Nuclear crisis worsens Japan admits radiation leaks now ‘very high’

radiation sickness. “The level seems very high, and there is still a very high risk of more radiation coming out,” Kan said. A cascade of three explosions at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex was set in motion when last Friday’s quake and tsunami knocked out power, crippling the cooling systems needed to keep nuclear fuel from going into full meltdown.

SOMA, Japan — Japan’s nuclear crisis deepened dramatically today. As safety officials sought desperately to avert catastrophe, the government said radioactive material leaking from reactors was enough to “impact human health” and the risk of more leaks was “very high.” In a nationally televised statement, Prime Minister Naoto Kan said that radiation has spread from four reactors of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant in Fukushima province that was one of the hard-

Little danger seen here THE CHANCE IS slim of dangerous levels of radiation from Japan coming to the Pacific Northwest on the wind, state health and science officials say. “We really don’t think the radiation levels with any scenario will come to public health levels in Washington,” said John Erickson, head of emergency preparedness for the state Department of Health. Nevertheless, state scientists are checking air and water samples from four monitors for signs of a problem, and they’ll ramp up public warnings if anything changes. So far, none of the monitors — part of a national radiation-monitoring system that’s run by the Environmental Protection Agency — indicates elevated radiation. Peninsula Daily News

Japan damage could boost PA mill output Flagship, three other Nippon mills off line By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — With four of its Japanese mills closed indefinitely, Nippon Paper Group could be calling on its Port Angeles mill to take up some of the production. Harold Norlund, manager of the Nippon Paper Industries USA mill on Ediz Hook, said Monday that although the Port Angeles unit hasn’t yet been asked to ramp up production. But the parent company in Japan sent a letter saying that after damage is determined and demand is assessed, the interna-

HUGH MARTIN JR., 96, a composer, lyricist and arranger who created the enduring standards “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “The Trolley Song” sung by Judy Garland in the 1944 MGM musical “Meet Me in St. Louis,” has died. Mr. Martin, who collaborated in an unusual partnership with Ralph Blane on Broadway and in film, died of natural causes Friday at home in Encinitas, Calif., said his niece, Suzanne Hanners. The two men shared songwriting credits for “Meet Me in St. Louis,” which is set at the turn of the 20th century and follows a Midwestern family on the verge of moving to New York City. Garland lit up the screen with her renditions of “The Boy Next Door,” “The Trolley Song,” which was nominated for an Academy Award for best original song, and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” For another of Garland’s signature films, 1954’s “A Star Is Born,” Mr. Martin served as vocal director and arranger. He also accompanied Garland on piano during her solo show

at New York’s Palace Theatre in 1951. After finishing “Meet Me in St. Louis,” Mr. Martin served in the Army, performing for troops in Europe. He returned to Hollywood after the war and received another Oscar nomination along with Blane and Roger Edens for the song “Pass That Peace Pipe” from 1947’s “Good News.” Mr. Martin continued to write and arrange for both film and stage productions, including the Tony-nominated “High Spirits” (1964).


BOB MCCASLIN, 84, former Washington state senator from Spokane Valley, died Sunday. Mayor Tom Towey announced the death and said it was a great loss to the community. Mr. Mr. McCaslin McCaslin was first elected to the state Senate in 1980 and resigned in January because of poor health. He also resigned

last year from the Spokane Valley City Council. The Spokesman-Review reported the Republican was known for fighting taxes and government expansion and his sense of humor. He had been undergoing therapy recently after having a leg amputated and joked he was much improved, “Of course, I’ve never lost a leg before.” Mr. McCaslin was a World War II Navy veteran and a graduate of Washington State University who worked for Kaiser Aluminum and later owned a real estate firm.

Briefly: Nation GOP presidential hopefuls start at Iowa forum WAUKEE, Iowa — Several Republicans mulling 2012 presidential bids descended on Iowa on Monday to test their strength among social conservatives who hold the key to the state’s leadoff caucuses. Whether any of them manages to stand out from the crowd hints at how a scattered and as-yet undeclared GOP field will evenGingrich tually shake out. Five of the potential candidates took the stage for a forum at a church in the Des Moines suburb of Waukee, hoping to set themselves apart. “I do believe we have an extraordinarily fundamental choice to make in this election,” said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, one of those who participated. “We are at a crossroads that we cannot hide from: What kind of country do we want to leave to our children and grandchildren?” he asked. The forum also included former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, businessman and former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer.

Transparency declines WASHINGTON — Two years into its pledge to improve government transparency, the

Obama administration took action on fewer requests for federal records from citizens, journalists, companies and others last year even as significantly more people asked for information. The administration disclosed at least some of what people wanted at about the same rate as the previous year. People requested information 544,360 times last year under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act from the 35 largest agencies, up nearly 41,000 more than the previous year, according to an analysis by The Associated Press of new federal data. But the government responded to nearly 12,400 fewer requests.

Bodies wash ashore on devastated coast By Jay Alabaster and Todd Pitman

The Associated Press

TAGAJO, Japan — There are just too many bodies. Hundreds of dead have washed ashore on Japan’s devastated northeast coast since last week’s earthquake and tsunami. Others were dug out of the debris Monday by firefighters using pickaxes and chain saws. Funeral homes and crematoriums are overwhelmed, and officials have run out of body bags and coffins. On the economic front, Japan’s stock market plunged on the likelihood of huge losses by Japanese industries including big names such as Toyota and Honda. While the official death toll rose to nearly 1,900, the discovery of the washed-up bodies and other reports of deaths suggest the true number is much higher. In Miyagi, the police chief has estimated 10,000 deaths in his province alone. Miyagi prefecture bore the full force of Friday’s tsunami, and police said 1,000 bodies were found scattered across its coast. The Kyodo news agency reported that 2,000 bodies washed up on two shorelines in Miyagi.

Obama offers Japan aid The Associated Press

He pledged Monday to stand by the people of Most Japanese opt to cremate their dead, and with so many bodies, the government Monday waived a rule requiring permission first from local authorities before cremation or burial to speed up funerals, said Health Ministry official Yukio Okuda. “The current situation is so extraordinary, and it is very likely that crematoriums are running beyond capacity,” said Okuda. “This is an emergency measure. We want to help quake-hit people as much as we can.” The town of Soma has only one crematorium that can handle 18 bodies a day, said an official, Kat-

Body bags and coffins were running so short the government might turn to foreign funeral homes for help, he said.

Quick Read

Officials said those explosions had been linked to the venting of buildups of steam at two of the troubled reactors and that they had not compromised their inner containers. The nuclear woes compounded challenges already faced by the Tokyo government as it dealt with twin disasters that flattened entire communities and left as many as 10,000 or more dead. It also raised global concerns about the safety of nuclear power at a time when it has seen a resurgence as an alternative to fossil fuels. The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency said the Japanese government has asked the agency to send experts to help. Japan’s meteorological agency reported one good sign. It said the prevailing wind in the area of the stricken plant was heading east into the Pacific, which would help carry away any radiation.

THE DRIVER OF a bus in a horrific weekend crash that killed 15 people in New York City should not have been able to get behind the wheel because he once used an alias with police when he received several traffic violations, two state officials familiar with the accident probe told The Associated Press on Monday. Ophadell Williams was ticketed in 1995 for speeding and twice for driving without a license, using the alias of Erik Williams, the officials said. His driving privileges, under the alias, were suspended when the 40-year-old driver didn’t address the charges.

La Follette said Monday that he will delay publication until the latest day possible, March 25, to give local governments time to try to reach agreements.

THE VATICAN ON Monday kicked off the countdown to Pope John Paul II’s beatification by posting a YouTube video of his famous first papal speech, when the Polish-born pontiff asked the Roman crowd in St. Peter’s Square to correct him if he made mistakes in Italian. The clip was one of several from the early years of John Paul’s pontificate posted on the Vatican’s YouTube channel and linked to on its new Facebook page ahead of the May 1 beatification. John Paul was one of the most beloved popes, a globe-trotting superstar who died in 2005 after a 27-year pontificate.

THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT announced Monday it has given protected status to a former workhouse thought to have inspired Charles Dickens’ “Oliver Twist,” a move that should save the building from demolition. Heritage minister John Penrose said the austere Georgian edifice was “an eloquent reminder of one of the grimmer aspects of London’s 18th-century social history.” He said the building had been given Grade II listed status, meaning it can’t be demolished and any redevelopment must take account of its “special architectural and historic interest.” The young Dickens lived nine doors away.

New maritime center chief offers insight Director wants more people to participate By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — The Northwest Maritime Center provides insight into local waterways for all people, whether they are curious landlubbers or experienced mariners, says its new director. “Education under a sail is one of those truly powerful experiences that you can’t duplicate anywhere else,” said Jake Beattie while addressing the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce at the Port Townsend Elks Lodge on Monday. “You are in a hostile environment because we aren’t supposed to be on the water — we’ve created a hole in the water that’s sustainable only if everyone works together,” he said. There is no running away and no going ashore. “This is incredibly powerful for the students and changes lives,” he said. Beattie, who took over the helm of the Northwest Maritime Center in January replacing Stan Cummings, said his visit to the

chamber was one of his first opportunities to meet the community.

Former Seattle exec Formerly the executive director of Seattle nonprofit Bike Works, Beattie has said he will help to continue the maritime center’s mission to educate people about traditional and contemporary maritime life with a variety of programs and events. “The maritime center is an incredibly successful project,” he said. “It’s an amazing effort on the part of the whole community to create something to catalyze, celebrate and amplify all the great work that happens here.” Beattie pictures the maritime center as a way to blend those on the water and those on land in a cooperative way. He outlined several revisions to the facility that will allow it to achieve its mission. An example is to include more people, which is partially accomplished through little things like allowing

Beattie also plugged this weekend’s Spring Boating Symposium, which will feature three days of instruction and seminars about the latest boating trends and technology. “It will be three days of great presenters, people who are experts in their fields who are willing to come and share their concentration of knowledge in Charlie Bermant/Peninsula Daily News ways that I have never seen Northwest Maritime Center director Jake Beattie addresses the before” he said.

Clallam to consider endorsing youth program By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Thirteen years after its humble beginnings as a group of six concerned citizens, Prevention Works! of Clallam County has blossomed into a 300-member nonprofit organization that advocates for, educates and invests in children. Representatives of the volunteer coalition told Clallam County commissioners Monday they are rolling out a five-year prevention plan with the goal

of ending child abuse and neglect, substance abuse and violence. Prevention Works! is geared toward children and teens. Commissioners Mike Doherty, Mike Chapman and Steve Tharinger indicated they would endorse the prevention plan in today’s business meeting. Tharinger, who is also a state legislator, has been working from Olympia during the current legislative session and participates in county meetings via telephone speaker.

Norma Turner, a board member of Prevention Works!, said the commissioners’ endorsement is “important at a policy level and for the general public to understand that prevention is a good thing.”

Represents a dream While the prevention plan has tangible goals and performance measures, Turner said it also represents a dream that Clallam County can become a “good place for families and children.”

Park bus ban urged during lavender fest By Jeff Chew

Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — A representative of the Sequim citizens park advisory board has advised the city against allowing buses to drive into Carrie Blake Park during the Sequim Lavender Growers Association’s Lavender Farm Faire. “The park is for families, kids, etc.,� said board member Roger Fell, who is also a member of the Sequim Lavender Growers Association. Fell, who made the recommendation before the City Council on Monday night, said the parks board saw a “potentially dangerous situation� in the park, which has a playground adjacent to Guy Cole Center, where the Lavender Farmers Association plans to have tour buses pick up and drop off lavender farm tour participants. Both lavender festivals planned in July have until May 20 to submit a “shared� signs, parking, transportation and pedestrian plan to the city of Sequim, the interim city planner said. Joe Irvin said city festival permits for the Sequim Lavender Growers Association’s Lavender Festival at West Fir Street and the newly formed Sequim Lavender Farmers Association’s Sequim Lavender Farms Faire at Carrie Blake Park have been approved but are conditioned upon the rival organizations working together to make “a joint submittal� showing a sign, parking, traffic and pedestrian plan.

Coordination urged “There is still some issues that need to be coordinated between both groups,� Irvin said, adding he was confident there would be enough parking for the two simultaneous

events July 15-17. The separate festivals are the result of the Sequim Lavender Farmers Association, which earlier this year broke away from the original Sequim Lavender Growers Association, citing philosophical and administrative differences. While the original group will offer self-guided tours of its farms, the Lavender Farmers Association is planning on tour buses taking visitors from Carrie Blake Park to the pioneering original lavender farms around the Sequim-Dungeness Valley. Scott Nagel, Sequim Lavender Farmers Association executive director, Monday explained that under that group’s city permit, Carrie Blake Park would be closed to parking, with the Blake property and Trinity United Methodist Church lot on South Blake Avenue open to parking. A shuttle bus would take those who do not want to walk to Carrie Blake Park’s Guy Cole Convention Center, where they will be able to catch tour buses, Nagel said. “This will actually be safer for people,� Nagel said.

Mary Jendrucko, Sequim Lavender Growers Association executive director, said its traffic, transportation and pedestrian plan would not change, but the group was happy to work with the Lavender Farmers Association meet the city’s conditions. “Our position has always been we are willing to work with them,� Jendrucko said, to meet the city’s conditions for the respective festival permits.

‘Enough capacity’ Nagel said he did not anticipate parking problems because there was plenty of capacity. “There’s more than enough capacity, for more than 1,000 cars in that area,� he said. Nagel said he was expecting 10,000 ticket buyers for the farmers association’s bus tours, as has been the case in past festivals. City Public Works Director Paul Haines said the preferred entrance for such tour buses in the future would be at the Rhodefer Road entrance into the east side of the park. The road will be improved in the coming year, Haines said. Regarding the festival signs, traffic, transportation and pedestrian plan, Haines said: “We’re going to address how we move people all over the east side� of Sequim during the two lavender festivals.

The Sequim Lavender Growers Association, which is putting on the 14th annual Sequim Lavender Festival, will use the same shuttle parking lots it has used in the past — Bell Creek Plaza at QFC supermarket off East Washington Street, and the J.C. Penney parking lot at Sequim Village Center south of West Washington Street at South Seventh Avenue. ________ The growers association will stage its event on West Sequim-Dungeness Valley EdiFir Street, where it has in tor Jeff Chew can be reached at the past, while the lavender 360-681-2391 or at jeff.chew@ farmers association will

PORT ANGELES — Amber D. Steim, the woman who pleaded not guilty to vehicular homicide while under the influence of alcohol Wednesday in connection with a March 6 wreck that killed a 44-year-old Crescent Beach woman on state Highway 112, posted $50,000 bail and is out of jail. Steim, 24, of Port Angeles, who was released Thursday, faces an April 25 trial in Clallam County Superior Court. She is accused of drunkenness when the pickup truck she was driving crossed the centerline on state Highway 112 and struck another pickup head-on. Ellen J. DeBondt, 44, a home health nurse affiliated with Olympic Medical Center, was pronounced dead at the scene. Judge S. Brooke Taylor lowered the bail amount from $100,000 to $50,000 at Steim’s arraignment Wednesday. Deputy Prosecuting Attorney John Troberg filed a motion to modify the conditions of Steim’s release on Friday. The motion asks the court to prohibit contact between Steim and her passenger on the morning of the wreck, Nicole Boucher. It also asks the court to impose a curfew, require Steim to wear a alcohol detection bracelet and to “raise bail to an amount sufficient to ensure public safety.� Steim is scheduled for a 1 p.m. appearance in Clallam County Superior Court today. Prior to her arraignment, Troberg received a report indicating that Steim’s blood-alcohol level was 0.239 percent, or nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Education secretary: State’s system illogical Duncan calls for more speed on reform, no more studies The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan spoke to Washington state lawmakers and top officials via video conference Monday, saying the state’s education system is illogical and has an organization plan that isn’t a viable business plan. Duncan’s appearance was at the invitation of Gov. Chris Gregoire and in support of the governor’s struggling plan to consolidate most of the state’s education work into a new Department of Education, by going from eight education agencies to one. The plan has gotten mixed reviews from lawmakers and has attracted an alternative plan

approved by the House that would start with a study of how to streamline the state’s education system, rather than diving right into a new system. The governor’s plan has only passed the Senate Education Committee, but still is alive in the Legislature because it concerns a budget issue. Duncan spoke to and answered questions from a group of lawmakers from both parties, plus the governor and Washington’s superintendent of public instruction, who could get a new supervisor under Gregoire’s plan. He also reached out to Washington voters through an opinion piece on the same subject last week in The Seattle Times.

