Man wrongfully freed turns self in Transient was on lam 2 days BY JOE SMILLIE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES –– A man accused of assaulting a sheriff’s deputy Sunday and who was mistakenly released from jail Monday turned himself in Wednesday. After an all-night manhunt by law enforcement officers across the North Olympic Peninsula, Matthew Kevin McDaniel, 27, walked into the lobby of the Clallam County jail shortly before 10 a.m. Wednesday and was arrested and booked, Chief Corrections Deputy Ron Sukert said.

McDaniel, a transient, was set free by the Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office on Monday after he was arrested Sunday night for investigation of allegedly assaulting Deputy Mark Millet. McDaniel now awaits a first appearance in court after prosecutors Tuesday filed a charge of third-degree assault on a police officer, a Class C felony, for a Sunday night altercation at Railroad Bridge Park in Sequim.

Seeing a judge today Chief Deputy Prosecutor Mark Nichols said McDaniel likely would see a judge for the first time this afternoon. Superior Court Judge S. Brooke Taylor issued a warrant and fixed a $10,000 bond for

McDaniel when the charges were filed Tuesday. McDaniel remained in jail Wednesday afternoon. All lawenforcement agencies at Deputy the city, Cameron county and state levels were alerted that McDaniel was wanted and on the loose Tuesday, Chief Criminal Deputy Ron Cameron said. “Everybody was out looking for him all night,” Cameron said, adding when asked that he did not know the cost of the manhunt. McDaniel was arrested for

allegedly shoving Millet as the deputy reportedly was trying to evict McDaniel from the parking lot in front of the park, where McDaniel was sleeping in his vehicle, shortly before midnight Sunday. The park closes at dusk. McDaniel allegedly shoved and shouted obscenities at Millet before the incident ended with Millet using a stun gun on him. Investigators reported that they found a loaded Springfield XD .40 pistol with 16 rounds of ammunition, along with evidence of alcohol and marijuana, while searching McDaniel’s car after they impounded it. Prosecutors, Nichols said Tuesday, made a “mistake” in ordering McDaniel’s release Monday. An unusually heavy caseload

of weekend arrests, coupled with short-staffing in the Prosecutor’s Office, forced a deputy normally assigned to the office’s civil division, which represents the county and its agencies and officials, to work on criminal cases. McDaniel was released with the intent of charging him at a later date, Nichols said. In a phone call Monday night, McDaniel told the PDN he had lost his job as a welder and has been living out of his vehicle. Nichols said McDaniel should have been charged or kept in jail on a 72-hour hold.

Postal Service to cut Saturday mail delivery Office closures also are eyed BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Post offices in Joyce, Sekiu and LaPush in Clallam County could be closed — or have their daily retail counter-service hours cut from eight hours to four hours — by September 2014 under nationwide costreduction measures announced Wednesday by the U.S. Postal Service, an agency spokesman said. The three West End post offices also will be affected — as will all post offices across the nation — by Postal Service plans to limit street-address mail-delivery service Saturdays to only parcels, restricting letter delivery to Mondays through Fridays, beginning in August. “We’ll probably have a reduced crew on Saturdays,” Postal Ser-

vice spokesALSO . . . man Ernie ■ Postmaster Swanson said. general to Post offices make case to in Jefferson Congress/B6 and Clallam counties employ about 125 people, Swanson said. Employment at the Postal Service has decreased over the past six years as the independent government agency has struggled financially with costs, but most of the job cuts have come through attrition, Swanson said. Most staff cuts will occur in larger offices with city letter carriers, he added. “I would hate to say we’re going to terminate anyone,” Swanson said. “We’ll try to avoid that.”

Surveys on West End Swanson said mail customers in Joyce, Sekiu and LaPush will be mailed surveys asking them if they prefer one of four alternatives: shutting down the facility,

reducing its hours of retail operation, placing clusters of mailboxes at central locations or establishing a tiny “village post office” that a private business would run under contract with the Postal Service. The surveys will be followed by community meetings to further pin down what residents prefer, Swanson said. Community meetings on the West End service reductions have been set for noon Feb. 26 at the Joyce Post Office at 50883 state Highway 112 and at 4 p.m. Feb. 26 at the LaPush Post Office at 500 Ocean Drive. A meeting for Sekiu has not been scheduled. “If they prefer reduced hours, we ask what block of hours would work best,” Swanson said. Residents will be notified of the Postal Service’s decision by mail.

Braxton’s son debuts in her new TV movie TONI BRAXTON’S AUTISTIC son makes his acting debut in her new Lifetime movie, “Twist of Faith,” and could have had a bigger role, but the singer didn’t want to put too much pressure on him. “He was supposed to play my son initially, but by the time we worked out the shooting schedule, Braxton school had started,” Braxton said of 9-year-old Diezel. (She also has an 11-year-old named Denim.) “Even though he’s considered high-functioning right now, he wasn’t in the past, and that’s why I thought him carrying the movie and trying to do the movie and tutoring would have been too much for him,” the 45-year-old singer said. Braxton decided he should take a smaller role.




The newest Monopoly token, a cat, rests on a Boardwalk deed next to a die and houses at Hasbro Inc. headquarters, in Pawtucket, R.I., on Tuesday. Voting on Facebook determined that the cat would replace the iron token. “He was a little disappointed at first, but I think in the end, he’s happy about the turnout,” she said. Braxton understands the pressure. Although she has had small acting roles and stars in the WE reality TV series “Braxton Family Values,” which has its season

premiere March 14, she is the main star of “Twist of Faith” — and that makes her nervous. “I never had to carry anything before. It’s a lot of work,” she said of her role in the film, which debuts Saturday on Lifetime at 8 p.m. EST.

ESSIE MAE WASHINGTON-WILLIAMS, 87, the mixed-race daughter of one-time segregationist Sen. Strom Thurmond, who kept her parentage secret for more than 70 years, has died. Vann Dozier of Leevy’s Funeral Home in Columbia, S.C., said WashingtonWilliams Ms. died Sunday. WashingtonA cause of Williams death was in 2005 not given. Ms. Washington-Williams was the daughter of Thurmond and his family’s black maid. The identity of her famous father was rumored for decades in political circles and the black community. She later said she kept his secret because “he trusted me, and I respected him.” Not until after Thurmond’s death in 2003 at age 100 did Ms. WashingtonWilliams come forward and say her father was the white man who ran for president on a segregationist platform and served in the U.S. Senate for more than 47 years. “I am Essie Mae Washington-Williams, and at last, I am completely free,” Ms. Washington-Williams said at a news conference revealing her secret. She was born in 1925 after Thurmond, then 22, had an affair with a


16-year-old black maid who worked in his family’s Edgefield, S.C., home. She spent years as a schoolteacher in Los Angeles, keeping in touch with her famous father. While Thurmond never publicly acknowledged his daughter, his family acknowledged her claim after she came forward. She later said Thurmond’s widow, Nancy, was “a very wonderful person,” and called Strom Thurmond Jr. “very caring and interested in what’s going on with me.”

