The ex-Port Townsend police station and restroom are refurbished and might open this week.
New face of old PT downtown Former police station to become visitors center By Julie McCormick
For Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — The city’s refurbished visitors center may be ready to open to the public as early as Christmas Eve. But it’s more likely that the spiffed-up building, with modern public washrooms replacing the interim portable restrooms toward the end of Water Street, will be ready for public use by about New Year’s Day, said Tom Miller, project manager. “We’re very close at this point,” said Planning Director Rick Sepler, awaiting delivery of a door and then final inspection. The project was plagued by delay earlier when five buried fuel tanks were discovered during excavation around what had until recently been the city’s police station, with an adjacent aging public restroom housed in the historic Cotter Building, once a proud two-story waterfront structure. Cleanup — with the help of volunteers — was started in November 2009, and the cost went up to an estimated $1.17 million, Miller said. Miller said the city is hopeful of getting some additional state grant money for toxic cleanup to mitigate the cost. Turn

Crews work to clean up gooey oil on the harbor side of Ediz Hook in Port Angeles after a tanker spilled 239,000 gallons of crude Dec. 21, 1985.
Sad time for Peninsula But giant spill then provided lessons that are used now By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Twenty-five years ago Tuesday, environmental tragedy struck the North Olympic Peninsula. The Arco Anchorage, carrying 814,000 barrels of Alaskan crude oil, ran aground the afternoon of Dec. 21, 1985, as it entered Port Angeles Harbor. Oil began leaking almost immediately through two long gashes in the single-hull ship and spread throughout the harbor in an almost-clockwise direction — coating beaches, logs and wildlife in the process — before eventually spreading to Dungeness Spit and Neah Bay.
Oil spills from the grounded tanker Arco Anchorage.
The crew was able to stop the leak four hours later by transferring oil to another tank inside the ship, which hit rocks 800 yards north of the Rayonier pulp mill. But the damage had already been done. A total of 5,690 barrels — or 239,000 gallons — of oil escaped, making it the eighth largest spill in state history.
Thousands of oil-covered birds For Arnold Schouten, the worst part of the spill was seeing the thousands of helpless, oil-covered birds in the harbor and elsewhere along the Strait of Juan de Fuca. More than 4,000 fowl perished. An unknown number of harbor seals, shellfish, salmon and otters also died. “It’s still heartbreaking to see those birds drenched in oil,” said the 60-year-old Port Angeles-area resident who used to own Hartnagel Building Supply.

Brooks in concert It was like Garth Brooks had never been away. A multigenerational crowd sang along with country music’s biggest star as he kicked Brooks off the first of nine sold-out flood relief benefit concerts Thursday night in Nashville, Tenn. Brooks hadn’t played an arena show in Music City since 1998, but fans didn’t miss a beat as Brooks played hit after hit for the crowd. Most fans stayed standing for the 11⁄2-hour performance as Brooks and his band motored through favorites such as “Friends in Low Places,” “The Thunder Rolls” and “The Dance.” Brooks’ wife, Trisha Yearwood, and good friend Steve Wariner joined Brooks on stage for a few songs each.
THURSDAY’S QUESTION: What is your initial reaction to Gov. Chris Gregoire’s proposed budget cuts?
The family moved to Lancaster, Calif., where he found a high school classmate with a similar subversive sensibility and love of the blues and jazz: Frank Zappa. Their collaborations eventually led to the 1964 formation of the first edition of Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band, which played local dances and developed a sound that showcased their leader’s gruff, powerful voice. Beefheart and company, joined by young slide guitar prodigy Ry Cooder, rerecorded the songs, and “Safe as Milk” came out on Buddah Records in 1967. Its experimental spin on traditional blues attracted a cult audience, but Mr. Van Vliet proved too prickly to cultivate a conventional career. Zappa produced “Trout Mask Replica,” whose sound was forged during intensive, communal rehearsals in a Woodland Hills, Calif., house, with Mr. Van Vliet exerting domineering control over his musicians. He gave them names such as Zoot Horn Rollo and the Mascara Snake, and they turned out a unique masterpiece.

Charles M. “Chuck” Jordan, 83, a former General Motors vice president of design whose early successes as a chief designer included the 1958 Chevrolet Corvette and 1959 Cadillac Eldorado, a spaceage icon with enormous tail fins, has died. Mr. Jordan died of lymphoma Dec. 9 at his home near San Diego, said his wife, Sally. In his 43-year career at GM, Mr. Jordan was involved in designing vehicles such as the 1958 Corvette and the 1968 Opel GT. In 1986, he became the fourth man in GM history to be named vice president of design. When he retired as design chief in 1992, one staffer reportedly called Mr. Jordan “the last of the great design dinosaurs.”

Don Van Vliet, 69, a maverick musician who emerged from the California desert with the name Captain Beefheart and a singular and influential form of avant-garde rock in the 1960s, died Friday. Mr. Van Vliet, who retreated to a reclusive life as an abstract painter in the early 1980s, died Mr. from compli- Van Vliet cations of multiple sclerosis at a hospital near his home in Trinidad in Northern California, said a spokeswoman for the Michael Werner Gallery, his New York-based art dealer. Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band never sold many records, but their work was critically acclaimed, especially the epic, surreal 1969 album “Trout Mask Replica,” which was ranked No. 58 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Mr. Van Vliet’s creative vision exerted an influence on a wide range of musicians, including the White Stripes, Tom Waits, Devo, PJ Harvey, the Talking Heads and John Lydon. Avowed admirers include members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Clash and “The Simpsons” creator Matt Groening. Mr. Van Vliet was born Don Vliet (he added the “Van” as a young man) in Glendale, Calif., on Jan. 15, 1941, and showed such a talent for sculpture that he was offered a scholarship to study in Europe. But his parents didn’t encourage his artistic leanings.

Marijuana battleground SAN JOSE, Calif. — As marijuana goes mainstream in communities across California, the state’s third-largest city has become the next big battleground over the drug’s future. Medical marijuana retailers this fall have faced raids and stings by narcotics agents who accuse them of old-fashioned drug trafficking, even as the San Jose City Council debated regulations for pot dispensaries
and voters approved a cannabis tax to fill depleted city coffers. The crackdown highlights a stubborn legal reality that persists despite a growing sense that storefront pot shops have become a permanent part of the California landscape: The law around medical marijuana is vague, and you can still get busted. “They’re trying to make money off it, and that’s ridiculous,” Bob Cooke, the state Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement agent overseeing the raids, said of the dispensary owners who have been targeted. Medical marijuana advocates said the raids have undermined efforts by dispensaries to comply with the law and to act as good neighbors who have much to contribute to the city’s hardhit economy.

Briefly: World Pakistan denies it exposed CIA station chief ISLAMABAD — Pakistan’s main spy agency denied Saturday it had unmasked the CIA’s station chief in Islamabad and warned such allegations could damage its already fragile counterterrorism alliance with the United States. The CIA pulled its top spy out of Pakistan on Thursday amid death threats after his name emerged publicly a few weeks ago from a Pakistani man threatening to sue the CIA over the alleged deaths of his son and brother in a 2009 U.S. missile strike. The attorney involved with the complaint said he learned the name from Pakistani journalists. But the station chief’s outing has spurred questions of whether Pakistan’s spy service might have leaked the information. Lawsuits filed last month in New York City in connection with the 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai, India, also may have raised tensions by naming Pakistan’s intelligence chief as a defendant.
and wounded at least nine people, authorities said. The gunbattle between NATO forces and insurgents took place in the Tagab district of Kapisa province, where coalition forces called in air support after their patrol came under fire, NATO said. It claimed Taliban commanders were among the more than 20 insurgents killed. A day earlier, more than five insurgents were killed in a three-hour firefight in the same district following sniper fire on Afghan and international forces manning a checkpoint, NATO said. The coalition did not say what nationality the international troops were, but French forces are stationed in the area.

Senate votes to end ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ By Anne Flaherty The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — In a historic vote for gay rights, the Senate agreed Saturday to do away with the military’s 17-year ban on openly gay troops and sent President Barack Obama legislation to overturn the Clinton-era policy known as “don’t ask, don’t tell.” Obama was expected to sign the bill into law next week, although changes to military policy probably wouldn’t take effect for at least several months. Under the bill, the president and his top military advisers must first certify that lifting the ban won’t hurt troops’ ability to fight. After that, the military would undergo a 60-day wait period. Repeal would mean that, for the first time in American history, gays would be openly accepted by the armed forces and could acknowledge their sexual orientation without fear of being kicked out. More than 13,500 service members have been dismissed under the 1993 law. “It is time to close this chapter in our history,” Obama said in a statement. “It is time to recognize that sacrifice, valor and integrity are no more defined by sexual orientation than they are by race or gender, religion or creed.” The Senate voted 65-31 to pass the bill, with eight Republicans siding with 55 Democrats and two independents in favor of repeal. The House had passed an identical version of the bill, 250-175, earlier this week.
Republicans block youth immigration bill The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans on Saturday doomed an effort that would have given hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants a path to legal status if they enrolled in college or joined the military. Sponsors of the Dream Act fell five votes short of the 60 they needed to break through largely GOP opposition and win its enactment before Republicans take over the House and narrow Democrats’ majority in the Senate next month. President Barack Obama called the vote “incredibly disappointing.” Dozens of immigrants Supporters hailed the Senate vote as a major step forward for gay rights. Many activists hope that integrating openly gay troops within the military will lead to greater acceptance in the civilian world, as it did for blacks after President Harry Truman’s 1948 executive order on equal treatment regardless of race in the military. “The military remains the great equalizer,” said Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass. “Just like we did after President Truman desegregated the military, we’ll someday look back
wearing graduation mortarboards watched from the Senate’s visitors gallery, disappointment on their faces, as the 55-41 vote was announced. Critics called the bill a backdoor grant of amnesty that would encourage more foreigners to sneak into the United States in hopes of being legalized eventually. The legislation would have provided a route to legal status for an estimated 1 million to 2 million illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. before age 16, have been here for five years, graduated from high school or gained an equivalency degree, and who joined the military or attend college. and wonder what took Washington so long to fix it.” Sen. John McCain, Obama’s GOP rival in 2008, led the opposition. Speaking on the Senate floor minutes before a crucial test vote, the Arizona Republican acknowledged he couldn’t stop the bill. He blamed elite liberals with no military experience for pushing their social agenda on troops during wartime. “They will do what is asked of them,” McCain said of service members. “But don’t think there won’t be a great cost.”

Southern California will be hit especially hard by the storms, and officials were preparing for possible mudslides in Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. “This is one big mother, and it’s going to have a lot of waves in it,” National Weather Service spokesman Bill Hoffer said. The storms could be the largest system the region has seen in the last decade, the agency said
A Roman Catholic tribunal has defrocked a monsignor who once led fundraising for the Archdiocese of New York after deciding he had molested a teenage student in the 1980s. The archdiocese announced the decision regarding Monsignor Charles Kavanagh on Friday. The panel’s action came eight years after a man came forward and claimed that the clergyman had touched him inappropriately when he was a boy and climbed into his bed during a trip to Washington, D.C. Kavanagh’s sister and lawyer, Ann Mandt, said the church’s decision was an attempt to cover up its mishandling of other sex abuse cases by cracking down on an innocent man.
Military maneuvers planned by South Korean troops did not take place Saturday because of bad weather on a border island shelled by North Korea last month, as the U.N. Security Council scheduled an emergency meeting at Russia’s request amid concerns over rising tensions on the divided peninsula. The North warned Friday that it would strike even harder than before if the South went ahead with planned one-day firing drills it said it will conduct sometime between Saturday and Tuesday. Four people died last month in the North’s attack on Yeonpyeong Island near the tense sea border.
The man who refuses to step down from the presidency ordered thousands of U.N. peacekeepers to leave Ivory Coast immediately Saturday, calling the global body that has endorsed his political rival an “agent of destabilization.” The move was the latest act of political defiance by Laurent Gbagbo, who has been in power since 2000 and maintains he is the rightful winner of last month’s runoff vote in the West African nation despite growing international pressure on him to concede defeat. The statement read on state television came just two days after as many as 30 people were killed in street violence in Ivory Coast.

OMC center prepares for tech upgrade By Jeff Chew
Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — Two large and heavy prefabricated sections for Olympic Medical Cancer Center’s temporary cancer radiation treatment center slowly rolled into the city on flatbed trucks last week. The units make up a temporary radiotherapy vault by Aventura, Fla.based RAD Technology LLC. The vault will operate until the cancer center decommissions and dismantles its previous linear accelerator and vault to construct the vault required to house the Varian TrueBeam linear accelerator, which uses a more precise radiation technology for treating cancer patients.
First in Northwest The Sequim center is the only cancer treatment center on the North Olympic Peninsula — and the new Varian TrueBeam linear accelerator — developed in Palo Alto, Calif. — is the first such technology in the Pacific Northwest, OMC Cancer Center officials said. The new building and linear accelerator are scheduled to be fully operational
by April 15 after the accelerator is tested. A tall crane last week lifted the temporary sections onto a site next to the hospital’s cancer center on North Fifth Avenue in Sequim. The old facility and treatment technology will be removed Jan. 10, and a new permanent center will be built for the $2.7 million linear accelerator. “It’s a big investment,” said Eric Lewis, Olympic Medical Center administrator and chief executive officer, adding that it will give the hospital’s Sequim cancer center the edge in providing a world-class facility. The technology will allow radiation oncologists to treat tumors with a high dose of radiation to a precise location without damaging surrounding tissue. A $225,000-per-year maintenance contract for the new machine will run from 2012 to 2015. “Our goal was to bring the latest radiotherapy technology to the cancer patients we serve,” said Dr. Rena Zimmerman, medical director of radiation oncology at the OMC Cancer Center. “Thanks to RAD’s transitional unit, we can maintain our patient-centered
focus by continuing to provide care as we upgrade our facility.”
Continue care The temporary portable building — which is equipped with a preinstalled linear accelerator and state-of-the-art radiation shielding technology — will provide an efficient and effective solution to managing patient treatments during the upgrade process, Zimmerman said. The temporary facility is being rented for $450,000 for three months so the cancer center can continue treatments without interruption, Lewis said. “We can’t stop treating cancer for 90 days or tell people to go elsewhere,” he said. Between 20 and 40 Peninsula patients are treated daily by a linear accelerator. The temporary RAD system duplicates the cancer center’s processes in a compact and temporary package, allowing patient treatments to continue as the new treatment system is installed. OMC commissioners in September approved the temporary vault and linear accelerator to be used for three months during the

Workers set up a temporary cancer radiation treatment center, a prefabricated building that was delivered and installed with a tall crane, near Olympic Medical Cancer Center off North Fifth Avenue in Sequim last week. removal of the old machine and installation of the new one. Zimmerman in September said the difference between the new machine and the 8-year-old equipment at the cancer center is akin to the difference between 35 mm film and a digital camera. The machine has a dose rate that is the highest available on the market, Zimmerman said, and it cuts down treatment time
by 75 percent. The new linear accelerator will enable doctors to perform stereotactic cancer therapy, a more precise delivery of radiation. Stereotactic radiation treatment can be used for brain, liver and other forms of cancers. The combination of the TrueBeam linear accelerator and the hospital’s new CT scanner also will allow for “gating,” hospital officials said. Gating enables doctors
to treat breast and other cancers without damaging nearby organs as a patient breathes and the tumor moves. Hospital officials said Olympic Medical Center will share information about its new machine with Seattle Cancer Center, an affiliate.

HOQUIAM — The state Transportation Department said the U.S. Highway 101 bridge in Hoquiam should be reopened in early January. The 83-year-old Simpson Avenue bridge on the Hoquiam River was closed Aug. 5 when inspectors found that damaged timber pilings were causing it to shift. Transportation representatives provided an update on repairs last week to the Hoquiam Business Association, KBKWAM said. The bridge normally carries about 13,000 vehicles a day and is on a route to coastal beaches.

