In other words, what the Peninsula had this year. “It looks like a good bet to get your annual ski pass,” said Cliff Mass, a professor of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington. Mass said temperatures should be cooler than normal this coming year, especially after Jan. 1.
But this winter will probably not be as cold as last winter, Mass said, when there was a stronger La Niña. And it would be unusual for the new La Niña weather pattern to extend deep into summer, as it did this year with cool temperatures until August. Turn

OLYMPIA — Before leading a state delegation on a European trade mission in June, Gov. Chris Gregoire downplayed the price of the journey by saying it would cost less than $40,000.

The price of security alone was more than Gregoire’s initial estimate, although it still came in well under the totals for delegations from other states. The total bill for the governor’s office, her Washington State Patrol security and aides from the Department of Commerce reached more than $98,000.
That doesn’t account for the base salaries of workers who spent their time overseas or the expenses of other travelers with ties to state government, such as representatives from the University of Washington and Shoreline Community College. The Governor’s Office doesn’t typically include security costs when estimating expenses, which explains why her initial projection doesn’t match numbers compiled by AP, said Gregoire spokesman Cory Curtis.
Seal killed, skinned near marine center By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — Marine mammal scientists are looking for clues into the beheading and skinning of a seal pup in a parking area of Fort Worden State Park last week. Ironically, the carcass was discovered near the Port Townsend Marine Science Center, which is devoted to the research and preservation of such sea creatures as harbor seals. “I was shocked when I saw this,” said Chrissy McLean, marine science center program coordinator who is also principal investigator for the East Jefferson County Marine Mammal Stranding Network. “I had never seen anything like this before.”
The pup’s carcass was reported by a beach walker early Wednesday morning to McLean. “Part of my job is to investigate how animals die, and it hurts to see when an animal dies from unnecessary causes.”
Possibly overnight McLean said the incident happened sometime between 3:30 p.m. Tuesday and 8:45 a.m. Wednesday in a beach parking lot near the Fort Worden pier. The animal did not die of natural causes or suffer at the hands of a predator, McLean said. It was treated in a way that suggested human intervention, Charlie Bermant/Peninsula Daily News she added. Port Townsend Marine Science Center program coordinator Chrissy McLean removes the Turn to Seal/A8 “crime scene” tape from where a baby seal was decapitated and skinned last week.

PETER GENT, 69, whose 1973 novel North Dallas Forty became a sports movie classic depicting the drugs, sex, greed and self-preservation of the professional football game, died Friday. Mr. Gent had an unlikely five-season career playing for Dallas before penning the story loosely Mr. Gent based on in 1974 the Cowboys. It later became a movie, nestled between comedy and tragedy, showing the drinking and drugging by thinly disguised football characters.
Peninsula Daily News PENINSULA POLL
Mr. Gent, who died Friday at his boyhood home in western Michigan, seemed pleased with how the movie turned out but usually didn’t watch it years later, his son said Saturday. Mr. Gent went on to write several more books. “He was just a brilliant guy who had a lot of other interests. He read a lot and loved history,” Carter Gent said. “Watching sports didn’t do much for him.” He said his father died from a pulmonary illness at his home in Bangor where he’d lived since 1990. Peter Gent was a star basketball player at Michigan State University in the 1960s, and was drafted by the NBA’s Baltimore Bullets after averaging 21 points a game in his final college season. Although he didn’t play football in college, Gent got an NFL tryout with the Cowboys in 1964, and spent five seasons with the team. “He had heard you’d get $500 just for showing up,” his son said. “The wide receivers coach liked him.
He was long and lean and had good hands.” Gent wrote a sequel, North Dallas After Forty, as well as other books, including a memoir about coaching his son’s baseball team, The Last Magic Summer: A Season With My Son. __________ JOE TOFFLEMIRE, 46, a former Seattle Seahawks center, has died of heart failure, according to his brother, Paul Tofflemire. The SpokesmanReview of Spokane reported that Mr. Tofflemire died Tuesday at a Mr. Tofflemire hospital in in 1994 Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, after being found unconscious in his Post Falls home. Mr. Tofflemire was the Seahawks second-round pick in the 1989 draft. His injury-plagued career lasted until 1995. His 33 appearances were concentrated mostly in 1990 and 1992.

1936 (75 years ago) With two units out of three proposed for the Ediz Hook Recreational Project — a small-boat marina and road paving — receiving presidential approval from the Roosevelt administration, organization of a concerted drive for matching funds was completed at a meeting in Port Angeles. A large percentage of the money has been allocated from Works Progress Administration funds, but $4,500 needs to be raised by the Ediz Hook Recreational Association for a clubhouse building and marina dredging. Herbert Pollock, Clallam County engineer, is in charge of plans for the project and the city of Port Angeles is sponsoring it.
1961 (50 years ago) Lack of log supply and higher prices due to Japanese export sales have reduced Merrill & Ring Western Lumber Co. mill production by two shifts a week. This amounts to 52 man days.
“If the trend continues, we may have to go down to a one-shift operation,” said mill manager A.H. “Gus” Haley. “We can land lumber in Japan cheaper than they can buy logs,” Haley said, “but they are not interested.”
1986 (25 years ago) While the Port Townsend City Council is considering what to do about vicious dogs, a police officer yesterday had to draw his weapon to ward off an angry pit bull terrier. The council will decide Oct. 7 whether changes are needed in the animal control ordinance to control dangerous dogs, Councilwoman Jean Camfield said. Animal control officials estimated that there are 35 to 40 pit bulls in Jefferson County. “Any dog potentially could bite somebody, and the owner is more guilty than the dog, I think, in a lot of these instances,” said Port Townsend Police Chief Bob Hinton, “because of how they handle the dog, how they train them and take care of them.”

Troops to Mexico? MANCHESTER, N.H. — Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry says he is open
to sending American troops to Mexico to help battle drug cartels. Perry, the Texas governor, likens the situation to Colombia, where the government accepted American military support in battling the war on drugs. Perry says the current violence may require similar military action. He often calls for more National Guard troops to help protect the Mexican border and stem the flow of illegal immigration. But Saturday’s comments go further. They indicate he’s open to deepening America’s military involvement across the border. Perry’s comments came at a Saturday afternoon reception at the home of New Hampshire Republican gubernatorial candidate Ovide Lamontagne. A spokesman later clarified that Perry is open to all options to cooperate with Mexico.

Drone targets militant linked to plots in U.S. The Associated Press
CAIRO — A Saudi militant believed killed in the U.S. drone strike in Yemen constructed the bombs for the al-Qaida branch’s most notorious attempted attacks — including the underwear-borne explosives intended to a down a U.S. aircraft, and a bomb carried by his own brother intended to assassinate a Saudi prince. The death of Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri would make the Friday drone strikes on a convoy in the central deserts of Yemen one of the most effective single blows in the U.S. campaign to take out alQaida’s top figures. The strike also killed Anwar al-Awlaki, a Yemeni-American cleric who had been key to recruiting for the militant group and a Pakistani-American, Samir Khan, who was a top English-language propagandist. But Christopher Boucek, a scholar who studies Yemen and al-Qaida, said al-Asiri’s death would “overshadow” that of the two Americans due to his operational importance to al-Qaida in
the Arabian Peninsula, the Yemen-based group that is considered the most active branch of the terror network. Late Friday, two U.S. officials said intelligence indicated alAsiri was among those killed in the strike. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because al-Asiri’s death has not officially been confirmed.
Two attempts against U.S. The 29-year-old al-Asiri was one of the first Saudis to join the Yemen-based al-Qaida branch and became its key bombmaker, designing the explosives in two attempted attacks against the United States. His fingerprint was found on the bomb hidden in the underwear of a Nigerian man accused of trying to blow up Northwest Airlines Flight 253 over Detroit on Christmas Day 2009, according to U.S. counterterrorism officials. The attack failed because the would-be bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab botched detonating the explosives, ending
up only burning himself before being wrestled away by passengers. The explosives used in that bomb were chemically identical to those hidden inside two printers that were shipped from Yemen last year, bound for Chicago and Philadelphia in a plot claimed by al-Qaida. The bombs were intercepted in England and Dubai. In perhaps his most ruthless operation, al-Asiri turned his younger brother, Abdullah, into a human bomb in a 2009 attempt to kill Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, the kingdom’s top counterterrorism official and son of its interior minister. Abdullah volunteered for the suicide mission, asking to replace another militant named to carry it out, according to an account in Sada al-Malahem, an Arabic-language Web magazine issued by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. While talking to the prince, Abdullah blew himself up. The prince, however, escaped with only injuries.

The car of a man who survived for six days after the vehicle plunged 200 feet off a remote mountain is recovered in Castaic, Calif., on Friday.
2 missing men, 2 crashes at same site; outcomes differ By John Rogers
The Associated Press
SANTA CLARITA, Calif. — Two separate missing persons cases. Two families wracked with worry for days. Two wrecked cars, nearly on top of each other. One man alive, the other dead. The fates of 67-year-old David Lavau and a man believed to be 88-year-old Melvin Gelfand met at the bottom of the same rugged ravine, 200 feet below a curvy stretch of mountain road where both men had lost control of their vehicles and crashed, authorities said Friday. It appeared to be sheer coincidence that led the men to end up in exactly the same spot of the Angeles National Forest some 50 miles north of Los Angeles. Lavau lived in the ravine for six days, eating bugs, leaves and drinking creek water to survive, with Gelfand’s badly decomposed body in another car only a few feet away. Lavau was rescued Thursday by his three adult children, who searched a highway between their father’s home in northern Los Angeles County and Ventura County, where a detective told them Lavau’s bank and cellphone
records had placed him. They drove slowly along the mountain road, stopping to peer over the treacherous drop-offs and call out for their father. Near him they found a body in a Toyota Camry that belonged to Gelfand, who had been reported missing on Sept. 14, more than a week before Lavau’s disappearance. “I love my kids. Dead man was not my fault. Love, Dad,” read a note Lavau scrawled on his dusty trunk, his family told the Los Angeles Times.
To be released soon Lavau was at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital with three rib fractures, a dislocated shoulder, a broken arm and fractures in his back. He was expected to be released in three to four days after surgery on his shoulder and to make a full recovery. Dr. Ranbir Singh, the hospital’s trauma director, said Lavau told him he was driving to his home when he was temporarily blinded by the headlights of an oncoming car. He braked, but failed to gain traction. The car flipped and plunged down the embankment.
The body found in the other car could not be visually identified due to decomposition, but Gelfand’s son-in-law Will Matlack said the family had been contacted by the coroner’s office, which was trying to match fingerprints or dental records to make a positive identification. Lavau’s children had reported him missing Sept. 23, though they were not certain when exactly he had disappeared. Parker said by the next day the sheriff’s detective assigned to the case turned up bank records showing Lavau had made a purchase in Oxnard in Ventura County, and mobile phone records showed he had been in the area. The children then organized themselves into a search party. “We stopped at every ravine and looked over every hill, and then my brother got out of the car, and we kept screaming, and the next thing we heard Dad saying, ‘Help, help,’ and there he was,” Lisa Lavau told NBC’s “Today” show. Gelfand, a veteran of World War II, simply disappeared, leaving no clues. How he ended up 50 miles north of Los Angeles in his own car remains a mystery.

