Seconds after Shelly Spoon pulled these numbers for Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing, a customer called to find out if Penny Saver Mart in Port Townsend was, indeed, selling tickets for the gigantic lottery.

Lotto fever stretched from Port Townsend to Forks — and from coast to coast — on Tuesday as a lottery jackpot reached an astronomical $355 million. The Mega Millions drawing was held at 8 p.m. Tuesday, and the winning numbers were 4-815-25-47 with a Mega Ball of 42. Whether anyone playing the game in the 41-state lottery holds the winning numbers — and where the winning ticket or tickets were sold — won’t be announced until this morning.

Building up to Tuesday night’s drawing, stores on the North Olympic Peninsula reported brisk sales as would-be multimillionaires hoped to cash in on the second-largest jackpot in U.S. history. The odds of winning the jackpot were 1 in 179 million, but that didn’t stop Vance Mattix from buying a ticket at the 76 Food Mart in Port Angeles, which had sold 322 as of 5:30 p.m.

“I’d do what everybody would do,” said Mattix, when asked what he would do with $355 million. “Quit my job.” Willie Nelson, who owns All Points Charters & Tours of Port Angeles, said he would spend the quarter-billion sprucing up Port Angeles. “You’d see a remarkable change to the waterfront and the way the town looks,” Nelson said. Jason Hope said he would donate much of the prize to charity and save “enough to live the rest of my life without working.” Turn

SEATTLE — The chairman of the state Senate Transportation Committee unequivocally pledged that the newest state ferry will go into service on the Port Townsend-Coupeville route when it begins service in the summer. “This is a very exciting day for me because it fulfills a promise to the people I represent,” said a tearful Sen.

Retelling his brush with death PORT TOWNSEND — Dale Moses has the quiet confidence of a man used to being in charge. A longtime Navy officer who retired as a captain after 35 years, he then worked as a project manager for Snohomish County. The Kala Point resident recounted his 45-minute brush with death last Thursday in the piercing cold waters of Admiralty Inlet and the Strait of Juan de Fuca as if he’d watched from a distance.

Briefly: Nation GOP challenges Obama to join it on cutbacks WASHINGTON — On the brink of power, House Republicans challenged President Barack Obama on Tuesday to join them in a drive to cut federal spending, ban earmarks for favored projects and overhaul the nation’s tax code. At the same time, incoming House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., conceded the new GOP majority intends to Cantor bypass its own new rules when it votes next week to wipe out the health care law approved by Democrats in 2010. “We just need to repeal it,” Cantor said of the effort to fulfill one of the party’s main campaign promises from last fall. Republicans, their ranks expanded by tea party-backed freshmen, take control of the House when the 112th Congress convenes at noon today. Across the Capitol, Democrats retained their majority in the November elections. But the 60 seats they controlled two years ago — enough to push through much of Obama’s agenda — will fall to 53.

Former prince dead BOSTON — The youngest son of the late shah of Iran was found dead Tuesday of an

apparent suicide at his home in Boston after he had “struggled for years to overcome his sorrow,” his brother said. “Once again, we are joined with mothers, father and relatives of so many victims of these dark times for our country,” the shah’s oldest son, Reza Pahlavi, wrote on his website in announcing the death of his brother, Alireza Pahlavi. Boston police said they found a man dead from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound shortly after 2 a.m. Tuesday at a home in the city’s South End neighborhood. Police would not confirm the man’s identity, but a law enforcement official who was not authorized to release the man’s identity and asked for anonymity confirmed that the man was Alireza Pahlavi, 44.

New faces for Obama WASHINGTON — Retooling for a re-election run, President Barack Obama is shaking up his senior leadership team to deal with the new realities of his term: The era of big legislation is over, a massive campaign effort needs energy and people, and the White House is taking a toll on those who run it. Obama’s press secretary, Robert Gibbs, is likely to leave that job, and his interim chief of staff, Pete Rouse, may go, too. Those departures would significantly alter the management of the White House and the way it explains itself to the world. In the coming days and weeks, Obama is also expected to have a new chief economic adviser, a new senior political counselor and two new deputy chiefs of staff. The Associated Press

U.S. Navy Capt. Owen Honors appears in one of a series of profanity-laced comedy sketches that were broadcast on the USS Enterprise via closed-circuit television.

Navy fires captain for making lewd videos Dismissal comes more than 3 years after creating sketches By Anne Flaherty and Pauline Jelinek The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Navy brusquely fired the captain of the USS Enterprise on Tuesday, more than three years after he made lewd videos to boost morale for his crew, timing that put the military under pressure to explain why it acted only after the videos became public. Senior military officials said they were trying to determine who among Navy leaders knew about the videos when they were shown repeatedly in 2006 and 2007 to thousands of crew members aboard the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. An investigation by U.S. Fleet Forces Command in Norfolk, Va., also is seeking to determine whether Capt. Owen Honors was reprimanded at the time. The episode has raised serious questions about whether military leaders can behave badly so long as the public doesn’t find out. “He showed bad judgment, and he embarrassed the Navy. “Those are things that are going to be hard for the Navy to ignore or to forgive,” said Stephen

Saltzburg, the general counsel of the National Institute of Military Justice and a law professor at George Washington University. Just two days after the videos were shown repeatedly on television, the Navy called a news conference Tuesday in Norfolk to announce that Honors was stepping down as ship commander and being reassigned to administrative duties ashore. “After personally reviewing the videos created while serving as executive officer, I have lost confidence in Capt. Honors’ ability to lead effectively,” said Adm. John Harvey, head of U.S. Fleet Forces Command, in Norfolk.

Not foolproof system Harvey declined to answer questions from reporters. The Pentagon said the disciplinary system isn’t foolproof but generally works. “There are always going to be people who do things they shouldn’t,” said Marine Corps Col. Dave Lapan, a Pentagon spokesman. “They will be held accountable.” Yet, Honors was set to deploy with the USS Enterprise this

month as the ship’s commander when The Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk obtained videos he made three and four years ago as the carrier’s executive officer. Honors, who took command of the ship in May, appears in the videos using gay slurs, simulating masturbation and staging suggestive shower scenes. While many sailors aboard the ship at the time have defended Honors on Facebook postings — contending he was simply providing a much-needed morale boost during long deployments at sea — senior military officials interviewed by The Associated Press said the videos were extreme and showed a disturbing lack of judgment. No leaders in senior posts at the Pentagon and in the Navy could explain why, if Honors’ conduct was so questionable, he was promoted after the videos aired. Last week, the Navy said the videos were intended merely as “humorous skits” and stopped airing immediately after other senior officers became aware of them. According to the Pentagon, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen weren’t aware of the videos until this week. They were said to have left any disciplinary action up to the Navy.

Sacked Navy captain’s once bright future most likely over By Steve Szkotak and Dena Potter

The Associated Press

NORFOLK, Va. — Navy Capt. Owen Honors was an officer with a bright future, a hotshot fighter jock who rose to become commander of one of the most storied ships in the fleet, the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise. His undoing was a sense of humor that seemed a throwback to the Navy’s raucous, macho Tailhook days nearly two decades ago. Honors, 49, was sacked as commander of the Enterprise on Tuesday for what the Navy called a “profound lack of good judgment and professionalism” in making and showing to his crew raunchy comic videos three or four years ago. In the videos, Honors used gay slurs and pantomimed masturbation.

Quick Read

Once on track to be an admiral, Honors has been reassigned to administrative duties. Military experts said his career is probably over. “Unfortunately, when you’re an officer with that kind of responsibility and you make a big error in judgment, the price that you pay is often high, particularly if the mistake you made gets a lot of publicity,” said Stephen Saltzburg, general counsel of the National Institute of Military Justice and a law professor at George Washington University. The son of a small-town police commissioner in upstate New York, Honors graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1983 and attended the U.S. Naval Fighter Weapons School, which produces the Navy’s Top Gun pilots. Honors flew 85 combat missions in three theaters, landing on

15 different carriers. “Everybody regarded him as a great fighter pilot — a guy that you would want to enter a dogfight with,” said Ward Carroll, a former aviator who flew with Honors. Carroll was “Goose” to Honors’ “Maverick,” Carroll said, comparing himself and his friend to the main characters in the movie “Top Gun.” With his boyish looks, his sandy blond hair and his first two initials, O.P., he was dubbed “Opie” by his comrades. He was funny and irreverent but always professional, Carroll said. He said he doesn’t remember Honors ever using the homophobic words or expressing the anger seen in the videos. “The guy on the video, I don’t recognize,” he said.

