Census 2010: U.S. population growth slows

State to get another congressional district By Rachel La Corte

The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Washington state will get a 10th congressional seat under 2010 Census figures released Tuesday that show the state’s population grew by more than 14 percent in the last decade. Oregon remains at five congressional seats. Washington was among eight states that gained a total of 12 congressional seats in the new census count. Ten states lost representatives. The earliest someone can run for the new district in Washington state is 2012, and

that’s only after the location is determined by a bipartisan citizen commission next year. “Around every political watercooler in the state of Washington right now, discussions are actively under way as every amateur politician is trying to speculate about where the new congressional district would be,” said Nick Handy, the state’s elections director. Handy said the conventional wisdom is that the new seat will be somewhere in the Puget

Sound region, possibly carving up the 3rd or 9th District and including Olympia. (The 3rd and 9th districts border on the 6th Congressional District of Rep. Norm Dicks, D-Belfair, in Pierce, Thurston, Mason and Grays Harbor counties. The 6th District’s northern portions encompass Jefferson and Clallam counties.) Handy noted that the bipartisan makeup of the redistricting commission makes it “really hard to picture a political compromise that involves a district that has a heavy political makeup of one party.” Turn



The Census Bureau announced that the nation's population on April 1 was 308,745,538, up fr cent, the lowest since the Great Depression. The numbers are a boon for Republicans, with T mostly at the Rust Belt's expense.

Following each once-a-decade census, the nation must reapportion the House's 435 memberships to make them roughly equal in population, with each state getting at least one seat. Republican-leaning states will gain at least a half dozen House seats thanks to the 2010 census.

Harpist hopes to strum again for ferry riders

County seeking competition for public defender By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — The contract for public defender and indigent legal services will go out for bid during the next two weeks to allow competition with the firm that has held the contract since 2005. “We would like to give some other local firms a chance to bid on this,” said County Administrator Philip Morley. “There is a feeling around the courthouse that it might be time for a change.” The Jefferson Associated Council, headed by attorney Richard Davies, has operated as public defender for five years, for the last three on the same contract. The county had the option to extend the contract or put it out to bid. Morley said the bid option was chosen “because other firms have expressed interest in the contract.” The current $405,000 contract was based on the firm defending 400 Superior Court and 800 District Court cases per year.

PORT TOWNSEND — Harpist David Michael wants to see buskers back on the boats. “If you allow and encourage the music to resume and flourish here . . .. this will go a long way towards establishing good feelings towards WSF — not to mention bringing you extra revenue,” harpist David Michael wrote in a letter to Assistant Transportation Secretary David Moseley dated last Saturday. Michael performed during the summer months aboard the ferry MV Klickitat as it traveled between Port Townsend and Whidbey Island until Aug. 13, 2007. That’s when passenger complaints led state ferries officials to require that the Port Townsend musician be treated like any other passenger under tightened federal Homeland Security requirements. Michael was then required to pay for each ride separately, haul his harp and CDs on and off the boat for each departure, and was told he would have to buy a permit to sell CDs of his music.

Lohan being investigated for battery AUTHORITIES SAID LINDSAY Lohan is being investigated for an alleged misdemeanor battery against a female staffer at a rehab facility where the actress is receiving treatment. Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy Herlinda Valenzuela said officers responded to a Betty Lohan Ford Center facility early Dec. 12 for an incident involving Lohan. Valenzuela said a female staffer reported having a dispute with the “Mean Girls” star and that she wanted to pursue charges. No arrests were made, and Valenzuela said detectives continue to look into the case. Messages for Lohan’s attorney were not immediately returned. Lohan has been receiving treatment at the Betty Ford Center, about 120 miles east of Los Angeles, since late September. The investigation was first reported by celebrity news website TMZ.

Fire on tour bus Sixty firefighters tackled a fire Tuesday at London’s O2 Arena that engulfed two tour buses belonging to the

U.S. band Kings of Leon. The fire forced the Tennessee rockers to cancel Tuesday night’s concert — the finale to their European tour. London Fire Brigade said 12 fire engines were called out to battle the early morning fire in a loading area. Six people were treated for smoke inhalation, but no one was hospitalized. Seating areas of the arena were unaffected, but the band said in a statement that “the complications and disruption caused by this morning’s fire have meant there is now insufficient time to rig the arena for tonight’s performance.” The show will be rescheduled for next year.

Royal engagement Prince William and Kate Middleton will soon have company on the royal wedding calendar. Buckingham Palace announced Tuesday that Zara Phillips, Queen Elizabeth II’s eldest Phillips granddaughter, is engaged. Phillips, an accomplished equestrian, said she was shocked but “very happy” that her rugbyplaying boyfriend, Mike Tindall, had proposed. No date has been set yet. Phillips is close friends with her cousin, Prince William, who plans to

marry Middleton at Westminster Abbey on April 29. Their engagement was announced last month. Phillips, 29, is 12th in line to the throne. The 32-year-old Tindall has played 66 times for England and was on the team that won the 2003 World Cup. It was during the tournament that he first met Phillips in a Sydney bar. Tindall plays for club side Gloucester and is still a regular in the national side. The palace said in a statement that the couple got engaged Monday evening at their home in western England. Tindall said: “I am delighted that Zara has agreed to marry me. We are both very excited about the next stage of our lives together.” Buckingham Palace said the queen and her husband, Prince Philip, “are delighted with the news.” Phillips, the daughter of Princess Anne, has won medals in world equestrian championships and was once voted BBC sports personality of the year. She was due to compete at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 but pulled out of the competition because of an injury to her horse. Zara Phillips and her older brother, Peter, are among the most low-profile members of the royal family and the only ones among the queen’s eight grandchildren not to hold royal titles.

1935 (75 years ago) Clallam County Sheriff’s Deputy Walter Holenstein of Forks received a fine Christmas present in the form of a letter of commendation from the Forks Chamber of Commerce. It reads in part: “A year ago, when you took up your duties as deputy sheriff, we as a body and individuals were against your appointment and even made a trip to Port Angeles to interview Mr. [Sheriff Charles] Kemp. “But today we look back over the year and find that we had made a mistake and that Mr. Kemp had shown rare judgment in keeping you here as deputy. “So today we want to admit that we were wrong and to commend you for your fine clean stand that you have followed throughout the year. . . . “We are very truly yours, Forks Chamber of Commerce, by Walter T. Lynn, secretary.”

1960 (50 years ago) Additional and faster fire prevention measures have been provided for boats moored in the Port of Port Angeles Boat Haven. Port Manager Jack P. Hogan said that a “dry”

water line has been installed. That means that in case of fire at one of the floats, firefighters can hook their hose to the dry line instead of carrying several hundred feet of hose to the scene.

1985 (25 years ago) Coast Guard officials have increased their estimate of the amount of oil spilled from an Arco tanker that ran aground in Port Angeles Harbor to 148,000 gallons. About 63,000 gallons of the viscous Alaskan crude oil has been sopped up by crews using skimming vessels. The Coast Guard is inspecting the plugged hole in the Arco Anchorage and may allow it to continue to Cherry Point to offload the rest of its cargo.

Briefly: World Challenges ahead for new Iraq government BAGHDAD — Iraq seated a freely elected government Tuesday after nine months of haggling, bringing together the main ethnic and religious groups in a fragile balance that could make it difficult to rebuild a nation devastated by war as American troops prepare for their final withdrawal. One of the government’s first priorities will be to decide whether to ask the Obama administration to keep thousands of U.S. soldiers in Iraq after their scheduled departure in December 2011. Prime Minister Nouri alMaliki’s new government solidifies the grip that Shiites have held on political power since Saddam Hussein’s ouster. It leaves open the question of whether the country’s disgruntled Sunni minority will play a meaningful role. Despite tortuous negotiations that threatened to unravel the country’s tenuous democratic gains, the public face of the new government will look remarkably like the outgoing one.

Israel retaliates JERUSALEM — Israel on Tuesday launched an unusually heavy series of airstrikes on Gaza in retaliation for Palestinian rocket attacks, raising the prospect of a new round of bloody fighting after a relative lull for two years. The military said the Israeli strikes hit seven different tar-

gets in Gaza. Palestinian officials said eight militants were wounded. Then, the Palestinians fired another rocket at southern Israel, lightly wounding a 16-year-old Israeli girl. The violence followed the deaths of five Gaza militants Saturday in the deadliest Israeli assault on the coastal strip in months, indicating a trend of escalation. Two years ago, incessant rocket barrages from Gaza led Israel to launch a punishing three-week invasion that left more than 1,400 Palestinians dead, including many civilians.

