The MV Kennewick is shown on Puget Sound during sea trials late last year.

A ferry to start the year State’s newest will launch Friday BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — The MV Kennewick car ferry will be inaugurated with speeches, musical performances and a public tour Friday. The speeches will begin at 11 a.m. at the Port Townsend ferry dock and are expected to continue for 30 minutes. After the speeches, the $60 million vessel, which will be moored in the terminal’s second slip, will be open to the public for informal, self-guided tours until 1 p.m. During the tour, the Wild Rose Chorale and the Airstream Travellers will perform on the ferry. The Kennewick will be the third state vessel to be inaugurated in little more than a year — the three being the first state ferries built in more than a decade.

Accidental cellphone 9-1-1 calls tie up emergency resources BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Port Townsend beginnings All three new 64-car ferries — beginning with the Chetzemoka, then the Salish — began service on the Port TownsendCoupeville route. “We are grateful to get a third new boat,” said Port Townsend Director of Marketing Christina Pivarnik. “Having regular, reliable ferry service is essential for our downtown businesses.” Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen, the chairwoman of the Senate Transportation Committee who — along with Rep. Judy Clibborn, the chairwoman of the House Transportation Committee — fought for two-boat service on the route, will not be present at Friday’s celebration because she had scheduled a town meeting on that date.

Although cellphones have made it a lot easier for people to get help in emergencies, dispatchers on the North Olympic Peninsula say 9-1-1 pocket dials are on the rise. Pocket dials — when a number is inadvertently is dialed on a cellphone in a pocket or a purse — or other misdials demand as much attention from law enforcement as emergency calls that are actual calls for help. Every time dispatchers receive a 9-1-1 emergency call, legitimate or not, the information is relayed to law enforcement officers. Police officers and deputies often must stop what they’re doing and drive to the location of the caller to make sure every-

thing is OK. Janet Silvus, director of Jefferson Communications, or JeffCom, said a law enforcement unit is dispatched on two to five 9-1-1 hang-ups a day in East Jefferson County. “Misdials take up resources and time,” Silvus said. “That’s just part of the job.” Steve Romberg, manager of Peninsula Communications, or PenCom, in Clallam County said about 75 percent of 9-1-1 hang-ups originate from cellphones or smartphones.

Why misdials occur Misdials occur when people stay on the line after they reach a 9-1-1 dispatcher by mistake, rather than hanging up when they realize they erroneously dialed emergency dispatchers.

Port Townsend to revive sea songs of yore Series of shanties begins Thursday at maritime center BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — Sea shanties will be given a new lease on life on Thursday, as a group of musicians begin a practice of monthly gatherings intended to keep the tradition going.

The inaugural Sea Shanty Song Circle and Sing-Along takes place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Northwest Maritime Center, 431 Water St., and will continue on the first Thursday of every month. Admission is free and the Chandlery will stay open late to serve refreshments, said Mike James, who is one of the event’s organizers. “Shanties speak to the life before the internal combustion engine,” James said. “It comes from a time when


people did work by hand doing what required muscles and power, and the songs gave them a sense of unity.” James said that workers on a ship would sing the songs as a way to stay focused on the task, and to build a sense of camaraderie among sailors. “You would sing the song until the task was done,” he said. “If you finished the task with three verses to go, you wouldn’t sing those verses.” James said that shanties also

were a way for workers to speak out against abusive bosses. “Sometimes you could sing what you really felt about your boss,” he said. “You were doing the work while you were singing so they couldn’t really object as long as you weren’t too insulting.” In a song circle, the participants gather around and each person is given the chance to choose the next selection. Many of the songs are call and response and are easily

learned, James said. As a guide, the gathering will use the books left behind by Stephen Lewis, a Port Townsend shanty enthusiast who died last year. Lewis collected songs all his life, and his wife has allowed use of his books which James called “bibles” of sea lore. James said he expected sea shanty enthusiasts from throughout the Puget Sound to show up on Thursday “and there will be some pretty powerful voices.”

A3 Briefly: Nation City police said a man has confessed to a string of arson attacks at an Islamic cultural center and four other sites on New Year’s Day. The man was taken into custody Tuesday. His name was not immediately released. Police spokesman Paul Browne said he made statements implicating himself in the attacks and had personal grievances with each targeted location. Crude Molotov cocktails were tossed into a convenience store, two homes in Queens, one in nearby Nassau County and an Islamic center. He is facing arson-related charges. It’s not clear if the incidents were bias crimes, but it’s being investigated.

Motive in L.A. arson cases is suggested LOS ANGELES — A State Department official said a German man was identified as a suspect in the Los Angeles arson spree because his mother was the subject of a provisional arrest request by Germany. Speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigations are ongoing, the official told The Associated Press on Tuesday that authoriBurkhart ties learned about Harry Burkhart while working on the mother’s case and recognized him in security video of the arson suspect. “When they saw the security footage, they recognized him and they contacted the arson task force,” the official said. The official said the footage was seen on Sunday and Los Angeles authorities were alerted immediately. Burkhart was picked up on Monday, the official said. The official didn’t know the status of Burkhart’s mother, Dorothee, or what type of visas the pair had entered the country on.

Iran general tells U.S. Navy to keep aircraft carrier away THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran’s army chief Tuesday warned an American aircraft carrier not to return to the Persian Gulf in Tehran’s latest tough rhetoric over the strategic waterway, part of a feud with the United States over new sanctions that has sparked a jump in oil prices. Gen. Ataollah Salehi spoke as a 10-day Iranian naval exercise ended near the Strait of Hormuz at the mouth of the Gulf. Iranian officials have said the drill aimed to show that Iran could close the vital oil passage, as it has threatened to do if the

Quick Read

United States enacts strong new sanctions over Iran’s nuclear program. The strait, leading into the Gulf of Oman and Arabian Sea, is the only possible route for tankers transporting crude from the oilrich states of the Persian Gulf to markets. A sixth of the world’s oil exports passes through it every day. Oil prices rose to more than $101 a barrel Tuesday amid concerns that rising tensions between Western powers and Iran could lead to crude supply disruptions. The jump came a day after Iran test-fired a surface-to-surface cruise missile as part of the

maneuvers, prompting Iran’s navy chief to coast that the strait is “completely under our control.” Salehi’s comments apparently referred to the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis, which along with another vessel exited the Gulf a week ago after a visit to Dubai’s Jebel Ali port, according to the U.S. Navy’s Bahrain-based 5th Fleet. His warning that it not come back seemed aimed at further depicting the Hormuz Strait and the Gulf as under Iran’s domination. The strait is divided between Iran and Oman’s territorial waters, and international law requires them to allow free passage.

