County to lay off more in wake of failed talks BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Clallam County officials said 16 more layoffs are needed because of a breakdown in negotiations with its largest union. The bad news comes as 15 county employees were being laid off this week. “We are out of time and must immediately build our final 2012 budget,” county Administrator Jim Jones told a crowd of elected officials, department heads, county employees and the public in a work session Monday. The 16 new layoffs are workers in the Teamsters Local

“We’ve tried.” MIKE CHAPMAN county commissioner Union No. 589. The positions are eight in the road department, two in the Auditor’s Office, the equivalent of two positions in health and human services, two in parks and maintenance, one in community development and one half-time position in both juvenile services and clerk. Last week, Jones presented a final draft budget that had 16 unpaid furlough days to go along with the 15 original layoffs. Those measures would have

cut more than $2 million out of a $2.7 million budget shortfall in the $31.7 million general fund. Jones reported Monday that Teamsters refused the concessions — furlough days and a one-year hiatus on a cost-of-living pay raise — that would have prevented the 16 additional layoffs. He said the new layoff notices would go out Tuesday. “As [union] bumping rights may exist, if any are used, it will change the people component considerably from those who get the notice,” Jones wrote in an email Tuesday morning. At Tuesday’s commissioners meeting, union member Dale

Holiday raised concerns over the Teamsters vote, which was taken by a show of hands Thursday at about 6:15 p.m. Holiday, who is not a union representative, said “quite a few people wanted to accept the concessions, and yet it did not go that way.” She said the contracts were provided less than two hours before the vote, and many didn’t expect to be voting that day. “I heard inaccuracies up to the minute we voted in what people were saying or thinking, and then they voted based on that misinformation,” Holiday said.

Motorist died before crash, police say BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — A Carlsborg man may have died or suffered an unknown “catastrophic illness” while driving eastbound on West Washington Street before his vehicle crashed into a light pole at the Walgreens parking lot early Tuesday, police said. Harold Van Riper, a Parkwood Estates resident who was almost 81, was pronounced dead at the scene after his car smashed into a light pole at about 6:37 a.m. He was eastbound on West Washington Street when witnesses said he gunned the engine, crossing West Washington into the corner of the parking lot at the Rite Aid store.

he motorist, 81, was en route to a doctor’s appointment when his car bolted across a Sequim street and crasked into a light pole.


His 2007 Honda CR-V bolted through two landscape embankments, shot across a sidewalk and two lanes of North Fifth Avenue near the intersection of Washington Street, crossed another sidewalk and smashed into a concrete-supported light pole at the Walgreens store parking lot at 490 West Washington St. Police don’t believe Van Riper, who was on his way to a doctor’s

appointment at the Jamestown Family Health Clinic on North Fifth Avenue, was killed by the impact of the crash. “We do not believe that the nature of the collision would support a fatality,” said Detective Sean Madison, one of the Sequim police traffic investigators on the scene Tuesday morning. “A catastrophic illness was more likely than the collision itself” as the cause of death, he said, though the vehicle sustained severe front-end damage. “There’s nothing that the first officer at the scene saw that would correlate with the damage of the car,” Madison said.

PORT ANGELES — McCrorie Home Furnishings is closing after 53 years in downtown Port Angeles. The iconic furniture store’s closure is prompted by the retirement of its owner, Bob McCrorie. A liquidation sale begins at noon Friday. The closure does not affect McCrorie Carpet One Floor and Home stores in Port Angeles, Sequim and Port Hadlock, operated by Bob’s brothers, John and David McCrorie. The Carpet One stores will remain open for business as usual. After almost 40 years serving the furnishing needs of the North Olympic Peninsula, Bob McCro-

rie, 60, said he wants to retire and pursue his hobbies — which include building and refurbishing private planes — and other interests. He also wants to spend more time with his wife, Mickey, an airline pilot for Allegiant Air. After consulting with his brothers, he decided to close the business and not sell it. “Our family reputation is too important to me to take a chance on selling this business,” he said. “I can’t be sure of how a new owner would carry forward. “Also, with my brothers remaining in business with their Carpet One stores, a new owner could affect their reputation as well.” TURN

Newsmakers Celebrity scoop ■ By The Associated Press

Lady Gaga taps her inner Willy Wonka FOR THE GRAND opening of Gaga’s Workshop, it seemed as if Lady Gaga chartered a sleigh, picked up Santa Claus and Willy Wonka along the way and landed Monday night at Barneys’ New York flagship on Madison Avenue. The workshop is the retailer’s in-store holiday shop, conceived, designed Lady Gaga and christened by Lady Gaga — 5,500 square feet of bright colors, crazy shapes and a gigantic cartoon statue of the superstar herself in a pinup pose surrounded by jagged mirrors and sitting atop thousands of black plastic discs.

From the street, passers-by get a hint of what’s taken over the fifth floor of the store since Gaga and stylist Nicola Formichetti also created the seasonal window displays, always an attraction during the holidays, but the crowds typically don’t start building hours before the unveiling as they did Monday. To keep them entertained, a troupe of clownsturned-carolers sang some of Gaga’s signature songs, including “The Edge of Glory” and “Born This Way.” “It’s a ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ moment,” Gaga said. “We wanted it all to be whimsical and fun, with a sense of art and fashion.”

Bid for test denied A judge denied a request Monday by lawyers for the doctor convicted of causing Michael Jackson’s death to have an independent laboratory

test the contents of a key vial of evidence. Just days before the scheduled sentencing of Dr. Conrad Murray, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said defense attorneys could have sought the testing months ago or even during the doctor’s sixweek trial but chose not to. “You’re not involved in fishing, you’re involved in foraging,” Pastor said. Murray’s attorneys wanted a lab to test a small amount of liquid found in a vial of the anesthetic propofol that authorities contend was used to help Jackson sleep on the day he died. Defense lawyer J. Michael Flanagan argued the results would reveal the accuracy of a theory by a prosecution expert who testified that Murray left Jackson’s bedside while the singer was on an IV drip of propofol and the painkiller lidocaine.

