YELM AREA NEWS – AN UPDATE

1. “Port invests in Bucoda, Yelm projects”
Rolf Boone of The Olympian reports:
“The Port of Olympia economic development corporation will invest in Bucoda and Yelm projects as part of a new pilot program to invest in the county’s small cities and towns to stimulate economic development.

The port will invest … $10,000 to repair, expand and enhance the City of Yelm’s Mosman Corridor. A portion of those funds will be used for a preliminary engineering report on the corridor project.”

2. “More in Thurston, Pierce counties file for bankruptcy”
Rolf Boone of The Olympian reports:
“South Sound personal and business bankruptcy filings continued an upward trend in the first quarter of the year, rising in both Thurston and Pierce counties, according to data compiled by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Washington…

The increase in filings continues a trend that both counties experienced last year. Thurston County bankruptcy filings rose 10 percent in 2010; Pierce County filings rose 13 percent.

In the first quarter, Thurston County filings rose 16 percent to 349 from 300 in the same period last year…

Unemployment, under-employment and people struggling with their mortgages still are some of the main factors contributing to the decision to file for bankruptcy protection, Patton said…

Total bankruptcy filings in Western Washington rose 2.34 percent to 6,592 in the first quarter from 6,441 in the first quarter of 2010.”

3. “WA preps for July shutdown as budget talks stall”
Mike Baker reports in The Olympian:
“Top officials in Washington state started preparing Monday [May 16] for a potential government shutdown in July as lawmakers stalled in their bid to reach a budget compromise.

Gov. Chris Gregoire said she has started holding talks with cabinet and financial management leaders about what would happen if there’s no spending plan by the time a new budget cycle begins in July. She’s seen little progress in budget negotiations in the Legislature and can’t recall a time that things have been so bogged down.”

YELM COUPLE’S DEATHS “MIGHT BE… MURDER-SUICIDE”

Jeremy Pawloski of the The Olympian is reporting:
“The Thurston County Sheriffs Office is investigating whether an 81-year-old Yelm man committed a murder-suicide by giving his wife a toxic chemical cocktail in their home before drinking it himself…

Anthony Fetter and his 81-year-old wife, Keiko, were found dead May 9 at their home in the 14000 block of 129th Lane Southeast in Yelm…

Keiko Fetter ‘had very accelerated dementia and was not able to speak in full sentences’ according to an affidavit written by Thurston County Sheriffs Detective Cameron Simpers affidavit. ‘She had difficulty walking and caring for herself. Keiko had been hospitalized recently due to complications. She was released to her husband, with the assumption that he would care for her at the residence with the assistance of an in-home caregiver.'”

As reported here May 17 quoting a KIRO-TV-7 News report:
“A Yelm couple found dead in their home Monday [May 9] committed suicide by consuming a cocktail of chemicals, the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office said Friday [May 13].

‘This is the first chemical suicide that we’ve encountered'” said Lt. Greg Elwin with the Sheriff’s Office.

The chemicals sickened deputies who first responded to the scene and entered the house to investigate.

‘The mixture that goes into these suicide cocktails is clearly fatal and certainly hazardous to first responders,’ Elwin said.”

Megan Hanson of the Nisqually Valley News is reporting:
“Contrary to some media and blog reports, police have not determined the cause of death for a Yelm couple found dead in their home last week.

‘We are investigating it as a suicide,’ said Thurston County Sheriff spokesman Greg Elwin.

‘Thats the best plausible explanation’

‘Thats how were looking at it’

However, an official determination cannot be made until two sets of results come back.”

Ed. Note:
Ms. Hanson’s report is incorrect where she states:
“Contrary to some media and blog reports, police have not determined the cause of death for a Yelm couple found dead in their home last week.”

Ms. Hanson should do more than a cursory read to see the media and this blog listed direct quotes from Thurston County Sheriff spokesman Greg Elwin.
NO ONE has ever said the cause of death was determined, other than what a reader might infer from quotes by the Thurston County Sheriff’s office.

