Port Angeles-Sequim-West End

PT arrest after ‘huge’ mail theft Man suspected of stealing checks, creating phony driver’s licenses BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — A man police said operated an extensive identity- and mail-theft operation across the region was in custody Wednesday as authorities sorted through some 1,000 pounds of stolen mail that was discovered in his Port Townsend apartment and his car Tuesday. Adam Justin Lysiak, 38, remained in custody in the Jefferson County jail Wednesday on $250,000 bail after his arrest for investigation of identity theft and possession of stolen property.

His first court appearance was Wednesday. He will be formally charged in Jefferson County Superior Court at 8:30 a.m. Friday. “This is huge,” said Port Townsend Police Officer Luke Bogues. “Since the arrest, we are getting more reports about the bad checks he has passed.” No link has been found so far with Clallam County. Lysiak eventually could be charged with more than 100 felonies, since each 10 pieces of mail potentially could be the basis for

two Class C felonies: theft of mail and possession of stolen mail, Bogues said. And that doesn’t include potential charges of forgery, pass- Lysiak ing bad checks and using stolen cards, he added. Bogues said police believe Lysiak traveled nightly through Jefferson County and neighboring counties to steal mail, and used the mail to create fake identities, forge identification cards, pass bad checks and use stolen cards. “The scope of Lysiak’s fraud scheme was the largest yet investigated by the Port Townsend police,” Bogues said.


Officers and a U.S. Postal Service inspector, Matthew Rintoul, have been going through plastic bags of confiscated mail, Bogues said. So far, the stolen mail appears to be from Jefferson and Kitsap counties, he said.

No mail from Clallam As of Wednesday, no mail had been found from Clallam County, Bogues said. “Down the road, there might be a link, but now, we don’t have one,” he said. Bogues said there was no apparent connection to a Jan. 30 case in which Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies found Sequim mail in an unoccupied car at Diamond Point that had been linked to Jefferson County burglaries.

Port Townsend police were assisted in arresting Lysiak by the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office, the Port Angeles and Sequim police departments, the U.S. Marshal’s Service, the Department of Corrections and Olympic National Park. That was because the state had a warrant for Lysiak for escaping community custody in Federal Way, Bogues said. A warrant sweep in Port Angeles saw officers joining the Corrections officer in responding. Officers Tuesday found more than 1,000 pounds of mail — along with computers, printers and other evidence — in a search of Lysiak’s apartment in the 1500 block of Sherman Street, Bogues said.

SEQUIM –– Seventeen new buses will be added to the school district’s fleet and current programs maintained after voters across the district Tuesday night gave two-thirds approval to $24.8 million in property tax levies. “I think this shows an incredible amount of support from an incredible community,” Superintendent Kelly Shea said, citing the work of Citizens for Sequim Schools, which mounted a campaign to garner support. The four-year maintenance-and-operations levy will provide $5.8 million from 2014 to 2017, and the onetime bus-replacement levy will provide $1.6 million.

Called critical to maintaining services Business Director Brian Lewis said the maintenance levy is critical to maintaining services in the $25.7 million annual budget. More than half the funds will be used to pay teacher salaries. “We do have a couple of curriculum needs we were holding off on,” Lewis said. Updated math programs for each of the district’s two elementary schools will cost approximately $600,000, he said. Lewis said the district plans to order eight buses in June 2014 after first-half propertytax payments are collected, and they should be delivered that following December. TURN TO SEQUIM/A4

FORKS — Quillayute Valley School District officials plan traffic-safety upgrades, track resurfacing, repairs and equipment replacement now that voters have approved a four-year property tax levy. A replacement maintenance-and-operations levy passed Tuesday by a 2-to-1 margin, with 663 votes, or 67.93 percent, for, to 313, or 32.07 percent, against. Only a simple majority was needed for passage. Passage not only provides the district with operating funds, but it also means the district can collect an additional

$2 million a year in levy equalization funds from the state. The levy will generate $628,000 annually, which has been earmarked for multiple projects, from 2014 through 2017. “The highest priority is safety,” Superintendent Diana Reaume said Wednesday. The district plans to add safety upgrades to crosswalks and sidewalks on South Elderberry Avenue, near the entrance to Forks Elementary School. The use of “smart boards” — electronic interactive blackboards — at the newly built Forks High School addition has been so successful, Reaume said, that the district will upgrade the electrical systems and install a few each year in classrooms at Forks Middle and Forks Elementary 14706106

Continuing expenses funded by the levy include funding painting and cleaning supplies, minor repairs to buildings and school properties, and the replacement of textbooks and classroom supplies.

Paperback covers commissioned for Harry Potter series THE HARRY POTTER books are getting a makeover. Scholastic Inc. announced Wednesday that new covers have been commissioned for U.S. trade paperback editions of J.K. Rowling’s blockbuster series. The first new cover, for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, replaces Mary GrandPre’s iconic sandy-colored design of Harry in flight with a purplish-blue street setting by graphic novelist Kazu Kibuishi. The GrandPre illustrations still will be used for hardcovers and mass market paperbacks. The new edition of Sorcerer’s Stone is scheduled for September, the 15th anniversary of Potter’s debut in the U.S. The British editions are published by Bloomsbury. They have long had separate designs from the U.S. versions.


The cover for the U.S. trade Deal mulled in stalking case paperback editions of J.K. Rowling’s A Canadian actress accused of stalking blockbuster Harry Potter series. Alec Baldwin is considering a plea deal. Genevieve Sabourin appeared Wednesday in a Manhattan court. The case was adjourned until Thursday as she and prosecutors try to hammer out a deal. Sabourin lives in Quebec and has acted in television and film. She and Baldwin met on the set of the 2002 sci-fi comedy “The Adventures of Pluto Nash.” He had a cameo, and she

was a publicist. Baldwin said they had dinner together in 2010. Police originally arrested Sabourin after authorities said she had implored Baldwin to see and to marry her in emails sent only days after he became engaged to yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas. Baldwin and his now-wife are expecting their first child together.


_________ JOHN ALLEMAN, 52, the unofficial spokesman for the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas, has died of a heart attack. He was the second unpaid mascot to die in the past two years. Mr. Alleman suffered the attack while waiting at a bus stop in front of the diner last week.

He was taken off life support Monday, the Las Vegas Sun reported. The medically themed diner is famous for its huge hamburgers, extra-fat milkshakes and fries cooked in lard. It uses the tagline: “Taste worth dying for.” Owner Jon Basso told the Sun that Mr. Alleman came to the restaurant daily and encouraged passing tourists to try its calorieladen offerings. “He never missed a day, even on Christmas,” Basso said. “People just loved him. He connected with people in a real way.” Basso said Mr. Alleman, weighed about 180 pounds and that his death showed that heart attacks can happen to anyone. The ominously named diner features tongue-incheek health warnings and casts customers as patients. Eaters are given surgical gowns as they choose from a calorically extravagant menu.

