    Marv Chastian – Back to 1492

    A plan which is now in process of becoming federal policy ~ was hatched many years ago by two radical eco-freaks – Dave Forman the Earthfirst guy and Oregon State prof, Reed Noss.

    ——————————————————————————–

    “It is a bold attempt to grope our way back to October 1492 and find a different trail, a trail overgrown and nearly forgotten” – Words of Dave Forman, founder of Earth First – and more recently, a director of The Sierra Club. He goes on to describe his intellectual child, The Wildlands Plan: “We seek wolf tracks rather than gold” . . “Return big, charismatic species such as buffalo, grizzly bears, elk, wolves, puma (otherwise known as cougars) to their pre-Columbian haunts.” These are words he used to describe his plan for America – about 20 years ago. At the time, it appeared to be just another crazy rant. Today, it is a shadow plan being stealthily realized by government fiat.
    He goes on: “a vast system of connected wilderness reserves that would crisscross the continent . These reserves would dwarf the largest national parks. Rather than build roads, laborers would remove existing ones, along with dams, power lines and other human-made structures. Planners would choose the reserve sites with plants and animals, not people , in mind, selecting them not for recreational opportunities, but for their ecological potential. Up to half the contiguous United States would be involved in a transformation whereby “islands” of civilization would be surrounded by wilderness tracts and corridors.”
    Note: since the animals would be connected, the people would not – except by air – and probably we would be forbidden to use airplanes, since they might disturb the animals.

    “We live for the day when grizzlies in Chihuahua have an unbroken connection to grizzlies in Alaska, when grey wolf populations are continuous from New Mexico to Greenland, when vast, unbroken forests and flowing plains again thrive and support pre-Columian populations of plants and animals”. So says Forman and co-author Reed Noss, prof at Oregon State in Corvallis, OR.

    50 Grizzlies require about 12 million acres – about a dozen Olympic National Parks)

    “Our goal is to create a new political reality based on the needs of other species”, Forman. In 1492, Cholera, rabies, smallpox, yellow fever were rampant. Without modern medicine, industry, etc and with people stacked up in big city high rises, they would become rampant again.

    You can bet the half of the US to be converted to an animal park is the Western Half – not the Eastern. It starts with places such as the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. Not too many people live here. It you destroy their livelihoods and industry, they will leave on their own.

    This is the philosophy behind the Elwha fiasco. Salmon is simply a word thrown in to get the backing of the public. But destroying the only spawning area for Elwha salmon certainly is not the way to enhance them. Forman’s dream is coming true. Do you like it?

    Government has already torn up many forest roads. Bureaucrats are working to deny people water, insist on huge “buffer zones” for most everything. They like to call it “science”. But it has all the earmarks of religion. Real science is that which you can prove. Unproven theories can just as easily be religion as science.

    For a dozen years bureaucrats working on unproven theories have denied us the use of a fabulous 70 acre piece of ground right next to the Port Angeles harbor. A few years ago, they denied us the valuable use of another large tract of waterfront property using the tribe as their excuse. The (so called) natives are simply immigrants who’s ancestors got here earlier than our European ancestors. Yet the WILD LANDS plan hints that maybe they will be allowed to stay in the great animal park to hunt with bow and arrow? I don’t think so. But, the idea is loaded with sentimentality – so they use it.

    One interesting and revealing clue about the true philosophy of modern “animal rights activists” is their selection of the species they attribute rights to. They are nearly all predators. Early settlers battled hugely against predators. Predators killed their livestock and sometimes people. To encourage people with the necessary skills and weapons, they put bounties on wolves and other predatory creatures. And I recall from my youth, men I knew who made their living off those bounties. Today, those bounties have been replaced with fines and/or imprisonment if you do kill predators. All of that helps to discourage folks from living in the country and eliminates attractive species (deer, elk, mountain goats, etc)

    I have video that shows salmon runs in the Elwha were excellent 50 years after the dams were built. Also video of the gorgeous Trumpeter Swans which visit the Elwha each winter – but not again after this coming one, and video showing the disgusting landscape and air full of rock dust when the upper lake was drawn down by only 10% back in the 90s. If your group would like to see it, let me know.

    —————————————-

    So sorry to hear this Karl. I never had the privilege of meeting Marv in person. Only through our digital communications with the group. His input and views have always been very enlightening to me as with yours and Pearls. Learned a lot, laughed a lot and shook my head even more so, in agreement. Surely I will keep his memory with me. His cyber friendship to all of us, though so brief, is worth a page in our book of life.  We lost another good patriot, our neighbor Debra Perry, also on the 20th,  who served as our republican district caucus leader for years. God gained two true souls that day, who while on earth touched ours.It’s never to late to thank Marv for his friendship and goodwill.  Spirits are a powerful energy. Isn’t that what Marv left us all with? The powerful energy of his spirit to carry on? and believe in those dreams and in ourselves? We can thank him everyday for that spirit of friendship, to carry on. Next time I feel like giving up, I will think of Marv, his love for our country, of life and how he never gave up. He kept his faith. 