TWO PEOPLE WERE arrested in Nevada on Tuesday in the killing of an elderly Utah couple and the shooting of a woman outside a Nevada casino, Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal Jim Phelps said in Salt Lake City. Phelps said Logan Welles McFarland, 24, and Angela Atwood, 25, were found Tuesday afternoon walking in a desolate area near Interstate 80 about 35 miles west of the Utah border. Phelps said the couple didn’t resist and were taken into custody as suspects in both the killings and the shooting of a woman during a botched carjacking in Nevada. The couple had abandoned their car and weapons.

A MISSISSIPPI JUDGE has thrown out a $322 million lawsuit verdict believed to be the largest asbestos award for a single plaintiff in U.S. history. The case began to unravel last year after defense lawyers asked the Mississippi Supreme Court to remove the presiding judge because he allegedly neglected to disclose that his parents had been involved in similar litigation. A specially appointed judge issued an order vacating the verdict and award last week. A suit filed by Thomas Brown claimed he had inhaled asbestos dust while mixing drilling mud sold and manufactured by Chevron Phillips Chemical Co. and Union Carbide Corp.

FRANKY THE FLORIDA drug dog’s super-sensitive nose is at the heart of a question to the U.S. Supreme Court: Does a police K-9’s sniff outside a house give officers the right to get a search warrant for illegal drugs, or is the sniff an unconstitutional search? Florida’s highest state court said Franky’s ability to detect marijuana growing inside a Miami-area house from outside a closed front door crossed the constitutional line. State Attorney General Pam Bondi, an elected Republican, wants the nation’s justices to reverse that ruling. The Supreme Court could decide this month whether to take the case.

Until those employers on the “dirty list” stop the practice, they won’t be able to obtain credit from government and private banks. Their products also will be boycotted by companies that have signed the National Slave Labor Eradication Pact, which according to local media represents 25 percent of Brazil’s gross domestic product.

Missing sailor HONOLULU â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Seattle sailor who turned up safe after the Coast Guard suspended an exhaustive search is on the Big Island having his boat repaired so that he can make the voyage home. Ira Foreman called his ex-wife Saturday to say he was fine and never in any distress. The Coast Guard said the 66-year-old didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know rescuers spent four days scouring more than 200,000 square miles for him. The Coast Guard said strong winds pushed Foreman out of their search zone. His brother said Tues-

day he was worried but held out hope because the experienced sailor has been the focus of a Coast Guard search many years ago while sailing from Fiji to Hawaii. Kent Foreman describes his brother as a loner who typically spends months on his boat.

Fire fatality LYNNWOOD â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Fire officials in Lynnwood said a mobile home fire has killed a 50-year-old man.

The city fire marshal said the fire started accidentally in the living room. The Associated Press

Misdials: Lock keypad to avoid pocket calls CONTINUED FROM A1 â&#x20AC;&#x153;On cellphones, locking the keypad is definitely one of them,â&#x20AC;? she said. Other tips include keep cellphones out of back pockets, take your time when dialing and be careful when cleaning phones. Older portable land line phones have been known to emit a distress signal when the battery gets too low and dial 9-1-1 automatically, Silvus said. Silvus emphasized that no one should hesitate to call for help when it is needed. She said that some people are hesitant to call 9-1-1 because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to bother anybody. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very difficult to get the elderly to call 9-1-1,â&#x20AC;? Silvus said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A person should call 9-1-1 anytime they feel a situation is an emergency to them.â&#x20AC;? JeffCom 911 Communications provides dispatch-

Department. Romberg also said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to lock the keypad on a hand-held phone. Romberg said many misdials occur when people try to dial the 9-1-2 prefix for cellphones common in Clallam County. PenCom last month received 1,662 9-1-1 calls from cell phones, 1,092 emergency calls from land lands and 18 from Voice over Internet Protocol, Romberg said. PenCom is a division of the Port Angeles Police Department that provides emergency dispatch services to the Port Angeles, Sequim and Forks police departments, the Clallam County Sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office, Olympic Ambulance, Forks Ambulance, Lower Elwha and LaPush tribal police, Olympic National Park rangers and Clallam County Fire District Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. Donated cell phones are able to reach 9-1-1 even

after the phone has been dropped from a cell phone company. These phones canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t receive incoming calls, however. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If folks give an old, retired cellphone to a child, take the battery out of it,â&#x20AC;? Romberg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those phones will call 9-1-1, but nobody can call them back. After taking a 9-1-1 misdial or hang-up, dispatchers will advise law enforcement of prior history from the phone number or location. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We advise law enforcement every time,â&#x20AC;? Romberg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Law enforcement takes that information and decides whether or not to respond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Very often they do go.â&#x20AC;?

Safer walkway for seniors dedicated Path to Sequim Walmart, efforts to get it celebrated BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; City leaders, supportive seniors living in the Vintage at Sequim apartments on Brackett Road and Walmart executives celebrated the official opening of a paved sidewalk from the apartment complex to the megastore at Priest Road. The 1,150-foot-long asphalt walkway built by Lakeside Industries of Port Angeles is a safer, flatter approach for seniors on foot and in scooters and was built thanks to a $20,000 donation from the Walmart. Store manager Lee Ruiz said the Sequim Walmart will open a new grocery store addition March 28. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For us, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just glad itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a safer path for our customers coming through here,â&#x20AC;? Ruiz said at the ribbon-cutting ceremony that he and Walmart Regional Market Manager Tom Etchells attended along with at least 20 Vintage apartment residents. The walkway also has a four-person park bench donated by Walmart.

Effective troublemaker Andy Nilles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a 91-yearold Vintage retiree, led the apartment complexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s petition drive calling for the pedestrian improvement that gathered more 100 signatures last year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; attended along with city leaders that

included Mayor Ken Hays, Council Member Ted Miller, City Manager Steve Burkett and City Clerk Karen Reese. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been possible without Andy, who is a very effective troublemaker, but we like those,â&#x20AC;? Hays told the small crowd who chuckled at the comment and applauded Nilles for his activism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just glad they got it here before I kicked the bucket,â&#x20AC;? said Nilles, who was in the hospital undergoing treatment for a heart-valve issue when Lakeside built the trail in early to midDecember. It was Nilles who went before the Sequim City Council last year, informing the elected officials that Vintage apartment residents who make frequent trips to Walmart for medication and JEFF CHEW/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS groceries needed a safe Vintage at Sequim apartment resident George Champagne and his dog, Charlie, chill out together walkway.

Tuesday morning on the new park bench along the asphalt path recently completed on Brackett Road, the result of Vintage residents petitioning the city of Sequim for a safer, flatter path to Priest Road crossing Walmart on Priest Road. City officials dedicated the path built by Port Angeles-based Lakeside Another issue was the Industries with Vintage residents and Walmart representatives joining them. crossing on Priest Road. Since the petition was presented to the council, the Priest Road crossing has been improved with new Clallam County Public Utility District street lights and a more defined crosswalk. Walmart executives saw how residents were having trouble walking across Priest Road, Etchells said, and anticipate more traffic when the store completes and opens the 35,577-squarefoot grocery store addition to

the west side of the existing 113,000-square-foot Walmart store, which underwent remodeling. Etchells told city officials that the store expects business to grow by as much as 30 percent with the Walmart grocery store addition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to thank Walmart very much because I think they were a big instigator in all this,â&#x20AC;? Nilles said. Other vintage residents also voiced appreciation for

the new walkway that runs on the south side of Brackett Road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is such an improvement,â&#x20AC;? said Vintage resident Dick Engh, sitting in his scooter on the new path. While Nilles wanted a four-way stop at the intersection, Haines and Garlington said the intersection did not qualify because of heavy traffic on Priest Road entering the Walmart parking lot.

