Steim in jail again Tsunami Monitoring bracelet detected alcohol BY TOM CALLIS PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Amber Steim, accused of vehicular homicide while allegedly driving drunk, was booked into the Clallam County jail Wednesday after a court-ordered bracelet monitor detected alcohol consumption. Clallam County Superior Court Judge Ken Williams set bail at $500,000, five times higher than her last bail posted 10 days after the March 6 wreck on state Highway 112 that killed 44-year-old Ellen J. Debondt of Crescent Beach. Steim, 24, of Port Angeles is charged with driving with a blood-alcohol level nearly three times over the legal limit when she crossed the center line east of Joyce and hit Debondtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicle head-on, killing her at the scene. Steim is also charged with witness tampering for allegedly phoning her mother and a friend from jail and asking them to say she drank alcohol after the wreck because she was in pain.

Hearing before release Williams on Wednesday ordered that a court hearing must be held before Steim can be released on bail as she awaits a Feb. 13 trial on the two charges. She was prohibited from consuming alcohol as part of the conditions of her last release from jail. The alcohol monitoring bracelet reported that Steim had a peak bloodalcohol level of 0.058 percent Oct. 30. Williams found Dec. 8 after a earlier hearing that the state â&#x20AC;&#x153;met its burden by a preponderance of the evidence . . . that it is more likely than unlikely that

PORT ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The first piece of debris that could be identified as washing up on the West Coast from the March 11 tsunami in Japan â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a large black float â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was found on a Neah Bay beach two weeks ago, Seattle oceanographers Curtis Ebbesmeyer and Jim Ingraham said Tuesday night. Since then, the two researchers, known as DriftBusters Inc. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who have used flotsam to track wind and water currents in the Pacific since 1970 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have learned that the black, 55-gallon drumsized floats also have been found on Vancouver Island. Ebbesmeyer and Ingraham spoke to more than 100 people at Peninsula College and brought the float with them, along with examples of other items that may be showing up on beaches in the next year. Tons of debris washed out to sea when a tsunami struck northern Japan after a massive magnitude-9.0 earthquake March 11. About a quarter of the 100 million tons of debris from Japan is expected to make landfall on beaches from southern Alaska to California, possibly in volumes large enough to clog ports, Ebbesmeyer said. Using models from a historic shipwreck that occurred 20 miles off Neah Bay, Ebbesmeyer



and Ingraham have determined the path of debris that comes into that area off the Washington coast.

All along Strait They said debris will be snagged by currents leading into the Strait of Juan de Fuca and that a large portion of it will end up on beaches from the mouth of the Elwha River to Port Townsend. Many ocean models have shown that the massive congregation of flotsam that washed away from devastated Japanese coastal cities is in the middle of the Pacific and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make landfall in the U.S. for another year or two. Most of it is exactly where those models predicted, but those models donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take into account wind and flotsam with large areas exposed to the wind, said Ebbesmeyer, who became famous for his and Ingrahamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ocean research into currents after large spills of Nike shoes and bath toys from container ships in the 1990s. Flotsam in a current travels an average of seven miles per hour, but it can move as much as 20 mph if it has a large area exposed to the wind, he said. TURN



What are the odds? Agnew grocery serves as site for lottery ad BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Store owner Chris Frankfurth on Tuesday morning turned over the better part of his parking lot at 2863 Old Olympic Highway to director Tony Fulghan and the film crew of World Famous of Seattle to shoot the ad. Jean Flynn, state lottery

Taylor’s gems set record for $115 million ELIZABETH TAYLOR’S JEWELRY collection fetched a record-setting $115 million — including more than $11.8 million for a pearl necklace and more than $8.8 million for a diamond ring given to her by Richard Burton — at an auction of gems and other memorabilia amassed by the late actress. The 33.19-carat diamond ring given to Taylor by the actor she married twice sold for $8,818,500. The pearl, diamond and ruby necklace, known as “La Peregrina,” purchased at auction for $37,000 in 1969 by Burton for Taylor reached the world record price of $11,842,500. It was estimated to sell for $2 million to $3 million. The price surpassed the previous auction record for a pearl, set in 2007 at Christie’s auction house in New York City with the sale of The Baroda Pearls for $7,096,000. The ring, estimated to sell for $2.5 million to $3.5 million, was included in a collection of Taylor’s necklaces, earrings, pendants and rings and other gems that went on sale Tuesday night at Christie’s in New York. The ring was purchased

by a private buyer from Asia, according to a Christie’s spokesman.

A3 Briefly: Nation Time selects ‘The Protester’ ‘Person of Year’ NEW YORK — “The Protester” has been named Time’s “Person of the Year” for 2011. The selection was announced Wednesday on NBC’s “Today” show. The magazine cited dissent across the Middle East that has spread to Europe and the United States and said these protesters are reshaping global politics. Time said it is recognizing protesters because they are “redefining people power” around the world. Time’s “Person of the Year” is the person or thing that has most influenced the culture and the news during the past year for good or for ill.

Business past WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said his business background makes him a better presidential candidate than Newt Gingrich, who has spent decades in Washington. But the argument is not moving Republicans his way, underscoring Romney’s challenge in finding a way to stem Gingrich’s rise three weeks before the Iowa caucus, a new Associated PressGfK poll finds. The AP-GfK nationwide poll of Republicans found Gingrich with an edge over Romney as the candidate they’d like to see win the nomination. Republicans are evenly

divided on whether a Washington insider or outsider is bestsuited to be president. The poll also found a significant drop in satisfaction with the overall field of Republicans vying to challenge President Barack Obama next year. In October, 66 percent of Republican adults were satisfied with the field, and 29 percent unsatisfied. Now, 56 percent are satisfied and 40 percent unsatisfied.

Google fights slavery SAN FRANCISCO — Tech giant Google announced Wednesday it is donating $11.5 million to several coalitions fighting to end the modern-day slavery of some 27 million people around the world. In what is believed to be the largest-ever corporate grant devoted to the advocacy, intervention and rescue of people being held, forced to work or provide sex against their will, Google said it chose organizations with proven records in combating slavery. The Washington-based International Justice Mission, a human-rights organization that works globally to rescue victims of slavery and sexual exploitation, was chosen by Google to lead the efforts. It will partner with Polaris Project and Slavery Footprint and a handful of smaller organizations for the multiyear effort that will send help overseas, as well as raise awareness in the United States.

Briefly: World Conjoined twins separated in 20-hour surgery SANTIAGO, Chile — Chilean doctors separated conjoined twin girls early Wednesday after a marathon 20-hour surgery followed on television and the Internet. The 10-month-old twins are in stable condition even after losing a lot of blood during the operation at Luis Calvo Mackenna Hospital. It was the seventh and most complex operation yet for the twins. The Chilean twins presented a particularly difficult challenge because they were born sharing many of the same internal organs and even urinary system. About 100 people participated in the procedure.

Body found in Belgium LIEGE, Belgium — The body of a woman has been found in the garage of the man who lobbed hand grenades and fired weapons into crowds in the Belgian city of Liege, killing four people and wounding 123, officials said Wednesday. Liege Prosecutor Daniele Reynders said the body of a woman in her 40s was discovered during a search of Nordine Amrani’s property, and that she was killed before Tuesday’s murderous spree at Liege’s main square. “It was a cleaning lady. This is how she met him yesterday

morning,” Reynders said. “She dies, shot with a bullet in the head.” Reynders said Amrani, 33, died in Tuesday’s attack in an apparent suicide. It remained unclear what motivated the attack. Reynders said that after searches of Amrani’s house, terrorism could be excluded as the driving force.

