April 14, 1977, Monitor, Monroe, WA., Page Three HOMELITE ALLEY SCENERY--It's amazing what beautiful things one can find in the alleys of Monroe. These Dab mations, owned by Jim Fraser of PETITION ACCEPTED-- The sig- natures of some 450 persons were accepted Friday by Snohomish County Public Transportation Ben- Committee OK's Bill to Create Cascade County A bill to create Cascade County out of the eastern two-thirds of King County passed the House Local Gov- ernment Committee last week by an 8-4 majority. The bill (HB 436), came to light after residents in east- ern King County complained of a lack of representation in Olympia because of competi- tion with larger metropolitan areas of the county, includ- ing Seattle, the state's larg- est city. Under the bill, a majority of Wagner Hill, posed recently in the alley behind the Monroe Monitor building. A 16-year-old Monroe youth is recuperating from a wound he received Friday after accidentally.shooting himself in the leg. According to Snohomish County Sheriff's Information Officer Bob Monize, John Skinner of Rt. 3 Box 146, Monroe, was target shooting with a friend near the Old Monroe-Snohomish Highway and 164th St. when the mishap occured. Skinner apparently decided to practice a quick draw with his .22-caliber pistol with the safety mechanism off and the weapon discharged, striking him in the right leg above the knee. His companion flagged down a passing motorist, who helped take the wounded youth to Valley General Hospital for treatment, Monize said. Skinner was released Monday from the hospial in satisfactory condition. The House Agriculture Committee, Friday, April 1, passed out House Bill 218, an alternative to Initiative 59--the Family Farm Water Act--that was recently defeated in the House of Representatives, according to Representative Sim Wilson, R-10th District. Wilson explained that once the initiative, sponsored by the Washington State Grange, was defeated in the House, it will appear on the next general election ballot for approval or rejection by the people. The legislator explained that HB 218 and HB 1120 will be debated on the floor of the House in an effort to determine which, if any, of the measures will be placed on the ballot as an alternative to the Grange initiative. HB 1120 was passed out of the House Ecology Committee some weeks ago and in many respects is similar to HB 218 that.came out of the House Agriculture Committee. Representative Wilson explained that HB 218 provides for a 45-year term permit for farming operations exceeding 2,000 acres, HB 1120 has a 35-year term permit and Initia- tive 59 has a 10-year permit provision. He explained that HB 218 requires the Department of Ecology to notify the farmer upon request if the term permit will be renewed or not after the first 25 years of the original permit. Another provision is a so-called "buy back" program where the state would purchase the equipment necessary for irrigation and farming of the acreage in excess of the 2,000 acre limitation if the permit was extended. HB 1120 contains a similar provision. Wilson said HB 218 establishes a "fractional permit" system. The "fractional permit" system would allow the farmer and the Department of Ecology to enter into nego- tiations if the DOE was not going to grant a renewal of the farmer's water permit. These negotiations could result in the farmer receiving the same amount of water as he or she received in the original permit, but for a shorter period of time, or it could result in a reduced amount of water for a 45-year term or some other arrangement, Rep. Wilson explained. HB 218 will go to the House Rules Committee prior to it being brought out on the floor of the House for debate. HB 1120 is currently before the full House for discussion.
