Workers back on job Monday Union ending strike, but contract concerns remain at Nippon mill BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — The strike of 130 unionized workers at the Nippon Paper Industries USA plant will end at 7 a.m. Monday morning, when the workers begin returning to their jobs at the mill. At least 50 members of the International Association of Western Pulp & Paper Workers Local 155 gathered at the Moose Lodge in Port Angeles for 90 minutes Saturday afternoon. They heard in the private meeting about the status of contract negotiations after union officials Friday called off the contract-related strike that began Wednesday. Greg Pallesen, vice president of the international union, said after Saturday’s meeting that union members were given the status of negotiations and told about the next steps, although he did not offer specifics. When asked what’s next, Pallesen said: “We’re going back to work.” An unfair labor practice com-
plaint by Local 155 of the Association of Western Pulp & Paper Workers continues, he said. Also, union talks will continue with the company, but not until mediation with federal mediator Kathleen Erskine. “I can’t imagine talks happening before then,” Pallesen said Friday. A session is now scheduled for the first week of April, but it could be earlier depending upon Erskine’s schedule, Pallesen said.
Back in production The plant, which has been shut down since workers walked off the job at 11 a.m. Wednesday, should be back in production by Monday night or Tuesday, Mill Manager Harold Norlund said Saturday. He said he doesn’t yet know how much the shutdown cost the company.

SEQUIM –– Is the city of Sequim anti-business? Many owners of businesses between downtown and the big box stores on the west side of the town that is a commercial center for the North Olympic Peninsula say yes. “Dancing with them has just been . . . insane,” said Karen Kester, owner of Karen’s Sequim Sewing Center inside the Sequim Village Center, 609 W. Washington St. Restrictions on curbside advertisements and impact fees charged on new businesses have prompted an onslaught of outrage from the West Washington Street business community toward City Hall. Linda Engeseth, owner of Crumb Grabbers Bakery, 492 W. Cedar St., was shocked when city officials told her she would have to pay a $17,000 fee to offset new traffic patterns when she moved her bakery to a house at the corner of Cedar Street and Fifth Avenue.

PORT ANGELES — Elwha River sediment released by dam removal that is overwhelming the the Elwha River Treatment Plant could create an “extremely serious” situation for Port Angeles’ water supply, the city manager says. The sediment clogging the intakes of the plan could lead to a shortened lifespan of the well from which Port Angeles gets most of its water, City Manager Dan McKeen said. City officials don’t know enough about what the National Park McKeen Service is doing to fix the problem and wants to be advised, McKeen said in a letter sent to Olympic National Park Superintendent Sarah Creachbaum.

CHINUA ACHEBE, 82, the internationally celebrated Nigerian author, statesman and dissident, died in Boston on Thursday after a brief illness. He lived through and helped define traumatic change in Nigeria, from independence to Mr. Achebe dictatorship in 2008 to the disastrous war between Nigeria and the breakaway country of Biafra in the late 1960s. He knew both the prestige of serving on government commissions and the fear of being declared an enemy of the state. He spent much of his adult life in the United States but never stopped calling for democracy in Nigeria or resisting literary honors from a government he refused to accept. “What has consistently escaped most Nigerians in this entire travesty is the

fact that mediocrity destroys the very fabric of a country as surely as a war — ushering in all sorts of banality, ineptitude, corruption and debauchery,” wrote Mr. Achebe, whose death was confirmed by Brown University, where he taught. Mr. Achebe, paralyzed from the waist down since a 1990 auto accident, joined Brown in 2009 as a professor of languages and literature. He was a resident of London when he completed his handwritten manuscript for Things Fall Apart, a short novel about a Nigerian tribesman’s downfall at the hands of British colonialists.
The novel became among the most important books of the 20th century, a universally acknowledged starting point for postcolonial, indigenous African fiction, the prophetic union of British letters and African oral culture.

Senate Republicans supported only the $3.35-anhour wage.

A3 Briefly: Nation Senate splits, passes Dem budget version WASHINGTON — An exhausted Senate gave predawn approval Saturday to a Democratic $3.7 trillion budget for next year that embraces nearly $1 trillion in tax increases over the coming decade but shelters domestic programs targeted for cuts by House Republicans. While their victory was by a razor-thin 50-49 vote, it allowed Democrats to tout their priorities. Joining all Republicans voting no were four Democrats who face re-election next year: Sens. Max Baucus of Montana, Mark Begich of Alaska, Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Mark Pryor of Arkansas. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., did not vote. Final approval came at around 5 a.m. EDT (2 a.m. PDT), capping an extraordinary 20 hours of votes and debate. The Senate’s budget would shrink annual federal shortfalls over the next decade to nearly $400 billion, raise unspecified taxes by $975 billion and cull modest savings from domestic programs. In contrast, a rival budget approved by the GOP-run House balances the budget within 10 years without boosting taxes.
Parolee killed DENVER — Investigators are saying for the first time that a man who was killed in a gunfight with Texas authorities is a suspect in the shooting death of Colorado’s state prison system chief. El Paso (Colo.) County sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Jeff Kramer
said Saturday that evidence gathered in Texas after the death of Evan Spencer Ebel provides a “strong, strong lead” in the slaying of Ebel Tom Clements, director of the Colorado Department of Corrections. Kramer stressed that investigators have not yet confirmed a link between Ebel and Clements’ death. Clements was shot Tuesday night when he answered the door of his home in a rural area north of Colorado Springs. Ebel, who was paroled from a Colorado prison in January, was fatally shot by authorities in Texas on Thursday.

