Is it the flu? Maybe, maybe not Clallam, Jefferson seeing higher level of respiratory syncytial virus this year By Leah Leach and Paul Gottlieb
“We’re seeing a higher level of RSV than other years,” Locke said, adding that there’s no vaccine for it. That doesn’t mean the flu isn’t going around.
Peninsula Daily News
You’re coughing and have chills and fever. Your muscles ache. You have no energy. Is it the flu? Not necessarily. It could be something called respiratory syncytial virus — or RSV — which is especially serious for young children but that can affect others. “You’re sicker than the common cold, but it isn’t influenza,” said Dr. Tom Locke, public health officer for Clallam and Jefferson counties.
Verge of flu outbreak “We’re on the verge of the outbreak mode of the flu season” on the North Olympic Peninsula, Locke said Tuesday. “Each week, it gets a little worse.” Public schools inform the county public health office when they have 10 percent or more absenteeism because of illness.
On Feb. 18, the Port Angeles School District reported 11 percent absenteeism because of illness, Locke said. Such reports are usually about two weeks before the peak of the flu season, Locke said. No other school districts on the Peninsula have called in about absenteeism, he said. Both Olympic Medical Center and Jefferson Healthcare have had two labconfirmed cases of flu, Locke said. “We re definitely seeing flu in the community,” he added. But if you got a flu shot this year, then influenza probably isn’t the source of your malaise. Each year’s flu vaccine is actually the product of experts’ best guess about which strain will cover the Earth that year. Some years, the experts
guess wrong. That isn’t the case this year.
Vaccine covers all strains “All the influenza we’re seeing in the U.S. are the strains covered by the flu vaccine,” Locke said. It takes about 10 to 14 days for the vaccine to start working, he added. It isn’t infallible, though. It covers the vast majority of people, but not all. And not all influenza-like illness is caused by influenza virus. “Any flu season, there’s always a mix of influenza and influenza-like illness,” Locke said. Locke said only about 20 percent of those with influenza-like illness actually have the flu. Turn

Water Street work closes PT’s busiest thoroughfare Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — After a weather-imposed delay, work on the Water Street repaving and sidewalk replacement has begun. Downtown’s busiest thoroughfare closed between Monroe Street and Adams Street on Monday and is scheduled to be reopened March 25. During the closure, through traffic is being routed through Quincy Street and Washington Street, with semitruck and recreational vehicle traffic detoured into the Uptown neighborhood. While the sidewalks are being replaced, a temporary path will allow pedestrian access to the Northwest Maritime Center, said Tom Miller, project manager. After Water Street is reopened, the next step will be the paving of both sides of Madison Street, scheduled for completion April 15. Also to be finished April 15 is the paving and landscaping of Pope Marine Park. Turn

Judge considering roundabout lawsuit filed against city of PT By Charlie Bermant
the lawsuit last May challenging the city for eliminating one access to the business and claiming the city made promises it did not keep about its plans. The construction of the roundabout turned Fifth Street, which previously allowed traffic to turn off Sims Way and pull up to the front of the store, into a dead end, restricting access to the store and hurting the business, the complaint said. “This case is about property rights and whether the government should be allowed to violate them,” said the Kellys’ attorney, Shane Seaman of Port Hadlock. “And if you violate someone’s property rights, you are required to compensate them.” The Kellys’ original lawsuit was filed in Jefferson County Superior Court.

PORT ANGELES — The state’s budget ax is once again falling on Peninsula College. In response to an expected loss of $1.7 million in state funding over the next two years, the college plans to eliminate 17 full-time positions, five part-time positions and its massage and fisheries associate degree programs, as well as reduce annual enrollment by 50 full-time students. The college eliminated nine positions in 2009 in the face of $1.5 million in cuts. The cuts, announced to staff members Friday, are based on Gov. Chris Gregoire’s proposed budget and may change depending on what measures the state Legislature passes. College President Tom Keegan said the purpose of the cuts, to be approved by the board of trustees, is to avoid reducing the The cuts involve the loss of two faculty quality of college offerings. “We are not going to sacrifice quality, positions — one in the massage program, and we’re not going to sacrifice academic the other in the English Department. rigor as we cut the budget,” he said The English faculty member is retiring, “However, with cuts of that magnitude, Keegan said. something has to give.

PORT TOWNSEND — The owners of a hardware store who filed a lawsuit against the city of Port Townsend saying that the Thomas Street roundabout caused a significant loss to business have filed a motion for summary judgement that would send the case to trial. Federal Judge Ronald B. Leighton’s ruling, which is expected within 45 days of the Feb. 11 filing, could instead favor the city — which has filed its own motion for summary judgement asking the judge to dismiss all claims — and end the lawsuit. Leighton may ask to hear oral arguments in the case or could decide to make his ruling based on the case file. Ken and Jane Kelly, co-owners of Vintage Hardware at 2000 W. Sims Way, filed

Katie Holmes sues Star over cover KATIE HOLMES SUED the publishers of Star Magazine on Tuesday, accusing them of libel over a magazine cover that insinuated she was a drug addict. The actress filed the lawsuit against American Media Inc. in federal court in Los Angeles. Holmes She said a January cover that featured the headline “Katie DRUG SHOCKER!” was false and not supported by the actual story in the magazine. The cover featured a disheveled picture of Holmes, and the story itself claimed she was “trapped in a cycle of addictive treatments,” based on interviews with former Scientology members. “Star Magazine’s malicious claims about Katie are untrue, unethical and unlawful,” Holmes’ attorney,
Bert Fields, wrote in a statement. “Not only do they cruelly defame Katie, they play a cheap trick on the public, making ridiculously false claims on the cover unsupported by anything inside.” The complaint also states the cover story implies that Holmes is looking to split from husband Tom Cruise, which the lawsuit states is untrue. Star Magazine is standing by its story and said in a statement that it raises significant concerns about Church of Scientology practices, including the use of e-meters, devices that practitioners believe detect mental trauma. Holmes, who starred in the television series “Dawson’s Creek” and numerous films, is seeking more than $50 million in damages.

So taken was Dylan, his 1963 album, “The Freewheelin Bob Dylan,” was fronted by the iconic photo of the artist and Ms. Rotolo walking arm in arm on a snowy Greenwich Village street. “The fact is that from early on, Suze’s left-wing politics had an impact on Dylan’s early writing,” said Rolling Stone contributing editor Anthony DeCurtis. “There’s no question that she became both an abstract muse and a very practical one. He has said that he would run songs past her.” DeCurtis thinks their relationship waned when she became overwhelmed by the worldwide fame that cascaded down on him as an icon of his era.

1936 (75 years ago) Casper Maxfield, 55, rancher in the Shuwah Prairie district between Beaver and Forks, drowned when his borrowed car plunged from the Olympic Highway into Lake Crescent. The car, a brown Ford two-door sedan, was pulled from the lake shortly before noon today with Maxfield’s body still behind the wheel. Bill Payne, a freight truck driver, saw the headlights from the sunken car shining from a depth of more than 50 feet in the lake. He rushed an alarm to

