Landslide win for PT school levy Superintendent says ‘vote totals show . . . trust’
Chimacum soars to victory
By Charlie Bermant
By Charlie Bermant
PORT TOWNSEND — A four-year replacement levy to subsidize educational programs for the Port Townsend School District was headed for a landslide victory, with more than 66 percent of voters approving the measure, after initial votes were counted Tuesday night. “This is really exciting,” said Superintendent Gene Laes at the Jefferson County Courthouse shortly after vote totals were announced. “It says a lot about the commitment of Port Townsend that they are giving us this kind of support in tough times, to give us the level of support they showed us.” Laes, now the permanent superintendent, was hired as interim superintendent last year with the levy passage as one of his main tasks. “The vote totals show the level of trust that the voters have given me,” he said. “I’m going to meet that level of trust and move Port Townsend Schools forward.” Of the 5,871 votes counted in the district, 3,914, or 66.64 percent, voted in favor of the measure, while 1,959, or 33.36 percent, voted against it.
CHIMACUM — Voters resoundingly approved a three-year replacement levy for Chimacum schools, subsidizing the programs that are not funded by the state but are essential to the schools’ operation, according to supporters. “We are very appreciative of the support,” said Superintendent Craig Downs, who had come to the Jefferson County Courthouse in Port Townsend to hear the vote totals. “These are really tough times, and the people are voting to essentially tax themselves, and we appreciate that highly.” Of the 4,380 votes counted in the district, 2,627, or 59.98 percent, voted in favor of the measure while 1,753, or 40.02 percent, voted against it. Voter turnout in the district was 53.31 percent, with 4,395 voters returning ballots out of the 8,244 mailed.

Voter turnout in the district was 54.35 percent of the ballots mailed to registered voters. Jefferson County Auditor Donna Eldridge said about 350 votes were on hand but uncounted. It was not known how many included votes from the Port Townsend School District, the Chimacum School District or a proposed countywide
sales tax increase. The next count is scheduled for noon Friday. The property tax levy, which replaces a levy that expires this year, will collect $3.1 million its first year in 2012 and about 4 percent more each year to $3.4 million in 2015. Turn
Man convicted of double murder files appeal By Julie McCormick

Michael J. Pierce has filed an appeal of his 2009 conviction for the murders of Pat and Janice Yarr. Pierce, 35, was convicted March 2009 of shooting the Quilcene couple to death in the course of a robbery, then setting fire to their Boulton Farm Road home. The former Sequim and Quilcene resident and Peninsula College student was identified as using the Yarrs’ bank debit card the same day they were killed. He was sentenced in May to 118 years in prison for the double

Restraining order won by Zuckerberg FACEBOOK FOUNDER MARK Zuckerberg has obtained a temporary restraining order against a California man accused of stalking him, his girlfriend and his sister. A Santa Clara County Superior Court judge Feb. 1 ordered 31-year-old Pradeep Zuckerberg Manukonda of Milpitas to stay away from Zuckerberg and stop contacting him. Manukonda tried to contact Zuckerberg numerous times in December via letter, e-mail and Facebook, including more than 20 times in one day, Facebook security officer Todd Sheets said in a court declaration. Manukonda also left a note on Zuckerberg’s car
and was later spotted outside his house, Sheets said. In the letters included as evidence in the court file, Manukonda pleads with Zuckerberg for a few minutes of his time. Although his requests are vague, he appears to be seeking money to pay for medical treatment for his mother.

The Austrian government contended that Mrs. Altmann’s aunt, who died in 1925, had willed it to the Austrian national gallery. However, Schoenberg argued the claim was invalid, and the family’s art collection was plundered more than a decade later by the Nazis.

In 2006, an Austrian mediation panel awarded the five paintings to Mrs. Altmann and four other heirs, ending the nearly eight-year legal battle.

Briefly: Nation Obama seeks $53 billion for high-speed rail WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is calling for a six-year, $53 billion spending plan for high-speed rail, as he seeks to use infrastructure spending to jump-start job creation. An initial $8 billion in spending will be part of the budget plan Obama is set to release Monday. If Congress approves the Obama plan, the money would go toward developing or improving trains that travel up to 250 mph, and connecting existing rail lines to new projects. The White House wouldn’t say where the money for the rest of the program would come from, though it’s likely Obama would seek funding in future budgets or transportation bills. Obama’s push for high-speed rail spending is part of his broad goal of creating jobs in the short-term and increasing American competitiveness for the future through new funding for infrastructure, education and innovation. During last month’s State of the Union address, Obama said he wanted to give 80 percent of Americans access to high-speed rail within 25 years.
Spending halt? WASHINGTON — One of the House’s top Republicans
says he believes the chamber will soon vote to block spending for President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor told reporters Tuesday that by the time the House approves a government-wide spending bill for this year, it will end up prohibiting the use of money for the overhaul. The House is expected to debate that legislation shortly. Republicans have opposed the overhaul as a costly, biggovernment overreach. Spending for government programs expires March 4 unless Congress approves new legislation providing extra funds.
Snowmelt leaves mess NEW YORK — The mountains of snow that have covered the Northeastern landscape for the past month and a half are finally melting, revealing oozing lumps of garbage, gaping potholes, bicycles, rat-infested sofas, discarded Christmas trees — even bodies. More than 57 inches of snow has fallen on New York City this winter, its snowiest January ever. Residents welcomed warmer weather this week before an expected plunge back into the freezer, but they weren’t so thrilled about the side effects. “This is disgusting. I can’t tell if it’s snow or garbage or some sick other thing,” said Karen James, 34, finding discarded bills, paper cups and sludge in the shrinking mound of snow and ice covering her car. “This stinks.” Two bodies were found in vehicles last week.

White House pushing to regain Egypt line Ex-envoy’s comments stir confusion over U.S. stance By Matthew Lee and Ben Feller
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Struggling to clear up conflicting messages that frustrated even President Barack Obama, the White House worked aggressively on Tuesday to dispel any notion it was easing pressure on President Hosni Mubarak or abandoning those protesting for freedoms. Much of the White House ire centered on comments made by Frank Wisner, the retired U.S. diplomat who was dispatched by Obama to help nudge Mubarak out of office, but then stunned Obama officials by saying Satur-
day that Mubarak’s continued leadership was critical as Egypt worked through reforms. Obama himself showed his frustration about what Wisner said, officials said privately. Yet part of the confusion has stemmed from the government’s own message, too. Comments by some State Department officials have been widely interpreted as diverging from the White House stand, particularly by raising doubts about whether it was wise for Mubarak to resign now, as protesters in his repressed nation demand. What’s more, White House officials were frustrated about some
of the news reporting on events. The overall concern was that the narrative was getting cloudy and certainly not focused on the events in Egypt. So on Tuesday, when Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs was asked about State Department comments on the risks if Mubarak leaves hastily, he bristled. “I want to be clear,” Gibbs said. “I speak for the president of the United States of America. We are not here to determine who leads Egypt and when they lead Egypt.” The White House also released a firm statement saying Vice President Joe Biden, in a call to Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman, made clear again that the United States wants an orderly transition to a new day in Egypt that is “prompt, meaningful, peaceful, and legitimate.”

Susan Maushart, second from left, joins her children, from left, Anni, Sussy and Bill (with cat Hazel) as they play a board game together in Perth, Australia, before they moved to the U.S. Maushart’s children frequently use acronyms like “ILY!” and “LOL.”
OMG, when did we start talking like txt msgs? By Jocelyn Noveck The Associated Press
NEW YORK — “ILY!” Susan Maushart’s 16-year-old daughter often calls out over her shoulder as she leaves the house. Sure, actual words would be better. But Mom knows not to complain. “A mother of teenagers is pathetically grateful for an `I love you’ no matter what form it takes,” she observes. Then there are the various forms of “LOL” that her teens use in regular parlance - it’s become a conjugable verb by now. And of course, there’s the saltier acronym used by son Bill: “WTF, Mom?!” But before you judge, note that former VP candidate Sarah Palin just used that one in a TV interview. Acronyms have been around for years. But with the advent of text and Twitter-language, it certainly feels like we’re speaking in groups of capital letters a lot more. It’s a question that intrigues linguists and other language aficionados — even though they’ll tell you they have absolutely no concrete research on it. “It’s fascinating,” says Scott
Kiesling, a socio-linguist and professor at the University of Pittsburgh. “What’s interesting to me as a linguist is figuring out which words get picked up, and why. What is it that makes OMG and WTF and LOL so useful that they spread from the written to the spoken form?” One possibility, Kiesling proposes, is that some of these acronyms actually become a whole new thought, expressing something different than the words that form them.
A comparison For example: “You wouldn’t say, ‘OMG, that person just jumped off a cliff,’” he explains. “But you’d say, ‘OMG, do you see those red pants that person is wearing?’” Which brings us to WTF, an acronym that needs no translation. When Palin used the expression recently in a Fox News interview — twice in two sentences, actually — some pundits were a little shocked. (Palin was playing on the president’s “Win the Future” message in his State of the Union speech.)
“That’s going to be a tough one for her to come back from and explain,” remarked conservative commentator Pat Buchanan on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” Host Joe Scarborough simply shook his head and said: “Not very presidential.” But the chatter died down quickly. “I haven’t seen any big blowup,” says Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania and an expert on political communication. “It was misplaced humor. But I assume she thought it was clever and thus would not be judged.” But WTF seems to have become a winking way of saying something with a little edge, a little bite, without being truly offensive. It can also be a good icebreaker with an audience. “I do a lot of public speaking,” says Maushart, the mother of three, who is also an author (the recent Winter of our Disconnect.) “And if there is one utterance that I always know will get a laugh, it is WTF. It establishes that you are kind of with it. It brings an instant laugh.” Remember the word “groovy”?

