Phone call led America to bin Laden’s doorstep Aide unknowingly helps find Osama

When one of Osama bin Laden’s most trusted aides picked up the phone last year, he unknowingly led U.S. pursuers to the doorstep of his boss, the world’s most wanted terrorist. That phone call, recounted by a U.S. official after announcement of bin Laden’s death, ended a years-long search for bin Laden’s personal courier, the key break in a worldwide manhunt. The courier, in turn, led U.S. intelligence to a walled compound in northeast Pakistan, where a team of Navy SEALs shot bin Laden to death early Monday Pakistan time (Sunday PDT).

Violent final minutes The violent final minutes were the culmination of years of intelligence work. Inside the CIA team hunting bin Laden, it always was clear that bin Laden’s vulnerability was his couriers. He was too smart to let al-Qaida foot soldiers, or even his senior commanders, know his hideout.

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, far left, join members of the national security team as they watch an update on the mission against Osama bin Laden in the Situation Room of the White House on Sunday. But if he wanted to get his messages out, somebody had to carry them, someone bin Laden trusted with his life. In a secret CIA prison in Eastern Europe years ago, al-Qaida’s No. 3 leader, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, gave authori-

ties the nicknames of several of bin Laden’s couriers, four former U.S. intelligence officials said. Those names were among thousands of leads the CIA was pursuing. Turn


PORT ANGELES — About 11 years after their brush with an Osama bin Laden-trained terrorist, two of the men who helped capture Ahmed Ressam expressed relief Monday at the death of the al-Qaida leader. Many people on the North Olympic Peninsula read bin Laden’s name for the first time in 1999 after Ressam drove off the MV Coho ferry with explosives. On Dec. 14, 1999, Ressam, carrying a fake Canadian passport bearing the name Ressam Benni Noris and driving a late-model Chrysler rented in Vancouver, B.C., rode the Coho from Victoria to Port Angeles. Ressam drove onto U.S. soil with 100 pounds of explosive materials hidden in the trunk’s wheel well. Millennium celebrations at Seattle’s Space Needle were closed to the public as a security measure.





ONP to try second all-winter run on Ridge Park studies data to evaluate daytime tourist popularity By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News

A thin layer of snow covers Hurricane Ridge Road in February as a motorist drives down the mountain.

PORT ANGELES — If the money comes through in time, Olympic National Park officials hope to have no interruption between summer and winter access to Hurricane Ridge late this year. Deputy Superintendent Todd Suess, speaking to about 70 people at the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce weekly luncheon meeting Monday, said the road remained open 78 out of 105 possible days during the fall-winter season — the first in which Hurricane Ridge Road was plowed seven days a week. “We did pretty well until about midMarch when we kept getting slammed with snow and the winds just kept on blowing hard,” Suess said.

Throughout the new seven-day week — Mondays through Sundays — a total of 6,990 vehicles traversed the road, he said. Fridays through Sundays — or what used to be the typical season — the number shot up to 4,378. Until this year, the mile-high ski and snowplay area 17 miles south of Port Angeles was open only Fridays through Sundays.

Fundraising effort A fundraising effort spearheaded by the city of Port Angeles and the Chamber of Commerce raised more than $75,000 from local business, civic organizations and individuals to keep the road open weekdays. Contributions included $20,000 from the city of Port Angeles, $20,000 from Clallam County and $5,000 from the city of Sequim, The Interior Department is providing $250,000 in matching funds on a trial basis for up to three years.

PORT ANGELES — Elise Beuke had never played a grand piano before. But faced with the instrument Saturday night at the first-ever Springfest Talent Show, she took to it, accompanied herself as she sang an original song and won the grand prize. And so Beuke, 13, will appear on the main stage during the Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts, the cavalcade of music, dance and

other art that stretches over Memorial Day weekend. The Sequim teenager was 15th of the 16 acts competing for the slot during the talent show at the Port Angeles High School auditorium. “I thought I would just go sing and have fun,” she said Monday. “I never thought I was going to win.” Beuke also went home with a $100 honorarium, a trophy and thoughts about what she’ll play when she steps up on the stage at the Vern Burton Community Center at 11:45 a.m. Sunday, May 29 — day three of the four-day Juan de Fuca Festival.

RENE EMILIO PONCE, 64, a Salvadoran army general and former defense minister accused of ordering the 1989 killings of six Jesuit priests and two others during the country’s civil war, died Monday. Mr. Ponce — who faced an investigation in Spain for crimes against humanity Mr. Ponce — died of in 2003 heart failure in a hospital in San Salvador, El Salvador, the Defense Department said in a statement. A U.N. truth commission report released in 1992 found Mr. Ponce ordered the killings of the Jesuit priests, their housekeeper and her daughter when Mr. Ponce was a colonel in the Salvadoran army. The priests, who worked at the Jesuit-run Universidad Centroamericana, had been suspected of sympathizing with the country’s leftist rebel movement. A U.S. congressional investigation found they had been rousted from their beds and shot by soldiers in the killings, which sparked international outrage. Mr. Ponce was promoted to general the year after the massacre. He was defense minister from 1990 to 1993. In 2009, Spanish Judge Eloy Velasco ordered an investigation of Mr. Ponce and 13 other Salvadoran military officials accused of involvement in the killings. No charges were ever filed against Mr. Ponce.

EMILIO “MILLITO” NAVARRO, 105, believed to be the oldest living professional baseball player, died Saturday in his Caribbean homeland of Puerto Rico. The former Negro Leagues star died while surrounded by relatives, said a statement from Mr. Navarro his family. in 2010 He was hospitalized Wednesday in the southern coastal city of Ponce after having a heart attack. Mr. Navarro was elected to the Puerto Rico Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992 and the Puerto Rican Sports Hall of Fame in 2004. The cheerful 5-foot, 5-inch infielder was known for his baserunning skills and became the first Puerto Rican to play in the Negro Leagues. Mr. Navarro played in the Dominican Republic with the Escogido Lions in the late 1920s and in Venezuela with Magallanes and other teams in the 1930s. In Puerto Rico, he was the second baseman for the Ponce Lions for nearly 20 years. He was a shortstop and leadoff hitter for the New

He warmed up his arm, waved his hat and made a 30-foot toss on the fly to catcher Jorge Posada. Asked how the sport had changed, Mr. Navarro’s eyes widened, and he mentioned high salaries. “I made $25 a week,” he said through a translator. In an interview last August with The Associated Press, he said he did not have any secrets to a long life, but he enjoyed dancing and the occasional glass of whiskey. Before he became a baseball player, Mr. Navarro had excelled in track and was known as a local champion in the 100meter, the long jump and the 120-yard high hurdles. After retiring from professional baseball, Mr. Navarro worked as a coach and athletic teacher at schools in Ponce and Caguas.

Briefly: Nation 2 privates killed in Korea receive Medal of Honor WASHINGTON — During a somber ceremony Monday in the White House East Room, President Barack Obama bestowed the Medal of Honor posthumously on two Army privates — Anthony T. Kaho‘ohanohano of Pukalani, Hawaii, and Henry Svehla of Belleville, N.J. — that were killed in the Korean War. “Today, we remember them with the highest military decoration that our nation can bestow,” Obama said, describing the pair as “hometown kids who stood tall in America’s uniform.” Kaho‘ohanohano was in charge of a machine-gun squad with Company H, 17th Infrantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division on Sept. 1, 1951, when they were overrun by enemy forces. He ordered the squad to fall back and seek cover, then gathered up some grenades and fought the enemy alone. When his ammunition ran out, he fought them hand-tohand until he was killed. Svehla, a rifleman with Company F, 32nd Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division, charged enemy positions when his platoon began to falter under heavy fire June 12, 1952. He destroyed enemy positions and inflicted heavy casualties, but when an enemy grenade landed among a group of his comrades, he threw himself on the grenade and was fatally wounded.

Debt limit debate WASHINGTON — It’s all

but impossible to glean from the political rhetoric, but government borrowing will grow by trillions of dollars over the next decade if the budget backed by House Republicans translates into law. And by a few trillion more if President Barack Obama gets his way. Call it the unpleasant truth behind a political struggle over raising the debt limit that is expected to intensify as lawmakers returned Monday from a two-week break. While polls show voters angry over the debt, and politicians support a goal of paying it down, the two principal deficitreduction plans would merely restrain its growth for the next decade — the Republicans’ significantly more so than the president’s.

Tomatoes recalled TRACY, Calif. — A Florida tomato grower is voluntarily recalling its grape tomatoes after a sample tested positive for salmonella. Six L’s Packing Co.

The Immokalee, Fla.-based company said the recalled product was packed April 11 under the Cherry Berry lot code DW-H in clam shells or 20-pound cardboard containers. The tomatoes were distributed to California, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia, as well as Canada. The contamination was found by a U.S. Department of Agriculture inspector at a New York distributor, according to Six L’s. The Associated Press

Briefly: World Conservatives win majority in Canada election TORONTO — Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper won his coveted majority government in elections Monday that also marked a shattering defeat for the opposition Liberals, preliminary results showed. Harper, who took office in 2006, has won two elections but until now had never held a majority of Parliament’s 308 seats, forcing him to rely on the opposition to pass legislation. While Harper’s hold on the 308-member Parliament has been tenuous during his fiveyear tenure, he has managed to nudge an instinctively centerleft country to the right. He has gradually lowered sales and corporate taxes, avoided climate change legislation, promoted Arctic sovereignty, upped military spending and extended Canada’s military mission in Afghanistan. Elections Canada reported preliminary results on its website, giving the Conservatives 164 seats, which will give Harper four years of uninterrupted government.

