PT paper mill’s waste permit denied Company says it will appeal county health officer’s ruling BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — Port Townsend Paper Corp. said it will appeal a decision by the Jefferson County health officer for a new permit for its on-site landfill. Dr. Tom Locke, health officer for Jefferson County as well as Clallam County, issued his find-

ing Monday afternoon, taking into account material that was presented during an all-day hearing Nov. 28. The company will appeal his decision to the Pollution Controls Hearing Board, according to company spokesperson Kevin Scott. At issue is whether Port Townsend Paper’s mill should be granted an inert waste permit or

be required to attain a morestringent limited-use permit.

First denial For its annual permit renewal in Locke S e p t e m b e r, the mill applied for an extension of its inert classification, which the county agency through Locke denied Oct. 17. The mill appealed the decision

Oct. 22, triggering the review hearing, over which Locke presided. The inert waste permit was first granted in 1989. It was renewed several times since, an action that health officials now say was an error in judgment. In still denying the permit, Locke said he took the action because of concerns about the changing nature of waste generated by the mill during operation of an expanded biomass cogeneration plant. The $55 million, 24-megawatt

biomass plant is planned to be operative next year. Locke has said the granting of the original permit was in error because more is known about waste than when it first was approved. At the Nov. 28 hearing, the county presented witnesses that maintained that any facility that exceeds an 8.5 pH rating should not be qualified as inert. The amount of acidity or alkalinity of a substance is measured by pH. TURN

Love letters of ‘Peanuts’ artist for sale THE LATE “PEANUTS” creator Charles Schulz once was so infatuated with a young woman 23 years his junior he sent her dozens of romantic letters and drawings of his beloved cartoon characters. Many of the themes of that correspondence made it into his daily comic strips at the time. Now those love notes from 1970-1971 are being offered for sale at Sotheby’s in New York by the family of Tracey Claudius, who the auction house said is ill at her home near Philadelphia. It’s estimated the notes will fetch $250,000 to $350,000 at the Dec. 14 auction. Claudius met the cartoonist March 16, 1970, while accompanying a friend on an interview assignment. She ostensibly came along as a photographer but afterward admitted in a letter to Schulz that it was a chance for her to meet her idol and thank him “for all the enjoyment Charlie Brown and that ‘stupid beagle’ provide me.” She was 25. The married Schulz was 48. His comic strip ran for nearly half a century.

Takei, who is gay, says his appearance in the comic dovetails nicely with his real-life advocacy efforts and shows that anyone can aspire to be what they want to be, no matter who they are. Schulz died in 2000 at 77. There are 44 letters totaling 56 pages, including 22 original drawings of some of the characters, primarily Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Lucy. Many are signed “Sparky,” Schulz’s nickname.

Passings By The Associated Press

JAMES R. WHELAN, 79, the founding editor and publisher of The Washington Times, the newspaper established in 1982 by the Rev. Sun Myung Moon and his South Korea-based Unification Church, died Saturday at his home in Miami. Mr. Whelan was ousted from the newspaper after just two years, saying it had become Mr. Whelan what its detractors had always said it was, “a Moonie newspaper.” The cause of death was multiple organ failure, his nephew Bill Halldin said. Mr. Whelan had had a long career as a newspaper correspondent and executive, and was the vice president and editor of The Sacramento Union when he was recruited to run The Washington Times by Bo Hi Pak, the president of News World Communications, the media arm of the Unification Church. The pursuit was dogged. Mr. Whelan turned the job down more than once, at least in part because he thought the church, with its cultish reputation, would insist on editorial

control. But Pak said it would not. About half the staff Mr. Whelan eventually put together in 1982 was composed of church members, but it also included many veteran journalists, a number of whom had worked for The Washington Star, which had ceased publication the previous year. From the outset, the idea for The Washington Times was to provide a conservative alternative to The Washington Post. Over the next two years, Mr. Whelan helped build the paper’s circulation to nearly 100,000, and though that was a fraction of The Post’s, The Times commanded attention, not least because it was read daily by President Ronald Reagan, who often quoted it. Then, in July 1984, Mr. Whelan was fired in what the newspaper said was a dispute over his salary, but

Mr. Whelan, in a news conference, loudly attributed to his distress over the paper’s loss of editorial independence. The Times replaced him with the executive editor, Smith Hempstone, who was not a church member. Hempstone said Mr. Whelan’s accusations were baseless, as did other highranking editors, infuriating Mr. Whelan further.

A3 Briefly: Nation Border Patrol agent charged in smuggling PHOENIX — A U.S. Border Patrol agent has been arrested after authorities said he used his patrol vehicle to smuggle drugs while on duty in southwest Arizona. Aaron Anaya was on patrol Sunday when he stopped along the international border, then loaded up several bundles of marijuana that were dropped over the fence from Mexico, said a complaint filed this week in federal court in Arizona. Agents assigned to the Southwest Border Corruption Task Force were conducting aerial surveillance in the area about 185 miles southwest of Phoenix when they spotted Anaya stop along the fence and retrieve the bundles, the complaint states. The complaint said the agent was later arrested with nearly 147 pounds of marijuana found in three black duffel bags in his Border Patrol vehicle.

Hasan is charged with 13 counts of murder in the November 2009 shooting rampage. While in custody, Hasan has grown a beard that he claimed is an expression of his Islamic faith. Gross had sided with prosecutors who said the beard violated Army grooming standards and could confuse witnesses. The court declined to rule on whether Hasan could keep the beard but indicated that the next judge may not be the right authority to decide that issue.

Republicans dish out backlash to Boehner Conservatives taking issue with compromise gesture THE NEW YORK TIMES

WASHINGTON — John A. Boehner, the Republican speaker of the House, is facing a backlash from his party’s conservative wing after submitting a proposal to the White House on Monday that calls for collecting $800 billion more in tax revenue. The fight over tax increases has threatened to divide the Republican Party between its more moderate wing, which has indicated support for closing tax loopholes but not for raising tax rates, and the hard-line conservatives, who are resisting any plans that would raise tax revenue. Late Monday and Tuesday morning, the reaction started to roll in, and it was not good for Boehner. Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina, one of the more outspoken conservatives on Capitol Hill, called the plan “Speaker Boehner’s $800 billion tax hike.” In a statement released by his office, the senator was cutting. “This isn’t rocket science. Everyone knows that when you take money out of the economy, it destroys jobs, and everyone knows that when you give politicians more money, they spend it. This is why Republicans must oppose tax increases and insist on real spending reductions.” An influential tea party group

financed with support from the Koch brothers, Americans for Prosperity, said the speaker’s proposal failed conservatives. “The presi- Boehner dent’s proposal and Speaker Boehner’s counteroffer fail to seriously deal with the reality of the problems facing the nation,” said the group’s president, Tim Phillips.

‘Naughty or nice list’ Americans for Prosperity is planning more than just stern statements. A spokesman for the group said Tuesday it would target members of Congress, including sending volunteers to district offices and creating something similar to a “naughty or nice list” that shows which members are supportive of higher taxes. It is a dynamic that has haunted Boehner throughout the 112th Congress and shows again how he can become caught between the imperative to govern and the need to satisfy the right. Any move toward compromise with the president on fiscal issues quickly comes under attack from conservatives as a sellout. One of the major stumbling blocks to

reaching a similar deal with President Barack Obama last year was a fear that he could not sell a proposal to his own membership. The grumbling from the right also catches the attention of House Republican members. For many, their chief concern is not being attacked by Democrats for failing to compromise. It is the prospect of a primary challenge from the right on the grounds that they struck an unfair deal with Democrats and did not do enough to rein in government spending. The conservative critics of the Republican proposal are among those who have the means and experience to stir up primary trouble for Republicans they see as straying too far from Republican orthodoxy. Another prominent conservative to add her voice Tuesday to the growing number of Boehner’s critics was Sarah Palin, who said Republicans who break their promises to voters would face repercussions. “We send good conservatives to D.C. to fulfill the promises they made to the electorate, and yet when they stay true to their word the permanent political class in their own party punishes them,” Palin wrote in a post on her Facebook page, titled “C’mon Now, GOP, Don’t Go Wobbly on Us.” “This won’t be forgotten come 2014. Right now the GOP establishment is more concerned about the opinion of the media and the Georgetown cocktail circuit than they are ‘we the people’ who hired them.”

