times in the preceding year, compared with 4.1 percent of responding students statewide. The survey was sponsored by the state Department of Health, the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, the Department of Social and Health Services, the Department of Commerce, the Family Policy Council and the Liquor Control Board. It included 123 of 212 Jefferson County 10th-

Sixties icon to play benefit gig Barry McGuireâ€™s Chimacum concert will raise funds for PT winter shelter â€˜The Eastern world, it is exploding; violence flaring, bullets loadingâ€™ â€” and it says that â€˜a handful of senators canâ€™t pass legislation.â€™ â€œThey still canâ€™t pass legislation.â€?

CHIMACUM â€” The singer of one of the 1960sâ€™ most poignant protest anthems is headlining a benefit that is intended to subsidize the operation of the Port Townsend Winter Shelter. â€œTrippinâ€™ the â€™60s,â€? featuring Barry McGuire and ex-Byrds member John York, will take place at 7 p.m. Saturday in the Chimacum High School auditorium, 91 West Valley Road. â€œI canâ€™t think of a more perfect connection than this show and Port Townsend,â€? said Skip Cadorette, who is organizing the event. â€œAnd the money we raise will go to running the winter shelter next year.â€? This is the second performance by McGuire and York in the area. In 2009, they appeared at a benefit for the same cause that raised $6,000.
Returned to repertoire McGuire became a born-again Christian in the 1970s and refused to perform his signature song for several years but has resumed its performance, often with updated lyrics. McGuireâ€™s passion for social justice continues. He characterizes modern times as â€œthe dawn of desolationâ€? and has harsh words for President Barack Obama. But he has distanced himself from the attitudes and behavior of his youth. â€œWe were looking for freedom, but freedom without rules will kill you,â€? McGuire said. â€œBack then, we were like a bunch of puppies poured out on a kitchen floor out of a cardboard box, running around spilling the milk, getting into the trash, getting under the sink. â€œWe were eating stuff that was killing us. We didnâ€™t know,â€? he said. TURN TO MCGUIRE/A7

Helping the shelter Cadorette hopes this yearâ€™s event will raise $10,000 toward the operation of the shelter during the 2013-2014 season. The shelter, located in the basement of the American Legion
still resonates today as it did on the Hit Parade in 1965. â€œIt was just a bunch of newspaper headlines set to a folk melody,â€? McGuire said of the P.F.
at 209 Monroe St., closed for the season last Friday. McGuire is best-known for â€œEve of Destruction,â€? the prototypical protest song that he feels
Sloan-written anthem. â€œIt wasnâ€™t anything that people didnâ€™t know. â€œWhen we sing it today, it is more valid than it was in 1965:
Tribal elder Smith, 95, dies Library measure advances in PT
Lower Elwha Sâ€™Klallam member will be remembered for support of Native causes BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Adeline Smith, the Lower Elwha Klallam tribal elder who played key roles in preserving the site of Tse-whit-zen village, the Elwha River dam removals and documenting the Klallam language, has died. Smith, who turned 95 last Friday, died Tuesday morning in Tacoma, where she was staying with family members, Lower Elwha Klallam Tribal Chairwoman Frances Charles said Tuesday afternoon. Smith celebrated her 95th birthday with family members and other members of the tribe, Charles said. No memorial service date has been announced.
Born March 15, 1918, Smith grew up in the Port Angeles area, watching the decline in salmon runs on the Elwha River and the disappearance of Tse-whit-zen village on the Port Angeles Harbor waterfront. In the early 21st century, she witnessed the preservation of the Tsewhit-sen site after a state dry-dock construction project to build floatingbridge pontoons was halted. And she celebrated with tribal members at the September 2011 ceremonies to begin the removal of the two Elwha River dams. Once the reservoir behind the lower Elwha Dam was drained, she witnessed the tribeâ€™s ceremonial creation site that had been inundated since Lake Aldwell was created just before she was born.

PORT TOWNSEND â€” The process to determine a strategy for the renovation of the Port Townsend Library as a prelude to putting the measure on the August ballot has been put in place by the City Council. A proposed bond issue would raise up to $3 million and support the final phase of the libraryâ€™s expansion â€” including the replacement of the current single-level, 3,625-squarefoot annex with a threestory, 14,420-square-foot structure, which is uncertain because of a fundrais-
ing shortfall. Mayor David King, Deputy Mayor Kris Nelson and council members Deborah Stinson, Michelle Sandoval and Mark Welch voted in favor of approving the plan, while council member Robert Gray was opposed. Council member Catharine Robinson was absent at Monday nightâ€™s City Council meeting. Over the next month, the city and the library foundation will decide whether the project should proceed as planned or be revised to accommodate diminished resources.

