Missing PT Possible service boy found OK cuts, layoffs loom By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — An 8-year-old Port Townsend boy whose disappearance triggered a statewide Amber Alert on Tuesday morning was found safe with his mother. Port Townsend police said the boy, Silas Rodriguez, was found with his mother, Tiffany Rondeau, 31, in Bremerton. Rondeau does not have custody of her son. She was booked into the Jefferson County jail for investigation of custodial interference. “She doesn’t have anything other than visitation rights with him,” said Port Townsend Police Sgt. Ed Green. Information from the boy’s grandparents and father led to an initial missing child report, which is one step below a Amber Alert. The missing child report was issued at about 9 p.m. Monday. The Amber Alert was issued
shortly after midnight. “As we were gathering information and getting tips that were coming in, we became more and more con- Rodriguez cerned about his safety,” Green said. Rondeau is described as a transient from Port Townsend. Acting on information from Port Townsend police, Bremerton police arrested Rondeau at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. Green said Port Townsend police have worked with other agencies during Amber Alerts but had not been directly involved in a case since the missing child alert system started in 1996. He credited citizens who stepped forward with timely information that led to Silas being found. “The public can be thanked for that one,” Green said.
Transit agency looks to sales tax bid By Jeff Chew
Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — Jefferson Transit Authority board members Tuesday approved operating and capital fund budgets of about $5.1 million that will mean layoffs and service cuts if voters don’t approve a proposed sales tax increase in February. The transit board of Jefferson County’s three commissioners and two Port Townsend City Council members unanimously passed the 2011 budget — about $300,000 less than the 2010 figure — and officially endorsed a Feb. 8 special election ballot measure that asks voter to approve a 0.3 percent sales tax increase to sustain services. The approved budget does not include projections of revenue from
the proposed tax increase. It would be amended to reflect those revenues — which would be received in September — if voters approve the sales tax increase, which would add 3 cents to every $10 purchase in Jefferson County and bring the sales tax rate to 9 percent.
Layoffs, service cuts Jefferson Transit Executive Director Peggy Hanson said that if the sales tax measure fails, up to six bus drivers would be laid off at some point next year after the special election. Also, weekend bus service would be cut and create weekday schedules that would at times result in rider bus-stop waits of an hour or more, she said.
An election loss also would cut Dial-A-Ride that predominantly serves the disabled and seniors, Hanson said. Also affected would be Jefferson Transit service between Forks and Grays Harbor County, which Hanson calls a “lifeline.” She said that failure of the measure would mean decreasing public bus operation from 450 to 350 hours per week. Should it pass, she said, the system would remain unfettered. “It will keep us above water,” she said. No opposition was heard at public hearings on the budget and ballot proposals during the transit board meeting at Mountain View Commons. Turn

SEQUIM — John Grissim may beat his chest at a “Mingle with the Cast Party” on Saturday, Jan. 8 — but if he does, it will be only to illustrate how he made the sound of rotating helicopter blades that will be heard in the radio drama, “Adrian Cross, For Hire.” Grissim — writer, director and producer of the show that will air at 8 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 16 — will share war stories and introduce the cast at a Grissim fundraising party that will predate the first broadcast of the locally produced show on Sequim’s nonprofit station, KSQM 91.5 FM. Admission will be free to the party from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Olympic Cellars Winery, 255410 U.S. Highway 101, between Port Angeles and Sequim.

As gasoline use drops, so does state revenue Recession, greater fuel efficiency reasons for decline The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — The trend toward lower gasoline consumption is like a flashing yellow light in the new 20-year plan from the state Transportation Commission. To improve or even maintain
mobility in the state, the commission is recommending new ways to raise money beyond the gas tax — wider use of toll charges, a new vehicle excise tax, local tax options and a tax on alternative-fuel vehicles. The fuel tax now pays 78 percent of the state’s transportation needs under the $8.8 billion twoyear budget. That money goes not only for major construction, but also for ferries, rail, the State Patrol and local government.
But average gasoline consumption has fallen steadily since 2000 and will continue to fall, according to projections, meaning there will be increasingly less money available for the state’s transportation system. Greater fuel efficiency is a big reason for the decline, along with the current economic recession. At the same time, efficient transportation is seen as a key to economic vitality in Washington, said Carol Moser of Richland, one
of the transportation commissioners. “Nearly half of the jobs in our state depend on freight mobility,” she said. According to the 20-year plan, the state will have unfunded transportation needs of about $175 billion to $200 billion through 2030, including $69 billion in local and regional projects. The state already is looking at cutting engineering and technical jobs, reducing ferry service and
Year-end Close out On All Chevrolets & Subarus
increasing ferry fares. The commission is recommending switching from a flat gas-tax charge to an indexed charge that would increase with inflation. Tolls, like those either collected now or to be collected on major Puget Sound projects, may become more widely used in the future, the commission said. The plan was developed over two years and includes a range of comments from across the state. More than 700 people participated in developing the plan.

Alfred E. Kahn, 93, who presided over the historic deregulation of the airline industry during the Carter administration, paving the way for JetBlue and other low-cost carriers, died Monday. Mr. Kahn, an economics professor at Cornell University, died of cancer at his home in Ithaca, N.Y., Mr. Kahn the school in 1978 said in a statement. University spokeswoman Claudia Wheatley confirmed his death. A leading scholar on public-utility deregulation, Mr. Kahn led the move to deregulate U.S. airlines as chief of the now-defunct Civil Aeronautics Board in 1977-1978. The board had to give its approval before airlines could fly specific routes or change fares. “Historically, the board has insisted on secondguessing decisions by individual carriers to offer price reductions,” Mr. Kahn said in early 1978 as socalled “super-saver fares” swept the industry. “During the last several

months, we have been abandoning the paternalistic role, leaving the introduction of discount fares increasingly to the management.” President Jimmy Carter embraced deregulation as a means of stimulating economic growth. Mr. Kahn was largely instrumental in garnering the support needed to push through the Airline Deregulation Act of 1978 — the first thorough dismantling of a comprehensive system of government control since 1935.
Bernie Wilson, 64, a baritone member of the rhythm and blues group that produced the 1972 hit “If You Don’t Know Me by Now,” has died. Mr. Wilson died early Sunday at Kresson View Center in Voorhees, N.J., following a stroke and a heart attack, his cousin, Faith Peace-Mazzccua, said Monday. Philadelphia International Records, the former record company for Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, said Mr. Wilson’s death leaves Lloyd Parks as the sole surviving member of the group’s lineup at the time. The lineup also featured Teddy Pendergrass and
Lawrence Brown. The group produced a string of R&B hits in the ’70s and helped define the Sound of Philadelphia.
John Warhola, 85, the older brother who helped raise pop art icon Andy Warhol and later helped establish the Andy Warhol Museum in their native Pittsburgh, has died. Mr. Warhola died Christmas Eve after battling pneumonia at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, Mr. Warhola according to in 2002 his son, Donald Warhola. He was one of three founding members of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and was its vice president for 20 years. The foundation established the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh in 1994, seven years after the artist — whose given name was Andy Warhola — died at age 58 from complications following gall bladder surgery.

Briefly: Nation Judge clears way for Alaska Senate win JUNEAU, Alaska — A federal judge Tuesday dismissed a lawsuit by Republican Joe Miller and lifted a stay on certification of Alaska’s U.S. Senate election, clearing the way for Sen. Lisa Murkowski to officially be declared the winner later this week. The rulings by U.S. District Judge Ralph Beistline mean Alaska state officials will certify the November election Miller results Thursday. That will allow Murkowski to be sworn in when the new term of Congress convenes next week, and make her the first U.S. Senate candidate since 1954 to win with a write-in campaign. Miller, a tea party favorite who defeated Murkowski in Alaska’s GOP primary only to be confronted with her moreenergetic November write-in campaign, could still appeal. His spokesman, Randy DeSoto, said Tuesday that Beistline’s decision was being reviewed.

NYC digs out of snow
NEW YORK — Hundreds of airline passengers were stranded for up to 10 hours on the tarmac at overworked Kennedy Airport. The weekend blizzard proved to be the curse that keeps on giving Tuesday, as confusion and frustration snowballed in New York and the rest of the country.

