Port Angeles-Sequim-West End

Democrats propose gas tax hike Included in the package is nearly $900 million from a 0.3 percent hike in the hazardous-substance tax and almost $200 million generated from new Clibborn county auditor fees of $5 for vehicle-tab renewals and $12 for title transfers. In addition to $1 billion for state and local governments to maintain infrastructure, the package is meant to fund $3 billion to help pay for new and existing road projects, plus $123 million to pay for a third new 144-car ferry.

Transportation package would raise $9.8 billion BY JONATHAN KAMINSKY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OLYMPIA — House Democrats unveiled a transportation revenue package Wednesday that would raise $9.8 billion over the next decade with the help of a 10-cent gas tax bump, a new annual car-tab fee pegged at 0.7 percent of the vehicle’s value and more than $3 billion in new bonds. Also included is a new $25 sales fee on bicycles sold for $500

or more, which is expected to bring in $1 million over the next ten years. The plan, dubbed Connecting Washington, was introduced by Rep. Judy Clibborn, D-Mercer Island, chairwoman of the House Transportation Committee. “If we do nothing, we will watch the infrastructure crumble,” said Clibborn. “Or . . . we can come together as House and Senate, [and] as Democrats and Republicans, pass this bill.”

Included in that amount is $1 billion for connecting State Route 167 near Tacoma and State Route 509 near Seatac to Interstate 5, $450 million to complete the Columbia River Crossing and several hundred million dollars to extend Interstate 405 HOT lanes from Bellevue to Renton. Not included is the Alaskan Way Viaduct tunnel replacement in Seattle.

Republicans skeptical Republicans responded to Clibborn’s proposal with skepticism. “We know that we have a need within the transportation system,” said Sen. Curtis King, R-Yakima, co-chair of the Senate

Transportation Committee. “It’s whether this is the right time to address that need.” Rep. Ed Orcutt, R-Kalama, the ranking minority member of the House Transportation Committee, was more blunt in his criticism of the proposal, which would increase the current gas tax of 37.5 cents per gallon by 2 cents annually over five years. “We should make sure our tax dollars go further before we reach further into the taxpayers’ pockets,” he said. In order to be passed into law, any new taxes would have to receive a two-thirds vote in both chambers of the Legislature or simple majorities in both houses, followed by a vote of the people.

Sponsors OK’d for waterfront Certain groups to be excluded BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ

who give predetermined amounts will be listed on a sponsorship wall to be built as part of the waterfront improvements rather than on individually sponsored items, according to the newly approved policy.


Not all businesses

PORT ANGELES — Private residents and businesses, with some exceptions, now can donate money and sponsor multiple aspects of the extensive improvements planned for the waterfront west of downtown Port Angeles. City Council members unanimously approved a policy Tuesday night to allow residents and businesses to make tax-deductible donations to sponsor pieces of the improvements planned for the shoreline west of North Oak Street, improvements collectively referred to as the city’s waterfront transportation improvement plan. The $3.9 million esplanade construction under way along West Railroad Avenue is part of the larger $17 million improvement plan that encompasses more than 10 separate capital projects. The proposed improvements also include a new West End Park, an estimated $3.2 million endeavor slated for the waterfront just east of the Valley Creek Estuary. Businesses or private residents

Not all businesses will be allowed to contribute. The policy forbids, for example, political or religious organizations or businesses that primarily deal in alcohol, tobacco, firearms, marijuana or pornography from participating in the sponsorship program. City Councilwoman Sissi Bruch asked why political or religious groups would be barred. Nathan West, the city’s community and economic development director, replied that the prohibitions in the new policy are standard across the city’s existing sponsorship programs. “We’ve had this reviewed by the legal department, and [those specific groups] are things we felt it important to have excluded,” he said. The city will not include any advertisements on the sponsorship wall, according to the resolution, nor will a donation translate to any form of ownership of any part of the proposed improvements.

Twilight writer plots another book trilogy STEPHENIE MEYER’S THE Host doesn’t have much in common with her Twilight series, except maybe the potential for a franchise. Meyer is working on a sequel to the 2008 novel she began writing as an escape from the editing Meyer of Eclipse, the third book in the Twilight vampire saga. And now that it, too, has reached the big screen, she’s got more books in mind. “Once you’ve created characters that have life to them, unless you kill them all, you know where their stories go. You’re always aware of what happens next,” Meyer told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday.

“I’ve got outlines for the next books. I would hope that this would be a threebook arc, but we’ll see.” At an advance screening of “The Host,” which premieres March 29, Meyer said she wrote the book when she was “kind of overwhelmed with vampires and red ink.” “The Host” trades the vampires and werewolves of Meyer’s previous works for space invaders. An alien race takes over the minds of their human hosts but leaves their bodies intact so they can perfect the planet they believed humans were ruining. One human, a young woman named Melanie Stryder, refuses to give up her head space so easily. Saoirse Ronan plays both Melanie and her alien invader in the film. Max Irons and Jake Abel play her love interests. What “The Host” does have in common with the Twilight saga is a love triangle, though one complicated further by two distinct entities sharing one body.

Passings By The Associated Press

PETRO VLAHOS, 96, a two-time Academy Award winner whose blue- and green-screen technique on movies like “Mary Poppins” and “Ben Hur” made the modern blockbuster possible, has died. His family said he died Feb. 10, according to the Los Angeles Times. No other details were released. The night before his death, an ailing Mr. Vlahos was on the minds of many at the Scientific and Technical Oscars ceremony, where he’d been a constant presence through the years and where his acolytes in socalled “composite photography” took home most of the trophies. Others had tried “composite photography” before, combining separately filmed actors and sets into one shot, but results had been spotty, and actors often appeared with a halo of light around them that killed the effect. Mr. Vlahos took huge leaps forward in the process with the chariot race in the 1959 Charlton Heston epic “Ben Hur” and in Julie Andrews’ and Dick Van Dyke’s romp through a chalk-drawing wonderland in 1964’s “Mary Poppins.” He kept up his partnership with Disney in effects-

heavy films like 1969’s “The Love Bug” and 1971’s “Bedknobs and Broomsticks.” When in subsequent decades sci-fi and fantasy films became dominant at the box office, Mr. Vlahos’ techniques became dominant in filmmaking, essential to movies like “Avatar” and to every film in the “Star Wars” saga. He and his collaborators won an Academy Award for their composite processes in 1965, and he and his son, Paul Vlahos, shared another Oscar in 1995 for the bluescreen advances made by Ultimatte.

A3 Briefly: Nation Ex-Rep. Jackson pleads guilty to using funds WASHINGTON — Former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., holding back tears, entered a guilty plea Wednesday in federal court to criminal charges that he engaged in a scheme to spend $750,000 in campaign funds on personal items. He faces 46 to 57 months in prison under a plea deal. Before entering the plea to the conspiracy charge, JackJackson son told U.S. District Judge Robert L. Wilkins, “I’ve never been more clear in my life” in his decision to plead guilty. Sentencing is scheduled for June 28, and Wilkins is not bound by the plea agreement. Jackson is free until then. Since last June, Jackson has been hospitalized twice at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., for treatment of bipolar disorder and other issues, and he stayed out of the public eye for months, even during the election. His attorney said that Jackson’s health is “not an excuse” for his actions, “just a fact.”

Midwestern storm ST. LOUIS — Hundreds of snowplows and salt spreaders

Officials feared the winter storm would be the worst in the Midwest since the Groundhog Day blizzard in 2011. A two-day storm that began Feb. 1, 2011, created white-out conditions so intense that Interstate 70 was shut down across the entire state of Missouri.