Coast Guardsman fired gun to avoid fatal crash THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN DIEGO — A Coast Guard officer fired several gunshots from an inflatable boat before it was slammed by another vessel in a crash that caused the first law enforcement fatality since the smuggling of drugs and immigrants by boat began spiking along the California coast several years ago. A criminal complaint filed Monday against two Mexican nationals aboard the suspect vessel disclosed the gunshots and other measures taken by the crew to avoid getting hit early Sunday near the Channel Islands, about 180 miles northwest of the U.S.Mexico border. Chief Petty Officer Terrell Horne III, 34, died from head trauma after being struck by a propeller. The complaint doesn’t say which boat hit him. Horne was assigned to the Halibut, an 87-foot patrol cutter based in Marina del Rey that was dispatched after a Coast Guard C-130 plane spotted the 30-foot “panga” vessel without lights near Santa Cruz Island west of Los Angeles. The panga was suspected of involvement in a drug smuggling operation. The cutter carries a 21-footlong, rigid-hull inflatable boat that the Coast Guard routinely uses on missions requiring speed

avoid a collision, the complaint said. Crew member Michael Walker attempted to steer out of the way, but the panga struck the front and left side of the Coast Guard boat.

Treated for knee injury


Coast Guard Petty Officer Terrell Horne III, shown in an undated photo, was killed early Sunday near Santa Cruz Island, Calif. and agility. Using the inflatable, Horne and his team came within 20 yards of the suspect vessel at 1:20 a.m. The Coast Guard boat flashed its blue lights and the crew ordered the suspects to stop in English and Spanish before the panga gunned its engine, knocking Horne and colleague Brandon Langdon into the water, the complaint stated. Jonathan D’Arcy, one of four officers on the inflatable boat, fired several shots at the panga to

Langdon was treated for a knee injury. D’Arcy and Walker were unharmed. Coast Guard crews followed the suspects by air and sea for nearly four hours until the vessel’s engine died 20 miles north of the Mexican border. An officer used pepper spray on suspects Jose Meija Leyva and Manuel Beltran Higuera, who were charged with killing a federal officer while the officer was on duty. Meija Leyva identified himself as the captain and told authorities he was taking gasoline to lost friends, according to the complaint. Beltran Higuera told authorities he was offered $3,000 to deliver gasoline to another boat that was waiting for them, but they never found it. The complaint makes no mention of drugs being found on the boat. Coast Guard investigator Joel Widell said in an affidavit that drug or immigrant smugglers may have been using the boat to supply fuel.

AUTHORITIES IN ARIZONA say they are seeking an 11-year-old with leukemia and a heart catheter who could die if not brought back to a hospital. The child, Emily, had been receiving chemotherapy at Phoenix Children’s Hospital for about a month. An infection forced doctors to amputate her right arm and insert a catheter in her heart. The device was set to be taken out before her mother, Norma Bracamontes, 35, took her out of the hospital Wednesday night. U.S. Border Patrol said they stopped her father, Luis Bracamontes, 46, at the Arizona-Mexican border. The child and her mother are both U.S. citizens.

A former local mayor, a regional governor and a fireman received the same sentence for allegedly failing to take sufficient precautions or not reacting efficiently after the fire started.

Centrum names Mixed data for lodging industry board member as interim chief BY PAUL GOTTLIEB



PORT TOWNSEND — A member of Centrum Foundation’s board of directors has been chosen to serve as the organization’s interim executive director until a replacement for John MacElwee, who resigned in November, is hired. Jim Costello, who was involved in the production of the Monterey (Calif.) Jazz Festival for many years and has served on the Centrum board for about a year, has declined any compensation for the term of his service, which he estimated will be about three months. Costello has owned a house in Port Townsend for eight years. He has lived here full time for three years. Costello served on the Pacific Grove (Calif.) City Council and was that city’s mayor until his retirement in 2006. He was a director of the Monterey County Fair and a member of various countywide committees, including the Fort Ord Reuse Authority. Costello, 69, will offer input about a new director but is not serving on the search committee, which is headed by board President Cynthia McBride. “Jim Costello is uniquely qualified to take on the role of interim director, and he will be able to hit the ground running,� McBride said in a statement.

“Given his depth of experience in arts and community leadership, plus his demons t r a t e d Costello devotion to Centrum, we are very fortunate to have him here to help ensure a smooth transition until a new executive director is hired.� Even if a new executive director isn’t named until the spring, the planning for summer events will be in progress. “Our program directors have everything mapped out,� Costello said. “My job will be to provide some suggestions and overall guidance.�

Artistic directors Artistic directors Suzy Thompson (Fiddle Tunes), John Clayton (Jazz Festival) and Daryl Davis (Acoustic Blues) are expected to return. While “big name� artists won’t be festival guests, Centrum continues to attract first-level talent. “One of my goals is to get national recognition for Fiddle Tunes and our Jazz Festival,� Costello said. “They are essential in the preservation of American traditional music, which needs to be taught.� Information about the search criteria for the new director is scheduled for posting on www.centrum. org.

PORT ANGELES — A mixed bag of tourism statistics was presented to a Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce luncheon audience this week. The lodging industry nationwide — from January through October this year — has recovered from a 7 percent loss in revenue incurred in 2009, Paula Beck, director of sales and marketing for ARAMARK Parks and Destinations’ Olympic Peninsula lodges, told the meeting audience Monday. But Olympic National Park attendance is down 6 percent from January through October 2012 compared with the same period in 2011, she said. Park spokeswoman Barb Maynes said Tuesday that weather “has been all over the map this year� and that there was no reason for concern. “When weather is particularly wet or cloudy or colder than normal, it can go down,� she said. “What it really indicates is, weather influences our visitation.�

‘Natural experience’ ARAMARK, which owns Lake Quinault Lodge in Grays Harbor County, promotes the environment and the “texture of the natural experience,� she said. “We still do feel it’s vital to keep a presence for corporate meeting plans.� Beck joined Joseph Mollerus, general manager of Red Lion Hotel in Port Angeles, and Tammy Oxentenko, director of sales for Olympic Lodge in Port Angeles, in a panel presentation on the lodging industry.

Industry growth on the North Olympic Peninsula is hampered by a lack of meeting space for group gatherings, an area where there’s money to be made, Mollerus said. Breaking down the numbers for the approximately 100 lunch-goers, individuals in meeting groups stay an average of 2.6 nights compared with individual guests, who stay an average of 1.4 nights, he said. “One of our challenges is telling groups about our lack of meeting space,� he said. “We don’t have the breakout space for the groups,� he said. “For us to try to go after group [business] is what really will raise the occupancy in this town.�

and be a benefit to Red Lion as well. “It wouldn’t be a burden.� In addition, having anchor events, such as the North Olympic Discovery Marathon and Half Marathon on June 2, 2013, “are really an answer to where we can grow occupancy in this town,� Mollerus said. He added that Red Lion is developing a “hyperlocal� website with Internet links and such information as where the best pizza is sold. “This is more than an opportunity to promote Red Lion,� he said. “That’s a strategy we are looking to do here: continue to grow the lodging tax dollars to invest back in the community so we can grow tourism.�

Ball Ferry Line are working on how to “spread the word� about the North Olympic Peninsula on Vancouver Island. Beck also said she and Diane Shostak, executive director of the Olympic Peninsula Visitors Bureau, are talking about bringing hoteliers from Vancouver Island to Port Angeles to show them what the area has to offer. “Partnerships are going to light the way,� Beck said. “The environment is the key,� she added. “That’s why people keep coming out.�

Occupancy percentages

Record occupancy

Mollerus said occupancy is 55 percent for all hotels annually in Port Angeles and 50.2 percent at Red Lion, which is up from last year but still falls “way short� of 2007 and 2009 totals. The region has seen a 4 percent spike in the lodging business, mainly on the Interstate 5 corridor, Mollerus said. “My feeling is we need to do something more to stimulate more groups coming here,� he said. Mollerus said a convention or conference center “would be a big asset� to the community. “It would give another dynamic to work with and bring larger associations to the area. “We just need to get them out here to see how beautiful the place is,� Mollerus said. “It would enable us to attract larger associations from the lodge to the park

