Greg Munson, who has operated the state liquor store in Forks for nearly four decades, is contemplating retirement when liquor privatization takes effect next June.
State liquor store operators try to keep spirits up over initiative By Tom Callis and Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News
Greg Munson has run the state liquor store in Forks for nearly 40 years, but by June, he may be looking to retire. Munson, 65, will be one of the 325 liquor store managers in the state who will have to close up shop or apply for a liquor license by June 1 because of voter passage Tuesday of Initiative 1183, which gets the state out of the liquor business. “I didn’t think much of it two to three weeks ago,” he said. “It’s kind of a surprise.” The new law, which received 60 percent of the statewide vote and which takes effect June 1, allows retailers in stores of larger than 10,000 square feet to sell liquor. Liquor can also be sold at existing Keith Thorpe/Peninsula Daily News liquor store sites, which otherwise don’t Customer Joe Jester, standing outside the state-operated liquor store meet the minimum-size requirement. in Port Angeles, said passage of I-1183 will make liquor more Turn
PORT ANGELES — City Hall is taking a close look at its policy regarding “cashouts” for unused sick and vacation time after a state audit found that two department heads received up to $77,496 more than city policy allows.

Ziomkowski. com/budgetpa The city of Port Angeles allows employees to turn 80 hours of unused leave into cash and 40 hours to be transferred into their retirement plan. The state Auditor’s Office, in its annual review of the city released Monday, found that Ziomkowski and McKeen had a combined total of $36,595 in the past four years cashed or transferred to their retirement plans in excess of the combined maximum of 120 hours a year. Additionally, the report says another $40,901 in unused leave may have been inappropriately allocated to the two department heads. City policy allows unused leave of more than 960 hours to be transferred at 25 percent of its value. Both Ziomkowski and McKeen have accumulated leave over that amount and were compensated the full value for their unused leave.
No intentional wrongdoing The report found no evidence of intentional wrongdoing. Ziomkowski said they were following a long-standing practice that allows employees who are nearing retirement but haven’t fully participated in the city’s retirement plan to cash-out more unused leave than the written policy allows. That allows them, she said, to “catch up” with retirement and is a practice that has been ongoing for 20 years or more. “The auditor said the interpretation of the policy was not always consistent,” Ziomkowski said.

Cities may face trying some criminals Cash-strapped top prosecutor would shift duties from county By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Facing large budget cuts, the Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office is looking to leave it up to the cities to prosecute many of their drug and theft cases. The office is facing $196,932 in cuts next year, and as a result, Prosecuting Attorney Deb Kelly said her office could have to institute furlough days and lose a sup-
port staff member. Kelly said she wants to focus her limited resources on prosecuting crimes of violence against people. “Our focus is always going to be on the violent and sex crimes,” she said. To properly prosecute those cases, Kelly said, she is planning to shift drug and theft crimes that occur in the cities over to those municipalities to charge next

Tony Bennett visits New Orleans sites GRAMMY-WINNING JAZZ CROONER Tony Bennett is championing a rebuilding effort to help New Orleans residents displaced by Hurricane Katrina. At the site of the 101st and final house built by Project Home Again, the 85-year-old Bennett singer said Friday that bringing people home is important to protecting the culture and traditions of New Orleans. Said Bennett: “The gospel music, the music that started in churches here that created the art form of jazz — that needs to be preserved.” He looked on as a gospel choir clapped and swayed while singing “Oh Happy Day” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” to commemorate the project founded by his friends, New
York couple Leonard and Louise Riggio. After seeing Katrina’s devastation on their TV sets following the 2005 storm, the Riggios pledged to build homes for low- and middleincome families who were forced from their homes with little hope of returning.
Documentary crew The doctor convicted of causing Michael Jackson’s death was given perks by producers of a documentary on his case, a security guard who drove the physician to and from court daily said Friday. Louis Perry, head of Kadima Security Services, said producers often took Murray to boozeMurray filled dinners at upscale restaurants, paid for a 12-seat van outfitted with cameras and may have paid for the tailored suit Murray wore Monday when he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. Perry said he was never paid for his work as Murray’s driver and security detail, but the physician
gave him permission to talk to reporters about what he saw. “They paid to have full access,” Perry said. “They were shadowing his every move.” It remains unclear whether the perks Murray received run afoul of regulations intended to prevent convicts from profiting from their crime. Perry said he didn’t comply with a request to allow Murray to be filmed right before Monday’s verdict was read and refused to grant the filmmakers the right to use his likeness in the documentary titled “Michael Jackson and the Doctor: A Fatal Friendship.” The documentary has aired in England and premiered Friday night in the United States on MSNBC. Perry said he couldn’t estimate how much was spent on Murray during the six-week trial. He said he wasn’t sure if producers paid for Murray’s new wardrobe, but he was told to bring the doctor to an upscale department store where a tailor was waiting for him. The doctor received several suits, clothes and ties after that trip, he said.

EVELYN H. LAUDER, 75, a refugee of Nazi-occupied Europe who married into an illustrious family in the beauty business and became an ardent advocate for breast cancer awareness, raising millions for research, died Saturday at her home in Manhattan, N.Y. The cause was nongenetic ovarian cancer, said Alexandra Trower, a spokeswoman for the Estée Lauder Companies. As the wife of Leonard A. Lauder, the chairman emeritus of the Estée Lauder Cos., and as the daughter-in-law of the company’s formidable matriarch, Estée Lauder, Mrs. Lauder had to establish her own place in a family as complex as it was competitive. Mrs. Lauder frequently told the story of how, early in her marriage, she returned to the couple’s apartment to find that Estée had rearranged the furniture more to her liking. When Evelyn and Leonard were dating — it was only their second date — Estée implored her to stay and be the hostess for a birthday party she was giving her son. “So I stayed,” Mrs. Lauder said in an interview in 2008. “What could I do? She was like a steamroller.” Yet it was clear that Estée was crazy about the young woman, and soon after Evelyn’s marriage, in 1959, she joined the family cosmetics company, then a small enterprise, pitching in wherever she was needed. “I was very strong,” she

said. “Having had a childhood like the one I had, I was much more tough than a lot of people. I was one of the few people who spoke my mind to Estée.” Mrs. Lauder learned she had breast cancer in 1989 and soon became a strong voice on behalf of women’s health, though she was always reluctant to discuss her own condition. “My situation doesn’t really matter,” she told a reporter in 1995. She was a creator of the Pink Ribbon campaign, a worldwide symbol of breast health, and in 1993, she founded the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, which has raised more than $350 million. In 2007 she received a diagnosis of ovarian cancer, which developed independently of her breast cancer, Ms. Trower said.

organ failure, his wife, Nancy, said. The couple had lived for many years at Cremona, a 978-acre estate in Mechanicsville, Md., whose 40-odd buildings long groaned with paintings, prints and other work made covertly from the 1950s to the 1980s. That trove now forms the core of the Norton and Nancy Dodge Collection of Nonconformist Art From the Soviet Union, part of the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J.

Pro-Syrian regime protesters shout slogans against the Arab League during a protest in front the Qatar Embassy in Damascus on Saturday.
Arab League suspends Syria over killings CAIRO — In a surprisingly sharp move, the Arab League voted Saturday to suspend Syria over the country’s bloody crackdown on an eight-month uprising. The decision was a humiliating blow to a regime that prides itself as a bastion of Arab nationalism, but it was unlikely to immediately end a wave of violence. “We hope there will be a brave move from Syria to stop the violence and begin a real dialogue toward real reform,” Qatar’s Foreign Minister Hamad bin Jassim said. In Damascus, pro-regime demonstrators threw eggs and tomatoes at the Qatari Embassy to protest the vote.
The Arab League will monitor the situation and revisit the decision Wednesday.

People celebrate after Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi left the presidential palace at the end of a meeting with Italian President Giorgio Napolitano in Rome on Saturday.
Hopes high in Italy as Berlusconi quits post By Nicole Winfield The Associated Press
ROME — A chorus of Handel’s “Alleluia” rang out Saturday as Silvio Berlusconi resigned as Italian premier, ending a tumultuous 17-year political era and setting in motion a transition aimed at bringing the country back from the brink of economic crisis. Berlusconi stepped down amid jeers, cheers and heckles of “Buffoon” from thousands of people who packed downtown Rome to witness his government’s downfall after a stunning week of market turmoil that upended his defiant hold on power and threatened to tear apart the eurozone. Respected former European Commissioner Mario Monti remained the top choice to try to steer the country out of its debt woes as the head of a transitional government. But the job is Herculean, given the enormity of reforms required and Italy’s often-paralyzed parliament. President Giorgio Napolitano will hold consultations this morning with each of Italy’s main political forces before proceeding with the expected request that Monti try to form a new government.
Napolitano has scheduled back-to-back, 10-minute meetings all morning, indicating the talks won’t drag on and that by the open of markets Berlusconi Monday, Italy may well have charted a new political course. Late Saturday, Berlusconi’s party said it would support Monti, albeit with conditions. In front of Napolitano’s office, where Berlusconi handed in his resignation late Saturday, protesters uncorked sparkling wine and danced in a conga line, shouting “We’re free!” Several dozen singers and classical musicians — complete with music stands and chairs — performed Handel’s “Alleluia” to rejoice in the end of Berlusconi’s scandal-marred reign and welcome Monti into office. “I think he [Monti] is going to bring trust back to Italian people who are losing it, are a bit fed up with what’s going on and have lost the trust and the respect” they had for Berlusconi, said Sophie Duffort of France, who was in the piazza Saturday night.
Berlusconi supporters were also out in force, some singing the national anthem, but they were vastly outnumbered. Berlusconi’s resignation was set in motion after the Chamber of Deputies approved economic reforms demanded by the European Union, which include increasing the retirement age starting in 2026 but do nothing to open up Italy’s inflexible labor market. The Senate approved the legislation a day earlier and Napolitano signed it into law Saturday afternoon, paving the way for Berlusconi to leave office as he promised to do after losing his parliamentary majority earlier in the week. Berlusconi stood as lawmakers applauded him in the parliament chamber immediately after the vote. But outside, thousands of curiosity-seekers massing to witness his government’s final hours heckled him and his ministers. “Shame!” and “Get out!” they yelled, many toting “Bye Bye Silvio Party” posters as they marched through downtown Rome in a festive indication that for many Italians, like financial markets, the time had come for Berlusconi to go.
Obama in bull’s-eye for GOP foes; less consensus on Iran The Associated Press
SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Republican presidential hopefuls criticized President Barack Obama’s efforts to thwart Iran’s nuclear ambitions Saturday night but disagreed in campaign debate whether the United States would be justified in a pre-emptive military strike. “If we re-elect Barack Obama, Iran will have a nuclear weapon. And if you elect Mitt Romney, Iran will not have a nuclear weapon,” the former Massachusetts governor declared. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich quickly agreed, saying that if all other steps failed, “you have to take whatever steps are necessary” to prevent the Islamic regime from gaining a nuclear weapon. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas just as quickly disagreed with the idea that a president would order an
attack. He said if America’s security is threatened, the president must ask Congress for a formal declaration of war before taking military action. The question was the first in a 90-minute debate devoted to defense and foreign policy, an event that brought eight would-be commanders-in-chief together on a debate stage for the second time in less than a week. On the debate stage at Wofford College, the war in Afghanistan produced the same response as the question in Iran’s nuclear ambitions — unanimous criticism of the president, but differences among the Republicans seeking to take his place. Jon Huntsman, who served as Obama’s first ambassador to China, said it was time to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan, a land where their boots first touched the soil a decade ago. “I
say it’s time to come home. I say this nation has achieved its key objectives,” he said. But Romney and Texas Gov. Rick Perry said they would side with military commanders on the ground about when to withdraw troops. They criticized Obama for “telegraphing” the nation’s intentions. Still, Romney said he supports a withdrawal by the end of 2014, “other than a small footprint of support forces.” On waterboarding, Herman Cain and Rep. Michele Bachmann both said they would reinstate the technique designed to simulate drowning. Cain went one step further, adding that he would leave it up to military leaders — rather than their civilian superiors — to decide what forms of interrogation amount to torture, which he said he opposes.