Briefly: World France verifies al-Qaida-linked warlord’s death PARIS — Al-Qaida-linked warlord Abou Zeid was killed in combat with French-led troops in Mali in February, France said Saturday, ending weeks of uncertainty about whether one of the group’s leading commanders in the region was dead. In a statement, the office of French President Francois Hollande said the death was “definitively confirmed” and that the killing “marks Zeid an important step in the fight against terrorism in the Sahel.” Chad’s president had said earlier this month that Chadian troops killed Zeid while fighting to dislodge his al-Qaida affiliate in northern Mali. French officials have maintained for weeks that the Algerian was “probably” dead but waited to conduct DNA tests to verify.

Cyprus scrambles NICOSIA, Cyprus — Politicians in Cyprus were racing Saturday to complete an alternative plan raising funds necessary for the country to qualify for an international bailout, with a potential bankruptcy just three days away. Cyprus has been told it must raise 5.8 billion euros ($7.5 billion) to secure 10 billion euros in rescue loans from other European countries that use the single currency, and from the International Monetary Fund. The country’s lawmakers soundly rejected an unpopular initial plan that would have seized up to 10 percent of people’s bank accounts, and is now seeking a way to raise the desperately needed money.

Historians differ over Hitler in gun debate Fuhrer eased weapon laws for non-Jews BY ADAM GELLER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
When the president of Ohio’s state school board posted her opposition to gun control, she used a powerful symbol to make her point: a picture of Adolf Hitler. When a well-known conservative commentator decried efforts to restrict guns, he argued that if only Jews in Poland had been better armed, many more would have survived the Holocaust. In the months since the Newtown, Conn., school massacre, some gun-rights supporters have repeatedly compared U.S. gun control efforts with Nazi restrictions on firearms, arguing that limiting weapons ownership could leave Americans defenseless against homegrown tyrants. But some experts say that argument distorts a complex and contrary history. In reality, scholars say, Hitler loosened the tight gun laws that governed Germany after World War I, even as he barred Jews from owning weapons and moved to confiscate them. Advocates who cite Hitler in the current U.S. debate overlook that Jews in 1930s Germany were a very small population, owned few guns before the Nazis took control, and lived under a dictatorship commanding overwhelming public support and military

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is depicted as Adolf Hitler at a rally in February. might, historians say. While it doesn’t fit neatly into the modern-day gun debate, they said, the truth is that for all Hitler’s unquestionably evil acts, his firearms laws likely made no difference in Jews’ odds of survival. “Objectively, it might have made things worse” if the Jews who fought the Nazis in the 1943 Warsaw ghetto uprising in Poland had more and better guns, said historian Steve Paulsson, an expert on the period whose Jewish family survived the city’s destruction.
Comparisons abound But comparisons between a push by gun-control advocates in the U.S. and Hitler have become so common — in online comments and letters to newspaper editors, at gun rights protests and in public forums — they’re often asserted as fact rather than argument. After some gun advocates rallied at New York’s capitol in Feb-
ruary carrying signs depicting Gov. Andrew Cuomo as Hitler, National Rifle Association President David Keene said the analogy was appropriate. “Folks that are cognizant of the history, not just in Germany but elsewhere, look back to that history and say we can’t let that sort of thing happen here,” Keene, who was the lead speaker at the rally, told a radio interviewer March 1. Those comparisons between gun control now and under Hitler joined numerous other statements, including the one by the Ohio school board president, Debe Terhar, on her personal Facebook page in January and by conservative commentator Andrew Napolitano, writing in The Washington Times. The comparisons recently prompted the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish civil-rights group, to call on critics of gun control to keep Hitler and the Nazis out of the debate. The rhetoric “is such an absurdity and so offensive and just undermines any real understanding of what the Holocaust was about,” said Ken Jacobson, the ADL’s deputy national director. “If they do believe it, they’re making no serious examination of what the Nazi regime was about.” But some gun rights advocates firmly disagree. “People who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it,” said Charles Heller, executive director of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. “I guess if you’re pro-Nazi, they are right. “But if you’re pro-freedom, we call those people liars.”

THREE PEOPLE IN Southern California are under arrest and a fourth is being sought for allegedly selling nitrous oxide — laughing gas — for recreational drug use. Court documents allege that nitrous oxide is being sold by stores under the guise of being used for welding or car racing applications, but in fact is being distributed as a drug used by young people at rave-style parties. Nitrous oxide, authorities and doctors say, is a dangerous prescription drug that is inhaled by recreational users, typically from balloons that are filled from large, compressed gang cylinders.
ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC Holder said he has averted daily furloughs of 3,570 federal prison staffers around the country, moving $150 million from other Justice Department accounts to stave off a serious threat to the lives and safety of correctional staff, inmates and the public. About 38,000 employees of the U.S. Bureau of Prisons supervise 176,000 inmates at 119 institutions. In a memo Friday, Holder said congressional passage of a spending bill keeping the government open through the end of September still provides no relief from $1.6 billion in Justice Department budget reductions.
SAPLINGS FROM THE chestnut tree that stood as a symbol of hope for Anne Frank as she hid from the Nazis for two years in Amsterdam are being distributed to 11 locations in the United States. The tree, one of the Jewish teenager’s only connections to nature while she hid with her family, was diseased and rotted when wind and heavy rain toppled it in August 2010. But saplings grown from its seeds will be planted at locales such as a park for 9/11 victims in New York City, an Arkansas high school in the desegregation battle and Holocaust centers in Michigan and Washington state.