The space shuttle Endeavour will leave April 19 for a two-week mission to the International Space Station, and astronaut Mark Kelly announced last week that he’ll be aboard and expects his wife, who was shot in the forehead, to see him off. Dr. Gerard Francisco said doctors would have to make decisions on many medical issues for that to happen.
President Barack Obama has finally done what millions of fellow Americans are still struggling to achieve — he’s given up smoking. “Yes, he has,” his wife, Michelle, said Tuesday at the White House when asked whether he had conquered a nicotine habit that began as a teenager. “It’s been almost a year,” she said, offering no details on exactly when or how he quit. But is the breakup with tobacco final? One in five adults, about 46 million people, still smoke, and brain research shows that nicotine is powerfully addictive.
Rod Blagojevich’s name resurfaced in the Chicago mayoral race Tuesday when his attorneys named leading candidate and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel in a motion claiming key evidence is missing in the impeached Illinois governor’s upcoming retrial on corruption charges. Blagojevich’s motion alleges a record of a phone call between a top Blagojevich aide and Emanuel is among “mysteriously missing” evidence. Blagojevich’s attorneys asked a judge to order prosecutors to turn over records of the call, saying it would strengthen the former governor’s claim of innocence.
Hungary’s notorious octogenarian thief is not ready for retirement. The 84-year-old woman, known as “Flying Gizi,” whose criminal record goes back to the 1950s, is again in custody for suspected theft, police said Tuesday. Fejer County police spokeswoman Agnes R. Szabo said the burglar, whose real name is Gizella Bodnar, is suspected of taking some 15,000 forints ($75) from a home in Bicske, a town in central Hungary. Bodnar has been convicted of more than 20 crimes and has spent nearly 18 years in prison.

Closures, repairs of trail discussed Peninsula Daily News
Marathon OK this year It won’t be impacted this year. Kathryn Neal, city engineering manager, said Friday that closures could impact portions of the trail from the former mill site to the hotel anywhere between six months and a year. Cutler said after the meeting that he didn’t want to comment on the possible duration of the closures since that won’t be fully fleshed out until after a construction contract is awarded this summer. It’s also not yet known when the closures will start. Construction will begin sometime after late October at the intersection of Oak Street and Railroad Avenue and at the trail just east of the intersection of Lincoln

A pedestrian walks down a section of the Waterfront Trail in Port Angeles on Tuesday. Street and Railroad Avenue. At those locations, the city’s contractor will begin “sliplining” new sewer lines into the industrial waterline. From downtown to the Rayonier site, the city’s plan calls for seven pits to be dug so that crews can continue to pull the pipes through the waterline, which is no longer in use past the Nippon paper mill. The pipes will connect with a nearly 5-million-gallon tank the city acquired from Rayonier and its wastewater treatment plant nearby. The tank will temporarily store untreated sewage and storm water when the plant is at capacity, allowing the city to reduce its sewage overflows from anywhere between 30 and 110 a year to slightly over one on average. On the west side of Port Angeles, an undeveloped portion of the trail will be temporarily closed this year at Milwaukee Drive and 18th Street so that a sewer line from the Lower Elwha Klallam reservation can be connected with the city’s sewers. That work is expected to start shortly, Cutler said, but he didn’t have a schedule yet
from the National Park Service, which is handling that project because it’s intended to replace the tribe’s septic tanks, which are expected to become unusable after Elwha River dams come down beginning in September. There was also a fair amount of good news. Storm damage on the trail east of the Rayonier site should be repaired this year, Cutler said. Also, a new Ennis Creek bridge will be built over the next few years that will reroute the trail away from the treatment plant. Rich James, Clallam County transportation program manager, said that the northern loop around Lake Crescent should be done in 2012 and that 4,300 feet of trail will be constructed west of the lake this summer. The city also plans to improve the route the trail takes through downtown as part of its waterfront development plan. A bridge over Dry Creek in west Port Angeles was opened last month, although the tribe’s sewer line still needs to be placed underneath it.

Small quake in San Juans shakes Peninsula, Victoria Peninsula Daily News and news services
FRIDAY HARBOR — A small earthquake in the San Juan Islands rattled the North Olympic Peninsula, Victoria and parts of Northwest Washington at 8:36 a.m. Tuesday. The quake — measuring a modest 3.2 in magnitude — was centered beneath San Juan Island about five miles west-northwest of the island’s town of Friday Harbor at a depth of 31.6 miles, according to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network at the University of Washington in Seattle. No damage or injuries were reported. In Port Angeles and Victoria, residents said the quake felt like a strong side-to-side jolt and only lasted for a second or two. “A quick bounce, like something falling over,” said one Port Angeles homeowner who called the Peninsula Daily News. Keith Ross felt the quake at his office next to Ebey’s Prairie in Coupeville on Whidbey Island. “I knew right away it was an earthquake,” Ross said. “It was just a short 2-, 3-second rolling. About three rolls, and it was done.” The tremor’s epicenter was 14 miles northeast of Victoria. “I’ve lived in Victoria for four years and never felt [an earthquake] until this morning,” said Kelly Young in a

PORT ANGELES — Olympic Discovery Trail users were given a mixed bag of good and bad news Tuesday. City of Port Angeles and Clallam County staff told an audience of about 30 people at City Hall that expansions of the trail will occur over the next few years, but also outlined how portions in Port Angeles will be closed for long periods of time, possibly putting the 2012 Olympic Discovery Marathon in jeopardy. The major closures will occur in Port Angeles from the former Rayonier mill site to the Red Lion Hotel as the city’s approximately $40 million project to get control of its sewage overflows gets under way. Glenn Cutler, city public works and utilities director, said that construction will occur during June 2012 — when the marathon, which uses the trail, is under way — and possibly during June 2013. “I know you probably aren’t going to be able to run a marathon at that point over that location,” he said. Port Angeles Marathon Association President Larry Little, reached by phone after the meeting, said he couldn’t comment at this time whether the marathon will be able to continue next year or use a detour. “I don’t want to make any comments without having some more information about what’s going on,” he said.

Oregon quake A magnitude 5.2 earthquake struck off the Oregon coast at 2:02 p.m. Tuesday but was far enough away that it was unlikely anyone on land felt it. The epicenter was located along the Juan de Fuca plate fault line about 145 miles west of Coos Bay, which is about 350 miles south of Port Angeles. The location is an active quake region. A similar quake measuring 4.7 hit near the same location just hours earlier Tuesday.

Sequim planner touches on downtown plan for Sequim By Jeff Chew
Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — Improving the city’s downtown core is all about attracting more people there. That’s what interim city Planning Director Joe Irvin said Tuesday, addressing more than 70 Irvin attending the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce’s luncheon at SunLand Golf and Country Club. “I think it’s the people,” Irvin said. “When you have people there . . . that’s the real important thing.”
Proposals so far Irvin touched on what residents and consultants have proposed so far for downtown, ranging from denser small housing and townhouses to traffic-calming and pedestrian and bicycling improvements. Consultants have recommended about 400 new housing units to downtown over the next 10 years, he said, with 48 units being singlefamily homes, 116 townhouses, 109 garden apartments and 116 mid-rise

be further developed, he said. A woonerf is a street where pedestrians and cyclists have legal priority over motorists. Ultimately, Irvin said, it is hoped that an improved downtown will slow about $37 million of annual retail “leakage” that leaves the Sequim-area market for others.
Focal point Other issues brought to the city’s attention, he said, include finding a focal point in downtown Sequim that serves as a gathering place. “We need to find a way to locate City Hall downtown,” Irvin said. Finding a commercial truck route around downtown is another city challenge, he said. Downtown boundaries are from Fir Street, north, to U.S. Highway 101, south. The boundary from the west is Fifth Avenue, and Brown Road is east.
City Council-hired Seattle consultants LMN will explain the recommendations at 7 p.m. at the same location, followed by a question-andanswer session from 7:45 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Irvin recalled what he and other city leaders learned during an intense two-day workshop downtown where more than 150 attended. Residents suggested improving the Bell Creek corridor and Pioneer Park. They also asked to “activate” ________ the city’s alleyways, making them more attractive and Sequim-Dungeness Valley Edipedestrian-friendly. tor Jeff Chew can be reached at “Woonerfs,” such as that 360-681-2391 or at jeff.chew@ at Seal Street downtown, can peninsuladailynews.com.