I. MICHAEL HEYMAN, 81, died Saturday in Berkeley, Calif., after a long battle with emphysema. His opening days in 1994 as the first nonscientist to lead the Smithsonian Institution were spent conMr. Heyman fronting controversy over a planned exhibition of the plane that dropped the first atomic bomb. Veterans groups, some historians and members of Congress fiercely protested the National Air and Space Museum’s planned display of the B-29 Enola Gay, saying it was too sympathetic to the Japanese. Mr. Heyman eventually canceled the exhibit — but still showed the plane in one of the most visited museums. When five revisions of the exhibit script failed to

satisfy critics, Mr. Heyman ordered a simple display in 1995 void of commentary, context or analysis of its role as a turning point during World War II when the U.S. dropped the bomb on Hiroshima in August 1945. “I don’t believe that this is a glorification of nuclear weapons,” Mr. Heyman said at the time. “It says, ‘This is the Enola Gay. It dropped the bomb that ended the war.’ It doesn’t take a position on the morality of it.” Still, the exhibit drew protests and arrests of antiwar activists when it finally opened.

A3 Briefly: Nation Judge: No bail for Georgia terror suspects ATLANTA — A federal judge has denied bond for the four elderly Georgia men accused of plotting terror attacks against government officials, saying in an order filed this week that there was no other way to “reasonably assure the safety of the community.” U.S. Magistrate Susan Cole said in Monday’s written order that although the four militia members may be elderly and infirm, they could still carry out attacks simply by pulling a trigger or detonating an explosive with a cellphone. Some of the men, she wrote, could feel they have “nothing to lose by committing the violent acts.” The four men were arrested in early November after at least seven months of surveillance by the informant, who infiltrated their meetings at a Waffle House restaurant and other places. The men allegedly boasted of a list of government officials who needed to be “taken out,” talked of scattering the biological toxin ricin from a speeding car through major U.S. cities and scouted two federal buildings in Atlanta.

Penn State judges HARRISBURG, Pa. — All the judges in Penn State’s home county removed themselves from potentially presiding over the child sex-abuse case against for-

Palin hacking cost KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The government paid nearly $2,500 for Sarah Palin’s husband to come to the trial of a Tennessee college student who hacked into her email — even though Todd Palin never testified, court records show. In all, the government paid more than $29,000 to fly members of the Palin family and other witnesses to Knoxville and house them, send a prosecutor to Alaska for research and pay other travel expenses, according to the Department of Justice records obtained by The Associated Press through a Freedom of Information Act request. Prosecutors won a conviction against David Kernell, who finishes his 10-month sentence today. The former Alaska governor; her daughter, Bristol; and an aide were among the witnesses called to the stand, but the prosecutor decided Todd Palin’s testimony wasn’t needed. The Associated Press

Leave!” The latest standoff plunged the country deeper into crisis less than a week before parliamentary elections, the first since the ouster nine months ago of longtime authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak.

Some have blessings to count, some don’t THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Some are holding potluck dinners instead of springing for the entire feast. Others are staying home rather than flying. And a few are skipping the turkey altogether. On this the fourth Thanksgiving since the economy sank, prices for everything from airline flights to groceries are going up, and some Americans are scaling back. Yet in many households, the occasion is too important to skimp on. Said one mother: “I don’t have much to give, but I’ll be cooking, and the door will be open.” Thanksgiving airfares are up 20 percent this year, and the average price of a gallon of gas has risen almost 20 percent, according to travel tracker AAA. Still, about 42.5 million people are expected to travel, the highest number since the start of the recession. But even those who choose to stay home and cook for themselves will probably spend more. A 16-pound turkey and all the

trimmings will cost an average of $49.20, a 13 percent jump from last year, or about $5.73 more, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation, which says grocers have raised prices to keep pace with higher-priced commodities.

No help available In Pawtucket, R.I., Jackie Galinis was among those looking for help to put a proper meal on the table. She stopped at a community center this week seeking a donated food basket. But by the time she arrived, all 300 turkeys had been claimed. So Galinis, an unemployed retail worker, will make do with what’s in her apartment. “We’ll have to eat whatever I’ve got, so I’m thinking chicken,” she said. Then her eyes lit up. “Actually, I think I’ve got red meat in the freezer, some corned beef. We could do a boiled dinner.”

Galinis has another reason to clear out her apartment’s freezer: Her landlord is in the process of evicting her and her 3-year-old son. The unemployment rate in Pawtucket, a city struggling with the loss of manufacturing jobs, is 12.1 percent, well above the national average. Carole Goldsmith of Fresno, Calif., decided she didn’t need to have a feast, even if she could still afford it. Goldsmith, an administrator at a community college in Coalinga, Calif., said she typically hosts an “over-the-top meal” for friends and family. This year, she canceled the meal and donated a dozen turkeys to two homeless shelters. She plans to spend Thursday volunteering before holding a small celebration Friday with soup, bread “and lots of gratitude.” “I think everybody is OK with it,” she said. “They understand. Everybody is in a different place than they were a year ago.”