The White House said his intentions were to reassure the region’s politicians and people — particularly in Israel — that he is committed to their security and prosperity.

Log truck driver injured when rig overturns in PA BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” A log truck driver whose rig overturned while on the overpass leading to the northbound lane of the Tumwater Truck Route was in serious condition Saturday in the intensive care unit at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. A 9-1-1 call about a log truck that had rolled and dumped its load as it was turning onto the state Highway 117 overpass from U.S. Highway 101 northbound came in at 10:44 a.m. Friday, said Port Angeles Police
Officer Mike Johnson. Paramedics from the Port Angeles Fire Department and Clallam County Fire District No. 2 found the truckâ€™s driver, 60-year-old David Haight, conscious and talking, Johnson said.
Airlifted to Harborview He was taken to Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles with suspected neck and leg injuries and lacerations, Johnson said. Haight was then airlifted to Harborview because of the extent of his injuries. Johnson said speed was likely a factor in the roll-
over, though the wreck remained under investigation. â€œ[The suspected cause] clearly appears to be speed too fast,â€? Johnson said. Neither drugs nor alcohol was suspected to be involved, Johnson said. The wreck blocked the on ramp leading to the northbound lane of the Truck Route for about four hours Friday afternoon, Johnson said. Two semi-truck tow trucks from Peninsula Towing worked in tandem to lift the seriously damaged log truck cab from off the over-
pass railing and set it back down on its wheels on the pavement, Peninsula Towing Manager Chris Ritchie said. â€œ[The tow trucks] were able to grab the truck at both ends, pick it up and rotate it,â€? Ritchie said. Witnesses at the scene estimated that between 3,000 and 3,400 board feet of logs had spilled into a grassy embankment on the east side of the overpass.

Plans for PA zipline are tossed Clallam denies extension of conditional use permit BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Plans to build a worldclass zipline park in the foothills have been abandoned after a request to extend the projectâ€™s conditional use permit was denied last week by Clallam County Hearing Examiner Chris Melly. Melly h a d approved the original permit more than three years ago. But the Melly project was taking too long to get under way, he said. â€œThe bloom is off the flower,â€? Melly said. Dan Williams, project manager and chief executive officer for Green Planet Zipline Inc., said Melly made the right ruling. â€œI agree with the decision,â€? Williams said. â€œThe project is dead on the Olympic Peninsula.â€? The $1.8 million, zipline-eco-park would have been built on 40 acres of commercial forest leased from the state Department of Natural Resources off Little River Road. Williams said it would have featured the largest zipline course in the world. Now thatâ€™s not going to happen, despite the $300,000 that Williams said has been spent on development and research. â€œWeâ€™re done,â€? Williams said. â€œThereâ€™s no way weâ€™re going to revisit this. â€œWe canâ€™t recommit funding to Port Angeles.â€?
No progress In his three-page opinion issued Tuesday after a March 13 hearing on Williamsâ€™ application to extend the permit, Melly said there has been no â€œsubstantive progressâ€? on the project since December 2009, when he approved the original permit. He cited the state Department of Natural Resourcesâ€™ change of heart. The agency was a coapplicant for the original permit. â€œDNR has turned decidedly negative and opined that â€˜no substantive progress toward the fulfillment of this project has been made.â€™â€?
Williams said an April 8, 2012 Easter Sunday car crash on state Highway 3 near Poulsbo hindered his and Green Planetâ€™s ability to follow through on the permit. Williams, who was the driver, is still undergoing physical therapy, he said. â€œEverything was staged here to do this,â€? Williams said. But DNR officials said there had been no formal lease negotiations.
Areas unresolved â€œThere are many areas of serious concern for DNR that remain unresolved,â€? DNR Olympic Region Manager Susan Trettevik said in an email that was part of the permit hearing record. â€œWe do not currently expect to enter into a leasing agreement regarding this project in the near future.â€? Green Planet had completed various tasks that did not involve making physical improvements to the property, Melly said. The company had devised a wild land fire response plan, trained staff, bought equipment and vehicles and obtained funding for construction, Melly said. They included obtaining building permits, approval of a site plan and submittal of a landscape plan. But the steps taken by Green Planet â€œare of no moment to the department or the neighbors surrounding the project site,â€? he said. According to the Clallam County Code, â€œsubstantial progressâ€? must be made on a project for a permit extension to be granted, Melly said. â€œIf inadequate physical improvements have been made and various and sundry submittals for review to the Department of Community Development have not been made, it can reasonable be said that â€˜substantial progressâ€™ has not been made,â€? he said. â€œHere, the subject property has not been touched by the applicant, and the department has not been request to review plans required as a condition of the [conditional use permit] approval.â€?

