Search for fisherman called off Commercial vessel sinks Friday; crew member is presumed dead BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
LAPUSH â€” Coast Guard rescue crews have called off the search for a commercial fisherman missing after the fishing
boat Maverick sank off LaPush Friday morning, a Coast Guard spokesman said Saturday. A helicopter based at Coast Guard Air Station/Sector Field Office Port Angeles on Ediz Hook conducted the last search for the
missing man, identified as 32-year-old Kelly Dickerson, on Saturday, said Petty Officer Nathan Bradshaw, Coast Guard spokesman in Seattle. Based on the circumstances of the sinking and the amount of time the man has been in the water, Coast Guard officials are considering Dickerson deceased, Bradshaw said. His father, 66-year-old Darby

Dickerson of Port Angeles â€” the owner of the Maverick â€” survived, along with fellow crew members Dennis Vendor and Will Oorstaga. The 40-foot commercial fishing vessel sank after a 4:30 a.m. collision with the 90-foot fishing vessel Viking Storm in calm seas but a heavy fog roughly 30 miles off LaPush, Bradshaw said.

The day FDR came to town 75 years ago today, history happened here EDITORâ€™S NOTE: The only visit to the North Olympic Peninsula by a sitting U.S. president happened 75 years ago today, when Franklin Delano Roosevelt led a motorcade through Port Angeles en route to Lake Crescent. Rooseveltâ€™s appearance was part of a West Coast trip that included visiting his grandchildren in Seattle and making a goodwill trip to Victoria. He came to view the Olympic National Forest and Mount Olympus National Monument that were part of a bill before Congress to create a national park. Peninsula Daily News history columnist Alice Alexander, a native of the Elwha Valley and author of several books about the Peninsula, researched and interviewed people who witnessed FDRâ€™s visit 75 years ago.

PORT ANGELES â€” Excitement radiated throughout Port Angeles as plans were formulated for the presidential visit. North Olympic Peninsula residents, isolated from metropolitan areas, did not often get to see celebrities in those days. Many people didnâ€™t even have cars and never left the Olympic Peninsula. Franklin Delano Rooseveltâ€™s presidential party arrived in Port Angeles shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 30, 1937, aboard the Navy destroyer USS Phelps, coming from Victoria. The ship docked where the Port Angeles Boat Haven is now located. The motorcade left Marine Drive with the president riding in a big yellow Seattle police car. Port Angeles City Patrolman L.W.

â€œNickâ€? Carder led the way for the presidentâ€™s car. Mayor Ralph Davis rode with the president through downtown to the Clallam County Courthouse. Area schools had been dismissed early. Buses brought rural students into town to see the president. An estimated 3,000 schoolchildren were assembled on the courthouse lawn
awaiting the motorcade. It carried President Roosevelt, his son James, daughter Anna and their families, and Cabinet and staff members. Just as the presidentâ€™s car came in sight, the courthouse clock tolled 6 p.m. Stormy weather had delayed his arrival, so the crowd of 5,000 to 7,000 people had waited for several hours.
A member of the band That did not dampen the excitement, recalled Ron Bayton, a member of the Roosevelt (Port Angeles) High School band, whose members lined Lincoln Street to play the national anthem. TURN TO FDR/A8

Burglaries are bugging rural residents Monroe Road being targeted BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Joe Cammack and his neighbors in the Mount Pleasant-Monroe Road area are getting fed up. They said there has been a
spike in burglaries in their quiet, rural locale southeast of Port Angeles. As recently as Monday, Cammackâ€™s house-sitter spotted a car Cammack with its door open and returned a half-hour later to find Clallam County sher-
iffâ€™s deputies and Border Patrol agents with flashlights chasing down a suspect near Roundtree and Monroe roads, he said. Cammack said five or six residential burglaries have taken place recently. â€œThe frustrating part is nothing really happens to these guys,â€? said Cammack, who owns Jimâ€™s Pharmacy in Port Angeles. â€œThey catch them, and they get bailed out of jail 48 hours later.â€? As a result, criminals are â€œright
back to their same old games again within a week,â€? Cammack said. â€œWe need to find something short of killing them to deter their behavior,â€? he said. Clallam County Sheriff Bill Benedict shares Cammackâ€™s frustration. He said property crime does not rise to the same level as violent crime in the legal system, making it easier for burglars to bail out of jail.
â€œIf it were up to me, burglary would be an extremely high crime,â€? Benedict said. Benedict could not provide statistics that show an increase in burglaries east of Port Angeles but said that a crime analysis that breaks down burglaries by specific category is in the works. Anecdotally, Benedict noted that property crime has increased gradually countywide over the past year. TURN

During his three-decade tenure, the newspaper won 31 Pulitzer Prizes, published the Pentagon Papers and won a libel case victory in New York Times vs. Sullivan that established important First Amendment protections for the press. His son and current Times publisher Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr. said in a statement that his father’s refusal to back down in the paper’s freespeech battles “helped to
expand access to critical information and to prevent government censorship and intimidation.” In an era of declining newspaper readership, the Times’ weekday circulation climbed from 714,000 when Mr. Sulzberger became publisher in 1963 to 1.1 million upon his retirement as publisher in 1992. Over the same period, the annual revenues of the Times’ corporate parent rose from $100 million to $1.7 billion. Mr. Sulzberger was the only grandson of Adolph S. Ochs, the son of Bavarian immigrants who took over the Times in 1896 and built it into the nation’s most influential newspaper.

A3 Briefly: Nation L.A. is hoping to avert a new Carmageddon LOS ANGELES — Traffic was light around Los Angeles hours after the start of Carmageddon II, and transportation officials were hoping it would stay that way until a bridge is demolished before today’s morning rush hour. Construction crews began work early Saturday to take down a portion of the Mulholland Drive bridge along Interstate 405, one of the nation’s busiest freeways. The bridge and its pillars will eventually be replaced so that the freeway can be widened to include a new carpool lane. “So far, so good,” said Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman Dave Sotero. “Drivers are staying away from the demolition area.” During a similar closure last year, commuters stayed away in droves, and crews finished the first phase of the work early.