Clallam Public Health Heroes recognized By Paige Dickerson
new — an atypical choice for the award, Melmed said. “We usually don’t pick a program that is that new,” she said. “But the fact that was evidence-based and proven effective really made them stand out.”
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Role models in many forms were honored with Clallam County Public Health Hero awards this month. The third annual Public Health Heroes awards, presented at a ceremony Dec. 10 in the county commissioners’ boardroom, recognized individual and group effort, as well as innovation and youth. Winners are: ■ Beth Loveridge — individual award. ■ League of Women Voters — group award. ■ The Arts and Minds Early Memory Loss Program — innovative award. ■ Port Angeles High School Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) Program — youth award. “Public health is the science of protecting and improving the health of communities,” said Mel Melmed, chairwoman of the Clallam County Public Health Advisory Committee, which selects the winners of the awards. “It is done through the education and promotion of healthy lifestyle, research of disease and injury prevention.” Port Angeles Fire Chief Dan McKeen said the awards were begun in order to honor those who were furthering public health and encouraging others to do so as well.
Individual award Loveridge took on the mission of changing how school children eat. “Beth has been a tireless leader working to improve nutrition for children in our schools,” Melmed said. Loveridge, a member of the Port Angeles School District’s Nutrition and Physical Activity Advisory Committee, has been working since 2007 to gather support for healthier foods in schools. This year, the School

Not pictured is Beth Loveridge, who won the individual award. Board approved a contract with Sodexo, which provides food services for the district, that requires healthier meals and more local food. “She spent years working to improve the nutrition in schools,” Melmed said. “The result of that was when Jefferson School adopted healthier policies. “They were able to implement more fruits and vegetables and found that students liked it and parents liked it.” Loveridge said she was inspired in 2007 when she found and arranged a screening of a movie titled “Two Angry Moms” — a documentary about food in schools. Later this year or early next year, she plans an interview with the movie creator, Amy Kalafa, for a
new project, as well as a children’s food blog, www. thelunchtray.com. “I’m very honored, of course, and I think it says a lot about our community, too,” Loveridge said about the award. “I wouldn’t have gotten very far if the tests at Jefferson hadn’t been a success — and it was a success because the community stood up and spoke up and the school district listened. “I’m really proud of our community and school district.”
because of all the efforts they made to share information about health care and bring various groups from across the county together to discuss important public health issues of our time,” she said. The group has held multiple forums over the past several years, said Lou Templeton, president of the organization. Sara Johnson, who leads the health committee, also organized forums to explain the federal Health Care Bill, Templeton said.
The League of Women Voters of Clallam County provided the public with information about health care reform, Melmed said. “They were selected
Olympic Community Action Programs’ weekly Arts and Minds Early Memory Loss Program targets people with the beginnings of dementia.
Port Angeles High School students in the Distributive Education Clubs of America — or DECA — Program were recognized for their work in organizing and promoting blood drives. “Through those drives, they were able to provide also health promotion and education,” Melmed said. The students’ adviser, Lora Brabant, nominated the group of about 40 students. “I have them do quite a bit of community service,” she said. “It is like a complete training process, and every year, it is really well-organized.” Every year, an older student will select and train a younger student to be the coordinator of blood drives the following year. “They do a lot of really great things,” she said. “Sometimes, older people think about kids and think ‘Oh, those little whippersnappers.’ “But they really are organized and know what they are doing.” The students organized three blood drives that drew 360 students, Brabant said. “That is enough blood to save 1,080 lives,” she said. The Public Health Advisory Committee meets periodically to discuss issues to bring before the Public Health Board. There are multiple openings on the committee. For more information, phone 360-417-2329.
“There is a gap in services during the early diagnosis period,” said Jim Couture, director of Arts and Minds. “There are basically no programs available until they reach the middle stage [of dementia], when people end up searching for an adult day care .” The program uses music and arts to strengthen and maintain cognitive function, optimize abilities and reduce stress for people with dementia. “It is really important; it includes an entire network of programs that are leaders in establishing these programs,” Couture said. __________ Ongoing funding is provided by the Brookdale Reporter Paige Dickerson can Foundation. be reached at 360-417-3535 or at The program, which paige.dickerson@peninsuladaily began earlier this year, is news.com.

Marlow said Betts is now also charged with money laundering because she is alleged to have falsified documents to steal the funds and is also believed to have spent some of it. But how much is still not clear.
PORT ANGELES — A woman accused of stealing $617,467 in public funds through the Clallam County Treasurer’s Office could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted. Catherine Betts, 46, is charged in Clallam County Superior Court with one count of first-degree theft, one count of money laundering and 19 counts of filing false or fraudulent tax returns with the state Department of Revenue. Until Tuesday, she faced only the theft charge. That charge comes with a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. The new charges, with two aggravated enhancements, bump Betts’ potential prison time up to 20 years if she is found guilty, said Scott Marlow, state assistant attorney general. Betts, a former cashier
in the Treasurer’s Office, allegedly stole the funds — all real estate excise tax revenue — by manipulating and destroying paper and computer records. Marlow, who is prosecuting the case, said he added the charge of filing false tax returns to the case because Betts had a role in reporting real estate excise tax income to the state each month. Since she is alleged to have falsified records, those tax reports would have been inaccurate, he said. County Treasurer Judy Scott said Betts was one of two employees who were responsible for reporting the income. Scott said Betts would provide the figures to an accountant, who then filed the paperwork with the state. A state Auditor’s Office investigation found that the

Annual Jazz in the Olympics festival canceled — for good By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — The Jazz in the Olympics festival is no more. Festival Director Gary Sorenson announced Friday that the Jazz in the Olympics Society will not hold the event featuring Dixieland and swing jazz this spring, or ever again. Sorenson said that the organization canceled its scheduled April 1-3 dates because it will not be able to use the Red Lion Hotel as one of its venues as it had planned. And since the event will not be held in 2011, the organization won’t try it again in 2012, he said. “You can’t jump-start a festival,” said Sorenson, 75, of Sequim. “It’s tough to get people back.”
The festival — which drew an estimated attendance of between 2,200 and 2,500 earlier this year — started as an annual event in 1999. The loss of the Red Lion conference rooms, which Sorenson attributed to upcoming renovations, was a deal breaker because the festival could offer only seven bands, instead of the 10 it has been advertising “across the nation,” the director said. Reimbursements will be made. The festival had planned to also use the Vern Burton Community Center, Port Angeles council chambers and the Elks Lodge. Sorenson said Masonic Temple is the only other building that is big enough with a stage and dance floor.
It won’t be used because of poor acoustics, he said. Sorenson also said that venues in Sequim — where the event was initially held until 2000 — will not be used because it would create too large of a distance between locations. “You can’t make people drive between Port Angeles and Sequim,” he said. “That will not work.” The festival ran into trouble last year when the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce decided to no longer run it on the Jazz in the Olympics Society’s behalf. The chamber had run it for the preceding three years.

The service will recognize and honor the loneliness, isolation and “new or returning sorrow” that the holidays can bring. “All are welcome at this beautiful, candlelit ecumenical service, which welcomes our darkness as it provides a place to remember that the light of Christ has been sent to overcome it,” the church said. And while the winter solstice marks the dark, depressing depths of winter, it also can be point of hope. After Tuesday, the nights, minute by minute, will get shorter — and the days will get longer.

Spill: One of most prepared states in U.S. now Continued from A1 “Some were hard to distinguish what species they were, they were so saturated with oil.” Schouten was one of the approximately 2,400 volunteers who helped rescue wildlife. Many worked 12- to 16-hour days washing birds at a care center initially located at Port Angeles High School and later moved to a warehouse on South Oak Street. “It had an impact on a lot of people in this community,” Schouten said. About 1,560 birds made it to the care center funded by Arco, the petroleum company since absorbed by BP LLC. Of that amount, about 18 percent, or 280, were released back into the wild. “Those release rates today could be a lot better with what is now known with care of birds,” said Schouten, who has since participated in bird cleanup efforts at two other spills. The cleanup cost Arco $13 million and was suspended April 7, 1986. About half of the oil — 131,292 gallons — was recovered.
Routine stop The spill occurred on a routine stop to Port Angeles. The Arco Anchorage, like many other tankers, stopped in the harbor while waiting its turn to dock at the Cherry Point Refinery north of Bellingham. The weather was calm, and visibility reached three miles, according to a spill report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. As required by state law, piloting duties on the 883foot tanker had just been taken over by a captain certified to ply waters east of Ediz Hook. Capt. Raymond Leson, with Puget Sound Pilots, was found partially responsible for the spill. Leson — who already had 10 ship mishaps on his record, including the grounding of a freighter off of Point Wilson in 1983 — and Arco were both fined $30,000. Known for their expertise in navigating state waters, the pilots guide all cargo, oil and cruise ships to and from Puget Sound.
Lessons from the spill
That’s particularly significant for Port Angeles, since its harbor hosts more tankers than any other in the state, he said. About 200 stop in the harbor each year for repairs or to wait their turn at the state’s five refineries, said Mark Ashley, Coast Guard’s director for Puget Sound traffic.

First safe port of call
“When these ships are coming in . . . coming down from Alaska, their first safe port of call is Port Angeles. If a ship is coming from California . . . by the time they get past the Columbia River, their first safe port of call is Port Angeles,” Hart said. “Virtually about 90 percent of oil tankers, or even more, either come in or go past Port Angeles.” But change did not come immediately, nor did it happen before another spill hit Washington waters. Three years later in December 1988, a barge leaked 230,000 gallons of oil off Ocean Shores. Following those spills and the Exxon Valdez disaster off the coast of Alaska in March 1989, the state Legislature passed new laws regarding oil spill prevention and response, Hart An oil skimmer passes the Arco Anchorage in Port Angeles Harbor in January 1986. said.
Legislation in 1990 In part, the legislation, which went into effect in 1990, gave the state authority to seek compensation for damage done to the environment, he said. That was missing in 1985. It also created the Office of Marine Safety and requires oil companies to have contingency plans for spills, including the ability to clean 100 birds within 24 hours, Hart said. New team management procedures were also enacted for pilots and ship officers. Today, Port Angeles is a staging site for the Marine Spill Response Corp., which is funded by oil companies, and hosts a slew of response boats, including skimmers and barges. An emergency response tug boat is also stationed at Neah Bay to ensure disabled vessels don’t cause a spill in or near the strait. Schouten said he thinks
there’s still “a lot of room for improvement” but added, “I think we are better prepared now.” Hart said Ecology has about a dozen inspectors responsible for overseeing compliance with oil spill prevention laws. The spills program had eight positions cut in 2009, including inspectors and other positions that work with companies to make sure they’re prepared for a spill, he said. That has resulted in fewer drills and evaluations, Hart said.
He said he thinks the state is still well-protected. “We are as ready as we possibly can be with the limited resources that we have,” Hart said.

Despite the damage to the environment and economy, valuable lessons have been learned from the spill, said Curt Hart, spokesman for the state Department of Ecology’s spills program. “What we’ve really had is a change in thinking about oil spills . . . they are not the cost of doing business,” he said. Since the spill, new laws on spill prevention and response have been enacted, making Washington one of the most prepared states in the nation, Hart said.

Daily Hurricane Ridge access celebrated By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — After four months of waiting, it has finally happened. The limited extended weekend schedule for Hurricane Ridge during late fall and winter lapsed last week, and a slew of government officials gathered at the visitor center there Friday with representatives of area business and tourism organizations to welcome the start of all-week access to the popular Olympic National Park destination. “This is the spirit of Port Angeles,” Port Angeles City Council member Cherie Kidd told the 50 people at the ceremony. She was referring to the approximately $77,000 raised in donations to help pay for additional snowplowing that allows the road to be open seven days a week. The donation drive ended in August. Contributions included $5,000 from the city of Sequim, $20,000 from Clallam County and $20,000 from the city of Port Angeles. Another $250,000 in federal funds is being used to keep the road open daily, weather dependent, yearround. “This is a really good example of a tremendous partnership between the
Civic and ONP officials gather for an official opening ceremony of seven-day-a-week Hurricane Ridge Road access Friday. community and the park service,” said park Superintendent Karen Gustin. The Department of Interior is providing the matching funds on a trial basis for up to three years. The fundraising effort will likely have to start again next year to keep the trial going, unless more federal funds are allocated. Among those gathered at the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center on Friday was a staff member for Rep. Norm Dicks, who represents the 6th Congressional District, which includes the North Olympic Peninsula. Dicks, D-Belfair, helped secure the federal funding on a trial basis.
The Ridge offers downhill and cross-country skiing, snowboarding, guided snowshoe walks and sledding. Also starting Friday was twice-a-day shuttle service to the Ridge from Port Angeles. Willie Nelson’s All Points Charters & Tours is providing the service Wednesdays through Sundays from the Port Angeles Visitor Center, in front of The Landing mall, 121 E. Railroad Ave., and from the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St. The departing times are 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The shuttle returns to Port Angeles at about 11 a.m. and 3:45 p.m.
The cost is $10 per person. The park entrance fee via shuttle is $5 for those without a pass. Nelson said he charges $20 if someone wants to leave at 9 a.m. and return at 3:45 p.m. The additional cost is for saving the seat, he said. Nelson said he took a full load (13 passengers) on the first trip Friday, but that was mostly people going to the celebration. He said he took another two up on the second trip. The Ridge was closed Saturday because of bad weather. Nelson said he has booked trips for two people Wednesday and “several
The hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The rope tow and poma lift, operated by the Hurricane Ridge Ski Club, will be open only Saturdays, Sundays and Monday holidays. The ski season may start Dec. 26, said George Lawrence, club president. Aramark, the company that provides concessions at the center, is now opening its shop Fridays. Previously, it was only open Saturdays and Sundays. “We felt that it was a good change moving forward,” said Chris McKinley, sales director for Aramark. He said the concessions aren’t open the rest of the week because it’s “difficult to gauge” how many more people will go to the Ridge. Nelson said he doesn’t have a problem with customers bringing their ski or snowboard equipment onboard but that reservations are recommended. They can be made by phoning him at 360-4607131. If driving to the Ridge, always phone the Road & Weather hot line at 360-5653131 first to make sure a sudden snowstorm hasn’t closed the road.

Since an extra $2,000 was raised than needed through donations, those funds will be used to subsidize the shuttle service if needed, Russ Veenema, Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce executive director, said in November. Veenema said Friday that the chamber is starting its television advertisements in the Puget Sound area early this year in order ________ to promote the additional Ridge access.

Couple: ‘Fear is gone’
with policy’s repeal Continued from A1
“People are serving who know that at any moment, they could be discharged in disgrace,” said Persall earlier last week. Persall said that 13,500 people were “kicked out of services for being gay” after “don’t ask, don’t tell” came into effect. “It didn’t give you any more right to be there” if anyone found out, she said. “Now that this is lifted, the fear is gone,” Persall said. “They won’t be able to kick you out for being who you are.”
The House had repealed the policy Wednesday, sending the Senate legislation that would end the 1993 law that forbid recruiters from asking about sexual orientation and troops from acknowledging that they were gay. “It’s a very proud day for us. Our country is standing up for us,” Wickman said, after telling a reporter who phoned the couple Saturday that “we just got through crying.” Said Persall: “We are able to breathe free air. “We don’t have to live in Policy hits home fear.”
Wrote letters Persall, 57 and a veteran of 21 years, and Wickman, 45 and a 22-year veteran, helped make it happen. They wrote letters explaining the detrimental effects of former President Bill Clinton’s 1993 “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy as part of a letter-writing campaign to the Comprehensive Review Working Group that Defense Secretary Robert Gates appointed to conduct a comprehensive review of the impacts of the policy. Retired Navy Cmdr. Beth Coye, author of My Navy Too, spearheaded the letter-writing campaign. Persall and Wickman met with Coye in her Ashland, Ore., living room and agreed to help in the campaign to “tell some of our issues,” Wickman said. The two, who have been together for eight years, believe they were the only contributors to that effort from the North Olympic Peninsula. Forty-one letters went to the president’s desk, said the couple. “Those letters told our side of the story,” Wickman said.
‘It was still illegal’ Said Persall: “What people don’t realize . . . is that ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ was a compromise by Clinton. “He compromised by saying, ‘We’ll let them serve.’ “The problem with that was it was still illegal.” Persall said that both of them were always valued for their abilities in the Coast Guard. “I give the Coast Guard credit. We were able to serve. It really came down to ‘Can you do your job?’ We were allowed to serve with no questions.” Nevertheless, legally, “don’t ask, don’t tell” offered no protection to the estimated 65,000 gays in the military — a number based on government belief that 10 percent of the population is gay, she said.
Wickman told of the time the implications of the policy really hit home. She had been injured in a car wreck in Louisiana and had phoned both her commanding officer and her partner, Persall, who by then was retired but who had followed her to her duty station. There, the two kept their relationship secret. “It was really difficult to keep her from my conversation at all,” Wickman said. But when she was hurt, she wanted her partner close. However, her commanding officer arrived at the scene of the wreck before Persall. “I could see [Persall] running up to hug me, and all I was thinking was, ‘Please don’t touch me,’” Wickman said. “I didn’t know how to explain her to him.” Persall said that both now wish they were still active duty to more fully savor the victory. “We’re so glad for those who are on active duty who can serve without fear of losing their job, fear of losing it publicly. “It’s a public humiliation when you are kicked out like that.”
Careers Persall retired from the Coast Guard in 2004. Wickman retired in 2009. Persall — recipient of a meritorious service medal, commendation medal, achievement medal, commandant’s letter of commendation ribbon and sea service ribbon, among others — was in the first group of enlisted woman to go to sea with the Coast Guard in 1979. She became one of the first women “Throttlemen,” a watch position that controls engine room responses to emergencies and routine responses to bridge commands. She served as a boat engineer, an engineering instructor and as a new officer was
a plank owner and a damage control assistant aboard the Coast Guard cutter Legare in Portsmouth, Va. Wickman’s assignments included stints with Coast Guard Group Port Angeles and management of the Coast Guard’s security zone around the east-half replacement work on the Hood Canal Bridge in 2009. She is the recipient of a meritorious service medal, six commendation medals, an achievement medal and three enlisted good conduct medals. Persall said in her letter that she retired because of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. “The government that I served, I also feared. I feared the service would find out that I was gay,” her letter said. “Homosexuality is not a crime in the United States and it shouldn’t be reflected as one in the [Uniform Code of Military Justice],” Persall’s letter said. “The UCMJ should be updated to identify sexual based crimes that are similarly stated in state and federal laws.” In a biography cover sheet accompanying her letter, Wickman said she retired one year short of attaining full retirement pay as a lieutenant commander because of “fear of losing my pension and fatigue from keeping up a false front.” In her letter, Wickman said early retirement came after her “dream job” as chief waterways management for Sector Seattle, which put her in charge of the “largest and most diverse waterway in the nation,” Puget Sound, as the top safety office responsible for navigational safety, pollution and other threats to the waterways. “I miss my Coast Guard family dearly — most of whom knew I was gay; however, I missed living a truthful and open life much more,” Wickman said. Although the change won’t take effect for another 60 days at least, both said they were proud of their contribution to it. “We’re proud to be part of the struggle and to see the struggle end,” Persall said. “We were honored to be part of that movement. “We were so honored to be part of the military.”

