Eagles accidentally poisoned near city
At least six bald eagles were found in the Enumclaw area during the past couple of weeks, poisoned and needing medical attention.
The source of the poisoning was determined to be a horse that had been euthanized on a rural property. The horse’s owner had attempted to bury the animal, but equipment failure reportedly delayed the process. While it was exposed, the eagles began feeding on the carcass.
Game Warden Bruce Richards was shuttling the birds to PAWS for treatment and releasing those that had recovered.
The cost to care for each eagle was $140 per week and donations are still being accepted to cover the cost on behalf of PAWS at Country Animal Hospital and City Perk on Cole Street in Enumclaw.
Contributions were also being taken directly through the PAWS Web site, www.paws.org. PAWS is a tax-exempt organization and contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
This is Part 2 of a three part in-paper Enumclaw mayoral debate between Jan Molinaro and Kim Lauk. Both are first time candidates for mayor. The incumbent, Mayor Liz Reynolds, chose not to seek a third term.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are on the rise across the U.S. and Washington and King County data show a similar trend towards more syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia.
Our family enthusiastically supports Jan Molinaro as Enumclaw’s next mayor. His operations and fiscal management along with his leadership experience is superlative and would be greatly valued as a visionary leader of our community.
The Courier-Herald is publishing a three-part debate between Black Diamond Mayor Carol Benson and her opponent Judy Baxley. Last week, candidates answered questions concerning the city, and what they would do as mayor to address any issues. This week, Part 2, is a chance for candidates to rebut their opponent’s statements. Part 3 will wrap-up with final statements.
Bills show hundreds of residents doubled or tripled their water usage in the past two months, but many say they’ve not increased, or even decreased, their water consumption, and the city’s system must be wrong.