Prosecutors propose stiffer DUI sentences PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

At a news conference last week to announce proposed changes to state law that would increase the punishments for vehicular homicide and vehicular assault, Satterberg was joined by Pierce County Prosecuting Attorney Mark Lindquist; state Rep. Christopher Hurst, D-Enumclaw; Nabila Lacey; and other families who’ve lost loved ones to drunken and impaired drivers. It was noted that 170 people were killed by impaired drivers in 2010, compared with 154 slaying victims,


SEATTLE — Nabila Lacey said her two young children spent the Christmas holiday “wishing for a gift they couldn’t have.” That gift was their father, Steven Lacey, a 43-year-old Google worker who was killed in July by a suspected drunken driver whose blood-alcohol content allegedly was 0.29 percent, more than three times the legal limit of 0.08 percent. Patrick Rexroat — who allegedly pounded his chest like a gorilla after slamming his SUV into Lacey’s BMW on Northeast 85th Street in Kirkland near Interstate 405 — is being held in the King County Jail in lieu of $1 million bail. Charged with vehicular homicide and reckless driving, Rexroat, 56, of Snohomish faces a prison sentence of 2½ to about 3½ years if convicted. “My children are suffering,” Nabila Lacey said. “We live in a void now, and I hope it doesn’t happen to anyone else.”

Increased penalties Hurst, a retired police officer and the chairman of the House public-safety and emergency-preparedness committee, is sponsoring legislation in this year’s session that begins Monday that would make the punishment for driving drunk and killing someone equal to the punishment for manslaughter. Under the proposed law, those convicted of vehicular homicide while driving under the influence would face prison terms of six to 8½ years, more than double the current penalties of 2½ to almost 3½ years. He recalled rolling up on his first fatal DUI crash as a young patrol officer in Ravensdale in 1981. A woman, her daughter and her sister were killed by a drunken driver. The woman’s husband, worried because his wife and daughter were late returning home, came across the crash scene before police arrived. “I will never forget the screams, the terror, the

Not sufficient Current penalties for drivers who kill — due to alcohol or drug impairment, reckless driving or driving with disregard for the safety of others — aren’t sufficient given that the loss of life is both predictable and preventable, said King County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg. He noted that with time off for good behavior, most defendants convicted of vehicular homicide see their prison sentences reduced by a third.


From left, Angela and Craig Stenseth, the parents of Jessica Stenseth, who was killed in 2010, and Jessica’s sister Erica Stenseth, with boyfriend Scott Hutson, join the families of other DUI victims at a news conference last week to announce proposed changes to the state DUI law. after drunken drivers.

McEntire casts first votes Austin to continue as Jefferson as Clallam commissioner commissioner chairman in â&#x20AC;&#x2122;12 PENINSULA DAILY NEWS


PORT ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jim McEntire was appointed vice chairman of the Board of Clallam County Commissioners on Tuesday in his first business meeting as a commissioner, while Commissioner Mike Doherty was reappointed chairman. McEntire, a Sequim Republican, defeated Democratic challenger Linda Barnfather by 4 percentage points in the general election last November. He was sworn into office by Clallam County District Court Judge Pick Porter on Friday. Commissioner Mike Chapman cast motions for the appointments. Chapman was the vice chairman last year. Last month, the three commissioners approved a $78.8 million budget, including capital projects and a $31.2 million general fund budget for day-to-day operations, including wages and salaries for 381 employees. Commissioners gather for weekly work sessions Monday mornings and cast votes in business meetings every Tuesday. Commissioners are elected to four-year terms.

T h e board took on a new look for the first time in 11 years with McEntire replacMcEntire ing former Commissioner Steve Tharinger. T h a ringer did not seek reelection in order to focus on his Doherty other job as a state legislator. T h a ringer serves Clallam and Jefferson counties and about Chapman half of Grays Harbor County as a 24th District representative. McEntire was scheduled for a meet and greet with county staffers later Tuesday followed by an orientation session. One of McEntireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first votes was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? on a resolution authorizing a reduction in service hours for the

Forks public health section of the Health and Human Services Department. Due to potential state cuts, the county will not replace a part-time customer service specialist who resigned Dec. 27. As a result, the office will be closed Mondays and Wednesdays. The office, which had been open four days per week, will now be open Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Commissioners also set a Jan. 17 hearing on an emergency budget furlough policy. County workers will take 16 unpaid furlough days this year. Union members voted to approve the furloughs in order to save jobs. The furlough days will be Mondays scattered throughout the year. The first is Jan. 30. McEntire, who became a county employee Jan. 1, abstained from voting on last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting minutes and payroll because he was not in office at the time.

PORT TOWNSEND â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Jefferson County Board of Commissioners reelected District 3 Commissioner John Austin as chairman for the 2012 calendar year at a meeting Monday. District 1 Commissioner Phil Johnson made the motion and it was seconded by District 2 Commissioner David Sullivan. This will be Austinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second year as chairman after

Firefighters hailed as heroes after they rescue mom, two daughters THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BELLINGHAM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Some Bellingham firefighters who pulled a mom and her two daughters from their burning home are being hailed as heroes as the family recovers from its injuries. The Bellingham Herald reported the firefighters saved the three after the

father of the family injured himself while trying to get to his family. The engine company officer who led the dramatic rescue praised the father for providing accurate information that helped firefighters locate his wife and two daughters. Veteran firefighter

Danny Anderson said the outcome could have been entirely different. A preliminary investigation shows the fire started in the living room where a guest was sleeping. He escaped unharmed. The duplex was destroyed, and two cats apparently died.

Our minister, Wendell Ankeny, loves the Nativity story and on New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day extended Advent an extra Sunday by focusing his sermon on it. One point Ankeny made: that being a shepherd was not considered a prestigious profession in Hebrew culture. So unlike the figures in Christmas pageants, the shepherds abiding in the fields were not rosy-cheeked boys in bathrobes with fake beards. Instead, they were more like men you might see in the Boat Haven, with a few daysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; growth of beard. It was the shepherds, however, who first heard the good news that the angels proclaimed from the heavens: that Christ was born in Bethlehem. And it struck me why: Shepherds, like sailors, look up. I have heard that human beings are not genetically programmed to look up and from experience know that it is true. Perhaps developing the ability to walk upright favored people who looked down at their feet or ahead to where they were going. So this New Year, in addition to looking down at your cellphone for messages or ahead to the weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appointments on your calendar, I suggest doing this: Look up. There might be a message.

