History of Takei inspires new musical GEORGE TAKEI HAS plenty of practice exploring strange new worlds on TV and film, but delving into a painful time in his family’s life onstage is something even he never imagined. Takei and his family were among thousands of JapaneseAmericans Takei put in internment camps during World War II. The 75-year-old “Star Trek” actor’s memories inspired composer/lyricist Jay Kuo to write “Allegiance: A New American Musical,” which has high hopes of making it to Broadway. Takei and Tony Awardwinner Lea Salonga (“Miss Saigon”) headline the production at The Old Globe in San Diego. Set to open Wednesday, the show follows a JapaneseAmerican war veteran, played by Takei, who looks back on his family’s time in an internment camp. “I wanted to turn my childhood experience in the internment camps that we were in into a script. Jay
said a musical is much more moving, and you’ll reach many more people with a musical,” Takei said in an interview. Kuo, who co-wrote the play with Marc Acio and producer Lorenzo Thione, understands some people may be skeptical about the idea of internment camps being musical fodder. But he said sometimes, a song is the best form of expression, especially in a culture that prides steadfastness and stoicism.
2-year bar ban A cast member of the “Jersey Shore” reality series has been banned for two years from a restaurant where she got drunk. New Jersey’s Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control on Thursday announced a settlement that bars Cortese Deena Cortese from Spicy Cantina & Mexican Grille in Seaside Heights. The restaurant must pay a $15,000 fine for serving a visibly intoxicated Cortese. She was arrested June 10 for dancing in a roadway and interfering with traffic. The state said Cortese and a film crew spent 90 minutes inside the restaurant, during which she walked on the bar, fell down
and stood on someone’s table while they were eating. She paid a $106 fine after pleading guilty to failing to use the sidewalk. “Jersey Shore” ended its run in Seaside Heights this year.

ELI ZBOROWSKI, 86, a survivor of the Holocaust who made it his mission to ensure it would never be forgotten, founded an American organization to support Israel’s official Holocaust memorial and raised more than $100 million for it, died Monday in New York City. The cause was cardiac arrest, said Rochel Berman, who, with her husband, George, published a biography of Mr. Zborowski last year. Mr. Zborowski started the American and International Societies for Yad Vashem, the Israeli memorial, in 1953, a year after he arrived in the United States as a penniless Jewish immigrant from Poland with little knowledge of English. He was the founding and only chairman of what was — in fact, if not in name — a single organization. Under him, it grew to 50,000 members. Mr. Zborowski served on the board of the memorial and helped come up with the idea, which it adopted, of remembering communities, not just individuals, lost in the Holocaust. He also founded the American Federation of Jewish Fighters, Camp Inmates and Nazi Victims,
Setting it Straight and was one of six survivors — and the only American — to greet Pope John Paul II during his visit to Yad Vashem in 2000. Mr. Zborowski and his wife, Diana, established a chair in Holocaust studies at Yeshiva University in New York City in 1976, the first such professorship in the country. He started a newspaper on Holocaust issues, Martyrdom and Resistance, which has been published for 37 years. Presidents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan appointed him to the United States Holocaust Memorial Council, and Mayor Edward I. Koch named him to the New York Permanent Commission on the Holocaust. Among many campaigns, he fought for com-
pensation for victims of Nazi medical experiments and the return of property seized from Jews during World War II.

1937 (75 years ago) The Federal Communications Commission exempted five Puget Sound Navigation Co. vessels from federal provisions requiring the maintenance of continuous radio watches. The FCC said the company — which operates the SS Iroquois and SS Olympic between Seattle and Victoria via Port Townsend and Port Angeles among vessels on other routes — offered voluntarily to equip its boats with radio telephone stations powered by no less than 50 watts for communication in emergencies. The commission said it
based its finding on the fact that the vessels do not go more than 20 nautical miles from land and stay in contact with coastal harbor state KQW, Edmonds, and with the radio telephone stations of the Coast Guard.
1962 (50 years ago) A 39-year-old Sequim man was killed when the car he was driving ran into a moving train crossing Washington Street just west of downtown Sequim. Police said the man was returning home from Port Angeles when the car hit
the engine step of the train in the grade crossing at 2:55 a.m. Investigating officers said skid marks on the Washington Street pavement suggested that the man apparently noticed the train too late to stop in time. Witnesses said the automatic warning signal was still flashing after the collision.

TODAY IS FRIDAY, Sept. 14, the 258th day of 2012. There are 108 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: ■ On Sept. 14, 1814, Francis Scott Key was moved to write a poem after witnessing how an American flag flying over Maryland’s Fort McHenry withstood a night of British bombardment during the War of 1812; the poem, “Defence of Fort McHenry,” later became the words to “The StarSpangled Banner.” On this date: ■ In 1712, Italian-born French astronomer Gian Domenico Cassini, discoverer of four of Saturn’s moons, died in Paris. ■ In 1812, Napoleon Bonapar-
te’s troops entered Moscow following the Battle of Borodino to find the Russian city largely abandoned and parts set ablaze. ■ In 1861, the first naval engagement of the Civil War took place as the USS Colorado attacked and sank the Confederate private schooner Judah off Pensacola, Fla. ■ In 1901, President William McKinley died in Buffalo, N.Y., of gunshot wounds inflicted by an assassin. Vice President Theodore Roosevelt succeeded him. ■ In 1927, modern dance pioneer Isadora Duncan died in Nice, France, when her scarf became entangled in a wheel of the sports car she was riding in.
■ In 1941, Vermont passed a resolution enabling its servicemen to receive wartime bonuses by declaring the U.S. to be in a state of armed conflict, giving rise to headlines that Vermont had “declared war on Germany.” ■ In 1972, the family drama “The Waltons” premiered on CBS. ■ In 1982, Princess Grace of Monaco, formerly actress Grace Kelly, died at age 52 of injuries from a car crash the day before; Lebanon’s president-elect, Bashir Gemayel, was killed by a bomb. ■ In 1986, President Ronald Reagan and his wife, Nancy, appeared together on radio and television to appeal for a “national crusade” against drug abuse.
■ Ten years ago: President George W. Bush, welcoming Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to Camp David, said the United States was willing to take on Iraq alone if the United Nations failed to “show some backbone” by confronting Saddam Hussein. ■ Five years ago: Defense Secretary Robert Gates raised the possibility of cutting U.S. troop levels in Iraq to 100,000 by the end of 2008, well beyond the cuts President George W. Bush had approved. ■ One year ago: A key government panel released a report saying that BP bore ultimate responsibility for the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history.

