Weather delaying recovery of possible tsunami debris Scientists fear massive dock harbors invasive organisms PENINSULA DAILY NEWS



LAPUSH — Scientists are concerned that a huge dock that washed ashore in a remote section of Olympic National Park south of LaPush is Japanese tsunami wreckage — and might be carrying invasive marine organisms. Federal, state and tribal agencies are mounting a coordinated mission to reach the site on the ground

to evaluate the massive dock “for any potential invasive aquatic species that may have ‘hitchhiked’ while it was drifting in the ocean and to develop a response,” according to a state Department of Ecology statement. Park spokeswoman Barb Maynes said a rapidresponse team was assembling in Forks on Wednesday with plans to hike to the dock today, weather permitting.

“It’s extremely windy there,” Maynes said. “There is a high-wind warning out there along the coast, as well as high surf, and the low tide needed for beach access has already passed for today,” she said Wednesday. Authorities also want to conclusively determine that the dock is part of debris from Japan’s 2011 tsunami, officials said.

Spotted on beach It was spotted on a beach between LaPush and the mouth of the Hoh River by a Coast Guard helicopter crew Tuesday.

The National Park Service has closed the wilderness area between Hoh Head and Toleak Point to all public entry. Rangers are concerned about the safety of people encountering the large, heavy dock in the ocean surf. The dock washed ashore about halfway between Hoh Head and Toleak Point in an extremely remote section of Olympic National Park. The response team includes members of the National Park Service, coastal ecologists and academics who studied a dock that washed ashore near


A large dock that washed up between LaPush and the Hoh River is seen from a helicopter. Newport, Ore., in June. “This is very much a team effort,” Maynes said. The Coast Guard had been looking for the dock since a fishing vessel spotted it adrift in the Pacific Ocean off the Olympic Pen-

PORT TOWNSEND — Jefferson Transit will end its Sunday service in July, with June 30 to be the final day the service is offered. The board voted 4-1 Tuesday to end the service because of lower-thanexpected sales tax revenue projections.

ROBERT H. BORK, 85, who stepped in to fire the Watergate prosecutor at Richard Nixon’s behest and whose failed 1980s nomination to the Supreme Court helped draw the modern boundaries of cultural fights over abortion, civil rights and other issues, has died. Robert H. Bork Jr. confirmed his father died Wednesday at Virginia Hospital Center in Mr. Bork Arlington, in 1987 Va. The son said Mr. Bork died from complications of heart ailments. Brilliant, blunt and piercingly witty, Mr. Bork had a long career in politics and the law that took him from respected academic to a totem of conservative grievance. Along the way, Mr. Bork was accused of being a partisan hatchet man for Nixon when, as the thirdranking official at the Justice Department, he fired Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox in the Saturday Night Massacre of 1973. Attorney General Elliot Richardson resigned rather than fire Cox. The next in line, William Ruckelshaus, refused to fire Cox and was himself fired. In 1987, toward the end of Ronald Reagan’s second term, Mr. Bork was nominated to fill the seat vacated by Justice Lewis F. Powell. The Senate voted 58-42 to defeat him, after the first national political and lobbying offensive mounted

against a judicial nominee. It was the largest negative vote ever recorded for a Supreme Court nominee. The Senate experience embittered Mr. Bork and hardened many of his conservative positions, even as it gave him prominence as an author and long popularity on the conservative speaking circuit. The process begat a verb, “to bork,” meaning vilification of a nominee on ideological grounds.

_________ AMNON LIPKINSHAHAK, 68, a former Israeli military chief who later became a Cabinet minister, died Wednesday after a long battle with cancer. Revered in Israel as a daring commando and admired general, Mr. Lipkin-Shahak’s term as military chief in the 1990s included coping with a wave of suicide bombings against Israel along with the military coordination that accompanied nascent peace talks. Even while still in uniform, he conducted negotiations with Israel’s bitterest enemies and later in life became a staunch supporter of peace with Syria and the Palestinians. Mr. Lipkin-Shahak oversaw a 16-day military campaign, codenamed “Grapes of Wrath,” against Hezbol-

lah guerrillas in Lebanon in 1996. He began his military service in the paratrooper brigade and Mr. Lipkinwas twice Shahak decorated in 1999 with Israel’s Medal of Courage, one of the military’s highest honors, for his conduct in special operations.

Benghazi panel: Security staffing was insufficient

Briefly: World South Korea elects its first female leader SEOUL, South Korea — Conservative ruling party candidate Park Geun-hye was elected South Korea’s first female president Wednesday, despite being the daughter of a divisive military strongman. After five years of high tension under unpopular incumbent Lee Myungbak, Park’s win also could mean a new drive to start Park talks with rival North Korea, which launched a widely condemned rocket last week. Her win also is history-making: No Korean woman is believed to have ruled since the ninth century. Park becomes the most powerful figure in a country where women often are paid less than men, trapped in low-paying jobs despite first-class educations and struggle to raise families and pursue careers. After liberal candidate Moon Jae-in, son of North Korean refugees, conceded defeat in a close race, Park said that she would dedicate herself to achieving national unity. “This election is the people’s victory,” Park told a crowd of people packing a Seoul plaza.

Secretary General of the Election Committee Zaghloul el-Balshi attributed his resignation to “a sudden health crisis.” Relatives told local Egyptian media that el-Balshi had undergone eye surgery.

Obama sets deadline for new gun policies Proposals are due in January THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Spurred by a horrific elementary school shooting, President Barack Obama vowed to send Congress new policy proposals for reducing gun violence by January. “This time, the words need to lead to action,” said Obama on Wednesday. He tasked Vice President Joe Biden with leading an administration-wide effort to create the new recommendations and pledged to push for their implementation without delay. The president bristled at suggestions that he had been silent on the issue during his first four years in office.

‘Wake-up call’ But he acknowledged that Friday’s deadly shooting was “a wake-up call for all of us.” Twenty children and six adults were killed when a man carrying a military-style rifle stormed Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., on Friday morning. The president also called on Congress to reinstate an assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 and to pass legislation that would close the gun-show “loophole” that allows people to buy firearms from private dealers without a background check. Obama added he wanted Congress to pursue limiting highcapacity ammunition clips. The Newtown massacre has prompted several congressional gun rights supporters to consider new laws to control firearms. In an appeal to gun owners, Obama said he believes in the Second Amendment and the country’s strong tradition of gun ownership. And he said that “the vast majority of gun owners in America are responsible.”