Briefly: World S. African police seize weapons for Somalia JOHANNESBURG — South African police seized a shipment of guns they believe was bound for Somalia to be used against pirates in a possible violation of a U.N. arms embargo, authorities said Tuesday. Eight assault rifles fitted with telescopic and silencing devices, two AK-47s, two shotguns and a revolver were confiscated from a home near the port city of Durban. Police had been tracking the shipment and four people — two South Africans and two foreigners — were arrested in the Dec. 23 raid and are out on bail, said South African police spokesman Vincent Mdunge. Police are trying to determine whether a port official helped move the weapons. Mdunge would not disclose the two foreigners’ nationalities. The seizure follows weeks of speculation over a controversial program, involving an ex-CIA deputy station chief and a former U.S. ambassador, to train and fund antipiracy forces in Somalia.

Resort’s ski lift fails; riders fall or get stuck Children among hospitalized, but ungroomed snow limits injuries By Glenn Adams
The Associated Press
CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine — A 35-year-old chair lift set for improvements failed Tuesday in high winds at a Maine resort, sending skiers — some of them children — plummeting into ungroomed snow far below that fell with the Northeast’s recent blizzard and softened the landing. At least eight people, the children among them, were taken to a hospital after the double-chair lift at Sugarloaf derailed during a busy vacation week at the resort 120 miles north of Portland, Maine. Dozens of skiers remained on the crippled lift for an hour or more until patrols could get them down. The resort was not operating the failed lift and two others early in the day because of winds but deemed them safe to use before the accident at 10:15 a.m., said Ethan Austin, spokesman for Sugarloaf. The resort said the cable that supports the chairs jumped off track, though the exact cause of the failure is being investigated.
Winds were gusting at 40 mph at the time. The resort said the lift, which went into service in 1975 and recently passed an inspection, was set for upgrades or repairs but declined to specify when. About five chairs fell 25 feet to 30 feet onto a ski trail below, officials said. Rebecca London, one of the skiers who tumbled to the snow, told The Associated Press that her face hit a retaining bar but that her goggles spared her from serious injury. She credited new snow underneath the lift with a soft landing; the resort said it got 20 inches to 22 inches in Monday’s storm. “Thankfully, they didn’t groom it last night, so they left it like it was,” she said. “So the snow was all soft.” Most of the skiers who fell appeared to be stunned but OK, she said, and the ski patrol was on the scene within minutes to treat the injured. London, 20, of Carrabassett Valley, said she wasn’t hurt badly
enough to go to a hospital. Jay Marshall, a ski coach who hunkered down in a cold wind while on a lift next to the broken one, said that his lift was moving but that the broken one was not. There was a “loud snapping noise” after the lift restarted, he said, then some screams. “The next thing I know, it was bouncing up and down like a yo-yo,” said Marshall, of Carrabassett Valley. He said it was too difficult to watch, so he looked away. “It was terrifying,” he said. There could have been as few as 50 people or as many as 160 on the lift at the time, according to Sugarloaf, owned by Boyne Falls, Mich.based Boyne Resorts. Sugarloaf workers used a pulley-like system to lower skiers to safety. Jill Gray, a spokeswoman for Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington, about 45 miles away, said eight adults and children were taken there but did not give details on the injuries. One of the injured was flown on to Maine Medical Center in Portland, she said. It’s unclear whether the accident was wind-related or mechanical.
New first-class stamps are ‘forever’ beginning in January By Douglass K. Daniel The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Rummaging around for 1- and 2-cent postage stamps when postal rates go up is heading the way of the Pony Express. Beginning in January, all new stamps good for 1 ounce of firstclass mail will be marked as “forever.” The move is designed to help customers cope with postage increases, a U.S. Postal Service official told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The official requested anonymity to discuss a policy that hasn’t been announced formally. Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe plans to announce the new policy Jan. 14, the official said. “I think that’s a great idea,” Sean Swilling, a research analyst for commercial property, said inside a downtown Washington post office during a mail run. “For me, a guy who uses snailmail regularly, it’s a hassle to get 1- or 2-cent stamps. Streamline
U.S. Postal Service
A postage stamp honoring jazz appreciation forever. things — that would be perfect.” When the Postal Service unveiled its first-class commemorative stamps for 2011 on Tuesday, all were marked “forever” instead of the current rate of 44 cents. The initial first-class stamp
under the new policy will be the Lunar New Year: Year of the Rabbit stamp, to be issued Jan. 22. It will be followed by stamps commemorating Kansas statehood Jan. 29 and, in February, the centennial of President Ronald Reagan’s birth. The Forever Stamp, first issued in April 2007 and featuring the Liberty Bell, was designed for use regardless of changes in postal rates. They are sold at the prevailing price of 1 ounce of domestic first-class postage. The Postal Service said that 28 billion Forever Stamps have been sold since, generating $12.1 billion in total revenue. The stamps without denominations already account for 85 percent of its stamp program, the service said. The Postal Service sought a 2-cent increase in postage rates for 2011, but the independent Postal Rate Commission rejected the request; the post office is appealing the decision in federal court.

It’s unclear what Abercrombie could do because Hawaii’s privacy laws have long barred the release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who doesn’t have a tangible interest.
IOWA CITY, IOWA, police said a 25-year-old man called 9-1-1 to report a drunken driver: himself. According to the Iowa City PressCitizen, police said Francisco Castro called the emergency number around 8:30 Christmas morning. Officers found Castro sitting in the driver’s seat of a running vehicle. Police said Castro told officers that he called 9-1-1 because he thought he was too drunk to drive. A follow-up test showed his blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit. There is no listed phone number for Castro. Online court records don’t yet list the case or his attorney.
POLICE SAID A dispute over the freshness of french fries got heated at a McDonald’s in Sandusky, Ohio. Authorities said a customer refused fries waiting Sunday night in their serving pouches at the restaurant in northern Ohio. The manager insisted the fries were fresh. Police said they were called when the customer said he wouldn’t leave until he got different fries. He told officers a McDonald’s employee struck him with a mop. No charges were filed. Police said the man got his money back and left without fries.
THE DEVELOPER OF the first modern Palestinian city in the West Bank said about 20 Israeli suppliers will be working on the project — after the companies promised they will not use products or services from Israeli settlements. Bashar Masri, the developer of the Rawabi city project, said Tuesday he tries to use Palestinian suppliers but when necessary has had to turn to Israeli suppliers on condition settlement products aren’t used. Jewish settlers have accused the Israeli suppliers of caving in to an international boycott of businesses connected to the settlements.

Party: Fundraising done through donations, CDs Continued from A1 Olympic Cellars is donating the space, said Shelley Taylor, spokeswoman for the production and the voice of Christine Hale, Cross’ love interest, in the production that tells the tale of a “Sequim Bay boat bum” who “is hired to find a priceless artifact, leading to a deadly chase on the raging seas of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.” Fundraising will be accomplished through soliciting donations and through CD sales, which will allow holders to hear the show before it is broadcast, Taylor said.
Excerpts of show Those at the party also will hear some of the scenes from radio drama, made in the old-time tradition. Grissim, a Dungenessarea resident, plans to present about 30 minutes of excerpts from the show, which has expanded to one hour and 14 minutes. “We’ll center them around dramatic moments that will demonstrate some of the bells and whistles that we’ve been able to achieve but also to showcase our actors,” he said. He’ll talk about work done behind the scenes. Some sound effects can be purchased, Grissim said, but others are handmade.