Libyans want revenge TRIPOLI, Libya — Libyans shouting for revenge buried Moammar Gadhafi’s second youngest son to the thundering sound of anti-aircraft fire Monday, as South Africa warned that the NATO bombing that killed him would only bring more violence. Libya’s leader did not attend

the tumultuous funeral of 29-year-old Seif al-Arab, but older brothers Seif al-Islam and Mohammed paid their respects, thronged by a crowd of several thousand. Jostling to get closer to the coffin, draped with a green Libyan flag, mourners flashed victory signs and chanted “Revenge, revenge for you, Libya.” Three of Gadhafi’s grandchildren, an infant and two toddlers, also died in Saturday’s attack, which NATO said targeted one of the regime’s command and control centers. Gadhafi and his wife were in the compound at the time but escaped unharmed, Libyan officials said, accusing the alliance of trying to assassinate the Libyan leader.

Ex-president cleared TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras — A Honduran court dismissed the last two remaining charges Monday against former President Manuel Zelaya, removing a key obstacle to his return to the country. The decision could also smooth the way for the country’s return to the Organization of American States, which expelled Honduras following the June 2009 coup that ousted Zelaya. OAS Secretary General Jose Miguel Insulza said in a statement from Washington that “this puts an end to the uncertainty over the former president’s legal situation. “The main condition for Honduras’ return to the organization has been fulfilled,” he wrote in the statement.

America celebrates bin Laden’s demise Al-Qaida makes vow to avenge his death By Chris Brummitt and David Espo The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Osama bin Laden, the elusive terror mastermind killed by Navy SEALs in an intense firefight, was hunted down based on information first gleaned years ago from detainees at secret CIA prison sites in Eastern Europe, officials disclosed Monday. The U.S. said a DNA match proved his identity, and millions of Americans rejoiced. After the gunfire, U.S. forces swept bin Laden’s fortified compound in Pakistan and left with a trove of hard drives, DVDs and other documents that officials said the CIA was already poring over. The hope: clues leading to his presumed successor, al-Qaida No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahiri. “The world is safer. It is a better place because of the death of Osama bin Laden,” declared President Barack Obama, hours after U.S. forces killed the al-Qaida leader. They then ferried the body out for a quick burial at sea.

Bin Laden’s death after a decade on the run unloosed a national wave of euphoria mixed with remembrance for the thousands who died in the Sept. 11 2001, terror attacks. Crowds celebrated throughout the night outside the White House and at ground zero in Lower Manhattan where the Twin Towers once stood.

Students spill into streets Thousands of students at Penn State University and in other college towns spilled into the streets and set off firecrackers to mark the moment. “For my family and I, it’s good, it’s desirable, it’s right,” said Mike Low of Batesville, Ark., whose daughter Sara was a flight attendant aboard the hijacked plane that was flown into the World Trade Center North Tower. “It certainly brings an ending to a major quest for all of us.” Halfway around the world, a prominent al-Qaida commentator vowed revenge for bin Laden’s death. “Woe to his enemies. By God,

we will avenge the killing of the Sheik of Islam,” he wrote under his online name Assad al-Jihad2. “Those who wish that jihad has ended or weakened, I tell them: Let us wait a little bit.” U.S. officials conceded the risk of renewed attack. The terrorists “almost certainly will attempt to avenge” bin Laden’s death, CIA Director Leon Panetta wrote in a memo that congratulated the agency for its role in the operation. “Bin Laden is dead. Al-Qaida is not.” There were questions, as well, about Pakistan’s role in bin Laden’s years in hiding. Both Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said cooperation from the Pakistani government had helped lead U.S. forces to the compound where he died. But John Brennan, White House counter-terrorism adviser, told reporters it was inconceivable that the terrorist fugitive didn’t have some support in Pakistan, where his hideout had been custom built six years ago in a city with a heavy military presence.

Army Corps explodes large section of Missouri levee By Jim Suhr And Jim Salter The Associated Press

WYATT, Mo. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers exploded a large section of a Mississippi River levee Monday in a desperate attempt to protect an Illinois town from rising floodwaters. The corps said the break in the Birds Point levee would help tiny Cairo, Ill., by diverting up to 4 feet of water off the river. Just before Monday night’s explosions, river levels at Cairo were at historic highs and creating pressure on the floodwall protecting the town. For the Missouri side, the blasts were likely unleashing a muddy torrent into empty farm fields and around evacuated homes in Mississippi County.

Quick Read

Brief but bright orange flashes could be seen above the river as the explosions went off just after 10 p.m. The blasts lasted only about two seconds. Darkness kept reporters, who were more than a half mile off the river, from seeing how fast the water was moving into the farmland. Engineers carried out the blast after spending hours pumping liquid explosives into the levee. More explosions were planned for overnight and midday today, though most of the damage was expected to be done by the first blast. But questions remain about whether breaking open the levee would provide the relief needed, and how much water the blast would divert from the Mississippi

River as more rain was forecast to fall on the region today. The seemingly endless rain has overwhelmed rivers and strained levees, including the one protecting Cairo, at the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. Flooding concerns also were widespread Monday in western Tennessee, where tributaries were backed up due to heavy rains and the bulging Mississippi River. Streets in suburban Memphis were blocked, and some 175 people filled a church gymnasium to brace for potential record flooding. The break at Birds Point was expected to do little to ease the flood dangers there, Tennessee officials said.

A 10-by-15-foot piece broke off, and Poland hopped on. His friends tossed him a milk crate to sit on and the lid of a cooler to paddle.

AUTHORITIES SEARCHED AN Arkansas wilderness area Monday for a group of Louisiana Boy Scouts believed to be stranded behind rain-swollen waterways. No one has heard from the six Scouts and two troop leaders since Thursday, when they arrived at the Albert Pike Recreation Area, a remote area with little cellphone coverage. State police dispatched a helicopter to help in the search Monday, but winds were too strong for it to be flown safely. The Scouts were experienced backpackers for their age — 14 on average — and equipped with survival skills. It was believed they camped along the 26.8-mile Eagle Rock Loop above the flood plain.

NUTCRACKER MAN DIDN’T eat nuts after all. After a half-century of referring to an ancient pre-human as “Nutcracker Man” because of his large teeth and powerful jaw, scientists now concluded that he actually chewed grasses instead. The study “reminds us that in paleontology, things are not always as they seem,” commented Peter S. Ungar, chairman of anthropology at the University of Arkansas. The new report, by Thure E. Cerling of the University of Utah and colleagues, is published in today’s edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

CANADIAN TWITTER USERS defied an official ban on posting federal election results before all the polls closed, running the risk of a hefty fine if the government enforces the law. The 73-year-old Elections Act bans reporting early results in order to prevent voters in the East from influencing choices in the West. Polls close in Newfoundland twoand-a-half hours ahead of central Canada and much of the West, and three hours ahead of British Columbia. But even before polling stations closed in western Canada, results from eastern provinces were leaking out on Twitter.

‘A lot of explaining to do’ Bin Laden hideout raises suspicion of Pakistan in U.S. By Kathy Gannon and Nahal Toosi

The Associated Press

ABBOTTABAD, Pakistan — Osama bin Laden made his final stand in a small Pakistani city where three army regiments with thousands of soldiers are based not far from the capital — a location that is increasing suspicions in Washington that Islamabad may have been sheltering him. The U.S. acted alone in Monday’s helicopter raid, did not inform Pakistan until it was over and pointedly did not thank Pakistan at the end of a wildly successful operation. All this suggests more strain ahead in a relationship that was already suffering because of U.S. accusations that the Pakistanis are supporting Afghan militants and Pakistani anger over American drone attacks and spy activity. Pakistani intelligence agencies are normally very sharp in sniffing out the presence of foreigners in small cities. For years, Western intelligence had said bin Laden was most likely holed up in a cave along the Pakistan-Afghan border, a remote region of soaring mountains and thick forests where the Pakistan army has little presence. But the 10-year hunt for the world’s most-wanted man ended in a whitewashed, three-story house in a middle-class area of Abbottabad, a leafy resort city of 400,000 people nestled in pineforested hills less than 35 miles from the national capital, Islamabad. Sen. Carl Levin, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said bin Laden’s location meant Pakistan had “a lot of explaining to do.” A senior Pakistan intelligence official dismissed speculation that bin Laden was being protected. “We don’t explain it. We just did not know — period,” he said, on condition his name not be released to the media.

The compound It was unclear how long bin Laden had been holed up in the house with members of his family. From the outside, the house resembled many others in Pakistan and even had a flag flying from a pole in the garden, apparently a Pakistani one. It had high, barbed-wire topped walls, few windows and was located in a neighborhood of smaller houses, shops, dusty litterlined streets and empty plots used for growing vegetables. Neighbors said large Landcruisers and other expensive cars were seen driving into the compound, but they had no indication that foreigners were living inside.

Pakistan army soldiers and police officers on Monday patrol past the house, background, where it is believed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden lived in Abbottabad. The compound, which an Obama administration official said was “custom built to hide someone of significance,” was about a half-mile away from the Kakul Military Academy, one of several military installations in the bustling, hill-ringed town. “Personally, I feel that he must have thought it was the safest area,” said Asad Munir, a former station chief of Pakistan’s InterServices Intelligence agency, or ISI, in the northwest. “Abbottabad is a place no one would expect him to live.”

