â€˜A lot of issuesâ€™ with new PT budget Council OKs city spending plan of $28.9 million for 2012 BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” The City Council has unanimously approved a $28,952,606 budget for 2012 that includes a projected $644,000 in revenue from a levy lid lift voters approved by only
eight votes. The council and staff acknowledged Monday that the cityâ€™s financial management is a work in progress. â€œThere are still a lot of issues we need to resolve with the budget,â€? said City Manager David Timmons at Mondayâ€™s meeting.
â€œI suggest we pass it and use it as a framework to the amount and then resolve those issues through individual resolutions throughout the year.â€? Issues that will require further discussion include the maintenance and repair of the Mountain View swimming pool, maintenance of the equipment rental fund and whether the city should budget for sewer and maintenance repairs or if it should deal with them as they occur. The levy lid lift that was
approved in November for support of fire and emergency services in Port Townsend passed by 2,098 votes, or 50.10 percent approving it, to 2,090 votes, or 49.90 percent rejecting it.
â€˜More user-friendlyâ€™ Timmons suggested several measures to make the budget process â€œmore user-friendly.â€? He recommended producing an â€œexecutive summaryâ€? of the budget that explains the expendi-
tures in simple language for the public. The summary, characterized by Timmons as â€œa pared-down Readerâ€™s Digest version,â€? would be made available on the cityâ€™s website, www.cityofpt.us. It was decided that he would prepare it and offer it to the council at next Mondayâ€™s meeting. Deputy Mayor George Randels said the user-friendly idea could be expanded to include all budget documents. TURN

Gregoire wants to expand report cards on educators BY RACHEL LA CORTE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA â€” Gov. Chris Gregoire on Tuesday proposed changing the way Washington teachers and principals are evaluated, providing them with more feedback and potentially expanding the field of educators at risk of being fired for poor performance. Gregoire said the evaluation system would replace one in which teachers and principals are now rated as either satisfactory or unsatisfactory with one that would have four categories: unsatisfactory, basic, proficient and distinguished. Her plan builds upon a fourtier evaluation process that has already been tested as a pilot program in several school districts across the state under a law passed in 2010. While all school districts would

Under Gregoireâ€™s proposal, that will remain, but teachers who receive a basic rating for two consecutive years would also enter probation and have to raise their evaluations. â€œWe need to address this concern out there that we have bad teachers,â€? Gregoire said. â€œFor the most part, we have very, very good teachers. We want to make sure the public feels confident that we have everybody at the proficiency-or-above level.â€?

Uninsured up in state, down on Peninsula THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AND PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
OLYMPIA â€” Bad statewide news is a little better on the North Olympic Peninsula. One million residents in the state donâ€™t have health insurance, and unpaid costs have risen to $1 billion a year, insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler said Tuesday. The number of uninsured grew by at least 180,000 between 2008 and 2010, and 31 of the stateâ€™s 39 counties saw an increase in the number of uninsured, according to a report issued by Kreidlerâ€™s office. Kreidler said 14.5 percent of the stateâ€™s more than 6.7 million people are without health insurance. That percentage jumps to 20 percent or higher in five counties: Adams, Franklin, Grant, Okanogan and Yakima.

‘Survivor’ star released from prison REALITY TELEVISION STAR Richard Hatch has been released from a Rhode Island prison after serving a nine-month sentence for failing to pay back taxes. Hatch, the winner of the first season of the CBS reality show “Survivor,” was released Monday, a Hatch state prison official said. Hatch, 50, served six weeks at a state minimumsecurity facility as a transition after spending most of his sentence in federal prison. The Newport, R.I., resident had spent more than three years in prison for not paying taxes on his $1 million “Survivor” winnings. He was released in 2009 and ordered to refile his 2000 and 2001 taxes and pay what he owed. He went back to prison in March for violating the
terms of his supervised release by failing to settle his tax bill. He had claimed he was “financially destitute.” Hatch said Monday night he was “happy” to have been released but didn’t know where he would be staying. He maintained he’s innocent of failing to pay his taxes.
Streep in Vogue Meryl Streep may be one of the finest actresses around, yet she said she believed her career was over 20 years ago. The 62-year-old told Vogue magazine she was offered three different roles to play a witch after Streep turning 40. She believed it meant women in her age group were “grotesque on some level” and told her husband, “It’s over.” Streep played the editor of the fictional Vogue-like magazine Runway in the movie “The Devil Wears Prada.” She is now gracing the January cover of the real magazine for the first time, joking that she’s the oldest
person to do so. Next, she plays former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the film “Iron Lady,” which opens Jan. 13. The January issue of Vogue goes on sale Tuesday.

In second place were Californians Jeremy Cline and Sandy Draghi. In third place were former NFL player Marcus Pollard and his wife, Amani, from Pine Mountain, Ga. During this last leg of the round-the-world race, the couples were required to land a jetliner in a flight simulator, find Gone With the Wind author Margaret Mitchell’s home and plot their 40,000-mile odyssey on a giant world map erected high above the parking lot at Turner Field.

JOHN FOLEY, 76, a Cardinal who for 25 years was the voice for American viewers of the Vatican’s Christmas Midnight Mass and who led an ancient Catholic order in the Holy Land, died Sunday. Cardinal Foley died at the Villa St. Joseph in suburban Darby, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia said. Cardinal The cause of Foley death was not given. In 1984, Cardinal Foley was appointed to lead the Pontifical Council of Social Communications, which spearheaded Vatican initiatives under the media-savvy Pope John Paul II to get out the church’s message through the media.

earth, straightforward manner of engaging with the public was a refreshing departure. Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi described Cardinal Foley as being a man “truly of great spiritual level.” “He incarnated, in the best way, the friendly, open, attentive relationship, of the church in the world of social communications, not so much as an ‘impersonal’ world, but as a world of persons,” Lombardi told Vatican Radio. In 2007, Pope Benedict XVI named Cardinal Foley
the Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. The order supports schools, health institutions and serves basic needs for the poorest people of all faiths in the region. “I was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Cardinal John Foley,” said Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput. “Cardinal Foley was a man of great apostolic energy. Anyone who met him was immediately aware of his intense love for the church and his zeal for communicating the Gospel.”