$1 billion raised SAN FRANCISCO — Stanford University has set a new record for college fundraising, becoming the first school to collect more than $1 billion in a single year, according to a report released Wednesday. For the eighth straight year, Stanford ranked first in the Council for Aid to Education’s annual college survey, which shows that elite institutions continue to grab a disproportionate share of donor dollars. In the 2012 fiscal year, roughly 3,500 U.S. colleges and universities raised $31 billion, 2.3 percent more than the previous year. The record was set in 2008, when schools took in $31.6 billion before the financial crisis hit the United States. “We’re climbing out of the doldrums,” said survey director Ann Kaplan.

Firefighters battle a blaze at JJ’s restaurant at the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Mo., the scene of a massive explosion Tuesday night.

Body found in rubble of Kansas City eatery Workers apparently struck gas line before huge blast THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Search crews at the site of a massive explosion that destroyed a popular Kansas City, Mo., restaurant recovered one body Wednesday, and the city’s mayor said there was no certainty the rubble wasn’t concealing other victims. Mayor Sly James declined to say whether the body belonged to a man or a woman, though authorities have been looking for a woman who worked at JJ’s restaurant and was seen there before the Tuesday evening blast and reported missing afterward. “Since this started without a list of those in the building . . . those search-and-rescue people are out there going through the rubble and will continue to go through the rubble,” James said. “They will continue to investi-

gate until weather shuts it down.” Crews using cadaver dogs and heavy equipment have been searching the site feverishly ahead of a major winter storm bearing down on the city. James said 15 people were injured in the blast. Six were still hospitalized Wednesday. The blast occurred after a construction crew apparently struck a natural-gas line.

Tall smoke plume The explosion was felt for nearly a mile around the restaurant, shattering glass in nearby buildings and sending a smoke plume above the city’s prized outdoor shopping district. JJ’s was a beloved fixture on the city’s culinary scene for more than 27 years. It consistently received high ratings from con-

tributors to Zagat’s restaurant guides, both for its food and its list of hundreds of wines. The blast happened at around 6 p.m. Tuesday, when the dinner crowd would have been filing into JJ’s and the many other restaurants in the upscale Country Club Plaza shopping and dining district. A construction project had been going on across a narrow street from JJ’s for seven years. Firefighters had received a call at about 5:15 p.m. that a construction worker had hit a gas line, and they conferred with employees for Missouri Gas Energy, Fire Chief Paul Berardi said. It wasn’t clear Wednesday how hard firefighters or utility officials worked to evacuate the restaurant after gas was first noticed. Dr. John Verstraete, who works at Plaza Physicians Group nextdoor to JJ’s, told The Kansas City Star several office employees smelled gas Tuesday afternoon. A gas company employee entered the medical office just before 6 p.m. and recommended evacuating, he said.

White House announces new anti-theft trade plan THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON —The Obama administration announced a broad new effort Wednesday to fight the growing theft of American trade secrets following fresh evidence linking cyberstealing to China’s military. The plan includes a new diplomatic push to discourage intellectual property theft abroad along with better coordination at home to help U.S. companies protect themselves. The administration says indications are that economic espionage is increasing, not only through electronic intrusion over the Internet but also through the recruitment of former employees of U.S. companies with knowledge

Quick Read

of inside trade information. “Trade-secret theft threatens American businesses, undermines national security and places the security of the U.S. economy in jeopardy,” said a report from the White House. “These acts also diminish U.S. export prospects around the globe and put American jobs at risk.”

Cyberattack accusation Earlier this week, a Virginiabased cybersecurity firm, Mandiant, accused a secret Chinese military unit in Shanghai of years of cyberattacks against more than 140 U.S. companies. The accusations and supporting evidence increased pressure on the United

States to take more action against the Chinese for what experts say were years of systematic espionage. The Chinese government denied being involved in cybertheft, with China’s defense minister calling the Mandiant report deeply flawed. China’s Foreign Ministry said that country also has been a victim of hacking, much of it traced to the United States. Wednesday’s Obama administration report did not specifically target any one violator, but the China problem is evident in the case studies it cited. Those involved the theft of hundreds of millions of dollars in trade secrets by former employees of U.S. corporations.

FORMER SEN. PETE Domenici, 80, of New Mexico fathered a son outside of his marriage more than 30 years ago with the then-24-year-old daughter of a Senate colleague, the retired Republican has acknowledged. The news stunned many who know the state’s longest-serving senator. Domenici and Michelle Laxalt, now 58, sent statements to the Albuquerque Journal identifying their son as 34-yearold Nevada attorney Adam Paul Laxalt. Laxalt, daughter of former Sen. Paul Laxalt, R-Nev., said she chose to raise her son as a single parent. “One night’s mistake led to pregnancy more than 30 years ago,” she said.

VICE PRESIDENT JOE Biden and the parents of a student killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School are scheduled to take part today in a gun-violence conference at the Connecticut university Adam Lanza briefly attended.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said the meeting site wasn’t chosen because of Lanza’s attendance there.

A NEW YORK developer of the World Trade Center complex is accusing an airline of reneging on a promise not to use an “act of war” defense against property claims resulting from the 9/11 attacks. Developer Larry Silverstein asked a judge Wednesday to reject American Airlines’ claim that the 2001 terrorist attack was an act of war that should shield the airline from liability. Lawyers for Silverstein said the aviation industry got a massive federal bailout that protected it after the attacks. An American Airlines spokesman said Silverstein’s claims have “no factual or legal support.”

A HUMAN RIGHTS Watch report released Wednesday calls Mexico’s anti-drug offensive “disastrous” and cites 249 cases of disappearances, with evidence they were carried out by the military or law enforcement. The report says the disappearances follow a pattern in which security forces detain people without warrants at checkpoints, homes or workplaces. When victims’ families ask about their relatives, security forces deny the detentions or instruct them to look for their loved ones at police stations or army bases. Human Rights Watch criticized former President Felipe Calderon for ignoring the problem.

PORT ANGELES — Appointments are being taken now for the SmileMobile, a modern dental office on wheels that brings oral health services to children from families of limited income, which will be at Jefferson Elementary School for two weeks, March 4-15. “Although dentists and assistants will schedule follow-up visits with clients from the fall SmileMobile visit, we are now taking new appointments,” said Tina Smith-O’Hara, Port Angeles School District spokeswoman. “Any families interested in the SmileMobile program should call and register

More than a dozen community leaders met Feb. 14 at City Hall to discuss a timeline for planning a new art center. Attendees included Fleck, retired businessman Bert Paul, Forks Outfitters owner Bruce Paul, Realtor Carrol Lunsford and Quillayute Valley School District Superintendent Diana Reaume. “What they seemed to indicate was strong community sentiment that the building should be replaced,” Fleck said.