Do whatever a lousy title can You may have heard about the new Spider-Man musical on Broadway. Apparently, the production is suffering all sorts of problems. Aerialists are breaking Michael wrists and feet, the budget has Showalter boiled over $65 million, and a radioactive spider bites the main guy — almost immediately! Talk about bad luck. You want to know what I think? I think all the money lost, all the concussions suffered and all the ill-fitting spandex can be blamed on one supervillain — the title, “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.” This title is a real headscratcher. Well, specifically the part after the colon; the part before the colon is fine. More than fine. I like it! It’s very informative and helpful. Who is this musical about? Spider-Man! What kind of man is he? A spidery man! It’s the after-the-colon part I can’t wrap my head around. “Turn Off the Dark”? Turn off the — what? The dark? How? How do you expect me to turn off the dark? I suppose I could do that by turning on the light. But then just tell me to turn on the light! I mean, does the title of your musical really have to be a brainteaser?
Semantics aside, I’m not altogether clear that this subtitle serves much purpose. A subtitle, as far as I, Professor Michael Showalter, Ph.D. (pending), am concerned, should introduce some important new information, or hint at what’s going down. “Star Wars: Episode V — The Empire Strikes Back” is a very successful subtitled title. Why? Because we know that in this installment, the Empire will, you guessed it, strike back! How about this: “Star Wars: Chicken and Rice”? Less successful, although certainly intriguing, and . . . You know what? That’s a bad example of a bad subtitle because “Star Wars: Chicken and Rice” actually sounds awesome. My point is this: Be prepared to deliver on your subtitle. “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” better have a song up its spidey sleeve about the power bill. (And by the same token, I’d expect “Star Wars: Chicken and Rice” to include an epic battle scene between intergalactic space hens and grains of varying size and nutritive value.) But I’m doubtful there is such a song in the show. And that’s just misleading marketing. Am I saying that the producers of “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” cursed themselves from the start by subtitling an otherwise flawless and in no way problematic production with a subtitle so flawed and way problematic as “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark”? No, I didn’t say that. Am I implying it? Mmm, perhaps. Am I also implying that I could do
Subtitling is hard, I know. Not everyone can do it. But if you’re going to try it, don’t be vague or cryptic. Which would you rather rent: “Apocalypse Now” or “Apocalypse Now: Sometimes”? Um, “Apocalypse Now” is title enough, thank you. And don’t get lost in the poetry, guys. Poetry, shmoetry! “Turn Off the Dark” may seem totally mysterious and alluring, but the more I think about it, the more irritated I get — and I really want to get irritated while reading a title. “Driving Miss Daisy” or “Driving Miss Daisy: Turn Left at Life”? Turn left at life? Is Life a crosswalk at the intersection of Existence and Humanity? If so, why? And where? Finally, don’t get too smart. Had “Big” been called “Big: What Does It Even Mean To Be An Adult?” I would’ve run screaming from that theater and thereby deprived myself the distinct joy of watching Tom Hanks jump on a bunk bed. Obvious subtitles, those are fine. Encouraged even. I really would’ve appreciated something like “127 Hours: Be Forewarned He Saws His Arm Off” before sitting down to see that one.
________ Poster from the Broadway musical: Does the subtitle have to be a brainteaser? better subtitling? Oh, for sure. How about “Spider-Man: The Musical”? I can’t believe this great title was completely overlooked. Or what about “Spider-Man:
On Broadway”? Or, if you want to get a little “out-of-the-box,” as seems to be the thing these days, how about “Spider-Man: Spider Sing, Spider Dance”?

Peninsula Voices Life-changing Our 3-year-old grandson caught his first trout on Lake Sutherland this spring — and his life totally changed. The impatient, alwaysmoving little boy sat quietly with his grandpa as the motor slowly hummed, and Robert became a patient, interested fisherman, right before his grandpa’s eyes. He waved to others fishing while holding his Spider-Man fishing pole firmly in his hand and asked his grandpa all about the lake and the fish he was catching that day. Robert chose to let them all go “back to their mommies so he could see them another day.”
He could hardly wait for spring to come next year so he and Grandpa can spend time on the lake together again as fishermen. Well, that was then and this is now. State Fish and Wildlife wants to close the lake to all fishing for five years. The meeting we attended confirmed what we feared: There is no science supporting the closure, and the deal has already been sealed. When pressed for answers concerning anything on the lake, Fish and Wildlife had none. In fact, they had not even visited the lake to see the ecosystem that works so well and had no idea of the numbers of kokanee living there.
The idea of “catch and release” was not even on the table for discussion. We saw biologists who work in offices, not in the field. It is a sad day for Lake Sutherland, the fishermen who love it, the kokanee that have become nothing but political footballs and for our grandson, Robert, who won’t get his first “big boy” tackle box for Christmas this year because he and Grandpa can’t fish together anymore.

Two tax measures Two levies, tax hikes, on the February [Jefferson County] ballot. Is there ever going to be an end to
Our readers’ letters, faxes the tax-and-spend agenda of our local politicos? The 0.3 percent sales tax increase for the transit system wasn’t on the November ballot because there was no chance to pass it with another 0.3 percent tax for law enforcement and Port Townsend already on the ballot. Instead, they opted to just bleed the public to death a little more slowly. Now a school levy comes before us to increase property tax allocations to the school district by 20 percent over the next four years. I recall County Commissioner John Austin crowing to an audience at a Port Ludlow Village Council meeting last year about how Jefferson County had

been granted $2.2 million in stimulus money for the schools. Where did the $2.2 million go? My understanding is the money was placed in the general fund and then transferred to the Jefferson County transportation and Roads department to pay for work on the roads. I guess the commissioners felt that it would be easier to pass a school levy than one for the road department. We all know if you tell the public “it’s for the kids,” they will pass anything. Can you say “bait and switch”? With the 0.3 percent sales tax increase, I have concluded that I will pur-
chase nothing in Jefferson County. I have to live within my means, and I see no reason why Jefferson County cannot do the same. Craig Henderson, Port Ludlow
Teacher praised I enjoyed reading about Judy McCutchen’s class introducing 9- and 10-yearold children about problem solving and working as teams [“Robots and Life Lessons,” PDN, Dec. 10]. Judy is the teacher we all wish we had had — and the teacher we pray our children will have. What a wonderful gift to the children at Blue Heron. Maria Miller, Port Townsend
Peninsula Daily News Rants & Raves Compiled By Lee Zurcher
Rave of the Week A HOLIDAY AND everyday rave for all those kind souls who help others less fortunate than themselves selflessly, generously, with kindness, to no public recognition or glory, simply out of kindheartedness. You truly make the world a better place.
. . . and other Raves SPECIAL THANKS TO Daphne for turning in my lost coin purse, with my needed funds, at the Eagles in Port Angeles. BIG RAVES TO the Nordland General Store [on Marrowstone Island] for providing the community with a big, beautifully lit outdoor Christmas tree. Our family cannot afford a tree this year, so we all go for a ride together in the evening and stop by the Christmas tree and sing some carols together and we pretend it’s our tree this year. A HUGE RAVE for Top Hat Chimney Sweep, Port Angeles. They came in and were so professional and gave such good advice and addressed all of our concerns! They are wonderful people to work with! THANKS TO THE Sheriff’s Chain Gang for their hard work in picking up trash on Elwha River Road last week. They even hauled away an old freezer someone had dumped. Much appreciation from those of us who live in this area! Would have submitted a rant to idiots who dump trash but assume those types too stupid to read.
for Ruth who provides friendliness and compassion along with prescriptions. You’re the best! HUGE THANK-YOU to the nurses and CNAs at Olympic Medical Center on 2 West and Telemetry. Their care and professionalism during my recent stay exceeded all expectations! We have a first-rate facility! RAVES FOR THE women who surprised me with the 10 free bus passes on the Clallam Transit commuter bus. I was feeling a bit down and have been down on my luck lately, and this really helped me feel better. A HUGE RAVE to Affordable Roofing (Port Angeles and Sequim). I’m a widow and was in great need to save my roof. They took care of me when I didn’t know where to turn. They took time to help me with another problem and sent me to right and honest people to help me, as well. Happy holidays. OVER 100 KIDS at the Port Angeles Boys & Girls Club Christmas Party. Kudos to Jet Set Soroptimists and the Peninsula College men’s and women’s basketball teams — you were terrific positive role models for the kids. A HEARTY THANK-you to Ernst from Ernst Photography (Port Angeles) for taking photographs of animals at the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society. In addition, he takes animal photos with Santa, all proceeds going to the shelter. Thank you, Ernst, for sharing your time and talent to support the homeless animals of our community.

Hurd and Miller, CPAs. A GREAT, BIG beautiful holiday rave for the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe’s fantastic color display on the campus and now this year at their medical clinic. Your lights are a treat! Thank you so very much for your generosity to our community.
Rant of the Week drugs to teenagers. I’m all for this, plus not selling alcohol to minors. I’m a great-grandma of two girls. What can be done? A HOLIDAY RAVE for the talented artists and craftspeople who have made their wonderful gifts available for sale at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center. Not only have they made it possible for the community to purchase beautiful and original presents to give their friends and family, but the proceeds also benefit our much-loved Fine Arts Center.
LADIES, IF YOU would like to see better results from your men, why not try some regular praise and encouragement instead of constant criticism? And, to the the truly wonderful (though rare) gals out there who unselfishly understand and bestow this on the lucky men in their lives, hallelujah! And, God bless you, each and every one.
. . . and other Rants
A HUGE RAVE for Kyle who works for Mary’s Disposable Co. He comes down our road — I don’t care if it’s rain, wind, sleet, snow, whatever — and always has a smile on his face. Thank you, Kyle, I’ll always appreciate you. I live in Sequim, and I know it’s really hard. Happy holidays.
TO ANNOUNCE STOLEN items in this column might help deter future thefts as items can’t be easily used or sold if recognized as stolen. We had stolen from us at a consignment store (Sequim) a long green relish tray with a standing bunny at each end. Has anyone seen it?
PORT ANGELES KIDS do great things! Thank you, Hunter, for helping a teacher recover her car’s hubcap after hitting the curb on the way into the parking lot. You showed kindness and holiday spirit with your gracious deed. What a gentleman!
RANT TO THE gentleman who yelled at us for trying to take a bucket full of ground asphalt for our slippery drive. We apologize for not knowing that it was yours. We had Christmas hats on, and a Christmas tree in the trunk. Did we look like thieves? Next time, just calmly ask people to pay you.
RAVES TO Pen Print Inc. [Port Angeles] for printing the 2011 Blood Drive calendar. TO SEE THE smiles of over 100 children at the Mount Angeles Boys & Girls Club Christmas Party was awesome. The Peninsula College men’s and women’s basketball teams, the staff and board members of Mount Angeles Boys & Girls Club and Santa assisted Soroptimists of Port Angeles-Jet Set with their annual Christmas party. Pizza was donated by Gordy’s, Domino’s, All about Pizza, and Van Goes Take & Bake. Drakes donated a 6-foot sub sandwich. Gifts were from Walmart, Port Angeles Food Bank, Toys for Tots, Irwin Dental Center, Clallam County Literacy Council and Soroptimist-Jet Set. Also Charlie Ferris, Renee Bible, Bill Pearl, Svetlio Hurd and Garnero Smith
RANT: WHAT HAS happened to the doctors in Sequim? You can’t get an appointment for weeks, and they have such a turnover you don’t see the same people twice. Why should we have to cross the water to get medical care? A LOCAL “BLIZZARD” on the front page of the PDN consists of 3 inches of snow with 10 mph winds. But a third page “snowstorm” in the Midwest involves 22 inches of snow with 50 mph winds. EDITOR’S NOTE: Some parts of the lowland North Olympic Peninsula, all served by the PDN, had as much as 14 inches fall Dec. 6, as reported. We’re glad the author of the rant only had 3 inches where he or she was.
A RANT TO the “grandma” or several grandmas who posted a rant last week to drug dealers. You really think they’re going to spend their newly earned money on a newspaper? Ha! Maybe they’re selling because they can’t find a job anywhere else. Thanks to you old ladies who won’t hurry up and retire. RANTS TO VANDALS who have spraypainted graffiti on the Safeway store and Goodwill store in downtown Sequim and the old farm building near U.S. Highway 101 and Sindars and Lofgren roads in east Sequim. Also rants to Sequim for not having an anti-graffiti program to clean up graffiti as soon as it’s reported. A HUGE RANT for invited guests who do not reply to an RSVP invitation. Do you not know what RSVP means, or are you just too lazy to reply? See if you get invited to anymore of my parties, you creeps. FLIP OR FLOP? Hey, city of Port Angeles. where’s the Sports [tennis court] Bubble? Or is it like the Metrodome, another flop? WHY DO RESTAURANT waiters or waitresses ask you if you want your change back? This seems very rude. They should just bring it back. Other stores don’t ask this question. A RANT FROM one of Santa’s elves at the Sequim Community Aid Toys Giveaway to the person who took the toys being held for “Rachel.” Although she was able to choose other items, you took something that didn’t belong to you and that you had no right to. You know who you are. So does Santa.

Flames engulf a Sixth Street home in Clallam Bay on Saturday evening.
Fire destroys mobile home in Clallam Bay By Donna Barr
For Peninsula Daily News
CLALLAM BAY — Fire gutted a mobile home on Sixth Street on Saturday evening in flames that a neighbor said soared about 60 feet high. Kathy Hubbard, who was in the house when the fire began a little after 5 p.m., was apparently not injured, said Patrice Porter, emergency medical technician, but was sent to Forks Community Hospital to be checked. Fire Chief Trish Hudson
could not be reached Saturday night for more information about the fire, including the possible cause and a damage estimate. By the time the fire department arrived, flames were pouring from the house, said Aaron Burdette, a neighbor. Two Douglas fir trees near the back of the house were on fire, he said. “It was engulfed,” said Burdette, referring to the taller tree, which he estimated was 50 feet tall. “The flames were shoot-

ing up about 10 feet above that.” The fire department quickly doused the tree fires, he said. The house was behind the Clallam Bay Library, which is at 6990 state Highway 112. Separating it from the public structure was a thicket of bushes and vines that had been soaked by a daylong rain. ________
PORT ANGELES — If you’ve ever been annoyed by the wait to cross U.S. Highway 101 at Deer Park Road, Clallam County is working on a project to ease your pain. By the end of 2012, the county will open an underpass near Deep Park Cinemas that will provide a safe and hassle-free crossing for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. Federal, state and local funding for the $6 million to $8 million project has already been secured. “We’re just about ready to move into the right-ofway acquisition phase,” said Rich James, Clallam County transportation program manager. County officials said the underpass is needed because the crossings at Deer Park Road and Buchanan Drive are dangerous. Both will become rightturn-only roads onto the highway. “There is a huge pattern of accidents at Deer Park Road,” James said. “It’s almost equally as bad at Buchanan.” Drivers heading to Port Angeles from the theater or Wilder Auto will follow a
new county road that goes under the existing highway near C’est Si Bon restaurant. After looping past the scenic overlook, motorists will merge with westbound traffic on a new acceleration lane at Buchanan Drive. The county is awaiting final approval from the state Department of Transportation before it can contract the preliminary engineering. James said that approval may come by year’s end. “During the same time frame, between now and July, we’ll be designing it,” James said. The county first considered building an overpass at the site, which is just east of the Morse Creek S-curve near Port Angles, but opted for the underpass in the summer of 2009. A right-of-way conflict changed an earlier alignment that would have put the crossing farther to the east. The conflict slowed progress on the project somewhat, but the beginning of construction remains scheduled for late 2011. “I’m not giving up on 2011 yet,” James said of the groundbreaking.
Much of the work can be accomplished outside of the construction season, James added. The state highway will be shifted to either side as the underpass is being built. Crews will take advantage of the already-paved scenic overlook on the north side of Highway 101. “We’re going to likely be routing traffic,” James said. “We’d like to build half to two-thirds of the structure while traffic is out of the way.” The 50-foot-wide road bed will include a 10-footwide sidewalk that connects to the Olympic Discovery Trail. In August 2009, Transportation agreed to transfer nearly $3.8 million in federal and state funds to complete the project. The largest chunks are $2.8 million allocated from a federal transportation program and $2 million from Clallam County real estate excise taxes. Included in the project are improvements to the scenic overlook.

