    Instead of these decisions being made by local elected officials, the Department of Ecology uses its position of authority to bully local jurisdictions and dominate the process — despite what Gordon White, Shorelands and Environmental Assistance Program Manager for DOE (current salary $102,767) stated at the hearing (see 14:38).

    April 21, 2014

    Glen Morgan
    Adjunct Fellow

    Last Thursday, members of the Washington State Senate convened in Sumner to discuss the damaging effects of the Shoreline Management Act (SMA) on property rights.  We referenced this hearing here. Of particular interest in this discussion was the role the Department of Ecology plays in the SMP update process.

    Legislators in attendance were Sen. Pam Roach (R-31st), Sen. Bruce Dammeir (R-25th), Sen. Jan Angel (R-26th), Sen. Doug Ericksen (R-42nd), Sen. Bob Hasegawa (D-11th), and Rep. Graham Hunt (R-2nd).

    Pierce County Councilmembers Dan Roach, Jim McCune and Joyce McDonald also came to ask questions and listen to public comment.

    Fortunately, for all those unable to attend, you can see the complete TVW coverage of this hearing here, and I would strongly recommend anyone who cares about property rights, or who wants to see citizens point out the many problems with the Department of Ecology, to watch and share this video.

    Approximately 150 residents attended the hearing.  Many of them also testified.

    The meeting was initiated due to the concerns raised by many residents of Pierce County about the Department of Ecology imposing significant changes to the current Pierce County Shoreline Master Plan that are not supported by the public.

    The required seven-year update is taking place right now in Pierce County, and the façade of the SMP update being a “locally driven process” is quickly fading away. Nobody really believes there is much local control over the process. The public had a big laugh at the Department of Ecology during the hearing when its representatives made this claim.

    Instead of these decisions being made by local elected officials, the Department of Ecology uses its position of authority to bully local jurisdictions and dominate the process — despite what Gordon White, Shorelands and Environmental Assistance Program Manager for DOE (current salary $102,767) stated at the hearing (see 14:38).

    In my testimony (at 1:03:00), I highlighted examples (obtained through public records requests) of Ecology’s negative attitude towards citizens and the dismissive attitude they have towards those who disagree with them.  Here they are, as promised:

    1)  DOE Water Quality Program Manager Bill Moore (current salary $92,592)  referring to property owners who participated in the public process at a public hearing in Asotin County in 2011 with contempt, specifically calling them  “rable” (the misspelling is his). Citizens are rable according to DOE Bill Moore

    2)  DOE Supervisor Erik Stockdale (current salary $69,588) refusing to recognize scientific studies that disprove long-held Ecology dogma and suggesting other Ecology employees hide e-mail records from the public by deleting them. See this classic Youtube video from the San Juans.  It is unknown how successful Stockdale and other DOE employees have been at violating state law by deleting other public records. DOE Erik Stockdale lets delete these public records

    3) Creating “messaging-guides” that recommend government officials avoid talking about the impacts the SMP has on property values, property rights and personal freedom. Instead, the guide says, they should appeal to fear. The guide goes on to recommend local government officials create a “compelling SMP story,” which includes “villains” (we can safely assume this means shoreline property owners).  “Opponents” are defined as people who support “freedom and prosperity” (page 4) and the Freedom Foundation as an example of an opponent (page 5).  Our tax dollars funded this.  SMP Messaging guide for bureaucrats and pro-SMP 2012

    4)  Ecology Director Ted Sturdevant (salary was $138,523 before he went to work in Gov. Jay Inslee’s administration as executive director of the Legislative and Policy Office) referring to arguments against proposed Ecology rules as “right-wing propaganda b******t,” and calling Republican politicians who disagree with his agency’s position: “f******s.”  DOE director Sturdevant calls Republicans fkrs DOE director Sturdevant calls WPC rwbullsht DOE director Sturdevant oddly attacks tea party

    Of the various attendees from all over Washington state who attended and testified at this hearing, nobody wants to see the health of the shorelines be degraded. However, there was clearly no confidence that DOE is an honest player in this process.

    This was certainly the case for residents of Lake Tapps, where Ecology is trying to force Pierce County to apply a 50-foot buffer around the shoreline of this manmade lake.

    Unfortunately, when it comes to the SMP updates, it is clear the Department of Ecology is not an honest participant in the process. Unfortunately, the evidence shows the Department of Ecology doesn’t regulate the environment, but it clearly does attempt to regulate people, dissenters and the message.