Snow nightmare LONDON — The world’s busiest international airport told infuriated passengers not to expect full service until Thursday, five days after a 5-inch snow flurry turned hundreds of thousands of holiday plans into a nightmare of canceled flights and painful nights on terminal floors. Travelers’ anger boiled over into politics as Britain’s prime minister offered to put troops on snow-clearing duty. Europe’s top transport official threatened tougher regulation of airports unable to cope with unusually wintry weather. As the snow began melting away in much of London, transportation experts said it had revealed both Heathrow and the high-speed Eurostar train to mainland Europe to be woefully unprepared for what may be a period of frigid winters last seen here nearly a half-century ago.

Obama secures GOP votes for arms treaty 11 Republicans join Democrats By Donna Cassata

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama locked up enough Senate Republican votes Tuesday to ratify a new arms control treaty with Russia that would cap nuclear warheads for both former Cold War foes and restart on-site weapons inspections. Eleven Republicans joined Democrats in a 67-28 proxy vote to wind up the debate and hold a final tally today. They broke ranks with the Senate’s top two Republicans and were poised to give Obama a bipartisan win on his top foreign policy priority. “We know when we’ve been beaten,” Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah told reporters hours before the vote. Ratification requires twothirds of those voting in the Senate, and Democrats need at least nine Republicans to overcome the opposition of Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and

Jon Kyl of Arizona, the party’s point man on the pact. The Obama administration has made arms control negotiations the centerpiece of resetting its relationship with Russia, and the treaty was critical to any rapprochement. Momentum for the accord accelerated earlier in the day Tuesday — the seventh day of debate — when Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, the No. 3 Republican in the Senate, announced his support.

U.S. ‘safer’ with START The treaty will leave the United States “with enough nuclear warheads to blow any attacker to kingdom come,” Alexander said on the Senate floor, adding, “I’m convinced that Americans are safer and more secure with the New START treaty than without it.” “START” stands for Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty. Five other Republican sena-

tors — Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Johnny Isakson of Georgia, Bob Corker of Tennessee, Robert Bennett of Utah and Thad Cochran of Mississippi — said they would back the pact. “We are on the brink of writing the next chapter in the 40-year history of wrestling with the threat of nuclear weapons,” Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry, D-Mass., said after the vote. Obama has insisted the treaty is a national security imperative that will improve cooperation with Russia, an argument loudly echoed by the nation’s military and foreign policy leaders, former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, and six Republican secretaries of state. In a fresh appeal for ratification, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Tuesday that the treaty would “strengthen our leadership role in stopping the proliferation of nuclear weapons and provide the necessary flexibility to structure our strategic nuclear forces to best meet national security interests.”

Nearly 1 in 4 fails military entrance exam, report says By Christine Armario and Dorie Turner The Associated Press

MIAMI — Nearly one-fourth of the students who try to join the U.S. Army fail its entrance exam, painting a grim picture of an education system that produces graduates who can’t answer basic math, science and reading questions, according to a new study released Tuesday. The report by The Education Trust bolsters a growing worry among military and education leaders that the pool of young people qualified for military service will grow too small. “Too many of our high school students are not graduating ready to begin college or a career — and many are not eligible to serve in our armed forces,” U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan told the AP. “I am deeply troubled by the national security burden created

Results are worrisome “If you can’t get the people that you need, there’s a potential for a decline in your readiness,” said Barnett, who is part of the group Mission: Readiness, a coalition of retired military leaders working to bring awareness to the high ineligibility rates. The report by The Education

Trust found that 23 percent of recent high school graduates don’t get the minimum score needed on the enlistment test to join any branch of the military. Questions are often basic, such as: “If 2 plus x equals 4, what is the value of x?” The military exam results are also worrisome because the test is given to a limited pool of people: Pentagon data show that 75 percent of those aged 17 to 24 don’t even qualify to take the test because they are physically unfit, have a criminal record or didn’t graduate high school. Educators expressed dismay that so many high school graduates are unable to pass a test of basic skills.

World: Police: Device on subway couldn’t explode

A California taxi passenger may have an anger problem, but he’s no Grinch. Police in Sacramento got a report that a man pulled a knife on a cab driver during a dispute over the weekend but still made sure to pay his fare — plus tip. The Sacramento Bee said the rider argued with the driver about his desired destination Saturday, then pulled out a folding-blade knife, prompting the driver to run away on foot. The passenger also fled — after leaving his cab fare and a tip. Police said the passenger has not been found.

Broadway might need a superhero to save the new Spider-Man musical. “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” the most expensive production in Broadway history, suffered its fourth accident in a month when a stuntman playing the web-slinger fell about 30 feet into a stage pit during a preview Monday night. The safety tether that clips to his back failed to prevent the spill. The performer, Christopher W. Tierney, was wheeled out of the Foxwoods Theatre on a stretcher, still in his costume, and taken by ambulance to Bellevue Hospital with minor injuries. He suffered broken ribs and internal bleeding, said a castmate.

A Puerto Rico National Guard helicopter crashed in the ocean while en route to a drug raid. The body of one of the six people on board has been found, and the remaining five are feared dead, officials said Tuesday. The body was found nearly a mile off the coast in front of the Grand Melia resort late Tuesday morning, said Nino Correa, search-and-rescue director of the Emergency Management Agency. The victim has not yet been identified. Crews are searching for the remaining passengers, and Police Chief Jose Figueroa Sancha told NotiUno radio station that officials found the fuselage of the UH-72 Lakota helicopter just north of the island.

Police said Tuesday a suspicious package full of wires and powder that prompted a terror scare in Rome’s subway during the Christmas season was a fake made out of cement-like powder, not explosives. The device was found at around 10 a.m. Tuesday inside a train at Rome’s Rebibbia station, on the outskirts of the Italian capital. The subway car was at the end of the line and empty when the package was found, said Atac, which runs the Rome subway. Bomb-disposal experts checked the powder and concluded it was inert and that there was no trigger mechanism among the wires, police said in a statement.

In 2008, President Barack Obama lost in Texas and most of the other states that are gaining House seats. He carried most of the states that are losing House seats, including Ohio and New York. Each House district represents an electoral vote in the presidential election process, meaning the political map for the 2012 election will tilt somewhat more Republican. If Obama were to carry the same states he won in 2008, they would net him six fewer electoral votes under the new map. Some states Obama won, such as Florida, tilted Republican in last month’s election, and the electoral votes they will gain could further help GOP candidates in 2012. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said he did not expect the census results to have a “huge practical impact” on national politics.

“There is no way that I could have done this if I couldn’t sell CDs and had to rely solely on tips.” Michael said he will continue to argue for a new busker policy until Moseley answers directly.

Clallam honors outgoing elected officials By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Outgoing elected officials Judy Scott and John Miller were formally recognized Tuesday for their years of service to Clallam County citizens. Scott, the county treasurer, and Miller, the Department of Community Development director, lost their bids for re-election and will step down from office at the end of the month. “Both Judy and John really epitomize public service,” Commissioner Steve Tharinger said in a short ceremony. “Both of them really realize the challenges but also the rewards and also how important it is to serve the public, and they’ve done an excellent job.” Scott received a standing ovation from about 30 county employees and other citizens in the audience. She has worked in the Treasurer’s Office in various capacities for more than 27 years.

‘A lot of changes’ “I’ve seen a lot of changes over the years,” Scott said. “It’s been my pleasure and honor to serve there and serve the last six years as the county treasurer. I’ve been blessed with a very fantastic staff. I can’t thank them enough.” Like all long-term county employees, Scott received an etching of the courthouse as it looked in 1914. Scott lost a close race to Selinda Barkhuis, a county planner and attorney, in the Nov. 2 election. The campaign centered on the ongoing embezzlement case of former

ting them do what they do well.” “You will both be missed, and good luck in your futures,” Tharinger said. After the meeting, Scott said she will consider partial retirement and “take some time and see what develops.” Miller, former executive director for the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe, has accepted an offer to become the executive director of the Stillaguamish tribe in Arlington beginning Jan. 4. He worked there as a health director 20 years ago. “It’s been an honor to serve with both of you, particularly in these challenging times when there seems to be a duplicitous message from voters that want to pay fewer taxes but want better services, higher quality of services,” said Doherty, who won a close race against political newcomer Robin Poole last month. “To be a manager of a department during these times, or just being in a campaign as an elected official, is a pretty difficult challenge. Hopefully, we’ve all learned some lessons along the way. As human beings, we’re better for it, but the county government is better for it because you were here to help serve the public.”

