Sewer work starts with bonds’ sale
February 16, 2011
Port Hadlock project is years away from being operational By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News
PORT HADLOCK — Jefferson County’s current sale of $3.15 million in limited tax general obligation bonds could jump-start the local economy as it finances the first step in the construction of a sewer system in Port Hadlock. The money raised will be used for planning and land acquisition for the proposed sewer system, which has a projected cost of around $28 million, according to County Administrator Philip Morley. About $2.27 million of the total will be used for the sewer project, while $880,000 will go toward the construction of a new 9-1-1 facility. While it will be several years before the sewer system will be operational, any action that brings the project closer to fruition is a good thing, according to a local businessman.

Kessler: Mandatory change a bad idea news sources
OLYMPIA — A familiar face to North Olympic Peninsula voters as well as the state Legislature peered from the other side of the dais Tuesday. Retired Rep. Lynn Kessler, the former House majority leader who represented the district that included the North Kessler Olympic Peninsula, was a vocal critic of legislation that would impose a mandatory fee to visit Washington’s 119 state parks. “We have to find another way,” said Kessler at a House Ways and Means Committee hearing on HB 1796 at the state Capitol. “This is going to exclude more people from our parks than ever before in the history of our state.” Ironically, the bill was introduced by Kessler’s former 24th Legislative District seat mate, Rep. Kevin Van De Wege, D-Sequim, who sees the fee schedule as a way to maintain state parks and millions of acres of public lands amid a $4.6 billion state budget deficit. The Ways and Means Com-
Peg Brewer’s front yard got some pizzazz when she commissioned a chain saw artist to turn a tree stump into a ladybug.

mittee took up HB 1796, which would require the purchase of a $30 annual vehicle pass or a $10 single-day pass to enter state recreation sites.
$30 annual pass Most of the initial proceeds would be deposited in a special state parks fund, while the rest would be divided between the state Department of Natural Resources and the Department of Fish & Wildlife, according to Van De Wege’s bill. Those departments own or manage more than 6.6 million acres of public land. Among them are such North Olympic Peninsula attractions as Fort Worden, Fort Flagler, Fort Townsend, Sequim Bay and Bogachiel state parks. Others are Dosewallips, Shine Tidelands, Mystery Bay and Anderson Lake state parks — and possibly the state’s smallest park, the historic Victorian Rothschild House, managed by the Jefferson County Historical Society in Port Townsend.

PORT TOWNSEND — A series of recent windstorms knocked down several trees in Peg Brewer’s front yard, leaving a large stump from the largest. Brewer wanted do something special, and she remembered seeing a truck driving around town advertising chain saw art. Brewer, 85, wrote down the phone number on the side of the
truck the next time she saw it. The phone call summoned chain-saw artist Steve Backus of Whidbey Island. He met Brewer, saw the stump and decided that the most fitting object was . . . a ladybug. “I didn’t want a bear,” Brewer said. “I liked the idea of a ladybug, although a real ladybug has a black head.” The carved version has a var-
nished head, which makes the black eyes easier to see. While Backus supervised the job, his daughter, Chelsey, 21, did most of the sculpting in what was her first commissioned work. “This young lady is a thirdgeneration chain-saw artist because the business was started by her grandmother,” Brewer said. “I was happy that I could help her to start her career.”

Jackson-tied lawyer: I’ll be on defense A LAWYER WHO worked for celebrity attorney Mark Geragos during his representation of Michael Jackson said Tuesday he wants to join the defense team representing Jackson’s doctor on an involuntary manslaughter charge. The move by attorney Nareg Gourjian raised the possibility of a conflict of interest. Murray Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said loyalty to a former client, even one who is dead, is part of the rules that must be obeyed by all attorneys. Dr. Conrad Murray, who was Jackson’s personal physician at the time of his death, is accused of negligence in giving him the powerful anesthetic propofol and other sedatives listed as the cause of death in the pop star’s autopsy. Murray has pleaded not guilty. He did not attend
Tuesday’s hearing Geragos represented Jackson on child molestation allegations from 2003 to 2005 but left the case before the trial in which Jackson was acquitted. Gourjian, who appeared in court with Murray’s lawyers, said he was a new attorney when he was hired by Geragos and did little on the Jackson case. The judge set a hearing for Feb. 24 on the issue.

CECIL KAISER, 94, a diminutive left-hander who made $700 a month at the height of his Negro Leagues pitching career in the 1940s, died Monday. His son, Tyrone, said Mr. Kaiser died following a fall at his home in Southfield, Mich. “He fell, Mr. Kaiser was rushed in 2008 to the hospital, and his heart stopped,” said Tyrone Kaiser, who remembered his father as a lifelong baseball fan who talked about the game “all the time.” Mr. Kaiser grew up a Yankees fan in New York. With his path to the majors blocked by segregation, the 5-foot-6, 165-pounder played outfield with some traveling sandlot teams, eventually rising to prominent roles with the Pittsburgh Crawfords and Homestead Grays. According to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, Mr. Kaiser first appeared with the Crawfords as an

outfielder, but when the team’s pitching staff suffered a series of injuries, manager “Candy Jim” Taylor sent Kaiser to the mound. A reluctant Kaiser responded by hurling a complete-game victory over the Cincinnati Clowns. Despite his size, Kaiser was known as a strikeout pitcher who effectively mixed in a good fastball with an assortment of offspeed pitches. He was nicknamed “Minute Man” because it took him but a minute to strike out batters.
__________ DAVID F. FRIEDMAN, 87, the B-movie producer of the 1960s and ‘70s who turned out the cult classic “Blood Feast,” died Monday, his niece said. Bridgett Everett said her uncle died of heart failure at a nursing home in Anniston, Ala. Mr. Friedman worked with director Herschell Gordon Lewis to create 1963’s “Blood Feast,” a
roughly acted film that depicted the dismemberment of attractive women. The film is considered one of the first of the socalled “gore” movies, said Mike Vraney, owner of Something Weird Video in Seattle. “Blood Feast” cost a paltry $24,500 to make — and netted a $6.5 million profit, Everett said. Some of Mr. Friedman’s adult-oriented B-movies, such as “Goldilocks and the Three Bares,” were shot in nudist colonies. Others combined sexual themes with horror and crime, including “The Adult Version of Jekyll and Hide” and “The Defilers.” “He was bigger than life,” Vraney said. “He could drink like a fish and he smoked giant cigars.”

1936 (75 years ago) Recreational development in Olympic National Forest was the principal topic of discussion today as a three-day meeting of U.S. Forest Service officers neared conclusion at the Lee Hotel in Port Angeles. F.W. Cleator, regional recreation engineer and planner from the Portland, Ore., office of the Forest Service, and J.R. Bruckart, Olympic National Forest supervisor, held preliminary discussion about the Deer Park-Salal Ridge recreation area. But neither official had any public announcement to make on a development program in this area, including the proposed linking of the Deer Park and Salal Ridge [Hurricane Ridge] roads.

Briefly: Nation Dalai Lama’s nephew killed at walk for Tibet PALM COAST, Fla. — The Dalai Lama’s nephew was smiling, radiating energy as he tackled the first leg of a 300-mile walk to promote Tibet’s independence from China. He insisted on finishing the last two miles on his own, even as darkness fell. “For the cause,” Jigme K. Norbu said, as he had on so many simi- Norbu lar journeys before. Norbu was alone on a dark coastal highway Monday when he was struck and killed by an SUV. He was headed south in the same direction as traffic, following a white line along the side of the road, according to the Highway Patrol. The impact crumpled the vehicle’s hood and shattered the front windshield. Authorities said it appeared to be an accident and that the driver swerved but couldn’t avoid Norbu. The Highway Patrol was still investigating but didn’t expect any charges.
Food cost ‘dangerous’ ST. LOUIS — Global food prices have hit “dangerous levels” that could contribute to political instability, push millions of people into poverty and raise the cost of groceries, according to a new report from
the World Bank. The bank released a report Tuesday that said global food prices have jumped 29 percent in the past year and are just 3 percent below the all-time peak hit in 2008. Bank President Robert Zoellick said the rising prices have hit people hardest in the developing world because they spend as much as half their income on food.
Reporter recovering NEW YORK — CBS News correspondent Lara Logan was recovering in a U.S. hospital Tuesday from a sexual attack and beating she sustained while reporting on the tumultuous events in Cairo. Logan was in the city’s Tahrir Square on Friday after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped down when she, her team and their security “were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration,” CBS said in a statement Tuesday. The network described a mob of more than 200 people “whipped into a frenzy.” Separated from her crew in the crush of the violent pack, she suffered what CBS called “a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating.” She was saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers, the network said. She reconnected with the CBS team and returned to the U.S. on Saturday. The attack on Logan, CBS News’ chief foreign affairs correspondent, was one of at least 140 others suffered by reporters covering the unrest in Egypt since Jan. 30. The Associated Press