Briefly . . . Van De Wege to co-chair heritage unit OLYMPIA — Rep. Kevin Van De Wege, D-Sequim, is now the co-chairman of the Heritage Caucus, a position he took over from retired House majority leader Lynn Kessler. The bipartisan Heritage Caucus has been around for more than 20 years. It brings together legislators, elected officials, representatives from the public and nonprofit sectors, as well as citizens, to discuss pending legislation and policy issues related to state culture, heritage and the arts. The goal is to keep people informed of how pending legislation could affect state cultural and historical organizations or sites. “When a historic site is endangered, citizens tend to find innovative ways to save it, even when state grants are not as readily available,” said Van De Wege, one of three legislators representing the North Olympic Peninsula in Olympia. “There is a real awareness of the value of our state’s cultural heritage.” The other co-chair is Sen. Jim Honeyford, R-Sunnyside.
Caretakers needed PORT TOWNSEND — Jefferson County Parks and Recreation is seeking caretakers for H.J. Carroll Park, located on state Highway 19 between Port Townsend and Chimacum. Caretakers are responsible for park supervision and do a small amount of maintenance work. “The ideal caretakers are two people who want to make a difference in the community, can provide excellent customer service to all park patrons, have a positive attitude, enjoy people, are conscientious, enjoy working outdoors in a beautiful setting, are active, own a newer RV, are excellent communicators and can commit to six months,” according to the agency. Water, septic and garbage services are provided. Power, propane, phone and cable are available on-site, but are the responsibility of the caretakers. The start date is flexible. Screening of applications begins Friday. A successful background check is required prior to placement. For more information, contact Matt Tyler, Jefferson County Parks and Recreation manager, at 360-3859129, e-mail mtyler@ countyrec.com or visit www. countyrec.com.
Threat charges SEATTLE — A California man charged with making threatening phone calls to the office of U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott of Seattle has pleaded not guilty. Charles Turner Habermann of Palm Springs appeared in federal court in Seattle to enter the plea Tuesday. An FBI complaint said Habermann called the Seattle Democrat’s office in December and left two messages, each about four minutes long, after seeing him on television. Transcripts said he began each with his name and phone number and went on to threaten to kill the congressman over his opposition to extending tax cuts for the wealthy. Habermann reportedly told investigators he has a $3 million trust fund. One of the conditions of his pretrial release is that he not withdraw more than $12,000 per month from the fund.

PORT ANGELES — To align itself for $1.7 million in federal transportation funds, Clallam County on Tuesday amended its transportation plan to include two more funded projects. The three county commissioners added the seismic retrofit of the McDonald Creek bridge on Old Olympic Highway and scour repairs on the foundation of the Ward bridge across the Dungeness River on Woodcock Road to the funded category in its six-year transportation improvement program.
No public testimony No public testimony was taken in a public hearing on the amendments Tuesday. Both projects will be paid for through state-administered federal highway funds. In order to legally use federal funding, the county has to add both projects to the six-year transportation improvement program, which becomes part of the annual construction program, Tyler told commissioners. “So this is the procedure by which we do that,” he said.
Costs of projects
The estimated cost of the seismic retrofit of the McDonald Creek bridge is $808,000, according to the revised planning document.

Seattle commission President Bill Bryant said his agency wants to work with ports across the state to increase exports and jobs. Moses Lake operates the Grant County International Airport and has a thriving industrial park.

PORT ANGELES — Clallam County resident Norma Turner told commissioners Tuesday that consolidating the various law enforcement agencies of the North Olympic Peninsula would help the budget crisis. “Unfortunately, they seem to be kind of balancing the budget on the backs of the poor and disenfranchised,” Turner said. “I would like to speak out against the concept that each entity Turner — local, state and federal — are acting so they function in independent spheres. I would encourage you to look at how do all of those different budgets integrate.” Turner described “an inordinate number of law enforcement agencies for this small county.” “We have a sheriff’s department, three police departments, a State Patrol, Fish & Wildlife agents, Border Patrol, National Park rangers, immigration and customs, and the tribal law enforcements,” Turner said.
“I would like to speak out against the concept that each entity — local, state and federal — are acting so they function in independent spheres. I would encourage you to look at how do all of those different budgets integrate.”

Clallam County Sheriff Bill Benedict declined to respond to Turner’s remarks in the open meeting. However, he did speak in private with Turner for about 10 minutes after the meeting.
Later Tuesday, Benedict said Turner’s ideas have some merit but need to be studied by city councils and boards of county commissioners. Commissioner Mike Doherty said the county and the city of Port Angeles are already engaged in looking for efficiencies that would streamline local government.

after the hearing. “It’s called scour critical.” The repairs are scheduled to be completed in 2012. The six-year transportation plan is updated each December. The annual construction program is derived from the six-year road plan. “These were competitive projects,” Tyler said. “They have to compete with other similar projects of a similar magnitude.”
Appointments In other news, Nancy Messmer was appointed to represent District No. 3 on the Heritage Advisory Board.
Commissioner Mike Doherty said Messmer, who lives in Sekiu, will be a “great asset” to the board. Elizabeth Strait and Laurie Davies were reappointed to the Clallam County Fair Advisory Board for terms expiring in September 2014. Arlene Engel was reappointed to the Peninsula Regional Support Network Advisory Committee. Engel, who will serve through 2013, also is an Olympic Medical Center commissioner. An agreement with the Army Corps of Engineers to study the feasibility of the Lower Dungeness Dike setback project was postponed for additional legal review.
Commissioners also authorized a line of credit from the opportunity fund not to exceed $151,000 for the Peninsula Housing Authority’s Eklund Heights walking path project. County funding is contingent on full funding from other sources and the letting of contracts. Commissioners have the Peninsula Housing Authority to hire local contractors. The Opportunity Fund Board of Directors recommended the line of credit in a Jan. 24 meeting.

Stabbing pain may be trigeminal neuralgia. Now there’s a new, non-surgical solution. If you have been diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia (TN) or if you have experienced severe facial pain that has not responded to treatment, we may be able to help. TN is a disorder affecting the trigeminal nerve. In its early stages, it may be confused with a variety of dental problems. It causes severe pain that makes talking, chewing, – even smiling – extremely difficult. South Sound Gamma Knife at St. Joseph provides help to TN suffers. Gamma Knife “radiosurgery” is non-invasive, painless and effective. It directs pinpoint energy to the nerve site to disrupt pain signals and offers significant to complete relief of symptoms. Gamma Knife also successfully treats other disorders of the brain, from movement disorders to tumors. If you think you may have TN, see a neurologist.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — New climate modeling research reinforces a bleak outlook for another high-elevation species, the wolverine. A scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo., said wolverines will be in trouble if climate trends continue. One reason: A warmer climate will result in less snow at high elevations. Wolverines rely on deep snow to protect their young in their dens. Wolverines are the largest member of the weasel family and are ferocious predators. They inhabit cool climates at high latitudes and high elevations. No more than 300 wolverines exist in the lower 48, including Washington state, with recent sightings in Colorado and California. Peninsula Daily News and The Associated Press
Clallam amending road plan for bridge repairs
PORT ANGELES — A proposed rule that would impose penalties on pilots presumed to have committed airspace violations when overflying marine wildlife sanctuaries usurps the FAA’s authority to regulate airspace, improperly creates a new class of airspace restrictions and would make it difficult or impossible for a pilot to defend against an alleged violation, according to the national Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has proposed restricting low-altitude flights over the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary and the Channel Islands, Monterey Bay and Gulf of the Farallones national marine sanctuaries in California The Frederick, Md.-based nonprofit political organization said the rule offers no workable method of notifying pilots of proposed nonstandard airspace restrictions. “The proposal also would enact the troubling presumption that any pilot observed flying lower than the established altitude within a particular zone had violated sanctuary regulations,” said the AOPA. AOPA expressed concerns to the NOAA about how a rule would affect airports directly under or in the vicinity of the restrictive airspace areas: “The Copalis State Airport is immediately south of the Copalis National Wildlife Refuge, part of the
Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary. “The airport is the only public-use airport in Washington state where landing on the beach is legal. “Currently pilots conducting normal operations to and from the airport fly their traffic patterns as designated by the FAA, which puts them at altitudes lower than the 2,000 feet above ground level promulgated in the rule.” AOPA requested that current flight procedures “continue in place and be widely disseminated so that pilots are aware of them and will follow them, thus preserving their safety and the sanctuary necessary for the marine wildlife.”

Logs key to Elwha River restoration By Paul Gottlieb
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — It seems to some like a perfect chance for a cash-strapped state like Washington to make some money. When the two Elwha River dams are torn down beginning in September, can logs that build up at the Elwha River bridge on U.S. Highway 101 be sold commercially to benefit the state’s taxpayers? In a word, no. State fish and wildlife managers say the logs are key to the restoration of the Elwha River and are far more important for fish habitat and forest regeneration than they would be as fodder for the commercial market. The state Department of Fish & Wildlife codified that mandate in the state Department of Transportation’s five-year hydraulic permit that allows Transportation to unjam certain bridges that are clogged with logs, Chris Keegan, Transportation’s Olympic Region operations engineer, said Tuesday.
Keep logs in river “In the permit, we have that we will keep it in the river system,” Keegan said. “It says that during times of high flow, we can pick them up and set them down on the other side and let them continue on through.” The cornerstone of the $351.4 million river restoration project is the $26.9 million dismantling of the Glines Canyon and Elwha dams, intended to unblock the waterway to provide passage for and replenish 10 stocks of anadromous salmon and trout.