World: Extremist Islam not in cards, interim leader says
World: Presidency posters used for pigsty; arrest made
MEXICO’S TOP CABINET secretary, Francisco Blake Mora, a key figure in Mexico’s battle with drug cartels, died Friday in a helicopter crash that President Felipe Calderon said was probably an accident. Blake Mora, 45, was the second interior minister, the No. 2 post in the government, to die in an air crash during Calderon’s administration. Despite some tendencies to suspect a hit on the top officials leading Calderon’s offensive against organized crime, the crash that killed Blake Mora and seven others may have had to do with bad weather. Policy is not exepected to change.
A CANADIAN TOURIST who was caught up in a family feud died of his wounds Saturday, an Egyptian security official said. Jeff Francois, 24, lived in Cairo and was an employee of the Institute of Canada. He was shot Wednesday when members of a feuding family opened fire on his car when his driver refused to stop at an illegal checkpoint in the town of al-Samata. Family feuds and violent revenge attacks are common in southern Egypt, where many families take the law into their own hands, refusing police intervention.
LIBYA WON’T TURN into an extremist Islamic country, its interim leader assured the European Union’s top diplomat Saturday, adding that the formation of a new government of experts is to be completed in the coming week. Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, chairman of the National Transitional Council, caused a stir in the West last month when he said Islamic Shariah law would be the main source of legislation in the new Libya and that tenets violating it would be nullified. He spoke at a news conference with EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.
UGANDAN POLICE ARRESTED a man Friday for “abusing the presidency” after he built a pigsty out of old election posters featuring President Yoweri Museveni’s face. The 35-year-old taxi dispatcher used the durable posters for the roof and walls and as plates for the pigs. The man said he did not know he was breaking the law. The posters were still on the streets of Kampala after February’s poll, won by longtime leader Museveni. A report by an international rights group says government-backed harassment and repression of critics are increasing in the East African nation.

Liquor: Eight stores now on Olympic Peninsula Continued from A1 There are eight stores now on the North Olympic Peninsula. The seven others are located in Clallam Bay, Port Angeles, Sequim, Port Townsend, Brinnon, Port Hadlock and Quilcene. Munson said he has not decided whether he will apply for a license, adding that he may decide to retire instead.
Port Hadlock: Uncertain Kathryn Debernardi, who has owned and oper ated a store in Port Had lock, said she is uncertain of her future and that of the store. “I’ve read the initiative several times, and there are still so many unanswered questions that I can’t even begin to work on a business plan,” she said. Tammy Hull, manager of the liquor store in Clallam Bay, also said it’s a “very good possibility” that she will seek a license to con tinue to stay in business. But she said she still has her reservations. “I’m not happy about it,” Hull said of the initiative Charlie Bermant/Peninsula Daily News passing. Jean Morris, who has managed the Quilcene Liquor Store for 36 years, is unsure about how the passage of Initiative 1183 “My issue about it is it’s will affect her. such a gray situation.”
Port Townsend Port Townsend’s liquor store manager, Dick Linga felter, said he didn’t know if he would seek a license. Jean Morris, manager of the store in Quilcene, was also unsure. Morris owns the build ing and would have to pur chase the inventory but said she would most likely return her current stock and develop an inventory more compatible with Quil cene’s tastes.
Currently, the state con trols what she sells, she said, and there are several liqueurs and high-end prod ucts that she would proba bly stop carrying. Morris said her custom ers’ tastes gravitate toward whiskey and vodka. Managers of the Port Angeles and Sequim stores declined to comment. The state said more than 900 state employees will lose their jobs as a result of
the initiative. But those aren’t the only jobs at risk. Puget Sound Transfer in Port Angeles will lose a third of its business when the law goes into effect, said manager Eric Flodstrom in an email. Flodstrom said the com pany distributes liquor to 48 stores from Gig Harbor to Clallam Bay and 12 stores in Seattle. “It is disheartening to have this hard work wiped away by a vote and no fault
a purchase at the Port Angeles liquor store. “I’m sorry for those who are going to lose their jobs but it’s great for the state,” he said, referring to the pos sibility of increased revenue with higher consumption. Costco, which has a loca tion in Sequim and threw $22 million into a campaign supporting the initiative, plans to carry it and so does Safeway, which has four locations in Clallam and Jefferson counties. Sheila Jones, Walmart
district manager for lallam, Mason, Grays C Harbor, Jefferson and Kit sap counties, said the large retailer has yet to announce a decision on whether to sell liquor.

PT library one of 3 stars in state By Charlie Bermant
the cost of relocating library inventory for the six months needed for the retrofit along with funds allocated for rental of the temporary space.
Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — A national trade magazine has singled out the Port Townsend Public Library as one of three “star libraries” in Washington state and among 262 top libraries nationwide. “This is great for us. It’s like the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval for libraries,” said library Director Theresa Percy. She received the news about Library Journal’s recognition of the library in its November issue as she and her staff prepare for a temporary move during a planned seismic retrofit of the library building. The Port Townsend Library was given a threestar rating. “It recognizes our ability to deliver services,” Percy said. “Even as we’ve had to cut back, the demand for library services has increased.”
National rating Library Journal’s fourth national rating of public libraries, the LJ Index of Public Library Service 2011, identified the top libraries out of 7,513 nationwide libraries using 2009 data, the journal said on its website at www.libraryjournal.com. Libraries were given rat-

Port Townsend Library Director Theresa Percy, far right, meets with staff members, from left, Keith Dorrock, Cris Wilson and Jodi Glaubman on the library’s mezzanine Thursday. Library Journal named the Port Townsend Library one of three “star libraries” in Washington state. ings of three, four or five stars in their budget categories. The Port Townsend Library, which has a $900,000 annual budget, was in the $400,000-to$999,999 budget range category. The award is based on the facility’s budget as it translates to circulation, program attendance and inlibrary Internet use. The library boasts 29.6 visits per capita — the
highest in Washington state, Percy said. The magazine also recognized the Seattle Public Library with five stars in its category of $30 million and the Lopez Island Library District with four stars in its category of $200,000 to $399,900. While the Port Townsend Library will use the national recognition to raise its visibility, it must immediately increase its urgency in the search for a tempo-
rary home. The library is scheduled for a seismic retrofit this spring, during which time the walls and roof will be shored up to make them “earthquake proof” while other repairs will be conducted. The cost of the retrofit will be subsidized by a $600,000 Federal Emergency Management Agency — or FEMA — grant and $260,000 in city funds. This amount includes
On Thursday, Percy and City Manager David Timmons visited Mountain View Commons to judge its suitability and came to no conclusions, Percy said. She said the library also is looking at the possibility of renting the space at 1121 Water St., which formerly housed Swain’s Outdoor and which has been vacant since the store closed in February. That site is also under consideration by the Quimper Mercantile Exchange, which hopes to open a Port Townsend retail outlet in 2012. Percy said the library wants to rent about 6,500 square feet for the temporary move, with a strong preference that it all be on one level. Once the seismic retrofit is completed, the library will look toward raising money for the remainder of its $9 million renovation project.
Money for renovation
received, the library has nearly $800,000 in private donations in hand and is optimistic about an additional 500,000 in grants, Percy said. An additional $3.5 million from the U.S. Rural Development division and $375,000 from the state’s heritage capital projects fund have not been received as expected, causing a shortfall of those amounts. “There are funds that we thought were secure that we aren’t going to get,” Percy said. With these losses, the library still must raise about $7 million, Percy said. Revenue from a city levy lid lift approved by voters in 2008 to benefit the public library, which will bring in $2.9 million in 2011, is earmarked for operations and cannot be used for capital projects, Percy said. “There is money coming in all the time, so I’m not worried,” she said. “We are getting different parts done one at a time so we can decide what we can afford to do next as the funds become available.” For information about how to donate, visit the Friends of the Library, www.ptpubliclibrary.org.

Salish disrupts service to save boater Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — Ferry service on the Port Townsend-Coupeville route Friday was disrupted when the MV Salish conducted a water rescue for a man on a pleasure craft. At about 3:45 p.m., the Salish was pulling into Port Townsend when boat personnel noticed a man in a 17-foot craft who seemed to be ill, said Susan Harris
Huether, spokeswoman for Washington State Ferries. The ferry circled the distressed boater, who was not identified, several times until crew members prepared an inflatable Zodiac boat to pull him out of the water. The Zodiac, with the man aboard, traveled alongside the ferry while taking him to shore, said Port Townsend City Councilwoman Laurie Medlicott,
who was watching from her home. He was taken to an East Jefferson Fire-Rescue ambulance that was waiting on the ferry dock and that pulled into an adjacent parking lot to give him initial treatment. The man was transported to Jefferson Healthcare hospital, where he was treated for hypothermia and discharged, said Bill Beezley, fire depart-
ment spokesman. Harris Huether said one round trip of the Salish was canceled. Service commenced with the 5:15 p.m. sailing. Service already was behind schedule because of high winds and choppy seas, Harris Huether said. Medlicott said she saw another boat tow the abandoned boat into shore after the rescue.

OMC gets injunction against strike By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Olympic Medical Center has won a court case to prevent unionized hospital nurses and other employees from striking over health care costs and staffing levels. Kitsap County Superior Court Judge M. Karlynn Haberly on Tuesday granted OMC’s motion for summary judgment and ordered a permanent injunction against Service Employes International Union Healthcare 1199 Northwest to strike against the public hospital district. SEIU 1199NW repre-
sents more than 350 nurses, dietary workers and service workers at the Port Angeles hospital. After mediated contract talks came to a stalemate, SEIU threatened an 18-hour walkout Aug. 11.
$600,000 cost OMC Chief Executive Officer Eric Lewis said the strike would have cost the hospital district $600,000 to bring in 150 skilled replacement workers and train them to cover the 18-hour strike. Haberly issued a two-week restraining order to avert the strike Aug. 3 and later issued a prelimi-
nary injunction. On Tuesday, Haberly ordered that it is illegal for the union and its members to strike against the public hospital. “The Defendants and members of the Defendant Union are hereby permanently restrained and enjoined from engaging in any strike against the Plaintiff after November 8, 2011,” Haberly ruled. OMC is asking its employees and managers to pay for 25 percent of their children’s health care insurance, which is now free, and to pay 50 percent for a spouse, an amount that now is about 40 percent.
Haberly acted as a visiting judge because the Clallam County Superior Court judges had recused themselves. “We are pleased with the ruling, that a strike against OMC as a public hospital district is prohibited under Washington state law,” Lewis said in a statement. “Our goals from the beginning were to maintain health care services for our community and local jobs for our valued employees. “OMC remains committed to reaching a fair contract settlement with SEIU,” he added. Union spokeswoman Linnae Riesen provided a
statement Friday from OMC nurse and union member Ginny Majewski. “Our primary concern has been, and continues to be, getting Olympic Medical Center to return to the bargaining table,” Majewski said. “We will continue to work for guaranteed staffing for every patient every time, affordable health care for our families and retirement security.”
when our patients need us. “We’d like to settle a contract that allows us to continue to improve care and put patients first,” she said. Last month, OMC settled its final contract with United Food and Commercial Workers 21. UFCW represents 374 OMC workers in Home Health, professional technical services, clerical, laundry and the billing office.

PORT ANGELES — Jay Ketchum, a politically active Sequim businessman, was found dead Friday morning at the State Patrol scales along U.S. Highway 101 east of Port Angeles. A State P a t r o l trooper found Ketchum’s body at 6:30 a.m. T h e cause was a g u n s h o t Ketchum wound to the head, the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office said. The Sheriff’s Office concluded Ketchum shot himself. Sheriff Bill Benedict said he didn’t know if Ketchum left a note explaining his actions or what caused him to commit suicide. Ketchum, 55, owned Affordable Roofing, Affordable Services and Affordable Crane. He was also no stranger to the public eye. Ketchum had made headlines several times for throwing his money behind local political candidates. Clallam County Public Utility District Commissioner Hugh Haffner and county Prosecuting Attorney Deb Kelly, whose campaigns have both benefited from his contributions, said they were both shocked by the news.

Use of crane The use of one of his cranes to display a large sign urging voters to reelect Deb Kelly as county prosecuting attorney last year prompted a supporter of her opponent, Larry Freedman, to file a complaint with the state Public Disclosure Commission. The sign hung precariously near U.S. Highway 101 at his property. The complaint claimed it was worth $54,446 in undisclosed in-kind contributions. The PDC ruled in Ketchum’s favor. Ketchum, who ran unsuccessfully for Fire District No. 3 commissioner in 2001, found himself in the news in 2002 for allegedly chest-bumping a Clallam County sheriff’s deputy and pointing a loaded assault rifle at him. The deputy was responding to a report of a fire at his U.S. Highway 101 home. A jury found him not guilty of second-degree assault. A retrial held on the third-degree-assault charge because the jury couldn’t reach a unanimous decision ended when he reached a settlement. The settlement was sealed from the public.

‘Pocket neighborhood’ creator speaks Author, architect to be at PT Library event Saturday Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND Architect and author Ross Chapin will present ideas and photographs from his new book, Pocket Neighborhoods: Creating Small Scale Community in a Large Scale World, in Port Townsend on Saturday. Chapin will speak and sign books at the Port Townsend Library, 1220 Lawrence St., at 5 p.m. Chapin’s ideas for clustered housing first took root in Langley on
Whidbey Island. In 1996, he and developer Jim Soules collaborated on building the Third Chapin Street Cottages, a cluster of small cottages around a shared garden.
within the city. The catch was that the homes were limited to 975 square feet in size, had to be oriented around a central common garden and had to have parking shielded from the street. This ordinance eventually inspired one adopted by the city of Port Townsend.