CONSTRUCTION WORKERS, MINERS and food service workers top the list of occupations that smoke the most, according to a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Experts say it might have as much to do with lower education levels as the jobs themselves. Traits linked to higher smoking rates and seen in the employees include being younger, having fewer years of education and making less money. Also, some people who work outdoors are less likely to face the kind of indoor smoking bans seen in white-collar workplaces.
AFTER YEARS OF trying, Congress is taking another stab at punishing China for what many see as currency manipulation to keep its exports to the United States cheap and make American exports more expensive. On Monday, the Senate will take up legislation to impose higher duties on Chinese products to offset the perceived advantage China gets from undervaluing its currency. Supporters say the bill would narrow the trade deficit and bring home jobs that have been lost to Chinese producers. Foes include American-based multinational corporations.
AN ULTRALIGHT PLANE crashed into a Ferris wheel at a rural festival in eastern Australia on Saturday, trapping two children on the ride and two adults in the aircraft for 90 minutes. There were no serious injuries. The Cheetah S200 carrying two men did not topple the Ferris wheel when it hit the frame near the top on the first morning of an annual threeday festival at Old Bar, a coastal village 220 miles north of Sydney. A 9-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl were trapped in a carriage at the top of the wheel. Rescuers used a crane to free the four.
THE FRENCH PRESS is calling it the most expensive divorce settlement in the country’s history: A court has ordered the Aga Khan to pay his exwife $80 million. That’s in the ballpark of what Madonna paid Guy Ritchie when their marriage ended. The diva reportedly shelled out between $76 million and $92 million. The Aga Khan, who is a billionaire and spiritual leader to 20 million Muslims, married Gabriele Thyssen, a German princess, in 1998. They divorced several years later after having a son. A French court of appeals ordered the payment last week.

Federal fund for schools, roads expires Support was meant to offset logging restriction effects By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
A federal funding stream that has supported road maintenance and schools on the North Olympic Peninsula for over a decade is about to run dry. The Secure Rural Schools Act expired Friday. Final payments will be distributed among counties in 41 states in December and January. Unless the act is renewed by Congress, Clallam and Jefferson counties and their school districts will be left with another hole to fill in their budgets. For the counties, that means less road maintenance. Jefferson County received about $1 million this year for roads, while Clallam County was allotted $531,194. “We can’t keep doing what we always have done because the revenue is not coming in anymore,” said Clallam County Administrator Jim Jones.
Logging restrictions The 2000 act, which has been phased out over the past four years, was intended to offset the financial hit from logging restrictions put in place in the early 1990s, and the amount allocated depends on the size of federal forest land in each county. Jefferson County Administrator Philip Morley and Jones said the impacts will be noticeable. “It means both less new projects and less maintenance,” Morley said. In Jefferson County, roads are being chip-sealed every 20 years instead of every 10; Clallam County is doing 20 miles of road paving a year instead of 50. The impact for Penin-
sula schools is less direct. The state has deducted the same amount they receive through the act, meaning, as Sequim School District Business Manager Brian Lewis put it, “It’s a wash as far as we’re concerned.” But school administrators say they are still concerned because it seems unlikely that the state will be able to make up the difference. “That would be a concern because they utilize that money in their budget,” said Port Angeles School District Superintendent Jane Pryne. For this school year, the act allotted $474,000 to the Port Townsend School District, $185,000 to the Sequim School District, and $258,000 to Port Angeles School District. Administrators with the other Peninsula school districts could not be reached for comment Friday.
On Capitol Hill Some efforts are being raised in Congress to reauthorize the act, including renewing payments at a lower level and allowing more logging on national forests. But without any assurances the money will be there in the end, administrators say they have to expect the worse. School officials “just don’t know what’s going to happen,” said Amy Khile, Port Townsend School District business manager.

Corrections officer who shot inmate back on job Incident resulted in death of Clallam Bay prisoner By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
CLALLAM BAY — The Clallam Bay Corrections Center officer who shot and killed an inmate attempting to escape in June returned to his post last week after being cleared of the shooting. Sgt. Brad Hatt returned Monday to his job overseeing the maximum-security prison’s armory after spending about two months as an administrative assistant, said prison Superintendent Ron Fraker. The Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office determined Aug. 15 the shooting was justified, he said, but Hatt couldn’t return to the job until cleared by a psychologist and the state Attorney General’s Office. Ernest Barker, the corrections officer taken hostage during the escape attempt, remains on leave pending the completion of a mental evaluation, Fraker said.
Fence rammed Hatt fatally shot Kevin Newland on June 29 with a 12-gauge shotgun as the inmate rammed the perimeter fence with a forklift. Newland, a convicted murderer, ignored a warning shot and verbal commands, according to prison officials and the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office,
which investigated the incident. Another inmate, Dominick Maldonado, who took Barker hostage, surrendered after Newland was shot. “They did a tremendous job in a very critical, tense situation,” Fraker said of his staff. Maldonado was transferred to the Stafford Creek Corrections Center near Aberdeen after the incident. He is serving a 163-year sentence for a 2005 shooting rampage at Tacoma Mall that wounded seven people.
Charges considered Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney Deb Kelly said in an email Friday that she has not decided whether to file escape charges against him. According to the Sheriff’s Office, Newland paused after Hatt fired a warning shot into the ground from the other side of the fence and made eye contact with the officer. Yet he rammed the fence one more time and breached it before Hatt fatally shot him. The report from the Sheriff’s Office references statements Newland made during his trial for murdering Spokane teenager Jamie Lynn Drake in 2006 about suicide. It came to no conclusion as to whether that influ-

Since the escape attempt, the prison has reinforced the perimeter fences around vehicle gates with “heavyduty” bollards, Fraker said. Some state-mandated security changes are also being enacted at Clallam Bay, though they are in response to the death of Monroe Correctional Complex Officer Jayme Biendl in January. As of Nov. 1, officers will be required to take their breaks at their posts. The prison has also ordered radios that come with distress buttons and is providing sergeants with pepper spray. Fraker said those changes, if enacted earlier, could have helped prevent the escape attempt or at least made it more difficult.

most part, kept two officers in that area at all times,” Fraker said. Newland and Maldonado were among the 104 inmates working in the prison’s industries and laundry areas when the escape attempt occurred. Maldonado took Barker hostage by holding a pair of scissors to his throat once Barker’s co-worker left for their break. Industries Assistant Supervisor Denny Goudie saw what was happening and verbally sounded an alarm, according to the sheriff’s report. Newland hit Goudie before the assistant supervisor broke free and notified the communication’s center of the incident. After retrieving keys for a forklift chained to a wall from Barker, Newland rammed through a roll-up door and the two perimeter fences before being shot. Fraker said the prison still has two officers supervising the industries area, though the number of inmates working there has been reduced to around 80. That’s mainly due to new state requirements regarding which offenders can perform the work, which pays up to $1.60 an hour, he said. “We’re going to try to keep it fairly close to that number just because it’s more manageable,” Fraker said.

enced his actions that day. Fraker and Ron Cameron, chief criminal deputy with the Sheriff’s Office, said there’s no indication that Newland attempted the escape to impel officers to shoot him. “Who knows what was going through his mind,” Cameron said, adding that the inmates didn’t leave any notes explaining their actions.

Jamestown Excavation workers on Thursday carve out a site adjacent to the Holiday Inn Express & Conference Center for a future Black Bear Diner.
Site of Black Bear Diner readied, financing sought Location to be Holiday Inn Express plaza in Sequim By Jeff Chew
Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — Ground preparation work has begun on the future site of a Black Bear Diner, part of the Holiday Inn Express & Conference Center plaza. But the inn’s owner said financing still must be secured before the restaurant’s walls go up. Blyn-based Jamestown Excavation was using a shovel and dump trucks last week to level sites for the future restaurant and parking lot at 1471 E. Washington St., just west of Simdars Road. “We are doing some site work before the rains come to get a jump on it,” said Bret Wirta, owner and chief executive officer of Wirta Hospitality Worldwide, the company that runs the Holiday Inn Express. Wirta has been reluctant to say when the restaurant would be built on the 0.78-
acre site because of financing issues he said were related to the dour economy. “We are hopefully confident that we can be able to cement a lot of issues with the bank. I think, personally, we are very close.” The restaurant would be the third Black Bear homestyle food franchise in Washington state; the others are in Olympia and Federal Way. “It will employ 50 people, with some management jobs, so there will be some really good jobs,” Wirta said. In addition to Washington, Black Bear Diner has nearly 50 eating establishments in Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado and Iowa.
Building permit Wirta originally took out a city building permit, tentatively valued at $621,812.45, for a 5,000-square-foot restau-
rant in late 2008, records show. A building permit extension was later granted until the end of the year. The 125-seat restaurant and 77-room Holiday Inn Express will function independently or work together for the 250-seat conference center guests as needed, Wirta has said. The separate hotel and restaurant sites will share am existing pond and are linked with a bridge. Wirta said they will be linked electronically, too. For example, hotel guests will be able to charge a meal with their room keys while restaurant guests can reserve a room while enjoying their dinner. The restaurant’s large kitchen is designed to support busy meal times while at the same time catering hotel conference functions. A full range of buffetstyle food options will be
available for business conferences, wedding receptions or reunions, according to Wirta.

Question: Why pay bank fees? Pain of change weighed against avoiding ATM, debit card charge By Ron Lieber and Ann Carrns

Now, Mass said, forecasters can see a band of rain coming from 240 miles away. The new coastal radar is the first of its kind in the nation, said Dana Felton, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. The new coastal radar won’t have much effect on longer-term forecasts, which rely on satellites, Felton added, but will improve the accuracy of shorterterm predictions.

Paris: ‘No frills,’ Gregoire says about visit Continued from A1 He said the state is also disputing Gregoire’s hotel room expense and expects the rate to be below the $410 that the State Department considers standard for Paris. The meal costs are in line with those same federal guidelines, Curtis said. Curtis also pointed out a variety of ways the trip was organized to keep costs down: The hotel was comparatively cheap because it was far from the air show, and the delegation used public transit to get to the event. The schedule was designed to fit as many events as possible in the shortest period, including one two-day span that included meetings with more than 100 executives. Private funds covered the cost of the delegation’s booth at the air show. Other states racked up higher bills: South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley spent $157,746 in taxpayer money on her trip to France. In North Carolina, state Secretary of Commerce Keith Crisco and six members of his staff spent about $112,228.

She said the state has to aggressively market itself to attract new customers. “We do it with extremely limited budgets and strategic spending,” Gregoire said. “No frills, but a lot of rolled up sleeves and onthe-ground work to gain immeasurable exposure.”
Day after budget cuts Gregoire began her June trade trip just a day after signing a new state budget that included massive cuts to education, including proposed reductions of teacher salaries of 1.9 percent. The outlook for state government has grown worse since then, as lawmakers now face another budget shortfall of $1.3 billion, and Gregoire has asked agencies to prepare for cuts as high as 10 percent. Gregoire has called for a special session of the 2011 Legislature in late November to address the budget shortfall. The Democrat has said

state’s on Page A1 and this page, here are some other examples: ■ South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley spent $157,746 in taxpayer money on her trip to France, which was followed by a stop in Germany. Haley, a Republican who touts herself as a fiscal conservative, was accompanied by her husband, 11 staffers and a two-person security detail. ■ North Carolina Secretary of Commerce Keith Crisco and six members of his staff spent about $112,228 on travel and expenses. The receipts obtained by the AP show Crisco hosted a party of five at the seafood restaurant Le Ballon des Ternes for a $653 meal of veal medallions, prawns and snails, washed down with four bottles of wine. ■ Connecticut taxpayers spent about $88,500 for two staff members to host a booth at the show. ■ Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer can-
celed plans to attend because of wildfires in her state, although three Commerce Authority officials still traveled at a cost of $14,716. ■ In Mississippi, Republican Gov. Haley Barbour sent his chief of staff and five employees of a state-supported development group to Paris at a cost to taxpayers of $105,983, after deducting $40,000 in corporate sponsorships. ■ Oklahoma sent four state officials to the show and spent a total of $83,717, records show. As in the other states, Oklahoma Commerce Secretary Dave Lopez was unable to cite concrete results from the trip. ■ New York’s Department of Economic Development did not respond to requests for its expenses, though a list of exhibitors from the air show indicates the state hosted a booth.

he wouldn’t have been able to get otherwise. Julin said his company managed to establish a business relationship with Air France during the trip, and he expects the ground-
work laid at the air show to double the company’s international business in the next two years. “From my personal standpoint, it was definitely a benefit,” Julin said.