A3 Briefly: Nation New York bans sugary drinks at many venues NEW YORK — New York City’s Board of Health opened up a new, experimental front in the war on obesity Thursday, passing a rule banning sales of big sodas and other sugary drinks at restaurants, concession stands and other eateries. The regulation, which was proposed in the spring by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and approved by a panel of health experts Bloomberg after several months of review, puts a 16-ounce size limit on cups and bottles of nondiet soda, sweetened teas and other calorie-packed beverages. The ban will apply in fastfood restaurants, movie houses and Broadway theaters, workplace cafeterias and most other places selling prepared food. It doesn’t cover beverages sold in supermarkets or most convenience stores. The restaurant and beverage industries have assailed the plan as misguided.
Armstrong service WASHINGTON — The nation bid farewell Thursday to Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon in 1969.
The powerful of Washington, pioneers of space and the everyday public crowded into Washington National Cathedral for a public interfaith memorial for the very private astronaut. Armstrong died last month in Ohio at age 82. “He’s now slipped the bonds of Earth once again, but what a legacy he left,” former Treasury Secretary John Snow said. Apollo 11 crewmates Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, Mercury astronaut John Glenn and about two dozen members of Congress were among the estimated 1,500 people in the cavernous cathedral.
18 arrested at airport NEW YORK — Authorities said workers at New York’s John F. Kennedy airport stole 100,000 mini liquor bottles and duty-free items such as liquor, perfume and cigarettes. Eighteen employees were arrested Wednesday on charges including larceny. Fifteen are current or former truck drivers for LSG Sky Chefs, an airline catering company owned by Lufthansa that serves as a subcontractor to American Airlines. The other three are security guards. Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said they stole more than $750,000 worth of liquor and other items. A search warrant at the home of one retired truck driver turned up more than 500 garbage bags filled with mini liquor bottles, he said. The Associated Press
Briefly: World Supposed leader of Gulf cartel caught MEXICO CITY — A man believed to be the leader of the Gulf drug cartel, which controls some of the most valuable and violently contested smuggling routes along the U.S. border, was arrested by Mexican marines and presented to the public Thursday. The capture of Jorge Eduardo Costilla Sanchez was called a major victory in the military battle against drug trafficking. Adm. Jose Costilla Luis Vergara, a navy spokesman, said the burly, mustachioed man detained Wednesday evening in the Gulf port of Tampico was the capo known as “El Coss.” One of Mexico’s most-wanted men, the 41-year-old was charged in the U.S. with drugtrafficking and threatening U.S. law enforcement officials. U.S. authorities offered $5 million for information leading to his arrest.

SANAA, Yemen — Chanting “death to America” and “death to Israel,” hundreds of protesters angered by an anti-Islam film stormed the U.S. Embassy compound in Yemen’s capital and burned the American flag Thursday, the latest in a series of attacks on American diplomatic missions in the Middle East.
U.S. filmmaker identified WASHINGTON — Federal authorities have identified Nakoula Basseley Nakoul, a Coptic Christian living in Southern California who is on probation after his conviction for federal bank fraud charges, as the producer behind the anti-Muslim film that ignited mob violence against U.S. embassies across the Mideast. Nakoul, 55, uses numerous aliases and initially denied any involvement with the film.
American actors and actresses who appeared in “Innocence of Muslims” issued a joint statement Wednesday saying they were misled about the project and alleged that some of their dialogue was crudely dubbed during post-production. Egypt’s Christian Coptic populace has long decried what they call a history of discrimination and occasional violence from the country’s Muslim majority.
Syria’s devastating civil war. Lakhdar Brahimi, the U.N.-Arab League envoy, was expected to meet Syrian President Brahimi Bashar Assad today. “We are confident that Mr. Brahimi understands the developments and the way to solve problems despite all the complications,” Faisal Mekdad, deputy Syrian foreign minister, told reporters in Damascus. Brahimi replaced Kofi Annan, who left the job in frustration in August after his efforts failed to stem a conflict that started in March 2011.

Increased boldness The assaults this week in Yemen, Egypt and the storming of a U.S. consulate in Libya that killed four Americans point to an increased boldness among Islamists since a wave of revolts last year toppled authoritarian leaders.

BENGHAZI, Libya — The attack that killed four Americans in Libya, including the U.S. ambassador, was an organized, two-part operation by heavily armed militants that included a precisely timed raid on a supposedly secret safe house just as Libyan and U.S. security forces were arriving to rescue evacuated consulate staff, a senior Libyan security official said Thursday. Wanis el-Sharef, eastern Libya’s deputy interior minister, said Tuesday’s attacks were suspected to have been timed to mark the 9/11 anniversary and that the militants used civilians protesting an anti-Islam film as cover for their action.

El-Sharef, who was running the Interior Ministry’s operations room commanding security forces in the city, said the crowd built at the consulate — a one-story villa in an upscale Benghazi neighborhood — in several stages. First, a small group of gunmen arrived, then a crowd of civilians angry over the film. Later, heavily armed men with armored vehicles, some with rocket-propelled grenades, joined, swelling the numbers to more than 200. Stevens, he said, likely died of asphyxiation following a grenade explosion that started a fire. U.S. officials have not confirmed the account.

AN ALASKA WOMAN accused of leaving her two young children in a car when it was at nearly 30 degrees below zero has been given jail time. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner said that Kristin Smith, 26, of Fairbanks was sentenced Wednesday to three months in jail after pleading guilty to misdemeanor reckless endangerment. Alaska state troopers said it was 28 degrees below zero when Smith left her two children — ages 3 and 4 — in a car one January morning after the vehicle slid off the road and got stuck in a ditch. The children, wearing little clothing, were in the car about 20 minutes before a passer-by found them.

Sometime Monday, Bob-bob the cat found his way into Ethel Maze’s suitcase, made it through screening at Port Columbus International Airport and was loaded onto the Orlando, Fla., flight. The Orlando Sentinel reported the black cat popped out when Maze unzipped her bag after checking into her hotel. Maze, of Circleville, Ohio, said the 14-month-old cat was shaken but still purring. Maze was part of a group of disabled veterans and volunteers making an annual trip to Orlando.
THE FEDERAL RESERVE ended a two-day meeting Thursday by announcing it will add $23 billion of mortgage bonds to its portfolio by month’s end. It said it now expects to hold shortterm interest rates near zero until at least mid-2015. Its statement said the economy had continued to expand “at a moderate pace,” but the Fed had concluded “growth might not be strong enough to generate sustained improvement in labor market conditions.” Eleven members of the committee voted for the action; the lone dissenter was Jeffrey Lacker of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, Va.
GUATEMALA’S HEAD OF emergency evacuations said a “massive evacuation” of more than 33,000 people has been carried out after the eruption of a long-active volcano near one of the country’s biggest tourist attractions. Sergio Cabanas said the evacuees were leaving some 17 villages around the Volcan de Fuego, or Volcano of Fire, which sits about 10 miles from the colonial city of Antigua. The agency said the volcano spewed lava nearly 2,000 feet down slopes and billowed with ash Thursday. Seismologists also have said that a series of explosions has been coming from the 12,346-foot-high volcano.

