Video message from your Sheriff

We’re all shocked and saddened every time – all too frequently – that we hear one more news story about the dysfunction between local law enforcement, and citizens in the communities they serve.

Unincorporated Jefferson County is a community of just over 20,000 people. There’s no reason for all of us not to know each other well, especially to know the public officials we ourselves elected, and to understand each other’s values and intentions.

Sheriff Dave Stanko has been willing to share his values, and impactful events in his personal history. He recently allowed a news reporter to capture on video an emotionally powerful moment that helped to shape his approach to law enforcement. Please take a look at this link and learn some important things about your Sheriff —

http://www.king5.com/mb/news/local/those-things-stay-with-you-says-officer-remembering-his-partners-death/268124112

Soon we’ll be setting up an opportunity for you and everyone in our community to spend some time with Dave Stanko, to learn more about him, and let him learn more about us. More on this in a future Google Group post.

Talk with FEMA and DCD about changes to the Flood Plain map

0Do you own property adjacent to or near the Little or Big Quilcene Rivers, or on a big body of water like Quil Bay or a big lake? If so, you already know the importance of FEMA’s flood plain insurance rate maps. Once adopted, these new maps will show where mortgage lenders may require flood insurance, and where development regulations may apply.
>
>
>
> It’s time for FEMA to update the maps. Changes they make may impact you differently than prior mapping. FEMA and Jeff County DCD (along with Port Townsend’s development dept) will be discussing the map changes tomorrow evening – Tuesday July 12 – from 6 to 8pm at the Quilcene School. Everyone is invited to attend. This is both interesting and very relevant to property owners near a river or a shoreline. You’ll be able to ask questions specifically about your own property, as well as about the flood plain mapping process generally.

REMINDERS AND UPDATES FROM CVAR

This Saturday – CVAR’s summer open house!
>
> Please join us this Saturday, 7-11, at our Summer Open House at the ranch. We will have snacks and beverages and quite a few silent auctions (with some really fantastic gifts!) and raffles. There will be CVAR Volunteer Baked Goods to raffle/auction to the lucky ducks who win. Chair massages by Catherine Herrick and henna tattoos by Sophia will be fun events along with tours of the ranch. Jean Wyatt, our OH poster artist from Sequim, will be in residence with cards and original art work. The Open House runs from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, at 11900 Center Rd. in Quilcene. Come out and see all the wonderful animals CVAR cares for!
>
>
>
> Up-date on the animals from Gardiner!
>
> All the animals recently seized in Gardiner by JC Animal Control are doing much better now at CVAR. We have the 7 Anatolian Shepherd puppies, 2 injured AS adult dogs, 17 chickens and 8 goats from the seizure. The puppies were very scared and it appeared the animals hadn’t been handled before. They had a body score of 1-3 out of 9 (9 is fat and 1 is emaciated). They have doubled their weight already. They went from just laying there, lethargic and scared, to now playing and interacting with each other and us. The adult dogs were not thin and have shown no aggression. They are also doing much better and I expect will make a full recovery and be adoptable dogs. They really want to be sweet.
>
>
>
> The goats are also doing well now, some are very skinny and probably pregnant but we expect they too, will make a full recovery. There were two new born kids as well and they are now bouncing around playing and having fun.
>
>
>
> The chickens are mostly looking better but they will take a while to regain their health as some are very sick. We hope we are able to save all of them. Many are very skinny and all were covered in mud and feces.
>
>
>
> We have a great crew of Volunteers here working with the animals every day. It is amazing what a little TLC can do! We could use more help with daily volunteers. E-mail our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer to offer your help.

> New rescue on July 4th!
>
> Sara and Robert interrupted their family BBQ on the 4th for an urgent call from Clallam Co. Animal Control regarding a llama with a broken leg in Joyce. They hooked up their horse trailer and rushed to the scene where the mama llama was laying down with her baby standing next to her. Another llama was on the other side of the fence. All of the llamas were injured and a neighbor reported hearing 4 gun shots that morning. Sara was able to sedate and give pain medications to the mom and baby and then loaded them into the trailer, but the male took off, limping quickly into the woods. He was never caught.
>
> Continued
>
>
>
> Back at CVAR and after clipping the llamas and cleaning the wounds it was apparent that the wounds were gunshot wounds. The baby llama had been shot in each hind leg. The mama llama had been shot through her front leg. Sara had a specialist out to the ranch the next day who took x-rays and determined that the mama’s leg could not be fixed. She had to be put down. Her poor baby will be OK but really misses his mom. CVAR has neighbors at the Joyce site who are keeping an eye out for the last llama and will call Sara if anyone can corral him.
>
>
>
> These are the last of the llamas who were on the cover of CVAR’s last Newsletter. We have tried a number of times to catch them with no success since there is no fencing on the property and the llamas were simply running free. There is now an on-going investigation and we hope the shooter is found and brought to justice.
>
>
>
> The medical care in the first 24 hours was over $600.00 and if the male is caught we don’t know yet what injuries we will need to take care of with him.
>
>
>
> CVAR could use your help with monetary donations to help cover the medical costs and general care for all of our animals. Send donations to CVAR, 11900 Center Rd., Quilcene, WA 98376. CVAR is open Fri., Sat. & Sun., from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. Donations can also be made through our website: www.centervalleyanimalrescue.org