Sexual abuse victims sue for military change By Kimberly Hefling The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — More than a dozen U.S. veterans who say they were raped or assaulted by comrades filed a class-action suit in federal court Tuesday attempting to force the Pentagon to change how it handles such cases. The current and former service members — 15 women and two men — describe circumstances in which servicemen allegedly got away with rape and other sexual abuse while their victims were ordered to continue to serve with them. The suit names Defense Secretary Robert Gates and his predecessor, Donald H. Rumsfeld. The plaintiffs say individual commanders have too much say in how allegations are handled and that they want reforms in the system. The alleged attackers in the lawsuit include an Army criminal investigator and an Army National Guard commander. The alleged abuse ranges from
obscene verbal abuse to gang rape. In one incident, an Army Reservist said two male colleagues raped her in Iraq and videotaped the attack. She complained to authorities after the men circulated the video to colleagues.
Charges weren’t filed Despite being bruised from her shoulders to elbows from being held down, she said charges weren’t filed because the commander determined she “did not act like a rape victim” and “did not struggle enough,” and authorities said they didn’t want to delay the scheduled return of the alleged attackers to the United States. “The problem of rape in the military is not only service members getting raped, but it’s the entire way that the military as a whole is dealing with it,” said Panayiota Bertzikis, who is a plaintiff in the lawsuit and claims she was raped in 2006.
“From survivors having to be involuntarily discharged from service, the constant verbal abuse, once a survivor does come forward, your entire unit is known to turn their back on you. “The entire culture needs to be changed.” Although The Associated Press normally does not identify the victims of sexual assault, the plaintiffs in the lawsuit have publicly discussed the cases. Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said in a statement that sexual assault is a wider societal problem and that Gates has been working to ensure the military is doing all it can to prevent and respond to it. The military had already planned to roll out a new hot line victims can call in April, said Pentagon spokeswoman Cynthia O. Smith. It has another initiative that encourages service members to help those who are assaulted or raped.
House Republicans pushing $61 billion in cuts to budget The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — On a collision course over spending, House Republicans advanced a sweeping $61 billion package of budget reductions Tuesday despite a veto threat and a warning from President Barack Obama against cuts “that could endanger the recovery.” Congressional Democrats said the Republican cuts would reduce U.S. employment rather than add to it and leapt to criticize when House Speaker John Boehner said “so be it” if federal government jobs are lost. Spending legislation must be signed into law by March 4 to prevent a government shutdown that neither side says it wants. The GOP bill, separate from the 2012 budget Obama unveiled
Monday, covers spending for the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30. The current legislation would affect domestic programs ranging from education and science to agriculture and parks, and it marks the first significant attack on federal deficits by Republicans elected last fall with the support of tea party activists. Passage is likely by week’s end in the House, but a frosty reception is expected later in the Democratic-controlled Senate. For all the maneuvering, the measure is merely a first round in what looms as a politically defining struggle that will soon expand to encompass Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, the large government programs that provide benefits directly to tens of millions.
“We know we can’t balance this budget simply by reducing nonsecurity, nondefense spending,” said Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, referring to the 359-page bill that would cut $61 billion from domestic programs. “But as the saying goes, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. This is that first step.” The measure is sweeping in its scope, cutting spending from literally hundreds of domestic budget accounts and eliminating many others. In contrast to cuts for many agencies, the Pentagon would get an increase from current levels, and the House rejected a handful of efforts to scale it back. In a reflection of tea party priorities, earmarks are banned in the bill.

The short-term extension gives lawmakers a chance to review the measures that critics from both the right and left say are unconstitutional infringements on personal liberties. The Senate voted 86-12 a day after the House agreed to extend the three provisions, including two from the 2001 USA Patriot Act, until Dec. 8. The two chambers must now agree on a common approach.
MORE THAN 100 foreign intelligence agencies have tried to breach U.S. defense computer networks, largely to steal military plans and weapons systems designs, Deputy Defense Secretary William Lynn said Tuesday. While foreign governments and rogue states may try to launch more destructive attacks against military networks, most may stick to theft and spying because they are worried about a U.S. counterattack, he said. The greater threat, Lynn said, are terror groups such as al-Qaida, who are more difficult to deter.
THE UNITED STATES stands with cyberdissidents and democracy activists from the Middle East to China and beyond, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday. She pledged to expand the Obama administration’s efforts to foil Internet repression in autocratic states. In a speech on Internet freedom, Clinton said the administration would spend $25 million this year on initiatives designed to protect bloggers in places like China and Iran and in situations like Egypt’s recent unsuccessful attempt to thwart anti-government protests by simply pulling the plug on online communication.
CHINA IS ORDERING makers of films and TV shows to limit the amount of smoking depicted on-screen, the latest effort to curb rampant tobacco use in the country with the largest number of smokers in the world. The order from the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television viewed Tuesday on its website orders producers to minimize plot lines and scenes involving tobacco and show smoking only when necessary for artistic purposes or character development. Minors younger than 18 cannot be shown smoking or buying cigarettes, and characters may not smoke in places where smoking is banned.

Northern border more secure, panel told By Suzanne Gamboa The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Depictions of the Canadian border as out of control might not be quite accurate because the assessment tools used are outdated, the head of the U.S. Border Patrol told a House panel Tuesday. The Government Accountability Office released a report Feb. 1 that said the Border Patrol can detect illegal activity and make arrests over just 32 of the border’s 4,000 miles, a
situation it calls operational control. That detail received the most attention from a 61-page report. Border Patrol Chief Michael Fisher said his agency’s measure of whether it has operational control of the border “is not in and of itself an assessment of border security.” The measure is used on both the northern and southern border with Mexico. An area may be considered controlled when resources — the number of
agents, technology and infrastructure — are enough to bring the area to an “acceptable” level when agents can be aware of and effectively deal with illegal activity and entries. Fisher said the Border Patrol is working on a new strategy to assess security, although he doesn’t know when it will be ready. The new strategy will be risk-based and depend on information and intelligence “to tell us the intent, the capability and the opposition, while continuing to
assess our vulnerabilities,” he said. Michigan Rep. Candace Miller, chairwoman of the House Homeland Security subcommittee that held the hearing, asked how Congress can reassure Americans the federal government is securing the border if there is not a good measuring tool. “Our border security policy cannot rely on our best guess,” she said. On the nearly 2,000-mile southern border, 873 miles are considered under control. Of those, 129 miles or 15
percent have resources in place to detect and deter illegal entries. The remaining 744 are managed, meaning a violation could result in an apprehension up to 100 miles from the border or not at all. Along the remaining 1,120 miles of the southern border, the Border Patrol can detect but not apprehend about two thirds of the illegal entries. For the remaining one third, agents are unable to detect illegal entries, said Richard Stanna, director of
GAO’s Homeland Security and Justice division. A report Stanna prepared for the hearing says that the Border Patrol is asking its sectors to use existing personnel and infrastructure as a baseline and to request additional resources based on what is needed to respond to priority threats. Since they expect to be more flexible, Border Patrol is asking for fewer resources to secure the border, the report says.

attended by only 10 downtown association members — including a few board members — city staff proposed switching the construction schedule from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. weekdays to 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Working during daylight and evenings, they said, would allow the project to be done by Memorial Day (May 30), seen as the start of the tourism season by downtown merchants. Cutler left that meeting believing he had the support of the association to move to the daytime schedule, he said. He didn’t ask for a vote from the group, merely consensus. One member, Lindi Lumens of Northwest Fudge and Confections,
spoke against it. When asked if the majority supported the move, he received no other objections. But Voyles and another board member, Drew Schwab, who attended the meeting, said Tuesday they weren’t ready to give an answer at the time. “We weren’t prepared for what they told us,” Voyles said.
After hearing of the result of the meeting, many merchants on First Street, concerned that the schedule would be detrimental to their businesses and keep customers out of downtown, began to express frustration over the move among each other.
One of them, Don Zeller of Zeller’s Antique Mall, started a petition that carried 53 signatures from other First Street merchants urging City Hall to maintain the nighttime schedule, even if it meant another month of work. Any loss of customers can be devastating to downtown business owners, many of whom are already struggling, said Brian and Jenice Shaw of The Trading Post. “We don’t care if it takes two months longer,” said Jenice Shaw, as long as work doesn’t occur during the day. Lumens said she is still concerned that her store would have to close, even though construction will be
limited to the weekdays. “I think that if they do it during the day, they will kill a lot of businesses,” she said. Lumens said she will attend the meeting. Zeller said Tuesday that he is looking forward to today’s meeting and plans to speak. “I’m certainly going to give my two cents’ worth,” he said. One First Street merchant has told the Peninsula Daily News that he supports the daytime schedule, but only on the condition of anonymity.

A Port Hadlock man was injured while riding his bicycle when an SUV struck him on state Highway 19 about 2.5 miles south of Port Townsend at about 1 p.m. Tuesday. Allan L. Raichart, 70, of Port Hadlock suffered inju-
ries to the left arm and was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he was listed in serious condition as of Tuesday night. The State Patrol gave this account: Brent L. Potter, 54, of
Chimacum was driving his 1996 GMC Suburban south on Highway 19 near the intersection of Airport Road when the SUV left the road to the right and struck Raichart. Potter was not injured and was wearing a seat belt at the time of the wreck. Raichart was wearing a helmet. Troopers cited Potter with second-degree negligent driving. The State Patrol said neither drugs nor alcohol was a factor in the crash.