New Supreme Court session begins today Same-sex marriage, voting rights, affirmative action all on docket THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — When last we saw the chief justice of the United States on the bench, John Roberts was joining with the Supreme Court’s liberals in an unlikely lineup that upheld President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Progressives applauded Roberts’ statesmanship. Conservatives uttered cries of betrayal. Today, the Supreme Court embarks on a new term that could be as consequential as the last one, with the prospect for major rulings about affirmative action, gay marriage and voting rights. Many on both left and right expect Roberts to return to side with the conservative justices in the new term’s big cases. If they’re right, the spotlight will be back on Justice Anthony Kennedy, whose vote typically is decisive in cases
that otherwise split the court’s liberals and conservatives. But Roberts will be watched closely for fresh signs that he’s becoming less Roberts predictable. The first piece of evidence could be in the court’s consideration of the University of Texas’ already-limited use of race to help fill its incoming freshman classes. The case is set to come before the court Oct. 10.
Racial preferences The outcome could further limit or even end the use of racial preferences in college admissions. Roberts has expressed contempt for the use of race in legislative districts, calling it “a sordid
business, this divvying us up by race,” and in assigning students to public schools, saying that “the way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.” The written arguments submitted by both sides in the Texas case leave little doubt that Kennedy, not Roberts, holds the prized vote. The challengers of the Texas program and the university itself cite Kennedy’s prior writings on affirmative action. The court also is expected to confront gay marriage. Several cases seek to guarantee federal benefits for legally married samesex couples. A provision of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act deprives same-sex couples of a range of federal benefits available to heterosexual couples. A separate appeal asks the justices to sustain California’s Proposition 8, the amendment to the state constitution that outlawed gay marriage in the nation’s largest state. Federal courts in California have struck down the amendment.
Presidential candidates gird for debate set for Wednesday THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Barack Obama may have momentum on his side, but he’s still struggling to revive the passion that propelled him to the White House. Mitt Romney is grasping for a chance to reboot his campaign after a disastrous September. The fierce and determined competitors in the tight race have a specific mission for the three debates, the first of which is Wednesday night in Denver. Obama, no longer the fresh face of 2008, must convince skeptical Americans that he can accomplish in a second term what he couldn’t in his first, restoring
the economy to full health. Romney, anxious to keep the race from slipping away, needs to instill confidence that he is a credible and trusted alternative to the president, with a better plan for strengthening the economy. “The burden in many ways is heavier on Romney,” said Wayne Fields, a professor at Washington University in St. Louis who specializes in political rhetoric. “What we see right now is an uncertainty about whether he’s ready for the job.” For all the hundreds of campaign appearances, thousands of political ads and billions of dollars invested in the race, this is a singular moment in the contest.
Upward of 50 million people are expected to watch each of the debates, drawing the largest political audience of the year. Forty-one percent of Americans reported watching all of the 2008 debates, and 80 percent said they saw at least a bit, according to a Pew Research Center poll. Wednesday’s Denver debate, 90 minutes devoted to domestic policy, airs live at 6 p.m. Pacific time. The two men will be seated side by side in elevated director’s chairs. Romney and Obama debate again Oct. 16 in Hempstead, N.Y., and Oct. 22 in Boca Raton, Fla. (See “clip and save” schedule for the debates, Page D2 today.)

A MAN FATALLY shot himself in the head Friday on live national television at the end of a high-speed carjacking chase that began in Phoenix and ended about 90 minutes later. Fox News covered the chase that began about midday. At the chase’s end, the man driving a four-door sedan stopped, ran down a dirt road and put a gun to his head and fired. He was declared dead at the scene and hasn’t been identified, said Sgt. Tommy Thompson of the Phoenix police. Fox News anchor Shepard Smith said the video was supposed to be on a 10-second delay from airing if something went awry: “We really messed up.”

His attorney, Cristiana Arru, raised a series of objections at the start of the hearing, only some of which were accepted by the court. One concerned two jailhouse conversations Gabriele had with the head of the Vatican police force without his lawyers present. The judges declared both inadmissible.

It’s an apt symbol of Putin’s relentless drive to roll back even the modest liberal legacy left behind by his protege, who made timid attempts at modernization as president but never emerged from the shadow of his patron. One by one, each of Medvedev’s reforms — from decriminalizing slander to purging the boards of state-run companies of government officials — has been swept aside.

$25 billion to compensate 34,000 who lost homes to foreclosure PENINSULA DAILY NEWS NEWS SOURCES
OLYMPIA â€” About 34,000 Washington state borrowers who lost their homes to foreclosure soon will be receiving forms in the mail to claim their piece of the $25 billion national mortgage-servicer settlement. Borrowers who had their mortgages serviced by Ally/ GMAC, Bank of America, Citi, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo, and lost their homes between Jan. 1,
2008, and Dec. 31, 2011, may qualify for a one-time payment under the settlementâ€™s terms. (There was no immediate breakdown of how many of the borrowers live in Jefferson or Clallam counties.) Nationwide, about $1.5 billion of the settlement will go to pay about 2 million borrowers whose homes were taken through foreclosure. The average payment nationally will be $750. â€œThis payment is partial
ing that they are providing settlement-related assistance,â€? McKenna said. The bulk of the settlement is for giving loan modifications to borrowers who still live in their homes and owe more than the house is worth. Banks are contacting borrowers to offer them principal reductions, lower interest rates and other types of modifications, officials said. Earlier this month, the state Attorney Generalâ€™s Office announced plans to award $45 million that was allocated under the national settlement for foreclosurerelief programs.

