Death of orca still a mystery

Closure comes to POW bracelet Sequim woman traces its owner to Utah family

Mammal washes up dead at Dungeness


SEQUIM — Every time the phone rings, Linda Benson gets nervous and asks herself: “Is this going to be the call?” The 76-year-old Sequim woman this week is anticipating a response from the daughter of Vincent Duncan Monroe, a Navy commander whose plane was shot down over North Vietnam on May 18, 1968. Benson has “It finally brought had a Vietnamprisoner-ofan end to over 30 era war bracelet years of searching with Monroe’s name on it since for him.” 1972. LINDA BENSON “I intended to of writing POW’s sister wear it until he came home or his body was released, at least, back to his family,” she said, although she had to stop wearing it after developing a serious rash. Monroe’s remains were buried in Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia 10 years after he became a POW; Benson discovered he had died about a decade ago. After a 30-year search for Monroe and his survivors, Benson recently discovered that his sister was living in Salt Lake City. She phoned the woman Dec. 29 to say she wanted to send the ornamental band to the airman’s family.

‘We cried’ “I called the sister, and we talked, and we cried,” Benson said. “The sister felt it should go to his daughter.” She added: “It was a wonderful conversation.” Benson obtained the daughter’s Florida address and sent her a letter Friday. “It finally brought an end to over 30 years of searching for him,” she said. Benson doesn’t know whether the daughter will call, email, “snail mail” a


SEQUIM — Results of tests conducted Tuesday in Seattle to determine why a newborn orca washed up dead on Dungeness Spit on Monday are expected in two to three weeks, said wildlife biologists. The whale underwent a necropsy and DNA testing at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Western Regional Center in Seattle’s Sand Point to find out why it died and if it was born alive, said Sue Thomas, wildlife biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Department, and Brad Hanson, wildlife biologist for NOAA’s Northwest Fisheries Center. Hanson recovered the 7½-foot-long male calf after it was reported washed ashore by keepers at the New Dungeness Lighthouse and took it to Seattle on Monday night. Hanson said the whale likely had been dead for a day or two.

Little by little, Benson pieced together bits of information about Monroe while struggling to locate his family. At times, it felt like “hitting a dead wall,” she said. According to the POW Network, Monroe was flying alongside Cmdr. Charlie N. James Jr. in Reconnaissance Attack

Squadron 11 — based aboard the USS Kitty Hawk — when their aircraft was shot near Vinh Son. A pilot in another plane radioed Monroe to confirm that he and James knew they had been hit. “Yes, they did,” Benson said. “That was the last contact they had with him.” TURN



Lighthouse keeper Arthur Moore said he spotted the orca on a crest on the Spit about a quarter-mile from the lighthouse while scanning for hikers on the Spit with his binoculars Monday morning. “I saw something washed up down there. At the time, I thought it was probably a seal,” Moore said. Fellow keeper Marty Lamarr walked down the Spit to investigate. They then called Fish and Wildlife agents from the Washington Maritime National Wildlife Refuge Complex at Sequim. “We figured it was a killer whale once we got down there,” Moore said. The keepers couldn’t find any evidence of trauma that may have killed the orca. “There weren’t any propeller marks or anything,” Moore said. Thomas said a crew of four wildlife agents went out to retrieve the orca at about 2 p.m. They lifted the body of the 300-pound orca into the trailer of an ATV and drove it off the Spit before putting it in the back of Hanson’s pickup truck.

Newsmakers Celebrity scoop ■ By The Associated Press

Action figures for ‘Django’ draw protest SOME ARE QUESTIONING the appropriateness of slavery-era action figures tied to Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained.” A line of figures of the movie’s main characters are currently on sale online, made by toymaker NECA in partnership with the Weinstein Co. On Tuesday, Najee Ali, director of the advocacy group Project Islamic Hope, held a news conference with other Los Angeles black community leaders calling for the removal of the toys from the market. Ali calls the action figures “a slap in the face of our ancestors” that “trivializes the horrors of slavery.” Action figures were made by manufacturer Hot Toys for Tarantino’s last film, “Inglourious Basterds.” The Weinstein Co. and NECA didn’t immediately comment Tuesday.

‘Idol’ feud ongoing Five minutes into their season-opening news conference and the new team at “American Idol” were having their first disagreement — about their disagreements. Then Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj kept it going. “We’re professionals. Have you ever had an argu-

ment with someone you’ve worked with?” Minaj said after repeated questions Tuesday about her reported feud with fellow judge Carey. “This was sort of onesided,” interjected Carey, wearing a queenly smile. “No, it wasn’t,” snapped back Minaj. Fox network executive Mike Darnell was asked by reporters with the Television Critics Association if the clash was authentic. He said there was a lot of musical passion within the group, which also includes country star Keith Urban and returning judge Randy Jackson, and that triggered disagreements. “The fighting is what it is,” Carey said at one point. “This is ‘American Idol.’ It’s bigger than all that. It’s bigger than some stupid trumped-up thing.” “American Idol” begins its 12th season today facing questions once again about its ability to endure as a toprated show, especially given the increasingly crowded talent show landscape that includes NBC’s hit “The Voice.” All the shows are down in the ratings, Darnell noted.