Sgt. Cornelius Trammell clears a hurdle as he demonstrates one of the elements of the Army’s new “combat readiness” test at Fort Jackson, S.C., on Tuesday.
Combat-ready fitness goal of new Army test By Susanne M. Schafer The Associated Press
FORT JACKSON, S.C. — Situps don’t make a soldier, the Army has decided. So its 30-yearold fitness requirements are getting a battlefield-inspired makeover. Soon, every soldier will have to run on a balance beam with two 30-pound canisters of ammunition, drag a sled weighted with 180 pounds of sandbags and vault over obstacles while carrying a rifle. Those were just some of the tests the Army unveiled Tuesday as it moves toward making its physical training look more like combat. Right now, soldiers have to complete sit-ups, pushups and a two-mile run twice a year within times that vary by age and gender. Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling, the general in charge of the Army’s initial military training, said he has been working to change that test for years. Hertling said the current test “does not adequately measure components of strength, endurance or mobility,” or predict how well a soldier would do under fire. A new annual “combat readi-
ness” test includes running 400 meters — about a quarter of a mile — with a rifle, moving through an obstacle course in full combat gear and crawling and vaulting over obstacles while aiming a rifle. Soldiers also will have to run on a balance beam while carrying 30-pound ammo boxes and do an agility sprint around a course field of cones. Soldiers also will have to drag sleds weighted with sandbags to test their ability to pull a fallen comrade from the battlefield. The combat test might be given before deployments as well as annually, but that has not been decided.
Some elements remain The Army will keep elements of its old assessment in a “physical readiness” test, which adds such things as a 60-yard shuttle run and a standing long jump to one minute of pushups and a 1.5mile timed run. This might be given every six months, said Frank Palkoska, head of the Army’s Fitness School at Fort Jackson. Hertling said trials of the new program are starting this month at eight bases, including Joint
Base Lewis-McChord, and the plan could be adopted Army-wide after reviews later this year. Soldiers who ran the proposed “combat readiness” portion of the test Tuesday told reporters the exercises were tough, even for combat veterans. The tests will be given to all soldiers and officers, including Army Reserves and National Guard, even those recalled soldiers who are now older than 60, officials said. Specific gender and age standards are still being worked out, Palkoska said. The shift follows other Army efforts to overhaul training, improve diets and help older soldiers keep fit. Hertling said the Army is trying to better-prepare soldiers for the 40 to 70 pounds of weapons and body armor many of them need to carry in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Army also is hoping to reduce injuries — both in the field and from repetitive exercises. The program also will be tested at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo.; Fort Benning, Ga.; Fort Sill, Okla.; Fort Bliss, Texas; Fort Bragg, N.C.; and at the Army’s military academy at West Point.
Republican governors cry foul over wilderness proposal The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Republican governors and members of Congress vowed Tuesday to fight an Obama administration plan to make millions of acres of undeveloped land in the West eligible for federal wilderness protection. The GOP officials said the plan would circumvent Congress’s authority and could be used to declare a vast swath of public land off-limits to oil-and-gas drilling. Rep. Denny Rehberg, R-Mont., said the policy threatens the economy in rural Western states and accused the Obama administration of waging a “war on the West.” Idaho Gov. Butch Otter called the plan “a drastic change in public policy for public lands that was done without public input.” He called on Congress to “take back its authority” and block the
new policy. Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, appearing with Otter at a hearing before the House Natural Resources Committee, called on the GOP-led panel to “help us right a very real and very damaging wrong.” Herbert said a December order by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar was harming rural communities throughout Utah whose economies rely on use of public lands. “This order hinders rural economic development and hurts key funding sources for Utah’s school children,” Herbert said, noting that royalties from mineral development are a primary founding sources for Utah schools. Salazar announced plans in December to reverse a Bush-era policy and make millions of acres of public land again eligible for wilderness protection. The socalled wild lands plan replaces a 2003 policy — dubbed by critics as
“No More Wilderness” — that opened Western lands to commercial development. A spokeswoman for Salazar called the new policy a commonsense solution that will help the agency better-manage public lands, waters and wildlife. “As a Westerner himself, Secretary Salazar believes that the wild lands policy is a straightforward, practical approach that restores balance to the management of public lands,” spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff said. The policy by itself does not itself create any wild lands designation, nor does it require that any particular lands be protected, said Bob Abbey, director of the Bureau of Land Management. Designation as wild land can only be made after public comments and review and does not necessarily prohibit motor vehicle use or the staking of new mining claims, Abbey said.

Space: Station gets some much-needed storage room
THE HEALTH BOARD in Webster, Mass., has approved a plan to shame owners of rundown buildings into fixing and securing their properties. The plan approved Monday allows the town to place 4-by-8-foot signs on the sides of dilapidated buildings with the owner’s names, address and telephone number. Selectman Mark Dowgiewicz said it costs up to $9,000 per year for police responses and other expenses to deal with squatters, vandals and other problems. Building owners have ignored requests from the town to secure vacant properties.

A NEW ISRAELI weapons system knocked down a Palestinian anti-tank rocket in its first combat test Tuesday, the military said. Palestinian militants said they fired a rocket-propelled grenade at an Israeli tank as it patrolled near the GazaIsrael border, a frequent occurrence. The “Trophy” system sensed the incoming rocket and fired its own projectile, blowing it up away from the tank, the military said. Tanks have relied on heavier and thicker armor plating. If the technology works consistently, it could allow the construction of smaller, lighter and more efficient tanks.
THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE Station got a sorely needed storage room Tuesday, a 21-foot-long supply closet packed with goods and a humanoid robot that will remain boxed up for another two months. The space station and space shuttle crews teamed up to attach the newest module, using a hefty robot arm to anchor it down. It became the 13th room at the sprawling outpost and the only one devoted entirely to storage. Built in Italy, the new compartment is named Leonardo, after Leonardo da Vinci.

People at high risk for complications of flu include those younger than 5 years old but especially children younger than 2 years old, those 65 years or older, pregnant women and those with underlying medical conditions, including being severely overweight. Those at high risk for complications who have flu symptoms should contact their health care pro-

People who have flu symptoms should stay away from others, cover their coughs and wash their hands frequently to avoid spreading the infection. Since flu is likely to circulate for several weeks, it
is still beneficial to get the flu vaccine if you havenâ€™t already. Clallam County Health & Human Services is not providing seasonal influenza vaccinations to adults this year.

The programâ€™s one faculty member, Jack Ganzhorn, will teach other science classes, Keegan said. Some fisheries-related classes will still be offered under other programs, but there wonâ€™t be a degree or certificate. Ganzhorn is on sabbatical, and none of the programâ€™s classes have been taught this year.
The fisheries degree has been offered at the college for decades, at least since the 1970s. Keegan said those two programs were selected because they have a â€œhigher cost,â€? in terms of the ratio of students to teachers, than others.

Man, utility at odds over cat service The Associated Press
MEDICAL LAKE â€” Aaron Lawrence finally called Inland Power after watching for four days as a cat sat atop a power pole in his neighborâ€™s yard outside Medical Lake. He told KHQ he worried the cat would touch a live wire and damage the transformer. He called Feb. 12, and a dispatcher told him heâ€™d be billed if linemen were sent out. Lawrence said he asked about options. The utility said he used offensive language and threatened to get a truck of his own. Either way, a crew was dispatched on a Saturday night. They arrived, found the pole and started up their truck. The sound apparently scared the cat off the pole; the animal vanished into the night. But thatâ€™s not the end. Lawrence was charged more than $385. He said heâ€™s thinking about whether heâ€™ll pay; KHQ said the utility is considering what it will do if he doesnâ€™t.

Washington state jobless rate drops 11,000 jobs were added in January, officials say The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — Washington state added 11,000 jobs in January as the state’s unemployment rate dropped to 9.1 percent from 9.3 percent in December, officials said Tuesday. The 11,000 nonagricultural jobs added on a season-

But Wallace said that on a weekly basis, unemployment claims have dropped 12 percent since last year and 30 percent since 2009.
Clallam Bay customers urged to boil water By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News
CLALLAM BAY — Clallam Bay water customers who had service restored Tuesday night must now boil their water, or use bottled water, until test results show the water is safe. Clallam County Public Utility District customers east of the Breakwater Inn lost water service between
about 4 a.m. and 8 p.m. Tuesday after a water main broke. PUD spokesman Michael Howe said the repair, originally expected to be completed at 5 p.m., took longer than expected because of the depth of the pipe. He did not know why the pipe broke. Howe said 130 homes and 30 commercial custom-
ers were affected. Clallam Bay residents who have had water service restored are urged to boil their water or use bottled water for cooking, drinking, making ice and brush teeth, the state Department of Health said. “The utility must disinfect and flush the waterlines and have the water tested for bacteria,” the
health advisory read. Test results will take 18 hours, at minimum, “so we’re hoping they’re back by Thursday,” Howe said. Tap water should be brought to a rolling boil for one minute to kill germs. The PUD said it also is important to conserve water. The PUD went door to door posting information
about the boil-water health advisory. The outage did not affect Sekiu or the Clallam Bay Correctional Facility. “I know the PUD called all of the customers that were on that line,” Howe said. “We did a reverse 9-1-1 deal.” A flashing electronic sign and message board at
Clallam Bay High School alerted residents of the outage. Classes were canceled because of the outage. For more information, visit www.clallampud.net or phone 360-452-9771 or 800-542-7859.

