PA official seeks to address overtime Councilwoman cites staff costs that have risen 28% in 3 years BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — The city’s 2013 budget has been approved, but one city councilwoman said she still has issues with the increase in overtime staffing costs seen across the city’s departments over the past several years. During budget discussions at a

Dec. 4 City Council meeting, Sissi Bruch said she was concerned about the overtime costs. According to city figures, overtime costs are expected to be $363,800 in 2013 — a 28 percent increase from the roughly $283,000 spent in 2010. The cost of overtime is expected to increase 2.3 percent from this year to next.

Bruch said that she needed to see “those trends decrease, not increase.” In a later interview, she said she would have liked to Bruch have seen the overtime issue discussed more during the 2012 budget deliberations but said she understood why other issues took precedence.

Rep.-elect Kilmer talks roads, jobs Soon-to-be congressman says infrastructure matters BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — Departing U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks built his reputation as an advocate of local infrastructure projects, and his successor indicated that he wants to continue that tradition. “It’s not always the most exciting topic, but infrastructure really does matter when you are talking about the ability for private-sector job growth,” said Derek Kilmer, a professional economist who will be sworn in as Dicks’ successor Jan. 3.

‘Real difference-maker’


Congressman-elect Derek Kilmer, left, thanks supporters Monday in Port Townsend as Jefferson County Commissioner David Sullivan listens.

“It can be a real differencemaker as to whether a project moves forward or doesn’t move forward, or whether private business decides to make an investment or not,” he told Jefferson County commissioners Monday. At his first official North Olympic Peninsula meetings with a government agency since his election Nov. 6, Rep.elect Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor,


It’s not news to Northwesterners that most of the giant firs and cedars that once dominated the region’s forests are long gone, felled by decades of logging. But a review of ecosystems around the world finds that big trees are vanishing almost everywhere — and aren’t being replaced. “What we’re seeing is a global phenomenon,” said ecologist David

Lindenmayer of Australian National University, lead author of a paper published in last Friday’s edition of the journal Science. “There are different sets of drivers — it might be fire, logging, drought, disease — but they all lead to basically the same outcome.”




Kilmer is assembling his local office staff, which he promised “will provide strong access for every family and every business in this district.” TURN




Birds, reptiles, mammals The loss of big, old trees can be devastating to thousands of other species that take shelter in their branches, said University of Washington forestry professor Jerry Franklin, a co-author of the paper. In some forests, nearly a third of all birds, reptiles, mammals or marsupials make their homes in ancient trees, the scientists said.

Updates on two big projects on the east and west sides of the county — sewers for the Port Hadlock area and renovation of Hoh River Road — dominated that meeting. Afterwards, Kilmer met with supporters at the Cotton Building in Port Townsend. “Economic development happens on the ground in local communities,” Kilmer said after meeting with the commissioners. “My role as a member of Congress and my staff’s role will be very much focused on meeting with local businesses and determining how we can help them lay the foundation for job growth.”

PORT ANGELES — Clallam County has adopted a $31.3 million budget for 2013 that includes 16 furlough days for most workers but no new layoffs at the courthouse. The three commissioners approved the balanced budget — which sports a surplus of more than $300,000 — by unanimous vote Tuesday. “This is a reflection of a lot of hard work by a lot of people, everyone who oversees their departments and all the elected officials working through the process for six months,” Commissioner Mike Chapman said. County Administrator Jim Jones presented the budget in two public hearings Dec. 4. No public testimony was given in either hearing. TURN

Moscow’s Ms. Opera Cen- Vishnevskaya ter, which in 2007 Ms. Vishnevskaya created, said the singer died Tuesday in Moscow. It didn’t give the cause. Ms. Vishnevskaya joined Moscow’s Bolshoi Theater in 1952, making her debut as Tatiana in “Yevgeny Onegin.” She performed dozens of soprano roles in Russian and European opera classics. She made her Metropolitan Opera debut as Aida in 1961 and first sang Liu in “Turandot” in La Scala opera house in Milan, Italy, in 1964. From 1955 and until his death in 2007, Ms. Vishnevskaya was married to Rostropovich. They frequently performed together and used their star status in the Soviet Union to help friends

Yes in trouble, including writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn, whom they sheltered at their dacha when he was facing official reprisals. After Solzhenitsyn was expelled from the country, Ms. Vishnevskaya and Rostropovich left the Soviet Union with their two daughters in 1974. They lived in Paris and then Washington, D.C., and were stripped of their Soviet citizenship in 1978. They returned to Russia after the Soviet collapse and became involved in public activities and charitable work.

_________ KAREL VAS, 96, a prosecutor who came to symbolize unlawful trials during the post-1948 communist takeover of Czechoslovakia, has died, a government institute said Monday. The Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes announced Mr. Vas’ death but gave no details. Czech public television reported that Mr. Vas died Saturday in a home for retirees in Prague, where he had lived. During World War II, Mr. Vas began to collaborate with Soviet dictator Josef Stalin’s much-feared secret police, known as NKVD.

Historians said Mr. Vas one of the state prosecutors who played a key role in show trials that used fabricated evidence to hand out death sentences to opponents of the communist regime in Czechoslovakia. In 2001, Mr. Vas was sentenced to seven years in prison for his role in the case of a leading anti-Nazi fighter, Gen. Heliodor Pika, who was executed in 1949. Mr. Vas was accused of inserting a fake document into Pika’s file that served as evidence that he worked for British intelligence. But he escaped prison time because an appeals court canceled the verdict due to the statute of limitations.

Briefly: World Junta forces prime minister of Mali to leave BAMAKO, Mali — Soldiers arrested Mali’s prime minister and forced him to resign before dawn Tuesday, showing that the military remains the real power in this troubled West African nation despite handing back authority to civilians after a coup in March. The prime minister’s ouster comes as the United Nations considers backing a military intervention in Mali, a once-stable Diarra country now beset by violence from Islamic extremists. Prime Minister Cheikh Modibo Diarra, dressed in a dark suit and his forehead glistening with sweat, appeared on state television at 4 a.m. to announce his resignation, hours after soldiers stormed his house. Diarra, 60, is an astrophysicist who led NASA’s Mars exploration education program. He is now under house arrest, said a spokesman for the junta, Bakary Mariko.

Voter angst surfaces over ‘fiscal cliff’ crisis Standoff erodes Congress’ stature THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HOOKSETT, N.H. — Five hundred miles from Washington, D.C., the lunch crowd at Robie’s Country Store and Deli was filled with angst over America’s elected leaders and their latest struggle to prevent a fiscal crisis. “I don’t know if I know all the ins and outs,” said Kimberlee Roux of Manchester as she waited for her lunch order.