A government agency on the front lines of the immigration debate has begun installing lifesaving buoys in a fast-moving canal along the U.S.Mexico border in southeast California where migrants drown each year as they sneak into the country illegally. The canal can pose extreme danger to people trying to swim across. Currents moving at 25 mph to 30 mph can be no match for immigrants who can’t swim.

The Rockford Register Star reported that Fansler wasn’t due until the end of January, but doctors scheduled a caesarian section for Friday evening to avoid complications. The father, Brandon Lewis, said one of the doctors was counting the minutes down before the births.

Louisiana’s state wildlife veterinarian said at least some of an estimated 450 birds that died near Baton Rouge may have flown into a power line. Jim LaCour said Tuesday the grackles, starlings, brown-headed cowbirds and red-winged blackbirds had broken beaks and backs. The bird deaths Monday came a few days after about 3,000 blackbirds fell from the sky in central Arkansas. Scientists there said celebratory fireworks New Year’s Eve likely sent the birds into such a tizzy that they crashed into homes, cars and each other before plummeting to their deaths.

The head of the U.N.’s human rights office in Ivory Coast said at least one person was killed and as many as 130 arrested during an early morning raid on the headquarters of a party allied with the internationally recognized winner of last month’s presidential election. U.N. Human Rights Division Director Simon Munzu said he and his staff were barred from entering the building belonging to the party of Henri Konan Bedie on Tuesday hours after the shootout. Witnesses said security forces opened fire with automatic weapons for at least 20 minutes at around 5:30 a.m.

Kayaker: Tide carried him farther into channel Continued from A1 But as Moses began to recall a simple human gesture by one of his rescuers, his voice halted, he turned his head away, and a listener finished his sentence for him. “You mean he unzipped his jacket and opened it to shield you from the wind?” Bill Beezley, spokesman for East Jefferson Fire-Rescue, prompted, and Moses nodded. At that point in the tale, Moses had been pulled aboard The Volunteer, otherwise known as Marine 16, Jefferson County Fire-Rescue’s lone marine vessel for use along the many miles of shoreline that trace the edges of the district’s jurisdiction. A Coast Guard marine force protection unit out of Naval Submarine Base Bangor also was nearby when Moses got in trouble. All Moses could see from his position as he was clinging to his kayak were two distant boats that he thought were fishing vessels until The Volunteer moved within 15 feet and began pitching him a line. It took four tries for the line to come close enough for him to wrap it around his wrist so that he could be pulled to safety. The day had started gently enough, recalled Moses, a passionate kayaker for the last five years. It was cold, but the sun was shining. He put his boat in the water at Port Townsend Boat Haven for a trip intended to avoid wind and waves. “I had minimal wind and waves although I did have a bit of wind-cocking to the north as I paddled along,” his story began in Moses’ written account. “After reaching Point Hudson, I decided to go around that corner and into Fort Worden bay just to stretch out the outing.

Ferry: Salish 2nd of 3 Kwa-di Tabil Class boats Continued from A1 “We told the people of Whidbey Island that this boat was going to sail on the Coupeville-Port Townsend run, and I know that it will sail successfully on that route.” News about Tuesday’s christening was announced only one day in advance, and there was no delegation from Port Townsend present at the ceremony. Haugen was joined by her house colleague, Rep. Judy Clibborn, D-Mercer Island — who chairs the House Transportation Committee — state Secretary of Transportation Paula Hammond and Assistant Transportation Secretary David Moseley at Todd Pacific Shipyards, where the boat, which is about 80 percent finished, was put into the water last week.

The Salish, a 64-vehicle ferry, is the second of three Kwa-di Tabil Class boats contracted by the state at a cost of $213.2 million to be built by Todd. The first, the MV Chetzemoka, began service on the Port TownsendCoupeville run in November. The Salish was slated to become the second boat on that run, bringing the route to full strength for the first time since the Steel Electrics were taken out of service in 2007. That plan was cast into doubt beginning in November, when Gov. Chris Gregoire called for transportation budget cuts and Moseley suggested that one costsaving option would be to put the Salish on the San Juan Islands route — and leave the Port TownsendCoupeville route with only

of Haugen. “The question is how we are going to make up the savings that would have accrued by rerouting the boat.” All three representatives of the 24th District, which covers Jefferson and Clallam counties and a portion of Grays Harbor County — Rep. Kevin Van De Wege, D-Sequim; Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam; and legislator-elect Steve Tharinger, D-Sequim — have said that ensuring the route has two boats is a priority for them. Wherever it begins its service, the Salish’s inauguration will be less spectacular than the November inaugural run ceremony for the Chetzemoka, which included the governor and other dignitaries. Moseley said that the christening for the Salish

was more traditional than that for the Chetzemoka, which was the state’s first new ferry in more than a decade. The christening for the Salish occurred as the boat first went into the water. The Chetzemoka’s situation was unusual as the boat had been in use for several weeks undergoing tests before its christening. “With the Chetzemoka, we were pressed for time, and a christening would have taken three days, during which we would have had to stop working,” he said. “We aren’t under those kind of constraints now and decided to do it more traditionally.”

Stenson retrial case booted back By Tom Callis

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Double-murderer Darold Stenson’s plea for a retrial has once again been kicked back to Clallam County Superior Court. The state Supreme Court has asked Clallam County Judge Ken Williams to conclude by Jan. 21 whether the prosecution suppressed evidence during the former Sequim man’s 1994 trial. Stenson, 58, was found guilty of shooting his

28-year-old wife, Denise, and his 33-year-old business p a r t n e r, F r a n k Hoerner, to death on his Stenson bird farm southwest of Sequim in 1993. He is in prison in Walla Walla. The evidence in question is the same photograph that was the focus of an eightday hearing in Port Angeles last March.

In the photo, discovered by Stenson’s legal team in 2009, the lead investigator in the case is seen wearing the death row inmate’s blood-stained jeans. The investigator donned the jeans at the request of a blood-spatter expert who thought it would help determine whether Stenson got blood on his pants by kneeling by the victims or attacking them. Stenson’s lawyers argued that the investigator contaminated the evidence since he was not wearing

gloves and because a front pocket can be seen turned inside-out. The FBI, in that same pocket, found gunshot residue after the photo was taken. Williams, who presided over the trial, concluded in April that the gunshot residue should not have been used as evidence due to the possibility of contamination. But he also found that the exclusion of that evidence “would not have probably changed the outcome

of the trial.” Williams sent his findings to the Supreme Court — which requested that the hearing be held in the county’s Superior Court — to make a final determination on whether Stenson should have a retrial. Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney Deb Kelly said the state high court is now asking the judge to be more specific by stating whether the photo was suppressed by the prosecution and whether that affected his ability to have a

fair trial. Kelly is one of the two attorneys representing the state during Stenson’s fight for a new trial. In September, Williams also ordered a bullet from the crime scene to be tested for DNA. The results have not been announced, Kelly said.

Seminar to discuss ‘Boards PA council thanks city manager, but no pay hike on Fire,’ nonprofit fundraising By Tom Callis

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles City Council thanked Kent Myers on Tuesday for a job well-done but opted for no changes to the city manager’s salary after his annual employment review. Mayor Dan Di Guilio said after a 25-minute closed-door executive session that it is not the Myers time for pay raises for city administrators since City Hall has been seeking concessions from unions, including a wage freeze. “It doesn’t reflect on the job that he is doing,” he said. “It’s just a reflection of the economic times right now.”

“We believe that he is doing a very good job,” Di Guilio said. Myers, as city manager, oversees 230 full-time employees and a budget of $124.5 million for 2011. The council hired Myers in December 2008, with a salary of $150,000, to replace interim City Manager Jerry Osterman.

for severance pay equal to six months’ salary and health benefits if he was terminated for any reason that was not for “cause.” He would not receive any severance pay if he resigned.

$180,120 With health benefits and retirement contributions, Myers’ employment costs the city $180,120, said Bob Coons, city human resources manager. As part of his contract, Myers receives 30 days of general leave a year. Leave not used rolls over to the next year for all city employees, Coons said. The cap is 960 hours. Myers has 37.5 days of accrued leave, he said.

He received a 5 percent increase during his first employment review about one year ago, which bumped his pay to $157,590 a year. Osterman came on board as the temporarily replacement for Mark Madsen, who resigned in 2008 citing “untenable, hostile working conditions” with some coun________ cil members.

