PORT ANGELES — A new Border Patrol station east of downtown that can house up to 50 agents could be ready for occupancy by Thursday, and the operation that covers all of the North Olympic Peninsula will begin moving in within a few days.

Crafting more than a canoe PT’s BRIDGE spans generations, traditions IN MARCH 2010, Jared Fennell’s high school senior project was launched at Point Hudson: a cedar-frame angyak (Inuit-style canoe) like his great-greatgrandfather used to build. The angyak was PORT TOWNSEND built under the guidNEIGHBOR ance of Mitch Poling, a Port Townsend resident, with the help of Jennifer Jared’s grandmother and aunt, who’d started Jackson a group called BRIDGE to encourage interaction between native elders and youths. With his canoe family, including Poling as honorary uncle, Jared pulled the craft in the 2010 Paddle Journey. This spring, BRIDGE builders are again at Poling’s house to build a second craft to carry them over the water: a baidarka, or cedarframe kayak. The difference: BRIDGE has expanded outside the family circle. “We’ve had 25 elders and youth here,” said Darcie Pacholl, Jared’s aunt. TURN

Passings WILLIAM HANLEY, 80, a Broadway playwright and award-winning screenwriter who scripted a pioneering TV film that dealt with incest, has died. His daughter, Katherine Hover, said he died Friday at his home in Connecticut. Mr. Hanley’s works include “Slow Dance on the Killing Ground” and “Mrs. Dally Has a Lover,” and the teleplays “The Long Way Home” and “The Kennedys of Massachusetts.” He won Emmys for the TV movies “The Attic: The Hiding of Anne Frank” and “Something About Amelia.” “Amelia,” which first aired in 1984 on ABC, explored the largely taboo topic of parental sexual abuse. Ted Danson, then the star of hit sitcom “Cheers,” portrayed a doting, well-todo father exposed as having had sexual relations with his teenage daughter. Glenn Close played the mother in the critically acclaimed, top-rated program, which also won Emmys for outstanding drama special and for young Roxanne Zal, who played the abused daughter. In addition, Mr. Hanley wrote the screenplay for the 1969 film “The Gypsy Moths,” as well as several novels.

Arthel “Doc” Watson’s mastery of flatpicking helped make the case for the guitar as a lead instrument in the 1950s and 1960s, when it was often considered a backup for the mandolin, fiddle or banjo. His fast playing could intimidate other musicians, even his own grandson, who performed with him. Mr. Watson was born March 3, 1923 in what is now Deep Gap, N.C., in the Blue Ridge Mountains. He lost his eyesight by the age of 1 when he developed an eye infection that was worsened by a congenital vascular disorder..

1937 (75 years ago) Port Townsend’s second annual Rhododendron Festival is in full swing. Warm, sunny weather is making up in part for the setback caused by a Puget Sound ferry strike. The strike thwarted the plans of hundreds of Seattle residents who were preparing to visit Port Townsend and Olympic Peninsula rhododendron country over the weekend. Also unable to attend the festival was Gov. Clarence D. Martin, who was due to crown the rhododendron queen. Attorney Stephen F.

Man falls from crane UNIVERSITY PARK, Texas — A man dangled from the cab of a construction crane before falling 150 feet to his death at a college campus in Dallas early Tuesday, ending a more than 14-hour standoff, police said. Police have yet to identify
the man who spent Monday afternoon on the crane at the Southern Methodist University campus at University Park. He warned officers that he was armed and would shoot anyone who approached him. Two SWAT team members who climbed the crane around 1 a.m. Tuesday discovered the man had covered the surrounding area with grease to prevent them from reaching him, the Dallas Police Department said. The man pulled himself out of the cab and hung by his hands before dropping to his death at 1:47 a.m. Tuesday. Police said they are investigating whether the man was involved in an earlier robbery.

The U.N. said 49 children and 34 women were among the 108 people who died. “This is the most effective way we’ve got of sending a message of revulsion of what has happened in Syria,” said Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr in Canberra. Carr called the killings a “hideous and brutal crime.” The expulsions up pressure on Syrian allies like Russia. The U.S. State Department said Tuesday that the charge d’affaires at the Syrian Embassy was given 72 hours to leave the United States. Syria has not had an ambassador in the U.S. since last year. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the U.S. holds “the Syrian government responsible for this slaughter of innocent lives.”
DAMASCUS — International envoy Kofi Annan urged Syrian President Bashar Assad on Tuesday to “act now” to end 15 months of bloodshed, warning that the country had reached a “tipping point.” “We are at a tipping point,” Annan said after his talks with the Syrian leader aimed at rescuing his troubled peace blueprint, which was supposed to begin with a cease-fire from April 12 that has never taken hold. “The Syrian people do not want the future to be one of bloodshed and division. Yet the killings continue, and the abuses are still with us today,” the former U.N. chief said. The Associated Press
Briefly: World NATO forces kill al-Qaida Afghan leader KABUL, Afghanistan — The U.S.-led NATO force in Afghanistan killed al-Qaida’s secondhighest leader in the country in an airstrike in Kunar province, the coalition said Tuesday. Sakhr al-Taifi, also known as Mushtaq and Nasim, was responsible for commanding foreign insurgents in Afghanistan and directing attacks against NATO and Afghan forces, the alliance said. The airstrike that killed alTaifi and another al-Qaida militant took place Sunday in Kunar’s Watahpur district, the coalition said. No civilians were harmed, it said. The U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan was carried out because al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden used the country as his base to plan the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in New York and Washington. Most of al-Qaida’s senior leaders are now believed to be based in Pakistan.

The men, aged 18 and 23, were suspected of “being in the process of preparing an act of terror” in Denmark or abroad after being overheard talking about methods, targets and different types of weapons, the Danish Security and Intelligence Service said. Authorities “cannot say with certainty that a terrorist act was imminent, but we felt that it was necessary to intervene and arrest them at this time to be able to thwart the plans,” said Jakob Scharf, head of the agency, which is known by its Danish acronym PET.

