A car stuck in the mud at low tide Sunday night was floating in Dungeness Bay near Cline Spit on Monday morning when Clallam County sheriff’s deputies were notified by neighbors and the car’s owner. The owner of the 1994 Subaru station wagon, Chris Conrardy, who is in his 20s, told deputies that the car became mired after he drove it onto the beach at low tide Sunday night. He abandoned it, thinking he would tow it out Monday, said Detective Sgt. Lyman Moores. The car was empty when deputies found it, and Conrardy told them that he was the only person in the car at the time. The matter was turned over to the Coast Guard, and the car was expected to be towed out at low tide Monday.

Ed Haber, a Zen Buddhist, will open and close the Nov. 20 interfaith Thanksgiving service by sounding the Han, on which the calligraphy says, “Don’t waste time — awake.”

You get the gist.

PORT TOWNSEND — The American tradition of Thanksgiving dates back to a communal dinner on a rocky coastline almost four centuries ago. But the tradition of celebrating the harvest, of thanking the creator for the gifts of the earth, goes back thousands of years and has roots in every culture. On Sunday at 4 p.m. a community Thanksgiving service will be held at the Northwest Maritime Center that brings together traditions from the four corners of the world. Sponsored by Interfaith in Action, the service is not a blending of spiritual practices, but a weaving of cultural and religious threads. “We are bringing from our individual traditions various components that relate to the Thanksgiving theme,” said the Rev. Bruce Bode of Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. Bode is a member of Interfaith in Action, a group of local ministers and congregational leaders who came together to start an Earth Day service two years ago. Held at the Northwest Mari-

PORT ANGELES — Republican Jim ­McEntire was the apparent winner Monday in his race against Democrat Linda Barnfather for Clallam County commissioner as he stretched his margin to more than 1,000 votes in a fourth Buhler count of last Tuesday’s ballots. In another close race, Sissi Bruch, 51, also maintained her lead over incumbent Deputy Mayor Don Perry, 66, for his Port Angeles City Council seat, and Perry conceded. McEntire, 61, increased his lead to 52 percent, or 13,228 votes to Barnfather’s 48 percent, or 12,169 votes, for the Sequimarea District 1 position in two counts of votes conducted by the county elections office Monday. Bruch “I think it’s fairly conclusive at this point,” McEntire said after learning of the results counted Monday morning. “The voters responded well to my campaign message of keeping taxes low and trying to push our economy along. I congratulate Linda on a hard-fought race.” Barnfather, 48, did not concede before Monday’s second count, but said it was “unlikely” she could make up the difference. Turn

time Center, the first Earth Day observance drew 250 people, he said. The group planned a community interfaith Thanksgiving service last year, but it was snowed out.

Music, poetry The Thanksgiving service is appropriate for all ages, and consists mainly of music, plus poetry and readings. Mason Stanculescu, a Chimacum student, will play the cello, accompanied by pianist Nan Toby Tyrrell and Teren MacLeod on violin. Centrum director John MacElwee, who plays jazz bass, will accompany vocalist Robin Bessier. Walter Vaux, a member of First Presbyterian Church, will play the ukulele and sing “It’s a Wonderful Life,” with Art Carpenter from Peninsula United Church of Christ. “It’s a secular song, but it is one of the best examples of expressing gratitude for God’s creation,” said Barb Laski, a leader of Peninsula United Church of Christ, a recentlyformed home-based church.

County considers sales tax attempt for law, justice By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Should Clallam County voters be asked to consider a penny per $10 purchase sales tax hike to support law and justice services? That’s a question the three county commissioners will try to answer in the coming weeks. County Administrator Jim Jones said Monday that the juvenile services department is losing money at a rate that can’t be sustained. The one-tenth of 1 percent “juvenile detention facilities and jail” sales tax increase is one taxing option that commissioners will consider putting on a special election ballot in February. The sales tax would generate nearly $1 million per year to maintain mandated public safety services that the county provides. Jones said juvenile services costs have been rising at three times the rate of inflation statewide. Turn

ILLIAM ARAMONY, 84, who built the United Way of America into a philanthropic powerhouse before leaving in disgrace and serving six years in prison for fraud, has died after a long battle with cancer. Mr. Aramony, a son of Lebanese immigrants, was the United Way’s chief executive from 1970 to Mr. Aramony 1992. in 1995 He resigned after using the organization’s money to fund a lavish lifestyle, including gifts for a girlfriend who was 17 when they first met. Mr. Aramony’s son, Robert Aramony, said his father died Friday in Alexandria, Va., at the son’s home. William Aramony dedicated his time after his 2001 release from prison to peace-building efforts in the Middle East, his son said. “At heart, that’s what he was, a social worker,” Robert Aramony said. “He did it his whole life.” At the United Way, Aramony built a tangled web of disparate organizations into one of the nation’s bestknown charitable groups. Revenue at United Way increased from less than $800 million to more than

She would not say how or when he died. Diaspora, an alternative to Facebook, was founded by four New York University students in 2010. The site lets users keep control over their photos, videos and status updates while sharing them with friends. Mr. Zhitomirskiy cofounded the website with Raphael Sofaer, Dan Grippi, and Max Salzber. The group raised more than $200,000 for the project by collecting contributions through the website Kickstarter. According to Zhitomirskiy’s profile on Diaspora, he’s “super passionate about building a world of hacker spaces, maker culture, sharing, cycling, and life satisfaction.” In a September 2010 interview with New York Magazine, Zhitomirskiy said he wanted social network users to migrate to websites that were more transparent about privacy policies. ________ Zhitomirskiy said he and ILYA ZHITOMIRSKIY, his co-founders didn’t set out to make money when 22, one of the founders of they created Diaspora but the social networking site to instead provide an “open Diaspora, has died. platform” for users.

The now-familiar structure of using United Way to facilitate payroll deductions at charity campaigns run through the workplace blossomed under Mr. Aramony’s guidance. The United Way’s highprofile partnership with the National Football League also took hold under Mr. Aramony. But the charity’s successes were eclipsed by the scandal surrounding Mr. Aramony’s spending habits. Prosecutors argued that Mr. Aramony’s spending on personal luxuries with United Way funds constituted a fraud on donors who expected their money would go to charity. At his federal trial in 1995 in Alexandria, Virginia, where United Way is based, prosecutors and court officials estimated that he defrauded donors of anywhere from $600,000 to $1.2 million over a 10-year period.