    We are thankful that some of our elected officials are starting to look into this situation, and last Thursday’s hearing was a great start towards exposing the truth about the abuse by state government agencies.

    “Rabble”

    Another sample DOE email shared by various DOE employees – citizens are at “homer simpson” level of intelligence: DOE employee Zink says citizens are like homer simpson level

    Still a little confused about how the Dept. of Ecology is organized at the top level?  That’s okay, most of these state agencies are set up to be a little confusing.  Here is a brief upper management org chart.  A more detailed and complete org chart can be obtained directly from the DOE via an information request.  The 1500+ emloyee positions are pretty well connected on that chart, but it will take you some time to sort it out.

    Update:  Here is a podcast from Seattle’s KTTH David Boze’s show.

    As we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don’t know we don’t know. 

    I don’t remember when I first heard that quote?  In fact, I didn’t even know who said it.

    My  known on Jan 26, 2011, was, my Christian heritage, singing the Old Rugged Cross,  the Lincoln Memorial,  American Revolution, Paul Revere, Arlington Cemetery,  the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  

    And, I knew on Jan 26, 2011 that when American Citizens  fear their what their own government is going to do to them on WA State Shoreline Update (SMP) in Port Angeles, Clallam County WA, U.S.A., it was unacceptable to me.

    And, I thought… Somebody should do something about that.  Then I realized I was somebody and I could do something about that.

    And, of course everybody always said “Contact your elected representatives”

    My shocking, wakeup  call was on Jan 27, 2011, it was the unknown  ” I could care less attitude of elected representation”,  not one of the  three  elected Clallam County representatives  in Olympia WA bothered to respond to my American, voting, taxpaying citizens  phone calls of concern.

    So after being snubbed, pandered to, ignored, scoffed at and insulted by my county and state elected representative on every concern I had.

    I DID SOMETHING ABOUT THAT. Researching and documenting  and disseminating all levels and all things Government from Jan 27, 2011. I submitted over 150 public comments on the Clallam County SMP Update, as  an appointed volunteer  member of the SMP Citizens Committee.

    My website behindmyback.org went on line on Jan 29, 2013,  after I had documented for two years, that most of my business was being done by the government, behind my back, behind closed doors.

    I identified my mission, using the image of Abram Lincoln’s statue in WA DC, and the words of Abram Lincoln. That a Government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth.

    I identified myself three days later.

    Representative Terry Nealey (R-Dayton) and Representative Joan McBride (D-Kirkland) introduced the bills.  They would update the 1972 Public Records Act, INCLUDING FEES contained in the original law

    HB 1595, passed in the 2017 legislative session

    HB 1595 BECAME LAW ON JULY 23, 2017

    Chapter 304, Laws of 2017, sc. 3, amending RCW 42.56.120,  

    THE PROVISION OF THE PUBLIC RECORDS ACT (PRA) THAT GOVERNS AGENCY CHARGES TO REQUESTERS FOR PROVIDING COPIES OF PUBLIC RECORDS.

    According to a 2016 report from the Washington State Auditor’s Office, the number of requests increased by 36% from 2011 to 2015, and last year, state and local governments spent more than $60 million to fulfill 285,000 requests – a portion of which were automated “bot” requests from computers. Only 1% of the costs were recovered by the original law’s fee structure.

    These amendments in HB 1595 were designed to modernize this provision to reflect changes in the way agencies PROVIDE copies of records to requesters.

    and an agency must have in place either a statement following notice and public hearing that establishes the ACTUAL COSTS of producing records,

     or a rule that declares the calculation of actual costs would be “unduly burdensome.” Otherwise, an agency would not be able to impose copy fees on PRA requestors.

    HB 1595  IS A NEW WA STATE LAW EFFECTIVE  JULY 23, 2017

    WITH FEES BASED ON ACTUAL COST?

    Representative Terry Nealey (R-Dayton)  said actual costs could also be based upon a SEATTLE CITY DETAILED COST STUDY.

    “The city of Seattle estimates it will spend as much as $3 million this year for PRA request fulfilment, including electronic requests, but expects less than $10,000 in cost recovery,”

    Representative Terry Nealey (R-Dayton) added. “Our legislation would enable an agency to study its actual costs of making and preparing for delivery electronic copies of documents for a requestor,

    AND THEN CHARGE A MODEST FEE BASED ON COPYING COSTS.