And it was the most extensive work for Locker and his fellow starters since the Apple Cup victory at Washington State on Dec. 4. “I feel normal,” Locker said. “Yeah, like I always had before.” That would be before his rib was broken Oct. 30 against Stanford. Doctors have estimated broken ribs generally take at least six weeks to heal. And though Also . . . Locker started three ■ EWU of the four games for advances to the Huskies (6-6) title game since the fracture, after topping the injury now hapNova/B4 pened six week ago. And he still has two more weeks before the Huskies’ rematch with Nebraska (10-3). “He looks as quick and as explosive as I have seen him look in quite some time,” Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said. “His suddenness in the pocket and out of the pocket, his ability to play on the move, is as good as we’ve seen in months.” Locker’s apparent return to full health wasn’t the only pre-Holiday Bowl cheer for the Huskies on Thursday.
Healing Dawgs Starting defensive end Talia Crichton was back practicing two months to the day since he last played, before arthroscopic knee surgery. Left tackle Senio Kelemete was also back, seemingly fully recovered from the sprained ankle he got at Cal on Nov. 27. That freak injury came when center Drew Schaefer tripped over Kelemete’s ankle and sprained it in while rushing to join the celebration of Chris Polk’s winning touchdown run on the final play. Kelemete played in the Apple Cup the following week despite hardly practicing, then helped open the holes through which Polk ran for 284 yards — the second-best rushing day in UW history and best in 60 years. So having him ready for the rematch of September’s blowout loss to the Cornhuskers is a good thing for the Huskies. “I thought we looked fresh, looked like we had fresh legs running around. And that was the most important thing,” Sarkisian said. The helmets-and-shorts practice resembled a normal Monday during the regular season. Sarkisian planned to begin the “meat and potatoes” of game-plan preparation for Nebraska on Friday. The Huskies also practiced Saturday and will meet again Sunday and Monday before taking Tuesday and Wednesday off. They fly to San Diego on Dec. 23. Turn

PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles boys basketball team had it all going Friday night. Putting up perhaps the most complete performance of the Wes Armstrong era thus far, the Roughriders dropped visiting Klahowya 84-49 for their fifth straight victory.
Port Angeles dished out 21 assists on the night and shot 26 of 33 from the free throw line on the way to their highest point total in more than five years. Twelve of 13 Riders in uniform scored — led by Colin Wheeler’s game-high 18 — as they topped 80 points for the first time since January 2007.

Preps: PA wins Continued from B1 With the win, the Riders (5-1 in Olympic League, 6-1 overall) are off to their best start since the 2006-07 team started its year 7-0. That team, coached by since-departed Erik Lathen, is also the last Rider boys squad to visit state in the past 13 years. “These guys aren’t going to go down without a fight, and that’s a great thing to have to be successful,” Armstrong said. “The guys are really starting to trust in each other, and there’s not a sense of panic [when another team makes a run]. “That was something we were concerned with coming in, was how to close out and how to finish games. “This year we’re doing a good job of starting the runs on our own.” It was the Riders’ second unit that sparked a gamechanging second quarter surge Friday night. Led by Tanner Phair, and Keenen Walker, the Riders hounded Klahowya into numerous turnovers with their full-court press. That resulted in a 28-7 Port Angeles frame that all but put the game away as the Riders went into halftime up 41-19. “Both [Keenen] and Tanner did a great job of pressuring the wings,” Armstrong said. “We were causing traps in the corners and other guys were able to jump the passes in the passing lanes.” Starter Ian Ward did a little bit of everything for the Riders with nine points, eight rebounds, five blocks and three steals. Walker finished the game with six assists and four steals, while Phair dropped in 11 points. Fellow sub Casey Smith also added 16 points off the bench. “We’re playing very unselfishly,” Armstrong said. Port Angeles visits North Kitsap for its next Olympic League game Tuesday. That will be followed by a nonleague contest at Class 2A Tyee of the Seamount League on Wednesday.
Jason Brocklesby scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to help the Wolves keep pace with Port Angeles (5-1) and Kingston (5-0) atop the league standings. Gabe Carter came close to a double-double as well, scoring 16 and snagging nine rebounds. Sequim 57, North Kitsap 45 North Kitsap Sequim

GRESHAM, Ore. — The Peninsula College men’s basketball team will play for fourth place at the Mount Hood Crossover tournament after splitting its first two games this weekend. The Pirates started out the tourney with a narrow 62-61 loss to Columbia Basin on Friday before rebounding with a 58-56 win over Centralia on Saturday afternoon. “We played as a team, which limited out turnovers,” Peninsula coach Lance Von Vogt said of the second game, “and we made some plays down the stretch to win the game.” Peninsula got 16 points off the bench in Friday’s game against Columbia Basin but only shot 39 percent from the field. DeShaun Freeman led the Pirates with 14 points, but Mitchel Jones and Jordan Poynor had 15 a piece to lift the Hawks. On Saturday, Mitrell Clark led the Pirates with 16 points, while Anthony Williams added 15 and Thad Vinson 14.

Peninsula was dropped 71-53 by host Portland on Friday before topping Centralia 42-30 Saturday to advance to today’s fourthplace game. “We could not have played more as a team,” Peninsula head coach Alison Crumb said of Satur-
day’s win. “This was the highest intensity we have played with all season.” On Friday, Portland took control by grabbing the lead and extending it throughout the game. Danika Goodwin stepped up as the leading scorer for Peninsula with 16 points. She also grabbed eight rebounds and dished out five assists, while Callie Monfrey had a seasonhigh 18 rebounds. Still, that wasn’t enough against Portland. “We could not stop their transition offense with our excessive turnovers,” Crumb said. It wasn’t until the second half of Saturday’s game that the Pirates (2-6 overall) pulled away from Centralia with a 20-11 run. Neomi Carter led the Pirates with a game-high nine points in the win.

Just how bad is Hasselbeck? Hawks QB has to channel old Pro Bowl form THE SEATTLE SEACHICKENS are at it again. Losing. At least this time Brad they were on the road LaBrie when they let the San Francisco 49ers embarrass them. And they were embarrassed big time. The ending score of 40-21 doesn’t tell the whole story because it was 40-7 late in the third quarter. Two meaningless touchdowns at the end of the game made it look more competitive than it was. And the final score at 1:55 was a gimmee. The frustrating thing about this game is that the stats don’t look that bad. The Seachickens had 20 first downs to the Niners’ 10 and 361 total yards to San Francisco’s 336. Two things stand out about the game. One is that Alex Smith, who seems ready at times for the scrapheap of quarterbacks, looked like a Pro Bowler against Seattle with three touchdowns, zero interceptions and a quarterback rating of 130.9. The second thing is that Matt Hasselbeck, the true Pro Bowl quarterback, played like a chump. Hasselbeck had five turnovers while the entire 49ers team had none. He threw four interceptions and lost one of two fumbles. My sister-in-law, a Sequim resident, hates Hasselbeck. She thinks he is the reason the Seachickens have struggled the past few years. Of course, after last week’s game, she took the “I told you so” tone. But every quarterback has bad games. Even Tom Brady. Of course, Brady has a bad game once in every 50 games or so and Hasselbeck, at least this year, has one every other contest. To give the devil his due, Hasselbeck also does not have Brady’s supporting cast and he is not playing under head coach Bill Belichick’s rock-solid winning system. I would rather have Hasselbeck leading the Seachickens than a lot of other quarterbacks. The only other signal caller in the NFC West I would like to see in a Seattle uniform is Sam Bradford, and that’s not for what he has done so far but for his potential. Alex Smith or Troy Smith? No way. And Derek Anderson? Anyway, this was a bad time for Hasselbeck to implode. The Seachickens needed to beat the Niners because now they have Atlanta, tied for the best record in the NFL at 11-2, coming to town today and Tampa Bay lurking nearby. No one in his right mind is expecting Seattle to win. This would be a good time for Hasselbeck to show my sister-in-law and the rest of us that he can still play at a Pro Bowl level. Oh, whom am I kidding?

4. Pittsburgh Steelers (10-3) — They scored 10 points in the fourth quarter to turn a close game into a blowout over the Bengals last week. 5. Baltimore Ravens (9-4) — They let the Texans come back on them but they did win it in overtime last week to stay within striking distance of the Steelers. 6. Philadelphia Eagles (9-4) — They edged out the Bears (9-4) and the Jets (9-4), who both lost last week.
Bottom Six 27. Dallas Cowboys (4-9) — Arizona also is 4-9 but it pounded Denver 43-13 to stay out of the bottom six for one week. 28. Detroit Lions (3-10) — They’re moving up after shocking the Packers 7-3. Now they just need to win a road game to show they’re a real team. 29. Buffalo Bills (3-10) — They surprised the Browns 13-6 last Sunday. And here I thought they had already peaked for the year. 30. Denver Broncos (3-10) — I still can’t believe the Seachickens lost to this team. Seattle played them at the wrong time of year. 31. Cincinnati Bengals (2-11) — Here’s another team like Denver that has no excuse to be this far down in the rankings. 32. Carolina Panthers (1-12) — Wrapping your mind around how bad the Panthers are is like trying to wrap your mind around quantum mechanics.

SEATTLE — For the Washington Huskies, it was time to go big. Starting their two biggest inside players for the first time, 7-foot Aziz N’Diaye and 6-9 Matthew Bryan-Amaning, the Huskies dominated the inside on the way to a 80-52 victory over San Francisco Saturday night. Isaiah Thomas, the team’s leading scorer held to just two points in the first half, scored the first 10 points of the second half to give the Huskies a 49-24 lead at the 16:58 mark. “I felt like I needed to be a little bit more aggressive and just had to transition,” Thomas said. “I took what the defense gave me and I got a couple shots. I feel like I can do that a lot, especially if we’re not scoring well.” Scott Suggs, who jumpstarted the Husky offense in the same way with successive first-half 3-pointers, led the Huskies (7-3) with a career-high 15 points.
The Associated Press
Washington’s Terrence Ross, right, drives against San Francisco’s Cole Dickerson in the second half Saturday’s game Saturday in Seattle. Thomas had 12 points in a balanced attack as all 12 players on the roster reached the scoring column. Michael Williams, averaging 15.9 points per game for the Dons (4-6), finished with 19 points.
Perris Blackwell added 17 points. But where the Huskies made the biggest difference was with their inside game. All week UW coach Lorenzo Romar said that rebounding was his biggest concern.
Bryan-Amaning started the first six games but has come off the bench the past four. N’Diaye, a transfer still learning the Husky system, started the previous four games. Together, Bryan-Amaning and N’Diaye pulled down 14 rebounds. They also combined for 19 points, making 9 of 15 attempts, and N’Diaye also blocked four shots. “That’s what I’m pretty much concentrating on,” said Bryan-Amaning, a senior forward. “Points will come with the personnel we have and system we’re in. “Right now, I’m just trying to rebound, creating more opportunities for my team to score.”
Zags: Gonzaga gets upset win Continued from B1 The big shot by Olynyk came right after Baylor (7-1), with its highest ranking ever, scored four points on one possession. Gonzaga (6-5) made 7 of 9 free throws after that to seal the long-awaited victory. Four of the Bulldogs’ losses this season came against Top 25 teams: San Diego State, Kansas State, Illinois and Notre Dame. “Through this murder’s row we’ve been through, it’s been hard to get any momentum,” coach Mark Few said. “Teams have made a lot shots against us.”
Baylor, playing away from home for the first time this season, was among the national leaders in rebounding margin (plus 12.5 a game) and scoring margin (plus 21.7 per game). Gonzaga matched the Bears with 33 rebounds. With Gonzaga’s leading scorer Steven Gray out of the game because of back spasms after a hard fall in the first half, Olynyk made his only 3-pointer of the game. It was the last of 12 lead changes after halftime. “I don’t think we could find our way from the hotel to the bus without Steven Gray,” Few said.
But the Bulldogs did all right against Baylor. Olynyk came through after Baylor had taken a 59-58 lead with 2 minutes left. Perry Jones hit a jumper from near the free throw line. While the ball was in the air, a foul was called under the basket and Quincy Acy made two free throws. “That was a big-time play by Kelly,” Few said. “For us to survive all that, to survive a run like that, with the crowd into it and Kelly steps up and hits a big 3-pointer.” Jones then came up short on a jumper, and Baylor had two quick fouls.
Demetri Goodson made two free throws after being fouled by LaceDarius Dunn for a 63-59 lead. After Goodson lost the ball out of bounds on the sideline in a crowd of Bears and then fouled Dunn, Baylor’s senior made only one of the two free throws. Marquise Carter made two free throws with 47 seconds left to make it 65-60, then Goodson had a steal on a turnover by Dunn. “I think they wanted it more, they came out with more intensity than us at the first of the game. We can’t wait ’til the last minute to get going,” Dunn said.

“Former team or not, this is one of the best teams in the NFL right now,” Milloy said. “Given the situation we’re in it’s like a playoff game. A lot of implications for both teams. In the position that they’re in, they
have a chance to really solidify homefield advantage for the playoffs,” he added. “We’re trying to figure it out to get in. We’re in the same conference, potentially this is a tone setter game for later on too.”
Dawgs: Sark follows USC model Continued from B1 They will follow the same practice and gameplanning pattern there, starting Christmas Eve in the first of five workouts at the University of San Diego.

Why not? Those Trojans went 5-2 in bowls in that span, including four Rose Bowl titles and one national championship. “This format has been successful,” Sarkisian said.
“It’s a USC blueprint for sure.” That extensive and highprofile postseason experience is why Sarkisian looked amused when someone asked if the second-year Huskies coach will be nervous in his first bowl game as a head man. “No, I’ll be fine,” he deadpanned. He thinks his underdog Huskies, winners of three straight, must-win games, will be, too. “We’ve been on national television before,” Sarkisian said. “We’ve played against good football teams before. We played against this good football team on national television. So I don’t anticipate jitters at all on our end. “I anticipate us coming in really prepared, really
focused and playing a football game at a really high level against a good opponent.”

Audrey Munoz-Aultman and her son, Anthony, 10, got help from the Peninsula Home Fund after they arrived penniless, homeless and unemployed from an unsafe life in Pierce County.
Fund helps mom ‘pull life together’ EDITOR’S NOTE — For 21 years, Peninsula Daily News readers in Jefferson and Clallam counties have supported the Peninsula Home Fund. Today, we feature another in a series of articles that provide a window into how the fund operates and who benefits from our readers’ generosity. The next article will appear Wednesday. By Karen Griffiths
For Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Heroes come in many sizes, shapes and forms. Audrey Munoz-Aultman knows that firsthand. One of her heroes is her son, Anthony, now 10. About a year ago, she lost control of her car. It went off the road, flipped upside-down and trapped her inside. Anthony untangled himself and ran two blocks in his pajamas and bare feet before he was able to flag down a car for help. “I was airlifted to the hospital,” says Audrey, 31. “He saved my life.” Says Anthony: “I got my own fireman hat that has my name carved into it, and I got to ride in a fire truck to school.” Audrey also sees her neighbors on the North Olympic Peninsula as heroes. They helped her through OlyCAP and the Peninsula Daily News’ “hand up, not a handout” Peninsula Home Fund. She was penniless, homeless and without a job when she arrived in Port Angeles from an unsafe life in Pierce County.
Give voice to your heart A GIFT OF any size is welcome. The Peninsula Home Fund has never been a campaign of heavy hitters. If you can contribute only a few dollars, please don’t hesitate because you think it won’t make a difference. Every gift makes a difference, regardless of its size. To donate, write a check to “Peninsula Home Fund” and attach it to the coupon that accompanies this story. Mail both items to Peninsula Home Fund, Peninsula Daily News, P.O. Box 1330, Port Angeles, WA 98362. Or drop them at the newspaper’s offices in Port Townsend, Sequim or Port
OlyCAP is nonprofit Olympic Community Action Programs, the No. 1 emergency care agency in Jefferson and Clallam counties. It also screens the applicants for the Home Fund and distributes the funds. At OlyCAP, she met with caseworker Jackie Jones. “Oh my goodness, that woman is just incredibly wonderful, warm and supportive,” says Audrey. She moved into an emergency shelter through OlyCAP’s Housing Resource Center. Jackie recommended Audrey look for work through Catholic Community Services Jobs.

