Sally Paulsen was remembered by the community, family & friends in a ceremony and potluck at Yelm Park, Saturday, June 11, 2011 from 5-7pm. While there was an editorial in the newspaper omitting key facts and garnering several responses, no representative from the Nisqually Valley News was present to witness and report on the beautiful remembrances shared by Paulsen’s family, co-workers, friends and neighbors, which would have provided at the very least, some color to a story the newspaper says they sought to report (to provide the community with Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment food storage practices in light of Paulsen’s death).
Representatives from the FAA and the PASS Union (Professional Aviation Safety Specialists) where Paulsen worked, came to Yelm to share about their experiences of a Yelm-area resident’s participation on a tech-team that kept the computer equipment up and running for the Air Traffic Control (ATC) at the Seattle ATC Center. Sally was described in her passion for “workplace justice, employee rights, and just plain common sense against the knee-jerk decisions of management and lack of adherence to the collective bargaining agreement.”