The city had insured the IOOF hall, out of which the Latino-themed La Tienda store also did business, for up to $3.7 million. La Tienda has since reopened in the Almar Building in the 100 block of Bogachiel Way, Fleck said. The valuation process should be completed and a replacement value established by mid-March, after which the City Council could decide on where a new art center would be built and what form it will take. One option for consideration: The art center’s footprint might include the former Dazzled by Twilight site, where the historic Olympic Pharmacy was located, and which is for sale for $74,500 under a listing by Forks Real Estate. The property is assessed at $36,450, according to the Clallam County Assessor’s Office. “We have folks wanting us to consider the inclusion of that,” Fleck said Tuesday. “We’re just not there yet. “How we determine all that is part of our challenge.” Plans for a new building would be drawn up with the involvement of the University of Washington School of Environmental and Forest Sciences and the UW’s College of Architecture &

Contract given Briefly . . . on to upgrade plant Hearing Stenson trial PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — The National Park Service has awarded a $1.3 million contract for upgrades to the diversion pump station intake at an industrial water-treatment plant on the lower Elwha River. Fish screens and pumps at the plant — which provides initial water treatment for the city’s industrial water supply, the Nippon Paper Industries USA Inc. mill, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife’s fishrearing channel and the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe’s new fish hatchery — were clogged with organic material and sediment after heavy rains last fall. Macnak Construction LLC of Lakewood has been awarded the $1,365,021 contract, Olympic National Park spokeswoman Barb Maynes announced this week. Off-site fabrication will begin immediately with onsite work scheduled to begin in mid-March. New intake screens are expected to be operational by early April. The plant does not treat the Port Angeles municipal

water. That comes from a nearby well and was not affected by the rush of leaves, twigs, branches and sediment. The plant is one of several mitigation projects built to protect Elwha River water users from impacts of high sediment flows related to removing two dams on the Elwha River in the $325 million Elwha restoration project. Dam removal frees the Elwha River, which was blocked by dams built without fish ladders, and allows all salmon to return to more than 70 miles of habitat. A park contractor began razing the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams in September 2011. Elwha Dam was demolished by last March. Because of the upgrade to the treatment plant, removal of the upper Glines Canyon Dam, of which only 30 percent remains, has been put on hold. A new work schedule for dam removal has not yet been finalized, but park officials said the project will be finished well before the contract ends in September 2014.

postponed PORT ANGELES — A status hearing for Darold Stenson was postponed Wednesday because Clallam County Superior Court Judge S. Brooke Taylor was presiding over a Kitsap County trial as a visiting judge. The hearing for Stenson, who is charged with twocounts of aggravated murder, was Stenson continued to March 6 at 10 a.m. Stenson, 60, was convicted in 1994 for the shooting deaths of his wife and business partner at his bird farm near Sequim. The conviction was overturned by the state Supreme Court last May. Stenson’s second trial is scheduled for jury selection July 8. Taylor is considering a motion for a change of venue and whether to allow Stenson’s three attorneys to remain on the case.

Urban Planning, Fleck said. Students would assist in developing “potential proposals associated with replacing a building with a sustainable wood building with a life of 80 to 100 years,” according to a written timeline supplied by Fleck. The schedule envisions a “partnership with UW in their effort to create a product showcase and design standards for using Northwest lumber in multistory building construction.”

‘Multifunctional’ space The design would “integrate art, media and similar subjects,” and include “multifunctional community space,” according to the timeline. “Building will define, reflect our community,” it said. “Imagine a ‘New Forks’ modern, rural town.” Building plans would be developed by September and reviewed by the community by October, when the project would go out for bid. The bid opening and award would be in January 2014.

‘Bandit’ charges MOUNT VERNON — The legal troubles aren’t over for the “Barefoot Bandit” who led police on a two-year crime spree in stolen boats, cars and planes. Colton Harris-Moore already is serving a sevenyear prison term and now faces new theft and burglary charges in Washington. The 21-year-old pleaded guilty to state and federal charges stemming from a 2010 cross-country run that took him from the Pacific Northwest to the Bahamas, where he was arrested in a hail of bullets. The Skagit County prosecutor declined to sign on to the plea agreement resolving state charges and this month filed new charges. Harris-Moore is accused of stealing a plane belonging to an Anacortes couple and flying it to the Orcas Island airport. Peninsula Daily News





PT council mulls library bond issue PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

according to the city. Timmons said the city has weathered a 10 percent decrease in personnel since the recession began. “We have not asked the library to make a similar sacrifice,” he said. “I hope you can respect that.” In a memo dated Feb. 14, Timmons proposed three options: move forward with a plan for a $3 million bond amount, raise the amount up to $6 million or consider other options, such as renovating the closed Lincoln Building, owned by the Port Townsend School District, for use as a library facility.

to keep the project going.” In May, about 60 percent of the library’s collection was moved to the Mountain View campus at 1919 Blaine St., where it is expected to remain until it is returned to the Carnegie Library when renovation is finished in early 2015.

Rosemary Sikes said raising taxes will be “a hard sell.” “If this bond issue is on the same ballot as the metropolitan parks district, then neither one will pass since people will vote for one or the other,” she added. Library Director Theresa Percy said after the meeting that “it’s a complicated issue. “We have to see what fits in with the overall financial plan for the city and work

“It’s not that they don’t want to pay; they can’t pay,” Gray said. Rick Jahnke opposes a library bond issue — for now. “I’m not against libraries. No one is. They are kind of like warm puppies,” he said. “But I hope you don’t give in to the well-meaning single-mindedness of a few and don’t go forward [with a bond] until other community needs are discussed.”

Pro and con Most of those testifying favored going forward with a bond issue. “I own six lots in the city,” Sheila Khalov said. “I pay my property taxes on time and will gladly include the additional amount to make the new library expansion open to every single person in Jefferson County and beyond.” Morgan Hanna said she values “the soaring ceiling and the warm-wooded beauty of our unique library because I have lived with libraries that seem modeled after my middle school cafeteria. “Our library lends the same grace to the page that a real book does,” she added. Councilman Bob Gray said many people can’t afford higher taxes.

Garages: Mountain view a homeowners association to enforce limits on the size of garages in their neighborhood. Citywide limits on garages, he said, could detract people who want such amenities from buying homes in the city. Hugo, though, said city regulations would provide a layer of official enforcement that homeowners associations don’t have. Commission Chairman Jon Wendt said owning a home within the city limit brings with it a responsibility to “live in harmony with your neighbors.” “If you want to build a big barn, you should be living in the country,” Wendt said.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Thursday, February 21, 2013 PAGE


Sounds like a bloody horror movie AT THE END of 1995 and stretching into January 1996, the federal government “shut down” because of an impasse between President Bill Clinton and House Republicans led by then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich. The issue was increased Cal taxes vs. less Thomas spending. Sound familiar? The government reopened when a bipartisan agreement was reached to balance the budget by 2003. It wasn’t for reasons that included, but were not limited to, two wars. Now the national debt is racing toward an unsustainable $17 trillion. This time around it isn’t about closing government. It’s about “sequestration,” which President Barack Obama, the Democrats and their bigmedia toadies are styling as economic Armageddon. On Tuesday, following another vacation and a round of golf with the disgraced Tiger Woods, President Obama appeared in the Eisenhower Executive Office building next to the White House. Behind him on risers, looking like a church choir but without the robes, were his usual Greek chorus of potential victims should Republicans cut spending

by a single dollar. The president said the cuts from sequestration would be “brutal” if lawmakers allow “this meat-cleaver approach to take place.” Sounds like a bloody horror movie, doesn’t it? Military readiness would be hurt, he claimed, if these cuts were allowed to happen. Investments in energy curtailed, medical research impaired, teacher layoffs (I wasn’t aware the federal government paid teacher salaries) and emergency responders couldn’t respond. Once again, the president offered up the old bait and switch: “targeted spending cuts” along with “closing tax loopholes.” As has happened before, if Republicans agree to this (which they had better not if the party is to survive) they’ll likely get inconsequential “cuts,” if they get any at all, but tax hikes will occur right away. More importantly, any new revenue will likely not reduce the debt because Democrats in Congress are noted for spending new revenue, and they won’t deal with the major reason for the debt: entitlements. Last Sunday’s New York Times was a kind of preview of Obama’s Tuesday remarks.

enacted on Jan. 2.” The looming cuts, Makin noted, are “minuscule” when compared to the overall debt. The president got his tax hike in the fiscalcliff debate. To ask for more now without significant spending cuts, entitlement reform and a rewritten tax code aligns him with the extortionists who ruled Chicago during the Roaring ’20s. In his oath of office, the president promised to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Instead, he appears to be shredding it.

