    WSDOT is Planning The New Elwha Bridge

    Replacing the  Elwha River Bridge is a “Federal” top down government issue.

    I emailed my Mar 9, 2017 comment to the elected that should be concerned?   And others that are genuinely concerned.

    WSDOT is working now on (option #7)  bridge design, environmental issues, land acquisition, permitting and programming. MAR 3, 2017.

    WSDOT is ONLY planning the “Transportation” future of Clallam County’s  lifeline of highway 101.

    I saw the new proposed option #7 bridge design on Mar 7, 2017, and I immediately saw the possibilities for CLALLAM COUNTY’S ECONOMIC  FUTURE LIFELINE OF TOURISM.

    The bad news  on Mar 7, 2017?  I was informed that  there has been NO planning, cooperation or coordination between WSDOT and Clallam County elected officials on the New Elwha Bridge. period

    Someone suggested that I go to a Commissioners meeting, and give them my two (2) minutes worth.

    This is not a bottom up government issue, this is a top down government issue.

    “Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.”

    So as a concerned Clallam County citizen I posted this on my website.

    The New Elwha Bridge and Rest Stop?

    The New Elwha Bridge and Rest Stop? The possibilities are endless

    ———————————————————————————-

    Indeed, Replacing the  Elwha River Bridge is a “Federal” top down government issue. I emailed my comment to the elected that should be concerned?   And others that are genuinely concerned

    WA State’s elected Federal Rep. Derek Kilmer and his new local rep.

    WA State elected Reps Steve Tharinger, Kevin Van DeWege, and Mike Chapman.

    Clallam County elected Commissioners, Mark Mosias, Bill Peach and Randy Johnson, and, elected DCD director Mary Ellen Winborn.

    I sent it to WSDOT as a public comment

    I sent it  ONP Brian Winters project manager for the Dam Removals. As an informed Clallam County citizen there is also the issue of Federal accountability, responsibility, restoration for the irreparable destruction of the bridge caused by the removal of the Elwha River Dams and the tribes manmade log jams upriver from the bridge.

    Jan 11, 2017 – Battered by Dam Removal Elwha Bridge Destroyed A DAM TRAGEDY THE ELWHA RIVER BRIDGE MARCH 11, 2016 Andy Ritchie, project …

    ————————————————————————————-

    And the cost of replacing the Battered Elwha River Bridge is only $29.5 million dollars of tax payers money.

    —————————————————————

    A DAM TRAGEDY THE ELWHA RIVER BRIDGE

    The feds removed the Elwha River Dams. The Tribes got what they wanted for the fish, the Feds financed the removal of the Elwha River Dams with citizens taxpayer money. When the feds removed the dams, the citizens of Clallam County were the biggest losers. Citizens  lost their clean inexpensive hydro electric power producing dams, flood protection, and water storage for drought.

    The tribes were allowed by the feds to install huge manmade log jams for the fish on the Elwha River inside the Olympic National Park.

    During subsequent  flooding events, Nov 17, 2015, a devastating flood event occurred, the 300,000 public tourists and  private land Inholders  access road to Olympic National Park was lost, Gated by the ONP.

    During subsequent  flooding events the huge logs from the tribes manmade log jams became battering rams that destroyed public and Inholder campground recreational facilities. And, eventually battered and destroyed the Elwha River Bridge.

      —————————————————————————————-

    Restitution from  the federal government to the citizens of Clallam County for the financial loss incurred by the removal of the Elwha River Dams, is long overdue.

    —————————————————————————————–

     March 7, 2017  After looking at the WSDOT plans for the New Elwha Bridge and the  importance of Norm’s Resort property plus the WDFW boat launch property combined is nearly 50 acres of previously developed recreational land.

    The importance to the citizens of Clallam County, the economic necessity for tourism, Indeed, the possibilities and opportunity for a Clallam County rest stop, picnic area, a river walk on both sides of the Elwha River, that could provide another new Clallam County Recreational Park.

    ——————————————————————————-

    WSDOT is planning Clallam County’s transportation future. period

     The limited opportunities to get the rest area/river walk/picnic area/camping area idea in front of WSDOT in support of coordinated planning with the Clallam County Board of commissioners, prompted the posting on my website.

    The New Elwha Bridge and Rest Stop?

    Clallam County elected representatives should be in position “NOW”  to plan the Economic future of its citizens with WSDOT so they can do something about it “NOW”

     “Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.”

    How important is Clallam County’s economy

    Mar 12,2017 I called our local newspaper  PDN and  and radio station KONP

    They have access to my comment “The New Elwha Bridge and Rest Stop?”