KSQM plans to expand reach Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — Within three years, nonprofit radio station KSQM 91.5 FM officials and volunteers expect to be heard by a lot more people. Sequim Community Broadcasting received word a week ago that the Federal Communications Commission had granted it a construction permit for a new tower, expanding the station’s reach by increasing its effective radiated power — or ERP — from 700 watts to 2,400 watts, or 2.4 kilowatts. “That’s almost four times larger,” said Jeff Bankston, general manager of the station at 577 W. Washington St. The station now can be heard in Sequim and Dungeness Valley, some parts of Port Angeles and Port Townsend, and has some listeners in Joyce, Bankston said. And that’s just on the North Olympic Peninsula. “Our biggest audience is in Vicso to record 30 seconds of background sound, Grissim beat his chest for about a minute and a half. He was sore afterward, he admitted. The work is an example of the “lengths that a director will go through to get the right sound,” he said. In at least one case, inspiration struck him in his sleep. The crew wanted the sound of a safe-cracker turning the combination. “We wanted a tiny ratchet sound. We couldn’t find it anywhere,” Grissim said. “I woke up in the middle of the night and thought of

The FCC’s construction permit approval gives the station three years to build a new tower. The plans are to replace the present tower at 1776 Atterberry Road with one at least 150 feet tall on Blue Mountain, Bankston said. The addition is expected to cost between $150,000 and $170,000, he said. “It’s an expensive undertaking,” he said. Expansion is a goal of every fundraiser the station has done, Bankston said, but in the future, a fundraiser will be created specifically for the new tower. Station officials also will seek grants. “Given the great generosity of our listeners, I feel certain we will

have this project come in before the deadline,” Bankston said. Once the new tower is erected, “I would imagine that we should go booming into Port Angeles,” Bankston said. “There will probably be very few places where you couldn’t hear us,” he added, though he doesn’t expect the station’s power to reach as far west as Forks. It will have “triple redundancy” in case of power failure, he added. “Because we are an emergency alert service participant, we expect to broadcast through any emergency,” he said. The studio now has emergency power, as does the tower on Atterberry Road. The new tower also will have emergency power available. “If the power goes out” at any one, or even two, of those places, “we will still be able to broadcast,” he said.

dered should the ballot measure fail. “If we don’t pass it, we end up decreasing services,” Sullivan said. “We want transit to be part of our future when it comes to economic issues.” Commissioner Phil Johnson added that he was “happy to hear people bring up the carbon issue” and the acidification of ocean waters linked in part to motor vehicle pollution. Backing up his words, Johnson rode his bicycle to the transit board meeting. County Commissioner John Austin and City Council members George Randels and Catharine Robinson also voiced their strong endorsements of the sales tax increase to benefit transit riders.
The ballot measure would generate about $1.1 million for Jefferson Transit, according to projections. Hanson had originally favored putting the sales tax measure on the November ballot, but the transit board declined to place the measure on the general election ballot because it felt it would compete with Proposition 1, which voters passed Nov. 2 by a 56.3 percent margin.
Proposition 1 The county placed Proposition 1, which raised the sales tax by 0.3 percent to 8.7 percent effective April 1, on the ballot. Sixty percent of the revenue will go toward county programs, with 40 percent to the city of Port Townsend.

PA man sentenced to 3 years for 9 crimes Pleads guilty to all but one By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Cody B. Runnion, 19, has pleaded guilty to nine crimes — but did not admit guilt in one of them, conspiracy to commit the April robbery at Fairmount Grocery — and been sentenced to three years in state prison. Clallam County Superior Court Judge S. Brooke Taylor sentenced Runnion on Monday after the Port Ange-
les man changed his plea from not guilty. Runnion signed a court statement Monday in which he admitted guilt in all of the charges except conspiracy to commit robbery. “I do not admit guilt,” he wrote. “But there is enough evidence to support a finding of guilt; and I want to take advantage of the plea offer.” Hundreds of hours of police work, particularly on
the part of Detective Kevin Spencer, led to the guilty plea, said Port Angeles Deputy Chief of Police Brian Smith. “This case is a who-doneit,” he said. “We didn’t have any information when it started.” Runnion is the third person to plead in the Fairmount case. Nicholas J. Sullivan, 24, of Kingston pleaded guilty to the armed robbery of the Fairmount store. He was sentenced to 65 months in prison and 18 months of probation Oct. 26
for spearheading the robbery. In September, a 16-yearold Port Angeles girl pleaded guilty to being an accomplice. She is not identified because she is a minor. Sullivan entered the store at 1137 U.S. Highway 101 armed with a rifle and demanded the clerk hand over all the money from the cash register. The clerk complied, and the suspect fled. Authorities have not released the amount of money taken. Runnion was arrested on
an unrelated crime July 31. He was charged Aug. 2 with second-degree burglary and third-degree theft in connection with a July 11 burglary at the All Animal Hospital in Port Angeles, in which a safe was stolen. Charges were amended Aug. 13 to include four counts of residential burglary stemming from breakins of homes in the Sequim area July 7, July 29 and July 30. Prosecutors added one count of possession of a controlled substance.
Runnion pleaded not guilty to the charges Aug. 13, Charges were amended again Monday to include another count of seconddegree burglary for alledgedly breaking into Smith’s Jewelry Repair in Port Angeles on July 23 and second-degree conspiracy to commit robbery at the Fairmount State on April 18.

He said that seeing a bear in those parts isn’t necessarily unusual. “We live in an area with lots of bears,” he said. “There are also lots of raccoons and cougars and deer.”

Federal bonus could save youths’ Medicaid coverage The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — Efforts to enroll low-income children in Medicaid coverage have paid off for the state, which has won a $17.6 million federal bonus payment for having cut red tape and streamlined administrative hurdles for families. Advocates hope the justin-time grant, one of 15 announced Monday, could help rescue a related program, which now insures some 27,000 children who don’t qualify for Medicaid because they are not citizens or their parents cannot produce proper documentation for them. That program is now on the chopping block as lawmakers struggle to fill a $4.6 billion shortfall for the next biennium. Gov. Chris Gregoire has proposed ending the program March 1. Because undocumented children don’t qualify for Medicaid, the state spends $59 million per biennium for the program, a small part of a children’s health-
coverage umbrella known as Apple Health for Kids. Apple Health, begun three years ago, combines several different programs, including Medicaid, to insure more than 700,000 children. It is free for those whose families make less than 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level ($36,620 for a family of three), and those at between 200 percent and 300 percent of the poverty level pay small premiums. Jon Gould, deputy director of the Children’s Alliance, an advocacy group, said the grant was in recognition of the state’s success in getting low-income children enrolled in health coverage.
Undocumented kids How the money will be spent is not yet known because it’s unrestricted, meaning it could be taken by lawmakers to plug gaps in other areas. But Gould hopes it will be used to continue the program for undocu-
mented children. “All children in the state should have health coverage, regardless of where they are born,” he said. “It’s not just the right thing to do; it’s the smart thing to do. Preventive health care avoids emergency visits” and other costly care. Cassie Sauer, spokeswoman for the Washington State Hospital Association, said: “The additional money should be safeguarded to preserve insurance for all Washington’s children, not diverted to fill the general budget hole.” Dr. Beth Harvey, president of the state chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, noted that many families have had a hard time keeping health insurance during the economic downturn. “Apple Health for Kids protects children by providing access to preventive health care, immunization and sick care with their usual medical provider,
before they require expensive ER or hospital care,” she said in a statement released by the Children’s Alliance. In all, the grants totaled more than $206 million. Alabama was the top grantgetter, with nearly $55 million. The grants went to states that enrolled more currently eligible children, not by expanding eligibility levels. According to the alliance, the latest Washington State Population Survey showed that the number of uninsured children statewide has dropped in the last two years from 4.6 percent to 3.4 percent, despite the tough economy. Washington enrolled 74,815 children more than in the previous year, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, but about 75,000 children in the state remain uninsured. Many are eligible, the state believes, but their parents don’t realize it.

Attorney general aiming to cut lawsuit payouts The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — As Washington’s budget woes compound, Attorney General Rob McKenna is making suggestions for how the state might reduce what it spends in legal judgments and settlements. Washington paid more than $50 million in such costs in 2009. McKenna said that’s between four and 12 times as much as comparably sized states, including Massachusetts, Arizona, Tennessee and Indiana. The issue has long bothered McKenna, a two-term Republican. He said legislators in the upcoming session could cap state damages, limit acts for which the state is liable or tie the state’s share of payouts to the state’s share of blame. “Our liability ought to be in line with other states. Even if we adopted a sys-
tem like Massachusetts has or Oregon has, we’d be better off,” McKenna told The Olympian newpaper’s editorial board Monday. Those two states have some limits on liability payouts.
Resistance expected His efforts are sure to meet resistance, especially from trial lawyers who are important Democratic donors. Larry Shannon, with the state’s trial attorney lobby, told Seattle NPR station KUOW for a story last week that he disagrees that Washington is too exposed to liability. The state’s taxpayers should be proud of its willingness to take responsibility when its mistakes hurt innocent people, he said. “These are real people going about their lives and have them destroyed and
shattered by incidents that could have fully been prevented,” Shannon said. And, he argued, savings from cutting such payouts are illusory because without them, victims of such cases are likely to wind up needing public assistance. McKenna said he agrees that the state should pay for damages when it is negligent and harms the public. But he also said the state unfairly pays out too much in cases where it’s partly to blame and simply is the party with deep financial pockets.