Japan nuclear plant TOKYO — Japan is poised to declare its crippled nuclear plant virtually stable nine months after a devastating tsunami, but the facility still leaks some radiation, remains vulnerable to earthquakes and shows no prospect for cleanup for decades. Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda said last week that temperatures inside the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant’s three melted reactor cores are almost consistently below the boiling point and radiation leaks have significantly subsided — two key conditions in a hoped-for “cold shutdown.” Officials said the government is expected to hold a news conference Friday to declare something close to cold shutdown, though experts caution it will be, at best, a tenuous stability. The declaration would mark a step forward for the operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co., which has struggled to control the plant after it was damaged in a huge earthquake and tsunami March 11.

Congressional Democrats may drop tax try on wealthy THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Democrats may jettison their demand for higher taxes on millionaires as part of legislation to extend Social Security tax cuts for most Americans, officials said Wednesday as President Barack Obama and Congress struggled to clear critical year-end bills without triggering a partial government shutdown. Republicans, too, signaled an eagerness to avoid gridlock and adjourn for the holidays. With a massive, $1 trillion funding bill blocked by Democrats, GOP lawmakers and aides floated the possibility of a backup measure to keep the government

in operation for several days after the money runs out Friday night. The rhetoric Wednesday was biting at times. “We have fiddled all year long, all year,” the Republican leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, complained in a less-than-harmonious exchange on the Senate floor with Majority Leader Harry Reid. McConnell accused Democrats of “routinely setting up votes designed to divide us . . . to give the president a talking point out on the campaign trail.” Reid shot back that McConnell had long ago declared Obama’s defeat to be his top priority. At issue now are three year-

end bills that Obama and leaders in both parties in Congress say they want. One would extend expiring Social Security payroll tax cuts and benefits for the long-term unemployed, provisions at the heart of Obama’s jobs program. Another is the $1 trillion spending measure that would lock in cuts that Republicans won earlier in the year. The third measure is a $662 billion defense bill setting policy for military personnel, weapons systems and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, plus national security programs in the Energy Department.

AN OREGON STATE trooper was giving chase at more than 100 mph when suspects in the car ahead ripped open half-pound bags of marijuana and began flinging it out of the window. The pot was “pelting my car” as the chase continued north Monday night along Interstate 5 toward Eugene, Trooper Clay Core said. Officers detained two Washington state men on several charges, including tampering with evidence. Five pounds of pot was retrieved, Core said. Officers worked Monday night and Tuesday morning to make sure they picked up all of it.

POLICE IN THE village of Liberty in upstate New York said officers used math homework to track down a 12-year-old boy suspected of breaking into an auction house Saturday night. The owner said he arrived Sunday morning and discovered that a window had been removed and jewelry, cellphones, video games and other items had been stolen from his business. Police said homework with the suspect’s name on it was found in the woods behind the auction house. The youth has been charged with burglary. His case is being handled in Sullivan County Family Court.

if they have a question about a charge on their bill or any aspect of their Puget Sound Energy service.” Wednesday’s complaint is in addition to an earlier complaint against PSE that the state filed in October.

October complaint In the October complaint, the state said PSE failed to make changes in its disconnection procedure as the state had ordered. The UTC fined Puget Sound Energy $104,300 in October 2010 for improperly handling disconnection

accounts of customers, including many low-income customers. Bracken said then that the company had changed its policies to reflect the UTC’s interpretation of the state Administrative Code rule. But in October of this year, the UTC said the changes had not been made. A prehearing conference on that complaint is planned Monday at the UTC office at 1300 S. Evergreen Park Drive S.W., Olympia. A hearing date will be

set then, Wallace said. The complaint issued Wednesday is a separate issue, Wallace said. It arises from an investigation that spanned from March to May of this year. UTC said PSE was improperly charging a $13 field-visit disconnect fee to customers. The PSE representative can only charge the fee if he or she was dispatched to the residence to disconnect electric or natural gas service. Under state rules, PSE may not charge a disconnect-visit fee if the utility

visits a customer’s home for a purpose other than to disconnect service, such as leaving a 24-hour termination notice or collecting a payment. The three-member commission will set a schedule for hearing the complaint. PSE has 20 calendar days to file a response. If proven at a hearing, the commission could assess PSE as much as $1,000 for each violation. The company is not allowed to pass any penalty costs to customers through rates.

Steim: Wreck State high court justice subs in for ailing PT judge CONTINUED FROM A1


PORT TOWNSEND — Supreme Court Justice Charles Wiggins is the latest jurist to substitute for Jefferson County Superior Court Judge Craddock Verser, who began cancer treatment in July. A series of judges throughout the state have pitched in. This week was Wiggins’ first Jefferson County appearance since becoming a Supreme Court justice this year, though he served in a pro-tem capacity prior to his term. Wiggins was presiding over a two-day civil trial this week and heard a motion for summary judgment Wednesday, which he expects to decide upon over the next few weeks. “I’ve been up here a few times, and the clerk’s office is great to work with,” Wiggins said. “I’ve gotten to know a few of the lawyers and have a lot of respect for them, and you couldn’t ask for a more beautiful courthouse.” Verser, who is undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer, goes in for a scan this week, said his wife, Joyce Verser, who expects results to

She said he hopes to be back on the bench by Feb. 1. “He’s grateful for all the judges who have filled in in his absence and appreciates all the hard work from the clerk’s office and the court commissioners,” she said in an email. Wiggins, who is finishing his first year on the Supreme Court bench, said lawyers do not treat him any differently now that he is on the state’s highest court. “I have always been treated with respect as a pro-tem judge, but whether it is a little more high now, I don’t really know,” he said. “Being on the Supreme Court helps me narrow the focus on the issues I need to concentrate on, and I tend to be more proactive in questioning the lawyers because

“We are a very collegial group,” he said. “It appears that we are fighting like cats and dogs over certain issues, but in conference, the judges are always professional and courteous to each other.” Court Administrator Michelle Moore said Kitsap County Superior Court Anna Laurie will become the “go-to” judge and will keep a regular Jefferson County schedule between January and May. Court Commissioners Peggy Ann Bierbaum and Keith Harper will also assume a regular schedule, Moore said.

The photos from R Bar, located downtown, were taken before the wreck, but Kelly said they nonetheless show Steim violating conditions of release from a previous case in which she was convicted of negligent driving. In that case, she was found to have been pumping gas in November 2010 while having a blood-alcohol level of 0.208 percent. Steim was convicted Jan. 25.

‘Cannot be trusted’

Williams, while noting a report of friends drinking beer at her home, said he had doubts over whether Steim had the right support group to help keep her from drinking. “The court is concerned that we need something else,” he said, while referring to the lower bail previously ordered.

Witness tampering Before Wednesday, Steim was last booked into jail March 15 when she was charged with witness tampering. She was freed after posting a $100,000 bail. Steim had posted a $50,000 bail after her initial arrest. Steim has pleaded not guilty to both charges.

Lottery: Whimsical commercials CONTINUED FROM A1 It had actor Rhyan Schwartz walking down Water Street both alone and leading a miniature horse supplied by Glenda Cable of Sequim. Cable was on hand to care for her horses, Tex and Q.T., who look enough alike to alternate in the shots with Schwartz.

• I Come to You No Hauling

30 Years Experience


Actor Ryhan Schwartz walks a miniature horse down Water Street as a cameraman follows the action during a commercial shoot Wednesday. The Washington State Lottery plans to air the 30-second spot promoting Powerball in January.

Washington State Lottery is known for its comic, whimsical TV commercials, two of which were filmed in Sequim. Last year, a production crew filmed ads in front of Pondicherri, a shop on East Washington Street in downtown Sequim, and another in a resident’s backyard nearby.