Time magazine announced its selection of President Barack Obama as its Person of the Year on Wednesday. Other nominees were Apple CEO Tim Cook, Egypt President Mohamed Morsi and Malala Yousafzai, the teenager shot in Pakistan. “We should be able to keep an irresponsible, law-breaking few from buying a weapon of war,” he said. Obama tasked the Biden-led team with considering ways to improve mental health resources and address ways to create a culture that doesn’t promote violence. The departments of Justice, Education, Health and Human

Services and Homeland Security, along with other agencies, all will be part of the process. Biden’s role in the process is considered an asset in getting a new gun law passed. The vice president spent decades in the Senate and can use his long-standing relationships with lawmakers to build support for White House measures.

Two sides on ‘fiscal cliff’ talks supposedly are ‘pretty close’

BBC clears top execs


LONDON — A BBC review has absolved senior executives of trying to bury an explosive story about one of its bestknown children’s television stars, saying management errors were to blame for the fact that a planned expose on pedophilia allegations against the late Jimmy Savile was canceled. Institutional chaos and confusion — but not a cover-up — were to blame for the BBC’s disastrous decision to shelve the “Newsnight” program, the review found Wednesday. Pollard told the media that the show’s investigators got it right. “They had found clear and compelling evidence that Jimmy Savile was a pedophile,” he said. When the rival ITV network broadcast a similar exposé of Savile, who died in 2011 at age 84, the BBC came under fire. The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Optimistic despite a tightening deadline, President Barack Obama said Wednesday he and House Speaker John Boehner are “pretty close” to a grand fiscal deal to avoid a firstof-the-year shock to the economy. But he said that congressional Republicans “keep on finding ways to say no as opposed to finding ways to say yes.” Obama’s comments came shortly after the White House threatened to veto Boehner’s backup plan for averting the “fiscal cliff.”

$1 million incomes Boehner’s measure, a so-called Plan B, would block tax increases from being triggered Jan. 1 on everyone but those whose incomes exceed $1 million. Boehner is planning a House vote on his proposal Thursday,

Quick Read

hoping it would raise pressure on Obama to make concessions as both sides continue reaching for a bipartisan deal on averting the “fiscal cliff.” Boehner Boehner, a Republican from Ohio, responded to Obama with a defiant tone. In an appearance before reporters that lasted under a minute, Boehner called on Obama to offer a plan balanced between spending cuts and tax increases, and predicted that the House would pass his backup plan. “Then the president will have a decision to make,” Boehner said. “He can call on the Senate Democrats to pass that bill, or he can be responsible for the largest tax increase in American history.” Obama dismissed Boehner’s

proposal, saying it would not provide unemployment insurance for 2 million jobless Americans and would result in higher taxes for families that benefit from various tax credits. “That violates the core principles that were debated during the course of this election and that the American people determined was the wrong way to go,” Obama said. Instead, Obama said, he and Boehner in their talks had moved significantly toward each other before talks reached a lull Tuesday. “What separates us is probably a few hundred billion dollars,” Obama said. “The idea that we would put our economy at risk because you can’t bridge that gap doesn’t make a lot of sense.” Earlier, Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck said White House opposition to the GOP backup plan “is growing more bizarre and irrational by the day.”

NORTHBOUND LANES OF Interstate 5 in far Northern California reopened at 5 a.m. Wednesday after a series of collisions involving about 60 vehicles shut down the freeway. The California Highway Patrol said the freeway reopened about 12 hours after authorities got a report of a crash north of Yreka at the Oregon border. No reason was given, but the CHP said the road was icy. Eight people reportedly were transported to hospitals. Six of them were treated and released. Two others were admitted for serious injuries. More than two dozen vehicles had to be towed from the freeway.

A MANHUNT FOR two bank robbers who pulled off a daring escape from a high-rise Chicago lockup pushed into a second day Wednesday, with the FBI offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the men’s apprehension. Joseph “Jose” Banks, 37, and Kenneth Conley, 38, apparently pulled out the bars of a cell window and descended almost 20 stories to escape the Metropolitan Correctional Center. Jail employees noticed a makeshift rope at around 7 a.m. Tuesday. Nearby business owners said helicopters and canine units did not swarm the area until almost 8:30 a.m.

Gallup asked about 1,000 people in each of 148 countries last year if they smiled or laughed a lot. In Panama and Paraguay, 85 percent of those polled said yes to all five. The rest: El Salvador, Venezuela, Trinidad and Tobago, Thailand, Guatemala, the Philippines, Ecuador and Costa Rica.

AN EGYPTIAN SECURITY official said ousted President Hosni Mubarak has been transferred to a Cairo military hospital after slipping and injuring his head and chest in prison. For months, there have been conflicting reports about the health of the 84-year-old Mubarak, who was sentenced in June to life in prison for failing to stop the killing of hundreds of protesters during last year’s uprising. He is the first Arab president to serve a prison sentence. Gen. Mohammed Ibrahim, the deputy interior minister, said Wednesday that Mubarak will be returned to prison after treatment.

SEATTLE — The U.S. Army said Wednesday it will seek the death penalty against the soldier accused of killing 16 Afghan villagers in a predawn rampage in March. The announcement followed a pretrial hearing last month for Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, 39, who faces premeditated murder and other charges in the attack on two villages in southern Afghanistan. The slayings drew such angry protests that the U.S. temporarily halted combat operations in Afghanistan, and it was three weeks before American investigators could reach the crime scenes. Prosecutors said Bales left his remote base in southern Afghanistan early March 11, attacked one village, returned to the base then slipped away again to attack another nearby compound. Of the 16 people killed, nine were children. No date has been set for his court martial, which will be held at Joint Base Lewis-McChord south of Seattle. Bales’ civilian lawyer, John Henry Browne, didn’t immediately return an email seeking comment Wednesday. But Tuesday, he told The Associated Press that he met with Army officials last week to argue that his client shouldn’t face the

During last month’s preliminary hearing, prosecutors built a strong eyewitness case against the veteran soldier, with troops recounting how they saw Bales return to the base alone, covered in blood. Afghan witnesses questioned via a video link from a forward operating base near Kandahar City described the horror of that night. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Bales tested positive for steroids three days after the killings, and other soldiers testified that Bales had been drinking the evening of the massacre. Prosecutors, in asking for a court-martial trial, have pointed to statements Bales made after he was apprehended, saying his comments demonstrated a “clear memory of what he had done and consciousness of wrongdoing.” Several soldiers testified at a hearing that Bales returned to the base alone just before dawn, covered in blood, and that he made incriminating statements such as, “I thought I was doing the right thing.” The U.S. military has not executed anyone since 1961. There are five men currently facing military death sentences, all for murders committed stateside. Nidal Hasan, charged in the 2009 rampage that killed 13 and wounded more than two dozen others at Fort Hood in Texas, also could face the death penalty if convicted; no date has been set for his court martial. For Bales to face execution, the court-martial jury must unanimously find him guilty of premeditated murder; that at least one aggravating factor applies, such as multiple or child victims; and that the aggravating factor substantially outweighs any extenuating or mitigating circumstances.