Angeles (addresses on page A2 of the PDN daily). Again, all contributions are fully IRS tax-deductible. The fund’s IRS number, under the auspices of OlyCAP, is 91-0814319. You can also donate online by credit card — just visit www.peninsuladailynews.com, then click near the top of the home page on “Peninsula Home Fund.” Whether you donate by coupon or online, you will receive a written thank-you and acknowledgment of your contribution. To delay may mean to forget. for us. “Without that, it would be really hard to make ends meet.” Sitting in the cozy two-bedroom home she shares with Travis and Anthony, Audrey says that for the first time in her life, she feels stable, secure — and that she belongs. “The people here are so neat,” she says. With an air of disbelief and awe, she adds: “When I arrived, nobody knew me, yet they took me in, cared for me and made me feel my life mattered. “I mattered.”
No deductions The PDN’s Peninsula Home Fund provides a unique lifeline on the North Olympic Peninsula. All the money collected for the Home Fund goes — without any deductions — for hot meals for seniors; warm winter coats for kids; home repairs for the low-income; needed eyeglasses and prescription drugs; dental work; safe, drug-free temporary housing . . . The list goes on and on. Through Dec. 31, the PDN’s Peninsula Home Fund — a safety net for residents in Jefferson and Clallam counties when there is nowhere else to turn — is seeking contributions for its annual holiday season fund-raising campaign. From Port Townsend to Forks, from Quilcene and Brinnon to LaPush, it’s a “hand up, not a handout” for children, teens, families and the elderly. ■ No money is deducted for administration or other overhead. Your entire donation — 100
percent, every penny — goes to help those who are facing times of crisis. ■ All contributions are fully IRS tax-deductible. ■ Your personal information is kept confidential. Peninsula Daily News does not rent, sell, give or otherwise share your address or other information with anyone, or make any other use of the information. ■ Instances of help are designed to get an individual or family through the crisis — and every effort is made to put them back on the path to self-sufficiency. That’s the “hand up, not a handout” focus of the fund. In many instances, Peninsula Home Fund case managers at OlyCAP work with individuals or families to develop a plan to become financially stable — and avoid a recurrence of the emergency that prompted aid from the fund. ■ Begun in 1989, the fund is
supported entirely by Jefferson and Clallam residents. Individuals, couples, businesses, churches, service organizations and school groups set a record for contributions in 2009 — $230,806.95. With heavy demand this year, the carefully rationed fund is being rapidly depleted. So far, $199,000 has been spent. The last $30,000 of the money collected in 2009 is expected to be exhausted before Dec. 31. ■ Peninsula Home Fund contributions are often used in conjunction with money from other agencies, enabling OlyCAP to stretch the value of the contribution. ■ As was done with Audrey, money is usually distributed in small amounts, usually up to $150. ■ Assistance is limited to one time in a 12-month period.

Lions collect record amount at Salvation Army kettle in PA Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — It’s the club’s annual Christmas present to the Salvation Army and the people it serves. Nineteen members of the Port Angeles Lions Club, one guest and Lucy Dog — who is owned by Lion Irma Stennes — collected $835.58 for the Salvation Army while manning a kettle at the Safe-
way on Lincoln Street on Dec. 11. “This is a record,” said Bob Philpott, a board member. “This town is very generous.” The volunteers served for a total of 43 hours. The day of community service has been an annual undertaking for the club for 25 years, said Larry Kelly,
club member. On Thursday, the Lions also gave the Salvation Army their Angel Tree gifts, which included a couple of bikes, Philpott said. The Salvation Army will provide Christmas gifts to 1,649 boys and girls next week, Philpott said. The group is also providing 525 families with meals, he said.

Find dogs good home for your afterlife DEAR ABBY: Since being diagnosed with two types of cancer, I have been unable to work. I have two wonderful dogs, and all my time is invested in them. I show them in obedience and agility exhibitions and love them dearly. While talking with my husband of 25 years, I casually asked him about the dogs’ care if I should pass away. His answer was shocking. He said he is prepared to give the dogs away — to a good home, of course — because he doesn’t have the time and doesn’t want to be bothered with them. What does this say about how he truly feels about me? Doggie Blues in Pennsylvania
dear abby Abigail
Van Buren Doggie
Blues: What it says is your husband does not regard your dogs as extensions of you. It also says he is completely honest. Now that you know how he feels about your dogs, if you’re smart, you will contact some of your friends on the dog show circuit and ensure that your dogs will be placed in homes where they are loved and appreciated — preferably together — should they outlive you. It will give you peace of mind, and your husband
will have two less things to be “bothered” about in the event that you predecease him. Dear Abby: My sister, who is six years younger, married for the first time at 42. Until she met her husband, who is overweight, she was never heavy. She always tried to watch her weight and exercised to a moderate degree. Once she met him, they found fine dining to be a favorite pleasure. She also has discovered that she loves to cook and watch the food channels on TV. When we visit, talk or write, food dominates the topics. My sister has gained 70 or 80 pounds in six years. She doesn’t exercise and
won’t buy a scale. My husband and I mention exercise or calories every time they discuss food. She does not appreciate “Big Sis” giving her advice, but I’m concerned about her. She doesn’t read or watch the news, so I feel if I’m not telling her the risks, I’m just standing by watching her kill herself. What can I do? Battling a Weighty Issue Dear Battling: First, stop lecturing your sister about her weight problem. Until she wants to address it, you will only alienate her. When she and her husband experience the health problems that may occur because of their obesity
and sedentary lifestyle, be supportive and offer suggestions only if they are requested. The most unwelcome advice in the world is that which is unasked for. She will deal with her weight only when she’s ready, and nothing you can do, however well-intentioned, will change that. Dear Abby: I own a consignment shop and have an idea I would like to pass along to readers who need to do something with their wedding gowns, formals or other clothing. While donating to charity is a great idea, any community or school theater group would also greatly benefit from these donations. It might open up an entirely new world if the
person then attended the performance to see his or her clothing put to such good use. What do you think? Jim in Illinois Dear Jim: What a great idea. The more people who involve themselves with cultural activities in their communities, the better for all concerned. You’re right — it could open up new worlds (and opportunities) for those who choose to become involved.

Choosing the 12 birds of Christmas WE’RE FAMILIAR WITH the “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” but what about the 12 birds of Christmas? Birds enter into the seasonal activities in several ways. Yes, we eat turkeys. We also receive cards decorated with birds. They’re displayed on our trees as ornaments. One bird, the white dove, is a seasonal symbol throughout the world. And of course, we feed and enjoy birds throughout the holidays and all winter. When mulling over the ways birds are part of the season, I attempted to choose 12 favorites, those most associated with the holidays. Christmas cards came to mind first. Chickadees are very popular, but it is the black-capped chickadee that decorates colorful greetings. This brings up a point about the birds displayed on our cards. The eastern portion of the country still influences Christmas card illustrations. Chestnut-backed chickadees are primarily seen in the Northwest. That’s OK. We have plenty of black-
caps, too. Cardinals are another story. This winter is predicted to be a cold one, with plenty of snow. If that is our fate, let’s hope it brings a wave of snowy owls to the Northwest. These beautiful birds are used on greeting cards, but they are also on the minds of birders hoping to see one. I’m not aware of any sightings yet, but this is the season for wishing, and snow bunting reports have started — even in Florida! While the snowy owl is probably the most northern bird associated with the season, there is also one from the cold southern regions that often shows up on cards and as tree ornaments. I just opened a card that has a lively bunch of penguins dancing across it. They were colorfully attired in stocking caps and scarves, but the ice skates did “gild the lily” just a bit. “Seven swans a swimming” assured these handsome birds a place in Christmas decorations and traditions a long time ago. Their white regal grace
adds beauty to anything they decorate. Swans have a worldwide attraction. Mute swans belong to the Old World because that is the one commonly seen there. In North America, we enjoy two beautiful swan species, the tundra and the trumpeter. Geese and ducks are also popular on cards, especially those illustrated with wintery outdoor scenes. Many of us, especially those who have roots in the Midwest, have fond memories of winter days spent hunting for not only a Christmas tree, but for the Christmas dinner. Finches are always popular as Christmas card art. That’s because they are familiar birds we see at our feeders, and their numbers are the largest at this time of the year. House finches and purple finches are also popular because the males wear the holiday color of red. Goldfinches are also in the running because over much of the country, they also flock to feeders. Other birds, like the golden-crowned kinglet, red-breasted or whitebreasted nuthatch and eve-

Create botanic wonderland in 5 tips WELL, FORTUNATELY (OR unfortunately), we are all running out of time while the gardening Santa has completed his list, checked it twice and by now should know who has been horticulturally naughty and who has been gardening nice. Our gardening tools have been put away in the shed with care in the hopes that Saint Sunshine will soon return and be fair. And with visions of sugar plums (Asian pears, delicious apples and sweet cherries) dancing in our heads, it is time to dream of next year and how the gardening beast can be fed. To stay permanently on the “super-nice list,” or, as I like to call it, “the Peninsula Fabulous Five,” let us contemplate how we can make our place a true botanical wonderland and thus ensure we never get a lump of coal from our Master Gardener friends.
A growing concern 1. Light up the Dark canMay vas. For weeks now, I’ve been trying to tell how only the Grinch and his Grinchettes do not hang at least one strand of lights around their home or business. Really, it is a fabulous forum for fantastic frolic and awesome art. It also bridges a very bleak, bland and dark time of year in your yard, so start today! 2. Spectacular spring showcase. Right after the lights come spring bulbs, and no place on the
planet is better-suited to growing and admiring spring bulbs than our very own Olympic Peninsula. And believe it or not, this month, even early January, is an excellent time to still plant these bulbs. In fact, they will probably be more reliable to bloom on schedule (not early) than those planted in September or October. Spring bulbs are still in stores, hidden in corners at dramatic close-out specials. Phone the bulb catalog companies, and they will have items at 50 percent off for immediate shipping. But now or by next year, you need to have a plethora of springflowering bulb varieties to be on the good list. 3. It’s all in the container. Hanging baskets, flower boxes, ornamental pots and flowering containers are elves’ and everyone’s favorite horticultural
eye candy. Again, no place is more forgiving and conducive to growing Olympic gold medal-winning containers than here in your own back-, front or side yard. If you only pick one of the five, pick this one as your resolution to maximize this coming year! 4. The divine and delightful dahlia. Best plant ever. Mrs. Claus had Santa build a huge Victorian conservatory up at the North Pole just so she could have dahlias. They alone create a bedazzling yard like no other plant. And as August gives way to September and then October, dahlias become even more prolific as the rest of the summer garden fails. You can order tubers soon, if not tomorrow. 5. Autumn’s awesome fall foliage.
Every year, plant a different response-time fall foliage plant so that from September to December, your bushes, shrubs and trees explode in a cornucopia of colors. This is truly the most underrealized and -planned for season arbor-wise. Create the paintbrush-of-fall effect on your own property. P.S. Repeat entire list. This list of the “Peninsula Fabulous Five” will have your home decked out in full festive color from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31. Merry Christmas, everyone!

Briefly . . . Preschool fetes Las Posadas PORT ANGELES — Kindergarten, first- and second-grade students at Queen of Angels School recently celebrated “Christmas in Mexico” by observing Las Posadas. Traditionally, Las Posadas is a nine-day religious observance that re-enacts Mary and Joseph’s journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of shelter. Posadas translates to “lodging” in English. Queen of Angels students marked the event by knocking on the doors of classrooms dressed as Mary, Joseph, angels and shepherds. Each class turned the travelers away, representing the nine nights of Las Posadas, until the last room, where the travelers were welcomed with a party and a pinata. Children also made tissue-paper flowers, poinsettias and tortillas and learned about the legend of the poinsettia.

A temporary stop will be located at the far side of Hilltop Tavern in Port Townsend for those wanting to disembark the Tri-Area loop bus on Upper Sims Way. “The New Year’s holiday is a perfect time to provide our support back to the community,” Jefferson Transit Authority General Manager Peggy Hanson said in a news release. “This is our way of saying thank you to the residents for their year-round patronage of public transportation. “We are also offering this public service in the spirit of community support for services to the Port Townsend Police Department and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department,” Hanson said. “Hopefully, many will be persuaded to leave their cars at home and instead use public transit, lessening the likelihood off accidents.”
Woodworking PORT ANGELES — Scholarships are available for a woodworking foundation course offered by the Port Townsend School of Woodworking from Jan. 10 to April 1. The course is designed to provide an understanding of basic woodworking
techniques with hand and power tools and to provide broad exposure to a range of woodworking techniques. This enables graduates to develop their own voice and style as a woodworker or furniture maker. The course also provides students with pragmatic and safe techniques for effective work in a woodshop. The woodworking school is offering scholarships to young people of the Port Townsend/East Jefferson County area, with plans to expand the scholarship program in subsequent years. “We want to help young people develop skills that will last them for life,” said Tim Lawson, executive director of the Port Townsend School of Woodworking. “We’re looking to kindle that passion for wood and working with their hands into a lifelong love affair.” A course description and online application can be found at www.ptwood school.com. For more information about the scholarship application or course details, phone Lawson at 360-440-7660 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — The Volunteers in Medicine of the Olympics clinic received a donation of $1,500 from St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, which raised the money at its recent Fiber Arts and Crafts Boutique. The boutique was the brainchild of Margaret Maxwell and included items made by St. Andrew’s members and friends. Local fiber artists also sold their art, with a portion of the proceeds going to the clinic. This donation also includes proceeds from the organ recital and coffee shop held during the fair. “We are very pleased to support the work of VIMO with this holiday effort,” said Maxwell. “It was very successful, and the community truly benefits from it.” In addition to this donation, VIMO recently received an anonymous $2,000 donation through the Schwab
Charitable Trust. “The community has been so generous to VIMO this fall,” said clinic Medical Manager John Melcher. “We also received $25,000 from our third annual Healthy Harvest dinner and the dance and auction sponsored by local service clubs,” he said. “These local gifts truly make the difference in our ability to serve the uninsured in our community.” The donations help support the work of the clinic: medical and behavioral health care for uninsured adults provided by volunteer doctors, nurse practitioners, physicians assistants, nurses and support staff. Volunteers in Medicine of the Olympics offers two medical clinics each week, behavioral health clinics, classes for patients with diabetes and a prescriptionassistance program.

