Tractor Supply Co. Yelm opening set: January 29 –
Now more than ever, support our locally owned businesses

– Another large box-type discount store to open January 29th in Yelm
Now more than ever is the time to support our locally owned businesses!

Tractor Supply Co. announced their Yelm store will open on Friday, January 29th at 10616 Bald Hill Road SE.
Hours will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays.
This location is a 21,000-square-foot store employing about 15 staff.
They sell products for livestock, pets, plus stock tools, hardware, light truck equipment, work clothing and more.
The Tennessee-based Tractor Supply Co. also recently opened their Olympia store in the former K-Mart structure.

– Editor’s Note:
While the Yelm Community Blog welcomes Tractor Supply to Yelm, remember to support our locally owned business instead of the Big Box Store from back East. We want to see our locally owned business thrive and do well. They provide a unique fabric of our community because the owners live and invest here. Having them gives us choice and options.

Support our LOCALLY-OWNED businesses instead of the large box-store based back east:
– Yelm Farm and Pet
– J & I Power Equipment
– Mountain Lumber
– Sunbirds

My wife and I have committed to procuring our rural products from these fine locally-owned businesses. Regardless of lower prices at the large “box-type” store, we appreciate the fine, friendly service, their hustle-factor and knowing our dollars go back into our community so our friends and neighbors can grow their businesses here.

Yelm Council’s Agenda tonight requires Councilors asking questions

Public Safety Building housing Council Chambers, Yelm

The Yelm City Council Agenda Agenda for this evening has several items that require thorough questions from the Councilors prior to approving.

From the City of Yelm City Council Agenda:
* Yelm Chamber Contract for Services 2016 – From the Staff Report
“The City Council agreed to continue funding for the Yelm Area Chamber of Commerce for the tourism-related services they provide to the Yelm residents and businesses.
[includes] research and prepare tourist-related materials promoting the City of Yelm; produce the 2016 map; organize, sponsor, administer and advertise community events that draw attendees from outside the Yelm area, such as Yelm Prairie Days and the Home and Garden Show, and provide space for a display and information booth at various events at the CITY’S request.”

Editor’s Note:
With the shift in focus of the Yelm Chamber of Commerce to more supporting local businesses, as thoroughly outlined in Chamber Forums and the current Nisqually Valley News, the City Council needs a detailed report from the Yelm Chamber on exactly how the city’s annual $7,500 contribution will be expended in tourism-related services, rather than just the usual, annual approval without discussion. I was told by a Chamber official last summer that the Chamber is no longer involved in administering Prairie Days. We have seen little from the Chamber supporting tourism to Yelm, such as these examples: a tie-in with the county’s Agritourism and Bountiful Byway routes, and this summer’s coming Nisqually Tribe’s Paddle to Nisqually event, The Triad Theater’s unique programs that draw visitors to Yelm, or a Yelm Farmer’s Market promotion to southern Pierce and Thurston County towns.
After much discussion at the last session, the Council authorized $6,600 to obtain a long-overdue additional, yet used undercover patrol vehicle for the Police Dept.
Shouldn’t a $7,500 expenditure for producing a Chamber map to promote tourism be thoroughly investigated as well? That’s the value of another police vehicle!

* More money requested for the Community Center
Why is this costing so much more than the original plans?
Was it because Mr. Harding became the acting Projects Manager and acting City Administrator when the city lost these two key and valuable employees during crucial phases of city projects, like the Community Center?
A worthy question since, as discussed here previously, Mayor Harding does not have the training, experience, expertise, or the authority to be the acting Projects Manager and acting City Administrator.
While the Yelm Community Center now requires the Council to authorize $284,000 to complete, with the construction budget including $141,931 of unspent expenditure authority, Mr. Harding’s sides-stepping the issue of the construction delays was, at the very least, troubling. This was underscored in a high-profile, front-page story in this week’s Nisqually Valley News:
“The contractor took longer to complete the project than expected. Yelm Mayor Ron Harding wouldn’t comment on why exactly the contractor experienced delays.
‘I won’t comment on what’s going on with the contractor, but they took longer than the original contract,’ he said.”