Briefly: Nation 5 former State chiefs press for foreign aid WASHINGTON — Five former secretaries of State are warning Congress against deep cuts in U.S. foreign aid. In a letter circulated Monday by the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition, the five said international spending advances U.S. interests overseas, tackles the causes of conflict and extremism, and shows America’s global leadership. The letter comes as the Senate this week considers a $53.3 billion spending bill for the State Department and foreign operations for the fiscal year that began Oct. 1. Citing the growing U.S. deficit, lawmakers are expected to offer amendments to cut foreign aid. Signing the letter were Henry Kissinger, George Shultz, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, who worked for Republican presidents, and Madeleine Albright, who served in the Democratic Clinton administration.

Occupy Oakland camp OAKLAND, Calif. — Riotclad law enforcement officers cleared out Oakland’s weeks-old anti-Wall Street encampment early Monday, arresting Occupy demonstrators and removing tents from a downtown plaza after issuing several warnings over the weekend.

Protesters appeared to put up little resistance, and officers could be seen calmly leading some demonstrators away in plastic handcuffs. Warnings from authorities had been similar to those issued before officers used tear gas and bean bag projectiles to clear the encampment Oct. 25. Officers made 32 arrests during Monday’s raid, Police Chief Howard Jordan said, adding that there were no reports of injuries to officers or protesters. The action came a day after police drove hundreds of antiWall Street demonstrators from weeks-old encampments in Portland, Ore.,arresting more than 50 people.

Abramoff case WASHINGTON — Ex-lobbyist Jack Abramoff’s former partner in crime shouldn’t expect relief on his appeal to reduce a $20 million restitution order. The chief of the federal appeals court in Washington, Judge David Sentelle, told Michael Scanlon’s lawyer at arguments Monday the court cannot change his client’s plea agreement. The court will issue its final order in writing. Scanlon is serving a 20-month sentence for bilking Indian tribes of millions. Abramoff persuaded the tribes that hired him for lobbying to pay inflated fees for Scanlon’s public relations services, and they secretly split the profits. The Associated Press

Briefly: World Jordan’s king urges Assad to step down BEIRUT — Jordan’s King Abdullah said Tuesday that Syrian President Bashar Assad should step down, making him the first Arab ruler to issue such a call over the regime’s deadly crackdown on an 8-month-old uprising. The surprising statement comes as Arabs close ranks against Damascus. On Saturday, the Arab League voted to suspend Syria over attacks on protesters that the U.N. estimates have killed 3,500 people since mid-March. “If Bashar (Assad) has the interest of his country, he would step down, but he would also create an ability to reach out and start a new phase of Syrian political life,” Abdullah told the BBC in an interview. Damascus had no immediate public comment. Earlier Monday, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem accused Arab nations of conspiring against Damascus, calling Saturday’s near-unanimous vote at the Arab League’s headquarters in Cairo “shameful and malicious.”

Palestinian taxes JERUSALEM — Israeli Cabinet ministers decided Monday to hold on to some $100 million in taxes owed to the Palestinians, an official said, despite warnings from Israel’s Defense

Ministry that the measure could threaten the stability of the Palestinian government in the West Bank. Israel stopped transfer of tax funds as punishment for the Palestinian’s successful bid for admission to the United Nations’ cultural agency UNESCO, which was part of a larger effort to gain admission as a state in the world body. Israel believes creation of a Palestinian state must be achieved through negotiations and charges that the U.N. bid is one of a series of steps to bring unwarranted pressure on the Jewish state. Israeli defense officials have said funding cutoffs threaten Abbas’ moderate Palestinian Authority, which employs tens of thousands of people, including security forces whose work at preventing attacks on Israelis has won praise from Israel and the United States in the past.

Health care case will go to court this term The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court said Monday it will hear arguments next March over President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul — a case that could shake the political landscape as voters are deciding if Obama deserves another term. This decision to hear arguments in the spring sets up an election-year showdown over the White House’s main domestic policy achievement. And it allows plenty of time for a decision in late June, just over four months before Election Day. The justices announced they will hear an extraordinary 5½ hours of arguments from lawyers on the constitutionality of a provision at the heart of the law and three other related questions about the act. The central provision in question is the requirement that individuals buy health insurance

starting in 2014 or pay a penalty. In the modern era, the last time the court allotted anywhere near this much time for arguments was in 2003 for consideration of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform. That case consumed four hours of argument. This argument may spread over two days, as the justices rarely hear more than two or three hours a day.

Extending coverage The 2010 health care overhaul law aims to extend insurance coverage to more than 30 million Americans, through an expansion of Medicaid, the requirement that individuals buy health insurance starting in 2014 or pay a penalty and other measures. The court’s ruling could decide the law’s fate, but the justices left themselves an opening to defer a decision if they choose, by request-

ing arguments on one lower court’s ruling that a decision must wait until 2015, when one of the law’s many deferred provisions takes effect. A White House spokesman said, “We are pleased that the court has agreed to hear this case.” “We know the Affordable Care Act is constitutional and are confident the Supreme Court will agree,” communications direct Dan Pfeiffer said in a statement. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky called the law an “unprecedented and unconstitutional expansion of the federal government into the daily lives of every American.” The case could become the high court’s most significant and political ruling since its 5-4 decision in the Bush v. Gore case nearly 11 years ago effectively sealed George W. Bush’s 2000 presidential election victory.

Drugs not taken, even if free The Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. — Give people free prescription drugs and many of them still won’t bother to take their medicine. Doctors were stunned to see that happen in a major study involving heart attack survivors. The patients were offered wellestablished drugs to prevent a recurrence of heart trouble, including cholesterol-lowering statins and medicines that slow the heart and help it pump more effectively. “My God, we gave these people the medicines for free and only half took it,” said one of the study’s authors, Dr. Elliott Antman of Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.