    —————————————————————————————–

    I was reminded, that there is public tourist recreational access on the Elwha River

    The Highway 112  The Elwha River Trail bridge.   This segment of ODT starts with a crossing of the Elwha River on a new 586 ft trail bridge suspended 70 ft above the river underneath the auto deck. with views of the river and flood plain below.

    INDEED, THE ODT A CYCLING DREAM COME TRUE

    MAY YOU BE YOUNG ENOUGH AND FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO RIDE THE DREAM!

    PUBLIC RECREATIONAL ACCESS TO ELWHA RIVER PUBLIC FACILITIES

    TO THE EXCLUSION OF OTHERS THAT ARE TOO OLD, DISABLED AND HAVE  LESS INCOME?

    ————————————————————————————–

    The New Elwha Bridge and Norm’s Resort

    Who’s Norm?  What’s he got to do with it?

    IN 1979  Norm’s Resort on the Elwha River gave free public recreational access on ten or more acres of private land.

    Norm’s Resort  was at the intersection of the Highway 101 Elwha River Bridge and the defunct Olympic Hot Springs Road.

    As a  witness with living memory of what Norm’s Resort provided to our community

    Norm’s Resort provided “we the people”  and tourists with free public access,  a peaceful walk on the banks of the Elwha River under towering trees, fishing holes to fish in, a store, cabins, picnic area and rental boats.

    What a store it was… a very public establishment with very friendly people, food, snacks and then there was the fishing tackle.

    How do I know all this stuff about NORM’S RESORT?  because it was personal.

    In 1979, my two teenage sons and i spent an entire summer at our family Elwha River. “Inholders” recreational property inside the Olympic National Park,  accessed using the Olympic Hot Springs Road.

    The boys spent half of their time fly fishing, and the other half of their time walking 3 miles on the Olympic Hot Springs Road (one way) down to NORM’S RESORT to replenish their mosquito flies.

    The old guys met, drank coffee, socialized and even spent their time to teach my boys how to play “Ship Captain and Crew”

    NORM’S RESORT  was the go to Place. And it was very busy.

    Got tourists? Need fishing gear? Got milk? Need groceries?

    Indeed, in 1979 Clallam County had millions of tourist and our city and county flourished.

    ————————————————————

    i could stop at this point because it’s personal, But I won’t because IT IS PERSONAL

    ———————————————————————————–

    Later in the early 1980’s, Norm’s Resort provided their  boats to the Clallam County  Law Enforcement Explorer Post.( LEEP’S)  for search and rescue.

    As a  witness with living memory of  what NORM’S RESORT PROVIDED TO OUR COMMUNITY

    ——————————————————————————–

    A drunk driver missed the curve at the Elwha River bridge on highway 101.

    Directly in front of NORM’S RESORT, the truck flipped upside down as it plunged into the river

    A  young woman was thrown from the truck and missing in the Elwha River.

    The response was Clallam County search and rescue, the Sheriff’s Dept. dive team, Reserve’s and The Law Enforcement Explorer Post.( LEEP’S) and an advisor (Pearl Hewett).

    NORM volunteered his small rental row boats to The Law Enforcement Explorer Post.

    ( LEEP’S) SEARCH AND RESCUE TEENAGERS and an advisor (Pearl Hewett) so they could search for young woman.

    The Sheriff’s Dept. dive team gave up their search and left.

    With due diligence and perseverance the  ( LEEP’S) SEARCH AND RESCUE TEENAGERS and an advisor (Pearl Hewett) continued the search up and down the river in the NORM’S RESORT small rental row boats.

    That afternoon a 14 year old member of the LEEP and an advisor (Pearl Hewett) found  the body of the young woman, pinned underwater in a log jam, on an island in the middle of the Elwha River.

    (I could stop at this point)

    But, I won’t…. It was a traumatic incident for both the 14 year old and myself.

    Our boat came to rest in the log jam directly over her body, her lost wooden clog was above her,  an unbearable  view of her.  The 14 year old boy jumped up to get out of the boat, I made him sit down, he said he was going to be sick.

    The Elwha River was roaring so loudly it took us over a half an hour of yelling to attract the attention of someone one the east bank. (no cell phones back then)

    Using hand gestures we indicated that we had found her body.

    We sat in the boat and waited. while another teenage  LEEP ran up to Norm’s store and called the Sheriffs Dept.

    We sat in the boat and waited  until the Sheriff Dept Dive team arrived.