8 more states get waivers from No Child Left Behind THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ATLANTA — Another eight states are gaining flexibility from the Bush-era No Child Left Behind law, U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Tuesday. The Education Department has approved waivers for Connecticut, Delaware, Louisiana, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Ohio and Rhode Island. Eighteen other states, including Washington, and Washington, D.C., applied for a waiver and could get approval in coming weeks.
President Barack Obama’s administration is granting waivers in exchange for promises from states to improve how they prepare and evaluate students. So far, 19 states have gotten waivers.
‘Getting more flexibility’ “These states are getting more flexibility with federal funds and relief from NCLB’s one-size-fitsall mandate in order to develop and implement locally tailored solutions to meet their unique educational challenges,” Duncan
said in a call with reporters. He was in Connecticut to make the announcement. The waivers are a stopgap measure until Congress rewrites the decade-old law, which has been up for renewal since 2007. Federal lawmakers agree the law needs to be changed, but they’ve bickered over how to do that. The states that won waivers earlier this year are: Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Tennessee.

A CALIFORNIA 9/11 license plate program advertised as a way to help victims’ children attend college and aid anti-terrorism programs has been raided by successive governors. An Associated Press review of the $15 million collected since the plates were approved in 2002 shows only $80,000 went to scholarships. While 40 percent of the money went to anti-terror training programs, $3 million was raided by Gov. Jerry Brown and his predecessor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to plug budget deficits.

Makah: Salmon a favorite in Ozette otter diet BY DEBBIE ROSS-PRESTON NORTHWEST INDIAN FISHERIES COMMISSION
NEAH BAY â€” Sockeye salmon are a favorite food of the river otters at Lake Ozette, and the Makah tribe wants to know whether thatâ€™s playing a role in limiting the recovery of the threatened run of fish. â€œItâ€™s interesting that while there have been river otter diet studies in many other states in the river otter range, there havenâ€™t been any in Washington,â€? said Jonathan Scordino, the tribeâ€™s marine mammal biologist. Makah students and fisheries technicians and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Marine Mammal Laboratory collected 291 otter scat samples from Lake Ozette and the Ozette River from 1998 to 2003. Analysis of the samples revealed that the otters have a diverse diet that is dominated by crayfish, with seasonal pulses of juvenile and adult salmon.

OLYMPIA â€” Gay marriage in Washington state is all but certain to be decided by voters in November, but the stateâ€™s gubernatorial candidates will be offsetting each otherâ€™s votes on whether to uphold the new law approving same-sex unions. Republican Attorney General Rob McKenna said he will vote no on Referendum 74 if it qualifies, as expected, for the ballot; his Democratic opponent, former U.S. Rep. Jay Inslee, will vote yes to uphold the law. Inslee, who called President Barack Obamaâ€™s recent announcement of support for gay marriage â€œan act of moral courage,â€? said this issue is one that clearly defines the difference between him and McKenna on the stateâ€™s biggest social issue of the year. â€œMy opponentâ€™s positions are not consistent with the forward-thinking, allembracing, tolerant views of the state of Washington,â€? Inslee said. Opponents of the new
law legalizing gay marriage have been collecting signatures in advance of a June 6 deadline. If they donâ€™t raise the required 120,577 valid voter signatures, the measure passed by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Chris Gregoire earlier this year takes effect June 7. If they do, the law is put on hold until the November election.
favor of keeping that law in place when it was challenged by a referendum at the ballot in 2009. He also said he would not be in support of a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in Washington state. â€œI think this is an issue that is properly left to statute, not for our constitution,â€? he said. â€œI donâ€™t think thatâ€™s an appropriate change to our constitution.â€? Inslee has made much of McKennaâ€™s stands on social issues in hopes he can paint McKenna as out of touch with the state.
Same-sex rights McKenna said that while he supports same-sex partners having the same legal rights as heterosexual married couples, â€œfor me, marriage itself is a question of religious faith, and I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. â€œI recognize that others disagree, so this is why itâ€™s appropriate for the voters to decide what they want the law to be,â€? he said. McKenna supports the stateâ€™s current domestic partnership law, known as the â€œeverything but marriageâ€? law that grants domestic partners all the state-granted rights of marriage. He notes that he voted in
Birth control In addition to his early support of gay marriage, Inslee cites his support for easy access to emergency contraceptives as well as a bill that failed in the Legislature this year that would have required insurance plans funded or administered by the state to cover abortions if they cover

maternity care. McKenna said he supports insurance coverage for reproductive health but that he does not support the proposed mandate, known as the Reproductive Parity Act, because of concerns that it would jeopardize federal funding. But the bill that ultimately died in the Legislature had an amendment attached to it that would have nullified the proposed state law in the event it were found to conflict with federal law. McKenna said his support of a womanâ€™s right to have an abortion has been consistent throughout. â€œItâ€™s a matter for a woman to control her body and make that decision for herself,â€? he said. â€œWe hope that whenever possible, a woman will choose the child, but the point is itâ€™s her choice.â€? McKenna noted that heâ€™s never been endorsed by either the abortion rights group Planned Parenthood or the anti-abortion Human Life of Washington because his position isnâ€™t â€œpureâ€? enough for either group. Planned Parenthood announced in April that it was endorsing Inslee in the governorâ€™s race. On the issue of easy access to emergency contra-
McKenna is focused on representing the state, and â€œitâ€™s not appropriate for us to issue personal opinions.â€? One issue where both candidates agree is on reclassifying marijuana as a drug that can be prescribed by doctors and filled by pharmacists. Washington is among 16 states and the District of Columbia that have laws allowing the medical use of marijuana. Marijuana currently is classified a Schedule 1 drug, meaning itâ€™s not accepted for medical treatment and canâ€™t be prescribed, and doctors can only â€œrecommendâ€? the drug. Gregoire has joined a handful of other governors in asking the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to reclassify the drug. However, when it comes to full legalization, McKenna said he would vote against a measure that will appear on the November ballot to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. Inslee expressed concerns about Initiative 502 but wouldnâ€™t firmly say heâ€™d vote no. â€œIâ€™m not intending to vote on it right now,â€? Inslee said. â€œFrom what I know right now, it is not my intention to vote for it.â€?

