PORT ANGELES — The solemn tolling of the bell at Veterans Memorial Park and the sharp cracks of a 21-gun salute echoed off the buildings along Lincoln Street as law enforcement officers and their families gathered Wednesday for the annual Peace Officer Memorial Day ceremony. Between 30 and 40 civilians and law enforcement officers, both retired and active, from agencies across Clallam County turned out to the park near the county courthouse for the ceremony, which honors both officers who have fallen in the line of duty and those who serve today.
“I think it’s just great to have an official ceremony honoring those who put their lives on the line every day,” said County Commissioner Mike Chapman, who read a proclamation approved the day before by commissioners recognizing May 15 as Peace Officer Memorial Day. Members of the American Legion Riders and Patriot Guard Riders, standing at attention with American flags, lined the concrete path leading past the reflection pool at Veterans Memorial Park as ceremony attendees stood silently in the grass behind them.

Paramedics were able to resuscitate the other four individuals who had overdosed, Smith said. Smith said a recent uptick in reported heroin overdoses over the past month or so is not unique to Port Angeles. “This phenomenon we’re seeing is countywide, and regionwide, not just Port Angeles,” Smith said.

Space not final frontier for screening THE CREW OF the International Space Station is boldly going where no one has gone before: to see the new “Star Trek” film. The three astronauts were offered a sneak peak of “Star Trek Into Darkness” days before it opens today on Earth, seeing it not in 3-D, but Zero-G. NASA spokesman Kelly Humphries said the movie was beamed up to the outpost Monday, and the two Russians and American on board had a day off Tuesday. That gave them a chance to view it on their laptops. It’s unclear whether they watched it.

The House of Representatives in Washington, D.C., passed North Olympic Peninsula Congressman Mon C. Wallgren’s bill today to create Olympic National Park. The bill by Wallgren, D-Everett, expands Mount Olympus National Monument into the national forest in the Olympic Mountains and also includes a 35,000-acre strip along the Pacific coast. The bill now goes to the Senate. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who visited the proposed parklands last year, has said he will sign the legislation.

known as Thunder and Lightning. They provided another dimension to an offense that had relied on the passing of Archie Manning. Mr. Muncie’s breakout season came in 1979, when he ran for a Saints-record 1,198 yards. But there were signs of trouble. The Saints traded Muncie to the San Diego Chargers for a draft pick early during the 1980 season. He ran for 1,144 yards and 19 touchdowns in 1981, and was selected to the Pro Bowl three times. But after the first game of the 1984 season, Mr. Muncie was suspended by the NFL for the rest of the season after testing positive for cocaine. He never played pro football again. In February 1989, Mr. Muncie was sentenced in San Diego to 18 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to intending to sell 2 ounces of cocaine to a friend. His time in prison proved a turning point. After that, he pursued business interests and began telling of his drug problems in meetings with youths who were at risk.
Passings CHUCK MUNCIE, 60, who blended speed and power to become one of the NFL’s leading running backs of the late 1970s and early ’80s but whose career was cut short by drug abuse, died Monday at his home in Perris, Calif.

Mr. Muncie went to Mr. Muncie prison in in 1980 1989 in a drug case, but he turned his life around and helped disadvantaged children through a foundation he created. Starring at the University of California, Mr. Muncie was a runner-up to Archie Griffin of Ohio State for the 1975 Heisman Trophy, awarded to college football’s leading player. The New Orleans Saints selected him as the third pick in the 1976 NFL draft. At 6 feet 3 inches and 227 pounds, Mr. Muncie broke through defensive lines, chugging ahead in his distinctive square goggles, and he teamed with Tony Galbreath in the Saints’ running attack

Lawyer: Kidnap suspect will plead not guilty
Acting chief of IRS forced out by Obama THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Hurrying to check a growing controversy, President Barack Obama ousted the acting commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service late Wednesday amid an outcry over revelations that the agency had improperly targeted tea party groups for scrutiny when they filed for tax-exempt status. Obama said Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew had asked for and accepted Steven T. Miller’s resignation. Obama made no public criticism of Miller but spoke of inexcusable “misconduct” by IRS employees and said new leadership at the agency was critical. “Americans are right to be angry about it, and I am angry about it,” Obama said in a televised statement from the White House. “I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency but especially in the IRS, given the power that it has and the reach that it has into all of our lives.” Miller’s ouster came five days
after an IRS supervisor publicly revealed that agents had improperly targeted groups with “tea party” or “patriots” in their applications for tax exempt status. It came a day after an inspector general’s report blamed ineffective management in Washington for allowing it to happen for more than 18 months.
Inappropriate questions The report said tea party groups were asked inappropriate questions about their donors, their political affiliations and their positions on political issues, resulting in delays averaging nearing two years for applications to be processed. Miller’s departure hardly ends the matter. Three congressional committees are investigating, and the FBI is looking into potential civil rights violations at the IRS, Attorney General Eric Holder said earlier Wednesday. Other potential crimes include making false statements to authorities and violating the
Hatch Act, which prohibits federal employees from engaging in some partisan political activities, Holder said. Miller, a 25-year IRS veteran, took over the agency in November when the five-year term of Commissioner Douglas Shulman ended. Shulman was appointed by President George W. Bush. Obama has yet to nominate a permanent successor. A new acting commissioner was not announced Wednesday evening. In an email to employees, Miller said: “This has been an incredibly difficult time for the IRS given the events of the past few days, and there is a strong and immediate need to restore public trust in the nation’s tax agency. “I believe the service will benefit from having a new acting commissioner in place during this challenging period.” In Lew’s letter asking for Miller’s resignation, Lew wrote that the inspector general’s report “has created an urgent need to restore public trust and confidence in the IRS by installing new leadership for the service.”