    We sat in the boat and watched as the Dive team tied off her body so it would not  be washed downstream.

    We sat in the boat and watched as she was pulled across the river and laid face down in a sheriff’s Dept. boat.

    Traumatic? face down? because rigor had her knees bent and set at a 90 degree angle ….and the purple socks she was wearing….

    THE PDN REPORTED on the incident

    WITH NO MENTION OF THE PART THE TEENAGE  LAW ENFORCEMENT EXPLORER POST.( LEEP’S) PLAYED in finding and recovering.

    Indeed, the destruction of NORM’S RESORT is personal.

    AND NOW 2017 ?  use the same worst case scenario?

    A drowning recovery on the Elwha River without Norm’s Resort and his small rental boats?

    ——————————————————————————-

    Yep… It’s Personal…

    IN 1979 WE HAD FREE ACCESS TO ELWHA RIVER  RECREATION ON PRIVATE LAND

    IN 2013 REQUESTS WERE MADE IN PUBLIC COMMENTS ON THE SHORELINE MANAGEMENT UPDATE (SMP)

    REQUESTING, THAT THE NEARLY 50 ACRES IN U.S.A. LIMBO LAND, SHOULD BE GIVEN TO CLALLAM COUNTY FOR PUBLIC ACCESS.

    The public overwhelmingly told DOT it should replace the bridge and put it on a new alignment. The cities of Forks and Port Angeles, Clallam County and the Port of Port Angeles also urged DOT to build on a new alignment.

    DOT is working now on bridge design, environmental issues, land acquisition, permitting and programming, Wynands said.

    He said the hope is DOT will acquire funding during this legislative session. DOT has submitted its budget and requested about $29.5 million, he said.

    THE TOWN LYCEUM (in this case, the Young Men’s Lyceum of Springfield, ONE OF A NATIONWIDE NETWORK OF 3,000 SUCH SPEECH-MAKING SOCIETIES begun by Josiah Holbrook in 1826)

    SINCE THE RULES OF THE LYCEUM FORBADE POLITICAL SPEECHES, Lincoln could not directly attack Douglas, BUT BECAUSE HIS AUDIENCE WAS POLITICALLY AWARE, he could assume that they had read ‘Conservative No.2’ earlier in the day and thus understood that Douglas was the target of his remarks about the coming Caesar. IT WAS EVIDENTLY A CLEVER MANEUVER TO CIRCUMVENT THE BAN ON PARTISANSHIP AT THE LYCEUM.”

    LET IT BE TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS, IN SEMINARIES, AND IN COLLEGES;

    LET IT BE WRITTEN IN PRIMERS, SPELLING BOOKS, AND IN ALMANACS;

    LET IT BE PREACHED FROM THE PULPIT, PROCLAIMED IN LEGISLATIVE HALLS,

     AND ENFORCED IN COURTS OF JUSTICE.

    AND, IN SHORT, LET IT BECOME THE POLITICAL RELIGION OF THE NATION; AND LET THE OLD AND THE YOUNG, THE RICH AND THE POOR, THE GRAVE AND THE GAY, OF ALL SEXES AND TONGUES, AND COLORS AND CONDITIONS, SACRIFICE UNCEASINGLY UPON ITS ALTARS.

    Let every American, every lover of liberty, every well wisher to his posterity, swear by the blood of the Revolution,

    NEVER TO VIOLATE IN THE LEAST PARTICULAR, THE LAWS OF THE COUNTRY; AND NEVER TO TOLERATE THEIR VIOLATION BY OTHERS.

    AS THE PATRIOTS OF SEVENTY-SIX DID TO THE SUPPORT OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, SO TO THE SUPPORT OF THE CONSTITUTION AND LAWS,

    LET EVERY AMERICAN PLEDGE HIS LIFE, HIS PROPERTY, AND HIS SACRED HONOR;–

    LET EVERY MAN REMEMBER THAT TO VIOLATE THE LAW, IS TO TRAMPLE ON THE BLOOD OF HIS FATHER, AND TO TEAR THE CHARACTER OF HIS OWN, AND HIS CHILDREN’S LIBERTY.

    PERMIT FOR THE FRESH FRUIT PACKING INDUSTRY

    PUBLIC NOTICE OF DRAFT GENERAL NATIONAL

    POLLUTANT DISCHARGE ELIMINATION SYSTEM (NPDES)

    PERMIT FOR THE FRESH FRUIT PACKING INDUSTRY

    Introduction: In 1994, the Washington state department of ecology (ecology) developed an NPDES general permit to regulate the discharge of wastewater from fresh fruit packing facilities.