Major source of mistrust Suspicions that Pakistan harbors militants have been a major source of mistrust between the CIA and Pakistan’s ISI, though the two agencies have cooperated in the arrests of al-Qaida leaders since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, including several in towns and cities outside the border area. “Why had Pakistan not spotted he is living in a nice tourist resort just outside Islamabad?” asked Gareth Price, a researcher at Chatham House think tank in London. “It seems he was being protected by Pakistan. If that is the case, this will be hard for the two sides to carry on working together. “Unless Pakistan can explain why they didn’t know, it makes relations difficult,” Price said. Relations between Pakistan’s main intelligence agency and the CIA had been very strained in

recent months after a CIA contractor shot and killed two Pakistanis in January, bringing Pakistani grievances out into the open. Since then, a Pakistani official has said that joint operations had been stopped, and the agency was demanding the Americans cut down on drone strikes in the border area. The U.S. has fired hundreds of drones into the border regions since 2008, taking out senior alQaida leaders in a tactic seen by many in Washington as vital to keeping the militant network and allied groups living in safe havens on the back foot. While tensions may run high, it is unlikely that either nation could afford to sever the link completely. Pakistan has nuclear weapons, and the U.S. needs Islamabad to begin its withdrawal from Afghanistan this year as planned. Pakistan relies heavily on the United States for military and civilian aid.

Karzai’s accusations Some of the strongest allegations about ISI involvement in sheltering bin Laden were made in Afghanistan, where President Hamid Karzai has said repeatedly that more of the American focus should be across the border in Pakistan. “For years, we have said that the fight against terrorism is not in Afghan villages and houses,” said Karzai. “It is in safe havens, and today that was shown

to be true.” There was no evidence of direct ISI collusion, and American officials did not make any such allegations.

Taliban links Last month, Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the U.S. joint chiefs of staff, accused Pakistan’s military-run spy service of maintaining links with the Haqqani network, a major Afghan Taliban faction. Hours later, a Pakistani army statement rejected what it called “negative propaganda” by the United States, while army chief Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani said his troops’ multiple offensives against insurgent groups in the northwest are evidence of Pakistan’s resolve to defeat terrorism. Kayani also told graduating cadets at the Kakul academy that their force had “broken the backbone” of the militants. But Pakistan’s government and army are very sensitive to concerns that they are working under the orders of America and allowing U.S. forces to operate here. One Islamist party staged a protest against bin Laden’s killing, but there was no sign of a major reaction on the Pakistani street. The U.S. closed its embassy in Islamabad and its consulates in the cities of Lahore, Karachi and Peshawar on Monday for fear of unrest.

Burial at sea criticized by Islamic scholars The Associated Press

CAIRO — Muslim clerics said Monday that Osama bin Laden’s burial at sea was a violation of Islamic tradition that may further provoke militant calls for revenge attacks against American targets. Although there appears to be some room for debate over the burial — as with many issues within the faith — a wide range of senior Islamic scholars interpreted it as a humiliating disregard for the standard Muslim practice of placing the body in a grave with the head pointed

toward the holy city of Mecca. According to Islamic teachings, the highest honor to be bestowed on the dead is giving the deceased a swift burial, preferably before sunset. Those who die while traveling at sea can have their bodies committed to the bottom of the ocean if they are far off the coast, according to Islamic tradition. Bin Laden’s burial at sea “runs contrary to the principles of Islamic laws, religious values and humanitarian customs,” said Sheik Ahmed al-Tayeb, the grand

Imam of Cairo’s al-Azhar mosque, Sunni Islam’s highest seat of learning. A radical cleric in Lebanon, Omar Bakri Mohammed, said, “The Americans want to humiliate Muslims through this burial, and I don’t think this is in the interest of the U.S. administration.” A U.S. official said the burial decision was made after concluding that it would have been difficult to find a country willing to accept the remains. There was also speculation about worry that a grave site

could have become a rallying point for militants. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive national security matters. President Barack Obama said the remains had been handled in accordance with Islamic custom, which requires speedy burial, and the Pentagon later said the body was placed into the waters of the northern Arabian Sea after adhering to traditional Islamic procedures — including washing the corpse — aboard the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson.

WASHINGTON — Knowing there would be disbelievers, the U.S. said it used convincing means to confirm Osama bin Laden’s identity during and after the firefight that killed him. But the mystique that surrounded the terrorist chieftain in life is persisting in death. Was it really him? How do we know? Where are the pictures? Already, those questions are spreading in Pakistan and surely beyond. In the absence of photos and with his body given up to the sea, many people don’t believe bin Laden — the Great Emir to some, the fabled escape artist of the Tora Bora mountains to foe and friend alike — is really dead. U.S. officials are balancing that skepticism with the sensitivities that might be inflamed by showing images they say they have of the dead al-Qaida leader and video of his burial at sea. Still, it appeared likely that photographic evidence would be produced. “We are going to do everything we can to make sure that nobody has any basis to try to deny that we got Osama bin Laden,” John Brennan, President Barack Obama’s counterterrorism adviser, said Monday. He said the U.S. will “share what we can because we want to make sure that not only the American people but the world understand exactly what happened.”

Satisfactory evidence So far, the U.S. has cited evidence that satisfied the Navy SEAL force, and at least most of the world, that they had the right man in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The helicopter-borne raiding squad that swarmed the luxury compound identified bin Laden by appearance. A woman in the compound who was identified as his wife was said to have called out bin Laden’s name in the melee. Officials produced a quick DNA match from his remains that they said established bin Laden’s identity, even absent the other techniques, with 99.9 percent certainty. U.S. officials also said bin Laden was identified through photo comparisons and other methods. Tellingly, an al-Qaida spokesman, in vowing vengeance against America, called him a martyr, offering no challenge to the U.S. account of his death. Even so, it’s almost inevitable that the bin Laden mythology will not end with the bullet in his head. The burial from an aircraft carrier in the North Arabian Sea was videotaped aboard the ship, according to a senior defense official who spoke on condition of anonymity because a decision on whether to release the video was not final.

Movement not likely to die with its leader By Adam Goldman and Matt Apuzzo

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — U.S. intelligence officials believe al-Qaida will have a hard time recovering from the death of its murderous leader, Osama bin Laden. After all, his heir apparent, Ayman al-Zawahri, is a harsh, divisive figure who lacks the charisma and mystique that bin Laden used to hold together alQaida’s various factions. Without bin Laden’s iconic figure running al-Qaida, intelligence officials believe the group could splinter and weaken. But if there is one thing alQaida has proved it is able to do, it is adapt to adversity. Bin Laden’s death, by an American bullet to the head in a raid on his fortified Pakistani hideout early Monday, came 15 years after he declared war on the United States and nearly a decade after he carried out the worst attacks on U.S. soil. But the al-Qaida network he leaves behind is far different from the one behind the World Trade

Center and Pentagon attacks. Today, al-Qaida’s core in Pakistan is constantly on the run, hiding from U.S. Predator drones. Communication is slow. The ability to plan, finance and carry out attacks has been greatly reduced. Al-Qaida franchises have sprung up in Yemen, Iraq and Algeria, where terrorists fight local grievances under the global banner of jihad. In that regard, bin Laden’s death could be far more damaging psychologically than operationally.

al-Qaida operations for years as bin Laden cut himself off from the outside world. There were no phone or Internet lines running into his compound. And he used a multilayered courier system to pass messages. It was old-fashioned and safe, but it made taking part in any operation practically impossible. Bin Laden had been reduced to

a figurehead by the time U.S. commandoes eliminated him, counterterrorism experts say. Today, the greatest terrorist threat to the U.S. is now considered to be the al-Qaida franchise in Yemen, far from al-Qaida’s core in Pakistan. The Yemen branch almost took down a U.S.-bound airliner on Christmas 2009 and nearly deto-

nated explosives aboard two U.S. cargo planes last fall. Those operations were carried out without any direct involvement from bin Laden. Al-Qaida’s leadership in Yemen also has managed to do what bin Laden never could: adapt the message for Western audiences and package it in English. The terrorist magazine Inspire

coaches would-be bombers on how to make explosives. It teaches them that they don’t need to seek training in Pakistan or Yemen, where they could be intercepted by U.S. spies. Rather, they are instructed to become one-man terror cells that pick targets and carry out attacks without any instruction from alQaida’s core leadership. Bin Laden was more of a symbol than anything else, said Qaribut Ustad Saeed, a longtime member of the Hezb-e-Islami rebel group led by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, whom the U.S. has labeled a terrorist. Saeed is currently a member of the Afghan High Peace Council set up to try to negotiate a peace settlement with the Taliban. Bin Laden’s loss will be an inspirational one, rather than an operational one, he said. “Osama bin Laden became a symbol and inspiration for the young Muslim extremists,” Saeed said. “But the group has expanded into a worldwide movement that is now bigger than bin Laden,” he said.

Mission praised as pain remains For 9/11 families, closure ‘really . . . it doesn’t exist’ By Larry Neumeister The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Nearly 10 years after his wife was killed at the World Trade Center, Charles Wolf still falls asleep each night on one side of his bed. On Monday, news of the death of the man who helped orchestrate that emptiness brought Wolf a muted joy. He declared himself glad it was finally over — still aware that, for him, it never really can be. “This is a feeling of happiness but not jump-up-and-down happiness,” said Wolf, who lost his wife, Katherine, in the attacks. “The idea of closure is something that really, really — it doesn’t exist, to tell you the truth.” Family members of those lost on Sept. 11 reflected Monday on a decade of grief that cannot be erased by any worldly victory.

Some sense of relief Still, the death of the shadowy figure who had taken pleasure in their sorrow brought some a sense of relief. “I’d like to think that all the people who were murdered on Sept. 11 are celebrating,” said Maureen Santora, whose firefighter son, Christopher, was killed in the collapsed towers. She said she knows her son, who died at age 23, would have been “dancing in the streets” at word of bin Laden’s death. “I can hear him up in heaven yelling and screaming,” she said. “I can see him being just thrilled.”