RECORDS SHOW OFFICIALS from at least 14 states jetted across the Atlantic in June to attend the Paris Air Show at Le Bourget. The annual summertime exposition in France is among the world’s premier events for the aerospace industry, and officials in several states said gathering offered a unique opportunity to recruit potential employers. However, a review of receipts obtained by The Associated Press through an open records request found no direct evidence the taxpayer money spent in Paris resulted in the creation of new jobs back home. The sizable state delegations were often accompanied by officials from county and municipal economic development groups, which are typically also supported by taxpayer money.

Peninsula Daily News for Sunday, October 2, 2011
New medical codes cause dizziness GOOD NEWS FOR doctors! Under federal mandate, they will no longer be forced to pick from 18,000 numerical claim codes when filing an insurance claim for an office visit. Now, the number of W. Bruce claim codes will be 140,000. Cameron That’s a 678 percent increase in codes, which right there should end our unemployment problems in this country — every able-bodied person will be spending all their time looking up code numbers. As a result of these refined codes, there will also be a 678 percent increase in the quality of medical care, which I am sure we’re all in favor of. For example — and I kid you not — one of the codes is for “burns due to water skis on fire.”
Heck, did we even know this was a problem before? Now, due to these refined codes, we can stop the epidemic of burning water skis in midslalom. “Quick, throw some water on those water skis before they send someone to the hospital!” I spent some time reading the database of these refined codes. I’m trying to memorize them so that when I call the doctor, I don’t have to waste time explaining what has happened to me, I can just say, “Doc, it’s a case of Y93G1,” and she’ll say, “Get to the ER, stat!” Y93G1 is, of course, “injured while crocheting.” And “stat” is a word that means, “I am a doctor, so I don’t say ‘fast.’” Now, anyone who has ever suffered from a Y93G1 can tell you that if your treatment is nonstat, you could conceivably die from it, though no one can fully explain how. It’s crochet and should be left up to the professionals — that’s
all you need to know. Strangely, while there are these codes for crochet, there are none for croquet. So if someone brains you with a croquet mallet, you won’t be able to get treatment because there isn’t a code. In my opinion, if you’re lying there with a croquet head injury, you’d better drag yourself to some water skis and set them on fire. Neither is there, as far as I can determine, a code for injuring yourself while crocheting on flaming water skis — that would be silly. Not at all silly, though, is W6132 — “struck by a chicken.” Let’s say you’re walking under a tree full of chickens who got up there by, oh, I don’t know, a ladder or something, and all of a sudden one of them falls and gives you a W6132 right on the head. That can really hurt, especially if the chicken is frozen. During my search, I found 150 codes for things that can go
wrong with your lips, including corrosion and ugly stuff growing on them, but not, oddly, kissing the wrong person at the office holiday party. Included in the 150 is “Laceration with foreign body of lip, sequela.” In medical terms, sequela is “bad outcome,” so apparently without sequela you can lacerate your lips with a foreign body and it will turn out OK — like, perhaps your cut lip prevents you from kissing the wrong person at the office holiday party. Or maybe you kiss her anyway, and she hits you with a chicken. Or perhaps she’s been trained in crochet, in which case she’s going to Y93G1 you right into the hospital. The point is, no matter what’s wrong with your lips or your chickens or your holiday sweater, there’s a medical code for it, so you’ll be OK stat. Where you got hurt is also part of the code, as in Y9272 — injured in a chicken coop.
(Hey, it’s not funny, I was hit by a falling chicken!) Or let’s say you walked into a lamppost — that’s a W2202XA. And if you got up and walked into the lamppost again, that’s a W2202XD. I’m not sure where this is happening to you, but if you keep walking into the same lamppost over and over, I’m pretty sure your problems started with too much cheer at the holiday party. Or, as your doctor would say, too much F1092 at the party, leading to you kissing the wrong person and getting your lips lacerated with a sharp blow from a chicken. It doesn’t matter, though — you’ll get treatment stat, because there’s a code for that.

But the final quarter of the game looked like a war zone, with four ambulances and every medical person on the field engaged and lives on the line. At least two Sequim players suffered very significant concussions at this game. I have asked the Sequim School District to implement a schoolwide concussion program to allow concussion testing for their student-athletes and to create a sideline protocol for a very long time. With the help of our advisers from Harvard, Children’s National Medical Center and Boston University, we help organizations all over the country develop these strategies, which costs them nothing. To date, the Sequim School District has not acted upon, or outright refused (citing legal reasons), all three requests. The district used to be blind to the issue of sportsrelated concussions through ignorance. They are now making a conscious choice to ignore a

Six eastern Clallam County farms opened their fields and barn doors for six hours to the 14th annual Harvest Celebration Farm Tours on Saturday. And then on Saturday evening, a banquet with locally grown food and concert by the country rock band Deadwood Revival finished the celebration of all things agricultural. Each farm on the tour offered different activities, including educational displays, petting zoos, live music, tractor rides, arts and craft activities, contests and demonstrations. Proceeds from the Harvest Celebration Farm Tours go to support the work of Friends of the Fields, now a division of the North Olympic Land Trust, in its efforts to preserve local farmland and support sustainable local farming.

Earning way on the field SO MUCH FOR any charges of nepotism. As Sequim junior Jack Matt Wiker proved in Schubert Friday night’s win over North Mason, there’s a reason why he’s a featured player in the Wolves’ spread offense. And it has nothing to do with who’s the head coach . . . other than genetics. “That’s probably one of the better quarters I’ve seen from a Sequim kid in a long time,” said Wolves coach and father Erik Wiker. “It was quite amazing what he did.” For the first 13 minutes against the Bulldogs, he put on a show. Leading Sequim on five straight touchdown drives, the 5-foot-11, 195pound junior displayed exactly the sort of talents one would expect out of the starting quarterback on a fifthranked team. Except, of course, he’s usually the Wolves’ starting running back. “I think that [North Mason] thought running back at quarterback, he probably can’t pass that great,” Erik Wiker said. “We knew he could pass.”

The Huskies then went on a 21-point scoring barrage en route to a 31-14 victory over Utah, spoiling the Utes’ first Pac-12 home game. “He challenged me, and as a group, we stepped up to the challenge,” said Price, who finished 22 of 30 for 226 yards and three touchdowns to give him 17 scoring tosses on the season.

Washington wide receiver Kasen Williams (2) celebrates his touchdown against Utah during the second half of Saturday’s game in Salt Lake City.
SALT LAKE CITY — With his Huskies up just three points at halftime Saturday, Washington coach Steve Sarkisian asked for the “real” Keith Price to step up. The sophomore quarterback obliged, hopping up on a stool in front of the entire team. “Can we go back and play Keith
Daring to pass Indeed, North Mason rolled its safeties up near the line of scrimmage, betting that the converted QB wouldn’t be able to complete any deep throws on its secondary. After a shaky start that saw him complete just two of his first six passes, Jack Wiker made the Bulldogs pay for that gamble. He connected on six straight throws at that point — four going for 20 yards or more — that included touchdown passes of 5, 21, and 36 yards to wideouts Nick Ramirez and Tyler Forshaw. Ramirez came up with the first two to put the Wolves on top 12-0. Forshaw then caught the 36-yarder in stride at the goal line on a perfectly lofted spiral that was just the kind of throw first-string quarterback Frank Catelli would make were he not suspended. “I don’t think they expected us to pass as much as we did, and it worked out really well,” said Jack Wiker. “I expected them to have two safeties. That’s what we were planning on. When they didn’t, I knew I could throw deep, so I went for that.” Of course, Jack Wiker flashed a great deal of his power run style as well. Perhaps the most impressive was his 41-yard touchdown run near the end of the first quarter. Coming immediately after Michael Ballard recovered a fumble on defense, it was actually a broken play originally designed as a “choice’’ pass. Once things broke down following the snap, he decided to take off through a hole in the middle of the line. He shook off a tackler, then outran the rest of the defense into the end zone. After adding another 9-yard run moments into the second quarter, the Wolves were well on their way to a win with a 32-0 lead. “I don’t think anybody had any doubts [about Jack replacing Frank],” Forshaw said. “We all know what he’s capable of. “His passing game is elite and so is his running game, so we didn’t have any worries coming in. We just had to believe in him, and he came in and did his job.” Doubts are something Jack Wiker is used to. In recent years, he’s had to deal with the assumption made by some, including peers, that his major role in Sequim’s football program comes by virtue of his last name. Erik Wiker said it’s something he prepared his son for at a young age. “I think that happens a lot in the youth sports, that the dad who coaches puts his son in and he’s the star,” Erik Wiker said. “So I think people kind of grow up with the thought of [favoritism]. “That’s a natural thing that people think. He hears it from students at school and things like that. “It’s definitely not the case. People might think so, but people can think whatever they want.” Turn

Redskins run over Cedar Park too big for PT in 49-0 loss Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — The Port Townsend football team couldn’t handle the bigger, older Cedar Park Christian Eagles in a 49-0 loss Friday night.
Coming off two games in which they scored 24 and 30 points, the young Redskins couldn’t find the end zone in a Class 1A Nisqually League matchup at Memorial Field. The result was the 15th
straight loss for Port Townsend (0-3 in league, 0-5 overall) dating back to the 2009 season. “They are pretty big and physical and they ran the doublewing,” Port Townsend coach Tom Webster said. “I drew up three plays this week [for defensive practice]: trap, counter and toss. And they are just really big up front and they overwhelmed us.” Cedar Park Christian scored three touchdowns in the first two quarters for a 21-0 first-half lead.

after all, who brought athletics back to the school and had the field posthumously named in his honor in 2000 — it was impossible not to feel his impact. “As I’ve been through life, I’ve met a lot of good men, but not a lot of great men,” Wilder, a former Peninsula College Board of Trustees chair, told the crowd at Saturday. “Wally was one of those great men.” Wilder and current president
Tom Keegan, the keynote speaker at the rededication, each credited Sigmar with beginning the transformation that turned Peninsula College into what it is today. Yet surely, even Sigmar would have been surprised to see what his athletic creation had become 11 years after he passed away in June of 2000. Not only was the school officially re-dedicating its new $1.4 million state-of-the-art artificial turf field during a Pirates soccer doubleheader against Whatcom, but standing on it were two of the premiere programs in the NWAACC.

CHIMACUM — This was the barn-burner volleyball match of all barn-burners. Archrivals Chimacum and Port Townsend just didn’t want to quit playing Saturday night in a five-game, 229-point, takeno-prisoners nonleague match. The Cowboys (2-6 overall) of the Nisqually League came out on top 25-12, 25-21, 29-31, 24-26, 19-17 for the 3-2 win. “It was interesting,” Chimacum coach Sally Dankert said. “Even though it was a nonleague match there was more intensity for us because they are our rivals.” The two teams matched up well. “This was definitely a wellmatched team for my girls,” Port Townsend coach Nettie Hawkins (Witheridge) said about Chimacum. “There was a lot of rivalry but a very close five games. It was nice to finally play against someone our size and in the league we belong in.” The Class 1A Redskins currently play in the 2A/3A-dominated Olympic League. “My girls have never played better than they did tonight,” Hawkins said.

