Jefferson turning 90 PAâ€™s oldest operating school will host tea, fair Friday BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Jefferson Elementary School, the oldest school still operating in the Port Angeles School District, will celebrate 90 years of education at an Alumni Tea and Spring Fair on Friday night. The 90th anniversary celebration will kick off with the tea for student and staff alumni at 4:30 p.m., followed by the Spring Fair from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., at the school at 218 E. 12th St. The Spring Fair will feature a sock hop in a hot air balloon, dinner, a carni-
val, and activities for both children and adults. At least one alumna who began the first grade at the school in 1922 â€” the year the school opened â€” will be present at the tea.
Today, the exterior still looks much the same, but the new interior entrance is beautiful, she said. Early teachers couldnâ€™t be married, and her favorite teacher, Violet Neil, had to quit midyear after she wed, Faires said. Faires has had four generations of family at Jefferson. Her mother at one time worked as a cook at the school; her daughter, Theresa Schmid, was a student and currently teaches there; and her granddaughter, now a college student, also is an alumna.
Member of first class Margie Faires, 90, of Port Angeles was a member of the first class of students to attend Jefferson from first through sixth grade. â€œItâ€™s hard to imagine the way it was. It was all new. The school was wonderful,â€? Faires said.
PORT ANGELES â€” Clallam County sheriffâ€™s deputies were on the lookout Wednesday for a man who broke into a Deer Park Road home the day before and fled after the homeowner surprised him and grappled with him. The homeowner told deputies that he came home at about noon Tuesday and found a stranger inside rifling through his belongings, said Sgt. Randy Pieper of the Sheriffâ€™s Office. The homeowner, William Seeley, struggled with the man, who broke free and ran into the woods around the home, Pieper said, and the homeowner called emergency dispatchers at 9-1-1 for help. Seeley was not hurt, and nothing appeared to be missing from the house in the 2600 block of Deer Park Road, Pieper added. â€œIt appeared the suspect was disturbed before anything was taken,â€? Pieper said.
The break-in prompted a 2Â˝-hour search by deputies, Border Patrol agents and a police dog from the Port Angeles Police Department. Jag, a police dog with handler Cpl. Kevin Miller, lost the scent of the man at Lisel Lane, which intersects with Deer Park Road, Pieper said. â€œ[Weâ€™re] not actively searching the area, but we still have an active investigation going at this point,â€? Pieper said. Pieper said the man appeared to have entered the raised first floor of the home by using a stepladder to access a rear window. A neighbor living across the street from the burglarized home told police a man appearing out of breath had run up to her home and asked for a ride, which she refused, Pieper said. The man, who is white and estimated to be between 25 and 27 years old, was described as standing between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10 inches tall and being stocky, weighing about 160 pounds, Pieper said.

Poetry in motion: Writer inspires dance Walla Walla company performs Saturday at PAâ€™s Carver festival BY DIANE URBANI
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Of all of the inaugural Raymond Carver Festival events to come during the next two weeks, Vicki Lloidâ€™s is probably the most unexpected. On Saturday night, the third night of the festival, brings the Vicki Lloid Dancersâ€™ performance, inspired by Carverâ€™s love poems. â€œEven So . . .â€? is the name of the dance and theater piece, to start at 7 p.m. in the Little Theater at Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd. As with nearly all of the festival events, admission is free.
Read one of Carverâ€™s passages written near the end of his life in Port Angeles, and the title of this dance starts Carver to make sense: And did you get what you wanted from this life, even so? I did. And what did you want? To call myself beloved, to feel myself beloved on the earth.
These words are a point of liftoff for dancers Nik Hagen and Katie Hardy, who with actors Hensley Fradkin and Michael Blackwood tell the story of Carver and his wife, Tess Gallagher: their years together in Port Angeles, his death from cancer and the love that transcends his loss.
Ode to lasting love Lloid, in an interview this week from her home in Walla Walla, said she created â€œEven So . . .â€? as an ode to that lasting love and as a tribute to Carverâ€™s style. Lloid is a dancer and choreographer with decades of experience who performed in New York City before coming west to teach at Whitman College Nik Hagen and Katie Hardy, members of the Vicki Lloid Dancers of and other schools.
Walla Walla, rehearse â€œEven So . . .,â€? a dance inspired by the
CARVER/A4 words of celebrated writer Raymond Carver, who died in 1988.