Duncan began his remarks by calling for more speed on education reform and repeatedly said there have been enough studies.

‘Sense of urgency’ “We have to get better faster. I just want to see the entire country share this sense of urgency,” he said. Duncan expressed his ongoing concern about high school dropouts, competition from abroad and the lack of good jobs for kids who do not continue their education beyond high school. The biggest challenges for kids are during transitions — from preschool to kindergarten, high school to college and so on — nearly everyone agrees, but the way to help students avoid getting behind during these times is open to debate. Gregoire and Duncan have said getting rid of the

silos and combining all the education stages in one department would streamline the process and help people work together to solve problems that affect them all. A spokesman for the U.S. Education Department said Duncan’s efforts on behalf of the governor are part of his ongoing efforts to support reform wherever it’s happening. Spokesman Justin Hamilton said Gregoire’s plan fits nicely with Duncan’s ideas for getting rid of inefficiencies. Gregoire has emphasized that her idea is not focused on saving money, but a preliminary financial analysis estimates it would save the state more than $500,000 in the 2011-2013 biennium. She handed out a policy brief Monday that focuses on the costs associated with not consolidating.

For example, in the 2006-2007 school year, 3,891 students repeated kindergarten or first grade in Washington, costing the state $10 million a year. Gregoire said this happens because some children do not arrive in kindergarten ready to learn.

Lack of preparation Another cost of the education silos, according to Gregoire, is the lack of preparation from high school to college. More than half the students at community and technical colleges, who graduated from high school in 2008, took a remedial course in college their first year. The cost to taxpayers for students taking high schoollevel courses at community college is $17 million a year. Duncan commended the governor for strategic think-

ing about education reform and lawmakers for being willing to hold difficult discussions with open minds. After the forum, several lawmakers said the discussion hadn’t changed their minds about the governor’s proposal but they did like some of the budget cutting and reform ideas Duncan suggested. “For me right now, the focus on our education budgets in a long and deep recession is my priority. “Certainly, good policy at the same time. I’m not sure this particular item slips ahead of those two,” said Rep. Marcie Maxwell, D-Renton. Rep. Curtis King, R-Yakima, said he appreciated the way Duncan framed the debate. “And the policies he espouses are things we should take seriously in our state,” he added.

SEATTLE — Imagine being alerted by cellphone that the ground under your feet will start shaking in 30 seconds.

Tokyo residents faced that situation just before their world turned upside down Thursday. The magnitude-8.9 earthquake that ruptured the seafloor off Japan was

the first major test of the nation’s $1 billion investment in earthquake earlywarning technology. Similar systems could be installed in the Pacific Northwest and California,

scientists said. All it takes is money — and a way to ensure the alerts do more good than harm. “It has to be a very clear message, and people have to know what to do with the information,” said John Vidale, director of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network at the University of Washington. The rising death toll in Japan underscores the limitations of a warning system.

$50 million price tag Maintenance and monitoring would require an additional $6 million a year. Those costs are small compared with the multibillion-dollar toll of even a modest earthquake. But with the state budget in its current state, Washington is considering cuts to the existing seismicmonitoring program. In Japan, where earthquake preparedness is woven into the fabric of life, the government spares little expense to protect its citizenry. “For every 10 seismic stations we buy [in the United States], they buy a thousand,” Cal Tech geophysicist Egill Hauksson said.

initial tremors generated by an earthquake. These so-called p-waves race through the earth but cause little damage. The warning is sounded in the interval before more destructive, but slowermoving, tremors called s-waves arrive. As the frantic search for survivors continues in Japan, it’s too early to quantify benefits from the alert system.

Technology did well But the technology itself performed well, and the messages undoubtedly saved many lives, Jordan said. Warnings that featured a countdown clock were broadcast via television, radio and cellphone eight seconds after the quake was first detected, Hauksson said. In Tokyo, more than 200 miles from the epicenter, preliminary reports estimate warning times ranged between 30 and 60 seconds. Many industries, medical facilities and transportation networks, such as the country’s bullet trains, are hard-wired to respond. Schools automatically route alerts through publicaddress systems. Students drill several times a year in duck-andcover protocols. To educate the wider public about the system, videos from Japan’s Meteorological Agency dramatize scenarios.

Alerts are most valuable to those in communities distant from the epicenter. For those near ground zero, such as the Japanese coastal cities flattened by tsunami waves, there’s not enough time to sound the alarm. Warnings would do Seattle little good in the case of a quake on the shallow fault that underlies the city but could benefit Olympia and other cities. But Seattle could have as much as five minutes’ warning of a coastal megaquake such as the one that rocked Japan and unleashed a deadly tsunami, Vidale said. Even 15 or 20 seconds can be enough time for people to dive under a table, for train operators to hit the brakes and for factories to shut down production lines, said Tom Jordan, director of the Southern California

Earthquake Center. “In my book,” he said, “every second counts.” Along with the U.S. Geological Survey, Jordan and a consortium of colleagues have been fine-tuning and testing a prototype warning system in California for years. Rolling it out statewide would cost $100 million, he said. The price tag for a system in Washington and Oregon, which face more powerful but less frequent quakes than California, would be about $50 million, Vidale estimates.

A family that reacts with fear and confusion loses their chance to take cover. The mother who calmly switches off the stove and herds her children under the kitchen table avoids a falling cabinet. Drivers are advised to switch on their emergency blinkers and slow down, instead of braking suddenly. “The ticklish issue is to make sure people don’t respond badly,” Vidale said. “It only takes a few mistakes to lose credibility.” To avoid the possibility of widespread panic, a system could be designed to notify only critical facilities, such as airports, hospitals, power grids and mass transit. But Jordan is convinced the information should be disseminated widely. “We can’t do anything about earthquakes, but we should learn how to use every second of warning we can get,” he said.

PA’s Myers Two Peninsula agencies mum on job collecting for Japan relief candidacy Peninsula Daily News

By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — City Manager Kent Myers on Monday acknowledged that he is a candidate for the top city post in Columbia, Mo. — his second bid at another job in the past four months. “I won’t have any further comment until after the interview process,� he said. Myers T h a t process will involve Myers and three other finalists in interviews with the City Council, city staff and general public in the central Missouri city Friday, Saturday and Sunday, according to a newspaper there.

Seeking Missouri post

Vela, assistant city manager of Abilene, Texas. Columbia Mayor Bob McDavid reportedly said the City Council will work quickly to find a city manager while ensuring a consensus. If that is reached quickly, a decision could be made a week after the interviews. Myers also applied for the city manager job in Corpus Christi, Texas, in December. The Texas native announced in January that he was no longer in the running when it appeared that he hadn’t made the short list. Myers said Jan. 31 that he had no other job applications pending. Port Angeles Mayor Dan Di Guilio said Myers informed him of being a finalist for Columbia city manager last Thursday. Di Guilio said Myers wants to be closer to family members in the Midwest. City Manager Bill Watkins, who retired last week, received $150,000 per year plus car allowance and retirement benefits. Myers’ salary is $157,590 in Port Angeles, which has a population of 19,038.

Myers, who has been Port Angeles city manager since December 2008, is seeking the top administrative post in Columbia, a university town with a population of 108,500.