Replacement player Sequim romps without star QB By Matt Schubert
Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — From year to year, few Olympic League football teams replace outgoing players quite like the Sequim Wolves. As Friday night’s game against the North Mason Bulldogs proved, however, head coach Erik Wiker and company can also do it from week to week. Subbing for suspended two-way star Frank Catelli at quarterback, Erik’s son, Jack Wiker, guided the fifthranked Wolves to a 48-20 rout of the Bulldogs on a crisp autumn night in Dungeness Valley. The first-string running back ripped off 282 yards of offense and had a hand in six Wolves touchdowns as he more than made up for the absence of Catelli and three other key players from the Sequim lineup. “I like it because I’m like half coach and half dad,” said Erik Wiker, whose Wolves (3-0 in league, 5-0 overall) have won 23 straight league games. “I can go, ‘Good job. That’s my boy.’” With Catelli serving a one-game suspension for his controversial ejection from last week’s win over Bremerton, Jack Wiker assumed the controls of Sequim’s shotgun spread offense Friday. And for the first 16 minutes against North Mason, it was just as explosive as it has been each of the past three seasons. Taking advantage of five first-quarter turnovers from the Bulldogs — they ultimately had 10 giveaways — Sequim scored five touchdowns in 13 minutes to take a 32-0 lead. Jack Wiker threw touchdowns passes of 5, 21 and 36 yards on the first three scoring marches, and had scoring runs of 41 and 9 yards on the last two. By the time he led the Wolves on another scoring drive that ended with Jonathan Campbell’s 26-yard field goal, the game was all but over at 35-0.
And there was still eight minutes left in the second quarter. “I thought we came out with good intensity,” said Erik Wiker. “I also think everybody came together as a team and was doing their roles like we said that they should all week. “I think [Catelli and others’ being out] probably had them focussed more. Everybody focussed a little tighter for this game. They knew it could be maybe close if we didn’t execute well.” Jack Wiker finished with 133 yards rushing and three touchdowns on 14 carries for the game. With the North Mason defense daring him to throw all game with no safety help, he also had 149 yards through the air, completing 9 of 22 passes with one interception and three TDs. Senior Nick Ramirez hauled in five of those passes for 84 yards and two touchdowns and had an interception on defense. Meanwhile, Tyler Forshaw had four grabs for 71 yards and a score as well as 60-yard interception return for a touchdown. “I knew it was going to be hard [without Catelli and the two other offensive starters], but I knew we could do it if we were playing our best,” Jack Wiker said. “Our linemen, Clay Charley, and [Jake] Hudson and Jacob Cooper, they all killed it. That’s why we won the game, because we shut down their dive.” Indeed, North Mason’s triple-option attack didn’t get a first down until it was trailing 35-0 with 7:10 left in the second quarter. The Bulldogs then staged a brief rally, scoring touchdowns on two straight drives to put the score at 35-12. They threatened to score again late in the first half, driving down to Sequim’s 1-yard line. But quarterback Tommy Renne was stuffed at the goal line on a third-down QB sneak, and time ran out before his team could get off another play.

Sequim quarterback Jack Wiker breaks away from the North Mason defense for a run to the end zone in the first quarter on Friday night at Sequim High School. Forshaw then came up with his interception return for a touchdown on North Mason’s first offensive drive of the second half, quelling any thoughts of a miraculous Bulldog comeback. “If we would have punched that in at the half . . . it sure would have been more competitive,” North Mason coach Jeff Bevers said. “We’re just trying to learn how to finish some stuff right now.” The Bulldogs (0-3, 0-5) actually out-gained the Wolves 386 yards to 290 on the game. Much of that, however, had to do with all of the short fields North Mason gave Sequim because of its 10 turnovers, six of which were fumbles. Renne led the Bulldogs with 109 yards rushing and
a touchdown on 22 carries, while fullbacks Tommy Marsh (13 carries, 98 yards) and Brody Stromberg (8-85) also rack up yardage. Yet Renne was also intercepted four times while completing just 1 of 9 passes for 16 yards. Unlike Jack Wiker — another running back turned QB — Renne couldn’t make the opposing defense pay for stacking the box against him. And Sequim’s own turnovers, of which there were five, did little to keep it from claiming its ninth straight win over North Mason since 2004. “That’s the team that we all want to be like in this league,” Bevers said. “That’s the team that you’ve got to beat, and they are great competitors.
“That’s one of the fun things about playing Sequim is they compete hard and are always a well-coached football team.” Sequim 48, North Mason 20 North Mason 0 12 0 8— 20 Sequim 25 10 13 0— 48 First Quarter S—Ramirez 5 pass from Wiker (pass failed) S—Ramirez 21 pass from Wiker (pass failed) S—Forshaw 36 pass from Wiker (Koonz kick) S—Wiker 41 run (kick failed) Second Quarter S—Wiker 9 run (Campbell kick) S—Campbell 26 field goal NM—Renne 50 run (run failed) NM—Marsh 1 run (run failed) Third Quarter S—Forshaw 60 interception return (Campbell kick) S—Wiker 20 run (kick failed) Fourth Quarter NM—Price 33 run (Allen run) Individual Stats Rushing— S: Wiker 14-133, Knapman 6-18, McElrath 7-9, Forshaw 2-(minus 2), Field 3-(minus 15), Moroles 2-(minus 12).

and Feasel said he believes the refs ejected the players so they wouldn’t lose control of the game. Forks had 283 rushing yards and 113 passing yards for 396 total yards in the Onalaska game. WhiteEagle had the majority of the running yards as the Loggers tried to plug up the middle and WhiteEagle was able to get outside. It took the Spartans a whole quarter to get a handle on the Loggers’ triple option, however. “They were able to get 200 rushing yards on us,” Feasel said. Junior James Salazar, a cornerback, had four solo tackles in the first quarter to keep the Loggers out of the end zone after Onalaska had gotten by the other Forks defenders. “Salazar had a great game,” Feasel said.
And Findley, who had nine catches for 219 yards, also had an interception return for a score in addition to his four TD grabs. “The Story-to-Findley combo in our passing game was tremendous,” Crescent coach Darrell Yount said. “Derek Findley, with over 200 yards receiving and five touchdowns on the night, that’s a career for a lot of kids. “Just great young men, the both of them.” Crescent, 2-2 in the Northwest Football League and 3-2 overall, was in a barn-burner for the first three quarters, trailing 28-26 going into the fourth period. But a 30-0 fourth quarter gave the Loggers a comfortable margin at the end. “Friday night was a struggle,” Yount said. “Highland Christian certainly came out to play. “We struggled mightily but were able to get some Forks 48, Onalaska 0 stops and some explosion on Forks 0 21 20 7— 48 offense to get a much-needed Onalaska 0 0 0 0— 0 road win.” Second Quarter The Loggers, who strugF—Shane WhiteEagle 52 run (kick blocked) F—Tyler Penn 77 pass from Brady Castellano gled with illness much of the (WhiteEagle run) week, had 765 total yards.

Port Angeles 20, Olympic 7 SILVERDALE — Keenen Walker passed for 259 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another as the unbeaten Roughriders held off the Trojans in Olympic League action Friday night. It was a defensive battle for both teams, Rider coach Tom Wahl said. “They kept Keenen pretty well in check for the game,” he said. “And our defense did a good job as usual.” Walker connected on 17 of 32 passes, including a 30-yard touchdown pass to Eli Fiscalini and a 25-yarder to Cameron Braithwaite, with no interceptions. Fiscalini (6-72) and Braithwaite (6-115) combined to catch 12 passes for 187 yards. The Riders (3-0, 5-0) led the Trojans (1-2, 1-4) 14-0 at halftime and led 20-0 before Olympic finally scored in the fourth quarter to avoid a shutout. Olympic had some success running the ball in the second half as Randy Grier finished with 111 yards on 18 carries, but the Riders smothered the Trojans’ short passing game. Quarterbacks Zach Thornton and Rob Howard combined to complete 8 of 16 passes, but the completions only went for 30 yards. The Riders next travel to North Mason on Friday night.

Justin Morris led the ground attack with 58 yards on 19 carries, while Victor Cienga was the top receiver with three catches for 41 yards.

Mountain magic Cougs outlast Buffs The Associated Press
BOULDER, Colo. — Bottled up most of the afternoon by a depleted defensive backfield, Marquess Wilson came up with the big play — and down with the ball — just in time. Speeding past two defenders, Wilson hauled in a 63-yard touchdown pass from Marshall Lobbestael with 1:10 left to lead Washington State to a stunning 31-27 comeback win over Colorado on Saturday. The Buffaloes (1-4, 0-1) were primed for a win in their Pac-12 debut before surrendering two touchdowns in the final 2½ minutes. Colorado had thwarted Washington State’s highpowered aerial attack most of the afternoon with a patchwork secondary that included two converted offensive players. Coming into the game, Wilson’s average of 143.6 yards receiving was tops in the nation among BCS schools, but he’d been held to just 58 yards on five catches up to that point. One stutter-step and a pump-fake later, Wilson found himself 10 yards past cornerback Greg Henderson and safety Anthony Perkins as he raced toward the end zone. Lobbestael’s pass hung in the air as the crowd of 51,928 grew silent. “I knew Marshall would be able to get it there,” Wilson said.

Washington State’s Alex Hoffman-Ellis (17) and Taylor Meighan celebrate a 31-27 win over Colorado in Saturday’s game at Folsom Field in Boulder, Colo. the Cougars forced a punt and got the ball back with 1:50 left. This time, they needed just 40 seconds to cover 90 yards. “They ran a double move and we got beat,” Perkins said. “We’ll leave it at that.” After Wilson’s TD, the Buffs had one more chance, but receiver Paul Richardson was stripped of the ball by cornerback Damante Horton after a 23-yard gain and linebacker C.J. Mizell recovered for Washington State. Afterward, Buffaloes coach Jon Embree ripped into his team for finding a
way to lose yet again. “I asked them, ‘When is it going to be enough? When is enough enough? You put in all this work, you do all this stuff you’ve done from spring ball to coaches’ week to training camp for this. This is what we did the work for. So when is it enough?’” Embree said, his voice rising. “When are they going to get tired of losing? When are they going to get tired of finding ways of losing? “This staff, we’ve been here for five freaking weeks and I’m tired of it. So, if I’ve been here for five years, I have to be tired of it myself, too.”
Dawgs: Price steps up in 2nd Continued from B1 It didn’t hurt that Chris Polk ran wild in the third quarter, carrying nine times for 101 yards. He finished with 29 carries for 189 yards. He not only surpassed the 3,000-yard mark in his career, he became the Huskies’ No. 2 all-time rusher. He surpassed Joe Steele (3,168) and now trails only Napoleon Kaufman (4,106). “That guy’s like a bowling ball,” Price said of the 5-foot11, 222-pound junior. “Maybe he’ll get stopped [one play], then rip off a 30-yard run. He’s a great player.” The Huskies (4-1, 2-0) also forced five turnovers by Utah (2-2, 0-2), including a fumble on the opening kickoff that Jamaal Kearse returned 18 yards for a touchdown.
“It feels good to get one that counts,” said Kearse, who made his first start at linebacker. “The feeling was great to be in the end zone with the ball.” It took just nine seconds, but Washington had a 7-0 lead. Utah quarterback Jordan Wynn tied the game at 7-all on a 16-yard pass to Dres Anderson with 6:59 left in the quarter. But the Huskies took the lead for good on a 44-yard field goal by Erik Folk on the final play before halftime. Wynn did not play in the second half due to an injury to his left (non-throwing) shoulder. He finished 12 of 17 for 149 yards with a touchdown and interception. Utah coach Kyle Whittingham did not disclose the nature of the injury and said
he would know more Monday. Jon Hays, who had previously thrown one major-college pass, was intercepted on his second attempt Saturday. He fumbled in the fourth quarter before tossing a lastminute 4-yard TD pass to Dallin Rogers. The Utes entered the game plus-nine in turnovers, but committed three in the first half — twice in the red zone in the second quarter. Wynn threw his second interception of the year, as Sean Parker made the grab at his own 4-yard line with 10:29 left in the quarter. Six minutes later, Anderson cut back and looked for the end zone after a pass from Wynn, but Desmond Trufant forced a fumble and recovered at the Huskies’ 6-yard line.
Washington converted the third turnover into Folk’s field goal. It was all Washington in the second half. “I thought our defense was the key to this ball game,” Sarkisian said. “Their ability to keep us around while the offense could get going was critical.” The Huskies are off to their best start since 2006 but don’t want to follow the script for that season, when they lost six straight to finish 5-7 overall. They have a bye before facing the Pac-12’s other new conference member, Colorado. Then comes a showdown at Stanford on Oct. 22 before home games against Arizona and Oregon. Utah, meanwhile, may have to lower its expectations.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Fredy Montero scored twice as the Seattle Sounders beat the New England Revolution 2-1 Saturday night for their fourth straight road victory.

