Convicted thief out of prison after 1 week BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Convicted thief Staci Allison was released from prison this week pending her appeal of a three-year sentence for stealing $8,644 from the Clallam County Sheriffâ€™s Office evidence room while she was the evidence room technician. Superior Court Judge Ken Williams on Dec. 15 had sentenced Allison, 41, to concurrent terms of three years for first-degree theft
and six months for money laundering for stealing the money from evidence bags between 2003 and 2006. Before staying Allisonâ€™s sentence, Williams heard Allison arguments from Assistant State Attorney General Scott Marlow and Port
Angeles attorney Ralph Anderson before ordering Allisonâ€™s release from the Washington Corrections Center for Woman at Purdy. Allison, of Montesano, was released on $10,000 bail Tuesday. An eight-man, four-woman jury found Allison guilty Oct. 21, also deciding she committed a major economic offense, which made her eligible for a maximum of 10 years rather than six years. TURN

Burglar hits resident in head A 41-YEAR-OLD AGNEW resident was treated at Olympic Medical Center earlier this week after being struck in the head by a burglar as the resident returned home. Brian Dumas, who was recovering from hip surgery and using crutches, returned to his home on Finn Hall Road at about 1 p.m. Tuesday when he was struck by the intruder, the Clallam County Sheriffâ€™s Office said Wednesday. Chief Criminal Deputy Ron Cameron said the resident was likely punched. The masked man dropped items, including jewelry, as he fled from the house. Some items, including an undetermined amount of cash, were found missing. Port Angeles police responded with a police dog, but the track was lost. The assailant is described as about 6 feet tall and wearing an â€œorangishâ€? coat, possibly a Carhartt-brand. Anyone with information on the burglary is asked to phone the Sheriffâ€™s Office at 360-417-2459. Peninsula Daily News

Park will rethink its trail plans Worries rise over safety, access on Spruce route BY TOM CALLIS PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK â€” Olympic National Park is going back to the drawing board for plans to extend the Olympic Discovery Trail along Lake Crescent. The park announced Wednesday that it will create a new environmental assessment to replace the one in development after reviewing 143 comments, many of which voiced concern over safety and wheelchair access. â€œMembers of the public brought up important issues, particularly surrounding accessibility, safety, and visitor experience, and we will fully examine and analyze them as we develop the revised EA,â€? park Superintendent Karen Gustin said in a written statement. A new 30-day public comment period also will be held, though dates have not been selected. The park was considering plans to construct the 3.5-mile segment along the former Spruce Railroad grade at six feet wide, rather than the eight feet typically seen along the trail system, in order to preserve the original railroad ballast.

By The Associated Press
NORMAN KRIM, 98, an electronics visionary who played a pivotal role in the industry’s transition from the bulky electron vacuum tube, which once lined the innards of radios and televisions, to the tiny, far more powerful transistor, died Dec. 14 in a retirement home in Newton, Mass. The cause was congestive heart failure, his son, Robert, said. Mr. Krim, who made Mr. Krim several breakthroughs in a long career with the Raytheon Co. and who had an early hand in the growth of the RadioShack chain, did not invent the transistor, but he saw the device’s potential and persuaded his company to begin manufacturing it on a mass scale, particularly for use in miniaturized hearing aids he had designed. Like the old tube, a transistor is a semiconductor that amplifies audio signals.
Passings As Time magazine wrote in 1953: “This little device, a single speck of germanium, is smaller than a paper clip and works perfectly at onetenth the power needed by the smallest vacuum tube. Today, much of Raytheon’s transistor output goes to America’s hearing aid industry.”
________ J. LYNN HELMS, 86, the head of the Federal Aviation Administration who carried out President Reagan’s order to fire more than 11,000 striking air traffic controllers and oversaw efforts to keep airlines flying during the crisis, has died. He died Dec. 11 of cardiopulmonary failure at his home in Westport, Conn., a family spokesman said. Mr. Helms had a reputation as a decisive, technically brilliant aviation industry executive who led a number of companies out of financial straits, including Piper Aircraft, which he ran for six years. Several months into his tenure in August 1981,
more than 12,000 members of the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization, known as PATCO, walked off the job after contract negotiations stalled over the union’s call for a reduced workweek and higher pay. After receiving assurances from Mr. Helms that a strike could be managed, Reagan declared the walkout illegal and warned that any workers who did not return to their jobs within 48 hours would be fired. The majority of controllers remained on strike and lost their jobs.

A3 Briefly: Nation Guilty plea told in eight-state Ponzi scheme SANTA FE, N.M. — A former Albuquerque real estate executive pleaded guilty Wednesday to two felony charges and agreed to serve up to 12 years in prison to settle charges he ran a Ponzi scheme that swindled nearly $75 million out of investors in at least eight states. Doug Vaughan entered the plea Wednesday in federal court in Santa Fe to charges of mail and wire fraud. Chief Judge Bruce Black will determine the final sentence later, but the plea agreement calls for a minimum of 10 years and potentially up to 12 years. The 64-year-old Vaughan agreed to pay a fine of up to $250,000, as well as restitution ordered by the court. He will forfeit a house in Las Vegas, Nev., and the proceeds from personal property auctioned earlier this year. The plea agreement settled a 30-count indictment, which could have meant up to life in prison for Vaughan had he been convicted on all charges and given maximum sentences, according to his attorney, Amy Sirignano. Prosecutors say Vaughan swindled 600 investors in at least eight states, with victims in New Mexico, Arizona, Washington, Oregon, New Jersey, Texas, Virginia and Colorado.
Daggers in flier’s book WASHINGTON — The Transportation Security Administration said officers found two throwing daggers hidden in a hollowed-out book at a checkpoint at Reagan-Washington National Airport. A TSA spokesman said a passenger was stopped Monday when officers found the knives in the person’s carry-on bag. The daggers measured just over a half-foot long and were hidden in the hard-cover book. The passenger was flying to Chicago and surrendered the knives and book. The TSA has the authority to fine passengers who bring deadly weapons into the airport checkpoint. It was not known if this was done in this case.
Cutter delivers fuel JUNEAU, Alaska — The Coast Guard is enlisting its only functioning ice breaker to help with the delivery of fuel to Nome. The city on Alaska’s western coastline is iced-in and facing a winter fuel shortage because a massive storm prevented a fuel delivery by barge this fall. The plan is for an Russian tanker to deliver 1.5 million gallons of petroleum products to Nome in early January. The Coast Guard said it will have the cutter Healy break ice along the nearly 300-mile route from the ice edge to Nome. The Seattle-based Healy’s mission has been extended a month for this.

The attack Tuesday pushed the death toll for two days of violence across Syria to more than 200. It was one of the deadliest single events of the entire ninemonth uprising against President Bashar Assad’s authoritarian rule. The offensive targeted the village of Kfar Owaid, about 30 miles from the northern border with Turkey. Syrian officials have not commented on the allegations.

