Inslee releases salmon recovery proposals
Gov. Jay Inslee announced his salmon recovery proposals for the 2022 legislative session, which will bolster Washington's leadership in protecting and restoring salmon across the state.
The governor put forward a $187 million investment in a salmon strategy that will:
Ever spend too much time contemplating truly menial issues? Like, why does the fridge have a "d" in it while the refrigerator doesn't, or how we went from throwing tea overboard to allowing massive taxation?
Well, here is one to add to this list; why do adults always doubt the existence of Santa in Christmas movies yet are not shocked by their children's gifts that no one bought them?
It's great. The entire movie they doubt Santa's existence, yet they don't even question the brand-new bicycle parked next to the tree Christmas morning; though it's a hilarious oversight, it does make one wonder what we are overlooking as a society today. For instance, the parent that is so busy working to provide for them that they have missed their children growing up, or the individual pushing so hard to make it to the top that they've forgotten why.
The Toledo New Life Assembly church has a new pastor starting in January. Frank Corbin has been selected to lead the church in the new year. He has been a pastor for many years and he is bringing his years of experience to Toledo. You will find that Frank is a very kind man, which is needed in these times.
Pastor Corbin was raised in Cathlamet, Washington and that is where he decided to be a pastor, he stated, "I was raised in Cathlamet Assembly under the ministries of Pastor Gene Ross and Pastor Larry Bentz. I received my calling as a teenager while attending youth camp at Mayfield Lake Youth Camp. I determined at 18 years of age that while in Navy boot camp that I would begin my adult life journey serving the Lord and I have; in ministry and in secular work."
TOKELAND - On December 16, Shoalwater Bay Casino General Manager Johnny Winokur delivered 200 toys to the South Beach Regional Fire Authority's Grayland Station for their Annual Saturday with Santa toy giveaway. The delivery was the culmination of a two-week toy drive hosted by the casino which provided free play to guests who donated toys.
Just in time for Christmas, local anglers will be happy to hear that four Pacific County lakes have been stocked with Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) hatchery adult steelhead, averaging 7 pounds each. The four lakes that fishermen can reel in steelhead are Case's Pond, Black Lake, Western Lake and Snag Lake. And, the Humptulips staff planted 100 adult steelhead into Duck Lake in Grays Harbor. Also, 544 jumbo trout were planted into Cases Pond in late November.
"With the December high flows and conservation-minded fishing restrictions, this approach gives anglers a second chance to harvest these hatchery adults," WDFW Communications Manager Eryn Crouch told the Herald.
"WDFW hatchery crews implanted a blue tag in the back of these fish to help fishery managers measure success and angler effort, informing future fisheries," Crouch added. "If you catch one of these tagged adults, please call the number listed on the tag."