Both ads were produced with comic themes, including bird droppings for lottery picks and a Velcro-covered man on a trampoline. Film location scout Peter Allen, who just happened upon the Agnew store while looking for a location, said part of the reason it was chosen was the Dungeness Valley’s winter weather. “The rain shadow was a factor,” he said, adding that Port Townsend on the Quimper Peninsula was chosen for the same reason — less chance for rain. The rain shadow, a weather phenomenon created by the Olympic Mountains, in effect forces rain clouds into a pattern that travels around, rather than over, Port Angeles and the Dungeness Valley and Port Townsend. It extends to Whidbey

Island and the San Juan Islands. Allen said he was actively looking for a roadside diner when he found the Agnew store. Over the past two years, Frankfurth has remodeled the roadside attraction with a feed store and farm animals — even a small haybale-lined barn for parties.

Canine greeter Frankfurth had to keep his friendly chocolate Labrador and storefront greeter, Mocha, inside the store Tuesday morning so she wouldn’t walk onto the film set. The crew of about 20 production people and actors dressed as bikers rolled in with big trucks that included film equipment and a luxurious lunch that was set up behind the

store, complete with white tablecloths on picnic tables. The location was a natural as a backdrop for a TV commercial or film, Frankfurth said. “It’s so unique out here and so beautiful,” Frankfurth said of the store surrounded by farmland with a panoramic view of the Olympic Mountains. “Any kind of publicity I think is good for the area.” He said it probably helped that the store sells lottery tickets. “We had a $1,000 winner here once,” he said.

Panel supports â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no net lossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of working forests Board: Harvests needed along with wilderness BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

has invited speakers from the U.S. Forest Service, the Campaign for Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wilderness and the North Olympic Timber Action Committee to inform its membership about proposals for wilderness expansions, Ahlburg said. Ahlburg cited a Port of Port Angeles economic impact study that estimated Wild Olympics would cost $3.7 million in lost wages and 72 jobs. Commissioner Steve Tharinger, who is also a state representative, said the 24th District delegation is â&#x20AC;&#x153;looking for better management of the Olympic forests.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sort of trying to stay at the table and have those discussions,â&#x20AC;? he said. Commissioner Mike Doherty said timber counties like Clallam have urged the state Department of Natural Resources to ramp up its forest thinning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Legislature tends to postpone funding that item,â&#x20AC;? he said. Chapman said positions on wilderness expansion are evolving as more information becomes available. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sounds like thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a consensus kind of coalescing around a plan that might work,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s encouraging.â&#x20AC;?

PORT ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Port Angeles Business Association has joined the chorus of those opposed to a loss of harvestable forests on the North Olympic Peninsula. Association President Kaj Ahlburg presented Clallam County commissioners with a letter Tuesday urging the county to revise its support for the expansion of Olympic National Park by supporting the concept of â&#x20AC;&#x153;no net loss of working forests.â&#x20AC;? For each acre of land reclassified as wilderness, the business association requests the transfer of one acre of Forest Service land into a county-managed trust. It also calls for the identification of sufficient forestland for exchanges with private landowners to accomplish park expansion. Two weeks ago, Clallam County Republican Party Chairman Dick Pilling presented county commissioners with a resolution urging ________ them to rescind their support of the Wild Olympics Reporter Rob Ollikainen can be Campaign. reached at 360-417-3537 or at rob.

Wild Olympics Wild Olympics is a coalition of environmental groups that has proposed designating 134,000 acres of Olympic National Forest as wilderness, adding 37,000 acres of state trust lands and private timber company land to Olympic National Park as a wilderness area if the owners agree to sell. Much of the land is in the West End of Clallam County. County commissioners signed a letter supporting the Wild Olympics Campaign â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with a stipulation that there has to be a willing seller â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in February 2010. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe that this is a proposal in the spirit of the request Commissioner [Mike] Chapman made a couple of weeks ago to find common ground, to come up with a compromise solution that works for everybody in this county,â&#x20AC;? Ahlburg said after reading his letter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would like you to take this in no way as criticism of your past position but as an expression of public support for your effort to convince our federal congressional delegation to come up with a plan that does not result in the loss of private jobs or taxpayer revenues, which the county can ill afford at this time.â&#x20AC;?

Path Forward Opponents of the Wild Olympics Campaign have said the Path Forward on Olympic Watersheds Protection proposal supported by U.S. Rep Norm Dicks, D-Belfair, of the 6th Congressional District â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which includes the North Olympic Peninsula â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and U.S. Sen.

Hockett grim on exit from OlyCAP Need high but resources low, former director says BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tim Hockett, who is leaving Olympic Community Action Programs after six years as its executive director, delivered one of his final positive pitches for the agency that lifts up the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downand-out. But not before stating a grim truth up front. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a horrible e n v i r o n - Hockett ment right now for helping people,â&#x20AC;? Hockett told about 40 people attending Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce luncheon. The official departure date for Hockett, 61, will be Dec. 31, but his last day on the job will be Friday, as he

has nowhere else to go. With situations like that on the Peninsula and dollars declining to meet the need, fewer of those in need are being helped. With 225 employees today, far fewer than the more than 300-employee staff of five years ago, OlyCAP is struggling as well, he said. Hockett said there are about 15,000 people in Clallam and Jefferson counties that fall below the poverty line, which translates to a family of four living on $10.66 an hour in pay.

takes a couple of weeks of vacation. He leaves OlyCAP after 22 years with the agency that struggles to serve the needy young and old, the disabled and fixed- and lowincome seniors on the North Olympic Peninsula. Hockett earlier had cited stress as a major reason for his decision to leave the job paying $81,000 annually, some of that stress being Home Fund the frustration of seeing greater need with declining On a more positive note, the Peninsula Daily Newsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; resources. Home Fund, which is administered by OlyCAP, has Need high grown from $7,000 in 1989 to On Tuesday, Hockett $248,367 in 2010 under the said that sadly, there are fundraiser motto â&#x20AC;&#x153;a hand up, more people struggling on not a handout.â&#x20AC;? the Peninsula and fewer Dollars donated to the resources to help them.

Then there are groups such as COAST and the American Legion in Port Townsend, which have helped OlyCAP and other volunteer groups and individuals remodel the basement of the Legionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hall in downtown Port Townsend for the Jefferson County Emergency Winter Homeless Shelter. COAST, an acronym for Community Outreach Association Shelter Team, is a network of Jefferson County and Port Townsend churches that co-founded the shelter with OlyCAP in 2005 at American Legion Post 26 at 209 Monroe St. OlyCAP also is affiliated with such groups as the Boeing Bluebills in Port Ludlow, who help the poor and disabled through building wheelchair ramps and grab bars, and also distributed supplies from World Vision to Peninsula nonprofits every month. Early childhood programs such Head Start; senior meals, which Hockett helped build as OlyCAPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior meals director 22 years ago; and senior housing and home

care are among the other helper programs OlyCAP helps direct. OlyCAP helps people with a variety of problems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People come in with symptoms,â&#x20AC;? Hockett said. They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay their power bill or pay their mortgage or even buy a monthly bus pass to look for a job, he said. OlyCAPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home weatherization program has helped needy families bring down their power bills, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keep in mind that lowincome people tend to live in substandard housing,â&#x20AC;? he said. OlyCAP weatherizes some 200 homes a year by doing something as simple as weather-stripping around drafty doors. Much of what OlyCAP does is connect the person in need with the right help, Hockett said. He talked about the Port Hadlock jail prisoner on volunteer detail for good behavior who helped the food bank in Chimacum put its forklift back together again, postal workers who pick up donated canned goods while deliver-

ing the mail and the downtown Port Angeles sevenchair dental clinic. But all this canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t continue to happen without assistance at all levels in the public and private sectors, he said, which have fallen victim to hard economic times as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the safety net is breaking,â&#x20AC;? Hockett said. After his vacation, Hockett plans to spend some time writing. Hired in August 1989 to run OlyCAPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior nutrition program, Hockett was later promoted to division director and then was promoted to deputy director in 2001. He served in that capacity for five years under the previous executive director, Dan Wollam, and when Wollam left in 2005, he was named executive director. Hockett expects a smooth transition to new OlyCAP leadership after he leaves and praised OlyCAPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteer board members.

