Mosquito issue requires spraying in South Bend

South Bend City Council met for their regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, September 23, at 5:30 p.m. at South Bend City Hall.

During the public comment portion of the meeting, South Bend resident Joseph Stepp addressed the council regarding motorists who do not use their signal when exiting Highway 101 on to Water St.

"I've almost [been] hit a couple of times," Stepp said. "I thought I'd bring it up before something does happen and someone gets hurt."
Mayor Julie Struck responded to Stepp's concerns, saying "the only thing we can do is just watch for it."

South Bend Police Chief Dave Eastham responded by saying, "The guys that are doing that, 98% of them are local. We'll write one or two of them some tickets and they'll start spreading the rumor."

Locals fear decrease in future salmon returns - Forks Creek Hatchery fish ladder is presently closed

The Forks Creek Hatchery is presently under a large construction project, and local fishers and retailers are concerned about whether or not it will be collecting fish this year. Losing a spawning season would result in lower future salmon returns which, in turn, would affect the local commercial fishing industry, sports fishing, and the local retail economy. The effects on the local retailers would be losses in the sales of fuel, gear, groceries, restaurants, and such.

New DNR simulation shows catastrophic CSZ tsunami impact on the coastline

The Washington State Department of Natural Resources released an updated tsunami simulation model on Tuesday, August 27. The model shows the potential scenario if a Cascadia Subduction Zone quake were to erupt. The updated information has provided both state and local agencies along with residents on the coastline a glimpse of what to expect.

Minutes expected to matter

The new model shows that should a CSZ quake strike off the coastline the Long Beach Peninsula would have a 15-20 minute window before a large caliber tsunami would strike the area. Areas such as Tokeland would be in the same window of time but further into the valley, those near Bay Center may have up to 45 minutes. Raymond and South Bend both are anticipated to have approximately 60-90 minutes before being impacted.

Poised to make an investment
