Over the last 16 months, a powerful new economic voice has emerged calling for protecting Wilderness and Wild & Scenic Rivers in Washington: major business leaders and CEO’s of some of our state’s largest employers.

Wild Olympics

I’m not talking about the recent winter Olympics, this is much more regional.
In January, Representative Derek Kilmer and Senator Patty Murray reintroduced the Wild Olympics Wilderness & Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, in reference to Washington State’s resources and the headwaters on the Olympic Peninsula.
Being an “Olympic Peninsulan” by birth and upbringing, this issue raises great interest here on the home front.

WILDERNESS: Build on legacy of preservation

Dear Editor:

I’m grateful to U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer and Sen. Patty Murray for introducing the Wild Olympics Wilderness and Wild and Scenic Rivers Act into Congress.

My wife and I have long admired the wild lands of the Olympic. In 1990 we retraced the steps of the Seattle Press exploring party which traveled up the Elwha River to the Low Divide and down the Quinault River in midwinter 100 years before. We have climbed many of the Olympic Mountains, and often visit the wilderness beaches that extend along the coast from Tatoosh to the Hoh River.

Wilderness bill is a big accomplishment

To the editor:
I was happy to read recently that legislation was recently introduced to protect some of our best wild places on the Olympic Peninsula for future generations.
As owner of B.I.Cycle here on Bainbridge, I was one of more than 250 local businesses who have endorsed the proposal because it has been carefully crafted to balance protection of forests and rivers and preserving recreational access and economic opportunities.

In Our View: Olympics Bill Finds Balance

Any legislative proposal that can be filed under the category of "conservation" is likely to generate some knee-jerk opposition. The standard reaction in some quarters is to label such legislation as "job-killing" or "anti-business" or "bad for the economy."

But when it comes to the recently introduced Wild Olympics Wilderness and Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 2014, U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor, has an effective retort for the naysayers.