Joe married Patricia Kelly, a Port Angeles native, in 1979 and had two children, Jared and wife, Naomi, of Seattle and Shalem of Chicago. They spent their summers hiking and camping all over Olympic National Park. He enjoyed his in-laws, Lucille and Elmer Kelly, and many other fine friends in Port Angeles. He worked with Duncan McKiernan in his foundry one summer. Joe loved nature, photography, cutting wood, his violin, making Christmas cards, feeding people, being in the woods and going to his cabin at the Place Beach. Joseph was born in 1936 in Marseille, France, to Gabriel and Shalem Jonas and lived there with his parents and nine siblings during World War II. His favorite childhood memories included drawing and painting with
Mr. Jonas paints he made with natural materials, climbing trees and having the kind American troops share food with the hungry children. At age 14, he came to the U.S. by himself and settled with his older siblings in Chicago. Eventually the whole family settled in Spokane, Washington, where he helped support his family by working in the commercial arts field. He put himself through college and received his Master’s in Art. He began his career as an educator and soon became an art instructor at North Idaho

College, where he founded the Commercial Program in 1977. He taught there for over 20 years until health problems forced him to retire. He continued his painting and sculptures, many of which can be seen at the North Idaho College campus, Hayden Lake Country Club, Painter’s Chair Gallery, Shriners Hospital in Spokane and the entrance to the Coeur d’Alene Resort. He received many artists’ distinctions, including the Mayors Awards for the Arts and a Nomination for the Idaho Governors Award in the Arts. Survivors include Mia, Zyah and Aaron Jonas; two brothers; five sisters; and many nieces and nephews. The celebration of Joe’s life was held December 16, 2010, at North Idaho College.

in effect defining a “standard of care” that could help clarify duties for state workers. Another is a sort of nofault fund that could be used to help those who are damaged in child-protection cases. The state recently settled one case for $8 million, involving a cyclist who was left paralyzed when his tire became stuck in the deck of Seattle’s Montlake Bridge. In another, the state had to share in a $30 million payout in a case where a
motorist was left paralyzed when another vehicle rearended his in a construction zone along Interstate 5 in Seattle. A traffic-flow meter had stopped the first vehicle, and both the contractor and second motorist were sued. The insurer wanted to go to trial, and the state ended up paying a share of damages. McKenna said the theory was that the state shared blame because a nearby overpass cast a shadow over the accident area.

Peninsula Daily News for Wednesday, December 29, 2010
Resolving to resolve in the New Year By now I think we’ve all had it up to here with know-itall, drive-by, lap-dog, cookie-cutter newspaper columnists preaching imaginary New Year’s resolutions they have no Pat intention of keeping them- Neal selves. As a wilderness gossip columnist, I have always strived to provide a shining beacon to humanity in a sincere effort to help others. Helping others is one of the more popular New Year’s resolutions. That must be why last year I volunteered to be a marmot surveyor in Olympic National Park. The Olympic marmots are unique little varmints whose numbers could be depressed.
If the marmots are depressed, they could be endangered. And if they are endangered, why, that’s like winning the Endangered Species lottery. Untold millions will be spent studying the problem. Maybe some of my marmot survey methods were a little extreme, but the hindsight of a Monday morning quarterback is always 20/20. I know now that shocking the marmots out of their holes was not a good idea. They don’t make extension cords that long, but how else was I supposed to get the marmots out in the open to count them? Someone said I should pipe rap music into the marmot holes to flush them out. That didn’t work, either. Shooting the marmots with paintballs was not a good idea, but one marmot looks pretty much like another.
How else could I keep from counting the same marmot twice? So forget about helping others. It’s just another road-to-nowhere, dead-end resolution that will only make you feel used. Ditto learning new things. You know what that famous French philosopher, “What’s His Name,” said about learning new things: “Knowledge is like a sphere. The larger it grows, the more it touches the unknown.” I knew learning new things was a waste of time when I tried to read the fishing laws. You have no idea how hard it was to translate 146 pages of the Washington state fishing laws into English. This was a monumental task. For example, the Hoh River is divided into six different regulatory zones, each with a different season and limit. This, on a river that is only 50 miles long! After a year of research, I was finally able to translate the fish-
ing regulations into a language a normal person could understand. Translating a code this complex required an intense computer analysis that identified word patterns. These words were then reduced to their elemental linguistic rootstock. Using this computer model, I was able to translate 146 pages of modern fishing laws into a single page that contained only one word: “NO!” Sometimes, learning new things will only make you feel stupid. Getting organized is another New Year’s resolution you hear a lot about. Don’t bother. Last year, I was going to organize my tackle box. No more wasted days with fishing lures that didn’t work. I was going to organize my tackle box to the point where I only carried fishing lures that would catch fish. Before I could organize my
Our readers’ letters, faxes
tackle box, I had to find it somewhere in my extensive tackle box collection. One man’s tackle box collection is another’s hoarding disorder. I know that now but my fishing lures are like my best friends. It makes me very sad to lose one. Organizing my tackle box meant I might throw a lure away that might catch a fish some day. The fact is that most New Year’s resolutions leave you feeling useless, ignorant and demented. I say if it ain’t fixed, don’t break it. This year, my New Year’s resolution is to try to write good. Have a happy New Year.

needs-expansion of Social Security, broadened coverage in unemployment insurance, improved housing and better health protection for all our people.” The platform also pledged continuously vigorous enforcement of antitrust laws; legislation to enable closer federal scrutiny of mergers which have
a significant or potential monopolistic connotations; procedural changes in the antitrust laws to facilitate their enforcement; continual study of additional ways to correct inequities in the effect of various taxes; provide assistance to improve the economic conditions of areas faced with persistent and substantial unemploy-
ment; revise and improve the Taft-Hartley Act so as to protect more effectively the rights of labor unions, management, the individual worker and the public. The Republican Party believes that the physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing of the people is as important as their economic health, stating principles that are neither partisan nor prejudiced, but warmly American. America does not prosper unless all American prosper, and government must have a heart as well as a head. In 1956, the top marginal tax rate on the wealthy was more than 90 percent, and we had the highest employment, wages and standard of living! I can see common ground with other political parties in this 18-page document. Can it be used as a starting point to work together? Eisenhower Republicans, please take back your party.

The best magazine essays of the year The Sidney Awards go to some of the best magazine essays of the year. Named after New York David writer and thinker Sidney Brooks Hook, the oneman jury (me) is biased against political essays, since politics already gets so much coverage. But the jury is biased in favor of pieces that illuminate the ideas and conditions undergirding political events. For example, there’s been a lot of talk this year about trying to reduce corruption in Afghanistan, Iraq and across the Middle East. But in a piece in The American Interest called “Understanding Corruption,” Lawrence Rosen asks: What does corruption mean? For Westerners, it means one set of things — bribery and nepotism, etc. But when Rosen asks people in the Middle East what corruption is, he gets variations on an entirely different meaning: “Corruption is the failure to share any largess you have
received with those with whom you have formed ties of dependence.” Our view of corruption makes sense in a nation of laws and impersonal institutions. But Rosen explains: “Theirs is a world in which the defining feature of a man is that he has formed a web of indebtedness, a network of obligations that prove his capacity to maneuver in a world of relentless uncertainty.” So to not give a job to a cousin is corrupt; to not do deals with tribesmen is corrupt. Reducing corruption in Afghanistan is not a question of replacing President Hamid Karzai with a more honest man. It’s a deeper process. In earlier ages, people consulted oracles. We consult studies. We rely on scientific findings to guide health care decisions, policy making and much else. But in an essay called “The Truth Wears Off” in The New Yorker, Jonah Lehrer reports on something strange. He describes a class of antipsychotic drugs, whose effectiveness was demonstrated by several large clinical trials. But in a subsequent batch of studies, the therapeutic power of the drugs appeared to wane precipitously.