Aftermath: Mourning, reflection Weapons law is debated again BY DONNA GORDON BLANKINSHIP THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Flowers stand next to a small memorial book for Mount Rainer National Park Ranger Margaret Anderson at the Nisqually entrance to the park Tuesday.

Rainier workers gather for their comrade THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — Employees at Mount Rainier National Park gathered Tuesday to grieve the loss of a park ranger who was fatally shot inside the park. Park spokesman Greg Shine said park employees met to come together as a community and to begin the healing process following Sunday’s fatal shooting of Margaret Anderson. Searchers found the body of the suspected gunman Monday. Benjamin Colton Barnes was lying partially submerged in a frigid mountain creek with snow banks standing several feet high on each side.

Park closed The park remains closed while the investigation continues. Shine said Tuesday it was still unknown when the park might reopen. He said discussions would begin this week

Rev. Paul Kritsch, told The The couple, who lived in

the tiny town of Eatonville, met when both worked as park rangers at Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah in the early 2000s. They got engaged in December 2004 while she was living in Harpers Ferry, W.Va., working as a ranger at the nearby Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park.

Trained in Georgia Margaret Anderson gained additional federal law-enforcement training in Georgia shortly after the couple married in 2005. They were later offered jobs at Mount Rainier. “That is why they decided to go out there,” Cynthia Anderson said. “It’s beautiful out there.” Margaret Anderson was born near Toronto and grew up in Connecticut and Westfield, N.J., where she graduated from high school in 1995 after performing in the marching band. She also was an artist who loved to paint.

SEATTLE — The fatal shooting of a ranger at Mount Rainier National Park has renewed debate about a nearly 2-year-old federal law that allows loaded weapons in national parks. The outgoing chairman of a national organization of Park Service retirees said that Congress should be regretting its decision. “The many congressmen and senators that voted for the legislation that allowed loaded weapons to be brought into the parks ought to be feeling pretty bad right now,” said Bill Wade, whose term as chairman of the Coalition of National Park Service Retirees ended Dec. 31. The law lets licensed gun owners bring firearms into national parks and wildlife refuges as long as they are allowed by state law. Guns are allowed in all but about 20 of the park service’s 392 locations, from Yellowstone to Yosemite — including Olympic National Park. It is still illegal to discharge a firearm in a national park. Before 2010, firearms at Mount Rainier were required to be temporarily inoperable or put away so they weren’t easily accessible. Sunday’s fatal shooting of a Park Service ranger Margaret Anderson could have been prevented, said Wade, a former superintendent of Shenandoah National Park, just outside Washington, D.C., who started his career as a professional ranger at Mount Rainier. Wade hopes Congress will reconsider the law that took effect in February 2010, but doubts that will happen in today’s political climate. A ban on guns in national

parks was instituted during the Reagan administration. President George W. Bush sought to rescind the ban near the end of his administration, and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence sued and won an injunction to stop that from happening, said Dennis Henigan, acting president of Brady Campaign. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., responded with legislation that went into effect in 2010. Calls and emails to Coburn and the National Rifle Association requesting comment were not immediately returned. In a statement about the law after it went into effect, the NRA said media fears of gun violence in parks were unlikely to be realized. “The new law affects firearms possession, not use,” the statement from the lobbying arm emphasized.

People’s right In pushing for the law change, the NRA said people have a right to defend themselves against park animals and other people. Henigan noted if park rangers had seen the rifle before it was used to shoot Anderson, they would not have been able to take it away from him. “You can always hope that the Congress will wake up and recognize that its first responsibility is to protect innocent lives,” he said. A volunteer ranger at Mount Rainier told The News Tribune he didn’t think the law change, which he opposed, had any effect on this week’s shooting. “This is murder,” said George Coulbourne, who also is a hunting safety instructor and a veteran of 60 years of hunting. “When you have someone who would spontaneously kill someone, a prohibition of guns in the park wouldn’t stop someone like that.”

Park ranger job is varied — and dangerous BY CRAIG WELCH THE SEATTLE TIMES

It’s a job unlike almost any other — part smiling host for vacationing visitors, part interpretive officer for the country’s wild and historic treasures. Yet, of the 4,000 or so National Park Service rangers, 1,500 of them are all cop. They just have to cover more ground. On any given day, a ranger such as Margaret Anderson, the 34-year-old mother of two who was shot to death Sunday at Mount Rainier National Park, may help fight a wildfire, set up signs at a snowshoe area, help rescue a stranded climber or teach colleagues emergency medicine. But a ranger also may assist a fellow law-enforcement officer who is chasing a heavily armed suspect up a remote icy road in one of the nation’s 397 national parks. “Many people still think of us as the people who clean toilets or go on walks or respond to hiking accidents,” retired park ranger and special agent Ken Johnson said. “That’s just not the case anymore.”

‘I am the police’

More complex now The job, like many in federal law enforcement, has become more complex in recent years. With 22 parks along international borders, there are more homeland-security issues. Meanwhile, reports of threats and assaults against park rangers are on the rise in the wake of the recession and increasing anti-government fervor, according to a 2010 report from Land Letter, a Washington, D.C.based natural resource-policy newsletter. Barna noted the violence also is aimed at other resource agencies, such as the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management, and in part may reflect more hypervigilant surveillance and recording. “In general, crime in parks is down,” Barna said. “Parks are still some of the safest places you can go — safer, usually, than the place you left to come visit.” Many law-enforcement

rangers also share additional duties as interpreters of a park’s wildlife and vegetation or in some other administrative post. They also are trying to stop poachers or prevent people from camping or fishing in the wrong place. The potential all that creates for a kind of occupational whiplash has been a concern among rangers for years. “If you’re a county deputy sheriff, you’re dealing with drunks and domestic violence and other issues on a daily basis,” said Scot McElveen, who retired in 2007 after serving as chief ranger in parks from Death Valley in California to John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in Oregon. “But we get pulled in so many directions, I still hear concerns that we might not always follow all the steps necessary to keep ourselves safe.”

8 killed in line of duty Before the weekend, eight Park Service rangers had been slain in the line of duty since the National Park Service was established in 1916. But Johnson noted that five of those have been killed since 1990. Eight FBI agents have been murdered in that 22-year time frame, even though they outnumber park rangers nearly 10-to-1. “I find that worrisome,” Johnson said. Still, with a law-enforcement agency so small and each incident so different, it’s almost impossible to draw meaningful conclusions from the senseless killings, experts said.

Armed National Park Service rangers on Tuesday morning check cars approaching the Nisqually entrance to Mount Rainier National Park, allowing only park employees to pass. “There is not what you would call a rising trend,” said Steve Shackelton, the Park Service’s associate director for visitor and resource protection. “When one of our people

is killed, you get thrown into an emotional state where if someone asks you whether there is an alarming trend . . . emotionally there is. “But statistically? It happens only once in awhile.”