Groups fear bills may hurt open records By Molly Rosbach The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Almost 40 years after state voters passed the Public Records Act, state transparency groups fear lawmakers are chipping away at the provisions of the law. Several bills introduced in the 2011 session aimed to clarify or narrow the scope of the act, a move Toby Nixon of the Washington Coalition for Open Government sees as unnecessary and dangerous. Nixon, president of the board of the coalition and a former state representative, said some local governments are extremely concerned by a handful of community members who make public records requests on a regular basis. Their reaction, he said, is to propose “onerous� charges for the labor and search time. Bills that would have allowed agencies to charge for records searches and required agencies to keep track of how much records searches cost died in committee. The law requires agencies to respond to records requests within five business days, either granting them, denying them or giving an estimated time frame on when records will be processed. If an agency fails to deliver records or to properly notify the requester of a claim to exemption, the requester may sue within a year of the agency’s response.

Statute of limitations A bill passed unanimously by the state Senate attempts to clarify the statute of limitations after a case last year in which a requester filed a lawsuit two years after requesting records. The lawsuit was possible because of the court’s literal interpretation of existing law, which says the one-year limit starts to run after the notifications are made or the last installment of records is produced. In the 2010 case, the agency had provided all the records in one go, and the court said the lastinstallment rule didn’t apply. When agencies provide records all at once, if current law is interpreted literally, there is no statute of limitations. Attorney General Rob McKenna requested the change. Deputy Attorney General Christina Beusch said that by specifically labeling the last contact from the agency in question — whether it’s a claim of exemption, the last installment of records or all requested records at once — as the date on which the one-year limit begins, both requesters and agencies will benefit. Requesters get the benefit of the “longest time frame� and the clear knowledge of when that time frame starts. Agencies have the security of not having to worry that stale requests that have been abandoned by the requester can’t come back to haunt them after the year is up.

Shortens time frame For Nixon, however, the measure effectively shortens the time frame during which denied requesters can file a lawsuit. “What it really does is

enable agencies to ‘run out the clock’ by ignoring the statute of limitations for PRA requests so that requesters have less time, or maybe no time at all, to file a lawsuit,� Nixon said. In the House, lawmakers voted to reduce the minimum daily penalty courts can impose on an agency that fails to respond from $5 down to nothing. Supporters said this allows courts to decide that a request went unfilled by mistake. The proposal would maintain the $100 maximum penalty as a tool to punish agencies that are deliberately uncooperative. “Let’s give the judge a little bit more judgment,� said Rep. Mark Miloscia, D-Federal Way, the bill’s sponsor. For Nixon, however, the reduction will make agencies more aggressive in denying records when they think they can beat the requester in court and escape penalties. Instead of seeing these bills go into effect, the coalition wants to teach local agencies how to deal with frequent requestors without damaging the Public Records Act for everyone. “The possibility that the Legislature could in a knee-jerk fashion react to these demands from agencies for limitations for the Public Records Act is the biggest threat to access in the state of Washington,� Nixon said.

He graduated from Port

Another serious concern for open-government groups is the ease with which lawmakers can sidestep the timely notification requirements for public hearings. Both chambers have rules stipulating that committees must give five days’ notice before a bill is to receive a public hearing. However, a majority of the committee members present can vote to waive that rule. Committees use this mechanism with increasing frequency as cutoff deadlines approach. Jason Mercier of the Washington Policy Center, a transparency watchdog group, said that in a few extreme cases, bills have been introduced, heard in committee and acted on in executive session, all in the same day. Even a day’s notice isn’t much help, he said, to people who live far from Olympia. “What’s the purpose of a public hearing? Not to allow the agencies or special interests or lobbyists to provide their input; it’s so that the general taxpayer has the opportunity to come and be heard,� Mercier said. A Senate bill that would have required specific notice and waiting periods before legislative action never made it out of committee. The statute of limitations bill is SB 5022 and now moves to the House. The penalty fee bill is HB 1899 and advances to the Senate. The public notification bill was SB 5419. Legislation must pass both the state House and state Senate before it can be signed into law by the governor.

Ms. Clendenon Clendenon and Gemma Blevins Clendenon. Jeanne and Lisa moved to their farm on Marrowstone Island, Nordland, in 1972, where Jeanne lived until shortly before her death. Jeanne became a certified beekeeper. They raised an organic vegetable garden, a variety of stock, eventually concentrating on organic beef and freerange eggs. Jeanne was the one called on to do most of the haying on the island and Chimacum Valley for many years. Few people knew she and Lisa were the technical “owners� of beloved island dog Rolf, a “lumbering shadowy form� who might walk into a home to lie at the feet of someone in need of comforting, or lie in the middle of the road for hours, or reside underfoot at the door of the Nordland

Store. After completing Registered Nurse (RN) and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) training at Olympic College in Bremerton, Washington, Jeanne volunteered with the American Red Cross on disaster relief missions, including Cambodia in 1992, and Louisiana for Hurricane Andrew in 1992, plus others throughout the U.S. She received Volunteer Leadership Honor Awards for her work there, in Armenia and the Soviet Union. She also volunteered with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office. Jeanne founded the Marrowstone Island Volunteer Ambulance Service after being told “it couldn’t be done� and whispering to Lisa “we’ll see about that.� Jeanne was well-known for her outspoken tenacity and wry sense of humor. As an RN, she stringently trained the volunteer EMTs. Both Jeanne and Lisa were recognized by Marrowstone Islanders as Citizens of the Year in 1982. Her organization memberships reflected many passionate interests: Chimacum Medicine Wheel; Ladies of the Elks; Sons of Italy; and Jefferson County Democrats, but perhaps none so consuming as these: Life Member Association of American Motorcyclists (AMA); member, Retreads MC Club; and Women’s International

Motorcycle Association. Jeanne claimed riding more than 1 million miles and had many long-distance awards: riding her 1100 Shadow in 21 days to each of the most distant four corners of the United States; winner of Retreads long-distance rally four years in a row. The annual Lawman 1000 was a favorite rally for her, where in 2001, her 250cc Honda Rebel was the smallest bike to participate — a bike she also rode to West Virginia and back a month before turning age 70. Burial is Friday, March 18, 2011, in Sound View Cemetery on Marrowstone Island at 11 a.m. Chief Roy Wilson, (Grandfather), the Spiritual Leader of the Chimacum Medicine Wheel, will oversee the memorial ceremony, which begins at about noon in the Recreation Hall at Fort Flagler State Park. Potluck dishes are welcome. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Marrowstone Island Foundation, P.O. Box 155, Nordland, WA 98358. Motorcycle rider friends who would like assembly directions to participate in “the last ride� escort for the memorial can e-mail marykaren1@peoplepc. com or call 360-379-1848 for Mary Karen or Garth McHattie.

Nothing could hold back Wynona THE NATIONAL WOMEN’S History Project’s theme for 2011 is “Our History Is Our Strength.” The month of March pays tribute to women’s history. My last column was about “one tough cookie,” Elizabeth Schmidt [“‘Grandma Smitty’ Blazed Her Own Trail,” March 1 PDN]. This column is about “one smart cookie,” a young woman who seemed to know that education could also equal strength. At a time when Forks didn’t even have a high school, she earned a diploma. Wynona Whitcomb was born in June 1905. Her mother, Olive, was the daughter of West End pioneer Martha Merchant Maybury. Her father, Roy Whitcomb, was a school teacher. In 1910, the Whitcomb family was living at Shuwah, but the marriage did not last, and sometime before 1920, Olive and her two girls, Wynona and Peggy, moved to her mother’s large home on the upper Forks Prairie, off of what is now East Division Street. When Whitcomb graduated from eighth-grade in the spring of 1919, that was it — there was no high school in Forks. There really wasn’t a junior high, either. There wasn’t much of anything. The school facilities consisted of two small buildings and two teachers, Mr. and Mrs. James

WEST END NEIGHBOR Egbert. The Egberts Baron would have a role in Whitcomb’s unusual education. Since 1917, the Egberts had offered high school instruction to eighth-grade graduates. Each year, a few started the four-year task, but no one had made it more than a year. For four years, all by herself, Whitcomb studied the curriculum the Egberts outlined for her. Her studies included ancient history, English, American literature, advanced composition botany and algebra. Five days a week, four classes a day, for four years Whitcomb completed assignments and took written tests. Her own undoubting motivation paid off. On May 18, 1923, the first high school graduation was held in Forks, a commencement for the one graduating senior — Whitcomb — and, of course, she gave the commencement speech, titled “Service.” In her speech, she said: “Thus we may live for ourselves alone, but we will become dull and selfishness will come to live in the depths of our hearts.