    I’ll put a blessing in a card from us, for Jolene and get it off this week.

    Best to you all and thanks again

    Removal of the Elwha Dams – The great Olympic Peninsula Environmental Scam

    Editorial by Marv Chastain

    Posted 6/3/2010

    Clallam County, WA – In 1992, Congress decreed that the Elwha River must be restored. While everything else in the bill was defined, they never got around to saying what it should be “restored” to. Since nobody knows what it was in pre-settlement days, the “what” has been left up to the bureaucrats. In the intervening 18 years, they have decided that the great salmon runs of the past must be restored. However, their planning does not seem to reach to anything in the ocean and blithely ignores the fact that most of the salmon do not return because they are being caught in the ocean anywhere from Siberia to Alaska to Canada to the US straits of Juan de Fuca, not only by commercial fishermen of the world, but by a huge army of US-protected sea lions, seals and other fish-eating birds and mammals.

    They have focused on the two power dams built in the early 20th century without fish ladders. Now there is no question that leaving out the fish ladders was a big mistake (they substituted a hatchery for the legal requirement for a fish ladder, with the approval of the state legislature). However, it was a mistake that could have been corrected at any time – even now. Environmental groups – Sierra Club, Earth First, and others have consistently blocked any effort to build those fish ladders, insisting on removing the dams, so now the government has bought the dams, including about 900 acres of good timber with plans to destroy those dams and the lakes they have created – in 2012. (Evidently it has taken 20 years to figure out “how”.)

    It appears the real problem is that one of those two dams in located inside the Olympic National Park (ONP). It is a big man-made structure that has created a beautiful lake (Mills) that is home to a great variety of waterfowl, water mammals and FISH. But, park people do not like anything man-made (except money).

    That dam was built in 1927, long before the ONP became a national park, by a group of local entrepreneurs headed up by Thomas Aldwell . The same group built the first dam about five miles up from the river mouth in 1910-13. Those two dams produced the first electricity for the city of Port Angeles and the local mills. During World War I, the first dam produced electricity to run the Bremerton Navy yard. As time has gone by, the local demand for electricity has exceeded the output of the two dams, so a power line from Bonneville (built in the 1930s) supplies Port Angeles and the dams’ power goes exclusively to the Daishowa paper mill.

    Just removing the dams won’t do. When the first dam was built, qualified engineering was hard to come by on this peninsula (1910). They built a huge concrete block but failed to get is properly secured to the river bed. When they closed the gates and filled up the lake, the full pressure of 100 feet of water, pushed the river right under the dam. This project was one which the dam owners had everything invested in and they were desperate. They set off a huge blast of dynamite in the rock cliffs on each of the side of the river, blowing rock down into the river bed and filling in about 75 feet behind the dam.

    When the dam is removed, there will still be a 75 foot rock and fill dam that goes back at least 100 yards from the concrete dam. That will have to be removed if salmon are to ascend the river. That will involve diverting the flow (you can’t operate heavy construction equipment in a flowing river and a salmon can’t jump 75 feet).
    Original cost estimate was $329 million 1992 dollars

    Ever hear of a big government project with vague parameters that cost less than the original estimate? That’s at least half a billion in today’s dollars.

    Loss of waterfowl and mammals

    Elwha lakes are heavily used by waterfowl (about 20 different species) and water mammals such as beaver, according to a survey of waterfowl  done (at your expense) by Martha Jordan, secretary of the Trumpeter Swan Society and an honest scientist. Somehow, that survey got carefully left out of the government’s Environmental Impact Statement.

    20+ million cubic yards of gunk

    The deluge of detritus released by removal of the lower dam will inundate the river below the dam with an average of six feet of gunk (per the government’s own scientific report). That is the only spawning ground for the fabulous Elwha Chinook – a distinct sub- species. A salmon hatchery has been built in another stream to hatch Elwha Chinook to replace the sub-species that will be destroyed. But, a government report, bearing the name of “Winter” (Brian Winter – chief of the government Dam destruction team?) written before the project was hatched, warns that this tactic may not work and an entire population should not be destroyed in anticipation that it will.

    It is also highly questionable if the salmon hatched in another stream will somehow know they are Elwha salmon. Nobody knows the mechanism or timing for a salmon being imprinted with his/her native stream.

    Why not just build a fish ladder and allow them to go on up?