Quick Read

In fact, the researchers couldn’t even give the stuff away: They had trouble just signing up patients to take part in the study. Nevertheless, Aetna, the insurance company that footed the bill, thinks this approach will save money in the long run and plans to start offering certain heart drugs free to some patients. In the study, patients offered medicines at no cost suffered fewer heart problems and saved $500 on average over roughly a year. It is no secret many Americans don’t follow their doctors’ instructions. In one survey, one-third said they didn’t fill a prescription or used less medicine than they should because of cost. The researchers in this study

wanted to see what would happen if they took cost out of the equation. The results were disheartening. “Adherence in America is miserable,” lamented Dr. Eric Peterson of Duke University, who had no role in the study. He noted that only 10 percent of the patients were taking all the medicines they should one year after a heart attack. The study was led by Dr. Niteesh Choudhry of Brigham and Women’s, who presented the findings Monday at an American Heart Association conference in Florida. They also were published online by The New England Journal of Medicine.

World: One in 20 adults seen as diabetics by 2030

THE PRESIDENT OF the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said the church should not be dismissed as an outmoded bureaucracy. Archbishop of New York Timothy Dolan said the church is a spiritual family that has much to teach the world. He spoke Monday at the national meeting of American Roman Catholic bishops. Dolan noted that significant numbers of Catholics are leaving as the U.S. becomes less religious. He acknowledged the ideological divisions among Catholics, and he said bishops repent daily for their missteps.

THE EUROPEAN UNION adopted new guidelines Monday on using body scanners at airports, hoping to address the privacy concerns that have delayed their implementation across the continent. Siim Kallas, the EU commissioner responsible for transport, said under the rules the technology will only be used with strict safeguards to protect health and fundamental rights. The scanners, some of which produce nude-like images of passengers, are already used in the United States and elsewhere as a more effective screening of passengers than metal detectors.

THE ANTI-MUSLIM EXTREMIST who confessed to a bombing and shooting massacre that killed 77 people in Norway tried to declare himself a resistance leader Monday at his first public court hearing but was quickly cut off by the judge. Anders Behring Breivik was escorted by guards into an Oslo court room packed with dozens of reporters and spectators, including survivors of his rampage at a youth camp near the capital who were seeing him in person for the first time since the July 22 attack. The judge told him to stick to the issue at hand — his further detention.

THE INTERNATIONAL DIABETES Federation predicts that at least one in 10 adults could have diabetes by 2030, according to its latest statistics. In a report issued on Monday, the advocacy group estimated that 552 million people could have diabetes in two decades’ time based on factors like aging and demographic changes. Currently, the group says, about one adult in 13 has diabetes. The figure includes cases that are undiagnosed. The group expects the number of cases to jump by 90 percent even in Africa, where infectious diseases have previously been the top killer.

PORT ANGELES — Applications for the soon to be vacant Port of Port Angeles commission seat are available beginning today, Jeff Robb, port executive director, said Monday. Commissioner Jim McEntire reconfirmed his resignation effective at the end of the year during Monday’s port commission meeting after his apparent election as Clallam County commissioner. McEntire had faxed his resignation to the port office on Thursday. The application to complete the last two years of McEntire’s six-year term is available at the port offices, 338 W. First St., in Port Angeles.

Application deadline Robb recommended that the deadline for applications be set for Dec. 2, to allow for interviews and a first possible vote at the commission’s Dec. 12 meeting. A replacement must be selected within 90 days of the vacancy, Robb said. Candidates must be registered voters and live within the Port of Port

Angeles District 1 boundary, which is generally east of McDonald Creek to the eastern Jefferson County line. Legal notice and accepting applications are the first steps in the process. The commissioners will determine how to proceed from there, Robb said. Official candidate interviews and the final selection must take place in public session. Port attorney Dave Neupert was directed to research whether commissioners could speak to candidates privately on an individual basis. With only two commissioners able to vote, a tie is possible. If John Calhoun and George Schoenfeldt are deadlocked, the Board of County Commissioners is given the authority to select a replacement, Neupert said. McEntire had faxed a letter of resignation to the port office on Thursday, following Tuesday’s general election. On Monday, McEntire issued a second, slightly amended letter. His Thursday letter said: “I resign my office, effective 8 a.m. Dec. 31, 2011, or

effective the time and date of my being sworn in to the new office to which I have been elected, when such is certified.� The second letter added the phrase “whichever is earlier.� Once he had officially announced his resignation Monday, McEntire sat back to allow Calhoun and Schoenfeldt to plan for his replacement. By state law, McEntire cannot be a part of that process, he said.

Attend conferences After the meeting, McEntire confirmed that he will continue representing the port to the very end, and plans to attend several conferences in November and December. They include the Washington Public Ports Association annual meeting, Dec.79, in Bellevue with Calhoun and Commissioner-elect Jim Hallett. “The public benefits from anything we can do to learn and do better,� McEntire said.

Doors to life will open, girls advised Women in law inspire Sequim HS audience PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — If you make a mistake, your life isn’t over, Port Angeles attorney Karen Unger told a group of 80 girls from Sequim High School during a Women In Networks luncheon last week. “You can always pick yourself up and get back on course to achieve great things,� Unger, a criminal defense attorney, said at the Sequim High School Women In Networks — or WIN — program’s annual luncheon, held at the school’s library Wednesday. “You will have doors shut . . . but there will always be more doors to open,� added Jefferson County District Judge Jill Landes, who was first elected to the bench in 2006 after working as a deputy prosecutor in Clallam, Jefferson and Pierce counties and who was re-elected in 2010.

Effort made to legalize gay marriage Erasing stigma is goal as campaign kicks off By Gene Johnson

The Associated Press

BELLEVUE — Activists launched a campaign Monday to make Washington the seventh state to allow same-sex couples to marry — and quickly received a boost from Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee. “For him, it’s an equal rights issue,” said Inslee spokeswoman Jaime Smith. “He feels really strongly

that the government shouldn’t have a role in preventing a committed couple from enjoying the kind of marriage he has with his wife.” In a news conference at a Bellevue community center, a coalition called Washington United for Marriage announced it would lobby the Legislature to approve a gay marriage law next year. The measure would not grant same-sex couples

any significant new rights — Washington has had an expanded domestic partnership law, the “everything but marriage” law, on the books since 2009. Instead, supporters said, the effort is about erasing the stigma that long-term couples face when they have to introduce their significant others as “my partner,” rather than “my husband,” or “my wife.” “Everyone else has the right to be married, to have that recognized,” said Nancy Woods of Redmond, who attended the kickoff with her partner of 11 years, Jana Simpson, and

their three young children. “When I say, ‘That’s my partner,’ people say, ‘Oh, business partner?’” State Attorney General Rob McKenna, the Republican candidate for governor, supports the state’s domestic partnership law but does not support gay marriage, said his campaign manager, Randy Pepple. “Rob believes that this is an issue that is going to be decided by the voters,” Pepple said. Advocates said Monday they decided to take the issue up with Olympia, rather than in a statewide initiative, because they and

many other people dislike the notion of allowing people to vote on fundamental rights. Asked whether lawmakers are too preoccupied with difficult budget problems to take up the matter, Rod Hearne, executive director of Equal Rights Washington, said he didn’t think so. “This is an opportunity to help families in tough times. It doesn’t cost anything,” he said. Washington United for Marriage will stage a series of suburban town halls in the coming weeks to rally support. Gay marriage is legal in

Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont, as well as the District of Columbia. Gary Randall, president of the conservative Faith and Freedom Network, vowed to fight the effort in a blog post Monday. He said his organization would encourage lawmakers to oppose what he called “the assault on marriage and a crusade to redefine it.” “We believe in marriage. We are willing to defend it,” he said, “despite the scorn sometimes directed at this stand.”

Leadership academy’s goal progressive change Free program aims at skills, confidence Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Retired educator and counselor Bill Kildall has announced the formation of Peninsula Leadership Academy for Progressive Change, a tuition-free program to develop potential community leaders for social, political and economic change. Peninsula Leadership Academy will consist of six three-hour seminars to be held in Clallam County beginning in January. “Service to community has been the focus of my entire career, and I believe more people would be willing to engage in positive social and political change initiatives if they had the

confidence to organize and lead others,” said Kildall of Port Angeles. “Peninsula Leadership Academy will provide an opportunity to enhance leadership skills, as well as develop untapped potential.” Those interested in becoming leader trainees are asked to submit written proposals of projects they would develop and to bring about measurable results for political, social or economic change in the community, Kildall said. Kildall was an organizer of “American Awakening” in Sequim on Sept. 27, an event that drew more than 600 participants from across Clallam, Jefferson and Kitsap counties. He also was an organizer for “Doctors Mad As Hell,” which attracted 700 people to the Sequim High School Auditorium in August 2009. His local community

activities include a stint as coordinator for the Clallam County Chapter of MoveOn. org., and as 24th Legislative District committeeman for the Clallam County Democratic Party. He retired from public education in 1988 to become a licensed mental health counselor in private practice, specializing in the treatment of abuse survivors. He has also served as an expert witness in custody cases involving child abuse and neglect. A native of Washington state, Kildall has a master’s degree in counseling psychology from Pacific Lutheran University and a doctorate in educational leadership from Seattle University. For details about how to apply, contact Kildall at 360452-6387 or drbilly@msn. com.

seemed “emboldened” by community support. Arguing for a 10-month sentence, they portrayed Groen as a man with “angermanagement” problems who never showed remorse. They also cited what they called a disturbing pattern of verbal “harassment” of agents, much of which Groen disputes. A pair of community meetings in the wake of Groen’s arrest drew hundreds of residents, many of whom said they now are fearful of a law-enforcement presence that seems to treat everyone as suspicious. Border Patrol officials insisted they got the message, and reached out to the community in small ways, such as establishing a 24-hour telephone hotline for residents.

Uneasy truce Since then, a sort of uneasy truce has settled across the Nooksack Valley — aided, in some cases, by residents drawing their own figurative lines in the sand. DeHaan installed a twine “gate” across the main gravel road through his back pasture. The gate post holds a sign bearing what he considers something between a warning and a plea: “No Government Vehicles Beyond This Point,” “So far, they’re honoring it,” he said. DeHaan confessed he may have accidentally mowed off a government ground-sensor antenna or two out here while clearing brush. But he insists he would

dealing with drug-runners or illegal border crossers. Still, Sinks said the agency is aware of its image problem, and Homeland Security is responding by beefing up public-relations budgets. That might enable agents to spend more time meeting with community groups. The service understands it needs locals on its side, Sinks said. One stereotype about the flood of new recruits — that most are military veterans who arrive with a gung-ho attitude after serving on the more-frenetic southern border with Mexico — is based at least in part in fact, Sinks said: All new agents spend at least a year down south before they can move to other posts. When they arrive up north, they get a little indoctrination about the need to apply the brakes. “A lot of the same tactics are used,” Sinks said. “It’s just a lot slower pace” in the north.

Agents, DeHaan said, “need to realize, OK, these are normal people. Let’s not keep aggravating them. “I do believe they are coming to that conclusion. It just takes a while.” He tries to stay in good humor about it all. Sometimes, if he sees the nearby remote camera aimed for long stretches straight at his home, DeHaan will call the hotline and give them some business: “Would you please get that damn camera off our house?” Then, watching out the window, he and wife Cheryl will see it sheepishly sweep away in another direction. DeHaan likes to think that eventually, America will grasp its own overreaction, and things will ebb back the other way. He plans to be here to see that. If he can’t beat the big new Border Patrol, he may well outlast it. It’s not like he has much choice. “You don’t just pick up a 500-cow dairy farm and move it away.”

never dream of interfering with legitimate Border Patrol work. “I always felt that it was a privilege to live near the border and be the first line of defense,” he said. His father often told stories about bootleggers skulking along dirt roads in the area. And he’s seen plenty of foot traffic on or near his property for years. “If we saw anything out of the ordinary, we would call,” he recalled. “I knew the Border Patrol because there were only five or six of them. “Now, there are so many new ones, they treat me as some common criminal.” Beyond that, he and others question the steady surge in agent numbers in a sector where actual Border Patrol interceptions have noticeably decreased in recent years.

Peninsula Voices Occupy movement The letter writer in the PDN’s Nov. 6 Commentary section [“‘Occupy’ Critic”] got it mostly right. The Occupy Wall Street movement misunderstands how we got here. Over the last three decades, U.S. job growth occurred almost exclusively in government, health care, the service sector and construction. In contrast, the U.S. has lost 42,000 factories and 290,000 manufacturing jobs per year since 2001 (http://tinyurl. com/7d4flnd and http:// In reality, this is an inverted miasma that not even a great socialist country, such as Germany or Denmark, could make work.