When the dams come down beginning in September, waterborne logs will rush downstream, scraping away at the earthen banks where the Highway 101 bridge crosses the river, potentially undermining the road just west of its intersection with state Highway 112. Built in 1925, the 450-foot-long bridge will encounter riverflows and buffeting by woody debris in a manner never seen in its 86 years once the dams, completed in 1913 and 1927, are brought down and their two reservoirs — Lake Mills behind Glines and Lake Aldwell behind Elwha — are drained.
Move logs around bridge Plans are for an excavator to pluck stuck debris from one side of the arched bridge and drop the stumps and logs on the other side of the span to continue their journey downstream, Keegan said.

County, it is 8.4 percent. The Jefferson Transit board — made up of the three county commissioners and two Port Townsend City Council members — placed the sales tax measure on the ballot, saying that the anticipated $1.1 million it would bring in annually, beginning in September, would allow the public bus agency to maintain existing services.
Layoffs without revenue
A cheerful Transit board chairwoman Catharine Robinson, who is a Port Townsend City councilwoman, said she was “very happy” with the early voter showing at the courthouse Tuesday night after the first mail ballots were counted. “I’m relieved because we will not have to cut service, and we won’t have to lay anybody off,” Robinson said at the courthouse Tuesday night. The support throughout the county was “very gratifying,” she said. George Randels, Port Townsend
Raise to 9 percent
The proposed increase to 9 percent would raise 3 cents on each $10 purchase or 30 cents on each $100 — about $1.1 million needed to maintain services, including on Sundays, officials said. In November, voters approved an increase of Jefferson County’s tax rate to 8.7 percent, voting on a measure placed on the ballot by the county commissioners.

ferson Transit. Jefferson Transit board members has already planned for service cutbacks while hoping that voters approve a measure that will make them unnecessary. The board approved a 2011 budget Dec. 28 that did not include projections of revenue from the proposed tax increase. That meant decreasing public bus operation from 450 to 350 hours per week, resulting in cutting back routes and eliminating Sunday service, Hanson said. Transit board members late last year approved operating and capital fund budgets of about $5.1 million that will mean layoffs and service cuts. 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.

Peninsula Daily News for Wednesday, February 9, 2011
Stumped over clearing land for growing Though it may seem like our dark and dreary winter will never end, there are rumors of spring in the air. While birdwatching Pat between rain squalls, I Neal thought I saw the smallest bird ever. It turned out to be a mosquito the size of a small bird. It was a good sign that bug season could not be far off. Then I observed the first green shoots of the budding Indian plum blossom. That’s all it took to get my gardening juices flowing. Gardening may be a polite term for my primitive methods. It’s a practice anthropologists call slash and burn agriculture. It was once called “stump ranching” on our North Olympic Peninsula. In the early years of our history, the forests were considered an inexhaustible obstacle to
farming. You might start out gardening with a raw piece of land after the loggers got done with it. All you had left was a crop of stumps and roots too thick to run a plow through. You could plant between the stumps, but they usually had to go. Techniques for getting rid of the stumps were as varied as the stump ranchers themselves. I learned from the best. There was the “hog” method of stump clearing. You drilled in and around the stumps and poured molasses in the holes. The hogs would root out the stumps to get the molasses. It could take a lot of time and molasses to get your land cleared. It’s a lot faster but more dangerous to pull the stumps out by mechanical means. In the old days there were horse-powered stump pullers. You rigged the team to a contraption of cables and pulleys that could bust loose at any time — with tragic consequences for the horses. It was faster and even more dangerous to blast the stumps. As luck would have it, one of
my old stump-ranching buddies was a powder monkey. What would be classified as a terrorist threat in the political correctness of our age was considered a helpful neighbor back then. Still, blasting stumps with dynamite had its challenges. It took a strong nerve to approach a charge that failed to go off for whatever reason. Waiting for dynamite to go off was not a job you wanted to rush, but it was all worthwhile when you achieved ignition and the stump was launched into the heavens. Facing a shortage of hogs, molasses, horses, cable and dynamite, I was left to dig and burn the stumps out. Unfortunately, I’ve never been able to find a shovel that fit my hand. I only averaged about one stump per year. Then it was time to turn the soil. This proved difficult since the remaining soil was mostly rock. The powder monkey suggested setting off a series of small, quarter-stick charges under a covering of heavy mill canvas that would loosen the rocks and hold whatever soil was left after the blast.
Peninsula Voices Ticket price As a former president and board member of Olympic Theatre Arts, I feel it necessary to answer the rant expressed in Sunday’s PDN [“Rants & Raves,” Commentary] concerning the ticket price for the musical “Nunsense.” In order to bring musical comedies such as the musical “Nunsense,” it is necessary to pay a large royalty fee to the theatrical agency as well as all the expenses that a show of this caliber demands, such as costumes, lights, set construction and props. Also, the cost to heat and light the theater has to be taken into consideration when setting the price of the tickets. Also, for each show produced at OTA, preview night is always half price. I hope this helps explain

For details, see the advertisement on Page C2, or visit www. peninsuladailynews.com anytime. Peninsula Daily News Lacking the nerve for gardening with dynamite, I dug the rocks out by hand until there was only a solid layer of clay where the stumps had been. Then, to prepare the soil for planting, I covered my garden with a layer of spawned-out salmon, seaweed and silt. That’s a practice you could be arrested for these days, even if you could find enough spawnedout salmon to do the job. Unfortunately, most of my stump-ranching tips were from

Other biomass uses The PDN has kept us informed with the project of the local mill utilizing a forest biomass that has been going to waste. Any source of energy has to be looked at whether it’s fossil fuels, wind, solar or nuclear. There are objections to the biomass project by enviro groups. Though I don’t think they will be successful in stopping the project, we have to commend them for
their concern about the air pollution factor. My thoughts on biomass projects on land and mainly the ocean, where I intend my last endeavor to be, is to contribute what I can to the future of mariculture — farming the seas. We have all seen the commercial where a
healthy farm boy stands in the middle of a field holding what appears to be a sugar beet, and claims it to be a sustainable energy source. Those knowledgeable would question the source of fertilizer. Green manure and organic fertilizers just can’t be wasted on internalcombustion engines.
gardeners who did their farming early in the last century. Gardening has changed a lot since then. Still, when I see that first mosquito, I get an overwhelming urge to set a stump on fire.

We have a hungry world, more than seven billion. A large amount of people throughout the world look at the use of food stuff for fuel as almost criminal. Biomass can be turned under to build up a humus soil rendering it more tillable. Another method can be breaking down the biomass where it heats up from the decomposition process contained in pits or bins where the heat can be trapped and transferred to greenhouse growing. A certain amount of methane can be siphoned off for other energy needs, such as heating or air conditioning. Dennis Dehmalo, Sequim
Cable news I love the letters about cable news. If you actually go to the “TV by the numbers,” you
can see the real ratings for about anything on TV. You’ll see that of the individual shows on Cable News Networks, the Fox channel outdraws CNN and MSNBC by about 2 to1. But if you check out the total household viewership you’ll see that CNN/Headline News actually has the most households. Actually the latest figure I saw showed CNN with 100 million households, and MSNBC and Fox had about 99 million households. That’s why Fox can claim it’s the “most watched” network and CNN can say “more Americans get their news from CNN than any other source.” You ever wonder how both those statements can be true? Now you know the rest of the story. Sterrett D. Metheny, Port Angeles
Is the economy turning? Think again The Ronald Reagan crowd loved to talk about morning in America. For millions of individuals and families, perhaps the majority, it’s more like twilight — with nighttime coming on fast. Look out the window. Bob More and Herbert more Americans are being left behind in an economy that is being divided ever more starkly between the haves and the have-nots. Not only are millions of people jobless and millions more underemployed, but more and more of the so-called fringe benefits and public services that help make life livable, or even bearable, in a modern society are being put to the torch. Employer-based pensions, paid vacations, health benefits and the like are going the way of phone booths and VCRs. As poverty increases and reliable employment becomes less and less the norm, the dwindling
number of workers with any sort of job security or guaranteed pensions (think teachers and other modestly compensated public employees) are being viewed with increasing contempt. How dare they enjoy a modicum of economic comfort? It turns out that a lot of those jobs were never so secure, after all. As the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities tells us: “At least 44 states and the District of Columbia have reduced overall wages paid to state workers by laying off workers, requiring them to take unpaid leave (furloughs), freezing hew hires or similar actions. “State and local governments have eliminated 407,000 jobs since August 2008, federal data show.” We have not faced up to the scale of the economic crisis that still confronts the United States. Standards of living for the people on the wrong side of the economic divide are being ratcheted lower and will remain that way for many years to come. Forget the fairy tales being spun by politicians in both parties — that somehow they can impose service cuts that are drastic enough to bring federal and local budgets into balance while

at the same time developing economic growth strong enough to support a robust middle class. It would take a Bernie Madoff to do that. In the real world, schools and libraries are being closed and other educational services are being curtailed. Police officers are being fired. Access to health services for poor families is being restricted. “At least 29 states and the District of Columbia,” according to the budget center, “are cutting medical, rehabilitative, home care or other services needed by lowincome people who are elderly or have disabilities, or are significantly increasing the cost of these services.” For a variety of reasons, there are not enough tax revenues being generated to pay for the basic public services that one would expect in an advanced country like the United States. The rich are not shouldering their fair share of the tax burden. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq continue to consume an insane amount of revenue. And there are not enough jobs available at decent enough pay to ease some of the demand for public services while at the same
time increasing the amount of taxes paid by ordinary workers. The U.S. cannot cut its way out of this crisis. Instead of trying to figure out how to keep 4-year-olds out of prekindergarten classes, or how to withhold life-saving treatments from Medicaid recipients, or how to cheat the elderly out of their Social Security, the nation’s leaders should be trying seriously to figure out what to do about the future of the American work force. Enormous numbers of workers are in grave danger of being left behind permanently. Businesses have figured out how to prosper without putting the unemployed back to work in jobs that pay well and offer decent benefits. Corporate profits and the stock markets are way up. Businesses are sitting atop mountains of cash. Put people back to work? Forget about it. Has anyone bothered to notice that much of those profits are the result of aggressive payroll-cutting — companies making do with fewer, less well-paid and harder-working employees? For American corporations, the action is increasingly elsewhere.