Briefly: World Grenades, rifle used to kill 4 in Belgian city LIEGE, Belgium — A man armed with grenades and an assault rifle attacked holiday shoppers Tuesday at a central square in the Belgian city of Liege. Four people died, including the attacker, and 123 others were wounded, officials said. It was not immediately clear what motivated the attack in the busy Place Saint-Lambert square, the central entry point to downtown shopping streets in the city in eastern Belgium. The attack prompted hundreds of shoppers to stampede down old city streets, fleeing explosions and bullets. Belgian officials identified the attacker as Norodine Amrani, 33, a Liege resident who they said had done jail time for offenses involving guns, drugs and sexual abuse. He was among the dead, but Liege Prosecutor Danielle Reynders told reporters it was unclear if he committed suicide. He did not die at the hands of police, she said.
Settlers target troops JERUSALEM — Dozens of Jewish settlers broke into an army base in the West Bank early Tuesday and lit fires, damaged vehicles and threw stones at a senior officer, just hours after another group took over an abandoned building in a closed
military zone on the border with Jordan. The incidents were an ominous sign of the growing audacity of Jewish extremists, who increasingly have been venting their anger against the very troops assigned to guard them. The Israeli news site Ynet said the settlers were protesting the planned evacuations of unauthorized settlement outposts. In recent years, some Israeli settlers have vandalized military or Palestinian property to protest Israeli government action against settlements, a tactic they term “price tag.”
Bus accident deadly BEIJING — A school bus taking primary students home slipped off a country road into an irrigation ditch in eastern China, killing 15 children and highlighting continuing safety problems in the country’s school transport system following a similar tragedy last month.

The official Xinhua News Agency said Tuesday the bus was carrying 29 students. The accident occurred Monday evening as the bus was traveling along a rural highway outside the city of Xuzhou in the province’s north. News reports said it careened off the road after swerving to avoid a pedicab. The Associated Press
GENEVA — Physicists are closing in on an elusive subatomic particle that, if found, would confirm a long-held understanding about why matter has mass and how the universe’s fundamental building blocks behave. Few people outside physics can fully comprehend the search for the Higgs boson, which was first hypothesized 40 years ago. But proving that the “God particle” actually exists would be “a vindication of the equations we’ve been using all these years,” said Frank Wilczek, a Nobel laureate and physics professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Scientists announced Tuesday that they had found hints but no definitive proof of the particle that is believed to be a basic component of the universe.
They hope to determine whether it exists by next year. It’s hard to find, not because it is especially tiny, but because it is hard to create, said physicist Howard Gordon of the Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York. He works with the ATLAS experiment, one of two independent teams looking for the Higgs boson at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research near Geneva. CERN runs the Large Hadron Collider under the Swiss-French border, a 17-mile tunnel where high-energy beams of protons are sent crashing into each other at incredible speeds. A fraction of those collisions could produce the Higgs particle, assuming it exists. Researchers said Tuesday that
they had defined a range of likely masses for the Higgs. CERN’s director-general, Rolf Heuer, said “the window for the Higgs mass gets smaller and smaller” as scientists learn more. “But be careful — it’s intriguing hints,” he said. “We have not found it yet. We have not excluded it yet.” Tuesday’s revelations were highly anticipated by thousands of researchers, but the ideas behind the Higgs boson date back to the 1960s. British physicist Peter Higgs and others theorized its existence to explain why the fundamental particles in matter have mass. Those particles, such as electrons, are the building blocks of the universe. Mass is a trait that combines with gravity to give an object weight.
NTSB points to deadly pileup to deny all cell use by drivers THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — States should ban all driver use of cellphones and other portable electronic devices, except in emergencies, the National Transportation Board said Tuesday. The recommendation, unanimously agreed to by the fivemember board, applies to both hands-free and hand-held phones and significantly exceeds any existing state laws restricting texting and cellphone use behind the wheel. The board made the recommendation in connection with a deadly highway pileup in Missouri last year.
The board said the initial collision in the accident near Gray Summit, Mo., was caused by the inattention of a 19-year-oldpickup driver who sent or received 11 texts in the 11 minutes immediately before the crash. The pickup, traveling at 55 mph, collided into the back of a tractor truck that had slowed for highway construction. The pickup was rear-ended by a school bus that overrode the smaller vehicle. A second school bus rammed into the back of the first bus. The pickup driver and a 15-year-old student on one of the school buses were killed. Thirty-eight other people were
injured in the Aug. 5, 2010, accident near Gray Summit, Mo. About 50 students, mostly members of a high school band from St. James, Mo., were on the buses heading to the Six Flags St. Louis amusement park. The accident is a “big red flag for all drivers,” NTSB Chairman Deborah Hersman said at a meeting to determine the cause of the accident and make safety recommendations. It’s not possible to know from cellphone records if the driver was typing, reaching for the phone or reading a text at the time of the crash, but it’s clear he was manually, cognitively and visually distracted, she said.

The U.S. Embassy in Mauritius said the unmanned U.S. Air Force MQ-9 Reaper was not armed and that the crash caused no injuries. The crash sparked a fire that was quickly extinguished. Lina Laurence of Seychelles’ civilian aviation authority said the drone developed engine problems minutes into its flight and needed to land as soon as possible Tuesday morning.
PeninsulaNorthwest Briefly: State Evaluations
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2011 — (J)
to improve instruction CONTINUED FROM A1 “We think when it’s fully implemented it’s going to make a significant difference to the students in our classrooms,” she said. “The purpose of the evaluation system is to improve instruction. That’s the focus of our evaluation system.”
Budget cuts Lindquist said the greater concern is further budget cuts to education. “The biggest problem facing us is not tinkering with the evaluation system. The biggest problem is we don’t have adequate funding for our schools,” she said. Lawmakers are working to fix a $1.4 billion shortfall to the state budget. Gregoire has proposed getting there through a combination of cuts, fund transfers and delayed payments. The cuts would include cuts to education, including shortening the school year by four days. She has separately proposed that voters approve a temporary increase in the sales tax to offset some of the cuts.
When asked if she needed to present reform to get major business groups — like Microsoft and Boeing — on board with a sales tax increase, Gregoire said it was not a “quid pro quo.” “These two employers desperately need a skilled workforce,” she said. “They’ve made that very clear to me.” Gregoire added the big businesses don’t want to see dramatic cuts to K-12 or higher education. “So don’t be thinking there’s some quid pro quo here,” she said. “There’s a common interest. We cannot shred our education system. We’re going to have to invest new revenue, and yes, we must continually be reforming and doing a better job with our K-12 system.”
Corporate praise Boeing and Microsoft both issued statements Tuesday praising Gregoire’s efforts on education reform. Microsoft General Counsel and Executive Vice President Brad Smith wrote he was “encouraged by Governor Gregoire’s willingness to propose necessary
improvements to our education system, and we view her proposals today as a positive step in the right direction.” “In spite of a significant budget shortfall, we are confident that continuing this vital dialogue can yield sustainable funding for education; lasting, performance-based reforms; and access to educational opportunities for all students,” wrote Boeing spokeswoman Susan Bradley. Also Tuesday, Gregoire proposed creating opportunities for struggling schools to partner with universities and to create a new office called the Office of Student Achievement that will focus on educational attainment for students from high school until graduate school. Gregoire also wants opportunities for struggling schools to partner with universities and to create a new office called the Office of Student Achievement that will focus on educational attainment for students from high school until graduate school.