Scientists recover stem cells from cloned human embryos THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Scientists have finally recovered stem cells from cloned human embryos, a longheld goal that could lead to new treatments for such illnesses as Parkinson’s disease and diabetes. A prominent expert called the work a landmark but noted that a simpler technique now under development may be more useful. Stem cells can turn into any cell of the body, so scientists are interested in using them to create tissue for treating disease. Transplanting brain tissue might treat Parkinson’s disease, for example, and pancreatic tissue might be used for diabetes.
But transplants run the risk of rejection, so more than a decade ago, researchers proposed a way around that: create tissue from stem cells that bear the patient’s own DNA, obtained with a process called therapeutic cloning.
Virtual genetic match If DNA from a patient is put into a human egg, which is then grown into an early embryo, the stem cells from that embryo would provide a virtual genetic match. In theory, tissues from them would not be rejected. That idea was met with some ethical objections because har-
vesting the stem cells involved destroying human embryos. Scientists have tried to get stem cells from cloned human embryos for about a decade, but they’ve failed. Generally, it’s because the embryos stopped developing before producing the cells. In Wednesday’s edition of the journal Cell, however, scientists in Oregon reported harvesting stem cells from six embryos created from donated eggs. Shoukhrat Mitalipov of the Oregon Health & Science University, who led the research, said the success came not from a single technical innovation but from revising a series of steps.

World: Baghdad bombings at bus stop kill at least 32
AFTER TWO YEARS of freedom, a Montana man is back in custody after a state Supreme Court ruling that could send him back to prison for the 1979 slaying of a teenager. Barry Beach was arrested without incident Wednesday morning by the Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office. Beach, 51, was convicted of killing Kim Nees, 17. He spent almost three decades in prison before a Lewistown judge determined in 2011 that new evidence raised doubts about his guilt. But the state Supreme Court’s 4-3 ruling upheld the original 1984 conviction. Justices said Beach provided details only the killer would know.
A PHILADELPHIA DOCTOR Wednesday got a third life term for killing an aborted baby that he described as so big it could “walk to the bus.” Dr. Kermit Gosnell was convicted this week of first-degree murder in the deaths of three babies born alive at his rogue clinic, then stabbed with scissors. He was given two life sentences Tuesday in a deal with prosecutors that spared him a potential death sentence. The sentences offer no chance at parole, meaning Gosnell, 72, will spend the rest of his life in prison. Nine former clinic workers also were convicted in the case, and four others pleaded guilty to murder.
A MAN CHARGED with murder decades after one of the nation’s most infamous child disappearances can go to trial, a judge ruled Wednesday. Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice Maxwell Wiley issued the ruling that Pedro Hernandez of Maple Shade, N.J., can be tried in the case surrounding 6-year-old Etan Patz, last seen walking to his school bus stop in 1979. Authorities said they have finally found the culprit in Hernandez, who confessed after his arrest last year and had made incriminating remarks years before, though his lawyer had said that Hernandez is schizophrenic and bipolar, and that his admission was false.
OFFICIALS SAID A wave of evening bombings tore through mainly Shiite areas in Baghdad, raising the nationwide daily death toll to at least 32. The attacks come amid growing tensions between the Shiite-led government and minority Sunnis. Police and hospital officials said the deadliest attack was near a bus stop in the sprawling neighborhood of Sadr City, where at least seven people were killed and 20 wounded. Officials said that in all, 11 bombings struck Baghdad, as well as in Kirkuk and Tarmiyah. Nobody claimed responsibility for the attacks, but they bore the hallmark of al-Qaida.

PT uptown party draws hundreds BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — A party in the uptown section of Port Townsend earlier this week drew several hundred people for free food, drinks and prizes. “We were all surprised. There were hundreds of people,” said Jeannie Moore, owner of Potpourri Northwest Interiors. “It was a great celebration.” “A lot of people showed up,” said Hanna LoseFrahn, a yoga instructor at Uptown Nutrition. “We were so happy that they showed up to support us,” she said.

Highlights included oysters and beer at Printery Communications, fish tacos at Sweet Laurette Cafe and Bistro, chocolate fondue at the Uptown Pub — with help from the Blue Moose Cafe — and foot and hand massages, mini-makeovers and five-minute facials at Uptown Nutrition. It also provided the occasion for Aldrich’s Market, the area’s anchor business at 940 Lawrence St., to show off its renovated mezzanine, which includes a new sushi bar and retail
space devoted to Northwest products. After the store reopened in March 2012 following a month’s closure for repairs, traffic has not risen to previous levels, owner Milt Fukuda said. “Every since we reopened, business has been way off,” Fukuda said. “People have changed their buying habits and gone elsewhere. “We want to bring some of those people back.” Half of the market’s mezzanine space is occupied by a large dining room, while the rest had been vacant since First Federal moved out and an espresso stand closed in 2010.