Garden-gobbling deer topic of heritage dinner BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” Deer have been chowing down in gardens since the Victorian Age, so the kickoff event of this weekendâ€™s Victorian Heritage Festival presented both traditional and modern ways to discourage the unwelcome diners. â€œWe create this wonderful smorgasbords in our gardens, of delicious petunias and juicy roses,â€? said gardening expert Ann Lovejoy of Bainbridge Island at a Friday night dinner benefiting the festival. â€œThis is picked up by the plant radar on all sorts of animals.â€? The three-day Victorian Heritage Festival continued Saturday with events ranging from fahsion show to bare-knuckled boxing and will wrap up today with tours and teas.
Fundraiser meal About a dozen people attended the $75-per-plate â€œDeer and Rosesâ€? fundraiser at the Silverwater Cafeâ€™s Studio 49 that included Lovejoyâ€™s talk and a venison dinner â€” although several of the attendees chose the vegetarian option. Lovejoy, a book author and columnist, said that in Victorian days, communities would create walled deer gardens where the animals were kept, but that solution doesnâ€™t work today. Poison also was used in the 19th century, with such chemicals as aconite, hellebore, hemlock and nicotine used to discourage deer. Today, bittering agents such as Bitrex are popular. This chemical can be placed in the ground or

sprayed directly on plants and will make everything in the garden taste terrible. Deer, then, will take one bite and look elsewhere for food, Lovejoy said. While effective, gardeners donâ€™t want to use bittering agents in a garden that contains anything they want to eat, Lovejoy said.
Popular, effective One solution that was popular in Victorian times is still effective today. â€œAnimals are repelled by the urine of a male predator that is higher on the food
urine and thatâ€™s not really the way to go.â€? Lovejoy said that fencing is often a good solution. Another possibility is to put fish meal in the garden, which â€œdoesnâ€™t smell bad for humans but is repellent to deer.â€? Lovejoy suggested using water to keep the deer away, using a motion-sensitive system called a Scarecrow. â€œThese are attached to sprinkler systems that go on whenever there is any motion nearby, so this will scare away the deer,â€? she said. â€œYou do need to keep moving them around, because the deer will learn where they are.â€? The name is a misnomer, Lovejoy said. â€œIt doesnâ€™t scare crows at all. When we set them up in the summer, the birds would fly by and set them off on purpose so they could cool off,â€? she said. Lovejoyâ€™s advice centered on repelling deer but she suggested there could come a time when people would want to attract them. â€œIf there is ever a food shortage they are here as a source of protein,â€? she said. â€œThere is at least one here for every family.â€? This was a facetious suggestion. Hunting deer within the city limit is illegal. With this in mind, the venison served on Friday night was imported from New Zealand, chef Tiffany Sowell said.

Lovejoy said. â€œMany of us keep male predators around the house, so if you have one and they are younger and testosterone laden, you just ask them to whiz at each corner of the property. â€œIt is perfectly harmless, and quite good for the plants.â€?

Sequim fugitive to be charged on Monday BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — A Sequim man who had been sought by law enforcement for a little less than a week will be formally charged in Clallam County Superior Court on Monday. Jay J. Dodaro, 33, was arrested Tuesday and booked into the Clallam County jail for investigation of four counts of motor Dodaro vehicle theft, three counts of residential burglary, two counts of possession of a stolen vehicle, two counts of first-degree theft, two counts of second-degree burglary and one count of third-degree theft.
$50,00 bail Dodaro’s bail has been set at $50,000, according to court documents. He remained in the Clallam County jail Saturday. Dodaro also was booked on five warrants, including warrants from Clallam, Jefferson and Thurston counties. Clallam County Sheriff’s deputies, who had been looking for Dodaro since March 15, said they found him hiding in a shipping container behind Sunny Farms in the Carlsborg area. Deputies had been tipped off by citizen who had seen Dodaro in the area. The counts for which Dod-
aro was booked into jail span five separate investigations, all conducted by the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff ’s deputy Eric Munger interviewed Dodaro on Tuesday about these cases and wrote the following narratives, which are in court records: ■ On Dec. 25 last year, a couple whose residence was not identified in court papers called the sheriff’s office and reported their 1995 Toyota Tacoma stolen. The couple had been contacted by the Tumwater Police Department after the truck was recovered there and Dodaro arrested as the driver. Dodaro reportedly admitted to stealing the truck during Tuesday’s interview. ■ On Jan. 30, a Sequim man had reported someone broke into his house and detached garage while he was at home with his son and that more than $5,000 worth of items were stolen from his garage and home in addition to the man’s Honda Ridgeline pickup truck. The homeowner said that a man had rung his doorbell at about 7:30 that night and that “something seemed off about the guy.” The homeowner later helped identify the man as Dodaro. Dodaro told Munger on Tuesday he had committed the burglary but that another man who was with him had taken the truck. ■ Between March 7 and March 8, a Sequim homeowner reported several items stolen
from his house including a $15,000 2004 GMC Canyon pickup truck, a $825 gas-powered tree limber, a notebook computer, and a 5-gallon jar containing $1,500 in dimes, nickels and quarters. The truck was recovered on March 15. Dodaro told Munger he had stolen the truck and committed the burglary, but said he had stolen only the gas-powered tree limber from the shed near the house, according to court documents. ■ On March 15, Munger was told by a confidential source that Dodaro was in the Forks area and driving a motor home. Witnesses at the Hungry Bear Cafe in Beaver, where the motor home had been abandoned, identified Dodaro as the driver of the vehicle, which had been reported stolen in Grays Harbor County. Munger said Dodaro told him he had stolen the motor home in Ocean Shores. ■ On March 16, a Sappho couple reported someone had entered their home in the late afternoon and taken a dish of change, the keys to their 2000 Buick LeSabre and the car itself. Dodaro told Munger he took the LeSabre after finding his way to the home through the surrounding woods and that he drove the car to Sequim, where he was subsequently arrested.