Federal biologists determined he wasn’t fit to be returned to the wild because of his small size and lack of survival skills. Aquarium officials said his remains will be sent for study to the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture in Seattle and to a researcher in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He is survived by an 11-year-old pup, Isaac, who is on loan at Boston’s New England Aquarium.
Blue whales SEATTLE — Scientists said they have spotted a record number of endangered blue whales off the state’s coast. John Calambokidis of Olympia-based Cascadia Research was in one of two research vessels that spotted the creatures about 25 miles from Westport.

members of the council. “If we have all the members of the council assembled as a whole all the members will become more familiar with city budget and finances,” Timmons said. “It could be a council work session in a roundtable format, which would make it easier to reconcile budget priorities.” The expanded budget committee could meet on a
quarterly basis, Timmons said. City Council Member Catharine Robinson liked the idea, saying that it would help the entire council focus on the budget for the entire year “rather than just waiting until November.” Mayor Michelle Sandoval and City Councilmen Mark Welch and David King comprise the current budget committee.
Sandoval said she did not favor increasing the size of the committee permanently. While expressing optimism about the city’s continued financial health, Timmons cautioned against “false positive” indicators that make it appear that the economy is turning around but is then contradicted by negative news. “We’ve turned the corner,” Timmons said.
“We’ve made some tough decisions, and the staff has made some personal and professional sacrifices to get to where we are. “For that, we owe a debt of gratitude to everyone who is working for the city.”

A change in early 2010 through federal health care reform allows children up to age 26 to remain covered by their parents’ insurance policies. The report found that about half of those without health insurance are employed and that the most likely to be uninsured are

2008 to 2010, according to the report. For instance, uncompensated care at Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles cost the hospital $9.6 million this year and is projected to rise to $11.1 million in 2012. Kreidler said those costs ultimately get passed on to those who are paying health care premiums.
72 percent Also, charges presented to Medicaid and Medicare represent 72 percent of OMC’s gross revenue, Chief Executive Officer Eric Lewis has said. Since Medicare and Medicaid pay less than the hospital charges, OMC doesn’t necessarily net its gross revenue, he has said. Kreidler also noted that the state numbers don’t include people who are insured but still struggle with high medical expenses. “There are so many other people out there who, technically, have health insurance, but it’s inadequate,” he said. “They’re only one step away from bankruptcy.” Kreidler said that if the major provisions of the fed-
eral health care reform are able to take effect in 2014, more than 800,000 uninsured people in the state will be eligible for expanded Medicaid eligibility or subsidies, and the rate of uninsured would drop to 5 percent. The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments challenging the constitutionality of the historic health care overhaul — also known as the Affordable Care Act — next year. Kreidler said he’s worried about what could happen if the court overturns the reform. “Given the political atmosphere we face in the nation’s capital, I don’t know how they can work on a compromise that is going to effectively deal with the crisis we’re facing in health care right now. I’m very apprehensive,” he said. The report comes after Gov. Chris Gregoire proposed last month that Basic Health, which provides medical services for the poor, be cut. She has proposed $2 billion in statewide cuts to balance the budget, and the state Legislature is in special session now considering what to do.

Spinks not selected as Miss. police chief BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Former Sequim Police Chief Bob Spinks lost out Monday to a finalist from within the Columbus, Miss., Police Department for that cityâ€™s police chief position. The Dispatch newspaper in Columbus reported Monday afternoon that the Columbus City Council selected Columbus Police Lt. Selvain McQueen as the new chief over Spinks and one other out-of-town candidate. â€œThe votes went along racial lines,â€? The Dispatch said. Black council members supported McQueen, who is black, the newspaper said, while the two white council
members v o t e d against the motion. Those two later said they had favored Spinks, The Spinks Dispatch said.
â€œI enjoyed my dealings with the city, had a great trip back to Mississippi and if you read the evaluations of my interview process, I received very good reviews by the local newspaper.â€? Spinks wished McQueen â€œthe very best.â€? â€œWhen you get down to your top two or three candidates, especially when itâ€™s a Not surprised council decision, there are a lot of variables involved, Spinks, in a statement and some donâ€™t merely rest released Tuesday, said he on qualifications,â€?

Wave Cable gets Briefly . . . Sequim franchise Untreated sewage spills BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
the past couple of weeks in the form of cards, emails, calls and passing conversations around town when this process made its way into the news.â€? He reiterated what he has said in the past: â€œLeaving Sequim is still not my first choice. â€œMy wife has a career in juvenile justice, Iâ€™m teaching university criminal justice classes part time, and of course my other involvements on the board of directors at the Sequim Senior Activity Center and OlyCAP, plus my involvement on the management team at KSQM-91.5 FM, are all important, time-consuming and rewarding involvements.â€?
Spinks and two other candidates were interviewed last Thursday in Columbus, a City Council interview process that included broadcasting it live. Besides McQueen and Spinks, the third choice was Curtis Brame of North Chicago, Ill. McQueen has been the interim police chief since the council fired Joseph St. John in July and has served in the Columbus Police Department for almost 24 years. McQueen was former head of the Police Departmentâ€™s criminal investigations division. City Manager Steve Burkett last year asked
Spinks to resign, and Spinks did so, after Burkett concluded they lacked managerial chemistry. Spinks, 52, who headed the Sequim force for five years, acted as city manager before Burkett joined the city of Sequim in early 2010. Spinks has about 30 years of experience in public service. Prior to Sequim, he served as police chief in Milton-Freewater, Ore., from 1997-2001 and as an undersheriff in Benton County, Ore.

SEQUIM â€” Wave Cable TV will assist the city in broadcasting City Council and other city-related meetings and events next year under its new franchise agreement. The council approved a Wave franchise agreement with the city 5-0 Monday night, with Mayor Ken Hays and Councilman Bill Huizinga absent. Councilman Ted Miller voiced support for cable broadcasts of city happenings, saying he has campaigned for it. â€œIâ€™m a big champion of it, and I hope we can move forward full speed ahead,â€? Miller said. City Attorney Craig Ritchie said the new franchise agreement with the city, which replaces the existing 20-year deal struck in 1992 with Waveâ€™s predecessor, Northland Cable, sets the franchise fee at 5 percent of the cable TV companyâ€™s revenues in the city of Sequim.