B.C. fisherman held in cocaine case Peninsula Daily News and news services
A Canadian fisherman and drug smuggler who escaped prosecution after authorities seized his boat and cargo of 2½ tons of cocaine off the North Olympic Peninsula coast in 2001 is now suspected of trying to smuggle 400 kilograms of cocaine from Colombia by boat. The Oct. 18 arrest of John Philip Stirling, a gruff 60-year-old fisherman from Vancouver Island, marks the third time in a decade that he’s been caught redhanded smuggling large quantities of drugs, according to court records. Until now, he’s managed to avoid prosecution on both sides of the border, though nobody has ever said on the record how.
Unapologetic He remains unabashed and unapologetic, according to charges filed in the recent case in Miami. While being transported to the Federal Detention Center in Miami, Stirling is alleged to have remarked that “there was nothing wrong with cocaine trafficking and that the United States should mind its own business.” The charges say Stirling’s sailing vessel, the 58-foot Atlantis V, was intercepted 300 miles off the Colombian mainland by the U.S. Coast Guard cutter Confidence on Oct. 17. The boat, which was in international waters sailing under a Canadian flag, was
shadowed by the cutter while the Coast Guard awaited authority from Canada to board her. The next day, while still awaiting permission, an Atlantis V crewman identified as Luigi Barbaro jumped into the sea and was picked up by the cutter. “Barbaro informed the USCG that narcotics were on the Atlantis V and that he feared for his life.” He claimed the remaining crew members were preparing to scuttle the boat. In the meantime, a second crewman jumped and was rescued, according to the charges. After Canada provided permission to board the boat, a team from the Confidence found 358 bundles of suspected cocaine, weighing roughly 880 pounds, hidden behind woodwork. Two of the bundles were later found to contain heroin and methamphetamine, the charges say. In 2006, Canadian authorities boarded another fishing vessel captained by Stirling in the Strait of Juan de Fuca and found $6.5 million worth of marijuana. Stirling was charged in British Columbia. However, the prosecution was “stayed” — without explanation — and Stirling and his crew went free. But the 2001 case involving Stirling and another boat, the Western Wind, still sets eyeballs rolling in federal law-enforcement circles. Stirling was master of
the 88-foot tuna boat, which was stopped by the U.S. Coast Guard entering the Strait of Juan de Fuca off Cape Alava. Under several tons of frozen fish, searchers found nearly 5,000 pounds of cocaine in bags marked as sugar. At the time, it was considered the largest cocaine seizure in Northwest history.
Never charged U.S. Customs took Stirling and four crewmen into custody, only to release them to Canada a few days later without official explanation. He was never charged. Stirling, in an interview with The Seattle Times the following year, admitted he was smuggling the drugs but said he’d been caught in a squeeze-play between the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Hells Angels. Stirling said the RCMP backed out of a deal to pay him $1 million to set up a drug sting of the Hells Angels. Stirling said he’d been approached about the deal by a biker intermediary he met in prison in the early 1990s while serving time for smuggling drugs. The bikers helped him buy the Western Wind, he said, but then the RCMP pulled out of the deal. He claimed he was left owing money and drugs to the bikers and said they’d kill him if he didn’t deliver. Law enforcement sources on both sides of the border told a different story.
David G. Sellars/for Peninsula Daily News
The Kristena Rose, formerly the Western Wind, is seen dry-docked for repairs at the Platypus Marine Inc. yard in Port Angeles last February. The boat is now based in Neah Bay. They said Stirling told the RCMP the deal had gone south — so to speak — and that he had simply gone fishing. However, while at sea, he said, he received a threatening email from the bikers telling him to go to Colombia and get the drugs, or else. Either way, it was a double-cross, said Donald Bambenek, a retired senior agent with U.S. Customs who was running the investigation onboard the Western Wind that day.
No information The Canadians refused to provide information about Stirling, citing a law that offers complete and
unqualified protection to police informants. Nor would they cooperate with any plan to try to salvage the drug delivery in British Columbia, even though it gave the RCMP a chance to crack the Hells Angels. Canadian officials also refused to let armed — or even unarmed — U.S. agents on Canadian soil, Bambenek said. “The way things worked is that the Canadians had to protect their informant, even if he went sideways on them,” he said. “It was frustrating. We hit several roadblocks. We were in international waters, and a lot could have been done, but it wasn’t.” Calls left with the RCMP
media office in Vancouver, B.C., were not immediately returned. “All I can say is I hope that nobody is stupid enough to use him in any fashion as an informant,” said Bambenek, who now runs an investigative agency in Gig Harbor. Stirling did make overtures, according to the Miami charging documents. “Stirling waived his right to an attorney, but stated that he would not provide information unless he was going to be released from custody,” wrote FBI Special Agent Eric McGuire. “However, when Stirling was notified that an immediate release was not possible, he decided to invoke his right to counsel.”

They also make food out of pallid worms, but I imagine when you hold the pallid worms up to the wax moths, the worms pale by comparison. Eating bugs is called entomophagy — or, for short, gross. Most people don’t eat bugs unless they’re in the habit of iding motorcycles with their mouths open.
In San Francisco, however, the motto is what the heck, we haven’t done anything stupid in a while, let’s chew aphids. People are lining up to pay big bucks for insects because, well, they’re expensive, more costly than beef. (This makes sense, though — imagine how difficult it must be to ranch a herd of pallid worms. The branding process alone must take a huge amount of time. You can’t use a rope and lasso to catch them — you probably have to use dental floss.) What do insects taste like? To answer the question, I checked around on the Internet, because I am not going to eat larvae tacos myself. What I’ve determined after a lot of research is that insects taste like bugs. What did you expect? Insects are bugs. You know what eats bugs? Other bugs! Also snakes. And bats. And fish. Take a woman on a date to a restaurant that serves insects, and she will rate you on the above animal scale.
If you’re polite and funny, you might get upgraded from snake to fish, but that’s about the best you are going to do. And all over the world, of course, joke books are being revised. Old joke: Customer: Waiter, what’s this fly doing in my soup? Waiter: I believe it’s the backstroke, sir. New joke: Customer: Waiter, what’s this fly doing in my soup? Waiter: The fly is your soup, sir. According to some sources, the United Nations is said to be very interested in insects as a food source. For one thing, people are not likely to want to fight in wars if they are busy throwing up. For another, it appears that a few pounds of bugs can feed a lot of humans, mainly because everyone will refuse to eat them. Actually what the article said is that bugs don’t emit greenhouse gases. Of course, neither do rocks,
but it’s even harder to get people to eat those. Plus, rocks are heavy to ship, while bugs often fly themselves. Kids: Mom, here comes a plague of locusts. Mom: Dinner! Kids: Yay! Can we also have rock salad? The article went on to explain that bugs are a great source of protein. It did not, however, explain compared to what. Here’s the thing: If my protein’s going to come from insects, I don’t want it. I don’t consider any protein source to be great if it lives under my refrigerator. Bugs aren’t a great source of protein, they’re an irrelevant source of protein. Chickens eat bugs. Chickens are an even better source of protein, because they filter the insects through their system and turn them into buffalo wings. Now, I know I’m going to get a bunch of email from fans of the bug-a-rito challenging me on my presumptions.
They will chide me for making fun of insect-munchers because I’ve never actually eaten a delicious bug-from-a-truck myself. No, you’re right, and I haven’t eating the tires from a truck, either. They’re probably pretty tasty, as well. I saw an X-ray once of a man who had swallowed a light-bulb. I’m also probably not going to try that one. My unwillingness to try to eat things that make me retch might be the main reason I don’t live in San Francisco. I don’t mind if other people chomp on moth larvae, though. In fact, next time you’re lying in the dark at night and you hear a mosquito buzzing around your face, don’t get irritated. Think of it as a midnight snack!

Peninsula Voices Sale of PDN Concern vs. reality: The ownership changes of both local news outlets evokes concerns but brings reality front and center. To have both the Peninsula Daily News and Sequim Gazette under the same banner is both sad and unfortunate but simultaneously recognizes the elephant in the room: the Internet [“Canadian Group Buys Peninsula Daily News,” Nov. 1 PDN]. Electronic communication is the rapidly expanding news purveyor of choice, especially among the younger generations, both here on the North Olympic Peninsula and across the country. Publishing a newspaper, daily or weekly, is a highly expensive proposition. Fewer can afford to pursue it in the face of diminishing readership and advertising. With increasing numbers fleeing to electronic news, the fact remains that print news, like magazine and book readership, is fast becoming the buggy whip of news dissemination. This is the reality. It matters little whether
future news reporting tends more generally toward liberal or toward conservative emphasis. A swing in either direction potentially leaves the reading public with more partiality rather than greater objectivity. Either way it can leave a news gap that, unfortunately, political ideology is inclined to fill, especially if government-subsidized, resulting in indoctrination rather than newsworthiness. Will this ownership change bode ill for the degree of balance in political news? Will political ideology play a larger or lesser role in local publication of news? In either event, less awareness of government issues and actions could result. These are the concerns. One can only hope for the best, but be wary of the worst. Paul Hanway, Sequim

On a personal note, I have been a business operator in downtown Port Angeles since 1989 and I, too, asked what the downtown association is and what it does for my customers and my business. I began attending PADA board meetings and became involved in the organization and its committee process. I soon learned that PADA is committed to openness and to its members and does have a democratic process, a process that is improved through member participation. As with every organization, whether said organization is in Port Angeles or Los Angeles, participation in the process is the key to completing the goal of the committee or association. In the case of PADA, the goal is the multifaceted betterment of the downtown community. Turn

Laser flashings THERE IS AN epidemic under way across the country of potentially dangerous laser flashings aimed into aircraft cockpits, the Federal Aviation Administration said. So far this year, pilots have reported 2,795 incidents of lasers being flashed into their cockpits while they were aloft, the FAA said. Last year, the total number of flashings was 2,836. In 2009, in contrast, there were 1,527. Laser attacks pose a significant danger because they can temporarily blind pilots. Most occur near airports when planes are taking off or landing. Cities with the most reported incidents were Phoenix, with 96; Philadelphia, with 95; and Chicago, with 83, the FAA said. Alarmed by the rise in attacks, the FAA in June announced a fine of up to $11,000 for interfering with an airplane’s pilot or crew by flashing a laser at them. The FAA said it is investigating 18 cases. Now, the FAA has created a website — www.faa. gov/aircraft/safety/report/laserinfo — that provides information on laser attacks, along with links for pilots, air-traffic controllers and the public to report laser flashings as well as any information that could help authorities catch the perpetrators. Peninsula Daily News news sources little of this work. In the past, people in various areas in the U.S. would leave their homes in the early summer and travel with the harvest to pick fruits and vegetables and work other crops.

Rave of the Week I WANT TO commend a young man of grade-school age who held the door open for me when I was leaving the Port Angeles post office. He had a small package in his arms, but I had an armful of mail, and he held the door open. I also want to thank his parents for training him.
. . . and other Raves THANK YOU, MARS Hill Church of Seattle, for your generous donation of two 17-foot truckloads of food to the Port Angeles Food Bank. Its food stores were ransacked by thieves in mid-October. “PLAID TIDINGS,” THE Readers Theatre Plus presentation at Old Dungeness Schoolhouse [Sequim], is an absolute treasure. To say it was a laugh a minute does not do it justice. It is absolutely wonderful. Treat yourself to sheer joy. Way to go, Readers Theatre! SATURDAY EVENING, WE had the privilege of being entertained by some of the North Olympic Peninsula’s best at the Old Dungeness Schoolhouse [Sequim]. The four “stars” (The Four Plaids) were accompanied by the best-ever pianist, and the director extraordinaire held us all in complete awe of their talents! If you haven’t seen it, do get your tickets now.
THANKS TO THE Make a Difference Day wheelchair racers who braved the rainy weather in Sequim in order to participate in this event. You are my heroes. You were awesome. You show the community how you meet everyday challenges. Thanks to the community for your donations for making this event a huge success. HUGE RAVE TO the Clallam County Public Utility District crew last Saturday, when temperatures were 38 degrees. You got our power going at night, by Monterra [Port Angeles]. A HUGE RAVE to that wonderful Safeway (Port Angeles, on the east side) employee who found and returned my checkbook that I’d left at the deli counter. Thank you, thank you. RAVES TO THE thoughtful person who returned a new purse’s content to a local establishment in Port Angeles. I had changed my mind after I bought it and returned the purse, only to forget to remove some information cards. Thank you for returning it to the store. I don’t have to get new cards. It’s much appreciated. MUCH APPRECIATED RAVES to Peninsula College’s nursing students Rosa, Jackie and Casey for volunteering your help to make our Caregiver Conference the best. Also, an extra helping of raves to Marca, Leta, Rick, Nate and Alec at Peninsula College [Port Angeles] for a smooth and trouble-free day.

THIS RAVE IS for Mary in Agnew [Port Angeles]. Her concern and compassion for helping to contain two horses that were cruising around Gunn Road was appreciated.
SURE, THE BURNED remains of the New Peking restaurant [Port Angeles] are an eyesore, and I bet the owners think the same thing. Maybe the fire is still being investigated; maybe the insurance is holding up the process. Please don’t complain about something until you know the facts.