The Revolution are also 1-5-5 over their last 11 outings. New England led 1-0 after the 16-year-old Fagundez headed in Benny Feilhaber’s corner kick in the 35th minute.

Jean Sigmar, wife of late Peninsula College president Wally Sigmar, right, receives a hug from college soccer player Morgan Atchley as other players stand in line during rededication ceremonies for the Sigmar Athletic Complex on Saturday on the school’s Port Angeles campus. Miguel’s brother, Daniel Gonzalez, had an electrifying goal of his own in the 15th minute. The freshman midfielder, who also had an assist, took a flick on pass from Miguel, then weaved past two defenders before blasting the ball into the net for a 1-0 Pirates lead. “We looked really good, really dangerous,” Chapman said. “We moved the ball well, a lot of combination play, a lot of one-touch stuff. It was just nice, crafty soccer.” The women weren’t as explosive but were just as effective in getting their 4-0 win over the Orcas. Krystal Daniels had her fifth shutout of the season in goal, and the Pirates got goals from Ashlyn Frizzelle, Jackie Rodgers, Carolina
Flores and Shelby Solomon. The last three all came in the final 10 minutes of the match. “They got tired,” Pirate women’s coach Kanyon Anderson said of the Orcas. “We were able to just play faster than they wanted to, I think, for 90 minutes.” Women Peninsula 4, Whatcom 0 Whatcom Peninsula

11th straight win to begin the season. “We did mention to them and say, ‘Hey, let’s make it a show,’” Pirate men’s coach Andrew Chapman said. “We did tell them that there’s some fans here and some people here, it means a lot of things to them, so let’s go out and give them something to watch.” Forwards Miguel Gonzalez and Dean Gaynor didn’t disappoint, with each scoring two exquisite breakaway goals that had some grade schoolers in the audience speculating who’s autograph they wanted. Gaynor added a pair of assists, while Gonzalez had an assist to go along with his 19th and 20th goals of the season, which furthered his single-season and career scoring (35) Pirate records.
On one side were the eighth-ranked Pirate women, fresh off their fifth shutout victory in six matches thanks to a 4-0 triumph over the Orcas. On the other were the top-ranked men, moments away from another display of offensive brilliance in a 5-0 win of their own. And gathered in front of them were scores of youth soccer players, community members and friends and family of the since-passed college president. That included Sigmar’s wife, Jean Sigmar, and her boys, Erik and John. “This is unbelievable,” said Jean, whose husband also coached soccer for several years at Skagit Valley Community College. “I think [Wally] would be very honored. It’s quite a tribute to have such a beautiful facility, and he was all about connecting with other people. This certainly is a place where people can be connected.” That was most assuredly the case Saturday. With hundreds on hand for the re-dedication, the men’s and women’s teams played in front of their largest crowds of the season. The women (5-1-0 in West Division, 6-2-2 overall) delivered three late goals to secure another gritty defensive victory. Meanwhile, the men (5-00, 11-0-0) provided a whole lot of flash during a four-goal first half on the way to their

Getting it to him wasn’t the issue for Lobbestael, who threw for 376 yards. Overthrowing him was. “It looked like he put too much on it,” Cougars coach Paul Wulff said after just his second road win in four years. Wilson cradled the pass at the 15, then trotted into the end zone, giving the Cougars (3-1, 1-0) one more win than in any of Wulff’s previous three full seasons. The Buffaloes led 27-17 with 5:11 left after Rodney Stewart’s 1-yard TD run. Lobbestael drove Washington State 77 yards in seven plays, hitting Isiah Barton from 19 yards out with 2:35 left to pull the Cougars within a field goal.

Kinetic SkulPTure Race launches at ‘low-noon’

KINETIC SKULPTURE FANS got sneak peeks Saturday at the contraptions that will vie for glory in today’s 2011 Kinetic SkulPTure Race. A wacky “wannabe” parade preceded the always buoyant flotation tests, where kontestants and race loose-organizers see where the race vehicles float. Floating on the water will be a key aspect of today’s race, which launches at noon on the streets of Port Townsend. This year’s race and parade theme is “A Kinetic Fairy Tale, Once Upon a Time,” which went even further at Saturday night’s Rose Hips Koronation Ball. But today is race day. For those ready to handikap, skulptures will line up on Water Street by the American Legion Hall around 10 a.m. The race starts at “low-noon” with a quick pedal around downtown; then the pilots put into the water, pedal up and down the bay and dry themselves off for the pedal up Monroe Street. The grueling race continues up Lawrence Street, by Aldrich’s Market, and then heads for Fort Worden State Park and the always-popular mud bog at Jefferson County Fairgrounds, back down San Juan Avenue and up to Kearney Street for a brief break at Kinetic Koffee. Then it’s off to the finish line at the American Legion Hall on Water Street. A detailed map of the route awaits at www.ptkineticrace.org. Peninsula Daily News

Oil money boon to Alaskan portfolio High prices and prudent investing key to success Peninsula Daily News news services
WASHINGTON — Tysons Corner Center awaits a Metro stop that will connect it more closely to Washington, but the sprawling shopping mall in Washington’s Virginia suburbs is already linked to a place even farther away: Alaska. The Alaska Permanent Fund, the state’s sovereign wealth fund, owns half of Tysons Corner Center, just one piece of a $38 billion portfolio amassed in the four decades since the state’s coffers started overflowing with oil revenue. In 1969, Alaska received a $903 million check from the first sale for oil- and gas-drilling leases on the North Slope. The check was more than five times the size of the state’s annual budget.
North Slope benefit
the second-largest city in Alaska.” At a time when most states are scrambling to cover budget deficits, Alaska and its permanent fund are enjoying the fruits of high oil prices and years of prudent investing. In September, the fund shelled out more than $400 million in cash to buy a 49.5 percent stake in the 42-story North American headquarters of UBS on Park Avenue in midtown Manhattan.
For residents: $1,174 The fund also announced the annual dividend it will pay to every Alaska resident this year — $1,174. Tysons Corner Center, with more than 2 million square feet of space, is one of the fund’s best investments, Burns said. The Alaska Permanent Fund’s half of the property is worth about $800 million, five times the initial investment. The decision two decades ago to move the truck port that was underneath the mall and transform that space into additional retail added value. Replacing J.C. Penney with movie theaters, a food court and new retail space added more. Now Tysons is poised to benefit anew from the extension of the Metro rail line, which will stop “literally right at our front door,” Burns said. Burns said there is no pressure on the fund to plow more money into Alaska. The statute that created the fund ordained that any investment in Alaska must compete with investments elsewhere. Moreover, he said, the permanent fund is so big that if it invested even in the state’s largest city, Anchorage, it would throw all the property values out of whack.
The North Slope has turned out to be one of the richest oil areas in the country, and the giant fields known as Prudhoe Bay are on state land. Today, 90 percent of Alaska’s government revenue comes from the oil industry in the form of severance taxes, income taxes and royalties. But unlike many oil-rich countries and states, Alaska has squirreled away some of its oil riches in a taxexempt fund for the citizens of the state. The state channels a quarter of its oil- and gasroyalty payments to the fund. Today, the Alaska Permanent Fund owns shares of 2,000 public companies, domestic and international bonds, a few hedge-fund investments and a vast real-estate empire that includes half of Tysons Corner. “We average 75,000 people a day through the shopping center,” said Mike Investment goofs Burns, the executive director of the fund. The fund has made its “I like to remind our share of mistakes. It lost $10 million on a partners that that would be

The last ship of the Alaska cruise season, the Celebrity Century, sits docked on Saturday, Sept. 24, in Juneau. A tram which ferries tourists and others up a nearby mountain is seen on the left. Flush with export earnings and foreign investment, China also has a sovereign wealth fund. The International Monetary Fund has a working group to increase the transparency of such funds, and the Treasury Department and the Alaska Permanent Fund both send representatives. “We really don’t have a peer group,” Burns said. “We’re not a pension, where there’s somebody at your front door every month seeking payment. We do pay that dividend each year to the people of Alaska, but that dividend fluctuates.” The fund pays according to a formula — 10.5 percent of the realized income over the past five years.
The Alaska Permanent Fund . . . n Has received $15 billion from its share of oil revenue and paid out $19.5 billion in dividends while building its portfolio to $38 billion. n As of June 30, it had a $207 million stake in Apple, about three times its initial investment. It held $162 million worth of Exxon Mobil, 48 percent over its cost. Shares of public companies make up 36 percent of its portfolio. n Real-estate holdings: 11 retail, 13 residential, 19 office buildings, and 11 industrial parks. n The fund owns only one building in Alaska: its headquarters in Juneau.

currency trade when Lehman Brothers went bankrupt. It bought property in southern Tennessee only to watch Arkansas offer incentives for people to move across the river. And as of June 30, it owned $53.5 million of Bank of America, down more than a third from its initial investment, and $4.4 million in the National Bank of Greece, down nearly half. The stock portfolio has
followed the yo-yo market. After touching $40 billion in early 2008, its value plunged to $26 billion at one point before bouncing back. “It’s been a bumpy road and one I don’t want to take again,” Burns said. While unusual for a U.S. state, Alaska’s permanent fund is similar to sovereign wealth funds fueled by oil and gas money in countries such as Norway and in the United Arab Emirates’ Abu Dhabi.
Prudhoe going dry The source of all this money, Prudhoe Bay, is starting to run dry. That’s a problem for the United States, which still needs oil supplies, and for Alaska, which depends on oil revenue. So far, high prices have
made up for the sagging production levels. “If you think back, in the early ’90s, there was over 2 million barrels a day coming down the pipeline” from Prudhoe Bay, Burns said. “Today it’s about 650,000 a day. “So clearly we’re riding a high price. “But this is very important to the state of Alaska. “It’s their lifeblood. We’ve got to find a way to replace the oil in that pipeline through new exploration and new development.” But for the permanent fund, the flow of oil is not crucial. Burns said the fund’s share of oil revenue last year was about $875 million. “There’s no question that’s a lot of money,” he said. “But our income from investments was $6.9 billion. “The success of the fund has much, much more to do with what happens on Wall Street than with what happens on the North Slope.”
Record-search fines could rise, high court warns Spokane County case triggers ruling for state By Mike Baker
The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — Government agencies could face higher penalties if they fail to properly search for documents in response to publicrecords requests, the state Supreme Court said in a decision last week.
In their 7-2 decision, justices said an inadequate search might be considered an aggravating factor in calculating daily penalties. The court said agencies must search for records in all areas where they are reasonably likely to be found. Michele Earl-Hubbard, an open-government attorney who filed a brief on behalf of newspapers in the case, said agencies in the past have said they don’t have responsive documents
County, wanted to examine hiring practices in the county’s Building and Planning Department after the son of a commissioner was hired. The court said in its Thursday decision that the search was inadequate because it examined only an employee’s computer that had recently been replaced. “Where, as occurred here, the computer containing the record has been destroyed, the agency must look to other locations,”
“If they know of a place that might have the information, they ought to be searching that place.”

