Water Street ‘should be open’ by afternoon BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — Water Street should be ready for traffic by this afternoon, city personnel said. “It should be open by Tuesday,” City Engineer Dave Peterson said Monday. “The water’s back on,” he said. “We need to put concrete fill underneath the road and wait for it to dry before laying down temporary pavement.” A broken water main early Sunday closed Water Street — state Highway 20 — between Washington Street and the Port Townsend ferry terminal. Crews worked throughout the day to repair the break.
Water service was restored to businesses and homes on the west end of downtown by afternoon, but the road repairs could not be accomplished until material from Issaquah arrived. The underground location of the leak was pinpointed at 10:15 a.m. Sunday, with the pipe replaced and water restored at around 3 p.m.
Traffic detoured Monday The broken pipe was in front of the Tides Inn at 1807 Water St., where guests got half off their room charges, said employee Skeeter Martinez. Water Street remained closed Monday between the ferry terminal and Washington Street, which was
used as a detour for downtown traffic. The Bayview Restaurant, midway between the two points, will remain shuttered until the road is reopened, said owner Kelly Anthony. “Our water came back, but there is no way that anyone can reach the restaurant,” she said, adding, “I wish they could have opened one side of the street so people could get here.” Peterson said pavement will be replaced on the area covering the pipe with a temporary patch that will be made permanent in the spring. He said a cost estimate of the repair has not been determined. The largest expense, Peterson said, will be staff overtime.
New Star is getting new berth No word yet on where DNR will tow derelict BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT LUDLOW — The New Star may leave Port Ludlow Marina this week after overstaying its welcome by about 14 weeks. The rusting, engineless ship, moored at the pleasure-boat marina since Oct. 1, could be moved to a new location as early as Friday, according to a state Department of Natural Resources spokesperson. “We’d like to have it moved by the end of the week, but it depends on the weather and other factors.” spokeswoman Toni Dro-

Obama announces CIA, Pentagon nods Both choices are tainted by notoriety THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Despite Republican misgivings, President Barack Obama said Monday he will nominate former GOP Sen. Chuck Hagel as his next defense secretary, calling him “the leader our troops deserve.” He also chose White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan to lead the Central Intelligence Agency. Controversy surrounds both choices, but the president called on the Senate to quickly confirm both. Obama announced his choice of Hagel, a political moderate who represented Nebraska in the Senate, even as critics questioned the pick over issues including Hagel’s views on Israel and Iran. Obama praised his independence and bipartisan approach, and said that Hagel, a Vietnam veteran, understands war is not an abstraction. He also praised Hagel, 66, as one who could make “tough fiscal choices.” Brennan, 57, a 25-year CIA veteran, is a close Obama adviser

The protesters were acting in support of the Southern Weekly in its confrontation with a top censor after the publication was forced to change a New Year’s editorial calling for political reform into a tribute praising the ruling Communist Party. Rumors circulated that at least one of the newspaper’s news departments was going on strike. Protesters, including middle school students and white-collar workers, gathered outside the offices of the newspaper in the southern city of Guangzhou to lay flowers at the gate, hold signs and shout slogans. “I feel that the ordinary people must awaken,” said one of the protesters, Yuan Fengchu.

Officers: Holmes appeared relaxed after Colo. arrest THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Police officers who arrested James Holmes after the Colorado movie theater massacre described Monday the suspected gunman, clad in body armor, as unusually relaxed but fidgety at times. Holmes didn’t resist arrest behind the theater and volunteered that his apartment had been booby trapped, the officers testified at the opening of a hearing in which prosecutors began laying out their case against the former graduate student. Officer Jason Obiatt said Holmes didn’t seem to have “normal emotional reactions. “He seemed very detached from it all,” he said.
When Obiatt first saw Holmes in his gear standing next to his car, he thought he was a fellow officer until he realized that Holmes Holmes was standing still and not rushing toward the theater. Obiatt pointed his gun at him, handcuffed him and searched him. He said he found two knives and a semi-automatic handgun on top of Holmes’ car. Obiatt said an ammunition round also fell out of Holmes’ pocket, and he found another one on the ground. Investigators said Holmes tossed two gas canisters, then
opened fire at a midnight showing of the Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises” on July 20, killing 12 people and wounding dozens. The preliminary hearing, expected to last all week, will allow the judge to determine whether the prosecution’s case is strong enough to warrant a trial.
More than 160 counts Holmes is charged with more than 160 counts, including murder and attempted murder. Legal analysts said Holmes may well accept a plea agreement before trial. In such cases, the preliminary hearing can set the stage for a deal by letting each side assess the other’s strengths and weaknesses.