A3 Briefly: Nation Carnival cancels 12 more cruises on troubled ship HOUSTON — Carnival Cruise Lines has canceled a dozen more planned voyages aboard the Triumph and acknowledged that the crippled ship had been plagued by other mechanical problems in the weeks before it was left powerless in the Gulf of Mexico by an engine-room fire. The company’s announcement on Wednesday came as the Triumph was being towed to a port in Mobile, Ala., with more than 4,000 people onboard, some of whom have complained to relatives that conditions on the ship are dismal and that they have limited access to food and bathrooms. The ship will be idle through April. Two other cruises were called off after Sunday’s fire. Debbi Smedley, a passenger on a recent Triumph cruise, said the ship had trouble Jan. 28 as it was preparing to leave Galveston, Texas. Hours before the scheduled departure time, she received an email from Carnival stating the vessel would leave late because of a propulsion problem. Passengers were asked to arrive two hours later than originally scheduled.

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. — Police scoured mountain peaks for days, using everything from bloodhounds to high-tech helicopters in their manhunt for a revenge-seeking ex-cop. They had no idea he was hiding among them, possibly holed up in a vacation cabin across the street from their command post. It was there that Christopher Dorner may have taken refuge last Thursday, four days after beginning a deadly rampage that would claim four lives. The search ended Tuesday when a man believed to be Dorner stole two cars, barricaded himself in another vacant cabin miles away and mounted a last stand in a furious shootout in which he killed one sheriff’s deputy and wounded another before the building erupted in flames. He never emerged, and hours later, a charred body was found in the basement of the burned cabin along with a wallet and personal items, including a California driver’s license with the name Christopher Dorner, an official briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press. The coroner’s office is studying the remains to positively determine the identity.

Details remain in place LAPD Lt. Andrew Neiman said Wednesday that the protective details guarding possible Dorner targets will remain in place until the remains are positively identified. Dorner, 33, had said in a lengthy rant that police believe he posted on Facebook that he expected to die in one final, violent confrontation with police. The apparent end came in the same mountain range where his trail went cold six days earlier, when his burning pickup truck

Fo o t p r i n t s Dorner led away from the truck. Deputies searched door-to-door in the city of Big Bear Lake and then, despite a blinding snowstorm, SWAT teams focused on hundreds of vacant cabins. Hours after police announced Tuesday they had fielded more than 1,000 tips, word came that a man matching Dorner’s description had tied up two people in a Big Bear Lake cabin, stole their car and fled. Jay Hylton told KABC-TV that they were two of his relatives, a mother and daughter pair of housekeepers, who weren’t hurt. Afterward, Dorner fled in a purple Nissan, the Los Angeles Times reported. One maid eventually broke free and phoned 9-1-1, the newspaper said. Game wardens from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife who were part of the

search detail spotted the Nissan and gave chase, department spokesman Lt. Patrick Foy said. The driver looked like Dorner. They lost the car, but two other Fish and Wildlife patrols turned up the road a short time later, when a white pickup truck sped erratically toward them. Dorner, who allegedly stole the pickup truck at gunpoint after crashing the first car, rolled down a window and opened fire on the wardens, striking their truck. One of the wardens shot at the suspect as he rounded a curve. The stolen pickup careened off the road and crashed in a snow bank. The driver then ran to the cabin where he barricaded himself and got in a shootout with San Bernardino County deputies and other officers, two of whom were shot, one fatally. A SWAT team used an armored vehicle to break out the cabin windows. The officers then lobbed tear gas canisters into the cabin and blasted a message over a loudspeaker: “Surrender or come out.” The armored vehicle then tore down the cabin’s four walls. A single shot was heard inside before the cabin was engulfed in flames, the law enforcement official told The Associated Press.

GOP: Obama speech divisive Republicans: Just liberal boilerplate THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Republicans charged Wednesday that President Barack Obama delivered a State of the Union address studded with tired liberal notions and campaign-style hostility, and said the speech did little to ease partisan tensions over issues like gigantic budget deficits.

‘Retread of lip service’ “An opportunity to bring together the country instead became another retread of lip service and liberalism,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said on the chamber floor, arguing that the president’s speech offered little more than

“gimmicks and tax hikes.” “Last night’s speech was a pedestrian liberal boilerplate that any Democratic lawmaker could have given at any time in recent history,” McConnell said. Obama used his speech Tuesday night to call for action on a sweeping agenda that included the economy, guns, immigration, taxes and climate change. His remarks seemed to have little persuasive effect on Republicans, who control the House and hold enough votes to stall legislation in the Senate and believe that government helps best by getting out of the way. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, the GOP’s vice presidential candidate last fall, said Wednesday that Obama’s

leadership style stands in the way of bipartisan efforts to resolve problems like the ballooning deficit. “He seems to Ryan always be in campaign mode, where he treats people in the other party as enemies rather than partners,” the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview on “CBS This Morning.” The morning-after comments came as Obama got ready to take off on a three-state trip, starting in North Carolina, to sell voters on the programs he outlined. In the formal Republican response to Obama’s address, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said:“More government isn’t going to help you get ahead. It’s going to hold you back. ”

A SAUDI ARABIA air force sergeant stood in shackles Wednesday in a Nevada courtroom and pleaded not guilty to abducting and raping a 13-year-old boy at a Las Vegas Strip hotel on New Year’s Eve. Mazen Alotaibi, 23, acknowledged that he understood the nine felony charges that could put him in a Nevada prison for the rest of his life.

Lawmakers alter bill on gun control Private-sales records wouldn’t be retained BY MIKE BAKER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OLYMPIA — Lawmakers seeking to expand background checks for gun sales have made a series of changes to their proposal to ease the concerns of gun owners. Under a revised bill considered during a committee hearing Wednesday, lawmakers said agencies that conduct background checks would have to destroy records of the search once it’s complete. Opponents of the bill had expressed concern that the transaction records essentially would provide a foundation for a registry of gun owners. Rep. Jamie Pedersen, D-Seattle, said he received hundreds of emails related to the bill. Some were generic emails or form letters, but he said others included reasonable suggestions. “There are quite a few people who were very thoughtful,” Pedersen said. “Those comments resulted in the changes.” The new bill also allows private parties to bypass the background check if the buyer already has a concealed-pistol license. People involved in a transaction also can skip the background check if a request for such information goes unanswered for three days, responding to concerns that the federal system could be unavailable for periods of time. The new measure also removes a provision that allowed a state agency to request that more detailed information be submitted

as part of the backgroundcheck process. At its core, the bill is designed to require background checks for private gun transactions. People already have to undergo a background check if they purchase a weapon from a federally licensed firearms dealer, but supporters of the measure are concerned that criminals and mentally ill people can simply seek out a private transaction in order to acquire weapons. Opponents, however, said criminals still will find ways to get guns.

