by Pearl Rains-Hewitt

Posted 5/2/103

Clallam County $$$ Prospectus

Apr 10, 2013 – Clallam County, WA Unemployment Rate is at 11.20%

What is the FUTURE of Clallam County?
———————————————-

THE “MYTH” OF CLALLAM COUNTY INCREASED TOURISM

When GAS and FERRY cost is OVER $100.00 for two people to JUST cross Puget Sound?
PLUS THE COST OF A MOTEL?
PLUS THE COST OF GAS TO DRIVE AROUND THE PENINSULA?
PLUS THE COST OF FOOD?
—————————————————————–

When, the Olympic National Park and WA State Parks have $$$$$$ PRICED themselves out of the TOURIST INDUSTRY on Public Land ACCESS AND USE.

What is the Federal and State rational ON PUBLIC ACCESS TO PUBLIC LAND?

PARKS THAT WERE CREATED FOR THE FULL USE AND ENJOYMENT OF WE THE PEOPLE?

They charge EXHORBITANT FEES, TO GET IN, TO PARK, TO HIKE, TO SWIM, FOR LODGING, CAMPSITES, EXTRA VEHICLES, restrict usage, NO BONFIRES, NO HORSES, TIE UP YOUR DOG, ETC.

CLOSING TRAILS WITHOUT NOTIFICATION, CLOSING RIVERS TO FISHING..

They have literally created thousands of USE RULES and set extremely low PEOPLE QUOTAS for 922,000 thousand acres of ONP public land.
They have TICKETED and fined Hundreds of people for failure to DISPLAY Discover PASSES. AND

WHERE THE ONLY PLACE LOCAL PEOPLE CAN AFFORD TO CAMP IS IN THEIR OWN BACKYARD?
———————————————————-

THE Clallam County increased TOURISM MYTH
IS A widely held but MISTAKEN belief,
IT IS Something that is fictitious or NONEXISTENT, but whose existence is widely believed in.
IT IS A set of idealized or glamorized ideas and stories surrounding a particular phenomenon or CONCEPT.
————————————————————
WITH SUSTAINABLE TOURISM A THING OF THE PAST

WHAT Shall Clallam County Sustain itself on?
WITH A TAX BASIS OF 17%?
Jazz in the restricted OLYMPICS?
An IRRIGATION FESTIVAL with the water in PIPES?
The LAVENDER FESTIVAL?
THE JUAN DE FUCA FESTIVAL?
THE TIMBER SHIPPED OVERSEAS?
THE SALE OF UNIMPROVED WATERFRONT PROPERTY?
THE SALE OF DUNGENESS WATER RULED PROPERTY?
FURLOUGH DAYS BY COUNTY EMPLOYEES?
GRANTS TO THE COUNTY FROM THE STATE AND NON-PROFITS?
AND AN Unemployment Rate OF 11.20%?

—————————————————————————————————–

ALWAYS THREATEN AND PUNISH “WE THE PEOPLE” FIRST

DON’T LOG IT, and create jobs and income, LET IT Burn. De-fund Forest fire Protection. Ban Wood burning for wood stoves. (PAHS CAPS)

LET THE “WE’S WHO WANT” GUT the WA State general fund for Park wildlife programs. Let the LOBBYIST, using terms like, cherry pick, pork, TO BE sure THEY get their piece of the GAS TAX INCREASE.

PAY OUT $1.5 BILLION to replace TRIBAL FISH CULVERTS, WHILE OUR WA STATE ROADS crumble.

TAKE “THE PEOPLE’S WATER” to avoid the THREAT of Tribal Lawsuits

And, let our WA STATE GAS TAX DOLLARS, $48 MILLION be used to “STUDY” GUARDRAILS

And, let our STATE TAX DOLLARS subsidize transit systems so a city can spend $300,000.00 OF IT on ART WORK.

Spend our TAX DOLLARS to create more WETLANDS, West Nile Virus AND trespass on our property.

——————————————————————–

What is the FUTURE of Clallam County?

“We THE PEOPLE” OF CLALLAM COUNTY are being financially devastated by the WA State Appointed DOE with the Shoreline Update and the WRIA 18 Dungeness Water Rule. Our property value is being TAKEN by regulation.

Our Federal and WA State representatives DO NOT RESPOND to this financial crisis in CLALLAM COUNTY.