Mr. Cramer died Monday at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore from complications of lung Mr. Cramer cancer, said in 1979 his agent, Philippa Brophy. Mr. Cramer lived with his wife, Joan, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Mr. Cramer won the 1979 Pulitzer Prize for international reporting from the Middle East while with the Philadelphia Inquirer. His other notable work included a best-selling biography of New York Yankees great Joe DiMaggio; an influential magazine profile of another baseball star, Ted Williams; and a critically acclaimed, behind-the-scenes account of the 1988 U.S. presidential race, What It Takes: The Way to the White House. Mr. Cramer was known for an in-depth reporting style that involved spending significant time with the subjects he profiled and recreating scenes with vivid color and dialogue.

Looking Back From the files of The Associated Press

TODAY IS WEDNESDAY, Jan. 9, the ninth day of 2013. There are 356 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: ■ On Jan. 9, 1931, Bobbi Trout and Edna May Cooper broke an endurance record for female aviators as they returned to Mines Field in Los Angeles after flying a Curtiss Robin monoplane continuously for 122 hours and 50 minutes. On this date: ■ In 1793, Frenchman Jean Pierre Blanchard, using a hot-air balloon, flew between Philadelphia and Woodbury, N.J. ■ In 1861, Mississippi became the second state to secede from the Union, the same day the Star of

the West, a merchant vessel bringing reinforcements and supplies to federal troops at Fort Sumter, S.C., retreated because of artillery fire. ■ In 1968, the Surveyor 7 space probe made a soft landing on the moon, marking the end of the American series of unmanned explorations of the lunar surface. ■ In 1972, reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes, speaking by telephone from the Bahamas to reporters in Hollywood, said a purported autobiography of him by Clifford Irving was a fake. ■ In 1987, the White House released a January 1986 memorandum prepared for President Ronald Reagan by Lt. Col. Oliver L. North showing a link between U.S. arms

sales to Iran and the release of American hostages in Lebanon. ■ In 1993, the two owners of a fast-food restaurant in Palatine, Ill., and five employees were found shot and stabbed to death. Two suspects were arrested in May 2002; both were convicted in separate trials and sentenced to life in prison. ■ In 1997, a Comair commuter plane crashed 18 miles short of the Detroit Metropolitan Airport, killing all 29 people onboard. ■ Ten years ago: U.N. weapons inspectors said there was no “smoking gun” to prove Iraq had nuclear, chemical or biological weapons, but they demanded that Baghdad provide private access to

scientists and fresh evidence to back its claim that it had destroyed its weapons of mass destruction. ■ Five years ago: President George W. Bush, on his first visit to Israel as president, warned Iran of “serious consequences” if it meddled again with U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf. ■ One year ago: Iranian state radio reported that a court had convicted former U.S. Marine Amir Mirzaei Hekmati of working for the CIA and sentenced him to death. The Obama administration and his family deny Hekmati was a CIA spy. No. 2 Alabama beat No. 1 LSU 21-0 for the first shutout in BCS title game history.

A3 Briefly: Nation Senator calls for delay in CIA confirmation WASHINGTON — A Republican senator is calling for a delay in confirming President Barack Obama’s pick for CIA director until the administration provides answers on the deadly Sept. 11 assault in Libya that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. Sen. Lindsey Graham, a member of the Armed Services Committee, said Tuesday his support for delaying the nomination was no Graham reflection on John Brennan, whom Obama tapped Monday, but rather the only way to get information on the raid on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi. “The stonewalling on Benghazi by the Obama administration must come to an end,” Graham said in a statement. Republicans have argued that the administration tried to downplay that the attack was an act of terrorism in the weeks before the November election. “This ever-changing story should be resolved,” said the South Carolina lawmaker, who is up for re-election next year.

Tax filing season WASHINGTON — The

Internal Revenue Service says late changes to federal tax laws should mean only a short delay for most taxpayers to file their 2012 returns. The agency said Tuesday that more than 120 million taxpayers — about 80 percent of filers — should be able to start filing their federal returns Jan. 30. Others will have to wait until late February or March to file because the agency needs time to update and test its systems. Those who will have to wait include people claiming residential energy credits, depreciation of property or general business credits. The filing season had been slated to start Jan. 22 but was delayed because of the big tax package passed Jan. 1.

Obama inauguration WASHINGTON — The widow of slain civil rights activist Medgar Evers will deliver the invocation at President Barack Obama’s second inauguration Jan. 21. The Presidential Inaugural Committee announced Tuesday that Myrlie Evers-Williams would deliver the prayer. It comes 50 years after her husband was gunned down in the driveway of his Mississippi home. The inauguration falls on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Evers-Williams is a distinguished scholar at Alcorn State University in Lorman, Miss. She was chairwoman of the NAACP from 1995 to 1998. The Associated Press

Briefly: World U.S. now saying Iran is behind hostage photos WASHINGTON — Two years after a hostage video and photographs of retired FBI agent Robert Levinson raised the possibility the missing man was being held by terrorists, U.S. officials now see the government of Iran behind them, intelligence officials said. Levinson, a private investigator, disappeared in 2007 on the Iranian island of Kish. The Iranian government has repeatedly denied knowing anything about his disappearance, and the disturbing video and photos that Levinson’s family received in 2010 and ’11 seemed to give credence to the idea. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in March 2011 that Levinson was being held somewhere in South Asia. Two years later, with the investigation stalled, the consensus now among some U.S. officials involved in the case is that despite years of denials, Iran’s intelligence service was almost certainly behind the 54-second video.

Mexico City’s mayor said the government would launch a new program to spay and neuter the hundreds of thousands of dogs who wander the city, sending 25 mobile surgical units to neighborhoods where residents would be encouraged to take advantage of free sterilization for their pets.