Got soldiers to safety
When enemy fighters swarmed his unit, Tim called for air support and helped his brothers in arms fight to safety. At one point, he was dragging a soldier who had been fatally shot, refusing to leave him behind. Between Nov. 13, 2008, to when he died Feb. 20, 2009, he participated in more than 80 combat operations and processed more than 300 joint tactical air requests for assistance “with 100 percent effectiveness,” according to a statement from the Air Force. He received a second Bronze Star for his efforts. He died when a vehicle he
The plan is to go to Afghanistan in May 2012, if not earlier. She will keep a bag packed and be ready to be called on 24 hours’ notice. She will also have to keep her training current every 90 days. Her stay in Afghanistan would be for four to six months. She’s a second lieutenant now, and by May, she’ll be a first lieutenant with an eye toward captain in two years. She said she’s young enough that she very well may want to stay in the Reserve for the next 20 years and work her way up to colo-
nel. Her husband of six years, Warren Carroll, says he is understanding and very supportive. Together, they have a home in Des Moines. “I don’t want other people to have to go through what we went through,” Noel said. “If I can go over there to prevent a small part of that happening to another family, I think it would make me feel better,” she said. Her mom and dad are both obviously nervous about Noel’s involvement with the Air Force, given what happened to Tim. But both are very proud and offer nothing but encouraging words. “It’s going to be hard on us when your child is in danger, but what she wants to do is very honorable, to serve her country,” Sheldon said. “There’s a lot of mixed emotions with me,” Noel’s father said. “It’s a rare individual that can go through everything she’s gone through and to come out on top of it “She’s going right into the mouth of a lion where I lost a child. “And knowing that’s the place your child flew out of and she’s going to be going into that same air base, it’s more meaningful.”
Fuel cleanup done FORKS — Cleanup of a large diesel fuel spill on Hoh tribal land finished Tuesday, but a nearby wetland will be monitored for another week. The last of contaminated soil has been removed, and the wetland appears to be clean, said state Department of Ecology spokeswoman Kim Schmanke. Cowlitz Clean Sweep, hired by Pettit Oil, will continue to monitor the wetland, about 25 miles south of Forks, for contamination, she said. Both lanes of U.S. Highway 101, where the spill occurred, are open, Schmanke said. Up to 4,600 gallons of fuel spilled from the trailer of a Pettit Oil truck when it drove into a ditch last Wednesday. Peninsula Daily News

ABERDEEN — After climbing a mountain with 50 pounds of gear on her back, eating bugs and skinning a rabbit, Noel DavisCarroll said she couldn’t help but think of her brother, a survivalist with the Air Force. It was two years ago that Montesano native Tim Davis, a special forces airman with the 23rd Tim Davis Special Tactics Squadron in Florida, died following a combat mission in Afghanistan. His sister, Noel, a graduate of Aberdeen High School, has spent the past year training as a member of the Air Force Reserve so that she can follow his footsteps back to the Middle East. All during training, Noel said Tim was on her mind. “I feel like he’s with me a lot,” she said, standing over his grave at Wynooche Cemetery near Montesano a few days before the anniversary of his death. “When it was really hard, I felt he was there with me. And it gave me strength thinking of him.” Noel will be a flight nurse, healing wounded soldiers in transit on C-17s. She had always felt a calling to heal people and has worked as a nurse in the emergency room at Highline Medical Center in Burien since 2007. But when Tim died Feb. 20, 2009, Noel said, she felt an instant desire to sign up with the Air Force Reserve and continue his legacy. “It’s been something I was thinking about, but when he died, it was something I knew I needed to do,” she said. Tim was a combat controller for the Air Force. He often accompanied
teams of Green Berets and served as the liaison between ground forces and the air support they often relied upon. That put him headfirst into some intense combat situations. He was awarded a Purple Heart when he was wounded by shrapnel from an insurgent’s bomb. As soon as he recovered from the wound, he went right back to Afghanistan. Soon after, his entire unit was awarded a Bronze Star when his team was searching for an insurgent in a Taliban village.
FORKS — High winds are forecast today on the West End. The National Weather Service posted a high wind warning Tuesday, an upgrade from Monday’s posting of a high wind watch. The warning is for Forks and Neah Bay, as well as Westport, Hoquiam and Ocean Shores. It will be in effect until 10 p.m. today. Forecasters said a strong front and deep lowpressure system will bring “strong and potentially damaging winds to the Washington coast” today. Sustained winds of 25 to 40 mph, with gusts of up to 60 mph, are possible, they said. Storm-force winds are forecast for the waters off the Olympic Peninsula coast.
The strongest winds were expected to begin to hit late this morning.

Adult homes get attention in Legislature By Manuel Valdes The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — The state Senate approved several bills Tuesday night that stemmed from investigative projects by local journalism organizations. The bills now move to the state House for consideration there. Bills must pass both the House and Senate before they can be signed into law by Gov. Chris Gregoire. Senators approved unanimously a bill that further defines financial exploitation
of senior citizens, a measure that prime sponsor state Sen. Karen Keiser, D-Kent, said was a small piece of a proposed overhaul to longterm care of elderly adults. She said the total package of bills moving through the Legislature was prompted by a Seattle Times investigation that found that adult-home deaths from neglect occur at strikingly higher rates than comparable deaths at nursing homes. She added that lawmakers are taking a closer look at the system and the state’s
role in it. Senators also unanimously approved a bill that would order the Department of Labor & Industries to create standards on how to handle chemotherapy drugs. This past year, the independent nonprofit journalism outlet InvestigateWest reported that nurses who handled such drugs are exposed to health problems. Also Tuesday, senators approved with little opposition a bill that would make a company responsible for an oil spill liable for the conse-
quences of the cleanup. That measure differed from a version passed in the House, which included extra contingency planning requirements for tank vessels and would require Ecology to request that the federal government contribute to Washington’s caches of relief equipment to ensure the best possible response. The House bill met opposition from the oil industry. Both bills are being brought to the Legislature due to the massive BP oil spill in the Gulf.

Peninsula Daily News for Wednesday, March 2, 2011
What to do after reaching the top? RECENTLY, SOMEONE ASKED me how on earth I could kill a wild steelhead. This was in response to a Pat photo of a 27-pound buck Neal steelhead in my column last week (“A Challenging Ride Yields Bounty”). The fish was caught by Rick Perry of Sequim while floating the Sol Duc River last Groundhog Day. We were fishing plugs with 20-pound test line, which some folks might claim is a little heavy, but I ain’t one of them. Once a steelhead is hooked, they can try to snag the line on every rock and stick in the river like they have them all memorized.
It’s sick to watch a big, bright steelhead enter a sunken rain forest to tangle the line in the limbs. Your only chance is to give the fish slack line and hope the fish leaves the brush-pile on its own without tangling. This is often futile. You watch the fish roll away down the surface of the middle of the river as your entire spool of line is shredded until it breaks. When Rick’s fish jumped, I wished we had stainless steel cable for line. Just lucky we were in a big, deep hole in the river with only one downed tree soaking in it. I crashed the boat into the tree to make enough noise to scare the fish back out into the river. It’s an old guide trick, (or excuse) that actually worked for once. When we finally got that fish in the net, Rick could not believe
his luck. He’d quit fishing 30 years ago in South Carolina when he reeled in a water moccasin. Since retiring to the North Olympic Peninsula, he started fishing again. Then he caught a fish that anglers lie awake nights dreaming about. It was the fish of a lifetime — heck, 20 lifetimes — but who’s counting? Rick could not believe his luck. “I’ll never catch a steelhead bigger than that,” Rick said. “Not fishing with me you won’t,” I told him. His career as a steelhead fisherman was over. A friend once explained how he wished he never caught a steelhead that big, say a 30-pounder, because he would have, “nothing left to live for.” This is my story. Since catching my first steelhead in 1968, I have caught several over 30
Peninsula Voices Boldt defended The “Boldt’s impact” letter (Feb. 25-26 PDN) and others recently blame the lack of salmon in the Elwha and Dungeness on the Boldt decision (1974), in other words treaty Indian gillnet fishing. This “blame game” ignores some realities and science. Indians fished the Elwha long before the dams’ construction. From what we know, salmon were abundant until then. The dams blocked 70-plus miles of salmon habitat, leaving only five miles below Elwha Dam. Thinking this would have no impact on salmon seems ludicrous to me. The first impacts wouldn’t have been noticed for perhaps four to five years. Impacts may not have been noted for sometime after that because fishermen moved to streams not yet showing human degradation (e.g. logging practices). Sport fishing wasn’t really popular on the North Olympic Peninsula until after World War II, somewhat limiting casual observation of salmon abundance for years after dam construction. Viewing large numbers of salmon in the Dungeness (no dams) two years before the Boldt decision might result from a good hatchery return, location and timing of viewing. Blaming reduced salmon runs on only Indian fishing ignores non-Indian impacts in the Dungeness watershed (e.g. logging, mining, roads, population increase, stormwater runoff, water withdrawal, water pollution, etc.)
I would like to give a major bravo to the lone police officer juggling the disastrous traffic fiasco at the Port Angeles Walmart (Kolonels Way) intersection during the tragic accident on the Morse Creek grade Wednesday afternoon (Feb. 23). He was an “army of one” as he carried out his daunting task like a wellorchestrated dance routine. He remained pleasant under the most trying conditions, kept all lanes of traffic under control to the best of his ability and was most helpful under a flood of questions (even politely apologizing to drivers for the lengthy delays). In addition to his other feats, he successfully (and single-handedly) shoved a car into forward motion that lost traction at the stoplight, which would have caused worse congestion had it remained stranded. It really was impressive to watch him maintain order in the middle of that snarled, slushy mess. This officer (who appeared completely soaked) was courageous beyond words working in unimaginable weather