FAA issues rules to keep tired pilots out of cockpit THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Rules aimed at preventing airline pilots from flying while dangerously fatigued were issued Wednesday by the Federal Aviation Administration, a move safety advocates have been urging for more than two decades. The rules update current pilot work schedule regulations, which largely date back to the 1960s, to reflect studies on how much time pilots need for rest and an understanding of how travel through time zones and the human body clock’s response to light and darkness can affect performance. Carriers have two years to adapt to the new rules. The FAA estimated the cost to industry at $297 million over 10 years, a fraction of the $2 billion a year that an airline trade association had estimated a draft pro-
posal released by FAA over a year ago would cost. The airline industry had opposed the draft rule as too costly for the safety benefits it would achieve. But FAA officials made substantial changes to the final rule to lower the cost. The new rules come nearly three years after the deadly crash of a regional airliner flown by two exhausted pilots. The rules would limit the maximum number of hours a pilot can be scheduled to be on duty — including wait time before flights and administrative duties — to between nine and 14 hours. The total depends on the time of day pilots begin their first flight and the number of time zones crossed. The maximum amount of time pilots can be scheduled to fly is limited to eight or nine hours, and
pilots would get a minimum of 10 hours to rest between duty periods, a two-hour increase over the old rules. Pilots flying overnight would be allowed fewer hours than pilots flying during the day. But cargo carriers — who do much of their flying overnight when people naturally crave sleep — are exempted from the new rules. The FAA said forcing cargo carriers to reduce the number of hours their pilots can fly would be too costly compared to the safety benefits. Imposing the rules on cargo airlines like Federal Express or United Parcel Service would have added another $214 million to the cost, FAA officials said. The exemption for cargo carriers runs counter to the FAA’s goal of “one level of safety” across the aviation industry.
Chinese-American soldier’s suicide attributed to hazing THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Even before the Army sent him to Afghanistan, supporters say, Pvt. Daniel Chen was fighting a personal war. Fellow soldiers at a base in Georgia teased him about his Chinese name, crying out “Chen!” in an exaggerated Asian accent. They called him “Jackie Chen,” a reference to the Hollywood action star Jackie Chan. People would ask him repeatedly if he was Chinese, even though he was a native New Yorker. At one point Chen wrote in his diary that he was running out of jokes to respond with. Then he was sent overseas, and
the hazing began: Soldiers dragged him across a floor, pelted him with stones and forced him to hold liquid in his mouth while hanging upside down, according to diary entries and other accounts cited by a community activist. On Oct. 3, the 19-year-old Chen was found dead in a guardhouse in Afghanistan with what the Army said was apparently a self-inflicted gunshot wound. On Wednesday, the Army announced charges against eight soldiers in his death, saying Chen was a victim of illegal hazing. Five of those accused were charged with involuntary manslaughter and negligent homicide. The alleged offenses also
included maltreatment, assault and threats. Chen was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 21st Infantry Regiment, 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, based in Fort Wainwright, Alaska. The military would not discuss the exact circumstances surrounding Chen’s death. But family members and community activists said they suspect the bullying may have driven him to suicide. Activists said Chen’s case has highlighted the military’s poor treatment of Asian-Americans, who remain a tiny percentage of new recruits even as the percentage of blacks, Hispanics, women and other groups has grown.

Heftier riders reduce state ferry capacity Estimates of passenger weight raised BY DOUG ESSER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE — The state ferry service isn’t going to start turning away hefty passengers, but it has had to reduce the capacity of some boats in the nation’s largest ferry system because people have been packing on the pounds. Coast Guard vessel stability rules that took effect nationwide Dec. 1 raised the estimated weight of the average adult passenger to 185 pounds from the previous 160 pounds, based on population information from the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That has resulted in a reduced capacity for some of the Washington State Ferry system’s boats.
Salish unaffected The change doesn’t affect the Salish, which can carry 750 passengers as it plies the route between Port Townsend and Coupeville on Whidbey Island, or any other vessels in the Kwa-di Tabil class, said Marta Coursey, Washington State Ferries spokeswoman. The change does apply to some larger ferries, such as the Evergreen State and Tillikum, she said. And the Coast Guard said smaller charter fishing vessels could be affected. During the past 20 years, there has been a dramatic increase in obesity in the United States and about one-third of American adults are now considered obese, the CDC says on its website. The state ferry system has complied with the new stability rules by simply reducing the listed capacity of some of its vessels, Coast Guard Lt. Eric Young said Wednesday.
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Passengers prepare to disembark from the ferry Puyallup on its arrival at Bainbridge Island on Wednesday. The Washington State Ferry service isn’t going to start turning away hefty passengers, but it has had to reduce the capacity of the nation’s largest ferry system because people have been packing on the pounds. “That has effectively reduced the amount of passengers by about 250 passengers or so depending on the particular ferry,” said Young, who is based in Seattle. “They generally carry about 2,000, so it’s down to 1,750 now.” With that many passengers, the ferry wouldn’t tip over even if everyone ran to the side at the same time to look at a pod of orcas, he said.
Stability rules won’t affect Coho THE NEW COAST GUARD vessel stability rules have no effect on the capacity of the MV Coho, said the Port Angeles district manager for Black Ball Ferry Line. “We had our stability numbers recalculated and it was found that the new USCG stability rules will not effect our passenger capacity of 1,000,” said Rian Anderson, in an email.
The Coho plies the waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca between Port Angeles and Victoria several times a day. It leaves Port Angeles from the Black Ball ferry terminal on Railroad Avenue. For more information, phone 360457-4491 or see www.cohoferry.com/ main. Peninsula Daily News
No practical effect The reduced passenger capacity is unlikely to have much practical effect on the spacious ferries, Coursey said. The ferries often fill up
with vehicles, but the number of passengers, especially walk-ons is seldom a problem, she said. The new stability rules may have a bigger impact
on the smaller charter fishing boats, such as those that take anglers fishing out of the Pacific Ocean ports of Westport and Ilwaco, Young said.
Any vessel that carries more than six paying customers has to be inspected and certified by the Coast Guard as a passenger vessel.
The state operates 23 white and green vessels on 10 routes across Puget Sound and through the San Juan Islands to British Columbia. Carrying more than 22 million passengers a year, it’s the biggest ferry system in the United States and one of the four largest in the world, Coursey said. The ferries themselves could be contributing to passenger girth. The galleys cater to customers looking for fast food they can eat while looking out the windows at the scenery and seagulls. Calorie counters typically aren’t buying the hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken strips.