ceptives, the state has been fighting a multiyear legal battle on the issue. Washingtonâ€™s rules require that pharmacies stock and dispense drugs for which there is a demand. The state adopted the dispensing regulations in 2007, following reports that some women had been denied access to Plan B, which has a high dose of medicine found in birthcontrol pills and is effective if a woman takes it within 72 hours of unprotected sex. A pharmacy and two pharmacists sued, saying the rules infringed on their religious freedom. As the stateâ€™s chief legal officer, McKennaâ€™s office has represented the state in the case and currently is appealing a federal judgeâ€™s ruling that the state canâ€™t force pharmacies to sell Plan B or other emergency contraceptives. Inslee argued that McKenna is just doing his job and that he refuses to articulate his personal beliefs on emergency contraceptive access. McKennaâ€™s campaign directed all questions on the issue to his non-campaign office. Attorney general spokeswoman Janelle Guthrie said that because the issue is actively before the courts,

Judge denies injunction in health lawsuit THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE â€” A King County judge has denied a motion to force Republican Attorney General Rob McKenna to alter his filings with the U.S. Supreme Court on the multistate lawsuit seeking to overturn the federal health care law. The order was released Tuesday but was signed by King County Superior Court Judge Sharon Armstrong on Friday, in which she denied the preliminary injunction sought by dozens of women and the liberal advocacy group Fuse Washington. McKenna, a GOP candidate for governor, joined other GOP attorneys general in the federal health care lawsuit more than two years ago. He objected to a provision that required people to buy private health insurance or face a fine. He said that mandate was unconstitutional, though he supported other parts of the federal overhaul. The womenâ€™s lawsuit targeted his efforts to overturn the whole law â€” not just the part he disagrees with. Earlier this month, the women filed the lawsuit against McKenna, alleging that his participation in legal action seeking to overturn the health care law threatens access to comprehensive coverage for women. The legal action sought a ruling that McKenna vio-
lated his ethical duties by asking the Supreme Court to invalidate protections for womenâ€™s health care. It claimed his actions go against the wishes of his clients, the residents of Washington state. In her order, Armstrong wrote that the court â€œlacks the authority to secondguess the attorney generalâ€™s legal strategy in health care reform litigation, whatever the wisdom of his legal strategy.â€? She wrote that the plaintiffs had not established that McKennaâ€™s litigation strategy was â€œarbitrary or capricious.â€? While the injunction was denied, the lawsuit that was filed earlier this month is still active, though McKennaâ€™s office is seeking to have it dismissed. A hearing on that motion is set for June 22. McKennaâ€™s campaign manager, Randy Pepple, has said the lawsuit is frivolous and an attempt to change topics in the gubernatorial campaign between McKenna and Democrat Jay Inslee, a former congressman. Lawyers for the plaintiffs are from the publicinterest law firm of Smith & Lowney, which has been involved in other high-profile political lawsuits on behalf of Democrats, including a campaign financerelated lawsuit against another GOP gubernatorial candidate, Dino Rossi, in 2008.

Olympic Peninsula high school graduations to begin Saturday BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Neah Bay High School Class of 2012 will open the North Olympic Peninsula graduation season at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Neah Bay High School gymnasium. It will be the first Peninsula commencement ceremony to honor new graduates this year. The little school at the northwestern tip of the contiguous United States has had many successes in the 2011-2012 school year, and Saturdayâ€™s graduation will be a celebration for the schoolâ€™s 16 graduates. â€œThe cycle of success feeds on itself,â€? Principal Ann Renker said Tuesday. Neah Bayâ€™s football team won the state Class 1B football championships Dec. 3. In March, a science and technology team of high school and middle school students brought home $71,000 in educational technology in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest. On April 23, science teacher Wilson Arnold was featured in People magazine as a model educator. Every one of the schoolâ€™s seniors will graduate Saturday, and every one of them has either a letter of acceptance from a college, trade school or the military,
Renker said. One student was accepted to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, and others will attend the University of Washington and Washington State University, she said. Renker added that one graduate has joined the U.S. Marine Corps. â€œSuccess is contagious; it helps people keep making investments,â€? Renker said. Renker said the cycle began with the football effort, which led to â€œhundreds and hundreds of hoursâ€? spent in practice and after-school tutoring to keep playersâ€™ grades up.
None ineligible Not a single football player became ineligible because of grades during the 2011 season, she said. The school has not yet announced the total amount of scholarships earned by seniors. That will be announced at the graduation ceremony. The Warriorsâ€™ valedictorian is Crysandra Sones, and the salutatorian is Courtney Winck. Forks Alternative School will present diplomas to five graduates at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the Forks High School auxiliary gymnasium.