IT SHOULD BE so easy: Buy toothpaste But few shopping trips are more bewildering. An explosion of specialized pastes and gels brag about their powers to whiten teeth, reduce plaque, curb sensitivity and fight gingivitis, sometimes all at the same time. Add in all the flavors and sizes, plus ever-rising prices, and the simple errand turns into sensory overload. Manufacturers acknowledge the problem and are putting the brakes on new product introductions. Last year, 69 new toothpastes hit store shelves, down from 102 in 2007, according to market-research firm Mintel International Group. The Wall Street Journal

threats are the sincerest form of flattery. I told Rick to turn the steelhead loose. It had an intact adipose fin of a native. The regulations said we had to release native fish. Then we noticed the fish had a clipped ventral fin, indicating it came from the Snider Creek Hatchery. Rick kept the fish. These days, he calls me to ask about the fishing once in a while, but he knows there’s no point. The Groundhog Day steelhead saw his shadow, and winter is far from over. ________
The population grew by 52.4 percent in Sequim between 2000 and 2010 (“Peninsula Population On The Rise,” Feb. 25-26 PDN).

pounds. Imagine a life with no hope or dreams of the future. You can fish, but it won’t do you any good. You’ll never catch a bigger one. It didn’t matter that I turned the biggest fish loose back in the river for brood stock. My fishing career was over. I haven’t caught another 30-pound steelhead since sometime in the 1990s. Since then, I have tried to help others learn from my mistakes. Rick’s fish looked close to 30 pounds. Steelheading isn’t like other sports. For example if you shoot a hole-in-one in golf, other golfers will want to congratulate you. If you catch the biggest steelhead, that’s one less fish for the rest of us. Other fishermen want to kill you. Out on the river, death

Roll back spending The federal government’s fiscal irresponsibility has us on a collision course with financial disaster. Having successfully surpassed Portugal, measured by national debt/gross domestic product, we are now speedily approaching Greece and Italy. There is not much time left to change course before our economy and the dollar go over the brink. Yet, the solution is not rocket science. We all know that if we can’t afford everything we want, we must make do with less or risk personal or business financial disaster. It is time for the federal government to learn the same lesson. Projected 2012 revenue is $2.63 trillion. If we roll back expenditures to 2008 levels, or $2.90 trillion, the 2012 deficit is reduced from $1.1 trillion to $270 billion. The beneficiaries of the spending increases since 2008 would complain, but overall, the level of services the federal government provided in 2008 was quite adequate, if not ample. To close the remaining $270 billion gap, one could start by eliminating the
federal Departments of Energy and Education, which cost $90 billion annually. The country ran quite well for more than 200 years since the Declaration of Independence before President Carter created these departments. An across-the-board 10 percent cut in all remaining expenditure items, except defense, veterans affairs and servicing the national debt, would amount to $189 billion, more than necessary to balance the budget. In reality, some budget items could be protected, with deeper cuts in others. This solution would be painful for many, but the alternative is infinitely worse. Kaj Ahlburg, Port Angeles
GOP economics Republican “free market” economics is ominously reminiscent of the economics theories of 19thcentury England, where the theory of “let it alone” holds that the welfare of all can be achieved only by the free operation of economic laws; that the government must maintain a policy of strict noninterference and leave each person to pursue his or her own private interests. For the laboring classes, the results were catastrophic, with inadequate wages, long hours of work under appalling conditions that exploited the weak and destroyed body and soul. Workers were prevented from unionizing by law. Most suffering was largely confined to the poor and working classes, while the landed classes, the

The Feb. 22 columns referred to by the writer [“Cairo Moves To Madison, Indeed” by Paul Krugman, and “Up With NASCAR, Down With Big Bird” by Gail Collins] were indeed a bit biased.

What do right-to-lifers and the Tea Party have in common other than the Republican Party? It is as if the Republicans have interpreted their Christian duty as those most responsible for meting out punishment for original sin by making sure children and their caretakers have no jobs or supportsystems in place. If one believes people should be fruitful and multiply by blocking birth control and abortion, then they should be responsible for the welfare of the children after they are born. It is time for the religious right and their greedridden Republican cohorts to put up or shut up. The IRS should have a line on tax returns whereby those deciding they are against birth control and abortion should be levied an additional tax. Let’s see how many check that line on their tax returns. Cheryl Nash, Port Angeles

Boy & Girls’ Sequim unit gets big cut By Jeff Chew
Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — The Sequim unit of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula will feel the pain of a steep loss of city funding for the club’s teen program, a club leader said Tuesday. The City Council, after long debate during several meetings since late last year, approved $12,500 for the club’s teen program Monday night. The amount is a dramatic reduction. Jerry Sinn, the Boys & Girls Clubs’ board president, said the council’s decision was unexpected in light of the fact that the city allocated the club $60,000 in each of the past two years and $100,000 in 2008. “It means we lost from the city about 40 [percent] to 50 percent of our funding for the teen evening program,” Sinn said. “We need to make that up.” He estimated it takes about $90,000 to $100,000 a year to run the teen evening program, which helps at-risk teens stay in school and even find higher education and workplace training.

The council’s final vote of approval came after City Councilman Bill Huizinga attempted to get the clubs $39,000. His motion failed for lack of a second. In voting for the recommended allocations, City Councilman Ted Miller said, “We need to encourage corporations to donate, not the council.” He recommended that funding be limited to the senior activity center, the Dungeness Valley clinic and the Boys & Girls Clubs, with the latter receiving the majority of the funding. His motion failed.

afternoon. He does not carry cash. “That means to me he never made it to a store,” Hudson said. Hudson believes her brother is somewhere in the greater Port Angeles-Sequim area because she had about 50 miles’ worth of gas in the Jeep. She speculated that Goss was headed to the Sequim area because the family often travels in that direction. Hudson said Goss has never taken her keys or left the house in the middle of the night. “I know he got a sandwich out at about 2 o’clock,” Hudson said. “That’s the last I heard from him. But the next morning at 9 o’clock, the car was gone.” Hudson said Goss has weak joints and would not be able to get up if he fell. She said her brother is lucid around his family but may be confused around strangers. Goss sold his home in the Sacramento, Calif., area 21⁄2 years ago to live with his sister. “He has a nice life here,” Hudson said. Anyone with information on Goss’ whereabouts is asked to phone the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office at 360-417-2459, Detective Stacy Sampson at 360-4172576 or Detective Sgt.