Diminish effect Marlow argued that releasing Allison would diminish the sentence’s deterrent effect, noting the crimes were discovered in
November 2006. Allison was arrested in December 2006. Investigators discovered $51,251 missing from the evidence room, but Allison was linked to only $8,644. “The notion that punishment follows wrong behavior is a bedrock principle in our society,” Marlow wrote in his response to Anderson’s motion. “The fact is that this case, because of its nature
as another incident of public corruption, has been and is being watched by the people of Clallam County and beyond.” Marlow successfully prosecuted former Clallam County Treasurer’s Office Cashier Catherine Betts, who in August was sentenced to 12 years for stealing between $617,467 and $795,595 in real estate excise tax proceeds between June 2003 and May 2009.
Authorities have said the thefts by Betts and Allison are not connected, but they have one thing in common: The stolen money in both cases has never been recovered. Marlow and Anderson did not return calls for comment Wednesday morning.

For the safety of the passengers, balloons will not go up if it is raining or windy, he said, which is why the festival was planned for September, which is normally the driest and most windless time of year. Tomaras drives home the point that in the past 31 years there have only been two days that it rained and two days that the wind has blown more than 12 miles per hour in September. If balloons do not go up, people will receive a full refund, he said.
The expense of ballooning is another factor in the cost per flight, he said. A four-person balloon starts at $30,000. The more colors and design a balloon has, the more expensive it is. Balloons with unique shapes are far more expensive, he said. The cost of chase vehicles and the trailers can run up to $70,000. All balloonists that take people up for rides carry insurance that cost $1,000 a year per balloon. Then there is the propane fuel, which can run up to $150 a run. Since there are not many balloons, most balloonists
travel a long distance to get to a festival. Gasoline and other expenses can cost $300 to 1,000 for a round trip. A balloon is good for 500 to 600 hours of flying time. Most balloon festivals do not offer rides because it increases the festival insurance, Tomaras said. “I say all this because most people ask me why do balloon rides cost $250 per person,” he said. “The truth is balloonists love their sport and they love to share and while you may be paying $250 for a lifetime experience, you are being partly subsidized by the balloonist, their sponsor, and the Sequim
Balloon Festival.” Sponsors of each balloon pay $1,500. “It is some of the best advertising they can possibly have because so many pictures are taken and people talk about the event forever,” Tomaras said. A festival volunteers meeting is planned for 7 p.m. Jan. 12 at the Holiday Inn conference center. Reservations can be made by emailing Sequim BalloonFestival@gmail.com or calling 360-461-2202.

OlyCap names director to serve for year ‘An opportunity to see if it’s a good fit,’ new leader says BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Janet Anderson, the chief operating officer of Olympic Community Action Programs, is succeeding Executive Director Tim Hockett on an interim — but potentially permanent — basis. Anderson, a 22-year OlyCAP employee, was named interim director by the nonprofit organization’s board of directors last week and will continue as its chief operations officer, according to a statement released Tuesday by Human Resources Director Betsi Farrell. Anderson “brings a wealth of experience to this position” but eventually will delegate some of her opera-
tions officer duties, the statement said. Hockett announced Dec. 9 that he is resigning effective Dec. 31, though his last day on the job with OlyCAP, which administers low-income programs in Clallam and Jefferson counties, was Friday. Anderson, 59, of Marrowstone Island, said Wednesday she and the board agreed she would head the organization for a year before deciding whether to apply for the executive director position on a permanent basis. “It’s a year time period to make sure there is sufficient time to get in there and see the effects of my efforts,” said Anderson, who began working at OlyCAP in 1989 as a grant writer.
“What I would say is, this is clearly not a short-term commitment, my taking on this interim Anderson role,” she added. “I don’t think you work 20-plus years at Community Action without having a real strong commitment and passion for services for members in your community. I certainly do have that.” The board is still formalizing her $82,000-a-year contract, an increase of $12,000 over her present salary, she said Wednesday.
‘Challenging time’ “It’s a very challenging time for nonprofits and for community action agencies, and I think the board certainly wants a commitment
for whomever they put in that role, and I am willing to make that a firm commitment for a year,” she said. “That gives them and me an opportunity to see if it’s a good fit. “It’s not a requirement to make it beyond that at this point.” Anderson has been working out of OlyCAP’s Port Townsend office and will continue to do so but will make frequent trips throughout Jefferson and Clallam counties, including Port Angeles, where Hockett lived.
agency that is trying to serve the needy with fewer grants and less government funding. Hockett’s hiring in 1989 coincided with OlyCAP’s first year of partnership with the Peninsula Daily News’ annual Peninsula Home Fund drive, which began Thanksgiving and ends New Year’s Eve. The Home Fund generated $248,267 that OlyCAP distributed to low-income residents in 2010, a record. OlyCAP serves 11,000 individuals and households annually, Hockett said in an earlier interview.
Hockett resignation When he announced his resignation, Hockett said he never fully came back from a year of treatment after being diagnosed with colon cancer in 2003. He also cited stress as a major reason for his departure and the “frustration” of directing a social services

The stresses of holding both jobs will be “a real challenge,” Anderson added. “For me, it certainly is helpful to feel like I have a team of folks at work that can communicate pretty directly and clearly so you are not isolated and manage it on your own,” she said. “I feel very fortunate.” In addition, “I find I rest a lot on the weekends,” Anderson added, spending time with her husband, Michael Bowe, 62.