Miller received a certificate of appreciation for four years as Community Development director. He said he enjoyed working with an “absolutely great staff.” “Too numerous to mention, but they are very professional,” he said. Miller thanked Commissioner Mike Doherty for encouraging him to run for the charter review commission in 2001, which got him started in county government. Sheila Roark Miller, a county code enforcement officer and deputy fire marshal, defeated John Miller in the election. “I wish the county well,” John Miller said. “I wish my successor, Sheila Miller, well, too.” Community Development has about 30 employees in planning, building and code enforcement.

Social worker’s grief inspires free support By Diane Urbani de la Paz

Peninsula Daily News

High per capita rates Rural Clallam and Jefferson counties have high suicide rates compared with the state’s more urban regions. In 2009, the state Department of Health documented 17 suicides in Clallam County and four in Jefferson County, or 24.5 per 100,000 people; in King County, which includes Seattle, there were 224 suicides, for a rate of 11 per 100,000. And suicide rates on the

raw tragedy by staying close to family and friends. And like Andrew, Holcomb believes in openness. Dialogue, she said, is much better than silence. An amazing thing happened, Holcomb added, between herself and a stranger. Her sister, who lives in California, told a woman friend about Holcomb’s loss. The friend wrote Holcomb a letter about losing her own son to suicide. “It was the most beautiful letter I have ever read,” Holcomb said. The woman’s son killed himself nine years ago — yet she remembered the pain exactly and reached out to another woman for whom that pain was brutally fresh.

Communication “It was so important to me,” Holcomb said, “to communicate with another mother who knows what it’s like” to lose a child the way she did. When that letter came in the mail, “it was another piece of my healing.” Holcomb said she also clung to the family members and friends who surrounded her at the memorial for her son — and who are keeping in touch. Although she’s not a big fan of Facebook, she’s grateful for the messages she’s still receiving from Weber’s friends on the Facebook page set up in his honor. Holcomb added that her heart goes out to her son’s friends, who found him in the park. She was unable to

read the police report about it until just a few weeks ago. She hurts, too, for her other children, a 29-yearold son and a 23-year-old daughter who have a long road of grief ahead. There is no rushing this process, Holcomb and Andrew agreed. “Some days, you feel OK,” Andrew said. “You’re putting one foot in front of the other, getting work done, keeping the household together.” Other days, “it’s all you can do to get yourself up in the morning.” People want you to move on after a certain length of time, Andrew added. But there is no time line for “finishing” your grieving process. For Andrew, who was born and raised in Port Angeles, starting a new relationship hasn’t been easy. “It’s hard to give yourself to somebody; you’re so vigilant,” she said. “I’ve built up a wall,” thinking that if anything were to happen to a man in her life, she would be protected. For people struggling with the loss of a loved one, Andrew offers what has helped her.

Family, friends “It’s important to have family members and friends around you. [Have them] bring in some food or take you out,” she said. “Find a place for a quiet cup of coffee or tea, or go out for a walk.” Make every effort to set

holiday spirit. It’s OK to cry. And it’s OK to talk about the person” who has died. That person is, of course, still a part of you. Holcomb, for her part, said she is grateful for the people who have come to her side, who have listened — and in some cases, who have shared with her their own stories of losing a loved one to suicide. Perhaps “that’s where our place is,” Holcomb said, “to be here for other people” who had to say goodbye too soon to a child, a spouse, a parent or a friend. That’s what Andrew is seeking to do: simply be there. She welcomes e-mails at julieanne2001us@yahoo. com and can be reached by phone at 360-460-9902.

PORT ANGELES — When Julie Andrew’s husband, Paul, took his own life in June 2002, she and her three children descended into a well of guilt and grief. In that place, they had one a n o t h e r. “But after the initial shock,” Andrew r e m e m - Andrew bered, “I thought, now what? There was no support” for survivors like her. Eight Christmases later, Andrew, a social worker, offers one-on-one support to others who have lost a loved one to suicide. She does not charge a fee and has received many calls from the Port Angeles-Sequim community. The holiday season is an especially difficult time for people suffering any sort of loss. And since this particular kind is one Andrew, sadly, can relate to, she encourages other survivors to talk about what they’re going through.

North Olympic Peninsula have remained high throughout the past decade. In 2007, 20 people in Clallam County and seven in Jefferson County took their own lives. In 2003, 21 people committed suicide in the two counties, and in 2001, the toll was 16. Yet for too long, Andrew said, suicide has been a taboo topic. She and her children went to the Out of the Darkness walk in Seattle in 2006, and she said she saw no news coverage of the walk, an annual event that takes place in cities across the country. Andrew is open about the circumstances of her husband’s death. Paul was just 41; the couple was in the process of divorcing. Twenty-four hours before Paul died, Andrew found out he had plans to kill himself. She asked police to search for him, but they didn’t find Paul until it was too late. Andrew wondered: “If I had stuck around, maybe this wouldn’t have happened.” And as a social worker, she asked herself, “I’m a professional; why couldn’t I catch this? Why couldn’t I figure this out?” She had to keep it together, though, to take care of her children, who were then 11, 8 and 7. They’re doing pretty well now, she said, but each time they go through their growth spurts, they have to reprocess what happened to their father. Andrew recently met Lori Holcomb, whose son, Paul Weber, committed suicide Oct. 28. Weber was 24 when he was found dead in Olympic National Park. Holcomb is coping, Andrew said, with the still-

The achievements of fall athletic teams — football, volleyball and cross-country — and clubs such as Natural Helpers and Honor Society were honored at the Tuesday conference. Associated Student Body representatives, students with perfect attendance and honor roll students were also recognized.

Death and Memorial Notice Arthur Jesse Stark January 24, 1946 December 16, 2010 Arthur Jesse “Jackson” Stark, age 64, of Port Angeles, was promoted to God’s Kingdom on December 16, 2010, after a 3½-year battle with multiple myeloma, a rare form of blood cancer. He was born in La Jolla, California, on January 24, 1946, to John Thomas Stark and Muriel Alice Lott-Stark. Arthur’s lifelong dream was to be a pilot, which he attained through commercial flight training on the G.I. Bill, working his way up to captaining a Boeing 727 jet aircraft during his civilian aviation career. He was an aviator for over 40 years, becoming qualified in UH-1 Huey and CH-47 Chinook helicopters while proudly serving in the Army, and working his way up from flight instructor, where he taught in each state he lived. Arthur, nicknamed Jackson by his family before he was born, attended Chino High School in California, and enlisted in the Army in May 1966. He was deployed to Vietnam, where he was a

Mr. Stark crew chief on Huey helicopters for two consecutive tours. He joined the U.S. Army Reserve in 1969, serving in aviation units in California, Oregon and Washington. In January 2003, he was called to active duty and deployed to Iraq until May 2004, piloting Chinook helicopters during the initial phases of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He married the love of his life, Karen Arlene Gilmer, in Fontana, California, on November 22, 1969, where his first and only child was born in 1972. In 1975, the family moved to Oregon, then to Port Angeles in 1980, where he remained until his death. While residing in Port

Angeles, Arthur was a corporate pilot for DelGuzzi Construction, Chief Pilot for San Juan Airlines, and completed his commercial aviation career with DHL airways. He remained an Army aviator until his retirement from the U.S. Army Reserve in 2007, after his diagnosis. Arthur is survived by his wife of 41 years, Karen, of Port Angeles; son, Jesse, daughter-inlaw, Tammie JohnsonStark, and granddaughter, Morgan Isabella Stark, of D’Iberville, Mississippi; brother and sister-in-law, George and Cheri Stark of La Pine, Oregon; brother and sister-in-law, Tom and Loretta Stark of Charleston, Oregon; and brother-in-law, Denny Gilmer of Forks. He was predeceased by his parents; sister, Kay, of California; and brother, Jimmy, of Oregon.