Port Townsend discussion to focus on funding gap By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — The slow economy has taken its toll on nonprofit organizations’ ability to raise money to support their operations, requiring them to change their focus and seek funds from individual sources, according to the head of a local foundation. “With all the governmental budget cuts, nonprofits need to turn their attention to individuals,” said Jefferson County Community Foundation Executive Director Kris Mayer.

Americans ‘generous’ “Americans are generous people, and a lot of them haven’t contributed to nonprofits because they haven’t been asked in a way that makes intellectual sense to them.” The topic will be discussed in a seminar titled “Boards on Fire: Inspiring Your Leaders to Raise Money Joyfully,” which is based on a book by Susan Howlett.

Bud accomplished this feat with the same dignity, quiet determination and humor that he had shown in all of his lifetime accomplishments. He will be greatly missed by his family, many, many friends and neighbors. Bud was born February 13, 1923, to Agnes J. (Vale) McCall and Edmond Vern McCall in Tacoma. He was raised in Tacoma, Seattle and Bremerton, and graduated from Lincoln High School in Seattle. E.J. was proud to serve our country during World

His only tour of shore duty was served at Naval Ammunition Depot Bangor, Washington, where he retired from the Navy in 1968. He served in World War II, the Korean Conflict and Vietnam. After retirement from the Navy, Ragnar worked as a steamship agent in California until his retirement from his civilian career in 1977. He, his wife, Carolyn, and son, Patrick, then moved to Sequim. In 2008, The Valley Forge Reunion Club and Navy Region Northwest honored Ragnar for his dedication and service to the U. S. Navy and the Valley Forge. He was awarded a commemorative coin to recognize and honor his outstanding service and leadership.

During the late 1960s heyday of logging, Duane’s log truck, Duane L. Starks We Haul A-Trucking, was infamous. In the mid-1970s he became a longshoreman from which he retired in 1996. He loved bowling, playing cards, golfing and having a tall cool one with his crew. Duane was a member of long standing in the Moose Club. It was often said that he “owned” several of the bar stools there. “Starkey,” as he is affectionately known, was a history buff. You could ask anything about U.S. history (especially World War II) and he knew the answer. He loved old black-andwhite World War II movies starring John Wayne, which he watched over and over.

Steelhead fishing leaves ’em cold It was daylight on the river. The stars were fading in the cold gray sky. The river Pat looked like a smoking caulNeal dron of black water oozing through a canyon of frozen rock beneath a tunnel of leaning trees. Causing questions to be asked like, what on Earth are we doing floating down a river in the darkest days of winter? The answer is simple enough. We are fishing for the winter run steelhead. These have been called the fish of a thousand casts, but no one who fishes for them bothers

to count. Sometimes it’s better not to know just how much effort is required to catch a steelhead. Whether it’s a thousand casts in the river, oar strokes on a drift boat or white-knuckle miles of ice covered road, people who fish for steelhead just don’t seem to care. In fact, once you start accounting for all the time and effort steelheading demands, it may be time to hang it up and get a life. Real steelheaders actually like the nasty weather. They cling to the false hope that freezing temperatures will keep the competition at home where they belong — near a good hot fire in the wood stove. Judging from the crowds fishing the West End these days, the weather has not been cold enough to make a dent in the hordes of anglers who invade Forks every

year at about this time. Some of the locals claim steelheaders are insane — but compared to what? Some of my seasonably depressed fancy friends use winter as an excuse to vacation in a tropical paradise. They think that if they can get away from the endless gray of the Pacific Northwest winter, life will be worth living. This is a bad mistake. You still have to come back home from your tropical vacation. There to face what’s left of the dark and dreary winter with its bills, leaky roofs and pipes that froze in your absence. As the slush melts into a pond in your basement, you wonder just why you returned from that tropical paradise, to a world where it never seems to stop raining. Meanwhile, a steelheader who has just spent the week on the

Peninsula Voices It’s democracy For those who didn’t read it, the commentary by Jen Lancaster in the Sunday PDN [“Mr. WikiLeaks, Let’s Get Real,” Jan. 2] is just the kind of naiveté (cloaked in humor) that threatens American society today. She postulates that “all of us can agree on one thing: that Julian Assange should please stick a cork in his WikiLeaks. . . .” Her reasons? “Our leaders have national securitytype discussion . . ., and that “no one wants to friend or follow covert info about Pakistan’s nuclear policy.” Actually I want to know as much as possible about everything our government does excepting those things that might endanger someone. It’s called democracy. (In spite of warnings to the contrary by government spokespersons, not one example of someone being hurt by the leaks has been exposed.)

verge of hypothermia is thrilled with the prospect of a nice warm rain. It will make the rivers rise and bring in more fish. What if we have another nasty Canadian cold snap on the way? That’s great news to a steelheader. It will make the rivers drop back to perfect shape. All weather is good weather for the delusional steelheader. Many of them have grown an extra layer of fur and blubber as a physical adaptation to the arctic conditions of winter fishing. Some fishermen even claim they have heated drift boats. Anyone who says that is either an optimist, a liar, a guide or all of the above. An open drift boat is impossible to heat. Boat heaters can also be tricky.

Drunken driving I am heartily offended by those “do gooders” who object to police traffic stoppages in the search for the damnable DUI. These persons willing to take a serious chance at death or mayhem must be stopped. Period. These persons that take this chance deserve no less than serious fines and prison time with no leniency offered or allowed. These persons caught

while driving without a license lost for a DUI must be vigorously punished. They must not be allowed to hurt others in any way. The innocent must be protected, not the perpetrator. There can be no doubt that the persons driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol have taken a criminal act after due consideration and must be slammed down in court. They have accepted the fact that they would have been criminally afoot and must suffer for their intention. If this is not sufficiently stated by the Washington state congress, it should be. Police must be given the right to stop criminals. Those that insist that individual rights are being violated should get their heads on straight and realize which rights are being by whom. Murder is murder. It is not a marginal thing to the dead or the murdering person, for driving while under the influence is a purposeful act, albeit by idiots. Daniel Zimm, Port Townsend

What will make this a better year As always, when the talk turns from bad gift buys (a windsock? a cookbook?) to resolutions, I figure it’s time to deconstruct the Christmas tree, a chore I look forward to about as much as emptying the dishwasher. But ever since the 27th of December, the tree presents me with an unmistakable truth: No part of romanticizing the holiday is still possible. I just want to go to bed and wake up in a new year. Funny, it’s Jan. 2. The tree remains. There’s still something fragrant in its branches. Something alive. It seems cruel to hermetically seal it in a giant plastic bag, so snug it will need a forceps delivery before it can be shredded. Now, of course, hubby Larry lectures about the tree becoming a fire hazard, how its brownish tinge proves I’m crazy. So I lecture back, reminding him how I have a couple of standards, buddy, when putting away

RJ has so much compassion for all living creatures. He wields his huge belly around like a magic wand but never tries to force his version of things on that of another, nothing like that. He just spreads goodness around like so much angel dust, saying things like, “Have you ever noticed, darling, how the whole world talks about peace on Earth, but they aren’t willing to make sure it occurs?” When I say I have noticed, he says, “They mean well, the masses; they just don’t have the right masseuse.” Anyway, there is enough hope in the last couple of paragraphs to make me believe the year ahead will be splendid . . . short of North Korea going off the deep end, Afghanistan becoming a war without end, or my youngest Port Townsend friend, Shanta, marrying too soon again. Wait! There is one more thing I’m worried about.

Alternatives sought to proposed cuts $4.6 billion deficit faces lawmakers

24th District reps say they’ll look for solutions

The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Legislators plan to seek alternatives to Gov. Chris Gregoire’s proposal of eliminating statefunded health care for the poor and assistance to the disabled, leaders said Tuesday. But Gregoire said the state’s budget is in such bad shape that there aren’t many programs or services left for lawmakers to cut and deliver a balanced budget. “I’ve been where they’ve been,” Gregoire said at an annual legislative forum sponsored by The Associated Press. “They’re several months behind me, and I went in with the exact same attitude that they’re expressing now. But when they get down to it, there aren’t any options. “We ought to step up and say there are things we can’t do anymore,” she said.

$4.6 billion deficit When the 2011 legislative session begins Monday, lawmakers will be tasked with patching a projected $4.6 billion deficit as the state slogs through a moribund economy.