PORT ANGELES — A bad network card in the Capacity Provisioning Inc. operating center left a handful of Port Angeles customers with slow Internet and shoddy telephone connections Wednesday morning, company officials confirmed. “The Internet was just real slow,” CPI Vice President Craig Johnson said. “Phone systems are real sensitive to that.” Johnson said in a followup email that the issues were caused by a faulty network card in the CPI rack, a wall of servers, routers and switches at the Port Angeles company’s network operating center. “The card went ‘crazy’ and was spewing Ethernet packets, flooding that section of the network and making it appear to run slow,” Johnson said. “Unplugging that server has fixed the problem until the card can be replaced.” Johnson said four or five customers, including the Peninsula Daily News, had slow Internet beginning at about 7 a.m. “Our engineers identified and fixed the problem around 10:30 [a.m.],” Johnson said. CPI installed the citywide wireless system for Port Angeles.

Snowplow driver severs power line, is freed from cab PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

COYLE — A Jefferson County snowplow drove off the road and severed a power line Wednesday morning while clearing roads on the Coyle Peninsula, creating an electrical hazard that confined the driver to his truck for about an hour. The Quilcene Fire Department received a call about the mishap at Milepost 3 on Coyle Road at 11:39 a.m., said Firefighter/ EMT Kevin Winn, one of those dispatched to the scene. The driver stayed in the truck until 12:34 p.m., when Puget Sound Energy crews arrived to cut the wire and allow him to leave

Radio systems The communication between firefighters, PSE, Public Works and the driver was accomplished through a relay between different radio systems, Winn said. After the driver was freed, he continued on his plow route, Winn said. The Quilcene Fire Department was the only emergency responder on the scene, Winn said.

Snow falls on slopes THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — Most of Washington is seeing snow, and it’s really piling up in the mountains. A storm that moved in Wednesday morning dropped wet snow at lower elevations of Western Washington. Amounts were more than an inch near Copalis Crossing, 2 inches at Poulsbo, an inch at Bremerton, half an inch at Everett and lesser amounts at Seattle, Olympia and Tacoma.

The Western Washington snow turned to rain, but forecasters said the storm will leave up to 2 feet of new snow in the Cascades by this morning. Heavy snow also is forecast on the east slopes of the Cascades with widespread snow across the Inland Northwest. Washington State Patrol troopers answered 119 calls Wednesday morning in Kitsap, Mason, Jefferson and Clallam counties because of snowy roads and falling trees.

singer said. No one was living in the structure, but the electricity was on, Baysinger said. The department will not be investigating the fire under the “good assumption” that it was probably caused by an electrical malfunction, he added. “We don’t investigate unless we have reason to believe it was arson or something suspicious, but this doesn’t seem suspicious by any means,” Baysinger said. “An investigation is up to the insurance company,” he added. An earlier report from Peninsula Communications

that the blaze was at 250 Richwine Road — which was reported online at www.peninsuladailynews. com — may have been incorrect, Pen Com Communications Manager Steve Romberg said. The fire was reported by a passer-by who said the fire was just before 265 Richwine Road, Romberg said. There was no county Assessor’s Office record of a residence at 250 Richwine Road.

Stenson: ‘Haunts us’ CONTINUED FROM A1

been framed. The state Supreme Court upheld the stay of execution Dec. 1, 2008, and the state Department of Corrections canceled the execution scheduled for Dec. 3, 2008. After the state court overturned the 1994 conviction, Stenson was transferred back to the Clallam County jail. Defense attorney Sherilyn Peterson filed an Oct. 5 motion to move Stenson to the 1,268-bed Washington Corrections Center in Shelton. She argued that Stenson’s medical needs were not being met in the 120bed jail. Peterson said Stenson has had several heart attacks, Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, acid reflux, gout and a hernia. Williams ruled that Stenson’s medical needs were being met in the jail. The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office and state Department of Corrections agreed to split the costs of transferring Stenson to the state holding facility last month.

“The decision was reached after consultation with Frank and Denise’s families, who would like to see the case concluded,” Kelly said in a statement. “While they continue to believe the death penalty is appropriate, they have already waited 19 years only to see a conviction snatched away at the last minute and been told they must endure the rollerDEB KELLY coaster of litigation again.

‘Architect’ of Port of PT dies at 78 BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — Conrad Pirner, a former Port of Port Townsend commissioner, died Monday after a long illness. He was 78. “Conrad was one of the architects of the current port,� said Deputy Port Director Jim Pivarnik. “A lot of the things that the port is doing today was put in motion when he was a commissioner.� Diane Pirner recalls her husband as “larger than life.� “He had a huge personality that filled the room. Everyone wanted to come to

our parties,� she said. She said a celebration of life will be held at a future time in Port Townsend. Pivarnik said Conrad Pirner was “an amazing guy . . . always super jovial.� “He always had a story to tell,� Pivarnik added. “He cruised everywhere and had a lot of great experiences.�

Born in Ohio Pirner, who had been in Dungeness Courte Alzheimer’s Care in Sequim since 2010, had suffered from Lewy body dementia and Parkinson’s disease since 2005. Pirner was born July 14,

1934, in Toledo, Ohio. He worked in the grocery business and as a bread delivery man prior to moving in 1968 to Colorado, where he started his own food brokerage business. After he sold his company in 1994, the family moved to Port Townsend, which they chose so he could attend the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding, his widow said. He was appointed to the port commission in 1996 and then was elected, serving until 2005. At Pirner’s final port meeting in 2005, Commissioner Bob Sokol commended him on his years of service and his commitment

to the success of the port. Sokol then said, according to the minutes, that Pirner’s two standout traits were his dedication to longrange improvements and his great sense of humor.