FORKS â€” A weekendlong birthday celebration in honor of Forksâ€™ most famous fictional teenage girl begins tonight, and the annual party is still pretty big, according to Mike Gurling, Forks Visitor Center manager. Stephenie Meyer Day is celebrated in Forks the weekend nearest Sept. 16, the birthdate of Bella Swan, the central character in the Twilight saga novels. Meyer never has been to any of them and is not expected this weekend. The Twilight saga is a series of four books written by Meyer, and five movies based on the books, that tells the fictional story of a love triangle between teenager Swan, the sparkling but still fearsome vampire Edward Cullen and the ever-shirtless Quileute werewolf Jacob Black. The weekend will offer â€œTwi-hards,â€? fans of the Twilight saga, a chance to immerse themselves in Meyerâ€™s vision of Forks and the world of vampires, werewolves and fashion. The city is expecting 2,500 to 3,000 visitors for the event, and the lodging in town is pretty much booked up, Gurling said. Forksâ€™ population, as of 2010, was 3,532, making the party almost as big as the town.
Holding steady Visitor interest in Forks is at about the same level as last year, Gurling said. While the numbers are about half the height of Twilight tourism in 2010, when more than 16,000 visitors passed through town in a single summer month, the Forks Visitor Center recorded 8,606 visitors in July and 7,747 in August, he said. Gurling said visitors are a mix of returning fans, whom visitor center employees are beginning to recognize by name, and a new wave of fans who have only recently read the series. There is still one more movie to be released in the series, keeping Twilight in the thoughts of fans. â€œThe Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2â€? will be in theaters Nov. 16. This year, an independent Stephenie Meyer Day Committee has taken charge of the event, which was organized by the Forks

Stephenie Meyer Day weekend schedule PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Here is a schedule for the Stephenie Meyer Day weekend in Forks:
Today â– Stephenie Meyer Day meet-andgreet â€” 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., JTâ€™s Sweet Stuffs, 80 N. Forks Ave., where full schedules and maps are available. â– Book-signing of Twilight Territory, by author Chris Cook â€” 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., Chinook Pharmacy, 11 S. Forks Ave. â– Bellaâ€™s bachelorette party â€” 8 p.m., beginning at Aliceâ€™s Closet, 130 Forks Ave. â– Stephenie Meyer Day silent auction â€” Begins at Chinook Pharmacy and will run all weekend.
Saturday â– â€œTwilightâ€? product vendors open â€” 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Spartan Avenue. â– John Henson â€œTwilightâ€? costumes
and props â€” 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Forks High School, 261 S.

Spartan Ave.
The Puget Sound Blood Center will be taking blood donations from 10 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Forks High School parking lot, 121 Spartan Ave. The blood drive is a great way for the Twilight folks to give back to the community, blood drive organizer Pura Carlson said. Unlike many vampires, the technicians are professionals who are expected to take only blood that is offered freely, Carlson said. Vampiric infections are unlikely to be communicable through blood donations, so those who want to become a â€œnewbornâ€? vampire will need to look elsewhere for conversion, Carlson said. Both visitors and Forks residents are encouraged to drop by, she said.
Birthday party The weekend will conclude with Bellaâ€™s Birthday Party, to be held at noon Sunday at JTâ€™s Sweet Stuff. The party will celebrate the newly named Bella Cullenâ€™s first birthday after becoming a vampire, and visitors are being warned that Bella may look a little different after her transformation. A silent auction of â€œTwilightâ€? and â€œTwilightâ€?inspired items will take place during the weekend. Items include dinner with â€œEdward Cullen,â€? replicas of clothing worn by Swan, as seen in the movies, and memorabilia, and can be seen at Chinook Pharmacy, 11 S. Forks Ave. Bids will be taken inside of the pharmacy. The auction ends at 3 p.m. Sunday. Proceeds from the auction will support the 2013 Stephenie Meyer Day, according to organizers.

Ruling appealed YAKIMA â€” A Yakima teacher is appealing a ruling that she should be suspended for 12 months because of inappropriate interactions with two teen students. East Valley High School teacher Michele Taylor wants a Yakima County Superior Court judge to put the suspension on hold during the appeal. Three years ago, Taylor was placed on paid administrative leave from her job after a 15-year-old student told school officials and Yakima County sheriffâ€™s detectives that Taylor had exchanged more than 1,000 text messages with him and had sex with a 16-year-old student. She remains on leave after being acquitted of criminal charges. An administrative law judge has upheld a state disciplinary panelâ€™s decision that Taylor should have her teaching certificate suspended for one year. Peninsula Daily News and The Associated Press

Police arrest fugitive after search effort Man surrenders without fight BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ
as well as the warrant issued by the state Department of Corrections. No bond has been set. Smith said White had a connection with the other people in the house where he was found, though the nature of the connection was not known Thursday. Port Angeles police knocked on the door of the house on Georgiana Street, and White surrendered without incident. Smith said police did not need a search warrant to arrest White. White had been spotted in the 1100 block of Front Street shortly after noon Wednesday, prompting a police search. White has been arrested and has served jail time for assault charges multiple times in the past, most recently pleading guilty in May 2011 to second-degree assault following the attack of a woman in January that year. White was ordered to serve 13 months in jail and 18 months community custody for that guilty plea.

BLYN â€” Roughly half a million dollarsâ€™ worth of power line replacement is complete near Blyn in what Clallam County Public Utility District officials said will bring greater electricity reliability to customers in the area. PUD commissioners voted unanimously Monday afternoon to accept as complete a $548,000 contract with Alaska-based City Pacific Services to rebuild overhead transmission and distribution lines stretching from the Blyn substation west to Johnson Creek.
1976 equipment The new lines, about 16,000 feet in total, replaced equipment that had been in place since 1976, which means it was reaching the end of its effective service life, PUD spokesman Mike Howe said. The money for the project came from the PUDâ€™s operating budget, Howe explained, so no rate

Mock ship cannon battle turns out to be real deal Supreme Court: THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
DANA POINT, Calif. â€” Two women taking part in a mock battle at a California tall-ship festival received minor injuries when buckshot was loaded into one shipâ€™s cannon instead of blanks. The Amazing Grace fired at the vessel Bill of Rights, hitting two people onboard during a Dana Point festival that celebrates 19thcentury seafaring. Amazing Grace is a 83-foot topsail schooner based out of San Diego Bay in Southern California and Gig Harbor, Wash.
One of the women hit, Bill of Rights deckhand Donna Reed, said she and volunteer Laura Huber were struck by multiple pellets. â€œIt was like a scene from â€˜The Exorcist,â€™â€? Reed said. â€œI started to bleed in several different areas.â€?
Still sore days later Reed said she was still sore Wednesday, four days after the Saturday accident, and still had some of the pellets in her leg because doctors said it was safer than removing them immediately.
Both ships normally would use small cannons that use blank charges that look like common shotgun shells. It was not clear how the buckshot ended up getting loaded into the Amazing Graceâ€™s cannon. â€œThe plan is to never shoot live ammunition,â€? Bentley Cavazzi, chief operations officer for the Ocean Institute which runs the festival, told the Times. Orange County sheriffâ€™s spokeswoman Gail Krause said her department is awaiting the outcome of an investigation before deciding whether to pursue charges of
negligent discharge. But Reed, a South Carolina native who recently took a job on the ship as a deckhand and public relations representative, said that regardless of the reason, she and Huber hold no grudge against the crew of the Amazing Grace. In fact, she said, one crew member is a nurse who was the first to help them. â€œWe are both fine and just glad it was not more serious,â€? Reed told the Orange County Register. â€œWho else can say they have been shot by a cannon?â€?