From left, House Speaker Frank Chopp, D-Seattle, House Republican Leader Richard DeBolt, R-Chehalis, Senate Republican Leader Mike Hewitt, R-Walla Walla, and Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown, D-Spokane, talk to reporters Tuesday. Last month, Gregoire unveiled an all-cuts budget proposal that eliminated the state’s Basic Health and Disability Lifeline programs for a cut of more than $550 million. The Basic Health Program provides subsidized medical insurance to 66,000 poorer Washingtonians, and the Disability Lifeline program aids mostly childless adults who are unemployable but not receiving federal aid. Her budget left almost no department untouched, closing a state prison, suspending teacher raises, gutting the state parks’ budget and even putting up for sale

about a dozen state buildings to raise money. Gregoire said that due to mandates in the state constitution, about 60 percent of the state budget is offlimits, leaving about 40 percent, or $14 billion, on the chopping block — and from that $14 billion, more than $4 billion must be cut. She said legislators will be on a learning curve in the next couple of months as they form their counter budgets. “I will not sign a budget that isn’t balanced at the end, that doesn’t cut programs . . . and make up for a $4.6 billion deficit,” Gregoire said.

Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown, D-Spokane, said programs like Basic Health will sustain significant budget cuts but that alternatives to elimination will be sought.

Trim, not eliminate House Speaker Frank Chopp, D-Seattle, said the Disability Lifeline program has been on the cutting board before, but legislators were able trim instead of eliminate it. Such programs provide vital services to disabled people, including war veterans, he said. “Governors have proposed eliminating the program — I think five times,”

Chopp said. “We’re used to this. We just went to work and reformed the program.” Republican leaders said they support keeping vital services for the vulnerable, but they lobbied for reforming the services to slim them down fiscally and

limit how long people can be on social welfare programs. “We’ll give [people] some resources for a period of time, but it should not be an entitlement,” said Senate Minority Leader Mike Hewitt, R-Walla Walla.

Port Angeles schools’ levy measure debated Supporters, opponents spar over education costs, taxes By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News

its final year. The current levy rate is $2.43 per $1,000 assessment — which means the owner of a $200,000 home will pay $486 in property taxes this year. If passed, the estimated rate would be $2.65 per $1,000 assessment each of the four years. Although the amount of the levy collected by the district will increase, the amount the rate changes depends on property values, which are expected to rise by a small percentage each year. At the expected rate, the owner of a $200,000 home would pay about $530 in property taxes for the replacement levy — a difference of about $44 from the present levy.

PORT ANGELES — Supporters and opponents of the Port Angeles School District maintenance and operations levy measure sparred over the costs of education and taxes Tuesday. Both spoke to about 40 people at a Port Angeles Business Association meeting about the measure that will be on the Feb. 8 special election ballot. The co-chairs of the Port Angeles Citizens for Education — former deputy mayor Betsy Wharton and State Farm insurance agent Steve Methner — said that the school district needs the replacement levy revenue to maintain current levels of success. Shelley Taylor, a taxlimit advocate, said that an Reasonable or costly? economic recession is not Methner said he felt the the time to raise taxes. increase was reasonable. “If you think about it, Levy request, costs that is less than a cup of The district’s measure coffee a month” for a year, asks voters to approve a he said. “So if you can not have four-year property tax levy that would collect Starbucks one day a month, $8,178,067 in 2012 and you could pay that differincrease slightly over the ence of what it takes to educate these children.” next four years.

owners could spare the expense. “Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey makes a lot of sense when asked about his unpopular cuts to education,” she said. “‘I don’t want to hurt teachers. But how can I pay people if I don’t have the money? I literally don’t have it,’” Taylor quoted Christie as saying. “The federal government doesn’t have the money, states don’t, and constituents certainly don’t,” Taylor said.

ting teachers proportionally to the enrollment, Pryne said. State budget cuts are far more devastating, the superintendent said. In the past several year, the district has cut its budget by: ■  $455,000 in the 20072008 school year. ■  $1,369,500 in the 2008-2009 school year. ■  $2,563,873 in the 2009-2010 school year. ■  $1,970,373 in the 2010-2011 school year. In December, state legislators voted to cut the school’s budget in the current year by about $1 million. “In my 34 years in education, I’ve never seen that happen in the middle of the year. They have always given a heads-up,” Pryne said. “And you can see that in the levy, we are asking for about $730,000 more.

State cuts in funding The increase is necessary because of state cuts to public school district funding, Superintendent Jane Pryne said. Another source of declining revenues is enrollment, which has been decreasing for more than a decade. But the district was cut-

Resolve to get out on the links A SCANT FIVE days have passed, but I’m sure many of you have broken your New Year’s resolutions already. The reason? You made them Michael too difficult. Carman Its hard to will yourself to daily exercise, eating right, being kind to others at every opportunity, etc. That’s why if I set a resolution I like to keep it small and manageable. What did I resolve to do more of in 2011? Play golf. Shocking, I know, but I really didn’t play as much as I should have last year, especially considering I write about the sport every week. Playing nine or 18 holes once or twice a week will help move me toward that daily exercise goal, and if I stay away from hot dogs at the turn and stick to bananas or peanut butter sandwiches as my in-round snack, I’ll be closer to eating a more healthy diet. And once it’s warm, I might have a chance to get a really nice farmer’s tan out on the links.

Midwinter scramble Sequim’s SkyRidge Golf Course, 7015 Old Olympic Highway, will host its Midwinter Open three-person Scramble on Saturday, Jan. 15.

Port Townsend’s next tournament is the Ice Cube Open this Saturday. And make sure to reserve your spot for the annual Arctic Open on Feb. 12-13. That tournament goes on in any weather, even snow, and is always a popular and full event. For more information on any Port Townsend Golf Club event, phone the course at 360-385-4547.

A bit of a shocker The news that Augusta National, home of the famed Masters, would be included in the “Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12” video game for play on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, was surprising. I reviewed last year’s game and found it fun to play, especially with a group of friends (Wow! Just like real golf) but missing a crucial piece, the ability to play The Masters tournament at Augusta National. It was a familiar lament, the game hadn’t appeared on a video game or computing platform since I played Accolade’s “Mean 18” in the late 1980s. I blamed “fuddy-duddies” in green jackets for Augusta’s absence last year. It turns out I was way off. Turn

Seattle coach Pete Carroll watches the Seahawks practice Tuesday in Renton. The Seahawks host the New Orleans Saints on Saturday in an NFC-wild card game.

Hawks buy into system Carroll keeps competitive pressure on all his players By Tim Booth

The Associated Press

RENTON — From the time he first walked into the Seahawks’ palatial headquarters on Lake Washington, Pete Carroll pledged competition. It’s the crux of nearly everything he’s done since arriving in Seattle. It’s why the Seahawks have made 275 roster transactions since Carroll and general manager John Schneider took over nearly a year ago, trading players like commodities, rarely hesitating when the opportunity came to make a change. Of the Seahawks’ 53-man roster for Saturday’s playoff game against New Orleans, only 21 players were there a year ago. His philosophy of change is why Carroll didn’t blink at the idea of starting a 10th different offensive line combination in a must-win season finale — even if there were still leaks everywhere — or the idea of going with backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst in last Sunday’s 16-6 division-clinching win over St. Louis.

Tough prospect ahead But perhaps his toughest sell job of all since he took over could come this week, convincing his seven-win team it’s capable of upsetting the defending Super Bowl champion Saints in the first round of the NFC playoffs. “This is just a step in the process of getting a club to the mindset that it takes to prepare to perform like a champion and find the consistency that it takes to become that,” Carroll said. A year ago, the Seahawks were an old team trying to win a weak division and they collapsed into a five-win mess that cost Pete Carroll, right, watches as quarterback Charlie Whitehurst throws Tuesday.