Survivors Conrad and Diane Pirner were together for 30 years and were wed in 1999. He is survived by his wife, Diane; a brother, Carl (Carol) Pirner of Lakewood, Colo.; four children, Suzy (Tim) Smith of Aurora, Colo., David (Cindy) Pirner of Wrightwood, Calif., Kathy Pirner of Texas and Larry Pirner of Anchorage, Alaska; five stepchildren,

Dan (Vicki) Sharpe of North Glen, Colo., Fred (Sherry) Sharpe of Victorville, Calif., Vincent (Tami) Sharpe of Westminster, Colo., Scott (Tina) Sharpe of Apple Valley, Calif., and Nicole (Jason) Castenada of Aurora, Colo.; and several grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Pirner’s remains were donated to the University of Washington Medical School, his widow said.

Will cigarette makers jump into pot market? Indications unclear after legalization in 2 states THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SPOKANE — The states of Washington and Colorado legalized possession of small amounts of marijuana in the November elections, but it is unclear if any cigarette makers plan to supply either market. Marijuana remains illegal under federal law. President

Barack Obama indicated last week that going after individual users won’t be a priority. But there’s no firm indication yet what action the Justice Department might take against states or businesses that participate in the nascent pot market.

Evil gains foothold in America TRYING TO EXPLAIN an evil act like the one that killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., is on a par with explaining how the universe was formed. The natural human reaction Cal after extending Thomas sympathy and prayers for the victims and their families is to ask what actions might have been taken to prevent the massacre. More gun laws? Connecticut already has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation. Those laws did not prevent a man with evil intent from carrying out his heinous act. Some will blame TV and video game violence. Depictions of murder and other violent acts on TV and in the movies have grown in recent years, but people killed people long before TV and movies. Such explanations are too easy. Would armed guards at Sandy Hook have helped?

Possibly, but do we want guards at every elementary school, patrolling not only the halls, but playgrounds where kids ought to be able to play in an atmosphere of fun and freedom? That may be where we are headed. What about locked doors? Sandy Hook’s doors were reportedly secured, but the shooter still managed to somehow gain access. As much as humans have tried for millennia to prevent evil acts, we have not succeeded. In the modern era, Woodrow Wilson believed his League of Nations would usher in peace on Earth, if not good will to men. The United Nations followed that aborted experiment. The U.N. has been equally unsuccessful in preventing the slaughter of innocents and other evil acts.

In some it is controlled by an inner compass or by laws and cultural constraints. When it is not, we get Sandy Hook and tragedies like it. We get what we do not understand and cannot begin to fathom. There may be no greater expression of evil than the murder of children in their classrooms. In calling for prayers, officials have taken an important first step in combating evil, but a larger question should be asked. Perhaps theologians, pastors, priests and rabbis are the ones to ask it, but permit me a suggestion. If there is a source of evil, is there also a source of good? And if there is, has that source for good been offended by all of the accumulated evil we are piling up, affording it an upper hand? As a friend of mine says: “Not a sermon, just a thought.”

After Newtown, lessons from Australia THE INITIAL SHOCK of the latest semiautomatic-weaponfueled massacre has passed, but the grief only grows. Now the funerals occur Amy with a daily drumbeat. Goodman It will take not 27 but 28 funerals, as the Newtown, Conn., shooter, Adam Lanza, took his own life after slaughtering his mother at home, then 20 children, ages 6 and 7, and six women at the Sandy Hook Elementary School who tried to protect them. Since President Barack Obama took office, there have been at least 16 major mass shootings, after which he has offered somber words of condolence and called for national healing. But what is really needed is gun control, serious gun control, as was swiftly implemented in Australia in 1996, after another gunman went on a senseless shooting spree. On April 28, 1996, Martin Bry-

ant, a troubled 28-year-old from New Town, Tasmania, took a Colt AR-15 semiautomatic rifle to the nearby tourist destination of Port Arthur. By the time he was arrested early the next day, he had killed 35 people and wounded 23. The reaction in Australia was profound, especially since it was a nation of gun lovers, target shooters and hunters. The massacre provoked an immediate national debate over gun control. Strict laws were quickly put in place, banning semiautomatic weapons and placing serious controls on gun ownership. Since that time, there has not been one mass shooting in Australia. Rebecca Peters took part in that debate. She is now an international arms-control advocate and led the campaign to reform Australia’s gun laws after the Port Arthur massacre. Days after the Newtown massacre, I asked Peters to explain how the gun laws changed in Australia in 1996: “The new law banned semiautomatic rifles and shotguns, assault weapons, and not only new sales . . . we banned importa-














tion sales, we banned ownership, so currently owned weapons were prohibited. “The government bought those guns back at a rate of about the retail price plus about 10 percent. You couldn’t get them repaired. You couldn’t sell them.” Like the United States, Australia’s gun laws were a patchwork of state laws. Prime Minister John Howard, from the center-right Liberal Party, took leadership to put strong, national uniform standards into place. Howard wrote a reflection on the gun laws last August, immediately after the Aurora, Colo., massacre. In his piece, titled “Brothers in Arms, Yes, but the U.S. Needs to Get Rid if its Guns,” Howard writes of a talk given at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library in 2008: “There was an audible gasp of amazement at my expressing pride in what Australia had done to limit the use of guns. I had been given a sharp reminder that, despite the many things we have in common with our American friends, there is a huge cultural divide when it comes to the free availability of firearms.” Likewise, in Britain, after the

March 1996 school massacre in Dunblane, Scotland, which left 16 children ages 5 and 6 dead along with two teachers, handguns were quickly banned. Statistics show that in both countries, gun violence, murders and successful suicides all are down. What is possible here in the United States? California Sen. Dianne Feinstein promises an assault-weapons ban, to be entered for debate on the new Senate’s first day of business in January. She says: “It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession [of assault weapons], not retroactively, but prospectively. “And it will ban the same for big clips, drums or strips of more than 10 bullets,” adding, however: “We exempt over 900 specific weapons that will not fall under the bill.” “Nine hundred exemptions?” I asked Paul Barrett, assistant managing editor at Bloomberg Businessweek and author of Glock: The Rise of America’s Gun: “The 1994 so-called assault weapons ban was one of the most porous, ineffective pieces of legis-

lation. It was shot through with loopholes. “It had no applicability to weapons that were made and sold on the day before enactment. . . . If Congress is not proposing to ban weapons that are already out there, then that leaves millions and millions of weapons.” President Obama has now appointed Vice President Joe Biden to chair a commission to review possible actions. Commissions, though, too often allow the moment to pass, the national attention to be diverted. In Australia, the comprehensive ban was in place within weeks, shepherded by a conservative prime minister. How long must we wait for sensible gun-control laws in the United States? How many children will it take?