    Trumpeter Swans on lake Aldwell – The world’s largest waterfowl – magnificent

    To be evicted by the Elwha project

    $27 Million Dollar “ Deal

    The government bought the dams and 900 acres of good timber for the bargain price of $27,000,000. They did so with the threat that if the owner didn’t sell, they would be forced to remove the dams at their own expense. I have it on what I consider good authority that the power produced by the dams earned the owners a nine million dollar profit in the last year they owned them. That extortion generated profit now goes to the National Park Service (NPS).  That profit may be the number one reason that removal has been delayed year-by-year now for about 12 years.

    Note: The above list is of waterfowl observed by Martha Jordan in 1994 and 1995. That does not necessarily mean it is the only waterfowl that use or nest around the lakes. This survey was paid for by the park service, but left out of their EIS (for obvious reasons).

    Strange supporters

    Why does the Audubon Society and other groups calling themselves “environmental”  support this fiasco?

    Reliable reports indicate spotted owls nest in the area.

    The cost to salmon

    The Elwha dams, unlike most hydro-electric dams, are operated on a “run of the river” basis. That is, they are normally run in such a fashion that the outflow is as nearly as possible identical to the inflow – giving the lakes a normal water level. However, in dry summers, extra water is spilled to help the salmon runs. When the dams are out, where will this extra water come from?

    The dams produce an average of 19 megawatts of electrical power. They do this with nearly century old equipment. With modern equipment, they could produce much more.

    Cost may include someone’s well

    Bottom pressure on Lake Mills is in excess of 8700 lbs per square foot. Geologic maps show a fault line running diagonally across the lake. Logic says this amount of pressure is forcing water into the fault and then into an acquifer. Who’s well will go dry when the lake is drained?

    The magnificent claims by the dam buster group that 400,000 salmon will return to the Elwha after the dams are removed, consists primarily of pink and chum salmon.   These fish do not rear in a river. They just hatch out and drift down to salt water. Hence they can be hatched in any stream and do not need the Elwha’s resources.  .  .  .  .  .JMC

    Trump Leading 67% to Hillary’s 19% in National Poll of 50,000 Voters
    POLITICS August 13, 2016
    Ever since the Democratic Convention, the only poll results being reported by the liberal mainstream media show that Hillary Clinton is slowly pulling ahead of Donald Trump. Of course the same liberal mainstream media had been conducting a biased editing and reporting campaign to show Trump in a bad way and glorify Hillary.

    They edited his comments about the Muslim parents of whose son was killed in action while serving in the US military. Trump stated about the mom not speaking, the liberal media intentionally edited out when Trump stated that that’s what others have written. They made it to look like those were Trump’s own words.

    They edited his comments about the Muslim parents of whose son was killed in action while serving in the US military. Trump stated about the mom not speaking, the liberal media intentionally edited out when Trump stated that that’s what others have written. They made it to look like those were Trump’s own words.

    Now all of the controversy surrounding the way liberals have twisted Trump’s comment about people who value the Second Amendment. Hillary and even the Kennedy family have twisted it in such a way as declare Trump is inciting violence in some form. However, none of the same liberal media, nor Clinton nor the Kennedy family mention the fact that Hillary once stated that Obama could be assassinated.

    The sad part is that so many people today believe everything they hear and see from the liberal mainstream media. They take the reports as gospel.

    Did you know that in most of the polls, where they are reporting a Clinton lead, are conducted in such a way as to bias the outcome? Often, they only poll 100 up to 1,000 people. Not only are their sample sizes statistically small, but they often poll areas that are known to be predominately Democratic, hence, it only makes sense that Hillary is ahead.

    But you probably have not heard about one poll that was recently taken where they polled 1,000 people from every state. Yep, 50,000 people were polled. They intentionally called 33% Republicans, 33% Democrats and 34% Independents and the results were so astonishing that none of the national liberal media have dare report it.

    The poll was conducted by the Arizona Freedom Alliance and according to their post:

    ” We’ve been telling you the difference between a media poll and an internal poll. Media polls are driven by the desire to achieve a certain outcome. That is why you think Hillary is leading Trump by 10 points. If you were paying attention, one of these polls had Hillary up by 15 points before the GOP convention. After the convention, Trump was up 15 points, a 30% jump! Statistically impossible. After the democrat convention, Hillary was up 10 points, a 25% swing. Again, can’t happen. The media is jerking our chain. DO NOT believe them. The only polls that can be believed are internal polls that are rarely made public. While the poll below is not an internal poll, it was done in a most interesting manner – with no perceived bias. And it is YUGE!”

    “And by the way, it nearly mirrors what internal polls are showing. By any accurate measure, Hillary is NOT leading Trump in the minds of the voters.”

