Yelm and Thurston County Issues

“We are deeply saddened to learn of the accidental and sudden passing of Sally Paulsen. According to the report from the Thurston County Sheriff’s office, her death was ruled accidental, and we share in the grief with Sally’s family, fellow students, her friends, coworkers, and neighbors. Sally’s unexpected death affects us all, and many lives will be affected because of her untimely passing.

“To address the question of Ms. Paulsen’s food storage, preparing for disasters is at the forefront of the news these days with the tragic earthquake in Japan and the destructive tornados striking this country this Spring. This is consistent with the teachings at Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment (RSE) where Ms. Paulsen was a student.

“Five years ago, two former US presidents, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, urged the public to be prepared.
See their Public Service Announcement (PSA)

RSE encourages students to become self-reliant and to contribute to their community so that they can be a resource rather than a liability.”

WA. Supreme Court to hear JZ Knight’s case on May 26

Yelm and Thurston County Issues

The Washington Supreme Court will conduct a live hearing on Thursday, May 26, at 9:00 a.m. (PDT) in Case No. 84831-9, Knight v. City of Yelm.
Click here for the Live TV or Live Webcast.

Knight originally filed a land use appeal in Thurston County Superior Court in March of 2008 challenging the City of Yelm’s approval of five preliminary plats totaling 568 new residences. On November 7, 2008, Thurston County Superior Court Judge Chris Wickham entered a final judgment, reversing the City of Yelm’s attempt to approve five proposed new developments without adequate proof of a sufficient water supply.

The Court of Appeals opinion issued on April 13, 2010 dismissed JZ Knight’s LUPA petition and reversed the Thurston County Superior Court ruling.

JZ Knight filed a petition July 19, 2010, seeking Washington Supreme Court review of a Court of Appeal’s decision issued on April 13, 2010.

The Supreme Court granted review of Knight’s case at their November 2, 2010 conference.