Borrowers will be mailed payments in mid-2013, McKenna said. The final amount of the payment will depend on how many eligible borrowers return their claim forms on time. McKenna urged borrowers to be wary of scam artists and call his office if they come across one. â€œDo not provide personal information or pay anyone who calls or emails claim-
The money was awarded in three-year grants, including: â– About $13 million to the Legal Foundation of Washington for legal aid to low- and moderate-income households facing or affected by foreclosure. â– About $6.2 million for second mortgages to help delinquent borrowers get current on their first mortgage and qualify for a loan modification. â– About $3.9 million to the city of Tacoma and the Tacoma Redevelopment Authority to combat blight in neighborhoods and provide down-payment assistance to buyers of foreclosed houses.
Port Angeles fugitive charged, still at large BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” A Port Angeles fugitive who allegedly shot at his roommateâ€™s on-again, off-again boyfriend has been formally charged with attempted first-degree murder and unlawful possession of a firearm. Mario W. Hackney, 45, remained at large early Saturday. He was charged Thursday. Authorities said he shot at a man who was fleeing in a pickup truck â€” hitting the windshield but missing the intended victim â€” outside of a residence on the 200 block of Cameron Road near Port Angeles on Sept. 20. Clallam County sheriffâ€™s deputies have been checking locations where Hackney is known to frequent. Sheriff Bill Benedict said

he believes that someone who k n o w s Hackney eventually will spot him and provide his Hackney location. â€œI think heâ€™s going to be showing up pretty soon,â€? he said. Hackney, who also goes by Don Lennon, is considered armed and dangerous. He is 5-foot-9, 190 pounds with several tattoos on both arms and his chest.

said Ron Cameron, chief criminal deputy in the Sheriffâ€™s Office, on Saturday. â€œThereâ€™s nothing to suggest he is in the area, nor do I have anything to suggest he left the area.â€? Hackney was featured Friday on Washingtonâ€™s Most Wanted on KCPQ. His case was still the lead item Saturday on the Washingtonâ€™s Most Wanted website, www. q13fox.com/mostwanted. According to court documents, the man whom Hackney shot at had arrived at the residence to pick up his on-and-off-again girlfriend at about 11 a.m. He told Clallam County Sheriffâ€™s Detective Stacy Sampson that he knows Hackney and â€œdoes not get alongâ€? with him. The man told investigators that he called his girlfriend on the phone, drove to her residence to pick her up and revved up the engine of
his pickup to let her know he had arrived. When he stepped out of his truck, the woman â€œbegan screaming at him to leave and to get out of there,â€? Sampson wrote in the certification for probable cause. The man said he saw Hackney and a â€œcouple of other people about 40 feet away coming toward him and Mario [Hackney] was holding what looked like a sawed-off 20 gauge shotgun,â€? Sampson wrote.
â€˜No doubt in his mindâ€™ After ducking to avoid the buckshot, the man looked up and saw Hackney reloading the gun. He told investigators he had â€œno doubt in his mind that Mario was going to shoot and kill him.â€? In his haste to flee, he backed the pickup into a ditch, authorities said, and while running, he fell, injur-

His white minivan was spotted three days later in Diamond Point. Sheriffâ€™s deputies intercepted the Nissan Quest near Blyn around midnight and chased it about 4 miles up Woods Road, where it crashed into an embankment.

Four candidates to be queried by Sequim council One of original hopefuls is out because of where he resides BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM â€” One of the original five City Council candidates to be interviewed Monday night for a vacant seat on the council is no longer in contention after finding out he does not live within the city limit. Cliff Silliman said a city official told him Friday he doesnâ€™t live in the city of Sequim when Silliman called to ask why he had not yet been sent a list of questions that all the other candidates had received. â€œMy streetâ€™s in the city limits. My next-door neighbor is in the city limits. I am not,â€? Silliman said Saturday. Mayor Ken Hays confirmed that the list of candidates for appointment to the seat left vacant by Bill Huizingaâ€™s resignation in July is now down to four. They are: â– Eileen Cummings, owner of EMC Realty Inc. in Sequim. â– Ron Fairclough, who ran unsuccessfully for Councilwoman Laura Duboisâ€™s seat in last yearâ€™s primary election. He once worked as a dental technician at the Sequim Laboratory of Dental Arts. â– Dennis Smith of Sequim. â– Genaveve Starr, a 43-year Sequim resident who worked as administrative assistant for Peninsula College for four years until she retired.
Interviews at 6 p.m. The six Sequim City Council members will begin interviewing the candidates at 6 p.m. Monday in a public session at the Sequim Transit Center, 190 W.

Hoh River Trust completes culvert removal near Forks
OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK â€” Traffic will be reduced to one-lane along a section of U.S. Highway 101 along Lake Crescent as workers begin rock scaling and bolting a cliff face Monday, Oct. 8. Drivers can expect delays of up to 30 minutes in the area of the cliff face, which is at Milepost 228 just west of Sledgehammer Point. The work is scheduled for completion Nov. 2. Rock scaling and bolting is done periodically in the area to reinforce the cliff face and lessen the chance of rock falling onto the road, Olympic National Park said. Flaggers and pilot cars will guide motorists through the active construction areas on weekdays; temporary traffic signals will be installed for weekend and evening travel. Oversized vehicles are encouraged to use an alternate route.

Silliman said he has briefly discussed with his wife the possibility of seeking annexation into the city or moving, though even if he moved tomorrow, he would have to be a city resident for at least a year before being eligible. Each candidate has been given a list of questions council members will ask so they can prepare their answers, Hays said. Huizinga left his spot on the council vacant July 7 when he resigned after saying he had moved outside of the city limit.

Commissioners to decide next yearâ€™s furlough days Tuesday PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Most Clallam County Courthouse offices will be closed Monday for the 12th of 16 furlough days the county implemented this year. The only exceptions to the closure are the courts and the jail. Offices on the main floor of the Clallam County Courthouse at 223 E. Fourth St. in Port Angeles will be closed. The public can conduct court business by entering the south doors and proceeding upstairs. Sheriffâ€™s deputies will be on regular patrols, but the sheriffâ€™s administrative office will be closed. The county implemented the unpaid leave days to help balance the budget. All of the furlough days are Mondays. The remaining furlough dates are Oct. 8, Nov. 19, Dec. 24 and Dec. 31. The back-to-back furlough Mondays prompted
county Auditor Patty Rosand to encourage the public to purchase their licence tabs and register to vote online. â€œExpect long lines in licensing on Tuesday if you choose to come into the Auditorâ€™s Office,â€? Rosand said. â€œYou can buy your license tabs online at www. dol.wa.gov, and we will mail them to you the next business day, or you can pick them up in our office. â€œVoter registration can be done online at www.clallam.net/elections.â€? The last day to register to vote by mail is Saturday. The last day to register online is Oct. 8. Meanwhile, the three commissioners Tuesday will consider a resolution designating 16 furlough days for 2013. The proposed furlough dates, all Mondays, are Jan. 14, Jan. 28, March 11, March 25, April 1, April 8, June 24, July 1, July 15, July 22, Aug. 26, Sept. 16, Sept. 23, Nov. 18, Dec. 23 and Dec. 30.
OLYMPIC NATIONAL FOREST â€” After months of harassing wild mountain goats in Olympic National Forest, rangers will reopen Monday a popular hiking trail northwest of Hoodsport that had been closed because of overly assertive members of the horned, shaggy species. And hikers on the Mount Ellinor Trail are being told: Go ahead and throw rocks at the animals. Just donâ€™t feed them. Forest Service rangers will be on hand for the reopening of both the upper and lower portions of Mount Ellinor Trail No. 812 in Olympic National Forest on Monday, said Donna Nemeth, the public affairs officer for the national forest. Both sections of the trail had been closed since July 3 after four separate groups of hikers reported numerous mountain goats doggedly approaching them in a search for food and the salt humans expel when sweating, Nemeth said. The goats, up to 20 of which had been observed in the Mount Ellinor area, had become used to hikers feeding them and no longer had a natural aversion to humans,