Panelists take out of appeals process Steering panel to mull Clallam commissioners vote 2-1 to route review to Superior Court BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Clallam County commissioners have removed themselves from the appeals process for landuse permit applications. The three commissioners voted 2-1 Tuesday to approve policy amendments and an ordinance amending county code that effectively remove the board from the appeals process. Occasionally, the commissioners consider landuse appeals in a quasi-judicial capacity after the hearing examiner makes a ruling.
Then an appeal Commissioner rulings could then be appealed to Clallam County Superior Court. In the future, applicants will appeal unfavorable hearing examiner decisions directly to Superior Court. â€œWe feel this is in the best interest of the county organization,â€? said Mark Nichols, Clallam County chief deputy prosecuting attorney. Nichols said the commis-
sioners will be able to focus more time and effort on their constituents and â€œallow the legal technicalities and issues to be dealt with by lawyers.â€? No one offered testimony at a public hearing on the proposal Tuesday morning. Commissioners Mike Chapman and Steve Tharinger voted yes. Commissioner Mike Doherty voted no. â€œThe representation value of a county commissioner has lots of facets, including â€˜I think this level of appeal in land use matters,â€™â€? Doherty said. â€œSecond, it will probably add costs to developers and citizens to go straight to Superior Court and bypass the Board of Commissioners.â€?
Delays in appeals
hearings, in my view, have become very judicial, very legalistic,â€? said Tharinger, who is also a state representative for the 24th District, which covers the North Olympic Peninsula as well as part of Grays Harbor County. â€œUsually, these cases end up going to Superior Court anyway,â€? he said. â€œAnd thereâ€™s a considerable amount of staff time and energy â€” and our time â€” to study the issues, and yet theyâ€™re not resolved at our level.â€?
Limited information Tharinger, who is wrapping up his third and final term as a county commissioner this month, added that the closed record appeals that commissioners vote on are limited to information gathered by the hearing examiner. â€œIt really limits our ability to be a good elected official and exchange ideas and concerns with the citizens we represent,â€? Tharinger said. â€œI think itâ€™s just a process that has run its course.â€?

eco-projects OLYMPIA â€” The Washington Coastal Protection Fund steering committee will discuss funding environmental projects in south Puget Sound and Hood Canal when it meets today. The special meeting will begin at 10:30 a.m. in the state Department of Ecology headquarters building, 300 Desmond Drive S.E., Lacey. The state steering committee is responsible for disbursing the money from the state Coastal Protection Fund. The fund is made up of monetary damages deposited into it by individuals and companies who spilled oil into state waters. The compensation paid into the fund is for damages to natural resources. It is separate from penalties for oil spills and reimbursing the state for its response and cleanup costs. The Coastal Protection Fund is primarily used to fund habitat restoration and enhancement activities in areas affected by oil spills. Since 1997, the committee has funded $5.3 million for more than 80 different restoration projects across Washington. The committee includes representatives from the state departments of Ecol-

SEQUIM â€” The Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave., will continue its monthly â€œCelebrate Authorshipâ€? series with writer and editor Diana Somerville at 1 p.m. Saturday. Somerville, whose column â€œGreening the Commonsâ€? appears in the Sequim Gazette, will present a â€œround tableâ€? to explore innovative ways writers can connect with readers. â€œTime was when selfpublishing had the same stigma as using a â€˜Vanity Pressâ€™ â€” paying a company to print your personal puffery with a handsome cover,â€? said Somerville. â€œBut new print-ondemand technology, online publishing and the Internet have transformed the publishing industry.â€? She has worked with traditional publishers as well as the new modalities. Somerville encourages the open-minded approach. â€œWorking with experienced writers as well as enthusiastic beginners has taught me that there are as many ways to begin as there are creative people,â€? she said. â€œNot every publication begins with a manuscript,â€? she said. â€œYou might begin with an

Equine center a boon for all youths SHE’S A FRIEND in need who’s spent countless hours helping community youths have a better life through the use of her ponies, and now she could use our help in feeding those ponies and keeping her program afloat. I’m in awe of how giving Yvette TwoRabbits Ludwar, founder of the Native Horsemanship Riding Center, is to our youths, especially to those with special needs. To my knowledge, the center is the only facility in the area offering lessons to youths with physical disabilities, such as cerebral palsy and autism, as well at-risk youths and ablebodied ones ages 3 and older.
Needs help The nonprofit center could use our help staying afloat. “We would like to encourage folks to remember Native Horsemanship when considering gift-giving,” said NHRC member Sharon Hogue. “Our treasury is running seriously low; we have just about enough cash on hand to get us through the month of December and no further. We need help in buying hay and grain for the ponies.” She, along with the other 25-plus members, are asking folks to think about donating one bale of hay or more to the ponies that toil all year long, giving their “brand of love to the children we support with therapeutic riding.”

And Chimacum’s alumni band plays on THEY ARRIVE AT the Chimacum fire hall Tuesday evenings during December. Shedding coats, hats and gloves, they unpack their instruments — trumpets, trombones, clarinets and flutes — and proceed, literally, to warm up. It’s rehearsal night for members of the Chimacum High School Alumni Band. Their upcoming performance: an annual singalong concert at Ferino’s Pizzeria in Port Hadlock. The concert is free, but donations are accepted for the Duane Montgomery Music Scholarship. How many members of the alumni band learned to play a musical instrument from Montgomery? “All of us,” said Becky Lopeman Fernandes, class of ’72. Fernandes plays the flute in the band, which was started by Montgomery and reorganized after his death two years ago by Mary Lou Montgomery, a music teacher and choral director who also taught at Chimacum Schools. Members of the alumni band trace their knowledge of music to Duane and Mary Lou. “She taught us how to read music,” Fernandes said. “When we got old enough, we went right into band with Mr. Montgomery.” But when her husband was hired to teach at Chimacum Schools in 1954, there was no band program at the high school, Mary Lou said. So to fill out the ranks, he recruited students from the grade school and middle school for parade appearances. Marching in the Seattle Christmas Parade was a priority, Mary Lou said, because some of the Chimacum students had never been to the city. But the players’ stature, or lack of it, caused comment. “People would say, ‘Are

Her sister-in-law, Bonnie Michaelson Walters, ’69, and Bonnie’s sister, Patty Beckman, ’77, are both clarinetists in the band. Another returnee is Diane Johnson, who started grade school the year after Mr. Montgomery was hired to teach at Chimacum. Johnson, who learned to play drums in fifth grade, now plays bass and will join Glen Huntingford, who also plays guitar, for a sing-

For the past three years, a $1,000 scholarship in his name has been awarded to a Chimacum graduate who plans to study music in college, either performance or education. On Sunday, Duane Montgomery’s legacy continues through the music of the students he taught.
“He was a tremendous influence in my life,” Walters said. The Chimacum Alumni Band will play traditional Christmas carols and songs Sunday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Ferino’s Pizzeria, 846 Ness’ Corner Road, Port Hadlock. Donations to the Duane Montgomery Music Scholarship will be accepted. Checks marked for the scholarship fund can be sent to P.O. Box 208, Port Hadlock, WA 98339.

