    A # 1 bestselling book by Charles Krauthammer.
    “Things That Matter”, his working title started as, “There’s More To Life Than Politics”
    A quotation from Keats, “Beauty is truth, truth beauty— that is all/ Ye need to know on earth, and all ye need to know”.
    “Turns out, we need to know one more thing on earth- politics”
    “In the end, everything must bow to the sovereignty of politics”

    My comment…
    With BILLIONS being spent? It is unbelievable that conservative political advisers have, and conservative candidates are using the following defunding agenda in an attempt to WIN the 2016 presidential election?
    REALLY? and, A GROUP OF MORE THAN 30 REPUBLICANS???
    Shutting down the government is a fool’s errand.
    If you want the BLAME, play the shutdown game AGAIN.
    Even if a conservative wins the primary election on this defunding agenda..
    In the long run? WOMEN HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE
    More women vote than men.
    Women will VOTE to protect their TRUSTED affordable healthcare and their constitutional rights provided by Planned Parenthood.

    FEDERAL LAW SINCE 1993 “THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH REVITALIZATION ACT” of 1993 103rd Congress (1993-1994) legalized fetal tissue research. In addition, fetal tissue can be sold at a price that allows an organization to recoup the costs associated with it.

    In addition, my opinion is that without supporting compromise of the Skagit River Basin water issue while promoting the sale of five million gallons of water per day to Tethys Enterprises for a beverage bottling plant, the City of Anacortes–which represents its citizens–is a lousy neighbor.

    ANACORTES, Wash Will Not Be Home To Enormous Bottling Plant

    Tethys had planned to build the largest beverage bottling plant in the country.

    Some opponents even claimed Tethys was just a front for companies like Coca-Cola or Nestle to come in.

    The city signed a deal three years ago to sell 5 million gallons of Skagit River water a day for the next 50 years to a company called Tethys.

    AP News
    ANACORTES, Wash. – Plans to build a controversial water bottling plant in Anacortes are unraveling because the company planning the project has backed out.
    KUOW reports the city signed a deal three years ago to sell 5 million gallons of Skagit River water a day for the next 50 years to a company called Tethys.
    The proposal attracted debate in the community.
    Some residents feared the company would transfer its water rights to a larger company like Coca-Cola or Nestle and that it wouldn’t create jobs.
    Tethys had planned to build the largest beverage bottling plant in the country.
    One city council member, who opposed the water bottling project, says he wants to make sure the city does not transfer the water rights to another company.
    But Anacortes Mayor Dean Maxwell says deal is dead.

    More Information
    The Background
    the Anacortes City council saw this as a business decision and function of the city’s water utility and was not subject to public comment. The study session is the first public meeting on the proposal, and no public comment is accepted.

    Residents cite a lack of transparency in proceedings

    citizens questioned the legality of reviewing a petition to review a urban growth area change without a project-specific plan.

    The county’s legal council notes in a memo that the commissioners should review project-specific components of the proposal, such as impacts to water resources and traffic.

    City of Anacortes Press Release
    Posted: Wednesday, September 11, 2013 8:09 am | Updated: 10:23 am, Wed Sep 11, 2013.
    By Mark Stayton
    ANACORTES — Tethys Enterprises has decided to withdraw plans to build a massive bottling plant here, according to a letter from Tethys to the mayor.
    In a press release sent Tuesday afternoon from the city, Mayor Dean Maxwell says Anacortes will continue to look for development and job opportunities.
    The Tethys letter is undated, and it was not clear how long the city has known about the decision. The mayor was unavailable for
    immediate comment Tuesday afternoon.
    The proposal sought to build a 1-million-square-foot bottling facility that could use up to 5 million gallons of water from the city’s 55 million gallon-per-day allotment. The plant was planned to locate south of March Point near the intersection of Stevenson and Reservation roads.
    In 2010, at the first public meeting about the proposal, City Council approved a contract to sell Tethys water through 2050, provided the company find a 30-acre or larger plot located
    within city limits or its growth area that had access to rail lines.
    Since then, the community has been bitterly divided on the proposal at public meetings — pitting concerns about the environment and water resources, as well as questions about the facility and governmental transparency against the need for industry and jobs in the region.
    Maxwell has defended his actions in helping bring the Tethys proposal to Anacortes by saying that the city’s municipal utility has an obligation to provide water to businesses that locate there, and he is head of that utility.
    At a mayor’s candidate forum held in July, Maxwell said the contract was put in place to make sure the company sets up a local manufacturing facility here instead of
    transporting the water elsewhere.
    Maxwell could not be reached for comment Tuesday evening.
    At an Anacortes Chamber of Commerce meeting held last September, Tethys CEO Steve Winter said the facility would employ at least 540 people.
    Maxwell’s press release Tuesday states that finding industry to create jobs remains a priority.
    “The Tethys project was an opportunity for our community to provide living wage jobs, advanced technology, and a continued commitment to environmental sensibility,” he said in the press release. “While Tethys has decided to cease its efforts to locate a foodgrade beverage manufacturing facility in the City, the City will continue to look for other development and job creating opportunities.”
    Maxwell said in his statement that the safeguards in the water agreement, including
    stipulations that the plant be located within city limits or growth area, worked as they were intended.
    Winter’s letter said that while the project has “gained viability” over time, Tethys had a variety of reasons to terminate it. He also said he and his partners have been offered other opportunities elsewhere.
    “Now more than ever there is a need for the sweeping environmental improvements and economic and social benefits our project offers to the beverage industry and our region,” Winter said in the letter. Messages seeking comment from Winter Tuesday afternoon were not returned.