“Or we may live for others, do much good and be loved wherever we may go. “We may pick our own course.” It is certain in those four years Whitcomb picked her own course with the help of some wonderful teachers. She was a young woman who was in a class by herself — in more ways than one. Whitcomb was not only the first Forks High School graduate, she was the first woman to graduate from Forks High School and the first Forks High School graduate of Native America heritage. Whitcomb did not go on to college, according Whitcomb’s granddaughter, Liane White of Forks. She studied one more year under the direction of the Egberts and completed the equivalent of her college freshman year. In addition to marrying and raising a family, Whitcomb had a successful career in retail as manager of the J.C. Penney store in Bremerton for many years, White said. In 1924, the Egberts were instrumental in getting Quillayute Union High School built. The first official senior class graduated in the spring of 1927. This coming weekend is the 47th annual Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction at the Bank of America Building, 481 S. Forks Ave. Each year, the auction raises money for scholarships for Forks High graduates. If Whitcomb were alive today,

Peninsula Voices Evolving skills The writer of the March 9 letter, “‘Deprived’ kids,” apparently finds issue with grants and gifts given to our public schools for the purpose of enhancing the educational experience. I find this interesting considering the level of education the author asseverates. Apparently, she feels that the creative experience for our children is best served with a crayon and a piece of paper. While merit still exists for this form of expression, it does little to prepare young minds for the challenges of today and tomorrow. The “it was good enough for me” philosophy is not what America needs, and certainly not what built us into a preeminent world power. It is, however, exactly this mind-set that has degraded our educational process to the point that our own hightech industries must recruit engineers and scientists from India, China, Pakistan, Korea and Japan to fill their needs, as our own talent pool is shrinking rapidly. As a teacher, I have witnessed students as young as second grade using computer art programs to create sophisticated shapes, angles and color variations. These are skills that will eventually evolve into computer-assisted-design engineering, publishing, design and architectural skills just to name a few. Try finding an engineer or drafts person at Boeing who uses a pencil and velum. The author writes of “cultural trips” taken by her family in their Mercury station wagon. I wonder if that station wagon had computer electronic ignition, air bags, GPS navigation, anti-lock brakes and traction control, or even seat belts, for

Drunken driving

‘Trash is trash’

I would like to comment on the inability of our legal system to prevent so many DUIs. I think that if a friend or family member loans his/ her vehicle to a person who is prone to drinking and driving, he or she ought to be held accountable along with the driver. In my eyes, there is no reason in the world that a person who has a history of DUI should be able to get behind the wheel of any motorized vehicle. Three strikes, and you are out! We don’t need any more laws. We need to enforce the laws that are on the books. Maybe we need new judges and prosecutors that are tougher. Drivers who let their license lapse, insurance

As a former Peninsula [College] Pirates coach (1967-1972), I must express how pleased I am to read about the great success of this year’s basketball team. I didn’t see any of the games, but I followed the team through family and PDN reports all season. It seems all the more remarkable for this to have been accomplished by a first-year coach, and I certainly congratulate coach Von Vogt for his work. The entire team, of course, needs to be congratulated, as do the supporters. These championships don’t come out of the blue. Administrators, faculty, staff and students all participate. And certainly the legacy of recent years — no championship but certainly strong programs — has helped to culminate in this honor. Way to go! Jack Estes, New York

The writer of the Feb. 27 letter “Rights under attack,” in the attempt to cover it all, somehow manages to get it all “covered.” With what? That’s the question. I can’t speak to the writer’s defense of the Earth worship science issue, since I didn’t read the Feb. 16 letter [“Magical thinking”]. But that was only the launch pad for further stellar exploration of the liberal cosmos. We’ve again been enlightened by a representative of the “open-headed” philosophy. Years ago, we filled our heads with stuff from the Bible called wisdom. Now we’re admonished to keep our heads empty in order to allow it to fill with whatever doctrine falls from

space. What will it be like if this country, again, faces a real crisis, and people are asking the Earth to deliver them? Is the clay equal to the potter? Or with dog as their co-pilot will they run us into a tree? Did I understand the writer to imply that whomever chooses not to support abortion “rights” with their money because in their minds it is the “justified homicide” of more than 50 million babies under Roe v Wade, doesn’t condone homosexual lifestyles or believe it is in the same category as race, or is Christian, that they’re the bigots? Really? If so, then I’m thinking I’d rather be the bigot than the hypocrite. Right or left, trash is trash, but that kind of misinformation isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on. Thanks for advancing the cause of polarization. That’s one icecap that’s not melting. Edward Lowman, Port Angeles

between the pro-choice folks and the right-to-life folks. In my opinion, practicing much birth control eliminates much need for abortions and foster homes and adoptions. I was adopted and in foster homes. It’s not always the rosy picture some would have you believe. I survived only to learn that my only two children were born to die a slow, suffering death, by leukodystrophy. You’d better believe I got myself to the doctors and had my tubes cut — birth control. I volunteered for years in institutions full of children with less than perfect minds and bodies. I sat on the residents’ rights committees. I was a disabilities advocate. Nowhere did I see a lot of right-to-life folks doing the same. The image the right-tolife folks want everyone to see is that beautiful, healthy baby. And, yes, I am prochoice.

Public unions Once again, ultra-liberals are belching hot air, with their song and dance about

the supposed sanctimonious, defendable position of public employee unions (Peninsula Voices, “Real Reagan?” March 6 and “Not ‘hyperbole,’” March 7). Tsk. They should stop running away, stop soiling their diapers and get to work solving the problem. In many states, public employee unions have enjoyed a cozy relationship with the Democratic Party and a few Republicans. They have used their money to heavily subsidize (bribe?) politicians who have in turn continued to fund ironclad, princely benefits for government workers. America has indeed noticed the stink. Private-sector taxpayers feel the triple pinch — paying taxes for Social Security, paying into their own independent plans if they can afford it and being sacked by the tax man to fund overly generous (and sometimes scandalous) benefits for public employees. You Democrats think you can defend this? Get real. The unfairness quotient on this one is too high. Concerning overall debt everywhere, liberals continue to squeal “soak the rich.” Sure, but remember, these debts are so massive, you can’t steal enough wealth to cover it. The upper 1 percent owns about one-third of all privately owned wealth in America, most of it productively invested. You could play Lenin, confiscate all of this, send them to Siberia and still barely have enough to pay off national, local and state debts. The real obscenity in America is not the wealth of the few, it is our huge debt. Bad government structure and communistic political ethics (Democrats) explain much of it.

Piper leads PT boys golf team Grauberger top girl by shooting 39 for Redskins Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — Cody Piper scored 38 to spark the Port Townsend boys golf team to an easy Olympic League season opener against

Preps North Mason on Monday at Port Townsend Golf Club. The Redskins, with four players scoring 45 or less on nine holes, beat the Bulldogs 215-260. “The conditions were very cold and windy, everyone played well but we have seen lower scores in better condi-

tions,” Port Townsend coach Gabriel Tonan said. Sean Anderson and Jake VonVolkli of Port Townsend tied for second with 42 each while Ben Reinhart shot 45, Gabe Hensley had 48 and Trey Ottaway had 51. Andy Renne and Blake Eddy led North Mason with scores of 49 each while Tommy Renne and Austin Makkowski knotted at 50 apiece for the Bulldogs.

In the girls competition, meanwhile, Port Townsend’s Jenny Grauberger earned match medalist honors against North Mason in the season opener. Grauberger, a Redskins senior,shot a solid 39 in windy conditions on the course. Madison Johnson led the Bulldogs with 59 while Tori Bamford and Victoria Effray scored 62 each.

Washington women’s basketball coach Tia Jackson resigned Monday after four lackluster years of directing the Huskies.