This is not an isolated case. “But now all sorts of wellestablished, multiply confirmed findings have started to look increasingly uncertain,” Lehrer writes. “It’s as if our facts were losing their truth: claims that have been enshrined in textbooks are suddenly unprovable.” The world is fluid. Bias and randomness can creep in from all directions. For example, between 1966 and 1995, there were 47 acupuncture studies conducted in Japan, Taiwan and China, and they all found it to be an effective therapy. There were 94 studies in the U.S., Sweden and Britain, and only 56 percent showed benefits. The lesson is not to throw out studies, but to never underestimate the complexity of the world around. There’s been a lot written about Detroit, but Charlie LeDuff’s essay, “Who Killed Aiyana Stanley-Jones,” in Mother Jones packs a special power. It starts with a killing of a little girl in a police raid, then pulls back to the idiotic murder of a teenage boy that precipitated the raid — that murder victim may have smirked at his killer for riding a moped. Then LeDuff touches on the
decay all around — a city in which 80 percent of the eighthgraders are unable to do basic math, the crime lab was closed because of ineptitude, 500 fires are set every month and 50 percent of the drivers are operating without a license. LeDuff, a former reporter for The New York Times, travels from broad context to the specific details — from the collapse of the industrial economy to the fact that a local minister was left with the girl’s $4,000 funeral costs, claiming the girl’s father ran off with the donations. In an essay in Foreign Affairs called “The Demographic Future,” Nicholas Eberstadt describes the coming global manpower decline. Over the next two decades, for example, there will be a 30 percent decline in the number of Chinese between the ages of 15 and 29 — 100 million fewer workers. Tyler Cowen wrote a superb, counterintuitive piece on income inequality for The American Interest called “The Inequality That Matters.” It’s filled with interesting observations. For example, the inequality that really bites is local — the guy down the street who can spend three bucks more for a

case of beer, not Bill Gates’ billions across the country. But his main insight is this: Smart people, especially in the financial sector, now have tremendous incentives to take great risks. If the risks fail, they still have millions in the bank. If the risks pay off, they get enormously rich. The result is a society with more inequality and more financial instability. It’s not clear we know how to address this phenomenon. Finally, two historical essays deserve mention. Adam Gopnik wrote a fresh piece on Winston Churchill for The New Yorker called “Finest Hours.” Anne Applebaum wrote a chilling essay on central Europe in the 20th century called “The Worst of the Madness” in The New York Review of Books.

PA affirms Nippon permit appeal decision By Paul Gottlieb
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — The City Council affirmed Tuesday its Dec. 6 decision supporting a permit for a $71 million biomass cogeneration project by unanimously approving written findings of fact and conclusions of law. The Port Angeles City Council considered the written document at an eightminute special meeting. The council had voted 5-1 on Dec. 6, with council member Max Mania dissenting, to uphold the Planning Commission’s Sept. 21 decision to grant Nippon Paper Industries USA a shoreline substantial development permit for the biomass project. Seven environmental groups had appealed the commission’s decision to the City Council. The groups were Port Townsend AirWatchers, Olympic Forest Coalition, Olympic Environmental Council, No Biomass
Burn of Seattle, the Center for Environmental Law and Policy of Spokane, the World Temperate Rainforest Network and the Cascade Chapter of the Sierra Club. The Nippon project would upgrade an existing biomass boiler. It would double the amount of wood waste burned to produce steam to make telephone book paper and newsprint. It also would generate up to 20 megawatts of electrical power. The company then could sell credits for the electrical power.

The appellants had said that the project should have been evaluated as an electrical utility, meaning it would have needed a more rigorous shoreline conditional-use permit.

In doing so, Mania questioned Finding 18, which asserted “the Planning Commission was fully advised on the relevant facts and issues, and that its decision was supported by substantial evidence on the record.” But Perry had a different take. “I’m quite happy with it,” he said of the 11-page document. Di Guilio echoed Perry’s assessment of the findings and conclusions. “I feel that they accurately portray what took place that evening and what the council did,” Di Guilio said. Diana Somerville, who represents the groups that appealed the Planning Commission’s decision, said in an interview that project opponents are still mulling an appeal of the City Council’s decision. “We haven’t given up,” Somerville said. No public comment was
taken at the meeting, but Somerville submitted a 1½-page statement to the City Council calling for the enactment of a moratorium “on Nippon’s proposed incinerator” for a minimum of one year. “Port Angeles has spent more time and efforts to get public comment on new signage downtown than on informing citizens about a $70-plus-million-dollar project that threatens our personal health and the longterm health of our environment for decades to come,” the statement said.

Looking back on eventful 2010 IT’S TIME TO put the 2010 golf season in the golf cart’s rearview mirror. Most golf carts don’t have Michael rearview mirCarman rors, but I ask you to bear with me. With a new year looming, the days are slowly getting longer and at some point in the next few months myself and all the other working duffers will actually have some light to play in after quitting time. The ability of Western Washington to host successful major USGA golf events, all in a three-week span, stands out as the most memorable golf event of the past year. I’ll have more on that when my yearly golf recap hits the months of July and August.

Dawgs open Pac-10 play Washington hits road with game against USC By Tim Booth
The Associated Press
SEATTLE — For a team with just one true road game during its entire non-conference schedule, Washington is beginning its quest as the preseason favorite in the Pac-10 with arguably its toughest road trip. It’s against a team it couldn’t figure out last season. Washington begins Pac-10 play on tonight at Southern California — not only as the class of the Pac-10 but also the target for everyone else in a conference lacking ranked teams. Washington was the preseason favorite in the conference for the first time. Its 8-3 mark during its nonconference schedule has done little to dissuade the belief the Huskies are the best in the league, even if their record lacks marquee wins. The Huskies seven home wins came by an average of 30.9 points, Washington’s largest margin for home non-conference games since 1947-48. Their closest victory was a 22-point win over Portland. The Huskies start conference play as the second-highest scoring team in the country, trailing
only VMI. “The real season starts now. It’s like a brand new season,” Washington guard Isaiah Thomas said. “Everybody is 0-0. You don’t really care about your non-conference now. You have to be ready.” The upcoming two-step in Los Angeles — the Huskies play at UCLA on Friday — will be the first time coach Lorenzo Romar’s team faces hostile environments in consecutive games this season. Spending a week on Maui and playing on a neutral floor doesn’t count, even if the competition Washington faced included two ranked teams. The Huskies lost to No. 11 Kentucky and No. 20 Michigan State. But Washington’s only game in an opponent’s arena came just a few weeks ago at No. 18 Texas A&M. The Huskies were held to a season-low in points and lost 63-62 when Thomas forced a game-winning attempt at the The Associated Press buzzer and was blocked. It’s a debate Romar’s been Washington head coach Lorenzo Romar talks with a player in a game against Texas Tech on Dec. 4 in questioned on before. Turn
Seattle. The Huskies open Pac-10 play starting today in southern California against USC and UCLA.
January The PGA Tour, European Tour and other top level tour players began to use “Condition of Competition” clubs that conformed to the United States Golf Association’s golf club groove rule. That meant that the limits on grooves on all clubs, excluding drivers and putters, have been reduced and they will become shallower and narrower. Non-pros, unless specified otherwise, can use clubs with the current non-conforming grooves until 2024.
February On February 19, Tiger Woods delivered a televised speech in which he admitted he had been unfaithful to his wife. Without taking questions, Woods told the assembled in the studio and a national television audience that he used to believe he was entitled to do whatever he wanted to do, and that, due to his success, normal rules did not apply to him. By the end of 2010, Woods marriage will have come to an end and he will have lost Gatorade, AT&T, Accenture and Gillette as major sponsors.

State qualifiers from the North Olympic Peninsula included Port Angeles golfers Jordan Negus and Garrett Payton; Sequim’s Ryan O’Mera, Steven Loerlein and Mallory Maloney; Port Townsend’s Ronnie Harrell, Cody Piper, Sean Anderson and Gabe Hensley; and Chimacum’s Mason Moug and Eric Nelson on the boys side. Port Angeles girls Tracie DuPuis, Ev Grier and Emily Cook made the Class 3A state tournament, Sequim’s Zoei Zbaraschuk, Kim Duce and Hailey Estes made the 2A tourney and Port Townsend’s Jenny Grauberger and Alexa Russell qualified for the 1A competition. The best finishes were turned in by Port Townsend’s Harrell and Sequim’s Zbaraschuk, each finishing fifth in their respective tournaments. Grauberger was sixth for the Port Townsend girls and Chimacum’s Nelson placed seventh in the 1A boys tournament. Chimacum finished in fourth place as a team and Port Townsend was sixth in 1A.