‘More serious’ “But I think this one’s more serious than the others,” she said. Indeed, unless Congress acts by year’s end, the nation will fall off a “fiscal cliff,” triggering tax increases for most Americans and spending cuts that economists warn could lead to another recession. Roux, a 50-year-old accountant, worries that spending cuts may affect her disabled brother’s benefits. From New Hampshire diners to Colorado coffeeshops, weary residents share Roux’s concerns. The scene playing out on Capitol Hill is a familiar one as lawmakers with competing ideologies wage an eleventh-hour battle to avert another predictable crisis. This one comes just a year after an equally divided Washington nearly let the country default


Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Ky., right, talks about a “fiscal cliff” strategy session. From left are Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., and Sen. John Thune, R-S.D. on its loan obligations — a debtceiling debate that led to a drop in the nation’s credit rating. A recent Associated Press-GfK poll found that 74 percent of Americans disapprove of the way Congress is handling its job; just 23 percent approve. In a campaign-style event this week in Michigan, Obama warned that he “won’t compromise” on his demand that the wealthiest Americans pay more in taxes. Polls find that most voters agree with the president’s deficitcutting plan to raise tax rates on

income over $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for couples, although House Republicans are reluctant to agree. The conservative group Crossroads GPS is running television ads across the country describing Obama’s solution as “a huge tax increase” with “no real spending reforms.” “Call President Obama and tell him it’s time to show us a balanced plan,” the ad says. Most voters interviewed in recent days seem willing to raise taxes on the wealthy so long as the middle class is protected.

AT LEAST TWO people were killed and many others were wounded at a Portland, Ore.-area mall by a man armed with a semiautomatic rifle. Clackamas County sheriff’s Sgt. James Rhodes said the shooter at Clackamas Town Center had been “neutralized.” When pressed on whether that meant the gunman had been shot or arrested, Rhodes said he did not have that information. Rhodes said there are multiple wounded and there are confirmed dead, but he gave no numbers. Emergency dispatchers received reports that a shooting had occurred near a Macy’s store at the mall.

THE UNIVERSITY OF Virginia was put on warning Tuesday by an accrediting panel that found indications the school broke governance rules in a failed attempt to oust the prestigious public school’s president this summer. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools’ Commission on Colleges will further study whether U.Va. was out of compliance with two of the association’s rules, commission President Belle Wheelan said. Wheelan’s group began looking at the actions of the school’s governing board after the intense media coverage of the attempted ouster of President Teresa Sullivan.

DELTA AIR LINES said it will buy almost half of Virgin Atlantic for $360 million as it tries to catch rivals in the lucrative New York-to-London travel market. Delta said it plans to form a joint venture with Virgin Atlantic so they can sell seats on each other’s flights, share the costs and profits, and set the flight schedules in ways that help both airlines. American Airlines has a similar deal with British Airways. Delta is aiming to have the joint operation running by the end of 2013. The deal won’t add flights. But travelers would be able to buy one ticket from, say, Lansing, Mich., on Delta and connect in New York to a Virgin flight to London.

Clinton is likely to announce that step today to the Friends of Syria group. Clinton also will meet with Moroccan King Mohammed VI to discuss the rise of al-Qaida-linked extremists in Mali.

Jobs, ‘trailing spouse’ mulled at meet PA chamber eyes challenges faced in Peninsula recruitment BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Geographic isolation and a lack of job opportunities for the “trailing spouse” are among the challenges faced by North Olympic Peninsula recruiters, a panel of employment experts told a Port Angeles business audience. With many people locked into an upside-down mortgage, it can be difficult to attract top professionals to a rural county like Clallam. “Let’s face it: There’s not a real active nightlife here, and a lot of young grads are

not willing to leave that behind,” said Cathy Price, human resources manager for Nippon Paper Industries USA Inc. mill in Port Angeles, during a panel discussion at Monday’s Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce luncheon. “Also, distance from the I-5 corridor seems to be a concern to a lot of folks. We get a lot of positive energy from people who have come from a similar small-town environment as opposed to the big city, who are outdoor people. “We do have a lot to offer, but it’s got to be the right

kind of person that wants that kind of environment.” Olympic Medical Center Human Resources Director Richard Newman said the public hospital district spends 61 percent of its budget on wages and benefits, considerably more than its counterparts on Puget Sound.

Higher expenditure “Being in a geographically separated area, it’s a little different for prices and cost of staffing,” Newman told about 60 chamber members at the Port Angeles Red Lion Hotel. “A lot of hospitals in the I-5 corridor have staffing agencies they can call on quickly. We aren’t able to do that. So at times, we have

extra staff because our census fluctuates quite a bit.” With 1,100 employees, OMC is the region’s largest employer. “A problem that we often have, and some of you might, is the trailing spouse,” Newman added. “We often have a great physician to offer [a job], but the trailing spouse really would like to do more than garden or hike.” Chamber Executive Director Russ Veenema agreed. “Pretty much every employer that I’ve talked with, the trailing spouse is an issue,” Veenema said. “Maybe we as a community can do a better job connecting people.” Invariably, prospective employees will ask about

ties, said his agency provides job training, coaching and transition services for people living with disabilities. “Many individuals with disabilities want to work, and they haven’t had opportunities because people don’t want to step out and try something different,” Toliver said. “Repeated studies and surveys and analysis show that individuals with disabilities can make good and safe workers.” Morningside, which has been in Port Angeles since 2000, has clients working for OMC, Pacific Office Equipment, Lee Shore Boats and other local businesses. “We match the interest and the ability of the person to the employer,” Toliver said. “We pre-screen and train the individual in your company on the job. . . . Our staff can train newly hired workers until they know the job, and in some cases, we will follow that person for as long as they are employed by you.” OMC also hires local employees, including registered nurses, dietary workers, housekeeping staff and office assistants. The nursing program at Peninsula College has been an asset to the hospital, Newman said. “Every year, we hire anywhere from two to six new grads for openings at our facility,” he said.

Trained talent But a lack of specialized training and small population base force OMC and Nippon to look elsewhere for skilled work. “Most of the professionals that we need at Nippon Paper Industries USA are not available in the local area,” Price said. “Most of those are various engineers, project engineers, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers — and they’re all in demand nationally. Currently, the U.S. isn’t graduating enough engineers, so we recruit those on a nationwide basis.” Nippon recently revamped its employment screening process, which led to an improvement in the quality of applicants, Price said. “We do hire entry-level labor and some of the skilled crafts at the local level,” she said. “We do have openings, and the ones we are having trouble filling are those professionals that don’t really exist at the local level.” Price said local workers currently are being trained to work at Nippon’s biomass cogeneration facility. The $71 million biomass expansion project is on schedule to launch next fall.

Pony up for ideal companion PONIES CAN MAKE wonderful playmates for children. I say “can� because many are willful, crafty little rascals that simply aren’t welltrained. If you’re thinking of gifting your child with a pony or horse — in my opinion one of the best gifts possible — please exercise wisdom by buying a well-trained pony that’s already proven itself good with children. Sugar was one such Shetland pony. She came into our lives in her 20s as a confidence booster for my niece, Brooke, then 8, after our other two ponies, Snowball Express and Goldie Boy, proved too willful for her to handle. Yes, other children had ridden both ponies before we bought them, but I quickly discovered that didn’t indicate they were obedient to their riders. Goldie’s always demonstrated himself a dream pony in every way except when he wants to eat, and he wants to eat all the grass he sees all the time. At the time, I didn’t know I could correct that problem by running baling twine from each side off his bit, up the bridle and attaching the end to the saddle horn. That contraption prevented him from pushing his nose forward, pulling the reins out of Brooke’s hands and putting his head down to eat.