Forks boys pound Tenino Three score career highs for Spartans Peninsula Daily News

FORKS — Three players had career scoring highs as the Forks boys basketball team ripped Tenino by 13 points in Southwest Washington League action Tuesday night. The Spartans beat Tenino 61-48 to improve to 2-1 in league and 5-4 overall. Forks has a crucial league game on Friday at Montesano, which also is 2-1 in league. “That’s a big game for us,” Forks coach Scott Justus said. To tune up for Montesano, three players hit career highs against Tenino, including Frank Noles, who ripped the nets for a game-high 21 points and he completed a double-double with 15 rebounds. Noles had seven offensive boards, and he also had three steals. “Frank had a monster night,” Justus said. In addition, Braden Decker had a career high of 19 points and Cameron Leons came off the bench for a career high 13 points. Leons also had three steals while Tyler Penn grabbed seven rebounds. Despite all the scoring, the Spartans could have had more, Justus said. “We had a chance to bury

It all seems like a trend toward hooking younger and younger players on the game of golf and the lore of Augusta National. A smart move considering the advancing age of much of golf’s clientele. Hand in hand with the inclusion of Augusta National, The Masters has also formed the Masters Tournament Foundation as a way of annually investing in development programs worldwide. The Masters will receive proceeds from the game, and will direct 100 percent of that money to the new foundation. My concerns that the

game may have been hastily put together considering its March 29 (nine days before the first round of The Masters) were eased after reading an Associated Press article by Doug Ferguson on “It took 10 days to laser the course, and the entire project took the equivalent of 10 people working around the clock for a full year on nothing but Augusta National,” said EA Sports President Peter Moore. So the game will have the same elevation changes that the course has and the same azaleas and dogwoods lining the rough.

Senator wants FTC investigation of new football helmet makers The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A senator is asking the Federal Trade Commission to investigate “misleading safety claims and deceptive practices” in the selling of new football helmets and reconditioning of used ones. Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., said in a letter sent Tuesday to FTC chairman Jon Leibowitz that helmet companies “appear to be using

misleading advertising claims” and that “some helmet reconditioning companies may be falsely selling used helmets as meeting an industry safety standard.” Udall writes that he is particularly concerned about sales of helmets for children’s use. Udall also says he is “troubled by misleading marketing claims by Riddell, a leading helmet maker that supplies the official

helmet to the National Football League.”

Questions website He quotes Riddell’s website as saying that “research shows a 31 percent reduction in the risk of concussion in players wearing a Riddell Revolution football helmet when compared to traditional helmets.” Udall adds: “Yet there is actually very little scientific

NEW ORLEANS — Ohio State might want to send a thank-you note to the NCAA for helping to end its bowl misery against the SEC. Terrelle Pryor threw two touchdown passes, helping the No. 6 Buckeyes build a big lead, and Solomon Thomas made an interception with 58 seconds remaining that sealed a 31-26 victory over eighth-ranked Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl on Tuesday night. Pryor and Thomas were among five Ohio State players found to have violated NCAA rules by selling memorabilia and getting discounted tattoos just before the Buckeyes (12-1) headed for the Big Easy. They were all suspended for the first five games of next season — but permitted to play in the Sugar Bowl. Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel said all five pledged to return to school next season to serve the punishment. In the end, Ohio State needed them all to beat a Southeastern Conference team in a bowl for the first time. The Buckeyes had lost their previous nine postseason meetings against the SEC. The group also included Dan Herron and DeVier Posey, who each scored a touchdown. But Thomas, the only backup among them, made the biggest play of all. Arkansas (10-3) had a chance to complete an improbable comeback when Colton Miles-Nash leaped over two linemen to block a punt, putting the Razorbacks at the Ohio State 18 with 1:09 remaining. But Thomas surprised Ryan Mallett by dropping into coverage from his defensive end position. Mallett never saw him and Thomas held on to the pick to seal the win. Pryor has vowed to return for his senior season,

Sugar Bowl even though he won’t be able to play until next October. He left the Ohio State faithful with a good memory, completing 14 of 25 passes, including a 15-yard TD to Dane Sanzenbacher and a 43-yarder to Posey. Pryor also ran for a team-leading 115 yards. Mallett was 24 of 47 for 277 yards, including a pair of touchdowns. But he’d sure like to have that last pass back. Ohio State raced to a 28-7 lead in the first half. Sanzenbacher scored the first of his two TDs by recovering a fumble by Pryor at the end of a 34-yard run. Two Arkansas players knocked each other off the loose ball, and the Ohio State senior fell on it. Herron scored on a 9-yard run, then Pryor hooked up with Sanzenbacher and Posey on touchdown throws that had it looking like a Buckeyes rout. Arkansas stopped the onslaught, but Ohio State was still comfortably ahead, 31-13 with just over 4 minutes left in the third quarter, after Devin Barclay booted a 46-yard field goal. From there, it was all Arkansas — until the final minute. In the last minute of the third, Mallett laid out a pass with perfect touch in the corner of the end zone. Jarius Wright ran under it and got a foot down for a 22-yard touchdown. The Razorbacks might have been more inspired by the 2-point conversion. Mallett flipped a pass to tight end D.J. Williams, who was wrapped up and appeared stopped by Jermale Hines. But Williams somehow got his right arm loose and stuck the ball across the plane of the goal line, cutting the Buckeyes’ lead to 31-21.

Hawks: Believe “You saw how many roster moves we had all year,” Milloy played for Carroll early in his career in New England. “We had some players who were big-time players go down and he knows how to right the ship. “He keeps us focused, he keeps the atmosphere light and seems like he always knows what to say. We’re an extension of him. The energy he brings is second to none.” Aside from actually getting Seattle to the postseason, Carroll’s also brought notoriety back to the Seahawks for the first time since the team made its only Super Bowl run back in 2005. Folks are paying attention to the Pacific Northwest, even if the product isn’t that appealing. In some ways, Seattle is worse than last year. Their inability to run the ball this season has been a laughable failure, sans the second half last Sunday night against St. Louis when Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks finally found some success running off the right side of a beleaguered offensive line. Seattle’s run game ranked 31st in the league and failed to have a 100yard rusher all season. The Seahawks finished the 2010 season among the worst statistically in the NFL — ranked 28th in offense and 27th on defense — lost seven of their final 10 games and yet are hosting a playoff game. “We played some miserable football at times and looked like we didn’t have a clue what we were doing,” Carroll said. “But the guys hung together with the whole thought of it. How do we do it? By being consistent and not whacking out. “I think we stayed very true to our principles and our beliefs, trusting that we’re on course and we’re going to be OK.”

Politics & Environment

Gregoire proposal aims at jobless rates, benefits The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Businesses would save more than $300 million in unemployment-insurance taxes this year and receive subsidies to return injured employees to light duty under a slew of job-creation proposals unveiled Tuesday by Gov. Chris Gregoire. Rates for unemployment insurance are set to jump 36 percent this year in Washington state. Gregoire’s proposal would cap the shared-cost portion of the tax and offset that by tapping a state trust fund, Gregoire said. Ninety percent of businesses would see lower bills for the shared-cost portion of the tax, she said, and

some 65,000 small businesses would see their bill cut nearly in half. The Legislature must act before Feb. 8, she said, to ensure employers can pay the lower rates this year. “We hope this will allow us to accelerate our growth, put our people back to work again and see our way out of this recession sooner than we thought,” she said.

Workers’ comp Meanwhile, Gregoire also proposed significant changes to the workers’ compensation system that she said would add up to $720 million in savings over four years. The state runs the sev-

enth-largest workers’ compensation system in the nation, one that covers 2.3 million workers employed by 163,000 employers. Washington is the only state that requires employees to contribute a portion of the cost. The changes would, among other things, would limit which health-care providers may treat injured workers, give subsidies to employers who help injured employees get back to work sooner and take steps to reduce lifetime pension costs. Injured workers now can see any health-care provider who registers with the state Department of Labor & Industries, which admin-

isters the workers’ compensation system. Under the proposed change, health-care providers who rehabilitate injured workers would need to become credentialed. Lifetime pensions are about 8 percent of workers’ compensation claims but account for 85 percent of the system’s costs, Gregoire said. And the share of these claims that convert to pensions has doubled over the past decade. “Clearly we have a problem in the pension system,” Gregoire said. “This is reform we have to do if we’re going to continue to have a stable system.”

Kitsap aims to turn traffic court into money maker The Associated Press

PORT ORCHARD — Kitsap County prosecutors have come up with a plan to turn traffic court into a moneymaking operation. Traffic court is usually a relentless effort by lawyers to get their clients’ cases dismissed — usually with little defense from the government. Kitsap County senior deputy prosecutor Claire Bradley calls it “trial by ambush.”

Met by counterpoint Starting Monday in Kitsap County, each defense by people fighting tickets or charges in traffic court has been met by a counterpoint from the prosecutor’s office.

It was the first time Kitsap County prosecutors have appeared in traffic court. Even on the first day, the prosecutors’ presence may have brought in some money from tickets that might have been thrown out on technicalities in the past. Kitsap County Prosecutor Russ Hauge believes his plan could bring in $148,000 in additional money to the county. Before, Hauge told the commissioners last fall, “if you know the magic words to say,” tickets would be dismissed without any argument from prosecutors — because no prosecutor was in court.

