Retired Forester...now fishing instead of working
Well, OK, I'll bite. I'm assuming the CAZ is the same thing as the State of Liberty proposal pushed by my current State Legislative Rep. Matt Shea...that is, Washington East of the Cascade divide. Roughly 30% of the Washington Electorate,. We still are "one person, one vote", not "one acre, one vote" so, well, that's one of the reasons he's wrong. But, here you are.
II don't care at all for Matt Shea.
But, I also thought one man one vote was a unconstitutional decision by a court that should have known better. Oh well, most of them never had to take a citizenship test on constitutional questions.
2. It's hard to choose, but the Columbia Basin Project outpaces Hanford, just by a few billion.
3. Grant, Douglas, Chelan and Okanogan Public Utility Districts, though they are not in fact county governments. See below.
3/4's Correct. Ok....PUD's are county level governments.
4. Pend Oreille County, unless you include Skagit County in your Zone.
5. Richland Bombers. Easy. Second best name in the northwest, after the Orofino Maniacs in Idaho.
6. Not all that popular as a place name. He was "the most important prophet in Judaism". Was he a Jew? I suppose that depends on who you ask. As for me, "Jesus Saves, Moses Invests."
Wrong. He was not a Jew. Big Hint.....there is a statue of Moses in East Wenatchee. One cold and bitter winter, some good samaritian went out and put a substantial overcoat on the statue.
7. No Counties own dams on the Columbia mainstem. Grant County Public Utility District owns Priest Rapids and Wanapum, Chelan County PUD owns Rock Island (the first dam on the Coumbia) and Rocky Reach, and Douglas County PUD owns Wells. Wanna get in a fight with an old white guy? Tell a PUD commissioner he's a County Government.
3/4 credit. Missed two dams. Ok...PUD's are county level government. I don't get into fights with white guy PUD commissioner....I pick on the old white lady commissioner.
8. I've no idea to whom you are referring. Tourism west of the Continental Divide was not particularly widespread in the early 1800's. Early folks in Eastern Washington might look to David Thompson's 1810's visits and establishments of various posts (as well as reaching Astoria) or the exploits of his voyageur companion Jocko Findlay (for whom there are many family, place, and river names).
Correct. I am impressed. How did you forget those two eastern tourists??? Lewis and Clark??
9. I'll guess Yakima within the meaning of your question, but having spent some time in many small towns and Catholic churches in eastern Washington, you oughta be careful who you call "minority".
Wrong. Office of Financial Management (state of Washington) term...not mine.
10. The legislature and the Spokane folks have always had a problem thus I'll guess Ellensburg. Most of Western WA and folks on this board figure Washington ends at a N-S line extending from Oroville to Yakima, and I really don't mind, personally.
11. Well, by your earlier post, I guess you're referring to the day north Idaho and Eastern Washington didn't become their own state. I've never heard anyone say it was the most tragic day, certianly not in North Idaho. I believe in the current environment we've yet to see that day, even after the Wobblies and riots in North Idaho and Eastern Washington; the intentional Iodine releases by the AEC at Hanford affecting countless women of my and my mothers' age during their child bearing years, the many, many indignities paced upon the tribes large and small in the Columbia Basin to create what is now a chain of lakes, the Coeur d'Alene lead disaster. Among other indignities suffered by resource colonies.
So, no, not in 63 years have I heard that day referred to as the most tragic day affecting the region. Not even close. By anyone.
Correct. But the bill establishing a new territory to included eastern Washington, North Idaho, and western Montana was actually done at the behest of North Idaho.
But as a lifelong resident, I'll tell you that we need Puget Sound, and they need us. And that without each other we are less. Even when we forget. We forget that most of the Skagit Dams are Seattle City Light projects. We forget that without ports in Washington we can't ship shit. let alone wheat and aluminum. We forget they support our schools, and our roads, and all kinds of other stuff they don't even know about with their money, from irrigation projects they don't even like to roads between St. John and Winona, towns they can't find on a map. They support our cops, our food banks, and all the other stuff we need out here being rugged individualists. .......
5.5 correct. I am impressed. Those were tough questions. The only reason I got 100% was that I got to pick the questions!!! I do have a friend, that probably would get 100% I might have to give it to him.
Well, I post a "provincial" test to provide some balance to the Cascadia test and all hell breaks loose.
Good thing I went fishing after posting the "test".