PA council approves city wireless project Police, fire chiefs biggest supporters BY TOM CALLIS PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Get ready to plug in. Well, sort of. The Port Angeles City Council gave the go-ahead Tuesday evening to a $3.7 million project that will turn the city into one large Internet hot spot, allowing residents and visitors to connect to the Web wirelessly from anywhere in town. The project, funded with the help of $2.6 million in federal stimulus funds, is expected to be completed mid-2013, but customers should be able to begin tapping in by September, said Craig Johnson, vice president of Capacity Provisioning Inc., which will install and maintain the network.
Better connected Johnson said the network will make the city both better connected and, with its use by law enforcement, safer. “You’re going to be able to step outside your door and be connected through this anywhere in town,” he said. The council, which passed three agreements in 6-0 votes to approve the network, also lauded the project for its expected benefits. Councilwoman Brooke Nelson, who recently gave birth, was absent. “This is a huge step for
the city,” Mayor Dan Di Guilio said. “Not too many communities can say their entire city is a Wi-Fi hot spot.” Two of the agreements were with CPI of Port Angeles, whose fiber cables will be the backbone of the network. They include a $2.5 million installation contract and a $28,383 annual network management contract, which also includes maintenance estimated at $4,560 a year. The company is working with three subcontractors: Aruba Networks of Sunnyvale, Calif., Cascade Networks of Longview and Olympic Electric Co. of Port Angeles. The third agreement went to OlyPen, which signed a non-exclusive contract with the city to sell Internet access. It plans to charge $17.95 and $37.95 per month, depending on speed, which will range from 1.5 to 6 megabits per second. Additionally, OlyPen will provide one-hour free access every day. Access will also be free for 24 hours 12 days a year. Those days are yet to be determined.
fitted with new computer equipment to allow officers to connect to the network and essentially be able to do all of their work from their cars. The Port Angeles Fire Department will also have five of its vehicles equipped to use the network.
Lower Elwha The Lower Elwha Klallam tribe, which will also receive a few wireless hot spots, will equip about eight of its police vehicles as well, said acting Police Chief Phil Charles. But connecting the vehicles to the network comes at a cost — $70 per month for each vehicle. For Port Angeles, that means an annual cost of $31,920. Gallagher said he thinks the network is worth it. The network will allow the department to eliminate use of Internet air cards, a cost of $47 per month for each vehicle. Additionally, the city will receive a share of revenue from people accessing the network. That could be as much as $72,000 a year at the start, but that depends on how many customers OlyPen receives. Chuck Beaudettee, OlyPen operations manager, said the company will charge existing cable and DSL customers $4.95 per month for wireless access on mobile devices.
Police Chief Terry Gallagher, one of the strongest proponents of the network, called the network a “giant step forward.” “I don’t know of any other project in the last 25 years that is as a significant as this to public safety and ________ our ability to deliver services to the community,” he Reporter Tom Callis can be said. reached at 360-417-3532 or at As part of the project, 33 tom.callis@peninsuladailynews. police vehicles will be out- com.

OLYMPIA â€” Gov. Chris Gregoire has approved a plan to ease the stateâ€™s $1.4 billion budget deficit and asked lawmakers to tell her when they expect to finish making more grueling cuts that are expected in the coming months. The new budget uses a variety of cuts, transfers and delayed payments to save $480 million. Gregoire had asked lawmakers to fully fix the stateâ€™s spending imbalance before Christmas and is now asking them to finish it early in the new year.
jobs, including a variety of cuts at the Department of Ecology. Another part will delay new rules for mental health assessments, which were expected to increase reliance on psychiatric care, saving about $23 million. Democratic Rep. Ross Hunter said negotiators have done more work than is evident in the $480 million saved. He said they have spent recent weeks building consensus on other areas to cut and have a lot of groups working on smaller projects within the budget. He said itâ€™s more difficult for the Legislature to develop consensus on a plan than it is for the governor. â€œItâ€™s a complicated problem,â€? Hunter said. Along with fixing the $1.4 billion deficit, lawmakers hope to leave several hundred million dollars more in the bank as a buffer. Democrats such as Gregoire also want voters to approve a temporary sales tax increase to offset a chunk of the cuts.

Christmas can be a day of hope amid our troubles IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME, and try as I may to ignore it for the purposes of a column, I can’t seem to evade that simple, irrevocable fact. On Christmas Day, depending on who you are, where you are, who is or isn’t there with you and what you believe about the 25th day of December, it may be a wonderful day, a horrible day, a meaningful day, a great TV day, a terrible TV day, a loud and busy day, a lonely and dreary day, an emotional day or just another day. But there will be no escaping the fact that it is Christmas Day. So, near as I can tell, here’s the one thing that every single one of us, regardless of the day’s circumstances, can agree upon: We aren’t dead. I know this to be true because every applicable marketing study and poll reveals that very few dead people read this column. So what? If it’s Christmas Day, so what? No, try “NOW what?” Right: Now what? What now? What next? The end of the world, in another form or in another place or in another way, depending on which talking head has captured our imaginations.

PORT ANGELES — Unemployment crept up to 9.4 percent in Clallam County and inched down to 8.7 percent in Jefferson County last month, the state Employment Security department reported this week. The revised jobless rates for October were 9.1 percent for Clallam County and 8.8 percent for Jefferson County. “What really stands out is that people are commuting more,” said Elizabeth Scott, regional economist for Employment Security, on Tuesday. It appears more people are driving off the North Olympic Peninsula for work because more are working while jobs have not increased.

Death and Memorial Notice MARY CAROLYN PALMER February 2, 1918 December 14, 2011 Mary Carolyn Palmer joined Ted, her one true love, on December 14, 2011. Born to Robert and Ruby Clough on February 2, 1918, Mary was known for her ability to bloom where she was planted, competitive gamesmanship and perfect pie crusts. Mary and Theodore J. Palmer married on September 4, 1938, and remained each other’s soft place to fall until Ted’s death in 2008. Mary is survived by her four children: Jane Palmer (Warren Dillon), Nancy McKinnon (Doug), Carol Kruckeberg (Walt) and Bill Palmer (Kaye); as well as seven grandchildren, Mary Galley (Kevin), Jennifer Rick (Brian), Joseph Gargiulo (Erica), Angela Adams, Andrew Kruckeberg (Sheri), Molly Rose Forsman (Todd), and Carrie Hall (Justin).

Mrs. Palmer Megan and Camille Galley, Anya and Madeline Rick, Kate Gargiulo, Mitchell Adams, Zachary and Alex Kruckeberg, and Mia Rose and Baby Boy Hall. Mary was preceded in death by three sisters, Rosamond, Thora and Ruby; her brother, John; as well as by her granddaughter, Sara Beth Kruckeberg. Although orphaned at an early age, somehow, with no model, Mary became a “homemaker” in the true sense of the word; meals as a family every day, served up in
the kitchen nook, Momsewn school clothes, prom dresses and bridal gowns, matching shirts for family vacations. She gave her kids roots as well as wings. She played all kinds of games from go-fish with the grandkids to bridge with anyone available. She was happily competitive and often said, “You may win, but I’m not going to LET you win” — a game-player’s motto as well as a metaphor for life’s hardships. Cruising with the family for their 60th wedding anniversary, Mom and Dad even won the ship’s “Newlywed Game.” In her last three years, Mary extended her family to include the beyondbelief caregivers at Sherwood Assisted Living. The entire Sherwood staff provided unparalleled love and support at a difficult time for “Mary Blue Eyes” as well as for her family. Mary says, “Thank you and behave yourselves!” A private celebration of our mom’s life will be held in Bellingham on Mothers Day.
sisters Dolores and Della; and great-grandson Maxwell Jeremiah Berry preceded her in death. She was the oldest and last of the siblings. She is survived by son Bruce and wife Bettyanne; four grandsons, Michael (Barrie), Timm (Cheryl), William (Wendy), and Jason (Donna); four greatgranddaughters and six great-grandsons. She enjoyed fishing, crabbing, clamming and camping as well as family get-togethers. At her request there will be no service. She will be dearly missed.