tain goats at any time, even for pictures, and to urinate at least half the length of a football field away from the trail. The salt and minerals found in human urine can be as attractive to mountain goats as conventional food items, Nemeth explained. â€œThatâ€™s why weâ€™re asking people, when nature calls, to go well off the trail,â€? she said. If hikers see any goats while on the trail, they are encouraged to yell, wave clothing and throw rocks to keep the goats at least 50 yards away, Nemeth said. Itâ€™s also the hikerâ€™s responsibility, however, to stay at least 50 yards away from mountain goats, and all wildlife, while hiking anywhere in Olympic National Forest, Nemeth said. â€œIf people can initiate keeping a distance, that would be our preference,â€? she said. â€œKeep in mind that they are wild animals, and we need the public to help keep them wild.â€?
Nemeth said. The goats sought out hikers as easy sources of food, she said. Forest rangers closed the trail so wildlife biologists could focus on â€œmonitoring and aversive-conditioning actions.â€? Translation: yelling at goats, sounding loud horns to scare them away, throwing rocks and shooting them with paintball guns.
Scaring goats After biologist spent the summer making the mountain goats think twice about approaching humans, forest rangers believe the assertive goats in the Mount Ellinor area have redeveloped enough of an aversion to humans to allow the reopening of the popular 6.2-mile trail, Nemeth said. The trail could be closed again, however, if hikers continue to report aggressive goats approaching humans for food, she added. Additionally, biologists will continue the conditioning actions for an as-yetundetermined amount of time while the trail is opened. â€œ[Stopping the conditioning actions] is dependent on the goatsâ€™ behavior,â€? Nemeth said. With wildlife biologists and rangers doing their part, Nemeth said, the trail remaining open also is dependent on hikers. Rangers will remind hikers not to approach moun-

Search: Three rescued CONTINUED FROM A1 The crew aboard the 90-foot vessel was able to rescue three of the four crewmen on the Maverick. A Coast Guard motor lifeboat transferred the survivors, all described as being in good condition, from a Coast Guard cutter at the scene of the collision to the Coast Guard slip at the Quileute Harbor Marina in LaPush, Bradshaw said. Bradshaw said the Coast Guard is investigating the cause of the collision.
Warm embraces Rescued crew members were welcomed with warm embraces from a gathered crowd of people when they were dropped off at Quileute Harbor Marina at about 4 p.m. Friday, said Gene Harrison, assistant harbormaster at the marina. “I just stopped [the elder Dickerson] in his tracks and gave him a hug,” Harrison said. Harrison said one of the survivors, Vendor, is his brother-in-law. Harrison said the elder Dickerson has fished out of Quileute Harbor for years.

Anderson Lake will remain closed because of the skyrocketing level of anatoxin-a, though the state park around it will be open. just like the toxin-producing blue-green algae typically found in the countyâ€™s lakes: anabaena, aphanizomenon and microcystis, the latter of which also can create microcystin, which can cause skin irritation and nausea over the short term and liver damage if ingested over a long period of time. â€œWe donâ€™t have more information on [coelosphaerium] yet,â€? Dawson said, adding that no updates on the types of algae in Anderson Lake was available as of Friday. Algae, which are colonies of microscopic plants, can be spread between lakes by waterfowl or other means.
â€œWe donâ€™t really have an idea of why the anatoxin is increasing,â€? Dawson said. Algae could be getting better fed, with â€œmixingâ€? of the lake bringing nutrients up from the bottom to the surface. Lakes often â€œturn overâ€? in spring and fall because of changing temperatures, Dawson said. In summer, there is stratification, with the upper level warmer than the water below. In that upper level, algae may use up available nutrients and die off. But then, when temperatures cool, the water sinks, and the levels in the lake mix. It could also be that
there has been a change in the composition of the species of algae and one is more favored at this time of year, he said. â€œThere could be a whole number of factors,â€? Dawson said. â€œItâ€™s not well-understood why toxins appear sometimes and not other times.â€? Anderson Lake has a heavy bloom with scum. Only a trace of microcystin was found.
â€œWeâ€™re recommending people try to avoid contact with the scum,â€? Dawson said. â€œThose scums tend to concentrate the toxins.â€? A caution sign remains posted at Gibbs Lake south of Port Townsend as well as at Lake Leland, north of Quilcene, and Crocker Lake because the lakes contain the types of algae known to at times begin to produce poisons. No toxins were detected in Lake Leland, which has a medium bloom, with some scum near the dock. No sample was taken from Crocker Lake, which is near the U.S. Highway 101state Highway 104 junction. The lake has a light bloom. No toxic blue-green algae has been reported in Clallam County, where health officers do not test for toxins; instead, they visually monitor lakes for signs of algae bloom.