Latest, greatest rover set for Saturday liftoff to Red Planet THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — As big as a car and as well-equipped as a laboratory, NASA’s newest Mars rover blows away its predecessors in size and skill. Nicknamed Curiosity and scheduled for launch Saturday, the rover has a 7-foot arm tipped with a jackhammer and a laser to break through the Martian red rock. What really makes it stand out: It can analyze rocks and soil with unprecedented accuracy. Once on the red planet, Curiosity will be on the lookout for organic, carbon-containing compounds. While the rover can’t actually detect the presence of living organisms, scientists hope to learn from the $2.5 billion, nuclear-powered

mission whether Mars has — or ever had — what it takes to nurture microbial life. Curiosity will be “the largest and most complex piece of equipment ever placed on the surface of another planet,” said Doug McCuistion, director of NASA’s Mars exploration program. Ten feet long, 9 feet wide and 7 feet tall at its mast, Curiosity is about twice the size of previous rovers Spirit and Opportunity, weighs 1 ton and is loaded with 10 science instruments. Its formal name: Mars Science Laboratory, or MSL. In a spacecraft first, Curiosity will be lowered to Mars’ surface via a jet pack and a tether system similar to the sky cranes used by helicopters to insert heavy equipment in inaccessible spots

on Earth. No bouncing air bags like those used for the Mars Pathfinder lander and rover in 1997 and for Spirit and Opportunity in 2004 — Curiosity is too heavy for that. It is the kind of precision landing that officials said will benefit future human explorers on Mars. The rover is scheduled to arrive at the mineral-rich Gale Crater next August, 8½ months after embarking on the 354-million-mile voyage aboard an Atlas V rocket. Once safely down on Mars, the rover will survey the landscape with high-definition and laser cameras mounted like eyes atop its mast. The laser will aim at soil and rocks as far as 20 feet away to gauge their chemical composition.

World: Prosecutor seeks fair trial for Gadhafi son

MASSACHUSETTS FISHING BOAT owner Carlos Rafael was elated recently when one of his trawlers snared an 881-pound tuna. The tuna was likely inadvertently snagged as Rafael’s crew set a net to catch bottom-dwellers. Federal fishery enforcement agents seized the fish when the crew returned to port Nov. 12. Rafael had tuna permits but was told catching tuna with a net is illegal. They must be caught with rod and reel. He will likely get a warning if regulators find a violation. Rafael might give up his permits, saying they’re apparently worthless.

AT LEAST 20 current or former high school students from an affluent New York suburb of high achievers have been charged in a widening college entrance exam cheating scandal. Thirteen students from the Great Neck area, a cluster of Long Island communities with top-ranked schools that send virtually all their graduates to college, were implicated in the latest round of charges, filed Tuesday. Seven others were arrested in September. Prosecutors said 15 high school students hired five other people for anywhere from $500 to $3,600 each to take the SAT or ACT for them.

Seif al-Islam is charged with crimes against humanity for the crackdown on an uprising that began in February. “Seif is captured, so we are here to ensure cooperation,” Moreno-Ocampo told reporters after arriving in Libya.

SEATTLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Washington state education officials know a lot more about your kids than they ever knew about you. They can now track a child from kindergarten through college enrollment and soon will be able to tell you everything about every kid who has gone to school in Washington from preschool through his or her first job. Everything includes every school they attended, every achievement test they passed or failed, their ethnic identity, whether they qualified for free lunch, what college they chose, if they had to take remedial courses, when they started college and more. Of course, this information is anonymous to outside viewers, including researchers and the public, but it gives local school officials a lot to comb through to find ways to improve the way they prepare kids for college and the world.

He will attempt to lease the buildings to new businesses. He hired Denver-based SPCI Cos. to conduct the sale that begins Friday. He expects the store to sell the last of its inventory by the end of February. The furniture store is entwined with the McCrorie family history on the Peninsula. The McCrorie brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; grandparents, Hugh and Else McCrorie, homesteaded in Sequim in the early 1930s. They were dairy farmers, and the McCrorie family farmed into the 1980s. Bob McCrorie Sr. left the farm to work for the Peoples Department Store in Port Angeles, managing its furniture and appliance departments.

Students walk on the campus of the University of Washington in Seattle. Washington state education officials can now track a child from kindergarten through college enrollment. State officials hope to use the information they are gathering about college enrollment to help others better prepare for college and succeed once they get there, and they expect to expand their reports in the near future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The silver bullet is to pay attention to people all the way through,â&#x20AC;? said David Prince, director of research and analysis for the state Board of Community and Technical Colleges.

PA city manager talks jobs, projects 2 ballot measures likely for upgrades, Myers says BY TOM CALLIS PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; From the expansion of composite manufacturing to waterfront redevelopment, City Manager Kent Myers offered a cornucopia of events and plans to look forward to next year while speaking to the Port Angeles Business Association on Tuesday. Although his speech acknowledged the presence of empty storefronts and an overall s l u g g i s h Myers e c o n o m y, Myers in his lengthy and wide-ranging address highlighted why Port Angeles residents should feel positive about 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all doom and gloom,â&#x20AC;? he said. Myers noted to the receptive audience that Angeles Composite Technologies Inc. will add 40 to 50 jobs next year with its composite campus expansion at the William R. Fairchild International Airport and that the city will endeavour on several of its own projects next year. They include the start of waterfront redevelopment, which will include the $3 million and $3.5 million construction of an esplanade and the design of a new Lauridsen Boulevard bridge that will help spur the creation of a new truck route. A citywide wireless Internet project will also get under way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The entire community would be a hot spot,â&#x20AC;? he said

of the project, funded with a $2.6 million grant and about $300,000 in city funds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it will set Port Angeles ahead . . . as a leader in wireless,â&#x20AC;? Myers said.

Ballot measures Myers addressed the possibility of two ballot measures next year to fund up to $4 million of improvements to Civic Field and up to an additional $6 million for waterfront improvements. He said it is likely the City Council will request voters to approve new property taxes to fund the projects, and in response to a question added that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible that any new voterapproved tax would apply to residents who live outside the city limit but within the Port Angeles School Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boundary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at options,â&#x20AC;? Myers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is an option we are considering.â&#x20AC;? Since the special property tax levy for the Port Angeles Senior Center will lapse next year, he said, the city will be able to keep city residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tax burden at its current level even if the bond measures are approved.