Their interests are not the same as those of workers, or the country as a whole. As Harold Meyerson put it in The American Prospect: “Our corporations don’t need us anymore. Half their revenues come from abroad. Their products, increasingly, come from abroad as well.” American workers are in a world of hurt. Anyone who thinks that politicians can improve this sorry state of affairs by hacking away at Social Security, Medicare and the public schools are great candidates for involuntary commitment. New ideas on a grand scale are needed. The United States can’t thrive with so many of its citizens condemned to shrunken standards of living because they can’t find adequate employment. Long-term joblessness is a recipe for societal destabilization. It should not be tolerated in a country with as much wealth as the United States. It’s destructive, and it’s wrong.

Native takes over at PT club SOMETIMES YOU WALK in the door ready to write your next golf column on the relative lack of labor strife in the world of golf (nonexistent at least compared to the probable work stoppages that the NFL and NBA will be dealing with next season) and sometimes that plan goes out the window before you’ve had a cup of coffee. This one goes under the latter Michael option. Chimacum Carman High School graduate and former University of New Mexico Lobo Mark Wurtz has been named head golf pro at Discovery Bay Golf Club in Port Townsend. He will begin at the venerable course on March 7 but will be in the area this weekend for the Seattle Golf and Travel Show at Qwest Field Events Center. He’ll be at Discovery Bay fulltime for the golf season and then head back to teach lessons at his winter home in La Quinta, Calif. Wurtz is the first pro at Discovery Bay since Dave Ramsey in 2006. Wurtz learned the game out at Port Ludlow Golf Club where his father Ted Wurtz was head pro in the 1970s. The elder Wurtz is semi-retired and still teaching, this time at Meadowmeer Golf & Country Club on Bainbridge Island. Mark Wurtz turned pro after three years at New Mexico. “My college career was very mediocre,” he told the Kitsap Sun in 1994. “I tried Tour school, but couldn’t get through. “Coming right out of college, I don’t think I was ready to play the PGA Tour.” He would get there in 1994, breaking through after honing his game while working a variety of jobs in Palm Springs, Calif. His talent allowed him to pick up a sponsor to help him travel to the variety of golf mini-tours that were around in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Halfway through his rookie season Wurtz led the PGA Tour in putting with a 1.720 putts per hole average, ahead of Greg Norman, Loren Roberts and Ben Crenshaw. He also won the 1997 Nike (now Nationwide) Shreveport Open. His putter helped him compete on the PGA and Nationwide tours until 2006. Since then Wurtz has taught the game down in the desert at Big Horn Country Club and The Plantation Golf Course in Palm Springs. For the past few years Mark has become a proponent of E.A. Tischler’s New Horizon’s Golf approach and is featured in several swing videos displaying the fundamentals of this concept. You can watch him in action at http://tinyurl.com/4momlte. He’s known for improving upon a student’s existing swing rather than starting from scratch with a new swing that may not fit one’s personality or physical ability. I’ll have more from him soon when he gets back up to the North Olympic Peninsula. Discovery Bay will hold an open house to welcome him at some point in March or April but details are still being worked out. That 1994 Kitsap Sun article is available at http://tinyurl. com/4n8me7q. Welcome home Mark!
Arctic Open readied Port Townsend Golf Club’s next tournament is the always popular Arctic Open on Saturday and Sunday. Bundle up, the game goes on in any weather. The golf course also holds an allday $10 skins game on Saturdays. It’s $10 for the game and $10 for greens fees.

The Roughriders earned themselves another game in front of the home faithful with a 57-49 Senior Night victory over Olympic League rival Sequim on Tuesday. Port Angeles sank 12 of 16 free throws in the final three minutes to help secure the Olympic’s No. 2 seed into the Class 2A sub-district tournament this week. Their reward: A home game against Franklin Pierce (9-5 in SPSL, 10-9 overall) Thursday at 7 p.m. in the first round of a four-team bracket for the 5-8 seeds in the 2A Bi-District. “I think that’s a huge accomplishment for them,” secondyear Port Angeles coach Wes Armstrong said. “It’s very special for these seniors to have one last game in this gym. “We’re excited. We’re very excited.” The win also gave Port Angeles (12-4 in league, 14-6 overall) its first sweep of their archrivals since the winter of 200708. Meanwhile, Sequim saw its bid for the second seed dashed,
instead falling to No. 4 after Olympic beat Klahowya 66-60 on the same night. The Wolves (10-6, 14-7) must now host Evergreen (5-9 in Seamount, 7-11) in a loser-out pigtail playoff Thursday night at 7 p.m. in 2A sub-district play. “We’ve got to rebound quickly,” said Wolves coach Greg Glasser, whose team lost a tie-breaker to Olympic by virtue of the Trojans’ 1-1 record against the Riders. “We can’t dwell on this one too long. “We’re going to come out focused. These kids, they don’t quit. They don’t care if it’s a loser-out game or a winner-in game. “It doesn’t matter. They play hard every night out.” The sort of standing-room crowd the 1966 Riders boys — on hand for a 45-year reunion as AA runners-up — used to enjoy in their heyday packed the Rider gym Tuesday night. Much like so many times before, the two rivals battled back and forth in a game neither team ever led by more than nine points. Rider forward Ian Ward had a double-double with 15 points, 10 rebounds and three assists, Keith Thorpe/Peninsula Daily News while fellow senior Tanner Phair added 12 points and six boards.

PORT ANGELES — In the final home game of their high school careers, Port Angeles’ three seniors gave fans a great last impression. Jessica Madison, Alison Knowles and Taylyn Jeffers each scored in double figures as the Roughrider girls basketball team throttled rival Sequim 84-28 in Tuesday night’s Olympic League finale. Madison had 23 points, seven rebounds and four assists, Jeffers added 12 points and 14 rebounds and Knowles 12 points as Port Angeles finished perfect in league play for the second straight season. Port Angeles (16-0 in league, 17-3 overall) already had the Olympic’s top seed into Class 2A sub-district locked up heading into Tuesday night’s affair. But that didn’t stop the Riders from putting on a show. Led by Madison’s 8-for-13 night, the Riders shot 52.3 percent from the field (34 of 65) to earn their fourth straight season sweep of Sequim. All three seniors were a part of that run, one which has also seen the Riders claim at least a Keith Thorpe/Peninsula Daily News share of the league title each of Port Angeles’ Jessica Madison, who set her school’s the past four years.

Cowboys to battle Redskins Peninsula Daily News
CHIMACUM — A serious illness in the family made it a little rough for the Chimacum girls basketball team as it concluded the regular season Tuesday night. Loaded Vashon Island beat the emotionally exhausted Cowboys 54-36 to send Chimacum to the fifth seed and a loser-out pigtail playoff game at archrival Port Townsend on Thursday night. “It was a pretty rough day for our kids,” Chimacum coach Brad Burlingame said. Sophomore scoring wizard Mallori Cossell’s mother, Jody, had a heart attack 5 a.m. Tuesday. “Mallori was at the hospital all day,” Burlingame said. “Some of the players were at the hospital, too. They are dear friends.” Cossell’s mother was stabilized and in intensive care Tuesday night. Cossell went straight to the game from the hospital. Turn

The powerhouse Pirates knocked the Cowboys out of the playoffs with the win and in the process earned the second seed to tri-district play. “After we won the close game Monday night, we just didn’t have any steam left,” Chimacum coach Jim Eldridge said. It was the final game for seniors Ryan Riggle, Mason Moug, Devin Manix and Dylan Brown-Bishop. The Cowboys finish the year 3-9 in the Nisqually League and 15-5 overall. “We had some close games this year, got some improvement but not as much as I had hoped for,” Eldridge said. “We’ll see what happens next year.” Vashon Island 56, Chimacum 30 Vashon Chimacum