“Having the state here in court, they have the ability to give the opinion of law enforcement,” said Ryan Witt, a Bremerton attorney who represents clients who are fighting traffic tickets. “It’s a balancing effect.” On Monday afternoon, Witt represented a man who had been cited for not having auto insurance after he was pulled over for an improper turn signal. The turn-signal ticket was thrown out because the Kitsap County Sheriff’s deputy referred to the wrong law in his report. The insurance ticket stood, however, because a prosecutor produced the official Department of Licensing rule, which

showed that the deputy could issue a citation if the driver failed to produce a valid insurance card. Witt’s client will have to pay a $210 fine. Witt expects the new system will slow down proceedings in traffic court and probably make him and his clients less happy, “because I like to give my client a positive outcome.” He still believes he can do that, but he expects the prosecutors will make that more of a challenge. Deputy prosecutors will be present in traffic courts not just at the county courthouse, but in Port Orchard, Poulsbo and Bainbridge Island.

Breakup of 82-year-old gadget pioneer Motorola is complete The Associated Press

Little concern over phone merger OLYMPIA — State residents are apparently nonplussed about the planned Qwest-Century Link merger. Of the 73 public comments submitted so far to the state Utilities and Transportation Commission, 34 are opposed, 33 undecided and six are in favor of the deal. Last week, the companies, the UTC staff and the state Attorney General’s Office reached an agreement on conditions needed for the deal to receive state approval. Among other things, the deal caps residential phone rates for three years after the deal closes and requires Century Link, formed through the merger of CenturyTel and Embarq, to spend at least $80 million upgrading broadband infrastructure in Washington. That agreement must now receive final approval from the commission, which is holding its first hearing on the topic at 5:30 p.m. today at its headquarters at 1300 S. Evergreen Park Drive S.W. in Olympia. The combined company would have about 17 million phone lines serving customers in 37 states. It would be based at CenturyLink’s headquarters in Monroe, La., rather than in Denver, where Qwest is based. CenturyLink serves rural areas in Clallam and Jefferson counties, including Forks, Clallam Bay, Neah Bay, Quilcene and Brinnon.

Tax class slated SEQUIM — A 2010 Federal Tax Update class with Andy Biebl will be held at John Wayne Marina, 2577 West Sequim Bay Road, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday. Cost for the course is $300. Lunch will be provided by the Dockside Grill. For more information or to register, phone 360461-2111 or e-mail and indicate the number of people attending.

Bare baristas EVERETT — Snohomish County officials said they have had no complaints lodged about scantily clad baristas in the year since tougher rules were adopted. County Auditor Carolyn Weikel said not only have there been no complaints, no one has applied for a license to run an “adult-business” coffee stand. A year ago, the county adopted new rules spelling out what constituted lewd conduct by baristas. The rules also said stand owners are responsible for employee behavior. Those rules apply to unincorporated areas in the county, but Everett and Lynnwood also changed city laws in 2009 after hearing complaints about drive-thru coffee stands. The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Republican leaders have named

former U.S. Sen. Slade Gorton and former state legislator Tom Huff to the bipartisan commission that will redraw the state’s congressional and legislative districts, including carving out a district for a new congressional seat. Along with Democrats that include former Seattle Deputy Mayor Tim Ceis and Dean Foster, who served as Gov. Booth Gardner’s chief of staff, the commission will take a year to redraw the political map. Washington state gained one congressional seat after the results of the Census were revealed in December. The redistricting process is handled by the citizen Redistricting Commission. The commission is comprised of two Democrats, two Republicans and a nonvoting chairman. It was created by constitutional amendment nearly 20 years ago to take the time-consuming and intensely political process out of the hands of the Legislature and governor. Gorton’s and Huff’s appointments were announced Tuesday by House Minority Leader Richard DeBolt, R-Chehalis, and Senate Minority Leader Mike Hewitt, R-Walla Walla.

NEW YORK — Motorola, the 82-year-old consumer electronics pioneer responsible for early televisions, cell phones and even the first broadcast from the moon, split into two companies Tuesday in a reflection of changing markets. As separate companies — Mobility, targeting consumers, and Solutions, for professionals — the two will have simpler stories to tell investors and a nimbler approach to developing cutting-edge products such as tablet computers. Sanjay Jha, CEO of the consumer-focused Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc., said in an interview that the new company will benefit from a narrower focus, all the way up to the top management and the board of directors. “I think you’ll see a board that is much more focused on understanding technology as opposed to managing a portfolio of products,” Jha said. For decades, Motorola Inc.’s products told the story of the march of electronics into the hands of consumers: car radios in the 1930s, TVs in the 1940s and cell phones starting the 1980s. The company also expanded into police radios and barcode scanners aimed at government agencies and large businesses. These divisions complicated the picture Motorola painted for investors; now, they make up the second company, Motorola Solutions Inc. With the breakup comes a shrunken bureaucracy, which both companies hope will help them make faster decisions and compete better in the marketplace. As part of the breakup, Motorola is selling its cellular network equipment division to Nokia Siemens Networks, a Finnish-German joint venture. Motorola shareholders of

Sequim woman saves two children from fire By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — Liz Countryman has lived the last several weeks in a haze. Although the smoky fog that she awoke to find on the afternoon of Dec. 22 has long since faded, the chaos following surviving a fire that consumed her home and all her belongings has been a blur, she said Tuesday. The family moved into a new home Monday but is still struggling to replace the multitude of belongings that were lost, along with the mobile home they were living in. Countryman was home with her two sons — Rigo Gomez, 5, and Damian Gomez, 2 — and had put them down for a nap at about 11:30 a.m. Her husband, Salude Gomez, was not at home at the time, she said. “We had gotten up really early, so I was going to take a nap, too,” she said. She stretched out on the couch and awoke with what she thought was an asthma attack. “It was weird; there was smoke — you could hardly see through it — but it didn’t smell like it,” she said. “It was more like a gray fog.”

“Finally, I heard him coughing,” she said. “I went in my room, and I saw him under my bed. I had already looked there, but that is where I store all of our blankets, and he had rolled himself up in one.” She flipped the bed on its side, pulled him out and dropped him out the window but couldn’t get out herself. “I knew the back door was about 2½ feet from my bedroom, but it was all full of flames already,” she said. “I’m a coward when it comes to fire and getting burned and stuff, but I wrapped my hair up in a blanket and made for it as fast as I could.”

Doorknob seared her hand

The door handle was so hot that it seared her hand down to the muscle tissue in places, she said, pointing to the still-visible wound. After making her way outside, she began coughing up soot in a tar-like substance, she said. “It was like three days before that went away,” she said.

Dry Creek pedestrian bridge ready to use By Tom Callis

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — The new Dry Creek pedestrian bridge, part of the Olympic Discovery Trail, is ready for use. Glenn Cutler, city of Port Angeles public works utilities director, said Thursday that the span in west Port Angeles had been structurally complete for the “past week.” A formal ribbon-cutting ceremony or announcement wasn’t made because a sewer line still needs to be strung under the bridge and a sealant needs to be applied, he said. Both will be done in the spring. In the meantime, the bridge is open, Cutler said. “If people are going to walk down there, they are going to be knee-deep in mud,” he advised. The 200-foot-long bridge can be accessed via the for-

‘Huge step’

Fun ’n’ Advice

Peninsula Daily News

Teen fears for girlfriend’s safety DEAR ABBY: I’m dating a 15-year-old girl who was seriously physically abused in the past. She and her mom had to move away for a while but have now been told by the Department of Children and Family Services that it’s safe for them to move back with her father, who abused her. After seeing what goes on in this house and hearing her describe how they treat her, I think the physical abuse has changed to mental and emotional abuse. I’m not sure what to do because I’m 18 and it’s “illegal” that we are dating. It scares me that they can use anything against me. What to Do?

three years, “Sam,” came home from Van Buren basic training in the Army and told me he wanted to go active. (He was part of the National Guard.) He has asked me to go with him, and I agreed, but in order to do that, we have to be married. I love Sam very much and we have talked about marriage before, but not elopement.