PA Symphony changes up Applause! affair By Diane Urbani de la Paz
‘Golden tickets’ still on sale for auction
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — This isn’t your stereotypical fancy affair, even if it is at SunLand Country Club. No, the Feb. 26 Applause! auction, with its Caribbean carnival theme, is like its beneficiary, the Port Angeles Symphony: A serious or snobby attitude just won’t fit in. Take the president of the board of directors, Bob Coates, who will play a key role in the party. “I’ll be there as the balloon man,” Coates promised. He’ll be selling balloons attached to vouchers for restaurants in Sequim and Port Angeles; patrons purchase them to benefit the symphony while dispersal of the multicolored orbs makes the space increasingly festive. Applause! has a new auctioneer this year: Seattle actor Matt Smith, whom symphony conductor Adam Stern, who lives in Seattle, discovered at an auction there. Smith, after assessing the Port Angeles event, has urged the organizers to slim down the number of items in the live auction to emphasize quality over quantity. Another change coming with the new auctioneer: The buyer’s service charges are also a thing of the past. This time, Applause! patrons will have 33 items from which to choose instead of the 40 to 45 of
A FEW “GOLDEN tickets” remain in the annual drawing sponsored by the Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra during its Applause! auction Saturday, Feb. 26. The tickets are $50 each and give buyers a chance to choose any one of the items offered in the event’s live auction. Among the choices are a trip for two to Hawaii and a weeklong stay for two at a condominium in New Orleans’ French Quarter. To buy a golden ticket, phone the Port Angeles Symphony office at 360-457-5579. Peninsula Daily News Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra
past years. Among the highlights are a two-hour helicopter tour, a week for two in New Orleans’ French Quarter and a trip for two to Oahu, Kauai or the Big Island of Hawaii. Home-cooked gourmet dinners, including one with pianist Deborah Rambo Sinn providing a musical course of Beethoven, will also go up for bid.
Silent auction items Then there are three tables loaded with silent auction items — totaling about 100 gift certificates and other goods from local merchants. “Without their help, we would just fall flat,” Coates said of the businesses that give to Applause! every year. Dinner is likewise lavish, with a choice of lingcod,
roasted chicken, New York steak or the vegetarian option, prepared by chef Brian Lippert. A quartet from Port Angeles High School will supply an undercurrent of music, and “we start the evening with sparkling wine,” added symphony board member Chuck Whitney. “It’s a lot of fun” from start to finish, he said. Fun, yes, but also “terribly important,” in the words of Mark Wendeborn, executive director of the Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra. Applause! supplies about 14 percent of the symphony’s $250,000 annual operating budget, he noted. Only 40 percent of the symphony budget comes from ticket sales to the 13 concerts that compose each season. It’s rare for a community
At the 2010 Applause! auction are Port Angeles Symphony supporters, seated from left at table, Don Corson, Mary Ann Unger, Vicki Corson, Ruth Schermer, Joy Lingerfelt and Kathy Balducci. Standing are Randee Slehofer, Cecil White, Dick Van Calcar, Melinda Szatlocky and Vicki Van Calcar. the size of Port Angeles to have an orchestra of this caliber — and to sustain it, Wendeborn said, adding that this is the symphony’s 79th season. Its 80 musicians range from teenagers to octogenarians, he said, and together, they reflect the community’s love of live music.
‘Entrusted’ by founders “We’ve been entrusted by [the founders] 80 years ago to keep this orchestra going for future generations,” Wendeborn said. Yet Coates added that fundraising grows more difficult each year. Port Angeles now has numerous arts organizations, and many
hold fundraising auctions. With Applause!, he said, the symphony started the trend toward such events a few decades ago. One more aspect Coates wants to emphasize: the Applause! “dessert dash,” which he said has an improved format this year: The guests at each table will be able to pool their money in a kitty, and whichever table accumulates the highest amount will have first choice of the high-end desserts donated by board members. “They are really luscious,” Coates promised. All of this activity is, of course, in the name of bringing live music, from Handel and Mozart to Cop-
land and Bernstein, to the people of Clallam County. And even as budget stresses continue, Wendeborn is upbeat. Running this symphony “is absolutely the best job you could have in the world,” he said. Tickets to Applause! are $75 including dinner, wine, entertainment and bidding in the live and silent auctions. Doors open at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 26, at the SunLand Golf & Country Club, 109 Hilltop Drive, Sequim. Information awaits at 360457-5579 and www. PortAngelesSymphony.org. Seating is limited, and patrons are urged to make reservations this week.

Prison killing stalls religious programs By Rikki King
The Daily Herald
MONROE — They see it as shining light in a dark place. Every year, hundreds of volunteers go behind bars at the Monroe Correctional Complex to bring Biendl hope and faith to inmates. Religious programs at the prison have ground to a halt since corrections officer Jayme Biendl was slain at her post on Jan. 29. Byron Scherf, 52, a convicted rapist already serving a life sentence, is the prime suspect. The killing has focused public attention on a place normally hidden from view — the prison chapel — where many inmates make an earnest effort to find God and the good in themselves. Those who volunteer there aren’t sure what lies ahead. Since Biendl’s killing, prison officials met twice with dozens of religious volunteers to address their questions and concerns. Volunteers came from around the state, said John Burkholder, pastor for prison ministries at Cascade Community Church in Monroe.
Providing services About 70 religious organizations provide services to the Washington State Reformatory, where Biendl was posted and Scherf was housed. It is one of five prisons within the Monroe complex. Religious programs are a critical outlet for inmates, said Joenne McGerr, who oversees religious, volunteer and family programs for the Corrections Department. It goes beyond the Bible, she said. Religious services help curb prison violence. The chapel volunteers pro-
vide good role models. They teach inmates social skills, such as respecting themselves and others. Volunteers can help inmates address their physical, mental and spiritual needs, Burkholder said. They help ready them for life outside. “There’s a lot of wounds and a lot of mental anguish that have to be healed while you’re working with this stuff,” he said. The historical records for the reformatory chapel are under lockdown as part of the police investigation. However, McGerr of the Corrections Departments said it is her understanding that the chapel was built decades ago using community donations.
Help from outside Religious services are conducted mostly by volunteers. Community groups donate supplies and resources. Many of the costs are borne by the Offender Betterment Fund, which is supported by offenders and their families. The Corrections Department is required by law to have chaplains in each prison, spokesman Chad Lewis said. Newer laws say the state cannot pay to build chapels, but they can be built with donations. Volunteers generally work in the prison chapels. Along with traditional worship services, they organize Bible studies, church history classes and religious movie showings. It’s tough work, but it’s a calling, said Penny Castro, volunteer placement coordinator for Prisoners For Christ Outreach Ministries, based in Woodinville. Volunteers are eager to get back in once the lockdowns are lifted, she said. For many inmates, the chapel is a place to seek change. Steve Clines has been volunteering at Monroe for
about 10 years through Prisoners For Christ. He’s seen inmates leave gangs and racist groups as a result. Still, volunteers understand that some inmates will come to the chapel for the wrong reasons. It can be a place to get away from the danger and dullness of prison life. Inmates know they can relax there a little, said Randi Knaus, who has been volunteering at the prison for 27 years. Inmates often try to manipulate religious volunteers, he said. Volunteers undergo hours of training before they can visit prison, Burkholder said. They learn policies and protocols. Annual refresher courses are mandatory. Violence in the chapel is extremely unusual, Clines said. In his decade visiting Monroe, he’s only heard of one scuffle between inmates. Clines said he knew Scherf, but he and others didn’t know the details of his violent past. Volunteers don’t ask inmates about their crimes. However, many inmates share their histories as they build personal relationships and work to change their lives, he said. To his knowledge, Scherf never did that. Volunteers don’t know when they’ll be back in the prison. The magnitude of what happened is still sinking in. Every aspect of prison operations is under scrutiny, including the chapel. Prison officials meet daily to discuss the return to normal operations. After the police investigation, the Corrections Department plans a Critical Incident Review, led by prison administrators from around the state, Lewis said. The National Institute of Corrections also plans an independent review in the coming weeks, at the governor’s request.

He died February 12, 2011, in Port Angeles. In his early life, the family moved to Kansas, where he and his brothers and sister grew up. He graduated from the Fort Scott High School in 1942, and also attended the Junior College at Fort Scott. On December 24, 1944, he married Lula May Strohm, to whom he was married for 66 years.

He worked for Tradewell Grocery for 17 years, and then went to logging. He got a mail contract in 1970, which his wife worked for years. His son, Richard, soon joined his father and formed the Elder and Son logging company. He became interested in the Boy Scouts and served as Scoutmaster for nine years. He retired in 1990. For many years, he sang with the community
choirs, sang in the church choir and worked with a property and maintenance church group for many years.