Snowball Express earned the name Express because of his lightning-quick ability to scoot out from under his young rider, thus leaving a scared, crying youngster on the ground. After Brooke gained confidence on Sugar, she quickly gained the confidence and ability to control Snow and Goldie. Many readers probably know Brooke went on to become a champion barrel racer with Sequim High School’s equestrian team. Sugar also helped her younger brother, Wesley, gain confidence in the saddle. While he never had much desire to be a horseman, he did have a passion to be an adventurer like the fictional movie character Indiana Jones. Frequently, I’d see him in the backyard, dressed in his Indiana Jones hat and outfit, riding Sugar on some adventure through our big cedar and hemlock trees. My favorite memory is of him galloping little Sugar in the lower yard with his arms outstretched to each side, eyes up at the sky while grinning from ear to

Kilmer: ‘Looking for as many ports in the storm’ CONTINUED FROM A1 He did not say where, if any, field offices will be located in the 6th District, which sprawls across the Olympic Peninsula and extends through Kitsap County into Tacoma. The North Olympic Peninsula field office for Dicks in Port Angeles closes at the end of the month. On Monday, county project planner Joel Peterson briefed Kilmer on the Port Hadlock sewer project, which he said is essential to the economic development of East Jefferson County. CHARLIE BERMANT/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Sewer service Peterson said the lack of sewer service restricts TriArea growth, particularly the ability to provide affordable housing. “Habitat for Humanity is quite active in Port Townsend and Quilcene, but they have been unable to expand into Port Hadlock until we have an adequate sewer system,� Peterson said. “There are opportunities for affordable housing that are not met because we are all on septic systems.� Peterson said the sewer

would cost $37 million to construct; $14 million is acquired to date. He said the county has used the money for final design and expects to have finished construction documents by the end of 2013. Peterson said he is hoping to narrow the $23 million gap through applications to the state’s Public Works Trust Fund and with other capital requests — but federal help also is needed. “The key is to get as much grant funding as pos-

sible so we can lower the overall cost for the customers connecting to the system,� he said. Kilmer said he understood the predicament as Gig Harbor, where he lives, had to expand its capacity. “It’s a huge deal when a sewer system is at capacity,� he said. “You have three options: to declare a building moratorium, get funding to expand the capacity or ask people to stop flushing.� Kilmer promised his support for the

Hadlock project. “It’s a shame that sewers aren’t cheap, but they are important projects that have a lot of value for the economy and the environment,� he said. “You can consider me a partner, I am happy to look under every rock I can.� Kilmer also heard a presentation from county transportation planner Josh Peters about the Hoh River access road that provides the sole access from U.S. Highway 101 to the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic

National Park. The county is charged with the maintenance of 12 miles of road that leads into the national park. The stretch habitually is plagued by washouts that the county can’t afford to repair continuously, Peters said. “The Hoh Rain Forest is a unique place, right up there with Hurricane Ridge, Crescent Lake and Ocean Shores,� Peters said. “We used to have the money to do an immediate repair and keep the road open, but we no longer have the resources or the cash flow to make those repairs.�

been logged.� The county is seeking Kilmer’s support in an application for emergency relief funds, which would guarantee reimbursement in times of disaster. The application for the program is due Jan. 25, and Kilmer promised that he would write a letter of support even if he had to do so on hotel stationery. “I’m sworn in on the 3rd [of January], so I should have letterhead by the 25th,� he smiled. “We’ll work something out.� Kilmer, a former state legislator, suggested that the county seek state funds Seeking support that might be available for culvert repair or to repair Peters said the county is roads that are necessary for seeking federal support in economic development. the form of emergency funds to keep the road open, ‘Ports in the storm’ stating that doing so benefits the state, the economy “Your need is substantial and the tourist trade. enough that you may be “This is one of the only looking for as many ports in places that you can see a the storm as you can find,� true old-growth rain forest he said. and get an idea of how As of Tuesday, Kilmer things used to be,� said didn’t have an official meetCounty Commissioner ing scheduled with Clallam David Sullivan.

Budget: No new layoffs Overtime: 4/11 change CONTINUED FROM A1 The 2013 budget is the result of union negotiations that took place in late 2011. Employees agreed to nearly $1.8 million in wage concessions in both 2012 and 2013 in exchange for no layoffs.

Furlough days The concessions include an additional 16 unpaid furlough days, during which time most offices in the courthouse will be closed. Like this year, all of the furlough days will occur on a Monday. Clallam County cut spending from $31.2 million in 2012 to $30.9 million in the 2013 general fund for a projected surplus of $345,227. The budget preserves a $10.1 million reserve. The county has laid off or not hired back the equivalent of 32.72 full-time workers since 2009. It enters the new year with a 380-member workforce. Jones wrote in his budget summary that the weak economy continues to hold back revenues.

“Losses in revenue are mostly the result of cuts from the state in grants and contracts for services from last year’s budget, together with a significant reduction expected in fines and forfeits as traffic ticket collections continue to reduce,� he wrote.

Court security The 2013 budget adds two part-time security officers for the courts. A security committee recommended the enhanced coverage after a Grays Harbor County deputy was attacked at the courthouse in Montesano earlier this year. The budget has $1 million in one-time revenue from the transfer of real estate excise taxes from capital projects to the general fund. Every year, Jones notes the county’s net effect as an economic engine in his budget summaries. In 2013, the county will take $28.4 million out of the local economy from taxes, licences, permits, fines and fees. “At the same time, we’re putting back into the local economy $58.8 million in

this budget in the form of $22.3 million worth of salaries, $22.3 million worth of services that we’re contracting out to people to do services for us and $14.2 million of actual capital construction projects that we have planned in this budget,� Jones said in the second budget hearing last week. The net effect is a gain of $30.4 million for the economy. “That’s an important thing that people don’t realize,� Jones said. Chapman thanked Jones, Budget Director Kay Stevens and “all the department heads for shepherding us through this process to get to a balanced budget once again. “It continues to reflect the county’s spending priorities, our budgetary process and the good work of the entire county leadership team,� he said. “That leadership team for the budget starts from the newest employee on up to the Board of Commissioners. “It’s a budget we can be proud of.� The Clallam County budget can be reviewed at www.

worked in a single day to more than 11 hours worked, he added. Gallagher said he expects the new shift framework to start in January, with an eventual 40 percent to 60 percent decrease in overtime costs expected. Dispatchers at the communications division of the Police Department — or PenCom — recently shifted to a 12-hour-day, 42-hourworkweek schedule and have seen use of sick time cut in half because more days off per week is allowing dispatchers to live a healthier lifestyle, Gallagher said. “I think [the 4/11 change] will be good for the quality of life for police officers and for savings,� Gallagher said. “I’m pretty excited about it.� Gallagher tasked his commissioned officers to come up with a shift schedule that decreased costs and kept officers healthier, and said they spent the past year or so doing research and developing the 4/11 plan. Through this research, the officers found studies that showed longer periods of uninterrupted days off coupled with longer workdays are better for public safety personnel than shorter workdays and fewer days off, Gallagher explained. This officer-sourced approach is one of the main reasons Gallagher said he thinks the 4/11 plan will benefit the entire department. “It’s very likely we’re going to be successful when we make this change,� Gallagher said.