Assault charge County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney John Troberg said Wednesday that the assault charge relates to Swegle’s running down Davis, cornering him on Davis’ Baker Street property and causing Davis to, according to the arrest report, “quickly jump to the side to avoid being struck by the blade of the bulldozer.” The first 9-1-1 call about the rampage was received by Peninsula Communications at about 12:18 p.m. Friday, and Swegle was taken into custody by Deputy Nick Turner without incident at 12:28 p.m., according to the arrest report. “[Davis has] been hassling me for years, nothing against you,” Swegle told Turner during the arrest, according to the report. Terrorized residents had frantically called 9-1-1 with reports of Swegle wrecking their neighborhood, according to a 9-1-1 recording of the incident obtained by the
Suspect was in jail system as youth PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Barry A. Swegle entered the state prison system at age 16 after he was sentenced to up to 10 years for breaking and entering Port Angeles High School on Jan. 31, 1978. A Jan. 4, 1979, article in The Daily News, a predecessor to the Peninsula Daily News, shows Swegle barefoot and in a cell as he awaits transport to the Washington Corrections Center in Shelton. Swegle was prosecuted by then-Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney Craig Ritchie, who is now the Sequim city attorney. “Almost every one of these cases where someone goes to state penitentiary at that age is a tragedy,” Ritchie said in the article. Ritchie said Wednesday he did not remember much about the case. “He was a sad case — not a bad guy, not an evil guy, not a vicious or assaultive guy,” Ritchie said Wednesday in an interview. “He was not someone who went around beating people up.” State Department of Corrections spokesman Chad Lewis said Wednesday that records were unavailable on how long Swegle served for breaking and entering. When Swegle was sentenced, it was not that uncommon for teenage offenders around Swegle’s age to serve time in the state prison system, Lewis added. Swegle had served sentences in four state juvenile institutions by the time he was 16, according to the article. Swegle said in the article that he wanted to quit getting into trouble. “It’s just not worth it, and it’s wrong,” he said. Peninsula Daily News. “Barry Swegle is tearing down our houses,” Barbara Porter told the dispatcher. Davis’ 309 N. Baker St. home had been pushed into Porter’s 2313 E. Pioneer Road home, inflicting “critical damage” on both structures, according to the arrest report. Swegle, of 405 N.

In Davis’ call to 9-1-1, he gives a blow-by-blow account of what happened. “Some guy with a D9 bulldozer that just come out of my property knocked my fence down and knocked my house down,” Davis tells the dispatcher. “He totally wrecked my property.

“This is extremely creative, given what I know about what happened, particularly the burglary counts,” said Unger, who is representing Swegle. Swegle, who earlier Friday had allegedly threatened neighbor Dan Davis, 74, was involved in a fencerelated property-line dispute with Davis, the neighbor said in an earlier interview. The threat was determined to be a civil, not a criminal, matter, Todd VanSickle, a communications supervisor with the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office, said Wednesday. Swegle told an arresting deputy that he “had a confrontation” earlier Friday, “and he is tired of dealing with him over property issues,” according to the report filed after his arrest Friday. Further information on the threat was unavailable Wednesday afternoon. The Sheriff’s Office estimated that about $300,000 of property damage was done in the area of North Baker Street when Swegle allegedly knocked down a power pole, ran three times over Davis’ 2003 Ford F-250 pickup truck and destroyed three houses, two of them owned by Davis.

PORT ANGELES — A 4-year-old Port Angeles boy was taken to Olympic Medical Center after a two-vehicle wreck at the corner of Airport Road and Edgewood Drive near William R.

No more information was available Wednesday afternoon.
EVERETT — A Snohomish County judge has sentenced an inmate to death for killing a state corrections officer in a prison chapel two years ago. Byron Scherf is a convicted rapist who already was serving life in prison when he attacked Officer Jayme Biendl and strangled her with an amplifier cord at the Washington State Reformatory in Monroe in January 2011. A Snohomish County Superior Court jury took about an hour to convict him of aggravated murder last Thursday, and the same jury Wednesday morning recommended the death penalty. The judge formally imposed the sentence Wednesday afternoon. “My thoughts are with the Biendl family and with those jurors who had to listen and make a difficult decision,” said deputy prosecutor Ed Stemler. “I am proud of our sys-
tem of justice.” Scherf, 54, showed no reaction. He was placed in handcuffs as jurors Scherf were led from the courtroom, The Daily Herald of Everett reported. Jurors declined to speak publicly about their verdict, but each stopped on their way from the courthouse to shake hands and exchange a few private words with deputy prosecutor Paul Stern.
Never testified Scherf never testified during the trial and offered no statement in advance of his sentencing. His lawyers didn’t dispute that he strangled Biendl but suggested he didn’t plan to kill her. The jury saw Scherf’s video confession and heard
forensic testimony about how Biendl was strangled. Scherf said he first planned to ambush and beat up Biendl over something she said to him, but he refused to say what that was. In the confession, Scherf detailed how he waited for other inmates to leave the chapel and ambushed Biendl as she locked up her post for the night. He told detectives that Biendl fought him and tried to call for help, but he ripped the radio from her.
Blacked out He said he blacked out during her death. Corrections officers found Scherf sitting in the foyer of the chapel after realizing he wasn’t in his cell during a routine inmate count. Biendl was found two hours later, after a shift officer in the main control area discovered that her radio and keys were missing.