The Last Word in Astrology By Eugenia Last

Rose is Rose


ARIES (March 21-April 19): Sharing responsibilities will make the difference. Someone may try to stand in your way. If you have looked at every angle and have a response for every negative, you will get favorable results. 4 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Socializing will lead to personal and professional opportunities. Your ability to adapt to whatever you are faced with will impress someone in a key position. A tradeshow, conference or geographical region that caters to your talents is a must. 3 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It will be easy to send the wrong message if you say something out of turn or reveal information that should be kept secret. Changes at home will be a direct result of something you say to someone you depend on for comfort or money. 3 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your emotions will hold you back. Put your differences aside and strive for perfection in all that you do and you cannot lose. A change in the way you do things will result, once you realize the cost involved and who is being greedy. 2 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t let work bog you down when you should be focusing on your hobbies, friends, family or your lover. Nurture what’s important to you. Changes to your home life will lead to a brighter and more inviting future. 3 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ve got everything going for you, so take advantage of your good fortune. Talk to people who can contribute to your goals and make changes that will give you greater freedom to excel. 3 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Positive action and information will bring you good results, even if someone is trying to sabotage what you are trying to accomplish. Your determination, creativity and originality will separate you from everyone else. 5 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Accept the inevitable but monitor every step of the way. Hold on to as much control as you can in order to look out for your own interests. Keeping the peace is one of your finer qualities and will come in extremely handy right now. 5 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t fall for someone’s poor-me attitude or idle threats. Stop making excuses for being different or taking a path that others might not consider. Once you establish what you can do and how you can accomplish your goals, you will excel. 3 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Getting together with peers will lead to decisions that can help you move forward with your plans. Your ideas and the way you express what you want to do will lead to furthering your interests. Travel for business will pay off. 4 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Interaction will lead to someone you want to either work with or at least get to know better. Your creativity is high and your ability to get others to look at what you are trying to accomplish will pay off. 4 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Try your hand at something new and you will find a way to earn extra income. Love and romance are on the rise but honesty will play an important role. Don’t promise anything you don’t intend to honor. 3 stars

Food and Family

Bundle up, warm up with comfort food Go against convention By Jim Romanoff

The Associated Press

The cold days of winter generally signal that it is time to get out the stew pot. This winter, consider veering off the traditional recipe path and trying this somewhat unconventional, yet still classically comforting, fragrant coconut-lime beef stew. The Associated Press

As the nights get longer and warm comfort food from the stew pot is what you crave, consider Fragrant Coconut-Lime Beef Stew. Substituting potatoes for the carrots will make it even more of a stick-to your-ribs meal.

Ingredients Fresh ginger, ground coriander, cumin and turmeric season a rich, coco-

nut milk-based sauce that gets zing from fresh lime juice and lime zest, plus a touch of heat from a pinch or two of cayenne pepper.

Substitution If you want to take the theme a bit further, substitute diced sweet potatoes for the carrots and use a modest amount of chopped, fresh Scotch bonnet chili pepper instead of the cayenne. Serve over a helping of steamed white or brown rice.

Fragrant Coconut-Lime Beef Stew Makes 8 servings 3 tablespoons canola oil, divided 1 medium yellow onion, chopped (about 1 cup) 5 cloves garlic, minced 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger 11⁄2 teaspoons ground coriander 11⁄2 teaspoons cumin 1⁄2 teaspoon turmeric 1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or more to taste 3 pounds beef chuck, cut into 1-inch chunks 14-ounce can unsweetened coconut milk 2-inch strip lime zest

2 tablespoons lime juice 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1⁄2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste 2 bay leaves 1 pound baby carrots 1⁄2 cup chopped peanuts (optional)

________ Heat the oven to 325 degrees. In a large Dutch oven over medium-high, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the onion and saute until it begins to color, about 7 to 8 minutes.

Add the garlic, ginger, coriander, cumin, turmeric and cayenne pepper. Cook until fragrant, about 1 minute longer. Transfer the mixture to a large plate. Return the Dutch oven to the burner. Increase heat to high and add another 11⁄2 teaspoons of oil to the pot. When the oil is hot, add a quarter of the beef and cook until well browned on all sides, about 3 minutes. Transfer to the plate. Brown the remaining beef in 3 more batches,

adding oil as needed. Return the onion mixture and browned beef to the pot. Stir in the coconut milk, lime zest, lime juice, brown sugar, 1⁄2 teaspoon salt, bay leaves and baby carrots. Bring the mixture to a simmer, cover, then place in the oven for 11⁄2 to 13⁄4 hours, or until the beef is tender. Alternatively, the stew can be simmered over low heat on the burner. Season with salt. Serve garnished with chopped peanuts, if desired.

Roasted on an open fire By Jo Marshall Relish


Chestnuts go hand in hand with roasting — their tough shells are nearly impossible to remove without it, and their high levels of tannic acid make it inadvisable to eat them raw. Chestnuts lack the crunch of other nuts; their starchy texture is almost potato-like. Grab fresh chestnuts during their limited winter season, or buy them ready to use yearround, in jars and vacuum pouches.

To roast To roast them, cut an X on the flat side of each chestnut with a sharp paring knife. Place chestnuts in a grill pan or chestnut roaster and gently shake over a fire about 15 minutes. If you prefer to roast them in the oven, place them in a shallow baking pan and roast 20 minutes at 350 degrees or until corners of the Xs curl up. While warm, remove outer shell. To remove papery skin, roll the chest-

nuts in a clean dishtowel. People have enjoyed chestnuts in several forms for centuries. By Roman times, chestnuts were being ground into flour. The original Italian polenta was made from chestnut meal, enjoyed for centuries before the introduction of corn.

Chestnut flour Chestnut flour, which lacks the gluten that gives structure to wheat breads, was made into flatbreads and was used to extend wheat flour. Chestnut flour is still popular in Italian baked goods. A chestnut variety indigenous to North America was plentiful when European settlers arrived. A blight in the early 20th century, believed to have been caused by imported Asian trees, all but wiped out the American Chestnut. Biologists are still working on a comeback, but the nuts we buy today are generally imported.

Brussels Sprouts and Chestnuts Serves 6 21⁄2 cups shelled chestnuts (about 1 pound unshelled) 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half 2 tablespoons olive oil 1⁄4 teaspoon salt Freshly ground black pepper 2 ounces chopped ham 2 tablespoons

soy sauce

________ Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss chestnuts, Brussels sprouts, olive oil, salt and pepper together on a baking sheet. Roast 30 to 40 minutes. During the last 10 minutes, stir in ham and soy sauce.

Relish Magazine

Chestnuts, used in this Brussels Sprouts and Chestnuts dish, can be bought briefly during the winter or ready-to-use year-round in jars and vacuum pouches.

Peninsula Daily News

Mah-jongg, a game for all seasons BARBARA GRAY’S MOTHER, a waitress, used to watch women play it in the afternoons at the Rainbow Cafe in Minneapolis. Sandy Dengler saw an ad for an introductory lesson at a bookstore in Norman, Okla. Arline Lillian grew up in East Flatbush, N.Y., and used to play for high stakes. “I still have the last $10 I won,” Lillian said. “It’s in change.” They come from different parts of the country and different backgrounds, but Monday afternoons, the three women are gathered around a table at the Port Townsend Community Center playing mah-jongg. Similar to rummy, mah-jongg is a fast-paced game that requires skill, concentration and the ability to perceive patterns that, like the squares of winter sunlight mottling the floor, shift slightly with each round of play. “You have to know when to change hands,” Lillian said. “You have to watch what’s passing.” Mah-jongg was popular in the ’20s, when it was imported from China, and enjoyed a brief revival when Amy Tan’s book The Joy Luck Club came out in 1989. It is played with 144 tiles consisting of three suits — bamboo, circles and wans, or characters — plus the four winds, the four seasons, four flowers and three dragons. Each tile is associated with a color and a Chinese character — for example, the circle on the No. 1 tile in that suit represents the pearl, or the moon from the bottom of the sea. “I find it fascinating,” said Gray, who grew up in Minnesota. “It’s so different from anything I grew up playing, like Monopoly. Mah-jongg seems so unique.” To start the game, the players throw the dice to see who will be the East wind, the equivalent of the dealer. Then, they build the wall, laying out the tiles in a square, two tiles high and 18 tiles long on each side, symbolic of the wall around a city. The East wind throws the dice, determining where wall is broken, and the players take turns drawing pairs of tiles, then a single one, until they each have 13 tiles. The women play American style using the National Mah Jongg League rules, which designate the combinations of sets of two, three or four that can make up a mah-jongg, or winning hand. “You have to see how many of one or two patterns you can put