NRA concerns Despite the changes, Brian Judy, the Washington state liaison for the National Rifle Association, said he still had concerns about the bill. He believes local law enforcement would be unable to conduct background checks and that gun dealers may lose money on the proposed $20 fee for conducting the checks, essentially freezing private gun transactions. He argued that it would disproportionately impact law-abiding citizens. “This is a misdirected program,” Judy said. “It’s not going to work.” House lawmakers are looking to move ahead with the measure next week. It has support on the committee from Republican Rep. Mike Hope, a Seattle police officer previously supported by the NRA. The Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs also supports the idea.

County counted 948 ballots, and Jefferson County counted 28 ballots. One envelope was empty, said Clallam County Auditor Patty Rosand on Wednesday morning. Another 49 ballots were received Wednesday in Clallam County for a total of 997 ballots received in the county, Rosand said. Rosand said she expects most of those ballots still in the mail system to arrive this week. They will be counted Friday. “By Friday, it will pretty much be done” she said.

The final vote count for straggling ballots that arrive late from overseas and military voters will take place just before the election is certified Feb. 26. An additional five ballots that arrived Wednesday brought the number to 33 in Jefferson County. In Jefferson County, the next ballot count will be Feb. 26, Jefferson Auditor Donna Eldridge said.

Sequim: Buses CONTINUED FROM A1 Transportation Supervisor Jeff Gossage said two buses date back to 1988. An additional nine buses will be ordered after second-half property taxes are collected in November 2014. They will arrive in time for the start of the 2015 school year. Gossage said the new buses will give the district a “standardized” fleet of buses that will result in reduced costs for parts and maintenance.

Estimated levy rate The estimated levy rate from the Assessor’s Office for the maintenance-andoperations levy is $1.611 per $1,000 of assessed value in 2014, $1.611 in 2015, $1.608 in 2016 and $1.607 in 2017. The transportation levy is an estimated rate of 44 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. The upcoming expiration of a 1998 construction bond means that even with these levies, the district’s total tax rate charged to property owners is expected to go down.

This year, the total school district tax rate is $2.27 per $1,000 of assessed property valuation. Next year, it will be $2.18 per $1,000 assessed value. Barring another proposition from the district, property owners will be taxed for only the operations levy from 2015 through 2017.

Voter turnout Auditors in both Clallam and Jefferson counties counted Tuesday night 10,432, or 47.8 percent, of the 21,790 ballots mailed to district voters. Clallam County counted 10,164, or 47.2 percent, of 21,522 ballots. Jefferson counted 153 of its 268 mailed ballots to Gardiner residents, a turnout of 57.1 percent. Since only a simple majority is required to pass, remaining ballots aren’t enough to change outcomes. Clallam County Auditor Patty Rosand said her office received 263 ballots from Sequim voters in Wednesday’s mail. Those will be added to the next count Friday, as will ballots picked up from the drop box in Sequim. Jefferson County Elections Supervisor Karen Cartmel said she received three ballots from Gardiner in Wednesday’s mail. Since the few ballots that likely will come in will not sway the election results, Cartmel said, they will not be counted until certification day, Feb. 26.

average monthly payment of $373 through TANF. To be eligible, applicants must either have a child or be pregnant and meet certain income requirements. For example, a family of three with earnings of less than $955 each month would be eligible for cash assistance from TANF. Washington is among nearly two dozen states that have introduced bills this year to require some form of drug testing for public assistance recipients, according to Rochelle Finzel with the National Conference of State Legislatures.


Clallam agrees to buy advisory setup with city BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Clallam County has inked an interlocal agreement with the city to purchase a new emergency-notification system. The Everbridge system will replace 21st Century, the technology being used at the city-run Peninsula Communications 9-1-1 dispatch center. Under the agreement that commissioners approved Tuesday, the county will administer the one-year contract, and the city will cover the $18,000 maximum cost. The city will pay half the cost in subsequent years, with the various agencies that use the system supplying the rest.

Needed upgrade “This started at the PenCom Advisory Committee as a discussion to upgrade the notification system that’s currently in use by law enforcement,” said Alice Hoffman, Clallam County Sheriff ’s Office chief civil deputy. “It was determined that it was costly and needed to

OLYMPIA — A measure modeled on a new Utah law would add a potential drugtesting requirement to those seeking family welfare benefits in Washington state but would allow them to continue receiving money while seeking treatment as long as they stay drug-free. The bill will have its first public hearing before a Senate committee today. It would require applicants whom caseworkers have determined have a drug problem to undergo a drug test and participate in a treatment program to receive the monthly cash grant that is part of the state’s temporary assistance for needy families program, known as TANF. “I think taxpayers want to make darn sure the money is going for groceries for the kids and not for dope,” said Sen. Don Benton, a Republican from Vancouver who is sponsoring the Senate bill. “I think the taxpayers have a right to confirm that.” Though the numbers vary year by year, as of June, between 121,000 and 134,000 people received an

“You can put cellphone numbers in, you can put your office phone number in — all of that.” STEVE ROMBERG PenCom manager be upgraded.” PenCom Manager Steve Romberg said the Everbridge system is “so much more functional” because people can sign up with any telephone number to receive alerts. “You can put cellphone numbers in, you can put your office phone number in — all of that,” Romberg told commissioners.

Unlimited use “With the current system, it’s just the data we get from CenturyLink, which is just landline phones. And we all know that landlines are really going away,” Romberg said. Another advantage is the unlimited use. “We pay the $18,000 a year, and that is it,” Romberg said. PenCom, a division of the Port Angeles Police Department, has interlocal agreements with 17 agencies for which it dispatches.

Legal challenges Seven states have such laws on the books, but some that have passed blanket welfare drug-testing laws have faced legal challenges amid constitutional concerns. Florida passed a welfare drug-testing program in 2011, but it’s on hold after a challenge from the American Civil Liberties Union. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is reviewing the case. The implementation of a law passed by Georgia last

can continue receiving benefits while seeking treatment. Utah’s law took effect in August. Currently, the state Department of Social and Health Services determines during a face-to-face interview whether an applicant has a drug problem. If so, the applicant is given a referral they must attend where a determination on treatment is decided, said Babs Roberts, director of the DSHS community services division. If the applicant fails to follow up with the referral or treatment plan, they receive reduced benefits for up to four months, during which time case managers continue to work with them. If they still don’t comply after four months, their benefits are terminated. Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee opposes the measure, as does the state ACLU. Because Angel said her bill would not receive a hearing in the Democratic-controlled House, Benton said he offered to introduce it in the Senate, which is controlled by a Republican-leaning majority coalition that includes two Democrats.