They want their kids to finish out the school year. All kinds of reasons. Some are heartbreaking, others not so much. For those who do take the deal, at the appointed date and time, I meet them at their former home. I walk the yard and enter every room. I open every drawer and cupboard, making sure the house is clean and doesn’t have old engines, toxic chemicals or dead dogs lingering anywhere. Sometimes the kids are there, waiting in the car. I see the marks on the wall showing how they grew over the years. I see the anguished poetry scribbled on the wall by stoned teenagers. One woman handed me the key to her reinforced bedroom door — during the divorce her now-ex-husband was still living in the house, and she had to barricade herself in at night. Another said, “Right there is where I found my son.” If they didn’t clean out the house, I have to ask them to sign a waiver stating that everything left inside can be disposed of. Hospital beds. Hundreds of boxes of shoes.

A mannequin. A second grader’s homework portfolio. A wedding album filled with pictures with one person torn out. Get-rich-quick “business plans.” Sometimes I linger as I check the basement for mold and lead. I am the final period on so many significant chapters. I feign dispassion, but I’m not fooling anybody. There is no difference between myself and these people. The house keys are peeled from a ring. Sometimes they thank me. Sometimes they cry. I wait for their car to vanish before I put up the sign. To most everybody else it is just another house on just another block in just another city in just another financial catastrophe. But I was there. I saw the dream end. At least I don’t make them turn out the lights one last time as they leave. That’s my job.

Kittredge I Kudos to the Peninsula Daily News. The newspaper did an excellent job on the Nov. 10 article about the activist, Kit Kittredge, and her trip to Israel to call attention to the plight of the Palestinians in Gaza [“Back Home On Peninsula/Activist Arrested At Sea for Sending Supplies To Palestinians, Calls Israel a ‘Rogue Government’”]. I hope the PDN will demonstrate the same concern and thoroughness the next time the Palestinians in Gaza are launching rockets into Israel and/or blowing up buses full of innocent people. John J.

Kittredge II The fact that [Quilcene activist] Kit Kittredge has her political opinions and biases and acts on them is her business. That this newspaper puts her on the front page, quotes her political opinions and biases as if they are news and dramatizes her as a hero is nothing but unconscionable.

Furniture with baggage A MILITARY ANTIQUITIES dealer in Solana Beach, Calif., who was planning to auction Adolf Hitler’s inkwell desk set said last week that he and its owner could not agree on a starting bid price and the item has been returned. Craig Gottlieb, a man of Jewish descent who deals mainly Nazi memorabilia, obtained the desk set in January to auction in the fall. The bronze inkwell set was used by Hitler, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain and French Prime Minister Edouard Daladier to sign the disastrous 1938 Munich Pact, which

Washington quarterback Keith Price is helped up in the end zone after being injured in the USC game Saturday.

Price could sit out game The Associated Press

SEATTLE — The hits are taking a toll on Washington starting quarterback Keith Price. Coach Steve Sarkisian said Monday that Price would not practice and may not start Saturday when the Huskies play at Oregon State. If Price can’t play, redshirt freshman Nick Montana would start against the Beavers. “There is a potential of that,” Sarkisian said. Price was to undergo an MRI exam on Monday on his injured left knee after having to leave the Huskies’ 40-17 loss to USC last Saturday. Sarkisian said he will have a more clear answer about the extent of the injury following those tests. “We don’t think it is significant from a long-term standpoint, but we want to make sure of that,” Sarkisian said. “We want to monitor the swelling of the knee. It’s a lot more swollen than it has been, so we have to monitor it very closely.” Price has endured multiple injuries during the season. Both ankles and now both knees have been hurt. He’s tried to smile and limp through it, but he finally may be forced to take a week off. Price’s latest injury came as he tried to track down an errant snap and was swarmed in the end zone by USC’s defense. In the pileup he was twisted around, injuring his left knee. Another sack early in the third quarter ended Price’s day. He was visibly upset on the sideline when he was not allowed back into the game. Price was torrid early in the season, at one point among the national leaders in pass efficiency and touchdowns. He went without a TD toss against USC, the first time this season he didn’t have one. Montana played the final 1½ quarters against USC after getting spot duty recently. He was 9 for 15 for 73 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown pass to Kasen Williams against the Trojans and is 13 for 20 for 147 yards this season, with a an interception. “We’ll prepare ourselves for Nick Montana to make his first start Saturday,” Sarkisian said. “If things change, then things change. But I think you have to prepare for that so you don’t get caught off guard late in the week.” The timing of a quarterback change is never good. This one comes with Washington already in a tailspin. Washington has lost three of its last four games to fall to 6-4. After becoming bowl eligible with a win over Arizona, the Huskies have lost consecutive blowouts to fourthranked Oregon and No. 18 USC. The Huskies are falling behind early and struggling to rally.

A taste of Alaska Recruits from up north to boost Pirate women By Brad LaBrie

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — It won’t be so easy to push the Pirates around this season. That couldn’t be said about the Peninsula College women’s basketball program the past two years as the Pirates were bullied by top NWAACC teams. This year the Pirates expect to do some pushing of their own. And that’s thanks to a strong recruiting class from Alaska. “I’m really excited about the team we have this year,” thirdyear coach Allison Crumb said. “I don’t think it will resemble the last two teams we had.” Crumb’s first two teams struggled to get wins, managing just five victories last year. Turnovers killed the Pirates a year ago, returning sophomore point guard/shooting guard Megan Smith said. “We made really bad choices

College Hoops on the court last year,” Smith said. “Turnovers was a problem.” The Pirates will have a makeover with only two returning sophomores but the freshman-dominated team won’t be backing down from other squads. “We’re a lot faster and stronger than we were last year,” Smith said. “We are smarter and we are very talented. We see the court better than we did last year and we make a lot less turnovers.” An unusual element of this group of players who haven’t played together before is how quickly it is meshing. “Our bond is stronger this year,” Smith said. Crumb, a former Port Angeles High School standout basketball player, said she has

Pirates open at Clark invite THE PENINSULA COLLEGE women’s basketball team opens the season at the eight-team Clark Igloo Invitational in Vancouver, Wash., on Nov. 18. The Pirates take on the Southwestern Oregon (SWOCC) Lakers in the first round at 2 p.m. “That will be a battle,” Peninsula coach Allison Crumb said. never seen a team come together as quickly as this Pirates squad. That’s probably because most of the recruits are from Alaska. “They grew up playing together or against each other,” Crumb said. They bonded even before their first official team meeting with Crumb. “They already knew each other and were practicing together,” Crumb said.