The village hopes to start a baidarka camp, he said. “It’s a stunning area for kayaking,” Poling said. “The scenery is beautiful. It’s a maritime Switzerland.” Maggie Fennell, Jared’s grandmother, carved the bow for the new baidarka in the Chenega tradition: Each village had its signature design. One of her earliest memories is looking up at the sky through the oval cockpit of a cedar baidarka, she said, that her grandfather built. Each baidarka took eight to 10 sealskins to cover — she remembers watching her grandmother gumming the skins to make them pliable enough to stretch over the cedar frame, which was lashed together with spruce root or porpoise intestine. She also remembers her
grandmother cutting sealskin patches for repairs, mixing sawdust and tree sap to make glue. “It held forever,” Maggie said. “It was like cement.”
He demonstrated how he uses the width of his fingers as a guide to spacing and a chant to remember how the sinew crosses under and over the rib. “You know you’re doing it correctly when you see this pattern,” he said, showing them the result. As well as teaching in Alaska, Poling taught a community class on baidarka-building at the Northwest Maritime Center last spring. When that craft sells, the money will be used to buy materials for a second class, he said. Poling also exhibits his baidarkas at Gallery Nine in Port Townsend — they are artistic as well as practical. “They’re very stable,” he said. “I use them to do photography.”
The shavings from carving the BRIDGE baidarka bow were saved and used by the young members to create pendants, a glass vial filled with cedar shavings on a beaded string. The youths, led by Jorgensen, will present the pendants to elders at the 2012 Paddle Journey, which this year will be to Squaxin Island in south Puget Sound. BRIDGE youths also are preparing questions and will interview elders about their lives, Pacholl said.

Volunteers sought PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM — Randall Tomaras, organizer of the Sequim Balloon Festival planned Sept. 1-3, is putting out a call for volunteers to help the inaugural event become a success. “To put on an event of this magnitude, it needs a lot of volunteers,” Tomaras said. “The Sequim Balloon Festival is looking for community believers, retirees, team players, youth groups, clubs, organizations and associations that are interested in building the economy and having fun,” he said. The volunteer meeting will be at 7 p.m. Monday at the Holiday Inn Express Conference Center, 1441 E. Washington St. in Sequim. Tomaras will meet at the same time and location with real estate agents Thursday — and with business and corporate representatives and artists Tuesday — to explain how he sees the festival benefitting them. Tomaras also is raising funds for the festival working with a major sponsor, BrokersGroup Real Estate Professionals in Sequim, in putting on a contest to win a hot-air balloon ride at the festival. All entrants have to do, Tomaras said, is see all nine festival promotional posters and vote for one of the nine at http://tinyurl.com/6r2qjhl. Only one entry is allowed, and a drawing is set for Sept. 1. If weather does not permit a balloon ride at 6 a.m. Sept. 3, $250 will be awarded. All nine collector posters will be available at the festival for $10 each. The Sequim Costco photo department is selling, for a limited time, three posters for $4.99 each. Costco is at 955 W.

Clallam again restricts development in Carlsborg Panel â€˜frustratedâ€™ over hearings boardâ€™s refusal to lift order of noncompliance BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” For the seventh time in four years â€” and probably the last â€” the three Clallam County commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to extend interim zoning controls for the Carlsborg urban growth area. Interim zoning restricts new development while the county continues to work its dual-track response to a 2008 state hearings board ruling of noncompliance and invalidity for the unincorporated hamlet that supports more than 1,000 jobs west of Sequim. Four years ago, the Western Washington Growth Management Hearings Board found the 12-year-old Carlsborg urban growth area to be in violation of the 1990 Growth Management Act because it lacked a sewer. The county appealed the ruling while it continued to develop plans to build a $17 million Class A sewer and wastewater-treatment facility. County officials have said the sewer will eliminate groundwater pollution from old septic tanks and provide infrastructure for economic and residential growth in the coming decades.

PORT ANGELES â€” Atlantic salmon contained in Port Angeles fish pens owned by American Gold Seafoods have so far tested negative for a deadly fish virus, said Alan Cook, American Gold vice president of aquaculture. Tests earlier this month confirmed the presence of an influenza-like virus called infectious hematopoietic necrosis, or IHN, in the fish contained in 2 acres of nets near the shores of Bainbridge Island. The Port Angeles fish, located in pens south of Ediz Hook near the Coast Guard Air Station/Sector Field Office Port Angeles, are being watched closely by employees for any sign of the disease. The Port Angeles operation has juveniles, while the Bainbridge Island facility
houses adults, according to Icicle Seafoods, the Seattlebased parent company of American Gold. Many of the fish from the Bainbridge Island farm were adults of marketable size. It was the first time the virus was detected in Atlantic salmon in Washington state.
related only distantly to Pacific salmon species and belong to a different genus. American Gold Seafoods operates two hatcheries near Rochester and has 120 fish pens off Port Angeles, Bainbridge Island, Cypress Island and Hope Island in Puget Sound.
Fish destroyed The Bainbridge Island outbreak will result in more than a million pounds of fish being destroyed. The company said it plans to remove all fish from pens where there are dead or dying fish by the end of June. Nets from 2 acresâ€™ worth of pens will be removed and disinfected. The fish farm could be running again in four months.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency this month has quarantined three salmon farms in British Columbia because of the IHN virus, the Canadian Press reported. The virus does not affect humans who consume infected fish.