But for Anderson’s family, her colleagues or the agency, that doesn’t make this weekend’s reality easier to bear, said an obviously shaken Shackelton.

Or, as Duane Buck, a lawenforcement ranger with 3,500-acre Valley Forge National Historic Park in Pennsylvania, said: “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to a situation and had people say, ‘No, I need the police.’ And I have to say, I am the police.” The 1,500 rangers who are commissioned law-

enforcement officers attend the same law-enforcement academy in Glynco, Ga., as most federal agents. They arrest drug dealers and rapists and deal with armed suspects, often while working alone in parks where backup may be a 20-minute drive away — if not more. “In California and along the border between us and Mexico, we still fight drug cartels growing marijuana,” said David Barna, chief spokesman for the National Park Service in Washington, D.C.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Wednesday, January 4, 2012 PAGE


Tackle boxes, rods and New Year’s BY NOW WE’VE all had it up to here with big-shot, know-itall newspaper columnists bragging about their list of New Year’s resolutions. With few variations on a Pat basic theme, the most popu- Neal lar New Year’s resolutions usually include getting organized, learning new things and helping others. In reality, these pathetic New Year’s resolutions are nothing more than empty promises and sad admissions that last year was a failure and the coming year is liable to be just as bad or worse. Here’s why. Last year, I said I was going to get organized, starting with my

tackle box collection. One person’s tackle box collection is another’s hoarding disorder. Hoarders always say we are going to get organized, someday. That’s instead of throwing the junk away. There are many reasons for this. It’s probably because if we actually went to the dump, we’d find another tackle box when we got there. It just needs a little TLC, duct tape and a bungee cord to be a proud addition to a growing tackle box collection. Then there is my collection of broken fishing rods. That could be the toughest part of being a fishing guide, watching someone break a fine custom rod. Unless you’re watching yourself break your own fine custom rod. I once thought if I saved enough broken rods, I could

Peninsula Voices


match an unbroken tip section to an unbroken rod butt to make one good rod. After collecting a 50-gallon drum of broken rods, I came upon the cruel realization that it’s always the tip section of the rod that breaks. Which left me with a collection of unbroken but useless rod butts. Forget that. This year, instead of getting organized, I am going to throw the junk away. Learning new things can be another complete waste of time. I know that now. I was going to learn new things last year, but who was I kidding? That was the year I was going to learn to speak Canadian, eh? How was I to know they have more than 50 different words for ice skating? There are over 100 different words for cheese. Then I had to watch an entire hockey season to figure out what

a hat trick was. Once I learned Canadian, I found out that ignorance really is bliss. Learning new things can be a dead-end road to nowhere since the more you learn, the more you figure out how much you don’t know. It’s much better to figure out the stuff you already know. For example, this year I am going to try to learn English. Helping others should be at the top of everyone’s New Year’s resolution list, but this is not a perfect world. Many people are beyond help or they won’t let you help them help themselves. Not to mention it is hard to help others if you can’t help yourself. I know that now. I have spent a good part of my life helping others by translating the fishing laws into English. Then I get blamed. It’s a kill


Who’s to blame? In the Peninsula Voices column of Dec. 29, a writer attempts to distract us from the failed policies of President Barack Obama by blaming current economic problems on former President George W. Bush. Note that this writer didn’t try to refute Cal Thomas’ claims that President Obama’s economic polices have failed, but resorts to the old propaganda lie that “Bush Did It,” to direct our attention away from the miserable performance of the current administration. Those who want to understand the truth about the causes of the mortgage market implosion and resultant economic problems, should read the book Reckless Endangerment written by New York Times reporter Gretchen Morgenson. The Times is no friend of President Bush or Republicans in general, yet this author places the preponderance of blame on the Democrats, government sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie

Mac and unscrupulous mortgage bankers. It started with Democrat President Clinton in the 1990s, pushing his “Homeownership Strategy.” This strategy made home loans available, independent of the properties’ worth or the owner’s ability to make

payments on the home loan. This policy was backed by most all Democrats, including those in key positions, like Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and Maxine Waters, who were very loud supporters of subprime lending. When the Democrats took control of both the US

Senate and House in the election of 2006, they refused to do anything about these dangerous lending practices. Now, the Democrats who got us into this mess are the ones blaming everyone else! Eugene Farr, Port Townsend

the messenger thing. I’ve helped tourists (they’re people, too) catch steelhead. Once they do, they want to catch another and another steelhead that’s bigger than the last one, until the day they do. Then they realize when they catch that trophy steelhead of a lifetime that they have nothing left to live for. There you have it, pried fresh from the bottom of my tortured soul to provide a shining beacon to the rest of humanity — my list of New Year’s resolutions. Help yourself, figure it out and throw the junk away.

Disagreement in intensive care PATIENTS ADMITTED TO hospital intensive care units need high-tech, high-cost, lifesaving care. But the professionals who tend to them may not always agree with the decisions regarding that care. A study conducted in Europe and Israel was completed to assess how health-care workers viewed the “appropriateness” of care in ICUs. Inappropriate care was defined as care that clashes with the health-care professional’s beliefs or professional knowledge. Researchers surveyed 1,651 doctors and nurses. One-quarter of the nurses said they perceived some inappropriate care in at least one patient as did 32 percent of the doctors. Their specific complaints most often involved disproportionate care. For example, many thought care was excessive while a smaller number cited cases where care was insufficient. And 38 percent of the respondents said they felt other patients would benefit more from ICU care than the present patient. “The main reason for perceived inappropriateness of care is a mismatch between the level of care and the expected patient outcome, usually in the direction of perceived excess intensity of care,” the researchers said. While the study, published Tuesday, was performed in other countries, the strong feelings about inappropriate care “may in fact be higher in the United States, where multiple attending physicians and consultants may be involved in care decisions,” said the author of a commentary accompanying the study, Dr. Scott D. Halpern of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. Peninsula Daily News news sources

Free-falling into 2012 in confidence I HAD NO idea the first week of January would arrive so fast, but it’s true. It’s like having someone slap you across the face and say, “Ha! And you thought you had plenty of time!” What can I do? There’s no going back. “Oh, don’t give me that,” I’ll say. “You knew your deadline was New Year’s Day, that you’d have to come up with a story on the very morning your head feels like cotton, even if the word ‘cotton’ drops right off the cliff of cliche.” All because on New Year’s Eve, first I fell in love with a chilled gimlet (made with fresh lime, plenty of vitamin C) and then with the music in the background, managing, by gimlet No. 2, to dance so long and hard as to sufficiently ruin a perfectly good pair of shoes just to prove to myself that I really can still dance until the wee hours of the

FROM A WRITER’S NOTEBOOK morning. By gimlet Sanelli No. 3, I took a sharp right turn off the route of appropriate adult behavior before slipping, thanks to gimlet No. 4, over the precipice of matureness altogether, landing on my butt on the dance floor. It was the most fun I’ve had in years. Honestly, if not one new embarrassing story ever popped into mind again, I could write for days just by reliving this one. My legs didn’t fly up in the air so my panties showed or any-

thing. It was a pretty graceful landing, all in all, because I figured if I was going to do something as wrong as free-falling into the New Year, I would let my dance training kick in and do it right. Wait! There is one other story that was nearly as startling as my 2011 dance-floor topple. It really threw me. A friend told me, quite out of the blue, that she used to be a man. It’s not like I thought much about her sex life before. Boy, do I ever now. Still, for all intents and purposes, a person’s sexual preference, to me, has never been even close to being the most interesting thing about them. Even after a sex change, she still better never lie to me, come on to my husband, be late one too many times or need to borrow money.