Gay-rights law not retroactive Unanimous ruling in UW employee suit
(Monday, Sept. 17 - Thursday Nov. 1)
BY RACHEL LA CORTE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA â€” The state Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the stateâ€™s 2006 expansion of the anti-discrimination law to include gays and lesbians is not retroactive. The unanimous ruling is in response to a lawsuit filed by an employee of the University of Washington who alleged she was discriminated against by her supervisor and was subjected to a hostile work environment because she was gay. The high court said that while incidents that occurred before the law took effect cannot be retroactively remedied, they can be used in an overall hostileworkplace case if the actions continued after June 2006.

found in favor of the university, saying the gay civilrights law was not retroactive to when Loeffelholz alleged the first incident. The court also found it was not reasonable to conclude the â€œangry manâ€? comment Lukehart made after the law took effect was motivated by Loeffelholzâ€™s sexual orientation. The Court of Appeals reaffirmed that the law was not retroactive but said that did not impact Loeffelholzâ€™s pre-2006 claim, so long as the â€œangry manâ€? comment was made after the lawâ€™s effective date. The Supreme Court, led by Justice Susan Owens, agreed with the appeals court on the issue of retroactivity but said it â€œerred in allowing recovery for preamendment conduct.â€? Because the expansion of the anti-discrimination law â€œapplies prospectively only, Loeffelholz cannot recover for acts that occurred prior to the amendmentâ€? of the law, Owens wrote. â€œTo do so would hold the University liable for conduct that was not unlawful at the time it was committed. . . . Before June 7, 2006, Lukehartâ€™s sexual-orientationbased harassment was merely reprehensible, not unlawful.â€?

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
(C) â€” FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2012
Plea: Case law CONTINUED FROM A1 Steim is accused of driving with a 0.23 percent blood-alcohol level when she caused a wreck that killed Ellen Joan DeBondt, a wellknown home health nurse and avid outdoorswoman, on state Highway 112 east of Joyce about an hour after sunrise March 6, 2011. The legal limit in Washington is 0.08 percent. A reckless-endangerment charge and the legal aggravators to the charges will be dropped in exchange for a guilty plea to vehicular homicide and an Alford plea to witness tampering. An Alford plea means Steim maintains her innocence but admits there is enough evidence for a conviction. The 72-month sentence is an agreed recommendation that Anderson reached with Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney Deb Kelly. In addition to credit for time served, Steim will be eligible for a reduced sentence for good behavior. Clallam County Superior Court Judge Ken Williams dismissed a charge of first-degree murder with extreme indifference in July. Kelly filed that charge in April. Anderson used case law to argue that his client did not commit murder. DeBondt, 44, was driving eastbound on her way to work when the wreck occurred at the highwayâ€™s intersection with Oxenford Road. The State Patrol responded at 7:54 a.m. Court papers allege that Steim drank and partied all night, got into an argument at a hotel after-party and was traveling to Freshwater Bay with her friend Nicole Boucher when she caused the crash.
Many want to speak â€œI know that there are going to be a number of friends and family members who wish to speak [at the sentencing],â€? Kelly told Williams at a five-minute court hearing Thursday. Anderson said there are rules that limit the number of people who can speak. â€œI am not interested in people beating up on my client for four hours,â€? Anderson said. â€œJust from the tone of the letters Iâ€™ve gotten, youâ€™re going to hear a lot of the same stuff.â€? Dozens of DeBondtâ€™s friends and family members have written letters to Williams, imploring the judge to reinstate the murder charge. Williams said he had not read the letters as of Thursday. He said he would review them prior to sentencing if the attorneys wished. â€œI donâ€™t have any problem with it,â€? Anderson said. â€œItâ€™s understandable why people are angry, but they show a tremendous ignorance of the law. â€œBasically, theyâ€™re the same letter.â€? Kelly took exception to Andersonâ€™s â€œgratuitous insult to individuals who are concerned citizens.â€? Anderson countered: â€œMy client has been demonized by people who know nothing about the case. â€œMy position is that they should have been better informed, and just because you get to speak doesnâ€™t mean you get to say stupid

things,â€? Anderson said. Anne Shaffer, one of DeBondtâ€™s friends, also took exception to Andersonâ€™s comments. â€œTo have her killed this way is horrifying,â€? Shaffer said in a telephone interview. â€œThen to have to sit with her family and friends in the courtroom and be insulted by the defense, and not have the judge stop it, is just about the most unjust thing Iâ€™ve seen or witnessed anywhere.â€? Williams kept the hearing short and cleared his Monday morning calendar for the sentencing. The sentencing will coincide with the most recently scheduled trial date.
Regional leader Shaffer, executive director of the Port Angelesbased Coastal Watershed Institute, said DeBondt was a â€œregional leaderâ€? in aquatic sports. â€œEllen was working with me and the Coastal Watershed Institute on a mentoring effort for high school girls to get them involved in aquatic sports and hopefully an aquatics career,â€? Shaffer said. Steim will get credit for spending 10 of the past 18 months in the Clallam County jail.
Monitoring device She posted a $100,000 bail bond 10 days after the wreck but was sent back to jail in December after the alcohol-monitoring device she was wearing detected a 0.058 percent blood-alcohol level Oct. 30. Steim had been convicted of negligent driving in January 2011. That charge was reduced from physical control of a vehicle while intoxicated at a Port Angeles gas station in November 2010. Many of the letter-writers referred to the 2007 death of Irene Harris, whom Steim struck and killed while driving at night in Port Angeles, to support a murder charge with â€œextreme indifferenceâ€? in DeBondtâ€™s case. Harris, 49, was walking across Front Street at Albert Street when she was hit by a car driven by a sober Steim. Harris died the next day at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Steim was ticketed for failure to yield to a pedestrian. No felony charges were filed.