    This permit was developed to meet the requirements of chapters 90.48, 90.52, and 90.54 RCW as amended, and the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (FWPCA) (Title 33 United States Code, Section 1251 et seq.) as amended. All requirements of 40 Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.) 122.41 and 122.42 are incorporated in this general permit by reference.

    The fruit packing industry is eligible for coverage under a general permit due to: (1) The similar wastewater characteristics among facilities; (2) the uniform discharge conditions to which all facilities would be subject; and (3) the significant reduction of resources necessary for permit handling. However, individual NPDES/state waste discharge permits will still be applied in those instances where ecology determines the general permit is not appropriate for a facility or an individual facility does not wish to be covered by the general permit.

    This general permit establishes treatment/disposal methods, effluent limits, and best management practices for discharges from the fresh fruit packing industry. Compliance with this general permit is anticipated to protect human health and waters of the state.

    Types of Facilities or Dischargers and Geographic Area Covered: Every new or existing fresh fruit packing facility within the entire state of Washington which receives, packs, stores, and/or ships either hard or soft fruit is required to apply for coverage under either this general permit or an individual NPDES/state waste discharge permit.

    Documents Available for Review: You may download a copy of the draft permit and fact sheet at http://www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/wq/permits/fruit_packers/index.html; or you may request a copy from Cynthia Huwe, (509) 457-7105 or e-mail cynthia.huwe@ecy.wa.gov.

    Public Workshops: Public workshops concerning this draft general permit shall be held on May 18, 2016, in Union Gap and May 19, 2016, in Leavenworth. WebDMR training will also take place on these dates. Please see below for location and exact times.

    This notice will be published in the legal section of the Yakima Herald-Republic and the Wenatchee Daily World on May 4, 2016. A mailing containing this notice will be sent to all current permittees and other interested parties.

    Final Determination: All comments received at the public hearings or at ecology’s central regional office by 5:00 p.m. on June 17, 2016, will be considered before final permit terms, limitations, and conditions are established. A responsive summary of comments received during the comment period will be prepared and available for public review. If the final content of the general permit remains substantially unchanged from the draft permit, a copy of the final determination in the form of a public notice of issuance shall be forwarded to all persons who submitted written comment or gave public testimony regarding the permit. However, if the final determination is substantially changed, another public notice of draft permit shall be published.

    Economic Impact Analysis: Ecology completed a new economic impact analysis that will be available May 2016, on department of ecology’s publications and forms web site located at https://fortress.wa.gov/ecy/publications/UIPages/Home.aspx.

    Tentative Determination to Issue: After ecology receives and considers all public comments, it will issue the final permit. Ecology expects to issue the general permit in August 2016, with an effective date of September 1, 2016.

    THIS IS HER STORY… Oregon candidate exposes social, economic catastrophe caused by federal control in Josephine County

    Posted by ReaganGirl in Environmental extremism, Federal Control, Oregon

    February 26, 2016
    An Open Letter to Presidential Candidates from Josephine County, Oregon
    By Toni Webb, candidate for Commissioner of Josephine County
    TO: Candidates running for President of the United States

    This letter is to inform you of the struggles faced by the people of Josephine County, Oregon, due to ongoing problems with the federal government’s control of our public land, including our once-productive forests. Bad policies and misguided management by federal agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management, have left our rural county economically and socially devastated.

    I hope that you, as candidates for President of the United States, will seriously consider why the effort to transfer the ownership and control of public lands back to western states, like Oregon, is so critical to our survival.
    I am from Josephine County, Oregon.
    Because of federal land-taking, we now have a broken county with a median household income less than the State of Mississippi. My father owned a sawmill here in the 1940’s; anyone who wanted to work could easily find a job. In the 1960’s, Josephine County had 53 sawmills; the revenue for Public Safety was around $18 million per year. Josephine County, Oregon, has relied on the use of our natural resources for Public Safety, Education, and necessary Public Projects. We now live under the constant threat of having to close the jail; and this July we will receive our last congressional subsidy of $4.3 million. Use of our resources has declined to the point that we are now an impoverished county largely dependent on welfare and government social services.
    Earlier this month—the last remaining sawmill in our county closed indefinitely because they could not get enough logs to fill orders. We’ve gone from 19 sheriff’s patrols to a budget for only three patrols by this summer. Our County government laid off 127 people in 2012; 90 of those people were in the Sheriff’s Department.