Australian wildfires

COOMA, Australia — Firefighters battled scores of wildfires Tuesday in southeastern Australia as authorities evacuated national parks and warned that hot, dry and windy conditions had raised the threat to its highest alert level. Temperatures soared to 113 degrees in some areas.

WASHINGTON — America set an off-the-charts heat record in 2012. A brutal combination of a widespread drought and a mostly absent winter pushed the average annual U.S. temperature last year up to 55.32 degrees, the government announced Tuesday. That’s a full degree warmer

than the old record set in 1998. Breaking temperature records by an entire degree is unprecedented, scientists say. Normally, records are broken by a tenth of a degree or so.

‘Off the chart’ “It was off the chart,” said Deke Arndt, head of climate monitoring at the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville,

N.C., which calculated the temperature records. Last year, he said, will go down as “a huge exclamation point at the end of a couple decades of warming.” The data center’s figures for the entire world won’t come out until next week. But through the first 11 months of 2012, the world was on pace to have its eighth warmest year on record.

Jaguar cubs bring new genes THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MILWAUKEE — Two jaguar cubs are providing more than just cooing fans for Milwaukee’s zoo. The spotted brothers are introducing new genes to the endangered species’ captive population because, unlike most zoo babies, their father was born in the wild. The blue-eyed cubs, born Nov. 13, don’t officially have names yet, but keepers at the Milwaukee County Zoo are calling them “Gaps” and “Dots,” due to the markings on their heads. Stacey Johnson, American Zoo and Aquarium Association’s coordinator of the jaguar species survival plan, said it’s rare for zoos’ reproductive programs to have access to animals born in the wild. “They are bringing in a new inflow of genes that will help sustain the population over next 100 years,” he said. He noted that the cubs — the

THE BOY SCOUTS of America said it will release two decades of sex-abuse allegation files to attorneys after the California Supreme Court refused a bid to keep the records confidential. The court last Thursday rejected an appeal to halt the release of files from 1991 and later that contain allegations of molestation by Scout leaders, the Los Angeles Times said. A Santa Barbara County court ruled last year that the files must be turned over to attorneys representing a former Scout who claims a leader molested him in 2007, when he was 13. That leader later was convicted of felony child endangerment.

Prosecutors, Chicago police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office are trying to unravel precisely how Urooj Khan, 46, was killed. Khan’s death July 20 initially was ruled a result of natural causes. But a relative’s request for a deeper look resulted in the startling conclusion months later that Kahn was killed with the poison as he was about to collect $425,000 in winnings.

Elk hunt trims herd to 30 members BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — Hunters supervised by wildlife officials who had issued special licenses shot four elk cows from the Dungeness herd of Roosevelt elk last weekend in a routine measure taken to protect crops, a state agent said. That reduced the herd to the smallest it has been in its recorded history, said Tim Cullinan, wildlife coordinator for the Point No Point Treaty Council. Hunts routinely are done if elk cause extensive damage to crops, said Sgt. Eric Anderson, an enforcement officer with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife. Elk feeding on and walking through cropland did about $20,000 in damage to agricultural crops on a piece of property in the past year, Anderson said.

When damage becomes that great, special licenses are issued to hunt a few elk to convince the larger herd that the area is dangerous and a place to avoid, Anderson said Monday. Saturday’s hunt brings the number to 10 elk killed due to the herd’s incursion into agricultural properties in the past year, Anderson said. Cullinan said the hunt brings the elk cow herd down to about 30 members. Cullinan said he thought the current size of the herd is about the smallest the herd has ever been. The Dungeness herd of Roosevelt elk — the largest elk in the world — only had about 40-45 members as of Jan. 1, and a loss of the cows makes a difference in their management, Cullinan said. Anderson said the property owner who reported $20,000 in damage took the

meat from two of the elk in lieu of cash damages from the state, and the other two were sent to the Lower Elwha and Port Gamble Klallam tribes. Claims can be made to the state for large amounts of elk damage, Anderson said.

Concerned neighbors A Sequim resident saw the hunt Saturday, and it worried her. C.J. Rankin said she passed the herd at about 8 a.m. Saturday at Schmuck Road and Port Williams Road, and saw a man in a pickup truck following the herd. “They were very agi-

tated,” Rankin said. When she returned at 10 a.m., several dead elk were being loaded into the beds of a flatbed truck and two pickup trucks. “I slowed down, and they just waved me through,” she said. Rankin said she was upset by the way the herd was treated during the hunt, about their distress. Anderson said he understood her concern about the elk. The area manager is very good at making sure the occasional elk removals are quiet and as much out of public view as possible, Anderson said.

Orca: Transient PDA: ‘So much has happened’ CONTINUED FROM A1 “The good news is, it was very fresh, so they could get a lot of information about it,” Thomas said. In addition to the cause of death, the NOAA tests are intended to show whether the whale was a passing transient orca or a member of the Puget Sound-native southern-resident community, which was listed as an endangered species in 2005. If the whale was a resident, said Howard Garrett, director of the nonprofit Orca Network, it could produce valuable information about the viability of the resident pods. “As far as the health of the population, we very much want all the information we can get about their reproductive success,” Garrett said.

n addition to the cause of death, the NOAA tests are intended to show whether the whale was a passing transient orca or a member of the Puget Soundnative southernresident community.


The Orca Network, said Garrett, received reports of a pod of resident killer whales off San Juan Island over the weekend. A group of transients also was reported off the coast of Victoria over the same time frame.