    WE THINK THIS WILL REDUCE VEXATIOUS REQUESTS WHILE PRESERVING ACCESS WITH AN UPDATED FEE SYSTEM.”

    ——————————————————————————–

    AND, THEN CHARGE A MODEST FEE BASED ON ACTUAL COST?

     Behind My Back | Fee Fie Foe Fum

    www.behindmyback.org/2013/10/26/fee-fie-foe-fum/

    Oct 26, 2013 – “Feefifofum” is the first line of a historical quatrain famous for its use in the classic English fairy … http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fee-fie-foefum.

     ——————————————————————————–

    ECOLOGY is taking the latter approach, declaring by rule that it will be “unduly burdensome” to calculate actual costs, and has already filed a pre-proposal to begin the permanent rulemaking process.

    ECOLOGY will conduct this permanent rulemaking according to normal rulemaking procedures, but cannot complete it until some months after the requirements of HB 1595 take effect on July 23, 2017.

    ECOLOGY finds that it is in the general welfare and the public interest, and benefits requesters and the agency, to adopt the emergency rule in order to preserve AND UPDATE FEES in accordance with the legislatively adopted schedule.

    Without further action, this would create a period of months during which no statement or rule would be available to the public regarding PRA costs or the methods of calculating them, creating confusion and uncertainty regarding Ecology’s fee structure and ITS ABILITY TO CHARGE FEES.

    Because this appears to be contrary to the intent of HB 1595 and the PRA,

    ECOLOGY intends to adopt its declaration initially by emergency rule, to avoid confusion and to remain in compliance with the PRA, as amended.

    This declaration will allow Ecology to utilize the statutory default fee schedule created by the Legislature in the 2017 amendments starting on July 23, 2017, the date the legislation goes into effect, and to be in full compliance with the PRA, as amended.

    ECOLOGY WILL CONDUCT THIS PERMANENT RULEMAKING ACCORDING TO NORMAL RULEMAKING PROCEDURES, BUT CANNOT COMPLETE IT UNTIL SOME MONTHS AFTER THE REQUIREMENTS OF HB 1595 TAKE EFFECT ON JULY 23, 2017.

  • Due Process for Distracted Drivers Law?

    Gov. Jay Inslee (D) DUE PROCESS BY PUBLIC NOTICE?

     WA State Distracted Drivers Law ADOPTED 04/19/2017 

     VETOED by Gov. Jay Inslee (D)  MAY 16, 2017

    Gov. Jay Inslee (D) accelerated the law’s effective date to July 23, 2017

    Vagueness is generally considered to be a DUE PROCESS issue, because a law that is too vague to understand does not provide adequate notice to people that a certain behavior is required or is unacceptable.

    The “void for vagueness” doctrine argues that a law cannot be enforced if it is so vague or confusing that the average person could not figure out what is being prohibited or what the penalties are for breaking that law.

    ————————————————————————

    It doesn’t take too much effort to imagine a distracted driver suing the state over a disputed ticket for failure of DUE PROCESS ON PUBLIC NOTICE et al.

    —————————————————————-

    A law can be unconstitutionally vague in one of two main ways.

    First, the law may be void for vagueness if it does not adequately explain or state what behavior the law is meant to affect.  If the average citizen cannot figure out from reading the law what he should or should not do, a court may find that the law violates due process. 

    Second, a law may be void for vagueness if it does not adequately explain the procedures that law enforcement officers or courts must follow when enforcing the law or handling cases that deal with certain legal issues. 

    Specifically, a law may be found to be unconstitutionally vague if it gives a judge no idea how to approach or handle a case based on that law.

    —————————————————–

    ADOPTED 04/19/2017  WA State Distracted Drivers Law

    MAY 16, 2017 Gov. Jay Inslee (D)  vetoed a compromise by the Legislature that would have postponed enforcement of the Driving Under the Influence of Electronics (DUIE) Act until 2019.

    Gov. Jay Inslee (D)  surprised even the supporters of a distracted-driving law Tuesday when he accelerated the new crackdown, IN A LETTER TO THE SENATE DATED MAY 16, 2017.

    Gov. Jay Inslee (D) vetoed the section that gave drivers until 2019 to acclimate to the changes and instead declared Sunday, July 23, 2017 as the law’s effective date.