Players reject NBA offer Season officially ‘really in jeopardy’ The Associated Press

NEW YORK — NBA players rejected the league’s latest offer Monday and began disbanding the union, likely jeopardizing the season. “We’re prepared to file this antitrust action against the NBA,” union executive director Billy Hunter said. “That’s the best situation where players can get their due process.” And that’s a tragedy as far as NBA Commissioner David Stern is concerned. “It looks like the 2011-12 season is really in jeopardy,” Stern said in an interview aired on ESPN. “It’s just a big charade. To do it now, the union is ratcheting up, I guess, to see if they can scare the NBA owners or something. That’s not happening.” Hunter said players were not prepared to agree to Stern’s ultimatum to accept the current proposal or face a worse one, saying they thought it was “extremely unfair.” And they’re aware what this

“SWOCC has a really good program. They are usually in the NWAACC Tournament. “Preseason is really fun. We get to see teams that we don’t play in the regular season but that we will see in the tournament.” Other teams at the season-opening tourney are Umpqua, Columbia Basin, Seattle, Centralia, Portland and host Clark. Brad LaBrie The players were hanging out in the gym, got together and began playing and practicing together. Freshman recruits Taylor Larson and Karli Brakes — former teammates from Class 4A Juneau-Douglas High School of Juneau, Alaska — both said they have played with or against every Alaska recruit on the team.

Surrounded by NBA players, Players Association president Derek Fisher, center, speaks at a news conference in New York on Monday. battle might cost them. “We understand the consequences of potentially missing the season; we understand the consequences that players could potentially face if things don’t go our way, but it’s a risk worth taking,” union vice president Maurice Evans said. “It’s the right move to do.” But it’s risky. The league already has filed a pre-emptive lawsuit seeking to prove the lockout is legal and contends that without a union that collectively bargained them, the players’ guaranteed contracts could legally be voided. During oral arguments on

Nov. 2, the NBA asked U.S. District Judge Paul Gardephe to decide the legality of its lockout, but he was reluctant to wade into the league’s labor mess. Gardephe has yet to issue a ruling. Stern, who is a lawyer, had urged players to take the deal on the table, saying it’s the best the NBA could offer and advised that decertification is not a winning strategy. Players ignored that warning, choosing instead to dissolve its union, giving them a chance to win several billion dollars in triple damages in an antitrust lawsuit.

PORT TOWNSEND — Two Forks teams and one from Sequim will compete for Battle of the Bridge youth football trophies at Memorial Field on Saturday. The Sequim Wolf Pack A team beat Neah Bay 32-0 while Forks B squad defeated Chimacum 38-0 and Forks C whipped Port Angeles Green 34-0 to all win North Olympic Youth Football League championships. All three games were held at Sequim High School last Saturday. The three winners now advance to the Battle of the Bridge, which features North Olympic League champions against Kitsap Pee Wee Football champions. The Bridge games start at noon for C teams, 2 p.m. for B squads and 4 p.m. for A or varsity teams. All at Memorial Field. Turn

Crumb finally has the talent to implement the style she likes to play: breakaway basketball. “We are going to be fast-paced, up-and-down the court,” she said. “We have the people that will allow us to push the whole game.” This is the year that women’s basketball plans to join the three other elite programs on campus. Men’s soccer and basketball both are defending NWAACC champions (the soccer team is on the verge of its second title in a row) while women’s soccer is in the Final Four tournament for the first time. “Our goal is to make the NWAACC tournament,” Smith said. “I see this team making a name for the women’s program.”

American affiliate fined $900,000 for coop-up BY JOAN LOWY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — The Department of Transportation said Monday it has fined a regional affiliate of American Airlines $900,000 for keeping hundreds of passengers cooped up for hours on planes in Chicago earlier this year. The fine is a clear warning to airlines on the eve of the holiday travel season that similar incidents won’t be tolerated. American Eagle Airlines had tarmac delays of more than three hours on 15 flights arriving at O’Hare International Airport on May 29, the department said in a statement. A total of 608 passengers were aboard the delayed flights. The airline must pay $650,000 of the fine within 30 days, the department said. But up to $250,000 can be credited for refunds, vouchers, and frequent flier mile awards provided to the passengers on the 15 flights, as well as to passengers on future flights that violate the three-hour rule, the department said.

April 2010 rule The department implemented a new rule in April 2010 limiting tarmac delays on domestic flights to three hours. After that, airlines must either return to a gate or provide passengers who wish to leave planes with some other means of safely getting off. Airlines that violate the rule can be fined as much as $27,500 per passenger. The rule has since been extended to international flight delays, which are capped at four hours.


An American Eagle jet taxis at Boston’s Logan International Airport in January. “We put the tarmac rule in place to protect passengers, and we take any violation very seriously,” Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said in a statement. “We will work to ensure that airlines and airports coordinate their resources and plans to avoid keeping passengers delayed on the tarmac.” American Eagle blamed the delays on airport congestion caused by a slowmoving weather system. The airline said it has apologized to passengers and provided either travel vouchers or frequent flyer program mileage credit. “We take our responsibility to comply with all of the department’s requirements very seriously and have already put in place processes to avoid such an occurrence in the future,” American Eagle President and CEO Dan Garton said in a statement. American and American Eagle are owned by AMR Corp. of Fort Worth, Texas. AMR is in the process of spinning off American Eagle into a separate company.

The airline is the first to be fined for violating the three-hour rule since it took effect 20 months ago. The fine also represents the largest penalty to be paid by an airline in a consumer protection case not involving civil rights violations, although airlines have paid much higher fines for violating federal safety regulations.