Is a new Watergate developing? Benghazi, IRS targeting bring familiar recollections to Nixon days IN HIS DEFENSE of President Barack Obama, Press Secretary Jay Carney is beginning to sound a lot like Ronald Ziegler, Richard Nixon’s spokesman. Carney only has to use the word “inoperaCal tive,” as Ziegler did when incriminating evi- Thomas dence surfaced that proved his previous statements untrue. Following what appears to be a cover-up in the Benghazi attack, The Washington Post obtained documents from an audit conducted by the IRS’s inspector general that indicate the agency targeted for special scrutiny conservative groups with tea party and “patriot” in their names, as well as “nonprofit groups that criticized the government and sought to educate Americans about the U.S. Constitution.” IRS official Lois Lerner described the targeting efforts as “absolutely inappropriate,” but said IRS actions were not driven by partisanship. How, then, would she explain why no groups with “progressive” in their titles were similarly targeted? Carney labeled Lerner an “appointee from the previous administration.” In other words: Bush’s mistake, not Obama’s. The Post’s editorial board wrote: “A bedrock principle of U.S. democracy is that the coercive powers of government are never used for partisan purpose.” The board called for a full accounting. I doubt we’ll get it. Take Benghazi. ABC News first reported that the now famous Benghazi “talking points” used by U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on five Sunday morning news shows were revised 12 times, deleting references to “the al-Qaidaaffiliated group Ansar al-Sharia [and] CIA warnings about terrorist threats in Beng-
hazi in the months preceding the attack.” Carney said Ambassador Rice’s initial claim — that the attack grew out of protests over a video that insulted Islam — was based on what was known to U.S. intelligence at the time. But as last week’s testimony by three whistle-blowers before the House Oversight Committee revealed, much more was known at the time. Contributing to cover-up suspicions is the administration’s continued stonewalling when asked to provide information on Benghazi. CNN sources acknowledge that “an email discussion about talking points the Obama administration used to describe the deadly attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, show the White House and State Department were more involved than they first said.” The American people deserve the full story. The latest, but probably not the last shocker, is a report in The Daily Caller about CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson, who has “steadily covered the Obama administration’s handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack in Libya,” reportedly frustrating CBS News executives who claim her unrelenting coverage is “bordering on advocacy” on the issue. Now, according to Politico, Attkisson can’t get some of her stories about Benghazi on the air. Oh, did I fail to mention that CBS News President David Rhodes is the brother of Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes? Coincidental? Attkisson is reportedly in talks to leave the network. Is it because she chooses to behave like a real journalist instead of a cheerleader for Obama? Last Friday, Carney held a “secret briefing” on Benghazi for a select number of White House reporters, raising the ire of reporters not in the room.
Is this what the Obama administration calls transparency? Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., has asked Speaker John Boehner to name a select committee to investigate the Benghazi attack with full subpoena powers that could place witnesses under oath. Boehner should. Meanwhile, House Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Charles Boustany, R-La., has demanded the IRS turn over all communications containing the words “conservative,” “patriot” or “tea party.” And the IRS should. Democrats now accuse Republicans of partisanship, claiming their motive is to damage Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential prospects. If she has nothing to hide, transparency should enhance, not harm, her chances. We’ve learned more about Benghazi since her appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in January,
and she should be asked to account for it. In 1972, Republican partisans initially accused Democrats of wanting to destroy President Richard M. Nixon, but most were forced to acknowledge his culpability in Watergate once the facts became known. One of the Articles of Impeachment of Nixon concerned his misuse of the IRS to undermine political enemies. Journalists should stop protecting President Obama and Hillary Clinton and do their jobs, like Sharyl Attkisson. Congressional Republicans should press for all the facts. That’s their job.