Oxentenko said Olympic Lodge, which is owned by Western Inns, had record occupancy in October. She said Olympic Lodge, too, does not have adequate meeting space. “If it causes our competitor hotels also to be full, it would benefit us as well,� she said in a later interview. Partnerships are vital in the lodging industry, Beck told the luncheon audience. “Partnerships in the hospitality industry are what we can all do to raise the tide and float all boats, so to speak,� Beck said. Beck said it’s not likely anytime soon that Lake Quinault Lodge would open year-round. “There are different expenses for keeping a facility in operation year-round,� she said. “We’d all love for it to ________ happen,� Beck added. Senior Staff Writer Paul Gottlieb “To date, that hasn’t been can be reached at 360-452-2345, penciled out.� ext. 5060, or at paul.gottlieb@ Beck said she and Black

Down 33 percent Compared with 2011, visitation to Olympic National Park was down 33 percent in March and 17 percent in a “really rainy� June, Maynes said in a separate interview. But September was up 10 percent over 2011, when the weather “was wonderful,� she said. That’s typically for park visitation, said Maynes, who was not part of the Monday chamber program. “When we have great weather and great weather is forecast, our visitation is up,� she said. “When the weather is particularly wet or cloudy or colder than normal, it can go down.� The program for Monday’s luncheon included a presentation by the Clallam County Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots campaign.

Driver grazes Old Dungeness Schoolhouse PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

DUNGENESS — Clallam County sheriff’s investigators are continuing their probe into a Monday night crash in which a van damaged part of the front entrance to the historical Old Dungeness Schoolhouse. Chief Criminal Deputy Ron Cameron said a 1979 Chevrolet van driven by Dale Lynn Harris, 53, of Sequim drove off the north side of Towne Road onto the front steps of the 119-year-old schoolhouse building, which is now operated by the Sequim Museum & Arts Center. Cameron said the van struck and broke off pieces of concrete and destroyed the handrail on the steps

leading up to the entrance. The van then glanced off a portion of the foundation to the east of the steps and came to a stop on the grass, he said. Harris, the only occupant of the van, was found to be uninjured and had fled the scene on foot, Cameron said. Neighbors who witnessed the crash alerted Sheriff ’s Deputy Todd Yarnes, who found Harris in a nearby field. The driver was arrested without incident for investigation of driving under the influence of intoxicating liquor and/or drugs and taken to the Clallam County jail in Port Angeles. Harris remained in jail at midday Tuesday.


Silt-laden water is flushed into a side channel near the water intake for the industrial water treatment plant at the Elwha River west of Port Angeles on Tuesday.

Sediment, debris clogging equipment at Elwha plant BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS


Tire tracks, a chipped stairway and a scrape on the side of the building remain at the Dungeness Schoolhouse north of Sequim after an automobile collided with it.

PORT ANGELES — Heavy loads of sediment and woody debris in a rain-swollen Elwha River are clogging filters and pumps at the Elwha Water Treatment Plant west of Port Angeles, Olympic National Park officials confirmed. “Basically, they’re having to clean the filters a lot more

frequently than anticipated,� park spokeswoman Barb Maynes said. Drinking water is not being affected by the debris. Port Angeles’ municipal water supply comes from a well near the river, not from the industrial water treatment plant that takes water straight from the river, Maynes said. Water treated at the Elwha Water Treatment

Plant, located 2.8 miles from the river mouth, goes to the Lower Elwha Klallam tribal fish hatchery, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife fish-rearing channel and the Nippon Paper Industries USA Inc. mill in Port Angeles. Water leaving the treatment plant is well within standards, thanks to the efforts of crews, Maynes said. The Elwha Water Treat-

ment Plant is operated by Veolia Water North America, one of several contractors involved in the National Park Service’s $325 million Elwha River restoration project. A team of eight to 10 Park Service consultants and engineers was on site Monday and Tuesday making design modifications and improvements to the treatment plant’s intake system.

Permit: pH at 11 or 12 OlyCAP: Community aid CONTINUED FROM A1 Testimony for the mill estimated the facility’s pH rating at 11 or 12, suggesting alkalinity, but stated that level was within the scope of current regulations. The mill has based its appeal on the idea that its operations have not changed, so the permit process should also remain consistent.

“Port Townsend Paper has successfully managed the landfill as an inert waste landfill according to regulations that have not changed since 2004,� Scott said in a statement. “The wastes taken to the landfill have also not changed. The waste management facility permit should have been renewed last January when it was originally submitted. “The mill remains will-

ing to discuss the terms of the landfill permit with the county and state agencies [but plans to] file an appeal with the Pollution Control Hearings Board to preserve our rights for review of this permit denial.�

Author explores fact, fiction in researching Historical writer to show how to pen stories

Clara and Merritt, by Peter Donahue, is a historical novel set in Seattle in the 1930s and ’40s. Donahue will give a talk on the writing process Thursday at the library.


PORT HADLOCK — The way history can turn into a riveting tale of adventure: That’s the topic of novelist Peter Donahue’s “Inquiring Mind” lecture at the Jefferson County Library, 620 Cedar Ave., on Thursday. This talk is for anyone interested in Northwest history and history in general, said Donahue, who is coming from Winthrop to give the 6:30 p.m. presentation. Admission is free. Donahue, who has written several books inspired by the history of Washington state, will talk about how he does his research, the issues that arise in that process and how a historical novel takes shape. He’ll also discuss the work of other historical

writers, including Port Angeles’ Patricia Campbell. Then, to round out his 45-minute talk, Donahue Donahue will guide audience members in an impromptu composition of stories based on their own knowledge of local history. Participants will have the chance to explore the boundaries between fact and fiction. “Historical fiction is a form of writing history,” Donahue said. “The people who do it do thorough research. Some play fast and loose with the facts. And some adhere to the historical record pretty closely.” Donahue is the author of three novels set in the Evergreen State: The Cornelius Arms, Clara and Merritt and Madison House, winner of the Langum Prize in American Historical Fiction. He is co-editor of the anthologies Reading Seattle and Reading Portland,

he abducted her in February, the FBI said Tuesday. Israel Keyes told authorities he then left the woman’s body in toolshed for two weeks while he went on a cruise. Keyes dismembered the body of 18-year-old Samantha Koenig after he returned from the cruise and disposed of it in a frozen lake north of Anchorage, the FBI said in a release. Keyes, 34, was arrested in Koenig’s death in March in Texas, and police said he is suspected of killing at least seven other people across the country over the past decade. His body was found in his Anchorage jail cell Sunday after he apparently killed himself. Also Tuesday, authorities released video footage of Keyes abducting Koenig, caught by a surveillance camera. Keyes had faced a March trial in the killing.

Couple win drawing for gay-marriage license Happy Valley pair to be among first 10 in state to receive paper BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — A same-sex couple won a drawing to be among the first 10 same-sex couples to receive a marriage license in Washington state and will travel to Olympia tonight for the special event at 12:01 a.m. Thursday. Diana Wickman and Judy Persall of Happy Valley south of Sequim are preparing to be among the state’s first same-sex couples to wed Sunday — the first day same-sex marriages can legally be performed after the three-day waiting period after licenses are issued.

Wild Olympics backers call Clallam study ‘flawed’ BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — The Wild Olympics Campaign is disputing a Nov. 26 study commissioned by the Port of Port Angeles, Clallam County and city of Forks that concluded that jobs would be lost if Congress passes legislation to ban logging on 126,000 acres of Olympic National Forest by declaring the acreage wilderness. “The study is deeply flawed,” said a four-page statement written by Wild Olympics Coalition Chairwoman Connie Gallant of Quilcene, Sequim resident Bob Lynette of the North Olympic Group of the Sierra Club and Sequim resident Tim McNulty of Olympic Park Associates. “Removing a very small portion of the Olympic National Forest that is available for thinning does not lead to losing any jobs, since the current rate of harvest averages only 1,350 acres annually — a very small fraction of the avail-

able timber base.” Wild Olympics targeted the $24,000 study by Olympus Consulting of Port Angeles and Malus Partners of Sequim. It had determined that 4.5 jobs in Clallam County and 4.7 jobs in Jefferson County would be lost if 126,000 acres in Olympic National Forest are declared wilderness under the Wild Olympics Wilderness and Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 2012, now before Congress.