People lined the streets as the motorcade moved up Lincoln Street to Lauridsen Boulevard and onto the Olympic Highway, bearing the newly designated route numbers Primary State Highway 9 and U.S. Highway 101, toward Lake Crescent. Beverly Morris Davidson and her brother, David, waved small flags from their home on Boulevard, the familiar name for Lauridsen. Barbara MacNamarra and her sister, Phrania, watched from an embankment along Highway 101 near Herrick Road. After the presidential party arrived at Lake Crescent Tavern, everyone went to their rooms to freshen up, then met back at the innâ€™s large dining room.
Hanify recalled President Roosevelt saying: â€œMr. Mayor and my friends of Port Angeles: That sign is the appealingest appeal I have ever seen in my travels. â€œI am inclined to think it counts more to have the children want that park than all the rest of us put together. â€œSo, you boys and girls, I think you can count on my help in getting that national park, not only because we need it for us old people and you young people, but for a whole lot of young people who are going to come along in the next hundred years of America.â€?

advisers decided to wait until the sun came out to depart. Breakfast was Beardsley trout, caught by three young boys who were given special permission to fish Barnes Creek at Lake Crescent. One of those boys was Willis Welsh, son of Port Angeles Evening News Managing Editor William D. Welsh and his wife, Florence. Some people said the breakfast was at the nearby Rosemary Inn. Eleanor Tschemperle, age 18, was at her familyâ€™s home near Lake Crescent Tavern. That day, she met Interior Secretary Harold Ickes and his wife coming back from a hike down the Marymere Falls trail. The presidential party continued west along the Olympic Highway and met along the way with special events â€” including a treetopping exhibition by a young Forks logger, Fred Wilson, at LaPush Road.
Forks, Hoquiam Schoolchildren lined the streets of Forks and Hoquiam as the motorcade proceeded on the highway loop toward Olympia. Dick Davidson recalled being bused from Beaver School into Forks, where he joined other waiting students. Several people who are still living remember being in the courthouse crowd or waiting along the route to see President Roosevelt. Soon after Congress reconvened in 1938, it passed the long-attempted national park bill authored by U.S. Rep. Mon C. Wallgren, D-Everett, whose district included the North Olympic Peninsula. President Roosevelt signed it into law. Olympic National Park was a reality. The events 75 years ago beg the question: If a president were to visit Port Angeles today, would the visit generate as much excitement and fanfare as FDRâ€™s presidential trip of 1937?

To President Roosevelt: An Editorial and a Welcome
EDITOR’S NOTE: Port Angeles Evening News (predecessor to the Peninsula Daily News) published a front-page editorial on Sept. 21, 1937, by its editor, William D. “Billy” Welsh, in anticipation of the visit of President Franklin D. Roosevelt to the North Olympic Peninsula. As chronicled on today’s front page, Roosevelt’s momentous visit 75 years ago today — to survey lands proposed for a national park as part of a goodwill tour by rail and Navy ship through eight Western states and Victoria — remains the only time a seated president of the United States has visited the Peninsula. Welsh, who also wrote a column called “Welsh’s Rarebits” and used the pen name Rarebitter, set the stage for Roosevelt’s visit with this editorial:
favored and most happy people. You will be able to take home with you a story, Mr. President: a story that every industrial wheel in this seaside community is turning, a story that here on the North Olympic Peninsula there is yet room and recurring forest products sufficient to multiply the paper plants and payrolls of the United States without drain of natural resource, and with much profit to America and her people.
ort Angelans this day should be brimful of thankfulness that the president of these United States has accepted an invitation to dock at this port from a destroyer, visit with us awhile and spend the night at Lake Crescent on his circuit route around the Olympic Peninsula. To say the president will be most welcome is putting it rather mildly. We haven’t the strength of cheering numbers, out here in this seaside city of 12,000 souls. There won’t be ticker tape from the offices of Wall Street falling on his automobile like snow as he motors through our streets. There simply cannot be the pageantry that is possible in a great city. There is, however, a great deal of redblooded Americanism out here on the rim that will exhibit a real sincerity in its welcome to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It will be a sort of pioneer welcome from a people whose home latchstring is on the outside, and who will feel honored and long remember the day when a great man paused in his many duties to smile on our shores, our mountains, our wooded beauties and our people. There might be a pattern for all America in this very city of Port Angeles, Mr. President. For if ever employer and employee lived up to the high hopes you

nd you will visit Lake Crescent. Ah, Mr. President, you have touched our heart there. Lake Crescent, our Lady of Moods — with the blue of heaven in her waters, fairy woodlands on her hilly slopes, rich treasure beneath the topsoil of her first mountain ranges. The jewel of a hoped-for Mount Olympus National Park that will treasure a bit of our beauties so that those who come to us through the years may rejoice and be glad that someone looked ahead and planned. You will be greeted wholeheartedly all along with railroad tracks and sea lanes as you progress toward this city, Mr. President. But nowhere will folks be more glad to see you than in Port Angeles. It is a high honor to have a president come to his people, one we will treasure long after your automobile whisks away from Lake Crescent and bears you away from us. Now, Mr. President, you’ll pardon us. We must help set the house in order for you. The “welcome” rug is already on our portals. But all the folks here are kinda fluttery and happy in anticipation of your coming. They’re wondering just what may be the thing to do that will make you most happy. And the old Rarebitter is just as fluttery and happy as anyone over your visit.

Downtown parking Regarding the PDN article about the parking
problems downtown and how authorities try to flush out the shoppers with a $25 parking ticket after only two hours of parking [“PA Council Considers ‘Move-To-Evade’ Law,” Sept. 25 PDN], there are no real destination must-go-to stores for us downtown. We just need to go to the doctor’s office there and park for free. Then we go home or uptown to other stores, where there is free parking. I suggest that everyone do the same if they want to take time while shopping and not have to worry about rushing to move their car every two hours. My wife and I have lived in Port Angeles since 1978, and we believe in shopping locally. We enjoy a leisurely day downtown and going through the shops. I especially like looking in secondhand shops. Then we usually go have lunch or early dinner at one of the restaurants downtown. It takes quite a bit more time than two hours as we go only a few times each year. We haven’t done that in several years due to the problem of being rewarded for keeping our business local with a hefty fine on our windshield. As I stated before, there are plenty of fine stores uptown and in Sequim that offer free parking. Why continue to support local businesses that chase you away with parking tickets after only two hours? Why not have parking
meters instead that we can feed for as long as we’re there? We used to have that, didn’t we? What happened to good sense? Robert Wesley Heacock Jr., Port Angeles EDITOR’S NOTE: Parking meters were removed from downtown Port Angeles in the 1970s, Police Chief Terry Gallagher said.
Congress’ breaks New idea: Let’s just replace the Senate and House with toggle switches. They’re cheaper by millions per unit, they work more than 60 days a year, and the voting results will be the same. Your state and district elections will simply decide which position to set the toggle switch for the next two to six years, depending on whether it’s a Senate “switch” or a House “switch.” Our Congress just took a break after 12 grueling days of work in August and September, which followed a long break from June to August. They agreed not to work on anything until late in November, but then Thanksgiving would pretty much wipe that out. Does anyone remember what these people were hired to do? You can mark me in the column labeled “disgusted.” How about you? Dave Johnson, Sequim