Cutin turn, would filter the ler said. McKeen said in his letter water so it could be used by that â€œany action that city residents. impairs or jeopardizes the functioning of the Ranney well is extremely serious.â€? â€œ[The treatment plant issue] has the ability to cause the premature failure of the Ranney well, which [would] affect the cityâ€™s ability to provide drinking water to residents,â€? McKeen said Saturday. Creachbaum said Friday the park service is considering how best to respond to the city. â€œBecause of the sensitivity surrounding the issues currently, weâ€™d first like to just have a discussion with the city managerâ€™s office and then respond in [a] letter,â€? Creachbaum said. Creachbaum said the Park Serviceâ€™s response letter would most likely be developed in the next week or so. â€œI believe that the park has been making every effort to cooperate with the city, and as we go forward, the National Park Service will continue to cooperate with the city,â€? Creachbaum said. McKeen said he had an â€œimmediate responseâ€? from Creachbaum about the cityâ€™s concerns and will be meeting with her soon. â€œI had a call back from [Creachbaum], and we are getting together to discuss [the issue],â€? McKeen said. The clogging of Elwha Treatment Plant water intakes is forcing the city to rely more heavily on the Ranney well than originally intended, McKeen wrote, something the National Park Service built the plant to avoid.
Protect Ranney well
Overwhelming the plant
â€œBecause I was changing the use of a property that had been vacant for a year and a half, I had to pay for this study I couldnâ€™t afford,â€? she said. City officials consulted a professional engineering manual and determined Engesethâ€™s bakery would draw traffic similar to that of a fast-food restaurant. A compromise solution allowed Engeseth to avoid the fee by closing before the 4 p.m. peak traffic time specified in the manual. â€œAnd they told me if they saw I was open after 4 p.m., they would fine me,â€? she said. City Manager Steve Burkett said the fees are standard practice. â€œIf your business has an impact, it needs to pay for that,â€? Burkett said. â€œThe big boxes out west paid those fees and didnâ€™t blink twice. Itâ€™s standard in every city.â€? While some in the business community blame the cityâ€™s regulations for a 26 percent drop in the number of businesses, city leaders say they have â€œbent over backwardsâ€? to respond to complaints. â€œI donâ€™t know how much more accommodating the city can be right now,â€? Mayor Ken Hays said. â€œIf somebody brings us a problem, we work to solve it.â€? Engeseth was recently allowed to stay open past 4 p.m., after a study showed traffic in her businessâ€™s neighborhood peaked between noon and 2 p.m.
Less surface water is being sent to the city treatment plant then expected, however, because the Elwha treatment plant cannot filter enough of it, city officials said. Before the cityâ€™s water treatment plant was built in 2010, the Ranney well served in a water-filtering capacity and still does, Cutler explained. Cutler would not comment, however, on what would happen if the Ranney well were to become compromised and had to be shut down, as he said abrupt failure is not a concern at this time. â€œI donâ€™t answer hypotheticals,â€? Cutler said.