A northern spotted owl sits on a tree in the Deschutes National Forest in Oregon. Studies show that prey may actually increase for owls in burned-over forests, and the rate of severe forest fires would have to increase five to eight times to pose a serious threat to the amount
of habitat, they wrote. Meanwhile, there is minimal research to show that thinning forests does not drive out spotted owls. They acknowledged that the latest draft was better
than the Bush plan but complained the draft plan was incomplete. It lacked a design for habitat reserves, making it impossible to determine if enough habitat would be
Paul Henson, who heads endangered species programs for Fish and Wildlife in Oregon, said the plan called for preserving oldgrowth forests in general and the specifics would be dealt with in the next phase, creation of a new habitat conservation plan. He added that a lot of scientific evidence showed that wildfire posed a significant threat, especially as global warming progresses. “The main theme here is we feel we are hitting this right down the scientific center,” Henson said. The Bush administration created a spotted owl recovery plan in 2008 that made room for a major increase in logging on federal lands in the Northwest. It blamed wildfires and incursions by the much more aggressive barred owl for the precipitous decline in spotted owls, despite major cutbacks in logging. Last year, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar withdrew that plan after deciding it could not stand up to legal challenges. An inspector general had found undue political interference.
Navy carrier base has been good for Everett By Noah Haglund The Daily Herald
EVERETT — People used to think of Navy towns as rowdy places full of bars and cheap thrills. Folks in Everett generally take a different view: charity, jobs and really cool displays on the Fourth of July. That perspective evolved during the 20-plus years that the community has hosted Naval Station Everett. “Since the Navy came to town, we’re far more attentive to our veterans, we’re far more attentive to our patriotic holidays,” said Pat McClain, an Everett city employee who’s worked on issues involving the base since it was first proposed in the early 1980s. “I think the Navy gave us a new dimension to our culture.” Before the base arrived, officials in Everett were trying to figure out how to cope with the projected loss of thousands of jobs in the timber industry, McClain said. That would have left the

Naval Station Everett is now Snohomish County’s largest public employer, and the second-largest employer overall, behind only Boeing. Its approximately 6,000 employees and their dependents contribute to the local economy not just as consumers; many of them gain administrative skills and technical know-how that make them hot commodi-
ties in the job market. “It’s hard to go to any office in town or any store without finding anybody whose father or brother or a spouse is part of the Navy here in Everett,” said John Mohr, executive director of the Port of Everett. Bob Drewel, former county executive and now the executive director of the Puget Sound Regional Council, said the base changed the region’s economic vitality. “There are highly trained folks in other capacities
there who have gone on to enter the workforce and stay in our community,” he said. The USS Abraham Lincoln has been home-ported here since 1997. News that the familiar aircraft carrier would depart Everett in late 2011 for a mid-life fueling of its nuclear reactors stoked fears that it would also carry away about half of the base personnel. The announcement last week that another carrier, the USS Nimitz, would
move to Everett from San Diego next year put those fears to rest. The Nimitz is scheduled for a year of maintenance in Bremerton before heading here. Navy officials in 1983 first proposed opening a new base somewhere in the Puget Sound region. The following year, Everett was the top pick over 13 other area ports. There was an initial groundbreaking in 1987. One thing that would be different about this base is
that personnel stationed there would be allowed to live throughout the region, rather than being restricted close to base. With the Lincoln’s arrival a decade after the groundbreaking, Snohomish County and other local governments braced for how the carrier’s crew would affect the community. Marine View Drive near the waterfront was widened from two to four lanes, as planners prepared for 3,000 new residents, 70 percent thought to have cars. Everett Transit added a route to the base. The Lakewood and Marysville school districts prepared for a wave of new students. Over time, the base would prove to have unanticipated impacts. Take charity, for instance. Sailors on the USS Lincoln in recent months have raised more than $90,000 in an ongoing campaign, said Deborah Squires, VP of impact and marketing for United Way of Snohomish County.
Italian court OKs evidence review in murder trial appeal By Alessandra Rizzo The Associated Press
PERUGIA, Italy — Amanda Knox won an important victory in her appeals trial of her murder conviction in Italy on Saturday, when a court ruled that it will allow an independent review of crucial DNA evidence. The lower court trial, which convicted the former University of Washington student last year and sentenced her to 26 years in an Italian prison, had rejected a similar defense request for an outside review of DNA found on the victim’s bra clasp and on a knife the prosecution alleged was used to stab Meredith Kercher. Knox, a 23-year-old from Seattle, was convicted of sexually assaulting and murdering Kercher. The co-defendant in the appeals trial is her ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, an
Italian who was convicted of the same charges and sentenced to 25 years. Prosecutors maintain that Sollecito’s DNA was found on the bra clasp and that Knox’s DNA was found on the knife. The defense maintains that DNA traces presented at the first trial were inconclusive and also contends they might have been contaminated when they were analyzed. Knox’s mother, Edda Mellas, burst into tears of joy in the courtroom in the university town of Perugia when the appeals court announced its decision. “Finally a little bit of good news,” Mellas said, as Knox’s family members hugged defense team lawyers. The court selected two experts from Rome’s Sapienza University to review the evidence. The experts will be for-
mally given the task at the trial’s next session Jan. 15. The request for the review was the first significant test for Knox’s defense. A rejection could have dealt a severe blow to their hopes of overturning the conviction. Prosecutor Giancarlo Costagliola had opposed the review request as “useless,” asserting that “this court has all the elements to be able to come to a decision.” A lawyer for the Kercher family, Francesco Maresca, also opposed the evidence review. Knox was hunched and pale as she was escorted into the courtroom earlier in the morning. She has been behind bars in Perugia since Nov. 6, 2007, four days after Kercher’s body was found in a pool of blood, her throat slit, in the apartment Knox and Kercher shared as exchange students in Perugia.
The Associtated Press
Convicted student Amanda Knox, center, is escorted by penitentiary guards as she arrives for a hearing in her appeals trial at a courthouse in Perugia, Italy, on Saturday. Saturday’s hearing was held two days after Italy’s highest criminal court upheld the conviction and 16-year-prison sentence of the third person charged with the murder, Rudy Her-
mann Guede of the Ivory Coast. Guede has admitted being at the house the night of the murder but denies killing Kercher. He was tried separately.
The high court’s ruling, which cannot be appealed, is significant because it states that Guede took part in the slaying but did not act alone, prosecutors and lawyers said.
Land trust purchases 217-acre private island in San Juans The Associated Press
SEATTLE — A land trust has purchased a 217acre private island in the San Juans for $6.4 million — less than half the asking price. Late high-tech pioneer John Fluke bought Vendovi
Island in 1966, and his family put it up for auction this fall. They had wanted $14.5 million for the island. The San Juan Preservation Trust came up with $3 million in donations and a $3.4 million low-interest
loan from San Juan residents. “We are excited that [Vendovi] may one day be available to the general population through the trust,” David Fluke, a spokesman for the sellers, said in a statement.
“It’s a unique, beautiful property in a magnificent setting with a lustrous and storied past.” The heavily forested, largely undeveloped island seven miles north of Anacortes has no ferry service. No public access will be
allowed while an inventory of the island’s resources is conducted and a management plan is developed, but the trust said a public park is a long-term possibility. The island has six beaches, a four-bedroom house and a harbor pro-
tected by a rock breakwater. “This gives us an unprecedented opportunity to protect a large, intact ecosystem,” the trust said. The trust said it is already raising money to pay off the loan.

Mrs. Hudson teaching job, but for a new adventure. Rita completed her college degree, earned a teaching certificate, and taught one year in Anchorage before moving back to Lynnwood, Washington, in 1967, where both spouses taught in the Edmonds School District until retirement. They built their dream home overlooking the bay and Rita’s childhood
home, and spent many happy years there together — gardening, tending to the family property and entertaining family and friends. The couple did some traveling around the West and Midwest, and Rita went farther afield to Hawaii, Mexico, France and on a wonderful cruise from Bangkok to Australia. Rita was a beautiful woman, inside and out —
generous, hospitable and unpretentious with everyone. She will be remembered for her intelligence, her open mind and her great sense of humor. She was artistic, a wonderful cook and gardener, and a caring teacher, all while being a supportive wife, mother, sister, grandma and friend. Rita will be sorely missed by her husband of 55 years, Golden; her children, Anne (Pierre), Steve (Colleen) and Julie (Jim); and her grandchildren, Angele, Austin, Lauren, Lindsay, Nik, Landon, Taylor and Jean-Luc; her sister, May, and countless friends. In lieu of sending flowers, plant some in your garden next spring and think of Rita. Also, please support Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County, 540 East Eighth Street, Port Angeles, WA 98362, hospiceofclallamcounty.org. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.

OLYMPIA — A chill is in the air at hiring offices around state government. But it’s a stretch to call it a freeze. Officially, there is a hir ing freeze on the books. But state agencies have won exemptions that have opened the door to 1,700 hires since the freeze began in March. Mostly back-office staff such as managers, secretar ies and accountants, the approved positions run the full spectrum of govern ment. There are janitors and lobbyists, graphic designers and managers of athletic facilities, an oil spill expert and a horse racing regula tor. Gov. Chris Gregoire’s budget office has to sign off on most of the requests.
Lawmakers dream up new programs that need to be staffed. Administrators reorga nize their agencies to cope Julie Murray with smaller budgets and Office of Financial Management create positions in the pro cess.

ers have budgeted. “That need, and that exception process, is going to continue to multiply the longer these freezes con tinue,” Murray warned last winter. By bipartisan majorities, lawmakers went ahead anyway with the freeze on hiring, contracts, equipment purchases and travel. To see if Murray’s pre diction has come true, you can look at the numbers: 970 requests approved through November, many for multiple jobs. It is well over twice the pace of the 2009 freeze, when about 180 requests were granted in four months.

Gregoire proposes more cuts The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — Just days after unveiling her two-year budget, Gov. Chris Gregoire on Friday introduced a sup plemental budget meant to plug a $1.1 billion hole through June. Gregoire’s supplemental budget proposal builds on the work started by state lawmakers during a one-day special session last week. The Legislature’s bipar tisan plan cut about $590 million from the deficit through a mix of actions, including reducing state spending and raiding offbudget accounts. “My supplemental bud get takes the next step to solving the shortfall we now face,” Gregoire said in a statement. “The cuts we have to take are just as painful as those in my budget for next biennium.” Many of Gregoire’s pro posed reductions in the sup plemental budget mirror those that she announced on Wednesday as part of her two-year budget that goes through mid 2013. That budget made a series of cuts to deal with a projected $4.6 billion deficit over the next two years.
Basic Health gone Both the supplemental budget and Gregoire’s twoyear plan eliminated the Basic Health Program, which provides subsidized medical insurance to 66,000 poorer Washington residents. Also eliminated were cash grants and medical care for the Disability Life line program, which aids mostly childless adults who are unemployable but not receiving federal aid. The supplemental bud get also would eliminate the Children’s Health Program, which provides medical cov erage for 27,000 children who could be in the country illegally. Turn

Alaska boat to winter at Platypus Alaskan Grandeur, a 78-foot yacht that hails from Glacier Bay, Alaska, is comfortably stowed for most of the coming winter season in the Commander Building at Platypus Marine’s complex in Port Angeles. The composite vessel was built by Townsend Bay Marine in Port Townsend on the shell of a limit seiner hull that was supplied by the owner, Jimmie Rosenbruch. Alaskan Grandeur is a stout craft built to commercial standards, yet all of her berthing spaces, the galley and salon have luxuriant qualities more in keeping with what would be found aboard a cruising yacht. And a cruising yacht she is not. Shortly after Alaska gained statehood in 1959, Rosenbruch, a civil engineer living and working in Nevada, took a vacation to Alaska to take in a little hunting and fishing. Smitten with the majesty of America’s last frontier, Jimmie and his wife packed up the household, bundled up the growing family and headed north. For a few years, Jimmie continued working as a civil engineer with the Bureau of Indian Affairs and pursuing his love of hunting and fishing. With his avocation morphing into a new career Jimmie bought an 18-foot Boston Whaler, built an enclosure on it — probably a stretch to call it a cabin — and by 1972 he was in the guide business. After working his way through an ever-increasing
On the waterfront number of larger boats, he Sellars launched Alaskan Grandeur in 2002. In addition to the owner’s suite and comfortable accommodations for the six-member crew, there are four guest staterooms with queen-size beds and private baths. The boat’s 21½-foot beam provides for a spacious salon and wellequipped galley. Onboard, there is a 22-foot Sport Fisher, four 16-foot Lund Skiffs and four 18-foot sea kayaks. During the summer months, guests engage their passion for sportfishing in the open seas for halibut, rockfish or salmon, plus fly fishing in the rivers and streams. Guests are also welcome to climb aboard one of the sea kayaks and explore the glacial tide waters of Glacier Bay, a phenomenon that occurs only in Alaska, Greenland and Antarctica. Throughout the spring and fall, guests come aboard to hunt in Tongass National Forest. When Alaskan Grandeur adventures out for hunting and fishing excursions, she can be away from port for 70 days or more. All guests, regardless of

Lawmaker against forced wolf reintroduction Aberdeen Democrat critical of state ‘translocating’ plans By Steven Friederich The Daily World
ABERDEEN — State wildlife officials say there is new evidence of more gray wolves in eastern and northern Washington state,
Confessions of a Restaurateur By Bushwhacker Bob
a revelation that makes state Rep. Brian Blake think that the state needs to just let the wolves emerge into the state from Idaho and British Columbia naturally. The Democrat from Aberdeen says he’s taking a hard line opposing part of the state’s draft wolf management plan, which authorizes “translocating” wolves that end up thriving in Washington state to the coastal areas, specifically the Willapa Hills and Olympic National Park. “There is absolutely no reason for the state to get involved and somehow force
the wolves here,” Blake said. The plan is to encourage the growth of the endangered gray wolf in Washington state so that it could eventually be delisted from the both the state and federal Endangered Species List. Early plans call for the state to help achieve 15 breeding pairs. Already, the state has confirmed at least two breeding packs in Eastern Washington with hints of paw tracks and remote camera photos showing evidence of two other potential packs. There’s also one pack that apparently had a breeding population a year ago that has simply disappeared.

Phil Anderson, the director of the state agency, told the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee last Friday that he is taking personal role in the wolf management plan to show his commitment on working on the issue. “I understand the seriousness of the issue,” Anderson told the committee. “I understand the controversial nature of the issue and I understand it’s going to need all of our attention at the highest level of the Department of Fish and Wildlife. “I’d like to find a solution that works for the citizens of the state of Washington.” Blake chairs the committee and told Anderson to expect some kind of legislation this session focusing on the issue of wolf management.
Tracking pack The state has been radio tracking the “Lookout Pack” since July 2008 and found a 350 to 400 square mile territory size. In 2008, there was evidence of three adults and six pups. In 2009, there were just two adults, one yearling and four pups, but this year, Anderson said evidence suggests the female wolf disappeared, no breeding has gone on and the pack status has officially been labeled as “uncertain.” In July 2009, wolves with what is called the “Diamond Pack” were discovered in Pend Oreille County, likely emerging from Idaho and using a 250 square mile area as their territory. The pack has experienced growth — emerging from two adults and six pups to two adults, four yearlings and six pups this year.

“I don’t plan to introduce anything, but I know several legislators who probably will,” Blake said on Monday, citing concerns he’s heard that more wolves in the state will mean livestock and elk populations that could be harmed. The first confirmed sighting of a wild gray wolf pack in decades was in 2008 in Okanogan and Chelan counties, emerging into the state from British Columbia, Anderson said.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife is reviewing nearly 65,000 public comments related to the controversial wolf management plan, which is going through an internal review at the state agency and isn’t set for approval by the Fish and Wildlife Commission until December of 2011. A 17-member citizen working group composed of ranchers, hunters, conservationists and others will take a crack at a second draft of the plan this spring.
Anderson said that if two pups from this year are still alive at the end of the year, the state will count them as a separate breeding pack. Two other wolves were caught on remote camera this past summer at the border between Canada and Pend Oreille County and may constitute a separate pack being called “Salmo Pack.” A male pup was collared in August. In southeast Washington on the southern border of Columbia County, a remote camera caught pictures of wolves in November of 2008 and paw tracks in the snow were found in February of last year. In northern Washington in Whatcom County on the border with Canada, tracks were seen this past spring in a drawdown area as well as on trails. Anderson said more confirmation of the potential pack being called “Hozomeen Pack” will be sought next year. Anderson said the state is using about $200,000 in federal funds to monitor the wolves.
One confirmed killing At this point, there’s only been one confirmed encounter of a wolf killing livestock and that was in 2008, according to Jack Fields, with the Washington Cattlemen’s Association. “All of these details tell us that the wolf is coming and it’s coming on its own without us needing to help it along,” Blake said on Monday. Last year, Blake joined fellow state Rep. Dean Takko, D-Longview, and Sen. Brian Hatfield, D-Raymond, in writing a formal letter opposing the concept of taking existing breeding wolves from one part of the state and putting them on the Olympic Peninsula. “Managing wolves that have naturally moved to a location is one thing, but intentionally moving them to a new location is quite another,” the legislators wrote.

More than 12,000 die in drug war
Marijuana use among grade students rises
Peninsula Daily News news services
MEXICO CITY — More than 12,000 people have died this year in Mexico’s drug war, officials said, making it the deadliest year since President Felipe Calderon launched a government crackdown against traffickers in 2006. The federal attorney general’s office said 12,456 people were k i l l e d through Nov. 30. Calderon The overall death toll since the launch of the drug war four years ago stands at 30,196, according to figures given to reporters during a year-end breakfast session Thursday with Atty. Gen. Arturo Chavez Chavez. But that figure appeared to underestimate the toll. Federal officials announced in August that 28,228 had been killed in

But there has been no sign of easing violence as cartels have remained locked in fierce turf battles that have most contributed to the rising toll. Estimates by Mexican intelligence put the death
count at about 32,000. This year’s death toll in drug-related violence in the border city of Ciudad Juarez rose to 3,000 on Tuesday after two men were shot dead on a street. Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El Paso, Texas, has one of the highest homicide rates in the world.
Doctors wearing red-stained coats to simulate blood protest violence in a demonstration outside the state attorney general’s office in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, last Monday. The doctors were demanding that authorities regain control of the city and guarantee public safety.
The rising death toll represents a political drag on Calderon, who has sought to assure a jittery public that the crackdown is depleting the cartels’ power as they lose bosses to death and arrest. Although the administration has contended that the vast majority of those killed are drug gang henchmen, the bloodletting has left many Mexicans convinced that the government has lost control of entire regions, such as the crimeridden northern border state of Tamaulipas. In a recent survey by the Mitofsky polling firm, 59 percent of respondents said organized-crime groups were winning the war against federal forces. In a separate poll, 4 in 5 respondents said the country was more violent than a year before. On Thursday, more than 30 business and civic groups took out full-page advertisements in newspapers pleading with the country’s leaders to bring the mayhem under control.
WASHINGTON — Marijuana use continues to increase among young people in the United States, according to an annual federally funded survey of drug, alcohol and cigarette use among U.S. youths. The proportion of eighthgraders who say they smoke marijuana daily increased from 1 percent to 1.2 percent between 2009 and 2010, while the rate among 10thgraders went from 2.8 percent to 3.3 percent, and among high-school seniors from 5.1 percent to 6.1 percent, according to the Monitoring the Future Survey, which questioned 46,482 students from 396 public and private schools. Because cigarette smoking has been declining among high-school seniors, marijuana is now more popular than cigarettes by some measures. In 2010, 21.4 percent of high-school seniors had used marijuana in the past 30 days, while 19.2 percent had smoked cigarettes, according to the survey, which is conducted by the University of Michigan. “These high rates of marijuana use during the teen and preteen years, when the brain continues to develop, places our young people at particular risk,” said Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, in a statement. “Not only does marijuana affect learning, judgment and motor skills, but research
tells us that about one in six people who start using it as adolescents become addicted.” The perception that regular marijuana smoking is harmful decreased among 10th-graders from 59.5 percent to 57.2 percent and among 12th-graders from 52.4 percent to 46.8 percent in 2010. “We should examine the extent to which the debate over medical marijuana and marijuana legalization for adults is affecting teens’ perceptions of risk,” Volkow said. “We must also find better ways to communicate to teens that marijuana use can harm their short-term performance as well as their long-term potential.”
Other drugs The use of the drug Ecstasy also increased, according to the survey, with 2.4 percent of eighth-graders and 4.7 percent of 10th-graders saying they had used the drug in the past year. That’s up from 1.3 percent and 3.7 percent, respectively. Although abuse of the prescription drug Vicodin during the past four years decreased among high-school seniors from 9.7 percent to 8 percent, the use of OxyContin, another prescription opiate, stayed about the same for 12th-graders at 5.1 percent. In a bit of good news, binge drinking continued to drop. Among high-school seniors, 23.2 percent reported having had five or more drinks in a row during the past two weeks, down from 25.2 percent in 2009 and a drop from the peak of 31.5 percent in 1998.