    ‘We have just completed our own poll since we cannot get factual information from the mainstream media!! We called 1000 homes in each of the 50 states and asked basic questions on the economy, terrorism, immigration and presidential pick.”

    “Economy was the number one factor that Americans are concerned about and terrorism was number two.

    Presidential pick was Trump by a large percentage.
    Trump 33478 votes 67%
    Clinton 9788 Votes 19%
    Undecided or other 6739 votes 13%”

    “My friends and I are all Graduate students from all walks of life. We meet to discuss stuff… 13 people who like and have served in the Military. It took us most of two weeks to be sure our calls were to all people and not just one party or another. We called Americans.. our poll is by taking registered voter lists and we accumulated 33% repub, 33% dems and 34% ind.. our poll consisted of 1000 calls per state. all 50 states. 50,000 people are in this poll not the 100 like other polls.”

    Mike Pence. “CONFESSIONS OF A NEGATIVE CAMPAIGNER.” Indiana Policy Review (October 1991): pp. 5-6.

    It is a trustworthy statement, deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all.

    — 1 Timothy 1:15

    In the wake of the 1990 election cycle, after one of the most divisive and negative campaigns in Indiana’s modern congressional history, the words of Saint Paul provide an appropriate starting point for the confessions of a negative campaigner.

    Negative campaigning is wrong. That is not to say that a negative campaign is an ineffective option in a tough political race. Pollsters will attest — with great conviction — that it is the negatives that move voters. The mantra of a modern political campaign is “drive up the negatives.”

    That is the advice political pros give to Republican and Democratic candidates alike, even though negative ads sell better for Democrats. (My admittedly biased explanation is that Republican voters disregard a Democrat’s negative ads as “predictable” while expecting a Republican to be “above that sort of thing.”)

    But none of that explains my conversion. It would be ludicrous to argue that negative campaigning is wrong merely because it is “unfair,” or because it works better for one side than the other, or because it breaks some tactical rule.

    The wrongness is not of rule violated but of opportunity lost. It is wrong, quite [simply, because*]  he or she could have brought critical issues before the citizenry.

    And this wrongness is not limited to the personal but extends to the general. Yes, it was personally wrong for me to waste my moment and limited campaign dollars talking about how an opponent might or might not have financed a rural retreat. But in my party’s defeat, as unaddressed issue piled upon unaddressed issue, it seems more grievous that the faithful were left with so few clues as to how I would have governed differently.

    CAMPAIGNS OUGHT TO BE ABOUT THREE SIMPLE PROPOSITIONS:

    FIRST, A CAMPAIGN OUGHT TO DEMONSTRATE THE BASIC HUMAN DECENCY OF THE CANDIDATE. That means your First Amendment rights end at the tip of your opponent’s nose — even in the matter of political rhetoric.

    SECOND, A CAMPAIGN OUGHT TO BE ABOUT THE ADVANCEMENT OF ISSUES WHOSE SUCCESS OR FAILURE IS MORE SIGNIFICANT THAN THAT OF THE CANDIDATE. Whether on the left or the right, candidates ought to leave a legacy — a foundation of arguments — in favor of policies upon which their successors can build. William Buckley carries with him a purposeful malapropism. “Don’t just do something,” it says, “stand there.”

    Third and very much last, campaigns should be about winning. A fellow member of the Failed Politician’s Club told me recently, “Our only mistake was that we thought that winning was the most important thing we could do.” He considers it more than a literal correction that Vince Lombardi’s exact words were, “Winning isn’t everything, but wanting to win is.” (The “winning is everything” line was spoken by the ignoble and now forgotten Red Sanders.)

    Negative campaigning is born of that trap. But one day soon the new candidates will step forward, faces as fresh as the morning and hearts as brave as the dawn. This breed will turn away from running “to win” and toward running “to stand.” And its representatives will see the inside of as many offices as their party will nominate them to fill.

  • Violating Private Property Rights

    THERE’S NO CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO TRESPASS ON PRIVATE LANDS.

    Federal judge dismisses challenge to Wyoming trespassing law

    “The ends, no matter how critical or important to a public concern, do not justify the means, violating private property rights,” U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl wrote….

    By BEN NEARY Associated Press Updated Jul 7, 2016

    CHEYENNE — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit from groups that challenged Wyoming laws prohibiting trespassing on private lands to collect data.

    Groups including the Western Watersheds Project, the Natural Resources Defense Council and the National Press Photographers Association sued Wyoming last year.

    The groups claimed state laws prohibiting trespassing to collect data were unconstitutional. The groups said the laws, which allowed both civil penalties and criminal prosecution, would block people from informing government regulators about such things as violations of water quality rules and illegal treatment of animals.