It was the first assassination in postrevolutionary Tunisia and set off antigovernment riots that left downtown Tunis choked Belaid with tear gas and patrolled by armored vehicles. The killing of Chokri Belaid, a 48-year-old lawyer, heightens tensions in the North African nation whose path to democracy has been seen as a model for the Arab world so far. Police used tear gas to disperse thousands of protesters who assembled outside the Interior Ministry. At one point, an ambulance carrying Belaid’s body drove in front of the ministry accompanied by protesters before they, too, were forced away. Belaid, a leading member of a leftist alliance of parties known as the Popular Front, was shot as he left his house in the capital, Tunis, and was taken to a nearby medical clinic, where he died, the TAP state news agency reported.

Most of the six men and six women live in Mexico City and were vacationing in Acapulco.

Quake, tsunami kill 4 in South Pacific chain Solomons hit by 5-foot wave THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SYDNEY — A powerful earthquake off the Solomon Islands on Wednesday generated a tsunami of up to about 5 feet that damaged dozens of homes and left at least four people missing and presumed dead in the South Pacific island chain. Authorities canceled tsunami warnings on more distant coasts. Local officials reported that two 1.5-meter (4-foot, 11-inch) waves hit the western side of Santa Cruz Island, damaging between 70 and 80 homes and properties, said George Herming, spokesman for the prime minister. Many villagers had headed to higher ground, he said. Dozens of strong aftershocks followed the quake. Solomon Islands Police Commissioner John Lansley said local police patrols reported that several people were presumed dead. “Sadly, we believe some people have lost their lives,” he said. “At the moment we potentially know of four, but there may of course be more.” One of the people presumed dead was fishing in a dugout canoe when the first wave hit, sweeping him out to sea, Herming said. Officials were searching for his body. A woman was believed to have drowned when the water rushed into her village, Herming said. Four villages on Santa Cruz were hit by the waves, with two facing severe damage, Lansley said. Other areas of the Solomons did not appear to have been seriously affected.

He said it was difficult to contact people because cellphone coverage was patchy in the region. In Honiara, the warnings prompted residents to flee for higher ground.

OfficiaIs: Alabama bunker was rigged with explosives THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MIDLAND CITY, Ala. — As FBI and police negotiators sought for days to coax an Alabama man into freeing a kindergartner held hostage in an underground bunker, the captor was planning for violence, authorities say. He rigged the bunker with explosives, tried to reinforce it against any raid, and when SWAT agents stormed the shelter Monday to rescue the boy, Jimmy Lee Dykes engaged in a firefight that left the captor dead, the FBI and officials said. After the nearly weeklong hostage ordeal, relatives said the boy who turned 6 on Wednesday appears to be doing well and is back at home. He was seized off a crowded school bus Jan. 29 after authorities said the 65-year-old gunman shot the driver dead and took the child to the bunker, where he was held until Monday’s rescue. While the FBI largely has been tightlipped about how it monitored Dykes’ behavior and mood in the days leading up to the rescue, the latest revelations suggest

Quick Read


A photo released by the FBI shows the pipe agents used to communicate with Jimmy Lee Dykes as he held a boy hostage in an underground bunker in Midland City, Ala. authorities were dealing with an abductor fully prepared for more violence even as he allowed police to send food, medicine and toys into the bunker for the boy. An FBI statement late Tuesday said Dykes had planted an explosive device in a ventilation pipe he’d told negotiators to use to communicate with him on his

property in the rural Alabama community of Midland City. The suspect also placed another explosive device inside the bunker, the FBI added. Dykes appears to have “reinforced the bunker against any attempted entry by law enforcement,” FBI special agent Jason Pack said in the statement.

THE WOMAN CHARGED with killing her lover in the shower of his Arizona home described Thursday how he made repeated sexual advances all while converting her into the Mormon faith during the early stages of their stormy romance. Jodi Arias took the witness stand for a third day in her murder trial as she described her relationship with Travis Alexander before she stabbed and shot him in what she says was self-defense. Her defense team put her on the stand in an apparent attempt to build sympathy with jurors in hopes that they convict her of a lesser sentence and spare her the death penalty.

GRANTS FOR HOMEOWNERS to fix their properties, spending to install generators at public housing complexes and competitions to create new storm-resilience technology are among the city’s plans for some of its federal superstorm Sandy aid money, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Wednesday. The city also envisions nearly $200 million in grants and loans for storm-struck businesses and a $40 million contest for utilities to harden power, fuel and phone networks against storms, he said as officials detailed how they will use the city’s share of the more than $50 billion multistate Sandy recovery package.

EARTH-LIKE WORLDS MAY be closer than anyone imagined. Astronomers reported Wednesday that the nearest one may be 13 lightyears away — or some 77 trillion miles. Galactically speaking, it is next-door. If our Milky Way galaxy were shrunk to the size of the United States, the distance between Earth and its closest Earth-like neighbor would be the span of New York’s Central Park, said Harvard University graduate student Courtney Dressing, the study’s lead author. “The nearest Earth-like planet is simply a stroll across the park away,” she said at a news conference in Cambridge, Mass.

COLOMBIA’S MAIN REBEL army called on the government Wednesday to legalize the cultivation of marijuana, poppy and coca leaf, as well as the personal consumption of drugs derived from those plants. The chief negotiator of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, presented the proposal as part of peace talks launched in Norway in October and begun in earnest the following month in Havana. “Legalizing consumption . . . as was done in the past with the use of tobacco and alcohol can be done with cocaine,” said the FARC commander, Ivan Marquez.

Francis “Chugger” Deane, 61, of Port Angeles was toting a small package he had retrieved from the retail counter as he quickly walked to his large SnapOn Tools truck. He, too, was indifferent about the cuts. “It’s not going to have any effect on me,” Deane said.

Consolidation The Postal Service also has consolidated more than 200 mail-processing locations nationwide since 2006, and that’s likely to continue, Swanson added. “We are looking at consolidating some mail-processing operations in the Puget Sound area to do more mail processing in Seattle and less in Everett, Tacoma and Olympia,” he said.

Jewell, the first woman Obama has nominated for his Cabinet in his second term, would replace current Interior Secretary Ken Salazar if confirmed by the Senate. Salazar held the post throughout Obama’s first term. He announced last month that he would step down in March. The Interior Department manages more than 500 million acres in national parks and other public lands, including a large amount of the North Olympic Peninsula, and more than 1 billion acres offshore, overseeing energy, mining operations and recreation. The department also provides services to 566 federally recognized Native American tribes.