â€˜Miracleâ€™ saves 6-year-old from tragedy in car wreck BY LEAH LEACH PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” A cast-iron planter made the difference between terrifying mishap and tragedy for a 6-year-old boy who was struck by a car that suddenly backed up over a curb and into landscaping on Lawrence Street. â€œCall it a miracle or divine intervention, the car backed up perfectly in such a fashion that being off its course even a couple inches, and we could have had a major tragedy,â€? said Port Townsend Police Officer Luke Bogues, who declined to identify those involved because of department policy. ________ The Edmonds boy, who Reporter Rob Ollikainen can be was walking on the sidereached at 360-452-2345, ext. 5072, or at rollikainen@peninsula walk with his mother outdailynews.com. side Petals Flower Boutique
at 1031 Lawrence St. at about 12:25 p.m. Wednesday, was treated for minor injuries at Jefferson Healthcare hospital. The boy was hit by a 1998 Toyota Camry driven by a 79-year-old woman from Port Ludlow that suddenly backed into him. The driver said she thought she was pressing the brake, Bogues said. Instead, she accelerated backward out of a parallel parking space, drove over a curb, struck the boy and continued over a cast-iron planter in front of the business, Bogues said. When the Camry drove into the planter, its rear end raised off the ground, creating a space underneath the car that allowed the boy to avoid being trapped below the under-
carriage, Bogues said. He was pulled out by bystanders after the vehicle stopped and then was taken by East Jefferson Fire-Rescue medics to Jefferson Healthcare, where he was treated and discharged. â€œThat old cast-iron planter supported the weight of the car so the 6-year-old boy avoided major injury when he got knocked underneath,â€? Bogues said, adding that â€œa ceramic or plastic planter would have been crushed.â€?
Wonderful outcome Petals shop owner Denise Blanchard, who wasnâ€™t at the shop at the time, said the outcome was â€œwonderful.â€? â€œHe was screaming,â€? she said she was told, â€œbut he
was able to get scooted out,â€? she said Thursday. Blanchard said the boy and his mother visited the shop later in the day. â€œHe came into the shop later and said he was fine,â€? she said. â€œThey just wanted to thank everybody and let them know he was OK. â€œIt was one of those accidents that happen, but miraculously, everybodyâ€™s OK,â€? she added. The driver was evaluated by aid personnel before being driven home by a friend, Bogues said. An infraction for unsafe backing is being forwarded to Jefferson County District Court, he added. Blanchard said she hadnâ€™t yet accessed the damage but figured it to be between $1,000 and $2,000.

One critical problem is the way we spend/waste our tax dollars — over $1 trillion per year on the military and new weapons, which is 60 percent of the federal discretionary budget. Health and Human Services amounts to 6 percent, as does education. Energy is 1.5 percent, which is ludicrous. It’s time for the public and our elected officials to stop the blame game, special interests, waste, fraud, fear and greed and come up with some actual
plans other than business as usual. It has been proven without a doubt that if we follow either platform, we are destined to fail. It’s time for fresh and courageous ideas. We need to develop an energy plan. We need to stop policing the world. We need to stop catering to all special interests and take a hard look at how we spend our money.

Romney breaks stride as a calm guy MITT ROMNEY BROKE our deal. Perhaps he didn’t know he’d made it, although, really, I thought it was pretty clear. He could do anything he Gail wanted during this campaign Collins as long as he sent out signals that once he got in the White House he was not likely to be truly crazy. We, in return, were going to be able to continue with our normal sleeping patterns through the fall. It didn’t seem to be a lot to ask, but when the crisis in the Middle East flared up, Romney turned out to have no restraining inner core. All the uneasy feelings you got when he went to London and dissed the Olympic organizers can now come into full bloom. Feel free to worry about anything. That he’d declare war on Malta. Lock himself in a nuclearmissile silo and refuse to come out until there’s a tax cut. Hand the country over to space aliens. Here is the Republican candidate for president of the United States on Wednesday, explaining why he broke into a moment of rising international tension and denounced the White House as “disgraceful” for a mild statement made by the American Embassy in Cairo about the importance of respecting other people’s religions: “They clearly — they clearly sent mixed messages to the world. And — and the statement came from the administration — and the embassy is the administration — the statement that came from the administration was a — was a statement which is akin to apology and I think was a — a — a severe miscalculation.” Feel free to reread this when you’re staring at the ceiling at 4 a.m.
This all began on Sept. 11. There were protests in the Middle East, at least some of them involving an anti-Islamic movie, “Innocence of Muslims,” which depicts the Prophet Muhammad as a cowardly, drunken torturer of children and old women. I did not see any puppies being dismembered, but then I only watched the 14-minute trailer. A man (believed to be Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, a 55-year-old Coptic Christian (the Coptic church is the largest Christian religion in the Middle East) whose past includes numerous aliases and a bank fraud conviction) told The Wall Street Journal that he made the film in Southern California with $5 million from more than 100 donors. However, nothing the man said about himself seemed to hold up in the light of day. And if he did raise $5 million, those donors need to hire a lawyer. The trailer looks as though it was made by a 13-year-old boy with access to a large supply of fake beards. The film popped up on YouTube dubbed in Arabic, stirring outrage. In response, the American Embassy in Cairo said it deplored “the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.” Does that seem all that bad to you, people? It was definitely a film whose only point was to offend people of the Islamic faith. I would also call whoever made it not well-guided. It isn’t clear how the movie, the protests in Egypt and the murders of four American diplomats in Libya fit together. That’s the job of intelligence experts. We’re stuck with the task of evaluating Romney, who went for a cheap attack at a time when any calm, mature adult would have waited and opted for at least a brief show of national unity. The one big advantage to being a boring candidate is that you give
the appearance of calm and stability. But, suddenly, Romney seemed to want to go for a piquant mélange of dull and hotheaded. Virtually nobody seemed to think this was all that great a plan. The Romney campaign, according to CNN, helpfully passed out suggestions for supporters who might want to defend Mitt. (When asked whether he was too quick on the attack, loyalists were supposed to say: “No. It is never too soon to stand up for American values and interests.”) But not all that many other Republicans seemed excited about joining in. A few social conservatives did unveil a hitherto-unnoticed passion for the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom to make fun of religion. “It was disheartening to hear the administration condemn Americans engaging in free speech that hurt the feelings of Muslims,” said Sen. Jim DeMint. And, let’s see who else. Donald Rumsfeld tweeted support. Party chairman Reince Priebus chimed in: “Obama sympathizes with attackers in Egypt. Sad and pathetic.” Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona said the embassy’s comment “is like the judge telling the woman that got raped, ‘You asked for it because of the way you dressed.’ That’s the same thing.” On this side: Mitt Romney, a totally disgraced former secretary of defense, a person named Reince Priebus, and a new Republican rape comment. Two months to go, and we’re rethinking our presumption that the Republican primary voters picked the most stable option.

Chicago teacher union boss agitates CHICAGO TEACHERS UNION President Karen Lewis walks, talks and barks like a rootsy Occupy Wall Street activist. But this Big Labor loudmouth who’s Michelle leading the Malkin abandonment of nearly 400,000 schoolchildren in the Windy City is just another power-grabbing union fat cat. Instead of academic excellence, she rails about “social justice.” Instead of accountability, she fumes about “profits” and curses merit pay. Lewis has marched with the Occu-clowns denouncing capitalism and promoting “socialism [as] the alternative.” She raves: “Occupy Wall Street and the whole concept of the 99 percent is an extraordinarily important movement.” And she earned praise as a “fist-in-the-air, crowd-rousing, dynamic union leader” by former Communist Party revolutionary turned Obama-funded “school reformer” Michael Klonsky. While she pays solidarity lip service to the 99 percent, Lewis is part of the deep-pocketed elite of public employee union chiefs who blame everyone else for their own financial and educational ruin. She’s good at pandering to her Che Guevara T-shirt-wearing colleagues and trash-talking the political machine. But she is the machine. The Chicago Teachers Union rakes in nearly $30 million in forced dues from rank-and-file teachers every year. CTU is an affiliate of the behemoth AFL-CIO, which dropped an estimated $100 million in forced dues to support Democratic candidates and causes during the 2008 and 2010 election cycles.