but may not have been looking in all the right places. She said the ruling provides a strong message that agencies need to diligently look for available records. “If they know of a place that might have the information, they ought to be searching that place,” Earl-
Hubbard said. Justices said Spokane County failed to sufficiently search for records in response to a request focused on a log of information about a government seating chart. A group, the Neighborhood Alliance of Spokane

wrote Justice Charles Johnson in the majority opinion. Breean Beggs, an attorney for the Neighborhood Alliance, said the county’s handling of the case was particularly egregious because officials looked in the only place where the information wouldn’t be found. He said they could have examined the old hard drive that was in storage or an overall county network where the information would likely be saved. Beggs said he expects the case will result in a substantial fine of many thousands of dollars. Attorneys in the case did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Wigeon’s arrival heralds fall’s coming MANY THINGS SIGNAL the changing seasons, and not everyone is effected by the same event or events. The majority of us recognize fall’s approach when we notice the tree leaves beginning to change color. Cooler morning temperatures remind us that the season’s first frost isn’t far off. Birders mark the seasons by the changing bird population. Rufous hummingbirds started moving south several weeks ago. That raspy sucking sound that is being heard in the trees and bushes is the Anna’s claiming territories the two argued over all summer. Seasonal reminders are even more pronounced on the marine waters. Heermann’s gulls, parasitic jaegers and the terns arrive in late August. Their numbers build into September, and then most continue south for the winter.
Fall’s arrival They are migrants that announce summer’s ending while other marine species emphasize fall’s arrival. When the American wigeon begins to show up, summer is over. Even the double-crested cormorants returning to the inland waters don’t announce fall as the wigeons do. The first cormorants showing up on our bays and in our harbors are this year’s young. It will be a while before the adults that nested along the coast or in the northern waters will join them. In addition to the wigeon,
BIRD WATCH another marine species always Carson tells me that fall has arrived. The first small horned grebe that will just appear one morning emphasizes that there is no more hanging on to summer. Give it up and put away the outdoor furniture. That hasn’t happened yet, but I’m sure there are red-necked grebes being seen farther offshore. They usually arrive early enough to still retain some of their breeding colors. The birds that signal fall to birders can vary from one region to another. Flying wedges of Canada geese dotting the skies over the eastern portion of the state carry fall on wings that push summer southward. Even on the western side, there are migratory routes for the geese. In a few short weeks, they will settle in on west-side refuges and large tracts of private farmland. Snow geese will flock to the fields in Skagit County. Sandhill cranes gather for the winter at Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge in the southwest corner of this state. Trumpeter swans, tundra swans and millions of ducks flood into these protected havens where they will spend the winter. Turkey vultures have also

Stickers at funeral cause sibling rift DEAR ABBY: My mother passed away recently. My sister, who lives in another state, flew in with her 4-year-old daughter, “Nikki,” to attend Mom’s wake. When the wake ended, Nikki began to place stickers on Mom’s hands and one on her face. The stickers had been given to her by another guest before the service started. When my 18-year-old daughter saw what her cousin had done, she removed them, and Nikki threw a tantrum and refused to leave the casket. My sister spoke quietly to her, trying to get the child to leave, then allowed her to put at least two more stickers on my mother’s hand.

Weather on Peninsula great for garden I OFTEN WRITE about just how fantastic the weather is here on the Olympic Peninsula. And so enthusiastic am I of our glorious climate that even this year (with little or no summer, some say), I am more excited about just how special and unique our wonderfully mild weather is. Humidity, even this year like all others, is very low, nonexistent for any of us from the South, Midwest or East Coast who know when humidity is above 90 percent (almost all summer long), shade offers no cover. Then look nationally this year: hurricanes (not here), massive droughts (think rain forest nearby), record-breaking tripledigit heat (yeah right, never here!), tornadoes, thunder and lightning storms (what are those?) — the nation annually gets plastered with all of these, but not here! Yay, whoop-de-doo. We never get all hot and warm; it was gray or cool. I’ll say real cool — cool in that any day of the summer, one can go outside, barbecue, sit in the swing and enjoy the gazebo every evening free of bugs.
Free of humidity Free of humidity that makes people miserable. What makes the weather here is twofold: It’s very mild and forgiving causing, little or no stress to your plants, and the growing season is soooo long. And today, I want to hopefully imprint upon you just how long (and mild) the growing season really is. This is so important because we live in a unique gardening spot — unique to the world, not just North America. You should see (come and look) just how gorgeous the delphin-
A GROWING CONCERN ium, lupine, poppy and colMay umbine are looking at my wife’s veterinary clinic (across the street from Traylor’s Restaurant in Port Angeles). And why? Because of how mild and long our growing season is. The longevity means I can rebloom many spring perennials again in the fall — only they are far better because our season extends until November, and our mild summer weather does not burn them out like the rest of the nation, so they thrive.
Sole purpose Today, my sole purpose is to make you fully understand how to capitalize on fall with (attached photo) evidence, so you will be totally prepared for next year (or gloat to friends now). This mild weather, late frost and northern latitude we find ourselves in all translate into a lush, nutrient-packed, compact, dense, green-stalked, robust plant. I just wrote about how great dahlias are, and they are fantastic here because they fully capitalize on our long growing season, looking absolutely fabulous until a hard frost (November) puts them into dormancy. For the Fourth of July, I wrote and told you how fellow PDN columnist Pat Neal reminded me of his pioneer gardens that were planted in July for a great late
A photo of Andrew May’s garden last week that was planted in July. summer-fall harvest, so I planted then, too. The photo was taken late last week of that garden I planted at my house at 994-foot elevation July 3 and 4. Every day, the peas and beans are more plentiful, with salad greens coming out our ears and delicious broccoli for the steamer, to mention a few of the garden munchies. Go to the farmers market and bring home some vegetables. Just taste how delicious they are. This time of year, temperatures are even lower, and sunlight is so much less intense due to our latitude. This means a longer time
needed to ripen, so more time to condense nutrients. Cool weather doesn’t stress plants, so the flavor of vegetables is far enhanced. A more nutrient-rich, crisper, tastier produce, which is the fall garden. A huge display of flowers on compact lush plants that is the fall flower garden. So please, look around your neighborhood, pay attention as you drive the county, look for these fabulous stands of vegetables and flowers in various people’s yards. Admire how even though it is October, gardens can be and are great.
Make notes, plan beds, be prepared so now that it is in front of your eyes, you will be convinced fall is a prime time of year in your yard and vegetable garden, so you will always act in the future and plant accordingly. Please use our climate to its fullest because for most of the nation, this double opportunity is nonexistent.

PeninsulaNorthwest Briefly . . . Walk/Bike to School Day slated in PT PORT TOWNSEND — International Walk/Bike to School Day will be recognized in Port Townsend on Wednesday. This one-day event is a part of an international effort in more than 40 countries to celebrate the many benefits of safely walking and bicycling to school. Local organizers hope to encourage more families to consider getting out of their cars and onto their feet and bicycles on the way to school Lowell Jons, a member of Port Townsend’s NonMotorized Transportation Advisory Board and a small committee of volunteers will be organizing and promoting the Walk/ Bike to School Day at elementary, middle and high schools. Members of the local bicycle club, the Port Townsend Bicycle Association, have also agreed to help families bicycle to school for this special celebration by riding the streets along with students on their way to school. Leif Hansen, who organized and promoted a “Walk Your Child to School day” in Port Townsend last May, is again helping to
make this autumn event happen. “Over 200 kids, plus 200 parents, friends and relatives, walked to school that day. . . . It was an overwhelming success,” said Hansen. No signups are needed, and it will be up to parents to self-organize. If you live farther than walking or biking distance an option is to drive part way, park and walk the rest of the way. For more information, phone Jons at 360-3799911 or visit www. ptwalkorbiketoschool.org.

Bob, or R.S. as he was sometimes known, was born in Mankato, Minnesota, on November 13, 1922, to Stephen and Faith (Graham) Lamm. After graduating from Mankato High School, he learned to fly, receiving his training from the Civil Aeronautics Administration’s Civilian Training Program. Soon after, his dream of becoming an Army Air Force pilot went unfulfilled due to his color blindness. During World War II, he was assigned to China as a field meteorologist for the Air Force. Stationed at
Mr. Lamm air strips and villages in the interior, he provided weather reports vital to the Allied air campaign. After the war, he attended the University of Washington before starting his career with the Boy Scouts of America in 1948. Bob’s experience as an Eagle Scout and the example set by his father,
Stephen, influenced this decision. Bob’s journey with scouting took him to Seattle, Bremerton, and Walla Walla, Washington; Kansas City, Missouri; Boston; and San Jose, California. Along the way, he served as a district executive, assistant and chief Scout executive, and assistant regional and regional executive. His final position as a program director for the Western region gave him the opportunity to travel to Japan and Hawaii, where he fell in love with the island of Molokai. During his retirement, he vacationed there frequently. Of his 35-year career with the Scouts, some of his fondest memories were of being director of Camp Parsons on the Olympic Peninsula and of the wonderful staff mem-

Doctors sue state over Medicaid ER visit limits Other court actions THE DOCTORS’ SUIT to stop new limitations on repeat visits to the emergency room is the latest in a series of legal salvos that could deepen the state’s budget sinkhole. The state budget shortfall now stands at $1.3 billion. Other interest groups and advocates taking the state to court in reaction to the Legislature’s cuts to human services and public employee compensation: n A hearing was held Friday in front of a King County Superior Court judge on another cut to hospitals. The Legislature cut hospital reimbursements for Medicaid services by $260 million in state and federal money. Lawmakers said the change lined up the reimbursements with federal Medicare rates, but hospitals call it an illegal diversion of fees they agreed to pay in 2010 to help pull down more federal health care money. n Nonprofit community health centers have also challenged their payment rates, according to the governor’s budget office. n Two unions and a group representing retired public employees plan to sue in October to restore retirees’ cost-of-living increases.

County Superior Court on Friday. The group and the Washington State Medical Association have been in discussions about the rule with state Medicaid officials. The lawsuit, which asks the court for an injunction, says the state did not follow proper rulemaking procedures, ignored lawmakers’ directions and is violating state and federal Medicaid laws, including “prudent layperson” standards governing the coverage of ER visits. Washington State Hospital Association spokeswoman Cassie Sauer said hospitals support the
lawsuit as well. “We are absolutely not OK with how it has turned out,” Sauer said. “The state is making bad policy and legislating bad medicine based solely on cutting the budget,” with potentially severe consequences for some of the most vulnerable patients. “The medical community is united in opposition,” she said. State officials said Friday they had not yet seen the suit and had no comment at this time. Turn

For Mindi Campbell, a college student who operates a gondola ride in Spokane’s Riverfront Park, the raise seems fair. “With tuition going up, it’s good to see that increase going up in minimum wage to be able to keep up with that,” she said.