Secret Santa hands out $100 bills Says he’ll keep on going ‘till the money runs out’ The Associated Press
KANSAS CITY — Secret Santa II hit the streets last week in a long-standing Kansas City tradition of handing out $100 bills — sometimes several at a time — to unsuspecting strangers in thrift stores, food pantries and shelters. Some people gasped in surprise. Some wanted to know if the $100 bill the tall man in the red cap offered was fake. Others wept. Secret Santa II has seen a lot of reactions since taking over where his mentor, Kansas City’s original Secret Santa, Larry Stewart, left off when he died in 2007 at age 58. Like Stewart, who gave away more than $1 million to strangers each December in mostly $100 bills, this Secret Santa prefers to stay anonymous. A fake white beard taped to his face, Secret Santa II handed out about $10,000 in total on Tuesday. Recipients included a police officer with terminal cancer, a homeless man pushing a rickety old shopping cart, an 81-year-old woman who had recently told her 27 grandchildren she wouldn’t be able to afford any Christmas gifts, and Bernadette Turner, a 32-year-old unemployed mother of two. “It’s hard to come by,” Turner said looking in disbelief at the $200 Secret
Santa had given her. Then one of Santa’s “elves” — another tall man in a red cap — sidled up to next to Turner, asked a few questions, and handed her an additional $100. Turner, whose children are 3 and 8, was overcome. “I can only afford one gift for each child. But now . . .” she said, wiping tears from her cheeks and reaching out for a hug. “Do you believe in Santa Claus?” Capt. Ray Wynn of the Kansas City, Mo., Fire Department, asked from a few feet away. Wynn had followed Stewart on many “sleigh rides” around the country and now follows this Secret Santa, providing stories, memories and amusing sound effects. “I do now,” Turner said. “I do now.”
Secret money source Secret Santa II took over from Stewart about the time the recession hit and the economy went into a tailspin. Like Stewart, this Secret Santa doesn’t talk about his own finances, where those $100 bills come from and if — like for so many people now — they’ve been harder to come by. Come December, he just fills his pockets with money, dons his red cap and heads out looking for people to make really happy. He will likely hand out about $40,000
“The recession, unemployment — this is the time you don’t want to stop, you don’t want to back off.”
Secret Santa II on long-standing tradition
this December. He says he’ll go “till the money runs out.” “The recession, unemployment — this is the time you don’t want to stop, you don’t want to back off,” he said. He walked up to Peggy Potter, 59, of Kansas City, Kan., who was looking at some framed prints at a thrift store. He made some small talk, put his arm around her and within minutes she was crying. Her son died about a year and a half ago. Her husband died in July and her daughter died soon after that. “I’m just . . . today’s been a rough day for me, just thinking about my loved ones,” she said. “I’ve been having a hard time paying for all the funerals.” Santa gave her $200, listened more, hugged her, and told her the poster she was holding had special meaning. It was a photo of two hands, one large, one small. Words printed at the bottom could have been written by Secret Santa, the The Associated Press original or the current one. It said: “Kindness in giv- Burnadette Turner gives Secret Santa II a hug after he gave her a couple of $100 bills at a thrift store in Kansas City. ing creates love.”
Bavarian babes video boosts city tourism But not all in Leavenworth are on board with racy ad By Rachel Schleif
The Wenatchee World
L E AV E N W O R T H — Nutcracker Woody Goomsba is revealing his sexy side in Leavenworth’s latest ad campaign, but not everyone likes what they see. The “Gitcha Goomsba Up” music video launched by Howell at the Moon Productions has become an internet sensation. Hip-thrusting Bavarian babes, in St. Pauli girl tops and extra-short dirndls, dance around a man-sized Woody Goomsba. Their bare midriffs undulate to a hip-hop beat: “He’s a nutcracker, so bring on the nuts.” Between dance sequences, the video cuts to scenes of river rafting in central Washington, road cycling, fishing and happy families. In two weeks, the threeminute music video has picked up nearly 80,000 hits on YouTube.
Howell at the Moon producer Jeff Ostenson called the video a wildly successful experiment in social marketing. “We’ve been absolutely amazed and excited about the response,” he said. Ostenson said online bloggers have compared the $11,000 video to multi-million dollar tourism campaigns, such as “Pure Michigan.”
One of five videos
“We talked a lot about doing something for younger generation, and that’s when viral marketing started to really take off. It really changed the way a lot of people were marketing. It was a method of reaching millions of people really cheaply.”

Pat Rutledge, owner of A Book for All Seasons, said the video made her smile. “I understand it doesn’t appeal to everyone, but I don’t think it’s going to have a negative effect on Leavenworth,” she said. Woody’s frat boy fantasy was a one-time venture, not a lasting theme for the town, Ostenson said. “There won’t be another hip-hop video because we’ve done that,” Ostenson said. Other plans are in the works for Woody Goomsba. “He’s going to be helping people have the right kind of experience in Leavenworth,” Ostenson said. “As a rule, that’s what we try to focus on — visitors having a good time.”

How to survive a nuclear bomb blast New advice as officials rethink the unthinkable By William J. Broad The New York Times
NEW YORK — Suppose the unthinkable happened, and terrorists struck New York or another big city with an atom bomb. What should people there do? The government has a surprising new message: Do not flee. Get inside any stable building and don’t come out till officials say it’s safe. The advice is based on recent scientific analyses showing that a nuclear attack is much more survivable if you immediately shield yourself from the lethal radiation that follows a blast, a simple tactic seen as saving hundreds of thousands of lives. Even staying in a car, the studies show, would reduce casualties by more than 50 percent; hunkering down in a basement would be better by far. But a problem for the Obama administration is how to spread the word without seeming alarmist about a subject that few politicians care to consider, let alone discuss. So officials are proceeding gingerly in a campaign
to educate the public. Officials say they are moving aggressively to conduct drills, prepare communication guides and raise awareness among emergency planners of how to educate the public. Over the years, Washington has sought to prevent nuclear terrorism and limit its harm, mainly by governmental means. It has spent tens of billions of dollars on everything from intelligence and securing nuclear materials to equipping local authorities with radiation detectors. The new wave is citizen preparedness. For people who survive the initial blast, the main advice is to fight the impulse to run and instead seek shelter from lethal radioactivity. Even a few hours of protection, officials say, can greatly increase survival rates. Administration officials argue that the cold war created an unrealistic sense of fatalism about a terrorist nuclear attack. “It’s more survivable than most people think,” said an official deeply
involved in the planning, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “The key is avoiding nuclear fallout.” The administration is making that argument with state and local authorities and has started to do so with the general public as well. Its Citizen Corps website says a nuclear detonation is “potentially survivable for thousands, especially with adequate shelter and education.” A color illustration shows which kinds of buildings and rooms offer the best protection from radiation.
Citizen guide In June, the administration released to emergency officials around the nation an unclassified planning guide 130 pages long on how to respond to a nuclear attack. It stressed citizen education, before any attack. Without that knowledge, the guide added, “people will be more likely to follow the natural instinct to run from danger, potentially exposing themselves to fatal doses of radiation.” Specialists outside of Washington are divided on the initiative. One group says the administration is overreacting to an atomic threat that is all but nonexistent.
But another school says that the potential consequences are so high that the administration is, if anything, being too timid. White House officials say they are aware of the issue’s political delicacy but are nonetheless moving ahead briskly.
A blast, and . . . A nuclear blast produces a blinding flash, burning heat and crushing wind. The fireball and mushroom cloud carry radioactive particles upward, and the wind sends them near and far. The government initially knew little about radioactive fallout. But in the 1950s, as the cold war intensified, scientists monitoring test explosions learned that the tiny particles throbbed with fission products — fragments of split atoms, many highly radioactive and potentially lethal. But after a burst of interest in fallout shelters, the public and even the government grew increasingly skeptical about civil defense as nuclear arsenals grew to hold thousands of warheads. In dozens of programs, the Bush administration focused on prevention but also dealt with disaster response and the acquisition of items like

Has anybody noticed the new penny yet? Peninsula Daily News news services
WASHINGTON — You may have noticed a small change in your small change. More likely, you haven’t. Gone from the new Lincoln penny is the reproduction of the Lincoln Memorial, complete with a really tiny seated Lincoln, that has been “tails” since 1959. In its place is a “Union Shield,” a simple acorn of 13 stripes capped with the motto “E Pluribus Unum.” On the “heads” side, the iconic profile of the 16th president by Victor David Brenner remains unchanged. The U.S. Mint has been stamping out the new design since February; presses in Philadelphia and Denver have produced more than 3.6 billion of them. But officials said banks have been slow to request new coins because of the down economy. It will be years, they said, before shield pennies become as common as the tens of billions of Lincoln Memorial pennies now filling sofa cracks and dresser
tops across the country. Mint spokesman Michael White said few comments have come from the public, probably because few have spotted the new design. “It’s a phenomenon of notice — once you see one, they’re everywhere,” White said. “But you don’t tend to examine your change unless you’re a coin collector.”
‘I’m miss it’ Most visitors to the Lincoln Memorial — where a huge mock-up of the old penny adorns the entrance to an exhibit hall — said they were sorry to see the memorial end its half-century run as the most common edifice in American pockets. “This building has a lot of meaning for me,” said Victor Schubert, 73, a Racine, Wis., lawyer who first came to Washington on a high-school trip and still makes time to walk up the steps to see the giant Lincoln whenever he’s in town. “I stood right by that column on the corner and looked out over this beautiful expanse and decided I
wanted to become a lawyer. “I’ll miss seeing it on the penny.” Janey Hockenhull, chaperoning a group of fifthgraders from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., said she doesn’t like to see perfectly good coins get the flip, as it were. “If something doesn’t need changing, don’t change it,” she said. “What was wrong with the old penny?” Nothing, Mint officials said, but that didn’t stop Congress from demanding a new one, as it has about every 50 years since the Lincoln penny was introduced in 1909 to mark the centennial of the great man’s birth. Just as that first design, with ears of wheat framing the reverse side, gave way to the Memorial penny in 1959, lawmakers directed the Mint to update the coin again this year. (For Lincoln’s actual bicentennial year, 2009, the Mint released four commemorative pennies depicting different phases of his life.) “It really hasn’t made
much of a ripple this time except in coin circles,” said Douglas Mudd, curator of the American Numismatic Association’s Money Museum in Colorado Springs, Colo. “I think it was a bigger deal when the wheat penny went away. Some people got very worked up about that one.” U.S. Mint Part of the reason the The new penny replaces the Lincoln Memorial new penny has dropped without much reaction may with a “Union Shield” on the “tails” side. be a general new-coin ing quarters honoring wasn’t dictated by Congress, fatigue, Mudd said. national parks, including White said.

The law remains the same under the “Emergency Zone Law” but creates the 200-foot zones in front and behind emergency vehicles, doubling the penalty for failing to slow down or safely move over within the zone. In 2008, a year after the “Move Over Law” went into effect, 30 patrol cars were hit by motorists on state highways. Last year, an additional 28 patrol vehicles were hit by drivers during roadside traffic stops and other investigations, Burns said. One of those vehicles was assigned to State Patrol Sgt. Dan Atchison. In October 2008, he and other troopers were tracking an escaped sex offender

since,” Atchison said. But Burns and other officials who attended the news briefing said it’s not just troopers who are at risk from impaired, speeding and distracted drivers. In September, tow-truck driver Tony Padilla, 51, of Burien, was hooking up a disabled vehicle on southbound Interstate 5 in Seattle when he was fatally struck by a vehicle. The driver and passenger both fled the scene but were later arrested. The driver has been accused of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Between April 2009 and Nov. 30 of this year, troopers contacted 2,940 drivers and issued 592 citations under the “Move Over Law,” according to the patrol.
and had set up a containment zone on east Interstate 90 near North Bend. When two speeding vehicles came around a bend, one hit the other and then careened into Atchison’s patrol car, which had its lights on and was parked in a median to the left of the highway.
OLYMPIA — Drivers who speed past emergency vehicles stopped on state highways or fail to give first-responders more room will face hefty new penalties beginning Jan. 1. The state’s new “Emergency Zone Law” builds on the 2007 “Move Over Law,” creating a 200-foot zone around stationary emergency vehicles that have their lights activated — including patrol cars, fire engines, tow trucks and state Department of Transportation vehicles. The enhanced law is meant to offer greater protection to first-responders, said Capt. Steve Burns, commander of the State Patrol’s District 2, which covers King County. Speeding fines in the emergency zones will double, and fines for failing to slow down and safely move over will increase from $124 to $248, he said. “This gives the law a little bit more bite,” said Burns at a news briefing Tuesday morning in a AAA garage bay in Seattle. Under the existing law, motorists traveling on a roadway with at least two lanes in their direction of travel must move over a
lane from the shoulder when approaching a stationary emergency vehicle with its lights activated. They are also required to slow down and proceed with caution. On roadways with only one lane in their direction of travel, motorists must pass to the left of an emergency vehicle if they’re able to safely do so, while yielding the right of way to all vehicles traveling in the opposite direction.