    U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl of Casper dismissed the groups’ lawsuit Wednesday, ruling there’s no constitutional right to trespass on private lands.

    “The ends, no matter how critical or important to a public concern, do not justify the means, violating private property rights,” Skavdahl wrote.

    Skavdahl last winter expressed concerns about earlier versions of the laws, which the Wyoming Legislature had passed early last year. The earlier versions sought to prohibit collection of data on “open lands,” a term Skavdahl said could be stretched to cover more than just private property.

    In response to Skavdahl’s criticism, the Wyoming Legislature earlier this year revised the laws to specify they only applied to trespassing to collect data on private lands.

    Gov. Matt Mead on Thursday said he was pleased with Skavdahl’s dismissal of the groups’ lawsuit.

    “There has been a lot of misinformation about the intent of this law,” Mead said. “The judge’s ruling affirms that the issue at the heart of the matter is preserving private property rights — a fundamental right in our country.”

    David Muraskin, a lawyer representing Western Watersheds and the National Press Photographers Association, said Thursday that his clients are disappointed with Skavdahl’s ruling and are considering whether to appeal.

    Oct 21, 2014 – This is the PRESUMED law of the LAND in WA STATE. Goggle it for … This is PRESUMED TO BE CONSTITUTIONAL BY THE AG. You live in …

    Presumed to be Constitutional?

    This is WA State Law RCW 77.12.154

    These “STATE  EMPLOYEES” may enter upon “ANY LAND” or waters and remain there while performing their duties without liability for trespass.

    ——————————————————————————————-

    The US Government has taken the position that they can do anything that they want, where ever they want whenever they want. Remember the Olympic Peninsula Electronic Warfare Project? And, they got away with it until “We the People” demanded Due Process.

    ——————————————————————————————–

    Who Knew? About this is WA State Law RCW 77.12.154

    It took me two months, with the help of an attorney,  to find this  WA State Law, it was buried under the  “Right of entry”  Aircraft operated by department.

    —————————————————————————————————-

    When I told people about the law, they wouldn’t believe me. They said

    They can’t do that on my “PRIVATE PROPERTY” without my permission, without probable cause, without a search warrant.

     —————————————————————————————–

     You want to bet the government can’t do it on your private property?

    I have the documentation of hundreds of these incidences.

    In fact it is documented that FROM APRIL 21, 2010   TO FEB. 5, 2011 WDFW did knowingly trespass on every piece of private property AROUND LAKE SUTHERLAND, And on every piece of private property from Lake Sutherland down and on both sides of Indian Creek to the Elwha River.

     Indeed, They have been doing it and they are going to keep doing it, and keep doing  it until “We the People” demanded Constitutional Due Process.

    “The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.”

    IT HAPPENED TO MY (removed for privacy)   WHAT DID SHE DO?

    SHE OWNS A GUN…

    She went outside and confronted the TRESPASSER. “This is private property” “What are you doing here?”

    The strangers response (he did not identify himself) was “I just wanted to see where this stream came from.”

    She told him, “This is private property” and asked him to get off of her land.

    So if you see some unknown guy, anytime, anywhere, A TOTAL stranger wandering around and trespassing IN YOUR BACKYARD, on your private property?

    May 2, 2014 – Here, then, are the top six top lies told by the White House with regard to the … President Obama Called The Benghazi Attacks Terrorist Attacks.

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Did All She Could To Protect State Department Personnel. In her now-infamous testimony before Congress, Clinton shouted, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” with reference to the source and rationale for the attacks. Obviously, it made a difference to the White House, which wanted focus on the YouTube video rather than on “broader foreign policy” issues.

    Hillary has never answered where exactly she was that night. According to Hicks,

    after speaking briefly with Hillary Clinton at 2 a.m. on the night of the attacks, she never called back to find out the latest developments.

    Barack Obama, too, is absent from the Benghazi story; we now know he never entered the Situation Room.

  • Find Your Park Open Doors Remove Barriers

    Find your park. It’s your place, It’s your thing.

    It’s a Fact. The Federal Parks belong to all of us.

    Open Doors,  Remove barriers, Tell your story, Make a difference.

    On Mon Feb 8, 2016 2:30PM there was a meeting  at Olympic National Park Headquarters regarding the closure of the Olympic Hot Springs Road to all public and private access. I told my story, expressed my concerns on the economic impact to the local community and asked my questions.

    Four of my government representatives listened, responded and answered questions

    ——————————————————————

    Clallam County Commissioner  Bill Peach opened the door.

    As required in the ERFO guidelines, under the  program, Federal agencies and local government entities have the responsibility to perform emergency repairs, shift project and program priorities, give emergency relief work prompt attention and priority over non-emergency work, and assist the Office of Federal Lands Highway in its stewardship and oversight responsibilities.