PORT ANGELES — A bail hearing for Amber Steim scheduled earlier this week was postponed to give lawyers more time to consult with a treatment provider. Clallam C o u n t y Superior Court Judge Ken Williams struck the hearing on Tuesday. A new hear- Steim ing date was not set. Steim, 24, is charged with vehicular homicide and witness tampering in connection with the March 6 death of Ellen DeBondt, a 44-year-old outdoorswoman and home health nurse from Crescent Bay. Investigators said Steim was driving nearly three times over the legal limit for alcohol when she crossed the center line on state HIghway 112 just outside of Port Angeles and struck DeBondt’s vehicle. Steim awaits a Feb. 13 trial on $500,000 bail in the Clallam County jail. Steim, who originally posted $100,000 bail, was remanded back to jail Dec. 14 after the alcohol monitoring device she was wearing detected alcohol in her system. In a four-minute hearing on a motion to modify Steim’s conditions of release, defense attorney Ralph Anderson reported Tuesday that he has spoken with a substance abuse treatment provider who recommended inpatient treatment for Steim. Anderson moved to continue the hearing to gather more information from the expert.

Something special for this Christmas It is the same in every war. Memories of Christmases past can only add to the pain, especially for those experiencing their first Christmas without a loved one opening presents and eating their fill at the dinner table. On Monday, I drove past Arlington National Cemetery near the Pentagon. It is fitting that the building where war is made would be in such close proximity to the graves of those who died fighting them. Veterans cemeteries ought to remind civilians, as well as generals, that war should never be entered into lightly, but rather always as a last resort. Every Christmas, volunteers place wreaths on each of the headstones in Arlington. The tableau could be a Christmas card, except such a card would express sorrow, not joy. There is a show on Fox News Channel called “The Cost of Freedom.” It’s about money.
There’s a grief that can’t be spoken. There’s a pain goes on and on. Empty chairs at empty tables Now my friends are dead and gone. — Marius, from the musical “Les Miserables” “IT’S THE MOST wonder- Cal ful time of the Thomas year,” Andy Williams reminds us over tinny speakers in crowded shopping malls. It may be wonderful for the majority, but for those whose fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers or children have died in Iraq and Afghanistan, there is a void this Christmas (and Christmases to come) that can never be filled.
The grave markers at Arlington and at veterans cemeteries around the nation are the true cost of freedom, which has always been paid, not with cash but with blood. Freedom is not the natural state of humanity, otherwise more of us would be free. Oppression, discrimination, religious fanaticism, hunger, dictatorship, censorship of the press, denial of women’s rights — these seem to be the norm. To be free means to rail against such injustice. Christians believe Jesus came to set us free from sin. Those who have died in our wars fought and gave their lives that we might have our many freedoms, including the religious freedom to hear and accept or reject his message. Passing Arlington, I recall a line from one of our wonderful patriotic songs, “America, the Beautiful,” which says of our war dead, “O beautiful for heroes
Peninsula Voices Wild Olympics In a recent Peninsula Voices letter [Dec. 18], the writer said she is a supporter of the Wild Olympics Campaign, that she is a regular hiker in the Olympic park and surrounding areas, and that she is concerned that the recent compromises that Sen. [Patty] Murray and Rep. [Norm] Dicks made with opponents of the campaign might have limited how much more land the campaign could acquire. After meeting with a staff member and scanning some material, she is satisfied that the
compromises will allow the campaign to continue to move forward. One must assume that to the two officials involved in the negotiations, moving forward means federalizing more locally controlled and/ or private property. According to the Oxford History of the American West, by 1994 almost half of the total land area of the 11 westernmost states in the Lower 48, including 86 percent of Nevada, was owned or administered by federal agencies such as the Interior, Agriculture and Defense. The effect has been the nationalization of Western America and the loss of
local control with all of the negative ramifications that entails. I believe the people who support the Wild Olympics Campaign should ask themselves how much federalizing of local property will they finally, if ever, be satisfied. John Joseph Malone, Port Angeles

proved in liberating strife, who more than self their country loved, and mercy more than life!” In a narcissistic age this may seem odd, even offensive to those whose favorite nouns are “I” and “me.” Perhaps that’s why so many of us don’t know anyone who has served in the military. It’s called military “service,” after all. Making money serves self. If we haven’t served in the armed forces, it is less likely we would know people who are serving, or have served. I served, albeit not on the battlefield, making my contribution as part of Armed Forces Radio in the 1960s. As the ads and emails suggest last-minute gift ideas, here’s a suggested gift that will last longer in your heart than any purchase you make for yourself or your family: Find someone who has lost a loved one to war and take them a present.
It doesn’t have to be expensive. Tell them, “I wanted to bring you a gift in recognition of the gift your loved one gave our country.” If you don’t know anyone, search online for organizations that assist families whose loved ones paid the ultimate price for our country. If you do that, I suspect this Christmas will be unforgettable for the person on the receiving end of your compassion. It could also be a transforming event in your own life and a Christmas you will never forget.

Why we should be saving Pvt. Manning ACCUSED WHISTLEBLOWER Pvt. Bradley Manning turned 24 Saturday. He spent his birthday in a pre-trial military hearing that could ultimately lead to a sentence of life — or death. Manning stands accused of causing the largest leak of government secrets in United States history. More on Amy Manning Goodman shortly. First, a reminder of what he is accused of leaking. In April 2010, the whistle-blower website WikiLeaks released a video called “Collateral Murder.” It was a classified U.S. military video from July 2007 from an Apache attack helicopter over Baghdad. The video shows a group of men walking, then the systematic killing of them in a barrage of high-powered automatic fire from the helicopter. Soldiers’ radio transmissions narrate the carnage, varying from cold and methodical to cruel and enthusiastic. Two of those killed were employees of the international news agency Reuters: Namir
Noor-Eldeen, a photojournalist, and Saeed Chmagh, his driver. Renowned whistle-blower Daniel Ellsberg, who released the Pentagon Papers that helped end the war in Vietnam and who himself is a Marine veteran who trained soldiers on the laws of war, told me: “Helicopter gunners hunting down and shooting an unarmed man in civilian clothes, clearly wounded . . . that shooting was murder. It was a war crime. “Not all killing in war is murder, but a lot of it is. And this was.” The WikiLeaks release of the Afghan War Logs followed months later, with tens of thousands of military field reports. Then came the Iraq War Diaries, with close to 400,000 military records of the U.S. war in Iraq. Next was Cablegate, WikiLeaks’ rolling release (with prominent print-media partners, from The New York Times to The Guardian in Britain) of classified U.S. State Department cables — more than a quarter-million of them — dating from as far back as 1966 up to early 2010. The contents of these cables proved highly embarrassing to the U.S. government and sent shock waves around the world. Among the diplomatic cables released were those detailing U.S. support for the corrupt Tunisian regime, which helped fuel the uprising there.