In any case, she used to be a man and that’s that. Nothing about our friendship really changed. She’s still someone I’d call for an honest opinion. She is interested. She wants to know. Besides, there are a few secrets to everyone’s story — hers, mine, yours, no matter what. Or maybe I’m too easily distracted. I don’t know. I do know that when I walk into the kitchen to pour myself another cup of coffee, I don’t want to stand at the counter too long staring at my mother’s floral pasta bowl, I can tell you that. It’s mine now, the bowl, which means it’s propped up in a frame stand and never used. But when I look at it, I mean really look at it, I have to be sure I have the heart for being swept back into the seventies. Perhaps I was headed there

anyway. Because — and I’m just going to be candid — I was pretty cool in the ’70s. In my yearbook, there’s a photo of me sitting on top of my locker flashing a peace sign. My first sit-in. Little has changed. Peace is what I long for. I don’t even know why I thought of that just now, but writing it has been nearly as much fun as last night, confiding in you with no hesitation, like people do when they’ve had a few.

Kennewick man wins state sales tax fight Revenue said man got too good of a deal BY JOHN TRUMBO TRI-CITY HERALD

KENNWICK — Fred Buck of Kennewick is ending the year with a victory over the state’s revenue agents. Buck, who purchased a used car for his son to drive while away at college, challenged a law that allows state agents to charge a sales tax on what they say a car is worth, even if the purchase price was much less, the Tri-City Herald reported in Sunday’s newspaper. Buck claims he shouldn’t be forced to pay tax on more than he spent. “It makes no sense,” said Buck, whose $3,000 purchase of a 6-year-old Suzuki Forenza with 65,000 miles on it from a private party has him caught in a $270 squabble with Washington’s Department of Revenue.

know that,” Gowrylow said. The Legislature passed a law years ago that allows the state to determine fair market values on motor vehicles. Any private-party sale is subject to review to determine its accuracy, Gowrylow explained. “Getting a good deal in buying a car at half price doesn’t mean you will pay only half taxes. It’s like Ronald Reagan said, ‘Trust and verify,’” he added. Buck is particularly rankled because he bought the car so his son would have a vehicle to use in Oregon while attending college there, not for use in Washington.

Integrity’s worth

Buck also is offended that the state won’t accept his truthful, sworn declaration on the price he paid. “After agreeing on a price, the owner asked me how much I wanted him to put down that we paid. I told him I was a Christian, and if a Christian won’t tell the truth, who will?” Buck said. “My integrity is worth Car’s true worth more than a couple hundred bucks,” Buck said. Buck paid cash for the Honesty didn’t impress car and reported that revenue agent Ashley Supry amount on the sale, as in Olympia, however. required to the state, but Revenue officials said he got too good of a deal and Said owed tax on $6,000 the car’s true worth is Supry wrote to Buck’s $6,150. son, the registered owner of That is why the state the Suzuki, saying he wanted another $270, said should have paid tax on Michael Gowrylow, spokes- $6,000 at the time the car man for the Department of was licensed, so another Revenue. $270 was owed. “There is a significant “He very well may have paid $3,000 for it, but difference between the there’s no way the state can average retail value for

your vehicle and the taxed value,” she wrote, advising Buck to get an appraisal on the Suzuki by a registered car dealer. Buck did just that, and now has a signed appraisal on the Suzuki for $2,000, which is based on the fact the car had been in a wreck. It was in good mechanical condition, but not in good enough shape with the paint and body work to deserve a higher value. “So now that I have proof that I paid too much for the car, I want the state to refund me $100 for the overpayment of tax I made,” Buck said. Buck also noted that online research on values of the Suzuki model run from $2,500 to $3,500, which is within the range he paid. Gowrylow said Buck’s complaint about the state over-valuing a used car purchase is the first he has heard in at least 10 years.

Law allows review Supry told the Herald the law that allows state reviews of private vehicle purchases is difficult to enforce. “The tax gets applied to things that have paper trails,” she said. That includes cars, trucks and even furniture and computers. Buck said the appraisal by a registered car dealer fixed the problem. Supry called Buck last week and said everything was satisfactory, and no additional tax was due by Dec. 28, the deadline set by the state.

PA â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sesquicentennial babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; a celebrity Infant, family to be part of cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebrations BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Melania Christine Burke may have been in town for only a day, but she is an instant hit in Port Angeles. Melania was the first Port Angeles baby born in 2012, and as Port Angelesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;sesquicentennial baby,â&#x20AC;? will be feted all year, said Cherie Kidd, sesquicentennial committee member and Port Angeles City Council member. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She will be our celebrity baby,â&#x20AC;? Kidd said Tuesday.

Melania was born to Rebecca and James Burke of Port Angeles at 10 p.m. Monday at the Olympic Medical Center. The Burkes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who have two other children, Maria, 4 and Nicholas, 22 months â&#x20AC;&#x201D; began to get an idea that their baby had special significance Monday night, when the hospital staff mentioned that she was the first Port Angeles baby of the year. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t learn that she was considered a celebrity as the sesquicentennial baby until Tuesday morning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty special that we live in a community that thinks of things like this,â&#x20AC;? Rebecca said.

Kidd presented the Burkes with a $150 savings bond as well as gift certificates and gift baskets from Port Angeles businesses. Melania and her parents will be invited to take part in many of the events that will take place in 2012, including the Fourth of July parade, Kidd said.

The committee is working to introduce a sesquicentennial postmark for mail sent from the Port Angeles post office in 2012, Kidd said. She added that a time capsule will be buried at the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sesquicentennial celebration, with plans to open it in 2062. The 2012 Heritage Festival will be part of the sesquicentennial celebration, said Kathy Monds of the Clallam County Historical Society.