Occupy rally becomes melee at Seattle port PENINSULA DAILY NEWS NEWS SOURCES
SEATTLE — A crowd of 500 people peacefully blocked a Port of Seattle entrance late Monday before violence broke out nearby during an “Occupy the Ports” day up and down the West Coast. Demonstrations in the Northwest spanned from Vancouver, B.C., to Oregon and included the Ports of Bellingham, Tacoma and Longview. The Seattle group marched from Westlake Park to lower Spokane Street, blocking truck access to the Terminal 18
south gate and for a time traffic in both directions. Three people were arrested after defying police, who advanced with bicycles upraised to clear a lane. Then a larger melee happened just before 5 p.m. on Klickitat Avenue Southwest, a route to port facilities, a shipyard and a petroleum tank depot on Harbor Island. Some in the crowd used wood or metal scraps they had stacked as a barricade, and then someone tossed a flare toward officers. Another protester tried to cover a police horse’s face
with a protest banner, The Seattle Times reported. One officer was hit in the face with a bag of paint, police said. Police used pepper spray on some groups and tossed out two concussion devices that let out a cloud of acrid brown smoke. Eleven protesters were arrested and processed at a van parked nearby. Demonstrators caused limited delays to waterfront trucking in Portland, Ore., and Oakland, Calif. In Long Beach, Calif., there was a huge police presence and at least one arrest.
Investigation continues into Army copters crash BY MIKE BAKER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
RAINIER — The Army has removed the bodies of the four aviators killed in the crash of two helicopters during training at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, as the investigation continues into whether the aircraft collided or went down separately. The two-seat reconnaissance choppers crashed after 8 p.m. Monday in the southwest training area of the sprawling base, according to the Army. Chief Warrant Officer 5 James Oliphant, an aviation safety officer at the base, said the airmen were on a training flight, but he did not know specifically what they were doing before the crash. “The actual events are unknown at his point,”

Clallam inks Application made for agreement New Peking demolition for trailhead Septic Horseman group to build facility for Adventure Route BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — A local horseback club is teaming up with Clallam County to build a new trailhead for the Adventure Route of the Olympic Discovery Trail west of Port Angeles. County commissioners Tuesday approved a memorandum of understanding with the Peninsula Chapter of the Back Country Horsemen of Washington to build the facility on a county-leased Department of Natural Resources easement under the Bonneville Power Administration power lines off Dan Kelly Road, about a third of a mile from the trail.
20 miles of wilderness The Adventure Route is a 20-mile wilderness variation to the paved Olympic Discovery Trail that traverses the undulating hills between the Elwha River valley and the Lake Crescent basin. It is popular with hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders. Clallam County Transportation Program Manager Rich James said the county has worked with Back Country Horsemen in the past.
A ‘major maintainer’
Back Country Horsemen has adopted several segments of the Adventure Route for regular maintenance, he said. The trail was constructed over several years by Clallam County Chain Gangs, the inmate work crews led by Jon Beltrami and other Corrections officers, and teams of volunteers.’
Gate at trailhead The county will use a portion of its nonmotorized road funds to build and install a gate at the trailhead. The county will also install a fence and deliver gravel to the site.

removal needed BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — The wreckage of the landmark New Peking restaurant is one step closer to being removed, five months after burning to the ground. A contractor hired by the owners of the property applied for a demolition permit last week, said Sheila Roark Miller, director of the Clallam County Department of Community Development. The building has passed Olympic Region Clean Air Agency, or ORCAA, inspections for asbestos removal but still needs another state permit before demolition can begin, Miller said. Before the county can issue the permit, which was applied for last Wednesday, and the bulldozers can get to work, the owners of the property at the 2416 E. U.S. Highway 101 must first get a state Department of Ecology permit to remove a septic system on the site, Miller said.
Calls unanswered Owner Kevin Fong did not return several calls requesting comment about when demolition will occur or if the family plans to rebuild the pool hall. The New Peking, known for the Chinese dragon murals on brick-red walls, burned to the ground July 5. An attic electrical fire

Complaints Miller and DCD staff have fielded about a dozen citizen complaints about the building’s condition and concerns about rancid food odors emanating from the structure, Miller said. “I’d say that’s a pretty high number of complaints, probably mostly due to its visibility,” she said. The 7,800-square-foot New Peking is about a mile east of the city limit and is passed by thousands of motorists a day traveling the main four-lane thoroughfare in and out of Port Angeles. Concerns over the building’s impact on Port Angeles’ image also were