year also is on hold, with officials there saying they’re awaiting the outcome of the Florida case. In 1999, a drug-testing program in Michigan was halted after five weeks and eventually ended with an appeals court ruling it was unconstitutional. Additional states require individuals with felony drug convictions to comply with drug-testing requirements to be eligible for assistance. Others, including Washington state, have an interview screening process that does not include a drug test, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Republican Rep. Jan Angel of Port Orchard has introduced a companion bill in the House. She said that because of the constitutional issues raised in other states, she modeled her bill on the measure approved last year in Utah, which requires only those shown through a questionnaire to have a “reasonable likelihood” that they’re using drugs to take a drug test. As in the Washington state measure, applicants in Utah who fail the drug test

Obama recycles old, failed ideas PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA’S approach to so-called “climate change” appears to include recycling old ideas. In his State of the Union Cal address, the president recy- Thomas cled the idea of spending more on education, though we are still getting unsatisfactory results — a fact he inadvertently acknowledged by saying we’re not keeping up with other countries in science and math. He maintained there are tens of thousands of jobs available, but companies can’t fill them because public schools aren’t teaching students what they need to know. We spend huge sums on education already, so money and achievement must not be related. Infrastructure? We’ve heard that before, too. Why is nothing ever fixed

with all the money that’s been spent the past four years? Because it’s about maintaining union jobs, not creating new jobs that produce products and services and grow small businesses. The president mentioned the coming sequester, but Douglas Elmendorf, the director of the Congressional Budget Office, told the Senate’s Committee on the Budget that he can’t score the proposal to replace the sequester because he hasn’t yet seen “a specific proposal.” The sequester was the president’s idea, though he now suggests it came from Congress. The House has proposed targeted spending cuts that protect defense. Those proposals have gone nowhere in the Senate. The president spoke of “the basic bargain that built this country — the idea that if you work hard and meet your responsibilities, you can get ahead.” Yes, and if you do, you will be taxed at ever-increasing rates, labeled rich and powerful, and accused of not doing your fair share.

What would be fair is for government to stop spending more than it takes in. The president claimed his national health insurance is driving down medical costs. It’s actually the reverse. ABC News reported on the conclusion of the nonpartisan Health Care Institute: “Spending on health care rose 4.6 percent in 2011 — up $4,500 per person, on average.” The network also noted a Kaiser Family Foundation report that said, “Health insurance premiums for individuals and families also climbed year-over-year, up 3 percent ($186) on average for an individual and 4 percent ($672) on average for a family.” The Washington Times reported: “President Obama’s health care law will push 7 million people out of their job-based insurance coverage — nearly twice the previous estimate, according to the latest estimates from the Congressional Budget Office.” The president spoke of reducing America’s nuclear arsenal at a time when Iran and North

Peninsula Voices

Korea are building theirs and threatening nuclear attack. This is part of the failed ideology he has applied to the Middle East, which says that if we will just be nice to our enemies, they will be nice to us. The president promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. Instead, he has deepened our deficit and national debt. Jobs? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, since Obama took office in 2009, 8.5 million Americans have given up looking for work. Those lucky enough to find work often receive very low pay. The president’s proposed increase in the minimum wage won’t help create new jobs. If it passes, which it won’t in the House, it will more than likely eliminate new hires. There are so many more recycled ideas, but not enough space here to list them all. Sen. Marco Rubio, Republican of Florida, gave one of the better and more substantive responses to a State of the Union address. Rubio sought to identify with


the common man, noting his Florida home is among middleclass people. He retold his story as the son of immigrant parents and made the case for smaller government, rewarding initiative entrepreneurship and improving education through school choice. The state of the union would be much better if government were smaller and if people were allowed to keep and spend more of their hard-earned money. President Obama takes the liberal view, Rubio the conservative view. The debate in the next two elections will be between the party that wants to empower government and the party of individual empowerment, between recycling old and failed ideas and trying new ones.

Climate protesters at Obama’s door FOR THE FIRST time in its 120-year history, the Sierra Club engaged in civil disobedience, the day after President Barack Obama gave his 2013 State of the Union address. The group joined scores of Amy others protestGoodman ing the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, which awaits a permitting decision from the Obama administration. The president made significant pledges to address the growing threat of climate change in his Tuesday night speech. But it will take more than words to save the planet from human-induced climate disruption, and a growing, diverse movement is directing its focus on the White House to demand meaningful action. The Keystone XL pipeline is especially controversial because it will allow the exploitation of Canadian tar sands, considered the dirtiest oil source on the planet. One of the leading voices rais-

ing alarm about climate change, James Hansen, the director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, wrote of the tar sands in The New York Times last year: “If Canada proceeds and we do nothing, it will be game over for the climate.” New research by nonprofit Oil Change International indicates that the potential tar-sands impact will be even worse than earlier believed. Because the proposed pipeline crosses the border between the U.S. and Canada, its owner, TransCanada Corp., must receive permission from the State Department. Among those arrested outside the White House was Julian Bond, former chair of the NAACP. Bond said, “The threat to our planet’s climate is both grave and urgent. . . . I am proud today to stand before my fellow citizens and declare, ‘I am willing to go to jail to stop this wrong.’ “The environmental crisis we face today demands nothing less.” Two weeks of protests at the White House in the summer of 2011 led to the arrest of 1,252 people. Later, in November, thousands

more joined to encircle 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., calling for denial of the Keystone XL permit. Days later, President Obama announced he would delay the decision until 2013, after the election. He later granted permission to build the southern leg of the pipeline, from Oklahoma through Texas. That decision sparked protests from landowners and environmentalists, including a nonviolent direct-action blockade campaign in Texas, with people chained to pipeline equipment and occupying land with tree-sits to halt construction. Early in the permit process, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she was inclined to approve the pipeline, even though the State Department’s mandatory review was incomplete. Controversy erupted when The Washington Post reported that TransCanada’s lobbyist for the pipeline in D.C., Paul Elliott, was a senior staffer on Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign. The Environmental Protection Agency, headed by Obamaappointee Lisa Jackson, had been critical of the pipeline. When Jackson resigned unex-

pectedly late last December, the New York Post reported, based on an unnamed “Jackson insider,” “She will not be the EPA head when Obama supports [Keystone] getting built.” Jackson’s spokesperson denied the allegation. Obama’s new secretary of state, John Kerry, weighed in on Keystone XL after his first official meeting with a foreign dignitary, Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird. Kerry said: “Secretary Clinton has put in place a very open and transparent process, which I am committed to seeing through. I can guarantee you that it will be fair and transparent, accountable, and we hope that we will be able to be in a position to make an announcement in the near term.” In his State of the Union address, Obama gave hope to those concerned with global warming, saying: “For the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change. . . . “We can choose to believe that superstorm Sandy and the most severe drought in decades and the worst wildfires some states have ever seen were all just a

PA lays out timeline for landfill work Summer ’14 latest start, officials say BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — City public works staff want to start work no later than summer 2014 to prevent a shoreline bluff abutting the city’s landfill from failing. If the bluff fails, at least three decades’ worth of accumulated garbage in the closed landfill will tumble into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. City officials are loath to wait more than two summers to get construction under way and are in talks with state and federal regulators to have all necessary permit applications for the multimillion-dollar landfill bluff-stabilization project submitted by May. “One difficulty with this project is the urgency of it,� City Manager Dan McKeen told a joint meeting of the City Council and Utility Advisory Committee on Tuesday. “Even with our plans right now, there’s nothing guaranteeing [bluff failure] won’t happen tomorrow.� No action was taken at Tuesday’s meeting. The bluff stands 135 feet above the Strait at the west end of 18th Street, with a relatively thin layer of dirt — as narrow as 11 feet in some places — keeping the waste from the landfill, which closed in 2007, in place.