Edged out others Jewell emerged as a front runner for the Interior post in recent days, edging out better-known Democrats such as former Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire and former Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter. The Interior job traditionally has gone to politicians from Western states. Salazar was a Colorado senator before taking over at Interior in 2009. Jewell donated $5,000 to Obama’s re-election effort and has supported other Democrats, campaign

“She climbed Mount Rainier. And anyone who has climbed Mount Rainier has got to be OK.” JIM WHITTAKER 1st American to scale Everest of the Interior Department appointment, but Jewell was clearly in a good mood, Whittaker said. “She had a big smile on her face and seemed very happy and engaged,” he said. Aside from her business and conservation strengths, Jewell measures up to one of Whittaker’s personal tests. “She climbed Mount Rainier,” he said, “And anyone who has climbed Mount Rainier has got to be OK.”


President Barack Obama and his Interior nominee, REI Chief Executive Officer Sally Jewell, center, applaud outgoing Interior Secretary Ken Salazar on Wednesday in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington, D.C. finance records show. The White House faced criticism that the new Cabinet lacked diversity after Obama tapped a string of white men for top posts, but Obama promised more diverse nominees were in the queue for other jobs. Jewell’s confirmation also would put a prominent representative from the business community in the president’s Cabinet, since REI is a $2 billion-a-year company and has been named by Fortune magazine as one of the top 100 companies to work for. Before joining REI in 2000, Jewell worked in commercial banking and as an engineer for Mobil Oil Corp.

Jewell had served as president of the commercial banking group Washington Mutual from 1996 to 2000, as president of WestOne Bank from 1992 to 1995, as executive of Rainier Bank/ Security Pacific from 1981 to 1992 and as an engineer with Mobil Oil Corp. from 1978 to 1981. She assumed the top post at REI in 2005. Jewell, who is married with two grown children, was paid more than $2 million as REI’s CEO in 2011. Jewell was born in England but moved to the Seattle area before age 4 and is a U.S. citizen. Jewell’s nomination was hailed by conservation and

business groups alike. Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune called Jewell a champion in the effort to connect children with nature and said she has “a demonstrated commitment to preserving the higher purposes public lands hold for all Americans: recreation, adventure and enjoyment. The Western Energy Alliance, which represents the oil and natural gas industry in the West, also welcomed Jewell’s nomination. “Her experience as a petroleum engineer and business leader will bring a unique perspective to an office that is key to our

Rick Boatner said it is believed to have been a support vessel for a commercial fishing boat. The boat was found Tuesday — hull up — embedded in the sand with most of the hull exposed. The Fish and Wildlife department said two of its biologists who looked at the boat feel it poses very little risk in terms of possible invasive species. Boatner told The Oregonian that 99 percent of the vessel is covered in gooseneck barnacles, which climb aboard in the open ocean. Several other marine organisms also are present. Boatner said Oregon Parks and Recreation will deal with removing the boat.

nation’s energy portfolio,” said Tim Wigley, the group’s president. Whittaker said Jewell’s business experience and her love of the outdoors provided a good balance.

Love of outdoors “She’s very perceptive, knows about the value of natural resources and has a good grasp on preservation issues,” Whittaker said. “Having run a successful business, she knows the importance of creating jobs in the outdoors.” Whittaker said he saw Jewell last week at a trade show in Utah. There was no discussion

Jewell also was on the board of directors of Avista Corp., a Spokane-based power utility, from 1997 through 2003. U.S. Securities and Exchange documents show that in her last full year as an Avista board member, Jewell held more than 15,600 shares in the utility and received $50,000 in director’s fees. In 2004, federal prosecutors charged that Avista played a role in a 2000 deal that allowed then-energy giant Enron to sell a $3 million turbine to the Northwest utility firm. Prosecutors did not criminally charge Avista but said the utility agreed to buy the turbine before a larger deal was completed — a move that aided Enron in hiding the turbine deal from its auditors.

Briefly: State At least three seized guns from PA area PORT ORCHARD — At least three guns found in the home of a Kitsap County employee accused of gun-running were from the Port Angeles area, said authorities. Trevor Hulley was arrested last week after police found more than 20 firearms in his Port Orchard home, KOMO-TV reported. Detectives believe Hulley, the lead mechanic for the Kitsap County Department of Public Works, was operating a gun-running operation that sent thousands of firearms out of state.

Detectives also seized ammunition and methamphetamine from Hulley’s home, KOMO said. Hulley can’t legally own any guns because he violated a domestic-violence protection order three years ago, according to KOMO. Detectives said they aren’t sure whom Hulley was shipping the guns to, KOMO said.

Tsunami debris GLENEDEN BEACH, Ore. — Scientists said a 30-foot boat that washed ashore on Gleneden Beach on the central Oregon coast appears to be debris from the March 2011 Japan tsunami. Oregon Fish and Wildlife Department spokesman

SPOKANE — Two people from Oregon and two from Washington have been charged with selling an ingredient for bleach online as a cure-all for arthritis, cancer and the flu. An indictment unsealed in federal court in Spokane on Tuesday charges 42-yearold Louis Daniel Smith and 38-year-old Karis Delong, both of Ashland, Ore., as well as 49-year-old Chris Olson and 50-year-old Tammy Olson of Nine Mile Falls. Prosecutors said they were involved in a business called Project GreenLife, which imported sodium chlorite from Canada, and that they sold the chemical online as a “miracle mineral

supplement.” Buyers were instructed to mix it with orange juice or another source of citric acid before drinking it. Mixing sodium chlorite with citric acid makes chlorine dioxide, a powerful bleach. It wasn’t immediately clear if anyone was injured by consuming it. Charges include conspiracy, smuggling and interstate sales of misbranded drugs. The Olsons were scheduled to appear in federal court Wednesday.

Baby born in jail EVERETT — A woman gave birth Saturday in the Snohomish County jail. Snohomish County sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ire-

ton said jail staff believe the baby was born prematurely. A medical team was called when the woman went into labor, but the baby was born before it arrived.

Medicaid coverage OLYMPIA — Washington Gov. Jay Inslee said it’s time to move ahead with expanding Medicaid coverage in the state. Inslee said Wednesday the expansion laid out under President Barack Obama’s health care law is a good deal for the state. Republicans have expressed concern that the federal government may eventually lower its commitment to the program, leaving states paying the bill. The Associated Press

Death and Memorial Notice ERMA V. BERKLEY November 18, 1922 January 21, 2013 Erma V. Berkley died peacefully of pneumonia on January 21, 2013, finally casting off the shackles of Alzheimer’s disease, which had clouded her final years. She was born November 18, 1922, near Thayer, Kansas, but moved with her family to a fruit ranch in Zillah, Washington, in 1924. She graduated as valedictorian of Zillah High School and attended business college in Yakima. Her first job was with the Horticultural Union in Yakima, where she promptly became the first woman promoted to bookkeeper. But soon the office manager, Donald W. Berkley, managed to win her heart, and the pair were married May 28, 1944. Immediately, they moved to Seattle to train as aircraft communicators. By January 1945, they were serving with the Civil Aeronautics Administration on Woody Island off Kodiak Island in Alaska. After three years of adventures there, they returned to Yakima in 1947. Their daughter, Ann, was born in 1948, and a son, James, in 1950. Erma worked as fulltime mother, leading Camp Fire and Cub Scout groups, serving in the Parent-Teacher Association, being room mother and driving her children to sports, music, club and

Mrs. Berkley church events. She also pursued stamp collecting, focusing on lighthouses, the Arctic and Alaska. In 1963, Erma returned to college, where she was soon joined by Don. The family moved to Bellingham, Washington, where Erma and Don graduated from Western Washington University in 1965. Erma graduated magna cum laude, one of the top four graduates in her class. She later earned a Master of Arts in librarianship from the University of Washington. The family moved to Port Angeles in 1965 for Erma and Don to teach. Erma began as librarian and business-education teacher at Joyce High School. In 1966, she joined Don at Port Angeles High School, where she retired as head librarian in the mid-1980s. Erma was gregarious and loving at heart, unpretentious and fun-loving.

