Oregon Shooter, If you are referring to the training center operated by the state department of corrections, it was already closed as a training center when I was logging there in the early 70's. Seems like there was a fuss brought up where the complainers said the state had to pay full wages (and not deduct for room, board, etc) or they would be practicing slavery, or something equally nonsensical. We used to go by there with the crummy and they were just using it as a minimum security place then. Anyway, with the demise of the export market for logs, and the decrease in harvestable, available timber from efforts of the environmental whackos, it probably would been stopped not long after anyway. I haven't been back since I left in '74, so don't know if it ever got going again or not. NMSight

Well, the U of W Olympic Natural Resources Center is located there. Could that be what you're thinking of? [url]http://www.onrc.washington.edu/[/url]