PT takes note of resolution on mascotâ€™s name
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Education Board recommends discontinuing use of â€˜Redskinsâ€™ BY CHARLIE BERMANT
James-Wilson said the first committee meeting will take place sometime in November. â€œWe will have a group of people who can engage in a conversation regardless of their own point of view,â€? she said. â€œThey will take a look at these issues that have told our story over time.â€? Aaron Wyatt, the state boardâ€™s communications and partnerships director, said the impetus behind the resolution came from testimony received in May, as well as a ban of Native American mascots passed by Oregonâ€™s Board of Education that month.
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” A resolution by the state Board of Education recommending that school districts discontinue using mascots with Native American themes will be part of the ongoing debate about the use of â€œRedskinsâ€? as a team name for Port Townsend High School, but it will not change the process already in place. The board passed a resolution Wednesday encouraging districts to review and re-evaluate mascot policies, saying mascots related to Native Americans may have an adverse affect on students. â€œWe are in the business of educating students,â€? said Barnal Baca, state board member, in a prepared statement. â€œWe need to remove any barrier that will impede student success.â€? The use of â€œRedskinsâ€? by Port Townsend High School was the topic of several impassioned meetings over the summer, resulting in the School Board deciding to form a committee to discuss the issue at meetings during the school year, with the board making a decision at the end of the year. On Friday, PT School Board President Jennifer James-Wilson said the resolution would be â€œpart of the discussionâ€? during the meetings. â€œI am not surprised by this,â€? James-Wilson said. â€œI knew it was coming.â€? â€œI understand where they are coming from in an educational standpoint,â€? she said. â€œBut this isnâ€™t just a high school issue. Itâ€™s an identity issue for the community, and the feelings around this go deep.â€? During several meetings, the Port Townsend School Board heard differing viewpoints: that the name was an offensive racial slur that teaches the wrong message to students and, conversely, that it is a source of school pride that has nothing to do with race.

Eight schools affected
Board to meet monthly
Eight Oregon schools are affected by the decision and have five years to change their mascots. The Washington resolution is nonbinding because state law does not allow the board to impose an outright ban, Wyatt said. A similar resolution was passed in 1993. Wyatt said the board â€œdoes not have the dataâ€? as to how many schools would be affected. Aside from Port Townsend, the question will be addressed at the Reardan-Edwall School District near Spokane, where all the sports teams are called the â€œIndiansâ€? and about a quarter of the district population is Native American or Alaskan Native. Other Washington communities have had acrimonious battles over retiring a Native American mascot, including some districts close to Reardan. The Colville Indians asked the Colville High School Indians to find a new name in 1997, but theyâ€™re still the Indians. Ten schools have changed their mascotsâ€™ names in the past decade, including Eatonville Middle School, which went from the Warriors to the Eagles; Eisenhower Middle School in Everett, which went from the Warriors to the Patriots; and Issaquah High School, which changed from the Indians to the Eagles.
The board voted July 23 to create the committee that will meet once a month during the 2012-2013 school year before presenting a report of its findings for possible School Board action. James-Wilson said she had recruited five to seven members of the committee. Their names will be revealed at the Oct. 15 board meeting, scheduled for 6 p.m. at the library at Port Townsend High School, 1500 Van Ness St.

Big plays stop Riders Klahowya keeps PA winless by 19-8 score BY LEE HORTON
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Washington coach Steve Sarkisian and his team wait to run out of the tunnel before their game and historic upset of Stanford in Seattle.
Defense propels Dawgs to upset BY TIM BOOTH
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE — Justin Wilcox was plucked from Tennessee and brought to Washington to be the defensive coordinator charged with rebuilding a beleaguered Huskies defense that became a national punch line a season ago. Just a few weeks back, it still looked like a major work in progress when LSU overran the Huskies in a 41-3 rout down on the Bayou. But the amount of progress Wilcox was able to make between Sept. 8 and Thursday night was staggering as the Huskies shut down No. 8 Stanford in a 17-13 upset. Albeit with a different cast, the Cardinal steamrolled Washington (3-1, 1-0 Pac-12) to the tune of 446 yards rushing and 65 points a year ago. On Thursday, there was still a 65 in the Stanford stat column, but this time that was all the Huskies would allow on the ground. It was the fewest yards rushing produced by Stanford since the 2007 season — also the same year the Cardinal last went without an offensive touchdown.
Storming field Washington fans stormed out of the stands to celebrate the Huskies’ first win over a Top-10 foe since 2009 — at the very beginning of Steve Sarkisian’s tenure as the Huskies head coach. “The kids are believing, they’re dialing into what we’re trying to get down,” Sarkisian said. “That’s one of the biggest keys. Everybody knows X’s and O’s, obviously our guys are pretty bright, but they get the kids to believe, they’re excellent teachers, they communicate well and at the end of the day, guys are doing what they’re supposed to do and they tackle when they’re getting there.” Because Stanford (3-1, 1-1) was able to run so easily through the Huskies defense a season ago, what Wilcox and his defense accomplished was even more stunning. Yes, there was no Andrew Luck directing the Cardinal offense, and first-year quarterback Josh Nunes missed many throws that could have loosened up the Huskies defense. TURN
PORT ANGELES — The passing tandem of Jacob Sheets and Josh Ganowski hooked up for three touchdowns as Klahowya beat Port Angeles 19-8 in the Roughriders’ homecoming game Friday night at Civic Field. The win is the Eagles’ first Olympic League road victory since head coach Dan Ericson took over a team that had lost more than 20 consecutive games in 2011. “It was a big game for us,” Ericson said. “We’re technically back in the playoff race now. It feels good for our kids to come up and compete and be successful.” Sheets tossed touchdown passes of 45, 31 and 13 yards to Ganowski. The third scoring strike gave the Eagles a commanding 19-0 lead with 4:30 remaining in the game. Port Angeles responded with a passing display of its own. Larsson Chapman and Jonathan Newlin did their best Sheets-to-Ganowski impression on a drive that covered 77 yards — all but 4 yards were gained through the air — in just under three minutes.
Newlin gained 65 of those yards on three receptions. Running back Nathan Angevine finished the drive with a 3-yard touchdown run and Wesley Gidding ran in the two-point conversion to cut Klahowya’s lead to 19-8 with 1:34 remaining in the game. That was as far as the Port Angeles rally would go, though, as the Eagles recovered the Riders’ onside kick attempt on the ensuing kickoff. But in its desperate comeback attempt, the Port Angeles offense learned something about itself. “The thing that gets me most excited tonight is what I saw that we could do in that last drive,” Riders head coach Tom Wahl said. “We can pass the ball, and pass it effectively. “Passing the ball is really a lot about confidence. I think there’s been a lot of doubt — even in the coaches’ minds — this season so far, and we were forced to be in a situation where we had to do it, and the guys performed really well. “So, I’m really excited. Like I KEITH THORPE/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS told the guys, I’m ready to go Port Angeles running back Wesley Gidding is pulled [play again] right now.” TURN