Peninsula Voices Grading schools I personally find the idea of rating schools based on the academic performance of the students to be utterly ridiculous [“Most Area Schools Awarded C’s,” PDN, Feb. 20]. Education is a partnership among the students, their parents and the school. I would be all for this type of “grading” if the other two parts of the partnership were included in the grade.

We’ve gone to incredibly great lengths to remove any shred of responsibility from the students and their families. It’s much more convenient to blame Johnny’s teacher for his failure to succeed than to admit that he (and his parents) play an important role in the educational process. Why not have these grading committees pay a visit to Johnny’s home? “I’m sorry Mr. and Mrs. Smith, but you have received an ‘F’ for your

involvement in Johnny’s education. “Allowing him to spend all his time playing video games instead of doing homework, is poor parenting. “Oh . . . and Johnny, we couldn’t find one shred of homework or a textbook in your house. You also deserve the ‘F’ you received from your teacher.” The state and federal government require that we provide public education. They cannot mandate

Israel-Palestine issues go Hollywood THE ACADEMY AWARDS ceremony Sunday will make history this year with the first-ever nomination of a feature documentary made by a Palestinian. “5 Broken Cameras” was Amy filmed and Goodman directed by Emad Burnat, a resident of the occupied Palestinian West Bank town of Bil’in, along with his Israeli filmmaking partner Guy Davidi. What does a Palestinian farmer wear on the red carpet in Hollywood? We were almost prevented from knowing, as Burnat, his wife and 8-year-old son were detained at Los Angeles International Airport and threatened with deportation. Despite his formal invitation from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as an Oscar-nominated filmmaker, it took the intervention of Oscarwinning documentarian Michael

Moore, who now sits on the Academy Board of Governors, followed by Academy attorneys, for Burnat and his family to gain entry into the country. “5 Broken Cameras” is in competition at the Oscars with an Israeli documentary, “The Gatekeepers,” a film that features interviews with the six surviving former directors of Israel’s Shin Bet, the country’s secret internal security service, which functions as sort of hybrid of the U.S. FBI and CIA. In the film, all six condemn the current practices of Israeli occupation and settlement expansion. In a remarkable case of life imitating art, as celebrities gather for the entertainment industry’s biggest gala of the year, the Israel/Palestine conflict is being played out on the streets of Tinseltown. Hours after regaining his freedom, Burnat issued a statement that read: “Last night, on my way from Turkey to Los Angeles, my family and I were held at U.S. immigration for about an hour and questioned about the purpose of my

visit to the United States. “Immigration officials asked for proof that I was nominated for an Academy Award for the documentary ‘5 Broken Cameras,’ and they told me that if I couldn’t prove the reason for my visit, my wife Soraya, my son Gibreel and I would be sent back to Turkey on the same day.” He went on: “After 40 minutes of questions and answers, Gibreel asked me why we were still waiting in that small room. I simply told him the truth: ‘Maybe we’ll have to go back.’ “I could see his heart sink.” Gibreel’s birth in 2005 was the motivation for the film. Emad Burnat got his first camera then, to record his fourth son growing up. At that time, the government of Israel began building the separation wall through Bil’in, provoking a campaign of nonviolent resistance from the Palestinian residents and their supporters. As Burnat recorded the protests, his cameras were smashed or shot one by one, destroyed by the violent response from the Israeli army and the armed

Israeli settlers. Dror Moreh is the Israeli director of “The Gatekeepers.” Moreh told me: “The settlements are the biggest obstacle to peace. If there is something that will prevent peace, it’s the settlements and the settlers. “I think this is the largest and most influential and most powerful group in Israeli politics. They’re basically dictating the policy of Israel in the last years. “I think that definitely for the Palestinians, the settlements are the worst enemy in their way to the homeland. “When they see everywhere, in Judea and Samaria now, the settlements that are built like mushrooms after rain, they see how their country is shrinking.” Both “5 Broken Cameras” and “The Gatekeepers” are up for the Oscar against other very compelling nominees: “How to Survive a Plague,” about the AIDS epidemic; “The Invisible War,” about rampant, unprosecuted rape in the U.S. military; and “Searching for Sugar Man,” about renewal for a musician long thought dead. Burnat finished his statement

Gov. Inslee: State must lead in fight

PORT ANGELES — The faces wear dreamy expressions, with eyes gazing away or closed in imaginary sojourns. And these creatures — people, horses, bears, birds — are all together under one roof at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center thanks to their creators, Robin and John Gumaelius. It makes sense that the 26 mixed-media sculptures in the Gumaelius show look like travelers. The couple who made them come from “the middle of nowhere,” as John puts it. He and Robin live outside Cosmopolis, Grays Harbor County, in a house John built on stilts. “Pillars” is the name of their first Port Angeles show at the fine arts center at 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd. The title comes from the fact that many of the pieces are on the tall side.





Mixed-media creations by John and Robin Gumaelius have arrived at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center. The artists will give a talk and stay for a reception this Friday afternoon.

Opening reception John and Robin will give a talk on their art at the center at 3 p.m. Friday, then stay for the show’s opening reception from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. Both events are free to the public. This pair is as unusual as the two’s porcelainwood-metal sculptures. They’re full-time artists and have four children and 10 galleries showing their work, from Ashland and Portland, Ore., to the Patricia Rovzar Gallery in downtown Seattle. They do not have a web-

The Gumaelius children, three girls and a boy, range in age from 3 to 10. The family also has two dogs, two cats, chickens and ducks at their rural place. “Our studio looks over the garden,” Robin notes in a handwritten statement titled “Artist Ramblings.” Now and then, chickens wander into the art space, but “they are not nearly as inspiring as our kids, who tumble into our laps, steal our shoes, poke our bellies, argue and throw clay wads

while we’re working.” “Pillars” will stay through May 5 at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center gallery, which is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To learn more about the show and other activities at the center, visit www. or phone 360457-3532.

OLYMPIA — Testifying before a state Senate committee, Gov. Jay Inslee asserted that Washington state is ideally positioned to lead the fight against climate change and urged lawmakers to help him move quickly on the issue. Speaking to the Senate Energy, Environment and Telecommunications Committee on Wednesday, Inslee advocated for a measure to hire an outside group to advise him on how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while increasing the share of energy created in-state. The group’s report, due in October, would evaluate how other states and countries are addressing climate change. Inslee said climate change threatens disparate industries in the state, from downhill skiing and winemaking, which rely on a steady snowfall, to oyster cultivation, which is threatened by ocean acidification. Ocean acidification, Inslee said, is climate change’s “little evil twin.”