    The final version passed Wednesday pushed the proposed start date from Jan. 1, 2018, to Jan. 1, 2019, because several members wanted extra time for the public to adjust, according to prime sponsor Rep. Jessyn Farrell, D-Seattle.

    Farrell justified the wait on Wednesday, saying colleagues in both parties sought more TIME FOR A SUSTAINED EDUCATION campaign, for the public to adapt, and for motorists to obtain built-in communication systems. The State Patrol is currently understaffed but is striving to boost recruitment, with help from proposed raises this legislative session.

    Understaffed was confirmed yesterday by Kyle at  WSP media center, yesterday.

    Gov. Jay Inslee (D)  His abysmal record on TIME FOR A SUSTAINED EDUCATION speaks for it’s self

    Gov. Jay Inslee (D) IS PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR SIGNING THE VETO. period

    It doesn’t take too much effort to imagine a distracted driver suing WA State over a disputed ticket  for failure of DUE PROCESS ON PUBLIC NOTICE et al. 

     But why would Gov. Jay Inslee (D) worry about a WA State lawsuit?

    After all  Gov. Jay Inslee (D) has  his nationally spotlighted Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson (D) to defend his VETO.

    After all , A law can be unconstitutionally vague in one of two main ways.

    And after all, Vagueness is generally considered to be a DUE PROCESS issue.

    AND, PUBLIC NOTICE IS A DUE PROCESS ISSUE

    THE JOINT RESOLUTION  OF MARCH 3, 1845

    In 1843, an honorable judge knew, such work was very much needed, and indeed  there would be an occasion to investigate the laws of the United States.

    —————————————————————————

    Letter from the Hon. Judge Sprague,

    District Judge of Massachusetts.

    Boston, December 4, 1843.

    My DEAR SIR: I have examined your plan for an edition of the Statutes of the United States at large, and it meets my cordial approbation.”, SUCH A WORK IS VERY MUCH NEEDED, AND MUST BE OF GREAT UTILITY TO ALL WHO MAY HAVE OCCASION TO INVESTIGATE THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES.

     —————————————————————————————–

    THE JOINT RESOLUTION  OF MARCH 3, 1845

    The work will thus become, for all purposes, the PERMANENT NATIONAL EDITION OF THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES; and all future statutes treaties may be printed in the same form, and become consecutive volumes of the NATIONAL CODE……

     By a contract with the government of the United States, the plates from which the work is printed belong to the government, to the extent set forth in THE JOINT RESOLUTION  OF

    MARCH 3, 1845; THUS SECURING TO THE UNITED STATES THE USE OF THE PLATES, TO THE END OF TIME; so that all future editions of the statutes and treaties may be printed in the same manner.

     ———————————————————————————

    THE EDITION OF THE STATUTES OF THE UNITED STATES NOW PRESENTED TO THE PUBLIC COMPREHENDS

    ALL THE PUBLIC ACTS PASSED SINCE THE ORGANIZATION OF THE GOVERNMENT,

    PRECEDED BY (“lead the way; occurred before”) THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, THE ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION, AND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES;

    IN ONE VOLUME, THE PRIVATE ACTS;

    AND IN ONE VOLUME,

    THE TREATIES OF THE UNITED STATES WITH FOREIGN NATIONS AND WITH THE INDIAN TRIBES, WHICH COMPOSE THE WHOLE DIPLOMATIC COLLECTION

    ——————————————–

    The Copious notes of the Decisions of the courts of the United States, which construe,

    comment upon, or apply to the law, treaty, or text, and upon the subjects of the laws,

    which have come under the consideration of the courts, are placed under the acts.

    ———————————————-

    On the margin, or at the foot of the page containing each law, there is a reference

    to the acts passed before or after the law on the same matter.

    The repeal of every law, and its having become obsolete, are also noted. In Notes, the whole legislation on many of the subjects of the laws is fully referred to.

     —————————————————

    The laws are divided so as to comprehend the acts of every session of Congress as a separate statute, designated as the First, Second, or Third statute; with a running title at the head of each page expressing the session of Congress and the date of each chapter or resolve, contained in the page; and each law forms a separate chapter.

    —————————————————

    It will be seen that the acts are inserted in chronological order, but the numbers of the chapters are not consecutive. It was the purpose of the editor to adopt a different arrangement of the chapters,

    BUT THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES HAS DECIDED THAT THE “JOINT RESOLUTION” IMPOSES THE MANNER OF CHAPTERING WHICH HAS BEEN PURSUED.