But she, too, said there would be no closure for her. Instead, “There will be a hole in my heart until the day I die,” she said. When he heard of bin Laden’s death, Mike Low went into the bedroom that had belonged to his daughter Sara before the flight attendant was killed aboard American Airlines Flight 11. He sat down in front of a glass case holding his daughter’s remains, and he told her the news. “For my family and I, it’s good, it’s desirable, it’s right,” said the Batesville, Ark., resident. “It certainly brings an ending to a major quest for all of us.”

Haunted by thoughts Whatever the feelings brought up by the close of the hunt for bin Laden, victory was absent for Gene Yancey, who remains haunted by thoughts of the last minutes of his daughter Kathryn L. LaBorie, who was the head flight attendant on United Airlines Flight 175. “Justice has prevailed, I guess,” said the Colorado Springs, Colo., resident. “It’s good in a lot of ways, and I’m glad they got him, but I’m so sad about my daughter.” Lifelong Catholic Barbara Minervino found herself struggling yet again with a central tenet of her faith: forgiveness. “As I lay my head down on the pillow last night, I said, ‘Lord, are you really going to forgive him?’ I don’t want to. I don’t know that I can ever forgive him,” said the Middletown, N.J., resident, whose

I can’t.” Others relished what felt like a touch of retribution after years of delay. “I would hope that Osama bin Laden was subject to the same brutal and prolonged death that my son and all the other victims had on 9/11,” said Sally Regenhard, whose firefighter son, Christian, died at the World Trade Center. And for some, bin Laden’s

death was not an end but only a milestone in a lifelong undertaking. “The story of 9/11 is not over,” said Anthoula Katsimatides, who on Monday joined public officials at the World Trade Center site, where her brother John perished. It remains important, she said, “to tell everyone, future generations, of what happened that day.” Wolf said he first learned of the news when a friend telephoned him Sunday night, saying excitedly: “You know that guy that killed your wife. They got him!” After that, he said, he had chills for an hour or two — a “tin-

gling, tingling all over me.” “There’s one man, there’s one piece of evil energy — tremendously evil energy — that is off of this planet,” Wolf said. “It is out of this physical realm, and God will throw his soul in hell, the depths of hell. And you can be sure of that. “There’s no court on earth that could have done what the final judge has done,” Wolf said. Still, none of that changes the lingering sense of absence at night, as he makes room for the woman who is no longer there. “That other side is empty still,” he said. “I still miss her.”

One man became a particular interest for the agency when another detainee, Abu Faraj alLibi, told interrogators that when he was promoted to succeed Mohammed as al-Qaida’s operational leader he received the word through a courier. Only bin Laden would have given al-Libi that promotion, CIA officials believed. If they could find that courier, they’d find bin Laden. The revelation that intelligence gleaned from the CIA’s so-called black sites helped kill bin Laden was seen as vindication for many intelligence officials who have been repeatedly investigated and criticized for their involvement in a program that involved the harshest interrogation methods in U.S. history. “We got beat up for it, but those efforts led to this great day,” said Marty Martin, a retired CIA officer who for years led the hunt for bin Laden.

This will be a big morale boost to our troops in Afghanistan and to our efforts around the world at containing terrorism,” Dicks told the Kitsap Sun. The congressman also said he was glad the U.S. was able to get bin Laden’s body so that potential doubters and bin Laden’s followers will have proof that he is dead.

Said Brennan: “The president had to evaluate the strength of that information, and then made what I believe was one of the most gutsiest calls of any president in recent memory.” Obama tapped two dozen members of the Navy’s elite SEAL Team Six to carry out a raid with surgical accuracy. Before dawn Monday morning, a pair of helicopters left Jalalabad in eastern Afghanistan. The choppers entered Pakistani airspace using sophisticated technology intended to evade that country’s radar systems, a U.S. official said. Officially, it was a kill-or-capture mission, since the U.S. doesn’t kill unarmed people trying to surrender.

Not going to surrender But it was clear from the beginning that whoever was behind those walls had no intention of surrendering, two U.S. officials said. The helicopters lowered into the compound, dropping the SEALs behind the walls. No shots were fired, but shortly after the team hit the ground, one of the helicopters came crashing down and rolled onto its side for reasons the government has yet to explain. None of the SEALs was injured, however, and the mission continued uninterrupted. With the CIA and White House monitoring the situation in real time — presumably by live satellite feed or video carried by the SEALs — the team stormed the compound. The SEALs killed bin Laden with a bullet to the head. Using the call sign for his visual identification, one of the soldiers communicated that “Geronimo” had been killed in action, according to a U.S. official.

Disbelief: Kernels of motivation If that satisfies U.S. goals and its sense of justice, Brad Sagarin, a psychologist at Northern Illinois University who studies persuasion, said the rapid disposition of the body “would certainly be a rich sort of kernel for somebody to grasp onto if they were motivated to disbelieve this.”

Former Seattle reporter goes missing in Syria The Associated Press

BEIRUT — An AlJazeera journalist has not been heard from since she entered Syria on Friday to report on the political turmoil there, the Arab satellite TV station said Monday. A regional official of the Committee to Protect Journalists said there was “strong evidence” to suggest the journalist, Dorothy Parvaz, had been detained on arrival at Damascus airport on a flight from Qatar. She has U.S., Iranian and Canadian citizenship, and formerly was a reporter and columnist for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. “We are deeply concerned for Dorothy’s safety, security and well-being,” Al-Jazeera said in a statement. “We are requesting full cooperation from the Syrian authorities to determine what happened at the airport, what her current location is and the status of her health.” Parvaz joined Al-Jazeera in 2010 and recently reported on the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.

The station said she graduated from the University of British Columbia, obtained a master’s from Arizona University and held journalism fellowships at both Harvard and Cambridge universities. Mohamed Abdel Dayem, Middle East and North Africa program coordinator at the Committee to Protect Journalists, told Al-Jazeera there was evidence to suggest Parvaz had been detained at the airport. “Obviously, we are worried for the safety of Dorothy, specifically, as we are for numerous other journalists who are in government custody right now,” Dayem said. Some Syrian journalists have been in custody for weeks as part of an effort by the Syrian government limit media coverage of the unrest, he said. Once-unimaginable protests are posing the most serious challenge to four decades of rule by the Assad family in one of the most repressive countries in the Middle East.

he company said 8,500 people in the U.S. were diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease in 2010, and it said about 30 percent of patients relapse or don’t respond to primary chemotherapy.

BOTHELL — Seattle Genetics Inc. said Monday the Food and Drug Administration is now reviewing its experimental cancer drug as a treatment for Hodgkin’s disease and a type of lymphoma. The company said the FDA will make separate decisions on the two applications by Aug. 30. Seattle Genetics filed for marketing approval of the drug, called brentuximab, as a treatment for patients whose cancer did not respond to other drugs or has returned after previous treatment.

meaning that if it is approved, the company will have up to seven years of marketing exclusivity. Orphan drug status is given to treatments for rare diseases and to diseases that have few available treatments.

Seattle Genetics said brentuximab vedotin targets a protein found in Hodgkin’s disease and other T-cell cancers and blood cancers. The company is developing the drug with Millennium Pharmaceuticals, a unit of Japanese drugmaker Takeda. The companies are sharing development costs in most countries. Seattle Genetics holds the U.S. and Canadian marketing rights, and Takeda has right to sell the drug in the rest of the world.

Rare cancers Hodgkin’s disease and systemic anaplastic large cell lymphoma are both rare cancers that affect the lymphatic system. While both are treatable with chemotherapy, Seattle Genetics said the large portion of patients who do not respond to chemotherapy have few other treatment options. The company said the brentuximab will receive orphan drug status as a treatment for both cancers,

SPOKANE — Preparing for a “worst case” state budget, Spokane Public Schools administrators have issued 238 layoff notices. The list includes 72 elementary school teachers, 42 high school and middle school teachers, 28 specialeducation teachers and 55 counselors. The Spokesman-Review said the district faces a budget shortfall of between $9 million and $12 million. By union contract, the deadline for notifying certified employees of their employment status is May 15, so the district had to move forward with layoff notices even though the Washington Legislature is still working on a final budget. School officials said a reduction of 150 positions would likely close the $12 million budget gap. But the district decided to issue more notices than needed to give the board flexibility in deciding which positions to cut.

Film explores issues, future of education Chimacum only 1 of 4 schools in state selected for screening By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News

CHIMACUM — “Race to Nowhere,” a film exploring current issues and the future of education will be shown Tuesday, May 10, at Chimacum Middle School — one of only four schools in the state to be chosen for screening. The film, which was originally released in 2009, will screen at 6 p.m. at 91 West Valley Road. Teacher Al Gonzalez

applied to have the film brought to Chimacum after he heard about it. “Around the time that ‘Waiting for Superman’ was coming out in theaters, there was a lot of chatter on Twitter about the one-sidedness of that movie,” Gonzalez said. “Through my personal learning network on Twitter, I heard about another movie that was like the other side of the story. “So I looked it up. ‘Race to Nowhere’ was not coming out theaters any time soon.

It is being screened all over the country in schools so that communities can start discussing what’s most important for their children. I wanted that discussion to happen here in Chimacum. “I think with all the problems facing our state and country and the way education is headed, these types of discussion at the local level are very necessary.”