World: Coal mine gas leak kills 8 in northern Turkey
ASTRONOMERS ESTIMATE THAT one in six stars in our Milky Way galaxy has a planet the size of Earth orbiting it. That translates to at least 17 billion Earth-size planets. Two independent groups came up with similar estimates after analyzing data from NASA’s Kepler spacecraft, launched in 2009 to track down other Earths. The findings were presented Monday at the American Astronomical Society in Long Beach, Calif. The goal has long been to find a planet similar in size to Earth that’s located in the so-called Goldilocks zone — a place that’s not too hot and not too cold, where water might exist.
A SMALL ELECTRICAL fire filled the cabin of a Japan Airlines Boeing 787 with smoke about 15 minutes after it landed in Boston on Monday. The Massachusetts Port Authority’s fire chief said the 173 passengers and 11 crew members had departed the jet when a mechanic spotted smoke at about 10:45 a.m. No one was hurt. Chief Bob Donahue said he thinks the fire in the auxiliary battery system started after the plane landed at Logan International Airport. He said it was quickly brought under control. Japan Airlines began nonstop service between Boston and Tokyo using the new Boeing Dreamliner in April.
THE SUPREME COURT won’t overturn a Georgia law banning firearms in places of worship. The high court Monday refused to hear an appeal from GeorgiaCarry.org, which wanted the justices to overturn a lower court decision upholding Georgia’s law banning guns in churches. The group said the ban burdens “religiously motivated conduct by regulating how or what a worshipper can do with a weapon while he is worshipping.” But the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court’s dismissal of the lawsuit, and the Supreme Court, without comment, refused to reconsider that ruling.
A GAS LEAK inside a coal mine in northern Turkey killed eight workers Monday, Turkish officials said. The miners were opening up space to reach a coal deposit when they were hit by a sudden methane gas discharge, Burhan Inan, the head of Turkey’s coal mining authority, said. Eight workers died from breathing the gas or getting trapped under coal dust after the discharge. One worker was rescued with injuries. Six others were evacuated unharmed, Inan said. The accident in Zonguldak province, on the Black Sea coast, comes at a time when Turkey is trying to improve safety conditions in its mines.

Two survivors of Oregon tour bus crash file suit THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PORTLAND, Ore. â€” Two survivors of an Eastern Oregon tour bus crash that killed nine passengers allege in a lawsuit that the driver was tired, didnâ€™t heed warnings and was going too fast on a road with patches of snow and ice. Attorney Charles Herrmann filed the suit against Mi Joo Tour & Travel late Sunday in Pierce County on behalf of two South Korean exchange students who were among the 38 people
injured in the Dec. 30 crash. The complaint says the bus driver doubled as a tour guide and worked at least 90 hours without relief over the first eight days of the nine-day tour package, a violation of U.S. regulations that limit drivers to 70 hours in an eight-day span. â€œIâ€™ve got it from the witnesses, Iâ€™ve got it from the schedule and Iâ€™ve got it from the mileage,â€? Herrmann said Monday. â€œPut it all together and itâ€™s quite clear.â€?

PA to start new round of â€˜smartâ€™ meter tests in April BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” After multiple network integration issues have stalled final implementation for at least a year, Port Angeles city officials expect to begin another round of testing of roughly 2,000 â€œsmartâ€? water and electricity meters this April. The cityâ€™s $5.4 million advanced metering infrastructure project â€” commonly referred to as the AMI or â€œsmart meterâ€? project â€” was supposed to be
wrapped up by last January. But it has been plagued by issues connecting the cityâ€™s utility customer information system with that of North-Carolina based Mueller Systems, which is installing the smart meters, city Power Resources Manager Phil Lusk said.
Two years Slightly more than two years have passed since City Council members approved the project in December 2010. Installers with Mueller
Systems started work on the meter project about 19 months ago, in June 2011. City officials touted the project as a way for the city to reduce meter-reading costs and as away for customers to get a better handle of how much electricity and water they use. Lusk said Saturday that the new meters also will allow the city to collect data on water and power use as accurately as possible. â€œThe meters are [the cityâ€™s] cash registers,â€? Lusk said. â€œ[So] we want to have the most accurate reporting tools available, and our customers will want that also.â€? The smart meters even-
tually will replace all of the cityâ€™s roughly 10,500 analog water and electric meters, both residential and commercial, with digital devices that can be read wirelessly from City Hall.
First 2,000 Installation of the first batch of 1,000 electric and 1,000 water meters on homes in a residential neighborhood around I Street in west Port Angeles was completed in 2011, Lusk said, but computer system problems delayed the replacement of any more analog meters with their digital counterparts.