Rant of the Week WHILE WORKING RETAIL in a store, I am appalled at the lack of courtesy from the general public to cashiers serving them.

I’M A SMALL businessman in Clallam County, and I just wondered what the sheriff is going to do about methamphetamine. You cannot swing a dead cat in this county without touching methamphetamine. It’s in epidemic proportions, and it’s hurting our economy. We asked county Chief Criminal Deputy Ron Cameron for a response. Here it is: In the ast several years, cases involving meth have dropped appreciably due to enforcement, education and precursor controls. Labs that produce meth are very rare these days. Recently, narcotics investigators like Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team (OPNET) are faced with an overwhelming number of cases involving heroin.
Methamphetamine use is still present and investigated. When someone is close to a meth user or a drug trafficker, it is very visible and disruptive to everyone. If you suspect any kind of drug activity, you may report it anonymously to OPNET at 360417-4999 or by visiting the Clallam County sheriff’s website (www.clallam.net/sheriff) and reporting through CrimeNet Tip Form. We have experts at OPNET who give presentations to our community on any subject matter pertaining to drugs and drug enforcement that the group may desire — presentations on meth, cocaine, heroin or general drug problems in our area (yes, even medical marijuana), whatever may fit the issue facing that group. Phone me at 360-417-2570 or Det. Cpl. Jason Viada at 360-4174999 to make arrangements for OPNET presentations.

Quileute to walk red carpet at ‘Twilight’ By Arwyn Rice
Peninsula Daily News
LA PUSH — Members of the Quileute tribe will get star treatment Monday night in Los Angeles. Chairwoman Bonita Cleveland and several students from LaPush will attend the world premiere of “Breaking Dawn: Part 1,” the fourth installment of the “Twilight” movie saga, at the Nokia Theatre, said Jackie Jacobs, tribal publicist. In author Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight universe, some Quileute tribal members form the Wolf Pack, werewolves that protect their people from vampires. Jacob Black, a Quileute alpha werewolf, at one point forms part of a love triangle with protagonist Belle Swan, a mortal, and her vampire swain, Edward Cullen.
‘Twilight’ stars The real Quileute members will share the red carpet with “Twilight” stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. Cleveland plans to highlight the tribe’s Pacific Northwest heritage on the walk, wearing a couture outfit by renowned Haida designer Dorothy Grant of Vancouver, B.C., Jacobs said. While select members of the Quileute will get a sneak peek at “Breaking
Dawn” on Monday, the show will premiere on the North Olympic Peninsula just after midnight Friday at Deer Park Cinema, at 96 Deer Park Lane off U.S. Highway 101 in Port Angeles, and later that day at the Rose Theatre in Port Townsend. Tickets for the 12:05 a.m. and 12:10 a.m. Port Angeles premiere showings are available at the box office or at www. tinyurl.com/3kwbjuc. They cost $10 for adults, $7 for children and $7.50 for seniors. The premiere will include a costume contest. The Rose Theatre, 235 Taylor St. in Port Townsend, will show “Breaking Dawn” beginning Friday. Showtimes have not yet been scheduled. Tickets will be available Monday and will cost $9 for adults, $8 for seniors and $7 for children, or $1 less for matinee showings. Meyer’s four-novel series about vampires and teen love are set in Forks, LaPush and Port Angeles. The newest installment in the tale of teen love, vampires and werewolves covers the first half of the fourth and final book in the series, Breaking Dawn. The first film, “Twilight,” was released in November 2008. “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” followed in November 2009. “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” was released in June 2010.

Washington coach Steve Sarkisian reacts on the sideline during the second half of Saturday’s game against USC in Los Angeles.
Trojans solve Huskies The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES — Washington’s victories over Southern California in the past two seasons were the biggest evidence of the Huskies’ remarkable progress under coach Steve Sarkisian. The Huskies’ blowout loss to the 18th-ranked Trojans in the latest meeting of this simmering rivalry only emphasized to Sarkisian how far they’ve still got to go. Marqise Lee ALSO . . . caught a touch■ Cougars down pass and take on ASU returned the secin cold/B2 ond-half kickoff 88 yards for a score, and Curtis McNeal had a 79-yard TD sprint among his career-high 148 yards rushing in USC’s 40-17 victory over Washington on Saturday. Matt Barkley passed for 174 yards and one touchdown while running for an early score for the Trojans (8-2, 5-2 Pac-12), who made sure Huskies kicker Erik Folk played no significant role, as he did in each of Sarkisian’s first two meetings with his former employer. Sarkisian was left lamenting poor offensive execution and special-teams struggles after his first loss to the powerful Trojans, who employed him as an assistant coach to Pete Carroll for most of the past decade. Washington beat Carroll’s final USC team and Lane Kiffin’s first squad on Folk’s field goals. “I think our kids really wanted to play well, and they tried hard,” Sarkisian said. “We just didn’t execute. “The last two weeks, especially offensively, we haven’t progressed. We haven’t found a rhythm offensively the last two weeks that we are accustomed to.”
Price struggles Keith Price passed for just 125 yards for Washington (6-4, 4-3) before leaving with an injured left knee in the third quarter of the Huskies’ third loss in four weeks to Top-25 opponents. Chris Polk rushed for a season-low 36 yards and a touchdown for the Huskies, who have lost to Stanford, Oregon and USC since their 5-1 start. “I knew they had a chip on their shoulder,” Washington linebacker Cort Dennison said. “I wasn’t surprised they came out with fire at all.” Price went 12 for 16 for 125 yards — his lowest total since the Huskies’ opener — and failed to throw a touchdown pass for the first time all season. The sophomore from nearby Compton was shaken up repeatedly while getting sacked four times before he was replaced by Nick Montana. Joe Montana’s son threw his first career TD pass with 13 seconds to play, hitting Kasen Williams with a 20-yard fade. Kiffin had the jump on Sarkisian, his longtime friend and co-offensive coordinator at USC for several seasons, from the opening minutes. After Barkley scored the Trojans’ first points on a sneak, USC went up 14-3 on Tyler’s short TD run to cap an 80-yard drive. “This has become a big rivalry,” Kiffin said. “It’s going to be a very competitive rivalry for a long time.” Just not this time. Kiffin’s Trojans seem to be getting better every week down the stretch, winning five of six heading into next weekend’s trip to Oregon. Marc Tyler rushed for a score for the bowl-banned Trojans, who took a 20-point halftime lead despite a rare quiet game from receiver Robert Woods. The sophomore had a seasonlow two catches for 5 yards. Barkley also didn’t need to do much after throwing a school-record six TD passes last week at Colorado. Barkley’s offense outgained the Huskies 401-148 in the first three quarters.

Sweeping success Pirate women, men go on to Final Four By Matt Schubert
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — The men brought their usual flash, and the women their physicality. Both approaches ended up with the same result at Sigmar Field on Saturday: Peninsula College soccer wins that catapulted each team into the NWAACC Final Four.
Shelby Solomon netted a first-half score that stood up in a 1-0 Pirate women’s victory over second-ranked Spokane. Miguel Gonzalez scored three goals, including one on a jawdropping bicycle kick, to lead the top-ranked Pirate men to a dominating 5-0 triumph over Everett. And now they are each
headed to the Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila next weekend for a shot at dueling NWAACC soccer championships. “I’m not sure I did see this coming,” Pirate men’s coach Andrew Chapman said, whose team is still undefeated at 18-0-2 as it goes for its second straight NWAACC crown. “We knew we were going to be good, but to be doing this, it is special.” Indeed, the way the Pirates dismantled Everett (6-11-1) in their quarterfinal matchup, scoring five goals in the first 38 minutes, was almost clinical.
The Peninsula women were perhaps slightly less impressive in their own win, if only because they didn’t finish a multitude of chances in front of the net. With their defensive back line keeping Spokane (15-6-0) from finding any footing up front, however, that didn’t seem to matter. “That’s the first time in a month that we’ve really been pushed athletically and really forced outside our comfort zone,” Pirate women’s coach Kanyon Anderson said. “We handled it.” Turn

Sequim gets knocked out of 2A playoffs

Peninsula Daily News
POULSBO — The Sequim Wolves knew who they had to stop from W.F. West. Two minutes into Friday night’s Class 2A state playoff at chilly North Kitsap High School, it was clear they wouldn’t be able to. Quarterback Mitch Gueller scored touchdowns on the Bearcats’ first two snaps and finished with 294 yards of offense to lead his team to a decisive 52-21 victory that ended the Wolves’ season. “We talked about it all week, having to stop this kid because he was good, and it just didn’t happen,” Sequim junior Jack Wiker said. “He’s fast, big. He made people miss.” The state appearance was the Wolves’ sixth in a row, a feat matched only by perennial power Lynden. Yet Friday night’s loss marked the fifth time in six years Sequim saw its season end with a first round exit. Only the 2009 team was able to advance to the quarterfinals. Turn

Sequim quarterback Jack Wiker falls on a bad snap during the second quarter of Friday night’s Class 2A state playoff against W.F. West at North Kitsap high school in Poulsbo.
The Port Angeles volleyball team doubled the school’s state wins with one victory at the Class 2A tournament this weekend. That was the Roughriders’ only win, though, as they were knocked out in the fifth-place semifinals to go 1-2 at state and finish a win shy of a trophy. The Riders went two-andout last year, and the only other time they were at state — in 1989 — they also went 1-2. All three North Olympic Peninsula volleyball teams that made it to state struggled as Crescent and Neah Bay both went two-and-out at the 1B championships. Each faced potent top-10 teams early on and couldn’t quite get over the hump. For the Riders, they defeated unranked Ephrata 3-1 in the first round but then lost 3-0 to No. 3 Tumwater in the championship quarterfinals at The Evergreen State College in Olympia on Friday. Turn

Halliday, seeing his first extensive playing time at quarterback, completed 27 of 36 passes, and the yardage was a freshman passing record for WSU.

Prep Football will host the game in Bellingham. “We’re trying to set it up for Friday some time,” McCaulley said. In the meantime, the Red Devils beat archrival Clallam Bay on Nov. 5, smashed Lopez Island on Tuesday and ripped Mary M. Knight on Saturday to finally punch their ticket to state. Neah Bay led 24-0 after one quarter and scored 16 in the second period of Saturday’s contest. The game was called at halftime after Titus Pascua returned an interception for a touchdown. Pascua also had a rushing score while quarterback Josiah Greene ran the ball in for two touchdowns and Tyler McCaulley, who led the defense with 13 tackles, also had a rushing score. “We dominated both sides of the ball,” Tony McCaulley said. Mary M. Knight was held to just two first downs in the game. Boxscore information was unavailable as of press time.

PA diver Hodgin third in Class 2A Rider senior top area finisher at swim, dive meet Peninsula Daily News
FEDERAL WAY — Port Angeles senior diver Allison Hodgin captured third place while both the Roughriders and Port Townsend Redskins had relay teams finish in the top five at the Class 2A swimming and diving championships this weekend. The preliminaries took place Friday at the King C o u n t y Aquatic C e n t e r, while the Hodgin finals were on Saturday night. Hodgin had the top performance on the North Olympic Peninsula as she claimed third with a score of 222.15, missing second by less than four points and first by 15 points.
She was seeded fourth in the meet. Other top performances went to the Port Angeles 400-yard freestyle relay, which took fourth place in 3 minutes, 54.31 seconds. Brooke Sires, Tarah Erickson, Ashlee Reid and Tracie Macias swam in that relay for the Riders. The Port Townsend 200 free relay claimed fifth place as well. The Redskins had a time of 1:46.84 with Rose Ridder, Tanner Matthew, Renada Walcome and Serena Vilage. Ridder and Matthew are both freshmen. Also finishing in the top eight was the Port Angeles 200 medley relay team, taking seventh in 1:59.71 with Reid, Kelsey Macias, Tracie Macias and Erickson. Finishing in the top 16 were three area swimmers in the 50 free as Ridder captured ninth, Erickson 14th and Vilage 15th. Vilage also grabbed 12th place in the 100 breaststroke.