18 months ago. Since his arrest, Manning has been in solitary confinement, for much of the time in Quantico, Va., under conditions so harsh that the U.N. special rapporteur on torture is investigating. Many believe the U.S. government is trying to break Manning in order to use him in its expected case of espionage against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. It also sends a dramatic message to any potential whistleblower: “We will destroy you.” For now, Manning sits attentively, reports say, facing possible death for “aiding the enemy.” The prosecution offered words Manning allegedly wrote to Assange as evidence of his guilt. In the email, Manning described the leak as “one of the more significant documents of our time, removing the fog of war and revealing the true nature of 21st century asymmetrical warfare.” History will no doubt use the same words as irrefutable proof of Manning’s courage.

A wish list for the fat fellow THROW OUT THE tube socks, Santa. I’ve got more than enough whites to survive another wet North Olympic Peninsula winter. What I really want this holiMatt day season can’t be stuffed into a Schubert stocking or thrown under the tree. Rather, I have a few yuletide wishes of the sporting variety. So summon up some of that Christmas magic, and give your overburdened elfin workforce a day off. There will be no Occupy North Pole demonstration on my account. Consider it a trade off for all the times I’ve been naughty this season (think more Bart Simpson and less Tiger Woods.) I know you’re a busy man, Mr. Claus, so without further ado, here’s the list: ■ Ridge return — The holiday season is here and Hurricane Ridge is still hurtin’ for snow. If we could get a couple more feet, it wouldn’t be long before skiers and snowboarders could enjoy the Ridge with the luxury of an operational rope tows. This might fall under Jack Frost’s purview, but it never hurts to ask. ■ Pujols in peril — Maybe it’s not in the holiday spirit to wish ill on another, but perhaps there are exceptions? After all, we are talking about a man — ex-St. Louis Cardinal slugger Albert Pujols — who broke the hearts of millions just so he could go from “wealthy” to “moderately wealthier.” The Los Angeles Angels of Disneyland lured Pujols away from a World Series champion in a baseball crazy city with a 10-year, $254-million deal. (You know, because a 9-year, $210-million contract was hardly appreciative enough of the future Hall of Famer.) I’m not asking for any injuries or personal problems, Santa. I’d just like to see Pujols’ skills diminish so abruptly that he rues the day he chose the Rally Monkey over the most loyal fanbase in all of baseball. ■ Ring for the Ferrets — The Felonious Ferrets, my fantasy football team, find themselves in the Front Porch League title game for the second year in a row. Given all the time and effort I’ve put into making the franchise a winner — we’re talking hours of waiver wire sifting, trade talks and predraft strategy sessions — I think it’s only right that I come away with a championship ring. Trust me, this isn’t about the money, Santa. It’s about sticking it in the faces of all my old high school buddies. (OK, and maybe it’s a little bit about the money, too.) ■ Association return — It’s been four long years since the Seattle SuperSonics left the Emerald City for dustier pastures down in Oklahoma City. I think that’s a long enough time in professional basketball purgatory for the jewel of the Pacific Northwest — an area responsible for such NBA immortals as John Stroeder and Brian Scalabrine. At this point, I’ll take anything; even that mess of a franchise down in New Orleans. Just make sure NBA Commissioner David Stern isn’t running the show. If there’s anyone who’s been naughty, it’s that guy.

Touchdown maker Lynch goes up against stout 49er run defense BY TIM BOOTH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
RENTON — Marshawn Lynch knows exactly how significant it would be for the Seattle Seahawks to be the first team this season to score a rushing touchdown on San Francisco. And in typical Lynch fashion, his answer had nothing to do with his current franchise-record streak of 10 consecutive games with at least one touchdown. “Points on the board get us closer to a victory,” Lynch said. The Seahawks’ midseason turnaround began because of their recommitment to being a run-first team, relying on the angry power running of Lynch to turn a 2-6 start

Spartans unbeaten in league PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
TENINO — The Forks boys basketball team is going into winter break on a high note. The Spartans remained unbeaten in SWL-Evergreen Division play after beating Tenino 53-43 on Tuesday night. Braden Decker and Tyler Penn combined for 33 as the Spartans (3-0 in league, 5-1 overall) won their fourth in a row. “This was a big win for us,” coach Scott Justus said. “Anytime you can win at Tenino, it is a big win. This is a tough place to play.” Decker canned a game-high 18 points while Tyler Penn added 15. Brady Castellano brought down eight rebounds, while Tyler Penn had seven and Decker six. Point guard Jonah Penn dished out a team-high six assists, and Decker, Tyler Penn and Jonah Penn earned four steals each. Michael Dean, meanwhile, came off the bench to grab five important boards for the Spartans. “Those were big rebounds for us because that’s something that Michael doesn’t normally do,” Justus said. Forks hosts Neah Bay tonight in a nonleague rematch of their Dec. 10 game that the Spartans won 50-33. The Spartans will then get a week off before heading to the North Beach Christmas Classic on Dec. 29 and 30. KEITH THORPE/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Riders win ugly McCartney scores 22 in PA’s 6th straight victory BY MATT SCHUBERT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Hayden McCartney got the dunk he was looking for. But as the senior’s puffed-up bloody lip illustrated, the Port Angeles boys basketball team’s 58-42 victory over North Kitsap on Tuesday was far from pretty. McCartney sparked a shaky Rider offense with 22 points, eight rebounds, seven steals, five assists and one thunderous stuff, helping Port Angeles come up with enough bursts to get past the Vikings.
It was the sixth straight Olympic League win for Port Angeles (6-1 in league, 7-1), which played without 6-foot-8 senior post Easton Napiontek in the lineup for the first time this winter. “It’s good for us to work with him not being in there,” Rider coach Wes Armstrong said. “At times we struggled a little bit, but I was really pleased with how we played in spurts.” Napiontek tweaked his back last week in a win over Klahowya. With the Riders starting a twoweek stretch that includes only one league game — they host a holiday tournament next week —
this was as good a time as any to rest him. McCartney more than filled in the gaps, hitting 8 of 14 shots from the field and making plays on both ends of the court. His final three baskets of the second quarter punctuated a 12-0 run that put Port Angeles ahead 27-18 going into the break. That included a two-handed breakaway dunk that woke up a relatively sedate home crowd on winter break. “I’ve kind of been waiting for an opportunity all season,” McCartney said. “I got the ball and just as I got it I heard one of my coaches yell out, ‘Dunk it!’ “I looked and I saw [teammate] Reggie [Burke] running in front of me, but I figured that I could make it for the dunk. I thought it would be pretty sweet.” TURN

Hawks: Running into a brick wall CONTINUED FROM B1 According to STATS LLC, whose database goes back to 1932, the fewest touchdowns rushing allowed through an entire season is two — set by the 1934 Detroit Lions, 1968 Dallas Cowboys and 1971 Minnesota Vikings. “I don’t have too much to say. History speaks for itself,” Seattle center Max Unger said. “It’s pretty impressive.” It’s not that San Francisco has just been good at stopping the run near the goal line. They’ve been shutting running backs down all over the field and not just this season.
San Francisco has gone 36 straight games without allowing an individual 100yard rusher, and its 71.5 yards per game allowed this season on the ground is nearly 20 yards per game better than second-place Baltimore. Philadelphia in Week 4 is the only team this season to top 100 yards rushing against the 49ers. “It’s a big goal to stop the run. You don’t set up on your goal board at the beginning of the year to not allow a rushing touchdown for the first 14 games of the season. You want to be good against the run, you want to stop the run,” San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh said.