Briefly: State More West Nile cases confirmed OLYMPIA — State officials say West Nile virus has been confirmed in two more people in Washington state, bringing the total this year to four cases. The state Health Department said Thursday that a Benton County woman in her 50s who contracted the virus in state was hospitalized. A teen boy who lives in Clark County got the virus while traveling. Last week, officials announced two other cases: A Pierce County woman in her 70s likely was exposed to the virus while traveling out of state, and a Yakima man in his 30s hadn’t left the state. Their test results were confirmed at the Washington State Public Health Laboratories in Shoreline. West Nile virus has been reported in 48 states this year.
1957 murder case SYCAMORE, Ill. — The defense has rested its case on behalf of a Seattle man accused of killing a 7-yearold northern Illinois girl in 1957. Attorneys for 72-yearold Jack McCullough rested their case after calling just a few witnesses over a few hours Thursday. The judge recessed shortly after the defense finished and suggested he could rule today after closing arguments.
McCullough has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping and killing Maria Ridulph in Sycamore on Dec. 3, 1957. McCullough was arrested in 2011 after his former girlfriend talked to investigators.
Slaying arrest EVERETT — Snohomish County authorities say a second man has been arrested in connection with the killing of an 18-year-old man in Burlington. The Daily Herald in Everett reported that a 19-year-old man from Lynnwood was arrested Wednesday for first-degree murder in the death of 18-year-old Fernando Mendoza. Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Shari Irteton said detectives believe the man assisted in moving and concealing Mendoza’s body, as well as moving the victim’s car to a Marysville business parking lot in an attempt to cover up the crime. Mendoza died of multiple gunshot wounds. His body was found Sept. 3 near Snohomish. On Monday, U.S. marshals arrested 20-year-old Edgar Omar Alejandre in Oxnard, Calif. Witnesses said Mendoza was going to meet Alejandre on July 2 to discuss a debt. Mendoza was never heard from again. He was reported missing July 3. The Associated Press

Firefighters burn grass to slow wildfires in Eastern Washington THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WENATCHEE — Nearly 3,000 firefighters dug lines and burned dry grass and brush in the path of several large wildfires in Eastern Washington on Thursday, aiming to better control the blazes before the weather changes and potential winds return. Seven large complexes of fires have burned across 229 square miles of parched land east of the Cascades,
where some areas have gone without any measurable rain for weeks. Heavy smoke covered much of the region Thursday, eroding air quality but serving a positive sign of low winds and fires that weren’t quite so active. Firefighters hoped to take advantage of the favorable conditions before the weather shifts again. A high-pressure system in the area through Thurs-
day was expected to lift today, and the effect is much like removing a lid from a hot pot, said Connie Mehmel, a spokeswoman for a complex of fires burning in the Wenatchee area.
‘Opening the flue’ “As that starts to lift, we can get instability in the area — more winds, more active fires — like opening the flue,” Mehmel said. Some 2,945 firefighters

were assigned to the seven large fire complexes Thursday, according to the state Department of Natural Resources. Some of those crews worked through the night Wednesday to dig fire lines, protect structures and set ablaze dry fuels that could feed the fires during the heat of day. Near Lake Chelan, residents of 28 homes were warned to be ready to evacuate if a 20-acre wildfire grows. The fire, located about 9 miles northwest of Chelan, was visible from town.
39 square miles Several fires near Wenatchee together have burned across 39 square miles. No homes have been lost on any of those blazes, but residents of about 200 homes were evacuated, Mehmel said. A fire near the community of Entiat, north of Wenatchee, was 35 percent contained, Mehmel said, but fire officials had no containment estimates for the other fires in that complex. Near Grand Coulee Dam, two fires grew to a combined 91,383 acres, or 143 square miles. Fire officials confirmed Wednesday that three homes and nine outbuildings had burned there. The fire was 20 percent contained. Another fire burning 17 miles southwest of Creston was 40 percent contained Thursday. That fire has blacked 24,500 acres, or about 38 square miles, some 50 miles west of Spokane.

■ Schedule for Heritage Days/B3
PORT ANGELES — Civil War reenactors from across Western Washington will be some of the new faces at the Port Angeles Downtown Association’s 11th annual Heritage Days this weekend. Heritage Days, which this year celebrates Port Angeles’ 150th anniversary, will welcome Civil War reenactors playing men and women who served in the 20th Maine Army companies roughly 150 years ago, Heritage Days Committee Chairwoman April Bellerud said. The re-enactors will be at the
Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday running drills, recruiting volunteers and educating Heritage Days attendees about life during the Civil War.
Re-enactors Every member of the 20th Maine companies represented Saturday actually lived during the Civil War, Bellerud explained, with re-enactors spending prior months researching
their chosen historical figure. The Port Angeles sesquicentennial marked the anniversary of an order signed by President Abraham Lincoln on June 19, 1862, that established the area as a town site. While ordering a reservation for military uses and a lighthouse on Ediz Hook, Lincoln shortened a Spanish name given to the area in 1791 by Spanish explorer Francisco de Eliza. Lincoln’s order changed Puerto de Nuestra Señora de Los Angeles — Port of Our Lady of the Angels — to Port Angeles and gave a post office that had been established in 1860 a new name. TURN
’12 Antler Show fetes art of hunt Runs both days of Quilcene Fair BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
QUILCENE — When Mari and Gary Phillips started the Quilcene Antler Show as an adjunct to the annual Quilcene Fair, they weren’t sure where it would lead. Three years later, the Antler Show has evolved into a celebration of the art of hunting. “Some people think that hunting is just going out and shooting something, but that’s not all it’s about,” Mari Phillips said. “There is so much more, and we are hoping to pass on some of that knowledge.” While most of the Quilcene Fair activities are Saturday, taking place at or around Quilcene School, 294715 U.S. Highway 101,
the Antler Show is both days. It runs from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, and takes place in the school gym. “It gets bigger and better every year,” Phillips said. “This year, we are also doing a gun and knife show, but it’s taking place at the Masonic Hall because you can’t have guns at a school.”
Gun and knife show The gun and knife show will be from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday. Aside from displaying antlers, the show offers information about taxidermy, knapping — the process of making arrowheads — and hunting dog training. The quality of the antlers has changed since the first show, Phillips said.