Dawgs’ women’s coach resigns The Associated Press

SEATTLE — Tia Jackson is out as coach at Washington after four lackluster seasons where she failed to turn around a lagging program. Jackson announced her resignation on Monday after meeting with athletic director Scott Woodward. In her first head coaching job, Jackson was hired by former athletic director Todd Turner in 2007 hoping to add what Turner called a “spark” to the program after former coach June Daugherty was fired. Instead, Washington went 45-75 overall in her four seasons and also saw massive roster turnover during her time in Seattle. Jackson’s teams never won more than 13 games in any of her four seasons that also featured some of the worst losses in program history. Washington went 11-17 this past season and lost in the Pac-10 Conference tournament quarterfinals to California. “Although we did not accrue the amount of wins ultimately desired, I do feel their character, integrity, and academic success should be highlighted,” Jackson said in a statement. “With the addition of the incoming top-ranked recruiting class, the pieces are in place for this program to go to the next level. “I’d like to wish the University of Washington, its athletic department and most important, my current and past student athletes, all the best and a great deal of success not only on the hardwood but in life.” When Jackson was hired in 2007, she became just the third coach at Washington in 22 years. She took over from Daugherty, who was fired despite taking the Huskies to six NCAA tournaments in 11 seasons. But Jackson could never match Daugherty’s success and struggled her first couple of years with massive roster turnover with players leaving who were mostly recruited by Daugherty. Four players from the Huskies’ six-player recruiting class in 2007 eventually left the program. Jackson was 24-48 in Pac-10 games. Her low point came in January 2009 when Washington lost by a Pac10 record 77 points against Stanford, then followed up with a 28-point loss to California when Washington scored just nine points in the first half. Jackson had one season remaining on her contract. Whoever takes over will be charged with trying to get Washington back to the top half of the Pac10. Washington went to the NCAA tournament 10 straight seasons between 1985 and 1995, and went another six times between 1997 and 2007 with Daugherty as head coach. In 2001, the Huskies reached the regional finals before losing to Southwest Missouri State. “I want to thank Tia for her service to the University of Washington,” Woodward said. “I could not have asked for a coach who committed more, worked harder, and cared more for her players. “I wish Tia nothing but the best of luck in her future endeavors.”

Seattle Sounders’ Fredy Montero, left, battles with Colorado Rapids’ Jeff Larentowicz for the ball during their MLS exhibition match in Seattle last Wednesday. The Sounders open the 2011 season against Los Angeles tonight in Seattle.

Sounders battle Galaxy Season opener for both squads with title hopes The Associated Press

SEATTLE — It only took Seattle defender James Riley a second to remember what happened the last time the Los Angeles Galaxy played a regular season game in Seattle. “I know there was a refund and it wasn’t pretty,” Riley said. So consider the Sounders ready for tonight’s Major League Soccer season opener when Seattle hosts Los Angeles to begin the league’s 16th season. In May, the Galaxy beat the Sounders 4-0 in Seattle. The loss was so embarrass-

ing that Seattle’s management offered a refund to season ticket holders. Los Angeles followed up with a 3-1 home win in July, then dispatched the Sounders 3-1 in the two-game home-and-home playoff series. In six meetings, Seattle has just one victory against Los Angeles. A couple of victories by the Sounders would spice up what the league hopes to become a burgeoning rivalry between Seattle and Los Angeles to go along with the three-way Pacific Northwest rivalry involving

Seattle, Portland and Vancouver. “We want to exercise a few ghosts of some games from last year against L.A.,” Seattle goalkeeper Kasey Keller said. “It’s a different team for them, a different team for us. “We’re just looking forward after a long preseason of getting it going and getting it going right at home.” It was on Seattle’s raucous home field that Los Angeles provided perhaps the lowest of lows in the Sounders season. Shortly before leaving to join the U.S. World Cup team, Landon Donovan and his Galaxy teammates put on a clinic in Seattle that left the team’s ownership enraged. Donovan had three assists and a goal in the rout. “There’s a lot at stake because obviously they are the team that

knocked us out of the playoffs, so we want to come out and we want to play well for that reason,” Seattle coach Sigi Schmid said. “We also want to play well because it is the opening game of the season. We want to play well because it’s three points.” While Donovan and David Beckham are back to control the midfield for Los Angeles, the Galaxy will display a new look up front with the arrival of Juan Pablo Angel from New York and Chad Barrett from Toronto. That duo replaces Edson Buddle, who moved on to play in Germany. Even with the new strikers, the Sounders don’t believe the Galaxy will play much differently. Turn



Figgins, Smoak lead M’s past Cubs Seattle goes 8 spring games without a loss The Associated Press

PEORIA, Ariz. — This was the sort of performance the Cubs were expecting from Matt Garza. The right-hander had a positive outing for his new team Monday, pitching four solid innings in Chicago’s 5-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners. But Garza couldn’t stop the Mariners, who won their eighth spring game in a row. Adam Kennedy, 3 for 19 going into the game, drove in two runs with a sixth-inning single for the Mariners, an inning after Chone Figgins doubled in the tying run. Figgins and Justin Smoak, a pair of projected starters, had two hits each. Josh Wilson was 2 for 2 and scored twice. The Mariners are unbeaten in eight straight spring games,

including an extra-inning tie. Seattle starter Doug Fister threw 4 1/3 innings, allowing two runs and six hits.

A little wild He walked three in his fourth start of spring training. “It starts with the starting pitcher, and Fister did a good job of grabbing back control of the ballgame and working like he needed to work,” Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. “We’re working to execute offensively and do the things that we need to do to create opportunities for ourselves.” Ex-Mariner Bryan LaHair doubled in two runs in the first inning for the Cubs. Acquired from Tampa Bay this winter in an eight-player trade, Garza had struggled in two of his first three appearances with the Cubs. He was much better against Seattle, giving up a run and The Associated Press three hits with three strikeouts Chicago shortstop Darwin Barney tries to locate the and two walks.

UConn and Stanford No. 1 seeds By Doug Feinberg The Associated Press

Connecticut’s path to a third straight national championship could include a renewal of the most heated rivalry in women’s college basketball. For Geno Auriemma to match Tennessee coach Pat Summitt with an eighth national championship he might have to go through her Lady Vols, who earned the top seed in the Dayton region. The Huskies earned the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA women’s basketball tournament Monday night. If both come through their regions, UConn and Tennessee could meet again in the national semifinals at Indianapolis. Auriemma’s Huskies didn’t have to face Tennessee during its record 90-game winning streak that was ended by Stanford on Dec. 30. The two pre-eminent teams in the sport broke off their annual matchup in 2007 in a testy split. Baylor and Stanford were the other two No. 1 seeds. It was the second straight No. 1 seed for the Cardinal, who fell to UConn in the title game last season. “I think if it’s a fourhorse race, there are some dark horses,” Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer said. “I don’t think there is a clear-cut favorite. Last year they [UConn] were a clearcut favorite.” “We’re not a clear-cut favorite. Tennessee’s not a clear-cut favorite; Baylor’s not; and UConn’s not.” The most emotional matchup of the tourney,

WASHINGTON — Had enough of the he-said, hesaid rancor between the NFL and players? Don’t expect it to go away anytime soon. The outcome of the league’s first work stoppage since 1987 could be decided in court; the first hearing on the players’ request for an injunction to block the owners’ lockout was scheduled for April 6. In the meantime, there probably will be more of the same as Monday, when Kevin Mawae — president of the NFL Players Association, the now-dissolved union — accused the league of spreading “complete falsehoods and complete lies.” New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, on the same conference call as Mawae, said the owners’ final offer Friday “was all a front.” “I think it was all a show, with no real intent to get a deal done, other than just to say they made a proposal — that was no different than anything else that they proposed over the last couple years, couple months, couple weeks,” said Brees, a named plaintiff in the players’ antitrust lawsuit against the league. Brees and Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday, also a member of the players’ executive committee, complained that the players were not given enough time to assess and ask questions about the proposal owners made Friday morning. “It just seems odd you would wait until Friday to put out a 20-point proposal, when each point has a number of different details in it,” Saturday said. The NFL’s lead labor negotiator, Jeff Pash, said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press that Friday’s proposal contained various new provisions. He said owners offered a 10-year deal. “I was frankly surprised that the [owners’ labor] committee supported an offer as forthcoming as that was,” Pash said. He also said the league would have been willing to agree to a third extension to the collective bargaining agreement, which originally was due to expire at the end of March 3, before two delays. But another extension, he said, “wasn’t really discussed in a serious way, because it was perfectly obvious they weren’t interested.” By the end of Friday, talks broke off, the union announced it no longer would represent players,