Karen Kester, owner of Karenâ€™s Quilt Shop in Sequim, holds the sign she previously used to direct shoppers to her store before city sign rules prohibited its placement. cropped up like lavender bushes on the cityâ€™s western edge. The state Department of Revenue ranks the city as 23rd out of 281 in sales tax revenue per capita. But last year, the city had 485 business licenses registered, a steep drop from the 656 registered in 2008. Sales tax revenues fell 9 percent in 2012. Hays said that drop is a correction to a market that boomed beyond sustainability. â€œI think that has absolutely nothing to do with the city and the cityâ€™s fees and the cityâ€™s policies,â€? he said. â€œPeople who expect growth to continue at inflated rates of 6 or 7 percent are kidding themselves,â€? Hays added. Said Burkett: â€œI think it has more to do with the
economy and the market and lower consumer spending.â€? Mike Hallis, owner of Jeremiahâ€™s BBQ, 825 W. Washington St., disagrees. Small businesses donâ€™t get the same attention from the city because they donâ€™t contribute the same tax income as the big boxes, he said. â€œSo if we struggle, it doesnâ€™t make that big an impact on the cityâ€™s books,â€? Hallis said.
Sign ordinance Kester is one of the many business owners who have complained that a new sign ban has eaten into their revenue. Because of the new rule, she canâ€™t place her â€œQuilt Shopâ€? sign on the main drag during the cityâ€™s many events that draw quilters to
the area, she said. Hays questioned the effectiveness of the signs, adding the sign rules were intended to reduce distractions for drivers on Washington Street and to prevent visual â€œclutter.â€? â€œI donâ€™t think a wild proliferation of signs is something we want,â€? he said. But business owners say the restrictions have lessened their ability to attract customers to their specials. Chris Farmer, owner of Dominoâ€™s Pizza, 755 W. Washington St., said his carry-out business fell 67 percent after the city banned him from advertising curbside. Hallis echoed a West Washington Street refrain that the cityâ€™s rules favor downtown businesses, where signs are allowed on sidewalks. â€œWhat I want is a level, predictable playing field for all business, no matter what neighborhood weâ€™re in,â€? Hallis said. But Hays sees the situations as being very different. â€œThose sandwich boards actually work in the downtown area,â€? Hays said, â€œbecause people are strolling, theyâ€™re promenading and looking for things.â€? It is because of that high volume of foot traffic, Hallis said, that downtown merchants donâ€™t have the same need to advertise along the street. â€œItâ€™s hard for us to get people to look at us because theyâ€™re focused on other things as they drive by,â€? he said. Hallis added downtown businesses have an inherent advantage because landscaping and parking around their businesses is city property maintained by the city.
$1.4 million contract To address the Elwha treatment plant clogging issues, the Park Service has inked a $1.4 million contract with Lakewood-based Macnak Construction to replace the current screens, which were cleared with bursts of air, with new ones that will be mechanically cleaned. The screen replacement work should be done by mid-April, Maynes said. Finishing the removal of the Glines Canyon Dam also has been put on hold while the screens are replaced and work continues on figuring out why the Elwha water facilities are not behaving as planned. â€œWe donâ€™t yet have a complete understanding of the issues,â€? Maynes said. â€œWeâ€™re still working on that, and weâ€™re continuing on it until we get the answers.â€? Demolition of the Elwha Dam was finished a year ago, with the takedown of both dams proceeding ahead of schedule. Scientists studying the Elwha restoration project have said the river has already moved some 6 million of the estimated 34 million total cubic yards of sediment that built up behind the once-towering dams. Earlier this year, the National Park Service revised the total amount of sediment expected to come down the river from 24 million cubic yards after a century-old surveying error was discovered.
â€œThe Elwha water facilities were the key to the plan to protect the Ranney well,â€? McKeen wrote. â€œIt was acknowledged that operating the Ranney well during periods of high sedimentation would lead to clogging, resulting in abrupt failure of the well or significantly shortening its operating life.â€? The Ranney well, built in the 1970s on a side channel of the Elwha, collects both surface water and water from an underground aquifer below the riverbed, Cutler explained. Since last fall, the Elwha Water Treatment Plant and the Elwha Surface Water Intake Structure, collectively called the Elwha water facilities, have not been able to provide as much pre-filtered river surface water to the Port Angeles Water Treatment Plant as originally planned, McKeen wrote.

How zombies threaten daughters HAVING A TEENAGE daughter is a bit like living in the middle of a zombie movie. There will be a knock on W. Bruce the door, and when you open Cameron it, you’ll find standing there a smelly, unwashed, slack-faced male wearing ill-fitting clothes and wanting to take your daughter on a date. When she appears from where she has been shoveling on her makeup, he’ll regard her with that zombie-hunger in his eyes. Your natural impulse is to get rid of this one, but doing so doesn’t improve things: There are others out there, a whole zombie army, shambling and moaning toward your home. And what’s really discourag-
ing is that this is just the opening skirmish. As time passes, the zombies become more cunning. They learn how to penetrate your defenses, offering to help you around the house, disarming you with their seeming willingness to respect you. And then suddenly, one of them wants to marry your daughter, and you realize that you were lulled into a false sense of security. Before this happens to you, I suggest you post these 8 Simple Rules to your front door for all the zombies to read and heed. ■ Rule No. 1: If you neglected to ask my permission before you proposed to my daughter, don’t worry about it. You can make it up to me by making sure your wedding is both beautiful and to a different woman. ■ Rule No. 2: There are many, many men your age in this world, but there is only one

woman who is my daughter. She is unique. You, on the other hand, can be replaced at any time. ■ Rule No. 3: It has been my job all my life to make my daughter happy. Now it will be your job. My job will be to make sure you do your job. And don’t think that just because my daughter has picked you that it means you meet my personal standards for what is good for her. I haven’t made up my mind yet and will be evaluating you over a time period known as “forever.” ■ Rule No. 4: You may be wondering how to address me: “Dad”? “Bruce”? “Mr. Cameron”? Let’s end the awkwardness. For the time being, I suggest you stick with “sir.” Sample phrases to help you become accustomed to this term: “May I wash your car for you today, sir?” “Are there any tasks that I can do around the house while