Japan’s answer to next tsunami: mini-Noah’s Ark The Associated Press
TOKYO — A small Japanese company has developed a modern, miniature version of Noah’s Ark in case Japan is hit by another massive earthquake and tsunami — a floating capsule that looks like a huge tennis ball. Japan’s Cosmo Power says its “Noah” shelter is made of enhanced fiberglass that can save users from disasters like the one on March 11 that devastated Japan’s northern coast, leaving nearly 20,000 people dead or missing. Company president Shoji Tanaka says the capsule can hold four adults and has survived many crash tests. It has a small lookout window and breathing holes on top. It also can be used as a toy house for children. The company completed the capsule earlier this month and already has 600 orders, including two delivered. The capsule sells for $4,000.
Hispanic students leave Ala. schools following new law Peninsula Daily News news services
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Hispanic students have started vanishing from Alabama public schools in the wake of a court ruling that upheld the state’s tough new law cracking down on illegal immigration. Education officials say scores of immigrant families have withdrawn their children from classes or kept them home this week, afraid that sending the kids to school would draw attention from authorities. There are no precise statewide numbers. But several districts with large immigrant enrollments — from small towns to large urban districts — reported a sudden exodus of children of Hispanic parents, some of whom told officials they planned to leave the state to avoid trouble with the law, which requires schools to check students’ immigration status and report back to the state.
What law does
By Robert Pear
The New York Times
WASHINGTON — President Obama is backing legislation that would prohibit employers from discriminating against job applicants because they are unemployed. Under the proposal, it would be “an unlawful employment practice” if a business with 15 or more employees refused to hire a person “because of the individual’s status as unemployed.” Unsuccessful job applicants could sue and recover damages for violations, just as when an employer discriminates on the basis of a person’s race, color, religion, sex or national origin. In a radio interview last month, Obama said such discrimination made “absolutely no sense,” especially at a time when many people, through no fault of their own, had been laid off. Obama’s proposal would also prohibit employment agencies and websites from carrying advertisements

NEW YORK — The dozens of people in tie-dyed T-shirts and star-spangled underwear have been camped out in a granite plaza in lower Manhattan for more than two weeks — and show no signs of going away. They sleep on air mattresses, use Mac laptops and play drums. They go to the bathroom at the local McDonald’s. A few times a day, they march down to Wall Street, yelling, “This is what democracy looks like!” It all has the feel of a classic street protest with one exception: It’s unclear exactly what the demonstrators want. “When all the bailout money was spent on bonuses and stuff everyone was outraged, but no one did anything because no one feels like they can,” protester Jesse Wilson, 22, said last week when asked to take articulate the cause. “It’s time for us to come together to realize we are the masses, and we can make things happen.” But he couldn’t say what, exactly, he wanted to happen. Does it matter that the protest is vague? Academics and longtime activists give varying opinions.

National Public Radio, which hasn’t aired stories, has fielded angry communiques demanding coverage. “The recent protests on Wall Street did not involve large numbers of people, prominent people, a great disruption or an especially clear objective,” said Dick Meyer, an NPR editor.

“A lot of this revolves around economic justice, who gets what in this society, who has a safety net, who doesn’t and how much corporate influence exists in Washington,” said Bill Dobbs, an activist involved in the 2004 demonstrations at the Republican National Convention.

passed, would encourage litigation by sending a message to millions of Americans: “If you’re unemployed and you go to apply for a job, and you’re not hired for that job, see a lawyer.” The Labor Department reports that 14 million people are unemployed. About 43 percent of them — 6 million people — are classified as longterm unemployed, having been out of work for 27 weeks or more. Of that group, nearly 4.5 million have been unemployed for a year or more. The average duration of unemployment among jobless workers is 40 weeks, the longest in more than 60 years. Charges of employment discrimination tend to increase in a sluggish economy with a high jobless rate. In the fiscal year 2010, which ended last September, job-bias charges filed with the employment commission reached a record of nearly 100,000, up 20 percent from 2007.

for job openings that exclude people who are unemployed. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has received reports of such advertisements — but does not have data to show how common they are. Republicans and some employers said that discrimination was not common and that the proposed remedy could expose employers to a barrage of lawsuits. Michael Eastman, executive director of labor-law policy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, said the Civil Rights Act already outlaws employment practices that have “a disparate impact on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin,” unless an employer can show that a particular practice is “job related for the position in question and consistent with business necessity.” Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, said the president’s proposal would, in effect, establish the unemployed as a new “protected class.” Gohmert said the proposal, if

nor parents will be arrested for trying to get an education. The anxiety has become so intense that the superintendent in one of the state’s largest cities, Huntsville, went on a Spanish-language television show Thursday to try to calm widespread worries. “In the case of this law, our students do not have anything to fear,” Casey Wardynski said in halting Spanish. He urged families to send students to class and explained that the state is only trying to compile statistics. Police, he insisted, were not getting involved in schools. But many Spanishspeaking families aren’t waiting around to see what happens. A school worker in Albertville — a community with a large poultry industry that employs many Hispanic workers — said Friday that many families might leave town over the weekend for other states. About 22 percent of the community’s 4,200 students are Hispanic. Victor Palafox graduated from a high school in suburban Birmingham last year and has lived in the United States without documentation since age 6, when his parents brought him and his brother here from Mexico. “Younger students are watching their lives taken from their hands,” said Palafox, whose family is staying put. In Montgomery County, more than 200 Hispanic students were absent the morning after the judge’s Wednesday ruling.
‘Unemployed’ could be added to protected status
The law — which The New York Times labeled in an editorial as “the country’s cruelest, most unforgiving immigration law” — effectively makes it a crime to be an undocumented immigrant in Alabama by criminalizing working, renting a home and failing to comply with federal registration laws that opponents say are largely obsolete. It nullifies any contracts when one party is an undocumented immigrant. It requires the police to check the papers of people they suspect are in the U.S. illegally. It does not spare American citizens. Businesses that knowingly employ illegal immigrants can lose their licenses. The Obama administration filed court documents Friday announcing its plans to appeal the ruling that upheld the law. Local and state officials are pleading with immigrant families to keep their children enrolled. The law does not ban anyone from school, they say, and neither students

Supreme Court to face health care law New term opening with political issue By Mark Sherman
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The nine justices of the Supreme Court, who serve without seeking election, soon will have to decide whether to insert themselves into the center of the presidential campaign next year. The high court begins its new term Monday, and President Obama’s health care overhaul, which affects almost everyone in the country, is squarely in its sights. The Obama administration’s request last week that the justices resolve whether the health care law is constitutional makes it more likely than not that they will deliver their verdict by June 2012, just as Obama and his Republican opponent charge toward the fall campaign. Already, GOP presidential contenders use virtually every debate and speech to assail Obama’s major domestic accomplishment, which aims to extend health insurance to more than 30 million people now without coverage. If as now expected the justices agree to review the law’s constitutionality, those deliberations would certainly define the court’s coming term. Their decision could rank as the court’s most significant since the December 2000 ruling that effectively sealed George W. Bush’s election as president. Health care is only one of several issues that the
court could hear that would make for a “fantastic Supreme Court term,” said former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal, now in private practice at the Hogan Lovells law firm. Other high-profile cases on the horizon concern immigration and affirmative action, hot-button issues at any time and only more so in an election year. Less likely, though still with a chance to make it to the court this year are cases involving gay marriage and the landmark Voting Rights Act that some Southern states argue has outlived its usefulness. Decisions about whether to even to consider health care, affirmative action and immigration are a month off or more.
Other cases In the meantime, the justices will take up a First Amendment case looking at the regulation of television broadcasts as well as a couple of appeals involving the Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures. One of those cases is a digital age dispute over the government’s power to track a suspect’s movement using a GPS device, without first getting a judge’s approval. Among the cases involving criminal defendants is one from an inmate awaiting execution in Alabama who missed a deadline to appeal his death sentence because the big-firm lawyers in New York who had been handling his case for free moved on to new jobs and letters from the court clerk sat in the firm’s mailroom before being returned to sender. The case of Cory Maples,
The Associated Press

Jerusalem’s location A lawsuit over a baby’s passport also will be before the court in a case that has a taste of Middle East politics and a fight between the president and Congress. Jerusalem-born Menachem Zivotofsky’s parents want his U.S. passport to list his birthplace as Israel
even though U.S. policy does not recognize the oncedivided city as belonging to Israel. Congress, though, passed a law in 2002 giving Jerusalem-born U.S. citizens that option. Presidents of both parties have directed the State Department to ignore the law, saying it wrongly interferes with the president’s powers. Just over a third of the 48 cases the court has so far agreed to hear are of interest to the business sector, according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. But that list includes few big-ticket cases, unlike last term’s victories for business interests in major
cases seeking to limit consumer and employee access to the courts. Foremost among those was the decision to throw out a class-action lawsuit on behalf of up to 1.6 million female Wal-Mart employees.
TV case The nation’s major broadcasters are focused on one case that has the potential to reshape regulation of the airwaves. The federal appeals court in New York threw out the Federal Communications Commission’s rules that apply when children are likely to be watching. That includes a ban on
the use of curse words as well as fines against broadcasters who showed a woman’s nude buttocks on a 2003 episode of ABC’s “NYPD Blue.” The television networks argue that the policy is inconsistently applied and outdated, taking in only broadcast television and leaving unregulated the same content if transmitted on cable TV or over the Internet. “Singling out broadcast television doesn’t make much more sense anymore,” said Jonathan Cohn, a former Justice Department official. Cohn’s law firm, Sidley, Austin, represents Fox Television Stations in the case.
Supreme Court to hear deportation case THE SUPREME COURT agreed last week to decide whether the length of immigrants’ lawful residence in the United States should be considered in determining whether their children may be deported. Federal immigration law allows people who have been lawful permanent
residents for at least five years and have lived continuously in the United States for at least seven years to ask the government for leniency if they are threatened with deportation. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in San Francisco, has ruled that immigrants who entered the United States as
children may count their parents’ years here to satisfy the residency requirements. The court accepted two appeals from such rulings, consolidating them into a single case. One of the appeals, Holder v. Gutierrez, No. 10-1542, concerns Carlos M. Gutierrez, a Mexican citizen who became
a legal permanent resident of the United States in 2003, when he was 19. Two years later, the government sought to deport him after catching him trying to drive across the border from Mexico with three undocumented minors in his car. The New York Times

In a news conference last week, Kaiser President Drew Altman provided several explanations. For one thing, insurers “pegged their premiums to an expectation of utilization that didn’t play out because the recovery sputtered out,” he said. The translation: As the economy improved, insurers charged more, expecting companies to hire more people who would use more health-care services. But hiring stalled halfway into the year, and so has use, even though the negotiated rate already was in place. Altman also noted insur-

Parents’ insurance One provision allowed all young adults — not only those in college — to remain on their parents’ plan until age 26. The other provision prohibits plans from charging co-pays for annual checkups and other preventive care. Together, those two provisions contributed to about one-fifth of the 9 percent increase, the study calculated. Employers seem to be turning to cost-shifting as an alternative to dropping coverage outright. The share of companies offering insurance shrank from 68 percent to 60 percent in the first half of the decade, and the figure for very small firms dropped from 58 percent to 48 percent. But that decline has leveled off since then.

deductibles of $1,000 or more. That figure was 16 percent in 2006. The share at large firms has grown from 6 percent to 22 percent over the same five years. At the same time, the survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that premiums for family plans rose 9 percent in 2011, after years of slower annual growth. A similar recent survey by the consulting firm Mercer found that yearly premium increases have been hovering around the 6 percent mark and will grow by slightly less in 2012. Why are costs up?
Premiums paid directly by workers have galloped ahead of wage increases and inflation — rising 131 percent between 2001 and 2011 for family plans. Employer costs for those plans have increased 113 percent over the same period. Still, employers primarily are coping with rising health-care expenses by moving workers into plans with higher out-of-pocket costs such as deductibles, co-pays and coinsurance. Peter Cunningham, a researcher at the Center for Studying Health System Change, has found that about one in every five families with employer-sponsored insurance was spending more than 10 percent of its income on out-of-pocket health-care costs by 2008 (the most recent year for which those statistics were available). Advocates for the new health-care law maintain its changes to the way Medicare pays for care ultimately could encourage providers to restructure in ways that slow the growth of private insurance costs substantially. Still, for the moment at least, “there’s not a sense for most people that their costs and benefits will be better under the new legislation if they already have insurance,” said Robert Blendon, a Harvard University professor who monitors public views on healthcare issues. That feeling, he said, helps explain the stubborn divide in public opinion on the law, which has remained evenly split since its adoption.