Editor’s note:
That sounds like Mayor Harding’s usual “Doublespeak” where the city may be at fault here.

The Yelm City Council needs to ask some in-depth questions tonight for the benefit of their constituents.

They erected a tripod over a section of track, locked themselves to it, and blocked the path of a mile-long, refinery-bound oil train for eight hours,” by Valerie Schloredt, Yes! Magazine.

Yelm Community School Levy and Bond ballots in the mail –
Consider voting YES!

With the ballots in the mail, most voters will have received theirs early this week.
The Yelm Community Schools (YCS) Construction Bond and Replacement Levy are the two items on the ballot, which are required to properly provide facilities and staff for our area children to have the foundation for a proper education.
* The Construction Bond is designed to fund facilities to relieve several of Yelm Community Schools overcrowded and out-of-date campuses.
* The Replacement Levy is to renew the current/expiring 2-year Levy, which funds operations: maintenance of facilities, transportation, custodial services, para educator salaries, curriculum and special education.
Won’t you consider voting YES!

“Yelm, Olympia schools seek construction money to alleviate growing pains”
Excellent report filed by Lisa Pemberton, The Olympian.
Read more

From Yelm Community Schools (YCS):
Why does the school district need a construction bond election now?
Growth: Since our 2003 bond was passed, enrollment has grown by over 850. A study funded by the state forecasts we will grow by another 900 students by 2019. In response to our rapid growth, we have added portable classrooms and bathrooms throughout the district, converted computer labs and stages to classrooms, and made boundary changes; but we are running out of options. New legislation requiring smaller class sizes will only add to the problem.

Safety: Security needs have changed dramatically since many of our schools were built. Security features such as cameras, fences, and visitor management systems along with upgraded fire and water systems that are necessary in today’s educational environment.

Low interest rates and a competitive construction market will help make this investment in schools more affordable. The projects selected will generate the maximum state assistance funds, stretching our local dollars further. The longer we wait, the more serious the deterioration and more costly to repair or replace in the future.

Why are we running a replacement levy?
The current levy expires in December 2016. In order to maintain the level of education and services provided to students and families, a renewal of the levy is needed. The replacement levy request is not an increase and continues to be below the allowable levy ceiling set by state statute. Yelm Community Schools runs the levy every four years in alignment with surrounding school districts to save money on election costs.

* “Support schools: Vote yes for Feb. 9 levies”
By The Olympian Editorial Board
“Eight school districts across Thurston County are depending on voters to approve property tax levies”
“Lawmakers’ work on school funding reform won’t eliminate need for levies any time soon”
“Without property tax support districts could need to reduce staffing in future school years”

Griffin: 4-year, $9.15 million maintenance and operations levy. Some of that is used to send high school-age kids from the K-8 district to neighboring districts. Homeowner cost: $2.19-$2.33 per $1,000 of assessed property each year through 2020.

North Thurston: 4-year, $163.5 million M&O levy. Homeowner cost: $3.57-$3.66 per $1,000 of assessed property through 2020.

Olympia: 4-year, $106.8 million M&O levy. Homeowner cost: $3.06-$3.12 per $1,000 of property each year through 2020.

Rainier: 4-year, $6.76 million M&O levy. Homeowner cost: $3.66-$3.77 per $1,000 of property each year through 2020.

Rochester: 4-year, $16.3 million M&O levy. Homeowner cost: $3.89 per $1,000 through 2020. Passage would qualify the district for nearly $1 million more in state levy equalization funds due to the low tax base.

Tenino: 4-year, about $12.14 million M&O. Homeowner cost: $3.23-$3.32 per $1,000 each year through 2020. Passage would qualify the district for roughly $250,000 in state levy equalization funds.

Tumwater: 4-year, $64.96 million M&O levy. Homeowner cost: $3.35-$3.45 per $1,000 each year through 2020.

Yelm: 4-year, $45.9 million M&O levy. Homeowner cost: $3.94-$4.01 per $1,000 each year through 2020. Passage qualifies the district for about $3 million in levy equalization funds.