Peninsula Daily News for Wednesday, December 22, 2010




Gift shopping in natural beauty It’s no secret that the holidays can cause holiday stress. In these tough economic times, it’s every American’s duty to spend money at Christmas like a drunken sailor to mainPat tain the standard of living Neal that makes our country so cool. That is, unless you can’t. Then all it takes is a little imagination, a few gallons of gasoline, some rubber gloves, respirator and a strong stomach to turn Christmas on a budget into a free shopping adventure the whole family can enjoy. The North Olympic Peninsula is not only a recreational paradise, it has become a dumping ground for many of the local

inhabitants. To judge from the refuse along our back roads, recreational dumping is a family affair where you load up the truck with toys, furniture and animal carcasses and head for the freedom of the hills to dump it all up in God’s Country. I call it dumping with a view. Some of the more picturesque dumps offer a scenic splendor that can never be found in one of your citified recycling center. Going to the city dump is a dreary chore compared with the thrill of the wilderness dumper, tossing major appliances, engine blocks and offal from a cliff to watch in childlike wonder as they bounce down the mountain into the creek below. Other, more accessible dumps spread their inventory in a wider area throughout the forest to allow bargain hunters easier access and more choices for their Christmas list.

Often people who dump their garbage in the wilderness are multitaskers who enjoy the convenience of dropping off unwanted pets with their refuse. While I have long supported a spay-neuter program for pet dumpers, until that happens you have a good chance of picking up a cute little puppy or a box of adorable kittens at your next visit to a wilderness dump. Who wouldn’t want to share that joy of a holiday season. Have an automotive enthusiast on your Christmas list? You’re in luck. A great selection of hard-tofind parts for rare 1980s subcompacts lie strewn about the forest floor just waiting to be discovered. Sometimes entire vehicles, with undiagnosed mechanical difficulties and minor burn marks, lie just beneath the road awaiting a little TLC to get them purring again. Sure you may have to sift

through a ton of garbage, dirty needles, waste oil, chemicals, guts and broken furniture to get a real Christmas treasure, but it will all be worth it when you find an exercise bike, Vegematic or a genuine velvet Elvis painting. It’s the thought and effort we put into our Christmas gift selection that makes them special. Whether you call it giving back to nature or leaving a piece of themselves, the wilderness dumpers have left these hidden treasures throughout the woods for the rest of us to discover and enjoy. These designer dumps are where you find them. I don’t want to give away any secrets — heck, I’ve got my own last-minute Christmas shopping to do. But many outstanding boutique wilderness dumps are located in the Dungeness watershed where just downstream, thousands of people get their

water. I once asked a forest ranger why they didn’t do like they do in civilized countries like Montana: Put a Dumpster at the bottom of the logging road to avoid polluting the aquifer. “That would never work,” the forest ranger said. “People would just fill up the Dumpster with garbage.” Besides, how could Dumpsterdiving compare with the thrill of finding garbage on your own? Here’s hoping you find the dump your Christmas dreams are made of.

Where is the Arco Anchorage today? THE 883-FOOT OIL tanker Arco Anchorage was making international news 25 years ago today as crews sopped up oil while others cleaned thousands of waterfowl after the ship ran aground in Port Angeles Harbor. The single-hull vessel was the first of a class of 120,000-deadweight-ton tankers built in Maryland in 1973 for Atlantic

Richfield Co., or ARCO — now a division of BP LLC. At the time, it was the second-largest civilian vessel ever built in the U.S. Repaired after the spill of 1985, the Arco Anchorage continued on the TAPS — Trans Alaskan Pipeline System — route until 1997, when ARCO Marine Inc. sold it to Houston-based Oceaneering International Inc.

for conversion to a floating storage and production facility. Renamed the Ocean Venture, the ship never worked out as a production tanker because of its size. After more than $3.5 million in write-downs by Oceaneering International, the ship was scrapped in 2002. Meanwhile, single-hull oil tankers no longer are allowed to

ply American waters. All the tankers that anchor in Port Angeles Harbor now have two hulls to lessen the magnitude of a spill like that of Dec. 21, 1985. The last of the single-hull TAPS tankers, the SeaRiver Long Beach (sister ship of the Exxon Valdez), was taken out of service more than a year ago. Peninsula Daily News

troops have died in Iraq, more than 1,300 in Afghanistan. More than 100,000 civilians have been killed in Iraq alone, victims of “collateral damage.” The financial cost is now reportedly more than $1 trillion. Care for veterans’ physical and psychological wounds is estimated to cost at least that much. Yet the wars are waged mostly off-screen, and many of us don’t think about them daily. The wars were a nonissue in the recent election, though much of our economic woe is due to military spending, a category largely protected from the budget cuts which social service programs have recently suffered. We’ll all bear the economic consequence, but it’s the poor and formerly middle class who are directly affected, including those youth who enlist because they can’t find other work — the “economic draft.” During the holidays, take a minute to call the White House: 202-456-1111 (Monday-Friday). Tell President Obama to end both wars now. It’s a good Christmas and New Year’s gift to give our country, our troops, the Iraqi and Afghan people, and your children. Franny Koski, Port Angeles

Thanks for extending the tax cuts By Larry David THERE is a God! It passed! The Bush tax cuts have been extended two years for the upper bracketeers, of which I am a proud member, thank you very much. I’m the last person in the world I’d want to be beside, but I am beside myself! This is a life changer, I tell you. A life changer! David To begin with, I was planning a trip to Cabo with my kids for Christmas vacation. We were going to fly coach, but now with the money I’m saving in taxes, I’m going to splurge and

bump myself up to first class. First class! Somebody told me they serve warm nuts up there, and call you “mister.” I might not get off the plane! I’m also going to call the hotel and get another room so I don’t have to sleep on a cot in the kids’ room. Don’t get me wrong — I love a good cot. The problem is they tend to take up a lot of room, and it’s getting a little tougher in my advancing years to fold it up and drag it to the closet. I mean, I’d do it if I had to, but guess what? I don’t! Not with this windfall coming my way. Now I get to have my own room with a king-sized bed. And who knows, maybe I’ll even get some fancy bottled water from

the minibar. This is shaping up to be the best vacation I’ve had in years. When I get home, thanks to the great compromise, the first thing I’m going to do is get a flatscreen TV. Finally I can throw out the 20-inch Zenith with the rabbit ears, the one I inherited from my parents when they died. The reception is terrible and I’m getting tired of going out to bars every time I want to watch a game. Last month, the antenna broke and I tried to improvise one with a metal hanger and wound up cutting myself. Every time I see that scab, I say to myself, “If, God willing, those Bush tax cuts are restored, I’m going to buy a new TV.” Well, guess what? They have

been! It’s also going to be a boon for my health. After years of coveting them, I’ll finally be able to afford blueberries. Did you know they have a lot of antioxidants, which prevent cancer? Cancer! This tax cut just might save my life. Who said Republicans don’t support health care? I’m going to have the blueberries with my cereal, and I’m not talking Special K. Those days are over. It’s nothing but real granola from now on. The kind you get in the plastic bins in health food stores. Did someone say “organic”? The only problem is if, God forbid, the tax cuts are repealed in two years, how will I ever go back to Special K and bananas?

Well, I did quit smoking, so I’m sure if push came to shove I could summon up the willpower to get off granola and blueberries. Of course, I suppose with the money I managed to save from the “Seinfeld” syndication, I probably could continue to eat granola with blueberries, but let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. Life was good, and now it’s even better. Thank you, Republicans. And a special thank you to President Obama and the Democrats. I didn’t know you cared.

Disc golf OK’d for other parks But Robin Hill Farm Country site residents say no to sport By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

The house at 717 S. Chambers St. in east Port Angeles has had a dazzling display of Christmas lights for the last five years, so neighbor Michael Bowlby decided this year to do some decorating of his own: “Ditto” with an arrow pointing next door. The folks at 717 — Terry and Linda Stockman — howled when they first saw it as they drove away from their home the other night, Terry Stockman said. Bowlby put up his display earlier this week.

Wildlife center: Injured eagle could fly again — if it lives Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — A juvenile bald eagle that was shot in the left wing last week near Beaver could — if it regains its health — fly again, said a spokesman for the Northwest Raptor & Wildlife Center. “If he makes it out of this critical period in the next week or so, we’re optimistic that he has a reasonable chance to fly again,” said Matthew Randazzo on Tuesday. The young male bird remained in stable condition in intensive care Tuesday at Greywolf Veterinary Hospital in Sequim, where he is under treatment for a

broken wing and other injuries, Randazzo said. “If the fracture is too large to be bridged by natural healing, then we may have to do surgery,” he said. “There’s so much we don’t know right now.”