“The way I see it is that they are pretty much polar opposites,” Gonzalez said. “‘Waiting for Superman’ puts blame on America’s teachers and figures that getting rid of teacher’s unions is the way to get rid of bad teachers. With bad teachers out of the way test scores will rise. “So in ‘Waiting for Superman’ the standardized test is the method by which we will determine success in our schools. . . . So competition decides which schools Different conclusions get money instead of putBoth films look at issues ting money where it’s related to children and edu- needed.” cation but differ in what Gonzalez said he feels causes problems. that “Race to Nowhere” —

which is a play on the words Race to the Top, a federal education program — a more accurate view of standardized testing and the politics of schools is presented. “‘Race to Nowhere’ shows what, in my humble opinion, is more accurate, that standardized testing leads to teachers being forced to teach students how to master a, most often, multiple choice test because their jobs will come to depend on kids scoring high,” he said. “[The movie] empowers kids to take ownership of their own learning, which makes sense in the con-

nected, global, interactive world we live in.” Tickets to see “Race to Nowhere” can be purchased online in advance for $10 at epostcard/4935. Tickets at the door will be $15. Gonzalez said he invited not only community members but also government officials such as Gov. Chris Gregoire. The film is rated PG-13, and Gonzalez said it should be appropriate for most students.

Lower Dam Road closure possible for dam removals Will provide staging area for work By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Clallam County commissioners said Monday they will consider a three-year closure of Lower Dam Road to provide a staging area for the removal of the two Elwha River dams. Barnard Construction Co. of Bozeman, Mont., on April 20 requested the closure for the “deconstruction” of the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams. The project is on schedule to begin in September and end 36 months later. The firm has eyed Clallam County and Bureau of Reclamation properties off Lower Dam Road near state Highway 112 west of Port Angeles as its headquarters for equipment maintenance and fuel storage for the project. The road closure between mileposts 0.9 and 1.4 would start just beyond the Elwha Dam RV Park. It would take effect July 1 and last until the project is finished. County Engineer Ross Tyler said he expects the county commissioners will approve the closure when they vote May 10.

Large project

provide the public with a separate overlook spot.” Doherty envisions a public overlook above Lower Dam Road to allow people to watch the 108-foot edifice being torn down. The public overlook would be on the RV park side of the road on a Bureau of Reclamation parcel. “Who pays for that remains to be seen because it’s not a county-owned piece of property,” Tyler said.

Vault toilet The suggested arrangement for the lease is for the contractor to install a vault toilet at the staging area before the project is completed. “The arrangement we had agreed upon was suggested by Commissioner Doherty a year ago, before the contract had even been awarded,” Tyler said. Although a cost estimate for the vault toilet is pending, Tyler said his best guess for a precast, concrete, onetoilet structure would be roughly $15,000 to $20,000. “Personally, I think that’s fair,” Tyler said. The vault toilet would become a county facility on the east side of Lower Dam Road. “We have to make sure that we are getting adequate remuneration here and justify why we’re getting it because we have a principle of fairness that we have to do with everybody,” Jones said during the work session. “If we charge people for using rights of way and getting franchises and other county property, we have to make sure that we have a logical and very rational reason for every amount that we collect and or give up because this is taxpayer money. “I fully expect that there will be something in [the lease] representing that, and I can’t wait to see it myself.”

Port Ludlow woman lobbies for state license plate program

By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

PORT LUDLOW — Scholastic music programs across the state will benefit from the sale of specialty license plants that proclaim “Music Matters,” to be approved by Gov. Chris Gregoire at a signing ceremony in Olympia at 1:30 p.m. today. “Funding for school music programs have been cut dramatically, so we are using this as an alternative,” said Danille Turissini of Port Ludlow, who lobbied in support of creating the custom plates. “We are hoping this idea extends into other areas since lots of programs are getting cut.”

Clallam PUD rolls out proposal for 6% increase in water rates By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

CARLSBORG — The Clallam County Public Utility District went before the public Monday to discuss the reasons why it wants to raise water rates by 6 percent. If approved, the increase becomes effective on bills sent out starting June 1. Additional 6 percent increases would take effect in January 2012 and January 2013. No public testimony was taken in the hearing at the PUD’s Carlsborg Operations Center. Other meetings are planned for next Monday at the Clallam Bay Library, 16990 state Highway 112, and May 16 at the PUD’s main office at 2431 E. U.S. Highway 101, Port Angeles. Both hearings will begin at 1:30 p.m. Commissioners are likely to vote on the proposal after the May 16 hearing. “Currently, our water rates are insufficient to meet the future and current forecast expenses of the water system,” PUD Treasurer Josh Bunch said at Monday’s hearing in Carlsborg. “By the third year, if we do nothing, we’re not going to meet targets. We wouldn’t have the income for capital, and we’re getting down to bare minimum on our debt coverage.”

Level lowered A cost-of-service study suggested a 9.8 percent increase, but PUD staff whittled that down to 6 percent by deferring some projects and reallocating resources. PUD officials said a

water rate increase is needed to meet regulatory mandates, fund ongoing maintenance of aging infrastructure and meet other operational costs. “We’re not here for profit, we’re here to cover costs,” Bunch said. The idea behind the gradual increase is to avoid the sticker shock of a large, one-time increase. “It’s much nicer for our customers and for the district to have a steady revenue stream of steady, smaller increases over time,” Bunch said. If the increase is approved, a residential water customer using an average of 600 to 700 cubic feet per month would see a increase of about $2 to $4 on his or her monthly water bill. “It could vary depending on your usage,” Bunch said. “If you’re a little bit above the average usage, your going to see a higher than a 6 percent [increase]. If you’re below the average usage, you’re going to see a little bit lower than the 6 percent.” Although the increase for residential customers could vary from 4 percent to 8 percent, Bunch said 95 percent of PUD water customers would see a 6 percent increase. “For a commercial customer, it’s really going to depend on which district you’re in and how much usage you have,” he said.

Adjusted income The PUD’s adjusted operating income is projected to be $288,216 this year and fall to $74,926 by 2013. Bunch described a “slow deterioration of finan-

cial health of the district without increases.” With the 6 percent step ups, projected revenue would rise from $2.7 million to $2.9 million in the first year to more than $3 million in 2012 to $3.25 million in 2013, Bunch said. “Everything’s trending in the right direction.” More funding is needed for a comprehensive water plan update, which the state requires every six years. The utility district is completing a new water resources project for Fairview water users. The “Bluffs Well” project for Fairview customers is the largest on the PUD’s horizon, with estimated costs of $800,000 this year and $1.5 million in each of the next two years.

Bond issue To pay for this and other capital projects, the PUD plans to take out $4.5 million in bonds over the next two years. “The thing to state on Bluffs Well is it’s a large project, and it is the primary driver here for the borrowing, which is behind our rate increase,” Bunch said. PUD General Manager Doug Nass said the Bluffs Well project is mandated by the state departments of Ecology and Health. The district also is purchasing land for a new Gales Addition reservoir. The existing reservoir there is more than 60 years old, PUD spokesman Mike Howe has said. The PUD serves about 4,300 water customers in Clallam County.

My eyes slip past the above delectable treats, looking for night-lights (safety in a dark strange room), luggage rack (no bending), grab bars by bathroom facilities (age has peculiar needs) and a firm mattress (a well-supported back offers a good night’s rest). While not really fussy, I wonder if the white shades

The leader of the Palestinian militant Hamas government in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh, condemned the killing, saying the operation marked “the continuation of the American oppression and shedding of blood of Muslims and Arabs.” Other Muslims leaders said bin Laden’s death will help restore the image of Islam as a religion of peace, not violence and radicalism. “Bin Laden’s acts robbed us of freedom to talk and move around,” said Mohammad alMansouri, a prominent lawyer and human rights activist in the United Arab Emirates.

Yes, chocolate favors were present along with discreet advertising to go

Music provided a salubrious backdrop for the ambiance anticipated at a B&B, so was the four-hour tour successful? To me, yes.

Stay home Every time a disaster befalls the United States, the president feels it necessary to hasten to the site. By doing so, he consumes the valuable time of police, fire and other emergency responders in order

that he be afforded the highest level of security. Please just stay home, Mr. President! He might feel like he is “Great Benefactor” dropping in from the sky with federal aid, but to those citizens in the affected area, he is merely a distracting nuisance and a pain in the rear. He should let them get their lives back in order without interference. Michael Albrich, Sequim

Wall Street and GOP, sitting in a tree LAST YEAR, THE GOP pulled off two spectacular examples of bait-and-switch campaigning. Medicare, where the Paul same people who screamed Krugman about death panels are now trying to dismantle the whole program, was the most obvious. But the same thing happened with regard to financial reform. As you may recall, Republicans ran hard against bank bailouts. Among other things, they managed to convince a plurality of voters that the deeply unpopular bailout legislation proposed and passed by the Bush administration was enacted on President Obama’s watch. And now they’re doing everything they can to ensure that there will be even bigger bailouts in years to come. What does it take to limit future bailouts? Declaring that we’ll never do it again is no answer.

