    WA STATE DEPT. OF 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 (PUBLIC RECORDS ACT) COSTS

    Chapter 173-03 WAC Public Records

    Incorporates changes made by Emergency Rule- WAC 173-03-9000E

    Overview

    Introduction

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

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

    Why it matters

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 The rule also contains outdated information about Ecology programs and staff, which will be made current and will reflect changes made in the 2017 legislative session.

    Scope of rule development

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

    Process of development

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    WAC 173-03-050

    What records are retained and how are they indexed?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    (c) A description of the public records requested;

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

    (a) Providing the record;

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

    (c) Denying the public record request.

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

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

    WAC 173-03-070

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

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

    What happens when the department denies a public records request?

    When the department refuses, in whole or part, a request for inspection of any public record, it must include a statement of the specific exemption authorizing the refusal and a brief explanation of how the exemption applies to the record withheld.

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

    (1) Any person who objects to the refusal of a request for a public record may petition for prompt review of that decision by submitting a written request for review. The written request shall specifically refer to the written statement by the public records officer or designee which constituted or accompanied the refusal.

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

    Find Designated Uses for Waters of the State

    SHALL WE HAVE A CONFLICT OF INTEREST BETWEEN THE LAW AND THE DOE RULE?

    (RCW 90.58.020) Shoreline Master Programs (SMPs)

    There are three basic policy areas to the Act: shoreline use, environmental protection and public access. The Act emphasizes accommodation of appropriate uses that require a shoreline location, protection of shoreline environmental resources and protection of the public’s right to access and use the shorelines

    Public access: Master programs must include a public access element making provisions for public access to publicly owned areas, and a recreational element for the preservation and enlargement of recreational opportunities.

    The overarching policy is that “the public’s opportunity to enjoy the physical and aesthetic qualities of natural shorelines of the state shall be preserved to the greatest extent feasible consistent with the overall best interest of the state and the people generally. “Alterations of the natural conditions of the shorelines of the state, in those limited instances when authorized, shall be given priority for…development that will provide an opportunity for substantial numbers of people to enjoy the shorelines of the state.”

    SHALL WE THE CITIZENS BE ALLOWED TO WALK ON THE SHORELINE BUT NOT TAKE RECREATION  IN THE WATER?

    Designated uses have sometimes been called “BENEFICIAL USES” and include public water supply, protection for fish, shellfish, and wildlife,

    AS WELL AS RECREATIONAL

    agricultural, industrial, navigational and aesthetic purposes. Water quality criteria designed to protect the designated uses and are used to assess the general health of Washington surface waters and set permit limits. Marine and fresh waters have designated uses assigned in a “use-based” format, where individual waterbodies are assigned individual uses.

    To find the designated uses for marine waterbodies refer to WAC 173-201A-610 and 612. For marine aquatic life uses see map (PDF). For marine criteria refer to WAC 173-201A-210, 240, and 260.

    Finding designated uses and criteria for rivers and streams is slightly more complex because of the large number of salmonid species and their complex freshwater spawning cycles.

    To find the designated use(s) for rivers and streams refer to WAC 173-201A-600 and 602 (Table 602) of the water quality standards.

    Table 602 is an extensive listing of waterbodies and the uses assigned to those waterbodies. Section 600 outlines default uses for those waterbodies not specifically named in Table 602.

    CONSPIRACY EXPOSED” The notarized document “Conspiracy Exposed” was written on OCT. 8, 1992 by George C. Rains Sr. when he was 77 years old.

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

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

    It’s a good read from a historical standpoint and a cautionary statement to the citizens of Clallam County. Could this happen to Clallam Country by imminent domain, isolation, regulation, restriction and/or economic starvation?

    Ceremony marks change of name to Daniel J. Evans Wilderness

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

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

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

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

    The public is invited to the dedication ceremony.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • WA State NO Preparation for Nuclear Attack?

    RCW 38.52.010 Definitions.

     RCW 38.52.030, was passed into law in 1983

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

    ————————————————————————–

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

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

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

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

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

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

    MAY 23, 2017 State Representative Dick Muri

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

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

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

    —————————————————————————————–

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

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

    As Representative Dick Muri pointed out….

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

    ———————————————————————

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Representative Dick Muri (cont.)

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

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

    ————————————-

    My request, Please consider our school children

    ————————————

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

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

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

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

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

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

     May 2, 2017 MEET BOB FERGUSON WA State Attorney General…

    JULY 14, 2017 Perhaps by now, you’ve already heard of him?

     In the space of a few days, WA State Attorney General Bob Ferguson, a Democrat just beginning his second term, has gone from unknown state attorney general in the far corner of the country to making national headlines.. Fergeson’s quote  I wouldn’t have filed it if I didn’t think I was going to win; after appealing a federal case before a  9th circuit court judge and winning a stay.

