A look back at some of this week’s top stories:County shocker: Benton tapped for top environmental jobState Sen. Don Benton, R-Vancouver, was tapped Wednesday to become Clark County’s director of environmental services in a surprise and controversial move by Commissioners David Madore and Tom Mielke.The two Republican commissioners’ action came about despite the angry objection of Democratic Commissioner Steve Stuart, who called the action “political cronyism.”Madore and Mielke directed County Administrator Bill Barron to begin the hiring process for Benton, saying it was unlikely a better candidate could be found, and the need to hire quickly required bypassing the county’s typical hiring practices.Barron said after the meeting he would call Benton to offer him the job.Messages left for Benton requesting comment went unreturned as of The Columbian’s press time.After chiding Madore and Mielke for circumventing the hiring process the county typically goes through, Stuart began to pack up his files and put on his suit coat.“I can’t even believe you guys are discussing that,” Stuart said. “This is disgusting. It really is. I’m done for the day. I am so sick. You gotta honor the organization, you gotta actually honor the integrity of the organization and the process to find the right people for the job. If after that process you find that he is the right person, God bless. Then you choose him. And you choose him with pride. But to choose him without even going through a process is diminishing and demeaning to him. It’s demeaning to Don Benton because it smacks of political cronyism that you would appoint him without a process. It is saying that he couldn’t make it through the process on his own accord with his own merits.”As Stuart left the room, Mielke told him, “you are way out of line.” Stuart snapped back: “You guys are out of line.”See continuing coverage here.Keeping track of crime in Clark CountyDo you feel safe on your home turf?

In Vancouver, local officials have said emergency responders aren’t currently prepared to deal with a major disaster that may result from the nation’s largest proposed oil-by-rail operation.Tesoro Corp. and Savage Companies want to build an oil transfer terminal at the Port of Vancouver capable of handling an average of 360,000 barrels of crude per day. The so-called Vancouver Energy terminal would move more oil by train than any single facility in the United States.The city this year sought an independent assessment of the region’s readiness for possible oil spills, explosions or other accidents. The state Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council, now reviewing the Vancouver Energy proposal, ultimately decided to wrap that into an overall environmental assessment of the project.The consultant completing the preparedness review will be Cardno Entrix, an Australia-based company that has done work for Tesoro on other matters.Separately, marine responders have said the $210 million Vancouver Energy facility would require an update of the region’s emergency spill plans on the lower Columbia and Willamette rivers. Responders now plan for a worst-case scenario of 300,000 barrels of oil released into the water; vessels leaving the proposed Vancouver terminal would carry as much as 350,000 barrels of crude at a time.After its review of the proposal, the site evaluation council will make a recommendation to Gov. Jay Inslee, who has final say. The decision could, however, be appealed and wind up in front of the state Supreme Court.
The bill will be introduced during the upcoming legislative session set to convene tomorrow, January 16, in Juneau. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Senator Peter Micciche (R-K-Pen) has introduced a bill for the upcoming legislative session aimed at reducing the number of commercial set net fishers on the east side of the Cook Inlet. Senator Micciche emphasized that this is an introduction to a conversation, and is a ‘voluntary’ fleet reduction: “It’s at no cost to the state- we have discovered national and private funds that would help with it.” The bill also puts forward the question of a ‘commercial set net fishing permit buy-back program’. On March 1, 2019, the commission, and the Department of Natural Resources, will conduct an election among individuals qualified (certain set net fishers) on the question of whether to establish an entry permit buy-back program. Story as aired: Audio PlayerJennifer-on-set-net-bill-1.mp3VmJennifer-on-set-net-bill-1.mp300:00RPd The bill was introduced for the purpose of issuing entry permits and controlling entry into the commercial set net fishery on the east side of Cook Inlet, the commission would establish the area administered on December 31, 2018, as the Eastern Set Net Subdistrict of the Cook Inlet Central District as a distinct administrative area separate from the Cook Inlet Central District. The bill reads- “An Act relating to the powers of the Alaska Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission; requiring certain set net fishers to vote on the question of whether their entry permits shall be subject to a state buy-back program; establishing a buy-back program for certain set net entry permits; providing for the termination of set net site leases held by individuals who participate in the entry permit buy-back program; providing for a condition on future leases of certain state land; and providing for an effective date.” Senate Bill 135, according to Senator Micciche has a max 40% overall reduction. That would bring the ‘east set net fleet’ down to where it was prior to the eastern migration in the 80’s. Senator Micciche: “The numbers that came from back from the set netters polling themselves, were that 79.5% answered ‘yes’ that they would support the concept of a voluntary fleet reduction.” Senator Micciche: “This is a starting point in a conversation that began probably four years ago, when a group of set netters were looking for a solution. A gear reduction in the Cook Inlet, particularly in the east side set net fishery, if it were a win/win for all all would be a healthy outcome.”