Make life-sustaining treatment clear HERE WE ARE on Dec. 15, squarely in the middle of Phase 3 of the 2011 “Holiday Season” (well, I start counting at Halloween). If you’ve just been dropped off by the mother ship, allow me to point out that you have exactly 10 days left until Dec. 25, but I acknowledge that many of us are probably still suffering from a post-Medicare “open enrollment” hangover, so take two aspirin and call somebody else in the morning. Now, if “open enrollment” didn’t successfully put you in the holiday spirit, let’s pick up (as threatened) where we left off last week, which was talking about happy little documents called “advance directives.” These are the pieces of paper that tell doctors and other health care professionals what you do or don’t want done if you can’t tell them yourself. There is a specific document called a “POLST” form, which stands for “Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment,” and


this is one of the few times Harvey that you really do want to remember what an acronym stands for. Here’s why: Let’s say that I have an advanced, lifelimiting illness (probably induced by “open enrollment”) and I’m at home (it could be “wherever,” but let’s say home) and something medically bad happens. Somebody calls 9-1-1, and the EMTs (the “good guys”) come rushing in to save me. That’s their job, which is why they’re the “good guys.” Now, being the totally on-topof-it person that I am, I’ve diligently prepared an advance directive that spells out what I do and don’t want, and since this

body and are not a substitute for an advanced directive. Here’s why: POLST forms are designed for folks who have an “advanced, life-limiting illness.” In other words, you have a condition (or conditions) that could rise up and seriously whack you all of a sudden, potentially sending you on to the promised land. If you have some arthritis, maybe a little high blood pressure, maybe a controlled bit of this and/or that, POLST is not your thing. But if you have something seriously serious, it might be. Also, a POLST form doesn’t Respecting orders necessarily do or say everything That’s what allows the EMTs you might want (or not want), so to respect whatever it is that I it makes perfect sense to have did or didn’t want. both an advanced directive and a In other words, it lets them off POLST. the proverbial legal hook.

“medically bad thing” is preventing me from speaking for myself, everybody in the house is relying on the advance directive to tell the EMTs what to do or not do, right? Wrong. EMTs are required by law to do everything they can to keep me going, and they will, which is why they’re the “good guys,” but it’s not what I wanted. How could I have prevented this? POLST. Remember that the first two letters stand for “physician orders”?

Birthday Eunice R. Anderson Port Angeles resident Eunice R. Anderson will celebrate her 90th birthday with an open house Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Camp Fire Clubhouse, 619 E. Fourth St. She was born Dec. 20, 1921, in Aberdeen to Samuel F. Newman and Ruth E. Love. She was No. 7 of 10 children, four Mrs. brothers and Anderson five sisters.

miracles, good for you. In fact, the various sections of the POLST specifically allow you to say, “I want the full boat.” The form itself addresses issues like yes-or-no to CPR, extent of medical interventions, antibiotics, medically assisted nutrition and a field for whatever else. The smart thing would be to get your hands on one of these and read through it to see if it fits you. They’re easy to find. Most clinics, facilities and certainly hospitals have them around. You can also visit www.wsma. org/patient_resources/polst, which happens to be the Washington State Medical Association’s website for some great info. More questions? Good. Talk to your doc or health care pro. So, let’s say I did a POLST form and conscientiously provided copies to my doc and hospital, but I’m mostly at home. TURN

Artist, writer shares ‘Saintly Sinner’ work PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

CHIMACUM — Artist and writer Anne St. Aubin will emerge from her Quilcene cabin to share her poems, songs and paintings in a show titled “Born a Saintly Sinner” on Friday afternoon. Her program, which is open to all, will start at 2 p.m. at the TriArea Community Center, 10 West Valley Road. Admission is free. St. Aubin left an unhappy home in the South nearly 25 years

ago to come to the Pacific Northwest, where she began a new life and wrote her autobiography, Ascension.

‘Never Too Late’ Now, at 73, she lives by the motto that “it’s never too late” to embark on a new endeavor. And St. Aubin’s latest project, which she will introduce Friday at the community center, is her first children’s book, Drafus the Daring Dragon.


Oceanographer Jim Ingraham, with Sequim residents Monty Davis, 68 and Ralph Burba, also 68, discusses a Japanese float found east of Neah Bay two weeks ago. The float is believed to be the first piece of identified debris from the March 11 tsunami in Japan. Large items still in the water should be reported to the Coast Guard, as they may represent a hazard to boats and ships, he said. Some shipping lanes have already been rerouted to avoid the worst of the debris, he said. People should also be aware of the possibility of radiation contamination, he said.

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant leaked a large amount of radiation into the water in the wake of the tsunami, and no one knows what levels of contamination there are in the currents and the items being carried in those currents, he said. Ebbesmeyer suggested local police take steps to have sensitive

Geiger counters available to scan items — just to be safe. The event was unprecedented, and no one knows yet what levels of radiation, if any, items have picked up, he said.

Peninsula gets over $4 million for salmon projects PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

OLYMPIA — The Washington Salmon Recovery Funding Board has given more than $4 million in grants to North Olympic Peninsula projects. The $4,251,241 in grants to organizations in Clallam and Jefferson counties are part of nearly $30 million given statewide to encourage salmon population growth. Salmon populations in Washington state have been declining for generations. In Clallam County, $2,447,641 was awarded to nine projects, while seven projects in Jefferson County received a total of $1,803,600. Jefferson County also is part of two grants involving multiple counties. Grant applications are solicited and submitted by watershed councils formed by state statute called lead entities. They bring together local governments and area tribes, citizens, scientists and nonprofits to advance salmon restoration, said Cheryl Baumann, coordinator of the North Olympic Peninsula Lead Entity for Salmon, which covers work done from Blyn on the county’s eastern edge along the Strait of Juan de Fuca to Cape Flattery. The other such group on the Peninsula is the North Pacific Coast Lead Entity,which covers the area from Cape Flattery down the Pacific Coast to the Hoh River. It is coordinated by Rich Osborne. “We are particularly pleased with the breadth and depth of our project portfolio advanced this year,” Baumann said. “It includes a wide variety of efforts to address fish passage barriers, strengthen fish migration corridors, monitor fish use and assist in revegetation of the Elwha reservoirs, as well as planning for future protection and restoration.” Restoration planner Randy Johnson and his team at the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe deserve credit for their Washington Harbor Project, which was recognized as one of eight noteworthy projects by the

port further operation of a salmon weir during removal of the Elwha River dams. The goal is to capture fish for stock preservation and to evaluate abundance and diversity of adult salmon and steelhead in the Elwha River. The department will contribute $16,000 from a federal grant.

Salmon Recovery Funding Board review panel, Baumann said. “We are also extremely grateful to the Hood Canal Lead Entity, which generously agreed to allocate a portion of their grant funds towards that project.” Funding for the grants comes from the federal Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Fund and the sale of state bonds.

