then the Democrats are going to come to us,” AND HE SAID THAT “I’M NOT GOING TO OWN IT.” …

    ———————————————————————-

    INDEED, OBAMA’S DEMOCRATS “MANUFACTURED OBAMACARE” THEY PASSED IT INTO LAW AND THEY OWN IT!

    ANALOGY….

    Reporting your problem is the important first step.

    Your complaint will be added to a public database after personally identifying information is removed.

    If CONGRESS receives similar reports from a number of people about Obamacare’s Unaffordable Care Act, this could indicate that a defect may exist that would warrant the opening of an investigation.

    —————————————————————————————–

    Report a problem with your Obamacare Unaffordable Care  coverage. CONGRESS will review every problem as they work to keep Obamacare’s Affordable Care  and prescription drugs accessible and affordable.

    CONGRESS reviews filed complaints from Healthcare  recipients’ and other information related to Obamacare’s alleged affordability defects to decide whether to open an investigation

    CONGRESS conducts an analysis of any petitions calling for Affordable Care defect investigations. If the petition is denied, the reasons for the denial should be published in the Federal Register.

    CONGRESS opens an investigation of alleged Obamacare Affordable Care defects.

    THE INVESTIGATION  is closed when they notify the “MANUFACTURER” OF RECALL RECOMMENDATIONS.

    INITIATED  RECALLS REQUIRE THE MANUFACTURER’S ACTION TO ANNOUNCE AND REMEDY THE DEFECTS.

    Recalls

    Initiated safety recalls require a manufacturer’s action to announce and remedy the defects.

    A recall is issued when a manufacturer or NHTSA determines that a vehicle, equipment, car seat, or tire creates an unreasonable safety risk or fails to meet minimum safety standards. Most decisions to conduct a recall and remedy a safety defect are made voluntarily by manufacturers prior to any involvement by NHTSA.

    Manufacturers are required to fix the problem by repairing it, replacing it, offering a refund, or in rare cases repurchasing the vehicle.

    Using our VIN lookup tool, you can access recall information provided by the manufacturer conducting the recall which may be not posted yet on NHTSA’s site.

    (SAFE) National Flood Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2017

    Jun 13, 2017 – Legislation extends National Flood Insurance Program for 6 yrs., institutes … Congress must reauthorize the NFIP, which expires on Sept.

    The Sustainable, Affordable, Fair, and Efficient (SAFE) National Flood Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2017 tackles systemic problems with flood insurance,

    puts it back on solid fiscal ground,

    and reframes our nation’s entire disaster paradigm to one that focuses more on prevention and mitigation to spare the high cost of rebuilding after flood disasters. 

    Congress must reauthorize the NFIP, which expires on Sept. 30, 2017.

    The bill is also cosponsored by Sens. John Kennedy (R-La.), Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.),

     ELIZABETH WARREN (D-MASS.) Pocahontas?

    and Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), all members of the Senate Banking and Appropriations Committees that are ULTIMATELY CHARGED WITH WRITING THE NFIP REAUTHORIZATION LEGISLATION, and Bill Nelson (D-Fla.).   

    SAFE NFIP addresses critical problems with the program, administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), following Superstorm Sandy AND OTHER DISASTERS: unsustainability, low participation rates, inaccurate flood maps, an indifference to the benefits of flood control infrastructure, agency mismanagement, unsustainable debt service costs and contractor profiteering.

    The proof of this conspiracy has and is being proven in the step by step acquisition of private and DNR land by the National Park Service, as this is being written and during the last 21 years from 1992 to 2013.

    The nine page summary includes some of the 48 year history of Clallam County from 1944 to 1992 and is his proof of the conspiracy.

    Ceremony marks change of name to Daniel J. Evans Wilderness

    OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — Dignitaries will gather at Hurricane Ridge today to celebrate the dedication of the Daniel J. Evans Wilderness.

    Daniel Evans is a former U.S. senator and Washington governor whose efforts played a key role in the preservation of more than 1.7 million acres of wilderness in the state, Olympic National Park officials said.

    The Olympic Wilderness, which covers 95 percent of the park, has been renamed to honor Evans for his contributions to wilderness preservation, park spokeswoman Penny Wagner said.

    “It’s not changing the wilderness,” Wagner added. “It’s not adding or subtracting land. It’s just a renaming of the existing wilderness.”

    The public is invited to the dedication ceremony.

    The event will be from 10:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the west end of the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center parking lot.

    Parking will be available on a first-come, first served basis.

    Invited speakers are Evans, U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer, former U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks, state Sen. Hans Zeiger, Olympic National Park Acting Superintendent Lee Taylor and Sequim author Tim McNulty.