The back San Francisco is being asked to stop this week could be among the most challenging this season. Lynch saw his string of 100-yard efforts snapped last week at Chicago, but he still found the end zone twice in the Seahawks’ 38-14 win. He’s got 11 touchdowns rushing for the season, all of them in his past 10 games. “Marshawn is running that ball — like I told guys, he’s running like he just got out of jail or something,” 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers said. “He’s running that ball hard. It’s going to be a challenge, and just going into their place is a challenge with the way they’re playing.”
What Lynch and the Seahawks have accomplished is even more impressive considering the losses on the offensive line. Three starters — Russell Okung, John Moffitt and James Carpenter — have all gone down with seasonending injuries during Seattle’s run of success this season. Lynch called Paul McQuistan the team’s MVP after McQuistan first stepped in for Moffitt at right guard, only to switch to left tackle when Okung went down. “Just to see the way that they’re being coached to where it’s not an individual player but a position is really good,” Lynch said.
The slam followed McCartney’s second straight steal near the end of the second quarter, when the Rider press stirred an offense that hit just 2 of 15 shots to begin the game With the Vikings scrambling in the final minute, the Riders followed it up with two offensive rebounds on their final first-half possession before McCartney buried a 3-point shot moments before the buzzer. “I thought the first half we had so many opportunities to move out by 6, 8, 10 points,” North Kitsap coach Tony Chisholm said. “We missed opportunities in the second quarter. We could have went in with a nice lead, and then you get that momentum swing and we’re all right. Well, it didn’t work out that way.” Instead, the Riders took advantage of a North Kitsap (2-4, 2-5) team missing starting point guard Jacob Hill. The Vikings turned the ball over 23 times without their lead ball handler — 10 in the second quarter alone — and never could find a comfort zone. The Riders looked equally unstable without Napiontek in the middle against North Kitsap’s matchup zone. It wasn’t until midway through the third quarter that they began to hit their stride. Senior Reggie Burke sank a coast-to-coast lay-in and Cole Uvila drained the first of two third-quarter 3-pointers to spark a 15-1 Rider run. The ball moved and the Riders knocked down shots to surge ahead 43-24 going into the fourth. “We didn’t have that confidence to start off the game,” McCartney said. “We’ve got great shooters on the team, especially with our inside presence. “We’ve really got to work the inside out and try and avoid the one pass and shoot.
“When we’re patient is when we really do our best.” Burke scored eight of his 13 points in the third quarter, including a fastbreak lay-up at the buzzer off a long pass from McCartney. McCartney opened the fourth quarter with a lay-in, fed Burke for a 3, and was then fouled hard on another fastbreak bucket, resulting in a bloody lip and a hasty trip to the locker room. The Riders were ahead 52-24 at that point, and there was no reason to bring the senior back in. “Hayden is such a great senior leader,” Armstrong said. “He plays with such heart and emotion. “He was the catalyst defensively for us.” Burke had a solid allaround game of his own for the Riders, adding eight rebounds and five assists to his 13-point night. Port Angeles dished out 15 assists as a team, with Cameron Braithwaite and Uvila each adding two apiece. Uvila also had 10 points. Even with Napiontek out, the Riders out-rebounded North Kitsap 36-28, 20 coming on the offensive glass. It still ended up being an incomplete performance for the Riders, however, as they turned the ball over 17 times and shot 33.8 percent from the field (22 of 65). “I think our defense is what got us going,” Armstrong said. “That’s a good cure for a bad offense. Good defense gets transition buckets on the other end. “I was pleased with that, but it was an ugly win. “Overall we’re not that pleased with our effort, but we did just enough in spurts.” Port Angeles 58, North Kitsap 42 North Kitsap Port Angeles

Largest-ever fair-lending settlement told by DOJ Bank of America to pay for Countrywide failures THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Bank of America agreed to pay $335 million to resolve allegations that its Countrywide unit engaged in a widespread pattern of discrimination against qualified African-American and Hispanic borrowers on home loans. The settlement with the U.S. Justice Department was filed Wednesday with the Central District Court of California and is subject to court approval. The DOJ said it’s the largest settlement in history over residential fair lending practices. According to the DOJ’s complaint, Countrywide charged more than 200,000 African-American and Hispanic borrowers higher fees and interest rates than nonHispanic white borrowers
Shoppers bring joy to retail world THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Dan Frahm, a Bank of America spokesman, said in a statement that the bank does not practice lending based on race. “We discontinued Countrywide products and practices that were not in keeping with our commitment and will continue to resolve and put behind us the remaining Countrywide issues,” Frahm said.
Hispanics, blacks hurt Justice’s complaint says that Countrywide was aware that the fees and interest rates that its loan officers were charging discriminated against AfricanAmerican and Hispanic borrowers but failed to impose meaningful limits or guidelines to stop it. By steering borrowers
into subprime loans from 2004 to 2007, the complaint alleges, Countrywide harmed those qualified African-American and Hispanic borrowers. Subprime loans generally carried costlier terms, such as prepayment penalties and significantly higher adjustable interest rates that increased suddenly after two or three years, making the payments unaffordable and leaving the borrowers at a much higher risk of foreclosure. The settlement amount will be used to compensate victims of Countrywide’s discriminatory mortgage loans from 2004 through 2007, when Countrywide originated millions of residential mortgage loans as the nation’s largest singlefamily mortgage lenders.
Coal plants must reduce emissions or shut down THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — The largest remaining source of uncontrolled toxic air pollution in the United States, the nation’s coal- and oilfired power plants, will be forced to reduce their emissions or shut down, under a federal regulation released Wednesday. The long-overdue national standards for mercury and other toxic pollutants are the first to be applied to nation’s oldest and dirtiest power plants. About half of the 1,300 coal- and oil-fired units nationwide still lack modern pollution controls, despite the Environmental Protection Agency in 1990 getting the authority from Congress to control toxic air pollution from power plant smokestacks. A decade later, in 2000, the agency concluded it was necessary to clamp down on
the emissions to protect public health. Decades of litigation and changing political winds have allowed power plants to keep running without addressing their full environmental and public health costs. EPA administrator Lisa Jackson said in a statement that the standards “will protect millions of families and children from harmful and costly air pollution and provide the American people with health benefits that far outweigh the costs.” The rule ranks as one of the most expensive in the EPA’s history, with an estimated $9.6 billion price tag. Its release comes after intense lobbying from power producers and criticism from Republicans, who said the rule would threaten jobs and electric reliability and raise electricity prices. To ease those concerns,
the administration will encourage states to make “broadly available” an additional fourth year to comply with the rule, as allowed by the law. Case-by-case extensions could also be granted to address local reliability issues, according to a presidential memorandum to Jackson. An AP survey of 55 power plants producers found that more than 32 mostly coalfired power plants in a dozen states would retire because of the regulation issued Wednesday and because of another rule aimed at reducing pollution downwind from power plants. The survey found, however, that the power plant retirements alone would not cause homes to go dark: Another 36 power plants may have to shut down because it would be cheaper than complying with the rule.