sions under pressure,” said the current Forks mayor, Bryon Monohon. Monohon said that he has confidence that the new chief, trained by Arbeiter, “will come in with his feet under him.” Arbeiter was an active and committed member of the Clallam County Fire Chiefs Association, said Port Angeles City Manager Dan McKeen, who was fire chief in Port Angeles for 13 years before stepping into the city manager position last year. “He was always looking for a better way to approach things in his department,” McKeen said. McKeen said that Arbeiter’s service as fire chief for 40 years is unusual, and that Forks is fortunate to have had him for so long. “Phil has provided the Forks area with leadership that is needed for dependable fire service,” he said.
FORKS — After 44 years of service, countless fires, car wrecks and medical emergency calls on the West End, Fire Chief Phil Arbeiter has stepped into the new year as a civilian. Arbeiter, 67, officially retired Jan. 1, handing the reins of Forks-based Clallam County Fire District 1 to Arbeiter Bill Paul. Arbeiter, who joined the department as a volunteer firefighter in 1969, said that when the fire chief’s position went unfilled, he took classes to become eligible, applied and was appointed chief by the fire commissioners in 1972. “No one else wanted to do it,” Arbeiter said.

3 more flu deaths reported in state THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE — Three more people have died from the flu in Western Washington, bringing the total of reported state deaths to six, health officials said Monday. The Snohomish Health District reported three deaths in late December in Snohomish hospitals: a Bothell woman in her 40s, an Everett woman in her 80s and an Edmonds woman in her 80s. All three had underlying medical conditions. State health officials believe the six influenza deaths reported across the state so far are likely just a fraction of the total because
only laboratory-confirmed flu deaths are reportable. Health Department spokesman Donn Moyer said there likely are more deaths where flu played a role, but the person was not tested for influenza. In late December, state health officials reported three other laboratory-confirmed deaths: a Pierce County boy under 12 years old, a King County man in his 80s and a King County woman in her 70s. Health officials are urging everyone older than 6 months to get a flu shot, to wash their hands often and to stay home if they are sick.

FORKS — A 20-foot container was due to arrive at the state Department of Natural Resources’ Olympic Region complex Monday to help store salvaged items from a Jan. 2 fire that destroyed a 7,500-squarefoot DNR building. The building contained a warehouse, shop, six offices, a fire engine that was severely damaged and three vehicles that cannot be repaired. A eight-person recovery team, including seven Olympic Region employees from outside of the Forks area, also was slated to arrive Monday to assist in recovery efforts.
Investigation ended An investigation into the cause of the 12:19 a.m. Jan. 2 blaze at 411 Tillicum Lane ended Friday, DNR spokesman Dave Cole said Monday. Cole said did not know the result of the investigation. West End Fire District No. 1 has jurisdiction over the investigation, DNR Director of Communications Bryan Flint said.

PORT ANGELES — A state Department of Ecology report has concluded that uplands at the Rayonier Inc. pulp mill site contain low pollutant levels. “Because of past interim actions (partial cleanups) that removed over 30,000 tons of contaminated soil, only lower levels of contamination remain across much of the upland,” Ecology said in a news release Monday announcing the report. The study is available at http://tinyurl.com/ site-jan13; at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St.; and at the Peninsula College Library, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd. The review consists of a
178-page report and 938 pages of appendices. Ecology will not hold a comment period on the report until 2014 “because it is so large and technical,” the agency said on its website at www.ecy.wa.gov in a January publication on the mill from Ecology’s Toxics Cleanup Program.
Eight acres studied The upland area consists of about an 8-acre patch on the southeast corner of the 75-acre mill site, according to a map contained in the publication. “The results of soil sampling conducted in previous interim action areas during the 2010-2011 supplemental upland investigation indicate that the interim actions were successful in

Rayonier operated the mill from 1930 and to 1997, leaving pockets of contamination including PCBs, dioxins and other toxic chemicals. Wastewater, liquid waste and other by-products were discharged directly into Port Angeles Harbor until the 1970s. Rayonier’s Marine Data Summary Report is due in March.