Touring site today

Recommended option The recommended option, estimated to cost between $15 million and $20 million, would mean shifting about 350,000 cubic yards of garbage within the landfill farther away from the bluff and upgrading the existing seawall to counter erosion around and behind the structure. Bruch said she also wanted the four other options — which included completely removing the existing seawall or armoring a larger stretch of the coastline below the landfill — and their associated costs presented in abbreviated form. Herrera presented five options of varying complexity and cost at the council work session last month, with the most expensive being the complete removal of the seawall. Herrera estimated this option could cost between $30 million and $44 million because it would mean removing most, if not all, of the waste accumulated in the landfill.

Remove seawall? The seawall originally was built in 2007 to shore up another stretch of the landfill bluff that was failing. A small amount of the waste packed behind it was exposed. At the meeting, Bruch supported removing the seawall because public works staff and engineering consultants have said in the past that waves reflecting off the structure were exacerbating shoreline erosion on either side of the wall. Puntenney said the recommended option would augment the wall to help decrease that reflection and not force the city to remove all the landfill’s accumulated garbage. “[With the recommended option], we don’t have to pull out as much garbage, keeping the cost down to the citizens,� Puntenney said.

City Engineer Mike Puntenney said Wednesday that city public works staff will meet with an armada of state and federal agencies, including the state departments of Ecology and Fish and Wildlife and the federal Environmental Protection Agency, today to tour the site and receive feedback on what permits will be needed for the stabilization work.

Derby weekend is here THE OLYMPIC PENINSULA Salmon Derby is only a few days away. Blackmouth Lee fishing has continued to be Horton solid lately for those who are going out. If the weather cooperates, though, there will be no shortage of anglers on the Strait of Juan de Fuca this weekend. “Everyone’s building up for the derby this weekend,” Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-683-1950) in Sequim said. I’ve heard similar statements from people for the last few weeks. It seems most anglers are waiting for the derby before getting serious about blackmouth fishing. My guess is they have a few reasons for holding off until the derby. First, the weather hasn’t been the most pleasant. Second, nothing kick-starts the fishing desire like a $10,000 first prize, $2,000 second prize and $1,000 third prize. Even if you don’t take home one of those awards, the derby has a prize list of 44 items worth a total of $21,895 (as of Wednesday), including four mystery fish prizes worth $500 each. The event, which runs from Saturday to Monday, features 500 square miles of fishing area and five launch ramps and weigh stations (Freshwater Bay, Ediz Hook in Port Angeles, John Wayne Marina in Sequim, Gardiner and Port Townsend Boat Haven). Fees at all of the ramps will be waived for derby participants. Oh, and there also will be free barbecue meals on Saturday and Monday. Online ticket sales are no longer available, but you can purchase derby tickets through Friday at area retailers such as Swain’s General Store in Port Angeles; Brian’s Sporting Goods and More in Sequim; Four Corners Store, Fish N Hole and Westside Marine in Port Townsend; Olympic Equipment Rental (formerly Just Ask Rentals) in Port Hadlock; and Longhouse Market and Deli in Blyn. Tickets cost $40, whether you fish for one day or three days. They can also be purchased at all five launch ramps, but only on Saturday. Last year, the derby sold about 700 tickets. Dan Tatum, president of the derby’s organizer, the Gardiner Salmon Derby Association, told me a few weeks ago that he would “give anything to sell 800,” this time around. For more on the Olympic Peninsula Salmon Derby, including the prize lists and map, visit www.

Sekiu is back Now, some of you read about the huge salmon derby and groan because it means the pressure will be high. That’s understandable. You want a nice, relaxing weekend of fishing without worrying about whether or not you reel in the biggest blackmouth. Well, the eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca will be out of the question for your kind. But, yet another area is opening to salmon fishing: Sekiu (Marine Area 5). Remember good old reliable Sekiu? When the North Olympic Peninsula went dry from about the end of July to the middle of October and ruined river fishing and hunting, Sekiu had coho practically jumping into boats. I don’t know how Sekiu will do. I called some of the resorts there, and it appears they still aren’t open for the season, but I have fond memories of the good news it produced when nothing else was producing last year.

Devils open with wins Neah Bay boys and girls earn state berths BY LEE HORTON PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

JOYCE — The Neah Bay boys and girls basketball teams both defeated their Muckleshoot counterparts in the 1B Tri-District quarterfinals at Crescent High School on Tuesday night. The Red Devils boys used a trio of first-half offensive outbursts and stout defense to beat the Kings 70-45. The Red Devils, ranked second in The Associated Press 1B poll, move on to the semifinals today when they will face Evergreen Lutheran at Mount Ver-

non Christian School. Neah Bay coach Gerrad Brooks said that the Red Devils can advance far in the playoffs if they continue to play as they did Tuesday night. “We did a really good job. There’s a few things that we’re working on that we didn’t quite get, but all in all, I give [us] a B-plus,” Brooks said of the win. “If we can bring this kind of energy and that kind of execution throughout [the postseason], we’ll be really tough to beat.” Neah Bay went on its first offensive run after Muckleshoot

Playoffs took an 8-5 lead midway through the first quarter. The Red Devils held the Kings to a free throw over the next few minutes while scoring 14 of their own points. Ryan Moss gave Neah Bay a lead for good with a 3-pointer at the 3:35 mark. By the time that surge was over, the Red Devils led 19-9. Neah Bay then opened the second quarter with a 9-2 spurt, with Muckleshoot’s only basket coming when Red Devils sophomore Abraham Venske deflected a Muckleshoot pass right into the hoop. Venske also scored four points for Neah Bay during the run, both coming on fastbreak layups, one assisted by Josiah

Greene and the other by Zeke Greene. Trisdin Lozier ended the run with a 3-pointer to make it 34-19, but then the Red Devils went on another scoring streak. Venske was again heavily involved, scoring on an alley-oop from Leyton Doherty and finishing the 15-3 run with a putback with a second left in the half. In between, Tyler McCaulley converted a three-point play and plowed into the crowd chasing a loose ball when the Red Devils had a 26-point lead. Brooks singled out McCaulley’s performance, particularly the energy he played with, as one of the team’s highlights. McCaulley scored 11 points, including 2 for 4 on 3-pointers and 3 for 5 at the foul line. TURN