Pirates open with victory Peninsula Daily News
OREGON CITY, Ore. — The Peninsula College men’s basketball team overcame a chilly first half to drop Blue Mountain 86-75 in the first round of the Clackamas Tournament on Tuesday. The Pirates, who shot only 21 percent from the floor and managed only one 3-pointer in six attempts, found themselves trailing by 12 at halftime. Peninsula then lit it up for a 58 percent shooting clip in the second half and drained 9-of-15 treys to win going away. Mitrell Clark led Penin-
Clackamas Tournament sula with 25 points, six assists and four steals while Sammeon Waller canned 19 points. Four players scored in double figures as Thad Vinson sank 15 and DeShaun Freeman added 12 points and eight rebounds. Anthony Williams contributed nine boards. The Pirates will play the winner of Tuesday’s Clackamas vs. Yakima game in the tournament semifinal tonight at 7.

Vikings smash Eagles 24-14 The Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA — Considering everything else the Minnesota Vikings have endured this season, it was silly to think two extra days sitting around a hotel room would bring ’em down. No way a determined rookie quarterback named Joe Webb was going to let that happen. Webb threw for 195 yards and ran for a touchdown in his first career start filling in for an injured Brett Favre, and the lowly Vikings stunned Michael Vick and the NFC East champion Philadelphia Eagles 24-14 in the NFL’s first Tuesday game since 1946. “It was a big win, especially with what we have gone through,” Webb said. “It was a long trip for us and to get a win against the Eagles, we are trying to fin-
ish the season on a high note.” Adrian Peterson ran for 118 yards and a score, helping the 14-point underdogs knock Philadelphia out of contention for a first-round playoff bye. The Eagles (10-5) could’ve secured a firstround bye with a victory over the Vikings (6-9) and Dallas and with a loss by either Chicago or Atlanta next week. “We don’t deserve it after that performance,” Eagles coach Andy Reid said. “Every phase was terrible. We didn’t coach well enough. We didn’t play well enough. I’m disappointed in myself. It’s embarrassing.” Now the Eagles are locked into the NFC’s No. 3 seed and will host the No. 6 seed on Jan. 8 or 9. Their final game against the Cowboys is meaningless
in the standings, so it’s likely Vick and most of the starters will rest. Two days after a winter storm forced a postponement, there wasn’t even a snowflake visible at the Linc. The game was switched from Sunday because of a howling storm that dumped about a foot of snow in the area — perhaps a good idea considering Philadelphia’s history of snowball-throwing fans. But 42 years after fans got a bum rap for tossing snowballs at Santa — the man in the costume said it was playful pelting — the Eagles said snowballs didn’t factor in the decision to move the game. “There were a lot of issues considered, but that was absolutely not among them,” said Pamela Browner White, the Eagles senior
vice president of public affairs and government relations. Nine days after rallying from a 21-point deficit in the final 7:18 to beat the New York Giants on DeSean Jackson’s 65-yard punt return on the final play, there would be no miracle at the Linc for the Eagles. Fans started leaving before the two-minute warning. The Vikings looked more like a team with a lot at stake rather than a group that’s ready to start a vacation. The win could help interim coach Leslie Frazier get the job permanently. “It was a great effort by our players to battle the way that they had to all week and they showed perseverance that has become the hallmark of our team over the last few weeks,” Frazier said.

Dustin Johnson held a one-shot lead entering the 72nd hole. He faltered and bogeyed the hole, which put him into a three-hole playoff with Bubba Watson and Martin Kaymer. But it was determined that Johnson had ground his club in a bunker, giving him a tie for fifth place and touching off controversy over what exactly constituted a bunker on the sand-strewn course. Kaymer went on to win the tourney in a playoff. Johnson gained a lot of fans for his humility afterward, and I think his game is set up well to win a major tournament.

September Men’s and women’s club champions were crowned across the North Olympic Peninsula in 2010. Champions included: ■ Port Ludlow: Bonnie Vahcic and Pete Smith. ■ Peninsula: Dolly Burnett and Mark Mitrovich. ■ Cedars at Dungeness: Pat Schumacher (women’s); Sid Krumpe (men’s); Tim Trosin (senior’s). Schumacher has won the club championship 19 times since 1986 and Krumpe has 14 titles since 1988. Bragging rights indeed! ■ Discovery Bay: Roy Sutherland.
October The European Ryder Cup team withstood a furious late charge by the U.S. to win the 38th Ryder Cup competition 14.5 to 13.5. Europe might have won but their lead may have awoken the sleeping competitor in American Rickie Fowler. More known for his awful, awful haircut and his curious clothing choices,
Fowler rallied from four holes down through 12 to give the U.S. hope of an improbable comeback. That comeback didn’t happen but he did end winning PGA Tour Rookie of the Year in 2010, and I’d put some coin on this kid to win his first PGA Tour tournament in 2011. I’ve also got a feeling he will soon move on the cover of the PGA Tour’s video game in the coming years as Tiger Woods is slowly moved out of the picture. Just get a haircut. Please.
November Yani Tseng of Taiwan won the LPGA’s Mathematically-devised LPGA Player of the Year award. I can see the arguments for giving the award to Ai Miyazato of Japan, who won five times in 2010, but Tseng won three times, including two major championships. Hard to argue with giving the award to the player who played the best when it mattered most.
December USGA Executive Director David Fay 60, retired after leading the organization for the past two decades. Fay’s lasting legacy will likely focus on his decision to bring the U.S. Open to affordable public courses, including New York state’s Bethpage State Park’s Black Course on Long Island in 2002 and 2009, and the city of San Diego’s Torrey Pines in 2008. Washington residents will also benefit from his decision-making, as Pierce County’s Chambers Bay will host the U.S. Open in 2015. Let the countdown begin!

Sequim, which lost only its second game of the year, trailed 29-20 at halftime to the 2A Cruisers but came back in the second half, almost drawing even at 52-51 in the fourth quarter before running out of gas. “We did not shoot the ball well in the first half,” Sequim coach Greg Glasser said. “We came out cold. “Our kids battled but we were showing a little bit of rust.” The Wolves are 8-2 overall and 5-1 in the Olympic League. Corbin Webb led the Wolves with 13 points while Jayson Brocklesby and Nick Camporini were right behind with 12 each. Gabe Carter sank nine points and added six assists and four rebounds while Brocklesby also grabbed four rebounds. Eatonville 58, Sequim 51 Eatonville Sequim

Where are the jobs? For many companies, the hiring is overseas By Pallavi Gogoi
in the U.S. Caterpillar stock is up 64 percent this year. “There is a shift in economic power that’s going on and will continue. China just became the world’s second-largest economy,” said David Wyss, chief economist at Standard & Poor’s, who notes that half of the revenue for companies in the S&P 500 in the last couple of years has come from outside the U.S.
The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Corporate profits are up. Stock prices are up. So why isn’t anyone hiring? Actually, many American companies are — just maybe not in your town. They’re hiring overseas, where sales are surging and the pipeline of orders is fat. More than half of the 15,000 people that Caterpillar Inc. has hired this year were outside the U.S. UPS is also hiring at a faster clip overseas. For both companies, sales in international markets are growing at least twice as fast as domestically. The trend helps explain why unemployment remains high in the United States, edging up to 9.8 percent last month, even though companies are performing well. All but 4 percent of the top 500 U.S. corporations reported profits this year, and the stock market is close to its highest point since the 2008 financial meltdown. But the jobs are going elsewhere. The Economic Policy Institute, a Washington think tank, said American companies have created 1.4 million jobs overseas this year, compared with less than 1 million in the U.S. The additional 1.4 million jobs would have lowered the U.S. unemployment rate to 8.9 percent, said Robert Scott, the institute’s senior international economist. “There’s a huge difference between what is good for American companies

Natural gas-fired plant advances The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — Owners of a natural gas-fired power plant in Grays Harbor County are one step closer to expanding production. A state panel recommended to Gov. Chris Gregoire last week that Chicago-based Invenergy LLC be allowed to go forward with the $400 million project. The governor has 60 days to make a decision. Invenergy wants to add two combustion-turbine generators and a single steam generator to double
production at its power plant in Satsop. The expansion could generate enough electricity to power about 1 million homes. Invenergy business development director Brent Oakleaf said Monday there’s no timetable for when the expansion would begin. He said in an interview earlier this year it may be a year to 10 years before the company starts work on the expansion. The state’s Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council concluded the project would
provide the region with significant energy benefits while having minimal effects on surrounding land, wildlife and aquatic life. But some of the 30 or so residents who live near the project have worried about noise from the existing and expanded plant. Oakleaf said the company will install additional acoustic walls and silencers in the existing plant and the proposed expansion. The company also has the air and water quality permits needed to operate. Duke Energy Corp.
started construction of the gas-fired Satsop plant but pulled the plug on the project in 2002. Invenergy bought the project in 2005 for $210 million and completed it. Nancy Hirsh, policy director of the NW Energy Coalition, said high-efficiency gas power plants such as Satsop generate roughly one-half to onethird of the greenhouse gas emissions of a coal plant. “There is some need for more natural gas plants as coal plants go down,” she has said.

