The Yakama Nation is calling for the removal of three lower Columbia River dams — Bonneville, The Dalles and John Day — in an effort to save salmon and preserve First Nations’ culture. Standing on the banks of the Columbia River Monday, near the remnants of Celilo Falls, Yakama Nation Chairman JoDe Goudy traced the history of decrees, congressional acts and court cases that led to the damming of the river. “The false religious doctrine of Christian discovery was used by the United States to perpetuate crimes of genocide and forced displacement against Native Peoples,” Goudy said. “The Columbia River dams were built on this false legal foundation, and decimated the Yakama Nation’s fisheries, traditional foods and cultural sites.” This Indigenous Peoples’ Day, Goudy looked to the river behind him, now a lake, he said. “We are calling on that action to happen, because when you go back, and you understand the truth, with regard to what has materialized – this lake behind us all – once one

It’s been four years since the federal government initially started asking Washington residents whether they’d like to see more grizzly bears brought into the state. And still, the heated debate continues. Around 450 people filed into the AgriComplex building at the Okanogan County Fairgrounds Monday night. They wanted to voice their opinions on a draft plan to relocate grizzlies to the North Cascades. Republican Congressman Dan Newhouse, whose large central Washington district includes the North Cascades region, had pushed for another opportunity for his constituents to comment on the potential reintroductions. That came after a series of public meetings and an earlier comment period. Newhouse said this meeting was a “huge opportunity, no matter where you stand on this issue.” “I think you all know where I stand on this issue,” Newhouse told the crowd. “I don’t think the science supports it. I think it’s against state law. I don’t think the local communities want it.” To that, people

The New York Yankees hit 306 home runs this year with minimal contributions from Giancarlo Stanton.

Now he's back to try to help the Yankees win a title.

Stanton hit a mammoth home run Friday night at Texas, a reminder that yes, this New York lineup can actually become more powerful than it was for most of the season. Stanton played in only 18 regular-season games this year because of injury problems. He returned in mid-September and hit a couple homers as the Yankees wrapped up their 103-win campaign.

Now it's on to an American League Division Series against Minnesota that will feature the most prolific home run-hitting teams in baseball history. The Twins edged the Yankees by one, finishing with a record 307.

There is certainly some history between these two teams — and it's mostly been unpleasant for Minnesota. The Twins have been eliminated by the Yankees in five of Minnesota's last six postseason appearances.

The other Division Series matchup that's already set in stone is Atlanta vs. St. Louis.

After eight seasons with the Marlins, Stanton arrived in New York last year and finally made his postseason debut, although it was a fairly short one. The Yankees won the wild card game and then lost to Boston in the ALDS. Stanton had one extra-base hit — a homer — in five postseason games.

He has hit three homers in his injury-plagued 2019, but now October offers a second chance to shine.

HOSTING

The Nationals shrugged off a poor start this year and won 93 games, earning a chance to host the National League wild card game against Milwaukee. Washington won its final eight games of the regular season.

The Nats will try to reverse their trend of postseason disappointments. Washington hosted winner-take-all Game 5s in the Division Series...