Nippon Myers also noted that Nippon Paper Industries USAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $71 million biomass energy project will help keep the Port Angeles mill stable, which he said was on the verge of closing. Asked about it after the meeting, the city manager said the millâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s management


Monte Smith with Sargent Engineers Inc., left, speaks with city of Port Angeles civil engineer Jim Mahlum near the Lauridsen Boulevard Bridge in Port Angeles on Tuesday. did tell the city that the mill was at risk of shuttering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their future was uncertain over the last couple years,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mill Manager Harold Norlund couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be immediately reached for comment. The City Council, during its budget discussions for 2012, decided to continue to waive Nipponâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electrical base rate, which it has not had to pay since 2004. The council members noted they wanted to help keep the mill in operation when making their decision. Myers said the mill officials hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t told the city that it would be at risk of closing if the base rate, proposed at $3,800 per month, was reapplied.

The rate was $5,870 per month before it was discontinued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still committed to helping Nippon stay competitive with their business,â&#x20AC;? Myers said. Gary Holmquist, Nipponâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biomass project manger, said last week that the cogeneration project is still scheduled to be completed in early 2013. Nippon would burn wood waste from logging sites and sawmills to generate up to 20 megawatts of electricity.

Electrical credits The power it generates would be converted to renewable-energy credits that would be sold to utilities.

Myers said the city will consider purchasing some of those credits. The Bonneville Power Administration will still bill the mill for its full load of power, though it would be using up to 20 megawatts less since it will technically be selling the electricity, Holmquist said.

The city is concerned that the company plans to turn the 75-acre site to wilderness to meet that liability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Restoration of the complete property represents zero jobs to our community,â&#x20AC;? he said. In response to a question, Myers said the city could use eminent domain to acquire the property and prevent that from happening. That is not being considered by the council, he said.

Myers also told the group that the city has not received a response from Gov. Chris Gregoire on whether it will get a seat on the Natural Resource Damage Assessment Trustees ________ Council.

A high-wind watch, along with plenty of rain but no snow, is in effect for tonight through Thanksgiving Day in Clallam and Jefferson counties, the National Weather Service said. The North Olympic Peninsula was spared the ravages of high winds and flood threats that hit other parts of the Puget Sound region Monday night and Tuesday morning. During that period, about a half-inch of rain was measured in Port Angeles, while 2 inches fell at the Quillayute Airport near Forks. Eight to 10 inches of snow fell at Hurricane Ridge. Rain-saturated winds that gusted to more than 50 mph shortly after midnight on Clallam Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West End on Tuesday abated later that morning, Weather Service meteorologist Johnny Burg said. He compared that with the 70-mph gusts experienced in the Bellingham area. Winds hit 59 mph at Quillayute Airport and 51 in Forks, where former Mayor Nedra Reed said she woke up Tuesday morning to potted plants felled by wind and strewn across her patio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was blowing strong enough to rattle the garage

Reed said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here in Forks, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re used to the winter storms,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unless the power is off, we really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay attention to it.â&#x20AC;? Beginning tonight, gusts could reach up to 60 mph in non-mountainous areas of Clallam and Jefferson counties, with sustained speeds of 50 mph in the lowlands, the Weather Service said. Wind blasts of up to 80 mph above the 2,000-foot level are predicted for the Olympic Mountains. Burg said up to an inch of rain could fall in Port Angeles and Port Townsend on Thursday.

The 66-year-old Olympic Medical Center employee appeared to have been knocked down from behind as she attempted to get into her car in the 1000 block of Caroline Street, which is not in the hospital parking lot, at about 5:40 p.m. Monday, the Port Angeles Police Department said in a statement. She suffered minor injuries, police said. The man was hiding before he attacked her and did not say or demand anything before he fled to the east, police said. The assailant is described as between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 9 inches tall, with a thin build and wearing dark-colored pants and a beige hoody sweatshirt with an unspecified design on it. Investigators were reviewing videotapes in hopes of identifying the man. The area around OMC is

Pedestrian killed after wrecking car Ariz. man hit by ambulance after stepping onto roadway PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SILVERDALE — A pedestrian who was struck and killed Monday afternoon after stepping in front of an ambulance driven by a Sequim man had just left his own vehicle after a wreck, the State Patrol said Tuesday. James Colby Coan, 24, of Sierra Vista, Ariz., stepped into the roadway on state Highway 3 at about 3:15 p.m. and was struck by a 2002 Ford ambulance driven by James D. Toepfer, 74, of Sequim. Coan was pronounced dead at the scene, which was about one mile north of

Silverdale near the interchange with Trigger Avenue. His body was removed by the Kitsap County coroner, the State Patrol said. Coan had been driving a Ford Ranger pickup on Cyr Road, which runs above and parallel to state Highway 3, when he failed to stop at a stop sign, said Trooper Krista Hedstrom, State Patrol spokeswoman. His car went through a guardrail and several trees before rolling down the hillside onto the slope that runs along state Highway 3, Hedstrom said. “He got out and ran into the roadway, where he was struck,” she said.

There was no explanation for why the truck veered, and a State Patrol report said it was unknown whether drugs or alcohol was involved. The privately owned ambulance driven by Toepfer struck the man in the southbound lane, the State Patrol reported. Lanes of southbound Highway 3 were blocked for several hours as troopers investigated the scene. The incident is under investigation, a State Patrol spokeswoman said. Lanes of southbound Highway 3 were blocked for several hours as troopers investigated the scene. Toepfer, who reportedly was uninjured, drove the ambulance from the scene. No charges will be filed, Hedstrom said.

Homes tour opens doors to Victorian life OPEN FLOOR PLAN. Large living/dining/kitchen, perfect for entertaining. Home office with Wi-Fi. The typical real estate ad for an “executive home” built in 1990s reflects the permeable nature of modern life. But a century ago, the dividing line between public and private space was quite different. “There were always doors between rooms,” said Michael Klupfell. “You would not be admitted past the parlor if I didn’t know you.” Michael and Molly Klupfell are the current owners of the Stockand House, a seven-gabled Victorian they have restored to its original Queen Ann style. One of three houses on this year’s Holiday Tour of Victorian Homes, it will be decorated from top to toe and receiving guests, who will be invited to see beyond the parlor of a Victorian “executive” home.