River designations Nineteen rivers in Olympic National Park and Olympic National Forest also would be declared wild and scenic, making areas near those rivers also offlimits to logging, according to the study. The study concluded 25 jobs total would be lost in Clallam, Jefferson, Grays Harbor and Mason counties if the legislation is approved. “I haven’t discussed this with the [port] commission,” port Executive Director Jeff

Robb said Tuesday in an email. “I don’t see this as a debate but rather difference of opinion and the assumptions used. “However, we do believe our report supports our conclusions.” Wild Olympics said the study’s authors confined their analysis of job losses to the logging industry, which represents less than 10 percent of the local economy, and said the study’s assumptions and data on the timber base in the forest “are incorrect.” “The real issue with additional restoration thinning on the Olympic National Forest is a lack of federal funding for such projects,” Wild Olympics’ response said. “The areas proposed as a wild classification in the Wild Olympics legislation are deliberately overlaid on reaches that currently have timber restrictions as designated wilderness, inventoried roadless areas or Late Successional reserves

greater than 80 years old.” The study also assumes that currently protected, inventoried roadless areas within the proposed wilderness could be opened for harvest, the response said.

Roadless areas Those areas are not available for harvest, but the study assumes they are relevant to the legislation’s impact, the response said. Wild Olympics also said the study “extrapolates imaginary direct timber impacts of the Wild Olympics legislation to calamitous mill closure scenarios that are unjustified by the methods presented in the study.”

The response cites “the incredible leap” made in the study that “any reduction in available fiber” would lead to the loss of more than 1,000 direct and indirect jobs. “The mill closure scenarios seem to be presented for the sole purpose of generating a large job impact number and have no bearing or relationship to the Wild Olympics proposal,” Wild Olympics Campaign members said, adding that no data are presented to prove that closures would result from the legislation. The authors of the Wild Olympics response said Olympic National Forest focuses on restoration thinning, not old-

growth harvesting. “We agree with the port’s conclusion that with increased funding and staff support, this forest could significantly increase habitat and watershed restoration projects that would, in turn, result in significant increases in harvest volume coming off the forest within the context of the Northwest Forest Plan,” they said. “All of these projects would be in areas outside of those proposed by Wild Olympics.”

Sequim-area woman charged in robbery, set to be arraigned BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

that Hedrich did not find the alleged victim’s wallet in the purse he took from the alleged victim, which caused Hedrich and Luquette to stop their car, Keegan wrote. Hedrich then ran back to the car the alleged victim was in and asked about the missing money, with the alleged victim responding that it was in the car McNeill had arrived in, Keegan wrote. McNeill said she did not have the money, so her associates developed a second plan: McNeill was to give the alleged victim a ride home, and another associate, later identified as Rebecca Walton, would rob the alleged victim when they got there, Keegan wrote. When McNeill and the alleged victim approached the alleged victim’s home, an individual — whom McNeill later identified as Walton — wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and a bandana put a gun to the alleged victim’s head, Keegan wrote. McNeill told investigators that she and Walton both felt bad about robbing the alleged victim, Keegan wrote. “McNeill said Walton commented to her that she could not believe they’d done this for $84,” Keegan wrote. Keegan said county sheriff’s deputies are still investigating the other individuals McNeill said were involved in the alleged robberies and have not made any additional arrests.

McNeill told investigators, however, that she knew she was never in danger of getting shot, Keegan wrote. Hedrich, who had gotten into McNeill’s car with McNeill and the alleged victim, then took the alleged victim’s purse and got out of the car with the stated intention to rob Luquette, though Luquette also was in on the plan, Keegan wrote.

SEQUIM — A Sequimarea woman has been charged in Clallam County Superior Court in connection with robberies to which investigators originally though she was merely a witness. Michelle Patricia McNeill, 28, will be arraigned Friday at 9 a.m. in Clallam County Superior Court after being arrested last week for investigation of first-degree robbery and booked into the Clallam County jail Nov. 29, according to documents filed in Clallam County Superior Court. McNeill, who is no longer listed on the Clallam County jail roster, was first approached by Clallam County sheriff’s deputies Nov. 16 as a witness to two robberies that had been reported by the alleged robbery victim that same day, said Sheriff’s Sgt. John Keegan. As investigators interviewed McNeill, she told them she and at least three other confederates had conspired to rob the alleged victim while at a friend’s house with the alleged victim Nov. 14, Keegan wrote in the motion for determination of probable cause filed in Clallam County Superior Court.

tim had left out that day, Keegan wrote. While at the house, McNeill said Luquette and Hedrich concocted a plan to use a BB gun designed to look like a real handgun to scare and rob the alleged victim after meeting with the victim and McNeill at Port Williams Beach northeast of Sequim the next day, Keegan wrote. The afternoon of Nov. 15, the alleged victim arrived by car at the beach parking lot with Hedrich in the passenger seat while McNeill drove her own car, Keegan wrote. All waited for Luquette to arrive, with McNeill telling investigators the plan was for Hedrich to take the alleged victim’s purse and pretend to rob Luquette, all while threatening to shoot both McNeill and the alleged victim with a BB gun if they got out of the car, Keegan wrote.

Suspect hit by car RICHLAND — A man running from police was struck by a car and went through the windshield early Tuesday on Highway 240 in Richland. The injured man, Adalberto Barragn, was in critical condition Tuesday afternoon at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The Pasco man had just turned 20 on Monday. The Tri-City Herald reported that he had been stopped for driving on a flat tire wheel rim, which threw sparks and gouged the pavement. He took off running and climbed a fence to reach the highway, where he was struck, the State Patrol said. It added that it was dark and raining at the time. The driver was treated for minor injuries at Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland. Peninsula Daily News

Carlsborg sewer setup done by late 2015, summit told Wastewater route, Ecology pact details among remaining issues Administrative Director Bob Martin said. “This is the third or fourth iteration of a sewage plan, and we are very close to getting this project in the hands of the engineers.� About 30 onlookers were in the audience, though the elected officials did not take comments or questions from the public. Interlocal agreements on financing the sewer system still must be negotiated between the PUD, which will own and operate the system, and the county beginning in January, according to the schedule chart. Project design would occur mostly in 2013, while discussion of a user-fee ordinance would begin in 2014, when a collection system will be built. A conveyance system to transport the sewage from Carlsborg to the Sequim treatment plant would be built in 2015.


SEQUIM — The Carlsborg community’s new publicly owned and operated sewer system should be completed by November 2015. The three-year timeline for the $13.9 million project was presented Monday to a summit of Clallam County commissioners, Sequim City Council members and Clallam County Public Utility District Commission President Ted Simpson at the Sequim Transit Center. It included a chart with construction schedules and targets for bid openings, fee-ordinance reviews and construction for the unincorporated community west of Sequim.

“The chart is the direction we want to go,� PUD General Manager Doug Nass said. The county or PUD could oversee the project, Martin said. The PUD has received a $10 million loan from the state Public Works Trust Fund to build the system, while the county will contribute $4.8 million to the effort. “It looks like we’ve got the amount of financing necessary at this point,� Martin said Tuesday. An interlocal agreement also must be negotiated among the city of Sequim, the county and the PUD to develop rates and fees. “We are ready to start the design and construction of a system and certainly a collection system in Carlsborg,� Martin said. “There’s no reason we can’t start to get going once we decide the roles.�

Facility plan The facility plan approved by the state Department of Ecology called for a treatment plant to be built in Carlsborg, but those plans have changed — and the changes require Ecology’s approval. “I think Ecology will be favorable toward this option,� Martin said. The plan now calls for the less-expensive option of transporting the sewage through about 3 miles of new piping for treatment at the city’s water reclamation treatment plant, Martin said. County, city and PUD officials reached consensus at a Nov. 5 commissioners’ work session that pursuing the Sequim treatment option was “the more logical� way to go, Martin said. Piping the sewage to Sequim reduces the cost of the project mainly by saving on operating costs, Martin said. Building a Carlsborg treatment plant would increase the project cost to

$15.7 million and leave the project about $1 million short of funds, he said. A likely sewage route from Carlsborg to Sequim would be over the Dungeness River through piping under the U.S. Highway 101 bridge that crosses the waterway between Sequim and Carlsborg, Martin said Tuesday. Tom Martin, with PUD water and wastewater systems, has worked on the project since 2006. “This is tentative and, I think, optimistic,� Tom Martin said, cautioning that Ecology hasn’t approved it and that the PUD must be involved in setting rates. “This is a good start,� he added. County Commissioner Jim McEntire, who represents the Sequim area, urged concerted action on getting the interlocal agreements in order. Monday night’s meeting and the November meeting “mark an important milestone here, and we ought not lose sight of that fact,� he said.

