Awarded the bid to provide the District with traffic control flagging for the remainder of 1998 to Changing Directions. Two bids were received for the contract with quotes of $28,200 and $29,440. Providing the lowest responsive bid, Changing Directions was recommended for award. Traffic control flagging is necessary to provide safety protection for distribution crews and equipment. The agreement is not to exceed $100,000. Commissioners received approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for Douglas PUD's Recreation Action Plan update. The Wells Dam license requires that Douglas PUD submit a plan to update recreational facilities on the reservoir every five years. Some of the items to be included in this update are improved fishing access sites, bank stabilization, expanded swimming beach areas, benches, tables, and additional parking. Most of the work will take place at the cities of Pateros, Brewster and Bridgeport. Cost of the improvements is $1.3 million. Thomason article published in archaeology journal Alex wrote and submitted a research paper for a university class, something college students do all the time. The professor praised it, gave it a good grade, then asked him to revise it and make it simpler reading. Thomason said he was puzzled by this request. The professor had been studying archaeology for more than a quarter century; he should be able to interpret any paper written by acollege junior. However, he did not want the rewritten paper for himself. Thomason's paper was submitted and accepted for publication in an archaeological journal. He said he did not know the magazine's name or the publication schedule. "I was blown away," he said, when he learned that it would be published. The paperand its publication actually were the result of a mistake by the registrars at the Universityof Jerusalem in Israel, where Thomason and his friend Eric Freels were students. The two college juniors were enrolled in a graduate class; the professor told them they could stay if they could do the work, Thomason said. Thepaperisan analysisofthecoucept of resurrection and its roots in Jewish e and Biblical history, Thomason said. A devout Christian, his paper argued that the theory of resurrection was portofJewishtradition andlongpredated the first century AD, a point disputed by some historiansofearlyChristianity. Students in the graduate class also surveyed an historical site, in preparation for archaeological excavation. Thomason is returning to Israel this week to participate in an excavation at a different site, about five miles south of the Sea of Galilee. The scientists and support workers will be digging remains of a 6,000 year old town, once inhabited by Canaanites. Thonmson said theyexpect to find the remains of household goods and other remnants of daily living. He will be wielding a shovel on the site, as well as surveying the dig site. Thomason will be on the site about one month. He said he liked archaeology, calling it an "exciting hobby." He wants to return to Israel and particpate in additional digs, he said. But it will remain a hobby; he said he will be studying for adegree in business when he returns to Seattle Pacific University in the fall.

But he cautioned Pateros residents that listening to rumors about the case may mean they are getting the wrong information. The parks have been the target of vandals for a couple of months; the bathrooms and their fixtures have been damaged, and some trees were stripped of their bark. Thurber said the juveniles have been charged with vandalizing the bathrooms. Mayor Carol Mooney asked if the kids had admitted damaging the trees; Thurber said they had not. He said police did not know if the kids were responsible for that or anyoftheotherrecentactsofvandalism, although rumors to that effect are circulating in town. The police are checking on information they have received, Thurber said, and the investigation is continuing. In other businessat theregular coancil meeting Monday, July 13, council members voted to annex I 1 acres at the north city limits. The land belongs to Jack Nickell. Currently the land is used for a trailer court, part of which is already in the city. Nickell is selling some of the adjoining land, and adjusting boundaries and assessments would be far more complicated if the trailer court was part inside, part outside the city, according to testimony given at a public hearing prior to the council meeting. Council members received a draft copy of anew subdivision ordinance. Dale Bennett of HighlandsAssociates, the city's planning agency, explained that the ordinance and its provisions will govern any new subdivisions in the city, right down to the width and composition of interior streets. He asked council members to study it carefully; the developer pays for the initial construction of infrastructure systems, but the city assumes the responsibilitymand the cost--of maintenance. Bennett said in his opinion it was better to decide on a set of standards and write the ordinance to fit them rather than pass a general ordinance and grant variances. That could open the city to legal action, he said. The.proposed ordinance will be reviewed at the August 17 council meeting. City superintendent Dale Parks said maintenance workers had succeeded in repairing a sewer line break on WarrenAvenue. Repairing the sewer line was not the only emergency, Parks said; the excavation site kept growing bigger and bigger as more and more of the walls collapsed. Both the sewer line and the hole are fixed now, Parks said. He said he appreciated the efforts of community volunteers who helped the city crew on a dirty and somewhat smelly job. He said he also asked officials in other cities for advice, which they gave freely. He said he appreciated that too.