They can also enter the kitchen and see the vintage Majestic stove, which Michael “The front Jennifer cooked on with wood in his previdoor was glass ous home but converted to proJackson so that guests pane after moving to Port could see the Townsend. newel post lamp Also on the main floor are a as they walked guest bedroom and a bathroom up,” Michael converted from a closet. said. “It said, For the bathroom floor, ‘We have elecMichael created and installed a tricity.’” mosaic tile pattern based on a The Klupphoto in an 1887 catalog. fells, who “It has 3,500 pieces of tile and bought the took 2,000 cuts,” he said. house in 2001, He found brass doorknobs for do have that executive-home stathe doors in a box of junk in an ple — an island in the kitchen — antique store in California, he but it’s an 1860 partners desk they said, and discovered after stripuse as a work surface. ping them of paint that they The choice was deliberate: were all dated “1887,” the same While previous owners retreated year the Stockand House was to the kitchen for meals and fambuilt. ily time, the couple resolved to live in every room of the house.

But that’s in line with the Victorian idea of privacy, Michael said. The only bathroom in the house when the Klupfells moved in, it was as large as the kitchen and became a repository for unused items by previous tenants.

James Stockand also served on the Port Townsend City Council during some of its most turbulent years, something that hasn’t changed with the times.

Thinking my thanks at Thanksgiving IT’S TIME ONCE again for my annual Thanksgiving column about what Thanksgiving means to me. Thanksgiving means more to me Pat than the story Neal of black-robed Pilgrims in white, starched collars who came to this land seeking religious freedom, sitting down to dinner with their Native American friends to give thanks at the time of harvest — then moving West to transform a howling wilderness into a shining beacon of democracy for the huddled masses of the world. Thanksgiving is a symbol of America that we celebrate to this day. Maybe you think it’s easy for

me, a freelance wilderness gossip columnist with a publishing empire that stretches from Whiskey Flats to Oil City, to be thankful — and you are right. It’s taken me years to become an overnight excess, but there’s more to writing a column than just writing a column about writing a column. Removing the dirty laundry from the seamy underbelly of today’s modern world of the future is a tough job that takes a strong stomach and a First Amendment. That guarantees our right to free speech and a free press, in case you were wondering. This column would simply not be possible without it. In addition, I can think of no better time than Thanksgiving to give thanks for the many other people who make writing this column possible. If not for the hardworking efforts of the dedicated scientists who represent the many govern-

ment agencies that rule our lives for the betterment of us all, I would have very little to write about. I can think of no finer example of man pushing the frontiers of our knowledge to the absolute limits of believability than the geniuses who discovered the root cause for the decline of our salmon runs. It’s the elk’s fault. The scientists say the elk have eaten so many trees along our rivers that it’s causing erosion and heating the rivers with the sun’s harmful rays until the salmon can no longer survive. Other hardworking scientists insist the only way to deal with the destruction of these salmon runs by the elk is to bring back the wolves. For this I think we can all give thanks. Once the wolves are returned to the North Olympic Peninsula by one government agency,

Peninsula Voices

another government agency can put a bounty on them. A bounty on the wolves would go a long way to provide an economic incentive to diversify employment opportunities in our rural areas and make varminthunting respectable again. I can think of no better time than Thanksgiving to give thanks for the Elwha River dams removal project. These dams were built without fish passage on a river that has always been crawling with elk. Once the dams and the elk are removed, it will open a floodgate of government money to study the problem. Even now, hardworking scientists have placed microchips in rocks in the river to see where they will go. I’m no scientist, but if I were a betting man, I’d say the rocks are liable to go downstream. It will be up to future genera-


tions of hardworking scientists to follow the rocks down into the ocean and get back to us with their fascinating results. America has always been the land of opportunity, where all creatures great and small can rise above their humble beginnings to follow their dreams and become an endangered species. So I give thanks for the bull trout, the marbled murrelet and the northern spotted owl. Long may they rule. With their help, I’ll never run out of things to write about. That’s what Thanksgiving means to me.

Mayoral slot The new Port Angeles City Council has been elected. But while voters have spoken, they have no say in who’ll become the next mayor. Currently, the mayor is appointed with four council-member votes. There is another option. Under RCW35A.13.033, the council can ask voters if they want to designate council Position 1 as the chair of the council. If voters say yes to the council proposition on the ballot, future candidates elected to Position 1 would act as “chair” (mayor). The city uses the weakmayor system and operates under the council-manager form of government. Having voters designate the council chair (mayor) doesn’t change that and doesn’t give the mayor any additional powers. Likewise, it doesn’t lessen the remaining rights or powers held by the other six council-members. When councils split over appointing the mayor, it sets the stage for lingering divisiveness. When voters choose the mayor, it removes a source of conflict whenever political winds inevitably shift. That leaves the council to focus on more critical matters at hand. If voters finally want a

voice in the process and feel a four-year mayor could help stabilize the council, they’d approve the proposition. If voters want the title of mayor to be manipulated every two years from within the council’s own ranks, the proposition will fail. The option could go before the voters in August with the Civic Field levy proposition. What’s uncertain is whether the new council is progressive and brave enough to put the proposition to a public vote. Larry G. Williams, Omak

NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE teams don’t just deliver big bucks to their players. They also drop substantial sums into the pockets of politicians. The top team for donations is the Houston Texans, whose players, executives and coaches have contributed more than $293,000 to assorted candidates since 2009, according to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics. No. 2 is the San Diego Chargers, who shelled out $171,500 over the same period. No. 3 is the New York Jets, with almost $148,000. All three teams favored Republicans over Democrats, giving at least 70 percent of their contributions to GOP candidates. In fact, the NFL teams tilt most toward Republicans. Aside from those three, the other eight teams that gave at least 70 percent to the GOP were the Arizona Cardinals, Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, Carolina Panthers, Kansas City Chiefs, Washington Redskins, Detroit Lions and the Baltimore Ravens, according to the analysis of campaign finance disclosures. Just eight teams favored the Democrats with at least 70 percent of their donations: Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants, New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints.