Pair accused of plot to kill singer Stone LONDON PROSECUTORS SAID Monday two men accused of plotting to rob and kill soul singer Joss Stone planned to decapitate her, then dump her body in a river. The suspects, Junior Bradshaw and Kevin Liverpool, were arrested in June 2011 Stone close to the singer’s house after suspicious neighbors reported them to police. They never reached her house. Opening the case at Exeter Crown Court, prosecutor Simon Morgan told the jury that the pair, ages 32 and 35, set off from their home in Manchester, England, with a samurai sword, knives, a hammer, black bags and gloves for Stone’s house in Devon. The men were allegedly part of a gang that hatched the plot, but other members could not be traced. Morgan said handwritten notes found in the sus-
pects’ car made reference to “decapitate,” another read “Jocelyn RIP,” and a further note said: “Once Jocelyn’s dead . . . find a river to dump her.” The motive for the plot wasn’t clear, but Morgan said the men may have targeted Stone for her money or because they disliked her links with the royal family. The notes indicated that the pair disapproved of Stone being invited to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011, Morgan said. The defendants denied all charges.

Abuse suit filed The former voice of the “Sesame Street” character Elmo is being sued by a man who claims the entertainer lured him into drugfueled sex when he was 16. Sheldon Stephens, who’s now 24, said he met Kevin Clash at a networking event. He said Clash he was brought by limousine from Pennsylvania to a New York apartment. There, Clash allegedly smoked crystal meth while giving the teenager another recreational drug. Stephens first made the allegations last year but recanted after failed efforts to reach a settlement. He renewed the accusations in a lawsuit filed Monday in federal court in Pennsylvania. Clash’s attorney, Michael Berger, said his client denies any wrongdoing. He said Stephens already admitted he had an adult consensual relationship with Clash. Three other men also are suing Clash, alleging underage sex.

JAMES BARRETT, 86, a vintner whose superb wines boosted the international reputation of the California wine industry, has died in San Francisco. Mr. Barrett died Thursday, according to a statement from the Chateau Montelena Winery he refurbished in 1972. A cause of death was not given. Mr. Barrett’s most noted winemaking achievement was a 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay that beat the French in a blind tasting called the Judgment of Paris in 1976. It was a watershed moment for California’s wine industry, helping propel it into the powerhouse it is today. Before the tasting, Napa Valley wines were largely ignored by Europeans. “It was just a bombshell,” Mr. Barrett told The Associated Press in 2003 during an event marking the 30-year anniversary of the wine. The story of Mr. Barrett’s achievement and the disruption it caused with wine critics was told in the 2008 movie “Bottle Shock.”
has died. The brewery and the funeral home handling arrangements confirmed that Mr. Roarty died Saturday from a heart attack suffered a day earlier at his home in the St. Louis suburb of Town and Country. Mr. Roarty spent 43 years at Anheuser-Busch and was vice president of marketing from 1977 to 1990, retiring as executive vice president in 1994. During his tenure, the company’s share of the U.S. market more than doubled, to 43 percent. He oversaw campaigns such as Budweiser’s “This Bud’s for You,” Busch Beer’s “Head for the Mountains,” Michelob’s “Weekends Were Made for Michelob” and Bud Light’s “Gimme a Light.”
_________ BOBBIE SMITH, 76, a former lead singer of the soul music group “The Spinners,” has died in Orlando, Fla. A statement released Monday by the manager of the rhythm and blues group said Mr. Smith passed away Saturday morning due to complications from pneumonia and influenza. The statement said he had been diagnosed with lung cancer in November. Mr. Smith was the group’s original lead singer and was the voice on their
first hit “That’s What Girls Are Made For.” Also called the Detroit Spinners, the group earned nearly a dozen gold records and a half-dozen Grammy award nominations. The group’s biggest hits in the 1970s included “I’ll Be Around,” “Could It Be I’m Falling in Love” and “Games People Play.”

A3 Briefly: Nation Police: 9-1-1 call averted disaster at Fla. university ORLANDO, Fla. — A University of Central Florida student who pulled a dorm fire alarm in the middle of the night had a more sinister plan than sending students scurrying out into the night, authorities said. Campus police said Monday that 30-year-old James Oliver Seevakumaran — who shot himself in the head as officers Seevakumaran arrived — was armed with two guns, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, a backpack filled with explosives and a plan to attack students as they fled the dorm where he lived. His plans were thrown off by campus police officers’ quick response to the fire alarm and a 9-1-1 call from Seevakumaran’s roommate, who hid in a bathroom after Seevakumaran pointed a gun at him, UCF Police Chief Richard Beary said. “It could have been a very bad day here for everybody,” Beary said. A school spokesman said Seevakumaran was in the process of being evicted from the dormitory because he hadn’t enrolled for the current semester.
Cigarette label ruling RICHMOND, Va. — The U.S. government won’t appeal a court decision blocking it from requiring tobacco companies to put large graphic health warnings on cigarette packages. In a letter obtained by The Associated Press, Attorney General Eric Holder said the Food and Drug Administration will go back to the drawing board and propose new labels. A judge ruled last year that the requirement violated First Amendment free speech protections. An appeals court upheld that ruling. Some large tobacco companies sued to block the mandate to include warnings depicting the dangers of smoking.
SEC nomination WASHINGTON — A Senate panel approved Mary Jo White’s nomination to lead the Securities and Exchange Commission and sent it along for a final vote. The Senate Banking Committee approved White’s nomination on a 21-1 vote. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, was the only member to object. White is expected to be confirmed by the full Senate and become the first former prosecutor to lead the agency that oversees Wall Street. The panel also advanced Richard Cordray’s nod to continue as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Republican members, who have opposed the newly created agency, voted no.