    In 2016, Cantwell, D-Mountlake Terrace, and U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Seattle, introduced S. 3028, while H.R. 5397 was sponsored by members of the Washington delegation in the House, including Derek Kilmer.

    Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor, represents the 6th Congressional District, which includes the North Olympic Peninsula.

    The bill was signed into law Dec. 14, 2016, by President Barack Obama.

    President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Wilderness Act into law in 1964 “to secure for the American people of present and future generations the benefits of an enduring resource of wilderness,” Olympic National Park officials said in a news release.

    The idea was to preserve a remnant of the country’s untamed, wild places as wilderness for the permanent good of the people.

    Wilderness areas help protect complex ecosystems, natural processes and habitat for threatened and endangered species, park officials said.

    In March 1988, Evans introduced the Washington Park Wilderness Act with former Sen. Brock Adams.

    The bill proposed more than 1.7 million acres of wilderness within Olympic, Mount Rainier and North Cascades national parks. It was signed into law by President Ronald Reagan in November 1988.

    The act designated 877,000 acres in Olympic National Park as the Olympic Wilderness.

    Evans served three terms as Washington governor from 1965 to 1977. He was a senator from 1983 to 1989.

    Evans and his wife, Nancy Evans, live in Seattle’s Laurelhurst neighborhood.

  • WA State NO Preparation for Nuclear Attack?

    RCW 38.52.010 Definitions.

     RCW 38.52.030, was passed into law in 1983

    However, “emergency management” or “comprehensive emergency management” DOES NOT MEAN PREPARATION FOR EMERGENCY EVACUATION OR RELOCATION OF RESIDENTS IN ANTICIPATION OF NUCLEAR ATTACK.

    ————————————————————————–

    REPUBLICAN John Dennis Spellman was the GOVERNOR OF WA STATE between 1981 and 1985 and the first King County Executive from 1969 to 1981

    The author of the 1983 state law preventing a nuclear attack plan, former  Democratic state lawmaker Dick Nelson, felt that if Seattle suffered a nuclear attack, the chances of survival would be so low that a preparation plan would have been moot anyway.

    The author of the state law preventing a nuclear attack plan, former Democratic state lawmaker Dick Nelson, says at the time, Washington state was inundated with nuclear threats, and the idea was to create an example of peace.

    “It was about finding a middle ground we could all agree on,” he said in April.

    Nelson also felt that if Seattle were to be attacked, the chances of survival would be so low that a preparation plan would have been moot anyway.

    But Nelson says the law does provide an “out” so cities can create their own plan. He says the law doesn’t necessarily prevent a plan from being put into place, but rather offers the option of not creating a plan.

    APR 27, 2017 REGARDLESS, THE STATE SAYS IT HAS NO EVACUATION PLAN.

    MAY 23, 2017 State Representative Dick Muri

    My proposal, House Bill 2214, along with the Senate companion bill 5936, sponsored by Sens. David Frockt, D-Kenmore, and Mark Milocsia, R-Federal Way, will remove some of the language inserted into our emergency planning laws from 1984.

    THIS NECESSARY CHANGE WOULD ALLOW FOR THE PREPARATION OF EMERGENCY EVACUATION OR RELOCATION OF RESIDENTS IN ANTICIPATION OF A NUCLEAR ATTACK.

    As always, I welcome your comments, questions and concerns. Please feel free to reach out to me in my district office in Steilacoom (253) 301-2278 or by email at dick.muri@leg.wa.gov.

    So, Aug 14, 2017 at 8:35AM,  I called Representative Dick Muri district office in Steilacoom (253) 301-2278 because he welcomes  my comments, questions and concerns.

    I spoke with a very nice young lady named  L J. And, she listened.

    As Representative Dick Muri pointed out….

    For many of us who lived through the “cold war” era, bomb shelters, air raid sirens, and nuclear drills in which school children were taught to “duck and cover,” were common occurrences.

    ———————————————————————

    I am 75 years old,  in the 1950-60’s we were school children living in fear of a  NUCLEAR ATTACK for many years.

    And, nobody bothered to talked to us about our childish fears. But of course we were tough little American kids, and we lived through it!

    Aug 14, 2017 As usual, I am a concerned American grandmother of 10 and the great grandmother of 9. And, I have concerns about the fear that the WA State revised nuclear attack emergency law will have on all of our “not nearly as tough” school children.

    As, Representative Dick Muri  pointed out…. We should be prepared for every eventuality.