Clallam funds drug, mental health help By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Clallam County approved $382,500 in contracts Tuesday to help low-income people with chemical dependencies or mental health problems. The eight contracts were funded by the one-tenth of 1 percent sales tax that the state Legislature approved in 2006 to assist unfunded clients with drug addictions, brain disorders or both. Unfunded clients are those who meet low-income guidelines but are ineligible for other funding. Judith Anderson, treatment coordinator for the Clallam County Health and Human Services Department, said the county will award 15 contracts worth a combined $872,500 in 2011. “They are similar to last year’s contracts,” Anderson said. Treatment providers throughout the county bid for the contracts. The county funnels state money to the providers. “We simply do the fiscal piece of it,” Anderson explained. Asked if the economy has driven up demand for chemical and mental health services, Anderson said: “Absolutely, yes.” “Certainly more people have lost jobs,” she said. The one-year contracts approved Tuesday are: ■ $111,500 to Peninsula Community Mental Health Center to provide behavioral health services to juveniles in the court system. ■ $89,000 to Peninsula Community Mental Health Center for psychiatric nurse practitioner services for patients with co-occurring disorders.
■ $42,500 to New Growth Behavioral Health Services Inc. for mental health services. ■ Two contracts to Dr. Marian Birch totaling $33,000 for postpartum depression treatment and education. ■ $71,000 to Trillium Treatment Center of Port Angeles to treat low-income adults for chemical dependency. ■ $29,000 to Bill Maier for mental health services. ■ $6,500 to Cedar Grove counseling clinic of Port Angeles for chemical dependency treatment. Anderson said the providers have to work together. For example, if a patient gets a chemical dependency assessment and is found to also have mental health problem, that patient is referred to a mental health specialist.
$1 million annually
About half of the $360,930 contract is covered by a state grant from the Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. The exterior and main floor interior work is scheduled to be completed Thursday. The board also approved a cooperators agreement with the Sequim-Dungeness Water Users Association and the state Department of Ecology to establish guidelines for water management in the Dungeness Valley. A work group has been formed to try to implement Ecology-mandated instream flow rule within the next 18 months. Meanwhile, Helen Hamilton was appointed to the Housing Authority Board as a resident representative. Stephen Deutermann was appointed to fill an unexpired term on the Civil Service Commission through March 2013. Skye Eastman-Newlin, Diane Wheeler and Bill Plumley were reappointed to the Developmental Disabilities Advisory Committee for terms that end in December 2013. There are openings for five more positions on this board. Dan McKeen, Clover Gowing, Carey Melmed and Lorraine Wall were reappointed to the Public Health Advisory Committee for terms ending in December 2013.
The county distributes about $1 million per year from the sales tax, commonly referred to as the Hargrove fund, named for state Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam, who sponsored the legislation. “If you look at some of the contracts we signed today, those folks are getting professional help instead of sitting in the county jail,” Commissioner Mike Chapman said. Another round of chemical dependency and mental health contracts will be awarded next week, Anderson said.

Chetzemoka pushed City leaders target onto sandbar, idled signage in Sequim Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — The 3-monthold MV Chetzemoka was blown onto a sandbar in 50 mph winds at Whidbey Island on Tuesday night in what one official called a “soft grounding.” Whether the ferry, which reportedly sustained no damage, will sail today was being determined by Washington State Ferries. Four round trips scheduled tonight were already adjusted for tidal corrections. The vessel hit against sand and ran aground early Tuesday evening, Ferries spokeswoman Marta Coursey said. Most passengers did not notice, and all disembarked without incident, she said. Divers were dispatched to make sure the ferry sustained no damage from the

incident, but the rest of Tuesday’s sailings between Port Townsend and Coupeville (Keystone) were canceled. Before the Tuesday night “soft grounding,” as Coursey told KIRO-TV, State Ferries had already adjusted several sailings tonight because of tidal conditions at Keystone Harbor. The 6:45 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. sailings from Port Townsend and 7:30 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. sailings from Coupeville are affected. Unless idled because of Tuesday night’s grounding or weather conditions, the Chetzemoka will depart at 7:25 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. from Port Townsend and 8:05 p.m. and 9:25 p.m. from Coupeville.

Probe begins into West End death By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News
FORKS — Authorities are investigating events leading up to the apparently accidental death of Sam Gaydeski, a member of the prominent West End family, by a mechanical brush cutter. Gaydeski, 50, of Beaver was killed Monday while on the job clearing brush for the state Department of Natural Resources near Clearwater in West Jefferson County. “This is truly a loss for the Forks community,” said Mayor Bryon Monohon. “Sam will be missed. His family is a very well-known family here in the community.” The body was found in the late evening Monday on White Rock Road, said Jefferson County Sheriff’s Chief Criminal Deputy Joe Nole. Gaydeski apparently was killed by the blade of the brush cutter he was operating, Nole said. Although the Sheriff’s
Office is still investigating the events leading up to his death, it appears to be an accident, Nole said. An autopsy will be performed as part of the investigation, he said. A celebration of life service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at The Round House, 110 Business Park, at the intersection of state Highway 110 and U.S. Highway 101. Gaydeski had worked for the Department of Natural Resources since April 2006, when he began as a truck driver, said Bryan Flint, director of communications and outreach for the state agency. In May 2007, he was promoted to heavy equipment operator, which was his job title at the time of his death. “We are all sad to lose someone from our hardworking work force,” Flint said. Gaydeski was clearing weeds near the side of the
DNR road, Flint said. When he didn’t return after the day’s work, his supervisor went in search and found the body at the side of the road, Flint said. Flint said DNR will investigate to determine the circumstances surrounding Gaydeski’s death. Also investigating will be the state Department of Labor and Industries, Nole said. He is also survived by his wife, Deborah Hurn Gaydeski, and three children, Mason Gaydeski, Marin Gaydeski and Morgan Gaydeski. Gaydeski is a nephew of former Clallam County Commissioner Lawrence Gaydeski. Other relatives are business owners, mainly in construction and logging, on the West End.

‘Blazing Bagels’ case City Attorney Craig Ritchie said the city had a “perfectly good sign ordinance” until a court challenge known as the “Blazing Bagels” case out of the Seattle suburb of Redmond. The issue for changes in

agreed with Huizinga “unless there is a compelling public interest.” Miller supported fines for sign code violators.
‘Trashy’ signage Councilwoman Susan Lorenzen said sandwich board signs were “inevitable” in a small town such as Sequim, and she saw the need to focus on size, quality and quantity of such signs, avoiding “trashy” signage. Ritchie said because political speech seems to have a higher value, it would be more difficult to regulate campaign signs over commercial signs. Mayor Pro Tem Laura Dubois called for a limit on garage sale signs and a ban on signs attached to power poles. She also asked Burkett to get the sign question in a city survey online soon. Inflatable signs, such as the giant yellow duck put up to promote the annual Duck Derby fundraiser for the Olympic Medical Center Foundation, should also be regulated as to how long they can be inflated. Ritchie recommended that the city track by name those who take out garage sale signs to discourage the fencing of stolen goods — but without making the process too difficult. “What we’re trying to do is not make it a major production to have a garage sale,” Ritchie said.
The city is allowed to regulate the size and structure of a sign, the quantity of signs and how long they can be posted, but it cannot regulate the message, according to Ritchie. During a City Council meeting this week, some council members called for an outright ban. “The easiest way is to ban sandwich boards from down Main Street,” Councilman Don Hall said, noting that Sequim’s problem looks too much like that in downtown Port Townsend. Ritchie agreed, saying, “That’s the simplest way, and that’s what can be done.” Councilman Bill Huiz________ inga called for a ban of all Sequim-Dungeness Valley Edisigns within the public right tor Jeff Chew can be reached at of way. 360-681-2391 or at jeff.chew@ Councilman Ted Miller peninsuladailynews.com.

SEQUIM — Commercial signs that stick out on sidewalks, curbs and other locations to block motorists’ visibility are being targeted by city leaders. Officials want to tighten up the sign ordinance to crack down on so-called sandwich board signs and plan to present their proposals to members of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce, Sequim Association of Realtors and Sequim Rotary Clubs in March. The officials said they want to hear thoughts about how to regulate signs — and how much to regulate them. Many of the signs are used by real estate agents to direct motorists down streets to homes for sale. City Manager Steve Burkett said the idea is to craft a new sign ordinance that is “something in the middle” — between the extremes of allowing all sandwich board and other temporary business signs or banning them outright. “Is there a problem with all of these signs?” Burkett said. “If there is, we need to find some way to regulate them.”
Sequim’s sign ordinance was presented in September, the result of a 9th Circuit Court case in 2006 in which judges invalidated the city of Redmond’s ordinance that prohibited off-premises commercial signs, except real estate open-house directional signs. The court held Redmond’s ordinance to be an improper content-based regulation. Ritchie said in terms of “risk avoidance,” a revision of the city’s ordinance was preferable to present enforcement of Sequim’s current code. “Normally, everyone agrees that there is too much clutter of signs but rarely agree on the solution, especially as applicable to an individual’s own sign,” Ritchie said.
has a $5 optional fee Continued from A1 Washington currently has an optional $5 vehicle registration fee to support state parks — the result of Kessler’s legislation approved in 2009. HB 1796 would abolish the opt-out donation program. Under the new legislation, the $30 annual pass would be optional, but those who choose not to buy one would have to purchase the $10 day-pass instead. Violators would face a $99 fine.