    THE NUMBERS OF THE CHAPTERS OF THE PRIVATE ACTS, ARE THOSE OF THE OMITTED CHAPTERS IN THE VOLUMES OF THE PUBLIC LAWS.

     —————————————-

    Every volume contains a separate alphabetical index of the matters in the volume, in

    which particular reference is given to the subject of every act; and at the end  of

    the last volume of the Public Laws there is an Index of all the matters in the volumes of the Public Laws.

    ————————————————

    THE VOLUME OF PRIVATE LAWS CONTAINS AN INDEX TO THEIR CONTENTS;

    AND TO THE VOLUME CONTAINING THE TREATIES A FULL AND PARTICULAR INDEX IS GIVEN, IN SUCH A FORM AS THAT AN EASY REFERENCE IS OBTAINED TO EVERY PROVISION IN EVERY TREATY.

    VOL.  I.-(2)

    ——————————————————————————–

    The Government of the United States having sanctioned by its liberal patronage this publication, it is confidently believed, that a full and complete knowledge of the statutes and treaties of the United States, and of the decisions of the courts of the United States, construing the laws, and the subjects to which they relate-the administration of public justice and public and private convenience, will be extensively promoted, and permanently secured by this work.

    1788 Thomas Jefferson to the Commissioners of the Treasury, What is to hinder them from creating a perpetual debt?

    DURING OBAMA’S EIGHT YEARS AS PRESIDENT, HE AND HIS PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRAT’S  ADDED $7,917,000,000,000.00  TRILLION DOLLARS TO THE NATIONAL DEBT.

    Apr 29, 2013 THIS BRIEF DOCUMENTARY SHOULD OPEN A FEW EYES TO THE REALITY BEHIND THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL (AND REAL) CABAL.

    “Can you imagine if the American public knew there was this ‘club’  that  met every month secretly in Switzerland and made decisions that dramatically affected their lives, but we’re not going to tell you about it because it’s too complicated.”

    “THE MONARCHS OF MONEY”  Euro-Banking conspiracy to control the United States currency has been going on  for a very, very long time.

    FIRST,  “Give me control over a nation’s currency, and I care not who makes its laws.” MAYER AMSCHEL ROTHSCHILD  quote exact date unknown (1743-1812)

    ——————————————————————————————

    In 1790 Thomas Jefferson knew, he watched  and he weighed in and argued that the United States needed a publicly-owned central bank so that “EUROPEAN MONARCHS” and aristocrats could not use the printing of money to control the affairs of the new nation.

    1800 Thomas Jefferson  A debt of an hundred millions, growing by USURIOUS interest, and an artificial paper phalanx, overruling the agricultural mass of our country have a PORTENTOUS aspect. (Letter to Samuel Adams, 1800)

    Added for clarity, USURIOUS, charging illegal or exorbitant rates of interest for the use of money: a USURIOUS  moneylender. “PORTENTOUS SIGNS” ominous, warning, premonitory, threatening, menacing, ill-omened, foreboding, inauspicious, unfavorable.

    1816 Thomas Jefferson  I place economy among the first and most important of republican virtues, and public debt as the greatest of the dangers to be feared. (Letter to Governor Plumber, 1816)

    ————————————————————————

    1988 Donald J. Trump, a young American business man, had been  watching for years and weighed in on Oprah Winfred’s 1988 show.

    TRUMP PLACED THE ECONOMY AMONG THE FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES.

    As Thomas Jefferson said,  We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude, If we run into such debts, as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, Our people,  as the people of England are , must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four,

    GIVE THE EARNINGS OF FIFTEEN OF THESE TO THE GOVERNMENT FOR THEIR DEBTS AND DAILY EXPENSES; and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread.  have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account….

    ————————————————————————–

    1788  Thomas Jefferson asked… What is to hinder them (the European Monarchs) from creating a perpetual debt?

    It was just a matter of time and computer technology,  In 1954 it was well recognized by those in positions of authority that it was only a matter of time, only a few decades, before the general public would be able to grasp and upset the cradle of power, for the very elements of the new silent weapon TECHNOLOGY WERE AS ACCESSIBLE for a public utopia as they were for providing a private utopia. IT WAS JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THE GENERAL PUBLIC WOULD BE ABLE TO GRASP AND UPSET THE CRADLE OF POWER

    The Old Glory video above is worth 10,000 words

    full unedited text

    My name is Old Glory

    I am the flag of the United States of America
    My name is Old Glory.