Death and Memorial Notice ALICE JANE OSBORNE July 22, 1917 December 6, 2011 Alice Jane Osborne passed away peacefully in Olympia, Washington, on December 6, 2011, at the age of 94. She was born in Minot, North Dakota, to Frank and Mary Julianna Yeagle on July 22, 1917. She grew up and attended school in the Dakotas, receiving a degree in classics from Dakota Wesleyan University in 1939. Alice was adventurous: When she finished college, she applied for teaching jobs in Alaska and Saudi Arabia. Alaska offered her a job, and so she flew to Nome, Alaska,

Mrs. Osborn in 1942 under wartime conditions. She met her husband-to-be, Gordon Osborne, there, but they weren’t allowed to marry until the war ended. She and Oz made homes in

Nome, Kotzebue, Barrow, Fairbanks and Delta Junction over their years together in Alaska. Alice taught school from elementary to high school but primarily taught business, English and Latin. Once she and Oz moved to Fairbanks, she also became the adviser for Lathrop High School’s newspaper, The Paystreak, and served as Lathrop’s English Department head when Lathrop and West Valley split. Alice also briefly wrote a column on parenting for the Fairbanks paper, the Daily News-Miner. Once she and Oz retired, they moved to Sequim. Alice loved gardening and created beautiful yards in her homes in

Washington. She continued her love of writing as well: She was a member of Alaska Press Women and the National Federation of Press Women, she wrote a column for the Peninsula Daily News, she belonged to several writing groups, and she published a book about her adventures in Alaska, Alice Osborne’s Alaska. Alice’s fondness for travel to distant places led her on trips to Australia and New Zealand, Germany, Italy and Greece. She also volunteered for the Humane Society and tutored for Sequim schools. Oz passed on in 1985, and Alice moved to Panorama City to be near family. She volunteered with the annual garden show

and helped produce the newsletter. After a series of heart attacks, she moved to Providence Mother Joseph Care Center, where she lived until her death. She is survived by her daughter, Sandra Madsen, and her grandchildren, Bjorn and Leif. A memorial service will be held at Providence Mother Joseph Care Center, 3333 Ensign Road Northeast, Olympia, on Saturday, December 17, 2011, at 2 p.m. Please leave memories and condolences at www.

Obama on TV with selective memory PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA doesn’t suffer from amnesia, but apparently he hopes the public does. In his latest in a series of Cal interviews on Thomas “60 Minutes” last Sunday night, the president took positions that are the polar opposite of what he was saying as recently as last spring. One wishes all of those “fact-checkers” who point out supposed mistakes by the Republican candidates were as committed to noting even worse flaws in the president’s promises. In his interview with Steve Kroft, the president said he always believed that reversing the culture in Washington “was gonna take more than one term.” It’s a “long-term project,” he said, “not a short-term project.” And then he claimed that during the 2008 campaign, he “didn’t overpromise.”

Really? Speaking in Richmond, Va., on Oct. 22, 2008, Obama promised to put millions of Americans back to work; he pledged “real change.” Instead, the unemployment rate is 8.6 percent. Or is it? Ed Luce of the Financial Times writes: “According to government statistics, if the same number of people were seeking work today as in 2007, the jobless rate would be 11 percent.” Washington remains unchanged, as dysfunctional and gridlocked as ever. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, since President Obama took office, the nation has lost 1.9 million jobs, prompting Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler to write that if the economy does not turn around, “Obama is on track to have the worst jobs record of any president in the modern era.” In 2009, the president said on the “Today” show: “If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.” A few days later in Florida, there was this:

“I’m not going to make any excuses,” Obama said. “If stuff hasn’t worked and people don’t feel like I’ve led the country in the right direction, then you’ll have a new president.” The latest right-track, wrongtrack poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports found that only 17 percent of Americans believe the country is headed in the right direction, while a whopping 75 percent think it’s headed the wrong way. On CBS, the president said the 2012 election is about his vision, but as CBS News’ Stephanie Condon reported last week: “Sixty-six percent of Americans say they do not have a clear idea of what he wants to accomplish in a second term. . . . “Fewer than half of Democrats say they have a clear idea of what the president wants to accomplish if re-elected.” Don’t we know? It’s taxing “millionaires and billionaires” so the government has more of our money to waste. Is none of this Obama’s fault? Can it all be blamed on Bush? Apparently, the president has decided that playing the blame

Peninsula Voices How tweet it is With all the world going (or having already gone) atwitter over Twitter I thought I’d add a comment. Two new words have entered the (American) English lexicon recently, “Twitter” and “tweet.” Twitter is, of course, the social media phenomenon whereby a person can send brief (140 characters max) text messages to the world, commenting on anything from the state of politics to what he or she had for breakfast. Tweet is either the message itself (as in “to send a

tweet” or the act of sending the tweet (as in “I just tweeted”). You could even go over the top by saying “I just tweeted a tweet,” but that would be redundant. One word has been sadly omitted here, and that is the noun used to identify one who tweets. This would be the “twit.” Actually, “twit” is an obscure English word and a mid-late 20th century English slang word, as in “. . . you bloody twit!” It is also the name of a family written about by Roald Dahl in his 1980

Penguin book, The Twits. Perhaps you can help add “twit” to the current twitter craze and promote its proper use. Robert McCauley, Sequim

PA ‘cashouts’ What’s wrong with this picture? [“PA City Officials ‘Cash Out’” PDN, Dec. 4] City department directors are required to know and enforce the policies and procedures, so why would a director of 11 years “assume” what a policy states? Directors must also


game is good campaign strategy. The president blames Republicans for not allowing him to accomplish anything. But he says nothing about his own failure to get things done (other than the health care bill, whose constitutionality the Supreme Court ultimately will decide) when Democrats controlled Congress for the first two years of his administration. And what about Senate Democrats who have rejected every House bill seeking cuts in wasteful spending to bring the budget closer into balance? Not a word. Shall I continue? The president’s housing programs received $50 billion from Congress to help stem foreclosures on 9 million homeowners. As The Washington Post reported in October, only $2.4 billion of that money has been allocated, helping just 1.7 million people avoid foreclosure. Imagine what Democrats and their acolytes in the media would say if a Republican president had a similar track record. One doesn’t have to imagine. With a lower unemployment

rate and less debt in the Bush administration, Democrats were relentless in their attacks, promising improvements. Barack Obama assured us he would make things better. Democrats didn’t improve anything and nothing has been made better. According to President Obama’s own standard — and contrary to what he said on “60 Minutes” — he does not deserve a second term. That he thinks he has earned re-election brings to mind the World English Dictionary definition of “hubris”: “Pride or arrogance; (in Greek tragedy) an excess of ambition . . . ultimately causing the transgressor’s ruin.”

have some responsibility to bring a policy forward for clarification. Signing your own compensation request is outrageous and an obvious conflict of interest. It’s a generous benefit, so it’s equally unconscionable for one to request more cash out than allowed. How can this be passed off as an “unclear policy or past error,” since the audit report shows the cash outs increased each year to date? What constitutes fraud? Where are the internal

controls and auditing function? It seems that “errors” of this magnitude should be caught by an internal audit before a state audit. At least a flag in the computerized payroll system would prohibit cashouts of more than the maximum of 80-120 hours a year, or surely a conscientious payroll employee would question paying out more than allowed. Oh, those functions are under the finance director, too? Good thing the city manager decided excesses

should be returned to the city, or it would be a “gift of public funds” and a further outrage. If these were rank and file employees, there would be discipline “up to and including termination.” Where’s the discipline? This behavior not only erodes public trust, but gives a bad impression of all hard-working, honest public employees. How sad! It’s time for changes at City Hall. Charlotte Sellin, Port Angeles

Many unmoved by climate agreement “YOU’VE BEEN NEGOTIATING all my life,” Anjali Appadurai told the plenary session of the U.N.’s 17th “Conference of Parties,” or COP 17, the official title of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Durban, South Africa. Appadurai, a student at the ecologically Amy focused College Goodman of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine, addressed the plenary as part of the youth delegation. She continued: “In that time, you’ve failed to meet pledges, you’ve missed targets, and you’ve broken promises. “But you’ve heard this all before.” After she finished her address, she moved to the side of the podium, off microphone, and in a manner familiar to anyone who has attended an Occupy protest, shouted into the vast hall of staid diplomats, “Mic check!” A crowd of young people stood up, and the call-and-response began: Appadurai: “Equity now!” Crowd: “Equity now!”