    All promises from the Federal government to Josephine County have been broken. The government has not honored its commitment in the 1937 O&C Act, and the Bureau of Land Management and the Forest Service have incrementally reduced the timber harvests for two decades.

    The BLM and Forest Service close vital roads throughout the county, so that we can’t put out forest fires. Those agencies then refuse to let us log the burnt areas and derive some income from the catastrophe.

    Management of our lands by Washington, DC, has proved to be a disaster to our county, both in terms of revenue for necessary services and in terms of modern forest management practices for sustainability.

    The EPA runs roughshod over our private and public lands; overly-zealous environmental activists derive much of their income from government grants. Environmental groups consistently portray logging as environmentally-destructive “clear-cutting”, when in fact, timber companies in Oregon are well-known for responsible, sustainable forest management.

    With this loss of use of our land to generate revenue and provide jobs, come many of the predictable social problems, as indicated below: drug abuse, health problems, rise in student dropout rates, children living in poverty, increased homelessness, and reliance on welfare subsidies.

    This is the result of not having control and benefit of our county land.
    Poverty in Josephine County has reached the point that we cannot pass a property tax levy to fund public safety. Having barebones public safety negatively impacts our ability to retain and attract businesses and qualified workers.

    We would appreciate having the support of our presidential candidates for the transfer of our lands from federal mismanagement.

    We need your help to prevent further loss and to reverse the losses that have plunged our county into poverty.

    No matter which candidate emerges from the Presidential race, we will be looking to support the candidate who will be in favor of transferring the control of public lands to the states. If you want to restore the promise of America, start with Josephine County and help us help ourselves.
    Thank you and Best Wishes,
    Toni Webb
    Josephine County, Oregon

  • I Saw Something and I Said Something

    I SAW SOMETHING on Jan 26, 2011 and I have been  SAYING SOMETHING EVER SINCE.

    8-10 American Citizens that were afraid of of what their government was going to do to them with the Clallam County Shoreline Management Act (SMP) update.

    I thought SOMEBODY should do something about that. Then I thought, I AM SOMEBODY  and I am going to do SOMETHING ABOUT THAT.

    Jan 27, 2011 I called and I SAID SOMETHING to the reps  answering the phone at the listed Olympia WA phone numbers, I left messages of concern for my 3 WA State elected representatives. Hargrove, D-Hoquiam and Representatives Tharinger (D-Dungeness) and Van De Wege (D-Sequim)

    Feb 27, 2016, I am still waiting for a written response.

    At the next Clallam County Commissioners meeting, I SAID SOMETHING ABOUT THAT

    “When American citizens are afraid of what their government is going to do to them, that is unacceptable to me.”

    (the public gallery applauded and the PDN published)

    Related image

    After the meeting, I had a few words with Clallam County Commissioner Mike Chapman about the SMP UPDATE.

    With his back to me, as he walked away Mike said “If you don’t like the way things are going, go down stairs and sign up for the SMP Citizens Advisory Committee.

    I like things to happen, and if they don’t happen I like to make them happen.

    I did sign up, as an unpaid volunteer, I was appointed by Elected DCD (Department of Community Development) director Sheila Roark-Miller

    And, as they say  “That’s when the war began”

    I sat for about two years, on the  SMP UPDATE CITIZENS COMMITTEE?  as one of five or six private property owners committed to protecting shoreline private property rights against the WA State Dept Of Ecology (DOE) 

    I made over 160 documented public comments on the Clallam County SMP website, to protect shoreline private property rights.

    He asked me, what do you want for an image or picture?

    The personal viewing of  Abraham Lincolns statue at night in WA D.C. left a permanent image  imprinted in my mind.

    He asked me, what do you want for a message?

    The words Abraham Lincoln spoke on November 19, 1863. in the Gettysburg address….

    That government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

    And,  Abraham Lincoln said  “The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here”

    However, many American citizens do remember, and I made a note of it.

    He asked me, people will want to know something about you, why are you doing this?

    Well, what could I say? Actually it was pretty easy, you know, like the midnight ride of Paul Revere April 18, 1775 warning “One if by Land Two if By Sea”….

    Where There’s a Won’t They Don’t

    In a reelection campaign speech, our Clallam County Commissioner Mike Chapman  said “If we don’t want you to do it, we will make it as difficult as possible”

    Go figure… With this attitude against what our local citizens want, Mike Chapman was reelected.

    YEP… It’s the same guy.

    The same elected commissioner that turned his representative back to me, and said, if you don’t like the way things are going.