Sequim option Sequim Mayor Ken Hays echoed the importance of the meeting in an interview Tuesday afternoon. “I sort of feel like we do have consensus, to tell you the truth,� he said. “We have consensus that the Sequim [treatment] option is seen as the best one. “It’s good for the environment, the economies are there — it’s just a matter of working through the details.� Meeting attendees also reviewed information on Water Resource Inventory Area 18 and the updating of the city comprehensive land-use plan.

PDN Home Fund turns lives around with new eyeglasses CAN YOU IMAGINE if you needed eyeglasses, but you couldn’t afford to buy them? Could you read? Could you drive or hold a job? Could your children do their schoolwork? Could you be selfsufficient? Every year, the Peninsula Daily News’ Peninsula Home Fund provides new prescription eyeglasses to residents of Jefferson and Clallam counties. They are children, the elderly and others who are desperately trying to make ends meet. Without the help of the Home Fund, these people would have to choose between purchasing food, medicine and clothes — or buying prescription eyeglasses at an average cost of $195. Because of eyeglasses obtained through the Home Fund, children can succeed in school, unemployed adults can find jobs and support their families, and seniors can remain independent and safe in the

‘Out of the Mist’ to premiere Thursday Film shows splendor of Olympic range BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — The world premiere of “Out of the Mist,” an ode to the Olympic Mountains, will take moviegoers far into the backcountry this Thursday evening. The 48-minute film stars, most of all, the peaks and glaciers above us. And to reflect on the experience of exploring those places, “Mist” has four storytellers: poet and author Tim McNulty of Sequim, seasoned backpackers Dave Skinner and Dane Burke, and Quinault artist Harvest Moon.

TOM THOMPSON May 30, 1948 Nov. 28, 2012 Thomas A. Thompson was born May 30, 1948, in Seattle to Tommy and Christine Thompson, now deceased. He was lovingly known as Tom to all. He graduated from Lincoln High School in Seattle in 1966 and received an Associate of Arts degree from Peninsula College in 1998. He worked as a photographer for The Associated Press in Seattle before moving with his family to Port Angeles in 1974 to work for the Peninsula Daily News. He worked there for 33 years and retired from the PDN as chief photographer in August 2007. Tom took award-winning photos. He was constantly stopped by people who remembered special pictures he took. In 2007, he began his second career. Tom established Clear Horizon LLC, a general contracting company in Port Angeles. His founding principle was to make sure people always got great job done for a fair price. He enjoyed the time he spent with the community and the people involved with Biz Builders and the North Peninsula Building Association. He leaves behind his wife, Diane, his soulmate and the love of his life. Other survivors are sons Wade and Scott of Federal Way; daughter Brooke Nelson and her husband, Darrell, both of Port Angeles; stepdaughter Lisa Lovern and her husband, Todd, both of Lynnwood; stepson Michael Cooper of Lynnwood; grandchildren

He also is survived by a very special lady, stepmom Grace Thompson; his older brother Joe and his wife Dar, and younger brother Roger; extended family Mistie Zinn (her husband, Doug, is deceased); Joshua Lovern, Natosha Lovern and Tiffanie Zinn; seven cousins; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was previously married to Mary Mullikin (deceased) and Celeste Hirschstein. Those marriages produced his loving children.

He would challenge me in card games, never letting me win but having me try to beat him. He always knew how to make me smile. He was one of the funniest, caring people I knew. He always gave me tips on how to take better photography shots. There is not a day that will go by that I will not think about him or miss him. I am so thankful I got to spend as much time with him as I did.

Remembering Tom Here are remembrances from Diane: When I think of Tom, my heart bursts with pride. He was a man of honor and love and strength. I remember one of our first dates — we had gone to Port Townsend for dinner, and he ordered a hot seafood salad. He was taking a bite, and I told him I thought the yellow thing was a lemon. But he said no, it was zucchini. As he started to chew, his expression didn’t change, but he slowly took the yellow thing out of his mouth. “Yep, you’re right,” he said. “It was a lemon.” This was the foundation for years of laughter and love we shared. Another time we were in Port Townsend, and I wanted to demonstrate my picture-taking skills to Tom. We headed to the lighthouse and water. The beach and waves provided an excellent backdrop for a shot of Tom on the shoreline.

Mr. Thompson As I set up for the photo, paying special attention to lighting, the angle and the water, I asked Tom to take a step back so I get could it just right. “Just one more step . . . wait, I almost have it . . . one more . . .” As he backed up, an unexpected wave hit, soaking Tom from head to toe. I laughed. He did not. This became another household story and provided many chuckles. My favorite Tom story is when he proposed to me. We had gone to Las Vegas to a convention, and we were asked to participate in a magic show, or so I thought. I kept saying, “Please do not do anything funny,” as he usually did. Just then, a pillow flew to the floor. Down on one knee he went, and he asked me if I would spend the rest of my life as his wife. How lucky was I that this man chose me!

“Yes, yes,” I said, to which the 5,000 people at the convention yelled: “Get Elvis! Do it now!” We decided not to use Elvis and instead waited and had a beautiful ceremony with our family. Tom could be funny, charming and thoughtful, and was a true soulmate. I will miss you with my entire heart. I love you, Tom. From granddaughter Emily Lovern: I remember being at Grandpa and Mimi’s house. My friend Chelsea and I were vacuuming the basement. The vacuum broke. Grandpa was looking at it, trying to see what broke. He looked at us and said, “You sucked up a fricken bolt!” Chelsea and I started laughing because we would never expect him to say that to us. Grandpa Tom was always there for me.

She was my lover, my partner, my best friend and my wife. She will be truly missed until the day I die. If every man could have a woman with half the honor, respect and caring that Bev had, there would never be another separation or divorce. Rest well, my love. I will join you when my time comes. Love forever, Jerry

From the Zinn family: ■ From Mistie: When I think about Tom, two words come to my mind: respect and kindness. I respected Tom very much — not because he demanded it or because I even had to; I respected him because he was a man worthy to be respected. He was a man’s man. He was a man of integrity. I liked that. I admired that. I admired him. I enjoyed how he would always add a little lesson or learning of some sort into a conversation without me ever really catching on to what was happening until it was happening. Very well played, Mr. Thompson! Tom was a kind man. His manners and thoughtfulness toward others were over-the-top. I remember always being impressed by him and his ability to just simply be kind to others by showing them respect. His smile and laugh were infectious and contagious! He was the best at getting us all together to play football on the beach, flashlight tag, horse balls or that other game with the huge duct-taped ball that

■ From Tosha: I really appreciated how Grandpa Tom would always take the time to teach stuff to us kids. Not too many adults would make the time or spend the time doing that. I also enjoyed playing games with him and talking around the campfire while camping at Fort Stevens [State Park in Oregon]. Those are my favorite memories — camping with him. I will miss that.

Join us on Saturday Come share in remembering Tom. A celebration of his life will be held this coming Saturday, December 8, beginning at 1 p.m. at the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 East Fourth Street, Port Angeles. Words do not express the loss the family, friends and community share.