In a public hearing, Commissioners Jim McEntire and Mike Chapman expressed frustration over bureaucratic delays and the hearings boardâ€™s refusal to lift the order of noncompliance and invalidity despite a 2011 Court of Appeals ruling in the countyâ€™s favor. â€œI am very interested in seeing the bureaucratic process draw to a swift conclusion,â€? said freshman Commissioner McEntire, whose district includes Carlsborg and the eastern third of the county. â€œThis has carried on far too long and inhibited and prevented legitimate activity for far too long.â€? He added: â€œWhether or not that we agree or disagree with the environmental need and the legal requirement for a wastewater-treatment facility in Carlsborg, for the future, it would appear thatâ€™s the best course moving forward.â€? Chapman, a 12th-year commissioner who is seeking election to a fourth term in November, said he is skeptical that the nonelected hearings board will reverse its ruling, which he said has â€œstymied economic growth in Clallam County for four years.â€?
â€œI think at some point, county leaders have to just make a decision and say this is our community, this is our zoning, these are our decisions and if someone doesnâ€™t like that, take us to court,â€? Chapman said. â€œIâ€™m really frustrated beyond belief that it has taken this long. â€œI do not believe the Western Washington Growth Hearings Board has any intention of ever answering the county.â€? Chapman said he has voted to extend interim zoning controls based on the advice of the countyâ€™s legal team. Past extensions have been for six months rather than three months. â€œI think a decision point for the county commission to move on is coming sooner rather than later,â€? Chapman added. â€œI think itâ€™s been patently unfair that weâ€™ve let the Growth Hearings Board dictate to our county how we do businesses. â€œIâ€™m willing if you want to support three more months, but the odds of me voting for an extension in late August are about zero at this point in time.â€? McEntire agreed. â€œI, too, am uninclined to kick this any further down the road,â€? he said. Commissioner Mike Doherty, who participated in the meeting by speakerphone, reserved his comments for a future meeting.

JIM MCENTIRE county commissioner â€œYouâ€™ll hear me say that we need to compress the schedule of next steps that was provided by staff by at least a year,â€? McEntire said. â€œThis seems to be far too long before thereâ€™s an actual working infrastructure in Carlsborg. â€œIt is high time that landowners, business owners and so forth and so on in the Carlsborg UGA have access to the full extent of the law as it relates to the use of their property,â€? McEntire added.
Motion to dismiss On the litigation track, Clallam County has filed a motion to dismiss the ruling of noncompliance and invalidity. The hearings board â€œessentially punted their findings of fact back to the Court of Appeals,â€? Clallam County planning manager Steve Gray said. â€œEssentially, weâ€™re asking them [the hearings board] to make a decision,â€? Gray said. Several Carlsborg residents and business owners expressed support for the removal of the interim zoning. â€œObviously, the business community would like to see this resolved as quickly as possible,â€? Don Butler said. Pam Schneider urged the board to consider the business community as well as residential property owners in creating financial incentives for hooking into the sewer. She also endorsed a joint study of the Clallam County Economic Development Council and Carlsborg Business Owners Association that found the area supports 1,050 jobs and generated nearly $2 billion in goods and services from 2006 to 2010.
The sewer would be operated by the Clallam County Public Utility District after it is built. The county received a $10 million loan from the state to build it. The loan would be paid off through the countyâ€™s Opportunity Fund over 30 years at 0.5 percent interest. In a staff report, county senior planner Carol Creasey said the county has revised its draft facilities plan to move percolation ponds from a county parcel along Matriotti Creek to the PUDâ€™s property at 110 Idea Place, where the soil is more permeable. Creasey said the move will save the county at least $360,000. ________ Key dates in a revised Reporter Rob Ollikainen can be timeline for the project are: â– Late August: State reached at 360-452-2345, ext.

PA professors make plans for summer study PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Three Peninsula College professors have received National Endowment for the Humanities grants for summer study. History professor Michael Cassella-Blackburn’s award is for participation in a two-week workshop in Concord, Mass., on “Feminists, Utopians and Social Reform in the Age of Emerson and Thoreau,” the college said. He will be one of 50 community college faculty members from across the nation who will study Concord’s central role in American 19th-century thought and social reform, focusing on historic sites and primary sources as they explore what Concord was like as an intellectual center of 19thcentury America.

PA, Sequim High School teams place in finals PORT ANGELES AND SEQUIM High School Equestrian Team coaches reported that the weather was “awesome” and “sunny” during state finals in May. Port Angeles team mom LaDona Wilson reported that both teams performed well and had a “great weekend in Lynden at the finals.” The PA drill team — Suzanne Heistand, Lauren Gallacci, Kynzie Hendricks, Emily VanAusdle, Ashley Farmer and Rachel and Allison Breitbach — won fourth place, and Wilson said it “was a nail-biter since there were 12 teams, and most of them were huge, and all of the kids had these very fancy flags. “Our kids were so awesome though and had such good uniformity.” In-hand obstacle relay team A — Suzanne, Olivia Pluard, Stephanie Lindquist and Marissa Wilson — placed seventh out of 18 teams. Suzanne and Olivia took sixth place of 24 in working pairs, while Suzanne took sixth of 20 in reining, 10th of 21 in stock seat, fifth of 26 in hunt seat, fifth of 21 in working rancher and 12th of 20 in trail.

Renegade Previously, I wrote I had bought new hoof boots, or sneakers, for Indy to wear when he’s not wearing traditional metal shoes. For his end hoofs, I bought a pair of Renegade Hoof Boots. Well, last week, I was about an hour into a ride in the Cassidy Creek Department of Natural
Port Angeles and Sequim High School equestrian teams at the Washington High School Equestrian Teams’ state finals in May. Resources area. When we came out of a nice wooded trail onto a rocky DNR logging road, Indy started limping and acting tender-footed. I looked down, and only the ankle strap to his left rear boot was attached. Missing was the boot itself. Oh bother. I backtracked to find it and spotted it with its cables sprung on a small incline. Apparently, the two adjusting cables sprang free from the tiny set screws holding them in place. I lacked the tools needed to rethread the cables into the set screws. I needed to take a DNR road for the last half-hour of the ride home. It was too rocky for Indy, so I dismounted and walked. Once home, it took me a
good 45 minutes to put the shoe back together. Now that I know how to do it, the next time will be quicker. Still, I thought, “Even when carrying tools with me on the trail, what if I had to do this during cold weather with frozen fingers?” Conclusion: I don’t want a hoof boot I need to use a tool to put the boots on, to repair or adjust while out on the trail. From now on, I’m sticking with Old Macs, which now come with nice gaiters to prevent chafing.