She was active in the community, joining American Association of University Women, PEO and Retired Teachers, as well as presenting travelogues at various clubs following her world travels. Throughout her life, Erma’s Christian faith was central. She was ordained an elder in First Presbyterian Church of Port Angeles, and she consistently acted upon her Christian beliefs. Erma’s husband, Don, died in 1980, and she is predeceased by her parents, George and Lizzie Van Meter of Yakima; and her sisters, Lois Hill and Glenna Meade. Erma is survived by her daughter, Ann Hutchison of Redmond, Washington; and her son and daughter-in-law, James and Deborah Berkley of Bellevue, Washington. Erma’s grandson, Peter Berkley, lives in Tacoma, Washington, with his wife, Sarah, and their children, Elliot and Alex. Erma’s granddaughter, Mary Shadley, lives with her husband, Karson, in Oakland, California. A memorial service is planned for 1 p.m. on Saturday, February 9, at First Presbyterian Church, 139 West Eighth Street, Port Angeles, WA 98362. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be sent to Ghormley Meadow Christian Camp, 640 Lost Lake Road, Naches, WA 98937; First Presbyterian Church of Port Angeles; or the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, www.

He was born in Longview, Washington, on January 3, 1927, to John Wilson and Nellie May Parr. Tom graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1945 and joined the Navy the same year as a Seabee. He served from 1945 to 1949. After he received his honorable discharge, he worked at Peninsula Plywood for many years. Later, he worked as a longshoreman until his retirement. Tom was a former

Mr. Parr stock car racer and cofounder of the Port Angeles Speedway. He married Jacquiline Sheedy on April 28, 1946. He enjoyed traveling with his wife and spending time in Indio at their winter home. He belonged both to

the American Legion and the Eagles, and was a member of the Woodworkers of America union. He is survived by his wife, Jackie Parr of Port Angeles; sons Rick Parr and Robert (LeAnn) Parr of Port Angeles; daughter Lori (Alan) Huser of Port Orchard; 10 grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents, John and Nellie; son Thomas John Parr; brother George Parr; and sisters Shari Gosnell, Gwen Jones and Joan Price. Tom’s wish that there be no service will be honored. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society, www.; or to your favorite charity.

State weighs nonparental visitation bill

Abortion measure OLYMPIA — A Senate Committee heard public testimony on a bill that would require a teen younger than 18 to either notify her parents that she wanted an abortion or get a court order. The Senate Law & Justice Committee was packed Wednesday with supporters and opponents of the measure that would deny a pregnant minor an abortion unless she had given at least 48-hours notice to one parent or a legal guardian. Under the measure, anyone who performs an abortion on a minor without the proper notification requirements is guilty of a gross misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in local jail and/ or a $5,000 fine. According to The Guttmacher Institute, which tracks reproductive health issues, 38 states require some parental involvement in a minor’s decision to have an abortion. The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Lawmakers are considering a measure to make it easier for grandparents and others with a close relationship to a child to secure visitation rights. The bill, which was heard in the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday morning, has bipartisan support but faces opposition from social conservatives, who view it as an attack on parental rights. In 2000, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Washington state’s laws granting visitation rights to third parties when found to be in the child’s best interest infringed on the fundamental liberty of parents. Under current law, parents must be deemed unfit before most third parties can get visitation against the parents’ will. House Bill 1506 would allow courts to grant visitation when failing to do so

EDNA LILLIAN HULETT October 7, 1919 February 2, 2013 Mrs. Edna Lillian Hulett of Port Angeles passed away on February 2, 2013, at the age of 93.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Thursday, February 7, 2013 PAGE


Acts of death against U.S. citizens AN UNSIGNED AND undated Justice Department white paper, obtained by NBC News and reported on by The New York Times, “is the Cal most detailed analysis yet to Thomas come into public view regarding the Obama legal team’s views about the lawfulness of killing, without a trial, an American citizen who executive branch officials decide is an operational leader of al-Qaida or one of its allies.” The proviso is they must pose “an imminent threat of violent attack against the United States.” If “an informed, high-level official” of the government decides they are a threat, the paper says, and if capture is not feasible,

they may be killed. There hasn’t been a huge outcry from those on the left who attacked President George W. Bush for his doctrine of pre-emptive strikes against terrorists. Recall, too, the vitriol directed at Vice President Dick Cheney for defending “enhanced interrogation” techniques on suspected terrorists in order to obtain information that might prevent new attacks against Americans. The unclassified paper comes from the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel, which according to the Times provided justification for killing the radical Muslim cleric, Anwar alAwlaki. Awlaki, born in New Mexico, in an American drone strike in September 2011. The white paper cites a national right to self-defense in wartime, but goes a step further. As summarized by The New York Times: “[It] emphasizes that the decision to kill a citizen in certain circumstances is not one in which courts should play any

role, asserting that judges should not restrain the executive branch in making tactical judgments about when to use force against a senior al-Qaida leader.” Weren’t some conservatives who made the same argument during the Bush administration criticized in certain newspaper editorials, and by liberal commentators and the Hollywood elite? The white paper says that if a target poses an imminent threat to the U.S., and cannot be captured, the strike “would be conducted in a manner consistent with applicable law of war principles.” It goes on to read: “A lawful killing in self-defense is not an assassination. In the department’s view, a lethal operation conducted against a U.S. citizen whose conduct poses an imminent threat . . . would be a legitimate act of national self-defense that would not violate the assassination ban.”

The American Civil Liberties Union has been consistent with both the Bush and Obama administrations. It strongly — and wrongly in my view — criticized President Bush for his anti-terrorism policies. Reacting to the publication of the white paper, Hina Shamsi, director of the ACLU’s National Security Project, called it “a profoundly disturbing document.” “It’s hard to believe,” she added, “that it was produced in a democracy built on a system of checks and balances.” She characterized it as “a stunning overreach of executive authority.” She might have a point. One that should be debated in Congress. Appropriate committees should invite or, if necessary, subpoena the person or people who wrote the document. U.S. citizens should know what kind of action constitutes “imminent threat.” At present,

the government’s definition is a little cryptic. Given the way some criminal lawyers have “gamed” the U.S. court system to free hardened criminals, the president might be justified in this approach. But the larger question of how much authority he should be allowed to have in these circumstances and whether U.S. citizenship alone should be enough to guarantee due process when there is substantial evidence someone is involved in plots to kill other Americans is a subject worthy of congressional consideration.