Waldo Evert passed away peacefully in his bed surrounded by his family on November 30, 2012, in Sequim. He was born April 22, 1926, in Kansas to Russian-German immigrants. His family, along with thousands of others driven by the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl, moved to California in 1932. Waldo served in the armed forces and aided in the rebuilding of Berlin following World War II. He had a long and meat-filled career in sales and management at Hormel Foods in California and Arizona until his retirement in 1988, when

Always quick to laugh, Waldo enjoyed people, and all who knew him enjoyed him right back. He was honest, loyal, generous and loving. He loved cooking good food (and big steaks) for his family, chatting with folks at the market and sharing a good — and appropriately ribald — joke. His survivors include his devoted wife, Mary; his daughter and light of his life, Kelly; his son, Robert, of whom he was most proud; and his daughterin-law, Summer, with whom he always shared a good laugh or three. He so enjoyed knowing and playing with his grandchildren, Madeline, 14, Deia, 6, and 1-year-old Silas. He will be missed by all who knew him.

■ From Josh: Tom was forever encouraging me to finish college and would tell me how proud he was of me for going. He always listened when I (or anyone, for that matter) had a question and would try and help you solve it. Not many like Tom — one-of-a-kind — and I will miss him.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Wednesday, December 5, 2012 PAGE


Some sobering thoughts for Christmas WHY CAN’T CHRISTMAS last all year? You’d better be glad that it doesn’t. Christmas can be a very dangerous, starting with Black Friday. This opening of the ChristPat mas shopping Neal season not only determines the health of our nation’s economy, it can be a bargain-hunting riot where people have been beaten, pepper-sprayed and trampled to death trying to get consumer electronics at up to 60 percent off. Got your shopping done? It’s time to put up the Christmas lights. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission in 2010, more than 13,000 people

included a visit to the emergency room as a part of their Christmas celebration to treat broken bones, cuts and burns that they got from decorating. Up to 16 decorating deaths and 100 house fires from bad circuits and wiring have been reported in one year. Let’s put up the tree. The Christmas tree is more than just a symbol used to celebrate the birth of Jesus; it has been described by fire officials as a “bomb in the middle of your house.” According to the U.S. Fire Administration, Christmas trees cause an average of 11,000 house fires that injure 250 people with 40 fatalities every year. Let’s open some presents. On average, more than 2 million dangerous toys and children’s products are seized by the Consumer Product Safety Commission every year before they can reach the hands of children. Still in 2010, more than

250,000 people were treated in emergency rooms due to toyrelated accidents. An average of 6,000 people a year go to the emergency room as the result of a psychotic condition known as “wrap rage,” where people injure themselves trying to open hard plastic packages. The last time I tried to open a package of batteries, it was like field dressing a deer — except the blood was my own. Then we throw the package away with the rest of the five million tons of garbage (including wrapping paper, ribbon, tinsel, greeting cards, broken toys, etc.) while producing 885,000 tons of carbon dioxide, 4,800 tons of sulfur dioxide and 2,800 tons of nitrogen oxide to make the extra electricity to light up all of those houses, shop windows and Christmas trees. Christmas is also a time to relax with dysfunctional family members and seasonally depressed friends, where the pres-

Peninsula Voices Dungeness Spit Regarding the article in the PDN about horseback riding and jogging on the trail to the Dungeness Spit [“Plan Would Prohibit Horses, Jogging on Dungeness Spit,’ Nov. 30], I can’t speak for the equestrian activity, since I am not a horseback rider. But I have occasionally gone running at the mentioned Dungeness park. Typically, runners are lithe, fit, nature-loving folks who move along at varying speeds. Humans have been running since the beginning, and I am guessing the rest of nature is used to it by now. Most runners move along quietly, and common sense tells me that loudtalking walkers may have at least as much impact on wildlife as faster moving but less noisy runners. Ah, but there is that common sense factor that is so often ignored by wellmeaning writers of documents such as the proposed conservation plan for the Dungeness Wildlife Refuge. And, if they are really concerned about scaring the wildlife, why is hunting still

allowed in the upper portion of the park? Doesn’t the sound of a shotgun being fired scare wildlife? The article states that the trail leading from the parking area to the base of the spit is narrow. That trail is like a freeway compared with many trails in other parks. The comment, “Wildlife comes first,” by Kevin Ryan [of the Department of Fish and Wildlife] is a nice notion, but since public parks are paid for by tax dollars and runners are taxpayers, it seems like there should be a more practical approach to accommodating different types of usage. Let the runners use the trails. Nick Parry, Sequim

Today’s faith The only thing biblical about this ever-evolving attempt by many of today’s “Christians” and televangelists to unite faiths and religious philosophies is that the Holy Bible, God, says, “Do not do it.” “I am the way, the truth

and the life,” says Jesus Christ. He did not say, “I, and other self-proclaimed gods, are the way.” A few hundred years after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, a jealous king made a decree: Replace the word Jerusalem with church and Jew with Christian. This is referred to as “replacement theology.” Google it. Does your church adhere to this? Flee it. Does your church want

sures of money and an increase in alcohol consumption place additional strains on relationships. Ask any law enforcement officer: Their worst calls are for domestic violence, which seems to increase during the holidays. Still got sugarplums dancing in your head? Sugar and refined carbohydrates are linked to diabetes. Researchers around the world have come to the conclusion that the consumption of refined sugar is detrimental to the health of people without diabetes and disastrous for those with it. Then it is time to carve the turkey. Americans consume more than 22 million turkeys on Christmas Day. Although turkey contains a natural sedative called Tryptophan, the chemical doesn’t have a large effect because it’s mixed with everything else you eat. That “food coma” you experience is the result of your body


working overtime to digest all that food. A study conducted by the National Institutes of Health found that the average person’s weight gain during the holidays is just over 1 pound. Sounds harmless, but the researchers found that the extra holiday weight was still present a year later on 85 percent of study participants. Gaining one extra pound each year can add up significantly. Christmas can be hazardous to your health, but it can be survivable. Shop local, buy American and thank God that Christmas doesn’t last all year.

Tom Thompson Tom Thompson, the former chief photographer for the Peninsula Daily News, will be deeply missed by his loved ones, friends and colleagues.

But he leaves behind a rich visual legacy that will be treasured for decades. As a PDN photographer, Thompson spent 33 years recording the life and landscape of the North Olympic Peninsula. The span of his PDN career covered more than a quarter of the 20th century and the first seven years of the 21st — a remarkable run. During that time, Thompson created a rich portfolio of images. He used his camera to record events large and small, such as the

sinking of the Hood Canal Bridge and a 93-year-old Sequim retiree’s birthday. His images often included the added dimension of emotion. They show us not only what the occasion looked like, but also how it felt. Thompson’s portfolio documented the times we live in, and future generations will likely revisit his photographs again and again. In that sense, he is in the same league as Samuel Morse, the pioneer merchant and public official who photographed the Makah; Darius Kinsey, who left behind a trove of largeformat images of early logging; Edward Curtis, who spent a career documenting Native Americans; and his brother Asahel Curtis, who photographed everything from the Klondike Gold Rush to downtown Seattle. In short, Thompson was a recorder of the human experience, and the North Olympic Peninsula just happened to be his studio and backdrop. We were lucky. Mavis Amundson and George Erb, Seattle

Struggling over a friend who struggles I STRUGGLE WITH December. As the month approaches, my spirit turns bittersweet. I’ve always thought it was the sentimentality of the season, or the rain. And then I remember my friend, Bonnie. From third grade through high school, we were inseparable. Naturally, we moved on. Though we hung on as best we could, understanding perfectly well what a risk it was to be out in the great big world without anyone who knew us before. At least we still had each other. As the years went on, I thought about her less, but I worried about her more. But as long as the therapist was helping — and Bonnie swore she was — I felt like she would ultimately rise out of depression, that it wouldn’t do her in. Her background was not exactly a recipe for success, but there she was, still the bravest, woman I knew.

FROM A WRITER’S NOTEBOOK I thought that if anyone Sanelli could outrun her past and walk with faith through whatever the present held in store for her, it was Bonnie. I’m not sure I understood then that when you say the word “depressed,” the people who love you start to worry. They may even take your sadness to heart until it becomes part of their own frame of mind, and that’s what began to happen to me. And I wasn’t able to say as much to Bonnie in a way that would make her less sad rather than more; that much I did understand.