Sequim wide receiver Christian Miles tries to avoid W.F. West’s Colton Watson as he moves up field during first-quarter action at North Kitsap High School in Poulsbo.
Wolves: Fall in first round Continued from B1 W.F. West (9-2 overall) became the third Evergreen Conference team to eliminate Sequim (9-2) from the playoffs during that run. Of course, it didn’t help that the Olympic League champions had to take on the Bearcats minus star quarterback/linebacker Frank Catelli for the third week in a row. “We overcame a lot of things [this season],” Sequim head coach Erik Wiker said. “You take our best player, who is really great, out [for 4½ games], I think that we accomplished a lot of things. “[The loss] will sting now, but in the long run [we] had a great year with the kids that [we] had. I think [we] achieved or over achieved.” It was obvious from the beginning that the absence of Catelli’s defensive presence would be a problem against Gueller and the Bearcats. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound senior ripped off touchdown runs of 60 and 73 yards on W.F. West’s first two plays from scrimmage. Gueller delivered a powerful stiff arm, then weaved his way across the field on the first one, then simply out-ran Sequim’s defense on the second to help put West ahead 14-0. Quarterback Jack Wiker threw the first of four interceptions on the Wolves’ next play from scrimmage, and the Bearcats scored another TD four plays later to go up 21-0 three minutes into the game.
“He’s gifted, he’s a great player,” W.F. West head coach Bob Wollan said of Gueller. “If he gets loose, he’s gone. “He can make a bad play look good and he can make us look pretty smart over there with his ability.” The Bearcats rolled for 382 yards rushing and 450 all together. Gueller, a Washington State baseball signee, accounted for more than half of that. By the time he left the game at the end of the third quarter, he had 226 yards rushing on 14 carries and another 68 yards on 7-of-13 passing with one touchdown and no picks. He did fumble twice. His one scoring strike, a 20-yard pass to Alex Cox, was the last of four firstquarter touchdowns for the Bearcats as they went up 28-0 and never looked back. “We were kind of frantic after those two touchdowns,” Sequim senior lineman Brendan Carpenter said. “I think it was deflating; I think we took it a little too hard. “If we would have just kind of rolled with it we could have kept going.” Instead, faced with a large deficit so early on, the Wolves failed to generate much of a run game against the Bearcats. Sequim had just four runs go for more than six yards, three coming after the Bearcats went ahead 52-7 at the end of the third quarter, and had 127 total yards on the ground. Jack Wiker, replacing Catelli at QB once again in the Wolves’ shotgun attack,
could not channel the same magic that led his team to a come-from-behind 40-34 win over Eatonville the week before. The junior ended up throwing the ball 38 times and completed just 18 of those for 154 yards. He was intercepted four times while hounded by the Bearcat pass rush and had another 83 yards rushing on 19 carries with two TDs. Lopaka Yasumura added 38 yards rushing and one touchdown on seven carries for the Wolves and also caught four balls for 53 yards. Receivers Tyler Forshaw (four catches, 21 yards), Michael Ballard (3-30) and Nick Ramirez (5-38) were all targeted often as well. Yet none of them were able to connect with Jack Wiker on any big pass plays with the Bearcats quick defensive backs making play after play in the secondary. “The quarterback was the main concern, just his ability to run the football. He’s a real playmaker,” Wollan said. “We wanted to account for that and take away their running game, and I thought that was really key for us to make him as one-dimensional as possible and get him to throw the football around.” Sequim tacked on two touchdowns on its final two drives of the game, one ending on an 11-yard Wiker run and the other a 26-yard Yasumura run. The 40-point running clock had already been triggered by then, however, and time was running out on the Wolves’ season.
“Obviously they miss their big guy [Catelli],” Wollan said. “He’s just a force defensively, and another weapon. “In high school, it doesn’t matter where, if you miss the wrong one or two guys, it changes the dynamic of your team.” Sequim graduates 15 seniors from this year’s team, which claimed the program’s seventh league championship in eight years under Wiker. Among the players moving on are Catelli, the coOlympic League MVP, and Forshaw, the league’s defensive MVP. “I think it was a great season,” Jack Wiker said. “We had to overcome so much with Frank going down and all the other stuff that we had to go through. “It could have been a lot worse and we made it as good as we could have.” W.F.

Volleyball: Red Devils go 0-2 Continued from B1 The Riders beat Ephrata 25-19, 25-9, 20-25, 25-18. Port Angeles played Tumwater tough in the first two games, losing 26-24, 25-22, 25-16. On Saturday morning, Port Angeles was bumped from the tourney by No. 4 Anacortes, 3-1, in four barnburner games. The scores were 25-23, 22-25, 25-22, 25-21 Anacortes, which ended up claiming fifth place, had lost 3-1 to No. 2 Selah in the quarterfinals. The Riders (17-5) had one of their best seasons, losing only once in Olympic League and regular-season action, once in the league tournament and once at the 2A West Central District championships. Senior hitter Kiah Jones was voted league MVP while Lauren Norton was named league defensive player of the year and setter Emily Drake made the all-league first team.
1B tourney YAKIMA — The Crescent Loggers and Neah Bay Red Devils both struggled at the SunDome but the youthful Red Devils improved tremendously from last year’s performance. “I’m really proud of what my girls did at state,” Neah Bay coach Sharon Kanichy said. “Our girls played with a positive attitude the entire tournament. They played their hearts out, and they played like they belonged in the state tournament.” That was a major improvement over the performance of last year’s team, Kanichy said. The Red Devils lost 3-1 to No. 6-ranked Moses Lake Christian Academy in the first round, and then lost 3-0 to defending state champion and No. 2-ranked Almira/Coulee-Hartline in the consolation quarterfinals on Friday. “My group was up for it,”Kanichy said.
“They worked hard to win those games.” And they did it with five eighth graders, two freshmen and two sophomores. Neah Bay had just one junior and four seniors on the team, with one of the seniors a first-year player. All this youth can mean nothing but good things for the Red Devils in the years to come. “That will help us out,” Kanichy said. Neah Bay will have only one senior next year but a lot of experience on a stillyoung team. Moses Lake beat the Red Devils 25-6, 22-25, 25-14, 26-24. “That first-game score was purely because of nerves,” Kanichy said. “And we made several mistakes in the third game or else we would have been right there.” The Red Devils played right with strong Moses Lake in the second and fourth games. Almira/Coulee-Hartline
won 25-16, 25-19, 25-13. For the tournament, Morgan Buzzell served five aces while Holly Greene also had five aces and earned a kill at the net. Brandy Swan collected four aces while Rebecca Thompson had 10 kills, four blocks and four aces. Kaela Tyler had a teamhigh seven aces and had two kills and a block while Courtney Winck had six kills and four blocks. Crescent, meanwhile, lost 3-0 to Seton Catholic in the first round and 3-0 to No. 5 Sunnyside Christian in the consolation quarterfinals Friday. Seton Catholic won by the scores 25-10, 25-17, 26-24 while Sunnyside Christian won 25-18, 25-18, 25-15. Seton Catholic, unranked, made it to the championship semifinals before losing. Sunnyside Christian, meanwhile, captured eighth place in the tournament.

Huskies spread it out UW displays versatility in 91-74 home victory The Associated Press
SEATTLE — Washington gave a glimpse of its balance to open the season. The Huskies finished with four players in double figures, led by C.J. Wilcox’s 22 points, in a 91-74 victory over Georgia State on Saturday in the World Vision Classic. Darnell Gant (18 points), Tony Wroten (18 points) and Terrence Ross (11 points) reached double figures for Washington. Rashaad Richardson led Georgia State with 21. Brandon McGee added 17. Wilcox, a redshirt sophomore, opened the second half with two 3-pointers in Washington’s first four possessions. His second swelled the lead to 54-36. After spending last season as a 3-point specialist, Wilcox has been able to expand his game. He contributed six rebounds in addition to going 8 for 12 from the field and 5 for 8 from behind the 3-point line. “If he’s open, he’s going to make it,” Washington point guard Abdul Gaddy said. “Sometimes I feel like if I pass it to him, you can’t look at the rim; you have to get back on defense. “That’s how good a shooter he is. Teams will be digging themselves into a hole if they leave him open.” Washington took control in the second half after leading 43-33 at halftime. The lead reached 20 at 61-41 when Aziz N’Diaye scored in the post with a hook off the glass. The gap later stretched to 26 points. “I think [coach Lorenzo Romar] has a better team this year than he had last year,” Georgia State coach

Ron Hunter said. “This team’s way better. He’s got a really good basketball team. “This easily could have been a 30- or 35-point game. But our guys kept fighting.” Wroten, a freshman guard, finished with 18 points, seven rebounds and three assists. “Last week was kind of a game to get all the jitters out,” Wroten said of an exhibition against Seattle Pacific. “Even though this was a real game that counted, I was just more relaxed and focused and more ready for the game.” Georgia State was not intimidated at the start. After trailing 8-2 early, the Panthers rallied behind Richardson. He made five of his six 3-point attempts in the first half to finish with 15 points at the break. Richardson tied the score at 23 after making 3-pointers on consecutive possessions, forcing a Washington timeout.

Washington’s Terrence Ross drives the lane for a lay-in over Georgia State’s Eric Buckner (20) in the second half of Saturday’s game in Seattle. Wilcox answered with a 3-pointer out of the timeout. He led Washington with 12 points in the first half. Gant added 10 first-half points for Washington with a perfect 4-for-4 start. He scored the first five points of the game. The Huskies extended their lead by using a smaller lineup with Gant at center and four guards. They went up 38-28 with 2:19 left in the half after a layup from Wroten, their first double-digit lead. Wroten closed the half with another layup after going behind his back and getting to his preferred left hand for a 43-33 edge.
N’Diaye started and played 19 minutes a week after missing several practices and the exhibition game because of a concussion. He had five blocks and eight rebounds. Washington announced after the game that 6-foot-10 freshman Jernard Jarreau would redshirt this season. Jarreau said he would work on his all-around game and continue to add weight. He has gained 13 pounds since arriving on campus. Washington plays Florida Atlantic on Sunday on the second day of the threeday tournament. Georgia State will face Portland.
Pirates: Sweep Continued from B1
“That result was 1-0, but it could have easily been 4-0.” With the win, the women put themselves in a semifinal match against either Clackamas (10-5-1) or Green River (12-4-4) next Saturday in Tukwila. The Peninsula men, who will visit the Final Four for the fourth time, will take on Chemeketa (15-2-3) in their semifinal on the same day at the same location. The Storm are the last team to eliminate the Pirate men from the NWAACC playoffs, having beaten them 3-2 in the ’09 quarterfinals. The Pirates have won four straight playoff games since.
“They score goals in bunches,” Chapman said of Chemeketa. “Their defense is their offense. “We like our chances all the way through, but, of course, you’ve got to do the right stuff.” (Women) Peninsula 1, Spokane 0

Of course, all anyone in the stands wanted to talk about after the matches was Gonzalez’s incredible bicyclekick goal. The individual display of improvisational brilliance seemed a fitting farewell for Gonzalez — Peninsula’s alltime leading scorer with 49 career goals — in his final match at Sigmar Field. The Everett goalkeeper turned away Gonzalez’s original shot on a breakaway. But as the ball bounced off the turf and floated back toward him, the sophomore striker made a split-second decision to try a somersault kick that lofted the ball just over the keeper’s outstretched hands and into the net. The goal put the Pirates ahead 3-0 in the 20th minute and set off a wild celebration on the field and in the stands. “When I saw the keeper bounce it, I was like, ‘All right, I’m just going to try and hit it,’” Gonzalez said. “I saw the perfect bounce for the bicycle, and I do that at practice sometimes and had been practicing it, so I was going to take it. Then I hit it, and fortunately it went in.” Teammate Dean Gaynor headed in the first of his two goals just 55 seconds into the match off a Jeff Mullen cross. The flurry of Pirate scoring chances after that overwhelmed the Trojans, whose best defense appeared to be the side judge’s offsides signals. Peninsula was hit for offsides six times in the first half alone, but that didn’t keep it from racing out to a 5-0 lead that allowed Chapman to empty his bench. Yan Gioseffi assisted on Gaynor’s second score in the 18th minute, while Daniel Gonzalez and Tyrone Warren assisted Miguel’s other two scores. “They tried to step up a little bit [on defense], but we’re pretty quick about hitting seams,” Chapman said.
Instead it was the Pirates’ physical brand of soccer, which left Spokane’s players visibly frustrated by the end of the game. The Peninsula centerback trio of Kimmy Jons, Felicia Collins and Deidra Woodward won countless balls in the air, and prolific Sasquatch scorers Alli Floyd (23 goals) and Nikki Caudill (18 goals) rarely had room to operate. Thus, a team that had eliminated the Pirates from the NWAACC playoffs with a five-goal barrage last year wasn’t able to mount a consistent attack after going down 1-0 late in the first half. “It was just all about communication and clearing the ball,” Jons said. “That’s actually two points that Kanyon mentioned before the game: communicate and clear the ball. I think we did that really well during the game.” Solomon scored her goal in the 35th minute and could have added another in the second half had she not pushed a point-blank shot wide in the 50th minute. The missed opportunity was one of three near goals for the Pirates, who out-shot the Sasquatch 10-7 on the game. That included a missed penalty kick by Jackie Rodgers that deflected off the left post. “We played really tough,” said Solomon, the team’s leading scorer with nine goals. “Our defense played great, pushing up on their forwards, and our center-mid Deidra Woodward, she pressured their girl [midfielder Dee Dee Garbe] very well. She wasn’t able to slap balls to her forwards.” Spokane’s best shot at an equalizer came from Caudill from 20 yards out, but Pirate keeper Krystal Daniels deflected it off the cross bar and out of harm’s way. The shutout was Daniels’ 10th of the season, and it came in what some may have termed an upset since the Pirates were ranked third in the NWAACC coaches’ poll and the Sasquatch second. “We thought we should have been ranked higher, and I’m really glad we weren’t, because it put a chip on our shoulder,” Anderson said.