Instead, Hanson should have stated Sheriff spokesman Greg Elwin’s report to the media was premature:
‘This is the first chemical suicide that we’ve encountered'” said Lt. Greg Elwin with the Sheriff’s Office.
She does a disservice to her readers with such pablum.

POLITICAL BOUNDARIES TO CHANGE –
YELM MAY MOVE FROM LD 2

“Washingtons political boundaries must change as a result of the once-a-decade remapping effort that adjusts for population shifts detected by the U.S. Census, and the public side of the job is just getting started.

The Washington State Redistricting Commission will hold the first of 17 meetings around the state this week including a Wednesday evening public forum in Olympia at the Cherberg Building, next door to the Capitol…

Legislative districts face similar makeovers. The fastest growing legislative district was the 2nd, which runs from Rainier and Yelm in Thurston County to McKenna, Roy, Graham, and Eatonville in Pierce County. That Republican-to-libertarian-flavored area grew by 36 percent and now has 26,471 people more than the target of 137,236.

As it is redrawn to shed voters and shrinks in geographic size, it might be pulled entirely out of southeast Thurston County,” quoting the Tacoma News Tribune.

This area’s redistricting public forum is scheduled this evening at the following location:
* Olympia: Wednesday, May 18, John A. Cherberg Building, 304 15th Ave., Senate Hearing Room 1

The forum begins at 6 p.m. with an open house and presentations. Public comment will be heard from 7 to 9 p.m.

TVW, the states non-profit public affairs television network, will webcast the forum so that anyone in the area may participate. Instructions for webcast participation will be available on the Redistricting Commission website before the forum begins.

KIRO-TV 7: “Police: Yelm Deaths Were ‘Chemical Suicide'”

KIRO-TV 7 News in Seattle reports:
“A Yelm couple found dead in their home Monday [May 9] committed suicide by consuming a cocktail of chemicals, the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office said Friday [May 13].

‘This is the first chemical suicide that we’ve encountered,’ said Lt. Greg Elwin with the Sheriff’s Office.

The chemicals sickened deputies who first responded to the scene and entered the house to investigate.

‘The mixture that goes into these suicide cocktails is clearly fatal and certainly hazardous to first responders,’ Elwin said.

‘These suicide cocktails’ was apparently a reference to the fact that they’re not uncommon. KIRO 7 South Sound Bureau Chief Richard Thompson found reports of cases across the country and worldwide.”

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO OUR NEIGHBORS – AND COMMUNITY?

YELM CITY COUNCIL CONTINUES TO VIOLATE THEIR OWN MORATORIUM

On April 26, 2011, the Yelm City Council adopted Resolution 523 “findings of fact and conclusions of law supporting Ordinance 935 establishing a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries”.
Read more from KOMO-TV 4 News.

While I have no issue with Resolution 523, this action violates the City Council’s own Moratorium on Moratoriums imposed in April, 2005. Two weeks ago, I wrote to the city requesting all documents that the April, 2005 moratorium was overturned or rescinded. I received an official response from the City of Yelm that none could be found. One then would have to assume this moratorium is still in effect.
Therefore, no moratoriums can be issued by the City Council.

On April 13, 2005 (YES, in 2005) the Yelm City Council heard from two citizens suggesting the city put a moratorium on approving permits, so growth here could be planned in balance with resources (water, roads, groundwater runoff, sewage, etc.). Immediately, Council member Isom bristled at these citizens, putting forth a no moratorium resolution. The Council’s Minutes of April 13, 2005 state:
“MOTION BY BOB ISOM, SECONDED BY JOE BAKER THAT NO MORATORIAMS (sic) BE IMPOSED AND THAT THE ISSUE NOT BE BROUGHT BEFORE COUNCIL AGAIN. CARRIED.”

Listen to Mr. Isom and then-Mayor Adam Rivas in their own words from the April 13, 2005 City Council audio record:

This Moratorium has never been changed nor rescinded.
THERE REMAINS IN EFFECT A MORATORIUM THAT NO MORATORIUM BE ON THE YELM CITY COUNCIL’S AGENDA!
WHY DOES THE YELM CITY COUNCIL NOT FOLLOW THEIR OWN RULES?