OLYMPIA — Cowlitz County did not go far enough in evaluating greenhouse gas emissions from a proposed port upgrade in Longview, according to the state Department of Ecology. The redeveloped port would export coal to Asia. Ecology officials Tuesday filed a motion to intervene in an appeal of the county’s decision to allow the upgrade, saying the department wants to ensure its concerns are adequately addressed. The officials said the county’s environmental review should have analyzed greenhouse gas emissions more broadly and not just in the immediate boundaries of the Longview project. In November, Cowlitz County approved shoreline permits for a subsidiary of Australia-based Ambre Energy to redevelop an existing port to handle 5 million tons of coal annually. The project would serve mines in Montana and Wyoming. Conservation groups have also appealed the project to the state Shorelines Hearings Board. A hearing is set for April.

Fisheries told to get tougher on sea lions The Associated Press
SEATTLE — A group advising the federal fisheries service says a program to remove or kill sea lions that eat imperiled salmon near Bonneville Dam hasn’t been effective at saving the fish. In its three-year review, the group made up of fishermen, tribes, state agencies and others urged the National Marine Fisheries Service to ease rules so more California sea lions can be trapped, removed or shot from land and boat. The report comes as the federal agency is deciding whether to appeal a court decision last month that
halted the program. In 2008, the federal government allowed Oregon, Washington and Idaho to kill the hungriest of the sea lions that preyed on salmon and steelhead at the base of the dam east of Portland, Ore. So far, 27 sea lions have been killed, while 10 were relocated to zoos or aquariums. The fisheries service gave the states permission to kill up to 85 a year until 2012. The Humane Society of the United States had challenged that decision, and the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in November
that the federal government failed to explain why it let state officials kill sea lions, while humans are allowed to take comparable or larger catches of endangered salmon and steelhead. The agency has until early January to decide whether to appeal or take other action, Garth Griffin, branch chief of the fisheries service’s protected resources division in Portland, said Tuesday.
More must go In its review, the task force said the current program was able to reduce the sea lions’ take of endangered salmon to between
2 percent and 3 percent, down from 4 percent in 2004, according to 2010 estimates. But the program goal was less than 1 percent. “More animals must be trapped in order to be removed,” the group said. It recommended more traps and more staff available to work the traps seven days a week. A majority of the group also recommended that more sea lions should be shot from land and boat and that areas where the animals could be hauled out and shot should be increased. None of the 27 animals

Wanting her children, Marticia, 2, and William, 4, to grow up with a better home life than she had, Victoria Zmuda turned to OlyCAP and the Peninsula Daily News’ Peninsula Home Fund.
Home Fund helps young mother of two By Karen Griffiths
For Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — V is for vital, for victory and for Victoria Zmuda. The 20-year-old mother has chosen not to be owned by her past but to create a healthier future for herself, her family and, she says, any of those she can help in the future. In the beginning, Victoria’s road to independence was rocky, and she made many mistakes — but she says people showed her great kindness and never gave up on her. “It’s really nice to have positive people to look to as an example and to help guide me as to what I need to learn and do to get on my feet,” she says. Now, she says, she’s proud to be known as the “Go-to Girl” for other teens in need. “So many kids aren’t aware of all the programs out there to help,” says Victoria. “I like to be a resource they can approach and ask where to get help.” Pregnant at 16, she dropped out of high school and tried to make a life with the baby’s father. But both were too young, and the pressure pushed them apart. She sought help at OlyCAP’s Port Angeles office where she was referred to the First Step Family Support Center, an organization she says changed her life forever. OlyCAP is the nonprofit Olympic Community Action Programs, the No. 1 emergency care agency in Jefferson and Clallam counties. It also screens the applicants for the Peninsula Daily News’ “hand up, not a handout” Peninsula Home Fund and distributes the funds. “Growing up, I never had a responsible adult tell me I needed to learn to get up on my feet, become independent and learn to give help back to others,” says the mother of two, William, 4, and Marticia, 2. “Now, I’m a big activist for First Step. Last year, I helped them raise $18,000 just by talking.”
Helped by Home Fund Since 1971, First Step Family Support Center, an award-winning nonprofit at 325 E. Sixth St. in Port Angeles, has provided support and education services to encourage the healthy development of families in Clallam County. As a guest auctioneer at a fundraiser for First Step last year, Victoria helped raise more than $12,000. More than $5,000 was raised when she spoke at other meetings. “When people started donating just because I was talking, I started bawling my eyes out I was so happy. “After that, I started to feel everything in my life coming into place.” The Peninsula Daily News’

Box 1330, Port Angeles, WA 98362. Or drop them at the newspaper’s offices in Port Townsend, Sequim or Port Home Fund supported her as she began moving toward self-sufficiency, providing bus passes and fuel vouchers to help her get to work and deliver her children to day care. Other organizations have further aided Victoria on her road toward her goal of self-sufficiency and providing her children with the stable family life she experienced before her father died when she was 7. She received assistance from Serenity House’s Evergreen Family Village transitional housing programs. She was also accepted into OlyCAP’s community jobs program. It provides on-the-job training in conjunction with the state Department of Social and Health Services. Subsequently, she got hired at Family Planning of Clallam County as an administrative assistant. “Family Planning opened my eyes to nonprofits,” says Victoria, adding, not only did she get a job, but she also learned the importance of giving to charity. Now she feels it’s a privilege, not even a burden or sacrifice, but a privilege to help others. “I feel good helping raise money for these programs.”
Peninsula College Victoria is spreading her wings. She now works for an accounting firm. She is leaving Serenity House’s transitional housing and, thanks to a federal program, is moving in to her own home. She earned her GED certificate in August and plans to begin classes soon at Peninsula College.

No deductions — a ‘hand up’ The PDN’s Peninsula Home Fund — a safety net for local residents when there is nowhere else to turn — is seeking contributions for its annual holiday season fundraising 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. All the money collected for the Home Fund goes — without any deductions — for hot meals for seniors, meeting rent, energy and transportation needs, 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 . . . Begun in 1989, the Home 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. Since Jan. 1, the Home Fund has helped more than 2,200 individuals and families like Victoria Zmuda’s on the North Olympic Peninsula.
Money almost gone The last of the money collected in 2009 is expected to be exhausted this week. Peninsula Home Fund is a unique, nonprofit program: ■ 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. ■ Some people call the PDN’s Peninsula Home Fund “shoestring philanthropy.” Money from the Home Fund is usually given out in small amounts, normally up to $150. And assistance is limited to one time in a12-month period. But even though the dollar figures are small, the impact can be big, in huge, life-changing ways. ■ 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. And, as necessary, Peninsula Home Fund contributions are often used in conjunction with
money from other agencies, enabling OlyCAP to stretch the value of the contribution. ■ 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.
Applying for a grant To apply for a grant from the fund, phone OlyCAP at 360-4524726 (Port Angeles and Sequim) or 360-385-2571 (Jefferson County). There’s also an OlyCAP office in Forks — 360-374-6193. If you have any questions about the fund, contact John Brewer, Peninsula Daily News editor and publisher, at 360-4173500. Or e-mail him at john.brewer@ peninsuladailynews.com. Peninsula Daily News publishes stories every Sunday and Wednesday during the fund-raising campaign listing contributors and reporting on how the fund works.