PA Veterans Day ceremony packs hangar By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — A crowd of about 1,000 packed into a Coast Guard hangar in Port Angeles on Friday morning to honor veterans. The annual regional Veterans Day celebration featured patriotic music, words of reverence and moments to reflect on those who have served. For 16 years, a Veterans Day ceremony has been held at Coast Guard Air Station/Sector Field Office, which is designated as the regional Veterans Day observance site by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Hahn welcomed Willis and her husband, Andrew, who is a ship’s engineer for the Royal Canadian Navy in Victoria. Maj. Willis said Veterans Day is a time to remember those who served and to honor those who are still serving.
‘Fight for each other’
“We don’t just fight for our nation,” she said. “We fight for each other.” Willis said it is important to honor the sacrifice of veterans and their families and to celebrate their service every day. “It [Veterans Day] is a moment of respect that is welldeserved,” Willis said, “but there is more that can and should be done to support our veterans. “I would challenge business leaders to make a commitment to Largest on Peninsula hire a vet.

GARDINER — The only Navy Seabee to receive the Medal of Honor, Marvin G. Shields, was remembered for his selfless heroism under extreme fire during the annual Veterans Day ceremony at Gardiner Cemetery. Steady rainfall failed to dampen the spirit of more than 100 civilians and U.S. Navy Seabees personnel from around the Northwest who gathered Friday at the cemetery where Shields, a Port Townsend High School graduate who was mortally wounded in a Viet Cong attack during the Vietnam War, has been buried since 1965. “I think it’s so important on a day like today that they never ever forget, that everyone remembers those who have served,” said Shields’ widow, Joan Bennett, a longtime Gardiner resident who lives there with her second husband, Richard. She attended the service put on by Navy Seabee Veterans of America. Bennett vowed to attend every annual ceremony for Shields, or “as long as I can.”

PORT TOWNSEND — The importance of military service transcends whatever political party is in power, the commanding officer of Naval Magazine Indian Island said during a Veterans Day address. “Through the course of history, we see that it doesn’t matter who sits in the front offices. Our veterans answer the call to defend our great country,” Cmdr. Gary Martin told a crowd of about 225 people at the Marvin G. Shields Memorial American Legion Post 26 at the corner of Water and Monroe streets Friday. “Has it been easy?” he asked. “No. Nothing’s easy, and nothing is free.” Even though Veterans Day is set aside for special recognition of those who fought in foreign wars, appreciation is deserved year round, Martin said. “We will never forget your service,” he told veterans.

Awarded posthumously Shields was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor in 1966 by President Lyndon B. Johnson for gallantry during combat. He died at the age of 25 in Vietnam, where he was a Seabee mechanic with the Navy’s mobile construction battalion. On Friday, Bennett and many in her family stood solemnly, protected under a canopy, while Navy Seabee Chief Builder Kelly Daw declared, “This man stood the watch.” Shields’ Seabee team arrived at Dong Xoai, Vietnam, on June 10, 1965. He was wounded when his unit came under heavy fire from a Viet Cong regiment’s machine gun, heavy weapons and small arms. Turn

Hummingbirds appearing in winter WE MAY NOT like change, but itâ€™s amazing how rapidly we adapt to it. This occurred to me while I was washing out one of the hummingbird feeders. Yes, the hummingbird feeders. Weâ€™re going to have hummingbirds around all winter, and that is something very new in recent years. Gone are the days when the hummers started leaving our yards in late summer. The rufous hummingbirds still head south even though I hear of occasional sightings during the winter. Our rufous left weeks ago, and the hummingbirds we will enjoy throughout the winter are the Annaâ€™s. They have become a yearround resident hummingbird throughout much of the Northwest.
about them. The sugar-water mixture we put out is a welcome treat. Thereâ€™s no denying that. When it is cold and freezing, they stay close to the feeders. Cold weather is on the way, and I am mentally gearing up for seeing the Annaâ€™s through another winter. We will have three, perhaps four, feeders to work with. Most of the time, we keep two outside because there is less arguing and more feeding. When everything freezes, I will try keeping it thawed by leaving a light on above it or wrapping hand warmers around the glass.
BIRD WATCH Joan
began reporting hummingbirds in the middle of the winter. I remember driving around the area in December or January, hoping for a glimpse of one. Tales of wintering hummingbirds were few and far between, but they did occur almost every winter. Anyone visited by one was thrown into a sense of responsibility that wasnâ€™t always pleasant. In good-old-people fashion, we felt we had been given charge for the birdâ€™s well-being, even its survival. Popular in the 1960s One story is unforgettable.

There is natural food available, or they wouldnâ€™t be here. These birds stay the winter because there are plants and tiny insects for them to use as food. Just the same, I worry
I also know we will be rotating frozen and unfrozen feeders regularly, especially in the early morning. It may be a bit of work, but these birds do add beauty, color and entertainment to our lives. Even so, Iâ€™m wondering when a commercial â€œfeeder stallâ€? will come on the market. It will be something that will hold a feeder and supply heat, and you should be able to plug it into a porch light or other outdoor source of electricity. Donâ€™t forget you heard about it here first. If you create one, be sure to let the rest of us know about it.

Man’s ‘sister’ ends fledgling romance DEAR ABBY: I’m a widow who never thought I’d consider marrying again until I met “Lester” online two years ago. Being with him makes me feel like a teenager. He holds my hand when we go for walks, brings me flowers and is a wonderful lover. My problem is he’s taking care of his sister, “Gerda,” who has cancer. He said she doesn’t want him seeing anyone until she’s dead. (He stands to inherit her fortune and doesn’t want to take a chance on losing the money.)

Punch up darkness with light display AS WE MOVE inevitably toward the holidays, punctuated and known by their family gatherings, mirth and merriment, I would like to take the next couple of weeks to pass on some great tricks of the trade and timely suggestions for trimming both your yard and home. Next week, we will talk about pruning your evergreens and using these trimmings in a handful of useful and decorative ways ideal for this time of year and holiday season. Today, I want to talk about “trimming” your house, yard and landscape with creative, artistic expression of light and landscape.
Daylight saving lost Daylight saving time has ended, which to me living here on the very northern latitudinal Olympic Peninsula means we are now back on standard time. It is dark when you wake up and dark by the time you arrive home after work, school or the early evening news. We on the Peninsula do dark-

And the scientific community contends, the long, dark, dreary nights of winter affect many people’s outlook and mood. But festive lighting improves one’s attitude, so why not bring on the lights? Gail did just that. A new client, she always desired a great light show for the holidays, and after seeing the handmade 4,000-light-green multibranch vine and wisteria clusters, she ordered another one, bringing the total light sculpture display to roughly 36,000 lights rather than 32,000.

I tell you this today because lights, cords, displays and garland are all available now, but that abundant availability will change very, very soon. And here is how you do it: First, buy or use only good, heavy-duty cords, not frayed, taped, old extension cords. Smaller is definitely better. Use the shortest cords possible because electricity will be drained by resistance over length.
The smaller the better The smaller the number, the better. Extension cords come in a wire gauge, and the smaller the number, the better the cord and the less fire potential and energy use. Gauges of 8, 10, 12 are great. And stay at least at 16 gauge for multilight-strand displays.

She moved to the Peninsula as a young child in 1965 with her parents when her father began teaching English at Peninsula College. Even though her parents and grandparents were all college professors, she did not choose a college career right after high school. Instead, she married young and worked as a waitress in Port Angeles for many years. “I always wanted to return to college but lack of time and financial support got in the way,” Lucas said.
She got her chance in 1996 when Rayonier Mill shutdown. The economic situation was so dire, then-Gov. Gary Locke allowed all displaced workers in timber-dependent counties, not just timber workers, to receive Timber Retraining Benefits, a program that allowed displaced workers to receive unemployment compensation while attending college full time. When Lucas was laid off from her restaurant job, she became eligible for the educational benefits and immediately headed to Peninsula College.
After a couple of quarters spent learning good study habits, Lucas began to thrive as a student and was named to Washington State’s All-Academic Team and then to USA Today’s All-Academic Team. In 1998, she transferred to Eastern Washington University in Cheney, where, as a newly single mother, she attained her Bachelor of Arts in English with departmental and university honors. The went on to earn her master’s degree at Eastern. After her graduation in 2003, she began work at Peninsula College, teaching composition courses and running the writing lab and tutoring programs.

Buy or use cords with pigtails or at least three-way outlets at the end so you can plug in enough light strands to deck the halls and the walls properly. You can buy three-outlet plugins and convert your existing cords, too. Tape down the cord and threeway plug-ins or any junction of extension cords very well for this is a major source of popped breakers. Remember that today’s LED lights are numerous times more energy-efficient, but with whatever type of lights you use, be cognizant of how many lights you plug into a circuit or end-to-end on each other. Separate the power for best results. Plug into as many different circuits as possible and remember you can buy inexpensive adapters that replace outside lights with a plug-in outlet. I view almost all outside lights as sources of light pollution dampening down the bright brilliance of displays, so why not pull out the bulb and put in a

Global Lens Series PORT ANGELES — “Street Days,” a Georgian film with English subtitles, will close out the Global Lens fall quarter film series at Peninsula College on Friday. The screening will be in Maier Performance Hall, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., at 7 p.m. The film, which follows
the life of Checkie, a middle-aged, unemployed heroin-addict, was Georgia’s official submission to the 2010 Academy Awards. It provides a lightly humorous yet realistic drama about the fate of a generation left behind in Georgia’s post-Soviet era. Checkie spends much of his time loitering on the Tbilisi street outside his son’s school, where he himself was once a promising student. His wife, meanwhile, struggles to pay the tuition and understand her husband’s lack of interest in the family’s survival — even as the bank repossesses their furniture. But when a group of policemen blackmails Checkie into entrapping the son of his wealthy friend, Checkie and his
wife are unified by the uncertainty of their deepening moral dilemma and by a series of worsening foul-ups. Admission is $5 general admission. Peninsula College and area high school students are admitted free with a current student I.D. For more information, visit www.pencol.edu.

to rest at the cemetery. Seabees Force Master Chief Ray Kelly, the highest ranking naval officer at the ceremony, said it was an honor to come from his post in Washington, D.C., to attend the ceremony. “It’s a pretty solemn event for a very American hero, and it’s a big event,” he said.

Death and Memorial Notice CATHERINE PENNINGTON RAYCRAFT October 14, 1944 November 9, 2011 Cathy Raycraft, 67, lost her nine-year battle with breast cancer on Wednesday, November 9, 2011. She passed away with her loving family by her side at her son’s home in Port Angeles. Cathy was born on October 14, 1944, in Seattle to LeRoy and Josephine Nelson. She was the youngest of three children in her family. She enjoyed a wonderful childhood in Lake Forest Park with her siblings as well as several
Mrs. Raycraft cousins in the area. She graduated from Shoreline High School in 1963 and from Western Washington University in 1967.
At the time of her college graduation, her sister, Carol, was teaching grade school in Southern California. The school was so pleased with Carol that they offered Cathy a job teaching sight unseen. This would mark the beginning of Catherine’s 44-year teaching career. After taking the job as a teacher in the Los Angeles area, she soon met her husband, John Raycraft. They were married on April 7, 1968. John and Cathy were blessed with two sons, Steven and Mark. As wonderful of a teacher as she was, her job as a mother was the one she was most proud of. She proudly
drove around with personalized license plates that read MY3BOYS (John was included as one of the boys). The whole family moved to Port Angeles in 1984. She took a job at a Christian school for a couple of years until landing a second-grade job at Helen Haller Elementary School in Sequim. She continued in the Sequim School District for the next 25 years, teaching at both Helen Haller and Greywolf Elementary. Mrs. Raycraft retired earlier this year, shortly after her husband, John, passed away. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002, and she val-
iantly fought for more than nine years until she succumbed on Wednesday morning. Mrs. Raycraft will be greatly missed by the thousands of students she has taught in her career. She was more than just a teacher to many of her students; she was a lifelong friend. She attended countless weddings and graduations of previous students and kept in contact with students she had taught as far back as her first class in 1967. She will be remembered for her warm smile, selfless attitude, loving nature and gentle spirit. She absolutely loved her job, and her students
meant the world to her. Mrs. Raycraft is a name that any student lucky enough to have met her will never forget. She is preceded in death by her parents and brother, Scott, who passed away in 1977. She is survived by her older sister, Carol of Vancouver, Washington; sons Mark and Steven and their respective wives, Angie and Tarci. She also has five grandchildren, Alexis, Austin, Hunter, Marky and Zander. Services will be held at Independent Bible Church, 116 East Ahlvers Road, Port Angeles, on Tuesday, November 15, 2011, at 4 p.m.

