Environmental attorney, former Navy commander seek Washington public lands post By Phuong Le Associated Press Reddit SEATTLE Washingtons next public lands commissioner will be expected to preserve forests, water and habitat in the face of more intense wildfires and a changing climate, while also ensuring revenues from logging, land leases and other operations for school construction and other projects. Democrat Hilary Franz, an environmental attorney, and Republican Steve McLaughlin, a retired Navy commander, are running next month to lead Washingtons largest firefighting force and manage 5.6 million acres of state-owned lands. McLaughlin, 60, who served in the Navy for 25 years, said he supports increasing timber harvests and opening more state lands to recreational opportunities, such as horseback riding, hunting and off-road vehicles. The jobs primary duty is to distribute state trust money for school construction and other projects, he said. I believe that healthy working forests are the key to funding our schools, and timber is the key to funding our schools, said McLaughlin, who is married and lives in Seabeck. Were harvesting way below what we can be without damaging anything. I want to see those harvest levels increase because it increases revenues, it creates jobs, it reduces fire hazards and it improves water quality. Franz, 46, who is executive director of the statewide advocacy group Futurewise, said timber harvests are part of the solution. But she also believes the department should look at other ways to maximize revenue from state lands, such as leasing it for wind or solar power or other economic development. I believe that we have a responsibility to fund our schools. I believe public lands are critical to making sure that happens, said Franz, who is married and lives in Seattle. http://jackfordhub.boxcrack.net/2016/10/23/new-challenges-for-fundamental-aspects-in-interview-body-language/Im committed to making sure that we are leveraging our public lands in a way that provides a stronger funding source for our schools and that diversifies our funding source. Franz said she would put an expert in economic development and natural resources in each regional office to identify investments needed in those communities.

The rise of the Ku Klux Klan in Colorado in the early 1920s had a negative effect on Dearfield, as well. O.T. Jackson lost his job as governor’s messenger when the Klan-backed Clarence Morley was elected governor in 1924. In a 2008 interview for the Greeley Tribune, University of Northern Colorado history professor Mike Welsh said that the KKK never outwardly terrorized Dearfield residents; there were no Klan rallies or cross burnings, just a “lingering hostility.” Several years of drought and the ensuing Great Depression lead to the demise of most of the all-black communities on the Plains, including Dearfield. During the Depression, whites denied credit to blacks. With no rain to grow the crops and no money to buy seed, most of Dearfield’s residents lost hope and moved to the Five Points area of Denver. Over the next 10 years, O. T. Jackson tried in vain to revive his dream community.