Salmon derby a huge success JERRY THOMAS HAD quite the four-day stretch earlier this week. On Saturday, Thomas caught Lee a big fish. Horton Sunday was his 68th birthday. That big fish he caught Saturday won him $10,000 on Monday. And finally, on Tuesday, he celebrated his wedding anniversary. Thomas, who is from Mount Vernon, is the grandprize winner of the 2013 Olympic Peninsula Salmon Derby, which was held last weekend. The derby, put on the by the Gardiner Salmon Derby Association, is being hailed as a success. “Good weather and a strengthening economy gave us a great derby,” association president Dan Tatum said. “This was a great event, and the fishing results prove it — we caught more fish than ever before in recent memory.” A record 351 winter blackmouth chinook salmon were submitted, which topped the 2011 record of 248 fish, with an average weight of 7.52 pounds (fish weights are in decimal pounds, not pounds and ounces). Approximately 820 tickets were sold, more than 175 more than were sold for last year’s derby. Thomas reeled in his 15.9-pound blackmouth at 8:10 a.m. on Saturday, the opening day of the derby, and had to wait two and a half days to see if his big catch would remain atop the prize ladder. His winner was caught just west of Protection Island using an orange herring. Lauren Selvig of Port Orchard won the $2,000 second prize with a 14.8-pound salmon, while Don White of Hansville took home the $1,000 third prize with a 14.35-pound blackmouth. The highest-finishing North Olympic Peninsula angler was Mark Reynolds of Port Angeles, who took seventh place with a 13.4-pound fish. In all, there were 45 winning fish. The smallest prize-winner was 10.1 pounds, and the average prize-winning weight was 11.66 pounds. The prize list totaled $21,995. The large cash prizes were funded through derby ticket sales, but all other prizes were donated by individuals and businesses. The derby proceeds will go toward a large equipment donation for the Diamond Point volunteer fire station. Tatum said more information on this donation will be provided at the annual potluck Appreciation Dinner on March 30 at the Gardiner Community Center. As for Thomas, he plans to use the proceeds from his derby win to replace the four downrigger balls he lost during the salmon derby. The lifelong angler estimates he has participated in 30-40 derbies, and this wasn’t his first win — in 2003, he won the Shaw Island contest.

Anglers auction The North Olympic Peninsula Chapter of the Puget Sound Anglers is holding its annual dinner and auction fundraiser on Friday at SunLand Golf and Country Club in Sequim. The proceeds from this auction provide the majority of funding for the annual Olympic Peninsula Kids Fishing Program held at the Sequim water reclamation pond. They also help fund the club’s annual college scholarship program for a Sequim High School graduate who is or will be pursuing a degree in the natural resources field. TURN



Not the same Morse Outfielder brings more power to 2nd M’s stint BY JOSE M. ROMERO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PEORIA, Ariz. — To be clear, it’s Michael, not Mike Morse. That’s one of the things that has changed since the last time Morse was a member of the Seattle Mariners more than three years ago. And there’s more. His annual income went from the $407,000 he was making when he was traded from the Mariners to the Washington Nationals in June 2009 to the $6.75 million in base salary he’ll make in 2013. Morse is also bigger, some 30 pounds bulkier. He has found a position, corner outfield, after being a utility player in his first go-round with the Mariners. He’s in the starting nine and is expected to be a major key to improving a Mariners offense that struggled with production in 2012. And he’s picked up a nickname, “Beast.” One more thing. “I’ve got long hair,” Morse said. The day Morse arrived for spring training, he looked around and realized he got

there too early for his physical. That gave him time to point out all of the different locker stalls in the clubhouse he used in his nine previous spring trainings with the Mariners. The one he occupies now belonged to ex-Mariner great Ichiro.

Slowed by injuries Morse showed plenty of potential, but injuries and too much depth at various positions kept him from finding a regular place on the major-league roster. There was knee surgery in 2006 and a broken wrist bone in 2007. In 2008, Morse made the opening day roster for the first time after a huge spring training at the plate. But a torn labrum in his left shoulder that required surgery ended his season. He was dealt away for outfielder Ryan Langerhans during the 2009 season. “When I left, I wasn’t really playing,” Morse said. “In Washington, they gave me an opportunity to play every day and let my talent come out.” The trade to Washington was just what Morse needed to boost


Mariners left fielder Michael Morse laughs with teammates during a baseball spring training workout earlier this week in Peoria, Ariz. his career. After moderate success in 98 games in 2010, Morse led the Nats in batting average (.303), home runs (31) and RBIs (95) in 2011, the result of being healthy for an entire season. A strained knee cost him the first couple of months of 2012, but when Morse came back he hit .291 with 18 homers and 62 RBIs in 102 games. He also

added five hits, including a home run, in the NLDS. “It was one of the coolest things I’ve ever been a part of in baseball,” Morse said of the postseason. “Now I got that taste in my mouth and I want to get back.” A three-team trade brought Morse back to the Mariners last month. TURN



Mariners ship Carp to Boston Seattle clearing Spring Training logjam at 1B Carp appeared in 173 games THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Mike Carp, who was traded by Seattle to Boston on Wednesday, is shown following the flight of his solo home run hit off Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie in May 2012.

FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Boston Red Sox acquired Mike Carp from the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday, adding another potentially useful bat to their roster shortly before the start of exhibition games. Seattle designated the 26-year-old Carp for assignment earlier this month, and the Mariners will receive a player to be named or cash from Boston. Carp can play both first base and left field. “It increases the competition,” Boston manager John Farrell said. “We’ve been able to add a talented player to camp here, someone that we’ve had conversations about throughout the course of the offseason. Finally he became available.” Carp was drafted by the Mets in 2004, and he was traded to Seattle in December 2008 in a deal that sent reliever J.J. Putz to New York.

with Seattle from 2009-12 and batted .255 with 28 doubles and 18 homers. In 2011, Carp hit .276 with 12 homers in a career-high 79 games. His average dipped to .213 in 59 games last year. The Mariners have Justin Smoak and Kendrys Morales as their top first basemen. Carp also played some outfield but was deemed expendable with the club in need of pitching. He was designated for assignment Feb. 12 to make room on the 40-man roster for pitcher Joe Saunders. Boston made room for Carp on its 40-man roster by putting outfielder Ryan Kalish on the 60-day disabled list. Kalish is recovering from right shoulder surgery. The Red Sox signed Jonny Gomes to play left field. Fellow newcomer Shane Victorino is expected to be in right, with Jacoby Ellsbury in center. TURN



Armstrong won’t interview with USADA Deadline to testify passed Wednesday BY JIM VERTUNO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

AUSTIN, Texas — Lance Armstrong will not do a tell-all interview under oath with the agency that exposed his performance-enhancing drug use and took his seven Tour de France titles. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency had told Armstrong he would have to reveal all he knows about doping in cycling — a process officials expected would take several days — if he wanted to reduce his lifetime ban from sports. Wednesday was the latest deadline for Armstrong to decide on USADA’s offer. After negotiating with the agency for two months, he refused. Armstrong attorney Tim Herman said the cyclist “will not participate in USADA’s efforts to selectively conduct American prosecutions that only demonize selected individuals while failing to address the

95 percent of the sport over which USADA has no jurisdiction.” USADA chief executive Travis Tygart said the agency had expected Armstrong would agree to talk and would be “moving on” without him. “Over the last few weeks he has led us to believe that he wanted to come in and assist USADA, but was worried of potential criminal and civil liability if he did so,” Tygart said. “Today we learned from the media that Mr. Armstrong is choosing not to come in and be truthful and that he will not take the opportunity to work THE ASSOCIATED PRESS toward righting his wrongs in Lance Armstrong, shown in 2006, has decided not to sport.”