PESHAWAR: A Pakistani court on Monday accepted the review petition of Dr Shakeel Afridi, a surgeon who helped America’s CIA track down then al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in 2011, against his over two decades long sentence. A two-member bench of the Peshawar High Court comprising Justice Abdul Shukur and Justice Ejaz Noor accepted Afridi’s review petition, BBC Urdu reported. Also Read – Shahid Afridi joins ‘Kashmir Hour’ in military uniform Advertise With Us Afridi, a 57-year-old former surgeon of Khyber Agency, had run a false vaccination campaign in the Pakistani garrison city of Abbottabad to help the CIA track down Osama, who was then killed in a covert US raid on May 2, 2011.Afridi was arrested from Peshawar later that year. Initially, he was accused of organising a fake immunization campaign for the CIA to confirm the presence of then al-Qaeda chief but later awarded 33 years sentence on multiple charges of anti-state activities, including extending support to militant outfits. Also Read – EAM Jaishankar calls on European Parliament President David Sassoli Advertise With Us His sentence was later reduced to 23 years. Afridi has been engaged in a legal battle since his conviction. His review petition is pending since June 2014. It was filed against the decision of the Frontier Crimes Regulation (FCR) Commissioner, who reduced his conviction from 33 to 23 years. The state appeal against the decision of the FCR Commissioner to cut his 10 years conviction would also be heard by the High Court bench. Advertise With Us After the integration of FATA into Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, Afridi approached the Peshawar High Court. He had been imprisoned at Peshawar jail but was shifted to Adiala jail in Rawalpindi in April 2018. He is currently lodged at the central jail in Sahiwal in Pakistan’s Punjab province under tight security. The US has been asking Pakistan to release Dr Afridi. The issue of Afridi’s release is reportedly one of the major obstacles to the improvement of ties between the US and Pakistan. Soon after the death of Osama, the US media reported that Afridi had contributed to the success of the CIA operation by collecting DNA samples of Osama’s family through the fake vaccination campaign in Abbottabad. The US State Department has previously said that Afridi has been unjustly imprisoned in Pakistan and Washington has clearly communicated its position to Islamabad in his case, both in public and in private.

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton looks at a USA Today newspaper carrying an article about US vice president Mike Pence that he used personal email while in office, during her flight on American Airlines to Laguardia airport in New York City, New York, US on Friday. Reuters photo A photo of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton glancing at a newspaper headline about US vice president Mike Pence using private email has gone viral on social media, with thousands of people commenting on it.Pence and others involved in the Republican presidential campaign last year criticized Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as US Secretary of State.Clinton was on an airplane traveling from Boston to New York on Friday when a fellow passenger snapped a photo of her glancing down at Friday’s USA Today newspaper front page headline “Pence used personal email in office”.Pence’s use of an AOL email account was first reported by the Indianapolis Star on Thursday. It said Pence used the account, which was hacked last summer, at times to discuss sensitive matters and homeland security issues while he was governor of Indiana.Pence said on Friday he had complied with Indiana laws in his use of the email account, and he had an outside attorney review his private email records and archive those related to state business.During the campaign, US President Donald Trump and Pence said Clinton’s use of a private server broke the law and endangered national security – complaints that led their supporters to chant “Lock her up!” at rallies.The State Department’s internal watchdog said Clinton’s use of a private server broke department rules. The FBI reviewed her emails for classified material, but it found that no criminal charges were warranted.

U.S. Housing Tough Enough for Another Rate Hike Share Federal Reserve Housing Market Rate Hike 2016-01-11 Staff Writer in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Government, News January 11, 2016 505 Views Worries that the U.S. housing market may suffer the Fed’s first rate hike in a decade should be put to rest, at least as far as Capital Economics is concerned.On Monday, the international research firm announced that with home purchase mortgage applications reaching a six-year high in December and an improving job sector, the national housing market will be able to withstand the additional 0.25 percent.An important factor in Capital Economics’ confidence is the fact that despite a higher rate, the current rate of .50 percent is still well below the federal rate historically. This melds easily with the fact that unlike much of the past decade, American incomes are in the black as far as mortgages go. Ed Stansfield, editor at Capital Economics, cited figures from the National Association of Realtors showing that the median income household currently has 160 percent of the income necessary to qualify for a mortgage on a median-priced home.The firm’s optimism comes in the wake of a surprise downturn in existing home sales in November and a corresponding increase in December. According to Capital Economics, the November drop is most likely due to the new TILSA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure rule, or TRID, which was launched in October to help loan seekers more broadly compare mortgage lenders and products.Still, while the November dip in existing sales is likely to be a blip, Stansfield said, it is also true that there has been no sustained growth in sales since the middle of last year, a truth that reflects the lack of existing homes for sale.“While rising housing starts have pushed up, the inventory of new homes, the number of existing homes on the market, has not changed since to the start of 2014, when mortgage applications for home purchase were around 30 percent lower,” he said.Stansfield also suggested that December’s rise in mortgage applications might have been encouraged by potential buyers getting their applications in before the expected rate hike in the middle of last month; applications for home purchases initially rose but then waned throughout the month. Nevertheless, he said, “it is encouraging that, taking the month as a whole, applications were at their highest level in almost six years.”Stansfield’s optimism is no lone opinion. Industry pundits and consumer finance firms have roundly accepted the new rate as beneficial, with some such as Bankrate even declaring that the new rate will spark several side benefits, including increased lending and better interest income for seniors.