    ———————————

    Three, National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior, Olympic National Park local Representatives  attended the meeting.

    M. Sarah Creachbaum
    Superintendent, of the Olympic National Park

    Lisa Turecek, PE
    Chief of Facilities Management

    Brian Winter
    Elwha River Project Manager

    I was delighted to have the opportunity to meet with them face to face.

    I was delighted at the conclusion of the meeting, strictly based on my understanding of the contents of the meeting, of the expeditious actions that have been taken and will be taken in the future.

    —————————————————————

    This comment is intended to inform others, to share for the record, the information from the notes I took at the Feb 8, 2016 meeting.

    I was delight with the positive response from M. Sarah Creachbaum
    Superintendent, of the Olympic National Park.

    Sarah showed genuine concern for the economic well being of local people, she cares about the local people, they are her people.

    When I suggested that she do a news release to inform we the concerned people

    Using  the  progress reported by Lisa,  the expeditious steps taken with the  ERFO Program for the reopening the Olympic Hot Springs Road to provide access to the ONP public tourist, and private property owners.

    You know, like a message of hope from the Superintendent, of the Olympic National Park, for the economic future of  the local business people, for increased employment… for the the rush of  tourism created by the removal of the dams.

    Sarah agreed to do a press release…

    And I was delighted.

    ——————————————————————–

    However, after hours of more in-depth research, done after the meeting, included  in this comment,  that provides additional documentation……

    Being delighted, and staying delighted with the ONP, are two different things! This is not my first rodeo with the Olympic National Park Service.

    Indeed, if I have made unintentional errors in this comment, I will do an immediate update on this website and  a retraction immediately.

    But for the record here goes… Taken from the notes I took at the Feb 8, 2016 meeting.

    Lisa Turecek, PE
    Chief of Facilities Management

    The expeditious Steps she has taken with the  ERFO Program to reopen the Olympic Hot Springs Road

    Nov. 17, 2015 The Olympic Hot Springs Road (and trails) had a disastrous flooding event

    Nov 2015 file a notice notice of intent for Emergency Relief Program for funding

    Dec 2015 file a formal notice notice for Emergency Relief Program for funding

    Jan 2016 received  recognition of Elwha River disastrous flooding event

    Jan-Feb? completed? damage survey required for ERFO amount of funding?

    Note It was stressed by Lisa and Brian  that the ERFO  was for roads only?

    ———————————————————————-

    Additional  research and documentation on ERFO funding for trails

    To be eligible for ERFO funding under 23 U.S.C. 125(e)(2), trails and transit systems must be included in the inventory of Tribal or Federal Lands Transportation Facilities. Trails included in the inventory should provide access to high-use recreation sites or Federal economic generators.

    ————————————————————–

    Bill asked if the Olympic Hot Springs Road would be open by the 4th of July?

    ——————————————————————–

    Note It was stressed by Lisa and Brian  that the Army Corp of Engineers must, be given time, up to 60 days? Because a 100 foot bridge ( at  undisclosed location?)  must be built.

    When will the road be reopened to  public and private access?

    Lisa’s guesstimated was four months from the time that construction was permitted to start.

    Brian Winter
    Elwha River Project Manager

    That tentative plans to proceed shall required NOAA consultation under section 7, the endangered species act (ESA) Not necessarily additional restrictions, just consultation?

    ———————————————-

    Which led to my questions to Brian Winter Elwha River Project Manager on the funding and planning for the removal of the Elwha Dams.

    I was just asking? Just saying? In particular…

    The ONP budget $$$ and plans for removal of the Elwha dams in the Elwha district included flood barriers and restoration (among other things)

    The ONP budget and plans for removal of the Elwha dams in the Elwha district included
    flood barriers for the tribes?

    I asked Flood barriers? only to protect the Elwha tribe? Flood barriers? only protect tribal land?

    I asked Brian to correct me if I was wrong.

    He did. emphatically…

    Flood barriers were provided for  the tribes and private property on the West side of the mouth of the Elwha River and And, flood barriers were provided for private homes down stream from the dam removals.

    —————————————————–

    I am certain, that…
    Flood barriers were in place to protect all tribal historic heritage sites and
    to all protect tribal access, roads and trails
    ————————————————————————-

    Feb 9, 2016 I’m asking for a response from  Brian on the following unanswered questions?

    In particular…Funding and planning for the dams removal provided?
    No flood barriers in the Elwha district to protect the best interest of citizens?
    the, over 300,000 million national park visitors
    No flood barriers? to protect citizens public and private access to roads and trails?
    No flood barriers? to protect citizens public and private property?