PORT ANGELES â€” The Clallam County Historical Society will host â€œA Celebration of Clallam County Schoolsâ€? in conjunction with Heritage Days on Saturday. The celebration will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the site of the former Lincoln School at 926 W. Eighth St., corner of Eighth and C streets in Port Angeles. â€œAs the new school year starts, weâ€™re celebrating schools,â€? said Kathy Monds, executive director of the Clallam County Historical Society. â€œItâ€™s an historic look at the schools in Clallam County,â€? she said.
Living memories The celebration will feature exhibits about the schools, teachers and students from throughout Clallam County. Planned are an antique-car show, local authors, scrapbooking, notecards, sales of Lincoln School â€œbricks,â€? photo displays and live music from Banjo 101, Charlie Grall and Old Time Fiddlers. A hot dog lunch prepared by Skills Center students will be available for purchase Saturday. A drawing for the

queen-sized â€œLincoln Memoriesâ€? quilt â€” which features a representation of the brickfronted school building â€” will take place at 2 p.m. The quilt was created by Pat Donelan and Karen Grimsley, both 76, to benefit the site of the school where they began their lifelong friendship in the fourth grade. Lincoln School was built in 1916 and closed in 1978. The Clallam County Historical Society purchased the building in 1991, and it has been undergoing renovations to become offices and a museum ever since. Proceeds from the quilt raffle will go toward renovations. Raffle tickets cost $2. They can be purchased at the Museum at the Carnegie, 207 S. Lincoln St., from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. today and Saturday, and will be sold at the Lincoln School site for two hours before the raffle. Event sponsors are Jimâ€™s Pharmacy, Lost Mountain Country, Kitsap Bank, Pacific Office Equipment, Baby Grand, Dr. Thomas McCurdy and Totak Press. For more information, phone 360-4522662 or email artifact@ olypen.com.
Also new this year to the Heritage Days festival will be volunteers from the Clallam County Genealogical Society. They will be on hand at Captain Tâ€™s/The Beanery, 114 and 116 E. Front St., both Saturday and Sunday providing free research help and aiding attendees in building their family trees, Bellerud said. Volunteers from the society will be there 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. â€œBring a name, a date, a place or anything you have, and theyâ€™ll help you,â€? Bellerud said. Heritage Days will still feature festival favorites, such as the county courthouse clock tower tours Saturday and the Below the Street Fair and Kidsâ€™ Carnival from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Rangers guide visitors through the landscape being created by the river following the removal of Elwha Dam, which was completely demolished in March as part of the National Park Service’s $325 million Elwha Restoration Project. The tearing-down of the two dams on the Elwha River — including Glines Canyon Dam, which is expected to be completely removed by next summer — frees the river for passage of salmon, steelhead and other fish. The walks provide a close look at shifting sediments, both old and new vegetation, giant stumps logged a century ago and the river re-establishing itself. For more information, phone 360-452-9191.

The centerpiece of the Quilcene Fair will be the parade. Those participating can begin check-in at 9 a.m. in the lots next to the community center, preparing for an 11 a.m. start time. The parade will proceed down Highway 101 in front of the school moving toward U.S. Bank. Entries include local dignitaries and honorees, floats, vehicles, horses, local groups, candidates, vehicles, animals, logging and old farm equipment. A special participant in the parade will be artist Jacob Kohn, who is donating eight of his murals that were once displayed at the Seattle Aquarium for use in Quilcene as public art. Kohn will ride a float along with two of the murals and will give demonstrations on how he created the art during presentations at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. at the school. The murals are made of Plexiglas with different layers of paintings held between the panels, resulting in a three-dimensional effect.

Free speech suit BRIGHAM CITY, Utah — The American Civil Liberties Union of Utah is suing the town of Brigham City, claiming it is squelching a nondenominational Christian church’s free speech by limiting flier distribution near a Mormon temple. Leaders of Main Street Church said they got a city permit to pass out literature during the temple’s open house Aug. 18 to Sept. 15 but have been barred from staking out the two busiest sides of the building. “The overbreadth of Brigham City’s ‘Free Speech Zone’ Ordinance is breathtaking,” said John Mejia, legal director of the ACLU of Utah. “Under this ordinance, you would arguably have to apply for a permit to engage in nearly any speech in the city. “The ordinance could be used to silence anyone, from two friends debating politics on the sidewalk to a missionary handing out fliers.” Brigham City Attorney Kirk Morgan told KSL that Main Street Church members are upset because they’re being kept away from bus unloading zones, where thousands of people arrive at the temple each day. Morgan said the restrictions are for pedestrian and traffic safety. Main Street, which describes itself as a Bible-based church with a presence in Brigham City since the 1960s, believes Mormonism falls outside of orthodox Christianity.

Four Nordstrom stores due to open in Canada Retailer’s first foreign move THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE — Upscale department store chain Nordstrom Inc. is heading to Canada, starting in the fall of 2014, its first move outside the U.S. The announcement, made at a news conference Thursday in Toronto, comes as a slew of other retailers
flock across the border. The Seattle-based chain will be teaming up with Canadian mall developer Cadillac Fairview to open stores in Calgary, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver. Officials said Nordstrom will move into space vacated by Sears at Pacific Centre in Vancouver, Chinook Centre in Calgary and Rideau Centre in Ottawa. A store will be built at Toronto’s Sherway Gardens. Nordstrom plans to open
the store in Calgary for the fall of 2014. It aims to open the stores in Ottawa and Vancouver in spring of 2015, and Toronto in 2016. Vancouver will get the largest Nordstrom store, with three levels and some 230,000 square feet planned, bigger than a Walmart Supercenter. “This is a significant milestone for this company,” said Blake Nordstrom, president of Nordstrom Inc., during the news conference.

Silvers are hot along Strait METEOROLOGISTS AREN’T SCHEDULING rain on the North Olympic Peninsula for a few more weeks, so outdoor activities are limited for the time being. Saltwater salmon fishing is Lee limited, too, but in the good way Horton — it isn’t difficult to reach the daily catch limit. And with harvesting native silvers becoming legal Saturday, limiting out a boat will be even easier. “Port Angeles and Sekiu are just hot,” Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-6831950) in Sequim said. “Guys can’t miss.” The beach casting is still going strong near Port Townsend, particularly at Fort Flagler and Point Wilson. But the salmon fishing essentially ends there, on the beach. “There haven’t been that many boats going out,” Eric Elliott of Fish N Hole (360-385-7031) in Port Townsend said. “It seems like once they closed chinook, people stopped caring.” Menkal said the coho being caught are getting bigger, consistently weighing 10 and 11 pounds, but the “teeners” are waiting for rain before they shoot down the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The salmon fishery — for both kings and silvers — is still open on the coast, but the number of anglers fishing has dwindled significantly since Labor Day. “There’s fish around, but nobody to catch them,” Joey Lawrence of Big Salmon Resort (360-645-2374) in Neah Bay said. In Marine Areas 3 and 4, the salmon season ends Sunday, Sept. 23. But the LaPush late season area reopens Saturday, Sept. 29 through Sunday, Oct. 14.