Universities seek bargain with state Public schools want compromise over money for higher education THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public university presidents are offering to compromise with the state Legislature over money for higher education. The six presidents of public four-year colleges said they will agree to freeze tuition for the next two years if the state infuses $225 million into their budgets. The proposal comes two weeks after outgoing Gov. Chris Gregoire set a goal of no tuition increases in her proposed state budget. Her proposal included no additional money for the six public four-year schools. That budget was â&#x20AC;&#x153;full of assumptions that are not likely to happen,â&#x20AC;? state Rep. Ross Hunter, chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee, told The Seattle Times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do I think it will be difficult to find $225 million? Yes,â&#x20AC;? Hunter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But can we continue to

do this long-term destruction of the higher-ed system? No.â&#x20AC;? The state already is predicting a $900 million shortfall for the next biennium, and a Supreme Court ruling concerning money for the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s K-12 education system will force the Legislature to find an estimated $1 billion to invest in public schools during this session. Washington schools have raised tuition by doubledigit amounts each year over the past two biennia. A year of undergraduate tuition at the University of Washington now costs nearly double what it did five years ago.

More from state Western Washington University President Bruce Shepard said Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s university leaders want the state to return to a time when 50 percent of the cost to educate undergraduates came from the state and 50

percent from tuition dollars. Currently, nearly 70 percent of the cost comes from tuition and 30 percent from the state budget. The state budgeted about $1 billion for the six four-year schools for 20112013, about the same amount it budgeted for higher education in 19891991. An extra $225 million in cash would bring the state contribution to about what it was in 2009. Tristan Hanon, director of legislative affairs for the Associated Students of Washington State University, said students have been heartened by the university presidentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; conversations with lawmakers this fall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a tough fight, but I think a lot of legislators are starting to realize that this trend of disinvestment needs to stop,â&#x20AC;? he said. Other public four-year schools are Washington State University, Central Washington University, Eastern Washington University and Evergreen State College.

Twenty-two years ago, Levy, then 50, met a group of tango musicians who were traveling through Seattle. At the time, he played the concertina and figured he was too old to take up the bandoneon. The instrument looks like an accordion but is, Levy said, a pump organ for the lap. But those traveling musicians insisted that he try it, and by 1991, Levy was flying down to Buenos Aires. In 2005, he retired from his medical practice and rented an apartment there.

Death and Memorial Notice MARY JUDITH ROGSTAD Mary Judith Rogstad passed away in Aberdeen, Washington, where she lived for the last 25 years. She was 74. She was born to Franklin and Phyllis (Thomson) Spinharney in Cherokee, Iowa. Judy and her family lived in Storm Lake, Iowa, until they moved to Boise, Idaho, when she was a teenager. In Boise, she attended St. Theresa’s Academy. On June 21, 1956, Judy married the love of her life Ronald K. Rogstad in Boise. He survives her at the family home in Aberdeen. From Boise, they moved to Moscow, Idaho, where she worked at the University of Idaho in the student union building, while Ron completed his chemical engineering degree. Judy and Ron had their two daughters during this time.

Mrs. Rogstad After graduation, they moved to Port Angeles, where their two sons were born. Judy lived in Port Angeles for 21 years, and while there, she was active in the Queen of Angels Catholic Church, Clallam County Republican Club, the Symphony league, Olympic Memorial Hospital Foundation and the PTA. She also volunteered to model at several charity fashion shows. When Ron was pro-

moted to a position with Rayonier in Vancouver, British Columbia, they lived there for eight more years. Judy had developed many close friends with whom she especially enjoyed their long exercise walks around Stanley Park. In 1988, Judy and Ron moved back to the U.S. when Ron became the vice president of NW Pulp and Chemical Operations for Rayonier. They relocated to Aberdeen. When Ron retired in 1994, they decided to remain in Aberdeen primarily because of all the close friendships they had developed. While in Aberdeen, Judy was active in the Feed the Hungry program at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, the Aberdeen Clothing Bank and was a longtime member of PEO Chapter AK, where she served in many offices, from secretary to president. The joy of her life was being with her family and

her many friends. She was a vivacious, generous and loving soul who gave so much to all who knew her. She especially doted on her 11 grandchildren. Judy enjoyed the many trips to the sunshine of Arizona and to St. Simons Island in Georgia, along with a cruise to the Panama Canal with several friends from the harbor. Another trip she enjoyed was a 38-day car trip with Ron across the U.S., visiting 26 of the 50 states. One of Judy’s favorite pastimes was walking, and according to her friends, she had the fastest feet in the West! During the last several weeks of her debilitating cancer, one of the things she missed the most was the long walks with her close friends. In addition to her loving husband, Ron, Judy is survived by her children, Kimberly Rogstad of Visalia, California, Dawn Black (Stuart) of Aberdeen, Eric Rogstad (Sue) of Bothell, Washington, and Ryan

Rogstad (Laurie) of St. Simons Island; two sisters, Elizabeth Dynes of Burlington, Washington, and Jeannie Pinamonti (Dave) of Roswell, Georgia; and 11 grandchildren. Recitation of the Rosary will take place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, January 10, in the chapel at Harrison Family Mortuary, located at 311 West Market Street in Aberdeen. A funeral Mass will be held at noon on Friday, January 11, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Aberdeen. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to either Coastal Harvest, 520 Tyler Street, Hoquiam, WA 98550; or to Feed the Hungry program at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 306 East Third Street, Aberdeen, WA 98520.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Wednesday, January 9, 2013 PAGE


Snowpack harbinger of new Ice Age? JANUARY COULD BE the cruelest month. It is often a time when we pay for December. Things could be worse. Pat Just the fact Neal that you are reading this means we missed the End of the World According to the Mayan Calendar. That’s the good news. The bad news is the advice provided in this column — that in the event of the end of the world, the fishing seasons and limits would be eliminated — may have been premature. A recent stream-side interview with our dedicated public servant fish cop confirmed that you will still need a fishing license, even after the end of the world.