Assault weapons ban omitted from gun bill Sen. Feinstein: ‘Tried my best’ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has decided that a proposed assault weapons ban won’t be part of a gun control bill the Senate plans to debate next month, the sponsor of the ban said Tuesday, a decision that means the ban stands little chance of survival. Instead, Sen. Dianne Feinstein said she will offer her ban on the firearms as an amendment. Feinstein is all but certain to need 60 votes from the 100-member
Senate to prevail, but she faces solid Republican opposition and likely defections from some moderate Democrats. “I very much regret it,” Fein- Feinstein stein, D-Calif., told reporters of Reid’s decision. “I tried my best.” Feinstein, an author of the 1994 assault weapons ban that expired after a decade, said Reid, D-Nev., told her of the decision Monday. There are 53 Democrats in the Senate, plus two independents who usually vote with them. An assault-type weapon was
used in the December massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., that revived gun control as a top issue in Washington. Banning those firearms was among the proposals President Barack Obama made in January in response to those slayings.
Most controversial The assault weapons ban was the most controversial of the proposals to restrict guns that have been advanced by Obama and Senate Democrats. Because of that, it had been expected that the measure would be left out of the initial package, with Democrats hoping the Senate could amass the strongest possible vote for the overall legislation.

WEARING A T-SHIRT with “killer” scrawled across it, a teenager cursed and gestured obscenely as he was given three life sentences Tuesday for shooting to death three students in an Ohio high school cafeteria. T.J. Lane, 18, had pleaded guilty last month to shooting at students in February 2012 at Chardon High School, east of Cleveland. Lane was defiant during the sentencing, smirking throughout. Prosecutors said Lane took a pistol and a knife to the school and fired in the cafeteria. Daniel Parmertor and Demetrius Hewlin, both 16, and Russell King Jr., 17, were killed.
THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT said Tuesday it supports rewriting 26-yearold legislation that has allowed law enforcement to read a person’s emails without a search warrant so long as the email is older than six months or already opened. The law has long been criticized by privacy advocates as a loophole when it comes to protecting Americans from government snooping. “There is no principled basis to treat email less than 180 days old differently than email more than 180 days old,” Elana Tyrangiel, acting assistant attorney general in the Office of Legal Policy, told a House Judiciary subcommittee.

But when he had the world’s leadership sitting before him on the steps of St. Peter’s Basilica, Francis made his point clear. “Please,” he told them. “Let us be protectors, protectors of God’s plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another and of the environment.”

Shuttered PA school for sale BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Fairview Elementary School is officially for sale, and prospective buyers can make an offer anytime, Port Angeles School District officials said. The School Board held the first of two public hearings necessary to sell the campus, which sits on 9.48 acres at 166 Lake Farm Road east of Port Angeles. An appraisal conducted in January placed a value of $904,000 on the school, said schools Superintendent Jane Pryne. â€œThe sale price must be no less than 90 percent of the appraised value, according to state law,â€? Pryne said.
Total sum declines The school previously was appraised in 2010 for $1,055,000. The January appraisal notes an obvious decline in the condition of the property from the 2010 appraisal.
Because of state law, the district cannot consider any offers it gets until 45 days after Mondayâ€™s meeting. The second hearing will take place after April 25, to consider any offers the district receives on the property. â€œThe state is extremely slow in surplusing property,â€? School Board President Lonnie Linn said. Pryne said the district would not consider any lease or lease-to-own offers. â€œThe district is not interested in being landlords,â€? she said. Any sale of the property is unlikely to close before summer, she said. At least two private schools in the area have shown interest in the property and building: Five Acre School, currently located in Dungeness, and Olympic Christian School, currently split into two locations east and south of Port Angeles. Coincidentally, Olympic Christianâ€™s main kindergarten-through-eighth-grade operation is in the original
Fairview School at Oâ€™Brien Road and U.S. Highway 101 that was replaced by the Lake Farm Road campus now up for sale. No one at the hearing spoke in favor of or against the sale. Two representatives from Olympic Christian School were present to inquire about the school buildingâ€™s historic electrical costs and lead paint or asbestos issues that the school may have.
Closed in 2007 The newer Fairview was closed in 2007 because of declining enrollment. The main building was constructed in the 1960s and upgraded in 1973 and 1978. The School Board decided to put the property on the market in 2012 to help fund the replacement of several aging schools in the district. Prospective buyers were referred to Nolan Duce, district supervisor of facilities,
for questions regarding the physical condition and maintenance history of the buildings and property, and financial questions were referred to Kelly Pearson, director of finance.