Tourists find it rough on Peninsula THERE DOESN’T SEEM to be many tourists this spring, and that’s made things kind of lonely. Complaining about tourists Pat is a popular topic of conver- Neal sation on the North Olympic Peninsula. Give up on that, and we have very little to talk about. Some blame bad weather, the high price of gas and the socialist Discover Pass for keeping away the tourists. I like tourists. Watching them can provide hours of amusement to an otherwise miserable recreational experience. Misery loves company, and there’s nothing like looking at someone more miserable than
you are to make you feel better about your vacation. Camping in the rain forest is not for everyone. The key to comfort in this soggy environment is to layer your clothes until you can no longer move. Tourists who neglect this practice often appear hypothermic, lost and confused. That is because they are. There’s nothing like watching a tourist launch his boat and set a course out into the salt-chuck, aka Graveyard of the Pacific, with the propeller end of the motor just frothing the surface like a hillbilly rooster tail, providing the other anglers with an early morning shower of cool salt water. Until the motor seizes up. And the rising waters remind the captain about that boat plug thing. Another crude form of amusement is to watch the tourists launch a canoe in a river.
This could be called cruelty to tourists, except they are doing it of their own free will, no matter how much you try to talk them out of it. With any luck at all, the tourists will flip the canoe immediately upon launching and give up. There is nothing like a dunking in glacier water to cure you of canoeing, sparing the rest of us the hassle of a rescue effort. I once witnessed a brutal canoe crash on the upper Elwha River at Fisherman’s Bend. The two aluminum canoes were overloaded with the people sitting on the seats instead of kneeling on the floor, which gave them a center of gravity that was way too high for the high waves they were about to eat. The river took a hard left. The canoes went straight. I asked the crash survivors where they learned to paddle a canoe like that.
Peninsula Voices Right to marry Washington state’s Marriage Equality Act is simply a reinforcement of the constitutional right of two adults to marry. To suggest that a referendum could enable challenging that right defies our Constitution. Should Referendum 74 pass, citizens would be asked to vote on whether or not to deny a section of our population their civil rights. One of the principles our country is founded on is separation of church and state. Regardless of the opinions of a particular church or other group, marriage is a civil right and a gay couple who wish to marry have that right and all the privileges that go with it, according to our Constitution. When two people, regardless of sexual orientation, want to declare their love and commitment through marriage, our denomination celebrates that marriage as a religious rite of passage, as well as a civil union. Not all churches feel the way we do, and it is the right of each church to determine a married gay couple’s religious standing within that church, but denying basic civil rights is another matter. If these rights are denied to gay people, whose civil rights will be attacked next time? We are a welcoming congregation and we stand on the side of love. Vivian Mulligan, Port Angeles
They said they had practiced at the arboretum at Lake Washington. These skills did not transfer to the Peninsula, where the rivers eat a steady diet of boats, rafts and canoes. Many of these boat crashes could have been prevented if the people had remembered the one key rule to floating any river: When in doubt, you must scout the route. Sometimes, just walking along the shore and studying the river will convince you to find another hobby besides floating the river. My friend Jack, the salvage diver from Bear Creek, was hired to get an aluminum drift boat out from under a log jam in the Hoh River. Jack dove down and got the boat, but the owner said it was not his. So Jack dove back under the log jam and found another aluminum drift boat that turned out to

Facts are, most couples work and the kids need to get to school, daycare, sports events, lessons or shopping for food on the way home, doctor’s appointments or simply pick up the drycleaning.

Energy policy The United States today is the functional equivalent to an entire nation racing on a jet plane toward starvation, totally oblivious to the flight they’re on. Furthermore, the United States, with its fossil fuelbased economy, is as sound as a house of cards built on a foundation of sand located in the middle of a floodplain. Obviously, the vast majority of individuals in the United States fail to comprehend the serious consequences we all soon shall be reaping as a result of ignoring something that is so critically vital to our survival: Specifically, the rapidly declining reserves of our energy resources — resources sufficient enough to produce and transport the quantity of food needed to sustain the population we currently have in the United States. For instance, the United States currently has approximately 21 billion barrels of proven oil reserves, and we consume approximately 7 billion barrels of oil annually at our current rate of
consumption. It would take the United States three years to completely finish off the domestic oil that’s left in our proven reserves if we relied solely on domestic oil without imports. What shall we do with the limited amount of domestic oil that we have left in the United States today? Shall we follow the Republican Party’s lead of greed at any cost regardless the consequences and put into practice its value system to “drill baby, drill,” utilizing a strategy of maximum yield in conjunction with a glutinous rate of consumption? Then, afterward, we could throw a Donner Party. Everyone’s invited. Rick Sindars, Port Angeles
Parade pirates I went to the annual Sequim Irrigation Festival parade, and it was fabulous. But I saw the parade’s pirate float, and I was not happy with that at all. First of all, the idea to give out gold coins — fake, of course — and to hand them out to kids is perfectly fine. But to hand the coins out to kids while the pirates are trying to grab them with their swords is not fine. And take that from a real kid who knows! If the sword got too close to the little kid’s fingers, it could scrape them. And the cannon was not safe either, because little babies go to that parade, and every time they have to listen to that horrifying noise. It is also hard on the elderly people, especially those who have hearing aids. It could even give them a heart attack. The cannon was also not very nice for them to see because it could bring back any bad memories from anybody in their family in the war. And it also scares away any wildlife in the area. They should cut the pirates out of the parade, or at least cut the coins and the cannons out. Abigail Fierro-Burdick, Sequim

Top GOP budget writer is resigning THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA — The top Republican budget writer in the state Senate is resigning his seat this week. Earlier this month, Sen. Joe Zarelli of Ridgefield announced he wouldn’t run for re-election, but it was assumed he would finish out his term. However, on
Tuesday, Zarelli announced that Thursday would be his last day. He said it was time for him to “start focusing on where I’m going next and to begin that journey.” Zarelli led a budget revolt in the state Senate this year that helped drive an overhaul in some state policies, such as curtailing early retirement benefits
and requiring new rules for balanced budgets. He has held the budget-leading role for the Senate Republicans since 2004. County Republicans in the 18th Legislative District will recommend names to county commissioners, who ultimately will appoint a replacement to the Senate to fill out the rest of Zarelli’s term.