Will help internationally Herman has said Armstrong is willing to participate in an international effort to clean up cycling, an effort that has broken down in spats between the International Cycling Union, the sport’s governing body, and the World Anti-Doping Agency. “He will be the first man through the door, and once inside will answer every ques-

meet with U.S. Anti-Doping Agency officials and talk with them under oath about what he knows about performance-enhancing drug use in cycling. tion, at an international tribunal formed to comprehensively address pro cycling, an almost exclusively European sport,” Herman said. For more than a decade, Armstrong denied using performance-enhancing drugs. But last year, USADA

released a report that detailed extensive doping on his Tour de France-winning teams and stripped him of those victories. Armstrong then admitted last month in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that he doped to win those races. TURN

Answers could have big impact on NFL draft stock BY MICHAEL MAROT THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

INDIANAPOLIS — Barkevious Mingo is ready for questions he will face this weekend in Indianapolis. Seemingly every NFL team at the annual scouting combine will ask about his relationship with former college teammate Tyrann Mathieu and whether he ever hung out with the troubled cornerback. The answers could make as much difference in Mingo living up to his projection as a firstround draft pick as his time in the 40-yard dash. So the LSU star has left nothing to chance, carving out time to prepare for the 15-minute interviews. “It’s one thing that all the guys that came out from LSU are going to face,” Mingo said during a telephone interview. “We know what kind of guy he was and we’re always going to be there for him.” Interview training has become an essential component for draft hopefuls. Most, if not all, of the 333 players expected to arrive in Indy for the combine have been instructed on how to answer coaches and

general managers properly. This year, the questions run the gamut. Running back Marcus Lattimore is trying to prove he can return from a gruesome knee injury. Mathieu, a cornerback, and Da’Rick Rogers, a receiver, both were booted off the teams they intended to play for last fall after failing drug tests. Linebacker Alec Ogletree will have to answer for a series of problems that included a suspension for violating team rules early last season, and linebacker Manti Te’o will likely contend with the girlfriend hoax all over again. And those are just the bigname guys. Lee Gordon, a former television anchor, runs a training program for Athletes Performance, whose client list includes Mingo and Lattimore. His advice: Be appealing, believable and accentuate the positive. “We tell them up front that coaching you on this is similar to tackling techniques and the things you do on the field, but you have to be yourself,” Gordon said. “You can’t be fake or people will see right through it.

“What we do is give them a patiently,” Franklin said. chance to see the media and the “Here, you have to be more [team] interviews as a business aggressive and more hands on opportunity.” and let them know you’re going to be the man.” Advice varies All this coaching has made things infinitely more difficult for Obviously, the advice deviates the teams to sort out. greatly from player to player. Over the years, Bill Polian, the For instance, Gordon suggested Lattimore explain to teams architect of four Super Bowl that he will be ready on opening teams in Buffalo and two in Indiaday, if that’s what he truly napolis, grew so wary of these believes, and to provide support- “coached” answers that he changed the way the Colts did ing medical evidence to prove it.

If the person believed the which he was depicted as a role answers had been programmed, model for inner-city children. Going through this program, the order of the questions changed. Even today, Polian is skeptical though, gave Franklin a different perspective on how to handle that teams will get the answers needed to make the right choices. things in Indy. “I wouldn’t put any stock into “In the mayor’s office, it’s more about helping people and saying the answers they give you.

Sometimes it have to go through it and figure it takes time. So in the mayor’s out for yourself,” he said when office, you have to speak more asked about the responses from

players with drug issues or criminal allegations in their past. He later added: “It’s not like what most people would think of a job interview. Here you have agents and advisers involved, and the agent’s idea is ‘Let me give you as little information as possible about this kid until the draft.’” Breaking down that information is entirely up to the teams, and that’s not the only thing that has changed about the combine. Over the past decade, NFL officials have moved media interviews from hotel hallways to podiums. Hundreds of reporters are now credentialed to cover the event as opposed to the dozens who used to show up 15 years ago, a scene Te’o might have to contend with this weekend for the first time since the hoax story broke. This year, the league will introduce a new measuring tool — the NFL Player Assessment Test, which has been billed as a complement to the Wonderlic intelligence test. Polian described it as more of a personality test than a psychological examination, but acknowledged most teams have been examining the personality traits of draft hopefuls for years.






Trade deadline week used to be the busiest of the NBA season, with team executives making deals at a frenzied pace as buyers tried to load up for a playoff run and sellers tried to unload onerous contracts to give them some flexibility for the next season. Something different appears to be taking place this time around. There’s been plenty of talk, but very little action so far with the deadline looming at noon today. The big moves that were the hallmarks of trade deadlines past could still be coming. But if they don’t, it could be because teams across the league are bracing for a much harsher economic reality starting next season. The “Super Team” era could be over. The new collective bargaining agreement that

was born out of last year’s lockout will impose much stiffer penalties for teams that exceed the salary cap. Teams started bracing for it ever since play resumed on Christmas Day in 2011, and the reckoning is just around the corner. Owners are keeping one eye on the court and the other on their wallets. “Every team is watching what it can do and how it can improve its team in connection with the much higher luxury tax,” Commissioner David Stern said just before last week’s AllStar break. The new CBA may not be responsible just for slowing down the amount of activity around the trade deadline. The total number of players traded in the week leading up to the deadline was 45 in 2010 and 49 in 2011, according to STATS LLC. Last year, that number dipped to 27. Not one player has been

dealt yet this week. When owners and players agreed to a new deal that ended the most recent lockout, the players insisted on not having a hard salary cap — like in the NFL — that teams could not exceed under any circumstance.

Fair for all In the name of leveling the playing field for bigand small-market teams, the owners responded by getting new restrictions put in place to make it as painful as possible for teams who go over the cap to continue doing business that way for any length of time. Under the previous agreement, if a team exceeded the luxury tax level by $4 million, it paid an additional $4 million in tax penalties. If it went over by $14 million, it paid $14 million in penalties. Next season, because of various increases in penalties, that $4 million will cost

a team $6 million. And the team that goes over by $14 million will be hit with a $26.25 million bill. To make matters worse, any team that exceeds the cap “apron” — which is $4 million over the existing luxury tax level — is not allowed to bring in a player in a sign-and-trade deal. That team also will only be able to offer a three-year mid-level exception deal to a free agent rather than the four-year exception that teams under the apron can offer, putting them at a bargaining disadvantage on the open market. And to top it all off, any team that has exceeded the cap in three of the previous four seasons starting in 2014-15 will be subject to “repeater rates,” which increase the penalties even further. “Any well-managed team is going to think about the future consequences of their roster management,”

Stern said.

Impact already seen Many already have been, in markets big and small. The Oklahoma City Thunder traded star guard James Harden to Houston rather than make him the third max-money player on the team and the Memphis Grizzlies dumped leading scorer Rudy Gay and valuable reserve Marreese Speights in separate deals earlier this season to start getting their financial house in order. New Grizzlies owner Robert Pera disputed the notion that sending Gay to Toronto was a salary dump, but also pointed out that teams have to spend their money wisely. “Whether I’m worth a billion dollars or 10 billion dollars, I don’t think throwing money is the way to get a best result,” he said. “You look at the Lakers. They threw together all

these stars and a huge payroll, and it’s not working out so far. “You can’t be cheap, and I don’t think we are cheap.” Before fans in small markets start complaining that the game is still rigged against them, don’t forget that Dallas let Tyson Chandler, the lynchpin of their title team from 2010-11, leave to team up with Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire in New York. Chicago did not match Houston’s offer for up-andcoming center Omer Asik and the Knicks let Jeremy Lin leave for Houston. The Associated Press spoke with three team officials and two agents about the effect the new agreement will have on trades this week, and on roster construction going forward. Several said it could be the end of the teams like the current Miami Heat, where three marquee free agents teamed up to chase titles.

