     History proves President Franklin D. Roosevelt lead
with authority and for the last 60+ years Washington State and the Nation has repeat the benefit of his leadership!
 
    It is my belief "Real leaders should lead the herd", they 
shouldn't be "quiet followers warming a seat of leadership
just collecting a pay check"!
 
 
 
    Are there any "Real leaders in America   
       today?     They are very hard to find!
 
   We seem to have several small minded or empty minded Coward's "setting in the seats of power where leaders are suppose to set today collecting a pay check", in my opinion!

Internet firms heading east in their quest for powerBy Blaine Harden Washington Post

QUINCY, Grant County — Microsoft is pouring concrete in a bean field on the west end of town. Yahoo! is digging up a field of alfalfa out on the east end. Google, which declines to comment, is said to be sniffing around for its own field of dreams here in the semidesert outback of Eastern Washington.This small farm town, population 5,300, has become the Klondike of the wildly competitive Internet era. The gold in Quincy is electricity, which technology heavyweights need to operate ever-larger data centers as they fight for world domination.Their data centers — air-conditioned warehouses filled with thousands upon thousands of computer servers that talk to Internet users around the globe — are extraordinary power hogs. Microsoft says electricity consumption at its data centers doubled over the past four years and will triple over the next five.There is cheap electricity here, and lots of it. That is because the Columbia, the premier hydroelectric river in North America, flows nearby. Three publicly owned local utilities own five large dams on the river, and they produce much more electricity than the sparse local population can use. With power prices soaring, the three utilities have become the hydroelectric emirates of the Pacific Northwest.Until now, they have been obligated under 50-year-old contracts to sell about two-thirds of their power — without profit — to major utilities serving millions of people in Seattle, Tacoma and Portland. The arrangement helped keep monthly electric bills in the Northwest far below the national average.Those old contracts, though, are expiring — a development that will help push up residential electricity rates across the region.   And the mid-Columbia utilities are scurrying to sell their newly unleashed power to the corporate giants of the Internet — if they are willing to plant "server farms" in two-stoplight towns such as Quincy.  They do seem uncommonly eager.
 
"Salivating" for power Out in the bean field, Microsoft is rushing to complete what it says will be the largest data center it has ever built. It is scheduled to go online in February.Downstream in The Dalles, Ore., Google is building a data center that will go online within the next year and is reported by local officials to be scouring the region looking for other sites.Upstream in Wenatchee, Yahoo! is expected to go online with another data center in the fall and is in negotiations for still others."They are salivating," said Rufus Woods, publisher of The Wenatchee World.It was his grandfather, also named Rufus Woods, who was the principal booster and relentless propagandist behind federal construction of Grand Coulee Dam, completed in 1942 as the world's largest dam. It is still the largest hydroelectric plant in North America.Grand Coulee, by creating a 151-mile-long reservoir behind the dam, ironed out the violent flow of the Columbia, ending early summer floods and making it easier for local utilities downstream to build much less expensive dams that could milk significant amounts of power from the river.The first Rufus Woods boasted noisily in the pages of his newspaper that electricity from the dams would lure major industry to Wenatchee and the Columbia Basin. But the federal government broke his heart by stringing wires across the Northwest and setting up rules requiring dams to sell most electricity at a postage-stamp rate, meaning that power had to cost the same in Wenatchee as it did hundreds of miles away in Seattle, Tacoma or Portland.
 
How many jobs? Although farming in the Columbia Basin boomed thanks to irrigation water diverted by Grand Coulee, major industry, for the most part, ignored Wenatchee and towns such as Quincy for most of the past seven decades.Companies could get plenty of cheap power in Seattle and Portland without having to build in the boondocks — until now.  
 
"Everything is finally coming together for us," said Curt Morris, a commissioner of the Port of Quincy. "By taking that calculated risk to build those dams years ago, we have an asset that is going to start performing for us."He said that data-center investment by Microsoft and Yahoo! would more than double the $300 million tax base in Quincy. The price of vacant lots in Quincy has jumped fourfold since word of Yahoo! and Microsoft leaked early this year.At The Wenatchee World, though, there are doubts about how many jobs will come with the server farms that are going to suck up the region's electricity. Yahoo! has told planners it will have between eight and 25 employees in Wenatchee, while Microsoft and Yahoo together have said they will employ about 150 in Quincy."The numbers of employees are so small," said Wilfred Woods, 86, chairman of the board at the newspaper and son of the late Rufus Woods. 
 