When financial turmoil strikes, standing aside while banks fall like dominoes isn’t an option. After all, that’s what policy makers did in 1931, and the resulting banking crisis turned a mere recession into the Great Depression. And let’s not forget that markets went into free fall when the Bush administration let Lehman Brothers go into liquidation. Only quick action — including passage of the much-hated bailout — prevented a full replay of 1931. So what’s the solution? The answer is regulation that limits the frequency and size of financial crises, combined with rules that let the government strike a good deal when bailouts become necessary. Remember, from the 1930s until the 1980s the United States managed to avoid large bailouts of financial institutions. The modern era of bailouts only began in the Reagan years, when politicians started dismantling 1930s-vintage regulation. Moreover, regulation wasn’t updated as the financial system evolved. The institutions that were rescued in 2008-09 weren’t old-fashioned banks; they were complex

financial empires, many of whose activities were effectively unregulated — and it was these unregulated activities that brought the U.S. economy to its knees. Worse yet, officials lacked clear authority to seize these failing empires the way the FDIC can seize a conventional bank when it goes bust. That’s one reason the bailout looked so much like a giveaway — officials felt they lacked the legal tools to save the financial system without letting the people who created the crisis off the hook. Last year, congressional Democrats enacted a financial reform bill that sought to close these gaps. The bill extended regulation in a number of ways — consumer protection, higher capital standards for major institutions, greater transparency for complex financial instruments. And it created new powers — “resolution authority” — to help officials drive a harder bargain in future crises. There are many criticisms one can make of this legislation, which is arguably much too weak. And the Obama administration has frustrated many people with its too-lenient attitude

toward Wall Street — exemplified by last week’s decision to exempt foreign-exchange swaps, a major source of dislocation in 2008, from regulation. But Republicans are trying to undermine the whole thing. Back in February, GOP legislators admitted frankly that they were trying to cripple financial reform by cutting off funding. And the recent House budget proposal, which calls for privatizing and voucherizing Medicare, also calls for eliminating resolution authority, in effect setting things up so that the bankers will get as good a deal in the next crisis as they got in 2008. Of course, that’s not how Republicans put it. They claim that their goal is to “end the cycle of future bailouts,” under the general rubric of “ending corporate welfare.” But as we’ve already seen, future bailouts will happen whatever today’s politicians say — and they’ll be bigger, more frequent and more expensive without effective regulation. To see what’s really going on, follow the money. Wall Street used to favor Democrats, perhaps because financiers tend to be liberal on social issues. But greed trumps gay rights,

and financial industry contributions swung sharply toward the Republicans in the 2010 elections. Apparently Wall Street, unlike the voters, had no trouble divining the party’s real intentions. And one more thing: by standing in the way of regulations that would limit future financial crises, Republicans are giving further evidence that they don’t really care about budget deficits. For our current deficit is overwhelmingly the result of the 2008 financial crisis, which devastated revenue and increased the cost of programs like unemployment insurance. And while we managed to avoid large direct bailout costs (a fact not appreciated in public debate), we might not be lucky next time. More and bigger crises; more and bigger bailouts; more and bigger deficits. If you like that prospect, you should love what the GOP is doing to financial reform.

Parmelee is known statewide for filing public records requests to apparently harass judges, lawyers and corrections officers. He claims he wants the records because he’s a freelance journalist investigating corruption. The county is arguing that Parmelee’s requests are harassment in violation of the purpose of the state’s Public Records Act, according to court documents. State law allows the courts

to permit agencies to refuse to release documents with such requests. Franklin County responded to the first two requests from Parmelee, which included one for the jail employee roster. But then, Parmelee submitted 34 more requests specifically naming each employee on the roster and asking for their personal and personnel records, according to court documents. Parmelee, who is acting as his own attorney, claims in court documents that he frequently writes articles about prisons, jails and the government. He also said only his identity as a requester should be considered, not the fact that he is an inmate. Instead of releasing the information, Franklin County went to Franklin County Superior Court and got a preliminary injunction against Parmelee in October 2008. But the court also said it wouldn’t consider Parmelee’s identity in deciding whether to make that injunction permanent. A final decision still hasn’t been made.

NFL Labor

The Associated Press

Port Angeles-born John Elway, Denver Broncos vice president, like other NFL executives will not be able to make player deals with the lockout back in place.

Owners, players spar over lockout By Dave Campbell The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — With its players again barred from work, the NFL told a federal appeals court Monday the fight over whether the lockout is legal won’t get in the way of the 2011 season. The rest of the labor fight? That’s anyone’s guess. The league filed an 18-page brief with the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis, arguing that the lockout should remain in effect permanently while appeals play out. The appeals court put U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson’s order lifting the 45-day lockout on hold temporarily last week. The owners reinstated the lockout a few hours later, and they want a more permanent stay of Nelson’s order so they can argue that it should be overturned altogether. A decision from the appeals court is expected soon. The players have argued there is no guarantee appeals can be wrapped up in time for the regular season, but the NFL said the process — thanks to a request for an expedited hearing — is more a matter of weeks than months. Still, the St. Louis Rams announced via Twitter they’re pushing back the deadline for renewing season tickets to June 1 to give fans “flexibility given the current labor uncertainty.”

Seattle general manager John Schneider, left, and head coach Pete Carroll aren’t sweating not selecting a quarterback last weekend during the NFL draft. Carroll, helping Schneider adjust his coat before they talked about the draft on April 26, says the Seahawks like Charlie Whitehurst and have quarterback plans.

Not sweating big stuff Hawks got everything they want except a QB By Tim Booth

The Associated Press

RENTON — In some way, John Schneider and Pete Carroll addressed nearly every position of concern the Seattle Seahawks had entering the NFL draft. There were the two offensive linemen grabbed with Seattle’s first two picks in the hopes they become the future right side of the Seahawks’ shaky offensive line. Seattle grabbed a trio of

defensive backs to try to get help in the secondary, a pair of linebackers that at the very least could help on special teams, a uniquely tall wide receiver and even a bulky defensive end. But, the Seahawks avoided the position everyone expected Seattle to try to address during the draft — quarterback. “When we were getting ready to pick, they just weren’t there,” said Schneider, the Seahawks’ second-year general manager. “They weren’t in our area.

Short on passers It seemed inevitable that at some point in last weekend’s draft, the Seahawks would grab a quarterback since Charlie Whitehurst is the only one Seattle has under contract and no one is sure if the Seahawks and Matt Hasselbeck will come together on a new contract. It wasn’t for a lack of opportunities that it didn’t happen. When the Seahawks picked Alabama offensive tackle James

State top-ranked Cowboys keep breezing along behind their ace By Matt Schubert

Other teams have previously adjusted prices and renewal plans to account for the lockout. A Detroit Lions season-ticket holder from suburban Detroit, Bill LaFleur, said he’s already renewed for a fourth year despite the uncertainty. “It was due in a couple weeks and the Lions told me if I didn’t pay it by the deadline, I could possibly lose my seat,” LaFleur said. The players have a federal antitrust lawsuit against the NFL pending before Nelson. But the legality of the lockout has essentially become the fight for now, with both sides arguing over whether Nelson has jurisdiction in the case and the notion of irreparable harm — a claim that has been prominent in nearly every court filing since the collective bargaining agreement fell apart March 11 and the NFL stumbled into its first work stoppage since the 1987 strike. Nelson agreed with the players that they were suffering such harm when she lifted the 45-day lockout on April 25. The league has argued, and did again Monday, that Nelson’s order must be stayed or it “would irreparably harm the NFL by undercutting its labor law rights and irreversibly scrambling the eggs of player-club transactions.” “Absent a stay, there will be trades, player signings, players cut under existing contracts, and a host of other changes in employment relationships” between hundreds of players and the 32 NFL teams, the league’s attorneys wrote. Players have argued that they are at the highest risk for harm through the postponement or cancellation of free agency, offseason workouts and the like.

Carpenter with the 25th overall pick, QBs Andy Dalton and Colin Kaepernick were still available, although four quarterbacks had already been taken. Dalton and Kaepernick went 35th and 36th overall, taken by Cincinnati and San Francisco, respectively, early in the second round. But they weren’t the only options Seattle let pass. Iowa’s Ricky Stanzi, North Carolina’s T.J. Yates, Idaho’s Nathan Enderle, Virginia Tech’s Tyrod Taylor and Alabama’s Greg McElroy were all taken in the later rounds of the draft and, in one way or another, passed over by the Seahawks.

CHIMACUM — Cascade Christian has got to be getting sick of seeing Landon Cray. For the fifth time in two years, the Chimacum left-hander took the hill against the Cougars. And for the fifth straight time, he came out the winner. Cray gave up just one run in five innings pitched and smashed a two-run homer to lead Chimacum to an 8-1 victory over the Cougars on a chilly, gray Monday afternoon. “Anytime anybody faces Landon Cray on the mound, you’re in for a full day’s work,” Cascade Christian coach Paul Sopak said. He’s just an all-around great athlete.” Considered to be Chimacum’s greatest roadblock to a third straight Class 1A Nisqually League title, Cascade Christian turned out to be just another bump in the road Monday. The top-ranked Cowboys (9-0 in league, 15-1 overall) took advantage of five Cougars errors to run away with their 14th Steve Mullensky/for Peninsula Daily News straight win and move within a Chimacum ace Landon Cray throws a curve ball against victory of claiming another outright league crown. Cascade Christian on Monday at Chimacum.

Cray faced the minimum number of batters through four innings, before eventually finishing with eight strikeouts, two walks, two hits and one run in five innings for the win. “Every year, I pitch both games [against Cascade Christian],” Cray said. “I always see these guys, so it’s a lot fun. “I felt good for the most part. It wasn’t my best outing, but my team is putting together some hits now. We’re heating up. It’s really good to see.”

Leadoff triple Cray’s leadoff triple in the bottom of the first inning led to Chimacum’s first run of the game after Devin Manix brought him in with a sacrifice fly to left field. Chimacum added another run off Cougars starter Stephen Mahnken in the first after Austin McConnell reached on an error and Dylan Brown-Bishop drove him in with a single two batters later.

Briefly . . . Luncheon for Sixkiller golf tourney



The 16U Port Angeles Illusion softball team won an 18U NSA tournament last weekend, beating the Outlaws — a strong Canadian team — for the championship. Team members include, top row from left, coaches Warren Stevens and Brett Curtis. Middle row, Kearsten Cox, Lauren Curtis, Meleny Fors, Raelyn Lucas piggy back on Tori Kuch, Ashlee Reid and coach Rick Pennington. Bottom row, Lois Harding, Maddy Hinrichs, Makayla Cox, Sarah Steinman and Tori Holcomb. Not pictured is Kelsey Hinsdale.