Snow halts opening round at Match Play THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MARANA, Ariz. — The best 64 golfers in the world got together for the first time this season and a snow fight broke out. In the most bizarre episode of a PGA Tour season already filled with wacky weather, the opening round of the Match Play Championship lasted only 3½ hours Wednesday until it was suspended by a winter storm that covered Dove Mountain with nearly 2 inches of snow. Rickie Fowler wasn’t firing at flags. He was slinging snowballs. There was no “snowman” on anyone’s scorecard — golf slang for an 8 — but there was one built on a green at the practice range. “I’ve never actually played golf to the point where we’ve actually stopped for snow, which is kind of crazy,” said Jason Day of Australia, who was 6 up through 10 holes over Zach Johnson. “A little crazy for it to snow in the desert, as well. But that’s just how it is. Mother Nature can do whatever she wants.” Ten matches had not even started when players were called off the course as slush was starting to form on the greens. Two hours later, there was a blanket of snow as temperatures dipped as low as 33 degrees. The rest of the day was called off. “I’ve seen snow on the course when I was a kid, but nothing like that on any of the tours,” said Rory McIlroy, whose match, along with Tiger Woods’, was among those that never got started. Sergio Garcia, in the leadoff match, had just holed a 10-foot par putt to win the 15th hole and go 2 up over Thongchai Jaidee when play was suspended. The opening round was to resume at 8:30 a.m.

Thursday, and the second round would start sometime that afternoon. The 64-man field is cut in half after each round, and with sunshine in the forecast the rest of the week, it should not be difficult to get caught up. So much for a tour that follows the sun. Ian Poulter’s only other tournament this year was on Maui for the Tournament of Champions, where it took four days just to get started because of high wind, and then the 54-hole event was over 29 hours after it started. And now this. “I can’t believe it. When have we ever seen that?” he said, taking off his rain gear in front of his locker. “The two events I’ve attempted to play this year have been three days of 50 mph wind and 2 inches of snow in an hour. It’s absolutely, flippin’ unbelievable.” What does that say for the rest of the year? “Can’t get worse,” he said. “Just incredible. Bizarre. Have you ever seen it? Especially where we are.” Maybe he should consider himself lucky. At least he didn’t play Torrey Pines, where fog wiped out an entire round Saturday and Woods had to wait until Monday afternoon to polish off his 75th career win. There were frost delays in the opening rounds of Phoenix earlier this month. But snow? “I remember one year in Vegas in a collegiate tournament it was sleeting,” said Webb Simpson, who played one shot. “We all charged toboggans to our coach in the pro shop and he wasn’t too happy about it. This is crazy weather. But we’ve got a great forecast for the weekend, so hopefully, it will melt

tonight.” Poulter was cold from the start, rubbing his hands together in the morning chill of high desert — about 2,800 feet above sea level — and he jumped in place to keep warm. He built a 3-up lead over Stephen Gallacher through 12 holes. In only a short amount of time for golf, there was some impressive play considering the conditions. Bo Van Pelt, who took three shots to get out of a bunker early in his match against John Senden, won six straight holes — only two of them with birdies — to build a 5-up lead through 12. Matt Kuchar was 3 up over Hiroyuki Fujita through 14 holes, while defending champion Hunter Mahan was 4 up at the turn over Matteo Manassero. “We knew this was coming, so I think we were all somewhat prepared for the cold and everything,” Mahan said. “We also didn’t think we were actually high enough to get snow, and get this amount. We go sleet and ice, and you can’t putt or hit shots with ice coming at you.” The best competition might have come after play ended. Fowler wound up and fired snowballs from the parking lots. The caddies spent an hour having a snowball fight, though most of the players stayed inside. That included Carl Pettersson, a guy who tries to see the glass half-full. With it being this cold, the Swede said, “This is one time I have the advantage of being fat.” With delays like this, he might have company. “It seems like every rain delay — or snow delay — that we have, you just seem to sit there and eat dessert,” Day said. “And there’s a bunch of yummy chocolates in there.”

Boeing’s new contract splits two union groups Manufacturer also deals with battery woes THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — Boeing Co.’s engineers have accepted a new four-year contract, while technical workers rejected their offer and voted to authorize a future strike. The union representing both groups recommended rejecting the contract because it would not provide pensions to new employees, who’d get a 401(k) retirement plan instead. The union called that unacceptable, but the Chicago-based aerospace company said the change was important to its future. The vote tallied late Tuesday came as the company tries to solve battery problems that have grounded its 787s. The engineers and technical workers in the union work on plans for new planes and solve problems that arise on the factory floor. The two units bargain at the same time, but their contracts are separate and independent, the union noted. While a strike by the technical workers is not imminent, the vote means the negotiating team can call one at any time, said Bill Dugovich, spokesman for the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace. The engineers’ vote means those 15,500 employees have a new contract in place, Dugovich said. Union negotiators hope to resume contract talks soon on behalf of the 7,400 technical workers, he said. Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner said in a statement that the company was pleased with the engineers’ vote but

Inslee states his concern Gov. Jay Inslee said he’s concerned about the split vote and spoke to union and Boeing representatives, urging them to resume negotiations. “We cannot overstate the importance of the aerospace industry to the economy of Washington,� he said. “There are more than 131,000

employees in aerospace-related companies working across the state, the vast majority of which are directly reliant on the Boeing Co.� Union members rejected one contract offer in October. The previous contract expired in November. SPEEA went on strike for 40 days in 2000. Meanwhile, a probe into the overheating of a lithium ion battery in an All Nippon Airways Boeing 787, which Boeing calls the Dreamliner, that made an emergency landing found it was improperly wired, Japan’s Transport Ministry said Wednesday. The report said the battery for the aircraft’s auxiliary power unit was incorrectly connected to the main battery that overheated. Conner is expected to propose a temporary fix in a Friday meeting with Michael Huerta, head of the Federal Aviation Administration.

Office Depot to acquire OfficeMax in stock deal THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Office Depot and OfficeMax are being collated. The retailers said Wednesday they have agreed to combine in an allstock deal that is worth about $1.2 billion. It would transform the office-supply retail sector, helping the No. 2 and No. 3 chains compete against industry behemoth Staples.

The first move toward consolidation in an industry bloated with stores reflects the changing retail landscape as “big box� stores have become outmoded and more people shop online.

Called positive for both Liang Feng, a Morningstar analyst, said the combination would be positive for the companies. But he said it might not

be enough to help the combined company succeed in the changing marketplace. “The industry will face longer-term structural headwinds with competitors like Amazon, Costco gaining ground and the decline in demand for secular office products like paper, pens and ink,� he said. Office Depot Inc. and OfficeMax, along with bigger rival Staples Inc., were all founded in the mid- to late 1980s and pioneered the big-box boom in the ’90s. But the rise in competition from Web retailers and discounters like Costco and Wal-Mart has been tough on the sector.


Office Depot reported the terms of the deal in a release on its website early Wednesday but then removed it, which caused some confusion. The company restored the release after the market opened. Morningstar’s Feng said he doesn’t expect the premature release to damage the companies. “I don’t think it will cause that much of a headache for the companies unless the deal doesn’t go through,� he said. Boca Raton, Fla.-based Office Depot and Naperville, Ill.-based OfficeMax said holders of OfficeMax shares will get 2.69 shares of Office Depot for every OfficeMax share they own. That’s equal to about $13.50 per share, based on Office Depot’s $5.02 per share closing price Tuesday, giving the deal a total value of about $1.2 billion. OfficeMax had about 86.7 million shares outstanding as of Oct. 26, according to SEC filings. It is a 3.8 percent premium to OfficeMax’s closing price of $13 on Tuesday and a 26 percent premium to OfficeMax’s closing price Friday, before word of negotiations leaked out.