PT runs over Vashon Redskins get 3rd victory PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — Jacob King’s big day helped Port Townsend to a Nisqually League victory and gave the Redskins a winning record less than a month after snapping a 20-game losing streak. The junior quarterback ran for three scores, including touchdown runs of 65 and 95 yards, and tossed one to tight end Skyler Coppenrath in Port Townsend’s 46-14 win over Vashon Island. The victory moves Port Townsend to 3-2 on the season and 2-1 in league play. “He had another tremendous game,” Redskins coach Nick Snyder said of King.
Football “He’s smart and a good leader. You always want a quarterback who is a leader, and he is.” Snyder emphasized that King isn’t the only player who deserves credit for Port Townsend’s resurgence. “It’s a team effort,” he said. “Everyone is buying in.” Snyder credited the offensive line with opening up holes for King and running backs Mitiku Little, Tim Russell and Matt Cain. Against Vashon Island (0-4, 0-5), Cain had 55- and 25-yard touchdown runs, and Russell ran for a score from 20 yards out. The Redskins travel to face Cascade Christian (No. 6 in 1A) at Sumner High School on Saturday night.

PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles won its first Olympic League volleyball match by holding off a spirited Port Townsend team. The Roughriders improved to 1-1 in league and 2-6 overall by defeating the Redskins 3-0 Thursday night. No game was easy as Port Angeles won 25-19, 25-20, 25-17. Port Townsend, which had not a match in the past two-plus years before this season, won two last week to improve to 1-1 in league and 2-7 overall. “We knew this was going to be a tough game,” Port Townsend coach Nettie Hawkins said. “We gave it most of our all, but there were aspects that were dragging that needed to be alive in order to pull off a win against Port Angeles. “Silly mistakes were the only things that left us hanging.”

Pass rush bolsters Seahawks defense THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE — Eight sacks in a single half may even be more than Pete Carroll envisioned for his young, explosive defense. But Monday night’s dominating performance against the high-octane Green Bay Packers offense showed the Seattle Seahawks defense may be among the league’s best. Seattle’s next opponent, the St. Louis Rams, game today, has allowed the second-most sacks of any team in the league with 12 through three games, tied with Cincinnati. Seattle’s secondary was already thought to be one of the best units in the league with three starters making trips to the Pro Bowl last season. But the prospect of coupling a hard-hitting, ballhawking secondary with a pass rush that could give offensive linemen fits is what Seattle’s coaches knew was needed for the whole group to take another step forward. A breakthrough performance from first-round pick Bruce Irvin on Monday
night may have been the final piece necessary for the Seahawks defense to take that step. Irvin sacked Aaron Rodgers twice in the first quarter and helped free up the rest of the Seahawks to tee off on the quarterback. Irvin proved too much for Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga to handle on his own, which forced the Packers to account for Irvin as well as Chris Clemons coming off the other edge. Green Bay adjusted by shifting the help to Irvin’s side and Clemons then took full advantage, getting to Rodgers four times in the second quarter alone. “When he got his first two sacks they had to bring the chip to his side to help him, to help the right tackle, so it made it a whole lot easier for me to actually be able to rush backside oneon-one,” Clemons said.
The pressure from the edges opened things up inside as well as Brandon Mebane picked up a pair of sacks, a third was negated by penalty, and Alan Branch