JZ Knight’s 2008 compelling byline on climate change even more pertinent now –
Winter Storm Jonas one for the record books

JZ Knight
Copyright © 2016 JZ Knight.
Used with permission

Yelm’s JZ Knight penned a byline in 2008 describing the effects of global warming.
JZ Knight was prophetic in 2008 of the impending threat to America’s East Coast and Northern Europe from the shift in ocean currents caused by the melting Arctic and Greenland ice cover.
Knight described what was then-happening on the belt of the Atlantic Ocean’s “thermohaline pump,” which drives both temperature and salinity of the water. This pump powers up the continuous flow of the world’s ocean currents. The effects of global warming have diminished the fragile balance of this pump to a then-low 49-percent capacity. Knight questioned what would happen to North America and Europe if the Gulf Stream ceased altogether.
We’re reminded today how prophetic she was with the most severe winter and summer storm records occurring in recent years.

Winter Storm Jonas breaks major records on America’s East Coast
“Winter Storm Jonas has moved out to sea, putting an end to the heavy snow that impacted the East Coast as well as parts of the South and Ohio Valley.

At least fourteen people have died in the storm, which has dumped more than 30 inches of snow on parts of five states and brought wind gusts as high as 85 mph along the Atlantic coast. Several major cities reported over 2 feet of snow and many all-time snowfall records have been broken.

Below is a roundup of top reported snow and ice totals and high wind gusts associated with Winter Storm Jonas,” by Nick Wiltgen and Quincy Vagell and Chris Dolce, weather.com.

“Massive blizzard paralyzes New York and Washington, 19 dead”
“Millions of residents, business owners and workers began digging out on Sunday from a massive blizzard that brought Washington, New York and other northeastern U.S. cities to a standstill, killing at least 19 people in several states.

The storm was the second-biggest in New York City history, with 26.8 inches (68 cm) by midnight Saturday, just shy of the record 26.9 inches set in 2006, the National Weather Service said,” quoting Barbara Goldberg and Idrees Ali, Reuters.

“In Greenland, a Climate Change Mystery With Clues Written in Water and Stone”
“The effects of climate change are starting to make themselves clear just about everywhere, but nowhere more dramatically than Greenland. The giant island holds the world’s second largest ice sheet, and it’s melting fast—an average of 287 billion metric tons of ice a year.

Global warming is the big culprit, but scientists aren’t so sure about a lot of the details. And they need to be, to help figure what might be ahead for the rest of us as melting ice leads to sea level rise and big changes in the oceans,” by Ari Daniel PRI’s The World.
Read more

JZ Knight’s byline published in August 2008, is even more relevant today.
The following is an excerpt:

Humanity has caused global warming, and day by day the dangers are growing into a planetary emergency. Our polar icecaps are melting at alarming rates. Sea levels are rising. Mountain glaciers, which provide us with our drinking water, are melting. Mountain snowcaps are disappearing. We have record heat waves, hurricanes, typhoons, and droughts. Some landmasses are sinking, and rivers and lakes are disappearing. Of recent concern is the momentum of the world’s ocean currents all linked together in a loop called the global ocean conveyor belt, in which the Gulf Stream of warm water flows to the East Coast of America and then merges with the deep cold-water currents from the northern Arctic waters. Scientists describe this belt as a giant “thermohaline pump” because it is driven by both temperature and salinity of the water. This pump powers up the continuous flow of the world’s ocean currents. At present, the effects of global warming have diminished the fragile balance of this pump to a low 49-percent capacity. What would happen to Europe if it ceased altogether? Would an ice sheet covering most of Northern America and Europe appear overnight? Would this be a new ice age? Scientists are worried because it has happened before. Research oceanographer, Dr. Ruth Curry, is very concerned because of the rapid ice melting in Greenland where the cold fresh water flows into the adjacent conveyor belt, essentially overwhelming its delicate balance. The recent decline of the belt’s momentum to 49-percent is due to Greenland’s meltdown. Scientists have determined that in the remote past this shut the system down, leading to an ice age. Are we ready for that to happen again?

– Knight provided the path to the future by asking the key question:
Can we change our immediate future?