Cheap quit-smoking pill works, study says Peninsula Daily News news services
BOSTON — For as little as $6, there may be a smoking-cessation remedy that actually works. A clinical test of Tabex, sold in Eastern Europe for more than four decades, shows that the plant-based medicine can triple smokers’ chances of quitting compared with a dummy pill. The results of a study on 740 people were published last week in the New England Journal of Medicine. The tablet, developed and sold by Bulgaria’s Sopharma, may help smokers with limited means quit, scientists said. Most of the 6 million people who die from tobacco use each year are from low- and middle-income countries,
according to the World Health Organization. “The benefits of Tabex are comparable with those of other smoking-cessation treatments, but at a fraction of the cost,” Robert West of University College London’s Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, who led the research team, said in a statement. In the study, 8.4 percent of patients taking Tabex for 25 days with “minimal” counseling abstained from smoking for a year, compared with 2.4 percent of those given a placebo. The smokers who took the plant-based remedy reported more gastrointestinal upset, the research shows. Tabex tablets contain cytosine, a substance found
in the seeds of a tree called laburnum that produces yellow pea-flowers, which mimics the effect of nicotine. Pfizer’s Chantix, a smoking-cessation drug available in the U.S. and Europe on prescription, is also derived from cytosine. One week’s worth of tablets for a patient taking three a day costs about $63 on the website drugstore.com. A course of Tabex, which was first sold in Bulgaria in 1964, costs about $15 in Poland and $6 in Russia. The absolute difference in rates of tobacco abstinence between the two patient groups in the Tabex study was lower than for Chantix and similar to what has been found for nicotinereplacement therapy, the scientists wrote.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, That the Clallam County Department of Community Development, Planning Division, has issued a Determination of Non-Significance (DNS) on September 28, 2011, under SEPA Rules (Chapter 197-11350 WAC) and the Clallam County Environmental Policy Ordinance (Chapter 27.01) for the following proposal: Proposal: The proposal (ECL 2011-14) Clallam County Six-Year (2012 to 2017) Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The Six-Year TIP is updated annually and establishes the funding of upcoming transportation projects for the next six year period. The TIP includes transportation projects administered by Clallam County, such as county road projects, county trail projects, and county bridge projects. The Six-Year TIP is required by RCW 36.81.121. Location: Transportation projects subject to the Six Year TIP are distributed throughout the political boundaries of the County of Clallam in the State of Washington. SEPA: The Six Year TIP is a non-project action (per WAC 197-11-704(2)(b)). Phased review is a component of a non-project action. The lead agency determines the appropriate scope and level of detail of environmental review to coincide with meaningful points in the planning and decision-making processes. Environmental review may be phased if it assists agencies and the public to focus on issues that are ready for decision and exclude from consideration issues not yet ready. Broader environmental documents may be followed by narrower documents such as site specific analysis (project specific) per WAC 197-11-060(5) of SEPA Rules. When project actions (i.e. specific transportation projects) to implement the TIP are proposed, these project actions will be subject to further environmental review. The Clallam County Planning Department is lead agency for this proposal under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) and has issued a Determination of Non-Significance (DNS). Enclosed is a copy of the TIP, Determination of Non-Significance (DNS) for this non-project action, and Environmental Checklist. The threshold determination is made on September 28, 2011. Comments on the threshold determination will be received until October 12, 2011. This may be the only opportunity to comment on the environmental impacts of the proposal. Unless the Responsible Official withdraws the threshold determination pursuant to WAC 19711-340(3)(a), the threshold determination shall be final at the end of the comment period. Agencies and interested parties will be notified if the threshold determination is withdrawn. The threshold determination may appealed as part of the Board of County Commissioner’s final decision regarding the TIP. Pub: Oct. 2, 2011

Difficult to wake kids up for school EVERY SCHOOL YEAR, we go through great stress trying to get our three kids, ages 7, 9 and 11, woken up, dressed, fed and out the door for school. The biggest challenge is getting them out of bed to start their day. It doesn’t make for a very positive beginning for eight hours of school. What tips are there to help eliminate these crazy mornings?

Best friend not happy about woman’s upcoming nuptials DEAR JOHN: MY best friend hasn’t talked to me since I got engaged. In fact, when I told her the great news, she tried to talk me out of it! She told me that my fiance is all wrong for me, and that, now that we’re older than 40, there’s no need to get married. She said: “It’s not as if you’re going to have kids, right?” That really steamed me. Even if that is the case, it upsets me that she can’t be happy for me. I think she needs to apologize, even if she doesn’t want to come to the wedding, not that I’d invite her now. What do you think? — Engaged and Upset in Boca Raton, Fla.

It’s all about the
Woman beats cancer with help from doctors, friends, family
By Diane Urbani de la Paz for
PORT ANGELES — Alice Ramey calls them “an avalanche of angels.” In June 2010, Ramey received frightening news: She had breast cancer. “It was a complete surprise. Nobody in my family had had it. I have always been really healthy,” Ramey said. Yet Ramey, a keynote speaker at the sold-out Mad Hatter’s Tea this Friday in Sequim, did not get all that upset when given her diagnosis. A home health nurse at Olympic Medical Center, she worked for a few weeks before it hit her.
Facing the unknown “I called and said, ‘I don’t think I can come to work today,’” Ramey remembered. “And my supervisor said, ‘We’ve been expecting this.’” Facing surgery, chemotherapy and the unknown, “I was blubbering about ‘I don’t have anybody to take care of me.’” Then Ramey’s husband of 39 years, Dave, went to his computer. He sent out
an email. Then came the wave: friends, people from Independent Bible Church, more friends. So while Ramey has a relatively small family — she was an only child, and her parents Arthur and Viola Landry are deceased — she found herself engulfed in care. Whenever Dave, a real estate broker, wasn’t at her side, she had those “angels,” taking her to chemo treatments, calling and visiting.
ance; she underwent surgery July 25, 2010. That, as any cancer patient knows, was the beginning of a journey. It showed Ramey, a nurse for 40 years, the other side of healing. “There is emotional pain, and there is physical pain,” she said, adding that emotional pain can be the worst. But her experience has been that love from family — and friends who are like family — makes it bearable.
Soon after learning she had cancer, a fellow nurse, the late Ellen DeBondt, found Ramey a pretty perfect book. It’s Not About the Hair, and Other Certainties of Life & Cancer is by Debra Jarvis, a chaplain — and former breast cancer patient — at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. “You read it, and you cry,” Ramey said. But the book is also filled with humor-leavened perspective from the author who’s known as “the irreverent reverend.” Ramey’s local oncologist, Dr. Thomas Kummet, advised her to go to the Seattle Cancer Care Alli-
The people who have, as she says, “shown up,” include the Rameys’ sons John, 33, and Adam, 31, both busy commercial electricians in Seattle. Even though Adam works very long hours, he made sure he was there to wheel his mother out when she was released from the hospital. As soon as Ramey was up to it, the family went to see Teatro Zinzanni, the “love, chaos and dinner” show in Seattle; Dave was festive in a top hat. Ramey plans on wearing that to the Mad Hatter’s Tea, which is a veritable pageant of headgear. Turn

loud, wacky or weird as they want. Many alarm clocks play mp3s and/or CDs, so your kids could wake up to their favorite song or maybe one that particularly energizes and pumps them up. Then, each child will have an unusual sound to help wake them up in the mornings. To make things less hectic, try to be organized yourself before waking them up. This will provide you with more of an opportunity to be relaxed, calm and patient when an inevitable situation occurs that needs your direct attention.

day of her last treatment. “The linear accelerator is the best / Where they scribble with markers on your chest/ For the chemo, radiation and the knife/ Want to thank you all for saving my life,” the last verse goes. Ramey plans on handing out lyric sheets at the Mad Hatter’s Tea on Friday, so everybody can belt it out together. Pelett has watched her cousin face her illness with an attitude that blends of the spiritual and the temporal.
Faith “Alice has deep religious faith. She prayed a lot,” Pelett said. “And being a reasonably practical person, whenever she was feeling nauseous and needed something to settle her stomach, she went for wholesome foods. So she didn’t put on a lot of weight during her chemotherapy.” Pelett added that Ramey’s husband and her friends gave her unstinting moral support — along with cleaning the house when she was convalescing. These days, Ramey is back to work and then some. She went to Seattle twice last week: to see her doctor and to attend the a chronic care management training at the Holiday Inn at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. And in her Mad Hatter’s speech, Ramey will affirm what the tea is about: friendship and healing. “If you let people take care of you, and show you how they feel,” Ramey said, “it’s so much better.”

Sexual assault leaves behind questions WHEN NATALIE WAS 13, she began baby-sitting for a neighborhood family with two little girls. “The mother and I would often talk and see each other around the neighborhood,” she said. “I barely knew the father and only remember calling him Mr. Whatever and answering ‘Yes, sir’ and ‘No, sir’ to his questions.” When Natalie was 15, the Whatever family moved eight miles away. The first time they asked her to sit for them, they asked if she’d also watch their nextdoor neighbor’s children. The two couples were going out together. When they returned home, the two fathers got in a car to drive Natalie back.
Climbed in back “A block from their homes, the neighbor dad pulled over, and the dad I knew climbed into the back seat with me and said, ‘I’ve always fantasized about making out with the baby sitter,’” she said. “I could smell liquor on his breath. The neighbor drove around while Mr. Whatever kissed and groped me. I cried and begged him to stop. “After what was probably a much shorter time than it seemed, the neighbor pulled over and the men changed places,” she said. “I was hysterical. The neighbor was not nearly as

enthusiastic as the father I knew, and they soon took me home. “The neighbor walked me to the door and tried to give me an extra $20. I remember screeching at him to get away from me, and once I was in the screen door, I said, ‘I hope you remember this when your daughter is old enough to baby-sit.’ “Needless to say, I never went there again,” she said. “The mother told neighbors that I was almost 16, boy crazy and didn’t want to baby-sit anymore. I never told anyone what happened.”
and I told them the whole story,” she said. “My mother said, ‘What did you do to make him think you were that kind of girl?’ My father said, ‘Why didn’t you tell us?’ “I said because I knew everyone — just like my own mother — would think I had in some way caused this. “If you had asked, I

Did they deserve to go to jail or lose their wives and families over this?” she asked. “I don’t know. It seems
harsh, but they did molest a child. “I know Mr. Whatever read Playboy because I saw it in the bathroom,” she said. “Is this where he learned to fantasize about making out with the baby sitter? Was alcohol the deciding factor? Was this something they never would have done on their own, but with a friend they
felt free to try? Were they just perverts?” Readers, Natalie has asked a lot of questions. What do you think?

Her mother said, “He dropped dead of a heart attack last week, and he was only in his 40s.” Natalie said, “It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.” “Of course, my parents asked why I’d said that,