Drones, torture without due process JOHN BRENNAN AND John Kiriakou worked together years ago, but their careers have dramatically diverged. Brennan is now on track to head the CIA, Amy while Kiriakou Goodman is headed off to prison. Each of their fates is tied to the socalled war on terror, which under President George W. Bush provoked worldwide condemnation. President Barack Obama rebranded the war on terror innocuously as “overseas contingency operations,” but, rather than retrench from the odious practices of his predecessor, Obama instead escalated. His promotion of Brennan and his prosecution of Kiriakou demonstrate how the recent excesses of U.S. presidential power are not transient aberrations, but the creation of a frightening new normal, where drone strikes, warrantless surveillance, assassination and indefinite detention are

conducted with arrogance and impunity, shielded by secrecy and beyond the reach of law. Kiriakou spent 14 years at the CIA as an analyst and a case officer. In 2002, he led the team that found Abu Zubaydah, alleged to be a high-ranking member of alQaida. Kiriakou was the first to publicly confirm the use of waterboarding by the CIA, in a 2007 interview with ABC’s Brian Ross. He told Ross: “At the time, I felt that waterboarding was something that we needed to do. . . . I think I’ve changed my mind, and I think that waterboarding is probably something that we shouldn’t be in the business of doing.” Kiriakou said he found the “enhanced interrogation techniques” immoral, and declined to be trained to use them. Since the interview, it has become known that Zubaydah was waterboarded at least 83 times, and that he provided no useful information as a result. He remains imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay, without charge. Kiriakou will soon start serving his 30-month prison sentence,

but not for disclosing anything about waterboarding. He pleaded guilty to disclosing the name of a former CIA interrogator to a journalist, with information that the interrogator himself had posted to a publicly available website. Meanwhile, Brennan, longtime counterterrorism advisor to Obama, is expected to receive Senate confirmation as the new director of central intelligence. I recently asked Kiriakou what he thought of Brennan: “I’ve known John Brennan since 1990. I worked directly for John Brennan twice. I think that he is a terrible choice to lead the CIA. “I think that it’s time for the CIA to move beyond the ugliness of the post-September 11th regime, and we need someone who is going to respect the Constitution and to not be bogged down by a legacy of torture.” Obama already once considered Brennan for the top CIA job, back in 2008. Brennan withdrew his nomination then under a hail of criticism for supporting the Bush-era torture policies in his various top-level intelligence positions, including head of the National Counterterrorism Center.

What a difference four years makes. With the killing of Osama bin Laden notched in his belt, Obama seems immune from counterterror criticism. Brennan is said to manage the notorious “kill list” of people that Obama believes he has the right to kill anytime, anywhere on the planet, as part of his “overseas contingency operations.” This includes the killing of U.S. citizens, without any charge, trial or due process whatsoever. Drone strikes are one way these assassinations are carried out. U.S. citizen Anwar al-Awlaki was killed in Yemen by a drone strike. Then, two weeks later, his 16-year-old son, Abdulrahman alAwlaki, was killed the same way. I asked Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, who served as chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell from 2002 to 2005, what he thought of Brennan. He told me: “What’s happening with drone strikes around the world right now is, in my opinion, as bad a development as many of the things we now condemn so readily, with 20/20 hindsight, in the George W.

Border Patrol policy called good first step New measure limits agents’ role in providing translation support BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — A new Border Patrol policy that limits an agent’s role as a language interpreter is a good first step, concerned residents told a panel of federal officials Tuesday. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which oversees the Border Patrol and falls under the auspices of the Department of Homeland Security, announced a policy Nov. 21 that states if another law enforcement agency requests assistance “based solely on a need for language translation, absent any other circumstances, those requests should be referred to a list of available local and national translation services.� The practice of agents responding for the purpose of language assistance had

Briefly . . . Toxicologist: No spike yet in pot DUIs OLYMPIA — The state toxicologist says she hasn’t seen a spike in positive blood tests for marijuana since pot became legal under Washington law. Voters last fall passed Initiative 502, allowing adults older than 21 to possess up to an ounce of marijuana. The measure, which took effect Dec. 6, set a drivingunder-the-influence limit designed to be similar to the 0.08 percent blood-alcohol content for drunken driving — 5 nanograms of active THC per milliliter of blood. State toxicologist Fiona Couper told a legislative hearing in Olympia on Wednesday that the Washington State Patrol’s toxicology lab has completed tests on all blood samples taken from drivers in December and has started on samples from last month. She said there’s no spike but noted that the law has only just taken effect. Couper said that every year, about 6,000 blood samples from drivers are submitted to the lab. About 1,000 to 1,100 of those come back positive for active THC, with the average being about 6 nanograms.

Threatening sign

Panelists Nearly two dozen questions and comments were directed to a panel led by Kareem Shora, senior adviser with the Department of Homeland Security Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties in Washington, D.C. Shora was joined on the panel by colleagues Rebekah Tosado and Amy Vance, and Rosa Melendez and Sandra Blair of the Department of Justice’s Community Relations Service. Maria Pena of Port Ange-

that they’re not learning. My job is to teach them. I feel like I can’t do my job.� Pena tried to articulate the message. “What she is conveying is an unsafe environment, which has created an inability for children to learn,� Pena said. “And it’s probably not just with our bilingual Spanish-speaking students; it is with the communities that work with them and communities that work with those communities.�

Filing grievances Shora encouraged the audience members to file grievances with the Homeland Security Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. He provided booklets containing the civil rights complaint form itself. Others in the audience backed the Border Patrol and its mission to protect the border. Shora said the meeting was a “community listening

session� on the topic of language assistance, similar to quarterly meetings that have been held in Seattle over the past year. “The reason for this meeting is to basically take what we did in Seattle for the past year and bring it here to Port Angeles to hear from directly you,� Shora said. “We want to make sure that we’re hearing from people on the ground who are directly impacted by the DHS policies.� Later in the meeting, Hoare called for more transparency. “I am not in disagreement with the mission of the Border Patrol,� she said. “But in so many circumstances, they are not doing their mission.� Shora said there were “probably a lot of factors� that led to the change in policy on language assistance. The Seattle-based Northwest Immigrant Rights Project filed a civil rights complaint against

the Department of Justice on the language-translation policy last May. Law enforcement officials in Clallam and Jefferson counties said the new policy has little or no impact on their operations and that they have other avenues for obtaining translation assistance.

Little, no impact Members of the panel were set to meet with Clallam County law enforcement agencies Wednesday. The presence of Border Patrol agents has sparked local demonstrations for and against the agency. The contingent of agents on North Olympic Peninsula has grown from four to 42 since 2006. The agents are housed in an $11.9 million headquarters in east Port Angeles that opened in December.