In her proposed budget for the 2011-2013 spending period, Gov. Chris Gregoire suggested slashing the Parks and Recreation budget by 52 percent, while the Fish & Wildlife budget would face a 47 percent cut. Without a new source of revenue, many recreation sites would have to close, agency leaders said. “This is alternative funding that would allow us to keep open our facilities and trails,” Department of Natural Resources supervisor Lenny Young said of the proposed access fee.

The department already has shut down 12 recreation facilities and reduced services at 44 others, he said.
California compared Countering Kessler at Tuesday’s hearing, several testified that the state has run out of options and that people would adapt to the fees just as they have in dozens of other states. In California, for example, 125 parks charge a dayuse fee, and an annual parking pass costs $125 — more than four times what HB 1796 is proposing. Maintaining public lands isn’t just about providing recreation options; it’s a sound economic investment, said Jennifer Quan, the lands division manager at the Department of Fish & Wildlife. Fishing, hunting and wildlife-watching generate $4.5 billion each year for the state economy, she said. “These lands are integral to the quality of life in Washington on many levels,” Quan said.

Spotted owl just can’t catch a break IT WAS ANOTHER tough week in the news. Federal biologists said they were ready to Pat pull the trigger Neal on a new plan to save the spotted owl. It seems that the barred owl, a recent immigrant from Canada, has been victimizing the endangered spotted owl by stealing its habitat, nests and mates, and then are forced to lay the eggs of an unnatural hybrid. Canada has a long history of sending its problem birds to America. The Canada goose is a large, winged pest whose loud honking is responsible for noise pollution. Canada geese produce huge quantities of a bio-hazard waste that pollutes our lawns and waterways with unpronounceable bacteria.
While the Canada goose poses a threat to our environment, another invader from the Great White North, the Canada jay, can affect our quality of life. This rapacious invader will steal anything that isn’t nailed down. The Canada jay has ruined so many American family picnics it is called “The Camp Robber.” Now we are faced with yet another threat to our American way of life from the sleeping giant to the north, the Canadian barred owl. Do we have to wait for the day when the ethereal “hoot” of an American owl is replaced by the “eh” of the Canadian owl? Or witness the horror of a Canadian owl swooping down to rob the back bacon off our picnic tables before we realize there is a problem? No. For years, Canadian birds have taken advantage of an open-door policy that allows them to migrate back and forth across our borders. While politicians and law enforcement officials have long
A barred owl overlooked the alien bird migration problem, some hardworking federal biologists have come up with a solution. Barred owls had better straighten up and fly right if they know what is good for them. The last critter that crossed the biologists was the hickoryshirted logger. The biologists whipped the loggers so badly they mostly either went extinct or moved to Alaska. It turns out the loggers might
Peninsula Voices Cats: ‘Scapegoats’ While I am a bird lover and agree with Sunday “Bird Watch” columnist Joan Carson’s observation (“No Easy Answer To Feral Cat Problem,” Feb. 13 PDN) that domestic cats are best kept safely inside their guardians’ homes or on their cat-fenced property, I must strongly disagree with her reckless contention that feral cats “kill vast numbers of birds.” Having worked directly with animals for most of my life (including being the 24-hour caretaker of the cats at a local sanctuary for a number of years), I became aware of scientific studies reported by Alley Cat Allies of Washington, D.C., which exonerated cats from being a significant threat to bird populations. In these studies, the stomach contents of deceased stray and feral cats were analyzed, and it was discovered that less than 5 percent of those contents consisted of fowl. About 30 percent was rodent. The remaining 70 percent was “other.” Contrary to popular opinion, cats are not especially good bird catchers. They are much better at catching mice, rats and other critters that humans generally find to be unpleasant and are only
have gotten off easy. The biologists plan to deal with the barred owl the old-fashioned way — shoot them. I know what you twinkle-toed birdwatching types are thinking. How can you shoot such a beautiful, intelligent, trusting creature like the barred owl, that just sits on a branch and watches with their big sad eyes while you pull the trigger? It’s easy, that’s how. You don’t have to lead them at all. Shooting the barred owl, however, is not a viable alternative. Because, while one group of biologists is busy shooting owls to save owls, another dedicated group of their biologist colleagues just got done transplanting a bunch of fishers into spotted-owl habitat. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence these fishers came from Canada. Unfortunately, this tree-climbing member of the weasel family lists the spotted owl as its favorite item on the menu! Meanwhile, still more biologists survey the spotted owl population.

They do this by calling the spotted owl during the mating season, when many of us sensitive woodland creatures are the most vulnerable. When the spotted owl answers the bogus mating call, they reveal their location to myriad predators, including the fisher and the barred owl. Still more dedicated biologists put radio collars on spotted owls to see if they can still fly. With all the surveying and studying, no wonder the owls are endangered. I’m surprised there is one left. Maybe if the biologists really wanted to determine the cause of the continued decline of the spotted owl, they should look in the mirror. ________ Pat Neal is a North Olympic Peninsula fishing guide and “wilderness gossip columnist.” Neal can be reached at 360683-9867 or e-mail at email@example.com.

rarely successful in capturing one of those birds we find so appealing. Cats have become undeserved scapegoats for declining songbird populations. Birds are endangered by pollution, pesticides and destruction of the South American rain forest. The danger from feral cats is so minimal as to be hardly worth mentioning. Cats have suffered enough unjustified abuse in world history and in our own community without having more heaped upon them by an uninformed column writer who simply doesn’t know the facts.

Flailing like a turtle on High Divide hike WHILE I MAY get back to High Divide in Olympic National Park before I take that last walk on the Trail to Oblivion, I likely won’t be Seabury doing it when Blair Jr. there’s 5 or 10 feet of snow on the ground. I’m too old and out of shape. The last time I backpacked to High Divide was a March outing nearly a decade ago. It was clearly insanity, thinking I could tote skis and gear for a four-day stay as easily as I had many times, years before.
In the first place, it took me nearly two days just to get there. Those of you who are familiar with the Upper Sol Duc River Trail to Heart Lake and High Divide know it is a distance of about 9 miles and 3,000 vertical feet. That means that I was barreling up the trail at about 4.5 miles per day, or roughly one-half mile per hour. A banana slug could have made better time. In my defense, I can tell you that walking any trail covered or partially covered by snow is not as easy as backpacking the same trail in the summer. Deadfalls must be detoured or ducked, which is always a messy operation when you’ve got a couple feet of skis sticking out of

your pack, above your head. You get halfway under the cedar blocking the trail, then the Spirit of the Forest reaches down and flips you backward into the snow, and you lie there like an overturned turtle, unable to lift yourself and your heavy backpack out of the snow. As likely as not, before you can roll over and recover, the snow that accumulated on the fallen cedar’s branches loses its grip and plops on your face. If you’ve been on the Upper Sol Duc Trail, you’ll know that there are comfortable and convenient foot-logs — some with railings — which make crossing the river easy. A little more than five miles up the trail, I found the foot-log across the river covered with
about 2 feet of snow, plus 2 inches of hard ice. This particular log was about 15 feet above the river, and the handrail was of little use, since I would have had to bend in half to grasp it. My backpack would have seen yet another opportunity to push me face-down into the snow. So I found the horse ford and waded across the river. It was cold. Have I mentioned that on the way back, I fell into the river and could not lift myself from the icy water because my pack was trying to drown me? My infinitely younger and stronger hiking companion rescued me. I may have even written this myself a time or two: You only remember the fun

City might pare panel By Jeff Chew
Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — City Planning Commission members have asked the City Council to pare the advisory panel back two members because the city is having difficulty recruiting new commissioners for a seven-member panel. “The Planning Commission agreed that the number should be five instead of seven because for several months, the Planning Commission didn’t get any applicants,” City Councilman Don Hall told his fellow council members Monday night. The council only discussed the matter and will formally consider cutting back the commission at its next meeting. A vacancy on the Planning Commission has been advertised on the city’s website since October.
members, the council needs to reconsider the commission’s option. Ritchie said commissions have five or seven members normally. Some cities and counties have a single hearing examiner instead of a planning commission, he said. Councilman Ted Miller said he believes the city should be encouraging people to apply for openings rather than cut the Planning Commission’s size. Councilwoman Susan Lorenzen suggested the council require a commission of at least five members, not more than seven, and most members must live within the city. Applications are available at Sequim City Hall, 152 W. Cedar St., Sequim, WA 98382, by phoning 360683-4139 or by visiting the website at www.ci.sequim. wa.us.

PORT ANGELES — Bobby Beeman, a six-year employee with Olympic Medical Center, recently earned her graduate degree in communication and leadership studies from Gonzaga University. Beeman’s capstone thesis, required for graduation from the program, applied “agenda-set- Beeman ting theory” to a study of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil disaster and the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill. She investigated the methods used by newspapers covering the two disasters and how the coverage potentially influenced public perception of the events. “It is a laudable accomplishment to earn a graduate degree while working full time,” said Rhonda Curry, assistant administrator of strategic development. “Bobby is a highly valued employee who is recognized for her personal initiative.” Beeman, who has worked in the strategic development department since January 2005, was recently named communication and health promotions coordinator. She co-chairs Olympic Medical’s wellness committee and will be actively involved in developing wellness activities among Olympic Medical employees and in the community.