Seeing light at end of tunnel Hawks notice progress despite 7-9 season mark BY TIM BOOTH

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Wrap


RENTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Even though he just concluded his fifth NFL season, Marshawn Lynch said he grew up and became a pro in 2011. He took care of himself off the field. Little things like extra stretching, eating a bit better â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sans the Skittles that are always nearby â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and a willingness to be coached that might not have been there in the past. The same could be said about much of the Seattle Seahawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; youth-based roster, and is the big reason why even after another losing season there is some optimism about Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The direction that the team is going in, you can continue to see week in guys continuing to get better, following the motto of the program, just competing,â&#x20AC;? Lynch said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You continue to see that.â&#x20AC;? Seattle dropped its final two games of the regular season to finish 7-9 after losing 23-20 to Arizona in overtime on Sunday. But before the season-ending losses to San Francisco and the Cardinals, the Seahawks ran off five wins in six games to climb back into the NFC playoff picture after a dismal 2-6 start. The Seahawks went from midseason jokes to late-season contenders thanks to the legs of Lynch and a stout young defense. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s giving promise to what

might lie ahead. An even stronger belief in what the Seahawks are trying to accomplish than a year ago, when Seattle finished with a 7-9 record, an NFC West championship and a first-round playoff upset of New Orleans. The massive overhaul of the Seahawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roster that coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider engineered is mostly complete, with only a few spots left to solidify. Of course, the biggest piece is at quarterback, where there remain questions if Tarvaris Jackson is the best option for the Seahawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hopeful future. Jackson started the most games of his NFL career this season and did it playing through an injured chest muscle that had docTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS tors initially believing his season Seattle quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, looking to pass against San Francisco on Dec. 24, was over.

is the Seahawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; biggest question mark going into the offseason.

Only 14 touchdowns He threw for 3,091 yards, 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Jackson didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do much spectacular, instead playing within a system that changed throughout the season and eventually made Jackson a complementary piece to Lynch. But for all his capable management, Jackson couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find a way to win a close game when trailing

in the fourth quarter. All three of Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s losses in the final six weeks were opportunities for Jackson to lead a winning fourth-quarter drive. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. On Monday, Jackson seemed settled with the idea Seattle might bring in a quarterback either through the draft or in free agency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what our motto is â&#x20AC;&#x201D; competing,â&#x20AC;? Jackson said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I get an opportunity Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fine, but if not Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always going to be professional about the situation. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the best teammate I can be. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been through different situations close to that, so I know how to handle the situation. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a problem.â&#x20AC;? At midseason when Seattle was struggling at 2-6, there were questions whether Carrollâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan

was the right answer. The Seahawks were lost offensively and on their way to a topfive draft pick. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when Seattle abandoned its gimmicks and rode the legs of Lynch, who quickly became the face of a franchise known more for finesse than brutish strength through much of the past decade.

Disco Bay fun Discovery Bay Golf Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Randy White checked in with information on the Port Townsend courseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s twofer specials and its Winter Eclectic contest. Two golfers can play all day with a cart for $48, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays players can get two rounds of golf for the price of one regular round. The clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Winter Eclectic started on New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day and will continue to March 31. A $20 entry fee will get you into the game. Eclectics work this way: Each golfer plays X number of rounds, and each golfer compares his scores on each hole per round. The lowest score made on each hole is recorded, producing an 18-hole score.

Football uncertainty looms at Penn State THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DALLAS — Penn State interim coach Tom Bradley planned to hit the recruiting trail this week upon returning from a lost trip to Texas knowing full well his itinerary may change at any minute. Nearly two months after Joe Paterno was fired, the school still hasn’t settled on a permanent replacement.

“I’m going to work until the very end until they tell me I’m no longer needed,” Bradley said. “That’s what Penn State is paying me to do and what is in my heart that I am going to do. Because I love this university and I love the people.” Bradley and most of the rest of the Penn State contingent in Dallas were scheduled to return to Happy Valley on Tuesday, a day

following a 30-14 loss to No. 20 Houston at the TicketCity Bowl in Dallas. The dispiriting defeat capped a tumultuous two months that began with child sex abuse charges against retired assistant coach Jerry Sandusky and the ouster of Paterno in the scandal’s aftermath. Receivers coach Mike McQueary, a key witness in the

state attorney general’s case against Sandusky, is also on administrative leave. Most of the rest of the staff, including Bradley, have worked with Paterno for years — if not decades. Bradley and defensive line coach Larry Johnson are among the candidates who have been interviewed in a search that could end in the next few weeks.

Mike Harrison, the agent for San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman, said Monday that Roman interviewed in November and is on the “short list” for the job. Acting athletic director David Joyner said Sunday there was no one who could be classified as a leading candidate for the position in what the school has described as a “deliberate search.”

Hawks: A positive outlook Carman: Shoots age CONTINUED FROM B1 Lynch rattled off 100-yard games in six of the final nine to close the season and ran for at least 80 yards in eight of the nine. His franchise record streak of a touchdown in 11 straight games, greeted with a shower of candy from the fans at home as the season progressed, finally came to an end Sunday against Arizona. His 1,204 yards and 12 touchdowns were career bests and also provided Seattle with an identity. “This team took a turn from last year,” fullback Michael Robinson said. “It went from the coaches pretty much directing us to this year I think we took ownership and this became our team. “That’s what you like to see at this level. Nothing else can motivate you like your peers.” It could be short-lived, however. Lynch is one of five key unrestricted free agents the Seahawks need to make decisions about.

Along with Lynch, Robinson, defensive end Red Bryant and linebackers Leroy Hill and David Hawthorne all could walk. All five expressed their desire to stay on Monday, although Bryant was blunt about having no interest in seeing the free market.

Special role for Bryant They all have strong ties to staying: Hill was given a secondchance after off-field problems; Hawthorne was an undrafted free agent Seattle nabbed; Bryant was moved to a position specially created for him on the defensive line and thrived; and Robinson was plucked off waivers from San Francisco and became a team captain. Yet Lynch remains the toughest to gauge. The off-field problems that hung over his time in Buffalo subsided when he arrived in Seattle and he’s coming off the finest season of his career.

At age 25 this is likely Lynch’s best shot at a big payday. “Hopefully I don’t have to. Hopefully I can get taken care of where I’m at,” Lynch said of possibly leaving Seattle. “But if that’s the case, then that would be the next step, to see what it would be.” Defensively, the Seahawks finished the year ranked ninth overall with a unit that featured Pro Bowl starter Earl Thomas at safety and two other Pro Bowl alternates in the secondary in cornerback Brandon Browner and safety Kam Chancellor. While the secondary got the notoriety, Seattle was nearly as good at stopping the run, both ranking in the top half of the league. “What coach Carroll’s been able to do for us, talent-wise, to get the talent to where it is on offense and defense, I know this football team is heading in the right direction,” Bryant said.

Online gambling fight now about when, who

$ Briefly . . . Purchase sets shield for wildlife

Justice opinion takes the ‘if’ out of the equation BY OSKAR GARCIA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAS VEGAS — The fight to fully legalize online gambling in the U.S. is now less about whether Americans will be able to play and more about who will bring the action to them — and when. A recent U.S. Justice Department opinion opened the door for cash-strapped states and their lotteries to bring online gambling to their residents, as long as it does not involve sports betting. The DOJ memo also enflamed a battle within the industry over how to legalize online gambling that once generated an estimated $6 billion yearly just from poker: Should each state have its own system, or should there be a nationwide law? While the opinion sent gambling stocks rising, many players who’ve been shut out from top online poker sites since April just want games to restart and don’t care who profits. “I don’t like this legal limbo. Is it legal, or is it illegal?” said writer Brian Boyko, who plays poker as a hobby. Boyko of Austin, Texas, has been using a small offshore site since executives and others at PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and Absolute Poker were accused of illegally getting banks to process gambling funds. Most of the U.S. games disappeared after the indictments.