PORT ANGELES — The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office has issued a missing/ endangered person alert for a 78-year-old Clallam County man who left his sister’s house early Monday morning and hasn’t been seen since.

NFL lockout a day away By Howard Fendrich The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — With time running out on the NFL’s labor contract, one team owner — the New York Giants’ John Mara — joined mediated negotiations between the league and players Tuesday, and the union won a key court ruling about TV contract money. The sides met for six hours Tuesday. NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith and his group left shortly before 8 p.m. — 52 hours before the current collective bargaining agreement expires. Mara, the first owner to attend the federal mediation; Atlanta Falcons president Rich McKay, chairman of the league’s competition committee; and Washington Redskins general manager Bruce Allen were among those accompanying NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for the eighth day of bargaining overseen by George Cohen. He is the director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, a U.S. government agency. “I don’t think you could have a greater sense of urgency,” Jeff Pash, the league’s lead labor negotiator, said on his way into the meeting. “We all know what the calendar is, and we all know what’s at stake for everybody. “And that’s why we’re here. We’re going to be here as long as it takes and work as hard as we can work to get something done.” “What’s the word we’re using right now? ‘Cautiously optimistic,’” Seattle Seahawks guard Chester Pitts said after attending the first 3½ hours of Tuesday’s negotiations. “We’re making a point to go into it doing all we can to do things the right way, and hopefully we get a deal done.” Asked about Mara’s presence, Pitts said: “He’s a businessman, and businessmen like to make money. “So sometimes you’ve got to come, make sure you’re hovering around, make sure everything’s being done to get a deal done. And I’m pretty sure he’ll say he had that sense.” Afterward, in keeping with Cohen’s order to stay silent on the mediation, neither the NFL nor the union would discuss whether they fared any better Tuesday than they did during more than 40 hours of meetings spread across seven previous days of mediation. When that round ended Tuesday, Cohen said the parties still had “very strong differences” on the “allimportant core issues.” Mediation will resume today, when union president Kevin Mawae is expected to be in Washington. He has yet to sit in on this round of talks. Turn
RENTON — Leon Washington is getting rewarded for proving he could come back from a gruesome, career-threatening broken leg. The Seattle Seahawks and Washington have agreed to a new four-year contract after a 2010 season during which Washington was in the discussions for comeback player of the year. Washington’s agent, Alvin Keels, announced on Twitter Tuesday morning that an agreement had been reached in principle between Washington and the team. The Seahawks confirmed later Tuesday afternoon that the deal had been finalized. Washington came to Seattle in a draft-day trade with the New York Jets, but with plenty of questions whether he could return to the Pro Bowl form he showed in New York. Washington sustained a compound fracture of the tibia and fibula in his right leg during a Jets game at Oakland in October 2009. It didn’t take long for Washington to prove he was back. If his sprinting touchdown run during the preseason didn’t show Washington still had his burst, his welcome back came in Week 3 against San Diego. In Seattle’s 27-20 win over the Chargers, Washington returned two kickoffs for touchdowns, including a 101-yard sprint to start the second half. He finished that day with The Associated Press 253 yards on kickoff returns, nearly matching Seattle’s offen- Seattle running back Leon Washington carries against the Arizona Cardinals in sive output of 271 yards.

Third-round tender on Mebane Hawks, player try for long-term deal The Associated Press
“I don’t think we’ll ramp them up, but everyone would like to have something solid going into an uncertain period. But we’ve agreed to work toward a common goal.”
RENTON — The Seattle Seahawks have placed an original round tender on restricted free agent Brandon Mebane, according to his agent. Chuck Price said Tuesday the Seahawks placed the tag on their starting defensive tackle, but that both sides are working diligently toward getting a long-term deal done to keep Mebane with the Seahawks even as they bump against the possible expiration of the current collective bargaining agreement later this week. “I don’t think we’ll ramp them up, but everyone would like to have something solid going into an uncertain period,” Price said. “But we’ve agreed to work toward a com-
mon goal.” Mebane has been a starter with the Seahawks almost from the time he was drafted in the third round out of California in 2006. The team did not respond to messages about the designation being placed on Mebane. As a restricted free agent, Seattle would receive a third-round pick if Mebane signed elsewhere. That doesn’t sound like it’ll happen. While there remain major unknowns about what a new collective bargaining agreement might look like, Price said his client is willing to pass up the idea of free

agency for the chance at long-term security with the Seahawks. “For Brandon, it’s ‘if my market value is X and I can get it in Seattle, great,’” Price said. Mebane has started 53 of 59 career regular season games for the Seahawks, missing four games this past season with a calf injury. Mebane had a career-high 40 tackles in 2009 and 5½ sacks in 2008, but was asked to clog run lanes more than get to the quarterback last year. Mebane made $1.1 million in base salary last season as part of the original four-year deal he signed coming out of California. Price said the uncertainty around the CBA has made negotiating difficult but more from the team standpoint than the individual. “There are a lot of things they are uncertain of,” Price said. “It’s hard to negotiate long term when you don’t know what the CBA will state.”
Bradley sparks M’s over Rangers Outfielder a perfect 3 for 3, looking strong The Associated Press
PEORIA, Ariz. — Milton Bradley says he’s not bothered by having to compete for a starting job. A couple more days like Tuesday and it won’t be much of a contest. Bradley drove in a pair of runs and went 3 for 3 with two singles and a double, leading the Seattle Mariners to a 5-2 win over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday. “He’s really working hard, he just needs to stay patient and let the game come to him,” Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. “I think he’s having a good time. He’s enjoying himself, he’s