expressed before Sept. 17, when dignitaries arrived in Port Angeles for ceremonies surrounding the removal of the Elwha River dams, Miller said. The DCD, which posted a no-occupancy notice on the structure within days after the fire due to unsafe conditions and “looting and trespassing that is occurring,” also sent Fong the notice by certified letter, Miller said.
Longtime establishment The pre-World War IIera building has housed restaurants, dance clubs, bars and, in its final years, was a Chinese restaurant, lounge and pool hall. The New Peking, which was built in the late 1930s or early 1940s, was valued at $265,770 in 2009 for 2010 taxes, according to the county Assessor’s Office.
The 0.63 acres it sits on was valued at $203,490. When Paul and Genevieve Fletcher built the Top Spot during World War II, it featured the “biggest dance floor west of Seattle,” their daughter-in-law, Joan Gill, told the Peninsula Daily News on July 6. Helen Kullmann of Port Townsend and her husband, Dale, bought the business in 1971. The Kullmanns sold it to Henry Yee, who named it Henry Yee’s Restaurant before the Fong family acquired it in 1985 and renamed it the New Peking.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Wednesday, December 14, 2011 PAGE
Good reasons to thank a logger SOMEONE RECENTLY ASKED me to write a story about loggers, which is a real coincidence since I happen to be in the middle of writing a book entitled Loggers I Have Known. Loggers have gotten a bad reputation Pat Neal lately. They are blamed for everything from noise pollution to cutting down trees. Fair enough. Loggers do cut down trees. That might be a good thing. You’re reading this on paper, made from wood, maybe inside a house built of wood, warm and toasty on a frozen morning because you have a wood stove. You should thank a logger and
count your blessings. Maybe you’re lucky enough to have indoor plumbing. What toilet is complete without toilet paper? Would aluminum foil be a sustainable substitute in this age of environmental awareness? Loggers do make noise, but one man’s noise pollution is another man’s job. It seems as if people these days would rather have trees rot in the woods to make soil than give someone a job cutting a board out of them. They believe it’s the topsoil that grows trees. If that was true, then the world-record-sized, cedar, fir, hemlock and spruce of the Olympic Peninsula rain forest would be growing someplace with topsoil, like Iowa. They don’t. Our trees grow out of steep mountains of solid rock. That’s where Clyde found us logging on the dawn of a frosty morning.
We were trying to untangle a chunk of rusty wire rope with marlin spikes and hammers, all part of an effort to salvage some old-growth windfalls, cut them into cants and recycle them into someone’s house. “This reminds me of the last Depression,” Clyde observed. He should know. Clyde was born in a logging camp, grew up in the Great Depression, then shipped overseas in the war, the big one, World War II. Then he came home to make the postwar boom that made our country so cool. Clyde had logged more timber than we would ever see in our lifetime. By then, Clyde was retired so he had plenty of time to shoot the breeze, and we almost had enough sense to listen. Our logging show was a pleasant setting, with mossy rocks for benches around a stump fire where a Dutch oven full of elk
Peninsula Voices Hunting deplored On Nov. 17, 2011, bang! With one shot the buck went down. He couldn’t believe it! He was shot on private property. People drive up and down the road all the time, and all he ever had to do was step out of their way. That wasn’t good enough this time. Some idiot got out of his maroon Dodge pickup truck, took a step, aimed a strange object at him and down he went. Someone had changed the rules of the game and no one had told him to run. Within five minutes, the neighbors arrived and the two point buck had already been tossed into the back of the truck. They asked the hunter who gave him permission to hunt on private land. He replied, “There weren’t any signs posted.” Really? Every responsible hunter knows landowners are not required to post signs, and [that] permission must be granted. What you did took no skill. You had your tag, your truck and your rifle, but no permission. I hope the meat goes
stew bubbled to one side, and plenty of hot coffee. Clyde watched the proceedings for a while and said, “I’ve got just the thing you need in my truck.” That much was true. Inside the back of Clyde’s truck there were enough tools and survival equipment to build a cabin. He rummaged around for a while and came up with a magic tool, the black powder wedge. This was an antique explosive device about the size of a quart bottle that you filled with gunpowder pounded into a log and ignited. The explosion would then split the log lengthwise, saving us the trouble of cutting it into cants. The trouble was, it had been so long since Clyde had used the exploding wedge, he had forgotten just how much powder you should use. “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth
overdoing,” Clyde said as he filled the wedge to the brim full of powder. Then he pounded it into the end of a log while I hid behind a large stump. After several attempts to light the fuse there was a loud “Boom.” When the smoke cleared, I poked my head around the stump. The log was shattered into kindling sticks. Clyde was still standing there, wondering where I went off to. That was a good day’s logging.

For just $1 (and a promise not to scrap her) plus an investment which probably would not cost any more than your current “waterfront plan,” you could have a convention center, museum, restaurant etc., which would be something worth writing home about.

Authority to arrest The summary of the Defense Reauthorization Bill [“Eye on Congress,” PDN Dec. 5] outlines the problematic judicial issue of holding terrorist suspects under military, rather than civilian rules, but does not mention the section about extending those procedures to American citizens. That section says the president “is not required to follow” the outlined judicial procedures when American citizens are involved. Supporters claim that means American citizens are not at risk. But notice the wording: Not that the president must not or cannot, but only that he/she “is not
Newt Gingrich required” to follow the procedures. This essentially gives the president the right to authorize arrests of American citizens and to incarcerate them indefinitely without counsel and without trial. Personally, I consider even the suggestion of using such procedures, for citizens and noncitizens alike to be unconscionable. But whatever your political position, hopefully we agree on one thing: We believe in the Constitution

Plastic bag ban grows across Western Washington MUKILTEO HAS BECOME the latest Western Washington city to ban plastic carry-out grocery bags. The measure is aimed at cutting pollution in Puget Sound and the ocean where plastic bags can harm whales, seals and salmon. In 2010, a beached gray whale in West Seattle was found with 20 plastic bags in its stomach. With this new policy, Mukilteo becomes the third city in the state to ban plastic bags, joining Bellingham and Edmonds. The next one might be the state’s largest: Seattle. The Seattle City Council is also considering a plastic bag ban.
PENINSULA POLL . . . ■ Should North Olympic Peninsula jurisdictions ban plastic bags? peninsuladailynews.com
Mukilteo won’t implement its ordinance for a year to give retailers time to get used to the idea, exhaust store supplies and give City Hall time to promote use of reusable bags. Edmonds adopted a similar approach, putting its ban into effect in August 2010, a year after it was approved by its City Council. The city of Bellingham last July passed a similar ban to take effect in July 2012.

There are exceptions to most of the bans. Bags for takeout food at restaurants as well as the smaller bags for meat, bulk foods and vegetables at stores, and for newspapers, door hangers and pet waste are among those that will still be allowed. It’s estimated that every American household uses between 520 and 1,000 bags per year, Mukilteo Planning Director Heather McCartney said. The national recycling rate for plastic bags is less than 5 percent, she said. Plastic bags consume more resources and produce more waste than reusable bags, and cause more problems than paper

Thompson eager to practice
Hawks keep rolling thanks to defense Lynchâ€™s runs are also key BY TIM BOOTH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND, Calif. â€” Klay Thompson has felt a little bit more like Golden Stateâ€™s team manager lately than a first-round pick. important it was. We had This is hardly how the this whole thing rolling.â€? Seattle trails Detroit determined rookie expected and Atlanta by two games for the final two wild card spots. The Seahawks are also one game behind Dallas and Chicago. The Falcons and Cowboys own tiebreakers over Seattle due to head-to-head victories earlier this season. To even make it interesting, the Seahawks must win out, beginning Sunday at the Bears before returning home to face San Francisco and closing the season at improving Arizona. Whether or not Seattle can close the year with seven wins in its final eight games, the Seahawks have hit on a winning formula with Lynch. He continued the finest stretch of his career on Monday night while setting a new career high with his ninth rushing touchdown on a 16-yard dash with 2:57 left. Lynch is the leading rusher in the NFL in the last six games with 706 yards rushing â€” more than 100 yards ahead of Tennesseeâ€™s Chris Johnson â€” and is 31 yards shy of his third 1,000-yard season. Since Week 9, Seattle is second in the NFL with 850 yards rushing, trailing only The â€œOriginalâ€? Since 1957 Denver despite losing three starters on the offensive line to season-ending injuries. â€œI think itâ€™s just a thing PORT ANGELES, WA U.S.A. that weâ€™re growing,â€?