PORT TOWNSEND — Ten yoga teachers, 108 sun salutations, “L-O-V-E.” It’s a gathering like no other at the Madrona MindBody Institute, and it truly is for the whole of the community, said Jen Bates, host and mixer of the music. Bates and her fellow local yoga instructors will lead nine sets of 12 sun salutations — flowing sets of poses — from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. Friday at Madrona, which is on the Fort Worden State Park campus at 200 Battery Way.

‘Soulstice’ dance Admission to the gathering, which will flow into a 9 p.m. potluck and a 10 p.m. “Soulstice” dance, is a suggested $15 donation to Dove House, which provides advocacy services for domestic violence survivors. “We’ll be in the beautiful Madrona space with tons of room, candles and wicked music,” Bates promised.

For the 2012 gathering, she’s brought together instructors from many Port Townsend yoga studios. They include Colleen Swantner, who has taught here for 35 years, and Nöle Giulini, who will guide students through a 15- to 20-minute savasana, the deep-relaxation closing to a yoga practice. The potluck meal afterward is a bring-your-ownbeverage and dinner party, Bates noted. The Soulstice dance following will be led by Aletia Alvarez, who also hosts a 9 a.m. “Body Prayer” and 10:30 a.m. “Soulfull Sunday” dance Sunday in the Madrona ballroom.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Thursday, December 20, 2012 SECTION

Weather isn’t helping anglers I HATE TO be an Ebenezer Scrooge, but the fishing prospects for the holidays aren’t looking favorable to anglers. Blame it on Lee the rain, the snow, the wind Horton and the cold. But this isn’t completely bad news, is it? It means you’ll have more time to deck the halls and wear strange sweaters with those you love — and maybe those you only “like,” as well. Or is doing those types of things the reason why you go fishing in the first place? Well, this is the contract you sign when you decide to make the outdoors your hobby. In the good times, you’re pulling 50-pound halibut out of the Strait of Juan de Fuca or Pacific Ocean. In the not-so-good times, you are sitting around the house talking about current events with your brother-in-law while his kids spill hot chocolate (with marshmallows) all over your new carpet.

Rivers rising This may come as no surprise, but the rivers are way too high for quality steelhead fishing. “It’s not too pretty, I can tell you that,” Bob Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods (360-374-6330) in Forks said. There has been too much rain lately. And when it isn’t raining, it has been so windy that you’re forced to be on the lookout for limbs flying all over the place. “What’s the word I’m looking for . . . it has been just rough,” Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-683-1950) in Sequim said. “It has not been real conducive [to good fishing].” Bob Aunspach of Swain’s General Store (360-452-2357) in Port Angeles said the rivers came down last weekend, but “they’re shooting straight back up again. “We just have to wait until some of this rain settles down.” Which isn’t likely to happen in the next few days. “I looked at the weather forecast and it’s supposed to pour down rain today, tomorrow, the next day, the next day, the next day and the next day,” Gooding said of the weather around the West End rivers.

Strait talk Weather conditions are negatively affecting the blackmouth fishery on the Strait, too. In this case, the wind has been the culprit. “It is not hot by any means,” Menkal said. “It has been too rough. Wind is not good for saltwater anglers. It’s just dangerous.” Aunspach said the blackmouth action is slowly picking up. A few fish were brought into Swain’s within the last week — an 8-pounder and a 10-pounder — so now three of the four monthly salmon ladder spots are occupied.

Anglers meeting Menkal will be the featured speaker at tonight’s meeting of the North Olympic Peninsula Chapter of the Puget Sound Anglers. Menkal’s presentation will cover the techniques of bank fishing for steelhead and salmon on the North Olympic Peninsula’s rivers. The meeting will take place tonight at 6:45 p.m. at the Trinity United Methodist Church located at 100 S. Blake Ave. in Sequim.

Heartbreaker for PT Knights nip Redskins by 1 point PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — Jewel Johnson knocked down 16 points but the Port Townsend girls basketball team suffered another heartbreaking Olympic League loss Tuesday night. The Redskins, who have lost three league games by a total of eight points, had probably their toughest loss, 47-46, against league power Bremerton. Port Townsend increased a 27-26 halftime lead to 41-36 going into the fourth quarter but the Knights rallied in the final period for the one-point win. Bremerton outscored the Redskins 11-5 with eight points from Alyssa Beach in the fateful fourth quarter. The Knights improved to 5-1 in league and 5-5 overall while the Redskins fell to 4-3 in conference and 5-3 overall. Bremerton is in a tie for second place with Olympic while Port Townsend is alone in fourth place. Kingston and North Kitsap are a half-game behind the Redskins at 3-3 each. Codi Hallinan joined Johnson in double figures with 10. Irina Lyons and Enani Rubio scored seven each. Sawyer Kluge netted a gamehigh 19 for the Knights. The Redskins next play at archrival Chimacum in nonleague action tonight starting at 7 p.m. The game is the nightcap of a doubleheader with the boys varsity teams.

Vargas traded for Angels’ Morales Mariners get switch-hitting slugger for standout southpaw pitcher BY TIM BOOTH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — The Los Angeles Angels got the pitching depth they wanted. The Seattle Mariners got the power-bat they so desperately needed. Two foes in the AL West found a way to work together Wednesday when the Angels traded switchhitting slugger K e n d r y s Vargas Morales to the Seattle Mariners for left-hander Jason Vargas, filling needs for both teams. The 29-year-old Morales became expendable after the Angels agreed to a deal last week with free agent slugger Josh Hamilton. The Angels had been looking for a pitcher after losing Zack Greinke and Dan Haren to free agency and trading Ervin Santana. The Angels added a lefthander to their rotation, while Seattle got a hitter than can instantly take a spot in the middle of its order. “We were going to try and come up with some type of offense and I think this worked out in a positive way,” Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik said. “Both players are at the end of their contracts.” Getting Vargas reunites the lefty with his former Long Beach State teammate Jered Weaver at

the top of the Angels’ rotation. The duo played college ball together in 2004 and now will be counted on in helping make the big money the Angels spent on Hamilton and Albert Pujols last season pay off. Vargas led Seattle in wins last season, going 14-11 with a 3.85 ERA and pitched a career-high 217 1/3 innings.