Reading this column also means you survived the Fiscal Cliff. That’s the good news. The bad news is we didn’t survive it for long. If the plutocrats in Washington don’t get their act together very soon, the government will shut down. Which sounds like a good idea, but it’s probably too good to be true. Still, things could be worse. For example, the government has yet to get involved with climate change. This is probably a good thing. For years, many of us have been looking forward to the dream of global warming we were promised. We thought global warming would be a good thing. We dreamed it would be like moving to California while staying right here in Washington. Unfortunately, this is not a perfect world. A front-page article in the

Jan. 7 Peninsula Daily News [“Olympic Snowpack: Biggest in the U.S.?”] illustrated a clear and present threat to our way of life that has made me unable to keep silent. The Natural Resources Conservation Service measured the snowpack in the Olympic Mountains and found it 210 percent of normal! Think about it. If we have double our normal amount of snowpack in January, just how high will it pile up by the time the snow stops flying in the high country in April or May? The recent announcement of this huge snowpack appears to contrast with the findings of the National Climatic Data Center, which determined that 2012 was the hottest year in the continental United States since records were first kept in 1895. Or it could confirm a theory that I and many other rightthinking wilderness gossip columnists have proposed: that global warming could lead to a

new ice age. Here’s how: The Arctic Ocean ice pack has been withering for decades. It has been estimated that the Arctic Ocean could be ice-free in a matter of years. An ice-free Arctic Ocean absorbs more solar radiation during the long summer days, which evaporates more water into the atmosphere. With higher precipitation, the increased snowpack might not melt during the summer. Glacial ice could form at lower altitudes and in more southerly latitudes. Our beloved Earth has been subjected to five ice ages in the last 2 billion years. We are only now getting out of the last ice age from just 10,000 years ago. The so-called “Little Ice Age” was not a real ice age, just a little global cooling that ended in 1850. Our Olympic Mountain glaciers were thought to be


retreating ever since. Until now, this is the third winter in a row of abnormally high snowpack in the Olympic Mountains. Despite higher-than-normal national temperatures, the West Coast of the U.S. was from 1 to 2 degrees cooler than normal last year. Last fall, this columnist documented a glacier on the Dungeness River that had advanced a hundred yards in the past 10 years. The sleeping giant of ice and rock is awake, crushing wildflowers and endangering marmots as the ice returns to the sea. ________ Pat Neal is a fishing guide and “wilderness gossip columnist.” Neal can be reached at 360683-9867 or email at His column appears here every Wednesday.

Way to go: Get to the trail via ‘limo’ BY TED BEDFORD RETIREMENT ALLOWS A person to expand adventures to another level. My friend, Dallas, and I have found great hiking opportunities saving money on fuel, reducing our carbon footprint and enjoying the Bedford grandeur of the Olympic Peninsula wilderness. We researched schedules that transit systems in Clallam and Jefferson counties offer to accommodate our hiking adventures. We have hiked to many places on the North Olympic Peninsula by purchasing a day pass from Clallam Transit for $3 or $2 on

POINT OF VIEW the Jefferson Transit bus. We maintain a standing joke, calling our buses “stretch limos.” Living in Carlsborg and traveling west to hiking trailheads, we board the Sequim-to-Port Angeles commuter taking us to Port Angeles. Waiting only 15 minutes at the transfer site, we board the Port Angeles-to-Forks “limo.” From this point, we can choose a number of hiking locations. They include the West Elwha Trail off Herrick Road; the Spruce Railroad, Storm King, Barnes Creek, and Fairholme trails off Lake Crescent; or the Mount Muller trail west in the Sol Duc Valley. Using this mode of transportation offers a “one-way hike”














event. Our favorite is disembarking at the East Beach Road, hiking 13 miles around Lake Crescent via the road and the Spruce Railroad trail, and picking up the bus in the late afternoon at Fairholme on the west end of the lake. Pete, our usual bus driver in the morning, is very courteous and accommodating. He is amenable to allowing us to depart at any location along the highway where he can safely pull off. Dallas and I have traveled as far as the beaches at LaPush and Kalaloch, in a single day taking advantage of the transit system. We plan our return trips by meeting a late afternoon Forksto-Port Angeles bus and then having only a 15-minute wait in Port Angeles until we board the commuter back to Carlsborg.

Yes, it’s a full-day hiking adventure with very little cost, not to mention reducing fuel consumption and our carbon footprints. Another popular hike utilizing Jefferson Transit is boarding the Sequim-to-Port Townsend bus and departing at Four Corners off state Highway 20. We hike the Olympic Discovery-Larry Scott trail that is now complete from this point and leads us into Port Townsend. This is a great 7½-mile trek that ends up right at the transit center for our return to Sequim. We also have explored Old Fort Townsend and Fort Worden state parks via Jefferson Transit. One doesn’t need to be retired to take advantage of these events. Take a day off to experience it for yourself.

I have a vision that some day, Olympic National Park or another entity will offer shuttles from Port Angeles to Hurricane Ridge or maybe up the Sol Duc Valley or Hoh Rain Forest off U.S. Highway 101 that would connect with our renowned public transit system. Backpacking, day hiking, biking or just sightseeing possibilities would exceedingly increase, but until my image of the future occurs, take advantage of the opportunities that exist today. ________ Ted Bedford lives in Carlsborg.