Tides, repairs snarl state ferry routes PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — It’s a tough week for the Washington State Ferries system. First, two more ferries are out of service this week because of mechanical problems, causing a commuter snarl on such popular runs as the Bremerton run to Seattle. And Mother Nature is making ferry life more difficult. Four runs between Port Townsend and Whidbey Island were canceled Tuesday because of low tides, and six scheduled runs will be canceled or delayed today. The two additional ferries forced out of service Monday and down for at least this week means the system now has five ferries on the shelf for repairs or maintenance. The smaller replacement boats can’t always carry the load, so a passenger-only ferry is being used

PT ferry changes LOW TIDES ON the route between Port Townsend and Coupeville will change ferry times today and through this week. Canceled today are Port Townsend departures at 5:15 a.m., 6:45 a.m. and 8:30 a.m., with replacement departures scheduled for 7:45 a.m. and 9:05 a.m. Departures from the Keystone landing near Coupeville also are canceled today, with two replacement runs scheduled.

A lot of the adjustments were called in by David Moseley, who as assistant transportation secretary is in charge of State Ferries, during his visit to Port Townsend on Monday. He met with ferry commuters after speaking at the noontime Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce luncheon. Moseley said his team scrambled to make this week’s adjustments. The biggest issue was with the MV Sealth. A routine inspection Friday spotted a leaky weld in the hull. The MV Klahowya also was pulled from service after a link between the engine and generator broke Saturday night.



CEO: Day-to-day activity unaffected

liams following the company’s Nov. 8 financial report in which it disclosed that it lost $381,296 on revenue of $2.1 million for the quarter ended Sept. 30. Ludlow Williams succeeded Ludlow as president and CEO of Intellicheck Mobilisa, based at 191 Otto St., in April 2011. Ludlow said Tuesday that he has been advised by attorneys not to discuss specifics of the case, including any possible relationship between the SEC probe and Williams’ departure. During a Nov. 8 conference call when the losses were announced, several stockholders expressed disappointment with the company, specifically its stock transactions that are the purview of the SEC.


PORT TOWNSEND — A Securities and Exchange Commission investigation of trading and security practices by Intellicheck Mobilisa will not affect the day-today operations of the high-tech ID-verification and wireless security company based in Port Townsend, the company’s president and CEO said Tuesday. “The company itself is not under investigation,� Nelson Ludlow said. “There were some questions about trades, and we asked the SEC to step in.� Mobilisa co-founder Ludlow took over as CEO from Steve Wil-

The scientists compared the decline of ancient trees with the decimation of tigers, whales and other large mammals. After decades of protection, many slow-growing species like the blue whale still are hovering on the brink of extinction, Lindenmayer pointed out. “The stakes are very high,� he said. “Big trees can be lost very quickly, but it can take centuries for them to be replaced.�

But there’s still no nationwide policy that singles out big, old trees for protection or works to ensure that young trees are able to replace their elders, he said. “We’re dramatically reducing the number of big trees,� Franklin said. “As part of our active management, we need to be planning to restore historic levels of those big, old trees.�

Premier’s worry VICTORIA — The $783 million price tag to bring sewage treatment to the Victoria area worries British Columbia Premier Christy Clark, she said in a TV interview this week. “Yes, I have had some concerns about it,” Clark told CHEK-TV News in an interview broadcast Monday. The B.C. government ordered treatment for the region in 2006 and officially signed on to provide a maximum of $248 million toward the project in July. But that money won’t be handed over until the project is completed in 2018. “Taxpayers deserve that kind of respect in what’s been a really tough economy,” Clark said. It’s unclear if Clark’s comments signal a shift away from the provincial government’s pledge. Victoria-area local governments are developing secondary sewage treatment to end the discharge of raw sewage into the Strait of Juan de Fuca from two outfalls. Peninsula Daily News

October 1, 1944 December 5, 2012 Harold James “Jim” Jacoby passed away suddenly December 5, 2012, from natural causes. He was born in Seattle, Washington, to Harold and Patricia (Murphy) Jacoby on October 1, 1944, and lived in the Wallingford District until marrying Mary Jane (Sennott) on June 10, 1967. Shortly after marrying, Jim attended and graduated from Huxley College at Western Washington University with a bachelor’s degree in environmental science. A lifetime interest in hunting, fishing and camping was further realized when he went to work for the University of Washington School of Forestry, running a research project on the Hoh River watershed shortly after graduation in 1975. Moving his family to Forks was a dream come true. Through economic ups and downs, the family stayed on in the West End, and Jim eventually went to work for the U.S. Forest Service as a fisheries biologist and forester,

Mr. Jacoby from which he retired in 2005. His interest in fishing and the environment and work experience led to his participation as a citizen and technical adviser to the North Pacific Coast Lead Entity for the Washington State Salmon Coalition for the past four years. An avid hunter and fisherman, Jim’s greatest joys were sharing with and teaching his grandchildren about the outdoors. Saltwater fishing with Mary (and until recently his mother) was another favorite pastime. Montana hunting trips with son Rick, grandson Jake and friends was another highlight of his life.

He also developed a keen interest in landscaping after retiring to their Bear Creek property and spent many hours in developing their retirement home and property. He was preceded in death by his father, Harold; mother Patricia; and sister Patricia Ann Stuart. He is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Mary; his son, Richard (Rick), and daughter-inlaw, Kathy; grandchildren Brooke and Jake of Forks; brother Daniel (Laura) Jacoby of Arlington, Washington; sisters Chris (Dennis) Jurus of Lynnwood, Washington, and Josephine (Macus) Minor; and numerous nephews, nieces and extended family in the Seattle area. A gathering of friends and families to celebrate Jim’s life will be scheduled this coming spring in one of the U.S. Forest Service campgrounds. Notice will be given at that time. The family requests that donations in Jim’s memory be made to the Quillayute Valley School District Scholarship Program in Forks. Arrangements were made by Drennan-Ford Funeral Home, Port Angeles.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Wednesday, December 12, 2012 PAGE


Fishing till the end of the world IT WAS DAYLIGHT on the water on a morning so cold that the river smoked. Downstream, the river disapPat peared into a Neal fog bank with an ominous roar below, giving one the impression that the earliest explorers might have been correct in their belief that if you went west far enough, you would fall off the end of the Earth. Which would be just my luck with the end-of-the-world thing looming in the day planner. This is not a new threat. Anyone who’s fished for steelhead for very long has faced doomsday

before — only we call it “The Emergency Fishing Closure.” The end of the world could be a good thing. We could fish all the closed waters with no bag limit, and finally keep a bull trout! No matter, we’ll fish hard until the end of the world. Nobody wants to face Armageddon with space left on the punch-card. I was fishing with my fancy friend, one of those big-city types with a tight drag and a hair trigger, jumping out of his chair like he got hit with a bug zapper. Suddenly, his rod went down. A big steelhead thrashed on the surface of the water. Our angler reefed back on the heavy gear with everything he had. You’d think a 10-pound fish didn’t have a chance, but they don’t call them steelhead for nothing.