Title: Chimacum blasts Cougs Continued from B1 The Cowboys were error free on the game. “You still got to show up, you still got to play and you still have to execute,” Chimacum coach Jim Dunn said of his team, ranked No. 1 in all of 1A for the fifth straight week. “It was just a matter of us being prepared and they weren’t prepared. “I think they are a better team than what they played today. We just made the plays [in the field], and they didn’t.” Cray added two more runs in the fifth with his blast to right center field off Cougars reliever Jacob Kushan. He finished 2-for-4 on the day with two runs scored and two RBIs. His line-drive shot in the fifth was his eighth homer of the season, furthering his single-season school record. “I’m not really expecting [all of these home runs],” said Cray, who’s received interest from Pac-10 schools Oregon and Oregon State. “I just go up there to hit, and they are going. I don’t know. I just try to hit the ball hard. “I knew a fastball was coming [against Kushan], so I just geared up on that.” The Cowboys finished the game with 11 hits off Cougar pitching. That included a 4-for-4 day from second baseman Mike Nordberg, who also

Chimacum’s Derek Ajax lays down a bunt against Cascade Christian. had three stolen bases and two runs scored. Brown-Bishop was 3-for-4 with two RBIs. Quinn Eldridge pitched two perfect innings in relief, notching two strikeouts. “Our defense is solid, our offense is coming along and our pitching has just carried us the whole year,” Dunn said. “Hitting comes and goes, but defense and pitching is pretty well established. “With hitting, you go through lulls, and so far we haven’t gone through lulls with pitching and defense.” Added Cray, “It’s easy just to go out there and have these guys behind me.”

The Cowboys will look to clinch their fifth league title in six years when last-place Life Christian comes to town Wednesday for a doubleheader. That would give them the West Central District’s top seed and a home game in the first round of the 1A Tri-District tournament. “Chimacum is just an all-around good team,” Sopak said. “They’ve got guys that love to play baseball and they come out and play as a team. “They have fun, and they win a lot of games doing that, taking that approach. “Every year they are up there as a final four contender [at state]. That’s our

The Kings and the NBA gave Sacramento one last chance to prove it deserves to be an NBA city. Now it’s up to Mayor Kevin Johnson and the business community to come up with a viable plan for a new arena after so many failed attempts in the past. Sound familiar Seattle Sonics fans? “This is one of the proudest moments of my life

because the community believed when no one else did,” Johnson said Monday. “We kept believing. And if you believe, anything is possible.” The decision by the Maloof family to keep their team in Sacramento rather than apply for relocation to Anaheim, Calif., is only temporary. Co-owner Joe Maloof and NBA Commissioner David Stern made clear that the team will leave after next season if an

arena plan is not in place. “We spent 13 years and millions of dollars to try to get an arena built,” Maloof said. “We don’t have the answer. The mayor has the answers and we’re willing and able to listen. He’s got to have a plan. “We never want to be untruthful to the fans of Sacramento. There is a sense of urgency, and that’s up to Mayor Johnson and his political team.” Stern praised Johnson, a

former NBA All-Star, for his Herculean effort at mobilizing the community to keep the team. Stern’s support for another chance for Sacramento is a far cry from his stance during the All-Star break in February, when he said the league would spend no more time trying to get an arena built in California’s capital city. At that point, the Kings’ departure seemed almost inevitable.

Hawks: Draft no quarterbacks Continued from B1 before the start of last season. Whitehurst never won The approach was somewhat contrary to what Sch- the starting job from Hasneider said before the draft selbeck but did start a pair that taking a quarterback of games, including Seatin each draft was part of a tle’s NFC West-clinching philosophy he believed in win over St. Louis in the after spending much of his regular season finale. “Charlie was part of this career working in Green draft class in a sense in that Bay. But to Schneider and we used a third-round pick Carroll, the Seahawks did to get him,” Carroll said. “We have a young uptake a quarterback in this and-coming quarterback. draft — Whitehurst. Seattle sent its third- And I know where you’re round pick in this year’s looking, ‘let’s go get another draft to San Diego in one,’ but we’re happy with exchange for Whitehurst Charlie and he continues to

blossom and flourish. “I’m not feeling like we missed out on an opportunity because Charlie is growing with us.” By not taking a quarterback in the draft, it’s expected to be a position of need whenever free agency begins or trades can be made. New assistant head coach Tom Cable already has four-fifths of his offensive line planned out with Carpenter, third-round pick John Moffitt, Max Unger and last year’s first-round pick, Russell Okung.

The only hole is at left guard. Seattle also needs more depth on the defensive line and said re-signing defensive tackle Brandon Mebane is a priority. But what the Seahawks do at quarterback will be the focus of everyone, especially after not taking anyone in the draft. “We had a plan going in and still have our plan,” Schneider said. “We just can’t execute that plan right now.”

Kids Fishing Day SEQUIM — Children 14 years and younger are invited to a free fishing day at Sequim’s water reclamation pond and demonstration park, just north of Carrie Blake Park on Blake Avenue, on May 21. The pond will be stocked with 1,500 trout, some up to 10 pounds, plus there will be a special pool for toddlers with a separate stock of trout. No fishing license is required. The event goes from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. It is presented by the Puget Sound Anglers, North Olympic Peninsula Chapter, in coordination with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife and Sequim Public Works Department. Youthful anglers can bring their own pole and bait or borrow a rod from the club stock. Bait is also supplied by the club. The anglers also can learn how to clean the fish by watching club members clean and ice their catch. The pond will be stocked with another 1,000 fish in the following weeks so children may continue to fish at the pond throughout the summer. The pond is closed to fishing for anyone over 14 years old.

Post-9/11 attack changes to business outlive bin Laden By Michael Liedtke The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Osama bin Laden’s death won’t reverse the transformation of business that followed the Sept. 11 attacks. No matter what happens next, bin Laden’s legacy has meant costs and fees that business and consumers had never faced before — and that aren’t about to go away. “The cost of doing business has gone up permanently since 9/11,” said Sung Won Sohn, an economics professor for the California State University at Channel Islands. At the same time, John Silvia, chief economist at Wells Fargo Securities, said bin Laden’s death might reduce the perception of risk in trading and doing business, something that could benefit the global economy. “I would view this as a risk-reducing event,” Silvia said. Stocks began climbing Monday morning after news of bin Laden’s death. Strong earnings reports from Humana Inc. and other companies also pushed them higher. But by lunchtime, the gains were gone. The major indexes wavered the rest of the day and closed slightly lower. Here’s a look at how different industries and sectors were reshaped by the Sept. 11 attacks:

Impact on airlines The terrorist attacks turned the act of flying into a test of patience. Air travel changed from a routine exercise — almost as simple as hopping on a

train — into a process of seemingly ever-changing rules and procedures and time-hogging scrutiny. The role of flight attendants changed from serving coffee and a meal with a smile to being a first responder with a need for combat training. In the near-decade since 9/11, passengers have been forced to take off their shoes, throw away containers containing more than 3.4 ounces of liquid and, more recently, subjected to full-body scanners if they want to avoid pat-downs that have sparked complaints about invasions of civil liberties. “Whether or not these rules are effective at making our planes more secure is debatable, but one thing for sure is that they have made going through security more of a hassle for the traveling public,” said Anne Banas, executive editor of SmarterTravel. It also caused deep financial hardships for an industry that had long struggled to maintain profits. Besides having to charge a $2.50-per-flight fee to help bankroll the Transportation Security Administration, most airlines now charge to check baggage, too. That adds $100 to $200 to the cost of flying for many travelers. The good news: An airline ticket itself costs slightly less than it did before the attacks. That’s largely because airlines remade themselves into leaner operations, desperate not to lose money after a wave of bankruptcies triggered by 9/11. The list of post-attack

bankruptcies included US Airways in 2002 and 2004, United in 2002, Northwest and Delta in 2005. Mergers have reduced the number of airlines. Airlines employed about 380,000 people at the end of last year — down 27 percent from roughly 520,000 from 2000.

Energy security Power plants and energy transmission networks are deemed to be potential terrorist targets. So the security costs related to them have risen — with costs passed along to customers. After 9/11, U.S. oil refineries were subjected to increased and costly security measures that remain in place, said Bill Day, spokesman for Valero Energy, the nation’s largest independent refiner. Bin Laden’s death prompted Valero to increase security at its 14 refineries as a general precaution. Michael Lynch, president of Strategic and Economic Research Inc., said oil has been more expensive over the past decade because traders have worried al-Qaida could disrupt supplies by attacking refineries, pipelines or ports in the Middle East. “The right person in the right place could do a lot of damage, and al-Qaida has always had people willing to take more risk than anyone else,” Lynch said.

Technology security The attacks spurred more demands for more sophisticated computers and software. The fear of another destructive attack that

might target information technology, or IT, forced companies to hustle to upgrade their security software. This upgrade included heavy-duty encryption and data-recovery protections. The urgency has been especially felt in banking and government and operators of bridges, tunnels and power plants. “The one thing 9/11 really brought to life was how organized the terrorists were,” said Patrik Runald, who runs the U.S. security lab for Websense Inc., a San Diego-based Internet security firm. “People started realizing, if they’re so organized when it comes to physical attacks, what if they were that organized when it comes to cyber-attacks?” More companies also tried to make their workers more productive to help offset their higher costs in 9/11’s aftermath. That goal also helped sell more computers and technology services.