Officials ‘scope’ out input for park Comments taken till March 23 on stewardship plan BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Olympic National Park officials want to know how area residents think wilderness areas within the park should be managed. The first of a series of public “scoping meetings� for the Olympic Wilderness Stewardship Plan was held Monday for park representatives to gather suggestions for managing wilderness areas, which comprise 95 percent of the park. A second open house will be from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. today at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave. in Sequim. Other meetings, both from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., are set for Tuesday, Feb. 19, at the Sekiu Community Center, 42 Rice St., and Wednesday, Feb. 20, at the Department of Natural Resources Conference Room, 411 Tillicum Lane in Forks. The public is being asked to answer questions about their desires for the park as officials begin to develop a wilderness stewardship plan for the next decade or longer. The plan will be developed in accordance with the Wilderness Act of 1964 and analyzed through an environmental impact statement, or EIS, with a plan expected to be released next year. Comments will be taken until March 23.

Suggestions included improvements in trail maintenance, trails and bridges for horseback riding and staffing, as well as restricting the size of dayuse groups. One visitor suggested closing the park for two days while specially licensed hunters shoot non-native mountain goats that inhabit some of the higher-elevation areas, and another asked for the tagging and collaring of animals to be stopped.

River fishing good for now SOME NICE FISHING has been happening on the North Olympic Peninsula lately, and there’s no reason to think that the good fortune won’t continue through the weekend. Knock on Lee wood. The water Horton conditions of the West End rivers are solid — not too high, not too low. Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-6831950) in Sequim fished for steelhead on the Hoh River earlier this week and said the water was “a nice, green color.” Menkal said five fish were caught, but none of them was big enough to keep. Size hasn’t been the issue for other anglers, though. Bob Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods (360-374-6330) in Forks has seen photographic evidence of steelhead between 18 and 30 pounds being caught on the West End rivers, mostly the Hoh and Sol Duc. “There is not a ton of fish [on the rivers], but, boy, the last few days I’ve seen some big ones,” Gooding said. “If you catch a 30-pound steelhead, it’s like a hole-in-one on a par5. “You better take a good picture of it, because you ain’t catching another one — that would be like winning the lottery two weeks in a row.” These big catches were only good for photographs and memories, though. They were all wild steelhead and had to be sent back into the river from which they came. Besides, as Gooding said, “It’s good to have a fish like that in the gene pool.” Beginning Saturday, Feb. 12, and lasting until April 30, anglers can harvest one wild steelhead for the entire year. Again, that is one per year, not per day. However, Gooding noted that many anglers don’t take advantage of the wild steelhead “opening.” “Most people don’t [keep wild steelhead],” Gooding said. “Steelhead are a lot more fun to catch than they are to eat.” Gooding did recently see a nicesized hatchery steelhead that was caught in the Bogachiel River, which he said weighed about 14 pounds. The West End weather forecast for the weekend is favorable, too. It doesn’t look like there will be too much rain, and the temperatures should be in the mid- to high-40s. The bad news is those irresponsible and dastardly seals are still ruining everything on the Bogachiel and Calawah rivers.

Razor digs More razor clam digs have been approved by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife after marine toxin tests showed the clams on the selected beaches are safe to eat. The digs start today at Twin Harbors beach and run through Tuesday with four beaches included in the digs. Long Beach will also be open for digging from Friday through Sunday, and Copalis and Mocrocks will be open Friday and Saturday. Once again, Kalaloch is not one of the participating beaches, which is no surprise. Here is the schedule for the digs, along with evening low tides and beaches: ■ Thursday: 4:22 p.m., -0.5 feet — Twin Harbors. ■ Friday: 5:11 p.m., -0.9 feet — Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Copalis and Mocrocks. ■ Saturday: 5:56 p.m., -1.0 feet — Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Copalis and Mocrocks.

PT clinches playoffs Redskins hold off PA Riders BY LEE HORTON PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Port Townsend knows better than to even risk finishing in a tie when its postseason life depends on where it sits in the league standings. The Redskins took fate into their own hands Tuesday night by edging Port Angeles 48-42 and securing a seventh-place finish in the Olympic League. The two teams were tied for seventh coming into the game with the Roughriders holding the advantage by beating the Redskins earlier in the season. Port Townsend needed to finish in the top seven to advance. Now, Port Townsend (4-11, 7-12) will play a yet-to-be-determined Nisqually League opponent Saturday at 5:15 p.m. in a district tournament play-in game. “We knew we had to win or go home,” Redskins coach Tom Webster said of Tuesday’s game. “So, we probably had a lot more riding on this game than [Port Angeles].” Technically, Port Townsend did have more to gain from a win, but the Roughriders seemed just as dedicated to earning the victory. After trailing by seven at halftime, Port Angeles outscored the Redskins 15-6 in the third quarter to take a 33-31 lead into the final period. In the fourth quarter, both teams desperately went after every rebound, and it wasn’t until the final minute when Port Townsend finally pulled away with five free throws from Brian LeMaster, Cody Russell and Paul Spaltenstein. LeMaster led all scorers with 13 points, despite playing on a

Riders claim league crown PT claims 1A playoff berth despite loss PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — Maddy Hinrichs, Shayla Northern and Krista Johnson all scored in double figures as the Port Angeles girls basketball team clinched the Olympic League championship outright Tuesday night. Hinrichs led the way with 16 points as the Roughriders held off Port Townsend 51-36. The 2A Riders (14-1 in league, 14-4 overall) earn a bye in the first round of the district tournament. They will open tourney play Thursday, Feb. 14. The 1A Redskins, meanwhile, advance to a playoff pigtail game Saturday night because they will finish in the top seven in the 2A Olympic League. Port Townsend will host the No. 4 1A team from the Nisqually League at 7 p.m. on Saturday. Both the Riders and Redskins have one game left in Olympic League pay. “We hope to finish the league season strongly with a win Friday against a tough Olympic team — which beat North Kitsap [Tuesday night] to maintain their tie for second place with Bremerton,” Port Angeles coach Michael Poindexter said. The Riders will play at Olympic (12-3, 15-4) in Silverdale starting at 7 p.m. on Friday. The Redskins (6-9, 10-9), meanwhile, conclude the regular season tonight at Sequim (5-10, 7-12).

Guard trio scores well On Tuesday, Northern netted 13 points and Johnson added 12 for the Riders who led 16-8 after one quarter and by a commanding 42-25 going into the final period. “The guard trio of Maddy Hinrichs, Shayla Northern and Krista Johnson led a balanced scoring effort,” Poindexter said.

“As an entire team, we executed our offense as well as we have all season.” Port Townsend handled the Riders’ full-court pressure well, Poindexter said. “But I was happy, on the whole, with our half-court defense. Our one big downfall was putting them on the freethrow line way too often.” The Redskins were 12 of 28 from the line. “We had a couple of players battling illness and I was impressed with our team unity amidst the adversity of depth issues and foul trouble,” Poindexter said.