Some tips Some tips have been received about the shooter, he said, but “because it’s an ongoing investigation, we’ve been asked not to comment.” Both the wildlife center in Sequim and the state Department of Fish and Wildlife are seeking information about the person who

shot the bird. The eagle, which was born this summer and hadn’t yet developed the distinctive white plumage of an adult bald eagle, was found floundering on rain-soaked ground in a field near Beaver last Wednesday, Randazzo said. After receiving a report, Northwest Raptor & Wildlife Center Director Jaye Moore alerted Brian Fairbanks, a Fish and Wildlife officer based in Forks, who found the eagle and brought it to the Sequim center that afternoon. On Thursday, Moore took the eagle to Dr. Maya Bewig at Greywolf Veterinary Hospital.

Commissioner Mike Doherty said Winborn is actively looking for alternative sites, though it’s too early to make an announcement. Meanwhile, disc golfers have a dedicated field at the city of Port Angeles’ Lincoln Park to play on. Both speakers in a public hearing supported the county resolution.

PORT ANGELES — Disc golf will not be allowed at Robin Hill Farm County Park, a formal decision made Tuesday ending a long battle over a proposal to include the recreational sport at the 195-acre park between Port Angeles and Sequim. Clallam County commissioners voted 3-0 to add disc golf as an accepted use in ‘Grateful’ the parks and recreation Speaking on behalf of master plan — except at Friends of Robin Hill, a Robin Hill Farm. group that opposes disc golf at that particular park, Compromise John Benham said: “We’re A compromise four years grateful to the park adviin the making, the county sory board and to the comwill find another park to missioners for a modificabuild a course.

Santa hitting the links IT’S A BIG job but every year the famous man clad in red, Santa Claus, comes to town bestowing gifts on deserving boys and girls. Sometimes he’ll leave a nice Michael sleeve of Titleists, a designer Carman putter-head cover, one of those fancy Sun Mountain or Ogio dual-strap bags or other golf merchandise or apparel. A question I’ve always pondered about the whole affair: How does St. Nick relax after circumnavigating the globe and delivering presents to billions all in one night with the speed and accuracy FedEx, UPS, and the U.S. Postal Service can only dream of? Well, you’d have to ask him. But I bet he takes a little break from the North Pole and heads somewhere with warm surf, white sand bunkers and greens made of poa annua. By Dec. 26, he’s probably tired of anything Christmas-related, so I wouldn’t expect him to travel to play Christmas Lake Golf Course in Santa Claus, Ind. Besides, the southern Indiana course is expected to see snow flurries on Christmas Day and Dec. 26. If he wanted to stick close to home, the closest 18-hole golf course to the North Pole, North Star Golf Club in Fairbanks, Alaska is of course, closed for the winter season. If you are ever up in the Last Frontier with a desire to play, visit for more information. Another spot that Mr. Claus will need to wait for the spring thaw to play is Christmas Mountain Village in the Wisconsin Dells area of Wisconsin.

Midwinter scramble Sequim’s SkyRidge Golf Course, 7015 Old Olympic Highway, will host its Midwinter Open three-person Scramble on Saturday, Jan. 15. The tournament will open with a frost-free 9:30 a.m. shotgun start. Cost is $90 per team with gross and net prizes, range balls, two team KP’s, and a late afternoon lunch included. The optional honey pot is $60 per team, and a team long putt is available for $5. Each team must have a total handicap index of 15 or higher to play. And each team has to use at least three drives per player. For more information, stop by the course or phone 360-683-3673.

Sleuths who find one of the rocks will receive a free breakfast or lunch. Seven “Rock Hounds” have sniffed out a free meal so far since the promotion began. The golf course holds an all-day $10 skins game on Saturdays. It’s $10 for the game and $10 for greens fees. The course’s three-month long Winter Eclectic will begin on Jan. 1. Port Townsend’s next tournament is the Ice Cube Open on Jan. 8. Make sure to reserve your spot for the annual Arctic Open on Feb. 12-13.

Golf’s ranking system A reader e-mailed me last week, asking me to delve a little into the Official World Golf Rankings.

Young wrestling teams Sequim invades PAHS for Battle of Axe today Peninsula Daily News

All four high school wrestling teams on the North Olympic Peninsula are young this year but that doesn’t mean that they are lacking for talent or experience at key weights. The Port Angeles Roughriders have a returning state placer in senior Nathan Cristion, who is undefeated (9-0) on the year while the youthful Sequim Wolves already have a tournament win in the early season (Cardinal Classic at Franklin Pierce last weekend). The Forks Spartans, meanwhile, are loaded with underclassmen but have three stateranked wrestlers, and the Port Townsend Redskins also are

young but have some standout talent, headed by Kris Windle.

Battling for ax The Class 2A archrivals Riders and Wolves will square off at today’s eight-team sixth annual Battle for the Axe tournament at Port Angeles High School. The two teams tangled in the championship round last year with the Wolves coming out on top. “It was a pretty dramatic match,” Port Angeles coach Erik Gonzalez said. Gonzalez is hoping for a rematch and has put both teams in opposite pools in the dualmeet format competition in hopes that the teams will end up

Previews as pool champions again. There are four teams in each pool and at the end of the day the No. 1 squads from each pool face each other, the No. 2s go at it as well as the No. 3s and No. 4s. “Hopefully, we will meet Sequim in the finals,” Gonzalez said. The Riders won their own tournament the first year in 2004 but are still looking to bring the traveling ax trophy back home. This will be an especially tough tourney with at least five teams with a good shot at the trophy, Gonzalez said. He is expecting defending champion Sequim, La Center, Shelton, Kingston and Port Angeles to vie for the title. Central Kitsap could be in the mix, too, if the Cougars bring

their whole team. “I don’t think they are bringing their full team because some kids are missing because of the holidays,” Gonzalez said. “The tournament will have a good balance. Sequim still has the axe, and if we want the axe we have to go through them. They have a good team. “La Center impressed me at the Forks tournament. They beat us by 3½ points for the title. They are a solid 1A team with state placers. “Shelton is 2-0 in dual meets and has good depth with 49 kids. I expect them to be pretty tough. “Kingston beat us by five points in a dual meet a couple of weeks ago,” Gonzalez said. The Buccaneers went ahead 24-0 in the lower weights but the Riders came surging back in the middle and upper weights to make a match of it. Turn

PORT ANGELES — Jessica Madison ripped the nets for 23 points to spark the Port Angeles girls basketball team to an easy romp over North Kitsap on Tuesday night. The Roughriders beat the Vikings 78-27 with four players scoring in double figures. Taylyn Jeffers sank 13 points and grabbed 10 rebounds while Kiah Jones scored 12 and had a game-high 11 boards. Mariah Frazier had 11 points for the Riders. Port Angeles improves to 7-0 overall and in the Olympic League. “North Kitsap works hard but they are real young,” coach Mike Knowles said. “There are no seniors on their team and they play two freshmen. In a year or so they will be good.” The Riders led 23-7 at the end of the first quarter and 40-18 at halftime. Port Angeles out-rebounded the Vikings 38-19. They have a much tougher opponent in their first nonleague game of the season Thursday night at home. The Class 2A Riders host 4A Mount Tahoma. “That will be a good test for us,” Knowles said. “They are four times our [school] size and they have a 6-6 post.”

The Redskins scored only three points in the first period and trailed 22-13 at halftime. A.J. Barker led the Bulldogs with 21 points. “Barker was the difference in the game,” Webster said. “He played really well.” However, North Mason’s top player was held to two points. Webster put the Redskins’ top defender, Seiji Thielk, on the Bulldogs’ top scorer. Kylen Solvik led the Redskins with 13 points while Jacob DeBerry added 11. The Redskins fell to 1-6 in league and 1-7 overall.

Borchers, who wrestled in high school in 1961 and has been involved in the sport some way almost every year since, is starting his fourth year as Sequim’s head coach. He also has been a volunteer assistant coach in Yakima and Port Angeles for many years. Borchers has continued the strong winning tradition at Sequim, taking eight participants to state in 2008-09 and coming home with four state places. Joe Hutchison and Ethan Hinton were both two-time placers that year. Ethan is Dakota’s older brother. Sequim has had two state champions, Brian Gilliam at 135 in 2000 and Kyle Keith at 215 in 2002.