"We are not backing the coming of the data centers like we backed Grand Coulee." The Woodses — Wilfred and his son Rufus, the current publisher — say they are worried about the prudence and competence of the mid-Columbia utilities to manage the sale of power to the Internet behemoths in a way that maximizes local economic development and minimizes incompetence and waste.
 
Concerns arise The recent management history at Chelan County Public Utility District, which serves Wenatchee, and Grant County Public Utility District, which services Quincy, is checkered. 
 
When power prices soared during the Western energy crisis of 2001, Chelan PUD paid two of its power traders $285,000 each.  
 
Salaries for several managers at the utility also rose to $100,000-plus levels, causing widespread irritation in a county where the median family income is $38,000 a year.  
 
Top managers have since been replaced."They have money coming out their ears," Rufus Woods said. "There has been an attempt to take that money and put it into the hands of the people who work there."Grant County PUD, too, has weathered management scandals and been forced to replace top managers.
 
It is now being challenged by the Internal Revenue Service for issuing tax-free bonds to build a fiber-optic network that could benefit private business.  The fiber-optic network has been a major selling point for Microsoft and Yahoo!, whose server farms need redundant, high-speed data pipelines.  Managers at the two utilities say they, too, are worried about how much cheap power should be allocated to companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo! — and how many jobs are likely to come of it. "It is a real concern of the commissioners," said Tim Culbertson, general manager at Grant County PUD, referring to the five elected local officials who make policy for the utility.
 
"They don't necessarily like the low-jobs and high-megawatts situation that goes with the data centers. But the utility has an obligation to serve. It has no ability to require jobs."
 
Costly to replace   For millions of electricity consumers in the Northwest, the unfolding power machinations in the mid-Columbia region are likely to cause increases in monthly electricity bills. As high-tech companies use more low-cost electricity in places such as Quincy, less will find its way to homes around the region.
 
"When I have to replace it in the marketplace, that power will be more costly," said Eric Markell, senior vice president for energy resources at Puget Sound Energy, the largest utility in Washington.    Markell said that while there are many other forces putting upward pressure on power costs, the loss of cheap power from the mid-Columbia dams "will be a factor in rising electricity bills."  Here in Quincy, local business leaders are relieved that the Yahoo! and Microsoft data centers will create relatively few jobs and that the children of newcomers will not swamp local schools. 
 
 "For us, having minimal new jobs is a relief, at least for the short term," said Lisa Karstetter, executive director of the Quincy Valley Chamber of Commerce. "We can't grow that fast. Everything is already full around here."

WENATCHEE — Wilfred Woods, retired Wenatchee World publisher and board chairman, will receive one of the highest honors handed out by the state of Washington.
 
 
STORY TOOLS
  
 Wilfred Woods: Honored for service to others
Woods is one of four people chosen for the state's Medal of Merit award for extraordinary achievement that benefits others. The awards will be given before a joint session of the Legislature at the House chambers Feb. 11.
 
 
The highest awards given by the state are the medals of merit and valor. The merit award honors service to the citizens of Washington, and the valor award goes to those who risked their lives to try to save others.
 
 
Four people will receive the valor award next month.
 
 
"I'm certainly honored to be considered for something like this, my goodness," Woods said Friday.
 
 
He said he was nominated by Sherry Schreck of Wenatchee without his knowledge, and was surprised to learn he had been selected to receive the medal.
 
 
The Medal of Merit was first awarded by the state in 1987.
 
 
The only other person from North Central Washington to receive it was the late Grady Auvil, an orcharding pioneer from Orondo, in 1998.
 
 
A selection committee made up of Gov. Christine Gregoire, Lt. Gov. Brad Owen, Secretary of State Sam Reed, Supreme Court Justice Jerry Alexander and House Speaker Frank Chopp reviewed the nominations and chose the winners.
 
 
The other honorees are Bill Gates Sr., co-chairman of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Emma Smith DeVoe and May Arkwright Hutton, who will receive the medals posthumously for leading a successful effort in 1910 to amend the state constitution to give women the right to vote.
 
 
A news release issued by the Secretary of State's Office heralded Woods as a longtime champion of civic and economic concerns in NCW. During 47 years as publisher of The World, he promoted economic development and dedicated many stories and personal columns to public power, highways, port districts and natural resources.
 
 
He also has been a philanthropic leader, especially in the arts.
 
 
The news release highlights his work in establishing the Woods Conservatory of Music in Wenatchee and in helping to lead the drive for the community's Performing Arts Center.
 