Guatemalans’ brave turn puts away an ex-dictator FORMER GUATEMALAN PRESIDENT Efrain Rios Montt was hauled off to prison last Friday. It was a Amy historic moment, the Goodman first time in history that a former leader of a country was tried for genocide in a national court. More than three decades after he seized power in a coup in Guatemala, unleashing a U.S.-backed campaign of slaughter against his own people, the 86-year-old stood trial, charged with genocide and crimes against humanity. He was given an 80-year prison sentence. The case was inspired and pursued by three brave Guatemalan women: the judge, the attorney general and the Nobel Peace Prize laureate. “My brother Patrocinio was burnt to death in the Ixil region. We never found his remains,” Rigoberta Menchu told me after Rios Montt’s verdict was announced. She detailed the systematic slaughter of her family: “As for my mother, we never found her remains, either. . . . If her remains weren’t eaten by wild
animals after having been tortured brutally and humiliated, then her remains are probably in a mass grave close to the Ixil region. . . . My father was also burned alive in the embassy of Spain [in Guatemala City] on January 30th, 1980.” Rigoberta Menchu was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1992, “in recognition of her work for social justice and ethnocultural reconciliation based on respect for the rights of indigenous peoples.” She continued telling me about her family’s destruction: “In 1983, my brother Victor Menchu was also shot dead. His wife had her throat slit, and he was fleeing with his three children. “Victor was jailed in the little town, but his three children were kept in a military bunker. My two nieces died of hunger in this military base, and my brother Victor was shot. We still have not found his remains.” According to the official Commission on Historical Clarification, which undertook a comprehensive investigation of Guatemala’s three-decade genocide, at least 200,000 people were killed. Menchu brought one of the original lawsuits against the perpetrators of the genocide, which resulted in the trial that ended with Rios Montt’s conviction. Claudia Paz y Paz Bailey was

appointed as Guatemala’s first female attorney general in December 2010, and has earned wide acclaim for her pursuit of perpetrators of crimes against humanity. The judge in the case is another woman, Yassmin Barrios. Journalist Allan Nairn, who has covered Guatemala, among other conflict zones, since the early 1980s, observed the trial. In mid-April, the trial was ordered shut down by another Guatemalan court, presumably under the influence of President Otto Perez Molina. From Guatemala City, Nairn reported then: “The judge, Yassmin Barrios, and the attorney general, Claudia Paz y Paz, both say they’re going to defy this order to kill the case, which is extraordinary.” They continued the trial, and eventually Rios Montt was found guilty. Nairn said, after the verdict: “Judge Barrios . . . ran the trial. She was the one who had to deliver the verdict. As she left the courthouse every night, you could see her wearing a bulletproof vest. “The judges and prosecutors involved in the case received death threats. In one case, a threat against a prosecutor, the person delivering the threat put a pistol on the table and said, ‘I know where your children are.’ It takes a lot of courage to push a case like this.”

Menchu said: “This verdict is historic. It’s monumental. The verdict against Rios Montt is historic. We waited for 33 years for justice to prevail. It’s clear that there is no peace without justice.” It is all the more so because it occurred in a national court in Guatemala. Nairn was supposed to testify at the trial. One interview he conducted in 1982 has attracted widespread attention. On camera, he spoke with “Major Tito,” who said entire families of indigenous villagers worked with the guerrillas. Tito’s troops told Nairn that they routinely killed such civilian villagers. “Tito,” it turns out, is none other than the current president of Guatemala, Otto Perez Molina. Nairn sees the guilty verdict against Rios Montt as an opening to potential prosecution of Perez Molina and others: Regardless of where the case goes from here, Guatemala has set an example for the world, away from violence and impunity.

Amy Goodman’s column [“Sexual Assault Rampant in Military,” PDN, May 9] provided a painful insight on the state of our country. Its social fabric is unraveling at every turn, or so it seems. As a retired Air Force officer, and a gentleman, I wonder if President [Bill] Clinton as commander in chief, whose sexual transgressions in the Oval Office led to impeachment, was not the lack-of-leadership trait that helped lead us into a national nosedive — military, as well as civilian. Here we had the president of the United States, the commander in chief, on the world stage. You see, honor and principles cannot be mandated or come with titles; rather they are learned, accepted and lived.

Bulldozer violence When will all this bulldozer violence stop? We need to enact tough antibulldozer laws now. Bulldozers are too easily available to average citizens. I propose a bulldozer buy-back program to stop bulldozer violence. When our country is free of bulldozers, then we will feel safe again. James V. Loran, Port Angeles

Wearable Art Show shines BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” The people in the crowd were almost too dazzled to clap. But as Karyn Temple, face painted white and lips crimson, danced her way out of a multi-sleeve coat, the observers began to applaud madly. Then, they applauded some more. The coat, constructed by Paula Lalish of Nordland, was one of 32 pieces in last weekendâ€™s kaleidoscopic Wearable Art Show at the Port Townsend Elks Club. Titled â€œAt the Risk of
Repeating Myself,â€? Lalishâ€™s coat was an apparently seamless garment with 19 sleeves. Temple first slipped out of it, turning like a spool as an unidentified man in a black suit stretched the coat out beside her. Then, she whirled back in, one sleeve after another.
Best in Show â€œRepeating Myself,â€? in its draped glory, won the Best in Show and Peopleâ€™s Choice awards Saturday, netting Lalish cash prizes of $250 and $150 respectively. Then it was sold to Nancy Karason of Seattle, who plans to display it in the window of her clothing store, OSKA, at 1322 Fifth Ave. in Seattle, this week. The third annual Wearable
Kristen Chittick of Port Angeles models â€œMademoiselle Couverture,â€? a ball gown made of yogurt lids and bottle caps, in Saturdayâ€™s Port Townsend Wearable Art Show. The silvery dress, created by Trisa Chomica of Port Angeles, took second prize.