In addition, the concentration of PCBs and metals in soil under the mill property are, in general, “relatively low, and the areas where PCBs and metals may have leached to groundwater appear to be limited in spatial extent,” the report concluded. Concentrations of metals, dioxins and ammonia were similar in surface water samples taken upstream and downstream of areas where pulp processing and support activities took place, the report concluded. “This indicates that present-day surface water quality in Ennis Creek and

Briefly . . . Protesters block traffic at Coho site VICTORIA â€” Several hundred protesters blocked the MV Coho ferry terminal, stranding motorists trying to get to Belleville Street and adding fuel to the growing Idle No More movement across Canada. First Nations singers and drummers shut down the intersection at Belleville and Oswego streets shortly before the Coho arrived from Port Angeles about 3:30 p.m. Saturday. The protesters held their position at the entrance to the ferry terminal until dusk, forcing arrivals from the United States to sit on the dock for about an hour. First Nations elders then cleared a path through the crowd, allowing police to escort the stranded motorists out of the terminal. The protesters opposed legislation that they say weakens First Nations environmental authority in northern British Columbia, including in an area of a proposed oil pipeline. A public hearing on the pipeline continued in Victoria on Monday.

She said her first two weeks as coordinator have been the â€œbest two weeks Iâ€™ve had on a job.â€? â€œItâ€™s been a program with a lot of history here, and I hope to continue that,â€? Howell said. As the coordinator, Howell will work closely with the nonviolent offenders who qualify for the program. She will ensure that they get to treatment, counseling, weekly court hearings and take regular drug tests. The coordinator also works with offenders on housing issues, employment and education, Howell said. Kayes said Howellâ€™s past experience as a Drug Court
prosecutor will be an asset. â€œSheâ€™s very familiar with our Drug Court and the procedures and all that,â€? said Kayes, who will spend another few weeks training Howell before he makes his retirement official. Last summer, the county hired Kevin Crittenden to replace Kayes as program coordinator, but Crittenden accepted another job after Kayes had trained him. Kayes said he encouraged Howell to apply, and that she was one of â€œtwo very good applicants.â€? One of Howellâ€™s greatest strengths, Kayes said, is her skills in â€œdealing with drug addicts that arenâ€™t always the easiest people to deal with.â€? â€œIf youâ€™re not strong, youâ€™re going to get run over,â€? he added. â€œSuccessful Drug Court people for all these
years have said what has worked for them was finally being held accountable.â€?
â€˜Ripple effectâ€™ Howell said there is a â€œripple effectâ€? with every Drug Court graduation as the family members of addicts get their loved ones back. â€œThereâ€™s been some pretty memorable stories about families reunited with people that have been through the criminal justice system coming to Drug Court, and now theyâ€™re employed and doing really great things and able to give back,â€? she said.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Tuesday, January 8, 2013 PAGE
Suffering fools gladly — in 2013 RECENTLY, I WAS reading a magazine profile of a brilliant statistician. The article mentioned, in passing, that this guy doesn’t suffer fools gladly. I come across that David phrase a lot. Brooks I’ve read that Al Gore and former Rep. Barney Frank don’t suffer fools gladly. Neither, apparently, did Steve Jobs, George Harrison, Pauline Kael or even Henry David Thoreau. The phrase originally came from William Tyndale’s 1534 translation of the Bible. In it, Paul was ripping into the decadent citizens of Corinth for turning away from his own authoritative teaching and falling for a bunch of second-rate false apostles. “For ye suffers fool gladly,” Paul says with withering sarcasm, “seeing ye yourselves are wise.” Today, the phrase is often used as an ambiguous compliment. It suggests that a person is so smart he has trouble tolerating people who are far below his own high standards. It is used to describe a person who is so passionately committed to a vital cause that he doesn’t have time for social niceties toward those idiots who stand in its way. It is used to suggest a level of social courage; a person who has the guts to tell idiots what he really thinks. Sure, it would be better if
such people were nicer to those around them, the phrase implies, but this is a forgivable sin in one so talented. The actor Ed Harris’ “penetrating gaze signals that this is a serious, somber man on a singular quest,” a writer observed in The Toronto Sun. “He doesn’t suffer fools gladly, if at all.” This sounds fine in the abstract, but when you actually witness somebody in the act of not suffering fools gladly, it looks rotten. Once I watched a senior member of the House of Representatives rip into a young reporter after she nervously asked him an ill-informed question. She was foolish about that particular piece of legislation, but, in the moment, he looked the bigger fool. He was making a snap judgment about a person with no real information about her actual qualities. He was exposing a yawning gap between his own high opinion of himself and his actual conduct in the world. He was making the mistake, which metaphysical fools tend to make, that there is no connection between your inner moral quality and the level of courtesy you present to others. Smart people who’ve thought about this usually understand that the habits we put in practice end up shaping the people we are within. “Manners are of more importance than laws,” Edmund Burke wrote. “Manners are what vex or soothe, corrupt or purify, exalt or debase, barbarize or refine us, by a constant, steady, uniform, insensible operation, like that of