    ——————————————————————

    I repeat for clarification, Brian’s emphatic answer…

    In addition to the tribes protection, some private property and homes were given flood barriers in the funding and planning of the Elwha dam removals

    Flood barriers were provided for  the tribes and private property on the West side of the mouth of the Elwha River and And, flood barriers were provided for private homes down stream from the dam removals.

    ———————————————————————-

    I’m asking for a response from  Brian on the following unanswered questions?

    Funding and planning for the dams removal provided?
    No flood barriers? to protect citizens public and private land, trails, campgrounds campsites and facilities?
    No flood barriers? to protect citizens historic heritage sites?
    No flood barriers? to protect private property owners property?
    ——————————————————————————–

    I directed additional questions to Brian Winter, as the  Elwha River Project Manager on the funding and planning for the removal of the Elwha Dams.

    The ONP budget $$$ and plans for removal of the Elwha dams in the Elwha district included restoration (among other things)

    I received no response to these questions from Brian.

    Elwha River restoration? Just restoration and planting of native plants?

    No restoration $$$ for public and private roads and trails?
    No restoration $$$ for access into Elwha district the Olympic National Park?
    No restoration $$$ for public and private campgrounds campsites and facilities?
    No restoration for citizens Elwha district historic heritage sites?
    ————————————————————–
    Did the ONP budget and plans for removal of the Elwha dams in the Elwha district included or require mitigation and compensation $$$ for the flood damage caused to the private landowner campsite’s, inside the park, downstream from the dam removal?

    full text Emergency Relief for Federally Owned Roads (ERFO)

    On December 4, 2015, the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act of 2015 (the “FAST Act” or “Highway Funding Act”) was signed into law replacing MAP-21. We are in the process of revising the information on this page to address this new legislation.

    The Emergency Relief for Federally Owned Roads Program, or ERFO Program, was established to assist federal agencies with the repair or reconstruction of tribal transportation facilities, federal lands transportation facilities, and other federally owned roads that are open to public travel, which are found to have suffered serious damage by a natural disaster over a wide area or by a catastrophic failure.

    The intent of the ERFO program is to pay the unusually heavy expenses for the repair and reconstruction of eligible facilities.

    The ERFO program is not intended to cover all repair costs but rather supplement Federal Land Management Agency (FLMA) repair programs. Repairs are classified as either emergency or permanent repairs.

    Emergency repairs are those repairs undertaken during or immediately after a disaster to restore essential traffic, to minimize the extent of damage, or to protect the remaining facilities. Prior approval is not required, however all other eligibility requirements of the program still apply.

    Permanent repairs are those repairs undertaken after the occurrence of the disaster to restore facilities to their pre-disaster conditions. Prior approval is required.

    The ERFO program provides assistance to other federal agencies whose roads meet the definition of “open to public travel” such as: Bureau of Reclamation; Department of Energy (previously under jurisdiction of the Bureau of Reclamation, i.e., owned by the Western Area Power Association); Department of Defense (Military Installation roads); and Surface Deployment and Distribution Command (Defense Access roads).

    The Federal share payable for the repair of tribal transportation facilities, federal lands transportation facilities, and public roads on federal lands is 100 percent under the ERFO Program. Funds for the ERFO Program are provided from the Highway Trust Fund and the General Fund through the Emergency Relief Program for Federal-aid Highways. ERFO funds are not to duplicate assistance under another Federal program or compensation from insurance, cost share, or any other source.

    The Office of Federal Lands Highway is responsible for efficient and effective management of public funds entrusted by Congress and for ensuring that the ERFO Program is administered consistent with laws, regulations, and policies.

    Applicants are expected to prioritize the repair of ERFO projects that are in the public’s best interest, based on available funds. Federal agencies and local government entities have the responsibility to perform emergency repairs, shift project and program priorities, give emergency relief work prompt attention and priority over non-emergency work, and assist the Office of Federal Lands Highway in its stewardship and oversight responsibilities.

    Transportation
    Federal Highway
    Administration

    Memorandum

    Subject: Information: Emergency Relief for Federally Owned Roads (ERFO) MAP-21 Program Guidance Date: December 11, 2012
    From: Joyce A. Curtis
    Associate Administrator for Office of Federal Lands Highway
    In Reply Refer To: HFL-1
    To: Federal Lands Highway Division Engineers

    This purpose of this memorandum is to provide guidance for changes to the Emergency Relief for Federally Owned Roads (ERFO) program.

