November 2020 UPDATE: The Jefferson County, WA page has now been marked as a 'fan page' by Facebook, indicating it is NOT an official county page.
JEFFERSON COUNTY, WA - There seems to be growing controversy over the unofficial Jefferson County, WA Facebook page which appears to be run by Clallam County resident Joe D'Amico and former PT Leader contributor Patrick Sullivan.
With a plethora of low 1-star reviews, the Jefferson County, WA Facebook page appears to be more about promoting the agenda of Mr. D'Amico (his proposed gun range in Quilcene, his discontent for County Sheriff Dave Stanko, etc.) and less about promoting that of Jefferson County or its citizens.
Recent and previous reviews on the page highlight just what the community thinks...
This page is NOT an official page for Jefferson County, Washington. It was created by a man who is a disgrace to our county, Joe D'Amico. Joe doesn't even live in Jeffrson County. He and his friend Patrick Sullivan administer this page. Don't be fooled into thinking this page has anything to do with the county administration.
“This page's byline is "Jefferson County Washington is manage [sic] by the citizens of Jefferson County Washington" but it is, in fact, managed by one particular resident and his business interests. This page is fraudulent, has no relationship to the government of Jefferson County, is not reflective of the views of the other residents of Jefferson County, and is a giant conflict of interest for Joe D'Amico and his private security company. He should turn the page over to Jefferson County.”
“Don't spread slanted news & views. Don't claim to be an official mouthpiece for the county.”
Not an official page. Whoever is running this should turn it over to the county officials
HOMES NOW… OR, PARTY DOWN?
PORT TOWNSEND - A group described by Proposition 1 proponents as an “ideal vehicle” for possibly millions of dollars collected from higher property taxes is using taxpayer money for a post-election retreat.
A public records request has unearthed a grant from the City of Port Townsend to Homeward Bound for $30,000. The grant is described as a contract, but simply gives money for unspecified “work” that includes $5,000 for a post-election retreat.
Homeward Bound is the organization behind the $1.6 million “Cherry Street Project” in Port Townsend. This is a four-unit apartment building barged from Victoria, B.C. that has been sitting idle and uninhabitable on stacks of wooden blocks since early May. (The $1.6 million is calculated from all costs of the project: purchase, transportation and staging of the building, final construction and foundation, the $600,000 cost of the land and interest charges).

CHIMACUM - Don’t let the word Vegan scare you away from trying this delicious carrot cake. The cake itself is moist and utterly delicious while the addition of the cashew/macadamia nut frosting is simply out of this world. Good bye cream cheese frosting, we won’t be needing you again!
A few words of advice, follow this recipe to a T and you will not be disappointed! Be sure to soak your nuts as directed and use a high powered mixer (I used a VitaMix) for best quality. Also, make sure your baking powder is fresh, preferable new, as there are no eggs in recipe and this is most useful for rising.
Try buying your carrots from a local farm or produce stand such as Red Dog Farms or Chimacum Farm Stand for added flavor & finesse.