Thunder sign Perkins to deal The Associated Press
OKLAHOMA CITY — Before even playing a game with the Oklahoma City Thunder, center Kendrick Perkins signed an extension Tuesday to stay with his new team for a while. Perkins joined the Thunder five days ago in a trade with Boston, where he spent the first seven years of his career and won the 2008 NBA title. Now, he’s due to make about $36 million while staying in Oklahoma City through the 2014-15 season. “It kind of felt like the worst day of my life when I got traded from the Cs, from being there so long. But when I got here, it kind of took my mind away from everything, I think, and
everything just kind of blew me away,” Perkins said after practice Tuesday. “It was kind of the worst but best day.” Perkins said he was attracted to stay in Oklahoma City because of similarities he sees to his Texas hometown and by his first impressions of the Thunder as a “first-class” organization. He would have become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, but said he didn’t “want to take anything for granted.” “I’m a country boy. I’m from Beaumont, Texas. I don’t think it’s really hard to please me,” Perkins said. “I didn’t really have just a crazy number in mind. We met, we came to an agreement, that’s the most impor-
tant thing.” Perkins was acquired along with Nate Robinson in exchange for Jeff Green, Nenad Krstic and a future first-round pick in a deal completed at the league’s trade deadline Thursday. He played in 12 games for Boston after returning from a knee injury he sustained in Game 6 of the NBA finals, but is expected to miss as much as three weeks with a left knee sprain The trade, along with a deal that sent veteran Morris Peterson and D.J. White to Charlotte for Nazr Mohammed, cleared about $2.5 million in cap space for the Thunder this season and Oklahoma City decided to use it to sweeten its offer to Perkins.
“The trades left us with some flexibility underneath the salary cap that we looked at and felt like it would be something that we should explore and bring to Kendrick and his representation,” general manager Sam Presti said. “We were fortunate that that opportunity presented itself.” The 6-foot-10 Perkins was the 27th overall pick in the 2003 draft and has averaged 6.4 points and 6.1 rebounds over the course of his career. When the Lakers played at Oklahoma City on Sunday, Kobe Bryant, who faced the Celtics in the finals two of the past three years, called Perkins the “best lowpost defender we have in the game.”
NFL: CBA runs out Thursday Continued from B1 The CBA runs out at midnight as Thursday becomes Friday on the East Coast, and the owners could lock out the players afterward. The union could also decertify — essentially, declare itself out of the business of representing players. The players would then give up their rights under labor law and take their chances in court under antitrust law. Whatever happens this week could cause the country’s most popular sport to lose regular-season games to a work stoppage for the first time since 1987. Or, perhaps, everything could be resolved by management and labor in an industry with revenues topping $9 billion annually. Buffalo Bills safety George Wilson — who’s not involved in the negotiations but is getting updates from the union as his team’s NFLPA representative — doesn’t expect a new deal by the deadline. “Everything I’m telling my guys is: Prepare this Friday for the start of a lockout,” Wilson said. “I certainly don’t believe a deal will be reached by Thursday midnight. That’s what I feel in my heart.
“I have not received any indication [from the union] that we’re close to a deal.” In a ruling Tuesday that could have a significant bearing on the talks, U.S. District Court judge David Doty in Minneapolis sided with the union by overruling a special master’s Feb. 1 decision to reject the NFLPA’s request that $4 billion in 2011 payments from networks to the league be placed in escrow if there is a lockout. Doty, who has jurisdiction over NFL labor matters, said there will be a hearing to determine what should happen to that money. The date of the hearing wasn’t announced immediately. The NFL played down the importance of Doty’s decision. The union issued a statement, calling it “irrefutable evidence that owners had a premeditated plan to lock out players and fans for more than two years.” As he left Tuesday’s mediation, Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday called Doty’s ruling a “really good reversal.” “I’m sure we’ll hear more tonight,” Saturday, a member of the NFLPA executive committee, told The Associated Press.
“But it sounds very favorable.” The union accused the NFL of structuring TV contracts agreed to in 2009 and 2010 so owners would be guaranteed money even if there were a work stoppage in 2011 — while not getting the most revenue possible in other seasons, when income would need to be shared with players. The union argued this violated an agreement between the sides that says the NFL must make goodfaith efforts to maximize revenue for players. The NFLPA also said any work stoppage clauses in TV deals guaranteed “war chest” income for the NFL, giving it an unfair advantage in labor talks. The biggest sticking point all along has been how to divide the league’s revenues, including what cut team owners should get up front to help cover certain costs, such as stadium construction. Under the old deal, owners got $1 billion off the top. They entered these negotiations seeking to double that. Among the other significant topics: a rookie wage scale; the owners’ push to expand the regular season from 16 games to 18 while reducing the preseason by two games; and benefits for
retired players. The 32 teams’ owners are scheduled to meet today and Thursday at a hotel in Chantilly, Va., for updates on the status of negotiations. And then they will need to determine their next step. In many respects, this boils down to money, of course. And there is plenty of money at risk the longer it takes for the league and NFLPA to work together again. The league estimates there would be a cut in gross revenues of $350 million if there’s no new CBA by August, before the preseason starts, and a loss of revenues totaling $1 billion if no new contract is in place until September. And if regular-season games are lost in 2011, the NFL figures that revenue losses would amount to about $400 million per week. “Both parties are at it, full steam ahead, doing all we can to come to an agreement,” Pitts said. “It’s two groups doing business. The tone? None of that matters. It’s business, and that’s the approach, and that’s the expectation. Doing all we can to get a deal done.”

SAN FRANCISCO — Barry Bonds’ former personal trainer is facing prison and a judge admitted a trove of evidence while the admissibility of still more hangs in the balance after a pivotal hearing in federal court Tuesday, three weeks before the slugger’s trial is scheduled to start. Bonds also renewed his not guilty plea, which was made necessary when prosecutors revised the charges for the third time since the initial indictment was unsealed in November 2007. Bonds is charged with four counts of making false statements to a grand jury and one count of obstruction of justice. There was little doubt what Bonds’ plea was going to be Tuesday and that the case was going to trial March 21 after Bonds’ legal team and prosecutors last month told U.S. District Judge Susan Illston that there was little chance of a plea agreement. Likewise, there was no doubt that Bonds’ former personal trainer, Greg Anderson, would tell the judge Tuesday that he has no intention of taking the stand as a government witness during the trial. Anderson made a similar pledge in 2009 before Bonds’ trial was put on hold until a government appeal was resolved in Bonds’ favor. Anderson has previously spent more than a year in prison on contempt charges after refusing to testify before the grand jury investigating Bonds. The judge said that prosecutors and Bonds’ legal team both want Anderson to testify. She said his testimony would spare his former clients, including several retired major league players, from being called to the
witness stand to discuss how he supplied them with steroids. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeff Ned row said he wants to use that evidence to support their position that Bonds was lying when he claimed “he was unwittingly duped by Mr. Anderson” into believing he was taking legal supplements. “Much of that testimony would be unnecessary” if he testified, Illston told Anderson. Illston then told Anderson that she planned to find him in contempt of court and will order him jailed during the duration of the trial, which is expected to last at least two weeks. Anderson simply nodded his head when the judge asked if he intended to follow through on his vow of silence. “He’s taking not testifying to the nth degree,” said Mark Geragos, Anderson’s attorney. Illston ordered Anderson to return to court March 22, when she plans to order him jailed. After Anderson left the courtroom, the lawyers got down to highly technical arguments over what evidence will be presented to the jury. The judge ruled that the jury may hear, among other pieces of evidence: ■ That prosecutors granted Bonds immunity from prosecution as long he testified truthfully about his drug use before the grand jury. ■ Bonds’ former personal shopper, Cathy Hoskins, testifying about Bonds’ relationship with a Playboy model. ■ Bonds’ personal surgeon, Dr. Arthur Ting, and former girlfriend Kim Bell testifying that Bonds mistreated them, including Bell allegedly witnessing violent outbursts.