We want action Every liberal, moderate or conservative I’ve spoken with had no expectation of the congressional “supercommittee” achieving any success. Most feel the automatic budget cuts designed to kick in after failure will be circumvented as well. No one can predict how the nuances of the issues (jobs, defense, economy, etc.) will have changed by May 1, 2012, yet we focus on the conjecture of President Obama and the Republican wanna-be’s now. Could it all be just crafty diversion and donor fleecing? We could be making phone calls (which have the greatest impact), and sending letters and emails to the current senators and representatives.

What legislation are they introducing/supporting to bring jobs and investment(s) back to the U.S.? What are they doing to prevent illegal immigrants from siphoning off financial aid intended for our citizens? What are they doing to promote our nation first and foreign interests second? Pick your issues — there are plenty to go around. Let us stop being sidetracked and entertained by political diversions and hold the people accountable who, by act or omission, created the mess we’re in. Make them produce now, or fire them next year. Bill Henry, Port Angeles

B Golf

Apple Cup tourney in PA APPLE CUP WEEKS haven’t ended well in my time as a Cougar fan. My fandom Michael turned in 2000 when I started Carman attending the finest university the Palouse has to offer. That’s right, I just called out the University of Idaho. The good guys in crimson-andgray are a disappointing 4-7 in the in-state rivalry since my arrival. On Saturday, Apple Cup game day, Peninsula Golf Club pro Chris Repass, a true Coug, will grin-andbear the insults of his Husky rivals as the club hosts the 20th annual Apple Cup Best Ball Tournament at the Port Angeles course. Sponsored by Marine View Beverage, the two-man best ball, eightstroke differential one-half combined handicap event will tee off at 8:30 a.m. Entry is $80 and includes individual KPs and long drive, a square on the Apple Cup football board, appetizers and hosted beverages, a cash honeypot with gross and net divisions, and team merchandise awards. For more information about the tournament, phone Peninsula at 360457-6501. The game will be on the Versus network at 4:30 p.m. Check for my game prediction at the end of the column.

Devils look toward semis Neah Bay tries to get grounded PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

NEAH BAY — Don’t let down. That’s the message coach Tony McCaulley is giving his Neah Bay football team this week as the Red Devils prepare for the state semifinals, just one win away from the Class 1B state championship game. Neah Bay (10-2) will meet Odessa-Harrington (8-3) on Lions Field in Moses Lake on Saturday starting at 3 p.m. That’s eight days after the Red Devils had one of their best wins in the history of their program when they beat nemesis Lummi 58-40 in the quarterfinals in Bellingham. The then-undefeated Blackhawks, defending state champions and No. 1-ranked team, had beaten the Red Devils six straight times, including twice this year and in the past two state semifinal games. And on top of that, Lummi was ahead 20-0 and within the Red Devils’ 5-yard line, ready to go up by four touchdowns in the quarterfinal game. “If they had scored that touchdown, we would not have beaten them,” McCaulley said. It didn’t help that quarterback Jared Tom had handed the ball off to standout fullback Deion Hoskins, whose running has bedeviled Neah Bay this year, with less than 5 yards to go for paydirt and that four-touch-

State Football down lead. Then came the season-saving play of the game for the Red Devils as Tyler McCaulley, the coach’s son, tackled Hoskins, forced him to fumble with Neah Bay recovering. “That was a big hit,” Tony McCaulley said. Two plays later Josiah Greene sprinted 78 yards for the score, the Red Devils scored on a twopoint conversion and suddenly it was a 20-8 game that soon became a 20-16 score by halftime.

Go shop, then go golf Sequim’s SkyRidge Golf Course will hold a Post-Turkey Day Scramble and Best Ball Tournament on Friday. Players will tee off from the green tees in the scramble portion on the front nine before switching to the silver tees for nine holes of best ball play. Tourney tee-off is set for 8:30 a.m. (barring frost). Cost is $60 per team and there is a $20 team honey pot. An optional horse race scramble will be held after the tourney for $5.

Post-Turkey Shoot Scramble Originally announced as being held last Saturday, Port Townsend Golf Club will hold a Post-Turkey Shoot Scramble on Saturday. The two-man Chapman scoring event will tee of at 10 a.m. The event offers participants the chance to bring home a turkey for a post-Thanksgiving dinner. Freezers keep turkeys pretty well, so freeze this one and have it for Christmas dinner or a future Sunday meal. Phone the course at 360-385-4547 for details on the turkey shoot event.

All you can play, $10 Port Townsend Golf Club is also letting players enjoy $10 Tuesdays with golfers paying $10 for the ability to play as much golf as they can manage. Players can also play in the Saturday Skins Game for $10 plus reduced greens fees.

Washington’s Keith Price, throwing against Oregon, will start in the Apple Cup on Saturday.

Dawgs hope to finish 7-5 BY TIM BOOTH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — Even with his team in a tailspin after dropping its third straight game, Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian still believes one more victory will be another sign of progress in Year 3. Sarkisian spoke Monday on the importance of how a win over Washington State on Saturday in the Apple Cup would give the Huskies a 7-5 record and a one-game regular season improvement over a year ago. But even with a victory over the rival Cougars, this finish is a complete change from a year ago, when the Huskies were the definition of resiliency in winning their final three games to reach bowl eligibility. This time, Washington is limping to the finish line, even after wrapping up a bowl berth nearly a month ago. “We’re excited about the fact that as a team come Saturday, hopefully around 8 o’clock, we finish our third regular season together with the best record we’ve had in three years together at the end of the regular season,” Sarkisian said. “To go from 5-7 to 6-6 and then ultimately 7-5 in year three is an exciting prospect for us, and I know it’s one our guys are really trying to get done.” When the Huskies got their sixth win in a 42-31 victory over Arizona on Oct. 30, Sarkisian hoped that the victory and having the pressure of getting bowl eligible would lessen the pressure and expectations on his players and allow them to play looser. Three straight losses later, and the Huskies are again answering questions about the continued struggles of their defense that for the fifth time this season gave up more than 450 yards of total offense in Saturday’s 38-21 loss to Oregon State. TURN



Roy Nott President and CEO, Paneltech Intl., Hoquiam, WA

The son and grandson of Pacific County loggers, I was proud to take a well-paying job in the northwest logging industry when I finished college. During a long stint with ITT Rayonier, I developed the company’s northwest forest business plan and managed its timberlands operations in Forks before I was sent east. But the magnificent forests and rivers of the wild coast eventually drew me back “home,” where I helped start Paneltech, a company that now employs 50 people at the Port of Grays Harbor.