Still, the Wolves couldn’t overtake Port Angeles, which won the rebounding edge 31-25, in the final two quarters. “I’m pretty happy with the way our kids battled and handled how physical PA is,” Glasser said. “They are a big, strong team inside. If we can build upon this, then I like our chances on Thursday night.” Camporini’s 3-pointer at the end of the first quarter gave the Wolves a 9-6 lead. And it wasn’t until the Riders’ final possession of the first half, which resulted in a Ward jumper, that they took their first lead of the night at 14-13. At that point, the Riders had hit just 6 of 19 shots
and turned the ball over seven times against the Wolves’ 2-3 zone. In the second half, however, Port Angeles was able to take care of the ball (4 turnovers), move it in and out of the zone and bury enough shots (10 of 24) to keep Sequim at bay. “We knew offensively it was just a matter of executing,” Armstrong said. “We went into halftime, made a couple of adjustments and were able to get the ball inside and that opened it up our outside shooting. “And to be quote honest with you, we had some guys who stepped up and made some big shots.” Port Angeles 57, Sequim 49 Sequim Port Angeles

U.S safety panel clears Toyota’s electronics By Ken Thomas
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Electronic flaws weren’t to blame for the reports of sudden, unintended acceleration that led to the recall of thousands of Toyota vehicles, the government said Tuesday. Some of the acceleration cases could have been caused by mechanical defects — sticking accelerator pedals and gas pedals that can become trapped in floor mats — that have been dealt with in recalls, the government said. And in some cases, investigators suggested, drivers simply hit the gas when they meant to press the brake. “We feel that Toyota vehicles are safe to drive,” declared Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. The investigation bolstered Toyota’s contentions that electronic gremlins were not to blame and its series of recalls — involving more than 12 million vehicles globally since fall 2009 — had directly addressed the safety concerns. Transportation officials, assisted by engineers with NASA, said the 10-month study of Toyota vehicles concluded there was no electronic cause of unintended high-speed acceleration.
The study, launched at the request of Congress, responded to consumer complaints that flawed electronics could be the culprit behind complaints that led to Toyota’s spate of recalls.
No electronic problems Federal officials said they thoroughly examined the acceleration reports and could not find evidence of an electronic problem. Instead, investigators with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the evidence showed that cases in which owners complained about ineffective brakes were most likely caused by “pedal misapplication,” in which the driver stepped on the accelerator instead of the brakes. Many of the complaints involved cases in which the vehicle accelerated after it was stationary or at very low speed. LaHood said NASA engineers “rigorously examined” nine Toyotas driven by consumers who complained of unintended acceleration. NASA reviewed 280,000 lines of software code to look for flaws that could cause the acceleration. Investigators tested mechanical components in

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood speaks about the Toyota recalls Tuesday at the Transportation Department in Washington, D.C. Toyotas that could lead to the problem and bombarded vehicles with electro-magnetic radiation to see whether that could make the electronics cause the cars to speed up. Electronic problems can include buggy software, circuitry influenced by electrical interference and electrical shorts. The problems are often difficult to spot and can surface when combined with environmental factors like a blast from a heater vent or moisture from the road. A preliminary part of the study, released last August, failed to find any electronic
flaws based on a review of event data recorders, or vehicle black boxes. Not everyone was convinced. Rhonda Smith of Sevierville, Tenn., who last year testified before a congressional committee that her Lexus raced up to 100 miles per hour without her control, said Tuesday there had to be a cause other than floor mats or sticky gas pedals because she said neither happened in her case. “There is a defect in that car whether they want to believe it or not,” Smith said. “They need to keep searching.”
State bill would ban toxic compounds in tar sealants By Phuong Le
The Associated Press
SEATTLE — A Seattle lawmaker wants Washington to ban toxic compounds in pavement sealants used to maintain driveways and parking lots. But his efforts appear to have hit a curb. Rep. David Frockt, D-Seattle, said safer alternatives are available to sealants that contain coal tar, which pose growing environmental concerns. He testified in Olympia on Tuesday in support of his bill. But at the hearing, Rep. Dave Upthegrove, the chair of the House environment committee, said the bill won’t likely get a vote this year. He said after the hearing that he’s not opposed to the bill, but wants to do due diligence and engage everyone who would be affected by the measure. It is a matter of timing
and process, Upthegrove said. House Bill 1721 would prohibit the sale of coal tar sealants after Jan. 1, 2012, and ban the application of such products after July 1, 2012. Such sealants have been used for decades on parking lots, driveways and playgrounds to prevent them from cracking, but they contain high levels of toxic compounds called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. PAHs are a concern because they’re toxic to fish and other aquatic life. Several are probable human carcinogens. A study last December by the U.S. Geological Survey found that coal tar sealants have contaminated 40 urban lakes, including Lake Washington and Lake Ballinger in Mountlake Terrace. Peter Van Metre, a USGS scientist based in Texas and lead author of that study,
told the House environment committee Tuesday that coal-tar based sealants was the largest contributor of PAHs to Lake Ballinger. “It’s not just general urban use that’s causing the contamination,” he said in an interview.
Opposes ban Anne LeHuray, a scientist with the Pavement Coatings Technology Council in Alexandria, Virginia, said a statewide ban would hurt small businesses. The council disputes the USGS study, and notes that PAHs are present in automobile exhaust, motor oil, charcoal grilling and other products. The city of Austin, Washington, D.C., Wisconsin’s Dane County and several local governments have banned pavement sealants containing coal tar. Lowe’s spokeswoman Julie Yenichek said the retail chain has not sold
coal tar sealants in years. Home Depot stopped selling coal tar in 2007 except for a few states in the Northeast, and the retailer will phase out the product from all stores beginning April 1, said spokeswoman Jean Niemi. The state Department of Transportation agency stopped using coal tar sealants a couple years ago. “When we did use it, it was only used in some parking lot rest areas,” said Alice Fiman, an agency spokeswoman. Officials with the state Department of Ecology and the Department of Natural Resources testified in support of the measure. “This issue is ripe, it’s ready to go,” said Mo McBroom, policy director with the Washington Environmental Council. “There are compelling reasons to move on this now.”
Lawmakers want amendment to guard state pension funds The Associated Press
80 percent requirement
The legislators sponsoring the amendment reiterated that these benefits should not be seen as an optional cost, but rather an obligation of the state. In changing the constitution, they face the steep challenge of obtaining a two-thirds supermajority in the Legislature. The measure must also go on the ballot and gain passage by voters in the next general election.

New WaMu plan SEATTLE — Washington Mutual Inc. on Tuesday filed a revised bankruptcy plan it hopes will meet with the approval of a Delaware judge who last month signed off on legal settlement underlying the bank holding company’s reorganization plan but refused to confirm the plan until certain changes were made. After the company filed the amended plan Tuesday, Judge Mary Walrath scheduled a March 21 hearing on the disclosure statement outlining and explaining the plan to be voted on by WaMu’s creditors. Like the earlier proposal, the new plan is based on a legal settlement involving WaMu, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and JPMorgan Chase Bank. The settlement resolved lawsuits that were filed after the FDIC seized the company’s flagship bank in 2008 and sold it to JPMorgan Chase for $1.9 billion. The judge ruled last month that the settlement was fair and reasonable, but she denied confirmation of the reorganization plan.
Columbia Bank TACOMA — Columbia Banking System Inc., the Tacoma-based holding company for Columbia Bank, has reported net income of $12.6 million, or 32 cents per diluted share, in the fourth quarter that ended Dec. 31, up from $447,000, or 2 cents per share, in fourth quarter 2009. For all of fiscal 2010, the company posted net income of $25.8 million, or 72 cents per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $8.4 million, or 38 cents per share, in fiscal 2009. In addition, Columbia Banking’s board of directors announced a quarterly cash dividend of 3 cents per common share will be paid March 3 to shareholders of record as of Feb. 17. Columbia Bank, which bought out the failing American Marine Bank chain in a Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.-assisted transaction last year, has branches in Sequim, Port Angeles, Port Townsend and Port Ludlow and in 80 other cities.

“While we expect the economic climate to be hampered by a slow recovery, we are optimistic about the opportunities ahead,” said Melanie Dressel, president and CEO, in a statement.
Hospital pay SEATTLE — Some hospitals in Washington state are paying their executives so much that the hospitals may no longer quality for business tax breaks. Public radio station KUOW in Seattle reported that 15 hospital executives in Washington earned $1 million or more in 2009, including 14 at nonprofit hospitals and one at a government hospital. State law limits how much nonprofit hospitals can pay their executives. Their pay has to be comparable to what public servants in Washington make in similar jobs. Department of Revenue spokesman Mike Gowrylow told KUOW the agency needs to examine whether these nonprofits are paying executives too much. Several hospital officials said they were in compliance with state law. State Sen. Karen Keiser, D-Kent, has introduced a bill that would require nonprofit hospitals to disclose top executive pay.