SEATTLE â€” When Pete Carroll looks back at his second season in charge in Seattle, he can be impressed by a midseason turnaround after the Seahawks discovered a long-absent running game and a youthful defense that improved throughout the season. And heâ€™ll likely lament two plays that could ultimately be what keeps the Seahawks (6-7) from a second straight postseason trip. Seattleâ€™s impressive second-half charge continued on Monday night with a 30-13 rout of St. Louis for the Seahawksâ€™ fourth win in the last five games. The surge has brought them back to the fringes of the NFC wild-card chase and been a remarkable turnaround from Seattleâ€™s 2-6 start. With three weeks left, Seattle is one of the hottest teams in the league thanks to a young, stingy defense and the continued success of running back Marshawn Lynch, who topped 100 yards for the fifth time in the last six games on Monday night with 115 yards on 23 carries and had his ninth straight game with a touchdown. â€œWe have some young talent,â€? Seattle QB Tarvaris Jackson said. â€œWe have guys that are
buying into what our coaches are telling us and the skyâ€™s the limit. As long as we can stay healthy, stay focused and just keep working hard, I think weâ€™ll be fine. â€œLike you said, we have a lot of talent all around the board and most of them are young guys. â€œWe have the right amount of veterans in there to kind of add a good mix to it to make sure we keep those guys straight.â€? But even if Seattle manages to win out and gets to 9-7 for the season, it still might be too late for postseason aspirations. And the Seahawks can point to a 12-minute lapse at home in late November when Washington rallied to score the final 16 points in a 23-17 victory. When Carroll was asked about the loss to Washington, he called it a â€œtwo-play game.â€? Itâ€™s not that simple as Seattle did plenty to give away a 10-point lead in the closing minutes, but Carroll wasnâ€™t entirely wrong. The Seahawks led 17-7 with 12 minutes remaining then gave up a 28-yard touchdown run to Roy Helu and a 50-yard touchdown pass from Rex Grossman to Anthony Armstrong on third-and-19 with 6 minutes remaining. â€œIt wasnâ€™t us blowing it. They made their plays on us when they had to and they got a win,â€? Carroll said in reference to the Washington loss. â€œSo unfortunately thatâ€™s a huge game to us. Think about that game and how

damage in the first half, carrying a sluggish Rider team with eight points on 4-of-4 shooting during a first quarter that ended in a 13-13 tie. He did miss one free throw during that time. But the 6-foot-8 senior quickly pounced on the rebound over two Redskins and put it back in the basket. It was exactly the sort of display of raw physical dominance that has the Rider coaching staff excited about what’s to come from a player who spent the past three years on the sidelines. “We have pretty high standards of him, but he’s still getting better,” Armstrong said. “He’s a raw talent, obviously. “He has a lot of growth still to grow, and learn how to seal and just be a more complete post player, and he will do that. He’s a very coachable kid and he’s just
been a pleasure. “He stepped right in like he didn’t miss a beat, and he’s been playing real well.” Webster could only take solace in the fact that his team went toeto-toe with the senior-laden Riders for a half. Kyle Kelly scored all seven of his points in the first half, with five of those coming in the first quarter. Will O’Brien gave the Redskins their only lead of the game, 17-15, after hitting a pair of free throws with 3:55 to go in the second quarter. Port Townsend, however, would score just five more points during the next 12 minutes. Paul Spaltenstein added seven points for the Redskins, and senior post Chad Smith had six points, including an athletic tip dunk off a missed layup in the
fourth quarter. The Redskins finished 15 of 39 from the field, with seven of those baskets coming after the game was well out of reach in the fourth. They head to Kingston tonight for another league game. “In the first half we hung right in there with one of the better teams in the Olympic League, but doing it for 32 minutes is a little bit harder to do,” Webster said. “I was happy with a lot of the things we did. We just didn’t sustain it.” Port Angeles 60, Port Townsend 39 Port Angeles Port Townsend

Rider girls defeat PT; Knights sweep Wolves Jones, Hinrichs spark PA with 12 points each PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Kiah Jones and Maddy Hinrichs scored 12 points each to spark the Port Angeles girls basketball team in a 60-33 victory over Port Townsend in Olympic League action Monday night. Irina Lyons netted a game-high 18 points for the Redskins, scoring most of her points on drives to the basket. “They were able to drive and cut all night long,” Port Angeles coach Michael Poindexter said. “They shot only two 3-pointers in the game.” Port Townsend (1-3 league, 2-3 overall) stayed close in the first half, trailing only 39-25 at halftime, but the Riders (3-1, 3-2) pulled away for good in the second half, outscoring the Redskins 30-8. “We struggled a little in everything in the first half,” Poindexter said. “We didn’t move our feet well and we fouled a lot.” It was a sloppy game, especially in the first half. Both teams are 21 fouls each in the game and the Riders shot 30 free throws to the Redskins’ 27. “We did much better in the second half,” Poindexter said. “We settled for outside shots against their zone in the first half, but in the second half we began scoring inside off their zone.” Ten players scored for Port Angeles in the game.

“We struggled a little in everything in the first half.” MICHAEL POINDEXTER Port Angeles girls coach Olympic League game Monday night. It was the first loss of the season for the Class 2A Wolves, who are now 3-1 in league and 5-1 overall. The 3A Knights, meanwhile, are now 2-1 in league and 2-3 overall. “We got off to a slow start and never recovered,” Sequim coach Greg Glasser said. “We shot poorly from the perimeter and gave them too many second shots.” The Wolves made just 3 of 21 shots from 3-point range. Webb sank a team-high 18 points while Brocklesby scored 12. Marshall Stevens led the Knights with 26 points while Deonti Dixon added 11. The Wolves scored only four points in the first quarter and it was uphill from there. Bremerton led 26-19 at the half but only 36-34 going into the final period.