Goodbye, Hawaii — aloha, Fargo Employees with sub-par results receive firm’s sub-freezing perk The Associated Press
FARGO, N.D. — There is an old saying in the sales business: Always be closing. Here is a new one: Always be freezing, if you do not sell enough. The Pennsylvania company that makes Hot Tamales candy offered its sales team an allexpenses-paid trip to Hawaii if it met its annual goals, and a trip to the nation’s arctic tundra if it didn’t. The Just Born Inc. team did not meet its target and, last week, about two dozen salespeople gathered inside the 19-story Radisson hotel — the tallest building in frozen Fargo. Outside, the temperature was 7 degrees. The ground had 2 feet of snow. Not exactly Hawaii: Honolulu was sunny and a comfortable 82 degrees. “Fargo is not what you would think is one of the greatest locales in the United States and technically we didn’t make our year,” said Dave Bayha, a Just Born manager. “It was somewhat of a punishment.” Would Bayha rather be in Hawaii?
“Um, sure,” the Phoenix, Ariz., resident said, laughing again. The team had a good year, increasing sales from the previous year by 2 percent, said Josh Halpern, the company’s director of U.S. sales. The goal was a 4-percent bump. That earned them the trip to Fargo. Some had to go shopping for real winter clothes, such as furry bomber hats, long underwear and parkas. They are trying to make the best of it, with a little humor. They planned tours of two North Dakota wineries and a winter extravaganza with a sleigh ride, tobogganing and hot toddies around a fireplace inside a chalet.
All you can eat spaghetti On their first night in town, they went to the VFW in West Fargo for a spaghetti dinner. Five bucks a plate, all you can eat. Afterward, they hauled an old-school popcorn machine into a conference room and watched a movie. “Fargo,” of course. Yah sure, you betcha. “Watching ‘Fargo’ in Fargo is just one of those random bucket

Spiders, snakes? Brain ailment gives her no fear Abnormality has its dangers, studies suggest By Malcolm Ritter The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Meet SM, a 44-year-old woman who literally knows no fear. She’s not afraid to handle snakes. She’s not afraid of the “The Blair Witch Project,” “The Shining,” or “Arachnophobia.” When she visited a haunted house, it was a monster who was afraid of her. SM isn’t some coldblooded psychopath or a hero with a tight rein on her emotions. She’s an ordinary mother of three with a specific psychological impairment, the result of a very rare genetic disease that damaged a brain structure called the amygdala. Her case shows that the amygdala plays a key role in making people feel afraid in threatening situations, researchers say. Her life history also shows that living without fear can be dangerous, they said. A study of her fearlessness was published online Thursday in the journal Current Biology by University of Iowa researcher Justin Feinstein and colleagues.
As is typical, the paper identifies her only as “SM.” Feinstein declined to make SM available for an interview with The Associated Press, citing laboratory policy about confidentiality. An expert unconnected with the study cautioned against drawing conclusions about the amygdala, noting that her own work with a similarly brain-damaged woman found no such impairment. But another expert said the new finding made sense. SM has been studied for more than 20 years, and many papers have been published about her fearrelated abnormalities. She has trouble recognizing fear in facial expressions, for example.
Another experiment In another experiment, published in 1995, she was blasted with a loud horn every time she saw a bluecolored square appear on a screen. Despite the repeated blasting horn, she never developed the fear an ordinary person would feel when seeing the blue square. Other research shows SM scores normally on tests of intelligence, memory and language, and she experiences emotions other than fear. She lives independently. SM recalls being afraid as a child, like the time she

behavior and asked her to rate her fear levels. Although she had said she hated snakes and spiders and tries to avoid them, that’s not what happened at a pet store. She eagerly held a snake for more than three minutes, rubbing its scales and touching its flicking tongue. And she wanted to touch some of the store’s more dangerous and bigger snakes, even after an employee warned her about the danger. She had to be stopped
from touching a tarantula. “This is so cool!” she exclaimed about the snake experience. When asked to rate her fear from zero to 10 during the pet shop visit, she never went higher than a minimal 2. Researchers also took her to a haunted house. She and the research team walked through with five women, all strangers, who regularly responded with “loud screams of fright,” the paper reports. From the outset, SM led the way, often calling, “This
way, guys, follow me!” Not only did the “monsters” fail in their attempts to scare her, but she eagerly approached them. But her fear ratings? Zero. David Amaral, a University of California, Davis, psychiatry professor who has studied how this type of brain damage affects fear in monkeys, said the new study “confirms something we’ve pretty much known for a long time. . . . “The amygdala is a danger detector.”

was cornered by a snarling Doberman pinscher. But maybe that was before her disease wiped out the amygdala in both the left and right sides of her brain, the researchers say. She apparently hasn’t felt fear as an adult, not even 15 years ago in an incident described by the researchers. A man jumped up from a park bench, pressed a knife to her throat and hissed, “I’m going to cut you.” SM, who heard a church choir practicing in the distance, looked coolly at him and replied, “If you’re going to kill me, you’re going to have to go through my God’s angels first.” The man suddenly let her go. She didn’t run home. She walked. “Her lack of fear may have freaked the guy out,” Feinstein said. But it also got her into that situation in the first place, he noted. SM had willingly approached the man when he asked her to, even though it was late at night and she was alone, and even though she thought he looked “drugged out.” SM has also walked into other dangerous situations because of her lack of fear, and all in all, it’s remarkable she’s still alive, Feinstein said. For their report in the journal, researchers exposed her to scary situations — snakes, scenes from horror movies and the haunted house. They observed her

‘Not doing it’ again OFM is dead set against lawmakers renewing the freeze. “Next biennium, we’re not doing it,” said Marty Brown, the governor’s budget director who signs each form. “If they put it in, we’re not doing it. It is micromanaging to the nth degree.” The freeze may not be needed “in perpetuity,” said Rep. Jeannie Darneille, a Tacoma Democrat who cosponsored the freeze legislation. The general-government agencies Darneille oversees may eventually reach “crisis-level staffing” that can’t withstand a hiring ban. But, she said, “I don’t think we’re there yet.” Brown said his agency has followed the Legislature’s order to grant exemptions only “for the critically necessary work of an agency.”

Gas prices rise PORT ANGELES — At a time when many are trying to watch their wallets in the holiday season, gasoline prices have shot upward. The state’s average price of gasoline is $3.14 per gallon for regular — up 12 cents from last month, according to the AAA auto club. The North Olympic Peninsula also saw a doubledigit increase at the pump over the past month. The average price of regular gasoline in Jefferson and Clallam counties was $3.15 a gallon Saturday, an increase of 11 cents over the previous month. The national average price of $2.98 is up by 12 cents, which is 38 cents more than the national price on Dec. 18 last year, when it was $2.60. AAA blames the increase to how investors are reacting to the price of crude oil and the weak dollar, An additional influence on prices has been how investors are interpreting economic data, according to an agency announcement about the higher gasoline prices. “As the past 25 years have shown us, crude oil and gasoline prices are tremendously tidal,” the auto club said. “Throughout 2010, those prices have ebbed and flowed with the financial tides, and that is certainly the case so far in December.” Benchmark oil for January delivery rose 34 cents Friday to settle at $88.02 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. In London, Brent crude rose 7 cents to settle at $91.67 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange.

Indicators up NEW YORK — A gauge of future economic activity rose in November, at the fastest pace since March, suggesting the economy will strengthen early next year. The Conference Board said its index of leading economic indicators rose 1.1 percent last month the biggest increase since March, when the index jumped 1.4 percent. The leading indicators rose 0.4 percent in October and 0.6 percent in November. The index has risen for five straight months. Deutsche Bank economist Joseph LaVorgna said the index’s recent leap suggested that economic growth picked up significantly, to above 3 percent, in the October-December quarter and would continue to accelerate in the first three months of next year. Faster economic growth would help lower the 9.8 percent unemployment rate. The economy grew at a 2.5 percent pace from July through September.

Hoping other states will follow suit, California regulators overwhelmingly approved the nation’s most extensive system giving owners of power plants, refineries and other major polluters financial incentives to emit fewer greenhouse gases. The Air Resources Board voted 9-1 Thursday to pass the key piece of California’s 2006 climate law — called AB32. Under the law, a company that produces pollution, such as a utility or a refinery, buys a permit from the state that allows it to send a specified amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air each year. Those permits could then be bought and sold by the polluters in a marketplace. The Associated Press

Vintner bottles hope for animals Special wine raises funds for Humane Society Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Harbinger Winery & Brew House has produced a new red wine, Menagerie, to raise awareness and money for the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society. This special bottling is only available at the winery, 2358 W. U.S. Highway 101, through the end of the year. Signed posters of the label are also available at the winery for $10 each. All proceeds from the sale of the wine and poster will benefit the Port Angelesbased humane society and animal shelter. Menagerie is described by Harbinger as “a melodious merlot with a mission.” Menagerie is the third fundraising venture by Harbinger and its sister business, Adventures Through Kayaking. The first event was an exclusive fourcourse wild mushroom dinner paired with Harbinger’s award-winning wines. All of the proceeds from that sold-out event went to the Humane Society. The evening was kicked off with a very successful “Yappy Hour” during which several of the animals from the humane society found homes. Harbinger is also partnering with Adventures Through Kayaking on the two businesses’ third annual raffle, with proceeds also benefitting the humane society. Winners can paddle off with a kayak and a Wine Club membership, among other items. “We put on the raffle with the idea of getting people in our community involved,” owner Sara Gagnon said. “There are many kind and generous businesses as well as individuals in this area.” The raffle has generated more than $6,000 since it started in 2008.
Ralph Howard of Port Angeles gives a hopeful kitten a pat at Harbinger Winery and Brew House’s “Yappy Hour” fundraiser for the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society. The winery is selling bottles of a fundraising vintage, Menagerie. Raffle tickets are $5 each. The raffle will be held Thursday, and the winner does not need to be present. Harbinger’s tasting room is open daily for both wine and beer tasting and sales. Hours are from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, phone Harbinger at 360-452-4262.

Bank of America stops handling WikiLeaks payments The Associated Press
Bank of America Corp. has joined several other financial institutions in refusing to handle payments for WikiLeaks, the latest blow to the secret-releasing organization’s efforts to continue operating under pressure from governments and the corporate
world. The Charlotte, N.C.-based bank’s move adds to similar actions by Mastercard Inc. and PayPal Inc. Though previous moves have prompted reprisals by hackers, Bank of America’s site is as wellprotected as they come, security experts say.
Its site was problem-free through midafternoon Saturday. “This decision is based upon our reasonable belief that WikiLeaks may be engaged in activities that are, among other things, inconsistent with our internal policies for processing payments,” the bank said in a statement Saturday.
Earlier this month, Internet “hacktivists” operating under the label “Operation Payback” claimed responsibility in a Twitter message for causing technical problems at the MasterCard website after it ended its relationship with WikiLeaks. PayPal saw its website subject to an attack that slowed it down but did not signifi-
cantly affect payments. Bank of America’s website offers access to customer accounts through its home page, but it could be a tough nut for hackers to crack, security experts say. Reached by phone, Bank of America spokesman Scott Silvestri declined further comment to The Associated Press.

The Last Word in Astrology
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Plan to socialize if it will enable you to spend time with people you find interesting, but don’t share your secrets. Listen and ask questions. The more progressive and positive you are, the greater your chance of future success. 4 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): With the end of the year fast approaching, you should be finishing what needs to be done and preparing to enjoy people, places and partners. Walk away from a questionable money deal, even if you let someone down who wants to take part. 3 stars
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Share your ideas, plans and thoughts with someone you respect. You will get a different perspective. Travel plans will face some uncertainties and delays. A passionate moment with someone special will leave you breathless and confused. 4 stars
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): There are too many uncertainties going on to make any sort of decision that will affect your home and personal life. Keep the peace for now and spend less time at home or with people who manipulate or confuse you emotionally. 3 stars
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Enjoy the festivities in your community. Take precautions against overindulgent tendencies on your part or the part of someone you care about. It can negatively influence your future if you aren’t careful. 2 stars
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): You will have a problem with someone from your past if you are too talkative, pushy or aggressive. You are far better off letting others take the spotlight. A relationship you have with someone you know through work should be put on the back burner for now. 3 stars
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Although you want to help the world right now, focus on the people you are responsible for. Don’t donate or overspend when the future looks so uncertain. An offer that will help you bring in extra cash must be taken. 3 stars
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will face opposition at home as tension mounts, so get out of the house. Enjoy all the decorations around town or share in a community event that reminds you to be thankful. Don’t let a professional change get you down. 5 stars
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t be fooled by what a negative person says about your professional position or goals.You have to follow through with your plans if you want to reap the rewards. Spend time with positive people who make you feel good about yourself. 3 stars
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Mix the old with the new, the young with the old and the past with the future and you will discover answers to questions you’ve been asking lately. You do need a change but you don’t want it to cost too much. 3 stars
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Give your time and talent to an organization you believe in, not your cash. That should go toward your home and family before you can share it with outsiders. Don’t let someone from your past with a sob story take advantage of you. 5 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Abide by the rules. An emotional encounter with a neighbor, friend or relative will be because someone overreacted or was overindulgent. Curb your habits and refuse to argue and you’ll avoid trouble. A quiet evening with someone special will pay off. 2 stars

Interactive movies are always a big hit, such as the all-new “The Lion of Sodor,” featuring Thomas & Friends. As for books, there’s tons of choices. The World of Shakespeare by Michael Rogalski is a beautiful book that incorporates finger puppets and will keep fingers and creative minds busy for hours. For fitness fans, inspire success by providing a super cool iPod carrying case, like the Armpocket Sport 20, worn on the wrist or arm. Visit www.arm pocket.com for neat products. Or perhaps they would like to choose their own exercising gadget like the HydraCoach Intelligent Water Bottle, featured on
“The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Finally, there is music. Since it’s geared more towards personal taste, ask for ideas before purchasing.
Can you help? For some reason, when our 7-year-old is at school, within the first hour, his teacher says he begins to stutter and withdraws. However, we have never heard him do this. How should we approach the situation in a healthy and nonaggressive manner?

Seattle high school student finds attraction to teacher distracting DEAR JOHN: I find it so difficult to keep my mind on school because I’ve got the hots for one of my teachers. She’s cute, and sometimes the way she talks to me, I swear she’s flirting. I’m a senior and will be 18 in five months, which means I won’t be jailbait. What do you think: Should I make a play for her? — Big Man on Campus in Seattle Dear Big Man on Campus: I’m guessing that your teacher’s way to relate to you is in no way consciously flirtatious. That said, even if you wait until after you’ve graduated to ask her out, your advance will be putting her in an awkward
Venus John Gray position — and that will make things uncomfortable for both of you. She’ll have to explain that she was trying to earn your respect, not your attraction. Worse yet, it may jeopardize her job. The consequences of that may be more than you counted on. Try to see the relationship as it is: two people who feel comfortable in each other’s presence and appreciate the mutual respect between them.
Until you marry, you’ll date many women: your age, as well as younger and perhaps older. These experiences will help you discern what you really want in a long-term relationship. Hopefully, some of the traits you see in your teacher will be found in others who attract you.
Flirting boyfriend Dear John: My boyfriend is a man ho. I’ve found out that he texts other women and flirts with them on Facebook. But I still love him. Will he ever change? — Brokenhearted in Orlando, Fla. Dear Brokenhearted: In a word: no. If he has been reaching out to other
women while he’s in a supposedly committed relationship with you, then he doesn’t respect your feelings for him. He doesn’t harbor serious feelings for you, either. It’s time you quit wasting your time. If you are really looking for mutual commitment, look elsewhere. The sooner you do, the sooner you’ll find the love you deserve.
Not ready to date Dear John: I’ve got some wonderful and supportive friends who know that my divorce has made me really unhappy and, quite honestly, left me with a lot of negative feelings about relationships in general. Turn

Peninsula women share their thoughts Photos
and interviews by
WE’RE INTRODUCING A new Peninsula Woman feature this week: “Generations,” a set of woman-on-the-street interviews on topics serious and lighthearted, timely and timeless — depending on the week. We’ll ask North Olympic Peninsula women of various age groups about things that we hope will show us some of the differences — and common ground — among the generations. Check this space each Sunday for a snapshot of women’s points of view. Peninsula Woman
“Probably snow falling down to make a white Christmas. That would make Christmas ideal. Being with my family and seeing my close relatives. I’m just married so I have new relatives to get to know. It’s all about being together. Health, well-being and togetherness, that’s most important to me.”
“No drama at our family get-togethers anymore. No drinking and being crazy either, like what has happened in the past. I want to be with my boyfriend and get to know his relatives. I’ve had two marriages in the past so I look forward to being with Jerry, who I’ve known since 1975. I want to be less focused on presents and more on each other.”
“Celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. Giving to each other and giving to the community in His name. We want people to get to know the Jesus who was born on that day. And like Thanksgiving we will go and help the homeless on Christmas. Of course, celebrating with loved ones, too.”

body is subjected to untold rigors — not to mention the constant threat of injury — to fulfill its strict, time-honored requirements. Are different body types allowed? Must one be railthin to qualify as a top dancer? To longtime observer Wendy Perron, editor of Dance Magazine, the answer is no. “Perhaps she is not the thinnest dancer on the stage, but who cares?” Perron said in an interview. “What she has is warmth. She is just wonderful in the role of the Sugar Plum Fairy, welcoming Marie and her prince to the Land of the Sweets. Not every dancer can pull that off.” Indeed, one imagines that Ringer’s proficiency in the role is what led NYCB head Peter Martins to cast her in the opening night of “Nutcracker” this season, one of only two performances to which critics are invited. Martins, too, was unavailable for comment. Yet Macaulay wrote: “This didn’t feel, however, like an opening night. Jenifer Ringer, as the Sugar Plum Fairy, looked as if she’d eaten one sugar plum too many; and Jared Angle, as the Cavalier, seems to have been sampling half the Sweet realm.”

“We could go for rides on my motorcycle, take my dog to the park, barbecue burgers and hot dogs,” Traci said.

I can’t explain. I need to focus on a job, I’m broke and need to get my thoughts together, blah, blah, blah.” “I was absolutely shocked,” she said. “I e-mailed him back and asked what was going on.

“He constantly talked about ‘our’ future,” she said. “It scared me, but it was flattering at the same time. He’d call every night, and we’d talk for several hours. “I went to his apartment every weekend. He told me to bring my dog so I didn’t have to go home and feed her. He kept saying, ‘I don’t

Not in good place I don’t think so. I think it was timing. A man who’s out of a job is not in a place to start a new relationship. I take Brennan at his word. It wasn’t Traci, it was him. He needed to find a job and feel like a man who had something to offer before he could pursue a relationship. That’s what I think. What do you think?

Do your best to never interrupt her, and you’ll be surprised to see that in most cases your partner will pick up on what you’re doing.