Art Show, a benefit for the Jefferson County Fund for Women and Girls, has grown its attendance considerably. For the past two years, it was held at the Madrona MindBody Institute at Fort Worden State Park, but this spring, it moved to the Elks Club, taking the capacity from 300 to 740 spectators. Ticket sales for the two performances, the matinee and the sold-out evening show, totaled a little more than $16,000, said organizer Debbi Steele. About $1,400 came in from the 30 percent cut from purchases of apparel at the shows, plus $832 from sales of Working Girl Wines donated by Olympic Cellars. When it came to materials, the wearable-art makers pulled out all the stops.

Park closes Hoh River IF YOU’LL ALLOW me to take a break from talking halibut, there is news to share regarding the Hoh River. The Hoh Lee opens to salmon fishing today, Horton joining the Sol Duc and Quillayute as fishable rivers for spring chinook. Well, to be more specific, only a portion of the Hoh is opening to salmon fishing. Within Olympic National Park, the Hoh will be closed to recreational fishing, effective immediately, through Aug. 31. The closure, which the park announced this week, was enacted in an effort to protect the wild chinook population that has been declining in recent years. Only the waters of the Hoh within the park — which is about 56 percent of the river — are closed. This includes the upper portion of the Hoh, the south fork, all tributaries and the Hoh River mouth within the park. The upper Hoh will be closed through October 31. The closure isn’t a big surprise, and it shouldn’t impact river fishing too much. “It’s not a big deal. You can’t keep them, anyway,” Bob Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods (360-374-6330) in Forks said. Meanwhile, much of the remainder of the Hoh opens to hatchery salmon fishing today, including from the park boundary to Willoughby Creek. (Willoughby Creek opens Saturday, June 1.) The daily limit is six salmon, with a minimum size of 12 inches. Only one adult chinook may be retained.
Sol Duc springers Recently, most anglers have been hitting the Pacific Ocean or the Strait of Juan de Fuca to catch some halibut. It’s understandable. The halibut fishery is fleeting, especially this year when the days to fish the big uglies has been reduced in some areas of the North Olympic Peninsula. But anglers who have ventured to the West End rivers — mainly the Sol Duc — have been treated to some good salmon fishing. The weather has conspired to create good conditions — not too sunny and warm, not too wet. “You don’t want too much of anything,” Gooding said. “The nice weather is nice, but it ain’t the best for fishing.” The forecast for the next few days looks like more stop-and-start rain, so the springer fishing should remain a productive use of your time.
Halibut Of course, why fish the rivers during halibut season? The fishery gets back underway today in Marine Areas 3 (LaPush), 4 (Neah Bay), 6 (Eastern Strait) and 9 (Admiralty Inlet). This is the first week all of those areas will be open. It is conceivable that more open areas will curtail the pressure in each area, as options are no longer limited. Gooding said the uptick in visitors lacked subtlety last weekend. “People go absolutely nuts for halibut,” he said. Marine Areas 3 and 4 are open for halibut fishing today and Saturday. Anglers can also fish salmon Friday and Saturday in the coastal areas. The Marine Areas 6 and 9 halibut fisheries are open today through Saturday. The Sekiu halibut season doesn’t open until next Thursday, May 23.

NBA owners voted Wednesday to reject the Kings’ proposed move to Seattle.
Kingless in Seattle NBA declines Seattle group’s bid to buy team MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE
DALLAS — Put away your Sonics gear; the NBA is not coming back yet. NBA owners voted Wednesday to reject the Sacramento Kings’ proposed move to Seattle, the latest in a long line of cities that have tried to land the franchise. The 22-8 vote followed a recommendation made last month by the NBA’s relocation committee and may have finally brought an end to an emotional saga that has dragged on for nearly three years. A group led by investor
Chris Hansen had a deal to buy the team. Hansen hoped to move the franchise to Seattle and rename it the SuperSonics. The original Sonics were moved to Oklahoma City in 2008 and were renamed the Thunder. Commissioner David Stern said the league will spend the next 24 to 48 hours talking to the Maloofs, the team’s owners, about working out a deal with a competing ownership group in Sacramento. “The big winner here was Sacramento,” Stern said. Of Seattle’s prospects for getting an NBA expansion team,
NBA Stern said there was nothing to announce. “We look forward to continuing a dialogue of some type with the citizens and the [Seattle] investors,” he said. The Maloofs reached an agreement in January to sell a 65 percent controlling interest in the team to Hansen’s group at a total franchise valuation of $525 million, topping the NBArecord $450 million for Joe Lacob and Peter Guber to buy the Warriors in 2010. Then Hansen increased his offer to $550 million, which implies buying the 65 percent stake for about $357 million. Following the relocation committee’s unanimous recommendation on April 29 to deny the
move to Seattle, Hansen and Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer dug deeper into their pockets in a final attempt to sway the NBA Board of Governors. They raised the valuation of the Kings to $625 million, or $406 million for the Maloofs’ interest in the franchise, and offered a $115 million relocation fee, nearly four times what Clay Bennett paid to move the Sonics. Hansen’s group also guaranteed owners that the franchise would pay into the league’s revenue-sharing system in Seattle and not collect money as it has in Sacramento. They were aggressive and bold public statements that had been lacking from the Seattle group through much of the process while Sacramento openly made its case in the public eye. TURN
PA sending 5 golfers to state Payton and 2 teammates finish in top 8 PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
BREMERTON — The Port Angeles boys golf team’s goal of a top-three finish at the 2A state tournament received a big boost when Garrett Payton, Alex Atwell and Austin Underwood qualified for state at the 2A bi-district tournament at Gold Mountain Golf Club. The three Roughriders finished in the top eight at bi-districts Tuesday. The three Riders will be joined at state by teammates Joe Barnes and Micah Needham, who both advanced directly to state from the Olympic League tournament last week. Sequim’s only participant at the district tournament, Jesse