This area badly needs new familyxxxxxx wage jobs. Some will come from our commercial forests. But we also need to attract more entrepreneurs that create more valueadded jobs. They will need uniquely-skilled people, the kind drawn here, as I was, because our ancient forests and river watersheds provide clean water, healthy salmon runs, world-class hunting and fishing and an unrivaled quality of life. The Wild Olympics plan will permanently protect these natural amenities vital to our economic future. But the plan also shows great sensitivity toward private property and the commercial timber base. Most public land considered in the proposal is already off limits to logging. It gives timber landowners an option to sell certain lands to the Park, but only if they want to. A healthier timber industry adding more value locally can contribute toward the restoration of our area’s economic vitality. But we also need new companies with new ideas, new value-added jobs and new sources of raw material. With the Wild Olympics plan, we can have both.

Join the conversation.

High emotions

this week. “It was a huge roller-coaster of a game we were on last week. I’m really concerned.” Another problem is the traveling time for the Red Devils. After driving to Bellingham and back last weekend, Neah Bay will travel all the way to Moses Lake for the semifinals. But McCaulley isn’t worried about the road trip. “That is not a distraction for us,” he said. “We’re used to traveling. It is what it is.”

“Wild Olympics will protect our economic future.”

Another note from PGC Peninsula Golf Club member Ev Tozier, 92, recently carded his sixth career hole-in-one. Yes, you read that correctly. “Ev is pretty amazing, his handicap is up to a 21 and he’s upset about it!” Repass said. “Eight of his last 20 scores he has shot his age.That’s pretty remarkable.” Tozier used a 7-wood on hole No. 4 at Peninsula Golf Club. Keep hitting it straight Ev!

“That was huge,” McCaulley said about Greene’s touchdown run. The momentum had changed. The contest went back-andforth after that with the Red Devils finally gaining control late in the fourth quarter.

Marcy earns All-America Carman: Holiday party honors in cross country PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — Stephanie Marcy finished her cross country career at Stanford an All-American. The former Sequim High School star finished 32nd at the NCAA Championship cross country meet at the Lavern Gibson Championship Course on Monday in Terre Haute, Ind. In Division I, only the top 40 runners at the national championships

qualify for All-American honors. Marcy was able to meet that standard after finishing Monday’s 6,000-meter race in 20 minutes, 22.6 seconds. It marked the first time Marcy attained All-American status in her four-year cross country career at Stanford. She’s also a fourtime All-American in track and field. Marcy won two Class 2A state championships while

running for the Sequim Wolves — one in track and the other in cross country. That success translated into a full athletic scholarship at Stanford. After red-shirting her freshman year in Palo Alto, Marcy has become one of the lead runners for the Cardinal. She will close out her athletic career at Stanford with one last season of track and field this spring.

The Titans don’t use the spread and use more conventional formations, according to McCaulley. “They are more like we are,” he said. “That’s kind of nice. “On the three tapes I saw on them, they are runorientated and try to control the game tempo to keep guys honest.” Just the kind of team to help the Red Devils get grounded for the semifinals.

The USA rolled to another Presidents Cup victory, getting an early lead in the foursomes portion of the event and never letting their foot off the pedal in singles play. The win pushed the USA’s record to 7-1-1 alltime in the competition. American captain Fred Couples received a lot of praise from his team, including Tiger Woods, who got up and down from the sand for a cup-clinching win over Aussie Aaron Baddeley. “I’ve been on a variety of different teams over the years, and this has been just a great atmosphere to be around,” Woods told The Associated Press. “And it starts from the captain. Would Freddie make a great Ryder Cup captain? Absolutely. He’s just a great captain, period. He’s fun to play for. I’m thankful that he picked me.” Wood’s selection over PGA Champion Keegan Bradley had been a hot topic in the run-up to the up. I’ll take a safer bet this time, I see Couples’ future selection as the 2014 Ryder Cup captain as a nobrainer.

B4 $ Briefly . . . Plastic bag ban sought by Seattle SEATTLE — The Seattle City Council has proposed a ban of plastic carryout bags to help protect Puget Sound and marine life. The bill introduced Monday would ban the plastic bags from grocers, retailers and department stores. Customers would be charged 5 cents for each paper bag to encourage reusable bags. Plastic bags have been blamed for littering streets, polluting oceans and harming marine life. In 2008, the Seattle City Council voted to charge a 20-cent fee on paper and plastic bags. The plastics industry spent $1.4 million backing a referendum to overturn the fee, and voters soundly defeated the fee in 2009.

No biomass VANCOUVER, Wash. — Plans have been canceled for a power plant in Vancouver that would have burned wood debris. Schneider Electric of Seattle had a contract with Clark County to build and operate a $28 million plant to supply heating and cooling power plus hot water for five county buildings. The company told the county Friday it was terminating the contract because delays and opposition made the project miss the deadline for an $8 million federal grant.

Bush-era tax cuts doom deal on debt THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The Democratic plan would add about $3.1 trillion to the deficit over the same period and make the wealthiest Americans pay about $800 billion more in taxes. The supercommittee was formed to come up with a package that reduces government borrowing by at least $1.2 trillion over the next decade. But with a Wednesday deadline approaching, the committee’s co-chairs conceded failure Monday. Democrats had said they would accept significant cuts to benefit programs like Medicare and Medicaid, but only if Republicans would agree to tax increases.