smart or your equal, maybe this rudeness would have been tolerable, Mr. Knightley tells her, but “she is poor; she has sunk from the comforts she was born to; and, if she live to old age, must probably sink more. Her situation should secure your compassion. It was badly done, indeed!” I don’t give myself high marks on suffering fools. I’m not rude to those I consider foolish, but I strenuously and lamentably evade them. But I do see people who handle fools well. Many members of the clergy do, as do many great teachers. In my experience, Midwesterners are more likely to treat fools well. Natural politicians do so, too. Joe Biden is effective because he loves humanity in all its shapes and sizes. G.K. Chesterton had the best advice on suffering fools gladly. He put emphasis on the gladly. When you’re with fools, laugh with them and at them simultaneously: “An obvious instance is that of ordinary and happy marriage. A man and a woman cannot live together without having against each other a kind of everlasting joke. “Each has discovered that the other is a fool, but a great fool. This largeness, this grossness and gorgeousness of folly is the thing which we all find about those with whom we are in intimate contact; and it is the one enduring basis of affection, and even of respect.”

Sequim battles Knights tonight PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM — The Sequim boys basketball team has two crucial home games this week that should change the landscape at the top of the Olympic League standings. Bremerton, tied at second with the Wolves, storms into Sequim tonight to end the first round of league play, and then Olympic — undefeated and currently No. 1 in league — visits Sequim on Friday night to start second-round action. The Wolves, 6-1 in league and 8-3 overall, is coming off a successful showing at the prestigious Foothill Holiday Classic tournament in Las Vegas last week. Sequim won two of three games against some of the better prep teams in the West. The Wolves beat Valhalia of El Cajon, Calif., 57-45, and Bonanza, Nev., 52-46, while losing only to Class 5A powerhouse Abraham Lincoln of Denver, 67-49. That tourney test couldn’t have come at a better time as the 2A Wolves embark on their toughest league stretch this week. The teams Sequim played in Las Vegas had the same look and did the same defensive schemes that the Wolves can expect from Bremerton and Olympic, Sequim coach Greg Glasser said. “In Las Vegas, they pressured us in full court and tried to trap us in the half-court, the same things that Bremerton and Olympic do,” he said. Bremerton, 6-1 in league and 8-3 overall — identical to Sequim’s record — brings a team with some size and a lot of speed to Sequim tonight at 7. The Knights’ speed is a bigger issue than their size, Glasser said. “Their quickness gives teams some fits,” he said.
A foul mood The Knights, who will be coming to the North Olympic Peninsula in a bad mood after losing 81-74 to Olympic and getting knocked out of a tie for first place just before the holiday break Dec. 21, likes to press teams and uses the 2-3 zone very effectively. Glasser is hoping the Las Vegas experience will help the Wolves against the two teams challenging them for the league championship. None of the teams in Las Vegas were pushovers, and they were all in larger classifications than Sequim’s 2A level. All of the schools the Wolves played had student enrollment of at least 2,000, Glasser said. And one school had a student count of 2,800, the size of a small town. That is more than twice the size of Sequim’s current enrollment of 937. On Friday night at 7 the Wolves will be looking for revenge against Olympic, which beat them by three points at Olympic in the first game of league play several weeks ago. The Trojans are 7-0 in league and 9-2 overall. Sequim will counter the Knights and Trojans with two of the better players in the league in senior leaders Jayson Brocklesby and Gabe Carter. Brocklesby is averaging just over 17 points per game while Carter is averaging 14. And the best news of all is that the Wolves currently are all healthy and raring to go. “It’s unusual for this time of year, but our kids are pretty healthy,” Glasser said. “They are not getting the illnesses that are going around.”