They’re tough. Steelhead are just dumb animals, but according to catch-rate statistics, they are generally smarter than people. Half the people who fish for steelhead don’t catch one in a year of trying. Even if they hook one, the steelhead know what to do, swimming straight at the angler until they get enough slack in the line to let the hook fall out. If this doesn’t work, the steelhead comes to the surface shaking its head, causing our angler to pull even harder and jerk the hook free — then collapse in despair, asking that eternal question: “Why did I lose the fish?” They probably watched too many bass-fishing shows on which the dudes drag in the fish like they’re killing snakes. You can’t catch a steelhead like that.

It is better to give it line and be as gentle as you can so you don’t make the fish mad. Once upon a time, I was fishing below a busy logging road. It was back in the last century, a simpler time when loggers ruled the Earth. (The joke was that a log-truck driver would work for free if you just painted his name on the door, but I knew he’d rather be fishing — especially if he saw the 20-pound, chrome-bright hen steelhead on the end of my line. (Log-truck drivers would quit their jobs or blab that fish on the CB radio until the creek was so crowded, you’d have to bring your own rock to stand on by the next morning. (Just to be safe, every time a log truck went by, I pretended to be snagged up.) It had started raining. After a half-hour or so, I was


getting pretty soaked, but the fish was still on. I wasn’t going anywhere unless the fish did. By keeping the rod tip low, the fish stayed deep. The line came in by inches until the fish neared the beach. There was a lull between trucks. I was about to gently slide her onto the gravel bar when she rolled over and spat the hook. That big hen was a good lesson. Be gentle, play the fish easy and give her plenty of line. You’ll probably lose her anyway.

It’s on the Internet Some people are raving, “It was the people’s choice to re-elect Obama.” Nothing is mentioned that the majority of those people barely knew where to place their “X,” and they only knew they were voting for their freebies to con-

tinue or increase. While certain groups try to distract and confuse the general public who choose not to follow them as blind sheep, calling them racists or being prejudice to their demands, those groups and their leaders themselves are showing these traits. The names of God, Jesus Christ, the American flag and our Constitution have all come under attack by such groups, claiming all these are offensive to them. What is questionable here is the fact many of these groups never mention or complain about the Islam belief, and about the Koran being openly taught in many of our public schools, which also have rooms set aside for daily prayer times that disrupt classroom schedules. Many parents are unaware of this fact. Check out the Internet, and be enlightened. Shirley Berg, Sequim

The cost of maintaining Hurricane Ridge Road OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK claims that it’s too expensive keeping the Hurricane Ridge Road open weekdays. I am associated with Free Hurricane Ridge (its website: and have done some research into this matter. This is what I’ve learned: The $775,000 alleged cost to open the road 9 a.m. to dusk is twice the cost of the Baker Highway and Utah’s Little Cottonwood Canyon, two of the worst winter roads in North America.

employee who cleans the visitor center and restrooms and maintains the building’s water, electrical and heating systems. On Saturdays and Sundays, there are also two employees who provide visitor information and ranger-guided snowshoe walks. Additional volunteers from Olympic Mountain Rescue provide trail patrol, avalanche awareness and emergency response during search and rescue events. For the entire winter, the cost of providing these services Friday through Sunday at Hurricane Ridge — including salaries, equipment maintenance, fuel and supplies — is approximately $450,000. Additional services (ski lifts, equipment rentals, food service and souvenirs) are provided by park partners ARAMARK and the Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club. Given the current park budget and weekend popularity of Hurricane Ridge, providing visitor access on the three busiest days of the week makes good sense and compliments the variety of other recreational opportunities that Olympic National Park and the Olympic Peninsula offer.

Clallam PUD budget sees increasing rates Renewable energy, BPA upswing bring rise to water, sewer plans “BPA wholesales electricity to the PUD. “BPA has indicated it will raise wholesale rates, effective October 2013, by approximately 8 percent. “In addition, BPA has reduced the amount of funding it provides utilities for conservation efforts, yet mandated conservation efforts by the PUD must be increased as a result of the [state] Energy Independence Act [also known as Initiative 937, passed in 2006].” The statement added this warning: “The PUD has given many public presentations where it has committed to stable rates, though this may mean electric rate increases of up to 3 percent each year.”


SEQUIM — The three Clallam County Public Utility District commissioners have voted to approve 2013 budgets based tentatively on a rate increase of up to 3 percent for PUD power customers and a 6 percent hike for water users. The electricity expense budget totals $57.41 million, down from $57.92 million this year. The Water Department expense budget is $4.66 million, up from $3.74 million for 2012. The Sewer Department’s expense budget is $50,648, up from $49,724, with no rate increase for its wastewater customers. There was no breakdown immediately available on Water rate what the rate hikes would The 6 percent rate hike mean to the average PUD for Clallam PUD water users customer’s bill. would be effective next month.

back from the Legislature is sort of iffy,” Howe said. Howe gave a 25-minute presentation to the chamber’s audience on efforts to get state lawmakers to reverse the initiative’s exclusion of hydroelectric power as a source of renewable energy. He also discussed the requirement’s impacts on the PUD, whose primary function is distribution of electricity to county residents except those living in Port Angeles, which has a city-owned utility. The 2006 initiative, which had a voter majority in Clallam County, required utilities with 25,000 customers or more to purchase 3 percent of their energy from renewable sources such as wind and solar by 2012. It also requires that 9 percent be drawn from renewable sources by 2016 and 15 percent by 2020 — and there’s the rub. Clallam County PUD is the smallest utility in the state among more than a dozen that must comply with the initiative. Clallam PUD has endorsed an effort led by the Tri-Cities Regional Chamber of Commerce to amend the act. The PUD wants to be allowed to suspend the requirement for meeting the renewable-energy edict until its utility load growth requires it. Load growth was 2.1 percent in 2006. It is 0.8 percent in the recession reality of 2012. The hydroelectric power that Clallam PUD buys from BPA costs 3 cents per kilowatt. Howe said this compares with 14 cents a kilowatt for solar power, 12 cents for wind and 9 cents to 10 cents for biomass.

