Tom Santos

Tom Santos (shown here with Sue Forde)

Tom Santos passed on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27, 2014.  Not only a lifelong active Republican, but a wonderful election worker for many, many years.  He was a wonderful man and friend to many of us.

A man of many talents, Tom was an avid hunter, an accomplished gardener and an enthusiastic rock hound who taught himself gem cutting and, as a member of Northwest Federation of Mineralogical Societies, won many awards.When Tom was growing up his father always told him to “give back.” When he and Zita moved to Sequim, he started doing just that.

2013 Year End Report to District I Citizens

Clallam County Commissioner Jim McEntire (R)

Clallam County Commissioner Jim McEntire

My sincerest hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas season!  I’m a little tardy with this 2013 report because I injured two fingers in January and am just now getting back my typing speed.

Carlsborg wastewater system:  proceeds at a quickening pace.  I expect we’ll be ready to solicit bids for construction within this year.  The cost numbers are settling as I expected, and contain no surprises.  Budgeted sums are sufficient and I had long thought, it is very much more cost effective to move effluent to Sequim for treatment at the City sewage plant.  Wastewater utility costs for those in the Carlsborg urban growth area will be reasonable.  Common sense has won the day in this instance, and I’m glad of it.

Trey Gowdy questions media about Benghazi reporting

The news media is supposed to report, ask questions and find answers. They did not do that about the Benghazi raid, where four Americans were killed; instead, repeating only what the White House said. Here, U. S. Rep. Gowdy gets in their face about their lack of reporting to the American public.  Click here to view the video.

 “The Declaration and the Constitution”

Hillsdale College offers FREE classes on the Constitution.  Here’s one:
In this first lecture from the “Introduction to the Constitution” series, Hillsdale College President Larry P. Arnn argues that the American republic’s meaning and proper method of operation is found in two documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. He introduces the two main principles of the Declaration–Nature and Equality–and explains how they are key to understanding the arrangements of government found in the Constitution.Watch this Lecture

 Tax Freedom Day

Millions of Americans will settle accounts with Uncle Sam on April 15th, unaware that they are still working for the government. Our nation’s Tax Freedom Day 2013 is April 18th, five days later than last year.    

   In the state of Washington, the news was even worse: Tax Freedom Day doesn’t arrive for us until April 25th.

How does Washington rank? Ninth highest taxpayer out of the fifty states.

An interesting perspective…

News media would have the country believe that this past general election was a “mandate”.  But, was it?  For an interesting perspective, take a look at the election returns BY COUNTY: (Blue=Dem; Red = GOP) (Click on map for larger view)

Pretty interesting, isn’t it? (from Maps of the 2012 US presidential election results)

Your water rights may be affected – read on…

A newly formed organization, Olympic Resource Protection Council, is currently raising funds for a lawsuit against the Dept. of Ecology’s new water rules – which extremely limit what a household can use in the way of water, and in some areas, no new water will be “allowed”.  See their website at:

UPDATE – Dec. 2012:  The “Rule” was passed and went into effect on Jan. 2, 2013.  Marguerite Glover wrote an op/ed about the issue, which helps to see how people will be adversely affected:  New “Water ‘Management’ Rule” by WA State Dept. of Ecology a “travesty

A current issue concerns metering of wells and water “rules” by the State Department of Ecology.  Marguerite Glover has been involved with the water issues in the Sequim-Dungeness area for many years, and has set up a website to help educate folks about the matter.  Click here – and get up-to-speed with what is happening in this area.

A postcard was mailed out to residents in the Sequim area, which bears repeating.  It states:

“The Washington Department of Ecology’s Dungeness Water Rule, being proposed in May 2012 and taking effect in August 2012, may affect you as a property owner. Washington REALTORS and the  Sequìm  Association of REALTORS want to keep you informed.

Development of vacant land will be subject to the rule, even parcels  purchased or subdivided years ago. The rule prohibits new water rights and  exempt wells unless mitigation is purchased, and requires metering and reporting of new water uses. The rule will also impact wells that are already drilled if water from the well has not yet been used For domestic purposes.


Existing private wells may be subject to the new rule, if the uses of the well  are modified to add additional residences or new types of water use at  existing residences.


Will require determination by the County of whether the project complies with the Washington Department of Ecology’ water rule before a building permit can be approved.

“Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state lives at the expense of everyone.” ~Frederic Bastiat