Washington offensive tackle Trent Williams, right, slaps and pushes Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman at the end of Sunday’s game. But this wasn’t the worst news for the Seahawks who learned Monday that defensive end Chris Clemons is lost to the rest of the postseason.
Redskins slap back Frustration rules at end; Clemons lost to injury BY ERIC D. WILLIAMS MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Seattle will limp into Atlanta on Sunday in the second round of the playoffs when it learned Monday that Chris Clemons will miss the rest of the playoffs because of a knee injury against Washington. Meanwhile, Seattle’s star cornerback was pushed around a little after Sunday’s game against the Redskins. Richard Sherman likes to talk. Apparently, Washington offensive tackle Trent Williams didn’t want to listen. After Seattle’s win over the Washington Redskins — a chippy game that included trash talking from both teams leading up to the contest, Williams approached Sherman at midfield. But instead of the customary handshake, Williams, who kept his helmet on, greeted Sherman

I’m not scared of him.” Williams followed through with his threat, hitting Sherman with an open hand before a Seahawks team employee stepped in to break things up.

Seahawks’ injuries The Seahawks will be without Clemons for the remainder of the playoffs. The team’s sack leader suffered a left knee injury in the second half and did not return. The league’s web site reported that Clemons suffered an ACL tear. Also, Seattle coach Pete Carroll said that placekicker Steven Hauschka suffered a calf injury during the game that limited him to just field goal attempts, with punter Jon Ryan taking over kickoff duties. “You could see him limping out there,” Carroll said. “But he made good kicks out there when we needed him.” TURN

Wrestling Rainshadow tournament SEQUIM — North Mason won the team title but Sequim, Port Townsend and Port Angeles all fared well at the popular Rainshadow tournament last weekend. The Wolves had 10 wrestlers place in the top four, including two champions, while the Redskins and Roughriders had nine place each.
trated,” Sherman said. “If you lose, your season is over. You want to keep advancing. It was a frustration play — I guess is what you can call it. “But you never kind of want to be involved in that. I wasn’t looking for anything. I was trying to shake hands, and that’s how it happens sometimes.” Sherman finished without a tackle, as Washington stayed away from his side of the field most of the day. Williams apologized in the locker room while talking with reporters. “Just high emotions, man, and you know, I let them get the best of me,” Williams said. “It’s nobody’s fault but mine. I got to calm down a little bit. “It is just when you lose a game like this with high intensity, you are on edge and I reacted in an immature manner. “I am taught better than that, just got to be better. It takes a big man to walk away and next time I just have to be a bigger man.” Meanwhile, Seattle fullback Michael Robinson and Atlanta cornerback DeAngelo Hall smoothed things over after a heated exchange last season at

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — The Atlanta Falcons have more than home-field advantage to help their chances against Seattle in the playoffs. The Falcons also have history on their side. The Seahawks won their wild-card game at Washington and will have to make another cross-country trip for Sunday’s game at Atlanta. According to STATS LLC, the 1989 Los Angeles Rams are the only West Coast team to win back-to-back postseason games on the East Coast — at Philadelphia and the New York Giants. STATS’ research included teams from Seattle, Oakland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego and Arizona. Seattle is trying to become the second team to pull off the feat. Falcons offensive tackle Tyson Clabo downplayed the Seahawks’ repeat trip across the nation. “It’s not like they’re going to be going to the moon or anything,” Clabo said Monday. “They have a schedule they follow when they travel and I’m
sure they’re going to keep it the same.” The Falcons claimed the top seed in the NFC with a 13-3 record. They also held the top seed two years ago before losing at home to eventual Super Bowl champion Green Bay. They lost last year’s playoff opener at the Giants to fall to 0-3 in the postseason under coach Mike Smith. Smith said he adjusted last week’s practice schedule based upon lessons learned in the bye week two years ago. Players had more time off before the loss to the Packers. “We did it a little bit different this time,” Smith said. “We worked a little bit longer. “I think one of the things we had to do was to get some work done between playing games. We needed to work on some things fundamentally that we didn’t do well at the end of the season.” Fundamentals were emphasized in four practices Wednesday through Saturday. The team was off Sunday and met Monday morning for their first briefing on the Seahawks. “I think if you do it the same and you didn’t get the results you want, that’s probably not the right way to approach it,” Smith said.