    He ignored me and he offended me…

    And, as they say  “That’s when the war began”

    I like things to happen, and if they don’t happen I like to make them happen.

    THIS IS MY 676 COMMENT ON behindmyback.org

    Whether you like my ongoing war with the government, or hate it,

    from Jan 26, 2011 to Feb 27, 2016 its still going on.

    And….. It’s all Clallam County Commissioner Mike Chapman fault..

    Of course, Women may also be effected and effective with the “mama bear” phenomenon.  A biological bit of “I am woman watch me roar.” Call it the “Mama Bear N Politics”

    I may seem quiet and reserved, but if you mess with my children, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

    Hmmm… I have three children, ten grandchildren and eight great grandchildren and the government is messing with their future.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    The exact geographic locations of many Camp Elwha projects are not always readily identifiable and, in fact, much of their work has been obliterated over the years. However, the overall effect of the various CCC projects undertaken by the Elwha Camp is very much a part of the overall development of recreational use in certain areas in the northern part of Olympic National Park.
    The work of the Elwha CCC Camps is not unique but, in fact, is representative of the kinds of projects pursued by several other work camps supervised by the National Forest Service on the Olympic Peninsula. Prior to the 1938 creation of Olympic National Park, other CCC main camps and side camps located on Forest Service land around the Peninsula likewise stimulated recreational activity in areas now contained in the Park.

    CCC CAMP LOUELLA WAS LOCATED NEAR SEQUIM WA.

    Never heard of it?

    CAMP LOUELLA WAS LOCATED NEAR AN OLD FOREST GUARD STATION OVERLOOKING A SHALLOW VALLEY BETWEEN TWO LOW MOUNTAINS WHICH WAS DRAINED BY A SMALL CREEK CALLED JIMMY-COME-LATELY CREEK. AT THE HEAD OF THE VALLEY THERE WAS A CONSIDERABLE DROP DOWN TO THE DUNGENESS RIVER.

    ———————————–
    CAMP LOUELLA TOOK OVER COMPLETION OF THE ROAD TO DEER PARK (PORT ANGELES EVENING NEWS 1934, 3 APRIL). IN RECOGNITION OF THE EFFORTS OF THE CCC IN COMPLETING THE WINDING DEER PARK ROAD, IT BECAME KNOWN AS “THE HIGHWAY OF THE CCC” (CARROLL 1973, 103).

    The Biography of Robert Bulchis is an absolutely amazing history of Company 937 of the Civilian Conservation Corps.

    Robert Bulchis is a man of many words over 50,000 of them in his Biography document.

    Unfortunately, my Dad, George C. Rains Sr., was a man of few words.

    Dad was in the Civilian Conservation Corps in the Olympic National Park

    Just saying….

    Many of the young men in the CCC went on to become prominent foresters, businessmen, and even State legislators

    I’ve spent most of this day reading Robert Bulchis Biography.

    I like this man, I like men that hitch hiked back in the day, I have never found any history of the Olympic National Park, my park, with so much detail, the places, the names, the interwoven trail, the observations and descriptions of the CCC Camps  and the young men that worked in them.

    Indeed, in researching, in depth, finding my park, I have found a treasure trove of  Olympic National Park history.

    NOW YOU HAVE HEARD OF CAMP LOUELLA AND YOU KNOW THE HISTORY OF THE CCC CAMP LOCATED NEAR SEQUIM WA.

    I encourage you, to read Robert Bulchis entire biography

    It starts on CHAPTER 4–ON THE ROAD: DEPRESSION YEARS BEGIN

    and treat your self to  a copy of his book “Frontier Legacy”.

    Biography of Robert Bulchis

    Before the end of winter we began hearing about the Civilian Conservation Corps which Congress had just authorized. I don’t recall precisely when we finished our work on the park so I’m not sure where I was when I applied and was selected as an enrollee. But I believe we had wound up our work and were back in the soup kitchen again when I got word of my acceptance for service in the CCC’s in April of l933.
    ——————————————————————————————–
    CCC enrollees were paid $30 a month of which $25 normally went to the enrollee’s family as part of their welfare and each enrollee received just $5 for his personal use. Because I was not then considered to be a resident of Washington I was accepted only if I agreed to have my $25 go to someone on the state’s welfare rolls. My $25 thus went to a couple of elderly sisters on welfare who I did manage to see once during a visit to Seattle. This continued for several months of my enrollment period before I was able to get it changed so that my mother, also on welfare in Pennsylvania, finally received that $25.