Port security Before 9/11, port security focused almost solely on smugglers and thieves. Now, the focus has shifted to international terrorism threats. And that’s raised the cost of doing business. “We are really looking at threats through a different lens,” said Aaron Ellis, a spokesman for the American Association of Port Authorities. There are more guards, and radiation and gamma ray technology is used to scan containers and ships. Unusual shipments like artillery or chemicals draw extra attention.

Gulf spill casts pall over Shell’s plans The New York Times

SAVOONGA, Alaska — Shell Oil will present an ambitious proposal to the federal government this week, seeking permission to drill up to 10 exploratory oil wells beneath Alaska’s frigid Arctic waters. The forbidding iceclogged region is believed to hold vast reserves of oil, potentially enough to fuel 25 million cars for 35 years. With production in Alaska’s North Slope in steep decline, the oil industry is eager to tap new offshore wells. Shell has led the way, working for five years to convince regulators, environmentalists, Native Alaskans and several courts

that it could manage the process safely, protect polar bears and other wildlife, safeguard air quality for residents and respond quickly to any spill in the region. But BP’s Deepwater Horizon disaster a year ago put a chill on new offshore drilling.

Tests Obama’s promise Shell’s renewed application will pose a test for President Obama, who promised to put safety first after the BP spill. But he has also reiterated his support for offshore drilling amid voter worries about rising gasoline prices. Environmental groups say a spill in the Arctic’s

inaccessible waters could be even more catastrophic than the Gulf of Mexico accident. Republicans, meanwhile, are threatening to excoriate the president for turning his back on energy security if he says no to Shell. “Americans are reeling from staggering prices at the pump,” said U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. “So the president has to justify to the American people why we are not replacing Saudi Arabian oil imports with U.S.-produced oil.” Whatever the administration decides, it will anger somebody.

“If the Obama administration approves drilling in the Arctic, it will demonstrate that they have learned nothing from the gulf spill,” said Brendan Cummings, senior counsel at the Center for Biological Diversity, which is suing to stop Shell. Administration officials say only that they will thoroughly review Shell’s new proposal. “We need to continue to take a cautious approach in the Arctic that is guided by science and the voices of North Slope communities,” said Kendra Barkoff, a spokeswoman for the Interior Department, which oversees most of the process.

Boeing shareholders want annual pay review Peninsula Daily News news services

CHICAGO — Boeing shareholders approve of how much Boeing’s top executives are paid, but they want to exercise that oversight every year. Fifty-five percent of shareholders at the annual Boeing board meeting voted to review top executive pay annually, overriding the board recommendation for a three-year review. Shareholders received a detailed 88-page proxy, detailing the rationale behind top executive compensation far more fully than in the past.

Boeing Co. CEO Jim McNerney, for instance, earns an annual salary of $1.9 million, plus short- and long-term incentives that can add up to $16.2 million according to the proxy. Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO Jim Albaugh received $980,000 in annual pay, up to a total of $5.8 million with incentives. Shareholders voted 93 percent approval of the overall compensation package. “The vote indicated that shareholders feel the company is on the right track, in terms of constructing a compensation program that awards performance,” said Boeing spokesman

John Dern. However, the board’s recommendation that compensation be reviewed every three years was approved by only 41 percent of stockholders. A two-year option got 3 percent of the vote, Dern said.

Considers vote The board will consider the shareholders’ vote at an upcoming meeting, probably in the fall, he said. The shareholder vote is advisory-only. The board will decide to approve review of executive compensation every year, or if it will stay with its own rec-

ommendation to review every three years. The “say on pay” vote is being replicated nationwide as part of the Dodd-Franklin financial overhaul law passed last year. The new law has increased scrutiny of corporate decisions about paying their executives and has required adjustments by some companies, including Lockheed Martin Corp. and General Electric Co. Some of Boeing’s criteria for executive compensation include their demonstrated ability to generate sustainable results, “objective performance metrics” and balanced “risk management.”

 $ Briefly . . . Move made on limiting ‘retire-rehire’

Real-time stock quotations at

OLYMPIA — Legislators are moving to limit a “retire-rehire” policy that allows state employees to collect both a pension and a paycheck. The House voted Monday to revive the measure today during a special session largely dedicated to the budget and the state’s deficit. Rep. Barbara Bailey, R-Oak Harbor, said there has been widespread abuse of the program. The bill would allow retiring state employees to be rehired on a parttime basis. If they work too many hours in a year, their pension benefits will be temporarily frozen. The state Senate passed a similar measure two months ago. An investigation by The Seattle Times last year found that 2,000 state employees were collecting both a pension and salary, costing taxpayers about $85 million yearly.

zation costs, which include items such as legal fees; and more than $4,000 in taxes. The total payout, about $419 million, is inching toward half a billion dollars. In March alone, the former bank holding company spent more than $7 million.

Fun ’n’ Advice

Peninsula Daily News

Woman in love with former coach


DEAR ABBY: I am a woman who is in love with my former high school coach. I don’t know if I should tell him. I first realized I loved him about a year and a half after I met him. We had an extremely close relationship, but it was not inappropriate. He is 13 years older than I am. After two years of getting to know him and forming a strong friendship, he moved across the country for work. Since then, I have entered college, and we see each other only on holidays and in the summer. Every time I see him, we go back to our normal, wonderful relationship as though nothing has changed. I was in denial about my feelings for him. I told myself it was puppy love and couldn’t work out because of the age difference and the distance. But after four years of pining for him and several failed romances with others, I realize I deeply love him. We have a unique connection, but he has a reputation as a “player,” so I can’t be sure he feels the same. I don’t want to ruin what we have, but I want more. Should I finally reveal my feelings? Hurting Badly in New England

For Better or For Worse


Frank & Ernest

Dear Hurting Badly: You and your former coach are both adults. I see no reason why you shouldn’t tell him how you feel. However, if he responds affirmatively, please be careful about how you proceed with this relationship. As you said — he has a reputation as a player, and men with a craving for variety can be very unreliable. Dear Abby: I am in my mid-50s, divorced for many years, and have two grown children. I began seeing a delightful gentleman about three years ago. (I’ll call him Jack.) He was dating several women at the time, and after a few months, I made it clear that we would have to have an exclusive relationship or I could not go on seeing him. Jack reluctantly agreed and kept his promise. Four months ago, I demanded a commitment from him. I knew I loved him and wanted to spend the rest of my life with him.




Van Buren

He told me he loved me, but marriage is out of the question — and if that is the only way I’d stay with him, we have to say goodbye. I think I have made a terrible mistake, Abby. What are your thoughts on this? Depressed in Des Moines

Dear Depressed: Since marriage is important to you, you were right to lay it on the line to him. His unwillingness, regardless of how nicely put, to take your relationship to another level means he wasn’t as committed to you as you were to him. And once your self-esteem heals, you will realize that the person who made the terrible mistake was Jack. Dear Abby: May I offer a suggestion concerning elderly people? I know this from experience. When writing to an older adult, every so often include some labels bearing your name and address. This makes it easier for them to respond and for the post office to decipher your address. I have an elderly friend who has severe arthritis. When we correspond, it takes me at least 20 minutes to make out what she has written. The labels have helped us both. Independence, Mo., Reader Dear Reader: I’m pleased to pass the word along. And because readers have complained that they get these labels along with solicitations from charities and don’t know what to do with them, this would be a good way to put them to use. Thank you for the suggestion.


Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Letters can be mailed to Dear Abby, P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069 or via email by logging onto

The Last Word in Astrology By Eugenia Last

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Taking on additional responsibility will help eliminate the pressure being felt by a friend or relative. Be careful not to overextend yourself in the process. Romance is in the stars. 3 stars

Rose is Rose


Dennis the Menace



LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Hard work will pay off but if you slack off, know that someone will do whatever possible to make you look bad. A change of scenery will do you good. Love is in the stars but don’t mix business with pleasure. 2 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Concentrate on what’s important, whether it’s getting your homework or job finished or simply running errands for someone who needs your help. A conversation with an old friend will remind you of past dreams and hopes. 3 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A lifestyle change or updating your old philosophy will give you a boost and allow you to meet people who feel the same way you do. Making alterations now will allow you greater freedom in the future. Don’t put your money on the table before you try out the merchandise. 5 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep a close eye on your money. You can expect to receive extra cash but you can lose it just as quickly if you aren’t careful. Stick to a budget or put your money into a solid, safe, long-term investment. Added discipline will lead to bigger accomplishments. 3 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take care of legal and health issues quickly. The less you leave undone, the better. Don’t let anyone dissuade you from doing what you feel is necessary to protect your home, family or finances. Get professional help before you sign legal papers. 3 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): If you are too giving, someone will take advantage of you. Protecting your interest emotionally and financially is important. A partnership will face uncertainty. Keep an open mind but don’t go down a path that isn’t right for you. 4 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A new partnership can bring you good fortune and motivation and inspire your creativity. Direct communication will bring the best results. A change of plans will turn out to be a blessing. 3 stars SAGITTARIUS (Nov.

The Family Circus

Now you can shop at!

22-Dec. 21): Adventure, excitement and physical challenge will stimulate your senses and motivate you. Making changes to your home or an addition to your entertainment center will help bring loved ones closer together. A hidden asset will turn out to be more valuable than you thought. 3 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stick close to home and take care of any personal matters that concern family or your residence. Don’t let friends or neighbors push you into anything you don’t want to do. Travel plans and communication will not run smoothly. 5 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Stick to the people you know and trust. A change in the way you do things or how you earn your living looks favorable. Opportunity is about to knock, so be ready to jump at any chance fulfill your dreams. 2 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll impress others with your insight and empathy. Someone you have done business with in the past will do you a favor or have a lead that can help you advance and boost your income. It’s you who should be doing the pushing. 4 stars