 
He also has been involved in several statewide efforts, serving 10 years on the state Parks and Recreation Commission, as well as sitting on the state Centennial Commission, American Forestry Association Board and the Central Washington University Board.
 
 
Asked about his community involvement, Woods said, "I'm interested in seeing things happen. I've been particularly interested in resource development, the Columbia Basin and the river. I guess I was available and willing to serve, so I did."
 
 
"I've had a lot of fun," he added.

Gary Locke was appointed by President Obama as the 36th Secretary of Commerce and sworn into office on March 26, 2009.
At the Department of Commerce, Locke is charged with helping implement President Obama's ambitious agenda to turn around the economy and put people back to work.
As the first Chinese-American to hold this post in a president's cabinet, Locke has a distinctly American story. His grandfather emigrated from China to Washington state, initially finding employment as a servant, working in exchange for English lessons. Locke's father, also born in China, was a small business owner, operating a grocery store where Locke worked while receiving his education from Seattle's public school system. His strong work ethic and determination eventually took him to the highest office in the state of Washington.
Prior to his appointment, Locke helped U.S. companies break into international markets as a partner in the Seattle office of the international law firm, Davis Wright Tremaine LLP. There, he co-chaired the firm's China practice and was active in its governmental relations practice.
 
As the popular two-term governor of Washington, the nation’s most trade-dependent state, Locke broke down trade barriers around the world to advance American products. He helped open doors for Washington State businesses by leading 10 productive trade missions to Asia, Mexico and Europe, significantly expanding the sale of Washington products and services. He also successfully strengthened economic ties between China and Washington State. His visits are credited with introducing Washington companies to China and helping more than double the state's exports to China to over $5 billion per year.
 
As part of his considerable trade and economic development efforts, Locke launched Washington’s Competitiveness Council with business, labor and civic leaders working together to effectively position Washington State for success at home and around the world. During the eight years of the Locke Administration, the state gained 280,000 jobs.
 
Locke earned a bachelor's degree in political science from Yale University and a law degree from Boston University. He is married to Mona Lee Locke. They have three children: Emily, Dylan and Madeline.
 
     Original Leader of "Team Washington", I will need his help on this project for it to succeed!

Jay Robert Inslee (born February 9, 1951) is a DemocraticAmerican politician, currently serving as U.S. Representative from Washington's 1st congressional district. The district includes many of Seattle's northern suburbs in King, Snohomish, and Kitsap counties. Inslee and his wife Trudi were high school sweethearts and have been married since August 27, 1972. They have three sons, Jack, Connor, and Joe, and live on Bainbridge Island.
Born in Seattle, he graduated from Seattle's Ingraham High School and the University of Washington (B.A., Economics) and Willamette University College of Law. After practicing law for ten years in Selah, a suburb of Yakima, Inslee ran for the Washington House of Representatives in 1988 after the state legislature undermined a school bond that he had worked to pass after years of failure. Inslee was elected and served until 1992, when he ran for and was elected to the United States Congress representing Washington's 4th congressional district in the central part of the state, a rural, agricultural-based constituency. In Congress Inslee passed the Yakima River Enhancement Act, a bill long held up in Congress by brokering a breakthrough with irrigators and wildlife advocates. He also helped to open Japanese markets to American apples, and fund and oversee the nation's biggest nuclear waste site at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation near Richland, Washington

The Man Who Made Obama
Campaign manager David Plouffe got the first black president elected. Now he's moving on to something even more difficult, and potentially more important.
 
 
 
Plouffe with Obama at the second presidential debate last October. The prep was serious, he says, "but we had fun. It wasn't like the Clinton campaign."
 
When you have been to the moon, you can't come back to Earth and stand in line at Starbucks. You can't order a coffee, and pay for it, and drink it beside someone wearing Sarah Palin glasses and a cruise visor. The regression to mediocrity is stunning and sapping. You would die inside.
 
After de-mooning, Buzz Aldrin got depressed and divorced. He drank and he returned to the Air Force. But the Air Force doesn't fly to the moon; it's glad to clear the clouds.
Campaign consultant Paul Begala landed Bill Clinton the most powerful job on the ground. That's a moon trip, too. Once, Begala sent Buzz Aldrin a fan letter. What Begala wondered — because it's the same question that bedevils the people who get other people elected president — is what you do after you come back down. What in the world do you do now?
 
"Buzz was the second man on the moon, and the guy comes back and he can't get out of bed in the morning," says Begala. "What the fuck do you do after you get on the moon? What the fuck do you do?"
 