Seahawks rookie defensive end Bruce Irvin, right, sacks Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers during Monday’s game. got a pair of quarterback hits. It created matchup problems across the entire Green Bay offensive line and Seattle didn’t waste the opportunities. “They can’t just chip the ends,” Mebane said. “They’ve got to chip us or bring help or whatever. All of us can’t be blocked.”
Seattle got pressure on Rodgers in many different ways — a three-man rush, a four-man rush, varying personnel groups — but what they all had in common was the pressure was coming from Seattle’s front four. “We have a very good secondary and our linebackers are solid,” Clemons said. “That’s the thing about
us as a front four. We know what we have to do each and every week to allow our team to go. We are the engine to our defense. If we can get off and get to a very good start early in the game, it makes the game a whole lot easier for them so they don’t have to cover as long.”
Clemons’ 11 sacks a season ago were the only consistent pass rushing threat the Seahawks managed to get from their defensive line. Seattle was forced to bring additional pressure from the linebacker spots to try and affect the quarterback. It subsequently gave more space downfield for quarterbacks to find receivers. But by getting the pressure from up front, it gives an already impressive Seattle defense a formula to become even more dominant. “Any time you can get pressure with our four guys up front and keep another guy in coverage that really helps us,” defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said. Seattle has allowed the fewest points of any team in the league at just 13 points per game despite playing the high-powered offenses of Dallas and Green Bay. The Seahawks are fourth in total defense (272.3 yards per game) and sixth in sacks (10).
Riders: Offense unable to finish off drives CONTINUED FROM B1 The Riders also learned the hard way how dangerous a passing game can be by watching Klahowya produce nearly 300 yards in the air. Sheets was 15 of 23 with 278 yards in the game, with 10 of those completions and 220 of the yards going to Ganowski. Many of their connections came on what seemed like broken plays in which Sheets evaded the Port Angeles pass rush until Ganowski was able to get open.
“They do have a good connection. They have good rapport and good football smarts,” Ericson said. “Our offense is kind of like backyard football, and so they have a lot of freedom to kind of improvise a little bit. “It’s kind of like, ‘Hey, you just run down to the oak tree and turn around,’ and that kind of stuff. “It’s a good play for us with Jacob rolling to his right and Josh running around, getting open. “The less thinking we do, the better off [we are].” Those spontaneous plays
were responsible for a large majority of the Eagles’ offense. The Port Angeles defense put a lot of pressure on Sheets and kept Klahowya running back Latrell Simpson in check for most of the game. “Port Angeles played hard,” Ericson said. “Their front seven, especially their front four, are tough. I knew that on film, and they just worked our guys over up front.” Things could have gone worse for the Riders’ pass defense due to the absence of starting defensive backs Joey Barnes and Miki
Andrus, who missed the game with injuries. “These guys aren’t bad passing the ball, and we had to throw two new cornerbacks in there tonight,” Wahl said. “So, I’m actually really surprised that we didn’t get picked on worse there without Miki and Joey.” The Riders had also had one of their best offensive performances of the season with 324 yards of total offense, including 231 rushing yards. They came away emptyhanded on three drives into the red zone and had other
drives undone by fumbles for a Peninsula sweep on and penalties. Oct. 12 when they play at “I think we did every- Sequim. thing but put it in in the red zone tonight,” Wahl said.

Olympic 13, Sequim 7 SILVERDALE — The Wolves had chances but couldn’t pull off a fourthquarter comeback in Olympic League action Friday night at Silverdale Stadium. Sequim opened the final quarter with a 24-yard touchdown pass by Jack Wiker to Christian Miles that cut the Trojans’ lead to 13-7. The Wolves would have three more chances to score, but each time came away empty-handed. An interception by Miles gave Sequim the ball in the red zone, but the offense
was unable to convert on fourth-and-goal, giving the ball back to Olympic. The Wolves drove into Trojan territory in the final minutes, but ended up in a fourth-and-25 situation from the Olympic 37. Wiker’s pass was knocked down, thereby ending Sequim’s bid for its first win of the season. Olympic’s defense was especially tough in the two quarters, intercepting four passes before halftime. Next up for the Wolves (0-3, 0-5) is a home game against Kingston (2-1, 2-3) on Friday night. The Buccaneers are coming off their first league loss, 20-13 to North Mason. Olympic 13, Sequim 7
of them, Wilcox made the gamble of having more of a tackler and less of a coverage defender in the back. “A team like Stanford comes into town and you’re not going to sit there and play cover two all day,” Wilcox said. “You’re going to make them try and beat you throwing the ball outside and that’s what we tried to do.” Nunes, making the first road start of his career, simply couldn’t make the throws that were available. He wasn’t helped by a number of critical drops, none bigger than Ty Montgomery’s at the Washington 5 with just over 2 min-

utes remaining. But Nunes hit just 39 percent of his throws in the first half and Washington never had to respect the Cardinal’s passing game. Additionally, Washington won first down against Stanford’s run game. Last year on The Farm, the Cardinal rushed for 248 yards on 24 first-down rushes with four of 15 yards or longer, including runs of 45, 70 and 34 yards. On Thursday, Stanford gained a total of 37 yards rushing on first down on just 14 carries, with none of the carries going for longer than 7 yards and nine of them for less than 5 yards.

Storm loses 78-70 to Lynx THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
MINNEAPOLIS â€” With Seimone Augustus and Maya Moore around, Lindsay Whalenâ€™s focus generally isnâ€™t on scoring. That doesnâ€™t mean she canâ€™t. Whalen scored 20 points to lead the defending champion Minnesota Lynx in a 78-70 victory over the Seattle Storm in the opener of the Western Conference semifinals Friday night. â€œOf course we know theyâ€™re going to pay a lot of attention to Seimone and Maya, theyâ€™re great shooters and great players,â€? Whalen said. â€œWe all know we have to step it up and make plays as well.â€? Augustus scored 19 points, Moore added 16 and Rebekkah Brunson had 12 points and 11 rebounds for Minnesota. Whalen also tallied six assists and four rebounds. The Lynx shot 46 percent against a Storm team that held opponents to a league-low 39 percent this season, and hit 22 of 28 free throws â€” including 8 for 10 from Whalen. â€œThey have multiple weapons out there,â€? Seattle coach Brian Agler said. â€œIf you give too much attention to any one person, someone else will take advantage of it. Tonight, [Whalen] took advantage.â€? Rookie reserve Shekinna

NHL, players resume bargaining THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK â€” The NHL and the playersâ€™ association seemingly had a good day on Friday as they returned to the negotiating
table. It just wasnâ€™t good enough to bring the sides all that much closer to the end of the lockout. The league and the
union got back to bargaining for the first time since players were locked out on Sept. 16, and the sides discussed secondary issues without broaching the big
economic divide that really is the essence of the dispute. â€œIt was a good day,â€? NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said.
WNBA Playoffs Stricklen scored 13 points to lead the Storm. Katie Smith and Lauren Jackson added 12 points each, with all of but one of Jacksonâ€™s coming in the first half. Game 2 is tonight at Seattle.
In Olympics Jackson, a three-time WNBA MVP, didnâ€™t play in any of the teamsâ€™ four regular-season games as she was training with the Australian national team for the London Olympics. The Lynx won three of those matchups. Jackson played a seasonhigh 27 minutes, but it wasnâ€™t enough as Seattle shot just 39.7 percent from the floor and never led. Minnesota improved to 18-0 when holding opponents below 40 percent this season. â€œI didnâ€™t get the looks I was getting in the first half,â€? Jackson said. â€œThey changed their defense up. We definitely have to look at how weâ€™re going to combat that next game.â€? The Lynx, who went 16-1 at home in the regular season, turned the ball over nine times in the first 20 minutes and led just 33-27 despite Seattleâ€™s 29-percent shooting from the floor.