Triggered by complaints The rule was prompted by a series of incidents in which passengers complained of being kept virtual prisoners on planes in sight of an airport terminal. In one famous incident on Valentine’s Day 2007, snow and ice in the northeast led to JetBlue Airways stranding hundreds of passengers on 10 planes on the tarmac at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport for up to 10½ hours. In August 2009, 47 people were stuck overnight aboard a cramped Continental Express plane with a stinking toilet and crying babies after an employee for another airline refused to let them inside a closed

airport terminal in Rochester, Minn., where the plane was diverted due to thunderstorms. LaHood has hailed the three-hour delay rule as a success. Between May 2010 and April 2011, the first 12 months after the time limit was in effect, airlines reported 20 tarmac delays of more than three hours, none of which was more than four hours long. In contrast, during the 12 months before the rule took effect, airlines had 693 tarmac delays of more than three hours, and 105 of the delays were longer than four hours But airlines, which opposed the three-hour limit, say passengers have paid a price. In order to avoid steep fines, airlines are more likely now to cancel flights than risk a fine by pushing up against the three-hour limit to see if they can get passengers to their destination. A recent Government Accountability Office report confirmed that has been the case: “As our analysis has shown, the rule appears to be associated with an increased number of cancellations for thousands of additional passengers — far more than DOT initially predicted — including some who might not have experienced a tarmac delay.” And lengthy delays haven’t entirely disappeared. A freak October snow storm and trouble with landing guidance systems at two New York-area airports recently caused more than 20 flights to be diverted to Bradley International Airport in Hartford, Conn., overwhelming the smaller airport.

A shorter school year next for us? OLYMPIA — Washington school superintendents are pushing for a shorter school year as a budget fix. In letters and meetings, educators are telling lawmakers that taking a week off the calendar spreads any budget cut more fairly than other money-saving proposals such as reducing state aid to rural or property-poor districts. School leaders also contend that after three years of diluting programs as state dollars declined, going to a shorter year may stem any further erosion. There has been talk about a shorter school

Tom Carper, D-Del., and Tom Coburn, R-Okla., have introduced legislation that would require Medicare officials to share fraud data with law enforcement and contractors, as well as put accuracy requirements into the payment administration contracts. Medicare officials said they are working diligently to give contractors access to data. They also said the investigation was conducted during early stages of the transition, so many issues have since been addressed. They agreed contractors should have access to data, but the agency has not indicated that improved access has been put in place.

MIAMI — Contractors paid tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to detect fraudulent Medicare claims are using inaccurate and inconsistent data that makes it extremely difficult to catch bogus bills submitted by crooks, according to an inspector general’s report released Monday. Medicare’s contractor system has morphed into a complicated labyrinth, with one set of contractors paying claims and another combing through those claims in an effort to stop an estimated $60 billion a year in fraud. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services inspector general’s report found repeated problems among the fraud contractors over a decade and systemic failures by federal health officials to adequately supervise them. Health officials are supposed to look at key criteria to find out whether contractors are effectively doing their job — for instance, how many investigations the contractors initiate. But investigators found that health officials sometimes ignored whether contractors were opening any investigations at all. The contractors are supposed to detect fraud by checking basic data, such as what type of service was given, how much of it was given and how much it cost. But not all contractors were looking at the same types of data, and some of the information was inaccurate.

In 2010, inspector general officials testified on Capitol Hill that contractors reviewing fraud in Medicare’s prescription drug program also faced serious problems. One contractor didn’t receive certain data until nearly one year after being awarded the contract. Once it received the data, key parts were missing or incorrect. Another contractor didn’t have access to certain data before its contract ended. In Monday’s report, contractors also said they had difficulty obtaining data they needed and said that daily access to real-time Medicare claims data is critical. One contractor said it eventually had to buy the data from another contractor, which caused a 30-day delay. The contractors generProblems persist ated only about 100 cases Critics say fraud contrac- each of potential fraud tors have been revamped over the years, but nagging problems persist.

The same issues were identified 10 years ago by inspector general investigators, and dozens of reports in the past decade also have found problems. In 2001, acting Inspector General Michael Mangano testified that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services wasn’t doing a good job of holding contractors accountable. “The issues we identified have been problematic for some time and present a serious obstacle” to overseeing the contractors, Inspector General Daniel R. Levinson wrote in Monday’s report. Medicare officials have repeatedly said the latest system of fraud contractors was designed to fix the problems with earlier contractors and allow the agency to better monitor them.

Humane Society seeks funds for ailing animals Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — The Olympic Peninsula Humane Society is seeking donors to “Jerry’s Fund,” a special fund that was created several years ago to raise money for the medical care of ill or injured animals at

the shelter. The fund allows the Humane Society to seek additional veterinary care or advanced testing for animals received at the shelter with serious injuries or illness. Because the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society

is an open-door shelter, no animal can be turned away. This typically means the facility is at capacity with cats and dogs and its resources are often strained. Adding an animal with a severe injury or illness to the mix is challenging.

“Jerry’s Fund” was created in honor of a very ill springer spaniel puppy that came to the Humane Society several years ago. When the story of the puppy’s plight was released, the community responded with donations for his care.

The puppy died before it could be treated but his legacy lives on through the special fund. The fund has diminished in the last few years but the need hasn’t. The community can help the shelter can provide life saving medical treatments

to animals which desperately need it. The shelter is open to the public from noon to 4:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. For more information, phone the Humane Society at 360-457-8206.

REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS 2012 On-Call Construction Management Services The City of Port Angeles 321 E. Fifth Street, Port Angeles, WA 98362 The City of Port Angeles, Public Works and Utilities Department is requesting qualification (RFQ) for construction management and inspection services. The City intends to select a single firm under an on-call Professional Services Agreement (Agreement). Scope: The intent of the request for proposals is to select a firm and enter into negotiations for an agreement to provide construction management and inspection services. As individual needs for construction management and inspection services arise, the parties will negotiate the scope of work and fee and formalize it in a project authorization. The Agreement will remain in force and effect for inclusion of additional “Tasks” for three years from the effective date of the Agreement. Hourly rates will be established for each performance year of the Agreement. Task 1: Phase 1 Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Project, Project No. 06-01 The Phase I CSO Project is generally located along the shoreline of Port Angeles Harbor, at the City of Port Angeles Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), and at the former Rayonier mill site. The strategy of the project is to increase flow conveyance capacity to the existing WWTP, increase the conveyance capacity of raw sewage from Pump Station 4, increase the capacity of the existing WWTP, utilize an existing 5MG above-ground storage tank on adjacent property to store flows in excess of the WWTP capacity, and improve the WWTP outfall by placing an abandoned industrial outfall into service to increase overall flow capacity, and the depth and location of the diffusers. The project work area extends from downtown Port Angeles, along the waterfront and the Olympic Discovery Trail, through the former Rayonier mill site, and to the City’s WWTP, a distance of about 1.7 miles. The former Rayonier mill site is a Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA) site currently being cleaned up under an Agreed Order between Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) and Rayonier LLC (Rayonier). Soil and groundwater handling from excavations on the former Rayonier mill site will be subject to agreements and coordination with Rayonier and Ecology. Excavated materials and sediments will be transferred to Rayonier control consistent with a Materials Management Plan prepared by Rayonier and approved by Ecology. Construction water will be discharged to the WWTP after pretreatment. All project excavations will be subject to archaeological monitoring and a federal memorandum of agreement with a number of Tribes. Highlights of some of the design features include demolition of various site features; piping inserted into approximately 5,800 LF of existing abandoned water pipeline; open cut construction for approximately 5300 LF, of which 4600 LF is on the MTCA site; construction of structures for managing flow including an influent diversion structure and a return flow pump station; rehabilitation and alteration of an existing 5MG storage tank; a 100 foot long concrete girder bridge over Ennis Creek; construction of a gravity outfall pipeline that connects to existing industrial pipes and to an existing industrial marine outfall; and modifications to the existing WWTP. The current anticipated award of the construction contract is scheduled for late April 2012. The project is expected to have a 550 calendar day performance period. The construction contract budget range is $15M $20M. The full RFQ, and other documents for this project are available free-of change on-line through Builders Exchange of Washington. To access project bid documents (plans, specifications, addenda, and Bidders List) is provided to Prime Bidders, Subcontractors, and Vendors by going to and clicking on Posted Projects, Goods and Services, and City of Port Angeles. This online plan room provides Bidders with fully usable online documents with the ability to: download, view, print, order full/partial plan sets from numerous reprographic sources, and a free online digitizer/take-off tool. It is recommended that Bidders “Register” in order to receive automatic e-mail notification of future addenda and to place themselves on the “Self-Registered Bidders List". Bidders that do not register will not be automatically notified of addenda and will need to periodically check the on-line plan room for addenda issued on this project. Contact Builders Exchange of Washington at (425) 258-1303 should you require assistance with access or registration. All Statements of Qualifications must be received no later than December 14, 2011 2:00 PM Pacific Time. A pre-submittal project(s) tour will be held at 9:00 am, Tuesday, November 22, 2011. Interviews will be held on January 3rd, 4th and 5th, 2012. Minority and women owned businesses shall be afforded full opportunity to respond to this invitation, shall not be discriminated against on the grounds of gender, race, color, age, national origin or handicap in consideration of an award of any contract or subcontract, and shall be actively solicited for participation in this project by direct mailing of the invitation to respond to such businesses as have contacted the City for such notification.

DEAR ABBY: I have been battling breast cancer and have been blessed to have a lot of support from family, friends and some awesome medical providers. My husband’s best friend and his wife socialize with us quite often, and the friendship is important to him. I recently celebrated a birthday and these friends had us over for a belated birthday dinner. They bought me beautiful flowers and a gift. The card attached made a joke about my “aging breasts,” which she found quite funny. Abby, I had a mastectomy, which she knew about! To make matters worse, my hair has just started to grow back from the chemo, so I decided to have some highlights put in, and she told me she didn’t like my new hair. I am hurt and dumbfounded by her insensitive behavior. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time she has said things like this. How do I tell her I’m offended by her rudeness without compromising my husband’s friendship with them? Harried Friend

For Better or For Worse

Tuesday, November 15, 2011


by Garry Trudeau

by Eugenia Last

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Work behind the scenes. Finish your work before you reveal what you are trying to accomplish. It’s better to surprise everyone than to fall short of the expectations you have raised in others. 3 stars

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Do what you can to improve your home and domestic life financially and emotionally. You’ll face criticism if you are too busy pleasing outsiders instead of the ones who are always in your corner. Do something nice for the ones you love. 2 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You need a change of pace and a change of scenery. Make plans that will allow you the freedom to interact with people who can contribute to some of your ideas and plans for the future. Love is highlighted during the evening hours. 3 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Short trips are highlighted. Engage in conversation that brings you knowledge about something you want to pursue. Getting the OK from people you love will be easy if you are straightforward about the details. 4 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be careful how you approach touchy topics when dealing with friends, relatives or your lover. Kindness and compassion will help you get what you want; criticism will not. Expand your interests if it will help you share a special moment with someone. 4 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your desire for change may not make everyone close to you happy. Your best bet is to inch your way in the direction you want without making a big splash. Once you have things in order you can share your plans and your success. 3 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Not everyone will be on your side. Be careful when sharing your ideas and plans, especially with colleagues or someone who can make an impact on your future. Allow a little time for something entertaining. It will lift your spirits. 2 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Communication can resolve misunderstandings. Engage in heartfelt communication and you will find out where you stand with people in your personal and professional world. Diplomacy and charm will help you win trust as well as favors. 3 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Share your feelings. Added responsibilities can be lifted if you are honest about what you can and are willing to do and what you are not. Don’t be afraid to apply a little pressure if someone gives you a hard time. 3 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Question anyone who is dubious. It’s up to you to ferret out any information that you need to know before making a decision, especially if it has to do with your income. Someone from your past may be the ideal partner in your future. 5 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Watch what you say if you socialize. Not everyone will share your opinion, and you may be judged harshly. Greater effort put into earning a living or finding ways to subsidize your income will bring positive results as well as praise. 5 stars

The Family Circus

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Getting along with others will be half the battle. Put your time and effort into building a strong and stable base at home emotionally, financially and physically. Spend time with the people who really mean something to you. 3 stars

Today’s weather will probably be the best of any day this week. Except in the mountains and along the coast, the Peninsula should be dry with even a bit of sunshine. Starting overnight, a warm front from the southwest will overspread the Peninsula, raising temperatures a little bit and bringing occasionally heavy rains. By Thursday, a cold front from British Columbia will bring cooler temperatures and showers — with snow in the mountains. That pattern will continue well into the weekend.