procedures in their haste to finish the rules. The board rushed to approve the new rules before the end of the year, when the term of Democratic member Craig Becker expires. The board currently has only three members instead of the usual five, and the Supreme Court has ruled that it can’t issue any decisions with less than three members in place. Congressional Republicans have blocked President Barack Obama from filling vacant posts on the board, and lawmakers have used procedural tactics to prevent Obama from bypassing the Senate to make recess appointments.
CES tech show last for Microsoft NEW YORK — Microsoft Corp. is pulling out of the International Consumer Electronics Show, the largest trade show in the Americas, joining Apple in saying that it prefers to put on its own events when the time is right to show off its products. Microsoft said the next show, to be held Jan. 9-12 in Las Vegas, will be the last show at which it has a booth or the CEO delivers the customary kickoff speech. Company founder Bill Gates delivered keynote speeches at the show for 11 straight years. Current CEO Steve Ballmer has delivered the speech for the past three shows and will present his last next month. The software company has been one of the biggest U.S. supporters of the annual event, which gathered nearly 150,000 people this year. Originally focused on living-room electronics, the show has become the big annual U.S. event for all consumer technology after the demise of big computer-focused shows such as Comdex. Microsoft says it will continue to use CES as a place to connect to customers, but it won’t have a booth because its product milestones don’t align with the show’s January timing.

WASHINGTON — In a win for organized labor, the National Labor Relations Board on Wednesday approved sweeping new rules that would speed the pace of union elections, making it easier for unions to gain members at companies that have long rebuffed them. Business groups quickly denounced the move, saying it limits the time that employers have to educate workers about the impact of joining a union. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has already filed a federal lawsuit challenging the rules. The rules, which take effect April 30, simplify procedures and reduce legal delays that can hold up union elections after employees at a work site gather enough signatures to form a union. Most union elections currently take place 45 days to 60 days after a union gathers enough signatures to file a petition. The rules could shorten that time by several weeks, depending on the situation. Many employers use the time leading up to an election to talk to workers about the cost and impact of joining a union. But union officials claim the lag time is often used to pressure or intimidate workers against forming a union.
While union leaders publicly tried to play down the new rules as a modest development, labor experts called the change significant. Unions have seen their ranks dwindle steadily over the last three decades to 11.9 percent of the workforce. The rules were approved by the board’s two Democratic members. Its lone Republican, Brian Hayes, has not yet cast his vote, but he is expected to cast a dissenting opinion sometime before the rule takes effect. Hayes is so strongly opposed to the plan that he threatened to quit the commission last month, claiming its Democratic members were ignoring longstanding
NEW YORK — The holiday shopping season is wrapping up to be bigger than anyone expected. Now, retailers are holding their breath and hoping consumers will keep spending in the final days before Christmas. Sales from November through Saturday rose 2.5 percent, compared with the same period a year ago, according to research firm ShopperTrak, which did not give a dollar figure. Online, shoppers have spent almost $32 billion online for the holiday season so far, a 15 percent increase from a year ago, according to comScore, which tracks Web use. Stores are expected to ring up $469.1 billion during the holiday season, according to the National Retail Federation, nation’s largest retail trade group. Heading into the holidays, retailers were nervous that Americans were so scared about another recession that they wouldn’t do much shopping. In fact, consumers themselves told consulting firm Deloitte in September that they planned to spend about 5 percent less on Christmas this year. That led stores to begin discounting earlier in the season, opening as early as Thanksgiving Day, and offering profitbusting incentives, including free shipping on clothes and juicy financing deals on furniture. Despite all the worrying, though, the season has been a lot brighter than expected. As a result, the National Retail Federation recently upgraded its forecast for holiday sales to increase 3.8 percent, up from its 2.8 percent forecast in October.
with a similar credit profile. The complaint says that these borrowers were charged higher fees and rates because of their race or national origin rather than any other objective criteria. “These institutions should make judgments based on applicants’ creditworthiness, not on the color of their skin,” said Attorney General Eric Holder. “With today’s settlement, the federal government will ensure that the more than 200,000 African-American and Hispanic borrowers who were discriminated against by Countrywide will be entitled to compensation.” Charlotte, N.C.-based Bank of America Corp. bought the nation’s largest subprime lender, Countrywide Financial Corp., in 2008.

Taurus needs voltage test Dear Doctor: My 2002 Ford Taurus had trouble with some interior lights, electric windows and the moonroof not functioning after starting. After driving a few minutes everything was normal. Then it had additional trouble of not starting. After sitting for two days, it started and ran fine. I replaced the Gem box with an identical-numbered one and everything was fine. Now, it won’t start again. I replaced the Gem box again, but the problem persists. Is there something powering the Gem box that needs replacing? Bob Dear Bob: The Gem module (aka body computer or body module) handles a lot of driver inputs. Before replacing any module, check for trouble fault codes and perform a voltage test at all inputs and outputs. If I were working on this car, I would check all the basic power and grounds. Next, would be research on our Identifix website to view all other vehicles with similar problems. Alldata has all the wire

that really does work. The original blue color, often-discounted washer fluid, is great for the summer months and in nonfreezing conditions.
I think it’s defective and should not have rotted out. My mechanic suggested replacing the lines with stainless steel lines. What are your thoughts? Stan Dear Stan: Brake lines and other metal lines, gas lines and transmission lines are also included in the rotting. GM is not alone with this problem. The reason for the rotted lines is simple: poor quality, cheap metal. I own a 2004 Silverado with 27,000 miles, and I had to replace all the brake lines and transmission lines at a cost of $1,600 at my shop. I was able to purchase some of the lines from GM, the others we made up. You do not have to use stainless steel. There is a metal line called coated bundy flex that is easy to work with and will not rot.