Sequim panel allows building-on BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — A new city ordinance will allow some buildings to be just a bit taller. But the new height cannot be part of the building structures themselves, the City Council decided in a 5-1 vote this week. Under the new ordinance, a small terrace roof, elevator towers, heating and air-conditioning systems, and solaror wind-powered equipment that exceed the city’s commercial building height code of 35 feet will be allowed. The rooftop terrace covering may be no more than 256 square feet in area or 12 feet tall, and cover no more than 5 percent of the roof area. Other rooftop equipment must be set back from the edge of the building to reduce its appearance from the

street or other buildings, according to the new ordinance. Councilman Erik Erichsen voted against the ordinance, citing concerns that the addition to the city building code will provide a backdoor for taller construction in

the future. Other council members said they shared Erichsen’s concerns but felt confident that the newly allowed exceptions would not be widely adopted because not all rooftop designs are conducive to such uses.

Wolves edge Kingston Sequim earn league win as many players chip in BY LEE HORTON PENINSULA DAILY NEWS


Sequim’s Tim Guan, left, charges into Hans Shippers of Kingston and draws an offensive foul during the Wolves’ Olympic League victory Monday night.

SEQUIM — Sequim needed a full team effort to beat Kingston 53-47 on Monday night. The Wolves had enough players contribute that they were able to overcome the illness a few others were dealing with. “The word collective is a good way to describe that win,” Sequim coach Greg Glasser said. In his first start, senior Andrew Shimer scored 15 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, and defensively helped slow Kingston’s Hans Shippers in the second half. Shippers finished with 19 points for the Buccaneers, but only three came in the second half. Shimer’s good play didn’t necessarily surprise Glasser, but the outside shooting was unexpected. “He’s always working hard for us. He understands the game real well,” Glasser said. “I thought he knew his limitations, but tonight he really tested the boundaries a little bit and stepped outside, but it worked out for us tonight.”

Tim Guan finished with seven points, including four of the game’s most important. With Sequim trailing by a point with under three minutes to play, Guan scored consecutive baskets to give the Wolves a 50-47 lead that they wouldn’t relinquish. Sequim also had important contributions from leading scorers Gabe Carter and Jayson Brocklesby. During a crucial stretch in the second quarter, the two seniors combined for a 9-2 run that ended a long scoring drought and flipped a six-point deficit into a one-point lead. Carter and Brocklesby also played big roles in the Wolves’ strong finish to the third quarter. Sequim was down 37-32 with less than two minutes remaining in the period before Carter scored the Wolves’ next eight points — two 3-pointers that sandwiched a layup off a steal by Anthony Pinza — to tie the game at 40. With one second remaining in the quarter, Brocklesby scored and was fouled. TURN



Redskins blow out North Mason PT earns first league win with 53-38 rout PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — Port Townsend notched its second straight win with a 53-38 rout of North Mason on Monday night. The Redskins’ season was off to a rough start after losing big in their first three games to Sequim, Kingston and Olympic. But Port Townsend finally earned its first win on Saturday against Crosspoint Academy, and now is on a winning streak after Monday’s win. “I’m really proud of them because they rebounded [from losses],” Redskins coach Tom Webster said of his team. “They played excellent against Crosspoint, and then followed up with this game. “Now we’re trying to build on these wins. The key to winning seasons is getting consecutive wins.” Port Townsend (1-3, 2-3) put in an all-around effort to beat the Bulldogs. The Redskins’ defense held North Mason to 21 points in the first three quarters, which built

Webster said. Blowing out North Mason (1-3, 1-5) came as a bit of a surprise to Webster “They’re pretty good, we just played really good,” he said. TURN

Cowboys player death raises question of safety net THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

IRVING, Texas — San Francisco 49ers defensive end Demarcus Dobbs walked away from a one-vehicle accident on his 25th birthday last month and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. Less than two weeks later, with the NFL rocked by the car crash that killed Dallas Cowboys player Jerry Brown and left his teammate, Josh Brent, facing a manslaughter charge, Dobbs swears he’ll find another way home whenever he does too much partying. “I’m never going to put myself in that situation ever again,” he said. This is, of course, exactly what the NFL, its teams and the players’ union wants to hear amid fresh questions about whether all the warnings and safety nets — because players in most of the major sports leagues arguably have more than the general public — will ever be enough to pre-

vent accidents and deaths. “There’s a lot of pressure being in the NFL . . . but it’s no excuse for bad decisions,” Detroit coach Jim Schwartz said. “Players have a lot of options, tools at their disposal, that they need to take advantage of, but it comes down to individuals making good decisions.” Brown’s death on Saturday and the arrest of defensive tackle Josh Brent after police say he caused the fatal wreck by speeding and driving drunk put the NFL Players Association’s safe ride program back in the spotlight. It was revamped three years ago after concerns that enough players weren’t using it. Union spokesman Carl Francis said the program is a strong point of emphasis, and every player’s membership card includes the contact information. And CEO John Glavin of Florida-based Corporate Security Solutions Inc., which runs the program, said he is happy with how the union gets

NFL the word out on the program. He also stressed the confidentiality of the program, saying the company doesn’t even tell the union when players call for rides. Jacksonville cornerback CB Rashean Mathis, the team’s union representative, said players rarely, if ever, use the program. “Confidentiality is the problem,” Mathis said. “Guys are going to go out and have fun. We’re just like the regular guy that works a 9-to-5 job. On a Friday night, he goes out and has some beer. It’s not the best-case scenario, but it happens in life.” To use the program, players can either work in advance to set up a full night with a driver or make a call for a ride home. The brochure says most response times are less than an hour. The program is available all year, and Glavin said his company also serves the NBA and NHL.

In Major League Baseball, designated drivers are available to players and fans through the teams, and the players have access to a confidential program that will take them wherever they need to go. In the NFL, some teams rely solely on the NFLPA’s program, while others have an additional system. In Cincinnati, the Bengals pay a company to make two drivers available when an employee calls. One drives the caller home, and the other follows in the employee’s vehicle. Glavin said some players hesitate to use that kind of program because they don’t want others driving their expensive vehicles. Either way, the program hinges on a player making the first move. “We can’t make them make the phone call,” Glavin said. Last summer, the NFL held its 15th annual rookie orientation, which includes a number of life skills sessions. For the first time, separate sessions were held for

the AFC and NFC to make the groups smaller, and current and former players were brought in as speakers, including Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick and Cincinnati cornerback Adam Jones. Both have had high-profile legal problems, with Vick spending time in prison in a dogfighting case. The NFL has sessions on issues ranging from guns to alcohol and drug use at other times of the years, and all teams have counselors who work with players, league spokesman Dan Masonson said. League owners are gathering in the Dallas area today. The agenda was set to focus in part on player safety through the addition of leg padding, but it’s likely to change. A week before Brown’s death, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher fatally shot his girlfriend before driving to the team’s stadium and shooting himself in front of his coach and general manager.

ered several options as a stopgap at third, including Jeff Keppinger and Mark Reynolds, but both accepted deals with other teams. Youkilis played third base and first base last season for the Red Sox and Chicago White Sox. He was traded to the White Sox last June as Boston’s new management reshaped the Red Sox roster. There was friction from the start of the season, when first-year manager Bobby Valentine questioned Youkilis’ commitment — Dustin Pedroia publicly stood up for his longtime teammate, yet it seemed clear Youkilis’ days in Boston were numbered.