PT advances at Tri-District Boys team nips Blaine PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT TOWNSEND — Clutch free throws down the stretch, crisp passing and a strong fan base kept the Port Townsend boys basketball season alive. A meaningless 3-point basket from near half court with 2.8 seconds left made the score seem a lot closer than the game was at the end as the Redskins beat Blaine 43-42 in the 1A TriDistrict loser-out game Tuesday night. “We let him take the shot because we were four points ahead,” Port Townsend coach Tom Webster said about the half-court Hail Mary shot. Will O’Brien, Paul Spaltenstein and Brian LeMaster all netted crucial free throws in the final minutes and the Port Townsend defense kept the Borderites in check. “We played pretty good defense throughout the game, I thought,” Webster said. In addition, the Redskins (9-13) had strong passing from Cody Russell, LeMaster and Jacob King throughout the STEVE MULLENSKY/FOR PENINSULA DAILY NEWS game, the coach added. Blaine’s Gabe Trump (11) and Port Townsend’s Cody Russell (2) and Brian LeMaster “We moved the ball well,” (5) each get a piece of a loose ball during a loser-out 1A Tri-District game played in Webster said.

Body slam for wrestling: Cut from Olympics BY STEPHEN WILSON THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAUSANNE, Switzerland — For wrestling, this may have been the ultimate body slam: getting tossed out of the Olympic rings. The vote Tuesday by the IOC’s executive board stunned the world’s wrestlers, who see their sport as popular in many countries and steeped in history as old as the Olympics themselves. While wrestling will be included at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, it was cut from the games in 2020, which have yet to be awarded to a host city. 2004 Olympic GrecoRoman champion Khasan Baroev of Russia called the decision “mind-boggling.” “I just can’t believe it. And what sport will then be added to the Olympic program? What sport is worthy of replacing ours?” Baroev told the ITAR-Tass news agency. “Wrestling is popular in many countries — just see how the medals were distributed at the last Olympics.” American Rulan Gard-

ner, who upset three-time Russian Olympic champion Alexander Karelin at the Sydney Games in an epic gold-medal bout known as the “Miracle on the Mat,” was saddened by the decision to drop what he called “a beloved sport.” “It’s the IOC trying to change the Olympics to make it more mainstream and more viewer-friendly instead of sticking to what they founded the Olympics on,” Gardner told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from Logan, Utah. The executive board of the International Olympic Committee reviewed the 26 sports on its summer program in order to remove one of them so it could add one later this year. It decided to cut wrestling and keep modern pentathlon — a sport that combines fencing, horse riding, swimming, running and shooting — and was considered to be the most likely to be dropped. The board voted after reviewing a report by the IOC program commission report that analyzed 39 criteria, including TV ratings, ticket sales, anti-doping pol-

PA coach ‘astonished’ by wrestling ruling THE DECISION BY the International Olympic Committee executive board to drop wrestling from the Olympics blindsided those heavily involved in the sport. “It’s just astonishing, honestly,” Port Angeles wrestling coach Erik Gonzales told the Peninsula Daily News this week. “I think it caught all of us in the wrestling community off-guard. In fact, I know it did.” Besides coaching the Roughriders and heading up the Olympic Mountain Wrestling Club, Gonzalez stays connected with many of the coun-

icy and global participation and popularity. With no official rankings or recommendations contained in the report, the final

try’s wrestling organizations. Prior to this week’s announcement that wrestling would be gone by the 2020 Summer Olympics, Gonzalez said there weren’t any previous discussions about the potential for wrestling’s elimination. Now begins the fight to save the sport’s place in the Olympics. “I am confident that now that the wrestling community is aware, we can flex our collective muscles,” Gonzalez said. “I like our chances of getting it reinstated.” Gonzalez doesn’t believe the Olympic com-

decision by the 15-member board was also subject to political, emotional and sentimental factors. “This is a process of

mittee’s decision will negatively impact the popularity of the sport on the North Olympic Peninsula. “Certainly not in the short-term,” he said. “We just have to try to control what we can control,” which he added means making all of the programs in the area as successful as possible. Gonzalez noted that the Olympic committee’s decision isn’t the first setback for wrestling, which has seen college wrestling programs dropped throughout the nation, including at his alma mater, Valparaiso. Lee Horton

renewing and renovating the program for the Olympics,” IOC spokesman Mark Adams said. “In the view of the execu-

tive board, this was the best program for the Olympic Games in 2020. It’s not a case of what’s wrong with wrestling; it is what’s right with the 25 core sports.” According to IOC documents obtained by the AP, wrestling ranked “low” in several of the technical criteria, including popularity with the public at the London Games — just below 5 on a scale of 10. Wrestling sold 113,851 tickets in London out of 116,854 available. Wrestling also ranked “low” in global TV audience with a maximum of 58.5 million viewers and an average of 23 million, the documents show. Internet hits and press coverage were also ranked as low. NBC, which televises the Olympics in the U.S., declined comment. The IOC also noted that FILA — the international wrestling federation — has no athletes on its decisionmaking bodies, no women’s commission, no ethics rules for technical officials and no medical official on its executive board.

Playoffs: Neah Bay teams win Preps: Quilcene CONTINUED FROM B1


Moss led the Red Devils with 13 points. He went 7 for 9 at the free-throw line and 2 for 3 from 3-point range. Venske and Josiah Greene scored 12 points apiece, and John Reamer scored 10. Doherty dished out four assists and contributed six points. Josiah Greene had a team-high 11 rebounds. He and Zeke Greene were credited with leading the Red Devils defense that held Muckleshoot to 14 combined points in the second and third quarters. “Zeke Greene is always a shutdown defender. I mean, we can put him and Josiah basically on anybody and I guarantee you it’s going to be a long night,” Brooks said. Zeke Greene had four points, four rebounds and two steals. Although a 65-28 deficit after three quarters was too much to overcome, the Kings dominated the fourth quarter. Reamer opened the quarter with a 3-pointer, and Neah Bay didn’t score again until Chris Martinez hooked up with Devin Royster with less than 20 seconds left. In between, Muckleshoot scored 17 unanswered points, with Josh Cline scoring a bulk of those. Brooks said the fivepoint fourth quarter was no cause for alarm. “We were working some guys that need to come along,” he said. “It’s important to our program that everybody gets experience. “So, when we get up on good leads, I like to make sure that we get guys in those situations, those pressure situations, so they get comfortable with it, so our rotation never slows down in critical moments.” Such experience breeds depth, and depth came in handy Tuesday night and will be crucial to the Red Devils (15-1) throughout the postseason. “I think we played great today,” McCaulley said. “I liked the hustle, we pushed the ball really well, and our defense was outstanding. “We just got to keep playing D, and push the ball, and just wear teams out.” Evergreen Lutheran (119) made it to the semifinals by upsetting Lummi on Tuesday, 40-37.