    CAMP EASTON
    I was enrolled in Company 937 of the Civilian Conservation Corps. According to the Certificate of Discharge which my sister, Betty, saved for me all these years, my enrollment date was May 23, l933. Initially I was assigned to CAMP EASTON close to the shores of Lake Cle Elum, not far from the town of Cle Elum. We slept in a number of Army tents in a logged off ponderosa pine forest. l don’t recall whether we had four or six men to a tent. Our cots lined the perimeter of each tent and in the center of each on a bed of bricks was a conical stove with the stove pipe emerging through an opening in the center of the tent. There was an abundance of wood in the area but the guys liked to cut up the many pine stumps found throughout the area. They usually were almost solid pitch. When fed into the little stoves they burned fiercely and hot consuming the oxygen faster than it could be fed to the fire. That little stove amused us immensely as it danced away on its little bed of bricks becoming red hot in the process. Although the stove pipe too became progressively red hot, sometimes almost to the top, fortunately, on all such occasions nothing adverse ever happened in our tent. One of the other tents was not as lucky because when the pipe became red hot at the top it set the tent on fire. Anyway, our tents were usually cozy and warm.
    Our job in this area was to build dirt roads through the forest for the Forest Service. The one I worked on was over a ridge from Lake Cle Elum toward the town of Easton through which I-90 now passes. I was on a crew clearing the right-of-way by cutting the brush and trees growing on it which we burned with a big bonfire every day.
    With fall well along and winter not too far ahead, for quite some time we had been wondering what we had in store for us for the coming winter. It obviously was not possible for us to continue as we were into the winter.

    ————————————-
    AFTER CAMP EASTON
    MY TOUR OF SERVICE AT CAMP LOUELLA NEAR SEQUIM BEGAN ON NOVEMBER 8 OF 1933.
    Finally the word came. WE WERE HEADED FOR THE OLYMPIC PENINSULA NEAR A TOWN NAMED SEQUIM. I DIDN’T KNOW IT THEN, BUT THIS NEW MOVE WOULD LEAD TO CONTACTS AND ACTIVITIES WHICH WOULD CHANGE THE COURSE OF MY LIFE.
    THE DISCHARGE BETTY SAVED FOR ME SHOWS THAT MY TOUR OF SERVICE AT CAMP LOUELLA NEAR SEQUIM BEGAN ON NOVEMBER 8 OF L933. THE CAMP WAS LOCATED NEAR AN OLD FOREST GUARD STATION OVERLOOKING A SHALLOW VALLEY BETWEEN TWO LOW MOUNTAINS WHICH WAS DRAINED BY A SMALL CREEK CALLED JIMMY-COME-LATELY CREEK. AT THE HEAD OF THE VALLEY THERE WAS A CONSIDERABLE DROP DOWN TO THE DUNGENESS RIVER

    ————
    The camp was substantially completed when we arrived although much work still remained to be done. We had a number of large wooden barracks for sleeping quarters with separate mess and laundry buildings, also shops of various types to support the work we were to do.

    —————————————

    The camp was on a gentle slope facing east across the farmland in the valley toward the larger of the ridges which was covered with a heavy stand of young second growth evergreens. The soil was a thick gumbo mud when the fall and winter rains arrived so that wooden walkways were constructed connecting all of the buildings. Despite these walkways we still had a constant battle throughout the winter fighting that mud.
    Inside the barracks wooden bunks had been built on either side of a center aisle in tiers of three. The height of the third bunk scared some of the guys, so much so that one fellow tied himself to his bunk every night for fear he might fall out while sleeping. There were woodburning stoves at each end and in the center of each barrack which kept us pretty warm.

    ——————————-
    Our primary projects in this area again were concerned with building forest roads. I was assigned to the Gold Creek crew. I remember that the name of the crew’s boss was Walt Peterson, apparently once a logger. A logging accident had left him with an obviously stiff elbow. I enjoyed working with him.

    ———————————
    Building roads in the Olympics was a more complex job than in the Cle Elum area because of the heavier rainfall and heavier brush and timber. We had much larger trees to fall, often old growth trees six feet or more in diameter. I had to cut down a six footer one day and it took me and my partner half a day to get it down. Since we were concerned only with clearing the right-of-way we enjoyed watching those big trees go crashing down the mountainside. We had to put in quite a few culverts. These we fashioned out of the many western red cedar trees we felled. Some of the guys were assigned to work with mechanical equipment such as bulldozers and tractors, but I was never given that opportunity. Perhaps it was obvious that I was not so gifted. Similarly a few of the more reliable were given jobs as powder monkeys with the job of blasting out the tree stumps left in the right-of-way.