Fun ’n’ Advice

Grandparents too busy to handle kids
DEAR ABBY: I moved from New Jersey to Florida 20 years ago, married my wife and started a family. My parents relocated here a few years later. When I asked if they would be living nearby, I was told, “No way! We raised our kids already.” Hearing it felt hurtful. As time has passed, they have made themselves available to a family who lives near them for baby-sitting and help running their business when the family is on vacation. We have asked my parents on several occasions if we could have some help watching our children, but they said they were too busy or it was too much to handle. We feel we should take priority over “outsiders.” But when we bring up the subject, it is met with strong opposition. We just feel like we’re not good enough, and don’t know how to answer our children when they ask about their grandparents. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Bewildered in Florida
For Better or For Worse
Dear Bewildered: Your situation is sad, but my advice is to accept that you won’t be getting any help from — or becoming any closer to — your parents. They may have refused your requests for help because they don’t care for your spouse, or your children really are too much for them to handle. I’m sorry.
Frank & Ernest
Dear Abby: I lost my 84-year-old mother in an accident. I called Mom’s friends, many of whom are also elderly. Several of them talked on and on about their problems, their poor health, their spouses’ poor health — and one even went on and on about her hot water tank “blowing up.” Would you please remind people that when they get a courtesy call from a grieving family member to please listen, say, “Thank you for calling to let me know,” and to offer condolences for their loss. Bereaved Daughter, Livonia, N.Y.
Dear Bereaved Daughter: Allow me to offer my condolences for the loss of your mother. I’m pleased to print your letter because not everyone
knows how to handle a phone call Van Buren such as you had to make. It’s possible that the folks you called were either uncomfortable with the subject, and so they tried to deflect it by discussing what was going on in their lives — or they have heard about death so often at their age that they have become accustomed to hearing such sad news. (As for the woman who mentioned her water heater — I hope you were kind enough to refer her to a plumber.)
Dear Abby: My husband travels a lot — three to four days a week. Sometimes when he’s intoxicated and we’re having sex, he acts like he doesn’t know who I am. I asked him once, “Are you married?” He said, “No . . .” Another time I asked, “Do you have a girlfriend?” and he said, “No, but you’re fine . . .” The next day, he has no idea he said any of this. Should I be worried? Wrong Answer in Chicago Dear Wrong Answer: Absolutely. You should be worried not only about the fact that your husband is probably having extracurricular sex, but also that he has a drinking problem so severe he doesn’t always know who he’s sleeping with. You should be worried that after a night of drinking, he can’t remember clearly the next day what he has said (or has possibly done). If he won’t admit he has a problem and seek help, you should contact AlAnon (it’s in your phone book, or find it online at www.al-anon.org). And you should schedule an appointment with your physician to be tested for STDs because I’m worried he may have given you one — or more.

The Last Word in Astrology By Eugenia Last
ARIES (March 21-April 19): You need time to rethink your strategy for the new year. Hanging on to plans that you haven’t been able to execute may be the problem. Don’t limit what you can do by living in the past. Forward thinking is your best bet. 3 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t think about work or what you need to get done. Consider your next vacation or what courses you want to sign up for. You will take in information easily and can impress whoever you are with by putting it into practice quickly. 3 stars
Rose is Rose
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Charity is fine but take care of your responsibility to family and close friends first. Changing mid-stream will confuse someone trying to get you to agree on a deal you’ve been working toward. Let others know exactly where you stand. 5 stars
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Socializing with peers will lead to favorable changes in your life. Setting up meetings and dates for the new year will give you something to look forward to. Plan some romantic action. 5 stars
Dennis the Menace
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Be consistent. If you keep changing your mind or exaggerating, you will confuse or make someone angry. Emotional problems with someone you are close to will develop if you try to dictate new rules. Going out will keep you out of trouble. 2 stars
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Be nice to the people around you and to those who need your help and you will bypass conflict. Someone you may be able to partner with will remind you of an interesting idea you had years ago. Accept an inevitable change at home. 4 stars
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Talk to a friend, neighbor or relative who can help you get things ready for an activity or event you plan to attend. You will get the cooperation and backing you require. Collaboration will lead to your success. 4 stars
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll have to keep a poker face if you don’t want to rock the boat. Your observations will be insightful and, the less you do or say, the better your chance to counteract what’s happening when the time is right. 2 stars
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll have to take matters into your own hands and follow through with your plans if you want things done properly and on time. Keep your emotions in check and refuse to let someone’s inadequacy ruin your day. 3 stars
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t let love disrupt your plans. You cannot give in to someone putting demands on you. Focus on what you can do to stabilize your life financially, emotionally and physically. Put your resolutions into play. 5 stars
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t hide your feelings or play games. Get things out in the open. The time is right to make tough decisions about the future. You can reach your goals if you get rid of the dead weight you’ve been carrying. 3 stars
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Go over any last-minute details to make a project you are working on bigger, better and more efficient. Don’t be afraid to make unusual changes. Stick to basics and the truth. Honesty will play a role. 3 stars

Bengali Breakfast Grains epitomizes high-quality calories.
Exotic taste for a simple meal By Jo Marshall Relish
Cardamom is the fruit of a perennial herb related to ginger. In its native India, it’s hailed as “The Queen of Spices.” Dried pods are oblong,
typically green in color and about the size of a cranberry. Each pod contains about 20 tiny seeds, the primary source of scent and flavor. Ground cardamom loses its flavor quickly. For optimum taste, buy whole
pods. Soak them in milk and scrape the seeds into your dish. You can also grind the whole pod with a mortar and pestle or crush pods lightly and simmer them in stews or rice dishes.
Bengali Breakfast Grains Makes 6 servings 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 cup coarse grind bulgur 11⁄2 teaspoons fennel seeds 21⁄4 to 21⁄2 cups fatfree milk, divided 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1⁄4 teaspoon salt 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cardamom 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon Pinch nutmeg 1 cup fresh or 1⁄2 cup dried blueberries
Heat oil in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add bulgur and fennel seeds and cook, stirring frequently, until bulgur is toasted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in 2 cups milk, vanilla, salt and spices. Return to heat and bring just to a boil. Reduce heat to lowest simmer, cover and simmer until most, but not all, of the liquid has been absorbed, 12 to
14 minutes. Note: For softer bulgur, add another 1⁄4 cup milk and continue to cook 5 to 8 minutes. Spoon into serving dishes. Pour about 1 tablespoon milk over each serving. Garnish with blueberries. Note: If desired, use vanilla-flavored soymilk instead of regular fatfree milk and omit the vanilla extract.

PORT ANGELES, WA — This week, a consignment of reprocessed vehicles, deed vehicles and dealer overstocks will be eliminated in what could be the largest automotive sales event in Washington’s history.
Special elimination vehicles will be clearly marked with two prices. The first price is the retail price. This is the price that you would expect to see if you went used car shopping at local car dealers. The second price is the drastically reduced elimination price. This is the price that the vehicle will be sold for. This type of pricing will make it quick and easy to find the car you want at a price you can afford. The selection of cars, trucks, minivans, sport utility vehicles and motorcycles will be huge.
Truckloads of cars, trucks, minivans, sport utility vehicles and motorcycles from around the Northwest have been assembled on the property of Koenig Chevrolet Subaru, 3501 E. Highway 101 (across from Walmart), in Port Angeles for this special 5-day event with over 150 vehicles to choose from. During this sale, financing assistance will not be a problem. Local banks, finance companies and credit groups have agreed to help buyers finance these vehicles regardless of past credit history.
Buyers will find best-selling models from Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac. Popular import models from Subaru, Mercedes, Kia, Hyundai, Honda, Toyota and Nissan, as well as scooters and motorcycles by Honda, Vespa, Piaggio, Moto Guzzi and Harley Davidson will also be available. There will be approximately 20 vehicles priced below $8,995 to choose from.
According to the Event Finance Director, because all of the vehicles will be sold below the Kelley Blue Book value, little to no down payment will be necessary to obtain preferred financing. Even buyers with less than perfect credit will be able to obtain on-the-spot credit approval. This is a great opportunity to get a fantastic price and get the best financing terms available.
If you or anyone that you know is in the market for a great car, truck, minivan, sport utility vehicle, scooter or motorcycle, then you need to make plans to attend this special sale this week.
The Event Coordinator for this event said, “We will help the banks and finance companies by selling these vehicles. Banks would prefer selling to the general public at a great price rather than taking them to private auctions where the dealer buys them and turns
This special event will be held for 5 days only beginning this Monday, Dec 27th. Doors open at 8:30 AM. For further information, buyers are encouraged to call the Reprocessed Sale Hotline at:

Creamy Braising Greens Soup uses kale, a dynamo, nutritious green.
By Jo Marshall Relish
Kale’s vibrant, ruffled leaves are almost too pretty to eat — but never push it aside as a mere garnish. Nutritionally, kale is a
dynamo. A member of the brassica family that includes cabbage, broccoli and Brussels sprouts, kale has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Look for crisp leaves, store in the coldest place in
the fridge and use quickly for best flavor. Kale is sturdier than spinach and holds up well in soups and stews. It can be sauteed, used in pasta sauces, casseroles and frittatas, and added raw to salads.