NHL says 48-game season likely Players start informal practices after talks end BY LARRY LAGE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
The NHL appears headed toward a 48-game season for the second time in two decades. â€œI think 48 is most likely at this point, unless the players can expedite their ratification process,â€? NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly wrote in an email Monday to The Associated Press. The NHL shortened its 82-game slate to 48 games during the 1994-95 season after a 103-day lockout. A 301-day lockout in 2004-2005 made the NHL the first major North American professional sports league to lose an entire season. When the framework of a new collective bargaining agreement was agreed to Sunday morning â€” after 16 hours of negotiations â€” there was some talk of having a 50-game season start later this month. The NHL and the playersâ€™ association are working on a memorandum of understanding, which could be completed soon, then voted on by team owners and players. The league has circulated a memo to teams telling them to be ready to play by Jan. 19, the date the shortened season is expected to start. â€œAs we prepare for the
season opener, I want to apologize to all Blues fans, especially our season ticket holders, suite holders, and sponsors,â€? St. Louis Blues owner Tom Stillman said in a statement released by the team. â€œWe share in your disappointment and frustration about the lockout.â€? Los Angeles Kings forward Kevin Westgarth, who was a part of the union negotiating team for much of the more than 100-day lockout, expects the NHLPA to conduct a conference call to explain and answer questions about the new CBA before players vote on it online. â€œOf course the league will say if the players hurry up, we can play more games, but thereâ€™s a reality to consider as well,â€? Westgarth said in a telephone interview Monday from Raleigh, N.C., where he skated informally with some Carolina Hurricanes. â€œBut the first step is for the people who are good with words to get on paper what both sides agreed to. â€œThen, we have to get guys â€” who are scattered all over the world â€” to understand the agreement before we can start voting.â€? Some NHL players â€” including Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin â€” went overseas during the lockout. Ovechkin has been play-
ing for his hometown Dynamo Moscow in the Kontinental Hockey League, but plans to be back in the United States soon. â€œAlex is returning early this week,â€? Ovechkinâ€™s IMG agent, David Abrutyn, told AP. Players â€” teammates and opponents â€” who stayed in North America have been getting together for months to skate, conduct on-ice drills and work out on their own to stay in relatively good shape.
Pittsburgh ice rink Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby and nearly a dozen teammates worked out at a suburban Pittsburgh ice rink Monday. For a change, Crosby and the rest of the NHL players knew games will be played after negotiators for both sides â€” and an outside mediator â€” found a way to revive a sport desperate to regain momentum and boost its prominence. The league and its union agreed to the framework of a 10-year labor contract, ending a bitter dispute that wiped out a large part of the hockey season for the third time in less than two decades. On the 113th day of the lockout and five days before the leagueâ€™s deadline for a deal, the bleary-eyed sides held a 6 a.m. Sunday news conference to announce there would be a season after all. The lockout could wipe out perhaps $1 billion in revenue this season because

The NHLâ€™s revenue of $3.3 billion last season lagged well behind the NFL
($9 billion), Major League Baseball ($7.5 billion) and the NBA ($5 billion). The new deal will lower the hockey playersâ€™ percentage from 57 to 50 after own-
ers originally had proposed the players get 46 percent. This was the third lockout among the major U.S. sports in a period of just over a year.

The playoffs losses have raised the pressure on Smith and the Falcons to end the drought, even if the coach insists his approach will not change. â€œTo me itâ€™s no different than any other game,â€? Smith said. â€œItâ€™s 100 percent on our football team to go out and play our best, whether itâ€™s a