Peninsula Voices This a response to a March 13 letter [“Warming Discounted,” Peninsula Voices] in which the writer claims there is only slight global warming due to natural causes and that global warming is beneficial to plants and human health. He references the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change as his only source of information. This center was founded and is run by members of the Idso family. Prior to founding the CSCDGC, Craig Idso was employed at Peabody Energy, the world’s largest privately owned coal company. Herwood Idso taught at Arizona State University, where he and his research colleagues received more than $1 million from oil, coal and utility interests. Since 1998, the CSCDGC has received $100,000 from Exxon Mobil. There are reputable sources with information
on global temperature changes that do not have ties to the fossil fuel industries. If you think global warming is not a very real threat, I suggest you visit the following websites: NASA (www.giss.nasa.gov/ research/news); NOAA (www.ncdc.noaa.gov/news); National Academy of Sciences (www.nasonline.org); National Geographic News (www.news.national geographic.com), to name just a few. The Environmental Protection Agency (http://epa. gov/climatechange/facts. html) states: “The excess carbon dioxide we are adding to the atmosphere increases global temperatures, leading to climate changes that can harm plants, animals, and humans.” Our current struggles with the economy, unemployment, budget deficits, etc., are nothing compared with what we are facing with global warming.

Let’s define our roles: If you are the sower, I will be your reaper. ■ Rule No. 8: The vows you will be taking commit you to be faithful to my daughter “till death do you part.” Be advised that if you break your vows, I’ll immediately exercise the second part of the contract. Naturally, there’s more to the whole equation than just what I’ve got here. These rules are excerpted from my book 8 Simple Rules for Marrying My Daughter.

I’m not saying you need to be the sole source of income, but I am saying if you don’t take care of my daughter, I will take care of you. ■ Rule No. 6: You do not have a legal contract with my daughter. She can break off the engagement if she wants, and there is nothing you can do about it except change your name and move out of the country. The same goes for you: I would not want you marrying my daughter if you do not truly feel you are the right man for her, nor, if you break it off, would I want you marrying anybody else.

White House and the current economic disaster we are in, the stage is set for another world war that can only lead to our total destruction of the nation as we know it. This has been the Obama plan since before his presidency. The people have been deceived, so only a few recognize the country’s dire situation. The deception has convinced and normalized things that are really not, like same-sex marriage,
abortion, homosexuals, pornography, pedophilia and even contraception. These things have and are taking us to destruction. Because someone chooses not to believe in God does not mean God does not exist and that God will somehow refrain from punishing those who commit the above sins. It will not be just this nation that feels the punishment, because the whole world’s guilty. This is the other factor that points to world war. Larry Winters, Sequim

READERS’ LETTERS, FAXES AND EMAIL
Feeling harassed? Don’t tweet it A FEMALE COMPUTER software developer was fired after tweeting about a group of men she said were making sexual comments at a computer programming conference, fueling an already vigorous debate about gender equality and culture in California’s Silicon Valley. Adria Richards wrote on her blog that she was seated in a ballroom at the Santa Clara conference last Sunday when the men behind her started talking about “big dongles.” A dongle is a device that plugs into a computer, but Richards tweeted that the men made the comment in a sexual way. After hearing their remarks, Richards turned around, took a photo of two men and posted it on Twitter with their alleged comments. Conference organizers said they were concerned by the tweet and quickly met with Richards and the men, who immediately apologized. “We pulled all the individuals aside. We got all sides of the story. They said she was right, and they were very apologetic,” said Jesse Noller, who chaired the conference, PyCon 2013, for people working on Starting immediately, our employees will handle all requests for account changes to a surviving spouse with the greatest sensitivity and at no charge. We are also thoroughly reviewing other policies related to utility-account changes to ensure that they are clear, simple and as easy to use as possible. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
Python programming language. Richards worked for SendGrid, a technology company with offices in Orange County, Calif. CEO Jim Franklin wrote on the company’s website that SendGrid agreed with Richards’ right to report the incident to Pycon staff, but not the way she reported it. “Her decision to tweet the comments and photographs of the people who made the comments crossed the line,” Franklin wrote in a blog post on the site. “Publicly shaming the offenders — and bystanders — was not the appropriate way to handle the situation.” Franklin said Richards put the company’s business in danger, divided the developer community and could no longer be effective at the company. Richards, reached by The Associated Press, said she couldn’t comment. But she confirmed that she was fired. One of the men in the photo Richards posted has also been let go from his job at San Francisco-based mobile game company PlayHaven.

In fact, I believe that these young musicians rank with Olympic National Park in putting Port Angeles on the U.S. map. Especially impressive
“PlayHaven had an employee who was identified as making inappropriate comments at PyCon, and as a company that is dedicated to gender equality and values honorable behavior, we conducted a thorough investigation. The result of this investigation led to the unfortunate outcome of having to let this employee go,” PlayHaven CEO Andy Yang said in a blog posting. The company did not release the name of the fired employee but said a second man in the photo “is still with the company and a valued employee.” Gender gaps are the hot topic in Silicon Valley, in large part because of the bestselling book Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer at Facebook Inc. Sandberg has launched a “Lean In” movement to encourage and support women in the workplace. On Friday, thousands of tweets, blogs and online comments swirled about the incident, some supporting Richards and the “call-out cultures,” others belittling her or asking what she might have done differently.