    I fly atop the world’s tallest buildings.
    I stand watch in America’s halls of justice.
    I fly majestically over great institutes of learning.
    I stand guard with the greatest military power in the world.
    Look up! And see me!

    I stand for peace, honor, truth, and justice.
    I stand for freedom.
    I am confident . . . I am arrogant.
    I am proud.

    When I am flown with my fellow banners,
    my head is a little higher,
    my colors a little truer.

    I bow to no one.
    I am recognized all over the world.
    I am worshipped.
    I am saluted.
    I am respected.
    I am revered. I am loved.
    And I am feared.

    I have fought every battle of every war for more than 200 years…
    Gettysburg, Shilo, Appomatox, San Juan Hill, the trenches of France,
    the Argonne Forest, Anzio, Rome, the beaches of Normandy,
    the deserts of Africa, the cane fields of the Philippines,
    the rice paddies and jungles of Guam, Okinawa, Japan, Korea, Vietnam,
    and a score of places long forgotten by all but those who were with me.

    I was there!

    I led my soldiers.
    I followed them.
    I watched over them…
    They loved me.

    I was dirty, battle-worn and tired,
    but my soldiers cheered me,
    and I was proud.

    I have been soiled, burned, torn and trampled on the streets of countries
    I have helped set free.
    It does not hurt . . . for I am invincible.
    I have been soiled, burned, torn and trampled on the streets of my country,
    and when it is by those with whom I have served in battle . . . it hurts.
    But I shall overcome . . . for I am strong.

    I have slipped the bonds of Earth
    and stand watch over the uncharted new frontiers of space
    from my vantage point on the moon.

    I have been a silent witness to all of America’s finest hours.
    But my finest hour comes
    when I am torn into strips to be used for bandages
    for my wounded comrades on the field of battle.
    when I fly at half mast to honor my soldiers…
    and when I lie in the trembling arms
    of a grieving mother at the graveside of her fallen son.

    I am proud.
    My name is Old Glory.
    Dear God . . . Long may I wave!

     The U.S. National Anthem

    “The Star Spangled Banner”, was ordered played at military and naval occasions by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916, but was not designated the national anthem by an Act of Congress until 1931.

    The words were written in 1814 by Francis Scott Key, who had been inspired by the sight of the American flag still flying over Fort McHenry after a night of heavy British bombardment. The text was immediately set to a popular melody of the time, “To Anacreon in Heaven.”

    The National Anthem consists of four verses. On almost every occasion only the first verse is sung.

    HAVE YOU EVER READ ALL FOUR VERSES?

    Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
    What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
    O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
    And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
    Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
    Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

    On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
    Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
    What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
    As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
    Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
    In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
    ‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
    That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,
    A home and a country should leave us no more!
    Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
    No refuge could save the hireling and slave’
    From the terror of flight and the gloom of the grave:
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
    Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
    Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
    Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
    Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
    And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    ————————————————————————-

    “In God we trust.”

    Long may Old Glory wave!

    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

  • June 20, 2017 Clallam County SMP Update

    My public comment

    Vested Clallam County Citizens have been fearful of how the SMP Update will affect their private property use since Jan 26, 2011.

    INDEED, THIS IS NOT ABOUT PROTECTING SHORE LANDS, WETLANDS, ANIMALS OR RIVERS. THIS IS ABOUT CONTROLLING PEOPLE AND THEIR PRIVATE PROPERTY.  I WISH PEOPLE WOULD WAKE UP TO WHAT IS TAKING PLACE IN THIS COUNTRY, STATE AND COUNTY  WITH REGARDS TO CENTRAL GOVERNMENT CONTROLLING LAND AND IMPOSING HEAVY REGULATIONS ON ALL PRIVATE PROPERTY.

    I received a phone call from a concerned (fearful) Clallam County citizen last night.

    “Pearl, have you read the new SMP Update Draft? Do you know how Steve Grey and (ESA Consultant) Margaret Clancy have changed it? Do you know what’s in it?”

    We talked for over an hour. My understanding of the most outrageous concerns.

