  • Travis Couture for WA Senate - Tourism, Economic Development and the Environment

    Travis Couture outlines environmental issues within Washington's 35th District which includes parts of the Olympic Peninsula, Hood Canal and South Puget Sound (South Kitsap, North Thurston, and Mason Counties). Washington is the only state in the US that has zero state funding for tourism. It was cut completely during the economic downturn, now it's up to local businesses. My opponent as county commissioner cut funding to Mason County's 20 beautiful parks by $600k ($1.2 million total including matching federal grant funds lost) to pay down the Belfair sewer debt. He has even proposed a similar plan to take the Mason County lodging tax, which is the only fund for promoting county fairs and festivals, and using it to pay for county expenses. We need to make tourism more of a priority, not less.

  • Johns Creek Salmon near Shelton, WA

    Chum Salmon are returning to Johns Creek near Shelton this month to spawn. Although there are concerns about what effect the nearby "Powerline Two" fire may have on the water quality of the stream, the fish appear to be returning in good numbers.

    Mason County PUD No. 3's Johns Prairie operations center is located just south of the creek. Joel Myer, PUD 3 public information & government relations manager takes us along for a look at the fishy happenings:



    PUD 3, the Port of Shelton and City of Shelton joined forces to construct a water main to Johns Prairie from the city's system.

    The water main addresses two major issues in the area. It will reduce and avert withdrawals from the Johns Creek aquifer, protecting stream flows and critical salmon habitat. It will also address domestic water and fire flow requirements for commercial and residential development in the industrially zoned area of the Shelton Urban Growth Area.

    Construction of the water main also supported construction of the new PUD operations center.

  • Deception Pass Bridge - Whidbey Island - Washington State

    Deception Pass Bridge is the only bridge to the island and it is simply an icon for local residents.

    Mysterious coves, rugged cliffs, jaw-dropping sunsets and a stomach-dropping high bridge make this area so attractive for local and international travelers.

    The bridge, one of the scenic wonders of the Pacific Northwest, is actually two spans, one over Canoe Pass to the north, and another over Deception Pass to the south. Construction began in August 1934, and the completed bridge was dedicated at noon on July 31, 1935. The Wallace Bridge and Structural Co. of Seattle, Washington provided 460 tons of steel for the 511-foot Canoe Pass arch and 1130 tons for the 976-foot Deception Pass span. The cost of construction was $482,000.

    In 1982, the bridge was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

    It cost more to paint the spans in 1983 than it did to build them in 1935. They were painted again in 1997.