Corrections workers plan rally BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

OLYMPIA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Hundreds of corrections employees from across Washington, with one bus slated to leave from Clallam Bay Corrections Center, will meet in Olympia on Thursday to rally in front of the Capitol. The employees will call for legislation to improve on-the-job safety for corrections employees, a representative from a labor union announced Monday. Teamsters Local Union 117 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which represents state Department of Corrections employees â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is hosting the 10 a.m. rally.

Some 400 state employees are expected to attend the rally, Local Union 117 Communications Coordinator Paul Zilly said. Between 20 and 25 of the 366 represented by the union at Clallam Bay Corrections Center are expected to attend as well as some 20 to 25 workers from the Olympic Corrections Center near Forks. A march around the Capitol at 416 14th Ave. S.E. in Olympia is scheduled to culminate on the Capitol steps with speeches from union officials, corrections employees and state legislators, Zilly said. Zilly said the main

issues that union-represented employees â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which include corrections officers, counselors, psychologists and maintenance workers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; want addressed are onthe-job safety and securing the same negotiating rights that represented police officers and firefighters have. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be another attempt to get our message out,â&#x20AC;? Zilly said.

Meet with lawmakers About one-third of those who attend plan to meet with state legislators, he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have many, many visits set up with legislators,â&#x20AC;? Zilly said.

Teamsters Local Union 117 represents 6,000 corrections employees across the state, Zilly Pacholke said, and 16,000 total employees in Washington state. Dan Pacholke, director of the prisons division of the state Department of Corrections, said he is aware of the planned employee rally and that the department has taken steps over the past few years to address employee concerns over onthe-job safety. Pacholke said these


measures have included establishing employee-run committees at each of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s corrections facilities to address safety and introducing new management training programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Staff safety is much more a matter of practice than policy,â&#x20AC;? Pacholke said. On-the-job safety is the top priority, Pacholke said, though working with corrections inmates is by nature a high-risk job that puts every employee in a certain unavoidable amount of danger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want every employee to be safe, but the bottom line is, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t guarantee that,â&#x20AC;? Pacholke said.


GRANITE FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Two Granite Falls police officers were injured when their car was rammed by the driver of a stolen car during a chase. The driver also rammed a Snohomish County deputyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car Monday night before crashing into a utility pole. KOMO reported that the driver ran off on foot, but a woman passenger in the car was taken into custody. The car had been stolen in Everett.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Wednesday, January 9, 2013 SECTION


B Golf

Rule lessens wind’s impact UNWILLING TO ENDURE the blizzard of commercials found during the Ravens-Colts football game, my buddies and I switched over to the wind-walloped PGA Tour’s season-opening Tournament of Champions. Those with RedZone, the Michael proprietary NFL Carman channel that switches to show every scoring play of every game, know how difficult a transition it is to go from a commercial-free zone to wave after wave of ads. I knew that Friday and Saturday’s rounds had been scratched due to high winds and realized things would be far from perfect. What I didn’t know and subsequently researched was a rule change made in relation to wind (and an embrace of common sense). Play lasted for 71 minutes in total on Sunday before strong winds again pushed the opening round to the following day. A Monday finish? How about what is likely the first Monday start in PGA history? As soon as Ravens-Colts went to an ad, we saw Ian Poulter’s hat blow off and become a souvenir as he attempted to hit an approach shot. He was about 180 yards out, and wind was buffeting Poulter so badly he would approach, get slammed by wind and back off, approach, get slammed and so on. We were captivated by this for almost an entire three-minute break and never even saw him take his shot. During other gaps in football, we saw players overcome the conditions and hit greens in regulation only to see their hard work blown off the dance floor by the cruelest of zephyrs. Instead of putting for birdie, golfers were facing uphill chips into the wind to try for up-and-down pars. In double-checking that players must indeed play these wind-driven shots wherever they end up, I discovered a related, common-sense rule change. In a rule that went into effect a year ago, players are no longer penalized if wind causes their ball to move after they have addressed it. This change came about after Padraig Harrington, Rory McIlroy and Webb Simpson were given onestroke penalties during 2011 tournaments. “Every time the wind blows I am worried that my ball is going to move and I am worried about grounding my putter, distracting me from trying to hole my putt,” Harrington said in a statement issued by the USGA. “Players won’t be getting penalized or disqualified unfairly. It is definitely giving us players a little bit of a break.” Kudos to the USGA and the R&A for understanding force majeure events outside our control can happen on the golf course and deciding to rectify a bad rule with some common sense. If you need a rule clarified ask the USGA by sending an email to or phone 908-2342300, ext. 1387. They will answer, even if the question concerns a $2 Nassau bet.


Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch (24) tumbles into the end zone for a touchdown during the Seahawks’ 24-14 playoff win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Still a playoff beast Lynch hopes to keep dominating postseason BY TIM BOOTH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RENTON — Marshawn Lynch’s tremor-causing playoff touchdown run two years ago against New Orleans has been viewed millions of times on YouTube. It will be hard for Lynch to ever top that stunning run, during which he broke more than a half-dozen tackles on his way to a 67-yard touchdown that induced enough frenzy inside

the Seahawks’ stadium that seismic activity was registered. Still, his better playoff performance might have been last Sunday in Seattle’s wild-card victory over Washington. Seattle needed all of Lynch’s 132 yards rushing, and especially his 27-yard touchdown run midway through the fourth quarter, to dispatch the Redskins. His sidestep cut that left Washington cornerback DeAn-




He rushed for 99 yards in the second half and overcame a costly fumble at the Washington 1-yard line on the first drive of the second half that could have shaken others. Not Lynch. “You don’t ever have to worry about his mind-set,” Seattle fullback Michael Robinson said after the game. “He got to the sideline, he was upset about it, and he just said, ‘Give it to me again. Keep feeding me.’” Lynch is coming off the finest regular season of his career, yet he ended up getting overshadowed by the rise of quarterback Russell Wilson. TURN



Bad timing for Clemons’ injury Rookie Irvin set to replace sack leader BY ERIC D. WILLIAMS MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE

RENTON — Chris Clemons would have had an opportunity to play in front of family and friends when Seattle traveled to Atlanta to face the Falcons in the NFC divisional playoff on Sunday. Instead, Seattle’s defensive end, a native of Griffin, Ga., a half-hour drive south of Atlanta, will have to watch from the sideline. Pete Carroll told reporters that Clemons had a magnetic resonance imaging test, which revealed that he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament and

a torn meniscus in his left knee that will require surgery. Seattle is losing its best pass rusher at a bad time, since it is facing the Falcons, one of the top passing offenses in the league, on Sunday. “It’s a big loss for us in a lot of ways,” Carroll said. “Chris has been a great football player. “He’s just been a symbol of consistency for the years we’ve had him. But he’s been a great leader for us, too. And a tough dude.” Carroll said that rookie firstround draft choice Bruce Irvin will step in and fill Clemons’ spot in the starting lineup. The Seahawks will also look to Greg Scruggs and outside linebackers K.J. Wright and Mike Morgan to help provide some pass rush off the edge. “This is Bruce’s opportunity,” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Carroll said. First-year defensive end Bruce Irvin celebrates sacking TURN TO HAWKS/B3 Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III on Sunday.

Pac-12 review clears WSU, Leach Investigation finds no proof of abuse by coaching staff BY NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Former Washington State wide receiver Marquess Wilson (86) recanted allegations of abuse he made against the Cougars coaching staff.

SPOKANE — A Pac-12 investigation found no evidence of physical or mental abuse of players in the Washington State football program under coach Mike Leach, the league said Tuesday The findings of the independent review mirrored the findings of Washington State’s own internal review of the allegations, which was released last month. Former Washington State receiver Marquess Wilson contended near the end of last foot-

ball season that players were suffering physical and mental abuse at the hands of coaches. Wilson, who quit the team, subsequently recanted his allegations. But university President Elson Floyd asked the school and the Pac-12 to investigate the charges anyway. “I am pleased with the outcome of both reviews,” Floyd said in a press release Tuesday. “The well-being of all Washington State students is our highest priority and it was important to take seriously allegations against the program.” The Pac-12 report was compiled after 20 interviews with coaches, players, parents of players and athletic department staff members.

Leach disputed the allegation and it was not proven.

rep offered ‘donation’ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The chief of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency tells CBS’s “60 Minutes Sports” that a representative for Lance Armstrong offered the agency a “donation” in excess of $150,000 several years before a USADA investigation led to Armstrong being stripped of seven Tour de France titles.

Quickly rejected In an interview on the show’s premier airing Wednesday night,

USADA CEO Travis Tygart said he was “stunned” when he received the offer in 2004 and USADA didn’t hesitate to turn it down. Armstrong’s attorney, Tim Herman, denied such an offer was made. “No truth to that story,” Herman wrote Tuesday in an email to The Associated Press. “First Lance heard of it was today. He never made any such contribution or suggestion.” Tygart did not immediately respond to requests from the AP for comment.

Here I am calling out golf pros while I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even make it through a TV commercial. Some tough guy I am.

while defensive linemen were figuring out if Wilson was keeping the ball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has grown quite a bit, and in the last two years he has really owned it. It was a little sticky at first, and his consistency wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as sharp as it is now,â&#x20AC;? Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He basically gets it right almost all of time now. He trusts the reads, he trusts the principles and philosophy of the run game and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been maxing out pretty much for a couple of years now.â&#x20AC;? That system was on display again against the Redskins.

Wilson the blocker

divisional round two years ago against Chicago, he was held to just 2 yards rushing on four carries in what remains the least productive game of his nearly twoplus seasons with the Seahawks. Now he gets a chance to atone for that when the Seahawks travel to Atlanta on Sunday and face a Falcons run defense that was leaky during the regular season. Atlanta finished the year ranked 21st at stopping the run and gave up at

While Lynch got the bulk of the yards, Wilson added another 67 yards rushing. Twice, including on Lynchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s touchdown run in the fourth quarter, Wilson was out ahead of his running back serving as a blocker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry about Russell.

least 140 yards rushing in each of its three losses. The team that gave the Falcons the most fits was Carolina and mobile quarterback Cam Newton. The Panthers and their zoneread offensive system rushed for a combined 394 yards and averaged nearly 6 yards per carry in two games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve grown and become more together and more in tune with our quarterback and what he can do and all that,â&#x20AC;? Carroll said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a pretty hard team to beat right now.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ultra-high-definitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; TVs unveiled at gadget show

$ Briefly . . . Sequim CPA announces new address

New sets offer sharper picture


Sonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4K XBR LED televisions are displayed at the Sony booth at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Samsung President Boo-Keun Yoon said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have developed TVs that respond to peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs and lifestyles, TVs that know in advance what people want to watch.â&#x20AC;? With nearly 8.3 million pixels, an ultra-high-definition or â&#x20AC;&#x153;4Kâ&#x20AC;? screen contains four times more pixels than an HD TV.

