Interesting article helping to put the controversy over the firing range here at Tarboo Lake into a larger context. I’ll leave it to the reader to draw their own conclusions.
“An apocalyptic book series shows the type of society Rep. Matt Shea and his allies dream of rebuilding”
Today, Overstreet is an attorney for Security Services Northwest and Fort Discovery, two organizations run by a Joe D’Amico — a man who’s been tangled up with various legal and regulatory battles in Jefferson County for nearly 15 years. The latest conflict stems from D’Amico’s planned Cedar Hills Recreational Facility, a proposed 40-acre gun range and recreational facility on the Olympic Peninsula.
And at first, a group of property owners opposing the project formed the Tarboo Ridge Coalition, simply worried about the disruption from guns and helicopters.
But then, Tarboo President Scott Freeman says, his nephew stumbled across the 299 Days series. And they figured out that Tate had clearly based the character “Joe Tantori” on Joe D’Amico.
“Very, very quickly we realized the issue was much deeper,” Freeman says.