Forks Spartans The future looks bright for the Spartans, who are having one of their biggest turnouts in years. But most of the athletes are young, so it will take a couple of years for the Spartans to make waves as a team. “We have a couple of first-year seniors and a first-year junior plus a lot of freshmen,” longtime Forks coach Bob Wheeler said. “We have a good freshman group. Three have done a lot of freestyle. They should do OK. It will help us out to have them all four years.” The youthful Spartans showed some muscle by capturing sixth place at the tough 10-team Mount Baker Tournament on Tuesday night. Forks is led by three standout state veterans who are ranked in 1A. Two-time state participant Cutter Grahn, a 125pound junior, captured sixth place last year and is ranked sixth in the current poll.

Grahn captured first place at Mount Baker on Tuesday. Fellow two-time state participant Tyler Cortani, a 130-pound senior, claimed eighth place in state as a sophomore. He currently is ranked No. 5 at 130. Cortani was runner-up at Mount Baker. Dayne House, a 135pound junior, was a state participant last year and qualified for regionals as a freshman. He is ranked seventh at 135. House did not participate at Mount Baker because he is under a concussion watch, Wheeler said. Even though all three are ranked in different weights, they are pretty much the same size, Wheeler said. “At the end of the year, two of them probably will be at 119 and one at 125,” he added. Also winning a title at Mount Baker was Nick Atkins at 152. It was the first time Atkins was a tourney championship. Also doing well at Mount Baker were Ricky Barragan at 130 and Leandro Ordonez at 112. Both wrestlers tied for fifth place at their weights.

Port Townsend Redskins Port Townsend is another youthful team on the Peninsula. “We are a very young team and continue to just get better,” veteran Port Townsend coach Joey Johnson said. “We will be a lot better at the end of the season than we are now.” The 1A Redskins won four matches against the 2A Riders in a dual meet last week. Kris Windle at 152 pounds is one of the wrestlers to watch. “Kris Windle continues to do well,” Johnson said. Other Port Townsend winners against Port Angeles were Dillon Ralls at 125, Mikail Callahan at 130 and Ryan Taylor at 135.

HARTFORD, Conn. — No. 89 came and went as effortlessly as nearly all their previous games. This season. Last season. And the season before. UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma, never at a loss for words, was close Tuesday night. “It’s pretty amazing. It really is,” he said. No exaggeration there. His No. 1-ranked Huskies topped the 88-game winning streak set by John Wooden’s UCLA men’s team from 1971-74, beating No. 22 Florida State 93-62. Playing with the relentlessness that has become its trademark — and would have made Wooden proud — UConn blew past the Seminoles as it has so many other teams in the last 2 1/2 years. “I don’t want my team to compare themselves to anyone,” Auriemma said. “I’m not John Wooden and this isn’t UCLA. This is Connecticut and that’s good enough.” Maya Moore had a career-high 41 points and 10 rebounds and freshman Bria Hartley added 21 points for the Huskies, who have not lost since April 6, 2008, in the NCAA tournament semifinals. Only twice during the record run has a team come within single digits of UConn — Stanford in the NCAA championship game last season and Baylor in early November. When the final buzzer

sounded, UConn players sprinted across the floor to shake hands with the student section as fans held up “89” signs and “89” balloons bobbed in the stands behind center court. Two other fans raised a banner that read “The Sorcerer of Storrs” — a play on Wooden’s nickname, “The Wizard of Westwood.” After a brief huddle in front of their bench, UConn players re-emerged wearing “89 and Counting” T-shirts. As fans roared, the players bounced around at center court before posing for photos. It is one more chapter of history for UConn, and perhaps the grandest. Asked what he would recall from the incredible run, Auriemma mentioned a pair of experienced stars on this team: “I’ll probably remember Maya Moore and Tiffany Hayes. And how incredibly difficult it is to play that many games in a row and win ’em all.” Connecticut long ago established itself as the marquee program in the women’s game, the benchmark by which all others are measured. The Huskies already own seven national titles and four perfect seasons under Auriemma, and they’ve produced a galaxy of stars that includes Rebecca Lobo, Diana Taurasi, Jennifer Rizzotti, Sue Bird and Tina Charles.

M’s trade catcher The Associated Press

SEATTLE — The Seattle Mariners have traded catcher Rob Johnson to the San Diego Padres for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Seattle and San Diego made the deal on Tuesday. Johnson had been designated for assignment by the Mariners on Dec. 13 after the Mariners signed designated hitter Jack Cust and needed a spot on the 40-man roster. Johnson was Seattle’s opening day starter behind the plate in 2010 but his

struggles at the plate eventually led to his demotion to Triple-A Tacoma. The 28-year-old Johnson played in 61 games last season with Seattle, but hit just .191. He also struggled with an American League-high nine passed balls in less than a half-season. Johnson never played for the Mariners after Aug. 1. In 18 games at Tacoma, Johnson hit .297. Johnson was originally the Mariners’ fourth-round pick in 2004 and played parts of four seasons in Seattle.

Holiday bookings slim for second year in row By Tamara Lush

The Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Craig McTavish (aka Santa) has the beard. He has the belly. He even has a few tricks up his sleeve, like pulling up to parties on his HarleyDavidson in full Kris Kringle garb. But there’s one thing he doesn’t have — work. This holiday season has been more “no, no, no” than “ho-ho-ho” for freelance Santas. Bookings have declined as paying $125 an hour for Santa to visit a holiday party has become an unaffordable luxury. It’s the second year of fewer parties and events, Santas say. “This year has been a bust as far as making any money,” said McTavish, a retired firefighter who coowns a landscaping business with his son.

None on Christmas Eve “I’ve booked nothing. Usually there’s always something for Christmas Eve, but I don’t even have that.” In addition to knowing which children have been bad or good, the modernday Santa hears which families don’t have enough money for presents. “You can see the downturn from the chair,” said Nicholas Trolli, the president of the Amalgamated Order of Real Bearded Santas — a 1,700-member

social group the Boston Herald once dubbed “The Nation’s Premier Fraternity of A-List Santas.” Trolli lives in Sarasota, Fla., but travels around the country as a hired Santa. On a recent day, he worked a mall in Kansas City, Mo., that had to lower photo prices by 20 percent. “People are telling us they just can’t afford a photo with Santa,” Trolli said.

Drops his rates Even in-demand Santas with real beards have had to slash rates, Trolli said. They once commanded $200 an hour, but now they’re charging half that. Trolli said that anecdotally, his members’ bookings are off about 25 percent. Other Santas around the nation said that in good years, they booked 40 events a season and are down to fewer than 10. Most Santas don’t rely on the gigs as a primary source of income but say they enjoy doing it and the extra money is nice. John Wenner, a Santa with a real beard from Woodbury Heights, N.J., said his last good year was 2008, when he booked dozens of private parties and corporate jobs. This season, he’s had only a few gigs. “They’re way down this year,” Wenner said. “It’s amazing how down. “I’ve even cut back my price a little bit, to help sway a little more business. “As it is, the way the

They love talking to kids, making adults laugh and spreading some holiday cheer in a year where joy has been in short supply. Several mentioned buying presents — or even Christmas trees — for needy families. Trolli’s group encourages members to book charity events for free or reduced prices if they don’t get paying gigs. A lucky few — mostly in wealthier parts of the country — are reporting a booming business. Being Santa isn’t cheap. A decent-looking fakefur trimmed red jacket, hat, pants and boots cost upward of $1,000.

Walter Wood — also known as Santa Woody — is a Phoenix-area Kriss Kringle who looks like something out of a holiday Coca-Cola ad. The $100 an hour he charges “really doesn’t recoup the costs,” he said, especially when you take into account gas, travel time and the expense of miscellaneous items like beard glue. Steve Robinson, a 47-year-old Santa in St. Petersburg, Fla., whose main job is as a grocery baker, has another suspicion about why he’s gotten fewer bookings this year. “The kids are learning younger and younger that Santa isn’t real and that Mom and Dad buy the presents,” he sighed. “I can pretty much light up a room as long as the kids are 10 and under.”

FCC: Keep Internet pipeline open Providers can’t limit customer, competitor use The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Federal regulators adopted new rules Tuesday to keep the companies that control the Internet’s pipelines from restricting what their customers do online or blocking competing services, including online calling applications and Web video. The vote by the Federal Communications Commission was 3-2 and quickly came under attack from the commission’s two Republicans, who said the rules would discourage invest-

ments in broadband. Prominent Republicans in Congress vowed to work to overturn them. Meanwhile, critics at the other end of the political spectrum were disappointed that the new regulations don’t do enough to safeguard the fastest-growing way that people access the Internet today — through wireless devices like smart phones and tablets. The new rules have the backing of the White House and capped a year of efforts by FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski to find a compromise. They are intended to ensure that broadband providers cannot use their control of the Internet’s on-

ramps to dictate where their subscribers can go. They will prohibit phone and cable companies from favoring or discriminating against Internet content and services that travel over their networks — including online calling services such as Skype, Internet video services such as Netflix and other applications that compete with their core businesses.

