Page 12- The Issaquah Press, Wednesday, June 22, 1983 Senior property tax exemptions increased Property tax exemptions for senior citizens and disabl- ed persons have been in- creased by the legislature effective with applications this year for taxes payable in 1984. First-time applicants must file claims with their county assessor by October l, 1983 to have the new benefits take effect next year. If a retiree already has filed under the old law, no further applica- tion will be required unless he or she comes under new pro- visions benefitting retirees re- ceiving nursing home aid or military care benefits. The 1983 act raises the allowable income ceiling to $15,000, and excludes from disposable income amounts paid to nursing homes for either spouse, and medical aid, and attendant care pay- ments received as a part of military or veterans' benefits. Retired homeowners not already registered are re- quested to contact the assessor's office for claim as- sistance. Seniors who believe that they come under the new nursing home aid or the veterans and military benefit provisions also should con- tact the assessor. Fresh-caught fish needs careful handling Summertime fishermen may bring back more than they've bargained for if they aren't careful with their catch, warns Karen Barale, director of dietary services at Harborview Medical Center. Barale frequently fishes for rockfish in Puget Sound. "Fish is an extremely perishable food, and spoils quickly if just thrown in the bottom of a boat and left there. By the time it's cooked and eaten, that fish may be full of salmonella bacteria," says Barale. "It may not smell or taste 'off,' but anyone eating it will develop salmonellosis, a type of food poisoning. They will have nausea, fever, head- ache, abdominal cramps, and perhaps vomiting 12-48 hours later," she adds. To avoid this unpleasant consequence, keep fish cold until cooking them. Ideally, the gills, guts, and kidney should be removed as soon as possible. The fish should then be stored in an ice-filled cooler. "Crushed ice will chill the fish faster than a solid block of ice," Barale says. "It's important to drain the cooler often so the fish don't soak in water, which will quickly cause them to spoil." She notes that if available, fish wrapped loosely in bags, newspapers, other porous keeping this covering evaporation will fish. Call toll-free with consumer complaints through Friday.

The state would have the option of logging the entire 15 percent in one year and then waiting l0 or taking out smaller percentages over several years. Of the five drainage basins identified, the Raging River, Holder Creek and North Fork of Issaquah Creek pose the least logging problems. They have productive soil and moderate slopes. Those hindus at0 on the Highway 18 and Preston sides of the mountain. According to the committee's studies, it would be more complicated to log on the Issaquah side. The Fifteen Mile Creek basin has unstable soils and many smaller creeks and the Issa- quah Creek basin has steep slopes such as the vertical Yah'er Wall, natural features such as the largest talus caves in the state, plus a problem with access to the trees. Project coordinator Rose doesn't want to say there would be no logging at all on the lssaquah side of the mountain -- only that there would be fewer problems on the Highway 18 side. The east side of the moun- tain would also be the only way to get into the forest, if the committee gets its way. The entrance would be on the Highway 18 turnoff now us- ed by motorcycles and other vehicles. There had been some discussion about open- ing up a county road off Ti- ger Mountain Road, which would have cut many miles off the long journey to Poe Poe Point, a popular take- off point for hang gliders. Tiger Mountain Road resi- dents argued against opening that area for access, saying increased traffic would aggravate the dangerous driving conditions on the winding road. At its last meeting, the committee also agreed there should be no overnight camping on the mountain and that the forest should probably be closed after dark. A shooting policy was drawn up at a meeting in Ap- ril. The committee recom- mends banning all shooting on the mountain except bow and arrow and shotgun dur- ing hunting season. There has been no agreement on how thi shooting policy will be enforced. Still unresolved is the continuing battle between hikers and bikers. Committee member Harvey Manning, president of the Issaquah Alps Trails Club, issued a nine-page argument aga!nst allowing vehicles on all but three main roads. Committee members Bill Longwell, representing the Moun- taineers and Ruth Kees, representing local environ- mental interests, also issued statements against off-road vehicles. Committee member Jenni- fer Wood, who represents motorcycle interests, says trail bike riding is a family activity that should be incor- porated into the state forest plans. She has argued strong- ly for a minimum of fifty miles of trail bike riding on the east side of the mountain, in addition to the logging roads. Motorbikes would have to have the proper mufflers and spark arresters and riders would be required to stay on established trails, according to Woods' proposal. Another issue that has not been resolved is the state's use of herbicides to control brush along the roadsides and to kill the broadleaf trees that spring up after a forest is clearest and replanted. Harvey Manning and former Mirrormont repre- sentative Laurene McLane argued against using herbi- cides, saying that they are highly risky and untested and that the state would be taking a big risk using the chemicals with so many people in the forest. Other committee members said the herbicides were the same as weed killers home- owners use on their lawns. Using them would be an "ac- ceptible risk," argued other committee members. In the committee's final plan, a range of choice will be presented to the Depart- ment of Natural Resources on the controversial issues of motorcycles and herbicides. "I don't think we can come to complete agreement on everything -- we're not going to have it all sorted out for the DNR," said Harold Robinson, committee chair and manager of the King County Planning Division. "We're just advisors," he added. "In the end, the de- partment's going to have to do its own management plan." "DOWN-HOME FOURTH OF JULY" KID 'N PET PARADE Front Street. Hi Kids of all ages!!
