Peninsula Briefs: Aerial spraying planned in Jefferson County

PORT HADLOCK — Jefferson County forest landowners and managers will be applying herbicides on their property by helicopter in the coming weeks.

Exact dates have not been set and spraying is subject to weather conditions.

Herbicides being used are Oust, Accord, Arsenal, Escort, Garlon4, Chopper and Transline.

They will be used in various combinations and surfactants will be added to increase spray efficiency.

Wetlands and streams will be buffered so herbicides will not contact surface water, Jefferson County Conservation District officials said.

Maps of the spray areas are posted at the Conservation District office, 205 W. Pattison St., Port Hadlock, and the county commissioners office at the Jefferson County Courthouse, 1820 Jefferson St., Port Townsend.

Questions may be directed to Bryan Schultz at Olympic Resource Management 360-297-0570 Ext. 26 or to the Conservation District Office at 360-385-4105.

Questions referred

PORT TOWNSEND — City Council candidates who ask for briefings from city department heads will have to go through the City Manager's Office.

City Manager David Timmons implemented a policy requiring departments to refer all requests to him.

“I ask that all requests for discussion or meetings be coordinated through the City Manager's Office so staff is made available on a fair and consistent basis equally to all candidates,” Timmons wrote in a memo to staff.

Candidates will be referred to Administrative Assistant Peach Stebbins at 360-379-5047.

Stebbins will arrange appointments.

Workshop planned

SEQUIM — Annette Lindamood, a holistic nurse with a master's degree in development psychology, will lead a one-day workshop, Introduction to Imagery; Techniques for Healthful Living, on Friday.

The session will be from 9 a.m. to noon at Chrysalis, 360 W. Bell St.

Guided imagery is used to improve concentration, memory, reduce stress and stimulate healing.

To register, call Chrysalis at 360-681-0302; a donation of $35 suggested.