Teen arrested on investigation of arson in 101 weigh station fire Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — A 16-year-old Clallam County boy was arrested Monday on investigation of seconddegree arson for allegedly setting fire to the State Patrol weigh station near U.S. Highway 101 and Old Olympic Highway east of Port Angeles. Clallam County sheriff’s deputies did not identify the boy because he is a juvenile. Sheriff ’s Sgt. Lyman Moores said the boy will be charged in Clallam County Superior Court today. The Sheriff’s Office took the lead in the investigation after a Border Patrol officer
discovered the fire in the early-morning hours of Feb. 2. The suspect was booked into the Clallam County Family Juvenile Services Detention Center on Sunday on an unrelated assault investigation and confessed that he had set fire to the weigh station.
Said he ran from scene Deputies said he confessed that he ran from the scene — careful to remove all evidence such as the gas can and matches — and watched from across the highway as agents from the U.S. Border Patrol extinguished the fire.
He also confessed that he had returned to the scene several days later to assess the damage he had caused to the weigh station, deputies said. Black singe marks were found at the bottom of

Windy, cold for Arctic Open TYPICALLY I USE my Saturday and Sunday mornings to catch back up on my nasty sleeping habit. Forgive me for my weekend laziness, I’m up and at them at 5:25 a.m. Monday through Friday. Mother Nature interMichael vened to knock me from my long Carman winter’s nap at 9:18 a.m. last Saturday, when a wind gust clocked at 52 mph rattled the Morgan Hill home in Port Townsend where I had spent the night. That same moment a few blocks down the hill at Port Townsend Golf Club, a hardy band of brave and somewhat foolish men and women from around the North Olympic Peninsula were playing in the club’s 25th annual Arctic Open. This event is touted as the one tournament that goes on in weather even mail carriers shy away from. And it will continue to deserve that moniker. Despite that gust and sustained winds of 30-40 mph, competitors in the Arctic Open played on. “The conditions on Saturday were without a doubt the toughest I had ever seen,” Port Townsend head pro Mike Early said. “For the first time in 25 years there was discussion of delaying the round, and maybe even cancellation altogether. “This was definitely a case of survival but, if you are going to play winter golf on the Olympic Peninsula you had better be tough, and the 70 players who signed up for this tournament know that on the bottom of the entry form it reads ‘we will play no matter what.’” Everybody warmed up back home and were treated to a sunny and calm Sunday for the tourney’s second round. Gary Thorne and Mark Mitrovich of Peninsula Golf Club in Port Angeles shot a 65 to pass Port Townsend assistant pro Gabriel Tonan and recent Port Townsend High School grad Ronnie Harrell and win their third Arctic Open gross championship. Port Townsend golfers Jerry Speickerman and Rich Boyd shot 60-61 to win the net division by three strokes over Jim Fultz and Buddy O’Meara. In the mixed division, Dave and Deb Nyblom bested Vicki Handyside and Wanda Synnestvedt for the trophy. “We would like to say a special thanks to Marine View Beverage for their continued support for this tournament,” Early said. “Their donations help us to raise money for Junior Golf at Port Townsend Golf Club, which in turn allows young people who might not get the chance to play golf the opportunity to experience this great game.” Amen to that, golf needs as many young players as possible to keep this good thing going.

Swing from the hips in this one, male players will play the black tees at 6,710 yards while the ladies will take a crack at 6,070 yards of golf course. Turn

PEORIA, Ariz. — Other than a new Mohawk-style haircut and a wispy beard, Mariners ace Felix Hernandez maintains that nothing much has changed in his life since he won the AL Cy Young Award. “A lot of people know me now,” said Hernandez, who threw his first pitches of spring training Tuesday, “but it’s not changing anything. Same life, same guy.” That seems just fine by Seattle manager Eric Wedge. “I would never take him for granted,” Wedge said. “He’s a special young man, with special ability and we’re proud to have him lead our pitching staff.”

Compares to Sabathia Wedge recalls a similar situation when he managed in Cleveland and had a young and successful starting pitcher in C.C. Sabathia developing into a team leader. Hernandez seems to be evolving into that as well, often spending time with the younger Spanish-speaking players in the mornings before workouts and offering advice, or maybe just laughing with teammates who hang on his every word. Winning a Cy Young tends to give a player some major credibility. Couple that with the fact that Hernandez is charismatic in the clubhouse, and the

Opening Day starter Wedge has the right-hander locked in as the Opening Day starter and he and his coaches will put together a program of
pitching and rest for Hernandez. In the meantime, Hernandez is getting to know his new manager. “I told you, he’s intense,” Hernandez said. “See his eyes? Like he’s going to win. That’s good for us. We’ve got a lot of young people here and it’s tough.” But life is still pretty good for the man known throughout the big leagues as King Felix. “It’s my life, baseball, and I love it,” Hernandez said.
SEATTLE — Ken Griffey Jr. is returning to the Seattle Mariners as a special consultant less than a year after abruptly retiring from baseball. The Mariners made the announcement on Tuesday morning.

Griffey retired midseason last year and drove off to his Florida home. He has not returned to Seattle since. “Kenny has come back home,” team President Chuck Armstrong said Tuesday. Turn
PT girls coach wants out of league COULD IT BE that Port Townsend athletics will call a different league home in 2012? If Port Townsend girls basketball coach Matt Randy Maag had his way, the Redskins Schubert would be doing so sooner than that. Fed up with how the schools’ current alignment treats his team out of the Olympic League, the sevenyear head coach wants instant change. “I think we need to move next year if possible,” said Maag, who champions a switch from the multi-classification Olympic to Class 1A Nisqually. “This year was just a disaster in my mind.” Of course, that isn’t a choice since Port Townsend is locked into the Olympic League through the end of this reclassification cycle (2010-12). But if ever an argument were to be made for the Redskins to switch leagues, the last two weeks of this year’s basketball season would be Exhibit A. That begins with the complete confusion concerning how Port Townsend qualified for postseason play.

The 6-foot-8 post went off for a game-high 30 points, scoring inside and out against a Quilcene team that couldn’t quite keep up offensively. “We just had a rough time shooting the ball tonight,” Quilcene coach Mark Thompson said. “It was kind of the story of our season.” The Rangers ended up going two and out in the 1B Tri-District, their first postseason appearance after a one-year hiatus. They graduate two seniors in C.J. Schreier and Brancroft, the latter a 1,000-point scorer for Quilcene. “We’ve got a lot of kids that are coming up,” Thompson said. “We might struggle a little bit next year depending upon how hard they want to work, but the year after and the year after that are looking pretty good. “It was a good experience for our yougner guys to get a taste of playoff basketball. We’ll see how hard they want to work this summer.”

Few know that better than Wheeler, who has coached 50 of Forks’ 52 state placers.

For the first time in 14 years, Port Townsend was unable to qualify any of its wrestlers for state. Justin Mead came close at 119 pounds, taking fourth to qualify as an alternate. Barring any injuries at that weight between now and Friday, nary a Redskin will wrestle in the Tacoma Dome. “We thought going in to the tournament that we had one real good shot and then several outside chances,” Port Townsend coach Joey Johnson said. “For the most part the kids wrestled about as well as they could and really wrestled hard.
“The lack of experience, however, was the deciding factor in this tournament.” The Redskins’ streak of state participants was the second-longest on the Peninsula to Forks. The Spartans have had at least one wrestler at state dating all the way back to 1983 at the earliest. (Side note: That 1983 year cannot be completely verified since a full bracket is unavailable. All we know for certain is no Forks wrestlers placed.)

The Red Devils were named WIAA Outstanding Scholar Athletes this winter after reaching a team grade point average of 3.5 or better. Neah Bay’s girls have been WIAA Distinguished Scholar Athletes the past few years, but never broke the 3.5 mark. Not only did the Red Devils (21-1 overall) do that this season, they also finished unbeaten in NOL play for the third straight year.