Appadurai: “You’ve run out of excuses!” Crowd: “You’ve run out of excuses!” Appadurai: “We’re running out of time!” Crowd: “We’re running out of time!” Appadurai: “Get it done!” Crowd: “Get it done!” That was Friday, at the official closing plenary session of COP 17. The negotiations were extended, virtually nonstop, through Sunday, in hopes of avoiding complete failure. At issue were arguments over words and phrases — for instance, the replacement of “legal agreement” with “an agreed outcome with legal force,” which is said to have won over India to the Durban Platform. The countries in attendance agreed to a schedule that would lead to an agreement by 2015, which would commit all countries to reduce emissions starting no sooner than 2020, eight years into the future. “Eight years from now is a death sentence on Africa,” Nigerian environmentalist Nnimmo Bassey, chairperson of Friends of the Earth International, told me. “For every one-degree Celsius change in temperature, Africa is impacted at a heightened level.”

Hence, a popular sticker in Durban read “Stop CO2lonialism.” By comparison, China, the country that is the largest emitter currently, has per capita emissions closer to 5 metric tons, ranking it about 80th. India’s population emits a meager 1.5 tons per capita, a fraction of the U.S. level. So it seems U.S. intransigence, its unwillingness to get off its fossil-fuel addiction, effectively killed Kyoto in Durban, a key city in South Africa’s fight against apartheid. That is why Anjali Appadurai’s closing words were imbued with a sense of hope brought by this new generation of climate activists: “[Nelson] Mandela said, ‘It always seems impossible, until it’s done.’ “So, distinguished delegates and governments around the world, governments of the developed world, deep cuts now. “Get it done.”

Snider Creek’s time up THE SNIDER CREEK steelhead broodstock program may not be dead. If it were a spawning steelie, however, it would almost certainly Matt be flopping Schubert around some bank of the upper Sol Duc river. Ron Warren, state Department of Fish and Wildlife regional fish manager, said this, the 26th year of the program, will be its last on the Sol Duc. Members of the Olympic Peninsula Guides’ Association will get one more egg take from wild steelhead collected out of the Sol Duc this winter. Their smolts will be released back into the river in 2012 before broodstocking operations are transferred to another West End river — likely either the Calawah or Bogachiel — in 2013. Larry Scott, the association’s vice president, said he isn’t thrilled with the decision, having worked on the Snider Creek program each of the past 25 years. But he and several members of the association and Forks community are ready to start working on whatever incarnation is moved to the Bogachiel or Calawah in the future. “It’s just a hell of a blow for the guide association and all the sportsmen and the like,” Scott said. “I’d like to still go to battle for the project, because I’m one of the last few still guiding that started this. “I can’t believe with all the closures [to other fisheries in the state] that they wouldn’t let this go on. “It’s obviously the strongest river in the state as far as wild stock is concerned and hosting a tremendous amount of wild fish year after year.”

Catch 22 Of course, that’s what makes this whole thing a bit of a catch 22. Regardless of whether or not the Snider Creek broodstock program helped boost wild populations during the past 25 years, the fact that the run is so healthy makes it the perfect candidate for a wild stock gene bank. As part of Fish and Wildlife’s new management philosophy, there is a desire to reduce the impact of hatchery fish on wild runs throughout the state. Creating wild stock gene banks allows for rivers to operate completely free of hatchery influence. And that was a major factor in moving the Snider Creek program out of the Sol Duc and putting a similar one into a river like the Bogachiel or Calawah, where a winter hatchery steelhead run exists. “What we’ve decided is that the stock in the Sol Duc, the steelhead stock, should be a wild stock gene bank and not have any hatchery influence on it,” Warren said. “It’s difficult to ascertain the absolute risks with our inability to fully see and count steelhead. It’s tough to enumerate steelhead in the best of conditions. “Then to try and differentiate them hatchery or wild makes it more difficult. Then to try and ascertain or analyze what different programs are doing to the natural population is even more difficult. “In looking at our analysis, we know that there is risk.”

Brief history The Snider Creek program has been run jointly by the state and the guides association since 1986. Association members collect 50 wild fish from the Sol Duc each year to spawn 50,000 smolts at the Sol Duc Hatchery. After the smolts have their left ventral fins clipped, they are taken to a location near Snider Creek where they are raised by longtime association member Sam Windle Sr. prior to release. Typically, fish return from late December into January and February. TURN




Washington coach Lorenzo Romar argues a call during the first half of last week’s game against Marquette in the Jimmy V Classic in New York.

Healing at home UW licking wounds after tough road trip THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — Limping back from New York with a .500 record has Washington searching. The Huskies have lost three consecutive games, all on the road and by a total of 11 points. In New York, Washington (4-4) succumbed in different ways during back-to-back defeats. The 79-77 loss to No. 11 Marquette can be blamed on poor transition defense and botched management in the final seconds.

Last Saturday against seventh-ranked Duke at Madison Square Garden, Washington was shaken early and the Huskies couldn’t overcome a 19-point hole in the first half. To top things off, starting center Aziz N’Diaye sprained his right knee against Duke and will not play Friday when Washington faces UC Santa Barbara at home. N’Diaye may not be back until the Huskies start Pac-12 conference play Dec. 29 against Oregon State.

Through it all, head coach Lorenzo Romar is compiling the lessons and left New York with his typical optimism. “We can be competitive with anyone,” Romar said. “We have to finish games. “If we’re able to do that and continue to grow, then we’ve got a chance to be really good at the end of the year.” Before that happens, Washington will be working to fill an unquantifiable void. Former Huskies star Isaiah Thomas was constantly around the program during the NBA lockout. He went to each home game and even showed up to several practices. But he never put on a jersey after opting to leave a year early for the NBA.

Next Game Friday vs. UCSB at Hec Ed Time: 7 p.m. On TV: ROOT

It’s not just Thomas’ scoring that the Huskies are missing, but his leadership. “I think we’re missing exactly that,” co-scoring leader C.J. Wilcox said. “He brought a lot of energy. When he got things started, it brought everybody else a lot of confidence and that’s when we started to get rolling. So, we definitely need a couple guys, if not just one guy, to do something like that.” TURN

CLALLAM BAY — The Neah Bay boys basketball team might take a little more time to gel this winter. With so many of them playing football deep into the fall — all but one was on the 1B championship squad — the Red Devils need a little time to shake out the cobwebs on the basketball court. Consider Neah Bay’s 71-36 nonleague victory at rival Clallam Bay on Tuesday a step in the right direction after it lost its season opener to Forks 50-33 last Saturday. “There was a difference,” secondyear Neah Bay head coach Gerrad Brooks said. “The guys catch on fast and they played hard. We were moving the ball on offense. “We actually ran a few plays on offense,” added Brooks, chuckling. “That helped out quite a bit.” Titus Pascua benefitted most from the offensive cohesion, hitting 9 of 11 shots, many on layups, for 19 points. Michael Dulik netted a game high 20 to lead a group of seven Red Devil (1-1 overall) scorers and also had seven rebounds. Leyton Doherty and Josiah Greene both dished out five assists, LONNIE ARCHIBALD/FOR PENINSULA DAILY NEWS and Doherty also had seven Neah Bay’s Titus Pascua (23) drives during Tuesday night’s rebounds.