NEW ORLEANS — In a sharp rebuke to his successor’s handling of the NFL’s bounty investigation, former Commissioner Paul Tagliabue overturned the suspensions of four current and former New Orleans Saints players in a case that has preoccupied the league for almost a year. Tagliabue, who was appointed by Commissioner Roger Goodell to handle the appeals, still found that three of the players engaged in conduct detrimental to the league. He said they participated in a performance pool that rewarded key plays — including hard tackles — that could merit fines. But he stressed that the team’s coaches were very much involved. “My affirmation of Commissioner Goodell’s findings could certainly justify the issuance of fines. However, this entire case has been contaminated by the coaches and others in the Saints’ organization,� the ruling said. Tagliabue oversaw a second round of player appeals to the league in connection with the cash-for-hits program run by former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams from 2009-2011. The players initially opposed his appointment.

Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma had been given a full-season suspension, while defensive end Will Smith, Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita and free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove each received shorter suspensions. Tagliabue cleared Fujita of conduct detrimental to the league. Saints quarterback Drew Brees offered his thoughts on Twitter: “Congratulations to our players for having the suspensions vacated. “Unfortunately, there are some things that can never be taken back.� None of the players sat out any games because of suspensions. “They have been allowed to play while appeals are pending, though Fujita is on injured reserve and Hargrove is not with a team. Shortly before the regular season, the initial suspensions were thrown out by an appeals panel created by the league’s collective bargaining agreement. Goodell then reissued them, with some changes,

and now those have been dismissed. Now, with the player suspensions overturned, the end could be near for a nearly 10-month dispute over how the NFL handled an investigation that covered three seasons and gathered about 50,000 pages of documents.

NFL’s response “We respect Mr. Tagliabue’s decision, which underscores the due process afforded players in NFL disciplinary matters,� the NFL said in a statement. “The decisions have made clear that the Saints operated a bounty program in violation of league rules for three years, that the program endangered player safety, and that the commissioner has the authority under the [NFL’s collective bargaining agreement] to impose discipline for those actions as conduct detrimental to the league. “Strong action was taken in this matter to protect player safety and ensure that bounties would be eliminated from football.�

NEW YORK — Kevin Youkilis is about to get a different look at the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry. The hard-nosed Youkilis, who helped personify Boston’s championship teams over the past decade, on Tuesday became the latest former Red Sox star to switch sides and land in Bronx. The free agent reached a deal that filled New York’s immediate need for a third baseman to fill in for injured Alex Rodriguez. The one-year contract for $12 million is pending a physical. A person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press about the agreement under condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made. Youkilis, who turns 34 in March, is expected to play third base while Rodriguez recovers from hip surgery. A-Rod plans to have the operation in mid-January and could be sidelined until the All-Star break or beyond. A three-time All-Star, Youkilis will get an early look at his old club. The Red

Sox are set to open next season at Yankee Stadium on April 1. Johnny Damon, Roger Clemens and Wade Boggs are among the Boston stars who wound up in pinstripes in recent times. Of course, the most famous player to make that move was Babe Ruth. For years, Youkilis was among the more popular players at Fenway Park — scruffy and intense, Boston fans loved how he battled the Yankees. Youkilis and Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain had their own feud that exemplified the ill will between the clubs — the inside fastballs that caused the trouble between them tapered off in recent seasons and now they’re set to become teammates. Minus Rodriguez for several months, the Yankees tried to find a fill-in. They made the offer to Youkilis last week at the baseball winter meetings. The agreement was first reported by Fox Sports. Eric Chavez, A-Rod’s backup for most of last season, joined Arizona last week. The Yankees consid-

Carroll says blowout handled properly coming our way. It was a terrific day for us, but I understand, I get it.� Seattle’s romp was one of the biggest shutout victories in NFL history. According to STATS, LLC, with game information back to 1950, only New England (59-0 over Tennessee in 2009) and the Los Angeles Rams (59-0 over Atlanta in 1976) posted larger shutout wins. And Seattle’s victory very easily could have been worse. The Seahawks (8-5) kicked short field goals twice in the third quarter and set a new franchise record for most points scored on Leon Washington’s 3-yard touchdown run with 2:32 remaining. That late touchdown led to some criticism of Carroll.


RENTON — One thing Pete Carroll learned in his nine years at Southern California was how to handle blowouts. Once the Trojans got rolling in the middle of the past decade, there were plenty of lopsided scores. So when he faced another blowout situation in the NFL on Sunday in Seattle’s 58-0 rout against Arizona, Carroll felt his team handled the sometimes uneasy situation in proper fashion. “You either have a sense for it or you don’t and I do. I’m tuned in,� Carroll said. “I do know that it looks like the score just keeps going. “[Sunday] was a day where the ball just kept

Seahawks “Every situation we talked through. What you’re trying to do, and here is probably the key, what you’re trying to do is make first downs. You’re trying to get first downs and keep the football, with the sensitivity of the situation,� Carroll said. “You know you’re going to run the football like crazy, which was awesome and we love to do that. “We got a lot of things done yesterday and unfortunately on the other side that was a very hard day for those guys. I get it.�

Flynn got in One of Carroll’s goals was to get backup quarter-

back Matt Flynn some significant playing time in the second half after spending the entire season on the bench behind Russell Wilson. For the final 25 minutes of the second half, Wilson got to be a spectator while Flynn played for the first time since Week 17 of last season with Green Bay. Flynn threw nine times during the span of four drives in the third and fourth quarters. Six of the nine passes were called “short� by the official game book, and the one curious decision was Flynn’s throw to the end zone on fourth-and-23 from the Arizona 33 halfway THE ASSOCIATED PRESS through the fourth quarter.

NEW YORK — Braylon Edwards is back with the New York Jets — a week after bashing them. The veteran wide receiver was awarded to New York off waivers from Seattle on Tuesday as the Jets try to bolster their injured receiving corps with a familiar face. Edwards, waived by Seattle on Monday, developed a good rapport with Sanchez in helping New York to consecutive trips to the AFC title game in 2009 and 2010. Edwards reiterated his feelings for Sanchez last week when he took to Twitter and criticized the Jets organization. With coach Rex Ryan

contemplating whether Sanchez would remain the starting quarterback or be replaced by third-stringer Greg McElroy, Edwards wrote on Twitter last Tuesday that people shouldn’t blame Sanchez.

Backs Sanchez “I played there,� he wrote. “Blame the idiots calling shots. Mark is a beast and will [prove] it when given a proper chance.� He tweeted an apology later that day for his “emotional outburst,� and added: “Mark is a friend and former teammate, who I wholeheartedly support. “Nonetheless, I have disrespected and insulted an administration that I have

the utmost respect for.� A week later, all was apparently forgiven and forgotten. Edwards had already changed his Twitter avatar to a picture of him smiling in a Jets uniform less than an hour after being claimed off waivers. “It feels great to be going home,� he wrote on Twitter. “Thanks to all of jet nation that continuously supported me and pushed for me. I’m back and it’s go time.� Edwards was released Monday from the Seahawks’ injury-reserve list after less than one unproductive season in Seattle. He had just eight catches for 74 yards and a touchdown in 10 games after signing a oneyear deal in July.