    Section 1107 of the “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act” (MAP-21), enactedJuly 6, 2012, amended 23 U.S.C. 125 “Emergency Relief” as follows:

    • (e) TRIBAL TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES, FEDERAL LANDS TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES, AND PUBLIC ROADS ON FEDERAL LANDS.-
      • (1) DEFINITION OF OPEN TO PUBLIC TRAVEL.-In this subsection, the term ‘open to public travel’ means, with respect to a road, that, except during scheduled periods, extreme weather conditions, or emergencies, the road is open to the general public for use with a standard passenger vehicle, without restrictive gates or prohibitive signs or regulations, other than for general traffic control or restrictions based on size, weight, or class of registration.
      • (2) EXPENDITURE OF FUNDS.-Notwithstanding subsection (d)(1), the Secretary may expend funds from the emergency fund authorized by this section, independently or in cooperation with any other branch of the Federal Government, a State agency, a tribal government, an organization, or a person, for the repair or reconstruction of tribal transportation facilities, Federal lands transportation facilities, and other federally owned roads that are open to public travel, whether or not those facilities are Federal-aid highways.
      • (3) REIMBURSEMENT.-
        • (A) IN GENERAL.-The Secretary may reimburse Federal and State agencies (including political subdivisions) for expenditures made for projects determined eligible under this section, including expenditures for emergency repairs made before a determination of eligibility.
        • (B) TRANSFERS.-With respect to reimbursements described in subparagraph (A)-
          • (i) those reimbursements to Federal agencies and Indian tribal governments shall be transferred to the account from which the expenditure was made, or to a similar account that remains available for obligation; and
          • (ii) the budget authority associated with the expenditure shall be restored to the agency from which the authority was derived and shall be available for obligation until the end of the fiscal year following the year in which the transfer occurs.

    Section 1508 of MAP-21 amended 23 U.S.C. 120 “Federal share payable” as follows:

    • (e) EMERGENCY RELIEF.-The Federal share payable for any repair or reconstruction provided for by funds made available under section 125 for any project on a Federal-aid highway, including the Interstate System, shall not exceed the Federal share payable on a project on the system as provided in subsections (a) and (b), except that-
      • (1) the Federal share payable for eligible emergency repairs to minimize damage, protect facilities, or restore essential traffic accomplished within 180 days after the actual occurrence of the natural disaster or catastrophic failure may amount to 100 percent of the cost of the repairs;
      • (2) the Federal share payable for any repair or reconstruction of Federal land transportation facilities, Federal land access transportation facilities, and tribal transportation facilities may amount to 100 percent of the cost of the repair or reconstruction;

    Effective October 1, these provisions will be implemented as follows:

    • In addition to tribal transportation facilities and Federal lands transportation facilities, other Federally owned roads that are “open to public travel”, whether or not those facilities are Federal-aid highways, are eligible for ERFO funds. This provides ERFO eligibility to Federally owned roads that may not meet the definition of a tribal transportation facility or a Federal lands transportation facility. The intent of this provision is to focus the limited ERFO funds on those facilities that are surfaced and maintained for standard passenger vehicles. Therefore, roads passable ONLY by high-clearance vehicles are not eligible for ERFO under this provision. High clearance roads no longer eligible for ERFO may be eligible for assistance under FEMA or other programs.
    • To be eligible for ERFO funding under 23 U.S.C. 125(e)(2), trails and transit systems must be included in the inventory of Tribal or Federal Lands Transportation Facilities. Trails included in the inventory should provide access to high-use recreation sites or Federal economic generators.
    • Section 125(e)(3) of title 23, United States Code, was amended to add language affecting the reimbursement to Federal Land Management Agencies (FLMAs). When FLMAs use their own funds for emergency and permanent repairs, ERFO funds can go back to the FLMAs original account or a similar account and remains available for obligation. Additionally, the budget authority shall be restored to the agency from which the authority was derived and shall be available for obligation until the end of the following fiscal year.
    • The Forest Highway program is repealed at the end of FY12. Forest Highways are no longer eligible for ERFO funding, unless they are Federally-owned roads that meet the requirements of 23 U.S.C. 125(e). Other State and local roads that do not meet the requirements of 23 U.S.C. 125(e) may be eligible under the Federal-aid Emergency Relief program or FEMA.
    • For eligible ERFO repairs accomplished more than 180 days after the occurrence of the natural disaster or catastrophic failure on facilities other than those meeting the definition of a Federal land transportation facility or tribal transportation facility, the Federal share payable shall be in accordance with 23 U.S.C. 120, including the sliding scale provision of 23 U.S.C. 120(b).
    • Federal land access transportation facilities are not eligible for ERFO funding under 23 U.S.C. 125.

    Repairs for Program of Projects (POPs) approved prior to and after October 1 will proceed under MAP-21 provisions. See FHWA Treatment of Carryover Highway Program Funding table. If you have any further questions, please contact Mr. Sergio Mayorga at 202-366-9491.