Mary Lou














Instead, I moved away from our friendship. Slowly at first, and then, though it pains me to say this now, making a beeline. When your first best friend is depressed, when she is increasingly afraid of defeat, of life pressing down tremendously hard on her; while you, on the other hand, want to seize it all with youthful enthusiasm . . . well, let’s just say her despair scared me silly. And I was too young to handle it. So I sought out friends who were more like the person I wanted to become: lighter, confidant, impossibly positive. Of course, all this is only clear to me now in hindsight. When I received the call 10 years ago on Dec. 2 that Bonnie had taken her life, everything shifted around me. And yet, as I looked out at the window, everything about my neighborhood remained the same, Christmas lights twinkling. And this is the cruelest part about losing someone; how the

world carries on while you are frozen in time. Despite her sadness, Bonnie was also the kind of person who sincerely wished others well and, as a result, she was well liked. At her service, friends did what friends do, leaving flowers and food, saying things like, “She can finally rest in peace.” My first thought was how could anyone rest after what she’d been through? Depression is not how any of us would choose to go if given half a say in the matter. But I began to steal a little courage from the words. They freed me from the constant nagging guilt: Why did I abandon her? So I clung to it. People can cling to all kinds of clichés when they are desperate, I found this out. I am still a lot of other emotions come December, but I haven’t faulted myself (or, not as often) for my determination to find a way of life that made sense

to me, even if it meant leaving behind a disease that did not. Today, I’m less interested in blaming myself for all kinds of things beyond my control, and more interested in all the various detours I needed to take along the way. And on the verge of another new year, here is where I find myself: still believing I am capable of more, still determined to throw the curtains open and feel the warmth on my face, even on these darkest of midwinter days. But now, with more time, compassion and understanding for my friends who, for whatever unfair reason, cannot.

B Golf

Getting back on the course GETTING BACK INTO the swing of things after time away from golf can be difficult. A few weeks away from the Michael course can cause Carman complications, months can create doubts and years can wash away any previously existing level of comfort and confidence entirely. Recently, a reader emailed and opened with flattery, which elicits the same response out of me as a pet dog or cat getting its ears rubbed: full, undivided attention. She wrote that reading my column made her wistful about playing more golf. It had been more than a decade since she had been out for a round, and she feels a little intimidated about walking onto a course again. The reader also has a friend who is new to the game and wants to play but lacks confidence in her game. The reader had played most of her rounds in Texas and didn’t have a good idea about what courses are friendly to new or rusty golfers here on the North Olympic Peninsula. Short answer: All of them would be able to help in this regard. Every golf course worth its salt (and they are all worth their salt here on the NOP) is interested in helping new players learn the game or easing returners back to the course.

Teaching pros I would suggest booking an hour with any of the teaching pros at area courses. They can provide an expert look at what positives you have going for you and will give pointers on any mechanical issue they notice in watching your swing. They’ll also provide instruction with setup and alignment to help get things going in the right direction. Right now, with winter looming, practicing golfers are pretty much restricted to hitting balls off of artificial mats at driving ranges — I’m not 100 percent certain that every course has closed off the natural grass portions of their ranges, so phone ahead if this is a deal-breaker. Peninsula Golf Club in Port Angeles has the only covered range stalls around, if you are interested in getting out of the elements. All area courses have practice putting greens, some with chipping areas and some with practice sand traps. This is where all golfers should spend the majority of their practice time if you believe the oft-cited conventional wisdom of 60 percent of shots coming within 100 yards of the flag. The reader also asked about what days and times are best for inexperienced golfers. Right now, with limited daylight, I would avoid early mornings and instead play around lunchtime, teeing off somewhere from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. This would give plenty of time for 18 holes and just enough time to get a well-paced nine holes in. Other good times are when other sporting events are occurring: courses can be pretty sparse during Seahawks football games on Sundays. In late spring and summer, take advantage of twilight times — afternoon and evening golfers are usually more relaxed. On occasion you may run into a serious handicapper playing after work but just let them play through if you feel you are hindering them. TURN

Quilcene girls rip Eastside PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

QUILCENE — Megan Weller and Sammy Rae combined for 36 points to spark the Quilcene girls basketball team to a 53-22 nonleague win over Eastside Prep. Weller nearly scored as many points as the Eagles did as she swished in 20 points while adding eight rebounds Monday night. Rae popped in 16 points and grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds. The Rangers were strong on the boards as Andrea Lara brought down 10 rebounds and Jerrica Viloria had six boards. Quilcene’s Allison Jones added seven points to go with her three rebounds while Lara also had six points and Viloria scored two points. The Rangers benefitted from the return of Lara, a senior, and the addition of four eighth graders — including Jones, Katie Bailey, Brooke Raynor and Bailey Kieffer — who were brought up from the JV due to varsity injuries. The Rangers’ defense was especially effective, making good use of the full-court press.

Ex-assistant Malzahn takes over program

ball coach,� athletic director Jay Jacobs said. “Coach Malzahn was the clear unanimous choice of our search committee, and I am pleased that Dr. Gogue has accepted our recommendation. This is a great day for Auburn football and Auburn University.� The search committee was comprised of Jacobs, Auburn Heisman Trophy winners Pat Sullivan and Bo Jackson and former Tigers player Mac Crawford. Auburn owes more than $11 million in buyouts to Chizik and his coaching staff. Malzahn’s contract and salary information was not immediately available. The Tigers are hoping he can return them to success after a winless SEC season. “Gus Malzahn is a proven winner,� Jacobs said. “He is without question one of the brightest minds in college football and he has won everywhere he has been. “Coach Malzahn knows what it takes to build a championship program in the Southeastern Conference. “He knows our state and region and he understands what it will take to turn our program around. Coach Malzahn will also be an outstanding ambassador

for Auburn University, and that was important to the committee.� The NCAA has been investigating the recruitment of signee Jovon Robinson, who was ruled ineligible after a guidance counselor admitted to creating a fake transcript. The Tigers badly struggled in a transition to Scot Loeffler’s pro-style last season, starting three quarterbacks. Auburn was ranked in the top seven in rushing, total and scoring offense in 2010 and Newton won the Heisman Trophy in his lone season out of the junior college ranks. It was the Tigers’ first national title since 1957. Without Newton, the Tigers slipped to 100th in total offense in 2011 and then dipped even further. The hiring reunites Malzahn with the quarterback he recruited out of Arkansas. Kiehl Frazier was benched last season after struggling as the starter. He was USA Today’s national offensive player of the year as a high school senior. Malzahn had been earning $1.3 million a year for the Tigers after interviewing with Vanderbilt after the national championship season.

Pirates Cancelled

AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn has turned to Gus Malzahn to restore a program that made an unprecedented fall two years after winning a national title with Cam Newton operating his high-powered offense to perfection. The school announced that it will introduce the former Arkansas State coach in a news conference Tuesday night. Malzahn was the Tigers’ offensive coordinator during their 2010 national championship run before heading to Arkansas State for his first college head coaching position. He led the Red Wolves to a 9-3 record, a Sun Belt Conference title and a berth in the Bowl then parlayed that into a job in the powerhouse Southeastern Conference. “It’s an outstanding institution with a storied football program that I had the pleasure of experiencing firsthand for three years,� Malzahn said in a statement. He thanked school rep-


Two of the first places came at opposite ends of the weight spectrum as lightweight Sebastion Morales was champion at 106 pounds and Miguel Morales took first at heavyweight (285 pounds). Miguel Morales, a firstyear 1A wrestler, beat Port Angeles 2A standout Michael Myers in the championship match. Myers, a senior, captured eighth place in 2A state last season. Also earning an individual championship was Javier Contreras at 132 pounds. Contreras defeated teammate Nanitio Sanchez in the title match. Joining Sanchez as runner-up for Forks were Sebastian Barragan at 126 pounds, Ricky Barragan at 138 and Abisai Garcia at 152.