There is a picture of large-eared David Plouffe in his college newspaper. It's 1988 at the University of Delaware, and there's a story on the student who, two decades later, would design a black man's winning campaign for president that at its most linear was described by its opposition as "perfect." At its most cultish, it was "breathtaking," "golden," "justice."
 
The seven-hundred-word article is about beer pong. Plouffe and his college roommate were prolific. "For two years," says Barack Obama's campaign manager, "that's all we did." Classes, he wasn't that into them. He never graduated.
Today Plouffe, forty-one, is wearing a bargain-colored henley shirt and smiling into his grouper sandwich. It's a cold day in early December in Washington, D. C., and Plouffe's face has a windburned clean to it. Life has become the whirlwind that happens when you have publicly done something very good, or bad. His mouth becomes a cartoon shape when he smiles, a sunny crescent.
 
"You have to use a paddle, or you can use a saucepan, but where do you think the word pong comes from? It's not just about the ball," he says. In fact, if you think it's just about the ball, you're missing most of the game.
 
An old college buddy says that Plouffe was far more skilled at the hanging out and drinking than at the game. He also loved Roger Clemens and the Democratic party. Originally from Wilmington, he cleaned chimneys and sold knives during college summers.
 
This is not the sort of man who looks as if he's good at asking for money. He's calm and has a pent-up grin. He says "Listen" a lot. It's moderately jarring. It makes you think that what he's about to say is essential, so come closer. "Listen." But really it's only a blinking cursor, a half beat of an inflection.
 
You might describe this shy middleman by not describing him. He has a widow's peak, which today has been gelled into rigid formation, and the teeth of a man who has never smoked a cigarette. He's small and lean and always seems to be folded into a gesture of lanky politeness, arms crossed, and legs. He wears T-shirts under his button-down shirts, like the small boys in high school did to feign bulk with cotton. On his first appearance on Fox News Sunday, he swallowed hard in between answers. He looked thirsty.
 
He is a modest champion, puppy-loyal, and wholly inoffensive. His friends and colleagues, both in and outside the party, unfailingly call him brilliant and kind and inspiring and inspired. "If he wanted to go invent cold fusion, he'd figure out a way to do it," says Jim Messina, who ran the campaign's budget and is now deputy chief of staff to Obama. Others suggest that General Motors, bleeding America in Detroit, could clot the hemorrhage by popping Plouffe in as CEO.
 
Here at this lunch table, David Plouffe is soft-spoken, and he is quick. He is nice to the waitress, but she is barely there, invisible on his radar, and the clang of the dishes and the laughter of lunchtime are inaudible. He keenly concentrates on describing his strategy. He is focused, meditative. He is yours for this hour, because this is what he has allotted. He is exact, and he is frank.
 
But also, David Plouffe is very quiet. No, not quiet, because quiet isn't strong enough. Try reticent. David Plouffe is preternaturally reticent. Some might even say secretive.
"He is such a guarded person, intensely private," says David Axelrod, Plouffe's partner and Obama's campaign strategist and now senior advisor. "The one thing I would say, if he ever invites you to a friendly game of poker, you shouldn't go. You never know what's going on in his head. . . . He's got eyes that are like headlights, and you know that he's taking in everything that he's seeing."
 
These are the qualities — the poker face and the hush, in the service of his also-quiet master — that helped him make winning Barack Obama the presidency look not just easy but preordained. Yes, there was some luck to it. A once-in-a-lifetime candidate, a fast-unspooling economy, a low point for national self-esteem, an opponent who, aside from a brief moment over the summer, was all but inept. But still, it takes impossible talent to make it look so easy. It takes genius and discipline. A campaign-season's worth of silence.
 
But David Plouffe has something else now. Something that Aldrin lacked, something that eluded Begala and Carville and Atwater and even Karl Rove, who rode his success into the White House. A magic beanstalk that will keep you on the moon, even while you're back down at Starbucks.
David Plouffe has a list.
 
It was Plouffe (rhymes with bluff) who gathered the president's unprecedented thirteen-million-name contact list, which has grown into a fulsome pulsing beast, and it is Plouffe who now owns it and keeps it under lock and key. Plouffe sent those thirteen million people an e-mail in mid-November and they replied, Yes, I still want to be involved, and yes, David Plouffe, I'll have house parties when you tell me to. Here is who I am socioeconomically and socially. I am boxers; my next-door neighbor is briefs. Now the president has instructed him to make that list a new lever of government.
No president has ever entered office with this much information. The closest thing to it, Begala says, were direct-mail lists like Ronald Reagan's back in 1980. But, he says, "it's a different thing than Reagan writing, 'Send me thirty-five bucks if you want to fight the Commies.' " This list is granular. And it is flexible and transferable to myriad media outlets — even those not yet invented. Begala believes it could potentially "revolutionize progressive politics."
 