Ex-WaMu executives, FDIC reach settlement BY PALLAVI GOGOI THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE â€” The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. has reached a settlement worth $64 million in its civil suit against three former executives who ran Washington Mutual, the largest bank to fail in U.S. history. The settlement, which hasnâ€™t been announced publicly yet, was made with the Seattle-based bankâ€™s three top executives â€” former CEO Kerry Killinger, former Chief Operating Officer Stephen Rotella and David Schneider, the former chief of home loans. The settlement amount of $64 million is mostly
made up of the executives giving up claims to golden parachutes, bonuses and retirement funds, rather than cash that the executives have to pay. It is also just a fraction of the $900 million the FDIC had sought to recover in a suit filed in March.
Long-term safety risked The agency had accused the executives of gross negligence and reckless disregard for the long-term safety of the bank. Washington Mutual was seized by federal regulators in September 2008 and immediately sold to JPMorgan Chase & Co. for $1.88 billion.
The three executives were in charge of the bank when it wrote millions of subprime mortgages to borrowers who didnâ€™t have the ability to repay the loans. When the real estate bubble burst, hundreds of its customers lost their homes to foreclosure. The bank reeled from losses and ultimately went under in 2008. Killinger alone received more than $65 million in compensation from 2005 to 2008 for leading an institution that ultimately failed. The paltry settlement amount and the fact that the executives will likely be paying very little from their own pockets come at a time
of public outcry over how federal agencies have handled the misdeeds of financial firms that led to the financial crisis.
Citigroup incident Last month, a federal judge in New York struck down a $285 million settlement that Citigroup reached with the Securities and Exchange Commission because there was no admission of guilt on the part of the bank. The U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff criticized regulators for shielding the public from details of the firmâ€™s wrongdoing.
Big names to build giant plane to launch people, cargo to orbit THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE â€” Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and aerospace pioneer Burt Rutan announced Tuesday theyâ€™re building a giant airplane and spaceship to zip people and cargo into orbit. But unlike traditional rockets and government spaceships, this new commercial spaceship will drop from a high-flying airplane instead of blasting off from a launch pad. â€œWhen I was growing up, Americaâ€™s space program was the symbol of aspiration,â€? Allen said at a news conference. â€œFor me, the fascination with space never ended. I never stopped dreaming what might be possible.â€? Allen bemoaned the fact that government-sponsored spaceflight is waning and said his new project would â€œkeep America at the forefront of space explorationâ€? and give a new generation of children something to dream about. â€œWe have plenty and many challenges ahead of us,â€? he said.
Allen and Rutan join a field crowded with Silicon Valley veterans who grew up on â€œStar Trekâ€? and now want to fill a void created with the retirement of NASAâ€™s space shuttle. Several companies are competing to develop spacecraft to deliver cargo and astronauts to the International Space Station. The duo won a prize in 2004 with a spaceship that went into space but not orbit. Their new business model likely includes tourism and satellites.
Another older rocket company, Orbital Sciences Corp., uses this method for unmanned rockets to launch satellites. But Allenâ€™s rockets will eventually carry people. The first tests, scheduled for 2016, will be unmanned. It should be about five years before people can fly on the system that Allen and Rutan are calling Stratolaunch. The spaceship and booster will be provided by another Internet tycoon, Elon Musk of PayPal, who has built a successful commercial rocket. Rutan will build the carCapsule under plane rier aircraft, which will use Their new plane will six 747 engines. have a wingspan of 380 feet, The company will bill its longer than a football field. The plane will carry under its belly a space capsule with its own booster rocket, take off from a runway and go high into the air. Then the plane will release the spaceship, which will rocket to orbit. Specializing in This method saves improving the money by not using rocket fuel to get off the ground.
PORT TOWNSEND â€” David Sullivan, one of the three Jefferson County commissioners, was elected to chair the Executive Council of the Peninsula Regional Transportation Planning Organization at its quarterly meeting. The membersâ€™ vote was unanimous. He succeeded Mike Chapman, a Clallam County commissioner. He stepped down from the position after six years.

Its members include a county commissioner from each of the four counties and a City Council member from each of the incorporated cities within these counties. It also includes representatives from the regionâ€™s tribes, transit agencies, port authorities and major employers. The Peninsula Regional Transportation Planning Organization is responsible for coordinating regional transportation planning efforts and has promoted major transportation improvements such as the Hood Canal Bridge rehabilitation project.

DEAR ABBY: I am an educated woman in my late 20s. I have been married for several years to a wonderful man, and we were recently blessed with our first child. Since our wedding, my relationship with my mother-in-law has been an evolving one. Since the inception of “Desperate Housewives” on TV, she seems to believe she’s a character on the show. She trots around in revealing clothing looking like a streetwalker. She spends most of her time gossiping with her newfound buddies who are half her age and who seem to delight in dressing her up to make her the talk of the town. As a little girl, when I dreamed of how my life would be as a married woman, it was never like this. My dreams never included a MIL who enjoys seeing people look at her in disbelief as she struts across the room. I don’t want this to be an example for my daughter. Confronting her doesn’t work — she responds with guilt and mockery. In other words, she always wins. I’m at a loss and have given up trying to figure her out. Please help. Desperate Housewife
12 years. I have a daughVan Buren ter from a previous marriage, and he has a son from a previous relationship. My daughter is married and lives in another state. My 22-year-old stepson, “Junior,” lives with us. He has a history of drug and alcohol abuse and has stolen from us. I recently discovered that another item of mine was missing. I told Joe it has to stop — that I can’t live like a prisoner in my own home. Joe will not kick Junior out of the house. Joe said he would leave but that he won’t put Junior out on the street like a dog. Our marriage was solid until Junior’s problems started a year ago. I’d never ask my husband to make a choice. Junior is his son. I, on the other hand, feel like a stranger in my own home. We barely speak now and have been sleeping in separate rooms. I am at a loss. Abby, have you any advice? Dear Desperate: As an educated Stranger woman, it’s time for you to smarten in My Own Home up and accept your mother-in-law for the “character” she is — warts and all. Dear Stranger: Yes.

Peninsula Five-Day Forecast TODAY
Rain and drizzle.
Cloudy with showers.
Rather cloudy with a chance of rain.
Cloudy with a passing shower.
The Peninsula A frontal system will approach the region today in association with an upper-level trough that will eventually sink down into Northern California later in the week. As a result, it will be a mostly cloudy day with periods of rain, mainly to the north. Farther east, toward the Cascades, clouds will break for more sunshine. A bit of rain will continue tonight as the trough digs farther south. Snow will also spread into the Cascades. Expect a few lingering showers Thursday with snow showers in the higher elevations to the east.