WASHINGTON — Hidden dangers lurk in some of those less-expensive toys that parents might grab as stocking stuffers this time of year — like a Sesame Street Oscar the Grouch doll. The small furry green Oscar, purchased for $6.99, was one of the toys singled out in the annual toy safety report from the U.S. Public Interest Research Group. The consumer advocate’s report, released Tuesday, found just over a dozen toys on store shelves that violate federal safety standards. Some had unsafe levels of lead or chemicals called phthalates, and others contained small parts that young children could choke on. Besides Oscar, other toys deemed potentially dangerous included a plastic book

for babies, a $1 plastic minicrossbow that fires off little balls and a hand-held “whirly wheel.” The Oscar doll has a small hat that could come off easily, which is a possible choking hazard, PIRG said. The crossbow’s small parts also put young children at risk of choking, according to the report. The book and the whirly wheel had high levels of lead, according to the study. But an importer of the whirly wheel disputes that and said the company’s own testing shows the spinning magnetic toy with lead levels well below the limit. PIRG also warned about toys that are too loud and could lead to damaged hearing, such as an Elmo talking cellphone that the group said tested just above voluntary industry

noise limits. Ed Mierzwinski, the group’s consumer program director, said industrial chemicals and toxins in toys were the biggest problems the group found this year. Exposure to lead can cause irreversible brain damage, and some studies have linked phthalates to reproductive problems.

Toy makers respond Toy makers played down the report and pointed to government figures showing sharp declines in the number of national toy recalls. “All eyes have been on toy safety for several years now,” said Joan Lawrence, the Toy Industry Association’s vice president for safety standards. “I am confident that the toys on store shelves are safe. The toy industry works

year-round on this.” Government figures show 34 toy recalls in fiscal year 2011 — down from 46 recalls the previous year, 50 in 2009 and 172 in 2008. Recalls related to lead were down from 19 in 2008 to four this past year. PIRG credited a 2008 law that set stronger standards for children’s products, including strict limits on lead, for helping to make many of the products on store shelves safer for youngsters. The law was passed after a wave of recalls of leadtainted toys. PIRG reviewed about 200 toys and other children’s products from major retailers and dollar stores for its 26th annual “Trouble in Toyland” report. The full list and report can be found at www.uspirg. org/edfund/toysafety-2011.

Express, priority rates rising THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — The cash-strapped U.S. Postal Service is raising rates for its more profitable express mail and priority mail shipping next year, part of its efforts to stave off bankruptcy.

The new prices take effect Jan. 22 and include the introduction of a new flat rate of $39.95 for express mail boxes, with separate increases for letters. Previously, prices were $13.25 or higher based on package weight

and distance. The Postal Service said the rate hikes still make its shipping the best value when compared with private companies such as UPS and FedEx. The new prices amount to a roughly 5 percent increase.

They are in addition to a previously announced 1-cent hike in first-class mail to 45 cents. The independent Postal Regulatory Commission will review the proposed hikes before they take effect.

Bank earnings hit four-year high THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Bank earnings rose over the summer to their highest level in more than four years, while the number of troubled banks fell for the second straight quarter, federal regulators reported Tuesday. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. said the banking industry earned $35.3 billion in the JulySeptember quarter, up from $23.8 billion in the same period last year. More than 60 percent of banks reported improved earnings. The better earnings and fewer troubled banks suggest that the industry is steadily improving from the depths of the 2008 financial crisis. “Bank balance sheets are stronger in a number of ways, and the industry is generally profitable, but the recovery is by no means complete,” said Martin Gruenberg, FDIC’s acting chairman. The FDIC also said there

were 844 banks on its confidential “problem” list in the quarter, or roughly 11.5 percent of all federally insured banks. That was down from 865 the April-June period, which was the first quarter in five years to show a decline.

Big banks fuel growth Banks with assets exceeding $10 billion drove the bulk of the earnings growth. They made up 1.4 percent of all banks but accounted for about $29.8 billion of the industry’s earnings in the third quarter. Included in this group are Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Wells Fargo & Co.

Most of these banks have recovered with help from federal bailout money and record-low borrowing rates. The bulk of the gains were because banks, especially credit card companies, set aside less money for potential losses, FDIC officials said. In the July-September period, banks put aside $18.6 billion, the lowest amount in four years. The industry continues to struggle with flat growth in loans. Banks’ loan balances increased $21.8 billion in the third quarter. It was a modest gain, but it marked the second straight quarter in three years that balances have grown, the FDIC said. “After three years of shrinking loan portfolios,

any loan growth is positive news for the industry and the economy,” Gruenberg said. Still, lending is well below healthy levels. So far this year, 90 banks have failed. That’s down from the 157 banks shuttered last year — the most for one year since the height of the savings and loan crisis in 1992 — and 140 in 2009.

WASHINGTON — A long-running war between Democrats and Republicans over Bush-era tax cuts doomed the debt supercommittee’s chances of reaching a deal. Efforts to overhaul the tax code may await the same fate as both parties gear up to make taxes a central issue in the 2012 elections. Republicans insisted during the supercommittee negotiations that curbing tax breaks to raise revenues be coupled with guarantees that all the Bush tax cuts would continue beyond 2012. The tax cuts, which affect families at every income level, were enacted under President George W. Bush and were extended through 2012 under President Barack Obama. Republicans for years have bashed Democrats as eager to raise taxes — a theme they will employ often in next year’s elections — so they weren’t about to agree to a tax hike unless they also could take credit for preventing a huge tax increase scheduled to take effect in 2013. Democrats countered that the supercommittee was created to reduce the budget deficit, not add to it by extending tax cuts. Most Democrats, including Obama, want to extend the Bush tax cuts only to individuals making less than $200,000 a year and married couples making less than $250,000. Extending all the Bush tax cuts, including provisions to spare millions of middle-class families from paying the alternative minimum tax, would add $3.9 trillion to the budget deficit over the next decade, according to projections by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.