    ————————
    Toward the end of spring I left the Gold Creek crew when I was picked to do some fire patrol work for Monte Mapes, the Quilcene District Ranger, in whose district our camp was located. This was a fortunate assignment as it was to lead to my first employment with the Forest Service the following year.

    ————————————-
    Less than a mile from camp just before the drop off to the Dungeness River was a meadow in which we were almost sure to see some deer as we passed by. It was the property of an old man named Schmith. Present day maps show Schmith Knob overlooking the site. Schmith’s log cabin was located at the end of the meadow nearest to our camp. The story as I heard it was that Schmith was the captain of a sailing ship that anchored in Discovery Bay into which Jimmy-Come-Lately Creek flowed several miles away. He is supposed to have deserted his ship there and homesteaded the site I speak of. Supposedly each winter as the cold weather arrived he had stacked a pile of books and other reading material alongside his bed and hibernated in bed during the entire winter getting up only long enough from time to time to take care of life’s necessities. We must have spoiled his routine that winter because we came by often and he seemed always glad to see and converse with us.

    ——————————————-
    Most of the guys went into Sequim periodically during their free time. I don’t recall specifically what shenanigans they got into but there didn’t seem to be much to do in that town.

    ————————————-

    AFTER CAMP LOUELLA my enrollment came to an end on July 10, l934.

    Fifteen months was the enrollment period and my discharge certificate shows that my enrollment came to an end on July 10, l934. Actually I served less than fifteen months as I was enrolled about a month and a half later than other members of my group because of the delay occasioned by my non-Washington residence.

    I owned a packboard which I had made earlier in camp from Alaska yellow cedar. To this I tied my bedroll, extra clothes, and supplies and off I went. First I hiked up the Dungeness River trail to Three Forks where the Greywolf, Grand, and Cameron Rivers meet. There I spent my first night sleeping in the Greywolf leanto shelter, one of many such log leantos then in existence in the Olympics. I understand that most of these have since been destroyed because they became too filthy after so many years of use. From here on the rest of my hike was in what is now the Olympic National Park. At that time it was the Olympic National Monument and the Forest Service had the responsibility for providing it with fire protection. On my second day I hiked up the Greywolf River still in the high country in the shadow of Mt. Deception, at over 7000 feet rivaling Mt. Olympus in height; then over a pass to the Dosewallips River still in the high country meadows, distinctive enough there to be labeled the Dose Meadows; then it was up the Dosewallips River valley over Hayden Pass alongside Sentinel Peak to the Hayes Creek drainage.
    I’ll never forget those nine miles from the pass on the side of the ridge paralleling Hayes Creek as I hiked, down-down-down, my legs seemingly pounding the trail with each step, until my leg and back muscles just ached.

    It was dusk when I reached the ELWHA RIVER, too tired to do much cooking for supper, mostly just bedded down for the night in the Hayes Creek shelter. Next morning I fashioned a crude fishing line with a branch, string, and hook and caught myself a few trout for breakfast in the Elwha River. I don’t know what the fishing regulations were in those days, probably didn’t even give a thought to whether or not I needed a fishing license.

    Then began a leisurely hike up the Elwha River valley and eventually over the Low Divide to the North Fork of the Quinault River.

    ——————————————————-
    It was nearly five days after I left Camp Louella that I found myself in a campground with the usual leanto on the Quinault River. I believe it was what was called the Wolf Creek Shelter near the end of the forest road up the Quinault River valley. I had been fortunate in having nice weather for my entire hike until that last morning when I woke to find it raining. I delayed my departure that day hoping the rain would stop. During my entire hike of five days I did not meet a soul on the trail, but that morning while I waited for the rain to stop a group of Seattle mountaineers came by and I was able to quickly make them some hot drinks with water I had boiling. They told me about their recent climb to the top of Mt. Olympus which at that time was considered to be the highest mountain in the Olympics. Seems that since then one of the mountains on the Mt. Constance–Mt. Deception ridge was found to be a bit higher.
    They told me how they were above the clouds in bright sunny weather atop the peak of Mt. Olympus. Looking down they could see this beautiful circular rainbow with the mountaintop in its center. Such a sight was rarely seen in those days, but it is a relatively common sight nowadays with aircraft flying at or above 30,000 feet.

    One of the mountaineers offered me a ride to Port Orchard when they were picked up later that day. And so it was that I retrieved my belongings at the Reite homestead,

    ALL SET FOR THE NEXT STAGE OF MY LIFE.