    There shall be 200 foot setbacks based on a concocted 100 year plan?  Clallam County SMP Update Requirements prior to any permitted use of private shoreline property shall include, but not limited to,  up to $20,000.00 in …….

    www.whatisgeotech.org/

    IT INCLUDES, WITHOUT BEING LIMITED TO, the analysis, design and construction of foundations, slopes, retaining structures, embankments, roadways, tunnels, levees, wharves, landfills and other systems that are made of or are supported by soil or rock. Geotechnical Societies by Country.

    ———————————————————-

    The concerned citizen said, Pearl, what are you going to do about this? You have private shoreline property that will be seriously affected.

    IN CLALLAM COUNTY WA, THERE ARE 3300 VESTED SHORELINE PRIVATE PROPERTY  OWNERS THAT SHALL BE SERIOUSLY AFFECTED BY THE OUTRAGEOUS RESTRICTIONS IMPOSED BY SMP UPDATE, I AM JUST ONE OF THEM.

    THE REAL QUESTION IS WHAT ARE OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

    THEY HAVE VOTERS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THOSE AFFECTED BY THE SMP UPDATE, THAT FEEL VIOLATED BY THE RESTRICTED USE OF THEIR PRIVATE PROPERTY IN CLALLAM COUNTY.

    ———————————————————————–

    INDEED, BUT EVEN MORE TO THE POINT, what business does the government have telling a man whether or not he can plow or not on his own land?  This is not about wetlands and animals or rivers.  This is about controlling people and their property.  I wish people would wake up to what is taking place in this country with regards to central government controlling land and imposing heavy regulations on private property.

    Farmer Faces $2.8 Million Fine for… Plowing His Field! – Freedom …

    May 26, 2017 – A California farmer is facing $2.8 million in fines for plowing his field and planting wheat without a permit. John Duarte of Duarte Nursery is …

    Tim BrownMay 26, 2017

    A California farmer is facing $2.8 million in fines for plowing his field and planting wheat without a permit.

    John Duarte of Duarte Nursery is David going up against Goliath, just like ranchers, farmers and natural health product makers.  His case could set a dangerous precedent that would require farmers to obtain expensive and time-consuming permits from the US Army of Corps Engineers before planting crops.

    “The case is the first time that we’re aware of that says you need to get a (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) permit to plow to grow crops,” said Anthony Francois, a lawyer for the Pacific Legal Foundation. “We’re not going to produce much food under those kinds of regulations.”

    However, U.S. District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller sided with the Army Corps last June, in which the US Attorney’s Office is asking for $2.8 million in civil penalties.

    Why?  Who was harmed?  What real and actual crime took place?

    USA Today has the background of the story that began in 2012 when Mr. Duarte planted wheat on land that he bought with his own money, some 450 acres.

    Because the property has numerous swales and wetlands, Duarte hired a consulting firm to map out areas on the property that were not to be plowed because they were part of the drainage for Coyote and Oat creeks and were considered “waters of the United States.”

    Francois conceded that some of the wetlands were plowed but not significantly damaged. He said the ground was plowed to a depth of 4 to 7 inches.

    The Army Corps did not claim Duarte violated the Endangered Species Act by destroying fairy shrimp or their habitat, Francois said.

    This particular freshwater species is unique to California and southern Oregon and has been classified as a threatened species since 1994 because much of its wetlands in California’s Central Valley were converted to cropland or became urban.

    Duarte’s wheat was planted but not harvested because in February 2013 the Army Corps of Engineers and the California Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board issued orders to stop work at the site. The agencies claimed Duarte had violated the Clean Water Act by not obtaining a permit to discharge dredged or fill material into seasonal wetlands considered waters of the United States.

    Duarte sued the Army Corps and the state, alleging they violated his constitutional right of due process by issuing the cease and desist orders without a hearing. The U.S. Attorney’s Office counter-sued Duarte Nursery tto enforce the Clean Water Act violation.

    Farmers plowing their fields are specifically exempt from the Clean Water Act rules forbidding discharging material into U.S. waters, Francois said.

    The government claims that Duarte did not plow but rather used a ripper, which dug 10 inches into the soil and they allege that it disturbed portions of the property that included wetland areas.

    “Even under the farming exemption, a discharge of dredged or fill material incidental to the farming activities that impairs the flow of the waters of the United States still requires a permit because it changes the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the waters,” the U.S. attorney said in court filings.