Brees and others filed suit, and the owners imposed a lockout at midnight. “If they were saying they were not going to negotiate, under any circumstance, after 4 p.m. on Friday, don’t you think you have to ask yourself: Who was it who was in Washington putting on a show?” Pash said. “We answered all the questions they had at the time, and we never put a deadline on it. We’re not the ones who were filing a lawsuit at 5 o’clock,” Pash said. For all the things the owners and players disagree on, the two main sticking points are clear: how much money owners would get up front before dividing the rest of $9 billion in annual revenues with players, and the union’s demand for full financial disclosure. “If we’re going to talk about ‘trust,’ maybe you should ask the owners if they trust each other to see each others’ books,” Mawae said. “I think that’s a greater issue than the players trusting the owners.”

Additional $1 billion Under the old CBA, owners received more than $1 billion to cover certain operating expenses, before other money was split with players. When negotiations began on a new deal, the owners sought an additional $1 billion off the top. Both sides acknowledge there was movement in that area. But as the NFLPA’s lead spokesman, George Atallah, put it Monday: “The perception is that we were really, really close. The reality is we really, really weren’t.” Because the NFLPA says it no longer is a union, but rather a trade association — a distinction the NFL calls a “sham” — Atallah said any decision to return to negotiations would be up to the lawyers representing the players, rather than NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith. Asked whether there would be talks before the April 6 hearing, Atallah replied: “As of now, no.” The league, meanwhile, would prefer to return to the negotiating table. Starting Feb. 18, the sides met 16 times at federal mediator’s office. “We would get back together with them tomorrow if they wanted to,” Pash said. “We’re not the ones who walked out. We’re not the ones who renounced our status. We’re not the ones who filed litigation.”

Mariners: Win Continued from B1

The Associated Press

Stanford forward Ashley Cimino, left, forward Nnemkadi Ogwumike and guard Melanie Murphy celebrate on the Stanford campus in Stanford, Calif., on Monday after Stanford was selected as a top seed. however, likely will be in the Dallas region between No. 6 Georgia and No. 11 Middle Tennessee State, which is still dealing with the stabbing death of teammate Tina Stewart on March 2. “The tragedy was most unspeakable and our full committee and shared our thoughts and condolences,” selection committee chairwoman Marilyn McNeil said. “However, what we want to assure everyone is they were considered like everyone in the field. We looked at their body of work and what they had done on the floor over the entire season. “They were selected as one of the 33 best at-large teams in the country.” The Blue Raiders watched the selection show at coach Rick Insell’s house.

The coach was glad to see the committee reward this team after all it has gone through over the past two weeks. “These kids deserve it,” Insell said. “What they’ve been through these last 10, 12 days, I don’t know. “It’s been the toughest thing I’ve ever had to endure since I’ve been in coaching, and I’m sure it’s the toughest thing they’ll ever have to endure. I’m proud of them. I’m just proud of them.” First up for UConn is Hartford, which won the America East title, and is coached by former Huskies star Jen Rizzotti. The two teams have played each other over the last six years but didn’t meet this season. The Hawks are winless in 11 meetings against

UConn. The Huskies will be trying for their third consecutive title, matching their run from 2002-04 and Tennessee’s from 1996-98. UConn is one of a record nine Big East teams in the field. The Big East got 11 men’s teams in their field announced Sunday. Auriemma said he’s happy they got nine bids but was surprised Syracuse didn’t get in. “I was hoping that we’d get 10,” he said. “I don’t know what the rationale was for not taking Syracuse.” Unlike the men’s bracket that expanded to 68 teams this year, the women decided to stick with 64. Indianapolis will host the Final Four on April 3 and 5.

It was a vast improvement over his previous start last Wednesday, when he gave up six earned runs and four hits while walking four in 2 2/3 innings against Kansas City. “There’s still some things I’ve got to iron out,” Garza said. “Overall, I felt good. Really wanted to extend, didn’t do that, but I was able to use all my pitches. “I threw stuff in counts I wouldn’t normally throw it, but [Monday] was a day to get everything used.” Garza pitched a no-hitter against Detroit last season while going 15-10 with a 3.91 ERA in 32 starts. NOTES: Mariners LHP Nate Robertson will have arthroscopic surgery Wednesday to remove loose bodies from his pitching elbow.

Robertson, a nine-year major league veteran with previous elbow issues, signed a minor league contract with Seattle in January. He is expected to resume throwing in four weeks, but it could be summer before he can pitch in a game. LHP Erik Bedard, who has made three starts for the Mariners this spring, will pitch in a minor league game today even though the team has an off day. C Miguel Olivo, rehabbing a strained abductor, has resumed light tossing — but no timetable has been set for his return. The Mariners optioned RHP Chaz Roe to Triple-A Tacoma and reassigned LHP Chris Seddon to minor league camp. Garza, who had been in the American League until this season, had two sacrifices.

Sounders: Open Continued from B1 “We enjoy it. We got to play twice there last year in front of big crowds and I think our team thrives off that,” Donovan told reporters in Los Angeles. “I expect us to perform well.”

Seattle may be shorthanded as Schmid said midfielder Brad Evans (hamstring) and forward Steve Zakuani (hip) would be game-time decisions. Both were injured last Wednesday in Seattle’s final preseason game against Colorado.

Investors try to assess quake disaster in Japan Peninsula Daily News news services

NEW YORK — How far will the financial shockwaves from Japan’s earthquake reach? Investors wrestled with that question Monday as stock markets dipped across the globe and fears mounted about the impact of a partial shutdown of the world’s third-largest economy. Despite the damage in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami and its threat to global supply chains, economists said that unless the crisis at Japan’s nuclear reactors worsened, the effect would probably be limited. Still, it comes at a precarious time for the world economy, with the United States and parts of Europe only recently showing signs of job growth and a broader economic recovery. “This is a major catastrophe for Japan, and it is yet another negative shock for the rest of the world,” said David G. Blanchflower, an economics professor at Dartmouth College and a former member of the Bank

of England’s monetary policy committee. “The question is: How much does it set back world growth, and the answer is a bit.” As the crisis at stricken nuclear plants north of Tokyo threatened an energy squeeze for major Japanese automakers and electronics giants, Jens Nordvig, an economist at Nomura in New York, said there would probably be spillover effects outside Japan, though the global impact was likely to be small.

$186 billion Nomura lowered its estimate for Japanese growth this year to about 0.9 percent from 1.3 percent. But the move “is too little to mean we are going to take any of the other numbers outside Japan down,” said Nordvig. Barclays estimated the disaster could ultimately cost Japan $183 billion. By contrast, any impact on American companies would probably be muted, experts said.

Morgan Stanley estimated that exports to Japan accounted for less than 0.5 percent of the United States gross domestic product. “Given this relatively small weighting, we expect no noticeable direct impact on the U.S. economy,” the Morgan Stanley team wrote in a research note. But investors in the United States on Monday were nervous about the long-term implications for the economy. The Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index dropped to a six-week low. The index fell more than 1 percent during the day before recovering slightly to close down 7.89 points, or 0.6 percent, at 1,296.39. The Dow Jones industrial average also dropped 51.24 points, or 0.4 percent, to close at 11,993.16. Among the hardest hit industrial companies was General Electric, which designed the nuclear reactors at the stricken Fukushima plant in northern Japan. It fell 2.2 percent on

the day. The stock prices of some of the world’s big insurance companies also slipped as the markets looked to who would pay the bill for the devastation wreaked by the earthquake and tsunami. Shares of upscale retailers with large businesses in Japan also fell. Tiffany & Co. and Coach Inc. both dropped 5.3 percent. Caterpillar Inc. gained 2.1 percent on assumptions that it will benefit from the country’s large-scale rebuilding efforts.