Four years in Seattle The 29-year-old is 36-42 with a 4.09 ERA in four years with the Mariners. “Jason was what we were looking for on the market this year: just a steady reliable lefthander who can go out there,” Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said. “He’s got a history of pitching a high volume of innings and clearly I think we make ourselves a little bit better just in that we don’t have to face him because he’s given us fits. “So we’re thrilled to make the deal. We feel like this makes us a better, more complete and balanced team.” In his career, Vargas is 5-4 with a 2.65 ERA and 66 strikeouts in 85 innings pitched against the Angels. Morales hit .273 with 22 home runs and 73 RBIs last season after missing the entire 2011 season after breaking his leg early in 2010 while celebrating a game-ending grand slam against the Mariners.


Kendrys Morales (8) of the Los Angeles Angels reacts after breaking his left ankle while jumping onto home plate after hitting a grand slam to win a game against the Seattle Mariners in Anaheim, Calif., on May 29, 2010. The Angels have traded power hitter Morales to TURN TO M’S/B3 the Mariners for left-hander Jason Vargas.

Sherman’s appeal set for Friday in 2009, Butler was one of the final roster cuts in training camp this year. Butler had tryouts with Detroit, New Orleans, San Diego and Houston, but never latched on with any of those teams, which came as a surprise to Carroll. “Yeah, matter of fact I am [surprised] because he is a very good football player,” Carroll said. “He has great speed, he catches the ball, and he’s really reliable and all of that. “He’s a really good route runner, too. He’s a smaller guy, maybe that’s part of the issue, I don’t know, but we were thankful that he was out there.”

Sherman’s appeal set for Friday, report says MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE

RENTON — Richard Sherman reportedly will get a chance to plead his case this week after allegedly testing positive for a banned substance. According to an ESPN report, Sherman’s appeal will take place Friday to contest the NFL’s four-game suspension. The league alleges he violated its policy against performance-enhancing substances. Sherman reportedly tested positive for an amphetamine-type substance. According to the report, Sherman initially had an appeal scheduled for Dec. 14. However, Sherman said last week that the appeal had been postponed. If a decision comes the same day to uphold Sherman’s suspension, he would have to begin serving his four-game suspension on Sunday night against San Francisco. However, in the past, the league has generally waited to rule on these cases early in the week. With Sherman’s availability uncertain, the Seahawks could be without their top four cornerbacks when they play host to the 49ers in a nationally televised game. A win over the 49ers will clinch a playoff berth for the second time in three years for Seattle. Starting cornerback Brandon Browner will serve the third game of his four-game suspension against San Francisco for violating the league’s performance-enhancing substance policy. His replacement, Walter Thurmond, missed Sunday’s game with a ham-

Extra points


Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson (13) is tackled by Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman during the first half of last Sunday’s game. Sherman may miss Sunday night’s game against the 49ers is his four-game suspension is upheld Friday. string injury; Thurmond might not be healthy enough to play Sunday. Veteran cornerback and Tacoma native Marcus Trufant has missed three consecutive games with a hamstring injury. While the Seahawks are dealing with some adversity at cornerback, Seattle coach Pete Carroll likes the overall depth at the position. Rookie Jeremy Lane, a sixth-round selection, made his first career start Sunday against Buffalo, finishing with three tackles and doing a solid job in coverage. Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick tested Lane early, trying to throw the ball deep to receiver T.J. Graham.

But Lane was glued to the Buffalo receiver. “I lost the ball because of the lights,” Lane said about the early play. “But I think it went pretty well. I knew they were going to test the new guy, so I prepared all week. “I couldn’t wait to get the first play out of the way, so I could get my nerves down and focus in.” Lane was in 54 defensive plays. And his backup, Byron Maxwell, played 56 snaps. Lane moved to nickel cornerback and Maxwell played on the outside when Seattle switched to five defensive backs on passing downs. Even recent addition Ron Parker, who went to training camp with Seattle

and was released during final roster cuts, got in some work in Seattle’s blowout win over Buffalo, participating in 16 defensive plays. All three players are at least 6-foot and 190 pounds, so they are big enough to play the press cover scheme that Carroll and defensive coordinator Gus Bradley favor defensively on the perimeter.

Insurance for rice Carroll said Sidney Rice, Seattle’s No. 1 receiver, could be dealing with a nagging foot injury for the rest of the season. Rice did not practice until Friday last week in order to give his sore foot some rest heading into the Buffalo game. But even with the lim-

ited practice repetitions, Rice played well against the Bills, finishing with a teamhigh four catches for 76 yards. Carroll said that Rice’s foot was sore again Monday, and he will be limited in practice for a second consecutive week. “He’s still sore and we’ll have to see how it goes and see if he can practice,” Carroll said about Rice. “We might have to take care of him a little bit during the week to get him ready for game day again. He played well, but he was hobbling a little bit.” The Seahawks re-signed receiver Deon Butler over the weekend as insurance in case Rice couldn’t play. A third-round pick out of Penn State by the Seahawks

Carroll said defensive tackle Alan Branch’s ankle sprain was not as severe as the team first thought, and there’s a chance he could play against San Francisco. “He’s had a history of high ankle sprains, and we thought maybe that’s where this one went, but we’ll see,” Carroll said about Branch. “We’ll rest him probably until Friday and see if he can go on Friday. “We’re thinking that he probably has a chance to make it back.” The Seahawks announced they signed rookie defensive end Monte Taylor to the practice squad. Taylor signed with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Cincinnati after the draft in late April, but was released on June 15. Taylor later signed with Philadelphia and went to training camp with the Eagles, but was let go during roster cuts Aug. 31. To make room for Taylor, Seattle released receiver Lavasier Tuinei, a former Oregon Ducks player, from the practice squad.

M’s: Trade for Morales Notre Dame’s Kelly top coach CONTINUED FROM B1 Morales was at his best later in 2012, hitting .275 with 11 homers, 28 RBIs and an OPS of .827 over the final two months. Among its regular starters, no Seattle hitter had an OPS higher than .738 for the 2012 season. Morales could quickly become the most productive hitter in the Mariners lineup. He would have led Seattle in home runs and been second in RBIs last season and could be even more potent with the Mariners bringing the fences closer in the outfield. In 34 career games at Safeco Field, Morales is a .292 hitter with a .904 OPS,

seven home runs and 23 RBIs. “I thought it was a situation where we could acquire a middle of the lineup bat, and a switch hitter,” Zduriencik said. “And here is a guy who played in this division, here is a guy who knows the American League. I thought that was really good.” Zduriencik said the conversations with Dipoto became serious on Tuesday morning and the deal was wrapped up by midday on Wednesday. The acquisition of Morales will instantly boost Seattle’s offense but also creates a log-jam of with catcher/designated hitter Jesus Montero and first baseman Justin Smoak.