Other top Forks places went to James Salazar, third at 170, and Alvaro Ortiz, fourth at 113. “We have a lot of room for improvement, but I think these kids will do well this year,� Forks coach Bob Wheeler said. Forks took fourth place in the team standings with 201 points as Port Angeles won the team title with 233.5, Olympic was second with 222 and Elma third with 221.


resentatives for their confidence “in my ability to turn this program around and to bring Auburn back to national prominence. This is a homecoming for me and I look forward to being reunited with the Auburn family.� Malzahn, 47, returns with his fast-paced, no-huddle offensive style. He replaces former boss Gene Chizik, who was fired one day after a 49-0 loss to No. 2 Alabama to complete a 3-9 season. Before his arrival at Auburn in 2009, Malzahn had spent two seasons as Tulsa’s offensive coordinator. He was the offensive coordinator at Arkansas for one year after a successful run in the Arkansas high school ranks. Auburn had the nation’s 115th-ranked offense last season, averaging 305 yards a game. The Red Wolves were ranked 19th in total yards under Malzahn. It’s the second straight time Auburn has turned to one of its coordinators from an unbeaten team. Chizik ran the defense for the 13-0 team in 2004 but was hired by the Tigers despite a 5-19 record in two seasons at Iowa State. “We are tremendously excited that Gus Malzahn will be our next head foot-

Whisenhunt’s seat is heating up Losses keep piling up for Cards BY BOB BAUM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TEMPE, Ariz. — The Arizona Cardinals offense has been bad this season, but never worse than it was on Sunday. Its performance in the 7-6 loss to the New York Jets was among the worst in the team’s history, and that’s saying something for a franchise that’s had a lot of bad Sundays. Seattle is hosting the Cards this Sunday at 1:30 p.m. The team had five first downs, tied for fewest in franchise history, was 0 for 15 on third-down conversions and gained 137 yards, 40 of them on a fake punt. The Cardinals gained 22 yards in the second half. Still, coach Ken Whisenhunt stayed with rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley, refusing to reinsert John Skelton, benched by the coach three games ago. Now the Arizona losing streak has reached eight games, matching the franchise’s longest in 68 years. Exceedingly popular among fans for bringing the Cardinals to the Super Bowl in the 2008 season, and to the NFC West crown the following year, Whisenhunt finds himself the subject of the fans’ wrath. Speculation is mounting that he might not return for the final year of his contract. He said Monday that he has too much else on his mind to be concerned about


New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan, left, stands next to Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt before their game in East Rutherford, N.J. Both coaches are feeling heat because their teams aren’t doing well, but at least Ryan beat Whisenhunt 7-6 in a poorly played game by both teams Sunday. his job status. “It takes enough energy focused in trying to win, to turn it back around,” Whisenhunt said. “You can’t worry about things you can’t control.” Team President Michael Bidwill, the owner’s son, has not spoken publicly about the situation. Whisenhunt is among the highest-paid coaches in the NFL, due to make $5.7 million next year, and the Bidwill family is not known for tossing around that kind of money, although the ownership has proven to be far more generous in recent seasons, especially since the

University of Phoenix Stadium opened in 2006. Arizona has sold out every home game since then, but the fan base is shaky and that string is in serious doubt, if not for the next home game against Detroit, then certainly for next year. The team’s offensive woes this season have stemmed in large part from injuries, particularly to left tackle Levi Brown, quarterback Kevin Kolb and, most recently, center Lyle Sendlein, who was sorely missed against the Jets. Yet with the defense playing so well, it’s particu-

larly maddening to fans to watch the offense stagnate. Lindley completed 10 of 31 passes for 72 yards with one interception and, obviously, no touchdowns. Twenty-three of those yards came on a pass to Larry Fitzgerald the second play of the game. Fitzgerald never caught another pass all day. On Monday, Whisenhunt wouldn’t commit to staying with Lindley in next Sunday’s game at Seattle, against one of the NFL’s best defenses in one of the league’s toughest environments for a visiting team. “We’ve got to look at it

with the players today and understand why we had the breakdowns we did,” he said, “why we weren’t successful on some of these plays, and then we will decide from that point.” The best scenario would be the return of Kolb, who was the quarterback when the team got off to a 4-0 start but who went down with a rib injury that has sidelined him for six games. Kolb has practiced on a limited basis the past two weeks but the injury, to cartilage at the top of his rib cage, is particularly iffy. Asked if there was any realistic chance of Kolb

playing in Seattle, Whisenhunt said, “the only way we will know is when he can do it in practice.” “He is making progress,” Whisenhunt said. “Until we can get out there and see that he can make the throws and be able to do those kinds of things, then we’ll know.” Skelton, who beat out Kolb for the starting job in the preseason only to go down with an ankle injury in the opener, said he hopes Whisenhunt hasn’t lost confidence in him. Skelton said he was ready to come into the game whenever the coach told him to on Sunday. As things got worse on the field, his desire to play grew, he said. “Every bit of my being I wanted to play, that was going into the week, too,” Skelton said. “It’s not just on Sunday. I think anyone in the locker room wants to play. “No one wants to sit on the sideline. When you see things going the way they did, it kind of makes you champ at the bit a little more.” Whisenhunt said he thought about switching quarterbacks, but decided Lindley gave the team the best chance of winning. Others watching the game found that conclusion hard to understand. The team that did switch quarterbacks, the Jets, mounted the game’s only touchdown drive with backup Greg McElroy at the controls.

It is hard to know how soon.�

Ford is depending on the MKZ to start reversing a luxury-buyer defection to such foreign brands as Lexus and BMW. It’s the first of seven new or revamped Lincolns due out by 2015. The MKZ, which was unveiled in concept form at the Detroit Auto Show last January, is longer and wider than the current version. It starts at $35,925, or about the same as its archrival, the Lexus ES 350. A hybrid version is the same price. Among its new features are a push-button transmission instead of a shifter and an optional panoramic glass roof. It still has Lincoln’s split-wing grille, a tribute to the 1938 Lincoln Zephyr

DEAR ABBY: When I was an adolescent, my father molested me. It took me 20 years to finally confide this secret to my mother. Afterward, it felt as if a huge weight had been lifted from my shoulders. That feeling lasted about two minutes. That’s how long it took for her to get on the phone and spread the news to everyone she could think of. This was two years ago, and after repeatedly asking her to stop, she continues to tell. Two days ago, I caught her spilling the beans to an acquaintance she hadn’t spoken to in more than a decade. We got into a heated argument, and she told me she will say what she wants whenever she wants to whomever she wants. My feelings are not considered, even though I was the victim in all of this. I feel she tells my story to gain sympathy for herself. Abby, I’m ready to end my relationship with my mother. How can I make her stop flapping her lips? The Gossip’s Daughter

Dear Sensible Mom: If you are uncomfortable paying for a body modification for your daughter, then don’t do it. However, you should take into consideration that Shannon is an adult now and reconsider imposing your values on her. If she were my daughter, I would give her a check for Christmas along with a note expressing holiday wishes and the thought that you gave her a healthy body and with it a nice complexion. It is now hers to do with as she wishes. Then cross your fingers and hope she’ll have second thoughts.

Dear Daughter: I suspect you are correct about your mother’s motives, and you have my sympathy. Because you can’t “make her stop flapping her lips,” you will have to accept that she can’t be trusted with any confidential information. As I see it, you have two choices. The first would be to cut her out of your life (for which I wouldn’t blame you), and the other is to avoid sharing any personal information with her in the future.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A last-minute alteration must not ruin your plans. Juggle whatever is required to finish what you start. Taking hold of a situation will allow you the freedom to do as you please. Hide your emotions and you’ll gain respect and support. 2 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep things simple, to the point and within your budget. You’ll come up with a plan that will help you please the ones you love. A positive turn of events will get you back on track financially, physically and emotionally. 3 stars

Briefly . . . Donations solicited for Sandy victims PORT ANGELES — Donations of gift cards and cash will be collected today to support Hurricane Helpers, a group of 11 Franklin Elementary School students tasked with raising funds and writing letters to students at George J. Mitchell Elementary School in Little Egg Harbor Township, N.J. Hurricane Helpers “adopted” the school because many homes there were washed away by superstorm Sandy, and it is a small town, similar to Port Angeles. The students will collect donations at the Safeway on Lincoln Street in Port Angeles from 12:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. today. Additional volunteers also will be stationed at Safeway from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. With the purchased gift cards, Safeway is offering four times its usual gas reward points. Gift card donations are encouraged. Cash donations will be used to purchase additional gift cards. All donations will go to the families of George J. Mitchell Elementary School.