Blaine (8-14) took an early five-point lead but key 3-point shots by Spaltenstein, O’Brien and Russell rallied the Redskins. “Each hit a 3 and that gave us a big lift against their zone,” Webster said. But the biggest lift of the night came from the packed gym, according to Webster. “Our community came out to support us,” he said. “That really helped us get the win. “Our fans and our girls basketball team were there to support us. “Maybe we can keep this thing going.” The No. 9-seeded Redskins now take on eighthseeded Mount Baker today in another loser-out game at Mountlake Terrace High School. The game starts at 4:30 p.m. Today’s winner moves on to play No. 4-seeded Cascade Christian in a loserout, winner-to-regionals game Saturday at Lynnwood High School. “There are some tough teams over there,” Webster said about the Tri-District tournament. “We need to play better over there to keep going.” The Redskins need to improve on their 5 of 14 free-throw shooting against Blaine to keep advancing, Webster said. Against Blaine, Spaltenstein sparked the Redskins with 14 points while Russell swished in 12 and LeMaster had eight.

Girls Basketball Neah Bay 59, Muckleshoot 43

JOYCE — The Red Devils survived an atypical start Tuesday to advance to the 1B Tri-District semifinals, where they will have a big-time matchup with Tulalip Heritage. “Coming into this game, we didn’t know anything about Muckleshoot,” Neah Bay coach Nate Tyler said. “They gave us problems in the first half; we didn’t really make the necessary adjustments to counter the problems. “But the second half, that was a different story. We made all the proper adjustments on offense and defense.” The Red Devils’ two post players, Faye Chartraw and Blaire Hill, both put in a solid half each. Chartraw scored 14 points and had 10 rebounds, Neay Bay 70, Muckleshoot 45 four coming off the offensive glass, doing most of her Muckleshoot 14 8 6 17— 45 Neah Bay 25 24 16 5— 70 damage in the opening half. Individual scoring She also had four blocks. Muckleshoot (45) Cline 21, Rodarte 1, Esparza 17, Ortiz 2, Molina Hill came off the bench 2, Lozier 9, Starr 2. to score eight points and Neah Bay (70) Venske 12, J. Greene 12, Z. Greene 4, Doherty 6, pull down six boards.

“One of our players that stepped up was Blaire Hill in that second half,” Tyler said. “[She was] taking care of business down low. I was pretty happy with her play.” Cierra Moss led Neah Bay with 23 points, and also had 10 rebounds and two steals. “Cierra, she’s pretty dependable, every single night,” Tyler said. “She’s our floor general, probably one of the better point guards Neah Bay’s had in quite a few years.” Kaela Tyler also scored in double figures for the Red Devils with 11 points to go along with four steals. For Muckleshoot, Olivia Ho led all scorers with 24 points, 10 of which came at the free-throw line. The Red Devils (14-1) won’t be as unfamiliar with their next opponent, Tulalip Heritage (19-2), which they play this afternoon at Mount Vernon Christian School. They are well aware the Hawks’ star players, Katia Brown and Adiya JonesSmith. Especially Brown. Tyler said Brown went to school in Neah Bay before transferring to Tulalip last

fall to be closer to her mother, Justina Brown, the Hawks’ head coach. “Tulalip’s a good team. They know us and we know them. It’s just a matter of who wants it most between the two of us,” Tyler said. “I think [knowing Tulalip players] helps our girls. It motivates them; our girls want the bragging rights.” Tyler said Tuesday’s game with Muckleshoot was a good primer on the competition Neah Bay will face this postseason, especially after its recent success. “We’ve got a target on our backs,” Tyler said. “We’ve been ranked No. 3 in the state for the last couple weeks. We have everything to lose, and the other teams don’t have anything to lose when they face us. “So, we’ve definitely got to get used to that. If we’re No. 3, we’ve got to play like No. 3 from here on out.”

Girls Basketball Muckleshoot 54, Quilcene 20 QUILCENE — The Rangers concluded their season with the loss to Muckleshoot last week. “Our effort against Muckleshoot was not a good reflection of our team’s talents and abilities,” Quilcene coach Briana Weller said. “I had hoped the girls would finish strong in their last game of the season, and for whatever reason we just didn’t get a solid team effort. “Even though we did not have a good showing against Muckleshoot, I am proud of the girls and their many accomplishments this season. “We have begun to chisel out a solid program and now have a focused group of girls who want to play basketball and be competitive. “We were by far the youngest team in our 1B Sea-Tac League this year with three freshmen and four 8th graders. “We did win four games this season and have to be proud of that.” Overall, the Rangers were 4-16 on the season, 2-16 in league play. “I am so proud of these girls and their accomplishments this year as players and individuals. “Our program here at Quilcene will provide the Lady Rangers with open gyms this summer and opportunities for a basketball camp. “These girls want to improve and are willing to put in the time and effort. I am thrilled and will do everything I can to help these girls be successful in and out of the gym.”

Comcast-NBCUniversal deal: Bullish on cable TV GE stake bought for $16.7 billion THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — Comcast’s $16.7 billion deal to buy the remaining half of NBCUniversal ahead of schedule represents a vote of confidence in the future of TV, even as the growth of Internet video reshapes the entertainment landscape. The decision was driven largely by Comcast Corp.’s belief that it would pay substantially more for General Electric Co.’s remaining 49 percent stake if it waits until 2018, as was envisioned in 2011 when the nation’s THE ASSOCIATED PRESS largest cable TV provider acquired Shown are the Comcast Center in Philadelphia, left, and the majority control of NBCUniversal.

‘Chose to do it’ now “We didn’t have to do this now. We chose to do it,” Comcast CEO Brian Roberts said Wednesday. “We’re bullish on the businesses we’re buying.” Shares of both Comcast and GE increased Wednesday. The flagship NBC network, once seen as the deal’s albatross, has been on the turnaround. Broadcast TV revenue rose 5 per-

Thomson Reuters cuts 2,500 jobs THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — News and financial information company Thomson Reuters on Wednesday said it is cutting 2,500 jobs, about 4 percent of its workforce.

CEO Jim Smith told analysts the company is eliminating the positions from its “Financial and Risk” division, which rents out trading terminals to the financial industry. It accounts for just over

half of Thomson Reuters’ revenue. “These are not easy decisions, but our cost structure has to meet our customers’ requirements,” Smith said. Thomson Reuters has about 60,000 employees.

On Wednesday, the company said it posted a profit of $372 million for the fourth quarter after a big loss in the same period a year earlier, capping what Smith called “a watershed year” for the firm.