Morales started just 28 games at first base last season, but Zduriencik said they are confident he could play in the field. He’s also hopeful that Montero comes to spring training ready to be the everyday catcher. “As long as we create competition and as long as we have these pieces in spring training we’ll see what happens,” Zduriencik said. “I don’t have the exact answer. We’ve certainly talked about a lot of scenarios and feel very comfortable that there will be enough at-bats to go around for all these guys but at the end if you’ve added a piece that you think makes your club better, that’s just better.”


SOUTH BEND, Ind. — After two seasons as Notre Dame coach, Brian Kelly decided he wasn’t spending enough time doing the best part of his job: coaching players. Kelly changed that in 2012, and he shuffled his staff. Then, with Kelly more in tune to his team and the assistants in sync with the head coach, Notre Dame went from unranked to topranked. For leading the Fighting Irish to the BCS championship for the first time, Kelly was voted Associated Press college football coach of the year. “When you’re talking about the coach of the year, there’s so many things that

go into it,” Kelly said. “I know it’s an individual award and it goes to one guy, but the feelings that I get from it is you’re building the right staff, that you’ve got the right players and to me that is a validation of the program. That you put together the right business plan.” Kelly received 25 votes from the AP college football poll panel. Penn State’s Bill O’Brien was second with 14 votes. Stanford’s David Shaw (four), Texas A&M’s Kevin Sumlin (three), Kansas State’s Bill Snyder (two) and Alabama’s Nick Saban (one) also received votes. Kelly is the first Notre Dame coach to win the AP

award, which started in 1998. Of course, the Irish haven’t played for a national championship since 1988 and spent much of the past two decades trying to find a coach who could restore a program that was becoming a relic of its proud past. It turns out Kelly was the answer. He arrived in 2010 after two decades spent climbing the coaching ladder and winning big everywhere he worked. But in the world of college football, Notre Dame is a long way from Grand Valley State — where Kelly won Division II national titles — and Cincinnati, his previous stop, for that matter.

Medicare overpaying for back braces Report: Government squanders 30 cents of each medical dollar THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Internet sale price for a standard back brace: $99.99. What Medicare pays for the item: $900-plus. A federal report released Wednesday offers a look at how wasteful spending drives up health care costs as investigators found that Medicare paid $919 on

average for back braces that cost suppliers an average of $191 each. “The program and its beneficiaries could have paid millions of dollars less if the Medicare reimbursement amount . . . more closely resembled the cost to suppliers,” according to the report from the inspector general of the Department of Health and Human Services. In a written response, Medi-

care’s administrator, Marilyn Tavenner, said Medicare will consider including back braces in a competitive bidding plan for medical equipment. Tavenner The bidding experiment, expanding across the country, has been shown to save taxpayers money. Budget talks between President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, may lead to competitive bidding, a

shift that some Democrats are urging, and industry is fighting. It’s estimated that the health care system squanders $750 billion a year, about 30 cents of every medical dollar, through unneeded care, wasteful spending and fraud. Part of the problem: Prices can vary widely depending on who’s paying the bill. Medicare spends more than $10 billion a year providing beneficiaries with medical equipment, from power wheelchairs to blood sugar monitors. It’s an area that has been rife with fraud.

Kodak to get $525 million for digital imaging patents Photo giant needs cash to pay debts THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Eastman Kodak will receive about $525 million from the sale of its digital imaging patents, money the struggling photo pioneer says will help it emerge from bankruptcy protection in the first half of next year. The Rochester, N.Y., company filed for bankruptcy protection in January after struggling to adapt to the shift to digital photography. Eastman Kodak Co. said Wednesday the patent sale will help it repay a substantial amount of its initial debtor-in-possession loan, and it satisfies a key condition of new financing that required the sale of the patents for at least $500 million. In November, Kodak said it would receive loans worth $830 million in a new, cheaper financing package, replacing a $793 million deal.

Swiss bank fined $1.5 billion THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

$ Briefly . . . State jobless rate dips near 4-year low OLYMPIA — The state’s unemployment rate dropped to 7.8 percent last month, the first time it’s been below 8 percent in nearly four years. The state’s Employment Security Department said Wednesday that the fall from October’s 8.2 percent rate was the largest one-month decline in more than three decades — since November 1977. The last time the rate was below 8 percent was January 2009, when it was also at 7.8 percent. (County-by-county unemployment rates, including those for Jefferson and Clallam counties, will be released next week.) Nonfarm payrolls experienced an estimated net gain of 1,600 jobs in November, seasonally adjusted. “Job growth appeared to slow in November, but the trend of the last three months is very positive,” said Joe Elling, chief labor economist for Employment Security. Retail trade added an estimated 2,500 jobs; construction was up 1,400; leisure and hospitality, up 1,200; transportation, warehousing and utilities, up 800; education and health services, up 600. The state lost about 205,000 jobs from when employment peaked in February 2008 to the low point in February 2010. With November’s numbers, the state has seen a net gain of about 122,000 jobs since February 2010.

$2 billion to settle allegations of laundering money for Mexican drug cartels and countries under U.S. embargoes, such as Iran. UBS, Switzerland’s largest bank, said some of its employees tried to rig the LIBOR rate (short for London Interbank Offered Rate) in several currencies. The rate is set daily using information banks provide and is used to price trillions of dollars in contracts, including mortgages and credit cards. Some UBS traders submitted inaccurate data to gain some financial advantage. The bank’s Japan unit, where much of the manipulation took place, entered a plea to one count of wire fraud in an agreement with the U.S. Justice Department.

Unscrupulous suppliers sell beneficiaries items they may not need and bill the cost to Medicare. The $96 million that Medicare spent on back braces in 2011 was a small sliver of its total spending, but that amount had more than doubled in just three years, up from $36 million in 2008, the report said. Investigators decided to take a closer look, before the line item for back braces could reach the $200 million-$300 million mark. The inspector general’s office focused on a type of back brace that is fairly standard.

Office tower sold SEATTLE — HAL Real Estate Investments of Seattle has sold the 7th & Madison building for $100 million, three times what it paid in 2010.