PORT ANGELES — The Peninsula College men’s and women’s soccer teams put on a clinic against hapless Skagit Valley on Wednesday at Wally Sigmar Field. The Pirates’ undefeated women’s team (6-0-0 overall) ripped the Cardinals (1-3-2) 13-0 behind hat tricks by Ashlyn Crossan and Alexandra RojasAyala. The Peninsula men, meanwhile, gave longtime coach Andrew Chapman his 100th victory with a 9-0 trouncing of the Cardinals. Chapman is starting his 10th season for the Pirates. After starting 1-16-1 his first year and only winning five games the following year, the program has only gone forward. This is a big milestone in college. “This is a great accomplishment not only for me but for the college itself,” Chapman said. “The guys every year work really hard and helped make this possible. After only winning one game my first year and with Peninsula College being the smallest school in the NWAACC that has men’s soccer, I am not sure I thought reaching 100 wins in 10 seasons could have happened. “With a very supportive administration, it does make my life a lot easier.”
Rivers update The West End rivers still are too low and clear. “You’ve got to want to go pretty bad and not have high expectations al all [to fish right now],” Bob Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods (360374-6330) in Forks said. Gooding said most anglers are waiting until rain raises the rivers to optimal levels. “You don’t want to go when it’s bad,” Gooding said. “I mean, do you want to play golf in the sun or in a raging rain storm?” Then again . . . “Most fishermen aren’t that bright,” Gooding added. The Quilcene River continues to be a bright spot on the rivers scene. Menkal said the rivers are still “loaded” with anglers, and that they are still catching many fish. HORTON/B10

Pirates destroy Cards
SEATTLE — A memo regarding the University of Washington’s information embargo on football injuries was distributed to reporters following practice Wednesday. The new policy, mandated by coach Steve Sarkisian, comes down to this: “Don’t ask, because I won’t tell.” Measures also will be taken to suspend access to any media member who shares an observa-
tion on either strategy or injuries. Withholding information about strategy makes sense: A fourth-down pass play out of a punt formation loses its capacity to surprise the opposition once a newspaper reports “the Huskies spent 15 minutes working on a fake-punt play Wednesday.” But the gag order on injuries is troublesome. If a player — say, Keith Price — is seen watching a Tuesday practice on crutches, it means Huskies fans won’t learn about the quarterback’s inability to start until backup Derrick Brown lines up behind center the following Saturday. As a media relations coordinator for the university was elabo-
rating on the restrictions, my thoughts returned to Dec. 8, 2008, the day Sarkisian was introduced during a pep rally disguised as a press conference. Among the hundreds of happy onlookers inside the Don James Center were the Huskies cheerleaders and marching band, which played “Bow Down to Washington.” Sarkisian’s first word to the crowd was “wow.” He was 34, a rising star going places after establishing himself at USC, where he’d been offensive coordinator for Pete Carroll’s THE ASSOCIATED PRESS perennial national-championCoach Steve Sarkisian and ship contenders.

Now the games count League action opens for teams BY LEE HORTON PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Ignore everything you’ve seen from the North Olympic Peninsula’s football teams in the first two weeks of the season. Forget all the blowouts and shutouts. The real games start now. What you have seen up to this point was in no way an indication of your team’s reality. Then again, I’m sure Neah Bay, Clallam Bay and Crescent aren’t quite on board with the idea of treating their five combined wins, four by blowout margins, lightly. To them, the season started two weeks ago. It’s not their fault everyone else is slow out of the gate. But for everyone else, throw out the scores of the first two weeks. League play begins now. It’s a convenient way to reboot the season. And, probably legitimate.
Football Previews Use Seqium and Port Angeles as examples. Sure, both teams have been thoroughly pounded in their opening games; the Wolves have been outscored 76-0, and the Roughriders 76-7. But both also opened their respective seasons against tough nonleague opponents. Besides, the they aren’t the only slow-starting Olympic League schools. Of the eight teams in the league, five are 0-2 and two are 1-1. Klahowya is the only undefeated team, with both wins being close victories over Peninsula schools Chimacum and Port Townsend. The thinking is that this week will provide a better idea of the true identities of Peninsula teams who have struggled in the “preseason.” Here are the games:
Neah Bay vs. Wishkah Valley Oddly, the potential best game on the Peninsula wasn’t arranged until Thursday afternoon. Lake Quinault backed out of its game with Wishkah Valley (2-0), leaving the Loggers without an opponent this week. The Red Devils (2-0) had a scheduled bye this week, but were looking at the possibility of an unplanned bye next week if Muckleshoot Tribal cancelled its game with Neah Bay, as it has done in the past. Now, two of the top 8-man teams in the state appear set to face off Saturday at 1 p.m. at Lake Quinault’s field. Neah Bay coach Tony McCaulley said Thursday that he is still waiting for official word that there will be referees for the game, but was confident that wouldn’t be a problem. McCaulley credited David Marbut, CEO of NW8man.com, with getting the ball rolling toward setting up the game. TURN
Sequim knocks off PA in tennis PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM — Sequim swept singles and captured No. 2 doubles without dropping a set to edge past archrival Port Angeles 4-3 in boys tennis action Wednesday. The Roughriders won the other three doubles matches but had no answer to the Wolves’ singles strength. “It seems like every time we play Sequim, it’s really close,” Port Angeles coach Brian Gundersen said. Sequim, now 3-1 on the year, lost only 12 games in the three singles matches as the Wolves’ Donovan Lee defeated Alex Brown 6-3, 6-3 at No. 1. At No. 2 singles, Isaiah Dewan dominated Jeremy Choe of Port Angeles by scores of 6-0, 6-1. TURN

Dawgs: Practicing behind curtains CONTINUED FROM B8 A prominent theme that day was replacing the climate of secrecy and suspicion that had distinguished the reign of Sarkisian’s dour predecessor, Tyrone Willingham. “Whatever has gone on before — I wasn’t here,” said Sarkisian, careful to avoid mentioning Willingham’s name. “We’re starting off on a brand new foot with me, with the program. I think, for all the guys, it’s a chance at a new beginning. “We’ve got 105 kids on this football team,” Sarkisian continued, “but they’re not the only ones making this thing and making this experience what it’s going to become. “We want people around us. We want people seeing us.”
Underscoring his commitment to include fans in the Huskies football experience, Sarkisian noted that practices would be open. It was a philosophy he’d picked up from his close friend Carroll: Practice-field attention is healthy for players. How can they expect to compete before 72,000 fans if they’re not exposed to observers during the week? Watching Sarkisian speak while clutching his precious toddler son seemed to permeate the cramped room with the fresh air of hope and change. “It’s going to happen fast,” Sarkisian vowed. The festive introduction, it turns out, began a slow retreat toward the same atmosphere of distrust associated with Willingham.
Those open practices that were supposed to acclimate Sarkisian’s team to scrutiny gradually were closed to the public and the media. By 2012, reporters would be permitted to attend game-week practices only on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. And now comes the edict, issued to reporters but also intended to trickle down to Joseph Everyday Fan, that injuries are none of your darn business. Sarkisian revealed the policy Wednesday, when he was asked about the status of starting left guard Colin Tanigawa. “We’re not going to comment on injuries any more,” he answered. “I’m not. No one in our organization is. “It’s just a competitive disadvantage for us when other teams don’t and we do, so that’s going to

be the road we take.” It’s a road well traveled these days. Sarkisian’s buddy and former USC coaching-staff colleague, Lane Kiffin, refuses to comment on practice-week injuries sustained by the Trojans. Oregon’s Chip Kelly, Stanford’s David Shaw and Washington State’s Mike Leach are similarly reticent. The pattern is curious in the aftermath of the Penn State scandal that tarnished the legacy of the late Joe Paterno. If anything is to be learned from the most dispiriting saga in the history of American sports, it’s the necessity in making college-football programs transparent while reducing the omnipotent control of college-football coaches.