Politics & Environment
Foreign takeover another seismic shift for NYSE Peninsula Daily News news services
NEW YORK — On the tickers snaking above the New York Stock Exchange’s old wooden trading floor, the big news Tuesday was the exchange itself. Deutsche Boerse would indeed be buying the Big Board, the electronic ticker said, confirming reports that broke last week. The proposed acquisition by its German rival was another sign of capitalism’s gravitational shift away from New York. Duncan Niederauer, NYSE Euronext chief executive, appeared on the floor after the announcement Tuesday and reassured traders that their historic venue would not be going anywhere, but there were still plenty of mixed feelings. “There’s a lot going on in here,” said longtime trader Ted Weisberg, pointing at his head. “What’s sad is that you have an institution of this stature that for whatever reasons finds it necessary to
be part of a larger organization, rather than a standalone organization.” The all-stock deal values NYSE Euronext at about $10 billion. NYSE Euronext shareholders would receive 0.47 share of the new company for each share they currently own. Deutsche Boerse shareholders would own 60 percent of the new entity. The combined company would be able to slash $400 million in annual operating costs and would be in better position to compete against other stock exchanges. The new company would be incorporated in the Netherlands with dual headquarters in New York and the German financial capital of Frankfurt.
No name yet Underscoring the political sensitivity of the issue, a name has not been settled upon. U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., called for
NYSE to be first in the exchange’s new name. The takeover by a foreign rival is the latest seismic shift to strike the NYSE. Founded in 1792 under a buttonwood tree, not far from the current building at Wall and Broad streets, the NYSE, along with other U.S. exchanges, has had to revamp itself in recent years to fend off dozens of upstart electronic rivals offering faster and cheaper stock trades. The exchange transformed itself from a member-run organization into a publicly traded company in 2006 and bought a European rival the following year. And though the NYSE is the most famous place in the world for trading stocks, that business has been on a long decline, the victim of both regulation and off-site computer technology. The new company would derive the biggest chunk of its revenue — 37 percent — from trading in deriva-
tives, sophisticated financial instruments that derive their value from other assets. “We’ve already said we cannot rely on [stock trading], which is what takes place on the floor that everyone sees every day. That cannot be our core strategy in the long run,” Niederauer said. This deal is politically sensitive because the NYSE’s headquarters have been a prominent patriotic symbol since the September 2001 terrorist attacks a few blocks away. An American flag flies over every trading station. A black prisoner of war flag hangs over the entire floor. Domenic Digesaro, who runs a food cart just across from the exchange with an American flag sticker on the side, expressed shock that the deal could happen. “When I heard, I was like, ‘What?!’” Digesaro said. “I didn’t know people could buy into the stock exchange. I thought it was a U.S. thing.”
Giants Qwest, CenturyLink expect merger by April 1 The Associated Press
DENVER — Qwest Communications International Inc. said Tuesday it is planning for its buyout by CenturyLink Inc. to close April 1. Edward Mueller, chairman and CEO of Denverbased Qwest, said “substantial progress” has been made to date on the proposed merger of the two telecoms.
He noted that the deal has been approved by 18 states, with four to go. Federal Communications Commission action on the buyout is expected after that. “While the timing of the receipt of these approvals cannot be predicted with certainty, we currently expect to receive all required approvals in the first quarter and are planning toward an April 1 clos-
ing date,” Mueller said in a statement. Monroe, La.-based CenturyLink agreed to buy Qwest in April 2010 in a deal currently valued at about $22 billion, including a $10.6 billion stock swap. Qwest, which provides telephone service in 14 states in the West and Midwest, services 1.3 million telephone lines in Washington state, making it the state’s largest local
phone company. CenturyLink is the fourth-largest local phone company in the United States and the third-largest in Washington state. It services 200,000 phone lines in Washington state’s smaller cities and in rural area such as the Forks-West End area of Clallam County and the Quilcene-Brinnon area of Jefferson County.
Starbucks announces brew-up of single-serve coffee in hotels The Associated Press
SEATTLE — Starbucks Corp. has brewed up a deal to provide single-serve coffee to half a million hotel rooms, a major step into a small but fast-growing market. The company announced Tuesday that it will provide coffee for Courtesy Products’ CVI single-serve coffee systems beginning this fall. The companies did not disclose the value of
the deal. Starbucks has tried to reach a wider array of coffee drinkers, recently adding its Via instant coffee line. The company said customers should “look for further announcements” as it expands further into the single-serve business. The deal follows reports last weekend that Starbucks was in talks with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters to provide coffee
for its popular Keurig Brewing system. “At this very early stage, there are numerous contenders and no demonstrated, long-term winners related to either format or machines,” Jeff Hansberry, president of Starbucks Consumer Products Group, said in a statement. Starbucks wants to expand in the segment as it ends its agreement with Kraft Foods Inc., under
which Starbucks provides coffee discs for Kraft Foods’ Tassimo one-cup brewer. Kraft also distributes the coffee giant’s products to retailers through this agreement. Starbucks plans to end the partnership March 1, but the termination remains mired in a legal dispute. Courtesy Products is a privately held company based in St. Louis.

women, particularly those who give birth at small or rural hospitals that lack round-the-clock anesthesiologists.
Vigor says Todd part of company
SAN FRANCISCO — The use of nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, during childbirth fell out of favor in the United States decades ago. Just two hospitals — the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle and the University of California Medical Center in San Francisco — still offer it. But interest in returning the dentist office staple to the delivery room is growing. More hospitals plan to start offering it, the federal government is reviewing it and, after a long hiatus, the equipment needed to administer it is expected to hit the market soon. Though nitrous oxide is commonly used for labor pain relief in Canada, Great
Britain and other countries, it's been all but abandoned in the United States in favor of other options, such as epidurals. With an epidural, medication to block pain seeps through a tube into space surrounding the spinal cord. Because it must be administered by an anesthesiologist, an epidural is significantly more expensive than nitrous oxide. Both are covered by insurance. Judith Bishop a certified nurse midwife at the UC San Francisco Medical Center and a leader in the effort to reintroduce nitrous oxide for labor, said nitrous oxide is no silver bullet — it “takes the edge off” pain rather than eliminates it. But Bishop and other advocates say it should be among the options offered to

Fun ’n’ Advice
Peninsula Daily News
Raise children on faith by example
DEAR ABBY: I was raised a Christian, but now that I am older, I am questioning my faith. I consider myself an agnostic, borderline atheist. The problem is I am married and a father. I want to raise my children to be open-minded and tolerant, but I don’t know how I should go about it. How do I answer the question “Is there a God?” when I myself am not sure? Have you any advice on the subject? Agnostic Dad in South Carolina
For Better or For Worse
Dear Agnostic Dad: Many deeply spiritual people are agnostic. The way to raise open-minded, tolerant children is to talk to them about your values and model that behavior for them.

Asian noodles have long history
By Jo Marshall Relish
Chinese Chicken and Noodle Salad with Peanut Sauce.
Chinese Chicken and Noodle Salad with Peanut Sauce Serves 6 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 6 ounces Chinese egg noodles 1⁄3 cup reduced-fat creamy peanut butter 11⁄2 tablespoons red wine vinegar 11⁄2 tablespoons dry sherry 3 tablespoons soy sauce 1⁄4 cup water 11⁄2 tablespoons sugar 5 ounces romaine lettuce 1 red bell pepper,
cored and cut into thin strips 1 cup peeled, diced cucumber 6 green onions, sliced 1⁄4-inch thick
_______ Cut chicken breasts crosswise into thin slices. Heat oil in large, nonstick skillet over high heat. Add chicken and saute about 3 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Cook noodles according to package directions.
Drain in colander and let cool. Whisk together peanut butter, vinegar, sherry, soy sauce, water and sugar in a small bowl. Stack romaine lettuce leaves. Roll up into a long cylinder (like a cigar). Slice across the roll to form thin strips. Toss noodles with chicken and peanut butter mixture in a large bowl. Add bell pepper, cucumber, green onions and romaine; toss to combine well.
Chinese noodle-making is so resourceful, the operating principle seems to be, “If you can turn it into flour, it can be a noodle.” Chinese cooks recognize the noodle’s value as a cheap, portable, nonperishable foodstuff, and largescale commercial production was under way as early as 100 A.D. Because of its long shape, it gained cultural status as the icon for longevity. To this day, noodles are requisite at birthday parties.
Chinese rice noodles are the precursor of the rice sticks or noodles of Thai cuisine, and Chinese mung bean noodles gave birth to the cellophane noodles of Vietnam.
Oh, and a newsflash for college students who live on them: In a millennial survey of what Japanese people considered their most influential contribution to 20th-century life, Instant Ramen topped the Origins in China list — ahead of karaoke, headphones, video games Japanese noodles also trace their origins to China. and compact discs.