SunLand makes course more fun SUNLAND MEMBER HENRY Meyer checked in with some information on the addition of a new set of more “player-friendly” tee boxes. “The United States Golf Association has Michael been emphasizCarman ing playing courses that are a good fit for your game,” said SunLand Golf & Country Club General Manager Tyler Sweet. “For most people that means moving up at least one set of tees. “Our women’s tees were the equivalent of 5,800 yards, which is too long for most women, so we created a new set of tees to make the course more fun for shorter hitters.” Two main benefits arise from this bold move forward: Golfers have a much better chance at lowering handicaps on a shorter course, and it should take less time to play each round. It’s already paying off for SunLand players. “We have had great feedback in the first month,” Sweet said. “We had a lady member break 90 for the first time, and another had one of her best rounds at SunLand. I truly believe that golfers will enjoy these forward tees as an alternative course set up. “The men already have several options but the women and juniors don’t,” said SunLand Golf Chairman Jay Tomlin. “Sweet suggested a shorter set of tees, and the Golf Committee decided to act on his suggestion. “Our red tees were the shortest. and measure 5,479 yards. Sweet and I wanted a course of around 4,800 yards. “We toured the golf course and identified areas to place a new set of forward tees.” There also is a red/silver combination that plays to 5,180 yards to offer golfers another option, Tomlin explained. Right now the changes are still in the experimental stage. “We are experimenting with these shorter tees over the next six months before we make permanent changes,” Sweet said. “The Washington State Golf Association has agreed to provide a temporary course rating and slope, so scores can be posted for handicapping.”
Discovery Bay info Discovery Bay Golf Club will launch an Evening Twilight series on Thursday. The weekly nine-hole event will alternate between the front and back nines but will tee off at 5 p.m. each Thursday.

Hooking piece of history First 2-time winner for PA derby BY BRAD LABRIE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Jeff Reynolds of Port Angeles caught this 112-pound monster to win the 2012 Halibut Derby and become the event’s only double winner.
PORT ANGELES — Jeff Reynolds knows a thing or two about fishing. The lifelong Port Angeles resident proved that point when he became the first two-time winner in the history of Port Angeles Salmon Club fish derbies. We’re talking about a lot of derbies, folks. There have been 69 total derbies, 58 salmon derbies and 11 halibut derbies. That’s 67 single winners and one double winner. Reynolds, 63, wrote himself into the history books by catching a 112-pound monster halibut Saturday that held up to win the 2012 Halibut Derby held during the Memorial Day weekend. The 1967 Port Angeles High School graduate had won the 2004 Halibut Derby with a 156pound flatfish. “I was talking to Jeff about that [on Saturday], that if he held on and won, he would be the first two-time winner,” Bob Aunspach of Swain’s General Store in Port Angles said. Swain’s is the headquarters of the derbies. Catching the prize-winning fish is an interesting tale with a major role played by the removal of the Elwha Dam. More on this later in the story. Reynolds was born into a fishing family and has been on the water his whole life. He knows the best North Olympic Peninsula fishing holes like the back of his hand. “I have never been out of the area,” Reynolds said. In the old days, the Reynolds family fished a lot to put food on the table. TURN
Serena stumbles in first round Early exit at a Grand Slam 1st for Williams THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PARIS — For more than a decade, whatever the state of her health or her game, no matter the opponent or arena, Serena Williams always won firstround matches at Grand Slam tournaments. Always. Until Tuesday at the French Open. Until Williams came within two points of victory nine times, yet remarkably failed to close the deal against unheralded and 111th-ranked Virginie Razzano of France. Until a theatrical, 23-minute final game filled with 30 points, more than enough for an entire set, featuring ebbs and flows, high-pressure shotmaking and nerves — and even thunderous protests from the crowd when the chair umpire docked Razzano a point. That look-away-and-youmiss-something game included five wasted break points for Williams, and seven match points that she saved, until Razzano finally converted her eighth, 3 hours and 3 minutes after they began playing.
Perfect record All told, until Tuesday, Williams was 46 for 46 in openers at tennis’ top venues, and those encounters tended to be routine and drama-free, befitting a woman so good that the goal — and 13 times, the end result — was a major championship. Not this time. Now Williams’ first-round Grand Slam record is 46-1 after as stunning a denouement as could be in a

Serena Williams kneels on the clay in her first-round match against Virginie Razzano of France at the French Open tennis tournament in Roland Garros stadium in Paris on Tuesday. Razzano won in three sets. 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3 loss to Razzano on the red clay at Roland Garros. The fifth-seeded Williams, considered by many a pre-tournament favorite, led 5-1 in the second-set tiebreaker, before dropping the next 13 points in a row. Suddenly, her shots didn’t always carry their usual oomph; her court coverage was ordinary. “I’ve been through so much in my life, and I’m not happy, by no means,” said Williams, her eyes welling with tears. “I just always think things can be worse.”
Misses almost year The 30-year-old American returned to action last year after missing about 10 months because of a series of health
scares, including two foot operations and blood clots, a scary stretch she says altered her worldview. The rowdy spectators in Court Philippe Chatrier would have been pulling for Razzano anyway, of course, because of her citizenship.
Heartbreaks But their support was particularly strong because of her recent heartbreak, well-known in France: Razzano’s fiance — Stephane Vidal, also her longtime coach — died at age 32 of a brain tumor in May 2011, a little more than a week before her first-round match at last year’s French Open. He had encouraged her to go ahead and enter the tourna-
ment, so she did, honoring his memory by stepping on court to play, a black ribbon pinned to her shirt. When she walked out of the locker room for what turned out to be a straight-set loss, she wore a gold chain that Vidal had given her as a Valentine’s Day gift a few years earlier. “Honestly, the past is the past,” Razzano said Tuesday, when she dealt with leg cramps starting in the second set. “I think now I did my mourning. I feel good today. It took time.” Said Williams: “I know of her story and her husband. We all have stories. I mean, I almost died, and Venus is struggling herself. TURN