Court improves Medicare ‘standard’ Judge tosses unspoken law, calls for rewrite REMEMBER LAST NOVEMBER? Don’t feel bad because I don’t, either. But for the sake of this morning’s missive, harken back and think “Jimmo settlement.” What? Good question, so let me take us down a rabbit trail on the way to an answer. And in order to get there from here, we need to understand a little something about Medicare. Here’s the deal: As way too many of us know, for years, Medicare has had an “improvement standard” that limited our access to Medicare-paid skilled nursing and therapy services (think, among other things, home health). In other words, when you stopped “improving,” services stopped.

HELP LINE So, if I had a condition that Harvey was stable, chronic, not improving or that required such services to just keep things from getting worse (“maintenance only”), I was out of luck. Here are two surprises: ■ A lot of us have conditions like that. ■ Said “improvement standard” isn’t in Medicare law. It was just some standard or whatever that got injected into the mix and became gospel. Thus, those of us who need such services to keep from getting worse should have access to them, right? Right. Now, think about that, then say, “Wow!” The true wonks among us may recall this as the Jimmo settlement.


When last we left Jimmo, it was securely in the hands of federal District Court, awaiting a decision as to why something that was never in the Medicare law got into the Medicare law. Apparently, the District Court judge was not amused and has agreed to get rid of something in Medicare law that was never in Medicare law.

Yes or no? Why do we like that? Well, let’s try a little Q&A: ■ “Skilled services.” Does that mean “only in a nursing home”? No, it could mean at home, outpatient or in a skilled nursing facility. ■ Will this only apply to certain diseases, diagnoses or conditions? No. It applies to any Medicare beneficiary who requires “skilled services” to keep from getting worse. ■ Will this add to the number of days that Medicare will pay for in a nursing facility? Sorry, but no, because the famous “100 days” is specified in

He was born to Charles and Berniece Swegle on Feb. 17, 1933, in Sequim and attended Sequim schools. Mr. Swegle He was in the Army and just missed the Korean War. Mr. Swegle married Billie Hugh Hutto on Feb. 15, 1957. They lived in Port Angeles and moved to a Joyce farm in 1970.

The couple raised three children, Melene (born 1957), James (1959) and Marion (1961). Mr. Swegle worked for years at Fibreboard and Peninsula Plywood, retiring at 62. He also has volunteered for the Joyce Fire Department and spends as many hours as he can fishing with son James. The Swegles have six grandchildren, with one grandson graduating from medical school this spring. They also have six great-grandchildren, with a seventh due soon.

Medicare law, but it does change how you might qualify for same. ■ Won’t this just cost Medicare more and make this whole “health care thing” worse? Well, we shall see, but a study was done through the Veterans Administration model where people had access to services like this, and it appeared it actually cost less because hospitalizations and nursing home costs went down. Why? Because if we have access to what we need, we tend not to get worse and cost more, which seems to border on “intuitive.” So, the judge has approved the settlement and has ordered the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to revise its “Medicare Benefit Policy Manual,” along with other nonexistent policies, guidelines and instructions, and to develop and implement a nationwide education campaign to inform us all of what is now true. I have no idea how long that will take, but here’s something I do know: These “new” standards apply now — right now. Today. In fairness, it is entirely possi-

ble that local health care providers may a) not know this and/or b) be more than a little gun-shy of doing anything Medicare-related that isn’t clearly specified. But if you or somebody you like is being denied Medicare coverage based on the now-nonexistent “improvement standard,” you can visit and get some good info on how to fight back, remembering that health care providers aren’t the “enemy.” I’m not trying to pretend that this will be easy because I have yet to encounter anything in health care or health insurance that is “easy,” but this is your life, and you have a right to it. In my world, not getting worse is getting better.

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 43-year-old single mom with three young boys. I also am a veteran and getting ready to go back to school. I have been dating a gentleman for two months now, and we get along great. He’s three years older than I am and good with my kids and family. I like him a lot, and we seem to have a lot in common — more than most. I really want him to kiss me, but I don’t want to seem pushy. He’s a real gentleman. We have gone from hugs to holding hands while sitting on the couch watching television. I don’t mind taking things slow, but . . . How do I find out if he wants to kiss me or not? Sometimes, it seems like it, but then he seems afraid to. How do I let him know it’s OK? Sorry I seem like a teenager. Confused in Idaho

Dear Furious: When your “friend” returns from her sea cruise, see if you can get her to agree to a repayment plan for the sake of your mental — and financial — health. However, if she refuses, you may have to write off the loan as tuition in the school of experience. Your mistake was not getting the terms of the loan in writing.

Dear Abby: You have written about children in grocery stores before. Would you please address the risk to children by allowing them to stand in grocery shopping carts? I see it all too often, and I don’t think the parents/grandparents realize that if the child falls out and lands on his or her head, neck or back, the child could end up paralyzed or dead. The adult must be the rule setter and protect the child. But too often, it’s the child setting the limits, and the results can be tragic. Concerned Shopper in New York

this problem. That way, any liability that might stem from a child falling would lie directly where it belongs: with the adult who should have been using common sense.

Dear Abby: My oldest friend owes me a lot of money. I loaned it to her when she was being evicted. She has now come into some money and is going on a cruise. I asked her to repay me before the trip. She said she “needs the cruise for her mental health.” I am shocked and very angry. When I lost my temper and told her off, she accused me of being “greedy and money-obsessed.” Abby, I helped her when she needed it. What should I do? Furious in San Francisco

Dear Confused: This man isn’t taking things slow. Glaciers have been known to move faster. Two months is a very long time to wait for a first kiss. The next time you find yourself sitting on the couch and holding hands with him, you have my permission to turn to him and say, “I’d love it if you kissed me.” If that doesn’t do the trick, then face it: His feelings for you are only brotherly.

New-car noise irritates buyer Dear Doctor: I just bought a 2013 Nissan Altima 2.5SL. I’m pleased with the car except for a noise issue. On this model, Nissan has equipped it with an electric-powered steering pump, and it produces a very loud noise that I can mask by turning up the radio volume. The dealer informs me this is a normal noise and is not a safety issue. Are you aware of this issue? Doug Dear Doug: The 2013 Altima I test-drove had no unusual noises. Every car I’ve driven with electric-powered steering does emit some noise, some louder than others. As the dealer said, this is not a safety or defect.

Sluggish shifting

Radiator replacement

Dear Doctor: I have a 2012 Chevy Equinox with 10,000 miles. It’s a four-cylinder, and I drive with the Eco button on. I feel a sluggish shifting when it slows down or when going downhill. You’ve mentioned in past articles about reprogramming the transmission on your 2010 Chevy truck. Where do I find out more? Mike Dear Mike: Before you buy a reprogrammer, you need to know that GM designed the six-speed automatic transmission to downshift when slowing down. This is to keep the emissions as low as possible and engine speed at the best rpm. You can go online to Summit Racing and find power programmers or contact the company to inquire about your particular transmission shifting concerns.

Dear Doctor: I own a 2004 Chevy TrailBlazer. In 2009, I had a radiator leak, and I had my trusted mechanic make the repair. One year later, the radiator leaked again and was replaced.