Easy Asian Beef Wraps Hoisin sauce spices it up By Jo Marshall Relish
Sweet, spicy, rich and complex, hoisin is a thick, reddish brown sauce essential to the Chinese pantry. Perhaps because of its importance as a table condiment, some people think of it as Asian catsup. But hoisin contains no tomato.
Asian Beef Wraps use hoisin sauce to enhance the flavor.
Instead, it’s one more example of what Asians have learned to do with their ever-present soybean — in this case, soybeans mashed to a paste, enhanced with sweet potato and flavored with vinegar, garlic, chile peppers and other spices. Hoisin is sometimes called Peking sauce, likely because it’s the classic accompaniment to Peking duck. Its texture and flavor profile bear a resemblance to American barbecue sauces, and in fact, it’s a key component in the preparation of Chinese-style barbecued pork. It’s an essential flavor
element in popular Chinese stir fries ranging from cashew chicken to kung pao shrimp. It’s used as a finishing sauce for mu shu pork wrapped in Mandarin pancakes. And it’s often served as one of the variety of add-ins for the Vietnamese noodle soup, pho.
Sweeten with honey Hoisin sauce generally is available in the Asian sections of mainstream groceries. Aside from using it in recipes, try sweetening hoisin with a little honey and spiking it with orange zest as a glaze for broiled salmon. Stir a bit of hoisin into vinaigrettes made with vegetable oil, rice vinegar and a dash of toasted sesame oil.
Flour tortillas Or make impromptu Asian wraps by stuffing flour tortillas with shredded rotisserie chicken, chopped green onions and shredded carrots and cabbage. Sauce with hoisin and sprinkle with chopped peanuts.
Asian Beef Wraps Serves 4 11⁄2 pounds ground beef (95 percent lean) 1⁄2 cup hoisin sauce 1⁄2 cup jarred peanut sauce 1 medium cucumber, seeded and chopped 1⁄2 cup shredded carrot 1⁄4 cup torn fresh mint 1⁄4 teaspoon salt Freshly ground black pepper 12 large Boston lettuce leaves (about 2 heads) or iceberg or romaine lettuce Fresh mint
_______ Brown ground beef in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking up into small crumbles. Pour off drippings. Stir in hoisin sauce and peanut sauce; cook until thoroughly heated. Just before serving, add cucumber, carrot and torn mint; toss gently. Season with salt and pepper. Serve beef mixture in lettuce leaves. Garnish with mint and serve with your favorite peanut sauce.
‘Takeout’ stir-fry recipe perfect for Asian cooking cravings By Alison Ladman
The Associated Press
This simple and versatile Soba Noodle Stir-Fry is for those nights when your cravings for Asian food aren’t strong enough to get you out the door. Soba noodles are made from buckwheat. In addition to having a mild flavor that works well with many ingredients, they also cook in just 3 to 4 minutes, making them a weeknight dinner dream ingredient. They can be served hot, often in broth, or cold with a dressing. Combined with a quick saute of pork, spinach and mushrooms, these noodles make a satisfying dinner. You also could substitute chicken or beef for the pork,or use tofu for a vegetarian version. Soba noodles are often found in the Asian foods section of the grocery store.
Soba Noodle Stir-Fry Makes 4 servings
9½ ounce-package dried soba noodles 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 pound boneless pork chops or cutlets, fat trimmed, cut into strips 7 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced 2 cloves garlic, minced 5 ounces baby spinach 1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced 2 tablespoons soy sauce 2 teaspoons chili paste
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil 1 tablespoon rice wine 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
_______ Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the soba noodles and cook according to package directions. Drain and set aside. In a large, deep skillet or wok over mediumhigh, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the pork and saute until cooked through and lightly
browned, 4-5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and garlic and saute until the mushrooms are tender, another 4-5 minutes. Add the spinach and scallions and cook until the spinach is wilted, 1-2 minutes. Stir in the soy sauce, chili paste, sesame oil, rice wine and the cooked soba noodles. Cook for another minute, or until the noodles are hot. Serve sprinkled with sesame seeds.

State park bids chef a farm farewell POTATO BLINI WITH lox. Braised short ribs with parsnip strips. Cod cakes with remoulade sauce. Roasted baby squash, cauliflower and peppers. “Fork-end” fans and local farmers gathered Friday at the Fort Worden State Park Commons to give chef Jay Payne an appropriate sendoff: gourmet food from local farms. The reception was held to say farewell to Payne, the former executive chef for Bon Appetit, the park’s food service provider, and welcome Dusty Cope, the new chef. Steve Shively, state park conference manager, praised Payne, calling him a rock-star chef whose passion for local food promoted the development of agri-tourism in the county and the creation of the Olympic Peninsula Culinary Loop. As a restaurant owner and executive chef at the state park, Payne was an early and ardent advocate of using local food in commercial kitchens. “Jay’s always been the most adaptable working with seasonal produce,” said Zack Wailand of Dharma Ridge Farm. “He’s always excited about what’s available, as opposed to wanting to order the same thing.” Cope, who was hired as the new executive chef after a nationwide search, is also a locovore, Shively said. His skills were showcased in the “farm fare” appetizers served at the reception, which Cope created using fish, meat and produce grown and donated by local producers. Marko Colby and Hanako Myers of Midori Farm contributed potatoes, which were turned into silver-dollar-sized potato blinis topped with strips of lox from Cape Cleare Salmon. Roger Short and Kevin Short of Short’s Family Farm in Chimacum contributed beef short ribs, which were braised, the meat cut off the bone and served in bite-sized pieces on a thin slice of vegetable with a side of shoestring parsnips from Nash’s Organic Produce in Sequim. The chef’s most unusual creation: beet and sunchoke panna
PORT TOWNSEND NEIGHBOR cotta, the small island of white Jackson custard rising from a purple sauce. In addition to the lox, Cape Cleare donated a whole king salmon, which was served with vegetables, and linecaught ling cod, which Cope made into miniature fish cakes topped with spicy remoulade. Cope and his staff also made the centerpiece of the dessert table, a round of baked brie covered with curried fruit. Other desserts — dark chocolate tarts, lemon tarts and crunchy biscotti — were provided by Annika. Sue Ohlson at Sunrise Coffee provided the coffee and Bon Appetit provided other beverages. Before moving to Port Townsend, Cope was executive chef at a four-diamond restaurant in western North Carolina, Madison’s, known for its farm-totable, sustainable cuisine, and at the Inn at Millstone. Cope’s spouse, Claire, has family in the Northwest, and the couple has made annual crosscountry visits, Cope said. Payne and his family moved to Port Townsend 11 years ago from Seattle, where he had cooked at French restaurants, the Four Seasons’ Olympic Hotel and Tulio’s. In Port Townsend, he and spouse Christine opened The Wild Coho, which was named one of the top 10 organic restaurants in the country. Bon Appetit hired Payne three years ago to be executive chef and general manager for Bon Appetit Management Co., the second largest buyer of locally produced food in the region, after the Food Co-op, Shively said. “That’s lots of beets and lots of parsnips,” Shively said. Payne is moving back to Seattle to be executive chef at the Bill
Chef Dusty Cope, right, and BAMCO/Fort Worden general manager Rochelle Prather, second from right, are introduced at the reception at Fort Worden Commons on Friday. At left is Candace Hulbert, a local deli chef/baker, and Lisa Waipio Werner, operations director at Centrum. and Melinda Gates Foundation’s new 12-acre campus across from Seattle Center. In his new job, also with Bon Appetit, Payne will be responsible for feeding the foundation’s 1,100 employees, Shively said, so he’ll still be in the market for local food. “We’ll need a pipeline,” Payne said. The reception also honored Rochelle Prather, who has been promoted to general manager of Bon Appetit at Fort Worden State Park. The job keeps her hopping: In addition to the reception Friday night, Bon Appetit served breakfast that morning for 60 people from the Olympic Educational Service District, lunch for 267 from the same group and a valentine dinner in the adjoining dining room for 70 people attending a couple’s retreat.
Prather lives in Port Ludlow. Originally from Massachusetts, she grew up in Baltimore and lived in Washington, D.C. A chief petty officer in the Navy, she served as assistant food service coordinator at the White House Mess executive dining rooms during the Reagan and George H. Bush administrations, providing gourmet meals and catering dinners for heads of state. She also was the pastry chef at Blair House, the president’s guest house. Before being hired by Bon Appetite in 2009, Prather was the regional conference and catering sales manager for Navy Region Northwest, based in Keyport. Working for Bon Appetit, with its commitment to local foods, gives her a common ground of conversation with her two sons,
who are vegans, and a relationship with the farmers, many of whom attended Friday’s reception. “It’s nice to see them in a social situation, not just unloading trucks,” Prather said. For the farmers, it was an opportunity to thank Payne for what he had done to put local farms on the map. Or, as one person called out, “Jay Rules.” “We always loved him as a person and as purchaser of organic produce,” said Colby of Midori Farm. “He was a tremendous supporter of local farms.”

Students attend fair at shipyard Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Ten Port Angeles High School trade and industries students attended the recent Puget Sound Naval Shipyard’s Career Fair at the Kitsap Sun Pavilion at the Kitsap County Fairground in Bremerton. It was an opportunity to learn about the trades, explore career options and meet managers at the shipyard and its Intermediate Maintenance Facility. Students also talked with journeymen from the different shops and learned about the student trainee program. The student trainee program is a four-year, accred-
ited, cooperative education program of the shipyard’s Apprentice School and Olympic College. Those who complete the program earn an associate degree in technical arts and a journeyman certificate in their chosen trade. “All vendors involved with the shipyard were in attendance,” said Tim Branham, the high school’s trade and industries instructor. “They had around 500 positions for hire.” Around 10,000 attend the fair each year.

PORT ANGELES — Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County recently added Dennis Beguelin, Bruce Busch and Jim Mann to its board. Each member will serve a three-year term. Beguelin has served as a volunteer for the hospice for the past two years. He worked for California’s Security Pacific National Bank before retiring to Sequim six years ago. Busch, a former Air Force flying instructor, moved to Sequim with his wife, Dottie, in 2003. He began volunteering with the hospice after the death of his wife because “they helped me.” He has served as an equipment delivery man and on board committees for the hospice. Mann describes his volunteer work with the hospice as “one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done.” With his wife, he retired to Sequim 22 years ago from Pacific Telephone as a special services technician. Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County is seeking volunteers with grant-writing experience to help keep the nonprofit sustainable.