port townsend Neighbor together,” Dengler said of Jackson starting the game. “At one point, you have to abandon one, usually the one you shouldn’t have.” After doing the Charleston — exchanging unwanted tiles by passing them right, left and over — they take turns, drawing one tile from the wall, then discarding. As a tile is discarded, the player announces what it is — two bam (bamboo), south (wind), nine dot (circle), red (dragon). The list of winning mah-jongg hands is divided into nine categories, which change each year in March. For 2010, one hand is a combination of flowers and numbers denoting the year. Lillian said she used to get the new list and memorize it while waiting in the line at the car wash in New Jersey. Having played for years is an advantage. “Some of the hands come around again,” Lillian said. Gray said she grew up hearing about mah-jongg from her mother, who watched Jewish women play it in the afternoon at the Minneapolis cafe where she worked. But Gray didn’t learn to play it until she moved to Temple, Texas, where mah-jongg was a popular social activity for women, like canasta clubs or bunco. When Gray moved to Port Townsend in 2003, she couldn’t find anyone who played mahjongg, so she went to the senior association that meets at the community center and suggested forming a group. “I said I would start it and teach it,” she said. “Sometimes, we had three tables.” Dengler said she also had always heard about mah-jongg, so when she saw an ad for an introductory lesson at a bookstore in Norman, Okla., where she lived, thought she’d try it. But when she showed up, so many other people were crowded around the table that she didn’t stay. Dengler has been playing for about a year with the Port Townsend group, which started in January 2004, but holds her own against the more experienced players. “It’s not as challenging men-

Misa Fukano, right, takes the last tile during a game of mah-jongg with, from left, Sandy Dengler, Barbara Gray and Arline Lillian the first Monday of the new year. Gray started the mah-jongg group at the senior center in Port Townsend in January seven years ago. tally when you get comfortable with it,” Dengler said as the women pick up and discard tiles at a fast clip. It’s not about luck, Lillian said, but about knowing what to keep, including holding onto hot tiles, ones that someone else is collecting. She has been playing mahjongg for 20 years, she said, including with a group in Bellevue that played for money, which added a more competitive edge to the game. Traditionally a betting game like poker, mah-jongg is played mostly by women in the United States, Lillian said, but in China, it’s a man’s game. When she visited that country five years ago, she watched men playing it. “They squat on the ground and feel the tiles,” she said. “They played a very serious game.” Mah-jongg requires four people, but if only three show up, the women designate the fourth chair as Elvis, drawing tiles for the missing person. Last Monday, Misa Fukano showed up and took over the empty chair. Like Dengler, she has only been playing a year or so but picks up and discards tiles as fast as the others. “You learn by playing,” Dengler said. “It’s a lot of little details.” After each game, the players

put the tiles facedown in the center of the table and reshuffle them, referred to as washing the tiles or twittering the sparrows because it sounds like small birds chirping. In China, the name for the game means sparrow. Mah-jongg can also be used to foretell the future, like Tarot cards, but for the women who play at the community center, it’s about connecting past to present and staying in the game. “It helps the memory,” Gray said. Depending on who wins — and sometimes, the cat wins, meaning no one — the red tile rack, which is used by East, is rotated to another person. The winds shift around the table, the sparrows click, the wall is built, and the game begins again. The mah-jongg group welcomes beginning players. Phone Barbara Gray at 360-385-2087.

The Estate Shop In The Joy Luck Club, the author uses the game of mahjongg as a metaphor for the lives of the players, four Chinese women who immigrated to the United States, and what they kept and what they had to discard along the way. That’s what Jill and John Buhler are doing with their new business, The Estate Shop.

“We’re downsizing in our own life,” John said. “That’s what got us into it.” The shop, which sells small furniture, antiques, books, silver and crystal, is on the ground floor of the building, corner of Monroe and Washington streets, that has been in John’s family for three generations. His grandparents, Sophie and Bill Buhler, and their business partner operated the Buhler and Lafferty beer distributorship in the building, John said, which dates back before 1900. Then, he and the Lundgren brothers opened an athletic club on the upper floors, which is now operated by owners who lease the space. The ground floor, accessible from Monroe Street, has been used as an apartment, a pet grooming business, a beauty salon and a bicycle shop, and part is Jill’s graphic arts studio. But having empty space, the Buhlers decided use it to sell things they had collected over the years. The Estate Shop, 229 Monroe St., is open Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Time, dam removal wait for no one MY THANKS TO Backcountry Horsemen member Sally Coates for submitting a photo of the Peninsula Chapter’s October group ride over the Elwha River Dam at Lake Aldwell. Known as Granny’s Kitchen Ride, the annual event kicked off at a trailhead adjacent to state Highway 112. The trail itself is now part of the Olympic Discovery Trail’s Adventure Route. Traditionally, the ride ended with a group lunch at Granny’s Kitchen (actual name is Granny’s Cafe) off U.S. Highway 101 in Indian Valley. Work on the $350 million removal project has already begun in surrounding areas, yet it’s supposed to intensify in September, when workers begin to dismantle the 108-foot-high Elwha Dam. March 2014 is the targeted completion date. Sally said the ride was a special part of the group’s history because it was “probably our last ride over the dam before it gets demolished.”

Hesitantly, I ask where her Griffiths husband, Larry Johnson, stands in the move. Turns out Larry will be driving the rig for Jeanne and their son, Derrick, 22 months, and then fly home for the start of a “miles apart” marriage. If all goes according to plan, the two will live under one roof again by the end of the summer. “If it works out there, Larry will follow,” she says. In the meantime, Larry, an accomplished equestrian himself and a commercial roofer, will take care of the couple’s home and remaining horses. He’ll also continue as leader of Mane Attraction 4-H (with the help of, as Jeanne says, a group of very supportive parents). “I’ll be flying back for the ClalTime and tide lam County Fair, and we’ll do our When I got wind my neighbor 4-H camp in the fall again,” she says.

The slideshow will be held at the Port Angeles Senior Center, 328 E. Seventh St., at 7 p.m. It is the first of four slideshows in the Peninsula Trails Coalition Adventure Travel Series. An admission fee of $5 will go toward the purchase of tools, equipment and lunches for volunteers who maintain and build the Olympic Discovery Trail. Children 12 and younger are free. Midway Island is a 2.4-square-mile atoll, near the northwestern end of the Hawaiian Islands, about one third of the way between Honolulu and Tokyo. Perhaps best known as the site of the Battle of Midway in World War II, the atoll is now a bird and wildlife sanctuary with very few residents or visitors. “The wildlife viewing in Midway is comparable to Antarctica and the Galapagos in that visitors get very close to the wildlife but with one very significant advantage,” Elston Hill said. “The number of visitors to the atoll is very small, and contact with the wildlife is a 24-hour experience and extraordinarily intimate.” For more information, phone 360-452-8641 or 360-808-4223.

The event is presented by the Mythsinger Foundation and will be hosted by Brian Rohr. She will tell her favorite, timeless creation story in which the love of animals and the living world is expressed. She will then share her personal family’s myth about how her ancestors first set foot on the shores of Ireland. There will also be an open mic session, but stories must be told, not read. Suggested donation for the event is $10. For more information, e-mail Rohr at brohrpr@


PORT TOWNSEND — Sheila Kelly, author of Treadwell Gold: An Alaska Saga of Riches and Ruin, will speak at the Jefferson County Historical Society’s First Friday lecture at 7 p.m. Friday. The lecture will be held in the Port Townsend City Council Chamber, 250 Madison St. Kelly Kelly first heard stories about the Treadwell, Alaska, gold mines from her father and aunts who were raised in Treadwell at the turn of the 20th century. She interviewed other people who had lived there and scoured archives and collections of historical photos in museums, libraries and personal scrapbooks. Her walks among the present day ruins of Treadwell, now a ghost town on Douglas Island, spurred her to bring the people and the place back to life in her book. Kelly was born in Spokane and earned degrees from Gonzaga University and the University of Washington. She has been an active environmentalist on the local and national level. Kelly lives in Seattle and serves on the board of the Charlotte Martin Foundation which funds programs for wildlife and habitat preservation. Admission is by donation, which supports historical society programs. For a complete schedule of 2011 First Friday Lectures, visit JCHSMuseum. org and click on “Upcoming Events.”

Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish. Add the soup, rice, thyme, salt, pepper and water. Stir to combine. Cover the baking dish tightly with foil and bake for 40 minutes or until the rice has absorbed all the liquid. Uncover and sprinkle with both cheeses. Bake for another 5 minutes, or until the cheeses have melted.

_______ Heat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray.
