Thursday, l ebruary 20, 1964Published in '"Ch 'istrm stown, U.S.A.", Shelton, Washington 18 Pages -- 3 Sections b In A suit, pending six years, over alleged damage to oysters in sou- thern Puget Sound from the Ray- enter Inc. now non-operative pulp mill here. got underway in Feder- al Distrlct Court in Tacoma this week. The suit, for $334,175 damages, was brought by Olympia Oyster Compauy. Selection of the jury for tile trial was completed Mon- day. Judge George H. Boldt is presiding at tile trial. The oyster firm claims that between 3m~e, 1955 and October, 1956, waste effluent from the pulp mill dumped into Oakland Bay destroyed oysters in its beds there. The Rayonier pulp mill here was closed down in 1957 and all ot the equipment in it sold this past sum:net at auction. IN HIS OPENING statement Glenn Correa, Shelton; attorney for tile oyster company, contend- ed that the defendants did not follow several state regaflations in their operation, primarily one which required reusing or burning sulpbite waste liquor after it had been used in cooking wood chips into pulp. He contended that the sulphite waste was carried by the tides into the oyster beds killing the oysters. The first two witnesses called by Correa were adverse witncsses, both Rayonier enlph)yees here. Edward $. McGill. plant super- intended to be done on streets not in the arterial street system. The city several months ago approved a six-year arterial street program. The city can use %c gas tax money from the state in work on arterial stre~s. The street program which was approved Tuesday is that which will be done largely by city crews during the next three years and financed by city funds. INCLUDED in the program for 1964 is the repair of the concrete ms'face and providing drainage on Fourth Street from Cedar Street 100 feet south; regrading, ballast, shaping and crushed stone surfac- ing on Laurel Street from N 13th Street to K Street, J Street fl~)m Olympic Highway North to King Street and G Streel Prom Olym- pic Highway North to Kink Street and filling on D Street from Olym- pic Highway North to Laurel Street and E Street from King Street to N. 13th Street. Scheduled ill the program for 1965 is regrading, ballast, shaping and crusbed stone surfacing on F Street from Madison to Jefferson Streets. Jefferson Street from F to G Streets, E Street from Ad- enue from Eighth Street to Ninth Street; 12th Street fronl Tmner to May Avenues, Boundary Street and Pioneer Way from Roosevelt to McKinley Streets, Roosevelt Street from Feny" to Boundary Streets, Mason Street from Cas- cade to Dearborn Avenues and Tenth Street from Turner to Eu- clid Avenues. The Euclid Avenue section ot the work planned in 1966 is sched- uled to be hard surfaced under the arterial street program during 1967. Estimated cost of the work is $7,730 for 1964; $3,220 for 1965 and $6,100 for 1967. Also in the qine of street work, the conlnaission instructed 13yrne to go ahead with getting price quotations flOFll contractors ell equipment rental for widening Pi- oneer Way and insttdling a storm sewer system on it. BYliNE SAIl) thai: hard sur- facing Of part of Pioneer VVay was planned under the arterial street program for 1965, and, that lie- fore that: was done a drainage sys- tem would have to be installt~,d. The plans call for widening the street, he said, and, ti would be easier to widen it to the desired width when tile storm drains are iustalled than to do it later and have to move them.