Death and Memorial Notice WILLIAM ‘BILL’ ROWLAND May 29, 1924 October 19, 2011 William “Bill” Rowland, son of William Dudley and Agnes Rowland, passed away peacefully at Olympic Medical Center on October 19, 2011, at age 87 of complications related to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Bill was born in Port Angeles on May 29, 1924. There were many constants in Bill’s life: the love of and for his family, a passion for music and golf and a remarkable work ethic. He started working at about age 9 delivering the local newspaper throughout the downtown core. He enjoyed telling the story of delivering the paper to a downtown brothel. His love of golf began in his youth at a small course near Rosemary Inn on Lake Crescent. A highlight of his golfing career was a hole-in-one at the Peninsula Golf Course. Following high school, Bill joined the U.S. Navy, serving in World War II as a pharmacist mate 3rd
class. While serving aboard the USS Zeilin in 1943, he was part of the Alaska campaign in Attu and Kiska. Transferring to the USS William P. Biddle, he served in the South Pacific, taking part in the liberation of the Philippines. Near the end of his military service, he married Betty V. Sammons on April 11, 1945, and settled in Seattle, followed by a move to Thousand Palms, California, in 1955. Over the years, Bill’s work ethic saw him through many career changes. He was a neon glass blower; a worker on the Seattle PI’s giant globe that stands to this day; a cement finisher while living in California; a manager at Brandlund Rug & Upholstery Cleaning; a salesman and eventual owner of Angeles Music Store; a car salesman at Ruddell’s; a salesman and window installer at North Coast Glass; and finally, the public relations spokesman for the Victoria Express. This final job brought him a great deal of joy as he talked with both local and foreign visitors about the Olympic Peninsula that
he loved so much. In later years, Bill would marvel at the variety of jobs he had held over his lifetime. No matter what job Bill held or where he lived, he sought out opportunities to play his music. As a drummer, he played in many bands in Southern California. When he eventually returned to Port Angeles, he continued his music career in earnest, playing in the Elks Club Band for 14 years. Following this, he joined a local big-band group named Opus One. Bill is survived by his wife of 67 years, Betty V. Rowland; Bill Rowland (Suzane), Peggy Becker (Larry); eight grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and six nieces. Bill was preceded in death by daughter Nancy Rowland, granddaughter Kim Williams, brother Milton “Porky” Rowland and sister Evelyn Jacobs. Family and friends will have a celebration of life for Bill at the Peninsula Golf Course, 824 South Lindberg Road, Port Angeles, on Saturday, November 19, 2011, at 4 p.m.

Permanent Hair Removal for Men & Women
n How does electrolysis work?
A very fine, sterile probe is inserted into a hair follicle and a slight amount of electrical current is applied, destroying the hair root and further growth. The treated hair is removed without resistance, and the skin is not harmed.
n How permanent is it?
Electrolysis is effective at permanently destroying actively growing hair—hair that is above the skin surface—when both the stem cells of the hairs and the source of cell nourishment is destroyed. Not all hair is actively growing at the same time. Therefore, a series of treatments are needed to treat an area. Inactive follicles and hair below the skin surface represent a potential for new growth and may necessitate periodic maintenance appointments.
Confidential • Safe • Effective
n Why choose electrolysis?
There are various reasons why individuals remove facial and body hair. Some are concerned with health-related issues, others seek enhanced beauty. People of all ages and all walks of life can enjoy permanently smooth, hair-free and healthylooking skin.

Research has shown that the most effective braking power occurs immediately prior to losing traction. Siping extends the window allowed for maximum braking power by giving the existing tread a helping hand. In the examples above, notice how the siped tire has dozens more grippin g edges.

WILL SIPING ADVERSELY AFFECT MY TIRES?
Siping will not adversely affect your tires or tire’s performance in any way. The tread on your tires retains all of its strength due to the patented spiral cutting process. This process leaves uncut areas known as tie bars keeping your tread strong.

The tread surface on your tire is made up of many smaller surfaces known as “Tread Blocks.” The reason for so many surfaces is especially important when it comes to icy or wet road conditions. The “Tread Blocks” get their gripping power not from their many smooth surfaces, but from the even more numerous sharp surrounding edges. Siping provides more of these gripping edges.

Port of PA appoints new marketing, property chief Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Colleen McAleer has been named marketing and property manager for the Port of Port Angeles. McAleer was formerly a member of the Re/Max Team McAleer real estate agency in Sequim. “Leaving Team McAleer, where I learned the commercial ropes from my dad, Mike, was a tough decision,” McAleer said. “The opportunity to focus on getting some of Clallam County’s 2,770 unemployed back to work won out in the end. It’s been frustrating to watch businesses let employees go because of the recession. This job allows me to fight that head-on.” Said Jeff Robb, the port’s
executive director: “We are ecstatic to have Colleen join the port staff. “Her passion for growing Clallam County is palpable. She brings us a wealth of knowledge and an extremely strong work ethic. “We are confident that Colleen will take our marketing and property departments to new, exciting levels.” McAleer will start with the Port of Port Angeles this month. She will succeed Pat Deja, who is leaving the port to pursue his own consulting ventures.

An Apple iPhone 4S is shown operating with Verizon service.
NEW YORK — Alex Johnson, a freelance video producer in Indianapolis, has a self-esteem problem. Well, not really, but his new iPhone thinks he does. “Why do I cry so much?” he asked it recently in jest. “I don’t know,” it responded. “Frankly, I’ve wondered that myself.” The funny (if slightly unsettling) reply was courtesy of Siri, the new virtual personal-assistant application for the recently released Apple iPhone 4S. Siri recognizes conversational speech and responds, helping with everything from scheduling a meeting to finding a therapist. Siri also talks back. Owners of the new iPhone have been quick to ask it all kinds of odd questions, from the inane to the illicit. Looking for a place to hide a body? Siri provided Johnson with a list of metal foundries, dumps and swamps. Yael Baker, a public relations and media consultant in New York, said
that Siri allowed her to dictate text messages while driving and reminded her not to leave the house without keys or coffee. “I’m so in awe of Siri that I ask her to marry me every day, and her answers have varied from ‘That’s sweet but let’s just be friends,’ to ‘Thanks, Yael, but I’m just here to serve you,”’ she said. “Sometimes I feel I have a true friend tucked away in my phone.”
Not all hyperbole Lighthearted statements like Baker’s are easy to dismiss as hyperbole. But perhaps there’s more to it. In a New York Times article in September, Martin Lindstrom, a consumer advocate and branding consultant, described experiments he conducted in which magnetic resonance imaging found a flurry of brain activity, “which is associated with feelings of love and compassion,” when subjects heard their iPhones ring.

Pacific Rim trade conferees seek freer rules, cooperation The Associated Press
HONOLULU — Pacific Rim leaders gathered for an annual summit in Hawaii pledged Saturday to work together to keep world growth on track through freer trade and cooperation. Much of the work by President Barack Obama and other leaders at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum this weekend is aimed at fending off recession as Europe struggles to resolve its debt crisis. “We have an enormous responsibility for supporting
the wider world, a responsibility that no one nation could seek to carry alone — it can only be borne if we stand shoulder-to-shoulder,” Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said Saturday at the East-West Center, a Honolulu think tank. Leaders were poised to announce the framework of a deal — with many details still to be negotiated in months to come — for a new free trade zone encompassing the United States and eight nations. Japan has signaled it is
interested in joining the negotiations, and the Obama administration hopes others will be wooed as well. U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk ended a meeting of regional trade ministers Friday with praise for Japan’s decision to join the negotiations on the U.S.backed free trade arrangement that is viewed by many in the region as a basic building block for an eventual free trade zone encompassing all of Asia and the Pacific Rim. The so-called TransPacific Partnership is intended to complement other efforts to promote freer trade, and other countries can join if they are willing to meet the very high standards required, Kirk said.

Drilling bid in Arctic refuge bubbles anew By Becky Bohrer
The Associated Press
JUNEAU, Alaska — Two U.S. House Republicans plan to propose legislation to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling as a way to spur domestic energy production and create jobs. House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings of Washington and Rep. Don Young of Alaska said in a joint statement that the “Alaska Energy for American Jobs Act” will be part of a jobs bill recently announced by House Speaker John Boehner. The Alaska measure would allow for oil and gas development on the refuge’s coastal plain, a 1.5 million-acre stretch on ANWR’s northern edge that’s seen as having potential for development but also importance for wildlife.
ica’s energy security is an investment job creation and infrastructure projects that will benefit every American without job destroying tax increases.” But environmentalists say some of the figures used to tout the potential benefit of opening the refuge are exaggerated, and they see this as nothing more than the same push for drilling that’s been made off and on for years.
‘Dead on arrival’
Hastings said that it would open less than 3 percent of the refuge’s 19 million acres and produce billions of barrels of oil and generate billions of dollars in revenues. “Like all forms of energy production, development in ANWR would put tens of thousands of people to work and jumpstart our sluggish economy,” Hastings said in the statement, released Friday. “An investment in Amer-
“I think this legislation is dead on arrival,” said Pamela Miller, Arctic program director for the Northern Alaska Environmental Center. She said it proposes a “false solution to a real crisis.” Lindsey Hajduk, a community organizer with Sierra Club Alaska, agreed, calling the connection to jobs “weak.” “The economy is hurting now, and they’re talking

about development that may happen in years, if not decades,” she said. Alaska’s congressional delegation and governor have pushed for opening ANWR as a way to boost domestic production. Next month, the state plans a huge lease sale involving state lands and waters, with some of those leases adjacent to the federally controlled refuge. While Congress would have to allow drilling in areas like the refuge, Alaska’s Department of Natural Resources has said drilling on nearby state leases could allow developers to draw untapped oil from beneath the federal lands. Young, in committee testimony earlier this year, said ANWR is believed to hold between 6 billion and 16 billion barrels of oil, with about 10 billion barrels estimated to be recoverable. Hajduk said she’s seen estimates as low as 2 billion barrels.

said Friday it no longer made sense for the company to own the Examiner, its only newspaper on the West Coast. The company is now focusing its resources on the Washington, D.C., market and its recent acquisition of The Oklahoman newspaper, he said. “In Black Press we found a publisher with a successful track record, and a strong commitment to highly localized
reporting,” McKibben said. David Black, president of Black Press, said: “We are delighted to become involved with such a strong newspaper. Readership is second to none in San Francisco and on [its] peninsula.” The deal is expected to close on Nov. 30. The two privately held companies did not release the sales price or details of the agreement.
Black Press announced Oct. 31 that it had purchased the PDN from Horvitz Newspapers. Later that day, the company said it separately bought the Sequim Gazette and Forks Forum weekly newspapers from their owner, Brown Maloney. Black Press publishes more than 170 newspapers in North America, including the Akron Beacon-Journal and Honolulu Star-Advertiser.
‘Village’ concept a golden idea Basic needs addressed for resident ‘members’ By Ben Nuckols
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Weaver Shepperson has been blind for nearly 50 years. He’s lived alone since his wife died in 1999 and needs transportation several times a month to visit his doctors. Yet he doesn’t plan to move out of the rowhouse in Washington’s historic Capitol Hill neighborhood where he’s lived since 1955. The 80-year-old is part of a burgeoning movement among senior citizens determined to stay in their homes as long as possible. With the help of nonprofit groups known as “villages,” they’re enjoying many of the perks that residents of retirement or assisted-living communities receive, at a fraction of the cost. Shepperson pays $530 annually for membership in Capitol Hill Village. It enables him to receive a ride to the doctor’s office from the village’s network of volunteers.
Grocery shopping The village also takes care of his grocery shopping. Without it, he says he might have had to move into assisted living. “After the village became available, I stopped thinking about what my other alternatives would be,” he said. Capitol Hill Village is one of the oldest and most robust of the roughly 65 active villages nationwide. It’s been around four years and has more than 350 members. While the village move-
ment is gaining momentum, it’s an option unavailable to the vast majority of elderly Americans. There also are questions about the long-term viability of the organizations. The desire of Americans to live at home instead of moving into retirement or assisted-living communities — known as “aging in place” — has always been strong. AARP surveys consistently show that nearly 90 percent of people 65 and older want to stay in their homes as long as possible. But what if you have to stop driving? Or can’t change light bulbs, maintain the yard or get into the attic? For most people, there are few options beyond relying on relatives or neighbors. This was the dilemma that led a group of friends in Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood to create the village concept. Beacon Hill Village began accepting members in 2002; Capitol Hill Village was one of the first to successfully duplicate the model. In addition to rides and other favors that volunteers can provide, most villages offer what they call a “concierge service” — a connection to a list of pre-screened vendors who can provide discounted services such as plumbing or home repair.
Most in the East About half of the nation’s villages are concentrated in the Northeast and MidAtlantic. Between 10,000 and 13,000 people are members, according to the Village-toVillage Network, which tracks and coordinates villages around the country.
The Associated Press
Irving Lindenblad, 82, rides downstairs assisted by a stair lift at his home in a planned “village” in Washington, D.C. The Washington area is a hotbed for villages, with five within the District of Columbia and three more in the Maryland and Virginia suburbs. Those statistics, though, underscore the limitations of the village concept: Most are located in densely populated, relatively affluent urban or suburban communities. Their members are also overwhelmingly white — more than 90 percent, according to a survey last year by the University of California, Berkeley. Despite their members’ deep pockets, no village has managed to fund itself through membership fees alone.
All rely on donations, grants or, in some cases, the willingness of directors to run them for free. Andrew Scharlach, a Berkeley gerontologist who’s conducted the most extensive academic research on villages, said the village movement remains a boutique phenomenon. But he believes there’s potential for growth, and he doesn’t think memberships — which tend to average between $500 and $700 a year — are cost-prohibitive in most cases. “Two dollars, a dollar and a half a day is conceivably affordable,” Scharlach said. “I think one might con-

sense of humor are creating plenty of followers and websites for them. Marriage propositions like Baker’s are apparently common. For others, the enthusiasm is a more measured. “It’s better than many of my relationships, despite the fact she’s always telling me what to do,” Johnson said.