“For Port Townsend, Codi Hallinan had a very nice overall game, and Jewel Johnson was again difficult for us to contain on a full-court basis,” he added. Hallinan led the Redskins with 13 points. “We feel that these last two league games this week are our last opportunity to polish our game in preparation for the district tournament,” Poindexter said. “Our coaching staff was very pleased at how well we fixed some of the problems that plagued us in the game against Sequim last week.” TURN

Dawgs’ 2013 class highlighted by WRs Sarkisian optimistic due to top trio of receivers THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — Steve Sarkisian believes that Washington’s recruiting class makes up in quality what it might lack in numbers. The Huskies signed 22 players to national letters of intent Wednesday, a smaller number than the typical 25. Two players are already on campus: safety Trevor Walker out of Arlington, Texas, and quarterback Troy Williams out of Los Angeles, who could end up becoming the individual star of the class. Even though it wasn’t a full class and lacked the star power of recent years when the Huskies landed the likes of Shaq Thompson, Kasen Williams and Austin Seferian-Jenkins, the overall depth could be the best since Sarkisian arrived. “I believe this class is in

the upper echelon of our conference in a year where our conference did a really nice job of recruiting,” Sarkisian said. “But I believe this class is right up there with the best ones in our conference.” The highlight for Sarkisian was the trio of wide receivers Washington put together. The Huskies landed 6-foot-4 Darrell Daniels out of Pittsburg, Calif.; 6-foot-3 Damore’ea Stringfellow out of Paris, Calif.; and 5-foot11 speedster John Ross from Long Beach, Calif. Sarkisian said he would put that trio of receivers up against any other group of receivers that signed with schools Wednesday. “We felt like we needed a group that could come in here and score touchdowns, not just in the red zone but from a distance,” Sarkisian said.

Signing Day “We didn’t want three of the same guys. I can honestly sit here and say these are the three wide receivers we targeted that we felt were the top three in this class that could have an impact on our program.” Washington also made a commitment to seek more length and speed on defense in an effort to help stop the spread offenses that have chewed up the Huskies in recent years.

Bigger on defense That desire to get bigger bodies on defense was reinforced when Sarkisian got a chance to attend some Seattle Seahawks practices last summer before the Huskies season began. Watching Seattle’s longer linebackers and bigger defensive backs made finding some similar bodies for the Huskies a priority. Cornerbacks Patrick Enewally (6-1), Jermaine Kelly (6-2) and Kevin King

“What they have on that defense is length and that ability to run and cover ground, and that is something we have been aspiring to, and I think we have addressed a lot of that. It’s one thing to want it, it’s another thing of what are you doing about it to try and get there and I think we’ve done that.” STEVE SARKISIAN Washington head coach (6-2) all fit the mold Sarkisian wanted. Among the linebackers, Sarkisian said 6-1, 210pound Keishawn Bierria might be the most talented even if he’s the smallest of the four signed. “What they have on that defense is length and that ability to run and cover ground and that is something we have been aspiring to and I think we have addressed a lot of that,” Sarkisian said. “It’s one thing to want it, it’s another thing of what are you doing about it to try and get there and I think we’ve done that.” Sarkisian was also pleased with what Wash-

ington got on the offensive line, highlighted by Dane Crane, who projects as a center in college. He’s equally hopeful that the four defensive line signings can help the Huskies’ pass rush. That group was led by defensive end Joe Mathis, a second-team all-state selection in California who capped his year playing in the U.S. Army all-American Bowl. Washington made a late run at athletic twins Tyree and Tyrell Robinson from San Diego, who ended up signing with Oregon. They also lost out on defensive end Daeshon Hall out of Lancaster, Texas.

Hall had given a verbal commitment to Washington, but ended up signing with Texas A&M on Wednesday. Those decisions made the Huskies’ national ranking slip, depending on the organization. had the Huskies No. 11 in the country entering the day but dropped them to 13th. had Washington 18th and ranked them 19th. Sarkisian said a handful of players in this class will likely play as freshmen, but the depth is in place where the Huskies can redshirt where needed. “There are not going to be too many of these guys that are going to have to come in and play like in the past,” Sarkisian said. “We’re at a point now where redshirting guys is becoming a luxury for us, that we can reap the benefits of their development in the end. I think we’ll be able to do that more times than not with the guys in this class.”

LaCenter 46, Forks 43 LaCENTER — The Spartans lost a heartbreaker in a district crossover game at higher-seeded LaCenter on Tuesday night. “Overall, I’m very proud of how the Lady Spartans finished their season,” Forks coach Al Scheibner said. “To only have three wins and go to third-place LaCenter and give them a

The Spartans had a 32-27 lead going into the final period. Raben led Forks with 20 points while Katie Whitten sank a game-high 25 for LaCenter. “It was fun watching two point guards go at it for 32 minutes,” Scheibner said. “The sophomore Katie Whitten from LaCenter, and our senior Jillian Raben, both guarded each other and it was a fun matchup to watch. “Once again Jillian provided our scoring in critical moments to keep us in the game. “Sassy Price, who was sick with the flu, scored all of her points in the second half to give us an opportunity to win. “Casey Williams and Terra Sheriff-Penn also contributed in the second half.

Cougars sign 4-star QB Bruggman Horton: Fish THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SPOKANE — Washington State signed its top recruit, quarterback Tyler Bruggman, after a bit of drama Wednesday. Various media reports said Arizona State made a late pitch to the four-star prospect from Phoenix.

Washington State coach Mike Leach said he did not know if that was true, but added he had little doubt that the 6-foot-2, 202-pound Bruggman would sign with the Cougars. “All I know is at midnight I got a lasagna recipe from Mrs. Bruggman,” Leach said.

Leach said Bruggman’s mother made the best meal he had on the recruiting trail this year. Tyler Bruggman is pretty impressive too, Leach said. “He’s very efficient,” Leach said. “The ball comes off his hands quickly.” Washington State’s only

four-star recruit is highly intelligent and has great leadership skills, Leach said. WSU announced the addition of 24 players on Wednesday, including high school recruits and junior college transfers. Five of the players were already enrolled in classes.

Boys: Redskins to postseason needed to finish seventh or tied for seventh in the 2A Olympic League in order to be eligible for Saturday’s play-in game. The way Webster looked at it, there was no way for the Redskins to finish in a tie if they fell to the Riders on Tuesday. A win would give the two North Olympic Peninsula schools identical league records, but Port Angeles would have a sweep of the season series. “In no league is that a tie,” Webster said. The Redskins will host league-leading Sequim (141, 16-3) tonight in a game

Try program for help with ‘tax thing’ IN DEFERENCE TO and in recognition of the simple fact that this Thursday exercise is called Help Line, do you suppose we ought to, at least occasionally, do something genuinely helpful? Me, too. So we will. Think taxes. Well, OK, think anything you want, but the fact remains that in the not-too-distant future, many of us are going to have to think about taxes, which means many of us are going to want to think about TaxAide. We do this every year because taxes (specifically income taxes) happen to us every year.


thing, and yes, we should be Harvey grateful. Here’s the deal: They’re trained to help most of us lowto middleincome taxpayers. If you’re the CEO of a multinational corporation, go to the back of the line, but for the rest of us — for most of us — these are the people we want to Volunteers go see. Tax-Aide is the good guy.