Before the round, Mitrovich told Payton, Atwell and Underwood to “enjoy the process of playing, don’t be results oriented.” The Port Angeles five have been invited by members of Peninsula Golf Club, the Riders’ home course, to play a round at Chambers Bay this weekend. They also will play an official practice round alongside the other state qualifiers Monday. Chambers Bay is the site of the 2015 U.S. Open. That in itself is exciting, but Mitrovich also likes a change from the Classic Golf Club in Spanaway, which tends to play summer rules despite not being in summer condition. The 2A state tournament tees off Tuesday. The Riders’ focus will first be to make the cut, and then chase the top-three finish in Wednesday’s final round. TURN

BY DOUG FERGUSON THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — Two marshals say Tiger Woods never said anything to them about whether Sergio Garcia had played his shot. Two other marshals disputed that account, one of them saying he told Woods that Garcia had already hit on the second hole at the TPC Sawgrass. In the days since Woods won The Players Championship, the dispute has shifted from players to volunteer marshals. It started Saturday in the third round when Woods was deep in the trees, some 50 yards to the left of Garcia in the fairway. Woods pulled a 5-wood from his bag to play a highrisk shot through a gap in the trees, and the crowd cheered his decision — right about the time Garcia was playing his shot. Woods said marshals told him Garcia had already played his shot. Asked about the poor shot he hit that led to bogey, Garcia said that Woods should have known the Spaniard was about to hit, and he suggested that Woods might have instigated the disruptive cheer. Woods said later Saturday that Garcia didn’t have all the facts. “The marshals, they told me already hit, so I pulled a club and was getting ready to play my shot,” Woods said. None of this had any bearing on the outcome, and there were no rules violation. But it became testy when Sports Illustrated quoted two marshals as saying they told Woods no such thing. One of them was John North, the head marshal for that section of the golf course. He told the magazine, “Nothing was said to us and we certainly said nothing to him. I was disappointed to hear him make those remarks. “We’re there to help the players and enhance the experience of the fans. He was saying what was good

“It is not true and definitely unfair to Tiger. That’s because I was the one Tiger heard say that Sergio hit.” BRIAN NEDRICH Marshal at second hold for him. It lacked character.” The Florida TimesUnion, however, quoted two marshals as saying there was communication between Woods and volunteers. “It is not true and definitely unfair to Tiger,” said Brian Nedrich, a marshal at the second hole. “That’s because I was the one Tiger heard say that Sergio hit.” Nedrich said he was about 10 yards from Woods, and while he could barely see Garcia, he said he got a glimpse of him swinging and saw the ball in the air.
He said when the crowd began to stir around Woods, another marshal, Lance Paczkowski, tried to quiet them by saying, “The other player hasn’t hit yet.” “That’s when I yelled back at Lance, ‘No . . . he’s already hit,” Nedrich told the newspaper. “Tiger had already taken his club, but we did tell him that Sergio had hit.” It became a particularly sensitive issue to the Woods camp because several websites had the word “lied” in its headlines. Sports Illustrated posted an update on its website
Wednesday that it had a follow-up interview with North, who said with an earpiece in one ear, it was possible that other officials had an exchange with Woods that he didn’t hear. North said his statement about “lacking character” was based on his understanding that no marshal had said anything to Woods. Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, said in a statement that the comments from the marshals in the Florida Times-Union story “definitively show that Tiger was telling the truth about being told Sergio had hit. “I hope this demonstrates to some reporters the importance of accuracy and not jumping to misplaced conclusions.”
Storm King tryouts slated for Sunday PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Storm King Soccer Club will be holding tryouts Sunday and Monday for its 2013 youth select teams, which will begin practice during the summer and play in a competitive traveling league this fall. Players in the boys and Girls U11-U18 brackets are encouraged to try out. Tryouts start Sunday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and conclude Monday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Agnew Soc-
cer Fields off of Old Olympic Highway, 1240 N. Barr Road in Port Angeles. Pre-registration for the tryouts is at www.stormkingsoccer.com. Players are asked to arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled tryout. Tryouts are free, and families will not need to commit to any fees or uniforms until teams are selected and announced in late June. Teams are formed based on player and coach inter-
est. If a team is not listed for a particular age group, contact team officials on the Storm King website. Players may try out for teams one year above their age group only if their current age group team is unavailable.

soccer. Port Angles Youth Soccer Club, Sequim Junior Soccer Club and Storm King SC make up the Olympic Youth Soccer Association, and this group formed the Storm King program in the early 1990s so that local players would have the opportunity to compete in competitive leagues outside the Port Angeles-Sequim area. Storm King SC is an allvolunteer club comprised of volunteer board members, coaches, managers and maintenance workers.