Yes, but we will have to change the way we live…
The policies of our governments must change as well. We can unleash our minds toward a new genius of innovative technologies and energy solutions that repeal the effects of global warming. The task is daunting, but it does begin with each one of us.

You could find new and innovative ways to energize your home and workplace. If you can’t afford a new hybrid car, ride a bicycle or walk. Learn to grow your own food, beginning with your vegetables. Plow up your lawns planted with flowers and plant food. Empty your flower pots on your patios and plant tomatoes, potatoes, squash, and herbs, as an example, and fertilize them organically. Remember, industrial fertilizer contains toxins that make their way into the ecosystems and into the potable water supplies. Eat less meat, unless you raise it yourself. Don’t drink water from soft plastic disposable containers but drink from reusable glass containers. Learn to filter your water. Don’t buy products packaged in plastic. Don’t fill your groceries into plastic bags. Bring your own earth-friendly material bags and deposit your groceries in them. Turn your lights off when not in use. Plant trees everywhere. Put many live plants in your home and office space, as they remove the carbon from the air and release clean oxygen. Store enough food, water, medical supplies, and clothing — especially warm clothing — for two years. If you live by the oceans, rethink you and your family’s vulnerability living next to the water and consider moving to higher ground. If you can drill a well for water, do so and test it for purity. These are wise considerations for improving your life as well as your family’s life that Ramtha prophetically gave us more than twenty years ago, as you will see in this book. They are necessary changes that will improve your sense of security and preparedness. These changes are, in essence, an investment into a future security that will help you advance and avoid an impending calamity….

We are not without the resources of will, inspiration, and a desire to dispense with the greed that placed us on the precipice. We can choose to either tether into an abyss or have a second chance of moving onward to a brighter future. It’s up to us — no kidding and no hype!

A brief history of the Coverdale case –
Is Coverdale’s vengeance in a simple contract case a misuse of our Courts?

Virginia Coverdale sued in Thurston County Superior Court
Photo by Scott Roberts/Freedom Foundation in the Nisqually Valley News.

Has defendant Coverdale thumbed her nose at the Courts to postpone paying her debts?
Coverdale keeps appealing her case as a defendant and filing her own lawsuits, which places her over $700,000 owed in the Court-imposed fees plus interest in postponement. A letter-writer to The Olympian responded to Coverdale’s story several years ago that while having no affinity to JZ Knight and RSE, Coverdale would lose, for putting aside the emotional and political noise, this was a simple case of a contract violation, and that she was already in arrears at $225,000 at that time and was recommended to cease this then.
That writer WAS correct.

Editor’s Note:
Interesting that the Nisqually Valley News (NVN) has reported for over three years in front-page headlines the case of JZK, Inc. vs. Coverdale, yet the decision this week by the Washington Appeals Court was relegated to obscurity on page A-8 today, while the newspaper boldly headlines with inaccuracies an Archdiocese of Seattle letter about area-resident Dr. Miceal Ledwith, previously covered here.

November 1, 2012: JZK, Inc. v. Virginia Coverdale, et al filed in Thurston County Superior Court
Coverdale accused of violating two signed Conditions of Participation contracts in disseminating propriety school property: videos and materials.

December 8, 2012, former Nisqually Valley News Publisher/Editor Keven Graves said in his Op-Ed:
“JZ Knight lawsuit is a story we will keep covering”

January 22, 2016: “Coverdale Loses Appeal Against JZ Knight’s Company” is buried on page A-8:
That Graves’ successor buried this story today in favor of a salacious headline story filled with inaccuracies, is also a travesty. The NVN would not have too difficult a time to quote JZ Knight from her own website in the ruling on this case.

Coverdale was joined by many with political and/or emotional motives.
This lists those entangled in her case who also lost in the Courts or settled with JZK, Inc.:

including and not limited to the Freedom Foundation, Glen Morgan, David McCarthy, Enlighten Me Free, Melissa Genson, Pastor Jeff Adams, Coverdale’s former Olympia attorney Shawn Newman, former Yelm attorney Breckan Scott, former co-counsel and Washington Bar Association president Anthony Gipe, and now high-profile, current Seattle attorney Stephen Pidgeon.