One lawmaker in New Jersey is pushing to make online gambling legal, citing the DOJ memo. State Sen. Raymond Lesniak said he’ll try to get a bill to Gov. Chris Christie’s desk by next week. “We can be the Silicon Valley of Internet gaming,” he said. “It’s the wave of the future.”

Transactions forbidden Online poker boomed in the U.S. over the last decade, but a 2006 law made it illegal to run most online gambling businesses by forbidding financial institutions from processing transactions related to illegal online gambling. The law, however, didn’t clearly specify what kinds of gambling were illegal. Some forms of gambling, like fantasy sports and horse racing, got explicit carveouts, while many poker games kept going online as some operators got differing legal opinions about whether the Wire Act of 1961 applied to them. Since then, poker proponents have argued that the game is different from other casino games like blackjack or slots because it involves significantly more skill. Even casino companies — which make far more money from luck-based games than poker — began pushing for poker-only legislation under the assumption that poker regulations would be easier for lawmakers to stomach than other games.

Meanwhile, New York and Illinois officials asked the DOJ in 2010 whether the Wire Act or the 2006 law prevented them from selling lottery tickets online to adults within their states. Last week, the DOJ answered: The Wire Act only prevents players from wagering on sports outcomes — other bets are OK.

Correct, confusing The commercial casino industry’s top lobbying group in Washington, D.C., believes the DOJ’s interpretation of the Wire Act was correct but added more confusion than solutions. “There’s probably some staffers at work on (Capitol Hill) now taking a real hard look at this as they figure to bring some sanity,” said Frank Fahrenkopf, chief executive of the American Gaming Association. Fahrenkopf said his group will keep pushing Congress for online poker legislation that establishes baseline rules for Internet poker operators. Within the gambling world — which includes lotteries, private and publiclytraded companies, Native American tribes, software manufacturers, offshore sites and others — there are differing visions for ideal online gambling laws. Mark Hichar, an outside lawyer for the company that runs the Texas lottery, said the memo removes uncertainty and will prompt lot-

teries to begin running as many different kinds of games as are allowable under state laws. “This helps lotteries, which are . . . determined to remain relevant and to attract a new generation of players,” said Hichar, who represents Rhode Islandbased GTECH Corp. Lotteries have generally opposed federal legislation, pushing for states to retain control of gambling laws. I. Nelson Rose, a gambling law expert, said the opinion’s timing and deference to states could mean trouble for commercial casinos that want an inside track on running licensed online gambling. “They’re going to have problems because when the states legalize, their natural inclination is to give it to the locals,” said Rose, who regularly writes about online gambling developments at his blog, “Gambling and The Law.” And that, he said, is the big question: Who’s going to get the license? “If you’re a Nevada casino operator, you don’t want to be competing in more than 50 separate jurisdictions against connected, politically powerful operators,” Rose said. Rose said new federal laws are a long shot in 2012, while states could choose to enter into compacts with other states to pool players, making games more lucrative.

Starbucks tabs up in some areas THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Starbucks said Tuesday it is raising some prices regionally as it faces rising ingredient costs. The Seattle coffee chain is raising prices about 1 percent in the Northeast and Sunbelt regions. Starbucks wouldn’t disclose all of the states its raising prices, but the regions include New York; Washington, D.C.; and most Southern states. They exclude California

and Florida. Other cities where it will raise prices include Boston, Atlanta, Dallas and Albuquerque, N.M. The price for a “tall” coffee will go up 10 cents in the regions, and the chain will raise prices on about six other beverages. But beverages that are “grande,” the next size up, won’t change. Starbucks spokesman Jim Olson said the prices reflect competition in certain markets and higher

costs for coffee, fuel and other commodities. The last across-theboard price increase was in 2007. Starbucks has been a standout among its peers in the tough global economy because consumers have returned to small luxuries like lattes. But it is facing chal-

lenges ranging from the drag of a weak economy on its customers to higher costs. It has expanded overseas, increased the number of products it offers, expanded its loyalty program and upped its presence in grocery stores and other retailers to help drive growth.

TACOMA — An 82-acre peninsula in Pierce County has been purchased for protection as a wildlife preserve. The Jacob’s Point property on the south side of Anderson Island on Oro Bay had once been targeted for a Christian youth camp. Now, the Anderson Island Park and Recreation District plans to develop a trail, a stop for kayaks and canoes, interpretive signs and viewpoints on the property. The property includes one mile of unaltered shoreline along Oro Bay, mature forested uplands and wetlands, and views of Puget Sound and Mount Rainier. It provides habitat for endangered chinook, chum and pink salmon.

Fun ’n’ Advice






DEAR ABBY: My long-distance boyfriend, “Wayne,” moved here two years ago to take a job working for my twin sister “Kim’s” mentor. After five months on the job, Wayne was terminated and was replaced by — my sister! To say there are hurt feelings is an understatement. Wayne and I were unaware that Kim had been having an affair with this much-older married father of two. He has now left his wife and kids and is living with my sister. Kim is enjoying her job as his assistant and reaping all the benefits of his longestablished business. I’m devastated by the betrayal. It frustrates me that after months of deception, my twin is benefiting from a massive indiscretion that ended a marriage and destroyed a family. We were always close, but I don’t want to include her lover in any upcoming events in my life. She says they’re a “package deal.” How do I move past this — or should I? Deceived by My Evil Twin

Dear Near and Far: You and Kurt appear to be compatible on many levels, but you must accept that as wonderful a person as he is, he cannot give you the romantic love you’re looking for. He isn’t “wired” that way. Wishing, hoping and dreaming won’t change that — but it will waste your time and prevent you from looking for eligible men. You need to put the brakes on this friendship until you have regained your balance and/or have met someone else. And tell Kurt why, so his feelings won’t be hurt. I’m betting it won’t be the first time he’s heard it. Dear Abby: Is a grandmother being disrespectful when she purposely continues to misspell her 12-year-old grandson’s name on cards and gifts?

Dear Deceived: I’m not sure what “upcoming events in your life” you’re referring to, but if they include Wayne, his feelings should also be taken into consideration. How angry and resentful will he feel if he’s forced to interact with the man who fired him so he could be replaced by your sister? I can’t decide for you how you will work this out, but I will offer this advice: For the present, make no hard and fast decisions. This could play out in any number of ways. Her boss could marry her, or he could return to his wife and family. Wait and see what the future brings. It’s often full of surprises.