State jobless rate falls to 7% in April THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA â€” Washington stateâ€™s unemployment rate dropped to 7 percent in April, and the state added an estimated 3,800 jobs last month, state Employment Security Department officials said Wednesday. (County-by-county employment numbers, including those for Clallam and Jefferson counties, will be released Tuesday.) The state has now regained about 78 percent of the more than 200,000 jobs lost during the recession, state officials said. The stateâ€™s unemployment rate has fallen by half a percentage point since the start of the year, with Aprilâ€™s rate down from Marchâ€™s 7.3 percent. The stateâ€™s jobless rate is now the lowest since December 2008, when it was at 7.1 percent. The state â€œlabor market is continuing to improve at a moderate but accelerating rate, somewhat faster than the nation,â€? Scott Bailey, a labor economist for Employment Security, said in a statement. The national unemployment rate for April was 7.5 percent. Since April 2012, when Washington stateâ€™s unemployment rate was 8.4 percent, the state has gained a total of 67,200 jobs. The latest figures show that economists significantly revised job loss numbers for March from an initial estimate of 5,500 down to 1,600 jobs.
Industries that saw the greatest job gains in April included retail trade, up 3,800 jobs; leisure and hospitality, up 1,600 jobs; and professional and business services, which gained 1,500 jobs. Job losses were seen in education and health services, which lost 2,500 jobs; construction, down 1,100; and transportation, warehousing and utilities, which lost 500 jobs. Wholesale trade saw a decrease of 300 jobs. The unemployment rate represents the percentage of the labor force thatâ€™s unemployed and actively looking for work. People who quit looking for work are not counted.
Survey of businesses The job gains and losses estimates are based on a U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics survey of businesses. A drop in the unemployment rate sometimes indicates a drop in the labor force because of so-called discouraged workers who have stopped actively looking for work or just retired early. But in a conference call with reporters Wednesday, Bailey said that was not the case for April. â€œThis is a pure positive trend that weâ€™re looking at right now,â€? he said. More than 243,000 people were unemployed in the state and looking for work last month, including nearly 130,800 who claimed unemployment benefits, Bailey said.
VANCOUVER, Wash. â€” Country Aire Natural Foods Market has been recognized as the Business of the Year at the Washington Main Streetâ€™s â€œExcellence on Mainâ€? award ceremonies. The award was given last week in conjunction with RevitalizeWA, Washington Stateâ€™s Preservation and Main Street Conference. Country Aire Natural Foods owners Robyn and John R. Miletich Miletich began selling bulk food, herbs and spices in 1975. Although the first market was successful, the Country Aire retail space was described by the owners as the â€œmost inconvenient store downtownâ€? as it had no private parking, minimal street exposure and narrow aisles. Then in May 2009, the 35,000square-foot Gottschalks department store closed, leaving a noticeable hole in the downtown retail core.
Matching grant from city The space sat vacant for two years until the Miletiches came to the rescue. Wanting to create a space that would draw people downtown, the Miletiches got help from a matching grant from the city of Port Angeles for faĂ§ade renovations and began construction in 2011, ultimately transforming the building into the new Country Aire Natural Foods Market. The new store, which opened in May 2012, is five times the size of the original and includes a larger deli, more local produce, fair trade goods, locally made wines and ciders. Soon, this lineup will include the areaâ€™s largest butcher shop, featuring hormone-free meats, the owners said. â€œEveryone in this community knew that Robyn and John would create something special, but no one knew just how special it would be,â€? said Port Angeles Downtown Association Executive Director Barbara Frederick. Said Sarah Hansen, Washington State Main Street coordinator: â€œThe Miletiches clearly see the importance of investing in the community and have focused on creating an inviting retail space while continuously increasing and expanding their offerings. â€œTheir vision and hard work has paid off; theyâ€™ve created 50 local jobs and a loyalty program boasting more than 4,500 members. â€œTheir success is an inspiration.â€? â€œExcellence on Mainâ€? awards recognize communities, organizations and individuals who help achieve sustainable communities and economic vitality in Washington state through downtown revitalization and preservation.

WASHINGTON â€” The Food and Drug Administration has approved a new injectable drug that uses radiation to treat advanced prostate cancer that has spread to the bones. The FDA said Wednesday it approved the drug, Xofigo from Bayer Pharmaceuticals, for men whose cancer has grown into bone tumors even after receiving medication or surgery to lower testosterone. The hormone spurs growth of prostate tumors. More than 238,000 U.S. men will be diagnosed
with prostate cancer this year, and 29,720 will die from the disease, according to the National Cancer Institute.
809 men in study Regulators approved Xofigo based on a study of 809 men with advanced prostate cancer who received the drug or placebo. Patients taking Xofigo typically lived 14 months compared with 11.2 months for those taking placebo. Xofigoâ€™s side effects include nausea and diarrhea.