GM stock buyback DETROIT — The Treasury plans to sell its remaining stake in General Motors over the next 15 months, letting the automaker shed the stigma of being partly owned by the government. GM said Wednesday it will spend $5.5 billion to buy back 200 million shares from the Treasury by year’s end. The government, in turn, plans to sell its remaining stake of 300 million shares on the open market over the next 12 to 15 months. GM will pay $27.50 for each share, at an 8 percent premium over Tuesday’s closing price of $25.49. The government is almost certain to lose billions on the $49.5 billion bailout that saved GM from being auctioned off in pieces in 2008-2009.

Help sometimes more of a hindrance IN MY WORLD, this is what’s known as a “reality check”: Christmas is five days from today. If that realization strikes terror into your heart, I may be able to help. I may not. We’ll see. In the past, which for me is anytime that wasn’t within the past 20 minutes, I’ve been known to provide last-minute gift ideas for elders to those of us who are less-than-focused. Given my infinite capacity for generosity, mercy and tolerance, I started out to do exactly that today, and certainly, I’m quite capable of generating an avalanche of wonderful ideas. But then I got to thinking about the elders I know (and I know more than a few!) and what they’d want for Christmas, or whatever other gift-giving event might be occurring for you and yours. And what came up was apparent and universal: dignity and respect. Don’t go look those words up in whatever passes in your life for a dictionary. I didn’t. I didn’t because most of us think we know what they mean, and if we think we already know, we’re certainly not going to allow ourselves to be distracted by facts. Now, forget about whatever it is you think those words mean and think about you. Yes, you.

How do you Mark You don’t like it, and I don’t like it when like it, so why, pray tell, would Harvey somebody we treat people that we claim to treats you like like that way? an idiot or a Well, we probably wouldn’t if child or somewe thought about it, so think one who is genabout it. erally incapaI don’t know if it’s Mom or ble of running Dad or Grandma or Grandpa or their own lives?

Maybe not. “But she needs it!” That wasn’t the question. “We want her to be safe!” Me, too. “So, what the heck are you saying?” I’m saying that when we “help” somebody, that usually suggests they need help, or we think they do — that they can’t do it alone. How would you feel if I suddenly came along and decided to “help” you? You didn’t ask me to; I just decided that you needed it, so here’s the “help” that I see you obviously need.


Dignity and respect Aren’t you glad? Aren’t you grateful? Aren’t you just thrilled I was able to know what you needed in order for you to continue your pathetic little existence and be safe? No? Why not? Right. Now, go look up “dignity” and “respect” (I did), and let’s begin again. When we treat people as if they need help, they start acting like they do, whether they do or not. So, am I saying we should all stop helping Mom? Of course not. What I’m saying is that “help” has to be wanted — accepted —

before it qualifies as “help.” When it is, life can be better, easier, safer and maybe even longer! But when it’s not, it just makes us feel . . . less than. So we start acting less than, and pretty soon, we become less than — less than what we were, less than what we could be, less than what we wanted to be, less than what we used to be — less than. The missing piece is, usually, the conversation — the negotiation — that turns “help” into being part of the solution instead of part of the problem. Negotiation. If you take nothing else from today’s diatribe, take that word, “negotiation,” and have it tattooed on your heart. Negotiation. Now, does all of this let you off the hook for getting Mom a Christmas present? No, it never was intended to. It was intended to help you figure out what a “gift” is . . . And what it isn’t.

Fun ’n’ Advice

by Eugenia Last

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t jump to conclusions. Put the past behind you and look to the future with optimism. You’ll learn from a personal experience you encounter with someone of interest. A financial gain will help you invest in your skills and endeavors. 3 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Personal responsibilities must be dealt with before you can relax and enjoy the end-of-theyear festivities. A close relationship with someone will be enhanced. Travel plans or spending time doing something out of the ordinary will bring you pleasure. 5 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Create change if you are bored or unhappy in your current situation. A new year is about to begin and preparing to wipe your slate clean and start anew will bring you greater vitality and a chance to do things differently. 5 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t look at your failures -- enjoy your successes. A serious outlook is fine, but not when you should be enjoying the lighter side of life with people who normally only get to see you at work. Get year-end paperwork out of the way. 3 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Face domestic and family challenges in a practical manner. Judging others will cause resentment. A social event or shopping will cost you more than you anticipate. Don’t count on a contract unless you have it signed, sealed and delivered. 3 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may want to help those less fortunate, but do so for the right reason. Offering time, a service or suggestions will make a difference. An impulsive decision or move will cause emotional stress and can hurt your reputation. 2 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Relationships are key to your future. Ask for favors or offer something that will secure a relationship with someone special. A problem with deception must be brought out into the open before you can move on. Moderation will be required. 4 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Please those around you and you will open up new opportunities presented to you by a friend, relative or someone who is looking for a partnership. Traveling will lead to conversations with extraordinary people. Love is in the stars. 3 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t let change cause emotional upset. Do your best to finish what you start and to take care of any responsibilities you’ve been given. You will reap the rewards and be given the time you need to devote to home and family. 2 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Getting back to your roots may be interesting, but don’t believe everything an old friend tells you. Rely on your intuition to guide you when dealing with family and to lead you in a direction that will secure your position. 3 stars

The Family Circus

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Spend time preparing for the upcoming year. Strategize and figure out your best move. Focusing on what you can do to improve your chance of getting ahead personally or professionally will lead to a plan that will help build your confidence. 4 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Too much of everything will be your downfall. Keep things simple and stick close to home. Don’t be fooled by what others say. Avoid a fasttalking sales pitch, suggestions or offers that are too good to be true. Self-deception is apparent. 3 stars

Due to superstorm Sandy, I was only able to fill my vehicles with regular gas at 87-octane rating. Will one or two tanks of regular gas hurt or damage these engines? Should I use an octane boost additive until I am able to get the higheroctane gas? Joe Dear Joe: There is no long-term damage from limited use of the loweroctane fuel. However, you will notice a loss of power under hard acceleration. The engine-knock sensors will feel the engine ping and retard the ignition timing. I would not spend any money on gas additives or octane boosters.

Now, the high-temperature light goes on, and the coolant boils over and escapes the coolant-overflow tank, causing a lowcoolant condition. Is there anything else that can be checked? Chris Dear Chris: You did not mention if the engine is a six-cylinder (which have head gasket failures). If so, then this is a common problem. If there is no exhaust gas in the cooling system, then you have to look at circulation from the water pump impeller and make sure the radiator is partly plugged and has plenty of flow. On some rare occasions, there could be a blockage or collapse in a coolant hose.