Five-year fight The prohibitions, known as “net neutrality,” have been at the center of a Washington policy dispute for at least five years. The issue hit home with many Internet users in 2007, when Comcast Corp. slowed traffic from an Inter-

net file-sharing service called BitTorrent. The cable giant argued that the service, which was used to trade movies and other big files over the Internet, was clogging its network. The new FCC rules are intended to prevent that type of behavior. They require broadband providers to let subscribers access all legal online content, applications and services over their wired networks. They do give providers flexibility to manage data on their systems to deal with network congestion and unwanted traffic, including spam, as long as they publicly disclose how they manage the network.

$57 million award to caregivers

Real-time stock quotations at

OLYMPIA — A Thurston County jury has awarded $57 million to thousands of home health care workers who saw their pay cut under a state rule that was in effect from 2003 to 2007. In 2003, the Department of Social and Health Services decided to cut payments by 15 percent to Medicaid beneficiaries who had caregivers living in their home. The state argued that taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay in-home caregivers for tasks they would perform on their own — such as grocery shopping, laundry or meal preparation. But the state Supreme Court struck down the rule in 2007, saying that under federal law, all Medicaid beneficiaries had to be treated equally. A class-action lawsuit was filed that year on behalf of 22,000 home health workers, and on Monday, a jury determined the damages they were due totaled $57 million. The state is considering whether to appeal.

Gondola delayed CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN — Thursday’s opening of the Crystal Mountain ski resort’s new gondola has been postponed because engineers have found its cable had stretched too much. In a news release, the resort near Mount Rainier said it is typical for a new cable to stretch, but this one stretched more than three feet in 24 hours. The only solution is to resplice the cable, which could take up to a week. The $5.5 million enclosed lift is the only one in the state and will take skiers and other passengers up nearly 2,500 feet to the resort’s Summit House. No new date for its opening has been set.

Texas executed the largest number of people by far in 2010 but also showed the biggest drop in inmates put to death. There were 17 executions this year in Texas, compared with 24 in 2009. The 2010 total is the state’s lowest since 2001. The group’s report attributed the Texas drop to “the state’s adoption of a sen-

WASHINGTON — The number of executions in the United States dropped 12 percent in 2010, and the number of people sentenced to die is nearing historic lows, a report from an anticapital punishment group said. The Death Penalty Information Center attributed the reductions to changing attitudes toward capital punishment but acknowledged there have also been problems with the availability of chemicals used in lethal injections. “Whether it’s concerns about the high costs of the death penalty at a time when budgets are being slashed, the risks of executing the innocent, unfairness or other reasons, the nation continued to move away from the death penalty in 2010,” said Richard Dieter, the center’s executive director and author of the report. The group counted 46 executions in Texas, Ohio, Alabama, Virginia, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Arizona, Utah and Washington in 2010. That is fewer than in 2009, when there were 52 executions in 16 states. Tennessee, South Carolina, Indiana and Missouri did not execute anyone in

2010 but did so in 2009. The center’s 2010 numbers are through Monday. The Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics has similar figures, counting 45 executions between January and Nov. 30, 2010. Thirty-five states have the death penalty.

Our Peninsula


Karen Griffiths/for Peninsula Daily News

Receiving a fuel voucher through the Peninsula Daily News’ Peninsula Home Fund was just the start of a happier life for Ramona Welch and her children — Elijah, holding his kitty, Skittles, and Rita.

Home Fund helps reunite family EDITOR’S NOTE — For 21 years, Peninsula Daily News readers in Jefferson and Clallam counties have supported the “hand up, not a handout” Peninsula Home Fund. Today, we feature another in a series of articles on how the Home Fund operates and who benefits from our readers’ generosity. The next article will appear Sunday along with a new list of donors. By Karen Griffiths

For Peninsula Daily News

CARLSBORG — “How can you mend a broken heart?” asked the Bee Gees in a song. One way is through the gift of giving. Ramona Welch says she is very grateful for the help she received from the Peninsula Daily News’ Peninsula Home Fund. It was a small amount of assistance but absolutely crucial at a time when she and her son needed “a hand up, not a handout.” And the Home Fund also led to a life-changing surprise for Ramona and her children. “When you’re hard-up, it’s nice to know that there’s actually people out there who care enough to donate so that when a person needs help, it’s there,” says Ramona. In 2008, Ramona suffered a broken heart when her husband, Allen, died just two weeks short of their 25th anniversary. At the same time, their son, Elijah, now 14, was acting out and having serious issues. He went to live temporarily in a foster home. As if that weren’t enough, 10 weeks later, her dad died. She felt very lost and alone. In hopes of getting a fresh start, the lifelong Port Angeles resident moved to Sequim with her youngest child, Rita, now 10. Ramona spent the next two years working toward the day her family could be reunited, with her son coming home to live. That day finally came in July. But Ramona’s joy was quickly diminished by ensuing financial woes. She and her children each receive an allotment from Social Security survivor benefits. The foster home had been receiving Elijah’s, and rightly so, while Ramona’s and Rita’s combined allotment was $967 a month. “His money got delayed somewhere in the system,” says Ramona. “So for the first three months after my son came home, July through August, the three of us lived on the $967 a month, which was meant for only two.” Part of Ramona’s agreement with the state authorities in bringing Elijah home is that she needed to get him to mandatory therapy and doctor’s appointments. “With three people in the house, I just got behind bills and became in danger of losing my apartment,” Ramona recalls.

Give voice to your heart A GIFT OF any size is welcome. The Peninsula Home Fund has never been a campaign of heavy hitters. If you can contribute only a few dollars, please don’t hesitate because you think it won’t make a difference. Every gift makes a difference, regardless of its size. To donate, write a check to “Peninsula Home Fund” and attach it to the coupon that accompanies this story. Mail both items to Peninsula Home Fund, Peninsula Daily News, P.O. Box 1330, Port Angeles, WA 98362. Or drop them at the newspaper’s offices in Port Desperation set in. She knew she had to get Elijah to his appointments or risk losing him. Furthermore, if she lost their home, they’d all be in trouble. She went to the Department of Social and Health Services office in Port Angeles hoping to get temporary financial aid until Elijah’s monthly stipend started. DSHS had to deny help because of her existing Social Security income. However, the case workers there suggested she talk to OlyCAP about a grant from the Peninsula Home Fund. OlyCAP is the nonprofit Olympic Community Action Programs, the No. 1 emergency care agency in Jefferson and Clallam counties. It also screens the applicants for the Peninsula Daily News’ “hand up, not a handout” Peninsula Home Fund and distributes the funds. Ramona walked across the street to the OlyCAP office, where she met Betty Barnard, a trained volunteer who works to find ways up and out of a crisis. After an interview, Betty arranged for Ramona to receive a fuel voucher from the Home Fund. With it, Ramona could get gas for her car. She could drive her son. He wouldn’t miss his next appointment. He could continue living with his mother and sister. Then, there was the surprise — after studying Ramona’s situation, Betty told her she qualified to receive assistance through government-aided programs, such as HUD’s Section 8 Family Reunification program. It enabled the family to move into a three-bedroom home in Carlsborg this month. “Getting this home was a huge blessing,” says Ramona. “The help we’ve been receiving

To delay may mean to forget. lately is such a relief — it’s all a blessing. “Since my son’s been home, he’s just blossomed. “Both kids are doing well, and I feel like we can all relax a bit and enjoy life.”