Forks 44, Rainier 31 FORKS — Braden Decker had a monster game with 20 points and a stellar job on defending Rainier’s top player in SWL-Evergreen Division action Tuesday night. Decker had to check Dalton Delio, who came in scoring an average of 17 points a game and had 52 percent of Rainier’s points this year. Delio scored just nine points while Decker was guarding him and 13 for the game. Meanwhile, Decker dropped in his 20 while also getting three assists and three steals. “Braden had a great game offensively and defensively,” Forks coach Scott Justus said. Tyler Penn and Brady Castellano swished in 10 points each for the Spartans as Forks (1-0, 3-1) had three players score in double figures for the first time this year. Penn also had seven steals, five rebounds and four assists. “Tyler Penn had a great all-around game for us,” Justus said. Castellano, meanwhile, brought down a team-high six boards.

Boys Swimming Port Angeles 133, Kingston 49 PORT ANGELES — The Roughriders didn’t waste any time looking towards districts as seven individuals and all three relay teams earned district qualifying times in only their second meet of the season Tuesday. In addition, Tyler Burke was a double winner. Burke was first in the 50-yard freestyle and the 100 backstroke, earning a district time of 23.84 seconds in the 50 free. Avery Koehler was first and earned a qualifying time of 1:01.97 in the 100 butterfly while two swimmers will be going to districts in the 500 free. John Macias was first in the 500 in 5:51.23 and Cole Urnes took second in 6:14.89. Other individual district swimmers were Koehler in the 100 breaststroke (third in 1:12.60), Connor Reid in 200 free (second in 2:14.85) and Kris Wannquist in 200 individual medley (third in 2:35.74). Relay teams with district entry times are the 200 medley relay (first in 1:50.90) of Burke, Matt Watkins, Koehler and Macias; the 200 free relay (first in 1:42.24) of Koehler, Wannquist, Watkins and Jay Liang; and the 400 free (first in 3:52.20) of Reid, Liang, Macias and Burke. The Riders (2-0) won 10 of the 12 events. Austin Fahrenholtz, the defending 2A state champion, dominated diving with a total score of 237.50.

Thomas was one of four players who left after last season. Seniors Matthew BryanAmaning, Justin Holiday and Venoy Overton also moved on. Thomas and Overton first played each other in high school. Thomas and Bryan-Amaning were roommates at South Kent School (Conn.) prior to coming to Washington. Holiday played four years with Bryan-Amaning and Overton, plus three with Thomas. That chemistry and experience is only replicated with time. “Those guys were kind of on autopilot,” Romar said. “They knew exactly what each guy was going to do. The other guys kind of filled in. “Now, everybody’s trying to decide, you know, like y’all have been asking the entire time: Who’s going to be the go-to guy, who is going to take the big shot?” Romar predicted this group would have ups and downs while getting acclimated to each other.

Wilcox and Terrence Ross have played in the NCAA tournament. Each played in the Maui Invitational last season. But Ross, Wilcox and even veterans like Abdul Gaddy and Darnell Gant have not previously been counted on to carry the team. That duty fell to Thomas last year and Quincy Pondexter the year before. Finding that player this year can be added to Romar’s immediate fix list, which includes transition defense, fewer turnovers and better offensive spacing. He hopes the New York trip proved something to his middling Huskies. Romar insists the problems can be solved with adjustments as opposed to an overhaul. “I just think we made progress,” Romar said. “In spite of two losses, there was a little bit more of a belief in ourselves that we were able to get. “Not talking about moral victories at all, just talking about knowing what we’re capable of if we do things right.”

Changes considered for clean-energy law BY PHUONG LE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — Large utilities in Washington state will soon have to get at least part of their power from new renewable sources like wind and solar. But with a voter-mandated 2012 deadline looming, Gov. Chris Gregoire is weighing a package of changes that could expand the definition of what clean energy is. Initiative 937 requires almost a third of the state’s utilities — those with at least 25,000 customers — to ramp up to getting 15 percent of its power through wind, solar, geothermal and certain woody biomass by 2020. The governor wants to provide a broader recognition of the state’s clean, electric energy to help attract businesses to the state, as well as make sure the law is working in a costeffective way, said her policy adviser, Keith Phillips. Lawmakers, utility officials, environmentalists, business leaders and others are meeting with the Governor’s Office in Olympia today to discuss potential changes that may be included in legislation next year. What should count toward that clean-energy standard has been a hotly debated issue in the Legislature over the years, with numerous bills aimed at

changing the law but none has succeeded so far. Some of those bills are sure to surface again in the legislative session that begins Jan. 9, including attempts to recognize hydroelectric power as eligible toward I-937.

Hydro not eligible About two-thirds of the state’s energy mix comes from clean hydroelectric power, but existing hydropower isn’t eligible, partly because the initiative was aimed at spurring development of new clean energy. Even with so much clean energy in Washington, there’s a perception problem when it comes to luring businesses that want clean energy to the state, Phillips said. The governor wants to recognize some incremental hydropower and biomass improvements toward fulfilling the clean-energy standard. Her list of potential changes also includes delaying requirements for smaller utilities that grow slowly, raising the renewable standard to 20 percent after 2020 and allowing utilities to bank excess conservation. “Anytime you make changes, there are economic winners and losers,” said Rep. Dave Upthegrove, D-Des Moines, who heads the House environment committee and has been

studying possible changes to I-937. For example, he said, some utilities and businesses would like to make more biomass eligible, but that could devalue utilities that have heavily invested in wind power. He said he would like to move forward with changes next year. Danielle Dixon, senior policy associate with the NW Energy Coalition, a prime backer of the law, said her group is interested in “potential amendments that will help improve the effectiveness of the law and ease its implementation.”

I-937’s effects I-937 currently applies to 17 of the state’s 62 utilities, such as Avista, Chelan Public Utility District and Seattle City Light. The first standard kicks in Jan. 1, and it appears likely that all utilities will meet the 3 percent cleanenergy requirement, said Howard Schwartz, senior energy analyst with the state. The standard ramps up to 9 percent by 2016 and 15 percent by 2020. Benton County PUD spokeswoman Karen Miller said the governor’s proposal would help but wouldn’t take care of its biggest problem: buying energy it does not need. Some utilities have had to purchase additional

renewable power that they don’t need in order meet the law’s requirements, resulting in increased rates for customers. “Buying power takes strategic planning, and we want to be strategic about how we spend our customers’ money,” said Miller. “Buying wind that we don’t need to replace hydro we already have is not very strategic.” Public utilities of Clallam, Benton and Lewis counties are supporting a bill introduced last session that would eliminate the requirement for utilities to buy renewable energy to meet I-937 if it has excess energy. Clark County Public Utilities is buying $13 million in renewable credits to meet the 2012 standard. The law assumed utilities would see a certain amount of growth, but that hasn’t happened, said Dean Sutherland, the utility’s senior manager of government and community affairs. The utility purchased wind power in anticipation of I-937, but its customers don’t need the electricity, he said. Utilities should be allowed to acquire renewable resources only to meet its load growth, he added. “There are some inefficiencies that we think are costing our customers more than we think is necessary,” he said.

Private sector key to jobless rate’s drop

Transportation needs tallied at $21 billion


OLYMPIA — A task force says the state needs to raise $21 billion over 10 years for projects on roads, bridges, ferries and other transportation needs. The recommendations by the task force convened by Gov. Chris Gregoire include increasing the gas tax by 15 to 20 cents a gallon, raising $3.3 billion to $4.7 billion that could be used for maintaining and building roads. Other recommendations made Monday include a 1 percent statewide tax on vehicle purchases, tolls on roads and bridges, an increase in the weight fees

for passenger cars and new or increased fees such as for driver’s licenses, electric vehicles and commercial trucks. A bipartisan mix of lawmakers will start working on the specifics next month, and any plan likely would be put on the November ballot for voters to decide.