    I watched the 1963 movie “Ladybug, Ladybug” once, about a month ago on AMC. The result is an engrossing film that is depressing because of its realism. It brought back old fearful memories of nuclear war and attacks (those things nobody talked about to school children) and It’s haunted me ever since.

    ‘Ladybug, Ladybug’ Reviews Fly High For Perry’s Thriller

    Successful film producer Frank Perry (“David and Lisa”) queried the 1,000 youngsters he auditioned for roles in his latest screen effort, the thought-provoking suspense film, “Ladybug, Ladybug”: “What do you think the world will be like in ten years?” Three-fourths of the perceptive children, conditioned by their parents’ reactions to the threat of nuclear war, as were their “Ladybug” counterparts, in essence replied: “What world?” This foreboding response,

    Perry feels, confirms his belief that “children comprehend more than adults give them credit for,” a point that he brings out in his film.

    Based on a true Incident, “Ladybug” presents an unarguable— and —disturbing—account of the penalty paid by modern society if It is “almost conditioned by fear.”

    Adhering to the actual events that took place in 1962 in a small California community, and which were subsequently written of in the April, 1963, issue of McCall’s Magazine,

    the film probes the inner terror and the external actions of elementary school children and their teachers, who believe that a nuclear war has begun.

    While, in reality, the mistake was soon corrected, Perry and his script-writer wife, Eleanor, wondered what would happen if their film sustained,

    for one teacher and a group of children, the dread of not knowing whether their “go home” drill was real. The result is an engrossing film that is depressing because of its realism.

    With the appearance of every freckled face and mouth only half full of teeth, as well as with each suspenseful development, the viewer reflects on the undeniable possibility of such a tragedy.

    Opening with a close-up of a hand holding a stop-watch, the picture later comes to its shattering climax with the force of the magnified snapping of an illusory mainspring.

    The effect leaves popcorn gobblers with their mouths open, and the theater uncomfortably hushed.

    While unknowns constituted half of the major cast, all the performances were more than adequately convincing. Exceptionally good in their roles were “teacher” Nancy Marchand (professional), and students Alice Playten (professional) and Christopher Howard (previously unknown). Producer, director, film-editor Perry, and his wife are making a name for themselves not only because of the speed and skill with which they make their films (“Ladybug” took 36 days to film, “David and Lisa,” 25), but also because they will only do films that they believe in.”

    “Ladybug, Ladybug,’ say the Perrys, which will begin its world premiere engagement on Friday at the Fox Lido Theater, is just such a picture.—B.H. Corsair, Volume 36, Number 10, 11 December 1963

    Representative Dick Muri (cont.)

    Inundated with threats of possible nuclear retaliation by the (then) Soviet Union, many Washingtonians grew to believe the constant nuclear drills and disaster planning efforts created a culture of fear. Anti-nuke activists, centered mainly in the Seattle area, thought our only safety was in forcing the dismantling of all nuclear weapons. Because of this, they looked upon civil defense preparations as a waste of time and resources.

    I’m working with my colleagues in the House and Senate to see this is changed. The state of Washington is responsible for the protection of the lives and property of its citizens. In the case of any type of catastrophic disaster, our residents are entitled to the protections and services of the state. We should be prepared for every eventuality.

    My request, Please consider our school children

    ————————————

    Because our time during the current special legislative session focuses on education funding issues, it is unlikely this legislation will move forward this year. I’ve introduced the bill in the House now to ensure the necessary work begins prior to the start of the 2018 legislative session.

    As always, I welcome your comments, questions and concerns. Please feel free to reach out to me in my district office in Steilacoom (253) 301-2278 or by email at dick.muri@leg.wa.gov.

    OVER THREE MONTHS LATER, AUGUST 10, 2017 KING 5 LOCAL LIBERAL  TV FINALLY GOT AROUND TO MENTIONING IT!

    A little known law is preventing Washington state for preparing for a nuclear attack.

    “Because of paranoia and scare that preparing for war would lead to war, legislators back in the early 80s set up this silly system (RCW 38.52.030, was passed into law in 1983) where we’re prohibited from planning for relocation or evacuation in the event of a nuclear war,” said Sen. Mark Miloscia (R-Federal Way), who co-sponsored the bill.

    Retired General Barry McCaffrey, who has been outspoken about the need to pay serious attention to North Korea, calls the law “goofy.”

    “Certainly it’s a goofy thing to not tell people to think about a major real threat,” he said in April. “What we’re trying to achieve is deterrence, which means ballistic missile defense.”

    Despite growing concerns about a nuclear strike on the U.S. by North Korea, emergency management officials in Washington state say they are prevented from forming an evacuation plan in the event of a nuclear attack. An effort is underway to change that.