Higher resolution With the higher resolution, viewers can sit close without losing clarity. That could appeal to big-screen fanatics who live in small spaces. Ultra-HD sets come as small as new models from LG and Sony, which

stretch 55 inches diagonally. And estimated prices are dropping to below $10,000, bringing these multi-megapixel TVs within the spending range of early adopters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope you can see that 4K is not the future, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now; and Sony is leading the way,â&#x20AC;? said Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai. It could be a few years before prices come down enough for the masses to justify buying ultra-HD TVs, especially considering that U.S. TV buyers spent a record-low average of $364 on flat-screen TVs during the recent holiday shopping season, according to research firm NPD Group.

The Hatchet Job award goes to . . . THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONDON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A mauling of Martin Amis and savaging of Salman Rushdie are in the running for the best bad book review of 2012. Eight finalists were announced Tuesday for the Hatchet Job of the Year Award, a prize set up to reward scathing works of literary journalism. The nominees include Ron Charlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Washington Post review of Amisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; satirical saga Lionel Asbo â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a

LAS VEGAS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The race to make TVs larger and larger has created a colossal problem for manufacturers: As screens grow, picture quality worsens â&#x20AC;&#x201D; unless the viewer moves farther away from the screen. The issue is playing out in cozy dens and family rooms around the world. To get the full benefit of a large high-definition screen, viewers must move back from their sets. Because the ideal viewing distance is no closer than three times the height of your screen, or about 1½ times the diagonal length, big TVs have literally forced many familiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; backs against the wall. This year, TV makers are doing their best to give huge-screen fanatics more breathing room. New â&#x20AC;&#x153;ultrahigh-definitionâ&#x20AC;? sets were shown off Monday by LG Electronics Inc., Sharp Corp., Sony Corp. and Samsung Electronics Co. at the International CES gadget show this week in Las Vegas. Consumers tend to buy a new set every seven years or so, and manufacturers are hoping the technology will give consumers a reason to upgrade. TV makers also are making their sets smarter. Samsung TVs, for instance, will recognize an expanded range of gestures so people can swipe through on-screen menus in a way that revolutionizes the remote control.

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; First there were McNuggets. Then there were Chicken McBites. Now McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s might add â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mighty Wingsâ&#x20AC;? to its chicken menu. The worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest hamburger chain is set to expand its test of chicken wings to Chicago this week, after a successful run in Atlanta last year. The wings are sold in servings of three, five or 10 pieces, with prices starting at $3, said Lynne Collier, an analyst with Sterne Agee.

500 restaurants A McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokeswoman confirmed the test would start this week at about 500 Chicago restaurants but said there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any plans yet to bring the wings to other cities. She noted that the creamy ranch would be the default dipping sauce. Prices for chicken wings have been climbing over the past year, reflecting an increase in the number of restaurants serving them, said David Harvey, an agriculture economist. In December, the cost of wholesale wings in the Northeast was 26 percent higher than a year ago.

Fun ’n’ Advice






DEAR ABBY: My husband is now involved in his third computer affair. He’s a teacher, and his first one was with a student. He almost was fired over it. He apologized to me and to his supervisor, said it was an “error in judgment” and promised it would never happen again. Last week, I found an email he had sent to another former student, and the things he said to her were disgusting. The current one is a student, too. I have a nice home, and my husband is good to me except for his wandering eye. He gives me anything I want and takes me with him whenever he travels. But he is a Jekyll and Hyde when it comes to a computer and young girls — all younger than his daughter, I might add. I know if this gets back to his boss he’ll be fired. He’s a brilliant man and an excellent teacher. So what do I do? I have considered doing nothing and if he gets caught to let him suffer the consequences. Or I can confront him and try to get him to see a counselor before he ruins his career and makes me a laughingstock of the community. We’re financially comfortable, and I hate to give it up, but I don’t want to live the rest of my life like this, either. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Not Laughing in Washington State

DEAR ABBY man to spend time with. I’m attractive, Van Buren slim and active. A year and a half ago, I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. I have excellent medical care, and my doctor is optimistic. She told me she has treated many women who have survived 10 years and are still doing fine. I intend to do everything in my power to be one of those women. I have tried meeting men on the Internet or through groups I belong to. I explain on the first date about my health issues because I don’t want anyone to think I’m dishonest. Unfortunately, several men I would have liked to see again told me flat-out that they “can’t deal with the cancer thing.” Should I wait to tell a man about my illness until we’ve seen each other a few times? Or should I continue as I have and hope I eventually find someone with enough compassion willing to take the chance? Healthy Now in Wisconsin


Dear Healthy Now: Compassion? How about someone intelligent enough to grasp that nobody has a guarantee about how long someone will live — including him? The appropriate time to discuss your medical history is after you have gotten to know someone well enough that you can talk frankly about it and the relationship is beyond casual. First dates do not fall into that category. No man who cares about you would ever walk away. And any man who would isn’t worth having, so consider yourself lucky.

Dear Not Laughing: Your husband has a serious problem. He is playing Russian roulette with his career — and it’s only a matter of time until he acts inappropriately with the wrong student. If you love him at all, confront him and insist that he talk to a counselor and learn to strengthen his impulse control. When his activities become public knowledge, as is sure to happen, you won’t be the laughingstock of the community, but your husband will be scorned and jobless. If you want to protect your lifestyle as well as your husband’s female students, insist he get professional help now.