It won’t be easy Task force members acknowledged the difficulty of pushing a tax increase, especially during a year when lawmakers may send a temporary sales tax increase to the ballot. “There’s never an exact

right time to do any of this,” said House Transportation Committee Chairwoman Judy Clibborn, D-Mercer Island. The state expects to collect far less than it once thought from the gas tax because of the economic downturn and the trend toward more fuel-efficient vehicles. Lawmakers need a twothirds majority to pass taxes but only a simple majority to send a tax package to voters. “They put everything on the table,” said Gregoire, who plans to use the ideas to start forming her own recommendations next week.

Costco CEO sees 2011 compensation fall 38% THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Costco Wholesale Corp. CEO James Sinegal saw his compensation fall 38 percent to about $2.2 million for the company’s 2011 fiscal year, according to a regulatory filing. The executive had total compensation valued by the company at $3.5 million in fiscal 2010. Costco, the nation’s biggest wholesale club operator, maintained Sinegal’s fiscal 2011 salary at $350,000 and increased his bonus by 4 percent to $198,400, according to documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Costco has seen its profitability grow during the economic downturn as it focused on prices and as shoppers turned to its clubs for deals on food and necessities. The Issaquah company reported that its fiscal 2011 net income rose 12 percent

to $1.46 billion, or $3.30 per share, while revenue climbed 14 percent to $88.92 billion. The 75-year-old Sinegal received stock and options with an estimated value of nearly $1.6 million, which was 46 percent lower than the approximately $2.9 million a year ago. He also received $81,206 in other perks such as insurance premiums and a car allowance. This was a 13 percent decline from the $93,004 in other perks that Sinegal received in the prior-year period. The Associated Press formula calculates an executive’s total compensation during the last fiscal year by adding salary, bonuses, perks, above-market interest the company pays on deferred compensation and the estimated value of stock and stock options awarded during the year. The AP formula does not count changes in the present value of

pension benefits. That makes the AP total slightly different in most cases from the total reported by companies to the Securities and Exchange Commission. The value that a company assigned to an executive’s stock and option awards for 2011 was the present value of what the company expected the awards to be worth to the executive over time. Companies use one of several formulas to calculate that value. However, the number is just an estimate, and what an executive ultimately receives will depend on the performance of the company’s stock in the years after the awards are granted. Most stock compensation programs require an executive to wait a specified amount of time to receive shares or exercise options. Costco will hold its annual shareholders meeting Jan. 26 in Bellevue.

OLYMPIA — Privatesector job growth has pushed Washington’s unemployment rate to the lowest point since February 2009, officials said Wednesday. The Employment Security Department said the drop to 8.7 percent unemployment in November came with the state adding 12,100 jobs. The jobless rate was down from 9.1 percent in October. Figures for Clallam and Jefferson counties are expected to be released Tuesday. “This is the kind of job growth we need to make a good dent in the unemployment rate,” said Greg Weeks, director of the Employment Security Department’s labor-market information office, in a statement. The state has added jobs in 13 of the past 14 months, but it has usually come in smaller chunks. The November numbers show growth across much of the private sector. The professional and business services sector added 4,200 jobs. Leisure and hospitality grew by 3,800. Construction was up 2,000 jobs. Government posted a slight decline in jobs. More than 300,000 people in Washington were unemployed and looking for work in October, according to the Employment Security Department. As of Saturday, some 68,000 workers had exhausted their unemployment benefits. Washington’s numbers followed the national trend for November. The U.S. unemployment rate dropped from 9 percent to 8.6 percent.

DEAR ABBY: “Saddened in New Jersey” complained that her sister’s 4-year-old daughter put stickers on the hands and face of her deceased grandmother during her wake. Perhaps the child’s mother didn’t anticipate her daughter’s actions. Children need to grieve, too. That said, they also should behave appropriately. I saw an article about one funeral home with an excellent solution. Before the dearly departed is placed in the casket, the inside fabric, pillow, etc., are removed. The children are then allowed to decorate the uncovered casket walls with farewell messages and drawings. The interior is then “reupholstered,” and nothing is visible. The children are told that it is to keep their messages private. One story was particularly touching — a little boy wanted his mommy to know how much he loved her and for it to be as close to her as possible. He wrote “I love you, Mommy” on the casket pillow that was placed beneath her head. At the service, only he knew about the secret message he had left for his mom for all eternity. A Mom in Texas

Putting stickers on Grandma was the child’s way of saying goodbye. A funeral is a celebration of life, and no matter what their age, people are entitled to say goodbye in their own way. Melody in Nevada

Dear Abby: If the sticker incident is the worst that can be said about the 4-year-old’s behavior that day, what’s the harm? Had she thrown a tantrum during the service or before placing the stickers, I’d agree that the child should not have been there. But since the behavior took place after “Saddened” made an issue of the stickers, the situation could have been handled more effectively. All “Saddened” had to do was wait until the service was over, take the funeral director aside privately and ask him to remove the stickers before the deceased was interred. No drama, no scene, no tantrum, and everybody goes home in peace. Funerals, like any other event, are only as stressful as you want them to be. No Drama, Please

For Better or For Worse


Fun ’n’ Advice


by Garry Trudeau

by Eugenia Last

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Plan a day trip or shopping spree. Spending time with someone you can learn from will be a bonus. A change in your financial situation will ease your mind about the expenses you have incurred. You can create your own opportunity. 5 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Interact with others and share ideas about services you have to offer that can help you subsidize your income. Branch out, explore new avenues, meet new people and expand your mind. Traveling and socializing are favored. 3 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You have control and can make things happen, as long as you don’t rub someone the wrong way. Give credit where credit is due and you can make amends with someone who is competitive and has as much to offer as you do. 5 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Get in touch with people you don’t see very often. Your effort to reach out will help ease tension that may have been building between you and someone you must deal with over the festive season. An unusual partnership will be beneficial. 2 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It will be difficult to contain your feelings. Get away from people and situations that are bothering you. Distance yourself and you’ll see things differently. A new friend or lover will help you find solutions for old problems. 3 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Focus on pleasing someone you care about. With a little effort, you can make your home life less stressful. Begin living within your means as well as with the people or person you feel offers equality. 3 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Let everyone do as they please and you’ll be given the same right. Focus on home, helping others and securing your position. Your great ideas will bring impressive results. Good fortune is making its way to you. 4 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Offer help to the needy and try to avoid a power play with someone close to you. Short trips will pay off and help you see things in a unique way. An unusual opportunity can be your way out of a sticky situation. 4 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You have plenty to gain by discussing your plans with someone who can offer you a contract, assistance or greater security. A change at home will bring you greater emotional freedom and allow you to start fresh. 3 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t put pressure on someone if you want to avoid opposition. Take care of your business and refrain from meddling in what others do. Concentrate on love and enjoying the company of someone you think is special. 3 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Share thoughts with friends and relatives and you will come up with a workable solution to unsavory circumstances. Trust that what you can offer is enough. Your shortcoming is a lack of confidence due to a lack of praise. 2 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stick close to home and avoid anyone trying to push you in an unsuitable direction. Focus on what you can do for yourself and the people you care about most. Don’t get angry. Put energy into achieving your goals. 3 stars

Light sensors activate too early Dear Doctor: Is there a way to adjust the sensor level for the automatic headlights on 2006 and 2007 Chevy vehicles? I have a 2007 Cobalt SS and a 2006 HHR. Both cars turn the headlights on at 10 a.m. in November with totally clear skies (unless I face into the sun). John Dear John: Vehicles equipped with the automatic headlight feature have a small electronic light sensor located on the top of the dash — usually at the front of the dash by the windshield — while others have the sensor mounted on the rearview mirror housing. The sensor is preset, and there is no way to adjust the light sensitivity. Make sure the sensor is clean and free of anything that can cover it.

Garage or car advice? Dear Doctor: I have a 2011 Chevy Cruze. I changed the oil for the first time at 2,000 miles in September before a taking a trip between New York and Florida. At Thanksgiving, with the odometer at 6,000