Nevada prostitution ban? Reid says yes; politicians mum; brothel backers say nay By Jennifer Medina The New York Times
CARSON CITY, Nev. — Brooke Taylor voted for Harry Reid in his battle for re-election to the U.S. Senate last fall. But now, she is incensed. Reid recently visited here from Washington, D.C., and took a firm, if unexpected, stand: He called for an end to legal brothels. For five years Taylor has worked at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, the Nevada brothel featured on the HBO show “Cathouse,” a few miles outside Carson City, the state capital. She has fashioned herself as the public face for legal prostitution throughout the state, a role she has embraced in adult magazines, on cable television and even on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” Now Reid’s comments are reopening the oldest debate about the oldest profession. And Taylor is rallying her army of fans and clients to fight back. Prostitution never emerged as an issue during the Reid campaign. But then Reid, a Democrat and the Senate majority leader, returned to his home state last week for his annual address to the state Legislature.
‘The time has come’ “When the nation thinks about Nevada, it should think about the world’s newest ideas and newest careers, not about its oldest profession,” Reid said. “If we want to attract business to Nevada that puts people back to work, the time has come to outlaw prostitution.” Consumed by the need to close a $1.5 billion budget gap, Gov. Brian Sandoval, a Republican, and the leaders
The Associated Press
“We’re entrepreneurs,” said Brooke Taylor, in her room at the Bunny Ranch outside Carson City, Nev. in the Democrat-controlled state Legislature issued terse statements suggesting that they would leave the issues of brothels up to local leaders. But that is hardly stopping the chatter. It is unclear what motivated Reid at this moment. When a reporter asked him why now, he answered, “If not now, when?” But some are arguing that now is precisely the time to embrace legal prostitution even more tightly. As the state has faced austere budgets, the brothels have indicated a willingness to pay more taxes — which would produce more revenue and simultaneously give the brothels more legitimacy if the state came to rely on the money. Some supporters of brothels, like Taylor, say they hope the debate will give them a chance to push to make prostitution legal in large counties in the state, where it is now banned but widely acknowledged to exist. “We’re entrepreneurs; we’re in a business for ourselves,” she added. When George Flint, who has worked as the chief lob-
byist for the Nevada Brothel Owners Association for 25 years, heard that Reid had condemned the brothels, he encouraged Dennis Hof, the outlandish owner of the Bunny Ranch and other brothels, to take some of his “girls” to the Legislature for the speech. Later, Hof said “Harry Reid will have to pry the cathouse keys from my cold, dead hands.” Flint, who is also the proprietor of a wedding chapel in Reno, said politicians here “have always been pretty happy to ignore” the brothels. “Anyone who shows a lot of support for us is going to have some trouble,” he said.
1,000 legal prostitutes Many of the brothels here have existed for decades. Reid wrote in his autobiography about his mother earning money by doing laundry for some in his hometown, Searchlight. Officials estimate that roughly 1,000 women legally work as prostitutes in the state, though only about a third of them are working on any given day.
The women generally set their own rates and share their pay with the brothel owners. Under state law, brothels are illegal in counties with a population above 400,000, which includes Clark County, home to Las Vegas. But in many ways prostitution is most apparent there, where aggressive marketers constantly pass out handbills with nude women advertised as escorts. If prostitution were legal in Las Vegas, Flint said, the county could collect millions of dollars in taxes. Mayor Oscar Goodman of Las Vegas, who is known for relishing the “Sin City” image, has said he may support a red-light district for legal prostitution. His wife, who is running to succeed him, said during a debate last week that she was also open to the possibility. Ed Goedhart, a Republican assemblyman from northern Nevada, said brothels speak to the state’s history of “rugged individualism.” “It shows we’re not just another cookie-cutter state,” he said.
Car sales jump; so do gas prices Peninsula Daily News news services
DETROIT — Sales of new vehicles in the United States increased 27 percent in February, automakers said Tuesday, even as violence in the Middle East and a surge in gasoline prices threatened to slow the industry’s postrecession recovery. The automakers said they were seeing some signs that fuel economy was becoming a higher priority for consumers again but that gas prices were not affecting car shoppers as much as three years ago, when drivers were scrambling to get out of big trucks and sport utility vehicles. Sales rose 37 percent for pickups and 34 percent for SUVs from February 2010, while demand for small cars rose 24 percent, according to the Autodata Corp.
General Motors led all automakers with a 46 percent increase, as sales of its full-size pickup trucks jumped 66 percent and its Buick and Cadillac brands each reported gains of at least 70 percent. Chrysler sold 82 percent more pickups, though its total sales were up just 13 percent. Toyota said sales rose 42 percent last month, when traffic at its dealerships was hurt by two big recalls. Nissan, Hyundai and Kia each set February records. Ford Motor Co., which benefited from Toyota’s troubles last February, said sales were up 10 percent; excluding Volvo, which Ford no longer owns, its sales were up 14 percent. Its midsize car, the Fusion, outsold the Honda Accord, a perennial leader in that hotly contested seg-
ment. Ford said it planned to increase vehicle production by 9 percent in the second quarter, despite widespread projections that gasoline prices could hit $4 this summer. Nationwide, gas is averaging $3.375 a gallon after rising 20 cents in the last week and 27 cents from a month ago, according to the AAA motor club. LeaseTrader.com, which helps people who want to get out of auto leases, said its analysis of the price runup in 2008 suggested $4 was the psychological barrier that could cause consumers to change their buying behavior. But the automakers said they were confident sales would continue to rise, in part because many people put off buying a new vehicle during the recession and would need one soon.
“If gas prices rise slowly, as we expect them to, we don’t expect to see a big impact, but if there is a dramatic spike, that could obviously have a big impact on industry volumes,” Don Johnson, GM’s vice president of United States sales operations, said in a conference call with analysts and reporters. “The last one, we had a lot of people that overreacted and went into vehicles that didn’t meet their needs.” Since then, GM, Ford and other automakers have vastly improved their lineups of small cars as well as the profit margins that those segments generate. Smaller cars are still less profitable than trucks and SUVs, but in the past, the Detroit companies often sold those models at a loss simply to keep factories running.

Judge holds off DSHS benefit cuts SEATTLE — A U.S. District Court judge has put a temporary hold on a state rule change that would have cut government dollars going to disabled children and their families. The rule change by the state Department of Social and Health Services would have forced poor families to count federal disability payments when determining their income. The rule was scheduled to go into effect Tuesday. The change could have forced thousands of families to lose benefits from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families and the State Family Assistance programs. U.S. District Judge James Robart said in his ruling issued Monday that when faced with a conflict between dollars and human suffering, the balance tips in favor of preventing human suffering. A hearing on the temporary injunction will be held March 21.
BofA outages NEW YORK — Customers of Bank of America Corp. were again having problems accessing their accounts online Tuesday. It was the second outage for the bank in less than two months. The latest problems, which began Monday and hadn’t been resolved by early Tuesday evening, were the result of system upgrades over the weekend, said Tara Burke, a company spokeswoman. The site was slow to load in some cases, and other customers were unable to log on.
Commercial fish ANCHORAGE — A survey for possible oil and gas drilling off Alaska’s northern coast have found commercial fish such as Pacific cod and walleye pollock in Arctic waters where they have not been previously documented. The study, recently compiled into a final report, of the Chukchi and Beaufort seas has generated research of value beyond oil exploration. The National Marine Fisheries Service conducted a trawler survey in the western Beaufort. In addition to the discovery of cod and pollock it found commercial-sized snow crab. The findings led regulators to ban commercial fishing in U.S. Arctic waters before seafood companies could send boats. A larger concern is the potential for environmental disruption, either from increased shipping traffic as Arctic ice recedes or from catastrophic oil spills. Another survey of the central Beaufort is scheduled this summer, led by the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

NEW YORK — Escalating unrest in the Middle East is again driving oil prices up and stocks down — and is sending some investors fleeing for classic havens, including precious metals and Treasury bonds. Gold hit a record high Tuesday, topping its previous peak reached at the start of the year. March gold futures soared $21.40 to $1,430.70 an ounce, topping the previous closing record of $1,422.60 reached Jan. 3. Silver surged 61 cents to $34.42 an ounce, a new 31-year high (unadjusted for inflation). Gold has risen in 10 of the last 11 trading sessions as social unrest in the Middle East and North Africa has spread. Near-term oil futures in New York ended floor trading at $99.63 a barrel, up
$2.66, or 2.7 percent, from Monday and the highest close since September 2008. Crude had briefly reached a high of $103.41 during trading last Thursday before pulling back. Oil’s price in London also jumped Tuesday, gaining $3.68 to $115.48 a barrel. Some investors snapped up Treasury securities, pushing yields down. The five-year T-note yield slipped to 2.12 percent from 2.14 percent Monday.

PORT TOWNSEND — Local “Public Health Heroes who make our community safer” are sought as Jefferson County Public Health prepares to observe National Public Health Week on April 4-10. This year’s theme is “Safety is NO Accident.” The annual JCPH awards honor people who live or work in Jefferson County and promote public health in their daily lives. Nominations from the public are due Wednesday, March 16. Following are the categories, though nominations can be made for other reasons: ■ Community Health Promotion, honoring individuals or groups whose efforts increase the quality of life in the county. ■ Public Health Leadership, for those who have provided leadership in creating
policy solutions that promote and protect the community health. ■ Business Merit, recognizing companies for environmentally sound practices or for making healthy choices in what they sell, how they support employees and how they promote community health. ■ Community Based Organization, recognizing those who provide infrastructure and services that promote public health in a variety of ways. ■ Special Recognition for the Public Health Hero, for individuals or groups who help identify a problem and then help the community work towards its resolution — planting trees, building trails, promoting physical exercise or health diets, fitting children’s car seats. “We want to hear your story” about efforts to prevent injuries and health problems before they occur,