Oil prices Oil prices dropped Monday as markets worried that any slowdown in Japan, one of the world’s biggest importers of oil, would crimp world demand. But later prices rose again on concerns in the Middle East after Saudi Arabian troops moved into Bahrain as part of a regional force. Spot oil prices ended the day up 3 cents to $101.19 on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Aflac dumps its duck voice actor for tasteless tweets The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ga. — Aflac Inc. said Monday it has fired Gilbert Gottfried, the abrasive voice of the insurer’s quacking duck in the U.S., after the comedian posted a string of mocking jokes about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan on Twitter over the weekend. The tasteless tweets are particularly problematic for Aflac because it does 75 percent of its business in Japan. One in four homes in Japan buys health insurance from Aflac. The insurer’s CEO, Dan-

iel Amos, flew to Japan on Sunday to show support for the company’s employees and agents. Aflac said in a statement Monday that Gottfried’s jokes do not represent the feelings of the company, which previously announced it would donate 100 million yen ($1.2 million) to the International Red Cross to help with disaster assistance. “There is no place for anything but compassion and concern during these difficult times,” Chief Marketing Officer Michael Zuna said.

The tweets in question were removed from Gottfried’s Twitter feed Monday after Aflac announced it would stop working with the comedian. Gottfried has voiced the duck in numerous Aflac commercials since 2000. His career includes a run as a cast member on “Saturday Night Live” and a role as the voice of the parrot in Disney’s “Aladdin.” He has also recorded a 50-minute show of dirty jokes. The insurer said it will start a casting search for his replacement. The company

also noted that Gottfried is not the voice of the duck in Japan. Aflac’s mascot has a softer, sweeter voice in Japanese commercials. Aflac is gearing up for an influx of claims in the wake of the disaster, though it expects only a minimal financial impact to total results. The company, which has been doing business in Japan since 1974, said less than 5 percent of Aflac Japan’s new sales and inforce premiums come from the hard-hit Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures there.

Nuclear plants in Europe delayed The New York Times

BERLIN — With the crisis in Japan raising fears about nuclear power, Germany and Switzerland said Monday that they would reassess the safety of their own reactors and possibly reduce their reliance on them.

Doris Leuthard, the Swiss energy minister, said Switzerland would suspend plans to build and replace nuclear plants. She said no new ones would be permitted until experts had reviewed safety standards and reported back. Their conclusions will

apply to existing plants as well as planned sites, she added. Swiss authorities recently approved three sites for new nuclear power stations. Germany will suspend “the recently decided extension of the running times of German nuclear power

plants,” Chancellor Angela Merkel told reporters in Berlin. “This is a moratorium and this moratorium will run for three months.” She said the suspension would allow for a thorough examination of the safety standards of the county’s 17 nuclear power plants.

Plans dropped for Shelton biomass plant Peninsula Daily News news services

SHELTON — Plans have been dropped to build a 55-megawatt power plant near Shelton in Mason County that would have burned wood waste to generate electricity, the company said Monday. ADAGE, a joint venture between AREVA and Duke Energy, is abandoning the $250 million biomass project for economic reasons, spokesman Tom DePonty said. “We’ve always said there are three key parts to developing a project,” DePonty said. “First there was permitting, which was going very well. Then there was the fuel supply, which also was going very well.

“The third part was the contract for power,” he added. “Demand has been stagnant for new projects, and low natural gas prices and economic uncertainty has put downward pressure on the price of electricity.” The project had faced opposition from groups that worried that air pollution from the plant would harm human health and the environment. But it also had support from local officials and others who saw the proposed plant as a chance to bring jobs to the area. The company had said the facility would create about 400 jobs during construction and more than a 100 jobs during operations. The plant would have

OLYMPIA — Gov. Chris Gregoire has signed a bill to end a sales tax exemption for Canadian shoppers visiting Washington state. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Kevin Ranker, D-San Juan Island, had passed the state House and Senate. It is intended to maintain revenue for stores in northern Washington, where visiting Canadian shoppers can contribute as much as 10 percent of the sales tax collected by retailers. Last summer, British Columbia adopted a new value-added tax in place of its provincial sales tax. The Washington state Department of Revenue ruled that the change made British Columbian shoppers eligible for a sales tax exemption. But Whatcom County and the city of Bellingham disagreed and sued, and an injunction by a Skagit County judge in July halted the exemption. The bill signed Monday puts in law the end of the exemption. It will go into effect July 1.

Auto plants halt production The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Toyota, Honda and Nissan halted production in Japan for most of the week after a devastating earthquake and tsunami. All three build most of their U.S.-sold cars in North America, so Americans shouldn’t see a shortage. However, the U.S. supply of some fuel-efficient cars such as the Toyota Prius hybrid, Toyota Yaris and Honda Fit, may be affected because they are built exclusively in Japan and could become more desirable if U.S. gasoline prices reach

$4 per gallon. Top U.S. sellers such as the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Nissan Altima — all sedans — are made in North America The three companies are suspending production to assess damage to plants, ports and roads. “There could be some issues where customers don’t get the exact vehicle that they want,” said Jessica Caldwell, an automotive analyst with auto website “But I would say it doesn’t look like the inventory situation right now looks dire.”

He vowed to continue to fight other biomass projects in Washington state including those planned by Nippon Paper Industries USA in Port Angeles and Port Townsend Paper Corp. in Port Townsend.

Walks will help wife with dogs


DEAR ABBY: You advised “Jealous of the Four-Legged Mistress” that her husband, “Monty,” needs to “put her in a higher rank in the pack” because he pays more attention to “Ginger,” the dog, than he does his wife. My heart ached for Ginger. She’s clinging to the one parent she has left and trying to make sure she doesn’t lose him, too. Ginger and the other dog are suffering from separation anxiety. If dogs don’t have a routine, they have a hard time learning to trust. If “Jealous” wants to make friends with the dogs, she should take them for a daily 30-minute walk. She may have to walk them separately at first, but once they get used to it, she can walk them together. In addition, she should start feeding them. After a few weeks of this routine, I guarantee Ginger will start paying attention to her new mistress, and after a while, “Jealous” will find herself a permanent object of Ginger’s affection. If some chew toys and closed doors don’t improve Monty’s attention to his wife’s physical needs, THEN it’s time to see a marriage counselor. Mama of a Rescued Dog

For Better or For Worse


Frank & Ernest

Dear Mama: Like you, many readers were unwilling to let sleeping dogs lie. They made no bones about offering helpful suggestions. Read on:

DEAR ABBY Instead of feeling threatened, Van Buren “Jealous” should talk to a professional who can help her learn to gain Ginger’s trust, loyalty and affection instead of competing with her. It’s possible “Jealous’” physical needs are being neglected because of her attitude. Jamie in Reno, Nev.


Dear Abby: Because dogs “love the one they’re with,” “Jealous” should spend quality time with Ginger. Take her for walks, give her treats and win her over with kindness. As a boarding kennel operator, I deal with clingy dogs all the time. It’s my job to make them feel at home and develop a bond with them. Consequently, the pets I take care of love me as much as they do their owners. “Jealous” sounds very insecure. She needs to learn a little about canines to understand that Ginger’s behavior is acceptable. Dog Lady in Michigan

Dear Abby: Many of the behavThat vindictive mutt wet only on iors “Jealous” described — following my side of the bed.

Ginger is an example of what dogs When I screamed in pain, the one do that produce rewards for them. who was supposed to love me best I think the real issue is that the yelled, “Don’t hurt the dog!” wife is concerned her husband is I am now happily married to an more affectionate toward Ginger. angel of a man who puts me first. She shouldn’t blame the dog for No woman needs to take second doing what comes naturally. place to a dog. Erica Mother of Eight in Sacramento, Calif. in Utah


Dear Abby: Losing his first wife was traumatic not only for Monty, but also for the two dogs. Perhaps Ginger is more bereft over the loss if she was close to his deceased wife. Animals experience loss, too.