Beacon Hill, for example, charges $640 for an individual membership and $925 for a household, but low-income members pay $110 for an individual or $160 for a household. About a quarter of Beacon Hill’s members are in the subsidized program, and there’s a small waiting list for inclusion, executive director Judy Willet said. Established villages like Beacon Hill and Capitol Hill have sophisticated fundraising operations, but even Beacon Hill lost members during the recession. Others are on much shakier ground.

Kids’ cholsesterol needs testing, too Early finds stem heart woes later The Associated Press
CHICAGO — Every child should be tested for high cholesterol between ages 9 and 11 so steps can be taken to prevent heart disease later on, a panel of doctors urged in new advice that is sure to be controversial. Until now, major medical groups have suggested cholesterol tests only for children with a family history of early heart disease or high cholesterol and those who are obese or have diabetes or high blood pressure. But studies show that is missing many children with high cholesterol, and the number of them at risk is growing because of the obesity epidemic. The recommendations are in new guidelines from an expert panel appointed by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute and endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics. They also advise diabetes screening every two years starting as early as 9 for children who are overweight and have other risks for Type 2 diabetes, includ-
ing family history. Autopsy studies show children already have signs of heart disease even before they have symptoms. By the fourth grade, 10 percent to 13 percent of U.S. children have high cholesterol, defined as a score of 200 or more. Fats build up in the heart arteries in the first and second decade of life but usually don’t start hardening the arteries until people are in their 20s and 30s, said one of the guideline panel members, Dr. Elaine Urbina, director of preventive cardiology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. “If we screen at age 20, it may be already too late,” she said. “To me it’s not controversial at all. We should have been doing this for years.” Doctors recommend testing between ages 9 and 11 because cholesterol dips during puberty and rises later. The guidelines say that cholesterol drugs likely would be recommended for fewer than 1 percent of kids tested. Most children found to have high cholesterol would be advised to control it with diet and physical activity. And children younger than 10 should not be treated with cholesterol drugs unless they have severe cholesterol problems,
the guidelines say. The guidelines also say doctors should: ■ Take yearly blood pressure measurements for children starting at age 3. ■ Start routine antismoking advice when kids are ages 5 to 9, and advise parents of infants against smoking in the home. ■ Review infants’ family history of obesity and start tracking body mass index, or BMI, a measure of obesity, at age 2. The panel also suggests using more frank terms for kids who are overweight and obese than some government agencies have used in the past. Children whose BMI is in the 85th to 95th percentile should be called overweight, not “at risk for overweight,” and kids whose BMI is in the 95th percentile or higher should be called obese, not “overweight — even kids as young as age 2, the panel said. “Some might feel that ‘obese’ is an unacceptable term for children and parents,” so doctors should “use descriptive terminology that is appropriate for each child and family,” the guidelines recommend. The guidance was released online Friday by The Associated Press the journal Pediatrics and will be presented today at Dr. Elaine Urbina examines Joscelyn Benninghoff, 10, at Children’s an American Heart Associa- Hospital in Cincinnati.

Cutting government spending goes awry Good ideas don’t seem to go very far By Kyung M. Song The Seattle Times
WASHINGTON — If Americans want to truly whack federal spending, they might ask whether taxpayers ought to pay for Washington state apple samples in Chinese grocery aisles. This year, the U.S.
Department of Agriculture doled out $200 million to nearly 70 groups to promote sales of American crops overseas. The grants included $5.2 million to the Washington Apple Commission and $3.6 million to Pear Bureau Northwest. The California Cling Peach Board, the U.S. Dry Bean Council and the Ginseng Board of Wisconsin also got money. The conservative Heritage Foundation, among others, has called for abolishing the export-assistance

program as an unneeded public subsidy for private businesses. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that merely paring the program’s budget back to its 2005 level would save the treasury $531 million over a decade. Yet the spending endures. So do subsidies for rural airports, funding for moneylosing timber sales on Forest Service lands, ethanol tax credits for fuel blenders and hundreds of other federal programs that legislators, budget hawks and taxpayer watchdogs have long called for curtailing or eliminating.
Nov. 23 deadline
faces a Nov. 23 deadline to identify ways to shave the deficit by at least $1.2 trillion over 10 years. But three months after its formation, the committee’s six Republicans and six Democrats remain at an impasse over tax increases and cuts to expensive entitlement programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. That’s despite the fact they have several readymade solutions already in hand. Three previous bipartisan panels plus President Obama have outlined blueprints for reducing the red ink by at least twice as much. As White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters last week, while the supercommittee’s task is “challenging because of the politics, at a substantive level it is not that complicated.”
The difficulty of turning off any federal spigot could help explain why the congressional deficit-reduction supercommittee appears stalemated. Never get far The panel, co-chaired by Simple, perhaps, but not Washington state’s Sen. Patty Murray, D-Bothell, necessarily easy.

Nowhere is that more apparent than with scores of seemingly straightforward budget-tightening ideas that never quite get enacted. Case in point: Four times in the past 20 years, Congress has asked the Government Accountability Office to estimate the benefit of replacing the dollar note with a dollar coin. Four times, the GAO concluded that switching to more durable coins would save money. Its most recent estimate, in March, pegged the savings at $5.5 billion over 30 years. The GAO noted that a successful conversion would require following examples from Canada and the United Kingdom and pulling all the dollar bills from circulation. A host of interest groups objected. They include the National Armored Car Association, which is worried about higher fuel costs from hauling heavier coins, and Crane & Co., which has supplied the U.S. Treasury with currency paper since 1879. Sen. John Kerry, a supercommittee member and a Democrat from Massachusetts, Crane’s home state, also opposes a wholesale switch to the coins. Patrick Knudsen, senior fellow in federal budgetary affairs at the Heritage Foundation, said that even sensible-sounding budget cuts often get waylaid “because every one of these programs have constituents. You can’t just wave a magic wand and make it disappear.”
dreds of proposals to cut spending and raise revenue. Many suggestions are relatively small-bore, such as eliminating funding for abstinence-only education or flood-insurance subsidies for certain older buildings. But the changes in the aggregate add up to more than $1 trillion, in the neighborhood of the supercommittee’s minimum target. Some options, however, are politically fraught. They include the persistent calls to pull the plug on the troubled F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program. The Lockheed Martin multiservice, stealth aircraft is the Pentagon’s biggest procurement deal, with a projected cost of $260 billion for nearly 2,500 planes. According to the CBO, it would be $78 billion cheaper to replace all the F-35s with the Lockheed F-16 fighter jets already in production for the Air Force and with the Boeing F/A-18 for the Navy and the Marines. In September, the conservative National Taxpayers Union and the liberal U.S. Public Interest Research Group jointly endorsed canceling the Joint Strike Fighter as part of their $1 trillion deficitreduction proposal. The Pentagon is highly unlikely to scrap the F-35s. Yet much-less controversial ideas often languish, too. The CBO, for instance, has repeatedly pointed out that the Bureau of Land Management charges bargain rates to Western ranchers to let their animals graze on federal lands. The current BLM fee is $1.35 for forage needed by one animal for one month.

Cheap Internet for poor to be offered The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Cable companies will soon offer Internet service for $9.95 per month to households that have children who are eligible for free school lunches. The offer will start next summer and is part of an initiative the Federal Communications Commission cobbled together to get more U.S. homes connected to broadband. One third, or about 35 million homes, don’t have broadband. That affects people’s ability to educate themselves and find and apply for jobs, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said last week. “The broadband adoption gap in the U.S. is very large, and the costs of digital exclusion are high and getting higher,” Genachowski said. The initiative, called Connect-to-Compete, also includes Microsoft Corp., which pledges to sell PCs with its Office software suite for $250 to low-income families. A firm called Redemtech is offering to sell refurbished computers for $150, including shipping.
For those who can’t afford those prices, Morgan Stanley is pledging to develop a microfinance lending program for community-based financial institutions. People are still signing up for broadband, but growth has slowed in recent years. For those who still haven’t signed up, cost is a minor factor. Most say they’re simply not interested or don’t need it, according to a report by the Commerce Department based on Census Bureau data from last year. To help address the lack of interest and computer skills, Best Buy Co., Microsoft and nonprofits such as America’s Promise Alliance and United Way are promising to support the initiative with training. All major cable companies are standing behind the $9.95 offer, which will be valid for two years. The price doesn’t include taxes, but the companies are pledging to charge nothing for installation or modem rental. The minimum download speed will be 1 megabit per second, less than one tenth of average cable speeds.
Brian Dietz, a spokesman for the National Cable & Telecommunications Association, said it will be up to the individual cable companies to decide what speeds they provide. The NCTA estimates that about 5.5 million homes that don’t have broadband will be eligible for the offer. According to the Commerce Department study, 78 percent of households with school-age children already have broadband, making them far more likely to be connected than the average household. The big broadband gap is between younger and older households: Only 45 percent of people older than 64 have broadband. Black and Hispanic households were less likely to have broadband, even when adjusting for income, according to the study. Comcast Corp., the largest cable company and the country’s largest Internet service provider, is already offering broadband to $9.95 to low-income families, with a 1.5 megabit per second download speed. It offered to do that so regulators would let it take control of NBC Universal.
Young-old wealth gap wider than ever before The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The wealth gap between younger and older Americans has stretched to the widest on record, worsened by a prolonged economic downturn that has wiped out job opportunities for young adults and saddled them with housing and college debt. The typical U.S. household headed by a person age 65 or older has a net worth 47 times greater than a household headed by someone under 35, according to an analysis of census data released last week. While people typically accumulate assets as they age, this gap is now more than double what it was in 2005 and nearly five times the 10-to-1 disparity a
quarter-century ago, after adjusting for inflation. The analysis by the Pew Research Center reflects the impact of the economic downturn, which has hit young adults particularly hard. More are pursuing college or advanced degrees, taking on debt as they wait for the job market to recover. Others are struggling to pay mortgage costs on homes now worth less than when they were bought in the housing boom. The report, coming out before the Nov. 23 deadline for a special congressional committee to propose $1.2 trillion in budget cuts over 10 years, casts a spotlight on a government safety net that has buoyed older Americans on Social
Security and Medicare amid wider cuts to education and other programs. Complaints about wealth inequality, high unemployment and student debt also have been front and center at Occupy Wall Street protests around the country. The median net worth of households headed by someone 65 or older was $170,494. That is 42 percent more than in 1984, when the Census Bureau first began measuring such data broken down by age. The median net worth for the younger-age households was $3,662, down by 68 percent from a quartercentury ago, according to the Pew analysis.

Music firm sold LOS ANGELES — EMI Group Ltd., the iconic British music company that is home to The Beatles, Coldplay and Katy Perry, is being split and sold for $4.1 billion. The deals will open EMI’s buyers, Universal Music and Sony/ATV, to regulatory scrutiny as they increase their dominance of the music industry. Universal Music Group said Friday that it will pay 1.2 billion pounds ($1.9 billion) for the recording division, joining Universal artists including Lady Gaga and Eminem with EMI superstars such as David Guetta and Lady Antebellum. A consortium led by Sony/ATV reached a separate deal to pay $2.2 billion for EMI’s publishing division. Sony/ATV, a joint venture between Sony Corp. and the Michael Jackson estate, is a 38 percent partner in the consortium. The other parties were not immediately known.

A ray of hope? THERE ARE SIGNS the economic picture might be getting better for some Americans — which means businesses could start working harder to get us to start spending again. At least, that’s what companies should be doing, according to a new J.P. Morgan report, “Light At the End of The Tunnel: Getting Ready for the Return of the U.S. Consumer.” U.S. consumer balance sheets have recovered to levels not seen in several years, the report said. The brokerage cited glimmers of hope in the labor market and consumer debt levels that have the potential to “re-energize the consumer.” And household savings have increase by 23 percent since the end of 2006, it said.

The Wild Olympics plan will permanently protect these natural amenities vital to our economic future. But the plan also shows great sensitivity toward private property and the commercial timber base. Most public land considered in the proposal is already off limits to logging. It gives timber landowners an option to sell certain lands to the Park, but only if they want to. A healthier timber industry adding more value locally can contribute toward the restoration of our area’s economic vitality. But we also need new companies with new ideas, new value-added jobs and new sources of raw material. With the Wild Olympics plan, we can have both.