    ———————————————————

    May 2, 2017 MEET BOB FERGUSON

    Now a toast of the progressive community, Ferguson views the law as a profoundly moral enterprise.

    FERGUSON IS A REMARKABLY HUMBLE, PRIVATE MAN….

    HE SAID, “WHEN I RAN FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL IN 2012, I WOULD TELL PEOPLE I BELIEVE THE OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL TO BE THE MOST CONSEQUENTIAL POSITION IN GOVERNMENT”

    SOME WOULD SAY THAT FERGUSON IS OBSESSIVE:

    BOB FERGUSON SAID, “After the shock [of Trump’s election victory] wore off,” the attorney general said, speaking by phone from the state capital of Olympia. “I WANTED MY OFFICE TO BE READY IN CASE PRESIDENT TRUMP ATTEMPTED TO DELIVER ON SOME OF HIS CAMPAIGN PROMISES……

    ( LOL JULY 14, 2017)

    ———————————–

    As a school kid, Ferguson would frequently neglect to do his homework so he could spend more time on the game.

    When the order  was unveiled, WA STATE  DEMOCRAT  Attorney General Bob Ferguson  was meeting with other Democratic state attorneys general in Fort Lauderdale, discussing likely challenges they would face from the Trump administration on immigration law, civil rights, environmental regulations, and other key policy areas.

    SOME WOULD SAY THAT FERGUSON IS OBSESSIVE:

    Within minutes of the order being signed, Ferguson’s team—including an expanded civil-rights division, which he had prepared over the past several months for just such a moment, and which had been in contact with Democratic attorneys general nationwide to work out how to respond to such actions—

    “The reason I went to law school is because when used in the right way, the law can have a profound impact on people in really personal ways.”

     So, In the space of a few days, WA State Attorney General Bob Ferguson, a Democrat just beginning his second term, has gone from unknown state attorney general in the far corner of the country to making national headlines.

    9th U.S. Circuit Court  Judge James L. Robart, 69,  blocked President Trumps temporary immigration ban and the … decision – later upheld by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals –

    VENGEANCE IS MINE SAITH WA STATE VOTERS COME ELECTION TIME


  • 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 …….

    Geotechnical Engineering

    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.

    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.

    George C. Rains Estate

    Concerned Member SMP Advisory Committee

    At the July 10, 2012 SMP Committee Advisory meeting

    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.

    ———————————————————————

    (4) PRESENTED- DISCUSSED but NOT ADDRESSED

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

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

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

    The sanctuary jurisdictions are listed below. These cities, counties, and states have laws, ordinances, regulations, resolutions, policies, or other practices that obstruct immigration enforcement and shield criminals from ICE — either by refusing to or prohibiting agencies from complying with ICE detainers, imposing unreasonable conditions on detainer acceptance, denying ICE access to interview incarcerated aliens, or otherwise impeding communication or information exchanges between their personnel and federal immigration officers.

    A detainer is the primary tool used by ICE to gain custody of criminal aliens for deportation. It is a notice to another law enforcement agency that ICE intends to assume custody of an alien and includes information on the alien’s previous criminal history, immigration violations, and potential threat to public safety or security.

    The Center’s last map update reflected listings in an ICE report published on March 20, 2017.

    THE ICE REPORT… link above….

    ENFORCEMENT AND REMOVAL OPERATIONS Weekly Declined Detainer Outcome Report  For Recorded Declined Detainers Jan. 28 – Feb. 3, 2017

    Summary

    Pursuant to section 9(b) of Executive Order 13768, Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States, and section H of the Secretary of Homeland Security’s subsequent implementation memo,

    Enforcement of the Immigration Laws to Serve the National Interest, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is making available for public release the non-Federal jurisdictions that release aliens from their custody, notwithstanding that such aliens are subject to a detainer or similar request for

    custody issued by ICE to that jurisdiction.

    For instances of such release, the report also includes the associated individual’s citizenship, detainer issued and declined dates, and notable criminal activity.

    ICE compiled this report based on jurisdictions with detainers that were recorded as declined

    between January 28, 2017, and February 3, 2017, regardless of detainer issuance date

    It should be noted that law enforcement agencies (LEA) do not generally advise ICE of when a detainer is not honored, and therefore this report represents declined detainers that ICE personnel have become aware of during their enforcement activities.

    This report is comprised of four sections:

    • Section I:

    Highest Volume of Detainers Issued to Non-Cooperative Jurisdictions

    between January 28, 2017, and February 3, 2017

    • Section I

    I: Jurisdictions with Recorded Declined Detainers Broken Down by Individuals Released

    between January 28, 2017, and February 3, 2017

    • Section III:

    Table of Jurisdictions that have Enacted Policies which Limit Cooperation with ICE

    • Section IV: Report Scope and Data Fidelity