Phone 360-780-2287 to make an appointment. ■ At the Sekiu Community Center, 11 Rice St., on March 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. No appointment needed; just show up. ■ At the Port Townsend Community Center, 620 Tyler St., on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Phone 360-385-9007 to make an appointment. ■ At the Tri-Area Community Center, 10 West Valley Road, Chimacum, on Mondays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Wednesdays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Appointment needed? Yes, so phone 360-732-4822. I know what you’re thinking because I know what I’m thinking: With the “fiscal cliff” and debt ceilings and Lord only knows what else, how bad has the whole “tax thing” gotten? Answer: Not much. Well, at least not much worse. If you’re single and make more than $250,000 per year or are married and make more than $300,000 per year, things have changed. For the rest of us, not really. The tax rates are the same,

the capital gains and dividend rates are the same, the Child Tax Credit and Earned Income Tax Credit, etc., are the same. Sales taxes are still deductible if you itemize, and there’s still some “relief” for folks who lost a home to foreclosure, etc. So, really, for most of us, this year looks a lot like last year — at least tax-wise.

Give them thanks Now, remember, we call this Help Line, not Tax Line, so this is as far as I’m going with this topic because I know when I’m out of my league. But when you show up for help from these Tax-Aide folks, feel free to thank them — profusely. We are getting our taxes done. All they’re getting is a migraine.

DEAR ABBY: Thank you for the compassion you showed “Wants to Be a Mom,” the 15-year-old girl considering motherhood with her nearly 18-year-old boyfriend. Having lost her dad at an early age and having a mother who prefers drugs over her daughter must have made this young lady feel very unwanted. I understand why she might think a baby would give her the love she’s missing. I applaud you for not judging her but instead kindly helping her understand the consequences of her potential actions. I wish her the best and hope she’ll have the wisdom to realize how important an education will be. With luck, in a few years, she’ll be a young adult ready to assume the responsibilities of being a parent. Linda in Michigan

Dear Abby: At 15, I had the first of my five daughters. By the time I was 20, I was raising the babies by myself. Would I do it all over again? Not in this lifetime! “Wants,” your boyfriend is immature. He should finish school and get a job before thinking about children. You are only 15 and have your best years ahead. One thing that never crossed my mind was how I would be able to support my child without an education. I learned the hard way. If you and your grandma aren’t getting along, it’s up to you to change your attitude. Grandma has more experience than you do in this world.

Post office seeks to save billions by cutting service Postal boss: Our condition urgent THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — The Postal Service said Wednesday that it plans to cut back to five-day-a-week deliveries for everything except packages to stem its financial losses in a world radically reordered by the Internet. “Our financial condition is urgent,” declared Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe. But Congress has voted in the past to bar the idea of eliminating Saturday delivery, and his announcement immediately drew protests from some lawmakers. The plan, which is to take effect in August, also brought vigorous objections from farmers, the letter carriers’ union and others. The Postal Service, which suffered a $15.9 billion loss in the past budget

year, said it expected to save $2 billion annually with the Saturday cutback. Mail such as letters and magazines would be affected, but delivery of packages of all sizes would con- Donahoe tinue six days a week. The plan accentuates one of the agency’s strong points: Package delivery has increased by 14 percent since 2010, officials say, while the delivery of letters and other mail has plummeted.

More packages shipped Email has reduced the mailing of paper letters, but online purchases have increased package shipping, forcing the Postal Service to adjust to customers’ new habits. “Things change,” Donahoe said. But change is not the biggest factor in the agency’s predicament — Congress is.

The majority of the service’s red ink comes from a 2006 law forcing it to pay about $5.5 billion a year into future retiree health benefits, something no other agency does. Without that payment — $11.1 billion in a two-year installment last year — and related labor expenses, the mail agency sustained an operating loss of $2.4 billion for the past fiscal year, lower than the previous year. Congress also has stymied the service’s efforts to close some post offices in small towns. Under the new plan, mail would be delivered to homes and businesses only from Mondays through Fridays but would still be delivered to post office boxes Saturdays. Post offices now open Saturdays would remain open. Over the past several years, the Postal Service has advocated shifting to a five-day delivery schedule — and it repeatedly but unsuccessfully has appealed to Congress to approve the move.

Burning oil fouls up converter Dear Doctor: My dad recently purchased a used 2002 Nissan Sentra. The “check engine” light came, and he brought it to the local garage. They diagnosed it to be the catalytic converter, so they unplugged the decoder, and the “check engine” light went out. What’s your opinion on this? Mike Dear Mike: Have the shop monitor the rear oxygen sensor and see if the value stays around half a volt. If the rear oxygen sensor is changing like the front oxygen sensor, then there is a problem in the catalytic converter. There have been some oil-consumption problems with some Nissan four-cylinder engines. The oil being burned does contaminate the catalytic converter. You can check with the dealer to see if this car was under any extended recalls. They can run the VIN number at no charge to you.

Rebuild or buy tranny? Dear Doctor: I need your advice on a transmission issue with my 2003 Volvo S80 T6. 6080 Home Furnishings

THE AUTO DOC With a tight budDamato get, what would be the most advantageous thing to do: rebuild it or buy a used transmission? I’ve seen used transmissions that come with a one-year warranty. Guy Dear Guy: I would consult with the shop that is going to work on the car. We use a lot of used transmissions, and yes, they do come with a warranty. The warranty coverage will vary. The salvage company we use offers anything from a 30-day to one-year warranty, parts only and parts plus labor. The used units are usually half the cost of a rebuilt unit. This decision will be up to you and the shop technician.

1997 Dodge Caravan 3.3liter V-6. The “check engine” light came on, and the code was P0401 Low EGR Flow. The mechanic replaced the parts in the EGR system and said the system is working as designed. He said the computer may have to be reprogrammed. What are your thoughts? Martin Dear Martin: I see this problem often. Just because there’s a fault code for a particular system does not necessarily mean the problem is in that circuit or system. In your case, the problem could be a slow (lazy) front oxygen sensor. A normal operating oxygen-sensor voltage will change as soon as the EGR opens and closes. A lazy front oxygen sensor is operating fast enough not to set an oxygen-sensor code but not fast enough to see the EGR valve opening and closing as it should.

Do you consider the aftermarket installations for heated seats to be reliable, and do they function as well as original equipment? Doug Dear Doug: I’ve been installing aftermarket heated-seat elements them for 22-plus years. We use a very reliable product from a company called Check Chart. I would recommend the high-and-low model, not the multi-temperature units. The cost for two seats should be less than $500 installed. In some vehicles, the seats don’t have to be removed. Just pull back on both the seat back and bottom, install the heating elements, mount the small, round rocker-style switch in the plastic seat trim, run a power and ground wire to a key on power supply, and the job is done.