The proposed amendment would ensure funding for those open pension plans by requiring the state pay at least 80 percent of the state actuary’s recommended contribution rate every year. The 80 percent floor gives legislators some wiggle room to accommodate financial issues of the day without letting changing economic assumptions lower contribution rates.
“Too often in the past, we have allowed the overwhelming budget problems in the state to link to . underfunding these pensions, and to me, this is just not acceptable,” said Sen. Steve Conway, D-Tacoma, prime sponsor of the amendment in the Senate. “We have a commitment to the employees of these states that we manage these pensions to provide the benefits we committed to them.”
OLYMPIA — Lawmakers want to amend the state constitution to guarantee yearly contributions to state pension plans. State Treasurer Jim McIntire and a bipartisan group of legislators on Tuesday proposed a minimum rate for state contributions. While Washington on the whole has one of the most financially secure pension systems in the country, two retirement plans for state employees and teachers have an unfunded liability of about $6.9 billion. Those are costs the state is already committed to paying, McIntire said. A constitutional amendment would ensure the state can’t put off payments during tough budget times, so ongoing pension plans don’t experience similar underfunding. “We need to be able to pay our bills; those particularly that we’ve already incurred,” he said. “And this constitutional amendment, I think, will give us the fiscal discipline to do that.” Washington currently
has 10 open pension programs that are funded at a rate of 118 percent of future liabilities. However, two programs that were closed in 1977 — PERS1, which covers state and local public employees, and TRS1, which covers teachers — have been underfunded several times in the past 30 years, and are now only funded at 72 percent of future liabilities. Average payment to retirees on these closed pension plans is $21,200 a year, compared to an average $19,300 for those under the open pension plans, according to McIntire’s office.

Artist’s work on display at college gallery By Diane Urbani
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Linda Wiechman was away from home for nine years. A long way away, in Minnesota. The Port Angeles native, the daughter of a full-blooded Klallam father, left to go and live with her husband, Jim Wiechman, in the late 1970s. After inheriting 3 acres on the west side of the Elwha River, Linda Wiechman returned to her tribe’s birthplace; she has since made it her mission to teach others about Klallam art, traditional uses for native plants and the culture she loves.
Speaking at college It’s been decades since she’s come back, but her passion for Salish art and tradition hasn’t dimmed in the slightest. So this Thursday, Wiechman will be the Studium Generale speaker at Peninsula College, and later in the afternoon, she’ll be the guest of honor at a public reception in the college’s Longhouse Gallery. Wiechman is a painter, drum maker, carver and weaver — who makes soaps, lotions and balms from the plants that grow near her home. She’ll give a free 50-minute talk about her creative process beginning at 12:35 p.m. Thursday in the Little Theater, on the campus at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.
Images such as this one by Wiechman are on display this month in the Peninsula College Longhouse in Port Angeles. And at 2 p.m., she’ll go over to the Longhouse Gallery, in the campus’ southwest corner, where about 25 pieces of her art are on display. Inside the Longhouse are carved masks, button blankets, drums and more — such as “Eagle Woman,” Wiechman’s vision of a human encircled in
bald eagle feathers and extending a hand to the winged creature.

He did so, and Wiechman has been selling those pieces ever since in Olympic National Park visitor centers and Wagner’s Grocery, west of Port Angeles on U.S. Highway 101. The long, dark winter is a time of creativity for the artist. She’s been painting a lot this season — while embarking on a new course of study: a satellite course in casino management from Northwest Indian College.
New course of study Wiechman says she’s still considering which direction she’ll take next, but one of the things she’s interested in is the bachelor’s degree in native environmental science offered at Northwest Indian. Wiechman’s art, meantime, will grace the Longhouse Gallery through February. Her display is part of a series of exhibits by members of the North Olympic Peninsula’s Native American tribes, including the Jamestown S’Klallam, Hoh, Quileute, Makah and Wiechman’s Lower Elwha Klallam. To find out more about the series, contact Maria Pena, Peninsula College dean of student development, at mpena@pencol. edu or 360-417-6347.
Wiechman’s “Eagle Woman” is one of about 25 images on display this month in the Peninsula College Longhouse Gallery.

Thousands mourn corrections officer The Associated Press
Gov. Chris Gregoire, left, presents James Hamm with a state flag at the memorial service for Jayme Biendl, Hamm’s daughter.
EVERETT — State corrections officer Jayme Biendl, found strangled in a prison chapel, was remembered at a memorial service Tuesday as a courageous and dedicated worker whose loss has devastated her family, friends and co-workers. “There will forever be a void in my soul and in this department without Jayme,” Sgt. Jimmie Fletcher, a coworker, told the several thousand mourners. Biendl, 34, of Granite Falls, was killed Jan. 29 at the Monroe Correctional Complex, a state prison about 30 miles northeast of Seattle. Police say their prime suspect is Byron Scherf, a three-strikes offender serving a life sentence after two rape convictions. Many of those present wiped away tears as an honor guard slowly brought Biendl’s flag-draped casket inside Everett’s Comcast Arena. Hundreds of law enforcement officers in dress uni-
forms were among the mourners, as were Gov. Chris Gregoire and Corrections Secretary Eldon Vail. Gregoire told family members that Biendl “commanded respect through her own integrity,” and asked friends and family to “have faith in one another” as they deal with their loss.
‘All the best’ Vail said Biendl, a personable young woman who in 2008 was named Monroe’s Correctional Officer of the Year, represents “the best of who we are.” He praised the sense of duty of workers “who are in constant direct contact with some of the most troubled and dangerous people in our society.” “There’s a real sense of fear, anxiety and grief from this tragic loss,” he added, “yet our staff members continue to come to work each day despite all these swirling emotions.” Officials for the correctional officers’ union have questioned why Biendl, a nine-year veteran of the
department, was alone after complaining to prison supervisors about being the only officer working in the chapel without anyone checking on her.
Internal investigation An internal investigation is under way, and Gregoire has asked for an outside review by federal officials at the National Institute of Corrections. “The tragic loss of Jayme Biendl must result in an honest public discussion of prison safety, a conversation that is overdue but much needed,” Vail said.

Harvey McDonald ‘Don’ Gray III
fishing. He had the best of two worlds — launch his boat into the surf or walk to the Elwha River to plunk a line in. Don got a Brittany spaniel named Ringo, which led to annual pheasant hunts to Othello, Washington, with his brothers-in-law and wives: Harold and Lillian Green, Dick and Alene Somers, and partner Vern and Etta Grall. Oh, the stories did fly! Don and Betty traveled to Mexico and back by car in 1963, Alaska six times and Canada many times. Dad was a real “gentleman,” opening doors for women, striking up conversations with one and all, and always wearing a smile to acknowledge everyone who passed his way. He has been a member of Rotary International, Peninsula Golf Course, Northwest Furniture Dealers and an usher at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. Betty, who took such excellent loving care of him this past year and spent 64 wonderful years of married life, survives him at home. Don, an only child, considered his numerous children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren another of his greatest accomplishments. Don is survived by his sons, Harvey “Mac” McDonald Gray IV and wife, Janelle, and Jack
July 3, 1927 February 5, 2011 Born, raised and having lived life to the fullest on the Olympic Peninsula, Harvey McDonald “Don” Gray III passed away Saturday, February 5, 2011. He was 83. Don was born on July 3, 1927, in Port Angeles to Harvey McDonald Gray II and Bernice Hathaway (Smith) Gray. As a young man, he hiked all the trails in Olympic National Park and fished all the rivers. But it was at Roosevelt High School a certain girl caught his eye — and his heart. Betty Marie Somers became his wife on May 15, 1946. Don joined the Navy in his senior year to fight in World War II. Fortunately, the war ended before he saw active duty. When his dad passed at 52, he helped his mother run the family business, Angeles Furniture Co., in downtown Port Angeles. Eventually, he became the owner with partner, Pierre Lieurance, and built the new store at its current location, 1114 East First Street. Don was a respected and successful businessman. Known for his honesty, Don had a unique desire to support the community charitably.

Mr. Gray His partner sold his interest to Vern and Etta Grall. Upon their retirement in 1986, they sold the business to Don’s son, Jack, and wife, Patty, and Bill and Jan Clevenger. Making Angeles Furniture a success was one of Don’s greatest accomplishments. He enjoyed “chewing the fat” with every customer who walked through the door, and his employees were like family to him. His day off was Thursday, Men’s Day at Peninsula Golf Club. Don was an avid golfer, managing not one but two holes-inone. For two months out of the year, he and Betty would live in Palm Desert, California, so he could play golf nonstop with his friends. Don and Betty moved to Place Road in 1954 and Don continued his

The Last Word in Astrology
By Eugenia Last
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t put too much emphasis on what everyone else does. Follow your own path. It’s what you offer others and the insight you bring to what you do that will make others eventually realize your value. 3 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Learning something that will help you market yourself for the current economic climate will enhance your chance to get ahead and may also lead to a favorable geographical move. Think for yourself and follow the path that suits you best. 3 stars
Rose is Rose
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The future looks bright if you present your talent, skills and a viable plan. There is stability in your future if you take the right steps to secure your position now. Don’t let love or feeling responsible for someone cost you financially. 3 stars
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Base choices on your needs, not what someone else wants. Being accommodating can be the path of least resistance but it may not suit your needs in the future, especially if you cannot be fulfilled by the person in your life who is calling the shots. 4 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Show your strength and confidence and what you are capable of doing. Your leadership quality will bring you added responsibilities but also the discipline and courage to turn something little into something big. 2 stars
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Focus on home, family and friends. Keeping both personal and professional deals and plans out in the open will allow you to gauge what you are up against. Your determination, coupled with staying power, will bring success. 5 stars
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Make whatever selfimprovements you can to position yourself for the future. Someone from your past can make a huge difference to the path you take. Listen to advice being offered. 5 stars
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ve got more going for you than you realize, so take advantage of any opportunity to speak from the heart. A serious approach to the way you handle pending problems will determine who will support your efforts and who will not. 2 stars
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Trust in your own instincts, not what someone else is trying to convince you to do. What you propose will set the stage for what’s to come. You stand to benefit personally, professionally and financially. 3 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take your time, listen to what’s being said and you won’t make a poor decision. It’s the people closest to you and the ones who can affect your lifestyle that may not understand what you want or need. Communication will be required. 3 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You don’t have to bend to what others want, especially if they are asking too much of you or from you. Determine what it is that will make you feel satisfied or happy about your life, lifestyle and future goals. Make your choices count. 2 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There is too much that you aren’t seeing clearly to make a beneficial decision. Step back, ask pertinent questions and prepare to sit on the fence until you know what you want. An opportunity will present itself if you volunteer your services. 4 stars