Neighbors put on nighttime show
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I moved into our first home two years ago. A few months after that, our lives got even better with the addition of our son. After living here for a while, we noticed that the neighbors behind us have a large window in their shower, and they tend to take a lot of nighttime showers. I’m sure you can see where this is heading. For a long time, we chose to ignore it, but my motherly instincts are getting the better of me now. I can’t help thinking of the day when my son is old enough to realize what he’s seeing. My husband and I have been debating whether to tell our neighbors we can see them showering. Sometimes they get pretty carried away in there. Should I tell them we can see everything? And if so, how do I go about it without causing them to be embarrassed, ashamed or angry?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Rely on your past experience in order to make the right decision now. Someone is likely to play games with you mentally if you don’t have your facts straight. Preparation will be the key. 4 stars
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Put a little pressure on someone you feel owes you. Call in favors and take action regarding a new position or job you want. Do something you’ve wanted to do for a long time that will boost your confidence and improve your attitude. 3 stars
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll be inclined to overreact if someone makes a last-minute change that upsets your plans. Keep moving in the direction you feel you need to go and you will discover how capable you are and send a strong signal that you don’t need to rely on anyone for anything. 3 stars
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Follow your heart, your dreams and your intuition. Take on a little extra work and you’ll send a positive message to your boss, clients or colleagues. Pick and choose what you take on. Actions speak louder than words. 5 stars
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Things are looking up both personally and professionally. You will have greater insight into what others want from you and can, therefore, deliver the goods. The chance to enhance your romantic life is apparent. 5 stars
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can enhance your life by making alterations to your living space. Money that is owed to you or that you don’t have to work for will be presented in an unusual set of circumstances. A promise made must be kept. 3 stars
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You will learn a lot from someone you consider a doer. If you don’t try to fit too much into one day or one project, you will do a good job. A couple of personal changes will alter not only your outlook but your status. 3 stars
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take a good look at what you are up against and take action. There is no room for second-guessing. You need to be sure and to act fast. Your emotions will play games with you if you don’t stick to your game plan. 2 stars
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll be broadsided by what someone does behind your back. Don’t retaliate. Do what’s least expected and you will regain your status quo. It’s the little things that will count today. Keep it simple and to the point. 3 stars
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t make a foolish mistake by letting your emotions come between you and what you want. Everything is falling into place. All you have to do is what’s expected of you. It’s up to you to show your worth. 2 stars

Seattle trash tracked to recycling sites In unusual project, MIT researchers sniff out trail By Phuong Le
The Associated Press
SEATTLE — When MIT researchers sought volunteers willing to have their trash tagged and tracked, Jodee Fenton offered up about 10 household items including a pair of running shoes. Then she tossed them as she normally would, and watched as the electronic tracking devices gave clues to its journey: n Plastic wrap went from her Seattle curb to
Eastern Washington and then Texas. n An old computer recycled near downtown Seattle was traced to New Mexico and then Mexico. n The shoes stayed in south Seattle. “Out of sight out of mind, but it truly isn’t,” said Fenton, 62, a project volunteer who works as a special collections manager for SeatLibrary event, too tle’s main library. “It forces us to ask the They also tagged items questions: What are we that the public brought to a really doing with all this Seattle Public Library event.

trash and maybe we should be thinking about new ways of manufacturing or getting rid of it.” MIT researchers tracking 3,000 pieces of Seattle’s trash in an unusual project have found that a majority of that garbage ended up at recycling facilities. In 2009, a team from MIT’s SENSEable City Lab went to the homes of Seattle volunteers and affixed smart tags to pizza boxes, printer cartridges, cell phones and other items.
batteries to Minnesota. The MIT team even traced one printer cartridge about 3,800 miles, as it traveled by truck to Chicago and then by plane to near the California border with Mexico, Trash Track project leader Dietmar Offenhuber said. Another printer cartridge arrived at the same facility from Seattle, but took a different route along the Pacific coast. “This was quite surprising,” Offenhuber said, noting there was more to examine. “We really have to think hard about how we want to collect electronics and hazard household waste.” The distance that some of these items travel also raises questions about the carbon emissions produced in getting waste to a recycling facility. But Brett Stav, a planning and development specialist for Seattle Public Utilities, said there are many ways to weigh the value of recycling, such as keeping some toxic materials out of landfills. “Just because there’s a carbon footprint, does that mean you shouldn’t recycle it?” Stav said.
“Out of sight out of mind, but it truly isn’t. It forces us to ask the questions: What are we really doing with all this trash and maybe we should be thinking about new ways of manufacturing or getting rid of it.”
Jodee Fenton project volunteer who works as a special collections manager for Seattle’s main library
The vast majority of the trash MIT tracked reached a facility that followed federal Environmental Protection Agency standards. The city of Seattle has a contract with a recycling facility, requiring that it has 95 percent of the material recycled, Stav said, so it’s not surprising to hear that most gets recycled. “It’s an audit of our system. It shows our recycling does work,” he added.
Transfer stations The city’s trash is typically taken to two city transfer stations before being loaded onto a train to a landfill in Oregon about 300 miles away. Karin Landsberg, 43, a transportation planner who lives in Seattle, has often thought about where Seattle’s trash goes.
MIT researchers tagged a compact fluorescent light bulb, a printer cartridge, a circuit board from a defunct washing machine, a tin can and a glass bottle. The smart tags, about the size of a matchbook, sent data to the MIT server through a cellular network. “It really does matter that when we put things in the right bin, it does go into the right place,” she said.

Cashew and curry Classic country captain revised Old, new versions all the rage By Alison Ladman
The Associated Press
There’s always risk when tinkering with an old recipe, one likely to be invested with comforting memories by many. But with country captain, an Americanized “curry” dish that’s been around for at least 150 years, it seems to be all the rage. So we started with a version made popular by AP’s late longtime food editor, Cecily Brownstone. Then we updated it for the contemporary kitchen with better techniques — the toasting of spices for better flavor, for example — and better ingredients — few of us are willing to cut up our own chickens these days. The result is a delicious revision of a classic dish, one with familiar, but — we think — better, more sophisticated, more authentic flavor.

For homemade to best takeout, it needs to be not just better, but also just as fast and create little mess. So that was our goal when we set out to create a version of the classic American-Chinese dish — cashew chicken. The result is an easy meal that dirties just one pan and one bowl and comes together in about 20 minutes. Add some rice or noodles, and you’ve got a complete meal in less time than it would take for the delivery guy to arrive.

Students compete in Mars Rover Contest Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — Thirty-one students and their parents braved the 27-degree cold and a rigorous obstacle course Saturday morning for the Sequim Education Foundation’s third annual Engineering Challenge. Held at the Boys & Girls Club, this year’s challenge was a Mars Rover Contest. Budding engineers invented rovers of all shapes and sizes, both
wheel- and propeller-driven. Winners in the kindergarten through grade five division were fourth-grader Ashley Rosales, who took first place; third-grader Kyah Fukunaga, second; and third-grader Lily Engeset, third. The grade sixth through 12th division winners, in order of finish, were: seventh-grader Melissa Copeland, sixth-grader Jon Copeland and ninth-grader Angela Bentley.
“When we planned the challenge, we didn’t appreciate how difficult it was going to be,” said contest chairman Walter Johnson, and organizers and contestants had to be adaptable. “There was a lot of learning going on during the contest as students [and parents] watched the competition,” Johnson said. “It was similar to a real-life engineering project where we learn by observing results.” Students were required

The original challenge course was a 30-degree incline with water, rock and glass-surfaced obstacles but because of the difficulty, the committee realized that some changes needed to be made. Thus, the event was divided into two parts.
A prequalification course was constructed with a 15-degree incline and only a rock obstacle. The students’ scores counted toward merchandise prizes. Those who succeeded on the first track then competed on the original 30-degree course for scholarships. Like the 2009 Egg Drop Contest and last year’s Popsicle Stick Bridge Building Contest, everyone had fun,
and the event turned out to be a success. “The goal of SEF is to inspire students to succeed, and the can-do attitude of our Sequim young people was truly a wonderful thing to observe,” SEF President Dick Hughes said. For more information on the Sequim Education Foundation, visit www. sequimed.org.

PORT TOWNSEND — Soroptimist International of Port Townsend-East Jefferson County has donated $1,000 to Girls Circle, a program designed to promote resiliency in adolescent girls. In doing so, the Soroptimists are partnering with Jefferson County Juvenile and Family Court Services, which facilitates the program. Because of recent reductions in funding for juvenile justice programs, the support of the local Soroptimist chapter is necessary for the survival of the program. The check was presented to Barbara Carr, Jefferson County Juvenile Court administrator and one of the facilitators of the program. Through Girls Circle programs in several counties around the state, juvenile justice professionals are trying to serve their
female population in a more gender-responsive manner. The match between this program and the Soroptimists is a natural one because the mission of Soroptimists is to improve the lives of women and girls in local communities and around the world, said the Soroptimist announcement of the donation. During the 10- to 12-week Girls Circle program, girls can get together with peers and adult women in their community in a structured support group set up to counter trends towards self-doubt, help girls maintain connections in their community and allow for self-expression through verbal and creative activities. The circle meets free of charge at the Dove House. Other examples of projects by the Soroptimists of Port Townsend and East Jefferson County are: ■ Foster Care Closet,