The idea is a national operation, likely named Organizing for America, that will resemble Obama's grassroots operation in reach and love. It will be as finely tuned as the campaign behemoth and funded the same way — no money from third parties. If Obama has a policy initiative he wants to push, or a message he needs to disseminate, or a gaffe he wants to bat down, he will call David Plouffe and Plouffe will unleash the many-million-mouthed dog, just as he did all across America for these past two years.
If you believe in Obama and in the need for change and for a new, streamlined, hyperlinked Democratic party, then this is a watershed idea. It is a mechanism that could truly morph the power structure in Washington — waking up the unused, overslept public, as Plouffe successfully did on the campaign, and making an end run around lobbyists and interest groups.
 
But if you are part of the Old Guard — part of the pre-Obama DNC or a liberal interest group like the Center for American Progress or labor or the environmental lobby — which has spent years trying to figure out a way to rouse and organize the Democratic machine, then this new initiative might give you pause. Because if Plouffe runs it like he ran the campaign, unless you join the ticket and stay on message, you will be left on the bench, asking Sarah Palin for a light. It is a new Democratic take on the old Bush maxim: Either you will be with Organizing for America, or you will be against it.
 
"The outside groups are worried about being bulldozed," says one well-placed Democratic source. "The question is, is this shortsighted on behalf of Team Obama? This is the strategy they adopted during their campaign, which was no independent expenditures, no 527's, no outside groups. They would be command central on messaging. And it was a strategy that paid off . . . [because] everything went Obama's way. You can't count on that going forward."
 
The fear is that the Obama machine will ignore any groups or messages not in sync with the administration. Or worse, that if for some reason Organizing for America falters, there will be a vacuum.
 
Perhaps it's a silly fear. Misplaced. I mean, just look at David Plouffe sitting there, courteously sipping his Diet Coke from a straw, talking about the right way to get a small white ball into a red cup. He just got Barack Obama elected president.
You can trust David Plouffe. The president sure as hell does.

     I dropped my proposal off and I am certain the
President's best minds are working hard to include this
project at the top of the Presidents "Public Works
Projects"!  
 
     This project will be a example, of the President's ability
to work  jointly with both parties and achieve support
projects to help OUR NATION by generating new jobs for
the unemployed during this depression!
 
                      Right here is the Great Think Tank!
 
     No doubt these "young Democratic minds" are
reviewing the Largest Public Works project of FDR, and
they will see the wisdom of completing the project for
today's economic crisis!  It worked for Franklin and
it will work for President Obama today!                              
 
 
    I am a Proud member of Renew America & Organizing for America!

Mitch Stewart's Organizing Update - March 9, 2009
 
 
                  Why He MattersStewart could be dubbed President Barack Obama’s head cheerleader. That’s because he runs Organizing for America (OFA), which is tasked with marshaling the 13 million volunteers recruited during Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and forging them into an unprecedented grassroots policy movement.Urging former Obama campaign activists to spread information, OFA is attempting to leverage a 13-million strong email list that is unparelled in political history. It's aims were to help push the 2009 stimulus package and a massive health-care overhaul, which was enacted in March 2010 (though a more moderate version than many progressives preferred).An experienced campaigner, Stewart first joined the Obama team in 2007 as an Iowa caucus director. After Obama’s win there positioned him to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination, Stewart took over the important swing state of Virginia in the general election. For the first time in 44 years, the Old Dominion went to a Democratic candidate.After the election, the Obama administration sought to convert the president's millions of ardent supporters into policy advocates. Housed in the Democratic National Committee (DNC), OFA urges citizens to evangelize Obama’s policies. The experiment in converting a campaign network into issues advocacy will be closely watched by both political parties.

         Mitch Stewart told members to bring new ideas that
    would help the President and OUR COUNTRY! I met Mitch
    in March of 2009 and discussed the project proposal, and
    traveled back again in November and delivered the video
    of the "Columbia Basin Project"!     
     
         No doubt these "young Democratic minds" are
    reviewing the Largest Public Works project of FDR,
    and they will see the wisdom of completing the project
    for today's economic crisis! It worked for Franklin
    and it will work for President Obama today!