No deductions — a ‘hand up’ Since Thanksgiving and through Dec. 31, the PDN’s Peninsula Home Fund — a safety net for local residents when there is nowhere else to turn — is seeking contributions for its annual holiday season fundraising campaign. From Port Townsend to Forks, from Quilcene and Brinnon to LaPush, it’s a “hand up, not a handout” for children, teens, families and the elderly. All the money collected for the Home Fund goes — without any deductions — for hot meals for seniors, meeting rent, energy and transportation needs, warm winter coats for kids, home repairs for the low-income, needed eyeglasses and prescription drugs, dental work, safe, drug-free temporary housing . . . The list goes on and on. Since Jan. 1, the Home Fund has helped more than 2,100 individuals and families like Ramona Welch’s — in Jefferson and Clallam counties. Peninsula Home Fund is a unique, nonprofit program: n  No money is deducted for administration or other overhead. Your entire donation — 100 percent, every penny — goes to help those who are facing times of crisis. n  All contributions are fully IRS tax-deductible. n  Your personal information is kept confidential. Peninsula Daily News does not rent, sell, give or otherwise share your address or other information with anyone or make any other use of the information.

n  Instances of help are designed to get an individual or family through the crisis — and every effort is made to put them back on the path to self-sufficiency. That’s the “hand up, not a handout” focus of the fund. In many instances, Peninsula Home Fund case managers at OlyCAP work with individuals or families to develop a plan to become financially stable — and avoid a recurrence of the emergency that prompted aid from the fund. n  Begun in 1989, the fund is supported entirely by Jefferson and Clallam residents. Individuals, couples, businesses, churches, service organizations and school groups set a record for contributions in 2009 — $230,806.95. With heavy demand this year, the carefully rationed fund is being rapidly depleted. All the money collected in 2009 is expected to be spent before Dec. 31. n  As was done with Ramona, money is usually distributed in

small amounts, usually up to $150. n  Assistance is limited to one time in a 12-month period. n  Peninsula Home Fund contributions are also used in conjunction with money from other agencies, enabling OlyCAP to stretch the value of the contribution.

Applying to the Home Fund To apply for a grant from the fund, phone OlyCAP at 360-4524726 (Port Angeles and Sequim) or 360-385-2571 (Jefferson County). There’s also an OlyCAP office in Forks — 360-374-6193. If you have any questions about the fund, phone John Brewer, Peninsula Daily News editor and publisher, at 360-4173500.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be careful how much you spend and on what. Don’t let your emotions cause you to donate cash; if you want to help, offer your time or a service you can share. Final touches to your work will separate what you produce from the competition. 3 stars

Hamilton students raise $552.84 PORT ANGELES — Hamilton Elementary School students recently completed their second annual “Pennies for Peace” fundraising campaign. The students and staff raised $552.84 to send to the Central Asia Institute to build schools for children in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Three Cups of Tea author Greg Mortenson started the program in 1996 after he spent six weeks recuperating from a failed attempt to climb Mount Everest. Because of the care he received from the village of Korphe, Pakistan, he promised to come back and build them a school — mainly for girls. A total of 161 schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan have been built with the program’s assistance. For more information, phone Darlene Clemens at 360-457-6551 or e-mail

From left are Hamilton teacher Lindsey Wheeler, First Federal employee Michelle Weber, Hamilton students Ellie Engel and Luke Angevine, and Darlene Clemens, coordinator for the Port Angeles “Pennies for Peace” Program.

Christmas Eve eats SEQUIM — Hardy’s Market, 10200 Old Olympic Highway, will hold a free Christmas Eve dinner starting at 11 a.m. Friday. “We will start serving at 11 a.m. until we run out of food,” owner Randy DuPont said. “This is to thank all our customers for supporting our store, and everyone is welcome.”

For more information, phone 360-582-0240.

Free meal slated SEQUIM — A free community dinner will be served at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave., at 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 30. This month’s meal includes beef stew, vegetables, salad, dessert and beverages.



Forks, LaPush


Sterling Savings Bank employees, from left, Rick Budd, Carol Miles and Matt Olfson present a $2,500 donation to Quileute Tribal Chairwoman Anna Rose Counsell-Geyer for the annual Cherish Our Children holiday gift program. The Quileute Housing Authority and the Forks Santa’s Workshop program will use the money to buy gifts for children in Forks and LaPush. Homework help will be available, and tentative plans call for a singalong after dinner. The church offers the community dinners the last Thursday of each month. Reservations are

requested to ensure enough food is prepared. Reservations may be made by phoning the church at 360-683-5367 between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. the Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday before the din-

ner, or by e-mailing and including the names of those attending. No one unable to make a reservation will be turned away. Peninsula Daily News

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add sugar and shal-

lots; cook until caramelized, about 15 minutes. Add salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Bring 6 quarts of lightly salted water to a boil in a stockpot. Add linguine and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain, reserving 2 cups of cooking water, and return to pan. Scrape shallots and oil into pan; toss until linguine is well coated. At serving time, gently warm linguine; fold in arugula, parsley and a little cooking water. The heat will wilt the greens. Add bread bits and cheese, folding until evenly distributed throughout the pasta.

Christmas comes to Seaport Landing The canes may be wood, not peppermint, and the white angel hair is still on the original owners, but at Seaport Landing, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. The big tree in the lobby is decorated with white porcelain orbs and red-feathered cardinals. More trees, dusted with faux snow, adorn the mezzanine balcony, hung with white lights. The mantels above the fireplaces are decked with greenery and ornaments, forming the perfect backdrop for a family Christmas photo. The larger fireplace is flanked by a lineup of Old World St. Nicholas figures, the tallest, at 4 feet, in white robes and peaked hat. All would entrance small children, who are welcome to visit the retirement community on Hancock Street. Outside the front door are more trees and lights. “This is the first year we put lights on the roof,” said Falan Ferguson. Ferguson is the office manager at Seaport Landing, where Christmas runs the whole week.

A week of Christmas On Sunday, residents were treated to a concert by John Swearingin, who sang carols and Christian music. Swearingin is a caregiver at the Landing. “Everyone does something for the residents,” Ferguson said. “We are a big family.” On Monday, the family extended to local pianist Nan Toby Tyrrell, who played Christmas carols and songs. Tyrrell, who notes the irony of “the Jewish girl doing Christmas carols,” spends the weeks before Christmas playing at nursing homes, retirement centers and other venues. For the Seaport residents, she played all the standards, both religious and secular, from “O Holy Night” to “Jingle Bells.” Afterward, Gene Mika, who is from California, said her favorite is “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” For Grace Marshall, it’s “Silent Night.”

port townsend Neighbor “I used to sing it,” MarJackson shall said. “It brings back memories.” That’s because Marshall was the music director of the Lutheran church in Almont, N.D., where Christmas was always white and everyone went to church for the candlelight service on Christmas Eve.


Rain, not snow On Monday, however, raindrops danced in the puddles outside the windows as the familiar melodies rang out under Tyrrell’s hands. Tyrrell prefers the old carols in minor keys — “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel,” “We Three Kings.” As the notes poured from the piano, the chords of “The First Noel” rose into the air, the words a reminder that it doesn’t really matter where you are on a cold winter’s night and hear the angels sing, “Born is the King of Israel.” On Tuesday, Tom Sass, the executive director of Seaport Landing, made his debut performance at a Christmas concert. Sass, who plays the piano and sings, was joined by Cheryl Torres, the new activity director, who sings. There will be a Christmas Eve service at the Landing at 2:30 p.m. and a service on Christmas Day at 1:30 p.m., when families will talk about their holiday memories. And on Wednesday, Dec. 29, residents will start to ring in the new year at a party with live music by The Copycats, hors d’oeuvres and drinks. “We like to have fun here,” Ferguson said. Sass, who moved to Port Townsend from Idaho, has played

Path to top honors filled with dedication I’m impressed with the hard work, training and dedication it took for Kyle Ellis to attain the top honors at the Washington State Horsemen’s finals: the President’s Cup for all-around English horse and the Gladys Cluphf Memorial Trophy for equitation division for senior amateur exhibitors, which includes English hunt seat, stock seat and showmanship. Even after working a full day six days a week at his Port Angeles hair shop, Steppin’ Out Salon, Kyle finds the time to train and keep his horse in shape year-round — not an easy task with the inclement weather we have on the Peninsula. Kyle, 29, riding both English and Western, is one of the top amateur competitors in the state.

McPhee’s Grocery

Winning Griffiths perpetual trophies means that Kyle has attended at least 20 WSH shows. “I love going out to shows because I meet new people and friends to hang out with, which makes showing really fun,” he said. “I give credit to my trainers at JusWen Farms and my parents [Tom and Sherrie Ellis] for being so helpful and supportive.” Among his other WSH awards for 2010: ■  Coat with WSH emblem for all-around second in state. ■  First place in noncolor English; bridle path hack hunter type, senior exhibitor, 18 and older; road hack; showmanship in hand, 18 to 30 years old;