But even as a figurative point, his assertion may cloak the fact that people who came to the U.S. illegally and win provisional status have the great advantage over applicants abroad of already being where they all want to go. ■ Obama: “Study after study shows that the sooner a child begins learning, the better he or she does down the road. ... “And for poor kids who need help the most, this lack of access to preschool education can shadow them for the rest of their lives. . . . “Every dollar we invest in high-quality early education can save more than $7 later on — by boosting graduation rates, reducing teen pregnancy, even reducing violent crime.” ■ The facts: Dozens of studies have shown Head Start graduates are more likely to complete high school than their at-risk peers who don’t participate in the program. But a study last year by the Department of Health and Human Services that found big vocabulary and social development gains for at-risk students in pre-kindergarten programs also found those effects largely faded by the time pupils reached third grade. The report didn’t explain why the kids saw a drop-off in performance or predict how they would fare as they aged. ■ Obama: “I urge this Congress to pursue a bipartisan, market-based solution to climate change, like the one John McCain and Joe Lieberman worked on together a few years ago. “But if Congress won’t act soon to protect future generations, I will. “I will direct my Cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy.” ■ The facts: Obama failed to get a global warming bill through Congress when both Houses were controlled by Democrats in 2010. With Republicans in control of the House, the chances of a bill to limit the gases blamed for global warming and to create a market for businesses to trade pollution credits are close to zero. The Obama administration already has acted to control greenhouse gases through existing law. It has boosted fuel-efficiency standards and proposed rules to control heat-trapping emissions from new power plants.

Republican response FLORIDA SEN. MARCO Rubio, the Republican response: “The real cause of our debt is that our government has been spending $1 trillion more than it takes in every year. That’s why we need a balanced-budget amendment.” ■ The facts: That statement may reflect the math behind recent debt, but it doesn’t get directly to the cause — the worst recession since the Depression and its Rubio aftereffects. The deficit is caused not only by spending but by reduced tax revenues. And during the recession, revenues from both individual and corporate taxes fell markedly. The steep increases in debt and the measures that should be taken to ease the burden are central to the debate in Washington. But there is no serious move afoot to amend the Constitution to prohibit deficit spending. The ability to take on debt has been used by governments worldwide and throughout U.S. history to shelter people from the ravages of a down economy, wage war and achieve many other ends. An effort to amend the Constitution for any purpose faces daunting odds; this would be no exception. Most state constitutions demand a balanced budget, but states lack some big obligations of the federal government, including national defense. And Washington’s ability to go deeper into debt provides states with at least a minimal safety net in times of high unemployment. The Associated Press And while there still are other ways to address climate change without Congress, its questionable regulation alone can achieve the reductions needed to start curbing global warming.

It is time-consuming and emotionally exhausting, even for those of us who don’t have the emotional connections that families do.” So, there we are, and I thank Mindi Blanchard for caring enough to jump in. While I might argue that what she describes is a “changed game,” I think that’s about semantics — and people matter more than semantics.

SEQUIM — Port Scandalous Roller Derby will hold a flapjack fundraiser breakfast at the Sequim Applebees, 130 River Road, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday. The cost is $10 per person. Proceeds will help with travel expenses as the roller derby teams represents the North Olympic Peninsula on road trips.

And many of us will just need to think about it — for a while. If we’re smart, we’ll think about it this way: “What if it were me?” What if it were? Love is a funny thing.

DEAR ABBY: It bothers me greatly to know that so many children start smoking at an early age. My husband and I did that, and now we’re paying an awful price. We have had emphysema for years. Four of our children also took up the habit. I finally started paying them to quit ($100 every two weeks they didn’t smoke — up to five payments). I decided to head off the temptation our grandchildren would face. We told them if they didn’t start smoking by the age of 18, we’d pay them $2,000. So far, seven of the 10 have collected a nice check on their 18th birthday, and we expect the remaining three to collect in turn. They have grown up understanding that cigarettes are “gross” and, if they start smoking, it will cost them a lot of money. Abby, you’re the best way to spread ideas. I hope you will think it worthwhile to pass this one along. Do as I Say, Gainesville, Fla.

Van Buren “They suppressed research, they destroyed documents, they manipulated the use of nicotine so as to increase and perpetuate addiction, they distorted the truth . . . so as to discourage smokers from quitting.” It is extremely important that young people be educated about — and prevented from — using tobacco. Smokers who start as teenagers increase their chances of becoming addicted. Think about it: reduced lung function, early heart disease, cancer, asthma, disfigurement. Yes, it could happen to you.


Dear Abby: I have a wonderful husband and adorable grandchildren, but I have developed deep feelings for a man I met at the gym where I go with a friend. I find myself thinking of this man during the day and night. I don’t want to have an affair, nor do I want him to know what I feel. When the thoughts of him come, they overwhelm me, so I try to pray.

Dear Do as I Say: I’m passing it along, but frankly, I’m not crazy about bribery. One would think that, having witnessed firsthand the serious health issues you and your husband are experiencing, your grandchildren would have understood what awaited them if they took up the habit. The tobacco industry has done a huge disservice to young people by marketing their products to them — and not just in the form of cigarettes, but also with flavored chewing tobacco, which is equally addictive. According to the U.S. Surgeon General, nearly 90 percent of smokers start by age 18. In 2006, U.S. District Judge Gladys E. Kessler of Washington, D.C., ruled that the major cigarette manufacturers were guilty of fraud and racketeering under the federal RICO Act. (When the tobacco companies appealed, the Supreme Court rejected it without comment.) She wrote that for more than 50 years, the tobacco industry “lied, misrepresented and deceived the American public, including smokers and the young people they avidly sought as ‘replacement smokers,’ about the dev-

Airbag codes common issues Dear Doctor: The “airbag” light on my 2004 Chrysler Sebring convertible comes on and stays on after I start the engine. The default code reader states there is a problem with the passenger-seat belt sensor in the buckle. Do you think the reading is accurate and if so, what has to be replaced? What would be a reasonable cost? Harvey Dear Harvey: We see a lot of airbag fault codes due to seat belt buckle issues and more often corroded wire connections due to moisture connections under the rug as well as insulation on the floor board on various car makes. The first step is to check both Alldata and Identifix for technical bulletins and quick diagnostic and trouble flow charts with connection locations and voltage specs. Regarding price, shop around but plan for one hour or so of labor charges.


A few weeks after Damato I get my oil changed, I’m already down a quart or two of oil. There are no leaks I can see. Any idea why I’m burning so much oil, and does this sound normal? Chris Dear Chris: It’s no secret some Honda engines have had oil-usage problems due to problem-worn valve guides and piston rings. The first step is to make sure there are no oil leaks and that the crankcase ventilation system is working. The next step is to check with the dealer for any bulletins or extended-warranty programs. If there are no Honda Oil-usage issue programs and the crankcase ventilation system is operatDear Doctor: I have a 2008 Honda Accord with the ing as designed, I would four-cylinder and get the oil switch to high-mileage oil, staying as close as possible changed every 3,000 miles.