Michigan lawmakers OK right-to-work legislation Foes say the bill will bust unions THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan Legislature gave final approval Tuesday to a bitterly contested right-towork plan limiting the power of unions, a devastating and onceunthinkable defeat for organized labor in a state considered a cradle of the movement. Unswayed by Democrats’ pleas and thousands of protesters at the state Capitol, the House approved two final bills, sending them to Republican Gov. Rick Snyder. One bill dealt with public sector workers, the other with government employees. Both measures cleared the Senate last week. Snyder is expected to sign them into law as early as today. Michigan would be the 24th state with right-to-work laws, which ban requirements that nonunion employees pay unions for negotiating contracts and other services. Supporters said they give workers more choice and boost economic growth, but critics said the real intent is to weaken organized labor. Democrats offered a series of amendments, one of which would have allowed a statewide referendum. All were swiftly rejected. “This is the nuclear option,” Rep. Doug Geiss, a Democrat from Taylor. “This is the most divisive issue that we have had to deal with. And this will have repercussions.” Protesters in the gallery chanted, “Shame on you!” as the measures were approved. Union backers clogged the hallways and grounds shouting, “No justice, no peace,” and hundreds of protesters flooded the state Capitol hours before the House and Senate con-

Valerie Constance, a Wayne County Community College District developmental reading instructor and member of the American Federation of Teachers, sat on the Capitol steps with a sign shaped like a tombstone. It read: “Here lies democracy.”

‘A very sad day’ “I do think this is a very sad day in Michigan history,” said Constance, 57. Sue Brown, a 50-year-old pipefitter from Midland, and her 26-year-old daughter Tracy Brown, a chemical plant worker in Hemlock, held handwritten signs disparaging the governor, who last week announced support for the measures. “It’s disgraceful,” said Sue Brown, who said she’s not a union member but feared right-to-work laws would lower wages for all.

Sen. John Proos, a Republican from St. Joseph who voted for the right-to-work bills, said opponents had a right to voice their anger but predicted it would fade as the shift in policy brings more jobs to Michigan. “As they say in sports, the atmosphere in the locker room gets a lot better when the team’s winning,” he said. In an interview with WWJ-AM, Snyder said the intention is to give workers a choice, not to target unions. “This is about being pro-worker,” Snyder said. But foes of the law, including President Barack Obama, are trying to keep the spotlight on this latest battleground in the war over union rights. “People don’t understand the labor movement,” said protester Sharon Mowers, 54, of Lansing, a United Auto Workers member and General Motors employee. “They don’t understand the sacrifices people made to get us to this point.”

DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 14 years to a man who had two failed marriages. I never felt insecure in my married life until I read his answers to a Yahoo Answers poll that asked, “Do you dream about the one that got away?” and, “Have you found the love of your life?” My husband responded that he thinks about her very often, especially on her birthday and Valentine’s Day. To the other question, he replied he had found the love of his life, but the relationship had ended in divorce, which he admitted was his fault. I know he was talking about his first wife. I feel so sad and insecure. Now, I must deal with the fact that on Valentine’s Day, his thoughts are with someone else. How can I get over this? I no longer believe him when he says he loves me because I have proof that he hasn’t moved on yet. I can’t believe he said that even now, he still thinks about her. Please help.

DEAR ABBY business. He had planned to move Van Buren here but was unable to sell his home. We used to see each other every two weeks, but no longer. It has been almost two months. He calls once a week, but nothing else. We have been close, and he has shared his life, his worries and personal information with me. I haven’t pressured him, and I don’t need a commitment now, though I would like one someday. Abby, he seems to be drifting away. Is it OK to write to him, email him, send encouraging notes once a week and continue to support him? Is it too much to ask for more frequent communication from him? I have offered to travel the 1,000 miles, but he has evaded my offer. I’m not ready to walk away. We have been great together, and this is difficult for me. Advice? Holding On in Coastal California


Dear Sad Heart: Your husband posted those thoughts on a public forum? Rather than feel hurt and insecure, you should be furious. How would he feel if the person answering that poll had been you? (Of course, you would have had better judgment.) By now, it should be clear to you that you did not marry a rocket scientist. You have my sympathy because his first marriage has been over for nearly two decades, and he — along with his obvious shortcomings — are no longer her problem but yours. However, your pain may lessen if you look at the bright side: He treats you well 363 days a year, and many of the women who write to me are not so lucky.

Fun ’n’ Advice

Dear Holding On: It’s fine to be supportive, but don’t overwhelm him right now. You may have to let this play out in its own time. Your friend may have retreated because he’s concentrating his energy on reviving his business. He may be licking his wounds, or he may have met someone, which is why he discouraged your visit. That he still calls you is encouraging. Because you have known him for two years, I recommend you simply ask him if he’s met someone else. If the answer is no, it will put your mind at ease. But if the answer is yes, at least you’ll be clear about what happened.

The sale will be made without warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances on the 11th day of January, 2013. The defaults referred to in paragraph III must be cured by the 31st day of December, 2012 (11 days before the sale date), to cause a discontinuance of the sale.

VII. The Trustee whose name and address are set forth below will provide in writing to anyone requesting it, a statement of all costs and fees due at any time prior to the sale. VIII. The effect of the sale will be to deprive the Grantor and all those who hold by, through or under the Grantor of all their interest in the above described property. IX. Anyone having any objection to the sale on any grounds whatsoever will be afforded an opportunity to be heard as to those objections if they bring a lawsuit to restrain the sale pursuant to RCW 61.24.130. Failure to bring such a lawsuit may result in a waiver of any proper grounds for invalidating the Trustee’s sale. X. NOTICE TO OCCUPANTS OR TENANTS.

Pursuant to the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act of 2009, a tenant or subtenant in possession of the property that is purchased at the trustee’s sale, under any bona fide lease entered into before the notice of foreclosure, has the right to occupy the property until the end of the remaining term of the lease, except that the purchaser (or a successor in interest) who will occupy the property as a primary residence may terminate the lease by giving written notice to the tenant at least ninety (90) days before the effective date of such notice. The purchaser (or a successor in interest) may give a written notice to a tenant to vacate the property at least ninety (90) days before the effective date of such notice to a bona fide monthto-month tenant or subtenant in possession of the property, or a tenant or subtenant in possession of the property without a bona fide lease. A lease or tenancy shall be considered bona fide only if: (1) the tenant is not the mortgagor/grantor or the child, spouse, or parent of the mortgagor/grantor under the foreclosed contract/Deed of Trust; (2) the lease or tenancy was the result of an arms-length transaction; and (3) the lease or tenancy requires the receipt of rent that is not substantially less than fair market rent for the property or the rent is reduced or subsidized due to a Federal, State, or local subsidy.
