Mark Nichols: the Washington, D.C. Connection

Mark Nichols, candidate for Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney, has raised more campaign cash from the Washington, D.C. area than from Clallam County.  Out of Nichols' top 55 donors, 53 of them are from outside the Olympic Peninsula.  Mark Nichols said:

“I’ll take support from any source that does not create a conflict of interest.” 

It may not be a conflict of interest, but who in Washington, D.C. could possibly care about a local election 3,000 miles away?

Meeting in Forks over Navy's Electronic Warfare Program

Next Tuesday there will be a meeting in the Forks High School commons from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. to discuss the Navy's proposed electronic warfare program.  The meeting is being organized by the Forks Chamber of Commerce.  Lissy Andros, chamber executive director, said:

“This is a meeting for the Navy, Forest Service and the community.  We asked that the comment period be extended to Oct. 31, and I am hoping that would be the case.”

The Navy admits that exposure to this electromagnetic radiation for fifteen minutes or more could cause damage to the liquid tissue of the eyes, but they are taking measures to make it safe.

Great.  If it's so safe, they don't they just do their electronic warfare program on the Navy base; perhaps at the Officers' Club.