Spicy chorizo needs little forethought The Associated Press
A nice pot of chili or stew slowly simmering on the stove is a heartwarming thought, but it’s a dinner that requires forethought.
What about the wintery day you walk in late from work but still want a meal that will take the chill off? The most complicated thing you need to do is brown some chorizo. And if
you want to cut the calories, feel free to substitute chicken sausage. Also try andouille sausage or even a garlicky kielbasa for a slightly less spicy stew.

Mentor honored for decades of work In 1988, Marycile Olexen moved to Port Angeles with her husband, who was taking a management job at Clallam Transit. Olexen, a technical writer, was unemployed and didn’t know anybody, so she put on her gray flannel suit and pounded the streets. She had no success until her allergy doctor, Eloise Kailin, said that she knew a woman with a plan who needed a grant writer. So Olexen went to a community meeting on the waterfront and met Katherine Baril, who was setting up the Sequim Bay Watershed Management Plan, one of the first in the country, and was looking for volunteers. “She said, ‘Don’t leave,’” Olexen said. Olexen stayed, and when the meeting was over, Baril asked her to write a grant. Olexen agreed, which led to a new career in environmental education. On Friday, a retirement party was held to honor Baril and her 20 years at the helm of the Washington State University Extension of Jefferson County.

Olexen, whose skills included desktop publishing, recalled the night she and Baril composed a newspaper insert explaining the watershed management plan with the goal of getting people involved. She also wrote a WSU grant that mobilized citizen volunteers, called Bay Watchers, who received education, training and resources to monitor water quality. The idea of training volunteer crews caught on and expanded to other counties as Stream Watchers and Beach Watchers, then coalesced under the name Water Watchers, Olexen said. “We started building the whole watershed program Mentored many that is going on in Clallam At the party, Olexen was County,” Olexen said. one of dozens of people who Working with locals raised their hands when asked if their lives had Next, Olexen helped been changed because of write the Eight Streams Baril’s mentorship.

Katherine Baril, right, reads one of the several proclamations presented to her at her retirement party Friday night as Jefferson County Superior Court Clerk Ruth Gordon looks on. Gordon emceed the testimonials portion of Friday’s salute to Baril. As they went to distribution sites, Reichner drove while Baril blew air into the water through a hose to keep the fish alive. Olexen said she also wrote three grants for the small farms program that Baril pioneered on the Peninsula, and before she retired worked on funding for the restoration of Jimmy Come Lately Creek.
Baril also opened doors for women when she was hired as director of WSU Extension of Jefferson County in 1991. According to Larry Dennison, Jefferson County commissioner at the time, Baril was a surprisingly qualified candidate. Baril has a master’s in business administration and a doctorate in international human rights law. According to the biography printed in the retirement party program, Baril worked with the Civil Rights and Federal Trade commissions in Seattle. She led a civil rights review of native villages in Alaska in 1976 that led to the establishment of 16 rural school districts offering bilingual-bicultural education. Baril also brought together tribal and corporate leaders to resolve water, salmon and spotted owl conflicts; helped write the state’s Timber Fish
Wildlife Agreement; and served on national and state councils for sustainable development. She moved to the Olympic Peninsula in 1986 after meeting Bob Garrison, whom she married in 1988. That same year, she pioneered the Sequim Bay Watershed Project and met Olexen, who had moved to Port Angeles from Eastern Washington. “We were two women who were new to the community and looking for how we would fit in,” Olexen said. After working with Baril on several projects, Olexen wanted to go to work for the WSU Extension in Clallam County but was told she needed a master’s degree, which wasn’t available on the Peninsula at the time. It was Baril who steered her to Antioch University’s low-residency program in Seattle, Olexen said, which she attended on nights and weekends, earning a master’s degree in adult and community education. Olexen also helped write a grant to hire four teachers to create a high school science curriculum and kits that Port Angeles students used to study the Tumwater Creek estuary. One of the teachers was Jadyn Reichner, who also spoke at Friday’s party. Reichner, who was teaching in Sequim, was also involved in the Sequim Bay restoration. At Friday’s party, she recalled Baril arriving after school with 1,000 salmon fry in a bucket to plant in a creek.

Bell Creek got fixed.” One of the people who came forward was Gary Smith, owner of Maple View Dairy near Port Williams, where some of the restoration work was done. Olexen still remembers how exciting it was to see the results of the work. “They had hardly gotten the bulldozers out of the creek and the gravel in when the salmon were there,” Olexen said. “It was like ‘Field of Dreams’ — they came.”

High school equestrian season under way Let the games begin. The official — and exciting — season of competition for the Port Angeles and Sequim high school teams started during the last week of January when they traveled to Tacoma for the first of three Washington State High School Equestrian Team qualifying meets. In WAHSET, interscholastic competition is divided into six districts. Port Angeles and Sequim compete in District 4. For the first time, Port Townsend has its own team and will compete in District 6, which doesn’t hold its first meet until March. Overall top riders in each event from each of the three district meets qualify to compete at the state finals in May. Congratulations to Port Angeles’ Suzanne Heistand for her first place in reining and to Kynzie Hendricks for second in steer daubing! Their teammates also placed well: Allison Brietbach finished seventh in reining, Keely Gustin was sixth in dressage, and Nathan Gentry placed eighth in working rancher. The IHOR, or in-hand obstacle relay, team of Rachel Brietbach, Heistand, Marissa Wilson and Paige Swordmaker finished in sixth place, and the drill team of Allison and Rachel Brietbach, Hendricks and Heistand placed fifth.

Adzuki beans good source of protein By Michelle Locke The Associated Press
Get ready to spill the beans on adzuki. Wait. You’ve never heard of adzuki beans? You will. These pint-size packages of protein have been moving from the shelves of ethnic markets to big chains. They’re even showing up in snack foods and ice cream. Making a leap into the mainstream of cooking, adzuki beans don’t have to be soaked for use like most legumes and are an excellent source of protein. As for the multiple names, the beans come from Asia, and there have been
some translation issues. “They’re becoming a lot more mainstream,” said Wendy Esko, marketing assistant in charge of product development and research at Eden Foods. Whatever you call them, the beans cropped up in America in the 1960s as part of the macrobiotic movement, said Esko. Vibrantly colored and sweet, adzuki are commonly used in desserts in Asian cooking, but in America they often are put to savory use, mixed into salads, cooked with rice and dropped into soups. Like other beans, adzuki are a good source of protein.
Unlike many other dried legumes, they don’t have to be soaked before cooking. And now they’ve even made their way into snack foods. Boulder Canyon Natural Foods sells several varieties of chips made from rice and adzuki beans, including chipotle cheese flavored and sun-dried tomato and basil. The beans also are showing up in American gelato. To find adzuki beans, you may need to check the natural foods section of the grocer. If you’re watching your sodium, rinse the beans under cool water briefly before adding to the salad.

PORT ANGELES — Peninsula College economics and environmental science professor Daniel Underwood will talk about the research efforts involved in the Rainy Creek Biodiversity Project when he presents “Adventures in Forest Ecology” at Peninsula College. The talk is part of the college’s Studium Generale program and will be held in the school’s Little Theater, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd, at 12:35 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 17. The Rainy Creek Biodiversity Project is a research effort Underwood first undertook in 2005 when he began working with Verne Farrell, a silviculturalist with the Olympic
National Forest. The project involves developing several ways of thinning the forest to accelerate development of a complex forest to support biodiversity. In 2007, Underwood began working with his undergraduate research teams to establish permanent sample plots in treated areas as well as in a control area, which was left untouched. Their work has involved measuring plants species and trees and sampling soil moisture and sunlight on the forest floor. They have also sampled small mammals. “We now have a good idea of what the forest looked like in terms of distribution of net primary
productivity from the ground to the upper canopy of the forest,” Underwood said. “We also have some idea of the availability of prey species for predators like the northern spotted owl and acceleration of habitat development, which the Northwest Forest Plan calls for.” This summer, Underwood and his students hope to return to the forest to begin measuring how the forest is responding. “This can be a long-term study to measure changes in forest health and forest complexity, extracting residual forest products to support local industry with corresponding positive impacts on income and employment,” Underwood said.