    Francois claims the penalties are unfair because his client believed the plowing exemption allowed him to till the soil.

    “A plain reading of the rules says you don’t need a permit to do what he did,” Francois said. “How do you impose a multimillion penalty on someone for thinking the law says what it says?”

    Indeed, but even more to the point, what business does the government have telling a man whether or not he can plow or not on his own land?  This is not about wetlands and animals or rivers.  This is about controlling people and their property.  I wish people would wake up to what is taking place in this country with regards to central government controlling land and imposing heavy regulations on private property.

    ——————

    The bottom line…

    WHAT AM I GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

    Just saying, To Local Elected Representatives..

    Changes are taking place in WA DC.

    Don’t lock yourself up by imposing restricted use on Private Property that you can’t defend and uphold in a court of law.

    Two thirds or more of the SMP Advisory Committee

    VOTED TO WALK  AWAY FROM THE TABLE,

    against my suggestion that we needed an additional August meeting to complete our duty to the citizens and private property owners, as SMP advisors, prior to the final SMP draft proposal being written.

    The SMP Advisory Committee that  represent the 3300 Clallam County shoreline private property owners is approximately as follows.

    1/3 = 10 private interest groups

    1/3 = 10 paid government employees

    1/3 = 10 SMP Affected taxpaying private property owners (only 8 at this meeting)

    DOES THE MAKEUP OF THIS COMMITTEE EXPLAINS WHY?

    THEY VOTED TO WALK  AWAY FROM THE TABLE

    LEAVING 19 OR MORE PROPOSED SMP DRAFT ISSUES RELATED TO THE DOE SMP TAKING OF PRIVATE PROPERTY without argument, suggestions or comment?

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

    The written text related to the undecipherable table below

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

    ————————————————————————

    (2) DISCUSSED AND QUESTIONED? NOT ADDRESSED

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

    ——————————————————————-

    (3) PRESENTED NOT DISCUSSED

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

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

    SOME MASTER PROGRAM POLICIES MAY NOT BE FULLY ATTAINABLE BY REGULATORY MEANS DUE TO THE CONSTITUTIONAL AND OTHER LEGAL LIMITATIONS ON THE REGULATION OF PRIVATE PROPERTY. THE POLICIES MAY BE PURSUED BY OTHER MEANS AS PROVIDED IN RCW 90.58.240.

    SOME DEVELOPMENT REQUIRES A SHORELINE PERMIT PRIOR TO CONSTRUCTION.

     A LOCAL GOVERNMENT EVALUATES A PERMIT APPLICATION WITH RESPECT TO THE SHORELINE MASTER PROGRAM POLICIES AND REGULATIONS AND APPROVES A PERMIT ONLY AFTER DETERMINING THAT THE DEVELOPMENT CONFORMS TO THEM. EXCEPT

    WHERE SPECIFICALLY PROVIDED IN STATUTE, THE REGULATIONS APPLY TO ALL USES AND DEVELOPMENT WITHIN SHORELINE JURISDICTION, WHETHER OR NOT A SHORELINE PERMIT IS REQUIRED, AND ARE IMPLEMENTED THROUGH AN ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESS ESTABLISHED BY LOCAL GOVERNMENT PURSUANT TO RCW 90.58.050 and 90.58.140 AND ENFORCEMENT PURSUANT TO RCW

    90.58.210 through 90.58.230.

    If any of you read this complete comment? You understand fully, why I am critical of the two thirds majority of the Advisory Committees that failed to complete their responsibility to the citizens and private property owners of Clallam County on July 10, 2012,  prior to the final SMP Draft Proposal.

    INDEED, THE INTENT OF A PARTY CAN BE DETERMINED BY EXAMINING THE UNDERSTANDING OF A REASONABLE PERSON, AFTER CONSIDERATION IS GIVEN TO ALL RELEVANT CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE CASE INCLUDING THE NEGOTIATIONS, ANY PRACTICES THE PARTIES HAVE ESTABLISHED BETWEEN THEMSELVES, USAGES AND ANY SUBSEQUENT CONDUCT OF THE PARTIES.

    IF THE PARTIES DON’T WANT YOU TO DO IT, THE PARTIES WILL MAKE IT AS DIFFICULT AS POSSIBLE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO FINANCIALLY IMPOSSIBLE.

    The County Department of Community Development (DCD) has just released a Revised SMP Draft (June 2017).