Panel to study Jefferson parks district BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
CHIMACUM — The first meeting of a committee studying a possible proposal for a joint city-county metropolitan parks district set the stage for the process but left timing and process unresolved. “The two terms that were most important were equality and accessibility,” Kathleen Kler, committee co-chairwoman, said of the Thursday night meeting at the Chimacum Grange. “We want all the people in the county to have equal access to the parks, and build services that are accessible to everyone.” All nine members of the committee attended the meeting along with city and county staff and nine members of the public.
Kler said the role of the panel is to determine what parks would be included in an proposed metropolitan park district, how it would be administered, how much it would cost and where funds would come from.
Ballot measure This second step toward the creation of such a district would be crafting a ballot measure and determining when it would be addressed by the public, which is not the committee’s responsibility. The original goal was to present the proposal to voters on the November ballot, but the ability to do so is uncertain, Kler said. “We have a lot to do,” she said. “And we should do it as quickly as possible because we need to make
sure that facilities are continuously funded. In November 2010, voters approved Proposition 1, which raised the sales tax in Jefferson County 0.03 percent to finance public safety and youth and senior services. Under the law, the city was to receive 40 percent of the new revenue. It committed half of that amount — estimated at $212,000 — through 2015 to support two county facilities within the city limit: the Port Townsend Community Center, a recreation center at 620 Tyler St., and Memorial Field, 550 Washington St. The board of a joint citycounty metropolitan parks district, which would be a junior taxing district, would have the authority to levy up to 75 cents per $1,000 of
assessed valuation, or $187.50 annually for a house valued at $250,000. Kler said it is important for the public to participate in the process and tell what park functions are essential, what they are willing to pay for and which parks should be developed and supported.
48 total parks She said there are 21 county and 27 city parks that could be part of a park district, although not all of them can be subsidized. “The public may not know how many wonderful parks they already own,” Kler said. “They should tell us which ones are important and how they want them used.” While the boundaries are not defined there are
some absolutes. The proposed district would not include Brinnon or Coyle, as both areas have an existing park district. While the parks to be included are yet to be determined, Kler said that Memorial Field, The Rec Center and the Port Townsend Pool, which is located at Mountain View Commons at 1925 Blaine St., would most likely be included. Kler said the next committee meeting is tentatively scheduled to take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. April 10 at a location to be determined. Other members of the committee, who were chosen either for their geographical location or area of expertise are Garth McHattie of Marrowstone Island, chairman of the Jefferson
County Parks and Recreation Advisory Board; Rich Stapf of the Quimper Peninsula, who serves on both panels; Mike Zimmerman of Marrowstone Island, a parks professional; Herb Cook, a nonprofit service provider of the GardinerDiscovery Bay area; Mike Evans of Kala Point, who is involved in sports leagues; park facilities volunteers Doug Hubert of Port Ludlow and Susie Learned of Port Hadlock; Jeff Randall of Port Townsend, who is interested in the public pool; and Rosemary Sikes of the Audubon Society.

House board eyes tax on pot branding BY RACHEL LA CORTE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA — A House committee has held a public hearing on a measure that would tax marijuana brand names and trademarks likely to be introduced in the state of Washington when the sale of recreational marijuana starts at the end of the year. The bill heard by the House Finance Committee on Friday calls for a tax of $3.60 per $1,000 of assessed value of “all trademarks, trade names, brand names, patents and copyrights related to marijuana.” It does not say how those values would be determined and instead says the Department of Revenue can adopt rules for determining those amounts. In November, voters approved Initiative 502, which allows adults over age 21 to have up to an ounce of pot. The state is due to start issuing licenses to marijuana growers, processors and retail stores, with the marijuana taxed 25 percent at each stage.

The free event, featureing a variety of artworks created from driftwood, continues from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today.
State can benefit Democratic Rep. Jeff Morris of Mount Vernon, the sponsor of the trademark bill — House Bill 1976 — told the committee that Washington, along with Colorado, which also passed a legalization measure in the fall, could benefit as the new industry moves to register brand names or trade names. “I think that this reflects

the uniqueness of the situation,” Morris said. “What was the value of Marlboro as a trade name back when it was filed as a trade name or brand name?” Under the bill, revenue from the tax would go into a special fund for agricultural research tied to health benefits. During Friday’s hearing, Morris specifically cited research being done at Washington State University on creating plasma from wheat and making gluten-free wheat. “It’s that type of research that I’m hoping this money would target,” he said.
Concerns about bill Chris Mulick, director of state relations for WSU, testified that the university has concerns about the bill. He said WSU currently receives $21 million a year to support agriculture research, and there are concerns that if the measure passes, the tax on brand names would supplant state funding. Mulick also noted concerns surrounding the state’s efforts to persuade the federal government not to sue to block the law from taking effect. The U.S. Justice Department still has not announced its intentions. “This is a resource that at this time remains highly uncertain,” Mulick said. Morris said the tax is not meant to replace state funding of research. A fiscal note done by the state Office of Financial Management says the amount of potential revenue from the tax is unknown for several reasons, including the difficulty estimating a value for a an industry that doesn’t yet exist, as well as uncertainty caused by the illegality of marijuana under federal law.