Swain’s. Reynolds and his son, Anglers have been send-
ing in photos to the Peninsula Daily News for the past three weeks with halibut caught in the 130-, 160and even 190-pound range. The super big ones seemed to disappear last weekend. Second place went to Tom Blihler of Edmonds, who caught one 97 pounds — close to 100 pounds but no cigar — while Mike Constant of Port Angeles came in third at 93 pounds. There was only one other fish weighing more than 90 pounds. (See a complete list of 2012 derby placewinners in Scoreboard on Page B2). Reynolds caught his winner in a spot near where a few other big ones have
been caught this season, close to Freshwater Bay, just west of Port Angeles. He hooked his beauty off Elwha River, just east of Freshwater Bay. It was quite the adventure bringing up the fish because of the location. The water was dirty from the Elwha Dam removal, making it hard to see into the water. “You couldn’t see into 3 inches of the water,” Reynolds said. That’s important because Reynolds wanted at least 6 inches of visibility. That’s because he harpoons halibut to bring them on board, and he likes to do that 6 inches beneath the water line.
Otherwise, the fish could break off the line before it’s on the boat. “We have a 16-foot boat,” Reynolds said. “A 16-foot boat and a 100-pound fish don’t match well.” It wasn’t easy but the fish was harpooned and brought aboard. The long-time angler said he expects the mouth of the Elwha River to be muddy for several years. Reynolds caught the winner in 65 feet of water. He was a little cautious about giving away that information. “That’s not very dep to catch halibut,” he said. “But I have been catching them at that depth this year.” The fish made two long
runs on Reynolds. “He went about 100 yards both times,” he said. Reynolds used dual-bait of herring with a salmonbelly teaser. “Halibut love it,” he said. Reynolds saves the bellies of salmon he catches in winter, and uses them all summer. Now, just one more derby win and Reynolds will be the Joe Montana of Peninsula anglers. Montana, of course, is the San Francisco quarterback who is the only NFL player to win three Super Bowl MVPs. Not bad for a lifetime of fun on the water. Oh, and a little work, especially when you pilot a 16-foot boat.

â€˜Flameâ€™ cybervirus infects computers in Middle East Russian security firm suspects Israel of attacking systems of archrival Iran THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LONDON â€” A massive dataslurping cyberweapon is circulating in the Middle East, a Russian Internet security firm reported Monday, saying that computers in Iran appear to have been particularly affected. The virus, dubbed â€œFlame,â€? is unprecedented both in terms of its size and complexity, Moscow-based Kaspersky Lab ZAO reported, saying it possesses the ability to turn infected computers into listening devices and even suck information out from nearby cellphones. â€œThe complexity and functionality of the newly discovered malicious program exceed those of all other cyber menaces known to date,â€? the company said in a blog post announcing the discovery. Flame is the third major cyberweapon discovered in the past two years, and Kasperskyâ€™s conclusion that it was crafted at the behest of a national government fueled specula-
tion that the virus could be part of an Israeli-backed campaign of electronic sabotage aimed at archrival Iran. Data suggest those behind Flame also helped craft Stuxnet, a virus that disrupted controls of nuclear centrifuges in Iran in 2010, according to Ilan Froimovici, the technical director at Power Communications, which represents Kaspersky in Israel.
Two diabolical codes The two codes â€œuse the same vulnerabilities in the operating system and the computer infrastructure in order to infect the computer system. We do believe that the same programmers built the two codes,â€? he said. Stuxnet revolutionized the cybersecurity field because it targeted physical infrastructure rather than data, showing how savvy hackers can take control of industrial systems to wreak real-world havoc. Unlike Stuxnet, Flame appears focused on espionage, Kaspersky said.
Facebook falls below $29 a share
The virus can activate a computerâ€™s audio systems to eavesdrop on Skype calls or office chatter, for example. It also can take screenshots, log keystrokes and â€” in one of its more novel functions â€” suck data from Bluetooth-enabled cellphones. Iran has not disclosed data lost to the new virus, but Israelâ€™s vice premier did little to deflect suspicion about possible Israeli involvement. â€œWhoever sees the Iranian threat as a significant threat is likely to take various steps, including these, to hobble it,â€? Israeli Vice Premier Moshe Yaalon told Army Radio. â€œIsrael is blessed with high technology, and we boast tools that open all sorts of opportunities for us.â€? Alan Woodward, a professor of computing at the University of Surrey in southern England, said that Flame was a different order of threat than run-of-the-mill cyberfraud programs. â€œMost malware writers like to have tiny bits of code that kind of hide away in the dross thatâ€™s on a computer,â€? Woodward said. â€œFlame is 20 megabytes large. Thatâ€™s nearly 60 times the average size of malware samples collected by Internet security company Sophos in 2010.â€?

Job-seekers fill out employment forms at a job fair in Bell, Calif., in March. The expiration of benefits is one factor contributing to what many economists refer to as a â€œfiscal cliff,â€? or a drag on the economy at the end of this year when tax cuts and recession-related spending measures will all come to an end unless Congress acts. The Congressional Budget Office warned last week that the combination could contribute to another recession next year. Candace Falkner, 50, got her last unemployment check in mid-May, when extended benefits were cur-
