We are pleased to welcome Gavin McIlvenna, former Assistant Sergeant of the Society of the Honor Guard, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (www.tombguard.org) and current President of the Society.

LECTURE: Washington at War: The Evergreen State in WWI
Sunday, November 12 | 2 p.m.

One-hundred years ago in 1917, the US entered The Great War to fight alongside European allies. But Washington’s homefront experience began long before the country entered the war, and continued afterward. Join historian Lorraine McConaghy for an illustrated introduction to the war’s themes and an opportunity to participate in a “Readers’ Theater.” We’ll read aloud together a script featuring newspaper accounts, diaries, writings, speeches and correspondence of the era, as well as McConaghy’s extensive research focused on the war’s impact on Washington — collectively a fascinating lens into immigration, wartime industrialization, women’s rights, social change, radical labor, epidemic disease and worldwide turmoil.

Presented by Humanities Washington and the Washington State Historical Society in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of America’s involvement in World War I.

6. You, First

If you are interested in pursuing personal growth, does this necessarily mean you are a selfish person? Today, let’s look at how personal growth affects relationships.

There is no question about it. We need to have a caring relationship with ourselves before we can expect others to do so. However, being interested in personal growth doesn’t mean you’re selfish. In fact, it’s quite the contrary.

In his book, “The Psychology of Romantic Love,” Nathaniel Brandon wrote, “The first affair we must consummate successfully is the love affair with ourselves. Only then are we ready for other love relationships.” In other words, if we don’t even like ourselves, it’s going to be difficult to love others.

You see, no matter how concerned we are about others, we are ultimately responsible only for ourselves. If we feel inadequate and victimized, then we have no power to offer another person security and strength. Without that firm personal foundation, we are building our relationships on what amounts to quicksand.

Self-development means being the best you can be and giving the best that you can give. It means asking yourself, “If I were living with me, would I want to stay around?” Yes, that’s a big question, one that demands an answer. Then, you change what you need to change according to that answer you have given yourself. And you don’t need to make a big deal about it.

You see, although there are tremendous personal benefits to self-development, it is, perhaps, in your relationships with others that a commitment to personal growth will bring you the most gratifying changes – and a deeper sense of happiness and contentment. ~The Pacific Institute

8. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Awards Hatchery Operations Contract

American flag2PORTLAND, OR – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded a $6.2 million contract to Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to operate and maintain the Bonneville Fish Hatchery, on the Columbia River. The firm-fixed contract is for one year, with two consecutive option years, if exercised, in-order-to produce fall Chinook to aid in mitigation obligations for The Dalles and John Day dams.

In the contract, the Corps will furnish the hatchery facility, including all land, buildings, most structures and permanently fixed equipment. ODFW will provide all personnel, tools, materials, vehicles, abatement pond, supervision and other items and services necessary to operate and maintain the hatchery.

“We’ve had contracts or cooperative agreements with ODFW for many years and expect that they will continue to provide juvenile chinook that meets expectations for our John Day Mitigation responsibilities,” said Tammy Mackey, Portland District Fish Section chief.

Earlier this year, the Corps awarded contracts to ODFW to operate four Willamette Valley hatcheries and the Cole M. Rivers hatchery in the Rogue River Basin. Those contracts went into effect Sept. 1, and include services such as fish production and release, marking and tagging of fish, and fish health services.

Further details of the contract are at www.fbo.gov/index?s=opportunity&mode=form&id=d6b4f2c7a0054128ec704e516f089bec&tab=core&_cview=1.

Portland District relies on varied operational approaches, including spill, turbine improvements, surface passage, bypass and fish transportation systems, to address the impacts on fish populations from hydroelectric projects (along with habitat, hatcheries and harvest–commonly referred to as the ‘All H’s’) for an effective fish restoration strategy.
